Your Complete Men's Olympic Hockey Schedule

The 2014 Winter Olympics are under way in Sochi.  Though messy and controversial we're all looking forward to one thing: hockey.  For your ease, and bookmarking, the list of Men's games.  All times are Eastern Standard.  You'll want to set your alarms.

Brooks Orpik and Sidney Crosby will face off in Sochi

All teams have been split into three groups:

Evgeni Malkin vies for gold with Team Russia
GROUP A:

Russia*
Slovakia
United States*
Slovenia

GROUP B:

Finland*
Canada*
Norway
Austria

Chris Kunitz will play in his first Olympic games
GROUP C:

Czech Republic
Sweden
Switzerland
Latvia

There is a nine hour time difference between Sochi, Russia and the Eastern Standard Time so you'll be seeing the sun rise for some of these.  Or at least setting your DVR.  All times listed are Eastern (sorry to those on the West Coast or our friends overseas).

The puck will officially drop on Wednesday, February 12th at 12:00pm Eastern (9:00pm in Sochi) and run through Sunday, February 23rd with the Gold Medal Game at 7:00am Eastern.  Below your full listing of dates, times, and channel listings.  For our Canadian friends all games can be found on the CBC family of networks.  Channel listings can be found here and will be listed second.
