(SportsNetwork. Wholesale Packers Jerseys .com) - The Florida Panthers will try to post their longest winning streak in a calendar year when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins for the opener of a home-and-home series Saturday at Consol Energy Center. Florida has won two in a row to match a season high, but the club hasnt put together three consecutive victories since a five-game run from Dec. 10-19 of last season. The Penguins also enter Saturday having won their last two tests. The Metropolitan Division leaders also have gone six straight without a regulation loss, posting a 4-0-2 record during that stretch. Florida has claimed two of three and three of the past five encounters in this series. The teams last met on Jan. 20 when the Panthers recorded a 5-1 rout in Pittsburgh. That lopsided victory halted Floridas eight-game road losing streak in this series, as the Panthers won in the Steel City for the first time since Jan. 3, 2009. The clubs will meet in Sunrise on Monday to complete the home-and-home. The Panthers are on a four-game point streak (3-0-1) and all three victories during that stretch came via the shootout, pushing Floridas record in tiebreakers to 4-4 on the season. After beating the Washington Capitals 2-1 in an NHL-record 20-round shootout on Tuesday, the Panthers won by the same score in a shorter battle Thursday in Philadelphia. Dave Bollands goal to start the sixth round proved to be the decisive score against the Flyers, as Roberto Luongo turned aside Sean Couturiers ensuing attempt to end the game. Scottie Upshall lit the lamp in regulation for the Panthers, while Luongo made 25 saves through regulation and overtime. I thought we played a solid game, not a great game, but a solid game, said Panthers coach Gerard Gallant. We were able to come out of here with two points in Philly and its a big two points for us. Brad Boyes sat out Thursdays game for Florida and the forward is questionable tonight with an upper-body injury. The Panthers are capping a brief two-game road trip Saturday. They are 7-4-2 as the guest this season. Pittsburgh welcomed Sidney Crosby back to the lineup on Thursday, but Blake Comeau and Marc-Andre Fleury made the difference in the Pens 1-0 overtime victory against visiting Colorado. Comeau scored the games only goal at 2:24 of overtime, while Fleury stopped all 29 shots sent his way for the shutout. Fleury has a career-best six shutouts this season and also is leading the league in that category. Fleury was tested for the mumps Wednesday, but was able to start the following night when the results came back negative. Crosby wasnt so lucky, as he missed three games due to the illness, but he was back in action on Thursday. It took probably a period to get used to the speed. The fact you miss some time you feel it early on, but once you get in the game you start to feel more comfortable, Crosby said. Pittsburghs captain logged 20 minutes, 19 seconds of ice time and registered three shots on goal. Crosby has 35 points on nine goals and 26 assists over 28 games this season. The Penguins could get another key forward back in the lineup tonight, as winger Chris Kunitz is questionable after missing the past eight games with a fracture in his foot. On Friday, he completed his first full practice since suffering the injury on Nov. 29. Kunitz has nine goals and 11 assists in 23 games this season. Pittsburgh announced Friday that defenseman Olli Maatta has been diagnosed with the mumps. He was already sidelined with an upper-body injury. Fleury is 11-8-0 with a 2.62 goals against average in his career against Florida and is expected to start again tonight. Luongo is likely to get the call for the Panthers. He is 13-8-3 with a 2.78 GAA in this matchup. Pittsburgh is 12-4-1 as the host and is capping a three-game homestand tonight. Reggie Gilbert Jersey .

She intends to turn those assets into gold. Homan, third Emma Miskew, second Alison Kreviazuk and lead Lisa Weagle out of the Ottawa Curling Club will start the championship game against Switzerlands Binia Feltscher with last-rock advantage. Its Canadas reward for their 10-1 record to win the preliminary round and their 8-3 playoff win Friday over the Swiss. None of the other 11 countries at Saint Johns Harbour Station were as effective at scoring more than one point with hammer as Canada, so having it in the first end is an advantage. "Its huge," Homan said. "If you play your game properly, you can control the game." Canada last won a womens world curling title in 2008, when Winnipegs Jennifer Jones claimed it in Vernon, B.C. The wait hasnt been as long for Switzerland, as Mirjam Ott took the title two years ago in Lethbridge, Alta. With spectacular runbacks and raise takeouts, the Canadians drained Switzerlands offence Friday to win the playoff between the tournaments top two teams. That provided the host country a direct route to the gold-medal game, while Switzerland needed a 7-3 win over South Korea in Saturdays semifinal to gain a rematch. Russias Anna Sidorova and South Koreas Ji-sun Kim will play for bronze Sunday in what will be a first womens world curling medal for one of the countries. Homans team had Saturday off, so the skip watched the game in her hotel room and conducted interviews by phone in a raspy voice. "The rest will be good for me," Homan said. "Im glad the final is not today. "Its been a long week and we all need a bit of rest, so were glad that we put in the work and played really well and were able to get this bonus day off. We have some confidence we can take over into the final." Feltscher, 35, won an Olympic silver medal in 2006 playing third for Ott, but Sundays final will be the biggest game of her career as a skip. Third Irene Schori, second Franziska Kaufmann and Lead Christine Urech made their world championship debut in Saint John, so a 9-2 rround-robin record and a berth in the final is a surprise. Cheap Packers Jerseys For Sale. "Weve got nothing to lose tomorrow," Feltscher said via an interpreter. "It would be a great pleasure for us to put that gold medal around our necks." Switzerland was the only country to beat Canada in the round robin. Down 8-4, Homan shook hands after eight ends. Canadian Al Moore, husband of television curling commentator Linda Moore, is one of Switzerlands coaches. "I dont think their expectations were particularly high coming in," Moore said. "My goal coming in was to be in the playoffs. I really thought they could do that. The gold-medal game is a bonus." "They believe they can win. They believe if they go out and play their best, they believe they can win and really thats the difference." Jones and Brad Jacobs gave Canada double curling gold at the Winter Olympics in Sochi last month, with Jones going undefeated en route to the top step of the podium. Homan is on the verge of making it a dominant season for Canadian womens curling. "We have pressure on ourselves as well," Homan said. "You want that gold when it comes down to it. "Seeing Jones and (Brad) Jacobs bring home the gold from the Olympics, I really want to make it a clean sweep for Canada and make sure weve got gold everywhere." The average age of Homan and her teammates is just under 26, but they have big-game experience. Theyve won back-to-back Canadian titles, took bronze in their world championship debut last year in Riga, Latvia, and made it as far as the semifinal in Decembers Olympic trials. Homan was a shot away from making the final last year in Riga, but she missed a double takeout with her last throw of the semifinal to give up a steal and lose 8-7 to Scotland. The travel, time zone and arena were kinder to Homan this time. "Youre going to feel nervous and that comes with the territory and that comes with the sport," Homan said. "We love playing with the pressure and the home crowd. "A little bit different than Latvia. We had about five fans cheering us on. Theres a lot more energy this time around."
