SOCHI, Russia (AP) -- Daniel Alfredsson scored off a rebound with 7:21 left and Henrik Lundqvist had a 26-save shutout, lifting short-handed Sweden to a 1-0 win over Switzerland on Friday at the Olympics.

The Swedes (2-0) moved into a favorable position to earn a spot in the quarterfinals as the only undefeated team in Group C. With a victory over winless Latvia on Saturday, they would be among the final eight in the 12-nation tournament.

The Swiss (1-1) may have to win in the qualification round to reach the quarterfinals even if they beat the Jaromir Jagr-led Czech Republic on Saturday.

Sweden announced before the game that captain Henrik Zetterberg will miss the rest of the tournament because of a herniated disk, taking a third key player off their roster.
