TSNs Jack Armstrong offers his thoughts on the impressive run of the Phoenix Suns, the absence of Patrick Patterson in the Toronto Raptors lineup, and the upcoming mayhem of NCAA March Madness. Cheap Marlins Jerseys Authentic . 1. PHOENIX SUNS: Second time this year Ive seen them in person and watched them countless other times on TV. Quite impressed with this squad. Ten games over .500 in the brutal Western Conference. Who would have thought that in the Fall? Heres the amazing thing - theyve got a very favourable salary cap situation as well as three first-round picks and a second-round selection in this years deep draft. Long term it really puts them in a nice situation bringing players into a winning and competitive environment internally where talented young picks will have to earn their minutes rather than having them handed to them as it happens on lousy teams. Good for the growth of the franchise. 2. PATRICK PATTERSON (Raptors): Even though his team is 3-2 without him and lost both games by less than 10 points, you can clearly see that they miss him big-time. His ability to shoot the three, rebound, defend on the perimeter and in the post and overall smart play is really missed. The second unit was absolutely dominated yesterday by the Suns and when youre missing one of your main focal points of your second unit youll get exposed some days. Yesterday was one of them. 3. CANADIANS IN THE NCAAS: Theyll be a bunch of them to watch and well have it covered on TSN starting on Thursday. Really cool to see some of the elite teams having young Canadian players who have vital roles. The game keeps growing and the stories get better. 4. NCAA FINAL FOUR & CHAMPS: My Picks for the Final Four are: Florida, Duke, Oklahoma and Virginia. My Pick for the champs is: Florida. 5. A FEW NCAA LOWER SEEDS THAT CAN WIN A 1ST ROUND GAME : Harvard, St. Josephs, Providence, Nebraska, Oklahoma State and Arizona State. Always fun to see who will be this years Cinderella which makes the tournament really special. Have fun and enjoy the games! I cant wait! Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .

The Coyotes (15-20-4) havent presented much of a problem for the Jets (20-13-7), who have won five straight in the series while allowing six goals, including a season-opening 6-2 victory in Arizona on Oct. 9. The rest of the Pacific, though, has handed Winnipeg a 1-5-1 record. That includes Mondays 3-2 home loss to San Jose for the Jets third defeat in four games. They fell behind three times and evened the score twice, but the Sharks scored in the closing seconds of the third period. The Jets are winless in 13 games in which theyve trailed after two, and their 26 third-period goals are more than only Arizona (24). Were not holding back, coach Paul Maurice said. I liked our third period as much as any part of our game. I dont think we can open up our game more to generate more. The offense came from Jay Harrison and Andrew Ladd, who has four goals and five assists in the last six games. Well take a moment and well fix whats wrong and (figure out) how we can build towards playing that 60-minute game, Harrison told the teams official website. Youve got to have a short memory. We play a lot of hockey games and theres certainly a lot of hockey left. Both goals came on the power play, where Winnipeg is 6 of 15 over four games, while Arizonas penalty kill is 5 for 10 over three games. Blake Wheeler and Bryan Little assisted on Ladds goal. Wheeler has seven points on a six-game streak, and Little has 10 during a seven-game run. Both scored twice in the opener against Arizona and Wheeler added an assist. Little has four goals and two assists on a five-game point streak in the series. Arizona is playing the third of six straight at home, where it had won four in a row before Tuesdays 6-0 loss to St. Andre Dawson Jersey. Louis. It was the Coyotes second 6-0 defeat in three games. Mike Smith allowed all six goals on 39 shots against the Blues and has a 4.85 goals-against average over a 1-5-0 span, but his coach labeled the loss a defensive disaster. Thats not a goaltender problem, thats a people in front of him problem, Dave Tippett said. Thats a look in the mirror issue and see where were at. Smith has dropped four straight to the Jets with a 3.45 GAA. Ondrej Pavelec will start for Winnipeg after Michael Hutchinson played the first two games of the new year. Pavelec has a 3.14 GAA over a 1-1-3 span, though hes been in goal for each of the Jets wins in the series streak with a 1.16 GAA. In front of Pavelec, Winnipegs banged-up blue line could be getting some help. Defenseman Zach Bogosian may return from a 14-game absence due to a lower-body injury. Grant Clitsome (upper body) will miss the trip, while fellow defensemen Tobias Enstrom and Mark Stuart have been out with lower-body injuries. Forward Evander Kane (lower body) has been out four games and is also nearing a return. Arizona center Martin Hanzal missed the St. Louis game with an upper-body injury, and his status is uncertain.
