Harry Kane can revitalise Tottenhams Champions League campaign, says Hugo Lloris, but Mauricio Pochettino may not risk the striker. Spencer Ware Jersey . Pochettino insists Spurs Champions League tie against Monaco on Tuesday is the clubs priority, despite his side facing Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday, but he will set fitness limits on his selection. Spurs trail Monaco by four points and second-placed Bayer Leverkusen by two in Group E following successive home defeats at Wembley, and realistically must win if they are to avoid an early exit.  Its clear that tomorrow is the most important game, Pochettino said. Our selection for tomorrow will be if the players that are fit or not, that can play 90 minutes or not. Dele Alli also faces a late fitness test ahead of the trip to Monaco We need to assess Harry Kane, Mousa Dembele and Dele Alli, if they can play 90 minutes and dont take any risks that can affect for the next games.We have one day less than Monaco to recover because they play Friday, we play Saturday. Today is a very important day to assess and see if the players are fully recovered to play tomorrow. Kane scored twice in Tottenhams 3-2 win over West Ham on Saturday Kane scored two goals while playing the full 90 minutes of Spurs 3-2 win against West Ham on Saturday, having not featured for England during the international break after being named in the squad by Gareth Southgate. The 23-year-old had previously made just one appearance - in the north London derby against Arsenal on November 6 - since injuring his ankle against Sunderland on September 18.And Tottenham captain Lloris believes Kane is pivotal to turning around his sides Champions League results. One thing is very important - the return of Kane, Lloris said. He is bringing a lot of positive energy as we saw against Arsenal and West Ham. He is a very important player for us. Tomorrow he is going to be decisive hopefully.

He is one of the leaders and tomorrow is an important moment for Tottenham this season so we need all our top players at the top level.Its our responsibility tomorrow to play at that level.Monaco surprised Spurs with a counter-attacking performance that inspired a 2-1 victory in September and Pochettino admits Tottenham must guard against over-committing at the Stade Louis II.Its a game that we must win but we need to find a way how, Pochettino said.We have a good team in front, we know Monaco very well. We always want to win every game we play but its not about taking more or less risks but to be clever, follow the plan and try to win after 90 minutes.Thats our idea, our challenge. Its not about risks, its about balance in football. Hugo Lloris says there is no need to worry about his Tottenham future Lloris also eased concerns about his future at Tottenham with the France international yet to extend his current deal, which expires in 2019.There is nothing to worry about, Lloris said.

Just ask last seasons Supporters Shield winners, the New York Red Bulls, who were resoundingly defeated last weekend by a rampant Vancouver Whitecaps in a match which produced two contenders for MLS Goal of the Week from Sebastian Fernandez and Pedro Morales. Kenneth Acker Jersey . Top-seeded Djokovic swept to a 6-1, 6-3 win over 51st-ranked Roberto Bautista Agut of Spain in just 57 minutes, but fourth-seeded Federer had to see off a serious challenge from 48th-ranked Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic before coming through 6-2, 6-7 (4), 6-3.The Boston Bruins finished with a league-high 117 points, their most since 1971-1972, but after losing in their second-round series to Montreal, changes are expected. Off-Season Game Plan looks at Bruins team that has reached two of the last four Stanley Cup Final series, winning in 2011, yet wants more while their Stanley Cup window remains open. The core is in place, with Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Milan Lucic, Zdeno Chara and Tuukka Rask among the best at what they do, and the Bruins even built a solid supporting cast around them last season, but they didnt make up for the loss of Dennis Seidenberg due to injury, which weakened them enough on the blueline that they were vulnerable. A top-four possession team in back-to-back seasons, the Bruins are the best bet to come of the Eastern Conference next season, but not without some work this summer by GM Peter Chiarelli. Because the Bruins took advantage of Jarome Iginlas age and signed him to a bonus-laden contract, they are likely to be facing a more restrictive salary cap situation next season as bonus overages come due. If that means losing Iginla, or trading a defenceman, there will be some shuffling of the deck in Boston. Whats good for the Bruins is that they have the organizational depth from which to pull a prospect or two in order to refresh their forward ranks and go into next season nearly as strong as the team that on the Presidents Trophy. Additionally, the playoff disappointment might also facilitate more change with the Bruins, as they could add more speed and skill to their lineup. Nothing wrong with making a few changes to this team, but theyre plenty good enough that minor tweaks would be enough for the Bruins to go into next season as Cup contenders once again. The TSN.ca Rating is an efficiency rating based on per-game statistics including goals and assists -- weighted for strength (ie. power play, even, shorthanded) -- Corsi, adjusted for zone starts, quality of competition and quality of teammates, hits, blocked shots, penalty differential and faceoffs. Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be around 70, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90. Sidney Crosby finished at the top of the 2013-2014 regular season ratings at 87.12. Salary cap information all comes from the indispensable www.capgeek.com.

Because Bergeron takes on more difficult minutes, David Krejci gets turned loose in an offensive role and hes a creative playmaker that thrives with shooters on his wings. He may not be an elite offensive player, but Krejcis 351 points over the past six seasons ranks 28th, which is really good. Over the past four seasons, there are two players to score at least 80 goals while recording at least 400 penalty minutes, Scott Hartell and Milan Lucic, yet Lucic is unique as a physical presence; skilled enough to score, but also intimidating like few others. According to hockeyfights.com voters, Lucic has lost three of 25 fights over the past four seasons. He got criticized for his handshake-line threats to Dale Weise and Alexei Emelin after the playoff loss to Montreal, but its that intensity that can set Lucic apart and, polite or not, every team wants his combination of talent and toughness. Brad Marchand puts up elite possession numbers, though there is a reasonable argument to be made that those numbers are driven by Bergeron, and the agitating winger is one of the most efficient shooters in the league. Hes been a good complement to Bergeron, but his per-game shot and point production dipped last season and it wouldnt come as a total shock if the Bruins considered moving him. A late arrival in the NHL, Carl Soderberg had a strong season in his first NHL campaign, with point production similar to Bostons top six forwards, while he anchored an improved third line. He was also a first-rate point producer on the power play. Expectations were higher for Loui Eriksson after he came over from Dallas in the Tyler Seguin trade, but even though his point production wasnt great, Eriksson had strong possession stats, as should be expected from a two-way player of his ilk. True as that may be, the Bruins would likely prefer to see more of the 25-plus goal-scorer that Eriksson had been for four years prior to the past couple seasons. A broken leg and back injury cut into Chris Kellys playing time last season, and the 33-year-old was not as effective as hes been in the past, but wth two years left on his contract, which includes a no-trade clause, he figures to have some role with the Bruins next season. Spending much of his time on the Bruins fourth line, Daniel Paille gets obliterated in puck possession, but has some upward mobility in the lineup because of his speed and has scored nine or more goals in seven of the past eight seasons. No one questions the toughness of Gregory Campbell, who has missed six regular season games, and scrapped 31 times, in four seasons with the Bruins, battling his way in a fourth-line role, but he frequently ends up at the wrong end of the possession game and that could make him expendable. Practically an afterthought in the Tyler Seguin trade, Reilly Smith delivered a surprising 20 goals and 51 points in his second NHL season. While playing with Bergeron and Marchand certainly aided his production, Smith had been a strong possession player as a rookie in Dallas, so perhaps that scoring outburst shouldnt have been such a shock. A 23-year-old winger, Smith faded somewhat down the stretch, with 19 points in his last 40 games, but overall it was a very productive year. The last couple seasons have dimmed the star of Jordan Caron, a prospect who had shown prosmise, but now has two goals and six points in 52 games over the past two years. Given his poor possession stats, it would be easy to see Caron supplanted in the lineup by younger prospects on the way up. Jarome Iginla was productive for the Bruins, with yet another 30-goal season, but it could be more difficult for the Bruins to retain Iginla since the bonuses he earned for his production will on next years cap. If the Bruins need to seek out other-- and perhaps less expensive -- scoring options via free agency, they could look to Ales Hemsky, Radim Vrbata or perhaps try Nikolai Kulemin as one of three balanced right wingers.

He spent a lot of power play time with his 6-foot-9 frame parked in front of the oppositions net and his 24:39 average time on ice was his lowest since 2003-2004. In the past seven seasons, hes in an elite class when it comes to goals-for percentage. There were ups and downs in Dougie Hamiltons second NHL season, but he finished strong, with 18 points in 34 (regular season plus playoff) games to end the year, showing the kind of offensive game that helped make him the ninth pick in the 2011 Draft. He also delivered strong possession stats while facing tougher matchups in his second season, so the 20-year-olds career is on a nice upward trajectory. Hard-rock defenceman Johnny Boychuk played a career-high 21:12 per game for the Bruins last season, finishing with a career-high 23 points. He doesnt do anything fancy, but has a hard shot and plays a steady physical defensive game that has led to consistently effective puck possession stats. A knee injury ended Dennis Seidenbergs season after 34 games, creating a void on the Bruins blueline that was never quite adequately filled. Seidenberg wasnt as effective last season as he had been previously, but the 32-year-old has made his bones as a physical defensive defenceman and has played at least 21:50 per game for six seasons running. Adam McQuaid has his season shortened by quad and ankle injuries, though he did play a career-high 16:03 per game before he was sidelined. McQuaid has limited puck skills, but is 6-foot-5 and plays a physical game that can fit on a third pairing. A 26-year-old who was a rookie NHLer in his third pro season as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Vermont, Kevan Miller had his usage sheltered and his on-ice save percentage of 96.6% was highest among those to play at least 21 games last season, an indication that his plus-20 rating was fueled by good fortune. The top-scoring rookie defenceman last season, Torey Krug is on the small side, but the Bruins utilize him in a way to emphasize his offensive strengths, with more offensive zone starts against weaker opposition, but the question is whether or not Krug is destined to be a third pair defenceman who quarterbacks the power play, or will his skating and puck skills be enough to climb higher on the chart? Scratched a bunch early in the year, then thrust into a bigger role once Seidenberg was injured, Matt Bartkowski played 20:33 per game from January on, and hes posted solid possession stats over the past couple seasons. A strong skater who is improving his defensive reads, Bartkowski gives the Bruins really nice blueline depth. Returning Goaltenders Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Cap Hit Tuukka Rask 79.90 58 36 15 6 2.04 .930 $7.0M Free Agent Goaltender Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Class 13-14 Cap Hit Chad Johnson 72.87 27 17 4 3 2.10 .925 UFA $600K Over the course of his five NHL seasons, Tuukka Rask has the best save percentage among goaltenders with at least 175 games played. The 27-year-old has finished with a save percentage under .929 once during those five seasons and after playing a career-high 58 games last season, every indication suggests that Rask will be among the games top netminders for the forseeable future. Chad Johnson went from career minor-leager to an effective backup for the Bruins last year, but if he manages to cash in as a free agent, it would be easy enough for the Bruins to find a backup with a similar pedigree for an inexpensive one-year deal. Their own prospect, Niklas Svedberg, could be the first choice. Top Prospects Player Pos.

As he proves he can handle more work in the minors, the 2012 first-rounder will start closing the gap from Providence to Boston. A skilled forward who has yet to score in 27 career NHL games, Ryan Spooner has tallied 103 points in 108 AHL games over two pro seasons and had respectable possession stats to go along with 11 points in 22 games for the Bruins last season. If the Bruins need to inject offence into their forward group, Spooner, a second-round pick in 2010, is the natural one to get a shot. Alexander Khokhlachev, a second-round pick in 2011, played a full year in North America after some back-and-forth with Russia the year before, and Khokhlachev had a terrific year, scoring 30 goals and 71 points in 77 (regular season plus playoff) games. That puts him in prime position to challenge for a job in Boston. 24-year-old Niklas Svedberg, an undrafted free agent from Sweden, wasnt as strong in his second AHL season as he had been in 2012-2013, but is a viable candidate to hold down a backup role in Boston as soon as next season, particularly if that opens up more playing time for Subban in Providence. Part of the Tyler Seguin trade, Joe Morrow was Pittsburghs first-round pick (23rd overall) in 2011, and while he still needs to refine his defensive game, thats a work-in-progress for a 21-year-old that has puck skills and can run a power play. Acquired from the Blues for Vladimir Sobotka in 2010, David Warsofsky is a small defenceman that has made steady progress through three AHL seasons. He saw action in six games with Boston last season, putting up a couple of points, and may be on the cusp of being NHL calibre, but the Bruins are currently rather deep on the blueline. A power forward who scored 72 points in 92 games in three seasons at Cornell, Brian Ferlin was a fourth-round pick of the Bruins in 2011 and is set to embark on his pro career. The 22-year-old Florida native could use some time to get used to grind that is pro hockey. Yet another piece of the Seguin deal, Matt Fraser is a physical winger who got into 18 (regular season plus playoff) games for Boston last season. Hes been a decent possession player in his 27 NHL games, too, so he could challenge for a depth role. Drafted in the fifth round in 2012, Seth Griffith made a smooth transititon to pro hockey, injecting himself into the discussion of forwards that are due consideration when a call-up is required. A third-round pick in 2011, Anthony Camara doesnt have the highest ceiling as a scoring winger, but he plays a physical game and, with time to develop, could earn a bottom six spot. Picked in the fourth round last summer, Ryan Fitzgerald is the son of former NHLer Tom Fitzgerald, and coming off a strong freshman year at Boston College. Fitzgerald is undersized, but has time to fill out and get stronger before he is considered for pro hockey.
