Winter Olympic Viewer's Guide: Monday, Feb. 17
Here's what to look out for in the Olympics Monday.
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.
Two semifinal women's hockey games headline a slate along with the mixed figure skating final.
Don't forget that a lot of these events will be repackaged and shown in the prime time NBC slot so if you miss the big events live, you'll be able to see them later.
-- Denotes a medal event
2 a.m. -- Men's Biathlon 15km Mass Start, NBCOlympics.com: Originally scheduled for Sunday evening in Sochi, the event was rescheduled due to foggy conditions. France's Martin Fourcade will be in search of his third gold medal of the Games.
2 a.m. -- Men's Snowboard Cross, NBCOlympics.com: The action kicks off early with the finals scheduled for just after 5 a.m. ET. Americans Nick Baumgartner and Nate Holland should be in contention for a medal. Holland has earned eight medals at the X Games, but he has yet to set foot on an Olympic podium. Trevor Jacob, 20, is another intriguing contender.
