a game in which they trailed by 10 points

Hey, Florida Panthers. Nike Air Max Thea Damen . It’s time to say bye-bye. That’s right, take your empty building and your ugly uniforms and go away. You’re embarrassing us, really. You make the National Hockey League look like a joke. 11,419 for your season opener. 7,311 for your Monday night game against Ottawa. One of our commentators at that game who was sitting in the press box said he could hear a fan in the crowd sneeze. Sorry, there was no crowd. A fan surrounded by empty seats. And here’s the best part about the attendance at your first couple of home games this season. The reaction from those who were actually there is that the number of fans in the building was far less than what was announced. We know that earlier this year you said you were no longer going to give away tickets; that only people who pay money will be allowed to attend games. A smart concept that is, and certainly one that has worked pretty well in other cities. But it’s too little, too late Florida. You can’t charge people for things you used to give away or you’ll end up with what you’ve got -- crowds smaller than they get for high school football in your part of the world. To be honest, if you went away tomorrow, we wouldn’t miss you at all. No one looks forward to you coming to their building. Except for the fact you’re usually an easy mark for two points. Look, this recent attendance thing is really just the tip of the iceberg with what’s wrong about you. Take your track record on the ice. It makes the Toronto Maple Leafs look a model for how to build a team. In your 20 seasons leading up to this one, you’ve reached the playoffs exactly four times. I know, you made the Stanley Cup final back in 1996 – but the other three times? Three first round exits. You’ve been to the post-season once in the past 14 seasons. Gerard Gallant is your 13th head coaches in 21 seasons. Let that sink in, 13 head coaches in 21 seasons. They say teams that bottom-out are destined to become great in the NHL. Except you, Florida. You’ve had either the first, second or third overall pick of the draft in four of the past five seasons. You’ve picked thirteen times in the top 10 in 21 seasons, nine times in the Top 5. How in the world have you been so consistently awful? Even the Edmonton Oilers are amazed you can’t win with that. I mean if you were moved to Quebec City tomorrow and wiped from our memories, what would we miss? You’re all-time leader in games played is Stephen Weiss. You’re all-time goal-scoring leader? Olli Jokinen. The thing you’re best remembered for is helping to usher in the widespread use of the neutral zone trap once your mediocre roster rode that sleepy strategy all the way to the final in ‘96. You’re only players who reached the Hall of Fame are guys who played their best hockey for northern teams, and then moved to Florida to play out their final years. Kind of like most people in Southern Florida. Sure, general manager Dale Talon is a quality hockey man, but how successful is anyone going to be with an organization that makes the owners’ son – with zero qualified experience -- its vice-president of hockey operations. Look, we all remember back in 1992 when the NHL awarded the Florida Panthers franchise to Wayne Huizinga and everyone was excited about linking up with a guy whose Bluckbuster Video business was one of the leading entertainment companies in North America. Well, guess what? Huizinga is long gone and Blockbuster Video doesn’t exist anymore. Maybe it was no coincidence that you were named after an endangered species. Maybe its simply time you became extinct. Nike Free 5.0 V4 Damen . He made the comment at a media availability Saturday prior to Game 2 of the Boston-Montreal playoff series when a Quebec reporter said there is sentiment in Quebec that the NHL looks more favourably on Seattle than Quebec City when it comes to future expansion.Nike Air force 1 Low Damen . - Even when his legs are shot and his whole body is exhausted, Kobe Bryant can figure out ways to will the Los Angeles Lakers to victories. COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Everybody knows what Nik Stauskas has done this season. But he had a lot of help from Michigans freshmen in leading the way to yet another big road win. Stauskas scored 15 points and freshmen Derrick Walton III and Zak Irvin each had a big game to power the 15th-ranked Wolverines to a 70-60 victory over No. 22 Ohio State on Tuesday night. "Obviously, it was a hostile arena," senior forward Jordan Morgan said. "Youve got to get comfortable with pressure that (the Buckeyes) are going to put on you. Theyre going to challenge you to make big plays and I think our freshmen stepped up and did it." Walton scored 13 points, added a career-high 10 rebounds and was just one behind his previous best in assists with six. Irvin came off the bench to give the Wolverines (18-6, 10-2 Big Ten) a lift. He scored 10 points, hitting both of his 3-pointers and adding a solid defensive effort. Michigan coach John Beilein was pleased with just about everybody in blue, but had particular praise set aside for his first-year players. "Walton had a great game, with 10 rebounds and controlling the tempo," he said. Of Irvin, he added, "Hes been a typical freshman in some ways, but the young man can make a shot." The victory ended a nine-game skid over the last 11 years in Columbus for the Wolverines, who came into the game tied for the top spot in the conference with Michigan State. "We love getting road wins. Thats one of the hardest things to do in this conference," said Morgan, who had eight rebounds -- six on the offensive glass -- and contributed six points. "Any time you can get one of those its big. Obviously, this game means a lot to a lot of people. For us to come into this environment and get this win is big." LaQuinton Ross had 24 points and Lenzelle Smith Jr. 13 for Ohio State (19-6, 6-6), which had a three-game winning streak snapped. The Buckeyes hadnt lost to their archrivals on their home court since a 61-50 setback on Jan. 15, 2003. The Wolverines were coming off an 85-67 loss at No. 17 Iowa on Saturday and had played three road games in 10 days and fivee games total over the last 13. Nike Air Max Billig. But they had more energy in the second half -- outscoring Ohio State 44-30 -- to pull out a game in which they trailed by 10 points in the opening 20 minutes. The Buckeyes led by eight early in the second half, but that cushion disappeared when Michigan scored on four straight possessions, including a dunk by Jon Horford off Waltons assist, a 3 by Irvin, Columbus native Caris LeVerts steal and end-to-end layup, and two foul shots by Stauskas. That gave the Wolverines their first lead since their first basket at 44-43. The surge was part of a 12-0 run that turned the game around. Stauskas picked up a basket on a goaltending call before Walton slashed through the lane and was fouled while spinning in a layup, completing the three-point play to make it 49-43 with 9:15 left. "When it came down to it, they gave the ball to Walton down the stretch and let him make plays," said Buckeyes defensive whiz Aaron Craft. Ohio State got as close as 51-50 before Morgan scored inside and then, on the next trip down the floor, kept the ball alive on an offensive rebound, leading to a 3 by Stauskas. Shannon Scotts steal led to a dunk by Buckeyes teammate Sam Thompson, and Michigan was hanging on, 56-52, with 3:24 left. But LeVert drove the lane and flicked a pass to the right corner to Glenn Robinson III, who hit a 3 with 2:45 left to push the lead to 59-52. "Robinsons 3 from the corner was huge," said Ohio State coach Thad Matta, who fell to 17-5 against Michigan. After Craft airballed a 3 at the other end, Walton was fouled on a 3 with 1:54 left and calmly made all three to push the lead to 10. The Buckeyes didnt threaten again. "Today we werent the tougher team down the stretch," Craft said. It was the only regular-season meeting between the longtime rivals this season, due to the Big Tens 18-game, rotating schedule. Thats OK with Beilein. "It was like a Final Four game," he said of the atmosphere, which included a roaring crowd of 18,809. "It was loud. And it had two of the really good programs in the Big Ten going at it." NFL Jerseys Cheap China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
