Each day throughout the World Junior Championship, TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button brings important issues and topics surrounding the tournament to the forefront. Lanny McDonald Jersey . Today, Craig looks ahead at the semifinal matchups. HBI 1. Canada clear frontrunners After trailing in six of seven games in the 2014 tournament, the only question left unanswered about Team Canada 2015 is how it will respond to adversity, that is, should it come today or medal Monday. Canada has not trailed for a single second in five games and, more impressively, this team has never even been tied beyond 0-0. HBI 2. Russia up against it Russia must defy the numbers to beat Sweden today. Russia has lost five straight World Junior Championship games to Sweden - all by one goal - and nine of their last 10 meetings. Further, Swedens 16-for-16 penalty kill record and 12-for-24 power play mark are both tournament bests. HBI 3. Soderstrom vs Shestyorkin Swedens goaltending was a big question entering the tournament, but Linus Soderstrom has answered that question definitively. Though Soderstrom outdueled Ilya Sorokin in the Swedes group win over Russia, Igor Shestyorkin promises to be an even tougher challenge in the rematch of the 2014 semifinal. Nathan MacKinnon Jersey . The former central defender calmly nodded it down and quietly went about celebrating a win with his staff. For a man who has had a lot on his shoulders this season, it was an appropriate moment.

The Steelers have not announced the addition of Mitchell.DES MOINES, Iowa -- Doug Garwood sent his approach on the 18th hole into the sand and sighed. He was able to joke about it after nearly holing his bunker shot and saving par for a 7-under 65 and a one-stroke lead Saturday in the Champions Tours Principal Charity Classic. "I hit the classic fat shot that the unknown leader hits on 18," Garwood said. "And then after that it was a pretty simple sand shot and I hit it close." The 51-year-old Garwood, making his fourth start of the year and ninth in two years on the 50-and-over tour, had an 11-under 133 total at Wakonda Club. Garwood is a conditionally exempt after blowing a chance to earn a full card when he bogeyed three of his final four holes in the qualifying tournament. If he wins, hell earn full status for the next year. "Ive never been in this position before," Garwood said. "I think what I usually do is I just try to play golf. I set a score, a goal for my round, and I just try to focus on one shot at a time and achieving that. The rest of the time, I cant control what the other guys do. Im sure Ill be nervous. But thats part of the deal." Last year, he tied for second in the Nature Valley First Tee Open at Pebble Beach. His best finish this year is a tie for 25th in the Allianz Championship in February. Rob Ramage Jersey. Michael Allen, the Allianz winner, was second after a 66. Mark Calcavecchia and Tom Pernice Jr. were 9 under. Calcavecchia had a 69, and Pernice shot 67. Allen has six career Champions Tour wins, and he pushed himself into a tie for the lead with a birdie putt from the fringe on the par-3 14th hole. Allens shot delighted the fans in the grandstand because it meant that beers would be half-price for half an hour -- and Allen joined in the fun by pretending to chug one after sinking his putt. Allen made three straight birdies on the back nine -- and missed three other birdie putts that were within inches of going in. "Win, win, win," Allen said when asked about his mindset for the final round. "Ive got to keep putting well." The second round was delayed for 1 hour, 19 minutes because of lightning in the area, though the conditions remained calm throughout the stoppage in play. The delay didnt bother Chien Soon Lu, who stuck a 60-foot approach to 15 feet on No. 18 once play resumed. Lu then made a right-to-left putt to move into a temporary tie for the lead. Lu was 8 under along with Joe Durant (67), John Riegger (68) and Wes Short Jr. (70).
