MINSK, Belarus — The Czech Republic scored three second-period, power-play goals in beating the United States 4-3 in the quarterfinals of the ice hockey world championship on Thursday.
The Czechs play Canada or Finland in the semifinals on Saturday.
Tomas Rolinek answered Brock Nelson’s power-play goal in the opening period and Tomas Hertl, Roman Cervenka and Ondrej Nemec all beat veteran goaltender Tim Thomas on power plays in less than 10 minutes in the middle period.
U.S. captain Justin Abdelkader received a five-minute penalty and was ejected from the game for a big hit on forward Vladimir Sobotka.
Tyler Johnson scored twice to reduce the deficit in the third but the U.S., bronze medalists last year, came up short.
