CALGARY - Rookie Johnny Gaudreau has been the talk of the town in Calgary lately, but on Monday night veteran Jiri Hudler showed that he is no slouch either when it comes to producing offence. Anthony Rendon Jersey .Hudler had a pair of beautiful set-ups as the Flames scored twice in the first period and then hung on for a 2-1 victory over Los Angeles— Calgarys third straight victory and second against the Kings in a week.Its huge. Theyre in our conference and theyre Stanley Cup champs, said Hudler. Theyve got a big, physical team. The last game in their building was a comeback and we stuck with it tonight. Its great points for us.Curtis Glencross and Markus Granlund had the goals for Calgary (20-15-3), which has won three straight games since a seven-game losing skid.Tyler Toffoli scored for Los Angeles (18-12-7), which kicked off a three-game road trip through Western Canada that continues Tuesday night in Edmonton.His hockey sense is unbelievable, Calgary coach Bob Hartley said about Hudler. He basically set up Granny and Glenny to open nets. Thats the hockey sense, thats the vision, that he has. Hes a great passer.Calgary took a 1-0 lead at 12:13 of the first period on the eighth goal of the season for Glencross.Carrying the puck with speed into the Kings end, Hudler curled sharply towards the sideboards, drawing lone defenceman Jake Muzzin towards him. With the middle of the ice opened up, he slid a perfect pass to Glencross racing in all alone and he wristed a shot into the top corner on Jonathan Quick.There was a lot of open ice and I was thinking about going for a change but seeing Jiri going in, I just bolted up the ice and it worked out, said Glencross, who has eight goals on the year. Havent gotten too many of those this year where youre coming down the slot and you have that opportunity. Hopefully they keep on coming.The Flames made it 2-0 just over a minute later on another pretty goal.Skating down the wing, Gaudreau made a nice play to evade defenceman Matt Greene at the Los Angeles blue-line, then drew the Kings other defenceman Alec Martinez to the ice before saucering a pass across to Hudler. The instant the puck landed on Hudlers stick, he sent a touch pass back into the slot where he buried his fifth goal with Quick fooled and caught out of position.Great play by Johnny and Huds and I had an empty net. That was an easy goal for me, said Granlund. We think the same way so its fun to play with those guys.Hudlers two assists gives him 36 points on the season (13 goals, 23 assists). He moves ahead of Mark Giordano into the team scoring lead.With the win, the Flames pull even with Los Angeles, San Jose and Vancouver in the Pacific Division. However, all three teams hold games in hand.We really didnt start pushing until the latter half of the second, and the third period we dominated, said Kings defenceman Drew Doughty. The reason why we lost was we had two quick lapses in the first period and they scored on them and we had to battle back from there on out.Trailing 2-0, the Kings got a big goal in the final minute of the second period. Toffoli scored on a breakaway after being sent in by Dustin Brown.Toffoli had another great chance from the side of the net with less than 10 seconds to go in the second but was robbed by Hiller, who jabbed out his pad to deny the Kings leading scorer.I tried to get it upstairs, but it was kind of rolling, said Toffoli. If I put that in there its a totally different ending to the game.Hartley agreed that was a key moment in the game.That definitely would have put us on our heels and probably would have caused lots of damage. We retreated back with a one-goal lead and I thought in the third, we skated better, said Hartley.Jonas Hiller was at his best in the third and he had to be as the Kings pressed for the tying goal.The pressure intensified in the late going and just before the buzzer, Hiller robbed Dwight King from 10 feet out.He was the difference in tonights game. He came up with some huge saves at the right time, and you need this, especially when youre playing the defending Stanley Cup champs, said Hartley. We asked the boys this morning, we said, We cant afford any passengers. We got a great game from everyone and our best player was our goalie.Hiller finished the night with 26 saves to improve to 12-10-2. After giving up two or more goals in 15 straight starts, the Swiss goaltender has given up two goals total in his last two games.We already gave them some momentum at the end of the second and were lucky we got away with the one-goal lead and found a way. I think everybody was working hard, sacrificing, blocking shots, doing everything. It wasnt always pretty, but we found a way Hiller said.Quick had 13 stops in falling to 15-9-6.Notes: Los Angeles forward Marian Gaborik (flu-like symptoms) did not play. He is on a six-game scoring streak (7-3-10). Taking his spot was Jordan Nolan, a healthy scratch the past eight games... On defence for the Kings, Jeff Schultz made his season debut in place of Brayden McNabb... Flames centre Mikael Backlund is getting closer to returning. On Monday, he practised with the team in a non-contact jersey. Hes missed 27 games since having abdominal surgery. Adam Lind Jersey . The Canadian skicross racer appeared to have the bronze medal locked up in the mens final at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, only to wipe out while trying to make a pass in the biggest moment of his career. Gio Gonzalez Jersey . Last years runner-up, Sara Errani, also reached the last eight in straight sets. Flipkens converted all four of her break points against Meusburger, and the third-seeded Errani broke Karin Knapps serve five times to win their all-Italian match 6-4, 6-3. http://www.baseballnationalsauthority.com/Sean-Doolittle-Jersey/ . Gustafsson controlled the first round after getting top position on a throw, and came out much more forcefully in the second, buckling Manuwa with a Muay Thai knee, and finishing him off with strikes on the ground.MELBOURNE, Australia - The Asian Cup kicks off Friday deep in Australias sporting heartland, where the Socceroos will attempt to win the continental championship for the first time.It would have been inconceivable a decade ago. Geographically, of course, Australia is a separate continent. In football terms, though, Australia became part of the Asian Football Confederation in 2006, leaving Oceania in pursuit of tougher competition between World Cups.The Australians open against Kuwait in Melbourne, the first of 32 matches in the 16-team tournament. Defending champion Japan waits until Monday to take on a Palestinian team that qualified through a second-tier tournament, while other leading contenders Iran and South Korea are in action of a hectic opening weekend.Its the biggest football tournament ever staged in Australia, generating interest across the vast and densely populated Asian continent that extends from the Far East all the way west to Saudi Arabia.Yet the Australian team faces competition for the hearts and minds of the public not just from the foreign teams featuring big-name stars such as Japanese pair Keisuke Honda and Shinji Kagawa.Its still cricket season Down Under, with a test match between Australia and India ongoing in Sydney, and the international tennis season is just underway with tournaments on opposite sides of the country in Brisbane and Perth. The Australian Open, the first Grand Slam event of season, starts Jan. 19 at Melbourne Park, a short walk from where some of the Asian Cup matches are being staged.In a nation where football has always resided in the shadows of other sports, the staging of the Asian Cup could be a seminal moment for the sport in Australia.Tim Cahill, the most recognizable footballer from Australia and a star at the World Cup in Brazil, said the Asian Cup will affect football in Australia in a way that can never be affected in any sport ... this is our chance, this can be it.Ange Postecoglou was appointed late in 2013 with a mandate to harness and enhance Australias attacking style, yet the team has slipped in the rankings under his watch despite winning wide accolades for the system the Socceroos deployed in narrow group stage losses to Chile and Netherllands at the World Cup. Bryce Harper Jersey. .The World Cup on the whole was a downer for Asian teams, with only Iran earning a point — and that resulting almost entirely on its strong defence.Japan, aiming to the first five-time winner of the Asian Cup, is the favourite again —four years after beating Australia in the final at Qatar 2011.But the Blue Samurai squad is in a transition period, and coach Javier Aguirre is one of dozens of people under investigation by Spanish authorities amid fixing allegations in a league club game in 2011. Aguirre denies the allegations, and has vowed that the investigation wont be a distraction for him or his team.Japan and Milan forward Honda doesnt like the favouritism tag.That doesnt make sense because we are expecting some very difficult games at the Asian Cup, Honda said Thursday. Our opponents, all teams, are strong. Many teams want to beat us. Security (complacency) is the great enemy.Japanese goalkeeper Eiji Kawasima is expecting a lot from the players in front of him.Our minimum aim is to win the Asian Cup, we have to get victory, he said. We have to forget about the 2011 victory if we want to overcome the challenge of winning here.All 16 teams will have played their first matches by Monday. On Saturday, Uzbekistan takes on North Korea in Sydney, South Korea plays Oman in Canberra and Saudi Arabia faces China in Brisbane.On Sunday, the United Arab Emirates take on Qatar in Newcastle and Iran plays Bahrain in Melbourne. Jordan plays Iraq at Brisbane on Monday after Japan plays the Palestinians in Newcastle, completing the first set of matches.On Thursday, the Socceroos went through a mostly closed final training session for the match against an underdog Kuwaiti side ranked 15th among Asian nations. Although it won the Asian Cup in 1980, Kuwait finished 14th in 2011.Postecoglou was aware that Kuwait, like many Asian teams, will adopt a defensive mindset. But he doesnt plan to have the Australians take the same approach.It will be a step in the right direction in terms of results, but no, I wont be happy if we win ugly, and the players know that, Postecoglou said. Its not just about playing exciting, attacking football, its about playing winning football.
