Friday's semifinal contest between Canada and the United States will see a rematch between the two teams that fought for the gold medal four years ago in Vancouver. There, Sidney Crosby was able to score the dramatic overtime winner to propel the Canadians to gold.
This time, the prize isn't gold; it's merely the right to compete for gold, but in some way that makes the stakes higher. The loser of this match may end up without a medal, while the winner has a chance to come away with everything.
How do the two teams match up this time around?
To answer that question, we will go through the depth charts of each club in the following slideshow, comparing their forward lines and defence pairings. Read on to see who, on paper at least, holds the edge in this game.
