ST. Hirving Lozano Mexico Jersey . LOUIS -- Brian Elliott got a warm welcome in his old home.Elliott stopped 23 shots in his return to St. Louis, Johnny Gaudreau and Sam Bennett each had a goal and an assist and the Calgary Flames beat the Blues 4-1 on Tuesday night.I had so much fun playing in front of these fans and in this building that I wanted to do it again even though its with another team, Elliott said. The guys did a heck of a job in front of me to get that win for me.Elliott was traded from St. Louis to Calgary in June, and the 17,337 in attendance serenaded him with chants of Moose, his nickname, on his first couple of saves.I knew how much the fans kind of loved that. It was special for me hearing that and really kind of got me into the game and have that feeling a little bit, Elliott said. Im sure they dont like the result now, but it meant a lot.Elliotts best save came late in the second when he slid his right pad across the crease to rob Nail Yakupov on a rebound attempt.He reads the play so well, Flames defenseman Mark Giordano said. A lot of their one-timers, if you really watch, hes already there before the puck is shot. Its a confidence booster for us. We know we can give up some shots and hes going to be there to stop them for us.Dennis Wideman and Deryk Engelland also scored to help the Flames snap a seven-game losing streak at St. Louis.Kevin Shattenkirk scored for the Blues on a two-man advantage in the third, and Carter Hutton made 26 saves. After winning their first three games, the Blues are 1-2-1 in their last four.The Blues werent surprised by Elliotts effort.He was great tonight, but we didnt make it too hard on him either, Shattenkirk said. Hes too good of a goalie to not have traffic in front of him, to not have grade-A scoring chances. We didnt really do anything to make him uncomfortable.Widemans power-play goal early in the first ended a string of 19 straight penalty kills for the Blues. Wideman gave the Flames the 1-0 lead after former Blue Troy Brouwer won the puck along the boards and found Wideman alone in the slot.Engelland added to the lead midway through the first after Kris Versteeg sent him in alone on Hutton with a pass. The play started after Vladimir Tarasenko whiffed on a shot on the other end, sending the Flames in on an odd-man rush.Bennetts wrist shot went in through a maze of traffic early in the second to give Calgary a 3-0 lead. Bennett had an assist on Engellands goal, giving him his second multipoint game of the season, both against St. Louis.The game was also a homecoming for Calgarys Matthew Tkachuk, son of former Blue Keith Tkachuk, who had an assist on Bennetts goal. Matthew Tkachuk, the 6th overall pick by the Flames, was one of four St. Louis area natives taken in the first round of this years amateur draft.It was fun, Matthew Tkachuk said. Kind of an eye-opening experience too with the play and the rink you kind of grew up in, so its great to get the win. I had a lot of people here watching so Im sure theyre pretty happy.Game notes Blues F Alexander Steen played in his 500th game with St. Louis. ... Giordano played in his 600th game with Calgary. ... Brouwer and Elliott both joined the Flames in the offseason and received a standing ovation after the Blues played a video tribute to them midway through the first period.UP NEXTFlames: Return home to face Ottawa on Friday night.Blues: Continue a three-game home stand against Detroit on Thursday night. Miguel Layun Jersey . Soukalova missed only one target and completed the 15-kilometre course in 40 minutes, 32.6 seconds for both victories in this seasons individual discipline. Darya Domracheva of Belarus was second, 34. Jesus Molina Mexico Jersey .C. -- Glenn Howard needed an extra end to move into the Masters Grand Slam of Curling final. . President of baseball operations Larry Beinfest was fired Friday after 12 years with the Marlins. The move came as the team neared the end of its third consecutive last-place season in the NL East. With Kobe Bryant gone and the team in desperate need of mature leadership, the Los Angeles Lakers are turning to Luol Deng for help on the court and in the locker room.The Lakers and Deng agreed to a four-year, $72 million contract Saturday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be signed until Thursday.The 31-year-old Deng averaged 12.3 points and 6.0 rebounds for Miami last season. The high-energy forward has made the playoffs seven times, with the Bulls and Heat, and commands immediate respect with his work ethic and ability to relate to teammates.Thats exactly what Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak sought to help shape an impressionable roster of intriguing young talent for first-year coach Luke Walton. Those youngsters went wayward last season while Bryant concluded his farewell tour. Deng will now join fellow new signee Timofey Mozgov and holdover Lou Williams to provide veteran stability.The Lakers finished at 17-65, the worst record in the franchises proud history, and were plagued by salacious headlines and speculation over how the players responded to the old-school leadership from Bryant and former coach Byron Scott.And the core of the team -- DAngelo Russell, Julius Randle, Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr. -- got only younger last month when the Lakers drafted 19-year-old Duke forward Brandon Ingram with the second overall pick. Deng is a fellow Blue Devil, and both players are 6-foot-9.Kupchak entered free agency with a huge amount of salary cap room, but little hope of attracting top free agents determined to win championships now. Instead, the Lakers hoped to place an experienced supporting cast around Russell, Ingram, Randle and Clarkson. Clarkson agreed to a four-year, $50 million deal Friday to stay with the team as a restricted free agent.I think history tells you that a bunch of young guys on a team is probably not a good thing, Kupchak said last month. Jesus Manuel Corona Jersey. They look around for leadership and advice from somebody whos been through this a couple of times, and if theres nobody to talk to, then they really dont know how to handle the situation. So I think we will look to add some veteran leadership, and hopefully not only leadership, but guys who can help us win games.A few minutes after free agency opened, the Lakers committed $64 million over the next four years to Mozgov, the 7-1 Russian who mostly sat on Clevelands bench during the Cavaliers championship run this summer. Mozgov doesnt seem an obvious fit for Waltons up-tempo approach, but the Lakers value his size, defense and experience.Although Deng finished last season with his lowest scoring average since his rookie year in Chicago in 2004-05, he is a hard-nosed defensive forward who can play multiple positions and deliver solid offense. He is also known for his diligence in practice, a quality that can only help this team.For the third straight summer, the glitzy Lakers have been on the outside looking in as the biggest names on the free-agent market have taken meetings and agreed to deals.They never got a meeting with Kevin Durant, while Los Angeles native DeMar DeRozan chose to stay in Toronto. Al Horford appears to be headed elsewhere, and the Lakers failed to attract Nicolas Batum or former Lakers forward Kent Bazemore before closing their pursuit of Deng.Thats why the Lakers didnt hesitate to go to a fourth year on the big contract for Deng. He will be entering his 13th season, but has proved durable during his career with the Bulls, Cavaliers and Heat. And he had several other suitors lining up for a crack at him, including Tom Thibodeau, the former Bulls coach now with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
