After cruising against Norway, Canada will face Austria on Friday. Finland did a lot more than cruise in its game against Austria, and now they face Norway today. Here are the two stream links:

While Austria has a little more firepower than Norway, Thomas Vanek & Co. aren’t expected to threaten Canada. The most interesting development to watch is the lineup changes for Canada. While Roberto Luongo (pictured) getting the second start over Carey Price is the attention-grabber, P.K. Subban and Matt Duchene suiting up is noteworthy, too. Subban won the 2013 Norris Trophy for best defenseman last season.
Finland showed some explosiveness against Austria, but now they probably want to make sure that they can limit opposing offenses with what’s expected to be light resistance from Norway. Limiting scoring is supposed to be Finland’s blueprint in this tournament, so a low-scoring win might actually be more promising than another 8-4 show like they had in their opener.
