HOYLAKE, England - A year ago, Graham DeLaet arrived at the Open Championship wide-eyed and excited to play his first major. [url=https://www.cheapindiansonline.com/1638u-yu-chang-jersey-indians.html]Yu Chang Jersey[/url] . He made the cut and for a rookie, put in a decent effort. But since that time, the Canadian has played three more majors and missed the cut in all three. Add in a missed cut at The Players and theres a pattern starting to show. Those performances stand out from the rest of his otherwise strong record over the past year and DeLaet believes its likely all self-inflicted. "I think more than anything, its just getting used to playing in majors, just trying to treat them like a regular tournament," he said after playing the first nine at Royal Liverpool on Tuesday. "I think in the past, I put too much pressure on myself and made them bigger than they are." Who can blame him? The kid from Weyburn teed it up at Muirfield, Oak Hill, Augusta National and Pinehurst No. 2 in the last 12 months, a pretty solid slate. But now he realizes its time to perform in the majors, not just play in them and thats what hes hoping to do this week. He learned from last year at the Open, he said, and understands that links golf isnt always fair. "You have to really control where the ball is landing," said DeLaet. "You can hit great shots that run, run, run, run right into a bunker. You just really have to be cognizant, thinking all the time about where your ball is going to land and where you look for it to finish. "Everything from 50 yards in front of the green is up to Mother Nature." This years course at Liverpool is a far cry from last years baked out Muirfield course. That layout not only treated golf balls as if they were on airport tarmacs, but also didnt help DeLaets arm any. "I dont have to shallow my swing out because it took a toll on my hand and wrist last year. But theres a little bit of give in the turf; its not quite a fiery as last year. And with that the ball is not quite going crazy when it gets on the ground." DeLaet arrives at Royal Liverpool off a T51 and a missed cut in his last two starts, the latter being the U.S. Open. He was so displeased with his showing of late that he cut off his infamous beard, hoping that might shake things up. He spent part of last week up in Ireland, playing at Doonbeg, Tralee and Lahinch to get immersed in the links feel and is hoping that will inspire him to bigger things this year. "I love it, DeLaet said of links golf. "Its such a cool place and this is such a great golf tournament as well. The fans are so respectful and its just an awesome event." DeLaet understands that the task to success on this course may be somewhat simplistic, but thats what wins tournaments. "Just try to make a lot of pars and give yourself opportunities," said DeLaet. "You cant really force anything in this style of golf. There are maybe a couple of different tee shots where you can get a little more aggressive but I think the main key is just keeping the ball in between the fescue and giving yourself a look on the green so Ill try to do that for 72 holes."

What they did need, the Devils got from Patrik Elias. Elias scored a power-play goal 40 seconds into overtime to give the New Jersey Devils a 3-2 victory over the Dallas Stars. Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalies performance. Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles Kings (4) – On the early goal, he was late to get to the post and Saad banked it off of him. He activates in reverse VH and it hits his shoulder and banks in. On the second goal, he had no chance at it redirected to Toews for the open net. Third goal was a bad one that skipped and hit the top of his pad, momentum Killer after just battling back to tie the game 12 seconds earlier. It was a tough first period allowing three goals on seven shots. Good saves on Kane, Toews and Keith early in second. And big saves on Kane and Hossa on the 5 on 3 as well as a huge left pad save on Shaw back door. Fourth goal goes off of Muzzin shortside, who was also screening him, after he knocked his stick out of hand. Good saves on Shaw and Kane while down 4 to 3 to keep them in game. Big saves with 4:30 left on Hossa and Toews in tight. Left pad save on Bickell was great but not as great as the pad save on Shaw with five seconds left in the third, based on the timing of it.

Big right pad save on Saad early in OT, and tracked the puck well through traffic as Chicago pressed. Got it done when needed, got stronger as the game went on. Corey Crawford, Chicago Blackhawks (3) – He had a good save on Kopitar early and got some help from a post on Toffoli. The first goal was a bad rebound that Carter bats out of the air. The second goal hits Rozsival in from before the rebound is fired blocker side. He made a good glove save on Williams late in the first to keep it at 3-2. Not tested much early in second, but a good save on Williams side to side play. Toffolis goal was a bounce just like the Toews goal in the first; no chance on the play. Good save early on Pearson, not tested much. The fourth goal, by Gaborik, is a bad rebound that punches out and hits him, then drops on his stick for the open net. Great left pad save on Brown with 33 seconds left to send it to OT. He didnt have much of a chance on the game-winning goal, screened and hits Leddy in front and goes over his right shoulder. Tough way to lose. ' ' '
