One day after Canada struggled with Switzerland, only able to defeat them 3-2 in a shootout, the US completely smoked the Swiss like they were gouda. Colin White had this goal plus two assists as the Americans romped to a 10-1 victory, clinching their spot in the playoff rounds. Switzerland's loss eliminated them from contention, so we know that Sweden, the US, Canada and Denmark will be, in some order, the four teams to advance out of group A.
Tomorrow, the US plays Denmark at 9 AM and Canada plays Sweden at 1 PM in the final two group games. Sweden has clinched first place in the group but the US can lock down second place with a win. With a regulation loss, the US could theoretically fall all the way down to fourth. The teams' point totals are Sweden 9, the US 6, Canada 5 and Denmark 3.
