Below are several Associated Press stories about men’s and women’s hockey.

Crosby grows into leadership role with Canada

SOCHI, Russia—Sidney Crosby and Canada coach Mike Babcock slowly circled the Olympic rink before practice, two serious men enmeshed in a no-nonsense discussion about defensive zone coverage.

Four years after his gold medal-winning overtime goal in Vancouver, Crosby is paying close attention to every detail during his second trip to the Olympics. After all, he is Canada’s captain now, the public face of likely the most talented team in Sochi.

“I think you’re much more used to things” in a second trip to the Olympics, Crosby said. “You’re a little wide-eyed that first time.”

Crosby’s eyes are still open, but that’s because he’s looking out for his Canadian teammates now. Wearing the captain’s “C” is an enormous honor to Crosby, and he has ideas about the style of leadership that will work in the Olympics’ compressed schedule and high-stress environment.

Crosby learned from the stoic confidence of Scott Niedermayer, the veteran defenseman who led the way in Vancouver. He’ll rely on a Canadian roster filled with captains from other teams, including two-time Stanley Cup winner Jonathan Toews.

And when it’s time to step up in the dressing room in the big games, Crosby intends to be ready.

“Sid doesn’t say a lot, but what he says makes sense,” Canada assistant coach Ken Hitchcock said.

A day before Canada opened the tournament against Norway, Crosby was still settling into the Olympic village on the edge of the Black Sea and going to practice on one of Sochi’s five sparkling hockey rinks. On Wednesday, he walked outside in full uniform and sandals, enjoying the 60-degree weather while moving between arenas.

In Vancouver, Crosby was still a 22-year-old prodigy whose golden goal essentially capped a meteoric rise to the top of his sport. Eight months before that, he had become the youngest captain to win the Stanley Cup with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The ensuing four years wouldn’t fit in any storybook, though. He missed most of a two-year stretch with problems from apparent concussions, playing in just 28 games in two years starting in January 2011.

Crosby is back on top of the NHL scoring list this season with 78 points, leading Canada teammate Ryan Getzlaf by 11. The Penguins are the best team in the East with a conference-high 40 victories, gearing up for another Stanley Cup run with Crosby at the center of everything.

But first, Crosby has 12 days to lead Canada another gold medal.

Crosby understands the world’s temptation to regard this tournament as his personal clash with Alex Ovechkin, the superstar facing enormous scrutiny in his home Olympics, just as Crosby did four years ago. Crosby insists it’s not about two players, even if they’re sharing the spotlight.

“We’ve got a lot of guys who have played together, not just the last Olympics but going back a ways,” Crosby said. “I think there’s some trust there. And for the new guys coming in, you try to make them feel as comfortable as possible. We’re trying to do that. That’s the strength of Canada. Guys always come together pretty quick. That’s instilled in us at an early age. I like that side of things for sure.”

Though Canada might seem to be carrying only a fraction of the pressure that fell on the team’s shoulders in its home Olympics four years ago, Crosby and his teammates don’t think about it that way.

While the Bolshoy Ice Dome won’t be jammed with red-and-white-clad fans waving maple leaf flags, most of Canada’s team knows what it would mean to win a third gold medal in the last four Olympics in the nation’s most popular sport.

“It doesn’t feel that much different, honestly,” Crosby said. “I think there’s pressure every time you put this jersey on. Playing at home (in Vancouver), we used that energy in the games, but I’m sure we’ll have a good Canadian crowd here, too, and we know we’ve got a whole country behind us.”

Goalie Jonathan Quick to start Sochi opener for US

SOCHI, Russia—Jonathan Quick was sitting and stretching before practice when U.S. hockey coach Dan Bylsma skated toward him. Bylsma leaned over and told him he was starting against Slovakia in the Americans’ Olympic opener Thursday.

“I’m fortunate for the opportunity,” Quick said. “And I’ll just try to make the most of it.”

Bylsma declined to say who will be the team’s goaltender for the other preliminary-round games, which includes a key matchup with Russia on Saturday.

“We have plans for Game 1,” Bylsma said Wednesday after practice.

Quick is getting the nod instead of Ryan Miller and Jimmy Howard.

Miller helped the Americans win silver and was the Most Valuable Player of the hockey tournament at the 2010 Olympics when Quick was their No. 3 goalie.

Quick won the Conn Smythe as MVP of the 2012 Stanley Cup playoffs when he helped the Kings become the only eighth-seeded team to win a championship.

“He’s a great goalie and he’s going to do great for us,” Miller said. “We’ll see where it goes from here and I’ll be ready to play.”

Quick hasn’t been at his best this season.

His save percentage ranks 29th among NHL goalies and he was out for nearly two months with a groin injury before returning to play in early January.

Miller ranks 10th in save percentage despite playing for the Buffalo Sabres, who easily have the worst record in the league.

Howard, who has been out during two stretches of the season with an injured left knee, is not expected to be in uniform much if at all during the Sochi Games. He ranks 24th in the NHL in save percentage, but has four-plus years of experience as a No. 1 goaltender for the Detroit Red Wings.

“We’re dealing with a position of strength when it comes to the goaltender decision,” Bylsma said.

Quick said it was a casual conversation with Bylsma when he found out he would make his first Olympic start.

“We’ve got a few great goalies here,” Quick said. “Each one probably deserves to play and can make a case for each of them in their own right. So, regardless of what his decision was, whatever your role is, you’re just trying to do what you can to help your team.”

IOC: Women’s hockey won’t get booted from Olympics

SOCHI, Russia—IOC spokesman Mark Adams says organizers are “very pleased” with the quality of play in the women’s hockey tournament so far in Sochi.

Because of a format change that separated the top and bottom teams in the world, there have been fewer blowouts than in past Olympics.

Then-IOC President Jacques Rogge had been quoted after the Vancouver games as saying, “We cannot continue without improvement.” But Adams says the former president was supportive of women’s hockey and was only thinking “way into the future.”

The United States and Canada are the sport’s two biggest powers, winning every gold medal at the Olympics and world championships.

Selanne leads big list of Olympic hockey veterans

SOCHI, Russia—Teemu Selanne can only chuckle when he realizes his two linemates had yet to be born the first time he played hockey at the Olympics.

That’s what happens when somebody travels as far beyond the normal endpoints of a hockey career as has Selanne, who is heading into his record-tying sixth Olympics in Sochi.

Yet the 43-year-old “Finnish Flash” has no qualms about the generation gap while he skates at the Bolshoy Ice Dome alongside 21-year-old Mikael Granlund and 18-year-old Alexander Barkov, the youngest player in Sochi.

“Maybe that’s because mentally, we are the same age,” Selanne said.

Selanne isn’t the only old-timer in Sochi hoping for one last trip to the medal stand. The Olympic field is dotted with famous names who are temporarily turning back time.

There’s Jaromir Jagr, who will turn 42 when the Czech Republic plays Switzerland on Saturday, and his 42-year-old teammate Petr Nedved, who is back at the games after an Olympic-record 20-year absence — playing for a different nation, to boot.

Finland’s Kimmo Timonen will turn 39 next month, joining fellow defenseman Sami Salo. Austria defenseman Gerhard Unterluggauer is a spring chicken of 37, but has 239 games of international experience.

Latvia has 41-year-old Sandis Ozolinsh in its defense again, and Sweden is counting on strong play from 41-year-old Daniel Alfredsson, who speaks for most of his fellow veterans when he emphasizes the importance of enjoying this moment.

“I definitely thought, after the last Olympics, that that would be it,” Alfredsson said. “It definitely feels great to be part of another one. It’s a special experience. Even just being in the Olympic dining area and sitting where everyone sits and looking at people from around the world, I’m going to remember that.”

None of them has been around as long as Selanne, who first skated for Finland at the Albertville Games in 1992. When Finland begins play in Sochi on Thursday, he’ll match the record six Olympic games of fellow Finn Raimo Helminen.

Selanne isn’t just here for a farewell tour, either.

For the first time, the Anaheim Ducks forward is the team captain. It’s a position befitting the top scorer in Olympic hockey history, with 20 goals and 17 assists over 31 games in his five previous appearances. He’s twice led an Olympic Games in scoring and has three medals at his home on the California coast: a silver from Turin in 2006 to go with bronze from Nagano and Vancouver.

“To be honest, I’m expecting a way bigger role than I have in Anaheim,” said Selanne, whose ice time has been compressed with the NHL-leading Ducks. “That’s a big thing in my motivation this year. I know I’m going to play way more here and I’m going to be ready. I’m in a situation in my career where if I play 15 minutes, I try to do that as good as I can. I can play 28 minutes on the first line if I need to.”

Nedved’s Olympic return is perhaps the most improbable. Although he hasn’t played in the NHL since the 2006-07 season, he was amazed to be picked for the Czech team for the first time.

In 1989, a 17-year-old Nedved didn’t even tell his parents before he defected from Czechoslovakia to Canada, walking into a police station in Calgary after a midget tournament. With his new citizenship, he was eligible to play for Canada at Lillehammer in 1994, winning a silver medal.

“It’s been 20 years, a long time ago,” said Nedved, who is still a point-per-game scorer in the Czech domestic league. “I thought it was a great opportunity to be a part of this again and I didn’t want to miss it.”

Nedved has a few more lines in his face and many more white hairs on his chin since he last played in the NHL, but Olympic thoughts are fresh in his mind. Canada lost to Sweden on Peter Forsberg’s historic shootout goal in the finals of the Lillehammer tournament.

“I still have a bitter memory of that, of Forsberg,” Nedved said with a grin Tuesday. “No, it was a great experience for me. It was a really good tournament. It’s tough when you decide a gold medal with penalty shots, but that’s the way it is. I think about that game almost every month.”
