First up Team Canada:
Can you spot the Hawks!?
Picture from: @endsiny
It was Team Canada's first practice today.
This may or may not surprise you but Seabrook and Keith were paired up. Toews was between Iginla and Morrow.
There is pictures from today but it looks like Crosby was the only one on team.
But if you do like Crosby, the pictures are: HERE
"The other units featured Jonathan Toews between Jarome Iginla and Brenden Morrow; and the all San Jose Sharks line of Joe Thornton, Dany Heatley and Patrick Marleau."
"On defence, Canada put Scott Niedermayer with Shea Weber; and kept the all Chicago Blackhawks' duo of Duncan Keith and Brent Seabrook together."
Keith: "It's in our hometown, but I think there would be pressure on us as Canadians no matter where we were playing, I look at it as though being in Canada is only going to be a good thing for us, and help us more than anything. Having the country behind us and all the support, I think will be a good thing."
Now, Team USA:
Really great and interesting article on Kane.
(so I'm guessing they want gold?)
On being the underdog: "I think it's definitely something we can use in our favor, especially playing against Canada. With the crowd, it's going to be 100 percent at their back. If we can get up on an early lead, maybe use the crowd against them, maybe it can go in our favor too. Obviously I'm sure everyone here doesn't want us to win. But that's the way it is. I'm not worried about what we have in our locker room. I think we're pretty excited about the challenge. We're not coming here just to win bronze or silver. I can honestly say everyone wants to win gold."
Really enjoyed this article too, love the rivalry -USA-Canada hockey game must-see TV for Hawks fans
That's all I got for today!
