Game Day at the WJCs: USA vs. Canada--UPDATED

Team USA plays its final WJC preliminary round game against Canada on Tuesday at 11:30 a.m. U.S. is in first place in its Division at 3-0, while Canada is 2-1. The game airs lives on NHL Network and is being streamed live on nhl.com. The U.S. has already earned a spot in the medal round.  A win or tie against Canada would clinch first place in Group A and one of the two top seeds in the medal round, which begins on January 2.

Danny O'Regan, who sat out the 8-0 shut out of Germany as a precaution after an injury, is expected to return as center of Team USA's top line.

Episode 11 of Inside BU Hockey features Bernie Corbett's interviews with Head Coach David Quinn, senior forward Jake Moscatel and former Terrier defenseman David Warsofsky. Last week, Warsofsky made his NHL debut and scored first NHL goal. Check back later today for a link to this week's program.

Looking back 
Former Terrier and 2009 Hobey Baker finalist Colin Wilson scored twice, including the game-winner, and added an assist in Nashville's 6-4 win against Detroit. A first team All-American at BU, Wilson earned first-star honors for his three-point effort. 

Olympic gold medal goalie Jim Craig is "still making saves" according to the Sioux City Journal, following the former BU All-American's presentation to physicians about screening for abdominal aortic aneurysms, which took the life of his father, Donald.

USA Today's Kevin Allen reports his picks for the U.S. Olympic team, which includes former BU captain and All-American Kevin Shattenkirk.
