Carey Price gets start vs. Finland, looks to be Canada's No. 1
Cary Price or Roberto Luongo, that was the question. The answer looks to be Price as he'll start for Canada against Finland on Sunday.
After the two goalies split the first two starts, Canadian coach Mike Babcock was playing coy and hadn't named a "No. 1" for Canada. There wasn't much to distinguish between both of them either in the starts but the competition wasn't oustanding in Austria and Norway.
Sunday is a different story, though, with Finland on the other side. This is the game that will decide the group, the winner finishes first in Group C and earns the bye into the quarterfinals. It's Canada's first real test and Babcock has decided to go to Price. When he was finally forced into making the big decision, it was to turn to the Canadien.
Making the decision tough (and interesting from the outside) is the fact that good arguments could be made for both. In the NHL this season Price has had some better statistics but not by a substantial margin. Luongo, you'll recall, led Canada to the gold in 2010.
