MALMO, Sweden -- As the minutes ticked down on Canadas victory over the United States, the overwhelmingly Canadian crowd of 3,882 at the Isstadion chanted "Foo-KAL-eh!" That was for goaltender Zach Fucale, the key man in Tuesdays 3-2 win that gave Canada first place in its preliminary round group and a date with Switzerland in the quarter-finals of the world junior hockey championship. Jon Bostic Steelers Jersey . "It gave me a lot of energy," the 18-year-old said. "It was very special. "It just lifts you and you sort of play in the moment. It was good for me and the team." Fucale, given a second straight start after helping Canada to a 5-3 win over Slovakia on Saturday, couldnt recall ever having his name chanted quite that way. "Maybe a couple of thousand chanting against me," he offered with a laugh. "In Quebec City it happened. Maybe tonight a little louder." Connor McDavid and Curtis Lazar scored in the third period and Fucale stoned Connor Carrick on a breakaway. Stefan Matteau scored for the Americans with 2:15 left to play on a shot that eluded Fucales glove, but Canada shut the door the rest of the way to pull off a win in their toughest, most emotionally charged game of the tournament. American captain Riley Barber and Canadas Nic Petan traded goals in the second frame, after Fucale shone in a scoreless first period in which the Americans controlled the play and had a 13-6 shot advantage. Only a regulation time win would give Canada (3-0-1) first place over the U.S. (3-1-0). The Canadians will face Switzerland in the quarter-finals on Thursday at the Isstadion. As usual, coach Brent Sutter wasnt offering much insight about his teams upcoming opponent. "We now have 48 hours to prepare for our next opponent. Our focus over the next two days needs to be on this game and only on this game," was all he would say. The Swiss pulled off a 4-3 shootout win over Finland, but it didnt lift them out of fourth place in their group. What the win did, however, was give the Americans a very tough quarter-final opponent in Russia. The Canadian squad got all it needed to win -- solid goaltending, timely scoring and strong special teams play. The Americans went into the game with a whopping 58 per cent power play success rate (11-for-19), but were held scoreless during all three man advantages. Canada answered with Lazars power-play marker in five opportunities. "It was the first time weve been minus on special teams in four games and that was the difference," said American coach Don Lucia. Technically, Barbers goal at 3:29 of the second was short-handed. The teams were each down a man and Barber came around the net and caught Fucale moving the wrong way one second after Canadas Taylor Leiers slashing call expired. Some hard work by Anthony Mantha produced the tying goal at 12:49, as he used his long reach to push the puck to the left side where Petan trailed in late to beat Jon Gilles to an open side. Petan had scored the game-winner and an empty-net goal in Canadas 5-3 win over Slovakia on Monday. Mantha picked up his team-leading 10th point in four games. Canada killed a penalty to start the third and then got one just as their own power play ended 3:54 into the third when Josh Morrissey got the puck to the net and McDavid had two chances to slide it past Gilles. The 16-year-old McDavid was under pressure since his benching in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Czech Republic, and scoring a goal could go a long way to restoring confidence in the highly skilled Erie Otters forward. "Maybe a little bit," said McDavid. "As a hockey player you have to stay even keeled. Things happen in the game. The highs, the lows. You have to remain pretty confident. I think Ive done a pretty good job of that." Lazar was camped in front for the re-direct on a power play at 6:13 as the puck went from Derrick Pouliot to Jonathan Drouin to the Edmonton forward for his second goal in as many games. "Im really getting into my element," the Ottawa Senators prospect said. "Coach Sutters been moving me around. Ive played centre, right and left wing. Im still getting used to things, but it feels good to contribute." The game also saw big forward Frederik Gauthier moved from left wing to centre, where he drew praise from Sutter for winning several defensive zone faceoffs. But most of the post-game attention was on Fucale, the chatty goaltender who backstopped the Halifax Mooseheads to a Memorial Cup last spring. Fucale was dropped to backing up Jake Paterson after the first of three pre-tournament exhibition games, but it looks like hes Sutters man now. "Hes a confident young man and he stood tall," said Sutter. "We need that." Fucales teammates laugh about Fucales non-stop talking, even when hes by himself in the net during games. "I try to stay low key, but maybe I talk a lot," Fucale said. "I love Zach," said forward and fellow Montreal Canadiens prospect Charles Hudon. "I played with him peewee and bantam (in Boisbriand, Que.) and he had the same swagger. "He was always cocky. It was a good for him and I think the crowd loved it too." "It was unbelievable standing on the blue-line at the end of the game with the fans chanting Fucale," said McDavid. "I had chills and it wasnt for me, so I cant imagine how he felt. "You see a lot of goalies and theyre pretty weird. They have their routines and you cant talk to them, but hes really relaxed and honestly, he does have that swagger." Canada also got a boost with the return of big defenceman Griffin Reinhart after serving a four-game suspension for a slash at last years world juniors. Reinhart was counted on to be the leader on defence and he showed it with 20 minutes of ice time, mostly paired with Matt Dumba. He finally got to play at a world juniors with his younger brother, forward Sam Reinhart. The two were on the ice together a lot, especially while penalty killing.

Wade is posting a short film on his website next week, with a sneak preview scheduled to come out Wednesday.(SportsNetwork.com) - Winnipeg goaltender Ondrej Pavelec noted that his club lost to a good team last time out. Things dont get any easier for the Jets on Sunday afternoon as they take on the visiting St. Louis Blues. The Jets were bested 4-3 by the Detroit Red Wings on Thursday despite taking a one-goal lead into the third period. The Red Wings, though, struck twice and outshot the Jets 14-9 in the final frame. Dustin Byfuglien and Adam Lowry both snapped 14-game goal droughts in defeat, while Mathieu Perreault also scored as Winnipeg fell to 1-2-1 in its past four games. We lost against a really good team. Overall I think the game was OK. We just couldnt finish it in the third period, said Pavelec, who ended up 23 saves. Pavelec played for the first time since getting pulled after 20 minutes versus Minnesota on Nov. 16. He allowed three goals on 11 shots and has now lost three straight decisions. Pavelec is 2-3-1 lifetime versus the Blues with a 2.62 goals against average and .919 save percentage in six meetings. The Blues sit one point back of first place in the Central Division and snapped a two-gamee slide with Saturdays 3-2 win over the Ottawa Senators. Morgan Burnett Jersey. Brian Elliott made 24 saves as St. Louis allowed only five shots in the third period. Alex Steen, Max Lapierre and Vladimir Tarasenko all scored in St. Louis 11th victory in 14 games. We dont play well on a three-quarter-ice game when were defending. We dont play that well, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. Were better off playing on our toes and we were able to do that for most of the third period, which was a good feeling for all of us. St. Louis lost defenseman Jay Bouwmeester to a lower-body injury in Saturdays game and his status for this game is unknown. Backup goaltender Jake Allen, meanwhile, is likely to face the Jets for the first time in his young career tonight. He has gone 5-2-0 in seven starts for the Blues this season, posting a 2.00 GAA, .922 save percentage and two shutouts. The Blues have won four in a row versus the Jets and are 7-0-1 in the past eight meetings. They also have gone 4-0-2 in the last six encounters as the visiting team. This is the first of five meetings between the clubs this season.
