Each day throughout the World Junior Championship, TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button brings important issues and topics surrounding the tournament to the forefront. Orlando Pace Jersey . Today, Craig looks at some trends that emerged from the quarterfinals. HBI 1. What went wrong for USA? In the wake of another failure to reach the semifinals - the fourth time in seven years for the U.S. - team officials are left to ponder if they picked the correct players. Two notable omissions with elite skill: Londons Christian Dvorak (69 points in 35 games) and Youngstowns Kyle Connor (More than a point per game in USHL). HBI 2. Canadas Dept. of Defence The real heroes of defence are the soldiers recognized during World Junior games, but Canadas defencemen have been sensational. They are not sexy, just incredibly effective. Five 2013 World U18 gold medallists - Morrissey, Morin, Bowey, Heatherington and Theodore - are seeking to win another as U20 champs. HBI 3. These are not same Slovaks The Slovakian team that Canada routed on Boxing Day is not the same team it will confront Sunday. Denis Godla has given the Slovaks superlative goaltending and Canada coach Benoit Groulx knows all too well of Martin Reways explosiveness; Reway played for Groulx with the Gatineau Olympiques. Zach Laskey Jersey . - A retired Indiana school principal who was NASCAR star Jeff Gordons drivers education teacher was killed with his wife in a Tennessee crash while returning from watching Gordon race. Samson Ebukam Jersey . Locke overcame a shaky start to pitch seven innings and Josh Harrison had three hits to extend his hot streak as the Pirates beat the Miami Marlins 7-3 on Wednesday night. http://www.laramsfansshop.com/c-8-rams-jack-youngblood-jersey.aspx . -- Arizona pitcher Bronson Arroyo is expected to miss a week to 10 days because of a back injury. MONTREAL -- Montreal Canadiens special teams finally came through. The Canadiens scored twice on the power play and fended off four minor penalties in their 3-1 come-from-behind victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Tuesday night. "Special teams are huge every game," said Andrei Markov, who tied the game 1-1 with the man advantage early in the third period. It was the first of three goals for the Canadiens in the final frame. "If you kill a penalty, score a couple of goals, you have a chance to win the game." Montreals power play is by no means modest. The team entered the game sitting sixth in the league with a success rate of 21.5 per cent. But the Canadiens special teams were slumping. They had only scored one power-play goal in their previous 21 opportunities. On Tuesday, Montreal (21-12-3) converted two-of-four chances with the man advantage. Markov scored the first after the Coyotes David Moss took a holding penalty at 2:01 of the third, and Max Pacioretty got the second with Oliver Ekman-Larsson penalized for delaying the game after batting the puck into the netting. Paciorettys 13th of the season was the winner, scored by shooting the puck into traffic in front of Mike Smiths goal. The puck ricocheted off defenceman Michael Stones skate and into the net at 13:18. Coach Michel Therrien put Paciorettys line on the ice for every Canadiens power play. Montreals power forward finished the game with 4:03 of ice time with the man advantage. "When coach gives you that type of opportunity, you want to deliver," said Pacioretty, who also assisted on Markovs goal. "Especially when things arent going how you want them to go, when he gives you an opportunity like that you want to prove that hes making the right decision. "I think that was our motivation as a line to step up." Former Canadien Mike Ribeiro also looked to special teams as his teams downfall. The Coyotes (18-10-5) were leading 1-0 before Moss headed to the penalty box. "We made mistakes, took some bad penalties," said Ribeiro. "Special units are part of the game, and if you cant get them to click, oftentimes youll lose the game." Ribeiro pointed to a second-period poweer play as the difference in the game. John Johnson Jersey. With Phoenix still in the lead, Brandon Prust was called for roughing at 6:51 of the second. Prust turned the penalty into a four-minute double minor by mouthing something to the referee, and was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct. But the Coyotes couldnt muster much offence with the extra skater. "After that power play in which we didnt create anything, they gained momentum," said Ribeiro, who made his eighth career appearance versus Montreal since being traded in 2006. "Our special teams didnt create momentum, didnt create much. They came back and scored." "Its disappointing. Its part of the game, but you cant take that and be happy about it. You need to grind it out and be stronger." Mikkel Boedker got the Coyotes on the board at 6:14 of the first period, banking his own rebound off his skate and into the net for his tenth goal of the year. The Coyotes outshot the Canadiens 15-3 in the first and had another 12 attempts blocked by Montreal players. The Canadiens threatened the Phoenix net with more gusto in the second, but still couldnt put one past Smith. The home team came close to tying the game when Pacioretty fired a one-time shot off the crossbar late in the period. Montreal finally found its equalizer to start the third when Markov beat Smith between the legs with a slapshot from the point. "As soon as Markov fired that one in, he didnt show too much emotion," said Pacioretty of the game-tying goal. "But you know hes fired up when he leans into a slapshot like that. It got the guys going a bit." After Pacioretty made it 2-1, he added an empty-netter to seal the victory. Carey Price stopped 26 of 27 shots for Montreal, while Smith made 26 saves for the Coyotes. Notes: Phoenix hasnt won in Montreal since 1996. a The win was Montreals first when trailing after two periods (1-10-1). a Rene Bourque was in the lineup after missing the last seven games with a lower body injury. a Phoenix captain Shane Doan was absent (illness). a The Coyotes current road trip takes them to Toronto next. a The Canadiens and Coyotes meet once more this season on March 6, 2014, in Glendale, Arizona.
