Sochi Day 16: What to Watch

Tune in for bobsledder Steven Holcomb's 4-man race, the gold medal hockey game and the closing ceremony

The curtains close on the Winter Games in Sochi Sunday with a closing ceremony at 11:30 a.m. ET. But first, Canada takes on Sweden in the gold medal men's hockey game, while American Steven Holcomb attempts to defend his Olympic title in the four-man race.

Here are the details about what to watch on the 16th and final day of competition.

12:30 a.m. ET: Catch up on Saturday's highlights with NBC's late-night recap of the figure skating gala. Keep watching at 1:30 a.m. ET to catch (or re-watch) men's slalom, speeding skating team pursuit, men's parallel slalom snowboarding, and first two runs of the men's four-man bobsled race, which concludes today.

2 a.m. ET: The first event of the day is one of the most grueling of the Olympic Games -- the men's cross-country 50k mass start. Norway and Russia have the top contenders in this 31-mile race on skis. Tune in here.

4 a.m. ET: America's last race of the Games is the four-man bobsled, where defending gold medalist Steven Holcomb and his team will try for one last Sochi medal. After Saturday's two runs, the U.S. is in fourth place behind Russia, Latvia and Germany. Watch the final two runs live here or on the NBC Sports Network. 

7 a.m. ET: USA's top hockey rival, Canada, takes on Sweden in the men's gold medal game. The same two teams competed for the gold in the 1994 Lillehammer Games. Watch live here or on NBC.

11 a.m. ET: Sochi organizers pass the Olympic flag to their successors from Pyeongyang at a closing ceremony that officially concludes the Sochi Games. The details of the event have been kept under wraps though organizers, reportedly, will take another stab at the snowflake-Olympic ring pyrotechnic display that got botched during the opening ceremony.
