CANADA vs. UNITED STATES – Men’s Hockey

This is the big one, the game Canadian hockey fans have had circled on their calendars since the Olympic schedule was first announced. Two teams without a loss meeting for first place in Group A, with first place and a bye to the quarter-finals on the line. The game marks the first between the North American rivals on Olympic ice since the 2002 gold medal game, where Canada ended its 50-year gold medal drought with a 5-2 win over the U.S. on its home ice.

VICTORY CEREMONIES

Although Canada was shut out of the medals on Saturday, there is still hope a Canadian will step onto the podium on Sunday night, in either Vancouver or Whistler. The men’s super combined on the slopes of Whistler Creekside, men’s skicross finals at Cypress Mountain and women’s 1,500m long track speed skating at the Richmond Olympic Oval all hold Canadian medal possibilities.

9 p.m.

SWEDEN vs. FINLAND – Men’s Hockey

A rematch of the 2006 gold medal game from Turin caps off Super Sunday at Canada Hockey Place as the Swedes and Finns renew acquaintances, with first place in Group C and a bye to the quarter-finals on the line. Both teams enter the game with unblemished 2-0 records, and will trot out top-of-the-line goaltenders for the preliminary round finale – Henrik Lundqvist for Sweden and Miikka Kiprusoff for Finland – meaning two goals could be enough to earn the all-important win.

All Day

TEAM CANADA ALUMNI

Throughout the Games, various Team Canada alumni will be making appearances at Molson Canadian Hockey House. Here’s who is going to be on hand today:

Yvan Cournoyer

‘The Roadrunner’ won a remarkable 10 Stanley Cups during his illustrious NHL career, second only to former Habs teammate Henri Richard’s 11, and was a 1982 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee. Cournoyer only represented Canada on one occasion, but was front and centre for the greatest moment in Canadian hockey history when he assisted on ‘The Goal,’ Paul Henderson’s game winner late in Game 8 of the 1972 Summit Series.

Cam Neely

The Maple Ridge, B.C. native returns home to the Lower Mainland, where he began his career as a Vancouver Canuck before becoming one of the game’s greats with the Boston Bruins. Although he never represented Canada in international play, Neely was one of the country’s top players during his era, fully deserving of his 2005 enshrinement into the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Serge Savard

An eight-time Stanley Cup champion, Savard was one of the Montreal Canadiens’ ‘Big Three’ on the blue line, joining Larry Robinson and Guy Lapointe during the final Habs dynasty in the 1960s and 70s. A 1986 Hockey Hall of Fame inductee, Savard wore the red and white of Team Canada – in the 1972 Summir Series and at the 1976 Canada Cup – both victories for Canada.

Stan Smyl

A Vancouver hockey icon, ‘The Steamer’ was the first Canuck to have his number retired by the team, and he still works with the Canucks as a senior advisor to the general manager. His Team Canada career included the 1978 IIHF World Junior Championship, where he won a bronze medal on a team led by a 16-year-old Wayne Gretzky, and the 1985 IIHF World Championship, where he won silver.
