The US Men's team, with wins over Canada and Switzerland in their last two games, sits 4-4 in the round robin, and must win their next and final game against Great Britain (really Scotland) to have a shot at the 4-team medal playoff.
That game is tonight at
8:05 PM 12:05 AM Eastern. Best bet is to stream on the NBC Sports app.
Team USA controls their own destiny: a loss and they are out but a win secures them at least a tiebreaker game opportunity to make the playoff.
Your rooting interests for this last session:
1) USA beats GBR
CAN beats DEN DEN beats CAN (thanks for the correction Alton)
3) KOR beats JPN
4) Whoever in SWE vs. NOR. Sweden has already guaranteed the top seed, and Norway was eliminated with a loss against Italy.
This creates a 4 way tie for 2nd. USA would take the 2nd seed by virtue of their 3-0 record against the other 3. The other 3 are all 1-2 against the 4 tied teams (and 1-1 against each other), so the third seed would be awarded to whoever has the best score from the last stone draws (currently SUI). The final two teams would play for the last spot.
This would put Sweden and Canada in the 1 and 2 spots, with a 3-way tie for 3rd between USA, GBR, and SUI. USA would automatically advance due to their wins over both teams, and SUI and GBR would play a single tiebreaker game for the last spot.
If Japan beats Korea, this would create a 5-way tie at 5-4 for the last 3 playoff spots. Again, USA would advance automatically by virtue of their top record against the tied teams (they would be 3-1), leaving CAN, GBR, SUI, and JPN to play two tiebreakers, with the two winners advancing.
