2010 Olympics open thread: Day 13

Big day today for Canada, and it basically boils down to one event: The men's hockey team takes on Russia in the quarter-finals. It was expected to be a gold-medal game, but instead one of the two most highly-touted teams will finish no better than fourth in the men's hockey tournament.

Women's bobsleigh also gets into the medal-giving, and Canada's goes into the third run of four in the lead. Medals will also be dished out for ladies' giant slalom, men's 4x10km cross-country skiing, ladies' aerials freestyle skiing, short-track speed skating, and the ladies' 5000m (!) speed skating.

Full schedule after the jump, stick around through the day and offer your thoughts in the live thread.
