Denny Morrisons silver medal performance in the mens 1,000 metre speed skating medal nearly didnt happen. Nike Air Huarache Triple Black For Sale . After falling during the Canadian Olympic team trails, Morrison missed earning a place in the event. But on Tuesday, fellow Canadian Gilmore Junio gave up his spot in the race, saying that to have Morrison compete would be "in the best interest of the team." "When he rang me, I thought he was pulling my leg," said Morrison, of Junios decision. "Why would he do it unless he was injured? The coaches knew but decided he was the one to tell me. "We were at Canada Olympic House with our families and when it came from the horses mouth, it was a moment I will never forget." As Morrison stepped onto the podium following the race, Junios decision must have seemed clairvoyant. Morrison skated against 500m champion, Michel Mulder of the Netherlands, and finished in a time of one minute 08.43 seconds. The Canadian slotted into second place, with six of the top skaters remaining. One by one, each of the remaining athletes failed to earn a podium spot. "I called it, so it feels good to be a prophet," Junio told CBC Sports. "A lot of kudos goes to this guy [Morrison] because he made it happen." I feel like getting my medal and cutting it in half because he deserves it Morrison credits Junios help — not just in giving up the spot — but for his hard work as a training partner. "Hes been helping me with my openers for the last four years," said Morrison of Junio. "I opened 16.6 today. Its my fastest opener in six years time, and I never would have gotten this medal without having those openers, and guys like Gilmore and Jamie Gregg, and of course giving his spot up for me. "After what [Junio] did, it made it even more special. Giving up your spot is unprecedented. I feel like getting my medal and cutting it in half because he deserves it." Junio was watching from the stands as his friend and teammate took to the ice to race. Junio yelled even louder as subsequent athletes failed to beat Morrisons time. "I was literally shaking and couldnt stay focused," said Junio "I was definitely breathing hard, and I kind of lost my voice because I was cheering so hard. It was definitely worth it."

Subban may want to don goalie pads the next time he takes to the ice. Subban made two dramatic goal-line saves in Montreals 3-2 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday night, helping the Canadiens extend their seven-game point streak. "To be honest with you, I dont think Ill be taking (Carey) Prices job anytime soon," said Subban. "Hes got that pretty locked down. The amount of times that hes bailed me out, I dont mind stepping in there." With the score still tied 0-0 early in the game, Subban got his outstretched stick on a Jaromir Jagr shot from inside the crease, denying the star forward of a sure goal. Subban later shut the door on Devils (11-12-5) forward Damien Brunner, crashing into the net and blocking the shot to keep the Canadiens (16-9-3) in front 2-1 at the start of the third. "I just happened to be in the position today where the puck was there, and cleared it out," said Subban. "Just trying to do my job. In addition to the two saves, Subban ended the night with his team-leading 20th assist and five blocked shots in 23:34 of work. And despite calling Subban out on his defensive liabilities last month, head coach Michel Therrien had only positive things to say about his flamboyant defenceman. "As far as Im concerned, hes playing his best hockey. His focus is at the right place," said Therrien. "Hes doing a fabulous job for the team. Were putting him out there against top players game in and game out. And he loves that challenge. And its not a coincidence that were having success, that we pick up wins. "Hes certainly one of the best defencemen right now." At the other end of the ice, Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur could have used similar help. Brodeur, whos usually successful at the Bell Centre with 19 wins in 30 career starts, allowed three goals on only 17 shots. The Montreal native thought it was tough to get into the game when he wasnt being kept busy. "Usually when I dont have any shots, what helps me is that Im used to playing the puck," said Brodeur. "When I get no shots, Im able to stay in the game. But when I get no shots, and I cant play the puck, the games are long. "Its tough to get going. Not before the third period that I felt good, and I started making some saves." Brodeur also ccredited Subban for handing his Devils their first regulation loss at Montreal since 2008. White Adidas Trainers Womens. "We missed a couple of open-netters that their defenceman made some great plays on," said Brodeur. "At the end I think that made the difference." After Subban made his first save of the game, Steve Bernier opened the scoring at 11:13 of the first period after sustained pressure by New Jersey. Bernier was left all alone in front of the net and beat Price on his blocker side by deflecting an Anton Volchenkov shot from the point. The Canadiens levelled the score at 8:49 of the second when Rene Bourque took a no-look, behind-the-back pass from David Desharnais and scored his sixth of the year, short side. With Dainius Zubrus in the box for interference, Max Pacioretty broke the deadlock on the power play at 16:49, taking a cross-ice pass from Andrei Markov and firing home from the face-off circle to Brodeurs left. "I started out slowly," said Pacioretty, who didnt register a shot in the first period. "Everything was bouncing away from me in the first. I got a couple there in the second, and let loose. It took me half the game to get into it." Shortly after Subbans second save, former Canadiens forward Michael Ryder made it 2-2 early in the third period when he rifled a slapshot in to the top corner of the net with Douglas Murray trying to get in his way. "I just tried to make sure to get it on net," said Ryder. "I saw the defender was trying to block it. I tried to get it upstairs, and I managed to find a way in." Alex Galchenyuk scored the winner for the Canadiens at 9:34, netting his seventh of the season into a gaping net after an Alexei Emelin shot fortuitously landed on his stick. Price made 28 saves for his 12th win of the year, and now has a 2.39 goals-against average in 18 career games against New Jersey. The game was the first of a home-and-home series between the Canadiens and Devils. The teams face off again on Wednesday in New Jersey.
