Yes, broadcast on NBCSN - my DVR is set!
As far as I can tell TSN is broadcasting the US vs the Russian People's Representatives early tomorrow morning but not the Canada vs Finland game that takes place before that one at 1:30 A.M. CST!! How much sense does that make?
Does anyone know if the Canada vs Finland game is being broadcast/streamed anywhere?
Yes, broadcast on NBCSN - my DVR is set!
Minnesota Golden Gopher Hockey
There are full replays available to the NBC 'results' page.
Go to the link, click on the "+" next to hockey, then click on "See Full Hockey Schedule". There will be a "Full Replay" for each game already played.
So, one could watch the US live in the AM, then watch the stream of Canada after (although they will have told you the result during the US game), or watch them both via the stream in the order played.

Thanks guys...I'll check those out. Although the tv route probably won't work since I scoured the tv listings twice already and no go.
Game starts in 3 hours but the benefit here is I can get some sleep as compared to staying up till 4 in the morning watching the US vs Finland game a couple nights ago. Pros and cons to everything.
I am not saying that the Bulldogs should give their scholarships to Croatians instead of Hornets, I am saying that the cause of worldwide women's hockey development is advanced when European (or Asian) players come to the US for college hockey.
Miller (UMD) was the only one doing that for years and after other schools started to go to school on her (UND, and to a lesser extent UM, OSU, and I think BSU from what I recall with a few others) it became more difficult for her because now she had competition in the European recruiting pool.
I'm still waiting for someone to recruit a player from The Faroe Islands.
Forgot that I had seen the game listed as being scheduled to be broadcast on the Latin channel so I wrote it off.
Heard some English happening an hour before the game so decided I'd take my chances. No luck. Play by play is in Italian...which isn't half as weird as the NHL game I stumbled upon a few months ago with the play by play in Punjabi. That took a while to wrap my head around. But the problem here is the more I listen to this Italian play by play guy the hungrier I'm getting. He certainly does sound enthusiastic enough.
Fin 0 - Can 2 (arguably 3) after one.
Canada scored a scant 25 seconds into the game on a beautiful play by Daoust with Agosta on a 2 on 1. She delayed the pass until she had both the defenceman and Raty committed to their left and dished it to Agosta who had the open net. Raty didn't even attempt to turn towards Agosta which is unusual for her but I guess she thought she was so cleanly beaten that there was no point.
Finland had a couple of chances but didn't capitalize.
Then one of their defenders came out from behind her net and the puck bounced off her stick as she gained momentum and Poulin was there to scoop it up right in front of Raty...deeked her cleanly and went 3 hole with a backhand but the ref didn't see it and it was a minute or so later that it was reviewed and confirmed.
Then late in the period Johnson with a wrist shot short side that looked like it went in and Spooner was there to bang it home (again?) and both she and Johnson raised their arms signalling a goal but the ref didn't see this one either. This one was understandable. But no overhead camera??? That might have confirmed it either way. It was reviewed and waived off. Raty was sliding back into her net and you couldn't see the puck outside the goal line or between her pad and the post so one would think that it was past the goal line but her pad was up against the inside of the net and it might have been massaged forward...who knows, except maybe those three?
Team Canada is giving Raty and Finland nightmares so far.
I thought the officials' skill level was very amateurish at best. Not sure they should be doing Olympic hockey. They seemed to not be able to move quick enough to get out of the way, too short to see the play on the far side of the net, and simply looked out of their element. Maybe they should be doing D3 games where they might be able to do a better job.
Szabados looked to be fighting the puck all night. Her upper body appeared to be always leaning too far forward when the action came towards her which made her look off-balance and not as laterally mobile as in the past. Jealous of her hair though!

4-0 Canada after two. Nice goal by Saulnier all alone after a long head man pass to her by Johnson. Between the 1 and 2 hole.
Missed the third goal and no replays between periods. (Maybe someone can fill me in).
Finland scored about 8 minutes into the third after catching Canada on a bad change (only 2 men on the ice)...this gave the Finns an extra spark.
Canada with lots of opportunities in close throughout the game.
Raty pulled for the extra attacker with 3 minutes left but no go.
Good fast game with a different feel than the US - Finland game. As great a team as Finland has you sensed that this one was never in doubt. The first goal 25 seconds into the game might have had something to do with that.

What the f is wrong with the refs? Dumb, incompetent, just plain negligent and stupid . They should not be refereeing women's games. Very obvious from the CBC angle showed the puck going in. The problem with the IIHF is they are so obsessed about the image of women refereeing women's games and "growing the game" that they will hire yahoos to referee important games at the Olympics.
Women or not, dumb and incompetent people should not be deciding important games, much less at the Olympics.
in other very disappointing news, team canada women's GM publicly stated that at the next OG, will see an all women alumni coaching staff at the team canada women's senior level. This is concerning given the horrible results that the women's coaching staff have achieved for 4 years at all levels. No to Nadine Muzerall, Cara Morey, and the likes. They have had their chance and blew it.
I heard Ohio does have 3 Europeans coming in next year. A F, D and G. They were turned down by the Euro's they really wanted but the shift is starting.
