Sochi Olympic hockey, Russia vs. Slovakia: live stream, start time, TV info and more

 

Disappointment can be a great motivator. We’ll see that in action when Russia takes on Slovakia on the final day of the 2014 Winter Olympics men’s ice hockey preliminary tournament. For the Russians, they’ll have to find a way to forget about a heartbreaking loss to the Americans less than 24 hours prior to the start of this contest against Slovakia.

In a tightly contested affair, Russia seemed to go ahead by a goal with less than 10 minutes remaining in the third period. A review of that tally showed that the net behind Jonathan Quick had come off the moorings, which is grounds for automatic goal termination in international play.

Will the ghost of the win that wasn’t haunt the Russians?

Date: February 16
Start Time: 7:30 A.M. ET
Location: Sochi, Russia
TV Info: USA
Live Stream: NBC Live Extra

For Slovakia, this game will also be their chance to right what appears to be a sinking ship. They were defeated by a Slovenia team that was in no way, shape or form supposed to be able to compete and the Slovaks have struggled throughout the tournament. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of effort they come up with against a favored Russian team.

    Russian team are playing like total losers now. I guess loss to US got into their heads pretty good. They had ton of power plays against Slovakia and didn’t score even once, had to do shootouts again.
    With this play they won’t even get to Bronze medal
