SUI v GBR

Great Britain put in a battling performance in a 3-0 defeat by the world’s seventh seeds Switzerland at the World Championship in Prague.

Sean Norris replaced Cam Critchlow to make his first World Championship appearance, while Sam Ruopp came back into the line-up for Sam Jones. Jackson Whistle started between the pipes with Ben Bowns as back-up.

Whistle made a superb save to stop Kevin Fiala’s penalty-shot, but the Swiss went ahead when Nico Hischier buried a rebound (3:48).

Liam Kirk cut inside from the right but saw his shot saved, before Ben Lake tipped Mark Richardson’s shot inches wide.

Switzerland made it 2-0 through Dean Kukan’s shot from the top of the right-circle (13:36).

Whistle came up big to stop Romain Loeffel’s bullet of a shot from the slot, but the Swiss scored their third on the powerplay through Nino Niederreiter from the right-circle (38:36).

Brett Perlini sped into the offensive zone and shot just over as GB made a positive start to the third period.

Cade Neilson and Kirk also went close but GB were unable to beat Akira Schmid who secured a 15-shot shutout.
