Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price started in Canada’s final preliminary game against Finland and led his team to a 2-1 win in overtime, but Canada head coach Mike Babcock hasn’t confirmed him as the starter for Canada’s quarterfinal game on Wednesday.
Babcock asked if he knows who he’ll start in goal in quarters and if he’ll tell us: “No and won’t tell ya.”

There’s a small chance Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo could get the start in that game, but conventional wisdom would suggest Price starts.
Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis played only 3:58 against Finland and there is no word if he will remain in the lineup for the quarter finals.
Canada will play the winner of the Latvia and Switzerland qualification game, which is taking place on Tuesday.
