by canadiens.com @canadiensmtl / Canadiens

Team Canada qualified for the semi-finals at the World Cup of Hockey on Tuesday night with a 4-2 win over the United States.

Carey Price was solid once again between the pipes, turning aside 29 of the 31 shots he faced. When he gave up a goal to Ryan McDonagh at the start of the first period, he saw his shutout streak in international play snapped at 228:41, a streak that began back at the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

For his part, Max Pacioretty logged just 11:34 of ice time and amassed one shot on goal.

With the win, Team Canada secured its spot in the semis, while the Americans and the Czechs were officially eliminated. 

Head coach Mike Babcock confirmed that Price would get the night off when Canada battles Team Europe on Wednesday night. 

Meanwhile, Pacioretty and Tomas Plekanec will square off on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre.
