Adidas Yeezy Norge/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . He didnt want the Washington Capitals to get off to a quick start.The Capitals scored on Nicklas Backstroms goal barely three minutes into the game, but the Blue Jackets didnt fold and got a last-minute goal with Backstrom in the penalty box and escaped with their fourth straight win, 3-2 over the angry Capitals. Backstrom was called for high-sticking Nick Foligno with 1:34 remaining, a penalty that the Capitals vehemently disputed.Alexander Wennberg took a pass from Foligno and slammed it past Capitals goalie Braden Holtby with 54 seconds left in the game. The goal was confirmed after a video review.It was the Blue Jackets second power play goal of the game, and Washington coach Barry Trotz didnt like the call that cost his team.If you see the replay, he doesnt really touch him, and his head pops up when (Backstroms) stick is already on the way down. Thats just a little disrespectful to the game, Trotz said. The penalty call was not great for me.Backstrom, who also assisted on Alex Ovechkins ninth goal of the season midway through the second period, didnt think he touched Foligno.Last two minutes you get a penalty thats not a penalty, thats tough, Backstrom said.Columbus has its longest winning streak since they ran off nine straight wins from March 18-April 4, 2015.Sometimes it seemed like they took over the game more and more but we started to play smart and at the end of the game we felt like we played smart and got opportunity to score, Wennberg said. Find a way to win. Its as easy as that.Tortorella, who has eliminated morning skates from the Blue Jackets routine, talked to his team about the perils of getting off to a slow start.They score one, but they dont score the two and three where it can really knock you out in an afternoon game like this, really a morning game, he said. That steadied us a little bit.Ovechkins ninth goal of the season gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead, but the Blue Jackets tied it just 14 seconds into the third period on Brandon Dubinskys second goal of the season.Columbus goal by Foligno six minutes into the second period broke Washingtons streak of 15 straight successful penalty kills.Other than the disputed call, Trotz didnt find much to find fault with -- even though it was the Capitals second loss in five days to the Blue Jackets.They played a solid game. We played a solid game. Theres not going to be a lot of mistakes, Trotz said.Game notes Washington was without C Lars Eller and RW T.J. Oshie. Both have upper-body injuries. They were injured in Fridays game against Detroit. . C Paul Carey was recalled from AHL Hershey. . Columbus D Dalton Prout (upper body) missed his third straight game. . D Todd Jones (foot) was out for the sixth straight game. Tortorella says Jones is back practicing with the team, but isnt sure when hell return.UP NEXT:Blue Jackets: Host Colorado on Monday. They play five games in seven nights.Capitals: Continue season-long five-game homestand against St. Louis on Wednesday. Adidas x_Plr Herre/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . - Goaltender Philippe Desrosiers of the Rimouski Oceanic has broken a shutout record that was only three months old in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Adidas Superstar Norge/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .com) - Manchester City midfielder David Silva is expected to miss the next four weeks because of a calf problem. http://www.superstarskonorge.com/nike-free-rn-dame.html/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> . Louis Blues teammates who would also be participating in the Olympics, Alex Pietrangelo felt right at home, no different in some ways to the travel experience of any old road trip – save for the length of the journey, that is. LAUSANNE, Switzerland -- Olympic 100-meter champion Elaine Thompson took center stage in the absence of her Jamaican teammate Usain Bolt in the first Diamond League meet after the Rio de Janeiro Games on Thursday.Thompson timed 10.78 seconds with a slight tailwind at Athletissima -- just .07 outside her time in the 100 final in Rio and .08 behind her world-leading time this season.It was Thompsons second time down the track after most runners initially ignored a false start gun.To be able to produce (10.78) on a second attempt, its a great time, said Thompson, a double gold medalist in 100 and 200 who almost matched Bolts title triple, but took home silver in the 4x100 relay.With Bolt celebrating his 30th birthday in London, Churandy Martina of the Netherlands won the 200 in 19.81, just .03 slower than Bolt ran in the Olympic final and a national recordIn the 100, Bolts gold-medal winning relay teammate Asafa Powell clocked 9.96 to win on a track where he ran his personal record of 9.72 soon after the Beijing Olympics.One contender to help the sports void when Bolt retires is Jamaican 110 hurdler Omar McLeod. However, the Olympic champion was edged by .01 on Thursday by the rival he beat for gold, Orlando Ortega. The Spaniards winning run was 13.11.American hurdlers dominated the womens races, and Kendra Harrison again showed what she could have achieved in Rio had she earned selection at national trials.Harrison, who set a world record of 12.20 in London last month, won here in 12.42 -- faster by .06 than the Olympic gold-winning time of teammate Brianna Rollins, who did not run Thursday.Olympic champion Dalilah Muhammad timed 53.78 in a clear 400 hurdles win.Two American bronze medalists in Rio won theirr events: LaShawn Merritt clocked 44. Herre/Dame Adidas Originals Superstar Supercolor PHARRELL WILLIAMS Sko Bright Gul/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. 0 in the 400, and Sam Hendricks set a pole vault meet record by clearing the bar at 5.92. Hendricks used the ideal conditions on a warm, still evening in Lausanne to go seven centimeters above his Olympic height.Two Olympic silver medalists dueled in the womens 3,000: Genzebe Dibaba, the 1,500 runner-up from Ethiopia, won in 8:31.84 after kicking hard at the bell to leave Olympic 5,000 runner-up Hellen Obiri of Kenya trailing in second.Rio silver medalists who also won in Lausanne were Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar, clearing 2.35 at the third attempt in the high jump, and Francine Niyonsaba of Burundi in the womens 800. Niyonsaba timed 1:57.71 as Olympic champion Caster Semenya of South Africa skipped the meet. Semenya plans to run at Zurich next Thursday.In the shot put, 2012 Olympic champion Valerie Adams of New Zealand reversed Rio placings with gold medalist Michelle Carter of the U.S., extending her lead with a final effort at 19.94 meters.Olympic triple jump champion Caterine Ibarguen won with a leap of 14.76, though long jump gold medalist Tianna Bartoletta of the U.S. placed only fifth.Amid Russias doping scandal, its only eligible entry in Olympic track and field was its only competitor in Lausanne: with Darya Klishina finishing third in the long jump won by Olympic bronze medalist Ivana Spanovic of Serbia at 6.83.Mentally this has been a very tough season, Klishina said. I hope the situation with Russia is sorted soon and we athletes just have to focus on performing.The Diamond League series continues in Paris on Saturday. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaCheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
