USA hockey will be without one of their defenseman Friday as they take on Team Canada in Sochi. Pittsburgh Penguins' D-man Paul Martin will not play - there have been conflicting reports as to why, some reporting he has an illness.
The defense pairings will look like this: Fowler-Shattenkirk; Orpik-Carlson; Suter-McDonagh; Faulk.
Here is the forward group: Brown-Backes-Callahan; Parise-Kesler-Kane; JVR-Pavelski-Kessel; Pacioretty-Stastny-Oshie; Wheeler.
For the Canadians, John Tavares is out with a knee injury. Colorado Avalanche forward Matt Duchane will fill in his spot.
In goal, Jonathan Quick takes on Carey Price.
The winner of USA/Canada gets a spot in the Gold medal game.
