He tied it at 1 with a wrist shot, and scored on a power play to make it 3-1 with his sixth goal of the tournament. "We conceded a goal but then we showed our character and replied," Tikhonov said. "We have to play for 100 per cent the whole game." Sergei Shirokov and Sergei Kalinin also had a goal apiece. Miks Indrasis one-timed the puck past Russia goaltender Sergei Bobrovski to give Latvia an early lead. "The best thing is that we keep winning," Kalinin said.

She held a 5-2 lead in the second set, only to let Riske tie it at five.VANCOUVER - His first name is Hunter, but he protects the hunted. The B.C. Lions are hoping rookie offensive lineman Hunter Steward, slated to make his first CFL start, will be up to the task Saturday as they seek revenge for a loss earlier this season against the Montreal Alouettes. Steward, a 22-year-old Victoria, B.C., native, has taken the field for only three snaps this season, but the Lions are counting on him to help shore up their rotating left tackle spot and provide key pass protection and run-blocking. The Lions (1-2) could not handle Montreals constantly stunting defence in a one-sided July 4 loss as the Alouettes (1-2) earned their only win this season. Watch the game live on TSN, tonight at 7pm et/4pm pt. "It means a lot to me (to start)," said Steward, who played collegiately at Liberty in the U.S. "Ive wanted to play professional football for a long time. It wasnt football for my whole life, because Ive played many other sports. But Ive wanted to be a professional football player for many years now. Its come to fruition now and its exciting." But the Lions hunt for a permanent replacement for retired former all-star left tackle Ben Archibald has been less than thrilling - largely due to injuries, including one suffered by Steward early in training camp. Steward, drafted sixth overall by the Lions in 2013, will become B.Cs third different starting left tackle in four games. He faces a difficult test to perform well and stay healthy, because his backup, Jemarcus Hardrick, only joined the team recently. Ryan Cave, brought in as an emergency replacement, was released earlier this week after starting the past two games. Standing six-foot-seven and weighing 320 pounds, Steward provides plenty of brawn, but his body has proved brittle at times. He has battled his way to a starting role after suffering a sprained knee ligament in training camp and undergoing surgery to repair a torn shoulder labrum in the off-season. He said the shoulder, which required just one internal stitch, is fully healthy again, and his knee has almost reached that point. As a result, it wont be "a stretch" to step into the starting role after playing only in short-yardage situations in last weekends win over Saskatchewan. "It is only three (plays), but even just getting in there once gives you a sense of the speed (of the game)," he said. Steward and the rest of the offensive line will try to help quarterback Kevin Glenn get passes off quickly after he was intercepted twice and constantly pressured in the last meeting with the Als. Montreal held B.C. to 70 net yards in the first half of that contest and did not surrender a touchdown until the final minute. "They beat us last time, so thats added motivation," said Glenn. "You dont usually get a chance to play a team (again) this quick unless its like the Labour Day challenges - especially a team that actually beat you … Call it revenge. Andrew Billings Jersey. " Glenn, who did not throw an interception against Saskatchewan, said the offensive line will play a critical role as the offence tries to penetrate Montreals defence. "It starts up front," he said. "Every team is built up front. Whether its defensive line or offensive line, its built in the trenches. And when you have guys that put out efforts like they did last week, the majority of the time you win. So thats something we want to sharpen - especially with this (Montreal) team, because this team was built on aggressiveness. So we want to match that. We want to fight aggression with aggression." But Montreal coach Tom Higgins, whose club is looking to rebound from a loss to Winnipeg, said the experience level of B.C.s offensive line wont make a difference to the Als defensive strategy. "Even if its the most veteran offensive line, were gonna put a lot of people in the blocks, were gonna come after you and were gonna see if we can cause confusion and put pressure on the quarterback," said Higgins. "If you dont tell them that its coming, they cant countermine. Its a matter of creating that illusion that you dont know where its coming from." There wasnt much doubt where B.C.s success originated last weekend in Regina. Running back Andrew Harris rushed for 138 yards and caught passes for 65 more against Saskatchewan. His combined 203 yards earned him CFL offensive and Canadian player of the week honours. Like Glenn, Harris is looking for the offensive linemen to work as one unit to help him continue to excel. "If theyre not doing the right thing, then Im not doing the right thing," said Harris. "I need to count on them and they need to count on me to make the right read." Lions coach Mike Benevides said he is not ready to "crown" a permanent new left offensive tackle yet. He wants the offensive line and all other parts of his team to continue to improve - and deliver a much better showing than in the first encounter with the Als this season. "It was an embarrassment," said Benevides. "It really hurt, because were a lot better football team than that." Notes — Lions defensive lineman Khalif Mitchell will miss the game due to an upper-body injury suffered against Saskatchewan. Brandon Jordan will take his roster spot while Jabar Westerman assumes his starting post. … Als running back Steven Lumbala is out with a concussion, missing a chance to play against his brother Rollies squad. Meanwhile, Als DB Jamaan Webb has been placed on the six-game injury list with a broken arm that required the insertion of a plate and screws.
