Sweden 1, Switzerland 0
In its first game without captain Henrik Zetterberg, Sweden struggled to find offense, but only needed one goal, as Henrik Lundqvist pitched a shutout and the Swedes improved to 2-0. Reto Berra had a strong game in net for Switzerland, except on the game's decisive goal, when a Berra rebound on a soft shot would lead to a Daniel Alfredsson rebound strike with only 7:21 remaining.
Czech Republic 4, Latvia 2
While it may not have been the complete performance they were looking for, the Czech Republic did get in the win column with a hard-fought 4-2 win over Latvia. The teams traded goals to the tune of a 2-2 tie early in the third period, before tallies by Jakub Voracek and Marek Zidlicky sealed the win for the Czechs.
Canada 6, Austria 0
Jeff Carter entered Canada's game against Austria as the 13th forward. In fairness, Canada has a pretty deep talent pool of players. Carter netted a natural hat trick in the second period, and Canada cruised to a 6-0 win over Austria. Roberto Luongo made 23 saves in net for Canada, who had nine different players record a point.
Finland 6, Norway 1
Kari Lehtonen got the nod for the Finns over Tuukka Rask, and not only backstopped Finland to a blowout victory, but also record two assists. Finland had an easy time dispatching Norway, as Teemu Selanne scored early, and Lauri Korpikoski added a pair of his own. Olli Maatta, the 19-year-old Penguins defenseman, continued his strong tournament with a goal and two assists.
