SOCHI — Carey Price will play in goal for Team Canada in its Olympic opener against Norway on Thursday, while Roberto Luongo will get the call against Austria on Friday. Its up the two of them to determine which goalie will start against Finland on Sunday. Canadian mens head coach Mike Babcock said there was no reason for his decision. Babcock informed his goalies, including the teams third goalie, Mike Smith, of the decision in face-to-face meetings on Wednesday morning. "Im really thrilled and ready to go," Price said. "Our preparations have been really good so far. All three of knew that if we were called upon, wed be ready to get in there." Price enters the Olympics on a roll. He won his final three starts with the Montreal Canadiens before the break, stopping 100 of 103 shots, including a 5-2 victory over Luongo and the Vancouver Canucks in Montreal on Feb. 6. Luongo and the Canucks, meanwhile, have struggled with seven straight losses. Luongo has been in goal for five of those defeats and has won only three of his last 10 starts. The Canucks netminder was in goal when Canada won gold in Vancouver four years ago. "Oh, it didnt matter," said Luongo, when asked about the decision to start with Price. "I think right now its just focusing on Norway, thats the first challenge for our team. Ive got to be ready, you never know what can happen in the game. I dont want to look too far ahead right now. I just want to focus on tomorrow, making sure that as a group, not only myself, that were ready to play." Price was asked to look down the road to possibly getting the start against Finland "All Im concerned about is our game tomorrow," he said. "Thats all that matters." Because of Canadas roster size, Smith will be joined on the sidelines by a defenceman and forward. But Babcock would not divulge who the two scratches will be. Canada practiced for the third time and once again kept their lines the same as they prepare to open the competition on Thursday.

On Sunday, he could be starting at cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Marsh, a third-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2011, was cut by the team in training camp. He was then signed by the Cincinnati Bengals and released a few weeks later. With just four cornerbacks on the roster, and one of them, starter Bradley Fletcher, hampered by a pectoral injury he sustained in last Sundays win over Oakland, the Eagles reached out to Marsh. They signed him Tuesday. Fletcher has yet to practice fully this week, and if his condition does not improve, either Marsh, or Roc Carmichael could start opposite Cary Williams at corner when the Eagles travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers. "Thats one of the benefits of having a guy that you signed that you can run and compete," defensive co-ordinator Bill Davis said of Marsh. "He almost made the team, so he was very close, one of the last cuts. "We have a lot of confidence in Curtis. He knows the system. He may very well have to go out and play a lot of snaps against Green Bay," Davis said. "We have to have someone who understands how we communicate and how the defence is structured." Marsh, 6-foot-1, 197 pounds, played seven games as a rookie in 2011 and 15 last year. He also played in two games for the Bengals this year before being released. He has never started in 24 career games. The 25-year-old cornerback remains confident he can help, if needed. "Its a huge advantage for me because I know the calls," Marsh said. "I know the hand signals.dddddddddddd. I know the techniques. I know this system. There might be a few things I still need to learn, but if they give me the game plan Ill pick it up right away. "Theres no learning period, like there was in Cincinnati," he added. "When I was in Cincinnati, I had to learn a whole new playbook. Its a lot easier when youve been with a team all through training camp. Without (training camp) its a lot more difficult." Fletcher, a free agent addition from St. Louis, has started eight of the teams nine games this year, missing the second week of the season against San Diego with a concussion. The fifth-year veteran shares the team lead with two interceptions and leads the team with 12 pass breakups. "I was still limited in what I could do," Fletcher said. "Im feeling better every day, though. Im running better. It doesnt hurt as much. So well just see how it goes. Well see how I feel Saturday and Sunday." Fletchers loss, if he cant play, would be even more worrisome if Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasnt out with a broken collarbone. "I hope we have him," Davis said. "But hes got an injury that just takes us day to day and well watch it one day at a time." NOTES: Defensive end Cedric Thornton (knee) returned to practice yesterday and is expected to play Sunday. Quarterback Mike Vick (hamstring) was limited again and is not expected to play. Nick Foles took all the reps with the first team and Matt Barkley got the reps with the twos, according to head coach Chip Kelly. ' ' '
