ways been the ace up the sleeve for Canadian Antworten

SYLVAN LAKE, Alta. - Sven Baertschi knows he has to back up a smart decision and a pivotal goal with many more of both to be a regular in the NHL.The Calgary Flames forward scored with nine seconds remaining in the second period Wednesday to deadlock a pre-season game against the Arizona Coyotes. After a scoreless third, Curtis Glencross scored the overtime winner for Calgary in a 4-3 victory in Sylvan Lake, Alta.Baertschi came off his final major junior season to join the Flames playing out the string in 2012. Calgarys first-round pick and the No. 13 selection in 2011 inflated expectations with three goals in his first five games with the team.The 21-year-old Swiss forward has played more games in the American Hockey League than with the parent club in the two seasons since then.When Brian Burke joined the Flames a year ago as president of hockey operations, he wasnt complimentary of Baertschi with comments like big holes and lack of commitment.I realized a little while ago now, coming into the league, its a different game and every decision you make has got to be the right decision, Baertschi said. Ive been working on it really hard and doing a lot of video. Its the little details out there I want to do right.I think Im making some really good decisions with the puck. Im not being selfish out there, but Im trying to hold onto the puck a little longer. Its something Ive been working on all summer, so its paying off now.I want to prove I can play in this league.Sylvan Lake won this years Kraft Hockeyville contest, which included a grant of $100,000 for arena upgrades, as well as the right to host an NHL pre-season game. The community of 13,000 is just west of Red Deer.With a capacity of just under 1,000, the Sylvan Lake Multi-Plex was full and speckled with a few blue Oilers jerseys among red Flames shirts.Local products Glencross and defenceman Kris Russell added to the sense of occasion by combining on the overtime winner.Glencross, who grew up in Prevost, re-directed Russells shot from the blue-line for a power-play goal at 3:50. Russell is from nearby Caroline.The roof of the aging Sylvan Lake Arena next door to the Multi-Plex collapsed in January. The city intends to raise $2 million for a multiplex redevelopment project.Russ and I both skated in the old barn quite a bit back in the day, Glencross said. He made a great shot and I got lucky enough to get my stick on it.Deryk Engelland and Brian McGrattan also scored for the Flames, who are 2-1-0 in the pre-season.I told the players this morning remember those people coming to the game, they had to fight real hard to get this game, Flames head coach Bob Hartley said.Im sure there were lots of other great cities that could have this game and since its very close to our market, I think we owed this game to the fans.B.J. Crombeen had a goal and an assist and Matt Kassian and Joe Vitale also scored for Arizona. Defenceman Chris Summers had two assists, but was serving a holding penalty when Glencross scored the winner.Calgary killed off three Arizona power-play chances in the third period and to start overtime.Arizona goalie Mike McKenna stopped 25 of 28 shots through two periods in his first pre-season action. Brendan Burke turned aside seven of eight in the third and overtime. Burke is the son of Arizona goaltending coach Sean Burke, who played 18 seasons in the NHL.After 11 saves on 14 shots, Calgarys Joni Ortio was replaced after two periods by Doug Carr, who stopped all 12 he faced in the third and extra period.McKenna got a piece of Baertschis sharp-angled shot as the second period wound down, but the puck trickled under the goaltenders arm and into the net.A game like tonight, I think I was really comfortable and didnt make too many bad decisions, Baertschi said.For me, one of the things Ive been working on is figuring out when to pass and when to shoot. Thats a big part of decision making. At that point, I knew I didnt have any support coming from behind and it went in and I was happy.Arizona led 3-2 at 3:06 when Brandon Gormleys shot from the top of the face-off circle deflected off Crombeens leg and into Calgarys net.Flames enforcer McGrattan scored at 1:59 when he banked in a goal-mouth pass from Markus Granlund.With Calgary trailing 2-0, Edmonton native Engelland threaded a high wrist shot through traffic to halve the deficit with a power-play goal at 19:06.Arizonas Vitale batted a rebound out of the air by Ortio at 12:58. Kassian, another Edmontonian invited to Arizonas camp on a try-out contract, also scored on a rebound from the slot at 8:56.The Coyotes finished one spot out of a playoff berth last season at 37-30-15, while the Flames were well out of the post-season at 35-40-7. We all know and it doesnt really mean nothing right now, but we played 49 games last year decided by one goal, Hartley said.I keep repeating to our guys, we have to keep making big strides and learning to win those types of games. Come Game 1 of the regular season, whatever we will have done here as a result will not count, but if we can learn those little details well be a better team.Wednesdays pre-season game was the first of three in as many days for the Flames, who host the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday in Calgary and play in Vancouver on Friday.The Coyotes are in San Jose on Friday to face the Sharks and are in Vancouver on Monday.

Air Max 1 Sale Canada .Y. - Through three quarters, the Brooklyn Nets could not shake the NBAs worst team.Every Grey Cup week serves as a barometer for the Canadian Football League as to where it sits in the national consciousness, its strengths and its challenges. As the final Grey Cup under outgoing commissioner Mark Cohon, it’s fair to look back and say his eight-year run has marked a period of stability and growth for the CFL. Since Cohon took office, there have been five stadiums either built, refurbished or that are underway right now. A possible sixth in the works as talks continue between the Toronto Argonauts and Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment about a possible move to BMO Field. The CFL is in the first year of a new television deal that pays it handsomely in comparison to the one that expired at the end of last season. Cohon is the first commissioner of any significant duration in a generation not to have a team go bankrupt during his term and the great threat of the NFL’s potential move into Toronto has never seemed less likely in the past 25 years than it does today. That said, there are some clouds on the horizon that the CFL needs to address quickly in order to sustain the overall momentum it’s enjoyed over the past decade or so. First and foremost of those is Toronto, where the Argonauts have rarely been as less relevant than they are today, buried under the attention paid to the city’s other pro sports franchises and without a venue that allows them to attract fans through a live game experience. Then there is Montreal, a great comeback story for the CFL since returning to the league in 1996, which has seen attendance dip in recent seasons and drew just 15,000 fans to a playoff game two weeks ago.dddddddddddd Staying with attendance, this week in Vancouver marks the first non-sold-out Grey Cup game in at least a decade, which is the kind of conversation you don’t want out there during your championship week celebration. But perhaps the most important thing the CFL needs to address is the product itself. The CFL game this past year was more defensive, less explosive and less exciting than it used to be. There are all kinds of theories why, from expansion to injured quarterbacks to changes in officiating or the composition of rosters as part of a new CBA. Whatever it is, the CFL needs to solve it and fast. Those claims that CFL fans love to make about their game being more exciting and wide open than the four-down game right now don’t apply anymore and it’s hard to build a younger generation of fans when your product suffers not just in terms of star power in comparison to the NFL, but in entertainment value, as well. A more exciting game has always been the ace up the sleeve for Canadian football and its fans, but right now that’s not a card it can play. These are not the bad old days when the CFL leapt from crisis to crisis, but nor is it a time the league can afford to rest on the relative stability it has ridden to get here. ' ' '
