A quick World Championship semifinal programming note

For those of you who are up at what us night owls call "bedtime":

Gustav Nyquist and Sweden will battle Russia in the World Championships' Quarterfinals today at 7:45 AM EDT. NBCSN's Live Extra website will stream the game in the U.S., and TSN will air the game in Canada;

And Jakub Kindl's Czechs will battle Finland in the other Quarterfinal at 11:45 AM EDT. That game will air on NBCSN and TSN. Edit/update: that game will air on tape delay at 1 PM on NBCSN, but will be shown live on TSN.

The winners of today's games will face off against each other in the Gold Medal game on Sunday (2 PM EDT start on NBCSN and TSN); the teams who are unable to prevail today will battle each other in the Bronze Medal game on Sunday (9:30 AM EDT start on NBCSN's Live Extra website and TSN2).

I'm assuming that the IIHF will also announce Justin Abdelkader's suspension today; his hit on Vladimir Sobotka will probably yield at least 2 or 3 games' worth of sitting on the bench should Team USA pick him to play in another international tournament. iSport.cz's Zdenek Janda at least has good news about Sobotka's condition:

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
