The final day of hockey at the 2018 Winter Olympics will determine which teams leave Pyeongchang with medals. Germany and the Olympic Athletes from Russia are already assured of spots on the podium as they meet in the gold medal game, while Canada and the Czech Republic will play for the bronze.

The lack of NHL players in the men’s hockey tournament led to the sort of chaos many expected. Germany, which hasn’t medaled in the sport since 1976, is already guaranteed of at least a silver medal. In order to get there, the team needed to win consecutive elimination games against Switzerland, Sweden, and Canada. It did so by the narrowest of margins as each game was decided by a single goal.

There are only two German players with prominent NHL experience, defenseman Christian Ehrhoff and forward Marcel Goc, but that hasn’t stopped the team from making an unexpected run. It’s already the best showing in Olympic hockey ever for the country.

Standing in their way of history is Russia, which remains the heavy favorite from the start of the tournament. A team of KHL stars will be tough to beat, so there’s a good chance that the Russians come away with their first gold medal since 1992 under the Unified Team designation.

Before that game, Canada will face the Czech Republic to determine who wins bronze. The Canadians will be looking for redemption after their surprising defeat to the Germans, while the Czechs are going for their first Olympic medal in men’s hockey since 2006.
