The unimaginable occurred when Team Switzerland met Canada in men's hockey action today at the Winter Olympics in Turin, Italy. Coming off what was considered one of their biggest wins in their hockey history, a win over Czech Republic on Thursday, the Swiss knocked off mighty Canada this afternoon as well.

Former Montreal Canadiens forward Paul Dipietro scored both goals and Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Martin Gerber was flawless in the 2-0 victory.

Other results:

Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson had two goals as Sweden defeated Latvia by a 6-1 score. Philadelphia Flyers Peter Forsberg returned from a groin injury and had two assists.

Christoph Schubert and Germany played to a 3-3 draw with host Italy. The draw gives both teams their first point of the tournament. Italy scored with 1:32 remaining but Marcel Goc replied for Germany 15 seconds later.

Team Russia held on to edge Kazakhstan by a 1-0 score. Evgeni Nabokov, who was born in Kazakhstan but grew up in Russia, made 24 saves in his second straight shutout and Alexander Kharitonov scored midway through the second period in the win.

Former Senator Peter Bondra's third-period goal stood up as the game-winner as Slovakia doubled the United States 2-1.

Dallas Stars forward Jere Lehtinen scored two goals and an assist to lead Finland to a 4-2 win over the Czech Republic in the final game of the day.
