Swiss team captain Mark Streit scored two goal and added an assist, while goaltender Reto Berra made 19 saves in Switzerland's 5-1 win over Kazakhstan Saturday in Helsinki.

"There are no easy games in this tournament, all teams can play. Fortunately, we got an early lead," Streit said.

"We knew we couldn't have any turnovers in the neutral zone. We wanted to get the puck deep into their zone, cycle it there, and get them tired. That's what we did, they took a couple of penalties, and we took advantage of that," he added.
