It’s Canada vs USA again in Olympic hockey–only this time it’s the men.
Canada’s women’s team beat the USA in a close 3-2 overtime match on Thursday. The men are set to battle on Friday at 12 p.m. ET (9 p.m. Sochi time).
They’re playing in the semifinal, which means that whoever wins will go on to the gold medal game to face the winner of the other semifinal, Sweden vs Finland.
The loser will face the loser of that match, which is set for 7 a.m. on Friday. Russia is out of the finals after a stunning loss to Finland in the quarterfinals.
Coverage of the Canada vs USA match begins on NBCSN at 11:45 a.m.
The game will also be livestreamed on NBC’s website, as with all Olympic events.

The U.S. team will be looking for revenge after losing in the gold medal game to the Canadians in 2010 in Vancouver.
The team easily passed the Czech Republic in the quarterfinals, 5-2.
USA coach Dan Bylsma said that the matchup vs Canada “is a matchup we certainly all wanted … Now we have the rematch.”
Canada won its quarterfinal match against Latvia 2-1. Some believe that the close match indicates the U.S. are stronger than the Canadians this year.
