The tournament's second day is a little calmer as only two games are scheduled, including the first game for last year's tournament surprises Denmark and Slovakia.
Group A Preliminary Game
1 PM ET: Denmark vs Switzerland
Last year's tournament darlings, Denmark, make their tournament debut and after losing two pre-tournament games 5-0, they are facing probably their most important game. A loss for Denmark here would all but guarantee the relegation round unless they can get a result against Canada, USA or Sweden. Switzerland is coming off of a 8-3 loss against Sweden and will possibly be missing at least one player to suspension. The game will be shown on TSN 1/3/4 and RDS2 in Canada, NHL Network in the United States.
Group B Preliminary Game
Slovakia makes their tournament debut and will need to find new heroes without Martin Reway and Denis Godla who led them to a bronze medal last year. Belarus is coming off of a tough loss to hosts Finland and will look to rebound in back-to-back games. If they can get similar goaltending, they might be able to surprise. The game will be on TSN 1/3/4 and RDS2 in Canada, NHL Network in the US.
