PITTSBURGH - Penguins teammates will take on each other in the USA versus Russia Olympics hockey game on Saturday.

It has almost got the feel of the 1980 Miracle on Ice showdown, said sports anchor Alby Oxenreiter.  This time, it’s on Russia's home ice.

The game will feature Dan Bylsma, Brooks Orpik and Paul Martin against superstar Evgeni Malkin.

“Technically speaking we're the home team for that game.  It’s certainly not going to feel like it.  I anticipate it being a game like no other,” said Bylsma.

“It’s for sure not a friendly atmosphere,” said Malkin.

Coverage begins at 7 a.m. on the NBC Sports Network.  If you’re not near a television, you can watch our livestream on WPXI.com.
