MINSK, Belarus -- Ben Scrivens will start in goal for Team Canada against Finland today in the quarterfinals of the world hockey championship. Jay Novacek Cowboys Jersey . You can watch the game live on TSN and TSN GO at 12:45pm et/9:45am pt. Scrivens beat out James Reimer for the No. 1 goaltender job after they split games during the preliminary round. "Tight decision, both of them played well," coach Dave Tippett said Thursday. "Just hes the guy we decided on." Scrivens won all three of his starts at his first international tournament for Canada, putting up a 1.31 goals-against average and a .954 save percentage, second only to Kevin Lalande of Belarus, an Ottawa native. Reimer lost the opener to France in a shootout, won his next three starts and had a 2.20 GAA and .911 save percentage. Tippett hinted earlier in the week at Scrivens being the likely choice after Reimer started against Norway. Canadas coach mentioned the difficult schedule of four games in six days, and Scrivens not facing Norway gave him a chance to be fresh for Finland. Scrivens is now the man, barring injury or a rough outing against Finland that doesnt end Canadas tournament. Tippett said Tuesday that his quarter-final starter would likely continue in that role as long as he won. Canadas challenge, from Scrivens on out, is a Finnish team that has only six players back from the Sochi Olympics but plays a similar style. "Theyre what youd classify as a typical Finland team where work ethic is one of their strongest points," Tippett said. "(They) play well as a team, (have) good structure, dont have a lot of NHL players on it but still players that are committed to play the way Finlands identity is. Its a structured, hard, one-on-one game." Finlands three NHL players are goaltender Pekka Rinne, captain Olli Jokinen and forward Erik Haula, who was a late addition after the Minnesota Wild were eliminated from the Stanley Cup playoffs. One player back from Sochi is Petri Kontiola, who has been Finlands leading scorer and arguably its best player. But Canadas biggest concern against Finland is Rinne, whos now healthy after being out from late October until early March with a hip infection. Nashville Predators teammate Ryan Ellis said he and his Canadian teammates are more worried about keeping the puck away from Rinne behind the net and in the corners than figuring out how to score on him. Rinnes strong play (1.65 GAA, .929 save percentage) has helped a turnover-prone Finnish defence. Still, thats something Canada might be able to exploit with an aggressive forecheck. "Your whole game has got to be built on it," Tippett said. "It doesnt matter who you play, were going to play two things that we think are the strengths of our game and certainly we think forechecking is one of the strengths of our game. "The ability to play in the offensive zone, come up with loose pucks, hold pucks and play in the offensive zone is one of the traits of good, Canadian-style hockey. Whether its Finland or whoever its against, we think thats one of the strengths of our game." Canada will have its full roster for the first time in almost a week as Alex Burrows returns from a two-game absence with a leg injury. Given Jonathan Huberdeaus success on a line with Brayden Schenn and Nathan MacKinnon, Burrows is expected to be the 13th forward. "Hes a good, veteran player," Tippett said of Burrows. "We talk about hes going to see a lot of different situations. Hes played on the penalty kill for us, hes played on the power play and hes played a regular shift, so hell jump in there, hell give us a spark." Defenceman Tyler Myers, who missed Wednesdays practice with the flu, took part in Thursdays optional skate and Tippett said hes feeling much better and will play.

The person, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the search, confirmed reports by several media outlets. The interview took place in Southern California on Monday.KAMLOOPS, B.C. - Canadas Brianne Jenner is making a habit of scoring big goals against the United States.Nine months after kickstarting her countrys memorable comeback victory in the gold-medal game at the Sochi Olympics, Jenner had the only goal of the shootout Saturday as Canada defeated the U.S. 3-2 in the final of the Four Nations Cup womens hockey tournament.After an exciting 4-on-4 overtime that included power plays and plenty of chances for both teams, Jenner roofed a backhand in the second round of the shootout before Genevieve Lacasse sealed it with saves on Brianna Decker and Hilary Knight.Its always extremely intense, said Jenner. We take every game against them really seriously. Theyre our rivals and we dont want to drop a game to them. To see it go to shootout doesnt surprise me.The game marked the first final between the two squads since Canadas dramatic 3-2 come-from-behind overtime victory at the Games in February, and came on the heels of another 3-2 win in round-robin play on Wednesday.I guess its becoming a typical Canada-U.S. game in womens hockey — just a real exciting game, said Canadian head coach Doug Derraugh. A real tough, hard-fought game. Back and forth, both teams had great chances. What more can you ask for?The players were phenomenal. It was a real energetic, passionate group.Jennifer Wakefield scored twice in regulation for Canada, while Lacasse stopped 33 shots through 80 minutes of action.Knight and Decker replied for the U.S., which got 26 saves from Molly Schaus.What a hell of a game. What an awesome thing for womens hockey, said U.S. head coach Ken Klee. It was a fantastic hockey game. Both teams played well, both teams had chances, both teams moved. It was just an awesome hockey game.Theres some disappointment. Losings no fun and were not satisfied with it but we played our hearts out. At the end if you play your hearts out you have nothing to hang your head about.Canada has now won the Four Nations Cup a total of 14 times — including last years event in Lake Placid, N.Y. — while the U.S. owns the other five titles.Im really proud of the group and what we accomplished here. This was our goal, said Canadian captain Haley Irwin. We got better each game and I think theres a lot we can take from this.Its a bounce here, a bounce there and you just have to make sure youre leaving everything out there.The two giants of the womens game brought vastly different rosters to Kamloops than the ones that took to the ice in Russia for the Olympics as both programs look to develop younger players with an eye towards the 2015 womens world hockey championship and beyond. Hayley Wickenheiser, Jayna Hefford, Caroline Ouellette and Gillian Apps were among the veterans that didnt take part in the tournament for the Canadians, while 11 Olympians stayed home for the American team.But the new faces didnt lessen the importance or intensity of the final at the sold out Interior Savings Centre.Tied 2-2 after two periods, the U.S. came close to taking the lead three minutes into the third when captain Alex Carpenter fired a shot off the post behind Lacasse that stayed out.Canada looked to have grabbbed a 3-2 edge of its own at 9:07 when Natalie Spooner buried a rebound, but the play had already been whistled dead on a delayed penalty. Robert Newhouse Womens Jersey. .Canadas Bailey Bram then had other great chance with under two minutes to go off a scramble in front as her shot from the side of the net slid through Schaus and just wide of the opposite post.The hosts then had another opportunity when Irwin was hauled down by Megan Bozek with 25 seconds left in regulation, but they were unable to capitalize in the dying seconds of regulation or early in the extra period.Down 1-0 after the first, the Americans tied the game just 50 seconds into the second when Decker moved down the right side and fired a shot that snuck inside Lacasses post for her second goal of the tournament.Every time we play the Canadians its going to be a one-goal differential, said Decker. It didnt go in our favour tonight (but) were learning from it.Coach just said theres no such thing as moral victories, but its a learning experience.Knight then gave the U.S. its first lead at 9:48 on a breakaway with her third goal at tournament after jumping on a bad turnover by Jocelyne Larocque.Canada was awarded a penalty shot with just over four minutes left in the second when Jillian Saulnier was brought down on a short-handed breakaway, but she lost control of the puck at the critical moment of her showdown with Schaus and didnt even get an effort on target.Wakefield finally got the goal Canada desperately craved when she snapped home her second of the night and third overall after taking a pass from Spooner from the corner with 2:10 left in the period to send the teams to the locker-rooms tied 2-2 after 40 minutes.Canada opened the scoring at 15:46 of a physical and fast-paced first period on the power play when Tara Watchorn blasted a high one-timer from the point that Wakefield tipped past Schaus.The U.S. players and Klee protested that the goal should have been disallowed because Wakefields stick was above the crossbar — even pointing at the big screen above the ice surface — but the call on the ice stood. There is no video review at the tournament.We build it up to be such a rivalry. Its two great teams here, said a dejected Carpenter. We look forward to getting better every day, so every time we step out there against the best in the world its amazing.In the third-place game earlier Saturday, Sweden scored with less than four minutes to go in regulation against Finland before winning 2-1 in overtime.Jenni Asserholt scored exactly nine minutes into overtime for Sweden after Emma Nordin tied the game with 3:33 left in the third period. The goals were the first two of the tournament for the Swedes, who got 27 saves from Kim Martin Hasson. Michelle Karvinen scored in the second and Eveliina Suonpaa made 14 stops for Finland, which didnt allow a shot against in the first period.Notes: Jamie Lee Rattray, who missed Canadas game against Finland on Friday, was back in the lineup against the U.S. ... The womens world hockey championship is set for March 28 to April 4 in Malmo, Sweden. ... Saturdays attendance for the gold-medal game was 5,816. ' ' '
