🇺🇸USA vs. 🇫🇮Finland: In another repeat of the controversial 2019 final, the reigning champ Americans are facing the Finnish squad for the second time this tournament. Team USA won 3–0 in the group stage, and they’re likely to repeat.

🇨🇦Canada vs. 🇨🇭Switzerland: This one should be an easy win for Canada, who not only beat Switzerland 5–0 in the preliminary round, but also have the tournament’s top three scorers on their roster.

  • Still, despite cruising through the quarters with a 7–0 win over Germany, stranger things have happened. Tune in at 7 p.m. ET today, and look out for our gold medal game preview in your inbox tomorrow.
