PITTSBURGH, Pa. Brendan Langley Jersey . - Robert Bortuzzos main responsibility is to protect Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin. The towering Pittsburgh Penguins defenceman is unapologetic in his aggressive approach, figuring if he does his job, then his teams stars can do theirs.One board-rattling second-period collision with New Jerseys Jaromir Jagr on Tuesday night sent a jolt that could resonate for months. Bortuzzos run-in with Jagr woke up his teammates and Malkin provided the games only goal 2:32 into the third period as the Penguins edged the reeling Devils 1-0.Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 29 shots for his NHL-leading fifth shutout, but it was Bortuzzos meeting with the future Hall of Famer that will be remembered when the teams meet again in New Jersey on Dec. 29.Jagr chased a puck to the right corner behind the Pittsburgh net and sent it around the boards. The puck was gone by the time the 6-foot-4 Bortuzzo barrelled into him and sent Jagr onto the ice face-first.Totally unnecessary, New Jersey coach Peter DeBoer said. You know, if one of our guys had done that to Crosby thered be World War Four.Jagr laid on the ice for several minutes before woozily making his way to the dressing room. He received a surprisingly warm ovation from the Pittsburgh crowd, which has lustily booed Jagr from the moment the two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Penguins left in 2001.Penguins coach Mike Johnston felt the hit was clean and Bortuzzo was repentant.I thought the puck was there, Bortuzzo said. I kept my shoulder down, felt like I hit him in the chest. Its unfortunate he went out of the game, but like I said, just playing hard.Jagr was alongside a handful of banged up teammates in the dressing room when Malkin ended a brilliant end-to-end rush by taking a feed from Jayson Megna and beat Cory Schneider with a backhand. Steady play from Fleury made it stand up as the Penguins won for the fourth time in five games.We told our guys it might be one of those games where we might just have to will it out in the third period, Johnston said. We hung in there with it. We stuck with it. We guarded against frustration for the most part and I thought we did a good job in a really tough game.Schneider made 22 saves but received little help. New Jersey generated few quality chances against Fleury, who has won six straight at home against the Devils.Gomez played 22 minutes in his return to the Devils after being signed on Monday but couldnt stop New Jersey from being shut out for the second time in eight days.Whether its 20 minutes or five minutes, its good to be out there, Gomez said. It just happened tonight. Everyone kind of had a double shift. We still came up short and we have to find a way to put it in.Pittsburghs patched-together lineup lacked injured defenceman Kris Letang and banged-up forwards Chris Kunitz and Marcel Goc. In their place were fill-ins such as Andrew Ebbett and Scott Wilson, who was called up from Wilkes-Barre Scranton on Tuesday morning when Crosby missed the pregame skate with an illness. While the reigning MVP played in his 574th game — the eighth most in team history — Crosby was surrounded by a sea of largely unfamiliar faces.Then again, the Penguins received little sympathy from New Jersey. The Devils brought back the well-travelled Gomez hoping he could give the struggling lineup a needed energy boost.The 34-year-old last played for New Jersey in 2007, when the Devils lost to Ottawa in the Eastern Conference semifinals. He began the night as the young guy on a first line that included the 42-year-old Jagr and 38-year-old Patrik Elias, only to have Jagr and Elias head to the trainers room.Im not going to forget what number (Bortuzzo) is, New Jersey forward Jordin Tootoo said. Its a long season, so at the same time, we have to worry about our guys in the locker room here and get back on the winning ways.NOTES: Jagr had three shots before leaving and now has 5,160 for his career, passing Al MacInnis for third on the NHLs all-time list. Marcel Dionne is second with 5,366. ... Pittsburgh went 0 for 3 on the power play and is now 3 of its last 23 with the man advantage. ... Kunitz is out at least a couple weeks with a fractured foot. ... The Penguins host Vancouver on Thursday night. New Jersey plays at Toronto on Thursday. Shaquil Barrett Jersey .com) - Matt Beleskey has helped give the Anaheim Ducks some scoring depth and hell look to stay hot on Wednesday night when his club hosts the struggling Philadelphia Flyers. Isaac Yiadom Jersey . But this time, the Gunners weathered the storm. Arsene Wengers team was on the ropes in the early stages of a lively FA Cup tie, until Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored a goal against the run of the play. http://www.officialdenverbroncosfootball.com/authentic-customized-womens . The Leafs were back on the ice Wednesday following an 10-day break. It apparently wasnt long enough, as Team Canadas 2-1 win over Latvia didnt conclude before the Leafs began practice. "I was thinking we might get a little delay, but it was nice to get out there," said Tyler Bozak of watching Wednesdays game.With new regulations and preseason testing already difficult, Red Bull has the added stress of whether Daniel Ricciardo has what it takes to drive alongside Sebastian Vettel. Although Vettels relationship with Mark Webber was often difficult, Webber was a driver who guaranteed a healthy haul of points and his retirement from Formula One has left Red Bull with a void to fill. "It is a huge opportunity and privilege to work alongside a four-time world champion in Sebastian," Ricciardo said. "I am really looking forward to it." With the constructors title to defend, Red Bull needs Ricciardo to perform consistently well. "I would love to be as competitive as soon as possible," he said. "After some time, hopefully not too long, I want the team to know that I am capable of getting some top results." This is even more the case given how their rivals are shaping up. Ferrari boasts two world champions -- Fernando Alonso and Kimi Raikkonen -- and the Mercedes pair of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg will have gained confidence from last season, winning three races and securing eight pole positions between them and challenging Red Bull for pure speed. Replacing one Australian driver with another makes for a nice symmetry, but the gulf between Ricciardo and Webber remains huge. Webber won nine GPs and finished thhird three times in the championship race, while the 24-year-old Ricciardo is in his third season and his best race finish is seventh. Derek Wolfe Jersey. Rivals will hope that a slow start from Ricciardo will impact on Red Bulls confidence and unsettle Vettel over the course of the season. A strong start on his home track in Melbourne could be just the early boost Ricciardo needs to silence the doubters. "I wont need much psyching up, Melbourne will take care of that. Being the sole Australian I am sure there will be a lot of attention," Ricciardo said. "People talk about pressure, but for me it is exciting, the adrenaline will be pumping." How Ricciardo fares in qualifying could also play a factor in how well Vettel does. Red Bull has been consistent in qualifying over the years, often leading races from 1-2 on the grid and making it more difficult for opponents to get to Vettel. But if Ricciardo is qualifying lower down the grid, this could leave Vettel more exposed to attack. The problems experienced in preseason testing offer further encouragement to Red Bulls rivals. "Were definitely not up to scratch with where wed like to be," Ricciardo said during the final preseason testing in Bahrain recently. "Its clear we probably wont come out to Melbourne and dominate as the team did last year."
