Undefeated Blues pose test for Rangers

The New York Rangers and Henrik Lundqvist will look to build off their first win of the season when they continue a heavy stretch of home games with a Tuesday contest against the St. Louis Blues at Madison Square Garden.

Lundqvist rebounded from allowing five goals and being pulled after one period during the Rangers’ 8-5 road loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday by making 34 saves in his 64th career shutout on Sunday, a 2-0 victory against the visiting Montreal Canadiens.

“It was very important to bounce back for all of us and also the way we won the game,” Lundqvist said. “This is how we have to play; you have to do every little thing right.”

“Lots of chances, but we need to find a way to finish a little bit better,” Julien said after the loss to the Rangers. “I thought it was an improvement from our last game, from defensively to even breakouts to managing the puck. I thought we spent a lot of time in the other team’s end. The next step is finding ways to capitalize on those opportunities and the time we spend in the Troy Polamalu Cheap Jerseys other team’s end.”

Canadiens captain Max Pacioretty, who has scored one of their three goals, said, “They were good calls. Maybe if we disagreed with them, it’d be frustrating. We were getting the Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping puck there, but … it’s nice to look at the shot clock and have lots of shots, but I think Pittsburgh just proved last year winning the Cup that making plays, making the goalie move, making it hard on him is how you win games.”

NBA rumors: Pistons, T-wolves reportedly discussing blockbuster trade

The Pistons and Timberwolves are reportedly ready to make a blockbuster move.

According to ESPN.com, the two teams have held discussions regarding a point guard swap that would send Reggie Jackson to Minnesota and Ricky Rubio to Detroit. The Timberwolves would also add Shabazz Muhammad to sweeten the deal.

Jackson signed a five-year, $80 million contract at the beginning of last season, while Rubio has just two years and under $30 million left on his contract.

His comments came after a 108-107 loss Monday to the Hawks, a game in which Melo had a chance to win for New York just before the final buzzer. While he searched for an answer on the final shot, he also had to account for his future with the Knicks.

Anthony’s status with the team has been in question for a while, although most of the talk is media-created. Recently, however, Charley Rosen, a close friend of team president Phil Jackson’s, wrote a column on FanRag Sports essentially saying Anthony’s days with the Knicks should be over.

In response to the column, Anthony said over the weekend, “If they feel my time in New York is over, I guess that’s a conversation we should have.”

He echoed those comments Monday, adding: “If they want to come talk to me, I’m around them guys Troy Polamalu Cheap Jerseys every day. I don’t want this to be kind of going back and forth between me and the front office, management, because it’s really nothing, I responded to an article that I read. That was that. There’s Rugby Cheap Jerseys nothing between myself and management at this point.”

Both of these teams got hot last year and made it the postseason.

Rankins sat out the first seven games of 2016 due to an injury he suffered in college, but he managed to tally four sacks in the final nine games of the season despite coming in off the bench in every game. He looks primed for a breakout year Toronto Maple Leafs Cheap Jerseys in 2017 after flying under the radar in his rookie season.

Joseph was solid when he was able to play, but the safety managed to play in only 12 games (nine starts) due to multiple injuries. The jury’s out on his overall impact with the Raiders, who have to hope he won’t be the next D.J. Hayden.

This game could potentially draw fans in London, but it’s hard to imagine West Coast NFL fans waking up before 7 a.m. to watch this game. East Coasters probably won’t be keeping a close eye on this one either.

Both of these teams got hot last year and made it the postseason. The problem, however, is they have the potential to fall off in 2017 if things don’t go right. That’s not to say both teams will disappoint, but there’s a decent chance this game might not have playoff implications come November.

In their inaugural Los Angeles season, the Chargers face former head coach Mike McCoy, now Denver’s OC, in the first game of the season. Last year, McCoy’s Chargers upset the Broncos in one of the most emotional Thursday night games of the season.

In the most predictable Sunday Night Football opener, the Giants and Cowboys will square off for the third time in five years. Even if past matchups between these two clubs have been nail-biters, the NFL’s insistence to shove the New York-Dallas Troy Polamalu Cheap Jerseys matchup down fans’ throats is a bit frustrating.
