Thats what GSP has done very well

Gold has once again escaped the grasp of Team USA. Yaya Toure Jersey . The mens hockey team will now try to avoid leaving the Sochi Olympics without a medal at all as they battle Finland in the bronze medal game on Saturday. The United States squared off against Canada on Friday in a rematch of the 2010 gold medal game. And like those Vancouver Games, Canada got the better of the U.S. by handing the Americans a 1-0 setback. Jonathan Quick, who finishes the tournament today as the U.S. starting goaltender, was solid in net for the U.S. and posted 36 saves, but an offense that tied Finland for the most goals in the preliminary round (15) failed to get a shot by Canadian netminder Carey Price. Price ended with 31 saves to advance Canada into the gold medal game against Sweden. The only goal allowed by Quick came at 1:41 of the second period as Canadas Jay Bouwmeester unleashed a low, hard shot from the left point that was redirected into the net by Jamie Benn. The defeat dropped the U.S. to 1-4 in Olympic action against Canada since NHL players began competing in 1998. That includes an overtime setback four years ago in Vancouver. Looking to secure a chance at winning its first Olympic gold medal, Finland instead saw its offense struggle as well in a 2-1 setback to Sweden on Friday. Without goaltender Tuukka Rask due to illness, Finland got 23 stops from Kari Lehtonen. Olli Jokinen was the lone Finn to beat Swede goaltender Henrik Lundqvist, who made 25 saves. Rask will get the start in goal for the medal game. Jokinen was in the penalty box when Sweden netted its game-winning goal in the second period as Erik Karlsson scored on a one-time blast with 3:34 on the clock. The Finns had a power-play opportunity midway through the third, but failed to cash in and didnt have many good scoring chances the rest of the way. Finland is looking to secure an Olympic medal for the fifth time in the last six Olympic Games. The Finns won bronze in 2010 after taking silver four years prior. The U.S., which has not won gold since the 1980 Games in Lake Placid, won silver in 2002 and four years ago in Vancouver after being held without a medal in 2006. The last time the Americans won a bronze medal was in 1936. Sheyi Ojo Jersey .Brendan Gallagher and P.A. Parenteau each had two goals as the Canadiens chased goalie Tuukka Rask out of the game to win their home opener 6-4 over the Bruins on Thursday night. Lucas Leiva Jersey . Watch the Senators vs. Penguins live tonight on TSN at 7pm et/4pm pt.  The Senators led 2-0 early in the second period, but the Maple Leafs scored six of the games final seven goals to take the tilt in regulation. Toronto winger Phil Kessel capped his fifth career hat trick with the game-winning goal at 14:02 of the third period.TORONTO -- Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre says he has been obsessed by challenger Johny (Bigg Rigg) Hendricks ahead of their UFC 167 showdown. Hendricks not so much. "I dont go that route, because heres the thing: I cant do nothing about it today," Hendricks told The Canadian Press. "I cant do nothing about it tomorrow. The only time I have to do something about it is Nov. 16." Thats when the No. 1 challenger takes on St. Pierre at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. For Hendricks, theres nothing personal against the Canadian. Its business and his stock is on the rise. "Im not going to say nothing bad about him," said Hendricks. "I just think its time for my turn to be the new champ." St-Pierre (24-2) is listed as slightly more than a 2-1 favourite, more competitive odds than in most of the 32-year-old Montrealers title defences. GSP is currently riding an 11-fight win streak. But Hendricks (15-1) has one-punch knockout power backed up by NCAA championship-calibre wrestling. Hendricks divides his fight training into three parts: the actual fight camp, weight-cutting and then "the enjoyment, the fight." "The fight is the fun part," he said. The enjoyment has been short-lived for his opponents. Jon Fitch lasted 12 seconds. Amir Saollah exited after 29 seconds. Charlie Brenneman survived for 40 seconds. Martin (The Hitman) Kampmann lasted 46. T.J. Waldburger was stopped in 1:35. While the 30-year-old Hendricks has made his marks in the cage with his fists, he entered the sport as a stud wrestler. He was a four-time all-American and two-time NCAA champion at Oklahoma State where he went 103-12. "Thats what my father bred me for," he said of his wrestling success. "Thats what he prepared me for." After his collegiate wrestling career finished in 2006, Hendricks turned to MMA. About three months into his training, he discovered he was good at hitting people. But the technique wasnt there. "My striking was good, my power was good. I just didnt know the accuracy. Accuracy is everything." Hitting with maximum power is just a matter of connecting. But he soon learned that you can knock someone out with less power, providing the accuracy is there. And that effectively extends the threat of his fists. "If I can knoock you out at 80 per cent (power), then all of a sudden the skys the limit," he explained. Christian Benteke Jersey. "If I can do it at 80 per cent and be very active with it, it just means less power to use and the longer I can maintain my output." The success of Hendricks striking -- and the often short fights that ensue -- has meant he has not had to use his wrestling skills much. But he landed 12-of-15 takedown attempts against Carlos Condit last time out at UFC 158, blunting Condits kickboxing arsenal. Condit connected on just 42-of-145 significant strikes while Hendricks was good on 30 of 71. Hendricks expects St-Pierre to try to do what he did against Josh Koscheck, another acclaimed collegiate wrestler with power, at UFC 124 -- hurt him with a jab and then take him down. "Hes going to jab. And then hes going to jab. Then hes going to do some more jabbing," said Hendricks, an Oklahoma native who now makes his home in the Dallas area. "And then hes going to try to get me off balance, for sure. I think thats his main game plan. And to try to take me down as much as possible. Thats what Im preparing for." St-Pierre leads the UFC in significant strikes landed (1,153), takedowns (84), takedown accuracy (75 per cent) and ranks fourth in significant strike defence (75.1 per cent) and seventh in takedown defence (88.0 per cent), according to FightMetric. In comparison, Hendricks converts 50 per cent of his takedown attempts, stops 63 per cent of his opponents takedowns and has a significant strike defence rate of 58 per cent. St-Pierre is thought by many to possess the best MMA wrestling in the sport and Hendricks acknowledges the champion has adapted his wrestling skills to the fight world. "Watch how he hits his jab," Hendricks said. "Hell actually lean into it, four to five inches when he throws his jabs. He leans in hard, boom, boom. And whenever he does that, hell take half a step back and whenever he takes that half-step back, people miss. And whenever they miss, they start lunging in. When they start lunging in, hes got the eyes and the timing to take them off of it. "Thats what GSP has done very well." Hendricks has never been taken down more than twice in a UFC fight. St-Pierre has only been taken down twice in his last 10 UFC fights, by Koscheck. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
