MONTREAL -- Guy Lapointe was gardening in his front yard last week when Montreal Canadiens owner Geoff Molson pulled up to his house for an unannounced visit. Gustav Nyquist Jersey . Lapointe didnt know what was in store for him. As it turned out, the former Canadiens defenceman was about to receive an unexpected honour. From Lapointes kitchen in Saint-Lazare, Que., Molson announced that the Hall-of-Famer will become the 18th player in Canadiens history to have his jersey retired by the team. The retirement ceremony will occur during the course of this coming National Hockey League season. "Its extraordinary," Lapointe said Thursday at the Canadiens Hall of Fame, located at the Bell Centre. "With the people Ill be next to -- Jean Beliveau, Henri Richard, Guy Lafleur, Larry Robinson, Serge Savard -- I just cant stop thinking about it. I was happy with just looking up at those jerseys. I never thought, in all sincerity, that my number would be retired. It never crossed my mind." On Thursday, the Canadiens organization made official the decision to retire Lapointes No. 5, the first jersey to be honoured since 2009 when Elmer Lach and Emile (Butch) Bouchard received whats considered one of the most prestigious honours in sports. Lapointe, 66, will finally be reunited with his Big Three teammates -- Savard and Robinson -- in the Bell Centre rafters. Savards No. 18 was retired in 2006, and Robinsons No. 19 joined the following year. Known as much for their staunch defending and offensive prowess, the Big Three were instrumental in Montreals six Stanley Cup victories in the 1970s. And the three defencemen were on hand at the Bell Centre on Thursday to celebrate Lapointes big day. "Im happy to see you both here," the Montreal native Lapointe told his former teammates before pointing to the rafters. "But Ill be even happier to see you up there when my jersey is going to be retired." Between 1968 and 1984, Lapointe played 16 seasons in the NHL -- 12 of them with the Canadiens before brief stints with the St. Louis Blues and Boston Bruins. Always a threat on the power play, Lapointe was known for his explosive speed, his inspired bouts of offence, and his rocket of a slapshot. He recorded 622 points in 894 career games, and ranks second in goals by a Canadiens defenceman with 166. Nicknamed Pointu, Lapointe had three consecutive 20-goal seasons, and still holds the Canadiens record for most goals in a year by a defenceman with 28. In his first complete season with the Habs in 1970-71, Lapointes 15 goals set a franchise record for a rookie defenceman. The record still stands today. "A lot of minutes in a lot of situations -- thats the way he was," said Robinson of Lapointe, whom he compared to Montreals P.K. Subban. "Guy could hold his own against anybody. He could play in all situations, play a lot of minutes. Thats the reason hes in the Hall of Fame. "Its very fitting to have his sweater up there. Im glad I got mine up there first -- I finally beat him at something." Lapointe was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1993, two years before Robinson. He won six Stanley Cups -- all with the Canadiens -- including four consecutive championships between 1976 and 1979. "I grew up with this excellent organization," said Lapointe, who also pointed to the 1972 Summit Series in Moscow and 1976 Canada Cup -- both memorable victories for Canada -- as exceptional moments in his career. "The Canadiens helped me become a better hockey player and a better person. The team allowed me to reach goals I didnt even think were possible. "Winning was always our goal. That paid dividends throughout my career. I was a lucky person to make the team. I owe a lot to the Montreal Canadiens. Theyve been very good to me." Off the ice, Lapointe was known as a prankster, notorious for shaking hands with former Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau with a palm covered in Vaseline. After Lach and Bouchard had their jerseys retired in 2009 -- the ninth and 10th such commemorative event in the five years leading up to the Canadiens centennial anniversary -- the teams organization put the process on hold. Fans clamoured for Lapointe to join the Canadiens legends in the rafters, including the defencemans daughter Stephanie, who started a petition last year to have her fathers jersey retired. "Dreams really do come true!" Stephanie Lapointe tweeted on Wednesday when the news was announced. "Never give up! I am beyond proud of my dad! Finally he is being awarded this honour!" Molson says the Canadiens organizations focus over the last five years has been rebuilding the team on the ice. On Thursday, he said the time was finally right to give Lapointe his long-awaited recompense. "Its a name that kept resurfacing when we bought the team in 2009," said Molson of the final Big Three defenceman. "We were in the process of retiring a lot of jerseys at that time. "I feel good about the organization (now). I feel good about the development of our players, the general manager, and our support staff. Were well on our way to having a winning organization year after year. The fans have had a break from the centennial celebrations. And its a nice surprise for Lapointe." Notes: Lapointe is currently the Minnesota Wilds amateur scouting co-ordinator. a Robinson flew up from San Jose, Calif., on two days notice for the event. a Howie Morenzs No. 7 was the first jersey retired by the Canadiens, in 1937. a Lapointes is the second No. 5 to be retired by the Canadiens. He joins Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoffrion, whose jersey was raised to the rafters in 2006. Mike Green Red Wings Jersey . Ouellette, from Montreal, already has three Olympic gold medals since joining the team in 1999. Teemu Pulkkinen Jersey .5 million per season with defenceman Chris Phillips. Phillips deal reportedly includes a no-trade clause.If New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning wants to continue his hot stretch Sunday night, all he has to do is look for No. 26. That number would belong to Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Cary Williams. Williams and the Eagles secondary have been the subject of criticism all season for giving up long pass plays and touchdowns regularly. Everybody on the outside looking in has no clue as to what we do in this defense or whats necessary for us to accomplish our goals as a cornerback or whats our job on a particular play, Williams said. Even some commentators dont necessarily know what goes on because theyre not sitting in the meeting rooms with us. Its a false perception, I guess, to a degree. But I mean it just is what it is. Its a hard life for a cornerback. And I think weve got the guys in our room to get the job done. Now the NFC East-rival Giants come marching into Lincoln Financial Field for a primetime matchup and are riding high with three straight wins following an 0-2 start. The Giants have scored 30 or more points in each of the past three contests, averaging 35.0 ppg in that time, and Manning is at the forefront. Catch all the action on TSN1, TSN4, and TSN5 starting at 7pm et/4pm pt. Manning has been protecting the ball during the win streak, tossing eight touchdown passes to just one interception. He had four INTs and three TD passes in the winless start to the season. Manning said in training camp he wanted to complete 70 percent of his passes and so far under offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo his numbers are at 66.3. McAdoos offense is predicated on quick releases, shorter throws and timely reads, and Manning has paid attention to every detail. The 11 touchdown passes tie Mannings career high through the first five games and he should eclipse last seasons total of 18. Manning, who has posted three straight games with a rating above 100, helped lead the Giants to a 30-20 win over the Atlanta Falcons last weekend and connected with rookie Odell Beckham Jr. on a 15-yard scoring strike during 13-point fourth quarter. The Giants scored the last 20 points to erase a 10-point hole. The fourth quarter was ours, Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said. It was very good. Congratulate our team. We battled back and we won the fourth quarter and looked like the Giants in the second half and all three areas contributed very well. Beckham made his NFL debut and had missed the start of the season because of a hamstring injury suffered in training camp. He gives Manning another weapon on offense, joining wide receiver Victor Cruz and tight end Larry Donnell. Rookie running back Andre Williams will take over for Rashad Jennings, who is expected to miss a few weeks with a sprained MCL. Williams got the Giants rolling with a three-yard TD run versus Atlanta and finished with 65 yards. Williams is excited for his first NFL start. I am very excited, Williams said. It is going to be my first start. I just want to prepare as well as I can and make sure I am ready to compete at the highest level I can. Williams and Beckham were the first Giants rookies to score TDs by rushing and receiving, respectively, in the same game since George Adams and Mark Bavaro did it twice in 1985. New York is 3-2 and one game behind Philadelphia and Dallas for the division lead. The Cowboys have a tough one this week at Seattle and will host the Giants on Oct. 19. The Eagles will have their hands full defensively and are 24th against the rush (132.0), 25th in points allowed (26.4), 28th in yards allowed (406.2) and 29th in pass defense (274.2). Opponents havent had trouble moving the football against the Eagles. St. Louis had 466 yards in Sundays 34-28 loss and Rams rookie quarterback Austin Davis threw for 375 yards and three touchdowns. San Francisco racked up 407 yards the week before and got 119 yards on 24 carries from Frank Gore. Washington amassed 511 yards in Week 3 and both Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson reached the 100-yard receiving mark. Jacksonville and Indianapolis had more than 300 yards apiece against the Eagles over the first two weeks. Philadelphia may be just one of five teams allowing more than 400 yards, but its 4-1 record is tied for the best in the league. Tough 4-1, soft 4-1, it doesnt matter, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly remarked after beating the Rams. Youre 4-1. Its the same thing. You could be 1-4, 4-1, youve got to go back to work on Tuesday. The defensive line is playing a lot better under coordinator Bill Davis. His unit has recorded eight sacks in the past two games and must continue to pressure the quarterback. Linebacker Connor Barwin leads the Eagles with three sacks, while Trent Cole has 2 1/2 and Vinny Curry two. The defense could be without linebackers DeMeco Ryans (groin) and Mychal Kendricks (calf). Kendrricks hasnt played since a Monday night win over the Colts. Justin Abdelkader Jersey. Ryans, though, said he expects to play and it was precautionary missing Tuesdays training session as well as Wednesdays. Just precautionary, Ryans said. I just want to see how I feel. From Sunday to today I feel like Ive made some strides. Im feeling better. If it keeps going like its going, by the end of the week Im feeling good and hopefully I can go. Casey Matthews and Emmanuel Acho will see more action if both Ryans and Kendricks are sidelined. Ryans is confident Matthews can handle the Giants. Caseys stepped in and hes done a really good job, Ryans said. Hes progressed over the past few weeks, and last week he played his best game. The Giants are 82-74-2 in the regular season against the Eagles (2-2 playoffs) and have split the last four meetings between the teams. Including the playoffs, the Eagles have won eight of the previous 10 matchups. Coughlin is 11-11 (0-2 playoffs) in games versus the Eagles in the regular season. WHAT TO WATCH FOR Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is 7-0 with 13 touchdown passes and three interceptions in the past seven at home. He is trying to keep that streak going and also improve on his overall play Sunday night. Were continuing to progress, said Foles, who has thrown five INTs already after just two in 2013. Were in spurts, and we want to be more consistent as an offense. But I saw us moving in the right direction. We just have to come out here this week, make more corrections and continue to work on execution. Ive just missed a few throws. Ive missed five percent more throws, and thats something that you want to continue to get better at, continue to grow each week. You want to be more accurate each week and you want to be a better player each week, and thats what I strive to do each and every day is just grow. He has been sacked just once in the last four games after going down five times in Week 1 to the Jaguars. Foles has the weapons around him in Jeremy Maclin, Jordan Matthews, Darren Sproles and LeSean McCoy to name a few. McCoy was taken out of the game during the end of Sundays win because running backs coach Duce Staley wanted fresh legs. You cant blame Staley for doing whats best for the team. McCoy ran for a season-high 81 yards on 24 carries, but has only one TD run this season. He reached the end zone back in Week 2 at Indianapolis. McCoy liked what he saw from last week and got right tackle Lane Johnson back in the starting lineup. It felt good having Lane in there. Lane has always been the type of player who gets it done. He is fast, physical and very intelligent, McCoy said. So, I was happy to have him out there. He helped us out today. New Yorks defense is allowing 99.0 yards rushing this season (10th in NFL) and hopes to have former Eagle and starting cornerback Dominique Rodgers- Cromartie on the field. Rodgers-Cromartie is bothered by a list of injuries and said he practiced at full speed Wednesday. The Eagles have seven touchdowns on returns this season and look to make things happen again on special teams and defense. For how poorly the Eagles are on the statistics side, they are starting to aggravate in all three areas. I think the Philly game is going to be another great test for our team, Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara said. They are the defending (NFC East) champions and they have a great team on all three phases of the ball, so its going to be a challenge. Coughlin agreed with Amukamara when he said, Every game is the most important game of the season. This is a divisional game. Obviously, Philadelphia is playing very, very well. It is a game within the division for us, so we are just excited for that opportunity. The Giants lead the NFL with eight interceptions and will try to force Foles into making mistakes. Amukamara, Antrel Rolle and former Eagle Quintin Demps have two interceptions apiece. OVERALL ANALYSIS All good things come to an end, and so will Philadelphias regular season home winning streak. Manning and the Giants are playing great football lately and will go toe-to-toe with Kellys up-tempo offense. Nothing is better than beating your NFC East rival on the road and taking away the division lead in the process. Were just trying to make sure that we come out on top of our division this year, Rolle said. Last year is last year. ... I feel like this year its definitely up and rising. We didnt get a lot of credit in the preseason in our division, but I think now the tables are starting to turn a little bit. Dallas is playing good, Philly is playing good right now. I think were rising and were stepping up to the challenges and were playing some good football right now. A halftime show with local R&B group Boyz II Men wont help the Eagles. Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Authentic China Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
