Realignment and the Olympic break made for some challenges with the 2013-14 NHL schedule that was released Friday. There are four divisions instead of six, complete with new names and a different balance of games, and time off from Feb. 9-26 to let players go to Sochi, Russia, for the 2014 Winter Olympics. "We wanted to make the schedule as normal as it could be," deputy commissioner Bill Daly said on Sirius XM NHL Network Radio. "With 17 days in the middle ... thats sometimes tough to do." The season begins with the Montreal Canadiens hosting the Toronto Maple Leafs Oct. 1. Later that night the Chicago Blackhawks raise their Stanley Cup champions banner against the Washington Capitals, and the Winnipeg Jets visit the Edmonton Oilers. It marks the first time since 2008 that the defending champion will open the regular season against a team out of its conference. The Detroit Red Wings raised their banner that year against the Maple Leafs. The Calgary Flames open Oct. 3 at the Capitals, the Vancouver Canucks Oct. 3 at the San Jose Sharks and the Ottawa Senators Oct. 4 at the Buffalo Sabres. Vancouver at San Jose and Ottawa at Buffalo are division-rivalry games within the NHLs new alignment that includes the Metropolitan, Atlantic, Central and Pacific Divisions. The Eastern Conference has 16 teams and the West 14, leading to some imbalance in how the schedule is put together. The Metropolitan is made up of the Capitals, Pittsburgh Penguins, Philadelphia Flyers, New Jersey Devils, New York Rangers, New York Islanders, Carolina Hurricanes and Columbus Blue Jackets. The Atlantic has the Maple Leafs, Canadiens, Senators, Sabres, Red Wings, Boston Bruins, Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning. The Central has the Jets, Blackhawks, Colorado Avalanche, Dallas Stars, Minnesota Wild, Nashville Predators and St. Louis Blues. The Pacific has the Canucks, Flames, Oilers, Sharks, Los Angeles Kings, Phoenix Coyotes and Anaheim Ducks. Daly said much debate went into naming the divisions, including consultation with teams. Penguins captain Sidney Crosby learned about the Metropolitan Division moniker on a conference call with reporters Friday. "I dont know what to think," Crosby said. "I like the Atlantic, Im from Atlantic Canada. It kind of had a good feel to it, but I can deal with Metropolitan Division. Its going to take some time to get used to, but I can live with that." Players will also have to live with some more back-to-back games because the Olympic break compacts the schedule. "You find out pretty quickly that an Olympic-year schedule is a little more condensed and a little more intense than a typical year," Crosby said. "You have to take advantage of your days off because it is condensed." Daly called it a "fairly normal schedule with fairly normal density." But another challenge exists for those going to Sochi, where Crosby said "every game is like a Game 7." "Then obviously coming back from that, too, you basically go from being at that level of intensity to regular-season games," he said. "Regular-season games are always easy to get up for, but theres definitely a period of time where you come back and youve played those intense games, youve got to find a way to keep going and maintain that same level through the rest of the season and hopefully the playoffs." Former Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson will make his return to Ottawa on Dec. 1 when the Red Wings visit the renamed Canadian Tire Centre. As previously announced, the Maple Leafs and Red Wings will play the Winter Classic Jan. 1 at Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor. Four other outdoor games will take place as part of the NHLs Stadium Series. And the Heritage Classic returns, as Vancouver hosts Ottawa at B.C Place on March 2. The regular season concludes Sunday, April 13. The playoffs begin Wednesday, April 16. Brett Favre Jersey . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. Clay Matthews Jersey . White came in fourth place in the event. He was the two-time defending gold medallist. The gold medal went to Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov. http://www.packersfansproshop.com/Packers+Jamaal+Williams+Rush+Jersey.html?cat=1319 . Coach Tom Thibodeau says the former MVP will probably start travelling with the team in the next few weeks. Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season by the Bulls. Jordy Nelson Jersey . The Australian is competing in his final season in Formula One and still looking for his first win this year. He will look to end Vettels run of six straight race wins on Sunday. Webber, who is fifth in the championship, earned his second pole from the past three races and 13th of his career. David Bakhtiari Jersey . It was just business as usual for the Thunder at home. Durant scored 32 points and the Thunder beat the Bulls 107-95 on Thursday night for their eighth straight win. WASHINGTON -- Bryce Harper yelled at umpire Mike Winters and threw his helmet to the ground, leading to his ejection from the Washington Nationals 9-4 loss to the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.Harper erupted after a called third strike from Winters in the 10th inning. Harper insisted a 95 mph fastball from Jake McGee (1-3) was beyond the outside corner.It was off the plate, Harper said. I could possibly see one more pitch and maybe hit a homer or a double or walk -- I could even strike out. But I just wanted to see that last pitch, and I never got there.It just shouldnt happen. Just bad behind there. Its not a strike.Harper immediately turned and screamed at Winters, and the plate umpire calmly ejected him. Harper was replaced by Chris Heisey, and the Nationals lost in 11 innings after the Rockies scored five runs off Yusmeiro Petit (3-4).You dont ever want to get ejected, but you dont want an umpire to make a mistake in that big of a situation, Harper said. Thats just not good. I wanted to see that last pitch. We could have possibly not played the 11th or the 12th or whatever.Manager Dusty Baker said Harpers frustration mounted over time, and he wasnt just frustrated with Winters.Everybody blows up from time to time, Baker said. These things happen this time of year when tempers are short. Its hot, youve played a lot of games, youve been around the same people for a long period of time and this is the time of the year when tempers do flare up.Before Harper got tossed, the Nationals were on the wrong side of an intentional-walk wild pitch. Starter A.J. Cole threw the ball away while trying to walk Daniel Descalso in the fourth, which allowed Nolan Arenado to scoore.ddddddddddddI havent seen an intentional walk go awry in a long time, Baker said. They were just going to say, `Take your base intentionally, but thats a reason you know for it not to.Cole allowed three runs on four hits in 5 2/3 innings. Recently acquired reliever Marc Rzepczynski allowed one run -- unearned because of his own throwing error -- in 2 1/3 innings, his longest outing since the 2011 NLCS.RAMOS SLUMPWith his RBI single in the fourth, Nationals catcher Wilson Ramos snapped a 1-for-23 slump. Ramos is the National Leagues best hitting catcher this season with a .312 average.OTTAVINO OVERRockies closer Adam Ottavinos streak of not allowing a run ended at 31 1/3 innings on Jayson Werths RBI single that tied the score in the ninth. Dating to Sept. 6, 2014, it was the longest active streak in the majors.Its disappointing, obviously, when he got the hit, but the games over if the next guy gets a hit, said Ottavino, who got Murphy to ground out to send the game to extra innings. Im happy I got that guy out so we were able to do what we did and win the game.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: Weiss said RHP Tyler Chatwood (mid-back strain) will go on a rehab assignment with details still to be determined.Nationals: RHP Joe Ross, who has been out since early July with shoulder inflammation, will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse on Sunday.UP NEXTRHP Chad Bettis (10-7, 5.29 ERA) starts for the second time in 12 days against the Nationals, who will call up RHP Lucas Giolito (0-0, 4.91) to make his fourth career major league start.
