Red Wings at the Worlds: Kindl scores but stomach-bug-ailing Czechs lose to Denmark

As has become usual in Red Wings-at-the-World Championships recaps, I've got some good news and some bad news regarding Jakub Kindl and the Czech Republic's game against Denmark this morning (Tomas Tatar's Slovaks will battle Italy at 1:45 PM EDT, too):

The good news is that the beleagured Red Wings defenseman scored the Czechs' 3-1 goal, he took 3 shots and played 22:17.

The bad news? The Czechs, who are battling the same stomach bug that's ailing the Slovaks, surrendered their 3-1 lead and ended up losing 4-3 in a shootout, which is...a bit of an upset, to say the least.

The IIHF's Peter Westermark describes Kindl's goal as follows:

At the buzzer [ending the second period], Morten Green was called for handling the puck, giving the Czech’s their fifth opportunity of the night with the man advantage to start the third. The Danes survived, but the Czechs sustained their pressure even after Denmark had returned to full strength, and five minutes into the third, it was 3-1 after Jakub Kindl’s shot from the point sailed past a screened Nielsen in the Danish net.

Seems like Kindl’s been reliable so far.
