GLENDALE, Ariz. Darren ODay Orioles Jersey . – Randy Carlyle could only sigh at the awful manner in which his team started in the Arizona desert. Turtle start, he said regretfully afterward, it was slower than slow. The Maple Leafs couldnt overcome those lousy first 20 minutes, their comeback attempt coming up just short in Glendale, their three-game win streak put to bed on a warm Tuesday night. Its a bad start, said Dion Phaneuf after the 3-2 loss to Arizona, who had won just twice in the previous eight games. Its unacceptable to start that way. When you have a start like that it puts you behind the eight-ball and we were playing catch-up all night. Toronto mustered a measly three shots in that first frame. They turned pucks over with uneasy regularity. They failed to complete passes of any kind, the rock bouncing everywhere on Gila River Arenas choppy ice. They failed to skate with any urgency. They just werent sharp in any regard and it was all too obvious. Even an early 5-on-3 advantage did little to shake the disjointedness. The Leafs couldnt even muster a shot with more than a minutes worth of advantage. They dropped to 1-5-1 this season when failing to score first – a perfect 5-0-0, conversely, when managing the first goal. No explanation for that one other than the fact that we just seemed like we were in neutral and they were in third gear, Carlyle said. Our execution level was nowhere near where it needed to be. The Coyotes, who entered the night yielding a league-worst of nearly four goals per game, took advantage of that sloppy execution. They capitalized when Jake Gardiner flubbed a pass behind the Toronto goal, adding a second marker five minutes later on some disorderly defensive zone coverage. They were sharper, said James van Riemsdyk, who played more than 25 minutes in defeat. We were a little bit loose with the puck and loose in our systems. Hoping to spark some kind of change after watching the early malaise, Carlyle juggled his line combinations and defence pairings in the second, notably reuniting Phil Kessel with van Riemsdyk and Tyler Bozak while flipping Gardiner onto the left side of Roman Polak. And he got the desired pushback. Phaneuf and Cody Franson both scored power-play goals, but that was it for the Leafs. The balloon of a three-game win streak was popped just like that. A return to inconsistency. To us as a coaching staff we felt that this was a game that we could give ourselves the best chance to win with the type of game that weve been playing, Carlyle said. We played it for 35 minutes tonight, maybe 35 minutes. We werent very good in the first period and it cost us. Five Points 1. Goalie Decisions When training camp opened Carlyle made it clear, again, that he had no defined No. 1. Instead, he said, a duo would compete to own the position. You laugh at me and you say hes full of this, hes full of that, said Carlyle. [But] the reality is if you go to every team you have to have somebody thats going to emerge and be your guy. And so despite Jonathan Bernier winning three of his past four starts with a .930 save percentage, Carlyle opted to ride what he deemed the hotter hand – seemingly changing his plan of starting Bernier in doing so. James Reimers third period performance against Chicago over the weekend was enough to sway his decision. You have some sort of an idea of what youd like to do, Carlyle said before the game against Phoenix, but if people perform to a high level its hard not to go back to them. It was a bold decision in many ways, one that risks ruffling Berniers feathers. Reimer certainly performed admirably on Saturday – making 26 saves in the third period alone – but Bernier did nothing in his previous starts not to earn the next look after the back-to-back – yielding one goal on 39 total shots in wins over Buffalo and Columbus. Not only had he been playing well recently, but happened to win the job a year ago and then, probably to some frustration, was asked to win it all over again this fall. Its up to Randy I guess, Bernier said early this season when questioned on being the teams No. 1. To me, Im not going to say Im the No. 1 [because] if I play 20 games this year then I look like a fool right? So it just depends on Randy, how much he wants to play me, how much he wants to play [Reimer]. But obviously it comes from the head coach. If the head coach says Ive got my No. 1 guy thats when you feel you are. Like any coach, Carlyle did what he felt would give his team the best chance to win against Arizona. And it may not matter in the end if Bernier is perturbed for a day or two, but in opting for Reimer on Tuesday, Carlyle risks stoking a fire in a market that craves goalie controversy. 2. Hard to Fathom The Leafs had an early opportunity to right their stunted start with two Coyotes wedged in the penalty box in the opening minutes of the first frame. But they mustered nothing, not even a single shot at Mike Smith. Its hard to fathom that we were so inept with it at that time, Carlyle said. We couldnt make two passes and we had one player [Franson] fall down twice on it. Those are the things that [cause you to think] whats going on out there? and thats when youre helpless. The Leafs have yet to score with a 5-on-3 advantage this season. 3. Reimers Follow-Up Not quite as sharp as three days earlier, Reimer could hardly be pinned for the defeat. All three goals featured strange bounces and errors of some kind in and around the goal. It wasnt goaltending that was our main issue, Carlyle said. [Reimer] gave us a chance and thats all you can ask of your goaltender. [Were] there some rebounds that he kicked out or is there something youd like to improve on? For sure, but he was one of our better players tonight thats for sure. You just try and make the most of every opportunity youre given, said Reimer, who ended up with 30 saves. When you go in there you want to play hard, you want to battle and you want to give your team a chance. And leave the decision-making up to the coaches. They get paid to coach and I get paid to get in front of the puck and I enjoy doing it. Bernier could be in line to get the next two starts. Hes the likely bet to start in Colorado on Thursday and may just be the guy again on Saturday against New York, given Reimers stellar history against their Sunday opponent. The Leafs play in Ottawa that night, where Reimer boasts a 7-1-0 career record with a .971 save percentage. 4. Komarov Offence The Maple Leafs believed they missed the presence of Leo Komarov when he left the club to return to the KHL last season. All the things that you look for in a player he ticks a lot of boxes, general manager Dave Nonis said when they signed the 27-year-old to a four-year deal this past July. Komarov is bringing many of those same elements to the table this fall with one notable addition: offence. While he led his Moscow Dynamo squad in scoring last year, Komarov produced only nine points in his first 42 NHL games in 2013. Hes nearly matched that mark already this fall, setting a career-high for assists last week; he now has seven, tied for second behind Kessel for the team lead. I wouldnt say hes a natural offensive player, but I think he can still provide some [offence], Carlyle said. He still gets his chances and he works well within the framework of his linemates … Hes a hard guy to play against and those are things that make him what he is. 5. Desert Memories Daniel Winnik started his career in the desert with the Coyotes. His first NHL head coach just happened to be the Great One. It was a little awe-inspiring to be honest, Winnik said. My first camp, it was like holy crap, this is Wayne Gretzky being my coach. Gretzkys coaching staff also included fellow Hall of Famer, Grant Fuhr. Winnik remembers hearing a fascinating tale or two from their highly successful playing days. As for Gretzky, Winnik looks back on the experience with a grin, I always said it mustve been hard for him just watching us chip pucks in all the time. Stats-Pack 1-5-1 – Leafs record when failing to score the first goal this season. 11:48 – Ice-time for Stephane Robidas on Tuesday, a season-low. 6 – Goals from the Toronto defence, including a pair against the Coyotes. 13-7 – Mark by which the Leafs have been outscored in first periods. 16 – Points for Phil Kessel, now third in league scoring.

Up Next The Leafs finish their mini two-game road swing in Colorado on Thursday night. Dylan Bundy Jersey . The future hall of famers stole the show at the Bell Centre on Tuesday night, with Jagr moving into seventh place in all-time goal scoring and Brodeur stopping 29 shots as the Devils downed the Montreal Canadiens 4-1. Mark Trumbo Orioles Jersey . - After an exhilarating win in the snow, Pittsburgh safety Troy Polamalu got even better news when he returned to the locker room.The crowd may want to look ahead. And my friends in the media are already asking That Question. But Graham DeLaet isnt ready to look beyond his first tee shot on Saturday. After equaling the course record on Friday, you can forgive everyone for getting a little excited about the possibilities. You know, the chance that this damn 60-year drought can come to an end. It would be a great moment for Canadian golf, a great moment for DeLaet and, selfishly, a great moment for the keyboard tappers and microphone holders who would no longer have to ask That Question any longer. But lets back up just a bit here. Its not Sunday, yet. DeLaet ignited everyones imagination of just what the coronation might look like by posting a smooth 63. For the first time in a while, his putter behaved as he used his flat stick just 25 times when on the green. That, he said, was the result of some work he did earlier in the week with short game coach Gabriel Hjertstedt. The two of them came up with one small change that, as it often does with something as confounding as putting, made a big difference. "My putting coach was here Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday," said DeLaet. "We put in some good work and changed a little bit of how I was seeing lines. I was picking spots in front of the ball instead of picking spots at the hole. Just something a little bit different and it was nice to see some putts rolling in." To a certain extent, DeLaet will always live and die with his putting. Its his Achilles heel in an otherwise bulletproof golf game. Just look at the stats for this year – hes second in greens in regulation, 11th in driving distance, fifth in total driving and – wait for it – 137th in strokes gained, putting, the key indicator of how a player performs on the greens. But on this day, he was pure. He drained a 30-footer on 14 for a birdie, another one from 21 feet on the first hole and sunk a 20-footer to save a bogey on the 18th hole. That last one might be the most vital of the mmany that found the bottom of the cup. Eddie Murray Orioles Jersey. Playing his ninth hole of the day and already four under for the round, DeLaet drove his ball into the water, took a drop then hit his next shot up the fairway. From there he lofted a wedge onto the green. "I was kind of counting a double when I was walking up to the 18th green," he said, "so to hole that putt was a nice bonus." Its been a while since DeLaet has enjoyed such a good day with his putter, but he wasnt alone in getting the balls to drop. "It was definitely fun to see some putts roll in," he said. "All of us were kind of making putts all day." All of us would be his group of Matt Kuchar and Jim Furyk; the trio combined for 22 birdies. Furyk also tied the course record, held by Scott Verplank and David Morland IV. "There was just so much momentum," he stated. "The crowd was getting behind us. Even Matt and Jim, the crowd was starting to get behind them. They were just seeing such good golf all day. You definitely start feeding off each other and you almost expect to hole putts just to keep up." While DeLaet loved the emotion displayed by the fans at Royal Montreal – the vast majority on the property seemed to be following his group – and the way he played, he was careful not to start thinking about buying any silver polish just yet. The player who has yet to win a tournament on the PGA Tour is savvy enough to realize that it might take two more course records to get his name on the trophy. "I know theres going to be a little bit of added pressure because Im in good position heading into the weekend," said DeLaet. "But at the same time were only half way through this thing and if I can put something together like this [Saturday] then maybe we can start talking about that." Maybe for him. But in the brasseries and bistros and the dix-neuf holes, theyre already chatting. As they have been for oh, about 60 years. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
