SOCHI – Finland will be shorthanded when it clashes with Canada on Sunday. Knicks Jerseys Outlet . Young forward Aleksander Barkov, who left a couple of shifts into the third period of his teams game on Friday, has suffered a knee injury that will force him out for the remainder of the Olympic tournament. The 18-year-old Barkov had an assist in his five-plus periods in Sochi. According to published reports in Finland, Barkov is expected to be out from four to six weeks. The Finns already were without star players Mikko Koivu and Valteri Filppula to begin the Winter Games. Koivu suffered an ankle injury in early January that he hasnt fully recovered from and Filppula was knocked out action with a broken ankle in late January. But without Koivu and Filppula, the Finns still managed to score a combined 15 goals in wins over Austria and Norway. Goaltending, however, is the strength of the Finnish team, which like Canada also took the day off to rest on Saturday. Tuukka Rask played in Finlands first win and made only 12 saves in an 8-4 decision over Austria. Kari Lehtonen was in goal for Finlands 6-1 victory over Norway. If Rask starts against Canada, will assistant coach Claude Julien share any secrets with the Canadian players? Julien, of course, coaches Rask with the Boston Bruins. “First of all, we dont know who will be their starting goalie, so I havent said a word about Tuukka yet,” Julien said. “When the time comes, and I told Tuukka before the Games that Ill say it, he doesnt really like shootouts. Hes been very public about it. Hes an excellent goalie. We havent spent too much time on goalies strengths and weaknesses. But Tuukka doesnt have many weaknesses.” Charles Oakley Jersey .

The 30-year-old Texas native was drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 20th round of the 2001 amateur draft. Duke spent six years in Pittsburgh and also had stints with Arizona, Washington and Cincinnati.BALTIMORE – Dustin McGowan will see a "W" beside his name when he checks the boxscore on Saturday morning, something he could only dream about during endless rehabilitation stints while prime years of his big league career wasted away. He scattered five hits over six and a third innings of scoreless ball in the Blue Jays 2-0 win over the Orioles and thanks to shut down relief from Brett Cecil and Sergio Santos, got his first major league win since June 22, 2008. The story has been told repeatedly about McGowans troubled injury history; the multiple shoulder surgeries, the scuttled comeback attempts until finally, last season, he returned in June and proved to be a stellar member of a great bullpen. Relief work seemed his destiny, until perseverance met opportunity and suddenly he was a part of the 2014 starting rotation. Heres some perspective on Dustin McGowans achievement: John Gibbons, his current manager, was fired from his first tenure in Toronto only two days prior to McGowans most recent win; Mark Buehrle, his teammate who never gets injured, won 77 games in between McGowans victories. Surely, this one is sweeter. "I was just thinking about it, actually," said McGowan. "It was actually against Baltimore the last time I got hurt. It brought back a couple of memories for me." Thats McGowan, typically understated. You can forgive him, too, if hes grown weary of talking about his trials over the years. The significance of the win, though, isnt lost on his manager. "Its a kind of a sentimental night, you know, one of those deals," said Gibbons. "Hes come a long way. He answered the bell. He had a rough one, his first one and he bounced back tonight against a good hitting ball cllub. Tracy McGrady Jersey. Thats very rewarding, for not only him but for everybody that knows him." It was somewhat of an atypical night for McGowan. It started out normally when he blew a fastball by Nick Markakis and then dropped a nasty slider on Delmon Young to record two early strikeouts. Strangely, those would be his only two punch outs on the evening. He two-hit the Orioles through 4 2/3 innings but hit a snag before the final out in the fifth. Markakis singled; so did Young. Then, Chris Davis, still without a home run this season but who earlier had lifted two fly balls to deep centerfield that the wind kept in the park, singled. The bases were loaded for Adam Jones. McGowan pumped a first-pitch fastball, at 95 miles per hour his hardest of the night, right down the middle for strike one. "I knew I had to get out of that jam," said McGowan. "Sometimes you have to save something in the tank for stuff like that. Tonight I just focused on pitching and reared back when I needed to." Two pitches later, Jones flew out to centerfield to end the threat. Baltimore wouldnt come close to scoring for the remainder of the night. McGowans next hurdle is to wake up Saturday morning with a shoulder that feels healthy. The hurdle after that is to repeat the same scenario on Sunday morning. Hes got another start next week, either toward the end of the Twins series or next Fridays game in Cleveland. Its been a long time since McGowan was in a routine. Hes still getting used to it. "Im still trying to find that perfect routine for me," said McGowan. "How I feel the best leading up to the days, what kind of lifting, what kind of running but it shouldnt take much longer to get it where I want it."
