n has retained a potent bat

DENVER -- Ryan Miller used his head with the game on the line. Charlie Blackmon Rockies Jersey . No, really, his head. Late in the game, the St. Louis goalie craned his neck into the air to block a shot, taking a puck square in the mask. Anything for a win, especially this late in the season. Miller stopped 26 shots, and David Backes broke up a scoreless game in the second period, helping the Blues beat the surging Avalanche 2-1 on Saturday in a Central Division showdown. "Im just trying to fit in," Miller nonchalantly said. "Im not here to save the day or anything." But he has excelled since being acquired from Buffalo last week. He is 4-0 thanks to plays like he made late in the third period with his team ahead by a goal. Colorado captain Gabriel Landeskog got loose in front, and while falling to one knee, tried to lift a shot past Miller. But the veteran rose up to thwart the shot. He was just getting warmed up, too, for the division-leading Blues. Miller withstood a furious rally by the Avalanche in the final two minutes after they pulled goalie Semyon Varlamov. "Im here to become part of this club and work my way in, keep good habits," Miller said. "Ive played a long time and think I have a lot to offer. Thats my job right now." The more chaos around Miller, the more he seemed to calm down. That is one of his best attributes, coach Ken Hitchcock said. "His whole disposition calms everybody down," Hitchcock said. "Hes good. Theres a reason hes won so many games." With the Blues up 2-0 early in the third, after Patrik Berglund added a pivotal insurance goal, Miller appeared headed toward his first shutout in nearly two years. But Colorado solved Miller when P.A. Parenteau lifted a shot over him. "Hes been solid back there," Backes said. "Doing everything that world-class goalies do." Avalanche rookie Nathan MacKinnon had his point streak snapped at 13 games. It is the NHLs longest streak by an 18-year-old player. It was a frustrating afternoon for the Avs as their four-game winning streak was halted. They also lost one of their top offensive players when Paul Stastny went out with a back injury after his opening shift. "That was disappointing, but we didnt hang our heads, we just moved forward," forward Matt Duchene said. "Its a game of inches and they got a little more inches than us." Colorado coach Patrick Roy felt the same way. "Sometimes you arent always rewarded for the way you play and your effort," Roy said. "I thought we had better chances than them. I thought we deserved as much to win, and they did." Berglund gave St. Louis a 2-0 cushion at 3:53 of the final period when he gobbled up the puck down low, spun and lined it over the glove of Varlamov. Moments later, Parenteau beat Miller after receiving a pass from Duchene. That certainly revved up a crowded area, giving the game a playoff feel. "The fans were into this one," Landeskog said. "We left our best out there on the ice." St. Louis made it 1-0 at 7:03 of the second period on a play set up by a long pass from defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk, who has thrived against his former team since he was traded three years ago. Deep in his own end, Shattenkirk sent a pass to T.J. Oshie, who, as he was falling down, slid the puck to Backes. From there, Backes guided the puck past Varlamovs left skate. Shattenkirk has four goals and five assists in 12 games against Colorado. Both teams had a failed power play in the first period and eight shots. Miller had the save of the period when he stopped a point-blank shot from Parenteau with his left shoulder. "Its great to contribute," Miller said. "I wanted to come in and contribute." NOTES: Hitchcock tied Ron Wilson for seventh place on the NHL career wins list with 648. ... The Blues have outscored the Avs 13-5 in taking all three games in the season series. The teams will meet again on April 5 in St. Louis. ... Colorado had 13 of its 27 shots in the final period. ... Roy said of Stastnys injury: "Well know more in the next few days." Todd Helton Jersey . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Jorge De La Rosa Jersey . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. http://www.baseballrockiesonline.com/customized/ .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim for their third three-game winning streak of the season when they host the struggling Edmonton Oilers in Sundays battle at the United Center.NEW YORK -- Outfielder Carlos Beltran and the New York Yankees have finalized a $45 million, three-year contract. The agreement, reached Dec. 6, was announced by the team Thursday. The eight-time All-Star is to be introduced at a Yankee Stadium news conference Friday. The 36-year-old played for the Mets from 2005-11, when he was dealt to San Francisco. He signed a $26 million, two-year contract with St. Louis before the 2012 season and reached the World Series for the first time this year. Slowed by knee injuries, Beltran has retained a potent bat -- especially in October. He hit . Nolan Arenado Jersey. 296 with 24 homers and 84 RBIs for the Cardinals this year and added two homers and 15 RBIs in the post-season. Beltran injured ribs in the World Series opener when he banged into Fenway Parks right-fight fence while robbing Bostons David Ortiz of a grand slam. New York seems to have a logjam among outfielders on its roster, a group that includes Jacoby Ellsbury, Brett Gardner, Ichiro Suzuki, Alfonso Soriano and Vernon Wells. To open a roster spot, the Yankees designated right-hander Brett Marshall for assignment. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
