This morning Scott Wedgewood is named as the starting goalie for tonight's game against the USA. He's earned the start with his play and now basically the job is his to lose. After two losses this game doesn't mean anything in the standings for Group B as Canada has now secured the bye to the semi-finals, but the Americans will still to play hard because well it's a game against Canada. And three losses in a row will just bring on more criticism for the players.

But what is an awesome side story is this story in The Province (originally in the Edmonton Journal) involving Wedgewood, a twitter follower and getting a new laptop.

Yeah that's right.

If you are too lazy to click on the link, here is the gist: After tweeting that his laptop is dying, a twitter follower of his tweeted back a sale that deal that Future Shop was having. Jokingly Wedgewood tweets "Want to buy it for me? #greatlyappreciated".

And the response was “Give me a shipping address,” “Consider it a playing for Canada gift although my 11 year old goalie son would love an autograph.”

The computer then showed up to the team hotel on December 29th.

Puck drop for this game is 4:30pm. Go Canada
