This graph, from Edmonton water utility EPCOR, shows the city's average water consumption (teal line) contrasted with water consumption during the Olympic gold medal hockey game.    (EPCOR)

(Newser) – Apparently most of Canada was holding it during the gold medal hockey game. Water consumption spiked wildly between the game’s periods, as much of the city ran to the bathroom, according to this incredible graph from Edmonton’s water utility. During the final moments of the game, and during the medal ceremony, consumption fell off equally drastically, hitting insane lows. This is what happens when 80% of your country is watching the same sporting event.
