Coyotes Sochi Central


When: Saturday, 8 a.m. MT (NBCSN, CBC)

Where: Bolshoy Arena.


Note: Coyotes forward Lauri Korpikoski will play for Finland. He is playing at the Olympics for the first time/seeking his first Olympic medal.

What's at stake: The United States and Finland have the opportunity to make the long trip to Sochi a bit more memorable by taking home some hardware.

A win by the U.S. would be the men's team's first Olympic hockey medal won outside North America since capturing silver at the 1972 Sapporo Olympics.

The Finns haven't won Olympic gold since the NHL began sending players in 1998, but they have won some kind of medal three times in the past four Olympics.

What's next: The winning team will get its medal Sunday after Canada and Sweden play for the gold medal. The players and coaches from the losing team will immediately return to their NHL or club teams.
