Used to be the greatest rivalry in hockey was Canada vs. Nike Air Max Thea Zwart . Russia. When the best players from both countries hooked up for an eight-game series in 1972, a heated rivalry was born. Canada won the famous Summit Series, but the Russians taught them a thing or two about conditioning and team play. Then, in 1980, things changed again when a bunch of school kids did the unimaginable and beat the Russians in the semifinal of the Olympic Games the Miracle On Ice. Even though that victory wasnt for the gold medal, it is widely regarded as the greatest hockey game ever played and put the American right into the thick of things in terms of world dominance in the sport of hockey. Since then, Canada and Russia has waged a bitter ice war and now, with the Olympic Games being played in Russia, the host country desperate wants to win the gold medal. Thats what makes Saturdays match-up against the United States such an interesting one (7:30 a.m. ET, streaming at cbc.ca/olympics). Team USA lost the gold medal by a goal in 2010 in Vancouver and thoroughly dominated its opening game in Sochi, crushing Slovakia 7-1. Russia, meanwhile, beat Slovenia 5-2, but was not overly impressive. The Americans pros this time are influenced by the legend of the Miracle On Ice. Not only that, Team USA star defenceman Ryan Suter is the son of Bob Suter who was a member of the 1980 U.S. Olympic team. Ryan was born five years after the stunning win over the best team in the world. On the other side of the ice, Viktor Tikhonov, 25, is the grandson of legendary Russian coach who goes by the same name. The elder Tikhonov is 83 years old. All guns firing The Russians boast a high-power offence featuring the likes of superstars Alexander Ovechkin, Ilya Kovalchuk and Evgeni Malkin. All three scored goals in the opening victory against Slovenia. Team USA has a few snipers of its own starting with Phil Kessel of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In NHL action this season only Ovechkin, with 40 goals, has scored more often than Kessel who has 30. The speedy right-winger had a goal and three points in Team USAs win over Slovakia. Team USA coach Dan Bylsma has indicated he will stick with Jonathan Quick in goal. Quick, who led the Los Angeles Kings to the Stanley Cup two years ago, got the start ahead of Ryan Miller of the Buffalo Sabres. Miller almost singlehandedly led the United States to a gold medal in 2010. He was the tournaments most valuable player despite losing the final to Canada in overtime.

The former Detroit Red Wings captain was named to the Order of Hockey in Canada on Wednesday along with former womens national team captain France St-Louis and legendary university coach Clare Drake. Nike Air Max Thea Aanbieding . This weeks topics include his take on the Kevin Pillar incident, All-Star snubs, the firing of Padres general manager Josh Byrnes and more. http://www.goedkoophardloopschoenen.nl/adidas-zx-700/adidas-zx-700-dames.html .C. -- Larry Nelson shot his age for a share of the lead in the SAS Championship, while Nick Faldo failed to finish the round in his first regular Champions Tour event.The Montreal Canadiens followed a successful homestand with consecutive victories to open their longest road trip of the season. As long as theres solid goaltending, the location doesnt much matter. The Canadiens look for another strong performance in net Tuesday night as they head to Florida to take on the improving Panthers. You can catch all of the action live on TSN Radio 690 with coverage beginning at 6pm et. Montreal (23-11-2) has allowed nine goals over its last seven games while riding a red-hot Carey Price. He has posted a 6-1-0 record in that span behind a .956 save percentage and 1.29 goals-against average. After stopping 37 shots to beat the Islanders last Tuesday to head into the NHLs Christmas break, Price returned to the ice with 28 saves Monday in Montreals 3-1 win over Carolina. Carey Price was Carey Price, coach Michel Therrien said. We dictated the game. Carey made some big saves. The Canadiens have been outshot by 7.5 per contest during the past seven games, yielding an average of 31.7. That defensive effort may need to improve should Price, who has started each of the Canadiens last 10 games, cede the net to backup Dustin Tokarski on Tuesday. Price is 0-3-0 with a 3.67 GAA since the start of last season on the second night of back-to-backs. Its the same story every night. Were used to (Price) bailing us out, but you know what, we have to play better in front of him, Max Pacioretty said. We love that hes playing so well, but we know in this room that we owe him a couple games and a lot of goals. Hopefully down the road we can do that for him. Even if it makes sense to start Tokarski on the quick turnaround, theres a case to be made for Price. Hes 5-1-1 with a 0.99 GAA in his last seven starts against Florida. While Montreal sits in the top four in the Eastern CConference, the Panthers (16-9-8) have made a push toward the edge of the playoff picture of late. Nike Free 5.0 Heren Zwart. Florida went into the break with a shootout win over Pittsburgh, then scored four unanswered goals in the third period Sunday to beat Toronto 6-4 for its fourth victory in five tries. We had a good chat between periods, coach Gerard Gallant said. We talked about getting back to our game and playing it smart, and a north-south game, and fortunately for us, we got a couple of good bounces and got breaks, and I thought we worked hard and deserved to win the game. Jimmy Hayes scored Sunday for his third goal in Floridas last two games. His 10 goals rank second on the team behind only Nick Bjugstad (12), and the 6-foot-6 Hayes will tie a career high with his next one. (Sunday) could be a message to us that we want to create more traffic in front of the net, fellow winger Brad Boyes said. Three of those (four) goals were the result of having scrums in front of the net. Now Florida goes for its fifth straight win at home, something it hasnt done since March 2012, and itll likely take the ice with Roberto Luongo in net. Luongo, who needs two wins to tie Dominik Hasek for 11th on the all-time list, hasnt fared too well against Montreal in recent years. Hes 1-6-0 with a 3.30 GAA in his last seven starts dating to his time in Vancouver. Montreal has taken the last two meetings with Florida, most recently winning 4-1 on March 29 as Price made 36 saves and Pacioretty scored twice with an assist.
