    OTTAWA - Daniel Alfredsson on Thursday morning donned his old Ottawa Senators No. [b]Air Max 95 Femme Pas Cher[/b] . 11 jersey and announced his retirement from the NHL. Here is his speech in its entirety:One evening nearly 20 years ago a young man in a small town in Sweden got a phone call that would change his life. It was an invitation to play hockey in Canada. I had never been to North America, I had a young girlfriend, Bibbi, and it was a long way from Goteborg to Ottawa. But we made the leap. We began an incredible new chapter of our lives in your town starting in August 1995. Our marvellous boys were born here, and we grew from youngsters into aging parents. You made your town our town. Thank you.It was an incredible experience to play hockey with so many great players, so many great friends over so many great seasons. I really realize that Im a very lucky guy. Even more important to me than my time on the ice was my time in our city, meeting new people, making new friends, watching my boys grow, and most of all beginning a campaign to help change attitudes towards those struggling with mental illness. My work with the Royal Ottawa Hospital has been another high point in my life. Whatever I gave has been more than repaid in seeing the changes beginning to happen and some of the lives that I have touched. It is still an important part of my life and will continue to be so.Some of you may remember nearly four years ago now, my body started sending me signals that all these years of hockey had a cost. My back began to act up, and I began to have the kind of issues bodies develop after years of physical work. I worked hard to fight it off and I got some great help along the way and I got another two great seasons in Ottawa and a third one last year. But in the back of my mind, I still knew that the clock is ticking. Then on a Saturday morning two summers ago, I got another phone call from an old Swedish pal of mine. This call started a process that would launch the next chapter in our lives. It was a very, very hard decision to make: changing teams, uproot my family, start over again in a new place. But change helps you grow. New experiences are as important when youre young, like my children, as they were for me at 22 or even today. Weve had a great year in Detroit: new friends, a new team, new adventures. Thank you Detroit.Ive grown and learned a lot in the past 18 months. I realize that you never stop learning, especially when youre open to new beginnings and new chapters. Then last season my body began to complain once more. The old injury and the hard work of recovery began all over again. I worked hard to rehab my back this summer so I could play another year. However, about three weeks ago I realized its time to retire. Its another hard decision. Then I got another important phone call from Ottawa. Bryan said he and Mr. Melnyk had spoken and had an idea that I should not end my career in Detroit but with a proper retirement here in our adopted hometown. I spoke with Ken Holland about my retirement and that Bryan and Mr. Melnyk wanted me to retire as an Ottawa Senator, and Ken encouraged me to retire here. He said its the right thing to do.I was taken aback by this offer. I never believed that my career entitled me to any special treatment. However Bibbi and I both agreed this was the right thing to do and it would give us a chance to say thank you to the people and the fans of Ottawa. So here we are. Today I officially retire as an Ottawa Senator and another new chapter will begin tonight as we say goodbye to Ottawa. The future may hold some role for me in hockey again, but not this year. This is one for my family, for my own life and for reflecting on where weve been and deciding on whats next. For now Im just very grateful for this opportunity to say thank you and goodbye, and please no more phone calls for a while.Let me just say thank you to Ottawa, to the Sens, to the Sens fans and especially to Mr. Melnyk, thank you. And to Bryan. I really appreciate this. Merci et a bientot. Thank you.

[b]Vapormax Flyknit Pas Cher[/b] . - The RBC Canadian Open will return to Glen Abbey Golf Club next year, marking the 27th time that the national open championship will be played at the Oakville, Ont.The Chicago Blackhawks will try to avoid a third straight loss in the Western Conference Final when they visit the Los Angles Kings for Mondays Game 4 battle at Staples Center. Follow the action live NOW on TSN and TSN GO, beginning with the NHL on TSN pre-game show. The Blackhawks won the opener of this set 3-1 and then held a 2-0 lead late in the second period of Game 2 before Los Angeles came alive. The Kings used a furious comeback to take the second meeting in Chicago by a 6-2 score and then posted a 4-3 decision in Saturdays Game 3 in L.A. to grab a 2-1 edge in this best-of-seven series. The defending Stanley Cup champions hope to turn things around on Monday and even this set at two games apiece before it heads back to Chicago for Wednesdays Game 5. The Blackhawks beat the Kings in five games during the West finals a year ago before downing Boston to win the Cup for the second time in four seasons. Chicago is 2-5 on the road in the 2014 playoffs after Saturdays loss. The Kings are 4-3 on home ice this postseason. Jeff Carter has fueled the Kings offence over the last two games, recording four goals and three assists over Games 2 and 3. Carter recorded a hat trick and an assist in Game 2 and added a goal and two assists to help L.A. win Saturday on home ice. According to Elias Sports Bureau, Carter is the first Kings player to register three or more points in consecutive playoff games since Wayne Gretzky did it in 1993. After scoring six straight to win Game 2 in a rout, the Kings lit the lamp three straight times after falling behind, 2-1, on Saturday. Carter scored the tying goal at 8:08 of the second period in Game 3 and set up the go-ahead goal by Tyler Toffoli six minutes later. Carter has 19 points (8G, 11A) this postseason, one point behind teammate Anze Kopitar for the NHL lead. Drew Doughty had a goal and an assist, while Slava Voynov notched a power-play marker for the Kings, who can take a stranglehold in this series tonight. "Two-to-one series against the defending Stanley Cup Champs, I dont think theres taking control of a series," said Los Angeles forward Dustin Brown. "I think that both teams have shown that they are able to battle adversity. This is a team that was down last year and found a way to come back, so we did what we wanted tonight and got the lead in the series. Now its about resetting and reloading. Were up in the series, we have to keep going up." Jonathan Quick stopped 24 shots in Saturdays win, while Corey Crawford allowed all four goals on 32 shots for the Blackhawks, who went 0-for-4 on the power play. Chicago captain Jonathan Toews scored two goals in a losing effort. [b]Air Max 97 Pas Cher Solde[/b]. After his clubs second straight loss, Toews said now is not the time for frustration to set in. "We played well but we didnt get the result we wanted tonight," said Toews. "Well keep improving and move on to the next one. There is no time for getting discouraged and frustrated. We know we can keep pushing it to that next level and that is what its going to take against these guys. Clearly they want it badly and are playing really hard. For us I think its just a matter of continuing that effort that we started with in the first period." Toews scored short-handed 5:26 into Saturdays game, but Voynov tallied just 50 seconds later off a feed from Carter to even the score. Toews added his second goal of the game with 6:41 remaining in the first, but that would be Chicagos last goal until Patrick Sharp tallied in the closing seconds of regulation. Los Angeles tied the game at 8:08 of the second period on Carters eighth of the playoffs. Tanner Pearson fought for the puck behind the net and sent a pass to the front where Carter one-timed it in. The Kings took their first lead of the game six minutes later after a neutral zone turnover saw Carter chip the puck through the middle and behind the defence. Toffoli caught up to the puck and went backhand to forehand before sliding it in for his sixth of the playoffs and a 3-2 lead. "Getting pucks deep and getting lots of pucks to the net and creating traffic, you cant score goals unless you get the puck on net and drive to the net," said Toffoli. "If you look at our goals tonight, its cut into our system and were executing well right now." Quick stopped 10 shots in the second frame and helped Los Angeles kill off two penalties to keep the lead. The score stayed at 3-2 until Doughty tallied on a blast from the top of the right circle with 8:03 left in the third. Sharp scored with just 4.2 seconds remaining, but Chicago was unable to get another shot on net before time expired. Patrick Kane, last seasons Conn Smythe winner for the Blackhawks, has yet to register a point in the first three games of the series, but he hopes to break out in Game 4. "Just demand (the puck)," Kane said about how he can get on track. "Thats the biggest thing. Demand the puck and when I do get it be confident with it. Those two things will generally lead to better games from myself." This series marks the first time two teams are meeting in the Western finals in back-to-back years since the Stars/Avalanche in 1999-2000. ' ' '
