MONTREAL -- While the Montreal Canadiens appear on the verge of getting their starting goaltender back, the Arizona Coyotes will be without theirs for at least one game. Colby Rasmus Jersey .Starter Mike Smith suffered a lower-body injury in the third period of the Coyotes 7-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators on Tuesday night and was replaced by Montreal native Louis Domingue. The 24-year-old made his first NHL start at the Bell Centre on Feb. 1, 2015, when he overcame two first period goals-against before helping the Coyotes to a 3-2 comeback win.Last season, he took over between the pipes while Smith missed approximately three months while recovering from injury.Hes done this before, Arizona coach Dave Tippett told the teams website. Hes a veteran of jumping in and being the lead guy for a team when a goaltender goes down ... He came in and played really well last year and we expect the same from him this year. Hes matured as a player and as a person. Hes done it before, theres no reason to believe he cant do it again.The Coyotes (1-1-0) will be looking to bounce back after Tuesdays effort. Trailing 3-2 when Smith went down, the Senators scored a pair quickly and the visitors never recovered.After (Smith) goes down, they get two quick ones and thats tough, Arizona forward Jordan Martinook said to following the game. With Louis coming in there, you cant fault him on any of those but they get the two quick ones and were pretty much out of it, were just chasing.Montreal, meanwhile, could have Carey Price back for his first start in nearly 11 months. Sidelined with a flu bug for about a week, during which time he says he lost about seven or eight pounds, which drained his energy, Price participated in his first full team practice on Wednesday. Hell see how he feels energy-wise on Thursday before deciding on his playing status.The Canadiens (2-0-1) have fared well in his absence thanks to strong efforts from back-up Al Montoya. The 31-year-old was sharp in the first period against the Penguins on Tuesday, stopping all 17 shots he faced, and kept at it the rest of the night en route to a 36-save effort in 4-0 win over the defending Stanley Cup champions.He just looks so calm. He reminded me a lot of Pricey (Carey Price), defenseman Nathan Beaulieu said of Montoya. He was seeing everything, making everything look easy, and he made some really difficult saves, especially early on.Its nice knowing that we have two goalies that can step in and do the job.It was also a good night for a couple of Montreal forwards who sputtered offensively in the first two games. Center David Desharnais scored twice and left winger Max Pacioretty showed off his talent with a goal just 23 seconds into the game and a no-look backhand feed to Desharnais in the third period. With both looked upon to produce, especially Pacioretty, both had just one assist heading into the game. Cheap Orioles Jerseys Online . Sgt. Eric ONeal says most of the arrests at Monday nights game were for public drunkenness, though one person was taken into custody on suspicion of trying to steal a seat from the stadium. Eddie Murray Jersey .Y. - Rob Manfred was promoted Monday to Major League Baseballs chief operating officer, which may make him a candidate to succeed Bud Selig as commissioner. . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration. GENEVA -- Former FIFA president Sepp Blatter is now facing a bribery case, and one of his former vice presidents was fined more than $1 million in a separate investigation into kickbacks.The FIFA ethics committee said Friday it opened formal proceedings against Blatter, former secretary general Jerome Valcke and former finance director Markus Kattner over million-dollar payments in their contracts -- some of which were approved by other senior FIFA officials.On a busy day for FIFA prosecutors and judges, former vice president Jeffrey Webb was later fined 1 million Swiss francs ($1.02 million) and banned from soccer for life in another bribery case.The record fine imposed by FIFA was surprising. A life ban for the Cayman Islands banker -- once North Americas top soccer official and a one-time possible successor to Blatter -- was expected after he pleaded guilty in a Brooklyn federal court last November to charges of racketeering, wire fraud and money laundering.FIFA revealed in June, after Kattner was fired, that he, Blatter and Valcke agreed to pay themselves bonuses worth tens of millions of dollars from World Cup profits. Lawyers acting for soccers governing body described evidence suggesting a coordinated effort by three former top officials of FIFA to enrich themselves.Ethics prosecutors said Friday their investigation relates to bribery and corruption, accepting gifts and conflicts of interest for all three men, plus a breach of confidentiality by Kattner.The case involves salaries and bonuses paid to Mr. Blatter, Mr. Valcke and Mr. Kattner as well as other provisions included in the contracts of these three individuals, the statement said.Blatter received a 12 million Swiss franc ($12 million) bonus after the successful 2014 World Cup in Brazil and would have been due another 12 million Swiss francs for completing his 2015-19 presidential term, the contracts reveal.Valcke was awarded a $10 million World Cup bonus for 2014 and was due $11 million from the 2018 tournament in Russia.Kattners contract was redrafted in May 2015, days after the U.S. and Swiss federal investigations were revealed by police raids on Zurichs Baur au Lac hotel. The contract was extended through 2023 with extra clauses guaraanteeing termination pay and indemnification for legal fees and restitution claims. Cheap Orioles Jerseys Authentic. These two provisions appear to violate mandatory Swiss law, FIFA said in June.Blatter and Valcke are already serving ethics bans and face criminal proceedings by Swiss federal prosecutors as part of a wider investigation of corruption implicating FIFA and leading soccer officials.The 80-year-old Blatter is awaiting the verdict from a Court of Arbitration for Sport panel in his appeal against a six-year ban for conflict of interest. That case relates to a $2 million payment he authorized in 2011 for Michel Platini, the former UEFA president who also served as a FIFA vice president.Valckes 12-year ethics ban for various charges of financial misconduct and destroying evidence was later reduced to 10 years on appeal. The French former TV personality can pursue a further appeal at CAS.All three men have previously denied wrongdoing, and Kattners defense was previously stated that his contracts were known and approved by other FIFA officials and auditors.It is unclear if FIFA has begun proceedings to recover money already paid out to the three men.Webb was elected in 2012 as president of the CONCACAF region to replace the disgraced Jack Warner, who left soccer to escape FIFA sanctions in an election bribery case. Warner has also been indicted by U.S. authorities and is fighting extradition from his native Trinidad and Tobago.Indictments published by the U.S. Department of Justice last year alleged that Webb sought bribes soon after his election, in conspiracy with CONCACAFs then-secretary general and marketing agencies.Webb was arrested at a luxury hotel in Zurich in May 2015 and extradited weeks later to the United States. He was released on bail after posting a $10 million bond that was secured with his wifes diamond wedding ring, plus an array of high-end cars and watches, and 10 properties.He pleaded guilty last November to one count of racketeering conspiracy, three counts of wire fraud conspiracy and three counts of money laundering conspiracy, the FIFA ethics committee said Friday. Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet China Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NFL Gear Cheap NFL T-shirts Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China ' ' '
