    Canada and Finland meet in the World Cup of Hockey championship game tonight in Toronto, with questions surrounding Canada's starting goaltender starting to diminish.



    Martin Brodeur, who missed the semifinal with a sprained wrist, practiced for the second stright day Tuesday morning and looks ready to go.



    ``I'm pretty certain he'll play,'' Canadian coach Pat Quinn said Tuesday. ``He looked good in practice.''



    Roberto Luongo, who started for Brodeur in the semifinals against the Czech Republic, told the media on Sunday that he is preparing to play in the final - just in case.





    Brodeur hinted after Monday's workout, though, that he would be ready for the final.



    ``It was the first time in five or six days I was able to use it,'' Brodeur said. ``I was really happy with the way I felt (Monday) morning. I just don't know how it's going to react throughout the day.



    ``But if it feels the same way that it felt today, then I think I'll be fine.''


    woohoo :banana:

    a 95 % brodeur is better than a 100 % a bit rusty Luongo :)

    The best goalie in the world is once again between the pipes. I am so confident with him back there, it's a weird feeling being a Flyers fan, i almost forgot what a stable and consistent goalie felt like.

    Yeah... As a Canucks fan you get a real sense about what we've missed for pretty much the whole existence of the franchise. Not to take anything away from McLean or the King, but they really just excelled for a short periods of time (ie runs to the cup finals), and they were certainly never as consistantly dependable.

    Cloutier.... sigh.
