and Team USA will play for the bronze medal at the 2016 IIHF World Championships.

The Americans will face off against Russia on Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. (broadcast via live stream at NBC Sports Live Extra), the consolation prize after dropping a 4-3 decision to Canada in the semifinals on Saturday afternoon.

Nelson had an assist on David Warofsky’s second period goal on Saturday, tying the game 2-2. Team USA scored three unanswered goals in a span of just over seven minutes in the second period to take a 3-2 lead, but Canada tied the score with 4:30 to play in the period. Deadlocked 3-3, Ryan Ellis scored the eventual winner for Canada 1:34 into the third period. Canada will play Finland for gold at 1:15 E.T. on Sunday.

With the assist, Nelson has three points (1G, 2A) in five games.
