Top moments of the last few days at the Sochi Games

There are an overwhelming number of stories coming out of the Olympics, every minute of every day. Here are the best of the last few days. Catch up right here.

USA-Russia Men's Hockey. It'll be one of the greatest games of 2014 no matter what happens the rest of the year. A tense, taut game ending in an edge-of-the-cliff shootout, complete with national pride and a handy referee controversy ... what more could you ask for in an Olympic match? This was two of the best hours of the Olympics, and it might just get even better in the medal round.

Bode Miller's breakdown. Old Man Miller won bronze in the Super G, the oldest Olympian ever to medal in an Alpine skiing event. But that victory took a back seat to his controversial NBC interview. Was he badgered into crying, or was he teetering on the edge already? You make the call.

Ice dancing drama: Hockey may be the most dramatic of any sport in the Olympic, but ice dancing has the most capital-d Drama. Charlie White and Meryl Davis captured gold over their Canadian rivals despite arguments of alleged conspiracy and judging bias, marking the United States' first-ever gold medal in the event.

Skeleton heartbreak. American skeleton racer John Daly was a medal hopeful, but he had a disastrous start to his final run, and had a long, long mile to think about his missed opportunity. At least his teammate Matt Antoine was able to nab a bronze.

Bobsledding Americana: You don't get more American than Steven Holcomb, Olympian and National Guardsman. He piloted the two-man bobsled to bronze on Monday, the United States' first medal in the event since 1952. 

Snowboarding nightmare: Lindsey Jacobellis is once again a story of Olympic heartbreak, falling yet again in her snowboardcross race and perpetuating her nightmarish run that dates back eight years.

Jamaican bobsled team: Well, it wasn't exactly "Cool Runnings II," as the Jamaican bobsled team finished 29th out of 30 countries racing in Sochi. (Sorry, Serbia.) So, it might not have been a medal-winning expedition across the world, but at least we got a great song out of it all.
