Martin Frk scores twice as the Czech Republic downs Latvia 4-2 at world juniors

UFA, Russia - Martin Frk scored twice Sunday as the Czech Republic beat Latvia 4-2 to clinch a spot in the next round at the world junior hockey championship.

Petr Beranek and Dmitriij Jaskin also scored for the Czechs in the Pool A matchup. Roberts Lipsbergs and Nikita Evpalovs replied for Latvia, which is winless at the tournament.

Jaskin's goal with just 6:14 left in regulation broke a 2-2 tie.

The Czechs have six points, good for second place in Pool A, but still have a chance to finish first.

With the loss, the winless Latvians (0-0-4) now head to the relegation round.

Quote of the Day

I spent a long summer thinking about that playoff series and what could have been. [The Blackhawks] ended up being the Stanley Cup champions, so we know we lost to a very good team. It's tough to know how close we were, and it motivates us for this year.
