Its that time of year again as Canada gets set to open the World Junior Hockey Championship against Slovakia on Boxing Day. Watch all the action live on TSN1, TSN3, TSN4, TSN5 and TSN GO at 8pm et/5pm pt with pre-game coverage beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. You can also hear the game live on the TSN Radio Networks. Canada is looking to end a five-year gold medal drought that dates back to 2010, when a loss to the United States in the final snapped a previous run of five straight titles from 2005-2009. There is unfinished business for many returning players after a fourth-place finish last year. A 2-1 loss to Russia in the bronze medal game sent Canada to its second straight tournament without a medal - only the second time in World Junior history that Canada has been held without a medal in consecutive years (1979-1981) Canada has seven returning players with forwards Curtis Lazar, Connor McDavid, Sam Reinhart, Nicolas Petan, Frederik Gauthier, defenceman Josh Morrissey and goaltender Zach Fucale. I was disappointed with how we played last year and the result we got, Lazar told the Canadian Press on Monday, reminiscing on the loss to Finland in last years semis and the defeat to Russia in the bronze-medal game. Second chances dont come around too often. Were fortunate to have this chance. Lazar, on loan from the Ottawa Senators, was named team captain on Monday with Buffalo Sabres prospect Sam Reinhart and potential No. 1 pick in the 2015 NHL draft Conner McDavid assigned as alternates. I want it to be loud. Thats the biggest thing, said Lazar. Regardless if were out there blocking a shot, hitting a guy or scoring a goal, we want our fans to support us and cheer us on. Its going to be huge, but in saying that we need to be able to manage the crowd and get them behind us right off the start. If we can get that momentum rolling through the tournament it will be really beneficial to us. World Juniors in Canada. Theyre here to support us and its up to us to put on a show. Fucale will start in net for Canada opposite Denis Godla for Slovakia. Fucale was named the starter during Thursdays practice, though head coach Benoit Grouxl would not name the starter for Canada. In Slovakia is an opponent who has captured just one medal in tournament history - a bronze in 1999. Montreal Canadiens prospect Martin Reway, Boston Bruins prospect Peter Cehlarik and Robert Lantosi are the only three returning forwards this year but a young group of talent including the likes of Matus Sokel, Patrik Koys and Dominik Briestensky give Slovakia a few legitimate offensive options. With only one defensive returnee, 17-year-old 2015 draft prospect Erik Cernak, the Slovaks will face an uphill climb against a superior Canadian attack. We want to play a fast game. Fast on the forecheck, fast with the puck, fast at getting the puck back, Groulx said on Tuesday. On Thursday, the head coach said he was ready to see his team on the ice in a meaningful game, Its time to play and well be ready. We dont want to be part of scrums after the whistle or anything like that, said Groulx. When you look at our team, we have a lot of skilled players that dont play like that (in the CHL/NHL). I dont expect discipline to be an issue.

RAPTORS STRUGGLING: The bottom line is the true test in sports isnt just how you handle failure, but how you handle success.DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- Engine troubles during the day, wrecked cars at night. Stewart-Haas Racing found all sorts of trouble at Daytona International Speedway on Saturday. Owner/driver Tony Stewart and teammate Danica Patrick got the miserable day started with blown engines in pole practice for the Daytona 500. They will have to start at the back of the field in Thursdays qualifying race and in the Feb. 23 Daytona 500. Things got worse in the Sprint Unlimited a few hours later. Stewart, Patrick, Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch were involved in a nine-car wreck in the exhibition race, knocking out three of the four SHR cars in the event that kicks off the NASCAR season. Harvick was able to return to the track but was well off the pace. "You hate to have that happen," Stewart said. "Thats just part of it. Back at Daytona." The melee started when Matt Kenseth turned in front of Joey Logano. Loganos front bumper turned Kenseths car sideways, triggering all sorts of chaos. SHR was the big loser. It looked like Patrick would wave her way through an obstacle course of wrecked cars, but she got her left-side tires on the infield grass, which got her turning sideways. And as she tried to straighten out her No. 10 Chevrolet, boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. plowed into her. "I got hit by my boyfriend. What a bummer," Patrick said. "I was sitting there and pretty much just about stopped and then I got hit. That was it. It was a real bummer. I was having fun and I felt like I was learning a lot. It was good to run with those guys. It would have been nice to get it to the end for the experience." Jeff Gordon, Brad Keselowski and Carl Edwards also were involved in the crash on the front-stretch. "Really unfortunate that so many cars are torn up, especially when it appears that I probably triggered it," Kenseth said. "I feel bad about that and feel bad that all this stuff is all torn up." SHR has to figure Speedweeks will improve from here. Stewwart, Patrick and HScott Motorsports driver Bobby Labonte had engine failures in practice, creating concern that Hendrick Motorsports might have issues.dddddddddddd Stewart, Patrick and Labonte all lease engines from Hendrick, which also fields cars for Gordon, Jimmie Johnson, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne. "Not really concerned about it," Stewart said. "Pretty confident itll be fine." Labontes engine went first. Stewarts started smoking a bit later, followed about 10 minutes later by Patricks. "I was like, Man, are we doing something?" Patrick said. "Its something that we are doing in our family here and we need to figure it out. I was saying I bet other Hendrick cars are thinking, Whats going on? So we have got time to hopefully figure it out. Definitely figure it out before the race." Though Hendrick drivers had no engine problems, Johnson, Gordon, Earnhardt and Kahne seemed to be down on horsepower. The fastest Hendrick driver during the first practice was Gordon, who was 21st on the speed chart. "We feel like we understand what is happening," Hendrick general manager Doug Duchardt said. "We will get the engines back over and tear them down from NASCAR. I think we will be able to confirm everything that is happening. ... We think we understand what is happening there and we will take a look at that." Duchardt and Scott Maxim, Hendricks director of engine track support, said they are confident the engines wont be an issue in Saturday nights Sprint Unlimited exhibition race, in qualifying Sunday, in the dual qualifying races next Thursday or in the Daytona 500. "Moving forward, we will be all right," Maxim said. "We will identify what weve got and we will make changes needed, and I think that we will be able to make corrective action. We will be able to look the engines over closely and make sure that we are not going into (Sunday) with an issue. Then after that, we will be all good."
