Every week, The Walking Dead’s very <a href="http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/marcandre-fleury-c-1_19.html">http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/marcandre-fleury-c-1_19.html</a> own Josh McDermitt, who plays Dr. Eugene Porter, is taking EW behind the scenes of the hit AMC horror series. For each episode, McDermitt will share his thoughts on what went down and what’s coming up, plus walk us through the ins and outs of the show. This week, McDermitt dives into “The King, the Widow, and Rick.” “The King, the Widow, and Rick” was the sixth installment of The Walking Dead for this season. John Polson directed, with Angela Kang and Corey Reed on writing duties, and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Carl (Chandler Riggs) took off to find the guy he encountered in episode 1 while out with his dad. He found the dude, and his name is Siddiq. Siddiq (Avi Nash) told Carl a story about his mom killing the walkers to release their souls and Carl joined in the fun. It was nice of Carl; always the good guy. Siddiq seems like he’s an all right dude, but in this world, you never know. I will say something about him seems off…like his hair is parted on the wrong side or something. I’m sure we’ll get to the bottom of this guy in the coming episodes. My favorite moment of the night was when Rosita (Christian Serratos) fired a bazooka at a Savior and blew him to bits. I was on set that day and remembered watching Christian grip this rocket launcher that weighed as much as she does and fire it off. I mean, I didn’t like the fact the Saviors lost another soldier (GO SAVIORS!), but it was still dandy to see that kill. I like to go to the set and watch cool scenes in the episode. Anytime you can catch Danai Gurira in a sword fight you must drop everything and observe. She’s an artist with that katana and very enjoyable to watch. Plus, there’s tons of snacks on set, so…bonus. I’m loving the fierce leadership Maggie (Lauren Cohan) is bringing to the table. I feel like she’s making sound, moral, and merciful decisions, but there’s a healthy dose of DON’T SCREW WITH MAGGIE. I love it. And for my money, there’s no better dynamic on the show right now than Gregory (Xander Berkeley) and “Margaret.” I could watch a whole season of those two going at it. It’s interesting to put yourself in the characters’ shoes and situation and ask, “What would I do?” Would I be like Jesus (Tom Payne) and not want to kill any of the Savior POWs? Would I be like Morgan (Lennie James) and lose my mind and want everyone dead? Would I get impatient like Michonne (Gurira) and Rosita and go off to end this thing once and for all? Or would I be like <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/tomas-nosek-c-1_8.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/tomas-nosek-c-1_8.html</a> Daryl (Norman Reedus) and Tara (Alanna Masterson) who are also trying to end this thing by capitalizing on an opportunity to do some damage? It’s tough to say. Each character has a solid argument for their actions. Even Rick going back to the garbage heap — I don’t know what is going on there or if it’s a part of the bigger plan, but I do know that Andrew Lincoln in his underwear, as we’ve seen in the preview for next week’s episode, and playing in the trash is doing nothing to help his nickname of Stinky Linky. Absolutely nothing.
Mats Zuccarello might be the most tenacious <a href="http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/jannik-hansen-jersey-c-1_10.html">http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/jannik-hansen-jersey-c-1_10.html</a> player in the NHL, though he hardly looks the part. His curly, shoulder-length hair and disarming half-grin suggest that the winger is a laid-back type -- rather than the hard-nosed heart of the New York Rangers. Then there's his physical stature. At 5-foot-8 (he was listed at 5-foot-7 his first few years in the league) and 179 pounds, Zuccarello swims in his uniform like it's an oversized pair of basketball shorts and his dad's old sweater. That is especially apparent when he's tussling with a towering defenseman such as the Tampa Bay Lightning's Victor Hedman, which he did earlier this month, even goading the 6-foot-6 Hedman into some after-the-whistle shoving. But consider how many obstacles Zuccarello had to overcome just to get here: Growing up in Norway, he was told he'd never make it as a pro. Scouts who saw him play in the Swedish Elite League believed he was too small for the NHL. Even after he signed with New York as a free agent in 2010, he wasn't a lock to make the Rangers' roster. When asked about Zuccarello's prospects during the winger's first training camp, then-Rangers general manager Glen Sather chuckled and, according to the New York Post, quoted a poem: "'Ten thousand Swedes ran through the weeds, chased by one Norwegian.' We'll see. He's in the same boat as everyone else." Zuccarello is now the only Norwegian in the NHL, and he is his country's all-time leading scorer. Consider also what Zuccarello has overcome since he arrived on Broadway: During Game 5 of the 2015 Eastern Conference quarterfinals, a slap shot off the stick of teammate Ryan McDonagh careened into Zuccarello's helmet. The winger was rushed to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with a fractured skull and brain contusion. He remained hospitalized for three days, lost feeling in his left arm and couldn't speak for four days. "I still have effects from it," Zuccarello said. "My talking is <a href="http://www.corsexe.com/jason-garrison-c-1_7.html">http://www.corsexe.com/jason-garrison-c-1_7.html</a> a little bit off when I get tired or I talk fast. I kind of stumble on words. Some words are harder than others. It is what it is. I'm from Norway anyway, so they don't expect me to speak perfect English."
It's Friday, Nov. 24, and Holtmann is preparing for <a href="http://www.babewest.com/james-van-riemsdyk-jersey-c-1_35.html">http://www.babewest.com/james-van-riemsdyk-jersey-c-1_35.html</a> the sixth game of his Ohio State career. In a few hours, he's got Stanford. Holtmann is not oh-my-gosh-ing about his Buckeyes in this moment, though. He's sitting in a multi-room suite that overlooks much of the scenic contrast of Portland's distinct landscape: chic urban streets clash with neo-hipster culture and an abundance of food trucks; hilly, high-forest vistas are backdrop to greater Portland's topography. The Willamette River splits the city into east and west. It's a sensational sight from the 22nd floor of the Hilton Portland Downtown. Holtmann and his team finished film review earlier, followed by walkthroughs of their offensive sets in a bottom-floor ballroom at the hotel. The first-year Buckeyes coach allowed CBS Sports total access during the PK80 Invitational, college basketball's biggest early-season event over Thanksgiving weekend. But now the 46-year-old Holtmann has brought me up to his suite while he does some more game prep. As we talk, Holtmann occasionally stops mid-sentence and chirps at the 65-inch television. Butler's playing. Those who still wear scorn on their skin have taken to calling him "Boltmann." Holtmann is lampooned by some Butler fans after he left in the middle of June for one of the best jobs in the sport. Talk truthfully to other college basketball coaches, and you'll find there are few who wouldn't have done what Holtmann did if they were in his position. His Ohio State contract is for eight years and hovers in the range of $3 million annually. But in this era of social media, for a program that had lost four other coaches to higher profile jobs in the 2000s, those numbers don't take away the sting. The backlash has bothered Holtmann in the months since he left. He tries to avoid checking his Twitter mentions. Someone sent a piercing <a href="http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/keith-magnuson-jersey-c-1_45.html">http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/keith-magnuson-jersey-c-1_45.html</a> piece of snail mail, shipping him an envelope with a $1 bill inside. As Holtmann peeks at his folder with prep for Stanford, he keeps an eye on Butler's game. He's downing Riesens while watching the Bulldogs play a close one vs. Portland State.

La présence du gardien des Oilers d'Edmonton <a href="http://www.eraneta.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_35.html">http://www.eraneta.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_35.html</a> Cam Talbot face aux Maple Leafs de Toronto est incertaine en raison d'une blessure au haut du corps. L'entraîneur-chef Todd McLellan a annoncé que Talbot, qui a raté l'entraînement de mercredi, s'était blessé lors de la victoire en prolongation de l'équipe, mardi. Talbot a repoussé 29 des 31 lancers dirigés vers lui, augmentant son pourcentage d'arrêts à 90,3% depuis le début de la saison. Talbot connaît un début de saison difficile, lui qui montre un dossier de 10 victoires contre 10 revers et une défaite en prolongation. Talbot affiche également une moyenne de buts alloués de 3,00 par match en 22 départs. Tout indique que les Oilers se tourneront vers Laurent Brossoit si Talbot n'est pas en mesure de protéger le filet des siens. Les statistiques de Brossoit ne sont guère plus intéressantes lui qui présente un taux d'efficacité de 0,881 et une moyenne de <a href="http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/jake-bischoff-c-1_20.html">http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/jake-bischoff-c-1_20.html</a> buts alloués de 3,31.

Since Canadians and Americans <a href="http://www.e666e.com/jesper-fast-jersey-c-1_6.html">http://www.e666e.com/jesper-fast-jersey-c-1_6.html</a> share a border, it’s important for Americans to know and understand a little bit about their neighbors. From a national census conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2012, of the 40.8 million immigrants that came to the U.S. in search of a better life for their children, eight hundred thousand Canadians accounted for 2 percent of that total population. And according to Statistics Canada, Canadian residents took almost twenty million overnight trips to the United States in 2010, up 11.1 percent from 2009. In other words, Canadians and Americans cross paths on a daily basis, so knowing the character of the people north of your border can help you in a variety of ways. Maybe you want to take a trip up here or maybe you know a Canadian who’s new in town and want to know more about them. Whatever your reason, here are some of the most basic traits you should know about your Canadian neighbors. 1. We are polite and nice, to a fault: TOO TRUE Canadians are notorious for their politeness and niceness. If you find yourself in a grocery store in Canada, the classic line you’ll hear from Canadians when they want to move through a tight aisle is “just gonna sneak past you there.” Sometimes, there’ll be enough room to fit two trucks, yet Canadians will still say “excuse me” to avoid alarming their neighbor casually looking at the canned goods section. In fact, most Canucks are so polite that if you bump into one, they will probably apologize for standing in your walking space. When in doubt, Canadians err on the side of apologizing rather to avoid conflict. For example, one time in seventh grade, in elementary school, I was leaving the school library with a group of friends. The library was a mess—chairs untucked, books haphazardly opened, garbage covering on the ground. So, as I leave the library with my friends, I bumped into a chair and, low and behold, I not only spoke to the chair, but apologized to the damn thing for being in my way. As my story illustrates, Canadians will apologize to anything, even inanimate objects responsible for their pain. Even though my friends roared with laughter, one of them dared to admit to me that they, too, had apologized to a chair once. It’s a moment I’ve come to accept and laugh over, but I can safely say that although my apologizing-to-chairs days are well behind me, the willingness to apologize first in a conflict of interest is still ever-present and has kept me out of trouble in my relationships with others. While the sheer amount of apologizing that Canadians do can get annoying, the tendency at least shows that Canadians are willing to apologize first in the event of a conflict. So, if you ever get into a fight with a Canadian, at least you <a href="http://www.eraneta.com/marcandre-fleury-c-1_29.html">http://www.eraneta.com/marcandre-fleury-c-1_29.html</a> know it will have a quick end, for the most part. 2. Canadians love poutine and maple syrup: TRUE If you don’t, are you even Canadian? A delicacy perfected time and time again by the Québécois, Canadians love the gooey goodness of French fries covered in melted cheese curds and gravy sauce. I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve had poutine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, on separate occasions of course; it’s just that versatile of a meal. Poutine, a Québécois slang word originally meaning “mess,” is a fitting name for the dish! While there is difficulty in agreeing on an origin story for the unruly delight, most agree that the dish comes from the rural part of Québec rather than the city.
The final victory of the weekend <a href="http://www.news4pal.com/phil-esposito-jersey-c-1_25.html">http://www.news4pal.com/phil-esposito-jersey-c-1_25.html</a> was the seventh straight success for Toronto, tying a franchise record. Their 16-4-0 record leads the AHL and provides them with a seven-point cushion at the top of the North Division. Toronto’s record against divisional rivals improved to 11-1-0 and their current +30 goal differential and 1.85 goals-against-average lead the AHL in both categories. Toronto’s penalty kill continues to prove ultra reliable, allowing just one goal against on the 20 occasions they went to work in the past five games. It’s now ranked second best in the league at 89.5% and also recorded its third shorthanded goal (tied for fourth best in the league). The Marlies power play struck five times but still relied on moments of individual brilliance and also gave up shorthanded goals in consecutive games. Despite continuing to draw the most <a href="http://www.officialrangersshop.com/jeff-beukeboom-jersey-c-1_16.html">http://www.officialrangersshop.com/jeff-beukeboom-jersey-c-1_16.html</a> man-advantage opportunities in the league (114), Toronto’s power play is registering at 14.9% (22nd in the AHL).
Ann Arbor, Mich. • Dwayne Haskins replaced <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/keegan-kolesar-c-1_3.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/keegan-kolesar-c-1_3.html</a> injured star J.T. Barrett in the third quarter and No. 8 Ohio State rallied to beat Michigan 31-20, the Buckeyes' sixth straight win in the rivalry. The Buckeyes (10-2, 8-1 Big Ten) head to the conference championship game next week to face No. 5 Wisconsin, with hopes of making the College Football Playoff. The Wolverines (8-4, 5-4) have lost 13 of 14 to Ohio State, including the last three with coach Jim Harbaugh. Michigan was relegated to starting John O'Korn because Brandon Peters wasn't cleared to play after having a concussion and Wilton Speight is still out with cracked vertebrae. The fifth-year senior O'Korn simply didn't make the most of the opportunity, completing fewer than half of his passes. He threw an interception with about two minutes left and the Buckeyes ahead 24-20. Mike Weber sealed it for Ohio State with a 25-yard touchdown run with 1:44 left. Haskins, a redshirt freshman, was 6 of 7 for 94 yards and had a 22-yard run that set up J.K. Dobbins' 1-yard touchdown gave Ohio State a 21-20 lead late in the third quarter. Barrett appeared to hurt his right knee on a run midway through the third quarter. He limped off the field and toward the locker room before returning to watch the rest of the game from the sideline. No. 3 Oklahoma 59, West Virginia 31 • In Norman, Okla., Baker Mayfield threw for 281 yards and three touchdowns after being punished for directing a lewd gesture toward the Kansas bench last week, and Oklahoma routed West Virginia to maintain its momentum heading into the Big 12 Championship game. Mayfield was stripped of his captaincy and <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/jason-garrison-c-1_18.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/jason-garrison-c-1_18.html</a> starting job for the game, his final home game as a Sooner. He received the loudest cheers when the seniors were announced, then more loud cheers when he entered the game on Oklahoma's second possession.
The Stars are struggling on the road <a href="http://www.corsexe.com/jon-merrill-c-1_13.html">http://www.corsexe.com/jon-merrill-c-1_13.html</a> at 3-8-1 and the Golden Knights are soaring at home at 9-1-0. Dallas needs to fix its road woes soon with eight of the next 11 away from home. This also is a good chance to take a look at Vegas, which is off to the best start for any expansions team in NHL history. There was a time when those two were supposed to lead the Stars for decades, but Neal was traded to get Alex Goligoski, and he has now landed in Vegas (after stops in Pittsburgh and Nashville) and is one of their top goal scorers. Neal has 12 goals and 7 assists for 19 points, including both goals in a 2-1 win over Dallas on opening night, while Benn has 11 goals and 10 assists for 21 points. In 19 career games against the Stars, Neal has 15 points (7 goals, 8 assists). That's the scoring average for the Golden Knights, third best in the NHL. Vegas has 10 players with 10 or more points (the Stars have six). Former Stars players James Neal (19 points), Reilly Smith (19 points) and Cody Eakin (10 points) are a big part of the success Dallas beat Calgary, 6-4, on Friday, and is 12-10-1, 3-8-1 on the road. Vegas won 4-2 at Arizona Saturday and is on a five-game winning streak. The Golden Knights are 15-6-1, 9-1-0 at home Ben Bishop is expected to start for Dallas. He is 10-7-0 with a 2.76 GAA and .907 save percentage. The Stars lost to Vegas on opening night in Dallas, 2-1.Marc-Andre Fleury had 45 saves for the Golden Knights. Defenseman Marc Methot is out for 4-6 weeks after arthroscopic knee surgery. Stars defenseman Stephen Johns left the game Friday after a collision with the boards, but is expected to return tonight. Vegas ranks third in goal differential at plus-0.73. Dallas ranks sixth in power play success at 23.9 percent. Vegas is 19th on the penalty kill at 78.9 percent. Stars forward Alexander Radulov as 18 <a href="http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/mikhail-grabovski-c-1_37.html">http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/mikhail-grabovski-c-1_37.html</a> points (7 goals, 11 assists) in the past 14 games. Golden Knights forward William Karlsson has goals in five straight games. Vegas forward Jonathan Marchessault was named the NHL's First Star of the Week Monday after tallying 3 goals and 6 assists in three games.
In the 2017 Rangers offseason Jeff Gorton bought out Dan Girardi’s contract. With Girardi’s contract off the books the spotlight shifted <a href="http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/henri-jokiharju-jersey-c-1_25.html">http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/henri-jokiharju-jersey-c-1_25.html</a> to Marc Staal and his $5.7 million cap hit. To many, it felt like the next scapegoat of the Rangers defense had been selected before the puck dropped on the new season. It’s also important to point out that Staal received a lot of criticism for his play in the 2017 Playoffs, as a result there some speculation that his days in New York could be numbered. The rumors and criticism clearly reached the ears of the veteran defenseman. “I got kind of sick of that kind of talk,” Staal told The Post back in October. “I’m not denying that there was a reason for it with the way the season ended for me, but I came into camp determined to let my play do my talking for me. “It was tough. Of course there are going to be questions with the way we lost in the playoffs. Obviously I needed to be better than the way I played, especially in the Ottawa series. But I never thought I was done.” Staal entered his 11th season with the Rangers with a bit of a chip on his shoulder. He admitted that all of the negative attention made <a href="http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/markus-granlund-jersey-c-1_21.html">http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/markus-granlund-jersey-c-1_21.html</a> him angry. Through the first quarter of the 2017-18 season Staal has been playing like a man who has something to prove. But has he done enough to cement his future with the Rangers?
Zuccarello schießt Rangers zum Overtime-Sieg gegen <a href="http://www.authenticnhlmapleleafsshop.com/matt-martin-jersey-c-1_15.html">http://www.authenticnhlmapleleafsshop.com/matt-martin-jersey-c-1_15.html</a> Detroit – Raffl verliert mit den Philadelphia Flyers ebenso wie Vanek mit den Vancouver Canucks New York – Die New York Rangers und Michael Grabner haben am Freitag in der NHL einen 2:1-Erfolg nach Verlängerung gegen die punktegleichen Detroit Red Wings gefeiert. Mats Zuccarello sorgte nach 37 Sekunden der "Overtime" für die Entscheidung. Für die Teams der zwei anderen Österreicher setzte es hingegen Niederlagen. Michael Raffl verlor mit den Philadelphia Flyers gegen Detroit nach 4:2-Führung mit 4:5 nach Verlängerung. Thomas Vanek ging beim 2:3 der Vancouver Canucks bei den New Jersey Devils ebenfalls leer aus. (APA, 25.11, 2017) NHL, Ergebnisse, Freitag: New York Rangers (Grabner) – Detroit Red Wings 2:1 n.V.

I am not sure why these New York Rangers continue to have those dreadful first 10-20 minutes out of the gate. There’s plenty of time in <a href="http://www.eraneta.com/cody-eakin-c-1_31.html">http://www.eraneta.com/cody-eakin-c-1_31.html</a> the first period to easily change the momentum of a game (more on that later, Mr. Kreider!) and nearly did the Rangers in Sunday. This team -- as I’ve said and will continue to say — is talented enough to handle those sleepwalking starts against worse-off teams, but they’re playing with fire to do it consistently. Especially with the brutal upcoming schedule. It just can’t happen, but we’ve been saying that for years. There’s a lot of fight in this team, though. And if you’re going to blame Alain Vigneault for these lackluster starts (which you can and should) you have to give him credit for the team never panicking (which you can and should). After Michael Grabner scored the game-tying goal just 19 seconds into the third, Sam Gagner put Vancouver up again just 41 seconds later. That’s a back-breaking goal more often than not, especially since the Rangers needed to claw their way back into the game to get it there in the first place. For the Rangers to keep going to the well was good to see. And better that they actually got rewarded for it. The Rangers still have a major offense problem, though. This week they got saved by Jesper Fast of all people, and Vesey Sunday afternoon, but outside of the power play, the only consistent source of offense at forward is KZB. Everything else is hit or miss, and that’s not a way to consistently win hockey games. And yet, the power play hasn’t been all that great of late. Part of the reason is because Vigneault (or Scott Arneil) has adjusted Pavel Buchnevich away from the point and into the pivot slot. That’s not a great place for one of your better puck movers. Put Kreider there, who can simply rip shots and isn’t much help at moving the puck, but not Buchenvich. Speaking of Buchnevich: He was easily one of the Rangers best forwards in this game. The past three or four games he’s gotten glorious chances and has been robbed. The goals are going to come for him. But how in the world does Grabner get a shift over him in overtime? How in the world does Mika Zibanejad only get one shift in overtime? I don’t love it, and that was about as bad an overtime as you can have without losing. As much as Buchnevich has been good, that entire line works so well together. Kreider actually becomes a passing threat with the two of them because they’re threats to score or get into position to score. He’s benefited by being ignored as everyone worries about Zibanejad and Buchnevich crashing the net, which affords him space. And Zibanejad is good enough that he can make anything work. What a player the Rangers have in him. Jimmy Vesey is a great depth player. I think he does just enough when he’s not scoring to make you notice him, and every now and again he’s going to pop in a goal or two (as seen Sunday). He’s not a guy who should be playing more than <a href="http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/jake-bischoff-c-1_20.html">http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/jake-bischoff-c-1_20.html</a> the top-six guys, though — Buchnevich included. Paul Carey and David Desharnais didn’t see the ice for most of the game, so it inflated everyone’s ice time, but I do think Vesey gets the benefit of the doubt from the bench boss more often than not. That Rick Nash pass to Vesey for the game-tying goal is exactly what all the Nash haters don’t talk about when they talk about Nash. The pass form Kevin Hayes to Nash to make that pass? My word. Henrik Lundqvist — who was brilliant again — apparently talked Vigneault into going second in the shootout. I have no earthly idea why Vigneault (who has the ultimate weapon in Lundqvist) always wants to go first. I guess he wants to be able to have Hank be the hammer at the end, but to me the hammer is having the killer shot to end things. Let Lundqvist put the pressure on them by making early saves. OK so here’s my thing on momentum: I am a firm believer in momentum in hockey. Always have been. You can literally feel a game shift at times, and that feeling is momentum. During intermission, Chris Kreider — with one of the greatest quotes of all time — mentioned the “hot hand fallacy” and then said he didn’t believe in momentum. But then, he claimed the Rangers needed to “tilt the ice” in their direction. WHICH IS MOMENTUM. Full quote was: “Personally, I don't believe in momentum. Just gotta tilt the ice here, have a better second.” I will fight this fight forever, just so you know. This really has nothing to do with anything, just thought I’d throw in my two cents. Those are a big two points for the Rangers, who are coming to the start of what’s going to be a difficult series of games. They get Florida and Carolina before going against Pittsburgh, Washington, New Jersey, Dallas, and Ottawa. It’s not going to be the easiest of months in December, so getting these points is critical, no matter how ugly the win might be.
Price gives the Habs what they need, and <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/tyler-wong-c-1_14.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/tyler-wong-c-1_14.html</a> not a moment too soon; Ovechkin is once again the league’s top goal-scorer, Taylor, Tyler, a couple of Vegas stars and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Carey Price – Montreal’s star netminder returned to the crease and stopped all 36 shots that he faced in Saturday’s 3-0 win over Buffalo; he had been out of the lineup for more than three weeks with a lower-body injury, and had a .867 save percentage in his previous eight starts. Alex Ovechkin – The Capitals sniper notched a hat trick in Saturday’s 4-2 win at Toronto, giving him six points (5 G, 1 A) in the past five games, and he now has a league-leading 18 goals in 25 games. Taylor Hall – New Jersey’s star winger tallied a goal and two assists in Friday’s 3-2 win against Vancouver, and added a goal and an assist in Saturday’s 4-3 overtime win at Detroit. He has nine points (3 G, 6 A) in the past seven games. Tyler Seguin – The Dallas centre had a hat trick in Friday’s 6-4 win against Calgary, giving him six points (4 G, 2 A) in the past four games. William Karlsson and Jonathan Marchessault – Karlsson scored two goals in Friday’s 5-4 win against San Jose then added a goal and an assist in Saturday’s 4-2 win at Arizona. He has recorded two points in five straight games. Marchessault notched a goal and two assists in both wins, giving him 11 points (4 G, 7 A) in the past five games. ZEROES Mike Matheson – Florida’s blueliner had a tough night (9 for, 27 against, 25.0 CF%, 1-11 scoring chances) and was on the ice for three goals against in Saturday’s 4-1 loss to Chicago. Oscar Lindberg – The Golden Knights right winger has gone 10 games without a point, and struggled (12 for, 29 against, 29.3 CF%, 6-10 scoring chances) and was on the ice for three goals against in two Vegas wins on the weekend. Kris Letang – The Penguins split two games this weekend, and their top defenceman spent too much time in his <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/keegan-kolesar-c-1_3.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/keegan-kolesar-c-1_3.html</a> own end of the rink (24 for, 37 against, 39.3 CF%, 12-18 scoring chances) and was on the ice for three goals against. VITAL SIGNS David Perron – The Golden Knights winger was leveled by Sharks RW Timo Meier and forced out of the game Friday.
Una Kemas Lamipel non certo entusiasmante ed allo stesso tempo alquanto fortunata, vince per 3-2 a Grottazzolina, ottenendo <a href="http://www.corsexe.com/james-neal-c-1_21.html">http://www.corsexe.com/james-neal-c-1_21.html</a> la quinta vittoria consecutiva, consolidando il terzo posto. La Videx, seconda forza del campionato, si è arresa ai conciari dopo aver accarezzato la possibilità di prevalere nonostante l’assenza dell’australiano Richards (influenzato), una delle due punte di diamante della squadra di Ortenzi. Questi, agli sgoccioli del terzo set, ha perso per infortunio il forte opposto Morelli (20 punti fino a quel momento), altro cardine in attacco, uscito sul punteggio di 23-12 per i grottesi. I “Lupi”, fino a quel momento sotto per 2-1 ed in difficoltà per la serataccia di alcuni loro componenti, sono riusciti a non farsi sfuggire la ghiotta occasione, riequilibrando le sorti nella quarta frazione (18-25) ed andando a vincere al tie-break per 13-15. Grottazzolina, con De Fabritiis per Richards dall’inizio e poi con Minnoni per Morelli nel corso della contesa, ha dato il massimo con uno stoico Vecchi ed il vecchio leone Salgado mai domi, tenendo in scacco i conciari nel quinto set (8-6, 9-8 e 10-10), battendosi al limite delle proprie possibilità. Ciò nonostante la Kemas Lamipel è stata pratica ed opportunista, chiudendo il discorso sull’intesa Ciulli-Wagner. Nella parte finale il brasiliano di Totire è stato una furia e Ciulli l’ha fatto attaccare a ripetizione, puntando solo una volta su Zonca. Il muro marchigiano non ha mai bloccato lo scatenato opposto biancorosso, micidiale con 33 punti nel carniere. Lo stesso Ciulli, sul 13-13, ha chiuso poi la gara con una girata di prima intenzione e con un ace al servizio. Due punti consecutivi per espugnare l’inviolato ed angusto campo dei fermani. La Kemas Lamipel ha conquistato due punti, esultando alla fine, facendo il proprio dovere, altrimenti saremmo qui a parlare di una clamorosa occasione gettata al vento.

Many factors can affect sex drive, including <a href="http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/erik-gustafsson-jersey-c-1_47.html">http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/erik-gustafsson-jersey-c-1_47.html</a> relationship issues, stress or tiredness. Diet too can have a direct effect on the hormones which drive whether you're in the mood for intimacy. According to a nutritionist, you can give your libido a boost by choosing the right foods for breakfast and ensuring they're packed with vitamin D. Studies show that as a nation we are chronically deficient in this nutrient – which can cause low oestrogen in women and reduced testosterone in men. It’s estimated that a staggering one in five adults do not have adequate levels of 'the sunshine vitamin'. Rob Hobson, head of London-based Healthspan <a href="http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/loui-eriksson-jersey-c-1_3.html">http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/loui-eriksson-jersey-c-1_3.html</a> Nutrition, recommends eating mushrooms, fortified breakfast cereals, mackerel and eggs for breakfast to help boost vitamin D levels.
THREE THINGS TO WATCH 1. Veteran presence Jordan Weal and Taylor Leier come out of the lineup for the Flyers. It means Dale Weise and Jori Lehtera go back in. Coach Dave Hakstol said <a href="http://www.authenticnhlrangersshop.com/jesper-fast-jersey-c-1_26.html">http://www.authenticnhlrangersshop.com/jesper-fast-jersey-c-1_26.html</a> the veteran influence is just a coincidence, but why then take out two players with a better scoring touch? Clearly the Flyers are looking to end their seven-game drought with a more experienced lineup. “I think it’s been all over the board,” alternate captain Wayne Simmonds said. “There’s been some veteran guys making mistakes — I’ve made a couple myself — and some of the younger guys are making mistakes. We can’t start putting blame. That’s where things start falling apart. You can’t blame anyone. Everyone’s been making mistakes in this dressing room from the younger guys to the old guys and the old guys should know better. We gotta keep our heads up, stay positive and stay within what we can control and play better hockey.” 2. Calmer defense? Andrew MacDonald is set to return to the lineup after missing 15 games with a knee injury. He will likely go back to a pair with Ivan Provorov and Shayne Gostisbehere will be reunited with Robert Hagg. The Flyers are still missing Radko Gudas to a suspension, but this should bring some level of normalcy back to the blueliners. "When you have to shift your D-pairings due to an injury, sometimes it depends on how you’re making a shift or who you’re shifting for," Hakstol said. "For us the last couple of games we’ve had Mac out and we’ve had Gudy out, two players that are very distinct in their roles. We’re a little ways from getting Gudy back. With Mac, when he comes back…he’s got a real presence in our dressing room and he also has a real presence on the ice for us in terms of his role on his D-pairing and the domino effect of our D-corps." 3. Goalie matchup Brian Elliott will get another go for the Flyers, likely <a href="http://www.babewest.com/johnny-bower-jersey-c-1_14.html">http://www.babewest.com/johnny-bower-jersey-c-1_14.html</a> leaving Michal Neuvirth to face the San Jose Sharks Tuesday in the second half of a back-to-back. Elliott is 7-2-1 in his career against the Penguins with a 2.47 goals-against average and .928 save percentage. He will likely face Matt Murray, who has a 2-2-0 in five career games against the Flyers with a 3.04 goals-against average and .906 save percentage.
The Toronto Marlies extended their winning streak to six games thanks to another excellent performance from Garret Sparks. The 2-1 victory was the Marlies‘ ninth in their <a href="http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_27.html">http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_27.html</a> last ten games and moves them to the top of the AHL standings with a .789 winning percentage. First Period Playing the first of four games scheduled at the ACC this season, the Marlies looked like their parent club of late in that they lacked urgency early in the contest. Turnovers were an issue early as Jordan Murray almost put the Senators ahead two minutes in if not for a right pad save from Sparks. The goaltender produced an even better save to deny Max Reinhart at the six-minute mark after the forward breezed past the Marlies defense and in alone on net. The first power play of the game led to Toronto taking an undeserved lead with 13:40 on the clock. After winning the initial faceoff, Chris Mueller dished down low to Kerby Rychel, whose no-look backhand pass across the crease found Andreas Johnsson for an easy tap-in. The Marlies’ 1-0 goal did little to reverse the flow of the game. The Senators could easily have tied up the game after being gift-wrapped a pair of scoring chances. The first mistake by Andrew Nielsen led to an odd-man rush, but Sparks bailed him out. Travis Dermott then threw the puck in front of his own net straight to Chris Kelly low in the slot, where the veteran forward looked to the sky in frustration after Sparks produced yet another fantastic save to keep Belleville scoreless. Senators goaltender Danny Taylor was almost a passenger between the pipes for Belleville, but he had to be sharp to deny Mason Marchment from doubling Toronto’s lead late in the period after a nice move around the net by Miro Aaltonen. Second Period The middle frame featured little improvement from the Marlies’ point of view. They continued to be thoroughly out-worked and couldn’t find an answer for the B-Sens clogging up the neutral zone. Toronto also couldn’t capitalize on a power play carried over from the first period before finding themselves on the penalty kill shortly afterwards. The PK did its job, but within seconds of Nielsen re-entering the fray, Belleville levelled the scoreline. Garret Sparks came out to play the puck behind his net and left the puck in the trapezoid for one of his defencemen to collect. Martin Marincin and Calle Rosen were not on the same page; both stopped skating, anticipating a pass from their goaltender. That allowed Filip Chlapik to grab the loose puck and tee up Reinhart, who lifted the <a href="http://www.authenticnhlmapleleafsshop.com/joffrey-lupul-jersey-c-1_27.html">http://www.authenticnhlmapleleafsshop.com/joffrey-lupul-jersey-c-1_27.html</a> puck over Sparks as he was scrambling to get himself set following the initial miscommunication. The Marlies mustered just five shots through the second period and were thankful to Sparks turning aside Daniel Ciampini and Jack Rodewald to ensure it was an even through 40 minutes. Third Period Whatever Sheldon Keefe said in the room during intermission had the desired effect as the Marlies came out and dominated the final frame of regulation. Taylor was called upon to make 16 saves in the third period including a couple of top-drawer stops inside the final two minutes. Sparks was a passenger by comparison while facing just four shots, but, like Taylor, he had to be alert in the dying moments of regulation to ensure Toronto headed to overtime for the first time this season. The teams shared a plethora of chances during the five minutes of 3-on-3 hockey but hit the net just four times combined. The two registered by Belleville were excellent scoring chances, but Sparks stonewalled Rodewald and Gabriel Gagne. Several near misses for the Marlies included one last look in the final seconds with Johnsson in possession in the slot. The Swede picked out Marincin, who wound up for a slapshot that Chris Kelly bravely threw himself into the path of. With a shootout needed to decide on the extra point, Aaltonen jumped over the boards first for the Marlies. The Finnish forward skated right to left before firing back against the grain, beating Taylor high glove side. Sparks then turned aside Reinhart’s five-hole attempt before Dmytro Timashov scored a near carbon copy of Aaltonen’s goal to put Toronto within one save of victory. Gabriel Gagne attempted to fake a slap shot and beat the goaltender in tight, but Sparks brought out the poke-check to seal the extra point for his team.
TORONTO — Kerby Rychel had a goal <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/luca-sbisa-c-1_36.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightssale.com/luca-sbisa-c-1_36.html</a> and two assists and Calvin Pickard stopped 28 shots as the Toronto Marlies extended their winning streak to seven games by defeating the Belleville Senators 5-1 on Sunday in American Hockey League action. Andreas Johnsson, Chris Mueller, Colin Greening and Kasperi Kapanen, into an empty net, supplied the rest of the offence for Toronto (16-4-0), the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate. Gabriel Gagne replied in the third period for the Senators (9-10-2), who are Ottawa's farm club. Chris Driedger turned away 34-of-38 shots in defeat. The Marlies were 1 for 5 on the <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/jason-garrison-c-1_18.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/jason-garrison-c-1_18.html</a> power play and Belleville was scoreless on four attempts.
Not since the days of Brian Leetch have the <a href="http://www.corsexe.com/keegan-kolesar-c-1_38.html">http://www.corsexe.com/keegan-kolesar-c-1_38.html</a> Rangers had an elite, puck-moving defenseman to run the power play. It was a piece they had been lacking for years. Now, however, they have their man. To succeed in today’s NHL, a team needs defensemen who can move the puck, play a strong two way game, and skate well. While these defensemen are in short supply, teams need them to win championships. Look at the recent Stanley Cup winners; Pittsburgh has Kris Letang, Chicago has Duncan Keith, and Los Angeles has Drew Doughty. The last defenseman that the Rangers had who fits this mold is Brian Leetch. After he left, they never replaced him. They tried to, signing Dan Boyle in the 2014 offseason and acquiring Keith Yandle at the 2015 trade deadline, but it wasn’t quite the same. Boyle was already on the decline when he got here, and Yandle wasn’t properly utilized by Alain Vigneault. Enter Kevin Shattenkirk, an elite puck-moving defenseman for the St. Louis Blues. Shattenkirk was regarded as an offensive defenseman in St. Louis, a power play specialist. Shattenkirk grew up in New Rochelle, a lifelong Ranger fan. He was long rumored to want to play for the Rangers at some point in his career. At the 2017 trade deadline, everybody knew Shattenkirk was going to be traded from St. Louis. The Rangers were rumored to be in on him, but he was traded to the Washington Capitals. After a brief few months in Washington, Shattenkirk was set to be a free agent. While there were reports that the Rangers weren’t going to sign Shattenkirk, these were incorrect. The Rangers inked Shattenkirk to an absolute steal of a contract, four years for $26.6 million. Shattenkirk knew what he was brought here to do; provide offense from the back end and run a power play that had been stagnant for a long time. Early season adjustment Shattenkirk started the season trying to adjust to playing for his hometown team, learning a new system under a new head coach. He struggled at times, as he was constantly bounced around the lineup. He started the season alongside captain Ryan McDonagh on the top pair, and then was on the bottom pair with Marc Staal a few games later. Then, Alain Vigneault decided to place him on the second pair with budding second-year star Brady Skjei. Since then, Shattenkirk has looked much more comfortable and is absolutely thriving. Power play prowess 18 games into the season, the Rangers power play has been absolutely lethal. It has been a long time since the Rangers power play was capable of breaking a game open. It now has that ability. The power play is currently converting at a rate of 25.8%, good for third in the league. The top power play unit of Chris Kreider, Mika Zibanejad, Pavel Buchnevich, Mats Zuccarello, and Kevin Shattenkirk has worked wonders. Shattenkirk has been fantastic at quarterbacking the power play, giving them a lethal defenseman at the point for the first time in years. So far, Shattenkirk has nine points on the power <a href="http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/luca-sbisa-c-1_20.html">http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/luca-sbisa-c-1_20.html</a> play, good for second on the team. He has made a previously pedestrian unit look incredibly dangerous, capable of scoring at any moment. Shattenkirk’s skill level is especially evident on the man advantage. His vision on the ice is incredible. He has a knack of seeing things, whether it is an open player to pass to or a lane to shoot through, that the average player doesn’t see. Offensive onslaught Shattenkirk has always had a reputation of being a very talented offensive defenseman. So far this season, this has most definitely been the case. In 18 games, Shattenkirk has scored five goals and added 12 assists for a total of 17 points. On an 82 game scale, Shattenkirk is on pace to post 23 goals and 55 assists for 78 points. While he likely won’t put up this many points, somewhere around 55-60 points seems about right. Shattenkirk has also always been known as a positive possession player. That has carried over here, posting an even stength Corsi For percentage of 50.3%. This is partly a product of Shattenkirk starting most of his shifts in the offensive zone. To date, Shattenkirk has started 60.5% of his shifts in the offensive zone. Shattenkirk has been an important piece for the Rangers on the blue line, and will continue to be for the rest of the season.
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Another second-half collapse, another round of questions about Oklahoma City’s finishing power. After dominating defending NBA champion <a href="http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/corey-crawford-jersey-c-1_4.html">http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/corey-crawford-jersey-c-1_4.html</a> Golden State from start to finish two days earlier, the Thunder wasted a big lead in a 99-98 loss to the Detroit Pistons on Friday night. Oklahoma City had a 10-point lead at the half and was up 15 midway through the third quarter before the Pistons stormed back, led by center Andre Drummond and bench players Ish Smith and Langston Galloway. “In the first half, (Drummond) was not good. That’s one of the reasons we were getting crushed,” Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said about. “In the second half, he was much better and we made some big shots.” Detroit grabbed the lead for good midway through the fourth quarter and the Thunder missed 14 of their last 20 shots, including a final 27-footer by Russell Westbrook in the final three seconds that left Oklahoma City a point short. “We’re going to live and die with Russ taking that shot,” Oklahoma City’s Paul George said. “He had a good look but it just didn’t go in.” Westbrook had his sixth triple-double of the season for Oklahoma City with 27 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds. He missed a long 3-point attempt on the final possession to finish 1 of 10 from 3-point range and 10 of 29 from the field. Oklahoma City had numerous chances, missing three shots on one possession in the final minute. It was the eighth double-digit lead given up by the Thunder this season on their way to a loss. Smith finished with 15 points. “Going into these buildings is going to be tough on us, but as long as we stay together and keep picking each other up, then we got a good chance,” Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson said. “It is always great to get a win on the road.” Carmelo Anthony had 20 points for Oklahoma City, and Paul George had 16. IMPRESSIVE RESUME Since the start of 2009-10 season, the Thunder have the fourth best overall winning percentage among the Big Four professional sports, trailing <a href="http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/loui-eriksson-jersey-c-1_3.html">http://www.canucksnhlproshop.com/loui-eriksson-jersey-c-1_3.html</a> only the New England Patriots (NFL), San Antonio Spurs (NBA) and Green Bay Packers (NFL). WELCOME BACK? Former Thunder guard Jackson made his first appearance in OKC after missing both meetings last season due to injury. Jackson was booed lustily in pregame introductions and in the first half of the game. His last appearance at Chesapeake Arena included a verbal altercation with a fan at courtside.
