Team USA Advances To The Semifinal Round Of The World Championship

HERNING, Denmark - Patrick Kane (Buffalo, N.Y.) scored twice and Keith Kinkaid (Farmingville, N.Y.) made 24 saves to lead the 2018 U.S. Men's National Team past the Czech Republic, 3-2, in its quarterfinal game of the 2018 International Ice Hockey Federation Men's World Championship

“That was a great hockey game that could’ve gone either way and we’re thrilled to be moving on,” said Jeff Blashill, head coach of the 2018 U.S. Men’s National Team. “I liked our composure tonight and thought we had a number of guys rise to the occasions. We’ll enjoy this tonight before traveling to Copenhagen tomorrow and turning our attention to what we expect will be a hard-fought semifinal game.” 

The United States (5-2-0-1/W-OTW-OTL-L) will meet the winner of the Sweden-Latvia quarterfinal in the semifinal round on Saturday (May 19) at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen. The game, which will either take place at 3:15 p.m. local time (9:15 a.m. ET) or 7:15 p.m. local time (1:15 p.m.), will be televised live on NHL Network.
