    Uniondale, NY (SportsNetwork. Michael Roberts Lions Jersey .com) - After a slow start, the Montreal Canadiens scored three unanswered goals to top the New York Islanders, 3-1, on Tuesday. Carey Price made 37 saves for the Canadiens, who have won five of their last six games. Montreal got second-period goals from Andrei Markov and Brendan Gallagher, and David Desharnais added an insurance marker late in the third period to seal the win. Kyle Okposo scored for the Islanders 12 minutes into the game, but they did not light the lamp again as they lost their four-game winning streak. Chad Johnson got the start in net for New York and made 18 saves on 21 shots. The Canadiens needed 14 minutes just to get their first shot on goal, but the second period went much better. Montreal was able to tie the game six minutes into the middle period. With traffic in front of the net, Markov blasted a shot from the blue line past Johnson for the equalizer. Just five minutes later the Canadiens moved in front. On a 3-on-2, Gallagher dropped a pass off to Alex Galchenyuk and drove to the net. Galchenyuk set up Sergei Gonchar for a shot that was partially blocked, and Gallagher pounded the loose puck in the slot past Johnson for the 2-1 lead. Late in the game the Canadiens added an insurance goal before New York could even get the extra attacker on the ice. In transition, Lars Eller found Desharnais cutting to the net, and Desharnais was able to redirect the pass past Johnson for the two-goal lead with 1:11 left in the game. The Islanders were buzzing early in the game, as they fired 11 shots on Price before Johnson had to make his first save. New York capitalized on that fast start with the first goal. After some strong skating through the neutral zone from John Tavares created a 2-on-1 rush, Okposo received Tavares pass and snapped the puck by Price for the 1-0 lead.

Another good performance in the final against Spain on Sunday and few will be able to dismiss him as the future of Brazilian football. Neymar made headlines across the world before the Confederations Cup by signing with Barcelona, but he arrived at the World Cup warm-up tournament marked by lacklustre performances in the famous yellow jersey. He quickly changed that by scoring three goals in four matches, leading Brazil to the much-anticipated final against Spain. The 21-year-old striker was voted man of the match in the teams first three matches and was decisive again in the semifinal against Uruguay. "Im really happy with how things have turned out for me and for the national team so far," Neymar said Friday. "We only have one match left and I hope we can play well to finish off with the title." The decisive match against world and European champion Spain at the Maracana Stadium provides the perfect stage for Neymar to lift his first significant title with Brazil and to try to prove his critics wrong for good. He has been waiting for that chance for a long time, and had said before the tournament began that "it would be a dream come true to play" the final against the Spaniards. "Im anxious already," the Brazilian striker said. "This is a match that can stay with me for the rest of my life. I will be defending my country, with the entire world watching." Brazil coach Luiz Felipe Scolari said Neymar has already proved his worth regardless of how he plays in the final. "Barcelona must be beaming seeing what he has been doing here," Scolari said. "He has been playing well, making a difference against European defenders." Wearing the No. 10 jersey, Neymar opened the scoring for Brazil in the opener against Japan and also in the second match against Mexico, both times with remarkable goals. He netted his third with a well-placed free kick against Italy, and he also assisted in both Brazil goals on Wednesday against Uruguay. "Neymar is our idol, he is the peoples idol,&" Scolari said. Jarrad Davis Youth Jersey. "He has had a nice string of matches and everybody is happy about that. Its important for him to be going through all of these different situations with Brazil because its something that will make him even better in the future." Neymar attracted everyones attention with great performances with Santos in Brazil, but critics were quick to downplay his potential after he failed to replicate that same success with the national team. He was often criticized for diving too much, an issue that came up again during the Confederations Cup when Uruguay captain Diego Lugano publicly accused the Brazilian striker of trying to "fool the referees and the rivals." The remarks prompted the Brazilian football federation to put out a lengthy statement in the players defence. "Its worth repeating that Neymar doesnt need to resort to diving to play the type of football that is enchanting the world," the federation said. At the tournament Neymar has, like many attackers, gone to ground easily, but has also looked more muscular and resistant to the attentions of some of Europes best and biggest defenders. Neymar had been struggling before announcing his move to Barcelona. He hadnt scored in nine matches and many doubted whether he would come through for Brazil. The Confederations Cup is his third significant competition with the national team. He helped Brazils under-20 squad win the South American championship in 2011, but his first test with the senior team was the 2011 Copa America, when Brazil was eliminated by Paraguay in the quarterfinals. The second was in the 2012 London Olympics, when he was the star of the Brazilian squad that was favoured to win its first Olympic gold medal in football but left with the silver after a loss to Mexico. Neymar was among the players loudly jeered by home fans after playing poorly in a 2-2 draw in a friendly with Chile earlier this year. That seems a long time ago. "The Brazilian fans are completely behind us now," Neymar said. "They are supporting us no matter what and hopefully they will be our 12th player again on Sunday to help us win this title." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
