For the first time ever in ballhockey history, a shootout had to decide which team would move up to the final. This had become necessary as Slovakia and Czech Republic were all tied up after the round robin.

Ondřej Palička did it better 2 to 0 for the Czech Republic. The pressure was big for Adrian Palak, but he handled it well, and brought his colors back.
