Detroit did whatever it wanted on both sides of the bal from miao1234's blog

ST. Adidas Superstar Slip On Uk . LOUIS -- Brian Elliott was signed as a free agent this summer to be the backup goalie for the St. Louis Blues. He has turned out to be much more. Elliot made 25 saves to lead the Blues to a 4-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night. The win was Elliotts ninth in his last 10 games and 13th in 15 tries overall. Along the way, he lowered his NHL-leading goals-against average to 1.43 and increased his league-best save percentage to .950. After his team gave Elliott a quick two-goal lead, Elliott made it stand up. "Weve been playing well with leads," Elliott said. "We took the lead, put it in our back pocket and played the rest of the game. I dont think we played their game. We kept taking it to them." Although he has played as well as any goalie in the league, Elliott has stayed fresh. Elliott splits time with the Blues big acquisition from the previous off-season, Jaroslav Halak. In 15 games, Halak is 5-7-3, but he has a 2.37 goals-against average. Its a testament to the team," Elliott said. "Theyre blocking shots I cant see and ones that I can, theres no second opportunities and theyre clearing it out. "Thats huge for a goalie. I think both Jaro and myself can say thanks to the guys in front of us because it makes it a lot easier on us." The Blues (7-0-1) have 15 of a possible 16 points against Eastern Conference foes this season. St. Louis also has beaten up the Rangers over the past 10 years, going 9-1-3 since 2000-01. The loss was just the eighth for the Rangers in regulation. "We werent good. They were," Rangers coach John Tortorella said. "I cant make it any (more) simplified. Tonight, they were the better team." Steens goal put him in double digits with 10. Patrik Berglund, David Perron and Jami Langenbrunner also scored for the Blues, who have points in 14 of their last 16 games. "I thought we really did a lot of good things today," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said. "We moved the puck, our exits were as good as its been all year. We were able to get out of our zone and not get hemmed in. We were able to sustain a good quality game from start to finish." Michael Del Zotto scored for New York, and Henrik Lundqvist made 32 saves. "It was tough," Lundqvist said. "I felt pretty sharp, but there were a couple of tough bounces. Theyre a good team. They play very solid." Given Elliotts stinginess, the Rangers put themselves in a big hole by allowing two goals in the first 11:03. Berglund opened the scoring at 7:06 when he walked out from the corner and beat Lundqvist with a wrist shot from the right circle. Just 3:57 later, Perron tipped home Carlo Colaiacovos shot from the left point, marking the first time the Blues had scored two goals in the first period since Oct. 22, a span of 21 games. "The way their goaltenders playing, you obviously dont want to go down 2-0," New Yorks Brad Richards said. "Its going to be a tough one to come back from." The Blues outshot the Rangers 13-5 in the second period, but New York got the only goal when Del Zotto beat Elliott with a backhander at 16:18 to make it 2-1. Steen gave St. Louis its two-goal lead back when he scored 1:01 into the third period. Langenbrunner then scored into an empty net with 2:17 left to seal it. Notes: Colaiacovos next assist will be his 100th. ... The Blues and the Red Wings are the only teams that Lundqvist has failed to beat in his career. Hes 0-3-0 against St. Louis. ... St. Louis is 13-0-0 when it scores three or more goals. ... The game marked only the 11th time in 29 games an opponent has scored more than two goals against New York. . Coach Jose Pekerman has until June 2 to name the final 23-man squad. Falcao has been sidelined since January. If he recovers in time -- surgeons initially gave him a 50-50 chance -- Colombia could be one of the real threats in the World Cup. Nike Air Max 90 White Leather Womens . -- Hockey fans in Brandon only needed to show up for one period, and the Wheat Kings made it count.DETROIT -- Matthew Stafford and Reggie Bush did their part to keep the Aaron Rodgers-less Green Bay Packers in the game. Stafford turned the ball over a few times and Bush did once. Instead of crumbling and losing confidence, both players bounced back and helped the Detroit Lions put together a dominant performance after an awful start. Stafford threw three touchdown passes, including one to Calvin Johnson, Bush had 182 yards of offence and scored, and Detroit scored 37 straight points to rout Green Bay 40-10 on Thursday. "When we get out of our own way, we can be pretty special," Bush said. Early on, it looked as if the Lions were going to find another way to waste chances to win a game and take control of the NFC North. "Its easy when you lose a couple games in a row, particularly the fashion that we lost, for people to say, Here we go again," Detroit coach Jim Schwartz said. "Im sure there were some people that were saying that, but they werent on our sideline." The Lions (7-5) had lost their last two games, five consecutive against Green Bay and a franchise-record nine straight in their annual showcase on Thanksgiving. "Its a step in the right direction for us," Stafford said. "Im sure the turkey will taste better." The Packers (5-6-1) have a five-game winless streak for the first time since 2008. "Were not used to anything like this -- not on this team," Green Bay linebacker A.J. Hawk said. "This is something that is going to make a lot of guys on this team think, and thats good. We need to find some answers because they just ran the ball down our throats." Bush responded from fumbling deep in Green Bay territory to score a 1-yard TD run that gave Detroit a 17-10 lead late in the first half. He finished with 117 yards rushing and 65 yards receiving. Bush backup, Joique Bell, ran for a career-high 94 yards and a score. The Packers, painfully, are finding out how valuable Rodgers is for the franchise. Rodgers has missed four-plus games since fracturing his left collarbone. Green Bay has tied one and lost four without him. "Were a wounded team that got drilled by a good football team," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. Matt Flynn became the fourth starting quarterback for Green Bay this year and was sacked seven times, once by Ndamukong Suh for a safety. Flynn didnt fare as well as he did in his last start for Green Bay against the same opponent. He was 10 of 20 for 139 yards with an interception and two fumbles. In the last game of the 2011 regular season, while Rodgers rested for the playoffs, Flynn threw for 480 yards and six TDs in a 45-41 win over Detroit. "They might have a lot of the same guys, but I can say theyre a different defence," Flynn said. "Theyre flying around, creating havoc." The Packers have been leaning on rookie running back Eddie Lacy lately, but he was limited to 16 yards on 10 carries against one of the NFLs best defences against the run. Detroit was balanced on offence. Johnson had six receptions for 101 yards and a 20-yard TD to put the Lions up 24-10 early in the third quarter. He has 4,944 yards receiving in two-plus seasons, breaking Jerry Rices NFL record for yards receiving in a three-year stretch. Rice had 4,850 yards receiving from 1993 to 1995. Stafford was 22 of 35 for 330 yards with two interceptions and a fumble that was returned by Morgan Burnett to put the Packers up 10-3 early in the second quarter. After that, Detroit did whatever it wanted on both sides of the ball. And if the Lions didnt start the game so poorly, the score couldve been even more lopsided. Detroit gained 561 yards and gave up just 126. Green Bay didnt have more than 100 yards of offence until Flynn threw a 56-yard pass to Jordy Nelson with a little more than a minute left. Flynn then fumbled in a fitting end for a game that he and his team would like to forget. Packers guard Josh Sitton mightve fired up the Lions, saying they were "dirtbags," a couple days before the game, but didnt seem to regret his choice of words. "I dont take back anything I said," Sitton said. "But I dont want to stand here and discuss it again." NOTES: Green Bay C Evan Dietrich-Smith, two years after he was stomped on by Suh, left the game with knee injury and didnt return. ... Packers TE Ryan Taylor was knocked out of the game and was evaluated for a concussion after a crunching hit by Detroits DeAndre Levy, who made his NFL-leading sixth interception during the game. ... Lions CB Chris Houston was inactive with a foot injury and was replaced by rookie Darius Slay. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
