The men's and women's hockey tournaments at PyeongChang 2018 are quickly winding down, with the remaining teams in pursuit of medals.

Canada will look to defend its gold in both tournaments while the rest of the field fights to unseat hockey's reigning champion.

Here's what you need to know about the next three games at PyeongChang 2018:

Men's tournament

Canada vs. Germany

Canada squeaked past Finland 1-0 on Wednesday and will square off against a German team that upset Sweden in overtime. It's unclear whether Kevin Poulin or Ben Scrivens will get the start for Canada after the latter suffered an undisclosed injury during Wednesday's quarterfinal. Germany, which earned bronze medals in 1932 and 1976, will have its best opportunity to win gold in more than 40 years against a shaky side.

Czech Republic vs. Olympic Athletes from Russia

Ilya Kovalchuk and Pavel Datsyuk are barreling through PyeongChang, leading the Olympic Athletes from Russia into the semifinals against Czech Republic. Kovalchuk is playing like a man possessed while trying to restore his NHL value. Czech Republic goaltender Pavel Francouz, who has drawn comparisons to Dominik Hasek for his stellar shootout play, will need to be at his best against the tournament favorite.

Women's tournament

Canada vs. U.S.

It's the matchup we've all been waiting for.

Canada and the U.S. will face off for the fifth time in six tournaments with hockey supremacy on the line. The U.S. defeated Canada in two international events in 2017 and would tip the balance of the rivalry in its favor with a victory in the gold medal game. Canada is looking for its fifth consecutive title, with the team's core largely intact from Sochi's gold medal-winning squad. A win could cement forward Marie-Philip Poulin's case as one of the all-time greats.
