Canada's opening day 5-3 victory over Russia showed us a couple of things. For starters, this year's Team Canada has a real shot at competing. The team is structured well with a team-based approach in their systems and having all five players on the same page while on the ice. The game also displayed the immense skill that Canada possesses. Dylan Strome, Tyson Jost, Matthew Barzal and Pierre Luc Dubois, among others, have the traits to become dominant players for Canada.
While Canada did pull off a convincing victory over Russia, no indications have been made as to who will be the team's starting goaltender moving forward. Tonight, Connor Ingram will take the reigns from Connor Hart and start between the pipes as Canada faces off against Slovakia.
Puck drop is slated for 8pm ET and you can catch tonight's game and all the World Junior action on TSN.

Having two starting calibre goalies sharing one goalie crease is a great dilemma to have in the NHL. But down the road, it may not be much of a luxury, rather a problem, for the Pittsburgh Penguins.
With the assembling of the Las Vegas NHL team penciled in for next June, the Penguins can only protect one of their two goaltenders and if one of their goalies is left unprotected, the Penguins are almost guaranteed to lose whoever they don't protect. Pittsburgh won't want to be faced with that decision in the first place when the expansion draft arises. The only solution to avoid losing a goalie for nothing; Either Marc-Andre Fleury or Matt Murray would have to be traded before the expansion draft.
