    My prediction: 4-2 Switzerland

    Very interesting game. The Austrians have played very well so far, but IMO Switzerland is the superior team and should win this one.

    this will be a very close matchup and I would place Switzerland slightly above Austria in ranking.

    But Austria played well so far, above expectations.

    Moreover being a patriot and all I will say 3-2 Austria. :)

    I agree, a very close game.

    I'd predict a 4:2 for Switzerland (last goal an emtpy-netter). :yo:

    I'm not going to predict a score, but anything but a close game would surprise me..

    Go Welser

    Austria will put on another great effort and Vanek gets 2.

    3-2 Austria.

    While he might not score them himself, I predict that Rüthemann will be involved in at lest half of the Swiss goals. This guy has been on fire for almost the whole season, and especially in the playoffs.

    I might actually watch this game with more interest than in previous years, unless I'm going to play soccer. I'm betting (literally) on a tie, maybe 3-3.

    6 minutes into the game and I think Austria has started best, granted they have had time on the powerplay. Nothing spectacular to report yet,

    That ice looks really bad, players just keep falling into it.

    First period over. Not very entertaining IMO.
    Austria started best, but Switzerland came back pretty strong.
    Very few quality scoring chances, hoping for a better second period.

    Nice save from Divis on a breakaway by Wichser!

    1st period is over, kinda boring game. :(

    Big save in the final minute by Divis.

    The game is very hard, especially the swiss players have layed down some hard checks. The referees let it run mostly though so Im not sure much will change over the course of the game. An early goal would have helped...

    Few chances, both know this game is important.

    .. and they missed that, well another big chance 5:3 PP for Switzerland.

    Divis has been solid.

    Edit. another Austrian to the box 5:4 PP for Switzerland.
