How to Watch Ice Hockey

The U.S. women’s hockey team will battle their biggest rival, Canada, in the gold-medal final at the 2022 Winter Olympics. It will be the sixth time in seven Winter Olympics that Canada and the U.S. will meet in the gold medal match. Canada owns a 3-2 record over the Americans in those pivotal games.

Hilary Knight, a native of Palo Alto, Calif,, is the most experienced player on this year's women's Olympic team. She's competed at every Winter Olympics since 2010, including in 2018 when the U.S. women won their first Olympic hockey title in 20 years.

Watch coverage of the gold medal match on NBC Wednesday night in primetime.

How to Watch Freestyle Skiing

One of the best freestyle skiers in the world is David Wise. Born and raised in Reno, he skis and trains in Tahoe. The two-time gold medalist is not taking anything for granted, as he looks to qualify and advance for a chance to three-peat in Freeski Halfpipe.

Another NorCal athlete to watch for tonight is Brita Sigourney. The Carmel, Calif. native won bronze in the Women's Freeski Halfpipe in 2018 and is looking to get back on the podium.

David Wise has won two Olympic gold medals in the ski halfpipe. So we asked him to explain his sport with Legos.

How to Watch Alpine Skiing

Shiffrin's final chance for an individual medal at the 2022 Games will come when she competes in the combined event, having won silver in the discipline during the 2018 Games.
