Canada vs. Austria: Preview and Prediction for 2014 Olympic Hockey Game
Julio Cortez/Associated Press

Welcome back to the Olympics, Austria. Your first game since 2002 was an 8-4 loss to Finland and now you get to take another step up in class and face Team Canada.

The Austrians did not qualify for the Olympics in 2006 or 2010 and their best finish in the past 26 years was ninth at the 1988 Olympics in Calgary. Thomas Vanek, Michael Grabner and Michael Raffl are the only three NHL players on Austria.

This should be a nice tune-up game for the Canadians, the clear favorites in Group B. 

Here's all the viewing information, potential lineups and what to expect in what should be a very one-sided matchup.
