Joe Root says England are raring to go in their must-win clash against Sri Lanka on Saturday at the World Twenty20. Shane Vereen Jersey . Defeat in their opening fixture against the West Indies put them on the back foot from the off, making every remaining fixture crucial.The West Indies are through to the semi-finals after their victory over South Africa on Friday, and England will join them if they beat Sri Lanka. There is always pressure to perform. We know its a must-win game but its been like that since we got here, Root said of the match, which will be shown live on Sky Sports 2 from 1.30pm.For us its ultimately about winning our game. Thats all we can worry about because thats the only way were going to be able to qualify.You can only really afford to lose one game and even then you can still crash out of the competition. Its T20. Its a complete knockout from here on in if we want to win it.The pressure is no more than it has been since that second game. Its all about getting over the line.To achieve that England know they must improve on Wednesdays display against Afghanistan. England celebrate a wicket against Afghanistan Although a humbling defeat was averted, the Afghan spinners made short work of Englands top six, leaving serious questions over their reading of conditions.Sri Lanka have a strong spin line-up of their own to unleash at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, led by the venerable left-armer Rangana Herath, and Root knows the trial by turn is one his side must combat better. Rangana Herath (right) will lead Sri Lankas spinners Its about learning from the mistakes we made last time in case we are on a similar pitch and face a similar attack with a lot of spin, he assessed.Everyone has their own way of playing spin, theres no right or wrong way, but for me its about trying to face as few dot balls as possible and trying to cash in with the boundaries when they are available.Every surface is different so it is about giving yourself the best chance on that particular pitch. Sometimes you might need to take a few extra balls to get accustomed to it but ultimately it is about playing the situation in front of you. Why do England not learn from previous mistakes when playing spin? You still want to keep that intent but theres other ways of scoring quickly. Maybe you score down the ground a bit more, maybe knock it into gaps and look for twos.Its about communicating that with the guy at the other end, watching the game if youre coming in to bat and doing what you need to do to put a big score on the board or chase one down. Englands Alex Hales hits out against West Indies Alex Hales missed out against Afghanistan with a sore back but returned to training on Friday, even taking part in the traditional football match before nets.That bodes well for his likely involvement, at the expense of James Vince, but the opener will face a fitness test in the morning.He has improved, said Root on Hales. We will get a good idea from how he will be on Saturday, but it is going to be important making sure he is absolutely ready. If not we have a strong squad and I am sure someone will fill in for him.

Kerry, In Mondays Habs/Bruins game, there were three questionable/brutal calls against the Habs late in the game - Tomas Plekanec, then Douglas Murray, then Brendan Gallagher. http://www.nygiantsfanatic.com/ .com) - The Winnipeg Jets placed defenceman Paul Postma on injured reserve Tuesday.After falling to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Friday, the Calgary Flames dive into another daunting matchup against the Chicago Blackhawks having dropped their first three contests of a four-game road trip and four straight in total. The Flames scored 3.11 goals per game - fifth-best in the NHL - during their first 27 games despite the third-lowest shots on goal average (26.6). Lately, theyve been getting plenty of shots but they havent been going in. Calgary has outshot its opponents 140-100 on this four-game skid, but its been outscored 14-7. (We need to) get more guys in front of the net and go to the dirty areas, forward Paul Byron told the Flames official website. It looks like other teams are scoring those goals right in the paint and were not getting enough of those. Third in the Western Conference just 10 days ago, Calgary has started to tumble in the standings. No one feels sorry for us, thats for sure, coach Bob Hartley said. Were in a very competitive business. Its around us, its there. Weve done it before, we just have to go back and keep going. On Sunday, well be against the Hawks. Its important we regroup, refocus and stay on the job in front of us. The Blackhawks and Flames have met twice already this season, with each team recording a win. Calgary edged Chicago 2-1 in overtime on Oct. 15 - one of only four home losses for the Blackhawks, who got revenge with a 4-3 road win Nov. 20. Karri Ramo and Jonas Hiller have alternated starts during the Flames losing streak. Hiller has started both games against the Blackhawks this season, and made 49 saves at the United Center in October. Jonathan Toews played Saturday after exiting Thursdays game with an upper-body injury. Hes been held to just three points in his past nine games against Calgary. One night after their longest winning streak of the season came to an end, the Blackhawks return to a place where theyre quite comfortable - even though theyve rarely seen it of late. Theyre back on the United Center ice Sunday night against the Calgary Flames, who look to end an otherwise dismal four-game road trip on a high note. The Blackhawks (20-9-1) failed to find the defensive effort that had carried them all season Saturday, allowing a season high-tying 41 shots to the New York Islanders in a 3-2 loss. Chicago came in yielding 28.7 shots per game. This was a wakeup call for sure, said Patrick Kane, who scored his 10th gooal in his last 14 games. Phil McConkey Jersey. We allowed too many chances. We will come back strong (Sunday). Our goalie was great and gave us every chance. Kane should have a good chance to score in a third straight game Sunday. He has 16 goals in 27 career meetings with Calgary - his second-best mark against any opponent - and has seven goals and five assists in the last eight in the series. Scott Darling, who stopped 38 shots Saturday, started all four games on the Blackhawks road trip, but hes never played on back-to-back nights in the NHL. That could mean Joel Quenneville turns to Antti Raanta, who has a .942 save percentage in five starts, as Chicago plays just its third home game since Nov. 17. After falling to Pittsburgh 3-1 on Friday, Calgary (17-12-2) has dropped the first three games of this trip to follow a home loss to San Jose on Dec. 6.
