The Winnipeg Goldeyes got a jolt of momentum and some important separation on Thursday afternoon. Playing in front of a crowd of 5,788 at Shaw Park, the Fish beat the St. Paul Saints 7-2 to win the final game of a five-game series and pull 4 1/2 games ahead of the Saints in the race for first in the American Associations North Division. Casey Haerther was the hitting hero as the leading hitter in the league raised his average to .396 with three hits in five trips and also drove in a pair of runs as the Goldeyes improved to 37-22 on the season. Luis Alen had a hit in three trips, scored a run and drove in a run; Reggie Abercrombie went three-for-four with two runs scored; and Donnie Webb had two hits, including a solo homer as the Goldeyes put an end to a three-game losing streak. However, while the bats came alive, the real hero might have been starter Ethan Hollingsworth. Hollingsworth battled for 6 2/3 innings, allowing only one run on eight scattered hits as the Saints had at least one base runner in every inning and had runners in scoring position in seven of the nine innings. "That was a big win for us because it gives us some momentum heading out onto the road," said Haerther, whose two-run double in the eighth put the game out of reach. "This is a team that wont go very long without scoring runs and we knew wed start getting good at bats again. This win was good for us, good for everybody in the clubhouse, because even though it was a tough homestand, we won the last game and we all feel good about ourselves going into Kansas City." It was a wild one in many ways for the Goldeyes. In the first inning, third baseman Jake Blackwood drilled a double and pulled up lame at second base. He had to be taken out of the game so it meant moving Josh Mazzola to third, Luis Alen to first and Jordan Guida to catcher. But then, in the next inning, newcomer Sam Kimmel pulled up lame in the outfield and the moves were on again. With the Goldeyes down to nothing on the bench but pitchers, reliever Kaohi Downing moved to rightfield and Donnie Webb moved to leftfield. But when the game got tight, manager Rick Forney moved Guida to first base and Alen back behind the plate. For the ninth inning, Forney took Guida out of the game and put Haerther, the DH at first. Its more managing than anyone should have to do in one afternoon. "Ive often pitched to two different catchers in a game," said Hollingsworth. "But I think its the first time Ive pitched to one, then to another and then to the first guy again. But it was easy. Jordan and Luis both call great games so it was no problem for me at all." It took a while for the Goldeyes to get on the board, but when they did, they did it with gusto. In the fifth, trailing 1-0, Abercrombie led off with a double and eventually came home on a single by Alen. Guida, who was safe on an error, scored on a ground out by Haerther and the Fish had a 2-1 lead. Webb homered in the sixth to make it 3-1 and then the Goldeyes scored again when Brock Bond came home on an error by St. Paul shortstop Joey Becker. St. Paul cut the Goldeyes lead to 4-2 in the top of the eighth, but ion the bottom of the inning, Alen drove in a run with a single and Haerther drove in two with a double and the Goldeyes had bounced back from losing a doubleheader on Wednesday night. Hollingsworth (4-0, 3.96 ERA) got the win while St. Paul starter Robert Coe (4-5, 6.36 ERA) took the loss. There was no save The Goldeyes left immediately after the game for Kansas City where they will play a three-game weekend series. Winnipeg will return home on Monday to open a three-game series with the Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks. Frank Ragnow Lions Jersey . Neither made it that far in 2013. Not even close.

Each day, TSN.ca provides the latest rumours, reports and speculation from around the NHL beat. Keeping The Captain? Brian Giontas agent Steve Bartlett told La Presse on Tuesday that the Montreal Canadiens want to keep their captain - an unrestricted free agent on July 1 - in the fold, while sources tell the paper that the two sides will start talks this week. Christian Jones Jersey .com) - Rick Nash scored twice and Derek Stepan chipped in a goal with one assist as the New York Rangers claimed a 5-2 decision over Calgary at the Saddledome.MONTREAL -- While growing up, Cam Talbot was a fan of Montreal Canadiens goaltending great Patrick Roy. And in his first game at the Bell Centre, the 26-year-old played a lot like Roy as he made 22 saves to earn in his NHL shutout in the New York Rangers 1-0 victory over the Canadiens on Saturday night. "I always idolized Patrick Roy so to do it in a building like this and on a stage like this, and to see his number up in the rafters, was an unbelievable feeling," the Caledonia, Ont., native said. Captain Ryan Callahan ended the Rangers four-year goal drought in Montreal when he got his sixth of the season on a second period power play for New York (10-9-0), which has won eight of its last 11 games. It wasnt the only mark of futility that ended for the Rangers on their visit to their old Original Six rival. Talbot, playing his fifth NHL game, became the first Rangers goalie to earn a shutout in Montreal since Ed Giacomin in a 5-0 win on Feb. 25, 1967 at the old Forum. "It means quite a bit to me," said Talbot, now 4-1-0 as an NHL goalie. "He and Mike Richter are two of the greatest Ranger goalies of all time, so to hear my name mentioned alongside his is pretty surreal, to be honest." The Canadiens (10-9-2) were coming off a 3-2 shootout win in Columbus on Friday night and spent most of the game a step behind the Rangers, who played the first of back-to-back games before playing Los Angeles at home on Sunday. The Rangers had a 34-22 edge in shots, and may have won by more had Carey Price not been outstanding in the Montreal net. "Its a game of inches," said Montreal coach Michel Therrien, whose team has scored only 18 times in its last 11 games "They capitalized on the power play and we had chances on ours and didnt capitalize. "We worked, and if we keep working like that good things are going to happen." Callahan broke the Rangers Bell Centre jinx just as a two-man advantage ended as he tipped Brad Richards blast from the left circle past Price 5:25 into the second period. The Canadiens went into the game with four straight shutouts against New York, including a 2-0 win Oct. 28 with Peter Budaj in goal. Price had blanked the Rangers the last four times he faceed them at the Bell Centre and lost at home to them for the first time in eight meetings.dddddddddddd Montreal was 7-0-1 at home against New York and had outscored them 25-3 since a 4-3 loss in March, 2009. "We were well aware of it," said Calahan. "We came in and had a good road game. "We got a good start and carried it through, and Talbot was unbelievable." Richards laughed when asked about the Rangers record of futility in Montreal. "I have nothing but great memories here since I was 17 and playing in the Quebec junior league all-star games," the former Rimouski Oceanic star said. "I always loved coming back here to play, so I didnt really get it and I dont think our new coach (Alain Vigneault) got it either, being from Quebec and knowing the history and how fun it is to play here. "He made a joke before the game that theres no ghosts here. Its a great place to play and lets have some fun. I think you guys and people in New York talk about it a lot, but as places to come and play, this is by far the best building." The only drawback was that Talbot didnt get the puck at the end of the game, as a Canadiens player flipped it into the crowd. Talbot said a teammate picked one up for him at the scorers bench. The Rangers dressed Talbot largely because Henrik Lundqvist, who will play against Los Angeles, often struggles in Montreal. The good news for Montreal was that physical defenceman Alexei Emelin, who blew out a knee in April, made his season debut and played a solid 16 minutes paired with veteran Francis Bouillon. His knee survived an early hit on Chris Kreider that was very much like the play he was injured on. "It was exactly the same type of hit," said Therrien. "For his confidence, that was probably the best thing that could happen. I really liked his first game." Notes -- Emelin bumped Douglas Murray from the lineup. Brendan Gallagher, who sat out Friday with a flu, was back but was used sparingly. Ryan White and George Parros were scratched. . . The Rangers expect to have star forward Rick Nash back from a concussion either Tuesday against Boston or Thursday at Dallas. Michael Del Zotto and Brandon Mashinter didnt dress.
