    导出博客文章(SportsNetwork. Andre Iguodala Jersey .com) - The Tampa Bay Lightning will have to wait until after the Olympic break to get star centerman Steven Stamkos back, but the club hopes to avoid a fourth loss in five games when it hosts the Toronto Maple Leafs without him on Thursday night. Stamkoss teammate, Lightning captain Martin St. Louis, was named as his replacement for Sochi earlier on Thursday. You can listen to all of the action live on TSN Radio 1050 at 7:30pm. There was talk earlier this week that Stamkos would return for Saturdays home game against Detroit, the Lightnings final tilt before the NHL goes on hiatus for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, but on Wednesday it was announced that the sniper has not been cleared for game action by Dr. Ira Gutentag. The decision not only postpones Stamkos return to the Lightning, but also will prevent him from representing Team Canada at the Winter Games. The 23-year-old suffered a fractured tibia in a game against Boston on Nov. 11 and has missed the last 39 games while recovering. Stamkos was tied for the NHL lead in goals (14) and points (23) before the setback. "After reviewing the CT scan this afternoon, Dr. Gutentag made it clear to me and to Steven that the tibia is not completely healed and therefore he should not be participating in game action at any time in the near future," said Steve Yzerman, who is the general manager of the Lightning and the executive director of Team Canada. "Although the doctor was very pleased to this point with the healing process, he explained that the callus surrounding the fracture site is not 100 percent consolidated, and Steven will not be cleared to play in a game until that happens. It was a pretty clear cut decision, no gray areas at all." Stamkos will continue to rehabilitate and is expected to be re-evaluated in 2- to-3 weeks. The Lightning will resume play after the Olympic break on Feb. 27 at Nashville. "Today is obviously very disappointing for me," Stamkos said. "I honestly believe that we did everything possible in order to have my injured leg ready in time for the Olympics, but I realize you cant force healing." St. Louis will be participating at his second Olympics and first since the 2006 Turin Games. The 38-year-old winger has 25 goals and 54 points to lead Tampa this season. The Lightning have performed extremely well without Stamkos in the lineup over the last few months and they enter Thursday in second place in the Atlantic Division. However, Tampas 1-3-0 record over a recent four-game road trip has helped the Leafs and Montreal Canadiens move within three points of the Lightning for the divisions second spot. The top-three teams in each division receive automatic bids to the playoffs. The Lightning downed the Canadiens 2-1 in overtime Saturday in Montreal before losing in regulation Tuesday night at Minnesota. Darcy Kuemper stopped 34 Tampa Bay shots in the Wilds close victory in St. Paul. Valtteri Filppula scored in the loss and Ben Bishop made 24 saves for the Lightning. "We worked harder (than the last game) we just didnt work smarter," Tampa Bay head coach Jon Cooper said. "That was a big problem." The Lightning fell to 16-13-2 as the guest after its recent trip, but will play their final two games before the break at Tampa Bay Times Forum, where they are 16-6-3 this season. The Maple Leafs will try to rebound on Thursday after having a three-game winning streak halted with Tuesdays 4-1 loss at Florida. David Clarkson provided the lone goal for Toronto, while Jonathan Bernier allowed three goals on 47 shots in the setback. "The word to describe it is, we didnt have anything going except one person in the lineup is outstanding for our hockey club and that was our goaltender," Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle. "We didnt seem to have any jump or passion to play the game, and its kind of mind-boggling right now." After completing its two-game tour of the Sunshine State tonight, the Leafs will complete their pre-Olympic schedule on home ice when they host Vancouver on Saturday. Toronto is 20-10-1 as the home team this season compared to a sub-par 10-12-5 mark as the guest. The Leafs recorded a 3-2 regulation win over the visiting Lightning on Jan. 28, as Bernier stopped 40-of-42 shots and Nazem Kadri provided two goals for Toronto. It was the first of four scheduled meetings between the clubs this season and it was Torontos sixth win in the last eight meetings against the Bolts. The Lightning have won two straight and five of the last seven meetings in Central Florida. Draymond Green Jersey .

Wilt Chamberlain Jersey . LOUIS -- The St.Winnipeg Jets 3 Anaheim Ducks 2 (Jets 22-23-5, 11-13-1 home) – The loss was the first regulation home loss of the year for the Ducks. Meanwhile, the Jets extended their winning streak to four and remain perfect under Paul Maurice. Its the Jets second four-game winning streak of the season, the other coming in mid-November. The Ducks are now 20-1-2 on home ice this season, and had a 10-game home winning streak going into the game. With a power play goal 3:59 into the first period as the Ducks jumped out to a 10-0 shot advantage. But 1:20 later, Blake Wheeler with his team leading 18th tied it on the Jets first shot on goal, with assists to Mark Scheifele and Evander Kane. Kane was back in the lineup after missing the last four with a hand injury. It was Kanes 300th NHL game. Wheeler extended his point streak to four games (2-4-6), Scheifele extended his to four (2-3-5). The goal came off the rush with Wheeler beating Jonas Hiller high glove with a quick wrist shot. At 18:36 the Jets took the lead as Andrew Ladd (11th) banged home the rebound off a Jacob Trouba shot, with Bryan Little also picking up an assist to extend his point streak to five. Shots in the first ended up 15-7 in favour of the Ducks. The only goal of the second period was a shorthanded goal by Kane, his second short-handed goal of the year and his 15th goal overall. Kane scored off the rush on a play that started in the Jets end, beating and chasing Hiller with another shot high glove side. Little picked up another assist and is 2-6-8 over the past five games. It was his 10th multi point game of the year, Kanes sixth.? Shots in the second were 11-6 Only one goal in the third with Nick Bonino scoring at 10:18 to make it a one goal game, but that is the way it ended. Shots in thee third were 16-8 Anaheim. Kevon Looney Jersey. At the end of the night Ondrej Pavelec had stopped 40 of 42 and the Jets had their win. In total the Ducks directed 94 shots at Pavelec who was terrific in picking up his fourth straight win in his sixth straight start. The Jets blocked 36 shots while the Ducks missed the net with another 16. A total of 15 Jets blocked at least one shot, with Toby Enstrom leading the way with five, Mark Stuart and Trouba with four each. Trouba is now 3-1-4 in the last three games. Zach Bogosian led in ice time at 25:56, as he and Enstrom did a great job shutting down Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf.? Wheeler is now 3-5-8 in the last seven games, Scheifele 3-5-8 in the last seven and 7-12-19 in the last 21. Pavelec ties his season high four game win streak. The Jets penalty kill was key in the win going four for four.? “They are a very, very good team,” stated Coach Paul Maurice post-game. “They expose teams weaknesses, and not just our team. I was impressed with our willingness, our character, a big PK in the third, holding the lead late, and our goalie was a big part of all that.” The Jets were a very emotional group as the game ended, knowing they had just beaten the NHLs number one team. “This is a confidence builder,” Maurice said. “The bench was quiet early, we didnt start very good. The bench got loud when they made it 3-2, but again the penalty kill in the third was huge. Blocking shots is a must against that team.” The Jets now meet the number two team in the Pacific Division, the San Jose Sharks, a team that like the Ducks is very good at home. That game goes Thursday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). The Jets are in a stretch of seven on 10 on the road.
