Sport: Hockey
Time: 4:10 am PT / 7:10 am ET

Without NHL participation this year, this has proved to be a plucky group representing Canada on the world stage. Their only blemish so far is a shootout loss to the Czech Republic.

Standing in Canada’s way is Germany, a surprise semi-finalist after upsetting Sweden in the semis.

The winner of this game will take on the winner of the other semi-final, between Russia (OAR) and the Czech Republic (11:40 pm PT / 2:40 am ET). The gold medal game is on Saturday at 8:10 pm PT / 11:10 pm ET.

Medals will be awarded after the women’s free skate and Canada has two skaters in contention for a medal. Kaetlyn Osmond is third after the short program while Gabrielle Daleman sits seventh.

Both Osmond and Daleman stood on the podium last year, so expectations are high.

Women’s ski cross final

Sport: Freestyle skiing
Time: 6:20 pm PT / 9:20 pm ET

Four Canadians are in the field for women’s ski cross, including the defending Olympic champion Marielle Thompson. Brittany Phelan, India Sherret, and Kelsey Serwa are in the mix as well.

Speed skating men’s 1,000-metre final

Sport: Long track speed skating
Time: 2 am PT / 5 am ET

Keep an eye on the oval, as Canada’s Vincent de Haitre – the third-ranked skater in this event – goes for a spot on the podium. Laurent Dubreuil and Alexandre St-Jean also have a shot as well.

Men’s curling bronze medal game

Sport: Curling
Time: 10:35 pm PT / 1:35 am ET

It’s not the medal Kevin Koe and the Canadian men’s curling team wanted to play for, but they will look for a spot on the podium in the bronze medal game against Switzerland.
