came up short and in the

Carey Prices road to recovery took another step forward on Tuesday. The Montreal Canadiens netminder participated in light full practice drills at the teams morning skate and took the majority of reps at one end of the ice while sharing a net with Dustin Tokarski. Price worked with Peter Budaj and Tokarski during Tuesdays skate and was dropping to the butterfly position, considered progress in his rehab. During the teams recent west coast road trip, the 26-year-old Price was only making lateral and forward/backward movements in his net while staying on his feet. Once the team switched to 3-1 and 3-2 drills, Price worked alone with goaltending coach Stephane Waite, with heavy concentration on staying in his butterfly. Price originally suffered a lower-body injury at the Sochi Olympics. In the first post-Olympics practice, he left the ice after moving laterally to make a save during a power-play drill. He was placed on injured reserve on March 3. Head coach Michel Therrien said following Tuesdays practice that hes disappointed his starting goaltender was injured in Sochi but the experience and success he enjoyed will benefit him and the team long term. Therrien wouldnt disclose his starting goalie or lineup changes for Wednesdays game versus the Boston Bruins, but said winger Brandon Prust (upper-body injury) is ready to return. Prust missed the last seven games after injuring himself on the first day back following the week off for the Olympic break. Budaj has handled the responsibilities in net for Montreal with Prices absence, with Dustin Tokarski backing up. Price has a 26-17-5 record this season for the Canadiens, with a 2.33 goals-against average and .925 save percentage. The Canadiens are home to the Ottawa Senators on Saturday and they travel to Buffalo on Sunday. https://www.arizonafootballshop.com/70-Jersey .

The Rays hope to stay alive for the postseason and salvage the finale of this series Sunday at Rogers Centre, where they dropped a 7-2 decision Saturday. Chris Archer lasted 2 1/3 innings in the no-decision, charged with a run and five hits, and Alex Torres suffered the loss in relief. https://www.arizonafootballshop.com/21-Jersey . James Harden wasnt worried and told his coach as much. "He was fired up but I told him: Its OK. Were going to be all right," Harden said. And they were. Houston scored 17 straight points after that timeout, led by 10 from Harden, to take the lead and roll to an easy 129-106 win.You couldnt actually see any steam coming from Graham DeLaets ears, but figuratively speaking, its likely he was blowing like a tea kettle as he walked back around the large pond stuck in the middle of the seventh hole. DeLaet was making that trip after dunking his ball in the water and then getting a questionable ruling from an overzealous and possibly optically challenged rules official. He ended up making a double-bogey seven which seemed to derail his attempt to move up the leaderboard at the PGA Championship. But the Weyburn, Sask., native followed that up by making birdie on six of his next nine holes for a round of 68 to keep himself within striking distance of the lead. “It was a good day. I escaped the disaster that could have been,” he said. DeLaets round didnt get out to a great start. He made sloppy bogeys on the second and fifth holes before arriving at the seventh. After hitting a decent drive, he elected to go for the green with his second shot. The ball started left and sliced towards the green but came up short and in the water. Before it went for a plunge, it seemed to cross the hazard line on the far side of the water and DeLaet went to drop his ball about 60 yards from the green at the spot where he saw it cross.An official objected and a discussion ensued following which DeLaet started the long walk back around the pond to play his fourth shot. DeLaet took the high road and didnt say much about the situation but his tight expression indicated clearly he wasnt too happy. “Yeah, there was definitely a question about it,” he said, refusing to elaborate any further. However playing partner Steve Strricker offered up his view of the situation.dddddddddddd “Graham was going to drop and the official came running over and said no, no, no. There was no way he was going to let him play from that spot,” said the former Canadian Tour player. “At the end of the day, only Graham knows whether it crossed the line, but he did the right thing. You dont want to be known as the guy who took a [questionable] drop.” The long walk back took so long that the twosome behind – Phil Mickelson and Bernd Wiesberger – played their shots to the green before DeLaet did. After he finally put the ball in the cup, he put a seven down on the card. That might have been the end of his tournament, but he suddenly caught fire, making birdies on his next four holes. He added a couple more coming in and only a stubbed wedge on the final hole prevented him from closing with another one. Now he finds himself in a large pack of golfers chasing Rory McIlroy knowing that he still has an outside chance. “I think its going to be exciting,” he stated. “Im going to definitely have to get off to a better start, but I think if I can get three or four under through the first six or seven holes, anything can happen.  I think its going to take a low one tomorrow but I think its definitely a possibility.” DeLaet does have the ability to make birdies in bunches, as evidenced by yesterdays late flurry. So posting a 63 is not out of the question. When asked if he thought he could win the tournament, he replied positively. “It would be great to lift up that big trophy,” he said with a wide smile.
