There are a number of events that immediately jump off the schedule, including the bronze-medal hockey game between the United States and Finland.

Both countries experienced heartbreaking losses in the semifinals, with the Americans falling 1-0 to Canada and Finland losing 2-1 to Sweden. Whichever team can come out with the right mindset and establish the pace of the game early will be at an immediate advantage.

Elsewhere, American Steve Holcomb will look to win consecutive gold medals in the four-man bobsled after taking home the title at the 2010 Games in Vancouver. He already has a bronze from the two-man competition, but he will be dealing with a calf strain that he discussed with reporters in comments passed along by Jim Caple of

What sucks is that when you get in the sled, you still have a minute to go. You can't just get out and go, Owwwww! You sit there and try to focus on the drive and all you can think about is that your leg hurts…It's four years to get to this point. I'm not going to be stopped by a little calf muscle.

On the ski slopes, American Ted Ligety will try to add another gold medal to his Sochi haul in the men’s slalom after winning the title in giant slalom. The United States alpine ski team got off to a relatively slow start, but after Ligety’s gold and Mikaela Shiffrin’s gold medal in the women’s slalom, things are looking much better.

It can’t look any better for a team than it has for the Netherlands’ speedskating bunch in Sochi.

The Dutch have stayed near the top of the medal count throughout the Olympics on the back of their speedskating production alone, and will have two more chances to add to their total on Day 15 with the team pursuit competitions.

There promises to be plenty of thrilling action throughout the day in Sochi.
