Report: Brighton 1 Leicester 1

first_imgJamie Vardy converted a late penalty to earn 10-man Leicester City a gritty 1-1 Premier League draw at Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday.The Foxes were a man light for more than an hour after James Maddison received two bookings in as many first-half minutes – the second for simulation as he threw himself to the floor in the box in trying to win a foul against Shane Duffy.Maddison’s meek reaction as he trudged off suggested he knew he could have no complaints, but Vardy climbed off the bench in the second period and dispatched his 79th-minute spot-kick into the net to cancel out Glenn Murray’s early opener. Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Murray, who signed a one-year contract extension during the international break, headed in his seventh league goal of a stellar campaign 15 minutes in to celebrate his 100th Premier League appearance, but the Seagulls could not hold on as time ticked down.100 – Glenn Murray is making his 100th @premierleague appearance today. At 35y 60d, he’s the ninth oldest outfield player to reach the milestone in the competition. Mint. #BHALEI pic.twitter.com/MrB2MvX5zB — OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 24, 2018 The pouring rain provided a fitting backdrop for Leicester’s miserable start to proceedings, when only Kasper Schmeichel’s clawing save from Beram Kayal prevented them going behind in the 12th minute.Brighton did break the deadlock shortly afterwards, though, as Murray got across the front post and glanced in Anthony Knockaert’s right-wing corner.A cynical foul on Knockaert earned Maddison his first caution and two minutes later a disgraceful dive to try and win the Foxes a penalty earned him a second yellow and a red.As the second half progressed the edginess seemed to grow among the home faithful and Kayal’s rash foul on Kelechi Iheanacho allowed Vardy to rattle in from the spot and ensure Maddison’s dive did not prove too costly. What does it mean? Brighton looking strong at the AmexChris Hughton’s men have three wins and two draws from their opening six home league games in 2018-19 and, with 15 points from 13 overall matches, look a safe bet to steer well clear of the relegation battle this time around.Murray still in mint condition At 35, the striker is blossoming in the latter stages of his career. His six home Premier League goals this season have been worth eight points to the Seagulls.Maddison’s moment of madness His trip on a counter-attacking Knockaert was what the pros would call “taking one for the team”, but Maddison’s awful dive two minutes later was a stain on the game.Key Opta Facts7 – Glenn Murray is the highest scoring English player in the top five European leagues so far this season. Vintage. #BHALEI— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 24, 2018- Brighton have lost just one of their last nine home Premier League games (W4 D4).- Since the start of last season, Leicester have both scored and conceded in a league-high 33 different Premier League games.- Leicester have picked up four red cards in the Premier League this season, twice as many as any other side.- Vardy ended a run of 468 Premier League minutes without scoring for Leicester, since netting another penalty against Newcastle in September.- Since his Premier League debut in August 2014, Vardy has scored 12 penalties, a figure only Sergio Aguero (17) and Harry Kane (16) can better in that period.What’s next? Brighton make the long trip north to Huddersfield Town next Saturday, when Leicester host Watford. Before that, the Foxes have their rearranged EFL Cup last-16 tie at home to Southampton. read morelast_img read more

Halak, Isles Blank Sabres, 3-0

first_imgUNIONDALE, N.Y. — Once again, Jaroslav Halak has played a major role with the New York Islanders closing in on a playoff spot.“(Halak) made a few big saves,” Islanders coach Jack Capuano said after the Islanders’ starting goaltender made 21 saves for his sixth shutout of the season to lead New York to a 3-0 win over the Buffalo Sabres on April 4.Halak improved to 37-16-3 this season, and has the franchise’s single-season win record.He was aided by goals from Kyle Okposo, Brock Nelson and Nikolay Kulemin. Kulemin’s goal, his 14th of the season, came in his 500th game.Okposo opened the scoring at 6:37 of the first with a power-play goal from the left circle. New York’s right wing gathered John Tavares’ diagonal, cross-ice pass, then waited a moment before sending a shot past Sabres goaltender Andrey Makarov.In his first NHL start, Makarov stopped 33 of 36 shots for Buffalo. The Sabres have lost three of five, and have been shut out 12 times this season.“I thought he played very well for his first game. He can be very proud of his first experience. He acted like a very mature young man,” Sabres coach Ted Nolan said of his goaltender.Buffalo fell to 22-49-8 and has three games remaining this season.“I was very proud of the way we played. We battled well,” Nolan said. “You can’t ask for more. They’re giving (everything they have).”Entering April 4 Buffalo’s 52 points were the fewest in the league, followed by the Arizona Coyotes’ 54.Both the Coyotes and Sabres could finish the season with the league’s two worst records. The team that has the league’s worst record can select no lower than second in June’s draft.The upcoming draft possesses what are widely considered to be generational talents in the Ontario Hockey League’s Erie Otters center Connor McDavid and Boston University freshman center Jack Eichel. McDavid had 120 points in 47 games, while Eichel had 67 in 38.The Sabres had a power play after a four-minute double minor assessed to New York defenseman Brian Strait for high-sticking Buffalo left winger Nicholas Deslauriers late in the second period.However, the Sabres only generated three shots on the power play that spanned the end of the second period and start of the third.“It was big,” said Okposo of killing Buffalo’s four-minute power play. “Our penalty kill has been hot over the past month.”Nelson made it 2-0 when he scored his 20th of the season 9:32 into the third. An unassisted goal, the play began when Zach Bogosian’s diagonal, cross-ice clearing pass ricocheted off a stick in the slot and Nelson retrieved the turnover just inside the blue line before sending an unassisted goal from the left faceoff circle.“It happened pretty quick,” Bogosian said. “Off the stick and right to the guy.”Kulemin ended the scoring with a tip of Travis Hamonic’s drive with 6:47 left. Despite moving to 46-27-6 this season, New York did not clinch a playoff berth.Still, New York is in good position to qualify for the playoffs as it only needs two points in its final three games to get in.“If you would have told us that at this point with 98 points, we’d still be battling, it’s very surprising,” Capuano said. “It’s amazing the races that are going on in the East and West. You can’t control that. You can control what you can control and that’s all we are focused on right now.(DENIS GORMAN)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more
