DETROIT -- The Tampa Bay Lightning are coming off a big win while the Detroit Red Wings will be trying to rebound from their biggest and most embarrassing loss of the season. Buffalo Sabres Jerseys .The Lightning (9-6-1) visit the Red Wings (8-7-1) at Joe Louis Arena in a 7:30 p.m. game on Tuesday.Tampa Bay shut out the New York Islanders 4-0 in Brooklyn on Monday night. Detroit, however, suffered a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of the Canadiens in Montreal on Saturday night.Goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy made 34 saves, including 20 in the third period, for the Lightning.We sat back probably a little too much in the third and put (Vasilevskiy) in a tough position to make some big saves and earn that shutout, Tampa Bay captain Steve Stamkos said. But the first two periods were pretty good.Stamkos had two assists, Nikita Kucherov a goal and an assist and J.T. Brown, Ryan Callahan and Vladislav Namestnikov also scored for the Lightning.Despite his heavy work load in the third period, Vasilevskiy appreciated the way his team played in front of him.They did a good job on the (penalty kill). We blocked shots and made good plays, he said. I just want to say thank you to our guys and thank you for the shutout.Meanwhile, Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill told www.mlive.com that his team got slapped in the face in the 5-0 loss at Montreal Saturday.The game exposed Detroits inability to win puck battles. So, one-on-one drills were the focus of Mondays practice at Joe Louis Arena.Every guy in this room can be a little better and it starts with one-on-one battles, center Luke Glendening said. Youve got to be better than the guy across from you.Its in the offensive zone, its in the defensive zone, its at our net, at their net, face-offs.The Red Wings will obviously have to be better to be competitive against the Lightning, who have eliminated Detroit in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs the past two seasons.We talked about identity and being relentless and being fast and being competitive, Blashill said. You cant win in this league if youre not highly competitive and I thought in Montreal we got out-competed.Winning more puck battles will lead to improvement in the Red Wings breakouts and forechecking, which have both been lacking at times this season.All of us take our jobs very seriously and are very professional about it, Justin Abdelkader said. Today was a good day for us to come back and get to work and focus on some of the things that we need to get better at. It is a long season, but at the same time you dont want to be as streaky as weve been. We want to try to be a little more consistent.Ben Bishop will likely get the start in goal for Tampa Bay and, after Jimmy Howard started four consecutive games, look for Petr Mrazek to be the starter for Detroit. Evander Kane Jersey .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration. Plouffe batted .254 with 14 home runs and 52 RBIs in 477 at-bats last season, his second as a regular in the lineup.

Pedro scored from a pass by Lionel Messi in the 33rd minute and added two more goals in the 47th and 72nd after Valdes saved his second penalty in four days following his stop in Wednesdays 4-0 over Ajax in the Champions League. CHAPECO, Brazil -- Thousands squeezed into Chapecos cathedral and even more packed a stadium to mourn the death of 71 people in a plane crash, 19 of them members of the Chapecoense club who had been on the brink of soccer greatness.To lose (almost) all of them in such a tragic way, totally destroyed our city and each one of us, Carla Vilembrini said late Tuesday, standing outside Santo Antonio Cathedral. She was dressed like so many others -- in the clubs green and white jerseys.Chapecoenses fantasy season ended on a muddy Colombian mountainside late Monday when a chartered aircraft crashed south of Medellin. Only six of the 77 passengers and crew survived, three of them players.The club was having the best season in its 43-year history, heading to the first of two matches in the final of the Copa Sudamericana, the continents No. 2 club tournament.Distraught residents of this southern Brazilian city of 200,000 people, an agribusiness center near the Argentina border, wandered the streets around the stadium -- known as Arena Conda -- in stunned silence.The city is very quiet, businessman Cecilio Hans said. People will only believe once the bodies start to arrive.On social media, haunting last photos showed the smiling players boarding the flight to Colombia for their match with Atletico Nacional.In one photo, the team celebrated a last-minute save by goalkeeper Danilo only a week ago against the Argentine club San Lorenzo. The save guaranteed Chapecoense a spot in the final -- and ultimately cost Danilo his life in the crash.I cant still believe it, Alan Heinz said inside the stadium, his body pressed against the fence that separates fans from the field. This time the field was filled by a religious service and prayers for the dead.I was preparing for the best day of my life, and now I dont know what my life will be after this, he said.As recently as 2009, the club known as Chape was playing in Brazils fourth division, but it won promotion to the top league in 2014 for the first time since the 1970s.Victories over San Lorenzo and Independente -- two of Argentinas fiercest squads -- as well as the Colombian club Junior took the team to the Copa Sudamericana finals, the equivalent of the UEFA Europa League tournament.Few of the players had an international profile, and none had any appearances with Brazils glitzy national team. Most had played all over Brazil and Latin America. Only a few had ever reached Europe, like Cleber Santana, who played for Atletico Madrid in 2007-10.Chape strikers Bruno Rangel and Kempes, both 34, were among the top scorers in the Brazilian league, with 10 and nine goals, respectively.The onlly players to survive were goalkeeper Jakson Follmann, defender Helio Zampier, commonly known as Neto, and defender-midfielder Alan Ruschel. Zach Bogosian Jersey. Coach Caio Junior is credited with Chapes quick rise, joining the club this year after guiding teams in the Middle East. Born Luiz Carlos Saroli, he coached numerous Brazilian teams, including Palmeiras, Flamengo and Botafogo.He was among the dead. His son, Matheus Saroli, escaped because he didnt make the flight, saying in a Facebook post that he couldnt board because I forgot my passport.An Argentine player on the club, Alejandro Martinuccio, also missed the flight, because of an injury during a game, he told Argentinas La Red radio.I feel deep sadness. The only thing I can ask is prayers for the companions who were on the flight, he said.Also among the dead were 20 sports journalists, including Mario Sergio Pontes de Paiva, a former player who worked as a commentator for Fox Sports. He played briefly for Brazils national team in the early 1980s and had a long career as a midfielder and coach with many Brazilian clubs. He last coached Brazilian club Internacional in 2009 and Ceara in 2010.This is a very, very sad day for football, FIFA President Gianni Infantino said in a statement. At this difficult time our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.Brazilian President Michel Temer declared three days of official mourning, while soccer great Pele called it a tragic loss. Brazilian champion Palmeiras asked the countrys football confederation for permission to wear Chapecoenses jersey in its last match of the season.Around the world, the sport paused to remember the victims.Barcelona and Real Madrid held a minute of silence before their practice sessions during the day, and Frances top two leagues observed be a minutes silence at Tuesday nights games.Medellin-based Atletico Nacional said it was asking the South American soccer confederation to give the Copa Sudamericana title to Chape as a tribute to the players who died.Some of Brazils top clubs said they wanted to lend players to Chape for the 2017 season. They also said the team should not be relegated to the second division as it recovers from the disaster.The dream is not over. We will fight back when its time, said Chapes acting club president, Gelson Della Costa.Now its time to take care of the families, he said.---Associated Press sports writer Mauricio Savarese reported this story in Chapeco, Brazil, and AP sports writer Stephen Wade reported from Rio de Janeiro.
