PyeongChang medal winners Mikaela Shiffrin (gold in giant slalom) and Lindsey Vonn (bronze in yesterday's downhill) headline tonight's primetime coverage live across all time zones on NBC begins at 8 p.m. ET. Shiffrin and Vonn are expected to contend for medals in the women's super combined. The downhill run will take place in primetime, with the slalom run airing in "Primetime Plus," beginning at 11:35 p.m.
Live at 10:45 p.m. on NBCSN, Team USA continues its rivalry in women's ice hockey in the gold medal game against Team Canada. Two-time Olympic silver medalist Hilary Knight, captain Meghan Duggan, and 2017 world championship MVP Brianna Decker look to avenge a 3-2 overtime loss to Canada at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Canada defeated the U.S. earlier in the Olympic tournament, 2-1.
The U.S. women's hockey team goes for its first Olympic gold medal since the inaugural tournament in 1998. Tonight's game marks the third straight Winter Olympics Team USA and Canada will clash in the women's hockey gold medal game, and the fifth time in six Winter Olympics overall. The U.S. won the first women's hockey gold medal in 1998, but Canada has won the past four, including a 3-2 overtime win over the U.S. in Sochi.
Play-by-play commentator Kenny Albert is slated to call the action from Gangneung Hockey Centre in Gangneung, South Korea, alongside analyst and 1998 Olympic gold medalist AJ Mleczko and "Inside-the-Glass" analyst Pierre McGuire.
Both clubs advanced to the gold medal game following 5-0 victories in the semifinals. The Americans defeated Finland, led by two goals by Dani Cameranesi and a shutout by goaltender Maddie Rooney. Canada defeated the Olympic Athletes from Russia, as Jennifer Wakefield scored twice and Shannon Szabados stopped all 14 shots she faced. The two teams faced off in the preliminary round in PyeongChang, with Canada edging Team USA 2-1.
