Hockey World Championship: USA to face Czech Republic in quarterfinals

The quarter-final between the USA and the Czech Republic will be shown on RDS and at 9am.

After a near-flawless group stage, the U.S. team enters the elimination section of the world championships, fresh off a crushing loss to the Czech Republic in last year’s bronze medal match in Finland.

In a match eventually won by the hosts, Czechia secured the third step of the podium with a crushing 8-4 defeat of the USA.

This year the Americans’ forward DJ Tynan was on the ice during the rout.

In 2023, in the same ring as last year, the US wants more than fourth place. With the best record in the group stage, 7 wins in as many games, a blue-white-red steamroller awaits Czechia with a +26 goal difference.

The Americans have found the strings more often than any other team this year, scoring 34 goals.

On the other hand, Dominik Kubalik leads Tynen in tournament points with 12 points. With 8 goals in 7 games, Cutter is ahead of Gauthier among the top scorers.

The Canadian’s mandate of trust for blue line Lane Hudson is evident here. With a difference of 5 points and +6 since the start of the tournament, Hudson is showing great things for fans waiting for Bell to take center stage in the coming seasons, and the young defender is not done talking about people. him.

The Czech Republic have a tall order if they want to prevent them from becoming too dominant from the start of the tournament. If the past is a guarantee of the future, America may return to the fold empty-handed.
