Canada wears out Norway in opener

From the Associated Press:

Jarome Iginla and Dany Heatley scored twice and heavily favored Canada overcame some early nervousness and a scoreless first period to roll over Norway, 8-0, in its highly anticipated Olympic hockey opener Tuesday.
The Canadians are so deep and balanced that 15 players figured in their first six goals. Sidney Crosby had three assists in his Olympic debut as Canada showed off the offensive strength it lacked in Turin four years ago, when it was shut out in three of its final four games while finishing seventh.

Update: Iginla has been credited with Canada's last goal, making it a hat trick.
