P.K. Subban Puts A Lid On A Catastrophe.

A potential catastrophe was brewing as the Montreal Canadiens hosted the Calgary Flames on Monday night at the Bell centre.

The Canadiens took a 4-0 lead during the second period with goals from Lars Eller, Michael Cammalleri, Jeff Halpern and Andrei Kostitsyn. Kostitsyn's goal chased Mikka Kiprusoff out of Calgary's net who was brilliantly replaced by Henrik Karlsson who held the fort from that point on.

The Flames started to compete a lot better after the goaltender change. Calgary reduced the score to 4-2 before the end of the second period with goals from Rene Bourque and Jarome Iginla.

Early in the third frame, Ales Kotalik and Alex Tanguay tied the game at 4 as they both scored on Alex Auld in only 1:19. P.K Subban made many defensive mistakes and was a factor in this Flames comeback.

Auld was replaced by Carey Price as both teams played a total of four goaltenders during that game.

The score settled until overtime, and P.K. Subban scored a brilliant goal on Henrik Karlsson with a prefect shot to the top shelf. Subban made another spectacular goal celebration, a signature that bothers quite a few around the league.

The Canadiens will travel and play the Buffalo Sabres tonight. Carey Price is expected to start this one. Montreal has already defeated the Sabres three times this season.

NFL Playoffs: Upsets And More.

The Wildcard weekend was filled with very interesting matches and a couple of upsets. The two previous Super Bowl opponents are already out of the picture!

For the first time in NFL history, a team with a losing record was qualified for the playoffs. The 7-9 Seattle Seahawks were facing the defending champions New Orleans Saints. The match itself was well disputed and both offenses scored at will.

A spectacular 67-yard run from Marshawn Lynch who broke about a half dozen of tackles with only three minutes and a half to go made the difference in this 41-36 Seahawks victory.

The New York Jets faced the Indianapolis Colts in a classic matchup. The Jets finally edged the Colts by the score of 17-16. Jets' head coach Rex Ryan has won his match. Ryan took this match ''personnally'' as he promised a Jets win before the match.

The Philadelphia Eagles took the Green Bay Packers to the limit but fell short in a 21-16 loss. Green Bay was simply too talented for Michael Vick and the Eagles in tis one. Vick tried to upset the Packers in a last minute drive but his last pass attempt fell in the hands of the defense.

The Baltimore Ravens completely dominated the Kansas City Chiefs. The final score of 30-7 gives an accurate indication of the match. A one-sided match where the Ravens' defense completely shut down the Chiefs.

The playoffs will continue this weekend as four matches are scheduled.

The arch rivals Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers will square off in Pittsburgh. I expect a very disputed match between those two exceptional defenses.

The New York Jets will travel to Foxboro as they will face the New England Patriots. New England has blown out the Jets earlier this season and should have an edge on them. I really expect New England to go out on top in this one.

The Seattle Seahawks will continue their unprobable run at the Soldier field in Chicago as they will now face the powerful Chicago Bears. Nobody expects a Seattle victory but who knows?

Finally, the Green Bay Packers will be in Atlanta to face the Atlanta Falcons. Both of these talented teams should give a great match. I have not seen the Falcons play this season but their impressive regular season record speaks by itself. I expect a close and exciting match.

Don't miss out on those four great matches this weekend!

World Junior Hockey Championships Final: Russia Shocks Canada.

The Gold Medal match of the 2011 World Junior Hockey Championship was disputed between Russia and Canada yesterday at the HSBC Arena in Buffalo.

After taking a 3-0 lead after two periods, team Canada looked to be in good shape to win the gold medal. But Russia came back from this deficit as they scored five unanswered goals during the third period to upset Canada by the score of 5-3.

Despite this horrible third period, team Canada disputed a very good tournament. Brayden Schenn led the way with a record-tying performance as he registered a total of 18 points.

Team USA defeated Team Switzerland and won the bronze medal on home ice.
