GLENDALE, Ariz. Nike Vapormax 2020 . -- Jamie McGinn visited the Arizona Coyotes on Wednesday and knew they would be a good fit right away.He was picked up at the airport by general manager John Chayka and coach Dave Tippett. The team had a welcome sign for McGinn at Gila River Arena and a stall made up with his jerseys.It was just what McGinn needed to feel appreciatedThey did that from the start, said McGinn, who signed a three-year, $10 million contract on Friday, the first day of free agency in the NHL.The Coyotes went into the free-agency period wanting to add depth to their blue line and some heft up front.Arizona got an early jump, trading for the rights to defenseman Alex Goligoski, then signing him to a five-year, $27.375 million deal last week.Though limited to 19 games with Colorado in 2014-15 because of back surgery, McGinn, 27, played 84 games last season, finishing with a career-high 22 goals and 17 assists. He started the season with Buffalo and was traded at the deadline to Anaheim, spending the final 19 games with the Ducks.McGinn has 91 goals and 76 assists in 450 career games after being selected in the second round of the 2006 NHL draft by San Jose, where he spent the first four seasons of his career.At 6-foot-1, 205 pounds, he has the size and ability the Coyotes were hoping for on the left side.We wanted to add some weight and physicality to our lineup, Chayka said. He certainly brings that.Arizona also made several other smaller deals to open free agency, re-signing defenseman Kevin Connauton to a two-year contract and former Los Angeles Kings defenseman Jamie McBain to a one-year deal.The Coyotes also signed defensemen Klas Dahlbeck and Jarred Tinordi, forwards Chris Mueller and Garret Ross, along with goalie Justin Peters to one-year deals.Arizona would still like to beef up its blue line and is hoping to re-sign captain Shane Doan, but its roster is in decent shape after the series of deals.I think we accomplished a lot of what we were looking to do, Chayka said.

That made a lot of sense from their standpoint,The Bryans didnt relish having Cilic in the lineup.Cilic is dangerous. He brings great returns and some nasty groundies and his serve is pretty strong, Bob Bryann said. Vapormax Scontate. So putting him in there was probably a smart play,The 38-year-old Bryans, handed just their fifth Davis Cup loss in 29 matches, had their serve broken six times by the Croatians.We werent making a lot of first serves, werent getting them in trouble from the start. They just kind of outplayed us in every aspect of the game today, Bob Bryan said. Those guys are two good players. Thats the type of match that we have to play at the top of our game to take them out. We just didnt do it.The doubles win gave Cilic a much-needed boost of confidence after blowing a two-set lead to Roger Federer in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, then to Sock on Friday.I was thinking a little bit after yesterdays loss that maybe I was a little mentally drained. Wimbledon left a small mark on me. This gives me good sensation for playing, Cilic said.The United States, 157-3 in Davis Cup with a 2-0 lead, claims its confidence hasnt wavered. Isner beat Coric in three sets, while Sock bounced back from a two-set deficit to win the final three sets against Cilic.Obviously, we would have loved to close this out today, but were up 2-1 going in and our singles players have confidence, Courier said. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but were confident.The United States is trying to break a nine-year Davis Cup title drought. The U.S. won in 2007 when it beat Russia 4-1 in Portland.

That close, Matthews said.Matthews was visiting the New York area this weekend to see a son who works for Major League Baseball. Another son, Gary Jr., was an All-Star outfielder.The 66-year-old Matthews enjoyed a good run as a player, coach and broadcaster in the big leagues. Hes now rooting hard for Kris Bryant, Anthony Rizzo and these Cubs to finally break the jinx.I think they have as good a chance as any of the Cubs teams, he said, smiling, since 1908. ' ' '
