Team Canada has already clinched a spot in the World Cup semifinals.

But as they prepare to play in the second half of a back-to-back situation, Canadian head coach Mike Babcock has made some changes to his lineup for Wednesday’s game against Team Europe.

Both teams are 2-0. Both are moving on to the next round. The winner tonight determines who wins Group A.

It was already reported yesterday that goalie Carey Price will have the night off, while Corey Crawford starts in goal.

On Wednesday, it was revealed defenseman Shea Weber and forward Ryan Getzlaf will also sit, according to multiple reports (here and here). Jake Muzzin and Claude Giroux will enter into the lineup.
