Dortmund, Germany (SportsNetwork. cheap nike free shoes china .com) - Naldo found the back of the net five minutes from time on Wednesday to rescue a point for Wolfsburg in a 2-2 draw with Borussia Dortmund at Signal Iduna Park. Dortmund and Wolfsburg have been trending in opposite directions over the past few weeks as Wolfsburg entered the match in second place in the Bundesliga and riding a four-match unbeaten streak across all competitions. Dortmund, meanwhile, have uncharacteristically struggled all season, finding itself in 16th place in the Bundesliga with just 15 points. The home side got off to a positive start as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang opened the scoring in the eighth minute, but Wolfsburg came back with an equalizer through former Chelsea man Kevin de Bruyne after 29 minutes. Dortmund then forged back in front through Ciro Immobile in the 76th minute, but they couldnt hold the lead as Naldo, a defender by trade, found the equalizer to save a point for Wolfsburg. The result keeps Wolfsburg in second place with 31 points, 11 behind leaders Bayern Munich, while Dortmund sits in the relegation zone with 15 points. Also in the Bundesliga on Wednesday, Borussia Monchengladbach roared past 10- man Werder Bremen, 4-1, at Borussia Park. Max Kruse opened the scoring with a penalty strike in the 32nd minute and Oscar Wendt doubled the advantage six minutes later. Zlatko Junuzovic pulled one back for Bremen in the 51st minute, but the visitors then went down to 10 men as Luca Caldirola was shown a second yellow card and sent off in the 66th minute. Christoph Kramer and Branimir Hrgota fired home with other two tallies for Monchengladbach, which jumped into third place on 27 points, ahead of Bayer Leverkusen on goal difference. Stefan Aigner and Alexander Meier each scored a pair of goals for Eintracht but it wasnt enough to secure three points as John Brooks, Anis Ben-Hatira, Julian Schieber and Peter Niemeyer all scored for Hertha Berlin and the clubs played to a wild 4-4 draw. Stefan Kiesslings 79th-minute strike was enough to lift Bayer Leverkusen to a 1-0 win over Hoffenheim, while goals from Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Roman Neustaedter powered Schalke to a 2-1 win over Paderborn. nike free discount .

Miller reached right to deflect Mikhail Grabovskis attempt with just over 2 minutes remaining in regulation, and then made two more saves in the shootout Sunday to give the Sabres a 2-1 win over the Washington Capitals. "I was looking down at my papers for the next line combination, and the boys tell me I missed the save of the year," Buffalo interim coach Ted Nolan said. "He was really good." Miller finished with 28 saves, Tyler Ennis scored in the first period, and Cody Hodgson had the only goal in the shootout for the Sabres, whose 11-game road skid was the second-longest in club history, behind a 12-game streak in the 2011-12 season. "We didnt want to make it 12 in a row. Its already gotten too far," Miller said. "But its something the guys can feel good about." Miller provided a big lift for Buffalo with his terrific stop after Grabovski gathered a rebound in front of the crease. As skilful as it looked, Miller said he was more lucky than anything. "Thats one of those ones where youre just completely out of options," said Miller, who will represent the U.S. next month at the Sochi Olympics. "The puck came through traffic, hit me right in the pads instead of the stick, and I knew I was in trouble. I saw him kind of reload and get position, and those can certainly go wrong for you. More often than not, those guys are going to score, and I dont think he quite got all of it." Jason Chimera scored in the first period, and Philipp Grubauer made 30 saves for the Capitals, who have lost five of seven, including a pair of 2-1 shootout losses to the worst-in-NHL Sabres. NHL rules require that every game have a winner, which seemed a generous gesture in a game in which both teams played as if tthey were already on the Olympic break. wholesale nike free shoes. . The mascots and youngsters who played a mini-game during the first intermission generated more riveting scoring chances than the Capitals and Sabres did for long stretches of the second and third periods. "I think the guys are a little tired," Washington coach Adam Oates said. "I dont think we had the energy we should." But Buffalo will take any win it can get. The Sabres actually put the puck in the net twice in the first period -- once for themselves and once for the Capitals. Brian Flynn, trying to stop a pass from Chimera to Marcus Johansson, got his stick on the puck and directed it past his own goalie to give Washington the early lead. Chimera was given credit for the goal. Ennis tied it late in the period on a power play. With 53 seconds remaining in regulation, Karl Alnzer put the puck in the net for the Capitals, but the goal didnt count because Nicklas Backstrom had tripped Hodgson to give Alzner the clear shot. The Sabres were given a power play that carried into overtime. The Sabres welcomed back Hodgson, who had missed eight games with a hand injury, and Ville Leino, who had been out for three games with a lower body injury. Not on the ice was prospect Mikhail Grigorenko, who is refusing to accept an assignment to the juniors. The Sabres, who have scored by far the fewest goals scored in the league, are trying to steady themselves during a period of upheaval. Sundays game was the second under new general manager Tim Murphy. "I think today was a good opportunity to reset and say were going to play a hard-nosed game," Miller said, "and we did a nice job."
