After winning in overtime against Poland and losing to Belarus the second night, in the third game Hungary took on Slovakia who had been undefeated heading into the third game of the Olympic Hope Tournament.
Head coach Glen Williamson and his coaching staff kept the lineup the same except that Balázs Tóth started in net in place of Martin Szeles who was serving as the backup.
Slovakia looked like the better team in the first period however Tóth made a number of big saves to keep it close. Slovakia took a 1-0 lead at the midway point of the first period from a shot high in the slot.
The game stayed 1-0 in the favor of Austria for long time, in the second period with Hungary on a 4 on 3 power play András Molnár took a shot from just inside of the blue line that made it through the crowd and into the back of the net to make it 1-1. In the closing minutes of the period there was a scuffle behind the Slovak goal in the end both teams had two players each get thrown from the game for fighting.
The game stayed locked at 1-1 until ten minutes left in the game when Slovakia managed to score to go back up by one. Later in the period in under a minute Slovakia scored twice to go up 4-1. They would go to hold on for the 4-1 win and the tournament win.
