There's only one thing that could allow me to be okay with the Dallas Stars season taking a haitus... and that's Olympic Hockey. You've never seen an athlete give everything he has until you see them play for his (or her) country.
Need more convincing? Just watch this movie.
It even uses the original 1980 Lake Placid call by Al Michaels himself.

Need more convincing? Just watch last the Olympics (Vancouver 2010) Gold Medal game between Canada and USA. One of the greatest Olympic hockey games of all time.
So make sure you turn on those DVRs and watch you some Sochi Olympic Hockey.
