Ah, but its a good myth. Wasn't that goalie a carpenter who "saves"?!

With Nyffeler in net I just don't see the Swiss winning a SO against the Russians, and the much more athletic Vasilevski. Nyffeler biggest weakness seems to be side to side movement, the absolute worst thing to struggle with in an SO. Swiss are 0-2 in SO already in the tourney...
