Switzerland (3) vs. Finland (2)
The fourth-place team from Group A, Team Switzerland, pulled off an upset with a 3-2 defeat of Finland, the winner of Group B, at Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning, Denmark on Wednesday.
The quarterfinal matchup of the 2018 IIHF World Championship featured a Colorado Avalanche skater on both sides with Mikko Rantanen representing Finland and Sven Andrighetto playing for his native Switzerland.
Rantanen assisted on the Finns' first-period tally, the only goal of the frame, which came off of the stick of Markus Nutivaara (Columbus Blue Jackets). However, the Swiss took the lead in the second stanza with three unanswered goals.
