Watch Flyers’ Ivan Provorov Score Insane, Coast-To-Coast OT Goal Vs. Canadiens

Ivan Provorov must be watching Torey Krug highlights.
Just one week after the Boston Bruins defenseman scored an OT winner by dangling one guy after another as he coasted the length of the ice, the Philadelphia Flyers blueliner did the same Saturday.
During 3-on-3 overtime at Bell Centre against the Montreal Canadiens, the Flyers won a neutral zone draw, with Provorov gaining possession and skating behind his net. Once he and his teammates got set up, Provorov charged forward through all three zones, burning Montreal’s defense before slipping the winning shot past Carey Price just 31 seconds into the extra period.
Check it out.

The tally was the 22-year-old’s sixth goal and 17th point of the season as he continues to cement himself as one of the game’s best young defensemen.

Gordon Hayward Injury: Brad Stevens Shares Next Step For Celtics Star

The Boston Celtics aren’t nearly as unbeatable as they were when Gordon Hayward was around, so though they remain one of the Eastern Conference’s best, they will welcome his return when the time comes.
Hayward has been out since breaking his hand on Nov. 9, but up until then he was looking like he had returned to his All-Star form. The initial timeline for his return was six weeks, but lately Hayward has indicated that he might actually be ahead of schedule.

Following practice Saturday afternoon, Celtics head coach Brad Stevens shared a brief update on the forward.
“He’s able to do non-contact drills,” Stevens said, via MassLive. “And he’ll have another meeting on Monday over FaceTime with his doctor to look at the healing process, discuss what’s next, and then we’ll know more from there.”
The Celtics will face the New York Knicks on Sunday at Madison Square Garden.

Bruins Injuries: David Backes, John Moore ‘Very Close’ To Returning

Injuries have been a bear for the Boston Bruins to overcome, but they soon might be getting some reinforcements.
B’s head coach Bruce Cassidy noted following Saturday’s practice that both David Backes and John Moore are nearing returns.
“Backes is close,” Cassidy said, via the team’s Twitter account. “He’s been cleared now, it’s about is his conditioning where it needs to be, has he practiced enough to feel comfortable going back into the lineup? So we’ll have those discussions, but very close obviously. That’s typically what happens — and we’ll put Johnny Moore in that conversation as well, he’s very close, he’s back into a normal colored jersey, so there’s a little comfort level for him too. So that’s good news on those two.”
Backes has been out since his scary collision with the Ottawa Senators’ Scott Sabourin on Nov. 2. Backes’ injury has been described as upper-body, but Backes did indicated that he had concussion-like symptoms.
For now though, he’s believes he’s good to play in a game as soon as Sunday against the Montreal Canadiens at TD Garden.
“The team was extremely supportive, and I’ve been given a clean bill of health,” Backes said, via Bruins.com. “You know my history as far as if I’m playing when I’m at full health or not. I’m hopefully going to be available as soon as (Sunday) and then it would be up to the powers that be whether 42 can slot into the game to help us win another one.”
Moore has not played since gutting out a shoulder injury last postseason. The veteran defenseman, who is on Year 2 of a five-year contract, sustained the injury at the end of the regular season, then elected to play through it so he could be available for the playoffs instead of undergoing surgery. Once the season concluded, Moore underwent the surgery and has yet to play this campaign.
Puck drop for Canadiens-Bruins is set for 7 p.m. ET.

Toronto Marlies Snap Home Winning Streak to Utica Comets

TORONTO– The 2019/2020 Toronto Marlies received a setting upgrade.

In the team’s first of four games at Scotiabank Arena, home of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Marlies fought valiantly, but it did not translate to a victory. Taking on the Utica Comets in the first game of a back to back, the Marlies would lose to the Utica Comets 4-3.

“Not our best game, we gave them like 10 breakaways,” said Marlies defenseman Timothy Liljegren postgame. “We just have to pay more attention to where the players are on the ice.”

Tanner MacMaster got the scoring started for the Marlies. Pontus Aberg’s blazing shot from the point provided MacMaster the opening to tip the puck in the back of the net for his sixth goal of the season. This has extended MacMaster’s point streak to eight games, the longest of any Marlie this season.

After the Comets left winger Sven Baertschi tied the game up, Marlies leader in goals Kenny Agostino recorded his 11th goal of the season, tipping in Jeremy Bracco’s shot on the powerplay to give the Marlies a 2-1 lead. Agostino has seven goals in his last eight games and is now on a five-game point streak.

“Kenny is an AHL veteran, who has led the league in scoring before,” said Marlies assistant coach A.J. MacLean. “In the room, he’s a great voice who is very personable and helps the young guys. He brings people together.”

Penalties and special teams defined the majority of the play in the second period. Both the Marlies and the Comets each took two penalties, the most severe being a Comets double minor for high sticking by Dylan Blujus. Despite generating scoring chances, the Marlies were unable to take advantage of the four-minute powerplay.
***
The Comets kept piling on the pressure in the third period, resulting in Kole Lind’s game-winning goal. Kole’s slap shot over four minutes into the third would give the right-winger his fourth goal of the season. But after taking a high sticking penalty in the second period, Darren Archibald would tie the game on the powerplay for his fifth goal of the season. Reid Boucher would put in his 15th goal of the season on a wrist shot, propelling the Comets to victory.

As MacLean stated after the game, the odd-man rushes are an area that needs to be improved. Despite Marlies goalie Joseph Woll making 20 saves, it just wasn’t enough to stop the flurry of the Comets scoring chances.

“No matter who’s been in net, they have been sharp,” said MacLean. “We weren’t sharp enough in front to get the win for him.”

Saturday’s game against the Comets at Scotiabank Arena was a part of the AHL’s Hockey Fights Cancer campaign. An initiative to raise funds and awareness about those individuals in hockey affected by cancer.

The loss to the Comets snaps the Marlies home winning streak at a franchise-record nine games. The Marlies record at Scotiabank Arena is 14-13-1. Against the Comets, the Marlies are now 19-10-1-1 over the last five seasons.

The Toronto Marlies are back in action on Sunday at 4:00 pm EST for the second half of their back to back with the Utica Comets.The post Toronto Marlies Snap Home Winning Streak to Utica Comets appeared first on Last Word on Sports.

Bill Belichick Tell Amusing Story About Threatening To ‘Cut’ Tom Brady

Bill Belichick has been a revelation as a studio analyst.
Who would have thought?

The New England Patriots head coach made his debut last Friday on NFL Network’s “NFL 100 All-Time Team.” Belichick, along with co-hosts Rich Eisen and Cris Collinsworth, will reveal the NFL’s all-team team over the course of the six-part series. The best moment yet came Friday night, and Patriots fans will love it.
Hall of Fame linebacker Ray Lewis joined the panel after being named to the all-time team. At one point during the discussion, Belichick shared a hilarious story in which he once joked about cutting Tom Brady if the Patriots quarterback if he ran a certain play.
“I told Brady, if you throw that Y-Shake on Ray Lewis, I’m gonna cut you,” Belichick said.
Brady’s response was perfect.
“If I throw that Y Hook route on Ray Lewis, you deserve to cut me,” he said, per Belichick.
Watch Belichick tell the story at the 4:25 mark in the video below:

Great stuff.
The third episode in the series will premier next Friday. Let’s hope it offers more great anecdotes from the greatest coach in NFL history.

How Stephen Gostkowski Has Helped Patriots Amid Kicker Turmoil

FOXBORO, Mass. — Stephen Gostkowski hasn’t appeared in a game for the New England Patriots since late September, but he’s still found ways to help the team.
The veteran kicker has remained involved with Patriots as he recovers from season-ending hip surgery, assisting however he can as New England continues to search for a reliable replacement.

This guidance has been especially beneficial for rookie punter/holder Jake Bailey, who, along with long snapper Joe Cardona, has worked with three different kickers this season. That number will reach four Sunday night when newcomer Kai Forbath makes his Patriots debut against the Houston Texans.
“I can’t say enough good things about Joe,” Bailey said after Friday’s practice. “And Steve’s been around, too, to help me out with all that stuff. I’ve got a lot of good specialist leaders in this room — along with Matt Slater and a bunch of the other guys — and they’re just helping me stay comfortable and stay calm. If anything, they’re just helping me out in practice. That’s where we get all of our mental and physical reps for the week, and that’s where we build confidence.”
Gostkowski, who hosted the 22-year-old Bailey for Thanksgiving at his Wrentham, Mass., home, appeared in the New England’s first four games this season before landing on injured reserve. Mike Nugent initially replaced him but was cut a month later after missing three field goals and an extra point in his four appearances.
Nick Folk — like Nugent, a well-traveled journeyman — was kicker No. 3. He performed relatively well in his first three games as a Patriot (7-for-9 on field goals, with his two misses coming in a driving rainstorm) but underwent an emergency appendectomy Thursday morning, rendering him unavailable for Sunday’s game.
Folk reportedly is expected to make a quick recovery and could be back with the team as soon as next week, but he was released Friday to make room for Forbath, who kicked in just three games last season and hadn’t been on an NFL roster since February.
This is unfamiliar territory for the Patriots, who utilized just three kickers (Adam Vinatieri, Gostkowski and injury fill-in Shayne Graham) over the previous 23 seasons.
“We’ve been fortunate,” Patriots coach Belichick said. “We’ve had a lot of continuity through the years where we’ve been able to keep a snapper, holder and kicker together for multiple years at a time rather than switching them out every year, back and forth. Now, we’ve had some transition, I’m not saying that, but we’ve had sustained periods of four or five years where there hasn’t been a lot of change.
“Unfortunately, there has been this year, but I think those guys (Bailey and Cardona) are doing a great job in minimizing the amount of movement and change. Certainly, having those two guys being consistent makes it a lot easier for the kicker to come and execute.”
Belichick had especially high praise for Bailey, who’s already earned two AFC Special Teams Player of the Week awards and has handled kickoff duties since Gostkowski went down.
“They’ve been great,” the coach said. “Joe’s got a lot of leadership, obviously, and more experience, but Jake’s mature beyond his years. He’s handled everything as well or better than I could imagine anybody at his age and his experience level handling it, from the punts to the field goals to the holding to the kickoffs. He’s done a great job for us. They’ve both played great.”
