The Calgary Flames will try to stay hot on Monday night with a fifth straight win over Carolina as they visit the Hurricanes and PNC Arena. Antonio Garcia Youth Jersey . The Hurricanes picked up their fourth victory in five games on Saturday with a 6-4 decision over the Florida Panthers. Johnny Gaudreau and Mark Giordano each had a goal and two assists, while Lance Bouma provided the go-ahead goal. Gaudreau notched a career-high three points, while Giordano has tallied four goals and seven assists over a six-game point streak. The defenseman has multiple points in four straight. David Jones, Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan also scored. Thats a big win for us, Bouma said. Thats something we talked about before the game is that we needed this one. Its nice to come in here and get that for sure. We stuck with it all night long, and after we were down we didnt get too low. Jonas Hiller earned the win in relief by stopping all nine shots he faced. Karri Ramo was pulled in the second period after giving up four goals on 22 shots. Hiller will get the start tonight for the finale of a five-game road trip and is 4-1-0 with a 1.58 goals against average and .946 save percentage in five career starts against the Hurricanes. That includes a 5-0 victory at home on Oct. 23, with Hiller making 16 saves. Monahan scored twice, while Bouma, Matt Stajan and Dennis Wideman lit the lamp once each. Cam Ward allowed all five goals on 24 shots for the Hurricanes as he fell to 2-3-0 with a 4.06 GAA and .858 save percentage in six career meetings with the Flames. Ward may get the start again tonight after Anton Khudobin made 35 saves in Saturdays 4-3 overtime loss to the Washington Capitals. Khudobin yielded the game-winning goal with 14 seconds on the clock after kicking away Alex Ovechkins initial shot as Nicklas Backstrom buried home the rebound. I tried to focus on the first shot. The rebound was unlucky, I would say, Khudobin said. Its just a tough loss. Riley Nash, Eric Staal and Elias Lindholm tallied for the Hurricanes, whose four-game win streak came to a halt. Lindholm has five goals and seven points over a five-game point streak. The Hurricanes have not beaten the Flames since a 6-5 shootout decision at home on Jan. 11, 2011. Calgary, which has won eight of the last 10 meetings overall, is likely to have forward Devin Setoguchi in the lineup tonight after he left Saturdays win in the second period with an upper-body injury. Deatrich Wise Jr. Womens Jersey . -- Stacy Lewis shot 7-under 65 to lead the LPGA Tour team to the championship of the 3Tour Challenge on Tuesday. Antonio Garcia Jersey . While plenty of statistics illustrate Torontos turnaround in the second year of manager Ryan Nelsens tenure, stopping goals is not one of them. http://www.authoritypatriotsshop.com/derek-rivers-patriots-jersey-c-74/ . PAUL, Minn.DALLAS -- Former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent was convicted of intoxication manslaughter Wednesday for a fiery wreck that killed his teammate and close friend, Jerry Brown. Brent, 25, showed no reaction when he learned the verdict. He was led from the courtroom in handcuffs in front of crying family members who were in the front row of the courtroom gallery. He faces up to 20 years in prison, though he could also get probation. The sentencing phase was scheduled to begin on Thursday. Lawyers from both sides remain under a gag order that prevented them from commenting after the proceedings. Prosecutors say Brent, a defensive tackle, was drunk when he crashed his Mercedes on a suburban Dallas highway in December 2012, killing Brown, a linebacker on the Cowboys practice squad who had also been Brents teammate at the University of Illinois. Officers who arrived on scene saw Brent trying to pull Browns body from the wreckage. Police say Brents blood alcohol level was tested shortly after the crash at 0.18 per cent, more than twice the legal limit for drivers in Texas. Prosecutors last week argued that the burly, 320-pound defensive tackle had as many as 17 drinks that night of the crash. Brents lawyers argued the blood tests used by police were faulty and that Brent could not have drank nearly that much. Attorney George Milner said his client was "guilty of being stupid behind the wheel of a car," not drinking beforehand. Brent retired from the NFL last year, but his ties to the Cowboys were prominent at trial. Two current players, Barry Church and Danny McCray, testified about hanging oout with Brent and Brown, first playing video games, then having dinner and going to Privae, a Dallas nightclub. Antonio Garcia Patriots Jersey. Jurors saw video of Brent appearing to hold bottles of Champagne in each hand and credit-card receipts that showed Brent had purchased three bottles. They also saw police dash cam footage of Brent losing his balance during field sobriety tests and occasionally stumbling over his words while talking to officers. The case now moves to sentencing. Milner has previously said his client should receive probation, and Browns mother, Stacey Jackson, has said in interviews that she has forgiven Brent. Jackson could testify on Brents behalf at sentencing. Prosecutors have indicated they will push for jail time for Brent and have talked about the potential to send a message about intoxication manslaughter. His conviction comes just after weeks of fierce debate about a North Texas teen, Ethan Couch, who received probation for intoxication manslaughter after a wreck that left four people dead. Couchs case, and the so-called "affluenza" defence his attorneys employed, became the subject of fierce, widespread scrutiny. Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins has attended parts of Brents trial and whispered in prosecutors ears during the questioning of one witness. Watkins told a sports radio station last year that prosecutors had the responsibility to make sure Brent "loses his freedom." Brent, a defensive tackle, had played in all 12 games of the 2012 NFL season before the crash. He retired in July. Brown was signed to the Cowboys practice squad in the 2012 season.
