In the opening game of the 2017 IIHF Ice Hockey World Championship Team Belarus faced Finns. It was pretty symbolic, as this year Belarus is applying for co-hosting the Worlds in 2021 and the only opponent is Finland.
At the very beginning of the game Belarusians missed two goals but managed to calm down and come back into the game. Young Yegor Sharangovich and Yevgeni Kovyrshin replied for Belarus.
