Today's games lack a bit in terms of highly anticipated match-ups, but does feature a good Finland-Switzerland match-up for top of the Helsinki Group. Kazakhstan and Belarus try and get their first win of the tournament in the opener, while Latvia and Italy try and start a win streak after strong wins their last time out. The action closes out with Germany trying to rebound from their loss to Latvia by taking on undefeated Russia.
Injury updates: Simon Moser of Switzerland (knee) is out for the tournament, as is Joel Lundqvist of Sweden (fractured orbital bone). The Swiss have replaced Moser with ZSC Lions forward Thibaut Monnet.
