Four years ago at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Team USA appeared poised to win its first gold in 30 years. It dominated group play, defeated the heavily favored Canadian squad and stormed its way to the gold-medal game.

The only loss the Americans would suffer would be in the final game, as they lost to Canada 3-2 in overtime on Sidney Crosby's goal that eluded goaltender and tournament MVP Ryan Miller.

The U.S. team had to settle for silver in Vancouver, but it has what it takes to win gold in Sochi.

This year's roster features 13 players from the silver-medal squad, a stark contrast to the 2010 team that had just three players with Olympic experience. It will begin its quest for gold when its round-robin schedule begins with a game against Slovakia on Feb. 13. 

This slideshow is designed to make you familiar with Team USA's players, history, strengths, weaknesses and the all-important TV and streaming information. So click through and bookmark this page to reference throughout the tournament.
