TAMPA, Fla. Tahir Whitehead Jersey . -- There are two ways to look at Dale Weise scoring the Game 1 overtime winner for the Montreal Canadiens. From a glass-half-empty perspective, the Habs probably shouldnt have needed the fourth-liner to score after outshooting the Tampa Bay Lightning by more than double in regulation and dominating the play. From a glass-half-full perspective, they can be thankful they spread the scoring around five different players. Thats the kind of depth that can propel a team in the playoffs, and while the power play tops the list of what must improve for Game 2 and beyond in this series, the Habs are confident in the bevy of scoring options they have up and down the lineup. "Its playoffs, I think you see a lot of guys like Weiser, a lot of guys in his kind of role are going to score those big goals in overtime or late in the third period," winger Rene Bourque said. "Its nice, though, we do have depth. We could rotate guys in and out of the lineup from the first to the fourth line." The Habs got goals from the first (Thomas Vanek), second (Tomas Plekanec), third (Lars Eller and Brian Gionta) and fourth line (Weise) in Game 1 on Wednesday night. That kind of scoring balance makes it hard for any opponent to key on one line. "We need contributions from everyone if we want to have success," coach Michel Therrien said. "You need to use and you need to show confidence in all your players when you go to the playoffs." Therrien showed plenty of confidence in his forwards, playing each at least 12 minutes. That includes almost a full extra period because of overtime, but its not like the fourth line of Weise, Daniel Briere and Michael Bournival got benched when the game was on the line. The Habs put 35 shots on net in regulation to the Lightnings 16. That was one reason why defenceman P.K. Subban liked the "structure" of play so much. "I cant remember the last game we outshot a team," Subban said. "For us, structurally, I thought we did a great job." Problem is, the Habs did a great job and still couldnt close the deal. No lead lasted more than four minutes, and they could never take a stranglehold on the game. One reason was that Montreals power-play drought extended to 0 goals in its last 25 chances dating to March 26. Therrien put his team through some power-play work at Tampa Bay Times Forum on Thursday. "Im confident as a coach that it will be more productive," he said. "By working, by communicating, by teaching, this is the way we believe that eventually were going to be better." Subban put the blame on everyone, saying the defencemen need to do a better job of putting the puck in better places for forwards to retrieve it. As for what exactly isnt working, check the scoreboard. "You know what? Were not scoring," Subban said. "Its just not going in for us. If we score, it changes everything." In addition to the power play, the Habs might want to stop giving up as many quality chances as they did. After the 5-4 victory, captain Brian Gionta called the shot total "misleading" because the Lightning had several golden opportunities. Those opportunities, and the goals that resulted, also frustrated goaltender Carey Price. The Habs dont want that. "I think hockeys a game of mistakes and you see yesterday, they capitalized on every mistake we made," Bourque said. "Weve just got to tighten up defensively a little bit more." Players and Therrien expect plenty of adjustments and for this to be a long series that changes as it develops. But even winning Game 1 the Habs know what they cannot continue to do. "If we give up four goals Im not sure were going to win the next game," Therrien said. "There were a few breakdowns that were going to approach with our team to make sure were more solid."

He started with two birdies and added three more on his last five holes at the Oceanico Victoria course for an 18-under total of 266. Brandon Parker Raiders Jersey .During the week, McCoy told reporters he respected Hoyer for his intelligence, athleticism and how he conducts himself on and off the field. This wasnt an act, some attempt at psyching out Hoyer. . The team also announced Tuesday that the Braves will wear a commemorative patch on the right sleeve during the season. The patch, shaped like home plate, carries the number 715, Aarons autograph and a "40th Anniversary" banner.Ravaged by health issues, the Anaheim Ducks havent let that stop them from surging into the NHL lead. A victory over the Edmonton Oilers in their last game allowed them to pad that advantage, and theyll look to keep rolling when they close out this home-and-home series at Rexall Place on Friday night. The Ducks (19-6-5) have already lost 192 man-games to injury - and the mumps - with a quarter of their opening-night roster on the injured list. That includes top-line forward Corey Perry, out until January with a sprained knee. It hasnt prevented Anaheim from winning five in a row to give it the best record in the league. We have a lot of good players on this team, and experience makes players better, center Ryan Kesler said. When guys go down, guys have opportunities, and they make the most of it. We dont let much define us in here when we deal with adversity - or the mumps. Anaheims depth has been the difference - as has its ability to come out on top in close games. The Ducks last 12 victories have come by one goal. Matt Beleskey and Kesler scored and Frederik Andersen made 21 saves to lift the Ducks to a 2-1 victory over the Oilers (7-17-5) on Wednesday. Anaheim dominated play in the first two periods, outshooting Edmonton 27-14 and 34-22 for the game. I think if you want to win championships, you have to be a good defensive team and you have to win close games, defenseman Hampus Lindholm said. We can always be better, but we did enough to get a win. Kesler has four goals and an assist in the past three games, while Beleskeys goal gave him seven in his last 11. Anaheim plays its next five on the road in a stretch that will make it seven away games in an eight-game span. The Ducks are 9-3-2 on the road, where theyve won three of four. Theyve aalso gone 18-3-1 in the last 22 meetings with Edmonton, which is 1-9-4 in its previous 14 overall. Daryl Worley Raiders Jersey. Not helping matters Wednesday was the fact that the Oilers were playing for the second straight night and third time in four days against a Ducks team that had been off since Sunday. We played a good road game, former Anaheim goaltender Viktor Fasth said. (Andersen) was good in net at the other end, but I still think we could have a little more traffic in front of him and make it harder for him. ... Its small things, and we have to look at those small details to become better. Weve got to start winning. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored early in the third period to cut Anaheims lead to one, but Edmonton managed two or fewer goals for the ninth time in 10 games. The clubs 63 goals are the fewest in the Western Conference. Its frustrating for everyone, coach Dallas Eakins told the teams official website. Weve got some guys who have proven they can put the puck in the net, and for whatever reason were just having trouble getting it in there right now. Its something you have to be extremely patient for. It eventually turns, but we need eventually to be now. Fasth made 34 saves in a strong performance and is likely to start again Friday. Though Anaheim has dominated this series in recent years, the Oilers won both meetings in Edmonton last season, scoring four goals each time.
