Holmström: We wanted to succeed
The United States received an imaginary consolation prize in the form of bronze medals for the third place in the Division B of the World Championship after the victory over Austria on Saturday afternoon. According to the statement of the main coach Holmström they wanted to leave the tournament with success. Unlike his colleague on the Austrian bench the main coach of the USA did not see the problem with the lack of motivation by his team. „When we get so far at the tournament we want to succeed in every match, even though it’s not about qualification any more.“ The main difference between both opponents was in the force at the space in front of the goal from where the USA scored most of their nine goals. „We lost several chances in the semi-final, shooting was much better today,“ he  assessed the match after which his team received the medals for the third place.
