NBC says the game was the most streamed hockey game in NBC Sports and NBC Olympics history. Due to the popularity of the game, portions will air tonight in primetime on NBC. The full game will air tomorrow on NBCSN beginning at 4:30pmET. Al Michaels and Mike “Doc” Emrick will join Vieira tonight on the primetime show to talk about the game.
