SOCHI, Russia – In light of another devastating loss to injury, Swedish defender Erik Karlsson need only recall what occurred in Ottawa last season when it seemed a rash of injuries would derail his Senators season. Cedric Ogbuehi Jersey . Only it didnt. Despite losing Karlsson, their no.1 defenceman, Jason Spezza, their no. 1 centre and Craig Anderson, their no. 1 goalie, Ottawa scraped and scratched toward a remarkable season in 2012-13, finishing as an unlikely seventh seed in the Eastern Conference before upsetting the Montreal Canadiens in the first round. And so now despite losing captain Henrik Zetterberg for the remainder of the Olympics with first-rate centre Henrik Sedin and rugged winger Johan Franzen already on the shelf, Sweden is prepared to defiantly march on. Backed by a 26-save shutout from Henrik Lundqvist and a late third period goal from Daniel Alfredsson, they did just that on Friday, edging the Swiss at Bolshoy Ice Dome in a hotly-contested preliminary round battle. "It doesnt really change anything in our mindset," said Karlsson of the Zetterberg absence, following the 1-0 victory against a feisty Switzerland squad. "Weve just got to focus on what we have and we have a pretty good group of guys without those guys as well so we should be able to play some good hockey, even though we miss them a lot." "Every team goes through injuries," added Alex Steen brashly, starting the tournament alongside Zetterberg and Gabriel Landeskog. "Its the same in the NHL as it is in the Elite League as it is in the Olympics, part of the job. Its [the media who] make it a bigger deal." Even without Zetterberg, Sedin and Franzen, the Swedes still boast a fair share of slick skill and talent with Patrik Berglund now alongside Steen and Landeskog and Nicklas Backstrom firing between Daniel Sedin and Loui Eriksson. And with continued excellence from Lundqvist between the pipes and an easy-moving, oft-explosive defence fronted by Karlsson and Oliver Ekman-Larsson, their shot at reclaiming gold for the first time since 2006 remains intact – if not slightly more difficult. "I could just feel my energy went down when I heard the news," said Lundqvist of Zetterberg, who is suffering from a herniated disc. "But at the same time, you have to regroup." Russell Bodine Jersey .She struggled with a hacking cough, she was sick, and she twice celebrated too early, but she held her composure in a 6-3, 7-6 (5) victory on Saturday.On her third match point, she let her racket go before hearing a let call to what she thought was an ace. Shawn Williams Jersey .com) - Matt Beleskey has helped give the Anaheim Ducks some scoring depth and hell look to stay hot on Wednesday night when his club hosts the struggling Philadelphia Flyers. http://www.bengalsauthenticproshop.com/Youth-Giovani-Bernard-Bengals-Jersey/ .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at LeBron James and the Miami Heat winning their second straight NBA championship.After a career in England with Charlton and Leeds, Lloyd Sam has established himself as one of MLS most dangerous wingers. Sam made the move to the Red Bulls in 2012 after his contract at Elland Road was not renewed by then manager Neil Warnock.Since then the England-born Ghanaian international has gone on to win two MLS Supporters Shields in 2013 and 2015, and is now hoping to go one step beyond and win the elusive MLS Cup this season. Ahead of New York Red Bulls trip to face New England this Friday - live on Sky Sports - we asked Sam 10 MLS-related questions to find more out about his American adventure...Hows life in America?Ive been here a while now, for four years, and it pretty much feels like home. Ive always been around American influences and American people, it wasnt hard.My brother went to an American university, so I would always come over. It would often be a holiday destination for me, too.What is it like playing alongside two Englishmen in Bradley and Shaun Wright-Phillips? Sam enjoys playing alongside fellow Englishman Bradley Wright-Phillips When Bradley came over we came from a similar area of south London and it felt like I was even more at home so its good having those guys. I already knew him and Shaun. Theyre very good guys and its good to have them here.Whats New York like as a soccer city? Sam feels the introduction of NYCFC has helped develop an exciting football atmosphere in New York In New York, Id still stay football is not one of the primary sports with all the other big sports weve got such as basketball and American football. But America as a whole, the sport is getting bigger and its catching up with the rest of the world in that way.In New York, the excitement when the two teams play is one of the main things that is different since theyve come in. The stadiums are full and theres a lot of excitement in the air when we play.How would you assess the first month of the season? A classy brace from Felipe saw New York Red Bulls come from behind to win 4-3 against Houston Dynamos Its been tough. Its not the start that we wanted to have, but we won our last game so hopefully we can get our season underway now with a few more wins.Weve got a tough game again on Friday [against New England]. Every team is very personal with us this season, after last year we did really well.We could tell that this was going to be a harder season so weve just got to be turning up to every game and be ready for the battle.How did the move from Leeds to the Red Bulls happpen? Sam was released by Leeds at the end of the 2011/2012 season I was at Leeds but I had just gone on loan to Notts County and I had a pretty good loan. Ryan Hewitt Jersey. I went there, had 10 games and scored five goals.I was expecting to come back to the Championship somewhere, Leeds or somewhere else, I was waiting around for the right offer but it didnt come. Then the New York offer came in, so while I was contemplating things in England, I thought let me see what that is like.They told us to come out and see the place, I saw it and felt right, the rest is history because they had a very good team at the time and Im still here after four years.I never wouldve thought I would be saying that when I first left but Ive got no regrets with my decision.What was it like playing with Thierry Henry? Sam played with Thierry Henry at the Red Bulls That was definitely an experience. He still hadnt lost much, maybe a little bit of speed but his brain may have even been quicker.Hes a very intense guy to be around but it was definitely a fun experience. He would always be around you, his passes, his eyes were everywhere! It was fun to play with him. He had high standards for himself and everyone else. When he was around he just had a presence that hed want you to be on the top of your game whatever you do. Do you ever get starstruck by any of the other players in the league? Kaka is Orlando Citys captain When you have Thierry Henry as a team-mate I dont think you can get starstruck. But there are big players, Kaka was one who I thought OK, this is a player I rate highly. Differences between MLS and the Championship? Sam feels MLS matches the Championship for physicality I wouldnt say there are huge differences. MLS is a very physical league, the Championship is very physical too. Theres a lot of talented players over here and its not that different when I think about it now. Its not that different from the Championship, theres lots of very difficult games and every game anyone can win. Any lesser-known players in MLS viewers on Sky should be looking out for? Lee Nguyen is one of New Englands most dangerous players, according to Sam Every team has got decent players you have to watch out for.Were playing Friday against New England and Ill name one of their players and thats Lee Nguyen, hes a very good player.Hes in the national team now but hes one to watch out for. Collectively theyve got a decent team and people will be surprised [of their quality] if they watch more games.Would you like to finish your career in MLS?Why not? You never know what can happen, but if Im fit why not?
