Jonathan Quick has earned himself a day off.

After leading the uSA to wins in the first two games including Saturday's thrilling victory over Russia, Quick will not dress on Sunday when the USA faces Slovenia to close out pool play. Ryan Miller will get the start and Jimmy Howard will suit up as the backup.

At this point it's evident that Quick is the Americans' No. 1 goalie but if you can prevent your goalie from playing three games in four days, especially early in a tournament, then it is ideal. Even with their win over Slovakia on Saturday, Slovenia shouldn't present a tremendous challenge for the USA.
