Yesterday's results

Group C

Sweden 4 Czech Republic 2

Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson scored twice, and Patrik Berglund and Henrik Zetterberg also tallied for the Swedes, who jumped out to a 4-0 lead, chasing Czech starter Jakub Kovar after the third goal. Former Panther Alexander Salak did well in relief. Marek Zidlicky and Jaromir Jagr potted the goals for the Czechs.

Switzerland 1 Latvia 0

AHLer Simon Moser scored with 7.9 seconds to lift the Swiss team past scrappy Latvia. Jonas Hiller made 21 saves to post the shutout, while Edgars Masalskis turned aside 38 shots in a very impressive performance for the losers.
