yes the mens team got more coverage because they are the more popular team with the public.
The womens team has trouble getting recognition because MOST major sports journalists wont take womens sports seriously compared to mens, and its easy to see why when the average mens player is making multi-million dollar salaries a season, where as the women dont even have a league that pays salaries yet.
It sucks, but its just the nature of the sport. Mens hockey will always be more popular than womens hockey, thus they will get more coverage.
Women's hockey just isn't as competative as men's. Its always USA vs Canada and will be for a few years longer. Men's hockey, for starters more people watch the games and know the players. Furthermore, there are more men playing hockey then women so there are more teams in the running for gold so it is that much more interesting.
