NBCSN is showing the USA v. Switzerland game today, starting right now (11:15 am MT). The US is coming off a fantastic win against Finland (5-0). The worst part of the game was at the very end when Anssi Salmela of Finland took a run at Alex Goligoski of the USA and sent him hard, head first, into the boards. Salmela was suspended for three games. Goligoski will be back today, thankfully.

Switzerland has already been eliminated from the tournament, so this game is nothing more than playing spoiler and showing pride for them.

Paul Stastny has six points (2g/4a), has won 71-of-111 faceoffs (64%) and is +4 in six games for Team USA.


FYI: Ryan O'Reilly shined in his first game back after sitting out due to a lower body injury. He scored two goals in Canada's win over Belarus (5-1). The win puts Canada in first place in Group A in the preliminary round.

O'Reilly has four points (2g/2a), has won 64-of-104 faceoffs (61.5%) and is +2 in six games for Team Canada.
