Post Sturridge, give him free rein, take the shackles off and let
PHILADELPHIA - The Los Angeles Kings improved their play after blowing a two-goal lead on the road. Jabrill Peppers Browns Jersey . A little experience goes a long way. Dwight King scored a tiebreaking goal midway through the third period, leading the Kings to a 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night. Jeff Carter and Justin Williams scored in the second for the Kings, who won their third straight and 11th in 14 games while remaining in third place in the Pacific Division. Matt Read and Jakub Voracek had Philadelphias goals. The Flyers had won five in a row, but they dropped to 12-3-1 in their last 16 games while falling to third place in the Metropolitan Division, one point behind the Rangers. Los Angeles had a 2-0 lead entering the final period, but Philadelphia tied it at 2 before Kings winning score with 9:24 remaining. "Weve been a team thats played together for a lot of years and have been through a lot, so were a mentally strong team," Kings centre Mike Richards said. "We can battle back after that." The winning goal started with a Flyers turnover just outside their zone. Slava Voynov raced down the right side, creating a 2-on-1 with King. King took Voynovs perfectly placed cross-ice pass and beat Ray Emery high on the stick side on a forehand from close range. "It settled our game back to where it needed to be and pushed their game down a level," Kings captain Dustin Brown said. Carter opened the scoring 1:49 into the second period with a wrist shot from the left circle. Alec Martinez took the initial shot from the point, and it deflected off the skate of defenceman Mark Streit and right to Carter. It looked as if Vincent Lecavalier had tied it a minute later, but his shot to a wide-open net went off the right post, then the crossbar and finally the left post. The goal light went on and the arena horn blared signalling a goal, but officials never stopped play. The officials no-goal ruling was later upheld by replay. Williams then scored with 2:31 remaining in the period when he finished a backhander after Emery gave up a bad rebound. The Kings also had a goal disallowed in the period when Martinezs apparent tally was waved off because Carter cross-checked Kimmo Timonen in front of Emery just prior to Martinezs shot. Los Angeles dominated the period, outshooting Philadelphia 20-9. Philadelphia pulled within a goal just 29 seconds into the third period when Read was credited for a score when the puck deflected off the skate of defenceman Jake Muzzin. Voracek provided the equalizer with 11:42 remaining in the third period when he deflected home Scott Hartnells shot from the point after the Kings turned it over in their zone. But Kings goal was too much for Philadelphia to overcome. "We played a good road game," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. "We need the points, just like they do. We knew were coming into a tough place and we played good. Were just trying to make the playoffs." So are the Flyers, who are at the Rangers on Wednesday. Coach Craig Berube will be looking for a better effort than he saw in the opening two periods against the Kings. "For the first 40 minutes, we didnt compete hard enough," Berube said. "We let them outwork us. That was the difference in the game." Emery started in place of Steve Mason. It was just the third start and fourth appearance for Emery in the last 18 games. Emery was sidelined for five of those games with a lower body injury suffered Feb. 27 against San Jose. He finished with 38 saves. Jonathan Quick made 30 saves for Los Angeles. Carter and Richards, both former Flyers, were booed every time they touched the puck in the first period. The duo, who helped the Kings win the Stanley Cup in 2012, were traded after the 2011 season. Carter was playing against his former club in Philadelphia for the first time. Williams also is a former Flyer. NOTES: The teams split the regular-season series, with Philadelphia winning 2-0 at Los Angeles on Feb. 1. ... Sutter coached Berube in Calgary. ... Philadelphia RW Steve Downie didnt dress after suffering an upper-body injury in Saturdays 4-1 win over St. Louis. Tye McGinn was recalled from Adirondack of the AHL. ... Kings captain Dustin Brown didnt show any ill effects of a chest injury that forced him to leave Saturdays 4-0 win at Florida. ... Los Angeles improved to 24-1 when leading after the second period. David Njoku Browns Jersey .A caravan greeted the former Boston Red Sox pitcher at the airport and took him to a public park in Santo Domingo, where a crowd lined a 19-mile stretch of highway to catch a glimpse of him.Once at the park, Martinez went on stage accompanied by players David Ortiz and Robinson Cano as merengue music played and fireworks lit up the sky. Zane Gonzalez Youth Jersey .com) - The Toronto Blue Jays will look to snap a three-game skid Friday night when they continue their road trip in the opener of a three-game set against the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park. . Mika Zibanejad and Jason Spezza scored in the shootout to lead the Ottawa Senators to a 2-1 victory over Nashville on Saturday night.Wayne Rooney should play as an out-and-out striker for England and not as a midfielder, according to Paul Lambert and Steve Sidwell. The England captain was booed during Englands 2-0 win over Malta on Saturday after being picked in central midfield by interim boss Gareth Southgate, who preferred Daniel Sturridge up front with Dele Alli in the hole behind him.Rooneys place in the starting XI is now being seriously questioned ahead of Tuesdays World Cup qualifier in Slovenia. Gareth Southgate has a big decision to make about Rooney Lambert, the former Borussia Dortmund midfielder and Aston Villa boss, says Southgate should stick with the Manchester United stalwart.Its a build-up of pressure, he told Sky Sports News HQs Morning View. The easier decision is to go with the same team which beat Malta. Charlie Wyett says Rooney should leave Manchester United for a club that will play him in midfield, a move he says would benefit his England career I think theres a clamour about Wayne Rooney at the Euros - it wasnt all Rooneys fault at the Euros. I think its really harsh whats happening to him at the moment.Hes a brilliant footballer. Being captain of England is a great honour for him. He doesnt moan about where hes playing. I still think hes a better striker than midfielder. Rooney was booed by fans at Wembley If he was in Germany he would be put up there on a pedestal. Larry Ogunjobi Browns Jersey. And here we vilify him.Brighton midfielder Sidwell believes Rooney should replace Sturridge and lead the line.This is the first time in his career when his position is being scrutinised, he said. He is more of a natural No 10, competing against the likes of Sturridge and Jamie Vardy. With Wayne, the standards he has set have been phenomenal. Hes been performing just below that - but he wasnt that bad against Malta. Danny Higginbotham says Gareth Southgate has a difficult decision to make regarding Rooney His best position is further up the pitch. I would play him instead of Sturridge, give him free rein, take the shackles off and let him be the spearhead.He can play in a three behind a striker, of course he can. Everyones jumping on his back. Lets just get behind him. People booing him…its not good for him or the team. Rooney should replace Daniel Sturridge says Steve Sidwell This squad is a young squad and after the summer they are frail and a bit low on confidence. They need someone like Wayne Rooney in the dressing room and on the pitch to get them going.
