Exclusive Olympic Images, Day 7

February 19, 2010

Canada plucked victory from defeat today in an unexpectedly close contest against Switzerland in men's preliminary hockey. Sidney Crosby emerged as saviour with a final shot that tipped the score to 3-2. All eyes turn to the Canada-US game on Sunday afternoon; if Canada loses that, the road to quarter-finals gets steeper.
