Gerard Gallant made Shea Theodore skip a shift. He’s not making him walk the plank for two rough games.

Theodore’s struggles are a major reason the Golden Knights trail the Capitals 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Final going into Game 4 on Monday night in Washington. The talented www.dallascowboysteamonline.com , young defenseman has been on the ice for four of the Capitals’ past six goals in the series and was primarily responsible for two in Vegas’ Game 3 loss Saturday night.

”Did Shea do something real bad? He plays the game like everybody else,” Gallant said Sunday in a passionate defense of Theodore. ”He made a couple mistakes, they ended up in the back of our net. A lot of guys make mistakes in hockey games and they don’t end up in the back of the net. Shea’s a 22-year-old kid who I love. He’s a great player. He’s going to be a star in this league.”

Theodore doesn’t need to be a star, but he needs to be better for the Golden Knights to have a realistic chance of coming back in the Cup Final. In Game 3 alone, he made an ill-advised decision that sparked an odd-man rush on Evgeny Kuznetsov’s goal, and committed a brutal turnover that led to Devante Smith-Pelly’s goal that sealed it for Washington.

Trailing by two in the third period, Gallant sat the offensively gifted Theodore for more than three minutes after that giveaway. Gallant expects his whole team to be better with the puck Ryan Miller Jersey , and Theodore knows that certainly includes him.

”Personally, not a good game,” Theodore said. ”I’ve got to be better all over the ice and definitely recharge tomorrow and get back at it. You have to have a short memory on these type of things, and it’s a seven-game series.”

The series won’t get to seven games if Theodore’s mistakes continue to haunt the Golden Knights. In addition to the blunders that cost them two goals, arguably Theodore’s worst play Saturday night came when he lollygagged down the ice on the power play and got outraced by Capitals defenseman Matt Niskanen so badly goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury had to come out of his net and wound up taking a tripping penalty.

That cost Vegas a big opportunity to score on the power play and cut the deficit in half.

”We all make mistakes,” Fleury said in French. ”He must forget it.”

That’s the message from veteran defense partner Deryk Engelland, who teammates notice has been a calming and positive influence on Theodore. Engelland talked to Theodore after the loss and again the morning after to reassure him and reinforce some positive thinking.

”He’s young Tuukka Rask Jersey , you’re going to have mistakes,” Engelland said ”It’s a new day. We’ve got to get ready for Game 4 and you’ve just got to tell him to simplify, make the simple, easy play that he’s done all year for us, and just get back to our games.”

Teammates have been just as quick as Gallant to praise Theodore for his strong play this season, and there’s no doubt he’s a factor in the expansion team getting this far. But at the most critical stage of the Golden Knights’ journey, he has been close to his worst and knows it.

”I just have to be much better than I was Youth Christian Djoos Jersey ,” Theodore said.



More Stanley Cup coverage: George Andrie, the former Dallas Cowboys defensive end who scored a touchdown in the Ice Bowl game against Green Bay in 1967, has died. He was 78.

The Cowboys confirmed the death of Andrie. He died Tuesday at his home in Woodway, Texas. Andrie's family has said he suffered from dementia.

Andrie was among the former players who sued the NFL over claims that the league knew repeated head blows could lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a degenerative brain disease. Experts have linked CTE to dementia, among other conditions.

Andrie was part of the "Doomsday Defense" that included Hall of Famer Bob Lilly and fellow starters Willie Townes and Jethro Pugh. He led the Cowboys in sacks four straight seasons from 1964-67 and was an All-Pro in 1969. That was the last of five straight Pro Bowls, a record for a Dallas defensive end.

The temperature was 15 below in Green Bay when the Packers and Cowboys played for a spot in the second Super Bowl. Andrie picked up a fumble by Bart Starr and ran 7 yards for a touchdown with Green Bay leading 14-0. The Packers won 21-17 on Starr's quarterback sneak in the final seconds.

Andrie moved back to his native Michigan after his playing days but returned to Texas Authentic Benoit Pouliot Jersey , where he co-owned a beer distributorship with Lilly in Waco. Andrie played at Marquette, which dropped football before his final season. He was a sixth-round pick by Dallas in 1962.
