Welcome to the first edition of Olympic Puck Dumps! I may have overestimated Slovakia.
The Top Line
Through the Olympics, the scoreboard will feature games from the previous day on Sochi's calendar.
Switzerland 1, Latvia 0 – This one came right down to the wire, but Latvia finally cracked and now likely won't get points.
Sweden 4, Czech Republic 2 – This one looked like a massacre early with Sweden jumping ahead 4-0, but the Czechs made a late game of it.
