Coyotes get 1st win, beat Flyers in OT after blowing lead
The struggling Arizona Coyotes finally got their first win of the season — but it sure didn’t come easy.
Alex Goligoski scored late in overtime after the Coyotes blew a two-goal lead in the final minute of regulation during a 4-3 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Monday night.
Receiver K.J. Hill said Barrett’s calmness keeps the Buckeyes cool, and, yes, he does cut loose sometimes.
We definitely got a smile out of him. A little dance moves in the locker room, Hill said.
For Dallas, given the locations and the toughness of its opponents in those six games, lacking the rushing and receiving threat that is Elliott could make for a big negative swing. The Cowboys could win all six with Elliott. Without him, the over/under for Dallas victories is two.
A 4-3 record typically would be an indication of a mediocre team that has a questionable chance at a deep playoff run. That’s not the case for the Cowboys, who still have that chance with their defense starting to play well. But the physical and emotional blow of having Elliott pulled from the lineup could rein in the hot play of quarterback Dak Prescott and that defense at the worse possible time.
He almost threw a handful of interceptions in the drives preceding his airmail to end the game. The struggles aren’t all on the rookie. He’s playing with a bevy of third-fiddle pass-catchers who can’t uncover from defensive backs and don’t have needed chemistry with the young quarterback.
Bears fans can gripe about the four points lost on the overturned play. What Chicago can’t complain about is missing out on seven first-half points with a missed field goal and a Saints field goal turning into a touchdown after an offside penalty.
For his first seven games as a Celtic, he is averaging 21.7 points and 5.7 assists.
He’s leading our team in steals right now. I’m kind of upset about that because he’s got bragging rights over us, Terry Rozier said. He’s been doing a good job. He’s been playing great offensively and defensively.
Hield missed 7 of 9 shots and scored four points at Indiana.
Boston and Sacramento split their two-game series last season, but the Celtics have won nine straight against the Kings at TD Garden. The Kings are 5-1 in the last six vs. the Celtics on their home floor.
The key may be Love, who sat out the Oregon State game with an ankle injury and is questionable for Saturday’s game against the Cougars.
He’ll probably be a game-time decision, Shaw said Tuesday. He feels better this week than last week, but he’s probably still not ready to practice.
The Cardinal still lead the nation in yards per rushing attempt (7.25), but that is mainly because Love averages 10.27 yards per carry. Without him, Stanford rushed for a season-low 81 yards against an Oregon State defense that ranked 100th in the country.
He really brings something that no one else can, said Stanford defensive tackle Harrison Phillips. He’s going to win the Heisman this year. He should, no questions asked. So not having that player in there we’re not at our 100 percent best. He was missed, and we’re very thankful we’re going to get him back soon.
Part of his devolution can be attributed to the struggling running game, but as the Giants game exposed, Siemian’s mistakes are usually of his own making. Against one of the more vulnerable Chiefs defenses in recent years, a unit missing Eric Berry, will Siemian be able to get back on track?
I think we lost our intensity, to be honest, Ball said. We need to stick to what’s working. We got away from it. We started playing conservatively a little bit, and when our defense goes down, so does our offense.
We didn’t show up the first half, for whatever reason, Casey said. We found a way to pull together, but the Lakers did a good job of punching us in the mouth there.
Siakam continued to take advantage of extensive playing time made available by the injury absences of Valanciunas and Nogueira. After scoring 20 points against the Warriors on Wednesday, Siakam went 8 for 10 from the field and grabbed five rebounds.
As for the future, Garoppolo, like the aforementioned Cousins in Washington, heads into free agency after the season. There’s therefore no long-term guarantee, but this isn’t the type of move Shanahan & Co. would make if they didn’t believe in Garoppolo as their future under center.
Boston lost opening night in Cleveland and then the next night at home to the Milwaukee Bucks. But things have changed since, and Irving has overcome some shooting problems and also more than helped out on defense as the Celtics have held all five opponents under 100 points — matching the longest such defensive stretch in the coaching tenure of Brad Stevens.
I felt like I had to adjust to them, Irving said of his new teammates. That was probably the biggest thing. Coming in and even playing pickup with those guys, they have a team-oriented-at-all-times vibe and culture here, and I had to be able to adjust my individual talents to the greater good of the group.
I feel that has been going a lot better than even I expected because of the guys that we have in this locker room. They make it a lot easier.
Said Stevens: You can tell he’s getting more comfortable every time he takes the floor.
