MONTREAL -- Michel Therrien liked what he saw from the Montreal Canadiens power play. Cowboys Official Jerseys . He is still going to keep tinkering with it.Looking to jump start Montreals stalled power play, Therrien shuffled some players around and that was the difference as the Canadiens beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 on Monday night to extend their winning streak to four games.First-place Montreal (5-0-1) remains the only NHL team unbeaten in regulation time.The main change was putting forward Alexander Radulov on the point with Shea Weber on Montreals first power play. That strategy paid dividends in the third period when Brendan Gallagher tipped Radulovs shot from the point past Steve Mason at 13:08 to break a 1-1 tie.We still need to work on it, we need a little more chemistry, Therrien said. It would have been too easy to go back to the old formula, but we wanted to stick with our four forwards and one defenseman, and theyre the ones who won it for us tonight.Therrien felt a change was necessary as the Canadiens came into the game 3 for 21 with the man advantage, 20th in the NHL.The experiment looked to have backfired though as Montreal went 0 for 3 with the man advantage to start the game. But Gallagher needed just four seconds into the teams fourth opportunity of the night to deflect Radulovs shot into the net.They won the faceoff there and Webers set up for a one-timer, so theres that option, said Mason, describing Montreals game-winner. But he gives it right back to Radulov. And he shoots it, and I got a good line on it, but Gallagher got his stick on there and changed the direction in front of me.Radulov finished with an empty-net goal, two assists, five hits, and he drew a penalty in the second period.It was different because I havent played a lot in that spot, Radulov said of his position at the point. But with a partner like Shea Weber its easy. I always try to look to my right to give him the puck because he has a bomb and we have to use that more.Radulov got an assist on Montreals first goal. Weber put Montreal on the board at 5:28 of the second period with his second goal of the season.After good work behind the net by Radulov to get the puck back to the point, Weber fired a slap shot that broke Brayden Schenns stick and deflected into the net.The game was fast and I wanted to be ready, said Radulov, who has five points this season. I dont want to take any shift off. The guys here know what it takes to win.Carey Price made 31 saves in his third consecutive win to start the season.I wish he had the flu again tonight but its not the case, Claude Giroux of the Flyers said of Price. Hes one of the best. We did a lot of good things tonight. They were able to get that power-play goal in the third to get the lead, but as a team we played a really good road game.After Webers goal, the Flyers (2-3-1) tied it in the second period when Jakub Voracek deflected Girouxs shot past Price at 11:47. The goal came just seconds after Price denied Voracek all alone in front of goal.Voracek has three goals in six games this season.Game notes Mason stopped 30 of 32 shots in defeat. . Price played his 450th game with the Canadiens. . This was the first of three meetings between the teams this season. They meet again Nov. 5 in Montreal.UP NEXT:Flyers: play the second of a back-to-back at home against Buffalo on Tuesday.Canadiens: are at the New York Islanders on Wednesday.Cowboys Womens Jerseys . -- Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings was selected Monday to his second straight Pro Bowl, while guard Kyle Long made it after a solid rookie season. Cheap Cowboys Jerseys . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. http://www.authenticcowboysshopnfl.com/connor-williams-jersey/ . It was the kind of score that might make everyone else wonder which course he was playing. Except that Graeme McDowell saw the whole thing. Crouched behind the 10th green at Sheshan International, McDowell looked over at the powerful American and said, "Ive probably seen 18 of the best drives Ive seen all year in the last two days. SEATTLE -- It should have been a celebration for the Seattle Sounders. Instead, more frustration.New coach in charge. New star player in the lineup. Same disappointing result.We thought we deserved more. We had our chances. Its been somewhat the same story this whole year, Seattles Cristian Roldan said.Roldan scored his second goal of the season in the 49th minute to give Seattle the lead, but a defensive miscue late allowed Los Angeles Sebastian Lleget to score the equalizer in the 78th minute as the Sounders and Galaxy finished in a 1-1 tie.Seattle was in position to get the victory in the debut of interim head coach Brian Schmetzer, taking over this week after the club and MLS victory leader Sigi Schmid parted ways. Yet the frustrating season for the Sounders (6-12-3) continued after missing numerous chances to put the game away in the second half.I have absolutely no complaint about their commitment to the game, its just we need to score the second goal, the third goal, the fourth goal, Schmetzer said. Its not good. Were all frustrated.The past week was a tipping point for Seattle, the start of a makeover to try and salvage a season thats been far below expectations. The biggest move was the decision to move on from Schmid as the man in charge.Sunday was Seattles first game in franchise history without Schmid as the head coach. Schmid was appointed to navigate the franchise through its infancy beginning with its expansion season in 2009, but the relationship reached a breaking point this season with the Sounders slogging through the worst four months in club history and culminating with last Tuesdays decision between Schmid and the club to part ways.Schmetzer said it was a little strange not to have Schmids voice on the sideline. Loss Angeles coach Bruce Arena was highly complementary of Schmid and what hes brought to soccer in the United States. Leighton Vander Esch Jersey. Weve temporarily lost one of the great people in the game in this country, Arena said.Seattle was on the verge of giving Schmetzer a victory in his debut. Roldans goal was his second of the season off an assist from Nelson Valdez. But Seattles defense that broke down in the closing minutes, allowing a chipped pass by Steven Gerrard to find Lletget unmarked at the back post to tap in his first goal since Aug. 23, 2015.Seattle missed out on a needed three points in its attempt to get back into the playoff race in the Western Conference, but came away hopeful about what newly signed designated player Nicolas Lodeiro can provide. Despite arriving in Seattle on Tuesday, Lodeiro was the best player on the field. His playmaking created numerous chances for others and he nearly scored three times in the second half, his last chance a deflected shot that forced Los Angeles goalkeeper Brian Rowe to make a fingertip save.Los Angeles defender Jelle Van Damme also saved two shots off the goal line, one in each half. Van Damme denied Clint Dempseys shot in the first half then raced back on stuff Jordan Morris shot in the 70th minute after Morris was sent free on a pass by Lodeiro and dribbled around Rowe.The Galaxy (9-3-9) came away with a point despite playing without U.S. national team midfielder Gyasi Zardes, who missed the match with a strained chest muscle.For us to sneak out of here with a point, were not looking back. Were getting out of town real quick, and were not looking back, Arena said. Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Jerseys Free ShippingWholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '
