2014 Winter Olympics: Canada Takes On Austria As Group C Play Starts In Men's Hockey

Bruce Bennett

There are several hockey games on the schedule today, including Canada's matchup against Austria. Jamie Benn will hope to follow up a dominating performance after yesterday's opening game for Team Canada, while Kari Lehtonen gets the start in net for Finland.

So yesterday was a good day to be a Dallas Stars fan. Between Valeri Nichushkin and Jamie Benn's performances, the Stars' offensive leaders got some well deserved attention after the games.

Kari Lehtonen, the third Stars player representing their country at the Olympics, is expected to start in goal for Finland's game against the Norwegians. Here is the schedule of today's men's hockey games as well as television information:

Team
Team Time Channel
Czech Republic v Latvia 2:00 AM CST MSNBC
Sweden v Switzerland 6:30 AM CST NBCSN
Canada v Austria 11:00 AM CST USA
Norway v Finland 11:00 AM CST MSNBC

In non-hockey related events, we have the following medal games today: men's 15km freestyle cross country, men's super combined slalom, women's 15km individual biathlon, men's figure skating, women's skeleton, and women's aerials freestyle skiing. There's also some curling and ski jumping going as well.

Join us as we discuss all things Olympics related on this beautiful Friday.
