NHL Network to Air, NHL.com to Stream All U.S. Games Live

If you don’t mind waking up early, NHL Network and USA Hockey today announced that the Network will be airing all Team USA games live throughout the U.S. Additionally, NHL.com will stream the U.S. games live, so you’re covered if you do’t have the Network and live in the United States.

In addition to all USA games, NHL Network will air 12 other games including each of Canada’s preliminary-round games, both quarterfinals, both semifinals and both the bronze and gold-medal games, regardless of U.S. participation. Also, for those hard-core individuals out there, NHL Network is airing each of Team USA’s two pre-tournament games.

Steve Mears, Penguins radio play-by-play man, will be calling the action, while NHL.com/NHL Network’s E.J. Hradek will provide color. Rob Simpson returns for the second straight year to provide rink-side coverage.

NHL.com/NHL Network will also be utilizing Adam Kimelman and Mike Morreale from NHL.com, as well as Dave Starman (who has done color for this tournament for the last several years) for in-depth analysis.

The good news for fans is that you can follow the coverage. The bad news is, you have to get up at some seriously ungodly hours to do so live. Each tournament game will be replayed at a more reasonable hour, but if you love this tournament, you’re getting up, right?

I’ll be getting up with you, providing game previews, recaps and in-game analysis on Twitter. So please keep me company.

Full schedule after the jump.
