The Sochi 2014 Men's Olympic Hockey live stream and TV schedule is about to get real interesting. After today's qualification action, the world now knows who the elite eight teams are that will be battling for a shot at Olympic Gold, and this time tomorrow the field will be leveled down to the final four. With the US and Canada doing so well fans in all of North America are glad that live stream viewing is available for every game so fans on the go can catch the action as it unfolds.
According to NHL.com on Feb. 18, USA vs. Czech Republic will be the last game to drop the puck tomorrow night. The drive towards Olympic Gold will get underway slightly after noon EST tomorrow.
The Americans may be the favorite in tomorrow's game, but USA coach, and Grand Haven, Mi. native Dan Bylsma knows there are a lot of things Team USA still needs to work on, even though they are 3-0 so far in the Olympic games.
"I would say there are opportunities that we have missed that we can play quickly, play north, push the pace up the ice," Bylsma said following the Americans' practice Tuesday. "That's something we did well at times; I just think we can be better at realizing that."
Bylsma knows even though the Czech team finished 1-2 in the preliminary rounds, they will still be tough to beat, especially knowing it's one and done from here on out. LA Kings net-minder Jonathan Quick will once again get the nod in goal for Team USA. Quick has played great so far in goal, winning both his starts in group play.
Vegas odds makers don't believe the US will slip up as they come into this game as a 2 goal favorite to knock off the Czech Republic. Overall, Canada is the favorite to win the Gold Medal, followed by USA and Russia according to a SB Nation report on Feb. 17.
Hockey fans can catch all the action tomorrow at high noon EST on USA, or streaming live online on NBC Sports Extra.
