The San Jose Sharks are starting to resemble the team that played for the Stanley Cup last season. Dede Westbrook Jaguars Jersey .And while some may have expected Nashville to come out of the West this season to play for the NHLs ultimate prize, the Predators have hardly looked like a team capable of making the playoffs so far.The Sharks and Predators square off Saturday night in their first meeting since San Jose defeated Nashville in a playoff series that went the full seven games in 2015-16.San Jose (5-3-0) dropped three of five on an early season Eastern road trip, but has rebounded quite well once at home again. The Sharks 3-1 win over Columbus on Thursday improved their home record to 3-0-0, pushing them closer to the top of the Pacific Division.The margin is so small between winning and losing, said Sharks goaltender Martin Jones after stopping 24 shots against the Blue Jackets. Weve played better, weve played in the offensive zone a little more, penalty kill has been really good. A lot of little things, I think.Jones has been in goal for all three of the Sharks wins at the SAP Center at San Jose, denying 64 of 67 shots.Last season, Jones lost in his only home start during the regular season when facing the Predators. However, he was in goal throughout the playoff series against Nashville, winning all four games at home while posting a 1.25 goals-against average and .957 save percentage.His 20-save shutout in a 5-0 Game 7 win on May 12 helped San Jose advance. After beating St. Louis in six games to reach the Stanley Cup finals for the first time, the Sharks fell in six games to Pittsburgh in the finals.San Joses special teams play has been sparkling recently, killing off all 12 short-handed situations over the last three games, and surrendering one power-play goal in 19 opportunities over the previous five games.We worked hard at it, San Jose coach Peter DeBoer said Thursday. (Assistant coach) Bob Boughners done a real good job, spent a lot of time on it. ... Like our team game, the guys didnt get down, they kept battling and its been very good for us the last few games.Neither Brent Burns nor Joe Pavelski recorded a point Thursday and remain tied for the team lead with nine points -- each player has three goals and six assists.Logan Couture has struggled recently with no points in his last three games and only one assist over the last five for San Jose. In last seasons playoffs, Couture had multi-point games in four of the seven contests, recording six goals and five assists in the series.Nashville (2-4-1), currently at the bottom of the Central Division, concludes the California portion of a five-game road trip after a five-goal loss to Anaheim on Wednesday and a 3-2 overtime defeat against Los Angeles on Thursday.The Predators are 0-3-1 on the road this season, having given up eight power-play goals in 17 chances.You want to win, and theres always frustration when you dont win, defenseman Roman Josi told the teams website. We know theres a lot of things we can do better, but we cant get too frustrated. Theres a lot of season left, but we have to work on some things and hopefully get better as the season goes on.Viktor Arvidsson assisted on Craig Smiths first-period goal before scoring short-handed early in the third against the Kings. Arvidsson leads the team with four goals this season after posting just eight in 56 games during 2015-16.Arvidssons output has been surprising, but the continued lack of goal-scoring byFilip Forsberg (33 goals in 2015-16) and James Neal (31 goals) has to be a concern for coach Peter Laviolette.Its not coming easy right now as far as offense and the goals, Laviolette told the teams official website. Its just hard to come by now for a lot of our guys ... but in the end, we have to find points, we have to find wins and have to continue to push for that.Arvidsson, Forsberg and Neal combined for four goals and three assists as Nashville went 2-0-1 against San Jose during the regular season in 2015-16.After this game, Nashville will face Colorado on Tuesday and Arizona on Thursday to conclude the road trip. Dawuane Smoot Womens Jersey . -- Stanford squashed Oregons national championship hopes again, schooling the Ducks in power football. Cam Robinson Jaguars Jersey .

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The parcel of land housing the Rio de Janeiro Olympic organizing committee headquarters could become the new location for a United States consular office.The organizing committees temporary home in central Rio will be abandoned in the next few weeks when staff move to smaller quarters in downtown Rio. Rio organizers say only 300 employees remain from a peak of about 5,000 when the games opened on Aug. 5. The committee will be dissolved next year.We have narrowed our search and are finalizing a site -- potentially the current space that Rio2016 now occupies, the Rio de Janeiro consulate said in an email to the Associated Press on Thursday.The organizing committee has been in temporary buildings, which would be dismantled in order for a new building to be erected on the property in a part of town called Cidade Nova (New City).The consulate declined to disclose the purchase price, but Rios most influential newspaper, O Globo, put the figure at 180 million reals ($57.3 million).Consular officials said there was no timeline for the move from its 1950s-era building downtown. The statement called the building a beautiful and historic site, but said its no longer suitable for a diplomatic post.Organizing committee spokesman Mario Andrada said there was some shock as the committee beggan to disband. Cam Robinson Youth Jersey. People were happy the way the Olympics ended, but at the beginning of the phase were in now, it was kind of strange, Andrada said. Well move to a smaller office downtown, and eventually all that will remain will be a lawyers office to deal with eventual legal issues.Andrada said the committee has been busy paying bills, and he said some have complained of late payments.In the beginning we had 20,000 different payments to make, either for creditors or for employees, Andrada said. Now we have about 900. So its moving fast.The privately funded organizing committee ran short of money just as the games opened and needed at least a $30 million bailout in public funding to meet its obligations.The organizing committee has said its operating budget was $2.8 billion, which was for running the game themselves.In addition, Brazil is estimated to have spent $10-12 billion in public and private money to ready the city. Much of the private money was lured in by tax concessions and favorable loan terms from government lenders.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: http://twitter.com/StephenWadeAP .His work can be found at http://bigstory.ap.org/content/stephen-wade 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 ' ' '
