Olympic Preview: All Six Blackhawks Play Thursday

All six Chicago Blackhawks will be in action on Thursday in Vancouver.

The action starts at 2:00 PM, when Patrick Kane and the United States play Norway. The game is scheduled to air on USA.

Norway was the victim of Canada’s opening night blow-out, while the US skated to a 3-1 victory. Kane skated well, but failed to score a point in the game despite leading team USA with four shots on goal.

At 6:30 PM, Canada plays the Switzerland squad that lost to the United States on Tuesday. The game is scheduled to air on CNBC.

Against Norway, Jonathan Toews was credited with an assist as the host Canadians ran away in the second and third periods. Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook skated with a number of different players, and Seabrook ended up playing the fewest minutes of the seven active defensemen on Canada’s roster. Seabrook did, however, have a couple devastating hits in the game.

Finally, in the late game (again), Slovakia plays Russia. The game is scheduled to begin at 10:55 PM, and air on CNBC.

Russia dominated Latvia in their opener on Tuesday, while Slovakia lost on Wednesday night to the Czech Republic. Marian Hossa had an assist for Slovakia, while Tomas Kopecky contributed nothing in the box score.
