Hockey world primed for \'Super Sunday\'
The NHL\'s biggest stars and international hockey\'s greatest rivalries will be on a global display Sunday when the preliminary round of men\'s ice hockey at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver culminates with an exciting tripleheader.
Just call it Super Sunday.

The NHL's biggest stars and international hockey's greatest rivalries will be on a global display Sunday when the preliminary round of men's ice hockey at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver culminates with an exciting tripleheader.

With matchups for the Olympic tournament playoffs at stake, the Czech Republic takes on Russia at 3 p.m., ET; Canada faces the United States at 7:40 p.m., ET and Finland battles Sweden at midnight, ET.

From the moment the Olympic men's hockey schedule was released months ago, hockey fans have circled this date -- Super Sunday -- as must-see TV.

"I'm anticipating one of the best atmospheres I've been in," said Team USA coach Ron Wilson. "Here, it's going to be on every TV in Canada and a good number in America. Anyone who is a hockey fan will be watching."

In an added twist that showcases the competitiveness of international hockey at the top level, Sunday's matchups represent the three Olympic gold medal finals since NHL players made their Olympic debut in Nagano, Japan in 1998.
