Canada sticking with same lineup vs. U.S.

Here is the lineup Canada will skate with against the United States in their semifinal matchup (4 a.m. ET, NHLN-US, TSN). It's a lineup that looks identical to the one used in the team's preliminary-round finale against Russia:

Jonathan Drouin - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Mark Scheifele

Jonathan Huberdeau - Ryan Strome - Ty Rattie

Philip Danault - Boone Jenner - Brett Ritchie

Anthony Camara - Mark McNeill - Nathan MacKinnon

JC Lipon

Scott Harrington - Dougie Hamilton

Xavier Ouellet - Griffin Reinhart

Morgan Rielly - Tyler Wotherspoon

Ryan Murphy

Malcolm Subban will start in goal, with Jordan Binnington serving as the backup.

Quote of the Day

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
