Team Canada and Switzerland are all tied, 1-1, after one period in the quarterfinal round of the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championship.
Canada pulled into a 1-1 tie with 4:54 left in the first when Ryan Johansen
jammed home a power-play goal from the slot after taking a feed from Brayden Schenn
in the slot. It was the best the Canadians could do after missing a golden opportunity earlier in the game when they failed to convert on a two-man advantage for 46 seconds at the 3:39 mark.
Johansen almost gave his team a 2-1 lead less than two minutes later when he took a pass in the slot and directed a shot toward the right corner of the cage but Conz did the splits to get his left pad on the shot.
The Swiss opened a 1-0 lead 1:09 into the first on their first shot against Canadian starter Mark Visentin
. Inti Pestoni
, who opened the scoring in an eventual 2-1 loss against Team USA on Friday, threw a harmless-looking wraparound at the cage that deflected off the stick of Ryan Ellis
and past Visentin.
Canada outshot Switzerland, 23-8.
