GLENDALE, Ariz. Jonathan Toews Jersey . -- Mike Smith stopped 29 shots for his first shutout of the season, Antoine Vermette had a power-play goal in the first period, and the Phoenix Coyotes beat the Vancouver Canucks 1-0 on Thursday night. In a game full of penalties and killed power plays, the Coyotes got stellar goaltending and just enough offence while the Canucks continued to struggle on the offence. Phoenix also got a break on a reviewed goal in the third period. Vancouver lost for the eighth time in nine games as an apparent goal from captain Henrik Sedin near the midpoint of the third was waved off after a replay review. Smith stopped Kevin Bieksas shot but the rebound came to Sedin, who knocked the puck into the net with his body. The Canucks have one goal in their last three games and lost all three on their road trip to Southern California and Arizona. Still, Vancouver had a chance to draw even after a high-sticking double-minor against centre Martin Hanzal. The Canucks were on a power play for all but the last 4 seconds of the game, with six attackers for the final minute, but failed to score. The teams combined for five power plays in the first period, three for the Canucks and two for the Coyotes. Phoenix scored on its second man-advantage situation with 7:09 remaining in the period. Keith Yandle faked a shot from the point and passed to Vermette in front of the red line almost directly to goalie Eddie Lacks left. Vermette took the tough-angle shot and the puck glanced off a Canucks defender and past Lack. Earlier, Lacks reflexes kept the game scoreless when he turned away a good opportunity for Oliver Ekman-Larsson at the 6:18 mark. The Canucks started the second period on a power play that didnt produce results. Daniel Sedin had an open net 4:32 into the period, but his shot sailed high and over the goal. The Coyotes had a 3-on-1 chance with just over 8 minutes left in the second, but Lack stretched out to stop Radim Vrbatas shot and the Canucks cleared the puck, to the delight of a large contingent of blue-clad Vancouver fans inside Jobing.com Arena. Ekman-Larsson hit the post with a shot with 24 seconds left in the period and the Coyotes on their fifth power play of the game. Vancouvers penalty minutes were an improvement from the 142 combined from the Canucks previous two games. The Canucks had several good chances in the third period but Smith turned them away each time, including a save on Brad Richardsons wrist shot with no defender in front of him at the 1:20 mark. NOTES: The Coyotes improved to 16-7-3 this season when scoring first. ... Phoenix waived D Rostislav Klesla before Thursdays game, and activated D Zbynek Michalek from injured reserve. It was the first game action for Michalek since Dec. 17 at Montreal, when he suffered a lower body injury. ... Canucks G Roberto Luongo missed his sixth straight game with an ankle injury. ... Phoenix and Vancouver meet twice more this season, once in each city. Jordin Tootoo Jersey . The three goals bring Messis career tally for Barcelona to 371 in all games -- including friendlies -- breaking the club record of 369 held by Paulino Alcantara since 1927. The 26-year-old Messi was already the clubs all-time leading scorer in official games.

"I dont believe she has an injury," Hobart tournament director Mark Handley said. http://www.officialblackhawksauthority.com/brent-seabrook-blackhawks-jersey-c-11/ .Y. -- The Buffalo Bills will head into the regular season short on experience at quarterback after trimming the roster on Friday.VANCOUVER - Carl Robinson is the new head coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps. The 37-year-old Welshman takes over after spending the last two seasons as an assistant with the Major League Soccer club. "Its a very proud moment for me to be here today," Robinson said at his introductory press conference. "Its something that I have always dreamed of doing and its the natural progression for me in my career." Robinson replaces Martin Rennie, who was fired in October after Vancouver failed to make the playoffs. The Whitecaps fourth coach since the club joined MLS in 2011, Robinson will have full autonomy over personnel decisions. "Its a task Im looking forward to. I know Im going to face this challenge head on," said Robinson. "There will be hard work along the way, but Im up for that challenge." The Whitecaps made the playoffs with Rennie at the helm in 2012, but stumbled down the stretch this past season. Vancouver also failed to win the Amway Canadian Championship, which the club has put an emphasis on because it means a berth in the CONCACAF Champions League. After Rennie was shown the door, club president Bob Lenarduzzi said MLS experience would be an important trait for his successor. Robinson has that, although not as a head coach. As a player, the bruising midfielder started his career in England before spending three seaasons with Toronto FC and one campaign with the New York Red Bulls. Richard Panik Jersey. "When you watched him as a player, he was a leader on the field," said Lenarduzzi. "He was constantly communicating, constantly encouraging his players. To me, what that will do is ideally translate through to his next task of being a head coach." Robinson, who played 52 times for his country, made 86 MLS appearances and was twice named TFCs most valuable player. "His vision aligns with ours as a club. Hes committed to youth development," said Lenarduzzi. "We have a like-minded philosophy in terms of attempting to play entertaining and attacking soccer." Lenarduzzi confirmed that former U.S. and Egyptian national team coach Bob Bradley, who was rumoured to be in the running for the job, spent a weekend in Vancouver during the interview process but decided to pursue other options in Europe. Lenarduzzi said Robinson and all of the other candidates were kept appraised of the situation while the Whitecaps explored the "unique opportunity" to speak with Bradley. "As far as the coach search taking longer than we would have anticipated, if Bob Bradley doesnt come up then more than likely it would have been done sooner," said Lenarduzzi. "But for us not to pursue that I think would have been wrong on our part."
