Useless Olympic Fact of the Day

From the Vancouver Courier's Trivial Turin Tidbits:

Canada's first gold medal in a winter sport wasn't at a Winter Olympics. Hockey was contested at the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Belgium. They love their chocolate, beer and post-winter hockey in Belgium. Canada won hockey gold at the first Winter Olympics in Chamonix, France in 1924.

Canada beat Italia 7-2. Yep, they gave up 2 goals to Italy! I guess we can blame jetlag and the crappy goaltending of Martin Brodeur ;)

Czechia beat the Deutschlanders 4-1. Hasek tweaked himself hard, but in slips Vokoun and the world keeps spinning without a beat. No real surprises otherwise.
