It's just day one but obviously I'm impressed by Norway and America

 

I'm stoked about USA.  We've got a solid squad and a real chance at gold.

I just realized I'm gonna miss at least the first period of the US-Russia game on Saturday. Start time for the game is, I believe, 7:30 AM ET, and I have something scheduled at, yes, 7:30 AM ET. Boooooo.

 

How about those Finns. I know Austria is Austria, but still.


Don't Toews me, bro!

I'm not sure if you're able to watch it streaming or how NBC does their streaming service but on CBC's site you can load the stream and restart it at the beginning so you'll still see the whole game you'll just be a period behind.

 

If you're not in Canada the instructions for connecting to CBC from another country are posted in the schedule thread

Sofar...

The good:
Norway and slovenia looked way better then expected.
(granted the slovs jerseys are terrible and making out the numbers are impossible.)

The bad:
Zetterberg and dats are badly dented.
The russian own zone coverage and defense, looks as organized and solid as a bunch of lemmings in a burning building.
D.sedin looks as lost as hes done over the last two months with the nucks.


The ugly:
Getzlaf continues his international career of kneeing.
Nichuskin continues to run into goalies.

Sweden is having trouble without Z, while Switzerland is really putting up a good fight. 

 

Refs just ignored a too many men penalty by Sweden.

So much win. Too bad Americans don't get into it like that.

Btw, is that person on the left saluting someone or just looking off into the distance? I'm mobile... Small screen...

I beg to differ.  Many was the time in my computer class that I had the game on.

 

Once I called my employees from the hospital where I was getting stitches to get the score of the Wings/Sharks playoff game.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

NBCOlympics.com is streaming the games and you can rewind to the beginning.  Alternately, I believe they have iPhone/Android apps for streaming as well.  So long as you have a cable subscription you should be alright.

That's awesome.  I'm sure we would have more of that if all the USA games were not prior to 8AM.  At least Sat/Sun will be easy.  DVR, wake up, watch.

Not sure what he is doing lol.

 

All the bars in Toronto were booked a month before the Olympics started. I'm starting to think people don't work anymore. :lol:

Poor guy trying to get back to the bench after getting hit with a Shea Weber shot and the dumb ref bumps him.

i disagree also. when I had evening classes I'd have the game on my laptop as well.

and most of the time people around me would be looking over to watch too :P
