It’s like we’re still home with Hitch (Flyers coach Ken Hitchcock) and (assistant coach) Wayne (Fleming) here.
We’re playing the same forecheck, the same penalty kill. So a lot of the stuff is easier for me.
Hitch (an assistant for Team Canada) is quieter over here. A couple times in the first period (of Game 1 vs. Italy), I was looking at him and waiting for him to start yelling a little bit. But he was pretty good.
Sweden star Peter Forsberg will test his strained left groin in practice Friday and expects to learn if he can play in the Olympics.
As the Olympics wear on, Team USA coach Peter Laviolette believes offense could be his team’s greatest strength.
