TORONTO -- Daniel Sedin knows the World Cup of Hockey may be his final chance to represent Sweden at a best-on-best tournament along with twin brother Henrik.With that in mind, theres no shortage of motivation for the 35-year-old Vancouver Canucks forwards heading into Sundays semifinal meeting with Team Europe.We realize as we get older theres not going to be a lot of these tournaments moving forward, Daniel Sedin said. We dont know about the (2018) Olympics yet, but were enjoying this. Were having a lot of fun and getting a chance to play in the semifinals, it was tough getting here.Were enjoying every day and well have some fun on Sunday.The last time Sweden won gold at a best-on-best tournament was the 2006 Olympics in Turin. Sweden lost to Canada in the gold medal game at the 2014 Sochi Games.Sweden won its round-robin opener at the World Cup 2-1 against Russia on Sunday and blanked Finland 2-0 on Wednesday before falling 4-3 in overtime to Team North America on Wednesday.The Swedes are hoping to learn from their loss against the Under-23 team moving forward. They were thoroughly outplayed early, quickly going down 2-0 before rallying to force overtime.I think we can definitely learn (about) being ready when the puck drops, those first 10 minutes were pretty embarrassing from our part, said defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson. The Europeans have some speed in their lineup as well so we have to be ready when the puck drops. We werent ready for Team North America, but somehow we managed to a big comeback there.After losing the first two pre-tournament games by a combined 11-4 score to the North Americans, Team Europe bounced back to defeat Sweden 6-2 in its final tune up game.They surprised us a little bit in the exhibition game, but they wont surprise us on Sunday, Sedin said. They wait for you to make mistakes, and then they create offence from that. Weve got to be careful on Sunday. We cant just go on offence like we did in that pre-tournament game.I think our defense was jumping a little bit too much and got too involved in the offense. I think we have to respect their forwards.Team Europe, made up of players from eight different countries, stunned the Americans 3-0 in the tournament opener and defeated the Czechs 3-2 in overtime before falling 4-1 to the Canadians on Wednesday.European captain Anze Kopitar pointed to the second period of the pre-tournament game against Team North America in Montreal as the turning point for the team of players unfamiliar with playing with one another.I think the first period in Montreal really opened our eyes and we really showed ourselves how we dont want to play, Kopitar said of the second pre-tournament game. After that, we kind of realized how we have to play: smart (and) with a lot of patience, theres no flash to it. Were playing a boring style of hockey, but its turned out to be a pretty successful one so were obviously proud in doing that and were going to continue doing that.The winner of Saturdays Canada-Russia semifinal will play the winner of Sweden-Europe in a best-of-three final beginning on Tuesday.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. -- Middle Tennessee coach Rick Stockstill is optimistic the Blue Raiders will have their starting quarterback cleared to return from a broken collarbone when they play Hawaii in the Hawaii Bowl.Brent Stockstill broke his right collarbone in the second quarter Nov. 5 in a 45-25 loss to UTSA, knocking the lefthander out of the final three games of the season. His backup, John Urzua, suffered a concussion in the Blue Raiders 77-56 win over Florida Atlantic in the regular season finale on Nov. 25 and has yet to be cleared as well.Rick Stockstill said his quarterback and son has been practicing for a while and is throwing the ball well.Each week we get an X-ray to see how the healing is coming along, and its coming along good, Stockstill said Tuesday. We dont know yet. We are preparing like its going to be OK, but we wont know that for another few days. Im optimistic with what Ive seen and what he has done so far. With John, (he) hasnt been cleared yet. ... I think by the time we leave for Hawaii he will be cleared, but today he is not.After losing their starting quarterback, the Blue Raiders won two of their final three games to finish 8-4 and be bowl eligible for the seventh time in the last eight seasons and eight of 11 in coach Stockstills tenure. They beat FAU after Urzua left after having throown only six passes by tapping wide receivers Richie James and Dennis Andrews and running back ITavius Mathers to throw at least one pass apiece in winning the game.ddddddddddddtockstill tried to talk his way back onto the field in that game, but his coach and father stood firm.Having Stockstill back for the bowl game Dec. 24 against Hawaii (6-7) will be a big boost for Middle Tennessee. The 6-foot, 206-pound redshirt sophomore already has school records for 57 career touchdown passes and 13 300-yard passing games along with averaging 297.7 yards passing per game.Hes a big reason why Middle Tennessee ranked ninth in total offense with 515.7 yards per game and 12th in passing offense with 317 yards passing per game. Stockstill has completed 63.9 percent of his passes for 2,801 yards with 27 touchdowns and five interceptions this season.Stockstill said Tuesday he feels healthy.I feel like if it was up to me, Id say Im ready to go, but its not up to me, Stockstill said. Well just keep checking in with the doctors. Im very optimistic about it, but Im not going to get my hopes up. Well see what happens.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 .
