Gordon jumped, lost the ball in the air, from MJL456's blog

NASHVILLE, Tenn. Torrey Mitchell Jersey . -- The Philadelphia Flyers are the hottest team in hockey.Wayne Simmonds scored two power-play goals and Philadelphia beat the Nashville Predators 4-2 on Sunday night to win its fifth consecutive game.Playing in front of a sellout crowd, the Flyers (14-10-3) earned their second road victory in two days against a Central Division team. They defeated the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 on Saturday.The Predators (11-9-4) lost in regulation for only the second time in 12 home games this season.Weve got everything clicking. Our penalty kill has done a great job, our power play has scored some big goals and (goalie Steve Mason) has been standing on his head every night, Flyers defenseman Michael Del Zotto said. At the start of the year, wed have one good game and kind of get complacent. Now were just keeping our foot on the gas. We keep playing well, playing as five-man units.Simmonds, who leads the Flyers with 13 goals, scored twice against what had been a stingy Nashville penalty-kill at home. The Predators did not allow a power-play goal in their first 10 home games, but have given up three in their last two games.Hes doing what he does every night, Flyers coach Dave Hakstol said. If theres a better guy in the league net-front, whether its on power play or 5-on-5, I dont know who that is.What I really like about Simmer is that hes at net-front, hes scoring goals, hes on the power play. But hes a hard-nosed, 200-foot player.Michael Raffl gave Philadelphia its third one-goal lead with 3:23 left in the second period. He bulled his way past Nashville defenseman Mattias Ekholm, cut across the crease and slipped the puck beyond the reach of goalie Juuse Saros for a 3-2 advantage.Chris VandeVelde capped the scoring with an empty-net goal with 26.3 seconds remaining.Colin Wilson tied it at 2 for the Predators with 8:41 to go in the second, lifting a short-range backhand past Mason. Mike Fisher sent Wilson in alone on goal with a nice cross-ice pass from just inside the blue line.Nashville has 35 goals in the second period this season, one fewer than the team has totaled in the first and third combined.It was a tough weekend for the Predators, who lost to New Jersey 5-4 in overtime Saturday after the Devils rallied from a three-goal deficit in the third period.Last night was a great effort until the third period and we had a meltdown there, Nashville forward Filip Forsberg said Sunday. That cant happen, and today it was kind of the opposite. We started off not good and then we kind of got going as the game went. ... Everyone needs the points no matter where you are in the standings and the inspiration level has to be higher from the start.Simmonds second power-play goal of the night put the Flyers up 2-1 with 13:13 left in the second period. Simmonds stationed himself in front of the Nashville net and stuffed a shot under Saros.The Predators tied it 1-all with 16:43 left in the second when Calle Jarnkrok scored his fourth goal of the season. Jarnkrok redirected Ekholms drive from the blue line past Mason.The Flyers converted on their second power play of the game to take a 1-0 lead with 1:48 left in the opening period. Brayden Schenn ripped a shot from the faceoff circle, and Simmonds goal-mouth deflection bounced off the knob of Saros stick and into the net.Game notes Nashville forward Reid Boucher, picked up off waivers from New Jersey on Saturday, made his Predators debut. ... Philadelphias Claude Giroux got his 367th career assist, moving past Rod BrindAmour into sixth place in franchise history. ... The game marked the fourth of 13 sets of back-to-back games for the Predators this season. ... The Flyers played their seventh set of back-to-back games, and will play another one next weekend. ... Philadelphia has beaten Nashville four straight times. The teams meet again on Dec. 19.UP NEXTFlyers: Host the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.Predators: Host the Colorado Avalanche on Tuesday night. Jeff Petry Jersey . Reassurance came from Paul Tesori, his caddie and close friend whose newborn son is in intensive care in a Florida hospital. "Paul sent me a text this morning, just told me he loved me and wanted to go out and fight as hard as I would any other day," Simpson said Sunday after doing just that. Guy Lapointe Jersey . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. http://www.canadiensauthority.com/authentic-serge-savard-canadiens-jersey/ . The No. 1-ranked Nadal tweaked his back warming up for the Australian Open final, which he lost almost four weeks ago in a major upset against Stanislas Wawrinka. His first stop after the layoff is the clay in Rio as he tests the back and tries to stay healthy for the French Open in three months. SALT LAKE CITY -- What started as an easy night on the court turned into another tough fourth quarter for the Utah Jazz, who blew a 19-point lead and were outscored in the period for the third straight game.Gordon Hayward scored 28 points and the Jazz held on for a 112-105 victory over the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday night, their seventh win in eight games.Its human nature, Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. When you have some separation, sometimes its easier to let down. Its something that really good teams figure out a way to overcome. I dont think were there, but we did find a way tonight.Rudy Gobert scored a career-high 22 points and had 11 rebounds and blocked four shots for the Jazz, who recovered after the Suns erased a 23-point lead to tie it at 103.Ive been working hard since I got here, Gobert said. I always want to improve, thats the main thing for me. Thats what Im going to keep doing.Hayward had 11 third-quarter points to reach 20-plus points for the ninth consecutive game -- the first Jazz player to do so since Carlos Boozer in 2007-08.The Jazz sprinted out to a 25-10 lead thanks to an 8-0 run and never trailed. They led 65-45 at halftime after Haywards pull-up 3-pointer highlighted a half-closing 11-2 stretch. The 65 points matched a Jazz season high for a half.Devin Booker scored 21 points for the Suns, who couldnt complete the comeback.That (second) unit came in and played selfless, Suns coach Earl Watson said. They gave up all their energy on defense and offensively they moved the ball, created the tempo and played amazing perimeter defense.TIP-INSSuns: Phoenix turned over the ball 13 times in the first half and Utah converted them into 19 points. ... The Suns made six 3-pointers after hitting 10 in the previous three games.Jazz: George Hill missed his fourth consecutive game with a sprained left big toe. ... Hill and Haywardd have played just five games together and the Jazz are 5-0 in those games. Jonathan Drouin Jersey. ... Rodney Hood did not return after halftime with a sore right hamstring.BACK ON THE BENCHSnyder was the latest member of the Jazz to be forced from a game due to a physical ailment. He missed Mondays game against the Lakers due to an illness, but returned Tuesday. Snyder said its the first time hes ever missed a game as an assistant or head coach in 20 years.It was strange, Snyder said. I had a small fever and then about midway through the fourth quarter, my fever jumped to over 103. So it was good I wasnt out there. It would have been unfair to the players and the staff.HEY HEY, HAYWARDHayward is averaging career highs in points and rebounds and is playing at an All-Star level. Watson played three seasons in Utah, Haywards first three seasons.He reminded me of a young Jerry West, Watson said. Gordon has it, man. ... I knew it, I could see it immediately. There was something special about him. The unique part about him is he can impact the game beyond scoring.I remember Gordon just had this unique way about him. It was his rookie year. We played the Lakers. ... Gordon Hayward ran a pick-and-roll going to his left, Kobe was chasing him. Gordon jumped, lost the ball in the air, jumped off the right leg, got the ball and dunked it. I was like, `Oh (shoot) this kid is special.QUOTABLEWe got to understand that the game is not over until it is finished and we believe that, Suns guard Leandro Barbosa said.UP NEXTSuns: Phoenix hosts a Pacers team it beat by 20 in Indiana in their last meeting on Nov. 18.Jazz: Utah hosts Golden State on Thursday in their first meeting since Kevin Durant joined the Warriors during the offseason.
