Day 9 TOP STORIES:

Canada lit up the first half of the Sochi day, Jan Hudec won Canada’s first men’s alpine medal in 20 years…then in the afternoon, Dominique Maltais nailed down a silver in ladies’ snowboard cross. Oh, and get this, Canada’s curling rinks are a combined 15-and-2. Thought we’d throw that in there. Finally, the night ended with Drew Doughty scoring both goals for the red and white, including an OT marker. Canada beat Finland 2-1.
