Each day throughout the Winter Olympics, we'll bring you a daily rundown on what to expect and a look at key story lines in Sochi.

What to watch today, Sunday, Feb. 23

While you were sleeping (spoilers):

The United States took yet another medal in bobsledding, as The Night Train team (Steve Holcomb, Christopher Fogt Curtis Tomasevicz, and Melrose’s Steve Langton) of USA 1 took bronze in the four-man Sunday. Russia took gold, and Latvia silver.

You can watch the bobsled during NBC’s afternoon coverage at 3 p.m.

Russia put a stranglehold on the medal count Sunday by sweeping the men’s 50 K mass start free in cross country. The three medals gave Russia a medal count of 33 (13 gold, 11 silver, and nine bronze). The USA has 28 overall medals (nine gold, seven silver, and 12 bronze). Saturday was the first day of the Sochi Olympics in which the US did not medal.

Medal watch:

Only the gold medal hockey game remains on the Soch schedule. A trio of Boston Bruins will come home with medals after the completion of the tournament. Goale Tuukka Rask already won bronze Saturday when Finland beat Team USA. On Sunday, Patrice Bergeron’s Canada and Loui Eriksson’s Sweden will square off th decide gold and silver (7 a.m., NBC).
