Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles, head coach Pete Carroll told reporters after Thursday night’s 22-16 win over the Cardinals.
Sherman left Thursday night’s game against the Cardinals in the third quarter after aggravating his troublesome right Achilles injury. Sherman went down clutching his right leg after making a play in the third quarter. He missed practice during the week due to the injury.
Toss-up: The defense has been triumphant, pitching three shutouts for just the second time in franchise history (it had four in 2000). But the offense is leaving a lot to be desired, ranking 31st in FPI’s efficiency rating. That makes the Ravens a perfect middle-of-the-road candidate.
Sergei Bobrovsky had 22 saves for Columbus in his third shutout this season and 22nd of his career. Mike Smith turned away 40 shots for Calgary.
It was the first time this season that either team ended regulation scoreless.
The Jackets outshot Calgary 2-1 for much of the game.
The Flames, however, dominated puck possession in the first 90 seconds of overtime before the Jackets pushed into the offensive zone.
Calgary’s T.J. Brodie sought to set up play from behind his own net, but the puck rolled off onto the stick of Nick Foligno, who sent it to Anderson for the game-winner.
Johnny Gaudreau’s 10-game point streak ended for the Flames.
