PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins regained their Stanley Cup-winning captain, and he made an immediate impact. Next up: The return of their Stanley Cup-winning goalie.Perhaps as early as Thursday night, when the Penguins -- already 4-0-1 at PPG Paints Arena this season, and 4-2-1 overall -- take on the New York Islanders.Matt Murray, who missed the first seven Penguins games as he healed from a broken right hand sustained during the World Cup, is practicing again and served as Marc-Andre Fleurys backup for the first time this season Tuesday night.Sidney Crosby, who missed the first six games with a concussion, returned Tuesday to score the Penguins first goal of a comeback in which they flipped a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 victory over the Florida Panthers.Coach Mike Sullivan isnt saying whether Murray will be ready to go against the Islanders, but Fleury started the first seven games, and no doubt the Penguins want to give him a night off soon.If only to see how Murray has recovered from his injury -- and whether he can sustain his level of play during the playoffs, when he became the most inexperienced goalie to win the Stanley Cup since Ken Dryden of Montreal in 1971.I think hes getting close, Sullivan said following practice Wednesday. Having the ability to back up and seeing the game up close (Tuesday) with the speed (of the game), even though hes on the bench, will help with his timing and inch (him) that much closer to being ready to play.The Islanders will play the second half of a back-to-back after losing 3-2 to the unbeaten-in-regulation Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. They lost three of four to the Penguins last season.Dennis Seidenberg scored the tying goal for the Islanders in the third period -- one of their 15 shots in the period -- but Shea Webers power-play goal with 2:57 remaining won it for Montreal.The first half of the game we didnt manage the puck properly, Isles coach Jack Capuano said. I think if you watch that third period, we had plenty of opportunities. Came down to their power play.The Islanders (3-4) will go from playing a Canadiens team thats off to a 6-0-1 start to one that won the Stanley Cup last season.Asked if the Islanders learned anything from playing the Canadiens, center John Tavares said, I think just to realize whats going to bring us success, especially against good hockey teams and teams (that) play a similar style of game to us. They play quick and they transition off the ice.The Islanders have faced Murray only once -- a 5-0 loss on April 2 that was Murrays first shutout in the NHL.Whenever he returns, Murray likely will wear a cast on his broken thumb for the time being.The bone doesnt fully heal for a long time, but its healed enough where I can do everything normally and not worry about it. Ill wear the cast while I play, Murray said.He couldnt have played much better last spring when, after appearing in only 12 regular-season games (going 9-2-1 with a 2.00 goals-against average), he carried the Penguins to the Cup with the steady glove hand of a much more experienced goalie. He went 15-6 with a .923 save percentage and a 2.08 GAA in the postseason.Fleury is his usual reliable self so far this season, with a 4-2-1 record and a .904 save percentage. But the Penguins likely signaled their course for the future last week when they signed Murray to a three-year, $11.25 million contract that begins next season -- even though Fleury is only in the second year of a four-year deal.The Penguins can only hope Murray is as impactful from the start -- even if he doesnt return Thursday -- as Crosby was. After a get-up-to-speed first period, Crosby looked himself after that, and Sullivan thinks hes good to go despite his prior concussion history.Theres no reason (not to think that), Sullivan said. I think Sids going to be fine.Sullivan made one adjustment during the game, breaking up the HBK line of Carl Hagelin, Nick Bonino and Phil Kessel by shifting Kessel to Evgeni Malkins line and installing Rust as the right wing on the Bonino line. Its likely that will carry over to Thursday.He (Rust) brings speed, he brings energy, he creates a lot of turnovers with his speed, Sullivan said of Rust, who scored both goals in the Game 7 Eastern Conference-clinching 2-1 win over Tampa Bay.

The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. http://www.cheappistonsjerseyschina.com/ . Mitch Holmberg added a goal and three assists. Connor Chartier also scored for the Chiefs (3-0-0). Luke Harrison spoiled Garrett Hughsons shutout bid with a power-play goal at 13:17 of the third period.

"Thank you for the warm welcome," Beckham said on an 80-degree February morning. In this case, it was soccer weather. The sport moved a step closer to returning to South Florida on Wednesday, when Beckham confirmed he has exercised his option to purchase a Major League Soccer expansion franchise in Miami. Cheap Pistons Jerseys . Most important, perhaps, it went off without a hitch. Organizers poked a little fun at the now-infamous opening ceremony gaffe that saw only four out of five snowflakes open up into rings, leaving the Olympics logo one ring short. 360 balls1904 v England, MCG Monty Nobles Australians were bowled out for 122 and 111 in this match, in which Englands Wilfred Rhodes not only took 15 wickets but had a further eight catches dropped off his bowling. But these were the days of uncovered pitches, and Wisdens report made clear that the weather was responsible for this outcome: The significance of the [England] win, however, was altogether discounted by the fact that before the Australians had any chance of batting, rain had ruined the pitch.429 balls1888 v England, SCG Again, this was a match - and a pitch - badly affected by rain. Australia were dismissed for 42 in the first innings and 82 in the second, with England bowlers George Lohmann and Bobby Peel proving impossible to handle in the conditions.457 balls1928 v England, Brisbane Exhibition Ground England won this Test by the monumental margin of 675 runs, though Australia lost both Jack Gregory and Charles Kelleway mid-match to injury and illness. The match was also notable for being Don Bradmans Test debut, Wisden describing the situation thus: Australia relied largely upon tried men, Bradman being the one youngster to secure inclusion. And in the final innings, having been set 742 for victory,, heavy rain rendered Australias task utterly hopeless.ddddddddddddWoodfull, batting splendidly, received no support at all, Wisden reported, nearly everyone who joined him hitting out wildly immediately on going in.558 balls2016 v South Africa, Bellerive Oval Australia could not use uncovered pitches or mid-match injuries as an excuse here. Outplayed in every way by South Africa, the Australians simply lacked the ability to handle the swinging and seaming balls delivered by Kyle Abbott, Kagiso Rabada and Vernon Philander. Skittled for 85 and then 161, it consigned Australia to a third consecutive home series loss to South Africa.611 balls1984 v West Indies, WACA On the list of excuses for poor batting, there have been few more understandable in recent decades than facing Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, Joel Garner and Courtney Walsh at the WACA. Pre-match rain left the pitch under-prepared and unpredictable, in the words of Wisden. Little wonder, then, that Australia were rolled for 76 and 228. Still, it took only one more Test for Australias captain, Kim Hughes, to resign in tears.
