    This is a good Swiss team but I am still saying Russia here, too many game breakers.

    Russia vs Swiss 6:2. SUI exhausted to much energy vs SWE and the games before. Russia has no sense of humor in this WHC.

    Schweiz will be somewhat exhausted and Russia is just to skilled. I say 1-4.

    No way this awesome Swiss team loses 2 in a row... calling the huge upset and Swiss win 3-2. Not because I think Russia is worse but because this Swiss team is of a 'Top 5'calibre and I can't see them losing 2 in a row.

    Yeah I think that the game yesterday will be in the legs of the swiss.

    5 - 2 Russia

    Will be a very interesting game once again. Both teams played yesterday but I believe both ale in such physical condition that it will not affect the game too much. I expect not so crazy pace like in the SWE - SUI game, this one will be more about Russian puck possession vs. Swiss counterattacks.

    I feel like Switzerland went kinda all-in to beat Sweden, so no luck tonight. Might get their "upset" against Czechia on Tuesday instead. They'll be a handful for all the playoff teams in the other group.

    2-1 Switzerland. They are hot right now and I don't think the Russians have an answer to Josi's ship steering skills.

    I’m sure they dont have fuel left in tank, they will try but after they allow goal or two, they will concentrate on match against us, where their odds are better anyway.

    Sweden vs Swiss was an amazing game, Lundqvist looked like he was in his prime... the Swiss are no joke, should be a good competitive game

    New offensive lines for Switzerland

    Fiala - Hischier - Moser
    Ambühl - Kurashev - Andrighetto
    Hofmann or Rod - Haas - Martschini
    Praplan - Bertschy - Scherwey

    Genoni in the net.
