Tournament record[edit]

Olympic Games[edit]

During qualification for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Slovakia defeated Bulgaria 82–0.[2] This win is the most lopsided in the history of the IIHF. The Slovakians outshot Bulgaria 142–0, averaging a goal on 58.9 percent of its shots. Slovakia averaged one goal every 44 seconds. Janka Culikova led Slovakia with 10 goals, while Martina Velickova scoring nine. The game broke the Guinness World Record for the highest score in a single ice hockey game.[3]

At the Olympics, however, they lost 18–0 to Canada,[4] marking the most lopsided victory in Olympic competition.
