Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork.com) - Canada's men's hockey team has named Carey Price as the starting goaltender for Sunday's matchup with Finland at the Sochi Olympics.

Price stopped 19-of-20 shots in a 3-1 win over Norway in Canada's Olympic opener, but was replaced for the team's second game by Roberto Luongo, who posted a 23-save shutout in a 6-0 win over Austria on Friday.

Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock also made a pair of lineup changes for Sunday's game, replacing defenseman P.K. Subban with blueliner Dan Hamhuis and forward Martin St. Louis with winger Patrick Sharp.

Canada and Finland sit tied atop Group B with six points heading into Sunday's showdown, which marks the final game of the preliminary round of the men's tournament for both teams.
