Today’s game is a quarterfinal between Switzerland and Canada. The Swiss finished 3rd in Pool A (2W, 2L), while Canada finished 2nd in Pool B (3W, 1OTL). Canada pounded the Swiss in the pre-competition round by 8-0. I suspect this will be a lot closer of a game. But I do think the Canadians will still dominate this one. Switzerland’s wins came against Germany and Slovakia, which aren’t exactly powerhouse teams, however they gave the USA a run for their money in a 2-1 loss on December 31, 2010.

Prediction: 6-2 Canada

PRE-GAME RANT

Well, fresh off a big win over Germany (8-2), Canada now heads into another huge game. The Americans definitely were a huge test (which unfortunately Canada failed), however you have to wonder if the Russians are going to be an even tougher team to play against. It’ll be interesting to see how the Canadians handle what is possibly the scariest top line at the Olympics (with possible exception to the newly formed Staal, Crosby, Iginla line). This should be a high flying, exciting game, and I’m hoping Roberto Luongo will be up to the task. This will also be another step in the always-exciting Crosby vs. Ovechkin series.

Prediction: 5-4 Canada
