SAINT PAUL, Minn. Wholesale Jordans Online . -- If theres kryptonite that affects Minnesota Wild star goaltender Devan Dubnyk, it might be in the form of the St. Louis Blues.On Sunday afternoon, Dubnyk and the Wild get their third crack at the Blues this season and are still looking for their first win. Dubnyk is the hottest goalie in the league of late, leading the NHL in all major statistical categories. But in 17 career starts against the Blues, he is 4-11-2 with a 3.58 goals-against average and .883 save percentage.The Blues come to Minnesota with a 3-1-1 record in December and in the midst of a four-game road trip. They are coming off a 4-1 victory in New Jersey on Friday night which saw defenseman Brad Hunt make his season debut for St. Louis.Hunt was leading the AHL offensively with 29 points in 23 games. Hes likely to stick with the Blues until they get healthier, with defensemen Carl Gunnarson missing the last game with a lower-body injury, and Robert Bortuzzo expected to miss the next six weeks with the same ailment.The knock on Hunt is his size, but at 5-9, 185 pounds, the Blues hierarchy said he compares favorably to one of the Minnesota blueliners he will face on Sunday.Hes taller than (Minnesotas Jared) Spurgeon, and everybody in our league would like Jared, Blue coach Ken Hitchcock said after the New Jersey game, praising his team for their physical play. We played the game that were capable of and we had everybody dug in, playing the same way and we scored goals. The harder we check as a team, the more we score.The Blues three-goal final margin versus the Devils would be a noteworthy cushion for the Wild, who have played six consecutive one-goal games.All the games are like this. How many times have we had more than a one-goal game? I dont remember, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said after his team eked out a 3-2 shootout victory over Edmonton on Friday.While hed certainly like his team to find more breathing room, Boudreau likes the demeanor in stressful situations that his team is learning in his first season in Minnesota.But if anything, it teaches you how to be calm in a one-goal game, whether youre up a goal or down a goal, whether youre pushing or protecting, Boudreau said. So, I mean, I think its good experience and good help for everyone.While the Blues are dealing with a banged-up blue line, Minnesota looks to be getting healthier. Theyve played six games without Christian Folin, who is dealing with a lower-body injury. Folin, though, began skating in practice and participated in warm-ups prior to the Edmonton game. Its a good bet he will be back on the ice to face the Blues.It will also mark Mike Yeos return to Xcel Energy Center for the first time since the Wild fired him last February. Yeo was Minnesotas coach for four full seasons, and is now Hitchcocks top assistant in St. Louis. Cheap Air Jordan .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Cheap Air Jordan 1 China Wholesale . 4 Villanova with a 96-68 drubbing on Monday. Wragge hit 9-of-14 from behind the arc, matching Kyle Korvers school record for 3-pointers in a game set in 2003, as Creighton (16-3, 6-1 Big East broke a conference record with 21 treys in the rout. http:///...-wholesale-117e.html . -- Matt Kuchar and Harris English ran away with the Franklin Templeton Shootout, shooting a 14-under 58 on Sunday in the final-round scramble to break the tournament course record. LANDOVER, Md. -- Kirk Cousins wondered early in the Washington Redskins game against the Green Bay Packers if the wind would make it difficult.Instead, Cousins gripped the ball tighter, ripped it into the air and threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Redskins to a 42-24 victory Sunday night, Washingtons sixth victory in eight games.Handing the Packers (4-6) a potentially season-crushing fourth consecutive loss, Cousins outdueled two-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers and got the Redskins (6-3-1) rolling into a Thanksgiving showdown against the NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys.Lights out, said DeSean Jackson, who had a 17-yard touchdown catch . QB rating 145? So we need him to play like that a lot more. I think if we can get our guy back there playing like that, pretty much unstoppable.With Cousins carving up Green Bays porous pass defense and Robert Kelley running for 137 yards and three touchdowns, Washington put up 517 yards didnt wilt like it did in a playoff loss to the Packers. We Want Dallas chants filled FedEx Field in the final minutes of the game that only became a blowout late, but this was a well-rounded performance that the Redskins wish they couldve put together in January.We certainly had a sour taste in our mouths walking away from the game last season, said Cousins, who was 21 of 30 and also had TD passes to Jamison Crowder and Pierre Garcon . When you watch the film, we felt like there were plays there to be made that didnt get made. I think tonight you saw what we felt we were capable of doing last January and just didnt get it done.While the Packers allowed 30 or more points for the fifth time in six games -- all losses -- Rodgers and the offense couldnt keep up. He was 26 of 41 for 351 yards and three touchdowns, but the result was the same.We put ourselves in a tough spot, Rodgers said. Weve got find a way to get a win next week and approach it one week at a time. Thats all weve got right now.The Redskins have a big meeting at Dallas to look forward to. The Cowboys (9-1) have won nine in a row.Were feeling good, but at the same time its a short week and were playing one of the best teams in the NFL on Thursday, Cousins said.GGREEN BAY IN DEEP: The loss put the Packers two games back of the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions in the NFC North. Cheap Air Jordan Shoes. Each team won Sunday, meaning Green Bay may need to pull off a heck of a feat to return to the playoffs.We clearly understand the urgency thats in front of us, coach Mike McCarthy said.GUTSY GRUDEN: After kickers around the league missed 11 extra-point attempts going in, Washington coach Jay Gruden opted to go for 2 twice -- and converted neither. But he was validated when Green Bays Mason Crosby missed a 36-yard attempt at that end in the third quarter and when his kicker, Dustin Hopkins, shanked an extra-point attempt off the right upright in the fourth.Gruden was feeling risky all night, going for it on fourth-and-1 from his own 41 with 6:22 left. Cousins sneaked it to convert and reward his coach, and the drive finished with a touchdown by Kelley.The fourth-and-1 was pretty simple: It was half a yard, and the wind was pretty strong in our face, Gruden said. Thought our offensive line was getting pretty good movement (and) wed get half a yard with the quarterback sneak play.BANGED-UP PACKERS: Already missing offensive linemen J.C. Tretter and T.J. Lang, the Packers lost cornerback Demitri Goodson (knee), replacement right guard Don Barclay (shoulder), linebacker Blake Marinez (knee) and safety Kentrell Brice (back).QUICK-STRIKE OFFENSE: While the offenses were on ice early in the night, they combined for two touchdowns in the first 35 seconds of the fourth quarter. Rodgers 31-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open James Starks came on the first play of the fourth, and Cousins connected with Garcon on a 70-yard touchdown on the second play of the Redskins next drive.QUOTABLEKelley on his special night: Real special, especially for the guys in the fantasy leagues.Packers safety Micah Hyde: We have way too much talent in this locker room to be performing like that. But week in, week out, were doing it. Im speechless.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
