Saturday’s Olympics men’s hockey game between Russia and the U.S.A. notched a best-ever streaming record for NBC Sports, the network announced today. The match, which went to an eight-round shootout and resulted in a win for the American squad, was live-streamed by nearly 600K users on NBCOlympics.com and NBC‘s Sports Live Extra app for a total of 14.7 million minutes of consumption. That beats streaming numbers for the Vancouver Olympics and this year’s NHL Stanley Cup Final. Due to popular demand, NBC will air portions of the game tonight in primetime with Al Michaels and Mike “Doc” Emrick joining Meredith Vieira at the analyst desk. The game will then air in full Sunday on NBCSN at 4:30 PM ET.
