Running back Chris Johnson was a full participant at practice Thursday for the first time since joining the New York Jets after recovering from off-season knee surgery. Christopher Gibson Islanders Jersey . "I felt good," he said. "I felt no pain or anything like that." Johnson, who signed with the Jets in April, had surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee after last season. He played through the injury most of last season, when he ran for 1,077 yards -- the second-lowest total of his career. Johnson was limited throughout the off-season workouts and minicamp as the Jets tried to be cautious in getting him on the field. "Im ready to go do whatever they ask me to do," he said. Johnson, who rushed for 2,006 yards in 2009 with Tennessee, fumbled a handoff but showed off some of the speed that made him one of the leagues fastest players. He also lined up a handful of times at receiver, a spot where he could be frequently used with the Jets. Johnson had a career-high 57 receptions out of the backfield in 2011, and caught 42 passes last year despite dealing with the knee issue. With his speed, he could create big-time mismatches as a pass-catching back. "When you see Chris Johnson in the flat, theyre going to have to be mindful of that," wide receiver David Nelson said of opposing defences. "Theyre going to have to jump to that. When they do that, it opens up a lot of spaces and a lot of spots in the middle of the field. If they dont, hes going to take it to the house. "It opens up a whole different dimension for us, especially in the passing game." Fellow running back Chris Ivory was limited with a tweaked hamstring that coach Rex Ryan didnt believe was serious. Guard Willie Colon and linebacker Antwan Barnes, both on the active/physically unable to perform list while recovering from knee surgeries, worked out with trainers on the sideline during practice. Ryan indicated that Colon could return a lot sooner than Barnes. Rookie wide receiver Quincy Enunwa didnt finish practice with a hip injury. Custom New York Islanders Jersey . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. Jaroslav Halak Jersey .com) - The Pittsburgh Penguins will try to complete a sweep of the Washington Capitals when the clubs cap a quick home-and-home series Tuesday night in the Steel City. http://www.nhlislandershockeystore.com/nikolay-kulemin-jersey/ . Cincinnati has lost back-to-back games in overtime, wasting a chance to take a commanding lead in their division.DALLAS -- After winning the last three games by a 14-1 margin, Dallas coach Lindy Ruff and goalie Kari Lehtonen believe the Stars latest win was their best this season. Lehtonen made 24 saves for his second shutout in three games to lead the Stars to a 3-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday night. "The last three games have all been excellent in all three zones," Ruff said. "This one against a highly skilled team and taking care of special teams probably knocks the other two down a little bit." Sergei Gonchar, Jamie Benn and Rich Peverley had Dallas goals, and Lehtonen also had an assist for the second consecutive game. "This is up there," Lehtonen said. "That teams really good. We were able to play a lot better than them. We dominated the power play and the penalty kill. Overall, it was a great effort." The Metropolitan Division-leading Penguins have lost two games in six days by a combined 8-1 to Dallas and Florida, teams fighting to get into playoff contention. Gonchar had a power-play goal, his second score this season, with just under 5 minutes remaining in the first period against his former team. Dallas has scored with a man advantage in seven consecutive games. Alex Goligoski, another former Penguins player, had an assist when Benn scored to make it 2-0 at 3:14 of the second. Peverley closed the scoring a little more than 7 minutes later. "This is desperation for (the Stars) and we saw that in their last two games. We saw it again tonight," Pittsburgh coach Dan Bylsma said. "This was a desperate team, played hard. We have to be able to match that regardless of where our position is or what the standings look like." Lehtonen faced only 12 shots during the first two periods, before the Penguins doubled their attempts in the third. "There were a couple of good (saves) in the second period when it was 2-0," Lehtonen said. "After that, we were able to score to make it 3-0. After that, it was quite relaxing. If I let one in, there would still be a two-goal lead." He stopped Pittsburghs Evgeni Malkin point-blank 9 1/2 minutes into the third. "With the team in front of him for the first 40 minutes, you couldnt find more than one or two good chance," Ruff said. "In the third period when he really needed them, he stood tall." Daallas line of Cody Eakin, Antoine Roussel and Ryan Garbutt neutralized the line centred by Penguins scoring leader Sidney Crosby. Dennis Seidenberg Islanders Jersey. . "We were sharp, quick and crispy, and it worked out for us," Eakin said. Dallas dominated the first period, with 10 shots on goal to Pittsburghs 4, and scored first. Gonchar took a pass at the top of the slot from Ray Whitney on the right wing boards, and fired a high shot over Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury. Lehtonen also received an assist on the score. The Penguins Kris Letang went off for roughing at 1:14 of the second period. One second before the penalty expired, Benn took a pass from Goligoski in the right faceoff circle and shot over Fleurys shoulder to make it 2-0. The two power-play goals came against Pittsburghs league-leading unit, which entered the game with a streak of 11 successful penalty kills. "They capitalized on their power plays. We didnt," Crosby said. "We didnt execute when we got chances. They carried the play for the first two periods." Bylsma added: "I think momentum changed, we turn over the puck in the neutral zone. That led back to a chance against and then we took a penalty. That got their first power-play goal and in this game, were minus-2 in the special teams battle. That was a big part of the story tonight." Midway through the second period, Shawn Horcoff stole the puck in the neutral zone and passed to Peverley, who skated into the right circle and shot into the upper right corner of the net with 9:40 remaining. The Stars again outshot Pittsburgh in the second, 12-8. NOTES: Lehtonen leads NHL goalies with four assists this season. He has 31 in his career, with a high of six in 2010-11. ...
