There will be several key matchups on deck, including a 2018 gold medal game rematch between the United States and Canada.

Also on the docket is a showdown between Japan and the Czech Republic, with the winner taking down the top spot in Group B of the competition.

The day will wrap up with a matchup between Sweden and Denmark, with the winner moving on to the quarterfinals of the tournament.

Here is the schedule for the final day of preliminary round play in the women’s hockey tournament.

USA vs. Canada – Group A

The winner of the game will capture the top spot in Group A, firmly establishing themselves on the road to the gold medal game. The loser of the game will take on the second-place team in Group B, setting up a potentially tough matchup that will likely pit them against either Japan or the Czech Republic.

Sweden vs. Denmark – Group B

Puck Drop: 7:10 a.m. Tuesday

What’s at Stake:

Sweden and Denmark are playing to advance to the elimination round, as a regulation win for either team would vault them over China in the Group B standings.

Only the top three teams in Group B advance to the quarterfinals. Denmark actually has a chance to jump all the way into second place in Group B with a regulation win, so long as it’s coupled with a regulation loss by the Czech Republic.
