The world cup continues to roll on for Team Canada today, as they will face Team Europe for the first time in the tournament. As of this morning, the two teams sit tied atop Group A in the standings, and are fighting to see who can hold on to that spot as the group stage comes to a close.

Europe has been somewhat of a dark horse in the group. They took out the Americans in a bit of a shocking 3-0 win to open their tournament, and followed that up with a thrilling 3-2 overtime win over the Czech Republic.

But now, they have to face the powerhouse Canadians.

Canada opened their tournament in dominant fashion, obliterating the Czech Republic 6-0. Then they faced the Americans, their continental rivals, and picked up right where they left off. With a convincing 4-2 win, they eliminated the USA from contention, staying perfect in the process.

Carey Price will not get the start for Canada. They have elected to give him a rest seeing as they will advance regardless of the result. The former Canadien, Jaroslav Halak, is expected to get the start for Europe.

The puck drops at 8:00 PM EDT, at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario.
