CHICAGO - Al Montoyas sweet homecoming was one sour night for Jonathan Toews and Co. cheap china jerseys . Montoya made 34 saves in his first win in his hometown and Andrew Ladd scored his 150th goal, leading the Winnipeg Jets to a 3-1 victory over the slumping Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday. "This is very special. Ive been waiting for this one since I was a kid," said Montoya, who dropped his first two career starts at Chicago. "I cant even describe it, all my friends, all my family in the stands. Ive had some close ones, some good games in here, but this one takes it." Blake Wheeler had two third-period goals as Winnipeg (25-24-5) won for the second straight day, improving to 6-1 under new coach Paul Maurice. It also averted a season sweep by the Blackhawks, who won each of the first three games between the teams. "That win right there is just a great sign of character," Maurice said. Chicago (32-10-12) controlled the first two periods of its last home game before the Olympic break, but still went on to its third three-game slide of the season. The Stanley Cup champions open a seven-game trip Tuesday night in Calgary, and will not play again in Chicago until they take on Pittsburgh at Soldier Field on March 1. Brandon Bollig scored in the first for the Blackhawks, and Corey Crawford had 18 saves. "We just threw away another two points," Toews said. "I dont really have an explanation without seeming negative." The Blackhawks got Duncan Keith back after the defencemen missed Thursday nights 2-1 loss at Minnesota due to an illness. But coach Joel Quenneville scratched forward Bryan Bickell, who has struggled since returning from a lower-body injury. "Coachs decision. We need a lot more," Quenneville said. "Were looking for more." Chicago led 1-0 before Wheeler sent a rebound over Crawfords right glove at 8:16 of the third for his 20th goal. Marian Hossa then had a turnover deep in the Blackhawks end, and Ladd buried the open look against his former team for the tiebreaking goal at 12:53, drawing groans from the sellout crowd at the United Center. Wheeler added an empty-netter for his fourth goal in the last four games. "We know they have a lot of talent there and they like to control the puck," Ladd said. "But at the same time, you do get some chances against them. So we figured heading into the third with that one-goal lead we could turn it up a little bit and get some chances and get ourselves back in the game." Montoya was terrific while subbing for Ondrej Pavelec, who had started the last eight games for Winnipeg. The 28-year-old goaltender shut down the Blackhawks after an early gaffe put the Jets into a 1-0 hole. Bollig got a slick pass from Ben Smith a little more than a minute into the game and skated behind the net for a wraparound as he fell to the ice. The shot went off Montoyas stick and right pad for Bolligs sixth goal at 1:21. The Blackhawks had several opportunities to add to the lead in the first, but Montoya was there each time. They outshot the Jets 18-2 in the period. Montoya used his right pad to stop Hossa on a breakaway with 12:05 left in the first, and then stayed in after he was shaken up on the resulting collision with the streaking forward. He also made a sprawling stop on Bollig at the end of the period. It was more of the same in the second, with Montoya stopping Patrick Kane on the right side of the net. The Jets had a chance to tie it with 6 1/2 minutes left in the second, but Crawford used his right foot to kick away a shot by Bryan Little and Ladds rebound attempt went off Sheldon Brookbanks left skate. NOTES: Kane played in his 500th NHL game. ... Winnipeg scratched C James Wright, D Zach Redmond and LW Eric Tangradi. ... Jets F Michael Frolik, a key contributor on Chicagos title-winning team last season, was greeted with a round of applause when he was introduced with Winnipegs starting lineup. ... The Blackhawks have just three wins in their last 10 games. cheap jerseys from china . Mike Vecchione tied it at 2 with 4:01 left in the first, Saskatoon native Eli Lichtenwald gave the Dutchman the lead 57 seconds later, and Daniel Ciampini capped the spree with 2:57 to go. replica jerseys china . Nick Young scored 17 points for Los Angeles, which lost five of its last seven before trouncing the Pelicans, who beat them handily last week in New Orleans. Jodie Meeks and Xavier Henry scored 15 points apiece for the Lakers, who led by 20 points in the first half before coasting to their 12th win in their last 13 regular-season meetings with New Orleans. . Catch all the action on TSN2 and TSN GO at 9pm et/6pm pt. San Antonio took the series lead Monday night with a 122-105 home victory in Game 1. The Spurs used a balanced scoring attack and clamped down defensively late in the third quarter to claim the win.MANCHESTER, England - Manchester United heaped more misery on Liverpool by beating its great rival 3-0 in the Premier League on Sunday, earning a sixth straight win to underline the transformation in fortunes of Englands two biggest clubs.Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata — from an offside position — scored to give United a 2-0 lead at halftime and Robin van Persie added the third in the 71st minute at Old Trafford.While third-place United remained eight points behind leader Chelsea to maintain its unlikely title challenge, Liverpool is mid-table and struggling to recreate the form that took the team to a runner-up finish last season.The score was harsh on Liverpool, with United goalkeeper David de Gea producing a string of brilliant saves to deny Raheem Sterling and substitute Mario Balotelli.The visitors were also unlucky that Mata was not signalled offside when he headed home to make it 2-0 in the 40th, puncturing Liverpools bright start.They were much more clinical when they needed to be, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. For their goalkeeper to get man of the match tells you everything.But these are worrying times for Rodgers. He is lacking a clinical finisher in the absence of the injured Daniel Sturridge, his defence is in a mess and he has doubts about his first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, who was dropped here for Brad Jones. It ended a miserable week for Liverpool, which was eliminated from the Champions League on Tuesday.Without hitting anywhere near top form, United is perhaps making the title race a three-team fight. Louis van Gaals side has no European or English League Cup commitments to clog up its schedule this season.Having spent around $250 million bolstering its squad in the last off-season, a title challenge is probably the least Uniteds fans and owners expect — although none of the summer signings even started against Liverpool. Van Gaal is gettting results with the players he inherited from David Moyes, and with a dose of fortune. fake jerseys china. Winning now six matches in a row is fantastic but we have to improve our playing style, said Van Gaal, who played Rooney in centre midfield. And I am saying that nearly every week.Six days after scraping a 2-1 win at Southampton, United took the lead in the 12th — just 25 seconds after Sterling, playing as a lone forward, was denied by De Gea in a one-on-one chance. United counter-attacked, Antonio Valencia played the ball between Joe Allens legs on the right wing and crossed for Rooney to apply a side-footed finish inside the near post.Liverpool was crisper with its passing and had more possession, but squandered a number of openings before Mata doubled the lead.Again, it was good delivery from the flanks, with Ashley Young whipping in a cross from the left that was flicked on by Van Persie for Mata to stoop and head in from close range at the far post.You need luck, but you can force the luck, Van Gaal said. We are forcing the luck and that was not the case at the start of the season.Sterling was presented with another great chance at the start of the second half after pouncing on Jonny Evans weak back-pass. The England international darted to the left of De Gea, who made up the ground to block Sterlings tame left-footed shot.De Gea then tipped Balotellis shot onto the bar in his best intervention before Van Persie made it 3-0. Dejan Lovren miscued his clearance from Rooneys cross and the ball went straight to Mata, who passed to his right for Van Persie to slot home.There was still time for De Gea to deny Balotelli again and ensure United reversed the 3-0 score from the corresponding fixture last season in March.We had enough chances to get something and it epitomized what our season has been, Rodgers said. We have nowhere near enough goals in the team. ' ' '
