if you can put the negative behind

  • (SportsNetwork. Kyle Singler Jersey .com) - Looking to salvage what started out as a pretty good month, the Detroit Red Wings try to push their winning streak to three games in a row on Monday night when they visit the Boston Bruins. The Red Wings have picked up back-to-back wins on the heels of losing six straight, but they do have points in nine of 12 games in December (5-3-4) to sit second in the Atlantic Division with 47 points. The Bruins are sixth in the division with 39 points. Detroit stayed in the win column with Saturdays 3-2 overtime decision against the Ottawa Senators, with Gustav Nyquist putting on a show in the bonus frame to close out the contest with 48 seconds on the clock. The 25-year-old controlled the puck and skated around the Senators zone for 28 seconds before finally finding space to unleash a wrist shot from the left circle for his 15th goal of the season. That effort came after he had three assists in last Tuesdays win over Buffalo. The guys did a good job of creating some space for me, Nyquist said. It was nice to see it go in at the end. Henrik Zetterberg had a goal and an assist, Justin Abdelkader also scored and Niklas Kronwall supplied two helpers for the Red Wings. Jimmy Howard turned aside 31 shots in his return from a groin injury that held him out of the previous two games. The Bruins have been less successful this month with eight losses in 12 games (4-6-2), but appeared to be turning a corner ahead of Saturdays matchup with the Columbus Blue Jackets. Boston went in having won three of four, but was then routed 6-2 by hosting Columbus. Patrice Bergeron and Craig Cunningham scored for the Bruins, while backup Niklas Svedberg allowed three goals on 15 shots before getting lifted less than seven minutes into the second period. Tuukka Rask made 12 saves in relief, also allowing three goals. Its hard to find words after a game like this, Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara said. We started putting some (wins) together and climbing the standings, and now here we go again. Both Bergeron and Milan Lucic are day-to-day with undisclosed injuries, having not practiced on Sunday. Neither has been ruled out for this game, but forward Jordan Caron was recalled from the minors. The Bruins have lost eight of their past 10 against the Red Wings, but did snap a four-game series losing streak with a 3-2 shootout victory in Detroit on Oct. 15. The Red Wings have won three of their past four in Boston and Howard has gone an excellent 5-1-1 in seven career starts versus the Bruins with a 1.95 goals against average and .937 save percentage. Conversely, Rask is just 2-5-1 in eight matchups with the Red Wings, posting a 3.10 GAA and .877 save percentage. Custom Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys . Speaking with TSN 1050 following Brendan Shanahans introductory press conference, the Leafs GM also addressed the clubs perceived leadership issues and the type of working relationship that can be expected within Torontos front office. Steven Adams Jersey . The day began ominously for the Rangers when star pitcher Yu Darvish was scratched from his scheduled start with stiffness in his neck. Fill-in Scott Baker gave up three hits over six innings and Chris Gimenez hit a tiebreaking two-out RBI single in the sixth off Phil Hughes.Opportunity. First you have to recognize it before you can capitalize on it. I believe that in a sport, that is why there is always an emotional response after losing; because you realize the opportunity was there and you or your team could not capitalize on it. And it means you have not one less that year but one less in life. For the Bengals, Eagles, Packers and Chiefs, its over. For the Colts, Saints, Chargers and 49ers the next opportunity is next week. It is so true, the statement that losing hurts more than winning feels good because when you win you have another chance but when you lose in the playoffs, its like someone has taken away a moment in time you will never get back. An opportunity. In San Francisco, my number one observation was how well Colin Kaepernick handled the cold. The atmosphere that he performed in was brutal but he grew up in Wisconsin and was why he played so well in that weather. There he was in his sleeveless shirt running with conviction and gazelle speed. His greatest moment? After he almost lost the game by throwing right at Micah Hyde for an interception he stayed mentally tough, dismissed it and moved on to the next one when he hit Michael Crabtree changing third down to first down. That was Payton Manning/Tom Brady maturity under pressure. My second observation came from Green Bay and Eddie Lacy . Like Kaepernick, Lacy played a physical game in -18 Celsius weather. Lacy is from the University of Alabama, where I doubt it has ever been -18 in a football game. Extreme heat takes away your energy and second effort because of internal fatigue. It takes away your will to do extra because you sub-consciously pace yourself. Extreme cold is different; its limiting because it is so uncomfortable and painful too hit and be hit. I saw now hesitation from Lacy due to the cold, which is remarkable considering how hard and constant he dealt and receive punishment. In Cincinnati, the loss to San Diego has ruined Andy Daltons next six months. Five overthrows, two interceptions and one contact fumble he will think about day after day, month after month. And there is nothing he can do to rectify it until the season starts again. You can tell that Dalton is mentally tough but to keep it in perspective and move on is a mental mind set only developed when created in the first place. You cant prepare; only react and accept. In Indianapolis, I thought it was over but after the first comeback touchdown by Andrew Luck and how fast it happened I realized it wasnt. The Chiefs lost six players to injury in one game, quarter-by-quarter, and the biggest was Jamaal Charles oon the sixth play. Terrance Ferguson Jersey. That was devastating because as good as the back-up Nail Davis was (lost him too), he is not Jamaal Charles. Full credit to the Colts but I am sure Bill Belichick in New England is not anticipating losing Stevan Ridley, Shane Vereen, Donald Jones, Aqib Talib and Rob Ninkovich. That would be the equivalent. I will say this, though; if you can put the negative behind you and truly only concentrate on the present, given talent, you can overcome just about anything. Andrew Luck is an athlete that is way up there – bright, intelligent and a product of Stanford. I remember playing Stanford every year in college football. It was always an unusual game and almost different than any game that year. When you played Stanford, you (for lack of a better term) you played brains as much as bodies. They were always under control and focused; like robots. Andrew Lucks greatest asset is the emotional self-control he assimilated at Stanford; staying in the present to create the future. With New Orleans, I though one of the best football analytical moments was when Mike Mayock (who is very good) pointed out how Keenan Lewis was shutting down DeSean Jackson and then receives a neck stinger or concussion and Jackson then - and only then with Lewis out - becames effective. It just showed that it is 11-on-11 but if you have players who can dominate 1-on-1, it directly effects the other 10. Great moment From Mayock. Finally, the best week of the year may be this week because the questions have so many layered answers and speculation. New Orleans at Seattle; the environment is a big challenge for the Saints but this is the second time in a month and it just may be more manageable than ever before. In Carolina, the 49ers and Panthers are identical in so many ways. Carolina defended the 49ers to nine points in the first game but can they do it for a second time? That is a challenge. In Denver, you would have to think that the Chargers were the last team they wanted to play compared to others out of division. San Diego knows Payton Manning, having beaten Denver in Denver and the head coach, Mike McCoy, was the former offensive coordinator of the Broncos. Payton Manning destroys teams that are not familiar with him, those that have a chance. San Diego has a chance. In New England, with two weeks to prepare, I have to lean to the Patriots. After what we saw in the second half, the preparation video for New England is gold. The last one for the Colts was against the Bills in a cold monsoon. Aqib Talib on T.Y. Hilton; that could determine that game. China Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Throwback China NFL Hoodies NFL Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Jerseys From China ' ' '
