PARIS -- Patrick Chan knows the pressure on him will be intense at the Sochi Olympics after breaking three of his own world records on the way to his fourth victory at the Trophee Bompard. Scott Schebler Jersey . The three-time world champion crushed the competition to win the event by more than 30 points on Saturday -- eclipsing his own best scores in the short program and free skate and beating his best combined mark. The 22-year-old from Toronto knows his composure will be tested much more at the Winter Games. "A score like that -- if I put that up at the Olympics I think it will be very, very hard to beat," he said. "This is a grand prix event Ive been to many times. The Olympics is only the second time (for me) and Im competing against the best skaters in the world so its a very different circumstance, a very different atmosphere." Meanwhile, American skater Ashley Wagner successfully defended her title despite finishing second in the free skate. "Tonight was a pretty decent night for me," Wagner said. "I think theres still room for improvement." Chan scored 196.75 in the free for an overall mark of 295.27 -- smashing his previous best combined score (280.98) and his free record (187.96) from the 2011 worlds. Japans Yuzuru Hanyu tallied 263.59 overall to finish second, and American Jason Brown scored 243.09 for his first senior medal. Both are 18. Chan expects a much fiercer challenge in Sochi, where he will need all of his mental strength. "Its going to be a goal of mine to be able to click and think about moments like today and yesterday to do the exact same thing at the Olympics," he said. Chan chose his favourite piece of music to skate to -- Concerto Grossos "Four Seasons" -- and performed with such grace and precision that the Paris crowd rose as one to give him a deafening ovation as he blew kisses back to them. "Its a piece of music that really meshed well with me," he said. "I could time my knee bends, my breathing to the music." Chan will be hard to stop at the Dec. 5-8 Grand Prix Final in Fukuoka, Japan. He nailed his opening quad toeloop-triple toeloop, his quad toeloop and his triple axel jumps with remarkable ease. "I felt truly free and I was really able to have ownership of every moment I could skate," Chan said. "Thats why we compete. Not for the medals or the money. You kind of feel unbeatable and indestructible. I was happy, free and light." Chan usually scores so highly in the short that he has room for error in the long. "Today was a challenge because Ive done very well in the short program in the past and havent had a good track record with the long," he said. Hanyu recovered brilliantly after a nervous start where he stumbled on his opening jump -- a quad salchow -- and then fell attempting a quad toeloop. He shook his head as he left the ice as the crowd warmly cheered him. Wagner, who was second at Skate America behind Japans Mao Asada last month, scored 194.37 and beat Adelina Sotnikova -- who had the best score in the long -- by five points. The 15-year-old Anna Pogorilaya was 10 points back in third spot. Both Russians and Wagner are qualified for the GP Final. Earlier, Olympic runners-up Pang Qing and Tong Jian won the Trophee Bompard pairs for the first time in their final season. World bronze medallists Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ont., and Eric Radford of Balmerton, Ont., finished second, securing their place for the Fukuoka event, which will feature the top six skaters in each category. "Were incredibly proud of ourselves to make the final with the pressure we put on ourselves," Radford said. Americans Caydee Denney and John Coughlin took the bronze medal. Also, Olympic champions Tessa Virtue of London, Ont., and Scott Moir of Ilderton, Ont., followed up their success at Skate Canada by winning the ice dance. The Canadians were nine points better than European runners-up Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov of Russia, who beat Cup of China winners Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat of France by less than a point. "We felt like it was a strong skate," said Moir. "There were some great moments and it was a better skate than at Skate Canada especially the ending. Still we left some points out there. Technically we cant afford to do those little mistakes." Nicole Orford of Burnaby, B.C., and Thomas Williams of Okotoks, Alta., were eighth.

Both of Padakins goals came in the second period while Zane Jones added a single in the first period for Calgary (13-6-4). Hitmen goaltender Chris Driedger finished with 30 saves for the shutout.Tonight at 7:05pm et a referee will drop the puck to kick off the 2013-14 Stanley Cup Playoffs. The first round is always the toughest brand of hockey and the most difficult for the Officials to work effectively. Finishing on top of a division does not always guarantee advancement beyond the first playoff round as we have seen through several upsets in recent years. This years matchups will guarantee that some legitimate Cup contenders will be eliminated with a one and done series appearance. The margin for victory between all the teams is very slim and mistakes made by players and officials are magnified at this time of year. Simply put, mistakes can be the difference between a team and an official from going on in the playoffs or going home! Last night I joined James Duthie for a brief segment in the playoff preview show shot in Studio 9 at TSN where I will be monitoring games and officials calls on a nightly basis throughout the first round. James asked me what I will be looking for from the Officials the moment the playoffs begin. My response was for strict adherence to the letter of the law. The rules do not change during the playoffs and neither should the expected standard of enforcement! The referees have often been accused of putting their whistles away during the playoffs. Far too many times we have seen the score and time of a game factored into the refs judgment as to what constitutes an obvious penalty. I cited a game between the NY Rangers and the Montreal Canadiens from the final weekend of the regular season as an example of what we should hope from the referees throughout this postseason. In that game, referee Gord Dwyer awarded a penalty shot to Brian Gionta in overtime when the Habs captain was tripped from behind at the Rangers blue line by Raphael Diaz. Gionta was chasing a loose puck at the time he was fouled and therefore did not have possession and control of the puck. This aspect of the play could have offered the referee an out to take an easier path and simply assess a minor penalty for tripping. Instead, referee Dwyer made the correct judgment as stipulated in rule 24.8 (iii) that Brian Gionta would have obtained possession and control of the puck and was denied a reasonable chance to score. The game ended when Brian Gionta scored on the ensuing penalty shot awarded by the referee. Kudos to referee Dwyer for making this perceived ttough call (video link). Custom Cincinnati Reds Jerseys. In reality the more difficult position a referee will place himself in is if he attempts to manage the game by letting an obvious infraction go uncalled. This often sets a chain of events in motion that is difficult for the ref to recover from. The subsequent infraction committed by the other team is usually worse than the previous one he let go. By applying a sense of fairness, the official feels helpless to call that next penalty and the standard becomes lost. The best deterrent for a player to avoid committing an infraction is the fear that he will be placing his team at a disadvantage by incurring a penalty. When that fear factor no longer exists as a result of the refs whistle being put away the game can deteriorate and the integrity of the outcome placed in jeopardy. Anarchy can result until an automatic penalty is called such as puck over the glass or too many men on the ice and a semblance of order is restored! This negative influence on a game can be avoided it the referees call the obvious infractions that are committed regardless of the score or time in a game. Whenever the officials make the tough but correct call they must receive the support of the Officiating Department heads. Management needs to demonstrate their courage by publicly backing the officials when they make the right call at a crucial time in the game. A season long subjective performance evaluation has been tabulated by the Officiating and Hockey Operations Department on each referee and linesman to determine selection to the playoffs. Congratulations and best of luck to the following officials that have been selected to the first round: Referees Francis Charron, Paul Devorski, Gord Dwyer, Eric Furlatt, Dave Jackson, Mark Joannette, Steve Kozari, Chris Lee, Wes McCauley, Brad Meier, Dean Morton, Dan OHalloran, Dan ORourke, Chris Rooney, Tim Peel, Kevin Pollock, Francois St.-Laurent, Justin St.Pierre, Kelly Sutherland, Brad Watson Linesmen Derek Amell, Steve Barton, David Brisebois, Lonnie Cameron, Scott Cherry, Michel Cormier, Greg Devorski, Scott Driscoll, Darren Gibbs, Shane Heyer, Brad Kovachik, Matt MacPherson, Steve Miller, Brian Murphy, Jonny Murray, Derek Nansen, Brian Pancich, Pierre Racicot, Jay Sharrers, Mark Shewchyk The hockey world will be watching closely as each of you display the courage and good judgment necessary to get the job done.
