Darren Helm scored on Detroits sixth attempt in the shootout and then Jonas Gustavsson stopped Andrew Shaws shot, lifting the Detroit Red Wings to a 5-4 win over the Chicago Blackhawks on Wednesday night. Anthony Santander Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone has drawn on his Syracuse connections once again by hiring Rob Moore to take over as receivers coach. http://www.theoriolesteamshop.com/Orioles-Caleb-Joseph-Kids-Jersey/ . Then the Pacers gave Oladipo and his Orlando teammates the cold shoulder. Paul Georges buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the third quarter spurred a 21-4 run, finally sending Indiana past the Magic 97-87 in a tougher-than-expected opening night matchup. Sunday will mark plenty of firsts for the WWE, from its first Raw-exclusive pay-per-view since the July brand split to the first time its new Universal championship will be defended. Clash of Champions will also be the promotions first pay-per-view event to carry that name (not to be confused with WCWs Clash of the Champions that ran annually from 1988 to 1997).The most important first comes in the main event when Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins face off for the first time in a singles match since they met in Ring of Honor in 2010. It will be the first time their burgeoning feud will be given the proper attention since Owens captured the Universal title on August 29, triggering a chaotic -- yet unrewarding -- few weeks of Raw.Lets take a closer look at whats at stake in each of the matchups heading into Sunday.WWE Universal championship: Kevin Owens (c) vs. Seth RollinsTheres excellent potential in this one, not just for a four-star match on Sunday but also for an incredibly compelling feud to break out in the weeks and months to follow. Both superstars can do it all and there remains plenty of storyline animosity between them based upon the circumstances in which Owens became champion three weeks ago.After Finn Balor defeated Rollins at SummerSlam to win the inaugural title, a serious shoulder injury forced him to give up the belt on Raw the next night. One week later, Owens captured the vacant title in a Fatal 4-Way, after Triple H emerged from the crowd to assist him by delivering a Pedigree to Rollins and Roman Reigns.But Raw has largely shifted away from a specific focus on Owens and Rollins, with Reigns -- and the possibility of adding him to Sundays main event -- becoming the shows focal point. As a result, the anticipation for Owens-Rollins has taken an unjust hit, despite the potential for magic between them.The big question mark surrounding this match is whether Triple H will re-emerge back into the storyline. The disappearance of The Game from Raw has been a puzzling one, considering the hand he played in lifting Owens to the brands biggest crown. He has yet to return to provide an on-screen comment regarding his motives, which has created a gaping hole in the overall story.The seeds for an eventual Rollins-Triple H payoff have been planted going back to 2015, when Rollins held the WWE championship until his knee injury last November. It will be interesting to see whether Triple H shows up on Sunday to have a hand in the result and add more sympathy fuel to Rollins turn to a fan favorite.WWE United States championship: Rusev (c) vs. Roman ReignsThe participants of this feud have received more airtime and placement on Raw than anyone else over the past month and a half. But the majority of it has been gratuitous, as Reigns polarizing popularity has prevented WWE from keeping him too far away from its brightest spotlight.The majority of their rivalry has centered upon run-ins to each others matches, often with Rusev costing Reigns a victory. They also fought to a messy no-contest in a largely forgettable brawl at SummerSlam.The good news is that they work well together in the ring and retain plenty of potential to tell a compelling story. Should Reigns pick up the strap in this one, it would do nothing but elevate the title in the same manner in which John Cena did so in 2015.But putting the title on Reigns would also conceivably keep him out of the Universal title picture for an extended period, something WWE doesnt appear willing to do by the looks of Raw over the past two months. Because of that, a non-clean finish -- likely involving Lana -- could be in order.WWE Raw womens championship: Charlotte (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley in triple threat matchThe storyline involving this trio has arguably been the best-handled of any other on Raw since SummerSlam, with Bayley proving incredibly popular with fans since her call-up to the main roster. Her late addition into Sundays title bout also adds interesting wrinkles to the overall rivalry between Charlotte and Banks.Its still difficult to imagine an outcome in which Charlootte, the undisputed face of the WWEs womens division, doesnt walk away with her title (shes 11-0 in pay-per-view title matches). Roberto Alomar Jersey. But the potential for a further strain in the friendship between Bayley and Banks remains strong and has been properly teased.Considering the level of matches these three have put on against each other in NXT, this triple threat could very much steal the show on Sunday. WWE also has plenty of storyline options to spin off from, including the eventual comeuppance owed Dana Brooke for the abuse she has taken as Charlottes sidekick.WWE Raw tag team championship: The New Day (c) vs. Luke Gallows and Karl AndersonThe New Days current title reign will reach 399 days entering this match and is already the second longest for a tag team in company history behind Demolition (478 days). Unless WWE has specific plans to see that record broken, theres no better time than now to see them drop the belts.Gallows and Anderson have been given a more vicious and believable push since the brand split saw them separated from The Club stablemate A.J. Styles. But their feud with The New Day, which showed tremendous potential when it launched in late July, has been saddled by too much forced comedy. From Jon Stewarts involvement at SummerSlam to their lets pretend this never happened Raw segment two weeks later, its been a rough recent stretch trying to build the intensity around this match.Outside of their comedic missteps, not much has actually happened between the two teams since Gallows and Anderson injured Big E in August. The best way to inject more life into the feud would not only be a title change, but the injection of some internal dissention among The New Day members after the defeat.Best-of-seven series finale: Cesaro vs. SheamusWith blame falling more on the lack of creative wrinkles surrounding this series than the actual in-ring product, this one has failed to create any form of buzz entering Sunday.Cesaro rallying back from a 3-0 deficit to force a seventh match proved entirely predictable and the generic prize of a future world title shot for the winner has done little to raise the stakes. Lets hope the two combatants -- both more than capable performers - save their best for last.WWE cruiserweight championship: T.J. Perkins (c) vs. Brian KendrickWhile Raws launch of its much-hyped cruiserweight division Monday failed to create the exact same magic seen on the WWE Networks exceptional Cruiserweight Classic series, there are plenty of reasons to be excited about Sundays title match.Perkins has the look and style to become a main roster star. Meanwhile, Kendricks real-life redemption angle -- returning to the company at age 37 after a seven-year break -- adds an interesting wrinkle to the storyline.Provided they are given the time to shine Sunday like they did in the CWC (and not used simply as Raws shiny new toy), Perkins-Kendrick has all the makings to be a memorable match.Sami Zayn vs. Chris JerichoDont let the lack of time that has been given to this feud on Raw rob from its overall potential for a strong match on Sunday.Both Jericho and Zayn are incredible in the ring and their recent Highlight Reel segment was one of Raws top moments in recent weeks. As far as throwaway, stay-busy feuds are concerned, you cant do much better than this on paper.Pre-show kickoff match: Alicia Fox vs. Nia JaxCount me as interested in seeing how Jax performs in her first feud after a series of recent squash matches. The buildup to this one has been strong, mostly for the incredible level of physicality shown for the womens division, complete with Jax spearing Fox through the barricade wall outside the ring.Jax has the opportunity to become a unique attraction for Raw, and the womens division in general. How quickly she gets pushed up the card will likely depend on how well she can adapt to longer matches and more in-depth storytelling.Consider this one a litmus test to where shes at. Wholesale Jerseys From China China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China China NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL GearDiscount NFL Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback Wholesale Jerseys From China Discount NFL Jerseys Jerseys NFL Cheap ' ' '
