VANCOUVER - Last seasons anaemic power play was one of the big reasons why the Vancouver Canucks missed the playoffs for the first time in six years. Babe Herman Jersey .Its early, but the man-advantage unit is showing signs of life with the 2014-15 campaign just around the corner.Radim Vrbata scored on the Canucks only power-play chance in Mondays 4-2 pre-season loss to the Arizona Coyotes, giving Vancouver a 4 for 8 success rate over its last two exhibition games.The free-agent signing is starting to mesh with Henrik and Daniel Sedin on the top line, and ripped a shot that got through Arizona goalie Mike Smith midway through the third period to briefly give the Canucks life.I think the more we practice together, the more we play together you learn the tendencies and you feel more comfortable, said Vrbata, who also scored with the man advantage against the Calgary Flames on Friday. I think offensively, it can always be better but its going pretty well.(Points) is whats expected from that line. If were doing that were giving our team a chance to win.Vancouvers power play finished 26th last season but has provided some new looks under rookie head coach Willie Dejardins, and new talent in the form of Vrbata and rookie forward Linden Vey.I think its just the options we have. Every time I get the puck it feels like theres two or three guys open and ready to take pucks to the net, said Henrik Sedin. It feels like every time we step on the ice something is going to happen. Its a good feeling.However that feeling didnt last long Monday as Joe Vitale had a goal and an assist and Smith made 23 saves for Arizona.Brandon McMillan, Shane Doan and David Moss also scored for the Coyotes, who improved to 4-0-2 in exhibition play. Oliver Ekman-Larsson added two assists.Derek Dorsett had the other goal for Vancouver (3-2-0), which got 31 saves from Ryan Miller.They outworked us, and thats a concern, said Desjardins. We have to look at that. We need a better effort if were going to win. Thats what training camps for. Weve got to be ready when the season starts.Tied 1-1 after the first period, the Coyotes struck twice in the second to put the game out of reach. MacMillan made it 2-1 at 10:55 when his shot was stopped by Miller and rebounded in off Vancouver defenceman Luca Sbisa.Doan then stretched the lead to two on the power play with 1:15 left, deflecting home Mikkel Boedkers shot from the point.A lot was made before the game about Desjardins putting former first-round picks Bo Horvat, Hunter Shinkaruk and Nicklas Jensen together on a line. The trio made their first real impact with the score still tied 1-1 early in the second, buzzing around the Coyotes zone but failing to find the mark.Daniel Sedin then had a great chance off a feed from brother Henrik that Smith handled, before Alexandre Burrows ripped another shot wide of the Arizona goal from the slot.Arizonas Martin Erat almost made it 4-1 four minutes into the third period, firing a shot off the post that stayed out.Horvat, Shinkaruk and Jensen then had another energetic shift but again couldnt get anything past Smith before heading off to a big cheer from the crowd at Rogers Arena.We knew that we were the young guys and we looked to create energy, use our feet, finish checks a€” and I thought we did that, said Shinkaruk. Theres things in our game that could have been better, but I thought all in all it wasnt a bad game.Vrbata, who signed with Vancouver in the summer after five years with the Coyotes, gave the Canucks some hope with nine minutes to go, but Moss sealed it off a big rebound in front of Miller with 1:41 remaining.The Sedin line was really good early. I thought they had lots of good plays a€” theyre dangerous on the power play, said Desjardins. Its just a process of Vrbata finding his spot in that line and working in.Both teams dressed lineups similar to the ones they will go with once the regular season gets going. Missing out for the Canucks were defencemen Dan Hamhuis and Kevin Bieksa, and forwards Zack Kassian, Brad Richardson and Jannick Hansen. Notable absences for the Coyotes included forwards Sam Gagner and Lauri Korpikoski.Vancouver opened the scoring at 4:43 of the first period when Chris Higgins one-timed a shot from the faceoff dot off the rush that Smith only got a piece of. The puck dribbled towards the goal-line and the hard-charging Dorsett poked it home.Arizona tied things at 12:02 on a play Miller might want to have back. The Coyotes flipped the puck out of their zone and the Vancouver goalie decided to stay in his net instead of going out to play it, allowing Vitale to move in and beat him through the pads.I just didnt think I could make it there, said Miller. I didnt want to race out in pre-season and extend myself and tried to play the breakaway.It was the first goal allowed by Miller a€” who also signed as free agent a€” in pre-season after he faced a mere seven shots against in just over 30 minutes of action against the Calgary Flames on Friday.I felt pretty good. A couple tough bounces in the second period (or) its a little tighter game, said Miller. Still a few things to chip off and dial in, but I was happy overall with my awareness in the game.Notes: Canucks defenceman Frank Corrado suffered an upper-body injury in the second and did not return. Dejardins said the team will know more on Tuesday. ... The Canucks play their next pre-season game in Edmonton on Thursday before wrapping up the exhibition schedule on Saturday at home, again against the Oilers. Corey Seager Jersey . Hoffman, the former star closer, will evaluate and help co-ordinate all pitchers at Double-A, Triple-A and the big league team. Byrnes says Hoffman "will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers. Jackie Robinson Jersey . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. . LOUIS -- The Tampa Bay Rays have placed right-handed pitcher Joel Peralta on the 15-day disabled list with an undisclosed illness.Sebastian Vettel has been told he has to earn a contract renewal at Ferrari beyond 2017 by team boss Maurizio Arrivabene. Vettel has been urged to focus on the car by Arrivabene following suggestions he is trying to replicate Michael Schumachers dynamic with the team, with the seven-times world champion famed for involving himself in every part of the Scuderias operation.Amid a frustrating season for Ferrari, in which they have failed to win a race and have slipped behind Red Bull as Mercedes nearest challengers, four-time champion Vettels own form has come under scrutiny with team-mate Kimi Raikkonen posing a closer challenge than in 2015. Vettel crashed out of last weeks Malaysia GP at the first corner, earning a three-place grid penalty for this weekends Japanese GP, and admitted at Suzuka his form had been up and down in 2016.The 29-year-olds three-year contract runs to the end of next season, but Arrivabene has hinted they will not be focusing on any renewal until 2017.Sebastian today has a contract with us, we have work to do this year, and also the next. During the season we will see, Arrivabene told Italys Sky F1 at the Japanese GP. Sebastian Vettel runs into Nico Rosberg at the start of the Malaysia GP. Fernando Valenzuela Jersey. Everybody has an objective. I have, the team has, Sebastian has, everybody has. So its right everybody has to earn their position and salary.The departure of technical chief James Allison in July, and the teams admission that their development programme had stalled over the summer, has cranked up the pressure on an outfit whose last Drivers Championship success came nine years ago.Asked if Ferrari would do what they did during Michael Schumachers less successful early years at the team in the late 1990s and hand Vettel a new deal in times of trouble, Arrivabene replied: Today, times are a little changed in the sense that what worked with Michael might not necessarily work with Sebastian.Sebastian just needs to focus on the car. He is a person who he gives so much and that sometimes means an interest a bit of everything. [Vettel] does not do it with polemical spirit, he
