BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. - It wasnt a victory but it sure felt like one as the Montreal Impact snapped an eight-game road losing streak with Sundays 0-0 draw with the Chicago Fire.The Impact, mired in last place in Major League Soccers Eastern Conference, remained winless on the road (0-12 with four ties) but at least salvaged their first road point since a 0-0 tie at Vancouver on June 25.We fought hard, I think the first 10 to 15 minutes they had a lot of possession but as the game went along we grew, said Impact assistant coach Mauro Biello, filling in for suspended head coach Frank Klopas. In the second half we were probably the better team in terms of possession and creating chances.Chicago pushed aggressively through the opening half but pressure tapered off in the second while Montreal goalkeeper Evan Bush collected eight saves for the day and his third shutout.The Impact (6-18-7) managed just six shots and only two on goal while Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson earned his sixth shutout.Montreal also dashed Chicagos lingering playoff hopes. The ninth-place Fire (5-8-18) needed a victory over Montreal to say alive in the post-season hunt. Instead, Chicago will miss the playoffs for the second straight season and fourth out of the last five seasons.The Fires 18th tie also extended a new league record for draws. Chicago and New York had shared the old mark of 16, set in 2011.It sort of defines our season, said Fire coach Frank Yallop, the one-time Canadian national team boss. Not quite good enough to win the game, but we did okay in the match. Were not quite good enough to win games and see games out.Klopas was suspended following his ejection from a Sept. 27 loss at Columbus.The former Fire head coach, dismissed after the 2013 season, remained within terms of his suspension and avoided the field but still greeted old friends and fans from his Chicago days.It was good to be back, said Klopas, a Chicago soccer fixture since high school and later as a local pro player and coach. I miss being here. I told the guys today you take things for granted when you live here.The Impact resume play on Saturday at home against New England before their final road trip to Toronto on Oct. 18. Theyll close the season on Oct. 25 against D.C. United. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .

Wholesale Jerseys Authentic . New York secured second place in the Metropolitan Division when the Philadelphia Flyers lost at Tampa Bay later Thursday. The Rangers will face either the Flyers or Columbus in the opening round of the post-season. The Rangers struggled throughout against the lowly Sabres and goalie Matt Hackett, who played in just his seventh NHL game of the season.BOSTON – It was just one game but it was an ugly one for the St. Louis Cardinals, who will be looking to bounce back from last nights 8-1 defeat to the Red Sox in the World Series opener. A lot will be asked of Cardinals rookie starter Michael Wacha, especially with the apparent reemergence of David Ortiz as a potent offensive threat for the Red Sox. Heres a closer look at tonights game. GAME TWO PREVIEW: PITCHING MATCHUP Cardinals RHP Michael Wacha (Regular season: 4-1, 2.78, 1.098 WHIP in 64.2IP; Playoffs: 3GS: 3-0, 0.43, 0.571 WHIP in 21IP) Wacha has never faced the Red Sox or any of Bostons hitters. LINEUP CONSIDERATIONS The Cardinals will make a decision on Carlos Beltrans availability after he takes part in warm up drills and baseball activities this afternoon. Beltran badly bruised the right side of his rib cage crashing into the right field wall while he robbed David Ortiz of a second inning grand slam. Beltran finished the inning in the field but did not return in the third. If Beltran cant play, the Cardinals offence takes an obvious hit. Even if Beltran is in the lineup, he wont be 100 per cent, which will render St. Louis with two hitters in the heart of its order playing under less than ideal conditions. Allen Craig, St. Louis first baseman/dessignated hitter, went 1-for-4 in Game 1, his first action since spraining his foot on September 4 in Cincinnati.dddddddddddd Well see how Craig performs throughout the series but its asking a lot of a player to immediately find his timing and be productive batting in the clean up spot. Red Sox RHP John Lackey (Regular season: 10-13, 3.52, 1.157 WHIP in 189.1IP; Playoffs: 2GS, 2-0, 3.00, 1.167 WHIP in 12IP) Only two Cardinals have ever faced Lackey (Carlos Beltran, Matt Holiday) and neither have a hit in 16 combined at-bats. LINEUP CONSIDERATIONS David Ortiz, held to just two hits in the ALCS (granted one, his Game 2 grand slam, was very important) had as many hits in the World Series opener. He could have had one more but he was robbed of a second inning grand slam by Carlos Beltran. Ortiz singled in the fifth and then hit a two-run home run in the seventh. Bostons 3-4-5 hitters (Dustin Pedroia-Ortiz-Mike Napoli) went 5-for-12 in the game with five RBI and four runs scored. If Ortiz is indeed heating up, the Red Sox are in good shape to win this series. GAME TWO PREDICTION The Cardinals play much better, this is if they stop kicking around the baseball, but the Red Sox get to Michael Wacha and prevail, 5-3, to take a 2-0 series lead to the Midwest.
