ntil the London cycle it was really a dream but that turned everything around. It was something that could hap Antworten

OTTAWA, Ontario -- For a team playing its third game in four nights, the Minnesota Wild looked plenty fresh on Sunday night -- even in overtime.Matt Dumba scored late in the extra session and Darcy Kuemper stopped 35 shots, helping Minnesota beat the Ottawa Senators 2-1.The Wild were coming off a 3-2 loss to Philadelphia on Saturday after beating Pittsburgh on Thursday.Its not the end of the world to play back-to-backs, and I thought we held on and did a good job, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said.Ryan Suter scored a short-handed goal in the first period and Kuemper helped the Wild kill off three early power plays.Were not a team that wants to get behind 3-0, so getting those three kills and getting out of the first period with a lead was really important for us Id say, Boudreau said.Craig Anderson made 40 saves and was again solid for the Senators, who got a goal from Kyle Turris 5:06 into the third period. Ottawa has 11 goals over its last eight games and are 1 for 24 on the power play.I love the way were playing, were giving ourselves a chance to win by being there at the end, Anderson said. The positive out of not scoring right now is that even though guys might be showing some frustration, theyre still doing their jobs on the defensive side of the puck which is allowing us to get points and give ourselves an opportunity to be in each game.Despite their hectic schedule of late, the Wild controlled much of the action with Ottawa looking disorganized for most of the night.We had all kinds of scoring chances, but we just cant find the back of the net, Senators coach Guy Boucher said. Its a matter of creating the same chances and then having some go in and youre able to relax and not grip the stick so tight.Turris finally got Ottawa on the board when he beat Kuemper far stick-side with a wrist shot.Bouchers decision to dress seven defenseman worked out when Marc Methot left after the first period with a lower-body injury and did not return. Boucher said after the game that Ottawa knew Methot was dealing with an issue, which is why the Senators used an extra defender.Suter scored late in the first and Ottawa continued to struggle in the second, leaving Anderson to keep the team in the game. He made huge saves on Nino Niederreiter and Erik Staal to keep it 1-0.The Senators had four power-play opportunities and struggled to create offense, a common refrain for the team as of late.The Wild made the Senators power play look even worse when they scored short-handed. Staal got off a shot and Suter was there for the rebound.Game notes LW Matt Puempel was a late healthy scratch for the Senators. ... Minnesota LW Zach Parise (lower body) missed his sixth straight game. C Joel Eriksson and D Nate Prosser were a healthy scratch.UP NEXTWild: Host Calgary on Tuesday night.Senators: Play at Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Custom Basketball Jerseys . They reached the 100-point plateau for the fourth time in five games, bested the visiting Trail Blazers by 34 in the paint and scored 19 of the final 25 points in regulation. Cheap Basketball Jerseys .C. -- Manny Malhotra had two goals and an assist, leading the Carolina Hurricanes to a 6-3 win over the Ottawa Senators on Saturday. . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. Fake Basketball Jerseys Free Shipping . The Nashville Predators were glad their captain was still on their side. Weber had a goal and two assists, and Roman Josi scored the shootout winner to lift the Predators to a 4-3 win over the Flyers on Thursday night. Cyber Monday Basketball Jerseys . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. RIO DE JANEIRO -- Two years ago the British womens hockey team came up with this mission statement: Be the difference, create history, inspire the future.In Deodoro on Friday night it was mission accomplished with their dramatic penalty-shootout victory against double Olympic champions the Netherlands.It wasnt pretty for much of the match, which ended 3-3, but Team GB is on such a roll in Brazil that the path its athletes have been on seems to be golden come what may.Goalkeeper Maddie Hinch was, appropriately, kitted out in the colour of the medal she deserved and no player did more to help the team complete their mission.Inevitably, the Twittersphere was awash with tributes to the 27-year-old who was overlooked for the team that won bronze at London 2012. Gary Lineker and Stuart Broad were among those gushing with praise, and Michael Vaughan had the most outrageous suggestion. Even author J.K. Rowling saw the magic in Hinch and her shootout heroics.The goalkeeper was superb during a match which mostly saw Team GB on the back foot, having to make a series of impressive and key saves to provide hope and keep them in the contest.In the shootout, despite once needing the assistance of the post, she produced a shutout which enabled her side to win that 2-0.It helped that Britain had beaten the Netherlands in a shootout in the EuroHockey Championships last year, but Hinch would have known everything about their players anyway.Her secret? Research and practice -- and the help of a video analyst who used to work for Reading Football Club and is considered something of a genius within the squad.I am glad I made the nation proud, Hinch said. I was a bit nervous and my legs felt really heavy but I was confident as well. It was a great chance for me to do my bit as a goalie. I enjoy shootouts.We definitely backed ourselves going into it. I give myself a gameplan for each player and I go out and execute that.It is all in the notebook. I am constantly keeping my database up to date. We have a huge amount of data and I can go back years and years and look at details of one player, what she has done every time. I narrowed it to one plan for each player.Hinch even takes notes into the game written on her water bottle and the detailed, scientific approach is typical of a team under the leadership of coach Danny Kerry. Unlike the players for certain other national teams from the UK in the past, Team GB womens hockey players do practicce penalties.dddddddddddd.The fervent hope of Hinch and every other British player and coach who spoke to the media afterwards was that this result would give British hockey lift-off; that this would be their Sean Kerly moment - a game-changing filip for a sport that has been in the doldrums, as it was when he and the British mens team struck gold in Seoul.Do you remember watching in 1988, the mens final? captain Kate Richardson-Walsh asked wife and cool penalty-stroke taker in the shootout, Helen Richardson-Walsh.I was eight and I know interest in hockey increased so much. We really want that again. We want to inspire boys, girls, everybody to pick up a hockey stick. I hope the people who played at school go back and pick up a stick again.The game has changed. Its for everybody, a family sport - we welcome everybody with open arms.As the first same-sex married couple to win a Games title, they can speak from personal experience about the inclusive nature of the sport in Britain.To win an Olympic medal is special, Kate said. To win it with your wife standing next to you, taking the penalty at the pressure moment, is so special, and we will cherish this for the rest of our lives.This was Kates last competition in international hockey and Helen all but confirmed it would be hers, too. Like the sport that means so much to them, they have been through a lot.What a journey it has been for both of us, Helen said. We made our debuts in 1999 and its been 17 years of ups and, probably, mostly downs. We started very low, eighth in Sydney, and from that moment myself and Kate just wanted to win a gold medal and become Olympic champions. Its not been easy but it shows if you dedicate your life to something you can make it happen.Until the London cycle it was really a dream but that turned everything around. It was something that could happen. We got belief in the squad. Two years ago I didnt think I was going to be on the pitch again [after two back operations], let alone standing here winning a gold medal. Its incredible for hockey in our country.As a team, they certainly made a difference on Friday. History was created, too, as they became the first British womens hockey side to win an Olympic title. And if the last quarter of their match and the penalty shootout didnt inspire people, nothing will. ' ' '
