Matt Duchene, who’s replacing healthy-scratch Patrick Sharp in the lineup, will start alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Patrick Marleau moves to Jonathan Toews and Rick Nash’s line.

Jamie Benn, Carter, John Tavares and Patrice Bergeron could all split time on the fourth line.

On defence, the only change is P.K. Subban in for Dan Hamhuis. It’s possible Subban takes Sharp’s spot at one of the points on Canada’s second power-play unit.

Roberto Luongo starts in goal for Canada, with Mike Smith serving as the backup. Carey Price is scratched after beating Norway.
