Have you heard of Buccis Overtime Challenge? Well, this is Buccis Hat Trick Challenge. Cheap 49ers Jerseys . Whats the challenge part? Regularly coming up with three hits about the World Cup of Hockey. Sundays game features Team Europe versus Team?Sweden?(1 p.m. ET, ESPN and on WatchESPN).1. Crosby is all the rage again:?Its easy to forget that just a few years ago we werent sure what was to become of Sidney Crosby. His neck and head injuries were robbing him of seasons in his prime, and his team had made no real postseason impact since 2009. The Penguins were bounced in the second round of the playoffs in 2014 and in the first round in 2015, and Crosby -- who had played with such rage and emotion early in his career -- seemed to lack an edge.I was an intense athlete as a young adult and I always enjoy watching those athletes who compete in a similar manner. Early last season Crosby stopped producing like he always had. One coach firing, two trades and a couple of AHL call-ups later, the Penguins won the Stanley Cup, Crosby won the Conn Smythe and now hes on another career roll. He will soon add a World Cup and a World Cup MVP to his résumé. I miss the days of his demonstrative, rage-filled play. There is not enough of that for me in the NHL. But what a year -- and what a résumé -- he is building.2. Marchand of the Penguins??So?Brad Marchand is a free agent next July 1. And while he has a gem of an on-ice running mate in Boston in?Patrice Bergeron, its been kind of fun playing with Crosby at the World Cup, I imagine. I mean, if anything, it gives Marchand leverage to get eight years from the?Boston Bruins. Marchands price keeps going up.3. Waiting for?Gaudreau:?Wednesday night, I sauntered over to the Royal York Hotel in Toronto. It has a cool bar thats dark and warm. I had stayed there while working the NBA playoff series between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors this past spring. As I twirled through the revolving doors, I noticed a young kid in a baseball hat smiling. He looked like he was anywhere between the ages of 16 and 19, and I thought maybe he was an American who watches SportsCenter in America and happened to be in town for the World Cup.As I got closer and was about to say hi to what I assumed was an ESPN viewer, I then realized it was Johnny Gaudreau. The?Calgary Flames?winger (whos 23)?looks young even without a hat, but like many men his age, he looks even younger while wearing one. (Tiger Woods at 30 looked 20 in a hat and 40 without one.) The 5-foot-9 Gaudreau looked like a Backstreet Boy with his hat on.We talked a bit as he prepared to meet some of his North America teammates for dinner. You know, just a kid in Toronto who has just owned the North America-Sweden game and is about to make millions with the Flames. And to think some questioned whether Gaudreau could do what he did in college in the pros. His coaches and teammates at Boston College told me two years ago at the 2014 Frozen Four that he was an otherworldly talent who would thrive in the NHL -- no matter how small and young he looked. Cyber Monday 49ers Jerseys .

PAUL, Minn. DETROIT -- Mikael Backlund and the Calgary Flames got their six-game road trip started in the best way possible.Backlund scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:46 left in the third period to give Calgary a 3-2 victory over the slumping Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.This is huge, because were looking at these six games almost like a playoff series, said Flames defenseman Dougie Hamilton, who had three assists. We know we have to pick up some wins on this trip, and this is a good start.Garnet Hathaway got his first career goal and Matt Stajan also scored for Calgary. Chad Johnson stopped 21 shots.I thought this was a very even game, but we did a nice job of capitalizing on our chances, Flames coach Glen Gulutzan said. We didnt lose any momentum coming out of the Chicago game, where we played very well in a loss.Tomas Tatar and Anthony Mantha scored for Detroit, which lost its fourth straight game. Jimmy Howard made 23 saves.I think we gave them their chances. I think from the start, a few turnovers in our own end, all of a sudden they end up spending a minute, minute and a half in our end instead of making a simple play and move the play out to the neutral zone, Red Wings captain Henrik Zetterberg said.Backlund broke a 2-all tie when he slammed Michael Froliks pass from the left circle past Howard and into the open side of the net for his second goal.We better pick ourselves up and we better come to work tomorrow to get better, Detroit coach Jeff Blashill said. And we better put the work in that it takes to earn confidence come Wednesday (at Buffalo). Thats the bottom line. We better pick ourselves up in a hurry and focus on coming to win a hockey game on Wednesday.Mantha tied it 2-all 7:59 into the third with his first of the season. He put a snap shot under the crossbar on the short side after bringing the puck out from behind the net.Stajan gave the Flames a 2-1 lead at 2:31 of the third with his first goal of the season.

Hathaway, who was beside the net and battling with a Red Wings player, got the shaft of his stick on a high shot by Hamilton from the top of the right circle and deflected it into the empty side of the net.Thats an amazing feeling. I saw Fer (Micheal Ferland) get the puck to Dougie, so I went to the net, Hathaway said. It was an odd play, because Howard was still flailing around, so I wasnt sure if he had the puck or if it had gone in. Ill probably tell people that I sniped it -- that sounds a lot better. Weve still got five more road games, so it is big to get this one and get some momentum.Tatar gave Detroit a 1-0 lead 8:06 into the game. He blindly slid a puck toward the net from the high slot that beat Johnson. It was Tatars third goal and only his second in 14 games.Howard was forced to make a couple of saves in close after Red Wings giveaways deep in their zone.Detroit defenseman Alexey Marchenko left with an upper-body injury after taking a hit from Ferland with a little less than 5:30 left in the second period. Blashill said Marchenko will likely be out a little while and the team would have more information Monday.Game notes Detroit LW Thomas Vanek returned after missing 11 games with a hip injury.
