Babcock expressed sadness over St

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork. Percy Miller Jersey .com) - Claude Giroux scored the winning goal with 1:03 to play in overtime to give the Philadelphia Flyers a 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Flyers were skating on their second power play of overtime thanks to a too many men on the ice minor on the Pens. With time winding down in the man advantage, Jakub Voracek threw a shot on net from the slot that Thomas Greiss stopped, but he couldnt find the rebound. Eventually it wound up in the crease, where Giroux snapped it home for his 16th of the season and the win. Chris VandeVelde and Luke Schenn also scored for the Flyers, who have won two of their last three. Ray Emery stopped 33 shots in the win. Pitt brings out that in all of us, said Philadelphia head coach Craig Berube. You know there was a lot of emotion in the game, a lot of physical play. Guys were battling for each other, and we played a real good hockey game. Chris Kunitz and Beau Bennett scored for the Penguins, who have lost their past three games. Greiss allowed all three goals on 40 shots in the loss. Well we want some momentum heading into the All-Star Break, said Pittsburgh head coach Mike Johnston. So weve got to regroup, recover and get ready for a tough team in Chicago tomorrow. The Flyers drew first blood, as Schenn picked off a bad clear in the high slot and wristed it in for his second goal of the season at 13:11 of the first. Just over two minutes later, Philadelphias Zac Rinaldo left his feet in a boarding of Kris Letang and was thrown out of the game. Letang was eventually helped into the locker room and never returned to the game. The Pens were unable to take advantage of the ensuing five-minute power play, but did get on the board while short-handed in the second period. A 2-on-1 was finished off by Kunitz on a wrister from the left wing for his 14th goal of the season. Pittsburgh took a 2-1 lead at 2:01 of the third with another short-handed goal, as another 2-on-1 break saw Evgeni Malkin get the puck over to the left side where Bennett wristed it in. The Flyers, though, tied the game two minutes later on the power play, as VandeVelde redirected a Michael Del Zotto shot for his sixth goal of the season.

Marco Belinelli Jersey . -- All-Pro tight end Jimmy Graham and the New Orleans Saints met Tuesday for arbitration on his contract.TORONTO -- When Steven Stamkos crashed into the post in Boston on Monday afternoon, the shock waves could be felt all the way to Sochi, Russia. The Tampa Bay Lightning star is out indefinitely with a broken right tibia, an injury that could be a significant blow to Team Canada in its efforts to defend gold at the Olympics. Stamkos was tied with Alex Steen as the NHLs leading goal scorer, and with Sidney Crosby for the points lead at the time of his injury and figured to be a lock to make the team. "Certainly from a Canada perspective, I dont know of a time frame, but certainly probably going to be questionable if he can play in the Olympics," said Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland, whos part of Canadas management team. "Big loss for Tampa, big loss for our league." Stamkos lost his balance and crashed into the net during the second period of the Lightnings 3-0 loss to the Boston Bruins. He writhed in pain on the ice and appeared to tell a trainer, "Its broken." The broken tibia will require surgery to repair. The Lightning did not release a time frame, likely in part because the complexity of the fracture could affect things. Surgery is set for Tuesday morning. "The biggest concern for me, and the rest of the Lightning, is that decisions are made in Stevens best long-term interest, and we feel this is the appropriate course of action," Lightning GM Steve Yzerman said in a statement. Yzerman is also Team Canadas GM, making this potentially a double loss. Stamkos had 14 goals and 23 points in the first 17 games of the season, helping Tampa Bay climb to first place in the Atlantic Division. Stamkos was just 20 years old when Canada won gold in Vancouver in 2010, and he did not make the cut for that team. In three world championships, Stamkos has 16 goals and 10 assists. Hockey Canada president and CEO Bob Nicholson said the major priority right now is Stamkoss health, not the impact on the Olympics. "This isnt about the Olympic team," Nicholson said on the red carpet before Monday nights Hockey Hall of Fame induction ceremony. "This is about Steve Stamkos making sure he takes care of himself." Of course it would hurt Team Canada if Stamkos is unable to play. Nicholson said theres an injury clause in the Olympic agreement that could allow Canada to name Stamkos and replace him before the Games, but he said its "too early" to talk about that possibility. Brian Roberts Hornets Jersey. "Well see what happens in the next 48 hours and then start to discuss that," he said. "We were looking at naming the team by the first of January, but there is the injury clause and so well have to explore all of the those options." Team Canada had an injury question going into the 2010 Olympics when Anaheim Ducks centre Ryan Getzlaf was questionable with an ankle injury. Jeff Carter was flown into Vancouver just in case, but Getzlaf was able to play. That could happen again for Sochi, but with more complex travel. "Theres lots of complications around it, but its just devastating that it happened to him today," Nicholson said. "Weve got a lot of time to figure out where were going to go, and we just hope things go well with him." Babcock, Team Canadas head coach, was on the opposite bench with the Red Wings on Saturday night when Stamkos roofed a shot on Jimmy Howard. In Toronto for three former players being inducted into the Hall of Fame -- Chris Chelios, Brendan Shanahan and Scott Niedermayer -- Babcock expressed sadness over Stamkos injury. "Tough for him," he said. "Who knows. Well see what happens." While Holland conceded Monday evening that he hadnt seen the play Stamkos was injured on. But former NHL great and Canadian Olympian Wayne Gretzky did. "Its horrible,"said Gretzky, a former GM for Team Canada . "(You) dont want to see anybody get an injury like he sustained today. Its unfortunate, and thats the risk of being of being a National Hockey League player or a professional athlete. It really is difficult. Hopefully he mends from this and comes back even stronger. Hes a wonderful young man, and Im sure hell come back a better player." If he cannot come back in time to help Team Canada in Sochi, it could open the door for someone like Jamie Benn of the Dallas Stars or perhaps Patrick Marleau of the San Jose Sharks. Neither of those players were invited to Olympic orientation camp in Calgary, but preparing for an Olympic tournament without Stamkos is not something Canada wanted. "Youre never replacing Steve Stamkos," Nicholson said. "We have a lot of great players. Steve Yzerman has a very difficult job putting this team together, but you dont replace Steve Stamkos and well just have to find another way to make sure the lineups strong."
