Penriths generation next have shocked and entertained all comers this NRL season but now face their sternest test - finals footy. Nike Roshe Sale Cheap .The Panthers will climb into sixth with a win over Manly in their last-round fixture at Pepper Stadium on Sunday night however it matters little - they will face Canterbury at ANZ Stadium in week one of the finals regardless.After six wins in their past seven including four on the trot, the black cats are shaping as the competitions dark horse.Most sides dont know what to make of them - given their penchant for second phase play (they lead the league for offloads and third in tackle busts).However their ability to handle finals footy remains an unknown quantity.Of the 17-man squad which will take on the Sea Eagles, just four remain from their last finals appearance against Canterbury in 2014 - Matt Moylan, Dallin Watene-Zelezniak, Josh Mansour and Jeremy Latimore.While the likes of Peter Wallace and Trent Merrin add plenty of experience, their ability to handle sudden death is yet to be seen, especially for the likes of young key-position players Nathan Cleary and Bryce Cartwright.Weve been in pretty good form, last week was a really intense game, it was like a final against the Titans, coach Anthony Griffin said.Weve got to treat tomorrow night like a final because it carries a lot of weight for us.If we can have a really good 80 minutes tomorrow night the players will have had a good month of football which would prepare them well for whats to come.Unless Manly (13th, 8-15) can muster a victory against the Panthers, 2016 will go down as their second-least successful year since 1965 - only behind 2003 when they won just three games.While a summer of soul-searching awaits the Sea Eagles, the Panthers are facing a bright future.I came here with a really open mind and didnt have any expectations, Griffin said.It was a whole new list and for them I was a new coach.It wasnt a matter of where we finished or where we might get to, its just trying to create something we can build on for the future.STATS THAT MATTER* Penrith has won five of its past six matches against Manly, including a 20-point comeback in round 14.* Sixteen of Penriths 23 matches this season have been decided by eight points or less.* Manlys 44 points conceded against Melbourne was its worst defensive performance of the year and the ninth time they have conceded 30 points or more this season.Source: Fox Sports Stats Discount Nike Roshe Shoes . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. Outlet Nike Roshe . "Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http://www.discountnikeroshe.com/ .com) - The Montreal Canadiens will try to halt their longest losing streak of the season when they host the struggling New York Islanders in tonights clash at the Bell Centre. TORONTO -- Sidney Crosby was at his best on one of hockeys biggest stages.Again.Crosby scored once and assisted on both of Brad Marchands goals, including the winner early the third period, to help Canada beat Russia 5-3 on Saturday night in the World Cup of Hockey semifinals.[Crosby] always comes up big in the big games, Marchand said.The Canadians will face the winner of Sundays Sweden-Team Europe game in the best-of-three finals that will start Tuesday night.Crosby opened the scoring at 7:40 into the game on a spectacular sequence, showing he has plenty of energy despite having a brief summer between winning the Stanley Cup and competing in the World Cup.It was short, but exciting, knowing we were coming here, he said.Crosby skated hard into a corner, forcing Alexey Marchenko to give up the puck earlier than he wanted. Dmitry Kulikov ended up with the puck in the left circle, but he didnt have it long because Crosby snatched it away.Crosby made the puck dance on both sides of his stick as he skated across the front of the crease, and as soon as Sergei Bobrovsky went down on his left hip, Crosby backhanded the puck into the net without a Russian player near him.I had a little bit more time than you typically get, Crosby said.Bobrovsky made 16 of his 42 saves in the first period, keeping the Russians in it.Thats why hes one of the best goalies in the world, teammate Alex Ovechkin said. He played unbelievable. When they score, its not his mistake. He gave us a chance.Nikita Kucherov made it 1-all midway through the first, and Evgeny Kuznetsov put Russia ahead 2-1 with 3:36 left in the second.Crosby, a two-time Olympic gold medalist and two-time Stanley Cup champion, made a cross-crease pass to set up Marchand for his tying goal just 1:12 after Russia went ahead.In the dressing room after two periods, Babcock delivered a brief message.Theres no chance they can keep up if we keep doing what were doing, Canada coach Mike?Babcock recalled telling his team.The Russians, and perhaps any other team, may not have much of an opportunity to win against a Crosby-led team with some of the games biggest stars.With a chance to take a pivotal lead in the third, Crosby chose to give up the puck, not shoot it. Nike Roshe Clearance Sale. He deftly dropped a pass to Marchand atop the left circle to assist on the game-winning goal 1:16 into the third.Corey Perry gave Canada a two-goal cushion at 5:48 of the third, and John Tavares made it 4-2 midway through the period.Carey Price made 31 saves for the Canadians. He made some momentum-stunting saves early in the first, but backchecking forwards and poke-checking defensemen made his job relatively easy for much of the night.Russia was not in a position to come back in a game in which it gave up more than twice as many shots as it put on the Price-protected net until pulling their goalie late to add an extra skater in a nothing-to-lose attempt to get back in the game. Artemi Panarin scored with 9 seconds left, making the score look slightly more respectable.The Russians were without one of their top players, Pavel Datsyuk, because of a lower-body injury.As usual in a matchup of NHL superstars, Crosby came out on top against Ovechkin.It looked as if it might end up that way even before the puck dropped.Both captains were called to center ice for a goodwill gesture, pairing them up with young boys on skates holding flags that represented each country.While Crosby put his arm around the youngster next to him, a stone-faced Ovechkin stood with his gloves at his side.Crosby helped the host Canadians crush the Ovechkin-led Russians 7-3 in the quarterfinals of the 2010 Vancouver Games. Four years later, with a chance at redemption at the Winter Olympics in Russia, Ovechkin couldnt do enough to help his team get past the quarterfinals while Crosby and the Canadians earned gold again. Ovechkin is also left waiting and wondering if hell ever hoist the Stanley Cup.Given a chance to help his team and country get a desperately wanted win, Ovechkin didnt have a shot through two periods and finished with just two shots.Maybe he doesnt have enough of luck, Russian coach Oleg Znarok said through an interpreter. Cheap Hoodies From ChinaDiscount NFL Shirts Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Fast Shipping China Jerseys Stitched Jerseys ' ' '
