This is it - the biggest ice hockey event of the year is here and the games are on.
Our first game was always going to be a tough challenge against the host country Spain. They have a strong team and home advantage - one of the favourites to win the tournament - but we went into the game to give it our all no matter what. We fought hard but on this occasion it wasn't enough and Spain won fair and square by a final score of 11-1.
First game done and we just have to put it behind us and learn from it. Thoughts are now in the next game against Iceland tomorrow! Pumped!
