lead to 24-3 at the half. Byrd also had the 22nd
« on: February 24, 2015, 08:46:15 PM »
DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings got a break, getting credit for a goal in perhaps one of the most bizarre ways in NHL history. Eliaquim Mangala Jersey . Niklas Kronwalls shot was deflected and bounced off the protective net out of play, caromed back over the glass, and struck goalie Jonathan Quicks back to tie the game with 26.1 seconds left in regulation. Tomas Tatar scored in the shootout, and Jimmy Howard stopped all three shots he faced in the tiebreaker to lift Detroit to a 3-2 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night. "Thats embarrassing for the league," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "It doesnt matter if we wouldve scored it or they scored it." Kronwall seemed to agree. "It shouldnt have counted," he said. "But at this stage of the game where were at in the standings, well take it." The Red Wings, who lost their two previous games 1-0, are in fifth place in the Atlantic Division and are in a logjam for a wild-card spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Detroit avoided getting shut out in three straight games for the first time in the regular season, and the first time since the 1945 Stanley Cup finals against Toronto. The Kings, especially defenceman Drew Doughty tried to protest Kronwalls goal, but it wasnt reviewable because none of the officials blew a whistle to stop play when the puck hit the net. "They just said they didnt see it," Doughty said. "Its unfortunate. We shouldve got two points. "Ive never seen that before, thats for sure." Los Angeles took a 2-1 lead when Jeff Carter scored off a rebound during a power play with 2:15 left in the third period. Quick and Howard -- two of the three U.S. Olympic goalies -- bumped into each other and had a heated exchange during a stoppage in play midway through the second period. "We were just discussing what we were going to do in Sochi," Howard joked. Howard roughed up Kings forward Kyle Clifford when he slid into the crease. Howard and Mike Richards then shoved each other and were called for roughing. Howard later skated toward his bench during a break, Quick stood in his way to say something, and the two had to be separated. "For him to do that, I thought it was pretty cool," said Doughty, who will play for Canada next month at the Winter Olympics. "I loved it, actually." Howard finished with 30 saves. Quick, who stopped 33 shots, shrugged off the tough-luck loss. "Season ended against Chicago, Game 5, last year," he said. "Thats tougher." Richards broke a scoreless tie at 9:06 of the second, and Henrik Zetterberg tied it 41 seconds later. The Kings went ahead on a power play, but Dwight King was penalized for holding onto the puck with 1:45 left in regulation. That proved to be costly. "They could see the puck when Dwight King covered it with his hand, but they couldnt see it when it went over the barn and came back in," Sutter said. Zetterbergs goal ended a scoreless streak that lasted 152 minutes, 21 seconds and dated to last weeks win against the Kings. The Red Wings started a season-high, five-game homestand, and they hope that is good news. Detroit, which had won only one of its last eight home games, started Saturday with an NHL-low six home victories this season. The Red Wings won for just the second time in nine shootouts. Detroit was without seven skaters who would have been in its lineup if healthy, including Pavel Datsyuk for the sixth straight game because of a lower-body injury. Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said the team has players making "millions and millions," that never seem to play. NOTES: Tatar returned from a one-game absence to attend his fathers funeral and replaced Mikael Samuelsson. ... Kings D Matt Greene was scratched for a second straight game because of an upper-body injury. ... Datsyuk isnt expected to play Monday against St. Louis. ... The Kings, who had won two straight, are two games into a five-game trip. They have lost five straight at Joe Louis Arena. Lucas Digne Jersey . 31 as the deadline to submit an Olympic hockey roster, the deadline has changed. After appeals from some top European countries - namely Russia, Sweden, Finland and Czech - over the past 24 hours, the National Hockey League, NHL Players Association and the IIHF agreed to move the date to Jan. Yohan Cabaye Jersey . Free agent John Axford, who had 46 saves for Milwaukee in 2011 but has struggled the past two seasons, agreed to a one-year, $4.TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making a case for saving coach Greg Schianos job with a strong second-half turnaround. The Bucs (4-9) beat the struggling Buffalo Bills 27-6 Sunday for their fourth win in five games following an 0-8 start that placed Schianos future in jeopardy. "We just dont quit, and that all starts with our head coach. Thats how he is," defensive tackle Gerald McCoy said. "Hes very consistent with his effort, and nothing really changes with how he prepares and how he comes to work every day that makes you want to work harder for that guy." Bobby Rainey scored on an 80-yard run on the second play of the game, Mike Glennon threw two touchdowns, and the McCoy-led defence forced five turnovers and sacked EJ Manuel seven times. "Our preparation is the same. Were just finishing games," McCoy said. "Were making the plays that we werent making before." The Bills have lost five of six, are assured of finishing without a winning record for the ninth straight year, and also are in danger of extending the NFLs longest current playoff drought to 14 consecutive seasons. Bills coach Doug Marrone held a team meeting after the game. "I find it very difficult after that game to stand up here and defend a lot of things," Marrone said. "I thought we played poorly. Actually, I shouldnt say I thought, I know we played poorly in all three phases," the coach added. "We had penalties. We had turnovers. We had misreads. We had missed tackles. We had things go wrong for us that there have been times during the year where weve been making improvement on it." Glennon wasnt exactly sensational coming off a 27-6 loss at Carolina, going 9 of 25 for 90 yards. But he had TD throws of 5 yards to Tim Wright and 38 to Vincent Jackson, who had three receptions for 70 yards to go over 1,000 for the season for the second straight year. Rainey finished with 127 yards on 22 carries. Buffalo, meanwhile, took up where it left off in a 34-31 overtime loss to Atlanta. The Bills lost fumbles on their final two possessions of that game, Stevie Johnson in the final minute of the fourth quarter and Scott Chandler two plays into OTT. Karim Benzema Jersey. This Sunday, they turned it over three times within a four-possession span of the second quarter, a stretch that might have been game-changing if Glennon hadnt thrown two interceptions. "We just have to figure out whats going on with this team," said Manuel, the first-round draft pick out of Florida State who doubled his interception total for the season. "I think we really have to find our identity," the rookie added, " We have three games left, we really need to finish strong moving on into the off-season and things like that." After outgaining the Bills 169 yards to 38 while building a 14-3 lead in the first quarter, the Bucs were limited to 77 net yards the rest of the way to finish with 246. It didnt matter. With Manuel throwing two interceptions in the second quarter and two more in the third, the Bills never made a serious move to get back in the game, finishing with field goals of 40 and 46 yards by Dan Carpenter. Manuel hit C.J. Spiller on an 83-yard scoring play that was wiped out by a fourth-quarter holding penalty. Leodis McKelvin muffed a fair catch on a punt inside the Buffalo 20, and a roughing-the-passer penalty -- albeit a borderline call -- against Jairus Byrd helped set up Glennons TD pass to Wright that extended Tampa Bays lead to 24-3 at the half. Byrd also had the 22nd interception of his career, moving him into a tie for 10th on Buffalos all-time list. Stephon Gilmores pick six minutes later prevented Tampa Bay from turning McKelvins muff into points. Linebacker Lavonte David had two of Tampa Bays four interceptions. He also had a sack. "Were playing really good football right now, and it all starts with our defence, with how many turnovers theyre forcing," Glennon said. "With the way our defence was playing, we did what we needed to do as an offence, and they did the rest. Its nice to see the second half of the season were 4-1." Notes: Raineys TD came 18 seconds into the game, the fastest score in Bucs history. ... Chandler had two catches for 24 yards, becoming the first Bills TE with consecutive 500-yard receiving seasons. ... David has an interception in Tampa Bays past three games. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys ' ' '
