Two games haven't decided the fate of the two relegation round combatants at the 2014 World Junior Championship, so Germany and Norway will play one more to decide which team will compete at the 2015 WJC next year in Canada.

Norway posted a surprising 3-0 win over Germany on Thursday, setting the stage for a closely contested second game on Friday that was won by the Germans, 4-3. The relegation round is now a best-of-three series, so the rubber match will take place on medal day at the 2014 WJC.

Hockey's Future writers Chapin Landvogt and Derek O'Brien are in Malmo, Sweden for this tournament. In this HF podcast, they preview the final game of the relegation round at the 2014 WJC.
