from Stephen Whyno of the CP at the Brandon Sun,
Team Canada will split goaltending duties for the first two games of the Olympics, as Carey Price will start the opener against Norway and Roberto Luongo will play against Austria.
Coach Mike Babcock delivered the news to the goaltenders on Wednesday, roughly 36 hours before puck drop of the Norway game. Babcock had one plan all along but didn't give a rationale for why he chose this order.
"I was going to play one of them in (each of) the first two games," Babcock said. "If I had put Luongo in, you'd be asking me the same question."
