Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone!

Welcome to a live blog of the men’s Olympic hockey game between Canada and Austria.

Canada won their first game yesterday by a 3-1 mark over Norway, while Austria was outgunned by Finland 8-4.

For Canada, P.K. Subban and Matt Duchene draw into the lineup while Patrick Sharp and Dan Hamhuis take a rest. Meanwhile, goaltender Carey Price goes to the press box while Mike Smith dresses and backs up Roberto Luongo in net.

For Austria, this team allowed a ton of shots to Finland and because of it, couldn’t keep the puck out of their own net. If they do that again with Canada, it could be a similar result as with Finland.

Game time is just after Noon Eastern.
