Chicago hasnt allowed a power-play goal antworten

CRANS-SUR-SIERRE, Switzerland -- Thomas Bjorn made a 12-foot birdie putt on the first playoff hole Sunday to beat Craig Lee for the European Masters title. cheap nfl jerseys . Bjorn added to his title from 2011 after watching Lees attempt from 15 feet slide left of the hole on the par-4 18th. Earlier, both players missed 20-foot putts for the win in regulation on the foggy, rain-swept final green following a 30-minute suspension for fog to clear. Bjorn, who waited out the delay standing on the 18th tee, missed left and completed his round of 6-under 65. The Dane then watched on TV in the scorers hut as the 36-year-old Lee of Scotland sought to clinch his first career title. Lee, who led by two shots after his 61 on Saturday, had his putt catch the right lip of the hole and carded a 67. Both finished with 20-under totals of 264. Victor Dubuisson of France was third, one shot back after shooting 66. Bjorns 14th career European Tour title was his first since winning here in 2011, when he closed with 62 to also finish 20 under. The 42-year-old Dane earned prize money of 366,660 euros ($483,000). Lees career-high check for 244,440 euros ($322,000) looks certain to secure his European Tour status for next year. Just like two years ago, Bjorn made a Sunday charge for the title in the thin mountain air of the Swiss Alps. Bjorn fired five birdies in the first eight holes, and added another at the par-5 15th in his bogey-free round. Indeed, his entire tournament was a model of consistency with just two dropped shots and no eagles in four rounds. Bjorn birdied the first and fourth holes Sunday, and moved into a three-way share of the lead with another at the par-4 fifth. He joined Lee and Alejandro Canizares of Spain, who eagled the easy par-5 first and birdied the next two holes. Reaching the turn in 31, Bjorn led by two but missed mid-range birdie chances at holes 11 and 12, as Lee made birdie at the par-4 12th. Bjorn found trouble at the par-5 14th, hitting his tee shot onto the 13th tee box. He got a free drop and sank a 6-foot putt for par. Lee drew level at 19 under with a 25-footer for birdie at the 14th, then both contenders got birdies at the 15th. Wholesale Jerseys China .

CHICAGO -- It is no surprise the Chicago Blackhawks are in the playoffs for the fifth straight year. After all, the NHL leaders started the lockout-shortened season with points in their first 24 games -- a league record. But the Blackhawks made a strong statement Sunday in becoming the first team this season to clinch post-season berth, as they used a third-period rally to beat the Nashville Predators 5-3. Rookie Brandon Saad and Jonathan Toews scored 55 seconds apart midway through the third. Chicago (29-5-4) had fallen behind 3-2 early in the period on a goal by Nashvilles David Legwand, but Saad and Toews connected against Pekka Rinne to put the Blackhawks back ahead. The Blackhawks defeated the Predators for the second time in two days and improved to 13-0-1 against Central Division teams. "We obviously wanted to stay in the spot were in in the standings," Toews said, "but first and foremost, our No. 1 goal coming in every season is we want to make the playoffs. "To beat a team like Nashville twice in a row, first on the road and then at home, is a great thing. We did a lot of good things in that game, but most of all, we didnt stop working. We found a way to win in the third." Patrick Kane, who set up Toews eventual game winner, added an empty-net goal with 32 seconds left to complete the scoring. Andrew Shaw and Bryan Bickell also scored for Chicago. Kanes hustling assist on Toews goal at 10:32 of the third might have been the pivotal mark on the score sheet. Kane outraced two Predators to a loose puck on the back boards, then centred to Toews, who connected on a low shot from the right circle. "That should be the headline, because you dont see that too often. Im just kidding," Toews said. "It was a great play by him. "I came flying off the bench and he saw me in the slot. My first thought was to try and find Saad backdoor because I could see him kind of going to the net there, but I went against that instinct and shot the puck." Shea Weber and Nick Spaling each had a goal and an assist for the Predators (15-17-8), who are 13th in the Western Conference with 38 points, five behind eighth-place Detroit at the post-season cutoff. "It was competitive," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "They (Nashville) played both these games as they had to win. Yesterday we were maybe a little bit more efficient than we were today, but we were sticking with it." Nashville played with desperation after a sluggish first period, but the Predators were done in by mistakes -- and a talented Chicago team. "We got beat to the puck on the one (Toews) goal," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. "It was just individual stuff. "Thats on our D. Our D has got to have that puck." Chicagos Ray Emery stopped 19 shots, following a 20-save, 1-0 win at Nashville on Saturday. The Blackhawks improved to 4-0 against the Predators this season.. cheap jerseys from china. . Rinne, who leads the NHL in games and minutes played, made 35 saves as he appeared in his 29th straight contest. The Predators have made the playoffs the past three seasons and in seven of eight, but that run is in jeopardy "Weve just got to play hard and see what happens," Trotz said. "The chances are remote, but youve got to play hard. Youre not going to do anybody any favours if you dont." Both teams skated without key forwards. Nashville left wing Gabriel Bourque, who is tied with Legwand for the team lead with 11 goals, missed his fourth game because of an upper body injury. Mike Fisher, third on the Predators with 19 points, sat out after aggravating a hand injury that caused him to miss three games last week. Patrick Sharp, who led the Blackhawks with 33 goals last season, missed his 14th game with a shoulder injury. Dave Bolland sat out his second because of a lower body injury, believed to have been caused when a shot by Weber struck him last Monday. The Blackhawks killed the only penalty against them on Sunday and have snuffed 17 straight chances. Chicago hasnt allowed a power-play goal in 10 games, dating to March 18. The Blackhawks entered the game as the third-least penalized team in the NHL, training the New York Islanders and Rangers. Shaw opened the scoring 6:34 in on a tip-in. Michael Frolik jumped on a rebound that Rinne had deflected to the left boards, then turned and fired on goal in one motion. Shaw deflected the puck over Rinnes shoulder. The Blackhawks dominated the first period, outshooting the Predators 17-7. But a turnover by defenceman Johnny Oduya in the slot set off a scramble that led to Spalings goal that made it 1-1 with 2:44 left. Sergei Kostitsyn grabbed the loose puck and shot from a sharp angle to the right of the net. Emery stopped that attempt, but Spaling fired in the rebound before Emery could recover. Bickell, who scored Chicagos only goal on Saturday, put the Blackhawks back in front 2-1 at 2:09 of the second. Weber tied it at 2 just over three minutes later, when he fired from the top of the right circle directly from a faceoff win by Spaling. Legwand scored on a rebound to put Nashville ahead 3-2 at 6:54 of the third to cap a scrum around the Chicago net. Saad tied it at 3 at 9:37 from 10 feet. After fanning on a first shot attempt, defenceman Duncan Keith swept in and fired a shot that Rinne blocked. Saad converted the rebound. Toews put Chicago ahead 4-3 at 10:32. Kanes goal with 32 seconds left completed the scoring. NOTES: Before the game, Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said that Sharp could return this week.
