Olympic Hockey 2014: Biggest Takeaways from Day 5 of Men's Tournament

With coaches having one final game to tune up their teams before the qualification/medal rounds, line juggling and goalie changes took center stage. Canada continue to dig for the right combination for Sidney Crosby, while the United States made a change in goal.

All told, we have plenty to consider as we move toward the "money" part of the tournament, which begins on February 18.
