Watch games online on NBC or CTV in Canada.
We'll be doing gameday posts each day of the Men's Hockey Tournament.
Why only the men?
To keep Charlie happy and because it's the only one featuring NHL players.
We'll probably do a gameday for the Women's Final.


The Steel cage is lowered.

Rinkotology is closing at 3:00 pm.

The PG has some great penguins coverage.
Dejan Kovacevic of the PG, one of the few actual decent writers in Pittsburgh is blogging the Olympics:
Malkin will wear No. 11 in this tournament, a number "from my childhood." He had a brief talk with Sidney Crosby this morning. "We've been playing together for five years, we won the Stanley Cup together, and we're friends. I told him good luck. I would never wish him anything bad." But will Malkin hit Crosby? "Yes. And not just once." … Malkin and Gonchar came here by private jet.
Oh man.
another place with great coverage:
We also are trying to track down good links for people to get online and watch the games.
NBC online will be streaming the games live as well.
If you have any, leave them in the comments.
