The two clubs met earlier in the event with the Kings taking the win but the finals were a much different story with the Oilers winning 7-3.Devan Mytopher of the Oilers said it was important for the team to keep the Kings out of their zone and capitalize on their chances when they presented themselves.“They took it to us the other day and we just came back. They’re a really good hockey team; well put together. We just knew if we didn’t let them get in our zone very much that we would have a chance.”- Advertisement -The difference between the two games was the Kings goaltender according to Mytopher who gave him props for usually being solid between the pipes.“Our shots were going in so it was a lot different than the game before.

Proof Kane is one of Europe’s best strikers

first_img 6 6 Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane delivered the goods once again for Mauricio Pochettino as he hit his 11th goal in ten games, against West Ham.The strike, a rebound from his own missed penalty, ensured Spurs stole a point when it had looked like their London rivals were about to leave White Hart Lane with all three.But where does the striker’s sensational Premier League form see him ranked in Europe? talkSPORT takes a look…Click through our gallery to find out the most prolific goalscorers on the continent. 5. Claudio Beauvue (Guingamp) – Eight goals in his last ten games – A 26-year-old striker from Guadeloupe striker, Beauvue is a shock inclusion in the top 14. He’s been prolific this season and has as many goals in Ligue 1 as Zlatan Ibrahimovic. 2. Arjen Robben (Bayern Munich), Bas Dost (Wolfsburg), Antoine Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Harry Kane (Tottenham) – 11 goals in their last ten games – It might be all about Harry Kane in the Premier League but over in the Bundesliga ex-Chelsea star Robben is in fine fettle, while one-time Aston Villa and Newcastle target Dost is in the form is his life. 6 6 6 6= Kevin De Bruyne (Wolfsburg), David Silva (Man City), Alexander Meier (Eintracht Frankfurt), Mario Mandzukic (Atletico Madrid), Charlie Austin (QPR), Luciano Vietto (Villarreal) – Seven goals in their last ten games – Over the last ten matches a host of stars have hit the back seven times, including ex-Chelsea star De Bruyne who is in sensational form over in the Bundesliga. 3. Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon) – Ten goals in his last ten games – Liverpool and Arsenal are amongst the sides chasing France international Lacazette as he leads the goalscoring charts in Ligue 1 with 21 strikes. He didn’t score in his return from injury again Nantes at the weekend but he’s likely to find the goal trail again soon. 4. Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) – Nine goals in his last ten games – He’s out of form, apparently. So that means Ronaldo is only the fourth best scorer in Europe at this moment in time. Poor show from the three-time Ballon d’Or winner – must do better. 6 1. Lionel Messi (Barcelona) – 13 goals in his last ten games – It shouldn’t come as much of a shock but Argentine superstar Messi is currently the most in-form goalscorer in Europe. Trebles against Deportivo and Levante have helped him reach a tally of 13 strikes in his last ten games.last_img read more

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: A young boy has pleaded guilty to attacking a retired nurse in broad daylight and knocking her unconscious.The boy, who was just 14 at the time of the horrific robbery, now wants to meet with Letterkenny woman Anna McDaid to say sorry.Mrs McDaid, who is in her late 60s, was brutally set upon at McClure’s Terrace while on her way to Letterkenny Post Office in August last year. She was knocked unconscious, suffered a broken arm, a dislocated shoulder and had to be hospitalised for a week in an attack which shocked the public.Her attacker, who is now 15, has now appeared at Milford District Court charged with assault and robbery.The boy, who was accompanied by his parents, cannot be named for legal reasons.The court was told the boy was with another man and he shouted to her “Give me the money” before knocking her over and stealing her handbag.The bag was found a short time later with €300 missing from it.Mrs McDaid was knocked unconscious and was found and helped by local businessman Brendan McGlynn who contacted her family.Solicitor for the accused Kieran Dillon said the boy now wanted to try and make up for the awful hurt he had caused Mrs McDaid.He said that at the time of the attack, the lad had been under the influence of other people and did not have the maturity to say no to them.Mr Dillon said the boy had been causing his parents all sorts of problems before the attack in Letterkenny.He also revealed how the boy’s parents had tried to discipline him by cutting off his pocket-money which proved disastrous.“He came to Letterkenny and had something in his mind. He had no pocket-money because his parents had cut it because they were trying to control him.“Mrs McDaid became the victim and he caused her the most serious difficulties possible. It was a purely random attack and Mrs McDaid was not targeted.“We have an apology in court and my client would like to meet her if possible to let her know how sorry he is. That is up to her.“All we can do now is to reassure her how sorry we are,” he said.Mr Dillon also produced €500 in court to compensate the €300 and an extra €200 for Mrs McDaid “as a small gesture for all she has suffered.”Garda Inspector David Murphy told the court that although there was another person involved in the attack, it is unlikely they will come before the court.At the time Mrs McDaid’s husband described the attack on his wife as “despicable.” “We have lived in the town all our lives and we have never had anything even remotely like this happen to us before.“What this person did to my wife was just despicable. How anybody can do this to another person I just do not know.”Solicitor Mr Dillon also revealed that the accused was now being home-schooled and was attending a child psychologist.Judge Paul Kelly said he was shocked by the crime.“This is a very nasty and mean crime to a defenceless old lady who suffered a serious injury.“He is very lucky he is not facing much more serious charges and consequences on his conscience.“However I am depressed with how you have met the matter,” he said.Judge Kelly ordered a probation report so he can best deal with the case and ordered the boy to appear before him again on June 13th.EndsBOY WHO ATTACKED AND ROBBED LETTERKENNY NURSE WANTS TO MEET TO SAY SORRY was last modified: April 12th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Anna McDaidattackedretired nurselast_img read more

first_imgA TEN-year-old boy has been awarded more than €5,000 in court today – for cutting his knee.The settlement relates to an incident at Ostan Gweedore Hotel three years ago.Barrister Patricia McLaughlin told Donegal Circuit Civil Court, sitting in Letterkenny today, that the child had arrived at the hotel on July 12, 2009 with his mother and sister. Whilst the child’s mother was locking the car, her son fell on grass in the grounds of the hotel and cut his knee.Judge Petria McDonnell was told that the hotel management were not told of the incident at the time.“The first they knew of it was a letter which arrived a year later,” said Ms McLaughlin.The hotel, she said, was not accepting liability but was prepared to settle the claim.It was still not clear, said the barrister, how the cut came about but the boy had to receive eight stitches for a wound to his knee.“There are no long term effects and the boy in fact wears the scar as a badge of honour I’m told,” said Ms McLaughlin.She said the hotel had made a low all-in offer to the boy which totalled €6,000 to cover costs and the injury and the boy would receive €5,059.90 as part of the settlement.DONEGAL BOY (10) GETS €5,000 FOR CUT KNEE was last modified: October 15th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:boycut kneeDonegal circuit civil courtostan Gweedorelast_img read more
