SOCHI, Russia —

The U.S. and Canada have chosen to sit the goaltenders that played in the 2010 gold-medal game at the Vancouver Olympics.

The Americans plan to start Jonathan Quick -- not Ryan Miller -- on Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the Sochi Games. He is thankful that his teammates have played well in front of him.

"Guys are playing great in our own end and competing in front of the net when there are rebounds," Quick said.

The U.S. will play the Czech Republic.

The Canadians are going with Carey Price -- not Roberto Luongo -- when they're among the final eight teams in the 12-team tournament.

"I'm excited," Price said. "I'm grateful for the opportunity."

The defending Olympic champions will face Latvia.

Quick started two games in the preliminary round, including the 3-2 shootout win over the host Russians. Price was also in net for two of Canada's first three games.

Luongo helped Canada beat Miller and the U.S. at the Vancouver Games in overtime.
