See also

The Olympic Games will finally get underway full-time on Saturday, February 8, with events in hockey, figure skating, cross-country skiing and more. Below you’ll find a full list of televised events, broken down by sport. If you’re looking for a chronological timeline, please click here.

All times listed are central times, and all event schedules reflect those available on the NBC Kare 11 website. All listings are subject to change.

Please note, two events you won’t want to miss:
Men’s preliminary ice hockey, Canada vs. Switzerland, MSNBC, 7 a.m.: This match up provides a great way to kick off the 2014 men’s ice hockey tournament. In 2006 the Swiss team surprised the Canadians when they won their game 2-0, and in 2010 the Swiss nearly did it again, forcing the game into a shootout. The Canadian team eventually walked away with a 1-0 win.

Men’s 5,000-meter speedskating event, NBC Sports Network, 4:30 a.m.: Sven Kramer of the Netherlands is the defending Olympic gold medalist and the favorite to win again in this event. This is the Olympic Games, though, and anything could happen. Watch out for Kramer’s teammate, Jorrit Bergsma, who won silver behind Kramer in the 5,000-meter at the most recent world championships.
