Team USA’ head coach Dan Bylsma has reportedly decided to roll with Kings’ goaltender Jonathan Quick for their quarterfinal game on Wednesday – according to the USA Hockey Twitter handle.

Quick, 28, has started two games for the Americans, and won both, surrendering just three goals.

This comes to no surprise, given how well he’s performed. Backup goaltender Ryan Miller played exceptional in their victory Sunday over Team Slovenia, but considering Quick had the start originally, and hasn’t suffered a loss, he held the edge.

The U.S. will draw either the Czech Republic or Slovakia in the quarterfinals.

Wednesday’s game can be seen on the USA Network, and is slated to start at noon.
