Hockey: Czechs lose 6:1 to Sweden


The Czech national hockey team lost 6:1 to Sweden in Stockholm on Thursday, in another leg of the Euro Hockey Tour. The Czechs were only able keep up with the hosts in the first period when Petr Průcha scored the Czech team’s only goal. But serious flaws in defense allowed the Swedes to build an unassailable lead. The Czechs were missing some key players but showed one of their worst performances this season. The Czech national team will play Finland and Russia over the weekend.
