NBC Sports Network and Universal Sports Network are slated to broadcast 4 games between the U.S. Women’s National Team and Canada’s women’s team this month, beginning tonight with a game in Calgary. The games will highlight the growing rivalry between the two countries as they meet for their last matches before facing off at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi this February.

Each network will air two games. NBCSN will broadcast the games on American soil, while the remaining two games taking place in Canada can be seen on Universal Sports Network. The United States games (taking place on Dec. 20 in Grand Forks, N.D., and Dec. 28 in St. Paul, Minn.) are part of the USWNT “Bring on the World Tour,” which seeks to prepare Team USA for their Olympic run. Team Canada’s home games will take place on Dec. 12 (tonight!) in Calgary, Alberta, and Dec. 30 in Toronto, Ontario.

Both US games will also be streamed live to desktops, mobile devices and tablets via NBC Sports Live Extra, while the Canadian games will stream on UniversalSports.com and on the Universal Sports Live App.

Born in the “non-traditional” hockey market of South Florida, Elizabeth (Beth) quickly grew to love the sport at a very young age after her Buffalo-bred family introduced her to the Sabres. High school friends who didn’t care about hockey couldn't understand her withdrawals during the 2004-05 lockout, but college would bring a hockey loving boyfriend (and best friend) to whom she could finally relate. A South Florida native himself, and an avid Florida Panthers fan, he got her into the home team. Together they work for their college hockey club (the FAU Owls), broadcasting games. Beth is a huge USA Hockey fan and hopes to see them win Olympic gold in her lifetime. Between her 2 favorite NHL teams, her college squad, and USA Hockey, it's hard to tell which team she loves most, but she is passionate about them all.
