OLYMPIC IMPACT

Last night was one of those games with cross-border Olympic team implications.

Toronto coach Ron Wilson was watching likely Team USA goaltender Ryan Miller try and beat his team, while Sabres coach Lindy Ruff was making mental notes on potential Americans Mike Komisarek and Phil Kessel to report back to Team Canada coach Mike Babcock.

"There is a lot of hockey left to play," Miller cautioned of being nominated the American starter by the media. "We have all of December, January and a couple of weeks in February. With a condensed schedule, that's roughly 30-odd games, more than we've played to this point.

"I have to play well for my team first and (Vancouver) will take care of itself."

SCHENN CRUSHED

Saskatoon native Luke Schenn loves Rider green, but was feeling awfully blue at the end of Sunday's Grey Cup.

"I'm a huge Saskatchewan fan, but no one in here is a real CFL guy so I was watching by myself," Schenn said yesterday. "I saw them celebrating (the apparent missed Montreal field goal) and then I saw all the penalty flags. I still thought they could do it. But what a terrible feeling for Rider Nation."

It could've been worse for him. Schenn might have been over at Alouette fan Francois Beauchemin's house.

"I just saw the ending and I couldn't believe it," Beauchemin said. "At the half they were down by so much."
