Team Canada warming up!
the puck has dropped!
HOCKEY: Callum Ng checking in from Sochi
HOCKEY: As far as Canadians go it is excitement, at the same time there are plenty of Norwegian fans...although Norway isn't a hockey powerhouse, they are in winter sport.
HOCKEY: Good pace early from Norway. At the same time the Canadians are still setting up there lines, getting used to each other is the most important thing.
HOCKEY: Canada has had plenty of chances in front, still scoreless
HOCKEY: The Canadians are rocking the red and white sweaters tonight
HOCKEY: Callum, I know that Babcock has been playing around with the lines, but which combo have you liked best so far?
HOCKEY: In practice I've liked watching Kunitz - Crosby - Carter, there's a lot of chemistry there. Carter has a bomb shot. It'll be interesting.
HOCKEY: Sharp just got tied up at the side of the net, another few good chances
HOCKEY: Ya there is definitely a nice variety of skills in the Kunitz-Crosby-Carter combo. Do I see Toews-Sharp-Nash together also? That should also be an interesting line to watch
HOCKEY: Canada has let 8 shots go at Lars Haugen, the Norwegian goalie, he plays for Dinamo Minsk in Belarus. Most of those shots have been hard.
HOCKEY: Toews and Sharp for sure, they've practiced together on the PK here
@CallumNg: Ya Haugen has looked pretty good so far, considering he is facing some much better skaters than he usually does for Dinamo Minsk
HOCKEY: Canada takes a penalty. Getzlaf gets 2 for tripping.
HOCKEY: Nash and Toews the F on the PK
HOCKEY: Price has made some big saves on this PK
HOCKEY: 1:30 into the penalty, Norway with two decent shots.
HOCKEY: Canada kills off the penalty to Getzlaf
HOCKEY: End of the first period, Canada and Norway scoreless
HOCKEY: Yes, Mark is right, Canada with the 9-8 edge in 1st period shots
HOCKEY: Soooooo...everyone is getting a little worried. Don't be.
HOCKEY: Canada looks comfortable
HOCKEY: They don't need to be their best today. At practice yesterday Babcock said, "...just need to be better each and every day."
HOCKEY: The red jersey is getting some love on our poll...
HOCKEY: Carter on the right side with Crosby is fun to watch
HOCKEY: Shea Weber has one of the hardest slapshots in all of hockey. You can`t blame Haugen on that one
HOCKEY: Assists to Keith and Bergeron
HOCKEY: There you go Canada, stop worrying
HOCKEY: Canada already has 9 shots on goal in the second
