Yesterday was a rather big day for Canada. Kristina Groves earned her 2nd medal of the games for Canada by getting silver in the ladies' speed skating. This was quickly overshadowed, however, by the disappointing performance of a certain Team Canada hockey team. I will not go into detail about the game, mainly because I didn't get to watch it until the replay was on CTV this morning......
Anyways, today is a good day for Canada to pick up the pace. We have Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir who participate in the Free Dance tonight, currently ranked in 1st after the first 2 dances, and could possibly win gold tonight. Also, Canada's good hockey team takes on Finland in the semifinals for women's hockey. Schedule after the jump, check out vancouver2010.com and ctvolympics.ca for tons of Canadian coverage.
