Brunner scores in Swiss loss to U.S.

Damien Brunner notched his first goal of the 2014 IIHF World Championship in Switzerland’s 3-2 loss to the United States on Saturday.

Brunner’s tally at 9:39 of the second period had the Swiss ahead, 2-1, after 40 minutes. Nashville’s Craig Smith answered for the U.S. 1:28 into the third, tying the contest at 2. The go-ahead goal from Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson came with 6:45 left in regulation and put Team USA on top for good.

Brunner recorded four shots in 19:10 of ice time. He has five goals and eight assists for 13 points in 16 world championship appearances.

Switzerland, which was blanked by Russia on Friday, fell to 0-2 in Group B. Brunner and the Swiss are back in action Monday against host Belarus, which was bolstered Friday by the addition of Albany (AHL) defenseman Raman Hrabarenka.

Peter DeBoer, an assistant coach with Canada (Group A), saw his squad rebound from Friday’s shootout loss to France with a 4-1 win over Slovakia on Saturday.

Jaromir Jagr and the Czech Republic (Group A) are back in action Sunday against Sweden at 1:45 p.m. ET. The Czechs opened with an overtime win over Slovakia on Friday. Jagr scored with 2:07 left in regulation to force the extra session.

Hrabarenka and Belarus (Group B) take on Kazakhstan Sunday at 10:30 a.m. ET.
