BRATISLAVA, Slovakia — Damon Severson had a funny feeling he'd score in Canada's quarterfinal against Switzerland at the world hockey championship. "(Thursday) morning, I woke up and I just thought 'I feel like I'm going to score tonight. I hope I can just get one,'" said the 24-year-old from Melville, Sask. "I didn't think it was going to be like that, but luckily enough, I was able to get the tying goal." The New Jersey Devils defenceman's blast from the point trickled through Swiss goaltender Leonardo Genoni with just 0.4 seconds left in the third period, pulling Canada into a 2-2 tie to force overtime.
