Trailing behind 0-3 midway through the second period, the Belarusian team found strength to battle back and level off the game before the second break. In the final stanza Mikhail Zakharov's men scored four more times to seal a 7-3 victory.

This year's tournament is featuring six teams divided into two groups. Competing for the Tatra Cup are five countries: Slovakia's HK Poprad and HC Kosice, France's Nice HCA, Germany's Bayreuth, and Hungary's Dunaujvaros.

The medal games will be held on 20 August.
