    WINNIPEG, Manitoba -- Kevin Hayes was at the right place at the right time. Nike Air Max 2017 Running Shoes .Hayes scored a power-play goal with 1:09 left in the third period to lift the New York Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Thursday night.Jets forward Drew Stafford was in the penalty box for high-sticking when Ryan McDonaghs shot through traffic deflected off Winnipeg forward Adam Lowrys stick to Hayes, who capitalized for his 11th of the season.I think it was a greasy goal, a point shot off about three guys, Hayes said. just tipped it in. That was definitely puck luck, for sure.Winnipeg goalie Michael Hutchinson admitted he lost sight of the puck with the players in front blocking his view.I saw McDonagh go to shoot in the slot and as soon as he went to release it, a bunch of traffic came into my eyesight, Hutchinson said. As a goalie, you wait that fraction of a second where the puck should hit you or the boards. I didnt hear anything, then my peripheral vision caught the puck to my right. I tried to push over, but I just couldnt get there.Staffords infraction on Rangers defenseman Dan Girardi with 2:56 left in the third had fans at MTS Centre booing.Jets coach Paul Maurice was asked if Girardi did a sell job.I cant tell, Maurice said. It doesnt matter. Its a high stick, its up there. Whether you think youre right or not, it doesnt matter. You have to learn how to play with your stick on the ice and get your body in the right spots.Chris Kreider also scored for New York. Antti Raanta, playing for the first time since Nov. 27, stopped 17 shots. The Finnish goaltender praised his teammates penalty killing, especially when Winnipeg had two power plays in the third period.I think the first penalty in the third period, we didnt give them zone time at all, Raanta said. The second one was just a great job of blocking the shots and taking the passes away.Its a great thing to be a goalie when the guys do that kind of job in front of you. Everybodys putting their whole body on the line so its a great thing.Mark Scheifele had the tying goal for Winnipeg midway through the second period, and Hutchinson finished with 22 saves.The Rangers had 10 blocked shots and Winnipeg 15.They were blocking a few, McDonagh said of the Jets. Pretty fortuitous bounce (for Hayes goal), but we had the puck in the zone for a while and good things happen there.New York opened the scoring at 8:02 of the first on the power play when a trio of precision passes started with Mats Zuccarello and ended with Derek Stepan sending Kreider the puck at the side of an open net.The Rangers outshot the Jets 10-6 after the first, but could have been up by more goals if not for some tough stops by Hutchinson.Scheifele, who missed the last three games with a hamstring injury, used a rebound off Paul Postmas point shot to score his 14th of the season at 9:51 of the second.New York led 18-13 in shots after the second, which included both teams having shots ring off goal posts.Winnipeg had two power plays in the third period and New York also had a pair, including the last with 2:56 remaining in the third that Hayes used for his 20th point of the season.Game notes Kreiders goal gave him a point in four straight games, with three goals and two assists. ... The Rangers improved to 9-0-1 in games following a loss this season. ... Winnipeg came in 9 for 9 on the penalty-kill but the Rangers went 2 for 4 on their power play. ... The Jets fell to 8-4-2 in one-goal games.UP NEXTRangers: At Chicago on Friday night in the finale of a stretch of three straight road games.Jets: At Calgary on Saturday night. Cheap Air Max Sale . The Montreal Canadiens announced on Friday that the veteran forward will return to the teams line-up on Saturday night when the Habs visit the Nashville Predators. Cheap Air Max Online . LOUIS -- Lance Lynn was one of the more enthusiastic participants as the St. .500 on the season. The Jets are now 0-5-1 in the second game of back-to-backs. The game started the same way the Vancouver game started the night before, with the Jets taking the first two penalties of the game and killing off the first, but the Oilers getting on the board first, scoring on the second man-advantage. Dhoni from the block Some wicketkeepers are conmens conmen. They practise grifting for griftings sake. It is an urge that suddenly possesses them when they put those big gloves on. Take MS Dhoni for example. He walks before he is given out, he withdraws run-out appeals against dozy batsmen, but the wicketkeeper within doesnt allow him to give up on trickery. More than the gains, it is about devotion to an art form. It is not like claiming grounded catches or flicking the bail when nobody is watching and appealing for a hit-wicket; the big joy is doing it legally and in full view.This one is from the back alleys of street cricket. Its anytown, India, during the hot summer, in one of those IPL matches that merges into many others. There is nothing to remember this match by, except this, the fifth ball of the last over of the first innings. Chennai Super Kings Joginder Sharma bowls a yorker that squeezes under the bat of Laxmi Ratan Shukla, Kolkata Knight Riders last recognised batsman. For some reason, Ishant Sharma, the No. 10 wants to steal a bye and take strike last ball. Shukla, on whose watch the first four balls have yielded 11, tries to send Ishant back but it is too late.Dhoni sees that both batsmen are at the strikers end, so he lobs the ball over their heads to Joginder, at the non-strikers end. This in itself shows some presence of mind, but the really shrewd thinking is yet to come. As Dhoni walks towards the stumps, he sees Shukla step out of his crease to pat Ishant on his shoulder, perhaps just to reassure him that its okay, that his intention was noble but not its timing. Dhoni raises his left hand, asking Joginder to wait before breaking the wicket. Only once he sees Ishant cross Shukla does Dhoni gesture with his right hand, like a traffic policeman, telling Joginder to break the wicket. Knight Riders have lost Shukla. Dhoni has waited till the last moment to take the slightest advantage.Saint SangaKumar Sangakkara has fooled much of the world with his polished accent and Spirit of Cricket lecture. He is not fooling me. Not if he does this to poor Ahmed Shehzad. This is 2013, a Pakistan-Sri Lanka ODI that could be any other, and perhaps Sangakkara knows Shehzad is going to become a selfie-taking menace soon. Shehzad looks to take advantage of the big boundaries in Dubai, and plays a nice chip over cover. He turns blind for the second, trusting Misbah-ul-Haqs call.Sangakkara knows Shehzad doesnt know where the ball is because he hasnt bothered looking, so well before the throw arrives, he mock-collects the ball as a prelude to pretending to whip the bails off. Shehzad panics and dives awkwardly. Sangakkara then collects the lobbed throw from the deep with the satisfied air of one who has robbed a man at gunpoint, except as Shehzad, looking on sheepishly, now understands, it was done with a stick not a gun. He needs treatment after hurting himself in the dive. Even Misbah smiles. Danny Morrison, on air then, sums it up: Oh Sangers, you old dog.Bouchers slick flickMark Boucher rarely got to stand up to the stumps, so when he did, as in this case, he might have thought, I dont care if it is the genial-looking Marvan Atapattu. All I care is about is entering the wicketkeepers trickery Hall Of Fame.Sri Lanka are chasing 264 in Adelaide. They need 147 off 143 with seven wickets in hand. Atapattuu and Tillakaratne Dilshan have added 49. Nike Air Max 2017. Johan Botha turns an offbreak past Atapattus inside edge. The ball lobs up towards the leg side. Boucher starts appealing for lbw even as the ball is in the air and he is moving towards it. It will probably land about a foot off the pitch. The appeal comes first. Then Boucher, his arms still up in appeal, catches the ball.Now as a batsman made nervous by an appeal - and it is a pretty good shout - you often look for a leg-bye, especially because if the wicketkeeper had collected the ball, he would already have done something with it. But Boucher keeps appealing, hands in the air. So Atapattu takes one step out to look for that leg-bye. He sees Dilshan looking at the umpire, so panics and looks to return. Exactly one second passes between that first step out and him looking to return. It is enough. Without even looking at the stumps or the batsman, Boucher flicks the ball down onto the base of leg stump. Botha is still appealing for lbw when Boucher, pissing himself, goes and tells him he has run Atapattu out.Sri Lanka go on to lose by nine runs. Dilshan was clean-shaven back then and, clearly traumatised, is still recovering by growing weird beards.The reverse Sanga If Sangakkara did what he did to Shehzad just for kicks, Dhoni often does the opposite to get run-outs. Here Mitchell Marsh should really have known better because Dhoni was doing this sort of thing to South African batsmen as far back as 2006-07. Nearly a decade on, chasing 296, Australia are cruising at 204 for 4 after 35 overs when Glenn Maxwell drives Barinder Sran past mid-off. Umesh Yadav gives spirited chase and fires in a throw at the keepers end. Marsh, running back for the third - which is, quite frankly, on - has his back to the action. He has no idea the throw is headed to his end because Dhoni looks like he might be conjuring his latest weird analogy to rubbish the DRS rather than getting ready to collect a throw. Suddenly, though, he springs into action, collects the ball without any preparation, and whips the bails off to catch Marsh short. Marsh can be blamed for not knowing that Dhoni is capable of this, but to give him the benefit of the doubt, no other wicketkeeper pulls the wool over batsmens eyes like Dhoni. At the least give him a walk-on part in The Sting if it is ever remade.The old dogThis is actually one of the more famous cases of absent-minded running by the batsman than pure trickery by the wicketkeeper. Virender Sehwag slashes to third man and strolls through for an easy single. Except that the stroll becomes a little too leisurely. He practises the shot as he goes, turns around and looks to take guard at the non-strikers end.Suddenly, to his horror, he hears his partner, Sourav Ganguly, shout Viru, Viru! but before he understands what is happening, he is out. To be fair, Sehwag has done what many do, but he has forgotten who is behind the stumps. The old dog, Sangers, has collected the lob where first slip would be and is about to send the ball to cover, when he notices that Sehwag is ambling. He takes off a glove and, as inconspicuously as possible, sends in a throw, which misses Sehwag by inches and hits the stumps to run him out.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
