OTTAWA -- The Ottawa Senators said they needed four points this weekend to make a serious playoff push. Anthony Gose Jersey . After an overtime loss Saturday in Montreal and a 3-1 defeat on home ice to the Colorado Avalanche, the Senators walked away from their weekend games with just one point. "It was a big weekend for us and we lose both games," said Senators captain Jason Spezza. "We played good but its a different way to lose every night and results are the only thing that matter right now. "We didnt turn the puck over much, we created a lot but again. It just wasnt enough to win the game and its unacceptable." Andre Benoit, Nick Holden and John Mitchell scored for the Avalanche (44-19-5) while Matt Duchene had two assists as Colorado picked its third win in four games, and seventh in its past nine. Semyon Varlamov made 38 saves. The Colorado goalie was just six seconds away from his second shutout of the season and 13th in his career until Mika Zibanejad scored at 19:54. Robin Lehner made 19 saves in his second straight start for the Senators (28-26-13) since Craig Anderson was injured last week in a loss to the Nashville Predators. "Response to the game (Saturday) was positive," said Senators coach Paul MacLean. "A lot of the statistical things were positive, but at the end of the day its the score that matters and we gave up three goals and only scored one. "We created opportunities to score but I dont think we got to their net as hard as we could have and we missed the net a number of times." Nursing a 1-0 lead heading into the third period, the Avalanche were awarded their first and only power play of the game when Ottawa forward Chris Neil closed his hand on the puck and was called for delay of game. Duchene took a shot during the man advantage that Lehner stopped but the rebound went right to Holden, who was alone at the side of the net and scored at 3:10. "The power play was sharp again, we had only one opportunity but scored a very important goal for us," Avalanche coach Patrick Roy said before praising the play of his goaltender. "He was very solid and he made some very key saves. I thought we had too many turnovers in that second period. Our goalie was without a doubt the first star of the game." The Senators pressed throughout the period, but the game was virtually over when Mitchell beat Lehner from in tight with less than three minutes to go in the game. Following a scoreless opening period, Ottawa held a heavy edge in play over the second 20 minutes. Ottawa outshot the Avalanche 20-8 in the second period but it was former Senator Andre Benoit that scored the periods only goal and gave Colorado a 1-0 lead in the process. The Avalanche broke out three-on-one late in the period and after receiving a drop pass from Patrick Bordeleau, Benoit moved into the slot and put a shot over the shoulder of Lehner. "Its always fun to score against an old team and I had lots of family and friends here. Hopefully they keep going in," said Benoit, who is from St. Albert, about 30 minutes from Ottawa. "It was a big game and we were able to get a win. We have to keep this going now." Benoit was a fan favourite in Ottawa despite playing just 41 games for the Senators over two seasons. He has played in 66 of Colorados 68 games this season and has nine goals in 107 career games. Four of those have come in his last nine games. Notes: Matt Kassian, Patrick Wiercioch and Craig Anderson were scratches Sunday for the Senators. Scratches for the Avalanche were P.A. Parenteau, Paul Stastny, Paul Carey, Ryan Wilson and Reto BerraaSenators defenceman Erik Karlsson played his 300th NHL game on Sunday. Forward Kyle Turris played in his 300th game Saturday in the Senators loss to MontrealaThe last time the Avalanche recorded 44 wins in a season was back in 2007-08aThe Avalanche are the only team in the NHL to sore at least one goal in every game this season. Dallas Keuchel Astros Jersey . -- Jaye Marie Green shot a course-record 10-under 62 on Wednesday to take the first-round lead in the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament. Justin Verlander Jersey .com) - Charlie Davies netted a pair of goals, including the series-winner on Saturday, as the New England Revolution battled the New York Red Bulls to a 2-2 draw in the second leg of the Eastern Conference Championship at Gillette Stadium and advanced to MLS Cup final via a thrilling 4-3 aggregate victory. .2 million deal for the upcoming season with right-hander Garrett Richards.The person spoke on condition of anonymity Saturday because the announcement hadnt been made.WASHINGTON - A decade ago, the Chicago Blackhawks and Washington Capitals shared rock bottom. They were cellar-dwellers in the standings and in the stands.Capitals forward Brooks Laich remembers looking out from the tunnel at Verizon Center and players saying to each other before some games that it was S.O.S. night: Sold-Out Section. Once-proud hockey towns, Chicago and Washington were home to many empty seats and empty arenas come playoff time.Now, it couldnt be more opposite as the Blackhawks lead the NHL in attendance and the Capitals are in the top half of the league. And while the two teams are success stories, the Blackhawks cashed in on the years of losing to win the Stanley Cup twice, while the Capitals are still a work in progress.We both have come from the ashes, if you will, to be pretty strong franchises this last decade, Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. The one thing we havent done, we havent won a banner. Weve won the smaller banners, but we havent won the big one. Thats what I know this ownership and this organization wants to do.When Alex Ovechkin looks across the ice at Nationals Park during Thursdays Winter Classic, the Capitals captain and the man most responsible for the American capitals resurgence as a hockey town sees the Blackhawks as the team that sets the bar.They won a couple Stanley Cups and they have that kind of experience and theyre kind of a role-model team, Ovechkin said. I think we as a group, its time to move forward. We have to take this time and its up to be our time.The Blackhawks werent always worth emulating. Beginning in 1997-98, they went to the playoffs just once in the next 10 seasons, finished last three times and were consistently one of the worst-drawing teams in the NHL.Trotz, who coached the Nashville Predators from their inception, remembers that expansion team finishing ahead of the Blackhawks. Those were the lean times.The Blackhawks didnt help themselves early, missing on first-round picks like Mark Bell, Steve McCarthy, Mikhail Yakubov and Pavel Vorobiev. Things began to change in 2002 when they spent a second-rounder on Duncan Keith, and in 2003 when they got Brent Seabrook, Corey Crawford and Dustin Byfuglien.By the summer of 2007, Chicago had selected Dave Bolland, Bryan Bickell, Niklas Hjalmarsson, Troy Brouwer and most importantly franchise cornerstones Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. Attendance rose along with the tide of winning, and by 2008-09, United Center was the most packed building in the league.That season featured the Blackhawks first Winter Classic, against the Detroit Red Wings at Wrigley Field. That was the beginning of their rise to prominence.That was kind of the start of everything, Toews said. That year was the first year we made the playoffs in a long time. I think it was just the first step towards this group putting the Blackhawks back on the map.The Blackhawks made it to the Western Conference final that season and won the Cup in 2010, ending a title drought that dated to 1961.They drafteed high and well in getting guys like Kane and Toews and they went out in free agency and added some good pieces like (Marian) Hossa and people like that, Trotz said. Yuli Gurriel Astros Jersey. Theyve done everything right. I think the Blackhawks are probably the gold standard right now in the National Hockey League.Dale Tallon began the process as general manager, then his successor, Stan Bowman, navigated through salary-cap woes and helped build the team back up to win again in 2013. Making playoff runs is now the expectation.We feel like were capable of doing that every year given the experience that we have at this point, Toews said.What makes Chicago the gold standard isnt just talent but the use of it by coach Joel Quenneville.I think lots of guys on our team understand their role, Hossa said. Weve got so much skill so nobodys worried about getting points or scoring goals because it just comes natural. People understand their roles, whether its a penalty-killing thing or guys back-checking hard and helping the team. Those little things make us big.The Capitals had their share of draft misses but hit on Ovechkin, Mike Green, Nicklas Backstrom, Karl Alzner and John Carlson. They beat the Blackhawks back to the playoffs and made it seven years in a row before missing in 2013-14.In those seven playoff appearances, though, the Capitals won only three series and never advanced past the second round. Brouwer grew up in the NHL with the Blackhawks and was on the team that won the 2010 Cup and has been part of three post-seasons in Washington.Theres been some growing pains for sure in this organization, Brouwer said. It has been a little bit longer, and not every team is going to excel in the same time frame. You need the right atmosphere, you need the right pieces. ... I know guys have been frustrated with Presidents Trophies and early exits in the playoffs — not quite getting there — but every year that Ive been here I feel like weve grown as a team.Trotz is the Capitals fourth coach since they became contenders, following Bruce Boudreau, Dale Hunter and Adam Oates. Absent winger Alexander Semin, who left in free agency, the core has remained very much in tact.Because of the changes and because of what has stayed the same, Capitals players must reconcile with the fact that this is a long journey to get over the playoff hump but that Trotz represents a fresh start.You learn from your experiences, said Green, whos in the final year of his contract. Were not the only team that goes through that sort of stage and whatnot.The maturation process is definitely going on with the Capitals, not just as players get older, get married and have children. Green said the mentality in the first season under Trotz has been team and family and working hard, and he believes its a recipe that will lead to success.As a team and an organization, were on that path, Green said. Its a matter of doing it every night and getting better each day. But were on our way.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Cheap Jerseys Online Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
