Olympic gold medal hockey game will be live in all U.S. time zones

NBC confirmed what most U.S. hockey fans hoped.

The Olympic gold medal game that will almost certainly feature the U.S. (up 6-0 over Finland in the third period Friday) will be telecast live in all U.S. time zones Sunday. The game (which will have as the other finalist the winner of Friday's game between Canada and Slovakia) begins at noon PST.

On NBC's original Olympic schedule, the game was slated to be tape-delayed until 3 p.m. PST and live only in the Eastern and Central time zones.
