It may be Valentine's Day, but that's no excuse not to take part in watching the Winter Games Wednesday night. Team USA's Mikaela Shiffrin will get a chance to ski at these Olympics in the women's giant slalom. She was a 2014 gold medalist looking for another win if everything goes well.

Also on tap Wednesday: the men's downhill is expected, and then later it will be time for women's hockey with Team USA looking to edge out Canada (which has won four straight Olympic gold medals).

And in case you missed it, Shaun White displayed an epic final run Tuesday night to claim his third gold medal in Olympic men's halfpipe and posted a score of 97.75 for the 100th overall gold by the United States in the Winter Games. He edged out Japan's Ayumu Hirano whose 95.25 score was the one to beat. He took home silver. White is the first American male to win gold at three separate Winter Olympics.
