Throwback Minnesota Wild Adidas Hockey Hoodies For Cheap

After contentious public lobbying from both head coaches, the NHL suspended Winnipeg Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey for Game 5 of the series against the Minnesota Wild for his cross-check to the head of center Eric Staal.

The Jets lead the Wild 3-1, with Game 5 scheduled for Friday in Winnipeg.

In a scoreless Game 4 late in the first period Tuesday, and with the Wild on a power play, Morrissey attempted to defend Staal in the slot in front of the Jets’ goal. In doing so, his stick caught Staal on the neck with significant force. There was no penalty on the play, but the NHL decided that the play was worthy of a suspension after a hearing Tuesday afternoon, and it announced the decision that night.

The NHL noted in its ruling that the front of the net is a place of “constant battle,” and sticks are frequently used by defensive players to establish position. To that end, they agreed with Morrissey’s argument that the contact wasn’t intentional, with an intent to injure. However, they said the height of his stick made this a “reckless strike to an opponent’s neck, with sufficient force to merit supplemental discipline.”

This is the first time Morrissey has been suspended or fined in his NHL career.

The suspension comes after comments from Wild coach Bruce Boudreau following Game 4, in which he accused the on-ice officials of intentionally ignoring Morrissey’s cross-check. “My take is that the refs looked at it, and they decided not to call it because we were already on the power play. And that cost us the game,” he said.

Jets coach Paul Maurice shot back Wednesday, saying that the incident was a penalty and nothing more and accusing Boudreau of lobbying the NHL.

“There’s no intent on this. You’ve got a real smart coach on the other bench who has all the focus on that and not the game now. Why wouldn’t you? Morrissey is a great defenseman for us. If you had a chance to get him out, you’d play it as hard as you could,” he said.

Morrissey’s loss for Game 5 could be even more significant if defenseman Tyler Myers, who missed Game 4 due to injury, can’t go for the Jets.

Cheap Adidas NHL Ryan Miller Replica Anaheim Ducks Jerseys Free Shipping

RALEIGH, N.C. — Ryan Miller made 34 saves, including nine in overtime, to help the Anaheim Ducks to a 4-3 shootout win against the Carolina Hurricanes at PNC Arena on Sunday.

Miller, who made his Ducks debut, made saves against Sebastian Aho and Victor Rask in overtime. Miller missed the first nine games of the season because of a wrist injury.

“I was happy to just get going,” Miller said. “I’ve been nervous and anxious for about a month to get moving with the team and start contributing. They gave me this game and I really wanted to get it.”

In overtime, Miller stopped Justin Faulk’s early backhand bid from the slot before denying Aho’s shot with the right pad. He then turned Rask’s chance away with his blocker after a long pass from goaltender Scott Darling.

“As I get closer to game ready, I’m trying to do a lot of breakaways with the guys,” Miller said. “Your gap and your depth on the ice when you’re facing that shooter is kind of critical. It’s something you want to practice when you’re out for a while. It definitely paid off.”

Corey Perry scored the only goal of the shootout for Anaheim (6-4-1). Jakob Silfverberg tied the game with 4:48 left in the third period.

Jeff Skinner, Jordan Staal and Faulk scored for Carolina (4-4-2). Darling made 22 saves.

The Ducks jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period. Ondrej Kase scored at 10:48 when he put a wrist shot past Darling. Derek Grant made it 2-0 when he was left alone in the slot at 17:14.

Carolina answered with a power-play goal from Jeff Skinner at 19:53. Miller stopped Derek Ryan’s shot, but Skinner was lurking at the top of the crease for his team-leading seventh goal.

The Hurricanes tied it 2-2 on Staal’s third goal of the season at 13:33 of the second period. Elias Lindholm fed Aho, who wrapped a pass from behind the net to Staal in the low slot.

Faulk gave Carolina a 3-2 lead on a hard slap shot from above the left circle at 18:33 of the second period. It was Faulk’s first goal of the season.

“It was a good response in the second. We got back in the game,” Staal said. “But we need to find ways to continue to move forward when we’re up in the third and find ways to bury teams.”

Silfverberg’s first goal of the season tied the game 3-3 when he took a drop pass from Andrew Cogliano and scored on a slap shot at 15:12 of the third period.

“It’s been a little bit of a struggle for me so far this year,” said Silfverberg, who scored 23 goals last season. “I just closed my eyes and tried to shoot it. It wasn’t my best shot, but I think [Darling] was screened by the defenseman, so he had a tough time seeing it.”

“You know he saved our butt on numerous occasions. Specifically in overtime and in the second period, [the Hurricanes] took the game over and he was the last man standing there on a few situations that you have to credit him with.” — Ducks coach Randy Carlyle on goalie Ryan Miller

 

“We had a team come in off a back-to-back, and we let them kind of dictate the first period. We didn’t play a complete game. Yeah, we got to overtime, but there’s a lot more to the story than just seeing an overtime loss.” — Hurricanes defenseman Justin Faulk

Ducks captain Ryan Getzlaf was struck in the face by a puck on the first shift of the game. He went to the dressing room for treatment before coming back for six more shifts, but he did not return after the first intermission. Carlyle said Getzlaf made the decision to not return to the game. “We just felt it was in his best interest to be evaluated by our doctors to see what the issues are,” Carlyle said. “He didn’t feel comfortable going out there, so he couldn’t play.” … With his seventh goal, Skinner established the best 10-game start of his NHL career. … The Hurricanes played a penalty-free game.

Authentic Adidas NHL Womens Black Tampa Bay Lightning Jerseys Cheap Sale

The Montreal Canadiens are looking to Jonathan Drouin to provide a spark they hope will lead to more timely offense. The cost of acquiring the 22-year-old forward in a trade from the Tampa Bay Lightning on June 15 was Montreal’s top prospect, defenseman Mikhail Sergachev, who was the No. 9 pick in the 2016 NHL Draft. But the opportunity to add one of the most talented young Quebec-born players in the NHL proved irresistible to general manager Marc Bergevin. The Canadiens have won one Stanley Cup Playoff series since 2014, when they reached the Eastern Conference Final. Drouin has moved to center and will play on the top line with left wing Max Pacioretty, who had one assist in a six-game loss to the New York Rangers in the Eastern Conference First Round, when Montreal scored 11 goals. Their offensive contributions will be crucial after right wing Alexander Radulov left to sign with the Dallas Stars. The Canadiens signed 34-year-old right wing Ales Hemsky to replace a bit of the offense they lost with Radulov’s departure, and defensemen Karl Alzner, David Schlemko and Mark Streit also were added with the entire left side of the defense needing to be replaced with Andrei Markov, Alexei Emelin and Nathan Beaulieu leaving. “You’ve got to find your identity and our team’s identity has always been speed, working hard and being a good forechecking team, and trying to play teams that way,” right wing Brendan Gallagher said. “And regardless of the new bodies that come in, you know, they’re going to play different ways, but I think it’s still going to be our identity as a hockey team and what the Montreal Canadiens are all about.” Here is a look at the five keys for the Canadiens, the inside scoop on their roster questions and projected lineup for the 2017-18 season:   5 KEYS 1. Healthy Price The importance of goalie Carey Price to the Canadiens’ success was obvious in 2015-16 when a right-knee injury limited him to 12 games. They slid down the standings and missed the playoffs without their All-Star goalie, but they bounced back to win the Atlantic Division last season with Price healthy. Their success this season, and in the future, will be tied to Price, who on July 2 signed an eight-year, $84 million contract extension ($10.5 million average annual value) that begins after this season. Top 10 Goalies: Carey Price 02:36 • August 7th, 2017 2. Centered on Drouin Drouin’s arrival gives coach Claude Julien an opportunity to address the Canadiens’ search for a legitimate No. 1 center. Drouin played primarily on the wing for Tampa Bay, but he was successful as a center with Halifax of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League from 2011-14 and has embraced the move. That takes pressure off Alex Galchenyuk, who has not been able to establish himself at center through his first five NHL seasons and may not get another opportunity, at least in Montreal, where Julien and Bergevin agree he will remain on the wing for the time being. Drouin nets PPG on amazing effort 00:52 • January 20th, 2017 3. Left side of defense remade Defenseman Shea Weber will have a new partner. Alzner has been paired with Jeff Petry, but who will play with Weber remains a mystery as the Canadiens embark on a season without Markov in the lineup for the first time since 1999. Jordie Benn, David Schlemko and even 19-year-old Victor Mete are all potential candidates. Bergevin said the defense will have to replace Markov by committee, and Streit may be an option to fill that role on the power play. Schlemko’s top-shelf tally 01:03 • April 21st, 2017 4. Power play on rise Drouin gives the Canadiens the kind of offensive threat they haven’t had on the power play since the prime of forward Alex Kovalev from 2005-09. “There’s a lot of things that I think Jonathan can see and do, and we’ll continue to work with that,” Julien said.   5. Tweaks to system Julien began his second stint as Canadiens coach after Michel Therrien was fired Feb. 14. After adjusting the way Montreal played rather than implementing a new system, Julien has a fresh canvas to work with. “There are tweaks, there are little things, but it’s nothing major,” Gallagher said. “It’s kind of something that you wouldn’t notice just sitting watching a game, you’ve got to really pay attention, and I won’t give everything away. I’ll let other teams figure that out.”   ROSTER RUNDOWN Biggest lock Pacioretty led the Canadiens in points (67) and goals (35) last season. It was the sixth straight season he led them in points and the fifth straight he was first or tied for first in goals. His average of 19:11 of ice time per game led Canadiens forwards. The 28-year-old has scored at least 30 goals in four straight seasons and remains the clearest option for the top line. He is a key component on the power play and one of their top penalty-killers. Pacioretty rifles home PPG 00:52 • February 26th, 2017   Biggest battle Left wing Charles Hudon has impressed in his bid to stick with the Canadiens after three full seasons in the American Hockey League. Forward Michael McCarron worked on his speed and conditioning during the offseason in his push to avoid being sent to Laval, the new home of Montreal’s AHL affiliate. “You want to try and get under the other team’s skin and be that power guy that gets to the net and gets under guys’ skin and gets them angry at you and maybe gets them off their game,” McCarron said. “So that’s in my game, it’s always going to be in my game, and that’s definitely a part that I try to play with.” Hudon buries Plekanec’s feed 00:54 • September 24th, 2017   Most intriguing addition Hemsky left the Stars as a free agent to sign a one-year, $1 million contract with the Canadiens on July 3, the same day Radulov left Montreal to sign with Dallas. Hemsky is hardly a straight replacement for what the Canadiens lost in Radulov, but the 34-year-old right wing embraced a more responsible style of play during three seasons with the Stars under coach Lindy Ruff. His offensive skills remain strong, and the Canadiens hope he remains healthy. Hemsky’s nifty goal 00:43 • March 25th, 2016   Biggest potential surprise Mete is a long shot to make the Canadiens. Nonetheless, he has been making the most of his opportunity to learn from Weber, who he has been paired with since the beginning of training camp. “He seems like a sleeper right now,” Pacioretty said. “He’s a really good player, he’s got great poise with the puck, he’s a great skater, and I’ve been really impressed with what I’ve seen.”   PROJECTED LINES Max Pacioretty — Jonathan Drouin — Brendan Gallagher Alex Galchenyuk — Phillip Danault — Ales Hemsky Charles Hudon — Tomas Plekanec — Artturi Lehkonen Paul Byron — Torrey Mitchell — Andrew Shaw Jordie Benn — Shea Weber Karl Alzner — Jeff Petry David Schlemko — Mark Streit Carey Price Al Montoya
