l teams units made most of the highlight plays

(Sports Network) - The Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators will renew hostilities on Tuesday, as the Sens host the Habs in Game 4 of a spirited Eastern Conference quarterfinals matchup. Juan Mata Jersey . Senators defenceman Eric Gryba returns from a two- game suspension for his Game 1 hit on Montreal forward Lars Eller, who is out indefinitely. Listen to the game on TSN Radio 690 in Montreal or online at Coverage begins at 7pm et/4pm pt. The Senators and Canadiens entered Sundays Game 3 tied at one win apiece in this best-of-seven set, but Ottawa clobbered second-seeded Montreal by a 6-1 score in a fight-filled contest that saw the teams combine for 236 penalty minutes. Kyle Turris scored seven minutes into the third period to make it 4-1 Ottawa and on the ensuing faceoff a line brawl broke out among all 10 skaters on the ice. When the dust settled, a total of eight players involved in those fights were given game misconducts. "I havent seen that in a long time in the National Hockey League. But thats hockey, stuff happens," said Senators head coach Paul MacLean. "I thought we reacted well under the circumstances and the duress that we were put under and we defended ourselves." After the game, both head coaches expressed distaste for each others tactics and Montreals Michel Therrien took umbrage with MacLeans decision to call a timeout with 18 seconds left in the third period "You never want to humiliate the other team, and thats exactly what MacLean wanted to do. To me, it was a total lack of class," Therrien said. "Even when I said that to the referee, he said hed never seen a timeout with 17 seconds to go. It was 6-1." However, MacLean claimed he was only trying to get the right players on the ice in case another brawl broke out. "My only recourse was to take the timeout because I didnt want anyone to get hurt," said MacLean. "In order to protect my players under circumstance that were instigated by the Montreal Canadiens, I was forced to protect my players. I will do that every time." MacLean was informed of Therriens accusation that he called the timeout to "humiliate" the Canadiens, and Ottawas bench boss shot right back. "I think they were doing a pretty good job of that themselves," he said. "They didnt need my help at all." The Senators were 3-for-10 on the power play, while Montreal went 1-for-6. Senators rookie Jean-Gabriel Pageau had his stellar Game 3 performance overshadowed by the rough stuff. Pageau scored his first three career playoff goals to help lead the way in the rout at Scotiabank Place. It was the first hat trick in the playoffs by an Ottawa player since Daniel Alfredsson did it in 1998. Alfredsson had a goal and two assists for the seventh-seeded Senators, who will try to push Montreal to the brink of elimination with a win in Game 4. Erik Karlsson and Sergei Gonchar each had two helpers in the lopsided win, while Craig Anderson made 33 saves. Meanwhile, Carey Price surrendered all six Ottawa goals on 30 shots and Rene Bourque had the lone goal for the Habs, who had forwards Brian Gionta and Max Pacioretty back in the lineup after sitting out Game 2 with upper-body injuries. Therrien would not confirm who will dress in their place. Not feeling 100 per cent, Gionta will sit out this evenings game, as will forward Ryan White. White hurt his shoulder in Game 3 and left the game briefly in the second period after colliding with teammate Travis Moen. Ottawa defenseman Patrick Wiercioch suffered a lower-body injury in the first period and did not return. He is not expected to play tonight. However, fellow defenseman Eric Gryba is eligible to return on Tuesday after serving a two- game suspension for his Game 1 hit on Montreal forward Lars Eller, who is out indefinitely. Montreal, which will host Game 5 of this series on Thursday, was 15-7-2 on the road during the regular season. The Senators had a superb 15-6-3 record at home during this season compared to a 10-11-3 mark on the road. Ottawa and the Canadiens split four meetings during the season series, with each club winning two games on home ice. Jesse Lingard Jersey .

Thousands of fans at Mosaic Stadium will be cozying up to each other in an effort to stay warm in chilly temperatures and block the Prairie wind that locals say can knock your socks off. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Arkansas State senior wide receiver Kendall Sanders admits that he was pushed by his coaches and even teammates when he didnt want to be at times this season.The Texas transfer came around as the Red Wolves season progressed in his lone year with the program. Sanders finally put it all together in his final appearance Saturday night, catching five passes for 127 yards and three touchdowns in a 31-13 rout of UCF in the AutoNation Cure Bowl.It was almost like vindication for Sanders who missed two years of football after leaving the Longhorns under the controversy of a sexual assault case in which he was acquitted last year.I just had to continue to fight, said Sanders, who also took home the Cure Bowl MVP. I just thank God for giving me another opportunity and I just tried to make the best of it.Sanders speed opened up opportunities for big plays all night with quarterback Justice Hansen connecting with Sanders on touchdown passing plays of 12, 75 and 17 yards for a career night. His 75-yard touchdown reception on the third play of the second half set the tone for remainder of the game as the Red Wolves (8-5) went up by a commanding 24-10 just 51 seconds into the third quarter.Sanders got by the safety, broke a tackle and outran the secondary to the end zone.Initially in my route I had to run a 20-yard route but I had just had the conversation with him (Hansen) and he was like just get past the safety, Sanders said. So I kind of cut it short and tried to past the safety so he could see me and he hit me right in stride. From there I just used my God-given abilities.It was a fitting ending to college career that was about perseverance.I really dont think he started out the season with too much confidence, he was rusty and had to get his feet underneath him, Arkansas State coach Blake Anderson said. What youve seen him do the last five or six weeks he started playing better and better. That explosive play we had on the very first series of the second half, we desperately needed that to gain the momentum back.The Red Wolves also received major contributions from their defense and special teams. Marcus Rashford Jersey. rkansas States defensive front, led by defensive end JaVon Rolland-Jones, swarmed UCF quarterback McKenzie Milton all night, giving him little time to find open receivers. But the special teams unit also came through big, contributing two turnovers that led to touchdowns and also blocking a punt for a touchdown.When you look at a team that is as good (defensively) as Central Florida is you know special teams has to come up huge, said Anderson.For first-year UCF coach Scott Frost the biggest takeaway was learning how much more his team has to grow to take the next step.We got to get a lot better, said Frost, who team finished the year 6-7. I think our payers gave us absolutely all they had and I think this group got about everything they could out of themselves.TAKEAWAYUCF: Clearly, Frost wasnt comfortable letting Milton throw the ball down field and that hurt the offense. Jawon Hamilton found little running room with Arkansas State stacking the box and the short passing game to TreQuan Smith rarely produced the desired results in a disappointing showing in front of the Knights home crowd.Arkansas State: While the special teams units made most of the highlight plays, the defense was dominant throughout. Defensive end JaVon Rolland-Jones and linebacker Chris Odom kept the pressure on Milton and didnt give Hamilton any running lanes.UP NEXTUCF: The Knights could be a contender for the American Athletic Conference title next year but Milton has to take some big steps, especially with his mechanics. Too often he throws off his back foot which leaves passes well short of the receiver. Defensively Frost will have to find a way to replace his entire secondary.Arkansas State: The Red Wolves lose quite a bit along the offensive line and on defense, but they have enough explosive players to run their string of postseason appearances to seven next season.---More AP college football: and Disocunt Football Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China China NFL Jerseys White Cheap Authentic Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Camo China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Discount Jerseys China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Jerseys Camo Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Youth NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
