February 17 :: Olympic Game Thread

Join us today for a special game thread during today's Olympic contests: 

3:00pm :: Finland vs. Belarus [airing on MSNBC]
Valtteri Filppula is a member of Team Finland, but last I heard he was injured and may not be in the lineup. Grand Rapids Griffin and Red Wing prospect Sergei Kolosov was named to Team Belarus last month.

7:30pm :: Germany vs. The Detroit Red Wings -- I mean, Sweden [airing on CNBC]
Team Sweden is -- like in '06 -- full of Wings. Detroit captain Nicklas Lidstrom also captains the Tre Kronor, a team that includes Niklas Kronwall, Henrik Zetterberg, and Johan Franzen (who was a late injury replacement for Tomas Holmstrom). Third string goaltender Stefan Liv is a former Red Wings prospect. 

11:55pm :: Czech Republic vs. Slovakia [airing on CNBC]
Come watch as Wings fans boo Marian Hossa and Tomas Kopecky mercilessly. Playing for the Czech Republic is Red Wing prospect Miroslav Blatak.
