Hiller the talk of Vancouver.

Jonas Hiller did not have to be the winning goaltender on Thursday to become the talk of Vancouver.

In what he told reporters was the “one of the best games I’ve ever seen for the Swiss national team,” Switzerland pushed Canada to a shootout before losing, 3-2. Hiller stopped 45 of 47 in regulation and allowed the only goal in the shootout, to Sidney Crosby, after stopping Crosby, Jonathan Toews and teammate Ryan Getzlaf in the first three rounds.

San Jose Sharks teammates Dany Heatley and Patrick Marleau scored for Canada in regulation.

Some good morning reads on Hiller:
