The Rochester Knighthawks re-signed veteran forward Mike Accursi to a one-year
deal on Monday. Jason Witten Jerseys . Accursi remains with
the Knighthawks after helping Rochester win the 2012 Champions Cup. “Its great
being the defending champs,” said Accursi. “Our roster is pretty much intact and
youre adding better and bigger pieces. It looks like its going to be another
exciting season.” The 2012 season was Accursis 15th in the NLL, which he capped
off with his second title with the Knighthawks. His 66 points was his third
highest regular season total of his career, and his most since the 2007
championship season. In the playoffs, he provided five goals and four assists.
Accursi has established himself as one of the most clutch playoff performers in
NLL history, collecting 93 points in 22 games. In his career, Accursi has played
in 220 regular season games, which is the fifth most all-time in league history.
His 368 goals are eighth on the all-time list, and last season he eclipsed the
400-assist and 1,000-point plateau. After spending his summer coaching youth
lacrosse in St. Catharines, Ontario and Six Nations, the 37-year-old forward is
“itching to get back on the floor” with the Knighthawks. ”I am eager to get back
out there and get the Knighthawks jersey on again, and make a run for another
Championship,” said Accursi. “That was the reason I came to Rochester. I liked
the direction they were going. All I want to play for now is Champions Cups.” Jason Witten

the capital city Pretoria in the early hours of Sunday morning. Morris Claiborne Jersey . Rossi tore his
anterior cruciate ligament during a game against Real Madrid on Oct. 26, had
surgery and tore his ACL again during training on Jan. GLENDALE, Ariz. —The
Phoenix Coyotes will be without defenceman Rostislav Klesla as they try to close
out their Western Conference playoff semifinal series against the Nashville
Predators. On Sunday, Klesla was suspended for one game by the NHL for boarding
Nashville forward Matt Halischuk in Phoenixs 1-0 victory in Game 4. With or
without Klesla, the Coyotes have the Predators backed in a corner. They are up
3-1 in their best-of-seven series and can advance to a conference finals matchup
with Los Angeles with a victory over the Predators on Monday night. The Kings
completed a four-game sweep of St. Louis on Sunday. But the Coyotes are mixing
confidence with caution. They had a chance to close out their first-round series
against the Chicago Blackhawks at home but lost in overtime in Game 5. Phoenix
went on to a dominating 4-0 triumph on the road in Game 6. “Were aware its not
going to come easy,” said Phoenix centre Antoine Vermette, who played in the
Stanley Cup finals for Ottawa in 2007. “Weve been there just a couple of weeks
ago. Theyre going to play desperate. Thats what we saw with Chicago. Youve got
to come hard. Theyre not going to give it to you. Klesla received a minor
penalty for boarding in the Friday night incident but after the NHL reviewed, a
more serious punishment was thought to be in order. The league said Halischuk
was in a defenceless position when he was hit by Klesla as the two players went
after the loose puck. Brendan Shanahan, NHL senior vice-president for player
safety and hockey operations, explained the decision in a video. “While we would
not always classify a player who knows he is in race for a puck as defenceless,”
Shanahan said, “on this hit, Halischuk becomes unable to defend himself when
Klesla grabs his jersey and tugs him backward (before shoving him into the
boards).” Shanahan said the league had taken into account that Halischuk was not
seriously injured and came back into the game. The league said that while Klesla
had been suspended once before in his NHL career, it was five years ago for a
different type of offence, clipping. After practice Sunday, Phoenix coach Dave
Tippett said he thought the hit did not warrant a suspension but “obviously”
other were players were available if the NHL ruled otherwise. The Predators went
through an intense one-hour practice in Nashville on Sunday before flying to
Arizona. “Theres nowhere too hide. DeMarcus Ware Jersey. . It is what it is,”
Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. “I think during the series weve played well
but not well enough to be up 3-1. We havent buried our chances when weve had
lots of chances. We put ourselves in this position, and weve got to dig
ourselves out.” After a two-game absence, forwards Alexander Radulov and
Andrei Kostitsyn are expected to be back for Game 5. They were suspended for
Game 3 for violating team rules, then were scratched from Game 4 because Trotz
didnt want to mess with a lineup that played so well in Nashvilles 2-0 Game 3
victory. The players offence was sorely missed in Nashvilles critical loss
Friday night in Game 4. It was the second shutout of the playoffs for Phoenix
goalie Mike Smith. “Were getting opportunities and just not burying them
sometimes,” Predators forward Mike Fisher said. “We need guys to step up and get
the job done and thats the trick were going to need. Just have a solid game.”
Teams have come back from 3-1 deficits in the playoffs, just not very often. “I
feel everybody knows if you take this game its a new series,” Nashville goalie
Pekka Renne said. “We have a chance to come back after that and obviously dont
want to go too far ahead. Thats just the situation were in. “You have to stick
with your teammates, stay close to each other and believe in that foundation
weve been kind of leaning toward the whole season. I think thats our backbone
and we have a pretty resilient team.” Game 3 featured a number of pileups in
front of the Phoenix net, with the Predators slamming into Smith. In one case,
the puck crossed the line but the goal was waved off by the referee behind the
net, saying the whistle had blown. The call was upheld after a video review, Its
a tactic thats worn thin on Coyotes centre and team captain Shane Doan. “Its
something wed like to stop,” he said. “I mean, you notice that they do it every
single time. Its something that Smittys good at battling through but weve got to
stop it.” So how do you stop it? “Youd hope the refs will see it,” Doan said.
“Its usually (Patric) Hornqvist thats kind of doing it, trying to throw shots at
Smitty all the time. You hope that from game to game its able to be seen. But at
the same time weve got to do it more to theirs (Renne). If its going to not be
called, you have to do it to theirs.” ’ ’ ’
