What a game for Radko Gudas.
The Philadelphia Flyers defenseman sought vengeance for the injury to teammate Jake Voracek earlier in the game with a huge hip check on Mikko Rantanen before starting the comeback late in the third period.
Gudas lined up his man with great positioning and destroyed him with a hip check.
A patented Gudas hip check.
He went flying.
But Gudas is a goal-scorer for Czech Republic as well.
Late in the third period he scored the goal to bring them back within one, before they went on to win it in a shootout.
What a blast.
It was a great comeback win for the Czechs and a great game from Gudas himself! He now has two goals in three games this tournament.
