(SportsNetwork. Black Bengals Jerseys .com) - The Boston Bruins will try to head into the NHLs Christmas break with consecutive victories on Tuesday when they host the Nashville Predators at TD Garden. The Bruins have won two of three and are coming off Sundays overtime victory against visiting Buffalo. However, Boston hasnt earned two straight wins since a three-game run from Nov. 15-21. The Predators, meanwhile, picked up a third straight victory on Monday night, notching a 5-1 victory in Columbus. Nashville, which also has won five of six, enters Tuesday just two points behind the Chicago Blackhawks for first place in the Central Division. Chicago is also in action tonight, as it hosts the Winnipeg Jets. Tonights combatants met in Nashville last Tuesday and the Predators recorded a 3-2 shootout win over the Bruins to halt a three-game slide in the series. The Bs have dominated the Preds in Boston, going 6-2-0 with a tie in nine all-time encounters at TD Garden. Nashville has lost four straight in Beantown and last picked up a road win against the Bruins on Nov. 28, 2003. Boston pushed its home record this season to 10-6-2 with Sundays 4-3 win over the Sabres. Loui Eriksson scored the game-winning goal at 2:14 of OT to grab the extra point for the Bruins. Eriksson took a touch pass from Milan Lucic through the neutral zone and fought off a defender before firing a shot through the pads of Jhonas Enroth for the win. It was Erikssons seventh goal of the season and his fourth of the last seven games. The Swedish winger also provided the OT winner in last Wednesdays victory in Minnesota. Its always fun to score those important goals, Eriksson said. I dont know why its been that way, but hopefully it continues like that. Dougie Hamilton finished with two goals and an assist, Chris Kelly also scored and Zdeno Chara added two helpers for the Bruins. Tuukka Rask made 25 saves in the win. Boston, which wont play again until Saturdays game in Columbus, expects to go back to Rask tonight. The Bruins No. 1 netminder is 1-0-2 with a 2.55 goals against average in three career games against Nashville. Nashville has a chance to complete a three-game road trip with a perfect record tonight after posting recent wins in Minnesota and Columbus. Mondays lopsided win over the Blue Jackets improved Nashvilles road record to 10-6-1. Pekka Rinne made 30 stops and Nashville broke open the game with three goals in a span of 2:14 early in the third period to down Columbus at Nationwide Arena. Craig Smith scored twice, while Mike Fisher, Colin Wilson and Seth Jones once each for the Predators. It was a good effort by us, Rinne said. Thats the way weve been playing this year. Nothing changed tonight. We played a solid game, and at the end it was nice to have that cushion. The game was scoreless after one period and the Preds grabbed a 2-0 lead on second-period goals by Wilson and Smith. The three-goal burst in the third period pushed the cushion to five goals. With the Predators off until Saturdays home game against Philadelphia, Rinne could get the start on back-to-back nights. He is 3-0-1 with a 2.32 GAA in four career games against the Bruins. Andrew Brown Stitched Jersey . Clevelands manager had just watched his team lose 5-3 to Kansas City, which completed a 2-6 homestand and dropped the Indians 2 1/2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central. Malik Jefferson Stitched Jersey . Cruz set the tone with a two-run homer in the first inning, and Baltimore scored eight times in the eighth to pull away for a 12-3 victory in Game 1. The major league leader with 40 homers during the regular season, Cruz added an RBI single to his early blast off Max Scherzer. http://www.officialbengalsnflauthenticshop.com/ . They were expecting him there all along. The Pacers announced Friday night that George has been cleared "to return to normal basketball activity," a decision made three days after he was concussed in Game 2 of the Indiana-Miami series.(SportsNetwork.com) - The modern-day NFL is a quarterback-driven league but if you take away the games most important position, two players stand above everyone else as the most impactful in the league, Houston defensive lineman J.J. Watt and New England tight end Rob Gronkowski. And its no coincidence that Watt and Gronk, who is preparing for Super Bowl XLIX against Seattle in Glendale, Ariz. on Feb. 1, were the only two unanimous selections to the 2014 All-Pro team. Both of those superstars are matchup nightmares. Down in South Texas, Watt is as versatile as it gets, a player capable of moving up and down the line of scrimmage in an effort to identify lesser offensive linemen. It doesnt matter if you are a guard, tackle or center, if Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel or Watt himself think you are a weak link, youre going to have a 6-foot-6, 300-pound monster, who can somehow bench press a Ford F-150 while staying quicker than a hiccup, in your face. Gronkowski, meanwhile, is the offensive version of Watt, a 6-6, 270-pound traditional Y-back, who can put any linebacker on skates with his pure strength yet still beat them athletically in the passing game. If you try to defend the three-time All-Pro with a defensive back, it becomes a game of basketball where Gronk can use his imposing frame to box out the coverage. Thats why Jeremy Lanes critique of Gronkowski was such as a surprise. I actually dont think hes that good, the Seahawks nickel cornerback said Thursday. Hes OK. OK? A player like Jeremy Lane is OK, Gronkowski is on the fast track to Canton as long as he earns his stripes in the longevity department. You can give Lane credit for adopting the Legion of Boom swagger despite being a junior memberr of pro footballs best defensive backfield but why poke a bear who has better numbers through five NFL seasons than any other tight end in NFL history? The real stars of the Seahawks secondary are of course All-Pro corner Richard Sherman and star safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Youth Bengals Jerseys. And no one talks more trash than Sherman yet even he deflected questions about stopping Gronkowski. I dont know -- Ill be sitting there with popcorn, Sherman said when asked what will happen when Chancellor, the hard-hitting strong safety who is the one who will be dealing with Gronkowski most of the time, and the Pats Pro-Bowler collide. It will be good football though. Dan Quinn, Seattles highly-respected defensive coordinator who is expected to become the next head coach of Atlanta after the Super Bowl, understands what he and his charges are up against. Hes a terrific tight end, Quinn admitted. I think hes a unique guy; the run game, the pass game, the catching radius, and I think at the end of it, just great hands to finish on routes. So when hes up in the air, generally hes strong handed to come down with it so those are a few of the things that impress us about him and why we regard him so highly. Lane didnt get that memo, however. He does have a big body, (but) from what Ive seen on tape, he dont like your hands being put on him, Lane said. So if we put our hands on him and shake him up a little bit, he wont catch that many balls as he should. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, Gronkowski mused when told about Lanes critique. Did it tick you off? a reporter pressed. It may, Gronkowski responded. Anyone want to take bets on what happens if the 190-pound Lane gets his hands on Gronk?
