Sochi 2014 Men’s Hockey Semifinal USA vs Canada live stream, TV info, Vegas odds

The Sochi 2014 Men's Olympic Hockey live stream and TV schedule is down to the semifinals. Surprisingly, the team that was favored to win the Gold Medal coming into the tournament is nowhere to be found. The final four in Men's Olympic Hockey will feature two of the heavy Vegas favorites in Team USA and Canada, but noticeably missing from the action will be host city Russia. Even with the host city knocked out of the Gold/Silver competition, thus leaving no possible USA/Canada vs Russia finale, the live stream and TV coverage of Team USA vs. Canada will still have hockey fans in North America on the edge of their seats.

According to a New York Times report on Feb. 19, the Russian team was sent packing yesterday after falling to Finland 3-1 yesterday afternoon in front of a 90% home town crowd that stood in disbelief when the final horn sounded.

Now with top favorite eliminated, can one of the bigger underdogs, (Sweden or Finland) win the Gold? One of them will be in the Gold Medal game, that much we know, but will they face the US or Canada?

Unlike the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver or the Olympic Games in Salt Lake City, Utah back in 2002, this match-up between these two powerhouses isn't for all the marbles. The winner of tomorrow's game will advance to the championship game on Saturday, while the loser may win the bronze, or they may not win anything at all depending on the final results.

Either way, Team USA knows that Canada has had their number of late, but they believe they can change things around in Sochi.

"I mean it's a nice chance for some redemption," said Minnesota Wild forward Zach Parise, who scored the last-minute goal to force overtime in 2010. "It's not going to be an easy game, we know how good they are. The game when these two teams meet, it brings out the best in everyone and it always makes for a good game. We know how hard it's going to be. We have to make sure we're ready to play."

Canada will be without a key member of their team, New York Islanders center John Tavares. Tavares will be out for not just the rest of the Olympic Games, but the entire season after suffering a knee injury.

Team USA has only trailed once in the entire Olympic Games, but if they want to pull off the upset over the favored Canadian Team, Jonathan Quick will have to continue his great play.

Las Vegas odds makers have made Canada the favorite at -1.5, with the over/under number total set at 5.5. The game is scheduled to start at noon EST and can be seen on NBC Sports Network, CBC Canada and streaming online at NBC Sports Extra.
