Great Britain suffered their second successive defeat in their World Championship Division One campaign, losing 1-0 to Group A rivals France.
Lyle makes a despairing save in the Group A game with France
The only goal came in the 46th minute when GB captain Jonathan Weaver lost possession in his own zone and Francois Rozenthal lashed home a fierce shot.
Stevie Lyle justified his selection for GB with a series of stunning saves.
But Britain fought valiantly and French netminder Fabrice Lhenry had to post a 19-shot shut-out to secure victory.
David Clarke had an excellent opportunity to put Britain ahead in the first minute of the final period but was denied by the impressive Lhenry.
But hosts France still had the bulk of the play, Rozenthal unlucky to see his shot clip the top of the crossbar and Julien Desrosiers twice denied by Lyle.
Great Britain coach Rick Strachan was full of praise for his players after the defeat in Amiens.
"Every one of them wore the shirt with pride and played with passion," he said.
"We had a few chances but did not get the puck to the net enough. But the style we play we are never going to be pretty, we are a gritty team. France are a skilled team and are very organised."
France counterpart Dave Henderson: "It was a good game of hockey with some excellent goaltending. Our powerplay has been working well lately and that is what it came down to."
After losing 4-3 to Hungary on Monday, Britain's next game is against Germany on Thursday.
Earlier on Tuesday, the Division One Group A favourites kept up their 100% record with a 4-0 win over Japan.
