(SportsNetwork.com) - The Philadelphia Flyers hope to enter the Christmas break on a positive note when they aim for a third straight win in Tuesdays road battle against the Minnesota Wild. The Flyers have gained a point in eight of their last nine games, posting a 5-1-3 record during that stretch. Philadelphia also has kicked off a season- long eight-game road trip with two straight wins despite entering the swing with a 3-9-3 away record. The Flyers havent won three in a row since Nov. 4-8. Philadelphia ambushed the Toronto Maple Leafs to begin the trek on Saturday, posting a 7-4 win at Air Canada Centre. The Flyers were able to save some offense for Sundays game in Winnipeg, as they rallied for a 4-3 overtime victory against the Jets. The Flyers trailed 3-1 heading into the third period on Sunday, but finished the contest with three unanswered goals. Vincent Lecavalier notched two goals in the third period, tying the contest at 3-3 with 3:14 left in regulation before Jakub Voracek won the game just 10 seconds into overtime. Just seconds after the opening faceoff of OT, Claude Giroux pressured Dustin Byfuglien on the forecheck and Voracek was there to take the loose puck and emerge from behind the net to beat Ondrej Pavelec with a quick wrister. It was the second goal of the night for Voracek, who is leading the NHL with 44 points on 14 goals and 30 assists. The 25-year-old Czech has three goals and four assists over the last three games and on Monday was named the NHLs Second Star for the week ending Dec. 21. The Flyers comeback made a winner of Rob Zepp, who at 33 years of age became the oldest NHL netminder to win his first career start since 41-year-old Hugh Lehman in 1926. Zepp stopped 25-of-28 shots in his NHL debut. I thought in the third we really dug in and started to compete, Flyers head coach Craig Berube said. I thought (Zepp) really handled himself well. With No. 1 netminder Steve Mason out with a back injury, either Ray Emery or Zepp could start tonight for the Flyers. Emery is 4-2-1 with a 2.39 goals against average in seven career games against the Wild. While the Flyers hope to match their longest winning streak of the season tonight, Minnesota is aiming to avoid equaling its longest skid of 2014-15. The Wild lost four straight in regulation from Nov. 4-11, but they have earned points twice on their current 0-1-2 slide. Mike Yeos club has dropped two straight in overtime and the Wild had to rally for Saturdays 6-5 home loss against Nashville. Minnesota trailed 5-3 after Roman Josi scored on the man advantage for Nashville at 9:05 of the third period, but Zach Parise answered just 1:41 later with a power-play tally of his own. The score stayed at 5-4 until Thomas Vanek tallied with the goalie pulled in favor of the extra attacker with 47.8 seconds left. However, Mattias Ekholm scored the game-winning goal for Nashville at 1:45 of OT, beating Niklas Backstrom with a wrister from the right circle. The point gained was little consolation for Yeo, who was disappointed in his clubs defensive effort. Its clearly not good enough, Yeo said. You score five goals it should be automatic. Parise finished with two goals and an assist for the Wild, who were outshot 44-27 in the game. Vanek and Marco Scandella each tallied a goal and a helper and Jason Zucker also scored for the Wild. Backstrom gave up three goals on 30 shots in relief of Darcy Kuemper, who stopped 11-of-14 shots during the first period. Minnesota fell to 9-3-3 as the home team on Saturday and is playing the third part of a four-game homestand tonight. The Wild will complete the residency Saturday when it opens a home-and-home set against Winnipeg. The Wild earned a 3-2 regulation win in Philadelphia on Nov. 20 and Tuesdays test will complete the season series. Minnesota has taken two of three from the Flyers overall and owns a 3-2-0 mark with a tie in the six all-time encounters in St. Paul. دیدن لینک ها برای شما امکان پذیر نیست. لطفا ثبت نام کنید یا وارد حساب خود شوید تا بتوانید لینک ها را ببینید.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in St. Louis partially reversed a federal judges order that had rejected the unions collusion claim, sending the case back to U.S. District Judge David Doty for further proceedings. The three-judge appeals court panel that heard oral arguments in January disagreed with Doty on one of the unions two arguments for pursuing damages despite the 2011 collective bargaining agreement that was supposed to relinquish the unions right to sue for alleged breaches of the old CBA. The NFL called the appeals court decision "entirely procedural in nature" and said its "far from validating" the claims of the NFL Players Association. "The Court specifically highlighted the heavy burden that the NFLPA faces in establishing this claim, and we remain highly confident that the claim will be dismissed yet again," the NFL said in a written statement. The league, however, could be forced to make public otherwise-confidential financial and strategic information in court, which the union has pushed for all along. "We are pleased that the Eighth Circuit ruled that players have the opportunity to proceed with their claims," the NFLPA said. "Through discovery and a hearing, we can understand how collusion took place. We have notified the NFL of its obligations to preserve all relevant documents and communications." The collusion claim seeking at least $4 billion in relief for the players was originally filed in May 2012, less than a year after the new CBA was implemented following a five-month lockout. The final year of the prior CBA was supposed to be "uncapped," but tthe union cited public references by New York Giants owner John Mara and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell as evidence that a salary cap existed and claimed a loss of $1 billion in cumulative compensation.dddddddddddd Dallas and Washington were penalized for overloading contracts in that 2010 season despite league warnings, and the NFL in 2012 penalized them by taking away $10 million in cap space from the Cowboys and $36 million from the Redskins. Dotys oversight of the 1993 Reggie White class-action settlement was marked by mostly player-friendly rulings. The league lost enough key decisions under his jurisdiction that it twice tried to have him removed from his role as the sports legal referee, alleging impartiality. But in December 2012 he handed the union a rare defeat, pointing to the new CBA language that dismissed all prior claims and prevented the players from reopening the White settlement that served as the backbone for the old CBA to sue. The NFLPA appealed soon after. The 8th Circuit panel -- chief judge William Riley and circuit judges Roger Wollman and Bobby Shepherd -- has traditionally tilted pro-business, but this was a win for labour. The appeals court sided with Doty in ruling the alleged collusion did not invalidate the 2011 dismissal of claims because the settlement has been treated more like a contract than a true class action. However, the appeals judges disagreed with Doty on this: Under a federal rule authorizing relief in exceptional cases where the party being sued disingenuously reached the settlement, the union should be allowed to argue the merit of its lawsuit despite the 2011 dismissal. "The Association bears a heavy burden in attempting to convince the district court that the dismissal was fraudulently procured," the judges wrote. "We hold only that the Association should be given the opportunity to meet this burden." ' ' '
