2010 Olympics Live Blogging: Canada v. Norway


PRE-GAME
  • NBC/MSNBC/CNBC get your programming together.  I'm here stuck watching Japan/US curling while you guys have the game on another channel.
  • So much RED; looks like a Caps home game.
  • My Prediction: Canada 7 Norway 0
FIRST PERIOD
  • Sidney Crosby making his presence felt early.
  • Drew Doughty on the PP!  Sweet!
  • Norway's going to hold on here.
  • Wow, 0-0.  Didn't see this coming.
SECOND PERIOD
  • Norway playing with fire; 3rd straight PP for Canada.
    Jarome Iginla one-timer from the high slot from Crosby.  Doughty with the second assist.  Arena explodes.  Canada 1 Norway 0
  • Flood gates are just about open.  Chris Pronger with a rocket from the blueline tipped by Dany Heatley.  Canada 2 Norway 0
  • 5-on-3 for Norway.  Mike's excited.
  • Mike Richards grabs the loose puck behind the net and stuffs it.  Canada 3 Norway 0
  • Doughty Hip-Check.
THIRD PERIOD
  • Luongo comes up big with a huge pad save and then Norway misses the open net.
  • Getzlaf missed the open net on the delayed penalty and then a few seconds later backhands it in.  Canada 4 Norway 0
  • Norwegian goalie change?  No matter.
  • Another Canada PP.  Dany Heatley slap shot top of the left faceoff circle.  Shortside blocker side.  Boom goes the dynamite.  Canada 5 Norway 0
  • All-Star Game goal except Norway's actually trying to play D.  Iginla-Crosby-Nash back to Iginla...Yikes!  Canada 6 Norway 0
  • Brendan Morrow?  Give me Captain Canada.
  • Another one.  Staal drives the net and Corey Perry grabs the rebound.  Canada 7 Norway 0
  • Poor Norway.
  • Drew Doughty with a dipsey-doodle around a dman and then the first man back in his own zone.
  • Iginla with the hat trick.  Nothing wrong with his game Calgary.  Canada 8 Norway 0
MY THREE STARS
1. Jarome Iginla
2. Dany Heatley
3. The  Fans
