Canada was once again unbeaten in the tournament, posting a 6-0-1 mark to finish a point ahead of the Soviets. Despite having home-ice advantage and a line-up that included Alexander Mogilny and Sergei Fedorov, the Russians again failed to beat Canada, dropping a 3-2 decision that was sweet revenge for the Canadian squad and all but sealed the gold medal. Canadas only blemish in 1988 was a 4-4 tie with Finland, which earned the bronze medal. Team Canada was loaded with big names that would go on to NHL stardom. Joe Sakic scored three goals, Theo Fleury and Rob Brown each had six, Adam Graves scored five times, and Mark Recchi counted five assists. Young Trevor Linden, on his way to a stellar NHL career, was a bit player with Team Canada in 1988, scoring once. The defence was led by Greg Hawgood, the teams top scorer with nine points, and Chris Joseph. They helped hold opponents to a tournament low 16 goals in seven games. It was goaltending, however, that separated Canada from the rest of the field. Jimmy Waite played all seven games and played perhaps the best hockey of his life. He was named the top goaltender in the tournament and earned an all-star berth to boot. Waite was joined on the all-star team by Fleury and Hawgood. The 1988 national junior team still holds a special place in the hearts of many Canadians, not just for winning with speed, style and hell-bent enthusiasm, but for avenging the embarassment of 87. There are many who still believe that if Canada had not been disqualified the year before, the 1988 team would have been celebrating Canadas first ever back-to-back championships.

For the Bombers it has been a combination of things coming together at the most inappropriate moments in time. Quarterback, injuries, Canadian talent or depth and leadership are all issues. Trust me when I say being a Bomber is no fun right now in a city that embraces football the way Winnipeg does. While Buck Pierce will be getting another shot, I think Max Hall does deserve another opportunity. Sam Reinhart Jersey . James scored 25 points against his former team, leading the energized Heat to a 114-107 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night. Dwyane Wade added 24 points and Chris Bosh had 22 for the Heat, idle since a 90-84 loss Tuesday at Indiana.The Winnipeg Jets will look to prevent the Minnesota Wild from clinching a playoff spot tonight at the MTS Centre. The game can be seen live regionally on TSN Jets and heard on TSN Radio 1290 starting at 6:30pm ct/7:30pm et. Forward Evander Kane, who was a healthy scratch Saturday night in Toronto, participated in the Jets morning skate today and will be back in the lineup tonight. "I was obviously disappointed but that was his decision and that was it," said Kane after the morning skate. Head coach Paul Maurice said it was a "coachs decision" to scratch the 22-year-old from the lineup. "Youll get no rationale from me. Youve seen me on TV before. Theres nothing rational out of my mouth," said Maurice after a 4-2 win against the Maple Leafs. Maurice also mentioned that Kane would have to "probably just come to the rink" to get back into the lineup. Last week, Kane was sued in British Columbia over an alleged assault from a incident in August 2013. Dustin Byfuglien will not play tonight and is done for the season with a torn muscle in his upper body. Winnipeg was recently eliminated from playoff contention, meaning the former Atlanta Thrashers franchise will miss the postseason for a seventh straight season. The Jets, however, did well in a spoiler role in their last game, recording a 4-2 home win over the Toronto Maple Leafs, a team currently fighting for its playoff lives in the Eastern Conference. Tobias Enstrom scored the game-winning goal late in the second period to help Winnipeg deal the Maple Leafs a costly setback. After Torontos Paul Ranger went off for holding Adam Pardy, the Jets took a 3-2 lead on the power play. Enstrom skated across the blue line and fired a shot past a screened James Reimer with 2:58 to go in the second. Bryan Little, Jacob Trouba, and Olli Jokinen also scored for the Jets, who have won two of their last three. Andrew Ladd, Michael Frolik and Blake Wheeler all supplied two helpers, while Ondrej Pavelec turned aside 23 shots in the win. "I thought it was a great effort, start to finish," said Ladd. The Jets are kickking off a two-game homestand tonight before capping their season Friday night in Calgary. Jacob Josefson Jersey. Winnipeg is 17-16-6 at MTS Centre. Minnesota won the first three encounters against the Jets this season before Winnipeg recorded a 6-4 home win in the last meeting on Dec. 27. That victory halted a four-game slide in the series for the Jets, who are 2-0-1 at home against the Wild since relocating from Atlanta prior to the 2011-12 season. The Wild had missed the postseason four straight times before returning to the tournament last spring, when they were knocked out in the first round by Chicago. With 92 points through 78 games, Minnesota is likely headed back to the playoffs in 2014. Minnesota holds the first of two wild card spots in the Western Conference and is five points ahead of idle Dallas. The Wild are six points in front of the Phoenix Coyotes, who also are idle on Monday. Like the Stars and Wild, Phoenix has four games left on its regular-season schedule. The Wild have won three of their last four games, going 3-0-1 during that stretch. The club picked up a 4-0 win in Saturdays home test against the Pittsburgh Penguins, as Ilya Bryzgalov stopped all 20 shots he faced for his third shutout of the season. It was Bryzgalovs second shutout since being traded from Edmonton to Minnesota last month. The veteran netminder is 5-0-3 with a sparkling 1.87 goals against average in nine appearances with the Wild since the trade. "They did a tremendous job," Bryzgalov said. "Im just trying to enjoy the hockey and help the team and help the guys like they helping me to get these points and help to win the games." Bryzgalov will get the call again on Monday and is 6-2-2 with a 2.88 GAA in 10 career games against the Jets. Erik Haula, Mikko Koivu and Stephane Veilleux tallied in a strong first period for the Wild on Saturday. Cody McCormick added the other tally and Charlie Coyle supplied two assists. The Wild, who are 16-17-7 as the road team, will complete their regular season with a three-game homestand at Xcel Energy Center. Minnesota will host Boston, St. Louis and Nashville during the stay in St. Paul.Cheap Soccer Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Hockey Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys China Wholesale Baseball Jerseys China Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Near Me Cheap Jerseys Online Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys Authentic Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic MLB Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Throwback Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
