Still to Come
Women’s Hockey Gold Medal Game: On Thursday (12 p.m. ET), it’s USA vs. Canada in their fourth Olympic gold medal game (and only the fifth overall). Canada’s taken the last three women’s hockey golds, and they also barely beat out the U.S. in pool play last week, 3-2. It’s the most heated rivalry at the Winter Games, so find a way to watch it at work or on tape delay Thursday night.
Four-Man Bobsled: On Saturday (11:30 a.m. ET) and Sunday (4:30 a.m. ET), the U.S. men look to defend their 2010 gold medal, featuring two members of that squad and two new faces. They’ll be one of the favorites.
Men’s Hockey Enters the Elimination Round: The knockout round of the Main Event kicks off on Tuesday, as the bottom eight teams play for spots in the quarterfinals. The U.S. awaits the winner of Czech Republic-Slovakia for their QF matchup on Wednesday, but don’t count on another U.S.-Canada gold medal game, as the bracket is set to pit the two countries together in the semifinals, should each one get there. But regardless, it’s a tough tournament with a lot of talent throughout the icy parts of the world, so don’t take anything for granted. The Games close with the men’s gold medal game on Sunday morning (7 a.m. ET).
