Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork. Leon Durham Jersey Cubs .com) - Tyler Johnson notched a pair of goals, including an insurance marker in the third period, to lead Tampa Bay to a 4-2 decision over Ottawa on Sunday. Victor Hedman contributed a goal and assist with Steven Stamkos picking up the other score for the Lightning, who shook off a loss in Pittsburgh on Friday and won for the fifth time in their last six. Ben Bishop backed his offense with a 20-save effort. Kyle Turris and Mark Stone supplied the scores for the Senators, who have lost four of six with their modest two-game win streak ending. Robin Lehner stopped 26 pucks in defeat. Johnson put the Bolts ahead by a 4-2 count seconds shy of eight minutes to go in the third period. He was left alone in the left circle to take a Nikita Kucherov slap pass and bury it. Lehner was not allowed to leave his net for an extra attacker until the final seconds, and the hosts only tested Bishop with six shots in the final 20 minutes. Turris lit the lamp just 32 seconds after the opening puck drop, on a quick one-timer off a backhand feed by Clarke MacArthur. Hedman beat Lehner high at 3:48 of the second to tie the game, but Stone put the Senators back on top with 7 1/2 minutes gone and seconds after a power play expired. Tampa flipped momentum once more with goals from Johnson and Stamkos 47 seconds apart in the late stages of the frame to head to the second intermission up 3-2. The former saw Johnson creep behind coverage on the left side to whip home a Kucherov dish. On the latter, coming with 3:05 remaining in the period, Stamkos circled the Ottawa net and beat several would-be Senators checkers before sliding a backhander home from the right side. Game Notes Tampa improved to 10-8-3 on the road and will end its three-game trip in Montreal on Tuesday ... Johnson has recorded four multi-goal efforts this season ... Ottawa starts a four-game swing at Philadelphia on Tuesday. Tom Glavine Jersey Braves . The announcement was made by the hall on Friday, March 14.

Ben Zobrist Jersey Cubs .com) - John Wall had 15 points, 12 assists and four steals as the Washington Wizards defeated the New Orleans Pelicans 92-85 on Monday night. https://www.discountjerseysonline.com/bill-madlock-jersey-cubs-226 . Winning more at home probably should be on the list. The Flames look to avoid a fifth defeat in six home games by winning a sixth straight meeting with the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday night.TORONTO - Canada has never been lower on the world soccer ladder and now finds itself looking up at such minnows as St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Haiti, and Antigua and Barbuda.The Canadian men slipped two places to No. 122 in the October rankings released Thursday by FIFA. That tied their August nadir.Perhaps more worrying than being sandwiched between Niger and Liberia, Canada is ranked 16th in CONCACAF regions, which covers North and Central America and the Caribbean.Canada would seem to deserve a better billing oven its performance against Colombia in a friendly last week, losing 1-0 to the No. 3 team in the world.But the FIFA rankings, assembled via a set formula, tell a different story.I think its embarrassing, I think its wrong, Toronto FC midfielder Dwayne de Rosario, Canadas all-time leading scorer, said of the FIFA numbers. When you look at where we are, as a country and where we are in soccer in this country, I think we should be a lot better than that.To be (No.) 16 is a little bit disrespectful. I think theres no way we should be 120-and-something. But we are and we have to accept that.The lower the ranking and the more circuitous Canadas next World Cup qualifying journey will be.Canadas next outing is a tough friendly at No. 56 Panama in November.As a team, were still developing, said the 36-year-old DDe Rosario. David Justice Jersey Braves. Unfortunately we dont have a U.S. pool where we can draw players from all over, playing at high levels and top levels ... We still have unattached guys playing and guys that are playing for clubs that arent really getting a lot of minutes. Its difficult.I think what Benito (Floro) has done with what he has has been good. We saw a resilient Canadian side compete against a very good Colombia team, a full Colombia team and it wasnt even our full Canadian team. But at the end of the day we lost ....Hopefully next year come Gold Cup time, we can drop our ranking by getting some wins and push through that tournament.Canadas best ranking was No. 40, achieved in December 1996. Its average ranking is 76.281 since the ratings began in August 1993.Elsewhere in the rankings, Belgium moved into the top four for the first time and former World Cup winner Spain dropped to 10th following a loss to Slovakia in a European Championship qualifier.The top three positions remained the same with World Cup winner Germany first., ahead of runner-up Argentina, then Colombia. Belgium was fourth and the Netherlands fifth.Brazil was sixth, ahead of France, Uruguay, Portugal and Spain, which slipped two places to No. 10.England dropped from 18th to 20th, and the U.S. slipped six places to 23rd.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter.
