The All Blacks depth has been tested once again in their 57-22 win over Argentina, with several substitutes being injected into the fray to good effect.The world champions were challenged in the first half by an energetic Pumas outfit and, looking for stability, introduced halfback TJ Perenara and prop Charlie Faumuina soon after half-time.Both responded in the best possible way, with Perenara laying on three try assists in an assured display and Faumuina barging over for a five-pointer in the corner.Fellow substitute Luke Romano also managed to influence proceedings by crossing for a late try.Coach Steve Hansen said the 24-year-old Perenara, who helped lead the Hurricanes to Super Rugby glory this season, deserved his 32 minutes after a sub-par Aaron Smith display.Nuggy (Smith) just wasnt having the night he wanted, getting a little frustrated, Hansen said.It was great for TJ to come on and I thought he was outstanding, playing really well (and) cleared the ball quickly off the deck.Perenara said he was glad to play his part after participating in just 28 minutes of the All Blacks back-to-back wins over the Wallabies.My job is to come on and be accurate in what I do and try and make an impact, Perenara said.Blues tighthead Faumuina said he and his teammates on the bench endeavoured to inject energy into the affair as Los Pumas visibly wilted.They were glad to add some zip to the All Blacks offensive play.The boys were working hard in the first half and you just want to bring something special to them, a bit of energy that the boys needed, 29-year-old Faumuina said.The Pumas were left to rue missed opportunities as they simply couldnt keep up the intensity late into the second half with Argentina coach Daniel Hourcade admitting his side could not live with the All Blacks pace and power for the full 80 minutes.Argentina came in for considerable praise from All Blacks coach Steve Hansen after the match, and Hourcade was pleased by his sides competitiveness against the best team in the world.But he said they had failed to make their early periods of dominance count or use their kicking game to good effect.We put a lot of pressure against them but perhaps we consumed a lot of energy, Hourcade said.When we couldnt put that pressure on, they were more relaxed and started to play, and it made a big difference.Skipper Agustin Creevy, who made 15 carries for 35 minutes, received hearty applause from the Kiwi faithful when substituted in the second half.He was honoured by the gesture but upset his side couldnt make their early intensity pay.His side had looked to take advantage of the All Blacks vulnerability at the breakdown by playing closer to the ruck but soon grew fatigued.They can produce the difference in the last 20 minutes as they showed today, the 31-year-old said.They showed theyre one step ahead of the rest of the teams.Hourcades Pumas will now travel to Perth to take on an Australian outfit buoyed by their drought-breaking victory over the Springboks in Brisbane on Saturday.Creevy said only a victory would satisfy him against the Wallabies.Were here to win games and not just to see what happens, we want to continue growing, the Jaguares hooker said.We are a team thats going to look for a win against Australia and the games afterwards.

NEW YORK -- It is not even Christmas yet, and the New York Islanders season is already on the brink. Head coach Jack Capuano is definitely out of patience with his underachieving team.The Islanders will look to begin their long-shot climb back into the Eastern Conference playoff race Thursday night, when they host the Western Conference-leading Chicago Blackhawks at Barclays Center.The Blackhawks began a three-game road trip Tuesday with a 2-1 win over the New York Rangers. The Islanders continued skidding Tuesday, when they gave up a pair of third-period goals in a 4-2 loss to the Washington Capitals.It was the second straight game in which the Islanders were tied after two periods only to lose by multiple goals. The Columbus Blue Jackets scored four unanswered goals in the third period of a 6-2 win on Saturday night.Earlier this season, the Islanders suffered five losses in which they surrendered the tying or go-ahead goal in the final three minutes of regulation.Its frustrating, because you know the abilitys there, Capuano said of the Islanders. who reached the Eastern Conference semifinals last spring for the first time since the 1992-93 season. I dont know where its gone. But Im losing my patience a little bit with some of the guys.Any personnel changes may be too late for the Islanders (11-11-5), who are in last place in the Eastern Conference.New Yorks task is made even tougher by the fact it plays in the Metropolitan Division and thus has little chance of sneaking into the playoffs as a third-pllace team in a mediocre division.ddddddddddddThe first-place Pittsburgh Penguins and third-place Blue Jackets are each in the midst of seven-game winning streaks. The two wild card teams -- the fourth-place Philadelphia Flyers and fifth-place Capitals -- have 10 straight and five straight, respectively. The New York Rangers were also streaking before falling to the Blackhawks on Tuesday.Things are much less dire for the Blackhawks (19-8-4), who appear primed to contend for their fourth Stanley Cup in the last eight seasons. Chicago is comfortably ahead of its nearest foe, the Minnesota Wild, in the West despite battling a litany of injuries to stars such as center Jonathan Toews, who missed nine games with a back injury before returning Tuesday, and goalie Corey Crawford, who underwent an appendectomy on Dec. 3. Crawford has yet to resume skating.In the six games since Crawford was sidelined, backup Scott Darling has allowed just eight goals while leading the Blackhawks to a 3-2-1 record.He makes huge saves in the key time, Blackhawks center Artem Anisimov said Tuesday night. Amazing right now.Darling seems likely to draw the start again Thursday night against either Jaroslav Halak or Thomas Greiss. Halak has started five of the last six games for the Islanders but could travel ahead of his teammates to Buffalo, where New York is scheduled to face the Sabres on Friday night.
