Canada on Day 7: What to watch

A viewing guide to what's on tap for Canada on Day 7 of the Games. Keep in mind, the country won four medals on the first Thursday of the 2006 Olympics.

Afternoon: Canadian men's curling skip Kevin Martin is in action vs. Sweden (noon, CTV/V/APTN, all times ET) after a 2-0 start Tuesday.

The women's super combined (12:50 and 3:50, will get a few look-ins during "Olympic Daytime," but probably not too long a look. The star power of Lindsey Vonn is canceled out by Canada's lack of a serious medal shot.

If none of that grabs you, the early men's hockey game pits plucky Norway against the U.S. (3, Rogers Sportsnet/RDS).

A good Canadian will turn her/his attention to women's 1,000-meter speedskating, where Christine Nesbitt goes for gold (4, CTV). Women's halfpipe qualification begins (4:30, TSN).

Evening: It would be a busy even without a Switzerland-Canada men's hockey game (7:30 CTV/RDS) as a focal point. Take the "over" on references to the 2-0 Swiss upset four years ago.

What else? The men's free skate (8, CTV/TSN) and women's halfpipe final (9) go head-to-head with hockey. The figure skating might hop around the dial a bit. Patrick Chan is seventh going in, far from a medal. Yes, Jeffrey Buttle moved up from sixth to the bronze medal at Turin, but let's not gild the lily.

Skeleton qualifying (7, OLN) begins for Canada's Mellisa Hollingsworth and Jeff Pain.

Both curling teams play, with Canada and Cheryl Bernard facing Germany (5,; TSN joins in progress) and Martin throwing rocks against France (10, Sportsnet).

Russia and Slovakia play in the late hockey game (midnight, Sportsnet).
