after trading for centre Sam

  • After two full days off, the Montreal Canadiens were back to work with a light 45 minute practice as they continue to wait for their opponent in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Alex Smith Redskins Jersey . Having a rest at this time of year is a luxury every team would love to have, but some fans are worried that this break might kill the momentum the Canadiens gained after sweeping the Tampa Bay Lightning.  However, those concerns are not shared in the Habs locker room.    "I feel like I ended the series on the right note and that will carry over to the second round,” Max Pacioretty told the media. “Im completely stress free right now and its nice to have a little bit of a mental vacation." The players are viewing this break as a mini training camp, elevating the intensity level every day. The Canadiens will welcome back Travis Moen for the second round of the playoffs. Moen was sidelined with a concussion after a fight with Bruins defenseman Kevan Miller back on March 24. The veteran is part of the teams leadership group and plays a key role on the Habs penalty kill. He also brings plenty of experience in the playoffs, having already won a Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks back in 2007. Now, the challenge for Michel Therrien will be to figure out where Moen might fit in his lineup. "Its always tough to take someone out of the lineup, so we arent quite sure where we are going right now," the Habs bench boss said.  Therrien will wait until his second round opponent is confirmed before he gets into his lineup.  At the moment he said his focus is to make sure that his players keep their conditioning levels up during this break. Dexter Manley Jersey . Since coming to the big leagues in late May, La Stella is 6 for 7 with the bases loaded, driving in 13 runs in those at-bats. DaRon Payne Youth Jersey . "Uuufff," was all shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria could come up with after Stantons latest mammoth shot.GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Arizona Coyotes made their big off-season move before the free agency period started, trading for a playmaking centre to replace the one they lost. Once they could sign free agents, the Coyotes filled a couple of holes. Arizona signed centre Joe Vitale to a three-year contract and goalie Devan Dubnyk to a one-year deal on Tuesday, adding depth two days after trading for centre Sam Gagner. "This was pretty much what we hoped to get accomplished," Coyotes general manager Don Maloney said. Arizona initiated a buyout of Mike Ribeiros contract on Friday after last years big signee didnt pan out in his one season in the desert. The Coyotes quickly filled his spot, landing Gagner and right wing B.J. Crombeen on Sunday in a trade that sent a draft pick to Tampa Bay. Adding Vitale gives Arizona a gritty faceoff specialist who can offset the loss of Jeff Halpern and possibly anchor the fourth line. Vitale spent his first four NHL seasons in Pittsburgh, scoring eight goals with 27 assists in 163 career games. Wes Martin Redskins Jersey. "We like the energy and physicality that hes going to bring," Maloney said. "Were all about details. Hes got a lot we like." Arizona had little shot of re-signing backup goalie Thomas Greiss, who signed with Pittsburgh so he could have a chance at more playing time. The Coyotes took a little bit of a risk in signing Dubnyk. He was Edmontons starter to start last season, but was traded to Nashville and eventually ended up in Montreals system after being waived. The Coyotes are hoping to resurrect his career behind goaltending coach Sean Burke, who had success with two other big goalies, Ilya Bryzgalov and current starter Mike Smith. "You look at our history, weve had good luck helping that bigger goalie find his game," Maloney said. The Coyotes are still in talks with right wing Radim Vrbata. He has been a consistent scorer in five seasons with the Coyotes, but became a free agent on Tuesday and reportedly has several potential suitors. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL JerseysCheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
