Coyotes Sochi Central


When: Sunday 5 a.m. MT (NBC)

Where: Bolshoy Ice Dome


Note: Coyotes defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson is on Sweden's roster. Coyotes goalie Mike Smith is on Canada's roster. Both are first-time Olympians.

What's at stake: Canada is trying to become the first nation to repeat as Olympic champion since the Soviet Union won in 1984 and '88 (the Unified Team, made up of much of the former USSR, also won in 1992).

Sweden, which won in 2006, is aiming for its second gold medal in eight years.

Each nation is coming off a one-goal victory against a major rival in its semifinal game.

What’s next: One team will go home happy, one will leave disappointed. But by late in the week, all will be back with their club teams.
