Not really, the point Slovakia won against Russia is meaningless. Even if Slovakia had lost against Russia 0-9, an OT/SO win against the US tomorrow would have been enough to advance.

But the good showing against Russia can be useful for boosting Slovakia's confidence ahead of tomorrow's game. Their performance against Canada was likewise promising.
