CALGARY – Nearly six months remain until the chase for gold begins anew in Sochi, but for members of Team Canada the work has already begun, much of it hinging on perhaps the biggest adjustment required for a repeat of gold in 2014. "I like the big ice," grinned Rick Nash, who is among 46 players on hand in Calgary for a brief, three-day orientation camp ahead of the 2014 Olympics in February. The Canadians emerged with gold for the second time in three Olympics on home turf in Vancouver. However, their most recent bid for a medal on international ice was an all-out dud, a seventh-place finish in Turin, Italy in 2006. Mindful of that stinging experience and its breadth of lessons on the larger ice surface, Team Canada is taking steps to ensure that a repeat failure isnt in the cards in Russia. Start with the hiring of Ralph Krueger, the former Oilers coach and longtime leader of the Swiss National program. "We brought Ralph on board because he knows way more about the big ice than we do," Canadian head coach Mike Babcock said of Krueger, who steered the bench in Switzerland for upwards of a decade, finishing a surprising sixth at the most recent games in Vancouver. Joining a staff that already includes Lindy Ruff, Claude Julien, and Ken Hitchcock, Kruegers expertise was already being put to use early on Sunday morning, as the Winnipeg native fielded a query from Julien in regards to a penalty killing tactic, of which the latter will lead for the Canadians. "No one knows better than him," Babcock said of Krueger. "Thats why Ralphs with us. Hes going to do a lot of work in advance for us." Beginning with a meeting on Sunday evening, the coaching staff plans to make good use of their short window with players this week, introducing "details" and "terminology" of the system to be employed in Sochi, walking through such systems on a boarded ice surface at the Markin MacPhail Centre on Monday morning. "What you do in the next three days, weve learned over time, really matters," said Hitchcock, who has served as an associate coach for Canada at the past three Olympics. "Because all of us, at the end of this event, we get onto our own [NHL] teams and we dont think about [the Olympics] until we get on the plane [to go to Russia]." "Were going to get our team prepared here," Babcock added, stressing the importance of players becoming familiar with one another along with a need to understand the preparation, pressure and expectations demanded of those that make the team. "A lot of the details are going to be put into place here, just for spacing, for understanding what your job is, and how you have to play. And then when we arrive there we can hit the ground running as we reintroduce our terminology and reintroduce our program." Of the mindset the coaching staff will try to instill this week as it relates to the increased dimensions of the international rink – 15 feet wider than the NHL surface – Krueger suggested a need to remain glued to the "Canadian game and not adjust to some of the spaces that suddenly arise". "You need to make sure that you dont change your game or make too many adjustments that will weaken what makes Canada strong," said Krueger. "I think the sucker play is that you have more space [and] you have more time so the tendency is to take more time," added Hitchcock, expanding on the ideas offered by Krueger. "Its the big mistake. To me, when we play well as Canadians we play fast defensively and faster offensively. "Thats what were emphasizing here with the players in the next three days is we cant lose perspective of how we play." Mindful of the big ice and its required adjustments, Canadas brass is open to making considerable changes from the squad that won gold in 2010, open to the idea of a different-looking team in 2014. Kevin Lowe, the assistant executive director of the unsuccessful squad in Italy and a member of the current management group, noted the need for players who can move their feet and the puck with swiftness and precision. "There could be a number of changes from the goal-medal team in 2010 in Vancouver," he said. But as Steve Yzerman, the executive director of the program, was quick to note, the top players wont be overlooked if theyre simply not the fleetest of foot. "Were not just going to take the 14 fastest forwards and the eight fastest defencemen," said Yzerman, who took gold home as a player with Team Canada in 2002 and then again as the executive director in 2010. "Theres going to be some players on this team that are just simply too good to leave off and you wouldnt consider them race-horses." Without actually hitting the ice per se, those players on hand for the camp will do their best to soak up details of the game that will define the Canadian squad in Russia, a slightly different style perhaps from the one that captured gold in the rear-view mirror of Vancouver. "I guess the obvious answer is just the space out there," Sidney Crosby said of perspective adjustments. "But other than that I dont think you change a whole lot. I think that if anything you have a little bit more time to make decisions and things are typically a little bit slower, but I think for the most part you try not to change too much." "Like Sid said, theres just small things," concluded Nash, who tasted disaster in Turin and bliss in Vancouver. "Its different angles, its a bit more skating – you can drift to the outside a little more if youre not careful. But for me personally, Ive played a lot on the big ice and I enjoy it."

Barcelona, still without the injured Lionel Messi, again turned to Neymar after his hat trick against Celtic in the Champions League on Wednesday to convert a penalty on the half-hour mark and restore the lead in the 68th after Villarreal levelled. OAKLAND, Calif. -- Adam Dunn is in a pennant race at last, and what an impression he made on his new team as the September stretch run began. Dunn provided instant pop for the struggling Athletics, hitting a towering, two-run homer in his debut at-bat for Oakland to highlight a 6-1 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday in a matchup of playoff contenders. "I can speak pretty passionately about it, these chances dont come around very often, especially for some of us," said the 34-year-old Dunn, who has never played in the post-season. "Were going to take full advantage." Acquired a day earlier in a trade with the Chicago White Sox, the 6-foot-6, 285-pound Dunn immediately became an imposing presence in the middle of Oaklands order. Dunn is the 12th player in Oakland history to homer in his first at-bat with the team. A 14th-year major leaguer, Dunn homered during a five-run first inning. His drive was a welcome sight for a team that just got swept in a four-game series by the AL West-leading Los Angeles Angels and was shut out for 29 straight innings. "Thats the most excited, anxious, probably call it a little nervous, than Ive been in a long time," said Dunn, who was thrown off by the celebratory tunnel formed by teammates in the dugout. The As broke loose a day after manager Bob Melvin let them have it in a closed-door team meeting. He called his teams play "embarrassing and "pathetic" after the As totalled just four runs in the sweep at Anaheim. "They ran the opening kickoff back for a touchdown and the game was over," Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said. "It wasnt our day." Dunn went 2 for 3 batting cleanup as the designated hitter. He provided a nice lift for an Oakland offence that has struggled since dealing Yoenis Cespedes to Boston for Jon Lester on July 31. With 461 career home runs, Dunn tied Red Sox star David Ortiz for 35th place on the all-time list. Dunn quickly staked Jason Hammel (2-5) to a lead. Hammel also started the season in Chicago, and was traded by the Cubs in July. "It had a little bit of a storybook-type theme," Melvin said of Dunns debut. "Weve really been lacking early energy, runs, he comes up to the plate and youre thinking to yourself, Boy, wouldnt it be great? And he delivers..dddddddddddd. You got goosebumps. It was awesome." Hammel allowed three hits and struck out five in eight innings to end a three-start winless stretch. It was just his second win since joining the As from the Cubs on July 4. Another recent acquisition, Geovany Soto, added a two-run single with two outs in the first that chased Chris Young (12-7) for the shortest start of his career. A sellout crowd of 36,067 saw the As win after a stretch in which they lost five of six. "Thats the best crowd Ive ever played with," Dunn said. "Im serious. Its unbelievable. If its like that every night here, its going to be a fun little ride." Brad Miller homered leading off the sixth for Seattle, which came into the series opener as the American Leagues top road team. Robinson Canos 21-game hitting streak against the As ended. It dated to Sept. 22, 2012. TRAINERS ROOM Mariners: OF Michael Saunders, on the disabled list since July 11 with a strained left oblique, reported to Arizona to work on strengthening and get some at-bats in simulated games before the club determines the next step in his rehab. Athletics: CF Coco Crisp will have more trigger-point injections for neck stiffness after colliding with the outfield wall Friday. He hit batting practice right-handed. C John Jaso (concussion) swung in the indoor cage and hopes to hit outside Tuesday. UP NEXT Mariners: LHP James Paxton (4-1, 1.83) makes his first career appearance against the As as he looks to win his second straight start. Paxton is 7-1 with a 1.71 ERA in 11 career starts. Athletics: RHP Sonny Gray (13-7, 3.03) is 4-0 with a 1.10 ERA in his first five starts against Seattle, his most victories against any team. ROSTER MOVES Mariners: Placed 1B-DH Jesus Montero on the suspended list. The 24-year-old Montero was recalled from his rehabilitation assignment Friday following a verbal altercation with a Mariners scout at a Class A Northwest League game. ... September call-up RHP Carson Smith made his major league debut in the eighth. He threw two pitches and retired Josh Donaldson on a grounder. Athletics: Reinstated SS Jed Lowrie from the 15-day disabled list and he singled in his first at-bat since Aug. 13. He suffered a hairline fracture of his right index finger Aug. 4.
