As Canada basks in a second consecutive gold medal in mens hockey at the Olympic Games, one question remains to be asked; who will be remembered as the teams most valuable player? Perhaps the most obvious choice is goaltender Carey Price, who allowed just three goals against in five games and posted consecutive shutouts in the semifinal and gold medal games. Michael Jordan Jersey Nike . Price also posted the longest shutout sequence since 1960 at 164:19 minutes. He stopped a combined 55 shots in Canadas final two games and 70 of 71 shots in Canadas three elimination games, allowing only a breakaway goal to Lauris Darzins of Latvia. For his efforts, Price was named best goalkeeper by the tournament directorate. Prices outstanding play is marred only by the extremely strong defensive play of Canadas top six defencemen; Shea Weber, Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, Marc-Edouard Vlasic, Alex Pietrangelo and Jay Bouwmeester. Weber and Doughty, considering their play on defence and offence could also be deserving of the teams MVP. Doughty, playing in his second career Olympics, scored four goals in the tournament for Canada, including the teams only two goals in their overtime win over Finland in the preliminary round. In total, Doughty notched six points in six games, tied for the team lead with Weber. Doughty was also the only Canadian named to the tournament all-star team by the media at Sochi 2014. Weber, who scored twice for Canada at Vancouver 2010, scored three goals at Sochi 2014. His biggest goal came in the form of a game-winner in the third period of Canadas quarter-final match against Latvia. Weber also notched the most ice-time of any player on Team Canada, totalling 131 minutes. Doughty was third on the team with 115:05 minutes logged. A major storyline for the Canadian team at Sochi was their inability to generate scoring from their forwards. Of Canadas 17 goals, seven goals came from Doughty and Weber, while Jamie Benn and Jeff Carter were the only forwards to score multiple goals for the team. Carter scored a hat-trick in Canadas 6-0 rout of Austria and led all Canadian forwards with five points. Benn scored in the teams opening game against Norway and scored the lone goal in Canadas 1-0 win over the United States in the semifinals. With the lack of offence generated by forwards and the impact made by two of Canadas defensive superstars, very few players have strong statistic cases for the teams MVP. Captain Sidney Crosby and alternate captain Jonathan Toews both scored in Canadas 3-0 gold medal victory over Sweden and led all forwards with 98:42 and 103:51 minutes, respectively. However, both players totalled just three points in Canadas six games. Given each players impact, who do you believe was Team Canadas most valuable player at Sochi 2014? As always, its Your! Call.

BELEK, Turkey -- Tiger Woods shot a 9-under 63 Friday to trim a six-shot deficit to one after the second round of the Turkish Open. Yeezy 700 Outlet . Woods completed seven holes of his rain-delayed first round for a 70 on Friday morning. After an hour lunch break, the 14-time major winner didnt drop a shot and had nine birdies in the second round. It left Woods in fifth place on 11 under, just a shot behind the leading foursome of Swedens Henrik Stenson (68), Englands Ian Poulter (66), Frenchman Victor Dubuisson (65) and South African Justin Walters (66). "I played a little better certainly this afternoon and made some putts, so that was fine," Wood said. "It was a round that could have been really special. But I am right there, and I am only one back." Woods, who last won on the European Tour at the co-sanctioned 2009 Australian Masters, said he missed four or five putts within 10 feet for birdie. "Its a bunched leaderboard, so we are going to have to continue to go low over the weekend given the way the golf course is playing and how soft it is," he said. "It is so receptive and slow and it lends itself to a lot of birdies." Woods revealed he had been awake since around 3:30 a.m. local time watching TV coverage of his alma mater Stanford beating Oregon 26-20. The game went on so long that Woods became worried about getting in some practice at Maxx Royal before his 8 a.m. restart. "Unfortunately, I had to stay longer watching the game than I wanted to," he said. "It was one of those games where it looked like we (Stanford) were going up 29-7. But the next thing you know, Oregon comes back at us. "Im thinking I have to go warm up for this tournament. So Im saying, come on guys, cant you just run the clock out and they finally did." Stenson, the European Tour money leader, had nine straight pars before picking up four birdies over his last nine.
