GLASGOW -- Canadas rugby sevens team split its opening matches of the Commonwealth Games on Saturday to set up a must-win battle Antworten

GLASGOW -- Canadas rugby sevens team split its opening matches of the Commonwealth Games on Saturday to set up a must-win battle against host Scotland. Travis Swanson Jets Jersey . Canada ran roughshod over Barbados in a 68-5 victory to bounce back from a 39-0 loss to defending champion earlier in the day. "We let ourselves down big time in that first game and it was a chance for them to redeem themselves," said coach Kieran Crowley. John Moonlight, Mike Scholtz and Ciaran Hearn scored two tries apiece as Canada bounced back from a 39-0 loss to defending champion New Zealand earlier in the day. Nathan Hirayama, Harry Jones, Connor Braid and Justin Douglas had one try apiece, while Hirayama was good on all six conversions and Braid booted three. The Canadians face Scotland in their final game of the day, needing a victory in front of whats sure to be a jam-packed Ibrox Stadium -- normally home to Rangers F.C. -- to be in the medal mix on Sunday. "Home ground, 50-odd thousand people here roaring for them, so it will be massive," Crowley said. New Zealand eged Scotland 17-14 to clinch Pool A. The Canadians faced an eight-hour break between games before taking the pitch against Scotland, and werent pleased about it. "We went through the channels to put complaints in about it," Crowley said. "And in the end it came down to TV scheduling and things like that which is not the ideal thing as far as were concerned. "A couple of other teams are in the same boat as us. Theyre not going to change it, it is what it is, weve got to deal with it." The Canadians, who had been at the storied stadium since shortly after 7 a.m. to begin warmup, planned to remain there all day rather than return to the athletes village. Large tents with mattresses had been assembled behind the stadium. "We talked about it before coming to the tournament, how were going to rest and recover," Jones said. "Brought some board games, might have a quick nap just to kill the time. "The biggest thing is not to turn off too much, obviously we didnt show up in that first game, and that was a bit wakeup call and we cant do that again." Board game of choice: Settlers of Catan. The Canadians were drawn into arguably the tournaments toughest group with three of the worlds core teams -- New Zealand, Scotland and themselves. They were no match for the mighty New Zealand All-Blacks earlier in the day. The bigger and faster All-Blacks thoroughly dominated the Canadians, swatting away their tackle attempts like they were brushing away pesky flies. "Our own defence and penalties let us down," Braid said. "We had systems in place but we fell apart when it came time. Whether it was jitters or not, we have to make sure that stuffs gone. . ." DJ Forbes and Ben Lam scored two tries apiece, and Bryce Heem, Tim Mikkelson and Akira Ioane had one each. New Zealand is gunning for its fifth gold medal in rugby sevens, having won the title all four times the sport has been in the Games. Rugby sevens, which will make its Olympic debut in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, was touted as a sure highlight of the Commonwealth Games, played before capacity crowds in the 51,000-seat storied Ibrox Stadium. The arena was packed from the opening game -- Canada vs. New Zealand -- and during Canadas second game, the noisy crowd roared when Sean Ward scored the lone try for fledgling Barbados. The Canadians say theyre prepared for a stiff test against the Scots on Saturday night. "We had a bit of a taste a couple of months ago, but obviously this is a little bit different, packed house here, but weve played in big stadiums against big teams before," Jones said. "Its nothing new to the guys, obviously the Scottish fans are going to be on their home side the whole time but well just have to deal with that when it comes." Canada edged Scotland earlier this season in the semifinals of the Glasgow IRB Sevens World Series stop. The Canadians made history by reaching the final for the first time, only to be trounced 54-7 by New Zealand in the final. Cairo Santos Jersey . But qualifying for her first Scotties Tournament of Hearts after years of falling short in tough Manitoba provincial championships is as good as consolation prizes get for the 29-year-old from Winnipegs Fort Rouge Curling Club. Trumaine Johnson Jersey .A. remained bitter for Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers on the long flight back home to New York. http://www.thejetsjerseysshoponline.com/Youth-Joe-Namath-Jets-Jersey/ . Notes on P.K. Subban, Dale Weise, Erik Haula, Mikael Granlund, Ilya Bryzgalov and more.The St. Louis Blues remain at the top spot of the TSN.ca NHL Power Rankings, holding off the Chicago Blackhawks in both the rankings and the Central Division standings. The Minnesota Wild have continued their rise in the rankings, both by getting healthier and adding left winger Matt Moulson at the trade deadline. The Wild are up to 11, when they were ranked 20th prior to the Olympics. Even with an injury to starting goaltender Kari Lehtonen, the Dallas Stars have moved from 16 to 13, following the lead of centre Tyler Seguin, who is up to fifth in the NHL scoring race. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Washington Capitals each climbed three spots, to 17 and 18, respectively; the Leafs with one regulation loss in the past seven and the Capitals with some decent additions to the lineup, with goaltender Jaroslav Halak and left winger Dustin Penner added at the trade deadline as well as top prospect Evgeny Kuznetsov arriving from the KHL. It comes as no shock that the Montreal Canadiens miss injured goaltender Carey Price, but they havent recorded a regulation win ssince Price last started, a span of seven games. Isaiah Crowell Jersey. So, even with the addition of Thomas Vanek, the Habs fall from nine to 14. Four wins in five games would normally be just fine for the Columbus Blue Jackets, but they are missing half of their defence corps due to injuries at the moment, which results in a fall from 11 to 16. The Winnipeg Jets have one regulation win in the past seven games and lost rookie centre Mark Scheifele to a knee injury, which knocks the Jets from 14 to 19. Among the rest of the Canadian teams, The Vancouver Canucks are down from 22 to 23 after dealing Roberto Luongo to Florida, the Ottawa Senators are also down a spot with left winger Clarke MacArthur sidelined. The Edmonton Oilers continue at 26, one spot ahead of the Calgary Flames. Both teams have respectable recent records, but they have created some big holes and moved out some productive players.
