fended off a tackler near the goal from hily123's blog

OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators would have had Tuesdays game against the Detroit Red Wings wrapped up in the first period if it wasnt for Jimmy Howard. Tim Hardaway Warriors Jersey .Instead, nothing was decided until late in the game — despite the fact the Senators held a 16-2 shot advantage in the opening 20 minutes.Patrick Wierciochs first goal of the season was the game winner as he moved in from the point and beat Howard with a wrist shot with less than six minutes to play in regulation as the Senators beat the Red Wings 3-1 at Canadian Tire Centre.Niklas Kronwall hit a post that would have tied the game just seconds later but, as the Red Wings continued to press for the equalizer, Clarke MacArthur scored into an empty net at 19:02 to give the Senators the win.We didnt skate and when you dont skate its tough to win battles. We didnt even play in the first period, said Kronwall.Erik Karlsson also had a goal as well as an assist for the Senators (6-3-2) while Craig Anderson made 31 saves.Henrik Zetterberg had the lone goal for the Red Wings (6-3-3) as he beat Anderson with a backhand at 3:34 of the third period to tie the game. Howard finished with 30 saves.I liked the way we moved the puck out of our zone tonight. We fumbled around with it a little in the second and the third but I thought in the first we were direct, passes getting out and it makes it tough for them to forecheck, MacArthur said.It was a great game, he added. They have a great hockey team over there with a lot of speed and every line there are guys that are dangerous. Andy (Anderson) is a top-end goalie in this league and he showed it. For us to get that in regulation is a great feeling.With the game tied 1-1, Anderson bailed out Karlsson with an acrobatic save off Tomas Jurco following a two-on-one that was created by a Karlsson give away at the Detroit blue-line.Anderson was particularly busy through the final 40 minutes of the game as 30 of the 32 shots he faced came during the second and third periods.The Senators certainly deserved a better reward than a scoreless tie following their first-period performance that saw them heavily outshoot the Red Wings.Howard was especially good during a nearly four-minute span in the second half of the period when the Red Wings took consecutive penalties.The Senators had a brief five-on-three advantage for 20 seconds during that span but were unable to generate anything as they lost the initial face-off after the second penalty and the Red Wings were able to ice the puck.Kyle Turris beat Howard early in the second period but, by the time Turris took his shot, Howard was lying face down in the net having been run into by a sliding Brendan Smith.The goal was waved off as Howard was hurt on the play, however he did stay in the game and stopped Turris on a short-handed breakaway a few moments later.They really dictated the play. They really skated in the first period and we didnt, Howard said.Its tough to get the puck into the offensive zone when theyre catching you from behind all the time. We did not do a good job getting the puck out at our blue-line and getting it in at theirs, he added. The Senators finally got one past Howard that counted as Karlsson needed just 37 seconds of a power play to score on a shot from the point at 14:37 of the second. Turris picked up a bit of redemption with the primary assist.The way this game went it gives us momentum going forward even though this game was see-sawed, Senators coach Paul MacLean said. I though the last eight minutes our leadership group did a really good job of settling things down, getting us the game and bringing this home. We deserved this.The win also halted a two-game losing streak for the Senators while the Red Wings have now lost two straight.Notes: Colin Greening, Mark Borowiecki and Alex Chiasson were scratches for the Senators while Daniel Cleary, Kyle Quincy and Andrej Nestrasil were scratches for the Red Wings...With his second period assist, Turris now has 99 for his career…Tuesdays meeting was the 30th all-time between the Senators and Red Wings, 18 of which have been won by the Red Wings…Ottawas general manager Bryan Murray was Detroits head coach from 1990-93 and Ottawas current coach, Paul MacLean, was an assistant with Detroit from 2005-11.

Draymond Green Warriors Jersey . -- Zach Johnson is like most players at the World Challenge, not sure whether hes still playing in 2013 or if hes in the middle of the new wraparound season that officially started in October.Cleveland, OH (SportsNetwork.com) - Andrew Lucks 1-yard touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton with 32 seconds left in the fourth quarter rallied the Indianapolis Colts to a 25-24 victory over the Cleveland Browns. The Colts (9-4) won their third straight game to inch closer to the AFC South title, while dealing the Browns (7-6) a heart-breaking defeat after they blew a two-touchdown lead. Luck connected on 24-of-53 throws for 294 yards with two scores and a pair of interceptions, both to Hilton, who had 10 catches for 150 yards. The Colts hold a two-game lead on Houston and can win the division with a home victory against the Texans next Sunday. We struggled early. Credit to them, said Luck. Our tempo definitely helped. We were forced into a hurry-up tempo but I think that it was beneficial. The Browns had a pair of defensive TDs, but lost their second straight for the first time this season. It was a perfect opportunity for Cleveland to gain ground in the AFC North, especially with Cincinnati (8-4-1) falling at home to Pittsburgh (8-5) Sunday. The Ravens (8-5) won in Miami. Brian Hoyer finished 14-of-31 for 140 yards with two interceptions for the Browns. Obviously, very disappointed, said Browns coach Mike Pettine. When you lose a close game like that, for the most part our guys played at a high level. Jim Leonhard picked off Luck early in the fourth quarter, and that led to Billy Cundiffs 39-yard field goal, which extended Clevelands lead to 24-19. The Browns got the ball back with 6:43 remaining at their own 13 following a punt and were trying to run time off the clock when Hoyer connected with Josh Gordon over the middle for 14 yards on a 3rd-and-8 play. Gordon made a diving grab, but the Colts successfully challenged the call and the Browns punted. Indianapolis started the drive at its 10 and it nearly ended right away when Barkevious Mingo came through and nearly swatted the ball away before sacking Luck. On 3rd-and-7, Luck fired over the middle to Donte Moncreif for a 27-yard gain. Then came a 35-yard pass interference penalty on Buster Skrine. Coby Fleener made a 13-yard catch to the Cleveland 12 on 3rd-and-10, and the Colts only kept their winning drive alive thanks to a great spin move by running back Dan Herron. Damian Jones Warriors Jersey. On 4th-and-1, he spun out of a tackle and gained two yards to the 1. On the next play, Hilton made a catch on the left side of the end zone. Hoyer was picked off by Josh Gordy to cement the outcome. Hoyer was benched early in the fourth quarter of last Sundays 26-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Browns coach Mike Pettine didnt announce until Wednesday that Hoyer would stay on as the starter instead of Johnny Manziel. Mike Adams picked off Hoyer in the end zone with nearly five minutes left in the first quarter, but it was Clevelands defense which came through with the first points of the game. Facing a 3rd-and-10 from the Indianapolis 10, Luck faced heavy pressure up the middle from Desmond Bryant. Paul Kruger knocked the ball loose and Craig Robertson recovered in the end zone. Cundiff pushed a 40-yard field goal try wide right with 8:50 left in the half, and the Colts tied the game on their next possession. Luck faced a 3rd-and-8 at the 11 when he stepped up in the pocket and fended off a tackler near the goal line to equal the score. Hoyer came right back by leading his team on a 9-play, 77-yard scoring march that ended with a 9-yard run by Isaiah Crowell with 1:14 left on the clock. Indys first two possessions of the second half ended with a turnover. Hilton fumbled the ball away after making a short reception. Luck was then intercepted by Justin Gilbert on the right side of the field, and he rumbled 23 yards to the end zone for a 21-7 margin. Adam Vinatieri kicked a 51-yard field goal, and then the Colts got closer when Luck found Hilton for a 42-yard score. Lucks pass to the end zone for the 2- point conversion was picked off by Leonhard, leaving the Colts with a 21-16 deficit. Game Notes The Colts have beaten the Brown five straight times on the road ... This marked Indys first trip to Cleveland since Nov. 30, 2008 ... Trent Richardson was limited to 30 yards on seven carries for Indianapolis.
