TORONTO – From the window of his hotel room at the Westin Ottawa hotel, Nazem Kadri and a few of his teammates watched as the horrific action unfolded on a day that neither he nor the rest of the nation will ever forget. http://www.flyknitshoescheap.ca/nike-free-4-0-flyknit-black-gray-men-s-shoes.html . The National War Memorial, where Cpl. Nathan Cirillo was tragically gunned down Wednesday morning, was only 400 hundred metres away from the Maple Leafs downtown hotel, on the opposite side of the Rideau Canal. They were preparing to play the Ottawa Senators for the first time this season that night. From the window they saw the police stalking the streets in search of suspects with their guns drawn, news cameras documenting the action, yellow police tape cordoning off streets, police cars everywhere, ambulances flashing with their lights red. Like all Canadians, they were horrified by what they were witnessing. I think as a Canadian you dont ever assume its going to happen here at home, Morgan Rielly said. Some were uncertain if one of the suspects had entered the hotel or would at some point. There were reports – ultimately proven false – that a shooting took place in the Rideau Centre, which is connected to the hotel and a mall that head coach, Randy Carlyle, was ambling through when word of evacuation blasted through the P.A. system. Basically the TV was out our window, Kadri recalled. There was news cameras all outside, yellow tape and ambulances and cop cars. What was on the TV was right outside our window so we kind of got a double-dose of it. It was a normal game-day until word came down around 2pm that the game that night with the Senators would be postponed. Players had ambled down for breakfast ahead of an 11am stretch – there was no planned morning skate – and saw the lobby of the hotel crowded with people. They figured there was a convention in town. Some, however – including Leo Komarov – heard the gunfire and were alarmed. Others werent quite sure what it was, construction perhaps. I wasnt sure, Rielly said, but then quickly after we heard from team management that there was a [dangerous] person out there and that we couldnt leave the hotel that was when we all clued in that it was pretty serious. Following the stretch were meetings scheduled for 11:30 with a meal to follow. Players were told then that the hotel and entire downtown area was in lockdown. They were urged to remain in their rooms, told to stay away from windows and advised not to use their Twitter accounts. We were preparing to play for a while, said Joffrey Lupul, who posted a tweet of shock at what was unfolding in the morning. In the back of my mind I didnt really think we were going to play. I mean we werent allowed to leave the hotel so it was hard to imagine playing at that point. I think that was, probably in Ottawa, the last thing on peoples mind. Gathered in Kadris hotel room, believing that things had settled some (though against instruction), players took peeks looking out the window. They saw the barricades, saw the officers huddled around one building or another and theorized on what was taking place. It was as though a movie or television show was unfolding in front of their eyes. Only it wasnt fiction, but reality in a country where events of this kind just dont happen. Texts and emails went out to nervous family members, weary wives and girlfriends. Players were told after the game was canceled to be ready to leave at any moment. It was a little frightening, Kadri said. Lupul, for one, wasnt nervous. Not terribly, he said. Probably not as much as we shouldve been. We were watching it unfold on TV and could see it a little bit from our hotel room. As a Canadian its something you dont expect to happen. It caught us off-guard. Carlyle hurried back to the hotel when the evacuation order came down. That was the safe haven for him and his team. It made us all aware that were all vulnerable in these situations, when youre just out in the street, in that type of forum it can happen to anybody, he said. Under strict lockdown to that point, the team ultimately made their way out of the hotel shortly after 4pm, thankful to get home safely. I think the people of Ottawa handled it well, said Rielly. The cops were great. Details were still being worked out early on Thursday afternoon, but the team plans to pay tribute to Cpl. Cirillo and Wednesdays tragic events prior to Saturdays game against the Bruins. The Leafs will make up Wednesdays game against the Senators on Sunday, Nov. 9.http://www.flyknitshoescheap.ca/nike-free-3-0-flyknit-orange-red-black-womens-running-shoes.html . The Raptors head to Milwaukee Monday night and will try to win for just the third time in 10 games while facing a Bucks team that can add a reserve point guard to a list of sidelined players. Air Max 90 Black And White . Watch the Senators vs. Penguins live tonight on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt.  The Senators led 2-0 early in the second period, but the Maple Leafs scored six of the games final seven goals to take the tilt in regulation. Toronto winger Phil Kessel capped his fifth career hat trick with the game-winning goal at 14:02 of the third period.SYDNEY - Two-time former champion Greg Chalmers took a one-stroke lead Friday at the Australian Open after a 5-under 66, while marquee attractions Rory McIlroy and Adam Scott werent far behind on a tough day for scoring.Chalmers had seven birdies in his second round to move to 5-under 137 after 36 holes.Defending champion McIlroy played in difficult afternoon conditions at The Australian Golf Club and he persevered for an up-and-down 69 to be in a group tied for second.Scott and American Jordan Spieth played together in calmer morning conditions and Spieth (72) was in a group tied for sixth, two behind. Scott, who moved from potential cut to contention with a 66, was three strokes behind.After two rounds, there were only 16 players under par.The group of four tied with McIlroy included American Conrad Shindler, who shot 68. Last year, Schindler donated all his $15,000 prize money from his first win as a pro on a U.S. developmental circuit to a relief fund for victims of tornadoes in Oklahoma.Chalmers, who the Australian Open in 1998 and 2011, said the swirling winds Friday made club selection difficult.It seemed to move around a little bit and change direction, Chalmers said. Sometimes you think you should be downwind and because youve turned in a certain direction youre actually into the wind. I think I changed clubs two or three times on shots.McIlroy only had only one par on the back nine — the 10th. The others, from the 11th, went birdie, bogey, bogey, eagle, birdie, bogey, birdie, birdie. He also birdied the ninth with about a 70-foot putt, but also plunked balls in the water on two holes for bogeys.I felt like I had an opportunity today to maybe shoot a good one and put a little bit of space between myself and thhe rest of the field, but it didnt really pan out that way, McIlroy said. http://www.flyknitshoescheap.ca/nike-flyknit-air-max-one-mens-womens-blue-black-purple-running-shoes.html. pieth had to call for a rules official on the par-3 fourth hole when a marshal stood on his ball, but neglected to tell him when he got to the green.Members of the gallery informed Spieth, and after he took a drop, the American fluffed his chip and missed his putt for par. On the way to the next hole, he angrily flung his ball into a creek.His round ended well with birdies on his last two holes, but that wasnt enough to make it feel like a good day for Spieth.It was a struggle, big-time struggle, Spieth said. I wasnt hitting it well. If I wasnt putting well I may have shot 45 on the back nine.Scott, starting on the 10th tee Friday, made quick amends for his opening-round 74 which left him in 82nd place and in danger of missing the cut. He eagled the par-5 14th and had two birdies to make the turn in 32, then birdied the par-4 sixth coming home.Yesterday I got off to a bad start, and I didnt scramble well when I had to and it started to get away from me, Scott said. Today a couple of good shots coming up 14 and I made an eagle and momentum is on your side.Scott said the reason scoring has been difficult is the mostly contoured greens at The Australian.I think the greens were certainly testing us, getting to understand the slopes on the greens and especially around the edges, Scott said. So getting it very close to the hole is not that easy. I think the greens have to be the defence because there is no rough.Players on Friday wore black ribbons on their hats or shirts in memory of cricketer Phillip Hughes, who died Thursday two days after being hit in the head by a ball during a match at the nearby Sydney Cricket Ground. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
