Unbeaten and second-seeded Team USA will resume play in Wednesday's quarterfinals by taking on the Czech Republic, which dispatched Slovakia, 5-3, in qualification play on Tuesday.

The last time these countries met in the Olympics was the 1998 Nagano Games. The Czechs won, 4-1, behind 38 saves from Dominik Hasek and went on to win gold.

The only player left from either of those teams who will participate in this game is Jaromir Jagr, who had a goal and an assist in the game 16 years ago.

Will things turn out differently for the Americans this time around? Can the Czechs go on another run to gold?

This preview and prediction will give you TV info, potential line combinations and a prediction on what should be a competitive quarterfinal matchup.
