NEW YORK -- The New York Islanders will see an old friend Sunday night, when Matt Martin makes his first visit to Barclays Center as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs. As glad as the Islanders will be to see Martin, theyd be even happier if their old offense returns, too.The Islanders will look to snap out of a season-long goal-scoring funk when they host the Maple Leafs in the opener of a five-game homestand. New York (3-5-0) last played Thursday, when it fell 4-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins. Toronto (2-3-3) will be playing the second game of a back-to-back set after losing to the Montreal Canadiens 2-1 on Saturday night.All eyes, at least early on Sunday night, will be on Martin, who spent the first seven seasons of his NHL career with the Islanders before signing with the Maple Leafs as a free agent in July. Martin was wildly popular with Islanders fans and teammates for his feisty on-ice demeanor as well as his locker room leadership and off-ice involvement with the community.The Matt Martin Foundation raises funds for a variety of causes, including children with cystic fibrosis. Martins girlfriend, Sydney Esiason, has a brother with cystic fibrosis.Im sure itll be emotional for me, Martin told Newsday on Saturday. I matured as a player and a person on the Island. Itll always be special for me. Im trying to win a game, but as soon as its over, Ill be rooting for those guys.The Islanders surely feel the same way -- especially about the trying to win a game part. New York, which has lost two straight, has been tied in the third period in all five of its losses.The major problem for the Islanders has been a struggling forward corps. Defensemen have accounted for eight of the teams 22 goals. Center John Tavares (four goals) is the lone forward with more than two goals, and left winger Brock Nelson and right winger Ryan Strome (two goals each) are the only other ones with more than a single tally.Left winger Andrew Ladd, who was expected to become New Yorks No. 2 threat upon signing a seven-year deal in July, has yet to score a goal and was actually played on the fourth line last Wednesday against the Canadiens.Were just not getting offense from our forwards right now, Islanders head coach Jack Capuano told Newsday following Thursdays loss. Weve got to find a way to score goals if this team wants to win games. End of story.The Maple Leafs enter in a bit of an offensive funk themselves. Toronto, which was held to fewer than two goals for the first time this season on Saturday, has scored seven goals in its last three games after racking up 18 in the first five.The good thing about this game is that maybe tonight you feel sorry for yourself, but then youre right back at it (Sunday), Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly said. Weve got a big game against the Islanders that weve got to win. Weve got another chance to redeem ourselves, so thats a good feeling.Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said goalie Jhonas Enroth will make his second start of the season Sunday. Enroth will likely face Islanders no. 1 goalie Jaroslav Halak, who started Thursdays loss.Enroth is 2-4-0 in six games against the Islanders. He was a member of the Los Angeles Kings the last time he opposed New York on Feb. 11, when Enroth took the defeat after stopping 25 of 29 shots in the Kings 5-2 loss at Barclays Center.Halak is 8-3-3 in 15 games against the Maple Leafs. He earned the win the last time he opposed Toronto on Feb. 12, 2015, when Halak stopped 32 of the 34 shots he faced in the Islanders 3-2 victory at Nassau Coliseum. Cheap NFL Jerseys .

The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. PHILADELPHIA -- A week off left the Philadelphia Eagles rested and rusty.Disciplined, mistake-free football helped the Eagles start 3-0. Penalties and turnovers led to Philadelphias first loss.Maybe the bye came at the wrong time. The Eagles were on a roll following an impressive 34-3 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.Thats the concern when you have that much time off, coach Doug Pederson said. Youd love to continue to play, but it is what it is. We didnt make the schedule, we had a bye and we have two games on the road, and we just have to learn to take advantage of these situations and we just came up a little bit short.The Eagles (3-1) started slow at Detroit, falling behind 14-0 and 21-7. They rallied in the second half and had a 23-21 lead when Ryan Mathews lost a fumble on third-and-2. A first down wouldve sealed the win.It was Philadelphias first turnover this season and it allowed the Lions (2-3) to take a 24-23 lead on a field goal. Carson Wentz and the offense had time for a comeback, but the rookie quarterback inexplicably heaved a desperation pass on first down that resulted in his first interception.I was surprised he even threw that, said Darius Slay, who made the pick. I was in great position, so Im like, `OK. But then I looked in the air and I said, `Oh, the ball is coming for real. Hes really throwing this. Oh well, its time for his first career pick.The game wouldnt have come down to the end if the Eagles werent so sloppy. They committed 14 penalties, including some costly ones. Fletcher Cox was called for unnecessary roughness when he ripped Matthew Staffords helmet off in the second quarter. That negated a third-down sack and the Lions drove for a touchdown instead of trying a field goal.ddddddddddddTheres a lot of bad things that well see on tape that we cant do, as far as beating ourselves, shooting ourselves in the foot, losing contain, all those things that we can correct, safety Malcolm Jenkins said. But theres a lot of good things coming out of these types of games. Weve got a lot of confidence in the fact that if we play our style of football, we settle down, everybody does their job one play at a time, well usually give ourselves a good chance to win.The Eagles fell behind Dallas (4-1) in the NFC East standings with a tough game at Washington (3-2) coming up. The Redskins have won three straight after a 0-2 start, but theyre 1-2 at home.The schedule doesnt get easier after Washington. Minnesota (5-0) visits the Eagles on Oct. 23. Philadelphia then goes back on the road at the Cowboys and at the Giants.We just cant beat ourselves, receiver Jordan Matthews said. I think everybodys got to take a look in the mirror and just say, `OK, how are we going to come back and finish next game?Game notes DE Bryan Braman has a left shoulder AC sprain and CB Leodis McKelvin has a sore hamstring. Both are expected to miss practice Wednesday. ... Pederson said the recovery of Mathews fumble shouldve been reversed after a video review because Eagles center Jason Kelce touched the ball while out of bounds. Its a dead ball out of bounds. Thats the rule, Pederson said.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL---Follow Rob Maaddi on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AP-RobMaaddi Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
