The United States will scratch center Derek Stepan, defenseman Justin Faulk and goaltender Jimmy Howard for its Group A game against Russia on Saturday.

The same three players were scratched Thursday when the United States beat Slovakia 7-1 in its first game of the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Coach Dan Bylsma opted to use the same lineup and to go with goaltender Jonathan Quick for the second straight game.
