Brunner, Jagr fuel victories at worlds

It was a double victory day for the Devils at the IIHF World Championship on Wednesday.

Damien Brunner scored on the power play and assisted on the winning goal for Switzerland, which beat Germany, 3-2, for its first win in four tries in Minsk.

At Chizhovka Arena, Jaromir Jagr notched the insurance goal with 4:26 left in regulation as the Czech Republic blanked Italy, 2-0.

Brunner’s tally opened the scoring for Switzerland at 12:17 of the first period. In the second, his setup for Kevin Romy at 16:27 produced a 3-1 lead and the eventual game winner.

Brunner has four points in four games (2g-2a) for the Swiss, who face Finland in Group B play on Friday.

Jagr has three points in four games (2g-1a) for the Czech Republic, which outshot the Italians, 37-11. The Czechs are off until Saturday, when they take on Denmark in Group A action. 

The Czechs' first regulation win snapped a two-game skid. After topping Slovakia in overtime to start the tournament, they suffered losses to undefeated Sweden, in a shootout, and Canada.

Jagr now has 27 goals and 61 points in 64 career games at the world championship. Brunner's career totals improved to 16 points (6g-10a) in 18 games.

Thursday’s schedule includes Peter DeBoer and Canada against Denmark and Albany (AHL) defenseman Raman Hrabarenka and host Belarus versus Finland.
