Trying to watch the Olympics? Even with NBCOlympics.com now streaming every event live online, the wild array of events can make the viewing experience a bit bewildering.

But we're here to help. Here's our chronological list of the events U.S. Olympic fans should consider watching, and where. All times Eastern and all events are live action unless otherwise noted.

Monday's got a nice assortment of events going down, with plenty of medals on the line. It's not one of the best days, but anything that includes ice hockey, curling and downhill skiing is usually worth at least a glance. Here's what you can find when.

And remember, a lot of these events will be packaged in a delayed production on NBC come Monday night at 8 p.m. ET.

-- Denotes a medal event

5 a.m. ET – USA women's ice hockey, NBC Sports Network: The Red, White and Blue will play against Switzerland in their Group A game of pool play.

5 a.m. ET – USA women's curling vs. Switzerland, USA Network: Get ready for curling talk to come back into your life for the next two weeks.

6 a.m. ET – Women's super-combined downhill skiing, NBCOlympics.com: Julia Mancuso is the most familiar name affiliated with this event for the United States, but she's actually not considered a favorite to medal, despite taking silver at the 2010 Games. Who might? A girl named Mikaela Shiffrin, who's 18 and won the slalom World Cup title last year.

7:15 a.m. ET – Men's 1500m short-track speed skating, NBCOlympics.com: J.R. Celski, who won bronze in Vancouver, is in this event. He won the gold in the world cup in 2013. One of the bigger events for American gold medal chances. Most interesting thing about Celski? He's connected with Macklemore.

1:15 p.m. ET – Women's normal hill individual final, NBCOlympics.com: Still just a couple of teenagers, the United States' Sarah Hendrickson and Japan's Sara Takanashi are the favorites to take the top two spots on the podium in this inaugural Winter Olympic event.
