Two of the four came home from Sochi with medals hanging proudly around their necks. The other two came home empty-handed, with disappointing finishes.

Matt Duchene captured gold with Canada, beating Sweden in the finals; thus forcing Gabriel Landeskog to settle for silver. Both Paul Stastny and Semyon Varlamov saw their teams eliminated by Finland, with the former and the United States losing in the bronze medal game and the latter representing Russia, who lost in the quarterfinals.

After competing against each other, Duchene, Landeskog , Stastny and Varlamov are reunited with the Avs, and are ready to get back to work.

“All of us are enjoying our Olympic success and talking to our teammates about it,” said gold medalist Matt Duchene. “But (Wednesday) it's back to work, back to business here with Colorado."

The Avs play the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday. In the meantime, here is a breakdown of each of their Olympians performance in Sochi.
