OTTAWA —The Ottawa Senators have signed goaltender Nathan Lawson to a
one-year, two-way contract, the club announced Monday. Jeff Saturday Jersey . Lawson spent the
2011-12 season with the Hamilton Bulldogs, the American Hockey League affiliate
of the Montreal Canadiens. He had a 19-17-4 record, a 2.57 goals-against
average, a .914 save percentage and five shutouts. The six-foot-two, 190-pound
Calgary native has played in four professional seasons, including 10 NHL games
with the New York Islanders. Undrafted, he played three seasons with the
University of Alaska-Anchorage Seawolves before being signed by the Islanders.
Lawson will provide goaltending depth to an Ottawa team already boasting

Flames, told NHL. Clay Matthews Blue Jersey . Ramirez hit his

Circuit ICAR.WINNIPEG—One team is looking to catch a wave while the other is
looking to get its head above water as the Hamilton Tiger-Cats visit the
Winnipeg Blue Bombers tonight. Watch live coverage on TSN right now. The 1-5
Bombers are looking to new quarterback Joey Elliott to secure just their second
win of the season. “The message has been sent, we have to pick it up,” said
veteran Winnipeg offensive lineman Glenn January. “Whenever youre 1-5, peoples
jobs are on the line. We understand that we need to get some production and I
think at the professional level you need no more incentive than that.” The
veterans on the team get it, he suggests. “Some of the young guys are starting
to figure it out.” The Hamilton Tiger-Cats, meanwhile, are looking to break out
of the 3-3 logjam that is the rest of the CFL East, even though theyre leading
the pack thanks to wins over both Toronto and Montreal. “Lets be that team that
makes a jump and jumps out and gets four wins first,” said Hamilton quarterback
Henry Burris. “If we want to be that team, weve got to take the momentum right
now and make it happen and put pressure on those other two teams.” Elliott, who
took over after the Bombers bye week from backup Alex Brink, says hes not scared
of failure, because thats a sure way to lose. “My job is to prepare, prepare,
prepare, then when its game day Im just going to go out and have fun,” he said.
This is his third year with the Bombers and it will be only his third start.
Brink got the hook after going 1-2 in his three starts after taking over from an
injured Buck Pierce. The Bombers are desperate for another win, but coach Paul
LaPolice says hes a little frustrated at talk his job is on the line with a
dozen games still left to play. “We are certainly not happy the way were
playing, we need to get better and I think we will,” says the coach. “Im
concerned about winning a football game. I think sometimes people doom and gloom
very much, and things out of my control are out of my control. Weve got a lot of
football left to be played.” This is the first regular season game between the
two East Division rivals. Hamilton is coming off a 31-20 loss to Calgary last
weeek. James Jones Camo Jersey. Winnipeg is the only
East Division rival Hamilton hasnt defeated this season which, despite the
statistical tie with Toronto and Montreal, puts the Ticats at the top. But head
coach George Cortez says that 3-3 record says a lot about the way the team has
performed. “Weve played well at times and not all that well at other times, been
inconsistent,” he said. He also said it would be dangerous to put too much
emphasis on the Bombers 1-5 record. “Im sure a lot of people that played the
B.C. Lions last year when they were 1-6 looked at their record and not at the
team, and thats where the danger comes.” If the Bombers have had problems at
quarterback, Hamilton has been getting solid performance from former Stampeder
Burris, who has a league-leading 16 touchdowns so far. But quarterback isnt the
only weak link Winnipeg must mend, and the team has been looking for leadership
from key players to help turn things around. Defensive back Jovon Johnson, last
seasons outstanding defensive player in the CFL, is doing his best to make sure
the message is heard. “We had our defensive meeting today and I told the guys,
Im going to stand up and start telling people how it is, whether they like it or
not,” he said. In seasons past when the Bomber offence was weak, the defence
often took up the slack, but this season there seem to be more holes in
Winnipegs game than there are corks to plug them. It helps that a team hit hard
by early season injuries is finally starting to look a little healthier. Johnson
is happy to see defensive back Alex Suber and free safety Ian Logan back on
defence. If the Bombers have a trump card in this game it may he tailback Chad
Simpson, since the Ticats have had trouble containing the running game. Cortez
was the quarterbacks coach with the Buffalo Bills of the NFL prior to joining
the Ticats this season and Simpson spent a few months with the team in 2010.
“Good running backs have given pretty much everybody a lot of trouble this
year,” said Cortez. “I know Chad, Chad was first at the Bills when I was at the
Bills, Chads a good running back.” As for containing Simpson? “Well, I hope to
tackle him when he has the ball.” ’ ’ ’
