month back home after my fights

(SportsNetwork. Frank Robinson Jersey .com) - The red-hot Montreal Canadiens hope to post a fifth straight victory when they begin a four-game homestand with Saturdays matinee battle against the Washington Capitals. The Canadiens picked up a fourth consecutive win Thursday, edging the New York Rangers 1-0 at Madison Square Garden. All-Star goaltender Carey Price made 24 saves to record the win in his third shutout of the season. The victory pushed Montreal into a tie with Detroit for second place in the Atlantic and also leaves the Habs one point shy of Tampa Bay for the division lead. The Lightning recorded a 5-1 blowout win over the Red Wings on Thursday. Max Pacioretty scored the lone goal for the Habs on Thursday, tallying his team-leading 22nd goal of the season with 4:17 left in the third. Pacioretty snapped a shot from above the right circle through the legs of Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh and past Henrik Lundqvist for the games only score. The guys played very well, we got pretty lucky out there a few times. Thats part of the game, Price said. Montreal went 3-0 on a recent three-game homestand from Jan. 17-27 before picking up the road win in the Big Apple. The Habs own a 16-5-2 mark at the Bell Centre this season and they will continue this homestand tomorrow afternoon against Arizona. While Sundays starter is unknown for Montreal, Price will get the call today and he is 4-9-3 with a 3.24 goals against average in his career against Washington. Backup Dustin Tokarski notched a victory against the Caps in the only meeting between the clubs this season, making 29 saves in a 2-1 shootout win in D.C. on Oct. 9. Despite that setback, Washington has claimed 10 of the past 13 games in this series overall and has won seven in a row at the Bell Centre. Washington halted a four-game slide its last time out, posting a 4-0 win over visiting Pittsburgh on Wednesday. Alex Ovechkin scored twice and Braden Holtby posted his fifth shutout of the season to help the Caps down the Penguins. Ovechkin, a four-time winner of the Rocket Richard Trophy, has an NHL-best 29 goals this season. The Russian winger is one goal shy of becoming the fifth player in NHL history to record at least 30 goals in each of his first 10 seasons. The other four are Wayne Gretzky, Mike Bossy, Jari Kurri and Mike Gartner. Mike Green tallied a goal and an assist, Eric Fehr also scored and Nicklas Backstrom supplied two assists to help Washington pick up its first win since beating Philadelphia 1-0 on Jan. 14. We stayed diligent. We kept pushing the pace. We kept just hounding the puck, Washington head coach Barry Trotz said. I thought we just had more determination in our game. We actually just made sure we werent going to be outworked. Holtby made 27 saves to earn his 16th career shutout. He is 5-0-1 with a .98 goals against average in his career against Montreal, while backup Justin Peters is 0-2-0 with a 4.22 GAA in three lifetime appearances versus the Habs. Trotz could use both of his goaltenders this weekend, as Washington is scheduled to host the St. Louis Blues on Sunday.Manny Machado Green Jersey . Sam Carrick and Jerry DAmigo, with an empty-netter, also scored as part of a three-goal third period that broke the game open for Toronto. Josh Leivo, Spencer Aboott and Jerrod Smithson collected two assists apiece in front of an announced crowd of 6,399 at Ricoh Coliseum. Chris Davis Orange Jersey . Mike Babcock has turned to the Montreal Canadiens goalie over Roberto Luongo, who backed Canada to a gold medal in Vancouver in 2010, for Canadas final preliminary round game against the ailing Finns.The last time Rory MacDonald fought in Vancouver, things didnt exactly go as planned. The B.C. native immediately turned heads in a thrilling bout with future interim welterweight champ Carlos Condit at UFC 115 in 2010. Though MacDonald was ahead on the judges scorecards going into the final round, he succumbed to Condits relentless ground-and-pound with only seven seconds left on the clock. While he may have come out on the losing end that night, MacDonalds performance established him as a young fighter to watch. Over the past four years hes largely lived up to the hype, making the leap from prospect to contender. Now that hes poised to make his Vancouver return against Tyron Woodley in the co-main event of UFC 174 Saturday, MacDonald said he has grown both as a fighter and a person. "I was an inexperienced fighter at that point, it was a very big fight and I got a lot of response (from fans)," said MacDonald of his bout with Condit. "So it was a tough, but good learning experience for me as a martial artist and a UFC fighter to deal with that pressure and perform under it. "Since then Ive had a lot of big fights. Ive been able to deal with it great since then. So I see no difference going back there and fighting there again." Though MacDonald has since etched his spot in the welterweight title picture, consistency has been a problem. If he has struggled in one area, its been the frequency within which hes competed. Since joining the UFC roster in early 2010, hes managed only two fights per year due to a variety of injuries. MacDonald has attributed many of these to over-training and not knowing when to dial back his efforts. However, MacDonald appears to have found his groove as of late. His scrap with Woodley not only marks his second of 2014, but also his fourth in the past 12 months. MacDonald said hes finally hit thhe right balance. Adam Jones Orioles Jersey. "In a years time Ive been very busy and Ive been focused," MacDonald said. "My trainings been good. Ive been training very smart and been able to stay healthy. Obviously there are some injuries that are out of your control, but others are in your control and I think its just up to your experience as a martial artist. You know, growing up in your training and seeing what works for you. Im starting to figure out a rhythm that works for me. "I understand how to warm my body up, how to spar more technically and put less stress on my system. Its been a combination of a lot of things." MacDonald said a big piece of the puzzle has also been separating east coast from west coast. While in Montreal and New York, hes 100 - percent focused on training. However, after each fight, he spends time with family and friends back in B.C. The Tristar fighter said this allows him to recharge his batteries. "I take a month back home after my fights," MacDonald stated. "After all the hard training, I relax, but I also stay busy and stay active. I go into the gyms where I used to train with all the people that I know. I work with them — nothing crazy; just once a day. I spend my time there and enjoy it with family. It makes me happy. When I come out to Montreal and New York, I focus on my training and I feel energized." With his training formula firmly in place, MacDonald said he cant wait to put on a show in his home province. "It feels great," MacDonald began. "I love fighting in Canada and being in Vancouver is even better because after the fight Im right at home. I get to see my family and I dont have to fly anywhere. I also get a lot of recognition there from the fans. "Its going to be a very exciting night. Im very much looking forward to it." Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
