(SportsNetwork. T.J. Warren Jersey .com) - For a while the Pittsburgh Penguins seemed unfazed by the rash of injuries and illnesses which have beset the club so far this season. However, the hobbled Penguins will try to halt their longest losing streak in nearly three years when they host the Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday. Pittsburgh has lost four straight, including the last three in regulation, to post the franchises longest losing streak since a six-game slide from Dec. 29, 2011-Jan. 11, 2012. The Pens have scored a total of seven goals during the 0-3-1 stretch and only managed one goal over the last two outings. Help could be on the way for the Penguins tonight, however, with the potential return of a few players who have recently missed time. Forwards Craig Adams and Beau Bennett and defenseman Christian Ehrhoff are all questionable for tonight after practicing with the team on Tuesday. Adams (undisclosed) and Ehrhoff (lower body) have each missed the last five games, while Bennett has sat out the last 15 tilts with a lower-body issue. Backup goaltender Thomas Greiss, who is one of several Pittsburgh players to contract the mumps this season, also expects to suit up for tonights game after Jeff Zatkoff was sent down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Tuesday morning. Defenseman Paul Martin also skated at Tuesdays practice, but he wont play tonight. I dont know what everyones timeline is, but its nice to see guys back in practice, Pens captain Sidney Crosby told his teams website. But regardless of how many guys and when, you still have to make sure youre playing the right way so when guys do come back, its an easier adjustment for them and youre on the right track. Crosby scored the lone goal for Pittsburgh in its most recent outing, a 3-1 setback Monday in New Jersey. His 11th marker of the season gave the Pens a 1-0 lead with 5:23 left in the first, but the Devils took control of the game with a two-goal second period. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 24-of-27 shots and is expected to start again tonight. He is 12-8-2 with a 2.71 goals against average in his career against the Hurricanes. Carolina, which is second from the bottom in the overall NHL standings, is hoping to take advantage of the Penguins recent struggles tonight when the Hurricanes aim to close December with just their fourth victory of the month. The Canes are 3-9-1 in December and have lost two straight and 10 of their last 12 games. The clubs latest setback came Monday against visiting Montreal, which notched a 3-1 win to spoil the season debut of Jordan Staal. Staal, a former Penguins centerman, played in his first game of the season and was credited with an assist on his brother Erics power-play goal early in the third period. However, that was all the offense Carolina could muster, as the Hurricanes were held to less than two goals for the ninth time in 12 games. Cam Ward only made 16 saves to take the loss in a game that saw the Hurricanes hold a 29-19 edge in shots. We had our chances, we just couldnt put them home, Carolina forward Riley Nash said. Ward, who is 13-6-3 with a 2.38 GAA in his career against Pittsburgh, will start again tonight. Pittsburgh is beginning a four-game homestand tonight, and although the club boasts a 13-5-1 record at Consol Energy Center this season, the Pens have lost their last two home games against Carolina. The home skid includes a 4-2 Hurricanes victory in the Steel City on Nov. 28. That triumph is one of just four road wins this season for Carolina, which is 4-14-2 as the guest. The Pens have won six of the past eight overall meetings against the Panthers. Charles Barkley Suns Jersey .com) - The Oklahoma City Thunder will try to get back on track Monday night when they welcome the Minnesota Timberwolves to Chesapeake Energy Arena. Leandro Barbosa Suns Jersey . But luckily for the Canadian squad, one goal was all it needed. Winnipegs Sophie Schmidt scored the winner off a Diana Matheson corner kick to seal Canadas third-place spot in the Torneio Internacional de Futebol Feminino in Brazil on Sunday. http://www.sunsofficialshop.us/eric-bledsoe-suns-jersey/ . Off-season additions Jermain Defoe and Michael Bradley did not train with the club today, prompting Nelsen to declare its too early to tell if either will be ready for Saturday.TORONTO - Ghislaine Landrys last foray for Canada was a marvellous overtime try against France that earned third place at the Dubai Rugby Sevens.Landrys seventh try in six games at the early December event was a sweeping run from inside her own 22. She beat one French defender and then simply outran the rest for a 10-5 win.But ask Landry about Dubai and the 26-year-old from Toronto focuses on the 29-7 semifinal loss to Australia that denied Canada a trip to the final at the first stop of this seasons womens sevens series.To lose that game and to lose it that bad was a massive disappointment, she said in a recent interview. We put in so much work over the last four months, all kind of leading into getting into that final game. Yeah, it was rough.It was especially disappointing because the Canadian women had spent three weeks training Down Under ahead of Dubai and had beaten the Australians 17-12 to open a three-game series. The Australian women bounced back to win the next two 17-12 and 17-15.Weve beaten Australia. We know we can, said the charismatic back, who is tied for the series scoring lead with 45 points after Dubai.There is more to play for this season than ever before. The top four teams at the end of the campaign qualify automatically for the 12-team field at the 2016 Olympics where rugby sevens will make its debut.That should be well within the Canadian womens grasp.Canada finished third overall last season for the second straight year as New Zealand defended its title and Australia finished second.The Canadian women came close to beating New Zealand in Brazil in February only to lose 24-21 on a last-second score in the semifinal. And they were beaten 29-12 by the Black Ferns in the final of the 2013 Rugby World Cup Sevens in Moscow.But the Canadians are not content with the status quo.We want to win a tournament. We want to win more than one tournament, said Landry, whose team made the final in Atlanta in February but lost 36-0 to New Zealand. But for now its to get into that final ... so for us Day 2 Game 2, which is the semifinal, is massive.Weve finished third so many times that Im starting to hate that number, she said with a laugh.Would 2014-15 be a disappointment if Canada did not win an event? Absolutely, said Landry.Were not playing to finish third and were not going to the Olympics to finish third. Were going to win because we believe that we can.Landry, who did everything from gymnastics to skiing as a kid, decided rugby would be her sport at 10 after watching her sister play at high school. She started playing herself in Grade 9.I was fast so they stuck me on the wing, she recalled. They just said catch the ball and run.She progressed to the Ontario under-17 and under-19 teams as well as the Canadian under-19 team before heading to St. Francis Xavier University, falling in love with the East Coast while visiting her sister at Dalhousie.Landry, who played fullback and fly half, was the CIS rookie of the year in 2006 — when St F-X won the national title — and player of the year in 2007 and 08.St F-X has become a womens rugby power, adding titles in 2010, 2012 and 2014 with fellow Canadian star Magali Harvey following Landry at the school.Landry had some exposure to the Canadian sevens squad at university, going on two trips her first year, and was a reserve on the 15-player team ahead of the 2010 World Cup.She had hoped to go to the 2014 World Cup and went on tour a yyear ago, starting the first game before pulling her hip flexor prior to the second game. Grant Hill Jersey. Landry had been seen a possible World Cup fly half/fullback but eventually pulled back to focus on sevens after a subsequent ankle issue, fearful that injuries could put her on the sevens shelf as well.It was a tough decision. But playing sevens and 15s rugby was taking its toll.I needed a mental break. It was frustrating getting hurt. And if I played at World Cup, there was literally no time to kind of rest and recharge and go in mentally (into sevens) in a good space. The five-foot-four 143-pound Landry has escaped injury in recent months. But her calendar remains full leading up to the Olympics.I can pretty much tell you where Ill be every day up until then, to be honest, she said. And almost what Im doing every day. Everything is planned and scheduled.Canadian coach John Tait calls Landry a cerebral player who is one of the most skilled on the world circuit.She can kick and pass and makes pretty good decisions with the ball, which is why shes one of the leaders of the group, he said.Landry also makes other players better, drawing defenders to help open up the way for her teammates.Shes really unselfish, said Tait.Landry is one of 21 centralized players who push themselves to the limit in Victoria.There is a team breakfast every morning followed by speed, weight and skills sessions on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays. Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays are conditioning days. Sundays, and the occasional Thursday, are a day off.They are also on the pitch five or six days a week.Theres highs and lows, she said. Its not all flowers and rainbows out there, but were definitely a family.Its a full-time, demanding job. Landry says shes normally in bed by 8:30 p.m., getting up at 6 a.m.Its a lot of sleep, she said. We need it.Told she was too small to play at the highest level, Landry has built up her body. Today, she looks petite but powerful.Essentially our bodies are our armour, she explained. The more muscular you can be, the better youre going to fare in the contact parts of the game.And while her game has also evolved, she has not lost her speed. She may be the fastest on the Canadian roster. After the sevens season, Landry looks forward to playing in the Pan-American Games in Toronto in August.We havent played at home ever for sevens at the senior level. So to play within Canada is massive and to play at home is huge, said Landry. My parents came to the World Cup in 2013. They havent been to any other tournament. Its so far to travel for two days and its expensive, with work and all that. I have a pretty big extended family so theres a lot of tickets that my family have ordered.To play there and know that youre at home and know that Canada is behind you is huge, said Landry, whose French-Canadian roots come from her fathers side of the family. And its our first multi-sport Games so were excited to be part of that.The womens team will head to Brazil after the Pan-Ams to get a feel of the Olympic sites, so the next time you go youre focused and youre not wondering that thats like.The Canadian women, who are centralized in Victoria, will also play at home in April as the sevens series comes to nearby Langford for the first time.The next stop is Feb. 7-8 in Sao Paulo, Brazil, where Canada will play in a pool with England, Russia and South Africa.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
