Price to start for Canada in showdown vs. Finland

by Staff

Carey Price will start in goal for Canada on Sunday in its Group B showdown with Finland (12 p.m. ET, USA, CBC), Hockey Canada announced.

Price played in Canada's first game at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, a 3-1 victory against Norway on Thursday. Roberto Luongo got the call against Austria and was perfect in a 6-0 shutout Friday, but will serve as the backup against Finland.

Defenseman Dan Hamhuis and forward Patrick Sharp will return to the lineup for Canada, replacing defenseman P.K. Subban and forward Martin St. Louis.

The winner of the Canada-Finland game will finish first in the group and earn a bye into the quarterfinals Wednesday. A regulation victory would give the winner the No. 1 seed.
