2014 Winter Olympics Results: February 18

The 2014 Winter Olympics entered a transitional period on Tuesday as the tournament events began moving into their elimination rounds and others began wrapping up altogether.

The United States found out their next opponent in the men's hockey tournament as the Czech Republic brought down Slovakia in the qualification rounds. With their 4-0 defeat of Norway, Russia advanced and will meet Finland in the quarterfinals. With Canada taking on the underdog Latvia, the chances of a USA-Canada semifinals got a little better, all things being considered. Finland is no joke, but a Russia victory opens the door for a rematch with the U.S. in a gold medal game.

American David Wise took the first ever gold medal in ski halfpipe with a 92.00 overall score. This gold moved the U.S. up in the medal count, tying with Netherlands for the overall lead.

Women's bobsleigh began the two-man heats, with the U.S. occupying first and third place through the second heat. United States 3, carrying brakeman Lolo Jones, finished the preliminary heats ranked no. 11.

Netherlands took yet another sweep, this time in the men's 10,000m speed skating. Jorrit Bergsma set an Olympic record with his 12:44.45 run, taking the gold medal.

After a postponement due to fog, men's snowboard cross held its runs, with Pierre Vaultier of France taking the gold. American Alex Deibold secured the bronze, coming out of a fourth position start.

The hot ticket is for tomorrow as the U.S. women's hockey team enters a rematch of the 2010 gold medal game in Vancouver against Canada. Goaltender Jessie Vetter is expected to get the start for Team USA, who still has yet to defeat Canada in the Olympics.

All results are final unless otherwise noted.
