Happy Tuesday.

Here's a recap of what happened overnight in Sochi and a preview of the morning schedule.

WHILE YOU SLEPT

An unfortunate ending for Julia Mancuso, but not necessarily a lost day for Americans on the slopes of Krasnaya Polyana.

Mancuso failed to finish her first run the giant slalom, her final event in Sochi.

The 29-year-old ends the 2014 Games with one medal, a bronze in the super combined — her fourth Olympic medal.

Was this it for the most decorated female skier in U.S. history?

She left open the possibility of a run at the 2018 Games.

"At the beginning of the season, I felt like there was no way I could come back," she said. "But after coming here, and having that magical day, it makes me want to keep going."

At the other end of the Team USA career arc, 18-year-old sensation Mikaela Shiffrin finished fifth in the giant slalom -- an encouraging performance given that her best event, the slalom, is upcoming.

In addition, the U.S. won a medal in the men's snowboard cross, but it didn't come courtesy of the athlete you might have expected:

Nate Holland, the X Games champion from Truckee, got knocked in the first elimination round. Instead, unheralded Alex Deibold of Manchester, Vt., earned the bronze.

ON TAP THIS MORNING I: HOCKEY QUALIFIERS

The heavyweights have the day off, but the United States and Canada will be watching the qualification round closely. The winner of the Czech-Slovakia game (9 a.m.) advances to face the U.S. in the quarterfinals, while the Switzerland-Latvia survivor (9 a.m.) moves on to play Canada. Both qualifiers will be televised live (by NBCSN and MSNBC). Important schedule note: The U.S. and Canada will both play at 9 a.m. on Wednesday.

ON TAP THIS MORNING II: WOMEN'S BOBSLED

The United States has two medal hopefuls: Elana Meyers, who steers USA-1, and Jamie Greubel, who pilots USA-2. Meyers damaged her sled during training but is expected to participate. The third American sled features former Olympic hurdler Lolo Jones on the brakes. There are two runs this morning (7:15 and 8:15 a.m., no live TV), with the final two on Wednesday.

ON TAP THIS MORNING III: MEN'S FREE SKI HALFPIPE

The event makes its Olympic debut and includes two top-ranked American rivals: David Wise and Torin Yater-Wallace. But they'll have plenty of competition from the Canadian duo of Mike Riddle and Justin Dorey. The finals are scheduled to start at 9:30 a.m. and won't be shown live.

AND COMING WEDNESDAY: THE LADIES ON ICE

With the Ice Dance complete, figure skating takes Tuesday off. Action resumes Wednesday and Thursday with the marquee event: The women's individual competition, which includes Archbishop Mitty sophomore Polina Edmunds. The short program will be shown live at 7 a.m. Wednesday on NBCSN).
