through my immature times from wxy1123's blog

Sometimes statistics just dont mean much. Adidas ZX 700 Sneaker . The Jets were leading 2-0 going into the third period in Ottawa, yet all the stats favoured an Ottawa comeback.   The Senators lead the league in wins when trailing after two periods, had scored 66 third period goals to the Jets 27, the Jets had been outscored 12-1 in the third period in the last six games, and so on and so on. Goaltender Chris Mason and his teammates simply felt if they kept pressing, kept stopping the Ottawa attack in the neutral zone as they had for two periods, kept winning face offs and blocking shots, they would be fine. And, fine they were, as they snapped their three game losing streak, and at the same time snapped Ottawas four game winning streak with a 2-0 win.   Mason made 25 saves for his second shutout of the year and 23rd of his career.  It was the fifth team shutout of the year. Jim Slater opened the scoring 49 seconds into the game, redirecting a Chris Thorburn pass through the legs of Craig Anderson. The goal came after the Senators top line of Jason Spezza, Milan Michalik and Colin Greening applied some early pressure. "We tired them out in our end and then went down and scored. Good tactic," quipped Coach Claude Noel postgame. Toby Enstrom picked up his second goal of the year on a great pass from Kyle Wellwood  6:48 into the second period.  The Jets outshot the Senators 13-3 in the first, and 12-8 in the second before the Sens pressed in the third and outshot the Jets 14-10. Mason would have liked a little more work early. "I actually was getting cold because there was nothing happening in our end of the ice. We played a great road game." Mason has now won five of his last six games. Should he start in New Jersey, and that is a possibility, it would be his 299th NHL game. The loss was the Sens first in regulation in 10 games as they came into the game on an 8-0-1 run. Jets will look to win the second game of back to back situations for the first time this season as they travel to New Jersey. (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) "It was a good 60 minute game for us. We made them earn their ice," added Coach Noel. "We got a consistent effort from all 20 guys. It was a satisfying win. We had this black cloud over our third periods but we stayed with it." It would be tough to find a player that did not put in a solid effort. Some of the games numbers: Eric Fehr a season high 5 shots, Toby Enstrom a season high 6 shots. He also lead the team in ice time at 24:35. Nik Antropov won 7 of 10 face offs, Bryan Little won 11 of 19. As a team the Jets blocked 23 shots, Ron Hainsey with four. Jets were minus Blake Wheeler who was left at home for precautionary reasons after taking a puck to the throat area against New Jersey. Its hoped he will be ready for Thursdays home game against Buffalo. Still nothing definite on the return of Zach Bogosian or Dustin Byfuglien. Alexandre Burmistrov played on the line with Little and Evander Kane. Cheap Adidas Shoes Online .No terms were released but a raise was expected. The 27-year-old right back was a bargain at US$48,825 in 2014 and $46,500 in 2013. Adidas ZX Flux NZ . The fourth-year CFLer will miss Thursdays game against the Edmonton Eskimos, still bothered by his sore left knee.BOSTON - Kevin Garnett stole the ball from his friend and put the finishing touch on an emotional night with a layup that helped him and Paul Pierce become winners in their return to Boston. It started with pregame standing ovations for the leaders of the Celtics last championship team and ended with an 85-79 win for the Brooklyn Nets after Garnett picked off Rajon Rondos turnover and dribbled in slowly for an uncontested basket with 20 seconds left Sunday night. "I knew they needed a 3 at that point and I just played the passing lane," Garnett said. "I thought I was going to get caught, but I got it." That gave Brooklyn an 82-77 lead. It was a rare highlight for the returning stars in a game in which they fought to control their emotions while still trying to contribute to their current team. "I had lumps in my throat and I tried to focus as much as I could," Pierce said. "Im happy we got it over with and I can go back to playing basketball." Pierce, the second leading scorer in Celtics history, and Garnett scored just six points each, and Pierce missed eight of his 10 shots. But they received several standing ovations on the court where they won the teams 17th championship in 2008. They also were honoured in tributes shown on the video screen early in the game six months after a blockbuster trade sent them to Brooklyn. "It was, by far, the hardest day that I had to focus," said Garnett, a 19-year veteran. "Its a good homecoming." Andray Blatche scored 17 points and Alan Anderson and Andrei Kirilenko had 11 each as the Nets won for the 10th time in 11 games. The Celtics, losing for the 17th time in 20 games, were led by Brandon Bass with 17 points. Rondo had 13 points, eight rebounds and eight assists one night after having dinner with Pierce and Garnett. During the video tribute to Garnett in a timeout with 2:25 left in the first quarter, he stood near his bench with a white towel draped over his head. He smiled, pounded the left side of his chest and waved several times to the crowd. The tribute to Pierce at the end of the first quarter was longer and drew a louder ovation. He looked up at the video board above centre court with a sombre expression. The camera panned to him on the court showing him repeatedly mouthing the words, "thank you.. Adidas ZX 750 NZ. " Celtics coach Brad Stevens quickly gave his players instructions then let them watch the tributes. "It was the right thing to do," he said. "Not much in my life is bigger than the next possession, but that is." Pierce spent 15 seasons with the Celtics after they drafted him with the 10th pick in 1998. Garnett was obtained in a trade with Minnesota before the 2007-08 season and, with Pierce and Ray Allen, led Boston to their most recent championship. But the Celtics are in full rebuilding mode now and trailed 59-53 after three quarters then allowed the first six points of the fourth as the Nets led by 12. Boston cut the lead to 73-70 on a 3-pointer by Chris Johnson, playing on a 10-day contract, with 4:37 remaining. The Nets scored the next five points on a layup by Kirilenko, a free throw by Deron Williams and a jumper by Pierce. That made it 78-70. With the score 80-72, Boston cut the deficit to three on a field goal by Bass and a 3-pointer by Rondo, two of only five current Celtics who played with Pierce and Garnett last season. "We got caught up in (their return)," Bass said, "but for the most part we had a job to do." Joe Johnson then missed his shot and Rondo rebounded, giving Boston a chance to tie with a 3-pointer. He moved the ball upcourt only to lose it to Garnett, who went in for Brooklyns final field goal. "Hes done it all year for us defensively," Nets coach Jason Kidd said. "Hes always in the right place at the right time." Pierce scored his first two points of the game on free throws 1:08 into the third quarter then hit his first field goal, a 16-foot jumper that capped a 10-0 Nets run 2:51 into the period. "It was just a special thing for me," Pierce said, "through my bad times, through my immature times, through my growing up, becoming a man for this city and winning a championship, everybody sticking with me. I would just like to tell them, thank you. " NOTES: The crowd gave Pierce and Garnett a standing ovation when they took the court for pregame warm-ups and when they were the last two Nets starters introduced. ... Garnett won the opening tip against Bass and got the ball back to Pierce. ... The Celtics recalled centre Vitor Faverani from the Maine Red Claws of the NBDL.
