Thornton returns to lineup for Sharks in Game 3 vs. Oilers

It was a dominant performance by the Oilers and particularly by Kassian, a fourth-line winger who drove the net effectively and delivered bone-jarring hits on the Sharks' Brenden Dillon and Logan Couture. "Our power play in our second game mimicked our five-on-five play: we weren't hungry enough, we got outworked in a lot of areas".

Return leg against Bayern Munich is open: Cristiano Ronaldo

But I'm happy with the substitution and with Marco Asensio's performance". "We suffered here but all-in-all it's not easy to play here. If Neuer hadn't been on such a good night we would have scored more". With patience, and taking the ball from them, the second half was very good. The first came on a visit to Sporting with Manchester United in 2007, which was just his fourth European goal, with his second arriving in the 2014 final when he struck against Atletico Madrid in Benfica's ...

Mesut Ozil in no rush to resolve Arsenal future

But personally, I find it very hard to believe that the Arsenal board, infamous for penny-pinching, would be willing to offer a single player such a lucrative offer. "Always I'm tempted to say no but I was always wrong on that front".
