GLENDALE, Ariz. Boston Celtics Store . - Arizonas struggling penalty kill allowed Toronto to nearly rally from a three-goal deficit.One big kill and the goal that came right after gave the Coyotes the cushion they needed for their second winning streak of the season.Mike Smith stopped 28 shots and Sam Gagner scored 30 seconds after Arizona killed off a long two-man advantage, lifting the Coyotes to a 3-2 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs Tuesday night.A little dangerous situation when its 5-on-3 like that, Coyotes centre Antoine Vermette said. But I think we managed the situation well and it gave us confidence.Arizona scored six goals in its last game and kept its offensive surge rolling, going up 3-0 by early second period against Toronto goalie James Reimer. Gagne scored in his second straight game in the first and Martin Erat added a goal later in the period. Vermette scored in the second period, giving him four points in two games.Though the goal by Gagne wasnt the game-winner, it was a huge momentum moment for the Coyotes, right after they killed off a two-man advantage by Toronto that lasted 1:06.You gain momentum if you kill a 5-on-3 like that off, Smith said. We did a heck of a job to keep them off the board there, for the most part.The Coyotes needed it.Though the penalty kill came up big in the first period, the Maple Leafs rallied against it to pull within 3-2.And they did it against Arizonas penalty kill unit, which was 27th in the NHL, entering the game at 74.3 per cent.Dion Paneuf scored with a man advantage in the second period and Cody Franson added another late in the third to give the Maple Leafs a chance.They couldnt finish it off. They were unable to get anything else against Smith, whos allowed seven goals in three starts after giving up six goals three times his first six gamesPhil Kessel had a pair of assists for the Maple Leafs and Reimer stopped 30 shots after facing 47 against Chicago his last start.Turtle start. It was slower than slow, Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. No explanation for that other than it seemed we were in neutral and they were in third gear. We were chasing and we finally got our legs under us as the hockey game went on.Arizona broke out of its season-long offensive funk on Sunday, equally its goal total of the five previous games combined in a 6-5 road win over Washington that ended a three-game losing streak.The Coyotes picked up right where they left off.Gagner appeared to get a boost playing on a line with Lauri Korpikoski and Mikkel Boedker against Washington, scoring his first goal with the Coyotes.Korpikoski set him up again in the first period against Toronto, stealing a pass from Jake Gardiner behind the goal and feeding it out front to Gagner, who beat Reimer with a one-timer.Erat made it 2-0 late in the period, circling from behind the net for a backhanded shot that caromed off Toronto defenceman Stephane Robidas past Reimer.Vermette scored early in the second period when he missed a shot wide, came up with the puck again and sneaked in a wraparound before Reimer could get to the post.Arizona was good in its own end at the start, holding Toronto to three shots on goal in the first period, none in the final 12 1-2 minutes.We didnt get off to the start that we wanted to, Toronto left wing James van Riemsdyk said. They were sharper, played their game plan a little more effectively and we were too loose with the puck.When the Maple Leafs finally turned up the pressure Smith made some big saves, including one on his back to stop Tyler Bozak.Toronto broke through on a power play early in the second period when Phaneuf beat Mike Smith from above the left circle on a power play.Franson pulled the Maple Leafs within one with 6:07 left, beating Smith with a one-timer after a nifty pass by van Riemsdyk.The Coyotes held on, winning two straight games for just the second time this season.It was big for us to win a game at home and hopefully get going in the right direction, Coyotes captain Shane Doan said.Notes: With his goal against Washington on Sunday, Arizonas Tobias Rieder became the first German-born player to score in his NHL debut since Marco Sturm did it for San Jose on Oct. 4, 1997. ... Toronto (3-1) lost for the first time on Tuesday this season. ... The Coyotes and Maple Leafs will meet again in Toronto on Jan. 29. Celtics Jerseys 2019 . -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are disappointed, though not discouraged. Stitched Celtics Jerseys . In five games last month, Billings led all scorers with 11 goals, 27 assists and 38 points as the Rock posted a 2-3 record. https://www.cheapceltics.com/ . Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, the Houston Texans No. 1 pick in the draft, was on the field Tuesday for the first time with former NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.Sky Sports Neil Reynolds draws up his own NFL Mock Draft as he predicts which rising stars will be snapped up in the first round. NFL coaches have been tracking the hottest talents in recent months, but which teams will land their preferred picks?Neil is backing the two most sought-after quarterbacks to be the first two picks of the draft with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Tennessee Titans taking Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, respectively. A profile on Florida State Quarterback, Jameis Winston 1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - QB Jameis WinstonThere are some off-the-field concerns with the Florida State passer but the Bucs are desperate and need to find a franchise quarterback. Winston has all the tools to be a quality NFL player.2. Tennessee Titans - QB Marcus MariotaThe Titans would be willing to shop this pick and could very well do so. If they stay put, they have to find a face of a faceless franchise – and that is Mariota, who is a coach’s dream. A profile of former University of Southern California defensive end, Leonard Williams. 3. Jacksonville Jaguars - DE Leonard WilliamsThe Jags failed to score more than 25 points in any game in 2014 but can address offense in round two. Williams is the best defensive player available in this Draft and a wonderful chess piece.4. Oakland Raiders - WR Amari Cooper A profile on former University of Alabama wide receiver, Amari Cooper The Raiders selected their franchise quarterback last year in Derek Carr and now is the time to surround him with talent, starting with the most polished receiver in this Draft.5. Washington Redskins - OLB Dante Fowler Jr.The Redskins need help in the secondary and in upgrading their putrid pass rush. Fowler is a dynamic edge rusher in a draft filled with difference makers off the edge.6. New York Jets - OLB Randy GregoryThe Jets could go with another WR here in Kevin White but I think they need pass rush on the outside and overlook Gregory’s failed drug test at the recent NFL Combine.7. Chicago Bears - WR Kevin White A profile of former West Virginia wide receiver, Kevin White. The Bears could do with some help on defense but also need to find another WR to replace the departed Brandon Marshall. White offers some intriguing upside despite being inexperienced.8. Atlanta Falcons - OLB Shane RayThe Falcons are another team who failed to pressure quarterbacks enough last season. Ray is a high-energy player who is competitive, nasty and hates to lose!9. New York Giants - OT/OG Brandon ScherffThe Giants need help on the offensive line and Scherff, who could be a good tackle or a very good guard, is just what the doctor ordered. Tom Coughlin will love this tough and reliable blocker. A profile of former University of Louisville Cardinals wide receiver, DeVante Parker. 10. St. Louis Rams - WR Devante ParkerThe Rams might be keeping an eye on the bidding war to trade up and grab Marcus Mariota. If they stay put, they can upgrade a receiving corps devoid of a true number one target.11 .Minnesota Vikings - CB Trae WaynesThe Vikings need to find a premier wide receiver and could be in the market for a RB if they deal Adrian Peterson. But the stronger need is at corner and Waynes is the best available.12. Cleveland Browns - WR Breshad PerrimanThe Browns simply have to find a wide receiver who can be relied upon following the suspension of Josh Gordon. Perriman is big and strong but also offers blazing speed to stretch the field. Cleveland Browns general manager Ray Farmer says you can never predict how the selection will play out 13. Celtics Jerseys China. New Orleans Saints - OLB Vic BeasleyThe Saints need to upgrade a defense that ranked 31st in the NFL a year ago. Beasley is purely a pass rusher at this stage of his career but has all-round potential if he can get stronger.14. Miami Dolphins - OT/OG La’El CollinsI think the Dolphins look long and hard at RB Todd Gurley here, but eventually they help out QB Ryan Tannehill even further by giving him a versatile and granite-tough lineman in Collins.15. San Francisco 49ers - DT Arik ArmsteadThis would be a pick based on potential but could be worth the risk as there are not too many 6-foot-7, 300-pound defenders in the NFL. Armstead is raw but Jim Tomsula can coach him up.16. Houston Texans - NT Danny SheltonThe Texans need another WR and could very well grab one here. But I don’t think they see Vince Wilfork as a long-term option on the nose and Shelton is a space-eater who ties up blockers. A profile of former University of Georgia running back, Todd Gurley. 17. San Diego Chargers - RB Todd GurleyThere are lots of needs in San Diego and they could go D-line here but I think Gurley has the room to grow into a special NFL talent and is good value here in the middle of round one.18. Kansas City Chiefs - C Cameron ErvingThe Chiefs need another WR to play alongside Jeremy Maclin but they also need to replace Rodney Hudson at center on an embattled offensive line. The impressive Erving can play center and tackle.19. Cleveland Browns - DT Malcom BrownThe Browns are back on the clock courtesy of last year’s trade with Buffalo. The Browns need to find some defensive muscle and Brown is a rock who could be especially strong against the run.20. Philadelphia Eagles - WR Phillip DorsettMany expect the Eagles to grab safety Landon Collins in this spot, but I think the shifty and electrifying Dorsett would be a tremendous fit in Chip Kelly’s high-octane attack.21. Cincinnati Bengals - OLB Bud DupreeThe Bengals could go offensive line but they have to find a way to re-ignite one of the most stagnant pass rushes in the NFL. Dupree is an athletic phenomenon who can play all over the defense. Total Access looks at Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota, two QBs everyone is expecting to go head-to-head as the No 1 NFL draft pick. 22. Pittsburgh Steelers - CB Marcus PetersThe Steelers needed help in the secondary even before Ike Taylor retired. They also need a pass rusher but I think they opt for a physical and talented cover corner in Peters.23. Detroit Lions - OT Andrus PeatThe Lions will think long and hard about finding a replacement for Ndamukong Suh at defensive tackle but they also need to do better at protecting Matthew Stafford. Peat will help on that front.24. Arizona Cardinals - CB Kevin JohnsonArizona may choose to upgrade a poor running game with Melvin Gordon here, but I think they need to add a corner in their defense after allowing Antonio Cromartie to head back to New York.25. Carolina Panthers - OT Cedric OgbuehiThe Panthers must find a long-term answer at tackle and neither comes in the form of Michael Oher or Jonathan Martin. Ogbuehi is very talented and coachable and offers intriguing upside.26. Baltimore Ravens - CB Byron JonesThe Ravens are another team that may consider Melvin Gordon here but their need in the secondary is much more pressing. The super-athletic Jones should be a model professional.27. Dallas Cowboys - RB Melvin GordonUnless they swing a trade for Adrian Peterson, I expect the Cowboys to go after a runner early in this Draft. Gordon has home-run, headline-making skills and can score from anywhere on the field. A profile of former University of Oregon Quarterback, Marcus Mariota 28. Denver Broncos - OT D.J. HumphriesWhile it will help Peyton Manning in 2015, this would not be a short term move because the Broncos need a long-term answer at RT. Humphries looks the part and plays with a mean streak.29. Indianapolis Colts - OT Ereck FlowersThis is all about protecting the franchise in QB Andrew Luck, who takes way too many hits. Flowers is a mauler and a brawler who needs refining but he could start from day one as a guard.30. Green Bay Packers - CB Jalen CollinsThe Packers could go inside linebacker here or simply take the best player on their board. But they do need help in the secondary and Collins offers a nice combination of size, speed and aggression.31. New Orleans Saints - WR Nelson AgholorWith Jimmy Graham traded away, the Saints need passing game help and it could come in the form of the fast-rising Agholor. He can be used all over the formation and also return kicks.32. New England Patriots - DT Eddie GoldmanThe Patriots would have loved Agholor and will look long and hard at remaining players in the secondary. But they also need to replace Vince Wilfork and Goldman can eat up space vs. the run.Watch the first round of the NFL Draft live on Sky Sports 1 & 3 from midnight on Thursday April 30.Not a Sky Sports subcriber?
