CALGARY - It wasnt exciting, but it was effective.John Tavares scored early and again late as the New York Islanders made it three consecutive wins Friday night with a 2-1 victory over the Calgary Flames.After Tavares opened the scoring eight minutes into the game, the score remained 1-0 until 12:16 of the third period when Tavares got the puck in the slot, fended off Deryk Engelland and fired his team-leading 17th goal through the pads of Jonas Hiller.Obviously not a whole lot of offence tonight, just trying to play a good solid road game, said Tavares.The Flames got a goal from Johnny Gaudreau — his 13th of the season — with 3:25 left in the third period to get back within one but they could not tie it against Jaroslav Halak, who had 22 stops to win his seventh straight game.Guys played great. Everybody was back-checking, tracking back hard, we didnt give up too much, said Halak, who improved to 21-6-0. It could have been perfect or better if they didnt score but a win is a win.New York (26-11-1) improves to 7-1-1 in its last nine games and keeps pace with the Pittsburgh Penguins atop the Metropolitan Division. The Islanders third stop on a season-long seven-game road trip is Sunday in Edmonton.Calgary (21-16-3) had its four-game winning streak snapped. The Flames are not back in action until Wednesday when they host Detroit. They are 3-1-0 with two games left on a six-game homestand.They were just getting pucks first and out-battling us, said Flames centre Josh Jooris. That first period wasnt the greatest and we got behind the 8-ball early.Most upsetting for the Flames was that their overall effort wasnt up to the standard theyve shown all season.Its disappointing. Thats our game, what we pride ourselves on. But we just got outworked tonight, Jooris said.The first game of 2015 for both teams looked more like the first game of the pre-season for much of the night. The game was devoid of any flow with both teams guilty of errant passes, numerous stoppages for icings and offsides and general sloppy play, especially in the first two periods.A pretty boring hockey game to be honest with you. But that said, thats how we want to play on the road, said Islanders right-winger Kyle Okposo. We were half-an-inch off in the offensive zone and didnt get quite as many chances as wed have liked but I thought we did a pretty good job of limiting theirs.Calgary coach Bob Hartley saw the game similarly.I felt that our passing was not what it usually is — lots of bouncing pucks and pucks off the skates. The first period, we were not there at all. We basically survived that first period. Then in the second, we got better. The third period, we got better. But our execution was not good enough.Looking to tie the game, the Flames got back-to-back power plays early in the third period but were unable to take advantage against a New York penalty-killing unit ranked 29th in the NHL.Calgary failed to generate a shot on the first chance and the best scoring chance of the second power play — a Curtis Glencross set up of Sean Monahan — was stopped on a superb pad save by Halak.We need a lot more. Were not happy about that, said Monahan. Power plays are a big part of the game and thats how youve got to win hockey games. When you have that man advantage, you have to find a way to bury one.New York took a 1-0 lead eight minutes into the game, capitalizing on a two-minute two-man advantage.With Lance Bouma already in the penalty box for tripping, Matt Stajan was sent off on the ensuing face-off for covering his hand on the puck.Calgary killed off the first 45 seconds of the 5-on-3 without any troubles but once the Islanders got set up, they moved the puck around nicely and eventually, Ryan Strome fed a perfect pass through the top of the crease to Tavares, who one-timed a shot in the open side before Hiller could slide across.Some pretty good skill up there and Strome made a heck of a pass, said Okposo, who also had an assist.Tavares said it was a matter of being patient when you have that much time to work with.Theres no reason to rush any shots. I think you want to create some movement, see what theyre giving you and try to make them commit and create some lanes, Tavares said. When you get a good look, you have to take it. Thats what we tried to do.Calgary pulled their goalie for the extra attacker in the final minute but could not pull out another late comeback. The Flames lead the NHL with eight wins when trailing entering the third period.I really believe that the Islanders showed us why theyre having such a great season, said Hartley.Hiller had 22 stops for the Flames. His record falls to 13-11-2.Notes: In two career games at the Saddledome, Tavares has four goals. He also scored twice in his only previous appearance four years ago... The Flames shuffled their lines a little bit moving RW Joe Colborne onto a line with Monahan and Glencross and dropping David Jones to the fourth line alongside Matt Stajan and Brandon Bollig... LW Mason Raymond was a healthy scratch for Calgary for the second game in a row... The Islanders record when scoring first improves to 14-8-1. However, they still have a better record when surrendering the first goal (12-3-0). B.J. Hill Jersey .

Hi Kerry, The recent issues in the Boston-Pittsburgh game have highlighted a number of officiating, game control, and player sportsmanship aspects.QUEBEC -- Light heavyweight Ryan (The Big Deal) Jimmo knocked out UFC newcomer Sean (The Real OC) OConnell in the first round on the undercard of "The Ultimate Fighter Nations" finale card Wednesday. Jimmo (19-3) felled OConnell with a crunching counter straight right and then added three blows for good measure before the referee stepped in at four minutes 27 seconds. With Jimmo leading the way, Canadian fighters went 5-1 on the undercard. English middleweight Michael Bisping faced former Green Beret Tim Kennedy in the main event of the televised mixed martial arts card. The main card also featured the all-Canadian welterweight and middleweight finals of "The Ultimate Fighter Nations" reality TV show as well as a welterweight matchup of the shows coaches: Montreals Patrick (The Predator) Cote and Australian Kyle Noke. A native of Saint John, N.B., who fights out of Edmonton, Jimmo survived a kick to the cup en route to the violent win over OConnell (15-5). The KO punch, after five straight decisions to open the card, had the small crowd at the Colisee Pepsi roaring. Jimmo, who like OConnell fought in the Edmonton-based Maximum Fighting Championship, opened his UFC account in 2012 with a seven-second KO of Anthony (The Hippo) Perosh. He is now 2-2 in the UFC. Former Strikeforce champion Sarah Kaufman of Victoria registered her first UFC win, earning a unanimous 30-27 decision over Leslie (The Peacemaker) Smith in a high-octane slugfest that saw the Canadian land 205 strikes to 111 for Smith. The margin was closer in significant strikes, with Kaufman leading 136-100. Kaufman, ranked No. 5 among UFC bantamweight contenders, won a split decision when the two met in April 2013 on an Invicta FC card. Kaufman (17-2 with one no contest) lost a decision to Jessica (Evil) Eye in her UFC debut in October but the decision was changed to a no contest when Eye tested positive for marijuana. Another fight last summer fell through when her opponent was injured. Smith (6-5-1) took this fight on 10 days notice. Veteran lightweight Mark Bocek of Woodbridge, Ont., returning to the cage for the first time since November 2012 after injury, won a slender 28-29, 20-27, 29-28 split decision over newcomer Mike (El Cucuy) de la Torre. Bocek (12-6 including 8-5 in the UFC) was perhaps fortunate to earn the decision and he exited the cage the more battered of the two. The gritty De la Torre (12-4), who trains with former UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson, wass a late injury replacement for Evan Dunham.dddddddddddd "I felt a little rusty in there but Im back, and I will go onwards from here," said Bocek. "Ive fought top guys like Ben Henderson before and I can get back to that level." K.J. Noons needed just 30 seconds to knock out Sam (Hands of Stone) Stout of London, Ont., with a huge overhand right to the chin. Noons (12-6) did more damage before the refree could get to him to stop the action. Stout (21-10-1) was so dazed that he tried to grapple with the referee after being knocked out and then fell backwards. But he was smiling soon after. The fight was scheduled for lightweight (155 pounds) but was switched to welterweight at the request of both fighters. They weighed in at 168-169 pounds. Bantamweight Mitch Gagnon of Sudbury, Ont., opened the card with a unanimous 30-27 decision over Tim (The Psycho) Gorman, whose stint on Season 18 of "The Ultimate Fighter" ended early through injury. Gagnon (11-2) won his third straight in the UFC, punishing Gorman (9-3) for his offence-at-all-costs approach in his UFC debut. "Im happy with the win, but I can be more exciting than that, and I will show that next time," said Gagon. In a battle of bearded Australia TUF Nations teammates, welterweight (Filthy) Rich Walsh (8-2) showed a better all-round game in earning a unanimous 30-27 decision over Chris (The Savage) Indich. The durable Indich (5-2) becomes the first indigenous Australian to fight in the UFC. Montreal middleweight Nordine Taleb (9-2) used his superior grappling skills to score a one-sided 30-27 decision over Australian Vik (The Spartan) Grujic (6-4) in another matchup of TUF Nations cast members. Lanky bantamweight George Roop (15-11-1) won a 29-28, 30-27, 29-26 decision over Dustin (The Diamond) Kimura (12-2). The card marked the UFCs first in Quebec City, which became the sixth Canadian city to host an event after Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary and Winnipeg. Halifax is scheduled to join the UFC club in October with a televised card The UFC has held 14 pay-per-view shows in Canada: six in Montreal, four in Toronto, two in Vancouver and one in each of Calgary and Winnipeg. Pay-per-views are slated later this year in Vancouver (UFC 174, June 14), Toronto (UFC 178, Sept. 27) and Montreal (UFC 181, Dec. 6). Wednesdays show also marked the debut of Canadas own Octagon.
