Winter Olympics Hockey Expert Picks

By Chris Peters | Hockey Writer

CBSSports.com Eye on Hockey staff Brian Stubits, Chris Peters and Andrew DeWitt make their predictions for the Olympic hockey tournament in Sochi, Russia.

Canada took home the gold medal the last time on home ice in Vancouver topping the United States in overtime on Sidney Crosby's goal. But the last time the games were held on the Olympic-sized ice in Turin, Italy, both Canada and the United States failed to medal with Sweden winning gold.

The winner of each group and one second place team automatically advance to the quarterfinals. The other teams will play a qualification round to make it into the knockout stage of the tournament.
