Team Canada dropped its second game of the Winter Olympics today, this time 2-0 to Finland. With eight points, Finland has clinched first in pool A. Canada, who have been shutout in consective games now, lost to Switzerland 2-0 on Saturday. Speaking of the Swiss, they will look to clinch second place in Pool A as they meet host Italy on Tuesday.

Germany and Switzerland played to a 2-2 draw today. Marcel Goc scored for Germany halfway through the third period to knot the score. After the Swiss won a pair of upset games over the Czech Republic and Canada, the Germans will be pleased with the result.

The Czechs had a hatrick performance from former Senator Vaclav Prospal as they defeated the Italians 4-1. Canada (four points) will now need a win over the Czech Republic (six points) on Tuesday to leap-frog them for third place in Pool A. The first tie-breaker in the standings is head-to-head results.

In Pool B action, Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson scored a goal and an assist as Sweden defeated the United States 2-1. Alfredsson's fourth goal of the tournament opened the scoring seven minutes into the game. He also assisted Mikael Samuelsson's game-winning goal four minutes into the third period.

Ilya Kovalchuk, of the Atlanta Thrashers, busted out with four goals as Team Russia defeated Latvia 9-2. Former Senator Alexei Yashin also had a goal and two assists for Russia.

Slovakia remained atop Pool B with eight points after a 2-1 win over Kazakhstan. Former Senators Peter Bondra and Marian Hossa scored in the victory.
