2:30 p.m.

UNITED STATES vs. FINLAND – Women’s Hockey

Canada has already put the wraps on its perfect prelim, finishing with 41 goals in three wins (18-0, 10-1, 13-1). First place is on the line when the Americans take on the Finns, and neither team wants to come out on the short end – the loser will face Canada and its high-octane offence in next Monday’s semifinals. The Americans have been on an offensive roll of their own, racking up 25 goals in their opening two wins – over China and Russia – while allowing just one.

4:30 p.m.

CANADA vs. SWITZERLAND – Men’s Hockey
After an impressive tournament-opening 8-0 win over Norway on Tuesday, Canada’s Men’s Olympic Team looks to run its preliminary round record to 2-0 when it faces the Swiss, who enter the game winless at 0-1 after an opening loss to the United States. Canada is 7-1 against the Swiss at the Olympics, but the one loss came in the last meeting – Martin Gerber earned the shutout and Canadian-born Paul Dipietro scored both goals as Switzerland blanked Canada 2-0 in Turin in 2006.  

7 p.m.

CENTRE ICE WITH CHRISTINE SIMPSON

Veteran broadcaster and hockey geek extraordinaire Christine Simpson sits down for intimate, 1-on-1 interviews with all the hockey greats who will be visiting Vancouver for the Games, plus surprise guests and celebrities. You never know who's going to show up at Centre Ice!

8 p.m.

VICTORY CEREMONIES

The Canadian run to the medal podium continues Thursday night as Marianne St-Gelais receives the silver medal she earned in the Women’s 500 m short-track speed skating competition on Wednesday – St-Gelais’ 20th birthday. More medals could be on the way Thursday, both on the ice at Richmond Olympic Oval and in the snowboard halfpipe on Cypress Mountain.

10 p.m.

GEORGE CANYON

You can go ahead and just dance to the music of George Canyon, if that’s what you want. He’s a country neo-traditionalist par excellence, producing music situated somewhere between the bright and studio-tooled Nashville ideal and something a little older, with a voice that can soar with emotion or linger in a heavy bottom-end that feels like a kick in the chest from a faith healer. It’s instant. When you see the man, with piercing eyes that hang above his square jaw, the star appeal becomes even more obvious, and you remember all those achievements – the string of hits, a shelf-full of Junos and Canadian Country Music Awards, not to mention his rocket-ride to American fame on Nashville Star , and the subsequent blockbuster albums One Good Friend, and Somebody Wrote Love.

All Day

TEAM CANADA ALUMNI

Throughout the Games, various Team Canada alumni will be making appearances at Molson Canadian Hockey House. Here’s who is going to be on hand today:

Grant Fuhr

One of the greatest goaltenders of his generation, Fuhr was a part of all five Stanley Cup championships won by the Edmonton Oilers during their dynasty during the 1980s, and earned a Vezina Trophy as the NHL’s top goaltender in 1988. He was a three-time member of Team Canada, winning the 19 Canada Cups and taking silver at the 1989 IIHF World Championship. Fuhr was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2003.

Peter Mahovlich

A four-time Stanley Cup champion with the Montreal Canadiens, ‘Little M’ wore the red and white of Team Canada just twice, but they were two memorable moments. Mahovlich was part of the original Team Canada in the 1972 Summit Series, scoring a shorthanded goal in Game 2 that is still talked about today, and helped Canada win the inaugural Canada Cup in 1976.

Lanny McDonald

Known almost as much for his mustache as his playing career, McDonald went out of the game on top, scoring his final goal in his final game at the Montreal Forum in Game 6 of the 1989 Stanley Cup Final, leading the Calgary Flames to their lone Cup title. Inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1992, McDonald won the 1976 Canada Cup with Team Canada and also wore the red and white at the 1981 IIHF World Championship in Sweden.

Stan Smyl

A Vancouver hockey icon, ‘The Steamer’ was the first Canuck to have his number retired by the team, and he still works with the Canucks as a senior advisor to the general manager. His Team Canada career included the 1978 IIHF World Junior Championship, where he won a bronze medal on a team led by a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky, and the 1985 IIHF World Championship, where he won silver.
