HERNING www.senatorsshoponline.com , Denmark (AP) Danish hockey is on the rise, even though the Danish hockey team has been knocked out of the world championships.The national team’s early elimination at its first world championships on home ice can hardly overshadow the boost the tournament has given the sport in the country.”I hope it spreads awareness of hockey in Denmark for a lot of families and hopefully they’ll try to get their kids to play hockey,” Columbus Blue Jackets forward Oliver Bjorkstrand said. ”Hopefully it gets more hockey kids involved and more media attention on hockey, of course. It’s something we’re hoping for at this tournament.”The progress has been obvious.In 2003, Denmark advanced to the top international division for the first time in 54 years and has not been relegated since. The country reached the quarterfinals twice and managed to beat big teams, including the United States.Center Frans Nielsen then opened a new era in 2007 by joining the New York Islanders. Currently with the Detroit Red Wings, Nielsen has 423 points in the NHL with 152 goals and 271 assists in 764 games.Others soon followed.Denmark currently has seven players in the NHL, and five of them played for their country at this year’s worlds Ottawa Senators T-Shirts Womens , including Nielsen and Bjorkstrand. The others were Toronto Maple Leafs No. 1 goaltender Frederik Andersen and two San Jose Sharks forwards, Jannik Hansen and Mikkel Boedker.In 2011, Hansen became the first Dane to play the Stanley Cup finals with the Vancouver Canucks.At the world championships, Denmark beat Germany, Finland, Norway and South Korea but lost to Latvia 1-0 on Tuesday and missed out on the quarterfinals.Perhaps the absence of two Danish forwards currently busy in the NHL playoffs played a role in that.Lars Eller has five goals and seven assists in 15 playoff games for the Washington Capitals, who lead their Eastern Conference final against the Tampa Bay Lightning 2-1. Nikolaj Ehlers had a 60-point regular season with 29 goals and 31 assists for the Winnipeg Jets and has seven assists in the Western Conference final against the Vegas Golden Knights. That series is tied 1-1.”That’s been a long way (for Danish hockey),” Nielsen said. ”It’s been incredible and we’re proud of where we are today.”At this year’s worlds Ottawa Senators Hoodies Womens , Denmark enjoyed huge support from the roaring home fans mostly wearing red and white jerseys at their games in Herning. After the victories, the crowd and players sang the Danish national anthem together.”The whole city backs us up here,” said Nielsen, who is from Herning. ”It’s been incredible.” RALEIGH, N.C. — The Carolina Hurricanes put together a start to the season that matched the best in franchise history.Now after a couple of blips, it’s time to regroup.The Hurricanes return to home ice for Saturday afternoon’s game against the Colorado Avalanche at PNC Arena.Article continues below ...Carolina lost in regulation for the first time this season in its past two games after a 4-0-1 start.“We’ve been working on some things,” coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “We spent time on special teams, obviously.”Carolina gave up a hat trick to Tampa Bay’s Tyler Johnson on Tuesday.Colorado is coming off Thursday night’s 5-3 victory at New Jersey Ottawa Senators Hats Womens , where captain Gabriel Landeskog logged a hat trick.“That’s why he’s the captain, that’s why he’s our leader,” defenseman Ian Cole said. “A lot of guys stepped up, but him especially.”Three points in the first two games of a four-game East Coast trip have given the Avalanche a good vibe.“To get off to a start like that, guys are having fun,” Landeskog said. “It’s important to get a win when you stay patient and work for everything you get.”The Hurricanes have relied on an aggressive style and fast starts in games this season. The Avalanche might be playing the style that can match that.“I think (Landeskog) had our team focused and ready to go,” Colorado coach Jared Bednar said of the game against New Jersey. “I thought we were the aggressors to start the game.”Brind’Amour said the Hurricanes need to straighten out the power play, but he’s generally content with what he has seen five-on-five.“We’re giving up chances Custom Ottawa Senators Jerseys , but that’s going to happen,” he said.Still, the Hurricanes have made a roster move, bringing forward Clark Bishop up from Charlotte of the American Hockey League. Rookie center Martin Necas, after scoring his first NHL goal earlier in the week, and defenseman Haydn Fleury were sent to the AHL club.Bishop will get a chance to show how he has progressed, working on the fourth line.“We want to see (do) what he has done all training camp and those games down in Charlotte,” Brind’Amour said. “He’s energy. We’re expecting good www.flyersshoponline.com , hard, honest effort.”Necas doesn’t figure to be down in the minors for long, Brind’Amour said. But this provides a chance for him to refine some areas.“He’s an NHL-caliber talent,” Brind’Amour said. “He’s playing a tough position at center. We need to get him a little more ready away from the puck. I want him to have confidence when he comes back to us.”It appears that the return of goalie Scott Darling might be a bit away as he comes back from a preseason groin injury. He has returned to practice, but he’s not likely to be on the ice Saturday.“You don’t want to push it too soon,” Brind’Amour said.Right winger Sebastian Aho has at least one point in each of Carolina’s first seven games.The Carolina home game is a rarity for this weekend, with the North Carolina State Fair going on at the grounds adjacent to the arena.
