A pair of teams trying to avoid their third straight loss will meet Tuesday in Columbus, as the Blue Jackets host the Ottawa Senators at Nationwide Arena. Viewers in the Ottawa region can catch all the action starting at 7pm ET/4pm PT on TSN5 or listen on TSN Radio 1200 Ottawa. Columbus is just 2-4-0 since beginning 2014-15 with two straight wins and the club dropped games this past weekend in Anaheim and Los Angeles to go 1-3-0 on a four-game road trip. The Blue Jackets hope a brief two-game homestand against Ottawa and Toronto can help them get back on track. The Senators, meanwhile, have lost both of their games since last Wednesdays scheduled home meeting against Toronto was postponed until Nov. 9. The game was scrapped after a Canadian soldier was shot and killed Wednesday morning in downtown Ottawa while standing guard at the National War Memorial. Ottawa carried a four-game winning streak into Saturdays home test against New Jersey, but dropped a 3-2 overtime decision before losing 2-1 at Chicago on Sunday. The Senators fired 33 shots on net against the Blackhawks, but Scott Darling stopped all but one of them to earn the victory in an impressive NHL debut. Milan Michalek tallied Ottawas lone marker and Craig Anderson stopped 43- of-45 shots for the Senators. I thought our goaltender played well, said Senators head coach Paul MacLean. We lost, so were disappointed, but at the same time we should be able to take some positives out of it. Ottawa is 2-2-0 as the visiting team this season. The Sens will host a rematch against Chicago on Thursday after capping its two-game road trip tonight. The Senators are 1-0 against the Blue Jackets this season, posting a 3-2 regulation victory when Columbus visited Ottawa on Oct. 18. Ottawa has claimed two straight and four of the last five meetings overall and has won its last two tilts at Nationwide Arena. Columbus lost the final two tilts on its recent road trip by a combined 9-3 margin, losing 4-1 to the Ducks on Friday before dropping a 5-2 decision Sunday in Los Angeles. The Blue Jackets led 1-0 after 20 minutes against the Kings, but L.A. scored the next three goals to take the lead for good. Tim Erixon and Mark Letestu scored the goals for Columbus, while Sergei Bobrovsky was touched for five goals on 27 shots. Bobrovsky was placed on injured reserve after fracturing a finger during practice on Monday. The clubs No. 1 netminder is expected to miss 1-to-2 weeks with the injury. Curtis McElhinney will get the start in net tonight and Anton Forsberg was recalled from Springfield of the American Hockey League to serve as the backup. Sundays game also featured a scary incident when Columbus forward Nick Foligno was taken off the ice on a stretcher, but the injury was later diagnosed as a stinger and Foligno could play in tonights game. Foligno was hurt in the third period while battling Los Angeles Jeff Carter for a puck along the boards, Folignos head appeared to hit Shane Heyers hip as the linesman tried to avoid the play by leaping onto the dasher. Foligno underwent a precautionary x-ray in Los Angeles and had an MRI exam on Monday in Columbus. All results were negative. The 26-year-old Foligno is questionable for Tuesday, but he did not partake in the morning skate. He has three goals and six assists in eight games this season. Columbus forward Matt Calvert was placed on injured reserve Monday after sustaining an upper-body injury in Fridays loss to the Ducks. Calvert, who expects to miss a week, has one goal and an assist through seven games this season. The Blue Jackets recalled rookie forward Alexander Wennberg from Springfield of the American Hockey League to fill the roster spot.

Luke Wileman and I stood in the corridor outside of the Vancouver Whitecaps dressing room at BC Place in Vancouver. Kyzir White Jersey . Karlovic of Croatia used his big serve to beat Jiri Vesely of the Czech Republic 7-6 (6), 7-6 (7). Kohlschreiber had lost all of his three previous matches against Istomin but the German broke serve for a decisive 3-2 lead in the third set and held on to reach his first final of the year. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. Virgil Green Chargers Jersey . As if he had been rehearsing it, Vasquez looked around with a grimacing stare as he clinched two fists and flexed his muscles. What do you think of DeMar DeRozans face after he hits a big shot, he was asked moments earlier. Derwin James Jersey . On Wednesday night, they showed that stellar defence and a little small ball can get the job done too. With pinch-runner Kevin Pillar aboard after Dioner Navarro opened the bottom of the ninth with a single, Anthony Gose dropped down an excellent bunt along the first-base line.ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Buffalo Bills were better. In the end, they werent good enough.Thats the message general manager Doug Whaley intends to present the franchises new owners, Terry and Kim Pegula, after Buffalo (9-7) closed its best season in a decade, but still extended the NFLs longest playoff drought to 15 seasons.Were encouraged, but were not satisfied, Whaley said. Weve got things that we can build on. But again, we cant be satisfied until we get into the playoffs.The Bills showed signs of being relevant and having resilience in a year full of distractions from the death of Hall of Fame owner Ralph Wilson in March, to a severe snowstorm that forced the team to relocate its home game to Detroit last month in matching their best finish since 2004.Buffalos strength was a dominating defence that produced three Pro Bowl linemen: Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.More bitter than sweet, Kyle Williams said.A sputtering offence and inconsistent play at quarterback dragged them down. EJ Manuel was benched after a 2-2 start, and 10-year journeyman Kyle Orton was erratic down the stretch after providing an early spark.That puts Buffalo in the all-too-familiar position of having a big question mark at quarterback. Manuel will be back, but the 2013 first-round draft picks status as a franchise player has been compromised. Orton surprised the team Monday by announcing his intention to retire.It will be up to the Pegulas to determine what approach to take in the coming months.Whaley and coach Doug Marrones jobs are considered safe entering their third seasons. The Pegulas havent ruled out adding a veteran presence to oversee the football operation, with former Bills GM turned broadcaster Bill Polian mentioned as a candidate to fill what would be a newly created role.Here are a number of things that stood out for Buffalo, which finished second in the AFC East after six straight last-place seasons:NOT GOING ANYWHERE: A year after defensive co-ordinator Mike Pettine left Buffalo to take over in Cleveland, Kyle Williams vows to put up a fight should anyone attempt to lure away Pettines successor, Jim Schwartz.Im going to chain him to a car in the parking lot, Williams said. Obviously, wed be happy for him. But hed probably have to leave town with people hanging on his legs.Its premature to tell iif the former Detroit Lions coach will be considered for any NFL vacancies.dddddddddddd Whats evident is the stamp Schwarz placed on the defence in his first season in Buffalo.The Bills led the NFL with 54 sacks, were third with 30 takeaways, and fourth in yards allowed. They made a marked improvement in stopping the run. After giving up 2,063 yards rushing under Pettine, the Bills allowed just 1,703 this season, the teams fewest since 2004.PEDESTRIAN RUN: Injuries and inconsistent offensive line play led to the Bills finishing with 1,482 yards rushing, the teams fewest in a 16-game season.Fred Jackson was slowed by knee and groin injuries, while co-starter C.J. Spiller missed seven games with a broken collarbone.We failed miserably, Jackson said.TURNING POINTS: Two losses stand out that put huge dents in the Bills playoff hopes.Coming off their bye week at 5-3, Buffalo squandered a 10-point second-half lead in a 17-13 home loss to Kansas City. With the Bills leading 13-3, the game turned on their opening drive of the third quarter. Running back Bryce Brown was three steps from scoring before fumbling into the end zone, where the ball bounced through tight end Scott Chandlers hands and out of bounds for a touchback.Then came the dud at Oakland on Dec. 21. A week after beating Green Bay, the Bills were eliminated with a 26-24 loss to the then-2-12 Raiders.WATKINS CATCHES ON: Sammy Watkins set franchise rookie records with 65 catches and 982 yards receiving, along with a team-best six touchdowns. The trouble was his inconsistency, though he finished fourth in yards among NFL rookies.The Bills traded their first-round pick in the 2015 draft to move up five spots to select Watkins fourth overall. Whaley defended the gamble he took, saying Watkins played to his potential in filling the No. 1 receiver spot.FREE-AGENT WATCH: Spiller, defensive end Jerry Hughes, who finished with 9-1/2 sacks, and run-stuffing linebacker Brandon Spikes head the Bills list of players eligible to become free agents.Whaley intends to make an effort to re-sign Spiller and Hughes. Spikes status is uncertain after rookie Preston Brown established himself as a starter, and with Kiko Alonso set to return after sustaining a season-ending left knee injury in July.___AP NFL website: and Wholesale Falcons Jerseys Wholesale Buccaneers Jerseys Wholesale Cardinals Jerseys Wholesale Bills Jerseys Wholesale Jets Jerseys Wholesale Panthers Jerseys Wholesale Ravens Jerseys Wholesale Texans Jerseys Wholesale Patriots Jerseys Wholesale Steelers Jerseys Wholesale Cowboys Jerseys Wholesale Packers Jerseys Wholesale Browns Jerseys Wholesale Chiefs Jerseys Wholesale Colts Jerseys Wholesale Rams Jerseys ' ' '
