Olympic Men's Hockey, Day 1: Canada's Quest For Gold Starts Tonight Against Norway


7:30 PM ET / 4:30 PM PT : Canada vs Norway in Group A action

Broadcast details: Live coverage begins at 8 PM ET / 5 PM PT on CNBC

The Canadians are on home soil and have the pressure of an entire nation on their backs. What better opponent for a team full of NHL super stars to start their Olympic schedule off against then Norway, who has exactly zero NHL players on their roster?

Well, to be fair, two weeks ago Team Norway did have an NHLer on their roster. Ole-Kristian Tollefsen was demoted to Grand Rapids of the AHL after being traded from the Philadelphia Flyers to the Detroit Red Wings. No NHLers for you, Norway.

Roberto Luongo will get the nod in goal for Team Canada, as coach Mike Babcock has chosen to go with the Vancouver Canuck in his home rink for the first game of the tournament. Martin Brodeur will start on Thursday and both games will go into consideration when determining a starter for Sunday's game against the United States.
