he Nets can surpass low expectations this season.Ive always prayed and asked God, I want a chance to come

Sitting atop the Metropolitan Division and with one of the leagues best records, it may be hard to find fault with the New York Rangers play. Nike Roshe One Flyknit .Recent results at Madison Square Garden seem to indicate otherwise.The Rangers look to halt a three-game home losing streak as they meet the surging Ottawa Senators for the first time this season Sunday night.New York won six of its last nine against Ottawa, but the three losses all came in Manhattan. Thats where New York (15-6-1) got off to a hot start this season, winning eight of its first nine and outscoring the opposition 42-19.However, the Rangers were outscored 13-6 in consecutive losses to the struggling Vancouver Canucks, the Florida Panthers and the defending Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Ottawa comes into this contest in position for a season-high fourth straight victory.A reason for those struggles could be traced to Michael Grabner, J.T. Miller and Kevin Hayes all slumping simultaneously.From Oct. 13 through Nov. 6, nine Rangers had at least seven points at Madison Square Garden. Miller led the way with 12 points (five goals, seven assists), followed by Hayes with 11 (five goals, six assists) and Grabner -- enjoying a career resurgence -- had eight, including six goals.Over the last three home games, though, Miller and Grabner havent had a point and Hayes recorded one assist.In the Rangers 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday, Hayes scored and Miller drew an assist, but the star of the game was Henrik Lundqvist as he made 19 of his season-high 40 saves in the third period.Tonight we werent great; our goaltender was, Rangers defenseman Marc Staal told the New York Daily News.With a minimum of 35 career appearances, Lundqvist has a losing record against only one opponent. In 36 games against the Senators, Lundqvist is 15-17-3 with a 2.08 goals-against average, .931 save percentage and one shutout. When he faces them at home, though, King Henrik is 5-12-2 with a 2.32 GAA and .921 save percentage.Lundqvist needs one win to tie Mike Vernon for 13th on the career victories list with 385.Antti Raanta, who relieved Lundqvist in Wednesdays 6-1 home loss to Pittsburgh, gave up five goals and lost in his only appearance against the Senators in 2014 while with the Chicago Blackhawks.Ottawa (13-7-1) is coming off Saturdays 2-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes. Craig Anderson stopped 32 shots and Kyle Turris broke a 1-1 tie with 3:32 to play.In eight career starts at Madison Square Garden, Anderson is 6-1-1 with a 1.59 GAA, a .951 save percentage and two shutouts. However, Anderson has been on the losing end in each of his last two games there, surrendering six goals.Ottawa coach Guy Boucher did not immediately say if Anderson or Mike Condon would start in goal. Condon hasnt played since giving up a season-high five goals in a loss to the Nashville Predators on Nov. 17.Thats why youve got flights, Boucher said. It gives you a bit of time to reflect on what you want to do the next day.Ottawa has surrendered the opening goal in 11 straight games, posting a 6-4-1 record.You dont want to get in the habit of playing from behind, but were showing good mental toughness by not letting a goal affect the way we play, Anderson said.The Senators also are 2-0-0 in the second games of back-to-back contests this season.Surprisingly, the Senators most productive scorer at Madison Square Garden is Chris Kelly with seven goals, including a pair of game-winners, and two assists in 11 games. Kelly, who returned to Ottawa as a free agent in July after five-plus seasons with the Boston Bruins, has a goal and two assists in 21 games but hasnt registered a point in 13 straight.New Yorks Matt Puempel wont have to wait long for a chance to face his former team. Puempel, a first-round pick by Ottawa in 2011, was claimed off waivers by the Rangers on Monday, one day after ex-Senator Mike Zibanejad suffered a broken leg thats expected to sideline him for up to two months.Puempel, who failed to earn a point in 13 games with Ottawa, scored in his first game with the Rangers on Friday -- and took a shot at his former organization.They let you play here. They let you play to your strengths, Puempel told the New York Post on Saturday. They know there are going to be mistakes. Theyre not barking at you every time you come off the ice. Its beneficial.The Rangers acquired Zibanejad in July for Derick Brassard and swapped picks in the 2018 NHL Draft. Zibanejad, a two-time 20-goal scorer at 23 years old, had five goals and 10 assists in 19 games.Brassard is struggling with his new club, posting three goals, including one on the power play, and six assists in 21 games.The 29-year-old Brassard averaged 21.3 goals and 33 assists in three full seasons with New York from 2013-16. He also provided a spark on the power play, leading the team with eight man-advantage goals last season and tying for the team lead with seven in 2013-14. Nike Roshe One DMB .C. -- After a listless first half, the Washington Wizards used a big third quarter run to beat the Charlotte Bobcats Bradley Beal scored 21 points and the Wizards used a 17-0 run in the third quarter to take control of what had been a close game and beat the Bobcats 97-83 on Tuesday night. Nike Roshe Two Mens .ca! Hi Kerry, Its another day and here we are looking at another dubious hit to the head. In this case Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky elbowed Saku Koivu in the head about a second after he dished off the puck to a teammate, knocking him unconscious. . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. NEW YORK -- Jeremy Lin knows hell carry the weight of Linsanity as wide as the Brooklyn Bridge heading into the new NBA season.People are quicker to discount me or say certain things because of my race, said Lin, the leagues first American-born player of Chinese or Taiwanese descent. In some ways, Linsanity wouldnt have been Linsanity if I was a different skin color most likely. It wouldnt have been as big of a deal. That went to my advantage. But if you look prior to that, a lot of the obstacles or positions to even get to that point where I could get to a position of getting on the floor, theyre definitely obstacles or barriers or stereotypes I had to fight along the way. Ive always understood theres good, theres bad and youve got to take them together and just be thankful for it all.After captivating New York and becoming a global phenomenon by averaging 24 points, nine assists and four rebounds for the Knicks during a 10-game stretch in February 2012, Lin becomes the face of the Brooklyn Nets.I definitely feel a much stronger responsibility or leadership role that I didnt in my last two or three teams, he said Monday at the Nets media day. I feel like for me here, a lot of its going to fall on me and Brook (Lopez) setting the tone every day in workouts, even how we live off the court and how we take care of our bodies, eat and sleep.For Lin, an undrafted point guuard from Harvard, this is the second chance hes craved to finish what he began in New York four years ago. Nike Roshe One Hyperfuse. And how he plays could determine whether the Nets can surpass low expectations this season.Ive always prayed and asked God, I want a chance to come back to New York, but I want it to be right, he said. I dont want to just come back to New York just to come back to New York.In Brooklyn, Lin will be the focal point of the offense with the ball in his hands often as the primary playmaker, similar to his days under coach Mike DAntoni with the Knicks. Lin reunites with new Nets coach Kenny Atkinson, the former Knicks assistant coach who helped him develop and believes he is ready to handle the responsibilities of running this team.Its a heck of a challenge for him, but I think hes prepared for it, Atkinson said last week. I think its the right time in his career.After signing Lin to a three-year, $36 million deal, the Nets hope Lin can pick up where Linsanity left off and spur a rebuilding effort in Brooklyn.At the end of the day, the best fit was here, he said. I was just extra excited when it happened because I get to come back here, my friends are here, the fans, get some good food and just be back where my career took off. Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
