It's a replay of Canada's first match of the games on Feb. 8, when they got past the Swiss team with a 5-0 shutout. Wickenheiser notched Canada's third goal in that game.

Today's game starts at 11 a.m. CST.

Lyndon Rush is back in action with the two-man bobsleigh event. Rush and teammate Lascelles Brown of Calgary had their first two of four runs Sunday.

In their first run, Rush and Brown posted a time of 56:61, good enough for seventh. They dropped to ninth after their second run, which brought them to an overall time of  1:53:48 .

Rush and Brown's final two runs are scheduled for approximately 8:30 and 10:05 a.m. CST on Monday.

After today's two-man bobsleigh action, Rush will be back on the track Feb. 22 and Feb. 23 in the four-man bobsleigh.
