Saturday will be a big day for Canadian curling at the 2014 Sochi Olympics with three draws scheduled.

It all begins at midnight ET with the undefeated Jennifer Jones taking on Japan, which has a record of 2-3.

Team Jones is now 5-0 in Sochi after defeating Switzerland 8-5 on Thursday. They are the only curling team at these Olympics, men or women, which is still unbeaten. They've also scored at least eight points in all of their draws so far.

Jones will play another draw at 10:00 a.m. ET when she faces Russia, which is currently 3-3.

​Men's team on a roll

Brad Jacobs won his first draw of the tournament, an 11-8 victory against Germany, but proceeded to lose two in a row. However, he is back on track with three straight wins, including a dominant 10-4 victory over the Norwegians on Friday.

Team Jacobs is 4-2 and will look to improve on that with a draw against Great Britain at 5:00 a.m. ET.

After Saturday, Jones and Jacobs will each have two draws remaining in their respective round robins.

If necessary, tie-breakers will occur on Tuesday. 

The semifinals occur on Wednesday, with the winners on the women's side playing for medals on Thursday and the men on Friday.
