NEW YORK -- The train ride back from Philadelphia after the New York Rangers one-goal
#1
NEW YORK -- The train ride back from Philadelphia after the New York Rangers one-goal loss to the Flyers in Game 4 wasnt all that long, yet long enough for them to shake off the disappointment. Chris Clark Jersey . At least that is what they said the day after. "Its gone now," goalie Henrik Lundqvist proclaimed Saturday of the 2-1 defeat that tied the series 2-2. "On the way home it was disappointing, and you try to learn something and come up with something that will help you moving forward, but then you let it go." The Metropolitan Division rivals will get right back at it Sunday at noon in the pivotal Game 5 at Madison Square Garden, where the clubs split the opening two games. They split again in Philadelphia, and neither team has won two straight. Someone will be facing elimination on Tuesday in Game 6 back in Philadelphia. If the series is stretched to the limit, the deciding game will be Wednesday in New York. "You try not to think too much about the consequences," Lundqvist said. "You just try to focus on your game and what you have to do, and enjoy it, tell yourself that its fun, because it is -- when youre winning." While the Rangers have lost 11 straight games when leading a series, they have come out OK recently in series that were tied 2-2. Four of New Yorks previous five matchups have been squared after four games, but although the Rangers went only 1-3 in those Game 5s they won three of four series. The Rangers have also come out on top in six of the past nine series in which they were tied 2-2, dating to the 1992 Patrick Division semifinals against New Jersey. "Its a pivotal game regardless of the outcome," forward Brian Boyle said. New York was stymied on Friday by Steve Mason, who made 37 saves in his first start in 13 days following what was believed to be a concussion. He played the final 7-plus minutes in relief of Ray Emery in the Rangers Game 3 win before getting the starting nod from coach Craig Berube. It was Masons first NHL playoff victory, and the Rangers expect to test him even more Sunday. "The teams that win Cups are the teams that have that urgency all the time," New York forward Brad Richards said. "Its impossible to have Game 1 like a Game 7. I have never seen it. "I dont think we went out and laid an egg (Friday) ... but we didnt win, so its not good enough. We get right back (Sunday). We dont have too much time to think about it, so thats good." The Rangers pressured Mason early, and took a brief 1-0 lead in the first period when they held a 16-6 edge in shots. But that was the only scoring for New York, which failed on all four power plays. "We can dissect this all we want," Richards said. "We played a pretty good hockey game. Thats good for us. Our 5-on-5 game is coming, and I thought we controlled a lot of play. There has got to be more. There are 100 ways to lose a hockey game." Richards said the team spent a large portion of Saturday morning before an optional on-ice practice working on ways to improve the power play that went 3-for-12 in the first two games but is 0-for-8 since. He credited the Flyers for making improvements to their penalty-killing and changing things up. "Weve definitely got to get some different things, different looks," Richards said. "They are blocking more shots, their lanes are a lot different. Now its our turn to up that and make them adjust again and try to score a goal." The Flyers will have a new look on defence on Sunday when defenceman Nick Grossmann sits out because of a right knee injury sustained in Game 4. Berube didnt announce who would play in his place, but veteran Hal Gill was alongside defenceman Mark Streit throughout practice Saturday. The 39-year-old Gill played in only six games this season and has yet to appear in this series. "This is what Ive been working to do," said Gill, who has played in 110 career playoff games in 16 NHL seasons. "Ive had it in my head over and over again. It will be nice to have it come to fruition on Sunday. "Weve got a guy banged up. If he cant play, thats what Ive been working for." The team that has scored first in the four games has lost three of them -- only the Rangers in Game 3 bucked the trend. The Flyers came back from an 0-2 deficit to win Game 2, the only time in four tries this season they have won in New York. Philadelphia rallied in the third period to win 11 times during the season. "Its not the ideal situation," Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds said. "Ideally, youd like to play with the lead. Its a best-of-three series now, so weve got to make sure were smart and were coming out strong." Lamarr Houston Jersey . Nainggolan scored his first Italian league goal at Bologna, in October 2010, and he also opened his Roma account there following his January move from Cagliari. The Belgium midfielder volleyed home Miralem Pjanics cross from close range eight minutes from time. Marcus Gilchrist Jersey . When the next inning rolled around Wednesday, though, Nationals manager Matt Williams sent Strasburg to the mound to face the top of the Dodgers order in what would become a 3-2 victory for Washington, the first time this season the No. http://www.footballtexansgearsshop.com/B...ml?cat=929 . LOUIS -- Julius Randle had 19 points and 15 rebounds, Aaron Harrison finished with 18 points and No.London, England (SportsNetwork.com) - Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo returned to practice on Thursday for the first time since suffering a back injury 10 days ago. As he usually does, Romo missed Wednesdays session as the Cowboys began preparations for this Sundays game against Jacksonville in London. He has skipped most Wednesday practices this season as part of his regular schedule to ease the workload on his surgically repaired back. Romo, who underwent surgery for a herniated disc in his back late last year, again injured his back in the third quarter of an overtime loss to Washington on Oct. 27, although he did return for the final series of regulation and Dallas lone possession of overtime. The Cowboys initially said Romo had a contusion, but further tests eventually revealed two transverse process fractures. The transverse process is a small bony projection off the right and left side of each vertebrae. Like any injury, we have to get out test it out and see what you can do, push it a little bit, said Romo, who indicated he still has soreness and will continue treatment each day. At the same time, you have to be smart. Romo missed last Sundays game against Arizona and Brandon Weeden struggled in a 28-17 loss to the Cardinals. Joel Heath Jersey. After Romo took part in the Cowboys meetings and walk-through at the hotel on Wednesday, Weeden took the first-team reps in practice. Weeden would again be the starter on Sunday if Romo is unable to play, but Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones expects his three-time Pro Bowl quarterback to be on the field. Im anticipating him playing, theres no reason to think that he wont, said Jones on Thursday. My expectations are for him to play. Romo was in pads while speaking with the media on Thursday and didnt appear comfortable, looking stiff at the podium. He didnt give any indication as to whether he would play on Sunday, saying only he would be taking a day-by-day approach. Its improving each day, he added. I think if we do something positive each day, theres a good chance. If youre always waiting until you feel great to play, youll only play a couple of games a year. You compete, you go play. Theres guys who are banged up every week and go play. No one cares (if youre hurt) when you step out on the field on Sunday, you just go out and play. If Romo is unable to play Sunday, hell have extra time to rest with the Cowboys on their bye next week.
