The stage is set as we head into the home stretch in the Men’s Hockey Competition at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Today, will be the last day of competition before the Gold and Bronze Medal games, so this is really the end of the line.
In this encounter the number one seed is going up against the number four seed. This means that today when St. Louis Blues left wing Alex Steen and Team Sweden walk into the Bolshoy Ice Dome today, they will be preparing to do battle with Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Sami Salo and one of the most dangerous goaltending trifectas in the competition, Team Finland.
The winner of this game will go on to face the winner of the Team USA vs. Team Canada game for the opportunity to stand on the top of the podium and receive the Gold Medal this year.
As you can imagine, there is quite the time difference between the Bolts Nation and Sochi, Russia. So we have gathered all the information you’ll need to make sure you don’t miss a minute of the action from the 2014 Winter Olympic Games
