According to the Sochi 2014 website, Reto Berra of the Calgary Flames made 30 saves on Friday in a 1-0 Switzerland loss to Sweden in Group C hockey action at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Berra got a surprise start for Switzerland as it was expected that Jonas Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks would get the start. However according to CBC Sports, one of the reasons why Berra got the start for Switzerland instead of Hiller was because off his excellent play at the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship in Stockholm. In four games last year Berra went 4-0 with a 1.00 goals against average as Switzerland shocked the hockey world in winning the silver medal.

Switzerland has been involved in the two most lowest scoring games in the Olympic men's hockey tournament so far. On Wednesday, Hiller made 21 saves in a 1-0 Switzerland win over Latvia.

Switzerland will finish their group C hockey action Saturday morning against the Czech Republic (TSN, 10:00 a.m., mountain time).
