BRECLAV, Czech Republic -- Jansen Harkins, Jeremy Roy and Travis Konecny scored third-period goals to lead Canadas under-18 hockey team to a 7-5 pre-tournament victory over the Czech Republic on Saturday. Stephen Hauschka Jersey . The contest was Canadas lone tuneup heading into the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament, which begins Monday. The Canadians face Switzerland in their opening game in Piestany, Slovakia. Canada twice overcame a two-goal deficit to enter the third period tied 4-4. Harkins and Roy, on the power play, scored to put the Canadians ahead 6-4 before the Czechs countered with the man advantage to make it a one-goal game. But after Canada killed off two penalties -- which gave the Czechs a two-man power play for over a minute -- Konecny recorded the insurance goal at 14:51 of the period. Lawson Crouse had two goals for Canada while Mitchell Marner and Connor Hobbs had the others. Jakub Zboril scored twice for the Czechs. Martin Weinhold, Filip Suchy and Lukas Jasko added the other goals. Both teams switched goaltenders roughly at the midway point of the contest, with Zach Sawchenko taking over from starter Callum Booth in the Canadian net. The first shot Sawchenko faced was a penalty shot but Czech Roman Dymacek missed the net. The contest was the first for the Canadian team and head coach Jody Hull was impressed with the squads resiliency in overcoming the two-goal deficits. "Thats what impressed me," said Hull, the head coach of the OHLs Peterborough Petes. "There was no quit in our guys, they were vocal on the bench and once we started playing that down-low game we started to have some success and gained some momentum. "It was a bit of a learning curve. There are some things we know we have to work on and get better at but there were a lot of positives." A consistent challenge for Canada on the international stage is putting a team together that can come together quickly. And thats important, considering Saturdays game was the first of six over an eight-day span for the Canadians. Then again, 22 members of the squad have previous experience in Hockey Canadas Program of Excellence. "The biggest thing is trying to get all your systems across and what you want to do," Hull said. "When its all said and done theres only going to be like six practices where youre able to get your message across. "Its a lot of video and stuff but players in todays game are all visual learners. They pick it up pretty quick when were watching video but at the same time they also have a very high hockey IQ so theyre able to adjust relatively quickly." Konecny said one exhibition game is more than enough for the Canadian squad heading into the tournament. "We have to do what we have to do and work with the time we have," he said. "This gives us and our coaches stuff to work on and shows us what we need to improve on throughout the tournament. "Our objective as a team is to come together as fast as we can and prepare as fast as we can and gel and figure each other out and know the chemistry." Canada has won the annual summer tournament six consecutive years and 18 times overall since 91. It will play in Group B with Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland. The Czechs, Finland, Russia and U.S. will make up Group A and play out of Breclav. The top two teams from each group advance to the semifinals Aug. 15. The two winners face off in the gold medal game Aug. 16. Custom Buffalo Bills Jerseys . -- Officials have approved a deal to build a new $672 million stadium for the Atlanta Braves away from the downtown Atlanta area that has traditionally been its home. Jordan Matthews Jersey . While he was away, it was the division-rival Baltimore Orioles conducting a little business of their own, scooping up Ubaldo Jimenez on Monday evening to a reported four-year, $50-million contract. http://www.shoptheofficialbills.com/Elite-Tyrod-Taylor-Bills-Jersey/ . Johan Franzen had two goals and two assists, Gustav Nyquist a goal and three assists and David Legwand a goal and two assists in the Red Wings 7-4 win over the New Jersey Devils.(SportsNetwork.com) - The holiday shopping season is in full swing, but the Arizona Coyotes havent been able to buy a home victory in over a month. The Coyotes will try to prevent what is now a franchise-record losing streak at home from getting any longer on Saturday night as they take on the Minnesota Wild. Arizona set a new mark in home futility with Thursdays 5-1 setback to the Nashville Predators. That loss dropped the Coyotes to 0-6-2 in their past eight games at Gila River Arena, a franchise record that includes the clubs time as the original Winnipeg Jets. The Coyotes Antoine Vermette scored the games first goal, but netminder Mike Smith allowed five goals on 38 shots. Arizona has been outscored 19-5 over a season-high four-game slide and is 2-7-2 in its past 11. Its important for us to stick to our game regardless of whats going on and continue to push forward, said Coyotes forward Sam Gagner. Arizona, which has not won at home since Nov. 4, has now lost the first three of a five-game residency that ends on Tuesday versus Edmonton and will look to rebound from a loss that head coach Dave Tippett labeled as both frustrating and disappointing. I think theres a lot of guys in (the dressing room who) care and want to do better, added Tippett. Were not finding the results we want, so the frustration continues to build. But unttil we turn that frustration into mental resolve and getting the job done, more frustration will pile up. Kyle Williams Jersey. More frustration could be on tap tonight given that the Coyotes have lost three straight to the Wild, including a 2-0 setback in Minnesota on Oct. 23 in the first of three meetings this season. Smith made 27 saves, but the Wild got a 26-save effort from Darcy Kuemper in the shutout. Minnesota also has won its past three in Arizona and will try to bounce back from Thursdays 2-1 setback to the San Jose Sharks. The Wild were hoping to win consecutive games for the first time since a four-game run from Nov. 13-20 but instead have split their last 10 games overall. Kuemper made 28 saves versus the Sharks and defenseman Christian Folin netted his first NHL goal in his 12th career game. But San Jose struck back not long after that tally to keep control. We put ourselves in a winnable hockey game, Wild head coach Mike Yeo said. In the end, we just didnt do quite enough. Wild defenseman Marco Scandella served the first of his two-game suspension for an illegal check to the head on the New York Islanders Brock Nelson in the third period on Tuesday. Minnesota lost defenseman Keith Ballard indefinitely in the same game after he suffered facial fractures and a concussion on a scary hit along the mid-ice boards.
