Chicago Blackhawks prospects Vincent Hinostroza and Tyler Motte will look to help the United States defeated defending champion Canada in the semifinals at the World Championships on Saturday. A win by the Americans would put them in the gold-medal game for the first time since 1960, which is also the last time they won the tournament.

Tampa Bay held off Pittsburgh to win Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final and tie the series at 2-2 on Friday. San Jose looks to take a commanding 3-1 series lead in the Western Conference Final against San Jose on Saturday.
