The world of post-lockout NHL has been crazy. We’ve spent the last few years getting used to the faster pace, more frequent power plays, two-line passes, and gimmick endgames; and I think we’re sorta comfortable with it now. The Vancouver Olympics follow the slightly different IIHF rule set, so we thought it’d be nice to give you this quick primer on the changes. Feel free to quote these at a cocktail party to sound smart.
(Is that really the best quality available, YouTube? C’mon.)
There you have it: your cheatsheet to sounding informed regarding Olympic hockey. And don’t forget to tell your friends about the erudite website from which you gained this wisdom: The Pensblog.
