Victorious Canadian speedskaters optimistic about their hockey brethren

After beating the United States in the long-track speedskating team pursuit final, Canada's men were hoping the hockey team could repeat the feat in Sunday's gold-medal game.

Denny Morrison, Mathieu Giroux and Lucas Makowsky were actually pretty confident about it.

"For sure Canada wins," said Morrison.

Giroux: "I think with (Roberto) Luongo in the net, I think we're just going to destroy the States."

Makowsky was a bit more diplomatic.

"We had a nice U.S.-Canada battle on the ice today and we're going to have another one and hopefully we have the same result," he said.


Long-track speedskater Denny Morrison sported his Team Canada hockey jersey shortly after helping Canada's pursuit team win gold Saturday, and he's hoping people take an interest in it.

"I'm going to get my teammates to sign the jersey with me and hopefully auction it off, either by silent auction or EBay or something and then donate the funds to KidSport Canada," he said after the race.

The charity supports children who can't afford to play organized sports.
