All five Flames were in action on Monday as group play wrapped up at the 2019 IIHF World Championship.

 

CZECH REPUBLIC 5, SWITZERLAND 4

Michael Frolik had a goal and an assist to help Czech Republic defeat Switzerland 5-4.

Frolik, who added two shots, had 16:50 in ice time and was a +2, now has 14 points (7G, 7A) in only seven games.

The Swiss pulled their goalie late in a 4-4 game to try and earn a regulation win and climb their way up the Group B standings, but Czech defenceman Jan Rutta scored into the empty net with 1:27 to play.

With the win, the Czechs finish the preliminary round with a 6-1 record - second only to Russia in Group B - and will play Germany in Thursday's quarter-final.

The Swiss, meanwhile, have a date with Canada.

Elias Lindholm was held off the score sheet in a 7-4 loss to Russia.
