The U.S. – Russia clash is over, but that doesn’t mean that men’s hockey is wrapping things up for Saturday. These two games lift off at noon ET:

Sweden vs. Latvia: 12 p.m. ET – CLICK HERE TO WATCH LIVE
Group C’s games wrap up with this duo of contests, with the Czech Republic’s game against Switzerland being the most meaningful as they jockey for position. The winner of that contest has a shot at locking up an automatic quarterfinal spot. Switzerland has been stifling defensively while the Czechs seem like they might need to out-score their problems, so this could be a matter of contrasting styles.
The stakes are lower in Sweden – Latvia, as the Swedes already locked up a spot in the quarterfinals. This is mainly a tune-up for Sweden.
