What TV channel is USA vs. Austria on? Schedule, time for 2021 World Juniors game

Less than 24 hours after battling it out with their Russian rivals, the Americans are right back on the ice at Rogers Place. On Boxing Day they’ll cap off the night’s triple-set of games with a match-up against the Austrians.

This one will definitely not have the same fanfare, intrigue and razzle-dazzle as the Christmas Day affair — and the Americans may be happy about that. The team came out and was handed a 5-3 loss by the Russians in a meeting of the top-two contenders in Group B. It’s not a great way to start the tournament — although, a silver lining is they did mount a comeback when down 4-1 late in the third — but there’s still plenty of time to get back on track and that begins Saturday night.

Will it be the easiest match-up? No. Austria is well rested; however, they do not have the talent in comparison to the Americans. What the Austrians do have, though, is a star in Wild prospect Marco Rossi. He’s an offensive threat every time he’s on the ice and could wreak havoc on the U.S. defense.

Here is how to catch the 2021 IIHF World Juniors Group B meeting between the U.S. and Austria.
