Winter Olympics Day 13 Results: USA And Canada Win In Men's Hockey Quarters, Vonn Breaks Finger

Men's Hockey quarterfinals took center stage Wednesday at the Olympics. Team USA got two goals from Zach Parise in a 2-0 win over Switzerland, America's first shutout since the 2002 games. Next up for the Americans: the winner of Finland-Czech Republic. Good news, by the way: that U.S. game on Friday will be shown live, in ALL time zones.

In the second quarterfinal, Canada reasserted their dominance with a dismantling of Russia, 7-3. The host country gets the winner of Sweden-Slovakia in the semifinals on Friday.

Women's Alpine Skiing brought with it some disastrous results on Wednesday in the Giant Slalom. First, Lindsey Vonn crashed hard, breaking her right pinkie and eliminating her from contention. As a result of her fall, teammate Julia Mancuso, who was next on the course, had her first run flagged and was forced to go back to the top and start over. The restart clearly affected her, because she is currently in 18th place after the first run. The second run was postponed to Thursday because of heavy fog.

The United States won a couple of bronze medals Wednesday night, in both Women's Bobsled and Women's Short Track 3000m relay. In bobsled, the USA 2 sled finished third behind a pair of Canadian teams, while in Short Track, the U.S. team was awarded bronze after the South Korean team was disqualified.

In the Men's Curling round robin tiebreaker, Sweden upset Great Britain in the 11th end, 7-6. They'll move on to the Curling semifinals, where no one wants to face Canada.

In crazy, gravity-defying sports, Australian Lydia Lassila ("The Flying Kangaroo" -- is that really her nickname?) took home gold in Women's Aerials, edging out a pair of Chinese skiers who took silver and bronze.

Elsewhere in Vancouver on Day 13: Sweden won their fourth gold medal of the games when they finished first in the Men's Cross-Country 4x10 km Relay ... Martina Sablikova of the Czech Republic won Women's Speed Skating 5000m, her second gold of the Vancouver Olympics ... Holland's Sven Kramer, the speed skater who infamously skated in the wrong lane on Tuesday, announced today he was sticking the coach who made the mistake.
