The Montreal Canadiens are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2009 after posting a pair of road victories to begin 2014 Antworten

The Montreal Canadiens are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 2009 after posting a pair of road victories to begin 2014-15. Air Max 1 Wholesale Australia . They will put that unbeaten record to the test tonight in Philadelphia as they visit the Flyers. The Canadiens downed the rival Toronto Maple Leafs on Wednesday and followed with a shootout victory the following night in Washington. The Habs shook off a slow start Thursday night to beat the Capitals 2-1. Brendan Gallagher scored the winner in the fifth round of the shootout, beating Braden Holtby with a snap shot after Tomas Plekanec tied the game in the third period with his third goal of the season. Plekanec had two goals against the Maple Leafs in the opener against the Leafs, including the winner with 43 seconds left. His goal on Thursday came not long after Montreal had one disallowed because Rene Bourque made contact with Holtby in the crease, and just minutes before another would-be goal was overturned upon review. Dustin Tokarski made 29 saves for Montreal, most of them after 19-year-old Capitals rookie Andre Burakovsky scored early in the first period. He blocked shots from Burakovsky and 50-goal scorer Alex Ovechkin in the shootout. Back-to-back games, on the road, it was a good test for us, said Tokarski. They came hard at us in the first (period). We expected that. They kind of took it to us there, but after that guys regrouped and showed a lot of character and got the two points. Montreal No. 1 goaltender Carey Price, who made 24 saves in Wednesdays win at Toronto, expects to get the start tonight. Price is 8-9-0 with a 2.67 goals against average and .916 save percentage in 18 career games against the Flyers. Philadelphia has dominated the Canadiens in recent seasons, winning two straight, four of five and 10 of the last 13 encounters. Montreal also has lost its last seven trips to the City of Brotherly Love, having last won in Philly on April 2, 2010. Including the playoffs, the Habs have dropped 10 in a row at Wells Fargo Center. The Philadelphia Flyers fired their head coach after starting 0-3-0 last season. With the Flyers record at 0-2-0 heading into Saturdays game against the unbeaten Montreal Canadiens, perhaps Philadelphia head coach Craig Berube should be fearing for his job. Berube took over Phillys coaching reins when Peter Laviolette was axed three games into the 2013-14 season. However, it does seems unlikely the Flyers will pull the plug on Berube in similar fashion, especially after he righted the ship last year and returned Philadelphia to the playoffs. Still, the Flyers, who went 1-7-0 to begin last season, dont want to get off to another poor start after having to dig themselves out of a big hole last season. Philadelphia dropped a 2-1 decision Wednesday in Boston and then lost its home opener the following night to New Jersey, falling to the Devils 6-4 after getting behind 3-0. The Devils held a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes and pushed their cushion to three goals early in the second period. The Flyers, however, tied the game at 3-3 before the end of the second and were also tied at 4-4 in the early stages of the third. Former Flyer Dainius Zubrus scored the game-winning goal at 7:13 of the third period and Mike Cammalleri added an empty-netter to account for the final 6-4 margin. Wayne Simmonds had two goals and an assist for the Flyers, while Claude Giroux and Vincent Lecavalier also lit the lamp. Yeah we did a good job coming back in the game, we were playing aggressive and playing our game. Its frustrating, said Giroux. Steve Mason turned aside 20-of-25 shots in defeat. He has started both games this season and it could be backup Ray Emerys turn between the pipes on Saturday. Flyers defenseman Braydon Coburn missed Thursdays game with a lower-body injury and he expects to sit out Saturday as well. If Coburn is out for a prolonged period it would be a huge blow to Philadelphias already-thin defense, which is without veteran blueliner Kimmo Timonen due to blood clot issues. Weve gotten better news than we had (Thursday), Flyers general manager Ron Hextall told his teams website of Coburn. Im hoping short-term now instead of mid-term. Before I was thinking weeks as opposed to months and hopefully now its less than that. Nick Schultz replaced Coburn in the lineup on Thursday and logged 14 minutes, 46 seconds of ice time. Cheap Air Max 1 Australia . Chris Johnson singled with two outs off left-hander Jerry Blevins (1-1), and Schafer pinch ran. With a 2-2 count, Schafer ran on the pitch and Upton dropped a single in front of Bryce Harper. Schafer already was rounding third when Schafer bobbled the ball. Cheap Air Max Sale . The Rainbow FlickNext up is the Rainbow Flick, or as you probably know it, the trick that everybody at soccer camp thought they knew how to do. . This was one of them. Omar Infante homered and tied a career high with six RBIs to carry the Kansas City Royals over the Baltimore Orioles 9-3 on Sunday.This is a very good team. I know they didnt rise to the challenge of playoff urgency last year but their statistical success was extreme. And yes, there is a degree of truth that statistics dont always convey the whole picture, but they are accurate indicators of what has improved and what the priority is to improve. For the Stampeders, there is little to find a discouraging word about. Here are the categories of pure football efficiency that the Stampeders finished first in compared to the other eight teams in the league last year: points scored, 30 per game; net offense, 383 per game; rushing yards, 141 per game; fewest quarterback sacks allowed; best second to first conversion rate; most quarterback sacks on defence; fewest giveaways, only 27 over 18 games; and tied with the Roughriders with the best takeaway/giveaway ratio at +19. Really, the only two areas of concern are punt and kick returns and red zone defence in which Calgary finished seventh best. This is a very good team. Quarterback will be an interesting battle. It should be a battle between the youth and arm skill of Bo Levi Mitchell and the intensity with determination of Drew Tate. Mitchell has youth on his side, Tate has the experience; and for Tate a surprising amount of experience. This is now his eighth year in the league and now is the time, but I said that at this time last year too. They are different types of quarterbacks and personalities. Tate is kind of confrontational and aggressive while Mitchell is more smooth and mellow, I would say. Both do work well under pressure and both have excellent futures. Still, it will be very interesting to see who wins the job and if they can keep it for 18 games. Its a nice problem to have but a difficult decision to make between the two. With quarterback depth a unique luxury and in some ways taken care of, the next strength is kicking. YYou can make an easy argument that no CFL team has a better combo punter/kicker than Rob Maver and Rene Parades. Air Max 1 Australia Online. Especially in the field goal kicking, the streak they had last season was both entertaining and game-changing. There will come a day where some field goal kicker makes every kick, does not miss one over the course of the season. The art of kicking has developed into a science more than ever before and a calm concentrated demeanor is more significant than ever before. Yes, its a lofty goal but obtainable also attainable. Maybe in Calgary. Also interesting outside of the priority of a great quarterback and the critical importance of good kickers is depth at running back. With Jon Cornish, Martell Mallett and Jock Sanders there are now three good ones. Of the three, the best may be Sanders, especially if he returns punts and kicks replacing Larry Taylor. Calgary finished fifth best in both punt and kick returns so there is room for improvement. By no means was Taylor the sole issue as a returner is as good as his blocking, especially initially. Still, with Sanders you have acceleration in the excess and a quality running back who can start. The Roughriders will miss Kory Sheets, Keith Shologon, and Craig Butler, but losing Sanders to their most direct competition is a double issue. Evaluating personnel is subjective in that how one person may see the present ability of one player or their potential is always different than another. But right now the combination of 24 starters and key depth contributors in Calgary has no clear superior. It may not be of obvious significance right now, but wait until October and November. And that player that in June you never thought would be a starter responds as one when he has to, it can change everything. I know for the third time, the Calgary Stampeders are a very good team.
