All The Hockey Talk From Vancouver

from NHL.com,

Here is a daily look at what’s being said about the 2010 Olympic hockey tournament.

• A statistical note after Day 1: Individual ice time figures are far below what we would see in a typical NHL game. According to stats at the IIHF website, only one Russian player hit 17 minutes (Konstantin Korneyev, 17:00), leading U.S. player was Erik Johnson (19:23), the leading Canadian player was Dan Boyle (20:12). There are 129 players averaging 20:12 or more in the NHL this season.

• Iginla on the standings tie-breaker: “It came up before the game. It came up between periods, because the goal differential may be a big part of this. We tried to stay focused as the game went on, for every line to keep pushing. Get a power play. We need those goals.”
