NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Primetime):


  • Men’s Figure Skating - Short Program: Three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada remains the favorite for Olympic gold, but after winning each of his consecutive world titles by smaller and smaller margins, it appears that the rest of the men’s field is catching up with the 23-year-old from Toronto. The men’s competition gets underway with the short program, where it is now almost necessary to attempt a quad jump - figure skating’s most difficult element - to be competitive.
  • Men’s Freestyle Skiing - Slopestyle Gold Medal Final: This new Olympic event can be difficult to predict, but the U.S. is loaded with talent. Nick Goepper, a 19-year-old from a small Indiana farm town, leads the deep crop of skiers after collecting wins at several recent major events.
  • Women’s Speed Skating - 1000m Gold Medal Final: Training partners and roommates Heather Richardson and Brittany Bowe - both former inline skaters - will likely be each other’s toughest competition as they arrive at the Sochi Games ranked 1-2 in this event. A former college basketball standout in her home state of Florida, Bowe was inspired to try speed skating when she watched Richardson make her Olympic debut in Vancouver.
  • Women’s Skeleton - Competition: It’s been a long and winding road for Noelle Pikus-Pace, a Utah mother of two who finished fourth in Vancouver then retired from the sport. But the 31-year-old made her triumphant return in 2012 and quickly ascended the ranks to become a top contender in Sochi.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Daytime):


  • Men’s Biathlon - 20km Individual Gold Medal Final: Tim Burke won silver the 20km individual at 2013 Worlds, becoming the first U.S. biathlete to reach the podium at the event since 1987 (and just the second ever). In Sochi, the New York native will be gunning for the first U.S. Olympic biathlon medal as he makes his third appearance at the Games.
  • Luge - Team Relay Gold Medal Final Runs: The fastest competitors from each nation will join forces in the team relay, a new event in Sochi that measures time continuously as three sleds from each team go down the track one after the other. The Americans attempt to usurp traditional luge powers, such as Germany and Italy.

NBC HIGHLIGHTS (Late Night):


  • Women’s Short Track - 500m Gold Medal Final: In short track, top American Aly Dudek, who won bronze in the relay in Vancouver, competes in her signature event, the four-and-a-half-lap 500m. She’ll likely have to contend with China’s most decorated Winter Olympian, Wang Meng, who won this event at the past two Games.
  • Men’s Short Track - 5000m Relay Competition: J.R. Celski looks to lead the American men into the final of the 5000m relay. With Celski on the team in Vancouver, the U.S. won bronze for the second straight Olympics, and they will be looking to upgrade to gold after winning two of the four World Cup events this season.

NBCSN HIGHLIGHTS:


  • Men’s Hockey - USA vs. Slovakia: On the heels of their captivating run to a silver medal in Vancouver, the U.S. men begin the Sochi tournament LIVE against Slovakia, which surprised with a fourth-place finish four years ago.

  • Women’s Skeleton - Competition: It’s been a long and winding road for Noelle Pikus-Pace, a Utah mother of two who finished fourth in Vancouver then retired from the sport. But the 31-year-old made her triumphant return in 2012 and quickly ascended the ranks to become a top contender in Sochi.

MSNBC HIGHLIGHTS:


  • Men’s Hockey - Russia vs. Slovenia: The host begins its Olympic run LIVE against Olympic newcomer Slovenia. Led by Washington Capitals star Alex Ovechkin, last year’s NHL MVP, Russia is under immense pressure to deliver gold in front of its hockey-mad home fans. After the Soviet Union and the Unified Team won eight of the 10 men’s Olympic tournaments from 1956-92, Russia has been unable to win gold in its five appearances.
  • Men’s Curling: Two-time Olympian John Shuster has the Olympic experience required to guide the U.S. team through a deep men’s field that includes favorites Canada, Sweden and Great Britain. The 31-year-old Minnesota native was part of the 2006 Olympic team that collected the first U.S. Olympic curling medal and then led the Americans in Vancouver.
