Russia hopes to continue to build momentum toward a hopeful medal run as they face Japan in women’s ice hockey, beginning at 10 a.m. ET.


Russia started slowly in its first women’s Olympic game before ramping things up by scoring all four of their goals in the third period, beating Germany 4-1. In a way, a loss was almost a win for Japan, which only lost to Sweden 1-0 in its opener.

These two programs are in very different phases of their development, so this could be a decent “measuring stick” game for both teams, even if Russia wins as expected.

    FYI I’m watching Women Hockey (japan/russia) and it is hard to hear the commentary over the crowd noise.

      I would say it’s the Russian fans cheering for the hometown gals, and it is, but not alone. The Sweden/Japan game was just as loud, and there were flags and “Smile Japan” banners everywhere. Their fans travel well. It’s great to see and hear.
