SOCHI SCENE: Tracking the pucks

AP - Sports

SOCHI, Russia (AP) -- The hockey pucks that wind up in the net get special treatment at the Sochi Games.

Jamie Benn got Canada on the board in the semifinal against the United States with a goal in the second period. Officials grabbed the puck and skated it over to the scorekeeper, who then wrapped it in tape and wrote when the puck hit the net and who scored it, as illustrated by this photo from The Associated Press's Jimmy Golen.
