Olympic Hockey: Canada-Switzerland Open Thread

7:30 PM ET / 4:30 PM PT : Switzerland vs Canada in Group A action

Broadcast details: Live coverage begins at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT on CNBC

Switzerland has one hope and one hope only against the monster Canadian team. His name is Jonas.

Jonas Hiller, of course, the young Swiss phenom goaltender who plays for the Anaheim Ducks in his down time will literally need to stand on his head today of Switzerland wants to win. They're a pretty gritty team, the Swiss, which you wouldn't really expect from such a neutral place. But they can play some solid defense and give a better team fits if that better team isn't clicking on all cylinders.

Just ask the Americans, who defeated Switzerland 3-1 on Tuesday in a game that was much closer than they would've preferred. Canada will need to be on their A game to get by Hiller and Switzerland, and it certainly won't be as easy as blowing by Norway was in their first outing.
