The quarter-finals in Montreal would be USA against the third-ranked team of Group B (13:00) and B2-A3 (17:00).

If Team USA wins the game against Canada and becomes first, Canada would play the third-ranked team of Group B (20:00) in Toronto, the other game at the venue would be B1-A4 (15:00). The pairings in Montreal would then be between the United States and the fourth-ranked team of Group B (17:00) and B2-A3 (13:00).

The semi-finals, medal games as well as the best-of-three relegation series between the last-ranked teams from each group will all be played in Toronto.
