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.
