ut-shortened season of 2013. The clu

  • 导出博客文章WINNIPEG -- The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have locked in their starting running back for 2015, after announcing that Paris Cotton has signed a two-year contract extension. Lindsey Horan Jersey . Cotton, 25, started the final four games of 2014 after taking over for Nic Grigsby, rushing for 341 yards on 55 carries with three touchdowns. He eclipsed the 100-yard mark twice in his final three games, averaging six yards per carry over his four starts. “His numbers speak for themselves, to be quite honest, said General Manager Kyle Walters. ”He got an opportunity and simply made the most of it. You look at what he did in those four starts, and it makes us eager to see what he can do over a full 18 games. Paris is a great young man with strong work ethic, an abundance of athleticism, and a team-first attitude, the Bombers second-year GM continued. He’ll have an opportunity to be the starting tailback with us next season.” Cotton also caught ten passes for 92 yards, and returned nine kickoffs for 184 yards. The move crosses off an important item on the teams off-season checklist, after a season that endured many highs and lows. Overall, 2014 saw marked improvement from 2013, as the Bombers won seven games (four more than the previous year) while competing for a playoff spot. They also appear to have their franchise quarterback in Drew Willy. On the other side, though, an eight-game losing streak eventually sidelined any hope of making the playoffs. The ground game, both defensively and offensively, plagued the Bombers through 2014, highlighted by a league-worst 152 yards per game against. With Cotton, though, their offensive rushing attack appears on track. “Having the chance to showcase my abilities late in the season was a blessing,” said Cotton. “Obviously we didn’t accomplish what we wanted to this season, but I feel the foundation is really there. Drew is a great quarterback and we are only going to get stronger the more time we play together.” Cotton said the thought of going elsewhere or exploring other options didn’t even cross his mind. “I knew all season this franchise is solid, from top to bottom. Coach Mike O’Shea is a first class coach, someone who players want to play for, he said. And once I had my opportunity, I was so grateful and wanted to get something done here as soon as possible. I’m really excited for what is ahead.” Head Coach Mike OShea, who guided the Bombers to a 5-1 start in his rookie season, said hes excited to see what Cotton can do over a full 18-game schedule. “The last few games, Paris reminded us of what we liked coming out of training camp,” said OShea. “He is a dynamic running back who possess quick feet and a burst of speed. We are looking forward to seeing what he can do for a full season.” Cotton originally signed with Winnipeg after impressing at the club’s Florida mini-camp last April. Prior to that, he played four years at Central Michigan, leading them in rushing in his final two seasons. Abby Smith Jersey . After a 99-97 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night, his Celtics coaches and teammates have only positive things to say about the Toronto-born rookie. Meghan Klingenberg Jersey . The 33-year-old Spaniard, who held the lead since the second round, turned in a solid final round that featured six birdies and two bogeys to finish on 22-under 266. The victory is Garcias first this year with his last win coming at the Johor Open, an Asian Tour event in Malaysia last December.(SportsNetwork.com) - The New York Rangers will try to win consecutive games for the first time this season when they finally play their home opener in Mondays clash with Montreal Canadiens at a newly-renovated Madison Square Garden.

The Rangers opened 2013-14 on a nine-game road trip while the $1 billion renovation project was being completed at MSG. New York went 3-6-0 during the season-opening trip and capped the swing with a 3-2 overtime win Saturday in Detroit. Derick Brassard scored on a breakaway with 12.9 seconds in overtime to lift the Rangers to a come-from-behind victory over the Red Wings at Joe Louis Arena. The victory ended a two-game slide which saw the Rangers score just one goal over consecutive losses to New Jersey and Philadelphia. Benoit Pouliot assisted on Brassards game-winner on Saturday and added a power-play goal earlier on to help the Rangers end their epic trek on a positive note. Mats Zuccarello also tallied for New York, while rookie goaltender Cameron Talbot notched his first career NHL win with a strong showing between the pipes. Starting for a second straight outing with Henrik Lundqvist sidelined with an undisclosed injury, Talbot stopped 32-of-34 shots. Lundqvist is expected to start on Monday after going through his first full practice in a week on Saturday. Although Lundqvist is set to return, the Rangers will nott have captain Ryan Callahan or fellow forwards Carl Hagelin and Rick Nash on Monday, as all three players are on injured reserve. Alyssa Naeher Jersey. . New York was 16-6-2 at MSG during the lockout-shortened season of 2013. The club will be back on the road for Tuesdays game against the New York Islanders before playing four straight on home ice. The Canadiens enter Monday having lost three of their last four games and they were dealt a 2-0 loss Saturday by the visiting San Jose Sharks, Logan Couture scored both goals and Antti Niemi turned away all 22 shots sent his way by the Habs. Carey Price made 33 saves for the Canadiens, who had won four in a row before going 1-3-0 in their last four contests. "They are a fast team. They played really well and managed the puck well. They dont give you a lot and play well defensively, but we were right there. We had our chances in the second. Their goalie made some good saves at the right times," said Montreal coach Michel Therrien. Montreal hopes to get back on track on the road, where the club is 3-1-0 this season. The Habs are set to play three of their next four games as the guest. Like the Rangers, Montreal is playing with a ton of injuries, and key offensive players Danny Briere and Max Pacioretty are among the hobbled Canadiens. The Canadiens won all three encounters against the Rangers last season and have taken five of six and 10 of the past 13 meetings in this Original Six rivalry. The clubs have split the last six contests at MSG.
