Post lance at the top of the table suggests there could b
The Vancouver Canucks appeared to hit the wall at the end of their just-completed seven-game road trip. Though theyre finally back home and rested, meetings with the New York Rangers havent gone very well in the past few years. The Canucks look to snap a three-game losing streak tonight and avoid a fifth straight defeat to the Rangers, who have had even more time off than Vancouver before beginning a four-game trip. You can listen to the game live on TSN Radio 1040 Vancouver, with coverage starting at 5pm pt. The Canucks (18-9-2) won three of the first four on their eastern trek but appeared to have run out of gas while playing the final three contests in four days to close the stretch. They straggled home after falling 3-1 to Montreal on Tuesday, getting outshot 13-5 in the second period and managing a season-low 16 shots overall. Were definitely excited, goaltender Ryan Miller said. A lot of guys are ready to get home. After 14 days, its just time. Well regroup. Vancouver gave up 11 non-shootout goals in the last three contests after posting two shutouts in the first four on the trip. Well take the .500 road trip (3-3-1) and well go back home and get better and keep improving, forward Alexandre Burrows said. It would have been nice to get more, but if you looked at the two-week road trip early in the year and said (we would go) .500, I think we would have taken it. We got through it. Forward Shawn Matthias returns for the Canucks this evening after missing two games with a head injury. Vancouver is opening a four-game homestand and looking for a third consecutive victory at Rogers Arena, but New York has limited the Canucks to three goals during its run in the series. The Rangers took the most recent meeting 3-1 at Vancouver on April 1 for their second straight win there. New York (12-10-4) has been off since avoiding a third straight defeat with a 4-3 overtime victory over Pittsburgh on Monday. Defenseman Kevin Klein overcame losing part of his ear on a high stick in the first period to score in the extra session for his career-high sixth goal. It was also his career-best third game-winner - two of which have come in OT - and Klein is tied for the team lead with Rick Nash at plus-9. We needed it for a couple reasons, said Henrik Lundqvist, who made 32 saves. Obviously for confidence, but also we need points to get back in the race. Nash scored to give him six goals and three assists in an eight-game point streak. The Rangers will take another stab at ending their season-long inconsistency as they open a swing that also takes them to Edmonton and Calgary before heading back east to close the trip against Carolina on Dec. 20. New York has gone 1-4-1 in its last six away games and is 3-5-1 on the road overall. Were going out west. Western trips sometimes are good for the team, to bond a little bit, and also sometimes youve got a lot of travel, so you get kind of both, where youre getting the bond and you are traveling quite a bit, center Derek Stepan said. ... We gotta make sure we put good efforts on the ice. Another dominant performance against the Canucks from Lundqvist would help. He blanked Vancouver in two straight starts Jan. 13, 2011 and Oct. 18, 2011, before stopping 34 shots April 1. Lundqvist, though, has posted a 3.48 goals-against average in his last four games in whats been a down season for him so far. Forward Chris Kreider returns for the Rangers after missing Mondays game with a sore neck. Projected Canucks lines vs. Rangers: Forwards: D. Sedin - H. Sedin - Hansen Burrows - Bonino - Vrbata Matthias - Richardson - Vey Higgins - Horvat - Dorsett Defencemen: Edler - Tanev Sbisa - Bieksa Stanton - Weber Chris Godwin Jersey . On Thursday theyll learn even more. Despite the cloud of uncertainty that has followed them around from the moment general manager Masai Ujiri was brought in to put his stamp on the franchise, the Raptors have surpassed all pre-season expectations. Chris Godwin Buccaneers Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes used a strong third period to extend their winning streak to three games. http://www.buccaneersapparelsshop.com/k ... rsey-c-56/. Seager had another triple, a home run and a double in a rare feat not seen in more than 40 years, leading Felix Hernandez and the Seattle Mariners past the New York Yankees 10-2. "It was a weird play," Seager said of the triple in the fourth inning. Justin Evans Youth Jersey . The Canadiens captain, who underwent surgery on his injured biceps in the off-season, had been skating with the team in a non-contact capacity since last week. O. J. Howard Womens Jersey . Spezza scored a power-play goal with 5 minutes left and Stephane Da Costa had the other two goals to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 3-2 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Tuesday night.After Michael van Gerwens thrilling draw with Phil Taylor, we picked out the talking points from night seven in the Premier League. Things are hotting up with the play-off picture taking shape and the battle to avoid elimination set to go to the wire.This weeks trip to Glasgow proved pivotal at both ends of the table, so with Judgement Night just two weeks away, we look back on another terrific evening of tungsten action. Power a major threat Taylor remains level on points with Premier League leader Van Gerwen He may not have won but Phil Taylor showed that he will be very much in the shake up for major titles this year.The Power came from 5-1 and 6-4 down to register a 6-6 draw with Michael van Gerwen, who missed three darts to win the match in the 11th leg.By his own admission the 16-time world champion had a disappointing 2015 but told Sky Sports this week that he has got his love and appetite for the game back and that was evident on stage in Glasgow. Van Gerwen missed three match darts as Taylor came from 5-1 behind to draw And perhaps the shorter forms of the game are where the Power can add to his major tally - the Premier League final is played over no more than 21 legs and that might just suit Taylor.The draining format of the World Championship can take its toll but the Matchplay in Blackpool and the quickfire Premier League may just suit a rejuvenated Taylor, who has already admitted the top four is his target in order to be back at the O2.Taylor last won the title in 2012 and after missing out on Finals Night last year, few would bet against him being in contention this yearWelcome home champ Gary Anderson picked up four points in front of his Scottish fans The Glasgow crowd were in attendance in their thousands as they welcomed home the back-to-back world champion and defending Premer League champion Gary Anderson.The Flying Scotsman now resides in Somerset but is always assured of rousing reception when the Premier League heads north of the border and the Hydro crowd did not disappoint as they welcomed him with one of the best atmospheres weve experienced this season.After Anderson missed the opening night in Leeds, the 10,000 strong crowd had their champ on stage twice and he kicked off with a repeat of the World Championship final against Adrian Lewis. Premier League recap Look back on night seven of the Premier League Anderson had won the last four Premier League meetings between the two and he made it five with a dominant display against an inconsistent Lewis for a 7-4 win.MC John McDonald cranked up atmosphere and when House of Pains Jump Around kicked in the welcome for Anderson was rapturous.A 13-darter followed by an early break of throw delighted the masses, who responded a chorus of Oh Gary Gary.Anderson was back for more in the last match of the night. In a battle of Scotsmen, his victory over Peter Wright sent the masses into the Glasgow night happy and Anderson into the play-off places for the first time this season with a second win of the night and fifth straight win in the format.Whats gone wrong for Chizzy? Dave Chisnall suffered his third straight loss (Pic by Lawrence Lustig) Its three straight defeats for Dave Chisnall after losing a crunch clash with Raymond van Barneveld - both men have been in free fall of late but it was Barney who produced a five-leg surge from 3-2 down for a 7-4 win that should keep him in the competition for an extra few weeks.dddddddddddd.Chisnalls 7-0 win over Robert Thornton seems light years away and its now four defeats in a row for the man from St Helens, who only has a two-point advantage over the Scotsman and Michael Smith.Chisnall faces Anderson next week before a Judgement Night showdown with Wright - he may need at least two points in some capacity to preserve his Premier League status.Signs of life from ThornThornton remains bottom of the table but there were signs of life from the Scot in Glasgow that suggest he is up for the battle to avoid relegation.Despite a fifth defeat from six matches the Thorn averaged 101 and hit more than two 180s for the first time in the competition as he went down to a battling 7-4 defeat to James Wade. Robert Thornton (right) can draw confidence from his defeat to James Wade A single break was enough for the Machine, who moved into the top four, while Thornton is two points adrift at the foot of the table but with a game in hand over Michael Smith and Dave Chisnall. He plays Smith next week before Judgement Night.Rod Harrington believes there was improvement from the two-time major winner.The first six legs he held on to his throw at three legs apiece, Harrington told Sky Sports.You thought then he just needs to put one really good leg together to nick the throw and he would have a chance of his first win.But all of a sudden it was him who had the bad leg, Wadey stuck in a good leg and you have to give James credit - he is playing so solidly at the moment and he got over the line.There was improvement from Thornton but just a few too many edgy legs.Top spot up for grabs Van Gerwen will be determined to hold off the chasing pack The battle for the next two weeks will be at the bottom as the scrap to avoid relegation goes to the wire, but a quick glance at the top of the table suggests there could be a new name on top of the regular-season standings.Michael van Gerwen has topped the last three renewals and before him Taylor had topped the first eight editions of the tournament.The Dutchman currently sits top of the pile by one leg from The Power, with the pair just one point clear of Anderson and Wade, who complete the top four. Taylor had a message for Van Gerwen after their Premier League draw Anderson and Wade are previous winners of the competition and will pose a huge threat to the big two - Taylor would love to pinch top spot, MVG admits he wants to finish top. Lewis, despite his inconsistency, is only three points back and would be a threat if he can find his best on a more regular basis.It could be quite a battle before we even get to the O2.
