2014 Winter Olympics Results: February 14

Day seven of competition in the 2014 Winter Olympics proved to be difficult for the United States with only one medal and a tournament win.

The American men's curling team began a comeback in the tournament, defeating Germany 8-5. As the U.S. has struggled in the curling preliminaries, a win was sorely needed. Though eventually falling to Russia in a 7-6 heartbreak in the next session, having a win in their hands can revitalize the team as the round robin sessions continue. In the sole women's session, the U.S. fell to Denmark 9-2.

One of the huge stories of the day was American slider Noelle Pikus-Pace taking silver in the women's skeleton, ending her rivalry with Great Britain’s Lizzy Yarnold. Pikus-Pace has previously retired from skeleton competition, and returned for the games in Sochi at the urging of her husband and children. The head-to-head competition carried over from the World Cup, and was slammed shut when Yarnold set a track record with her massive third run.

Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu gave a triumphant figure skating performance to take the gold in the men's free skate. His dazzling program snared him an overall 280.9 for the decisive win.

In the men's hockey tournament, Canada answered the doubters by handing Austria a humiliating 6-0 loss. Most observers predict a Canada-United States gold medal game, and this game gives the Canadians the goal differential they'll need to ensure a solid place in the elimination rounds.

Teemu Selanne got things started for Finland, leading to a 6-1 defeat of the struggling Norway squad. With that win, Finland resubmitted their name to the conversation for tournament favorites.

All results are final unless otherwise noted.
