  • Game 18 lessons: Condon comes down to earth for a night - Sportsnet.ca
    take ownership for that If I make that save I think it s a different game Condon took to the bench for the third period It was the first time he d been pulled from a game in over a year as he hadn t been pulled once in the AHL with the Hamilton Bulldogs last season It was also Condon s first regulation loss in the NHL 6 1 2 Corsi for doesn t mean you score The shot attempts were 31 15 in favour of Montreal in the first period They were 59 21 after two Colorado had only recorded a single shot in the third period when Montreal s Tom Gilbert took a penalty 10 minutes and 12 seconds in We were dynamic tonight said Canadiens coach Michel Therrien After two periods we were down 4 1 with double the shots or triple the shots We had 33 against 11 and we were down 4 1 It was one of those nights You could say execution was lacking on Montreal s end as Subban did after the game Canadiens power play didn t deliver The Canadiens came into the game having recorded a power play goal in each of their last seven contests They went 0 4 against Colorado despite taking eight of their 40 shots with the man advantage Reto Berra on fire He came into the game leading the NHL s best save percentage and goals against average and he improved his numbers in Montreal Berra s appeared in eight games and started seven of them recording a 953 save percentage and a 1 50 goals against average And yet he s 4 3 0 Sorry this video is not available in your country region The Avalanche allowed 40 shots on net Saturday bringing the total Berra has faced to 233 They re going to have to cut that down if he s going to continue earning wins for them And Berra will be put to the test Starter Semyon Varlamov suffered a lower body injury in Boston Thursday He was phenomenal especially in the first period said Avalanche head coach and goaltending legend Patrick Roy Reto is playing with a lot of confidence and doing what we need from him We have two good goaltenders and we ll rely on both of them 2Fhockey 2Fnhl 2Fgame 18 lessons condon comes down to earth for a night 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS Too early to talk about a comeback for Carey Price 2 hours ago The time Michael Jordan carried Max Domi 2 hours ago Naked Eye vs Nerdy Guy Should Luca Sbisa be in Canucks top 6 2 hours ago NHL commissioner Gary Bettman s latest salary revealed 4 hours ago Hockey Central No need to rush Nylander 1 34 2 hours ago Weekend Takeaways Reimer becoming a valuable asset 5 hours ago A history of NHL goals from the other end of the ice 3 hours ago Hockey Central Bernier has to

  • Raptors' Carroll relieves weight off his shoulders in return - Sportsnet.ca
    the Raptors coaching staff forced him to stay home knowing the only truly effective treatment for plantar fasciitis is extended rest Sorry this video is not available in your country region Carroll didn t touch a basketball for 10 days and watched the games from his couch In hindsight it was probably good I wasn t on the bench I was going crazy Carroll says itching to get back on the floor and work towards fulfilling the four year 60 million contract he signed with the Raptors this off season The team is clearly much better defensively with Carroll in the rotation and he was sorely missed in all three of the games he sat out but perhaps none moreso than Tuesday s 111 109 loss to New York when the Raptors struggled to contain Knicks superstar Carmelo Anthony Watching man I hate it a lot Carroll says When you see guys like Carmelo go for 30 and you know you can impact and you can really help the team it s tough When the energy is down I feel like I can be the energy booster So it really hurt me a lot Carroll brought exactly that kind of energy early in the fourth quarter Friday night when he ambushed two Pelicans who thought they had an easy rebound under their own basket ripping the ball away and hitting a contested put back for two points and a foul He stalked away from that play pounding his chest as the building and his teammates went berserk That s just me out working them That s what I do I try to out work everybody on the court Carroll said I get the put back the crowd s really getting into it it was a good momentum play Carroll ended up playing more than 33 minutes in his return and likely would have seen more time if he didn t pick up his fifth foul midway through the fourth quarter which forced Casey to nail him to the bench Casey asked his 29 year old forward how he was feeling whenever he came to the bench and Carroll gave him the same positive answer each time he asked Not that Carroll s ever going to say anything less as he didn t complain about the injury at all until it grew unbearable a week and a half ago Part of the Raptors rehab strategy was to get Carroll enough rest so he wouldn t need to be held back from his usual amount of playing time I didn t want to come back and play 10 minutes and be on a minute restriction I want to come back and go full out Carroll said And I think coach and them did a great job They said once you come back you re coming back full strength Of course the process continues Carroll was saying all this while standing a little taller than he normally does as the Raptors have outfitted

  • West Coast Bias: New Calgary arena no simple task - Sportsnet.ca
    game against the Devils that were as needless as they were wrong We have been told what was said but will not repeat the words here Tootoo told the league that Burrows said some inappropriate things about his personal life and family and we are left to ponder Is Tootoo right for breaking the code and bringing this issue off the ice and into the public eye as Burrows criticized him for Or do we blame Burrows for saying some things that in the NHL game we once knew he would have thought twice about saying years ago Talk about unintended consequences this is one of the unwanted results of a game that used to police itself There was a time when Burrows would have had to answer for tasteless comments in a fight Not anymore however and many are happy about that evolution Meanwhile the hockey world gets dragged through the mud by a player who has pushed various envelopes throughout his career We re only lucky Tootoo hasn t publicly repeated exactly what was said We re going to guess that V P of Hockey Op s Colin Campbell will head up the conversation with Burrows What will he say It will start with Grow up Alex Sorry this video is not available in your country region THE JIG IS UP The goalie mafia is cracking in the same way omerta went by the wayside inside the cycling peleton There cyclists cracked one by one as those who were getting caught decided they weren t going to protect the drug cheats anymore So far goalies Jonathan Quick Devan Dubnyk Karri Ramo and Andrew Hammond have all admitted a preference to shrinking equipment over expanded nets agreeing that they could get by with more form fitting gear Also goalies turned analysts Mathieu Biron Greg Millen and Corey Hirsch have all admitted the Great Goalie Equipment Ruse had gone too far We sense a crew that does not want to be responsible for a history changing expansion of nets By far the worst idea Hammond says By far Sorry this video is not available in your country region THE MCDAVID EFFECT According to the ESPN com attendance web page the Edmonton Oilers are the seventh most popular road draw in the NHL this season behind the No 1 Rangers then Detroit Montreal Anaheim Toronto and Pittsburgh As a comparison their provincial rival Calgary Flames rank 26th about where Edmonton sat a year ago Obviously this is the Connor McDavid effect It will be interesting to see how far the Oilers fall in his absence though tickets that were purchased often by scalpers prior to McDavid s injury should cushion that descent PAPERING THE HOUSE I know Florida isn t a Western team but I had a Twitter exchange with some jacked up Panthers fans after firing off a tweet about the tiny crowd that watched Calgary play in Florida on Tuesday night Two nights later the BB T Center looked

  • Will Donaldson get long-term offer from Blue Jays this off-season? - Sportsnet.ca
    million Atlanta Braves Heyward is the youngest of this year s free agents by a mile no surprise given that in any listing of the Top 50 free agents this off season there are nine or maybe 10 under the age of 30 This is a product in part of the manner in which teams lock up their young core players Heyward is not quite the impact power bat many dream on but he makes decent contact 14th among all major league outfielders plays terrific defence and is an athlete The type of player a certain team used to win the World Series in 2015 in other words He ll get eight to 10 years from somebody QUIBBLES AND BITS As someone who cut their teeth in this business covering the CFL in Winnipeg and Calgary wouldn t cross the street to support the bad people who run the NFL and who still attends games as a paying customer it pains me to see the league so bereft of offensive talent that a 40 year old quarterback Henry Burris can be a finalist for Most Outstanding Player Not to take anything away from Burris but c mon is the talent level at the most important position in the game so thin that there is that little turnover No wonder CFL games have become more and more difficult to watch My friends at FanGraphs one of whom Kiley McDaniel just joined the Atlanta Braves front office last month always give me something to think about Jeff Sullivan one of their best put forth an interesting argument last week that used WAR to put a spin on one of the game s long running debates beyond the eye test provided by the Kansas City Royals just how important can an elite closer be to a team Bottom line Evidence exists that having a shutdown high leverage reliever can be worth more wins than WAR would suggest Read it and keep it in mind the next time you cavalierly dismiss the notion of taking one of Aaron Sanchez or Roberto Osuna and simply declaring them closers ahead of spring training and let them go through spring accordingly It was a long 15 seconds of fame for Ronda Rousey but I guess we can lay to rest all that silliness about her place among the pantheon of athletes Again no sport that operates at the whim of one individual in this case Dana White can maintain legitimacy forever even if there is little if any critical media coverage of the organization Mixed martial arts will eventually go back to the corner studio and split into its component parts and leave even less of an imprint on the sports landscape than professional wrestling which at least understands there s no reason to take itself seriously It was some kind of run Dana But it s over Done THE ENDGAME Look I get that Jose Bautista can do no wrong and I m a big fan

  • Blue Jays prospects show promise at Arizona Fall League - Sportsnet.ca
    pressed to find a story more bizarre than Fields He s understandably raw but with plus speed and some natural instincts there are major league tools in tact He s also a high energy player and plus overall athlete who has taken well to centre field It will be an uphill battle for Fields bat to approach major league adequacy but he does enough things well that can help a big league ball club mainly with his legs that his progress will be worth following He s already handling himself remarkably well given his background Jeremy Gabryszwski RHP Gabryszwski continued to show more of what was on display in Dunedin this season a body that looks like it should be eating innings in the middle of a big league rotation with stuff that falls way short of that destination His 6 4 frame looks the part and his mechanics are clean but at 88 91 mph from the right side with limited movement and below average secondary pitches Gabryszwski doesn t offer the most exciting profile Chad Girodo LHP Girodo may not have the most exciting profile either but he has a chance to be successful in his niche thanks to a big sweeping curveball He comes at left handed hitters with a low almost sidearm slot making them very uncomfortable despite his mid 80 s fastball The development of his curveball will determine his success but he could be a usable piece Brady Dragmire RHP Dragmire fits the middle reliever profile perfectly with a mid 80 s slider with above average movement So far consistency with the slider and fastball command has limited him He s missing more bats than in the past and that trend will need to continue in order for him to have success as he s not exceptionally tall and 93 94 mph is no longer above average for a reliever Justin Shafer RHP Schafer is a former eighth rounder out of the University of Florida who has failed to miss bats as a professional a trend that continued in the desert With a low 90 s fastball and a slider that flashes average at best there s not a ton of room for growth His best bet is near the back of a bullpen but even that will require significant improvement 2Fbaseball 2Fmlb 2Fblue jays prospects show promise at arizona fall league 2F Join the Discussion EDITORS PICKS Entire Blue Jays coaching staff to return in 2016 2 days ago Estrada deal sets up remainder of Blue Jays off season 2 days ago Blue Jays re sign Marco Estrada to two year 26M deal 2 days ago Red Sox acquire closer Craig Kimbrel from Padres 2 days ago Blue Jays Donaldson wins 2015 Silver Slugger Award 3 days ago At the Letters Talking Blue Jays Estrada at Pitch Talks 3 days ago Blue Jays will have to ante up through trade or free agency 3 days ago Blue Jays players prospects draw early trade
