Montreals top unit leads the way offensively

METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have released running back C.J. Spiller, who signed a four-year, $16 million free-agent contract just last season.Spiller was a healthy scratch Sunday, when the Saints opened the regular season with a 35-34 loss to Oakland.On Monday, Saints coach Sean Payton said Spiller was scratched because there wasnt room for him in the Raiders game plan, adding that Spillers role could change week to week.But when the NFL posted Tuesdays transactions, Spillers contract had been terminated.When the Saints acquired Spiller, they hoped his versatility and his speed would allow him to fill roles similar to those of ex-Saints Reggie Bush and Darren Sproles.But Spiller needed arthroscopic knee surgery last preseason and has contributed relatively little to New Orleans prolific offense.In 2015, Spiller gained 112 yards rushing and 239 yards receiving in 13 games, his lone significant highlight being a late-game, 80-yard touchdown catch in a victory over Dallas.Spillers best NFL season was 2012, his third as a pro, when he had 1,244 yards rushing and 459 yards receiving.---Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Mitchell Trubisky Jersey . The defending champion beat Gael Monfils of France 7-6 (6), 6-3, while second-seeded Andy Murray of Britain dispatched Edouard Roger-Vasselin, also of France, 6-3, 6-3. Making his first appearance since injuring his wrist a month ago, Del Potro had difficulty with his service games in the first set. Authentic Custom Bears Jersey .

McPhee said that Ovechkins father Mikhail is in stable condition after having the surgery this week and is no longer in intensive care. "Weve told him to stay as long as necessary with your dad," he said. Ovechkin and his Russian national team were eliminated from the mens hockey tournament in Sochi on Wednesday with a 3-1 quarter-final loss to Finland. Jim McMahon Jersey . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. MONTREAL -- Canadiens coach Michel Therrien found one line that works. Now hes hoping his latest shuffling of the remaining cards gets the other three going.While the top line of left winger Paul Byron, center Alex Galchenyuk and right winger Alexander Radulov remained intact, Therrien tinkered with the rest of his forward units. The most notable change came in between wingers Max Pacioretty and Andrew Shaw, with Torrey Mitchell getting the nod.Its the latest in an effort to get Pacioretty going. The Canadiens captain recorded 13 points in 19 games so far this season, but only four have been goals and have been largely spread out. Its an unusual stretch for the left wing, who typically scores in bunches. Mitchell will be the fifth pivot hes skated with this year.Im excited to play with Torrey; hes one of the guys I havent played with yet, Pacioretty said after practice on Monday. Hes got great energy and hes a great skater so well see if we can put something together (against Ottawa).Im trying to do whatever I can to help the team win, he added. Every night its going to be different, and Im excited for a new challenge.The other changes saw Phillip Danault move to Tomas Plekanecs left wing while David Desharnais, who had been with Pacioretty and Shaw of late, will center the fourth line with rookie Charles Hudon and 27-year-old Chris Terry.Montreals top unit leads the way offensively, in large part due to the chemistry between Radulov and Galchenyuk, as well as their individual talents. Together with the speedy and versatile Byron, the trio accounted for six goals in five games together, while getting scored upon just once.The 22-year-old Galchenyuk leads the Canadiens (14-3-2) with 19 points on the season.Hes capable of scoring goals, hes got great hands, gifted hands, Therrien said. He works extremely hard after practice on his release. Players who have success, even if youre gifted offensively, it doesnt just show up just like that. This kid works extremely hard and thats the reason hes got the results.Senators coach Guy Boucher is hoping hiss teams offense starts to find its way soon.dddddddddddd The team scored two goals or fewer -- excluding shootout tallies -- in 12 straight games, going 6-5-1 during that stretch. It hasnt been for a lack of effort, however, with at least 30 shots on goal in eight of those outings, including 40 in Saturdays loss to Florida.When I looked at our game (against the Panthers), we attempted 83 shots on net, 40 shots, we had 26 scoring chances, he said told reporters before the team headed to Montreal. You cant get more, you cant get better quality; its just from there, weve got to continue improving our work around the net.We just need to bear down around the net, especially on those rebounds, he continued. Got to make sure we lift the puck up. A lot of them were on pads in the last games. Just have to improve our finishing, thats clear.That includes on the power play, which has converted just twice on 32 opportunities in November. At the other end, however, the penalty kill has been tough to beat, denying all 24 opposing power plays this month. In fact, the Senators (10-7-1) havent allowed a power-play goal against since Oct. 22.Ottawa could get some help on Tuesday night as Mike Hoffman could return after missing the past two games with a groin injury. While the winger was held off the scoresheet in his previous five games, his potential return would be a welcome boost, with the club also forced to play without Bobby Ryan, who has been sidelined since Nov. 8 after suffering an injury against the Nashville Predators.Boucher was hopeful on Hoffman drawing back in but was less certain on Ryans availability for the game.Craig Anderson will get the start in goal. The Senators sent Andrew Hammond down to the AHL after clearing waivers, which means former Canadiens netminder Mike Condon will serve as the back-up against his former team for the second time this season after doing so with the Pittsburgh Penguins back in October.
