Jose Sharks club that is kicking off an 11-day ro

    (SportsNetwork. Orioles Austin Hays Jersey .com) - The Dallas Stars will try to avoid their longest losing streak since 2009 on Saturday night as they take on a San Jose Sharks club that is kicking off an 11-day road trip. The Stars are coming off a 3-2 loss at home to the Nashville Predators, getting goals from Trevor Daley and Patrick Eaves as well as 30 saves by Kari Lehtonen. Dallas had some chances at the end of the game, with Jamie Benn missing a wide-open net wide before Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne came up with several big saves. That included one on a bouncing puck as the final horn sounded as the Stars fell to 0-4-2 in their last six games. I think (Rinne) was the difference maker at the end, said Dallas head coach Lindy Ruff. The Stars will now try to avoid going without a point in seven straight for the first time since an 0-5-2 rut from March 17-30, 2009. They may attempt to do so without forward Cody Eakin, who is day-to-day with an upper-body injury that held him out of Thursdays loss. Lehtonen is 5-7-3 with a 3.30 goals against average and .908 save percentage in 15 career meetings with the Sharks. San Jose is set to play seven times over its road trip, but head to Dallas on a sour note following Thursdays 3-2 loss to the visiting Vancouver Canucks. The Sharks had won three of four, but couldnt top the Canucks despite a 36-19 shot advantage. James Sheppard and Logan Couture scored for the Sharks and Joe Thornton nearly forced overtime on a a shot that banked off of Vancouver goaltender Ryan Miller. However, time had just expired before the puck went into the net. I think we played hard, said Sheppard. Im sure we will bounce back and take what we can from this game. Antti Niemi made 16 saves in his fifth straight start and figures to get a rest either tonight or on Sunday in Chicago. He is 9-4-5 with a 2.28 GAA and .920 save percentage in his career versus the Stars, while backup Alex Stalock has won both of his previous meetings with the club, stopping 63-of-66 shots faced. The Sharks are 3-0-1 in their past four versus the Stars, but 1-2-2 in their last five trips to Dallas. Orioles Pedro Araujo Jersey . Andrew Luck couldnt believe his ears.

The Oakland Athletics outfielder simply trusted his own strength. Cespedes became the first repeat winner of the All-Star skills contest in 15 years, powering his way past Cincinnatis Todd Frazier 9-1 in the final round Monday night. Ken Griffey Jr. took the title in 1998 and 1999. With a serious, determined look on his face the whole time, Cespedes finished with 28 homers. That was four fewer than last year, when he beat Washingtons Bryce Harper 9-8 in the final round. The 28-year-old Cuban even told Athletics teammate Josh Donaldson he was doing this wrong. "I knew he wasnt going to win because his mentality was to take the ball out of the stadium, and I told him that is not the way you win this competition," Cespedes said through an interpreter. He added: "Im somebody whos very conscious of the power that I have. So I dont need to put more of a swing or more of an effort in order to hit a home run. I just have to look for a good pitch and put a good swing on it, and it usually takes care of it." Cespedes saved his best for last, a 452-foot blast to the third deck above left field that officially measured as the longest of the night. As third base coach Mike Gallego again pitched to Cespedes, who went deep 32 times in last years derby at Citi Field in New York. Gallegos arm looked nearly out of gas by the final round, which started after 10:30 p.m. local time. "Maybe next year Ill put up a better showing at the end," Frazier said. "Now that I understand, maybe Ill do a couple of more push-ups." Cespedes topped Torontos Jose Bautista, and Frazier surprisingly beat Miamis Giancarlo Stanton in the semifinals. Bautista and Stanton each earned a bye to the semifinals under the new bracketed format, which gave each player seven outs and pitted the survivors from each side in the final round. Bautista went deep 10 times in the first round, keeping the fans in the second deck above left field on their toes, and Stanton hit six. That was all for him, though. After a long wait for his next turn, Stanton put up a zero in the semifinals and let Frazier advance with only one. Oh, but Stantons six were beauties. One landed in the thirrd deck above left field, about a half-dozen rows shy of the very top of the ballpark. Orioles Luis Ortiz Jersey. Another reached the second deck above the centre field batters eye, a place never touched by a ball during an actual game here. Bautista, the AL captain, has 11 home runs in 14 regular-season games here, the most by any visiting player. Thats only one less than Twins cornerstone Joe Mauer, who has played 284 career games at Target Field. Cespedes, who beat Donaldson in a tiebreaker after each finished with three in the first round, breezed by Baltimores Adam Jones in the second round. Frazier topped NL captain Troy Tulowitzki on the other side. Colorados Justin Morneau, the fan favourite after 10-plus years and four All-Star games for the host Twins, was eliminated in the first round. Morneau returned to his roots, and so did the event itself, considering the inaugural contest was held at the Metrodome before the 1985 All-Star game. Admission then was a mere $2, slightly less than the $200-and-up price tags on the derby these days. The original form was actually a 1960s-era television show, featuring sluggers like Harmon Killebrew of the Twins. Morneau is from New Westminster, B.C. Delayed 54 minutes by light rain on an unseasonably cool night -- even for Minnesota -- with a start-time temperature of 59 degrees, the contest began with a rainbow protruding from the clouds beyond left-centre field that framed this limestone-encased ballpark that opened in 2010. Frazier went first, and while he went deep twice, he didnt quite reach the rainbow. Neither did Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, the smallest of the participants who had the backing of the crowd with chants of his last name during his two-homer round. "Even my brother he said he got chills," said Dozier, one of seven first-time participants. His brother, Clay, was his pitcher. The loudest roars were for Morneau, the only left-hander in the event his year. His third derby appearance brought the fans to their feet with AC/DCs "Thunderstruck" blaring in the background, and he hit two in the first round before Frazier beat him in the three-swing tiebreaker. The only player shut out? Dodgers sparkplug Yasiel Puig. He was the first homerless participant since Robinson Cano two years ago in Kansas City. Cheap Nike Chiefs Jerseys Chargers Jerseys China Wholesale Raiders Jerseys China Cowboys Jerseys China Cheap Giants Jerseys HoodiesCheap Eagles Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike Redskins Jerseys Lions Jerseys China Green Bay Packers Jerseys For Sale Wholesale Vikings Jerseys China Panthers Jerseys China Saints Jerseys China Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Free Shipping Wholesale Cardinals Jerseys China Cheap Nike Rams Jerseys 49ers Jerseys China Wholesale Seahawks Jerseys China Cheap Nike Bears Jerseys Bills Jerseys China Cheap Nike Ravens Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Hoodies ' ' '
