MULHOUSE, France -- On a day local Roman Catholics were celebrating the feast of Saint Anthony, two other Tonys had their own reason to celebrate in the Tour de France. Wholesale NHL Jerseys Free Shipping . Germanys Tony Martin took the stage win Sunday, and Frances Tony Gallopin took the yellow jersey during an up-and-down Stage 9 in the eastern Vosges mountains. Martin, a three-time world champion known more for time-trial dominance, showed that he could climb too; Italys Vincenzo Nibali, who has been wearing the leaders yellow jersey, didnt lay a hard enough chase of Gallopin to keep it. French media -- delighted to see the countrys first yellow jersey holder since Thomas Voeckler wore it in 2010 -- reveled in the fact that Gallopin will lead Frances most beloved race on the Bastille Day holiday Monday. The 29-year-old German, meanwhile, said his stage victory might have been an "omen" for Germanys World Cup ambitions against Argentina -- which it turned out to be. Gallopin, of the Lotto Belisol team, said hed been plotting a move for the yellow jersey since Stage 5 -- when he positioned himself for a challenge because Nibali was unlikely to want to hold it all the way to Paris on July 27, when the race ends. Its a lot of pressure to try to carry the leaders shirt so long, through the Alps and Pyrenees ahead. But Nibali knows that Gallopin is unlikely to make it up the big climbs ahead, and the Italian didnt lose any time against his biggest rivals -- highest among them, two-time Tour champion Alberto Contador. Gallopin, by finishing about 5 minutes ahead of Nibali, easily erased his deficit to the Italian and now leads him by 1:34. Portuguese rider Tiago Machado is third overall, 4:08 back. But, like Gallopin, he is not considered a Tour contender. "Its with great pride that I will ride on the national holiday day in the yellow jersey," said 26-year-old Gallopin, adding that he feared he may not keep it after an uphill finish at the super-steep Planche des Belles Filles on Monday. "Its a little bit scary, but I will enjoy the day." "It was always a dream of wearing the yellow jersey," said Gallopin, who finished 2:45 back of solo breakaway leader Martin. Contador finished safely in the main pack along with Nibali and is 4:08 back in ninth place overall. They will resume their contest in the toughest stage so far -- Mondays 161.5-kilometre (100-mile) trek from Mulhouse to the famed La Planche des Belles Filles, featuring four steep Category 1 climbs. The pack takes its first rest day on Tuesday. "It was a tough day," Contador said, looking ahead to Monday. "Well have to decide whether or not we try to attack or ride defensively." The Tour paid tribute to those who died in the First World War -- 1914-18 -- by riding along the battlefields where millions died. Sundays route took the peloton past a landmark remembering the Battle du Linge in 1915, where some 17,000 French and German soldiers fell in three ferocious months of fighting. The groves and thickets in Le Linges mountainous pass helped mask lethal sections of barbed wire protecting tight German defensive lines. Shortly before the days most difficult climb -- a Category 1 ascent of 10.8 kilometres (6.7 miles) up Le Markstein -- Martin broke away, and Gallopins chasing group was about two minutes behind with Nibali more than six minutes adrift. Martin, some 18.5 minutes back, was no threat to Nibalis yellow jersey. Nibali lost more and more ground, and urged his Astana teammates to step up the pace as they reached the last of the climbs -- a short, sharp ascent up Grand Ballon. But they left themselves with far too much to do. Martin, who narrowly beat Tour champion Chris Froome in a time trial last year, continued to surge ahead, with tail winds making for a quick descent down to the finish. The departure of Froome in Stage 5 due to injury has blown the race wide open.

Ales Hemsky scored the only goal of the shootout Monday night as the Senators earned a huge 2-1 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Hemsky moved in and fired a shot off the post and into the back of the net behind goaltender Cam Ward to give the Senators their third straight win, and fourth in their past fifth games. They have nine points over that stretch. As it stands now, the Senators are in 12th in the Eastern Conference four points behind the Columbus Blue Jackets, who currently possess the second wild-card berth with 82 points. The Hurricanes are seven back. "All Im doing is going game-by-game still. We won today, now we have to get ready for Wednesday and again well see where we are at (in) 82 games," said Senators coach Paul MacLean. Craig Anderson stopped all three Carolina shooters, including Elias Lindholm with the final shot to earn the victory. Mika Zibanejad scored in regulation for the Senators (32-29-14) while Anderson made 30 saves. Jeff Skinner had the Carolina goal while Ward backstopped the Hurricanes (32-32-11) through regulation with 28 saves. Coincidental minor penalties in overtime meant the teams played two minutes of three-on-three hockey. Kyle Turris had the best opportunity for the Senators during that span but his shot went over the net. Alex Semin had Anderson beat on a two-on-one but his backhand went wide. "Structure wise we werent really sure what to do, but you need guys that are creative and are able to beat guys one-on-one because thats what it comes down to," Senators defenceman Marc Methot said of the rare three-on-three. "The guys handled it well." There was very little in the way of scoring opportunities through most of the third period. That changed in the final few minutes as both teams started to apply pressure as neither wanted the other to claim a bonus point in the tight playoff race. "There were definitely opportunities and a little spark at the end. The fans started getting into it knowing the pressure of the last five minutes and that any mistake could be in the back of the net," said Hurricanes forward Jordan Staal. "It raised the intensity of the game for sure.&" The way the first period started it seemed as though the goaltenders were going to have nightmares even before they went to bed. Wholesale Adidas NHL Jerseys. The score was tied 1-1 before the five-minute mark and the non-defensive style was allowing for several opportunities on both sides. Zibanejad opened the scoring at 1:41 of the first period when he deflected a Patrick Wiercioch point shot past Ward. The play was reviewed but quickly announced that the call on the ice stood and it was in fact a goal. "Youve got to look at it as a lucky break on their side, and just get ready for the next shot," Ward said of the goal. "The puck was bouncing a little more than I would have liked, but other than that we gave our team a chance to win. Unfortunately, it doesnt feel good to lose in a shootout." Zibanejad continues to improve on his career-high numbers as he now has 14 goals and 29 points in 64 games. "Lately weve been taking it one game at a time. Its cliche but we are. And were doing whatever we can to make sure we get the points," said Zibanejad. "The pressure is not on us, the pressure is on the teams above us and by winning were putting more pressure on them." It wasnt all good news for the Senators though as Erik Karlsson gave the puck away behind his own goal and then was the last player to touch it before it went into the back of the Ottawa goal behind Anderson. Karlsson tried to sweep the puck around the boards behind the net but fanned on his attempt, giving skinner possession of the puck behind the goal. He danced from side-to-side before banking the puck off Karlsson and in to tie the game at the 4:03 mark.
