Many will be spending their lunch break on Thursday, watching Team Canada's women's hockey team go for gold. They will face the U.S.A. in the final, which begins at noon.

This is the fourth time in five Winter Games, that these two teams have met in the final. If Canada wins, it will be their fourth straight Olympic title.

The bronze medal game, starting at 7 a-m Eastern, will see Sweden take on Switzerland.

Meantime, The Canadian and American men's hockey teams square off Friday in the semifinal. The men had a tougher than expected route to the semis, running into a brick-wall goaltender in a 2-1 win over Latvia.

Winnipeg skip Jennifer Jones goes for gold on Thursday in the women's curling final against Sweden, and brings a perfect record of 10-and-0 into the final.  Jones and company hit the ice at 8:30 a-m Eastern.

The British and Swiss clubs play for bronze starting at 3:30 a-m Eastern.

Ontario's Gabrielle Daleman sits third entering the medal skate in women's figure skating at 10 a-m Eastern. Two-time Canadian champ Kaetlyn Osmond of Marystown, Newfoundland is seventh.

The one to beat is defending champion Kim Yuna of South Korea. She's trying to become the first singles skater to win back-to-back Olympic titles since Katarina Witt  in 1984 and '88.

Canada has 18 medals so far at the Sochi Olympics, including a fifth gold that was won on Wednesday by Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse in women's bobsleigh.
