U.S. And Canada To Start Goaltenders Quick And Price
The U.S. and Canada have chosen to sit the goaltenders that played in the 2010 gold-medal game at the Vancouver Olympics.
The Americans plan to start Jonathan Quick - not Ryan Miller - on Wednesday in the quarterfinals of the Sochi Games. They'll play either the Czech Republic or Slovakia.
The Canadians are going with Carey Price - not Roberto Luongo - when they're among the final eight teams in the 12-team tournament. They will face either Switzerland or Latvia.
Quick started two games in the preliminary round, including the 3-2 shootout win over the host Russians. Price was also in net for two of Canada's first three games.
Luongo helped Canada beat Miller and the U.S. at the Vancouver Games in overtime.
Tina Maze Wins Olympic Giant Slalom
Tina Maze earned her second gold medal of the Sochi Olympics on Tuesday, winning from the front in a rainy and snowy giant slalom.
Wearing bib No. 1, Maze skied through the gates cleanly to defend her big first-run lead and finish 0.07 seconds ahead of Anna Fenninger of Austria.
Defending champion Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany was third, trailing 0.27 behind Maze's two-run time of 2 minutes, 36.87 seconds.
American teenager Mikaela Shiffrin placed fifth in her Olympic debut.
Maze added giant slalom gold in the rain to her tie for victory in a sunbathed downhill last week. The 30-year-old Maze also won giant slalom silver at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.
