Team Canada has gone undefeated so far in this tournament, although it has to be said that France kept them honest during their last game, a 4-3 win for the Canadians. The tight game against the French came after a 6-4 win versus Sweden, a 6-3 victory over the Czechs, a 10-0 drubbing of Germany, and a 6-1 opening win against Latvia.

Switzerland has won only two of their six games, against Germany (1-0) and France (3-1.)  They dropped their opener versus Austria by a score of 4-3, as well as their most recent games against Sweden and Latvia, with an identical score (2-1.)

How to watch

Start Time: 2:15 pm EST
Broadcast: TSN1, TSN3, TSN4,

Team Canada is sporting one of their strongest rosters in the history of the World Championships. Not only did Sidney Crosby make the trip, but so did Taylor Hall, Jordan Eberle, and Matt Duchene, who lead the team in scoring through five games.

The offensive threats don't end there, seeing as Jason Spezza, Nathan MacKinnon, Tyler Seguin, and Claude Giroux are also featured among the forwards.

As for Switzerland, they'll have to depend on a low-scoring affair, since they simply do not have the offensive weapons to match Canada. They do however have a few NHL caliber players on the roster; Roman Josi, Mark Streit, Reto Berra, Damien Brunner, & Kevin Fiala.
