      Vasilevskiy was Bishop’s backup in Tampa Bay for parts of three seasons until Bishop was dealt to Los Angeles last February. Bishop holds the Lightning career wins record with 131, while Vasilevskiy has gone 26-5-3 since taking over the starting role. It was Bishop’s first game against Tampa Bay since the trade.
      Stamkos has 10 goals and an NHL-best 35 points after missing most of last season with a lateral meniscus tear. Mikhail Sergachev, Brayden Point, Jake Dotchin and Nikita Kucherov also scored for the Lightning, who have the NHL’s best record at 15-2-2.
      Radek Faksa scored for Dallas, and Bishop stopped 22 shots.
      MONTREAL (AP) – Derek Stepan and Christian Fischer scored power-play goals in the third period and Arizona rallied to beat Montreal for its first regulation victory of the season.
      Brad Richardson, Christian Dvorak and Tobias Rieder also scored for the Coyotes, and Antti Raanta made 33 saves. Arizona snapped a five-game losing streak to improve to 3-15-3.
      Brendan Gallagher, Paul Byron, Joe Morrow and Shea Weber scored for the Canadiens, and Charlie Lindgren stopped 27 shots.

      Toronto star center Auston Matthews was on the ice for the optional morning skate, but sat out his fourth straight game with an upper-body injury.
      NEW YORK (AP) – Johnny Boychuk scored the tiebreaking goal on a slap shot with 4:25 remaining and New York rallied to beat Carolina.
      Mathew Barzal had a goal and two assists, and Nick Leddy, Josh Bailey and Cal Clutterbuck each had a goal and an assist to help the Islanders remain one of two NHL teams without a regulation loss at home this season at 6-0-2. Jordan Eberle added an empty-netter, and Thomas Greiss finished with 28 saves.
      Sebastian Aho, Elias Lindholm, Noah Hanafin and Derek Ryan scored for Carolina.
      OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) – Patric Hornqvist and Jake Guentzel each scored in the second period and Pittsburgh held on to beat Ottawa Senators on Thursday night.

      Haula, David Perron, Jonathan Marchessault and William Karlsson each had a goal and an assist, and Reilly Smith added an empty-netter. Vegas improved to 11-6-1 in its debut season. Maxime Lagace had 19 saves.
      Brock Boeser and Bo Horvat scored for Vancouver. Jacob Markstrom made 25 stops.
      The teams were sent to the locker rooms with under a minute left in the second period when a fan seated in one of the corners was hit in the head by an errant puck. One of the officials on the ice threw towels to nearby spectators to help with the bleeding, and the fan was eventually taken away on a stretcher.
      There was no immediate update from the Canucks on the fan’s status.

      WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) – Bryan Little scored the deciding goal in a shootout and Winnipeg rallied from a two-goal deficit to beat Philadelphia .

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Drømmer om NHL-kamp på Lillehammer: – Tanken har slått oss" Today

      – Det er det som er drømmen, erkjenner prosjektleder <a href="http://www.mapleleafsprosale.com/dave-keon-jersey-c-1_35.html">http://www.mapleleafsprosale.com/dave-keon-jersey-c-1_35.html</a> for lørdagens begivenhet i Håkons hall, Kjell Stenberg overfor VG.
      Han har nok å henge fingrene i med kun timer igjen til hans klubb Lillehammer tar imot serieleder Storhamar til hockeyfest foran nesten 10.000 tilskuere.
      – Nå er det nært utsolgt. Her blir tilskuerantallet 9.700. Og naturligvis vil det være mange personer i sving utenom dette, så 10.000 kommer innenfor portene, sier Stenberg.
      Det knuser den tidligere norgesrekorden på 7 405 fra Hamar OL-Amfi og Storhamar mot Vålerenga i 2004.
      Det er første gang på 18 år at det spilles ishockeykamp i Håkons hall.
      Utsolgt og 9200 tilskuere er solid rekord for en innendørs-kamp i den norske eliteserien.
      Håkons hall-prosjektet er sparket igang grunnet Lillehammer Ishockeyklubbs 60-årsjubileum. Men med en ambisjon om å kunne ha én uke med is i arenaen hvert år.
      – Det er planen at barn- og ungdom skal få oppleve det hvert år, og at det hele avsluttes med en storkamp.
      – Storkamp ja? Det var 13.000 som så NHL i Stockholm denne måneden, er det mulig å få en sånn kamp hit?
      – Tanken har slått oss, sier Stenberg, som gjerne skulle sett Mats Zuccarello spille for sitt New York Rangers her i Norge.
      – Hallen står der, og vi <a href="http://www.mushiku.com/11-brendan-gallagher-jersey-c-1_47.html">http://www.mushiku.com/11-brendan-gallagher-jersey-c-1_47.html</a> vet allerede ved denne kampen at det er nasjonal interesse for å se ishockey i Håkons hall.

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Here's our early predictions for the Oscar acting races" Today

      With screenings of the last two major <a href="http://www.iceboxsf.com/shea-theodore-c-1_5.html">http://www.iceboxsf.com/shea-theodore-c-1_5.html</a> contenders — Steven Spielberg’s journalism drama “The Post” and Paul Thomas Anderson’s suspenseful love story “Phantom Thread” — set to start in the next few days, the field will soon be set for the critics groups to begin weighing in with their picks.
      Welcome to the Gold Standard, the newsletter from the Los Angeles Times that helps guide you through the ins and outs of the awards season leading up to the Oscars.
      I'm Glenn Whipp, The Times' awards columnist and your newsletter host.
      Early Oscar acting predictions
      Circling back to “Phantom Thread” and “The Post,” we can, based on the filmmakers’ and actors’ track records, presume certain things. Meryl Streep playing Washington Post owner Katharine Graham and Tom Hanks portraying the paper’s editor Ben Bradlee in a Spielberg movie would seem likely to be part of any awards season conversation. Streep has won three Oscars; Hanks has two. They have 25 nominations between them, with Streep earning the lion’s share.
      In the current political climate, you’re going be hearing a lot about this movie, which chronicles the decision to publish the confidential Pentagon Papers in 1971. The parallels between eras, with a U.S. president threatening a free press, are impossible to miss.
      Meanwhile, as I write in an early stab at predicting the Oscar acting categories, it’s absolutely certain that Daniel Day-Lewis will earn a nomination for “Phantom Thread.” And I never make guesses about a movie I haven’t yet seen — unless it’s Day-Lewis, our greatest actor, working with a gifted filmmaker like Anderson. You can read my predictions here.
      I enjoyed talking to Judi Dench a few weeks ago for an Envelope cover story, which you can read here. She’s every bit as lovely as you’d imagine, but also quite mischievous. I loved her interactions with Stephen Frears, who has directed her in five movies, including the current historical drama “Victoria & Abdul.” Frears is a famous grump, and Dench took great delight in playfully needling him whenever possible. <a href="http://www.idesi9n.com/james-neal-c-1_32.html">http://www.idesi9n.com/james-neal-c-1_32.html</a> Which isn’t to say that she doesn’t also adore him.
      "He's monosyllabic, that one," Dench told me before Frears arrived. "It's like squeezing something out of a stone, like trying to understand another language." Like learning how to speak Frears? "Precisely. And once you learn to speak Frears, you're OK. You sense him. And you trust him too."

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "No dice for Ferguson as Vegas opts not to start Blazer against Canucks" Today

      Dylan Ferguson’s storybook start at Rogers Arena was a non-starter.
      When Vegas Golden Knights coach <a href="http://www.groyse.com/james-neal-c-1_19.html">http://www.groyse.com/james-neal-c-1_19.html</a> Gerard Gallant announced after his team’s Thursday morning skate that Maxime Lagace was fit and would get the call in goal against the Vancouver Canucks in the evening, there were a couple of sighs of disappointment from media members.
      Ferguson receiving the nod would have made for a story that would have written itself. The 19-year-old is an emergency call-up from the WHL’s Kamloops Blazers. He’s also a Lantzville native and Nanaimo minor hockey product.
      He’s been with the big club since Oct. 31, when Oscar Dansk (lower body injury) became the third Vegas netminder to head to infirmary, following Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) and Malcolm Subban (lower body). Ferguson made his NHL debut Tuesday, coming in for the final nine minutes against the Edmonton Oilers after Lagace was forced to leave with an injury.
      Ferguson gave up a goal on two shots in an 8-2 Edmonton victory.
      Lagace, it seems, is fine enough to play now. Gallant denied any thought to starting Ferguson against the Canucks.
      “We wanted to make sure Max was OK,” said Gallant. “The other night we took him out late because he had some lower body cramps. He had a good practice yesterday and Max has played real well for us, giving us a chance to win.”
      Subban is back skating with the Golden Knights and could seemingly be ready to play again soon, which would ship Ferguson back to Kamloops. He’ll remain the Vegas backup until then.
      Gallant, of course, said Ferguson is better for the experience.
      “He was all smiles, even after a tough loss,” Gallant said of Ferguson’s demeanour following the Edmonton game. “The kid was excited, He got into an NHL game.
      “He’s been here for 2½ weeks, facing NHL shooters. That’s going to help him down the road.”
      • Vancouver coach Travis Green didn’t mince words when he announced Thursday that winger Jake Virtanen would be a healthy scratch for a third consecutive game.
      There was good buzz around Virtanen, 21, coming out of training camp, and he drew rave reviews earlier in the campaign in particular for his play alongside Henrik and Daniel Sedin. His last four games, though, have featured outings of just 6:19 and 7:19 minutes, respectively.
      “I want to get him back in there, but part of development is understanding that sometimes you have to wait for your chance and I think this is one of those times,” said Green. “I’m not going to put Jake in just for the betterment of Jake.
      “There’s a fine line between doing what’s right for an individual and doing what’s right for the team and there’s something to be said <a href="http://www.hdyapim.com/connor-murphy-jersey-c-1_50.html">http://www.hdyapim.com/connor-murphy-jersey-c-1_50.html</a> about lessons and learning them.”
      • Vegas forward Brendan Leipsic and Vancouver defenceman Derrick Pouliot were roommates for a time with the WHL’s Portland Winterhawks. They’ve stayed in close contacts through the years, Leipsic said.
      Pouliot was the eighth overall draft pick of the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2012 and was the CHL defenceman of the year in 2013-14. He had trouble catching on with the Penguins and was traded to Vancouver earlier this year. He’s seemed to fit in with the Canucks of late.
      Green was part of the coaching staffs with those Winterhawk teams, too.
      “Junior hockey went really well for a lot of us in Portland and it’s a jump (to the NHL),” said Leipsic, who was claimed in the expansion draft by the Golden Knights from the Toronto Maple Leafs, who had landed him in a Feb. 15, 2015 trade with the Nashville Predators.
      “You might not get your opportunity right away. You might not take advantage of it. There’s a lot of variables. I’ve been grinding it out myself.
      “It looks he’s found a home in Vancouver and he’s been playing well. I’m happy for him.”

    • Gerard Gallant, who has been through the <a href="http://www.eraneta.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_35.html">http://www.eraneta.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_35.html</a> expansion tango once before, is acutely aware his experience with the Vegas Golden Knights is a tad different from his experience with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
      Now, he can look down his bench and see bonafide NHLers — 30-goal scorers James Neal and Jonathan Marchessault, 20-goal scorers David Perron and Reilly Smith, top-four defenceman Nate Schmidt.
      Then, as a Jackets’ assistant, he looked down the bench and saw a bunch of problems.
      Now, despite losing their top three goalies to injuries, the Knights are in the mix in the Pacific Division and have the look of a team with legitimate playoff aspirations.
      Then, the Jackets won 28 games which actually represented good news for the first-year team. The bad news? They would make the playoffs once over their first 12 seasons.
      Now, Gallant can see a future with the Knights; a gleaming new rink just off the Vegas strip, engaged fans, boatloads of draft picks, including three in the top 15 and seven in the top 96 from this summer.
      Then, Gallant would survive his first three years as an assistant with the Jackets. He wouldn’t survive his fourth as the team’s head coach.
      “The (expansion) rules weren’t as good,” says Gallant, the Knights’ head coach in their inaugural voyage. “(In Columbus) we didn’t have as many talented players as we do now. We worked hard and competed every night. But it was third- and fourth-line players. It wasn’t the same as we’re seeing with our group.
      “(The Knights) know they have a pretty good team. If they work hard, compete and play the way they’re supposed to play, they can compete with anybody. I think they really believe that.”
      And they’re making others believe along the way.
      If you ever have half an hour to kill, ask an NHL executive about the Knights’ expansion agreement, the inconceivable advantages granted the league’s newest team and the injustice of it all. The Knights, without putting too fine an edge on things, made out like bandits this summer, putting together a team that is competitive right away while assembling a treasure trove of future assets.
      In addition to the take from this summer, there are two more second-rounders and two third-rounders coming in 2019 and two more second-rounders in 2020.
      I mean, the Knights got former Wild first-rounder Alex Tuch for a third-rounder and NOT taking Marco Scandella or Matt Dumba in the expansion draft; for assuming David Clarkson’s contract and not selecting Josh Anderson, David Savard or Jack Johnson they got William Karlsson, a first-rounder and a second-rounder from Columbus; for taking goalie Marc-Andre Fleury from Pittsburgh, they got a second-rounder.
      There was a lot of mumbling this summer <a href="http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/nate-schmidt-c-1_12.html">http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/nate-schmidt-c-1_12.html</a> that Knights’ GM George McPhee had held up teams for ransom during the expansion process. Maybe you can understand that sentiment but Vegas did pay $500 million for its franchise and McPhee was following the rules.
      It just looked so strange given the NHL’s past expansion history.
      “I was watching the expansion draft and some of the deals and the guys we were able to get,” said Knights’ defenceman Deryk Engelland. “I couldn’t have imagined them pulling that stuff off.”
      It speak volumes, in fact, that the Knights came to town Thursday for a meeting with the Canucks that had playoff implications in the Pacific Division. The Knights, who won eight of their first nine games, sat one point ahead of the Canucks, San Jose and Calgary and two ahead of Anaheim.
      If Fleury can bounce back from his concussion — or if Malcolm Subban or Oscar Dansk can supply NHL-calibre goaltending — they should be there or thereabouts in March.

    • Efter två Stanley Cupvinster i rad följer två säsonger där <a href="http://www.crtside.com/brandon-pirri-jersey-c-1_39.html">http://www.crtside.com/brandon-pirri-jersey-c-1_39.html</a> Detroit får nöja sig med att titta på då när två av deras största rivaler Dallas och New Jersey vinner var sin Stanley Cup.
      Deep in the Heart of Texas: Dallas Stars blev Stanley Cup mästare för första gången
      Texas var efter det är inte bara den ensamma stjärnan stat, det hade spelats hockey i Texas länge men från och med nu kunde de skryta med att ha vunnit The Holy Grail alias Stanley Cup, I april slutade dessutom NHL:s absolut största namn och stjärna Wayne Gretzky.
      Inför säsongen förändrade NHL både Conferencerna och divisionerna, de tidigare fyra divisiorna blev sex dvs tre i varje Conference. Toronto som tidigare spelat i den västra Conferencen flyttades till öst och Northeast Divison där även Boston, Buffalo, Montreal och Ottawa spelade. New Jersey, NY Islanders, NY Rangers, Philadelphia och Pittsburgh bildade Atlantic medan Carolina, Florida, Tampa Bay och Washington bildade Southeast Divison (Atlanta ansluter den kommande säsongen). I väst såg divisionerna ut så här: Central bestod av Chicago, Detroit, Nashville och St. Louis, Pacific bestod av Anaheim, Dallas, Los Angeles, Phoenix och San Jose medan Northwest innehöll Calgary, Colorado, Edmonton och Vancouver. Nashville gjorde med andra ord sin första säsong i NHL och Atlanta skulle debutera året efter medan Columbus och Minnesota fick vänta ytterligare en säsong. Samtidigt såg det ut som om slutet var nära för Oilers där ägaren Peter Pocklington var nära att sälja laget till investerare från Houston innan en grupp lokala affärsmän kom med ett bud och lyckades rädda kvar Oilers i Edmonton.
      En annan nyhet var att Montreal Canadiens donerade en pokal i Maurice ”Rocket” Richards namn som skulle gå till den i NHL som gjorde flest mål under säsongen. Under säsongen spelades dessutom den sista matchen i en Original Six arena eftersom Toronto lämnade Maple Leaf Gardens efter 68 säsonger. Olympia i Detroit stängdes 1979, Chicago Stadium 1995, Boston Garden 1995 och Forum 1996. Nu undrar ni säkert varför jag inte anser att Madison Square Garden är en Original Six arena, svaret är enkelt, Det MSG om Rangers spelade i under O6 epoken stängdes och revs redan 1968 då den nuvarande arean invigdes. NHL införde dessutom en regel för att minska antalet underkända mål, den övergavs efter en säsong och anledningen kan ni läsa om längre fram i texten.
      I juli signades de tre största namnen som var FA:s, Brett Hull gick till Dallas, Curtis Joseph gick till Toronto och Ron Francis skrev på för Carolina och återvände därmed till organisationen där han debuterade och fick smeknamnet ”The Franchise”. Craig Hartsburg blev Anaheims nye coach och Barry Trotz blev Nashvilles förste man i båset. I Vancouver fick både lagets GM Pat Quinn och coach Tom Renney gå efter den misslyckade säsongen året innan och ersättarna var inga andra än Brian Burke och Mike Keenan. Pat <a href="http://www.e666e.com/ron-greschner-jersey-c-1_26.html">http://www.e666e.com/ron-greschner-jersey-c-1_26.html</a> Quinn var inte arbetslös länge eftersom han blev Torontos nye coach.
      I säsongsstarten tangerade Scotty Bowman rekordet för flest säsonger som coach i NHL när han inledde sin 27:e säsong i båset, Dick Irvin som satte rekordet var coach i NHL från 1928 till 1956. Precis som förra säsongen inledde NHL säsongen med två matcher i japan, den här gången var det Calgary Flames och San Jose Sharks som möttes i två matcher. NHL började dessutom snegla på Europa igen genom att låta Buffalo Sabres och Tampa Bay Lightning genomföra träningsläger och en miniturnering (med två lag från Österrike) i Österrike som Tampa Bay vann.

      When the Golden Knights raced out to <a href="http://www.idesi9n.com/griffin-reinhart-c-1_26.html">http://www.idesi9n.com/griffin-reinhart-c-1_26.html</a> the best start by an expansion team in NHL history, they bought themselves a lot of leeway. Because of that 8-1-0 start, Vegas has remained in second place in the Pacific Division standings despite going 2-5-1 since.
      Tonight the slack in the rope runs out, as a loss in Vancouver could send the Golden Knights tumbling from second to fourth in the division, with the opportunity to fall as low as sixth before their next game.
      Vegas will start Maxime Lagace in goal. The rookie was pulled from Tuesday night’s 8-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers after giving up seven goals on 29 shots. Lagace has a save percentage of .931 at T-Mobile Arena this season, but only .849 on the road.
      Starting in goal for the Canucks is Jacob Markstrom, who has lost three of his last four starts and given up at least three goals in each of them.
      It will be strength against strength tonight, as the Golden Knights’ No. 4 ranked offense (3.5 goals per game) goes up against the Canucks’ No. 5 ranked defense (2.6 goals per game).
      Vegas should get an added offensive boost with Shea Theodore in the lineup in place of Jon Miller. Theodore has recorded only one assist in his three active games since being called up from the American Hockey League, but will likely <a href="http://www.mapleleafsprosale.com/felix-potvin-jersey-c-1_44.html">http://www.mapleleafsprosale.com/felix-potvin-jersey-c-1_44.html</a> play on the power play tonight and gives the Golden Knights an extra weapon on the blue line.

      AVON LAKE, OH — The city of Avon Lake is <a href="http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/erik-haula-c-1_35.html">http://www.goldenknightsproshops.com/erik-haula-c-1_35.html</a> sponsoring neighbor-versus-neighbor competition this year. Namely, residents will be asked to battle it out for the title of best holiday lights and decoration display in the city.
      Contemplating the competition, it's hard not to picture Clark Griswold (from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) turning his house into a low-watt sun with strings and strings (and strings and strings) of Christmas lights and plastic Santas and reindeer.
      Luckily, the Avon Lake contest should involve less structural damage to home and more festive community building.
      Here's how the competition will work.
      First, both residents and local businesses will be able to take part in the contest. Second, interested participants will need to register with the Parks and Recreation Department. Don't worry, it's free to register. Registration can be completed here.
      Then comes the fun part. Or the grueling labor, depending on how you look at it. But residents and business owners will need to construct a holiday display. Then take a picture of their work and submit it to the Avon Lake Parks and Recreation office by Dec. 10.
      Voting will take place from Dec. 11 to Dec. 15. Pictures of the various displays will be posted on Facebook and each "like" that a photo gets will be counted as one vote. The display with the most "likes" will be declared the winner. Winners will be announced during the Holiday Lights Tour on Dec. 15.
      To be considered for the contest, photos must include a name and address for participants. Photos will not be posted online until that information is provided. The longer a photo is posted online, the more time it has to accrue "likes."
      Voting will begin Dec. 11 and end at noon on Dec. 15.
      Photos can be submitted in one of three ways. First, submissions can be emailed to this address. nhaas@avonlake.org. Photos can also be <a href="http://www.groyse.com/jake-bischoff-c-1_8.html">http://www.groyse.com/jake-bischoff-c-1_8.html</a> mailed or dropped off at the Avon Lake Recreation Department, 150 Avon Belden Rd.
      Simplest of all, submission can be posted to the Avon Lake Parks and Rec Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ALParksandRec/
      Plus, the winning family will win more than bragging rights. The city said on its website there will be some kind of prize for the best decorative display.

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Travis Green looking anything but in early days with Canucks: Cox" Yesterday

      The bittersweet evolution of the Vancouver Canucks, 47 years in the making, has brought the hockey club to this very point, the <a href="http://www.eraneta.com/james-neal-c-1_10.html">http://www.eraneta.com/james-neal-c-1_10.html</a> point when the young boy from Castlegar, B.C., who used to cheer for Stan Smyl and Dave Babych and thrilled to the sight of Steve Bozek jogging down his hometown streets doing summer workouts is now in charge.
      Travis Green is that boy from Castlegar. Born the same year the Canucks were, he is many things. The junior hockey star who by his own reckoning didn’t understand what it meant to be a good player. The young pro who as a Coyote and a Maple Leaf learned that he really liked to win. The apprenticing coach who turned down a quick return to the five-star hotels and first-class travel of the NHL because he wanted to be a head coach, not an assistant.
      Now, as head coach of the Canucks, he is introducing a new sentiment to Vancouver hockey, a diverse, intense sporting culture that has never known a Stanley Cup championship, a culture that wanted a parade and got a riot instead.
      Green is now here to straighten all this out, to make it all make sense after all that has happened. He’s not Mike Babcock, arriving in Toronto with Cup rings and Olympic gold medals. He’s not a “winner,” at least not yet, but he sure seems to have a pretty good idea how to become one.
      The Canucks have been far more successful in the early part of this NHL season than anyone thought they’d be — fueled by encouraging signs from rookie Brock (Brocket) Boeser and shocking contributions from the likes of Derek Dorsett — and Green is the object of some fascination on the Lower Mainland.
      If you knew him as a player, particularly through the first few hundred of his 970 NHL games, you’d be forgiven if you’re surprised he’s in this position at all. Green just never seemed the type, but now he’s like the hippie of the sixties who grew up, got married, got a mortgage, and now looks back at his youthful indiscretions with some chagrin.
      “Looking back, I’m embarrassed about the player I was,” he says. “As I young guy, I didn’t know how to work, how to train. I just had a meeting with one of my players and I told him I scored 70 points in 69 games but I wasn’t a very good player. I was better player when I scored 10 goals.”
      “I know this. Travis Green the head coach would pull his hair out over Travis Green the 20-year-old. And Travis Green the 20-year-old might not like the 46-year-old version very much.”
      Green did score 25 goals one year with the Islanders, and repeated that as a Coyote. By the time he arrived in Toronto for the first of two stints as a Leaf, he was a grinding centre, often out there in the middle of trouble as part of a line with Darcy Tucker and Shayne Corson.
      After a brief stint in the Swiss league, he <a href="http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/tyler-wong-c-1_24.html">http://www.goldenknightsprosale.com/tyler-wong-c-1_24.html</a> was done as a player by 2008. He remembered the suggestion by one of his coaches in Toronto, Paul Maurice, that he might make a good coach. By 2012, he was behind the bench of the WHL Portland Winterhawks in place of the suspended Mike Johnston, and guided the team to the Memorial Cup championship game.
      “Mike taught me the art of coaching,” he says. “Preparation, running a practice, speaking to a team, putting a video session together, I learned all that from Mike.”
      Then came four years in Utica, Vancouver’s farm club, which included turning down offers to go back to the NHL as an assistant. Last summer, after firing Willie Desjardins, the Canucks decided to give the job to the boy from Castlegar.
      Green believed the Canucks needed to play faster, develop more depth and internal competition, and create more offence. To do that, he knew he needed to have a conversation with the Sedin twins. Specifically, Green needed to convince Daniel and Henrik to accept less ice time.
      “I have always coached by being honest, putting your cards on the table,” he says. “I remember being nervous when it came time to talk to them. You do wonder how it’s going to be.

      How's this for a final four: Wayne <a href="http://www.crtside.com/jeff-beukeboom-jersey-c-1_4.html">http://www.crtside.com/jeff-beukeboom-jersey-c-1_4.html</a> Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Bobby Orr and Teemu Selanne.
      After four weeks of fan voting in the Greatest NHL Moments Presented by Coors Light and Pepsi Zero Sugar, the four Hockey Hall of Famers are the last ones standing entering the semifinal round.
      The matchups are intriguing, with Gretzky scoring his 50th goal in his 39th game on Dec. 30, 1981, against Lemieux scoring five goals in five different ways on Dec. 31, 1988. The other semifinal has Bobby Orr's iconic overtime goal that won the Stanley Cup in 1970 against Teemu Selanne breaking the rookie goal-scoring mark with a hat trick on March 2, 1993, on his way to a 76-goal season.
      The original bracket of 64 moments was determined by a blue-ribbon panel consisting of broadcasters from NHL national rightsholders NBC Sports Group, NHL Network, Sportsnet and TVA Sports.
      Lemieux's moment defeated the Stastny brothers each scoring eight points in a game in the first round, Gretzky scoring his NHL-record 802nd goal in the second round, the New York Islanders winning their fourth straight Stanley Cup championship in the third round and Darryl Sittler's 10-point game in the fourth round.
      Gretzky's road to the semifinal saw his moment defeat Martin St. Louis' goal in Game 6 of the 2004 Stanley Cup Final in the first round, Lemieux's spectacular goal in the 1991 Stanley Cup Final in the second round, Gretzky himself becoming the fastest player to 1,000 points in the third round and Orr becoming the first defenseman to score 100 points in a season (1969-70) in the fourth round.
      Selanne, who was inducted into Hockey Hall of Fame on Monday, took out some big names along the way to the round of four. His moment defeated Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin each scoring a hat trick in the same playoff game in 2009 in the first round, the Philadelphia Flyers' 35-game unbeaten streak in the second round, Ron Hextall becoming the first goalie to score a goal by shooting the puck into the net in the third round and Martin Brodeur becoming the all-time leader in wins by a goaltender in the fourth round.
      Orr defeated Mud Bruneteau's winning goal in the sixth overtime of a 1936 playoff game in the first round, Steve Yzerman's double-overtime <a href="http://www.e666e.com/ron-greschner-jersey-c-1_26.html">http://www.e666e.com/ron-greschner-jersey-c-1_26.html</a> goal in Game 7 of the 1996 Western Conference Final, Joe Sakic handing the Stanley Cup to Ray Bourque after the Colorado Avalanche's Game 7 victory in 2001 in the third round and Gordie Howe becoming the first NHL player to 1,000 points in the fourth round.
      To vote on the semifinal matchups, fans can visit NHL.com/GreatestMoments. They can also join the conversation using the hashtag #NHLGreatestMoments. The fans' choice for the Greatest NHL Moment will be announced during the 2017 Scotiabank NHL100 Classic between the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators at Lansdowne Park in Ottawa on Dec. 16.

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Les Oilers ne font qu’une bouchée des Golden Knights" 11.16.2017

      En visite à Edmonton pour la première fois de leur jeune histoire, mardi soir, les <a href="http://www.babewest.com/frederik-andersen-jersey-c-1_25.html">http://www.babewest.com/frederik-andersen-jersey-c-1_25.html</a> Golden Knights ont joué comme... une équipe d'expansion et se sont inclinés 8-2 face aux Oilers.
      Un texte de Patrick Henri
      Sur papier, le duel semblait inégal. La deuxième attaque de l'Association de l’Ouest contre la pire attaque du circuit.
      Avant la rencontre, les Golden Knights avaient marqué 57 buts en 16 rencontres, les Oilers n’en avaient inscrit que 38, tout en ayant joué un match de plus.
      Les joueurs orange ont marqué trois fois en première période et n’ont jamais été inquiétés.
      L’histoire du match
      Après 6:28, Oscar Klefbom a marqué son deuxième filet de la saison, quand il a complété un jeu orchestré par Jujhar Khaira, au moment où Yohann Auvitu était au banc des punitions. Il s'agissait d'un premier but en infériorité numérique pour les Oilers cette saison.
      Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, en avantage numérique, et Patrick Maroon, ont marqué alors qu’il restait moins de trois minutes à la période pour donner une confortable avance de 3-0 aux Oilers.
      À 10:19 de la deuxième période, Matt Benning a fait dévier un tir d'Oscar Klefbom pour porter à quatre buts l’avance des locaux.
      Pierre-Édouard Bellemare, avec son troisième but de la saison, a redonné un peu d’espoir aux Golden Knights avant la fin de la période.
      L’avantage numérique des Oilers est à l’origine d’un deuxième but alors qu’après seulement 57 secondes de jeu en troisième, le défenseur Deryk Engelland des Knights a frappé au vol une rondelle dans la mauvaise direction, le but a été accordé à Connor McDavid.
      James Neal a répliqué avec son 10e <a href="http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/connor-murphy-jersey-c-1_36.html">http://www.blackhawksnhlproshop.com/connor-murphy-jersey-c-1_36.html</a> but de la saison, mais Connor McDavid, avec son deuxième du match, a redonné une priorité de quatre buts aux siens.
      Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, grâce à son deuxième but de la rencontre, et Mark Letestu ont complété le pointage.

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Rbdf Audit ‘Questions Still To Ask’" 11.16.2017

      FORMER Assistant Commissioner Paul <a href="http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_22.html">http://www.authenticgoldenknightsstore.com/brayden-mcnabb-c-1_22.html</a> Thompson yesterday raised concerns over the findings of an audit conducted into the Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF), telling The Tribune he felt assurances offered by National Security Minister Marvin Dames were “premature”.
      #Mr Thompson insisted concerns raised by Auditor General Terrence Bastian over weapons procurement were legitimate and could not be brushed off until a full audit of inventory is conducted and cross referenced with illegal guns found in the country.
      #Mr Bastian’s audit report covers the period July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2015, and found that a 2014 procurement exercise posed a threat to the safety and security of Bahamian borders by awarding a $1.3m contract to a home-based company that did not have the necessary approvals to import weapons from the commissioner of police.
      #The audit, tabled in the House of Assembly last week, also noted the “online purchasing/courier service” had been inactive for more than four years before it renewed its business licence just four months before receiving Cabinet approval on its bid; and the Customs Department could not locate two shipment entries in December 2014, and June 2015.
      #In response to the report, Mr Dames told The Tribune he was not concerned about the procurement exercise as there were multiple layers of scrutiny surrounding weapons shipment. He said he was convinced there was no cause for alarm over the report after speaking with Commodore Tellis Bethel and Ministry of National Security Permanent Secretary Carl Smith. Mr Dames stressed despite the reported missing customs entries - there were no missing weapons.
      #While there were no concerns over the integrity of the 2014 procurement process, Mr Dames said he has ordered a full review of all companies currently engaged with his ministry to ensure full compliance will all laws and policies.
      #Yesterday, Mr Thompson said he found both the report’s findings and Mr Dames’ response “bothersome”.
      #“The police are responsible for the licencing of firearms dealers and I cannot imagine why the police were not involved in this person and why the name or business is being kept so secret, I don’t see why that is,” the former police officer said.
      #“How the person got a licence to deal with firearms without the knowledge of the police, I can’t understand.”
      #Mr Thompson continued: “I’m also a bit set back, with all due respect to him, that the minister would try to make it seem that everything is all right. I don’t think everything is alright, we need to check to see if everything is all right.
      #“First, we should determine how the dealer <a href="http://www.authenticnhlrangersshop.com/james-patrick-jersey-c-1_37.html">http://www.authenticnhlrangersshop.com/james-patrick-jersey-c-1_37.html</a> got the licence without due diligence from police. The next thing is what weapons, the entire list of weapons the company imported from suppliers overseas, we should identify those suppliers and check with them to find out what weapons they supplied since [company] has been nominated as the dealer for the country.
      #“When we have done that, we should compare it with the inventory of weapons in possession of defence force and if there are weapons missing we could find out. The dealer can tell us what was sent here, if the RBDF don’t have it then they were sent elsewhere. We should also see if the weapons on the streets being brought in, whether they match.
      #“When we do that investigation,” Mr Thompson said, “we can then satisfy ourselves that there is nothing to worry about.”

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Rating the five best and five worst offensive lines in the NFL" 11.16.2017

      They seldom make the highlight packages. If <a href="http://www.dantecubed.com/jason-witten-jersey-c-2_44.html">http://www.dantecubed.com/jason-witten-jersey-c-2_44.html</a> you hear their name during a game, it’s usually because they’ve done something wrong. Yet they are the often overlooked element when it comes to the success or failure of NFL teams.
      They are the offensive linemen, and although they're always essential, it's this time of the season when they can really create separation. As the weather turns colder, wetter and windier, teams frequently run the ball more, relying on their big men up front to set the tone and push open holes.
      It's tricky to judge the effectiveness of an offensive line based solely on simple statistics such as sacks, yards per carry, rushing touchdowns and the like. There are so many factors and complexities — among them: What was the quarterback's role in that sack? Did a back miss his block? Who's carrying the ball? How good is the opposing defense at stopping the run? Several websites do a good job of drilling down on the stats, looking deeper into the numbers to assign a pecking order to the league's 32 offensive lines, but it's a nuanced science.
      “In the end, the film is the most important thing,” said former NFL offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz, whose brother, Mitchell, plays right tackle for Kansas City. “You can use stats to confirm what you see on film, but it starts with the film.”
      For the purposes of ranking the NFL's top five and bottom five offensive lines heading into the second half of the regular season, I turned to a trio of experts: Schwartz and offensive line consultant Duke Manyweather, who co-host the "Block Em' Up" podcast; and Hall of Fame tackle Jackie Slater, who played his entire 20-year career with the Rams and now coaches offensive line at Azusa Pacific.
      "It's hard to assess offensive lines," Manyweather said. "There are people who get it and people who don't. A lot of people may not want to admit this, but even teams get it wrong a lot."
      Now, a look at the five lines playing the best as of Week 10:
      1. Philadelphia — When nine-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters went down with a season-ending knee injury last month, some observers saw it as the beginning of the end for the Eagles. That did not come to pass. At 8-1, Philadelphia has the best record in the league, and the cohesiveness of the offensive line has a lot to do with that. Slater’s stance: “You can’t overlook the play-calling and the decision-making of a talented young quarterback in Carson Wentz.”
      2. New Orleans — The Saints have surrendered a league-low eight sacks, which is particularly impressive considering how much Drew Brees throws the ball. The left side of the line is particularly strong with Terron Armstead at tackle and Andrus Peat at guard, and rookie Ryan Ramczyk has found a home at right tackle. Slater’s stance: “Getting Armstead back was huge, and Brees is such a quick trigger man that it always helps the line.”
      3. Dallas — The Cowboys have been the <a href="http://www.officialcowboysprosale.com/james-hanna-jersey-c-1_59.html">http://www.officialcowboysprosale.com/james-hanna-jersey-c-1_59.html</a> gold standard in terms of offensive line play the past few seasons, and they’re seeing a lot of eight-man boxes with defenses selling out to stop Ezekiel Elliott. With that back now suspended for six games, we’ll get a better idea of how much of that running game is him, and how much is the line. Slater’s stance: “Every bit of success Jerry Jones has had as an owner is partly due to his investment in his offensive line.”
      4. Rams — In one year, the Rams have gone from having the NFL’s worst line to one of its best. The addition of left tackle Andrew Whitworth was huge — Manyweather calls him the team’s most valuable offensive player so far — and getting center John Sullivan was big too. But the whole line is rolling, and Jared Goff and Todd Gurley are surely grateful. Slater’s stance: “The stability in this unit, including putting young lineman Rob Havenstein back at right tackle, has been critical.”

    • SB Nation recently asked its NFL blogs to <a href="http://www.aescranna.com/kevin-pierrelouis-jersey-c-1_29.html">http://www.aescranna.com/kevin-pierrelouis-jersey-c-1_29.html</a> name its best “under-the-radar” defender. Of course under-the-radar means different things to different people. So we took it as a player having a really good year, but isn’t named DeMarcus Lawrence, Sean Lee, or David Irving. For various reason, those players are either known to the NFL public, or there is nothing about their game that is under-the-radar.
      Four of BTB’s writers thought that Jourdan Lewis was the best candidate for the criteria. The third-round pick out of Michigan has been thrust into essentially a starting cornerback role. And he has thrived. Lewis is a rookie who is a little on the small size so it was thought he might be a “slot corner” only. That turned out to be wrong. He has great instincts as a corner and is a nice open-field tackler. He can match up with the biggest and speediest receivers like Julio Jones.
      Lewis wasn’t the only candidate our writers brought up.
      Maliek Collins - He hasn’t had the sack totals many thought he might have, but he has been disruptive in the backfield and since David Irving has returned, he appears to be turning it up a notch.
      Tyrone Crawford - He’s been having a solid season, benefiting from Lawrence’s and Irving’s presence. He was falling out of favor with the <a href="http://www.js-lanhui.com/demetri-goodson-jersey-c-1_41.html">http://www.js-lanhui.com/demetri-goodson-jersey-c-1_41.html</a> Cowboys fans because of his large contract and lack of production, but this season has been different.

    • Angel92 has written a new blog article "Brent Celek Nominated for Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award" 11.16.2017

      Brent Celek doesn't complain.
      The 32-year-old tight end and longest-tenured <a href="http://www.authenticsteelerssales.com/jerome-bettis-jersey-c-1_34.html">http://www.authenticsteelerssales.com/jerome-bettis-jersey-c-1_34.html</a> member of the Eagles used to put up numbers. He used to be a receiving tight end and nearly had a 1,000-yard season back in 2009.
      But as Celek has aged and after Zach Ertz was brought in, his role has changed greatly. He has become a backup and a blocker. And his attitude hasn't changed one bit.
      That's exactly why he has been named the Eagles' nominee for the 2017 Art Rooney Sportsmanship Award. All 32 teams nominate a player. The award, which recognizes players who "exemplify outstanding sportsmanship on the field," will be handed out on Feb. 3.
      "He's a team player, ultimate Philly guy," tight ends coach Justin Peelle said last week. "Brent's the best. Ever since Zach got here, he's welcomed him with open arms, he's taken him under his wing and has shown him little things here and there. It's never been a competition. Brent's whole thing is he just wants to win. Brent understands that it takes all 53 guys to win. Brent has been a really good role model for Zach and Trey so that's just who Brent it. He's the ultimate team guy and that's what you love on him."
      This is the fourth year for the award, named after the late owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. Frank Gore (2016), Charles Woodson (2015) and Larry Fitzgerald (2014) have won before. The Eagles nominated Darren Sproles last season.
      Coming into the Denver game, Celek had just four catches for 33 yards on the season. Against the Broncos, with Ertz out, Celek caught three passes for 39 yards.
      After the game, Celek admitted it felt "great" to be involved in the passing game, even if it was just for one week (see story).
      Celek still has some ability as a pass-catcher, as he proved against Denver, but he's not going to take opportunities away from Ertz, who has been the most productive receiving tight end in the NFL this season.
      And Celek probably won't take away many opportunities from Trey Burton, who has also proven to be a viable option in the passing game.
      But Celek doesn't complain and his attitude <a href="http://www.divasta.com/jon-ryan-jersey-c-1_39.html">http://www.divasta.com/jon-ryan-jersey-c-1_39.html</a> has rubbed off on all of the tight ends.
      "I think that whole room has that mindset of it's all about the team," Peelle said. "There's no individual. Whatever the tight ends can do to help the team win, that's what they're going to do. They all buy into that and they all believe that. That's the great thing about coaching those guys."

      Bryant (knee/ankle) and Jones (sore ankle) missed practices on Wednesday and Thursday before returning on Friday.
      Jones was not included on Atlanta's final injury report, while Bryant was listed as questionable.

      Rams linebacker Robert Quinn is sitting out for the first time this season after missing the past week of practice with an unspecified illness. Matt Longacre will start against Houston in place of Quinn, who has 2½ sacks.
      San Francisco left tackle Joe Staley is back two weeks after breaking his orbital bone. Staley got hurt in Philadelphia on Oct. 29 and was expected to miss at least two games, but is back early to give a needed boost the Niners struggling <a href="http://www.officialsteelersprosale.com/green-cortez-allen-youth-jersey-nfl-nike-pittsburgh-steelers-28-limited-salute-to-service-jerseys-wholesale-p-97.html">http://www.officialsteelersprosale.com/green-cortez-allen-youth-jersey-nfl-nike-pittsburgh-steelers-28-limited-salute-to-service-jerseys-wholesale-p-97.html</a> offensive line against the New York Giants.

      The Free Lance-Star reports the Richmond County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously last Thursday to not allow any type of oil and gas drilling. The board's chairman, F. Lee Sanders, said the county's water supply was the primary impetus for the ban.
      The county is bordered by the Rappahannock River, which advocacy group American Rivers ranked as the fifth-most endangered American river, citing fracking's threat to clean drinking water. A small portion of Richmond County is in the Taylorsville basin, where more than 84,000 acres (34,000 hectares) have been <a href="http://www.aescranna.com/rees-odhiambo-jersey-c-1_43.html">http://www.aescranna.com/rees-odhiambo-jersey-c-1_43.html</a> leased for possible drilling.

      Butch Jones is out as coach of the <a href="http://www.officialsteelersprosale.com/brett-keisel-jerseys-c-1_95.html">http://www.officialsteelersprosale.com/brett-keisel-jerseys-c-1_95.html</a> University of Tennessee football team. However, his image remains on the back of the 4,580-square foot Mitsubishi video board facing Neyland Drive.
      There are three images on the back of the video board along with names of three sponsors. Jones, who was fired Sunday after almost five seasons as coach, is on the left with former coach Gen. Robert Neyland in the center, and former defensive end Reggie White on the right.
      The images on the video board were switched on Oct. 2, 2014.
      Previously the three images were, left to right, former quarterback Condredge Holloway, Neyland again in the center, and former coach Phillip Fulmer holding the national championship trophy won by the Vols in 1998.
      When the new video board was installed in time for the 2009 season, the images, left to right, were a non-discrete player, a different image of Neyland, and players putting their hands on the "I will give my all for Tennessee today" sign.
      So who should replace Jones when UT <a href="http://www.authenticsteelerssales.com/landry-jones-jersey-c-1_28.html">http://www.authenticsteelerssales.com/landry-jones-jersey-c-1_28.html</a> decides to make a switch? The Vols have a home game Saturday night against LSU on ESPN.
      Former UT coach Lane Kiffin endorsed putting Fulmer's image back on the video board.
