Authentic NFL Nike Elite Jerseys Stitched China

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — No quarterback in the Cheap NFL Jerseys has been better in November and beyond during the past four seasons than Nick Foles.

That makes the timing of his return from a broken collarbone perfect for the Cheap Jacksonville Jaguars Jerseys, who are still alive in the playoff race despite a 4-5 record. Their schedule eases up in the second half, so the addition of Mr. November could be just the spark the Jaguars need to make a run.

Mr. November
This is the Nick Foles time of year. In the last 4 seasons, Foles is 10-2 as a starter in November or later (including playoffs). That’s the best winning percentage by a starting quarterback in that time.

QB PCT. W-L
Nick Foles .833 10-2
Tom Brady .794 27-7
Andrew Luck .765 13-4
ESPN Stats & Information
Per ESPN Stats & Information, Foles has the best winning percentage of any starting quarterback in November or later (including playoffs) since 2016. He’s 10-2 (.833), which is better than Tom Brady (27-7, .794) and Andrew Luck (13-4, .765). Granted, he has played in fewer games than Brady and Luck, but six of those games have come in the playoffs — including Super Bowl LII — and the four teams he’s beaten in the postseason have a combined record of 52-20.

Foles was playing for Philadelphia for all but one of those 12 games (the other came when he beat the Jaguars in his lone start with Kansas City in 2016), so he’s had the benefit of a good supporting cast on offense with, among others, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor, Alshon Jeffery and LeGarrette Blount. He also had one of the NFL’s best defenses behind him in 2017 (No. 4 overall and in scoring).

COSTA MESA, Calif. — Blood boiling, Cheap Los Angeles Chargers Jerseys owner Dean Spanos strongly denied his team has any interest in relocating to London, addressing a report broaching the possibility Tuesday.

“It’s total f—ing bulls—,” Spanos said. “We’re not going to London. We’re not going anywhere. We’re playing in Los Angeles. This is our home, and this is where we are planning to be for a long f—ing time. Period.”

Spanos was responding to a story Monday by The Athletic, which reported the Chargers and the NFL could look at moving the team to London, partly because of concerns over the Los Angeles market.

The NFL issued a statement later Tuesday, saying there was “no substance” to the report.

“No consideration has been given to the Chargers playing anywhere other than Los Angeles at the new stadium in Hollywood Park next season and beyond,” the league’s statement said. “There have been no discussions of any kind between the NFL and the Chargers regarding moving to London. Both our office and the Chargers are entirely focused on the success of the team in Los Angeles.”

Since the Chargers relocated from San Diego to Los Angeles three years ago, the team has experienced an uphill climb in building a fan base, with opposing fans regularly taking over the team’s temporary home at Dignity Health Sports Complex, a 27,000-seat soccer stadium that serves as the home of Major League Soccer’s LA Galaxy.

However, the Chargers believe they will have more success earning new fans in Los Angeles once the team moves into its new home of SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, starting next year.

Chargers coach Anthony Lynn, when asked if he had talked with his players about the relocation story, said his focus is on Thursday’s game on the road against the Cheap Oakland Raiders Jerseys.

“I just found out about the story last night,” Lynn said. “I don’t think there’s anything to it — well, I know there’s not anything to it. We’re not going to let it be a distraction for us. We’ve got a job to do Thursday night, and that’s what we’re getting prepared for.”

Quarterback Philip Rivers, who has continued to commute from San Diego to Orange County since the team’s move to Los Angeles, declined to comment before practice.

“I don’t see any reason to comment on it, to be honest with you,” Rivers said.

Foles doesn’t have the same level of playmakers with the Jaguars, but he does have some good pieces. Leonard Fournette is the league’s third-leading rusher (831 yards) and DJ Chark ranks ninth in the NFL and second in the AFC with 692 receiving yards. However, the Jaguars need to get better production out of the tight end position (35 catches), and rookie Josh Oliver has made no impact in his first three games.

Foles’ biggest advantage is the Jaguars’ remaining schedule: It’s the easiest among the four AFC South teams. The combined record of the Jaguars’ upcoming opponents is 25-33 (.431), and only one of the six teams they play has a winning record (5-3 Indianapolis twice). It also includes games against Tampa Bay (2-6) and Atlanta (1-7).

The Texans have games remaining against Baltimore and New England. Tennessee has to play New Orleans and Kansas City. The Colts have the Saints on their schedule.

Foles’ first two games back are at Indianapolis and Tennessee, and they’re critical games if the Jaguars are going to be in playoff contention entering December.

“The good thing is there’s a lot of division games still left,” Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell said. “We’re 1-2 in the division, but if we win out in our division, we’ll be in a position to go to the playoffs. There’s a lot of good Cheap Football Jerseys to be played.”

Looks like Foles is getting back in the nick of time.

Authentic NHL Hockey Jerseys For Sale China

EDMONTON, Alberta — The Arizona Coyotes are off to an impressive start early in the season.

Derek Stepan scored at 2:01 of overtime and the Cheap Arizona Coyotes Jerseys beat the Cheap Edmonton Oilers Jerseys 3-2 on Monday night.

Stepan took a feed from Nick Schmaltz and picked the corner on goalie Mikko Koskinen for the winner.

“I think our group has been doing that (grinding) all year, it’s a big part of our group is our ability to bounce back, whether it be game to game or even in game,” Stepan said of Arizona’s mental resilience after the Oilers tied it up late. “Maybe when we don’t have our `A’ stuff, we’re able to have a push back within a few minutes.”

Michael Grabner and Carl Soderberg also scored for the Coyotes, who have won four of their last five.

“It was not a great start, them scoring right away, but back-to-backs you have to rely on all the lines and everyone was contributing and that’s a really tough line to play against and they have last change,” said Coyotes goalie Darcy Kuemper, who made 26 saves. “I thought everyone, whoever was out there did a great job.”

Connor McDavid and Gaetan Haas scored for the Oilers, who had their two-game winning streak snapped.

“We know we could have been a little bit better at the beginning of the game, but we found a way to get that second goal in the third,” said Oilers defenseman Darnell Nurse. “Sure, we’ve been doing it a little too often where we have to find ways at the end of the game to win or force overtime, but over the course of 82 games it’s going to happen. It just so happens that it happened in a cluster at the beginning of the year.”

The Oilers only needed 91 seconds to get on the scoreboard as McDavid had a highlight-reel goal, moving past defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson and blowing past Kuemper to record his seventh goal of the season.

Grabner beat Koskinen stick side with a wrist shot to tie the game 1-1 3:30 into the first.

Soderberg took advantage of a turnover by Edmonton defender Joel Persson to make it 2-1 for the Coyotes at about the midway mark of the second, beating Koskinen high to the glove side.

Haas tied it with 4:41 left in the third period. He tipped a shot by Matt Benning past Kuemper for his first career NHL goal, forcing overtime.

“It’s good that we score this goal, and we get a point,” said the 27-year-old Swiss center, playing his first season in the NHL. “Maybe in the end it’s the point we need. I think it’s a good point.”

It was the first of four meetings between the Pacific Division rivals, with each team winning both road games last year. … Edmonton has struggled with the Coyotes for quite some time, coming into the game with just seven wins in regulation against Arizona in their last 45 games. .. Kuemper entered the game having only allowed three goals on one occasion out of nine games this season. .. It was Oilers head coach Dave Tippett’s first game against his old Coyotes squad. He coached Arizona for eight seasons (2009-10 to 2016-17). … Alex Chiasson got an opportunity on the top line with Draisaitl and McDavid in an attempt to jumpstart his production. But, he was replaced by Sam Gagner as the game went on.

LOS ANGELES — Drew Doughty scored with 16.6 remaining in overtime and the Cheap Los Angeles Kings Jerseysbeat the Cheap Chicago Blackhawks Jerseys 4-3 on Saturday night.

Michael Amadio, Kyle Clifford and Matt Roy also scored for the Kings, who snapped a four-game losing streak. Jack Campbell made 24 saves.

David Kampf had a goal and Dominik Kubalik scored on the power play for the Blackhawks, who are 1-4-2 in their past seven games. Corey Crawford made 40 saves.

Crawford stopped the initial shot during a 2-on-1 break late in overtime, but the puck trickled free from under the Blackhawks goalie. Doughty was able to tap in the loose puck for his fourth goal of the season.

Amadio got to the back post to backhand in a pass by Dustin Brown at 12:37 of the third to put the Kings up 3-2. Jonathan Toews tied it at 3-3 with a wrist shot from the left circle with 1:39 remaining.

The Kings went up 2-0 early in the first period on goals by Clifford at 2:50 and Roy at 4:29. The Blackhawks cut it to 2-1 on a power-play goal by Kubalik at 8:25. Kampf tied it at 2-all when Campbell misplayed the puck under pressure from Kubalik, giving Kampf a shot into an open net for his second goal of the season at 17:23.

Crawford came out of the game and went back to the dressing room after Roy’s goal, but returned with 10:13 left in the period. Crawford had taken a puck to the mask on a shot by Kings defenseman Kurtis MacDermid at 2:41.

Game notes
Brown had two assists. . Blackhawks D Adam Boqvist, the No. 8 overall pick in the 2018 draft, made his Cheap NHL Jerseys debut. . Kubalik’s goal ended an 0-for-21 drought on the power play dating to Oct. 18 against Columbus.

INDIANAPOLIS — His sixth Cheap NBA Jerseys season has been a slow transition in getting acclimated with a new team, so T.J. Warren admittedly was pressing too much.

On a Sunday night when the Cheap Indiana Pacers Jerseys had a makeshift lineup with three injured starters sidelined, Warren adjusted well to playing a more prominent role with a season-high 26 points in a 108-95 home win over Chicago.

“It’s definitely been a process,” said Warren, acquired in the offseason after five years with Phoenix. “I’m just trying to figure out how I can fit in and where I can be effective on this team. It’s a whole new system with guys who have been together for like a month and a half now. We’re still learning each other.”

Warren, a 14.4-point scorer with the Suns, was averaging 12.8 points for the Pacers (3-3) after a humbling 3-point effort on 1-of-8 shooting in a Friday home win over Cleveland. But this night the shots were falling from the outset as he scored 14 first-half points to help the Pacers take a 13-point lead at the break.

“It’s more just him trying to find his rhythm and get a feel for where his opportunities are coming,” said Pacers coach Nate McMillan. “We’re still early. It’s going to take some time with this group getting a feel for each other.”

A Pacers squad already missing its best player — All-Star guard Victor Oladipo has yet to make his season debut in his recovery from knee surgery — was also without forward/center Myles Turner (ankle) and center Domantas Sabonis (calf contusion).

That meant McMillan was tinkering with lineups he hadn’t even tried in practice, but they worked as the Pacers won their third straight game and sixth in a row against the Bulls (2-5).

“Guys have to be ready to step up and play when that opportunity presents itself,” McMillan said. “I thought tonight, as a group, we did.”

Point guard Malcom Brogdon had 22 points and seven of the Pacers’ team-high 28 assists.

“Having Victor out, you know the type of player he is as an All-Star, and still being able to win games and put it together, it’s been huge for us,” Brogdon said. “But to have Myles and Domas out and still get this win, it’s huge for our confidence.”

Reserve forward TJ Leaf took advantage of extra minutes as a backup center with his second career double-double, 13 points and 15 rebounds. The third-year pro had entered with seasonal averages of 2.8 points and 2.5 rebounds.

The Bulls (2-5), winless in five road games, lamented a lost opportunity against an opponent missing key players.

“We’ve been the short-handed team that went out and scrapped it and junkyard-dogged it and beat teams that maybe we shouldn’t have beaten,” said Bulls coach Jim Boylen. “We haven’t been the team that’s favored very often. And maybe that’s the lesson we’ve got to learn, that whether you’re favored or not, or whether they’re hurt or not, you’ve got to bring it.”

Zach LaVine led the Bulls with 21 points and Wendell Carter Jr. added 20.

“We’ve got to take advantage of opportunities like this,” said Bulls reserve forward Thaddeus Young, who had 12 points. “I told the team in the postgame meeting this is what we call a trap game. We just didn’t take advantage.”

TIP-INS

Bulls: LaVine joined select company on Friday in his 93rd game in bumping his career point total to 2,020. The only other Bulls to score more than 2,000 points in fewer games were Hall of Famer Michael Jordan (73 games) and Derrick Rose (86), according to Elias Sports Bureau.

Pacers: Rookie reserve center Goga Bitadze, drafted 18th overall, is making the most of his first extended playing time with nine points against the Bulls after scoring 10 against Cleveland on Friday. Prior to that, he had just two points in two games and did not play in two others.

FAMILIAR NAMES

At one point in the first half, the Pacers’ lineup featured nothing but T.J.’s and Holidays with center TJ Leaf, forward T.J. Warren, forward T.J. McConnell, guard Justin Holiday and guard Aaron Holiday.

BOSTON — Jayson Tatum made a big play at a big moment for the Cheap Boston Celtics Jerseys.

Then he made it sound very routine.

Tatum hit a turnaround jumper with 1.3 seconds remaining, and the Celtics beat the Cheap New York Knicks Jerseys 104-102 on Friday night for their fourth straight victory.

“It feels great, but I don’t want to get too excited,” Tatum said. “The guys that I look up to in this league, they’ve do things like this all the time.”

Tatum finished with 24 points. Kemba Walker scored 23 of his 33 points in the second half, and Gordon Hayward had 13 points and nine boards.

Walker called Tatum’s basket “a huge, big-time shot.”

“I’m happy we went to him,” he said. “Hopefully that keeps him confident. That can really just get something going for us. That was an unbelievable play.”

Unlike a 118-95 rout at Madison Square Garden the previous Saturday, Boston was pushed by New York until the very end of a game that featured 24 lead changes and 10 ties.

Marcus Morris, who played the last two seasons with the Celtics before signing with New York as a free agent, led the Knicks with 29 points. Morris made four foul shots in the final minute, and then hit a tying 3-pointer with 4.7 seconds left.

“We stayed locked in all game long,” said Knicks rookie RJ Barrett, who finished with 15 points and seven rebounds. “The whole fourth quarter we was fighting, and that’s the identity of our team. We did that tonight.”

After Morris’ late 3, the Celtics called timeout and Marcus Smart inbounded the ball to Tatum in the corner. He caught the pass, turned around and pulled up for a shot from the corner that was initially called a 3-pointer. It was quickly overturned during the timeout, but it didn’t matter. The Celtics broke up a long inbound pass and the Knicks didn’t get off another shot.

Morris congratulated his former teammate after the game.

“It was good to see him get his first one (game-winning shot),” Morris said. “I wish it could have been against somebody else, but hey — it’s the NBA.”

WELCOME WALKER

It was the third straight game with 30-plus points by Walker, who scored 32 in the previous two and finished with his best game since signing with the Celtics as a free agent.

Walker also hit all 14 of his foul shots and added five assists and six rebounds.

“We stuck with the game,” Walker said. “It came down to a last-second shot, but (we’ll) take wins any way you can get them.”

LONG BALL

The Knicks led 50-49 at halftime and opened the third quarter with a 3-pointer by Frank Ntilikina, starting a period full of shots from beyond the arc. Both clubs hit five 3-pointers in the quarter before the Celtics carried a 75-74 lead into the fourth.

The back-and-forth continued in the final period. Boston regained the lead on a three-point play by Walker, putting the Celtics up 87-86 with 5:19 remaining.

Hayward followed with a 3-pointer and Tatum hit a pair of foul shots to stretch the lead to 92-86 with 4:14 left to play. The Knicks pulled within a point at 92-91, then again at 95-94 on a 3-pointer by Morris, but the Celtics answered with a pair of free throws by Walker and a 3-pointer by Tatum with 1:50 remaining, giving Boston a 99-94 lead.

TIP-INS

Knicks: Bobby Portis had 13 points and seven rebounds. … Ntilikina scored 10. He started at point guard, where the Knicks were without Elfrid Payton (hamstring), Dennis Smith Jr. (death in the family) and Kadeem Allen (knee).

Celtics: Rookie Grant Williams scored 10 points.

SAN DIEGO — The Cheap San Diego Padres Jerseys introduced their new manager and hinted about old uniform colors they’ll wear in 2020. It’s easy to predict which of those the team’s weary, patient fans are more excited about.

When Jayce Tingler was presented at a news conference on Thursday, he was wearing the club’s classic brown jersey, which is expected to return next season.

The 38-year-old is a first-time big league manager and takes over a team that last had a winning record in 2010. San Diego has not hired a manager with prior big league experience since Jack McKeon in 1988.

“I may not be perfect,” Tingler said of his lack of experience. “But I have managed a lot of games in my mind.”

Andy Green was fired Sept. 21 after going 274-366 in four seasons.

Padres general manager A.J. Preller’s relationship with Tingler dates to 2015 and their time together with the Cheap Texas Rangers Jerseys.

“I think the easy thing to do sometimes when you make a decision and it doesn’t get the result you’re looking for is going 180 degrees in a different direction,” Preller said. “But we understood what we were looking for and type of person we were looking for.”

Ron Fowler, one of the Padres’ owners, said he thought the Padres “sucked” and were an “embarrassment” in during the season’s second half. The team lost at least 90 games for the fourth straight year and finished 36 games behind the first-place Cheap Los Angeles Dodgers Jerseys in the NL West despite agreeing to a $300 million, 10-year contract with star infielder Manny Machado.

“We’ve got to win now,” Fowler said.

Tingler became the career hits leader at the University of Missouri and was a minor league outfielder for four seasons, never rising above Double-A. He spent the past 14 years with the Rangers, managing in the Dominican Winter League, Dominican Summer League and Arizona Rookie League. He also served as Texas’ minor league coordinator, assistant general manager and interim bench coach.

“Look, I’m going to make mistakes, and my guess is the players are going to make mistakes, so we already have common ground,” Tingler said. “The National League is going to be new to me, and I’ll need to learn, need to grow.”

Tingler said not many managers in their initial job inherit a roster with talent such as Manny Machado, first baseman Eric Hosmer and closer Kirby Yates and an exciting young shortstop in Fernando Tatis Jr. Needs include starting pitching.

“It’s a players’ game, and if you don’t have the talent, it is very hard,” co-owner Peter Seidler said. “And this hiring is just one piece of the puzzle. But I’m completely confident we got the right guy.”

San Diego has never won a World Series.

“I’ve been around a lot of very good Cheap Baseball Jerseys men, and I’m maybe a little bit new school and a lot of bit old school,” Tingler said. “I’m just really interested in working with a staff that can build relationships with players, push players and get the best out of them. If we’re able to do that and double down on some of those fundamentals, we have a chance to be ultra-successful here. I cannot wait to be a part of a group that brings a championship to the city of San Diego.”

CLEVELAND — The Indians on Thursday exercised starter Corey Kluber’s $17.5 million contract option for next season.

Team president Chris Antonetti said last month that the Indians would pick up Kluber’s option. The club formally made the move Thursday while declining options on second baseman Jason Kipnis and reliever Dan Otero for 2020.

Kluber, a two-time Cy Young Award winner, didn’t pitch for the Indians after May 1, when the right-hander sustained a broken arm when he was hit by a comebacker. He was nearing a return in the minor leagues before an oblique injury ended his comeback.

The 33-year-old Kluber is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

The Indians have parted ways with Kipnis, a two-time All-Star. He had a $16.5 million option for next season. Antonetti hasn’t ruled out re-signing the 32-year-old, who has been with Cleveland his entire career.

Also, left-hander Oliver Perez will make $3 million next season. The reliever had a vesting option for 2020 that was triggered by games pitched, subject to a successful physical.

San Diego declined a $2.5 million option on RHP Adam Warren, who gets a $500,000 buyout, and a $2 million option on LHP Aaron Loup, who gets a $200,000 buyout. Both will become free agents.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. — Defensive back Darius Slay still doesn’t care whether or not he was traded from the Cheap Detroit Lions Jerseys earlier this week. He heard the rumors and ignored them. He spent a day which could be stressful for others, with futures in the balance and all, playing video games — getting better at Call of Duty and NBA 2K.

If the Lions decided they didn’t want him anymore, so be it. He was OK with that. But don’t take that the wrong way, either. Darius Slay has no problems staying, either. And has no issues being around for a long time if that’s what ends up happening. Including his entire career.

“I wouldn’t mind,” Slay said Wednesday. “I wouldn’t mind playing my whole career, who wouldn’t want to play on just one team. But it’s a whole business.”

BEREA, Ohio — Odell Beckham Jr. came to the defense of Baker Mayfield on Thursday, calling some criticism of the embattled Cheap Cleveland Browns Jerseys quarterback unfair, while noting that others on the team need to play better.

“You can’t sit here and say it’s all on him. You have to take a look at everything going on around him,” Beckham said. “Obviously, he has to play better. I have to player better. … We all need to do better. Can’t sit back and be like, ‘It’s Baker’s fault.’ I feel like that’s the easiest thing for us to do. I’ve been in situations where one person is getting the blame, and the rest of the people are quiet to kind of stay out of the fire.

“I’m going to jump in the fire with him. I’ll be the first one. Some of these losses are on me. I need to be in the right place at the right time. I’m going to do better. And that’s what I plan to do for the rest of the season.”

The Browns are 2-5, with Mayfield tied for the Cheap NFL Jerseys lead with Tampa Bay’s Jameis Winston with 12 interceptions. Beckham, meanwhile, has only one touchdown catch in his first season with Cleveland and is averaging career lows with only 4.9 receptions and 69.7 yards per game.

Coming off a loss at New England, Mayfield got into a testy exchange Wednesday with a reporter before abruptly walking out of his media availability. Beckham said he’d already talked about the incident with Mayfield, referencing a Drake lyric as a lesson — “You only lose when you fight back” — while also offering understanding.

“Nobody likes to feel like you’re being poked at or prodded at, especially not a guy like that,” Beckham said. “I’ve been through that journey already, I’ve been through this fire. That’s a part of me that’s able to help him in a way. This is a kid who cares about Cheap Football Jerseys , cares about winning. Whatever people make him out to be just because of his personality — if we were winning and he was still doing it, we’d all be here laughing. Because we’re losing, we want to kind of poke at him a little.

“I’m going to be the first one here to defend him every single time. I’ve always got his back. I know what it’s like. I’ve been there. … I understand how we’re looking for the negative. But he wants to win. He’s upset he’s not winning, or he hasn’t done to the best of his ability, that’s upsetting. Just upsetting. We want to be great.”

Despite the disappointing start, Mayfield maintained Wednesday that he still believes the Browns will turn the season around. Beckham piggybacked on that, specifically noting that he and Mayfield will begin to click through the air soon enough.

“The more games we have together, the better we’ll be, but it’s time for us to turn it on,” Beckham said. “You have a highly regarded quarterback [who] I think is a phenomenal player, and I just want to be able to help him in every which way I can.

“I have no doubt in my mind that at some point in time it’s going to be everything that we all talked about.”

Slay knew that before last week, when the Lions traded safety Quandre Diggs to Seattle — setting off a raw, honest media session two days later where Slay let his feelings about loyalty be known. He’s always known the business side of it, told to him early on in his career by his mentors in the locker room.

But now with the trade deadline come and gone and Slay being with the Lions for at least the rest of 2019, he’s ready to play — although he wouldn’t say if he’ll be available this week against the Cheap Oakland Raiders Jerseys (Sunday, 4:05 ET, FOX) as he’s nursing a hamstring injury.

How much longer Slay plays — and how much longer it’s in Detroit — he doesn’t know. He said he hasn’t thought about his playing future, insisting the only future he thinks about is the one with his family. And he’s not sure how many more years he wants to play football, either.

“I ain’t trying to play that long,” Slay said. “I ain’t Rod [Woodson] or Charles [Woodson], none of them. I ain’t trying to play no 20 years.”

Rod Woodson, who mentored Slay early in his career, played 17 NFL seasons. Charles Woodson played 18 years. Neither played their entire careers with one team.

Slay said he wasn’t sure how much longer he wants to play, but that it won’t be 20. Not close. When asked if 10 was a realistic number — he’s in his seventh season now, he said that would be “a great number.”

“But whatever the Lord bless me with,” Slay said. “How I’m feeling at Year 10, but whatever. Twenty for sure, no. Not even thinking close to that.”

Money isn’t an issue — Slay referenced good financial standing multiple times, including saying “I’m a millionaire, dude,” when asked if he didn’t at least care a little about whether or not he got dealt. No one in the organization talked to him about his comments or about whether or not he was on the trade block.

He said he wasn’t fined by the organization for his comments, either, and if they had done so, “it would have been a problem, too.”

Instead, Slay is going to continue to say what he wants, when he wants. As he said — the media asks him questions and he answers them. It’s just him being honest. It’s why he still says he didn’t care whether or not he was traded.

And he didn’t care if what he said last week might have gotten dealt as well.

“The whole point in time, y’all didn’t understand it, that I didn’t care if I did,” Slay said. “It is what it is, a whole business. All I was doing here is playing ball and trying to win games.”

DENVER — Down two goals late, Jonathan Huberdeau and the Cheap Florida Panthers Jerseys didn’t play desperate. They just played determined.

Huberdeau scored 29 seconds into overtime after he tied the game late in regulation, and the Panthers beat the injury-riddled Cheap Colorado Avalanche Jerseys 4-3 on Wednesday night.

“We don’t need to panic, even if we’re down two goals,” Huberdeau said. “We’re good. We know we can come back every game.”

Huberdeau sent a backhanded shot between the pads of Avalanche goaltender Philipp Grubauer for the win. He tied the game with 1:30 remaining on a wrist shot through traffic.

Florida trailed 3-1 with around eight minutes remaining. That’s when Aleksander Barkov picked a good spot for his first goal of the season, a power-play tally that started the Panthers on the comeback trail.

“Finally, I did something,” Barkov cracked. “I’m happy.”

Colton Sceviour scored a first-period goal for the Panthers, who went 2-1-1 on a four-game trip. Sergei Bobrovsky stopped 27 shots, including a glove save near the end of the third period.

Matt Nieto and Joonas Donskoi scored first-period goals, and Nathan MacKinnon added another in the third to make it a two-goal lead with 12:23 remaining. The Avs were without two big offensive pieces in Mikko Rantanen and Gabriel Landeskog due to lower-body injuries.

Grubauer stopped 34 shots, but couldn’t hold the late lead. Huberdeau scored the equalizer with Bobrovsky pulled for an extra skater.

“I just thought they were hungrier and playing a puck-possession game in the offensive zone and we didn’t close out enough plays,” Avalanche coach Jared Bednar said. “We have to be better at the defending aspect of that.”

Midway through the third period, Panthers center Jayce Hawryluk was reaching for the puck when he took a big hit from Colorado defenseman Nikita Zadorov that sent him crashing into the boards. Hawryluk got up slowly and retreated to the dressing room. Zadorov later got into a skirmish with Dryden Hunt. After being separated, Zadorov had words with the Florida bench before being sent off for roughing.

Panthers coach Joel Quenneville didn’t have an update on Hawryluk. He didn’t have an opinion on the hit, either.

“I haven’t seen it yet,” said Quenneville, who coached the Avalanche from 2005-08.

MacKinnon had a goal and an assist to give him at least a point in all 12 games this season. He matched Joe Sakic (1988-89) for the fourth-longest point streak to start a season in franchise history. The top mark is held by Mats Sundin, who had at least a point in 30 straight games to begin the 1992-93 season.

The Avalanche got gritty goals in the first period from Nieto and Donskoi. Nieto poked in a puck while falling to the ice, and Donskoi knocked in another one near the net to give Colorado a 2-1 lead.

Things turned a little testy at the end of the second period. Hunt stabbed at a puck after Grubauer grabbed it. Cale Makar didn’t like it and shoved Hunt. Then Grubauer pushed Hunt in the helmet. Meanwhile, away from the play, Nazem Kadri and MacKenzie Weegar began fighting. They both drew 5-minute penalties.

Given Colorado’s rash of injuries, Bednar juggled his lines — all except the third unit. Nieto, Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Matt Calvert quickly found a connection that Bednar doesn’t want to disrupt. The trio combined on Nieto’s first goal of the game. They have a combined 21 points.

“That’s a game where we have to walk away with two points,” Nieto said.

Grubauer turned in a big save in the first period when a puck deflected off the skate of Avalanche defenseman Mark Barberio and was headed into the net. Grubauer swung his arm around to swat it away.

Makar celebrated his 21st birthday Wednesday but didn’t have a point. His nine assists in October were the most in a month for a rookie defenseman in Avalanche history.

Game notes
Panthers D Aaron Ekblad had two assists. … Bellemare wore the “A” as an alternate captain. … F Jayson Megna made his Avalanche debut after being recalled from the Colorado Eagles of the AHL. … Colorado F Colin Wilson was scratched with a lower-body injury.

DETROIT — Dylan Larkin scored and led a defensive effort to slow down Connor McDavid.

Larkin and Patrik Nemeth had goals in the first period, and the Cheap Detroit Red Wings Jerseys defeated the Cheap Edmonton Oilers Jerseys 3-1 Tuesday night to end an eight-game losing streak.

Larkin had the challenge of being on the ice when McDavid was skating for much of the night and responded well enough to hold the superstar to one assist and three shots.

“I thought Larkin’s line did a really good job on McDavid until the second half of the third period,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. “Larks plays his best hockey when he matches up against other teams’ best.”

Jimmy Howard made 31 saves for the Red Wings, who won for the first time since Oct. 10 against Montreal.

“I guess it’s a relief for us,” Larkin said.

Larkin converted on a power play 7:41 into the game, lifting the puck from the front of the crease. Nemeth, who signed as a free agent last summer, scored his first goal with the Red Wings less than a minute later.

“We knew they were going to come out fast because of their losing streak, and then we let them get a couple goals early on,” Edmonton center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins said. “I thought we fought our way back into the game, but we have got to find a way to score.”

A long scoreless stretch for both teams ended with 7:12 left when Leon Draisaitl scored from the right circle to pull Edmonton within one.

Edmonton had a 4-on-3 power play shortly thereafter but could not take advantage despite McDavid and Draisaitl putting shots on net.

“All their lines and their defensemen can skate,” McDavid said. “And, they do a good job of clutching and grabbing to clog up the middle.”

The Oilers entered the game as the Cheap NHL Jerseys No. 1 team on the power play and ended it scoreless with the man advantage for the first time this season when earning three or more power plays.

“Our goalie was our best player,” Larkin said. “We needed that.”

Filip Hronek added an empty-net goal late to seal a much-needed victory for the rebuilding Red Wings.

Mikko Koskinen stopped 25 shots for the Oilers, who have dropped four of their last five after opening the season 7-1.

Koskinen, who entered 5-0, gave up two goals on the first seven shots he faced before keeping his team in the game.

Speedy forward Andreas Athanasiou had a pair of breakaways for Detroit and was denied each time by Koskinen.

“It’s a heck of a lot harder to chase a game than it is to play with the lead,” Oilers coach Dave Tippett said. “That’s just how this game is built right now. It’s frustrating, but this wasn’t a lack of effort. We’ve just got to find some scoring in our lineup somewhere.”

Game notes
Oilers general manager Ken Holland, who left Detroit when Steve Yzerman was hired to replace him earlier this year, was given an ovation during an early break in the game. … Detroit assigned RW Evgeny Svechnikov to the AHL’s Grand Rapids Griffins and recalled Joe Hicketts from the Griffins. … Detroit removed LW Adam Erne from injured reserve and put LW Justin Abdelkader on IR retroactive to Oct. 23. … McDavid played in his 300th NHL game.

Custom Nike Hockey Adidas Jerseys Near Me

PITTSBURGH — Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys endured a brutal stretch in the opening days of the season in which high-profile players headed to injured reserve with alarming regularity.

Yet rather than panic, head coach Mike Sullivan used it as an opportunity to make sure the good habits he believes his team will need to win in one of the Cheap NHL Jerseys most competitive divisions become ingrained. Take fewer risks on defense. Make the simple pass on offense.

Do both well enough for long enough and Sullivan knows the scoring will take care of itself, kind of the way it did during a 7-1 demolition of the Cheap Philadelphia Flyers Jerseys on Tuesday night.

The Penguins poured in four goals during a 6:05 span of the first period — matching their first-period total on the season coming in — and Pittsburgh rarely let up in its biggest regular-season blowout over their cross-state rivals in 11 years.

“We’re playing the game the right way, the way we want to play it and when we all buy in the way the guys are buying in right now, I think we’re a very good hockey team,” Sullivan said. “Tonight we were able to finish on some of the chances we got early in the first period. I give our players credit. They had the right mindset from the drop of the puck.”

Sidney Crosby, wearing a facemask as extra protection after getting hit in the head by a shot over the weekend, had a goal and two assists to boost his career point total against the Flyers to 102. Dominik Simon and Dominik Kahun also had a goal and two assists apiece for Pittsburgh, which finished a busy October 8-5-0, not bad considering forwards Evgeni Malkin, Bryan Rust, Nick Bjugstad and Alex Galchenyuk were among the group that watched the majority of the action from the press box while sidelined with injuries.

Though Malkin remains out indefinitely with a lower-body injury, the others have made their way back, giving an already confident group a noticeable boost.

“I think you feel the energy,” Crosby said. “When guys come back in the lineup they’ve been sitting around for a while, they’re eager to get out there and I think that energy can help you. I think everyone for the first period there especially, everyone was involved and that really feeds the whole team when you can get everyone going like that.”

Jared McCann, Justin Schultz, Zach Aston-Reese and Jake Guentzel also scored for Pittsburgh. Matt Murray stopped 29 shots to win for the sixth time in his last seven starts.

Oskar Lindblom got his sixth goal for the Flyers, but Philadelphia was simply overwhelmed by the Penguins during a first-period onslaught in which Pittsburgh beat Brian Elliott four times in just more than six minutes. Elliott, given the start two days after Carter Hart was pulled in a 5-2 loss to the Cheap New York Islanders Jerseys, stuck around to finish with 30 saves but the Flyers were never in it over the final two periods.

“For sure, there’s some anger in here,” Elliott said. “We have to be controlled about it, too. You have to take what you can from this game and move on. We know we didn’t have what we needed to win out here. You could see that in pretty much every aspect of the game.”

Schultz’s first goal of the season came on an innocent flick from above the right circle 5:57 into the game on a shot that fluttered over Elliott’s right shoulder. While Rust and Kahun occupied three Philadelphia defenders at the side of the net just more than two minutes later, McCann skated into the slot and flipped the puck past Elliott to double Pittsburgh’s lead. The din from McCann’s goal had barely died down when Crosby’s drop pass to Simon gave him plenty of room to beat Elliott and give the Penguins their third goal in a span of 2:49.

Crosby’s assist gave him 100 points in 68 career games against the Flyers. By the end of the period, he pushed the total to 101 thanks to a pretty cross-ice pass from Simon that Crosby turned into his fifth goal of the season and 42nd all-time against Philadelphia. The score also capped Pittsburgh’s first four-goal first period since Dec. 17, 2011, against Buffalo.

Murray, given little to do while his teammates pounded Elliott early, made sure the cushion stood up. Only Lindblom’s goal 1:57 into the third prevented Murray from posting a second straight shutout.

“It was horrible,” Philadelphia center Sean Couturier said. “Embarrassing. We didn’t come out strong. They were ready. They gave it to us.”

Game notes
Philadelphia went 0 for 4 on the power play. The Penguins were 0 for 3. … The Flyers scratched D Samuel Morin. … Pittsburgh scratched D Chad Ruhwedel and Juuso Riikola and C Sam Lafferty. … Pittsburgh has allowed five even-strength goals in its last five games.

NEWARK, N.J. — This time, the Cheap Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys eked out a victory.

Barely.

Tyler Johnson scored 1:16 into overtime and the Lightning rallied to beat the Cheap New Jersey Devils Jerseys 7-6 on Wednesday night, avoiding their first three-game losing streak since late March 2018.

“Did the game play out like we wanted in the end? Sure it did,” said Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper, who complained about his team taking too many penalties and losing momentum and rhythm time and again. “I was proud of the way the guys rallied to bail this out.”

Ondrej Palat scored twice for the banged-up Lightning, who surrendered a tying goal to Kyle Palmieri in the waning seconds. Alex Killorn, Brayden Point, Anthony Cirelli and Mathieu Joseph also scored, and Curtis McElhinney made 36 saves.

“Huge points but there’s still room for improvement,” said Palat, who had the primary assist on the game-winner. “We need to be better in our own zone, stop on pucks and win battles. There were too many chances we gave up, and we need to be better.”

Palmieri scored three goals and Jesper Bratt had two for the Devils. Sami Vatanen scored early in the third period for a 5-3 lead, and Cory Schneider had 16 saves.

“Look I mean I am probably not going to say a whole lot,” Schneider said. “My teammates played well enough to win. We deserved to win that game and scored six goals and should win going away. The difference tonight was in net so the game speaks for itself.”

Johnson’s fourth of the season came from the inside of the right circle after Ryan McDonagh had a chance in close.

“Mac and Palat made tremendous plays there,” Johnson said. “I kind of got lost in the slot and everyone was just kind of down and out and Ondrej made a great play to me and I was just able to put it in.”

It looked as if Tampa Bay was headed for a win in regulation when Palat broke a 5-all tie on a turnaround shot from the right circle with 3:57 left.

But Palmieri forced overtime by scoring on a rebound with 7.4 seconds to play. It was his first hat trick with New Jersey and the second of his career.

Palmieri, Bratt and Vatanen scored three straight goals to turn a 3-2 deficit into a 5-3 lead in the opening minute of the third period.

Playing their second game in as many nights, the Lightning found a way to tie the game at 5. Cirelli deflected a shot by defenseman Jan Rutta past Schneider at 2:45. Joseph tied it at 7:45 when his centering pass deflected into the net off the skate and stick of Devils forward Taylor Hall.

Hall was annoyed after the game with the Devils’ fans, saying he feels the team is battling its fans after a 2-5-3 start.

“We’re 1 for 3 on the power play and getting booed,” he said. “It’s a tied game and we are getting booed. That’s a tough environment to play in, especially when you are home. I know when we are playing somewhere and their fans start booing it’s a fun environment for the away team to play in. I understand the fans’ frustration. After the game if they are booing us losing that’s fine.”

Game notes
The Lightning played without F Pat Maroon, who got hurt during Tuesday night’s 4-1 loss to the Cheap New York Rangers Jerseys … Tampa Bay called up Fs Cory Conacher and Alexander Volkov and D Luke Schenn from the minors earlier in the day. Only Conacher was not in the lineup. Volkov, a 2017 draft choice, made his NHL debut. … Bratt was a healthy scratch in the Devils’ last game, Friday night against Arizona. … Palmieri’s other hat trick was with Anaheim.

Wholesale Nike NBA Authentic Jerseys Review

LOS ANGELES — Kawhi Leonard is only four games into his tenure back home in Los Angeles, and Paul George is still several games away from his Cheap Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys debut. Everybody is still getting to know each other on this reconfigured roster.

The Clippers have enough talent to keep stacking victories during this introductory process — particularly against teams like the Cheap Charlotte Hornets Jerseys, who have even more work to do.

Leonard had 30 points, seven rebounds and six assists, and Lou Williams scored 23 points one day after his 33rd birthday in Los Angeles’ 111-96 victory over Charlotte on Monday night.

Montrezl Harrell scored eight of his 19 points in the fourth quarter, and Landry Shamet added 16 in the Clippers’ third win in four games to start a season with championship aspirations.

After following up their impressive season-opening victories over the Lakers and the Warriors with a shocking 130-122 loss to the Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys two days ago, the Clippers managed to play enough defense in the second half to secure a comfortable win over the young Hornets. Their last two performances have been nowhere near complete, but the Clippers are working through it.

“There’s so many things that we can get better in,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “And you just see them, like screening, timing, knowing where each other is at. There’s so many new parts on the floor, and I just feel like we’re nowhere near what we’re going to be. Not even close, and that’s a good thing. But during that time, you’ve still got to win games. You’re in the West. You’ve just still got to tick off wins.”

The Clippers pulled away with a 16-5 run spanning the final two quarters, stretching their lead to 96-79 with 7 1/2 minutes to play. Charlotte made an 11-2 surge, cutting the lead to single digits on Miles Bridges’ 3-pointer with 4:16 left, but Harrell and Williams made big shots down the stretch.

“We’ve got to come in every game with a defensive hat on first, and we did that tonight,” Leonard said. “It’s still early. We’ve got a long road ahead of us. We’re still building chemistry, getting to know each other on the floor. I wouldn’t say we’re there yet. We’ve got to keep going.”

Terry Rozier had 17 points to lead six Hornets scoring in double figures in the second game of a four-game trip. Devonte Graham had 14 points and 12 assists, while Cody Zeller added 14 points and 13 rebounds for Charlotte, which has lost three straight after a season-opening win over Chicago.

“I like the way we competed against two of the better teams in the league,” Charlotte coach James Borrego said. “We played even better tonight. Probably our best performance of the year defensively.”

Indeed, Charlotte appeared to have more favorable defensive matchups against these Staples Center co-tenants than they did against the Lakers. But one night after the Hornets managed only 39 points in the second half of a loss to the Lakers, they scored only 42 in the second half against the Clippers.

“I feel like we’re growing,” Graham said. “Even (against the Lakers), I feel like we took a step. We came out tonight to fight and be aggressive, but they did a good job on us in the second half.”

RECENT EDGE

The Clippers have won 10 straight over the Hornets at Staples Center since February 2009. Los Angeles has won 10 of its last 11 overall against Charlotte.

KAWHI’S ASSISTS

Leonard has added improved playmaking skills to his already formidable offensive arsenal since arriving in LA. Two days after setting a career high with 10 assists in Phoenix — which surpassed his previous career high of nine, set two days before that against Golden State — he had five in the first half against Charlotte, including a sublime bounce pass through traffic to Ivica Zubac shortly before halftime.

TIP-INS

Hornets: Zeller sported a bandage on the cut above his left eye from his mutual elbowing with Davis in their loss to the Lakers on Sunday night. … Malik Monk scored 15 points.

Clippers: Zubac had a career-high five blocked shots. … Shamet surpassed his season high with four 3-pointers in the first six minutes of the game. … George is out for at least six more games while he recovers from a shoulder injury, but Rivers said they consult frequently about potential offensive sets that will benefit George.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Rookie Ja Morant had the best game of his young career and veteran Jae Crowder hit a game-winner to make the Cheap Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys first victory of the season memorable.

Crowder’s 3-pointer from the top of the key as time expired in overtime lifted the Grizzlies to a 134-133 win over the Cheap Brooklyn Nets Jerseys on Sunday night.

“We’ve been playing well these first two games,” Crowder said of losses to Miami and Chicago. “We put five quarters together and came out with a win.”

The winning shot was possible after Spencer Dinwiddie split a pair of free throws with 7.4 seconds left, Grizzlies reserve Solomon Hill grabbing the rebound when the second shot was missed.

After a Nets foul in the backcourt, Memphis inbounded the ball with 3.7 seconds left. Morant, who led the Grizzlies with 30 points, dribbled behind his back as he crossed half court, then handed out his ninth assist, shuffling a pass to the trailing Crowder for the 28-foot game-winner.

“I believe in Jae the whole way, and he delivered for us,” Morant, the second pick in last summer’s Cheap NBA Jerseys Draft, said of the winning basket.

“Anytime you lose at the buzzer, it’s always a tough loss,” Nets coach Kenny Atkinson said.

Dillon Brooks scored 21 points and Jonas Valanciunas had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Grizzlies. Morant also blocked Kyrie Irving’s 17-footer at the end of regulation to keep the score tied at 120-all.

Crowder’s winning 3-pointer was his second basket of the game, as he finished with six points. His previous 3-pointer came with 1:09 left as Memphis took its first lead of overtime at 131-128.

Irving finished with 37 points, seven rebounds and seven assists for the Nets. Caris LeVert added 27 points, Dinwiddie had 16 points on 3-for-13 shooting from the field.

“What a game, huh?” Grizzlies first-year coach Taylor Jenkins said. “. Obviously, to get our first win of the season it took a complete team effort.”

Morant led that “team effort,” helping Memphis reach overtime by scoring 17 points in the fourth quarter. Morant’s layup — his final points of the period — tied the score at 120 with 7 seconds left. He blocked Irving on the ensuing possession as time ran out in regulation.

“I head-faked,” Irving said. “I tried to shoot a fade. He’s got long arms. He got a good contest on it and blocked the shot.”

TIP-INS

Nets: DeAndre Jordan started for the first time this season, replacing Jarrett Allen, who opened the first two games at center. Allen entered midway through the first quarter. … LeVert started the game missing his first six shots, but finished 11 of 22. … Irving has scored at least 20 points in 11 of the 12 games he has played against the Grizzlies. … Brooklyn has lost eight straight road openers. The franchise’s last win in a road opener was in 2011 against Washington.

Grizzlies: Valanciunas knocked down a 3-pointer in the first quarter, the first of the season for the 7-footer. Then he hit another a minute later, matching his career-high for 3-pointers made in a game. … Rookie F Brandon Clarke, listed as questionable with back soreness, played. … Memphis has led at halftime in all three games this season. … Morant was 13 of 22 from the field for the game and 21 of his points came after halftime.

GAME BALL

After Crowder’s game-winning basket, the ball ended up on the opposite end of the court from the Grizzlies’ bench. Assistant coach Brad Jones sprinted down the court to grab it. In the Grizzlies locker room, the ball was presented to Jenkins in recognition of his first win as an NBA coach.

ENDORSING JENKINS

Atkinson and Jenkins were on the Cheap Atlanta Hawks Jerseys staff together under Mike Budenholzer. Atkinson said the Grizzlies made the correct choice in hiring the Memphis coach. “I know they are really well-coached, I can tell you that,” Atkinson said of the Grizzlies before the game. “I think he’s going to be great. … He’s going to establish a great program. He has a lot of talent to work with. They are going to be a team on the rise, I’m almost sure of it.”

Wholesale Adidas Throwback Jerseys NHL Store Reviews

After the Cheap Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys were humiliated by the Cheap Columbus Blue Jackets Jerseys in a four-game, first-round sweep back in April, there were three paths ahead of them.

One of them was the path of least resistance. The one where a team that amassed 128 regular-season points and 325 goals believed its kung fu was still the strongest style, and viewed the upset as a glitch rather than a systemic failure.

Steven Stamkos, the team’s captain, said that path was closed. “I think the biggest mistake a player could make is saying, ‘Let’s just get back to the playoffs and do it different this time.’”

There was also the path of overreaction. It’s the path that another offensive juggernaut took back in 2010, after the Cheap Washington Capitals Jerseys were shocked in a No. 1 vs. No. 8 series by the Cheap Montreal Canadiens Jerseys. Until the Lightning were broomed by Columbus, that Capitals loss to the Habs was the most psychologically damaging one to a franchise that I had ever witnessed.

During the series, then-Washington coach Bruce Boudreau said, “I don’t think we have to blow everything up and change the world to be successful.” By December, during an eight-game losing streak, Boudreau would announce to the Capitals’ locker room that they’d start playing the neutral zone trap.

It was a crisis of confidence I witnessed play out over multiple years, as Boudreau was fired for a true trap-happy coach in Dale Hunter, who was replaced by an offensive coach in Adam Oates, who led the Capitals to their only non-playoff season in the past 11, and was fired along with GM George McPhee.

The Lightning haven’t gone down this path. At least not yet.

“In the regular season, we were pretty successful. What happened for us in the playoffs, this doesn’t have to be a big huge system change,” said coach Jon Cooper. “But are there tweaks? Do you have to adapt? There’s no question.”

The final path is the one the Lightning are currently strolling down, filled with tweaks and adjustments and calibrations and fine-tuning. The one where they identify some parts that need repairing, without scrapping the engine.

“Our group is known as a high-flying, high-octane offensive team,” said Stamkos. “It’s great. It’s entertaining hockey. But come playoff time, it’s a different animal. We realize that.”

The thing about this path? It’s a bumpy one. Wednesday night’s win over the Cheap Pittsburgh Penguins Jerseys was their third in four games after a middling start, and following a 6-2 dismantling at the hands of the Cheap Colorado Avalanche Jerseys at home. They’re now 5-3-1. They’re seventh in offense (3.44 goals per game) and 17th in defense (3.22 goals against per game). They’re under 50% in shot attempts at 5-on-5, and they’re 12th in expected goals percentage at 5-on-5 (51.28).

This is not the team that jumped out to a 7-1-1 record last season. It could be. But that’s not what the Lightning are trying to be right now.

“We have a plan. That’s what we have. And we are slowly improving and executing our plan. It’s been really nice to watch what we’ve done,” said Cooper after the Penguins game. “We’ve won three of four. We’ve played some playoff teams in that run. When you get rewarded with the results, it stamps a little validity to it. But there’s so much time left.”

So what’s the plan? The Penguins game offered a glimpse:

1. Take fewer penalties

The Lightning took more minor penalties (640) than any other team in the NHL since 2017. They had more penalty minutes in three of the four losses against Columbus. And in their Game 7 conference final losses to the Capitals in 2018 and the Penguins in 2016. Against Pittsburgh on Wednesday, they had four to the Penguins’ 10 penalty minutes. That’s the plan.

2. Make smarter, simpler plays

Pardon the pun, but the Lightning were a force of nature when they were on last season. They won 30 games by a margin of three or more goals. It’s easy to let the fundamentals slip when you’re driving a steamroller. So the plan says that getting back to basics in the defensive end is essential. “We weren’t really inclined to make those easy plays at the end of last year,” Stamkos said.

3. Taste adversity

Cooper infamously said after last season that the Lightning didn’t play enough “meaningful games” during their breeze to the Presidents’ Trophy. It’s a notion that has been parroted by other Lightning players leading into this season: That it came too easily for them, compared to the mad sprint the Blue Jackets made to the playoffs.

So a little adversity could go a long way. Like having to rally with two third-period goals to defeat the Penguins. The Lightning trailed going into the third period just 21 times last season. It’s happened four times in nine games this season.

Cooper’s message in the locker room before the third against the Penguins? “There’s still a lot of time left in this game. We’re doing a lot of good things here. It does suck to be down 2-1, but we felt we shouldn’t be,” he said.

The best thing for the Lightning, honestly? To be a little worse. To put the work in to play the style of hockey they believe is necessary for playoff success. To toughen up so a punch to the mouth in the playoffs doesn’t stagger them. It’s not ideal to slip down into the 2-vs.-3 matchup in the first round. But it might bring out something in the Lightning that a series many felt was a de facto bye didn’t.

What’s wrong with the Lightning is that they’re trying to get it right.

“Do you ever really put [the upset] away? It’s going to be in some record book somewhere. It’s going to be details, forever,” said Cooper. “For sure it’s going to come up. But we’ve accepted it. It happened. We have to own what happened.”

This is a challenging one. Doug Glatt is the titular goon from the movie “Goon” and “Goon: Last of the Enforcers.” He never played for the Rangers, at least in canon. But as someone who respects the fan-fiction community … like, maybe in this person’s mind he did play for them? It’s an entirely new category — the FanFic Foul — but we’ll actually allow it, for the sake of art.

The enemy of my enemy is John Tortorella

John Tortorella is not a fan of the shootout. Steve Babineau/NHLI via Getty Images
I don’t have much in common with Blue Jackets coach John Tortorella. We’re both American. We have a mutual affection for the canine species. We’ve both yelled at Larry Brooks. That’s about it.

But it turns out, we have additional common ground. Torts hates the shootout.

As you know, the shootout is a plague that has infected hockey for the past 14 years. It’s illogical. A competitive team game should not end with the artificial removal of teammates from its definitive moment. There’s not a pass attempted nor a defenseman on the ice playing in position. And it’s worth the same number of points as a victory earned during 60 minutes of 5-on-5 hockey! That’s nuts!

The shootout’s biggest sin? That a gimmick created to generate highlights and send the fans home satisfied has grown tedious. This is especially true after the NHL was administered a syringe of adrenaline to its heart in the form of the 3-on-3 overtime. Predictability has no home there. Compare that with the shootout, where you might not know who will score the game-winning goal, but you sure do know how it’ll be scored. (Hint: on an undefended breakaway.)

The irascible Tortorella says it’s time for the shootout to go. “That overtime’s dynamite. They should just … I don’t know what we’re waiting for to get rid of this shootout stuff. I know they’re worried about the time limit. [But] it’s not going to last long. If it goes past five minutes, it’s not going to be many more minutes after five. I think it’s just dynamite.”

Did we … just … become … BEST FRIENDS?

Seriously, the 3-on-3 is appointment viewing. No matter the game, if it’s going to OT, I’m firing up Center Ice and watching it. And then flipping back to the “Shark Tank” reruns if/when the shootout hits.

I understand the issues with regular-season fatigue and the concerns for injury. All the more reason to win quickly. I understand goalies hate 3-on-3. But who cares about them, for they’re paid to deprive joy.

Dump the shootout. Extend the 3-on-3. John Tortorella thinks it’s dynamite. And you don’t want to make him angry, do you?

Dreger: I am not Paul Marner
Back in June, we brought you news of an Cheap NHL Jerseys meme born out of the Mitch Marner free-agent contract drama with the Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys. Darren Dreger, the venerable hockey insider with TSN, was a leading newsmaker on that beat. Many fans, in and out of Toronto, speculated that Dreger was a mouthpiece for the Marner camp, and in particular, the player’s father Paul Marner. This speculation eventually mutated into a bit where Dreger would tweet news and then legions of fans would reply, “Thanks, Paul.” It was all quite savage.

Dreger recently appeared on The Scrum Podcast, which covers Canadian sports media, and discussed his reaction to the accusation.

“I can say to you, with 100 percent sincerity and honesty, that until very recently I had never had a single conversation or communication with Paul Marner. Not a single one. I only spoke to him after the fact, and that was very recently and very brief,” said Dreger. “All it takes is some nimrod on social media to make this loose connection, someone finds it funny and then it takes on a plague-like sort of development. I didn’t get bogged down by it. I know I covered this story with integrity.”

BOSTON — After losing a goal to an offside call midway through the first period, David Pastrnak got it right back with a pass to himself between his own legs.

This one counted for Pastrnak, who scored his league-leading 10th of the season and added an assist for the Bruins in a 4-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night.

“I tried it a couple times in practice but it didn’t work. It worked today, so I was kind of lucky,” said Pastrnak, who reached 300 career points with the goal.

Brett Ritchie and Par Lindholm also scored for Boston, which was playing for the first time since a 4-3 loss in overtime at Toronto on Saturday night. Tuukka Rask made 28 saves in his 500th career game.

Pastrnak appeared to score on a rebound at 10:48 in the first, but the goal was waved off after Toronto challenged and replay showed the play was offside.

Pastrnak scored one that counted with 2:45 left in the first with some nifty stickhandling in front of the Toronto net. After taking a pass from Marchand, Pastrnak slipped the puck between his own legs, then redirected it past Michael Hutchinson to give the a 1-0 lead.

“There’s times through the year when pucks bounce against you and there’s times when they bounce for you. Right now pucks are bouncing his way,” Marchand said of Pastrnak. “He has that ability to make those high-end plays. He puts himself in really good positions to capitalize on opportunities.”

Pastrnak said the Bruins didn’t let up despite the disappointment from having their first goal waved off.

“I knew we were going to get another one. We were feeling good,” he said.

Kasperi Kapanen and Alexander Kerfoot had a goal and assist apiece for the Maple Leafs, who were coming off an overtime loss to Columbus at home on Monday night.

Coach Mike Babcock said the Leafs improved from the night before, when they led 3-2 after the second but couldn’t hold off the Blue Jackets in the third, then the OT.

“It was one of those games. It was a grind the whole thing. There wasn’t much room for either team,” Babcock said. “In the end, the game was right there in the third period. . We were unable to get it done.”

Michael Hutchinson stopped 35 shots.

The Maple Leafs tied after falling behind 1-0 and 2-1, but couldn’t get anything past Rask in the third period.

“I just don’t think we spent enough times in the offense zone and weren’t heavy enough on pucks. They kept on breaking out and applying pressure on our D,” Kapanen said. “We spent a lot of time in our own zone and eventually they’re going to score when the flow of the game goes like that.”

Ritchie’s unassisted goal 6:35 into the third put Boston back up 3-2 and Lindholm got his first of the season when he poked in a rebound with 2:03 left in the game.

Kapanen tied it on a one-timer off a crossing pass from Kerfoot with just under 4 1/2 minutes into the middle period. Marchand’s goal put Boston up 2-1 at 6:09, as Pastrnak got another point with an assist.

Kerfoot tied it 2-2 on a power-play goal with 7:06 to go in the period.

The Bruins beat the Maple Leafs for the 300th time, the most victories for Boston over any opponent. … Rask, the first Boston goalie to play in 500 games with the club, clapped and waved to the crowd when he was recognized for the milestone during a time out in the first period. … Bruce Cassidy coached his 200th game with the Bruins. … Marchand has points in eight straight games. … Toronto fell to 0-2-1 in the second of back-to-back games.

Did Dreger see the “thank you, Paul” stuff that was directed toward him?

“Social media is what it is, right?” he said. “Everyone can create burner accounts and everyone can take their cheap shots and whatever. I don’t pay a lot of attention to the replies or mentions. I really, truly don’t. The only time I even acknowledged it is publicly is on the radio here in Toronto, when it started getting directed to the family.”

In the end, Marner signed his six-year contract extension before the start of the season, and everyone walked away from the bargaining table somewhat happy, even if it was a contentious process.

“What I didn’t understand,” said Dreger, “was how some of the so-called fan base of the Toronto Maple Leafs turned on a player who has been nothing but fantastic, on and off the ice.”

Thanks, Paul.

(Just kidding. Dregs put this issue to bed succinctly on this pod, which was also a good listen regarding his work as an insider.)

Winners and losers of the week

This might seem like an odd flex given that Mikko Rantanen is going to miss “weeks” with a lower-body injury. But anyone who watched his foot turn in a way that feet don’t turn has to be relieved that it isn’t “months.”

After the Sharks’ overtime loss in Buffalo, captain Logan Couture went rip city on two teammates who stayed out on the ice too long, which contributed to the game winner. “It’s an inexcusable change. Two guys stayed out too long, looking for offense. … It’s a selfish play,” he said. The players in question? Meier and Labanc, whose poor change led to Jack Eichel’s goal. Couture doubled down on the comments behind closed doors as well.

As of Thursday, the Capitals defenseman led the entire NHL in scoring with 20 points, three more than Connor McDavid. I’ve said for the past two years that Carlson’s been criminally overlooked in the Norris Trophy voting: Dude won a Stanley Cup, followed it with a 70-point season and still couldn’t crack the top three last June. What he needed was a hype man to get his name out there. Alex Ovechkin is that hype man.

Loser: Luca Sbisa

The Cheap Anaheim Ducks Jerseys signed the free-agent defenseman on Tuesday. He was all set to report to the AHL team in San Diego with, again, the chance to move up and live life in Anaheim. Except that when he hit waivers, the Cheap Winnipeg Jets Jerseys — a team whose qualifications to join their blue line at this point are apparently skates and a pulse — claimed him. So, in summary: Not San Diego. Not Anaheim. Instead, Manitoba, as winter nears.

Winner: Ralph Krueger

I wrote about the Sabres coach this week, but that’s not why he’s a winner. He’s a winner because a team from Buffalo has the best record in the NHL (8-1-1) and it’s entirely possible that it won’t be an aberration this time.

Loser: Alexander Gulyavtsev

The head coach of the KHL’s Amur Khabarovsk was fined 300,000 rubles (or $4,700) for threatening to set referee Viktor Gashilov’s car on fire. He later said he was joking, adding, “I just said car, it’s not as if I said apartment.” You know, call me a pacifist, but I prefer the NHL’s coach’s challenge system.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Carolina Panthers strong safety Eric Reid wouldn’t use the words “revenge” or “bitter” to describe his feelings about Sunday’s game against unbeaten San Francisco.

“I just don’t forget,” Reid said Wednesday about facing his former team as the Panthers (4-2) prepared for the 49ers (6-0).

This will be Reid’s first game as an opponent at San Francisco, where he first took a knee with quarterback Colin Kaepernick in 2016 and was not re-signed following the 2017 season after filing a collusion grievance against the NFL.

From the end of the 2017 season until the Panthers signed him in late September 2018, Reid went unsigned after the NFLPA filed a grievance on his behalf, accusing the league of blackballing him for taking a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

This past offseason, the Panthers signed Reid to a new three-year deal worth slightly more than $22 million. He has kneeled during the anthem before every game at Carolina.

Kaepernick, who also filed a grievance against the NFL, hasn’t played since the 2016 season. Both players’ grievances against the league have been settled.

All of that factors into how Reid feels about the San Francisco organization that made him the 18th pick of the 2013 draft.

“Definitely the way Colin was treated. Definitely the way I feel like I was treated there,” Reid said when talking about his emotions toward the team. “The way they run the organization. Ask anybody who has been there and they’ll tell you the same.”

Reid also wasn’t happy the 49ers moved him from strong safety to a hybrid safety/linebacker position in 2017 to replace linebacker NaVorro Bowman, who was released after the team failed to meet his request for a trade.

“I remember they changed my position in a contract year,” said Reid, selected to the Pro Bowl at safety as a rookie. “I remember they released NaVorro, who led the league in tackles [in 2015], and asked me to play his position.

“They told me it was best for the team. I disagreed. I thought the NFL tackling leader was best for the team, but I did what I was told.”

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — After a whirlwind 24 hours, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders spent Wednesday getting used to his new home with the San Francisco 49ers — one of two undefeated teams remaining in the NFL.

The 49ers acquired Sanders and a 2020 fifth-round pick from the Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys on Tuesday, sending a 2020 third- and fourth-round pick back in exchange.

About three hours after the deal was complete, Sanders was on a plane to the Bay Area, ready to take a crash course in coach Kyle Shanahan’s offense.

Apparently, the new surroundings — namely, going from a two-win team to a six-win team — were much needed.

“It feels good [to be here],” Sanders said Wednesday. “Obviously, I’ve got a lot of love for the Broncos. I spent six years there, won a Super Bowl there and I love that organization. But to be a 49er, it’s like a new energy and new environment. It reminds me of when I left the Steelers and went to the Broncos.

“I needed a change of scenery, and it feels good to have a change of scenery. And what a great locker room the 49ers have here. I’m just trying to come in and bring even more positive energy and bring another spark to this offense.”

After weeks of trade rumors, Sanders said he met with Broncos president/general manager John Elway after a Week 6 win against the Cheap Tennessee Titans Jerseys and they mutually agreed it was time for the receiver to move on.

“Me and John had a conversation in terms of the direction that I wanted to go and me expressing that,” Sanders said. “He listened. And hearing that, hearing the trade rumors, I think we both decided that it was best for me to go. You know, we got two more years left — or three more years left — of playing Cheap Football Jerseys, and I’m trying to win a championship, and obviously, we’ve got a young locker room over there. So we both made the decision that if a trade comes about, that he would keep me posted and possibly trade me.”

Sanders, who is expected to play against the Cheap Carolina Panthers Jerseys on Sunday, went right to work upon arrival in Santa Clara around 9 p.m. Tuesday. Receivers coach Wes Welker, who was a former teammate of Sanders’ in Denver, greeted him at the hotel.

Welker began feeding him information for a few hours before Sanders went to sleep. Sanders woke up at 5 a.m. to take a physical and attend a wideout meeting at 7:20 a.m. before a walkthrough, more meetings and an afternoon practice.

Sanders said Shanahan’s offensive scheme is about 90% the same as what he had in Denver under offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello, who spent the past two years as the Niners’ quarterbacks coach.

Aside from diving into the playbook, Sanders has had just enough time to meet his new teammates and coaches. Shanahan, in particular, left quite an impression with his choice of footwear.

“Getting here and just seeing how he is, seeing he’s very laid back. Funny guy, light on his toes,” Sanders said. “I noticed in the team meeting. I was like, ‘I can’t wait to get home and tell my wife that the head coach is wearing Yeezys.’ I was like, that’s cool. That’s one cool coach.

“The environment here is just so light, but at the end of the day, we have a concentration and we have a focus on the task at hand. I can tell that his team is a reflection of him, and it’s cool to see.”

Before the Niners and Broncos played last season, Shanahan heaped praise on Sanders. On Wednesday, Shanahan gave further insight into how long he has coveted his new wide receiver.

“Emmanuel has been a guy that I have personally wanted since probably the last eight years, since he became a free agent in Pittsburgh,” Shanahan said. “I was a huge fan of him coming out in the draft and everything he’s done since. … I’m pumped he’s here.”

Shanahan declined to offer any clues on how he will use Sanders, but he did acknowledge Sanders “can do it all” and is versatile enough to play any of the team’s wideout spots.

Scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent after the season, Sanders figures to be at least a 10-game rental for the Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jerseys.

“Once I become a free agent, [winning is] going to factor in a lot,” Sanders said. “A lot of people don’t understand. Yeah, the money’s good. I’ve made my fair share of that. I think it’s about happiness. It’s about, ‘Is it worth it?’ … I love playing football. I love being happy. I love playing games. I think that’s going to be the ultimate deciding factor in where I go.”

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said he was not worried about Reid’s emotions being a factor when reminded of the heated exchange between Reid and Malcolm Jenkins during last year’s game at Philadelphia.

An assistant coach and official had to restrain Reid away from the Cheap Philadelphia Eagles Jerseys safety during player introductions. After the game, Reid called Jenkins a “sellout” because Jenkins stopped kneeling after the Cheap NFL Jerseys donated $100 million to the Players Coalition for causes important to the coalition.

“Guys play for whatever their reasons are, and Eric has his own reason,” Rivera said. “Eric will do what he does. He’s a professional. He gets on the field and plays the game the way it needs to be played. I’m not worried about Eric.”
