Some Interesting Team Canada Olympic Records

In case you missed it, while Canada was routing Austria 6-0 I was busy tweeting all sorts of neat Team Canada records, facts and stats.

I'll repost them here for your enjoyment, but you are better off just following me on Twitter @HockeyLegends

Canada's all time record after 1st period:
Leading after 1 - 79-1-2
Tied after 1 - 9-12

Canada's All Time Record after 2 periods:
Leading After 2 - 86-2-2
