    According to Hockeybladet, Jacob Markström will be starting goalie in the game against Switzerland. Jhonas Enroth will play against Czech Republic tomorrow.

    I see one of either France, Germany or Switzerland grabbing a surprise win :-)

    Good crowd it looks like during the FRA-SVK game right now. 1-0 through one.

    sounds like quite a bunch of them are Slovaks though (all excited after last year and all)

    3-0 Slovakia right now. Not a good start for the French.

    The game could have gone quite differently, but Staňa has been on fire lately. He's alway been kind of meh at the IHWCs IMO, so maybe this is finally his year.

    5-2 in the third period with about 6 minutes left. I think France have looked good for periods of time but Slovakia's skill and speed have done them in.

    Finland defeated Germany 4-3 into OT. I don't necessarily think that anyone was expecting that to happen.

    In the poll, nobody among the 24 persons who voted chose the Swiss...guess that's
    why we play the games.

    Yeah, we were all expecting Germany to be the favorite and take it easily...

    Seriously though, it was always a very plausible and also acceptable result. It is a fresh team with plenty of skilled but unexperienced players. It will take a while for them to get their bearings together. There was plenty of PP for the Finns though, so they should probably have buried this in regulation. But I don't consider this a shocker.

    Also, with this result, beating the remaining weaker opposition - France, Austria and Latvia - should be enough to secure a QF berth. Any points they can scrape together from Slovakia, USA and Russia is of course a bonus.

    Switzerland vs. Sweden - now THAT was a shocker.

    Watching the highlights, it looks like Switzerland just wanted it more. Though Sweden hitting the posts and Markstrom giving up some weak goals helped.
