Team Canada changes lineup for Austria Friday

According to CBC Sports on Friday, Team Canada hockey head coach Mike Babcock is juggling his lineup for Canada's game against Austria today.

Babcock has decided to play reigning Norris Trophy winner P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens and forward Matt Duchene of the Colorado Avalanche and bench defenseman Dan Hamhuis of the Vancouver Canucks and forward Patrick Sharp of the Chicago Blackhawks.

Team Canada defeated Norway 3-1 on Thursday, but seemed to look sluggish. It also took time for them to get rolling as it was not until the second period for them to score their opening goal. Canada's game against Norway was not all bad, but it is not surprising that Babcock has made some changes into his lineup to generate more goals.

Now just because Canada scores against Austria does not mean they will be able to showcase similar offensive talent in the remaining games of the Olympic tournament, but will provide Babcock more information so he can make decisions as the tournament goes along.
