The thing is the Winter Olympics is an NBC deal so ESPN won't be showing anything other than highlights. Thus they will be showing it on NBC, CNBC, and MSNBC, and whatever other channels NBC has under it's umbrella. Given it is the Olympics I'd expect they will be showing at least some of it but there is no way to say absolutely yes or no.

Frankly I think ice hockey is one sport that translates poorly to TV, unlike football or basketball which can be better on TV than in person.
