Beating France and Austria does not necessarily mean the Czech Republic’s form has improved at the Ice Hockey World Championship, according to star player Jaromír Jágr. After defeats to Sweden and Canada and a win over Latvia, the Czechs have dispatched the two relative minnows in recent days. However, Jágr told journalists that he and his teammates had to play as much as possible outside their own defensive zone and rediscover the form in power plays that they displayed in their opening two games. The Czechs next game is against another unfancied team, Germany, on Sunday.
