    CBC has Canada ranked #2:

    Finland 5 5 0 0 10 19 2
    Canada 5 3 2 0 6 15 9
    Switzerland 5 2 1 2 6 10 12
    Czech Republic 5 2 3 0 4 14 12
    Italy 5 0 3 2 2 9 23
    Germany 5 0 3 2 2 7 16

    I'm assuming that's based on Wins as the tie-breaker. Not saying that's right, but I can't find the tie-breaker formula anywhere on the IIHF website.

    I believe the tie is broken first by wins, then by head to head play if the wins are equal:dunno:

    I saw CBC showing Canada as 3rd.

    First tie breaker is 'head-to-head'
    then goal differential. :teach:

    Its funny that the website says different then... it would make more sense to have the team with more wins ranked higher

    Found this...

    Tie breaking formula:

    If two teams are tied on equality of points in the standings, the following tie breaking criteria applies:

    1. Head-to-head (mutual) games between the teams concerned.
    2. Goal differential.
    3. Higher number of goals scored for.
    4. Game Winning Shots competition between the teams concerned.

    Yeah, head-to-head is much more logical in a one round round robin group.
