HELSINKI - The way it had been going, with an upset a day in the Helsinki pool at the world championship, it looked like it could be Canada-France in the quarterfinal.
And then, for a while, Canada-Finland.
But when the final day of the round-robin ended, it wound up being a Canada-Slovakia matchup in the quarters Thursday, with the U.S. facing Finland in the other playoff round game here. Russia-Norway and Sweden-Czech Republic will be the quarterfinal games in Stockholm.
With a win over Slovakia, Canada would play the winner of the Czech-Sweden game in the semifinals.
