Olympics Hockey: USA vs Canada Live Stream
Posted by Randy
USA vs Canada Hockey Live Stream: This Sunday’s hockey game between USA and Canada could be the biggest game of 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics in terms of media attention, viewers and ticket sales.
The excitement behind Sunday’s game is as much as or could be more than that of a gold-medal match if the Canadians will not be on it. It is safe to say that Canadians will be watching the game along with US hockey fans live either in the arena or at their homes via MSNBC.
The USA vs Canada match is just a part of Super Sunday of Olympic hockey. Sunday’s games will include the last three gold-medal game match-ups at the Hockey Canada Place. Russia’s hockey team will take on Czech Republic, a rematch of the 1998 Olympic gold-medal match while 2006 Torino Olympics finalists Sweden and Finland will also take part of the triple-header.
The US squad will try to take their revenge against Canada who won the gold-medal in 2002 Winter Olympics at Salt Lake City. USA is Canada’s second biggest hockey rival behind Russia. The Russia-Canada rivalry dates back a long time ago.
“Canada and Russia will always have a rivalry in men’s hockey,” said Canadian forward Jonathan Toews. “US and Canada is one that has grown. But they are both different. The one with Russia dates back a long time. I have grown up with the American one being bigger and at the forefront.”
The winner of Sunday’s game will finish first in their group and receive a bye into the Men’s hockey quarter-finals.
