Canada-Russia showdown at Canada Hockey Place today

This generation’s equivalent of the summit series continues today when Team Canada skates onto the ice at Canada Hockey Place to take on Russia at 4:30 p.m.

Russia shut out Canada 2-0 at the Turin Olympics in 2006. Canada is after more than just redemption today — a loss would mean no chance at a podium finish.

Also this afternoon, Clara Hughes, Canada’s flag-bearer at the opening ceremonies skates in the 5,000-metre race at the Richmond Oval at 1 p.m.

Later at 6:10 p.m. Canadians Kaillie Humphries and Helen Upperton take their final two runs in women’s bobsleigh at the Whistler Sliding Centre.
