    HAMILTON, Ont. Custom Colorado Avalanche Jerseys . - Gustav Nyquist scored once in regulation and then the shootout winner as the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the host Hamilton Bulldogs 4-3 in the American Hockey League action on Saturday. Jeff Hogan and Calle Jarnkrok also scored for the Griffins (2-0-1) while Nyquist added an assist for a two-point outing. Petr Mrazek made 21 saves in the win. Greg Pateryn, Akim Aliu and Sven Andrighetto scored for the Bulldogs (1-1-0) as Robert Mayer stopped 38-of-41 shots in defeat. Nyquist scored the lone goal of the shootout on the Griffins third attempt. The games first scoring chance fell to the Griffins six minutes into the opening period, as a centering pass found Cory Emmerton alone in the low slot. But, Mayer was alert to the danger and moved into a butterfly to knock the puck clear. Louis Leblanc drew a penalty at 9:34 of the first, when Brennan Evans was whistled for tripping. The Bulldogs quickly punished that mistake to open the scoring on the ensuing power play. The puck shifted across the blue line to Pateryn and, with Patrick Holland drawing a screen in front of Mrazek, he released a low shot that bounced past the goaltender at 10:08. Holland nearly extended the Bulldogs lead in the opening minutes of the second, stickhandling to create space on the right wing, but rang a heavy wrist shot off the near post. The Griffins evened the game at 9:12, when Evans slap shot from the point took a fortunate bounce off the end glass and onto the stick of Nyquist to the right of the net, who elevated a backhanded shot over Mayers shoulder. But Holland and his linemates were not to be denied, and it was the Bulldog winger who created the games next goal just 18 seconds later to retake the lead. A centering pass came to Holland in the high slot and his second attempt on goal rebounded to Andrighetto on the right side, who slotted the puck comfortably into the vacant net with Mrazek out of position. The goal was Andrighettos first in the AHL. Hamilton, though, could not stay out of the penalty box, as the Bulldogs took four of the five minor penalties in the second. That trend proved costly when Andrighetto was whistled for high-sticking at 17:49 of the second, and Grand Rapids struck to tie the game on the ensuing power play. Nyquist found Jarnkrok with a well-weighted centering pass and the centreman did the rest, dropping low to one-time the puck past Mayer at 18:01. The Griffins punished the Bulldogs for another unnecessary penalty early in the third period, after Martin St. Pierre was whistled for cross-checking at 4:28. Nathan Paetschs initial shot from the point on the ensuing power play took a radical bounce through the crease and slid to Hoggan, who only had to tap it past a downed Mayer. Hamilton found the equalizer with the net empty and ten seconds to play, as Andrighettos initial effort on net bounced to Aliu in the slot, who snapped a quick wrister just inside the crossbar. Grand Rapids went 2 for 9 on the powe rplay while Hamilton scored once on three chances with the man advantage. Stitched Avalanche Jerseys . He insists hes not counting. "If youre thinking hits, youre not paying attention to wins," Altuve said Sunday after leading the Houston Astros past the Texas Rangers 3-2. Cheap Avalanche Jerseys . - Rookie Tesho Akindele scored three goals and Fabian Castillo added two in FC Dallas 5-0 victory over the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday night.ASHBURN, Va. - Kirk Cousins has played in 11 games in 2 1/4 seasons for the Washington Redskins. Hes been praised as better than Robert Griffin III after some and derided as nothing better than a career backup after others.Thats an awful lot of zigzag to handle, even for an even-keeled guy.Its been tough, Cousins said Thursday. Even my rookie year, when you only get a couple of spots and everybodys going to try to write the book on who you are as a quarterback.Cousins stock plummeted with a second-half meltdown that included four interceptions in last weeks blowout loss to the New York Giants. He looked nearly as bad as, well, Tom Brady, who finished the game on the bench in the New England Patriots 27-point loss Monday night.Brady, of course, has earned the right to get more chances. Cousins will also have the opportunity to rebound, if only because Griffin is sidelined at least a few more weeks with a dislocated ankle. Besides, Cousins appeared on the verge of forcing a Cousins-Griffin quarterback controversy after back-to-back solid games before the Giants debacle.Where will it all end? Cousins would sure like to know.How do you deal with that? You know, I dont know that I have the perfect answer, Cousins said. Im the kind of guy who would like to know my future and like to know how things are going to play out. I dont. So I try not to ride the roller coaster. I try to be as consistent as I can possibly be and I think that approach is going to help me have success in this league.But, as a quarterback, youre going to have things that go your way, youre going to have times where its going to be tough. I think the guys that last are the guys who can ride it out and stay consistent no matter what.Cousins harrdly has the ideal setting for redemption. Wholesale Avalanche Jerseys. The Redskins are hosting the disruptive defence of the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks on Monday night. Cousins prides himself on preparing the same way every week, but he admitted that the Giants loss is one that will always sit with him in a bad way. Against the Seahawks, hell have to guard against playing a hesitant game in the wake of the four-pick defeat.Thats a natural response to having a game like I had last week, a young quarterback especially, Cousins said. Human nature would say youre going to be a little more careful, but if you do that I think you get in trouble more than you help yourself.The Giants defensive backs said their day was made easier because Cousins was staring down some of his receivers. Thats certainly something not to repeat against All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman and the Seahawks.Hes still progressing, coach Jay Gruden said. Hes very young with limited starts. Thats going to come with experience. Staring down receivers is part of it that you have to learn from. If you stare down receivers against these guys, youre going to throw more than four picks a€” youre going to throw about 11.Notes: Gruden said Tracy Porter has tweaked the right hamstring injury that kept the cornerback out of the first three games. Porter was not on the field for practice. ... TE Niles Paul (concussion) took part in a portion of practice but has yet to be cleared for contact. ... LT Trent Williams (right knee), Shawn Lauvao (right knee) and TE Jordan Reed (left hamstring) were also among those limited.___AP NFL websites: and Joseph White on Twitter: ' ' '
