GLENDALE, Ariz. - Jaden Schwartz put the exclamation point on a dominant night for the St. Louis Blues.Schwartz completed his first NHL hat trick with 3 seconds remaining to cap the Blues 6-1 rout of the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday night.It was just one of those nights, he said. I was in the slot and the puck was just kind of finding me. Everybody has those games every once in a while and tonight was one of them for me.Jake Allen was strong in goal in his first NHL start in two seasons, finishing with 24 saves.St. Louis Jori Lehtera scored his first career goal and had two assists.David Backes and Alexander Steen each had a goal and an assist, and Vladimir Tarasenko assisted on three goals. Lauri Korpikoski ruined Allens shutout bid with 9:32 left.Backes goal, Lehteras goal, and two of Schwartzs scores came on power plays. St. Louis scored on all four of its power play opportunities.I like the fact we stayed with it right to the end, Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said. We kept coming. Thats the way we have to play. Were a much better team when we dont absorb, we initiate, and I thought we kept initiating the whole game.Schwartz, who also had an assist, made a shot from the point just before the game ended.I didnt think that was going to happen at all, he said. My teammates wanted me to stay on the ice and try to get it. I never had a hat trick, so it was pretty special.Allen had a big game two nights after regular Blues goalie Brian Elliott shut out Los Angeles in a 1-0 shootout loss.Weve had really good goaltending every game weve played so far this year, Hitchcock said. Thats really a good sign. They give us a chance to win every night.Beleaguered goalie Mike Smith had 30 saves for Arizona and has allowed 15 goals in his three games.We didnt move quick enough, move the puck quick enough, check quick enough, all the above, Arizona coach Dave Tippett said. It was a test against a real good team and we did not fare very well.Allen, the AHLs top goalie last season, made his first NHL start since April 21, 2013.Both teams lost key players to injury.St. Louis Paul Stastny, who had four points in three games before Saturday, left with an upper-body injury early in the second period. He was holding his left wrist as he left the ice. Hitchcock said Stastny would not play in Sunday nights game at Anaheim.The Coyotes lost Martin Hanzal to a lower-body injury with 13:21 left in the second period. The Arizona centre had to be helped from the ice.Smith withstood a flurry of St. Louis shots before Arizonas Oliver Eckman-Larsson was called for interference, the games first penalty, with 2:36 left in the first period. Eighteen seconds into the power play, the puck was free in front of the Coyotes net when it glanced in off Backes left skate.After a video review, the goal was upheld, officials ruling that it was not a distinct kick as required to nullify the goal.It was Backes second goal of the young season and the first power-play goal allowed by Arizona. The Blues had a 15-7 advantage in shots in the first period.Backes had another great chance at a goal in the second period when St. Louis had a 3-on-0 advantage, but his wide open shot missed the net far to the left.No matter. St. Louis got two later in the period, on goals by Steen and Schwartz. Schwartz netted his second goal in the third period to make it 4-0.NOTES: Arizona was 10 for 10 on penalty kills before Saturday night. ... The Coyotes have allowed nine first-period goals in their first four games. ... St. Louis has won five straight in Arizona and nine of 11 against the Coyotes. ... Since 2008-09, Backes is the only NHL player with over 300 points and 1,300 hits. ... The Blues played at Los Angeles on Thursday before going to Arizona for Saturdays game. They will head back to Southern California to face the Anaheim Ducks on Sunday. Shoes Outlet Store . On a hot, sweaty day, the Hall of Famer looked cool and comfortable. Air Max 90 Clearance Sale .

Discount Air Max 97 .Y. - Geno Smith still thinks of himself as the New York Jets starting quarterback.(SportsNetwork.com) - Key the classic soundtracks and highlights from NFL Films with Sundays NFC divisional round playoff game between the Green Bay Packers and Dallas Cowboys. Any number from Sam Spence would suffice for this anticipated matchup at Lambeau Field, where the storied Packers and Cowboys will meet in the playoffs for the first time since the 1967 NFL championship, which is more commonly dubbed as the Ice Bowl. Watch the action live on CTV at Noon et/9am pt. Green Bay won that contest on the frozen tundra and is back in the playoffs for a sixth straight season. The Packers captured an NFC North title for a fourth straight season with a 12-4 record and went 8-0 at home. Packers quarterback and NFL MVP candidate Aaron Rodgers threw 25 touchdown passes to no interceptions at Lambeau Field. Rodgers led the Packers to seven wins in the last eight weeks of the regular season and will go toe-to-toe with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. Romo led Dallas to an 8-0 road ledger, throwing for 20 touchdowns to just two interceptions away from home. Sundays playoff game marks the first time a team that finished 8-0 at home during the regular season hosting a team that was 8-0 on the road during the regular season. Green Bay is well aware of Dallas success outside Big D. This will be a big challenge. Its definitely something that jumps off the stat sheet when you see eight wins on the road, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said. McCarthy has led the Packers to the playoffs in seven of his nine seasons at the helm. Packers defensive back Micah Hyde isnt as impressed with the road success. We dont pay attention to them being 8-0 on the road because they havent come here and beaten us here at Lambeau, but its going to be a tough matchup and we understand that. Nobody entered Lambeau Field and escaped with a win this season. Whether it was at Lambeau Field or elsewhere around the league, Rodgers played as well as any quarterback in the NFL. He threw for 4,381 yards with 38 TDs to just five INTs. There was a five-game stretch from Nov. 9 - Dec. 8 in which he recorded 16 touchdown strikes to zero interceptions. Rodgers, who set an NFL single-season record with a 133.2 passer rating at home, is dealing with a calf injury and is not concerned about it. The rhythm is established, the play style is established, Rodgers said. Its really working on the checks and kind of going through the plan. Thats why you need to practice. He has 477 straight pass attempts and 38 touchdown passes in a row without an interception at home, including the postseason. Rodgers doesnt get enough credit for extending plays and has two 1,000-yard receivers in Jordy Nelson (1,519) and Randall Cobb (1,287). Running back Eddie Lacy ran for 1,139 yards. Nelson had 13 touchdown catches, Cobb recorded 12 and Lacy combined for 13 (9 rushing, 4 receiving). Meanwhile, the Cowboys edged the Detroit Lions, 24-20, last Sunday in a Wild Card matchup at AT&T Stadium. They got some favorable calls from the officials and erased an early 14-0 hole to move on to the divisional round for the first time since 2009. Its how weve responded all year long, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said afterward. Romo threw for 292 yards with a pair of touchdown passes, none bigger than his eight-yard strike to Terrence Williams with 2:32 left in the game. Williams caught both of Romos touchdown passes. Dez Bryant, who led the team with 88 catches for 1,320 yards and a franchise-best 16 TDs in the regular season, was limited to 48 yards and three catches against Detroits tough defense. Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was at it again versus the Lions with 75 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. Murray is deserving of an MVP nod and led the NFL in rushing with a team-record 1,845 yards and 12 100-yard games. Murray was tied for the league lead in rushing scores with 13 and opened the season with eight straight 100-yard games for Dallas, which was second overall with 147.1 rushing yards per game. Sundays expected frigid conditions will either bring out the best in Murray, who is still dealing with a broken hand, or humble the tough runner. Either way, the Packers will be tested early on. The Dallas Cowboys run game is excellent, McCarthy said. Murray is a big- time back. Hes definitely a difference-maker. Hell definitely be a focal point for us. McCarthys Packers defeated the Cowboys, 37-36, on Dec. 15, 2013, as Lacy scored the go-ahead touchdown on a one-yard plunge with 1:31 remaining in the fourth quarter. Lacy had 141 yards on 21 carrries, while Murray ran for 134 yards and a score on 18 touches.dddddddddddd Romo threw for 358 yards to go along with two TDs and two INTs. Bryant caught 11 passes for 153 yards and a score. Rodgers did not play in that one because of a fractured collarbone. Dallas and Green Bay will meet for the seventh time in the postseason, where the Cowboys have won the last four matchups. The Cowboys lead the all-time series by a 16-15 count, including the playoffs. The Packers are 9-4 versus the Cowboys at home, including postseason play. Green Bay, which has won 13 NFL titles, is 16-5 all-time at home during the postseason, while Dallas has a 34-25 mark overall in the playoffs. WHAT TO WATCH FOR The weather conditions should have zero effect on the outcome of this game, unless its a blizzard. Still, players will be out on the field in short sleeves braving the cold, mostly the offensive and defensive linemen. Its probably going to be cold there. I have a pretty good feeling about that, Garrett said. Whatever the numbers say, we have to deal with those elements. Thats what happens when you go up to Green Bay this time of year. Keeping warm is key and both offenses have the talent and speed to break a sweat. Both secondaries will be tested, none more than the Cowboys defensive backfield. Cornerbacks Brandon Carr and Orlando Scandrick, and safeties Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox have to slow down Nelson and Cobb. The Cowboys did a nice job on Detroit star wideout Calvin Johnson, who had 85 yards on five catches and no touchdowns. Now they have their hands full with Nelson and Cobb. The duo became the first teammates in league lore to post at least 1,200 yards and 12 receiving TDs in the same season. This is a fun team to be on and the guys believe in each other, fight for each other and we stick together, Rodgers said. Winning the division was important as was getting that home playoff game. Were 8-0 at home so we want to keep that streak alive. This is what we love to do. I love the competition. Were all passionate about this game. The Cowboys have to pressure Rodgers and keep Lacy from setting the tempo. Rodgers can do that on his own and it will be lights out if he has the time to sit back and pick apart the defense (just ask Philadelphia). The Cowboys sacked Matthew Stafford three times last week. Jeremy Mincey had a sack and led the team with six. Mincey and linebacker Rolando McClain are nursing head injuries, while linebacker Anthony Hitchens is dealing with an ankle injury. All three are expected to be ready for this crucial playoff matchup. Green Bay is in the same shoes defensively facing a tough runner and a dynamic wide receiver. The Cowboys proved they can strike when Bryant is having trouble getting open, as Williams burned the Lions twice. Even tight end Jason Witten wasnt a factor. Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers has plenty of respect for Dallas. It starts with their running game. Youve got to be able to play both (run and pass) against these guys. Theyre not a one-dimensional team, Capers said. This is the best test weve had. This will be a challenge. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews led the team with 11 sacks, safety Morgan Burnett had 129 tackles and cornerbacks Sam Shields and Casey Hayward each had three interceptions. Green Bays 3-4 defensive scheme could struggle against Murray, and rookie safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix must be ready for Bryant. Veteran linebacker Julius Peppers plays on the outside and can still wreak havoc in the twilight of his career. He had seven sacks across 16 games. OVERALL ANALYSIS Dallas owner Jerry Jones said New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a rabid Cowboys fan, is a part of the teams mojo. Christie was in the owners box in a huge win against Philadelphia and also last week versus Detroit. Hes part of our mojo, Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. I want him there all the way. Ill tell you, if hes got enough mojo to pull this thing out, he ought to be looked at as President of the United States. The Cowboys have been perfect on the road, but the Packers are unbeaten at home. A black cat, lucky rabbits foot, knocking on wood, crossing fingers or perhaps a wishbone cant save the Cowboys now, and neither will the presence of Christie, who has drawn the ire of the Tri-State area for his rooting interest. May the best team win ... and the Packers will. Its great to be playing at home, we prefer to play here, McCarthy said This is playoff football and everything changes. But this is definitely where we want to play. ' ' '
