Default Day 11 (PM of Monday Feb 19 - AM of Tuesday Feb 20)

Starting at 17:05 Kevin Koe’s rink looks to bounce back in a match against Japan that I believe will be on Sportsnet and also covered in parts on CBC.

At 18:00 the Free Dance portion of the Ice Dancing is scheduled to begin. Piper Giller and Paul Poirier will be the 11th pair to skate, Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje will go 13th. The main event will be Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, the greatest ice dancers of all time, skating 20th in an attempt to win another Gold Medal. This should be on TSN 1, 3, & 4, as well as partially covered on CBC.

At 18:30 the Final of the Women’s Halfpipe in Freestyle Skiing will begin. Rosalind Groenewoud will be the 2nd skier to compete, Cassie Sharpe as the highest qualifier will be the 12th and final skier. I believe that this will be on TSN2.

In Men’s Hockey at 20:10 Slovakia faces the USA with a Quarter-Final matchup against the Czech Republic on the line.

Rachel Homan’s rink faces off against China at 22:05. I think this is going to end up being on TSN 1, 3, 4, & 5.

At 00:40 Norway takes on Slovenia in Men’s Hockey with the winner facing off against Russia in the Quarter-Final. This may be on CBC.

At 03:00 in Nordic Combined the Individual Large Hill portion of the event begins, no Canadians in this event. The Cross Country portion is scheduled to start at 05:45.

Also at 03:00 in Short Track Speed Skating on CBC the heats for the Women’s 1000m are scheduled to begin. Valerie Maltais will race in Heat 4, Marianne St-Gelais will be in Heat 7, and Kim Boutin will be in the 8th and final heat.

At 03:45 the Heats for the Men’s 500m in Short Track will begin. Recent Gold Medalist Samuel Girard will compete in Heat 2 trying to continue his already successful Olympics. Charles Hamelin will skate in Heat 4. This event should also be on CBC.

At 04:15 the Mixed Relay in Biathlon will begin. Canada’s team will compete in this grueling 2x6km Women, 2x7.5km Men’s Event.

Beginning at 04:23 the Finals for the Women’s 3000m Relay in Short Track will begin and it seems like this will be on CBC. Canada will be in the A Final, racing for a medal against teams from China, Italy, and the hosts from South Korea.

Starting at 04:50 is the first run in the Women’s Bobsleigh. Calgary’s Kaillie Humphries is already one of Canada’s greatest athletes and is the two-time defending Gold Medalist in this event, working the brakes in the same sled is Phylicia George making her Olympic games debut. George competed in 100m Hurdles in London and Rio and in the 4x100m Relay in Rio. Alysia Rissling competes in her Olympic debut with two-time Gold Medalist Heather Moyse. Christine De Bruin of Stony Plain and Melissa Lotholz of Barrhead make their Olympic debuts. I think that this will be covered on CBC and/or Sportsnet 1. The second run is scheduled for 06:00.

At 05:10 Finland plays South Korea in Men’s Hockey with the winner earning a date with Canada in the Quarter-Final I believe that this game will be on TSN. Also at this time German takes on Switzerland with Sweden awaiting the winner.

After a 4 and zero start, Koe is essentially in the same position as Homan. One more loss and it could be over.

Exactly - Koe and Homan are charting literal opposite paths. Luckily for her, their rink is peaking at the right time.

Koe's rink has plenty of skill and I still see them as much more medal favorites than Homan, who has to deal with equally skilled teams and Swedish and Korean rinks that are on fire.

Any guess on what time the final group/Virtue and Moir will take the ice tonight? The event starts at 6pm MST by the looks of it, but they go last. Maybe 730 would be a safe guess for the final flight?

CBC just put up the final two flights would start at 7:45. So a little more than 45 min per flight so 8:30 would likely be close.

As an aside why is bobsled only timed down to hundredths of seconds and 140km/h that's about 40cm per hundredth

He was there in men's snowboard half pipe or slope style. I love how they continue to fail to avoid him and then do cutaways.

I totally forgot to put it in earlier but at 21:15 the qualification will begin in the Men's Halfpipe in Freestyle Skiing. Sochi Silver Medalist Mike Riddle of Edmonton will be the second skier. Simon D'Artois makes his Olympic debut as the 7th skier, and Calgary's Noah Bowman will ski 10th trying to improve on his 5th place finish in Sochi. This should be on Sportsnet 1.

It’s amazing how relaxed and casual she looks going down the pipe. Makes it look effortless.

Great score, now she can really go for it.

She seemed to get so much more air than anyone else. That's going to be a tough number

Pretty much only the 2 Americans and the French that could beat her the rest don't have the air or the tricks.
