The Montreal Canadiens seek to rebound from their first home loss of the season on Tuesday night as they take on the Chicago Blackhawks. Juan Agudelo Jersey . You can catch all of the action on TSN 690 with coverage beginning at 6pm et. The Canadiens lost for the first time in five contests at the Bell Centre with a 6-2 setback to the Calgary Flames on Sunday. Six different skaters for the Flames had at least two points. Max Pacioretty and Rene Bourque scored for the Canadiens, who have lost three of their last four games (1-2-1). Carey Price gave up five goals on 35 shots. Montreal committed eight penalties, leading to six Calgary power plays. We have to learn to take the lead and score first and often, especially at home, said Canadiens coach Michel Therrien. Tonight there is no excuse. If youre not ready to compete youll never win in this league and tonight our team wasnt there. There were way too many penalties and its tough to accept a team that doesnt compete and (we) didnt tonight. The Habs will visit Buffalo on Wednesday, then return home for four straight. Price may get the start tonight, with backup Dustin Tokarski a possibility the following night versus the Sabres. Price is 3-1-0 with a 1.49 goals against average and .953 save percentage in his career versus Chicago. The Blackhawks are hoping to avoid a third straight loss after getting blanked 1-0 by Winnipeg on Sunday. The Jets scored on their first shift, with former Chicago skater Michael Frolik getting the goal 20 seconds in, and Michael Hutchinson turned aside all 33 shots he faced. Corey Crawford was a hard-luck loser, making 26 saves for the Blackhawks, who fell to 2-5-0 in their last seven games after opening the season on a five- game point streak. Tough first shift, Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville said. Crawford played for a second consecutive day after returning from a six-game absence because of a lower body injury to make 24 saves in Saturdays 3-2 loss in Toronto. The Blackhawks ripped off 47 shots against James Reimer and the Maple Leafs, including 26 in a scoreless third period that Quenneville said might have been one of their best periods of the season. They had another good third period Sunday, firing 13 shots at the 24-year-old Hutchinson. Crawford could be in line to start again tonight and is 2-0-2 with a 1.73 GAA and .944 save percentage lifetime versus the Canadiens. The home team has won 10 straight meetings in this matchup, with the Blackhawks losing six in a row and seven of their last eight in Montreal. They have not won at the Bell Centre since Dec. 3, 2001.

For one, he still gets to crank the intensity to the max. "I push pretty angry. I ran pretty angry too though, but I have fun doing it," Lumsden said. Sebastian Lletget Jersey . Setting United on its way to a 2-0 victory, Rooney sent the ball high from inside the halfway line over goalkeeper Adrian after just seven minutes. "Its just instinct, Ive turned and had a quick look and seen the goalkeeper off his line," Rooney said. http://www.usasoccerauthority.com/chris-pontius-usa-jersey/ . Still, Milan remained five points behind city rival Inter Milan in the race for fifth place and the final Europa League berth, after Inter beat 10-man Parma 2-0. Meanwhile, Paul Pogba led the way as Juventus stayed on course for a third consecutive title with a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Bologna.Leicesters Premier League title charge was built on exhilarating attacking in the first half of the season, but their mean defence is coming to the fore now. Ahead of their meeting with Southampton on Super Sunday, we take a look at how the high-flying Foxes have adapted… When Leicester sat top of the table at Christmas it was largely thanks to a formidable record of 37 goals in 17 games. Jamie Vardys record-breaking scoring run had propelled the relegation-favourites to unthinkable heights, but when his goals started drying up it was widely anticipated the magic would fade and the Foxes would start to slide.Their defensive record did not exactly cry out solidity, after all. Leicester had conceded 24 times in those 17 games - the same number as relegation-threatened Swansea - and it wasnt until late October that Claudio Ranieri had to come good on his promise of pizza to reward their first clean sheet of the season. Three months on, however, and Leicesters players are dining on pizza almost every week. Last weekends victory over Crystal Palace was their fourth 1-0 win in five games, and Premier League viewers have become accustomed to seeing them at the top of the pile.The Foxes are now just seven games away from making history with a title challenge that is rapidly gathering momentum. Leicesters Premier League record before and after Christmas Leicester 2015/16 Before Christmas After Christmas Games played 17 14 Wins 11 8 Draws 5 4 Losses 1 2 Goals scored 37 17 Goals conceded 24 7 Clean sheets 3 9 Leicester remain a deadly force on the counter-attack, but the statistics illustrate how the emphasis has shifted since Christmas. Before then, the Foxes were averaging 2.2 goals per game, but they have only netted 17 times in 14 outings since then at a rate of just 1.2 goals per game.Despite the drop-off in goals scored, however, Leicesters results have remained consistent, with their average points per game only falling slightly (from 2.4 before Christmas to 2.0 afterwards) while their lead at the top of the table continues to grow. Leicesters Premier League record before and after Christmas Leicester 2015/16 Before Christmas After Christmas Goals per game 2.2 1.2 Shots on target per game 5.1 3.9 Goals conceded per game 1.4 0.5 Shots on target faced per game 4.2 3.4 Points per game 2.2 2.0 A run of four shut-outs in five games has highlighted their defensive resilience in recent weeks, but the stinginess has been apparent for months. Eric Lichaj Jersey. Since Christmas, and with help from midfield enforcer NGolo Kante, a first-choice back five of Kasper Schmeichel, Danny Simpson, Robert Huth, Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs has only been breached seven times.Once we got that first clean sheet, it cemented the idea in peoples heads that keeping a clean sheet is a great foundation to build upon, said back-up goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer on Sky Sports News HQ. Weve got players who will always score goals, so if you can keep a clean sheet when the season gets tighter and the pressure starts to mount, you can win games by the odd goal. Mark Schwarzer highlights Leicesters defence as the key to their recent form Having found defensive shut-outs so hard to come by at the start of the campaign, Leicester have now kept nine in their last 13 games. In the same period, no other Premier League side has managed more than seven. They have the look of champions about them, noted Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp in his Daily Mail column - and hes not the only one to have been impressed.They dont give a lot away, said Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew after Riyad Mahrezs first-half strike settled last weekends game at Selhurst Park. Theyre underestimated defensively. Theyve got energy and theyre up to the ball all the time. Theyre tight and its difficult to create against them. Most Premier League clean sheets since Christmas Team Clean sheets Leicester 9 Southampton 7 Arsenal 6 Manchester City 6 The two centre-halves are confident in possession, they rarely make mistakes and they dont slash at clearances. They make good clearances from their defensive third and theyre fast. They have a lovely balance to the team and you have to admire them.Leicester have also had to adapt to their opponents attempts to nullify their goalscoring threat. The Foxes thrived in the first half of the season by ceding possession to their rivals, waiting for mistakes and springing forward on the counter-attack, but since their 2-1 defeat to Arsenal the likes of Norwich and West Brom have played them at their own game. Kasper Schmeichel, Robert Huth and Christian Fuchs have shone in recent weeks The Foxes have therefore averaged 53.4 per cent possession in the last five games compared to 40.5 per cent earlier in the season. The enforced change of approach has resulted in fewer opportunities for Ranieris attackers to get in behind, but their defensive solidity has made the difference at the other end.Leicester are now within touching distance of one of the most extraordinary achievements in football history, and while Mahrez and Vardy are likely to battle it out for the player of the year gong, they are certainly not the only individuals who are due a considerable share of the credit.
