CALGARY, Alberta -- While Brian Elliott has newfound confidence in net for the Calgary Flames, the Ottawa Senators will be without their starting goaltender for the foreseeable future.After backstopping the Flames (3-4-1) to back-to-back road wins over the Chicago Blackhawks and St. Louis Blues on Monday and Tuesday, Elliott will attempt to keep his momentum going against the Senators (4-2-0) at the Scotiabank Saddledome on Friday.Elliott, who the Flames acquired from the Blues on June 24 in exchange for a second-round draft pick (35th overall) in 2018 and a conditional third-rounder, started his tenure with the Flames with three straight losses before bouncing back to stop 54 of 57 shots he faced during Calgarys two wins earlier this week.I dont think Ive felt bad the other ones too, said Elliott. I just think we kind of beat ourselves the first few games. Now were getting the picture of how we need to play each and every night. We played good road-style hockey and if we can bring that kind of hockey at home well be successful as well.Meanwhile, the Senators announced on Thursday that goalie Craig Anderson has taken a leave of absence and that theres no timetable for his return.With the support of the entire organization, weve provided Craig with a leave of absence so that he can attend to a personal matter at home, said Senators general manager Pierre Dorion in a statement. While we are uncertain of how long Craig may be away, he will continue to have our support for as much time as is needed. We will respect his privacy and will have no further comment at this time.Anderson improved his record this season to 4-1-0 after making 22 saves to backstop the Senators to a 3-0 road win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday. The 35-year-old veteran has also compiled a 2.95 goals against average to go with a .903 save percentage.In his absence, the Senators will go with the goaltending tandem of Andrew Hammond and Chris Driedger, who was called up from the AHLs Binghamton Senators.Hammond, 28, will get the start on Friday and is hoping to bounce back from his only previous appearance of the season, a 5-1 road loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Oct. 17 in which he stopped 20 of 25 shots he faced.After going 20-1-2 in his rookie campaign with the Sens in 2014-15, Hammond went 7-11-1 last season and even spent a stint in the AHL in Binghamton where he had no wins to go with two losses.In just 55 minutes of NHL action over the past two seasons, Driedger has made 21 saves without allowing a goal. The 22-year-old netminder, who starred for the WHLs Calgary Hitmen for three seasons from 2011-14, has never started or been the goaltender of record in an NHL game.While Elliott played a starring role against his former team on Tuesday in St. Louis, Flames right winger Alex Chiasson told that hes looking forward to going up against his old squad at the Saddledome on Friday.Its always a little special playing previous teams, said Chiasson, who Calgary acquired from Ottawa in exchange for defenseman Patrick Sieloff on June 27. I have a good amount of friends on that team, but when the game starts its a game day just like any other day. Thats part of pro hockey, really.After starting the season on Calgarys fourth line, Chiasson has been elevated to play alongside center Sean Monahan and left winger Johnny Gaudreau.I know that itd be nice to be on the scoresheet a little more, but at the same time its a process of trying to stay focused mentally on that, do the good things and the rest of the stuff is going to come, said Chiasson, who has just one goal to show for his efforts through eight games with the Flames. If I keep playing with those two guys, I think I can bring an element to that line that they dont have, and they can just play. Vapormax Laceless Black Night . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. Air Force 1 07 Low . -- Its been a long road back for Sean Bergenheim. .J. Jefferson has been charged with assaulting his girlfriend. Air Force 1 Low Black . -- Ohio States Urban Meyer has never had any issue acclimating to the biggest stages in college football. Air Force 1 Low White . With the short-handed Warriors needing help from someone -- anyone -- to stop a three-game skid, ONeal returned from right knee and groin injuries that had sidelined him for four games and put up season highs with 18 points and eight rebounds. It was just enough to help lift Golden State to a 102-101 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday night. Hes been plagued by foot injuries over the past two seasons and didnt get the opportunity to step onto the court until two years after being drafted. But Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid is finally healthy and is playing at a historic level in his first?seven games.The 2014 third-overall draftee?is on a minutes restriction and doesnt play in games in which?the Sixers are on a back-to-back. Hes averaging just 22.1 minutes per contest.But per 36 minutes, Embiids name is currently among some of the NBA greats.Embiid is averaging 29.3 points per 36 minutes,?the most in league?history among those who have played a minimum of 100 minutes. Travis Grant, who is ?the all-time leading scorer in NCAA history from Kentucky State, is second on that list at 29.0 points per 36 minutes, Michael Jordan is third at 28.3 points, and George Gervin is fourth at 28.2 points.While Embiid didnt enter the league as a 3-point threat, the former Kansas Jayhawk is knocking down 1.6 3s per 36 minutes. That?ties sharpshooters Steve Kerr, Steve Nash, Mark Price, Glen Rice, Joe Johnsonn, Kevin Love and Dan Majerle.dddddddddddd?Embiid is hitting his 3s at a 50 percent rate (7-of-14), which is first among any player on that list.Embiid has better stats per 36 minutes than some of the greatest centers in NBA history. Hes ahead of Shaquille ONeal, Hakeem Olajuwon, David Robinson and Patrick Ewing in points, rebounds and blocks per 36 minutes.The one downside to Embiids play early on has been his excessive amount of turnovers. While there are 250 players in the NBA who have played more minutes than Embiid, only 13 of them have more turnovers. Hes averaging 7.7 turnovers per 36 minutes,?three more than any player who has?played at least 2,000 minutes since individual turnovers became official in 1977-78.And no player in league history has finished a season with a usage rate of 40 percent or more, but Embiid is on his way to doing so. He trails only Oklahoma City Thunder point guard Russell Westbrook in that category.
