ST. UK Nike Black Flowers Roshe Run Womens Pattern Shoes . PAUL, Minn. - After failing to protect a lead two nights ago against one of the NHLs worst teams, the Minnesota Wild held on late against a fellow playoff contender. Zach Parise broke a tie early in the third period, and Darcy Kuemper stopped 29 shots to break the franchise rookie victory record in Wilds 2-1 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday night. After Jason Pominville had several whacks at the puck from in close, Parise stuffed it past Rangers backup goalie Cam Talbot 1:03 into the third. "Yeah, its going to be important from here on out to learn how to protect leads and win games the hard way," Parise said. "Tonight, it was a hard game, the way they played. They were in our face all the time through the neutral zone." Two nights after Kuemper failed hold a three-goal lead against Edmonton, he bounced back for his 12th victory. Nino Niederreiter also scored to help the Wild snap a three-game losing streak. Derek Stepan scored for the Rangers, who buzzed around the net in the final seconds, but couldnt get one past Kuemper. New York lost its second straight and for only the seventh time on the road in its last 24 games. "After they scored their second goal in the third period, they sort of backed off a little bit on their forecheck, and we were able to get some chances there but werent able to finish," Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. Kuempers highlights included a save from close range on Derick Brassard with 8 seconds left and a key stop on Rick Nash when the Rangers were on the power play late in the third. After the game, Kuemper was asked if he felt any added pressure after Tuesday nights collapse. "No, you know what, maybe a little bit before the game. But once you get out there its just another game and you just want to do what youve done all year," he said. "I think as a whole we did a good job of that." Niederreiter scored from the slot in the first after confusion between Nash and John Moore led to a turnover deep in the New York zone. Stepan tied it on the power play at 3:19 of the second with a wrist shot that Kuemper never saw. Stepan hit the post on a shot 15 seconds earlier. It was the second straight game New York was held to a single goal. "I dont think it was so much them, I think were more worried about ourselves," Nash said. "We have to establish more offence, more shots. Its just not going our way right now. Weve got to work through this." Talbot — starting the first game of a back-to-back in place of Henrik Lundqvist — made 24 saves. Both teams are trying to hold down playoff spots as the season winds down. The Wild are in the top wild-card slot in the Western Conference, while the Rangers are in a battle to finish among the top three teams in the Metropolitan Division in the East. "What I liked was the two goals that we scored were goals that we can score in the playoffs," said Wild coach Mike Yeo, whose team has played in six straight one-goal games, going 3-1-2. "Those are the kind of goals that we have to score going forward. That was one of our keys to the game, we need a playoff offence mentality. I still think we can be a little bit more aggressive to the net." NOTES: While calling the game from between the benches in the first period, Wild television analyst Mike Greenlay took an accidental stick to the face from New Yorks Mats Zuccarello. Greenlay got stitches during the intermission and called the rest of the game with a small bandage under his left eye. "Upper body injury," Yeo joked after the game. ...

On July 27 cyclings best-known race will host "La Course by Le Tour de France" -- a one-day womens competition staged hours before Tour riders race on the same circuit to finish the three-week event on Paris Champs-Elysees.(Sports Network) - The St. Louis Cardinals have little to spare when it comes to blowing opportunities to strengthen their playoff hopes and will begin a three-game series versus the NL Central-rival Chicago Cubs tonight from Busch Stadium. The Cardinals squandered a chance to bolster their postseason position with Thursdays 8-6 loss to the New York Mets in the finale of a three-game set. They held a 6-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning and allowed six runs to cross, putting an end to their four-game winning streak. St. Louis had won seven of eight games and is two behind Atlanta in the NL Wild Card chase with six contests to go. The Braves were idle Thursday. Albert Pujols and Allen Craig both homered in the loss, while starter Jake Westbrook did not record a decision with six innings of one-run ball. Jason Motte allowed three runs in the ninth and Mark Rzepczynski absorbed the loss for permitting the go-ahead run for the Cardinals, who are five games in back of Milwaukee for the NL Central lead. "I didnt expect us to win the rest of the games on our schedule," said St. Louis slugger Lance Berkman. "We still had a good series, today notwithstanding. We still have an opportunity. Were still right there." Berkman just agreed to a one-year extension with the club. Pujols has reached base safely in 38 straight games and outfielder Matt Holliday could return to the lineup soon after missing time due to inflammation in his right middle finger. Chris Carpenter will lead St. Louis into battle with the Cubs and is 2-0 in his previous three starts. He last pitched in Sundays 5-0 win at Philadelphia and tossed eight scoreless innings to improve to 10-9 with a 3.66 earned run average in 32 starts this season. The right-hander will make his third start against the Cubs in 2011, going 1-0 over the first two starts, and is 11-6 withh a 3. Womens Fluorescent Green Nike Roshe Run Mesh Shoes. 12 ERA in 24 lifetime matchups. The Cubs would probably enjoy nothing more than to make sure the Cardinals chances of making the postseason are even more difficult with a successful series in the Gateway City. They have won four of their past six games and recently took two of three meetings from the Brewers at Wrigley Field, including Wednesdays victory in the series finale. Matt Garza was brilliant on the hill and held Milwaukee to just one unearned run over nine innings of work. He also struck out 10 batters and issued one walk. Cubs shortstop Starlin Castro continued to swing a hot bat and went 2- for-3 with an RBI to reach 199 hits for the season. He is aiming to become the youngest player in franchise history to reach the 200-hit milestone, and also the first Cubs shortstop to do it. He would be only the fifth MLB player since 1940 to get 200 hits at 21 years old or younger. Castro has reached base safely in 34 straight games, tying Woody Englishs 1929 record for Cubs shortstops. He is the first Cubs player to have a streak that long since Jerome Waltons 43-gamer in 1989. "I cant wait until he gets to 200, because itll be a special moment for all of us," Cubs first baseman Carlos Pena said. In the midst of Castros chase to history, Ryan Dempster takes the ball for Chicago this evening and is having a bit of trouble on the mound lately. Dempster has dropped two straight starts and is 0-5 in his previous seven outings. Dempster was beaten by Houston in Sundays 3-2 defeat and yielded three runs over seven frames, falling to 10-13 in 32 starts this season with a 4.63 ERA. Dempster, a righty, is 1-1 in two starts against the Cardinals this season and 8-8 with a 4.64 ERA through 46 career games (20 starts) in this series. St. Louis has won eight of 12 meetings with Chicago this season, with a 5-1 mark at home. cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
