MALMO, Sweden -- Canada has moved into the big rink and goalie Zach Fucale expects big pressure will come with it at the world junior hockey championship. The Canadian squad, which has been based at the smaller, 5,800-seat Isstadion facility since the start of the tournament, held its first practice Friday at the 11,618-seat Malmo Arena. The snazzy, modern venue will be where Canada faces Finland in semifinal action Saturday. The winner will face either Sweden or Russia in the tournament finale there Sunday. "The stakes are getting higher and higher and guys will be battling harder," said Fucale. "At this level, every detail counts. "Everyone will be killing themselves for the win." Canada will be looking to erase the memory of last years semifinal loss to the United States in Ufa, Russia. That resulted in the Canadians not winning a medal in this event for the first time since 1998. Canada faces a Finnish side that hasnt won a medal in eight years, although the squad reached the tournament semifinals two years ago. The Finns, who overcame a 3-1 deficit to beat the Czech Republic 5-3 in the quarter-finals, are a dangerous team. They not only have a top goalie in Juuse Saros but also some dandy snipers led by Chicago Blackhawks prospect Teuvo Teravainen, who has nine assists and is plus-7 in five games. Finland also boasts defenceman Rasmus Ristolainen, on loan from the Buffalo Sabres. Canadian coach Brent Sutter isnt taking the Finns lightly. "I see a hard-working team, a team thats very structured, a team thats going to play some North American hockey," said Sutter. "Theyre a gritty group. "Theyve been getting decent goaltending. Theyve got three forwards on their team that are as good as any forwards in this tournament. Theyre going to come hard and we have to be ready for it." Canada beat Finland twice in exhibition games this year, once in the summer at Lake Placid, N.Y., and again Dec. 20 in Sweden, where they dominated the final two periods after Fucale gave up two questionable goals in the first. The Finns are confident they can pull off an upset. "We have a good team and we have a good chance to win," said Saros. "Were going to do a prevent style to get that game. "Were going to have good team spirit and our power plays pretty good. I think those things will be important." And he expects a physical game, especially around his net. "They like to play in the corners and they come to the goal -- three, four players come to the goal -- so I have to be awake," he said. Actually, the Finnish power play has registered just four goals in 22 chances (18.1 per cent). But two key players -- Ristolainen (flu) and Artturi Lehkonen (leg injury) -- each missed two games before returning to face the Czechs. Finlands penalty kill has been impressive, allowing only one goal on 21 chances (95.2 per cent). Canadas power play has clicked on 7-of-24 chances (29.1 per cent). Sutter has stressed discipline, which got away from his team when it took three minor penalties in the third period of a 4-1 win over Switzerland in the quarter-finals. Canada earned the "easier" route to the final when it beat the Americans in the preliminary round to take first place in its group. But the team cant afford to waste that with an upset loss against the Finns. Sutter has underlined concentrating on one game at a time, which defenceman Griffin Reinhart said may have been a problem in last years semifinal. "Our focus is on this game," he said. "Maybe last year we got a little bit ahead of ourselves. "Its tough. Youve got to treat every game like a Game 7. I dont think its anybodys intention, but nobody really stressed taking it one day at a time (last year) and thats what you really need to do at this tournament. You cant get caught looking ahead." All teams have players hurting, including Canada. Reinharts defence partner, Mattew Dumba, and forward Charles Hudon sat out practice Friday. Dumba came up limping after a collision late in the second against the Swiss while Hudon has been playing through a shoulder injury suffered a week ago against Slovakia. Sutter expects both will play against Finland. "Maintenance day for both those guys," he said. Sutter doesnt see the venue change making a big difference either. "Its irrelevant where youre playing the game," said Sutter. "Its played on the same size of ice. "We just have to do what we need to do to give ourselves the best chance." It will also be a move for the few thousand red-and-white clad Canadian fans who jammed the Isstadion, giving it a home-game feel for Canadas team. They will likely make up the majority of the crowd against Finland although they may get drowned out if Canada advances to the final against Sweden. The Swedes, who played at Malmo Arena in the round robin, have averaged 11,278 spectators per game. "It was crazy at the other rink," said Fucale. "It was almost a home game. "I felt as if I was in Canada. Its really cool that this happens. You can feel their support. Theyll certainly help us over the next couple of games." Jon Ryan Seahawks Jersey. The team let Keaton Ellerby, James Wright and Matt Halischuk become unrestricted free agents after declining to make them qualifying offers. Ellerby, 25, appeared in 51 games for the Jets last season and had two goals and four assists. Steve Largent Seahawks Jersey. According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Maple Leafs have trade offers on the table for the 26-year-old, but none have been deemed acceptable by the team. http://www.seahawksfansprostore.com/Black-Marshawn-Lynch-Seahawks-Jersey.html?cat=949.Y. - Joe Johnson hit six 3-pointers in his 27 points, Mason Plumlee added 18 points, and the Brooklyn Nets won their 11th straight at home, beating the Boston Celtics 114-98 Friday night.

Jeremy Lane Seahawks Jersey.C. -- Benn Ferrieros familiar with scoring important goals, just not in back-to-back games. OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Golden State Warriors are taking another chance on a television analyst and former NBA guard who has never been a head coach at any level. The Warriors won the bidding war with the New York Knicks for Steve Kerr on Wednesday, hiring him away from the TNT broadcast table to be their coach. Kerr agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal with Golden State, said his agent, Mike Tannenbaum. The Warriors confirmed the agreement Wednesday night and said they will introduce Kerr at a news conference after the contract is complete. Kerr had been in talks with the Knicks about becoming their coach since Phil Jackson took over as team president in March. He won three titles playing for Jackson in Chicago and another two under Gregg Popovich in San Antonio. Kerr told NBA.com, which first reported the agreement, that going to Golden State "just felt like the right move on many levels." He said his daughter plays volleyball nearby at the University of California, Berkeley, his oldest son is in college in San Diego and his youngest son is a junior in high school. Kerr called the offer to coach the Knicks a "tantalizing" opportunity. He said it was "agonizing" to say no to Jackson "because of what I think of him and what hes done for my career." "I told Phil, I think I have to pursue this other opportunity," Kerr told the website. "He gave me his blessing. He said. Go look at it, and do what was in my heart." Kerr, 48, said last month that he has wanted to coach since stepping down after three seasons as general manager of the Phoenix Suns in June 2010. And while the lure of rebuilding a flagship franchise with his mentor at Madison Square Garden looked appealing, the chance to coach a Western Conference contender in his home state proved to be too much. Kerr replaces Mark Jackson, who was fired by the Warriors on May 6 after three seasons and back-to-back playoff appearances -- mostly due to a sour relationship between him and team management. The Warriors job is certainly a far more attractive one than when owner Joe Lacob hired Jackson away from the ESPN/ABC broadcast table in June 2011. The Warriors are coming off a 51-win season and consecutive playoff appearances for the first time in 20 years, and theyve surrounded star Stephen Curry with a talented young core.dddddddddddd Kerr became the hottest coaching candidate on the market after Phil Jackson started courting him to the Knicks. Kerr also has close ties to Lacob, his son, assistant GM Kirk Lacob, and Warriors President Rick Welts, who worked in Phoenixs front office during Kerrs time as Suns general manager. Given the tension that built between Jackson and Warriors management last season -- and the back-and-forth that played out between them in the media after Jackson was dismissed -- having an established relationship with Kerr was a big reason Lacob wanted him as coach. Lacob lauded Kerr as a candidate last week and defended the decision to change coaches -- which has been debated at great lengths in the basketball-united Bay Area. He compared the decision to how he built his fortune as a venture capitalist in Silicon Valley. Lacob said theres a different person to lead a business at different stages of development, and the Warriors have gone from a "startup" company to an organization looking to maximize its output. "Or in this case win an NBA championship," he said. "And we just felt overall we needed a different person to go forward and get to the next level." And while Kerr has no coaching experience, he played 15 seasons and -- also similar to Mark Jackson -- has been around some of the most successful sideline leaders. Kerr has credited Phil Jackson and Tex Winter for most of his basketball knowledge. Winter taught the triangle offence -- which Kerr would not commit to running with the Warriors -- and was a longtime assistant for Jackson, who used the system to win an NBA-record 11 championships as a coach of the Bulls and Lakers. Golden State also spoke with former Orlando Magic and Miami Heat coach Stan Van Gundy during its search. Van Gundy agreed to a $35 million, five-year deal with Detroit on Tuesday after the Pistons also gave him control of basketball operations -- something the Warriors wouldnt do with general manager Bob Myers and Kirk Lacob in place. The Warriors met with Kerr again on Tuesday night in Oklahoma City, where Kerr was calling the Thunder-Clippers game. And they apparently made a big enough impression -- and contract offer -- to land the man they wanted all along. Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
