SOCHI, Russia — Carey Price has been named the starting goaltender for Canada against Finland.
Price stopped 19 shots in his Olympic debut, a 3-1 win over Norway on Thursday.
Roberto Luongo had a 23-save shutout the next day against Austria. Luongo helped the Canadians win gold on home ice four years ago at the Vancouver Olympics.
Canada also plans to put Dan Hamhuis and Patrick Sharp in its lineup Sunday — replacing P.K. Subban and Martin St. Louis — against the Finns in the preliminary-round finale for both nations.
