I didn't do bad in the quarter finals; got three out of four.

If I get one out of two in the semifinals, I'll be happy. I usually stink at predictions.

Russians could face disqualification of silver medal by IIHF for lack of respect to Canada.

Should this happen, the United States will move up to silver status and fourth-place Czech Republic will move into the bronze medal.
