wins with the Raiders from 1998-2001, from miao1234's blog

SAN JOSE - The Montreal Canadiens were unable to pick up a win in Thomas Vaneks debut, and the Habs hope to avoid a third loss in four games when they shoot for a rare win tonight in San Jose. Jarrod Dyson Royals Jersey . You can listen to all the action on TSN 690 Montreal beginning at 10pm et. The Canadiens acquired Vanek from the New York Islanders just before Wednesdays trade deadline and the Austrian winger played his first game with Montreal in Thursdays 5-2 loss at Phoenix. Vanek failed to register a point and had one shot on net in the setback. Vanek, a four-time 30-goal scorer, does have six goals in eight career games against the Sharks and hell try to lead Montreal to its first win in San Jose since a 3-2 overtime win on Nov. 23, 1999. The Habs have lost six in a row at the Shark Tank since that victory over 14 years ago and have dropped seven of the past 10 overall meetings in this series. Although the Canadiens have lost two of their last three games, the club is currently in playoff position in the Eastern Conference thanks to its status as the second-place team in the Atlantic Division. The top three clubs in each division earn an automatic bid to the postseason and the Canadiens are currently three points ahead of third-place Toronto in the Atlantic. The Canadiens were handed a 5-2 setback in the desert on Thursday, as Radim Vrbata scored two goals to help Phoenix snap a 14-game winless streak against the Canadiens. Andrei Markov and Alex Galchenyuk had the goals for Montreal. Peter Budaj allowed five goals on 23 shots in defeat. With No. 1 netminder Carey Price still on the shelf with a lower-body injury, the Habs could go with Budaj again tonight. Montreal has a 17-13-2 record as the guest this season and is capping a four- game road trip tonight. The Sharks, meanwhile, are 6-2-1 since the start of February and the second- place club in the Pacific Division is coming off Thursdays 5-3 home win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Brent Burns scored twice during San Joses four-goal third period as the Sharks downed the top team in the Eastern Conference, beating the Pens for the 11th straight time on home ice. Joe Pavelski assisted on three San Jose goals and Antti Niemi stopped 19 Pittsburgh shots. The Sharks trailed 2-0 after the first period, but cut that deficit to one by the end of 40 minutes before surging to the win in the final stanza. "We got physical and that just totally turned the game," said Sharks captain Joe Thornton. The Sharks are playing the third test of a four-game homestand on Saturday and will complete the stay at SAP Center with Tuesdays meeting against Toronto. San Jose boasts a phenomenal 23-4-4 record on home ice this season. Kansas City Royals Jersey . How can you explain the Philadelphia Eagles battling for an NFC East title and losing to Minnesota when Minnesota does not have either of its starting running backs? How can Dallas, who can only get into the playoffs but end up being dominated in the second half by Green Bay. Wade Davis Royals Jersey .ca presents its latest weekly power rankings for the 2013-14 Barclays Premier League season.ALAMEDA, Calif. - There have been several high-profile names talked about as potential candidates for the Oakland Raiders head coaching job in 2015. Running back Latavius Murray has his own: current interim coach Tony Sparano.A day after a 31-13 loss to Kansas City that dropped the Raiders to 2-12, Sparano received of vote of confidence from his players to come back next season and have the interim label removed from his title.That might be a longshot considering some of the candidates being discussed for the job.Still, Murray believes the Raiders would benefit from having Sparano back.Tonys done a great job and everybody in the locker room loves his approach, Murray said Monday. I feel hes definitely a players coach and we all love playing for him. Weve been coming up short on some games but that definitely doesnt change the mentality we have each week going forward.Oaklands only two wins this season have come under Sparanos watch and the team has remained fairly competitive despite long ago being eliminated from playoff contention.Since taking over as interim coach after the firing of Dennis Allen during the teams bye week, Sparanos teams have lost eight games but three have been by seven points or fewer.Sparano, the 53-year-old coach who previously helped orchestrate a 10-game turnaround with the Miami Dolphins in 2008, has consistently downplayed talk about his future with the Raiders.Listen, I am 100 per cent a glass half-full guy, Sparano said. Im only worried about, honestly, the Buffalo Bills right now. We just met with our players and got that (Chiefs) game out of our system. Well bounce back. I can only control the things that I can control. I can control what happens in our stadium this weekend and how our team appproaches this game. Wade Davis Blue Jersey. The Raiders host the Bills on Sunday before closing out the season on the road in Denver.Speculation on who will coach the Raiders in 2015 has been ongoing since owner Mark Davis fired Allen on Sept. 29.Numerous names have surfaced as potential candidates for the job, including current San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh was the Raiders quarterbacks coach from 2002-2003 and has openly expressed his fondness for late team owner Al Davis.Jon Gruden, the former Oakland coach who had a 38-26 record and two playoff wins with the Raiders from 1998-2001, has also been mentioned as a possibility for the job.But Harbaugh is still under contract with the 49ers and Gruden has a job working as a colour analyst for ESPN.Murray sees no reason to make a change anyway, saying Sparano has universal support in the Raiders locker room.Everyone that Im close with, we definitely like Tony, Murray said. I definitely dont mind playing for him at all. Hes a guy that can relate to us players a lot. Hes constantly motivating us. He reminds us that even though the season hasnt gone the way we want it to go, just to stay positive and try to look forward to that next week.That could be tough with only two games left.Theyll be playing without wide receiver Rod Streater, who has not been cleared medically and will be placed on season-ending injured reserve.Streater underwent surgery after breaking his foot in Week 3. The teams leading receiver in 2013, he had been working out with the team for the past few weeks as a roster exemption but his practice period expired Monday, forcing the Raiders to make a decision on what to do.___Online:AP NFL website: and Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale JerseysCheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
