    ANAHEIM, Calif. Brooklyn Nets Jerseys . - After 44 frustrating minutes of scoreless hockey against the stingy Minnesota Wild, only one thought came to Andrew Cogliano when he broke in alone on goalie Darcy Kuemper.Yeah, Id better score now, the speedy Ducks forward said.Cogliano did it, and Corey Perry did it again later in the Ducks dynamic third-period rally.Cogliano ended Minnesotas season-long shutout streak with a short-handed goal early in the third, and Perry got the tiebreaking goal with 8:25 left in the Ducks 2-1 victory over the Wild on Friday night.Frederik Andersen made 27 saves in the fourth consecutive victory for the Ducks, who won their home opener by capitalizing on two late chances in a game frequently dominated by the Wild.But Devante Smith-Pelly forced a turnover and Cam Fowler got the puck ahead to Cogliano, who buried a backhand for the first goal allowed all season by the Wild and Kuemper, who set the franchise record for consecutive scoreless minutes.We just caught them in a bad sequence, Cogliano said. Their team is really tough to play against. Defensively, they dont give you much at all. You have to exert pressure on them to get anything, and we finally did that.Perry then put the Ducks ahead when Jason Zuckers pass went off rookie Matt Dumbas skate and straight to the former league goal-scoring champion, who eventually scored his fifth goal in five games on a rebound.The Ducks hung on for their seventh win in eight meetings with Minnesota, but only after a game-ending scrum that suggested a brewing rivalry for two of the Western Conferences top teams.I know (Kuemper) had some shutouts coming into this game, and we had to work hard to get pucks behind him, said Andersen, who improved to 24-5-0 in his short NHL career. It took a while, but we eventually did it. We have a really good group, really resilient.Zucker scored and Kuemper stopped 24 shots for the Wild, who had the last five days off after beginning the season with back-to-back shutouts of Colorado. Minnesota hadnt missed a step in its return, but Andersen made several enormous saves in the first two periods before the Ducks beat Kuemper late.That short-handed goal doesnt help, Minnesotas Zach Parise said. We were in pretty good control of the game until then. A couple of mistakes on our part, and that was it. I dont think the game got away from us at all.Kuemper played a club-record 163 minutes, 46 seconds of scoreless hockey before Coglianos goal, which prevented the Wild from becoming just the second team in NHL history to open a season with three consecutive shutouts.Its hard to be too upset right now, Minnesota coach Mike Yeo said. You want to win the game, but for the most part, we were playing a great game. There empty nets and opportunities that were bouncing off our sticks. ... We just need to bury those chances.The Ducks played the Wests final home opener after going 3-1 on an impressive season-opening trip. A sellout crowd watched beneath the Ducks second straight Pacific Division title banner.Clayton Stoner faced the Wild for the first time since the defenceman left Minnesota as a free agent last summer for a $13 million deal with the Ducks, but his misstep led to the Wilds first goal.After a scoreless first period, Zucker skated past a stumbling Stoner and scored his second goal in three games. Zucker was born in nearby Newport Beach and grew up in Las Vegas.Late in the second period, Kuemper broke Niklas Backstroms franchise record of 157 minutes, 44 seconds of scoreless play.NOTES: Recently retired ex-Ducks C Saku Koivu attended the game. His brother, Mikko, is the Wilds captain. ... Minnesotas trip concludes Sunday at Los Angeles. The Wilds weird schedule includes just four games in the first two weeks, followed by six games in 10 days. ... Longtime Ducks enforcer George Parros also watched from a luxury suite. ... Forward Chris Wagner made his NHL debut for the Ducks in place of healthy scratch Rickard Rakell. ... New Ducks F Dany Heatley couldnt play against his former Minnesota teammates while missing his fourth straight game with a groin strain. F Kyle Palmieri and D Bryan Allen also havent played this season due to injuries. Jarrett Allen Jersey .C. Now hes squarely in the U.S. capital and helping the Washington Wizards playoff drive. John Wall scored 33 points, Gooden got 11 of his 21 in the final quarter and the Wizards overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit for a 101-94 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday night. Jeremy Lin Jersey .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner.AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- Stan Van Gundy introduced his new general manager Wednesday and then tried to quell any concerns over how the Detroit Pistons would distribute power within their front office. "I think the final decision thing gets overblown," Van Gundy said. "What we want is a collaborative process with a lot of hard-working, intelligent people, who are thinking, and then use the process to come to a decision." Jeff Bower is now the teams general manager, after Van Gundy was hired as coach and team president last month. They both appeared at a news conference, then were available for more informal interviews afterward. Van Gundy was surrounded by reporters almost immediately, and its clear that hes still the face of the franchises next big effort to return to relevance. But Bower brings plenty of experience at the NBA level to his new job. He was the coach at Marist College last season, but hes been a general manager and coach in the pros with New Orleans. "Hes done almost everything at the NBA level," Van Gundy said. "Hes been an assistant coach, hes been a head coach, hes been a scout, hes been an assistant general manager, hes been a general manager, so hes got an experience that really allows him to know the NBA on every level of what goes on in terms of basketball operations." Bower said his coaching experience helps shape the way he evaluates talent. "Being able to see how players change and the impact that you can have on a players game -- aalways kind of kept that thought process in mind, that you can improve players, and that players can get better," Bower said. Sean Kilpatrick Jersey. Bower was the general manager of the Charlotte-New Orleans Hornets from 2001-03 and again from 2005-10. He also coached the team in 2009-10, going 34-39. Bower has also been an assistant coach at Penn State and Marist. Van Gundy said their relationship dates to when Bower was an assistant at Marist and Van Gundy was an assistant at Fordham. "Ive always had a tremendous respect for people who have really had to work their way up the ladder," Van Gundy said. Detroit went 29-53 last season, missing the playoffs for a fifth straight year. That disappointing performance helped lead to the end of Joe Dumars tenure as team president. Van Gundy said he felt the players could have performed better last season, and Detroit does have a young standout to build around in big man Andre Drummond. Greg Monroe is a restricted free agent, so much of the off-season outlook may depend on whether he returns to the Pistons. Detroit does not have a first-round draft pick. That selection was lost because of a trade made by the previous front office, but Bower is hopeful the Pistons can improve themselves in the draft anyway. "The 38th pick can be a pick of value," Bower said. "Although its not a first-round pick, we would hope to be able to dig in and find a prospect that can provide value to the team and to the organization." Youth NFL Jerseys Cheap Disocunt Football JerseysChina Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
