TORONTO -- James Reimer appeared in 207 regular-season games for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Kevin Byard Youth Jersey .He is a former Maple Leaf now.When the Florida Panthers goaltender dons his pads at the Air Canada Centre on Thursday night, he will be playing against the Maple Leafs for the first time.It will be fun to start here and hopefully steal two points, Reimer said on Wednesday.The Panthers are making their second visit of the season to the ACC. They lost 3-2 there on Oct. 27 with No. 1 goalie Roberto Luongo making the start.The visit to the ACC brings back memories for Reimer who was traded to the San Jose Sharks on Feb. 27 and signed a five-year deal with the Panthers in the offseason,Youre sitting there remembering the times that this or that happened, this game or that game, Reimer said. Hopefully this time we can get a win.Frederik Andersen is expected to start in goal for Toronto on Thursday.Both team won on Tuesday.The Panthers (8-7-1) defeated the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 in overtime, giving Montreal goaltender Carey Price his first loss of the season and ending the Habs 10-game home winning streak. The Panthers have won two in a row since the first two games of the season.The Maple Leafs (7-6-3) defeated the Nashville Predators 6-2 with James van Riemsdyk scoring three goals and adding an assist with linemate Tyler Bozak earning four assists.The Maple Leafs are 6-2 at home.We want to make this a tough place to come, van Riemsdyk said. You earn that reputation by how you play at home every night. You just want to find some consistency, whether its (with the lineup) or whatever the case may be. I think were doing a good job of paying attention to detail. We have some skill and with that combination, it can lead to good things. When you get on a roll, the crowd gets more into it.Aaron Ekblad scored the overtime winner for the Panthers on Tuesday, breaking his own stick on the shot. The slow-rolling puck was then deflected into the goal by a Montreal player.Youll take those when you can get them, the 20-year-old said. Theres plenty of times when it should go in and wont, and Ive been feeling that so far this season for sure. Maybe a few of us or the team havent gotten those bounces but now that we did, we feel confident that we can take that with us.Panthers coach Gerard Gallant hopes the goal could be the start of a good stretch for Ekblad.Hes had a tough go so far, Gallant said. Aarons a guy that gets a lot of points. Hes got three goals so far, he wants to get more points and get more on the board. Sometimes a goal like that will turn things around.Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock continues to adjust his defense, which has been prone to breakdowns in the defensive end of the rink.Babcock said that Connor Carrick, who did not play in the previous two games, will return to the lineup against the Panthers with Martin Marincin being left out. Babcock said there was no message to Carrick by sitting him out.I dont like guys to try and read my mind, I tell them exactly what Im thinking, Babcock said. Connors a good player and weve talked to him about staying out of too many physical confrontations, using his skating and his skill more. Ryan Tannehill Titans Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. Earl Campbell Titans Jersey . The Oilers come in having lost five in a row (0-4-1) and 16 of their last 20 games, dropping a 2-1 decision to the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. http:///...Casey-Womens-Jersey/ . -- Matt Ryan needed one of the best games of his career to lead the Falcons and their depleted offence out of their three-game losing streak last week. The story till thenEver since the heady days of the 1980s and 90s, when PT Usha commanded the Asian Games with her performances and made fourth place at the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics, Indias search for its next star athlete tended to focus on the track. The countrys most successful and recognisable female track stars had eased themselves gradually into retirement, and while their persevering successors did well at the Asian level, they went no higher. Little attention was paid to a heptathlete from Kerala who had decided to switch to the long jump and triple jump.A double gold winner at the National Games, Anju Bobby George held national records for both events. An ankle injury had kept her out of the 2000 Sydney Olympics and public attention, but from 2001, still under the radar, she was making the biggest strides in her career along with her husband and coach, Bobby George. A long jump gold medal at the 2002 Busan Asian Games and a rise up the international rankings offered signs of what was to come.The moment After a season in Europe with her husband-coach and a spell of training with world long jump champion Mike Powell, George made it to the 2003 World Championships final on a cold and drizzly August evening at Paris Stade de France in Saint-Denis. The qualifiers had cut the defending champion Fiona May of Italy and the 2002 Commonwealth champion Elva Goulbourne of Jamaica out of the fray. The finals field featured world champion heptathlete Eunice Barber of France, and Olympic medallist and European champion Tatyana Kotova of Russia. But Georges closest rival over the six-jump final was to be Jade Johnson of Britain, the silver medallist at the Manchester Commonwealth Games, where George had taken bronze.Georges 6.61m on her first jump was improved by Johnsons 6.63m and pushed her to fourth position. On jump No. 5, she thought she had been flat. I dont know how I landed, my legs were in a tangle, I thought, she said. On landing, she loooked stricken, her head dropped and she hit the sand in frustration. A.J. Brown Jersey. When the numbers appeared, they showed 6.70m, four centimetres short of the national record and her seasons best. But ahead of Johnson, into third place and medal contention.When Johnson couldnt match that over her next three jumps, George had made her big leap into Indian sporting history, becoming the first Indian to win a medal at the World Championships.The reaction We always had a dream, the dream of taking Indian athletics away from the routine sob stories. Of winning a big medal for our country. We had to achieve that, no matter how hard it was. - Bobby George, Anjus coach and husbandExpert view She still had a lot more in her. She had great jumping ability and way better landing than I had. She needed more speed and I didnt have enough time to teach her that. She was sure of herself when she was on the field. - Mike Powell, world long jump record holderThe story since After Paris, Anju Bobby George remained Indias most successful medal winner on the world stage. At the Athens Olympics in 2004, she made the finals and broke the national long jump record with 6.83m, which still stands. In 2005, she won a long jump silver at the World Athletics Final in Monte Carlo. Nine years later that was upgraded to gold because of a drugs test failed by the gold medallist Tatyana Kotova.After Anjus retirement, Indias performances in track and field have grown with promising consistency, if not with world medals. At the 2012 London Olympics, discus thrower Vikas Gowda made the finals and race walker KT Irfan finished tenth and broke the national record in the 20km walk. Indias 4x400m womens relay team are once again amongst the top two teams in Asia along with the Chinese. Yet a world-class medallist and a breakout star is still to be found.
