BOSTON - The Super Bowl celebration for New Englanders and their beloved Patriots will have to wait another day as Boston continues to get battered by heavy snow.Nike Free 5.0 Gray Mens .Mayor Marty Walsh said the city will postpone a planned victory parade through downtown until Wednesday.He said the city and team both agreed to hold off on the parade because of Mondays snowstorm, which dumped more than a foot of fresh snow in the Boston area, making commutes treacherous.We thank everyone for their flexibility and patience during the planning of this parade and we look forward to celebrating with Patriots fans during better weather on Wednesday, Walsh said in a joint statement with the team.The city had announced earlier that the parade would take place Tuesday. But with weather continuing to worsen, Boston public schools preemptively cancelled Tuesday classes, the fifth snow day in the past week. A decision to cancel the parade followed shortly after.Boston has seen a record 34.2 inches of snow over seven days, according to the National Weather Service. The previous seven-day record was 31.2 inches in January 1996.Following their 28-24 victory over the defending champion Seattle Seahawks in Arizona, the Patriots flew back to Massachusetts as scores of flights in and out of Bostons Logan International Airport were cancelled or delayed Monday.The latest snowstorm didnt stop New Englanders from basking in the glow of their teams fourth Super Bowl victory.Todd Penney, of Coventry, Connecticut, was still recovering from a heady night of celebrating as he prepared for work Monday morning as a town engineer.My voice is very hoarse from screaming at the TV. I was all in last night, he said. It will be a lot more fun for me to snowblow this morning after the Patriots win than if they would have lost, thats for sure.Other fans recounted tense moments from the rollercoaster victory.It was an exciting game, a nail-biter to the end. You dont get to see games like that very often, said George Vemis, as he cleared the sidewalk in front of his variety store in Whitman, south of Boston.Cheryl Happeny, a business analyst from Whitman, said the victory is especially satisfying because so many people outside of New England have been calling the team cheaters since the scandal over underinflated footballs in the Patriots winning game over the Indianapolis Colts erupted.It was a sweet victory, she said. I dont think it will quiet the critics. Im waiting for it to heat up again. Everyone hates the Patriots because were breaking so many records. ...Were like the Yankees of the NFL.At the Modells Sporting Goods in Cambridge, devoted fans trickled in Monday morning as thick fluffy clumps of snow fell, grabbing commemorative T-shirts and hats by the armful.Its an early Valentines gift. Im treating, said Karen Rudgis of Cambridge, who was buying shirts for her husband and two grown children.Mike Kelley, who works next door at Staples, was buying T-shirts and hats for his daughter, brother-in-law and himself. Its an expensive day today, he said. Ive already spent $100, and Im already planning to spend $100 more.Modells employees said the biggest sellers so far were the white Super Bowl champion baseball caps the team wore Sunday for the locker room celebration.Itd be a lot different if there wasnt a blizzard right now. Later tonight, I would think, it would get busy, said Jennifer Walcott, who had been among a number of staffers brought in from the stores Hamden, Connecticut, location to help open up the Cambridge store promptly at 6 a.m. Monday.From Boston to western Massachusetts, police reported that Patriots fans celebrated raucously but without mayhem late Sunday and into Monday.In Boston, where schools were closed but subways were running Monday, Walsh held court in City Hall, reflecting on Sundays win and sketching out the upcoming celebration.The championship parade, now scheduled to start at 11 a.m. Wednesday, will begin at the Hynes Convention Center. A fleet of 25 amphibious duck boats resembling those used during World War II — a staple of championship parades in Boston — will carry the team along Boylston Street, past the Common and onto City Hall.Well make sure the duck boats get through the snow, Walsh said. Well probably have plows in front of them, behind them, beside then, next to them, under them.___Associated Press writers Mark Pratt and Steve LeBlanc in Boston, Denise Lavoie in Whitman, Mass., Pat Eaton-Robb in Coventry, Conn., and Steve Singer in Hartford, Conn., contributed to this report. Nike Free 5.0 Mens Au .

This best-of-seven series between the Rangers and Capitals was tied at 2-2 heading into Mondays Game 5 in New York. Nike Free Tr 5 Flyknit Australia .J. - The New York Jets could be down two of their top receivers when they take on the San Diego Chargers on Sunday.Jonathan Bernier paying immediate dividends for Toronto, the Blue Jackets top line is firing, Nathan Gerbe, Anton Khudobin, Jakob Silverberg and more in Scott Cullens latest blog. 1. When the Toronto Maple Leafs acquired G Jonathan Bernier from the Los Angeles Kings, the immediate reaction in many circles was, why? While there was little doubt that Bernier was a highly-touted goaltending prospect who was blocked by Jonathan Quick in L.A., James Reimer was coming off a strong season, one in which his .924 save percentage played a big part in the Maple Leafs making the playoffs. With the Maple Leafs having other needs -- improving their defence and finding a top-line centre among them -- it wasnt easy to reconcile the decision to give up two inexpensive assets (Matt Frattin and Ben Scrivens) as well as cap space, in order to acquire another goaltender. That it was Bernier wasnt nearly so much the concern. Then, as the Maple Leafs brass talked about having two good goaltenders and competition bringing out the best in them, they also signed Bernier to a two-year contract extension that comes with a cap hit of $2.9-million per season. With Reimer going into the last year of his deal, at $1.8-million, it didnt take a major reach to see a bigger commitment to the new goaltender. All those misgivings aside, the early returns from Bernier have been sensational. Hes stopped 113 of 116 shots in four games, his .974 save percentage leading the league. Of course this is a crazy small sample but, given the investment the Leafs made to acquire Bernier, its heartening that hes performed well and performing well has lifted him into the lead if there is still a goaltending competition in Toronto. Playing behind a Toronto team that gives up a lot of shots -- ranking 27th with 34.8 shots against per game -- Bernier could be busy, but if hes going to be play more than 50 games for the Leafs this season, he has a chance to provide value for the Leafs and fantasy owners alike. 2. When the Columbus Blue Jackets broke camp this year, rookie Boone Jenner was slotted on the left side of the top line alongside Brandon Dubinsky and Marian Gaborik. That didnt last long, as Jenner was bumped by Cam Atkinson, and now the Blue Jackets have a rather formidable trio at the top of the depth chart. They have combined for 11 points in three games and all three have strong possession numbers early in the season, with a Corsi percentage of 54% or better. It doesnt guarantee anything, but is at least a positive indication that this line could generate chances. Gaborik isnt sneaking up on anyone. Even though hes coming off a down season, hes a three-time 40-goal scorer, a known commodity. Dubinsky was a bit of a fantasy sleeper coming into the year because he is a two-time 20-goal scorer who has also had more than 100 penalty minutes three times. With an opportunity to play big minutes in Columbus, with a scorer like Gaborik, it was feasible to see value in Dubinsky. Atkinson adds another scorer to the mix. Coming into the year, he had 16 goals and 32 points in 62 career games, but also had 49 goals in 89 AHL games and 61 goals in 81 games over his last two seasons at Boston College. Hes small, but Atkinson has shown he can put the puck in the net and looks like hes getting a nice opportunity to do so with some skilled linemates in Columbus. 3. Sticking with small Boston College snipers, Nathan Gerbe is getting a prime opportunity in Carolina, playing more than 18 minutes per game and skating on the second line with Jordan Staal and Patrick Dwyer. Gerbe was mostly an afterthought in Buffalo, topping out at 31 points in 64 games in 2010-2011 before bottoming out with 10 points in 42 games last year, but has a track record as an offensive performer. He had 94 points in 101 AHL games after scoring 115 points in 84 games over his last two years at Boston College. Of course it would be easy to dismiss Gerbes three goals in four games as a small-sample fluke, what makes it attention-worthy is that Gerbe has 21 shots on goal in those four games. His 5.25 shots per game is fifth-best in the league to this point. This isnt to suggest that Gerbe is a sure thing, but he has the opportunity and pedigree to be a productive offensive player. 4. Now, with Gerbe playing a big role, its also noteworthy that Jeff Skinner is playing a career-low 15:17 per game. All is not lost with Skinner, however, as he does have five assists and has 14 shots in four games. His 13.7 shots per 60 minutes ranks 15th in the league. (Gerbe ranks second with 17.5.) With that kind of production, Skinners role ought to increase and his scoring will follow. 5. One more note on the Hurricanes. G Anton Khudobin has stopped 47 of 50 shots in two starts, prompting some question of whether or not he could supplant Cam Ward as the starter. Khuudobin does have a . Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 31. 934 save percentage in 23 career NHL games, so that is enticing, but he also has a .912 save percentage in 156 career AHL games, and had a .912 save percentage in the KHL during the lockout last year. Those numbers suggest that the .934 NHL mark isnt going to last. At the same time, Ward had a .917 save percentage from 2008-2009 through 2012-2013, which ranked ninth among goaltenders with at least 150 NHL games. To give up on Ward after a few games into this season would be a very quick hook. Khudobin can close the gap and the longer he plays well and Ward plays poorly, the scales will change but, right now, its hard to envision Ward getting bumped aside for a guy who is just two years younger yet has played 410 fewer NHL games. 6. Lightning C Steven Stamkos connected for a hat trick against Florida (that probably wont be the last time someone goes for three against the Panthers this year), his first three goals of the season. Since the start of the 2009-2010 season, Stamkos has 188 goals, 31 more than Alex Ovechkin, who ranks second and 57 more than Patrick Marleau, who ranks third. Stamkos and Martin St. Louis skated with Ryan Malone at even strength against the Panthers. Always worth paying attention to who rides shotgun on that line. 7. With Tim Thomas nursing a groin injury, Jacob Markstrom has a chance to reclaim the net in Florida, and he stopped all 25 shots he faced in relief of Thomas on Tuesday, but allowing 18 goals on 24 shots against Tampa Bay isnt going to re-kindle a goalie competition. 8. Much was made of the Red Wings decision to add veteran free agents Daniel Alfredsson and Stephen Weiss in the offseason, with the idea that they could form the nucleus of the second line, along with veteran winger Johan Franzen. Its early, but the returns havent been great, as the trio combined to go minus-10 against Phoenix Thursday and they have combined for a total of four points in four games. 9. Ducks RW Jakob Silfverberg arrived in SoCal with a bit of pressure, as the centrepiece of a deal that saw Bobby Ryan go to Ottawa, but hes doing his part, scoring four goals and five points in his first four games with the Ducks. Silfverberg has 16 shots on goal (4.0 per game) and is skating with Mathieu Perreault and Teemu Selanne on the Ducks second line. Those may not be ideal linemates for continued production, but Silfverberg is going to have offensive potential that makes him interesting. 10. In Vancouvers 4-1 loss to San Jose Thursday, no Canucks skater played more than...Mike Santorelli. The journeyman forward skated a career-high 23:42 against the Sharks and has been spending the bulk of his time in the high-rent district on the wing with the Sedin Twins. Santorelli, who scored a career-best 20 goals and 41 points in 82 games for Florida in 2010-2011, has four goals in five games this season. Hes scored 176 points in 214 career AHL games (59 points in 208 NHL games entering this season), so Santorelli isnt altogether unfamiliar with what he needs to do in the offensive zone. Anyone playing with the Sedins -- from Anson Carter to Trent Klatt to Taylor Pyatt to Alex Burrows and all fill-ins in between -- has some appeal, but its too soon to get excited about Santorelli. See if hes still doing this in a week or two weeks, if hes not bumped by Zack Kassian or Burrows, and then well have a better idea if Santorelli can score consistently at the NHL level. FIRST NHL GAMES David Broll, LW, Toronto - A sixth-round pick of the Leafs in 2011, Broll is a burly winger who had 54 points in 67 games with Sault Ste. Marie (OHL) last season. Hes a banger, but not a thug and got a nice opportunity to skate on a line with Joffrey Lupul and Nazem Kadri in his debut. Josh Leivo, RW, Toronto - Taken in the third round by the Leafs in 2011, Leivo is a more skilled forward, who scored 73 points in 63 OHL Games last season. He played with Dave Bolland and Mason Raymond in his first game. CHIRPING "We never start with the puck. We chased pretty much the whole night and never created very much through the neutral zone." - Jets coach Claude Noel, after Winnipeg registered 15 shots on goal in a loss to Minnesota. "I sometimes pinch myself and wonder if I need to check his birth certificate, the poise he is showing for an 18-year-old kid. He is having fun, he is bringing passion, he is bringing excitement and hes learning. He is a pretty special kid." - Flames coach Bob Hartley, on rookie C Sean Monahan. "Tough training camp, tough start ot the year. Probably could have done more work this summer." - Darryl Sutter on Kings D Slava Voynov.
