The Jets and Washington Capitals engaged in a good old Southeast Division end-to-end wide-open affair, something Jets fans wont see much of anymore with the Jets now in the tighter-checking Western Conference. Michael Wacha Jersey . After Mondays comments by Coach Claude Noel that its work first and skill second, and that more “A” games are needed, the Jets responded with a 47-shot effort. If not for terrific goaltending by Braden Holtby the Jets would have had two points in regulation. The players said the right things in the morning and went out and performed. Here are some of the comments after the morning skate. “Each guy has to be a difference maker.” - Olli Jokinen “Make yourself accountable first” – Zach Bogosian “React the right way. A lot of us can say we havent been good enough.” – Andrew Ladd Captain Ladd had three assists in the game on a line with Bryan Little (two goals, five on the season) and Devin Setoguchi. Littles first goal was shorthanded, the Jets first of the season and tied the game at one. The second period featured six goals (three apiece) after a scoreless first period. The Jets had three second period goals in the previous nine games. Mikhail Grabovski had opened the scoring, the eighth time in 10 games the Jets have surrendered the games first goal. Grant Clitsome with his first gave the Jets the lead before two by Alex Ovechkin regained the lead for Washington. Blake Wheeler on a line with Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele tied it with 39 seconds left in the period. Overall, the Jets fired 19 shots at Holtby in the second period. Washington again took the lead early in the third on a power play goal by Troy Brouwer. The Caps have the NHLs best power play and went 1-for-5 in the game. The Jets were 0-for-3 and have now gone five straight games without a power play goal after scoring one in each of the first five games. Little tied the game at 7:04, overtime did not produce a winner and it was off to the shootout. The Jets won a seven-round shootout Friday against St. Louis, but unlike Friday - when Ondrej Pavelec stopped the last five Blues shooters - tonight it was the last four Washington shooters scoring to give the Caps the win in a six-round shootout. Martin Erat scored the deciding goal. For the Jets, in order, it was Wheeler (miss), Little (miss), Ladd (goal), Jokinen (goal), Setoguchi (goal), Kane (miss). It was Ladds fourth career three-assist game, while Ovechkin continues to feast on this franchise with 40 goals and 80 points in 54 games. From a Jets standpoint maybe its a good thing they only see him twice a year now. Kane led the Jets in ice time with a career-high 28:41. He had six shots on goal, two blocked and six that missed the net. Little also had six shots on goal and won 16 of 23 face-offs. Scheifele was 57 per cent in the face-off circle and probably had his best game as a pro. Michal Frolik also had six shots on goal. Much of the post-game talk had to do with missed opportunities. Over and above the 47 shots, the Jets had at least another 10 Grade-A chances that missed the net. Ladd talked about not finishing, Kane about creating a lot of scoring opportunities, Wheeler about the positives outweighing the negatives. Coach Noel followed his players up. “We had a lot of opportunities to go ahead in the game. It would have been good to take advantage of some of those good chances,” Noel said. He liked a lot about the game, from the leadership of Ladd to the physical game his team played. “I liked our line combos, we had good resiliency to keep coming back, we got offense from some people who were frustrated. We got a point and got a lot of better play from a lot of players.” General Manager Kevin Cheveldayoff was a guest on TSN Jets after the first period and talked about needing more consistency from the team. As for the upcoming four-game road trip, he said: “Too often you look at the big picture. You cant win the big picture – you win whats in front of you.” That would be Thursday in Nashville (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The Jets finished the six-game home stand 2-3-1 and are now 4-5-1 on the season. Carlos Martinez Jersey . Inter moved five points behind fourth-place Fiorentina and eight points behind third-place Napoli, which visits relegation-threatened Sassuolo on Sunday. Keith Hernandez Jersey . “The fact that he was willing to do the deal the way we wanted it to be done showed that he wanted me to be a part of something great," Lowry said, noting that Ujiri willingness to sign off on the proposal that both Lowry and his agent presented to the GM was the final straw that convinced him to return. http://www.baseballcardinalsauthority.com/Orlando-Cepeda-Jersey/ . - Vince Wilfork has played only two career games in Kansas City.LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Normally, the San Antonio Spurs like to move the ball around and get everyone touches. On this night they needed a go-to scorer, so coach Gregg Popovich started calling plays for Kawhi Leonard.Last seasons NBA Finals MVP tied his career high with 26 points despite playing with only one good eye, and the Spurs closed with a rush to beat the Los Angeles Clippers 89-85 Monday.Leonard had been away from his teammates for a three-week stretch because of conjunctivitis, a highly contagious infection that has affected his right eye. Still, he pulled down 10 rebounds and gave the defending champions their first lead with 1:44 left.Its just that my vision isnt 100 per cent yet, Leonard said. But Im just playing games trying to get used to it, and hopefully it will just blow past.Tim Duncan added 18 points and 11 rebounds, and Tony Parker scored nine of his 13 in the fourth quarter for the Spurs, who snapped a two-game skid while earning their first road win.It was a grind, Duncan said. Tony didnt play well. I didnt play well. Kawhi really carried us for a while there, made some great plays on defence.San Antonio finished the game on a 14-3 run, giving Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Parker their 500th career victory together. They are second among trios in NBA history to Larry Bird, Kevin McHale and Robert Parish, who won 540 games with the Boston Celtics.The Spurs future, though, belongs to Leonard.Weve got to start giving him the ball, Popovich said. I dont think Tim and Manu are going to play any more than six or seven more years, so somebody else, do something.Blake Griffin led the Clippers with 23 points and 10 rebounds, but committed two consecutive turnovers that led to the Spurs taking their first lead. J.J. Redick added 13 points, and Chris Paul had 12 points and 10 rebounds while just missing his second triple-double of the season with nine assists.They basically gave us a clinic down the stretch of how to close out a game, Paul said.The Clippers led by seven with just under 6 minutes to play before their shooting went cold and Griffins miscues proved costly. They were 4 of 14 in the fourth.Griffin lost the ball, and Leonards fast-break layup gave San Antonio its first lead at 83-82. Boris Diaw then stole the ball from Griffin. Parker missed, but the ball caromed out to the Spurs annd Diaw hit a floater. Dexter Fowler Jersey. Ginobili scored to make it 87-82.We definitely let that win slip away, Griffin said. I had two bad turnovers at a critical time. With all that, we still had a chance to tie it up and force overtime. Its a lesson; weve got to keep fighting.Jamal Crawford got fouled on a 3-pointer and made all three, drawing the Clippers within two.Ginobili missed two free throws with 10 seconds to go and the Clippers called a timeout. New owner Steve Ballmer clenched his fists and bellowed, Lets go! as fans rose to their feet.Paul missed on a driving layup that bounced off the rim and Griffin landed on the floor grabbing the rebound. He called a timeout they didnt have.Youre sitting on the ground with the ball. Youve got to think of something, Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.After a review, the clock was set at 1.4 seconds. Parker missed the technical foul shot, but the Spurs retained possession. Leonard got fouled in the final seconds and made both.I cant imagine when he can really see again, Rivers said. He willed that for them.San Antonio twice got within two in the fourth, both times on free throws by Parker. He made a pair after Paul got called for a foul, although it appeared Parker pushed him down with his hand as the two got tangled on a drive to the basket.This team has been together through battles, so we know the game is not over yet, Leonard said.The Clippers ran off five straight points to increase their lead to 82-75.Both teams went 2 minutes without scoring before Duncan rattled off six straight points as part of the 14-3 run.___TIP INSSpurs: F Tiago Splitter (right calf tightness), G Marco Belinelli (mild groin strain) and G Patty Mills (right shoulder surgery) sat out.
