After getting outplayed in a pair of close road losses

Postby lw789 » Tue May 09, 2017 1:56 am

After getting outplayed in a pair of close road losses, the Colorado Avalanche hope to regain a series lead when they return home to face the Minnesota Wild in Game 5 tonight. Colorado scored nine times en route to winning the first two games of this Western Conference first round series, but the Wild evened the best-of-seven set with a pair of defensive-minded victories on home ice. The game can be seen live on TSN at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt. Minnesota notched a 1-0 overtime victory in Game 3 at Xcel Energy Center and then posted a 2-1 win on Thursday to knot the series at two games apiece. A switch in net has been part of the equation in getting Minnesota back in this series, but a better overall team effort on defense also has helped. Ilya Bryzgalov, the loser in Games 1 and 2, faced 45 shots in 99 minutes of action over Games 1 and 2, while Darcy Kuemper has seen just 48 pucks fired his way in 150 minutes of work. Kuemper relieved Bryzgalov in Game 2 and posted a 22-save shutout when called upon to start Game 3. The 23-year-old rookie then faced only 12 shots to post the victory on Thursday. The 12 shots allowed were a postseason club record for the Wild and the second-fewest amount of shots yielded by a team in a playoff game since 2008, behind only the 10 given up by Calgary on April 15, 2008. "We spent a lot of time in their zone, but I think were doing well without the puck. Were doing a better job of denying their speed," Wild forward Zach Parise said. Charlie Coyle and Jared Spurgeon each scored once to help Kuemper earn the win. "Ive kind of learned the importance of showing confidence in yourself because I think the players feed off that a little bit," Kuemper said. "It relaxes them in the defensive zone, but its easy to do when theyre playing the way they are in front of me." Ryan OReilly registered the lone goal for Colorado, while Semyon Varlamov stopped 30 shots in the setback. Avalanche forwards Gabriel Landeskog, Nathan MacKinnon and Paul Stastny each were held without a point in Games 3 and 4 after giving Minnesota fits in the first two contests. Stastny had three goals and four assists in Games 1 and 2, MacKinnon notched a goal and six helpers in those outings and Landeskog posted three goals. Landeskog, Colorados young captain, hopes a change of venue can get the clubs offense back on track. "We know that were strong at home," Landeskog said. "Were just going to go home and regroup and get back to work on Saturday." Matt Duchene took part in an optional morning skate Saturday but will not play tonight. The Avalanches leading scorer has been out since damaging the MCL in his left knee when he ran into a teammate against San Jose on March 29. Head coach Patrick Roy will wait to see how Duchenes knee responds after todays initial practice and will have a further update on Sunday. The Avs, Central Division champions and the second seed in the West, were 26-11-4 on home ice during the 2013-14 regular season. Minnesota was just 17-17-7 on the road. Minnesotas Matt Cooke served the first contest of his seven-game suspension for kneeing Colorados Tyson Barrie in Game 3. Barrie is out four-to-six weeks with a sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee. Game 6 of this set is scheduled for Monday in Minnesota. If necessary, Colorado will host Game 7 on Wednesday.

HARROGATE, England -- Marcel Kittel of Germany won the first stage of the Tour de France for a second straight year after a late crash brought down British rival Mark Cavendish in the presence of royals on Saturday. Kittel, who earned four Tour stages last year, won the 190.5-kilometre (118-mile) run in mainly bucolic Yorkshire countryside from Leeds to Harrogate. The German raised his arms skyward and cried after he edged Peter Sagan of Slovakia in second, and Ramunas Navardauskas of Lithuania in third. "I am incredibly proud of this victory," Kittel, a Team Giant-Shimano rider who also won two Giro dItalia stages in May, said through a translator. "It happened pretty easily. It was like coming out of a tunnel. I was able to accelerate like never before. "Its really awesome. Deja vu, yeah." Christian Meier of Langley, B.C., was the top Canadian, finishing 141st in 4:44:07, while Svein Tuft, also from Langley, placed 163rd in the same peloton. The two favourites for victory in the three-week race, Alberto Contador and Chris Froome, finished safely in the trailing pack that clocked the same time as Kittel. With fewer than 400 metres to go, and the speedsters rushing ahead, Cavendish veered slightly to his left, tilted his head and bumped into Australias Simon Gerrans. The two crashed alone, with Cavendish landing hard on his right shoulder. Cavendish got up gingerly and cruised over the finish line -- cradling his right arm. X-rays revealed he separated his right shoulder, a Tour statement said. Omega Pharma QuickStep said in a separate statement that a decision about whether he will continue the race will be made on Sunday morning. "Im gutted about the crash today," Cavendish said in the statement. "It was my fault. Ill personally apologize to Simon Gerrans as soon as I get the chance. In reality, I tried to find a gap that wasnt really there. I wanted to win today." Many British fans were hoping for a win by Cavendish, a native of the Isle of Man, whose mother is from Haarrogate.ddddddddddddPrime Minister David Cameron, Princes William and Harry, and Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, were on hand among throngs of British fans who lined the route -- a testament to the cycling craze in the U.K. England hosts the first three stages of this 101st Tour before riders enter France on Tuesday. In all, the 198 riders are to cover 3,664 kilometres (2,277 miles) of road before the July 27 finish in Paris. Stage 2 on Sunday covers 201 kilometres from York to Sheffield, in southern Yorkshire. Cavendish previously said that winning the first Tour stage was his main goal this year. He was hoping to capture his first yellow jersey and his 26th Tour stage win. "Its sad because he (Cavendish) was racing in front of the home country," Sagan said. Added Kittel: "I hope he gets well soon. Im looking forward to seeing him on the race tomorrow ... its not nice to have Mark crash. Nobody wants that." A second German excelled on the English roads: Veteran Jens Voigt took the polka-dot jersey as the races best climber, after getting out early on a three-man breakaway that first cleared three low-grade hills including Buttertubs pass. At 42, the Trek Factory Racing rider is the oldest competitor this year: This is his 17th Tour, equaling the record. The nervous first day included more mishaps. Untold tens of thousands of fans turned out in such big numbers that a train service shuttle between the start and finish towns was crammed, and some had to wait for 90 minutes or even longer to get aboard -- or gave up altogether. Yorkshire, the largest county in England, has paid richly for the right to host the Tour. The peloton sped by abbeys in ruins and sights like 14th century Bolton Castle, near Leyburn, before finishing in Harrogate, known for its spas. Nearly three dozen countries are represented at this Tour, led by France with 44 riders. Its the second time cyclings greatest race has begun in Britain, though the Tour also crossed the English Channel for stages in 1974 and 1994.
