With today's results in, we can start planning the playoffs, which begin on Wednesday and continue Thursday at Orange Arena in Bratislava, Slovakia.  The semifinals run Friday, while the medal games will go on Sunday.

Here is the schedule for the games:

  • Quarterfinal 1:  (1) Czech Republic Cz_medium vs. (8) United States of America Us_medium ; Wednesday, May 11 at 4:15 PM local, 10:15 AM EST.
  • Quarterfinal 2:  (3) Sweden Se_medium vs. (6) Germany De_medium ; Wednesday, May 11 at 8:15 PM local, 2:15 PM EST.
  • Quarterfinal 3:  (4) Finland Fi_medium vs. (5) Norway No_medium ; Thursday, May 12 at 4:15 PM local, 2:15 PM EST.
  • Quarterfinal 4:  (2) Canada Ca_medium vs. (7) Russia Ru_medium ; Thursday, May 12 at 8:15 PM local, 2:15 PM EST.
The winners of the first two quarterfinals play each other on Friday at 4:15 PM local, while the winners of QF 3 and 4 play the Friday evening game at 8:15 PM.  Overtime in the quarterfinals, semifinals and bronze medal game will be 10 minutes of 4 on 4 hockey (up from 5 minutes in the round robin) followed by a shootout.  The gold medal game gets a full 20 minutes of 4 on 4  OT before a shootout comes into play.

For the teams that get eliminated in the quarterfinals, their final standing will be based on their seeding after the qualification round, as I have provided above.  

As for the rest of the nations, their tournament is now complete.  Here are the final standings for those that did not make the playoffs:
