James Reimer keeps flinching and he doesn’t like it.Several times in practice already this season Eric Fehr Jersey Womens , the Florida Panthers goaltender has braced for a shot up high because he is wearing smaller, more formfitting chest and arm protectors required by the NHL.“I’ve never flinched in my life,” Reimer said. “I consider myself a tough guy. I’m from the country. I can take a few bruises here and there. But at what point? At what point is one guy going to let one loose and a guy’s going to break his arm?”Those are some of the questions goalies around the league are asking, and some of them have the bruises to show for it after equipment changes agreed to by the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association. Goalie pads and pants have already been tweaked with the overall aim of boosting scoring while rewarding athletic ability in the crease.The league is trying to address concerns. The hope is to make goalies feel safe in chest protectors that are roughly an inch smaller and tighter to the body than past models.“I think the guys that have tried multiple units, they’ve found something that has pleased them and they go out there and do their job,” said NHL vice president of hockey operations Kay Whitmore, the former goalie who’s in charge of this department at the league office. “I deal with each one of those guys on a daily basis and trying to make them understand what they need and what we can get them, and get them out there and feeling comfortable. It’s been working.”Whitmore fielded complaints through training camp, but last week said the number has dwindled. Some goalies eased their concerns by adding some more padding or switching to another chest protector, while others are still dealing with the change.Philadelphia’s Brian Elliott complained of bruises early in the season in an interview with the Courier-Post, and two-time Vezina Trophy winner Sergei Bobrovsky of the Blue Jackets last week told the Columbus Dispatch he fears getting hit by pucks and called the equipment change “terrible.” Coming off winning the Stanley Cup with Washington, Braden Holtby is less concerned about bruising and more worried about a significant injury.“Sooner or later someone’s going to get hurt pretty bad,” Holtby said after feeling the sting of a few shots at a morning skate. “You can deal with bumps and bruises and stuff. It’s when you hope someone doesn’t get a broken bone or some sort out of it. If they keep making things like that, they’re going to have to start monitoring the stick technology because guys shoot so hard right now we’ll have no choice but to be bigger.”Whitmore is the man in the middle of it all trying to satisfy the 31 general managers who recommended the change while also working with the Players’ Association , goaltenders and manufacturers to make things right. That’s a continuing process, though the NHL is confident goalies are not in danger because of the rule change.“I’m not throwing these guys out there in harm’s way where they can’t even play,” said Whitmore, who played 155 games over 15 years during his professional career. “It’s going to continue to evolve as we go, but not from the standpoint where we’re worried on a nightly basis about what’s going to happen to a guy.”Remembering previous changes to smaller pads and pants, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist noticed the difference right away with his new chest protector. When it didn’t feel right, he talked to Whitmore and made the necessary adjustments to be compliant and comfortable.“It was tight and hard to move and you got exposed in a couple areas where you had to talk to Kay and make sure it was OK to cover your shoulders,” Lundqvist said. “I just made some adjustments just make sure it was exactly the way I wanted and the league wanted it, so it’s all good now.”Vegas goalie Marc-Andre Fleury added an extra undershirt to provide some more padding, and Holtby is working in a new chest protector after wearing a CCM model since junior hockey. Reimer, who got his new chest protector mid-summer and wanted to make changes, said he ordered a new one weeks ago but won’t be able to receive it until the end of the month because companies are backed up with orders.“What am I supposed to do, play the first month with a chest protector that’s not as protective?” Reimer said. “It’s unfortunate that the whole situation is like this.”The goal was to level the playing field where goalies weren’t wearing oversized chest protectors just to get a competitive advantage. Reimer wants the NHL to allow goalies to go back to last year when he felt they were protected, but Whitmore is putting the onus on companies to adapt and make better products.“We’re not changing it now Youth Jake McCabe Jersey ,” Whitmore said. “We’ve thought long and hard about the shape we wanted guys to look like.”MIGHTY QUINNIn his first season as Rangers coach, David Quinn hasn’t been afraid to send a message to underperforming players of all ages by scratching them. Defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk, Neal Pionk and Adam McQuaid and forwards Vladislav Namestnikov and Pavel Buchnevich have already gotten the healthy-scratch treatment. Shattenkirk had two assists and a shootout goal in his second game back, Pionk responded to his benching with a three-point night and the message seems to be getting through to a young, rebuilding bunch.“Guys have done a good job coming back from it,” Quinn said. “This is all about making them the best player they can possibly be. We all need to be held accountable, and sometimes you need a little bit of a wakeup call. These guys have handled it well.”NO BULLNashville coach Peter Laviolette bet his players that if the Predators swept the Flames and Oilers on their swing through Alberta, he’d wear a full bull mask for his postgame interview. Laviolette made good on that promise Saturday night after backup Juuse Saros shut out Edmonton 3-0 to help Nashville improve to 7-1-0.GAME OF THE WEEKPatrik Laine and the Winnipeg Jets visit Auston Matthews and the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night in a matchup of Canada’s best bets to win the Stanley Cup. ST. LOUIS (AP) — Amid a disappointing showing that fell well short of Stanley Cup expectations, the St. Louis Blues fired coach Mike Yeo a quarter of the way into the season and named Craig Berube as his interim replacement.St. Louis general manager Doug Armstrong announced the change hours after Monday night’s loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the Blues’ third shutout in the last four games. At 7-9-3, the Blues are in last place in the Central Division, and their 17 points rank next-to-last in the NHL, ahead of only Los Angeles.Something had to give for the Blues after they failed to make the playoffs last season, falling one point short when they lost to Colorado in their 82nd game. They lost in the second round under Yeo in 2017 Jason Pominville Jersey Kids , after he was a midseason replacement for fired coach Ken Hitchcock.After no coaches were fired last season, the 45-year-old Yeo is the third NHL coach to lose his job this month, following the Kings’ John Stevens and the Blackhawks’ Joel Quenneville. Yeo went 73-49-11 in parts of three seasons with the Blues, with one playoff series victory.Berube had been an associate coach on Yeo’s staff since the summer of 2017. Before that, he was coach of the Blues’ AHL affiliate and has NHL head-coaching experience from parts of two seasons with Philadelphia.The 52-year-old Berube is a midseason replacement for the second time, after replacing Peter Laviolette with the Flyers three games into the 2013-14 season. Berube played 1,054 NHL games and racked up 159 points and 3,149 penalty minutes.Yeo joined the Blues as an assistant in 2016 after five seasons with Minnesota. The Wild made the playoffs in three of Yeo’s four full seasons, and he was fired 55 games into 2015-16.The Blues came into the season with championship aspirations after acquiring center Ryan O’Reilly in a trade from Buffalo and signing forwards Tyler Bozak, Patrick Maroon and David Perron. Yeo was considered to be on the hot seat, and two consecutive losses led to his dismissal.Following the late-night announcement, the team called a news conference for Tuesday morning with Armstrong and Berube.

On the eve of free agency Andrew Shaw Jersey , John Tavares is leaving the NHL guessing about his destination.With less than 12 hours until the market opens, the elite center had not chosen between six suitors, with the San Jose Sharks, hometown Toronto Maple Leafs and incumbent New York Islanders considered the most likely options. Returning to the Islanders looks less likely now after the midnight deadline passed for Tavares to get an eight-year contract from his current team.The Tavares sweepstakes dragging on into Sunday seems to favor San Jose and Toronto, either of which could sign the 27-year-old to a seven-year deal worth $70 million or more. He met this week with the Sharks, Maple Leafs, Islanders, Boston Bruins, Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning, and his decision could drastically affect the plans of those teams and others.”I think other teams have admitted, we would have to make moves (to clear salary-cap space),” Bruins general manager Don Sweeny told reporters in Boston on Friday. ”Pretty confident we’d be able to do that.”As hockey waited for the Tavares watch to end , several teams made moves Saturday ahead of the frenzy.The Sharks agreed to a $64 million, eight-year extension with forward Logan Couture, according to a person familiar with the contract who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been announced. It can’t become official until after noon Sunday because it doesn’t begin until the 2019-20 season – the same as long-term deals the Los Angeles Kings have with Drew Doughty and Arizona Coyotes have with Oliver Ekman-Larsson and Niklas Hjalmarsson.Detroit got its own defenseman under contract for the next two seasons by agreeing to deal with Mike Green that pays him $5,375,000 annually. Signing Green could be just the start of the action for the Red Wings, who have been linked to unrestricted free agent goaltender Jonathan Bernier and winger Thomas Vanek.New Jersey also shored up its goaltending situation by re-signing Eddie Lack to a $650,000, one-year deal. The Devils also have Cory Schneider and Keith Kinkaid, who split time last season and in the playoffs.A person with direct knowledge of discussions said the Buffalo Sabres are expected to sign goalie Carter Hutton, who had been the St. Louis Blues’ backup to Jake Allen. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because agreements cannot be announced until the signing period begins.Hutton and others seem to already be ticketed for certain places, but many big-name players are still up for grabs.Maple Leafs winger James van Riemsdyk, who tied Tavares with 36 goals last season Authentic Artturi Lehkonen Jersey , has been drawing significant interest and, at 29, could easily command a seven-year contract at a substantial raise over his previous $4.25 million salary. The Western Conference champion Vegas Golden Knights have cap space but might lose wingers David Perron and James Neal, who combined for 110 points last season.The Winnipeg Jets are doing their best to try to bring back center Paul Stastny after he was so instrumental in their playoff run. They cleared about $5.5 million in cap space by trading goaltender Steve Mason and Finnish forward Joel Armia to Montreal on Saturday but may still need more room to bring back the 32-year-old.The Canadiens are set to buy out Mason, putting him on unconditional waivers as the Minnesota Wild did with forward Tyler Ennis to clear cap space.Stastny fit in seamlessly after Winnipeg acquired him from St. Louis at the trade deadline but also might be better served waiting to see what Tavares does. Teams looking for a center who don’t land Tavares will look to Stastny and Toronto’s Tyler Bozak and could look into a trade for Buffalo’s Ryan O’Reilly, who is signed for the next five years and owed a $7.5 million bonus Sunday.—AP Sports Writer Josh Dubow in San Jose, California, contributed to this report. NEW YORK (AP) — Two of the New York Rangers‘ younger players helped veteran goalie Henrik Lundqvist get a big milestone win.Filip Chytil and Brett Howden scored to back Lundqvist’s 437th career win as the Rangers beat the Vancouver Canucks 2-1 Monday night. Lundqvist tied Jacques Plante for seventh place on the NHL’s all-time list.“The guy knows how to win hockey games,” alternate captain Marc Staal said of the 36-year-old Lundqvist. “You have to be an elite competitor and elite goaltender to have that many wins, it’s that simple. He is brought that his entire time here.”The Rangers improved to 6-0-1 in their last seven, getting their longest points streak since an 11-0-2 run Oct. 18 to Nov. 15, 2015.Lundqvist stopped 25 shots Carey Price Jersey , including two big saves on Vancouver’s rookie sensation Elias Pettersson in the closing seconds to preserve the win.“We have to keep same mindset as when we started the season,” Lundqvist said. “A lot of teams in the league in the same boat, will come down to how hard you want to work. It’s about being consistent — you can beat any team in the league”Nikolay Goldobin scored and Jacob Markstrom made 25 saves for the Canucks, who snapped a six-game point streak (4-0-2).The 19-year-old Chytil tied the score 1-1 with 7:18 left in the second on a rebound from the left side for his first of the season. After earning a spot on the roster out of training camp, he struggled to find the back of the net in the first 18 games. Rangers coach David Quinn said earlier in the day he had not lost faith in the talented teenager and was rewarded for his patience. Chris Kreider and Neal Pionk assisted on the play.The 20-year Howden got the game-winner with 8:41 left in the third when he snapped a wrist shot past Markstrom. Jimmy Vesey and Jesper Fast assisted on the play. Howden missed one game earlier in November for precautionary reasons after a scary collision with the end boards against Buffalo.“You can play your young players and win. That’s what we have done so far,” Quinn said after the victory. “We want to win right now. That was our goal from day one and that is our goal right now.”It was the first time two players 20-years-old or younger scored for the Rangers since Daniel Goneau and Christian Dube did it in October 1996.Goldobin gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead at 3:16 of the second. Shortly after exiting the penalty box, Goldobin picked up a loose puck in the neutral zone and started an odd-man rush for Vancouver. The Russian winger kept it himself and wired a wrister into the top corner. Tyler Motte and Ben Hutton assisted on the play.The Canucks thought they doubled their advantage less than a minute later when Michael Del Zotto’s shot hit both posts and the cross bar. The referees initially called the play a good goal on the ice but it was later overturned after a video review.“It’s tough right now, but I thought we played a really good road game,” Markstrom said. “We created a lot of chances and could’ve scored a lot of goals. We have to keep working. The good thing with this league is that there’s a game tomorrow.”NOTES: Rangers F Pavel Buchnevich suffered a broken thumb Saturday against the Columbus Blue Jackets and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks. … The Rangers’ Cody McLeod fought the Canucks’ Darren Archibald midway through the second period. … New York D Brendan Smith was scratched for the second consecutive game. .

LAS VEGAS (AP) Logan Couture’s second goal of the game Semyon Varlamov Jersey , on the power play at 5:13 of the second overtime, lifted the San Jose Sharks to a 4-3 victory over the Vegas Golden Knights on Saturday night, tying their Western Conference semifinal series at one game apiece.The Golden Knights, who lost for the first time in six playoff games, thought they won in the first overtime when Jonathan Marchessault’s backhand sailed past Jones with 3:02 left, but officials ruled there was goaltender interference when Marchessault ran into Jones’ blocker and spun him around before his shot.Brent Burns also scored two goals and Martin Jones stopped 26 shots for San Jose, which was playing without suspended forward Evander Kane.William Karlsson scored twice, while Nate Schmidt got his first of the postseason to tie the score at 3-3 with 6 1/2 minutes left in the third period. Marc-Andre Fleury finished with 43 saves.Game 3 is Monday night at San Jose.BRUINS 6, LIGHTNING 2TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Rick Nash and Patrice Bergeron each scored twice to lead Boston past Tampa Bay in Game 1 of their Eastern Conference semifinal series.Brad Marchand had a goal and two assists, David Pastrnak finished with four assists and Bergeron also had one to give their line 10 points in a dominating performance.Tuukka Rask stopped 34 shots for the Bruins Sergei Boikov Jersey , who finished one point behind Tampa Bay for the Atlantic Division title, as well as the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.Dan Girardi and Mikhail Sergachev scored for the Lightning, who trailed 3-2 entering the third period. Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with 18 saves.Game 2 is Monday night at Amalie Arena.— ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) Next season’s defending champion Washington Capitals will look a lot like the group that won the Stanley Cup last month.They re-signed defensemen John Carlson and Michal Kempny and forward Devante Smith-Pelly and have so far only lost fourth-line center Jay Beagle and backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer from their title-winning roster.Yet the few changes could be substantial for the Capitals, most notably new coach Todd Reirden taking over for Barry Trotz with a roster that is so similar that the expectation will be another deep playoff run.”There’s going to be many things that stay the same, but there’s gonna be some things that I think I have to be cognizant of,” Reirden said as he was introduced Tuesday. ”I want to create an environment where players are going to continue to be challenged with new ideas and new ways to improve their games.”Based on the continuity of promoting a four-year assistant, general manager Brian MacLellan and Reirden expect this to be a ”seamless transition.” Set aside the awkward circumstances of Trotz’s departure and the Capitals had been grooming Reirden for a head coaching job somewhere in the NHL for some time now.Reirden was the finalist for Calgary’s job two years ago and in retrospect is glad that didn’t work out. His first NHL head coaching job happens to be this one, as just the fourth coach in the past 30 years to assume control of a Cup champion.With the vast majority of the roster back, Alex Ovechkin coming off a playoff MVP performance and almost the entire defense he helped develop back to try to repeat, the pressure is on.”Todd’s at that point in his career where he’s earned a head coaching job Youth Jake McCabe Jersey ,” MacLellan said. ”He’s put in all the work. He’s got all the experience. It’s just a matter of seeing him take control. I have all the faith in the world that he can accomplish it. He’s just ready to do it right now.”Beagle signed a four-year, $12 million contract with the Canucks, and the Capitals traded Grubauer and defenseman Brooks Orpik to the Avalanche to clear the cap space they needed to ink Carlson to a $64 million, eight-year deal. Orpik could still return after Colorado bought him out and made him a free agent, which could mean 18 of 19 players who skated in the Cup-winning Game 5 against Vegas are on the roster to begin next season.”It’s one of those offseasons where you’re not trying to make a change because you like what you have culturally,” MacLellan said. ”This group really seems to like playing together and there’s a good chemistry there, so I think it was our decision to try to (keep) as much as we could.”That did not extend to Trotz, who wanted to be paid closer to market value for a Cup-winning coach than the automatic extension that kicked in with a small raise from his previous salary. MacLellan believes Reirden can build on what Trotz started, and the 47-year-old new Capitals coach is confident in his abilities because of how much responsibility he had the past two seasons as associate coach.”We all had input in it in what our decisions were made,” Reirden said. ”I feel strongly about the direction of our team and the style that we played during the year that it wasn’t necessarily just one person’s idea, but it was our whole staff that had large input into how our team was going to play.”The Capitals will need one assistant coach to replace Trotz choice Lane Lambert Jason Pominville Jersey Kids , but will keep the rest of the staff intact. They’ll look to Travis Boyd or recently signed Nic Dowd to replace Beagle. And if they can’t bring back Orpik, they’ll likely find a veteran defenseman to play on the third pair.That’s about all that’s different when the Stanley Cup banner is raised to the rafters Oct. 3, which is no accident.”We’re always looking to improve certain areas,” MacLellan said. ”We always look at, `We’ve got a hole here. We need to fix that.’ Or, `This is a way we can get to that next level.’ We’ve always had that type of attitude. This year, it’s trying to maintain what we had.”—

DETROIT (AP) Chris Ilitch is the first to admit that it hasn’t been business as usual for the Detroit Red Wings the past couple of seasons Authentic Mikael Backlund Jersey , but he’s confident the man to bring them back to the glory days is the man they currently have in charge.The Red Wings’ governor announced Saturday the club had agreed to a new two-year contract with general manager Ken Holland.”Around these parts, we’re used to be being in the playoffs, we’re used to competing for Stanley Cups, and believe me Mike Smith Jersey , that’s where we all want to be,” Ilitch said. ”That’s a lot of fun. To get back there, it’s a process. We’ve done it before and we’re going to do it again.”We think Ken is the right guy to lead that for our organization, so we’re thrilled to have him back.”Detroit’s 25-year run of consecutive postseason appearances came to an end in 2015-16 and the Red Wings have missed the playoffs the past two seasons. They entered their final game of the season on Saturday against the New York Islanders 27th overall in the NHL with a 30-39-12 record.Still Sean Monahan Jersey , Ilitch pointed to Holland’s performance as both a scout and the team’s director of scouting as the Red Wings assembled the talent pool that won four Stanley Cups between 1997-2008 as an indication that Holland can mastermind the current rebuild.”Ken Holland has had the experience of seeing a Detroit Red Wings team in the 1980s build from the ground all the way up to the Stanley Cup champion,” Ilitch said. ”That’s the blueprint for our future and Ken knows that.”Holland has traded to restructure the team and holds an NHL-high 11 picks in the upcoming entry draft.”I understand there’s a big challenge ahead here going forward,” Holland said. ”I look forward to the challenge of rebuilding the Detroit Red Wings.”Holland indicated that he would address the future of coach Jeff Blashill on Tuesday when the Wings have scheduled their locker cleanout day. OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) Guy Boucher will be back behind the Ottawa Senators bench next season TJ Brodie Jersey , and so will his entire staff.Speaking on an Ottawa sports radio station, Senators general manager Pierre Dorion confirmed that Boucher and his assistants will return despite the club’s second-to-last place finish in 2017-18.Dorion said Boucher would run the power play, while assistants Rob Cookson and Marc Crawford will join Boucher behind the bench.Boucher’s future was in doubt after the Senators struggled to a 28-43-11 record last season, one year removed from making the Eastern Conference final.Special teams were a particular concern for the Senators. Ottawa finished 27th in the 31-team league with a power play that converted on just 16.6 percent of chances Womens Travis Hamonic Jersey , and the penalty-kill rate of 76.2 percent was 26th.With the coaching situation stabilized, the Senators can turn their attention toward trying to sign captain Erik Karlsson to an extension.The superstar defenseman becomes an unrestricted free agent after next season.—

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Buffalo Sabres have suspended forward Patrick Berglund indefinitely for failing to report to the team.The Sabres announced the suspension Saturday Tage Thompson Jersey Womens , hours before facing the defending Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals. Berglund missed the past two games with what coach Phil Housley initially called an illness.“From my knowledge talking to the medical staff, he was ill, so we handled it that way,” Housley said. “Obviously it developed into something different, and (general manager Jason Botterill) and the management are handling that.”The 30-year-old Swede has two goals and two assists in 23 games this season. He was a healthy scratch earlier this season and missed five games with an upper-body injury.Asked about Berglund not being “all in” with the rest of the team, Housley declined comment. The second-year coach preferred to talk about the players still with the Sabres.“We’re going to focus on the guys in that locker room,” Housley said. “We do have some depth. … We feel really good about our club.”An email sent to Berglund’s agent, Peter Wallen, was not immediately returned.Buffalo acquired Berglund from St. Louis in the offseason as part of a four-player trade that sent center Ryan O’Reilly to the Blues. Berglund, who played the first 10 seasons of his career with St. Louis Dalton Prout Jersey Womens , has three years remaining on his contract at a salary-cap hit of $3.85 million.Berglund has 170 goals and 156 assists for 326 points in 717 regular-season games with the Blues and Sabres. TORONTO — The Montreal Canadiens visit the Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday night as two long-time rivals open the season with widely different expectations.After signing free agent center John Tavares in the offseason to augment an already promising group of young players led by center Auston Matthews, the Maple Leafs are shooting for the Stanley Cup this season. Tavares had a fine preseason, working well with right winger Mitch Marner.The Canadiens, however, are trying to climb back to respectability after a dismal 2017-18 season.Article continues below ...The Maple Leafs have shown signs during the past two seasons that they are growing into Cup contenders, but they have lost in the playoffs in the first round twice in a row.And with a pair of first-round losses in the past two Stanley Cup playoffs relatively fresh, the Leafs collectively shake their heads at the idea a similar fate could be awaiting them next April.“We’ve been there, done that,” defenseman Morgan Rielly said. “We have done the thing where we make the playoffs and lose in the first round. It’s not very fun and I think we’re tired of that. The goal is to start with a good couple of months, build toward a playoff push Elias Lindholm Jersey Womens , make the playoffs and go from there. You have to take it one step at a time, but when you look at the big picture, you want to play longer and have a shorter summer than we did in the last two years.”The Canadiens made two big offseason deals, sending Alex Galchenyuk to the Arizona Coyotes and former captain Mac Pacioretty to the Vegas Golden Knights. In return, the Habs received Max Domi from Arizona and Tomas Tatar, a second-round draft pick and good prospect Nick Suzuki from Vegas.The Canadiens also named defenseman Shea Weber as the 30th captain in the team’s storied history Monday, replacing Pacioretty. “I don’t know how many times you can say an honor, because you look at the guys (on the walls) in our dressing room, guys that have worn this letter in this organization’s history, it’s special Alan Quine Jersey Womens ,” said Weber, 33, who was acquired from the Nashville Predators two years ago in exchange for P.K. Subban. Weber underwent offseason knee surgery and is not expected to be return to competition until mid-December, which makes it even important that goaltender Carey Price regains his old magic.Habs general manager Marc Bergevin said the choice for captain was obvious. “The players all feel the same way, we all feel the same way that Shea is the right guy to lead this team and we didn’t want to wait,” he said. “Training camp was over, season starts on Wednesday and (Monday) was the perfect day.”In another development, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, the third overall pick in the draft this past June, has earned a roster spot to open the season. The 18-year-old is the youngest Canadiens player since Mario Tremblay broke in shortly after his 18th birthday in 1974.As the opener drew closer Petr Mrazek Jersey Womens , the Maple Leafs were still waiting to sign their restricted free agent William Nylander.Meanwhile, the Leafs traded defenseman Connor Carrick to the Dallas Stars for a seventh-round draft choice Monday and put goaltenders Curtis McElhinney and Calvin Pickard on waivers. Both were claimed, which means Garret Sparks, the American Hockey League goaltender of the year last season with the Toronto Marlies, will begin the season as the backup for Frederik Andersen.“We’re going to be ready to go, for sure,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said. “In the NHL, there is nothing between all of us. Every night you play it’s a one-goal game and it’s a battle. And yet the good teams win more of those one-goal games and at the end, it seems like you won every night easy. But you didn’t. You scratched and clawed your way through the year. That’s just what you do.”

ANAHEIM Arizona Coyotes T-Shirts Womens , Calif. (AP) — After playing from behind for much of this season, the Philadelphia Flyers weren’t fazed when Anaheim’s Pontus Aberg tied Tuesday night’s game late in the third period.Nolan Patrick scored 21 seconds later, and the Flyers beat the Ducks 3-2 to snap a three-game losing streak.“We needed to change the direction of how we have been playing, tonight is a real good start to that,” said Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott, who made 23 saves. “We didn’t take our foot off the gas. We kept pressing and we responded really well after they scored the power-play goal. They couldn’t even announce it by the time we put it back in their net.”Oskar Lindblom had possession of the puck behind the net and found a wide-open Patrick, who buried it past Ryan Miller with 1:51 remaining for his third goal of the season.It marks the first time since Feb. 2, 2008 the Flyers have defeated the Ducks in regulation. Anaheim was on an 11-0-3 roll against Philadelphia.“Every time we play here, it is a little chippy and they are fun games. It was pretty open out there today but I was happy when Patrick scored,” said Claude Giroux, who had two assists.Aberg scored both goals for the Ducks, who are winless in their last six games. The left wing is the first Anaheim player since Daniel Winnik (Jan. 19-21 Arizona Coyotes Hoodies Womens , 2013) to record consecutive multigoal games. Aberg has already matched his four goals from last season.Sean Couturier and Ivan Provorov scored the Flyers’ other goals. Miller made 33 saves and Ryan Getzlaf had an assist to extend his point streak to three games.“We were trying to make plays in cute areas. They didn’t really have a complicated game plan,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. “They were forcing us to dump the puck. We got stubborn and stopped doing that.”The Flyers scored the first goal for only the second time this season. Philadelphia was on the power play less than three minutes into the game when Couturier positioned himself at the front of the net and redirected Giroux’s shot past Miller for his fourth goal of the season. It was only the second power-play goal for the Flyers in their last 21 chances.“When you score first you get control of the game a little bit more. You are a little bit more confident, too,” Giroux said.Aberg tied it less than two minutes into the second when he fired a shot from the right faceoff circle that Elliott was unable to stop with his glove.The Flyers regained the lead seven minutes later when Giroux carried the puck into the Ducks’ zone and fired a shot toward the net, where it was redirected by Provorov for his first goal of the year.Anaheim appeared to send it to overtime with a power-play goal late in the third when Aberg screened Elliott in front of the Flyers’ goal and was able to redirect Cam Fowler’s shot into the net. But Patrick’s goal dropped the Ducks to 0-2 on their four-game homestand.“It’s brutal.

(AP) The San Jose Sharks ended their longest homestand of the season on a high note and now look to carry that forward on the road as they seek to solidify a playoff berth.Eric Fehr scored his first goal with San Jose and the Sharks closed a six-game homestand by handing the Detroit Red Wings their seventh straight loss, 5-3 on Monday night.”We understood that if we win this game it would be a pretty successful homestand,” said captain Joe Pavelski Arizona Coyotes Hats Womens , who had two assists. ”That’s what we did. Now we can leave with a little momentum and take this game on the road.”Joonas Donskoi, Kevin Labanc and Timo Meier also scored to help the Sharks win for the fourth time on the homestand and remain in second place in the Pacific Division with a two-point lead over Los Angeles. Chris Tierney added an empty-net goal to seal it.Martin Jones made 23 saves for the Sharks, who start a three-game Canadian road trip on Wednesday in Edmonton.”This was an important win for us,” coach Peter DeBoer said. ”Obviously we got a tough schedule coming up. We go on the road and some tough buildings. It was important we got the win tonight. We did enough to get the win. It wasn’t a textbook game, but we did a lot of good stuff.”Henrik Zetterberg, Trevor Daley and Gustav Nyquist scored for the Red Wings, who matched their longest losing streak of the season. Jimmy Howard stopped 29 shots.”We have to limit our mistakes,” Howard said. ”If we’re going to be successful out there we can’t make the mistakes that we do because they kill us.”Fehr gave the Sharks the lead for good during a long delayed penalty in the first period. With San Jose having the extra attacker, Fehr got in front of the net, where he deflected Brenden Dillon’s point shot past Howard for his first goal in eight games with the Sharks since being acquired from Toronto last month.The Sharks made it 3-1 early in the second when Labanc poked in a rebound after Howard stopped Tierney on a breakaway.The Red Wings made it a one-goal game later in the second when Tyler Bertuzzi deflected a shot off the post and Nyquist knocked it in off the goal line.Detroit appeared to get the equalizer on the power play later in the second but Anthony Mantha’s goal was immediately waved off because he redirected it into the net with his skate.The teams then traded goals early in the third, with Meier scoring on the power play when he deflected a shot from Mikkel Boedker and Zetterberg answering for Detroit off a nice pass from Nyquist.That goal moved Zetterberg into sole possession of fifth place for the Red Wings with his 336th, breaking a tie with Ted Lindsay.”Ted means a lot to me Custom Arizona Coyotes Jerseys , so passing him and doing it in this building too where I played my first NHL game is really special,” Zetterberg said.The Sharks looked flat at the start in a game that meant much more to them than the Red Wings, who are 15 points out of playoff position. But Detroit took seven of the first eight shots on goal and led 1-0 after Daley took a pass from Zetterberg in the slot and beat Jones.The momentum shifted after San Jose killed a penalty and the Sharks took the lead with a pair in a span of less than two minutes. The first came off the rush, when Evander Kane took a cross-ice pass from Pavelski and slid it back across the crease to Donskoi, who tapped it into the open net for his 14th goal.”There was some of the talk when it happened of `Get this kill and get a little momentum going,”’ Pavelski said. ”The game wasn’t going well at that point so it was huge for us to come back.”Fehr added his goal 1:44 later for his first since Jan. 18, 2017, for Pittsburgh against Montreal.NOTES: Bertuzzi had three assists. … The Sharks allowed the first goal in five of six games on the homestand.UP NEXTRed Wings: Visit the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday.Sharks: Visit the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday.—

COLUMBUS Womens Zach Hyman Jersey , Ohio (AP) Alex Ovechkin scored twice and Braden Holtby had 35 saves as the Washington Capitals advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals with a 6-3 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets in Game 6 on Monday night.The Capitals will next face Pittsburgh in the second round of the playoffs for a third straight year. The Penguins won each of the last two years on the way to winning consecutive Stanley Cup championships..Chandler Stephenson had a goal and an assist, and Dimitry Orlov, Devante Smith-Pelly and Lars Eller also tallied for Washington.Nick Foligno had two goals, Pierre-Luc Dubois also scored and Sergei Bobrovsky finished with 22 saves for the Blue Jackets, who lost in the first round of the playoffs for the second consecutive season and fourth time overall. They remain the only active NHL franchise never to win a playoff series.Washington won four straight games after going down 2-0 at home with both games decided in overtime.MAPLE LEAFS 3, BRUINS 1TORONTO (AP) – Frederik Andersen stopped 32 shots to help Toronto force a decisive Game 7 in the first-round series.William Nylander Bo Horvat Jersey , Mitch Marner and Tomas Plekanec scored for the Maple Leafs, who trailed the series 3-1 before winning two straight. They also trailed 1-0 early in the second period of this one. Nikita Zaitsev added two assists, and Marner and Plekanec each had one.Jake DeBrusk scored for the Bruins, and Tuukka Rask – pulled in Game 5 at home, finished with 27 saves.Game 7 is Wednesday night in Boston with the winner advancing to face Tampa Bay in the Eastern Conference semifinals..There was a moment of silence before the opening faceoff at Air Canada Centre to honor the 10 people killed Monday when a van mounted a sidewalk in Toronto’s north end and struck multiple pedestrians. Fifteen others were injured. RALEIGH, N.C. — Something good could be brewing for the Carolina Hurricanes even though it took time for it to materialize during a lengthy stretch of home games.“The bounces have started going our way a little bit Youth Brandon Sutter Jersey ,” Carolina coach Rod Brind’Amour said.Carolina takes on the visiting Florida Panthers on Friday night at PNC Arena.Article continues below ...The Hurricanes are 3-1-1 with one game to go in a six-game homestand. The Hurricanes will go for their first three-game winning streak since the opening week-plus of the season.The Panthers didn’t enjoy quite the boost of momentum heading to the Thanksgiving holiday.Florida gave up a season-high number of goals in Wednesday night’s 7-3 loss at Tampa Bay. The Panthers are 2-3 with one game remaining on a six-game road swing.“We have to find a way,” Florida coach Bob Boughner said, shying away from excuses.Panthers left winger Mike Hoffman stretched his points streak to 17 games, but that was merely a highlight without much juice from the team perspective.“When we’re not on top of our game … you’ll have outcomes like that,” Hoffman said. Meanwhile, by defeating the Toronto Maple Leafs 5-2 on Wednesday night Brendan Leipsic Jersey Kids , it was clearly a lift that might have an impact that extends beyond a single game for the Hurricanes.“We wanted to make a statement that we could play with any team,” said left winger Micheal Ferland, who leads Carolina with 11 goals.The Hurricanes outshot the Maple Leafs 29-11 in the first period, marking the most single-period shots on goal by Carolina in team history (since relocation to North Carolina more than 20 years ago). The Hurricanes’ 29 shots are also the most in a first period in the NHL since 1997-98.That shot load eventually paid off.“Everybody was on fire there,” right winger Andrei Svechnikov said. “… That’s why we won, because we shot everything on the net.”Carolina’s special teams have been scrutinized so far this season. There are reasons for encouragement in that area with its first power-play goal in a three-game stretch in the latest outing. Plus , the penalty-killing was spotless for the second game in a row.The Panthers liked some of their specials teams work in the Tampa Bay game. That might be something for them to build off.“We made some adjustments and we were good after that,” Boughner, a former Carolina player, said of one of the bright spots.Justin Williams scored his 100th career Hurricanes goal Wednesday, giving him goals in consecutive games. He became the ninth player in NHL history to score at least 100 goals and win the Stanley Cup with multiple franchises. Williams has 100 goals in 368 games with Carolina and recorded 103 goals in 427 games for the Los Angeles Kings.The other good news for the Hurricanes was having center Victor Rask in the lineup for the first time this season Wednesday night. He had been out since a preseason off-ice finger injury.“He didn’t play much, but the shifts he had were productive ,” Brind’Amour said. “I think we’ll still probably ease him in a little bit. He’s probably right where he needs to be. There’s no real rush.”

WASHINGTON (AP) — Remembering recent failures when it comes to extending winning streaks and fearing the defending Stanley Cup champions turned out to be a perfect recipe for the Dallas Stars.Dallas started fast with two goals 10 seconds apart and finished strong in a 4-3 overtime victory over the Washington Capitals on Saturday night Melker Karlsson Jersey , giving the Stars their first three-game winning streak of the season. Jason Dickinson scored 3:17 into overtime to keep Dallas rolling under first-year coach Jim Montgomery.“There’s a lot of belief right now,” Montgomery said. “I don’t see any complacency in our group. I just see a determination and a focus that I haven’t seen before. That’s the exciting part.”The excitement is building for the Stars, who are starting to develop some consistency. Jason Spezza scored on a breakaway and Tyler Pitlick forced a turnover for an unassisted goal 10 seconds later as Dallas jumped out to a 2-0 lead that showed players they could hang with the Capitals.“When you come in here, there’s a little bit of fear of knowing that they can run you out of the rink if you’re not ready to go off the hop,” Spezza said. “You can’t take these guys lightly, and I thought we learned a lesson from some of the other games we played on the road.”In the process, the Stars also learned about rebounding from mistakes and moving forward after blowing a lead. Goaltender Ben Bishop allowed soft goals from sharp angles to Nicklas Backstrom and Evgeny Kuznetsov, Dallas’ defensive structure was lacking and yet it was able to get to overtime.Playing 3-on-3 in OT, Dallas outshot Washington 6-1. Capitals goalie Braden Holtby stopped Tyler Seguin on a penalty shot 59 seconds in, but Dickinson beat him on a deflection for his third of the season.“We’ll take it,” said Bishop, who stopped 29 shots. “They’re not always going to be Picassos. Sometimes you’re going to have to grind. Last game we had to hold on at the end. This one we had to find a way to come back and get that one in overtime. Finding different ways to win, that’s the big thing. It doesn’t matter how, just as long as you get it.”It also was a struggle for the Capitals, who turned the puck over on all three Stars goals in regulation and still had a chance after Kuznetsov tied it on the power play with 12:03 remaining in the third period. Brett Connolly also scored for Washington, but ill-timed turnovers in the wrong places led to a second consecutive defeat.“Every team comes fast like that,” said Holtby Tyler Ennis Jersey Womens , who gave the puck away to Pitlick for his goal. “It’s not a surprise. You just have to be prepared for it and have a plan and execute. A couple plays, we didn’t do that.”While the Capitals continue to search for the kind of 60-minute effort that defined their playoff run last spring, the Stars are feeling good in the middle of a long Eastern Conference road trip. Montgomery set the goal of three wins in six games, and his team is already there with two left before returning home.“Everyone’s contributing,” Montgomery said. “You’re together and it’s a good feeling and everyone is enjoying being around each other.”NOTES: Holtby finished with 32 saves plus his stop on Seguin on the penalty shot in overtime. … Captain Jamie Benn also scored for Dallas, his sixth goal of the season. … Capitals D Brooks Orpik missed his second consecutive game with a lower-body injury. He did not practice all week. … Stars D Marc Methot and F Alexander Radulov were out with lower-body injuries. Montgomery said Radulov returned to Dallas for treatment and will miss the final two games of the trip. … Montgomery said D Connor Carrick (foot) should be able to get back into skates soon.UP NEXTStars: At Boston on Monday in the fifth stop on their six-game trip.Capitals: Continue a five-game homestand against Connor McDavid and the Edmonton Oilers on Monday. BOSTON — The already jumbled Boston Bruins goaltending picture took a strange twist on Friday.Tuukka Rask, whose ineffectiveness led to free agent signee Jaroslav Halak jumping ahead of him on the depth chart, left the team after both goalies played poorly in Thursday night’s 8-5 loss to the Vancouver Canucks at TD Garden.The Bruins issued a one-line press release that read “Effective today, Boston Bruins goaltender Tuukka Rask has been granted a leave of absence relating to a personal matter.”Article continues below ...That took Rask away for a weekend that has the Bruins hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs in an Original Six game Saturday night and then the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday night.General manager Don Sweeney said Rask was not dealing with an injury issue — and that he expected the absence to be one of short duration.“Tuukka is going to take a few days to address a personal matter,” Sweeney said. “It is not health related. So I think it’s important for everybody to respect his privacy and let him deal with it for the next few days.”Practice was delayed 20 minutes Friday as coach Bruce Cassidy met with team leaders Zdeno Chara and Patrice Bergeron.“I’m not going into any details, It’s a personal issue,” Bergeron said. “Right here we’re behind him and supporting him 100 percent. All I can say is that he’s a great friend and we’re all here for him.”Jalak, chased from Thursday’s night, is likely to start both weekend games, with coach Bruce Cassidy confirming Halak will play Saturday against the dangerous Leafs.Speaking of Toronto, Fredrik Andersen played for the Leafs in a home game against the New Jersey Devils on Friday night, making 38 saves in a 6-1 win on Hall of Fame Night. Coach Mike Babcock Tim Heed Jersey , whose team has won three straight to go to 11-5-0, said it will be Garret Sparks in goal in Boston.The goalie announcement came as a bit of a surprise since Andersen owns a 10-1 record, a 2.09 goals-against average and .935 save percentage in his regular-season career against the Bruins. However, he was 3-3 against Boston in last year’s playoff series, yielding six goals in the deciding seventh game. He had a 3.76 goals-against average and .896 save percentage in the series.The Bruins went 4-2-0 against the Leafs last season at TD Garden counting the playoffs.On Thursday night, Boston broke out of its recent scoring slump but fell to 8-5-2, including 4-4-2 in the last 10 games.“Goaltending, obviously, neither guy was on their game, so that’s a problem,” Boston coach Bruce Cassidy said. “It’s going to happen. Defense, I think it was as much turnovers worked against us once we started to get behind.”Rask, who allowed the last three goals, quipped, “I was just trying to keep it under 10 — that’s what I was worried about. But yeah, you know … a loss is a loss, it doesn’t really matter at the end of the day.“It was kind of a crazy game both ways. You know Alex Pietrangelo Jersey Kids , a lot of goals scored and there was — at the end it looked like everyone was napping in the crowd. It was just one of those games where there wasn’t a whole lot of action on either end — low shots and you know all of a sudden it’s 5-3, 8-5, whatever. So, yeah, weird game, but that’s entertainment and we’re just providing it.”Halak had been leading the NHL in goals-against average and save percentage, falling behind Pekka Rinne in both with Thursday night’s performance. He is 4-1-2 with a 1.96 goals against and .936 save percentage — and is 8-3-4 with 2.94 goals-against average and .893 save percentage lifetime against the Leafs.The Bruins confirmed Friday that Charlie McAvoy has been out with a concussion. He hasn’t played since Oct. 18 and had been listed as having an upper-body injury.Saturday marks the first appearance in a Toronto uniform of John Tavares, who signed a huge free agent contract with the Maple Leafs. The Bruins were one of the teams reportedly in the hunt.Team president Cam Neely, Sweeney and Cassidy traveled to Los Angeles and met Tavares and his agent — offering a seven-year deal.After signing, Tavares, who scored his ninth goal of the season Friday, tweeted, “It’s time to live my childhood dream here in Toronto.”He tweeted a picture of himself as a kid in his bed, which was outfitted entirely in Maple Leafs bedding. But you get the feeling the Boston fans don’t care about that and will let him hear it Saturday night.Toronto’s Patrick Marleau joined former teammate Joe Thornton as the only active players with 600 assists by picking up a helper Friday night.The Bruins recalled Jakob Forsbacka Karlson — the newest JFK in Boston — from Providence on Friday.

Jimmy is a little bit battered, but they are all good and ready to go, the Sharks coach said.Flanagan said he would resist the temptation to rest his representative stars in the lead up to the finals.Not at this stage, we are just planning to rest them from training loads, Flanagan said.Two seasons ago with the roles reversed, the Roosters up the top of the NRL ladder and the Sharks at the bottom, Cronulla produced the upset of the season in defeating the Tricolours.However Robinson said that match had not been used as motivation in the lead-up to Monday.KEY STATS* Cronulla have won the past three straight and four of five against the Roosters and are chasing four successive wins against the Tricolours for the first time.* Since 2007, Cronulla has won 13 of 37 Monday night matches at 35.1 per cent, the second worst winning record behind the Dragons (29 per cent) - away from home they have won four of 20 matches.* The Roosters eight losses by four points or less is the equal second most in premiership history.

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United has made Paul Pogba the worlds most expensive footballer, signing the France midfielder for around 105 million euros ($116 million) four years after releasing him for virtually nothing.Pogba signed a five-year deal with an option for a further year, United announced early Tuesday as new manager Jose Mourinho continues to rebuild a team that is out of the Champions League this season.Pogba was a promising 19-year-old when he left the northern England club after his contract expired, having only made seven appearances as a substitute. He joined Juventus, which reportedly had to pay 800,000 pounds (now around $1 million).Pogba returns as one of the brightest young talents in the game after winning four successive Serie A titles, and for a fee that eclipses the 101 million euros that Real Madrid spent to sign Gareth Bale from Tottenham in 2013.It has always been a club with a special place in my heart and I am really looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho, Pogba said. I feel the time is right to go back to Old Trafford. I always enjoyed playing in front of the fans and cant wait to make my contribution to the team. This is the right club for me to achieve everything I hope to in the game.Juventus has already spent most of the windfall from Pogbas departure, signing Gonzalo Higuain from Italian rival Napoli for 90 million euros ($99 million) earlier this week. That ranked as the third-most expensive transfer in world football -- after Gareth Bales 101 million euro move from Tottenham to Real Madrid in 2013 and Cristiano Ronaldos 94 million euro deal from Manchester United to Real Madrid in 2009.Pogba is Uniteds fourth signing since Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal as manager of the record 20-time English champions.Paul is one of the best players in the world and will be a key part of the United team I want to build here for the future, Mourinho said. He is quick, strong, scores goals and reads the game better than many players much older than he is. At 23, he has the chance to make that position his own here over many years.Defender Eric Bailly, midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan and striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic have already joined to help United return to the Champions League. Nike Air Max Womens Sale White. In the upcoming season, they will have to settle with playing in the Europa League. The same agent, Mino Raiola, represents Ibrahimovic, Mkhitaryan and Pogba.United will be hoping the newcomers, signed at a collective cost of $190 million, can deliver the teams first Premier League trophy since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.Pogbas expensive return to Old Trafford follows a bitter split. Ferguson accused Pogba of not showing United any respect and insisted he was happy to let Pogba leave in 2012, three years after joining from French club Le Havre. For his part, Pogba said he was unhappy at a lack of first-team opportunities under Ferguson, especially when there were injuries in the squad.Although Pogba illuminated the Italian league last season at Juventus, he wasnt as dynamic or influential for France at the European Championship, where his team lost to Portugal in the final.Clubs usually pay record amounts of cash on strikers or attacking midfielders who can guarantee goals and regular game-changing moments. Pogba is different in this respect -- he is an energetic central midfielder with a strong all-round game -- so United has been criticized by some pundits for the fee it is paying.Yet, Mourinho believes Pogba has the potential to be the best player in the world and will be worth the money.He is young and will continue to improve, Mourinho said. He has the chance to be at the heart of this club for the next decade and beyond.It is 20 years since an English club paid a world-record fee, with Blackburn spending 15 million pounds to sign Alan Shearer.The Premier League has finally ended the trend of elite players moving to the two big Spanish clubs, Barcelona and Madrid, or German powerhouse Bayern Munich. And its a statement of intent by United after three years in the wilderness following Fergusons retirement at the start of a new era under Mourinho.---Harris reported from Rio de Janeiro Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike Basketball Jerseys Hockey Jerseys China Supply Baseball Jerseys Football Jerseys Sale Authentic College Jerseys MLB Jerseys China Stitched Soccer Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap Nike Jerseys ' ' '

LAWRENCE, Kan. Air Max 90 2018 Outlet . -- After two years of close calls and dashing dreams against Kansas, the TCU Horned Frogs found themselves in another tight game with the Jayhawks.In the 2014 and 2015 matchups between the two conference foes, the games were decided by 10 points combined.The pattern continued Saturday when TCU (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) outlasted Kansas 24-23.KU has always played us hard, TCU coach Gary Patterson said. ... Im going to do a better job of changing my signals. I thought (defensive coordinator) Coach (Clint) Bowen and the defensive group did a great job. Its been three years hes done a good job on us.One of the things different this time was that TCU wasnt ranked.Kenny Hill completed 17 of 32 passes for 206 yards with one touchdown pass and one rushing score to help TCU squeak out its fourth win of the season.Kansas took a 23-14 lead late in the third quarter on Ryan Willis 21-yard run. But TCU answered early in the fourth.On third-and-12 in its own territory, Hill scrambled and fumbled, but he picked it up and darted around the field for a gain of 34 yards. A facemask penalty added 15 extra yards to put TCU in scoring position.Fortunately for us, we had one of those plays last week against us, Patterson said. Usually, if you win those plays, a lot of times you have the chance to win the ballgame.Two plays later, Hill connected with Jaelan Austin for the touchdown to put the Horned Frogs within 23-21.Kansas had two good scoring chances in the fourth quarter, but went wide right and wide left on two field-goal opportunities.With under four minutes remaining, TCU pieced together a 59-yard drive to tack on a field goal to take the lead at 24-23.Kansas had 81 seconds to make something happen.Willis was sacked on back-to-back plays to put Kansas in a tough spot at third-and-23 on the Kansas 30-yard line. Willis avoided getting sacked for a third straight down and ran the ball out of bounds. On fourth down, Willis threw the ball to Sims, who lateraled it to Bobby Hartzog. Kansas had the first down and was in TCU territory.But Matthew Wyman missed a 54-yard field goal.Sometimes things dont fall your way and you gotta bounce back, Willis said.After losing three games to TCU over the past three seasons by a combined 11 points, itd be easy for minds to wander.Theres a lot of `ifs and `buts but those dont matter, Kansas coach David Beaty said. We have to go to school before next week with more Big 12 play.Kyle Hicks carried the ball 18 times for 104 yards and one touchdown for TCU. Hill threw three interceptions.Willis was 31 of 45 for 348 yards with three interceptions for Kansas, LaQuvionte Gonzalez had 131 yards receiving and Steven Sims added 101 yards receiving.STAT LINESKANSAS: Under Beaty, the Jayhawks are 1-16 and are still awaiting their first conference victory.TCU: The Horned Frogs have scored in 299 consecutive games, the second-longest current streak in the nation, dating to Nov. 16, 1991.TAKEAWAYSTCU: Hills three picks tied a career high.KANSAS: The Jayhawks have 17 turnovers through five games.UP NEXTTCU: After a bye week, the Horned Frogs play at West Virginia on Oct. 22.Kansas: Plays at Baylor next Saturday.

The Pacers (11-12) are returning home from a five-game Western Conference road trip. They finished the trip 2/3 and lost to the leagues worst team, the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night 111-103.We are consistently inconsistent right now, said guard Aaron Brooks. The Pacers have been within two games of .500 the entire season, and have never won or lost more than two straight games. When it looks like theyve turned the corner, they suffer another loss like the one on Friday night.We needed to bring more energy on the defensive end, and that didnt happen, coach Nate McMillan said. We leave off this road trip with just two wins and have a team waiting on us at home. Weve got to get back to it.For the season, the Pacers have been a lot better on their home court. Theyre 8-4 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, compared to 3-8 away from it. Playing a back-to-back after a long Western trip will be no easy task, however, even at home. The Blazers were one of the teams the Pacers just saw on this trip, and Portland scored 131 points in that win over Indiana.Portland (12-12) is coming off a tough loss to Memphis on Thursday night. Late free throws by Toney Douglas put the Blazers away.It was a tough loss, Blazers coach Terry Stotts said. Our offense all game struggled. We struggled to make shots, and we didnt finish around the rim.Both teams are in similar positions in the standings, but in different conferences. There could be a lot of points scored in this game, as the Blazers are second worst in the NBA in defensive rating (109.1 points per 100 possessions given up). The Pacers are 11th worst in the same statistic and, as previously mentioned, will be playing on a back-to-back after a long trip out west.Coming into Friday night, these two teams were 8th and 9th in the league in pace of play.Damian Lillard is a tough matchup for the Pacers. He scored 28 points to go along with 10 assists in their win over Indiana earlier this season. He averaged 29.5 points in the two games against the Pacers last season.Conversely, Pacers star Paul George only averaged 11 points in the two games against the Blazers last season, his lowest average against any team.

They are just 5-8 on the road to start the season.After missing Thursdays game against the Grizzlies, starting small forward Maurice Harkless has been upgraded to probable for Saturdays game ( Hes averaging 13.0 points per game this season and is an important part of the Blazers success.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. Air Force 1 Cheap Outlet . -- When the Jacksonville Jaguars decided to have a Pokemon Go event at EverBank Field on Monday night, they set a modest goal of having 10,000 people trying to catch characters throughout the stadium.They blew past that number long before the two-hour window closed.The team estimates that more than 15,000 people attended, which is well above the 9,651 who registered on the teams website, and has the team saying it created the largest Poke adventure in the United States.We actually knew it would be big, but we didnt know how big it was going to get to, said Steve Ziff, the Jaguars vice president of marketing and digital media. Its pretty amazing.Two of those 15,000-plus people were Bryan and Kari Hall. Bryan Hall, an Army veteran, said hes obsessive about arriving at events early, which is why he and his wife arrived at 2:30 p.m. ET -- 3? hours before the event began.Naturally, they were the first two people in line, which at one point was so long it snaked to the edge of Lot J and back, then wound through several other parking lots and curled around the baseball stadium on the other side of the sports complex.Ive been playing Pokemon since it came out, Bryan Hall, 30, said. That was one of my first games my parents bought, and I still to this day own so many Pokemon games. I still play them.The chance to get a little badge from [the Jaguars for being one of the first 1,000 people in line], it ... felt like it was kind of awesome, the nostalgia from childhood.Before the event began, Bryan Hall said he had captured 109 Pokemon characters and hoped to load up inside the stadium. Kari Hall has been playing the game for only a week but said shes already up to Level 12. She got started because she had never been to the Jaguars stadium, and her husband convinced her that she needed to play to accompany him.Now Ive actually started to get into it, she said.The Halls were the first inside EverBank Field to begin a walking tour that took Pokemon hunters, called trainers, through the stadium and included the pools in the North end zone and the Sky Patio in the South end zone. There were two PokeStops -- which is where trainers can acquire items to help hunt the Pokemon -- and two Pokemon Gyms, which serve as battle locations for team-based matches.And yes, there are teams. Three, to be exact: Team Valor, Team Mystic and Team Instinct. Trainers team up to battle opposing teams. There was a steady stream of trainers moving through the stadium during the two-hour event. There werent any problems, though one trainer walked into a stadium directory sign while hunting. She seemed more concerned with her phone than her head.There was some colorful and interesting language, though. Such as:Wesley, catch this darn thing.Im trying to find a Growlithe.I really hate the outdoors.The idea to have the event at EverBank Field came from Chris Burdett, the Jaguars senior digital media manager, and Spenser Coop, the teams manager of market strategy, in conjunction with corporate partner Fan Duel.The event was such a success that there already is talk of doing it again soon -- and hopefully getting Jaguars owner Shad Khan in on the hunt, too.We couldnt get him to play Pokemon but it might happen if we do it again, Burdett said. Were going to see how this goes, and if it is very successful we might do this again in the next couple months because the games going to keep updating and evolving so we might as well try to capture it again.That would be fine with Mark McEwen and his 6-year-old son, Christopher, who bagged nine Pokemon, including Poliwhirl and Venusaur. Even though they had trouble parking -- some of the lots are unavailable because of construction to the stadiums club seat areas and lounges -- they waited only 20 minutes in line before they were inside the stadium.Its a good bet that theyll be back if the Jaguars do it again.The kids wanted to come, Mark McEwen said. We had a good time. Its a good way to get out of the house instead of being stuck in the house on a Monday. We got the whole family together and came out. Air Force 1 Cheap Wholesale .

Arsenal strengthened their grip on the Champions League places by beating Norwich but the nervy 1-0 win provided little entertainment for a disillusioned fanbase. Discount Nike Air Max 270 . Another ineffectual display from Olivier Giroud was a particular source of frustration… If it was surprising to see Olivier Giroud in Arsenals starting line-up against Sunderland last weekend, it was doubly so to see him stay there for the visit of Norwich. The Frenchmans Premier League scoring drought stretched to 801 minutes with a poor showing at the Stadium of Light, and he added another 90 to the total on a difficult afternoon in north London.The muted protests around the Emirates Stadium suggested many Arsenal supporters are still on Arsene Wengers side, but his continued faith in Giroud must be testing their patience. It looked all the more puzzling as Danny Welbeck netted the decisive goal just three minutes and seven seconds after coming off the bench. Jamie Redknapp gives his reaction to Arsenals 1-0 win over Norwich at the Emirates Giroud did, at least, provide the cushioned header to set up the goal, but that was about the only thing that went right for him all afternoon. The misfiring striker has not scored in the Premier League since Arsenals 3-3 draw with Liverpool in January, and he has only found the net in one of his last 21 appearances in all competitions.The drought never looked like ending against Norwich, who came to soak up pressure and hit the Gunners on the break. In the first half, Arsenal had Petr Cech to thank for keeping the scores level with two saves from Nathan Redmond, and at the other end they failed to muster a single first half shot on target for the fourth time in their last nine home games. Redknapp and Tim Sherwood felt that the introduction of Welbeck changed the game Giroud toiled as the lone striker. He set the tone for the afternoon when he failed to get a shot away from Aaron Ramseys pass in the 11th minute, and at the end of the first period he had touched the ball fewer times than goalkeeper Cech. Our game lacked a little bit of pace and penetration, Wenger conceded in his post-match interview with Sky Sports. It was a bit one-paced. Arsene Wenger described Arsenals 1-0 win against Norwich as a very difficult game It felt like a pointed reference to Giroud, whose struggles continued after the break. Just 30 seconds into the second half he wastefully headed a lofted pass over the onrushing Alex Iwobi on the edge of Norwichs box, and two minutes later he ran a Ramsey through ball out for a goal kick.His lack of movement and reluctance to run in behind made it difficult for the visibly frustrated Mesut Ozil to unlock Norwichs defence, and the visitors were comfortable sitting back and watching Arsenal harmlessly pass the ball from one side of the midfield to the other. Wenger says sorry Arsene Wenger insists he will work hard to make all Arsenal fans happy. It appeared as though Girouds afternoon might be over when Welbeck began stripping off in the dugout, but Wenger had other ideas, and while most Arsenal supporters had not partaken in the banner protests, the crowd were united in vociferous booing at the decision to withdraw Alex Iwobi instead of their No 12.Welbeck, meanwhile, gave Arsenal exactly what they needed. The former Manchester United striker, so impressive before losing his place in the side after the 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace earlier this month, provided an immediate injection of speed and urgency. His first contribution was to set up a shooting chance for Mohamed Elneny, and his well-taken goal came shortly afterwards. Danny Welbeck confirmed that he stills sees himself as a striker It was his fourth in 10 Premier League games since his return from injury in January and with it he equalled his tally for the whole of last season. Suddenly, Arsenal looked dangerous, with Welbecks pace stretching Norwich and providing an outlet for the counter-attack. The contrast with the static Giroud could hardly have been more obvious. Passing problems Olivier Giroud finished the game with a passing accuracy of just 65.7 per cent compared to Danny Welbecks 88.0 per cent. The Frenchman did not link play adequately either. His passing accuracy of 65.7 per cent was the lowest of Arsenals outfield starters, and their attacks continued to break down around him as the second half wore on. He spurned a chance to release Ozil with a poor first touch in the 66th minute, and on the one occasion he did succeed in springing Norwichs offside trap with eight minutes to go, he gave his marker time to recover and steal back possession. Olivier Giroud challenges Norwich defender Ivo Pinto The difference in intensity between the Arsenal forwards was clearest in the closing minutes as, shortly after Giroud could be seen ambling back from an offside position during an Gunners attack, Welbeck was throwing himself into tackles and feverishly pressing Norwich defenders in the centre circle.The contrasting performances give Wenger plenty to think about ahead of Arsenals trip to Manchester City next weekend. On recent evidence, his best chance of claiming a result at the Etihad Stadium would be to deploy the striker more suited to their style.
