SAN JOSE, Calif. Cheap Packers Jerseys . - The Calgary Flames ability to bounce back from tough losses is the biggest reason for their early-season turnaround.Karri Ramo made 32 saves for his third career shutout and Jiri Hudler scored both goals to lead the Flames over the San Jose Sharks 2-0 Wednesday night.Hudler broke a scoreless tie with a goal in the second period and sealed the game with an empty-netter on the power play late in the third. Calgary rebounded a night after losing 3-2 in Anaheim to win for the ninth time in 10 games following a loss this season.I think everybody here in the room knows that if we just keep playing our game were going to win many games, Ramo said. In the long run, we dont have to panic. Just play our game and focus on our own game.Antti Niemi made 17 saves for the struggling Sharks, who have lost four straight. San Jose hasnt led at any point during the skid, marking the first time since February 2013 that the Sharks have gone four straight games without a lead.I think the chances are there, forward Patrick Marleau said. Hopefully its like a big buildup and its going to break soon and well start getting on a winning streak.After playing a record 16 of their first 21 games on the road, the Sharks were hoping to find their stride on a six-game homestand. But they have lost the first three games in that stretch and have just two wins in eight games at the Shark Tank this season.Every game is critical, coach Todd McLellan said. Were in the thick of it right now. The rest of this homestand is critical but so are the next two road games and the home games after that. Were an everyday team right now just scrambling to get back to the point where we can get our heads above water.Ramo did his best to extend the Sharks misery, beating them for the third straight time. He has allowed only two goals on 94 shots in that span. He was tested a bit in the third, but Marleau was stopped by defenceman Dennis Wideman from the side of the net and Ramo stopped Joe Thornton on a rebound chance.The Sharks also had chances to get on the board early in the second, but Marleau hit the crossbar during a power play.Ramo posted Calgarys first regular-season shutout in San Jose since Fred Brathwaite beat the Sharks 1-0 on Jan. 3, 2001. Miikka Kiprusoff also shut out San Jose in the 2004 Western Conference finals.Hes definitely the reason we won that game, Flames defenceman TJ Brodie said of Ramo. He made some big saves when we needed him to. He was solid all night.The Flames got on the board late in the second period during 4-on-4 action, taking advantage of a tired group of Sharks at the end of a long shift. Hudler started the play by taking the puck into the offensive zone and then left it for Brodie. He sent it back to the slot for Hudler, who completed the pretty give-and-go with a wrist shot past Niemi to make it 1-0.Ramo preserved the lead late in the period with a strong glove save against Tommy Wingels.The Flames had a couple of prime scoring chances early, but Niemi robbed Johnny Gaudreau at the side of the net after a wild scramble in the opening minute and then stopped Paul Byron after a turnover by James Sheppard later in a scoreless first period.Some of the biggest excitement was generated by a group of Edmonton Oilers fans sitting at ice level who had junior hockey star Connor McDavids name taped on the backs of their jerseys. They alternated cheers for the Sharks with derogatory chants about the rival Flames.NOTES: Flames F Mikael Backlund had an abdominal procedure and is listed as week-to-week. ... Calgary placed F Devin Setoguchi on waivers. ... Former San Jose State G Ryan Lowe was signed as a backup to Niemi after Troy Groesnick got hurt in practice Tuesday. Green Bay Packers Gear . -- Washingtons Bradley Beal seemed to make every shot he took in setting a career high with 37 points. Green Bay Packers Shirts . Louis Cardinals placed outfielder Allen Craig on the 15-day disabled list with a right knee contusion on Sunday. https://www.packersjerseysale.com/ .com) - Rajon Rondo turned in a game-high 21 points to go with eight rebounds and seven assists as Dallas claimed a 102-98 win over the Lakers on Friday. Those 36-year-old legs of Manu Ginobilis have been feeling pretty spry this season. That spring in his step that had been missing for so much of last season was back, helping the Argentine magician become a game-changer again for the San Antonio Spurs. So when the lane opened up in the third quarter Tuesday night against the Houston Rockets, Ginobili decided to go for it. He rose up, cradled the ball in his left hand and threw down a solid, one-handed dunk. And with that, Ginobili joined the growing list of injured Spurs. The team said Wednesday that Ginobili strained his left hamstring on the dunk and will miss the next three to four weeks. Ginobili joins Danny Green (broken finger), Kawhi Leonard (broken left hand) and Tiago Splitter (sprained right shoulder) on the teams injured list, a run of bad luck that has torn apart the teams depth, particularly on the wing. "You play the guys on the bench," San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. "We cant play the guys on the other team. I know that." The team is hopeful Splitter, who hasnt played since Jan. 4, will return in time for the teams annual rodeo road trip, a 10-game stint that begins Monday in New Orleans. That would help out Tim Duncan and the big men up front, but the problems on the perimeter remain. After struggling for much of last season, Ginobili signed a two-year contract to remain in San Antonio. He has rebounded this season to resume his role as the Spurs playmaker off the bench, averaging 12.1 points, 4.5 assists and shooting 52 per cent on his 2-point shots. During a monthlong stretch from the middle of December to the middle of January, Ginobili scored at least 20 points five times in a 16-game span to help the Spurs once again establish themselves among the NBAs elite teams. Hes been pretty healthy as well, missing two games earlier in January because of a sore left hamstring before injuring it more severely on Tuesday night. Packers Jerseys 2020. Ginobili, who has long been the emotional centre of this close-knit team, was dejected as he limped off the court. His injury puts even more responsibility on the shoulders of veteran Marco Belinelli, who has been a reliable shooter in a supporting role after coming over in free agency from the Chicago Bulls. Belinelli is averaging 10.9 points and shooting 46.7 per cent from 3-point range for the Spurs. With the injuries to Leonard and Green, Belinelli had become a starter on the wing and seen his playing time steadily increase. Belinelli played 38 minutes in the loss to Houston, and the Spurs recently signed NBDL standout Othyus Jeffers to a 10-day contract to give them another warm body on the perimeter. Thanks in large part to Ginobilis return to form, the Spurs entered Wednesdays game against the Bulls at 33-12, good for second place in the hyper-competitive Western Conference. But theyve lost three of their last four games, are 1-11 against the top seven teams in the league and now face the daunting challenge of that long road trip without Ginobili, and with Portland (33-13) and the Clippers (32-15) right on their heels. Chicago is facing its own injuries woes. All-Star point guard Derrick Rose was lost for the season with a knee injury for the second consecutive year and starting centre Joakim Noah (illness) and guard Kirk Hinrich (right hamstring) are game-time decisions for tonights game against San Antonio. So, Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said he has little empathy for the Spurs, not because Chicago is also battling injuries, but because of how deep San Antonio is. "Its the nature of the league. Its the grind of an 82-game season. Youre going to take injuries on. Its how you respond and the Spurs have always done a good job with that. Its the way the Spurs are built." ' ' '
