    导出博客文章CHICAGO -- Even with budding star Auston Matthews emerging as the face of one of the NHLs youngest rosters and most storied franchises, the Toronto Maple Leafs are experiencing growing pains. Steve Nash Jersey .Toronto will try to come away with a win in the finale of their three-game road trip on Saturday night against the Chicago Blackhawks in a matchup of Original Six clubs.The Maple Leafs (1-1-2) fell 3-2 at Minnesota on Thursday, one night after seeing a four-goal lead disappear in a 5-4 overtime loss at Winnipeg. However, coach Mike Babcock isnt disappointed.I think weve done a lot of good things, Babcock said after the loss to the Wild. Were .500 after four (games), and so as we grow up here a little bit, weve just got to hang in the hunt as best as we can because were going to get better fast.That might be a difficult task against a team that has won three Stanley Cups since 2010. Toronto has been outscored 15-3 in three consecutive losses to the Blackhawks, including a 7-2 setback on Feb. 15 at the United Center where the Maple Leafs surrendered four power-play goals.Matthews, the top overall pick in last Junes NHL Draft, is tied for the league lead with five goals but has just one since his record-setting debut in a loss to Ottawa on Oct. 12.Its a learning process. Were still a young team, but were competing day in and day out, so I think were heading in the right direction, the 19-year-old center said after the loss to Minnesota.One player looking forward to Saturday is Toronto defenseman Connor Carrick, who grew up in suburban Orland Park, about 25 miles from the United Center. He scored his only goal of the season in Wednesdays loss to the Jets.You want to close the opportunities you get in this league, make sure you finish, stomp on the other teams will, so to speak, Carrick told the Toronto Sun. Its hard to get the full two points in this league and you just dont want it to slip away. We want to reverse that trend.After backup goaltender Jhonas Enroth played against Minnesota, Fredrik Andersen will likely face the Blackhawks. In his only start at Chicago early last season while with Anaheim, Andersen surrendered the lone goal in a 1-0 overtime loss.Chicago (2-3-0) opens a stretch in which it plays four of the next five at home after falling 3-2 decision on Friday at Columbus. Rookie Tyler Motte scored his first NHL goal and Richard Panik, a former Maple Leafs player, produced his fifth in five games to tie Matthews for the league lead.Panik posted a career-high 11 goals in 76 games with Toronto in 2014-15. He leads Chicago with seven points even though the Blackhawks feature two of the leagues dynamic players in Patrick Kane and Artemi Panarin.Last season en route to winning the Hart Trophy as the leagues MVP, Kane had four goals and four assists in both wins over Toronto with five of those points coming on the power play.Panarin, the Calder Trophy winner as the NHLs top rookie in 2015-16, had two goals and three assists in two games against the Leafs.But a big issue for Chicago this season has been penalty killing. The Blackhawks are last in the NHL, having surrendered 11 goals in 19 short-handed situations.We have to hit the reset button and just bear down and find a way to get it done because its losing us games right now, defenseman Niklas Hjalmarsson told the Blackhawks official website.Corey Crawford stopped 25 shots Friday. However, with games on back-to-back nights, the Blackhawks could start Scott Darling, who recorded a 1.51 goals-against average while winning both matchups with the Maple Leafs in 2015-16.Chicago played Friday without Marian Hossa, who became the 44th player in NHL history to score 500 goals in a win over Philadelphia on Tuesday. Hossa is day to day with a lower body injury.Trevor van Riemsdyk, a healthy scratch the previous three games, left Fridays game with an upper-body injury and could be out a bit, according to the team. Authentic Mavericks Jerseys . LeBron James and Chris Bosh didnt need any more. Williams scored 11 points in 10 minutes, Alan Anderson scored 17 points, and the Brooklyn Nets finished the exhibition season with a 108-87 win over the Miami Heat on Friday night. Yogi Ferrell Jersey .com) - The game was all punts and field goals before Kodi Whitfields catch. . McCarthy, a player who played some games in the second tier for Wigan at the start of this season, would go on to shine inside Evertons midfield, outplaying the man he was brought in to replace, on one of the grandest stages in English football. On Saturday, it was fitting that Manchester Uniteds most recent dagger into the chest was delivered by Frenchman Yohan Cabaye, a wonderfully gifted central midfielder who put on an outstanding effort for Newcastle at Old Trafford. On March 30, 1981, the Indiana Hoosiers earned the coveted title of NCAA champions. Seeded third in the Mideast Region, they routed the North Carolina?Tar Heels (No. 2 in the West) 63-50 at the Spectrum in Philadelphia.This past Wednesday, the Hoosiers once again trumped the Tar Heels. And who was in attendance but the 1980-81 IU mens basketball team.Well, most of them.The 81 squad came to watch and cheer on its alma mater as part of a ceremony to commemorate the 35th anniversary of their national title win. The players in attendance were honored at halftime, but one?lesser-known member of that?team wasnt there: Mike LaFave. LaFave played for Indiana his freshman and sophomore years before transferring to Ball State for his final two seasons.?He died?at?age?46 from a sudden heart attack in 2009. Taking LaFaves place during the ceremony on Weddnesday was his son, Jeff LaFave, who penned a moving tribute to his father that was posted on Hoosier Sports Report prior to tipoff. Youth Mavericks Jerseys. .As Jeff put it: Indianas 1980-81 mens basketball championship team was studded with legendary players. My father, a backup freshman forward, was not necessarily one of them.Although never the superstar, what Mike LaFave imparted on his son -- and his?teammates -- from his time spent as a Hoosier was that sports can teach you how to treat people with respect, how to overcome adversity, and how to add value to a group, no matter what your role is.Character is what matters most, Jeff LaFave writes, and no championship ring was built to contain that legacy.--Meaghan Latella?
