Shockingly there is no Leafs game today. How did they get a day off? They play again tomorrow, and you'll never guess who it's against.

The women are off today as well before the quarterfinals tomorrow. The matchups are:

  • USA vs Japan
  • Canada vs Sweden
  • Czechia vs Germany
  • Finland vs Switzerland

All games are played on Thursday, so they start early at 10 in the morning, and they have 3.5 hours set aside for each game. What could possibly go wrong?

Of note:

Brian has an update on the prospect playoff pictures later, so I'll leave that topic alone.
