CALGARY -- For a guy that has spent the majority of the season split between the ECHL and AHL, Winnipeg goaltender Michael Hutchinson sure looked like an NHL goaltender on Friday night. Michael Brantley Indians Jersey . Paul Postma scored the game-winning goal and Hutchinson made 35 saves, including 18 in a perfect third period, as the Jets hung on for a 5-3 win over the Calgary Flames. "Especially with where I started at the start of the year, I didnt think it would be possible to be in the NHL," said Hutchinson, who played Winnipegs final three games compiling a 2-1-0 record, 1.64 goals-against average and .943 save percentage. Postma broke a 3-3 tie at 9:16 of the third, ripping a slapshot past Karri Ramo from the blue-line. "There was a lot of traffic in front of the net and I just wanted to get it through. I took a shot, kept it low and it found a way into the back of the net," said Postma. It then fell upon Hutchinson to preserve the lead as the Flames feverishly buzzed around the Jets end, outshooting the visitors 14-1 before Blake Wheeler put the game away with an empty net goal. "I definitely had a lot of work in the third period but at the same time, our guys played hard in front and blocked a lot of shots," said the 24-year-old. "When your guys are working that hard in front of you, it gives you that added incentive to bear down and make those saves." One of Hutchinsons biggest stops came with four minutes left when he threw out his glove to stab a shot from Kenny Agostino, who had been sent in alone. "Hutch played so well for us these last three games. Hes got a bright future ahead of him and were looking forward to playing with him," Postma said. Michael Frolik, Evander Kane and Carl Klingberg also scored for Winnipeg (37-35-10). It was the final game of the season for the Jets. Going back to its days in Atlanta, the franchise has missed the playoffs the past seven years. Jiri Hudler, Sean Monahan and Kris Russell scored for Calgary (35-39-7), which had its four-game winning streak snapped. "We didnt get the start that we wanted but by the middle of the second period after those two power-play goals, it seemed like the momentum shifted and we had a great third period," said Flames coach Bob Hartley. "We missed a few chances, we hit some posts. The boys were on a mission, they wanted that win for the fans but unfortunately we couldnt get it done." It was Calgarys final game at the Scotiabank Saddledome, where they finish up 19-19-3. After the game as the players saluted the fans with a wave of their sticks at centre ice, the appreciative crowd rose to their feet in a thundering ovation. "It was cool that everyone stayed in the building. Its been great all year. The support has been unbelievable," said Flames captain Mark Giordano. Testament to how hard Calgary has played is its 49 one-goal games (25-18-7), which ties the NHL record set by Florida in 2010-11. "Weve really tried to establish a work ethic and an identity of being one of the hardest-working teams in the league," said veteran Flames centre Matt Stajan. "Its exciting for everybody and Im glad the fans see that. But we know we have a lot of work ahead of us. No one is satisfied in here. We have to find a way to get at least 15 more points next year and get into the playoff picture." Hartley is proud of how his team has played and says the fans are too. "Its mutual respect. Its a great story between this team and the fans. We are all part of a great community and you can feel that pride," Hartley said. "Its on me to keep that pride and keep that progression going. Despite the loss tonight I am really happy how we turned our season, especially at home. Thats where success starts." Down 3-1 halfway through the second, the Flames got a great chance to get back in the game when they got a two-man advantage for 1:31. Mark Stuart put the Jets down two men when he caught Hudler in the face with a high stick. Although just 1-for-9 with a two-man advantage coming into the game, this time Calgary took full advantage when Monahan scored at 11:46 and Russell tied it 24 seconds later. Monahans 22nd goal is the most by a Flames rookie in 24 years, dating back to 1989-90 when Paul Ranheim had 26 and Sergei Makarov had 24. After Hudlers goal reduced the Jets lead to 2-1, Winnipeg restored its two-goal cushion at 8:48 when Klingberg curled out from behind the net and wrapped in his first NHL goal. The Jets scored twice in the first. Frolik on a deflection off of Flames defenceman TJ Brodie at 7:23 then Kane at 16:10 when he ripped a wrist shot into the top corner. "I never ever put a lot of stock into the last games when youre out, except if they quit on each other, if they just say Its fine," said Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice. "They didnt quit and there was nothing on the line." Ramo had 22 stops to see his record fall to 17-14-4. Notes: Rookie Jets D Jacob Trouba left the game halfway through the first period after a shot from Paul Byron hit his own stick blade and struck him in the face. He did not return... Calgary C Mike Cammalleri (virus) did not play... Maurice finishes the year 18-12-5 after taking over as Winnipegs head coach on Jan. 12... Flames signed Hobey Baker winner Johnny Gaudreau and his Boston College linemate Bill Arnold. Both will join the team for practice Saturday in Vancouver and will be in the line-up against the Canucks on Sunday. Joe Carter Indians Jersey .

Custom Cleveland Indians Jerseys .com) - Darius Carter and Ron Baker scored 18 points apiece to help 13th-ranked Wichita State beat Evansville 61-41 on Saturday. http://www.baseballindiansmlb.com/authentic-austin-jackson-indians-jersey/ .

Istomin fired 10 aces and won 6-7 (5), 6-3, 6-2 to even his career record against Nieminen at 3-3.Maui, HI (SportsNetwork.com) - Two undefeated nationally-ranked teams will square off in the Maui Invitational championship game on Wednesday night, as the second-ranked Arizona Wildcats and the 15th-ranked San Diego State Aztecs do battle at the Lahaina Civic Center. Arizona advanced to the semifinals following an easy first-round victory over Missouri, 72-53. The Wildcats had a much more difficult time with Kansas State on Tuesday but held on for a 72-68 victory to move to 5-0 on the campaign. SDSU were put to the test in its first-round matchup with BYU, as it needed two overtime periods to claim a 92-87 victory. Things came much easier for the Aztecs in the semifinals, however, as they dismissed Pittsburgh, 74-57, to improve to 5-0 on the season. These programs met in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament last March, with Arizona coming out on top, 70-64, to extend its lead in the all-time series to 23-7. After battling through five ties and 12 lead changes in its semifinal-round bout, the Wildcats took what seemed to be comfortable nine-point advantage midway through the second half only for Kansas State to climb back to make it a one-possession game late, but the Wildcats knocked down 6-of-8 at the foul line over the final 22 seconds to hold on for the win. They shot an outstanding 53.3 percent from the field and were paced by Kaleb Tarczewskis 18 points on 7-of-9 from the field. Gabe York (15 points), Stanley Johnson (14) and Brandon Ashley (10) also scored in double fiigures, while T. Abraham Almonte Indians Jersey. J. McConnell handed out eight assists. The triumph was the first close victory of the season for Arizona, which boasts a +16.2 scoring margin through five games while outshooting its opponents from the field, 50 percent to 39.8 percent. Ashley leads the way with 14.0 ppg, while Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (13.8 ppg) comes off the bench to shoot 66.7 percent from the floor. Johnson brings 12.6 ppg to the table and McConnell fills the stat sheet on a regular basis with 7.6 ppg, 5.2 rpg, 6.8 apg and 3.4 spg. The Aztecs took a convincing 39-25 lead into intermission of their semifinal- round contest and never broke a sweat in the second half en route to the 17- point victory. They shot a red-hot 58.7 percent from the field despite making just 3-of-11 from 3-point range, and they forced 17 Pitt turnovers while committing just nine miscues themselves. Trey Kell paced the winning effort with 15 points, doing so on 7-of-9 from the field. Winston Shepard and Angelo Chol chipped in with 13 and 10 points, respectively. The strong shooting performance was a great sign for San Diego State, which came into the semifinals shooting less than 39.5 percent from the field on the season for a modest 68.8 ppg. Its outstanding defense, however, has been well- established (55.2 ppg). Winston Shepard is the leading scorer with 11.4 ppg, while Ageel Quinn (10.8 ppg) is right on his heels. J.J. OBrien is a mainstay in the frontcourt with 10.2 ppg and 6.6 rpg.
