Team Slovakia to play Canada in quarters

Team Slovakia beat Austria 6-3 on Friday May 3 for its third win in four games, but can still finish no higher in its group than third; even if it beats Russia tonight, to tie Sweden and Finland atop F-Group with eight points, the team will still lose out on goal differential.

That means that Slovakia will play Canada, the second-place finisher in E-Group, in the quarterfinals later this week. Canada was stomped 5-1 by the Czechs last night, and has few of the players that took the national squad to the Olympic gold in Salt Lake City.

The Slovak team now has 11 NHLers out of 23 skaters, with the arrival of forwards Žigmund Pálffy from Los Angeles and Jozef Štumpel from Boston.
