TORONTO -- The fastest team made a fast, strong first impression at the World Cup of Hockey. Yeezy Powerphase Kopen .With blazing speed and uncontainable skill, Team North America skated circles around Finland on the way to a 4-1 victory Sunday night at the World Cup of Hockey.Led by goals from Jack Eichel, Johnny Gaudreau, Jonathan Drouin and Nathan MacKinnon, the group of 23-and-under Americans and Canadians toyed with a proud Finnish national team that has the most Olympic medals since NHL players began participating.Were here to play, Gaudreau said. Hopefully, teams dont take us lightly. I think were a fast, speed, skilled team, and hopefully we can keep proving [to] people [that] we belong here.North America doesnt just belong in the elite tournament full of almost 200 of the best players in the world. It might be one of the most skilled from top to bottom. Four of the past five No. 1 picks were at their best Saturday night, offensively and defensively. Playing his first of what should be many games at his new home arena with the Toronto Maple Leafs, No. 1 pick Auston Matthews had an assist and showed he was ready to face NHL competition.I thought he was going to have a helluva game, and he did, coach Todd McLellan said. There was no fear of playing.Captain Connor McDavid, the 2015 No. 1 pick of the Edmonton Oilers, also had an assist and several nifty moves that confounded Finnish defenders.Much like Team Europe, a collection of players from eight European countries, North America made a great first impression after plenty of criticism about being a gimmick. North Americas blazing fast play in exhibition games made it the most intriguing part of the World Cup, and that fascination is only stronger now that it showed it can thrive when it counts.Just because were younger doesnt mean that were not as good or something like that, McDavid said. Its just we have a little bit less experience.Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Matt Murray made 24 saves but mostly had an easy night as North America outshot Finland 43-25, including an 18-6 domination in the second period.The second period was a cold shower for us, Finland coach Lauri Marjamaki said. They got better, they won every battle, they skate hard, they are so aggressive. ... such a great team.Pekka Rinne made 39 saves for Finland and struggled at times but also kept the game from turning into even more of a blowout.Goals came in every possible way: Eichels greasy rebound at the side of the net, Gaudreaus jumping, spinning deflection, Drouins toe drag and MacKinnons backhand-forehand move after he beat everyone else to the puck. North Americas apt goal song, Opposite of Adults, blared on the Air Canada Centre speakers all night.I think all four lines really brought something tonight, and everybody was out there kind of doing their part, Matthews said. We were utilizing our strengths, and I think we put them on their heels.Sometimes the pace was so quick that Gaudreau said players stood up on the bench in anticipation of the next fancy move. North America owned the puck against Finland, which had nine players back from the bronze-medal team in the 2014 Sochi Olympics.They really took it to us and showed their individual skill, but also as a team, they were extremely dangerous, Rinne said. Im not going to take anything away from them, but we werent ready to go. We made too many mistakes. We werent skating. That was the result.Valtteri Filppula scored the only goal for Finland late in the third period after the result was decided. McLellan said the lapse was a good teaching moment for his team and will help as the World Cup goes on.Russia is up next on Monday after a 2-1 loss to Sweden earlier Sunday. Despite Russia losing and North America winning, McDavid doesnt see his team as the favorite in the game.Russias a hockey giant, and theyre one of the best hockey nations in the world, McDavid said. Its going to be a good test for us. NMD R1 Zwart .

The Black Caps posted 281 for nine from their 50 overs, Marsh snaring two of the top four in six-over figures of 2-30, with Kane Williamson (60) top-scoring and Mitchell Santners late unbeaten 45 boosting the hosts total.Australia looked in trouble at 197 for six, despite a superb knock of 98 from 79 balls from David Warner, but Marsh (69 not out) and John Hastings (48no) got the tourists over the line with an unbroken 86-run seventh-wicket stand.Having won the toss and elected to bat, New Zealand would have been hoping for a mammoth score especially after some early fireworks from Brendon McCullum.The right-hander hit three sixes and two fours in his final innings in Wellington before his 12-ball cameo came to an end when Scott Boland clipped his off stump with his score on 28.Martin Guptill was below his usual explosive best and, when he went for 31 and Henry Nicholls followed 11 balls later, the hosts had slipped to 95 for three in the 18th over.Williamson and Grant Elliott steadied the ship, though, the former manoeuvring the ball on both sides of the wicket to bring up his fifty off 71 balls, and they were in good shape as they passed 150 in the 29th over.However, Williamson and Elliott (32) both departed in the space of two overs and their innings looked like being derailed until Santner and Adam Milne (36) came together at 205-7 in the 41st over.The pair began to find the boundary and put on 61 in 44 balls to drag New Zealand towards the 300 mark.Warner and Usman Khawaja (50) gave Australia a solid start to their response with a 122-run partnership.Khawaja brought up his fifty with a single from the first ball of the 17th over before departing from the next delivery when he chipped a return catch back to bowler Santner. David Warner, spearheading the run chase, fell two runs short of his century The middle order failed to deliver - captain Steve Smith (2) and George Bailey (0) departing in successive balls at the hands of Matt Henry, and Glenn Maxwell (6) bowled by Trent Boult - but that only served to speed up Marshs arrival. Yeezy Powerphase Calabasas. Warner was sent back two short of his hundred when he was adjudged lbw off the bowling of Santner after a review, leaving Australia 191-5 and the match in the balance. Watch Adam Milne joined the ranks of spectacular boundary catches for New Zealand during their second ODI against Australia. Matthew Wade (2) did not last long - falling to a wonderful left-handed catch on the mid-wicket boundary, which secured Santner his third wicket - but, when Hastings joined Marsh in the middle, the writing was on the wall for the home team.Marsh overpowered New Zealand with nine fours and a six in his 72-ball innings, while Hastings - five fours and one six - produced some neat shots to find the gaps before unleashing a few big hits of his own in the closing stages to guide Australia to victory from 46.3 overs.The teams head into Mondays third and final ODI in Hamilton with the series finely poised at 1-1.Watch the deciding match of the series in Hamilton, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 00.55 on Monday, February 8 NFL Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Jerseys 2020 Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Jerseys NFL China Wholesale NFL Jerseys NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
