As opposed to their last two games Authentic Isaiah Wynn Jersey , the New England Patriots’ contest against the Buffalo Bills was not decided on its final play. The 25-6 final score can be misleading as the game was a closer one than the initial look might make it seem, however, but it still one that produced plenty of memorable performances. So without the benefit of a film review, let’s take a look at some of them – for better or for worse:Winner: DE Trey FlowersWhile he did not register a sack, Trey Flowers was still arguably the most disruptive player on the Patriots defense. The 25-year old set a hard edge no matter on which side of the formation he lined up, and put constant pressure on quarterback Derek Anderson – finishing with two hits and a near-interception on a pass deflection. Furthermore, two of Flowers’ tackles came for a loss of yardage. An all-around good performance.Winner: DT Lawrence Guy & DT Malcom BrownThe Patriots tried to force Buffalo – without starting quarterback Josh Allen – into throwing the football, a plan that would not have worked if not for the run stoppers up front doing their job. Lawrence Guy and Malcom Brown were therefore integral to New England’s defensive success, even though the duo finished with just one combined tackle. Nevertheless, their presence at the heart of the Patriots line allowed the team to hold Buffalo’s running backs to just 47 yards on 18 carries.Loser: RB Cordarrelle PattersonWith Sony Michel out, New England turned to depth wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson as the de-facto early down running back. While he did have a big 22-yard run in the fourth quarter to set up the game’s first touchdown, the results were generally underwhelming. Patterson failed to get to the second level or generate a noticeable push – partly because of the offense line and the Buffalo defense, but partly because of his inability to hit holes with power.Winner: LB Kyle Van NoyWith Dont’a Hightower out because of a knee injury, Kyle Van Noy was active as the team’s top linebacker and finished the game with a team-leading eight tackles – one of which for loss –, as well as a pair of sacks and a forced fumble. The third-year Patriot, who served as the on-field signal caller during Hightower’s absence, had a huge impact on the contest and led New England’s defense to an encouraging performance.Loser: Red zone offenseNew England reached Buffalo’s red zone three times but came away with just 13 of a possible 21 points, settling for a touchdown and two field goals. Had the Patriots been able to properly execute in the red area, the game might not have been as close as it was until the fourth period. However Limited Danny Etling Jersey , the team allowed the Bills – who played tremendous red area defense – to hang around longer than was necessary.Winner: WR Julian EdelmanOn a day on which the Patriots offense failed to find a rhythm, Julian Edelman again proved his value to the unit as one of Tom Brady’s safety blankets. The veteran and number one wide receiver finished the day with nine catches for a team-high 104 yards – including a critical third down conversion on the team’s first touchdown drive of the day. Furthermore, Edelman gained 13 yards on two carries.Winner: SS Patrick ChungBuffalo’s passing offense is none to be afraid of, but it was still encouraging to see the Patriots limit the impact of the team’s best receiving options. One of them is tight end Charles Clay, who most of the time was matched up against Patrick Chung. Clay finished the day with just three catches for 36 yards, while Chung registered five tackles, a pass breakup, and a fumble recovery.Loser: RB Kenjon BarnerAs noted above, the Patriots were without starting running back Sony Michel. However, they did not turn to one of their two active backs to replace him: Kenjon Barner was on the field for just seven offensive snaps and finished the day with only four yards on two carries as the aforementioned Patterson took over as the de-facto lead back. Barner, meanwhile, appears to be little more than the team’s last emergency option at the position.Loser: P Ryan AllenNew England’s special teams units did again not have a particularly strong day, and Ryan Allen’s performance is a perfect reflection for that. The veteran, who beat out current Bills punter Corey Bojorquez during the Patriots’ training camp, had a hard time flipping the field position in his team’s favor. While the wind may have had an impact on this, Allen’s 37.0 is still unimpressive no matter the factors at play.Winner: RB James WhiteJames White once again served as New England’s offensive motor. While the Patriots offense generally had a hard time when it came to moving the football against a stout Buffalo defense, the running back did his best to keep the unit moving one yard at a time. When all was said and done, White had amassed 79 of them on a team-high 10 catches and 15 more and the offense’s lone touchdown of the night non eight carries.Winner: FS Devin McCourtyOne of the Patriots’ defensive standouts was Devin McCourty, who had one of the biggest plays of the night: while the veteran had a relatively quiet day through the first three quarters Sony Michel Jersey Salute to Service , he blew the contest open in the fourth period with an interception return touchdown. McCourty read the quarterback perfectly, undercut the route, and took the pick 84-yards to the end zone to essentially ice the game for New England. The Indianapolis Colts made a firm commitment to Matt Eberflus in January.They stuck to it after the man who initially hired Eberflus to be Indy's defensive coordinator, Josh McDaniels, reneged on a deal to become the next coach and they lived up to their promise after eventually hiring Frank Reich in February.It's worked out well for the Colts."He's a consistent guy, he's got a consistent message every day and he believes in the system," middle linebacker Anthony Walker said Tuesday. "That's what you want as a player, a guy who believes in the system."The system looks awfully familiar to longtime Colts' fans.Eberflus reinstalled the Tampa 2 defense, the zone concept popularized by Hall of Fame coach Tony Dungy. General manager Chris Ballard saw it work in Chicago under Lovie Smith, one of Dungy's former pupils, and Reich worked with it on Dungy's staff when he first started coaching in 2006. Indy capped that season by winning the Super Bowl.The low-key personalities and focused approaches also proved a perfect match.But the real investment came in free agency and the draft.While Colts fans waited impatiently for Ballard to make a splashy move, he mostly avoided the high-priced free agents and instead went with less-familiar names who could excel in Eberflus' system.The results have been remarkable.Linebacker Darius Leonard, a second-round pick, has a league-high 104 tackles and Walker has 67 tackles, nearly four times as many as he had in 2017.Defensive end Kemoko Turay has shown flashes of being a disruptive pass rusher and Tyquan Lewis showed promise in his first two games after missing the first eight with an injured toe. Both were second-round draft picks in April."We're getting to the ball, causing turnovers," Leonard said. "We don't do a lot, there's not a lot of thinking so it's very easy for me to go out and play."Not just for the young guys, either.Jabaal Sheard moved from outside linebacker to defensive end and already has matched his sacks total (5陆) from last season. Veteran defensive linemen Margus Hunt has gone from rotation player to starter and has had a career-best season.Safeties Clayton Geathers and Malik Hooker have been rounding into form after missing most of last season and part of this season with injuries Duke Dawson Jersey , and outsiders have noticed a difference."They hustle. They have great team effort. They have very good team speed. They stunt the front and they are all very good hitters," Oakland Raiders coach Jon Gruden said recently. "They seem to really like each other. They seem to have a really good, I think, overall down to down competitive nature about them."The individual numbers only tell part of the story.After finishing 30th in the league in yards allowed per game in 2016 and 2017 and 26th or worse in four of Chuck Pagano's six seasons as head coach, Indy has jumped to No. 20 this season. Through 10 games, they have 26 sacks and are on pace for their highest total since 2013.The Colts have allowed 17.5 points to their past four opponents and only four teams have more takeaways than Indy (19).Not surprisingly, the Colts (5-5) have won all four, moving back into the playoff picture largely because of a defensive resurgence few expected in Eberflus' first season."I think you have to go through this process. Sometimes you take a couple steps forward and one step back or three or four steps forward and one or two back," Eberflus said. "But it's really about the guys buying into it."It could be just the start.The young Colts are still getting acclimated to Eberflus and his scheme, are still learning how to play consistently well and still must demonstrate they can withstand the late-season rigors to make a playoff run.But for the first time in a long time, the Colts' defense no longer looks like the weak link. Instead, Eberflus has demonstrated just how promising the future could be."I think guys are buying into the style slowly but it's not consistent yet," Eberflus said. "Today in the film room we pointed out all the loafs and all the missed assignments, so we can definitely get better week to week and now it's about being consistent week to week."Notes: With the likelihood of starting center Ryan Kelly out with an injured left knee, the Colts signed center Josh Andrews off the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad. ... Indy also put cornerback D.J. Killings on injured reserve and waived cornerback Arthur Maulet.

NASHVILLE Limited Jeremy Hill Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — Tom Brady added another big chunk of NFL history to his resume.The Tennessee Titans made sure the Patriots quarterback didn’t finish his 300th game by hitting him over and over again.The Titans sacked Brady three times and hit him six more times as they beat New England 34-10 Sunday, snapping a seven-game skid against the Patriots in Mike Vrabel’s first game as head coach against the team he helped win three Super Bowls.It was the most sacks allowed in a game this season by the Patriots (7-3), and coach Bill Belichick pulled Brady for Brian Hoyer midway through the fourth quarter.“You got to make Tom blink, and if you make him blink and have to go to a second read you got a chance,” Vrabel said of his former teammate. “But if you let him rip it to the first guy he looks at, it’s going to be a long day.”Asked if he thought Brady was effective, Belichick said to ask Brady.“It was just a bad day for all of us,” Brady said.Only Brett Favre (326) has played in more games, both regular season and postseason, as a quarterback than Brady. The three-time NFL MVP also needed only three touchdown passes to tie Peyton Manning (579) for the NFL record for most TD passes all time for both the regular season and postseason.Brady left having thrown for 254 yards and no TD passes. The Titans outgained the Patriots 385-284, holding New England to just 40 yards rushing. Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who had 1½ sacks, said that allowed them to get after Brady.“Coach Vrabel said make them pay for everything,” Woodyard said. “Tackle him Jordan Matthews Jersey , hit him and make him feel it.”Marcus Mariota capped each of the first two drives with TD passes, and Derrick Henry ran for a pair of TDs. Ryan Succop also added two field goals as the Titans (5-4) scored a season high in points after jumping out to a 17-3 lead in the first quarter. They now have beaten both of last season’s Super Bowl teams in Nashville.The loss snaps a six-game winning streak going into New England’s bye. The Patriots, who routed the Titans 35-14 in January, also lost to Tennessee for the first time since Dec. 16, 2002.Darius Jennings opened the game with a 58-yard kickoff return, and Mariota capped the drive with a 4-yard TD pass to Jonnu Smith. The Titans never trailed again.The Titans came in with the NFL’s stingiest scoring defense and also leading the league in fewest touchdowns allowed in the red zone. They held the Patriots to a pair of 52-yard field-goal attempts by Stephen Gostkowski, who missed his second wide left. James Develin scored on a 1-yard TD run early in the second, which pulled New England within 17-10.Brady looked ready to pull off another amazing comeback, driving the Pats to the Titans 37. The Titans stopped Brady a yard shy of the first down after catching a pass from Julian Edelman. A false start followed, then Logan Ryan, a former New England cornerback, broke up a Brady pass to Edelman to turn the ball over.On the very next play, Vrabel called his own trick play with Jennings throwing to a wide-open Mariota for a 21-yard gain.Hoyer replaced Brady on the next drive.EX-PATS CONNECTIONSTennessee fired coach Mike Mularkey after the January playoff loss and hired Vrabel to try to recreate the Patriots’ winning ways with the Titans. Vrabel hired Dean Pees, a former Patriots linebackers coach and defensive coordinator Jonathan Jones Jersey Salute to Service , as his defensive coordinator. General manager Jon Robinson, who started in New England, signed cornerback Malcolm Butler and running back Dion Lewis in free agency.“That’s what happens when you go cheap,” Lewis said. “You get your (expletive) kicked.”RARE BRADY CATCHBrady’s catch was just the third of his career and first since Dec. 6, 2015, when he caught a 36-yarder from Danny Amendola against Philadelphia. At 41, Brady became the oldest player with a catch since Jerry Rice had 30 at the age of 42. Brady slipped at the end and said he didn’t know what happened.“It was ‘fish out of water,'” Brady said.Mariota also has three receptions, including catching his own pass in the playoffs last January. Vrabel said Mariota got up faster than Brady did. Mariota said he had one thought on his reception: “Just catch it.”INJURIESPatriots left tackle Trent Brown missed the final drive of the first half and was announced as questionable to return because of illness. LaAdrian Waddle replaced him for that series, but Brown returned for the first start of the third quarter. Brown left later in the third quarter with an injured back. Edelman hurt an ankle and didn’t return. Tight end Dwayne Allen also hurt a knee in the third quarter.Titans running back David Fluellen picked up 16 yards on back-to-back runs, then went down untouched on the next play with a knee injury.UP NEXTPatriots: Bye, then visit Jets on Nov. 25.Titans: Visit Indianapolis.Week 2 Patriots vs Jaguars: Bill Belichick says that “nothing is more important” against Jacksonville than ball security The New England Patriots will face one of the NFL’s premier defenses today and for head coach Bill Belichick this means one thing: stressing ball security. The Patriots need to do a better job than last week, when they turned the football over a combined three times, if they plan on leaving Jacksonville win a win under their collective belt – and Belichick knows it: “There’s nothing more important for us in this game than taking care of the ball Ja'Whaun Bentley Jersey ,” he said in this week’s edition of the Belestrator.The breakdown stars with Belichick and host Scott Zolak taking a look at the Jacksonville Jaguars’ high-powered defense. Using adjectives like “fast” and “athletic”, Belichick points out that the unit does a good job of rushing the quarterback and is able to close space quickly versus the pass.An interception during last year’s playoffs is shown as an example: cornerback Jalen Ramsey deflects a pass intended for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and safety Barry Church is able to run it back for a touchdown. After that play, Belichick and Zolak take a look at middle linebacker Myles Jack and how his athleticism makes him a threat to quickly turn takeaways into points.The conversation then changed to the offensive side of the football, where Keelan Cole established himself as a potent option at the wide receiver position. Belichick points out that quarterback Blake Bortles does a good job of using his weapons – Cole in the example used in the breakdown – and as a very good deep ball thrower can put pressure on the deep parts of a defense.Bortles, who has struggled with inconsistency throughout his four-year career, is also dangerous as a runner. Last week against the New York Giants, he even registered Jacksonville’s longest play of the day, a 41-yard run. “We can’t let him out [of the pocket],” Belichick said about the former first-round draft pick. The Patriots’ head coach noted that the Jaguars’ big play ability is generally something his team needs to be prepared for.“Between their running game, their defense and their big plays on offense, they can score in a hurry,” Belichick said.

Later today Mike Gillislee Jersey Salute to Service , the New England Patriots play their fourth and final game of the season against an AFC South opponent. In order for the team to improve its record against the division to 3-1, both sides of the football need to play a disciplined game against a Tennessee Titans team that fields one of the best defenses in the NFL and an offense that may not sit atop the statistical leaderboards but has still helped win four games so far this season.Let’s find out what the Patriots have to do to beat them.Be disciplined in the front sevenTennessee has one of the NFL’s most balanced offensive attacks: led by running backs Dion Lewis and Derrick Henry as well and quarterback Marcus Mariota, the team has not shied away from turning to its ground game to get the offense going — and the Patriots need to be ready for it as well today. Being disciplined up front in terms of technique and gap integrity therefore has to be a key for New England: the team can neither allow Lewis and company to get to the perimeter nor to open up lanes for Mariota to exploit as a ball carrier. If that happens and the Titans have to turn primarily to their inconsistent passing game to generate yards, the Patriots’ chances of winning should look good. Don’t be afraid to go for the home runEven though safety Kevin Byard is one of the better players in the NFL at his position, New England should not be afraid to challenge Tennessee deep — especially on the side of the field where Malcolm Butler is lining up. While Butler is not as bad a player this year as his statistics suggest, the Patriots knows his weaknesses as well as anybody and should use this knowledge to their advantage. Trying to get a physically imposing player like Josh Gordon in one-on-one situations against Butler should be a goal for the team, and one that could field results.Win in the red zoneTennessee’s offense is one of the least productive in the NFL when it comes to scoring points, but it has still found some success in the red zone this season. Meanwhile James Develin Jersey , the team’s defense is arguably the best in the league at keeping teams from scoring touchdowns when backed up. Safe to say that the red area will therefore be a deciding factor of today’s game: if the Patriots offense can overcome its inconsistencies in this part of the field and the defense can continue following its bend-don’t-break principles, the team will have a successful day. Josh Allen had mixed emotions after an inconsistent performance in his first meeting with boyhood idol Tom Brady.“I wanted to beat him, for sure,” the Bills rookie quarterback said following Buffalo’s 24-12 loss at New England on Sunday. “He’s one of the greatest to ever do it and as a young kid growing up, I never thought I’d get the opportunity to be on the same field as him.“So it’s a cool feeling. But at the same time, I was focused on winning a football game.”Then again, it wasn’t so much Brady who beat the Bills. It was the Bill Belichick-coached Patriots defense that stifled Allen and Buffalo’s offense.Having shown progress in Allen’s previous four starts since he returned from missing four games with a sprained throwing elbow, the Bills offense took a step back against New England.The Bills (5-10) totaled 289 yards of offense and managed 14 first downs after gaining more than 300 yards and producing more than 20 first downs in five of their last six games.Allen completed 20 of 41 passes for 217 yards Authentic LaAdrian Waddle Jersey , one touchdown and two interceptions. It was the fifth time in 10 starts Allen has committed two or more turnovers.The Patriots disguised their coverages in the first half and limited Allen to 48 yards passing. It was the fifth time this season he has had 60 or fewer yards at halftime.“They did that for an obvious reason, being young,” Allen said. “It took a little bit to adjust to. At the same time, I’ve got to be better with my eyes, got to be better with where I put the football.”Belichick improved to 10-0 at home when facing a rookie quarterback, and 17-5 overall.Allen boosted his passing totals with 72 yards and Buffalo’s only touchdown in the final minutes when the game had already been decided. The garbage-time production led Allen to topping 200 yards for the fifth consecutive game, the longest streak by a Bills quarterback since Tyrod Taylor’s five-game stretch from Nov. 30-Dec. 20, 2015.The Bills did little to help their rookie quarterback on offense. Allen’s receivers dropped several passes Limited Shaq Mason Jersey , tight end Jason Croom fumbled in the red zone after 24-yard gain, and the running game was ineffective.“When given the opportunity, you’ve got to make plays,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “Look, sometimes Josh could have made a better throw. But there were other times where the ball was catchable and you’ve got to make plays on the ball.”Buffalo finished with 72 yards rushing, the first time in five games it failed to rush for 100 or more. LeSean McCoy returned after missing one game with a hamstring injury but had only 9 yards on six carries. Undrafted rookie Keith Ford led the Bills with 33 yards on seven carries.Allen scrambled five times for 30 yards. He leads the Bills in rushing this season with 536 yards, but has been held to 46 over the past two weeks after totaling 335 in his previous three games.Buffalo’s defense had one glaring weakness in allowing a season-high 273 rushing yards against the Patriots. But the Bills defense gave Allen opportunities with three takeaways and limited Brady to 126 passing yards — his lowest since he threw for 123 yards in a 2003 loss to the Bills.“Our defense played spectacular,” Allen said. “They forced three turnovers and we got (three) points off that Drew Bledsoe Jersey Salute to Service , and that starts with me.”Brady greeted Allen on the field after the game and gave the rookie some encouragement.“Nothing too crazy, but he’s one of the good ones off the field, too,” Allen said. “I’m sure he doesn’t want to share too many of his tricks or whatever is up his sleeve. Got to hand it to him. Such a long career and he’s still playing extremely well.”

Philadelphia Eagles. Two teams Color Rush Curtis Riley Jersey , and fan bases, that largely don’t like each other. With a game between the NFC East rivals looming Thursday, let’s venture into enemy territory and learn some things about the Eagles. Brandon Lee Gowton of Bleeding Green Nation answers our 5 questions.Ed: What is your assessment of the Eagles thus far? I thought they would win this division in a cakewalk, and they still might, but I’m surprised to see them at 2-3.Brandon: It’s safe to say the reigning Super Bowl champs have been a disappointment through the first five games of the season. This has been a team that just can’t stop shooting themselves in the foot. Take their most recent loss to the Vikings for example. After finally starting to string a promising drive together, Lane Johnson allows Carson Wentz to get strip-sacked and Linval Joseph recovers for a touchdown. Then they get another drive going and actually move into the red zone but Jay Ajayi fumbles at the 5-yard line. The Eagles recover a fumble at the Vikings’ 30-yard line with a chance to take the lead and then proceed to knock themselves out of scoring range by taking an illegal formation penalty followed by a grounding call. Mistakes are always going to happen during the game but it feels like the Eagles continue to make theirs at the worst times. Part of the reason the Eagles haven’t been able to get out of their own way is they have a number of position groups that are underperforming. The offensive line is arguably the biggest disappointment in this regard. After having one of the best lines in the league last season, Philly’s front is suddenly struggling to protect Carson Wentz. The third-year quarterback has been sacked 12 times and hit 27 times during his first three games back from ACL injury. I certainly don’t need to lecture Giants fans on the importance of offensive line play.Jim Schwartz’s defense isn’t off the hook, either. The Eagles’ secondary has been far too leaky. Philadelphia ranks 26th in big-play rate allowed. In the Eagles’ past two games, opposing quarterbacks have combined for 60/80 (75% completion), 645 yards (8.1 average), 4 TD Youth Odell Beckham Jr Jersey , 1 INT, and a 98.8 passer rating. Put simply, the Eagles just aren’t playing like a good team right now.Ed: How much are they hurt by the loss of Jay Ajayi, and if the Eagles are indeed interested in a LeSean McCoy reunion is that something you would be in favor of?Brandon: Losing Jay Ajayi is significant because he’s the Eagles’ most talented running back, when healthy. The problem is he hasn’t been healthy this year. Prior to tearing his ACL, he suffered a fractured bone in his back during Week 2. I don’t know how he managed to play through both that AND a torn ACL against the Vikings, but that just goes to show you he’s one tough dude.Ajayi is the Eagles’ leading rusher this season with 184 carries and three touchdowns on 45 attempts. He hasn’t been Philly’s most efficient ball-carrier, though. Surprisingly, fourth-string running back Wendell Smallwood leads the team in rush average at 6.0. In addition to his 150 yards on 25 carries, he’s logged 10 receptions for 96 yards and one score. He’s far from an elite back but he deserves some credit for stepping up.With Smallwood playing well and Corey Clement returning, I’m not ready to flat out panic about the Eagles’ running back situation. Those guys can be at least solid behind an Eagles offensive line that’s struggled in pass protection but has looked good while run blocking. But there’s certainly a lot of room to improve and getting a top weapon like Le’Veon Bell or LeSean McCoy would be really nice right now. The Eagles’ offense rank 28th in big-play rate. They need more play-makers.From a football standpoint Color Rush Patrick Omameh Jersey , I think McCoy could make sense for the Eagles depending on the cost. From a personal standpoint, I don’t love the idea of rooting on McCoy given all the off-field stuff that’s going on with him.Ed: Where do you think the Eagles have a clear advantage in this game?Brandon: Well, in theory the Eagles’ defensive line should be able to get to Eli Manning. The Giants’ offensive line ranks 24th overall by Pro Football Focus. Football Outsiders, meanwhile, has New York ranked 31st in run blocking and 26th in adjusted sack rate. It seems like the Giants should struggle against an Eagles pass rush that’s generating the highest percent of plays where the opposing quarterback has been under pressure (57%), per PFF. The Eagles could very well make life difficult on Eli Manning and force him into some bad throws and/or sacks.Ed: Where do you think the Giants could have an advantage?Brandon: On the other hand, the Eagles’ pass rush didn’t really faze the Giants last year. Manning had two of his best games of the season against Philly. The Giants were able to get the ball out quick and it felt like the Eagles couldn’t stop the same slant route that the Giants were running over and over. The Giants should even be more difficult to defend now that Odell Beckham Jr. is back. You can be Pat Shurmur will try to get OBJ matched up against Eagles starting cornerback Jalen Mills, who has struggled this season. During last year’s Week 3 Eagles-Giants game, Mills was targeted a whopping 21 TIMES. New York saw a weakness and they tried to exploit it. It wouldn’t surprise me to see them go after Mills again this year.Ed: If you could have one player off the Giants roster for the Eagles NOT named Saquon Barkley or Odell Beckham, who would you take?Brandon: I’ll take Landon Collins. The Eagles are dangerously thin at safety right now with Rodney McLeod out for the season and veteran backup Corey Graham now dealing with a hamstring issue. Philadelphia’s three healthy safeties include: Malcolm Jenkins, Avonte Maddox Color Rush Nate Solder Jersey , and Deiondre’ Hall. Jenkins is obviously a great player. Maddox isn’t even a real safety. The rookie cornerback never played on the back end of the defense until two weeks ago. The Eagles acquired Hall during final cuts and he hasn’t seen any defensive playing time despite the fact Philly is depleted at safety. Collins would fill the Eagles’ biggest need. I also considered Damon Harrison because he’s dominant and the Eagles are getting nothing out of their defensive tackles not named Fletcher Cox. Sterling Shepard would also help an Eagles wide receiving corps that’s not giving the team a ton right now. Happy Thursday, New York Giants fans.

The New York Giants lost a heartbreaker to the Carolina Panthers Authentic Ray-Ray Armstrong Jersey , 33-31, Sunday as the Panthers squeaked past the woebegone Giants with a last-second 63-yard field goal. The Giants broke the 30-point barrier (which, honestly, shouldn’t even BE a barrier for a team with the offensvie firepower the Giants boast) for the first time since 2015, but it wasn’t enough to overcome their own play. What can did we learn from the Giants’ tough loss in Carolina?The Giants’ special teams remain a problemAs Dan Pizzuta and I noted this week after the loss to the New Orleans Saints on the Big Blue reView podcast, it’s a sad state of affairs when the best thing you have to talk about on special teams is the improvement of your kicker.And kudos to Aldrick Rosas, because he HAS improved this season. Yes, he did kick one out of bounds on a slick field, but he nailed a career-long 53-yard field goal, has been perfect on the season, and solved any kick coverage problems by simply depositing the ball behind the opposing endzone. That’s about where the kudos will end. The Giants’ punt coverage remains an adventure, and they STILL can’t seem to find a reliable punt returner, even with Odell Beckham Jr.’s presence back there. The Giant added a bevy or special teams specialists in the offseason, and hired a new Special Teams Coordinator — though Tom Quinn remains as an assistant as Thomas McGauhey fights his own battle with cancer. We don’t talk much about special teams, but it is a vital part of the game. Even a great offense and defense can’t overcome the hidden yardage lost by bad special teams. It’s a problem the Giants need to fix, but they might not be able to do so this year.The Giants’ are undisciplinedSloppy tackling. Bad penalties.Poor routes.Mental mistakes and miscommunications on offense and defense.These things have been problems throughout the 2018 for the Giants, but they hadn’t come together quite like they did against the Carolina Panthers. Though the team came in to the game as the least-penalized team in the NFL, the Giants are still undisciplined.The NFL has an officiating problemThis isn’t just limited to today’s game against the Giants. The officiating has been horrific league-wide all season long. The most egregious today was the unnecessary roughness penalty against Landon Collins as three Giants collided while coming for wide receiver Devin Funchess. The problem? Collins was going for the interception and Funchess fell into the back of Collins’ helmet. The play would have ended the Panthers’ drive, but instead the penalty kept the drive alive, which ended in points. Later in the game there was a somewhat questionable call on Kerry Wynn to cancel out a holding call on the Panthers which would have had them starting with a 1st and 20 on their final drive. These calls on the heels of a pair of terrible calls on Clay Matthews in the second and third weeks of the season, and a bevy of others around the NFL.Considering the Panthers only won by two points on a career-long 63-yard field goal as timethe difference in the game. Blame could also be levied on Odell Beckham’s mistake on special teams or the defense’s bad tackling in the first half. This has become a big problem across the league. One the league will either need to address or heir product will continue to suffer.The Giants playmakers can make playsFor the first time this season, the Giants’ playmakers all showed up and made plays. In the same game.Beckham’s blunder on special teams might have been the difference in the game, but he made up for it by throwing a 57-yard touchdown to Saquon Barkley and making a terrific catch for a 33-yard touchdown touchdown of his own. Sterling Shepard was clutch with four catches for 75 yards to help keep Giants’ drives alive.Saquon Barkley finished the game with 129 total yards and a pair of touchdowns.The Giants’ lost in a fashion that could have been called “fluky” if they hadn’t put themselves in that position with three quarters of bad www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com , sloppy play. But, their playmakers did enough that they could have won, and showed the league what There is no running gameDave Gettleman introduced us all to the phrase “Hog Mollies” this past offseason as he vowed to “fix” it and return the Giants’ to a hard-nosed run-first offense. In doing so he threw money at Nate Solder and Patrick Omameh, drafted Will Hernandez and Saquon Barkley, let Justin Pugh, Weston Richburg, and D.J. Fluker walk in free agency and traded Brett Jones for a 7th round pick. In 2017 the Giants averaged 24.5 rushing attempts per game, for 3.9 yards per carry, and 2 sacks per game.In 2018 they are averaging 19.6 carries per game, 3.8 yards per carry, and 3.2 sacks per game.The offensive line is giving Eli Manning time to throw the ball, as he has had roughly league-average time to throw thus far this season, but the pass protection is unpredictable, and a jailbreak could occur on any play. And so far, the vast majority of the team’s 75 rushing yards per game have come from Barkley either making defenders miss with his agility, or running through arm tackles with his power. All while Barkley has been facing one of the lowest percentage of runs against eight-man boxes in the league.It could be argued that the Giants haven’t called enough running plays, but from Shurmur’s perspective, why bother? With some exceptions, Gettleman’s Hog Mollies have been playing like playing like piglets.The Giants actually showed some heartThe Giants could have folded up their tent and started back up for New York at the half. They played some pathetic football in the first two quarters. With the exception of Beckham and Barkley, they were uninspired on offense and the defense couldn’t tackle its way out of a wet paper bag. But they came out to play, really play, in the second half. Ultimately, it didn’t matter and they lost anyway. But this was the first loss in a long time that could actually be called a “heartbreaker”.Because the Giants FINALLY showed some damn heart. Beckham was getting ripped for his special teams blunder and having a touchdown ripped out of his hands — all after publicly criticizing his teammates for not matching his passion and energy.But in the second half New York Giants T-Shirt , and especially the fourth quarter, the team finally seemed to find its way to feeding on Beckham.Eli Manning had his worst game of the season from an efficiency perspective, but he came out and attacked the defense. There were a couple bad interceptions and he was off target at times, but he didn’t spend the whole game checking down for easy completions. After his second interception he kept throwing the ball down the field and picked up more than 100 yards on 5 completions and a touchdown. He averaged 9.1 yards per attempt, up from around 6 yards per attempt against the New Orleans Saints, Dallas Cowboys, and Jacksonville Jaguars.Beckham played like the receiver we all know he is, with 8 receptions for 131 yards and a touchdown.The defense played with fire, stepping up their run defense and held Christian McCaffrey to a season-low 3.4 yards per carry. They still miss Olivier Vernon off the edge, but they did get after Newton some in the passing game. They weren’t able to do quite enough to allow the offense to overcome bad play and bad calls, but this defense, which has played hard all season, stayed in it when it looked like they were going to have to once again carry a putrid offense. Does it mean anything and will they be able to carry it over to their Thursday night game against the Philadelphia Eagles? We’ll find out, but this feels as much like a win as possible for a heartbreaking loss. The fan base for the Vikings stretches well beyond Minnesota, with strongholds in North Dakota, South Dakota and parts of Iowa.It crosses the Canadian border, too. Just ask Brett Jones.Acquired in a trade with the New York Giants to help shore up a shaky interior of the offensive line, Jones joined the Vikings for practice on Monday after his completed physical exam consummated the deal. He smiled as he spoke afterward about the whirlwind he'd experienced as the final week of the preseason began, when the Giants pulled him off the field during drills on Sunday. Then the Vikings called him to arrange his travel."I was pretty surprised," Jones said, "and excited at the same time."As a youth on the Saskatchewan prairie, Jones rooted for the Vikings long before playing for them became a reality."There's a lot of purple up there," he said. "Growing up New York Giants Hats , this was probably the closest stadium we could get to."As an 18-year-old, Jones even bought a Phil Loadholt jersey to wear his devotion after the Vikings drafted him in the second round out of Oklahoma in 2009. He traveled south to watch a game that season against the Cincinnati Bengals at the now-demolished Metrodome."I just liked offensive linemen, and I didn't think anybody else would have that jersey so I picked that one," Jones said.After attending Regina University, Jones was the CFL's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman award winner in 2014, his second year with the Calgary Stampeders.The Giants signed him in 2015, and he made his first NFL start at left guard in 2016. The 6-foot-2, 312-pound Jones started 13 games last season at center, but he fell behind Jon Halapio on the depth chart in training camp this summer and carried a $2.914 million salary the tight-against-the-cap Giants had to shed.The Vikings have scouted the CFL thoroughly over the past few years. Wide receiver Brandon Zylstra is a fellow CFL alum in training camp."It was a unique path. It was the only option I had," Jones said. "Coming out of college I was short, and I'm still short today, so it was tough for me. I had to prove that I could play by playing in the CFL, and then when I got to the NFL I had to prove I belong here. I've just been doing that each and every day."With center Pat Elflein still not back at practice following offseason ankle and shoulder surgeries and left guard Nick Easton likely out for the year with a neck injury, Jones was a welcomed addition. Joe Berger retired after starting at right guard last season."On tape he's pretty good. He's stout, strong, really gritty, good in pass protection, solid on the double teams," coach Mike Zimmer said.

Tennessee.Now they must figure out a way to fix these problems Cheap Will Hernandez Jersey , so they don't fall into a 0-3 hole when they meet the New York Giants on Sunday."That's probably the biggest thing," coach Bill O'Brien said. "We have to eliminate those things. We have to coach it better, we've got to practice better. That's probably the biggest thing that we can need to improve on, that we have too many mistakes in all three phases."Houston had 11 penalties for 88 yards in Sunday's 20-17 defeat against the Titans. There were false starts, a clipping penalty and Jadeveon Clowney, who was inactive with an elbow injury, incurred one from the sideline for taunting.It's rather rare for a player not involved in the game to get a penalty. O'Brien said he didn't have many details on what happened, but that he wasn't surprised that the call was made."The taunting rule is a big emphasis ... that's a good crew," he said. "Pete Morelli does a good job. They saw it, they called it."Clowney declined comment when asked about it in the locker room on Monday.While the penalties were certainly a problem for Houston on Sunday, there were plenty of other issues that kept the team out of the win column. A big problem for Houston this season has been pass protection.While their revamped offensive line has been so good in run blocking that the team leads the NFL in yards rushing, the group hasn't been nearly as successful in protecting Deshaun Watson.Watson has been sacked seven times this season and hit or hurried numerous other times. O'Brien takes some of the blame for the trouble in pass protection and is working to find a solution."In the end Cheap Eli Manning Jersey , I have to call better plays in certain situations," he said. "Got to do a better job of getting them in the right situation to help them execute better ... I think I can help it with certain play calls moving forward."Even with all their problems on Sunday the Texans still had a chance to send it to overtime. But Watson took so long to connect with DeAndre Hopkins on a 31-yard throw that the clock ran out before Houston had a chance to kick a field goal. O'Brien also took the blame for that gaffe on Monday, saying that he should have called a better play in that situation.Sunday's loss came after the Texans lost to New England 27-20 in the opener.Despite all the difficulties O'Brien insists that they're not panicking, and they remain positive that they can turn things around."We haven't played well but we've been in it in the end and we've got to finish these games better," he said. "We realize we have to do a lot better. We have to play more consistently."Veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph said in situations such as this, things can begin to snowball, but that it's up to him and the other experienced players to help the team get on track."I wouldn't say us as a team, but you hear a lot of hype coming out of the preseason and things like that and then you have one or two games where it doesn't fall in your favor, sometimes it crumbles a little bit," he said. "But we're definitely standing tall in this locker room and we're moving on to next week.Giants are heavy underdogs on the road against Panthers in Week 5 The New York Giants have one win in four games and rank 29th in the league in points scored, with 73, and now they head on the road to take on the 2-1 Carolina Panthers http://www.giantscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-riley-dixon-jersey , who are coming off of their bye week. There’s no wonder why oddsmakers have the Giants as significant underdogs for Week 5. The Panthers opened as seven-point favorites. As of Tuesday, Bovada.lv remains at Giants minus-seven, while 5dimes.eu has the Giants at -7.5. Carolina has a 2-1 record coming out of the bye, with 71 total points scored despite playing one fewer game than the Giants. Their only loss is in their NFC South division, against the high-scoring Atlanta Falcons, while their wins are fairly high-quality, first besting the Dallas Cowboys in their home opener and then adding another home-field win over the now 3-1 Cincinnati Bengals. Meanwhile, the Giants have already suffered a loss to the Cowboys and in Week 4 managed just 18 points at home against the generally generous New Orleans Saints.The additional trouble comes from the Panthers offense. Carolina is tops in the league in rushing yardage, while the Giants rank 29th in rushing yardage allowed. The disparity is set in further relief when realizing that the Giants are finding themselves in serious points deficits early in games. Should that happen again on Sunday, there’s no doubting that Cam Newton and Christian McCaffrey will take to the ground often to both maintain and extend the lead. The matchup doesn’t bode well for the Giants either on offense, based on what we’ve seen over the previous four weeks. While Eli Manning has a strong, 74.2 completion percentage Cheap Sterling Shepard Jersey , it has only resulted in four touchdown passes thrown; he’s also taken 15 sacks. There’s no lack of receiving talent for him, with Odell Beckham, Jr., Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley his top targets. But Beckham has only caught 68.9 percent of the passes thrown his way this year (something that was an issue a season ago prior to his ankle injury and again in 2016). While Beckham doesn’t have Josh Norman to deal with, the addition of safety Eric Reid will certainly help out Carolina’s secondary and their ability to defend the Giants wideout. And Barkley isn’t generating much as a running back thanks to a low volume of carries, itself a result of the Giants constantly having to play catchup via the pass. The Giants will need to feed Barkley early in order to gain traction against the Panthers. However, if New York’s defense puts the team behind quickly we’ve already seen that Pat Shurmur is more than willing to pull back on the rushing attempts. While he’s admitted that might not be the best approach, it’s also hard to imagine a 180 in scheme and philosophy in such short order.The Giants have thus frequently become one-dimensional, and the way the Panthers match up to them on Sunday points to this again being the case. There’s no wonder why the Panthers are so heavily favored to enter the week; the 2018 Giants, as we know them, don’t deserve the odds on their side.

Survivor http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-laken-tomlinson-jersey , straight up picks for Week 2 NFL action The NFL returns on Thursday evening with an NFC North matchup to kickoff Week 2. The Cincinnati Bengals host the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday Night Football, in a matchup of two quarterbacks (Andy Dalton, Joe Flacco) that are, well, questionable at best.It’s time once again for our pick ‘em and Survivor pool contest options. We have the weekly prediction contest this season, and you can make those picks here. We also have a traditional “Pick ‘Em” contest. If you still want to join, the group name is Niners Nation, the group ID is 45734, and the password is go49ers. We also have a Survivor Pool http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-george-kittle-jersey , but I don’t think you can join that after Week 1. You can double-check at that link.The group name and password are the same as for the pick ‘em contest. The group ID is 32471.Last week I took the Baltimore Ravens in my money Survivor pool. A lot of people took the New Orleans Saints and were knocked off by that one. This week, I have a feeling some folks are going to take our 49ers at home against the Lions. The 49ers can win this game, but with various injuries and question marks, I’m not sure I’m comfortable taking them in Survivor. I’m leaning towards either Washington at home against Indianapolis or Denver at home against Oakland.Tonight, Week 2 opens with the Bengals and Ravens squaring off for early AFC North supremacy. The line is hovering around pick ‘em, with some sportsbooks going Ravens -1, and some going Bengals -1. Both teams won last week, but I think the Ravens are a little over-inflated by their beatdown of a bad Bills team. This is going to be a close game, but I think the Bengals are going to get the victory and cover.Here are the rest of my straight-up picks. I was 10-5-1 last week. I’ll have my picks against the spread later this weekend.Bengals @ Ravens: BengalsPanthers @ Falcons: FalconsChargers @ Bills: ChargersVikings @ Packers: PackersTexans @ Titans: TitansBrowns @ Saints: SaintsDolphins @ Jets: JetsChiefs @ Steelers: SteelersEagles @ Buccaneers: EaglesColts @ Washington: WashingtonCardinals @ Rams: RamsLions @ 49ers: 49ersRaiders @ Broncos: BroncosPatriots @ Jaguars: JaguarsGiants @ Cowboys: GiantsSeahawks @ Bears: BearsGolden Nuggets: Onto Week 2 Got some links to give you after this awful week White Adrian Colbert Jersey , made exponentially worse thanks to the Raiders realizing they were the Raiders and letting the Rams win. But first, I just want to touch on the point I made last night. In 2015, the 49ers faced the Minnesota Vikings to open the season. It was Jim Tomsula’s first game and the 49ers were somewhat of a question mark. What followed was some of the worst football I’ve ever witnessed, but the 49ers came out somewhat dominant in the end. Sure, they had issues, but it seemed like they could be a fun team to watch once they stopped looking sloppy.The 49ers ended up going 5-11 and there was nothing fun about that season. Nothing. The Vikings, meanwhile managed to win the NFC North, achieve a playoff birth, and would have won their playoff game if not for Blair Walsh missing a last second 27-yard field goal (that ‘ole Seahawk luck came in at the right time). Here’s the point: Both teams went in completely different directions.Now Youth Weston Richburg Jersey , the 2018 Vikings are not the 2015 Vikings and I tend to think the 49ers would have gotten punked pretty hard had that 2015 team played the 2018 Vikings. Despite the loss, the Vikings’ season didn’t end—and if the 49ers could beat them that night, you wouldn’t be wrong to think the Vikings weren’t winning anything that year. The 49ers get the Lions, and this is a much better way to gauge how the team will play. The Vikings was good experience. Hopefully they can mimic the 2015 team and get themselves a playoff birth.

his first home start in Kansas City Youth Mike Person Jersey , the fans had better not blink when he has the ball in his hands. Mahomes has one of the strongest arms the NFL ever has seen, and he has displayed it throughout the first two weeks of the regular season.“I know when I am amped up, I throw it pretty hard sometimes, but luckily I have guys that can catch it,” Mahomes told reporters this week. “There is so much difference of having arm ability. You have to be able to throw it hard, you have to be able to throw it with touch. You have to be able to do everything in this league and I try to get better at every single one of those throws every single day.鈥滺e said his hardest throw ever came two weeks ago, against the Chargers.“I have probably thrown it as hard as I can a couple times,” Mahomes said. “Whenever there are those tight windows, I let it go. I think the ball to Sammy [Watkins] the first week against the Chargers was probably the hardest I have ever thrown it. It was rifled in there.鈥滺e’s been rifling it all his life. As he explained last month during a visit with PFT Live, Mahomes forced a very specific change in the rules of T-ball when he a six-year-old shortstop. After breaking the glasses of a teammate with a rocket to first base, Mahomes moving forward was instructed to roll the ball instead.Return of the Elegant Tank? Last year, when the San Francisco 49ers set a record for consecutive close losses, we had a lot of fun talking about the “elegant tank” strategy. Now, after two close losses to not-great teams, guess who’s back?(Spoiler: it’s not Shady.)No one’s suggesting that Kyle Shanahan ordered up five turnovers to improve draft position (I hope). But with the team’s franchise quarterback and top running back out with ACL tears, it’s also clear that the playoffs are not a realistic goal Youth Dante Pettis Jersey , not with the Rams in the division and teams like the Eagles and Panthers competing for that wild card slot.Is it time for the Niners to write off this year and play for the future? Yeah, pretty much.I don’t think a team should ever try to lose a game. Ever. Not only is it an awful thing to do to fans, but losing is a habit you don’t want to develop. Last year’s team had it right — work out a lot of new plays and players early, then close strong with five straight wins. Picking up Jimmy Garoppolo in a trade had a lot to do with that — just as losing him to injury was a key to these last two losses.Something roughly like that would be perfect for the rest of this year. Not throwing games, but working out a bunch of young players, and new plays, stunts and coverages without fear that it will lead to a loss. By December, hopefully, you’ve found enough things that work to start winning some games, without losing a high draft pick.The Niners need a great edge rusher, like Nick Bosa or Clellin Ferrell, and that will require a top ten pick. Filling that need will help this team push for a future Super Bowl a lot more than edging out Arizona for 3rd place in the NFC West would.Let’s face it — a lot of us got too hyped about the Niners this year, after closing on that five game run. We were sort of joking about Jimmy G being undefeated forever, but not 100% joking. We took for granted that young talent like Ahkello Witherspoon and Adrian Colbert were locked in as guaranteed 10 year starters, when the reality was (and is) that they are overachieving 2nd or 3rd level prospects, who were always going to have rough days on the path to holding down their positions. They may be great http://www.authenticssanfrancisco49ers.com/cheap-laken-tomlinson-jersey , they may not, but I know I’m not the only one who took their success for granted.Every team has to balance building the future against winning today. Unless you’re the 2016 Denver Broncos, with a Hall of Fame quarterback in his last year and a solid core, you don’t burn all your bridges to win today. You don’t trade draft picks for veterans, burn up future salary cap with backloaded deals, and rely on free agents.Good franchises know how to time the cycle of rebuilding vs. winning now. You carefully build the team until you’ve created a Super Bowl window, then burn through everything you’ve saved up to win NOW. When the window closes, burn it down, trade your stars for draft picks and develop young talent — knowing you’ll lose and get good picks.A lot of us thought this team was further along in the cycle than it was, but this is a horribly depleted roster with a new management team and a very complicated scheme that takes time to learn and master. San Francisco was never going to be a deep playoff threat this year, and even next year is probably unrealistic too. Hopefully, John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan were clear-eyed about that all along. For everyone who wasn’t, the injuries have been awfully clarifying. Bring on the tank!

Joe Staley questionable Youth Adrian Colbert Jersey , Dante Pettis out this week The San Francisco 49ers dodged some significant injury bullets Sunday. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said on Monday that Joe Staley is questionable this week with his knee injury, while Dante Pettis is out and will be week-to-week after that. It’s not ideal, but it could have been a lot worse.Shanahan offered some additional updates on the injury report. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey, center Weston Richburg, and wide receiver Marquise Goodwin are also listed as questionable. Richard Sherman is probably out this week, but they’ll see how he responds to treatment. One bit of good news is that the team expects Jaquiski Tartt back from his shoulder injury.The 49ers might get Adrian Colbert back in the starting lineup, but Shanahan wants to wait and see what the week shows. Colbert was healthy enough to play special teams last week, but Shanahan said he did not get enough defensive practice reps due to his hip injury http://www.49erscheapstore.com/joe-staley-jersey-cheap , and so they went with D.J. Reed. Shanahan seemed to suggest Reed could still stake a claim to the job, but he said Colbert could get back into that role this week.The return of Tartt is an interesting one just given how well Antone Exum played in Week 4. He had some mistakes, but he opened the game with a pick-six and had some big plays on the ball throughout the game. The 49ers might find themselves with some really solid depth at strong safety after concerns when Tartt went down.The 49ers have been snake bit with injuries and it seems like every week it’s a new set of situations to deal with. This week it isn’t near as bad as it could have been. Dante Pettis being out for the season would hurt his promising development as a rookie and losing Joe Staley would be something on the level of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Instead, the 49ers will potentially get back Staley this week, and Pettis will get some time to get his knee right.Kyle Juszczyk remains the third quarterback The San Francisco 49ers had to reshuffle the quarterback position after starter Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury. C.J. Beathard is now the starter going into Sunday’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers, and Nick Mullens serves as his backup. But there’s always Plan C if either of those don’t work. Per Matt Maiocco, Kyle Juszczyk remains the third quarterback in emergencies. The 49ers haven’t carried a true third quarterback the past two seasons due to roster constraints, and Juszczyk has been the guy to serve in a pinch. What could happen if he’s called in? Well here’s what he told Maiocco: Part of me wants the 49ers to do well and get out of Los Angeles with little issues as possible so we can fully gauge what they have going forward. But the other http://www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com/k_waun-williams-jersey-authentic , and more chaotic side of me says, “Nooooooooooo! Forget all of that! Let’s put Juszczyk in there and watch that circus.” The only way anyone is going to see Juszczyk is if both Beathard and Mullens are knocked out of the game. At that point, it’s mostly a formality where the 49ers would be focusing less on winning and more on trying to escape Los Angeles with what little they have left. As interesting as a Juszczyk game could be seeing him behind center, he just won’t match up to the game where the New York Jets had to put their punter in—and the punter actually did quite well. He still managed to realize he was the punter and cough up the game, but he made it one of the better games that weekend. Offensive weapon indeed.

DALLAS — Even though the San Jose Sharks and Dallas Stars haven’t been Pacific Division bunkmates since the 2012-2013 season Max Pacioretty Jersey Womens , their rivalry, which will be renewed Friday at American Airlines Center, remains a healthy one.On Nov. 8, Dallas (15-10-3, 33 points) hosted San Jose and edged the Sharks 4-3.This time around, the Stars are coming off a 4-1 win at home against Edmonton and former Dallas coach Ken Hitchcock on Monday and are 9-3-2 on home ice.Article continues below ...“We’re going to have a good effort tomorrow night (Friday) just because we’re rested up,” Stars first-year coach Jim Montgomery said after practice Thursday. “You could tell in practice today (Thursday) that we had a lot of jump.”Dallas, which has won three straight games, also figures to get a nice boost from the season debut of veteran forward Martin Hanzal, who has been sidelined since March after having spinal fusion surgery.“I expect him to help us right away,” Montgomery said of Hanzal. “Do I expect him to be crisp and sharp? No, he’s got to get into it. The more he gets into a rhythm here, the better we’re going to be as a hockey team.”The Stars have had the rare benefit of several good practice days since their last game at the beginning of the week.And Montgomery was pleased with what he saw from his team in practice on Thursday morning.“Today (Thursday) Nic Dowd Jersey Womens , we were working on some puck possession and timing and spacing, offensive zone and neutral zone,” Montgomery said. “That was the focus.”Ben Bishop will start in goal for Dallas.San Jose (14-10-5, 33 points) defeated Carolina 5-1 on Wednesday at SAP Center, a nice bounce-back performance after the Sharks went 1-4-0 on a five-game road trip and were outscored 21-9.“Yeah, it was a good game,” San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said postgame. “I was a little worried about our energy the first game back, but we got off to a quick start, got that first goal, which was huge. We had some bounces tonight, which we haven’t gotten a lot of lately and (Martin Jones) was great (in goal). It wasn’t a textbook game, but there was a lot of good stuff.”The Sharks, who have now won two straight and are 5-7-3 on the road Authentic Pat Tillman Jersey , were buoyed by the return of forward Timo Meier, out the previous three games with an upper-body injury.Meier had a goal and two assists in the victory.“Yeah, it felt great (to be back),” Meier said. “It was important to get healthy. I was obviously real excited to be playing again. I had a lot of energy today (Wednesday) and think we played a great game overall.”Sharks franchise icon Joe Thornton added three assists, giving him 1,038 for his career. Thornton needs two assists to tie Hall of Famer Marcel Dionne for 10th all-time with 1,040 helpers.These former division rivals meet once more in the regular season, next Thursday in San Jose. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) Max Domi had been a cornerstone of the Arizona Coyotes‘ rebuilding project in the desert. He was young, feisty, skilled and had a great hockey pedigree.Now the Coyotes have a new, young cornerstone who also happens to fill a need at center after trading Domi to the Montreal Canadiens for Alex Galchenyuk on Friday night.”Sometimes in this league you have to give to get,” Coyotes general manager John Chayka said on a conference call. ”Max is a very talented young player in his own right Pat Tillman Jersey Limited , but hopefully this works out where it will be a fit for both sides.”The 23-year-old Domi was targeted to be part of a youthful new foundation for the struggling Coyotes when they selected him with the 12th overall pick in 2013. The son of former NHL tough guy Tie Domi, Max scored 18 goals and had 34 assists as a rookie in 2015-16, but his goal production has dipped the past two seasons. He had nine goals and 29 assists in an injury-plagued 2016-17 season, and nine goals with 36 assists last season.The 24-year-old Galchenyuk has been a steady scorer since Montreal selected him third overall in 2012. He has eclipsed 20 goals twice, including a career-high 30 in 2015-16. Galchenyuk had 19 goals and 32 assists last season.”It gives us optionality, gives us some depth there, versatility,” Chayka said. ”You get a guy who has been very productive and has played in those premium positions, so that was an added bonus with this deal.”Galchenyuk signed a three-year $14.7-million contract in July 2017 that carries a salary cap hit of $4.9 million per season. Domi is coming off his entry-level contract and will need to sign a new deal.Galchenyuk was born in Milwaukee when his father, Alexander Galchenyuk, was playing for the Wisconsin city’s minor league team. The family returned to Europe when Alex was 4 years old.

WASHINGTON — The Washington Capitals open a five-game homestand Saturday night when they host the Dallas Stars at Capital One Arena.The Capitals (5-4-2) began a stretch of 15 games in 30 days with a 6-4 loss on Thursday night in Montreal http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-alexander-kerfoot-jersey , capping a 2-2 road trip.Dallas (7-5-0) is 2-1 on its six-game road trip after a 2-1 win on Thursday night in Toronto and is 4-1 in its last five games.Article continues below ...Anton Khudobin made 30 saves in his first start since Oct. 16, Jamie Benn and Devin Shore scored, and Tyler Seguin had two assists for the Stars.Shore has goals in back-to-back games and points in five of his last six games (2-6-8).“He’s just a smart hockey player,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery told NHL.com. “I like the way he possesses pucks and the poise he has with the puck. He’s starting to get a lot of confidence and with that he’s skating harder and winning more one-on-one battles. He’s a guy that I’m going to continue to move around because I think he can get other players going.”After playing on the fourth earlier in the week against Montreal — and getting a goal and two assists — Shore played on the wing with Seguin and Mattias Janmar against Toronto.“He’s fun to play with,” Seguin said. “He’s making a lot of things happen. If it wasn’t for him in Montreal, we don’t win that game. He’s really coming into his own and maturing and playing good hockey.”On Friday, the Starts announced that defenseman Dillon Heatherington, 23, would be recalled from the Texas Stars with Connor Carrick heading to injured reserve. Carrick did not play against Toronto after blocking a shot in the team’s loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday afternoon.The Capitals appeared to have fashioned a great ending to their road trip before the Canadiens scored three goals in the final 3:04 Thursday night.“Obviously it’s frustrating in the situation,” goalie Braden Holtby told NHL.com. “I think we had a chance to steal one there and just came up short. Luck seemed to be on our side for most of the third, and then it turned. We didn’t do enough to push the other way.”Alex Ovechkin and Lars Eller each scored twice Womens Carl Soderberg Jersey , and Holtby made 38 saves for the Capitals. It was Ovechkin’s first two-goal game of the season.Washington will be without 38-year-old defenseman Brooks Orpik against Dallas. He’ll miss his second straight game Saturday night because of an undisclosed lower-body injury.Christian Djoos, 24, and Madison Bowey, 23, formed the team’s third defensive pairing against Montreal.“I thought they did some good things,” Capitals coach Todd Reirden told the Washington Post. “I think Madison in particular was able to show us his skating. I thought he made some plays offensively, just a couple chances against for them. But for the most part, they limited it.”Holtby is 2-4 with a 4.06 goals-against average and .865 save percentage against Dallas. Ben Bishop of the Stars is 2-6-2 with a 3.46 GAA and an .888 save percentage against Washington.The Stars went 0-1-1 against the Capitals last season but have won six of their last seven games in Washington. GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — J.T. Compher was just trying to play his game and contribute after 16 games out of the Colorado Avalanche lineup due to injury. He ended up with a memorable night.Compher scored a pair of short-handed goals on the same penalty kill in his return to game action, and the Avalanche defeated the Arizona Coyotes 5-1 Friday night.“Just trying to get a feel for the game. We’ve been working hard these last few weeks once I’ve been feeling better to be in good hockey shape and feel confident about my game,” Compher said. “It was a fun one for sure.”Philipp Grubauer made 37 saves in his fifth win and first shutout of the season.

His first goal came at 7:28 of the first when Matt Nieto gathered the puck off a turnover, drew two defensemen and dished off to Compher, who scored on a clear shot.At 8:53, with the Coyotes still on the man advantage, Compher scored on a breakaway. It was his fifth goal in six games played. Compher had been out since Oct. 16 with a head injury.Antti Raanta had a rocky return, starting in net for the first time since Nov. 2 and surrendering three first-period goals. The Coyotes’ No. 1 goaltender missed eight games with a lower body injury before finishing with 34 saves on Friday.“The first one’s a straight shot, you have to make that save,” Raanta said. “It was three-nothing and the game was pretty much over. Rough start for sure. You give three goals in three shots, you’re pretty much burying your whole team.”The Avalanche went ahead 3-0 on Rantanen’s goal. It came at 9:39 of the first when linemate Gabriel Landeskog flipped a pass up the ice and over the defense to Rantanen, who beat Raanta for his ninth goal of the season.The Avalanche’s high-scoring top line of Rantanen http://www.avalancheshoponline.com/authentic-j.t.-compher-jersey , Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon added to their combined point total with six points.

You’re prepared game-plan wise but it takes ownership of a player to be ready to play,” Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet said.NOTES: Actor Vince Vaughn, of “Old School” and “Wedding Crashers” movie fame, dropped the ceremonial puck before the game, then threw it to fans in the seats. … Coyotes D Jordan Oesterle was scratched for the second straight game … Avalanche F Gabriel Bourque was scratched for just the third time this season. … Colorado is one of two Western Conference teams with eight road victories this season.UP NEXTColorado: Hosts the Dallas Stars on Saturday night.Arizona: Hosts the Calgary Flames on Sunday afternoon.

Behind the mask is a mind filled with a web of a thousand thoughts Kailer Yamamoto Jersey , worries and a singular focus of what it takes to win a game.Then the next game, then the one after that.”There is no shut-off for a goaltender,” retired goalie Brian Boucher said. ”The mind doesn’t shut off.”A starting NHL goaltender bears a burden unlike any position in hockey and few others in sports, and the resulting pressure builds up over the course of a season. By this time of year, with the playoffs on the horizon, No. 1 goalies have grinded through almost six months of work and are battling fatigue that threatens to derail their team’s hopes.Andrei Vasilevskiy of Tampa Bay is going through it for the first time while Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals is used to it by now. Goalies of all ages have no choice but to manage the physical and mental hurdles.”It’s one of those things that you’ve got find ways to make sure you’re prepared and ready to play every game,” Holtby said. ”As a goaltender, there’s not much room to take nights off.”It’s worse for the goalies whose teams can’t afford to start a backup. Boucher started the final 13 games for Philadelphia in 2010 to help them make the playoffs, Jonathan Quick started 20 of the final 21 games for the Los Angeles Kings when they tried to make a furious push to make it in 2015 and Kari Lehtonen could be counted on to play the final nine games of the Dallas Stars‘ season now as they claw for a spot.”You’ll go through the whole night thinking about tomorrow, show up to the rink in the morning thinking about tonight and then you show up to the game thinking about the game,” said Boucher Womens Kris Russell Jersey , now an analyst for NBC Sports. ”Not until that horn goes off at the very end can you finally go, `Whew,’ and take a deep breath and hopefully it’s in a celebration with your teammates. …. You have a shower, you feel good about things, you go home, you kind of decompress and then the next day it starts again: the butterflies, the nerves, the thinking about your opponent. And that’s the mental fatigue that comes into it.”That’s what Vasilevskiy is dealing with at age 23, 58 starts into his first season as the full-time starter and the league leader in victories.”Tiredness is something that I probably never faced before,” he told The Tampa Bay Times.The same goes for Winnipeg goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who is between the pipes for meaningful games and on the cusp of his first playoff appearance. Jets goaltending coach Wade Flaherty talks to Hellebuyck almost daily about what he needs to be successful Leon Draisaitl Jersey , and the staff pays careful attention to making sure the 24-year-old is good to go.Coach Paul Maurice said the Jets are aware of the balance between rhythm and rest but aren’t holding Hellebuyck back.”There’s a fatigue component that a No. 1 goaltender also has to embrace,” Maurice said. ”He has to learn how to play when he doesn’t feel 100 percent right because that’s basically going to be his life.”Winnipeg has been able to give Hellebuyck blocks of two or three days completely off, a rarity for top goalies this time of year. The Nashville Predators have a big enough lead atop the Central Division that they can afford to lighten Pekka Rinne’s workload down the stretch, which could be a huge benefit.”I like thinking outside the box,” former goalie Martin Biron said. ”You may have a Friday-Saturday game, have a Tuesday game, have a Thursday game. You can play your starter on Friday-Saturday and not play him on Tuesday so he gets Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (off) and then he gets ready for the weekend again for the Thursday. There’s a lot more days to be able to decompress and really think about how to reset and re-prepare.”Holtby got a 10-day reset from a month-plus of struggles as Philipp Grubauer started four games in a row. Having a reliable backup is a luxury Washington has – and Holtby doesn’t like taking days off, either. Toronto starter Frederik Andersen recently joked that he’s more tired of being asked if he’s tired than he is from facing the most shots in the league.Practice shots http://www.officialhockeypanthersshop.com/authentic-adidas-roberto-luongo-jersey , warmups, travel and mental and physical preparation are also part of the wear and tear. Analyst Justin Goldman of The Goalie Guild said those can be spaced out over weeks and months.”Anything you can do to get a little bit of extra sleep over the course of the season is absolutely monumental when it comes time for the playoff push,” Goldman said.Biron, who started 59 games for Philadelphia in 2007-08 and backed up Henrik Lundqvist when the New York Rangers realized the ”King” needed more time off, figures 60 is the perfect number for a starter. For someone like Vasilevskiy who can’t afford to learn and wait for next year, Boucher said he hopes a more relaxed market like Tampa Bay helps now and the rush of the playoffs gets him through the grind in a few weeks.”I think Vasilevskiy’s going to be fine just because you watch his physical attributes, they’re through the roof,” Boucher said. ”So the physical side doesn’t look like it’s an issue. Now it’s his time to shine.”— TAMPA, Fla. (AP) The Boston Bruins missed a chance to edge even closer to a division title.Andrei Vasilevskiy made 33 saves, Braydon Coburn and Ryan Callahan both had two assists during a three-goal second period, and the Tampa Bay Lightning beat Boston 4-0 Tuesday night to move into a tie for the Atlantic Division lead with the Bruins.”They hadn’t beaten us this year http://www.officialkings.com/authentic-adidas-alex-iafallo-jersey , and they were determined to do that,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. ”The first period, I thought we were clearly outplayed for the most part. I thought the second period we didn’t give up as many quality chances and three of them went in. That’s the way it goes some times.”Brayden Point, Victor Hedman, Chris Kunitz and J.T. Miller scored for the Lightning, who had lost four of five.”We want to finish in first place,” Hedman said. ”The first two periods were some of the best hockey we’ve played all year. I was very happy with the way we played.”Tampa Bay played without star center Steven Stamkos, who left Sunday’s game against Nashville in the second period with a lower-body injury. It hasn’t been announced if Stamkos will play in either of the Lightning’s final two regular-season games.Tuukka Rask stopped 32 shots for the Bruins, who had gone 5-0-4 over their previous nine games. Boston has three regular-season games left.”They were definitely the better team,” Rask said.Vasilevskiy stopped a breakaway shot by David Pastrnak in the second, a period that saw Point Womens Anze Kopitar Jersey , Hedman and Kunitz all have goals as the Lightning took a 3-0 lead. Tampa Bay has outscored its opponents 109-72 during the second this season.It was Vasilevskiy’s eighth shutout this season and first win (1-4-1) in six games against Boston. The eight shutouts set a franchise record.”When he’s on his game, he’s really hard to beat,” Point said.Miller scored during a 2-on-1 break early in the third.”A complete effort by the whole team,” Lightning coach Jon Cooper said.Boston won three of four in the season series.NOTES: Bruins D Brandon Carlo, hurt in Saturday’s game against Florida, will have surgery this week for a fractured left ankle.

OTTAWA Anaheim Ducks Hoodies Authentic , Ontario (AP) — Hockey was almost secondary to the Florida Panthers and Ottawa Senators on Monday night.The teams dealt with two separate delays that left a number of players shaken. The teams were sent to their dressing rooms with 3:37 remaining in the first period as first responders dealt with a medical emergency in the stands as a fan required CPR.The time remaining in the period was played at the start of the second, but another delay ensued when Vincent Trochek twisted his right leg awkwardly and required a stretcher to be taken off the ice.“This was one of the weirder games I’ve been involved in, it was very tough,” Senators coach Guy Boucher said. “We all knew they were trying to revive the gentleman, so nobody was thinking hockey there. Our prayers are definitely with the patient and the family.”Mike Hoffman scored and extended his point streak to 16 games in his return to Ottawa after being traded to Florida, and the Panthers topped the Senators 7-5.Troy Brouwer, Aleksander Barkov, Jared McCann Anaheim Ducks Hats Authentic , Evgenii Dadonov, Micheal Haley and Frank Vatrano also scored for Florida.Hoffman, who has nine goals and 10 assists in the streak, admitted the goal was special.“That was a big goal,” Hoffman said. “That I was able to do it made it that much more special to put the nail in the coffin. I was excited that I scored, but I guess other people aren’t allowed to get excited if you get a goal.”Juho Lammikko picked up four assists. James Reimer stopped 33 shots and the Panthers beat the Senators for the second time in eight days.Matt Duchene had a pair of goals for the Senators. Drake Batherson, Zack Smith and Brady Tkachuk also scored.Craig Anderson allowed six goals on 22 shots before being replaced by Mike McKenna. McKenna gave up one goal on nine shots.It was a strange game in many ways. The first period was cut short due to a medical emergency in the stands. The remaining time was played at the start of the second, but a second delay ensued when Vincent Trochek twisted his right leg awkwardly and required a stretcher to be taken off the ice.Trailing 6-3 Custom Anaheim Ducks Jerseys , the Senators made things interesting as Smith and Tkachuk scored and cut the deficit to a single goal at the halfway mark of the third. Ottawa had two power-play opportunities, but were unable to capitalize.“That’s the one positive to come out of the game,” Smith said. “We didn’t give up. It would have been easy to just coast through the third being down three goals, but we came in the room and we talked and we knew we could come back on these guys.”Smith admitted it was difficult to get back into the game with the two medical emergencies.“We tried our best, both teams, to put both incidents behind us and play a hockey game,” Smith said. “Those are two things you never want to see.”The Panthers made it 4-1 when Dadonov banged a puck over the goal line with 0.3 seconds remaining in what was the first period.Ottawa cut the lead in half early in the second as Duchene scored his second of the game off a great feed from Batherson. Shortly after that, Batherson scored on the power play off a pass from Duchene www.officialcoyotes.com , who has 15 points (six goals, nine assists) in his last seven games.Haley, playing in his first game of the season, and Vatrano also scored, ending Anderson’s night.“It wasn’t pretty, but at the end it was a gutsy win and points we needed,” said Haley.The Senators opened the scoring as Duchene netted his ninth of the season early in the first, but the Panthers answered with three goals for a 3-1 lead in the shortened period.Brouwer tied the game on a one-timer from the side of the net. A power-play goal by Barkov gave the Panthers the lead Arizona Coyotes T-Shirts Authentic , and McCann made it 3-1 midway through the period, scoring on a partial breakaway.NOTES: Christian Jaros returned to the Senators blue line after being a healthy scratch. Chris Wideman found himself the odd man out.UP NEXTSenators: At Minnesota on Wednesday.Panthers: At Tampa Bay on Wednesday. CALGARY, Alberta (AP) NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman says the Calgary Flames‘ financial situation ”continues to deteriorate” as the team remains at the aging Scotiabank Saddledome.”This building, in its time, was a work of art. Its time is long past,” Bettman said Friday in Calgary as part of his Western Canadian tour. ”They don’t build buildings like this anymore.”Bettman listed a lack of amenities for fans and players as well as opportunities for ownership to generate revenue among the many shortcomings of the building that opened in 1983.He said it simply doesn’t compare in any way to Rogers Place, the new home of the Edmonton Oilers.”Have you been up the road to Edmonton?” Bettman said. ”Do you see a difference between the two buildings? You know the answer to the question.”Bettman added that Calgary concert-goers are losing out, too.”I was told that there were 27 acts Arizona Coyotes Hoodies Authentic , some of them multiple days, that have played in Edmonton since the building opened that haven’t played here,” Bettman said. ”That goes to the quality of life of the city and that’s an indication as to the differences in the buildings.”Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has said the Flames’ proposal for a $500 million arena places a heavy tax burden on the city, but the Flames say the city’s plan would ultimately see the team foot the entire cost of construction.Bettman was involved throughout the process in Edmonton, working with then Mayor Stephen Mandel and owner Daryl Katz in helping get the deal done. He has no such involvement in Calgary.”You can’t dance unless you’re invited to the dance. I haven’t been invited to this dance,” Bettman said.

OTTAWA — Carey Price can move into a tie for second place on the all-time list of Montreal Canadiens goaltending wins Saturday night at Canadian Tire Centre.By defeating the Ottawa Senators Mathieu Perreault Jersey , Price will record victory number 289, same as Patrick Roy and behind only Jacques Plante, who won 314 games.It will be the 563rd game for Price, while Roy played 551 and Plante played 556.Article continues below ...“That’s a statistic I can definitely be proud of,” Price told reporters after practice on Friday, per NHL.com. “I’ve played with a lot of great hockey players and on a lot of good teams in my career. It helped me along the way to get here. There are a lot of people in my life who have helped me get to this point, and I’m very grateful for all of them.”Plagued by injuries in two of the past three seasons, the 31-year old Price has looked sharp through four starts in 2018-19. Into Ottawa he takes a 2-1-1 record with a 2.24 goals against average and .912 save percentage, giving the Canadiens (4-1-1) a little bit of their swagger back.“He’s a dominant player that other teams have to prepare for,” Brendan Gallagher, who has been teammates with Price for his entire, seven-season career, told NHL.com. “With him, it’s come to a point where you just expect brilliance every single night. He’s been through some ups and downs Nikolaj Ehlers Jersey , he’s dealt with adversity, but he’s handled it as well as anyone can. What he’s meant to this team and organization is impressive. It’s fun to be his teammate.”The Canadiens have won their last three games defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins, Detroit Red Wings and, on Wednesday, downing the St. Louis Blues 3-2. The Senators (3-2-1) have won two in a row, beating the Los Angeles Kings and Dallas Stars by scores of 5-1 and 4-1, respectively.The Senators suffered a significant injury Monday against the Stars, however.Impressive first round pick Brady Tkachuk tore a leg ligament during the first period – but finished the game – and is expected to miss a month. Taking his place alongside Chris Tierney and Mark Stone on a line that was enjoying success will be Ryan Dzingel, who missed the last two games with a lower body injury.Dzingel, the team’s co-goal scoring leaders last season with 23, had two goals and two assists in four outings before coming out of the lineup.“We had a lot of time off,” Dzingel said. “It was just a precautionary thing to make sure it didn’t stretch out for the whole season. I feel a lot better now.“It was a full team decision and I’m glad they helped me out with that. Guys who are playing don’t want to take time off, so it’s hard to say yes to that. But it was a good idea.”The fact that the Canadiens and Senators are off to winning starts is unexpected in what is considered a transition year for both teams but Ottawa coach Guy Boucher doesn’t see the Canadiens that way, however.“They’ve played terrific http://www.jetsshoppro.com/authentic-patrik-laine-jersey , but I’m not surprised,” Boucher said. “When I sit in my office and look at their lineup, I don’t know why people were not expecting them to be good. They’ve got four solid lines of good hockey players that are coming at you, with a terrific goaltender.” LAS VEGAS (AP) George McPhee’s endgame has always been about making the Golden Knights contenders.Strategic moves to keep winning.The veteran general manager has ridden his savvy all the way to the Stanley Cup Final, a stirring run by the first-year franchise and the first major sports team in Las Vegas. While the expansion draft gets most of the attention in attempts to explain the unusual success, the moves made by McPhee in late February, when the trade deadline came along, have proven just as important.”I wanted to wait as long as we could to determine what we had as a team,” McPhee recalled. ”At the trade deadline we felt it was a very good team. But it was getting thin, we were getting banged up, guys out of the lineup, we had other guys playing hurt. We wanted to do the very best we could for this team that was playing its guts out, to help it.”He began moving pawns across the NHL chessboard, starting with the acquisition of forward Tomas Tatar from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for three draft picks: a first-round pick in 2018 Brian Gibbons Jersey Womens , a second-round pick in 2019 and a third-round pick in 2021. Tatar brought with him a contract worth $15.9 million through the 2020-21 season.While the Golden Knights did send Brendan Leipsic to Vancouver for Philip Holm, perhaps the biggest trade was the one for bruising forward Ryan Reaves from Pittsburgh, a move that included the Golden Knights acquiring 40 percent of Derick Brassard’s contract. Brassard going to Pittsburgh from Ottawa meant the talented center would not be going to Winnipeg – the team Vegas just beat in a rugged Western Conference final.Many wondered whether the trade would be worth it given Reaves’ notoriety for physical play. But Reaves brought some brawn to the Golden Knights and scored the game-winning goal in Game 5 at Winnipeg.”We just thought when we get into the games down the stretch and we’re in the playoffs, we can have a guy that can play the game right,” McPhee said. ”Ryan did a good job of providing the line and getting us good, hard, safe minutes on some nights. Even though they’re not scoring like some of the other lines, they’re one of our better lines because they’re playing the game right. The other team isn’t getting chances, we’re keeping it deep on them and playing physical on them.”McPhee and coach Gerard Gallant also wanted to make sure the chemistry built over the first five months of the inaugural season wasn’t disrupted. And that meant keeping most of the lineup intact.That included unrestricted free agents David Perron and James Neal, both of whose names swirled in trade rumors, and at the beginning of the season were perceived as rentals until the deadline. Nobody saw the Golden Knights doing as well they did, so it was conceivable guys like Perron and Neal could’ve been sent to playoff contenders for future draft picks or younger, up-and-coming players by the deadline.As it turned out, Perron and Neal were already on a playoff contender and on their way to stellar seasons. Perron registered a career-high 66 points in the regular season Jaroslav Halak Jersey Womens , while Neal piled up 25 goals, scoring at least 20 in each of his first 10 NHL seasons. The only other current players to do the same: Jaromir Jagr, Patrick Kane, Alex Ovechkin, Jonathan Toews and Thomas Vanek.”We knew that we weren’t moving anybody out,” Gallant said. ”We were happy with our lineup, we were happy with the group of players we got. We talked about adding players to our team, to make our team better and we definitely did that. But there was no thought about moving any of players out at that time. We had a great season, everything was going good and we wanted to make sure we had enough security for a playoff run and that’s what they did.”The Golden Knights await the winner of the East final between Tampa Bay and Washington, with Game 7 set for Wednesday night. The Stanley Cup Final begins Monday.—

Thanks Darren Helm Jersey , Vegas.The Stanley Cup Final run of the expansion Golden Knights contributed to what is expected to be a healthy increase for the salary cap, giving NHL teams more freedom to make deals. With elite center John Tavares, top defenseman John Carlson and a strong group of free agents available soon, the ceiling for player spending will rise to between $78 and $82 million from $75 million.”The higher the better,” said Brian MacLellan, whose Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup. ”It makes it a lot more fun.”Gentlemen, open your wallets – players like Tavares, Carlson and forwards James van Riemsdyk and Paul Stastny won’t come cheap.With GMs meeting Thursday in Dallas ahead of this weekend’s draft, trade talk is percolating before free agency opens July 1. Ottawa has already traded winger Mike Hoffman, and Buffalo center Ryan O’Reilly, Pittsburgh forward Phil Kessel, Montreal captain Max Pacioretty and Washington backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer could all be on the move.Ottawa captain Erik Karlsson is the star who will go to the highest bidder if the Senators are willing to trade the Norris Trophy-winning defenseman with one year remaining on his contract. GM Pierre Dorion seemed to be in a tough spot after it was revealed last week that Karlsson’s wife had filed an order of protection against Hoffman’s girlfriend http://www.redwingsshoponline.com/authentic-dylan-larkin-jersey , Monika Caryk, alleging harassment and bullying. He solved that issue by acquiring Mikkel Boedker from the San Jose Sharks for Hoffman in the first major trade of the offseason.San Jose flipped Hoffman to Florida soon thereafter, freeing up salary-cap space to pursue Tavares or Russian standout Ilya Kovalchuk. The Panthers got a 20-goal scorer in Hoffman, who’s just 28.More immediate decisions await the Islanders and Capitals. New York could make a move to re-sign Tavares before he can begin speaking with other teams on Monday, and recently hired president of hockey operations Lou Lamoriello has to hire a new coach.The Islanders might’ve gotten a fortunate bounce when Barry Trotz resigned from his job with Washington less than two weeks after lifting the Cup. Re-signing Tavares and hiring a replacement for fired coach Doug Weight go hand-in-hand.If it doesn’t work out and Tavares hits the open market, a contract with an annual salary approaching Connor McDavid’s $12.5 million isn’t out of the question. Nashville GM David Poile said cap situations put five or six teams in position for top-end free agents – and knock about half the league out of the running.”We all have different commitments already of contracts,” Poile said. ”Some teams have a lot of room. Some teams don’t have very much room.”Big-revenue teams with money to spend include the retooling New York Rangers and the rising Toronto Maple Leafs. The Rangers are among several teams linked to Kovalchuk, the 35-year-old winger who’s looking to return to the NHL after five seasons in the Kontinental Hockey League.Former Los Angeles Kings defenseman Slava Voynov, who won an Olympic gold medal with Kovalchuk, is back in the U.S. and could be on the way to returning. Voynov was convicted of domestic abuse and is suspended indefinitely by the NHL, which makes it unclear how a team will pave the way for him to play.”Right now he’s a suspended player, and until anything changes there Frans Nielsen Jersey Kids , I don’t think we’re in a position to comment any further,” Kings GM Rob Blake said. ”A lot of this has to take place between him, his agent and the National Hockey League.”Dozens of current free agents don’t know where they’ll be playing next season. Beyond Tavares, Carlson is the most in-demand pending free agent after leading all defensemen in regular-season and playoff points.Carlson plans to have his day with the Stanley Cup in Washington, but because of the uncertainty of the offseason, there’s no guarantee he’ll be there this fall.”We’ll see what happens,” Carlson said. ”I love it here and all that, I want to stay here, but there’s more to it than that.”— SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) — The Florida Panthers are glad to have Roberto Luongo back in goal.Luongo, who returned to the lineup after missing five games with a knee injury, earned his 77th career shutout and the Panthers beat the Boston Bruins 5-0 on Tuesday night.Luongo made 33 saves and passed Ed Belfour and Tony Esposito for sole possession of ninth place on the NHL’s shutout list.“It was great for Lou to be back in there Gordie Howe Jersey ,” Panthers coach Bob Boughner said. “His rebound control was amazing. I’m happy for Lou — he moved into ninth all-time and he did it in nice fashion.”Mike Hoffman scored twice. Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and two assists, and Mike Matheson and Evgenii Dadonov also scored. Aleksander Barkov had three assists and Keith Yandle added two.“The boys did a great job,” Luongo said. “There weren’t a lot of breakdowns, a lot of odd-man rushes, breakaways, stuff like that. It really helps my game when we play like that defensively and it also translates in offense for our club. Take more of those, hopefully.”The return of Luongo was a game-time decision, and it turned out to be the right call.“It was a huge boost for the team,” Hoffman said. “He’s a solid goaltender. He definitely was a big part of this win.”Jaroslav Halak made 39 saves as the Panthers had a season-high 44 shots on goal. The Bruins lost for the third time in four games.“Tonight, it was men against boys at times, it looked like,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. “Some of our younger players had their hands full.”Huberdeau made it 3-0. His shot from the left circle was blocked by Halak Authentic Gustav Nyquist Jersey , but the puck trickled through his pads at 15:14 of the second period.
