The Hockey World Continues To Shrink - Switzerland Defeats Canada In WC

from Andrew Podnieks of IIHF.com,

Reto Suri's second goal of the shootout, in the eighth round, gave Switzerland a 3-2 victory over Canada. It was their second win in the tournament after defeating Sweden on the opening day.

It was also just the second win for the Swiss in 28 all-time meetings with Canada stretching back to 1934.

"The key to our win was defense and being able to skate on the big ice," said Swiss forward Nino Niederreiter, who scored for the second straight game. "In the third period we were feeling that we could achieve something here and did not accept that it was 2-1 in their favour."

Canada (1-1) now has a day off before playing Norway on Tuesday. The Swiss (2-0) play tomorrow against the Czech Republic.
