Czechia Tops Slovakia in Tournament Opener

The opening game of the World Junior Championship saw Czechia come from behind to beat their bitter Slovakian rivals 5-4 on Tuesday. 

It was the first meeting between the two nations since 2015, when Czechia shut out the Slovaks 2-0. The two teams have met many times in other minor events, but this was the first important meeting between the two nations in quite some time.
