SOCHI, Russia - Jonathan Toews doesnt know where hell keep this Olympic gold medal. Derrick Shelby Jersey . His mom and dad have the other one from four years ago back home in Winnipeg. "Maybe Ill hang em up together," he says. Toews has not yet reached the age of 26. He already owns two Stanley Cups and now his second gold on the grand Olympic stage - all in the last four years. He also boasts gold from two World Juniors and another from the 2007 Worlds. He scored the first goal in Canadas 3-0 triumph over Sweden in Sundays gold medal match and further cemented himself as one of the defining - if not the defining - winners and crunch-time players of his generation. He was the best player on the biggest stage in Vancouver and remained right up there again this time around in Sochi. That winning feeling never seems to get old. "I think every time you get the chance," said Toews, gold medal still around his neck afterward, "theres still that feeling of nerves that you dont want to pass up the chance to win. You want to do it again. You never know how many chances youre going to get so you want to do the best you can to bring it home. Im just lucky to be part of these teams that want to win as bad as I do." That burning desire to win is what makes Toews such a special player and leader at a wise-beyond-his-years age of 25. Its why the Chicago Blackhawks pinned him with the captaincy at the tender age of 20, this after just a single season in the NHL. He is both willing and able to do whatever it takes to win. Score a goal. Kill a penalty. Win a faceoff. Shut down the oppositions top offensive force. Toews can and will do it all. On this day against the Swedes, it was scoring the elusive first goal and eventual game-winner. Toews, who led the forwards with over 19 minutes, hadnt scored before that in these Olympics, but there he was redirecting a terrific pass from Jeff Carter and setting the tone for Canada. "I know Johnny cares so much about hockey," said Canadian and Blackhawks teammate Duncan Keith, also a winner of two Cups and two Olympic gold medals. "He lives and breathes hockey. Thats the way he is as a person. That sort of stuff doesnt surprise me at all." In the semifinal against the Americans, he was shutting down the previously unstoppable Phil Kessel, keeping the eventual tournament scoring leader (tied with Erik Karlsson) off the board entirely in a tense 1-0 win. In fact, it was the line of Toews, Carter and Patrick Marleau that keyed in on the oppositions best throughout the entire tournament. The trio was a driving force in Canadas dominant defensive effort, one that saw them yield exactly three goals in six games and not one in either the semifinal or final. "Hes a winner," said Alex Pietrangelo, less than two years younger than Toews, but worlds apart in experience. "Resume speaks for itself. Obviously a great leader. Plays the game the right way. Plays the game hard, every practice, every game. Great guy to learn from, great guy to follow." Toews is so respected around the league for his winning accomplishments that even Sidney Crosby, the games top player, checked with his Chicago counterpart before accepting the captaincy for Team Canada. He wanted to make sure Toews, a winner of two Cups to just one for Crosby, was okay with it. For first-time Olympians like Pietrangelo and Matt Duchene, Toews and Crosby were the two to watch here in Sochi, the two to follow on the difficult path to gold, the second in as many Olympics for Canada. "Him and Sid are the two guys I probably look up most to in the league," said Duchene. "You want to follow in the footsteps of those guys." Stepping into the lineup for the injured John Tavares in Fridays semifinal against the U.S., Duchene said he looked to Toews and Crosby for leadership. "...they were kind of my calming factors. I looked at them and saw how they were dealing with it and thought okay, thats where I want to go as an individual so this is how I have to act and how I have to deal with it. "I didnt have any nerves the last two games and that was pretty amazing." For the second time in as many gold medal games it was Toews and Crosby both scoring for Canada - the latter on a breakaway against Lundqvist - both elevating their play under the most pressure-infused of situations.  Both knew nothing less than gold was good enough, either for the nation or themselves as individuals. "This is old hat for them this game here," Duchene said with a growing smile. "This probably ranks in the top five biggest games ever [for them], not number one like me by a mile. Its pretty cool. Those are the guys you want to be like as you get older." Tony Gonzalez Jersey . Modin, 36, tallied seven goals and three assists in 36 games with the Thrashers this season. The Sundsvall, Sweden, native has posted 232 goals and 230 assists in 894 career NHL games with Toronto, Tampa Bay, Columbus, Los Angeles and Atlanta and has appeared in 57 post-season contests, helping the Lightning capture the 2004 Stanley Cup Championship. Sean Harlow Jersey .

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Paul Goldschmidt doesnt keep track of his RBIs. The rest of the Diamondbacks are voluntarily doing it for him. Goldschmidt set a Diamondbacks record with his third grand slam of the season on Tuesday night and became the first NL player to drive in 100 runs, powering Arizona to a 5-2 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. Goldschmidt connected in the eighth inning off J.J. Hoover, ending the relievers streak of 23 scoreless appearances. His 31st homer tied him with Pittsburghs Pedro Alvarez for the NL lead. All of his career grand slams have come this season. "I hope hes got a big run left in him," manager Kirk Gibson said. "The team feeds off Patrick (Corbin) and Goldy. Theyve been our most consistent guys all year." Goldschmidt knew his RBI total was in the 90s coming into that at-bat, but didnt realize hed reached triple digits until he rounded the bases and his teammates pointed it out. They dont mind doing the counting. "Hes impressive to watch play every day," catcher Wil Nieves said. "Hes so clutch. Hes unbelievable." Corbin (13-3) stymied Cincinnatis lefty-dominated lineup, allowing six hits, including Chris Heiseys two-run homer, during his second complete game. Corbin matched his career high with 10 strikeouts. He threw first-pitch strikes to 27 of the 33 batters he faced and didnt walk a batter in his most dominating performance of the season. "Today I had my best slider," Corbin said. "I felt good warming up in the bullpen. I thought it would be a good game. I knew I could go to my slider at any time." The left-hander shut down the Reds left-handed threats -- Shin-Soo Choo, Joey Votto and Jay Bruce were a combined 0 for 12 with seven strikeouts. "He makes some of their hitters look so bad -- and theyre unbelievable hitters, especially Votto and Bruce," Nieves said. The Diamondbacks evened their series at a game apiece and moved five games behind the Reds for the final NL wild card berth. Arizona has won six of its last eight games. "Weve got some work to do," Goldschmidt said. "Theres some good teams ahead of us. Its not like were one game behind." Cincinnati lost for only the fourth time in its last 14 games. A bigger concern: Tony Cingrani (6-3) left in the fourth inning with a strained lower back. The left-hander has been filling in for Johnny Cueto,, who is on the disabled list for the third time this season with soreness behind his pitching shoulder. Wes Schweitzer Jersey. Cingrani said his back has bothered him in his last few weeks. "It finally bothered me enough that it was noticeable," Cingrani said. "I felt it before. It came on gradually. It hasnt been this bad." Cingrani retired the first 10 batters before Martin Prado hit his 12th homer. One out later, Aaron Hill doubled off the wall in left-centre, extending his hitting streak to 13 games. A trainer and manager Dusty Baker went to the mound to talk to Cingrani, who was replaced by Alfredo Simon. Baker said Cingrani had kept quiet about his bad back until he had to leave the game. "He didnt tell me," Baker said. "These young guys want to stay in the big leagues and stay in the rotation." The defending NL Central champions were feeling good about getting their starting lineup back to full strength with Ryan Ludwicks return last week from a shoulder injury that had sidelined him since opening day. Now, the rotation is in flux as they try to overtake Pittsburgh and St. Louis. Cingranis injury spoiled a matchup of left-handers born two weeks apart in July 1989. Corbin, who is two weeks younger than Cingrani, kept the Reds off-balance with his slider. The Diamondbacks are 21-4 when Corbin starts. He has allowed two runs or less in 19 starts this season, tied with the Dodgers Clayton Kershaw for most in the NL. He got a few words from Choo after throwing a chin-high fastball to the leadoff hitter in the sixth. Plate umpire Jerry Meals stepped in, Choo pointed to chin and said something, then got back in the batters box without further complaint and struck out. Notes: Fans brought more than 600 dogs to the game as part of an annual pet promotion. No fireworks were set off on Heiseys homer so as not to scare the dogs. ... Goldschmidts 100 RBIs match Adam LaRoches club record for a first baseman. ... Diamondbacks C Miguel Montero, on the DL since Aug. 1 with a strained lower back, felt fine a day after he caught five innings on a rehab assignment. He got the day off and will catch again on Wednesday. ... RH Brandon McCarthy (2-7) starts the third game for Arizona, trying to emerge from a slump. Hes 0-4 with a 6.41 ERA in his last four starts. The Reds go with RH Mike Leake (10-5), who has a 6.12 career ERA against Arizona. Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys NFL China Cheap Jerseys 2019 Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys ' ' '
