BUFFALO, N. Marcus Cannon Jersey
.Y. - All of a sudden, goalie Jhonas Enroth and the Buffalo Sabres arent the pushovers they were to start the season.After sweeping a two-game series against the then-NHL leading Montreal Canadiens last weekend, the Sabres put the clamps on the high-scoring Tampa Bay Lightning.Enroth stopped 26 shots through overtime and then two more in the shootout in securing a 2-1 victory Tuesday night.Obviously, the confidence is a little bit higher now, Enroth said. We beat a couple of great teams the last couple of games, so we know we can beat every team in the league.Enroth improved to 5-1 in his past six starts, a stretch in which hes allowed just nine goals.Zemgus Girgensons forced overtime by chipping in a rebound with 3:54 remaining, a little more than six minutes after Tampa Bays Ondrej Palat opened the scoring. And then Buffalos Cody Hodgson — with a backhander — and Tyler Ennis — with a snap shot just inside the left post — scored on their shootout chances.Buffalo (9-14-2) improved to 6-1 in its last seven, a stretch that began after the team opened the season 3-13-2.Part of getting better is that resiliency, to keep going and keep going, coach Ted Nolan said.The Lightning (17-6-3), coming off a 6-3 win over the New York Rangers on Monday night, entered the game leading the NHL with 90 goals and tied for the league lead with 36 points.They instead started flat by mustering just two shots in the first period. And they lacked finish in the shootout in having a four-game winning streak snapped.Palat was stopped on Tampa Bays first attempt, when he attempted to slip the puck through Enroths legs. Ryan Callahan had his snap shot turned aside by Enroths blocker.I thought we played well enough to win the hockey game and we didnt, Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. They score that goal with, what, 4 minutes left? That probably doesnt happen, either.The teams meet again at Tampa Bay on Thursday.This one turned with a pair of momentum shifts in the final 10 minutes of the third period.Palats goal came on a nifty passing play that began with Nikita Kucherovs no-look pass to Tyler Johnson streaking up the right wing. Driving deep into the corner, Johnson fed the puck into the middle, where Palat stuffed it in.The Sabres finally cashed in following a pair of chances, with Girgensons tying goal coming with 3:54 left.Following a faceoff to the right of the net, the Sabres worked the puck to Tyler Myers at the blue line, where he rifled a rising shot on goal. Evgeni Nabokov made the initial save but was unable to control the rebound. The puck bounced to Girgensons, who flipped it over an off-balance Nabokov, who was falling backward.Honestly, I thought I had it because it hit my ribs, and thats why I was leaning back, said Nabokov, who made 21 saves. I thought I had it. And then I saw the puck fly out. So thats when I needed longer arms, I guess.Girgensons goal came immediately after Nabokov made a big stop on Brian Flynn, who was set up alone in front by Brian Gionta.Lightning captain Steven Stamkos nearly settled it with 5 seconds left in regulation. Rounding into the left circle, Stamkos snapped a shot through a crowd and hit the far post. The puck caromed back off Enroths shoulder and fell into the crease, where the goalie smothered it.NOTES: Sabres D Josh Gorges played after missing seven games with a knee injury. ... Lightning rookie LW Jonathan Drouin, with one assist in his past seven games, was a healthy scratch. ... Girgensons is the surprise leader in the NHL All-Star game fan vote with 399,356, nearly double that of Pittsburghs Sidney Crosby (218,672). Girgensons, a second-year player, has credited the surge to fans clicking away online back home in Latvia. The only limit applied by the NHL is that fans can vote only 10 times a day. ... Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli sat among NHL scouts in the press box. Donta Hightower Patriots Jersey
. Carreno Busta broke his opponent five times in the match, but also lost his serve three times in the second set before prevailing in the tiebreaker. Both players struggled with their first serve, as Carreno Busta landed just 51 per cent of his to 47 per cent for Kukushkin. Nate Solder Jersey
. Osasunas Alvaro Cejudo drove the ball onto the crossbar in the fifth minute and his team squandered several long-range strikes before he was denied one-on-one by goalkeeper Jaime Jimenez in the 50th. http://www.patriotsfanaticstores.com/authentic-logan-ryan-patriots-jersey/
. Ashton scored a hat trick -- giving him 13 goals in 16 AHL games this season -- to power the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Lake Erie Monsters in AHL action on Sunday.ARE, Sweden -- Olympic champion Mikaela Shiffrin won a World Cup slalom on Saturday to retain her season-long title with one race remaining. In her first slalom race since taking Olympic gold, the 18-year-old American led from start to finish just as she did at Sochi two weeks ago. Shiffrin had a combined two-run time of 1 minute, 50.66 seconds, 0.60 ahead of Maria Pietilae-Holmner of Sweden. Another Swede, Anna Swenn-Larsson, got her first career podium finish in third, 1.50 back. Shiffrin earned 100 World Cup points for her fourth victory of the season and moved 130 clear of Frida Hansdotter of Sweden, who placed fourth. Five days before her 19th birthday, Shiffrin, who is from Vail, Colorado, now has Olympic and world championship gold medals and two World Cup titles in her specialist event. In a tight race for the oveerall World Cup title, Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany retook the standings lead from Anna Fenninger of Austria, who does not race slalom. Josh Kline Patriots Jersey
. Hoefl-Riesch placed seventh, trailing Shiffrin by 3.26, to earn 36 race points. She moved 29 ahead of Fenninger as she seeks to repeat her 2011 overall title, which she won by just three points from American Lindsey Vonn. The final four races are scheduled next week at Lenzerheide, Switzerland. Shiffrin made the slalom finale next Saturday meaningless, with Hansdotter dropping from second-fastest in the first run. Second-run racers coped with steadily falling snow and poor visibility after morning sunshine lit the first-leg course. Shiffrin had the advantage of the second-leg gate-setting being designed by her personal coach on the U.S. team, Roland Pfeifer.
