Jagr, who turned 42 on Saturday, collected two goals in three games to match Zidlicky for the team lead and now has 22 points (9g-13a) in 26 Olympic appearances. His eight shots represented the second highest total for the Czechs.

Elias, not in the lineup Saturday, posted one assist in two games, improving his career Olympic totals to seven points (3g-4a) in 12 contests. He contributed three shots and was +2.

The Swiss played three 1-0 games, winning two to go 2-1 and finish sixth.

Brunner, making his Olympic debut, recorded a game-high five shots in Switzerland's opening victory over Latvia, but did not register a point in the round.
