'The Czechs got more bad news: forward Patrik Elias also is out for the rest of the games with bruised ribs sustained in a 3-2 upset loss Thursday to Switzerland. Elias was a late replacement for New York Rangers rookie Petr Prucha, who pulled out because of a knee injury. Elias is expected to be replaced by Ales Kotalik, who has 21 goals and 23 assists for a team-high 44 points in 56 games with the Buffalo Sabres.'
