Qualification Playoffs Begin Today

Today's schedule:

  • 3:00 PM - Switzerland (8) VS Belarus (9) @ Canada Hockey Place (TV: SNET,USA,RDS)
  • 7:30 PM - Canada (6) VS Germany (11) @ Canada Hockey Place (TV: CNBC,CTV,RDS)
  • 10:00 PM - Czech Republic (5) VS Latvia (12) @ UBC Thunderbird Arena (TV: CNBC,TSN,RDS)
  • 12:00 AM - Slovakia (7) VS Norway (10) @ Canada Hockey Place (TV: CNBC,CTV,RDS)
The big news for Team Canada is that Luongo will be starting in goal against Germany tonight. Everyone loves Brodeur and he is a good goalie, but sometimes he's just "off" and against the US I felt he was "playing the puck" too much for his own (or his team's) good. He was taking advantage of the difference in Olympic rules that allow him to do that more at the risk of winning (playing better). I honestly wish that they'd give Fleury a shot (and, YES, I am bias with that, but the kid deserves a chance ... he's clutch when it counts!)!!
