Wednesday, June 29, 2011 (All times Eastern) Vancouver (2-6-9) at Toronto FC (2-7-9), 7:30 p.m. Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Vancouver Whitecaps FC debuted in Major League Soccer on March 19 with a win over Toronto FC, but the Canadian clubs meet for the second time over three months later with just four combined wins. Vancouver has won just one time since that win over Toronto, going just 1-6-9, while Toronto has not played much better since that match at Empire Field, as it has a 2-6-9 record over its last 17 games. Now, Vancouver and Toronto FC clash at BMO Field on Wednesday with both hoping to turn their league seasons around, and gain a little momentum ahead of their Canadian Cup showdown Saturday. Both are equally important, especially because we need results in the season. Were struggling right now, Toronto midfielder Gianluca Zavarise said. We need to get some positive results going forward. Obviously the Canadian Cup, we need to win that, he continued. We need to advance and get something and stay positive. Vancouver and Toronto FC tied the first match of the Cup final, 1-1, at Empire Field, and the Whitecaps were leading the second match 1-0 in the 60th minute when the match was called due to lightning and poor field conditions. The second game will be replayed from the start Saturday at BMO Field, erasing Eric Hasslis goal from the abandoned match. The winner claims a berth in the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League. But right now, neither side seems capable of being competitive in that event. Toronto (2-7-9) lost 3-1 to Real Salt Lake on Saturday. And coach Aron Winter praised the 2011 CONCACAF Champions League runners-up after the match. What can you say? We were playing against one of the best teams in MLS, said Winter. Salt Lake was the best team, for me, that weve played against. Toronto did get a goal from Maicon Santos in the loss, his sixth of the year. But the club failed to play consistently against Real and needs to improve. We needed to fight harder all game instead of going on little bursts here and there, Zavarise said. No excuses, its got to be a lot better. Vancouver (2-6-9) defeated the Philadelphia Union, 1-0, two weeks ago to end a 14-game slide that dated back to the season-opening 4-2 win over Toronto, but lost its match Saturday to Sporting Kansas City, 2-1. I always like to watch the video and analyze what we did. Obviously were disappointed. We came off a win and wanted to follow up with another one, so its back to work, Vancouver coach Tom Soehn said after the loss. Camilio scored his fifth goal of the season to give the Whitecaps the lead but Sporting rallied for the win. Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit gave up a penalty, and left the match at halftime with a recurring groin injury. He admitted Vancouver needs to improve, especially with the back-to-back games against Toronto on the horizon. Well look at that and hopefully learn from these types of things, and how we can get back into games and continue our energy, DeMerit said, because we didnt do that. We have two important games coming up. www.jerseypatriots.com/Jersey-Austin-Collie/ . Trailing 3-1 and down to their final at bat, the Astros placed runners on second and third with two outs before Michael Bourn ripped a game-tying double down the right field line. After Clint Barmes was hit by a pitch, Pence lifted a 1-0 cutter over short and Bourn barely beat the throw home to complete the exhilarating comeback. www.jerseypatriots.com/Jersey-Joe-Vellano/ . The IceDogs netminder made 26 saves for his second straight shutout and league-leading sixth of the season as Niagara hammered the Belleville Bulls 6-0 on Thursday night. http://www.jerseypatriots.com/Jersey-Ryan-Wendell/. - Radim Vrbata had been plagued for two weeks by an allergic reaction to penicillin. www.jerseypatriots.com/Jersey-Sebastian-Vollmer/ . Louis Blues in Game 3 at Staples Center. The Kings won the franchises first Stanley Cup last spring, but find themselves down 2-0 in this best-of-seven series after dropping two straight in St. www.jerseypatriots.com/Jersey-John-Hannah/ . The result meant that Cape Verde also reached the quarterfinals in its first major tournament after beating Angola 2-1 in a game that took place simultaneously in Port Elizabeth. Morocco finished third in the group.Vancouver Canucks general manager Mike Gillis is not about to push the panic button, despite mounting injuries on his clubs second line. Already without centre Ryan Kesler - who is still recovering from off-season shoulder and wrist surgeries - the Canucks were dealt another blow this week when it was announced that forward David Booth would miss four-to-six weeks with a groin injury. However, with two-thirds of his second line now in the sick bay, Gillis isnt feeling any added pressure to trade goaltender Roberto Luongo. "We were anticipating injuries coming out of a really short camp and the first couple weeks of the season so from our end it hasnt changed anything," Gillis told TSNs Thats Hockey on Wednesday. "I think any general manager in this league would be reluctant to part with a player of this quality and a person of this quality." Despite Luongo likely being the odd-man out in the Canucks crease with the teams increasing reliance on his one-time back-up Cory Schneider, Gillis is not looking past what Luongo has achieved in his six seasons in Vancouver. "When you look back at Robertos record and Vezina Trophy nominations, Jennings Trophy [win], Hart Trophy nominations, the pedigree is there." As he has maintained all along, Gillis is also prepared to enter the season with both netminders in the fold, it would just mean more competition for playing time. "Theyre going to be used like they have been the past year: Whoevers gonna give us the best opportunity to win is gonna be in net and particularly in a shortened season theres gonna be a lot of hockey played in a short period of time," he told TSN. "We have the utmost confidence in both our goalies. We have a chance to win every game we play with either one of those guys in net.dddddddddddd." That said, Gillis admitted that there is still a market for Luongos services. He revealed that he had spoken to a team as recently as Wednesday morning about a possible trade and that he has "been in contact with four-to-five teams off-and-on over the past week" about the 33-year-old keeper. "I only see that continuing to get greater," he said. "Lots of things are gonna happen here early on and, like I said, parting with an All-Star player - particularly a goalie - is not something you do every day and were gonna try and do the best for our organization and for Roberto." As far as the holes on the second line, Gillis intends to support his top trio of Henrik Sedin, Daniel Sedin and Alexandre Burrows with competition from within the organization. Mason Raymond should remain in a second-line capacity having shown in the past that he can put up points if given the opportunity. The 27-year-old notched a career-high 25 goals and 53 points in 2009-10 with the Canucks, but has been hampered by injuries over the last two seasons. He appeared in only 55 games in 2011-12. Still, Gillis said Raymond has looked good early on in training camp, as has 21-year-old Zack Kassian, whom the Canucks acquired last season from Buffalo in a deal that sent Cody Hodgson to the Sabres. As far as centre goes on the second line, the job appears to be up for grabs between veteran Andrew Ebbett and 2009 first-rounder Jordan Schroeder. So, even if the season begins with Luongo in a Canucks uniform, Gillis is intrigued by the possibilities percolating in training camp. "Were comfortable with what we have," he said. "It gives some younger players an opportunity to step up and shine." ' ' '
