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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
