Patrick Chan, Gabrielle Daleman, Kaetlyn Osmond, Meagan Duhamel, Eric Radford, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir of Team Canada celebrate during the medal ceremony after the Figure Skating Team Event at Medal Plaza on February 12, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.
The United States has 53 points, four more than Italy, with the bronze on the line heading into the free dance.
The duo now have four medals each which ties the record for most Olympic medals won by a figure skater.
Scott Moir offered one of those, quickly erased.
For the second straight Olympics, Team USA captured bronze medals.
A pair of Winter Olympics figure skating going for gold in Pyeongchang this month have been told to change their routine after it was deemed too "suggestive" and "edgy" to perform for global audiences. They got the band back together and decided that the team event was worth their commitment.

"I'm so proud to be on this team", Rippon said on the NBC broadcast. "I survived, and I get to enjoy possibly a gold medal". Chan was able to recover from two early falls in his routine to win the men's free skate.
Canada took a six-point lead over O.A.R. into the third and final day of competition, while the Americans were third.
But recently, they made headlines at the 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships with one move that made audiences clap and gasp at the same time! Nagasu's second place was worth nine points, while Daleman's third was worth eight.
After another first-place finish from two-time world champions Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford in the pairs, and a third-place finish from world silver medallist Kaetlyn Osmond in the women's singles, Canada is in the gold medal position heading into Day 3's final three skates, and six points ahead of the Olympic Athletes from Russian Federation.
For them, it's a chance to work out the kinks in a competitive environment, fine-tuning their own programs for what really matters in the coming days. I'm shaking right now, maybe from the cold or the excitement, I don't know. "I mean, I went to Junior Worlds with little Patrick Chan, before he was a three-time world champion and whatever else is in his trophy room". "In a big way", Moir says, "we wanna do this for Chiddy".
"I'm focusing on my own programs", she said, "but to have the team atmosphere in the kiss-and-cry, and the podium, it's so incredible".
"We wanted to make a bit of a different statement".
