    RENTON, Wash. Custom New York Islanders Jerseys . -- The idea of going to Green Bay in December, with the expected cold temperatures and the likelihood of snow, might have caused issues in the past for the Seattle Seahawks.Not anymore. Not after what the Seahawks experienced last January in Minnesota in the first round of the playoffs.You cant get any worse than we had in Minnesota, cornerback Richard Sherman said. Everything else is an oven compared to that.The experience during the NFC wild card game forever changed how the Seahawks view any sort of issues presented by the weather. Seattles 10-9 victory over the Vikings came in the third-coldest game in NFL history, a frigid minus-6 degrees, with wind chills in the minus-20s throughout that miserable day.The scope of whats cold and what players can put up with was completely altered after that experience. And it makes the forecast for Sunday in Green Bay pleasant by comparison. The forecast for Sunday calls for temperatures in the 20s and a chance of snow.Were having a bullish approach to the whole thing, you really have to be tough-minded, quarterback Russell Wilson said. We want a tough environment, we look forward to those types of situations and Im hoping its coming down, Im hoping its snowing. Im hoping its kind of a downpour of snow. That would be great.The conditions Seattle played through in Minnesota will likely never be topped. Shermans most vivid memory was going out for pregame warmups and having his contact lenses freeze up. He had not put a visor on his facemask all season, but had one added before that game, trying to create a layer of protection between the cold and his contacts.People with beards had a really rough time. You spray water on yourself or drink water and any water on your beard is frozen, so you have to be aware of that, Sherman said. After that youre just kind of playing. Whatever youve got, however fast you can move, everybody is moving at about the same speed because nobody can go 100 percent because your body wont function.Linebacker Bobby Wagner didnt wear sleeves against Minnesota and wont again against Green Bay. The toughest part for him was the time between the start of the game and when his body started to feel numb.As you play you get numb and then you dont even feel it come second quarter. You just have to get to the numb part, Wagner said.Should snow fall on Sunday, it would be a first for many of Seattles players, Sherman being one of them. Coach Pete Carroll has plenty of experience in adverse conditions from his time as a coach in the AFC East with both New England and the New York Jets.We played in all the weather that you can imagine, Carroll said. Never as cold as Minnesota last time out, but very messy weather and windy and all that kind of stuff. I feel very comfortable with it.Game notes LB Mike Morgan (hip) was listed as questionable on Fridays injury report but Carroll said Morgan would dress for the game. Morgan returned from a stint on injured reserve last week against Carolina. ... DE Damontre Moore (foot) will miss Sundays game with a ligament issue in his foot that flared up after going through a full practice Thursday. Moore has played well in limited action as part of a rotation on the defensive line.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Ryan Pulock Jersey . Bradwell was scheduled to become a free agent Tuesday. Born and raised in Toronto, Bradwell is entering his sixth CFL season, with all six played for his hometown Argonauts. Nikolay Kulemin Jersey .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup. http://www.hockeyislandersonline.us/Clark-Gillies-Jersey/ . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. MONTREAL -- Michel Therrien liked what he saw from the Montreal Canadiens power play. He is still going to keep tinkering with it.Looking to jump start Montreals stalled power play, Therrien shuffled some players around and that was the difference as the Canadiens beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 on Monday night to extend their winning streak to four games.First-place Montreal (5-0-1) remains the only NHL team unbeaten in regulation time.The main change was putting forward Alexander Radulov on the point with Shea Weber on Montreals first power play. That strategy paid dividends in the third period when Brendan Gallagher tipped Radulovs shot from the point past Steve Mason at 13:08 to break a 1-1 tie.We still need to work on it, we need a little more chemistry, Therrien said. It would have been too easy to go back to the old formula, but we wanted to stick with our four forwards and one defenseman, and theyre the ones who won it for us tonight.Therrien felt a change was necessary as the Canadiens came into the game 3 for 21 with the man advantage, 20th in the NHL.The experiment looked to have backfired though as Montreal went 0 for 3 with the man advantage to start the game. But Gallagher needed just four seconds into the teams fourth opportunity of the night to deflect Radulovs shot into the net.They won the faceoff there and Webers set up for a one-timer, so theres that option, said Mason, describing Montreals game-winner. But he gives it right back to Radulov. And he shoots it, and I got a good line on it, but Gallagher got his stick on there and changed the direction in front of me.Radulov finished with an empty-net goal, two assists, five hits, and he drew a penalty in the second period.It was different because I havent played a lot in thatt spot, Radulov said of his position at the point. Casey Cizikas Jersey. But with a partner like Shea Weber its easy. I always try to look to my right to give him the puck because he has a bomb and we have to use that more.Radulov got an assist on Montreals first goal. Weber put Montreal on the board at 5:28 of the second period with his second goal of the season.After good work behind the net by Radulov to get the puck back to the point, Weber fired a slap shot that broke Brayden Schenns stick and deflected into the net.The game was fast and I wanted to be ready, said Radulov, who has five points this season. I dont want to take any shift off. The guys here know what it takes to win.Carey Price made 31 saves in his third consecutive win to start the season.I wish he had the flu again tonight but its not the case, Claude Giroux of the Flyers said of Price. Hes one of the best. We did a lot of good things tonight. They were able to get that power-play goal in the third to get the lead, but as a team we played a really good road game.After Webers goal, the Flyers (2-3-1) tied it in the second period when Jakub Voracek deflected Girouxs shot past Price at 11:47. The goal came just seconds after Price denied Voracek all alone in front of goal.Voracek has three goals in six games this season.Game notes Mason stopped 30 of 32 shots in defeat. . Price played his 450th game with the Canadiens. . This was the first of three meetings between the teams this season. They meet again Nov. 5 in Montreal.UP NEXT:Flyers: play the second of a back-to-back at home against Buffalo on Tuesday.Canadiens: are at the New York Islanders on Wednesday.
