USA women's hockey dominates
We've mentioned it time and time again since the tournament started, but it's really a two-team race in women's hockey between the United States and Canada. The two will battle for the first time on Wednesday, but as they face off against similar opponents, can we get clues into where each team stands?
Canada beat Switzerland 5-0 in their opening game. It took the USA just 20 minutes to match that same output, as they scored five times in the first period en route to a huge 9-0 win. Amanda Kessel, who might be better at hockey than her brother Phil, had a hat trick.
We'll see if performance vs. Switzerland is a barometer for the two powerhouses when they face off in two days.
Julia Mancuso settles for bronze
Nevada native Julia Mancuso put together an insane downhill run early Monday, giving her a nearly half second lead over Switzerland's Laura Gut heading into the second portion of the super combined, the slalom.
Gut failed to finish in the slalom portion, but Germany's Maria Hoefl-Riesch, the defending gold medalist, made up the ground in the second leg and went on to repeat as champion.
Short track speed skating: pretty great
Canada's Charles Hamelin made an insane third-to-first move in the final laps of the men's 1500m short track final, leap frogging his way to a gold medal. USA's J.R. Celski finished fourth in the event behind Tianyu Han of China, who took silver, and Victor An, who took bronze.
In the semifinals of the ladies' 3000m team relay -- that's the one where 1,000 people are on the ice at once and they push each other's butts -- Korea, Canada, China and Italy advanced to the final.
Curling, curling, curling
