Pregame analysis: It's interesting to see Team Japan sub in Machida for Hanyu (and Suzuki for Asada). The wrinkle here is that, for Japan to sneak in there for a bronze over the U.S., they almost need to win both singles events with the U.S. coming in last in both. Machida and Suzuki just don't have the scoring potential that Hanyu and Asada have. But the other interesting thing here is that Reynolds was subbed in for Chan, which boosts the chances for Machida to have a potentially high placement.

Either way, the U.S. looks to have a pretty clear road to bronze, even more so than the Hanyu/Asada scenario. We'll see how it unfolds today.
