A viewing guide to what's on tap for Canada on Day 8 of the Games.

Afternoon: The men's super-G (2:30 p.m., CTV, also TSN, all times ET) is the daytime's showcase event. Canada is desperate for an alpine medal, with Erik Guay getting 14-1 odds to win in a fairly wide-open field. In hockey, Belarus is at Sweden (3 p.m., Rogers Sportsnet/RDS/ctvolympics.ca). Tommy Salo references are officially dated.

Evening: The event with Canadian medal interest, skeleton, is all at ctvolympics.ca. Mellisa Hollingsworth is in third place going into the women's finals (6:45 and 7:55). Jon Montgomery is second entering the men's finals (9:20 and 10:50).

In hockey, Sportsnet has the Czech Republic-Latvia game (7:3 0), where you can wonder what kind of stats Jaromir Jagr would have put up if he could have played in the 'new NHL' in his prime. It's Finland-Germany in the nightcap (12 a.m., CTV).

TSN is set to focus on Denmark-Canada in men's curling (6 p.m.) and the compulsories in ice dance (9 p.m.). Canada's Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir are the final pair of the evening. Canada also faces Denmark in women's curling (10 p.m., Sportsnet).
