TORONTO - It may take time for the Toronto Maple Leafs prospect William Nylander to get used to North Americas physical style of Antworten

TORONTO - It may take time for the Toronto Maple Leafs prospect William Nylander to get used to North Americas physical style of hockey. Mario Addison Jersey .Its a different story off the ice, where Nylanders roommate is making sure he enjoys some of the comforts of his native Sweden.Nylander will make his highly anticipated American Hockey League debut Friday when the Toronto Marlies visit the Hamilton Bulldogs. His adjustment to life in Canada has been made easier by Marlies rookie defenceman and fellow Swede Victor Loov, who is living with Nylander in Toronto.Hes cooking food and that kind of stuff all the time so it makes my life easy, said Nylander, the Leafs 2014 first-round pick. Swedish meatballs. Ive been here now three days, had Swedish meatballs like seven times so its good.It has been a whirlwind month for Nylander, who began January playing at the world junior hockey championship in Toronto. Nylander led Sweden with 10 points in the seven games as the Swedes finished a disappointing fourth after cruising through the preliminary round with a perfect 4-0-0 record.Following the tournament, Nylander returned to Sweden and appeared in two games with Modo of the Swedish Hockey League before being summoned by the Maple Leafs to join the AHLs Marlies.We like what weve seen from William through the first half of the year and through the world juniors, Maple Leafs assistant general manager Kyle Dubas said last week. Now its an opportunity for him to come over and get acclimatized to playing in North America.The Leafs had to make a decision on Nylander before Jan. 16. After that he would have needed to remain in Sweden for the rest of the season before being eligible to come to North America.Nylander, who made a switch to centre this season, will likely start Friday on the wing alongside Greg McKegg and Spencer Abbott.For him its about getting back in to the scheme of things and how we do things here as a group and our systems, said Marlies coach Gord Dineen. We have a group thats really bought in lately and were playing a pretty strong team game.We want him to be a part of that and add to it with his skills.For Nylander, who had eight goals and 20 points in 21 games with Modo this season, the biggest adjustment will be the smaller ice surface.Its been good. Getting into it. Getting used to the time difference and everything so its good, he said. It felt like you had more time out there (on the big ice) so it was good. It was different, but now Im back here and already half adjusted to the ice.For me, its just the first time when you get on the North American ice its a bit different, but then after maybe 2-3 days, youre used to it so it doesnt really take that much time to adjust to.Nylander will have to adjust to how and where handles the puck. At the world juniors, playing against his own age group, the 18-year-old was able to cut through the middle of the ice at high speeds and not get hit. That will change in the AHL.I think thats one of the aspects of his game that we want him to improve upon, said Dubas. I think at the world juniors you see he does put himself in positions with the puck where he gets run at and hit a lot. Its not going to take long to take some hits from men where hes going to know not to do it again.Loov, a teammate of Nylanders for parts of three seasons in Sweden, said the teenager will have to make adjustments.On the ice, its a totally different game here. Its more about positioning. Not running around so much in the defensive zone, said Loov, 22, who has 11 points and a plus-5 rating in 38 games this season. It was a big adjustment, but Im working on it.He also had some words of advice for his countryman.Dont hold on to the puck too much cause the guys easily close gaps, thats the biggest thing, Loov said. Heads up because people can run over him, because hes not the biggest guy so heads up and move your feet.Off the ice, Loov is happy to have someone around who laughs at his jokes.Hes a little bit younger than me, you can notice that, Loov said. Hes not that mature, but hes just 18. Hes funny, he likes my jokes, thats the best thing. We just play video games as usual. Then we hang out with other Swedes. Going for dinner. Went to the movies the other day (American Sniper). It was OK. Some of the guys thought it was a really good movie, but nah, just OK.Nylander has added motivation to succeed in North America after watching his good friend and Czech native David Pastrnak get recalled by the Boston Bruins following the world juniors. Pastrnak registered four goals and an assist in seven games prior to the NHL all-star break.The work hes put in, he deserves to be there, said Nylander. Were really close buddies back home so I mean seeing him score makes me happy and inspires me to keep working and hopefully one day Ill get the chance. Even if its not this year, maybe next year. Thats your goal. Luke Kuechly Jersey . The Incheon-based tea, of the Korea Baseball Organization said the deal for the 35-year-old Scott included a $50,000 signing bonus. Scott reached the major leagues with Houston in 2005 and hit 23 homers or more for Baltimore each year from 2008-10. Rashaan Gaulden Jersey . Basketball fans around the globe will be watching as Kobe Bryant makes his season debut - 240 days after tearing his left Achilles - against Toronto, a team he has used as his own personal punching bag. . -- After a year spent travelling the world, Brooks Koepka suddenly is in a position to play a lot more golf at home. LOS ANGELES -- Mr. Game 7 delivered in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final. Justin Williams scored 4:36 into overtime as the Los Angeles Kings rallied to edge the New York Rangers 3-2 in the opening game of the NHL championship series Wednesday night. The winning goal came on a cruel bounce, a sudden end to an evening that had started with so much promise for the underdog Rangers. Dan Girardi fanned on a clearing attempt and the puck ended up at the blue-line with Mike Richards, who found Williams alone in front. Williams, who is 7-0 on the Game 7 stage with seven goals and 14 points, scored high to the stick side to complete a Kings comeback from 2-0 down. It was his first career playoff overtime goal. "Ive said this many times, Justin is the most underrated player on our team by a mile," said Kings defenceman Drew Doughty, who had a roller-coaster night. "He doesnt get enough credit for what he does. "Theres two guys on this team that I want to give the puck to and thats him and Kopie (Anze Kopitar). When they have the puck, plays happen." Added coach Darryl Sutter: "Our best right-winger every night consistently." Williams eighth goal of the playoffs marked the third straight year that Game 1 of the final has gone to OT. Game 2 goes Saturday at the Staples Center with advantage Los Angeles. Teams winning Game 1 have gone on to claim the Cup 77 per cent of the time (57-of-74 series) since the final went to a best-of-seven format in 1939. Benoit Pouliot and Carl Hagelin scored for the Rangers before a crowd of 18,399, the Kings 118th straight sellout. Kyle Clifford and Doughty also scored for Los Angeles, which trailed 2-0 after 15 minutes. "Its a great result for us definitely but we have a lot of things to clean up," said Williams, who has nine points (three goals, six assists) in the last seven games. "Certainly not our best game by any standards especially ours. But we were able to get it done and thats the most important thing." "Weve got a lot to clean up but (we are) happy with the win," said Doughty. After going down early, the Kings tied it up at 2-2 in the second period and then came on like a freight train --outshooting New York 20-3 in the final period. The Rangers held on and then threatened late in a wild ending to regulation time. "I liked the way we played in the first two periods," said Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. "I thought it was a hard-fought first 40 minutes by both teams. "Not quite sure what happened there in the third." New York goalie Henrik Lundqvist and the Kings Jonathan Quick both lived up to their reputations on the night, with Quick busy early and Lundqvist late in an entertaining end-to-end game. "He was the reason why we went to overtime," Vigneault said of Lundqvist. "I mean, he gave us a chance. When you get to overtime, a lot of times its a bounce, its a shot. Tonight they got it." "Our best player tonight," Sutter said of Quick. The Rangers managed 25 shots in regulation time. The shots were 2-2 in OT. "Quick didnt have many saves in the third period, but he had some Grade-A ones," said Williams. The Kings registered 13 straight shots in the third before the Rangers finally forced Quick into action 11 minutes 58 seconds into the period. The Kings werent good early on. New York, which had been off since disposing of Montreal last Thursday, came out buzzing. The speedy Rangers played with a purpose after the puck dropped. It was like little brother taking it to big brother -- they scored some knockdowns but eventually the bigger Kings began to claw back control. The Kings, who edged the Blackhawks in overtime Sunday in Chicago to win the Western Conference crown, finished with 455 hits to the Rangers 33. Bryan Cox Jr. Jersey. "They come at you hard," said Vigneault. "When you make a play, you got to be willing to take the hit to make the play. Thats something we knew coming into the series. "I thought for 40 minutes we handled it real well. Not quite sure what happened in the third there." New York -- the best road team in the East this season with 25 wins -- had two good scoring chances in the first three minutes. Quick had to poke-check Chris Kreider to end one threat and then stopped Hagelin from in front after a giveaway. It was an entertaining start, albeit a sloppy one. Quick was a busy man as the Rangers probed for an opening. New York went ahead at 13:21 when Doughty tried to be cute at the New York blue-line, attempting to drag the puck past an onrushing Ranger and lost possession. Things went from bad to worse when defence partner Jake Muzzin fell down and Pouliot scored to the stick side on the ensuing breakaway. The Rangers made it 2-0 the penalty kill at 15:03 as the Roadrunner-like Hagelin outraced Slava Voynov and headed to goal. Quick made the save but the puck bounced in off Voynovs skate for Hagelins seventh of the playoffs. While the bounce was unfortunate, it was the Rangers second scoring chance on the penalty. Hagelin, who also scored on the penalty kill against Montreal, is the sixth player in Rangers history to record more than one short-handed goal in one playoff year and the first since Mark Messier scored two in 1992. Los Angeles pulled one back at 17:33 on a good forecheck. Derek Stepan failed to clear the puck, turning it over and the Kings crashed the net, with Clifford jamming it in top shelf to revive the Staples Center crowd. It was Cliffords first post-season goal since April 23, 2011, snapping a 37-game playoff drought. The Kings outshot the Rangers 14-13 in a first period that belonged to the visitors. Doughty made up for his earlier turnover with a sweet goal that featured almost the same move that tripped him up before. Taking a nifty Williams backhand pass, a trailing Doughty toe-dragged the puck between his legs to evade Derek Dorsett and then snapped a shot through Lundqvists legs for his fifth of the playoffs at 6:36. While Doughty put on the brakes to score from in close, two Rangers and two Kings jostled on the other side of Lundqvist. It was Doughtys 17th point of the post-season, breaking the club record for a defenceman he set two years ago. Clifford made a fine pass to trigger the attack. On the bench, rugged Kings defenceman Matt Greene got treatment for a nasty gash by his left eye that looked like someone had taken a box-cutter to him. The game was getting nasty with Doughty complaining bitterly he had been butt-ended. Later in the game, he got a penalty for embellishment. The shots were 22-21 for the Rangers after 40 minutes. Both teams have travelled marathon journeys to get here. The Kings played 21 games, a league-record maximum, while the Rangers saw action in 20. The record for most playoff games in a single season is 26, set by the 1987 Philadelphia Flyers and 2004 Calgary Flames. The most by a Cup winner is 25, by the 2006 Carolina Hurricanes and 2011 Boston Bruins. Los Angeles finished 10th overall in the league during the regular season with 100 points, four ahead of No. 12 New York. The Kings are looking to win their second Cup in three seasons while the Rangers are after their first championship in 20 years. It was the Kings first playoff OT win at home since May 6, 2001, against Colorado. NOTES: Celebs at the game included Will Ferrell, Kate Bosworth, Jon Hamm, Ellen Page, Jim Carrey, Matthew Perry, Steve Carell, David Boreanaz, Kevin Connolly, Larry David, Catherine Keener, Spike Jonze, and Flea and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
