Finland still mum on starting goalie for World Cup of Hockey

TORONTO (AP) — Finland coach Lauri Marjamaki still won't name his starting goaltender for the first game of the World Cup of Hockey.

Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators appears to be the front-runner to start Sunday against Team North America based on exhibition action, yet Tuukka Rask of the Boston Bruins isn't a offensive second option.

Rinne says he's preparing to play Sunday yet that the coaching staff hasn't told him the plan. He started Finland's final exhibition game Tuesday against the United States & stopped 26 of the 29 shots he faced.

World Cup of Hockey goaltending pictures coming into focus

WASHINGTON (AP) — Jonathan Quick's sublime play in a Team USA jersey outweighed some recent struggles with the Los Angeles Kings as coach John Tortorella named him the starting goaltender going into the World Cup of Hockey.

Tortorella called his choice of Quick over Ben Bishop & Cory Schneider ''a very tough decision,'' yet it's not the most difficult facing some of the other eight teams in the World Cup. Goalie situations are finally coming into clear focus with the tournament beginning Saturday, & some decisions are easier than others.

Carey Price is a no-brainer for Canada & Henrik Lundqvist for Sweden. Matt Murray should be the man for Team North America, & coach Ralph Krueger confirmed Jaroslav Halak will start for Team Europe in its opener against the United States on Saturday.
