NHL Trends - Back to Back games
by undertherobe on 21 Nov at 09:20
We’re now almost two months into the NHL season and it’s time to take a first look at one of the trends I want to explore during the season which is the impact of back to back games on teams. Back to back games are common in the NHL and all teams will play their fair share of them and it’s how the 2nd game turns out that I want to focus on. Eastern Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Montreal Canadiens 4 0 0 Tampa Bay Lightning 2 3 0 Boston Bruins 0 3 0 Detroit Red Wings 1 0 1 Ottawa Senators 0 2 0 Toronto Maple Leafs 2 1 1 Florida Panthers 0 0 1 Buffalo Sabres 2 3 0 Pittsburgh Penguins 1 0 1 New York Islanders 2 1 0 Washington Capitals 1 3 0 NY Rangers 0 2 0 Philadelphia Flyers 1 3 0 Columbus Blue Jackets 1 4 0 Western Conference TEAM WINS LOSSES OVERTIME LOSSES Nashville Predators 0 0 1 St. Louis Blues 1 1 0 Winnipeg Jets 1 1 1 Chicago Blackhawks 1 1 0 Minnesota Wild 2 0 0 Colorado Avalanche 0 1 1 Dallas Stars 0 3 0 Anaheim Ducks 2 1 0 Calgary Flames 2 0 0 Vancouver Canucks 1 3 1 Los Angeles Kings 1 2 0 San Jose Sharks 2 2 0 Arizona Coyotes 2 1 0 Edmonton Oilers 1 1 0 There are many factors that go into playing on back to back nights. Many NHL teams will rotate their goaltenders and depending on the matchup may play their backup..
A Blue Point of View
by RACHACE on 26 Nov at 19:05
Southampton v Manchester City Sunday 30th November (13:30 ko) Preview Firstly welcome to my blog and my preview on Premier League matches involving my club Manchester City. This week I'll be writing about our 13th Premier League match this season. We travel down to the south coast to take on the very impressive Southampton at St Mary's stadium. As said above, Southampton have been very, very impressive so far this season. During the summer Saints fans had witnessed their side that was so impressive last season ripped apart. The side that managed to finish 8th in the Premier League was decimated as players like Luke Shaw, Dejan Loveren, Callum Chambers, Adam Lallana & Ricky Lambert were all sold to bigger clubs. They also loaned out the likes of Gaston Ramirez, Pablo Osvaldo & Artur Boruc..
Super Sunday: Saints Face Biggest Test Against Man City - The Southampton Perspective
by danbradley on 27 Nov at 09:49
Super Sunday: Saints Face Biggest Test against Man City - The Southampton Perspective Saints are on the tele again this week, however their opponents on Sunday are of a far more fearsome nature. Fresh from beating Champions League favourite Bayern Munich, Man City come to St Marys with fresh confidence and a striker who looks ready to be this year’s Luis Suarez, a player whose individual performances outshine everyone else in the league. Southampton certainly face a difficult challenge but can take heart from a decent record against the Champions since returning to the Premier League a few seasons ago, with a record of W1, D1 and L2. When thinking that Saints actually led for long periods of the first of those losses as well, and were very unlucky to lose, Southampton seem to be a good match for City even..

by Micko70 on 24 Nov at 23:08
The Hennessy Gold Cup is a top class handicap chase that is run at Newbury in either late November or early December. The race is run over 3 miles 2 and a half furlongs and 21 fences will be jumped during the race. Could we see this years Cheltenham Gold Cup winner running in this race, both Bob's Worth & Denman have won this race before winning the Gold Cup, in total 8 horses have won this race before going to glory in the Gold Cup in their careers. I am using 10 trends for this race, they are Age, Weight, Official Rating, Last Time Out, Last Run, Year Runs, Year Wins, Chase Wins, Graded Wins & Distance Any horse passing a trend with 10 gets 5 points, a 9 gets 4 points, an 8 gets 3 points, a 7 gets 2 points..
WEST HAM UNITED v Newcastle United
by redhammer on 26 Nov at 10:27
West Ham United v Newcastle United 29-11-2014. 15.00. The Boleyn. A West Ham Preview Last Time Out Everton 2-1 West Ham United The Game Well hidden but rumors grew on Saturday that West Ham were missing players and indeed they were as Song, Valencia, Kouyate, Sakho and Downing were all ruled out, 5 first choice, not first team, but first choice players were out with the latter (Downing) now in the middle of a row between club and country as legal action is being considered. Nolan returned to the starting eleven which many feared and Carroll started with just 2 minutes of premier league action under his belt this season. We started well and Amalfitano missed a decent chance after good work by Jenkinson, who put in more crosses on Saturday than the whole Arsenal team did later on against Man Utd. However it was..
