Olympic Hockey Shooting Stats through Play-Ins

Want more evidence that the top two teams in the tournament are meeting today in the quarterfinals?  Canada and Russia have thus far led the tournament in the ratio of what I like to call "close shots" for and against:

 

TM SF/60 SA/60 RATIO
CAN 34.0 15.4 2.21
RUS 30.5 14.3 2.14
SWE 25.7 16.0 1.60
FIN 25.0 17.3 1.44
CZE 26.4 21.0 1.26
SVK 24.7 20.3 1.22
USA 23.3 20.3 1.15
SUI 21.2 21.7 0.98
GER 18.0 23.8 0.76
BLR 14.4 28.3 0.51
NOR 13.9 28.7 0.48
LAT 13.7 34.3 0.40

 

Admittedly, Russia's came against better opposition, but the third place team is so far behind, I don't think they could have caught up no matter who Canada had played.  All productive work in Canada will cease today at 4:30 Vancouver time, with the winner the odds-on favorite to win the Gold Medal.
