Anthony Duclair had two assists for the Blackhawks. They won their second straight and third in four games following an eight-game losing streak that dropped them to last place in the Central Division.

Berube lost a bid for this first NHL shutout when Timo Meier scored his 15th goal on a screened shot with 7:51 left in the third period.

They were just better than us in the second period, Yeo said. We were sloppy. I thought we were drifting all over the place.

San Jose’s Brent Burns prevented a goal with less than five minutes left. During a scramble in front of the net, the puck hit the post and was sliding along the goal line when Burns knocked it out.

You work for your own luck, Yeo said. You earn your luck. We just dug ourselves too big a hole against a good defensive team.

This was the first meeting between St. Louis and San Jose this season. The Blues swept the three-game season series last year, outscoring the Sharks 11-3 overall, and had won four straight against the Sharks.

Christina Beckles, the founder of the Sato Project, said that she’s never seen anything like this.

The amount of dogs that need help now is beyond anything I’ve ever seen before in all those years of rescue, Beckles told ABC News.

Hallmark Channel is getting in on the action, too, with the Kitten Bowl. Coach Derby, a kitten who was rescued after Hurricane Harvey.

Mens Maxime Lagace Jersey Star, another one of North Shore Animal League’s pets, will also play in the Kitten Bowl. Star, and 20 other kittens, were in Brandon Mebane Jersey a shelter that sustained heavy damage in Hurricane Irma. North Shore Animal League rescued all of them.

While the Puppy Bowl and Kitten Bowl are meant to raise awareness of the joys of adopting rescue pets, most of the pets that participate aren’t actually adoptable. They’ve already found their forever homes.

NHL rookie rankings: Mathew Barzal Jersey running away with the lead

Barring something unforeseen, New York Islanders rookie Mathew Barzal is starting to look like he’ll run away with the Calder Trophy this year. With 62 points in 61 games, he leads all rookies by 12 points and ranks 16th overall in the NHL. He is just the latest example of a first-year player raising the bar for our expectations of what is possible for rookies.

The influx of budding stars is making for a more entertaining product on the ice. Barzal is absolutely the kind of player who you want to pay to watch. Even if he were just doing laps in an empty arena, you could probably charge for to see him impress.

The NBA schedule giveth and taketh away. A week after being granted a schedule advantage against Golden State, the Nuggets will be on the wrong side Louis Vasquez Youth jersey of the schedule against the Suns. The Nuggets will be in Houston on Feb. 9, then head out that same night — gaining an hour — for Phoenix to close out a back-to-back set. And let it be said — heading from Houston to Phoenix overnight is no easy flight. As the crow flies, that route is more than 1,000 miles. Oh, and the Suns will hold a two-day rest advantage coming into this one.
Alex Pietrangelo Kids Jersey
The 28-year-old forward, selected to his first All-Star appearance last month, has 15 goals and 47 assists this season — already setting career highs for assists and points (62). Bailey is tied for seventh in the league in assists and third on the Islanders in points, behind rookie Mathew Barzal (65) and captain John Tavares (64).
Game Youth Rico Gathers Jersey
Josh has become one of the core members of the New York Islanders, general Manager Garth Snow said in a statement. To come into the past few seasons and see Josh set new career highs each year, has been impressive and we’re excited to see him continue to do that with the organization as we move forward.

Bailey’s contract status was largely overshadowed this season by that of Tavares, who is also in the final year of his deal.

Selected by the Islanders in the first round, No. 9 overall, in the 2008 NHL draft, Bailey has 121 goals and 247 assists in 697 games over 10 seasons in New York. He also has four goals and seven assists in 22 career playoff games.

After healthy offseason, Albert Pujols Jersey expected to play more in field

Albert Pujols is slim, trim and ready to dust off his first-baseman’s mitt.
Derrick Henry Kids Jersey Men's Adidas Joel Armia Authentic Navy Blue Home NHL Jersey: Winnipeg Jets #40
The 38-year-old former MVP is looking to reverse a downward-trending career, in part by contributing more in the field now that he has shaken off injuries. The Los Angeles Angels are hoping Pujols can share the designated hitter’s role with rookie Shohei Ohtani.

However, when medium is added to the classifications, it turns out the BABIP of soft-hit balls is higher than medium. This might seem counterintuitive, but a medium-hit grounder is most likely to be fielded cleanly without most runners able to beat it out. Also, a medium-hit fly ball is what old-school fans call a can of corn. Softly hit flies can fall in safely.

When the real world impinges on sports narratives, complicating them, both fans and media are willing to look the other way for the sake of preserving these tales of heroism; to find those cathartic moments. They do this by dismissing everything bad that the athlete does as a one-time mistake, a setback, or by finding a way to twist the actions into something to be overcome; just another obstacle on the path to greatness.

But sports can’t run from real life forever. If White is that redemptive hero that he’s painted as then he should be unafraid to face questions about his personal behavior. And the sporting world should be comfortable with the discomfort of seeing one of the greatest athletes of skateboarding answer those questions.

Delvin Breaux Kids Jersey White’s greatness in the sport should and can be celebrated without having to dismiss or gloss over the negative things about him.

Sanchez had the chance to reset over the winter. His wife gave birth to a baby boy on Dec. 22, and the new arrival tethered him to the Miami area.

The down time helped him gain a deeper perspective about the balance between baseball and family. The competitive fire is still hot, as is his desire for postseason play, but the internal pressure is not as intense.

To make room on the 40-man roster, the Twins transferred right-hander Trevor Tim Hardaway Youth jersey May to the 60-day disabled list. May, who is recovering from Tommy John surgery, won’t be eligible to pitch until May 28. He’s working toward becoming a starter again.

The United States was hoping for more on Saturday, particularly out of Ted Ligety in the men’s giant slalom and Gus Kenworthy in the men’s slopestyle skiing events, but the night wasn’t a total wash. Nick Goepper won the silver medal in the slopestyle, finishing behind Oystein Braaten of Norway and ahead of Alex Beaulieu-Marchand of Canada.

Keenan Allen missed most of the 2015 and 2016 seasons, but bounced back in a big way in 2017.

The Chargers receiver set a franchise record with 102 receptions for 1,393 yards, which was third in the NFL, and scored six touchdowns. Allen was named the NFL’s Comeback Player of the Year during Saturday’s NFL Honors program in Minneapolis.

Allen suffered a season-ending kidney injury while making a touchdown catch against the Ravens in the eighth game of the 2015 season. He had healed well and received a four-year contract extension before the 2016 season only to see his 2016 campaign end just as it started.

Allen tore his right ACL in the season opener at Kansas City and was lost for the year.

Finally healthy again in 2017, Allen had a career year and posted more than 1,000 receiving yards for the first time since his rookie season. The 25-year-old North Carolina native was a third-round pick out of California in the 2013 NFL Draft and caught 71 passes for 1,046 yards and eight touchdowns in his first season.

After falling to the Giants twice in between, the Patriots rebounded to stop the Seahawks’ quest to repeat in Super Bowl 49, but they saw the Broncos’ dominant defense take Super Bowl 50 before that epic rally to best the Falcons last year.

The NFL was in a quarterback drought this season, as a number of teams struggled to find consistent signal-callers. Foles has one season left on his current contract, with free agency coming after the 2018 season, but teams will almost certainly be knocking on Philadelphia’s door to inquire about Foles this offseason.

And why not? He spent most of the season with a clipboard, watching as second-year pro Carson Wentz dazzled Eagles fans with mouth-watering glimpses into the future. But Foles answered the call when Wentz went down with a torn ACL late in the season, maintaining in the NFC championship and Super Bowl the same high-level offense the Eagles enjoyed with Wentz.

“I’m going to stay aggressive with Nick and let his playmakers make plays,” Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said on NBC before the Super Bowl.

That’s about as big a compliment a head coachmake about his backup quarterback entering a Super Bowl, and he meant it. The playbook was open all game Sunday, allowing Foles to throw downfield, audible and even catch a touchdown pass.

After his success late this season, and becoming a Super Bowl winner, it’s hard to imagine Foles accepting a backup role with so many starting opportunities awaiting this offseason.

Ben Roethlisberger Jersey pass to Jesse James with 28 seconds to go on Sunday has been a touchdown since football players wore leather helmets.

It was a sensational series of events that gave the Patriots a 27-24 victory over the Steelers at Heinz Field, culminating in a replay that feels so wrong even if it was correct by the letter of the current law, and by a colossally clutch play by the Patriots defense that was reminiscent of the Malcolm Butler interception against the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX.

Two plays later, Roethlisberger’s pass to Eli Rogers was tipped by Eric Rowe and intercepted in the end zone by Duron Harmon to win it for New England. Some, including Patriots defenders, thought Roethlisberger was trying to fool them with a fake spike, but he said he saw the coaches telling him to run a play while he was yelling clock it.

The Saints, who play at the Rams on Sunday, are in the lead at 8-2 after an 0-2 start, followed by the 7-3 Panthers, who have won three in a row, and then the reigning Super Bowl runner-up Falcons, who are 6-4 and trending up.

The Saints and Panthers, who play the Jets on Sunday, play each other on Dec. 3 in New Orleans in a division Authentic Joel Bitonio Jersey showdown game.
Game Mens Chris Wormley Jersey
If the playoffs began now, the NFC South would be the only division represented by three teams 锟斤拷 with the Saints the No. 3 seed in the NFC, Carolina No. 5 and Atlanta No. 6. Never since the current division format began in 2002 has a division had three teams qualify for the playoffs.

The players likely will only be able to wear them during warmups, as the NFL has strict rules regarding dress code.

Shazier’s teammates have found a way to remember him on the field as he continues to recover from an injury suffered Monday against the Bengals while making a tackle. He underwent spinal stabilization surgery on Wednesday.

If Brock Osweiler Jersey had finished 6 of 18 with an interception and a 28.2 passer rating we’d all be talking about how he’s still one of the league’s worst players.

Limited Art Shell Jersey Kizer was solid during his first drive, completed several big third-down conversions, and would have kept the drive going if not for a Kenny Britt dropped pass. Put another way: There’s a lot to like.
Nike Women's Frank Clark Elite Green Jersey - Seattle Seahawks NFL #55 Rush Vapor Untouchable
They are one of the best in the NFL, can dominate in the run game and protect Brees in the pass game, and neutralize the biggest strength for multiple NFC contenders. The defense is not your big brother’s Saints defense, with New Orleans getting an All-Pro season from Cameron Jordan and outstanding years from rookies Marcus Womens Wilbert Montgomery Jersey Williams and Marshon Lattimore. At the end of the day, this is a team that can win without Brees having to go nuclear. If he does, watch out below.

Conley was not in the room when police arrived, and his friends said they did not know where he went.

Early Tuesday, cryptic rumors of a potential rape allegation involving a top NFL Draft prospect began circulating on, but the prospect was not named and the report made it clear the player had not been charged with a crime and strongly denied the allegations.

Later in the day, TMZ identified that prospect as Conley.

President Trump on Friday lashed out at pro football players who don’t stand during the national anthem 懈C and urged team owners to remove those silent protesters from the field.

Trump, appearing at a campaign rally for US Sen. Luther Strange (R-Ala.) said he wished NFL suits would take a hard-line stance against players who take a knee while The Star-Spangled Banner is played before kickoff.

Roger Goodell: NFL fans too dumb to get why Josh Brown Jersey fiasco not my fault

Josh Brown is disappearing. Roger Goodell is appearing to dis 锟斤拷 everyone 锟斤拷 from the victim to the police to the NFL’s ignorant fans, seemingly everyone except for the alleged wife-beater 锟斤拷 to deflect blame for the league’s inadequate investigation and confounding discipline scheme.
Elite Women's Wes Horton Blue Alternate Jersey: NFL Nike Carolina Panthers #96 Vapor Untouchable
ESPN reported Monday morning Brown is not expected to appeal the NFL’s decision to place him on the Commissioner’s Exempt List.

He added: That’s why we’d like to speak to the people involved whether it’s the victim or the people involved that may have information, including law enforcement.

After a token we take this issue incredibly seriously and a we’re not going to tolerate it, Goodell had the gall to suggest Caris LeVert Jersey that the commoners who follow the NFL can’t comprehend the reasons for cracking down on end-zone twerking and custom cleats while alleged wife-beaters escape even the baseline punishment of a six-game ban.

Odell Beckham Jr. got it done last week at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla. He so impressed the NFL with his professionalism and interaction with fans that Troy Vincent, the league’s NFL executive vice president, sent the Giants a letter praising the emotional receiver.

He was a stellar ambassador of our sport to fans, coaches, his fellow players and all who came into contact with him during the week, Vincent wrote in the letter, a copy of which The Post obtained. Throughout the skill challenge and each day’s activities, Odell went above and beyond in his engagement. From signing autographs to taking pictures to encouraging others, we found his cheerful attitude and dynamic smile as an example to all.

No doubt, the Giants were pleased to receive the news about Beckham’s comportment, even if it came at a no-pressure event such as the Pro Bowl. Beckham ended his third NFL season experiencing some turbulence.

Motuapuaka was one of the stars at the NFLPA game.

WR Nelson Agholor vs. Vikings CB Terence Newman: Agholor was a big-play and red-zone scoring machine for Carson Wentz. But after one good first game with Foles against the Giants, he’s been a non-factor, save for his inside rushing play against the Falcons.

Despite a great matchup in the divisional round, Agholor got only three targets — catching them all for 21 yards. Agholor, 24, has speed, quickness and youth advantages over Newman, 39. They are similar in size, but Agholor is a little bigger. The Eagles will not win unless Agholor is involved a lot more all over the field in the passing game.

In London, before the start of the day’s first NFL game, Ravens Coach John Harbaugh joined his players, linking arms, and Ravens Hall of Famer Ray Lewis took a knee. Jaguars owner Shahid Khan locked arms with his players and the Jaguars’ coaches. Khan, who donated to Trump’s inaugural committee, was the second owner to participate in events related to anthem protests. Cleveland Browns owner Jimmy Haslam stood on field and locked arms with players, military personnel and first responders in Week 1 of the 2017 season. More joined as the day went on.

James Looney, DT, California — He was able to collapse the pocket and capped his career with 9 1/2 sacks as a senior.

Andrew Motuapuaka, LB, Virginia Tech — Following a highly productive career for the Hokies, he had a great week in Pasadena. The 6 feet, 236-pound New Zealand native has good vision and ball skills. He was able to recognize plays, resulting in tipped passes at the line, and is a sure tackler in the open field.

Also on Thursday, Ryan Mallett was outplayed in what could be an important race to be Baltimore’s backup QB, Tyrod Taylor endured a horrible first-half performance and Blake Bortles got booed after another terrible outing that could put him on the hot seat before the season even begins. You can read about those performances plus even more on the day’s action in Thursday’s roundup.chargers_042

Ryan Fitzpatrick Jersey didn’t do the Jets that much good when he was their QB.

He can do them some good Sunday in Tampa by losing to them, now that he has taken over as the Buccaneers’ fill-in starter.

The Falcons have four losses in five games after a 3-0 start. They simply aren’t very good at the moment. They’d better pull things together quickly as they face two NFC contenders, the Cowboys and Seahawks, in their next two games.

The Chiefs rolled up 484 yards on offense, Bobby Clarke Jersey got another explosive touchdown from Tyreek Hill and closed out the Broncos via a TD toss by 346-pound nose tackle Dontari Poe.

Pittsburgh managed a pulse-pounding win in the opener, going 75 yards in 10 plays in the final two minutes to knock off the Ravens, 31-27, and in doing so knock Baltimore out of the playoffs while clinching the AFC North. Antonio Brown’s stretch was enough to get the ball across the plane of the goal line at the end of a four-yard pass from Ben Roethlisberger to secure the victory. Not including two spikes to stop the clock, Roethlisberger was 8-for-8 on the winning march. Not too shabby.

Limited Andy Dalton Jersey Here’s a complete breakdown of the Patriots-Jaguars matchup before they battle to advance to Super Bowl LII.

The Patriots’ starting wide receivers, Brandin Cooks and Chris Hogan, will struggle with the size and tight coverage of Jaguars cornerbacks Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye. When the Patriots go three wide, Danny Amendola doesn’t have an easy spot in the slot, either, against underrated nickel back Aaron Colvin.

There’s been buzz about Ramsey covering Gronkowski when the latter isn’t in-line as a tight end. But don’t expect the Jaguars to deviate from Ramsey and Bouye handling their thirds of the field outside, with safeties Tashaun Gipson and Barry Church toggling between deep middle and run support/blitz responsibilities. Brady won’t be seeing multiple looks, but he won’t be thrilled about the one he does see.

Sham interviews drain the rule of all its meaning. Yet there’s no way any non-white candidate the Raiders interview now in the middle of their Gruden negotiations can possibly be taken seriously.
