Jets at the 2012 IIHF World Championships
MAY 15, 2012: USA 5, SWITZERLAND 2
In a game that would set the match-up for the quarter-final round of the IIHF World Championships, the Americans made it count. A pair of goals in the second and three in the third, all from different players surged the USA up and over team Switzerland, 5-2 Tuesday afternoon. Paul Stastny led his team with a goal and two assists. USA goaltender Jimmy Howard stopped 25 of 27 shots on goal to earn the win.

The victory over the Swiss gives the Americans a 4-2-0-1 record in the round robin, good for second place in Group A. They will face Finland in the quarter-final round on Thursday night.

Jim Slater didn't hit the scoresheet but went 75% again in the face-off circle (9-3) and played 13:18 minutes of ice time. Slater has two goals and one assist and six penalty minutes through the seven games played in the round-robin portion of the tournament.
