Babcock, Yzerman to attend U.S.-Russia

The Group A showdown between the United States and Russia at Bolshoy Ice Dome will have a couple of especially interested spectators: Canada coach Mike Babcock and executive director Steve Yzerman plan to be in attendance.

"You go to see high-level hockey and what the standard is," Babcock told the media Saturday morning.

Canada has the day off before facing Finland, with the winner earning first place in Group B and a bye into the quarterfinals on Wednesday.
