EAST RUTHERFORD, N. Jeremy Roenick Jersey .J. -- When the NFL chose the Giants and Jets to host the 2014 Super Bowl at MetLife Stadium, there was some wishful thinking in the area that the locals might somehow find a way to play in the first cold-weather title game in the modern era. The annual preseason game for the bragging rights to Saturday would then be a preview to a February showdown in front of the world. Yup. It was wishful thinking. With the 2013 regular season opener just weeks away, the Giants (1-1) and Jets (1-1) are longshots to reach the Super Bowl. Neither made the playoffs last year and neither is favoured to win their division this season. The Jets are still looking for a quarterback. The Giants need a defence. And both Rex Ryan and Tom Coughlin have a ton of questions to answer. Coughlin, who led the Giants to Super Bowl titles in 2008 and 2012, hasnt avoided talking about the big game being in the backyard. There is a countdown clock in the Giants locker room. "Thats a nice thing to be aware of," Coughlin said. "But we have a long way to go to be in that situation. But lofty goals? Yeah. There are 32 teams that the Super Bowl championship is their goal right now. But we have to make sure we take care of all the nuts and bolts in order to get to a position where youre even able to compete for something like that. "Yes, it is a reminder. Its all positive, provided all the work that has to go into it prevails." The Giants have undergone changes since missing the playoffs with a 9-7 record. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw was let go in a salary-cap move and defensive tackle Chris Canty and linebacker Michael Boley were released from a defence that finished 31st overall. So far this season, injuries have forced the offensive line to change two spots and kept defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul off the field. Eli Manning has managed one touchdown drive in two preseason games, and the defence still has not generated a pass rush. "Its always a big game," said Manning, whose favourite target, Victor Cruz, will be out with a heel injury. "Most times its the third preseason game. The starters are going to play a bunch. Its an important game for us to go out there and try to play well." The game is even more important for the Jets. Rookie Geno Smith, a second-round draft pick, will start at quarterback in his bid to take the job from Mark Sanchez. Ryan also hopes to give Chris Ivory more work at running back and to get a little more out of his defence, which has been so-so in the preseason. Playing the Giants, however, seems raise the interest level. Jets guard Willie Colon was raised in New York City and attended Hofstra, so he is very familiar with the rivalry despite experiencing it for the first time as a player. "Its another challenge for us to go out there and show up and get ready for the season," Colon said. "They have a good outfit. Their championships speak (volumes) for them and for us were trying to get on the ball and get things going, so its going to be a great night for us." Before coming to the Giants in 2011, punter Steve Weatherford played for the Jets. He said the rivalry always ratchets things up a little, even in the preseason. "If we win the game, thats just the cherry on the top," Weatherford said. "We just want to stay healthy." Giants veteran cornerback Corey Webster smiled when asked about the Jets. "I dont think about the Jets at all," said Webster, who is going to miss his second straight game with groin and knee injuries. "Thats not disrespect or anything. They are an NFL team from across town and I wish them all the best, but were focused on us. There is a little rivalry when you have two teams in the same town sharing a whole bunch of stuff. "But ultimately, I want to win every game and it doesnt matter who we are playing." Antti Raanta Jersey . Dallas (2-0-1) sits atop the Western Conference with an MLS-best seven points. Castillo opened the scoring in the 71st minute off a Mauro Diaz set piece, and Watson outran defender Tony Lochhead on a long ball and then juked goalkeeper Ian Kennedy for the eventual game-winner in the 78th minute. Alex Goligoski Jersey . Speaking on Leafs Lunch with Bryan Hayes and Jamie McLennan on Thursday, Bernier said it was "very hard" at times being entrenched behind Jonathan Quick and is now excited at the prospect of getting an opportunity to compete with Reimer for the top spot with the Leafs. http://www.authenticcoyotesshopnhl.com/wayne-gretzky-jersey/ .com) - The Carolina Hurricanes hope to remain perfect at home in January on Friday night as they welcome the Vancouver Canucks to PNC Arena.TORONTO -- Josh Leivo scored a hat trick as the Toronto Marlies downed the Lake Erie Monsters 4-1 on Saturday afternoon in American Hockey League action. Brendan Kozun also scored for the Marlies (34-19-4), who lost to Lake Erie the night before. Christopher Gibson improved to 3-1-1 with Toronto, making 21 saves in the win. Colin Smith scored for the Monsters (24-27-6), while Kent Patterson made 34 saves in the loss. With the win, Toronto improves to 4-3-0 against Lake Erie this season and have won six of their last eight games overall. The loss leaves the Monsters with just two wins in six games. The Marlies forward gave Toronto a 3-1 lead at 12:14, on a power play. Leivo took a feed from Spencer Abbott and beat Patterson five-hole for his 15th of the season and second of the night. Leivo completed the hat trick, giving Toronto a 4-1 lead at 19:11 picking up a loose puck at the side of the net and beating Patterson glove-side for his 16th of the season. Saturday was Leivos second career AHL hat trick with his first coming in a 5-2 win over the Utica Comets Jan. 4. Kozun gave Toronto a 2-1 lead, on a power play, at 9:13 of the second grabbing the bounce off the end boards and beating Patterson for his 17th of the season. Smith opened the scoring at 13:04 of the first beating Gibson glove-sidde for his seventh of the season. Jason Demers Jersey. Leivo tied it 1-1, on a power play, at 18:38 picking up the rebound off Greg McKeggs shot, which hit the post, and beating Patterson for his 14th of the season. With the two teams playing one another for a third consecutive game, and the second time in as many nights, tempers were high. Both teams combined for 10 fighting majors and 195 minutes in penalties during Friday nights 3-2 Monsters win. Lake Erie and Toronto combined for 132 penalty minutes and nine fighting majors Saturday. The two clubs meet for the eighth and final time on March 19 in Lake Erie. Toronto hosts the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Penguins Sunday to conclude a three-game, three-night stretch. Notes: With David Clarkson (pulled muscle) questionable for Saturday nights game against the Flyers, the Maple Leafs recalled forward Frazer McLaren from the Marlies. The Marlies signed defenceman Bryce Aneloski to a professional try out contract on Friday. Toronto recalled defenceman Dylan Yeo and goaltender Christopher Gibson from Orlando of the ECHL and reassigned goalie Garret Sparks to the Solar Bears Friday. Gibson is 8-9-2 with a .924 save percentage and a 2.55 goals-against average in 20 games with Orlando this season. Marlies captain Trevor Smith was a healthy scratch.
