I'm pretty sure the top three most watched Olympic Hockey games in the US were in 1980, 2002, and 2010. Those three were in North America.
This is really it. I believe Sochi is 10 hours ahead of the ETZ. So, a game starting at 8pm over there is going to be live here at 10am. People will watch on weekends, but that is about it.
