It's a battle of the S's on day three of the IIHF 2017 World Junior Championship, with Switzerland, Sweden, Slovakia and the US of A all in action.

While Sweden last played in a 6-1 Monday trouncing of Denmark, Switzerland is coming off a 4-3 overtime win vs. Michael Spacek's Czech Republic on Tuesday, one in which the Swiss were outshot 39-22. Despite the best efforts of Czech skaters Spacek, Jakub Zboril and Filip Chlapik, it was Swiss forward Nico Hischier who stole the show.

Like Sweden, Team USA also last played in a 6-1 victory on Monday. The score takes away from how the Americans allowed Latvia to hang around for longer than expected, but a win's a win and the US enters tonight's match against Slovakia with a few hot hands. Forwards Clayton Keller, Troy Terry, Tage Thompson and Colin White all had two point nights, though Winnipeg Jets prospects Erik Foley and Jack Roslovic failed to get in on the action.

You may remember Slovakia from their 5-0 loss to Canada yesterday. And on that note, happy hockey!
