Tuukka Rask will start for Finland against Canada on Sunday in a Group B showdown at the 2014 Sochi Olympics (12 p.m. ET; USA, CBC)

Rask, of the Boston Bruins, started the Finns' first game in the 2014 Sochi Olympics, an 8-4 win against Austria on Thursday in which he stopped 16 of 20 shots. Dallas Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen played Finland's second game, a 6-1 rout of Norway. Antti Niemi of the San Jose Sharks has yet to play in the tournament.

Canada will start Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens in goal.

The Canada-Finland winner will finish first in Group B and earn a bye into the quarterfinals, which begin Wednesday. A regulation victory would give the winner the top seed.
