VANCOUVER - A weak second period, marred by a soft goal on Eddie Lack, was all the Vancouver Canucks needed to extend their losing streak to five games. Aleksander Barkov Panthers Jersey .Kari Lehtonen stopped 27 shots for his second shutout of the season and the 29th of his career as the Dallas Stars defeated Vancouver 2-0 on Wednesday night.Lack, starting for the first time since Dec. 7 in place of No. 1 goalie Ryan Miller, said Dallas first goal — off a weak backhand shot from Colton Sceviour at 2:53 of the second — helped sway the momentum of the game.Its a weak goal, what else can I say? said Lack, who made 27 saves. I was kind of in between — should I get it with my stick or with my glove? — and it just screwed me.Sceviours goal deflected off the back of Lacks glove and in to give the Stars (12-13-5) the only offence they would need. Antoine Roussel added an empty-net goal with 26 seconds remaining in the third period.I was just trying to throw it out to the front to maybe get a rebound, Sceviour said of his goal. I was fortunate enough to get a bounce and it went in.After a slow first period, Dallas increased its pressure throughout the second, forcing 11 saves out of Lack, while Vancouver could only muster four shots — including a clear breakaway from Alexandre Burrows that Lehtonen denied.Vancouver (18-11-2), which hasnt scored a goal on the man advantage since a victory over the Capitals on Dec. 2, were blanked on the night as the Stars goalie made some key saves throughout the game.We got to at least get the momentum in our power-play, said Henrik Sedin. That didnt happen in the second, I think thats what turned the momentum around for them.The Canucks best chances came in the first and third periods as they peppered Lehtonens goal with shots.A Chris Higgins breakaway in the first period was denied by the Stars netminder.I thought our third period was good, created stuff on the last power play but you know our second period wasnt a good period for us and it probably cost us the game, said head coach Willie Desjardins.Jannik Hansen had a great chance for Vancouver seconds before the Stars opening goal, stripping Jyrki Jokipakka at the Dallas blue-line before Lehtonen stopped him with a glove save.The Canucks came out stronger in the third period with both Chris Tanev and Linden Vey aiming one-timers at Lehtonen.Lack had to make a couple of big saves to keep his team in it as the period wound down, including a breakaway shot from Curtis McKenzie, which Lack stopped with his pads.Vancouver pulled its goalie with 1:35 left as the Canucks piled on the pressure, but Roussel scored into the empty net with 26 seconds to go.Unlike Saturdays game when the Canucks found themselves down 3-0 after just 6:46 of the first period, they came out stronger Wednesday. Radim Vrbata had the first chance, forcing Lehtonen to make a glove save just 36 seconds into the game before Hansen hit the side of the net a few moments later.Lack was largely left alone for the first period as the Stars only managed five shots, but Tyler Seguin rang a shot off the crossbar before Jamie Benn had a good look from the slot that the Canucks goalie snagged with his glove.Theres still bumps in our road where we know if they get momentum it takes it away so we got to find ways to be better every shift, said Desjardins.Notes: The Canucks have two games left on a four-game homestand including Saturday against the Calgary Flames. ... Dallas has two remaining games on its three-game road trip, playing Friday against the Flames. ... Tom Sestito was a scratch for the Canucks. ... The Canucks last home win against Dallas came on March 30, 2012. Henrik Borgstrom Panthers Jersey .

Reto Berra Panthers Jersey Authentic . Adam Lind provided the power and rookie starter Marcus Stroman had the best start of his young career as the Blue Jays dumped the Yankees 8-3 at Rogers Centre. Stroman, making his fifth start for Toronto, allowed one earned run and three hits over a career-high eight innings. http://www.hockeypanthersauthority.com/ . The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks.KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Didier Defago of Switzerland edged Bode Miller by 0.05 seconds to win a World Cup super-G on Sunday, and Alexis Pinturault of France won the super-combined event for his sixth career victory. With snow falling on a shortened Streifalm course, Defago was the next racer after Miller and timed 1 minute, 10.38 seconds for his first victory since a downhill in Bormio, Italy, in December 2011. "The course suits me," said Defago, the 2010 Olympic champion who won the classic Hahnenkamm downhill five years ago. "I was disappointed we had only one training run this week. I love this course. I fully used my chances today." Overall World Cup leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway and Max Franz of Austria shared third, 0.15 off the lead. The race also counted as the first portion of the super-combined, which added the results of the super-G and a slalom run. Pinturault posted the fastest time in the floodlit slalom to finish in an aggregate time of 2 minutes, 2.79 seconds. Ted Ligety of the United States was 0.44 back in second, and defending overall champion Marcel Hirscher of Austria was third, 1.47 behind. "Its a great result," Pinturault said. "My confidence is building and my skiing gets better and better. Thats very positive for the Olympics." Miller, who led the competition after the super-G as speed specialist Defago skipped the slalom, posted the third-fastest time in slalom but was disqualified for straddling a gate. Svindal of Norway also failed to finish the slalom, leaving Hirscher the chance to close the gap in the overall standings to 102 points. The next event is the night slalom in Schladming, where Svindal wont compete. Hirscher was 1.53 off the lead after the super-G but attacked his slalom throughout to make the podium. "I couldnt risk more than Ive done," said Hirscher, who failed the finish the regular slalom event Friday. "These 60 points are now very important for me." Ligety was 0.94 back in 31st after the super-G, but put in an aggressive slalom run that was unmatched until Pinturault came down. "My slalom run was ok, it was sure better than in the classic slalom race," Ligety said. "Alexis is a great slalom skier so its not too bad to be after him." Earlier Sunday, organizers delayed the super-G for three hours due to snowfall and lowered the start because of strong winds. Defago missed the season following his Olympic title after tearing ligaments in his left knee. He hadnt beeen on a World Cup podium since his win in Bormio. Vincent Trocheck Panthers Jersey. However, getting top-10s in three downhills this season, including last week in Wengen and Saturday in Kitzbuehel, were signs of a return to form with the Sochi Olympics looming. "Its yet unclear if I am really going to retire," said the 36-year-old Defago, who had earlier hinted this Olympic season might be his last. "When I see I can still race this good then it becomes a difficult decision." Miller missed out on a possible win for a second straight day after mistakes he called "heartbreaking" and "painful" saw him come third in the downhill. He had targeted that race to earn his first World Cup win since taking the downhill in Beaver Creek in 2011. Miller said the anger from the day before helped him in the super-G. Starting 23rd, he was clean throughout and beat the times from the seasons leading super-G racers. "You use the emotions if you can, if you think thats beneficial," Miller said. "I know that on a short course, skiing really aggressive, really angry, can be helpful because its so really close. When it comes down to five-hundreds ... a little bit of extra aggression can make the difference. I definitely brought that in there and thats just a usable emotion." Miller added that he "skied really well. I didnt leave a whole lot out there. Second place is also fine. Both results are fine, I am just much happier with my skiing today." Miller considered himself unlucky having to start right after a scheduled TV commercial interruption of the race. "It doesnt help to have the TV break right before you," Miller said. "Three minutes of nobody skiing the actual track. And the snow, its not very much but its enough to slow things down a little bit." American teammate Travis Ganong trailed by 0.30 in joint sixth for his career-best result in super-G. "My skiing is in a really good spot right now," said Ganong, a day after finishing seventh in the downhill. "You get to the point where youve done so many races, you turn your brain off and you just ski and have fun. Most races Ive done in the past, Ive been over-thinking things. This run I just forgot about everything just relaxed and skied and had fun." Ganong later missed a gate in the slalom and didnt finish the super-combined event.
