WASHINGTON -- Trailing by a goal, the Washington Capitals spent their second intermission venting about their poor play. Sean Wotherspoon Air Max 97 . Marcus Johansson used the rest of the game to lead the comeback.Johansson scored the tying goal late in the third period and got the winner midway through overtime to rally the Capitals to a 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.We talked in there, pulled ourselves together and played a lot better, said Johansson, who has four goals in his last five games to raise his season total to 11. It wasnt pretty, but we got the puck deep and we got it done, and thats all that matters.Jay Beagle added the Capitals first even-strength goal in three games as Washington snapped a three-game losing skid.Braden Holtby made 31 saves in the victory, the Capitals second over the Sabres in an 11-day stretch, with losses to Toronto, the New York Islanders and Tampa Bay sandwiched in between.Weve been going down a little bit of the wrong path right now, said John Carlson, who assisted on Johanssons tying goal. The world isnt ending, but we know its not good enough for this group and our expectations of each other and ourselves.Even with the victory, Capitals coach Barry Trotz still left the Verizon Center frustrated by captain Alex Ovechkin, who picked up his fifth minor penalty in three games.Unacceptable. Hes their leader. He cant take those penalties, Trotz said. Im going to address it harshly with him tomorrow.Kyle Okposo scored his team-leading eighth goal of the season to give the Sabres the lead in the second period, and Zemgus Girgensons also scored early for Buffalo.Robin Lehner made 30 stops for the visitors, who were forced by injury to play two rookie defenders with a combined one game of previous NHL experience.Still, the Sabres outshot the Capitals 16-7 in a second period that ended with Buffalo leading 2-1, before Washington turned the tables with a 16-9 edge and a goal in the third.Buffalo was trying to win three out of four for the second time this season.I mean give them credit, theyre a good team, but I think were starting to sit back and they have speed, you know? Lehner said. I think we see that we can play. Weve just got to stop changing, changing how we play.Washington turned up its pressure as the third period went on and eventually induced Evander Kane into a hooking penalty with under 6 1/2 minutes remaining.Johansson tied it just five seconds after the ensuing faceoff, redirecting Carlsons shot into traffic.Washington killed a tripping penalty on Beagle before the third ended.Then Johanssons winner came 2:38 into the extra period as he took a cross-ice pass from Dmitry Orlov and fired a one-time that beat Lehner over his left pad.I think they got a little bit tired, Johansson said of the goal. I was actually a little bit tired too. But I think (Evgeny Kuznetsov) and (Orlov) both made great plays to set that up, and I just tried to get it on net. It was a good feeling to see it go in.Game notes Buffalo C Jack Eichel finished the game despite appearing to hurt his left leg in a second-period tangle with Capitals D Orlov. It was Eichels fourth game back from a high ankle sprain in the same leg that forced him to miss two months. ... Beagles goal was Washingtons first at even strength since the third period of a 4-2 loss at Toronto on Nov. 26, a span of more than 2 hours and 28 minutes of game time. ... Sabres D Erik Burgdoerfer made his NHL debut after he was recalled from AHL Rochester to step in for D Josh Gorges (broken foot). ... The teams conclude their three-game season series in Buffalo on FridayUP NEXTSabres: Host Edmonton on Tuesday night in the opener of a four-game homestand.Capitals: Host Boston on Wednesday night. Air Max 97 For Sale Cheap . The team said Saturday that Lopez was hurt during its 121-120 overtime loss at Philadelphia on Friday. The Nets said they would issue another update next week after consultation with their doctors. Vapormax And Air Max 97 For Sale .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. http://www.vapormax97.com/cr7-air-max-97-red.html . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . West Indies 196 (Blackwood 62, Ashwin 5-52) and 388 for 6 (Chase 137*, Dowrich 74, Holder 64*, Blackwood 63) drew with India 500 for 9 decl. (Rahul 158, Rahane 108*, Chase 5-121)Scorecard and ball-by-ball detailsThere is a lot to be said of Roston Chase. Hes languid at the crease. He plays late and close to his body. He wasnt perturbed by a tough situation. And his timing stood out. Fifty years since it was last done for West Indies and a few days after the 80th birthday of the man who did it, Chase achieved the double of a century and a a five-for in the same Test. In the process he helped pull off an improbable draw: batting for survival, West Indies had lost four wickets in 15.5 overs on day four, but on the final day they gave up only two.Chase looked correct when he defended, graceful when he attacked and bloody determined all through. Sir Garry Sobers wouldve enjoyed a fellow Bajan emulating his feat with an innings like that.On a wet day four, along with 82.1 overs, it appeared West Indies fight had gone missing too. Their openers fell early, and in ungainly fashion. One senior player fell for a duck and another was a sitting duck against a short ball. It had become a walk in the park for India. This morning, however, they were stuck in the mud. The first 25 balls cost 40 runs. The fast bowlers were hit through the line and over the top. The spinners were hit against the turn. Chase had finally made it a contest. At tea, he had the favourites sweating. An hour and a half later, he made Virat Kohli concede and take the draw. The first draw at Sabina Park since 1998.India tried to bounce Chase, he pulled them away. India used reverse swing, he kept them out shortening his backlift. India tried to spin him out, but his open stance showed him exactly what was coming at him. On 99, he flicked a ball on his pads right through the man at midwicket, completed the single and celebrated his first Test hundred in his second Test match by crossing his hands in the shape of an X over his head. His coach and team-mates were clapping with gusto. Sir Viv Richards was up on his feet screaming Roston!From the other end, Jamaicas own Jermaine Blackwood smashed 63 off 54 balls and the man who replaced him at the crease, Shane Dowrich, applied himself beautifully. He fell 26 short of what might have been a maiden Test hundred when umpire Ian Gould adjudged him lbw to Amit Mishra not spotting an inside edge.This was only the third time over the last 12 Tests that a Kingston crowd got to watch cricket on the fifth day. And while their numbers could have been better, their investment in the match couldnt be faulted too much. One fan implored Dowrich to come again - meaning restart - after he turned his nose up at the turn a Mishra legbreak got. The outside edge evaded a diving Ajinkya Rahane at slip. Another boomed good shot, good shot when Chase drove R Ashwin down the ground. Among the fans was Sheldon Cottrell, who had completed his CPL stint last week, with a liittle girl next to him. Air Max 97 Summit White For Sale. They were all watching history.India bowled 88.1 overs. They conceded 340 runs and could get only two wickets. For the first time in nine days, their opposition was willing to give, well, opposition. Kohli began to chirp at Chase to see if he could be unruffled. Mishra fielded a ball that was pushed back at him and flung it back at the batsman in frustration. Things were getting out of hand. More accurately, West Indies were not giving anything away under the the kind of pressure where giving away an inch was as good as a mile. Chase and Dowrich raised the teams first hundred partnership of the series at the rate of 3.77 runs per over. Chase and Blackwood had added 93 runs at 5.26 an over. This was not backs-to-the-wall batting. This was special.Those in the know say batsmen need to switch on and switch off. But it was difficult to say if Chase ever switched off. The smallest of smiles broke through when he secured his century; it was only his third in first-class cricket and this was only his 31st first-class match. He was batting like he had a 100 of each.Chase defied India when they had secured a lead of 304 runs, and then taken four wickets in only 15.5 overs on a rain-hit fourth day. With 98.1 overs on the final day, they were supposed to get back-to-back Test victories in a series away from home. Something that has not happened since 2005, against Zimbabwe. Dilute the equation to the top-eight teams, and you end up at 1986, against England.The bowlers did try. Mohammed Shami made the old and the new ball swing. Ishant Sharma kept squaring batsmen up. Ashwin couldnt have one of his days - 30-4-114-1. Umesh Yadav and Mishra were disappointing, a combined 37-8-134-2.West Indies saw every ball that came down, inspected them carefully and then put them in their place. As good as the strokes themselves was the batsmens belief they could measure up.Blackwood showed it when he lifted Shami over his head for a six. When he leapt back, stood tall and hit Ashwin despite the extra bounce to the cover boundary. He became the first West Indian since Shivnarine Chanderpaul in 2014 to hit two half-centuries in the same match.Dowrich showed it when he lofted Ashwin over the long-on fence. When he used Umesh Yadavs reverse swing to his advantage and flicked through midwicket and when he topped that by pulling the next ball to the boundary.Holder showed it when he blunted a brutal short ball from Shami, dropping his wrists but keeping his eyes on it to make sure he could control where it fell. He got to his fifty with a six against Ashwin.It was only the first time in West Indies history that their Nos 5 through 8 had scored 50 or more in the same innings. Thats so rare it has only happened five times in all of Test history.The man who inspired it all walked away unbeaten after an entire days play. 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 ' ' '
