(SportsNetwork. http:///...s-futbol-jersey.html .com) - The Chicago Blackhawks aim to rebound from only their third loss in 14 games as they visit the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night at Pepsi Center. The Blackhawks had an eight-game home winning streak snapped with a 5-1 setback to the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday. Marian Hossa had the lone goal, while Corey Crawford allowed three goals on 13 shots before getting lifted in the first period. Antti Raanta made 11 saves in relief as Chicago lost at home for the first time since Nov. 7 versus Washington. I think weve been in every hockey game except for tonight, Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville said. Disappointing ending to a very good stretch. The Blackhawks still come out of the Christmas break leading the Central Division by two points over the Nashville Predators and it figures to be a busy upcoming week for the club. Chicago will host second-place Nashville on Monday before visiting the Capitals on New Years Day for the 2015 Winter Classic. Crawford should get a chance tonight to shake off his recent outing. Tuesday was just his second game since he missed eight in a row with a lower-body injury. But Crawford is just 3-6-2 versus Colorado lifetime with a 3.22 goals against average and .874 save percentage in 11 meetings with 10 starts. The Avalanche are riding their longest winning streak of the season, picking up a third victory in a row with Tuesdays 5-0 win over the St. Louis Blues. Semyon Varlamov returned to action with 26 saves for his second shutout of the season and 15th of his career. Varlamov played for the first time since Dec. 5 due to a groin injury, an aliment that has sidelined him three separate times this season. We played a real solid game the whole 60 minutes, said Varlamov. It is much easier to play when the guys score lots of goals. Alex Tanguay and Ryan OReilly each had one goal and an assist for the Avalanche, who have points in six straight (4-0-2). Jarome Iginla, Zach Redmond and Erik Johnson also lit the lamp. Varlamov was backed up on Tuesday by Calvin Pickard, who has gone 6-5-2 with a 2.06 GAA and .939 save percentage in 13 games (10 starts) this season, excelling when filling due to injury. Pickard is expected to start tonight, but may eventually go back to the minors for more playing time if Varlamov remains healthy. The Avalanche also have goaltender Reto Berra on the roster. Pickard faced the Blackhawks for the first time on Nov. 26 at home and lost, giving up three goals on 45 shots. That 3-2 win by Chicago came in the first of five meetings this season and snapped Colorados three-game series win streak. Camisetas Personalizada Baratas .

Now she will get to run what may be Canadas hottest sport. The Toronto resident was named president and chief executive officer of the sports national governing body Tennis Canada on Friday. She hopes to use the growing popularity of tennis to get more people playing at the local courts and to develop more Milos Raonics and Eugenie Bouchards. "We have experienced unbelievable success in the last number of months and years," she said. "If we can continue to build on that success, I think we can inculcate a culture of tennis in this country. "Its really getting the children and youth of this country playing on courts in their neighbourhoods, just picking up rackets and playing. Its really changing the culture of Canada." A lot of the presidents job is finding sponsors and raising money to finance programs across the country that may produce the next tennis stars, as well as running the Rogers Cup and other tournaments. She couldnt have walked into a better climate for that. Canadian tennis is on a high, with Raonics rise to a career-high 10th in world rankings (the Thornhill, Ont., resident is currently 11th) last summer, and with Vernon, B.C. native Vasek Pospisil not far behind at 30th. They helped Canadas Davis Cup team reach the world group semifinals in 2013, their best performance of the modern era. On the womens side, 19-year-old Bouchard Montreal had fans on the edge of their seats as she battled into the semifinals of the first grand slam event of the season in Australia this week. TSN reported more than four million watched the 2012 Wimbledon junior girls champions semifinal loss to Chinas Li Na. That sparked a run of ticket sales to see Bouchard and the Canadian womens team face Serbia in a Federation Cup tie Feb. 8-9 at the 4,000-seat Claude Robillard Centre in Montreal. "There is no more exciting time for tennis in Canada than right now, and wow, I get to be part of the team that will take Canada to the next level -- to the moon," she said. Murumets was introduced to the media by Tennis Canada chairman John LeBoutillier at Uniprix Stadium, which is part of the national training centre that helped produce Raonic, Bouchard and others. http:///...cueta-euro-2016.html. The centre opened in 2007 under former president and CEO Michael Downey, who announced in September he was stepping down to become chief executive of the prestigious British Lawn Tennis Association. He took over that job officially on Jan. 6. A search committee found Murumets, who was president of ParticipAction, an independent non-profit organization that supports healthy and active living for Canadians. Murumets looks to have plenty of enthusiasm. She has no specific projects in mind, but will spend her first weeks learning about the organization and seeing what can be done. Her goals are "getting more tennis rackets in more hands more often, continuing to deliver world class tournaments and developing the talent that makes us all so proud to be Canadians. Beyond that, the (Tennis Canada) team will help me understand where we need to focus." Before he left, Downey had hoped to start a national membership program for tennis players, and to land a tournament for Vancouver to go with the Rogers Cups in Montreal and Toronto. "We were looking for a person that would bring leadership and who would develop quickly a passion for tennis, whether he or she was a tennis player or not," said LeBoutillier. "And someone who wasnt coming for a year or two and then moving on to something else. "The hiring process went very smoothly and the committee made a unanimous recommendation to the board about a week ago." Murumets will officially begin her new position on March 3. In the meantime, she plans to spend a week playing and taking tennis lessons in Arizona. She comes armed with a load of university degrees -- a BA from Bishops, a masters in social work from Wilfrid Laurier and an MBA from Western. She recently resigned from the board of governors at Bishops. She was also president of a telecommunications company before joining ParticipAction. "I wanted to change the world," she said of her social work studies, adding that she returned from private business to not-for-profit organizations because "I believe we can change the world. "We have a chance to inspire Canadians to be more physically active -- to pick up a racket and play." Cheap JerseysWholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
