The New York Rangers withstood early pressure from the Montreal Canadiens and goaltender Henrik Lundqvist was on top of his game as the New York Rangers took Game Two with a 3-1 win. Kurt Coleman Saints Jersey . Before the game started, the Canadiens had announced that G Carey Price would be out for the series, with a knee injury suffered in a collision with Rangers LW Chris Kreider, and head coach Michel Therrien made the decision to go with Dustin Tokarski in Prices place. Tokarski, 24, has posted a .921 save percentage in 56 games with Hamilton of the AHL since he was acquired from Tampa Bay last year, and stopped 88 of 93 shots (.946 SV%) in three games with the Canadiens this year, but Tokarski has also started 10 NHL games in his career, so the decision came with a certain amount of risk. Montreal opened the game asserting territorial control, with 24 of the first 34 unblocked shot attempts in the game. Habs LW Max Pacioretty got the Canadiens on the board first, 6:14 into the game, with his third goal in the past four games. At that point, the Canadiens were looking good. Only 17 seconds later, Rangers D Ryan McDonagh scored on a shot that deflected off D Josh Gorges and past Tokarski. McDonagh added an assist later, giving him six points in the first two games of the series. As the first period neared a close, the Rangers looked like they might be able to escape with a tie score despite getting the wrong end of the puck possession game, but then circumstances got even better for the Blueshirts. A quick-break three-on-two, following a defensive zone face-off, resulted in a goal for Rick Nash, the second straight game in which he has scored. Tokarski could have come across the crease quicker, perhaps but, even so, Nashs one-time snap shot was stoppable. It was the kind of goal for which Tokarski shouldnt really be blamed -- he didnt give up the three-on-two break -- but, especially in the playoffs, it was the kind of goal that comes under more scrutiny. So the Canadiens, who might have been somewhat frustrated to end the first frame tied despite dominating play, werent even tied, they were down by a goal. Then, 8:03 into the second period, Rangers RW Martin St. Louis scored a power goal, with a rocket shot inside the post, and the Canadiens climb got much steeper. Montreal was stifled for much of the rest of the game, with a few surges, particularly on a power play, with Tokarski pulled, in the last four minutes, but Lundqvist was there to turn back any Habs attempts. In his last five games, Lundqvist has stopped 162 of 168 shpts (.964 SV%) and, over the past three seasons, has a .933 save percentage in the playoffs. Not exactly an easy head-to-head matchup for Tokarski to win. The Canadiens got LW Alex Galchenyuk back in the lineup -- his first game since suffering a knee injury April 9 against Chicago -- and the line of Brendan Gallagher, David Desharnais and Max Pacioretty was on for more than 86% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts when they were on the ice. D P.K. Subban had 18 shot attempts (nine on net, six blocked, three missed the net) and Gallagher had 13 attempts. More problematic for the Canadiens is that Thomas Vanek didnt register a shot on goal. In the past seven games, Vanek has registered either one or zero shots in six of them. Its not as if the Canadiens have altogether no hope, but its not an easy task to come back from a two-games-to-none series deficit, and doing so with questions in goal makes that scenario all the less likely. They will need a dramatically different performance in New York if they are going to reverse the path which is currently leading them to the offseason in short order.

MacIntyre stopped 49 shots and the Marlies defeated the Texas Stars 5-1 in Game 1 of the American Hockey Leagues Western Conference final. "I felt in control, so that was nice," MacIntyre said.

Hernandez (3-0) struck out 11 and shut down Oakland for the second time in a week, becoming the first Mariners pitcher to win three times in the first nine games of a season. With the usual "Kings Court" for Hernandez home starts expanded to a "Supreme Court" encompassing the entire stadium with yellow shirts and "K" cards, Hernandez gave up four hits in the 28th double-digit strikeout game of his career.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - No doubt about it.Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are the dominant coach-quarterback pair in the NFL. And they left no question that they deserve the sixth Super Bowl appearance of their brilliant careers.Brady threw for 226 yards and three touchdowns, Belichick got his league-high 21st post-season win and the New England Patriots routed the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 in the AFC championship game Sunday night.Weve had a lot of good teams in the past, Brady said. This one is going to have to win a very important game to kind of leave our legacy.Its the most important one. The Patriots (14-4) will face defending champion Seattle (14-4) on Feb. 1 in Glendale, Arizona, as they seek their first Super Bowl win in 10 years after winning three in four. The Seahawks beat the Green Bay Packers 28-22 in overtime in the NFC title game Sunday.LeGarrette Blount ran for 148 yards and three touchdowns for New England in the second-most lopsided win in an AFC title game.You look around and people are posing with the trophy, everybodys smiling, Patriots linebacker Donta Hightower said in the locker room. Everybodys smiling. Even coach Belichick is smiling.Andrew Lucks expression was much different after his worst game since he was chosen with the top pick in the 2012 draft. He completed 12 of 33 passes for 126 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions. He is 0-4 against the Patriots with every loss by at least 21 points.Its hard to find much good right now, fresh off this game, Luck said. We had our sights set higher.The Patriots lost AFC title games the past two seasons after losing to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl after the 2011 season.Its so much work just to get there and losing the last time we were there hurt, New England safety Devin McCourty said. Weve got to play a great team. They wouldnt be there if they werent and to go back two years in a row is tough, and they did it.The Patriots have a pretty impressive history, too.Brady surpassed John Elway for most Super Bowl appearances for a quarterback and tied defensive lineman Mike Lodish for most by any player. Belichick tied Don Shula for most Super Bowls for a coach and broke a tie with Tom Landry with his 21st post-season win. And New England tied Dallas and Pittsburgh for most appearances in the big game with eight.I know weve had some ups and downs this year, Brady said of a team that split its first four games, but right now were up, baby, and were going to try to stay up for one more game.Some things to take from the Patriots blowout win:UP HIS HOODIE SLEEVE: One game after receiver Julian Edelman threw a touchdown paass to beat Baltimore, the Patriots pulled out another trick play. Cameron Meredith Jersey. With a third-and-1 on the Colts 16 early in the third quarter, offensive tackle Nate Solder reported as an eligible receiver and caught a touchdown pass from Brady to give New England a 24-7 lead.It was amazing to be a part of a game like that and have a cool play like that, Solder said. The stars were aligned.Belichick repeatedly caught the Ravens off guard last week when they used skill players as ineligible receivers. Against Indianapolis, the crowd cheered every time the referee announced an eligible or ineligible receiver.Brady noted that Solder played tight end his first year in college at Colorado.So I dont know, he said, maybe we have more tricks up our sleeve.COACHING TREE: The Super Bowl will feature the two most recent Patriots coaches.Belichick has had great success in New England, winning six AFC titles and three Super Bowls. But Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was a flop in Foxborough, coaching the team for three seasons and winning fewer games in each one than the year before.Carroll then went to Southern Cal, winning two national championships and finishing in the top 5 of The Associated Press poll seven times in nine years before returning to the NFL with the Seahawks.NO EXCUSES: Luck wouldnt blame the rainy weather and Colts coach Chuck Pagano wouldnt blame distractions for the loss.I dont think it had a negative effect on anything, Luck said about his dome-team struggling in the rain.The Colts placed backup linebacker Josh McNary on the commissioners exempt list Thursday, less than 24 hours after prosecutors filed criminal charges against him. Reserve offensive tackle Xavier Nixon missed the teams flight Saturday and was inactive. Running back Trent Richardson missed the walk-through Saturday and didnt travel with the team.Weve got too good of veteran leadership in that locker room, and were not going to use that as any excuse, Pagano said.BABY STEPS: The Colts have improved by one game in each of Lucks three seasons. They lost in the wild-card round to Baltimore in 2012 and the Patriots beat them in the divisional round last year.Well learn from this, well grow from this and well go to work and make 2015 better than 2014, Pagano said.SPREADING THE WEALTH: Rob Gronkowski didnt catch his first pass until the middle of the third quarter and finished with only three receptions for 28 yards and one touchdown. But the Patriots didnt need much from their All-Pro tight end, who was matched up against nemesis Sergio Brown.___AP NFL website: and Wholesale Hoodies NFL Shirts Outlet Jerseys NFL Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
