MINSK, Belarus - Canadas Ben Scrivens will start against Denmark and may have an opportunity to claim the No. Gabi Camiseta . 1 goaltender job at the world hockey championship. The Edmonton Oilers netminder allowed one goal on 24 shots in beating Slovakia on Saturday in the first international game of his career. James Reimer of the Toronto Maple Leafs stopped 57 of the 62 shots he faced in his two games: a shootout loss to France and a victory over the Czech Republic. Coach Dave Tippett said he didnt know if those goaltenders split the next two games, given that Canada plays back-to-back against Denmark and then Italy on Friday. "They each got two, well revisit tomorrow night," Tippett said after Wednesdays practice at Chizhovka-Arena. Justin Peters of the Carolina Hurricanes is the third goaltender on the roster. Tippett hasnt revealed if the veteran would get a start in Minsk. Despite two days off since holding on to beat the Czechs on Monday, Tippett was insistent his team get two practices in before getting back into game action. He was satisfied with what got accomplished as far as teaching and learning. "We got some good work in, just a little bit of tactical stuff, a little bit of special-teams stuff," Tippett said. "Its a good couple days, and now we jump into back-to-back games." After three games, Canada is in second place in Group A with seven points. Sweden, which is undefeated but needed a shootout to beat the Czech Republic, is in first with eight points. On paper, Denmark and Italy arent the biggest challenges for Canada, but an opening loss to France showed players nothing is guaranteed at this tournament. Tippett said those teams like to keep it tight and are hard to play against. But with a roster of all NHL players, the next couple results likely hinge more on how Canada plays. Its Tippetts hope that his team is better than it was in the third period against the Czech Republic, when it almost let a three-goal lead slip away. "We got to do a much better job with the puck and holding the puck," he said. "We had so many turnovers, even in the offensive zone. We didnt give ourselves a chance to play in the offensive zone. I thought, actually, our defending was decent — we just defended too much." With that in mind, Vancouver Canucks defenceman Jason Garrison pointed to offensive-zone play as an area of focus the past two days. What made Canadas Sochi Olympic team so good defensively was being on the attack so often, and its a recipe this group would like to replicate. "I think its just learning how to play that style (on the big ice)," Garrison said. "Theres a couple different things that were being taught out here, and its helping out. Its helping the forwards kind of gain possession and keep possession in the offensive zone and then it leads to scoring chances instead of just one (shot) and out." The Canadians were outshot 34-20 by the Czech Republic and could thank Reimer for keeping them in the game early and saving them late. Two power-play goals thanks to a five-minute major on Czech forward Jan Kovar for slashing Canadian captain Kevin Bieksa helped, but after also giving up another goal on the penalty kill, special teams is an area of emphasis, as well. "We scored a couple power-play goals, but we obviously couldve capitalized a lot more," Nashville Predators defenceman Ryan Ellis said. "I think that and the PK are going to be big parts of our game moving forward, and our penalty kill I think weve let a goal in every game, so I think thats something were going to have to kind of shore up here and really bear down. Obviously staying out of the box is a big part of that, but when we do get down, just killing them off." Canada has a tournament-worst 60 per cent success rate on the penalty kill and is just 3 for 16 on the power play. Players also worked on the shootout at the end of Wednesdays practice. Kyle Turris, Sean Monahan and Matt Read — the three best percentage shooters on the team based on this past regular season — went 0-for-3 against Frances Cristobal Huet last week. NOTES — Denmark features four NHL players in defenceman Philip Larsen of the Oilers, forwards Jannik Hansen and Nicklas Jensen of the Canucks and winger Mikkel Boedker of the Phoenix Coyotes. Miguel Angel Moya Camiseta . They sure powered their way past this latest deficit. Carlos Gomez hit a three-run homer against his former team to spark the comeback for the Brewers in an 8-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. Nicolas Gaitan Camiseta Atletico De Madrid . CATHARINES, Ont. http://www.atleticodemadridtienda.es/camiseta-atletico-de-madrid-juanfran.html . PAUL, Minn.SAN FRANCISCO -- Tim Hudson has spent most of the season leading the San Francisco Giants to victories. This time, his teammates backed him up on a rare off night. Michael Morse hit an RBI single with one out in the ninth inning after Hunter Pences tying double, and the Giants rallied to beat the New York Mets 5-4 Saturday night to extend baseballs best record. "It just tells you what kind of team we have," said Morse, who helped teammates tear off his jersey during a wild celebration on the infield. "We find a way." Angel Pagan had three singles, two RBIs and got on base all five times against his former team. He reached leading off the ninth when catcher Anthony Recker dropped the third strike and his throw pulled Lucas Duda off first base. Mets manager Terry Collins challenged the play but lost. Pence hit a double that scored Pagan and advanced to third on Buster Poseys deep fly to left-centre. After Jenrry Mejia (1-2) intentionally walked Pablo Sandoval, Morse sent a single to deep right and was mobbed by teammates before he reached second. San Francisco improved to 6-0 at home when Hudson starts. "Im as proud of this game as I have been of any of them," said Hudson, who allowed season highs of nine hits and three walks in five innings. "Even though it was probably my worst game from a pitching standpoint, these kinds of games are very satisfying because these are the games that most of the time your teams lose when your starting pitcher goes out there and doesnt really have his stuff. We were able to battle and win. Thats the mark of a championship club." It was Mejias first blown save in seven chances. The Mets have lost five straight. Jeremy Affeldt (2-1) tossed one scoreless inning to help the Giants (41-21) win for the ninth time in 11 games. Bartolo Colon gave up three runs -- one earned -- and eight hits in 5 2-3 innings for the Mets. The 41-year-old, who spent the past two seasons across the bay in Oakland, struck out four and walked two. Hudson, who began the game witth a majors-best 1. Yannick Carrasco Camiseta Atletico De Madrid. 5 ERA, is the first pitcher in San Francisco history with an ERA below 2.00 through his first 12 starts with the team. Even with the tough outing, Hudsons ERA is 1.97. The Mets grabbed leads of 3-0 and 4-1, but stranded 12 runners on base. "We did a good job of limiting the damage," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. The Mets ended Hudsons scoreless streak at 16 consecutive innings in the second, when Duda doubled and scored on Reckers single. In the third, Duda broke his bat hitting an RBI single off the wall in right and Recker drove in another run to give the Mets a 3-0 lead. The Mets might have had more if not for a baserunning blunder. Ruben Tejada was tagged out between second and third after Duda stopped at third and Recker ran to second. With the bases loaded and no outs in the fifth, Posey grounded into a double play to score San Franciscos first run. Colon then got Sandoval to fly out. New York extended its lead to 4-1 on a wild pitch by George Kontos in the sixth, but couldnt overcome an error by third baseman David Wright in the bottom of the inning. Wright fielded a grounder and misfired to second trying to get the lead runner with two outs. Pagan followed with a two-run single to bring the Giants within 4-3 and chase Colon. Pences single loaded the bases for Posey again, but Jeurys Familia struck out Posey on a sinking fastball clocked at 96 mph. NOTES: Giants reliever Santiago Casilla, who is on the disabled list with a strained right hamstring, threw 30 pitches in the bullpen. He is scheduled to throw again before Mondays game and could begin a rehab assignment as soon as Wednesday. ...
