"Guys are playing great in our own end and competing in front of the net when there are rebounds," Quick said.

The U.S. will play either the Czech Republic or Slovakia.

The Canadians are going with Carey Price -- not Roberto Luongo -- when they're among the final eight teams in the 12-team tournament.

"I'm excited," Price said. "I'm grateful for the opportunity."

The defending Olympic champions will face either Switzerland or Latvia.

Quick started two games in the preliminary round, including the 3-2 shootout win over the host Russians. Price was also in net for two of Canada's first three games.

Luongo helped Canada beat Miller and the U.S. at the Vancouver Games in overtime.
