Skinner said. The last couple of games weve been right t from sxx123's blog

The Heisman race is almost settled, but the debate about how the five finalists translate to the NFL is just beginning. Vincent Trocheck Jersey . Our NFL draft insiders, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, go back and forth on each player -- what they do well, where they can improve and where they could be drafted. Lets dig in.Lamar Jackson, QB, LouisvilleKiper: Lets get this out of the way: I dont view Jackson as an NFL quarterback prospect?at this point. Hes an athlete -- a phenomenal one at that -- playing quarterback, but I havent seen consistent NFL-level passing skills. Jackson has completed only 57.6 percent of his passes this season (54.7 in 2015), and thats a huge red flag for NFL teams. If he cant complete 65 percent of his passes in the ACC, what optimism is there for completing 65 percent of his passes in the NFL?McShay:?I think he has some Michael Vick-type qualities. Jacksons rushing ability is obvious (1,538 yards and 21 TDs on the ground) and he has really good arm strength. He can make any throw you want from a velocity standpoint, but youre right, Mel: Jackson leaves way too many throws on the field right now. (Vick did too, finishing his college career with a 56.0 completion percentage.) Beyond the accuracy issues, the biggest area Jackson needs to improve is in his footwork. Radim Vrbata Jersey . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. Keith Yandle Jersey . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. . Zvonareva, who won the tournament in 2009 and 10, couldnt handle her opponents big groundstrokes in only her third event back after 17 months out with a shoulder injury. Zvonareva made her comeback in January in Shenzhen and played in the Australian Open but lost her first matches at both tournaments. RALEIGH, N.C. -- Michael Leighton is back in the NHL. Gerrard Gallant is out.Leighton but made 31 saves for the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday night in 3-2 victory over Florida that turned out to be coach Gerrard Gallants last with the Panthers.Florida fired coach Gallant after the game, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. Tom Rowe, who was promoted to general manager before the season, will assume the coaching duties, said the source who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasnt announced the moves.Leighton hadnt been in an NHL net in four years and hadnt won in six. He shrugged off a two-goal deficit as his teammates scored three goals in the second period, stopping 31 shots.Jeff Skinner had a goal and an assist to spark the rally, which stopped a two-game losing streak and a six-game slide in the series.Viktor Stalberg and Derek Ryan also scored for Carolina, with Ryan getting his first of the season.Leighton was outstanding, said Carolina coach Bill Peters said, whose team has won five straight home games. Once it was 3-2 he made four or five good saves. He made a great glove save on (Alexsander) Barkov coming across the middle, made a save on a penalty kill on (Aaron) Ekblad coming around the back door. He made some great saves.Cam Ward had started the previous nine games in goal for Carolina. Regular backup goalie Eddie Lack has been on injured reserve under concussion protocol for six days, with Leighton called up from Charlotte of the American Hockey League to serve as backup.Jonathan Marchessault and Ekblad scored for Florida, and Barkov had two assists.Im happy to be back and happy to get a win, Leighton said. I felt better as the game went on. The first two goals were kind of fluky. As a team we knew we had to play better in the second period. We came out flying and that made my job a little easier.Florida goalie James Reimer had 24 saves.Floridas Jaromir Jagr played in his 1,651st NHL game, tying him with Chris Chelios for fifth in NHL history. The 44-year-old Jagr had a first-period assist.Jagr is a game behind former Pittsburgh teammate and formeer Hurricane Mark Recchi for fourth place. Denis Malgin Jersey. The Czech star has 1,127 assists and is eight behind former Hurricane Paul Coffey for fifth on that list.For five minutes we let them come back in the game, Gallant said in his final interview as Florida coach. They scored three goals, and that was disappointing because we played 55 good minutes tonight, but it wasnt good enough.Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal sustained an upper-body injury in the first period and did not return.Florida took a 2-0 lead in the first period, outshooting the Hurricanes 16-9.Marchessault scored at 5:41 on a power play, picking up his 10th of the season when he followed Jagrs shot to beat Leighton. The goal broke Carolinas NHL-best streak of 25 consecutive penalties killed.Ekblad followed at 9:51, with Barkov earning an assist.Stalberg cut the lead in half at 5:21 of the second, beating Reimer glove-side.At 7:12, Skinner tied it on a breakaway, taking a lead pass from Rask and roofing the puck past Reimer glove side. And then at 8:49, Ryan scored his first goal of the season, a power-play marker with the assist from Skinner after Ryan won a faceoff.Its a big win, Skinner said. The last couple of games weve been right there and havent really found the way to get the result. Tonight after the first period we had a good response. We found a way to dig deep and get the result.Game notes Florida alternate captain Jussi Jokinen played in 288 games for the Hurricanes from 2008-13. ... Carolina D Noah Hanifin played in his 100th NHL game. ... Hurricanes LW Brock McGinn (upper body) missed his second straight game, and D Klas Dahlbeck and D Ryan Murphy were healthy scratches. .
