Hockey: Canada holds off U.S. at worlds

By The Associated Press

INNSBRUCK, Austria Rick Nash had two goals and an assist to lift Canada to a 3-1 victory over the United States yesterday at the world hockey championships.

The 20-year-old star of the Columbus Blue Jackets snapped two ties with his goals and led Canada to its third straight win in the opening round. Joe Thornton had Canada's other goal, and Boston Bruins teammate Mike Knuble scored for the United States (2-1).

Nash has six goals in the tournament, playing on a line with Thornton and Simon Gagne.

"It feels good beating the U.S. and getting two points," Nash said. "For our line to get all three goals is obviously good."

Canada, the defending world champion, will play Sweden the runner-up the past two years in the qualification round tomorrow. The Americans play Finland today.

Latvia clinched a spot in the second round with a 3-1 victory over Slovenia.

The Czech Republic locked up first place in Group D by beating Kazakhstan 1-0 in Vienna on a second-period goal by Edmonton Oilers forward Ales Hemsky. The Czechs won their third straight but struggled offensively without injured forward Jaromir Jagr.

Jagr, a five-time NHL scoring champion, broke the little finger on his left hand Tuesday when he was slashed by German defenseman Stefan Schauer. Jagr was fitted with a splint and rejoined the team Wednesday.

Switzerland beat Germany 5-1 in the second game at Vienna yesterday. Switzerland (2-1) finished second in Group D, while Germany (0-3) was last.

Needing only a tie to win Group B based on goal differential, Canada took a 1-0 lead just 51 seconds into the second period on a great effort by Nash.

Nash tried a wraparound and the puck bounced high. He knocked it down with his left glove, skated backward away from the net and let go a low shot that got past goalie Rick DiPietro.

The United States tied it 1-1 at 5:16 of the second when Knuble stole the puck from defenseman Ed Jovanovski and whipped a shot between Martin Brodeur's pads during a power play.

It was the third goal of the tournament for Knuble, who played in Sweden during this season's NHL lockout.

Nash made it 2-1 while the teams were playing 4-on-4. He put in a shot off the crossbar at 11:29.

Thornton gave Canada a two-goal lead with a power-play goal at 12:42 of the third.

Canada improved to 43-4-2 against the United States in the worlds since 1920.

"There's still a lot of hockey to be played, and if we want to grab a medal out of this we have to play Canada again probably at some point," Knuble said.

NHL talks resume
The NHL and the players union met for just three hours yesterday in the first round of labor negotiations in two weeks.

The sides will get together again today in Toronto, as previously planned, and have two bargaining sessions scheduled for each of the next two weeks.

There were no details released about the talks the sixth bargaining session since NHL commissioner Gary Bettman canceled the 2004-05 season Feb. 16.

Rick Nash is gonna blow up big time once the NHL resumes.

Even with the crappy team Canada put together the US still can't beat them.
