Penguins to a Stanley Cup, Crosbys impact has been felt as much on th Antworten

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Theres growing concern on the New York Jets about the status of wide receiver Eric Decker, who aggravated a shoulder injury in Sundays loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.Decker is expected to have an MRI this week to determine the severity of the injury. He didnt practice on Wednesday and wasnt spotted at the field, an indication the injury could be serious.Coach Todd Bowles said hes not sure yet if Decker will play Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks.Anybody that doesnt practice Im concerned about, Bowles said. He came back last week without practicing, so we just have to wait and see.Actually, Decker wound up practicing two days and wasnt listed on the injury report. He played every offensive snap in the game, finishing with only one catch in the 24-3 defeat. He didnt mention the shoulder aggravation until Tuesday, Bowles said.The Jets (1-2) could be thin at wide receiver because rookie Jalin Marshall is out at least two weeks with a torn labrum in his shoulder. He will try to rehab the injury, but he could have season-ending surgery if that fails.Jalin Marshall is the No. 4 receiver (five catches for 64 yards) and returns punts and kickoffs. Rookie Robby Anderson would move into the No. 4 role and also could replace Marshall in his returning jobs.If Decker is out, too, the Jets would line up with Brandon Marshall, Quincy Enunwa and Anderson as the top three receivers, with seldom-used rookie Charone Peake as the No. 4. Brandon Marshall still isnt 100 percent, dealing with a minor knee sprain.?Bowles said the Jets may add a receiver to the roster.Newly acquired tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, cut last week by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers following a DUI arrest, has receiving skills, but he probably wont be ready to play by Sunday. In fact, he didnt arrive until Wednesday afternoon and wont make his practice debut until Thursday.?Cornerback Darrelle Revis tweaked an ankle on Wednesday and didnt practice, but it doesnt appear to be serious.Not much [concern], Bowles said. Discount Chargers Jersesys .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Cheap Los Angeles Chargers Jersesys .com) - The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks both take aim at their first wins of the season on Saturday, as the Canucks open their home slate at Rogers Arena. . Goals from Jerome Boateng, Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller extended Bayerns unbeaten run to a record 37 matches. "This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. Cheap Uchenna Nwosu Jersey .C. -- Calgarys Kevin Koe did it the hard way again. Cheap Kyzir White Jersey . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. TORONTO -- The last team standing in the way of juggernaut Canada winning the World Cup of Hockey was a figment of the NHLs imagination.Oh, but theyre for real, all right.Team Europe shockingly faces Canada in the best-of-three final after upsetting Sweden in the semifinals.Flash back to Sept. 11, when after four periods of pretournament play, Europe was down 9-1 to the North American kids. Can you possibly imagine the reaction of the European players in that very moment had you told them theyd be in the World Cup finals two weeks later?It was a turning point for our group, star defenseman Roman Josi of the Nashville Predators said after Europes dramatic, 3-2 OT win over Sweden. [W]e just told ourselves, we either try to come together and play as a group or pack it in now. We showed a lot of character. I think we played really good the rest of the pretournament period and we carried that into the tournament.Canada beat Europe 4-1 in round-robin play, so it has an idea about the new outfit.You put all those countries together, theres lots of good players there, Team Canada head coach Mike Babcock said immediately after Sundays 3-2 overtime win by Europe over Sweden in the second semifinal. I like their back end, I like the goaltending, I think theyve done a real good job through the middle of the rink with their team. Theyve got a good-looking team. Thats why you play these games. All the experts can predict what they want, but you got to play the games and decide.Made up of veteran players from eight countries, Europe plays a very patient game and limits its mistakes. The team is no pushover.They are a great story, said Canada GM Doug Armstrong, Shame on us if we dont take them seriously for what theyve done to this point.Lets not kid ourselves here, Europe will still be massive underdogs in the World Cup finals. Since Sweden won Olympic gold at Torino in 2006, Team Canada has gone into cruise control, winning gold at Vancouver 2010 and Sochi 2014 while carrying a 14-game win streak in best-on-best hockey heading into the best-of-three, World Cup of Hockey championship finals.Game 1 goes Tuesday night here at Air Canada Centre (8 p.m. ET, ESPN).This is a powerhouse Canadian side that has outscored the opposition 19-6 in four tournament games and trailed for only 2:41 in total. But Europe has nothing to lose, right?Best playersEurope: Europes solid blue-line play leads to the crux of the narrative for this final as Canadas four-line forward attack has left the opposition in shambles with its forecheck and puck pressure. If Europes veteran blue-line corps led by Josi and Zdena Chara can swiftly navigate out of their zone without coughing up the puck constantlly like Russia and Team USA did against Canada, then thats a major plus toward Europe trying to produce the upset.ddddddddddddUp front, Anze Kopitar must take on either Sidney Crosby or Jonathan Toews and play the hockey of his life. Kopitar has been one of the top-five centers in the world while winning two Stanley Cups with the Los Angeles Kings, but this is a monumental challenge for him.Canada: Crosby is playing at a whole other level from the rest of the tournament, the front-runner for tournament MVP honors. Just like his most recent playoffs when he led the Pittsburgh Penguins to a Stanley Cup, Crosbys impact has been felt as much on the defensive side of the puck as his obvious offensive talents. His line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron has been out of this world from the get-go.Ryan Getzlaf and John Tavares have been a pairing up front since Day 1 of camp and their chemistry has grown impressively; on a line with Steve Stamkos, they were awfully impressive in the semifinal win over Russia. And, as always, whenever Canada seems to get into a bit of a lull, Toews does the heavy lifting. His engine never stops.Matchup to watchRalph Krueger versus Mike Babcock. For my money, these are the best two coaches in the tournament. No surprise there with Babcock, the NHLs highest-paid coach while leading the Toronto Maple Leafs and Canada to back-to-back Olympic gold medals. Once again, hes sold a very specific game plan to his star-studded squad and gotten a complete buy-in from every single player. Thats not easy. Krueger, a longtime former Swiss national team head coach, has a brilliant hockey mind. He was part of Babcocks staff in Sochi, helping Canada adjust to the bigger ice, so there are no secrets between them.Ive known Ralph since 04 world championships, Babcock said. Ralph and I are good friends. We talk a lot. Hes a very, very intelligent person. He was a good head coach in the National Hockey League. Hes been around a long time, a good coach in Europe. ... He has these guys believing and prepared and in the finals. From where they were at one point when they got lit up a couple of times early to now where they are, hes done a heck of a job.PredictionHaving been with Team Canada since camp opened Sept. 5, and watching this team bring its total game to a whole other level, even from the team that went a perfect 6-0-0 in Sochi, I just cant see how Canada will lose a period, let alone the series. Canada is absolutely humming on all levels.Team Canada will win each game by at least two goals and sweep the series 2-0.
