Goalie Price to start Canada’s 1st Olympic game
SOCHI, Russia — Goalie Carey Price will start Canada’s Olympic opener against Norway on Thursday, and Roberto Luongo will start Friday against Austria.
Canada coach Mike Babcock announced his rotation Wednesday after practice in Sochi.
Babcock and both goalies attributed no significance to the order. The coach had previously said both goalies likely would start at least once in the preliminary round.
Price is a three-time All-Star with the Montreal Canadiens. The British Columbia native will make his Olympic debut against Norway.
The 34-year-old Luongo is a three-time Olympian who already earned a gold medal in 2010. He won four straight elimination games in Vancouver, making 34 saves in the overtime final against the United States.
Canada is expected to dominate its weak preliminary-round group, which includes Norway, Austria and Finland.
