    Mexico-New Zealand was likely the gold medal game barring any unexpected upsets. And New Zealand won it, plain and simple, because they got much better goaltending than Mexico did.

    I believe the NZL vs CHI will be the Gold Medal game.

    Dont really think the MEX vs NZL game was the gold medal game today.

    Really dissapointed RSA lost the BUL game now! We should have at least had that game in the bag however the BUL goalie really held it in there as well today!

    Well, that was some prediction. Bulgaria beat RSA against all odds and made a big step towards stay in this division. Their goaltending was excellent, seems like legendary Konstantin Mikhaylov has a worthy successor.

    I hope nobody put money on my predictions.

    It was the goaltending show today by the looks of it.
    Dimitrov absolutely stole that one for Bulgaria, outshot 53-26 ... huge game there.
    Parry, we knew how good he could be and looks like he really stepped up today.
    And of course Loginov stealing a point where I really didn't think he would with the couple scratches for Israel.

    Good show all around.

    Crazy championship...

    Well... Seems like only China wants the gold... Now only Mexico will have the opportunity to make this only craziest tomorrow, but only with De Alba behind the goal.

    Definitely a huge surprise to see China doing so well and on the verge of promotion. Didn't expect that out of them at all.

    This Chinese team looks much, much better than in years past. Much quicker. Much smarter in their decision making. Meanwhile, these are guys that either didn't play in the Asia League, or did very little there in terms of number of games and/or impact. Maybe the China Dragon roster should be in for an overhaul.

    Israel with a crucially important win for them today, 6-3 over South Africa. Alexander Loginov continues to shine in goal for the Israelis, and has brought much needed stability in between the pipes for the first time in a long time.

    Israel got Dan Spivak and Isaac Levy into the lineup today, and got Sergei Frenkel back from his knee injury (though Frenkel didn't seem to be playing at 100%). It paid immediate dividends - Spivak scored Israel's first two goals, added an assist, and was his usual staunch self on defense; Isaac Levy chipped in an assist and played well on a line with Frenkel and brother Shlomi Levy (who also added an assist), and Frenkel had a goal and a couple of assists. Meanwhile, several of Israel's young players have really brought their "A" games to this event and have played very, very well. Shy Maaravi has really stepped up on defense, and Aharonovich (who scored again today), Spektor and Pyshkin (who both added an assist each) continue to play well.

    New head coach Derek Eisler has, in my opinion, done a very good job evaluating Israel's talent and adjusting the lineup quickly over the course of these past three games.

    Really nice mix of experience and youth on this team. This Israeli squad has been a breath of fresh air that gives me hope for the future.

    If they beat Bulgaria, they will be safe from relegation. That is job #1 right now. If they get it done (and I have full confidence that they can and will), then they can try and upset Mexico and snag a medal.

    Chen was more of their more impactful players. There will be some overhaul in goaltending anyway; didn't sound like Alex Westlund would return.

    On topic, I've been rather shocked by China's results thus far because I thought for sure the Ice Blacks would have taken them down.

    Done deal... China goes up... Unespected result but after watching the games they are the fast team in this tournament with better goaltending than the other teams. They play almost without errors in their zone.

    To be fair, their goaltender stole one for them today, as Mexico heavily outshot them. Goalies stealing wins seems to be a recurring theme at this year's Division 2B tournament.

    Can't New Zealand still technically advance, so long as they win their games against South Africa and Bulgaria and the South Africans somehow defeat the Chinese in regulation? I know that is not likely to happen at all, but its not confirmed yet that China is going to advance.

    Not a good start for Israel, as they've allowed 3 goals in the first 4 minutes against Bulgaria.

    Well, I really like my South African friends but it is not going to happen but could a big surprise could take place always, my point will be that the motivation from RSA should come from today's game against NZL and if they obtain in any way a point they will be alive again to stay with a win over China... And if they obtain a point against NZL... no gold medal posibilities for Kiwis... As you see, probabilities are all against anyone except China.

    10-5 Bulgaria wins... but I saw many Israel mistakes and injuries in their principal players... Of course Bulgaria's goalie was the heroe since I think he received around 70 shots in the game...

    **Sigh** - Didn't see this game because I am working, but Israel always seems to have one really bad game per tournament. Looks like goaltending just wasn't there today, or perhaps defense, or perhaps both. Israel outshot Bulgaria 68-37. When you get almost 70 shots in a single game, you should in all likelihood win it. I really expected Israel to win this game, and comfortably at that. Disappointed that it didn't happen today.

    Well done Bulgaria, in the face of everyone here who underestimated them. They showed that they are capable of being a regular IIB member even without their by far the best players like Yotov and Mukhachev. All the credits go to incredible goaltender Dimitrov and top forward young Hodulov who had 7 points vs Israel.

    Odd on Bulgaria was over 7 in Croatia. If someone had courage to put some money on Bul I am sure he is drinking courvoisier already.

    South Africa's upset of New Zealand is a disaster for Israel. Now the Israelis need to find a way to beat Mexico - in regulation - to make sure that they are safe from relegation. Of course, China can still beat South Africa and save the Israelis, and they should have plenty of motivation to do so.....if China wins, they finish undefeated.

    As for the Israelis, the offense has been fine. They need to find a way to be significantly better on defense and in goal if they want to have any chance against a very good Mexican team.

    I reallly couldn' believe what was going on in that first quarter... How can a team with that amount of talent lost in that way (i know that Sherbatov is not there but still they have a good team)... Today we saw two big surprises since I don't remember in recent years a NZL defeat in hands of RSA... I already congratulate my friends in the RSA squad, what a day... Imagine, Bulgaria could win a medal if they defeat NZL next Sunday... Wow!!!

    Israel had last year similar first period against Serbia. But Serbian team you cant compare with Bulgarian team. I assume that yesterday game wasnt a fair game. Israel team sold the game to Bulgarians but i reaaly dont know the reason. Maybe they want to help Bulgarian team to stay in this division?

    Partizanhk.......Israel didn't let Bulgaria win. They just had a really awful, awful first period defensively and in goal. Same thing that happened last year against Serbia. They fired 68 fucking shots at Bulgaria's goal for crying out loud......the effort was there offensively. Dimitrov stood on his head. Meanwhile, Israel should have beaten China but got really unlucky in the shootout, and they got screwed in the first game against New Zealand because they couldn't use Spivak or Isaac Levy, and Frenkel got hurt in the second period.

    How did NZ get 2nd when Mexico had a better goal difference? Does the IIHF use the whole "that team beat your team so they are ranked higher" chestnut?

    Yes, internal games are the first tie breaker:

    Tie breaking formula

    The tie-breaking system for two teams with the same number of points in a standing will be the game between the two teams, the winner of the game taking precedence.

    Due to the fact that the three-point system does not allow a game to end in a tie, then the following tie breaking procedure is applicable when three or more teams are tied in points in a Championship standing.

    Should three or more teams be tied on points, then a tie breaking formula will be applied as follows, creating a sub-group amongst the tied teams. This process will continue until only two or none of the teams remain tied. In the case of two tied teams remaining, the game between the two would then be the determining tie-breaker as the game could not end as a tie. In the case of none of the teams being tied, the criteria specified in the respective step applies.

    Step 1:
    Taking into consideration the games between each of the tied teams, a sub-group is created applying the points awarded in the direct games amongst the tied teams from which the teams are then ranked accordingly.

    Step 2:
    Should three or more teams still remain tied in points then the better goal difference in the direct games amongst the tied teams will be decisive.

    Step 3:
    Should three or more teams still remain tied in points and goal difference then the highest number of goals scored by these teams in their direct games will be decisive

    Step 4:
    Should three or more teams still remain tied in points, goal difference and goals scored then the results between each of the three teams and the closest best-ranked team outside the sub-group will be applied. In this case the tied team with the best result (1. points, 2. goal difference, 3. more goals scored) against the closest best ranked-team will take precedence

    Step 5:
    Should the teams still remain tied, then the results between each of the three teams and the next highest best-ranked team outside the sub-group will be applied.

    Step 6:
    Should the teams still remain tied after these five steps have been exercised then Sport considerations will be applied and the teams will be ranked by their positions coming into the Championship (seeding).
