Well TSN in Canada is covering it so I assume Centre Ice will be using that feed.

Hate to have to break this to you, but the 8:00 am ET game is NOT the US vs Finland game. That game is scheduled to begin at 7:00pm local time (12:00 Noon ET). As the host country, Finland is privileged to have the late game. So, no need to get your lazy butt's out of bed at 8:00am...unless you want to watch Canada beat the Czech's. As it stands, NHL Center Ice is showing the Team Canada vs Czech game, but alas, it does not appear that they can be bothered to air the USA vs Finland game later in the day. If you don't like it, I highly suggest you send the dumbass bums at NHL Center Ice a nasty email....NHL Center Ice (http://www2.nhl.com/nhlhq/feedback/index.html)

WOW.....i'm shocked.....That's good news. For sure. Was a little discouraging for the guys to think nobody back in the USA gives a crap about what they're doing over here....That is so cool. Too bad I can't unsend that nasty little email i sent a little while ago...ooops, my bad....

The game is not tape delayed for Noon EST, it is live at Noon EST. The plan originally was that if Finland was in the semis that they would play the later game.

A quote from that article about the U17s...

"The U.S. has won the gold medal two out of the last three years, including last season when the team did not participate."

They must have been quite good to win it all without showing up.

Bruins - don't worry. If you have Center Ice, it will be there. You should just be happy that you have Center Ice :(

I found! I found...

It's on some strange PPV channel #465 (usually Center Ice 540 - 552).

I hasn't been asked to order it so...I assume it's free!!! :yo: :handclap:

Maybe they are showing it because of my call!!!

P.S. I don't know about ordering and cancelling NHL Center Ice but 1/2 season cost only $106 and worth every penny!

Yeah, when I was watching the Canada/Czech Republic game, I noticed they advertized that as U.S./Finland. That could be bad news.

1-0 USA with 8 minutes left in the third.

American goaltender is the main reason why the Americans still lead. He's had to save his team from numerous serious breakdowns, including a 2-on-0 breakaway, that would have been a goal had the Finn with the puck not been so selfish and passed instead of shooting.

Well..I didn't give up and reading updates on the IIHF page.

I called 2 times to Dish Network reps and complained but they have no idea why it's not on Center Ice. They have no clue..and keep telling me about possible blackouts or something. I know for sure that Center Ice on digital cable has this game.(at least in NY area).

1:00 left. Still 6 on 4.

Finland scores PP goal (Nurmi)

2-1, 59 seconds to go.

US wins 2-1, and earns the right to be destroyed by Canada on Monday. ;)
