Then Patrick carried that group of men underneath him

LOS ANGELES -- Michael Cammalleri has done his best to keep his Calgary Flames teammates going in the right direction despite a youthful roster and a host of injuries. Fake Vans Online . Saturday night, he was in the right spot at just the right time. Cammalleri scored his 10th goal of the season with 23 seconds remaining, and the Flames pulled out a 2-1 victory over the Los Angeles Kings. Eight of Calgarys nine wins have been by one goal, including shootout victories over Winnipeg and Florida. "The wins havent been as frequent for us as we would have liked, for sure," said Cammalleri, the first Calgary player to reach double digits in goals. "We have a lot of respect for a good opponent across the hall, knowing that theyre comfortable knowing how to win those types of games. Were still learning how, so this feels good. It was a special weekend for us because we had our dads here with us." Cammalleri beat Ben Scrivens with a short backhander from the edge of the crease after getting the puck from Mikael Backlund. The veteran centre spent his first five NHL seasons with Los Angeles. "Cammalleri is a killer. Every game that he plays is like a home game for him," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said. Blair Jones had a short-handed goal during a 5-minute penalty kill in the second period for Calgary. Karri Ramo made five of his 21 saves during the Kings long power play, helping the Flames end the Kings club-record streak of 11 consecutive games in which they gained at least one point in the standings. Ramo was 4 1/2 minutes away from his first NHL shutout when Justin Williams tied it with his 200th regular-season goal. He played a carom off the right boards in the neutral zone after a clearing pass by defenceman Jake Muzzin, then carried the puck into the Flames zone and took a 40-foot wrist shot that glanced off defenceman Shane OBriens stick and over Ramos right shoulder. "Sometimes when a team ties it up late in the game like that and you counter with quick momentum, it almost catches them by surprise because they expect the momentum to come their way," Cammalleri said. "We tried to keep aggressive and stay after it and keep making plays, and Backs made a good play to find me in front of the net." Calgary defenceman Ladislav Smid received a boarding major and automatic game misconduct at 14:26 of the second period for shoving Dwight King face-first into the glass deep in the Calgary zone as the Kings forward tried to beat Cammalleri to a loose puck. King went to the bench with a cut near his right eye, and his teammates suddenly had their 5-minute power play. But it backfired on the Kings, as the Flames responded with their fifth short-handed goal of the season. "The funny thing is, when they got that five-minute major, we went to the bench and said: Hey, boys, were going to come out of this one-nothing." Cammalleri said. "You get that feeling sometimes, because sometimes a team gets a five-minute power play and gets a little lackadaisical." Calgary defenceman TJ Brodie tried to slap the puck out of his zone and partially fanned on it, but it had enough momentum to slide into the Kings end and Scrivens fell down chasing it to his left. Paul Byron took possession behind the net and passed it out to Jones as he was knocked down from behind by defenceman Drew Doughty. "I spent a lot of time playing the penalty kill down in Abbottsford (of the AHL). So once I got on the ice, I had to seize the opportunity," Byron said. "I just jumped on the ice for a change and saw that he slipped, so I put pressure on them and saw Jones out of the corner of my eye. I slipped it to him and he put it in the back of the net." Scrivens, who stopped 18 shots, was 5-0-3 with a 1.34 goals-against average and two shutouts in his previous eight starts. But the disappointment of that goal stung him. "Stuff happens. It is a game on ice," Scrivens said. "I was trying to get out there, play the puck and help the defencemen out. That was my plan, but I had an unfortunate break catching an edge and they were fortunate enough to capitalize on it." NOTES: Anze Kopitar also got an assist on Williams goal -- his 500th NHL point. ... Los Angeles is 0 for 18 on the power play over its past five games. ... The Flames, who scored three power-play goals against the Kings in a 3-2 win at Los Angeles on Oct. 21, are just 4 for 50 in 18 games since then. ... The Kings penalty-killing unit has stopped 41 of the past 44 power plays. ... The Flames were 4-8-2 in November, and this was their only victory in regulation. Fake Vans Old Skool .

Sheets recorded his ninth 100-yard rushing performance of the season to tie the Riders club record.KINGSTON, Ont. - Missing some of its biggest stars, the Canadian figure skating team will still head to the world championships with the podium in its sights.Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford in pairs and Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje in ice dance headline the world championship team named Sunday at the end of the Canadian championships.Both the pairs and ice dance teams are enjoying breakthough seasons, sweeping gold in every competition in which theyve competed, including the Grand Prix Final in December.Given what we had coming out of the Final, definitely with Meagan and Eric and Kaitlyn and Andrew, (the goal is) podium, said Mike Slipchuk, Skate Canadas high performance director. And both have a great shot at gold. Those are two realistic entries.And we have a lot of unknowns.Missing in action this weekend were three-time world champion Patrick Chan and Olympic and world ice dance champions Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. All three, who were at the Rogers K-Rock Centre to watch the competition, are taking this season off to contemplate their futures.In a transition year, weve created depth, Slipchuk said. When and if Chan and the ice dancers return, he said it will only make us stronger.Spots that were available this year might not be there next year. That changed the landscape. And I think it makes everyone hungrier ... Were starting to see the potential of our younger skaters. They were thrust in the spotlight this year and they totally handled it fine.Nam Nguyen, a 16-year-old from Toronto, won the mens title in dominant fashion, giving a glimpse of a bright future in mens skating. Nam, he just lit it up, Slipchuk said. Nguyen is improving at breakneck pace, finishing 23rd in a junior Grand Prix last season months before winning the world junior championships. He captured a bronze and a fourth-place finish in his two senior Grand Prix events this season, and then had the performance of his career at the K-Rock Centre, opening Saturday nights free program with a huge quad Salchow on his way to a clean program.The thing with Nam is he is just so calm, cool and collected, and consistent, Slipchuk said. He has a good sense of humour, hes fun to be around, but when hes on the ice, its all business. With the way the field is now, and everyone is so technically efficient, youve got to be efficient. And he just gives you that feeling that first jump is landed, hess going clean. Fake Vans Store. Following in Chans footsteps, Slipchuk said, has helped Nguyens development.Weve always had someone everyone could develop underneqth. Jeff (Buttle) was there so Patrick had a year or two to build up. Then Patrick carried that group of men underneath him, so they could develop under him. And now this is the result of that.And I think its that leadership, we have a great group of skaters, theyre great role models, they want to see all Canadians succeed, and you saw that with Patrick being here (in Kingston) and Tessa and Scott being here, they all came back.Jeremy Ten of Vancouver is the other mens entry for the world championships. Gabrielle Daleman of Newmarket, Ont., won the womens title in a field that was missing defending champion Kaetlyn Osmond due to injury. Alaine Chartrand of Prescott, Ont., finished second to also make the world team.Canadas other two world entries in pairs are Lubov Ilyushechkina and Dylan Moscovitch of Toronto, and Julianne Seguin of Longueuil, Que., and Charlie Bilodeau of Notre-Dame-du-Portage, Que. Seguin and Bilodeau are still juniors, and are aiming for gold at the world junior championships.Ilyushechkina and Moscovitch are a new team this season, created after Moscovitch split with former partner Kirsten Moore-Towers. Ilyushechkina competed for Russia, and when Moscovitch discovered she was without a partner, he approached her via Facebook, inviting her for a tryout.They won silver this week despite only joining forces in the fall. They had just one previous competition under their belt.We had to prepare everything for a big start, I know the Canadian expression Go big or go home, Ilyushechkina said.Ilyushechkina is eligible to compete for Canada at the world championships, but must obtain Canadian citizenship to compete in the Olympics.Oh, its fantastic, she said, about wearing Canadas colours at the world championships. I dont believe it yet.Piper Gilles of Toronto and Paul Poirier of Unionville, Ont., and Alexandra Paul of Midhurst, Ont., and Mitchell Islam of Barrie, Ont., round out the ice dance group. All three had top-10 finishes at last years world championships, proving that Canadas strength in ice dance doesnt stop with Virtue and Moir.Weaver and Poje captured silver at last years worlds, but are the favourites for gold a year later.The world championships are March 23-29.
