Hiller has hard time with Norway in win.

Ducks goalie Jonas Hiller had more trouble holding off the Norwegians on Saturday than he did the Canadians on Thursday.

Only this time, Hiller came out on the winning end of the overtime result, stopping 19 shots as Switzerland beat Norway 5-4. Romano Lemm scored 2:28 into the extra period to clinch third place in Group A for Switzerland, and eliminate Norway from the medal round.

With his team leading 4-3 at 12:18 of the third period, Hiller allowed the third goal of the game by Norway’s Tore Vikingstad. Writes the Associated Press:

(Patrick) Thoresen stole the puck from Hiller of the Anaheim Ducks, who played it outside what would be the trapezoid area in the NHL, and couldn’t get back in time to stop Vikingstad’s shot off Thoresen’s feed. Hats littered the ice, including one with Viking horns.
