Detroit, MI (SportsNetwork. Justin Turner Jersey .com) - Tomas Tatar potted two goals and an assist as the Detroit Red Wings cooled off the hot Nashville Predators in a 5-2 victory on Saturday. Gustav Nyquist tallied a goal and an assist, Henrik Zetterberg and Kyle Quincey each scored and Pavel Datsyuk, Riley Sheahan and Nicklas Kronwall each had two assists. Detroit netminder Petr Mrazek turned aside 34-of-36 shots in the Red Wings third straight win. Mike Fisher and Mattias Ekholm each lit the lamp as Nashville had its five- game winning streak come to an end. The Predators also entered the contest with at least a point in each of their previous 10 games (8-0-2). Marek Mazanec made 18 saves in relief of Carter Hutton, who allowed three goals on just four shots. Hyun-Jin Ryu Jersey .What they got was a bevy of players chipping in to pick up the slack.Josh Smith scored 18 points and James Harden added 17 as the Rockets used a balanced scoring effort to outlast the Mavericks for a 99-94 victory. Fernando Valenzuela Jersey . A player confirmed to TSN on the condition of anonymity that he received his ballot yesterday. Another confirms hes been told to expect his shortly. "The unions executive committee insists a strike vote does not mean were pushing away from the table," the player said. "But we want the league to know were serious about our position.WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers started the 2014 season with plenty of question marks after a 2013 campaign that saw them win just three times.And while their 7-11 record this year means theyll miss the CFL playoffs for a third straight season and fifth time in the past six years, the Bombers did have some positives to point to as they cleaned out their lockers Sunday. One of them was finding a bonafide starting quarterback in Drew Willy.I think Drew answered that pretty early in the year, said slotback Clarence Denmark, the teams leading receiver with 65 catches for 1,080 yards and three touchdowns.He grew into a guy that were going to trust and a guy that we believe in. I think Drew is a good player and hes only going to get better.Willy was picked up in the off-season in a trade with Saskatchewan after the Bombers attempts to sign veteran quarterback Henry Burris and up-and-comer Zach Collaros didnt pan out.Although he only had four starts in two seasons with Saskatchewan, Willy guided the Bombers to a surprising 5-1 start — even if four of those victories were against poor-playing East Division teams.Willys quiet, confident leadership continued as he played through some injuries and only missed one full game. He left Saturdays game in Calgary late in the first half with what he said was an injury to his forearm that weakened his grip on the ball.He was replaced by rookie Robert Marve, who guided the club to an 18-13 win over the Stampeders that snapped Winnipegs eight-game losing skid.Willy, who turns 28 later this month, planned to return home to New Jersey and train hard during the off-season.Im going to watch every (film) clip that we have, work on different things thatll improve my play, said Willy, who completed almost 64 per cent of his passes for 3,769 yards with 14 TDs and 16 interceptions.Its a big off-season for me and Im going to come back, I think, definitely in the best shape and best mental state that I can possibly be in.Head coach Mike OShea said everyones job performance will be under review, including his own, but the quarterbacking corps was a bright spot.You go into a season with what people would describe as relatively unknowns and (wondering) how its going to work out, OShea said. Kenta Maeda Jersey. e feel weve got a very good quarterback stable. Brian Brohm, Robert Marve, Josh Portis and Drew Willy at the helm for the majority of the season.Its turned out well. That area has been addressed.The kicking game also more than met expectations.Rookie placekicker Lirim Hajrullahu was good on 40 of his 46 field-goal attempts, giving him a franchise-record 87 per cent success rate. He also tied the CFL rookie record that had been set by Justin Medlock in 2009.Im not fully satisfied because I still want to play, so no matter any accomplishments cant make up for not being in the playoffs, Hajrullahu said.He also took over the punting duties after Mike Renaud was injured and said hed like to do all the placekicking, punting and kickoffs next year. He told OShea that in his exit meeting and said the response was that hed come into training camp next year and compete.The Bombers have a big goal to strive for next year as Winnipeg is hosting the Grey Cup game, a championship they havent claimed since 1990.One area that will have to improve is Winnipegs defence, especially against the run. The team was at the bottom of the league in allowing an average of 135.9 rushing yards per game.The offensive line also needs work as Winnipeg gave up a league-high 71 sacks.Some Bombers pointed to a change in atmosphere as one of the biggest differences this season that made it fun to go to work, and work hard.I think heading into this season the focus was really changing the culture in the locker-room, said veteran offensive lineman Glenn January, one of the teams 16 potential free agents.I can tell you first-hand that mission was accomplished.And that was seen on the field, too.Just games that we were down, you could just see it, that we still had fight, Denmark said. No quit in these guys. I think that last game showed a lot of character about our team.Both players said the change began with OShea, a man who earned their respect.Its easy to go out and put it all on the line for a guy like that, Denmark said. Thats what its all about. Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
