    OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators didn't find losing to the Nashville Predators all that hard to take Thursday night.After all, they'd rallied from a three-goal deficit in the third period to at least salvage a point. And besides, their 6-5 overtime lo s gave them something else to worry about, like trying to explain the wild finish to the contest."That's a tough game to sum up in 30 seconds. A lot happened," said Senators defenceman Chris Phillips, who forced overtime by scoring a short-handed goal with 1.6 seconds remaining in regulation time and netminder Pascal Leclaire on the bench in favour of an extra attacker.A little more than 58 seconds earlier, Ryan Suter thought he'd won it for Nashville when he scored during a 5-on-3 power play, Mike Webster Jersey so Phillips' goal brought the crowd of 18,970 at Scotiabank Place to their feet having watched the Senators come back to tie for the third time in the contest.They were finally silenced when Shea Weber ended it with his second goal of the game as Nashville enjoyed another opportunity with the man advantage in overtime."Obviously not the start we wanted, Justin Gilbert Jersey but we battled back and lots happened in between there, a lot of goals scored," Phillips said.Weber, who also had an a sist on the night, put a shot between the pads of Leclaire with Matt Carkner serving an interference penalty to end the Predators' six-game winle s slide."Definitely not a defensive battle. It was a lot of offence, but we got two points and we're happy," said Weber, who also had an a sist.Fellow blue-liner Suter also had two goals and an a sist and J.P. Dumont scored once and set up four other goals for the Predators (3-5-1), who took a three-goal lead in the first period and appeared Jack Lambert Jersey to be cruising until the final frame.However, they allowed the Senators to tie the game at 3-3, then allowed leads at 4-3 and 5-4 to slip.

    Mikhail Grabovski, Matt D'Agostini Arthur Moats Jersey and Eric Manlow had a goal and an a sist each in a 6-2 win over the Bears Wednesday, giving Hamilton a 3-1 stranglehold in the Calder Cup final.The Bulldogs, who finished third in the AHL's North Division with a 43-28-3-6 record, have yet to trail in any of their four series and can secure the franchise's first AHL title with another victory Thursday at Copps Coliseum in Hamilton (7:30 p.m. ET)."We were about tonight's game and that was it," said Jack Butler Jersey Manlow, suggesting the Bulldogs clearly weren't looking beyond Game 4.Michael Lambert also scored for Hamilton (15-6), while Ajay Baines added a short-handed empty-netter in the final minute. Veteran Duncan Milroy scored another short-handed marker with 34 seconds remaining and also chipped in two a sists.Rookie sensation Carey Price stopped 33 of 35 shots for his team record 14th win in a single post-season.The 19-year-old Price, who played the majority of the season in junior with the Tri-City Americans, wasn't as busy as the first three games when he faced a total of 126 shots. Despite allowing a few uncharacteristic rebounds early against the Bears, Price was Mel Blount Jersey a sertive in his crease, aided by a rugged Hamilton defence that minimized any activity in front of the six-foot-three, 212-pounder from Williams Lake, B.C.At various points in the game, the Hamilton crowd showed their support, chanting "Car-ey, Car-ey.""It's been a lot of fun," Price said of his contributions to Hamilton's playoff run. "The guys have really accepted me as one of their own. It was like stepping Merril Hoge Jersey on a club team. I've known a lot of these guys for quite a while."It's been a great experience so far."Even with his limited profe sional experience, Price has had a positive effect on the Bulldogs.

    ATLANTA - The Atlanta Thrashers' owners and Winnipeg's True North Sports and Entertainment on Thursday were still working through complex legal details on the sale and relocation of the team.One of the Thrashers' Donald Penn Jersey lead owners, Michael Gearon Jr., told The A sociated Pre s Thursday "nothing has been done yet."True North would relocate the team to Winnipeg if a deal is completed. It reportedly has agreed to pay US$110 million for the team and another $60 million to the NHL as a relocation Michael Crabtree Jersey fee.Gearon said Thursday no new po sible buyer has emerged with a bid for the Thrashers.NHL Commi sioner Gary Bettman has said time is a factor if the team is to make the move for the 2011-12 season.Even if an agreement has been finalized, it likely would not be announced on Friday, when Boston and Tampa Bay play Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals Jerry Rice Jersey .Atlanta mayor Kasim Reed talked on Tuesday as if losing the team is inevitable."It is going to hurt the city but we will withstand it just fine and we will get through it," Reed said.Winnipeg mayor Sam Katz told the National Post on Tuesday he expected the sale to be final this week.The prolonged negotiations have not changed the expectation that the sale and relocation of the team to Winnipeg is inevitable.Gearon and Bruce Levenson are the lead owners in a Shilique Calhoun Jersey group which also owns the NBA's Atlanta Hawks and operating rights to Philips Arena, which is home to both teams.The ownership group claims the hockey club has lost more than $150 million since 2005.The Thrashers' average attendance this season was 13,46928th out of 30 teams.

    Montreal (27-12-6) at New Jersey (28-15-3), 7:00 p.m. ESTNEWARK, New Jersey (Ticker) -- The New Jersey Devils have thechance to be in a position that seemed unattainable when MartinBrodeur went down with an injury Brenton Bersin Jersey back in November - first placeat the All-Star break.If the Devils extend their winning streak to five games bydefeating the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday, they will finishthe first half of the season atop the Atlantic Division.New Jersey is one point behind the idle New York Rangers, butwill have to solve All-Star netminder Carey Price if it plans onleaping over its rival in the standings.A four-time Vezina Trophy winner, Brodeur has been out sincesuffering a torn distal biceps tendon in his elbow Thomas Davis Jersey during a 6-1win over the Atlanta Thrashers on November 1. The rousing playof career backup Scott Clemmensen has kept New Jersey afloat.The 31-year-old Clemmensen, who has surrendered one goal in eachof his last two starts, is 18-9-1 with a 2.30 goals-againstaverage in 29 games.All-Star Zach Parise looks to punctuate a stellar first halfthat has seen him accumulate 27 goals and 26 a sists in 46games. The 24-year-old also helped the Devils notch a 5- Ryan Kalil Jersey 1-0record on their recent season-long, six-game road trip.Montreal, which has won six of eight, is coming off a 4-2setback against the Thrashers on Tuesday. Price made his returnto the ice after an eight-game layoff caused by a sprained rightankle, but not in the way the Canadiens had hoped.After backup Jaroslav Halak coughed up three goals, Priceentered the game early in the second period but was not able toextend Montreal Vernon Butler Jersey 's two-game winning run.For the Canadiens, who have dropped two of three on the road,this marks the third contest of a five-game trek.

    BROSSARD, Que. - Marc Bergevin is moving back Harrison Smith Jersey to his hometown after nearly three decades away and he understands the ma sive task that lies ahead.The 46-year-old who grew up watching the Montreal Canadiens parade the Stanley Cup down Ste-Catherine Street almost annually is now responsible for reshaping the struggling team in a city that will watch and pick apart his every move.The new Canadiens general manager brings to the job 20 years of experience as a steady, stay-at-home defenceman for eight NHL clubs and more than seven years of scouting and management with the Chicago Blackhawks.But his first job as an NHL GM comes with many challenges as he takes over a club that finished last in the NHL Eastern Conference this season.''I took this job first of all because I know I'm ready,'' Bergevin said after he was introduced as executive vice-president and GM by team owner/president Geoff Xavier Rhodes Jersey Molson on Wednesday.''If I wasn't ready for this challenge I wouldn't be here today.''He said that despite the team's dismal finish in 2011-12, it will not need a complete rebuild but will require some changes to make it a winner.The Canadiens were hit hard Will Sutton Jersey by injuries, but they have a solid top line of David Desharnais, Erik Cole and Max Pacioretty and the makings of a second line with Tomas Plekanec and Brian Gionta, as well as a young but decent defence and Jaleel Johnson Jersey a talented goalie in Carey Price."I believe the pieces are really good," Bergevin said. "Obviously finishing 15th in the conference, it's a lot of work that needs to be done but you have a good base."While he offered only a few specific details of what will change, it was clear the easygoing Bergevin is a near opposite of Pierre Gauthier, the guarded, uncommunicative GM he has replaced.

    There were some pretty big surprises and some deep dives on Day 1. We're here to sort out what went down in Buffalo on one of the NHL's biggest nights BUFFALO - So, who saw the draft going down Cam Robinson Jersey the way it did? Be honest.Yes, the top two picks were chalk. Toronto got their dominant center of the future in Auston Matthews, while Winnipeg added a savage scoring weapon in Patrik Laine. But who else won the night? And on the downer side, who lost in Buffalo? Here's a breakdown.WinnerFinland: Even though Je se Puljujarvi was A J Cann Jersey leap-frogged by Pierre-Luc Dubois, Finland landed three of the top five picks, with Olli Juolevi rounding out Blake Bortles Jersey the crew when Vancouver got him at No. 5. As a surprise bonus, raw center Henrik Borgstrom joined his countrymen in the first round. The University of Denver commit went 23rd overall to Florida.LoserSweden: This was one of Sweden's worst first rounds in recent memory, with Alex Nylander as the lone flag-bearer. Sabres fans are stoked to have the gifted winger, as they should be. But no other kids from the proud hockey nation made the top-30. Rasmus Asplund and Brad Nortman Jersey Carl Grundstrom were candidates, as was goalie Filip Gustav son.

    As a lifelong hockey fan, I've taken my share of blows from the follies of nationwide NHL coverage Kendall Langford Jersey in the U.S. The final straw came with NBC forbidding the Pittsburgh Penguins from showing NBC-exclusive broadcasts on their screen outside the arena, which became very popular in last year's playoff run. Not only was this practice permitted by the network last season, it was often ballyhooed on air as an example of the infectious and fun atmosphere of a hockey game, even for people who were just watching it together. Apparently, in the time since, corporate bean-counters realized that a few thousand extra TV sets could be tuned into their broadcast and this could po sibly boost their numbers, or whatever they are calculating in this new media age. While this Jack Mewhort Jersey situation is quite similar to a recent controversy where the NFL attempted to block churches from showing games, the NFL backed down when the media jumped on the story. In the US, hockey fans have no such pull. I'm very disappointed that the NHL Phillip Dorsett Jersey hasn't attempted to remedy this for the fans of Pittsburgh and other cities that may wish to follow suit. The league appears content to allow NBC to trample on a great community activity that actually drew interest in the game among non-fans. Sure, people can go to bars or restaurants to watch the game in a smaller scale group atmosphere, but the beauty of the group gatherings was the game-like atmosphere it created. Not only did this generate new fans for NBC's televised games, but it enticed many to actually spend money Donte Moncrief Jersey on a hockey ticket when they otherwise would not. And people wonder why our sport struggles in so many U.S. markets...Victoria Summerfield, Indiana, Pa.
