Klingberg thought the Stars could play better.

Mattias Janmark scored in the second period for the Stars (1-2), and Martin Hanzal put the puck into an empty net with 2 seconds remaining.

Ben Bishop made 23 saves. In two starts, Bishop has allowed only two goals in 103:58 of ice time.

“We’ve got some work to improve in the third period, and just be a little bit more composed,” Bishop said.

“I felt like we sat back a little bit too much. We got away with a win today,” he said.

Justin Abdelkader scored in the second period for the Red Wings. Mrazek finished with 29 saves.

The Maple Leafs have scored 19 goals, the most for the first three games of a season in franchise history since 1917-18, when they were known as the Toronto Arenas and scored 27 goals in their opening three games.

Toronto, however, has allowed 10 goals.

The Devils have scored a total of 10 goals while allowing only three in wins over the Colorado Avalanche and the Sabres.

The young and talented Maple Leafs will pose a different kind of test for the Devils, who finished last in the Metropolitan Division last season with a 28-40-14 record.

“I think every game is a test in this league,” Devils coach John Hynes said on Tuesday after practice. “It doesn’t matter who it is. This was a (Toronto) team that was in the playoffs last year and is projected to be a playoff team Cheap Throwback NFL Jerseys this year. That’s a different level of team that people have projected us to be. So, I think when we talk about tests, it’s quite a different Cheap Vikings Jerseys China test.”

Roger Goodell sends letter to NFL teams, wants players to stand during anthem

The NFL has developed a plan to “move past” its ongoing debate about player protests during the national anthem and could enact it next week, commissioner Roger Goodell wrote Tuesday in a letter to all 32 teams.

Goodell made it clear in the letter, obtained by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, that he wants players to stand during the anthem. He did not provide specifics on how he intends to ensure it, but he wrote that it would “include such elements as an in-season platform to promote the work of our players on these core issues.”

Brantley was possibly going to play left field in Game 3 before Encarnacion’s injury. Austin Jackson was in left field instead, with Roberto Perez at catcher rather than Game 2 star Yan Gomes.

Francona said Game 1 winner Trevor Bauer would be “available” to pitch on three days’ rest — but wouldn’t commit to him starting — if the series goes to Game 4 on Monday, when there’s rain in the New York forecast.

Josh Tomlin was initially penciled in to start a potential Game 4, but he tossed two hitless innings in relief Friday and was the Game 2 winner. Tomlin is still under consideration for a possible Game 4 as well.

“I think we kind of reserve the right to get through the Cheap Authentic Soccer Jerseys game Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal and see who gets used,” Francona said. “We’ll see how the game goes tonight.”

NFL Insiders predict: Week 6 upsets, flops, declining vet QBs, more

Our NFL Insiders predict Week 6’s biggest upsets and fantasy flops and sleepers. Plus: Should Pittsburgh fans be worried about Ben Roethlisberger? Are the Packers the best one-loss team?

Yates: Mike Evans, WR, Buccaneers. By no means am I benching him, but let’s not overlook the matchup Evans draws this week against Arizona. Cornerback Patrick Peterson has been remarkable, holding primary duties in slowing down Marvin Jones Jr., T.Y. Hilton, Dez Bryant, Pierre Garcon and Alshon Jeffery to a combined total of 13 catches, 135 yards and two touchdowns in five games this season. Evans will have his hands full in Week 6.

Even though the Rangers held an 11-7 advantage in shots, it was the Blues who went into the first intermission enjoying a 2-1 advantage. Gunnarsson opened the scoring at 15 seconds with his second of the season, a wide-open wrist shot from the slot.

Mika Zibanejad tied the game 2:07 later with his fifth of the season on the power play.

New York was credited with six of the nine shots on goal following Zibanejad’s goal, but it was the Blues who went ahead on Schenn’s second of the season at 13:30 when the center banked Paul Stastny’s rebound off goalie Henrik Lundqvist.

“I went top shelf,” Schenn said. “Sometimes you are lucky.”

Benefiting a team that has started the season without Patrik Berglund (left shoulder), Jay Bouwmeester (left ankle), Robby Fabbri (left knee), Zach Sanford (left shoulder) and Cheap China Jerseys Alexander Steen (left hand) due to injuries, the Blues employed a tighter brand of hockey Cheap Discount Jerseys in a second period in which neither team scored and St. Louis had the two best opportunities.

Anthony and George have spent only about 30 game minutes total on the floor together.

“You don’t give up that tag freely — but he has a chance to be great,” Brown said. “There’s still a lot of work to be done. You know, when you look at his body of work — only playing 31 games, and really he’s only been playing basketball for six years, and he’s 23. He’s just scratching the surface.”

The extension solidifies Embiid as a cornerstone of the franchise’s future.

“He does things on a court that remind me of, you know, somebody that’s able to hear music and just play the song,” Brown said. “You know, he will study [Tim] Duncan, or study KD, or another player, and all of a sudden it’s a part of his game. He’s very unique, very unique.”

The deal will include some salary-cap protection for the 76ers should Embiid suffer an injury that causes him to miss significant playing time, league sources said.

The $25.3 million salary for Embiid in 2018-19 will rank third among NBA centers, trailing only Hassan Whiteside and Andre Drummond.

“I’m not concerned with that at all,” Anthony said.

Westbrook, There have been glimpses of their potential, with stops turning into quick transition hits, such as a third quarter burst Sunday, when Westbrook dropped a pass to a trailing Anthony for 3. Donovan is working to stagger the stars around the rest of the roster, appearing — at least for now — to prefer Anthony playing with the second unit and giving Westbrook and George more time as a tandem.

“Our defense is good. That’s all that matters, man,” Westbrook Cheap NFL Jerseys Paypal said. “As long as we defend at a high level, offense is easy. Offense is easy. So we ain’t Cheap Baseball Jerseys China worried about that.”

O.J. Simpson upset at reporter for recording him hours after prison release

O.J. Simpson was released from a Nevada prison Sunday morning, and he is already getting pulled over by the media.

The former NFL star’s attorney, Malcolm Lavergne, said on “SportsCenter” earlier in the day his client didn’t have any immediate plans to talk to media.

Also keep in mind that a tremendous amount of Watson’s value came from one play — the 49-yard scramble for a touchdown in Week 2 for which he deserved and received a tremendous amount of credit. Watson’s raw, unadjusted QBR for the season is 81.9. Take away that one play and it would drop to 70.1. Still good — third best, in fact — but it shows how incredibly valuable that one Wholesale Jerseys play is. The good news is FPI is smart enough to cap the impact of extreme plays such as that NFL Jerseys China one when considering information for its predictions.

It’s that freedom of choice that makes our democracy the envy of many around the world. The death threats that my family and I have received since my comments are heartbreaking. The racist and violent words directed at me and my son only serve as another reminder that our country remains divided and full of hateful rhetoric.

A pass complete to Cohen brings the Bears to the Packers’ 5.

If he cannot play, rookie Dion Dawkins will start a third game in Glenn’s place. According to Pro Football Focus, Dawkins is the 24th-ranked offensive tackle in the NFL this season, a respectable mark for a rookie. — Mike Rodak

Halftime. Packers 21, Bears 7. Aaron Rodgers is 50-0 in his career when leading at halftime in Lambeau.
