Sochi Olympic hockey, Slovenia vs. Austria: live stream, start time, TV info and more

The preliminary round of the 2014 Winter Olympics men’s ice hockey tournament have come to an end. Slovenia and Austria will be the first two teams to take part in the qualification round today, and the stakes are high as it’s a single-elimination, loser-goes-home format.

The four teams that received first-round byes await the winners of these contests, and both Slovenia and Austria have the necessary skill to prevail here. If Slovenia can find their top-end game and perform up to expectations, they should be able to come away with a victory.

Austria was able to score some goals in the preliminary round, but they were only making things more interesting for Finland in their first game of the tourney. The Austrians were no match for Canada in the second game, but still managed to hold the offense to zero goals through the first period of play.

With a victory over Norway, Austria was able to get into the win column during prelims. Looking for how and where to watch this contests? Look no further.
