MONTREAL - Defence was the hot topic for Montreal Impact this week and it was only fitting with the Columbus Crew in town. Derek Sanderson Jersey . The Crew scored nine goals in three games - a pair of wins and a loss - during a recently completed three-game homestand. Now they face an Impact team that is tied with Houston with an MLS-worst 45 goals conceded this season. Listen to the match live on TSN Radio 690 Montreal tonight at 7:30pm et/4:30pm pt. The last-place Impact (4-15-5) face the fourth-place Crew (8-8-9) at Saputo Stadium on Saturday night looking to improve their overall defensive play, not just the back line anchored by veteran Matteo Ferrari. The Impact were feeling good about last week, which started with a 1-0 win at home over Chicago to end a seven-game losing run and a 3-2 victory in El Salvador in CONCACAF Champions League play. But it ended with a 4-2 defeat on the road to the New York Red Bulls that had coach Frank Klopas stressing defence at practice this week. "Weve got to keep working without the ball," said Klopas, whose team left gaping holes for the Red Bulls attack once it relinquished the lead. "The more compact we are defensively, it will make things more difficult for other teams. "Thats why, when we fell behind (to New York), it didnt play to our strengths." Red Bulls star Thierry Henrys brilliance was the main cause for that, as he erased the 1-0 lead Dilly Duka produced with his first goal for Montreal with a prescient header. Henry calmly poked in another and MLS scoring leader Bradley Wright-Phillips added two more around Andres Romeros late goal. Fatigue was a factor with the Impact playing three times in eight days, but defensive lapses have been a problem all season for Montreal. Klopas said when he was named coach last winter that the aim was to allow 10 fewer goals than the 49 conceded in 2013. That objective wont be met, and there are 10 games left in the regular season. And now they face Columbus, which has gifted nine-goal scorer Federico Higuain masterminding an attack that gets goals from many sources, including Ethan Finlay (six goals) and Justin Meram (five). There is also six-foot-seven forward Adam Bedell to contend with. "Players like Henry and Higuain, you cant stop them, you can just try to control them," said Impact captain Patrice Bernier. "You just need to be aware of them on the field and dont let them hurt you." The Impact are 1-5-1 against the Crew, including a 2-1 loss in Columbus in July, in three MLS seasons. The teams are 1-1-1 in Montreal. The Impact hope their game is picking up as the end of the season nears. New designed player Ignacio (Nacho) Piatti was promising in his first week with the club, and 38-year-old striker Marco Di Vaio is finding his range with three goals in his last three games. With Andres Romeo, who has scored in consecutive games, having a solid season at midfield, the Impact see themselves as a better team than their record shows. "I still believe we have a really good team, we just havent got the results this year," said defender Heath Pearce. "And with 10 games remaining in the season, we want to go on a run and put up a significant amount of points." Crew defender Eric Gehrig thinks so, too. "Were not going to look at the points they have or the stats they have," Gehrig told his teams website. "Were going to look at what they have on the field. On their best day, theyre a very good team, one of the best teams in the League." While the Impact have scored only 25 goals in 24 games, second lowest ahead of Chivas USAs 21, they feel that Piattis arrival gives them a dynamic offence. "We have more attacking options, with more players who are dangerous around the goal," said Di Vaio. "The hardest part is to try to control the game now. "If we can stop the other team from scoring, we know now that we can find the goals." The Impact may have Pearce and fullback Eric Miller back from injury to give them extra options at the back. They also signed Nigerian centreback Gege Soriola this week. Romero is to play his 50th game for Montreal. The Crew lost a top player last week when Costa Rican international defender Giancarlo Gonzalez was sold to Palermo of Italys Serie-A. Brad Marchand Jersey . "It feels good, Ive never had one before, not even in College," Hagelin said after the Rangers outgunned the Jets 4-2, behind some solid goaltending from Henrik Lundqvist following a pretty wide open first period. Jake DeBrusk Jersey .Under the agreement announced Monday, the Cuban defector is guaranteed $68.5 million over six seasons.Tomas gets a $14 million signing bonus that is payable within 30 days of the deals approval by Major League Baseball, and then salaries of $2 million next year, $4 million in 2016, $6 million in 2017 and $10 million in 2018. http://www.thebostonbruinshockey.com/kevan-miller-hockey-jersey/ . And fellow Leaf, Jake Gardiner, hiking in Whistler.The Vancouver Whitecaps announced Tuesday that the club has added Italian goalkeeper Paolo Tornaghi to the roster. The move is pending receipt of his International Transfer Certificate and Canadian work permit and visa. "Paolo is a goalkeeper with great size, MLS experience, and a fantastic upbringing within the Inter Milan youth system," said Whitecaps FC head coach Carl Robinson in a statement. "I brought him in because I want to have three good goalkeepers on the roster and I expect him to push David Ousted and the already talented pool of goalkeepers that we have." Tornaghi, 25, joins Whitecaps FC as a free agent after spending two seasons with Eastern Conference side Chicago Fire. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound goalkeeper started each of his nine regular season appearances with the Fire, accumulating one clean sheet and a 3-4-2 record.  The Garbagnate Milanese, Italy native started the first three matches of the 2012 season for the Fire, which included in a 1-1 draw with Montreal Impact in front of 58,912 fans at Olympic Stadium and a 1-0 win over Philadelphia Union. Tornaghi also appeared in a Lamar Hunt U.S. OOpen Cup match, as well as pair of international exhibitions against Aston Villa and Santos Laguna during his first season in MLS. Jakub Zboril Jersey.  This past season, Tornaghi appeared in six regular season matches with the Fire and recorded victories against D.C. United and San Jose Earthquakes.  Before joining the Fire in 2012, Tornaghi was a member of FC Internazionale Milano. While on loan from Inter Milan between 2008 and 2011, Tornaghi played two stints with Serie C side Como, where he appeared in six league matches and two Coppa Italia matches. Tornaghi also played the 2009-10 season on loan with northern Italian side Rimini, where he appeared in two league matches and one Coppa Italia match.  At the international level, Tornaghi has represented his native Italy at every level from U-16 to U-20 and was part of the Azzuri side that participated in the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship, where he appeared in two matches. Tornaghi obtained his permanent residency status (green card) from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services in September and therefore counts as a domestic player in MLS.
