  • The NHL Play of the Year showdowns second round resumes today with a battle of determination and finish. Ederson Brazil Jersey . Todays Round of 16 match-up features Ottawa Senators forward Kyle Turris taking on Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux. Turris shows a tremendous individual effort, faking out nearly an entire team. He victimizes the Caps going straight to the net. He barrels over the blue line freezing Mike Green, who earns a delayed penalty. He then shakes off some harassment from John Erskine before reaching for some open net with a ridiculous drag that leaves Philipp Grubauer with no chance of stopping the puck. Turris took out perennial contender Sidney Crosby in the opening round, garnering nearly 55 per cent of the vote. Giroux doesnt quite have as far to go on the ice, but given the circumstances unleashes a beauty of a shot. Picking a wild point shot rebound off the end boards, Giroux picks up the disc and gets sent to the ice by David Savard. While falling, though, he unleashes one heck of a shot. Falling, he lifts a backhander behind his back towards the net... and roofs it. Its not even like Curtis McElhinney doesnt expect the shot, Giroux just beats him high glove without even looking. Giroux took out one of his Pennsylvania rivals in the opening round, capturing 54-plus per cent from the Penguins Evgeni Malkin. You can watch the highlights and make your decision here .

Barcelona are unbeaten in 36 consecutive matches At the moment, we are only thinking about three points against Getafe, which will leave us closer to our objective of winning the league.We know that we are where we wanted to be at the start of the season, but the most difficult part remains, which is to confirm our performances with titles.We have a clear advantage but we cannot afford to slip up because losing two matches could see us punished. Casemiro Brazil Jersey.
