Team USA to face Switzerland in Olympic quarterfinal, Canada meets Russia

New, comment

It took 10 minutes of overtime plus a shootout, but in the end Switzerland advanced to the Olympic quarterfinal, and a match tomorrow with Team USA by defeating Belarus 3-2. During the 4-on-4 overtime, a critical tripping call on Switzerland's Roman Wick led to a dangerous 4-on-3 power play by Belarus, but Jonas Hiller helped hold off the Belarussians to force the shootout.

And since Canada mopped up Germany 8-2 (read Jim Diamond's game recap for the Nashville perspective), Slovakia fended off Norway and the Czech Republic barely survived a Latvian comeback, that means we can update the 2010 Olympic Men's Hockey Bracket...
