Olympic TV coverage vs NHL Games

I remember for the Vancouver Olympics they had 3 games a day in the round robin with starts times of noon, 4:30 pm and 9:00 pm. The Gold Medal game started around noon. If were have similar times in Korea that would be 10:00 pm, 6:30 and 11:00 am in the EST zone.

If this is the case many Olympic hockey game would go head to head against west coast NHL games. They could also move the start time earlier to have it go against games in the other time zones.

Given that NBC and CBC/Sportsnet are covering both the NHL and the Olympics, how will this affect NHL coverage and ratings?
