The 19-year-old defenseman fired a slap shot from the blue line that Gagner deflected for his team-leading 13th goal.It seems like the puck is finding the back of the net, Werenski said. I just threw it to the net, hoping it got there. I couldnt really see anything and next thing I know guys are celebrating.Boone Jenner, Brandon Saad and Matt Calvert also scored for Columbus, which owns the NHLs best winning percentage at .750. The Jackets are 13-1-2 in their last 16.Weve had a really good mindset where were just trying to approach every day as a new day and trying to get better, Gagner said.

Nike Tn Shoes For Sale .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. Nike Air Max TN Plus Ultra Mens White Grey Black . Pierce was ejected in the third quarter of Indianas 103-86 win Monday. George Hill stole a bad pass and was going in for a layup, and Pierce hustled back and appeared to be trying to wrap him up. . The 20-year-old Pelicans big man glanced up and smiled widely at the well-wishers -- a fitting end to a day he wont soon forget. Davis responded to his selection earlier in the day as a Western Conference All-Star with 26 points and 10 rebounds, and the New Orleans Pelicans overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves 98-91 on Friday night. The All Blacks depth has been tested once again in their 57-22 win over Argentina, with several substitutes being injected into the fray to good effect.The world champions were challenged in the first half by an energetic Pumas outfit and, looking for stability, introduced halfback TJ Perenara and prop Charlie Faumuina soon after half-time.Both responded in the best possible way, with Perenara laying on three try assists in an assured display and Faumuina barging over for a five-pointer in the corner.Fellow substitute Luke Romano also managed to influence proceedings by crossing for a late try.Coach Steve Hansen said the 24-year-old Perenara, who helped lead the Hurricanes to Super Rugby glory this season, deserved his 32 minutes after a sub-par Aaron Smith display.Nuggy (Smith) just wasnt having the night he wanted, getting a little frustrated, Hansen said.It was great for TJ to come on and I thought he was outstanding, playing really well (and) cleared the ball quickly off the deck.Perenara said he was glad to play his part after participating in just 28 minutes of the All Blacks back-to-back wins over the Wallabies.My job is to come on and be accurate in what I do and try and make an impact, Perenara said.Blues tighthead Faumuina said he and his teammates on the bench endeavoured to inject energy into the affair as Los Pumas visibly wilted.They were glad to add some zip to the All Blacks offensive play.The boys were working hard in the first half and you just want to bring something special to them, a bit of energy that the boys needed, 29-year-old Faumuina said.The Pumas were left to rue missed opportunities as they simply couldnt keep up the intensity late into the second half with Argeentina coach Daniel Hourcade admitting his side could not live with the All Blacks pace and power for the full 80 minutes. Nike Air Max TN Plus Ultra Mens Blue White. Argentina came in for considerable praise from All Blacks coach Steve Hansen after the match, and Hourcade was pleased by his sides competitiveness against the best team in the world.But he said they had failed to make their early periods of dominance count or use their kicking game to good effect.We put a lot of pressure against them but perhaps we consumed a lot of energy, Hourcade said.When we couldnt put that pressure on, they were more relaxed and started to play, and it made a big difference.Skipper Agustin Creevy, who made 15 carries for 35 minutes, received hearty applause from the Kiwi faithful when substituted in the second half.He was honoured by the gesture but upset his side couldnt make their early intensity pay.His side had looked to take advantage of the All Blacks vulnerability at the breakdown by playing closer to the ruck but soon grew fatigued.They can produce the difference in the last 20 minutes as they showed today, the 31-year-old said.They showed theyre one step ahead of the rest of the teams.Hourcades Pumas will now travel to Perth to take on an Australian outfit buoyed by their drought-breaking victory over the Springboks in Brisbane on Saturday.Creevy said only a victory would satisfy him against the Wallabies.Were here to win games and not just to see what happens, we want to continue growing, the Jaguares hooker said.We are a team thats going to look for a win against Australia and the games afterwards.
