    Cardinals right-handed pitcher Michael Wacha returned to St. Louis on Thursday for an MRI. The Cardinals placed Wacha on the 10-day disabled list with a left oblique strain before Thursday night’s game against the Milwaukee Brewers. They recalled right-hander John Gant from Triple-A Memphis. ”Everyone has injuries http://www.thebroncosfootballauthentic.com/dre_mont-jones-jersey-authentic ,” Cardinals general manager Michael Girsch said. ”We’ve just got to deal with it.” Wacha accompanied the team as it flew to Milwaukee from Philadelphia, but then he continued on to St. Louis for the medical scan. ”We have not gotten an MRI yet,” Girsch said. ”Hope to have it tonight.” Wacha, who leads the team in wins (8-2) and strikeouts (71) in 15 starts with a 3.20 ERA, left Wednesday’s start against the Philadelphia Phillies with the injury. He surrendered a two-run homer to Cesar Hernandez in the fourth inning and pitched to one more batter before he was replaced by Mike Mayers. The Cardinals lost 4-3. It’s the third time this season that Gant has been recalled. He is 1-2 with a 4.74 ERA in seven appearances, including three starts for the Cardinals this year. Gant could be a candidate for a start on Monday. ”Gant will be available in the bullpen the next few days http://www.cardinalscheapstore.com/byron-murphy-jersey-cheap ,” Girsch said. ”We still feel we have good options in the rotation. They’re all capable of going the rest of the way. Obviously, we’d like to get guys back and have more depth.” — We are halfway into the 2018 NFL season and we're starting to see just who the good and bad teams really are. This offseason was the most exciting one we have seen in years. Obviously, things can change as time goes on, but fans and analysts have seen the way players mesh with their new teams and how they play. Many moves have been solid, while other moves have seemed like complete disappointments.It’s only going to continue to get crazier as time goes on. This upcoming free agency already looks exciting, and we've seen some in-season trades as well Dre'Mont Jones Jersey , such as the Jaguars trading for Carlos Hyde, and the Cowboys trading for Amari Cooper. The point is, the offseason is a fun time where you see players join new teams. This offseason was as exciting as it could ever be.But not every move has worked out. In fact, (at least) 15 moves have not benefitted certain teams. Moves you make in the offseason don’t always work out well on the field. Players change as the years go on, and so does the chemistry. Every season, teams gain new players http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/austin-bryant-jersey-authentic , as well as lose their own players. Look at the Cowboys, for example. They lost two of their offensive leaders with Jason Witten retiring and Dez Bryant getting released.Teams have to learn from their moves and make changes to move forward. It’s not easy for the front office to make these decisions because it can really affect a team’s chemistry. But, there are also those moves that make a lot of sense.

    One timely swing by slumping Cody Bellinger turned a nip-and-tuck game in favor of the Dodgers. Bellinger hit a grand slam to break a scoreless tie in the sixth inning and Los Angeles beat the sinking New York Mets 5-2 on Friday night behind Alex Wood’s effective pitching. ”Yeah Deandre Baker Jersey , it felt good,” said Bellinger, who began the night batting .231. ”I was just honestly trying to hit the ball any way I could and luckily I connected.” Yasiel Puig added a solo home run in the ninth, and the defending NL champions won their 10th straight against the Mets dating to May 2016. Los Angeles has outscored New York 75-20 in those games, winning each of the past eight by at least three runs – a first in Dodgers history against any opponent, according to STATS. Wood (3-5) outdueled Zack Wheeler, allowing two runs and six hits in six innings to win consecutive starts for the first time since last August. ”With the last two, I feel I’ve made some steps forward, for sure. You’ve just got to keep building on it http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-oshane-ximines-jersey ,” Wood said. The left-hander with the funky delivery struck out seven and walked one as the resurgent Dodgers (39-35) improved to 23-9 since May 17 – the best mark in the majors during that stretch. ”I thought he threw the ball really well. So he’s back, for me,” manager Dave Roberts said . ”He seems very confident now.” Jose Bautista hit his first homer for the Mets, a two-run shot in the sixth. ”It’s nice to get on the board,” he said. ”Hopefully a couple more coming.” An error by second baseman Max Muncy gave New York a chance in the eighth, but with runners at the corners Scott Alexander got Bautista to ground into an inning-ending double play on the next pitch. Muncy made the turn after a smooth play by shortstop Enrique Hernandez. ”It’ll help him sleep a lot better tonight,” Roberts said. Alexander tossed two shutout innings, and Kenley Jansen fanned two in a perfect ninth for his 19th save. New York wasted a dazzling catch by center fielder Michael Conforto that saved a run. After opening 11-1, the Mets (31-42) have lost four in a row and 21 of 27 to fall a season-worst 11 games under .500. They are 1-11 in their past 12 home games and have gone 14 straight at Citi Field without eclipsing four runs. ”No real reason to explain it Julian Love Jersey ,” rookie manager Mickey Callaway said. ”I wish we were playing better for our home fans and giving them more wins. They deserve more wins.” Wheeler (2-6) walked the first two batters in the sixth – though his full-count pitch to leadoff man Joc Pederson certainly appeared to be in the strike zone. One out later, Matt Kemp blooped a single to right field to load the bases. Bellinger connected on an 0-2 delivery, launching a 96 mph fastball into the second deck in right for his second career slam. Last season’s NL Rookie of the Year entered the day hitting .179 with runners in scoring position. ”He was kind of blowing it by me all day. But then again, he’s got three other pitches so you can’t sell out 100 percent. Like I said, I just tried to have a short swing,” Bellinger said. SOMETHING TO GROW ON In the opener of a three-game series, Wheeler went seven innings but dropped to 0-5 in 10 starts since his last win April 29 at San Diego. He threw 114 pitches, his most since returning to the mound last year after missing two seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery. ”Walked them and ended up paying for it,” Wheeler said. ”Thought I threw well tonight. In essence http://www.giantsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-darius-slayton-jersey , just that one pitch.” TRAINER’S ROOM Dodgers: SS Chris Taylor sat out because of a tight left hamstring. He was available off the bench – probably just to hit, according to Roberts. … Reserve infielder Chase Utley was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list after missing 19 games with a sprained left thumb. … Rookie RHP Walker Buehler (right rib microfracture) is scheduled to throw 20-30 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday. He could return to the rotation without a minor league rehab assignment, Roberts said. Buehler is 4-1 with a 2.63 ERA in nine big league starts. Mets: RHP Noah Syndergaard (strained ligament in right index finger) was scheduled to play catch. … OFs Yoenis Cespedes (tightness in upper right quad) and Jay Bruce (strained right hip) will not resume baseball activities until they are free of symptoms. … 3B David Wright (shoulder, back surgery) planned to hit in the indoor batting cage and go through other baseball activities on the field. UP NEXT Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (1-4, 2.76 ERA) is set to make a surprise return from the disabled list Saturday night, starting against Jacob deGrom (5-2, major league-low 1.51 ERA) in a marquee matchup – weather permitting. Kershaw has been sidelined since June 1 with a lower back strain. He originally was scheduled for a rehab start Saturday with Triple-A Oklahoma City at Omaha, but heavy rain in the forecast caused the team to change plans. The three-time Cy Young Award winner and 2014 NL MVP, who also missed nearly all of May with left biceps tendinitis Quinnen Williams Jersey , will be limited against the Mets, with 21-year-old rookie LHP Caleb Ferguson (0-1, 7.59 ERA) ready in reserve. — Here’s a look at what’s happening around the major leagues today: STILL HERE Mets star Jacob deGrom is expected to start at Miami. He was a late scratch Friday night because of what the team called a family issue – no doubt, many fans around the country thought deGrom might’ve been traded when they saw the ace had been pulled. DeGrom (5-3) leads the majors with a 1.69 ERA. He’ll face Marlins righty Pablo Lopez, making his big league debut. NO SALE Red Sox ace Chris Sale will try to extend his hex over slugger Aaron Judge when they meet at Yankee Stadium in the middle matchup of a three-game series. Sale has struck out the New York slugger more than any other pitcher – Judge has fanned 10 times in 15 at-bats against the lefty. Judge has three hits, including a home run, off Sale. CLOSE Bartolo Colon tries for his 245th career victory, which would tie Dennis Martinez for the most by a pitcher from Latin America. The 45-year-old Colon (4-5, 4.72 ERA) starts at home for Texas against White Sox lefty Carlos Rodon. MONTH OF MAHLE Reds rookie Tyler Mahle (6-6) tries to complete an undefeated month when he faces the first-place Milwaukee Brewers. The 23-year-old righty is 3-0 in five June starts with a 2.30 ERA. He’s been Cincinnati’s best young pitcher http://www.jetsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-jachai-polite-jersey , leading NL rookies in wins. Milwaukee goes with Jhoulys Chacin (6-3). COULD BE Washington righty Jeremy Hellickson (2-0, 2.28) is expected to return from the disabled list to start at Philadelphia. He has been sidelined since June 4 with a right hamstring strain. He’s hoping for the same burst the Nationals enjoyed Friday night at Citizens Bank Park, when they hit seven homers in a 17-7 romp. —

    When Jerry Jones bought the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , he had to be looking at some mirror making a monologue and promising big changes. His entire ownership with the Cowboys has been a lot of twists and turns in which no one knows what to expect from the corkiest owner in the NFL. Not only has he made the league as a whole much more financially stable because of his myriad of ideas, but he has also challenged players, other owners, and commissioners who stand in his path.What can’t be taken away is the fact that Jerry Jones is a Hall of Famer in the NFL and owns a team that won three Super Bowls under his watch. That is something that many can’t say they’ve done and Jerry has to be very proud of those accomplishments. The Cowboys team in the '90s was completely stacked and looked like a new version of the NFL when they first burst onto the scene. The team that managed to win three Super Bowl rings in four years somehow quickly collapsed.That is where we get to this list. Jerry Jones has all of that success, yet he has made some of the more questionable moves in NFL history. On one end Jerry is such a brilliant businessman, but his flaws as a talent evaluator have shown over the past 25 years without Jimmy Johnson. These strange moves will be discussed for a long time in NFL circles but one thing is clear: there will never be another Jerry Jones. Hal Steinbrenner says his New York Yankees may need a starting pitching upgrade if they’re going to reach their first World Series since 2009. Steinbrenner, the Yankees managing general partner, said Wednesday the club will explore the trade market for an arm, especially considering the recent loss of left-hander Jordan Montgomery, who had season-ending Tommy John surgery on June 7. The Yankees entered Wednesday with the best record in baseball, narrowly ahead of AL East rival Boston. The club has space to acquire an impact player and still remain under the $197 million luxury-tax threshold, a goal the team has stated several times. ”Clearly starting pitching was always a concern http://www.brownsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-austin-seibert-jersey ,” Steinbrenner said, speaking to a small group of reporters at an owners’ meeting. ”It’s definitely one of the areas we’re going to be looking at. ”Purposely left a decent amount of money for just this,” he added. ”If we decide to go get a pitcher and if a pitcher’s available, I think we definitely have the flexibility that would allow me to do just that.” Cole Hamels, Chris Archer and Madison Bumgarner are among the biggest names that could potentially be available at the deadline, but they would likely cost one or more of New York’s blue-chip prospects. Steinbrenner wants to be cautious about moving high-ceiling youngsters to beef up the rotation. ”It depends what the asks are. I mean, I love the young guys,” he said. ”Our fans love the young guys, and I think it’s obvious to all of us. They’ve made a heck of an impact, and to see Gleyber (Torres) and (Miguel) Andujar and others, you know, right off the heels of (Aaron) Judge and (Gary) Sanchez and (Luis) Severino Trysten Hill Jersey , I mean it’s pretty amazing.” The team does have internal options, and Steinbrenner said he’s willing to stick by some young, untested pitchers if needed. Jonathan Loaisiga will make his major league debut Friday, rookie Domingo German has held his own in six starts, and prospects Justus Sheffield, Chance Adams and Erik Swanson could get looks later this year, too. ”We’ve got some options for August, September, but again, we’re going to look at anything that comes across our desk,” Steinbrenner said. OFF AND RUNNING Steinbrenner praised first-year manager Aaron Boone, pleased with his performance thus far despite the rookie manager having no professional coaching experience prior to the season. ”Everything we could ask for. Calm http://www.cowboysauthorizedshops.com/authentic-connor-mcgovern-jersey , cool, collected,” Steinbrenner said. ”Players have a lot of respect for him. He’s been great in the clubhouse and he’s been great with his coaching staff, and the coaches he’s brought in have been good so I mean it’s as advertised.” NO WORRIES Giancarlo Stanton has been good, but not great, in his first year with the Yankees. He entered Wednesday batting .240 with 14 homers, 34 RBIs and a .797 OPS – compared to a 1.007 OPS when he won the NL MVP Award last season. Steinbrenner believes New York’s marquee offseason acquisition will crank up his production soon, though. ”He’s had ups and downs, but when he gets hot, he’ll carry a team,” Steinbrenner said. ”We’ve all seen that and it will happen. Work ethic is great. Worked his way right into the clubhouse in a great way, teammates like him Tony Pollard Jersey , so he’s going to be great.” NOT-SO-FRIENDLY SKIES New York has had eight games either postponed or suspended by poor weather already this season. If that wasn’t enough of an inconvenience, they’ve also encountered their share of travel snafus- which included having to spend a night at Dulles International Airport in mid-May due to weather and a problem with the plane. As an experienced pilot himself, Steinbrenner understands that air travel can be an inexact science. ”We all fly commercial and even small jets, even my plane has problems from time to time and I fly a dinky little propeller plane,” he said. ”So you start to get into these airliners, I mean they’re complex from the avionics to the life support systems to the engines to the hydraulics. They’re just complicated machines. … It’s obviously air transportation, very reliable and very safe. But it’s very safe and very reliable because they don’t take a plane up if it’s not close to a hundred percent, right?” —

    Even if numbers occasionally lie Diontae Johnson Jersey , most of them indicate the New England Patriots are in great position to hoist a sixth Lombardi Trophy. The reasons begin in the only place they could: with Tom Brady. Yes, at 40 years old Brady would be the oldest quarterback to win a Super Bowl if the Patriots beat the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. He would dethrone Peyton Manning, who won at age 39 with the Denver Broncos to cap the 2015 season. Brady has put up numbers in his 18th season unmatched by any player in NFL history. He led the league with 4,577 yards passing during the regular season and his five touchdown passes are tied for the most in the playoffs. Brady’s seven Super Bowl appearances are as many as the entire Eagles roster. He’s faced a myriad of difficult scenarios in the championship game, including last year’s 25-point hole the Patriots dug out of to beat the Falcons. Brady won that one without tight end Rob Gronkowski, who will be in uniform after being cleared late this week. Close games have been no problem Justin Layne Jersey , for Brady and coach Bill Belichick either. The total difference in scoring in those seven games is 12 points: Patriots 169, opponents 157. You want to talk about comebacks? No player in the Super Bowl era has more fourth-quarter comebacks in the playoffs in his career than Brady’s eight. It’s probably why Brady chuckled this week when he was again asked about how long he wanted to keep playing. ”Why does everyone want me to retire so bad?” Brady said. ”I don’t get it. I’m having fun. The team’s doing good. I know I’m a little bit older than most of the guys, but I’m really enjoying it. … I’m not thinking about retirement. I’m thinking about the Super Bowl and trying to win the most important game of the year.” As big as the Brady factor is, he’s not the only advantage New England has. The Patriots lost go-to receiver Julian Edelman in the preseason to a knee injury and linebacker Dont’a Hightower to a season-ending shoulder injury in October. After some early-season struggles, Belichick found a way to plug the holes, with contributions from several previously unheralded players like Trey Flowers Benny Snell Jr. Jersey , Kyle Van Noy, Lawrence Guy and Ricky Jean Francois . New England has also gotten a strong season from receiver Brandin Cook after acquiring him from New Orleans this offseason. He posted his third straight 1,000-yard receiving season (1,082) and was second on the team in receiving yards behind only Gronkowski (1,084). Running back Dion Lewis has also found new life just two seasons removed from a knee injury. He led the team with 896 yards rushing and six rushing touchdowns. It’s underlined the football savvy of Belichick, who with a sixth Super Bowl victory would pass Vince Lombardi and tie George Halas and Curly Lambeau for most NFL championships by a coach. Belichick will be taking part in his 11th Super Bowl as a head coach or assistant Zach Gentry Jersey , the most among any coach in NFL history. That amounts to 21.2 percent of all Super Bowls in league history and 34.4 percent of all Super Bowls since his first appearance as the Giants defensive coordinator in 1986. Though there have been reports of alleged friction this season between Belichick, Brady and team owner Robert Kraft, it’s clear they are on the same page when it comes to the pursuit of championships. ”It changes every year. The venues are different, the teams are different, the matchups are different, and the road the team has traveled to get here is different Melvin Gordon III Jersey , as is the road your opponent has traveled,” Belichick said. ”Each one is unique. Each one’s special.” — The Los Angeles Chargers have signed kicker Roberto Aguayo to a reserve/future contract. The Chargers announced the deal Wednesday. Aguayo was a second-round pick in 2016 by Tampa Bay, which traded up to draft the Florida State product. He was the highest-drafted kicker since Mike Nugent in 2005. But Aguayo missed nine of his 31 field goal attempts as a rookie, and he was waived by Tampa Bay last August. Aguayo spent time with Chicago and Carolina this season, but didn’t attempt a kick. The Chargers (9-7) used four full-time kickers last season: rookie Younghoe Koo, Nick Novak Joey Bosa Jersey , Travis Coons and Nick Rose. Los Angeles finished last in the NFL in field goal percentage, making just 20 of its 30 attempts. —

    Hope springs eternal in the NFL offseason. Every team has a clean slate and fan bases hold out hope that their team makes a major trade or signing to boost their chance at making the playoffs. The problem is very few teams have legitimate chances of winning the Super Bowl each season Tony Pollard Jersey , regardless of what executives and coaches trick their fans into believing. Sure, a weaker team can get hot for a few weeks, but Noah Fant Jersey , by the end of the season, talent rises to the top. That's why Tom Brady has five Super Bowl rings and why the Cleveland Browns can be put on this list every season.Many teams that made this list have improved in the offseason and we can't know the impact high-profile rookies might have, but generally you can cherry pick half of the league each season when determining who will be on the outside looking in come next February. Can one of these teams make a major move at the draft to significantly improve their chances? Sure Dalton Risner Jersey , but most of the teams listed have major holes to fill in more than one position and don't have the resources to improve as such. If you're a fan of any of the teams listed you'll defiantly disagree (unless it's the Browns), but that's fine, because Drew Lock Jersey , like coaches and players, the offseason is the one time of year you're allowed to be optimistic. Indians right-hander Danny Salazar will miss the remainder of the season after undergoing shoulder surgery. The team said Salazar had an arthroscopic debridement and bursectomy. He will not be able to throw for at least three months while he recovers and there is no definitive timetable on when he’ll pitch again. Salazar has been on the disabled list since the start of the season after arriving at spring training with a sore shoulder. He had numerous procedures before the decision was made to have the operation. The 28-year-old Salazar went 5-6 with a 4.28 ERA in 19 starts for Cleveland last season. His loss deprives the AL Central leaders of some depth in case they suffer any more injuries. Salazar made the All-Star team in 2016, when he went 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 starts. Salazar has been with the Indians since 2013.

Tonight was important, especially (after) the two points that slipped the night before. It was a good effort, and I think it brought the best out of us.”Matt Murray finished with 33 saves to keep the NHL’s highest scoring team in check http://www.officialoilers.com/authentic-adidas-ryan-nugent-hopkins-jersey , and Letang tied Hall of Famer Paul Coffey’s franchise record for career goals by a defenseman. Letang’s shot from the right circle 6:02 into the second period beat Andrei Vasilevskiy to give him 12 goals on the season and 108 since his NHL debut in 2007.Letang, a five-time All-Star, called the milestone “surreal.” He’s still a long way off from Coffey’s 396 career goals over 21 NHL seasons.“Growing up watching him, I never thought I would have my name next to his,” Letang said.Riley Sheahan, Phil Kessel and Sidney Crosby scored during a first-period outburst by Pittsburgh. Evgeni Malkin picked up two assists to become the fifth Russian-born player in league history to reach 600 career assists then drew a 5-minute fighting major in the third period after tussling with Tampa Bay star Steven Stamkos.“That’s (his) best game in a while,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said of Malkin. “He was on the puck. You notice him. He was a presence every shift.”Murray withstood an early barrage by Tampa Bay to hand the Lighting just their fourth regulation loss in their last 25 games.Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on five shots before settling down to finish with 18 saves, but Tampa Bay couldn’t recover in its return from a 10-day break. J.T. Miller and Stamkos scored late in the third period to keep the Lighting from being shut out for the first time this season, but it wasn’t nearly enough to prevent Tampa Bay from falling to 2-12-2 in its last 14 regular-season visits to Pittsburgh.“We just kind of got behind the eight-ball and they capitalized on it their couple chances they got,” Stamkos said. “It was just an uphill battle from there. So I thought we stuck with it Ryan Strome Jersey , but just too sloppy to start the game.”Sullivan expressed frustration at his team’s scattershot play against the Devils, when turnovers and disinterested play in front of Murray dropped Pittsburgh to 1-7-1 against last-place teams. Two days later against an opponent with the inside track to claim the Presidents’ Trophy, the effort and the results were far different.Sheahan gave the Penguins the lead 3:25 into the game when he pounced on a rebound of Garrett Wilson’s wraparound attempt and flipped it past Vasilevskiy. Kessel’s 21st goal of the season less than five minutes later came in much the same fashion. Kessel and Bryan Rust broke in 2-on-1 and Rust attempted to skate across the crease and beat Vasilevskiy with a backhand only to lose control of the puck. No matter. Kessel, standing at the left post, tapped it in to make it 2-0.Pittsburgh needed just 16 seconds to push the advantage to 3-0. Jake Guentzel forced a turnover behind the Tampa Bay net. Dominik Simon jumped on the loose puck and fed Crosby all alone in front.The Lightning opted to stick with Vasilevskiy and turned up the pressure on the other end of the ice. Pittsburgh went more than 17 minutes without a shot on net at one point, but Tampa Bay couldn’t figure out a way to beat Murray. By the time the Lightning finally broke through on Miller’s goal with 4:05 remaining in the third, the outcome was already decided.“I just thought we lost our legs a little bit in the second, gained it back in the third, clawed back a little bit,” Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. “But still you’re down four Womens Wayne Gretzky Jersey , it’s tough.”NOTES: Kendall Coyne Schofield, a forward on the Olympic gold medal-winning U.S. women’s hockey team who finished seventh in the fastest skate competition at the All-Star Game last weekend, worked the game as an analyst for NBC Sports Network. … Pittsburgh F Derick Brassard missed the game with an upper-body injury. … Tampa Bay’s top-ranked power play went 1 for 2 with the man advantage.

    The Dallas Stars will move forward with their new coach and a familiar young face after missing out on the NHL’s top free agent.General manager Jim Nill started another long offseason for the Stars without postseason play by hiring coach Jim Montgomery out of the college ranks in early May. On the first day of free agency Sunday Womens Craig Smith Jersey , right wing Valeri Nichushkin signed a $5.9 million, two-year contract to return to Dallas after the last two seasons playing at home in Russia.Nichushkin was the 10th overall pick by the Stars in the 2013 draft, and had 64 points (23 goals, 41 assists) while playing 166 games in three seasons by time he was 21 before returning to Russia and playing in the Kontinental Hockey League. Now he is back in the NHL at age 23.”Over his past two seasons in the KHL and with the national team, he has continued his growth and development as a hockey player,” Nill said. ”He is a fantastic addition to our depth at forward and we look forward to his return to our club.”The Stars were one of six teams who met last week with John Tavares, the New York Islanders captain who on Sunday agreed to a $77 million, seven-year deal to play for his hometown Toronto Maple Leafs.Tavares could have been a big boost for the Stars, who have missed the playoffs eight of the last 10 seasons. Dallas still has high-scoring All-Star forwards in captain Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin. They also have goaltender Ben Bishop, who got a new backup Sunday.Free agent goaltender Anton Khudobin signed a two-year, $5 million contract with the Stars after a backup role in Boston last season behind Tuukka Rask. Khudobin has played in 147 games with 135 starts over the past nine seasons with four different teams.Dallas also signed 12-year veteran right wing Blake Comeau to a $7.2 million Filip Forsberg Jersey , three-year contract after he spent the past three seasons in Colorado. Defenseman Roman Polak got a $1.3 million, one-year deal after 54 games for Toronto last season.The 32-year-old Comeau, the Islanders’ second-round draft pick in 2004, had 13 goals and 21 assists last season with the Avalanche. That included three short-handed goals.”His elite speed makes him a disruptive defensive presence and he fits well with what head coach Jim Montgomery is trying to accomplish,” Nill said.Goaltender Kari Lehtonen, who is second in Stars history with 215 wins but had become a backup to Bishop, is an unrestricted free agent.The Stars lost left wings Antoine Roussel ($12 million, four years with Vancouver) and Curtis McKenzie ($3 million, two years with Vegas), and defenseman Greg Pateryn ($6.75 million, three years with Minnesota) in free agency Sunday.— TORONTO (AP) — The Colorado Avalanche caught the Toronto Maple Leafs in a lull and took full advantage.Carl Soderberg had his first career hat trick and the Avalanche defeated the Maple Leafs 6-3 on Monday night.Gabriel Landeskog Juuse Saros Jersey , Mikko Rantanen and Matt Calvert also scored for Colorado, which had lost nine of its last 10 games overall (1-7-2), and seven straight in regulation on the road.Semyon Varlamov stopped 17 shots for the Avalanche.“We were going tonight,” Soderberg said. “I’m glad we could get a win.”Igor Ozhiganov, Kasperi Kapanen and Mitch Marner scored for Toronto. Frederik Andersen made 32 saves in his return to the starting lineup after missing eight games with a groin injury. Auston Matthews added two assists.Toronto, which entered play two points up on the Boston Bruins for second in the Atlantic Division, has lost five of its last seven games and four of five at home.“We just didn’t win enough races, enough puck battles,” Leafs center John Tavares said. “It starts with guys like myself, we have to do a better job consistently.”The Maple Leafs talked ahead of Monday’s game about how matching a reeling opponent’s desperation level would be crucial. They didn’t come close.“We’ve only got ourselves to blame,” Leafs head coach Mike Babcock said. “This is not good enough.”Soderberg scored his second goal of the game with 8:15 left in the third period and added an empty net goal.Soderberg broke a 3-3 tie midway through the third when he snapped his 14th goal of the season past Andersen off a pass from J.T. Compher after Colin Wilson won a battle behind Toronto’s net.Toronto Kyle Turris Jersey , which went 4-4-0 without Andersen, pulled its goalie with just under three minutes to go, but Calvert beat Matthews to a loose puck in the Colorado zone and banked a shot off the boards for his seventh of the season with 2:51 left.Soderberg completed the hat trick by scoring into an empty net at 18:12.“Everyone is getting better and we’ve hit a lull,” Babcock said. “We’ve got to get turned.”With some of the fans at Scotiabank Arena booing Leafs defenseman Jake Gardiner every time he touched the puck after a soft play led directly to Soderberg’s short-handed score in the second period to make it 3-2 for the visitors, Marner tied the game six minutes into the third.The winger took a pass from Travis Dermott and ripped his 18th goal of the season and third in as many games past Varlamov’s glove.After a scoreless first, the middle period featured five goals, and another that was disallowed.Ozhiganov scored his third at 2:14 with a shot from the point through a screen fooled Varlamov.Leafs winger Par Lindholm appeared to score at 3:32, but the goal was called back after Colorado challenged for offside.Toronto went right back to work and scored 11 seconds after play resumed — four seconds in game time before the puck entered the net on Lindholm’s effort — when Kapanen snapped a seven-game drought with his 15th.Landeskog tipped home his 28th at 6:33 off a point shot from Tyson Barrie.Andersen did well to stop MacKinnon on a partial breakaway and Wilson’s quick backhand, but could do nothing when Rantanen stripped Nazem Kadri in the Toronto zone and scored his 21st at 9:56.Soderberg then made it 3-2 on his 13th with 5:31 left in the second when he outmuscled Gardiner for the puck late in a Toronto power play before chipping a shot past Andersen’s blocker.With their No. 1 goalie back in the crease, the Leafs played their best lineup — except for injured fourth-line winger Tyler Ennis (broken ankle) — for just the fifth time this season.After Andersen had to be sharp on a couple Colorado chances as Toronto barely touched the puck in the game’s first two minutes, the Leafs had great looks on a power play.NOTES: Andersen had originally targeted Saturday’s home game against Boston Youth Matt Irwin Jersey , only to be cut down by a flu bug. … Leafs backup Garret Sparks, meanwhile, was back on the bench following five games out with a concussion. … Michael Hutchinson, who started the last five outings for Toronto on an emergency basis with both Andersen and Sparks sidelined, was loaned to the AHL Marlies. … Colorado’s top line of Rantanen, Landeskog and Nathan MacKinnon came in with 185 points on the season. Rantanen and MacKinnon ranked second and fifth in league scoring, respectively, while Landeskog was 19th.UP NEXTAvalanche: Wraps up a five-game trip through Canada in Ottawa on Wednesday.Maple Leafs: Visit Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.

CHICAGO (AP) The Los Angeles Kings have owned the third period this season. The first period has been a bit of an adventure, but it’s coming around.Torrey Mitchell and Andy Andreoff scored during Los Angeles’ dominant start, and the Kings held off the Chicago Blackhawks for a 3-1 victory Monday night.”Arguably one of the best periods we’ve played this year, that first period,” captain Anze Kopitar said.Article continues below ...Los Angeles (32-22-5) has outscored opponents 73-41 in the third this season. The Kings had to scramble in the final period against the Blackhawks, but Jonathan Quick made 12 of his 27 saves in the third to help close out the Kings’ second straight win since a three-game slide.Los Angeles also put together a strong start in Saturday’s 4-2 victory at Buffalo.”I think the last two games, the way we started the hockey games has been the difference,” coach John Stevens said.Dion Phaneuf added his second goal in three games since joining Los Angeles in a trade with Ottawa Matt Hunwick Jersey Womens , helping the Kings improve to 3-3 on their seven-game trip as they fight for playoff positioning in the Western Conference.Last-place Chicago looked awful for most of the night during its ninth loss in 10 games. Anton Forsberg made 29 stops for the Blackhawks (25-27-8), and Patrick Sharp snapped an 11-game scoring drought with his seventh goal of the season.”It was a tough, tough start,” coach Joel Quenneville said. ”There’s a certain standard to competing and starting the game and you watch in the first 20 minutes every race, every puck battle, every single play we were behind it. They won the period in every category.”It was the first game at the United Center since the Blackhawks banned four fans from their home games for directing a racist taunt toward Washington’s Devante Smith-Pelly. The team also apologized to the forward and the Capitals.Smith-Pelly was sitting in the penalty box during the third period of Saturday night’s 7-1 loss to Chicago when the fans yelled ”basketball, basketball, basketball” toward the winger, who is black. An off-ice official sitting next to Smith-Pelly notified security and the fans were promptly ejected.”Totally unacceptable in our game, in any sport and in society today Jeff Skinner Jersey Womens ,” Quenneville said.The Kings grabbed control right at the start, outshooting the Blackhawks 15-4 in the first. A streaking Mitchell drove a slap shot from the high slot by a screened Forsberg at 8:31, and Andreoff made it 2-0 when he tipped in Jonny Brodzinski’s shot with 3:23 left in the period.With Chicago’s Lance Bouma in the penalty box for interference, Phaneuf beat Forsberg with another big slap shot at 4:04 of the second. The big defenseman also scored in his debut with Los Angeles on Thursday.”We weren’t playing with a whole lot of speed or energy or compete in our game and when you do that against a good team like the Kings, that’s going to happen,” Sharp said.Sharp’s rebound goal got Chicago on the board 1:42 into the third, and the Blackhawks spent much of the final period in the Kings zone. Quick denied Brandon Saad on a prime short-handed chance about three minutes in, and also stopped Artem Anisimov on a power-play opportunity right in front.NOTES: The Blackhawks traded D Michal Kempny to Washington for a conditional third-round pick in the 2018 draft. The Capitals will part with the higher selection between their own third-rounder and the Toronto pick they acquired from New Jersey as part of the Marcus Johansson trade. … The Kings also beat Chicago 3-1 on Dec. 3.

    NASHVILLE Adidas Carter Rowney Jersey , Tenn. (AP) Predators goalie Pekka Rinne has years of postseason experience, including a couple Game 7s and a Stanley Cup Final.Connor Hellebuyck has the Winnipeg Jets on the verge of their first Western Conference final in his first playoff appearance, and the best comparison he can make to the looming Game 7 in Nashville is playing for Hockey East championships back in college.”I have yet to be scored on in one, so I like those odds,” Hellebuyck said. ”This has nothing to do with that. This is whole new level and you’ve just got to get into the game as much as you can.”Nobody has reflected the roller-coaster ride of this thrilling Western Conference semifinal between the NHL’s top two teams in the regular season than their Vezina Trophy finalists. Rinne has been pulled from not one but two games – both on his own ice – before staving off elimination in Game 6 with his second shutout this postseason.”When you think about Game 7, as a team, as an individual, you’re just going to give it all and do your best and do it as a team and trust your teammates,” Rinne said Wednesday. ”I think that’s the best formula and focus on your own team.”Hellebuyck’s stats include a 2-1 record in Nashville in this series, which ends Thursday night (8 p.m. ET, NBCSN) in the only Game 7 of the second round this postseason. Hellebuyck gave up three goals in a 4-0 home loss Monday night , turning this into a winner-take-all game for the right to play Vegas in the conference final.”We know it’s all on the line Adidas Jaycob Megna Jersey , and nothing in the past is going to bother us,” Hellebuyck said. ”We can’t let it. This is going to be the most fun game we’re going to play and I think a lot of us are going to enjoy ourselves.”RESTED RINNEA Justin Timberlake concert Wednesday night pushed Game 7 to Thursday night, giving the 35-year-old Rinne two days of rest. During the regular season, the Predators goalie went 11-3 with a 1.99 goals-against average and .936 save percentage during the season when he got two days to rest between games. ”It’s nice to have that extra day,” Rinne said.EDGE IN EXPERIENCEThe eventual Stanley Cup champion in each of the past five seasons has won a Game 7 along the way. This is the Predators’ third Game 7. The Jets will become the 29th active NHL franchise to play a Game 7 on Thursday night. Nashville is among both the 14 teams to win their first Game 7 and the 10 who did that on the road, beating Anaheim in 2016 to clinch a first-round series.Nashville coach Peter Laviolette, 5-2 in Game 7s, is one of only four NHL coaches to win a Game 7 in each of four different playoff rounds (Pat Burns, Mike Keenan and John Tortorella). He also has 20 Predators who have at least one Game 7 on their resume. Jets coach Paul Maurice is 2-0 himself, though only eight of his Jets have played in a Game 7.RAZOR-THIN SERIESNashville finished only three points (117) ahead of Winnipeg (114) for the Presidents’ Trophy, and this series has been about as close as possible. The Jets have more goals (22-18), while Nashville has more shots on goal (217-213). But even-strength shot attempts are 338 apiece with each team blocking 97 shots. The Predators have only three more hits (144-141).TOP LINE MATTERSNashville’s JOFA line of Ryan Johansen Adidas Max Jones Jersey , Filip Forsberg and Viktor Arvidsson combined for eight points in keeping the Predators alive with a 4-0 win in Game 6. Winnipeg’s top line of Blake Wheeler, Kyle Connor and Mark Scheifele had eight points in Game 5.”It’s the final game for one team,” Jets coach Paul Maurice said. ”So, there’s lot of emotion, lots of excitement. But there’s definitely a calmness to it. There’s a finality coming. It brings out the best I think.”THE DREAM GAME”Ever since I started playing hockey, I was five years old, you put yourself in that position where you play a Game 7 in the playoffs,” Jets forward Mathieu Perrault said. ”This is what we play for. So this should be the most fun we’ve had all year.”— OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — The Ottawa Senators were ready for their 4-on-3 power play in overtime against the Pittsburgh Penguins.Ryan Dzingel scored with the man advantage at 1:20 of overtime after the Penguins were called for too many men on the ice in Ottawa’s 2-1 victory Saturday night.Senators coach Guy Boucher said they simulated the situation in practice earlier in the day.“I had a weird feeling this morning,” Boucher said. “We were supposed to practice 5-on-4 and I don’t know, we practiced 5-on-3 and 4-on-3, and the boys executed perfectly Adidas Andrej Sustr Jersey , so it was good. It was a good, lucky day.”Thomas Chabot scored in regulation, Mark Stone assisted on both goals and Craig Anderson made 35 shots.“Stone told me he missed me on the 5-on-4 just before so I knew he was looking for me and, obviously, 5-on-3, 4-on-3 we’re trying to get the puck in his hands because he makes things happen. He was ether going to me or (Chabot) and he faked out and came to me. Chabot already got one, so he was looking for me and it found a way in.”Jean-Sebastien Dea scored for Pittsburgh, and Casey DeSmith stopped 27 shot.“I still think we can give ourselves a better chance in the third, staying out of the box and overtime,” said Sidney Crosby. “We did a lot of good things, but you can’t expect to win games, especially close games Adidas Alex Galchenyuk Jersey , putting yourself in that position time and time again.”Ottawa was without scoring leader Matt Duchene, with the team saying he’ll be out weeks with a groin injury. The Senators also revealed that Bobby Ryan would be sidelined indefinitely because of a concussion.“It’s opportunity for other guys,” Anderson said. “You can’t worry about what you don’t have. You have to worry about what you do have and what we have in here is 20 guys willing to pay the price to try and win hockey games.”Ottawa opened the scoring at 4:24 of the first period. Stone fed Chabot at the point and fired a shot through traffic to beat DeSmith.Dea tied it at 3:27 of the second.“I thought we dominated a lot of the game,” Penguins coach Mike Sullivan said. “We couldn’t find a way to score more goals, but there was a lot to like about our effort. For the most part, it was pretty solid.”NOTES: D Christian Jaros was a healthy scratch for the Senators, while Mark Borowiecki missed his eighth straight game with an upper-body injury. … Pittsburgh defensemen Chad Ruhwedel and Juuso Riikola were healthy scratches.UP NEXTPenguins: At New York Islanders on Monday night.Senators: Host Boston on Sunday night.

The Islanders then snapped a three-game losing streak Tuesday by knocking off Vancouver 5-2.Article continues below ...The wins left the longtime rivals tied for second place in the Metropolitan Division — a far different spot than most would have forecast for the duo after last season, when the seventh-place Islanders and eighth-place Rangers were separated by three points as they brought up the rear in the Metro.The Rangers embarked upon a rebuilding plan when they dealt several veterans at the February trade deadline and hired rookie head coach David Quinn in May. The Islanders, who hired reigning Stanley Cup winner Barry Trotz as head coach in June, appeared to be following suit in July, when star center John Tavares left as a free agent for the Toronto Maple Leafs.Instead, the Islanders (9-6-2) and Rangers (9-7-2) may be playing for a share of first place Thursday night. A win by either team and a regulation loss by the Columbus Blue Jackets against the Florida Panthers will create a tie atop the division.It’s early Authentic Artturi Lehkonen Jersey , of course, but an Islanders-Rangers game that matters offers some unexpected excitement on an otherwise barren New York sports landscape. The third NHL team in the tri-state area, the New Jersey Devils, have lost nine of 12 and have the fewest points in the Eastern Conference. The NFL’s Giants and Jets are a combined 5-15 and vying for top-five draft picks while the NBA’s Knicks and Nets are a combined 10-20.Plus, Islanders-Rangers games have been notoriously combative, both on the ice and in the stands, since the Islanders joined the NHL in 1972. The Rangers have earned three more wins (125-122) over the Islanders and hold a narrow 878-861 lead in goals scored “We’ve talked about it a little bit but you hear more from the outside Carey Price Jersey ,” first-year Islanders winger Tom Kuhnhackl told reporters following practice Wednesday. “You hear about the rivalry. It’s something special. I’m excited.”The Islanders have dominated the series the last three seasons. They have won the last seven games in the series and are 11-1-0 against the Rangers since moving to Barclays Center, where they have never lost to the Blueshirts.“I think, so far, obviously, the record doesn’t lie,” Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist told reporters following practice Wednesday. “They’ve been better than us at the Barclays Center, so we’ve got to do what we can to turn that around. They always come out hard and play with confidence and we’ll match that.”Lundqvist and Thomas Greiss Jeff Petry Jersey Kids , each of whom earned the win over the Canucks earlier this week, are expected to face each other in a battle of number one goalies Thursday night. Lundqvist made 25 saves against Vancouver on Monday, when he recorded the 437th victory of his career to move into a tie for seventh-place on the NHL’s all-time wins list with Jacques Plante. Greiss made 22 saves Tuesday.Lundqvist is 30-20-7 in 59 career appearances against the Islanders. Greiss is 3-0-1 in five games against the Rangers. The Columbus Blue Jackets reported today they have sent star goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky home after an incident where he failed to meet team expectations. What he was sent home for has not been reported, but the 'incident' was serious enough that a message needed to be sent to the player that his behavior was not acceptable.Considering Bobrovsky's status as a pending unrestricted free agent with the Blues Jackets organization, this news comes as a bit of a shocking development.聽 In the team-issued press release, the聽Columbus Blue Jackets聽stated Bobrovsky would not be with the team for Thursday's game against the Nashville Predators and Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen made the following statement on the official team website:advertisingThere are certain expectations and values that we have established for our players that define our culture. An incident occurred in which Sergei failed to meet those expectations and values, so we made the decision that he would not be with the team for tonight鈥檚 game. This is an internal matter and we will have no further comment at this time.Some are wondering if there's a connection between Bobrovsky's poor performance in a loss on Tuesday where he was pulled from the game and his pending status as a free agent. Head coach John Tortorella would not go into any more detail about the situation when asked by media but sources around the NHL have started to connect the dots.advertisingSo this would seem like a one-day thing.... although in the bigger picture Jonathan Drouin Jersey , hard to fathom Bobrovsky re-signing at any time with UFA status July 1... https://t.co/mrqRQSavzI— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) January 10, 2019What This MeansIf an explanation is never given, speculation will run wild as to what led to this 鈥渟uspension鈥?by the team and more than that, it will be assumed that this is the beginning of the end of Bobrovsky's time in Columbus. He will immediately become a name to watch as the franchise and the rest of the NHL head towards the聽trade deadline on February 25.A former two-time Vezina Trophy winner will certainly garner some interest around the NHL as a rental but the聽public acknowledgments that he's interested in being the highest paid goalie in the NHL will be a story to watch as teams do or don't show interest in signing him long-term.聽He hasn't exactly been the Bobrovsky of old this season.advertising

    SUNRISE Womens Evander Kane Jersey , Fla. (AP) — The Florida Panthers are trying to regain the momentum they had entering the All-Star break.Mike Hoffman’s third-period goal put Florida ahead to stay and the Panthers defeated the Vegas Golden Knights 3-1 Saturday night.Hoffman broke a 1-1 tie when he grabbed a loose puck along the boards on the right side, skated in, and slid the puck between Marc-Andre Fleury’s pads with 13:47 left in the third.

We’ve got to find a way to get out of this streak, this bad streak, quickly.”It doesn’t get any easier for the Golden Knights as they play at Tampa Bay on Tuesday.“Get ready for the next one,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. “We can’t do nothing about tonight or the last three games.

He extended his career highs in points and goals while becoming the sixth player in franchise history to reach 100 points in a season.”He was dialed in,” coach Dave Hakstol said.Giroux said a key to his performance in such a crucial game was keeping his emotions in check.”When you wake up, you try to be not jacked up,” he said. ”You learn while you go through seasons. You don’t want to try to do too much.”Michael Raffl and Ivan Provorov also scored for the Flyers, who needed at least one point to make the playoffs and eliminate the Florida Panthers from postseason contention.”We had a lot of good performances tonight and that’s what it takes,” Hakstol said.The Flyers (42-26-14) are returning to the playoffs for the first time since 2016, and will be vying for their third Stanley Cup.

    WASHINGTON (AP) It sure looked as if Alex Ovechkin was slowing down http://www.sabresshoponline.com/authentic-kyle-okposo-jersey , at least by his standards.This time a year ago, Ovechkin and the Washington Capitals were limping away from another early playoff exit. His 16 even-strength goals in the regular season tied for the lowest of his career. Injuries limited him to five goals in 13 playoff games.Then a funny thing happened. Coach Barry Trotz took time from visiting his son in Russia to meet with Ovechkin and talk about changing and evolving his game at age 32. Time doesn’t stop, not even for the greatest goal-scorer of his generation. Trotz and general manager Brian MacLellan wanted more goals, better foot speed and for their cornerstone player to take care of his body to be able to handle more time on the ice.”That’s just life: You have to change, you have to grow,” Trotz said. ”He was motivated to show everybody that he still is a great player in this league.”Ovechkin led the NHL with 49 goals in the regular season, 15 more in the playoffs as the Conn Smythe Trophy winner and showed in his 13th season he could lead his team to the Stanley Cup. Ordinarily a team would be running out the clock on the final three seasons of a 13-year deal with a player of his age, but now Ovechkin is a Stanley Cup champion and there is no telling how much more the big forward can do in his NHL career.”Was tough time, but we fight through it and we get result,” Ovechkin said. ”It’s just something special. I don’t know. I’m just very excited and I’m very happy right now.”Hours after the Russian superstar lifted the Cup on the ice in Las Vegas, President Donald Trump devoted his first tweet of the morning to Ovechkin and the Capitals.”Congratulations to the Washington Capitals on their GREAT play and winning the Stanley Cup Championship Rasmus Ristolainen Jersey ,” Trump tweeted . ”Alex Ovechkin, the team captain, was spectacular – a true Superstar! D.C. is popping, in many ways. What a time!”Ovechkin likely hadn’t gone to sleep when the tweet was delivered at 4:12 a.m. Las Vegas time and he retweeted it. Next week, Ovechkin will be the star in a parade down Constitution Avenue six months after Trump on inauguration day and this summer will take the Cup back home to Moscow.After that, the next challenge starts. Ovechkin last summer adjusted his training methods in Russia, and he seemed rejuvenated when came back to the Washington area.Now he has to do it all over again with a happily shorter summer.”As you’re getting older, we’re going to have to train a little different so you become the athlete you always have been, because these young kids can absolutely fly,” Trotz said.Ovechkin looked like he was flying all season, from seven goals in his first two games to one on the power play Thursday night in the Cup clincher against the Vegas Golden Knights. But goal-scorers don’t typically keep up this pace – Ovechkin was already the oldest player to finish first in goals since Phil Esposito in 1974-75.”He was very comfortable and he was very confident Greg Pateryn Jersey Womens ,” longtime teammate Nicklas Backstrom said. ”He was really calm. Everything was really good. It’s impressive the way he scores goals and the way he worked out there. He was just a machine there in the playoffs.”Owner Ted Leonsis said recently his only regret about signing Ovechkin to a $124 million, 13-year deal is that it wasn’t longer. With three years left at a salary-cap hit over $9.5 million, Ovechkin has already exceeded the expectations of that monster contract with three Hart Trophies, seven Maurice ”Rocket” Richard Trophies and now the playoff success that had long eluded him.”We worked so hard through all the years and we were together,” Ovechkin said. ”It’s just like a dream.”—More Stanley Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/StanleyCupFinals— NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Pekka Rinne showed no signs of a letdown following his milestone 300th victory.Rinne made 27 saves for his sixth shutout of the season and the Nashville Predators earned a 4-0 victory over the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.The Predators starting goalie moved into 33rd place on the NHL’s career win list, passing former Nashville goalie Tomas Vokoun.The Predators won their fourth straight game and moved into sole possession of first place in the Central Division.The Blues lost their sixth straight.”We scored four goals, but I thought that we had plenty more chances and good looks,” Rinne said.”The biggest thing for me is we did a great job defensively and didn’t give them too much. They have some very good players and had a few good looks but other than that, we did a really good job.”Austin Watson, Colton Sissons Womens Luke Kunin Jersey , Kevin Fiala and Scott Hartnell scored for the Predators. Watson has scored four goals against the Blues in as many games this season.”Maybe I get lucky against the Blues, I don’t know,” Watson said. ”It’s a Central Division opponent. It’s a rivalry game for us. They always have a good team. It’s always a physical battle. I think that gets the juices flowing a little bit.”The Blues have scored just seven goals during their six-game losing streak and have been shut out in consecutive games. Overall, St. Louis has not scored a goal in the past 140:24.”I think we’re obviously a pretty frustrated group right now, having trouble scoring goals,” Blues center Kyle Brodziak said. ”It’s tough. We’ve got to find a way. Whatever it is we need to do – talk about it, work on things – we’ve got to find a way to be better.”The Predators have outscored their opponents 19-5 during their four-game winning streak. Nashville has scored a combined eight goals in the first periods of those games, including two against the Blues on Sunday.Nashville swept the four-game season series from St. Louis, outscoring the Blues 13-4.”We have a pretty good rivalry with them, so any time we can kind of assert our dominance against them, we’re all for it Marcus Foligno Jersey ,” Sissons said. ”We’ve been in some tough battles with them throughout the season and years prior, but it feels good to put them away like that at home.”The Preds grabbed a 1-0 lead just 4:45 into the opening period when Sissons took a pass from Kyle Turris and zipped a short-range wrist shot past Jake Allen.Nashville doubled its advantage with 5:39 left in the first when Fiala hit the 20-goal mark for the first time in his career. Turris carried the puck in deep on a 2-on-1 break, then fired a wrist shot past Allen to the far side.”Full credit to the guys,” Predators coach Peter Laviolette said of the game’s 11 a.m. Central starting time.”It’s a different scenario. You’re waking up early just to eat something that you might not want to eat that early in the morning and getting ready for the game that warmups are starting at 10:30. When the puck dropped, they were ready.”The Blues have found themselves all too often trying to rally during the current losing streak.”We can’t sit around and hope something magical is going to happen,” Blues coach Mike Yeo said. ”We’ve put ourselves in a hole and we’ve got to get ourselves out of it right now. It’s pretty simple.”The way to do that is number one, as coaches, we’ll look to see what we can do adjustment-wise, making any changes we need to make. But ultimately, it’s going to come down to work. That’s the only way.”The Predators struck early in the second period, with Hartnell scoring a goal for the third straight game. Calle Jarnkrok spun near the goal line and sent a pass through the crease to Hartnell http://www.officialwild.com/authentic-adidas-matt-dumba-jersey , who blocked the puck in with his skate.The Predators added a fourth goal later in the period. Watson scored on a short-handed breakaway attempt, putting the Predators ahead 4-0.NOTES: The Predators traded forward Pontus Aberg to Edmonton for forward Mark Letestu, then sent Letestu to Columbus for a fourth-round draft pick. … Predators forward Craig Smith picked up an assist on the team’s second goal, extending his points streak to seven games. He has two goals and five assists during that stretch. … Nashville is expected to add center Mike Fisher back to the roster on Monday. … St. Louis forward Nikita Soshnikov, acquired from Toronto for a fourth-round pick earlier this month, made his debut for the Blues, playing on a line with Alexander Steen and Patrik Berglund.UP NEXT:Blues: At Minnesota on Tuesday night.Predators: At Winnipeg on Tuesday night.—

The Jets lead that series 3-2 heading into Game 6 on Monday night.LIGHTNING 3, BRUINS 1TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Brayden Point and J.T. Miller scored second-period goals, helping Tampa Bay advance to the Eastern Conference final for the third time in four years.Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 27 shots – 14 in the final period – for the Lightning, who rebounded from losing the series opener at home to eliminate the Bruins in five games.David Krejci scored in the final minute of the first period to give Boston a 1-0 lead that Point erased with his unassisted goal at 10:43 of the second.Miller’s power-play goal broke the tie less than four minutes later, and Anton Stralman added an empty-netter with 1:29 remaining to end any chance for a Boston comeback.One day after being put ”on notice” by the NHL for licking Lightning forward Ryan Callahan during Friday night’s overtime loss in Game 4, there were no more such incidents involving Bruins winger Brad Marchand http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/authentic-adidas-oscar-dansk-jersey , who also made headlines after appearing to lick Toronto’s Leo Komarov in the first round.— WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) — The Winnipeg Jets didn’t get down about a two-goal deficit Monday night.Bryan Little tied it late in the third period and Jacob Trouba scored in overtime to help the Jets beat the St. Louis Blues 5-4.Trouba took a pass from Kyle Connor and shot into an open side of the net behind goalie Jake Allen. It was Trouba’s first goal of the season.St. Louis led 3-1 heading into the third before Ben Chiarot and Mark Scheifele got consecutive goals to tie it.“That third period, we pretty much said, ‘Screw it. Let’s have fun and battle and work for each other here,'” Scheifele said. “It turned out. It worked for us.“It just shows that any game is in reach if you play the right way. That third period, we played Winnipeg Jets hockey. We were on the puck, we were working hard. We were battling for each other. That’s how you win games in this league.”David Perron put St. Louis back ahead 1:14 after Scheifele’s tying score with a high shot past goalie Connor Hellebuyck, but Little flipped a rebound past Allen with 1:40 remaining.Ryan O’Reilly had a goal and two assists for St. Louis Authentic Oscar Lindberg Jersey , and Vince Dunn and Colton Parayko also scored.Hellebuyck made 30 saves for Winnipeg (6-2-1), which has points in five straight games (4-0-1).Allen stopped 31 shots for the Blues (2-3-3), who finished a three-game trip (1-1-1) through Canada.It’s the third time this season St. Louis has lost in overtime.“I think we’re scared to lose games right now,” Allen said. “We’re behind in the standings, we know that. We know that each point’s crucial and we’re playing in the third period like we’re scared to lose a game.“If you lose, you lose, but we’ve got to go down swinging. I think we’re just giving teams opportunities, and with a team as good as Winnipeg if we give them chances they’re going to bury them. This loss is on us.”O’Reilly scored 47 seconds into the game and Parayko made it 2-0 before Scheifele got one back 12:07 into the period on a power play. Dunn scored midway through the second on a power play to make it 3-1.“I thought we had a solid two good periods Reilly Smith Jersey ,” Blues forward Pat Maroon said. “I thought we were all over them. They had six shots on net after the first. I mean, we had everything going for us, all the momentum and then something happened.“I don’t know what stopped, but we let it fall behind. But we can’t really focus on that. We’ve got to focus on what we have to do for Thursday. We’ve got to find ways to nip this in the butt and get back to work.”UP NEXTBlues: Begin a season-high seven-game homestand Thursday night against the Blue Jackets.Jets: Wrap up a six-game homestand Wednesday night against the Maple Leafs.
