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

He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
