Post ing the series by failing to
Its been 162 days since the Winnipeg Jets played a meaningful game inside MTS Centre, and now following Tuesdays 5-4 win in Edmonton, the Jets return home to play the Los Angeles Kings. Paul Edmonds will join me on TSN 1290 for the radio broadcast, while Dennis Beyak, Shane Hnidy and Sara Orlesky will have the game on TSN Jets. Face off is set for 7:15 due to opening night festivities. Ondrej Pavelec will start his 2nd straight game in goal after making 34 saves against the Oilers. Jets Projected Lines: Ladd-Little-WheelerKane-Scheifele-SetoguchiTangradi-Jokinen-FrolikWright-Slater-Thorburn Enstrom-ByfuglienBogosian-TroubaStuart-Postma Lifetime vs the Kings, Evander Kane has 3 goals and 1 assist in 3 games while Blake Wheeler has 6 points (2 goals & 3 assists) in 6 games. Defenseman Grant Clitsome is the lone Jet on the Injured Reserve List. The Kings are coming off a 3-2 shoot out win in St. Paul, Minnesota last night. Jeff Carter tied the game in the 3rd period and also scored the shoot out winner. Jonathan Quick will start in goal after making 27 saves. Head Coach Darryl Sutter confirmed this morning he will dress the same players as last night. Kings Projected Lines: King-Kopitar-WilliamsFrattin-Richards-CarterBrown-Stoll-LewisClifford-Fraser-Nolan Regehr-DoughtyMitchell-VoynovMuzzin-Greene Lifetime against Atlanta/Winnipeg, Anze Kopitar has 5 points (2 goals & 3 assists) in 5 games, Jeff Carter has 21 points, including 11 goals in 25 games, while Justin Williams 14 goals & 17 assists in 38 games. The last and only time the Kings previously played against the Jets was December 27, 2011 here at MTS Centre when Evander Kane scored the overtime winner in a 1-0 win. The Kings return to Winnipeg March 6th, while the Jets close out the 3 game regular season series March 29th in Los Angeles. Following tonights game, the Jets host Teemu Selanne and the Anaheim Ducks Sunday night, 7:00 at MTS Centre (TSN 1290, TSN Jets). Marcus Kruger Blackhawks Jersey . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. Stan Mikita Blackhawks Jersey Authentic . -- Adrian Peterson takes a look around the league and sees big money flying everywhere. http://www.officialblackhawksauthority. ... rsey-c-22/. -- Canadas Nicole Vandermade won the Four Winds Invitational on Sunday for her first Symetra Tour title, closing with a 4-under 68 for a one-stroke victory. Denis Savard Blackhawks Jersey . Winners of two straight, the Flames will try to become the first team in 25 years to go three consecutive games without taking a penalty Saturday night in San Jose. Trevor Van Riemsdyk Blackhawks Jersey .28 mph. Logano will start on the front row next to Penske Ford teammate Brad Keselowski, who came in second Friday at 193.099. The Penske drivers swept the top two spots for the second straight race, reversing their qualifying finish in Phoenix a week ago.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - Dont worry, Kris Letang insists. The heat is coming. Sure, the Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman admits the New York Rangers dont invite quite the same animosity inside his teams locker room as the Philadelphia Flyers. The Rangers ended any shot of that tantalizing matchup when they beat the Flyers in seven games to set up a showdown with Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference semifinals starting Friday. That doesnt mean Letang expects the next two weeks to be devoid of drama. Far from it. "Im pretty sure the intensity will get really high at one point when we start," Letang said. "The emotion is always going to be part of the game and were going to have to control it the best we can." Its an internal battle the Penguins won during a taut first-round series against Columbus. Expected to send the inexperienced Blue Jackets home without much effort, Pittsburgh needed six trying games to advance. The way the Penguins figure it, thats a good thing. Forced to respond to adversity, they played what coach Dan Bylsma called their best 120 minutes this season to avoid the upset. "We keep coming and we keep coming, playing forward and playing in the offensive zone and grinding teams down with that play with that speed and quickness," Bylsma said. "Games 5 and 6 were our best at playing that way." The Penguins will need to do it four more times if they want to advance to the Eastern Conference finals for the second straight year. They split their four regular-season meetings with New York, all of them coming before the Olympic break. The Rangers hardly look like the team that was still struggling to find an identity when they last faced Pittsburgh in early February. Pittsburgh is no longer the patched-together unit that cruised to the Metropolitan Division title despite having stars Letang, Evgeni Malkin, Paul Martin and James Neal miss large chunks of the season due to injury. The Penguins are healthy. New York is hot. Five things to look for heading into Game 1. SLUMPING STARS: Pittsburgh captain and likely NHL MVP Sidney Crosby hasnt scored a goal in his past 10 playoff games. New York forward Rick Nash has just one in 19 post-season contests wearing a Rangers sweater. Whichever sttreak ends first could swing the balance of the series.dddddddddddd Crosby had six assists against the Blue Jackets, including one to Malkin in the first period of Game 6 in Columbus that gave the Penguins a 2-0 lead. Crosby knows he needs to take more chances. So does Nash, who can live with the drought as long as the Rangers keep it going. "Thats all that matters," Nash said. "Im going to try to keep getting my game going." LUNDQVIST VS. FLEURY: New Yorks Henrik Lundqvist and Pittsburghs Marc-Andre Fleury are the two winningest goaltenders in the regular season over the past five years, combining for 334 victories. Yet Lundqvist has yet to lift the Rangers past the conference finals while Fleury has struggled in the playoffs since helping the Penguins win the Stanley Cup in 2009. Both had their wayward moments in the first round. Both responded with brilliant play. Whoever gets hot — and stays hot — will give his team the upper hand. POWERLESS POWER PLAY: The Rangers went just 3 for 29 on the power play against Philadelphia, ending the series by failing to score 21 straight times with the man advantage. Not exactly the recipe to hang with the Penguins, who had the NHLs best power play during the regular season and was a solid 4 for 15 against the Blue Jackets while adding a pair of short-handed goals in the process. GENOS BACK: Like Crosby, Malkin was in the midst of a lengthy goal drought before coming up with his second career playoff hat trick in the clincher against the Blue Jackets. The rust that came with missing the final three weeks of the regular season appeared to vanish as he lit up Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky in Game 6. Playing alongside Crosby at times to try to shake loose the cobwebs, Malkin got hot. Expect to see the two MVPs on the ice frequently against New York. NEW YORK MINUTE: Game 1 marks the middle of a busy stretch in which the Rangers will play five times in seven days. Thats fine by them considering it beats the alternative of watching from home. "Now were in the middle of it and were in the battle," New York forward Brad Richards said. "This is when it gets real fun." ___ AP Sports Writer Ira Podell in New York contributed to this report.
