According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Vancouver Canucks interview process for their next head coach will continue with Scott Arniel and Glen Gulutzan believed to be getting an audience either Wednesday or Thursday. Dennis Schroder Hawks Jersey . Dreger is also reasonably sure that Toronto Marlies head coach Dallas Eakins will get a second interview with the Canucks, but Dreger has been told that Eakins has not had it yet. Dreger reports that the Dallas Stars and New York Rangers will also be in the mix for Eakins services. Arniel was head coach of the Columbus Blue Jackets for parts of two seasons beginning in 2010-11 and compiled a 45-60-18 record in 123 games with the club. Last season he was the head coach of the AHLs Chicago Wolves. Gulutzan was fired on May 14 after two seasons in Dallas. He compiled a record of 64-57-9 in his first NHL head coaching job, and his team missed the playoffs in both of his seasons behind the bench. Eakins has been the Marlies bench boss since 2009 and has two years left on his three-year AHL deal. The deal includes a clause which allows him to pursue NHL opportunities this summer. Eakins led the Marlies to a 43-23-3-7 record this season before they were eliminated in the Western Conference semifinals. Dwight Howard Jersey . Two pressure cooker bombs exploded near the finish line of the April 15 race in an area packed with fans cheering the passing runners. Three people were killed and more than 260 injured, including at least 16 who lost limbs. Kirk Hinrich Hawks Jersey . - Chris Tierney snapped a tie with a power-play goal late in the third period as the London Knights rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat the Erie Otters 5-3 in Ontario Hockey League action on Wednesday. . -- Ryan Blaney provided more evidence that Penske Racings No. Misfortune stacked up like spent shotgun shells in the four years since Kim Rhode won her third Olympic gold medal.A brutally difficult pregnancy. A debilitating recovery, one thats still ongoing. Emergency gall bladder surgery. A five-day hospital stay for mosquito-borne illness. Her husbands own health issues. Her fathers broken leg. The deaths of six friends.Bitterness was readily available. All Rhode had to do was let it in.Perspective prevented that door from swinging open.For all thats been thrown at her, Rhode still has a healthy son, has herself on the slow road to recovery and will be joined by her family as she attempts to make history at the Rio Olympics next month.You just have to be thankful for what you have and know that there are people out there that have it worse, that are going through tougher times and just look at the positives in it, said Rhode, who turns 37 on Saturday. I feel very, very thankful of where Im at.Rhode is one of the greatest athletes not just in Olympic shooting, but any sport.She won double-trap gold at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics as a 17-year-old senior from El Monte (Calif.) Arroyo High School. Bronze followed at Sydney in 2000, another gold in Athens four years later. Rhode took silver in skeet at the 2008 Beijing Games and gold again, this time in skeet, at London in 2012.Rhode is the first American athlete in an individual sport to earn a medal in five straight Olympics. She is the only woman to win three Olympic golds in shooting.At Rio, she will be the first American to qualify for Olympics on five different continents and has a chance to join Italian luger Armin Zoeggeler as the only athletes to earn a medal in six straight Olympics. She also has 14 national championships and 28 World Cup medals, most all-time.But Rhodes road hasnt always been easy.Heading into the 2012 London Games, Rhode had two major setbacks: A breast cancer scare and the theft of her $15,000 shotgun, Old Faithful, which she had used in her first four Olympics.Oh, and her dog ate her plane ticket less than a week before Opening Ceremonies. Her husband lost his passport.No matter. Rhode has an innate ability to shut out distractions and had a singular focus in London.Using her new gun despite the return of her old one -- authorities found it while searching the home of a parolee -- she tied a world record by hitting 99 of 100 skeet targets in qualifying and cruised to her third Olympic gold. She also finished ninth in trap and became the first shotgun shooter to compete in all three disciiplines at the Olympics. Tim Hardaway Jr. Jersey. Adding a degree or two of difficulty, Rhode was pregnant in London and didnt know it.Rhode and her husband, Mike Harryman, were thrilled to learn they were expecting, but joy became tinged with pain as the pregnancy progressed.As part of the pregnancy process, a womans pelvic bones separate to allow space for the baby to be born. In about 2 percent of women, the pelvic bones spread too much, causing intense pain, making it difficult to walk, climb stairs or even roll over in bed.Rhode was in that 2 percent.Unfortunately, I drew the short straw, she said.Rhode was nearly bedridden for the final four months of her pregnancy and even after Carter was born May 13, 2013, she continued to have pelvic-bone issues, compounded by numerous other complications.Six weeks later, Rhode needed emergency surgery to remove her gall bladder. Doctors told her not to lift anything over 5 pounds, putting her son -- he was 8 pounds, 15 ounces -- and her gun off-limits.Gradually, she began to recover and shoot again.But the potholes kept coming.Her husband was hospitalized twice with a condition that affects the colon called diverticulitis, becoming septic during one episode, and her father broke his leg right before the world championships. A stretch of shooting events that included stops in Acapulco, Dubai and Cyprus led to a five-day stay in the hospital for a burst ovarian cyst and what doctors believe was a mosquito-borne illness.Sprinkled among those medical ailments were the unexpected and emotionally-debilitating deaths of a half-dozen friends.Ive had a hell of a three years. No joke, she said.Rhode is still recovering.She continues to have issues with her bones, suffers from nerve damage and the muscles on the right side of her abdomen dont work properly. Endurance is a problem. She wasnt cleared to walk more than a block until this February and has slowly built up her practice sessions to around 500 shots per day; 800 when shes feeling good. Her regular regimen was around 1,000 shots per day.Although slow, progress is being made. Rhodes perspective also remains in place, making her a favorite to win a fourth gold medal in Rio.When you go through all that stuff, you just have to say -- and Im almost afraid to say it -- that it cant get any worse. It can only get better, she said. You just kind of laugh it off and say the next day is going to be better.
