OTTAWA -- -- Under new coach Guy Boucher, the Ottawa Senators are determined to tighten up defensively this season. Babe Ruth Jersey .Their first attempt, Wednesday night at Canadian Tire Centre against the Toronto Maple Leafs, didnt turn out very well.The Senators, who allowed a league high 32.8 shots per game during the 2015-16 campaign, scored a 5-4 overtime victory over the Leafs despite being outshot 38-30. Goalie Craig Anderson was unbeatable to everyone except center Auston Matthews, who became the first player in NHL history to score four times in his debut.Anderson will be in goal again Saturday night when the Senators host the Montreal Canadiens.We know we have to allow less shots, said Boucher, who blamed the high total by the Maple Leafs on four penalties taken by his team. We need to improve that. We were on our way to doing it but when you lose that much momentum because youre on the penalty kill all the time and they get shots, thats gone down the drain.The Canadiens, who defeated the Buffalo Sabres 4-1 in their season opener Thursday, will remain on the road for their second game. Once again they will be without star goalie Carey Price, who is battling what the team calls a severe case of the flu.Goalie Al Montoya, who stopped 30 shots in Buffalo, will be back between the pipes for the Canadiens.Guys had the right mentality, Montreal captain Max Pacioretty said of the one-for-all approach in Prices absence. Guys sticking up for each other, a lot of selfless plays out there, some blocked shots, taking hits to make plays. Thats our motto for this team no matter who you are in the lineup.The Canadiens are expected to be bolstered by the return of defensemen Jeff Petry, who missed the opener with a knee injury.Montreal was concerned it would be without forward Andrew Shaw, but the league decided against any supplemental discipline for his slew foot on Sabres forward Johan Larsson.Canadiens coach Michel Therrien said Shaw will meet next week with general manager Marc Bergevin and NHL Department of Player Safety head Stephane Quintal for education.At the same time, Therrien said Shaw is an intense player and you want to make sure he doesnt lose that edge.The Senators will go with the same lineup they used against Toronto, which means defenseman Thomas Chabot, the teams first round selection in 2015, will be a healthy scratch for the second game in a row.Boucher said that Chabot will play in one of the teams back-to-back games next week, either in Detroit Monday or back in Ottawa against Arizona on Tuesday. At some point, the Senators have to decide if theyre keeping Chabot or sending him back to his junior team.Its not a developmental league, its a performance league, said Boucher. He will need to play to see if hes ready. If hes ready hell stay, and if hes not ready he wont stay. Brandon McCarthy Jersey .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Ozzie Albies Jersey . General manager Jarmo Kekalainen told Aaron Portzline of The Columbus Dispatch on Friday that he wants to see Gaboriks contributions go beyond the scoresheet before considering a long-term deal for the soon-to-be unrestricted free agent. http://www.thebravesteamshop.com/Braves-Chipper-Jones-Kids-Jersey/ . Los Angeles star goalie survived those perilous gymnastics with no problem, and he eventually backstopped the Kings to a skid-snapping win. Quick stopped 27 shots in his return from a 24-game injury absence, Jeff Carter scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:55 to play, and the Kings snapped their five-game losing streak with a 3-1 victory over the Vancouver Canucks on Saturday night.Valencia have climbed up the La Liga table in recent weeks following three straight wins, including a 2-1 victory over Barcelona the Nou Camp. The change in form comes soon after the departure of Gary Neville, who was sacked as head coach after just three wins in 16 league games.His former assistant, Pako Ayestaran, has replaced him, and he told Sky Sports Guillem Balague what he thinks went wrong for Neville and how he has helped turn things around... Communication the keyOne of the main problems to get through to the players is communication. A few weeks ago, I was with a Spanish football head coach who has been really successful. He told me that he wouldnt go to a foreign country again without mastering the language. To get to the players you need the language and thats crucial. That could be one of the changes that has improved the level of the players Pako Ayestaran Its important and I am sure the problem with Gary was not a lack of knowledge, he has knowledge about the game.He has to put that into practice but to get to the players you need the language and thats crucial. That could be one of the changes that has improved the level of the players.All about self-beliefEverything changes with the way you are working and the belief that the people in charge show to the players. I think when you are in a bad run of results, your self-confidence and belief affects the way you train, your determination and performances.As soon as we changed the belief and self-confidence, the way the players approach the training sessions and daily basic challenges, then everything has been changing little by little. Guillem Balague chats with Graham Hunter about the futures of Ronaldo and Neymar as well as Barcelona’s financial struggles Change of mentalityWhen people arrive at clubs in bad runs normally the first thing they look at is the conditioning of the players, but most of the time that is not the main problem. Julio Teheran Jersey. . Normally it is a lack of belief, lack of togetherness, lack of professionalism, lack of respect, or lack of ambition.As soon as you address all these main problems that affect the way players come to training, then everything starts changing. I say to players they have a daily challenge: to do the best work you can in every session, on every task, do it with enthusiasm and for the benefit of the team, because everything you give to the team you will get back. Also, you must overcome difficulties.Watch Valencias La Liga match at Getafe, live on Sky Sports 2 HD from 5.10pm on Sunday. Also See: Ronaldo: To sell or not to sell?
