Olympics Channel Surfing: ‘Merica


Channel Surfing is Too Many Men On The Site’s quick guide to tonight’s NHL action, as well as any other interesting broadcasts in the world of hockey. Included is a list of the scheduled games, game notes, as well as a pregame warm up song. 

Olympics – Women’s Hockey

Japan vs Germany 3:00 AM

Sweden vs Russia 12:00 PM

Olympics – Men’s Hockey

Finland vs Austria 3:00 AM [ Preview ] [ Recap ]

Russia vs Slovenia 7:30 AM [ Preview ] [ Recap ]

Slovakia vs United States 7:30 AM [ Preview ]

Canada vs Norway 12:00 PM

Noteable Noteables:

  • Can today live up to the excitement of yesterday’s action? The United States vs Canada Women’s match up lived up to expectations, and Latvia vs Switzerland ended on an exciting Swiss goal in the final 7 seconds.
  • Well today is the day the majority of us have all been waiting for. The Men’s Hockey tournament gets into full swing today with both the United States and Canada taking to the ice, as well as host nation, Russia. Things kick off with Finland vs Austria 3 AM our time (Japan plays Germany in the women’s competition at the same time). Later, we have Russia taking on Slovenia at the same time the United States is facing off against Slovakia. Just in time for lunch, Canada takes on Norway, and Sweden takes on Russia in the women’s competition.
  • Both Finland and Austria need as many points as they can get in a very difficult Group B. Canada is favored over both, but they will be trying to play spoiler all tournament.

Best Dressed:

I am a big fan of the United States jerseys (of course), but today’s best dressed match up will have to do to Canada vs Norway. Unless Canada is wearing those awful black third jerseys, then I rescind that honor; consider the United States and Slovakia the understudy.

My pick for what Team USA should skate out to, but that’s just me.
