The second day of Olympic hockey games are through, and one New York Islander came away with a hat trick in a loss, while another went pointless in a win.

Michael Grabner's hat trick began with a one-timer in the first minute, but it came in a predictable loss to Finland, who fired 52 shots at Austrian goalie The Starkbaum in winning 8-4.

John Tavares skated on the fourth line for Canada, a line that did well in generating chances actually (because Canada: Loaded.), and also featured on a couple of combos with Sidney Crosby on power play opportunities.
