Roberto Luongo to start versus Germany

"This is Luongo's Team Now"

CTV is reporting that Roberto Luongo will start Tuesday night for Team Canada against Germany, and should Canada win that game, he will carry the torch going forward.

The Toronto Star is also reporting that "when asked if Luongo was taking over the rest of the tournament, Babcock said it was a moot point. Now that the teams are in single-game knockout mode, if a goalie has a bad game, Canada’s Olympics will be over.

“If you’re changing goalies, you’re probably out of the tournament,” he said. “If you don’t win now, you go home.”

Babcock also made adjustments to his forward lines, moving Eric Staal onto the top line with Sidney Crosby and Jarome Iginla and placing Rick Nash on left wing with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. "
