Carey Price will start against Norway, Luongo gets call for Austria game

SOCHI, Russia - Carey Price will be in goal when Team Canada plays its first game at the Sochi Olympics.

Head coach Mike Babcock says the Montreal Canadiens netminder will start against Norway on Thursday.

Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks will start Canada's second game against Austria.

It will be Price's Olympic debut while Luongo was in goal when Canada won the gold medal in Vancouver four years ago.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
