There will be a second round of games – at least – for the United States at the 2009 IIHF World Championship.

With a 6-1 triumph over Austria on Monday at the PostFinance Arena in Bern, the Americans assured themselves of a spot in the tournament’s qualifying round. The top three teams in each of four groups advance to the second phase of the competition.

Whether the U.S. (2-0-0) finishes on top of Group C will be determined on Wednesday, when it faces Sweden in the final game of the preliminary round for both teams.

Ottawa Senators forward Nick Foligno earned his first world championship point during the victory over Austria – an assist on a second-period goal by Drew Stafford of the Buffalo Sabres, which proved to be the eventual game-winner.

Foligno’s feed across the crease set up Stafford for an easy tap-in.

Ryan Shannon of the Senators is also part of the American roster.

Team Canada closes out first-round play on Tuesday when it faces Slovakia at the Arena Zurich-Kloten (2:15 p.m., TSN). The Canadian lineup includes Dany Heatley, Jason Spezza, Mike Fisher and Chris Phillips of the Senators.

In a Group D game that matched up a pair of Senators teammates, Jarkko Ruutu and Finland rolled past Peter Regin and Denmark 5-1. The Finns, at 2-0, advance to the qualification round, while Denmark needs a win over Norway on Wednesday to avoid dropping into the classification series.
