Against the Saints, Harvin caught three passes for 21 yards and rushed for nine yards on one attempt. The Seahawks traded their 2013 first-round draft pick to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for Harvin during the offseason. Logan Couture Jersey .

The team and Haslett mutually agreed to part ways after five seasons. Haslett spent his first four years with the Redskins under Mike Shanahan and this past season under first-year head coach Jay Gruden.

TORONTO - Players challenging the use of artificial turf at next years Womens World Cup in Canada are pushing to speak to FIFA Secretary-General Jerome Valcke at the tournament draw in Ottawa later this week. Rod Brind Amour Jersey .And they want to discuss goal-line technology and prize money at the showcase soccer tournament as well as the playing surface.The lawyer for the players says if they do not get to speak to the FIFA executive, the entire Australian team will join the rebel faction whose legal challenge over artificial turf is currently before the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario.The players have jumped on Valckes commitment to keeping lines of communication open.We will again welcome open dialogue at the official draw on Dec. 6 in Ottawa, Valcke said in an Oct. 29 article on fifa.com.I personally, will attend (the draw) alongside our pitch expert and medical teams, and I am sure that in this way we will be able to address all concerns and doubts so that all of the participating teams can focus on their preparation for the biggest event in women’s football.A FIFA spokesman subsequently reiterated that Valcke, who will also attend a news conference Friday in Ottawa ahead of Saturdays draw, is willing to talk.The FIFA general secretary is already in contact with players and members associations and will meet with all the team representatives present during his stay on the occasion of the official draw, the spokesperson said in an email to The Canadian Press.Now it appears it is just a question of how.The lawyer representing the players spearheading the legal challenge says stars like American Abby Wambach, Germanys Nadine Angerer, Spains Veronica Boquete, and Brazils Marta cannot be in Ottawa for the draw due to commitments on other continents.They have proposed a conference call Thursday or Sunday.In addition to discussing playing surfaces and goal-line technology, FIFA and CSA (Canadian Soccer Association) can also address any questions the players have about the prize money available for the womens tournament, lawyer Hampton Dellinger wrote in a letter Monday.It is the players hope that these issues can be satisfactorily addressed so that legal action is no longer necessary. However, should the pending case need to go forward, the entire Australian women’s team is prepared to join the over 60 players already participating.The players also offered to add broadcasters and any others you would like to invite including a mediator on the call. FIFA president Sepp Blatter is not scheduled to attend Saturdays draw.The 2015 tournament, to be played from June 6 to July 5 in Moncton, Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver, is to be played exclusively on artificial turf. FIFA argues that the use of the surface is permitted as long as it meets standards and that turf makes sense in the Canadian climate.The women argue in their challenge that making them play on an artificial surface — second-class competition conditions — is discriminatory because the men play their showcase tournament on natural grass.It could well be that sooner rather than later the men’s World Cup will also be played on artificial pitches, Valcke responded in the Oct. 29 article. So far the Human Rights Tribunal has rejected the players request for an expedited hearing, offering early mediation instead. The players accepted but the offer was turned down by the Canadian Soccer Association, which doubles as the national organizing committee for the tournament.The legal team representing the players has tried to expand the debate by bringing in other aspects of the womens tournament that differ from those at the mens World Cup to bolster its discrimination argument.The issue of tournament prize money is the latest to be added to the list.The mens World Cup is FIFAs cash cow.The 32-team tournament in Brazil featured total prize money of US$476 million with Germany receiving $35 million as winner. Teams that did not make it past the group stage each received $8 million.Participating associations also got $1.5 million apiece to help prepare.The total purse of the 2011 womens tournament was $7.6 million with the winning Japan side collecting $1,075,000. Each of the 16 teams received at least $325,000.The 2007 edition of the Womens World Cup was the first to feature prize money.FIFA has yet to confirm whether goal-line technology, used in Brazil, will feature in next years womens event, which will number 24 teams.---Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Carolina Hurricanes Jerseys . - Zac Leslie scored two goals and assisted on two more, and Justin Nichols made 34 saves as the Guelph Storm blanked the Kitchener Rangers 6-0 in Ontario Hockey League action on Sunday.

Moore led two straight touchdown drives in Miamis 20-14 preseason victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday night. "We got into a little bit of a rhythm. Guys were in the right spots, making big plays," said Moore, who completed 13 of 19 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown. "I was just trying to execute plays and maybe questions were answered, I dont know. I was just being me." The Dolphins took advantage of a mistake by Bucs rookie Mike Evans that turned the game around in the second quarter. Evans, the Bucs first-round pick from Texas A&M, caught a short pass from Mike Glennon and after breaking a tackle, sprinted down the sideline toward a 42-yard touchdown which could have given the Bucs a 14-3 lead. After a review of the original touchdown call, however, it was ruled that Miami cornerback Brent Grimes had punched the ball out of Evans hands just before Evans crossed the goal line. The fumble went through the end zone, giving the Dolphins (1-1) the ball. "If its a game that matters, then (Evans) scores because hes learned from it," Bucs quarterback Josh McCown said. "But yeah, he was pretty ticked off at himself." Bucs coach Lovie Smith was also inclined to give the rookie some slack. "I know Mike fumbled the ball, but it was a great play to get it down to there," Smith said. "Hell learn from his mistakes. My rookies are doing too many great things for me to harp on that." Moore, competing with newcomer Brady Quinn for the No. 2 quarterback spot, drove the Dolphins 71 yards to a touchdown in the final 1:41 of the first half. He completed 6 of 8 passes, including a 9-yard touchdown pass to Rishard Matthews thatt gave Miami a 10-7 lead over the Bucs (0-2) with 8 seconds left in the half. Black Bills Jerseys Shop. Moore completed 21-yard passes to Kevin Cone and Armon Binns on Miamis first possession of the second half, part of a nine-play, 71-yard touchdown drive. "(Moore) played well. I thought he threw the ball well," Dolphins coach Joe Philbin said. "Well watch the tape. I thought he had a good game." Rookie running back Damien Williams ran 1 yard for the touchdown that gave Miami a 17-7 lead with 8:58 left in the third quarter. John Potter added a 51-yard field goal that made it 20-7 with 4:30 left in the third. Dolphins starter Ryan Tannehill completed 9 of 14 passes for 110 yards, including a 16-yard completion to Matthews that set up the games first score. Potters 48-yard field goal put the Dolphins up 3-0 with 4:47 left in the first quarter. Tannehill fumbled on the first play of the second quarter while being sacked by Gerald McCoy. Michael Johnson recovered, setting up the Bucs at the Miami 25-yard line. Four plays later, McCown threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Vincent Jackson to give the Bucs a 7-3 lead. The Bucs other touchdown came with 14 seconds left on Mike Kafkas 13-yard pass to Lavelle Hawkins. McCown completed 5 of 7 for 46 yards in three series. Quinn, who signed with the Dolphins on Tuesday, played the final quarter and part of the third, completing all four of his passes for 22 yards. "We felt very good about what he knew going into the game," Philbin said. "The type of game we were in, up by 13 points, it just didnt make a lot of sense to start chucking it a whole lot." NOTES: The Dolphins will play the Dallas Cowboys next Saturday night in their preseason home opener. The Bucs will travel to Buffalo to play the Bills next Saturday. ' ' '

CALGARY -- Pierre Lavertu has an experienced, successful guide on the Calgary Stampeders offensive line. Cheap UCLA Jerseys . Brett Jones was fresh out of university at Calgarys training camp a year ago. The centre from Weyburn, Sask., went on to become the first offensive lineman to be named the Canadian Football Leagues most outstanding rookie. The Stampeders hope Lavertu is also a quick study. Calgary swung a draft-day deal with Ottawa to make the Laval athlete the first overall pick May 13. The 24-year-old from Quebec City played centre for the Rouge et Or, but with Jones so successful at that position in 2013, Lavertu has worked most of the pre-season at guard. Jones may be two years younger than Lavertu, but hes helping usher the older rookie into professional football. "Hes given me advice and helped me during meetings. He sits behind me," Lavertu said Tuesday at McMahon Stadium. "Brett is an inspiration for me because he did everything well. He has great technique, good footwork, he knows everything thats happening on the field." Jon Gott, who was dealt to the expansion Redblacks for the first pick in the draft, and the retired Dimitri Tsoumpas mentored Jones in his first year in the league, so Jones wants to pay it forward. "They just made sure I was welcomed into the group," Jones said. "Were known as a unit. I just want whats best for the offensive line." Lavertu, who is six foot three and 298 pounds, won three Vanier Cups and was a three-time CIS all-star with Laval. He was surprised Calgary drafted him because of Jones, but Lavertu is also excited at the prospect of blocking for star running back Jon Cornish. "If they want me to play guard, Im going to play guard," Lavertu said. "Its the opportunity theyve given to me. Im going to take it and do the best I can to be successful at right guard. "We have Jon Cornish and a lot of good running backs. I love to run-block for him. When you run the ball like that and control the clock like that, you are going to win." Lavertu played right guard in the first half and returned to centre for the second when Jones came out of Saturdays pre-season win over the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. Calgary rushed for 193 yards in a 23-20 victory. The Stampeders are in Vancouver to face the Lions in another pre-season game Friday. Calgary hosts Montreal in their regular-season opener June 28. As Jones did, Lavertu must adapt to the quicker pace of the pro game as well the calibre of the oppositions defensive line. "Theres a lot more things hes responsible for and the talent hes going against every play is equal (to him) or better," Calgary offensive line coach Pat DelMonaco said. "You have to factor in some of them have five, six or seven years of experience." The six-foot-two, 321-pound Jones says Lavertu makes the same errors he did in his early days as a Stampeder. "I made a ton of mistakes," Jones said. "Youre going to make mistakes and its just not making the same mistake twice. "Hes doing great. This offence isnt that easy. You can just see hes making those changes and just making those improvements to get better. Whenever he gets a chance to play, Im excited to play beside him and hope the best for him." Cheap Lonzo Ball UCLA Jersey . The Americans, skipped by John Shuster, seized the advantage in the eighth end by scoring five points for a 7-3 lead. The Czechs pulled two back in the ninth, but Shusters team of third Jeff Isaacson, second Jared Zezel and lead John Landsteiner ended with another point to secure the last Olympic berth on offer. Cheap Authentic College Jerseys . "Youre not really spending time to sit back and analyze what your competitions doing and things like that," Anthopoulos said. "Youre so focused on what were trying to get done." Ultimately, while the landscape around them changed with trades both major and minor, the Blue Jays did nothing before Thursdays non-waiver deadline. http://www.ncaajerseyscheap.com/ . Phoenix originally signed Barbosa to a 10-day contract on Jan. 8 after Eric Bledsoe injured his knee and then signed him to another 10-day deal.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Another week, another round of Gronk questions. And another few days before it becomes clearer whether the New England Patriots star tight end might make his 2013 debut Sunday. Rob Gronkowski has missed all five games while recovering from off-season surgeries on his left forearm and back. But hes getting closer to playing and that could happen against the unbeaten New Orleans Saints on Sunday, which should help the Patriots struggling offence. A person with knowledge of Gronkowskis health says doctors havent cleared him to play yet and wont know for a few days. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no official announcement was made. Gronkowski participated in practice on a limited basis on Wednesday. ProFootballTalk.com reported Tuesday that he is expected to be cleared to play this week and that its likely but not definite that hell play. Gronkowski has been asked about his status on Wednesdays throughout the season. But hes shed little light on when he might return, saying repeatedly hes taking it "day by day." He skipped this weeks media availability Wednesday and was expected to speak Thursday. Quarterback Tom Brady and coach Bill Belichick also get peppered with questions about when Gronkowski will return but provide little insight. "Whenever that happens, who knows?" Brady said Wednesday. "I feel like Ive kind of talked about it a lot the past five weeks. If he is there, hes there. If hes not, hes not. Were going to try to win anyway." Belichick answered several questions about Gronkowski on Wednesday. His response to three of them: "day to day." And how did he look in practice? "He practiced," Belichick said. The interest in Gronkowski has intensified as Brady and the Patriots offence have been inconsistent. But the team is 4-1, so rushing Gronkowski back hasnt been imperative. And the Patriots are still favourites to win the AFC East even though Miami (3-2) and the New York Jets (3-2) are off to decent starts. That said, the Patriots are 24th in the NFL in scoring after leading the league last year. Brady is 22nd in passer rating after ranking sixth in 2012. So, clearly, Gronkowski, who has 187 catches in his 43 ggames with the Patriots, would help, especially in the red zone. College Jerseys From China. After all, this season, New England tight ends have five receptions -- total. "When you get down in the red zone, you want to score a touchdown," rookie receiver Kenbrell Thompkins said. "You dont want to score three points. Sometimes when you score three points, it can hurt you and, unfortunately, thats what cost us in the Cincinnati game." The Patriots reached the red zone just once in last Sundays 13-6 loss to the Bengals but settled for a field goal after getting a first down at the 1-yard line. "Whoever is out there, whatever personnel, every play is designed to make positive yards, and a lot of them are designed to score touchdowns," Brady said. "But they dont always do that, so were trying to figure out how to do that and do better than what weve done the first five weeks." The 6-foot-6 Gronkowski could make a huge difference with his strong hands, ability to shield the ball from defenders and skill at reaching for passes with his long arms. The Patriots didnt put him on the physically unable to perform list at the start of the season. That would have required him to miss the first six games and barred him from practice. He hasnt missed a practice since the season began and could be back for the sixth game on Sunday. He was listed as questionable for the past three games after being doubtful for the previous two. The final injury report comes out after Fridays practice. "Hes a beast, man. I cant wait to see him, whenever he gets backs," receiver Aaron Dobson said. "Being out there practicing with him kind of gives you a feel of being out there but in a game ... it could be different." Gronkowski is also a quality safety valve, a player Brady can dump the ball off to when pressured. "Hes got a lot of excitement and brings a lot of energy to the team. Hes a great player," Brady said. "Im just kind of waiting like everyone else. Whenever it is, it is. Were 4-1. Weve won four games without him. If he is not there this week, weve got to try to go 5-1 anyway. "Hopefully, when he does get back out there, we will be more productive." ' ' '

Definitely my brain wasnt reacting well." Nowitzki led a 10-0 run, sandwiching 3-pointers around a basket by Carter, to put Dallas back in front 99-89. A 3-pointer by Carter extended the Mavs lead to 104-93. Dallas clamped down on Chris Paul and Griffin for a stretch before the Clippers got hot. Paul finished with 17 points and nine assists.

DeAndre Jordan added 21 points and 15 rebounds, and Collison had 22 points for the Clippers. "We just ran out of time," Paul said. "We waited too long. Its a tough loss because we could have found a way to win." The Clippers rallied to start the third, using a 13-7 run to take a 69-65 lead. Jordan scored six points and four others scored. But their lead was short-lived. Dallas outscored the Clippers 21-12 to end the third leading 86-81.

DENVER -- Wes Welkers receiving stats over a productive NFL career are impressive. Wholesale Jaguars Jerseys . Still, theres another set of numbers associated with him that cannot be ignored: three concussions, nine months. Cleared to play following his third diagnosed concussion since November, the Broncos receiver will get back in a game Sunday, when Denver travels to Seattle for a Super Bowl rematch. Welkers suspension for testing positive for amphetamines in the off-season was cut in half when the NFL and the union agreed to a revamped drug policy. Still, the comeback feels a bit rushed, with the potential for life-altering consequences if the next big hit the 33-year-old takes to the head winds up being his last. "We know that having multiple concussions is not good," said Dr. Julian Bailes, clinical professor of neurosurgery at the University of Chicago and a member of the NFL Players Associations concussion committee, who noted that all sorts of factors must be taken into account on an individual basis. "Its not necessarily career-ending. ... A contact-sport athlete whos had multiple concussions in a short period of time does risk further concussions and risks that it becomes a season- or career-ending proposition if they return to play." Welker returns less than a month since leaving an Aug. 23 preseason game after a hit to the head. On Wednesday, he said hed been medically cleared to play in the past week or so. But his drug suspension delayed his comeback by at least a game, a layoff he said was probably for the best. He has heard ongoing debate about his future -- whether an 11-year NFL veteran whos earned more than US$20 million along with a reputation as one of the games best slot receivers should even bother playing anymore. "I appreciate their concern, I really do," said Welker, who has 841 catches for 9,358 yards. "But at the same time, I feel great. I feel sharp and I feel ready to go." An NFL players assessment of his own health is one of the most important factors in determining when he returns. Its also a reason the NFL has no hard-and-fast rules about saying, for instance, that three concussions in less than 12 months should rule a player out. "It would create a tremendous disincentive to report that third concussion," says Chris Nowinski, a driving force behind research on the topic. "You really want to leave the decision in the hands of a great doctor and an honest patient and let them make the best decision for that athlete." The 5-foot-9, 185-pound Welker has been going over the middle and taking punishment for decades -- in high school, at Texas Tech, and with three NFL teams. But he passed the NFLs revamped return-to-play protocols established in 2009; independent doctors cleared him to play after comparing his brain function to the "baseline" numbers established in pre-training camp tests that look at memory, concentration and other cognitive functions. It is an inexact, still-evolving science, but the doctors say hes ready to be back on the field, using a new, bigger helmet. Ultimately, its a decision every player with a head injury makes for himself. Former Titans tight end Frank Wycheck got two concussions in the span of a month in 2003, missed six games, then finished the season. But Wycheck then made the difficult decision to retire, even though he was under contract and had the talent to continue playing. Like Wycheck, Welker is still in search of a Super Bowl ring. "The physical stuff you cant hide from," Wycheck said. "If you have lingering effects and you go back into a game, from all my reading and studying on it, ... it could prove to be fatal. And I would hate for him to put himself in that situation just to chase a ring." A ring. Fame. Money. Fans. Teammates. That all drives players to keep going, even when common sense dictates otherwise. "You dont want to let your teammates down," said Dr. Alex Valadka, who consults Major League Baseball and is the CEO of the Seton Brain and Spine Institute. "It doesnt matter if youre somebody whos sitting on a bench as a third-stringer or youre a star athlete making millions and millions a year." There is a growing and persuasive catalogue of the devastation head injuries can cause: suicides by ex-players such as Junior Seau and Dave Duerson, whose brains revealed signs of a disease associated with multiple concussions; last week, data released by the NFL in connection with concussion lawsuits estimated that nearly three in 10 retired players would be expected to develop Alzheimers disease or at least moderate dementia. "If you have an ankle injury and you rehab it and youre 100 per cent, then you should be allowed to return to play," said Richard Figler, co-medical director of the Cleveland Clinic Concussion Center. "With a brain injury, the question is: Is that 100 per cent the true 100 per cent?" The full extent of brain trauma in a player such as Welker might not be known for years, yet its a risk he -- and hundreds more in the NFL, too -- are willing to take. "You dont know if the next one will be the one that causes years of headaches or will still allow you to bounce back," Nowinksi said. "Its hard to make a decision on when to stop."

James was driving to the rim in the first quarter and McLemore decided to try to take the charge, which was quite admirable and predictably futile. Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Authentic . Off-Season Game Plan examines a team facing some challenging times as GM Bryan Murray tries to put together a roster for next season.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- After sleep-walking through the first half, the Grizzlies managed to wake up in time to claim their fifth straight victory at home. Zach Randolph had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and Memphis used a big second half to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers 110-96 Saturday night. "Coach just stated the obvious -- that we cant let a team come in here and dominate us on both ends of the court," Memphis guard Mike Conley said of Dave Joergers halftime speech. "We just went out there and tried to be aggressive defensively." Randolph had 17 points in the second half to help Memphis outscore Cleveland 56-31 and rally from an early 15-point deficit. Conley and Marc Gasol scored 22 each for the Grizzlies. Conley added seven assists and Gasol had six. Courtney Lee finished with 19 points, including a career-high five 3-pointers, and Tony Allen had 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting. "Sometimes its just him getting himself going," Gasol said of Randolph in the second half. "Hes so hard to stop that no matter what they try to do its just Zach being Zach." Kyrie Irving led the Cavaliers with 28 points on 11-of-19 shooting, while Tristan Thompson was 8 of 10 for 18 points. Spencer Hawes had 13 points and Luol Deng 11. "Guys are going to make runs," Irving said. "They made their run. They had a hit-first mentality going into that second half." Memphis took control with its big third quarter and led by 91-83 with 8:56 left in the fourth. The Cavaliers used six straight points from Irving to pull within 95-94 with 4:03 left. But a baseline 8-footer by Randolph and a 3-pointer from Conley restored Memphis cushion. By the time Gasol scored on a hook shot with 1:13 left the Grizzlies lead was in double digits. "It was effort, energy and ffocus," Joerger said of the second-half effort that held the Cavaliers to 34 per cent shooting. Cheap Jerseys From China. ".We were making one, two or three efforts. The energy picked up, and we made multiple efforts. They didnt have a lot of second chances." The Cavaliers dominated the first half, leading by as many as 15 points and taking a 65-54 lead into the break. The Grizzlies provided little resistance and Cleveland shot just under 70 per cent for much of the half before going to the locker room at 61 per cent. "In the first half we were the ones who were more physical," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "We were the ones hitting first." The energy and intensity increased for Memphis to open the second half and that translated into a 21-8 run to overtake Cleveland just past the midway point of the third. At that point, Cleveland had committed five turnovers in the quarter. Memphis would stretch the run to 26-8, including 17 straight points, for an 80-73 lead that became an 87-80 advantage entering the final frame. "There were positives from it," Irving said. "We fought hard to the end with the exception of the last 3 minutes. We can live with the effort." NOTES: Irving has scored at least 20 points in 17 of last 23 games. ... The Cavaliers 65 points in the first half were the most scored by a Memphis opponent in a half this season. The previous high was 62 in the second half by Dallas on Nov. 2. ... Gasol hit a shot at the end of the first quarter from beyond half court and banked it in. It was shown on the score sheet as 60 feet. It was his first 3-pointer of the season. ...

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. Air Jordan 5 Wholesale . -- Penn State coach Patrick Chambers didnt think it was the matchup or the fact that it was Senior Night that allowed his Nittany Lions to beat Ohio State again. No, it was something more basic. "I think we were mad," Chambers said, emphasizing that his team had been thumped by Iowa and Nebraska in its previous two games. "It just happened to be Ohio State tonight. We came out and played desperate and with a sense of urgency. And we played angry." D.J. Newbill scored 23 points, Tim Frazier added 16 and Penn State held off a late rally by No. 22 Ohio State for a 65-63 victory Thursday. The Buckeyes (22-7, 9-7 Big Ten) had a chance to win at the end. Coming out of a timeout with 6.8 seconds left, Lenzelle Smith Jr.s 3-pointer rimmed out. The Nittany Lions (14-14, 5-10) grabbed the rebound and time expired. Ohio State was led by LaQuinton Ross, who scored 19 points. Aaron Craft, plagued by foul trouble most of the game, added 10. "It was one of those games where two guys pound the ball off the backboard and it bounces out and they make a 3 on us," Ohio State coach Thad Matta said. "Little things like that is kind of the way the game went." Penn State swept the season series. The Nittany Lions upset then-No. 23 Ohio State 71-70 in overtime on Jan. 29 in Columbus.

After Ross made two more free throws, Shannon Scott stole the inbounds pass and passed to Trey McDonald for a layup that cut it to 64-63. Penn State missed two free throws on the ensuing possession, but Smiths shot caromed off the rim and over the backboard, giving the Nittany Lions the ball back with under 10 seconds left. Frazier was fouled and made one of two at the line, setting up Smiths last-second attempt from 3-point range. "When we executed what we were supposed to do, it was amazing what happened. We didnt have the flow that we normally do," Matta said. "That was the difference. We talked about it and talked about it. We couldnt get it to where we needed it." Frazier, a senior point guard, was recognized before the game as part of Senior Night festivities. He is one of 10 finalists for the Senior CLASS Award, given annually to a student-athlete with notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition. Frazier will leave Penn State as the schools career leader in assists. Frazier acknowledged that his uneven play early was due to the emotions and nerves of the night. "It was very emotional. I was basically trying to hold back tears in the beginning. Obviously you tell at the beginning of the game I had so many emotions running through me. Turnovers left and right. Airballs," he said. Chambers was happy to see a player who has meant so much to the program get a win on such a special night. "Hes an amazing kid. A man now. Hes a man," Chambers said. "Its Senior Night. Youve got family there. Youve got one game left in this building. Youve been here five years. Youve invested time and energy. He puts so much into this program.

The Minnesota Wild have been thriving lately on the road to keep pace in the Central Division. After smothering the Rangers 4-1 Calvin De Haan Jersey Womens , they completed a three-game sweep in the New York area.Mikael Granlund and Eric Staal each scored twice and Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves in the Wild’s victory over the free-falling New York Rangers on Friday night. The Wild also beat the Islanders on Monday night and New Jersey on Thursday night.”Well, it obviously means getting six points, but we have never done that before,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. ”Anytime you do something you haven’t done before, it’s pretty cool.”The Rangers lost for the sixth straight time in regulation. New York is 6-17-0 since beating Buffalo in the Winter Classic on Jan. 1.”In my mind, we worked hard. We just weren’t able to make the plays that we needed to make to get something out of that,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said.Granlund opened the scoring for Minnesota at 16:06 of the first period after Staal intercepted a terrible breakout pass attempt by Rangers defenseman Anthony DeAngelo. Staal passed to Granlund, who easily put the puck past rookie netminder Alexandar Georgiev.Georgiev played his second NHL game after making his debut Thursday night in a 3-1 loss at Montreal.Staal made it 2-0 at 18:43. The goal was originally credited to Granlund but was changed to Staal late in the third period.The Rangers narrowed the deficit to 2-1 when Jesper Fast scored his ninth of the season at 2:41 of the second.Staal made it 3-1 for the visitors 52 seconds into the third period with a power-play goal – his team-leading 29th – of the season. Defenseman Ryan Suter and Granlund had assists.Eric Staal had a short stint with the Rangers two seasons ago, joining his brother Marc in New York but only recording only three goals in 20 games and none in the playoffs.”There’s always motivation every night,” Eric Staal said. ”You always want to prove yourself. Tonight was one of those nights we caught them with some great plays and we were fortunate to be able to capitalize.”Granlund, made it 4-1 at 9:22 of the third with his 17th goal of the season.”Obviously Womens Deryk Engelland Jersey , it’s always nice to score,” said the 25-year-old Finnish forward who was drafted ninth overall by the Wild in 2010. ”It’s nice to get some offense going.”Minnesota is 6-1-2 in its last eight games. The Wild are in playoff position in a tight Central Division race.Rangers forward Rick Nash didn’t dress for the second straight game. The 33-year-old Nash, whose contract expires after this season, is expected to be traded by Monday’s deadline.He has 18 goals and 10 assists this season and is one point shy of 800 for his career. Nash scored against the Flyers in last Sunday’s 7-4 home loss. He was also a healthy scratch for Thursday’s loss at Montreal.The Rangers traded forward Michael Grabner – their leading goal scorer – to the Devils late Thursday after sending defenseman Nick Holden to the Boston Bruins earlier in the week.The Rangers are facing late-season games without playoff-race meaning for the first time since 2004 when they also made numerous deadline trades. They have only missed the playoffs once since 2005-06, in 2010 when the Rangers missed out on the last day of the season in a shootout loss at Philadephia.”We’re in a results-oriented business,” Vigneault added. ”The effort and preparation is there. We just have to stay with it.”NOTES: Forward Chris Kreider returned for the Rangers after missing 24 games with blood clot in right arm. Kreider last played Dec. 27 against Washington. … The Wild are 4-7-0 at Madison Square Garden … Minnesota scratched forward Chris Stewart and defensemen Jonas Brodin and Gustav Olofsson … The Rangers continued to be without injured defensemen Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan McDonagh and Steven Kampfer.UP NEXT:Wild: Host San Jose on Sunday night.Rangers: Host Detroit on Sunday night. RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Gabriel Landeskog is so hot right now even he can’t quite explain it.Landeskog scored twice to give him six goals in three games, Nathan MacKinnon added a goal and two assists and the Colorado Avalanche beat the Carolina Hurricanes 3-1 on Saturday.Landeskog, fresh off a hat trick against New Jersey, opened the scoring late in the first period and added another goal midway through the second. His seven goals through eight games this season are tied for third most in the NHL.“I don’t know http://www.officialknightsproshop.com/au...eal-jersey , obviously a lot of luck,” said Landeskog, who has a point in four straight games. “But at the same time you’re getting in the scoring areas and skating and working hard and a lot of it is just kind of coincidence. You happen to be in the right place at the right time.”MacKinnon scored late in the third and assisted on both of Landeskog’s goals for the Avalanche. Philipp Grubauer stopped 42 shots.Micheal Ferland scored and Curtis McElhinney made 19 saves for the Hurricanes, who have lost three straight after a 4-0-1 start.Carolina outshot Colorado 43-22 but still came out on the losing end. The Hurricanes have outshot their opponents in all three games during their losing streak.“I think our game is there, it’s just a matter of getting a couple bounces here or there,” Hurricanes coach Rod Brind’Amour said. “You just don’t want the losses to bleed and make you feel like we’re not playing that well, when really in my opinion we’re playing pretty well. A bounce here or there, you’re talking about a whole different situation.”Landeskog provided a jolt at the end of a sluggish first period. With both teams seemingly out of their element with a 1 p.m. local start time, opportunities were few until Landeskog and MacKinnon hooked up with 3:21 left.After a rush down the ice Landeskog took a backhanded pass from MacKinnon at the left faceoff circle, and the Avalanche captain slipped the puck in between the near post and McElhinney’s blocker.“(Our line), we’ve been playing well Jonathan Marchessault Jersey ,” MacKinnon said. “We had a decent first five or six games but not great, so I think the last two or three have been awesome. We’re controlling the play a lot more. We just got some chances and took so advantage.”Landeskog was the only player to score in the second. With Colorado on the power play after Andrei Svechnikov went off for slashing, Landeskog’s centering pass from the left circle deflected off Carolina forward Jordan Martinook’s leg and back onto Landeskog’s tape. With McElhinney out of position, Landeskog buried the redirected puck into the open left side of the net to double the Avalanche lead.MacKinnon added insurance with a wrist shot over McElhinney’s glove with 3:09 to go in the third. The Hurricanes avoided the shutout when Ferland slipped in a goal with 2:33 left.“We’re getting a lot of quality chances,” Brind’Amour said. “The difference for me is you give their grade A players an inch and it goes in the back of the net. We’re not quite there yet. We seem to need a few more chances to get those to go.”This was Grubauer’s second win in three starts with Colorado. He robbed Svechnikov point blank, stopped a tricky redirect from Teuvo Teravainen, swatted Ferland’s backhand attempt on a breakaway and stonewalled Martinook’s one-timer in front of the net, all in the first two periods.Grubauer’s best came late in the third when he gloved Justin Williams’ deflected slap shot from the left faceoff circle with 5:54 to go.“Without the way he played we wouldn’t have won this hockey game,” Landeskog said. “He was outstanding. Honestly, it was one of the better goalie performances I’ve seen in a long time.”NOTES: The Avalanche have scored a power-play goal in seven of eight games this season. … Colorado D Tyson Barrie had an assist to tie Sandis Ozolinsh for third place among franchise defenseman with 254 points. … Hurricanes F Sebastian Aho assisted on Ferland’s goal to extend his point streak to eight games to open the season. … Carolina C Clark Bishop made his NHL debut after being recalled from Charlotte (AHL). … Saturday was Avalanche C Colin Wilson’s 29th birthday..The Avalanche scratched D Mark Barberio and C Marko Dano. … The Hurricanes scratched F Phillip Di Giuseppe.UP NEXTAvalanche: Conclude four-game road trip at Philadelphia on Monday.Hurricanes: Visit Detroit on Monday before returning home for three-game homestand.
