The 16 teams are divided into two groups for the Preliminary Round.
The top-four ranked teams of each group advance to the quarter-finals that will be played cross-over. The first-place team in each preliminary-round group plays the fourth-place team of the other group, while the second-place team plays the third-place team of the other group. 1A-4B, 2A-3B, 1B-4A, 2B-3A. The winning teams advance to the semi-finals.

Semi-final pairings: Winner 1A-4B vs Winner 2B-3A, Winner 1B-4A vs Winner 2A-3B. Both semi-final games and the medal games will be played in Prague.

The winning teams of the semi-final games advance to the gold medal game while the semi-final losing teams play for bronze.

Several NHL players will be in the tournament for their respective home countries including Sidney Crosby for Team Canada once again.

Not that I know of. Most likely wasn't cleared because he played injured during the playoffs. Trying to find out if any other guys are going.

Don't be shocked if he's still playing at 50.

Canadians kicked ass today against Latvia 6-1. Good times.

I don't think the Czechs played today; haven't heard any coverage anyway.
