The World Cup of Hockey rolls on with two more games today. Team Europe, coming off their shutout of Team USA on Saturday, faces the Czech Republic, who were shut out by Team Canada. And in the night game, Russia and North America face off, one day after opening their tournaments (TNA with a win, Russia with a loss)

Times and broadcast info

  • Team Europe vs. Team Czech Republic, 3 p.m., ESPN, SN, TVA Sports
  • Team Russia vs. Team North America, 8 p.m., ESPN2, SN, TVA Sports

Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak was the star of Team Europe’s first game, making 35 saves in a win over an ineffective American team. Now they’re playing a Czech team fighting for pride after being trashed by Canada 6-0. These are the first two teams to play a second game in this short tournament.
