Those lessons were more than enough to overwhelm the Utah Jazz. Lou Williams scored 25 points and the Hawks continued their offensive upswing as they rolled to an easy 118-85 victory over the Jazz on Friday night, winning their third straight and for the fourth time in five games. Jerseys NFL Wholesale . - Blake Griffin had 30 points and 12 rebounds, J. . -- New England Revolution goalkeeper Matt Reis is retiring after a 16-year career to become the goalie coach for the Los Angeles Galaxy. SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- If theres kryptonite that affects Minnesota Wild star goaltender Devan Dubnyk, it might be in the form of the St. Louis Blues.On Sunday afternoon, Dubnyk and the Wild get their third crack at the Blues this season and are still looking for their first win. Dubnyk is the hottest goalie in the league of late, leading the NHL in all major statistical categories. But in 17 career starts against the Blues, he is 4-11-2 with a 3.58 goals-against average and .883 save percentage.The Blues come to Minnesota with a 3-1-1 record in December and in the midst of a four-game road trip. They are coming off a 4-1 victory in New Jersey on Friday night which saw defenseman Brad Hunt make his season debut for St. Louis.Hunt was leading the AHL offensively with 29 points in 23 games. Hes likely to stick with the Blues until they get healthier, with defensemen Carl Gunnarson missing the last game with a lower-body injury, and Robert Bortuzzo expected to miss the next six weeks with the same ailment.The knock on Hunt is his size, but at 5-9, 185 pounds, the Blues hierarchy said he compares favorably to one of the Minnesota blueliners he will face on Sunday.Hes taller than (Minnesotas Jared) Spurgeon, and everybody in our league would like Jared, Blue coach Ken Hitchcock said after the New Jersey game, praising his team for their physical play. We played the game that were capable of and we had everybody dug in, playing the same way and we scored goals. The hardeer we check as a team, the more we score. Jerseys NFL Stitched Authentic. he Blues three-goal final margin versus the Devils would be a noteworthy cushion for the Wild, who have played six consecutive one-goal games.All the games are like this. How many times have we had more than a one-goal game? I dont remember, Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said after his team eked out a 3-2 shootout victory over Edmonton on Friday.While hed certainly like his team to find more breathing room, Boudreau likes the demeanor in stressful situations that his team is learning in his first season in Minnesota.But if anything, it teaches you how to be calm in a one-goal game, whether youre up a goal or down a goal, whether youre pushing or protecting, Boudreau said. So, I mean, I think its good experience and good help for everyone.While the Blues are dealing with a banged-up blue line, Minnesota looks to be getting healthier. Theyve played six games without Christian Folin, who is dealing with a lower-body injury. Folin, though, began skating in practice and participated in warm-ups prior to the Edmonton game. Its a good bet he will be back on the ice to face the Blues.It will also mark Mike Yeos return to Xcel Energy Center for the first time since the Wild fired him last February. Yeo was Minnesotas coach for four full seasons, and is now Hitchcocks top assistant in St. Louis. Cheap Jerseys Online China NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Autographed Jerseys Discount NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Online Discount Jerseys Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China China Jerseys Cheap Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Youth NFL Jerseys China Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL T-shirtsChina Jerseys Wholesale ' ' '
