, a confidence and an energy to him

ST. JOHNS, N.L. -- Adam Lowry says he feels most comfortable when hes in front of the net. He proved that Saturday by scoring two goals in the first period and adding an assist in the third before J.C. Lipon had the shootout winner to lift St. Johns over the Toronto Marlies 5-4. "Thats where I feel most at home on the power play, in front of the net," Lowry said. "Making it hard on goalies to see the puck and battling down low. I just try to use my size to my advantage." But despite Lowrys three-point night, the IceCaps forward wouldnt take much credit for his teams win. "I cant really take a lot of credit, it was a really nice pass from Jerome (Samson) on the first one," Lowry said. "Will (ONeill) got a shot through on the second one. Im just trying to get in front of the goalie and impede his vision on the power play and such. "I was fortunate to get a few lucky breaks." Both teams played a physical game, with five fights and several big hits highlighting the contest. IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge says he was happy with how his team responded to the physicality. "We had good energy," McCambridge said. "We go down one goal and then we responded quickly with three. We were physical, it was one of our most physical games of the season." Carl Klingberg and Patrice Cormier also scored for the IceCaps (18-15-3). Peter Holland scored two for the Marlies (20-11-3), while Wade MacLeod and T.J. Brennan added one each. The Marlies opened the scoring 23 seconds into the game as MacLeod finished off a rebound chance on the backhand. Lowry levelled the score for the IceCaps with a wrist shot in front of the net on a cross-crease pass 3:54 into the first period. With 2:42 left in the first, Lowry scored his second of the game, tipping home an ONeill point shot in front of the net on the power play. Cormier won position in front and tapped in a goal 44 seconds into the second period off a nice feed from Brenden Kichton. The Marlies shortened the gap to one as Josh Leivo made a nifty backhand pass and found Holland open in the slot at the 3:06 mark of the third period on the power play. Lowry carried the puck to the net at the 9:43 mark of the third and passed across to Klingberg, who scored on the doorstep. Brennan scored a wrist shot high blocker to bring the Marlies within one less than a minute later on the power play. Holland then fooled IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale high, as Pasquale misplayed a puck that seemed to be going over the net at 12:02 in the third to force extra time. Pasquale finished with 35 saves, while Drew MacIntyre stopped 22 for Toronto. Custom Oakland Raiders Jerseys .

It just makes me smile, said Pace, who at 37 is the leagues youngest general manager.Pace comes to Chicago after 14 years with the Saints — 13 in their personnel department.He has a big task rebuilding a team that went 5-11 and fired GM Phil Emery and coach Marc Trestman after one of the most disappointing seasons in recent memory.Pace, a defensive end at Eastern Illinois in the late 1990s, helped build a championship team with the Saints. He also was the interim GM during the Bountygate sanctions.I was in a good situation in New Orleans, he said. I worked with great people there in a good environment. I wasnt one of those guys looking to jump to the next job. This was a very thorough and calculated decision by me and my family. And thats because this is a historic franchise that desperately wants to win and theyre willing to do whatever it takes for that to happen. And I want to be leading that charge.Topping Paces to-do list is hiring a coach.As for Cutler, who signed a seven-year, $126 million deal after the 2013 season, Pace is not ready to draw any conclusions. The contract makes him tough to trade. Cutting Cutler could be an option if the Bears decide not to keep him.I want to get to know Jay, he said. I want to get to know him further before I come to these conclusions.Pace beat out Kansas City Chiefs director of player personnel Chris Ballard, who spent 12 years in Chicago working under Emery and his predecessor Jerry Angelo, along with Tennessee Titans vice-president of player personnel Lake Dawson and Houston Texans director of pro personnel Brian Gaine.Pace will report directly to team president Ted Phillips and will lean heavily on him along with chairman George McCaskey and consultant Ernie Accorsi in the coaching search. But he will have final say on that as well as the makeup of the roster.I want to win, he said. The challenges, the first step, again is hiring the right head coach to hellp me lead that charge.dddddddddddd And thats all Im focused on right now. Thats the most critical thing we can do right now. I think it helps me, again, to have a step-by-step plan in my head — a progressive plan — and right now, thats hiring a head coach, Step 1.Phillips said Pace impressed the Bears during his interview.He just did a great job, from showing intensity, from showing toughness, from really being able to articulate the kind of head coach he wants and how to build the roster, he said.The Bears interviewed Seattle defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn and Denver offensive co-ordinator Adam Gase before Pace was hired. They also interviewed Arizona defensive co-ordinator Todd Bowles on Thursday right after they hired their GM.Pace, who was in on that session, indicated he wont hire a coach based on a certain scheme. He said more interviews have been lined up since he was hired, but would not reveal names. Previous head coaching experience in the NFL is not a requirement.He mentioned how the Saints hiring of Sean Payton in 2006 sparked a jump from 3-13 in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to the NFC South championship. Signing Drew Brees obviously helped, but the new coach was quickly able to get his players to buy in.Sean came from (Bill) Parcells, so discipline was important right off the bat, Pace said. But Sean has a charisma, a confidence and an energy to him thats infectious. I think thats important, you know? When a head coach gets in front of the room, think about it, hes selling his plan to the players. And there needs to be buy-in. Sean Payton has that, and well be looking for some of those qualities.He mentioned re-establishing Chicagos identity as a team that relies on the run and tough defence, areas it veered from under Trestman.Pace also insisted he is fine with the Bears maintaining their chain of command, with the GM reporting to the president rather than the chairman. He said Phillips reminds him of Saints general manager Mickey Loomis and that theres an automatic connection.Its a structure that we like, McCaskey said. Its a structure that we think works. But as Ryan pointed out, more important than the structure are the people that you have in the various positions. We think we have a good one in general manager.Note: McCaskey does not expect Accorsi to remain on the payroll after the coaching search is completed.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
