After that second Philly loss, the Cubs were 84-60 and the Mets had pulled ahead at 85-57. The Mets would not look back. The Cubs' eight-game losing streak finally ended the next day in St. Louis, but the Mets were in the midst of a ten-game winning streak, and the Cubs, wilting from team fatigue, generally deteriorated in all phases of the game. The Mets would go on to win the World Series. The Cubs, despite a respectable 92-70 record, would be remembered for having lost a remarkable 17½ games in the standings to the Mets in the last quarter of the season.
CONCLUSION The Golden State Warriors had a 24-0 start to their 2016 season. To add, this was one of the best NBA start to the season ever which
Two possibilities still exist heading into the weekend for New York and each present a different set of challenges moving forward. They can either finish 3rd in the Metropolitan division and play the Pittsburgh Penguins, which would keep them in the division bracket moving forward or they could still finish in the first wild card position and face the Florida Panthers in the Atlantic division bracket.
"We know that we are not making the playoffs, we just played our hearts out and played for Prospect," Jarosz said
“Never get too high and never get too low,” Sarkisian said. “You recognize what went well and what didn’t. Our guys were focused and they were ready to go. They were in it and played hard, but it was just that last half of the inning it just didn’t work. But there is nothing to hang your head about. Just recognise that we had opportunities and we have to just make more plays. We come back to work on Monday and move forward.”
To put this year's record in perspective, the Buccaneers are on the verge of surpassing their win total from last
Over their last nine games, they are 5-4-0, and in the four losses, have allowed a staggering 20 goals while showing up for, arguably, four out of 12 periods of play (two in Ottawa and two in New Jersey). In four of their last six games, they have put less than 25 shots on goal. They are 26th in the NHL in 5v5 possession (47.4%) and have a PDO of 100.6, showing they are not garnering results due to inflated shooting or save percentages.

2-1 start and have looked good in their games. Recently they defeated Martin Jones and his San Jose Sharks by a score of 7-4. The King Lundqvist was not in net for that game but is expected to be in net tonight. As we all know when the Wings and Rangers meet up, lately the games are all defense and goaltending as the offense on both sides seem to cool off. The Rangers are looking to finally get back to the Stanley Cup Finals so they can finally win it for Lundqvist. This team weakness so far this year is the lack of defense coming from their defensive players as they have had their defensive lapses just as the wings have their 2nd period mind lapses. Look for this one to be another tight played
