The World Championships have four games on tap today in Russia.

Group A Preliminary Games

9:15 AM ET: Switzerland vs Latvia

Latvia is tied with Kazakhstan at the bottom of Group A and need to pick up points in order to avoid relegation. Switzerland beat Denmark in overtime yesterday for their first win of the tournament, and may be hitting their stride at the right time and may even have an outside chance at the medal round. The game will be shown on TSN4 in Canada

1:15 PM ET: Kazakhstan vs Sweden

This game features one of the tournament's top scorers. No, not a Swede. Kazakhstan's Nigel Dawes. He is second in tournament scoring with five points in three games and is the only player not from Canada, Finland, Russia and the Czech Republic among the top scorers. Kazakhstan is coming off a tough loss to Norway which means they have work to do to stay up. Sweden is currently 3rd in Group A, and need to collect points to qualify for the medal round. The game will be shown on TSN 1 in Canada

Group B Preliminary Games

9:15 AM ET: Slovakia vs Belarus

Slovakia is coming off a very disappointing loss to Germany yesterday. They had a chance to separate themselves from the rest of the pack in Group B, but now are just a point ahead of France, and Germany and the United States are within one regulation win from them. This game against Belarus, who sits in the bottom of Group B is huge for them. They need to bank as many points as they can. Belarus has been outscored 20-5 in the tournament and will likely be battling with Hungary for relegation. The game will be shown on TSN1/3 in Canada

1:15 PM ET: Hungary vs Finland

Hungary fell 6-2 to France yesterday, and it does not get easier for them at all. For Hungary, anything they can do against Finland is a bonus. Much like they did against Canada, they are outmatched and this could get ugly if Hungary doesn't put out a full effort against a dangerous Finnish team, especially offensively. Finland is tied atop Group B with Canada and any lost opportunities against bottom teams will cost them a chance to win the group. The game will be shown on TSN3 in Canada

All games will be streamed here (subject to geo-blocking). TSN Go will be streaming all of the games as well in Canada.
