Topic : "A good friend of mine.

(SportsNetwork. J.J. Wilcox Womens Jersey .com) - The Buffalo Sabres headed into the Christmas break playing their best hockey of the season. It was pretty much the opposite for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Catch all the action on TSN and TSN Radio 1050 at 7:30pm et /4:30pm pt. The Sabres will shoot for a fourth win in five games when they visit the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs in Fridays Atlantic Division battle at Air Canada Centre. Toronto lost seven out of nine heading into the Christmas break, but the club at least has managed to earn points in three straight outings. The Maple Leafs have gone to the shootout phase in each of their last three games, beating Phoenix on Dec. 19 before losing consecutive tilts against Detroit and the New York Rangers. The Maple Leafs seemed on the verge of a regulation defeat Monday in New York City, but they came up with a controversial goal after Rangers forward Chris Kreider was sent off for shooting the puck over the glass with 3:34 remaining in the third period. New York goaltender Cam Talbot appeared to cover up David Clarksons chance in-close on the man advantage, but the whistle never blew and Nazem Kadri alertly pushed the puck over the line to make it a 1-1 game with only 84 seconds to go in regulation. However, Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello each scored for the Rangers during the shootout, while Joffrey Lupul scored Torontos lone goal in the decisive segment. Kadri had a chance to extend the shootout for Toronto, but was denied by Talbot. Toronto fell for the ninth time in its last 10 road games despite a terrific 42-save performance from Jonathan Bernier. "Our goaltender stood on his head," Maple Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle remarked. "Thats all you can ask in a game like this one." The Leafs are 12-8-1 as the home team this season compared to a 6-8-4 record on the road. Although Buffalo is still last in the NHL with 23 points, the club has recorded four of its 10 wins this season over the last seven games. The Sabres latest victory, Mondays 2-1 overtime win against visiting Phoenix, came with a little bit of luck, as Buffalo was the beneficiary of a bizarre play in the extra session. Mark Pysyk fired a shot from near the right circle 3:47 into the extra session which was initially stopped by Coyotes goalie Mike Smith, but the puck bounced straight up into the air and was batted down by a Phoenix defender and landed in the back of Smiths pants. Smith, unaware of the disc wedged in his pants, turned and slid backwards into the net carrying the puck across the goal line for the game-winner. "I saw it come down and figured it landed. I didnt know where it went from there, but I saw he was in the net and figured it was in," said Pysyk. Tyler Ennis scored the game-tying goal 14:01 into the final session for the Sabres. Ryan Miller made 36 saves in the win. Although Buffalo has picked up the pace recently, the club still enters Friday on an eight-game road losing streak. The Sabres, who last won as the guest on Nov. 5 in San Jose, are just 3-12-1 on the road this season. The Sabres have not fared well in Toronto recently either, losing two straight and seven of the last eight encounters at Air Canada Centre. Buffalo, however, has won three of the past four meetings overall. Buffalo hopes to have leading scorer Cody Hodgson back tonight after the centerman missed the last two games due to an upper-body injury. Hodgson has eight goals and 11 assists to pace the Sabres with 19 points. Barry Church Cowboys Jersey . Garth Buchko was reacting Friday to reports the team has a contingency plan to play more games at their old home, Canad Inns Stadium, if the new venue isnt ready by the end of July. Nick Hayden Cowboys Jersey . "Our level of work has to go up," said Carlyle on Thursday. "Weve stated that and weve (told) our players that the message is going to start to be delivered in a different manner if were not going to get the results that were looking for.OKLAHOMA CITY -- When the NBAs MVP results were announced Saturday, Oklahoma City Thunder star Kevin Durant found himself in a familiar spot: second. Just the seventh player to win three straight scoring titles, Durant ended up behind Miamis LeBron James in balloting for the leagues top individual honour. It was the second time in the last three years that Durant finished second in the voting, both times beaten by James. "Ive been second since high school, man. Second drafted. Second-best player in high school. Second in the MVP votes twice," Durant said when the Thunder finished practice, shortly after James was presented his MVP trophy in a ceremony in Miami. "Im over that being second stuff." James earned 85 out of 121 possible first-place votes. Durant got 24 first-place votes, was second on 83 ballots and was no worse than fourth on anyones ballot -- getting just one tally in that category. Durant finished fifth in the voting last season, when Chicagos Derrick Rose won it, and second in 2010. "Im always motivated. Me not winning MVP doesnt make me more motivated than I already was," said Durant, who was picked behind Greg Oden in the 2007 draft. "This is just a great opportunity for us to have a chance to compete for a world championship. "I just want to go out there and be me. I cant think about it too much because I didnt win it. Just go out there and be me and Ill live with the results." Durant said after the season that he considered it his best year yet, and that if he didnt win the MVP, it wouldnt overshadow the improvements he made in passing, becoming Oklahoma Citys leading rebounder and shooting a career-best 50 per cent. James finished the season ranked third in scoring at 27.1 points per game and averaged 6.2 assists and 7.9 rebounds while shooting a career-best 53 per cent from the field and 36 per cent from 3-point range. Durant averaged 28 points, 3.5 assists and eight rebounds. He shot a career-best 50 per cent from the field and made 39 per cent of his 3-point attempts. Both teams finished 46-20, second in their conferences. "Im proud of Kevin. He works every day to be in this position, to be coonsidered an MVP-calibre player," coach Scott Brooks said. Randy White Cowboys Jersey. "Hes 23. He has a lot of years to get that award if thats what he is going out looking to get, but he has never mentioned it to me that, My focus is to get the MVP. He wants to win the championship, like all the other guys on our team, and if that happens, its great." Durant and the Thunder were going through their seventh straight day without knowing opponent in the Western Conference semifinals. Denver and the Los Angeles Lakers were play Game 7 in their first-round series Saturday night, with the winner advancing to play in Oklahoma City on Monday night. The MVP presentation was going on while the Thunder were wrapping up what Brooks called a "chippy" practice, noting that his players are "done seeing each other and competing against each other; they want to play another opponent." Centre Kendrick Perkins remained day to day with a strained muscle in his right hip and went through only noncontact work before practice started. Brooks said he could be a game-time decision Monday night. In the leagues post-season awards, the Thunder made a good showing. James Harden won Sixth Man of the Year, power forward Serge Ibaka finished second in Defensive Player of the Year voting and Brooks was sixth place in Coach of the Year. Russell Westbrook tied for 11th in the MVP voting with Dallas Dirk Nowitzki, getting one fourth-place vote and one fifth-place vote. "LeBron, thats like unheard of for a guy to get three out of four MVPs," Durant said. "A good friend of mine. Im happy for him and of course I would love to have the MVP but at the same time, Ive just got to keep improving, keep getting better and hopefully Ill have one soon." Durant is attempting to be the first player from the franchise, which relocated from Seattle in 2008, to be chosen MVP. "Kevin has worked himself into this position, to be considered an MVP," Brooks said. "LeBron, Kevin and a few others are going to be in that position for the next 10 years. It could be a coin flip every year. Those guys put up great numbers and their team wins games." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Vancouver, BC (Sports Network) - There will be plenty of buzz tonight in Vancouver when David Beckham and the MLS champion Los Angeles Galaxy come to town to face the Whitecaps at BC Place. Jarrett Jack Nets Jersey . You can see the game live on TSN2 beginning at 10pm et/7pm pt. Since MLS took a short international break in early June, the Galaxy have been a new team. Or better yet, an old team. The team started the season 3-8-2, but since the short break from May 26 to June 17, the Galaxy have started to resemble last seasons team - and the rest of the year looks promising. With five wins in their last seven matches, and 2011 MLS Defender of the Year Omar Gonzalez set to return from an ACL injury, the Galaxy travel to Vancouver Whitecaps FC on Wednesday with a playoff spot in their grasp. And now just 14 points off the top and the impressive San Jose Earthquakes, it would not be a surprise to see coach Bruce Arena guide his club back to, or at least near, the top of the Western Conference. Los Angeles (8-10-2) is in fifth place in the West - the top five will advance to the postseason - and produced a memorable victory at Portland on Saturday. Beckham scored twice and had an assist, Robbie Keane also had two goals and an assist, and Landon Donovan had a goal and an assist in a 5-3 win. "Im more happy with the teams performance ... because I think we showed our character," Beckham said. Arena will still have to iron out a few kinks over the remainder of the year, but a win at BC Place against Vancouver - which has lost its previous three matches against L.A. - and the Galaxy will be within a point of fourth. Vancouver (8-6-6) has slowed recently as it lost both games over the last week against Toronto FC, 3-2, and the Chicago Fire, 1-0. The Whitecaps are just 1-3-1 in their last five matches, but all of those were on the road. The comfort of BC Place will be a nice change, as the squad last played there on June 20. With a 5-1-3 record at home, Vancouver can erase any concerns about its recent skid with a win over Los Angeles. Coach Martin Rennie does have concerns, though, as Alain Rochat is suspended for card accumulation, Eric Hassli is out with an ankle injury, and recently- signed Scotland international striker Kenny Miller is unlikely to debut. Newly-acquired midfielder Dane Richards makes him home debut for the Whitecaps after coming over from the New York Red Bulls. Regardless, Vancouver - fueled by exciting rookie Darren Mattocks - has shown it can compete with anybody in its second season, and will try to slow L.A. on Bell Pitch. Mason Plumlee Nets Jersey . -- Joey Logano punched his ticket to NASCARS playoffs. Brandon Davies Nets Jersey . We can play better, we can play much better, Loiselle said, noting that although the team is getting a little bit more defensive minded, management knows improvements can still be made. BAGNERES-DE-LUCHON, France -- Riding in his 10th Tour de France, three-time world champion Michael Rogers of Australia finally got his first stage victory in cyclings greatest race on Tuesday by leading a breakaway group to a downhill finish as the pack entered the Pyrenees. Italys Vincenzo Nibali, finishing about 8 1/2 minutes back, reined in his top challengers and retained the yellow jersey after Stage 16, the longest stage of this years race and the first of three days in the mountains on Frances border with Spain. Behind the Italian, the contest for podium places was shaken up: Thibaut Pinot of France rose to third in the standings, while compatriot Romain Bardet dropped to fifth. Tejay van Garderen of the United States lost more than 3 1/2 minutes, slipping from fifth to sixth and seeing his podium hopes dealt a serious blow. Rogers took a bow as he crossed the line alone after the 237.5-kilometre (147-mile) leg from Carcassonne to Bagneres-de-Luchon, which featured a tough climb up the mountain pass of Port de Bales. "Every cyclists dream is to win a stage at the Tour de France," said Rogers, who finished nine seconds ahead of Frances Thomas Voeckler -- who had won two previous Tour stages at Bagneres-de-Luchon in 2010 and 2012. "I cant describe the joy I felt in the last 500 metres ... I hope I dont have to wait another 10 years to experience it again." Rogers came close not to riding on this Tour for the Tinkoff-Saxo Bank team. In a ruling announced in April, the International Cycling Union accepted that meat Rogers ate in China last year probably caused his positive doping test at the Japan Cup shortly afterward. Rogers, a crucial teammate of two-time Tour champion Alberto Contador, convinced the UCI that he hadnt intended to cheat, and said the episode was "a very difficult time" for his family. Following the UCI ruling, Rogers said he came back with "a different outlook on life." "It was certainly a lesson in life for me," he added. Bojan Bogdanovic Nets Jersey. "Sometimes you need a lesson in life to see the silver lining in the cloud." Rogers said he might not have had the opportunity to win a stage if Contador -- his team leader, who crashed out in Stage 10 -- were still racing because his job would have been more of a support rider. Now that the Spaniard is out, the team came up with a Plan B: To try for stage wins. "I can be grateful, but Im also very heartbroken that Albertos not here," Rogers said. As the day began, a breakaway group of 21 riders came together over the first two hours and stuck together for much of the day, chiseling out a lead of more than 12 minutes. But their unity began to disintegrate along the 12-kilometre Port de Bales climb, which is ranked Hors Categorie because the ascent is so tough that its considered beyond classification. In its steepest patch, the gradient reached 11 per cent. Rogers was in a bunch of five riders that came together in the final descent, and he stepped on the accelerator with less than 5 kilometres (3.2 miles) left. Before the stage, the Lampre-Merida team said world champion Rui Costa of Portugal would not start due to pneumonia. The Portuguese rider had been in 13th place, about 13 minutes behind Nibali. After Tuesdays ride, Nibali leads second-place Alejandro Valverde of Spain by 4 minutes, 37 seconds, and Pinot is 5:06 back. French veteran Jean-Christophe Peraud is fourth, at 6:08, and Bardet is 6:40 behind. Van Garderen, while only losing a notch in the standings, is 9:25 behind the race leader. Stage 16 was just an appetizer for the Pyrenees, with uphill finishes to follow on Wednesday and Thursday. Aside from a penultimate stage time trial, Stage 17 starting in Saint-Gaudens will be the shortest this year at 124.5 kilometres (77 miles). It features three hard Category 1 climbs, and an ascent to the Saint-Lary Pla dAdet ski station. The three-week race ends Sunday on the Champs-Elysees in Paris. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : Tracy Horgan of Sudbury,

NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are pouring on the points, racking up the wins and rewriting the record books nearly every time they play. Wilbert Montgomery Eagles Jersey . Things sure are rollin on the river. Brees led an unstoppable offence by throwing for 466 yards and three touchdowns, and New Orleans dominated the second half for a 45-28 NFC wild-card victory over the Detroit Lions on Saturday night. New Orleans broke the post-season mark for total yards with 626, beating the record set 49 years ago. "We were pulling out all the stops," Brees said. "We play aggressive. Were not going to apologize for that. That gives guys in the huddle a lot of confidence. Were not going to pull the reins back. Its pedal to the medal." Brees hit on 33-of-43 passes while throwing for the most yards in a regulation playoff game. He highlighted his night with three completions of at least 40 yards. "We just focus on winning. Were not focused on yards and records," Saints coach Sean Payton said. "Im serious when I say that." As usual, the quarterback had plenty of help from an offence that set an NFL record for yards from scrimmage this season (7,474), outgaining Detroit on the ground 167 yards to 32. The Saints (14-3) will travel to San Francisco (13-3) for next Saturdays second-round game. Matthew Stafford threw for 380 yards and three TDs for the Lions (10-7), who simply could not keep pace in their first playoff appearance since the 1999 season. They have lost seven straight post-season games. "Its a learning experience for the whole team. Well get better. Well be back," Lions coach Jim Schwartz said. "Obviously it hurts right now." All-Pro receiver Calvin Johnson had 12 receptions for 211 yards and two touchdowns in his playoff debut for Detroit, but that was not nearly enough as the Saints defence responded in the fourth quarter with two interceptions by Jabari Greer. "We did make the playoffs this year and thats a great accomplishment," Johnson said. "We have some things to work on and we will. We know what we have to do to make the next step." The teams combined for 1,083 yards, tying an NFL playoff record set by Buffalo and Miami on Dec. 30, 1995. The Superdome will likely host a much different contest on Monday night, when defensive stalwarts LSU and Alabama meet for the BCS national title. Fans in the dome cheered wildly for the LSU band as it played before the game and at halftime, then enjoyed a second half that culminated in what they hope will be the first of two Big Easy celebrations in three nights. Pierre Thomas finished with 66 yards and one touchdown rushing, while Sproles added 51 yards, two scores and several other clutch plays. Marques Colston overcame an early fumble with seven catches for 120 yards, including a 40-yarder to set up Jimmy Grahams short TD grab. Robert Meachem had four catches for 111 yards, including a 56-yard score. Devery Henderson added a 41-yard touchdown reception. New Orleans showed guts and got a little good fortune on a decisive 14-play, 80-yard scoring drive in the fourth quarter. The Saints ran Sproles around the left end on fourth-and-2 at the Lions 40 and gained three yards. Soon after, Brees pass as he was clobbered by Nick Fairley went right through the hands of defensive back Aaron Berry. Berry would regret that drop two plays later as Sproles bolted 17 yards to make it 31-21. Stafford tried to get some of that back quickly, throwing deep for Titus Young, but Greer ran under it and picked it off. Four plays later, Brees spotted Meachem behind blown coverage for his long score to make it 38-21. The Lions became only the second visiting team all year to lead at halftime in the Superdome, where the Saints were unbeaten during the regular season. "So going into halftime at a deficit, we just realized, Listen, just bear down, one play at a time, one drive at a time," Brees said, "and I think we scored on every drive in the second half. I guess thats what you hope for." New Orleans has won nine in a row overall. The Saints opened the second half by driving 78 yards to take their first lead on Brees 31-yard pass to Henderson. New Orleans then widened its lead to 24-14 with a 92-yard drive that included what may have been a favourable spot on Colstons third-down grab at the Saints 18. Later, Brees converted a risky dive over the pile on fourth-and-one at the New Orleans 38 to sustain the drive before finding Colston for a 40-yard gain to the Detroit three. Brees hit Graham for a score on the next play. "It was fourth and inches and we felt like we had a rhythm going," Brees said. "Obviously it was a gutsy call but weve been known to make those types of calls." The Lions fought back with a quick 80-yard scoring drive highlighted by Staffords 42-yard completion to Johnson at the Saints two, setting up Staffords dive for the pylon on a bootleg that made it 24-21 late in the third quarter. Detroit could not have planned a much better start to its first playoff game since the 99 season. Stafford completed five of his first six throws for 70 yards, starting with a 22-yard completion to Johnson on the second play from scrimmage. A 10-yard strike to reserve tight end Will Heller gave the Lions a 7-0 lead. New Orleans responded by quickly driving into Lions territory, but Colston was stripped by Stephen Tulloch on the 18-yard line and Justin Durant recovered. It was a rare lost fumble for the Saints, who had an NFL low and franchise record low five during the regular season. New Orleans found the end zone on its next drive to tie it 7-7, but Stafford led the Lions right back downfield, hitting Johnson in the back of the end zone for a 13-yard score. The Saints then fumbled a second time in Detroit territory when Brees was stripped just before throwing by defensive end Willie Young and the ball squirted to Durant for his second recovery. Durant wanted to return it, but the play was inexplicably blown dead. What might have been a touchdown return instead became a stalled drive. The Saints thought they had tied it when Colstons catch in the back of the end zone was ruled a touchdown, but it was overturned on replay and New Orleans wound up settling for John Kasays 24-yard field goal and a 14-10 halftime deficit. Notes: Bernie Kosar still holds the record for yards passing in a playoff game, though his game in 1986 went to overtime when he reached 489 for Cleveland against the New York Jets. ... Detroits leading rusher was Kevin Smith with only 21 yards. ... The Lions rushed the ball only 10 times and their longest gain was nine yards. ... The Saints surpassed 500 total offensive yards in five regular season games, with the playoff game being the sixth. ... Brees finished the regular season with seven straight 300-yard or more passing games and easily continued the streak against the Lions. Chase Blackburn Panthers Jersey . The Maple Leafs handed their embattled head coach a two-year contract extension on Thursday, while at the same time announcing that assistants Dave Farrish, Greg Cronin and Scott Gordon will not be back. Alex Boone 49ers Jersey .Y. -- Canadas Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse have another World Cup gold medal after winning the two-women bobsled race on Saturday in Lake Placid, N. KITCHENER, Ont. -- Brad Gushue overcame a sloppy game to beat Jake Higgs 10-4 at the 2013 Capital One Road to the Roar Olympic pre-trial curling tournament Wednesday. Gushue scored four in the second end, stole three in the fifth and two more in the sixth against Higgs, from Glencoe, Ont. The victory moves Gushues St. Johns, N.L., rink into Thursdays A-event final against John Morriss team from Kelowna, B.C., and Vernon, B.C. Both rinks will play for a berth in Saturday afternoons page playoff A-B game. Gushue said his team did just enough to get past Higgs. "It was a comedy of errors by both teams," said the 2006 Olympic gold-medallist. "Fortunately we made them try some pressure shots, and they didnt pull through. But it was not a well-curled game by either team." Morris advanced with a 10-5 win against Greg Balsdon of Elgin, Ont. Even in a triple-knockout competition, Gushue said he isnt taking anything for granted against Morris. "If you win, youre in great shape," said Gushue. "You get two cracks (at a Trials berth), and if you lose, you drop back into a B semi, so youre still two games oout and youll end up playing some good teams. Bradley Roby Broncos Jersey. . So its a bit of a desperation game. Not do-or-die, but its such a big advantage and you want to play hard for it." Balsdon and Higgs dropped to the B-Event with the losses. The womens A-event final Thursday will feature former world champion Kelly Scott of Kelowna taking on Renee Sonnenberg of Grande Prairie, Alta., with a berth in Saturdays A-B final on the line. Scott stole back-to-back points in the sixth and seventh ends to beat Krista McCarville of Thunder Bay, Ont., 6-5. Sonnenberg broke open a 4-4 game through seven ends by scoring one in the eighth, stealing one in the ninth and three more in the 10th for a 9-4 win over Laura Crocker of Edmonton. In womens B-event play, Tracy Horgan of Sudbury, Ont., was a 12-7 winner over Winnipegs Barb Spencer. Spencer had taken a 5-3 lead by scoring four in the fifth end, but Horgan immediately bounced back with four in the sixth and never trailed again. Two curlers from both the mens and womens events will earn the final four spots for the Roar of the Rings Canadian Curling Trials next month in Winnipeg. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : The Toronto Raptors are up a couple of spots

DALLAS -- Talk about a quick 1-2-3 for the Dallas Stars. Louis Williams Raptors Jersey . Cody Eakin, Stephane Robidas and Ryan Garbutt produced a three-goal flurry in a 53-second span of the third period, and the Stars beat the Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks 6-3 on Tuesday night for their first home win in more than month. "We were just still talking on the bench about, OK, its a tie game. Lets get this thing (under control), stay the course, do that, and next its 3-2," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "It just went boom, boom. They got the goal, and the crowd got into it, and then the rest is history." After giving up a goal to Nick Bonino in the final seconds of the second period that put the Ducks ahead 2-1, Dallas wiped out that deficit with the fastest three-goal stretch in the NHL since January 2012. "Youre thinking that we fought hard to tie it up and want to go into the third period and try to play a 20-minute period of the win, and now were going to chase the game again as soon as we come out," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "But we were able to turn it, I can tell you a nice story now. Otherwise, we might have blamed the game on that late goal." Eakins sixth goal of the season tied it 2-2 with 14:35 left. Only 25 seconds later, Robidas was between the circles when he scored his fourth of the season. Garbutt then gathered a loose puck and scored with a backhanded swipe with 13:42 left to make it 4-2. He didnt realize how quickly the trio of goals had come. "But it was pretty cool," said Garbutt, who also had two assists. Fans in the building were suddenly in a frenzy as Boudreau finally called timeout. "We might have had to have a little bottle of NoDoz after the first period, but we woke them up in the third," Ruff said. Roussel was in the crease when he netted his second goal with just under 8 minutes left. Hiller quickly argued with the referee to no avail, trying to get an interference call. Dan Ellis stopped 28 shots, winning for only the second time in seven games. Dallas had been 0-2-2 at home since a 5-1 victory over Calgary on Oct. 24. Emerson Etem, Nick Bonino and Dustin Penner scored for the Ducks, who are 10-4-3 in their last 17 games. Penners tally was a power-play goal with 6 1/2 minutes left. "It does happen quickly," Ducks centre Andrew Cogliano said. "When momentum turns and it starts going the other way, its really hard to stop it." The Stars played the first of three straight home games. Next is Friday night against the Central Division-leading Chicago Blackhawks, who have an NHL-best 38 points -- one more than Anaheim and St. Louis. This was the second of three meetings this season for the former Pacific Division rivals who used to play six times a season. It was the only trip to Dallas for the Ducks, who won 6-3 at home on Oct. 20 and will host the Stars again on Feb. 1. Hiller, who faced 32 shots, gave up three goals on 12 shots against the Stars in the previous matchup before he was pulled from the game. Boninos seventh of the season came with 36 seconds left in the second period. He took a pass from Cogliano, and the puck went off his skate before he used his stick to score from the right side of the net for a 2-1 lead. Etem scored from in front 6:06 into the game to give the Ducks a 1-0 lead. Roussel tied it when the puck caromed in off his skate with 6:47 left in the second period. Officials reviewed the goal before ruling that it wasnt kicked into the net to the left of Hiller after a pass from Vernon Fiddler. "That was a team win," Roussel said. "Were very excited about that win because everybody was involved."

ASHBURN, Va. Cheap NFL Jerseys China Free Shipping . - Bill Callahan is joining the Washington Redskins as offensive line coach after working for the rival Dallas Cowboys the past three seasons.The Redskins announced the hiring Thursday.Callahan, who went to the 2003 Super Bowl as head coach of the Oakland Raiders, held titles of offensive co-ordinator and offensive line coach while with Dallas. He served for a time as play-caller for the Cowboys, but those duties were taken away this season.His resume includes working as offensive line coach of the New York Jets from 2008-11, and as head coach of Nebraska in college football from 2003-06.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys .Y. -- Any chance the St. Cheap NFL Jerseys China .com) - On a night where Kobe Bryant could have passed the great Michael Jordan on the NBAs all-time scoring list, it was Nick Young who bailed the Los Angeles Lakers out against the defending champs. TAMPA, Fla. -- Joe Girardi found out about Derek Jeters retirement announcement the same way almost everyone else did: when the New York Yankees captain posted a letter to the world on his Facebook page this week. Girardi left snowy New York on Friday and arrived at spring training for his seventh year as Yankees manager, and he spent the first eight minutes of his 20-minute opening news conference discussing Jeters decision to retire after this season. "I think we were probably all a little bit taken aback by it," Girardi said. "Youre never sure how someones going to do it, but I had no inkling that thats what he was thinking." After missing the playoffs for just the second time in 19 years, the Yankees were back in business when pitchers and catchers reported ahead of Saturdays opening workout. Alex Rodriguezs locker was empty following his season-long suspension. Masahiro Tanaka inherited Mariano Riveras locker and Shawn Kelley got Andy Pettittes stall. Scott Sizemore, attending camp on a minor league contract, was assigned Robinson Canos jersey No. 24. Position players report next Wednesday, when Jeter holds a news conference at Steinbrenner Field to explain his decision. Girardi has exchanged texts with the 39-year-old shortstop but has not spoken with him. "This is going to be a guy thats hard to replace in your clubhouse and on your club," he said. "Its the nature of the business where people age and they move on and they go and do different things in their life, and in our life its a little bit quicker than some of the other working people of this world." Jeter was limited to 17 games last year after fracturing his left ankle in the 2012 playoffs and breaking it again last spring during his rehabilitation. Girardi said Jeter always told him "I feel great," but that he could sense frustration. After working out Friday with Brian Roberts at the Yankees minor league complex, Jeter demurred discussing his decision. "It makes no sense to do it here and then do it again over there, so Ill do it all over there one time," he said. And so now Jeter will go on a valedictory tour, much like Mariano Rivera did last year. JJeter is not the type to call attention to himself, making his public announcement before spring training all the more surprising. Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping. "It could have been just watching how Mo did it, and how much fun everyone seemed to have with it with Mo," Girardi said. "He might have said, you know, its a pretty good way to go out." Jeter has won five World Series titles with the Yankees but none since 2009, and his final lap of the major leagues figures to set the theme as New York tries for title No. 28. His teammates looked forward to speaking with him after he reports. "Not really surprised, saddened I guess that hes not going to be around," ace pitcher CC Sabathia said. "You want a guy like that to play forever." Having witnessed Chipper Jones final season with the Atlanta Braves in 2012, new Yankees catcher Brian McCann is looking forward to Jeters last go-round. "Hes been the face of baseball since he broke in," McCann said. "I went through it with one Hall of Famer. Im going to go through it with another." David Robertson, inheriting the closers role from Rivera, hadnt thought Jeter would make his plans known before the seasons end. "But Im really glad he did," he said. "I think its going to give the fans a chance to come out this year and see him in his final season in pinstripes." Robertsons new job is one of many changes for the Yankees, who spent $471 million on free agents, including a $20 million payment to Tanakas old club in Japan. McCann and outfielders Jacoby Ellsbury and Carlos Beltran are among the many newcomers, and first baseman Mark Teixeira is returning from a wrist injury that sidelined him most of last season. Cano -- the Yankees top hitter -- left for a $240 million, 10-year deal with Seattle. Girardi predicted for the April 1 opener at Houston that Yankees players at every position other than pitcher will be different from opening day last year. The only time thats happened in franchise history was 1947, according to STATS. "I think it is probably the biggest transition Ive been through," Girardi said. "I need to learn a lot of new faces fairly quickly." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

vSAN DIEGO -- Arizonas Brandon McCarthy went seven innings and won for just the second time this season, pitching the Diamondbacks past the Padres 2-1 on Friday night. NZ-C066 Black/Silver Mens/Womens Nike Free 5.0 V3 Shoes . McCarthy (2-10) limited San Diego to one run and six hits. He struck out seven with no walks as he beat the Padres for the second time this season and fourth in five career decisions. Addison Reed pitched the ninth inning for his 18th save in 21 chances. The Padres, who were no-hit by the Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants in their last game, were again challenged offensively. Tyson Ross (6-8) took the loss as the Padres continued a disturbing trend. In Ross last five starts the Padres have scored one run. The Padres cut Arizonas lead in half in the fifth inning on a sacrifice fly by Ross. He drove in Cameron Maybin who reached on a single and took third on a single by Alexi Amarista. San Diego squandered a chance to tie the game in the sixth when Chase Headley reached third with one out. But with the infield in, Will Venable grounded to Aaron Hill at second base and he erased Headley trying to score. Venable was retired when he broke for second base while Headley was in a rundown. The Diamondbacks broke the scoreless tie in the fourth when Paul Goldschmidt walked to open the inning, which preceded a single by Miguel Montero. They advanced to second and third on a wild pitch by Ross. David Peralta drove them both in with a sharp one-out single up the middle. Martin Prado smacked a similar ball toward centre, but with Amarista covering second on a steal attempt by Peralta, he was in position to turn an inning-ending double play. Down 2-0, the Padres had an opportunity to cut into their deficit when Headley and Yasmani Grandal had consecutive one-out singles in the fourth inning. But Venable and Jake Goebbert struck out looking to squash the rally. The Padres got their first hit in 11 innings in the third when Ross bunted for a two-out single. Ross effort down the first base line was fielded by McCarthy but his throw was late and offline. Ross, the Padres second base runner over that 11-inning span, didnt go far. Everth Cabrera followed with a ground ball to shortstop to end the inning. NOTES: Diamondbacks SS Chris Owings was scratched from the lineup with a sore left shoulder. .

The Tampa Bay Lightning announced forward Valtteri Filppula will miss approximately three weeks with a non-displaced fracture in his right ankle. Carlos Rogers Raiders Jersey . The injury will keep the Finnish forward out of the Olympics. The 29-year-old has 20 goals and 41 points in 56 games this season, his first with Tampa Bay.

MANCHESTER, England -- The most unpredictable Premier League season in years threw up more surprises Saturday when Chelsea conceded a 90th-minute winner at Stoke and beleaguered defending champion Manchester United lost to Newcastle for a second home defeat in four days. With Manchester City being held 1-1 at Southampton, Liverpool was able to capitalize on its rivals slip-ups by thrashing West Ham 4-1 to go second, with Luis Suarez following up his spectacular quadruple in midweek by scoring again at Anfield. It was a good day for Arsenal, which retained its four-point lead ahead of its game against Everton on Sunday. Chelseas 3-2 loss at Stoke, sealed by Oussama Assaidis late strike, saw Jose Mourinhos side drop to third on goal difference behind Liverpool. Uniteds flimsy hopes of retaining its title took another battering by losing 1-0 to Newcastle at Old Trafford, leaving the champions languishing in ninth place -- 12 points behind Arsenal -- and placing further scrutiny on David Moyes in his turbulent first season as Alex Fergusons successor. "I dont think (the fans) or me expected us to have lost five games by this time of the season," said Moyes, who still believes United will be "very close" to the title come May. Yohan Cabayes 61st-minute goal earned Newcastle its first win at Old Trafford in 41 years and left United supporters further disheartened after a loss by the same scoreline to Everton on Wednesday. The way the champions are playing, a place in next seasons Champions League could even be out of reach, although the top four is wide open with the big teams continuing to drop points. Also Saturday, Sunderland stayed bottom after squandering a lead to lose 2-1 at home to sixth-place Tottenham, which has picked up seven points from a possible nine since being humiliated 6-0 by Man City last month. Crystal Palace beat Cardiff 2-0 for a third win in four matches since the departure of Ian Holloway and Norwich won 2-0 at West Bromwich Albion. There was a minutes applause before each Premier League game in honour of former South Africa president Nelson Mandela, who died on Thursday at the age of 95. Chelsea and Man City were looking to apply pressure on Arsenal but couldnt hold onto their leads away from home. Andre Schuerrle put Chelsea in front and then equalized for 2-2 after Stoke had hit back through goals by Peeter Crouch and Stephen Ireland, only for Assaidi to grab the winner with seconds left of normal time. LeSean McCoy Bills Jersey. "I dont feel comfortable enough to tell you what I think about the game. Were in trouble," said Mourinho, bemoaning his teams lack of organization. Sergio Aguero moved to 12 goals for the campaign -- two behind Suarezs league-high tally -- to give City the lead at Southampton, but Pablo Osvaldo delivered a brilliant equalizer just before halftime by leaving Vincent Kompany on the ground, turning Pablo Zabaleta and floating in a curling shot from the angle just inside the area. "Im pleased with the point," said City manager Manuel Pellegrini, whose sides away form has been erratic this season. Suarez couldnt reproduce his exploits of Wednesday, when he scored four stunning goals against Norwich, but he once again proved to be the difference for Liverpool in a game of three own goals against West Ham. Guy Demel and Joey OBrien put in their own net to bookend the victory after good work by Suarez, who scored himself with a powerful header in the 81st minute to make it 3-1. Mamadou Sakho netted Liverpools second, with West Ham replying through Martin Skrtels own goal before losing Kevin Nolan to a red card with eight minutes left. "In the end we had 29 attempts at goal, and we could have scored more than four. It was a great victory," said Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, whose captain Steven Gerrard limped off injured midway through the second half. Liverpool has scored 17 times in its last four home games but United found goals hard to come by this week, failing to score in successive games to lose back-to-back home matches in the league for the first time in 11 years. Without the suspended Wayne Rooney and with Robin van Persie lacking sharpness in his first match back after a month out, United lacked a cutting edge against Newcastle, which controlled midfield and pounced when Cabayes sidefooted effort deflected into the corner. "When I came here I knew it wasnt always going to be easy and its proving that way," Moyes said. As the pressure on one coach increases, so it relents on another as Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas punched the air in delight after his teams second away win in four days. John OSheas own goal in the 50th sealed Spurs victory at the Stadium of Light. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Andray Blatche took to Twitter on Tuesday to, in effect, criticize the way his criticisms were criticized following the Wizards season-opening loss to the New Jersey Nets. "Every body need to shut up I didnt call out my coach or team mates I said I had a bad game need it n the post instead of jump shots," Blatche tweeted. Blatche wasnt happy after the 90-84 defeat in which the Wizards blew a 21-point lead, saying afterward he wasnt being used to the best of his abilities. He scored 11 points on 5-for-13 shooting and was called for a technical for exchanging words with Kris Humphries "You cant keep having me pick-and-pop and shooting jump shots," he said in the locker room. "Give me the ball in the paint. Thats where Im most effective at. Ive been saying that since training camp: I need the ball in the paint. I dont want to be the pick-and-pop guy that I used to be. Its not working for me." Blatche has been known to be a bit of a wild card during his seven seasons in the Wizards locker room, but this outburst was exceptional because he had introduced himself as "your captain, Andray Blatche" to the crowd during a pregame speech -- and because the team is only one game into the season, playing under the theme "New Traditions." If this keeps up, the Wizards could somehow manage to make even a lockout-shortened season seem long. "Its disappointing," coach Flip Saunders said Tuesday. "But, look, we were all disappointed." Saunders met with Blatche before ppractice to sort things out. jerseys from china. "We talked about what he said about as far as wanting to be in the post," Saunders said. "And I told him, thats something to my ears. I love hearing that. ... But then he also has to understand that just because you get it at 17 feet, you dont have to shoot it either. Im not twisting his arm to do that." Saunders also clarified the captaincy situation. He said he plans to rotate captains for the time being because the team had such an abbreviated training camp. Blatche and John Wall served as captains for the first game. "It was a situation last night, hes been here longer than anybody else," Saunders said. "And so well rotate as far as who its going to be." Before the lockout, Saunders gave Blatche a book titled "The 17 Essential Qualities Of A Team Player." Blatche has said he read about half of it. At media day following the lockout, owner Ted Leonsis said: "I talked to Andray, and he understands that the fan base, media are all looking to take cues on can his focus and dedication match his skills." Blatche did not speak to reporters Tuesday, opting to exit the court through an alternate door after practice. The closest thing to a captain-like comment came from rookie Chris Singleton, who already doesnt care for the taste of NBA losing despite having experienced it only once. "I dont want it to be a recurring thing," Singleton said. "I want to change this culture, and theres too much losing the last couple of years. Some people might just like that. Im not used to it, and Im not trying to get used to it." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : Arizona and the Senators each have three wins in the last

OAKLAND, Calif. Wholesale Jerseys China . -- The Golden State Warriors are banking on Andrew Boguts future in the Bay Area. The Warriors and the often-injured centre agreed to a contract extension Friday, a day after the team finished the preseason. A person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press it was for three years and $36 million and could be worth up to about $42 million with incentives. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the terms had not been publicly disclosed. Boguts contract was set to expire after this season. "We put a lot of money into believing hes going to be healthy," general manager Bob Myers said. "In this business, youre taking risks on players, whether they stay healthy or not. We used all our analysis, all the things we knew, all the information that was at hand with us to make the decision we did. "Size is a scarcity in the NBA, and we felt like this was somebody we needed to have going forward to be a successful NBA basketball team. Hes a big piece of our recent and past success and hopefully future success. So for us, we were willing to take that risk, and we think its a good one." The Warriors acquired Bogut in a trade-deadline deal in March 2012 that sent guard Monta Ellis to Milwaukee. Bogut did not play for Golden State that season while recovering from a fractured left ankle. The 7-footer from Australia missed 50 of 82 games last season, mostly because of soreness in his surgically repaired ankle. He also battled back and knee injuries while averaging a career-low 5.8 points to go with 7.7 rebounds, but he was at his best in the playoffs, making a major difference on defence to help the Warriors get to the second round. Myers, Bogut and Boguts agent, David Bauman, spoke generally in May about an extension and agreed to revisit talks more seriously this October. Bogut said he gave the Warriors a Friday deadline to get a deal done because he didnt want negotiations to drag into the regular season, which begins Wednesday night at home against the Los Angeles Lakers. "I was never a greedy guy that was going to come and say, Pay me X or Im walking or pay me X or Im going to free agency," Bogut said. "I think Im realistic about the injuries that Ive had and the tough times that Ive had with the organization and the pressure that theyve faced with fans for making the trade. It was one of those things where we came to common ground and I was happy. I couldve easily said, Ill wait till the off-season and easily make more money in the long run and have someone just chasing you. But Im happy with my deal right now." When Bogut has played, he has played well. He has career averages of 12.2 points, 9.2 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.58 blocks in 440 regular-season games over eight seasons. Staying healthy enough to play, though, has been a constant battle since Milwaukee made him the No. 1 overall pick out of Utah in the 2005 draft. Bogut took anti-inflammatory injections just to stay on the court in the playoffs last season, but he showed up in the biggest moments despite his limitations. He had 21 rebounds, 14 points, four blocks and three assists in the Game 6 clincher against Denver in the first round. He also fought through pain until the eventual Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs sent the Warriors home in six games in the second round. Bogut missed the end of the 2009-10 season with Milwaukee when he dislocated his right elbow, sprained his right wrist and broke his right hand in a hard fall to the floor. He also missed significant time with an injured lower back in the 2008-09 season. Bogut has repeatedly called the injuries "freak accidents," but the setbacks have taken a toll, physically and mentally. At one point while rehabbing his ankle most of last season, Bogut said he was in a "dark place" and even considered retirement. Instead, Golden States surprising playoffs -- and his role in it -- left him rejuvenated. He lost about 15 pounds this off-season, showing up in training camp in great shape. "Just kind of surreal," Bogut said. "Just kind of thinking about coming to the NBA as a kid was a dream, it wasnt reality. To be extended now ... its an unbelievable feeling."

Wholesale Jerseys .J. -- Waiting to get their hands on the Lombardi Trophy, the Seahawks were surrounded by security guards in orange jackets.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Arizona Coyotes hope to build off their first victory in weeks when they visit the Ottawa Senators for Saturdays matinee clash at Canadian Tire Centre. The Coyotes entered Thursdays game in Toronto mired in an 0-5-2 slump, but they notched a 3-1 comeback victory for their first win since a 4-1 home triumph against Winnipeg on Jan. 8. Arizona trailed the Maple Leafs 1-0 after two periods, but Oliver Ekman- Larsson scored a short-handed goal just five seconds into the third period to kindle a rally. Ekman-Larssons goal, which tied a franchise record for quickest to open a period, came from beyond center ice after Lauri Korpikoski won the faceoff. Martin Hanzal netted the go-ahead goal 3:42 later and Sam Gagner scored on a power play later in the period as Arizona ended its seven-game slide while sending Toronto to its eighth straight loss. After the second period we thought we deserved a better fate in the game, said Coyotes Dave Tippett. We had created a lot of chances. Mike Smith had 24 saves in the win, which also stopped a five-game road losing streak for the Coyotes, who are in the midst of an eight-game trek. It was their first win away from home since Dec. 23 in Edmonton. The Coyotes, who are just 8-13-3 away from home, will visit Montreal tomorrow before completing the swing Tuesday in Columbus. Ottawa has lost three of its last four games and is coming off Thursdays 6-3 setback against former Senators captain Jason Spezza and his Dallas Stars. Thursdays game was closer than thee final score made it seem, as Ottawa rallied from down 3-0 to even the contest by the early stages of the third period.dddddddddddd John Klingberg snapped the tie for Dallas in the latter stages of the third period before Trevor Daley and Jamie Benn added empty-net markers to arrive at the final margin. Mika Zibanejad, Bobby Ryan and Alex Chiasson scored once each for the Senators, who have lost seven of their last 10. Robin Lehner allowed four goals on 39 shots in the setback. We werent competitive enough, we werent detailed enough, Ottawa coach Dave Cameron said. Although his team picked up a victory, Spezza failed to reach the scoresheet as he returned to Ottawa for the first time since requesting a trade from the Senators last summer. Spezza, who registered four shots on goal in 16:17 of ice time, was booed the first time he touched the puck, but the Canadian Tire Centre crowd cheered a tribute shown on the video board shortly after. With Craig Anderson on injured reserve with a bruised hand, Lehner will start again today. Lehner is 2-4-1 with a 3.28 goals against average in seven career outings against Arizona. The Sens are closing a three-game homestand this afternoon and are 10-7-4 as the host this season. Arizona and the Senators each have three wins in the last six meetings in this series, but Ottawa has claimed 11 of the past 15 encounters. The Coyotes had lost six straight -- all in regulation -- on the road in this matchup before posting an overtime win in Ottawa on Dec. 21, 2013. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : Rakuten Eagles President Yozo Tachibana says no decision

BOSTON - Teams that advance this deep into the post-season rarely have glaring deficiencies and when it comes to their respective starting staffs and in the offensive lineups of the Red Sox and Tigers, theyre difficult to find. cheap jerseys from china .   That also goes for each clubs closer in Detroits Joaquin Benoit and Koji Uehara of Boston.   Dig a little deeper into those bullpens, though, and you understand why both managers expect their stud starters – Bostons Jon Lester, Clay Buchholz, John Lackey and Jake Peavy and Detroits Anibal Sanchez, Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander and Doug Fister – to pitch deep into each game.   Quite frankly, their managers need them to.   “Hopefully our starters match up to theirs and I think that will be one of the keys in this series for us,” said Red Sox manager John Farrell. “I cant speak for what Jim is thinking about with his own team. Our ability for our starters to keep the game under control will be pivotal for us.”   “I think this series, like most series to be honest with you, everybody talks about the bullpen but when you get in the short series, just like the other night, we didnt use our bullpen,” said Tigers manager Jim Leyland. “I think this will be a starting pitching series, with the exception of the ninth inning, most likely. Youre going to see Lester and Lackey and Peavy and those kinds of guys.”   Despite the success of the back end, Detroit and Boston each sported relief corps which finished in baseballs bottom 10 in bullpen ERA. The Red Soxs 3.70 ERA came in at 21st and the Tigers were even worse, finishing 24th with a 4.01 ERA.   Theres a reason Leyland went to ace Max Scherzer late in the crucial fourth game of the Tigers Division Series against Oakland, facing elimination.   “They might have a little more depth, maybe,” said Leyland. “A little more – maybe a slight edge in getting to (the closers,) although I feel very comfortable with our bullpen.”   “Weve got some guys that we trust late in the game,” said Farrell. “Whether its Craig (Breslow,) or Junichi (Tazawa) and certainly Koji at the end. But we feel weve got matchup ability and guys tested more recently in this series.”   Canadian Ryan Dempster, 36, agreed to a move to the bullpen in mid-September and is an option available to Farrell. Dempster spent four seasons (2004-2007) as a closer for the Cubs.   The Tigers like left-handed set up man Drew Smyly and with good reason. He posted a 2.37 ERA and 1.039 WHIP in 63 appearances this season. Hell be tested in this series, however, with Bostons solid right-handed nucleus of Dustin Pedroia, Mike Napoli and Jonny Gomes, possibly off the bench.   Beyond Smyly, its a hodgepodge. Right-hander Al Alburquerque has the stuff but he walked 34 hitters in 49 innings. Left-hander Phil Coke, added to the roster in time for the ALCS, had a disastrous season. Fifth starter, right-hander Rick Porcello, will be available in a long role.   Benoit locked down 24 of 26 save opportunities this season. Uehara converted 21 of 24 on the year and was a virtual lock after taking over as closer when Joel Hanrahan and Andrew Bailey got hurt.   Each has two saves in the post-season and neither has blown a game, although Uehara did surrender the walk-off home run to Tampa Bays Jose Lobaton, breaking the 3-3 deadlock in the third game of Bostons division series with the Rays.   “I think both managers are hoping that the bullpen, unless its real late, is not as significant maybe,” said Leyland.   Then Leyland added perhaps the most obvious statement.   “If our starters arent good, were not going to win this series and probably the same for them.” nfl jerseys china . - The Chicago Bears benched Jay Cutler on Thursday, deciding to start Jimmy Clausen against the Detroit Lions this weekend instead of their franchise quarterback who signed a massive, seven-year deal at the end of last season. jerseys from china . -- Rakuten Eagles President Yozo Tachibana says no decision has been made on whether star pitcher Masahiro Tanaka will be made available to Major League Baseball teams.CANBERRA, Australia - A goal after just 14 seconds by Ali Mabkhout set up a 2-1 win for the United Arab Emirates over Bahrain on Thursday at the Asian Cup.The striker scored his third goal of the tournament as UAE made it two wins from two games in Group C to move within sight of the quarterfinals.

Topic : It was two points early in the fourth, and San Antonio led 77-70

Early in the season, it is important how you play, not just whether you win or lose. Chris Andersen Authentic Jersey . When you get late in the season or playoffs, its all about winning. Could the Winnipeg Jets have beaten the Philadelphia Flyers at the MTS Centre Tuesday? Yes. Would they have deserved to beat the Flyers? Probably not. It was a heartbreaker, but one that the team simply cant dwell on. What could have been was top spot in the Southeast, but what is most important now is getting ready for Thursdays game against Tampa, the fourth game of an eight-game homestand. (TSN Jets, TSN 1290) For the third straight home game, the Jets scored first with Dustin Byfugliens ninth of the year on the power play. When the Jets had the great homestand in December, scoring first was important. It was tied at one after the first with Claude Giroux scoring for the Flyers. It was a wild second period with Scott Hartnell giving the Flyers the lead with a power play goal, but two goals by Andrew Ladd 1:04 apart gave the Jets the lead once more. Ladd snapped a 13-game goal-less drought Sunday, and with the two in this game, has 19 on the year. It was his eighth career two-goal game. Max Talbot tied the game before the second period ended with the Flyers outshooting the Jets 31-20 after two. Evander Kane gave the Jets a 4-3 lead at 4:57 of the third and then the Jets tried to hold on. And it looked as though they would do it, thanks do some outstanding goaltending from Ondrej Pavelec, including a save off Jakub Voracek that will be up for save of the year. The Flyers outshot the Jets 18-5 in the third and, as the crowd at the MTS Centre came to its feet anticipating the win, the Flyers got a goal from Wayne Simmonds with 10 seconds left to tie it, sending it to overtime. With the way Pavelec was playing, and with Ilya Bryzgalov struggling (first three Jets goals on 14 shots), you felt if the Jets can get to a shootout, they could pull this one out. However, a centre-ice turnover led to Jaromir Jagrs record-setting 16th overtime winner and the Flyers had their win. Shots from the start of the third to the end of the game favoured the Flyers 24-6, and overall 55-26. That is the most shots the Jets have given up this season. On a positive note, the Jets power play went 3-for-3, scoring on the only shot they had on each man-advantage. Going back to the Avs game Sunday, the Jets power play has now scored on five straight opportunities. Tim Stapleton drew an assist on each power play goal for a career-high three-point night. It was the third straight game a Jet has recorded at least three points, the other two going to Blake Wheeler. Also, it was the third straight game a Jet scored two goals with the last two games by Bryan Little. Byfuglien now has 11 points in seven games, Little picked up two assists for his third straight two-point game, giving him 7-3-10 in the last 10 games. Giroux had 10 shots on goal, James Van Riemsdyk seven, showing the Jets were not as good defensively as they needed to be. Players viewed this in different ways. "They threw a lot at the net, so shots were misleading. Tough loss and you feel for Pav. He was great," said Kane. From Wheeler, "we let it slip away with nine seconds, after Pav was terrific. Its disappointing. Somethings not acceptable on our part considering what was at stake." Stapleton felt the power play did some good things, "but there was a lack of defensive coverage. We are a better defensive team than we showed. Were better than that." As for head coach Claude Noel, its back to what we mentioned off the top. "I will not pound on my players over this one. Disappointed we lost, happy with the point. Pavelec was the best player on the ice. Did we deserve two points, you can be the judge of that," said the coach in his post-game news conference. "They make a lot of great plays, but we didnt defend as well as we can. Well take the positives. Three power play goals, seven points out of the last eight, I was very impressed with Pav. We dont want to get too demoralized. Recovering from this is not an issue. We have another game Thursday and well focus on that." Zach Bogosian was again out of the lineup with an upper-body injury, while Antti Miettinen and Mark Flood were healthy scratches. Alonzo Mourning Jersey . Though the 26-year-old said he was able to participate, coach Dwane Casey kept Johnson out as a precaution. Josh McRoberts Heat Jersey . "Ive got no idea," said Gibbons after the game when asked what Bautista was thinking. "Its not smart, winning baseball and Im sure he wont do it again." If Bautistas read on the situation is any indication, it seems that under similar circumstances, he would do it again.BOSTON -- Paul Pierce got the shot he wanted. Tim Duncan got the result. Duncan prevented Pierce from driving to the basket, forcing him to take a fadeaway jumper that clanged off the rim at the buzzer and the San Antonio Spurs held on for their ninth straight win, 87-86 over Boston on Wednesday night. "It was make or miss. I just didnt want him to go by me," said Duncan, who had 10 points and 16 rebounds. "To be honest with you, he probably got the shot he wanted." Pierce had 15 points and 10 rebounds, but he couldnt manoeuvr into open space after Boston inbounded the ball with 7.9 seconds left. The 6-foot-11 Duncan stayed on him, forcing the 6-foot-7 Pierce to step back near the top of the key for a floater. "I think I got to a good place. Just missed the shot," Pierce said. "These things are not really pre-scripted. You get into pressure situations, sometimes they make and sometimes they dont." Danny Green scored 14 points, and Gary Neal had 13, including a 3-pointer with 2 minutes left that put the Spurs back in front after they blew a 17-point, first-half lead. Rajon Rondo had 17 points and 11 assists for Boston, which had won five in a row. Avery Bradley scored 19 points off the bench for Boston, and Kevin Garnett had 16 points, seven rebounds and five assists. Ray Allen returned after missing six games with a sore right ankle and added seven rebounds and five points, including a 3-pointer in the final minute that brought Boston within a point. Green missed for San Antonio and Garnett got the rebound, but the Celtics couldnt convert. "We were trying to get a Duncan-on-Paaul matchup because we thought we had the speed advantage," Celtics coach Doc Rivers said. Dwyane Wade Authentic Jersey. "But his step-back is what he wants." The Celtics trailed 77-70 with 8:20 left before scoring 13 of the next 17 points to take the lead. San Antonio, which averaged 107 points in the first eight games of its winning streak, had 59 in the first half and 28 in the second. "It was a tale of two halves," Bonner said. "We werent as sharp and didnt make as many shots in the second half, but we still played good defence, we rebounded the ball, kept us in it and made a few plays down the stretch to pull out the win." It was 36-all when the Spurs scored 12 consecutive points, including back-to-back 3-pointers from Matt Bonner. After Bradley snapped the string with a jumper, San Antonio rattled off another seven in a row to make it 55-38. Boston cut it to 11 points by the end of the half and got within four in the third, holding the Spurs to nine points in the quarter. It was two points early in the fourth, and San Antonio led 77-70 before Garnett hit a pair of free throws, Rondo stole the ball and fed it to Bradley for a layup and then Garnett hit a layup to make it a one-point game. Notes: Kentucky coach John Calipari was courtside, two days after winning the NCAA championship. ... Pierce was the Eastern Conferences player of the month for March. He averaged 22 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists while leading the Celtics to a 12-5 record in the month. ... The Spurs were 5 for 8 from 3-point range in the second quarter and 0 for 8 in the third. ...

JUPITER, Fla. nfl jerseys china . -- Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia will return to St. Louis on Sunday to have doctors examine his surgically repaired throwing shoulder, making it unlikely hell be ready for the start of the season. Cardinals general manager John Mozeliak made the announcement on Saturday before a short workout. Garcia underwent season-ending surgery last year after experiencing shoulder pain. Garcias throwing sessions at spring training had been going well until his last outing, when the pain returned. "He just hadnt quite felt right for the last 48 hours," Mozeliak said. "From a medical standpoint, no one thought it was that serious. But it wasnt improving and given how early it is in camp, theres no reason to try to work through something if it might be something larger. We think it is better to get some resolution and have him seen back in St. Louis." The 27-year-old Garcia had been the favourite to become the fifth starter, and lone lefthander, in the rotation. He was 5-2 with a 3.58 ERA last season and won a career-high 13 games in 2010 and 2011. Mozeliak didnt want to speculate on the severity of Garcias injury, but said its "probably unlikely" hell be ready for opening day. He added that some soreness following shoulder surgery is not uncommon. "Any time a pitcher that has thrown as much as he has experiences shoulder pain, goes in and gets a cleanup, its not too hard to imagine that there could be still an uphill battle," Mozeliak said. Garcia had been scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday, but the soreness cancelled those plans. Mozeliak said he expects to know more about Garcias status on Monday. Without Garcia, Carlos Martinez and Joe Kelly, both righthanders, become the likely pitchers to fill the void. The Cardinals could turn to Tyler Lyons should they desire a lefthanded starter. "I dont think its any secret to anybody that having that solid lefthander seems to add a different component to an offence that might be locked in against some righties," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. wholesale jerseys .

SWANSEA -- Emmanuel Adebayor scored twice as Tottenham beat Swansea 3-1 to extend Tim Sherwoods unbeaten Premier League start as manager. Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale . The striker headed Spurs into a 35th-minute lead and tapped in their third in the 71st after Chico Flores own goal. Wilfried Bony hit the bar and had a good penalty appeal for a push by Tottenham captain Michael Dawson turned down in the first half, before getting Swanseas consolation late on. The win moved Tottenham up to fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool. Sherwood has collected 16 out of 18 points since replacing Andre Villas-Boas last month. Swansea remains three points above the relegation zone. Jerseys NFL Cheap . Jake Evans and Travis Wood each scored twic as the Otters defeated the Sarnia Sting 7-3 in Ontario Hockey League action Friday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Free Shipping . -- Rick Porcello is already in his sixth full season in the big leagues, which makes it all the easier to forget that the Tigers right-hander is still just 25 years old.NEW YORK -- Shabazz Napier owed UConn. He could have transferred when academic sanctions barred the Huskies from the NCAA tournament his junior season. But the guard wanted to pay back the school for the joy of a national title his freshman year, for his struggles as a sophomore. Napier sure did that Sunday, carrying UConn back to the Final Four in front of thousands of roaring Huskies fans at Madison Square Garden. He scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half in a 60-54 upset of fourth-seeded Michigan State. The East Regionals most outstanding player hit three huge free throws with 30.6 seconds left, making clutch shot after clutch shot just as Kemba Walker did when Napier was a freshman. The Huskies (30-8) rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to become the first No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985. "His will to win -- you could just see it," said Gary Harris, who led Michigan State with 22 points. "He wasnt going to let his team lose." The Spartans seniors become the first four-year players recruited by Tom Izzo to fail to make a Final Four. "As the game got closer and closer to ending, it was on my mind a lot, every huddle," said big man Adreian Payne, who had 13 points and nine rebounds but was repeatedly pushed to the perimeter by UConns defenders. The undersized Huskies matched Michigan States physical play box-out for box-out, holding the Spartans (29-9) to just six offensive rebounds and six points in the paint. "Were physical, too," said second-year coach Kevin Ollie, who is now 4-0 in the NCAA tournament after replacing mentor Jim Calhoun. "Dont get it mixed up. We are predators out there." UConn dared Michigan State to shoot 3-pointers, and the Spartans nearly made enough, going 11 for 29 from behind the arc. Harris was 4 for 9 on 3s, but his teammates were a combined 10 for 32 from the floor. Trailing 51-49 with more than two minutes left, Michigan State had a chance to tie or take the lead. Payne threw the ball away, and Napier drilled a jumper on the other end. After Paynes free throws pulled the Spartans back within two, Keith Appling was whistled for a foul -- the fifth on Michigan States other senior starter -- for contact with Napier on a 3-point attempt. Napier extended the lead to 56-51, and after Travis Trice missed a 3, Phillip Nolan sllipped free for a dunk that clinched the victory. Cheap Jerseys China. "We got what we deserved today," Izzo said. "I tried to tell these guys that, when you get to the tournament, you got to bring it every second. And today Connecticut did, and we just kind of werent as good as we have been." Ryan Boatright made four steals as Michigan State committed 16 turnovers. Some were caused by UConns quickness, others by poor decisions by the Spartans. Izzo thought his team, a popular pick to win it all after finally getting healthy in March, looked tired. DeAndre Daniels shut down Branden Dawson, who scored 24 points in Michigan States Sweet 16 win over top-seeded Virginia. Dawson attempted just three field goals, making one, to finish with five points. The 6-foot-10, 245-pound Payne hit two long jumpers to put Michigan State up 32-23 less than four minutes into the second half. But Napier started driving, getting the bigger Appling in foul trouble and UConn back in the game. "When Coach looks at me a certain way, I just know I got to be more aggressive," said Napier, who passed Ray Allen for fourth on the Huskies all-time scoring list with 1,925 points. After hitting four straight free throws to tie the score at 32 with 12:38 left, Napier was struck in the face by Harris -- the UConn guard was called for a foul on the play -- and left the court with his nose gushing blood. He was back less than a minute later when Daniels completed a three-point play to give the Huskies the lead for good. Boatrights contested 3-pointer with the shot clock winding down put UConn up 49-39 with less than seven minutes left. The Huskies won their third national title in 2011, but they were ineligible for last years tournament because of previous low scores on the NCAAs academic progress measure. They face Florida in the national semifinals Saturday, and theyll be confident they can beat the No. 1 overall seed. The Gators have won 30 straight, but their last loss was to UConn, 65-64 on Dec. 2. After the Huskies were routed 81-48 by Louisville in the regular-season finale, Ollie showed his players video of that victory to remind them of what happens when they play frenetic defence. "Were going to be well prepared, because I know about these guys heart," Ollie said. "Thats what got us through: It was a heart of a champion, heart of a lion." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : they are yielding 156.5 yards rushing

OBERHOF, Germany -- Alex Harvey shrugged off a broken ski and difficult conditions to win the 4. nfl jerseys china .5-kilometre freestyle prologue for the Tour de Ski on Saturday, beating Canadian teammate Devon Kershaw by 4.1 seconds. Harveys right ski broke early in the race and he was given a replacement from his team. With fog also coming down on the course, the native of St-Ferreol-les-Neiges, Que., covered the distance in nine minutes 3.4 seconds to edge Kershaw. "It feels so good to be back on the podium after a slower start to the season," Harvey said. "My training has felt good, but I have not been able to confirm those good feelings during the races this year. To do that today is a huge relief for me and the entire program." Its the second time that Harvey and Kershaw, form Sudbury, Ont., have shared the World Cup podium in cross-country skiing. The last time came in 2012 when Harvey and Kershaw finished one-three respectively in a prologue race at the World Cup final in Falun, Sweden. While Harvey captured two of the four podium finishes for the Canadian squad last year, Kershaw has been shut out of the medals since Falun. "This is huge today," said Kershaw. "After a difficult season last year, and a vicious start this year, this came as a big surprise today. Im still pretty shocked." Chris Jespersen of Norway was third, 10.2 seconds behind. Ivan Babikov of Canmore, Alta., was 26th at 9:28.2. In the womens prologue, overall cross-country World Cup leader Marit Bjoergen led a 1-2 Norwegian finish in a three-kilometre race. Mild and rainy weather forced organizers to shorten the course and change the format of the competition, a decision that led to the withdrawal of four-time womens Tour winner Justyna Kowalczyk of Poland. The Olympic champion said it was unfair to have five freestyle and only two classical races in the seven-stage event. "The changed program doesnt fit into my Olympic preparations," said Kowalczyk, a classical style specialist. Bjoergen covered the distance in six minutes, 34.4 seconds to leave teammate Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen 1.9 seconds behind. Sylwia Jaskowiec of Poland was seven seconds behind in third. Denise Herrmann of Germany was fourth, ahead of Jessica Diggins of the United states. Daria Gaiazova, of Banff, Alta., was the top Canadian, finishing 37th (7:01.3). Perianne Jones, of Almonte, Alta., placed 47th (7:03.2). The Tour ends in Italy on Jan. 5. cheap jerseys from china .com) - Ralph Sampson was in attendance for Thursday nights ACC showdown between No. wholesale jerseys . "Its very rare when you get 16 hits and no errors and you dont win the game, put it that way," he said. Nelson Cruz hit a grand slam and a solo homer as Baltimore pounded four home runs to outscore Toronto 10-8 on Wednesday night.FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Isaac Sopoaga celebrated his 32nd birthday nearly two months ago. The massive defensive tackle feels like he received a belated gift this week when the New England Patriots acquired him from Philadelphia at the trade deadline. "Today is my daughters fourth birthday, but I feel like yesterday and today is my birthday," he said Wednesday, a day after the deal. "The Patriots, you know, its like a dream come true, to be honest. Respect these guys the last 10 years. They won (the Super Bowl) three times. Its just an awesome feeling." The proven run stopper, who started seven of the Eagles first eight games this season, was brought on to bolster the Patriots depleted defence thats struggled recently against the run. Sopoaga spent the first eight years of his career with the San Francisco 49ers and played in the Super Bowl earlier this year before being signed by Philadelphia as an unrestricted free agent in March. The 6-foot-2, 330-pounder recorded 10 tackles for the Eagles. He has started in 87 of 133 career games with 465 tackles, 7 1/2 sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. "Hes basically played defensive tackle and nose tackle throughout his career," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "Strong guy, physical guy." Sopoaga sure has some big shoes to fill — as well as some developing gaps. New England (6-2) has been without starting defensive tackles Vince Wilfork and Tommy Kelly for the past three weeks. Wilfork, the heart of the defence the last 10 years, was placed on season-ending injured reserve Oct. 3 with a torn right Achilles tendon, and Kelly has been sidelined for the last three games with a knee injury. Middle linebacker and leading tackler Jerod Mayo also was lost for the season, place on injured reserve two weeks ago with a torn pectoral muscle. The Patriots are now preparing for the Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5) with a vastly different defensive cast than they started with in training camp. "Its great to havve all your players and be at full strength. jerseys from china. The reality of it is thats usually not the case. Every team in the league goes through the same thing somewhere along the line," Belichick said. "All the players that are on the team have a role and they have to be ready when theyre called on to perform that role. "We have to be able to adjust during the game when those situations occur or during the week or during the year if its a long-term thing." The Patriots have acclimated to life without their stalwart linemen by leaning heavily on rookies Chris Jones and Joe Vellano. They also signed 34-year-old defensive end Andre Carter last week in the hope the 12-year veteran can rekindle some of the success he experienced in his lone season with the team in 2011, when he registered 10 sacks. In addition to their veteran leadership, Carter and Sopoaga both will be counted on to shore up a rushing defence that ranks 31st in the league at 130.8 yards per game, ahead of only winless Jacksonville. Prior to the losses of Wilfork and Kelly, the Patriots were allowing 105 yards rushing per game and had permitted just one touchdown rushing through the first four games. Over their last four, including both losses, they are yielding 156.5 yards rushing — much of it up the middle — and three touchdowns. The second half of the season appears to be getting brighter, though. Kelly returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since getting hurt Oct. 6 against Cincinnati, and Sopoaga is eager to get started with the team he was shocked to be traded to. "When I found out yesterday, I was with the Eagles and then after I had to drive to South Jersey so I could pack my stuff and then get ready," Sopoaga said. "On the highway, even though it was like a 50 (miles per hour) speed limit, us Samoan people, we go double the speed limit. "I was surprised, and something Ive got to live with, Ive got to do, Ive got to face, and you know, got to win." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

CALGARY -- The Calgary Stampeders have signed offensive lineman Pierre Lavertu, the No. Womens Pat Tillman Jersey . 1 overall selection at the 2014 CFL draft. Lavertu, a 300-pound Quebec City native, was a four-time Quebec conference all-star and three-time CIS all-Canadian at Laval.

Justin Houston, their talented young pass rusher, is entering the final year of his rookie deal. Hes due to make only $1.4 million, a bargain for a linebacker who has piled up 26 1/2 sacks in three seasons. And in whats believed to be a negotiating ploy, Houston not only skipped three weeks of voluntary workouts, but hes also skipping this weeks three-day minicamp. The Chiefs practiced Tuesday for the first time since releasing cornerback Brandon Flowers. The move last Friday saves the Chiefs about $7.25 million against the salary cap this season and $7.5 million next season, money that could be used in a deal for Houston. Of course, the Chiefs have two other pending free agents in quarterback Alex Smith and centre Rodney Hudson. That means they might have to get creative if they want to keep all of them. In the meantime, first-round pick Dee Ford got first-team reps in place of Houston during Tuesdays practice. Marcus Cooper and Ron Parker split time at cornerback in place of Flowers and fellow starter Sean Smith, who was excused from the workout with an illness. "Every day I go out there as if Im the starter, so I cant say its any different if (Flowers) is here or isnt here," Cooper said. "Just keep grinding, getting better every day." Cooper was a revelation early last season, a seventh-round pick claimed off waivers from San Francisco who wound up starting six games and picking off three passes. He went through a rookie luull midseason, but came on toward the end, giving the Chiefs front office a sense of confidence that they would be able to withstand Flowers release. Frostee Rucker Jersey. . Still, the change brings even more instability to the defensive backfield. The Chiefs already had allowed starting free safety Kendrick Lewis and backup defensive back Quintin Demps to sign elsewhere, opening a couple of holes they are hoping to fill internally. Husain Abdullah and Sanders Commings appear to be the first in line. "We have guys who can step up," Commings said. Tight end Travis Kelce, wide receiver Kyle Williams and cornerback David Van Dyke did individual workouts and the install period, but were otherwise limited. Kelce is coming off knee surgery, Williams a torn ACL and Van Dyke a hamstring injury. Rookie running back DeAnthony Thomas appeared to be overcome by the heat and humidity on a warm afternoon. He chugged water on a knee after one series of plays, then took a swing pass to the end zone, where he collapsed. He wound up walking to the shade and spent several minutes with a trainer before heading to the locker room. He did not return to the field. Thomas, a fourth-round pick out of Oregon, has been unable to join the Chiefs for workouts since rookie minicamp because of an NFL rule that prohibited him from working out until his school graduates. Oregon is on the quarter system, so that didnt happen until this past weekend. The Chiefs also had four players in for tryouts on Tuesday: former Rutgers wide receiver Mark Harrison, Cal Poly wide receiver Cole Stanford, Utah State cornerback Quinton Byrd and Missouri cornerback Kip Edwards. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : coaching style led to his decision to retire,

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Kevin Durant displayed his usual dominance as a scorer, and the Thunder supported him with one of their best defensive performances of the season. Nike Roshe Run Suede Heren . Durant scored 29 points to help Oklahoma City beat the Sacramento Kings 94-81 on Friday night. Durants high-scoring ways have been wasted at times by the Thunder, who lost 128-119 at Dallas on Tuesday despite 43 points by the NBAs leading scorer. This time, the Thunder held Sacramento to 51 points and 30 per cent shooting through the first three quarters. Durant could have done more damage, but he sat for good with 1:25 left in the third and the Thunder firmly in control. "Lately, weve been much better defensively and offensively," he said. "So, tonight was a good game. We put both sides of the floor together pretty well." Durant has scored at least 25 points in 37 consecutive games, the longest streak since Michael Jordans 40-game run for the Chicago Bulls during the 1986-87 season. Russell Westbrook had 18 points and six assists and Jeremy Lamb added 13 points for the Thunder, who have won five of six. The Thunder have held their opponent to 96 or fewer points in four of the five wins. "We put ourselves in position, if we defend, to win every game," Westbrook said. Ben McLemore scored 18 points and Travis Outlaw added 17 for the Kings. DeMarcus Cousins, who entered the game ranked 10th in the league in scoring, finished with four points on 2-for-8 shooting while dealing with foul trouble. Rudy Gay, who averages 20 points per game, finished with seven on 3-for-11 shooting. "Not one guy could take credit for stopping Gay or Cousins, so we just try to do it together and rely on each other, and we did a good job," Durant said. Sacramento point guard Isaiah Thomas missed his second straight game with a right quad contusion. In two games against the Thunder this season, he averaged 31 points and 4.5 assists while shooting 56 per cent from the field. Thomas scored a career-high 38 points against Oklahoma City on Jan. 19. Without him, the Kings shot 37 per cent from the field in one of their worst offensive performances of the season. "The toughest position to lose is your point guard, just because he runs your team, and there were times tonight where obviously, we didnt look like an organized basketball team," Kings coach Michael Malone said. Oklahoma City bolted to a 32-15 lead at the end of the first quarter after holding the Kings to 26 per cent shooting, and the Thunder led 54-38 at halftime. Durant scored 16 points in the first half on just six shot attempts. Sacramentos starters shot 7 for 28 from the field before the break. Cousins had two points on 1-for-3 shooting in the first half in just seven minutes because of foul trouble. Durant surpassed 25 points on a 3-pointer in the third quarter, and then his lob to Westbrook for a dunk on Oklahoma Citys next possession gave the Thunder a 77-51 lead. Oklahoma City led 82-51 at the end of the quarter. "We did a good job of focusing in," Westbrook said. "We did a great job of just focusing on us and focusing on our team and trying not to worry about them so much." No Kings player reached double figures in scoring until McLemore made two free throws with 10:27 remaining in the fourth. "We are undermanned, we dont have a lot of bodies, so the guys who are able to play need to play with more of a sense of urgency and greater effort," Malone said. NOTES: Thunder C Hasheem Thabeet inadvertently deflected a ball off the backboard and into the hoop for the Kings in the first quarter. ... Westbrook scored 10 points in nine minutes in the first quarter. ... Westbrook was issued a technical foul in the second quarter for punching the ball and making it go out of bounds. Oklahoma Citys Serge Ibaka got a technical in the first minute of the third quarter. ... Thunder G Reggie Jackson sat out with a mid-back sprain. ... Thunder G Reggie Williams played for the second time this season after recently signing a 10-day contract. ... Kings F Derrick Williams did not play due to illness. ... Kings rookie G Ray McCallum got his second career start in Thomas place. Nike Air Max 90 Dames . Thiago launched himself at Rafinhas cross to volley the ball inside the far corner from a difficult angle in the third minute of stoppage time in the sides rescheduled game. Bayern substitute Claudio Pizarro scored with a header from Thiagos free kick in the 76th minute, cancelling out Vedad Ibisevics 29th-minute opener for the home side. Nike Roshe Run Heren Sale . Sterling wasnt there to witness the 113-103 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday, and he wont be at future games. The Clippers stirring victory at energized Staples Center came hours after NBA Commissioner Adam Silver banned Sterling for life, fined him $2.The four-team FXFLs first season is over, and the developmental leagues founder is eager to get started on Year 2.I think we had a great first season, given the accelerated timeframe we operated under, says Brian Woods, commissioner of the league. We are very pleased at the response from the public. This model has proven itself. We believe we have something that works, with utilization of minor league baseball parks and the sponsorships weve created.Two of the FXFLs four franchises, the Brooklyn Bolts and Omaha Mammoths, drew decent-sized crowds to such stadiums. The Boston Brawlers didnt fare quite so well, and the Blacktips were a road-only team.Woods also was satisfied with the media reach the league had through regional sports networks and ESPN3. There were 80 million households who get those regional channels, and ESPN3 is available in about 90 million households.Most of the leagues players were cut by NFL teams before the season, and a handful wound up on NFL rosters or practice squads even as the FXFL was playing its short season. That, after all, was the idea in the first place.At the end of the day, we are a developmental league, Woods says. If some players needed current game film, they got it. There is real merit to having a developmental league.So much so that Woods envisions a bigger league in 2015, with more affiliations with minor league baseball teams and stadia. Hes targeting such cities as Memphis, Austin, Oklahoma City and somewhere in Florida. Woods also expects Brooklyn and Omaha to return.I want it to be a manageable expansion, ensure the product on the field will remain solid and something the fans will have an interest in, he says.OUT OF THIN AIR: Miami Dolphins defensive lineman Jared Odrick prepared for Sundays game at mile-high Denver with a hunting trip to Utah.Odrick and a friend shot coyote and hiked last weekend in the mountains near Randolph, which is at 6,300 feet — higher than Denver.Ive played in altitude before, Odrick said. It can be different if you want it to be. Its just another thing to overcome.Odricks mini-vacation was possible because the Dolphins had last weekend off following a Thursday night win over the Bills.CHAMPS TAKE: Although the only football Champ Bailey plays now is fantasy, he still has a scouts eye on the game he played for 15 seasons. He has faith in his former team getting right back on the Super Bowl Express.The Broncos (7-3) have lost two of their last three in large part because their makeshift offensive line cant keep Peyton Manning upright or jumpstart the ground game.Bailey, who officially retired this week, starting the countdown to his likely Hall of Fame speech, said angst-ridden Broncos fans should relax.Well, I think up front, theyre going to find something theyre comfortable with. They have to. Obviously, theyve made some changes. But theyll be good, Bailey said. I know the defence looks better than what we had last year. So, thats really the key: Dont turn the ball over, and get turnovers. They do that, they win. Too much talent not to.Theres never a good time for a slump, but better now than later, Bailey said.Its happened at the right time, not in the playofffs, Bailey said. Nike Air Max 90 Goedkoop Bestellen. This league, its about as tight as it gets. I swear, six or seven weeks ago, youre talking about Seattle is the best thing you ever seen. Now, what do you think?New England was in trouble then, too.Exactly: Whats wrong with Brady? They cant keep plugging guys in, Bailey said. Its week to week. Cant get too high or too low — on anybody, I dont care who they are.Therefore, Bailey still likes Denvers chances to hoist the Lombardi Trophy, warts and all.Very good chances, Bailey said. There are a lot of teams with good chances, but if theyre playing the best they can play, they can win it, easily.PREPPING FOR SPEED: Tennessee defensive co-ordinator Ray Horton has never coached against Philadelphia with coach Chip Kellys fast-paced offence. So he tried something a little different to help prep the Titans for visiting the Eagles on Sunday.He went to the tape. No, not the coaches version with all the breaks between plays edited out. He showed them a copy of the TV broadcast, complete with Troy Aikman, from the Eagles 53-20 loss at Green Bay last week.So they get the tempo and how fast everything goes, Horton said. I think if you havent seen it, and I havent seen it in person, I think our guys now have an idea of what it is because theyve seen it actually like they were there just watching it on TV. They wont be surprised or shocked. I dont think they will be. I think we have a great game plan in how were going to do it and what we do and well be ready to go.Defensive coaches will watch a copy of the TV broadcast to pick up a quarterbacks cadence. But with the Eagles, Horton didnt care about the words, simply the speed and tempo that offence runs so none of the Titans are caught off-guard by just how quickly Philadelphia moves.But you still have to experience how fast it is, Horton said.ELI-TIKI TIFF: Eli Manning didnt like it a couple of years ago when former teammate Tiki Barber took a shot at him over his leadership abilities. And he didnt like it when Barber said in a recent radio interview that coach Tom Coughlin should be fired.Thats very nice of him, Manning said. Its good to hear from Ol Tiki.The Giants (3-7) have lost five straight games and are in danger of missing the playoffs for a third straight season.Manning said he didnt hear all of Barbers comments but got the gist of what he was saying, noting everyone has the right to his opinion.The 33-year-old Manning said the comment wont affect the players or the coaches.Well, I think it depends on kind of what your opinion of the player is, Manning said. I think that can make a big difference in how you react to it.Barber has fallen into disfavour with Giants fans for saying that Mannings leadership was somewhat comical. Barber later added that Coughlins tough coaching style led to his decision to retire, which he announced in the middle of the 2006 season.The Giants and Manning won Super Bowls after the 2007 and 11 seasons.___AP Pro Football Writers Barry Wilner, Teresa M.

CHARLOTTE, N. NZ-H052 Shoes Womens Nike Air Max 2015 Pink Green Black .C. - Kemba Walker didnt know whether to celebrate or breathe a sigh of relief.So he did a little of both.Walkers driving left-handed layup as time expired lifted Charlotte to a 103-102 win Friday night over the New York Knicks, snapping the Hornets 10-game losing streak.Walker finished with 11 points on 4-of-15 shooting, but his second game-winner of the season saved the Hornets the embarrassment of squandering a 20-point lead for the third time.We needed the win, coach Steve Clifford said. Its been three weeks since we won — and we won the most close games in the league last year.The Hornets havent had that same success this season.Hopefully we can build off this, Walker said.Walker received a half-court inbounds pass with 4 seconds left around the top of the key, faked to the right and blew past Pablo Prigioni, finding an open crease down the left side of the lane. The right-handed Walker put the ball up with his left hand over Amare Stoudemire and off the glass for the winner, sending the Knicks to their seventh straight loss.I didnt have much time and I knew I had to get to the basket in a hurry, Walker said.Walker said he thought Prigioni was overplaying the screen, leading to an open lane to the basket. With a foul to give, Prigioni reached for Walkers jersey, but couldnt grab him.We probably could have kept the ball in front of us a little better, Knicks coach Derek Fisher said.It was the second heartbreaking defeat for the Knicks in two nights. They lost 90-87 at home to LeBron James and the Cavaliers on Thursday.A loss is a loss and you never feel good about a loss, Anthony said. To come back down 20 and to take the lead by one and have 4 seconds to go, I dont think you can ask for more than that. Kemba made a great play at the end and I take my hat off to him.The Knicks were outrebounded 41-34 and fell behind 80-60 late in the third quarter.Once (the deficit) was so bad we didnt have any choice but to compete, Fisher said. It is good they showed that, but it was too late.Gerald Henderson scored a season-high 22 points and Al Jefferson had 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Hornets.The Knicks stormed back from 20 down late in the third quarter behind 32 points from Carmelo Anthony to take the lead with less than a minute left. But Anthony missed a mid-range jumper and the Hornets grabbed the rebound to set up the winning shot.The Hornets (5-15) led 80-60 near the end of the third after holding Anthony to two points on 1-of-4 shooting in the quarter.That changed in a hurry.Anthony scored 15 points in the fourth period, including back-to-back 3-pointers — one that gave the Knicks a one-point lead with 47 seconds left.Charlotte extended its lead to 20 in the third quarter after Henderson started heating up and Jefferson took control in the low post with a series of old-school, up-and-under moves that Stoudemire struggled to defend.J.R. Smith had 14 points for the struggling Knicks (4-17).___TIP-INSKnicks: Samuel Dalembert started for the Knicks even though Quincy Acy was the announced starter before the game.Hornets: Walker may only be 6-foot-1, but he had a big block when he swiped Jose Calderons shot into the seats. ...

He followed up a 20-point effort against Chicago with 16 points, six rebounds and six assists against New York.

Topic : – Times this season the Leafs have

At the morning skate, head coach Randy Carlyle insisted Tuesdays poor effort against the Florida Panthers would not be soon forgotten, calling for a bounce back performance on Thursday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. David Amerson Youth Jersey . After a similarly dubious start – failing to register a shot until the 9:50 mark of the first period – the Leafs turned things around, controlling much of the final 50 minutes en route to a 4-1 victory. "Huge, big," said Jonathan Bernier on the importance of the win. "I thought we started slow a little bit but when we got that power play we got our legs and momentum back." While the Leafs did not score on the power play late in the first period, it did shift the play into the Lightning end consistently for the first time after Toronto was on their heels in their own zone for much of the first ten minutes. "Definitely," said Carlyle, agreeing that that was when the momentum turned. "We didnt have anything going for ourselves but then we hemmed them in their zone, we had the puck in their zone for probably a minute and a half. Didnt score on it but we created some momentum for ourselves and thats when we started to play." The win brought the Leafs to within one point of the Lightning for second place in the Atlantic Division with one game remaining for each team prior to the Olympic break. "Well outside of the first ten minutes, I thought we played a pretty solid game," said Carlyle. "We gave up some chances but we created some chances with our forecheck and we were opportunistic in the hockey game. We needed a response from our effort the other night and we got it tonight." Five Points  1) Shifting The Lines For the second straight game, Carlyle experimented with his line combinations, this time right from the start. Dressing eleven forwards (only three centres) and seven defencemen, Carlyle found a recipe that yielded three dangerous lines throughout the game. van Riemsdyk - Bozak - KesselLupul - Kadri - ClarksonRaymond - Kulemin - BodieMcLaren - McClement Gunnarsson - PhaneufGardiner - FransonRielly - GleasonRanger Carlyle employed Jay McClement on the second and third lines in key defensive zone faceoff situations and cycled Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul and David Clarkson through as the extra wingers on the fourth line. "We tried to create a little more balance," said Carlyle. "With Clarkson coming back into the line up, we felt we could move him up. Kulemin going to the middle allowed him to use his strength and ability to get on pucks. Bodies been playing very well and we felt that we owed him more minutes and when you have Mason Raymond on that line, they can create things." The experiment, which Carlyle indicated had been considered for a couple of days, paid off for the Leafs with each of the top three lines contributing a goal. 2) Gleason, Bernier Take Umbrage To JT Brown With less than two minutes left, JT Brown drove to the net with the puck, running over Jonathan Bernier, creating a scrum behind the net after Bernier and then Gleason took offence. "Its a 4-1 game and theres a minute and a half left and you can see hes doing it on purpose to run into me," said Bernier. "I just didnt like that move." "I guess he could pull up a little bit, didnt look like he was stopping anytime soon," added Gleason, who drew praise from Bernier for stepping in to defend him. The ruckus even drew Lightning netminder Cedrick Desjardins from his net but Bernier admitted he never had a notion to engage him. "Yeah I saw him, but at this point in the season, you dont want to get hurt," said the Leafs goalie. "You have to make the right decision." 3) Paul Ranger Returns To Tampa Paul Ranger had not played since January 7 against the New York Islanders – a span of 14 games – but drew back in against the Lightning when Randy Carlyle opted to dress seven defencemen. Making the return even more significant was the fact that it came in the building Ranger spent the first five years and 270 games of his NHL career before taking a three year sabbatical from the NHL. "Heck yeah it does, a lot," Ranger said on TSN 1050 Radio at the first intermission when asked if his return to Tampa meant anything extra to him. Ranger said he got the news that he would play just before the warm up, a gesture from Randy Carlyle that he sincerely appreciated. "I thanked (Carlyle) for letting me play in this game and giving me an opportunity to contribute," Ranger said after the game. 4) Gleason Gives His Dad a Show Eleven years in the NHL has afforded Tim Gleason the opportunity to bring his dad Kevin on several team road trips. But they hadnt been fruitful trips until tonight. "Long story short, my Dads been on about seven or eight of these ("Dads trips") and we have yet to win one until tonight," said Gleason. "So Im going to have a beer with my dad on the plane." 5) Gone Fishing The Maple Leafs took advantage of their afternoon between games in the Sunshine State on Wednesday to embark on a fishing trip with their fathers organized by Paul Ranger, who became familiar with the sights in Tampa Bay during his five season spent with the Lightning. "I havent done much fishing in my lifetime; I was kind of a newbie," said Nazem Kadri, who caught a small shark. "But it was fun, especially being out with the guys, pretty much the whole team went so it was good just to be surrounded with that environment and have some fun with it." Accompanied on the trip by expert guides, Cody Franson explained that he enjoyed learning about some of the strategy behind successful fishing. "Fishing with guides, it was pretty interesting to see the sport behind fishing," he said. "We go fishing back home and sometimes you go out for three or four hours and dont catch anything but these guys, its a game for them and they know what theyre doing out there." Jake Gardiner, who grew up in Minnetonka, Minnesota, said his father John is far more of an experienced fisherman than he is, though he had some success of his own, with a couple of different bites. Holding onto them proved harder than catching them though. "I was surprised about how slimy those things were," Jake explained. "I dropped it once and could barely hold onto it the second time. Its not like fishing in Minnesota, theyre a lot slimier here, I think they need that to survive."

The Canucks beat the Leafs 4-0 on November 2 in their previous meeting, the same game David Bolland went down with a severed tendon. Matt Jones Redskins Jersey . The move is retroactive to March 23. The Nationals made the announcement in finalizing their opening day roster after their scheduled exhibition game against the Detroit Tigers was cancelled because of rain. Tracy Porter Jersey . -- Rick Porcello is already in his sixth full season in the big leagues, which makes it all the easier to forget that the Tigers right-hander is still just 25 years old.ST. PAUL, Minn – On many nights this season, terrific goaltending and special teams lifted the Leafs to victory where it might not have been deserved. That was nearly the case once more at Xcel Energy Center on Wednesday night, but, in this instance, a win slipped away. “We got what we deserved,” said Carl Gunnarsson, bluntly in conversation with the Leaf Report after a 2-1 shootout loss to the Wild. “I just mean if you look at the game all over, 65 minutes, we didnt deserve more than one point.” In a game that saw Nazem Kadri ejected, Jonathan Bernier brilliant once more and both special teams units back on the mark, the Leafs ultimately tripped up in the waning moments, their collective ineffectiveness to that point ultimately bringing about a deserved fate. “Were not happy about it,” Gunnarsson said of his teams play, “but we couldve had two points. We had the chance and we didnt take it. But if you look over the whole game, we didnt deserve more.” Stuck with just one even-strength goal in the past four games, the Leafs failed to generate much of an attack for the better part of two periods against the Wild. But with a power-play goal from Mason Raymond in the second, excellence from Bernier and the penalty kill, they actually led late and appeared on course for two points. It was then, with less than five minutes, to go that a Phil Kessel defensive zone giveaway landed in the hands of Charlie Coyle. Punishing the error, Zach Parise would even the score at one before capping it with the shootout winner a short while later. “We have the puck under control in our zone, we cough it up and it ends up in our net,” Randy Carlyle said of the game-tying goal afterward. Moments earlier, the Leafs had killed off a mammoth five-minute Wild power-play – Kadri given a match penalty for his hit on Mikael Granlund (more in Five Points) – with Minnesota managing just a single shot opposite an aggressive and impactful penalty kill. And so, while not playing up to their desired standard, the Leafs had put themselves in position for victory only to fumble it away. “Yeah for sure,” said Raymond. “That stings a bit.” It was perhaps due karma. Only a month earlier, the Leafs were outshot 37-14 by the Wild at home, escaping with victory on the shoulders of a 36-save performance from James Reimer, two power-play goals and a near-perfect effort on the penalty kill. Holding three of his seven career shutouts against the Wild, Bernier was busy and effective as he has been all season. The 25-year-old stopped 33 of 34 shots, beaten only by Parise on an unlikely ricochet attempt in front. Troubling for the Leafs was the amount of time they spent defending rather than initiating the play as was desired – the Wild out-attempted them by a 70-43 margin. A focal point of attention for Carlyle in the early weeks this season and especially the past few days, the short stock of Toronto forwards (they dressed only 11, lost Kadri and played without Colton Orr and Carter Ashton in the third) were unable to consistently pressure the Minnesota defence, rarely generating much offence against Josh Harding, who replaced Niklas Backstrom early in the first. “We didnt really have that [offensive] zone time,” Gunnarsson said. “We didnt cycle the puck a whole lot, [we were] kind of receiving the game. They moved the puck down low on us and played a whole bunch in our end.” Heroics from the goaltenders and fine special teams play bailed out those inconsistencies amid a successful start, but not on this night. Five Points 1. Kadris eventful night Charging hard into the Wild crease early in the first, Kadri leveled Backstrom with what appeared to be an elbow and was whistled for the first of three penalties. Soaking up plenty of ice in the opening 40 minutes – he led Leaf forwards with upwards of 15 minutes – the 23-year-old would get the gate for good midway through the third. Kadri delivered a crunching hit to Granlund along the boards in the neutral zone for which he was given a match penalty. “He made initial contact with the shoulder and the kid had the head down and he didnt have his arms up and he ran into the player,” said Carlyle, clearly not in agreement with the punishment. For his collision with Backstrom, Kadri will garner a hearing with the NHLs department of discipline on Thursday afternoon. At his best on the edge, Kadri may have crossed a line. “Naz is a very skilled player,” said Dion Phaneuf, “but he plays with an edge and he plays hard. I think thats a big thing thats unique about him is that he doesnt just have those very soft hands and playmaking ability, but hes a physical guy. Kai Forbath Womens Jersey. ” Already short Tyler Bozak and Dave Bolland, a suspension to Kadri would further damage the Leafs down the middle. 2. Five-on-five woes continue The Leafs were one of the leagues most potent teams at full strength last season. They scored 105 goals, trailing only the Lightning, Blackhawks and Penguins. So far this season, however, theyve not been nearly as successful. The Leafs boast the 20th-ranked five-on-five offence (29 goals,) failing to score an even-strength goal for the third time in four games against the Wild on Wednesday night. 3. Clarksons drought The goal drought reached eight games for David Clarkson. The 29-year-old hasnt scored yet as a Leaf, totaling just one assist thus far. “I think thats going to start soon,” said Clarkson optimistically before the game. “Start burning some incense here in my stall.” The Leafs werent counting exclusively on potent offence from their marquee offseason addition, but some level of contribution was to be expected for a player who scored 45 goals over the past two seasons. Clarkson has had opportunities, including a glorious chance against his former team last week. But rather than trickle across the goal-line, his attempt on Cory Schneider wobbled wide right. “I think if youre getting chances and youre getting good quality chances, then I think youre doing something right,” Clarkson said, noting the ability to contribute elsewhere if pucks werent finding twine. One easy cure would be to shoot the puck more often, something the Toronto native made mention of himself. During his final two seasons in New Jersey, Clarkson averaged 3.19 shots per game, but in his first eight games as a Leaf, hes down to just two per game. A primary power-play contributor with the Devils, Clarkson is additionally beginning to see more time on the man advantage with the Leafs, with the injuries to Bozak and Bolland opening up opportunity. “Hes had chances and I think its part of our responsibility to try and support him with some of the power-play situations, maybe move him up and down in the lineup, play with more offensive players,” Carlyle said, with Clarkson matched with Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul against the Wild. “Theres no better cure for a guy that hasnt scored is to continue to move up the lineup and play with your better players and get power-play time.” 4. Kadri at even-strength Kadri has interestingly dipped most in terms of even-strength offence. He accrued 82 per cent of his offence in such situations last season, his 36 points leading the team. But after 18 games this fall, his production there has taken nearly a 20 per cent hit. Kadri has just eight of his 13 points at even-strength (62 per cent) with the power-play a source of increased productivity.       5. JVR Down the middle Wednesday marked the third career game at centre for James van Riemsdyk. One difference in playing down the middle, according to the 24-year-old, is positioning in transition offensively. “Its a little different,” he said. “When youre coming on the rush youre usually in the middle versus being on the wall; youre usually looking to kick it wide and maybe drive or whatever; youre not usually going to pull up in the middle of the ice and just stop there because then youll turn it over. “Thats usually why the wingers in general get more shots than centre iceman do," van Riemsdyk said. After mustering just a single shot in the previous two games, van Riemsdyk finished with four shots against the Wild, but remained pointless at centre ice. A temporary stopgap when Bolland suffered an ankle injury, he may get the move back to wing soon enough. Out since Oct. 25 with a hamstring injury, Bozak skated for the first time on Tuesday and could be in line to return in the next couple weeks. The 27-year-old is eligible to come of long-term injured reserve on Nov. 21. All of that could change, of course, with a Kadri suspension. Stat-Pack 30 – Faceoffs for Jerred Smithson against the Wild, winning 53 per cent. 23:27 – Ice-time for Jay McClement, a season-high. 70-43 – Shot attempts favouring the Wild. 29 – Total goals for the Leafs at five-on-five. .939 – Save percentage for Jonathan Bernier after 12 games this season. 15 – Times this season the Leafs have been outshot by an opponent.

Topic : Wittman wasnt pleased with how his team close

The Vancouver Canucks have reportedly bought out forward David Booth. Kyle Lowry Raptors Jersey . The 29-year-old was due $4.75 million in the remaining year of the six-year contract he signed with the Florida Panthers prior to the 2009-10 season. He was placed on waivers by the Canucks on Tuesday for the purposes of a buyout and cleared Wednesday at noon et. Vancouver has used the second of their compliance buyouts on Booth as per an NHL.com report. "We wish David all the success in the future and thank him for his contributions with the Canucks," general manager Jim Benning said in a statement on Tuesday. Booth scored just nine goals and 10 assists in 66 games with the Canucks last season. Vancouver originally acquired Booth from the Panthers in 2011 along with Steven Reinprecht and third-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft in exchange for Mikael Samuelsson and Marco Sturm. Originally selected in the second round (53rd overall) by the Florida Panthers at the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Booth has scored 113 goals and 105 assists in 443 career games. Custom Raptors Jersey .ca.

"Our level of work has to go up," said Carlyle on Thursday. "Weve stated that and weve (told) our players that the message is going to start to be delivered in a different manner if were not going to get the results that were looking for. WASHINGTON -- The Washington Wizards are inching closer to their first playoff spot since 2008 and can earn a post-season berth Sunday if the Golden State Warriors beat the New York Knicks. After the Wizards sloppy 101-97 win over the free-falling Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night, they insisted theyre not looking ahead -- at least not publicly. "If the Knicks lose, Ill be more excited. Id know Id be playing in the playoffs," John Wall said. Wall scored 25 points and Drew Gooden added 16 for Washington, which is sixth in the Eastern Conference. Wall scored 13 points in the last 7:16 of the third quarter and the Wizards finally escaped the pesky Hawks, who have lost six straight and 20 of 26. Jeff Teague scored 19 points and Paul Millsap 17 for Atlanta. Washington had to overcome a slow start coming off its impressive 13-point win over Eastern Conference leader Indiana on Friday to beat the Hawks, who lead the Knicks by 1 1/2 games for the final playoff berth in the East. They also had to deal with the effects of a Saturday afternoon hockey game at the Verizon Center. Because of the Washington Capitals game with the Boston Bruins, the starting time of the Wizards game was pushed back an hour. The changeover left the floor slippery and may have caused a groin injury to Washington forward Trevor Ariza. "Good thing nobody got seriously injured, but we got to work on that. Somebody couldve really got hurt. We got to keep ourselves safe," Ariza said. "I tried to play the game as fast as I can all the time, but after I fell and slipped, I slowed down for sure." He finished with 13 points. Bradley Beal had 14. "That floor was awful tonight. I apologize for that," coach Randy Wittman said. Washington led 99-89 with 2:38 to play, but the Hawks scored eight straight including three free throws by Lou Williams and a three-point play by Teague with 39.8 to play. Teagues three points came immediately after Wall missed two foul shots. With the Wizards leading 99-97,, Marcin Gortat blocked Teagues shot with 11. Vince Carter Raptors Jersey. 1 seconds left. Gooden was fouled by Teague and hit two free throws to secure the win. "We call this fatigue. We call this fatigue and too relaxed. Im glad we won that game. Otherwise, Id probably shoot myself at home," Gortat said. He had 12 points and 11 rebounds. Wittman wasnt pleased with how his team closed out the game. "Disappointed in that, but theres not a bad win in this league. Well take the win," Wittman said. Atlanta coach Mike Budenholzer, whose team played well despite missing three of its five leading scorers, had been hoping for a comeback. "Its amazing how long an NBA game is and what can happen in the last two minutes," Budenholzer said. The game was interrupted countless times by the condensation, which seemed to bother Wizards players more than Hawks. It was reminiscent of a Jan. 11 game that featured two lengthy stoppages when a heavy rainstorm hit the area and delayed Washingtons game with Houston. The Hawks started hot, hitting seven of their first eight shots and running out to a 21-11 advantage, but Washington got eight late points from Gooden, outscoring the Hawks 16-7 in the last 4:31 to lead 28-27 after one. Thanks to nine points in the last five minutes by Pero Antic, Atlanta led 52-50 at halftime. Walls third-quarter offensive display gave the Wizards a 75-71 lead after going into the fourth. NOTES: Washington F/C Nene, who has missed 17 games with a left knee sprain is progressing, though Wittman isnt guessing when he may return. "Hes going on the floor a little bit, on his own, just kind of getting on his legs a little bit," Wittman said. "Where that takes us I dont know. Hes going in a good direction." ... Atlanta was without G/F Kyle Korver (back spasms) and G DeMarre Carroll (stomach virus). ...

Topic : " Longoria was sidelined by a strained left oblique

MEMPHIS, Tenn. http://www.maxshoecheap.me.uk/nike-free-3-0/nike-free-3-0-run-2s.html . -- Ben Crane has waited so long to contend for another PGA Tour title that being patient through weather delays is no problem at all. Staying atop the leaderboard into the third round helps. Crane went more than 28 hours between competitive shots due to weather delays, and he was at 13 under with a four-stroke lead through six holes Saturday when another storm stopped play again at the St. Jude Classic. "What an opportunity I have," Crane said. "Certainly at the beginning of the week I never thought I would have been here, so Ill just try to go home relax, get some food in me and sleep as fast as I can because we got to come back out at 7 a.m. and restart tomorrow." Troy Merritt, a group ahead of Crane, was at 9 under, with playing partner Peter Malnati at 8 under. Billy Horschel, Retief Goosen and Camilo Villegas were 7 under on their front nines. Phil Mickelson, who hasnt won in 19 straight events dating to the British Open, had pars on each of his first nine holes and was at 5 under. Hes one of many players using the event to tune up for the U.S. Open next week at Pinehurst. Play stopped at 6:49 p.m. with officials hoping to have the leaders tee off for the final round by 9:10 a.m. Sunday, if they can avoid a fog delay like the one that delayed the start of play for an hour Saturday morning. A storm Thursday forced 60 players to wrap up the first round Friday, and only 32 finished the second before two delays, the second for a thunderstorm that left water standing in fairways, bunkers and cart paths. The third round finally started at 3 p.m. with threesomes going off both tees. At least fans got to stick around all of Saturday afternoon after being sent home early the past two days. Crane didnt tee off until 4:50 p.m. Saturday after finishing up his second round at 12:18 p.m. Friday. But this is Cranes 300th career PGA Tour start, even though his last win was in 2011 at the McGladrey Classic. Crane said he cant remember playing with a lead this late in a tournament its been so long. He is putting well here this week, and he birdied his first hole to go to 13 under for the tournament as he rolled in a nearly 19-footer on the par-4 first. After hitting his approach into the rough behind the green on No. 2, Crane made a 12-footer to save par. "Those are kind of critical putts right now, kind of keep the momentum going," Crane said. Merritt, who did not make a start on tour in 2012 or 2013 and missed his first six cuts this year, is the closest to Crane. "Anything can happen on the final day when weve seen six-shot leads falter on the last day," Merritt said. "If you can stay within a couple shots, that would be great. Anything can happen on Sunday on the PGA Tour." Mickelson tied for 49th last week in the Memorial following a visit from FBI agents and lingering questions about an insider-trading investigation. He never teed off at all Friday with the horn blowing for the second time with him at the No. 1 tee. He said he couldnt hit his irons close enough or his putts in his second round. He started bogey-birdie-bogey-birdie, though he birdied Nos. 14 and 15 to get to 5 under. He rolled in a 16-footer to save par on the par-5 16th and wasnt happy at missing a birdie opportunity with the pin at the front of the green. "I had a chance to get up and down," Mickelson said. "I think if I had birdied 16 I might have gotten one more with a little bit of momentum. ... Im certainly not that far back, but I do need to get off to a quick start. I got to get a good front nine here this third round and get off to a fast start." Divots: Local favourite John Daly was among 71 making the cut at even par. Defending champ Harris English missed the cut along with Patrick Reed, Lee Westwood and David Toms, a two-time champ here. ... David Duval withdrew after seven holes in his second round. He was at 7 over for the tournament. He was the 10th to withdraw since this event started. nike air max 2015 uk .com) - On a night where Kobe Bryant could have passed the great Michael Jordan on the NBAs all-time scoring list, it was Nick Young who bailed the Los Angeles Lakers out against the defending champs. nike air max 90 hyperfuse uk . - The Tampa Bay Times is reporting Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was stabbed in the thigh at his home and an arrest warrant has been issued for his brother. ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Evan Longoria took a right turn out of the Tampa Bay clubhouse and walked a few feet before stepping in front of a group of reporters huddled around a lineup board that will not list his name for the next four to eight weeks. The three-time All-Star was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a partially torn left hamstring Tuesday. Replacing his bat and glove wont be easy. Yet the Rays are confident theyll be OK without their best player, whos hitting .329 with four homers and 19 RBIs. "Ive been in similar situations before and its just one of those things where Ill stay positive," the third baseman said. "Its going to be tough to watch, but I cant really worry about it right now. Ive just got to worry about getting healthy." The Rays received the test results before Tuesday nights game against the Seattle Mariners. Longoria was injured Monday while running to second base on an attempted steal. He slid into the bag and remained on the ground for a moment before climbing to his feet and walking to the dugout without assistance. Elliot Johnson replaced him following the third inning and eventually delivered a game-winning RBI single in the 12th inning of a 3-2 victory. The Rays have a knack for finding someone to step up when star players are struggling or hurt. Thats one of the reasons they are confident they can withstand Longorias absence. "Were still a really good team. Were going to have to be that much better defensively, that much better with our execution on the basepaths," executive vice-president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. "Our pitchings going to be very good. Were going to score runs," he added. "So its one of those things where its definitely not ideal, but we do have a ton of talent around him that should still allow us to win a lot of games." The Rays have made the playoffs three of the past four seasons, including 2008 when they won the AL East and made an improbable run to the World Series. That year, nearly every starter spent time on the disabled list, including Longoria. http://www.maxshoecheap.me.uk/. Tampa Bay lost the slugger for 26 games early last year and recovered from a slow start to rally from a nine-game deficit in September to win the AL wild card on Longorias game-ending homer on the final night of the regular season. "I dont have any doubts," that teammates will step up and help the Rays continue a strong start, Longoria said. "Weve been down this road before," manager Joe Maddon said. "Theres no crying in baseball. ... You just try to make the best decisions afterward and move forward. But you cant worry about it. You dont talk about it negatively because that can bring you down." The Rays purchased the contract of infielder Will Rhymes from Triple-A Durham. To make room on the 40-man roster for Rhymes, reliever Kyle Farnsworth was transferred from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day DL. Johnson was in the lineup again Tuesday night. Another utility infielder, Jeff Keppinger, may also get some starts at third while Longoria is out. "Its not clear yet how much time hell miss. It will be a minimum of four weeks. Somewhere in the four to eight (range), depending on how he responds and how treatment goes," Friedman said. "Hes always been a pretty good healer. Hes had some hamstring issues in the past and has come back from them pretty quickly, relatively speaking, so were not going to put a firm timeline on it." Longoria was sidelined by a strained left oblique muscle most of the opening month a year ago. He had a strong second half, finishing with 31 homers and 99 RBIs. He helped the Rays to a 15-8 record in April -- the second-best opening month in franchise history -- and thought he had left his problems with injuries behind him. "Its just one of those things. Driving home last night, I was thinking I can look in the mirror and say Ive done everything that I can do to try to prevent these kind of things," Longoria said. "My hamstring just doesnt co-operate with me sometimes." cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : Curry brought the Warriors back in the third,

LEWISTON, Maine -- Andrew Gordon scored two goals and assisted on two more as the St. Hassan Whiteside Jersey . Johns IceCaps held on to beat the Portland Pirates 7-5 in American Hockey League action on Tuesday. John Albert had two goals and an assist, Kyle MacKinnon had a goal and an assist apiece, and Brenden Kichton and Eric ODell also scored for St. Johns (29-19-4), who scored six second-period goals for a franchise record. Lucas Lessio had two goals and an assist for Portland (19-22-9), Rotislav Klesla scored a goal and assisted on another, and Andy Miele and Brett Hextall also scored. IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinson stopped 24 shots for the victory. Mark Visentin started in net for the Pirates but was replaced after giving up seven goals on 37 shots through 39:44. Louis Domingue stopped all 12 shots he faced in relief. Portland got on the board first with Kleslas second of the season at 9:00 of the first period, but St. Johns responded with three straight goals -- including two within the first minute and a half of the second period -- to go up 3-1. The Pirates replied with a power-play goal from Miele at 2:35 of the second, and the IceCaps kept the pressue going with four more goals before the end of the middle frame, including a short-handed marker from Albert. Portland scored two in the third period. The IceCaps outshot the Pirates 49-29, a new club best. Glen Rice Authentic Jersey . Louis Cardinals are one of Major League Baseballs model franchises.

The Desert Foxes opened the scoring after 26 minutes as Carl Medjani sent a long ball over the top to the feet of striker Islam Slimani, who did well to split two South Korean defenders and touch it past goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong.NEW YORK -- Mark Jackson looked around Barclays Center and saw friends, family and familiar faces from a lifetime of New York basketball. What he saw on the court was pretty special, too. David Lee had 30 points and 15 rebounds, Stephen Curry scored 28 points, and the Golden State Warriors gave their coach a winning return to Brooklyn by beating the Nets 109-102 on Friday night. "Good to be home," Jackson said, "and its even better to leave out of here with a victory." Lee scored six straight points to break open a tie game midway through the fourth quarter, and Curry had 21 in the second half for the Warriors, who won for the fifth time in six games. Golden State improved to 2-0 on its season-high, seven-game road trip against Eastern Conference opponents, a game played not far from where Jackson became a New York City star. Jacksons mother and sister were in the crowd, and he said he even recognized people working in the arena who worked at Madison Square Garden when he played there. "He talked about it as being a dream of his and we just wanted to come out with effort to make that happen for him," Curry said. "You could see he had so much passion after the game. You could tell how much this meant to him." Joe Johnson scored a season-high 32 points for the Nets, who dropped their season-high third straight. Deron Williams added 23 points and eight assists. "Weve had similar games like this all season where we get out to a lead and really cant hang on to it. We really got outworked especially in the second half," Williams said. "Stephen Curry got hot in the offensive end and defensively we just didnt play good tonight. We had too many breakdowns in our defence, too many system errors." Brooklyn played without starting centre Brook Lopez for a fourth straight game because of a sprained right foot. Andray Blatche had 22 points and 15 rebounds in his place. Currys streak of 20-point, 10-assist games ended at four, the longest by a Warriors player since Tim Hardaway 20 years ago, when he had only five assists. But he was locked in scoring mode in the second half of his sixth straight game with 20 or more points, hitting long jumpers, showing a shooters body language in believing that every time he pulled up, it was going in. "Hes a bad man," Jackson said. "Hes a bad man. At the end of the day, hes healthy, and Ill take him matching up against any point guard in this league. And thats with total respect for Deron Williams and some other guys in this league, but Steph Curry is in that class and he shoots the ball as well as anybody thats ever played, and for the first time in a long time hes healthy, and I think people forgot just how good he is." Curry tied it at 89 wwith a 3-pointer, then Lee knocked down two jumpers and put back a miss as the Warriors opened a 95-89 lead with 6:39 to play. Glen Rice Swingman Jersey. The Nets got it down to four about three minutes later, but Lee converted a three-point play before Draymond Greens follow shot extended Golden States lead to 105-96. "Our problem is defence. We are not the same team defensively. We have to get back and figure it out," Nets coach Avery Johnson said. "We have to get our team out of this defensive funk." Jackson was born in Brooklyn, played high school ball at nearby Bishop Loughlin, starred at St. Johns and began his NBA career with the Knicks, winning Rookie of the Year honours in 1988. The trip back to Brooklyn hit home, he said, when the team bus passed a McDonalds where he used to eat after high school home games. Jackson said he spent Thursday with his son and visited with his mother and sister earlier Friday. He said his reaction upon seeing the $1 billion Barclays Center was simply, "Wow!" "You couldnt imagine this being here as a kid growing up, or as a high school kid, just couldnt imagine it," he said before the game. "So its a big deal and rightfully so." He said he had about 10 friends and family members at the game, and got a nice hand after the introduction of the Warriors starting lineup. Lee spent five years with the Knicks and reserve Charles Jenkins played at Hofstra, so plenty of Warriors were comfortable in New York. "Its great for a bunch of us to be back here and we take a lot of pride in going on the road and finding a way to get wins," Lee said, "and we were very, very happy we did that." The Nets led by seven after one, then got 3-pointers by Jerry Stackhouse and Johnson to open the second, increasing their lead to 37-24. The Warriors battled back to tie it at 55, but the Nets scored the final eight points of the half, taking a 63-55 lead on Blatches 3 with 0.5 seconds remaining. Curry brought the Warriors back in the third, making three 3-pointers and scoring 13 of Golden States 29 points. Jarrett Jacks jumper with 1.1 seconds left sent the Warriors to the fourth with an 84-82 lead. Jack had 15 points and eight assists, Klay Thompson scored 13 points, and Green finished with 10 rebounds. NOTES: Avery Johnson said Lopez did some shooting and light running and the Nets would see what he could do at practice Saturday before re-evaluating him Sunday. ... The seven-game trip is only ninth for the Warriors franchise since moving West. They havent had a winning record since going 4-3 in 1970-71. ... Avery Johnson said Blatche is a good passer -- most of the time. "Sometimes he goes into his Globetrotter deal, which doesnt yield great results," Johnson said. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

CHARLOTTE, N. cheap nfl jerseys .C. -- Paul Millsap scored 28 points, and the Atlanta Hawks snapped the Charlotte Bobcats eight-game home winning with a 97-83 victory Monday night. It was Atlantas 11th straight win over Charlotte. The Hawks have won four straight, pulling within 1 1/2 games of the Bobcats for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference playoff race. Pero Antic had 11 points and 10 rebounds and DeMarre Carroll scored all nine of his points in the fourth quarter to help the Hawks open an 18-point lead. Kemba Walker led the Bobcats with 20 points. Al Jefferson, who was selected the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Monday, had 16 points and 12 rebounds for his 30th double-double of the season but was just 6 of 15 from the field. The Bobcats led by six at halftime, but went cold in the second half shooting 29 per cent (11 of 38) from the field. Charlotte shot 35 per cent for the game. The Bobcats shot just 4 of 19 from the field in the third quarter and watched a six-point halftime lead turn into an eight-point deficit to start the fourth quarter and they could never mount a serious threat after that point. Carroll made sure there was no comeback, with a pair of dunks and a 3-pointer. Antic came in averaging 13 points in four straight starts and hit a pair of 3-pointers early on to help set the tone. The Hawks were 13 of 34 from 3-point range and showed good ball movement throughout the game, repeatedly getting open looks at the basket. For the second straight game, the Bobcats struggled on offence, looking out of sync and taking poor shots. The Bobcats (33-35) were looking to tie a franchise record with their ninth straight win at home and pull even at .500, but failed to put up much of a fight in a sluggish second half. It was a second straight game the Bobcats had poor ball movement on offence, although they were able to pull out a win over the weekend at Milwaukee. The Hawks continue to have Charlottes number. They have defeated the Bobcats three times this season, including a 118-116 home overtime victory on Dec. 28. Millsap also led all scorers in that outing with 33 points and 13 rebounds. The Bobcats have been thriving in the paint this season, but were limited to just 24 on Monday night. The Hawks scored 38 points inside the paint.

Carlos Gonzalez also had an RBI during the decisive rally. "We look for Tulo and CarGo to lead us. If they dont go anywhere, we dont go anywhere," Lyles said. "So for us to be good we need them to be good. They are proven players and theyre going to give their best effort every day of the week. Talent-wise, it doesnt get much better that that combo." Adam Ottavino took over in the eighth for Lyles as a steady drizzle sent many in the crowd of 44,866 for cover. Ottavino retired the side in order before Boone Logan struck out his first two batters in the ninth -- including Matt Kemp, who was ejected by umpire Angel Hernandez for arguing a called third strike. It was Kemps seventh career ejection and the Dodgers first this season. The drizzle had turned into a downpour by the 10th. Brandon Barnes pinch-hit for reliever Rex Brothers (2-2) with one out in the 11th and doubled against Jamey Wright (1-1). Left-hander J.P. Howell entered to face the lefty-swinging Blackmon, who came in leading the majors with a .410 average. The leadoff hitter grounded a 2-2 pitch up the middle to drive in the go-ahead run after going hitless in his four previous at-bats against Beckett. Nolan Arenado followed with a single that extended his career-best hitting streak to 15 games. The Rockies added another run when first baseman Adrian Gonzalez threw home on a grounder in front of the bag by Carlos Gonzalez and was too late to get Blackmon. Justin Morneau capped the rally with an RBI single against Brandon League. Brothers pitched a hitless inning and LaTroy Hawkins got three outs for his seventh save after giving up a two-run homer to Adrian Gonzalez. Kemp would have been the next batter had he not been tossed. Yasiel Puig also went deep and had an RBI single for the defending NL West champions,, who are 1-5 in extra-inning games. cheap jerseys from china. Beckett allowed two runs and four hits with six strikeouts and no walks, after pitching five scoreless innings in each of his previous two starts. The right-hander, whose first four outings have resulted in no-decisions, hasnt won since beating the Rockies on Sept. 30, 2012, at Los Angeles. "There arent very many easy outs in that lineup, but I got some easier outs on some changeups. That was really the key to keeping them off balance," Beckett said. "Theyre a very good hitting team. Most of their guys usually feel pretty good about themselves, and they should." Beckett was 0-5 with a 5.19 ERA in eight starts last season before sitting out the final five months because of a groin strain and a subsequent bout with thoracic outlet syndrome, a nerve condition that required surgery in July. "I think this was a step in the right direction for me, personally. I wanted to show myself that I could do some things I havent done in a while, like pitching innings," Beckett said. "I mean, I havent been up and down six times in like 400 days. I dont know exactly how many. Thats just a guess." Lyles allowed two runs and six hits, striking out four and walking one. Puig, the second batter Lyles faced, hit the first pitch to centre field for his third home run. Ten of Puigs first 22 big league homers have come on the first pitch. "I dont mind when guys swing early, especially since Im a guy that does a decent job of getting guys to hit the ball on the ground," Lyles said. "I tried to make a good pitch down and away. If I threw a ball, I was fine with it. But I didnt get another chance. I left it over the plate and he put a good swing on it. Hes a strong guy who can put it into the seats." Tulowitzki drove Becketts second pitch of the second inning deep into the left-field pavilion for his fifth of the season. Two batters later, Dickerson hit a first-pitch homer to left-centre. Beckett then retired 17 of his next 18 batters. NOTES: Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw (back) threw 56 pitches over five innings in a rehab start for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga against visiting Lancaster, allowing a run and two hits with six strikeouts and a walk. The run came on a leadoff homer in the fifth. cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : The Lions host Tampa Bay and Minnesota

VANCOUVER - For one game at least, Zack Kassian lived up to his billing as a power forward who can produce points. Wholesale Jerseys China . Kassian recorded four assists to earn the first four-point night of his star-crossed NHL career Sunday night as the Vancouver Canucks rallied to beat his former team, the Buffalo Sabres 4-2. "It was one of those games (where) it seemed the puck followed me," said Kassian. "Its nice personally, but its even better we keep this streak going." The Canucks (33-30-10) have now posted two consecutive wins for the first time since mid-January. Vancouver pulled within three points of eighth-place Phoenix, and one point of ninth-place Dallas in the race for the second wild-card playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Sabres (20-43-8), last in the NHL by a wide margin, suffered their eighth loss in the past 10 games as they squandered an early 2-0 lead. Brad Richardson, Shawn Matthias, Yannick Weber and David Booth, with his first goal in 33 games, scored for the Canucks, who have won five of their last eight contests. The Sabres went ahead 2-0 only 3:29 into the game, but the score was tied 2-2 after the first period and the Canucks led 3-2 following the second. "In this league you cant play good sometimes," said Sabres coach Ted Nolan. "Youve got to play good all the time. Thats a lesson to learn and something we have to do to move forward." Tyler Ennis and Jamie McBain provided the offence for Buffalo. Kassian has often faced criticism since he was traded to Vancouver from the Sabres at the NHL trade deadline in February 2012 in the four-player deal that saw former Canuck fan favourite Cody Hodgson head to Buffalo. Kassian, Buffalos top 2009 draft pick (13th overall) excelled offensively two days after saying he is playing primarily a checking role now while Hodgson is primarily an offensive player. Hodgson, Vancouvers first choice (10th overall) in 2008, went without a point while the Sabres were badly outplayed for most of the game. "Im excited for every game, but obviously you want to play hard against your old team," said Kassian. "You definitely want to get the win, but its nice when you play well individually and as a line." Matthias, who was acquired in the Roberto Luongo trade from Florida, also had two assists while Richardson had one helper. The Canucks had not posted two straight wins since beating the Calgary Flames on Jan. 18, when coach John Tortorella drew a suspension for charging their dressing room between the first and second periods, and Edmonton Oilers on Jan. 21. Vancouver goaltender Eddie Lack overcame a slow start to earn the win. After allowing goals on Buffalos first and third shots of the game, Lack was sharp and finished with 16 saves. "The team did a great job bouncing back," said Lack. "I felt like I wasnt really tracking the puck well the first half of the game but then I just kind of settled down and felt better after that." Vancouvers quick rally from its early deficit spoiled a strong effort from rookie Buffalo goaltender Nathan Lieuwen, a 22-year-old Abbotsford, B.C., native who made just his second NHL career start and third appearance after being promoted from Rochester of the AHL on March 16. He recorded 32 saves as his club was outshot 36-18. "Thats frustrating and thats hockey," he said. "You get some good bounces and you do good things and you make mistakes, so Ill definitely learn from it." Weber scored the winning goal just 1:40 into the second period as he put a shot through Lieuwens legs to give the Canucks a 3-2 lead. Sabres defenceman Mike Weber was close to his Canuck namesake on the play, but Lieuwen said the puck went straight in. "I thought I had it and, obviously, there was a hole," said Lieuwen. "I dont know what to tell you. Thats obviously one that I feel I can obviously save. What a terrible night for that to go in." The goal sullied his "dream come true" of playing in Vancouver, where he has "tonnes of family." Ennis was also left frustrated as he watched the Sabres lead disintegrate after he had McBain had put them ahead. "We heard (Lack) has been shaky, so we wanted to get on him early, and we did," said Ennis. Kassian was not around for the final horn because he took a puck between the eyes, for the second time on the night, with 1:32 left in the game. He needed "about 10 stitches" to repair a cut. "So my face isnt getting any prettier, thats for sure," he said. Notes: Vancouver lost Henrik Sedin to an apparent knee injury late in the second period as he collided with a fallen Buffalo player behind the Sabres net. "I went to hit a guy and he came back off the boards and he fell on top of me, so well see how it is (Monday)," said Sedin. The mishap occurred after the Canucks and NHL honoured the Canucks captain for his 1,000th NHL game, played March 12 in Winnipeg. NHL senior vice-president of hockey operations Jim Gregory represented the league. ... Vancouver forwards Ryan Kesler and Daniel Sedin returned after suffering injuries earlier this month, but Alex Burrows missed the game with a hand injury suffered Thursday against Nashville. ... Hodgson played his 200th NHL regular-season game. … Lack made his 35th start of the season. At the outset of the season, Tortorella indicated he would get 15-20 starts. … Buffalo defenceman Alexander Sulzer, who was acquired with Hodgson from the Canucks, missed his fifth consecutive game with an upper-body injury. … Sabres starting goaltender Michal Neuvirth, acquired from Washington at the trade deadline, also missed his fourth consecutive contest, with a lower-body ailment. … Neuvirth and Matt Hackett, who dressed as Buffalos backup, were traded for each other in the 2007-08 OHL season. Neuvirth went to Windsor from Plymouth while Hackett went the other way. Wholesale NFL Jerseys . "Its very rare when you get 16 hits and no errors and you dont win the game, put it that way," he said. Nelson Cruz hit a grand slam and a solo homer as Baltimore pounded four home runs to outscore Toronto 10-8 on Wednesday night. Wholesale Jerseys . Michael Grabner knocked in a shot from the slot at 1:46 of overtime, giving the Islanders a 2-1 win over the Colorado Avalanche on Friday night.DETROIT - For weeks, Detroit fans could only wonder how tough the Lions might be if they had a chance to play the fourth quarter with a comfortable lead.In a Thanksgiving victory over Chicago, the Lions finally enjoyed that feeling.With Matthew Stafford, Calvin Johnson and the rest of the offence showing some long-overdue signs of life, Detroit beat the Bears 34-17 on Thursday, and sure enough, once the Lions took the lead in the second quarter, their defence never looked all that likely to give it up. Detroits top-ranked run defence held Chicago to 13 yards on the ground, and the Lions sacked Jay Cutler three times.I think we, as the players and coaches, kind of got a feel for what they were doing, we just reacted a little bit quicker, Detroit linebacker DeAndre Levy said. We kind of got a feel for what they were doing and adjusted accordingly.The Bears have one of the leagues top running backs in Matt Forte, and they barely even tried to establish any sort of ground game. Forte finished with 6 yards on five carries.With no real running threat to worry about, the Lions could focus on Cutler, and although the Bears had mild success with screens and short passes early on to counteract Detroits pass rush, it was hard for Chicago to accomplish much throwing deep.When you have a player like Forte, I think he only had like five or six carries, Levy said. I think something has to be said for our defence.Detroits previous three victories all came in the final minutes, with the offence needing to come from behind. The defence was crucial in those games too, preventing deficits from becoming insurmountable.Thursday was different. The Lions ledd by double digits for almost the entire final quarter, putting the pressure squarely on Chicago.ddddddddddddDetroits ability to stop the run does not guarantee anything. With passing numbers becoming more prolific seemingly every year in the NFL, opponents dont necessarily need to run the ball to win.The New England Patriots hardly ran at all in the first half against Detroit last weekend, and Tom Bradys passing ability was enough to put them on the path to a 34-9 victory. The Lions still have another game remaining against Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay. That matchup — in the final week of the regular season — will be quite a test for Detroits defence.But until then, the schedule is favourable. The Lions host Tampa Bay and Minnesota before a trip to Chicago for a rematch against the Bears.Next weeks a new week. We know that trap, weve fallen into it, centre Dominic Raiola said. Its a work in progress. Were gonna keep the pressure on ourselves and keep the pedal down. Enjoy this one but come back Monday, its a brand new week and a brand new challenge.It was Stafford — and to some degree, Johnson — who dealt with criticism as Detroits offence struggled to meet expectations, but both players were very good Thursday against Chicago. In a way, it was exactly what the rest of the league should fear: Detroits offence finally gave its defence a sizeable lead to protect.Its something to build off of, Stafford said. Just being consistent with it, not having a bad quarter — maybe a bad series here, one or two, but making sure that we were playing well in every quarter.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys from china ' ' '
