It was a pretty solid round robin stage for the US world junior team, all things considered. They beat Canada, had a pair of easy wins over teams they should beat, and poured 40+ shots on in a tough 1-0 loss to Sweden. The Americans now have a chance to play for a medal if they can beat the Czech Republic in today's quarterfinal.

United States (3-1-0, 2nd place in Group A)


Czech Republic (2-1-1, 3rd place in Group B)

Game Time:
1 PM Eastern Time (8 PM Helsinki Time)
TV Information: The game will be broadcast live on NHL Network. Steve Mears, Dave Starman and Jill Savage will be on the call.
