According to Greg Wyshynski over at Yahoo! Sports' Olympic blog, Fourth Place Medal, the Canadians will start Roberto Luongo in net on Tuesday against the Germans.
Martin Brodeur minded the net in Canada's 3-2 shooutout win over Switzerland, and was also the goalie in Sunday night's 5-3 loss to the U.S. team, a loss during which he looked unusually shaky.
Luongo, the Vancouver Canucks goalie, started Canada's first game of the Olympics, an 8-0 win over Norway.
Coach Mike Babcock's strategy was to give Luongo an early game to acclimate him to playing on his home ice, in front of rabid fans. The move allowed Canada to come back to him knowing he'd already experienced the fervor in Hockey Place, if not the pressure of an elimination game. The Germany game is another primer, preceding a quarterfinal slugfest with Russia.
No word on who would start against Russia in the quarterfinals, should Canada advance past Germany.
