Its halfway through the season and there has been some interesting storylines so far in the crease. Jonathan Ogden Womens Jersey . We have had some unreal performances, some guys getting an opportunity to show their stuff at the NHL level and some players still looking for their A game. Lets begin with the obvious: ALL WORLD Pekka Rinne (29 wins, 1.96 GAA, .931 SV%) - the best player in the league and could be a front runner for Hart Trophy, not just the Vezina. And anyone who believes that a goalie should not be in the Hart conversation because they have their own award, remember that players have those individual awards as well (Richard Trophy, Art Ross, Ted Lindsay). GREAT SEASONS - Goalies who are having great seasons and deserve some love Roberto Luongo (17 wins, 2.32 GAA, .924 SV%) - Main reason why Florida is not a bottom feeder team and we are not just talking about them having a bright future. Carey Price (22 wins, 2.19 GAA, .928 SV%) - Model of consistency, elite goalie, elite play every night for the Habs. Numbers through the roof this year. Sergei Bobrovsky (15 wins, 2.88 GAA, .914 SV%) - Blue Jackets struggled mightily without him when he had a broken finger. Now he is healthy and they have made a push to climb the standings. Ben Bishop (21 wins, 2.41 GAA, .909 SV%) - Continues to play well for a real good team Jaroslav Halak (23 wins, 2.22 GAA, .917 SV%) - Really helped stabilize a position the Islanders have been really missing Marc-Andre Fleury (22 wins, 2.16 GAA, .926 SV%) - Outstanding for the Penguins amidst a team that has been decimated by injuries and sickness. Was snubbed for the All-Star game, although he may get there if the injury to Howard is serious. Jhonas Enroth (11 wins, 3.20 GAA, .906 SV%) - Numbers are not reflective, but he has been outstanding for a team that has tried to bottom out during a rebuild. Has been great in the shootout and at 510 the smallest goalie in the league has stood tall. Frederik Andersen (23 wins, 2.36 GAA, .915 SV%) - Been real good for a top team that has had injuries and sickness as well, but they have played him a ton. Needs a few nights off in the second half so well see if Bryzgalov is the answer. Braden Holtby (21 wins, 2.23 GAA, .923 SV%) - Has had a resurgence under new goalie coach Mitch Korn. Jimmy Howard (16 wins, 2.11 GAA, .920 SV%) - Pillar of consistency, large workload and delivered wins for Detroit Corey Crawford (17 wins, 2.15 GAA, .924 SV%) - Voted in by fan base, shows every year why the guys in the room value him when the chips are down TURNED THE CORNER Henrik Lundqvist (20 wins, 2.31 GAA, .917 SV%) - After slow start (which he is becoming known for), he has rounded into form and the Rangers are on fire because of his work. Some may even use the word snub when it comes to the All-Star game. Tuukka Rask (18 wins, 2.49 GAA, .913 SV%) - Has dug out after a real slow start for himself and the team. OPPORTUNITY Scott Darling (5 wins, 1.97 GAA, .937 SV%) - Great story of local boy who does well. Grew up a Hawks fan and got the call when Crawford got hurt. A 6 6 goalie who has played in the minors for years was getting starts in front of Antti Raanta, who was struggling to find his game early on. Rob Zepp (2 wins, 3.00 GAA, .885 SV%) - At age 34, gets his NHL opportunity after years of playing in the minors. Seizes it for a few wins for the Flyers, who are in desperate need of wins and stability in net. Calvin Pickard (6 wins, 2.18 GAA, .936 SV%) - With injuries to Semyon Varlamov and terrible play of Reto Berra, has kept the Avalanche close to a playoff spot while Varlamov recovered and got back to his top form. Andrei Vasilevskiy (3 wins, 1.76 GAA, .937 SV%) - Will be a starter in the NHL sometime. Tampa is doing it the right way, allowing him to develop in the AHL. NIGHTMARE Mike Smith (7 wins, 3.52 GAA, .885 SV%) - was on the Olympic team last season, has been the backbone of the Coyotes for years and a big reason why they have had some success in the desert. But it has been the worst start of his career, looks like a shell of his former self and has to find his game quick or the Coyotes will be in the McDavid sweepstakes. Ben Scrivens/Viktor Fasth (8 wins, 3.05 GAA, .896 SV% /2 wins, 3.47 GAA, .886 SV%) - Or anyone who is playing in net for the Oilers - a team that refuses to play hard in their own zone. Scrivens has carried the bulk of the load and is in over his head most nights. Kari Lehtonen (17 wins, 2.95 GAA, .904 SV%) - Dallas is another team that can score but not a lot of attention is paid to keeping it out of their net. They rely heavily on their goalies to win them games and Lehtonen has been allowing one stoppable puck a night. Needs to lock it down if the Stars have a chance of making the playoffs. Minnesota goalies - Unreal start for Darcy Keumper and then, through injuries and inconsistency, it has really gone downhill for not only him, but Niklas Backstrom. The mumps and injuries have hurt the team in front of them, but they cant keep it out of their net right now. COMPETITION Michael Hutchinson (12 wins, 2.00 GAA, .931 SV%) - has been pushed into a more prominent role in Winnipeg and not only pushed Pavelec for minutes in net but has helped the Jets to be in a wild card spot. BOUNCE BACK SEASON Devan Dubnyk (9 wins, 2.72 GAA, .916 SV%) - has worked hard at his game to get back into the NHL, bouncing around from Edmonton to Nashville to Montreals AHL team last season. By the time the playoffs came around, he was their fourth goalie in the system and a lot of people had written him off. He is back and has been the only bright spot in net in Arizona, earning an opportunity to get more playing time in Minnesota. UNDER THE RADAR Craig Anderson (11 wins, 2.35 GAA, .928 SV%) - has been the Senators MVP. His win/loss isnt glorious, but his save percentage has been up with the league leaders all season long. Brian Elliott/Jake Allen (11 wins, 1.95 GAA, .928 SV% /13 wins, 2.65 GAA, .900 SV%) - their team never gets a ton of fanfare out West, but they have been good and continue to rack up wins Ryan Miller (20 wins, 2.48 GAA, .912 SV%) - has 20 wins this season. Mark Andrews Ravens Jersey .B. -- Canadas Rachel Homan opened the Ford Womens World Curling Championship with a 7-5 win over Russia on Saturday. Ben Powers Womens Jersey .

Byrnes says Hoffman "will be a key part of finishing the development of our younger pitchers.East Lansing, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Bragging rights in the Wolverine State once again belong to the Spartans following a blowout win on Saturday. Jeremy Langford ran for 177 yards and three touchdowns as No. 8 Michigan State continued its recent dominance over Michigan with a lopsided 35-11 win. The Spartans (7-1, 4-0 Big Ten) have beaten their in-state rival six of the past seven years by a combined score of 197-101. Connor Cook threw for 227 yards in windy conditions, with a big chunk of that yardage coming on a third-quarter scoring strike to Tony Lippett that essentially made sure the Paul Bunyan Trophy stayed in East Lansing. Even with an extra week of preparation, the Wolverines (3-5, 1-3) managed just 186 total yards to Michigan States 446. One of the two interceptions Devin Gardner threw was returned for a touchdown, and the embattled quarterback completed a mere 13-of-28 passes for 121 yards. The only solace for Michigan came with 3:40 left in regulation, as DeVeon Smith ran for a score to end the Wolverines touchdown drought against the Spartans. It stood at 11 straight quarters prior to the 1-yard plunge. Rather than take a knee and run the clock out after Smiths touchdown, Michigan State gave the ball to Langford seven straight times, and the talented senior punctuated the rout with a 5-yard TD run. The Spartans started off on the right foot as Langford punched one in from two yards out to cap an 8-play, 75-yard opening drive. Their next three possessions, however, resuulted in a punt, a missed Michael Geiger field goal and a turnover on downs, respectively, and their fourth saw Josiah Price lose a fumble at the MSU 32-yard line. Custom Baltimore Ravens Jerseys. The short field helped the Wolverines stagnant offense put points on the board as Matt Wile snuck a 48-yard field goal just over the crossbar with 3:30 left in the opening half. Michigan State ended the half the same way it started, as Langford finished off a balanced attack with a 1-yard plunge over the goal line. Midway through the third quarter, RJ Williamson stepped in front of a Gardner pass and bobbled it for a second before taking it 29 yards the other way for a 21-3 Michigan State lead. Another empty Michigan possession gave the ball right back to the Spartans, and on the first play of the next series, Cook completed a back-shoulder throw to Lippett, who turned his defender around and sprinted down the sideline for an easy 70-yard score.
