Latvia, Belarus, Germany, and Norway Eliminated

Not really any surprises yesterday with the Swiss, Canada, Czech Republic, and Slovakia moving on to today's quarterfinals.

Ovi's hit on Jagr was obviously a bigger blow than Jagr had everyone believe as the big news from last night was his leaving in the first minutes of the game against the Czech Republic due to a sore neck. Jagr didn't return and his team barely made it past elimination without him. The team doctor said the injury resulted from Ovechkin's hit he sustained during the Sunday night game against the Russians.
"We hope he'll be available to play tomorrow," Czech coach Vladimir Ruzicka said after his team's great escape at the University of British Columbia's Thunderbird Arena. "We believe he will be ready. And obviously, we're hoping he can play the whole game."
Here are the results:
  • Switzerland - 3, Belarus - 2 (RECAP)
  • Canada - 8, Germany - 2 (RECAP)
  • Czech Republic - 3, Latvia - 2 (RECAP)
  • Slovakia - 4, Norway - 3 (RECAP)
