The Buffalo Sabres released forward Linus Omark by terminating his contract, in a move that frees the Swedish-born player to pursue his career in Europe. The Sabres announced the move once Omark went unclaimed Tuesday, a day after being placed on unconditional waivers. The team's decision to cut ties with Omark came a little more than a week after the player declined to report to Buffalo's AHL affiliate in Rochester. Omark's agent, Kevin Epp, said in an email to The Associated Press that his client is traveling to Europe, though it's not yet clear where he will be playing.

Roman Cervenka scored for a second time late in the second period to give the Czech Republic a four-goal lead, and it went on to beat Slovakia 5-3 on Tuesday and advance to an Olympic quarterfinal match against the United States. ''We're one game away to play for a medal and that's pretty special,'' David Krejci said after scoring the third of the Czechs' first-period goals. They pulled their goaltender to create an even-strength situation and Tomas Plekanec scored an empty-net goal 14 seconds later for the Czechs. ''We got the job done, that's the most important thing,'' said Krejci, a Boston Bruins forward.

Latvia's reward for its first Olympic victory in 12 years is a quarterfinal date with defending champion Canada. That sobering realization couldn't dampen the thrill for coach Ted Nolan and his underdog players after they made a bit of hockey history in Sochi. Oskars Bartulis and Lauris Darzins scored in the first period, and Latvia reached the Olympic men's hockey quarterfinals for the first time with a 3-1 victory over Switzerland on Tuesday night. Edgars Masalskis made 32 saves and Darzins added an empty-net goal in the Latvians' first Olympic victory since 2002, when they returned to the games after a 66-year absence.

U.S. hockey team general manager David Poile is recovering from a third surgery after being hit with an errant puck to the face Feb. 6 that broke his nose and cracked bone around one of his eyes. Poile, also GM of the Nashville Predators, had surgery Feb. 14 at Vanderbilt University Medical Center so doctors could evaluate the damage around his eye. He was hurt while standing in a tunnel behind the bench in Minnesota during a Predators' pregame skate when a deflected puck hit him. He needed two surgeries in Minnesota, and the injuries preventing Poile from traveling to Sochi.

When Sidney Crosby went through the entire preliminary round of the Olympic men's hockey tournament without scoring a goal, it set off waves of concern back home. Canadians should know better than anybody that Crosby is more into big Olympic finishes. ''I think you always want more,'' Crosby said when asked if he was doing enough for Canada. The NHL's top scorer has two assists while playing with a rotating cast of wings, and coach Mike Babcock appears ready to shake it up again Tuesday, perhaps reuniting Crosby with his much-criticized Pittsburgh teammate, Chris Kunitz.

Oshie in Sochi becomes an overnight sensation (Yahoo Sports)

T.J. Oshie, the mild-mannered forward who morphed into Superman and single-handedly outscored Russia in a shootout for the ages, won't sneak up on anyone again soon, let alone against the Americans' next opponent in Wednesday's Olympic quarterfinals. In the days since the win over Russia, Oshie has become the hottest U.S. import here since the iPad. He got a shout-out from President Barack Obama as part of his star turn on Twitter, talked to the ''Today'' show and met what he called ''some pretty influential people.'' Just as his teammates let up on the needling and things began to slow down, his jerseys started flying off store shelves and his agent's phone nearly blew up.

When Alexander Radulov pumped both fists and let loose a jubilant scream, an entire hockey nation also exhaled for a day. Radulov had two goals and an assist, and Russia survived its first elimination game in Sochi with a 4-0 victory Tuesday over Norway in the qualification round. Sergei Bobrovsky made 22 saves in the second straight shutout victory for the fifth-seeded Russians, who earned a meeting with Finland in the quarterfinals Wednesday. ''It is do-or-die games right now,'' said Alex Ovechkin, who hasn't scored a goal in three games.

Anze Kopitar gets to keep playing for his father in the Olympics for at least another game. The Los Angeles Kings forward scored 5:29 into the first period Tuesday to help Slovenia beat Austria 4-0 in the qualification round of the Sochi Games, extending the experience of playing for his father, Matjaz, on the world's stage. Slovenia, in the Olympic hockey for the first time and with only one NHL player, is among the final eight teams in the tournament. ''Let's say it is a miracle because this is really amazing,'' goaltender Robert Kristan said after a 30-save shutout.

The possibility of the NHL players competing in the 2018 Olympics won't be discussed by the league during the Sochi Games. ''It's not anything we're focused on dealing with right now,'' Commissioner Gary Bettman said. Bettman was joined at a news conference Tuesday by NHL Players' Association Executive Director Don Fehr and International Ice Hockey Federation President Rene Fasel. The 2018 Winter Games will be in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and no one knows if NHL players will be there.

Unbeaten men's hockey teams prepare for big finish (Yahoo Sports)

Canada, Sweden and the U.S. men all made it through the first week of the Olympic hockey tournament without a loss. No team that went unbeaten in group play has won an Olympic gold medal since the NHL joined the games in 1998. Every champion was forced to regroup after getting beaten early in the tournament, from the Czech Republic in 1998 to the host Canadians four years ago in Vancouver. ''Obviously these (elimination) games always have a bit more of a different feel, but you don't want to have to change the way you play a whole lot,'' Canada captain Sidney Crosby said.
