At Thief River Falls, Minn., Petr Vrana and Rostislav Olesz each scored twice to pace the Czechs.

Both of Olesz's goal came in the third period, when the Czechs turned a close game into a laugher. Vrana scored an even-strength goal in the first period, then added a power-play goal in the third.

Michael Frolik, Michal Kvapil and Petr Petruzalek also scored for the Czechs.

Alexey Ugarov and Pavel Asmalouski replied for Belarus.
