    My favorite part of having sporting events take place on the other side of the world is having something interesting to watch when I wake up in the morning. USA hockey live at 7:30am? Bring it on!

    Thanks,but I got mine from NHL Game Center a while ago

    I’m sure many of these games are going to rebroadcast at some point. Any chance you could share those times with us? I’d love to watch the USA and Canada play live but I’m not sure 4:30 am is going to work for me out on the West Coast. Besides, I’m traveling for work over the next two weeks and won’t have NBCSN in my hotel room, and I’m not sure the hotel bar will be hosting hockey a few hours before sunrise.

    Well, I wake up at 4am out of the house by 4:30… DVR to the rescue! USA!

  5. wingsdjy - Feb 12, 2014 at 12:36 PM

    For once, I won’t be annoyed when the kids wake me up early Saturday morning. Go USA! Beat the Ruskies!

    Just remember to not check social media or any news apps if you dvr!

    I’ve on plenty of occasions recorded a live sporting event only to have Facebook or USA today news app ruin the fun

    We’re expecting to be snowed-in tomorrow here on the East Coast. Can’t think of a better way to spend a snow day!

    Go, USA!!

    7:30am is murder! I go to bed at 6 – out of choice. 3am games are no problem and I can get up early for the noon ones.

      you go to bed at 6? and i thought i had a bad sleep schedule

    As a fan in Europe, it’s certainly nice to watch NHLers participate in hockey games that aren’t in the wee hours of the morning for once. All of you who hate those afternoon games (and these ‘early’ morning games) don’t realise how nice it is to watch those games, especially since they are at a normal hour.

      It seems that the schedule will never be able to satisfy everyone on the planet. Glad for you, prd797.

      And, I’m curious. Would you reveal for which country you’re rooting?
