#1 game, but at about 8:45, the game was called.d von mary123 27.08.2019 11:17

(STATS) -- A tumultuous turn of events has Delaware in a highly unusual position as it prepares for an unfamiliar opponent.With co-defensive coordinator Dennis Dottin-Carter now in charge, the reeling Blue Hens enter their first-ever meeting with No. 24 Stony Brook attempting to avoid their first five-game losing streak since 1939.Its been a whirlwind last few days for a Delaware program among the most tradition-rich at the FCS level. The Blue Hens squandered an 11-point lead in last Saturdays 24-17 loss at William & Mary to fall to 0-3 in CAA play, triggering the dismissal of head coach Dave Brock the following day.The players are hurt, without a doubt, Dottin-Carter said. So my message to them was we need to be together. We need to, as (athletic director) Chrissi (Rawak) put it, weve got to pivot and move forward.The Blue Hens last four-game skid also prompted a change in leadership, as the administration ended K.C. Keelers otherwise successful 11-year reign after a 5-6 finish in 2012. But while Keeler was taking Sam Houston State to consecutive FCS semifinals appearances over the past two seasons and a current No. 1 ranking in the STATS Top 25, Brock was unable to elevate UD out of its mid-level standing in CAA Football during his 3 1/2-year tenure.Though sagging attendance and increasing fan apathy surely played a part in the decision, Brock ultimately couldnt complete the season because his team wasnt able to close out games. After being outscored 15-7 in the fourth quarter in a 28-21 home loss to Maine on Oct. 8, Delaware (2-4) surrendered 21 straight points over a 7 1/2-minute span in the final period last week in Williamsburg.Thats what this conference is about, winning games in the fourth quarter, Dottin-Carter said. We had put ourselves in the position we actually want to be in, having an opportunity in the fourth quarter, but weve got to finish.Dottin-Carters first foe as an interim head coach has had no such issues. Stony Brook (4-2, 3-0) has outscored the opposition 55-3 in the second half in winning its first three CAA games. After putting forth a sluggish and penalty-marred offensive performance through three quarters last week against Rhode Island, the rising Seawolves responded with two touchdown drives in the fourth to pull out a 14-3 victory.Youve got to play the fourth quarter of every game and weve been able to do that two weeks in a row, come out and take charge in the fourth quarter and play through adversity, coach Chuck Priore said. So I think were growing up that way.The Seawolves also rallied late to deal No. 19 North Dakota a 13-9 defeat in the season opener, one of two signature 2016 wins for a program thats stepping out of its recent run of mediocrity. After joining the CAA in 2013 following a dominant four-year stretch in the Big South, Stony Brook went 10-14 in league games over its first three seasons and didnt finish higher than fifth in any of those years.An improved ground game headed by FBS transfers Stacey Bedell and Jordan Gowins has helped spark the revival, as has the play of an always-stingy defense coordinated by Delaware native and former Blue Hens assistant Lyle Hemphill. The Seawolves rank in the FCS top 15 in total yards allowed (306.3 ypg), rushing defense (105.7 ypg) and yards allowed per rush attempt (3.2).Delaware, which has never started 0-4 in league play during its 30-year history of conference affiliation, hopes to combat the Seawolves strength with a relentless rushing attack which averages over 270 yards and could have top back Wes Hills available. The junior missed the William & Mary game with a leg injury but amassed a career-high 242 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries against Maine.Theyre a physical team, so weve got to match their physicality, Priore said. Theyve got some good backs coming at you in the run game. Theyll control the game if you let them, so youve got to be able to make their first-down carries be one and two yards and put them in a little longer situation for second and third down.

The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick. TAMPA, Fla. -- Not much has gone right for the Tampa Bay Lightning in the last 11 games, and their penalty kill is among the biggest problems.In going 2-7-2 in the last 11 games, the Lightning are giving up goals on 34 percent of opponents power plays, with 14 goals in all, including both goals in a shootout loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.Killing penalties has cost us points down the stretch, Lightning coach Jon Cooper said of his teams recent struggles. Thats an area you have to be good at.The Lightning (15-14-3) are depleted by injuries, and that includes forward Ryan Callahan, out the last nine games with a hip injury and a key part of Tampa Bays penalty kill unit.What could help that short-handed slump for the Lightning is a Tuesday home game with the Detroit Red Wings (14-14-4), who rank 29th in power-play percentage, ahead of only the New York Islanders by converting only 13 percent of their opportunities.The Lightning continue to count on their power play as a strength, with 26 power-play goals this season, second only to the Philadelphia Flyers.Tampa Bay was supposed to be getting Detroit on the tail end of a back-to-back, but Monday nights game at the Carolina Hurricanes was postponed after a compressor in PNC Arenas ice-freezing machine blew out.Detroit had to wait two hours as the game was initially delayed with hopes of starting before the 9:30 deadline for a game the night before a team plays another NHL game, but at about 8:45, the game was called.dddddddddddd It will be rescheduled.Detroit had bounced back nicely Saturday with a 6-4 win over the Anaheim Ducks, ending a four-game losing streak in which they had scored a total of three goals. Theyre 1-3-1 in their last five, so the Lightning also present them with a chance to get back on track, even on the road.Detroits Henrik Zetterberg said players had a good sense the game might not be played because of ice conditions but waited until they had official word. Theyll arrive in Tampa earlier than they would after a normal game, and theyll have a morning skate instead of an optional skate now as a result.A little different, Zetterberg said. We prepared for it as a normal game. ... We just killed some time. We had a feeling pretty early that it wouldnt be a game. ... The biggest concern was the safety of the players.Tampa Bay-Detroit is a rematch of last years opening-round playoff series that the Lightning won in five games. Tampa Bay beat Detroit 6-4 in Tampa in the season opener, then 4-3 in Detroit.After Tuesdays game, the teams dont meet again until doing so twice in seven days in late March. ' ' '
