Hertha striker Adrian Ramos scored twice in nine minutes to cancel out Nils Petersens 15th-minute opening strike, set up by Aaron Hunt on his 200th Bundesliga appearance. Bremen defender Theodor Gebre Selassie bundled Per Skjelbred over in the 17th and Ramos duly equalized from the penalty spot, before Skjelbred played the Hertha striker through to score again from a narrow angle. Hunt equalized four minutes after that, with Peterson returning the favour from earlier to set the Bremen captain up. Crowd favourite Ronny made it 3-2 three minutes into the second half, tucking away what proved to be the winner from a rebound after Raphael Wolf saved Peter Pekariks initial header. "We found it very hard to get into the game. Of course Bremen have their offensive qualities, but we werent proactive enough," said Hertha coach Jos Luhukay after his 50th Bundesliga game. "We had to fight right to the end." Hertha cleared the ball off the line after Hunts late free kick slipped through Thomas Krafts fingers onto the post to hold on for the promoted sides seventh win from 16 games. Bremen, which lost 7-0 to Bayern Munich last weekend, hasnt won in five games and remains 14th before the rest of the 16th round. "Were simply not learning from our mistakes. Week after week its the same (expletive)," Hunt said. "You just cant play like that. Were in the middle of a relegation battle."

A 24-man roster released Sunday has Canada back to using permanent European league players, plus two American Hockey League additions, for the Dec. 26-Jan. 1 tournament in Davos, Switzerand. Canada sent a stacked team to last years event thanks to the NHL lockout. They pounded host HC Davos 7-2 in the final to win the worlds oldest international pro hockey tournament for a 12th time. Spezza, Tavares, Patrice Bergeron, Matt Duchene, Sam Gagner, Tyler Seguin, Ryan Smyth, Devan Dubnyk and Jonathan Bernier are all back in the NHL this time. But they will still have seven players back from 2012, including defencemen Geoff Kinrade, Micki DuPont, Maxim Noreau, Derrick Walser and Travis Roche, plus forwards Brett McLean and Byron Ritchie. "We think well be a good skating team with a lot of offensive prowess," said Hockey Canada vice-president of hockey operations Brad Pascall. "Last year, we had a good team overall, but we lost the first game against a German club team. "It wasnt a cakewalk. But as it went on, we dominated because Canadians want to win every tournament theyre in and because we had players from the lockout." Canada is in a three-team group with HC Davos and the Vitkovice Steel of the Czech league and will play its first game Dec. 26 against the Steel. The other group has Swiss club Servette Geneva, which is boosted by goalie Robert Mayer from the AHL Hamilton Bulldogs, as well as CSKA Moscow and the Rochester Americans of the AHL. The Americans were invited to the event for a second time after finishing third in 1996. Former NHL player Doug Shedden, who coaches EV Zug of the Swiss league, is back as Canadas head coach for a second year. He helped select the team along with Pascaall and two NHL assistant general managers — Craig Heisinger of the Winnipeg Jets and Brad Treliving of the Phoenix Coyotes. Joe Carter Jersey. Canada will have a national team in the tournament for a 30th straight year. For fans watching on TV at home, it is a chance to see mostly European club teams in gaudy gear plastered with advertising battle on the international ice surface at the Vaillant Arena in scenic Davos in the Swiss Alps. Its also a chance to catch up with several former NHL players now skating in Europe. Among them are goalie Chris Mason, defencemen Walser, Jim Vandermeer and Joel Kwiatkowski and forwards Ritchie, Anthony Stewart and Glen Metropolit. "Its special for the players who are there with their families," said Pascall. "Theyre away in a different country and this is a chance to spend a week with other Canadians and celebrate Canada." Also on the squad are former Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Allen York, who has been bouncing around the AHL and ECHL this season, and forward Alexandre Bolduc of the AHL Chicago Wolves. Others on the team include rearguards Travis Ehrhardt and Brendan Bell and forwards Colby Genoway, Alexandre Giroux, Brett McLean, Ahren Spylo, Jason Williams, Ryan MacMurchy, Darren Haydar, Jacob Mikflikier and Eric Beaudoin. Mason plays in Italy, Ehrhardt in Norway and Haydar in Germany, but all the other Europrean-based players are from the Swiss league. Canada won the first time it entered the Spengler Cup in 1984 and had a stretch of four wins in a row from 1995 to 1998. The win last year ended a four-year drought, although they have been in the final in 10 of the last 12 years. The first Spengler Cup was played in 1923 and HC Davos, whose lineup includes Swiss national team veterans Andres Ambuhl and Reto Von Arx, has won 15 times. ' ' '
