MALMO, Sweden -- Brent Sutter had never lost a game as a coach at the world junior championship. It seems there is a first time for everything. Canada battled back four times from one-goal deficits only to lose 5-4 in a shootout to the Czechs on Saturday in their second group stage game. "Its irrelevant," said the 51-year-old coach, whose record at three world junior tournaments, including gold medals in 2005 and 2006, is now 13-0-1. "That has nothing to do with why Im coaching here. "Its about giving these kids an opportunity to succeed." It was a game that saw 16-year-old phenom Connor McDavid benched in the third period after taking two minor penalties that led to Czech goals, then waste a chance to redeem himself by losing the puck on Canadas final shootout attempt. And it prompted Sutter to hint strongly that Zachary Fucale will get his first start in goal against Slovakia on Monday after Jake Paterson allowed four goals on 29 shots, and two more in the shootout. "Im not saying he had his best game," said Sutter. "But there are others that didnt play to their level for 60 minutes either. Hes a good goalie. Im sure hed like to have a couple of those goals back." However, the main message from Sutter was that it was a learning experience for a young Canadian squad. "Whenever you put the Canadian jersey on youre expected to win, but the reality is youre not going to," he said. "Its how you deal with it. Itll make us a better team." The Czechs, now 1-12-2 against Canada in world junior play, were heavy underdogs after losing their tournament opener 5-1 to the Americans, but they signalled they were ready by using some hustle to score the first goal through David Kampf only 7:10 in to the game. The Czechs, however, had trouble holding on to their lead. Sam Reinhart tied it later in the first. Michal Plutnar put the Czechs ahead, but Jonathan Drouin equalized. Vojtech Tomecek scored and then Aaron Ekblad scored short handed. Jakub Vrana scored, but Charles Hudon tied it at 13:01 of the third to force a five-minute overtime and the shootout. Drouin scored on the first shot, but David Pastrnak scored and Dominik Simon won it by beating Paterson with the Peter Forsberg move -- a cut to the left and a reach back to tuck the puck in. "He did a pretty solid move there and unfortunately, I couldnt stretch out quite enough," said Paterson. "I wasnt too sure what these guys moves were, but I dont think you can blame the loss on that. In a shootout, you do the best you can. But the focus now turns to our next game." McDavids game started well. He initiated a tic-tac-toe play on a power play for Canadas first goal with linemates Bo Horvat and Reinhart, but things went downhill when he was called for hooking in the second frame and saw Plutnar score his second of the tournament one second after the penalty expired. The Erie Otters star nullified a power play when he was sent off again for hooking 4:05 into the third and Tomecek scored two seconds later. Then he sat for a while. "I thought at times, with Connor, his youth showed," said Sutter. "Hes an exceptional player, but this is the world junior level and at times thats going to happen with young players. He wasnt the only one." Still, when the shootout came, he didnt hesitate to pick McDavid, who had been scoring on them in practice. "Hes a big part of our team and hes going to continue to be a big part of the team, so theres no reason not to use a player of his calibre in a shootout," he said. "Unfortunately he wasnt able to make the move he wanted, but hell learn from it and hell be better for it." Sutter was more concerned about loose play, particularly on two Czech goals scored off faceoffs in Canadas end, and a second period in which the gap between the defence and the forwards at times grew well past Sutters limits. That came after a strong first that saw Canada have a 13-5 shot advantage and force Marek Langhammer to make a handful of strong saves. Afterward, the players were told to put it behind them to concentrate on Slovakia, who looked dangerous despite a 6-3 loss to the U.S. earlier Thursday. "Theres a bunch of things we need to fix," said Ekblad. "We need to be more passionate about doing the little things to win. But its a learning experience and were going to come out of it." "Obviously its disappointing, but its one game," added Reinhart. "Our focus is quickly onto the next one. Weve all been part of international tournaments in the past and its all good competition. You go through a lot of adversity." The back and forth battle had the mostly Canadian crowd of 3,011 at the Isstadion on the edge of their seats. It also thrilled the Czechs, who had been beaten 8-1, 7-2 and 5-0 the last times they faced Canada at the world juniors. "We are so happy," said the shootout hero Simon. "Its my first win against Canada, so Im really happy." The result left Canada second in its group with four points, two behind the Americans and one ahead of the Czechs, with their two toughest games still to play against the Slovaks and Americans. "Czech played a heck of a game," said Sutter. "Whoever plays Canada, its the biggest game of the tournament. It was a reality check for us. Every period is important because you know the oppositions always going to have their game at a high level." And he wasnt going to get bummed out by it, even if he had never lost a game before. "We lost in a shootout, its not like we got blown out," he said. Mario Edwards Jr Jersey .

Kopitar, Jeff Carter and rookie Tanner Pearson each had a goal and an assist for the surging Kings, who have all but locked up third place in the Pacific Division and a first-round post-season matchup with California rivals San Jose or Anaheim. Thomas Greiss stopped 28 shots for the Coyotes, whose playoff hopes have been hurt by three straight losses. Phoenix and Dallas are even in eighth place in the Western Conference with 85 points apiece, but the Stars have seven games still to play -- two more than the Coyotes. Phoenix hadnt been shut out since a 2-0 loss to Columbus on Jan. 2, but the Coyotes managed few good chances against Quick and the Kings formidable defence. Quicks shutout was the 31st of his career, leaving him one shy of tying Rogie Vachons franchise record. Quick, whose six shutouts are second-most in the NHL behind Bostons Tuukka Rask, passed Vachon to become the winningest goalie in Kings history last month. Pearson scored his third career goal and Alec Martinez had two assists for the Kings, who had lost three straight to Phoenix. Los Angeles has been outstanding since the Olympic break, winning 14 of 18 on the way to its fifth consecutive playoff berth. The Kings have won seven of eight oover the past two weeks, solidifying their post-season plans after a prolonged skid before the break.dddddddddddd. Los Angeles took the lead just 1:20 after the opening faceoff when Jeff Carter feathered a beautiful cross-ice pass to Pearson, who dropped to one knee to take the shot. Pearson, the Kings first-round pick in 2012, has earned a regular lineup spot after just 22 games in his rookie season. Doughty scored early in the second period, putting a shot behind Carters moving screen. The two-time, gold medal-winning defenceman played an outstanding two-way game, passing and shooting with the formidable skill showcased while playing for Canada in Sochi. Carter scored on an end-to-end rush midway through the third period, forcing a turnover and blowing a shot past Greiss. Kopitar scored his 25th goal of the season 40 seconds later on a vicious one-timer, giving the Slovenian centre six 25-goal seasons in his career. Los Angeles (45-26-6) needs one more victory to match the franchise record of 46, done three times previously. The Kings, who have won eight straight road games, visit the Shark Tank on Thursday night to open a four-game trip. NOTES: C Martin Hanzal went to the Phoenix dressing room for several minutes in the first period after getting hurt by an elbow from Jordan Nolan, who received a minor penalty. ... Martinez has 14 points in his last 16 games. ... Greiss made his fifth straight start in place of Mike Smith, who has an injured right knee.
