Sidney Crosby and Team Canada back in action tonight

Canada looks to bounce back from Sunday's 5-3 loss to U-S-A  as they take on Germany tonight at 7:30.  Roberto Luongo will get the start in net and hope to regain a little faith from a country that was obviously rattled after this past weekend's results.  Sid will likely remain on the top line but I don't recall (read: can't find the tweet) that says who his linemates will be.  I think I remember seeing Jarome Iginla listed as one, but don't quote me on that. 

Germany is 0-3 so far in Olympic play and were shutout in the first two games; a 2-0 loss to Sweden and 5-0 loss to Finland.  In their most recent game, Saturday against Belarus, they did manage to light the lamp three times but still lost 5-3.

I'll hardly ever go as far as to say this one is a lock for Canada but I think it's safe to say that the level of competition following Sunday's game will drop off dramatically. 

Edit: I forgot to mention, if (or when) Canada defeats Germany, the next round will pin Canada vs. Russia in the first non-scrimmage Sid vs. Geno matchup.  The US will play the winner of Switzerland vs. Belarus, a game you can catch today at 3:00 EST.

On a final note, I tossed up a story over at From the Rink with regards to commercials and content during the Olympics.  Give it a read if you'd like and jump in and join (or start) the banter with a comment of your own.
