All six Chicago Blackhawks will again be in action on Wednesday, but this time they’ll be headed back to Chicago if they lose.
The day begins with Patrick Kane and the USA playing Jonas Hiller and Switzerland at 2:00 pm. FINALLY, the game will be on NBC.
Canada, featuring Jonathan Toews, Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook, plays Alex Ovechkin and Russia in the marquee matchup of the playoffs at 6:30. This game, however, will air on CNBC.
The final game of the night (again) will feature Marian Hossa, Tomas Kopecky and Slovakia as they challenge Sweden at 10:55. This game is also scheduled to air on CNBC.
If Slovakia and Canada both win their games, Hossa and Kopecky would face Toews, Keith and Seabrook for the first time in the tournament, with the winner playing in the gold medal game. Kane and the United States won’t see Slovakia or Canada until the gold medal round.
