Switzerland up 3-2 over Russia with around 2:00 to go in the 3rd.

EDIT: Russia ties it up at 3 with a late PP goal.

Who would've thought Switzerland would give so many teams a run for their money? I hope they win just... well just because!

I would rather have Russia in the semis than Switzerland. So GO RUSSIA GO!

It's almost painful to watch Switzerland at the penalty shots.

Well, we don't usually play well vs Switzerland.

What bothered me about the swiss is that most of them skated so damn slow during the penalty shots.

Not watching it. Guessing Russia won it?

Man Russia really dodged a bullet there. BTW Stebro, how does Tom Nilsson look?

He's been one of our better d-men, playing quite physical at times. But to be honest Sweden have looked really average so far, hopefully the whole team can step it up vs Russia.

Who would've thought Switzerland would give so many teams a run for their money? I hope they win just... well just because!

Quite impressive, Swiss have not lost in regulation at all, twice in OT (Sweden, Czech Rep.) and twice in SO (Russia, Finland).

Its amazing to see how far the Czechs have fallen.

It is a very sad picture. Lack of the national program is the main problem. Honestly I was hoping the Swiss would beat us in the round robin and Finns got at least a point with Swedes so the Czechs would be eliminated. Anyway, Switzerland beats us for the fifth tomorrow.

For last decade or so the results of our national team at whatever level are rather lame but we always manage to get a medal here and there which gives the ammunition to certain people within the Czech Ice Hockey Federation and silences the critics of current system. Only blow-outs like 7-0 QF loss with the US can shake up the things. The more we suffer right know the better for the future.

The Czechs were often charachterized by strong team play, which has evaporated in the last decade. Our teams may look on paper quite good but it is always bunch of individuals who pursue individual interests, very often uninterested, not commited enough, not willing enough, just having a fun on a road trip.

I was so annoyed by our coverage from this tournament, because our players complained all the time about the cold, food, traffic, arena etc. I can magine that many things in the city of Ufa are far from perfect, but all the other teams cope with that too. But this gives you kind of perspective what their mental attitude to this tournament was. They expected good trip, lots of fun, but instead it was cold and nothing to do in the middle of Mother Russia. Good that they were humiliated by the US.
