Just three days remain the Winter Olympics, but some of the biggest events are still on tap, including the conclusion of women's figure skating.

Here's what you need to be watching:

Figure skating

Begins at 8 p.m. ET

A Russian skater will finish first and second in the women’s competition, it’s just a matter of whether it’s Evgenia Medvedeva or Alina Zagitova winning gold. The two are far and away the best of the bunch. U.S. skaters are 9th, 10th and 11th after disappointing short programs and are out of contention for a medal.  

Men’s hockey

CZE-OAR at 2:40 a.m. ET, CAN-GER at 7:10 a.m. ET on Friday

The semifinals feature the Czech Republic vs. the Olympic Athletes from Russia and Canada vs. Germany. Canada is the two-time defending Olympic champion and is heavily favored against Germany. According to >CBC, the Canadians are 27-1-1 against Germany in Olympic and world championship competition. Starting goalie Ben Scrivens was taken out in a collision against Finland in the quarterfinals and was listed as day to day.

Speedskating

Scheduled for 5 a.m. ET on Friday

In the men’s 1,000, American Shani Davis takes the ice in what could be his final Olympic race. Mitch Whitmore and Joey Mantia are the other U.S. skaters in the field. Davis is a two-time Olympic champion in the 1,000, winning in 2006 and 2010, but at 35 it would be a massive shock if he made the podium here.

Biathlon

Scheduled for 6:15 a.m. ET on Friday

It’s the final day of competition with the men’s 4x7.5K relay. France’s Martin Fourcade will race for his fourth gold medal of these Games, after winning the individual 12.5K pursuit and mass start and competing on the mixed relay. Fourcade, 29, also won two golds and a silver in Sochi and has already stated he intends to compete in the Beijing Winter Games in 2022.
