ST. David Johnson Womens Jersey . PAUL, Minn. -- A bounce went the right way at a key time for Mikael Granlund and the Minnesota Wild.Granlund scored with 44.5 seconds left, Devan Dubnyk stopped 25 shots for his league-leading fourth shutout, and the Wild beat the Boston Bruins 1-0 Thursday night.Granlund took a pass from Jonas Brodin circled below the end line and came out to the right of Tuukka Rask. His centering pass went off Adam McQuaid then off Rask and into the Boston net.Thats why I always pass, joked Granlund, who missed an open net in the second period.Dubnyk has had to carry the Wild lately as Minnesotas offense has mustered just 10 goals in its past seven games, yet won three. He has allowed nine goals in his last nine games, stopping 274 of 283 shots in that span to account for a .965 save percentage. For the season, his goals-against average (1.48) and save percentage (.952) are league bests.Its not my job to score. Its my job to work with the guys and defend. I have zero complaints with how the guys have been defending for me and playing, Dubnyk said. I got no question in here that these guys can put the puck in the net. Sometimes it takes something like that to turn it around.Minnesota has allowed an NHL-low 29 total goals in 16 games this season, including 10 in its last nine games, dating back to a 5-0 shutout Oct. 25 in Boston.Dubnyk kept the game scoreless 6 minutes into the third coming out of the crease and diving to poke the puck away from Matt Beleskey, who was in alone after a turnover by Matt Dumba.Rask stopped 28 shots. He is 4-1-0 in his past five games, with a 0.80 goals-against average and .947 save percentage.His best save came late in the second, getting his glove up quick to stifle Jason Pominville, who was alone in front and had a second to move the puck to his forehand.Hes been unbelievable, carrying us and bailing us out when we made mistakes, David Backes said. We need to find a way to beat the other goaltender.Boston has scored four goals in its last three games.An undisclosed injury has kept Bruins leading-scorer David Pastrnak, who has 10 goals and 14 points in 14 games, out of the past two practices. Coach Claude Julien said the right wing is day to day. Riley Nash played on the top line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.After an evenly played opening period featuring stellar stops on both ends, and Minnesota controlling the first 14 minutes of the second, Boston thought it took a 1-0 lead when a shot from Torrey Krug deflected off the skate of Backes and behind Dubnyk with 5:30 to play in the frame. However, after a lengthy video review it was ruled the Bruins were offside entering the zone.Pardon my language but the (bad) bounces were 1-1 and ours was just an offside and theirs was a goal, Rask said. But after two periods when its 0-0 you feel like its gonna be some kind of breakdown or lucky bounce and thats what happened.Game notes Boston was scoreless on two power plays and is 4 for 60 all-time against the Wild. ... Minnesota assigned C Joel Eriksson Elk to Farjesta BK in the Swedish Elite League. Eriksson Ek has two goals and three assists in nine games and would have had the first year of his three-year entry-level contract kick in if he played a 10th game. ... Bruins D Kevan Miller, who began practicing with the team Tuesday, did not play. He had surgery Oct. 11 to repair a fracture in his left hand.UP NEXTBruins: Host Winnipeg on SaturdayWild: Host Colorado on Saturday to conclude a three-game homestand Carson Palmer Cardinals Jersey . -- The Missouri Tigers might not have a roster full of superstars.

Fernandez, coached in Toronto by former two-time Olympic silver medallist Brian Orser, scored 267.11 points and is the first champion to successfully defend since Russias Evgeny Plushenko in 2005 and 2006. American bantamweight Shakur Stevenson is moving on to the gold-medal final at the Rio Olympics.Stevenson, who dazzled in decision wins in his first two Olympic fights, was supposed to face Vladimir Nikitin of Russia in the semifinals on Thursday. But Nikitin was so battered by Irelands Michael Conlan in his controversial decision win on Tuesday that he withdrew from the tournament.That gave Stevenson a walkover to the finals of the 123-pound weight class. He will face fellow southpaw Robeisy Ramirez of Cuba for the gold medal on Saturday afternoon.Ramirez, 22, won the flyweight gold medal at the 2012 London Games before moving up in weight for the Rio Games.Stevenson, 19, of Newark, New Jersey, has the opportunity to win the first mens boxing gold medal for Team USA since Andre Ward -- now an undefeated, dominant professional -- won the light heavyweight gold at the 2004 Athens Games.Im ready to put on a show and were about to turn this place out. I think its about to be a great matchup, said Stevenson, who was cheered on by Floyd Mayweather during his quarterfinal victory.Weve got the 2012 Olympic gold medalist from Cuba, a great fighter, and youve got the up-and-coming, rising superstar from USA. Were about put on a show and I plan on coming out victorious.Stevenson heard about Nikitiins withdrawal from the tournament on Wednesday night, but had to wait for the official notification of the walkover on Thursday morning, when they were supposed to weigh in for the semifinal bout. John Brown Cardinals Jersey. found out [Wednesday], but I wasnt really too sure, so I had to stay in the mindset that Im fighting, Stevenson said. I got up, went to weigh-ins and once I weighed in, they told me that Im not fighting.Stevenson said has spent a lot of time studying video of Ramirez, who won a unanimous decision against Murodjon Akhmadaliev of Uzbekistan in their semifinal match on Thursday.I came up watching Robeisy in the Olympics. Its work time, just me and him, mano y mano, Stevenson said. Ive watched a lot of his fights. I know what Im in for. Hes a great fighter. I definitely watched his fight [Thursday]. I paid close attention to it. He had a tough opponent from Uzbekistan and he got it done.Im competitive, so I like competitive fights. I like being in the ring with people that I think are good. For an Olympic gold medal, its going to be a great fight. I promise. Its going to be two talented, skillful fighters and were going to see whos going to come out on top.
