The injury riddled Penguins have from mary123's blog

NEWARK, N. Brad Evans USA Jersey .J. -- Ray Emery gave up four goals on 15 shots in 22:47 of playing time, and even had a fight Friday against Washington. On Saturday against New Jersey, he showed a different kind of fight. Emery stopped all 14 shots he faced, leading the Flyers past the Devils 1-0 in perhaps last-place Philadelphias most complete effort of the season. "A night like tonight, its not that hard to stay focused after a game like last night," said Emery, who participated in a line brawl between the Flyers and Capitals, headlined by him fighting an unwilling Braden Holtby in the 7-0 loss. "You challenge yourself and you could see it in the whole team that we were embarrassed. "We were gonna show how much we wanted to play tonight." The Flyers, coming off easily their worst game of the season, indeed put together a gutsy effort that was enough to beat a New Jersey team that hadnt played since Tuesday. "I knew the guys would be ready to go," Flyers coach Craig Berube said. "They were obviously very frustrated and upset at the game against Washington. I knew that the focus was there and (they) played a strong game." Philadelphia recorded just its fourth win of the season, and perhaps turned a corner at the Prudential Center, of all places, a building in which the Flyers had failed to get a victory in the past six tries. "Its been a tough building for us to come in and play," Berube said. "I thought we finally had the patience to beat them in a game. Thats basically what it boils down to." On Friday, Emery received the highest total of 29 penalty minutes. He was charged with leaving the goal crease, instigating a fight, and fighting. He was also ejected from the game. In the melee, a total of 114 penalty minutes were handed out. "Theres a reason that stuff happens last night in the game. They care," Berube said. "Theyre mad and theyre frustrated. I know what theyre feeling. Ive been there. I knew theyd be ready." The Flyers scored the lone goal on a deflection by Brayden Schenn, who altered a shot from Andrej Meszaros, to beat New Jerseys Martin Brodeur at 14:29 of the first period. "Its just important to have a bounce-back effort after last night. It really was a complete team game from start to finish," Emery said. "The most encouraging thing was the third period where we really took it to them. They didnt get anything. They got two shots. We needed that after last night." Emery, in his second stint with the Flyers, posted his 15th career shutout. "Hes been a winner and a battler his whole life," Berube added. "I knew hed have a good game." The Devils simply didnt get the effort they wanted, going 0-for-5 on the power play. New Jersey had just three shots with the man advantage. "We just didnt play very well," New Jerseys Jaromir Jagr said. "We didnt play good enough to win the game, and we didnt have to play extra good (to win)." New Jersey was short two forwards, as Patrik Elias (upper body) and Travis Zajac (ankle) were late scratches. "We had some power plays," Jagr said, "(but) we had to change it because we missed two guys right before the game." New Jersey will be in Minnesota on Sunday, and Zajac and Elias will not be with the team. Brodeur -- who made his third consecutive start in the loss and finished with 20 saves -- said he will not play vs. the Wild. "I thought Marty was good, he gave us a chance to win," Devils coach Peter DeBoer said. "I thought, defensively, we were fine. We were good enough to win. "It was the other end of the ice that didnt get the job done." NOTES: The NHL did not suspend Emery for his actions in Fridays brawl. ... Devils F Mattias Tedenby played in place of Elias. . The Flyers announced that F Steve Downie would be released from the hospital Sunday. Downie is out indefinitely with a concussion. .

New Jersey G Keith Kinkaid backed up Brodeur, as Cory Schneider continues his stint on the IR with a lower-body injury.

McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. http://www.soccerusonline.com/world-cup-geoff-cameron-football-jersey/ . -- The plastic that was taped across the lockers in Oaklands clubhouse came down and the champagne that was on ice went back into the cooler.PITTSBURGH -- Pittsburgh spent four games last June futilely flailing away at Tuukka Rask as the Boston goalie shoved the Penguins out of the Eastern Conference finals one remarkable save at a time. Any real chance at payback wont come until the playoff. Still, Pittsburgh knows its taut 3-2 win over the Bruins on Wednesday night is a pretty good place to start laying the groundwork. "They are a very good defensive team," Penguins forward Brandon Sutter said. "To get chances and capitalize on them is huge. Thats a big building block for us." Sutter and Jussi Jokinen scored 6:58 apart in the third period and the Penguins held on. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 21 shots for Pittsburgh, including a sliding save on David Krejci just before the final horn. Chris Kunitz picked up his sixth goal of the season for the Penguins while Sidney Crosbys assist pushed his points total to an NHL-high 21. "We played the right way and we were the better team tonight," Jokinen said. "It kind of felt like a playoff game, a little bit those same matchups like last spring. Lots of hitting, lots of battles." Battles the Penguins won. Then again, thats what happens this time of year. Pittsburgh is 9-1 in its last 10 regular-season games against Boston. Patrice Bergeron and Jarome Iginla scored for the Bruins. Rask finished with 28 saves, but couldnt stop Boston from dropping a road game for the first time this season. "We didnt play to our identity," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "We didnt play a heavy game for two periods tonight. We had to play three periods like we did in the third and that wasnt the case." The meeting between the teams was the first since Bostons emphatic four-game sweep in the Eastern Conference finals, when the Bruins suffocated the NHLs highest scoring team into submission. The Penguins scored only twice in nearly 14 periods of hockey and never led at any point, undone by Bostons defence and a near flawless performance by Rask, who stopped 134 of 136 shots in the series. Nearly five months later, little has changed. "I think the intensity and the atmosphere, not quite sure it was April and May and Junee, but it was certainly a good night for a Wednesday night rivalry game in October," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. David Bingham USA Jersey. Kunitz gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead in the second period when he collected a shot from teammate Kris Letang with his chest then backhanded by Rask with his back to the net. The power-play goal was the fifth given up by the Bruins in their last seven penalty kills. Bergeron tied it 1:05 into the third period with a tricky deflection between his legs over Fleurys shoulder. The fun was just starting. Sutter took a pass from Pascal Dupuis and raced in on Rask, wristing a shot over the goalies shoulder for his first regular-season goal since April. "He leaned on it and I went down and then he shot it," Rask said. "I told him good shot." Jokinen followed with 3:02 remaining when he forced a turnover high in Bostons zone and broke in on Rask, using a screen to whisk the puck past Rasks stick for his sixth goal. The Penguins ended up needing the cushion. Iginlas slap shot from the point zipped by Fleury with 1:43 left and Boston spent the final 90 seconds buzzing the Pittsburgh net but couldnt tie it up. "We didnt give too many chances but we couldnt stop them," Rask said. "Thats just about it. Weve got to stop giving up these third-period goals." The injury riddled Penguins have tweaked their formula a bit since June, trying to play a bit more responsibly on their end of the ice while still relying on Crosby and Evgeni Malkin to carry the offence. Bostons roster underwent a slightly more aggressive overhaul, including the signing of Iginla. He spent two months with the Penguins last spring in search of his first Stanley Cup title after more than 15 years in Calgary. He had five goals and six assists in 13 regular-season games with Pittsburgh and had four more goals in the playoffs but disappeared against the Bruins, though he was hardly alone. Iginlas return barely caused a stir. There was no video tribute or hand from the crowd. Only when he was knocked to the ice by Malkin and Kris Letang to end the first period -- and again dropped by Malkin in the second -- did a faint level of disapproval arise. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Auston Matthews Jersey ' ' '
