At 11:00 am CST the #2 seeded USA will play #7 seeded Czech Republic, for place in the semifinals to likely face Canada. The undefeated US squad will need to avoid looking past the Czech Republic and focus at the task at hand on Wednesday.
The US team brings a red hot offense, 15 goals in 3 games, and a dominant goaltender in Jonathan Quick. The Czechs have a little momentum going, but lack dominance in any one area. Expect the US to roll through the Czech Republic without too much difficulty. They are no pushover, but the Czechs are certainly overmatched in this one.
Because of the obvious time zone delta between the US and Russia, not all games will be broadcast live but in most cases, live options will be available. Hockey games will air on NBC, MSNBC, USA, and NBCSN.
