Flames, Wild aim to continue ascent at other’s expense

Calgary Flames coach Glen Gulutzan has heard the notion that the NHL teams in playoff position on (American) Thanksgiving are generally the ones that make the playoffs five months later.

With two wins in a row under his belt to move his team back into a playoff position, Gulutzan likes the direction the Flames are headed even with more than half of the season to go.

Still, after winning in overtime in Montreal and getting a 4-2 home victory versus the Vancouver Canucks in their last outing, Gulutzan knows there’s little breathing room for the Flames (16-12-2) with the standings changing every day.

Sunday night’s 4-3 victory came after the Wild built a 3-0 lead on San Jose, only to see it slip away before Nino Niederreiter’s overtime winner sealed it. Backup goalie Alex Stalock got the start in the place where his NHL career began, and had 31 saves.

While Minnesota has been running into penalty trouble recently, and it is still without left winger Zach Parise and defenseman Jared Spurgeon due to injury. Top blue-liner Ryan Suter has been picking up extra time on the ice to fill any gaps.

“Thirty minutes, 30 minutes, 30 minutes,” Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said, rattling off Suter’s normal time on ice during each game of the California trip. “Smart playing, even lately he’s been a little but more aggressive offensively and still getting back (on defense).”

Suter was indeed the catalyst on Oct. 18 in Calgary when these teams had their initial meeting of the season. Minnesota notched a 4-2 win with Suter netting a goal and two assists.

The Jaguars are giving us all a good look at how you can win without much from the quarterback position.

Hart has returned home to a wrestling ring, and his indie appearances are accumulating as he regains trust and credibility.

“Wrestling is the greatest sport on the planet,” said Hart. “When you walk away from wrestling, when it’s done right, and that feeling you feel is something you’ll never feel from any other sport in the world.

“All I do now is eat, sleep, and train. And take care of my cats.”

Blake Bortles currently ranks 24th in pass attempts, and has averaged just 22 attempts in Jacksonville’s three wins. He’s hit on 60% of his throws in just one of his team’s five games, and opponents are well aware that the key is to put the ball in his hands.

“They’re running the ball well with easy play-action passes off it,” said one defensive coach who faced the Jaguars in September. “They’ll struggle to win if he has to score in the two-minute drill. He still doesn’t read coverage that well, and panics against five-man pressure and tight coverage.”

Charles Clay, TE, Buffalo Bills, knee: Clay underwent arthroscopic surgery to address a meniscal tear in his left knee after injuring it in Week 5 and remains on the road to recovery.

To be fair to Aho, he had only five assists at the end of October last season, which is precisely what he has now. On the other hand, he has played two more games this October and more than three minutes of additional ice time per contest, which makes his stats this season a little more troubling. The Hurricanes’ attack is going to get things going at some point, but for now, your roster would be better served by one of the aforementioned targets.

“I felt like Texas had everything those [other] schools had to offer, but all in one,” he said.

Telyse adopted the 13-year-old half brothers in 2008 and 2009, respectively.

A tour guide, as well, to the excitement that surrounds the program. In Schilling’s four years in Westwood, he would go out to lunch nearly every day with Alford and the UCLA staff. They’d go on campus or close to it, but Schilling can’t recall a single time anyone asked for an autograph or a picture. “Now, if we have a kid on an unofficial visit?” he says. “Shoot, there’s pictures already online. It’s just a different thing.”

How to use something to make you a better person, or to think positive about it or to take the better route because of it, is what I think I can do more than anything.”

When Zaevion was three, a man fired 16 bullets into their home in the 2800 block of 17th Avenue South, with one striking and later killing Johanna Hollis, Zaevion’s mother, while she held him in her arms.

“My mom was sitting in the chair. She got up and ran,” Hollis’ eldest daughter told the Pioneer Press in 2008. “She had her son in her hand, the 3-year-old, and put all the babies in the kitchen, and when she was standing by the doorway, the bullet grazed my cousin in the face and hit my mom in her artery.”

Her messages still ring loudly in her son’s ears, especially the one about her being his story. This wasn’t the story Prescott wanted, but he’s come to understand that he can serve another purpose beyond raising cancer awareness and education—a beacon for others who have also lost loved ones, and may not be sure if or how they can move forward.

So rather than watch Kizer go into the kind of rut in which he spent most of his last year at Notre Dame, they figured the best thing to do was give him a breather and let him evaluate the good and bad of the beginning of his NFL career.
