Canadian hockey players won't be sleeping three to a room after all

Twitter was abuzz earlier this week after a photo of the rooms allegedly going to be used by Canadian hockey players was posted online. It appears, however, that Sidney Crosby and Co. will have a bit more breathing room in regards to their accommodations in Sochi.

According to Canadian chef de mission Steve Podborski, the three-bed room was not indicative of what the situation will actually be. 

We just happened to open a door on a room that had our bobsledders going in, because they were transferring from the airport, spending the night, getting their bag of gear and then heading up (to the mountains) the next day. So we just tossed them in the room. And it was in the hockey building.

"They're two to a room," he added of the NHL players. "They'll be fine."

And Canada breathes a collective sigh of relief and/or shrugs in indifference.
