Nino! Nino! Nino!

Nino Niederreiter scored twice and set up another to lead Switzerland to a 4-1 win over Slovakia this afternoon to propel the Swiss into the Medal Round and ensuring that the Swiss will remain in the big dance next season in Buffalo.

Niederreiter scored in the second and then got the game-winner early in the third before assisting on the insurance marker later in the final frame.

He now has 3 goals and 3 assists for six points in his last two games and he has been a part of six of the 11 goals the Swiss have scored in the tournament.

Switzerland will play in the quarter-final round on Saturday against the #2 seed from the “B” pool, which could be any of the Russia/Finland/Czech teams.  That game will be seen on the NHL Network at 5:00 PST.

Congrats Nino!
