Lipo Battery Safety Guide For RC hobby

Lithium Polymer or LiPo batteries are a great new way of storing energy for portable devices from cell phones, home electronics to RC hobby battery packs used in cars, boats and flight. They’re great because they can store 350% (approximately) more energy than a typical NiCd/NiHm battery pack and weigh 10% – 20% less. They can also discharge much more current than a NiCd/NiHm battery and can be fully charged in about an hour. LiPo batteries also don’t develop memory or voltage depression characteristics like NiCd/NiHm batteries, and do not need to be discharged before being charged.

But they’re not without their downside. Mishandling of these batteries can lead to fire, explosions and toxic smoke inhalation. In the rest of this guide we will cover safety guidelines of charging and handling Lipo battery packs. Some may seem pretty obvious, but it is often the obvious things that are the most dangerous when ignored. Another good resource is our rc car batteries lipo info. This page is a very good resource on Lipo battery ratings and terms and if you are new to Lipo technology we recommend you read this as well.

Charging Lithium Polymer or LiPo batteries have very specific charging requirements and MUST only be changed by specific chargers designed to charge 3.7 lipo battery. We recommend only balance charging your lipo batteries. All good quality Lipo battery packs come with 2 leads. The main charge / discharge lead and connector and a balance lead and connector. Using a computerised balance charger to charge your Lipo batteries will ensure that all the cells in the battery pack have the same voltages. The voltage value is critical to the condition (during use) and safety of each cell, which we will cover more in this article.

“1S” or 1 cell LiPo battery has a nominal voltage of 3.7v. When fully charged it has a maximum voltage of 4.2v and when fully discharged, it should never go below 3.0v without risking cell damage. Based n this logic “5S4P” battery pack means that the pack contains 5 cells in a series circuit and 4 cells in a parallel circuit. Since each cell is 3.7v (nominal) a 5S LiPo battery has a nominal voltage of 18.5v, a fully charged voltage of 21.0v and a maximum discharged voltage of 15.0v before damage occurs.

CHARLOTTE, N. Sergei Nemchinov Jersey .C. — Defensive end Greg Hardy has signed his franchise tag tender with the Carolina Panthers, a person familiar with the situation said Tuesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the signing has not been made official. Hardy, who said in January hed have no issue if the team used the franchise tag to keep him, will make $13.1 million for one season if he doesnt sign a long-term extension. The Panthers have until July 15 to sign Hardy to a long-term deal. After that date they cant discuss a contract extension until after the season is over. When the Panthers used the franchise tag on Hardy Friday, general manager Dave Gettleman said in a press release it was done so to buy more time to potentially work out a long-term extension with the former Mississippi star. “The franchise mechanism gives us time to secure the services of a very good player while we continue to look at the future of Greg with the Carolina Panthers,” Gettleman said. “We have had great dialogue with both Greg and his agent. It was important to keep our defensive front together.” The four-year NFL veteran had 15 sacks last season, tying a franchise record previously established by Kevin Greene in 1996, and was selected to his first Pro Bowl. Hardy has 26 sacks in his last two seasons. Hardy led the Panthers with 38 quarterback pressures last season and posted a career-high 67 tackles for the NFC South champions. The Panthers led the league in sacks last season with 60. Gettleman said Hardy was “a big reason we were able to lead the league in sacks last year and keeps our defensive line intact.” Brad Richards Rangers Jersey .

Speaking ahead of this weekends Bahrain Grand Prix, which will be a night race for the first time, Domenicali said rival engine manufacturers Mercedes and Renault have an advantage on Renault because their road-car divisions have more experience with fuel-efficient six-cylinder engines, which have come into F1 this year. “We know that other engine manufacturers have advanced knowledge because they use that technology in their road cars, so we knew it was not going to be easy,” Domenicali said on the official F1 website. “But we know the areas where we need to improve and falling into disappointment doesnt help.” “If Mercedes keeps the pace it will be very difficult to match them.” Ferrari has been well off the pace of the Mercedes team and Renault-powered Red Bull in the first two races in Austrralia and Malaysia, with Fernando Alonsos two fourth-place finishes the best the Italian team could manage. Tie Domi Jersey. Domenicalis discussions with Red Bull driver Sebastian Vettel in the paddock at last weekends Malaysian Grand Prix sparked renewed speculation that Ferrari was interested in signing the German, but the Ferrari chief insisted his team was satisfied with the performance of current drivers Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen, who simply need a better car. “That is the urgent need, and it has to happen very soon,” Domenicali said. “So far Fernando has proved to be fast immediately. Kimi needs some time to understand the car, but you can see he is getting there. I am sure from the drivers side there will not be a problem. “Sebastian is a fantastic driver, a four-time champion. Thats a fact. We as Ferrari are very pleased with what we have, and I am sure that Sebastian is also pleased with his situation because it looks as if he can fight again.” cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

. That was the prevailing sentiment from the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night

CALGARY — If it aint broke, dont fix it. Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping . That was the prevailing sentiment from the Toronto Maple Leafs Wednesday night, who in an increasingly familiar storyline, won 4-2 over the Calgary Flames despite being outshot by a wide margin. James van Riemsdyk scored a pivotal short-handed goal and Jonathan Bernier made 41 saves as the Maple Leafs won their third in a row and increased their lead atop the Atlantic Division despite being outshot for the 11th game in a row. “Right now, the way were playing, were winning and I think its hard for a team to change what were doing,” Bernier said. “Were scoring some big goals, were getting some huge blocked shots, and some good PK and a good PP and thats a huge thing for us.” With Toronto playing on consecutive nights and the Flames having had three days off, the game started predictably with Calgary going to the attack immediately. However, despite peppering Bernier for 15 shots, they trailed 2-0 after the first thanks to an opportunistic Leafs offence that connected twice on seven shots against Karri Ramo. The key goal was scored by van Riemsdyk with four seconds remaining in the period. “A couple games ago, I had a similar chance and I just tried getting over the blue-line and taking a wrister,” van Riemsdyk said. “This time, I saw we had a 2-on-2, there wasnt much time, so I thought Id try to kick it wide and Jay (McClement) made an unbelievable pass underneath the triangle of the defenceman and I just tried to throw it on net as quickly as possible.” While Calgary drew back to within one goal on two occasions, Toronto did not relinquish the lead the rest of the night. It was Torontos first victory in Calgary since Dec. 27, 2002. The Leafs had lost their last seven visits to the Scotiabank Saddledome. “(Bernier) was definitely huge for us. Our goaltending has been great all year and we seem to get outshot every night but our goalies give us a chance and we are getting some timely scoring and thats been our recipe so far,” said van Riemsdyk. Joffrey Lupul, Mason Raymond and Paul Ranger into an empty net — also shorthanded — rounded out the scoring for Toronto (10-4-0). The Leafs wrap up their three-game road trip through Western Canada on Saturday in Vancouver. Matt Stajan and David Jones scored for Calgary (5-5-2), which lost at home in regulation for the first time (3-1-1). The Flames wrap up a three-game homestand Friday against Detroit. “Its just so frustrating right now. I thought we played a pretty good game from the top on down but that was one heck of a performance from Bernier,” said ex-Leaf Joe Colborne, who led all Flames forwards with a season-high 23:54 in ice time. “We were going to the net hard, we were creating secondary rebound chances and it was just one of those nights where things arent going to go in.” Entering the night, the storyline was Phil Kessel, who had seven goals and 10 points in the previous four games to climb into a tie for second in the NHLs scoring race behind Sidney Crosby. However, the Flames — like they blanked Alex Ovechkin in their previous game — were also able to hold Kessel off the scoreboard. “I felt that we had a good game. We are not very pleased with the result but I dont know what we could have done more,” said Flames coach Bob Hartley. “Offensively we generated a lot. Our forechecking was good. Our puck decisions in the offensive zone were very good but Bernier basically stole the game away from us.” As is always the case when Toronto visits Calgary, the Saddledomes sea of red turned into a mixture of blue and red with plenty of very vocal Toronto supporters on hand. With Toronto clinging to a 2-1 lead, the visiting fans got something to cheer about 5:59 into the third period when David Clarkson took the puck to the net and while he was stopped, Raymond was right there to tuck in the rebound. Scoring against Calgary is nothing new for Raymond, a native of nearby Cochrane, Alta. Its his 11th career goal against the Flames, the most hes scored against any team. Calgary fought back to within one again when Jones deflected Kris Russells point shot at 14:39 of the third, but they could not get back to even despite getting a man advantage with three minutes left when Clarkson was sent off for boarding. It was the second boarding penalty of the night for Toronto. In the second, Carter Ashton sent Flames defenceman Derek Smith head first into the boards from behind, an incident that resulted in a fight between Ashton and Sean OBrien, who jumped in to Smiths defence. Smith left the ice on his own, albeit slowly. He did not play the rest of the period but he returned in the third. Notes: During the last 11 games, Toronto has been outshot 400-266… The assist was Clarksons first point with the Maple Leafs. Suspended by the NHL for the first 10 games of the season, he had been blanked in his first three games… C Mikael Backlund was a healthy scratch for the Flames with rugged winger Tim Jackman drawing in, in his place….

Joe Smith and the Los Angeles Angels have completed a

ANAHEIM, Calif. Sharks Jersey . – Joe Smith and the Los Angeles Angels have completed a $15.75 million, three-year contract. The team announced the move Wednesday after Smith took his physical. The sides agreed to terms last weekend on a deal that should boost the Angels bullpen. The 29-year-old Smith was 6-2 with a 2.29 ERA and three saves in 70 appearances covering 63 innings this year for Cleveland. He has 13 wins over the past two seasons. The submarining right-hander spent the past five years with the Indians after pitching for the New York Mets in his first two major league seasons. He is 27-16 with a 2.97 ERA in 439 career games, all in relief. Smiths contract includes $500,000 annually in potential bonuses. To make room on the 40-man roster, the Angels designated right-hander Juan Gutierrez for assignment.

Instead, he pounced on the ball, threw to second and — with the help of a replay and a heads-up tag by Chase Utley — retired Martin Prado to help preserve the Phillies comeback victory. Pinch hitter Cody Asche hit a two-run double in Philadelphias four-run eighth inning and Ruiz kept Arizona from getting a runner in scoring position with his hustle play in the ninth, leading the Phillies to a 6-5 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night. “It was a hustling play,” Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said. “He could have very easily put it in his pocket there, but he made it fairly close and ended up with a big play just with the hustle.” The Phillies had to rally after ace Cliff Lee allowed five runs in the first three innings. Philadelphia fought back by scoring two runs off Bronson Arroyo in the seventh and four more in the eighth against Joe Thatcher and Trevor Cahill (1-5). Jeff Manship (1-0) allowed a hit and two walks in an inning for his first win since Sept 6, 2010, with Minnesota and Jonathan Papelbon worked the ninth for his seventh save — with an assist from Ruiz and a replay. The inning started with a single by Prado, who then was called safe on the close play at second. Sandberg checked the teams internal replay and called for a challenge, arguing Utley had tagged Prado after he came off the bag on the slide. Following a lengthy review by the umpires, Prado was called out. Papelbon then struck out Paul Goldschmidt looking, and Miguel Montero grounded out to end it. Ruiz also had three of Philadelphias 13 hits and drove in a run. The Phillies have won five of seven. “We were down by five heading into the seventh inning and to pull that off was definitely big,” Lee said. Arizona had bounced back from a difficult start to the season behind its starting pitching and got a decent outing from Bronson Arroyo, who extended the rotations scoreless innings streak to 18 2-3 innings by pitching into the seventh. But Arroyo gave up two runs in the seventh and the bullpen couldnt hold the lead after he left, leading to the Diamondbacks ninth loss in 10 home games. Cody Ross had three RBIs and twwo hits for Arizona, which had three errors, including a dropped popup by Prado at third to start the eighth inning. Ben Smith Sharks Jersey. “We should have had enough pitching to get through that game,” Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. “We just didnt play well.” Lee had been superb against Arizona in six previous starts, going 4-1 with a 2.93 ERA and 42 strikeouts in 43 innings. The left-hander has been dialed into the strike zone against everyone so far this season, entering Saturday nights start with 38 strikeouts and two walks. Lees control wasnt quite the same against the Diamondbacks. Arizona scored two runs off Lee in the first, including an RBI single by Ross that ended a 1-for-22 slump since returning from the disabled list with a dislocated hip. A.J. Pollock added a run-scoring triple in the second inning and Ross made it 5-0 in the third with a two-run single to left. Lee allowed three earned runs and eight hits in six innings. He also walked two to double his season total. “They were getting hits. I was missing on the plate a little bit, but they got their fair share of hits on decent pitches, too. Those things happen,” Lee said. “I just feel good about keeping it where it was at after the third and continuing to put up a few zeroes there to give us a chance and definitely did that in the last three innings.” Arroyo did his part, allowing two runs and seven hits in 6 1-3 innings, but Arizonas bullpen let it slip away. Thatcher allowed two runs before being lifted and Cahill laboured for the first time since moving to the bullpen. Asches big double hit first base umpire Bob Davidson before caroming toward the stands, and Ben Revere followed with a run-scoring single that made it 6-5. “It is embarrassing,” Cahill said. “Bronson threw a great game. I should be able to come in and get three outs without letting them take the lead back especially with a three-run lead.” NOTES: Phillies 3B Freddy Galvis is hitless in 21 at-bats after going 0 for 4. … RHP A.J. Burnett, Philadelphias starter in Sundays series finale, has yet to win this season in five starts despite a 2.73 ERA. … RHP Brandon McCarthy, Arizonas starter on Sunday, tossed eight scoreless innings against the Phillies last season, but did not figure in the decision. cheap nfl jerseyscheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger and NHL broadcaster Pierre McGuire were on the NHL on TSN panel on Sunday and the two discussed what could happen leading up to, and on, deadline day. Dreger believes that this could be the week that Carolina Hurricanes forward Tuomo Ruutu gets dealt, as there are reports out of Carolina that the club would like to make a move sooner rather than later. McGuire says that he expects the power brokers in the West, Detroit, Chicago and Vancouver, along with Nashville and the New York Rangers and Penguins in the East to drive the trade market as they make a push to win the Stanley Cup. Watch it here. Just the Beginning? While the Chicago Blackhawks added Brendan Morrison from the Calgary Flames on Friday night, the club is apparently not done trying to make deals. According to Tracey Myers of Comcast Sports Network, general manager Stan Bowman has said that hes looking for a defenceman before the deadline. Read the full report here. Toughening Up? The Detroit Red Wings open the second half of the season as the top team in the league, and not surprisingly theyre looking to add some talent at, or before, the trade deadline. Gregg Krupa of the The Detroit News reports that the club is looking to get tougher with the playoffs looming, and head coach Mike Babcock revealed his wish-list. “To me, if we could get another heavy winger, or heavy forward, or D – those would all be good things to help you,” Babcock told the News.

Carmelo Anthony said he wants to stay in New York,

GREENBURGH, N. Nike Roshe One Flyknit Mens UK .Y. – Carmelo Anthony said he wants to stay in New York, and said he wants to win. It will be up to Phil Jackson to convince him that he can do both. With the Knicks season over and Anthony missing the playoffs for the first time in his career, he can begin thinking about his future. He plans to become a free agent in July and wants to be someplace where he can compete for championships. The Knicks never came close this season, going 37-45. Anthony said it was a “failure” and an “embarrassment” that hes unwilling to go through again, which could force him to look elsewhere since New York will have trouble changing its roster next season. “I want to come back. I also want to win. Me wanting to be here, if we can put ourselves in position to at least compete at a high level over the course of whatever, five years, the contract would be, then Im willing to stay here,” Anthony said Thursday while wearing a red hat with the letters “NY” at the Knicks training centre. He met with Jackson, who took over as team president in March and has said he could envision Anthony as a central piece of the Knicks future. Less clear is what he thinks about coach Mike Woodson, who received a strong endorsement from the Knicks leading scorer. “To be honest with you, Mike Woodson, me and him have become, hes been a guy I can talk to,” Anthony said. “Hes been almost a father figure, a friend, a guy who I can bounce stuff off of. Ive been a guy hes talked to multiple times about multiple things, different situations. So when that time comes, if its ready for me to step up and take that next step and say, OK, Mike Woodson needs to stay or go — I dont think it would come down to that — but Ill back him. If he needs my recommendation, whether its here or anywhere else, Ill back him.” Amare Stoudemire said Woodson wasnt a part of his exit meeting with Jackson and general manager Steve Mills, and he hadnt seen him Thursday. Woodson led the Knicks to 54 wins and a division title last season, and the Knicks embraced their high expectations coming into 2013-14. But they got off to a dismal start and couldnt recover, bad timing with their best player having the option to leave. The Knicks can pay Anthony around $30 million more than any other team, but wont have much financial flexibility to build around him until a number of contracts come off the books following the 2014-15 season. Yet Tyson Chandler, who like Stoudemire owns one of those contracts, said changing the players wasnt what the franchise needed. “I think a lot around here is made about personnel and this and that. I dont think thats it,” he said. “I personally think that you have to bring a winning culture around here, and until thats established, you can rotate players as much as you want. Its not going to make a difference.” That winning culture has escaped the Knicks, who last won a championship in 1973 when Jackson was a player here. Anthony said he understood it would take time after he was traded to New York in 2011, but said hes “not at a point in my career where I want to rebuild” as he prepares to turn 30 next month. “I dont know if I can afford to wait another season of losing. I really cant see that picture right now,” Anthony said. “As far as other teams thats out there, which quote-unquote team would be a better situation, you never know. Sometimes the grass is not always greener on the other side, so this is stuff that Im going to have to sit down with myself and my family and really figure this out. This is not a decision thats going to happen overnight.” He has time to think, since he cant play basketball now anyway. He began rehab on his right shoulder, which has a torn labrum, on Wednesday. “I just want to get away, kind of decompress and kind of clear my mind, because I dont want to come into this thing with a clouded judgment or things like that,” Anthony said. “When I come back, my mind will be clear.” nike roshe one flyknit womens . — After losing home-ice advantage on the final day of the regular season, the Montreal Canadiens couldve found satisfaction in splitting the first two games at Tampa Bay Times Forum.

SYRACUSE, N.Y. — North Carolina has beaten Michigan State, Kentucky and reigning national champion Louisville in this up-and-down season, but the Tar Heels were no match for No. 2 Syracuse. A strong start keyed by James Michael McAdoo vanished amid the Oranges flailing arms and diving bodies, and Syracuse beat UNC 57-45 on Saturday in an Atlantic Coast Conference marquee matchup. Forwards C.J. Fair and Jerami Grant combined for 32 points and 20 rebounds to pace the Orange, who shot a season-low 35 per cent (21 of 60) and still won handily, leading by as many as 19 late in the second half. “They got by and won a game shooting 35 per cent,” said UNC coach Roy Williams, who dropped to 1-4 against Syracuse in his Hall of Fame career. “The first six or eight or 10 minutes, I thought we were aggressive. We were involved. I thought after that point they were just so much more aggressive than we were. It ends up a 12-point game, but it really was more than a 12-point game. “They had so much more intensity than we did.” Not at the start. North Carolina attacked the middle of the Syracuse zone with great success at the outset, with McAdoo hitting a pair of jumpers and J.P. Tokoto another from the foul line as the Tar Heels gained an 8-4 lead in the first 4 minutes. “We started slow, let McAdoo get in the lane,” Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim said. “Once we got back in front, our defence was good the whole game.” The Orange regrouped after a timeout and went on a 17-5 run keyed by Fair and Grant, who did all the scoring. Fair, who had three early turnovers and was struggling at the start, hit a 3 from the wing and converted three free throws to give Syracuse a 19-15 lead, and two free throws by Grant completed a 10-0 spurt that put the Orange on top to stay, 21-15 at 8:53. The Tar Heels cooled off in a big way after the solid start, unable to penetrate inside. After Paige converted a three-point play with 13:04 left, UNC got only a fast-break slam dunk by McAdoo, a layup by Nate Britt and a jumper in the lane by Leslie McDonald in the ensuing 11 minutes and went into the locker room at halftime trailing 34-22. “Forr us, not being able to get looks — we were successful early in the game. Nike Roshe One Flyknit Grey and white. Thats really on us, McAdoo said. “And also them being really good.” Syracuse (16-0, 3-0 ACC) evened its all-time record against the North Carolina (10-6, 0-3) to 4-4. UNC started 0-2 in ACC play three times in the past five years and five times overall, and the loss to Syracuse equaled the worst conference start in school history in 1996-97, Dean Smiths final year as head coach. The last time North Carolina scored fewer than 45 points was in a 56-44 loss to eventual national champion Villanova in the Southeast Regional final of the 1985 NCAA tournament. The Tar Heels also beat North Carolina State 45-44 in February 1997. UNC shot 2 of 12 from behind the arc against the Syracuse zone and 20 of 51 (39.2 per cent) overall and was outrebounded 41-35, 17-10 on the offensive glass, netting just two second-chance points. “They were just playing harder,” said Tokoto, who finished with three points on 1-of-6 shooting. “Thats pretty much what it was. We couldnt knock down the shots we needed to make and go on our run.” The Tar Heels dont play again for a week, when they host Boston College. “Cant go backwards,” Tokoto said. “Its on to the next game. Just got to look at the film, look at what we did wrong as a team, and where we can improve on.” North Carolina was coming off a 63-57 home loss to Miami in which the Tar Heels shot just 31 per cent (20 for 65) and finished with a season-low scoring output against Miamis zone. This game, which featured teams with a combined 3,990 wins (UNC is third with 2,100 and Syracuse fifth with 1,890) was decided by a dominant first half by the Orange. Tyler Ennis finished with 10 points and seven assists to go with a season-high four turnovers, and Trevor Cooney had five steals and 10 points on 4-of-17 shooting. Rakeem Christmas contributed eight rebounds and had four of the Oranges nine blocks. Marcus Paige led North Carolina with 17 points and McAdoo had 15 points and nine rebounds. Desmond Hubert suffered a concussion in practice Friday and did not play against Syracuse. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

“And potentially more than that

NASHVILLE — Jonathan Quick remains perfect in shootouts. Nike Air Huarache Run Womens . Hes pretty good in regulation, too. Quick made 34 saves and stopped all three shots in the shootout and Anze Kopitar scored in the shootout to lift the Los Angeles Kings to a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Thursday night. Slava Voynov scored for the Kings, who have won four of five. Quick turned aside Craig Smith, Filip Forsbeg and Matt Cullen in the shootout. He has denied all eight shots he has faced in shootouts this season, winning all three he has participated in. “It is kind of a crapshoot to be honest,” Quick said of the shootout. “Were fortunate, so far it has gone our way this year so far. At the end of the day we got two points in a tough building against a conference opponent.” Nashville goaltender Pekka Rinne had stopped Mike Richards and Jeff Carter before Kopitar scored. Kopitar skated down the right side and elevated a backhand over the left shoulder of Rinne. “I saw Jeff and Mike try and shoot, so I figured I would mix it up a little bit,” Kopitar said. “I guess I was fortunate that my move worked.” Cullen scored his first goal with the Predators at 10:33 of the opening period for the early lead. Nashville finished a five-game homestand 3-2. After Quick made a diving save to deny Nashvilles Gabriel Bourque from the slot, Cullen was able to corral the puck in traffic, move to open space and beat a fallen Quick with a wrist shot from the right side. “I just want to contribute,” Cullen said. “They havent been coming easy, so it was nice to see a good ending.” Nashville has scored first in three consecutive games. “We just couldnt find an answer for Jonathan Quick,” Nashville coach Barry Trotz said. “He made some incredible saves in the second period.

At the left faceoff dot, Richards froze Rinne and then fired a cross-ice pass to Voynov in the right circle, where he was able to beat a diving Rinne for his second goal of the season. Voynov has scored in consecutive games. With just over six minutes remaining in the third, Rinne denied Richards on a short-handed breakaway attempt to keep the game tied at 1. Nashville had the only power-play opportunity of overtime, but Quick denied Nashvilles two shots, both by Patric Hornqvist. “It takes a lot of courage to kill a 4-on-3,” Los Angeles coach Darryl Sutter said. “Because generally you have to get in front of a puck, a hard shot somewhere.” NOTES: Rinne played his 300th career NHL game. … Smith has points in three straight games. .

If were sitting at the draft with our first pick and then were not picking again until the fourth round, thatd be disappointing. “Thats exactly what were going to try and do – get those picks back.” While the Oilers have their first-round selection – on pace for a high lottery position – the team traded its second-round pick to the SSt. Nike Air Max 90 Womens Blue.

Smyth and Hemsky are set to become unrestricted free agents on July 1, while Gagner had two years left on his contract worth $4.8 million per season. “Were going to be aggressively speaking to teams and letting them know what were trying to do, seeing if theres a fit,” said MacTavish.   cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

Michigan State had every reason to fold.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Michigan State had every reason to fold. Cheap NFL Jerseys . The seventh-ranked Spartans were coming off a draining loss to rival Michigan and again were down two starters to surging Iowa — which was hosting its biggest game in years. Michigan State responded with the toughness it has shown so often under coach Tom Izzo and emerged from Iowa City with a season-defining win. Keith Appling scored 16 points and the Spartans outlasted No. 15 Iowa 71-69 in overtime Tuesday night, handing the Hawkeyes their first home loss. “I was concerned coming in whether we could get back up off the can. Not physically, we were going to be beat up. I was worried about mentally,” said Izzo, whose team fell to the Wolverines 80-75 on Saturday. “We didnt have time to be tired.” Matt Costello had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Spartans (19-2, 8-1 Big Ten), who avoided consecutive defeats despite the absence of injured starters Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson. But it took 5 extra minutes — and an Iowa shooting drought that lasted nearly 15 minutes — to pull it off. Costellos tip-in with 1:14 left gave Michigan State a 67-64 lead, and Russell Byrds 3 with 34 seconds put Michigan State up by six. Iowa still had a chance to force a second overtime, but Mike Gesell missed a driving layup at the buzzer. Devyn Marble had 21 points for Iowa (16-5, 5-3), including a layup with 6 seconds left in overtime that snapped the Hawkeyes streak of 14:50 without a field goal. “I just didnt think we were tough enough. We werent tough at all,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. “I think they were being nice.” The Hawkeyes boast one of the nations deepest benches, and they kept threatening to run away from the undermanned Spartans early in the second half. Michigan State wouldnt let it happen. The tough-minded Spartans had an answer for nearly every basket that could have swung the momentum back in Iowas favour. Iowa led 57-51 with 5:58 left, and its crowd began to sense the win. But Appling — with his shooting wrist heavily taped — hit a 3, and a layup and dunk by Costello made it 58-57 Spartans. “We have guys that want to win,” Appling said. “I feel like this win speaks volumes of the character of our team. We have a lot of guys that are able to dig down and compete. And at the end of the day I feel like thats what gave us the victory.” The Hawkeyes had a chance to win in regulation, but Marble missed a runner just before the buzzer. That was a theme that doomed the Hawkeyes. Aaron White had 10 points for Iowa, which lost despite hitting 19 more free throws than Michigan State. “I felt like we were moving the ball well. We had some really good looks at it and just didnt make any,” McCaffery said. What made the loss even tougher for Iowa was it had been nearly a decade since Iowa City had seen a game this big. Iowa hadnt hosted a Top 25 opponent as a ranked team since 2006, when it last went to the NCAA tournament. Even Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad made the 2-hour drive from Des Moines to see the programs biggest home game in years. The Hawkeyes looked like the tighter team early. But the Hawkeyes hung close by building what would end up being a 43-20 edge in free throw attempts. The second half and overtime proved to be a physical, back-and-forth affair between two teams with serious aspirations of a Big Ten title. In the end, it was the Spartans who pulled out a game with 16 lead changes, 11 ties and one seemingly inexplicable shooting drought from the typically high-scoring Hawkeyes. In victory, Michigan State also showed Iowa how slim the margin between contending for a Big Ten title and winning it can be. “Weve had games where we could have (showed resolve), but we didnt. This is the first game where weve had the opportunity and weve carried through,” Costello said.

Gone will be the fear of impending doom that enveloped the club during its second-round comeback against Pittsburgh. Missing will be the nerves that any goal or loss could mean the end of the season. Suddenly, the Rangers are the front-runners against the Montreal Canadiens, and their fans now have the chance to celebrate the ride with them. “Having fan support is obviously huge,” Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. “Unconditional love, its something thats really beneficial to a team.” New York is riding a five-game winning streak, but four of those victories came on the road — two in Pittsburgh when the Rangers erased a 3-1 series deficit, and the first two in this matchup with Montreal. The Rangers will skate at the Garden on Thursday night with a series lead for the first time since Game 2 of the first round against Philadelphia 15 games ago. “Its a good feeling, but we know weve accomplished nothing yet,” forward Martin St. Louis said. “Were trying to prepare for a Montreal team thats going to come out with a lot of energy. We know that. This is a big game for everybody. We know where the series is, and its a big opportunity for us.” Nothing is a guarantee, but to take a 3-0 series lead would set the Rangers up for their first trip to the Stanley Cup finals since 1994. Since New York fell way behind Pittsburgh with a dispirited home loss in Game 4, the Rangers have been playing with a sense of desperation. It didnt reset once they eliminated the Penguins, and so far they have shown no signs they will let the Canadiens recover. “I feel every game is a must-win in the playoffs,” St. Louis said. “You go into every game understanding what can happen with a loss and what can happen with a win. Its a lot of momentum shifting, a buildup in the playoffs, and you want to make sure you keep it as long as you can.” The Canadiens mindset is to regroup and play the kind of road game the Rangers did by jumping on them. Montreal is still dealing with the loss of No. 1 goalie Carey Price, who was knocked out of the series by injury in the opener, but now is trying to rally around third-stringer Dustin Tokarski. The iinexperienced goalie, who has played in only 11 career NHL games, got the surprise nod by coach Michel Therrien in Game 2 over regular backup Peter Budaj and was tabbed again Wednesday to start in Game 3. Cheap Authentic Jerseys. . Struggled forward Thomas Vanek was dropped to the fourth line in practice on Wednesday alongside Danny Briere and Brandon Prust in another potential shake-up. “Dont read too much, OK?” Therrien said. “They might change tomorrow.” Whatever the lineup looks like, the Canadiens have adopted a motto of no excuses as the series shifts to New York. “We lost the first two games. Weve got to do something different,” Canadiens captain Brian Gionta said Wednesday in Montreal before the team flew south. “But at the same time, we had a pretty good game in Game 2. Weve just got to find ways to get more goals and get to them a little more offensively.” They netted only two in a blowout loss in the opener, and then scored one on Monday in a 3-1 loss. The Canadiens grabbed what had been an all-important first goal, but they lost the lead just 17 seconds later and were trailing 2-1 before the first period ended. Henrik Lundqvist was the main reason the Rangers were ahead, holding off an early attack and then a third-period surge in which he stopped all 19 Canadiens shots. He made 40 saves overall. “We are down two, and we are going on the road,” said forward Max Pacioretty, who scored the lone Montreal goal in Game 2. “Obviously, we would have liked to have Game 2, but we can only worry about Game 3. Weve got to be better. “We have to make life difficult for their goalie, and if we do that, I like our teams chances.” Pacioretty, a Connecticut native, is also looking forward to the atmosphere at the Garden, even though he will be wearing an enemy sweater. “I love MSG,” he said. “I grew up watching games there. I love going there. I havent played in the finished building yet, so this will be fun for me.” One person who hopes to be back on the ice on Thursday is Rangers forward Derick Brassard, who was injured early in the opener and missed all of Game 2. He went through a full practice on Wednesday and was waiting to meet with the medical staff and Vigneault to see if he would rejoin the lineup. Fellow forward Benoit Pouliot sat out for a maintenance day. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘

Hamilton defeated Montreal 27-24 last weekend thanks to Brandon Banks 107-yard return of an errant Whyte field goal attempt. After the game, Whyte criticized referee Andre Proulx. “I wanted to say something,” Whyte said. “Im probably going to get fined for this. “Im sick of this.

He never calls it. Paul McCallum got hit a couple of weeks ago, they didnt call it. They call everything on a quarterback. Why arent you calling these things on kickers? “The guy hit me on the knee. That could end my career.” With the win, Hamilton (9-8) clinched second in the East Division to host Montreal (7-10) in the conference semifinal Nov. 10 in Guelph, Ont. In keeping with its policy, the CFL didnt divulge the amount of the fine. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ‘ ‘ ‘
