A little advice if you happen to be playing the Swiss mens Olympic hockey team: Dont let them score first. Yeezy 700 Outlet . When they do, they dont lose. Switzerland has now played three games at the Sochi Olympic Games and has won two of them by identical 1-0 scores. Their only defeat? A 1-0 loss to Sweden. Switzerland, coached by Canadian and former junior scoring star with the Ottawa 67s Sean Simpson, scored at 14:10 of the first period and then held on to shut out the Czech Republic. Each team had 26 shots on goal. Goaltender Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks recorded the shutout his second in as many games in the Olympics. Hiller preserved the victory when he stunned Tomas Plekanec of the Czech Republic on a hard slap shot from the bottom of the faceoff circle with a huge glove save. He doesnt mind being the star attraction, but believes it takes more than a hot goalie to win at the Olympics. "Youve got to rely on the whole team," Hiller said. "I think were playing very solidly defensively; we dont give them too much. W barely have any odd-man rushes or anything. That makes life easier as a goaltender and if you make a couple of key saves, sometimes scoring one goal is enough." Although the shots were even, the Czechs had more quality scoring chances and Hiller rarely had time to relax. "Those games are really fun to play," Hiller said. "We played really solid in our own end and everybody was sacrificing, blocking shots, diving for pucks, and that makes it easier as a goalie." Hiller ranks seventh in the NHL with 25 victories. He is 15th in goals-against average and 21th in save percentage at .917. Replica Yeezy .
