Capital Olympians: Day 3

Olaf Kolzig, GER - 18 saves on 21 shots against, 2 penalty minutes in 3-3 tie versus Italy

Alexander Ovechkin, RUS - No points, 5 shots on goal, 2 penalty minutes, even in 1-0 win over Kazakhstan

Ivan Majeksy, SVK - No points, no shots on goal, even in 2-1 win over United States

What they're saying:
  • "[German headcoach Uwe] Krupp called a timeout, then pulled Kolzig for an extra skater. Kolzig looked up and pumped his arms in relief when Goc scored, silencing a crowd that had still been buzzing over the 3-2 lead." - AP
  • "Russia have two reasons to smile. ... The second is Alexander Ovechkin. Even though the Washington Capitals rookie did not score, he skated circles around everyone and drew several penalties that proved key in keeping the Kazakhs backpeddling." - Eurosport
