Though the Islanders not named Mark Streit will be off in Mexico, Ontario and assorted points in between, we'll still be talking hockey of all varieties during the NHL's Olympic break here at Lighthouse Hockey. Part of that will be the occasional game thread/chat and quick review. If you have a must-see game you're going to watch, chime in -- even start a FanShot thread if there isn't one already up. My rooting bias will be anything involving Streit, as well as the USA and Czech Republic for my own "roots" reasons; but all your partisan cowbell-clanging is welcome here.
And by all means, feel free to write your own Olympic content in FanPosts: Confessed Norwegian homer Hans und Franz got us started off with reviews of the lesser-known Olympic hockey rosters here: Part I (Norway and Switzerland), and Part II (Latvia), and Part III (Germany and Belarus). And Swiss partisan BenHasna left his thorough remarks about Streit's team.
For reference, after the jump is a list of men's and women's games, with U.S./Canadian TV schedule when available. The NBC networks have listed almost all of these as "LIVE," but you know with Olympic coverage that can mean a lot of things -- particularly with the large window placed next to some of these games (something that is doubly irritating for DVR purposes, when the only window available is six hours with a game scheduled smack dab in the middle). Though Canadian networks are also listed when I've found them, the time windows (EST) are from the U.S. corporate giant and "NHL partner" that has paid good money to slap their logo all up and down these games.
Update: Thanks to TMC for posting a more precise schedule -- minus the "Oh, catch hockey sometime in between snow angels and this feature on the Mongolian figure skater" windows.
Note: All times Eastern.
