A big matchup between the United States and Olympic Athletes from Russia highlights the Olympic hockey schedule for Saturday. That game in the men’s tournament starts at 7:10 a.m. ET and will be broadcast live on NBCSN.

There are six hockey games in total set for the day in Pyeongchang. It’s going to be a busy day as the men’s group stage and women’s quarterfinals wrap up in preparation for a thrilling final week of hockey in Pyeongchang.

The primary focus in North America will be on the USA-Russia game that starts early in the morning, but the stakes will be higher for the women’s quarterfinal matchup between Finland and Sweden at 2:40 a.m. ET.

The winner of the Finland-Sweden game will advance to face Kendall Coyne and the American women in the semifinal with a trip to the gold medal game on the line. A dozen years ago, Sweden pulled off one of women’s hockey’s biggest upsets by knocking out the U.S. in the semifinals, so they’ll try to pull off that miracle again starting with a win over Finland.

The other three men’s games will see Switzerland take on South Korea, Slovenia face Slovakia, and Germany against Norway. The Slovenia-Slovakia game will be of particular interest to U.S. fans as that result will have an impact on the final results in Group B.

The Americans can clinch the top spot in Group B with a win over the Russians on Saturday, which would earn a bye to the quarterfinals.
