MONTREAL - Carey Price is doing a fine job impressing his teammates. Discount Nike Air Max 1 .Price stopped 34-of-35 shots as the Montreal Canadiens beat the visiting New York Rangers 3-1 Saturday night at the Bell Centre.The Canadiens netminder has given up just four goals in his last three starts while stopping 93 shots good for a .959 save percentage. Last Saturday, Price frustrated the Colorado Avalanche with a 32-save performance, and he limited the Detroit Red Wings to one goal on 28 shots on Tuesday.Hes playing unbelievably, said Max Pacioretty, who had a goal and an assist in Montreals Conference-best seventh win of the season. When you see him lead the way like that, it obviously gives us confidence and gives us motivation. It seems like weve been talking about the same thing for at least two years.It really is an honour to have a guy like that kicking for you.With the score knotted at 1-1 midway through the second period, Price stoned New Yorks Derick Brassard as he rushed out of the penalty box. Montreals Lars Eller scored the go-ahead goal just seconds later.At 11:14 of the third, Price made back-to-back saves on Martin St. Louis and John Moore to preserve Montreals two-goal lead. And with 90 seconds remaining on the clock, Price made a dramatic pad save on Dan Girardi to kill any hope of a New York comeback.Hes playing like one of the top goalies in the league, said Montreal head coach Michel Therrien. And tonight was no different.Hes calm. Hes a good leader for us. He gives us the confidence to attack every game with a chance to win.Added Eller: Hes playing like Carey Price. He spreads confidence to the defenders. He makes it look really easy. Were fortunate to have him back there.The only blemish on the night for Price was conceding a game-tying goal at 17:07 of the first period. With the Habs up 1-0, Price made a pad save on Girardis shot from the point, but kicked the puck right to a wide-open Carl Hagelin.The Rangers (4-4), however, wouldnt add another past Montreal in the teams first meeting since New York knocked the Canadiens out of last years Eastern Conference final in six games. The first game of that series also saw Ranger Chris Kreider injure Price for the remainder of the playoffs.The Habs (7-1-0) got a bit of revenge for their post-season exit on Saturday night, as Therriens men halted New Yorks three-game winning streak. Montreal is now 8-2-0 in their last 10 regular season games against the Rangers.Were a confident hockey club, we enjoy putting the work in, and we stick up for each other, said Price. Were not trying to do anything special, were just trying to have fun and get the job done.Montreal, still undefeated at home so far this year (4-0), secured two points when Eller got his stick on a loose puck in front of the net and slotted it home between Henrik Lundqvists pads. The Swede, who frustrated the Canadiens for much of last years intense playoff series, stopped 27-of-30 shots in defeat.You have to go to the net, and we did that very well tonight, said Eller, who scored his first of the season. Sooner or later its going to go in. A lot of the times, you dont score too many pretty goals anymore.After possibly the teams best start to a game this season, Tomas Plekanec scored a pretty goal in the first period for Montreal on a shorthanded, two-man breakaway.With Manny Malhotra in the box for holding, Plekanec capitalized on a New York mistake at the blue-line, poking the puck past an overly aggressive Ryan McDonagh along the boards. With all five Rangers in the offensive zone and acres of space in front of them, Plekanec and Pacioretty fooled Lundqvist with four quick passes before the Czech fired home his team-leading fifth of the season.A 2-on-0 like that, its a little less nerve racking than a breakaway, said Pacioretty. I was happy to give it over to Plecky. We all have confidence in each other right now, and that play kind of showed it. It sucked the momentum out of them.With the goal, Plekanec tied Habs legend Yvon Lambert for 27th on Montreals all-time scoring list.After Eller put the Canadiens in front at 11:46 of the second, Pacioretty added a third for Montreal at 6:35 of the final period when Dale Weise, from behind the net, found the left-winger all alone in the slot. The assist was Weises second of the game - his first two points of the season.We had a push in the third, but obviously it wasnt good enough, said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. We werent good enough in front of their net. We just couldnt capitalize on those second chances in front of Price.In just his sixth NHL game, Montreal-born rookie Anthony Duclair finished with one assist and three shots. The 19-year-old winger, whose friends and family were in the stands, now has four assists this season. He was named third star of the game.Prior to puck drop, fans at the Bell Centre observed a moment of silence to honour Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, two Canadian soldiers who were killed in separate attacks this week in Ottawa and Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Que.Notes: The game was Therriens 600th as an NHL head coach. Jiri Sekac was not in the lineup for the Canadiens, as the youngster sat for the second consecutive match. The Habs managed to contain the high-flying Rick Nash, who has scored eight of New Yorks 22 goals. Nash was kept to just one shot in 15:57 of work. Montreal embarks on a three-game Western road trip, with games against the Oilers, Flames, and Canucks next week. Nike Air Max 1 2022 . Peko, a fourth-round pick in 2006, started all 16 games and a playoff loss to San Diego last season. He was second on the line with 72 tackles and had a career-high three sacks. Nike Air Max 1 Store . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. https://www.cheapairmax1store.com/ . -- The Washington Redskins coaching staff distanced itself from other coaches Thursday by siding with ownership -- and not the players -- in the NFLs labour dispute.NEW YORK -- After a demoralizing start to the season where nothing seemed to go their way, the New York Mets are making all the right calls. Pinch-hitter Ike Davis hit a walkoff grand slam one batter after manager Terry Collins won his first replay challenge, and the Mets rallied to beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-3 Saturday. "That was tremendous ending especially for Ike going thru what hes going through," Collins said. "To come in in a big situation and come through, thats great stuff." Brandon Phillips gave the Reds a 3-2 lead with a two-run homer off Dillon Gee in the eighth, two innings after Curtis Granderson connected for a two-run drive off Johnny Cueto, his first homer with the Mets. Trailing by a run in the ninth, Juan Lagares walked leading off against fill-in closer J.J. Hoover. Anthony Recker got a bunt down on a ball that was above his eyes, and first baseman Joey Votto threw to shortstop Zack Cozart covering second. Second base umpire James Hoye called Lagares out. Running down the first base line, Recker knew the Mets had an opportunity. "As soon as he called him out I was thinking to myself how we should challenge it," Recker said. So was Collins. After a review of 2 minutes, 14 seconds, the call was overturned by crew chief John Hirschbeck. "Youve got to go out," Collins said. "Took a chance. But youve got to. Its just a close play anyway. Weve got that opportunity to challenge that, so I had to take a shot at it." Reds first-year manager Bryan Price agreed with the call. "They got it right and as frustrating as it was, we anticipated we were going to get the switch," Price said. Hoover (1-1), pitching the ninth for Aroldis Chapman who is out after being hit in the face by a line drive during spring training, then walked Ruben Tejada to load the bases. "That leadoff walk, didnt give myself any chance really," Hoover said. Davis lost his starting first base job to Lucas&nbssp;Duda a day earlier, but was called on to hit in the pitchers spot and lined a 0-1 curveball off the facing of the right field porch, setting off a gleeful celebration at Citi Field that included a whipped cream pie in Davis face. Nike Air Max 1. Collins said Davis will start Sunday against Alfredo Simon, a decision made before the game. "As long as Duda keeps hitting thats going to be my role," Davis said. Duda hit two homers Friday night in the Mets 4-3 win over the Reds. The Mets won their second straight after being swept by Washington in three games to open the season. Cincinnati dropped to 1-4 for the first time since 2003, when it finished 69-93. The Mets beleaguered bullpen came through, too. Scott Rice got two outs and Carlos Torres (1-0) worked a scoreless ninth to give the Mets a chance. In a blustery wind with gusts up to 35 mph that sent papers swirling around Citi Field, Cueto and Gee were dominant early against two of the leagues worst hitting teams thus far. Cueto didnt allow a hit until Tejada doubled with one out in the fifth inning and Gee was perfect until Tucker Barnhart, subbing for injured catcher Devin Mesoraco (oblique strain), lined his first big league hit to right field with one out in the third. Cueto gave up five hits and two runs, lifting any lingering worry about his health after he made only 11 starts last season. He struck out nine and walked three -- one intentionally. Gee allowed six hits and a walk. He struck out four. NOTES: Reds CF Billy Hamilton was scratched from the lineup because of a jammed left middle finger. He was injured sliding head-first into second base Friday night when he was caught stealing. He played centre field in the ninth. ... The only other walkoff, pinch-hit grand slam for the Mets came in 1986, when Tim Teufel beat the Phillies. ... Phillips has a hit in all 28 games hes played against the Mets in New York. ... Mets LHP Jonathon Niese is scheduled to make his first start of the season Sunday in the series finale. ' ' '
