BROSSARD, Que. James Rodriguez Bayern Munich Jersey . It will be hard to overlook the head-to-head battle between the likely top two picks in the NHL draft when Canada faces the United States at the world junior championship. Debate has raged for at least two years on whether Canadas Connor McDavid or American Jack Eichel will go first at the 2015 draft in June. But before that is settled, the gifted teenagers will face each other in a showdown for first place in their preliminary round group at the Bell Centre on Wednesday afternoon. You can catch all of the action LIVE on TSN1, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN GO or listen live on the TSN Radio Network with coverage beginning at 3:30pm et/12:30pm pt. While both insist the game is about the teams and not themselves, many fans in the seats and viewers on television will be comparing the play of two of the best junior prospects to emerge in recent years. Its there a little bit, McDavid said Tuesday of the Connor versus Jack sideshow. Its been something thats been there for a long time now, but at the end of the day, its the U.S. against Canada. Its not me against anybody else. Eichel agreed. Its not all about me versus Connor, its a huge matchup for the top seed in our bracket, he said. Eichel, who turned 18 on Oct. 28, was named captain of the American squad despite his youth, while Canada made McDavid, who turns 18 on Jan. 13, an alternate to captain Curtis Lazar. It is rare for a so-called underage player at the mostly 19-year-old tournament to wear any letter at all, but these two are special talents. Both are great skaters. Both have sublime hands and playmaking ability. Both pile up points, although neither has had a breakout game at the world juniors yet. After three games each, McDavid has a goal and two assists, all collected during a 4-0 win over Germany. Eichel has a goal and a helper. In the Ontario Hockey League, the 6-foot-1, 187-pound McDavid has 16 goals and 51 points in only 18 games for the Erie Otters. Before the world juniors, he hadnt played since Nov. 11 after breaking his right hand in a fight. The 6-foot-2, 193-pound Eichel has eight goals and 27 points in 16 games for Boston University playing against slightly older competition in the NCAA. Now they are set to play against each other with a host of NHL scouts and a national TV audience watching every move. You always want to be a difference maker, whatever game it is, said the soft-spoken McDavid. Obviously its a bigger stage, but that doesnt make a difference. Both coaches, Benoit Groulx for Canada and Mark Osiecki for the U.S., praised their young phenoms for not getting too caught up in the hype about themselves and for putting their teams performance first. Although McDavid and Eichel have never really met off the ice, theyve faced each other before at under-17 and under-18 events. They also both played at last years world junior championship in Malmo, Sweden, although neither was in a leading role at that point in their development. Its exciting, but its more exciting just to be at this tournament in general, said Eichel. Its been a lot of fun so far and Im sure itll be a blast. Canada and the U.S. have built a rivalry in recent years that will add intensity to the matchup. And regardless of who wins, they could end up meeting again in the knockout stage. For us, its Canada versus the U.S., not Connor versus Eichel, said Groulx. Those are two guys among 44 players who will play against each other. I cant answer for him, but I think a lot of media have been talking about Eichel and McDavid, so I think theyre used to it. But Connor is a team player and he thinks more about us winning than him versus Eichel. Canada (3-0-0 for nine points) has outscored its opponents 16-1 so far, while the U.S. (2-0-1 for eight points) has an 11-1 edge. The Americans lost a point by going to overtime and a shootout in its tournament opening 2-1 win over Finland. Where Canada has an edge is on the power play, which has scored on five of 10 chances. The Americans have one goal in 13 opportunities. Neither team has conceded a power-play goal. Groulx made a surprise move in announcing that Eric Comrie will get the start in goal. Zach Fucale, a Montreal native, started the first and third games, allowing one goal, while Comrie had a 4-0 shutout against Germany. While the choice suggests to some a lack of faith in Fucale, Groulx said he considers them equal and said it has not yet been decided which of them is the number one goaltender. He also said that Vancouver Canucks prospect Jake Virtanen will stick with McDavids line with Curtis Lazar after playing there in the third period of a 4-1 win over Finland on Monday night. That bumps big Nick Ritchie of the Peterborough Petes to the fourth unit. Hes the same type of player as Rich, McDavid said of Virtanen. Hes a big body. He flies out there. Hes a real presence and he has a lot of skills. The game also features two more players slated as top-10 draft picks: fourth-line forward Lawson Crouse for Canada and defenceman Noah Hanifin of the U.S., who many have ranked just behind McDavid and Eichel. Custom Bayern Munich Jerseys . Thats the feeling that eight Canadian Football League teams are experiencing right now in advance of the expansion draft to stock the Ottawa Redblacks. Niklas Sule Bayern Munich Jersey . 17.A string of English Premier League teams, most in the lower end of the standings, has been linked to the 32-year-old forward but most have seemingly balked at the cost given his wages and transfer fee. http://www.soccerfcbayern.com/ . Fifth-seeded Cilic gained his fourth title in Zagreb and became the third Croat overall to win at least 10 career titles. Cilic also lifted his career record in Zagreb to 22-4, winning 20 of his last 21 matches at the event.WEST BROMWICH, England - Tottenham kept the pressure on the top four of the Premier League after a 3-0 win at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday with Harry Kane scoring two goals.The 21-year-old Kane took his seasons tally to 20 after Christian Eriksen opened the scoring at The Hawthorns.Eriksen struck after just six minutes with a trademark free kick, maintaining his fine recent form for the League Cup finalists.Kane doubled the lead in the 15th and grabbed the third from the penalty spot in the 64th, condemning Tony Pulis to his first defeat as West Brom boss.Tottenham is provisionally fifth with 40 points from 23 games.The hosts put up little resistance as Spurs carved through them at will in the early stages, getting their first chance after Mousa Dembele was brought down outside the area by Claudio Yacob.There was little doubt Eriksen would shoot but Ben Foster still seemed slow to move. It was the first goal the Baggies had conceded in three Premier League games since Pulis took charge and they were reeling from another soon after.This time Kane applied the finish after picking up a defencce-splitting pass from Dembele. David Alaba Bayern Munich Jersey. Kane turned inside Andre Wisdom and smashed the ball in before Foster had chance to react.West Brom responded positively to the double setback. Saido Berahino and Victor Anichebe combined well before Chris Brunt shot straight at Hugo Lloris from long range.That gave Lloris a first taste of the action before he was called upon to tip over a fine effort from James Morrison.Spurs goalkeeping captain, back in the side after missing their three successive cup games in the past fortnight, then did even better to deny Yacob from close range following an elaborate free-kick routine.Joleon Lescott headed over, Anichebe shot just wide and Craig Dawson went even closer, heading against the bar, as West Brom stepped up the pressure.West Brom could not carry their momentum into the second half and Spurs got the chance to increase their lead just after the hour as Lescott slid in to block a cross from Kyle Walker and the ball struck his arm.Kane was emphatic from the spot, sending Foster the wrong way with a perfect shot just inside the left post.
