TAMPA, Fla. [url= /]Omri Casspi Jersey[/url] . -- Having compl Antworten

TAMPA, Fla. Omri Casspi Jersey . -- Having completed their regular-season series, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Montreal Canadiens soon could find themselves battling in the post-season. Tyler Johnson scored the go-ahead goal on a short-handed breakaway late in the third period and the Lightning clinched a playoff berth with a 3-1 victory over the Canadiens on Tuesday night. "Just being in the right spot and getting lucky sometimes," Johnson said. The win and losses by New Jersey and Washington gave Tampa Bay its first post-season berth since 2011 and only its second in seven years. Montreal ended a five-game winning streak, but also qualified for the post-season by virtue of the losses by New Jersey and Washington. Canadiens goalie Carey Price took some consolation in advancing to the post-season. "Were disappointed with our game today, but big picture, weve got to be happy with that," he said. The win moved Tampa Bay, with a game in hand, into a second-place tie with Montreal in the Atlantic Division. The second- and third-place teams in each division will meet in the first round of the playoffs. "Its just one game, but its really the 76 games all bottled into one," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "What you are really striving for is to win the Stanley Cup, but you cannot win the Cup if you dont get into the playoffs." With teammate Nate Thompson serving a minor penalty for boarding, Johnson picked up a loose puck near the Montreal blue line, skated in on Price and backhanded a shot inside the left post with 7:19 remaining in the game. Canadiens right wing Brendan Gallagher was on one knee in the low slot when he redirected a rebound past goalie Ben Bishop to open the scoring 10:18 into the first period. Ryan Callahan made it 1-1 on a power play 9:19 into the second, skating through the left circle toward Price and lifting a shot high into the net. Tampa Bay was on a power play when Alex Killorn closed out the scoring with an empty-netter with 45 seconds left in the third period. Bishop finished with 25 saves, while Price stopped 30 shots. Tampa Bay winger Teddy Purcell slammed a shot past Price with 11.7 seconds left in the second period, but the officials ruled forward J.T. Brown made contact with the goaltender and disallowed the goal. The call drew an angry response from Tampa Bay fans after a replay appeared on the video screen. The crowd also became irate when Montreals Douglas Murray drew a match penalty for an illegal check to the head of fellow defenceman Michael Kostka, setting up a 5-on-3 advantage for the Lightning with 2:13 left in the game. "If the crowds reaction was anything after they saw it, then it seems that it was illegal," Cooper said. "Those are the hits you want to take out of the game. Im sure Murray wasnt looking to hit him in the head." Lightning forward Ondrej Palat, who earlier in the day was named the top NHL rookie for the second time in three months, assisted on the goals by Callahan and Killorn. NOTES: Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula, who came in with the longest points streak in the league at 12 games, came up empty. . Montreal C Tomas Plekanec returned after missing one game for personal reasons. . The home team won for the first time in the four-game season series. Lightning captain Steven Stamkos was sidelined with a broken leg for the first three games, each of which went to overtime tied at 1. . Price came in victorious in nine of his 10 previous starts. Bishop improved to 8-1-1 in his last 10. Nate Thurmond Jersey . Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Fiorentina levelled on aggregate in the 14th minute when Joaquin Sanchez Rodriguez headed back a long ball from David Pizarro and Pasqual smashed home an angled volley. Chris Mullin Jersey .Impact president Joey Saputo confirmed Thursday that he is part of a group of investors whose offer to buy the 105-year-old Italian club was accepted by the teams board of directors. . After falling 5-0 on home ice in a game that could have tied them for second in the wild card standings, Washington head coach Adam Oates had some strong words for Capitals superstar Alex Ovechkin.IRVING, Texas - The Dallas Cowboys have all kinds of answers for how the NFLs worst defence a year ago has improved despite losing its best player to injury, dumping the franchise sacks leader and letting the most productive lineman go to a division rival.Theres cornerback Brandon Carrs theory of growing up: You look different from 5 to 6 years old, right? he said, laughing.Or how about defensive co-ordinator Rod Marinellis idea that its so simple a 5-year-old could do it: And then, we dont change a lot.And finally, coach Jason Garretts take on players with something to prove: I think everybody has a story, and oftentimes you tap into what their stories are.Add them all up, and you have a team that kept New Orleans out of the end zone for three quarters and built a 31-3 lead a year after giving up an NFL-record 40 first downs in an embarrassing blowout loss.The Cowboys (3-1), who take a three-game winning streak into Sundays game against Houston (3-1), dont stand out defensively in the rankings because theyre giving up plenty of yards a€” including a bunch to Drew Brees and the Saints in the second half of a 38-17 win.But Dallas is among league leaders in takeaways with eight a€” a Marinelli staple a€” and in the top 10 in scoring defence, the other measure that matters the most to the man who took over the defence when Monte Kiffin was demoted after last season.Marinelli and Kiffin came in together a year ago to switch the Cowboys back to a four-man front after nearly a decade in the 3-4.Once we get our package right in the off-season, I think you stay with it, Marinelli said. So the players arent learning something new every week. Theyre trying to refine their skills. Theyre trying to play faster.The Cowboys opened free agency in March by cutting defensive end DeMarcus Ware in a salary cap move, and their off-season began with a season-ending knee injury to linebacker Sean Lee in the first practice. Dallas decided not to give some of that Ware money to defensive tackle Jason Hatcher, who led the team in sacks in 2013, and he signed with Washington. Zaza Pachulia Jersey. Now the defensive front is a collection of bargains, while Rolando McClain has the potential to be a playmaking leader of the linebackers after the former top 10 pick flamed out early in Oakland and walked away from the game twice in Baltimore. The Cowboys traded for him before training camp.I felt a group of guys that are hungry, McClain said of when he showed up at camp after missing the 2013 season. I was hungry.With Bruce Carter out against the Texans because of a quadriceps strain, each starting linebacker has missed at least one game. The Cowboys have adjusted by mixing and matching in their front seven.Dallas lost cornerback Morris Claiborne to a season-ending knee injury against the Saints. But there were already questions about whether the former top-10 pick could stay on the field ahead of undrafted fourth-year player Sterling Moore, who figures to have an expanded role against the Texans.After consecutive seasons with injury-depleted units, the Cowboys have reached a point where they dont seem to care whos on the field. And theyre making plays they werent in those two years.Were all students of the game and were trying to get this thing right, Carr said. The time is now. You cant keep waiting.In other words, you have to grow up sometime.NOTES: QB Tony Romo and DE Anthony Spencer kept with their weekly routines. Romo skipped another Wednesday practice after strong games the previous two times. Spencer, who played for the first time in more than a year against the Saints, skipped Fridays practice, just as he has all season since coming off the physically unable to perform list.___Online:AP NFL website: and Schuyler Dixon on Twitter at Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
