It will be Team USA and Canada in the men's hockey semifinals, in a rematch of the gold medal game in Vancouver four years ago. Dustin Brown banged in a go-ahead goal late in the first period and the United States went on to dominate the Czech Republic 5-2, earning a spot in the Olympic hockey semifinals for the second straight time.

James van Riemsdyk gave the Americans a lead 1:39 into the game. Jonathan Quick stopped 21 shots to earn his third win of the tournament.

Canada advanced with a 2-1 win over Latvia.  Shea Weber scored a tiebreaking power-play goal with 6:54 to play while Carey Price made 15 saves for the defending Olympic champion Canadians.

Earlier in the day, Russia was eliminated after a 3-1 loss to Finland.  Finland will take on top-seed Sweden in the other semifinal. Sweden blanked Slovakia 5-0.
