    The U.S. men's hockey team faces its familiar Olympic rival, Canada, in a semifinal match-up that will advance the victor to Saturday's bronze medal game.

The winner of Friday's game will play either Sweden or Finland, depending on the outcome of their semifinal match.

    Meanwhile, freestyle skiing wraps up with women's ski cross, while American Mikaela Shiffrin goes for the gold in women's slalom.
