MONTREAL -- Eugenie Bouchard did everything she could to help her country. Bouchard won both her singles matches, including the clincher on Sunday, to power Canada to a 3-1 victory over Serbia in its Fed Cup World Group II tie over the weekend. In beating Serbias Vesna Dolonc 6-0, 6-3, the Montreal native gave Canada a 3-0 lead in the best-of-five tie in front of her hometown fans at the Claude-Robillard Sports Complex. "I think I played two solid matches, and I helped Canada," said Bouchard, 19. "Im very proud of that. The whole team was very excited all week." Bouchard agreed to represent her country in the Fed Cup despite her busy international schedule. On Monday, she hops on a plane to Doha, Qatar, where she faces American Bethanie Mattek-Sands in the Qatar Open the following day. But Bouchard, whos represented Canada since 2011, thinks thats a small price to pay for wearing the Maple Leaf on her cheek, as she did over the weekend. "I fully embrace it. It comes with the job," she said. "This is where I want to be. I love playing for my country. I try to enjoy every moment when I play for Canada." On Saturday, Bouchard beat the No. 149-ranked Jovana Jaksic 6-1, 6-0 in a dominant performance to give Canada a 2-0 advantage, after her teammate Aleksandra Wozniak of Blainville, Que., defeated Dolonc 7-5, 2-6, 6-4. Canada will now advance to the World Group playoffs, giving the team a chance to advance from the World Group II to a higher division that includes the worlds eight best teams. A draw on Tuesday will determine Canadas next opponent, and whether that tie will be held at home or on the road, when the Fed Cup resumes on April 19. Canadian team captain Sylvain Bruneau had nothing but praise for the rising-star Bouchard. "Shes very patriotic, and people need to recognize that," said Bruneau. "It wont be easy for her (in Doha), but she did it to represent her country. Shes always been there for us." Joining Bouchard (ranked No. 19 in the world) and 274th-ranked Wozniak on the Canadian team were Torontos Sharon Fichman (No. 112) and Ottawas Gabriela Dabrowski (No. 224). Fichman and Dabrowski lost to Serbias Jaksic and Nina Stojanovic 6-2, 3-6, (10-8) in doubles play on Sunday afternoon. Because Canada had already defeated Serbia in the tie, the match was simply a formality. After each team took a set, and with the 10-point tiebreak tied 8-8, Fichman missed her final two shots to hand Serbia the doubles triumph. But the story of the day was Bouchards singles match. Leading 5-3 in her second set, Bouchard sent the No. 117-ranked Dolonc the wrong way to secure the advantage. She then cemented the victory emphatically with an ace. "I was happy I could stay with her and fight," said Bouchard. "When it counted, I did what I needed to do." She needed less than 20 minutes to take the first set, surrendering just seven points in the process. But Dolonc put up a fight in the second set, breaking Bouchard in the first game. She then held serve to force a 2-2 tie. "It was a closer battle (in the second). She came up with some good points, and I had a few unforced errors," said Bouchard, who settled down after a number of uncharacteristic mistakes. "I tried to win one point at a time and stay in the moment. And that helped me." Bouchard went on to win four of the next five games to seal the victory. "The tempo was very high," said Dolonc of the 59-minute match. "There was constant pressure on me. I was too late all the time. It was really quick. It was tough for me to find my game." Bouchards victory meant that Wozniak could skip her singles match. "They deserved this win," said Serbian captain Dejan Vranes of Canadas overall victory. "Simply, they were the best. I wish them luck. They deserve to be in the World Group next year." Vranes team took to the court minus such established stars as Jelena Jankovic (ranked eighth in the world), Ana Ivanovic (No. 12), and Bojana Jovanovski (No. 41). While Ivanovic and Jovanovski are dealing with minor injuries, Jankovic recently chose to retire from international play. Bruneau doesnt think the absence of those great Serbian players diminishes what Canada did over the weekend. "These players played with all their heart on the court," said Bruneau. "They played for Canada, they played for themselves, and they played for the team. And they gave it their all." NCAA Basketball Jerseys .

But the Sharks had more pressing concerns for teammate Dan Boyle. Thornton had a goal and three assists and Patrick Marleau had a goal and two assists and the Sharks downed the St. Louis Blues 6-2 Tuesday night. Boyle was lost for the game with a head injury suffered early in the first period. Boyle was taken off on a stretcher early in the first period following a check from behind by the Blues Maxim Lapierre, who was ejected from the game for checking from behind. A Sharks spokesperson said Boyle was alert and responsive on the way to the hospital. Boyle will be kept overnight for observation. Thornton was one of the first players on the ice. "He wasnt (saying anything) and thats what was so scary," Thornton said. "Ive never seen a guy be like that before. It just takes your breath away. He wasnt responding or anything. It was very, very scary." Several Sharks players were critical of Lapierre afterward. "Its just disgusting to see that type of play in hockey, when a player that probably shouldnt even be in this league is taking out one of the best players in the world," said Sharks centre Logan Couture, who had a goal and an assist. "(Lapierre) has got a history." Added Joe Pavelski, who scored his first goal of the season: "Idiots are idiots out there. Dan is a world-class defenceman ... (Lapierre saw) straight numbers (in front of him). Theres guys in the league that will target that ... It doesnt matter, theyll just go. It (stinks). Guys responded appropriately." Sharks coach Todd McLellan gave the good news of Boyles status. "Well, he left and he went to the hospital and from what I understand, hes doing OK," McLellan said. "A very scary moment, needless. It doesnt have to happen in our game. It doesnt have to happen." Blues captain David Backes also expressed his concern afterward. "No one in their right mind would ever want that to happen to another guy," Backes said. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Dan Boyle and his family. Thats a scary thing, its something you hope never happens. Hopefully he has a speedy recovery and hes back on the ice soon. "Nobody ever wants that to happen. Its a tough thing to see that and to put it behind you and keep playing. Thats disturbing." Tommy Wingels and Scott Hannan also scored, while Antti Niemi stopped 25 shots for San Jose (6-0-0). The Blues, who dropped to 4-1-0 on the season, had their 10-game regular-season home winning streak snapped as the Sharks won in dominating fashion. Jaroslav Halak also suffered his first defeat of the season, stopping 22 shots and was replaced by Brian Elliott to start the third period. It was Elliotts first action of the season. Vladimir Tarasenko broke Niemis shutout with his fourth goal in as many games for the Blues. Roman Polak also scored for the Blues. "Its tough beccause its Dan Boyle and theres so much respect in this office because of history with Dan," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said.dddddddddddd "I havent really looked at it that closely on the video to be honest with you, so I dont want to comment on it until I looked at it a few times," Hitchcock added. "I dont think that had anything to do with the outcome today. One team played hard and smart." After the Boyle injury, it was a penalty-filled first period, with 79 minutes in penalties handed out. Lapierre was ejected for a five-minute checking from behind penalty as well as fighting, as was teammate Ryan Reaves. The Sharks also lost forward and Matt Pelech with a fighting major and game misconduct. Andrew Desjardins was originally awarded a fighting major and 10-minute game misconduct, but was changed to a 10-minute misconduct and he was able to return for the second period. Later in the period, San Joses Brent Burns checked the Blues Brenden Morrow from behind into the boards, but only got a two-minute boarding penalty to the resounding boos from Blues fans. The Sharks took a 2-0 lead on power-play scores from Couture and Pavelski just 48 seconds apart. Both goals came from the left circle, with Couture scoring at 9:37. The Blues trailed on home ice for the first time since April 16, 2013, a stretch of 568:47. Pavelski one-timed his first of the season on the short side past Halak just after a 27-second two-man advantage for the Sharks expired. The Sharks added to their lead in the second period, getting goals from Wingels and Hannan to grab a 4-0 lead. Wingels scored on a wraparound off the skate of Barret Jackman 8:34 into the period for a 3-0 lead, and Hannan with his first of the season off a slap shot with 2:47 left in the period for a 4-0 lead. Thornton made it 5-0 on a shot from the slot, beating Elliott 5:06 into the third period off a pass from rookie Tomas Hertl. Tarasenko hammered home a rebound off a shot from Jaden Schwartz at 7:23 of the third period to make it a 5-1 Sharks lead. Polaks shot from the low slot with 7:32 remaining cut the Sharks lead to 5-2. Marleau added his fifth of the season at 17:06, the Sharks third power-play goal of the game and put a stamp on a game they dedicated to their teammate. "Your heart kind of drops," Thornton said. "Its tough seeing a teammate go down like that. We had to give a good effort for Dan tonight. Ive never seen that before, youre just kind of sitting on the bench hoping Dan is OK. It takes a while to kind of get back focused again." NOTES: Hertl leads the NHL in rookie scoring with nine points. ... San Joses win was only its second in the past eight meetings with the Blues. ... The Blues previous home regulation home loss was April 14, 2013, to Chicago. ... The Sharks lead the NHL in goals (30) and goal differential (plus-21). ... Polaks goal was his first since April 11, 2013, second in two seasons and 10th of his career. ' ' '
