quarter-final of this years world championship.

TAMPA, Fla. Aviante Collins Jersey . - A scoreless night from star Steven Stamkos was no problem for the surging Tampa Bay Lightning.Cedric Paquette scored his first two NHL goals as the Lightning completed a four-game home sweep by beating the Calgary Flames 5-2 on Thursday night.Tampa Bay also got goals from Brian Boyle, Tyler Johnson and Valtteri Filppula.

Mark Giordano had two assists.I felt that the effort was there, Calgary coach Bob Hartley said. I dont think that we looked like a bunch of fat cats out there. Its not a matter that they outworked us. They outsmarted us because we made some bad mistakes, but its a game of mistakes. No one does it on purpose, especially not in this organization.After Paquettes second goal at 61 seconds of the second period, Boyle put Tampa Bay up 3-1 at 4:02 on the rebound after Jonas Hiller stopped the forwards initial shot during a short-handed breakaway.Weve got it going pretty good up and down the lineup, Boyle said.

The centre had 13 assists over the previous nine games.Filppula added an empty-net goal with 2:10 to play.We were forcing things, especially after they got up, Giordano said. I think we were forcing more than we normally do.Paquette opened the scoring with his first NHL goal from in-close at 9:55 of the first.Its a great moment for me, Paquette said. I think I will remember it for the rest of my life.Hudler tied it at 1-1 when he beat Ben Bishop with 4:38 left in the period.Bishop stopped 29 shots, while Hiller made 28 saves.NOTES: NHL commissioner Gary Bettman attended the game and said the league is keeping our eye on Tampa for future events including the All-Star Game.

Henderson (20-3) received winning scores of 48-47 and 49-46, and the other judge scored it 48-47 for Thomson (20-6). The announcement drew boos from the United Center crowd.

Two others are in the running. Eric, Marc and Jordan Staal from Thunder Bay, Ont., were among the 47 players invited to the Olympic orientation camp in Calgary that concludes Wednesday. "Its pretty surreal that youre looking out with this group of players and two of them are your brothers," Marc observed. The siblings wore the first initial of their first names along with the Staal surname on the back of their camp T-shirts. The prospect of the same on Canadian jerseys at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, is a tantalizing thought for them. "I think it would be pretty special not only for our family, but our hometown of Thunder Bay in general," Eric said. "For all three of us to have the opportunity, its pretty cool and something were all striving to do." Eric won mens hockey gold at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver. Barring any setbacks from a knee injury suffered at the world championship in May, that experience should give the 28-year-old Carolina Hurricanes captain leverage to wear the Maple Leaf again. Marc is a 26-year-old New York Rangers defenceman. Jordan, 24, is Erics teammate with the Hurricanes. A fourth Staal brother, Jared, is Hurricanes property and played on a line with Eric and Jordan in a game last season. The 23-year-old forward has yet to become a full-time NHL player. Jordan likes his oldest brothers chances of becoming an Olympian again, but handicapping a Staal trio in Sochi is difficult. "I dont know if Id throw a percentage on there, but I think theres one of us who is looking pretty solid," Jordan observed. "I think the other two are going to have to do some work and just have a great start to the season." The fact the three brothers were invited to orientation camp works in their favour for Olympic inclusion, according to Eric. "Weve obviously had a chance to be here at this camp and see the way were going to play and how the team is expected to perform," he said. "I think a lot has to do with how the next couple of months go and where were at individually here in December. &"Each one of us has done a lot in our careers so far to give us a chance to be there and well see what happens. Kyle Sloter Jersey. " Six-foot-four forwards Eric and Jordan have the skating and puck skills to excel on the big ice. They were Canadian teammates who won gold at the 2007 mens world championships and represented Canada again this year in Stockholm. Jordans penalty-killing prowess and a scoring touch that makes him a short-handed scoring threat should garner consideration for the Olympic squad. Marc, also six foot four, is a shut-down defenceman with a long reach. He won a pair of gold medals at the world junior hockey championships of 2006 and 2007. But of the three brothers, his chances of participating in the Winter Olympics are murkier. He suffered a small tear in his right eye when the puck struck him in the face March 5. Marc missed 27 regular season games and 11 playoff games. The eye wont be 100 per cent, Marc has said, but he doesnt believe it will hinder his return to form. "It was more of just adapting to the depth perception and things like that when I was coming back," Marc explained. "It just wasnt clicking when I was trying to come back in the playoffs there. But with the time off and the training now, everythings back to normal and Im feeling really good. "Limitations? I have no limitations at all. From the time I was cleared to start working out, there wasnt anything I couldnt do as far as physically getting ready." Staal sprained his right medial collateral ligament in a frightening knee-on-knee collision with Sweden defenceman Alex Edler in the quarter-final of this years world championship. "I feel better than I thought I would, to be honest," Eric said. "Now at this point, at the end of August, Ive been skating a few times now and I feel there wont be any issues when training camp starts." Edler was suspended for the remainder of the world championship. The International Ice Hockey Federation meted out an additional two-game suspension that Edler would serve in Sochi if hes named to the Swedish Olympic team. "They gave him a little bit more, which is fine by me," Eric said. Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near MeCheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
