The 2014 Olympic men's hockey playoff pairings have been set. Sweden, USA, Canada and Finland have all received a bye into the quarterfinals. Eight other teams head into the qualification playoffs on Tuesday.

With the way the tournament bracket is set up, team USA may have to face a stacked Canadian roster in the men's hockey semifinal, leading to a rematch of the two teams that played for gold in the 2010 Vancouver games.

The medal round in men's hockey began Tuesday, February 18. The quarterfinals are Wednesday.
