I’ve been once and I live about 20 mins away from Pearson airport. Even then it was hard to get a flight. My buddy from Winnipeg came with me on that trip and he had to fly in the day before and join me on the flight the next day. If I recall Air Canada didn’t even have a flight in the 3 day frame we were looking to get there.  nas1787 Share on other sites Sports Logos #RIPIceCaps… 767 KittSmith_95 Members But I’m not 100% sure it was the city logo. 47 minutes ago, nas1787 said: Posted July 12, 2016 Yeah, it’s a shame. Toronto Maple Leafs’ farm team the St. John’s Maple Leafs were the longest lasting AHL team in the city, lasting from 1991/92 – 2004/05. But then again, the city has a real shallow history of hockey teams. Maybe time for another QMJHL team in the city? The Montreal Canadiens announced today that they’re relocating their AHL affiliate, the St. John’s IceCaps, to Laval, Quebec after next season (2017/18), and have launched a name the team campaign. chcarlson23 Share this post Link to post chcarlson23 Share this post I voted for Lynx because I love alliteration and Lynx is an underused name in sports.

LIVE: Russia U21 – Bulgaria U21, nightmarish start – BG Football…

first_imgThe youth national teams of Russia and Bulgaria play with a result 1:0 in a match of the qualifications for the European Championship next year. The Russians hit us in the first minute with a goal by Maxim Glushenkov.The Little Lions need at least a tie to stand a chance for second place, giving the right to a barrage. The match started a nightmare for the “lions”, who took on the role of catching up in the first minute of the match. It took only 28 seconds for Maxim Glushenkov to master the good pass of Konstantin Kuchaev, to overcome Angel Lyaskov and with an accurate shot on the ground to send the ball into the net of Daniel Naumov.Shortly afterwards came the first blow of ours. Tonislav Yordanov stood behind the ball in a free kick, but his attempt was inaccurate and flew away from the door of Matvey Safonov.In the 12th minute Ivan Ignatiev fired a powerful projectile at Naumov’s door, but the ball hit Petko Hristov’s body.In the 19th minute, the Russians could have doubled their lead after Glushenkov intercepted a cross and tried a shot, but fortunately, Daniel Naumov reflected the experience of the Russian.After a quarter of an hour, the Bulgarians organized a good attack, which ended with a strong shot by Valentin Antov to the door of Safonov, who, however, hit the right guard of Sbornaya.Russia U21 – Bulgaria U21 1: 0 1: 0 Maxim Glushenkov 1 ‘Compositions:RUSSIA U21: Matvey Safonov, Nikolay Raskazov, Igor Diveev, Roman Evgeniev, Danil Krugovoy, Konstantin Kuchaev, Ivan Ignatiev, Ivan Oblyakov (k), Maxim Glushenkov, Daniil Lisaviy, Nail UmyarovBreeder: Mikhail GalaktionovBULGARIA U21: Daniel Naumov (k), Andrea Hristov, Ertan Tombak, Angel Lyaskov, Valentin Antov, Ivaylo Naidenov, Iliya Yurukov, Tonislav Yordanov, Stanislav Ivanov, Petko Hristov, Kaloyan KrastevBreeder: Alexander DimitrovReferee: Arda Kardashler, TurkeyStadium: Arena Khimki, RussiaIn the other matches of our group, Latvia made the surprise and stole a point from Serbia, while Estonia and Poland play with a score of 0: 1.
