MONTREAL — Eric Comrie is giving head coach Benoit Groulx a lot to mull over as Canadas world junior championship progresses.Comrie made 17 saves to earn the shutout in Canadas 4-0 defeat of Germany on Saturday at the Bell Centre in Montreal.Groulx now has two potential starting goaltenders — Comrie and Zach Fucale — who have each earned a shutout in Canadas first two games of the tournament. Fucale stopped all 12 shots he faced versus Slovakia on Friday before Comries performance against the Germans.He was good tonight, said Groulx of Comrie. Hes a very well-structured goalie. He competes hard, he was sound, and he feels very at ease on the ice. I liked his game a lot tonight, and obviously its going to be a tough decision that we have to make.He made key saves tonight, and hes playing with a lot of confidence. He made our decision more difficult.As Canada advances in the tournament, its opposition will become increasingly skilled. After games against Slovakia and Germany where Fucale and Comrie faced few shots — and many of them not terribly difficult — the Canadians take on defending-champions Finland and then the United States to wrap up preliminary play.Comrie and Fucale are both 19-year-olds with similar builds — they are the same height, but Comrie weighs slightly less. Comrie, who currently plays for the Tri-City Americans in the Western Hockey League, was drafted 59th overall in the 2013 NHL entry draft by the Winnipeg Jets. Fucale, recently traded to the Quebec Remparts of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, was chosen by the Montreal Canadiens 36th overall the same year.Although both goaltenders are fighting for a chance to lead Canada to its first gold medal at the juniors in six years, Comrie doesnt feel too much pressure as he competes with Fucale for top spot in the crease.Im just going out there and having fun, and playing in the moment, said Comrie, who was given the game puck by teammate Josh Morrissey on Saturday. If you think of it as a job interview, its not going to go so well. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to play in front of this crowd. Im just so excited to be on this team.Its a dream come true. Were both going for a gold medal, it doesnt matter whos playing.Comries WHL statistics this year — namely his save percentage and goal-against-average — are better than Fucales, overall. More importantly at this stage in the tournament, however, Canadas goaltenders have both shown they can compete on the world stage by stopping all the shots theyve faced so far.When you go into a tournament, you want to see how they play, how they react, and if one goalie is going to separate himself from the other one, said Groulx. Obviously, both of them have been very good.Groulxs first decision will be to name the next starting goalie when Canada welcomes the Finns to the Bell Centre on Monday. The Canadians have an off-day on Sunday.We want to sleep on it, and tomorrow well watch the game (against Germany), have meetings with our staff, and see where we go with that.Against the Germans on Saturday, Comrie stopped four shots in the first period, 10 shots in the second — Canadas weakest 20 minutes — and another three in the third en route to the shutout.Perhaps his biggest save came with less than five minutes remaining in the second period. With Canada ahead 2-0 and Samuel Morin in the penalty box for tripping, German defenceman Tim Bender caught Canada on a line change, and sent forward Marc Michaelis on a breakaway with a gorgeous stretch pass the length of the hockey rink.Michaelis tried to beat Comrie with a wrist shot blocker-side, but the Canadian netminder never lost sight of the puck.It was a good pass, said Comrie. He came in, shot on the ice. I dropped, made the save, and covered it up. Thats about it.Comries teammates think the goaltender battle between Comrie and Fucale is nothing but good news for Canada going forward.When you have two goalies with confidence going into the next game, theres not much more you can ask for, said defenceman Shea Theodore. Theyre both good goalies and theyre playing real hot right now.Added captain Curtis Lazar: Were comfortable with whatever goalie is in our net. Eric and Zach do a great job for us back there and were going to need that to continue.Notes: Germany coach Pat Cortina was born in Montreal. … Last year, Canada opened its tournament with a 7-2 victory over the Germans. … The tournament-favourite Canadians are undefeated (13-0) all-time against the Germans at the world juniors, outscoring them 71-18. … Germany is ranked 13th in the world.

Authentic Air Jordan From China .C. - Nick Merkley and Damon Severson each had a goal and two assists as the Kelowna Rockets downed the visiting Seattle Thunderbirds 6-3 on Saturday in Western Hockey League playoff action.WASHINGTON -- Alex Ovechkins absence added to the Washington Capitals offensive woes and the Ottawa Senators were only too glad to take advantage. Kyle Turris and Jason Spezza scored, Craig Anderson made 34 saves and the Senators beat the Capitals 2-0 Tuesday night to hand Washington its sixth straight loss. With NHL scoring leader Ovechkin out with an unspecified lower-body injury, Washington failed to convert on five power plays. During their six-game skid, the Capitals have scored just seven goals, three of them by Ovechkin. "Yeah, hes absolutely a dangerous goal scorer, leading our team and leading the league in goals," Washingtons Troy Brouwer said. "Wed love to have him out there, but we dont have him right now. Even when he was in the lineup the last few games we still havent been scoring goals." In Ovechkins absence, some of Washingtons other offensive threats were silent. Nicklas Backstrom and Mikhail Grabovski had one shot each. Defenceman John Carlson whiffed on a promising slap shot, fired high on another and was stymied by Anderson on a breakaway. "Their goalie played well, but we had a lot of guys with some really good looks, good chances," Washington coach Adam Oates said. "We have to score some goals. I would say the chances were good chances tonight, and we had a lot of them. It is a matter of finishing." It was the 12th loss in the last 15 games for the Capitals, while Ottawa improved to 7-1-2 in its last 10 games to vault Washington in the Eastern Conference standings. Turris scored his 15th of the year with just over 7 minutes left in the second period when he converted on a rush down the right side. Spezza scored his 13th goal on a power play midway through the third period, rifling a wrist shot from the left wing that went just inside the near post and past Caapitals goalie Braden Holtby, who finished with 24 saves in first start since Jan.dddddddddddd4. As they tried to rally, the Capitals didnt get their customary boost from their fans. The Verizon Center, which regularly sells out, was less than half full because of a snowstorm that closed schools and shut down the government Tuesday. "Its a building where they are notorious for coming back and getting momentum," Spezza said. "So to get the two-goal lead lets us play a little different style and with a little more confidence. I thought we played better with the lead tonight in general." It was the 32-year-old Andersons third shutout this year and 25th in his career. He was at his best in the third period when he sprawled for a save to help the Senators kill a penalty and later kicked away a drive by Marcus Johansson. "We played really well for 60 minutes," Anderson said. "From the start of the game to the end of the game we did things we were supposed to do." Washingtons frustration appeared to spill over late in the game when Grabovski received a 10-minute misconduct penalty during a tussle with Zack Smith. "I want the guys to compete and be frustrated," Oates said. "But you cant live in the penalty box. Were not doing a good enough job killing penalties. So that doesnt make sense, either. But I want them to fight for everything we can." NOTES: The Capitals recalled Nate Schmidt to fortify the defence after Steve Oleksy was sent to Hershey and John Erskine sustained an upper-body injury. Schmidt, 22, opened the year in Washington, totalling six points in 28 games. ... The move came a day after Washington sent goalie Philipp Grubauer back to Hershey. The rookie had been pulled from his previous two starts. ... The Capitals play their next five games on the road.
