Relegation Round[edit]

The relegation round was played as a best-of-three playoff. The Czech Republic sweep hence rendered the last game unnecessary.[2]

This is the first time any Russian national team has ever been officially relegated since the country began international competition in 1954 as part of the Soviet Union.[3] (The senior Russian women's team finished the 2005 World Championships in a relegation position, but an expansion of the 2007 tournament to nine teams in 2007 granted them a reprieve.)
