The United States and Canada now know who and when they will play in the quarterfinals of the men’s hockey tournament at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
The defending gold medalists will take on Latvia in their first Olympic matchup since 1936, which the Canadians won 11-0. Latvia upset Switzerland 3-1 in Tuesday’s qualification round meeting. The three goals the Swiss allowed were two more than they let through in the entire preliminary round.
Team USA will play the Czech Republic. The Czechs defeated Slovakia 5-3 in an exciting qualification round meeting Tuesday afternoon. Boston Bruins center David Krejci led the way with a goal and an assist.
