Carey Price isnt back in golden form, but hes getting there. Adidas Teemu Pulkkinen Jersey . The Montreal Canadiens goaltender has won three of his four games since returning from a lower-body injury that kept him out from the end of the Olympic break until March 15. "The past couple of games things are getting back to normal," Price said Saturday night after beating the Toronto Maple Leafs. "Its a work in progress. When youre out of action for just about three weeks, its all about timing and getting a feel for the game." Price missed eight games with the injury that he said he suffered while helping Team Canada win gold at the Sochi Olympics. Since returning, he has allowed 13 goals in four games, which statistically is also a work in progress. But the results are there as the Habs have gone from a precarious spot without him to a solid third place in the Atlantic Division. "Im feeling pretty good, these guys have been playing well in front of me and giving me pretty good looks," Price said. Price could make his fifth straight start Monday when he and his teammates visit the archrival Boston Bruins, though coach Michel Therrien would not confirm that Saturday in Toronto. Therrien did note that the Habs are "playing with a lot of confidence" with Price in net. That especially seems to be the case against the Bruins. Price shut them out at Bell Centre on Dec. 5 and in his career against them is 17-8-3 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .919 save percentage. Overall, the Habs are 5-2 against the Bruins this season and last. A March 12 loss made it unfair to say Montreal has Bostons number, but theres no arguing it has had more success than most teams. "I think youve got to give a good team a lot of respect, but you cant give them too much respect," Price said. "Obviously we respect what theyve accomplished so far this season, but you cant take it to the point where you give them a lot of room out there. Youve just got to play them tough." The Bruins might be the toughest opponent around, riding a league-best 12-game winning streak into Monday. They last lost March 1 against the Capitals and have already clinched an Eastern Conference playoff berth. "We still have to play our hockey, really focusing on the little details going into the playoffs, and not getting satisfied and complacent," captain Zdeno Chara said after the Bruins clinched in Denver. "We just still have to push our team to the best, maximum results." Boston has outscored its opponents 46-17 as part of the third-longest win streak in franchise history. That kind of dominance obviously affects how Price and the Habs approach facing the Bruins. "I think when youre facing a good hockey club you play a little bit more scared, I suppose," he said. "You have to be prepared when you play a good team because theyre going to smoke you if you dont. Obviously Bostons a really exceptional team all season." The Bruins have also had strong play from backup goaltender Chad Johnson over their streak. Starter Tuukka Rask has only allowed 11 goals in his seven victories, while Johnson has allowed six in his five starts. Johnson said staying in the moment has a lot to do with Bostons streak. "We dont really worry about how many weve won or who were playing in one day or two days," he said. "We just worry about whos next. Thats sort of where our mindset is." Cheap Vegas Golden Knights Jerseys . The International Ice Hockey Federation says Pavlovs avoided a two-year sanction because he acted "without significant negligence in failing to verify the safety of the supplements he was taking. Adidas Oscar Lindberg Jersey . Simona Halep of Romania claimed the fifth title of her career by beating Samantha Stosur of Australia 7-6 (1), 6-2 in the womens final. After trading sets, Gasquet trailed 4-3 in the decider but broke back to 4-4 in a game that went to seven deuces with Kukushkin constantly failing on his forehand shots. http://www.cheapgoldenknightsjerseys.com/?tag=adidas-griffin-reinhart-jersey . -- Jack Del Rio only wanted to talk about the Cowboys, not the Trojans.LOS ANGELES -- A pair of Cy Young Awards, three straight major league ERA titles, a 20-win season -- and now a no-hitter. There isnt much more for Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw to accomplish besides winning a World Series ring. Kershaw dominated the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night, striking out a career-high 15 and allowing his only baserunner on a throwing error by shortstop Hanley Ramirez in Los Angeles 8-0 victory. Kershaws gem gave the Dodgers both no-hitters in the majors this season. Josh Beckett tossed one May 25 in Philadelphia. "I am so amazed," Kershaw said. "Beckett told me he was going to teach me how to do that, so I have Josh to thank." Cheered on by his wife in the stands, Kershaw (7-2) retired his first 18 batters before Corey Dickerson led off the seventh with a slow bouncer to Ramirez. His throw on the run went wide past first baseman Adrian Gonzalez for a two-base error -- ending any chance for a perfect game. But that was it for the Rockies against the 26-year-old Kershaw, who shrugged off the miscue and came oh-so-close to pitching the 22nd perfecto in the majors since 1900. "He had command of everything. I told him between innings: Its not fair when you have a devastating slider and a devastating curveball in the same night," Dodgers catcher A.J. Ellis said. "And when he does that, nights like this are really possible." One batter after Dickerson reached base, rookie third baseman Miguel Rojas backhanded Troy Tulowitzkis grounder behind the bag and let fly with a strong throw to first that Gonzalez -- a three-time Gold Glove winner -- scooped out of the dirt to keep the no-hitter intact. And with the crowd of 46,069 on its feet and roaring, Kershaw made quick work of the Rockies in the ninth. DJ LeMahieu grounded out to first base on the first pitch and Charlie Culberson hit a lazy fly to right field on the next one. Dickerson then saw four straight strikes and went down swinging. The only pitcher to have more strikeouts in a no-hitter was Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, according to STATS. "Ive seen some great pitching performances, but its tough to be any better than Kershaw," Colorado manager Walt Weiss said. After his 107th and final pitch, a beaming Kershaw raised his arms above his head and waited for a huge hug from Ellis. "I started tearing up out there in the ninth inning, just sitting out there catching and watching him throw after he got those first two outs," Ellis said. "It was pretty special." "Its something you never forget," he added. "Its a game Ill watch on replays with my kids forever." Moments later, as he was about to be interviewed on the field, Kershaw was doused by teammates with two large buckets. The left-hander with the big-breaking curve also got a big hug from his wife. Kershaw, who signed a $215 million, seven-year contract in the off-season -- a record for a pitcher -- gave Los Angeles sports fans their second memorable thrill in just a few days. The Kings won the Stanley Cup at home last Friday night, their second NHL championship in three years, and brought the famous trophy to Dodger Stadium on Tuesday for a pregame ceremony. The next night, Kershaw took over. The only other time the Dodgers pitched two no-hitters in one season was 19566, when the team was still in Brooklyn. Adidas William Carrier Jersey. Carl Erskine and Sal Maglie turned the trick that year. Hall of Famer Sandy Koufax, who tossed four no-hitters, pitched the franchises lone perfect game on Sept. 9, 1965, against the Chicago Cubs. "I guess I havent really thought of the ramifications of throwing one of these things, but its definitely special company," Kershaw said. "Its pretty cool." Ramirez was back in the lineup after leaving Tuesday nights game with a bruised ring finger on his throwing hand, the result of a sharp grounder by Dickerson than deflected into short centre field for a double. Ramirez was replaced on defence by rookie Carlos Triunfel to start the eighth. Kershaw missed more than six weeks early this year because of a strained muscle in his upper back, after beating Arizona in the season opener during the Dodgers two-game trip to Australia. It was the 22nd no-hitter in Dodgers history -- more than any other team -- and the first at home since Ramon Martinezs 2-0 gem against the Marlins on July 14, 1995. "His stuff was phenomenal tonight. I think all the guys said that. We tip our hats to him," Dickerson said. The day after Becketts no-hitter, teammate Hyun-Jin Ryu took a perfect game into the eighth inning against Cincinnati before giving up a leadoff double to Todd Frazier. "As far as individual games go, this is really special. To do it at home is more amazing," Kershaw said before looking up and thanking the crowd. Kershaw received a standing ovation when he came to bat in the eighth, and another one minutes later after finishing the job against one of baseballs top lineups. Playing their home games at hitter-friendly Coors Field, the Rockies began the day leading the majors in batting average, hits, total bases, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. They were first in the NL in runs and homers. "There are some guys in that lineup that give him fits," Ellis acknowledged. "But the way he made those guys look tonight was a testament to how good his stuff was. He was pretty dialed in and pretty locked in -- especially as the game progressed." Rojas also supported Kershaw with his bat, hitting a three-run double while continuing to fill in for injured third baseman Juan Uribe. Gonzalez and Matt Kemp each drove in two runs, helping the Dodgers complete their first three-game sweep at home this season. Jorge De La Rosa (6-6) threw 86 pitches over 3 1-3 innings and was charged with eight runs, six hits and five walks. The left-hander is 0-3 with an 8.19 ERA in his last four starts after going 6-0 with a 1.80 ERA during his previous seven outings. NOTES: Ryan threw a record seven no-hitters. He whiffed 17 batters in one of them, 16 in another and 15 in yet another. Warren Spahn (15) and Don Wilson (15) were the only other pitchers with 15 strikeouts in a no-hitter, STATS said. ... San Francisco LHP Jonathan Sanchez was the previous pitcher to throw a no-hitter with the only baserunner reaching on an error, in July 2009 against San Diego, STATS said. ... The last time the Rockies were held hitless, it was by Dodgers pitcher Hideo Nomo on Sept. 17, 1996. The only other no-hitter against Colorado was pitched by Al Leiter of the Marlins four months earlier.
