SOCHI, Russia (AP) — In the 55 seconds it took Americans Monique Lamoureux, Brianna Decker and Amanda Kessel to score three goals against Switzerland, you can:

—Warm up a couple pieces of pizza for lunch.

—Pump 9.2 gallons of gasoline into your car.

—See world champion eater Kobayashi down 4.5 hot dogs at the Nathan's Coney Island hot dog-eating contest.

—Remove all doubt from a women's Olympic hockey game.

The Americans' binge came midway through the first period on Monday and got them rolling toward an 9-0 victory.
