Two berths on the U.S. Olympic men's figure skating team are the goal for the 19 skaters returning to the TD Garden ice Sunday for the free-skate portion of the 2014 U.S. Figure Skating Championships.

Jeremy Abbott is the clear leader after a spotless performance in Friday’s short program, leaving a cluster of skaters more than likely vying for second place on the medal podium. Behind him are a collection of surprises and pre-event contenders, including reigning national champion Max Aaron, now in fourth.

Friday's opening session featured standing ovations, collective groans and all things in between, which should provide an interesting pretext for Sunday's finale.
