CANADA vs. SWEDEN – Women’s Curling

First place is on the line as a pair of 5-1 teams meet – Canada’s Cheryl Bernard and Sweden’s Annette Norberg skip their respective teams into battle as the round robin winds down and the fight for playoff positioning begins. Canada is coming off its first loss, as it dropped a tight 6-5 decision to China in Sunday’s late draw.

4:30 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!

5 p.m.

CANADA vs. FINLAND – Women’s Hockey Semifinal

The Canadian juggernaut continues its romp through the competition towards its third-consecutive Olympic gold, with only the Finns standing in its way of a gold medal game berth. Canada has outscored its opposition 41-2 through three games, and has two games remaining to break the all-time record of 46 goals in one Olympics, which it set during its run to gold in 2006. The Canadians are 46-0-1 all-time against Finland, and beat the Scandinavians in the semifinal in 20.

7:30 p.m.

VICTORY CEREMONIES

Canada returned to the medal podium on Sunday, as Kristina Groves earned her second medal with a silver in the women’s 1,500m long track speed skating event, adding to the bronze she won one week earlier in the 3,000m. Monday could be a golden day, as Scott Moir and Tessa Virtue lead the ice dance with just one portion of the competition remaining – Monday’s free dance.

8 p.m.

IIHF TRIPLE GOLD CLUB INDUCTION CEREMONY

It is the Triple Crown of professional hockey – the Stanley Cup, Olympics and IIHF World Championship. Only 22 players have won all three, and they will be formally inducted into the IIHF Triple Gold Club on Monday night at MCHH. Canada will be well represented, with five players earning induction: Rob Blake, Joe Sakic, Brendan Shanahan, Scott Niedermayer and Chris Pronger. All 22 members of the IIHF Triple Gold Club will be present for the ceremony.

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:

Yvan Cournoyer

‘The Roadrunner’ won a remarkable 10 Stanley Cups during his illustrious NHL career, second only to former Habs teammate Henri Richard’s 11, and was a 1982 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee. Cournoyer only represented Canada on one occasion, but was front and centre for the greatest moment in Canadian hockey history when he assisted on ‘The Goal,’ Paul Henderson’s game winner late in Game 8 of the 1972 Summit Series.

Cam Neely

The Maple Ridge, B.C. native returns home to the Lower Mainland, where he began his career as a Vancouver Canuck before becoming one of the game’s greats with the Boston Bruins. Although he never represented Canada in international play, Neely was one of the country’s top players during his era, fully deserving of his 2005 enshrinement into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Serge Savard

An eight-time Stanley Cup champion, Savard was one of the Montreal Canadiens’ ‘Big Three’ on the blue line, joining Larry Robinson and Guy Lapointe during the final Habs dynasty in the 1960s and 70s. A 1986 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, Savard wore the red and white of Team Canada – in the 1972 Summir Series and at the 1976 Canada Cup – both victories for Canada.

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.
