Oshie, Ovi, and Grubauer Help Caps Overcome Canes

first_imgT.J. Oshie scored the game tying goal on a deflection and then he and Evgeny Kuznetsov scored in the shootout to give Philipp Gruabuer a much deserved 4-3 victory over a speedy, pesky, and well coached Carolina Hurricanes club in Raleigh.The beer will taste good for the Caps and their fans after this one.Washington played FAR from their “A” game and they received no help from the referees in a come from behind win. As stellar Comcast analyst and former Capitals #16, Alan May, stated afterwards, sometimes the guys in stripes do too much homework before the game on who has how many penalty minutes on the season and they end up calling the game in a biased fashion. That certainly appeared to be the case on Friday night.But that’s what makes this triumph for Washington more special. They played a lousy first period, mostly because they hadn’t skated in two days and because they had zero intensity, and trailed 1-0. It could’ve been worse, if not for Grubauer (27 saves), who kept them in it. They were getting pushed around a little physically in the first 20 minutes and somewhere after they killed an early second period penalty, they started playing with snarl and anger. As Justin Williams stated after that middle frame, the Caps played with more intensity.One guy who had intensity from the opening puck drop was the captain, Alex Ovechkin. The Gr8 was doing what he does best, shoot the puck often and he was really moving his legs. On the second of the Caps only two power plays in the contest in period two, Ovi made a great back check that allowed John Carlson to set up Nicklas Backstrom (1 assist) the other way on an odd man rush. With Ovechkin trailing the play with speed and #19 with the puck, Cam Ward was in big trouble, and the best goal scorer on the planet made no mistake about it, burying the biscuit to even this contest up after a sweet back pass from Nicky.Shortly after that, the zebras went penalty happy against the Caps again and suddenly Coach Barry Trotz’ crew found themselves down two men for 38 seconds. However, Jay Beagle, Brooks Orpik, and Karl Alzner plus Grubauer did an outstanding job killing that situation off. You know what they say, what happens on a two man advantage usually decides the outcome, and once the Capitals got back to even strength they took the lead. Matt Niskanen (two assists) pinched down on an offensive zone faceoff and he kept the puck in deep and fed it to Kuznetsov behind the net. With Ovechkin streaking down the slot and drawing the attention of the Carolina defenders, #92 found Justin Williams alone by Ward’s right side of the cage and #14 buried it for his seventh goal of the season. Mr. Crazy Hair, who worked his rear off all game, like most nights, has a hot hand right now.The Caps would continue to play well in the middle stanza, but they unfortunately made a couple of mistakes in the offensive and defensive zone on one instance and that allowed Justin Faulk to get a one on one chance with Grubauer and the American defenseman made no mistake about scoring.Heading to the third period it was anyone’s game and Carolina received another early power play and scored just eight seconds into it on a deflection that #31 never saw. The Canes kept pressing and they received an additional gift power play when a complete garbage penalty was called on Ovechkin for tripping in the neutral zone. That one was completely laughable.But credit the Caps, they killed off the sixth man advantage of the night for the home club and then the last nine plus minutes they were relentless in an attempt to tie up the game and then try for the victory.Their hard work and determination paid off when #77 tipped home the point shot of Dmitry Orlov with 6:04 remaining. As they’ve done a lot of recently, the Capitals scored because they had guys going to the net and they got the puck in that direction at the right time. That’s how you score on good goalies like Ward and Jaroslav Halak, you make them have a hard time seeing the puck because usually if they see it, they will stop it.In the overtime, the Caps had some good chances and the Canes had five shots on net, but Grubauer, who kept Washington in this one until they found their legs, was not to be dented again. He stopped the first shooter in the gimmick and the second hit the pipe while Oshie and Kuznetsov used moves that May termed “just doesn’t seem fair” to win the game.Again, this was not a pretty or dominating win.However, it was a big one because the Capitals had to dig deep to find intensity and some anger and channel it the right way. They weren’t happy with some of the stuff Carolina was pulling and the whole team and bench were pretty ticked off at Tom Kowal and Evgeny Romasko, the clowns on ice for the night, yet they put all of that energy into their game and grinded out a win. It was a victory that required grit and mental toughness and the Caps certainly displayed that in this win in the Tar Heel State against a club that gives them fits.Washington has now won six in a row and are 19-7-3 (41 points) for the season. They’ll take on the Canadiens at the Verizon Center on Saturday night at 7 pm in a game that will be featured on Hockey Night in Canada in the Great White North. You can bet that Rush guitarist and die hard Montreal fan, Alex Lifeson, will be watching. The Habs were defeated, 4-2, by the San Jose Sharks on Friday night and all world goalie Carey Price was pulled just 26:44 into the game after yielding four tallies on 18 shots. So will he get the cage for Montreal on Saturday against Braden Holtby or will Al Montoya, who owned the Caps with Florida last season, get the net? That’s TBD.But Washington will deal with that later on Saturday night.For the rest of Friday night and into early Saturday, I’ll steal from the late, great Chuck Thompson, “Ain’t the Beer Cold!”Notes: Shots on goal were 30-26 for Carolina, but it was 24-23 Washington, at even strength…the Caps were beaten 33-25 from the dot…the Capitals had 24 hits to just 18 for the Canes. Washington, as May also stated, is at their best when they use their size to their advantage and hit…Ovechkin logged 19:41 and had six shots on goal in 13 total shot attempts…Oshie had four shots on goal in 20:21 of ice time, he was fabulous once again; sign the man long term!last_img read more


Technology: Tips For Buying Enterprise Software

first_imgThe downturn in the economy has hit a lot of budgets. If you’re looking to purchase Enterprise Software, what should you keep in mind when you are considering the budget? Barry Wilderman came up with six tips on his blog for considerations when purchasing ERP. But the tips really apply when purchasing any traditionally-licensed Enterprise Software.Software License Fees. Cost is often based on server configuration and number of “named users” — specific names assigned to individuals who will access the software. Often fees fluctuate based on the role of the user, for example, administrator or regular user, and by the set of features that a user will have access to, such as collaboration, content consumer, or content author.Implementation Fees. Vary quite a bit. Typically fees can be one to four times the cost of the software alone, depending on the level ofcomplexity of configuration and of customization.Maintenance and Support Fees. Typically around 20 percent of the cost of the original software.Upgrades. Find out how often regular updates occur and whether or not they are included as part of the Maintenance fees.New Modules. If the product adds significant new functionality or modules, are they included in your maintenance, or will the module come at additional cost.Post go-live sales, service and care. Find out and understand what you can expect from your vendor.last_img read more


3 signs your landing page copy is leaving your visitors high and dry

first_imgThere are few things more important for conversion rate optimization than your landing page copy. If your landing pages are struggling to turn visitors into leads, there’s a very good chance it’s because of your copy. More often than not, marketers are guilty of making several copywriting mistakes, and they don’t even know it.In this post, I’ll show you three copywriting mistakes you are probably making on your landing pages — and how to correct them.1. Your copy focuses on features, not benefitsFeatures tell your audience what your product is about.Benefits tell them what your product can do for them.Although features are important — they educate customers about your product’s specifications — they are purely informational. They don’t really persuade users or tell them how their lives will change by buying your product.To understand why this works, you need to understand how your customers make purchase decisions. While we’d like to assume that we make rational decisions after careful analysis, the truth is that for most of us, purchase decisions are driven by emotion, not logic. Humans make decisions emotionally, then look for logical reasons to back these decisions up.For example, a customer might decide to buy an iPhone because its design appeals to him emotionally. But to justify his decision, the customer might look at the iPhone’s features — the battery life, camera quality, processor speed and so on.This is why, rather than telling your customer what they can have, tell them why they need it and how it can help make their world better.[Read the full article on Search Engine Land.]From our sponsors: 3 signs your landing page copy is leaving your visitors high and dry 3 signs your landing page copy is leaving your visitors high and dryYou are here: Posted on 23rd July 2016Digital Marketing FacebookshareTwittertweetGoogle+share HomeDigital Marketing3 signs your landing page copy is leaving your visitors high and dry Related postsLytics now integrates with Google Marketing Platform to enable customer data-informed campaigns14th December 2019The California Consumer Privacy Act goes live in a few short weeks — Are you ready?14th December 2019ML 2019121313th December 2019Global email benchmark report finds email isn’t dead – it’s essential13th December 2019Keep your LinkedIn advertising strategy focused in 202012th December 20192019 benchmark report: brand vs. non-brand traffic in Google Shopping12th December 2019last_img read more

first_imgThere is no specific medication to treat Zika and there are currently no vaccines to prevent the illness. However, symptoms of Zika can be managed by: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Since 2007, 65 countries have reported cases of Zika. Of the 65 countries, approximately 22 countries are located in the Caribbean region. As of Friday, July 22, 2016, the Turks and Caicos Islands has recorded 5 cases of Zika Virus. Three (3) of these cases are associated with a recent history of travel to areas where cases of Zika has been reported. The other 2 are being investigated. To date, there is no epidemiological evidence of in country transmission associated with the two non-travel related cases. Measures have been taken to ensure that these cases are managed and contained, and all affected persons are recovering. To protect yourself and your family, the Ministry advises persons in the TCI to take the following precautions: Zika is a viral illness, which is spread by the bite of an infected Aedes aegypti mosquito. This mosquito is found throughout the Americas, including the TCI. Most persons who contract Zika are often not aware that they have the illness as they may not have any symptoms. Symptoms of Zika are similar to Dengue and Chikungunya and appear between four to seven days after someone has been bitten by an infected mosquito. These symptoms include mild fever, skin rash, conjunctivitis (also known as pink eye), muscle or joint pain, and general malaise. The concern with Zika is a growing body of evidence regarding the connection between infection with Zika during pregnancy and possible abnormalities in the newborn. In addition, there has been an association with Zika and other neurological complications such as Guillain-Barre syndrome.
