COLUMBUS, Ohio -- The Columbus Blue Jackets tempered their celebration after a 1-0 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Tuesday night. http://www.flyknitnikesoldes.fr/nike-roshe-one-run-yeezy-boost-350-homme-femme-chaussures-de-course-noir.html . Sure, it was good to win. But at the same time the club lost its top goaltender. Sergei Bobrovsky, winner of the Vezina Trophy last year as the NHLs top goalie, stopped all 18 shots before he left with what coach Todd Richards called a leg injury 4:13 into the third period. He was replaced by Curtis McElhinney, who made the last eight saves to preserve the shutout. "Tomorrow hes going to get an MRI. Well get more information," Richards said. "Obviously it was a leg injury. When he comes off the ice like that, youre a bit unsure. But within the next day or two we should have a better idea." Nick Foligno, who had the highlight-reel goal for the winner in the second period, couldnt discuss his own role in the victory before discussing the netminder his teammates simply call Bob. "You hate to see Bob hurt. Hes been playing great and he made an unbelievable save right before that," Foligno said. "Then you have Curtis come in and do what he does, making sound saves. We have some confidence in our goaltending." Bobrovskys injury came on his most spectacular save of the night. The Lightnings J.T. Brown took a stretch pass and was all alone behind the defence. He tried to lift a wrist shot and Bobrovsky gloved it, falling to the ice with his legs spread while his left leg jammed into the goal post. He had to be helped off the ice. If Bobrovsky is sidelined for very long, it will be a daunting problem for the Blue Jackets. Their top scoring threat, Marian Gaborik, is still a couple of weeks away after spraining a knee, while big off-season free-agent signing Nathan Horton is maybe a month from playing his first games in a Columbus sweater after shoulder surgery. Up until the time Bobrovsky left, the buzz was all about Folignos goal. Ryan Johansen flicked the puck away from Valterri Filppula in the offensive zone, then fed Foligno who was all alone swooping in on goalie Ben Bishop. Foligno slid the puck back through his own legs -- backward -- and then backhanded it past Bishop for his seventh goal at the 4:30 mark. The fans oohed and ahead when the replay was flashed on the monitors over centre ice. "(That came from) practicing in your driveway or watching on YouTube," Foligno said with a laugh. "Its just one of those things that in the spur of the moment you think of. Luckily, it went in." After Bobrovsky departed, the Lightning made it interesting. Filppulas shot just slid past the corner of the goal as time expired as the Lightning were shut out for the second game in a row and third time in five outings. They have lost their last five road games. "You wont win in this league unless you get some goals," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "Our commitment to go to those areas where we need to to score is not there. Its unfortunate. Its just not happening now. Were learning by watching teams pass us in the standings." The game was played before the smallest crowd of the year at Nationwide Arena -- 10,223. The Blue Jackets were content to just chip and chase the puck down the stretch, but the Lightning still had chances. Nate Thompson unleashed a hard wrist shot while moving in from the right wing with 6 1/2 minutes left but McElhinney made the stop. The crowd booed with 4:46 left when Jack Johnson was called for tripping. Video replays clearly showed that Ondrej Palat fell down without anyone coming close to him. Still, the Blue Jackets killed that penalty. With just over a minute left, Martin St. Louis went high with a backhand shot that McElhinney smothered. Then came Filppulas close call at the end. "We have a big power play at the end and we dont even get a setup," St. Louis said. "Its embarrassing. If youre not (ticked off) and frustrated, somethings wrong with you right now." The Blue Jackets came out timid but turned things around. "Tonight was a good step," Richards said. "I think theres things we can build off." NOTES: The Lightning have gone 4-5-1 since major scoring threat Steven Stamkos broke his leg on Nov. 11 at Boston. ... Bishop came in with a 14-4-1 record, just a 2.08 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage. He had stopped 110 of his last 113 shots before Folignos goal. ... The Blue Jackets have not won back-to-back games since Oct. 25 when they beat Toronto 5-2 to extend a home winning streak to three in a row. Since then they are 6-9-3. ... Brandon Dubinsky returned to the Columbus lineup after missing six games with a bone bruise on his left ankle. Air Max Pas Cher .J. -- The New York Giants placed starting centre David Baas on injured reserve Wednesday after he sustained his third injury this season. http://www.flyknitnikesoldes.fr/nike-air-presto-br-all-cramoisi-789870-006-homme-femme-chaussures.html . Nyquist had two goals and Jimmy Howard made 31 saves to help the Red Wings hold on to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-2 on Tuesday night.LISBON, Portugal -- Fernando Santos is taking over as Portugal coach, despite his eight-game international ban for misconduct at the World Cup. The former Greece coach replaces Paulo Bento, who quit two weeks ago after a run of poor results, the Portuguese Football Federation said in a brief statement on its website on Tuesday. The 59-year-old Portuguese will be presented at a news conference on Wednesday, the statement said, but gave no further information. FIFA banned Santos in August for verbally abusing match officials in Brazil while coaching Greece. Santos is appealing that ban, with a ruling expected this week. Santos, who was due to leave the Greece job after the tournament, was banished from the dugout after extra time of a second-round match against Costa Rica, which finished 1-1. His team then lost the penalty shootout. Santos needs to rally a Portugal team that diisappointed at the World Cup, where it went home after the first round, and then lost 1-0 to Albania this month in its opening European Championship qualifier. http://www.flyknitnikesoldes.fr/nike-roshe-one-n7-noir-clair-bleu-rouge-homme-femme-suede-chaussures-746654-004.html. Portugals next match in its campaign is against Denmark on Oct. 14. Santos has built a reputation for rescuing troubled teams. He took over a Greece that was in the doldrums after the 2012 World Cup, and racked up an unbeaten run in his first 15 months on the job. He picked talented youngsters and introduced a more attacking style, often deploying three strikers. That is the kind of makeover Portugal needs, with fans demanding more playing time for a younger crop of players, more goals, and less dependence on star Cristiano Ronaldo, who sat out the Albania match. Before joining Greece in 2010, Santos coached Portuguese clubs Porto and Benfica, and AEK Athens, Panathinakos, and PAOK in Greece.
