We cant have this game

LOS ANGELES -- Wayne Gretzky and Luc Robitaille squinted into brilliant sunshine Monday as the 18-wheel truck carrying the NHLs portable refrigeration units pulled up to the outfield entrance to Dodger Stadium. In less than two weeks, their Los Angeles Kings and the rival Anaheim Ducks will turn Chavez Ravine into Californias version of a winter wonderland. The NHL is staging its first warm-weather outdoor game on a hockey rink flanked by a beach volleyball court and an below-ground swimming pool in the famed baseball stadiums outfield. The NHLs ice-makers were already at work on a beautiful 79-degree day, and Gretzky cant wait to see the next step in the evolution of a sport that didnt bloom in the California sun until the Great One moved to Los Angeles in 1988. "Im very proud that I was a piece of the group that was sort of responsible for stamping hockey into this area," Gretzky said while standing on the centre field grass. "It was the right group of guys, from Luc (Robitaille) to Marty McSorley to Kelly Hrudey to Tony Granato," Gretzky added. "Each and every guy understood that this was a different market from other markets in the NHL, and these guys always went above and beyond the call of duty to go out and promote the sport and get more and more kids interested." The game will be a landmark for hockey in the American Southwest, which has produced a handful of NHL players and dozens more prospects in the pipeline over the past quarter-century. But the game also heralds the return of the leagues career scoring leader to hockey prominence. Gretzky has mostly stayed out of the public spotlight for five years since leaving the Phoenix Coyotes bench, but he will be a prominent feature during the festivities, thrilling the NHL. Accompanied to Dodger Stadium by his wife, Janet, Gretzky said he is thrilled to see an outdoor game in the city where he played nearly eight NHL seasons. Robitaille, now the Kings president of business operations, said Gretzky is "like our Babe Ruth, and we need him around." "We cant have this game without having Wayne," Robitaille added. "Its so important hes here. Its so important that he be here for that game. Its the day before his birthday, too. Ive got to remember to have a cake." Gretzky, Robitaille and Anaheim coach Bruce Boudreau got a detailed look at early preparations for the game, which will be played after the sun goes down on Jan. 25. The NHLs ice crews are putting down the foundation for the rink over the next few days, likely beginning the ice-making process Thursday. They will work entirely at night, gradually building up the ice sheet in colder temperatures while keeping it covered during the day. NHL ice specialist Dan Craig is intrigued by the challenge of a warm-weather game, but confident his crew will deliver a workable surface -- although he wont be getting much sleep over the next two weeks while working through the nights. Gretzky and Robitaille also arent worried. After all, they both remember the Kings outdoor exhibition game in 1991 in Las Vegas, where the biggest hitch was a grasshopper invasion of the ice. "People dont realize its like 65 degrees in a hockey arena," Gretzky said. "Its kind of warm. Its not that cold." Air Jordan 3 Ireland Online .

Mario Goetze opened the scoring in the seventh minute, when he was left in space to dispatch the ball first time inside the far post after Thomas Muellers cut-back from the right. Goetze had grazed the outside of the post just a minute before, when he did well to flick the ball over a defender. Mueller made it 2-0 from the penalty spot in the 54th, after Granit Xhaka was penalized for using his arm in a goalmouth scramble. Marc-Andre ter Stegen had just pulled off two fine reflex saves to deny Goetze. Moenchengladbach, previously unbeaten at home, twice struck the post -- through Max Kruse in the 40th after a quick throw-in, and then in the 64th, when Patrick Herrmann let fly from a difficult angle. "Bayern were simply better than we were today," said Ter Stegen, who had more touches of the ball than any other Moenchengladbach player. "When things are going well for Bayern its nearly impossible.&quuot; Bayern stretched its league record unbeaten run to 42 games, and opened up a 10-point lead over Bayer Leverkusen ahead of the rest of the weekends games.dddddddddddd Bayern, the defending champion, still has to play its game in hand at Stuttgart on Wednesday. "If we keep playing like this well be German champions," Bayern president Uli Hoeness said. Mario Mandzukic was left out the visitors squad. Sporting director Matthias Sammer said before the game that the Croatian striker hadnt been training well enough. "I heard he wasnt training well, but I hope its behind us next week, because we need Mario for the important games this season," said Hoeness, who said he didnt know if Robert Lewandowskis signing from Borussia Dortmund for next season had had an effect. Guardiola wouldnt be drawn on Mandzukics omission. "What happens in the team I discuss in the training room, not with the media," Guardiola said. Franck Ribery and Javi Martinez had also been left out, with back and ankle problems respectively.
