NBC- Hockey Fans Need Some Clarification

Team USA is scheduled to face Team Switzerland at 3:00pm ET Wednesday on NBC, but the NBC TV schedule only has a only a two hour time frame for the game.

What hockey fans need to know from NBC is this- Will you carry the game until conclusion on NBC or when the clock strikes 5:00pm ET, will you be shifting the game to one of the other NBC stations?

You see, people need to set their DVR before they go to work in the morning and would like an answer they can trust.  I’ve received over 50 emails today on this topic and would appreciate an answer.

If any KK member or guest has heard anything, please leave a comment below.

I would think it would be safe to assume NBC would carry the game in full, but….

update 2/24/10 at 9:22am, via Puck the Media,

A representative from NBC told Puck the Media last night that the game will be aired in it’s entirety.  I worded the question specifically to include potential overtime and shootouts.  So our long, national nightmare is over.
