MONTREAL - A fine chemistry may be brewing between centre Nic Petan and winger Robby Fabbri at the world junior championship.The so-called third liners, playing mainly with Nick Paul on the other wing, piled on the goals as Canada defeated over-matched Slovakia 8-0 to open the tournament on Friday night.Fabbri had two goals and an assist, while Petan had a goal and two helpers to lead the onslaught.Points are one thing, but the way the team played the whole game, staying level headed, sticking to our game, it was good to see and good to win the game, said Fabbri, a St. Louis Blues prospect.I get switched around once in a while, but to play with Nic Petan, hes such a special player. So skilled and he works really hard. Its easy just to feed off him.A disappointing crowd of only 14,142 turned out to the Bell Centre, but those who stayed away missed a dominant performance from a Canadian side that looks strong and deep on attack.Fabbri scored twice and Anthony Duclair had the other as Canada got three goals in a 4:17 span of the first period, then added four more in the second and another in the third while owning the puck and out-shooting Slovakia 34-12.The Canadians will try to keep it going against Germany on Saturday.It helps with confidence and stuff like that, but the way were thinking is that this games over and done, said Petan. A game like that, you think its easy, but youre still working as hard as you can. It isnt like youre taking a step off the gas pedal. Youre playing the right way.Duclair, Max Domi, Jake Virtanen and Brayden Point each had a goal and an assist. Paul also scored, while Sam Reinhart and Madison Bowey had two assists each.Zach Fucale, who was barely tested, got the shutout. Eric Comrie gets the start against Germany.Coach Benoit Groulx was delighted to see goals from many sources, even if his top line of Connor McDavid, Curtis Lazar and Nick Ritchie was held off the scoresheet.It was nice to see the offence come from our third and fourth lines, said Groulx. I really feel that with our speed up front, we were able to put them on their heels.Connor, Duclair, Reinhart, they have tremendous speed and its tough to defend. And its tough when you have Brayden Point who you can put on any line and he adjusts. We have offence on every line and its up to us to find a way to bring it out, day in and day out.The Germans will no doubt play a tighter checking game in the neutral zone.Groulx said he doesnt fear complacency from his side, which is motivated by playing at home even if the rink wasnt filled to its 21,000-plus capacity.Canada didnt know what to expect from Slovakia. At last years tournament in Malmo, Sweden, they trailed the Slovaks 3-2 after two periods before storming back for a 5-3 win on two goals by Petan, one of seven players back this year.Slovakia captain Martin Reway looked shell-shocked after the defeat.Its my third year here and we always played tight games with them, said Reway, a former Gatineau Olympique now playing in the Czech Republic. We know theyre good, but I told the guys we can play with them. But we didnt play well in the first two periods.Slovakia faces Finland on Saturday.To get it started, Fabbri finished a tic-tac-toe play with Reinhart and Duclair at 4:52, Duclair took a feed from Domi alone in front and put a slick move on Denis Godla at 8:12 and Fabbri got behind the defence to take Petans pass and lift it over the Slovak goalie at 9:09.Slovakia coach Ernest Bokros called a timeout and his team played managed to hold Canada off the rest of the period.But Paul fought off a check to lift one in 6:54 into the second frame while Point one-timed Petans pass in at 11:38. That prompted a goaltending change as Godla, who stopped 18 of 23 shots, was replaced by David Okolicany.Domi beat him cleanly with a long wrist shot to the top corner on a solo rush at 16:14 and Petan walked out of the a corner with the teams each short a man and zipped one under the crossbar at 17:21.The Slovaks had one dangerous flurry early in the first period that was held off by Fucale, who wasnt threatened again until he made a big stop on Peter Cehlarik five minutes into the third.I need to stay focused no matter how many shots I get, whether I get two or 50, said Fucale. Notes — It was expected that Dillon Heatherington would be Canadas seventh defenceman, but it ended up with Samuel Morin skating sporadic shifts. . . The Slovaks got their third shot at 6:45 of the first frame and their fourth at 7:29 of the second. . . Canada opened last years tournament with a 7-2 win over Germany. Willie Cauley-Stein Jersey . Pominville scored in all three of Minnesotas games last week to help the Wild (8-4-3, 19 points) earn four out of a possible six points. His best performance was in a 4-3 win over Montreal on Friday, where he posted a season-high three points (two goals, one assist), including the game-winning goal. David West Jersey .

Roush confirmed the decision Sunday, a move that had been long expected but could not be substantiated because Edwards refuses to publicly discuss contract negotiations. Hes believed to be headed to Joe Gibbs Racing in a new fourth car, but his contract with Roush does not permit him to announce his plans until September. Matt Kenseth was bound by the same clause when he left Roush at the end of 2012 and had to wait months to announce he was moving to Gibbs. Edwards, speaking two hours before the start of the Brickyard 400, said he has a completed deal with another team but is not ready to talk about it. He also tried to limit his time discussing his departure from Roush because the start of Sundays race was approaching. "Right now, the mission is to win this championship, this race," Edwards said. "This is my decision, its a decision I made and I didnt take it lightly. Sometimes you just want to make a change, and opportunities present themselves and you say, Hey, what was that like to not take that opportunity? " With a move to Gibbs, Edwards will be reunited at a Toyota team with Kenseth, whom he didnt always get along with when they were Roush teammates. Minutes before the race, team owner Joe Gibbs declined to discuss Edwards but said a fourth car at the organization is possible. Leaving Roush ends Edwards long association with Ford. The manufacturer stepped up heavily in contract negotiations four years ago to offer incentives to keep Edwards from leaving Roush for Gibbs. "Carl Edwards has been a part of the Ford family for a decade, and it will certainly be tough to see him leave Ford and Roush Fenway Racing," said Jamie Allison, director of Ford Racing. "While we are disappointed in his decision to leave Roush Fenway Racing, we certainly want to extend our appreciation for Carls contributions." Edwards has been with Roush since 2003 and in the No. 99 Ford in the Cup Series since 2004. He has 67 career victories in NASCARs three national series. Edwards results have not been anywhere close to what he had hoped after losing the 2011 championship on a tiebreaker to Tony Stewart. Edwards went winless in 22012, his first year of a new three-year contract extension with Roush, and missed the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship.dddddddddddd Although he won two races last season, he finished last in the 13-driver Chase field. His performance is much better this year and Edwards goes into Sundays race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway ranked sixth in the standings with two victories. He said he does not want his departure to interfere with winning the Chase. "If you look around, not in the NASCAR world, but all of sports, change sometimes is a good thing from a performance standpoint," Edwards said. "You guys know what Ive been through from a competitive standpoint. Ive been really close as a driver to some championships, and I know what one point, one race can do. So the last thing Im going to do, or (the team) is going to do is let next year and beyond affect the championship." Roush disclosed its three-driver 2015 lineup: Greg Biffle and Ricky Stenhouse Jr. will both return, and Trevor Bayne will move up from the Nationwide Series to a full-time Sprint Cup Series ride. "We have always prided ourselves in developing talent at Roush Fenway, and our 2015 lineup is a testament to the success of our organization in that respect," Jack Roush said. Biffle has been with Roush since 1998 and earned the organization its first NASCAR championship with the 2000 Truck Series crown. He added a Nationwide Series title in 2002. He has qualified for the Chase in five of the last six seasons and was a career-best second in 2005. "I dont have the words for what Jack Roush has meant to my career," Biffle said. "Our goal remains to run up front, win races and become the sports first triple crown winner by having a championship in all three series." Stenhouse, a two-time Nationwide Series champion, joined Roush Fenway in 2008. He replaced Kenseth in the No. 17 Ford when Kenseth left for Gibbs. Fastenal, one of the primary sponsors on Edwards car, will move its funding to Stenhouse next season to remain in the organization. Roush officials had previously announced that Bayne will be promoted from the Nationwide Series to a full-time Cup ride next year, with AdvoCare as his primary sponsor of the No. 6 Ford. ' ' '
