ABBOTSFORD, B. Torrey Smith Jersey .C. —Youve got to be
good to be lucky and the Texas Stars were both Friday night. While the Stars
attributed fortuitous bounces to their 3-1 win in Abbotsford, the Heat head
coach Troy Ward said his team had no answer for an opponent on a roll.
“Sometimes youve got to give credit where credit is due,” said Heat head coach
Troy Ward. “They had momentum the whole night. Their goalie saw the puck well.
They played solid. Theyre a good team. We only beat them 1-0 in overtime down
there. We expected what we got tonight. They were just the better team.” The
Dallas Stars American Hockey League affiliate is unbeaten in five games and
7-1-1 in the last nine—and they caught the Heat in a bad spot. Abbotsford had
returned from a road trip and were playing after having three days off. “(In
that situation), youre losing 80 per cent of the time and we fell into that,”
said Ward. “We were slow mentally. We were on our heels.” While the Heat are
struggling to hang on to first in the Western Conference with just one win in
six games, the Stars have moved into fifth and are just three points out of the
South Division lead. “Were getting good bounces,” said Stars defenceman Jordie
Benn. “The hockey gods are with us right now.” The Heat had not lost in
regulation on home ice in October or November but have already dropped three at
the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre this month. They seem to have a
bulls eye on their back. “Theyre a top team and we want to prove we can play
with them,” said Dallas Cody Eakin. “Any points are huge right now as we get
ready for the second half of the season. Were on a pretty good track right now.”
Eakin and Reilly Smith each had a goal and an assist, while Taylor Vause also
scored for the Stars (13-8-3). With the score 2-1 in the third, Eakin scored the
goal that proved to be a dagger. “The nail in the coffin was the third one,”
said Ward. “I thought If it stays 2-1 for a while itll be OK but it didnt. That
was the real kicker.” Cristopher Nilstorp stopped 20 shots for Texas, picking up
his ninth win of the season. “Hes been playing great for a while now and thats
what we need,” said Benn. “Hes a big part of why were winning.” Brady Lamb had
the lone goal for Abbotsford (14-4-6), while Danny Taylor made 23 saves in net.
The Stars opened the scoring at the five-minute mark, taking advantage of an
untimely penalty by Abbotsfords Zack McKelvie. After Toby Petersen was stopped
on a partial breakaway McKelvie engaged in a scrum and came out with an extra
two minutes for roughing. Just 25 seconds in Smith converted Eakins rebound,
with Tomas Vincour picking up a helper as well. The Heat were being outshot 13-0
at one point in the second period but tied the game at 12:52. T.J. Brodie took
the puck down low and centred for Ben Walter. Though Nilstorp kicked out his
one-timer attempt the puck made its way to the point where Lamb teed up a
slapshot top corner for his first professional goal. The Stars regained the lead
at 16:21. Mike Hedden took the puck to the net and though Taylor stuffed his
shot, Vause raced in to lift the puck over the goalies blocker. Vause just
signed his second consecutive tryout contract with the Stars on Wednesday, going
goalless in his first nine games. Texas doubled their lead at 18:20. Alex
Chiasson wheeled his way to the high slot and backhanded a shot on net that was
deflected in by Eakin. Texas then killed off back-to-back power plays late in
the third period to seal the victory. Matt Birk Jersey . MacDougall began the day
by edging Quebecs Mike Fournier 8-7, and followed that by pounding Ontarios Cory
Heggestad 11-4. The Nova Scotia rink is tied with Quebec for first place at 7-2,
and holds the all-important tiebreaker. Maake Kemoeatu Jersey . Middleweight Karlos
Vemola has dropped out of his bout against Chris (The Crippler) Leben after
fracturing a cheekbone in training. http://www.theravenssuperbowlgear.com/ed-reed-jersey/
. According to TVA Sports, Cammalleri is on the verge of an agreement with
Geneve-Servette HC in Switzerland. With the NHL lockout reaching the 95th day on
Wednesday and no resolution in sight, Cammalleri would join Tyler Seguin,
Jason Spezza, Patrice Bergeron, John Tavares, Matt Duchene and Brooks Laich in
the Swiss League. Ray Rice Elite Jersey . The surgery was
performed to remove an impairment that has caused swelling since the spring.
Harrison, a five-time Pro Bowl selection, has yet to practice this summer and is
on the physically unable to perform list. Joe Flacco Elite Jersey . Oh, and give the
winner a check for $195,000. South Koreans Jiyai Shin, Kim, So Yeon Ryu and Hee
Kyung Seo dominated the leaderboard, sharing the top spot at 11-under 202 on
Saturday through the third round.There is risk of the entire 2012-2013 NHL
season being wiped out. Now that qualifies as fear mongering, but considering
how entrenched both the league and the players association are with less than 10
days until the expiration of the existing collective bargaining agreement,
sources on both sides are accepting the loss of another season as a possibility.
Negotiations remain in a stalemate – with no plan to resume formal talks. The
NHL insists – for the health of the league – that players must be paid less. On
the other side, the players association contends that forcing players to take
less doesnt solve the problems within the current system. In short, the NHL
Players Association believes a new system is required. However, negotiating an
economic framework that works for both the owners and the players cant be done
until both sides find some common ground. A mutually agreed upon definition of
what constitutes hockey related revenue (HRR) and how certain aspects impact the
overall players sshare is largely the foundation for a new CBA. Brendon Ayanbadejo Jersey. So in simple
terms, it comes down to dollars and cents. The players are willing to give, but
do so over time. And they arent interested in any ownership proposal that
continues to push for an immediate correction. A 50-50 split seems fair, but
negotiating to get there will be a painstaking process. Player contracts are
also a huge concern for the NHL, with issues ranging from the diving salaries
used to construct the mega-deals into cap reasonable numbers to entry-level
contracts which the league would like to extend from three to five years.
Revenue sharing, arbitration, health and safety initiatives or negotiated
changes to supplemental discipline are also all important elements in bargaining
and chips that can be shuffled once a new economic framework is devised. With no
discussions planned, thats a tall order. And that leaves the fear mongers who
once again project hockeys version of Armageddon on solid ground. ’ ’ ’
