Harvey, from St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., finished the Nordic track filled with steeps climbs and fast descents in 35 minutes 50.2 seconds. "This is heavy racing right now being an Olympic year. Many of the Norwegians, Swedes and Russians are all fighting for spots at the Games so are skiing extremely fast," said Justin Wadsworth, the head coach of Canadas cross-country ski team. "Right now there is no Olympic pressure on us so we need to keep calm and stay focused on the process because you dont want to be going this hard this early in the game." Norways Paul Golberg won the mens classic ski race with a time of 35:00.0. Alexey Poltoranin of Kazakhstan skied to the silver medal time at 35:14.2. Norways Didrik Toenseth was third in 35:15.5. Ivan Babikov of Canmore, Alta., placed 35th at 36:23.6, Devon Kershaw (37:03.7) of Sudbury, Ont., finished 56th and Jesse Cockney (37:44.2) of Canmore, Alta., was 68th. "Obviously we are hoping for a bit better, but it is coming slowly," said Wadsworth. "This is all normal where nobody is feeling very good coming off such a high volume of training. It is just the way it is and we have to be patient." No Canadian women suited up on Saturday. Polands Justyna Kowalczyk won the womens 10-kilometre classic ski race with a time of 25:59.4. Kowalczyk finished 12.4 seconds ahead of Charlotte Kalla of Sweden. More impressively, Kowalczyk beat triple Olympic champion Marit Bjoergen of Norway by 25.6 seconds to send an early message ahead of the Sochi Games. Bjoergen finished third ahead of fellow Norwegian Therese Johaug. "My skis were perfect today and I was really good," the Polish skier said. "Its a really good feeling." Kowalczyk has now won 13 of the last 19 classical-style distance races on the World Cup. ------ With files from the Associated Press Trey Lyles Jersey . Pistorius denied the allegation that he said to the close friend of the girlfriend he killed: "How can you sleep at night?"

The Arrows defeated the Coquitlam Adanacs 14-8 on Saturday night at the Langley Events Centre, taking the best-of-seven series 4-2. Coquitlam threw everything they had at Six Nations in Game 6, but the Arrows held off the charge as they captured their third ever Minto Cup in franchise history. "We knew they werent going to lay down," said Arrows coach Marshall Abrams. "We wanted to at least tie the first two periods and then go hard in the third, and we did that," he said. "Hats off to Coquitlam for a heck of a series." After losing the first two, the Arrows won four straight games to claim the title, their first since 2007. "After those two losses, we just had to get our mind focused and get the jitters out," said Quinn Powless, who had a goal and five assists in Game 6. "We knew we were the better team and we proved it." Johnny Powless was named Tournament MVP, as the Arrows captain scored 29 points (8g, 21a) in six games. "Weve been working so hard for this trophy," said J. Powless. "I grew up with all these guys, theyre all family. This means the world to us". Along with Powless, the Arrows were backed by some outstanding goaltending. Doug Jamieson stopped 225 of the Adanacs 266 shots in thee series, including some crucial saves at key moments.

Coquitlam looked to be in control after the first two games of the series, but it wasnt meant to be for the Adanacs. "We knew it was a matter of time before we saw their best games," said head coach Neil Doddridge. "They seemed to get better in games three and four. They were really transitioning to the ball well and that got us in trouble." "It was a hard fought series," said Adanacs captain Wesley Berg. "Sometimes the score didnt really show it. We put it all on the line and we played for each other but it sucks not to win it." "It was a great series with two great teams playing the game the right way," said Doddridge. We emptied the tank the last six days, you cant ask for much more from the guys." "The focus was there all series long," said Abrams. "After the first two games, the boys realized what it took to win the Minto Cup. They realized the dedication and determination needed," he said. "Its been seven years since our last cup, so were going to have some fun tonight."
