2012 IIHF World Championship
Switzerland Comes Up Short Against France

FRANCE 4, SWITZERLAND 2

France pulled the biggest upset of the tournament Saturday, beating Switzerland for the first time in 12 years, 4-2.

Teddy and Stéphane da Costa scored a goal each for France, Cristobal Huet made 41 saves.

Switzerland outshot France 43-27, but Huet was as good as the French needed him to be, and France scored two powerplay goals in the third period when Goran Bezina received a five-minute major for checking to the head.

Swiss Captain Mark Streit leads his club's defensemen in scoring with four points (two goals, two assists) in five games.

The Swiss return to action Sunday at 1:15 p.m. EST against Slovakia.
