Thankfully we did that.Canadian netminder Corbin Watson only had to make 10 saves to earn the shutout.Tyler McGregor also had a pair of goals for Canada (1-0-0), while Adam Dixon scored once and assisted on two others. Marc Dorion and Ben Delaney rounded out Canadas offence.Man-Gyun Yu turned away 14-of-22 shots for South Korea (0-1-0).Bowden opened the scoring at 7:13 of the first period and Dixon made it 2-0 for Canada 28 seconds later.Dorion put the Canadians up three goals before the first intermission.Delaney struck 2:02 into the second period and then Canada blew the game open with three goals in a span of 2:42 to make it 7-0 after 40 minutes.McGregor scored his first of the game at 10:10 while on the power play and Rempel followed at 12:32. McGregor then added his second of the period just 19 seconds after.Bowden rounded out the scoring at 9:08 of the third period with another power-play goal.The Canadians went 2 for 3 on the power play and kept out of the penalty box for the entire contest.Canada recently hosted its team selection camp, replacing some veterans with new faces. A victory over South Korea alleviated some of the nerves for those lacking international experience, according to Bowden — an alternate captain.For some of the new guys I think (winning) helps them relax a bit, said Bowden. I know some of them had some nerves at the start but they loosened up against Korea.Earlier — in a rematch of the gold-medal game from the 2014 Sochi Paralympics — Declan Farmer scored with 1:45 left in the third to lift the U.S. over Russia 3-2.Brody Roybal and Kevin McKee also scored for the Americans (1-0-0), who got an 18-save outing from goaltender Steve Cash.It was an exciting first game, not just for the tournament, but for our season in general, said U.S. coach Jeff Sauer. Our newcomers learned a lot today against a strong Russian team. Were glad to get the win and ready to improve next game.Evgeny Petrov and Vasily Varlakov supplied the offence for Russia (0-1-1) while Vladimir Kamanstev stopped 17 shots in the loss. Canada will face Russia on Monday in preliminary-round action while the U.S. plays South Korea.I can feel this fire in the change room, guys are hungry now and got a taste of our first win, said Bowden. Now were going to be able to take the next step forward and play an even better team with that same energy. Its a very cool feeling right now.

He just doesnt want the Thunder to make a habit of it. "Were very prideful. Were going to keep fighting to the last possession," Brooks said after watching his team pull out a come-from-behind 115-113 win at home against Denver. "Thats always been a trademark but we cant just turn it on the second half. We have to correct that. Its my job to find combinations where guys are going to play with more defensive force." Kevin Durant scored 38 points, Russell Westbrook had 30 points and 12 rebounds and the Thunder were forced to rally late to win their second straight game. "Its tough. We cant continue to do that and put pressure on ourselves. Weve got to start the game better. Most of that is my fault," Westbrook said. Oklahoma Citys All-Star point guard struggled early hitting just one of his first seven shots and just four of 12 in the first half. But Westbrook also had seven assists and 11 fourth-quarter points to help Oklahoma City erase a 14-point deficit in the second half. Reggie Jackson added 14 points. With the score tied at 105, Serge Ibaka pulled down an offensive rebound and found Durant for a 3-pointer that put Oklahoma City (7-3) ahead to stay. Jeremy Lamb and Derek Fisher each hit a pair of free throws in the final 14 seconds to help the Thunder hold on. "I think Fish was a huge part of that," Brooks said. "Youve got to love guys that play with everything they have. I cant say enough about his effort. His effort turned that game around." Ty Lawson led Denver (4-6) with 29 points and eight assists. J.J. Hickson had 18 points and 19 rebounds. The Nuggets led the entire game except for the first 18 seconds of the first quarter and the final 1:26 of the fourth.

Denver shot 59 per cent from the field while grabbing a 39-28 lead after the first quarter. Oklahoma City then began the seccond quarter with a 10-2 run, but reserve Nate Robinson gave the Nuggets a lift with eight points that helped them to a 13-point lead.dddddddddddd After hitting just one shot in the first quarter, Westbrook scored eight points in the second. Westbrooks 25-footer with a second remaining in the half cut Denvers lead to three. Denver increased its lead to 14 in the third quarter but watched it evaporate as Oklahoma City rallied for its second straight win. "Bottom line, you play a team of this calibre on their home court and you pretty much control the entire game it comes down to small details and we didnt do well enough in those areas," Shaw said. "Thats the part thats the shame." Denver missed 18 free throws and gave up 19 offensive rebounds to the Thunder. Oklahoma City has traditionally struggled with the Nuggets, winning one of four meetings last season and 7 of 12 overall in the young series. The Nuggets had five players score in double figures, but went 25 for 43 from the free-throw line. Evan Fournier had 12 points, Randy Foye scored 11 and Robinson finished with 10. The Thunder were 26 for 32 from the line and outrebounded Denver 53-45. "The comforting thing is we have guys that can come off the bench and play good minutes and have a good role for us," Brooks said. "Thats my job to figure out our best lineups at the end of the game and we found the defensive team that was willing to compete every possession." NOTES: Oklahoma City was 13 for 27 from 3-point range. Westbrook and Durant each made three 3s. ... The Thunder outscored the Nuggets 32-21 in the fourth.
