Al Michaels interviews TJ Oshie; NBC primetime Olympics to show hockey shootout

See also

Great news for fans watching NBC! The Winter Olympics primetime coverage is going to air portions of the Team USA hockey game against Russia on Saturday night. The news of the airing of the overtime and shootout came as a welcomed moment for the evening show that seems to be struggling as it is still missing Bob Costas. The decision was announced online by USA Hockey on Saturday, which is the official national governing body of ice hockey in the United States.

TJ Oshie is going to be on television too. According to USA hockey, the NHL player who is now being called a hero sat down with Al Michaels for an interview that will be aired. It was unclear if the taped segment will be in primetime, later in the evening or when the USA vs. Russia game is replayed, but viewers will get to hear Oshie’s version of what happened on the ice too.

The opportunity to see Team USA hockey on evening program really is exciting. Perhaps that is because so many people missed the thrilling game. Or maybe it is because few viewers are excited about the medals America keeps missing. Either way, the segments of the game will be highly watched as the final moments are worth another look! Go Team USA!
