New Zealands 10-try rout of Italy helped put the disappointment of a first loss to Ireland behind them and prepared the team for a shot at redemption in Dublin, according to the All Blacks. Jonathan Quick Team USA Jersey .The world champions suffered their first defeat at the hands of the Irish in 111 years, losing 40-29 in Chicago last week in a match that ended the All Blacks record tier-one run of 18 consecutive Test wins.With coach Steve Hansen making 12 changes from the team that lost in Chicago, they responded on Saturday (Sunday AEDT) by scoring five tries in each half to thrash the Italians 68-10 in Rome.We needed to bounce back this week after a disappointing game by All Black standards last week, stand-in captain Sam Cane said.We all gelled and came together and kept the scoreboard ticking over throughout the 80 minutes, which was very pleasing.After being exposed on defence last week against Ireland, the All Blacks were rarely challenged by Italy at the Stadio Olympico, with the Azzurris game plan limited to aimless kicking that failed to put any pressure on the visitors.Hansen gave little away about how the Italy game would shape selections for the Ireland rematch in Dublin next Saturday (Sunday AEDT), though he praised the performance of man-of-the-match Aaron Cruden, who dictated the game at five-eighth.He hasnt played a lot of rugby, so we wanted him firstly to get more match time, Hansen said.Secondly, (we wanted him) to do his core roles really well - his passing, kicking, running and organising - and get back into the flow of rugby again.As the game went on he got better and better.It bodes well for next week, weve got a lot of in-form people for selection, and even better, it bodes well for the future. Ryan Suter Jersey . LOUIS -- Mike Smith is used to facing plenty of shots, so this was nothing new. David Backes World Cup Jersey . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. . Brett Kulak and Jackson Houck of the Vancouver Giants were each charged with assault causing bodily harm on Aug. 18, according to the B.C. court services.At the recent NHL combine in Toronto, Jordan Subban was asked if his brothers, Montreal Canadiens defenceman P.K. and Boston Bruins first-round pick Malcolm, gave him any advice about the event. "Well, P.K. was sleeping so I couldnt talk to him," said a grinning Jordan, who is poised to become the third Subban brother drafted when NHL teams converge on New Jerseys Prudential Center on June 30. The combine was his last chance to showcase his talents on a big stage. So, why didnt he try and wake his oldest brother up to pick his brain? "Hes a heavy sleeper," said Jordan, who plays for the OHLs Belleville Bulls, still wearing a big smile. But P.K. Subban was very much awake on Saturday night in Chicago where he formally accepted the Norris Trophy as the NHLs top defenceman. And during his meeting with reporters it was suggested that the 24-year-old had set the bar mighty high for Jordan, who is also a defenceman. Malcolm, meanwhile, is a goalie, who was drafted 24th overall by the Bruins a year ago. PIZZA & POTENTIAL "I dont think he really sees it that way," P.K. said. "I think he kind of wants to do more than what Ive achieved. Hes a special individual. Hes going to be an amazing player. The thing about Jordan is a lot of people might look [past him] but theyre going to be surprised in the near future about how good he is, because I really do think that he has a lot more potential than both myself and Malcolm. "Put it this way: Theres seven people in our family [his parents and two sisters to go along with the three brothers], if theres only six slices of pizza at the table, Jordans getting one. Thats how I like to talk about Jordan. Hes that type of kid and hes got that type of character and hell fight his way to the NHL." More potential than a Norris Trophy winner? Is that simply sibling pride? Jordan, after all, is only the 55th-ranked North American skater on NHL Central Scoutings final list of top prospects. TSN scout Craig Button has him at No. 41 on his final list. But P.K., who was picked in the second round (43rd overall) in the 2007 NHL draft, insists teams shouldnt sleep on his younger brother. JORDANS SKILL LEVEL IS MUCH HIGHER THAN MINE "Jordan plays more of a cerebral type [of game],," said P. Phil Kessel Jersey. .K. "Hes more of a thinker. I play off my instincts and I try to do a little bit of everything, but I think Jordans skill level is much higher than mine. I mean, Im on the ice with him every day during the summer doing skill stuff and hes the one demonstrating the drills ... Im not. Im the guy still trying to learn them. Hes got a tremendous amount of skill and thats OK, I mean, I dont know exactly where hes ranked in the draft or where hes supposed to go, but weve always been the ones to come from the bottom and surprise people so if thats what hes got to do hell do it." P.K. was a sixth-round pick in the 2005 OHL Priority Selection while Malcolm was an 11th rounder in 2009. Both bucked the odds to make a splash at the NHL Draft. Jordan, meanwhile, was a first-round OHL pick in 2011, but may end up being a later NHL pick than either of his brothers. "We both like to play emotional and compete very hard," said Jordan of P.K., "but hes a little bit bigger than me so I try to play a little more smarter and just use my stick well and stuff like that while he can get away with using his strength and his body." Jordan stands 5-foot-9 and weighs in at 175 pounds while P.K. is 6-foot, 216. But the difference between the two dont end with dimensions. "I try to stay a little bit more calmer than P.K., but a little more exciting, outgoing than Malcolm so somewhere in between I guess," said Jordan. I HAVE TO DO IT FOR MYSELF Jordan admits his brothers did come up during his interviews with NHL teams during the combine, but notes, "There wasnt too much chatter about them, especially in Torontos room about P.K. ... just kidding." Jordan realizes much of the attention hes getting in the lead-up to the draft has to do with who his older siblings are and he says thats okay by him. But, in the same breath, he makes it clear he doesnt feel like hes living in their shadows. "I dont really think its following in their footsteps. Obviously, Im proud to have two brothers that I can look up to and theyve really helped me out along the way, but for me its just about paving my own path in my own career. Once I get on the ice they cant do anything for me. I have to do it for myself." Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
