The Islanders Olympians met in Sochi, where they shot and shot but could not produce a goal.

After getting run over by Finland 8-4 in the opener, Austria faced tournament favorites Canada on Friday. It, I mean, it went like you expected. Current New York Islanders Michael Grabner hit the post and Thomas Vanek created a chance or two, but the Canadians had their way with the Austrian defense and goaltending like it was U.S. vs. Slovakia.

None of the three Islanders had points -- John Tavares again had a few nice plays from the four-person fourth line.

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers traded defenseman Mike Dalhuisen to San Antonio for right wing Mike Brace. Both have been ECHL guys thus far though -- with injuries and assignments, Dalhuisen has only played four games with Bridgeport -- so this would be a minor-minor deal.

The Swiss pressed Switzerland early but could not beat Henrik Lundqvist on 26 shots and were ultimately shutout, 1-0.

Did Switzerland goof by playing Reto Berra instead of Jonas Hiller? "Berra played admirably in a 1-0 defeat, but let’s face it: the winning goal was weak. Berra allowed a big, fat rebound on a soft Erik Karlsson shot and Daniel Alfredsson batted it home." Well, either way the Swiss didn't score. Which is weird, because Nino...

The Czechs doubled up Latvia, 4-2, and Finland trounced poor Norway, 6-1.
