The game was fairly intense. The first period saw no goals, while the second opened with the Spaniards' successful shot. They used the advantage of the power play 10 seconds before it was over. Nonetheless, the Ukrainians were able to recover, thanks to Danyil Trakht's successful one-on-one attack.

At the start of the third period, Ukraine promptly gained superiority on the ice, and Stanislav Sadovikov scored after a great combination. Hlib Kryvoshapkin responded almost immediately with another goal. Then Viktor Zakharov landed a shot from a relatively considerable distance. During this time, Dmytro Khrystych's men went all in and faced no resistance from Spain, scoring five goals.
