3 Tuesday night. Tea

    PITTSBURGH -- The first-ever matchup between generational stars Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid did not disappoint -- unless you were an Edmonton Oilers fan, of course -- as the 19-year-old McDavid had three assists in a losing effort as the Pittsburgh Penguins erased a 3-1 deficit and edged the Oilers 4-3 Tuesday night. Team USA Hockey Jerseys From China .Lots to appreciate about this well-played, fast-paced game, but lets first focus on McDavid, who showed little stage fright in playing his first game against Crosby, a player he idolized growing up.It wasnt just that the two first-overall draft picks, separated by a decade but forever linked by enormous expectations, were sharing the same ice for the first time -- they spent most of the night sharing the same space, too.For most of the first two periods and into the third, Penguins head coach Mike Sullivan matched Crosbys line with McDavids trio. And for much of the night, it was a strategy that looked as though it might backfire, as McDavid earned assists on two goals by Jordan Eberle and one by Patrick Maroon as the Oilers jumped out to a 3-1 lead early in the second period.On all three goals, McDavid illustrated just why he has many believing he could win a scoring title in his sophomore season, using blazing speed to open up space in the neutral zone and to create odd-man situations.The play that was most impressive came late in the first period as McDavid hustled back into the Oilers zone and knocked the puck loose from a streaking Carl Hagelin, turning the play up ice before feeding Maroon with a nice backhand pass to make it 2-1 Oilers.McDavids 17 points in 14 games have him in a tie for the scoring lead.As for Crosby, Tuesday marks the first game of the season he was held off the score sheet. But to suggest this was an off night for the star center would be to misinterpret what happened at PPG Paints Arena.It was Crosby who started the play that led to the Penguins second goal in the second period, directing a shot on net that eventually ended up as a Hagelin marker.Crosby was also working down low on the winner by Conor Sheary with less than two minutes to go in regulation, although he did not earn a point.And so Crosby will gladly take the two points in the standings -- the Penguins improve to 9-2-2 and 6-0-1 in the seven games in which Crosby has appeared this season -- even if he personally was denied points.As for McDavid, who actually made a great play to Eberle for what might have been a tying goal with netminder Cam Talbot on the bench in the waning seconds, hes got his first game against his hero under his belt and wont have to answer the same questions (or at least not as many) when the two teams meet in Edmonton on March 10.The big question for the Oilers -- who are now 9-4-1 -- and McDavid is what implications that next game may have for a team that hasnt been to the playoffs since 2006. If McDavid keeps this up, my guess is that game will have meaning far beyond Round 2 of McDavid versus Crosby. Matt Niskanen Jersey . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). Patrick Kane Jersey . The Islanders dealt Thomas Vanek to the Montreal Canadiens after less than a year on Long Island. Meanwhile, the Oilers dealt long-time sniper Ales hemsky to the Ottawa Senators on Wednesday for a fifth-round pick in 2014 and a third-rounder in 2015. http://www.cheapteamusahockeyjerseys.com/ryan-miller-jersey/ ;. The next step is a better finish. Bae played bogey-free Friday on another gorgeous day at Riviera for a 5-under 66, giving him a one-shot lead over Aaron Baddeley and Robert Garrigus going into the weekend. MANCHESTER, England -- Boos reverberated around a far-from-full Etihad Stadium as Manchester Citys players lined up for the Champions League anthem before their group game against Borussia Moenchengladbach.Pep Guardiola already has achieved plenty during his short time at City -- seven wins from his first seven games in charge is evidence of that -- but theres a sizeable task that still needs fixing: Getting the clubs fans to embrace the Champions League.City has had an uneasy relationship with Europes elite competition since becoming a regular presence in it from 2011.Initially, it was because of disappointing early results, perhaps due to a bigger focus on winning the Premier League. More recently, the issue has been UEFA, the Champions League organizer, which City fans perceive to have treated the club harshly over Financial Fair Play sanctions handed out in 2014.Also that year, many CSKA Moscow fans managed to watch a home game against City in group play despite the Russian club supposedly being hit with an empty-stadium order as punishment for racist behavior by its fans.Since then, City fans have booed the anthem that UEFA uses before Champions League games, while the club has regularly struggled to fill the stadium on European nights.It was the same old story on Wednesday, with only 30,270 spectators inside the 55,000-seater Etihad for a game City won 4-0 with some irresistible attacking football.Guardiola is in his first season at City and wants the fans to start afresh with the Champions League to give the team the best possible chance of winning the competition.They must forget what happened in the past, Guardiola said. The stadium was not completely full so the only thing we can do is play good so the people at home say, `Wow, next time I will be there. We have to be so proud to play in this competition.Our fans have to know we need them in the Champions League. In the Premier League, everyone ccomes here but in the Champions League they dont. Ryan McDonagh Jersey. We need them to compete against the best teams in the world. With our supporters and their songs, we are stronger.There were reasons why so many seats remained empty on Wednesday, primarily because the game was rescheduled at late notice after torrential rain forced a postponement of the original fixture on Tuesday. That seriously affected the number in the away contingent, which slumped from 1,600 fans to less than 1,000.Will Guardiolas message to the fans get through in time for Citys other home games in Group C, against Celtic and Barcelona?In three or four weeks are coming the best football player ever (Lionel Messi) with Luis Suarez and Neymar and Barcelona, and we have to enjoy it, Guardiola said.The people are listening so I am sure they are going to do that.Those who did turn up for the Moenchengladbach game would have been happy they made the effort. Guardiola said it was the teams best overall display since he took over, with chances created with ease and regularity.Sergio Aguero scored a hat trick and there was a promising debut for Germany international Ilkay Gundogan, a late call-up to midfield after David Silva pulled out on the morning of the game after feeling uncomfortable in training.Its 21 goals in seven games so far for City, which can only get smoother under Guardiola. Thats a terrifying prospect for Citys rivals.There was one moment midway through the first half that summed up the new City. Winger Jesus Navas won a 50-50 tackle in central midfield, span and played a throughball to left back Aleksandar Kolarov, who found himself in the center-forward position.Its total football under Guardiola.The way (City) played in these six, seven games, he said, I am so confident I am going to enjoy this year. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap Wholesale Authentic Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Authentic Jerseys ' ' '
