MONTREAL — Five things to watch as Canada continues its road to gold in the world junior hockey championship on Saturday with a game against Germany:Avoiding complacency — The Germans, ranked 13th in the world, are Canadas weakest group-stage opposition. Dmitry Kulikov Jets Jersey . Last year, Canada opened its tournament with a 7-2 victory over the Germans, who ultimately scored just seven goals in their four round-robin games. The German national team has never finished higher than fifth at a world junior tournament. As in any David-and-Goliath matchup, Canada will need to stay focused and avoid complacency to ensure victory.Goal fest — If Canada can remain level-headed, its fans can expect a slew of goals from the red-and-white. The tournament-favourite Canadians are undefeated (12-0) all-time against the Germans at the world juniors, outscoring them 67-18.Captain Canada — Ottawa Senators rookie Curtis Lazar will look to use his 27 games of NHL experience to lead Canada back to the gold-medal game. Lazar, one of seven returning players from last years tournament in Malmo, Sweden, was named team captain earlier this week. A game against Germany could be exactly what the 19-year-old needs to spark linemates Connor McDavid and Nick Ritchie — a trio that will need to get hot if Canada hopes to be successful against tougher opposition down the road.North American experience — The German roster boasts a few players who have played hockey in Canada and the United States. Perhaps the most dangerous will be Dominik Kahun, who played two seasons with the Sudbury Wolves of the Ontario Hockey League. The 19-year-old winger, competing in his third world juniors, led Germany with seven points (three goals, four assists) at last years tournament.Cortinas homecoming — Saturdays game will be very special for German coach Pat Cortina, who was born in Montreal. After years coaching the Italian and Hungarian mens national teams, Cortina is now in his third year at the helm of the German organization — at both the senior and junior levels. Cortina has the formidable task of leading Germanys under-20 squad to the podium for the first time in its history. Mathieu Perreault Jets Jersey .J. - The New York Jets have signed former Green Bay Packers backup quarterback Graham Harrell, giving them some added depth at the position. Dustin Byfuglien Jets Jersey . -- Joe Thornton scored the tiebreaking goal with 5:39 left in regulation to help the San Jose Sharks overcome a two-goal deficit to beat the Pittsburgh Penguins 5-3 on Thursday night. http://www.jetsauthentic.com/authentic-l...ts-jersey/ .C. -- The Edmonton Oilers used a late-power-play goal to get a hard-fought road victory.MINNEAPOLIS -- Staring down the wrong end of history, the Minnesota Twins would much rather have seen a pitcher other than Jered Weaver, who no-hit them in 2012 and dominated them most recently on July 24. Yet the Twins did just enough against their nemesis to beat the Los Angeles Angels 6-3 on Monday night, ending a 10-game home losing streak and avoiding the worst such skid since the franchise started in Washington in 1901. "We all know weve lost a few ballgames in a row here at home," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "The people that showed up here were rooting pretty hard, and our guys were playing pretty hard, too. Big win." Only 21,826 were officially registered as paying customers, the smallest crowd since Target Field opened for the 2010 season. Fewer than that actually showed up on a hot, humid night, but they saw Trevor Plouffe go 2 for 3 and drive in the tying and go-ahead runs, and rookie Josmil Pinto hit three doubles. Casey Fien (4-2) struck out two in a scoreless seventh for the victory, and Glen Perkins pitched the ninth for his 33rd save in 37 chances. Plouffes two-run, two-out double in the fifth inning off Weaver tied the game 3-3, and his bases-loaded sacrifice fly off Cory Rasmus (0-1) in the seventh made it 4-3. Plouffe, hitting .329 in 21 games since Aug. 18, had a 2-2 count when he dumped a line drive into short centre field to score Pinto and Ryan Doumit in the fifth. He entered the game hitting .182 (2 for 11) in 14 plate appearances against Weaver. "Youve got a good pitcher on the hill there thats really had our number," Plouffe said. "He got two strikes on me, then its just battle mode. Hes got that good cutter and changes speeds on it. I was kind of looking for that, trying to lay off the pitch he rides up and in on me. I was able to get enough bat on the ball to get it out there." "I made a pretty good pitch to Plouffe there, and he kind of stuck out his bat and hit it up the middle," Weaver said. "Sometimes youre going to get guys out and sometimes youre not." Plouffe added a sacrifice fly to medium right field in the seventh. Kole Calhoun made a nice throw home, but Brian Dozier slipped his hand under the tag of catcher Chris Iannetta. Playing a makeup game for an April 17 rainout, the Angels continue their longest trip of the season -- nine games -- on Tuesday in Toronto. They also play three-game series at Houston and Oakland. Weaver made his fourth straight quality start for the Angels, allowing three earrned runs, nine hits and two walks in six innings. Bryan Little Jets Jersey. In their last meeting, the Twins managed just two hits over eight innings in a 1-0 loss on July 24, and then there was the no-hitter on May 2, 2012. The right-hander entered Mondays game with an 8-2 record and 3.28 ERA in 14 career starts against Minnesota. "I started to tighten up there in the third or fourth and got through the sixth, and (manager Mike) Scioscia didnt want to push me anymore, which is understandable," Weaver said. "Its nothing concerning, just the hot-and-humid air and losing a lot of fluids and stuff. It just started to tighten up a little bit, but its not a concern." Rasmus (0-1) loaded the bases in the seventh on a walk, a fielders choice and a single before Plouffes sacrifice fly. Pedro Florimon drew a bases-loaded walk off Buddy Boshers to drive in another run, and Doumit capped it with an RBI single in the eighth. On the way to a third straight 90-loss season, the Twins werent eager to set another futility record. They already have broken the teams season record for strikeouts (1,222 and counting), so avoiding a 114-year record for a home losing streak has to be a relief. "I knew we hadnt been playing well, and its a concern for us, obviously," Plouffe said. "We want to win as many games as possible, even if were out of (playoff contention). Its just who we are as a team; were not just going to lie down." NOTES: After the game, the Angels optioned INF Tommy Field to Triple-A Salt Lake, which starts a playoff series against Omaha on Tuesday. ... Angels 2B Howie Kendrick, out since Aug. 6 because of a hyperextended left knee, could be available as soon as Tuesday in Toronto, Scioscia said. Kendrick was injured after colliding with a teammate while chasing a pop fly. ... The Angels recalled C John Hester before Tuesday nights game. ... With his RBI double in the fourth, has an RBI in 12 of his past 13 games. ... The Twins will use a six-man rotation for the final month of the season, Gardenhire said. They added September callup LHP Scott Diamond to the rotation. ... The Twins added Diamond, INF Eduardo Escobar, OF/1B Chris Parmelee, RHP Shairon Martis and C Eric Fryer to the expanded roster after Rochester lost its International League playoff series on Sunday. To make room on the roster, the Twins placed RHP Samuel Deduno (shoulder) and OF Wilkin Ramirez (broken leg). ... Twins C Joe Mauer, on the DL because of a concussion suffered Aug. 19, took batting practice. ' ' '
