SOCHI, Russia -- Team Canada isnt making any last-minute changes for its Olympic semifinal showdown against the United States. Save for Matt Duchene replacing the injured John Tavares, the lines and pairings are the same as they were in the quarter-final victory over Lativa and from Thursdays practice. Coach Mike Babcock was fired up not to have to make any changes. "Im pumped," Babcock said. "Were starting to look like a team and be like a team and youre organized like a team and you feel comfortable because youre not running around trying to do a million things. Its great." Duchene is back in after playing in two of Canadas first four games. Playing centre on the fourth line is part of the reason hes not worried about shaking some rust off. "Im back at my natural position, which is going to be nice," Duchene said. "And I played a lot of games on the big ice last year at centre so I know kind of what to expect in terms of that part of it as opposed to maybe playing on the wing." Duchene has represented Canada at three world championships, something that could give him an edge in recalling how things went wrong. "Helps a lot," he said. "Ive played a lot of games at Worlds last few years. Weve had some heartbreaking losses. You kind of have a little chip on your shoulder because you dont want to feel that again. Weve had some real heart-breakers there. Its time to win." Having been with this team for almost two weeks now, Babcock couldnt get a read on his team from a brief twirl at Bolshoy Ice Domes practice rink. But thats nothing new. "I cant get a feel in the morning skate in Detroit, either," he said. "Sometimes I think were the (76) Canadiens and the pucks going all over and then we dont do anything and sometimes I think our hands look like feet and we get out there and we play great. "Now we got to go out, we got a good plan, we got good people, now we got to go out and execute."

The division rivals will meet for the first of five scheduled encounters this season when the Predators visit the Avs for Tuesdays clash at Pepsi Center. With 36 points, Nashville is currently third in the Central and 12 points ahead of last-place Colorado. The Avalanche, of course, won the Central title last season, shocking their way to the division crown in Patrick Roys first campaign as an NHL head coach. Meanwhile, the Predators missed the playoffs for the second straight season last spring and finished 24 points behind Colorado in the division standings. Colorado enters this divisional battle on a three-game losing streak, but the Avs hope to turn things around tonight when they begin a three-game homestand. They are 5-6-2 in Denver this season. However, Nashville has won five of its past eight games at the Pepsi Center and halted a three-game skid in the Mile High City when it won 6-4 on Nov. 6 of last season. Colorado has taken two straight and five of the last seven meetings in this series overall. The Avs closed November by winning five of seven games, but Roys team is 0-2-1 at the start of December. Colorado last played Friday evening in Winnipeg and was handed a 6-2 loss by the Jets. Colorado was tied 1-1 with Winnipeg midway through the opening period, but the Jets broke the tie and took control of the contest with four unanswered goals. Jarome Iginla scored twice in the losing effort and Gabriel Landeskog assisted on both markers for the Avalanche. Iginla moved into sole possession of 21st on the NHLs all-time goals list with 565, surpassing Mats Sundin and Joe Nieuwendyk. Semyon Varlamov started the game and absorbed the loss after yielding five goals on 30 shots. Reto Berra came in after Varlamov was pulled and conceded a goal on seven shots in the setback. They were the better team tonight. They came out pretty strong and they put a lot of pressure on us, Coloorado head coach Patrick Roy said.dddddddddddd We didnt have a good game, thats all. Varlamov will miss tonights game after he aggravated a groin injury Monday at practice. The injury caused Colorados No. 1 netminder to miss time earlier this season. Calvin Pickard was recalled from Lake Erie of the American Hockey League and will get the start over Berra tonight. The 22-year-old rookie played well during Varlamovs previous absence and is 3-4-0 with a 2.49 goals against average this season. Colorado also will host Winnipeg on Thursday before capping this homestand Saturday against St. Louis. Nashville has lost two of three to begin the new month after closing November on a season-high four-game winning streak. The Preds recently split a two-game homestand, beating St. Louis on Thursday before dropping Saturdays decision against the Chicago Blackhawks. Chicago jumped out to a 2-0 lead in Nashville and the Predators only goal came off the stick off Colin Wilson just 34 seconds into the third period. Nashville, however, couldnt get any closer than 2-1 and Marian Hossa sealed the Blackhawks win with an empty-netter with 1:11 remaining. Victor Bartley and Mike Fisher assisted on Wilsons goal, while Pekka Rinne stopped 28-of-30 shots in the tough loss. Youre going to look at tonights game and break down the stats, Nashville coach Peter Laviolette said. The shots are the same, the chances are the same and the shots at the net are the same. They got one more than we did. We move forward from here and get ready for the next one. The Preds played Saturday without forward Paul Gaustad or defenseman Anton Volchenkov, who were both sidelined with lower-body injuries. They are both questionable for tonights tilt. Rinne is likely to start in net for Nashville. He owns an excellent 11-4-1 mark and 2.14 GAA in his career against Colorado. Beginning with tonights test, the Preds are playing three straight and six of their next seven games on the road. Nashville is 6-5-1 as the guest this season compared to a superb 11-2-1 mark in Music City.
