Team North America Loses close came to Russia.

 

Team North America was defeated by Team Russia last night by a score of 4-3.

The first period was great for North America, they looked like they were going to pick off were they left off from Sunday’s game epically when Austin Mathew scored 5 minutes into the game just like on Sunday, he was assisted by McDavid and Scheifele.

That was it for the first period. Then the Second period was all Russia, for some reason Russia gained momentum after a couple of really bad power play opportunities they took over the period scoring four unanswered goals. Here are the goal scorers for Russia in order: Valsalva Nesting, Nikita Kushiro, Evgeni Kuznetsova, Vladimir Tarasenko.

Then after the four goals North America seemed to get their wits back a little bit and Morgan Reilly scored assisted by Garneau, the team’s second goal with three minutes left in the second.

Then in the Third period it was all North America. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scored a power play goal assisted by MacKinnon, and Parayko 3 minutes into the period. The team would not score again but kept up the pressure with I have no idea how many chance because there were so many to count, then North America pulled the goalie with around 2 minutes to play in the game and had offensive possession that entire time and at one point the puck found Shayne Gostosbehere at the blue line and fired a rocket on goal and it beat everybody including Bobrovsky but it was defeated by the post but I am pretty sure it left a dent in that post because the puck rebounded about 6 feet after hitting the post.

Yeah Team North America lost but these kids showed that they do have some grit and do not need those veteran guys to help them make a comeback they just made some adjustments and found their game again which is speed and skill, and North America started getting a lot more physical after Russia’s third goal. Team North America had 46 shots on goal.

With the Celtic’s he only averaged 1.5 points per game. The Celtics now have Mickey gone, so they can focus on what needs to be done this season.

Mayweather VS McGregor-Brawler or Boxer?

 

Almost two weeks from now the fight everyone is waiting for will be decided. Taking a closer look at Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor, we can almost decide now for ourselves.  But let’s humor ourselves and look at the tale of the tape and you can comment below on who you predict to win.

Defense– Advantage Mayweather.

When he retired in 2015, Mayweather owned a boxing-best plus -24.5 plus/minus rating per CompuBox. He landed 43.4 percent of his punches. His opponents landed only 18.9 percentage to Fight Metric, McGregor has defended only 57 percent of strikes during his UFC career, worst of any current male champ

Endurance- Advantage Mayweather

In 49 fights, Mayweather has only 26 knockouts. He has made it look easy-going through 12 rounds in his last 7 fights. Every bout but one has been set for the championship distance.

Mcgregor has finished half his bouts inside the opening round. He has only fought past the third round once.

Durability- Even

Mayweather has only been knocked down once. McGregor, well, he has a beard don’t he?

Speed- Mayweather

Mayweather has always been known for his quickness of hands and feet. Even at age 40 in his final fight; his speed and reflexes were on spot.

McGregor isn’t so quick. His speed his by deception. He is fast because he knows his opponents next move and gets in their head.

Power– McGregor

Yes McGregor. The KO power of his left hand has made him millions with 85 percent of his wins coming from knockouts.

Mayweather’s KO rating is only a 53 percent. Power his not his game and his last knockout came in 2011.

Experience- Mayweather

He has seen it all. Bronze medal in 1996 Olympics. He has faced almost every big name of  his time and done so in the most crucible of the sport’s biggest stage.

McGregor has roots in Ireland’s Crumlin Boxing Club. He has always felt comfortable in the pocket, but now, he is fighting under different rules.

Does Conor McGregor have what it takes to go the distance against one of the best boxer’s ever? Can Floyd Mayweather survive the McGregor’s powerful left hand and avoid an early knockout.  If the bout goes past the few rounds, I would put my money on Mayweather for sure, but then again, have you ever seen an Irishman fight? It is going to be one heck of a fight that I think both fighters are going to know once and for all what they are really made of.
