heading into a bye

TORONTO - Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson is continuing to heal from a sprained ligament in his right elbow, but there is still no timetable for his return. Harry Winks Jersey . Patterson hasnt played since March 7 when he aggravated an elbow injury. He was diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament two days later. The Raptors said Patterson was reassessed Monday and another scan of the elbow revealed that the injury is healing well. He will continue to increase his basketball-related activity, including contact and scrimmages. Patterson is averaging 8.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in 56 games this season for Sacramento and Toronto. He has averaged 9.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 39 games for the Raptors since being acquired from the Kings on Dec. 9.Blank Hotspur Jersey . -- Connor Brown scored once and set up four more as the Erie Otters doubled up the host Sarnia Sting 6-3 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play. Jan Vertonghen Hotspur Jersey . But until the 10th inning, the Colorado Rockies outfielder was hitless. That changed quickly when Dickerson drove a two-out, 0-1 pitch into the pool deck beyond the right field fence for the tiebreaking home run in the Rockies 5-3 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.MELBOURNE, Australia -- All Blacks flyhalf Tom Taylor kicked six penalties and hooker Ben Funnell scored the only try for the Crusaders as the New Zealand side laboured past the Melbourne Rebels 25-19 in Super Rugby on Friday. The seven-time champion Crusaders led 12-9 at halftime, all penalties, and the Rebels scored their only try with two minutes remaining through flanker Scott Fuglistaller, giving them a bonus point for losing by fewer than seven points. After starting with two losses, the Crusaders have won two straight heading into a bye next weekend. Taylor, playing outside recalled flyhalf Colin Slade, kicked the Crusaders to their halftime lead while fullback Jason Woodward provided all of the Rebels points. The first try of the match came in the 56th minute with the Rebels, with one win and two losses on the season, trying to hold out waves of attack before they were caught short when Kieran Read gave Funnell a free run into the right corner. The conversion and another penalty from Taylor pushed the lead to 13 points. Fuglistaller crossed late after the forwards mauled the ball. Bryce Hegarty added the conversion to ensure the bonus point. The Rebels, beaten 32-7 by the Western Force in the previous round, reinstated the lineup which easily defeated the Cheetahs in their season-opener and weree stronger defensively as they tried for a fifth consecutive win at home. Kyle Walker Hotspur Jersey. But persistent infringing, particularly at the scrum, enabled the Crusaders to take the lead from Taylors boot. Melbourne skipper Scott Higginbotham was frustrated with the penalty count. "We pride ourselves on our defence and how tough we are at the breakdown, and it was disappointing to give away that many penalties," Higginbotham said. Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder described the match as "ugly." "Off the back of not having a potent attack tonight, we defended with our hearts and it probably made the difference in the end," Blackadder said. "We can go into the bye in pretty good nick and we need to put a lot of work into our attack. There are a few things we can do which will certainly improve our game." Rebels coach Tony McGahan said the Crusaders experience proved to be the difference. "They were just a bit cuter than us in certain aspects and they controlled things really well," McGahan said. "We kept coming back and they kept slipping away." ------ Scores: Crusaders 25 (Ben Funnell try; Tom Taylor conversion, 6 penalties), Melbourne 19 (Scott Fuglistaller try; Bryce Hegarty conversion penalty, Jason Woodward 3 penalties).

ers Jersey . Fitzgerald announced the move on Tuesday via his Twitter ac

PHOENIX -- Larry Fitzgerald says he has restructured his contract with the Arizona Cardinals, reducing a big salary-cap hit from his old deal and creating room for signing other players. Louis Lipps Steelers Jersey . Fitzgerald announced the move on Tuesday via his Twitter account. The receiver says the move was made to help the Cardinals "get better for 2014." Under his old deal, Fitzgerald would have earned $12.75 million next season and counted a whopping $18 million on the cap. The restructured contract came as no surprise. Fitzgerald said in a radio interview in New York last week that he understood the need to restructure his deal. "When those discussions come I will do what I need to do," Fitzgerald told Arizona Sports 98.7 in an interview at the Super Bowls "radio row." "I have a great relationship with (general manager) Steve Keim, he drafted me in Arizona. I understand his vision and what he is trying to do and the direction he is taking this ballclub. I understand at 30 years old there are things that need to change. Thats part of football, thats part of being an older veteran." Fitzgerald said he knew Patrick Petersons "deal is coming up and he needs to be compensated as the best corner in the game, which I feel he is." Fitzgerald also mentioned defensive linemen Darnell Dockett and Frostee Rucker. "There are a lot of guys that deserve to be compensated for their play," he said in the radio interview, "and I understand that." Fitzgerald is on his third contract in his 10 NFL seasons, all with the Cardinals. Last season, he made his eighth Pro Bowl. Fitzgerald holds every Cardinals career receiving record. He caught 82 passes, most on the team, for 954 yards and 10 touchdowns last season. In his career, Fitzgerald has 846 catches for 11,367 yards and 87 touchdowns. He has not missed a game since the 2007 season. The Cardinals, coming off a 10-6 season in their first year with Keim as GM and Bruce Arians as coach, had several players on one-year contracts, including inside linebacker Karlos Dansby, who resurrected his career with a big season, leading the team in tackles. Azcentral.com reported that the restructuring was a simple swap of bonus money for salary, saving the team about $10 million on the coming seasons cap. Cardinals President Michael Bidwill expressed confidence last week that the restructuring would get done. Keim has repeatedly said the team has no intention of trading Fitzgerald and wants him to retire a Cardinal. Mike Mitchell Steelers Jersey . Hes making his statement on the court.

struggled in several areas. Cleveland has lost six straight and is in la

CLEVELAND -- After going through a rocky April, the Cleveland Indians got more bad news before even playing a game in May. [url=http://www.cheapjerseysstitchedshop.com/]NFL Jerseys China[/url] . All-Star second baseman Jason Kipnis was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained side muscle prior to Fridays game against the Chicago White Sox. Kipnis injury is expected to sideline him from three to five weeks. Losing Kipnis is yet another setback for a team thats struggled in several areas. Cleveland has lost six straight and is in last place in the AL Central. The Indians have yet to resemble the club that made the playoffs as a wild-card team in 2013. While one poor month doesnt guarantee a losing season, general manager Chris Antonetti knows its time to see some improvement. "There is obviously urgency," he said. "We want to try to turn things around as quickly as possible. Regardless of what the immediate results are, we need to play better as a team, really in all facets. Im confident well do that." Kipnis injured his oblique during an at-bat in the fourth inning of Tuesday nights loss to Los Angeles. He had an MRI on Thursday that showed the injury was more serious than originally thought. "Its not one of those ones you can play through," Kipnis said. "You have to let it fully recover because if you push it and re-injure it, youre right back at step one." The 27-year-old Kipnis is hitting .234 with three homers and 12 RBIs for the slumping Indians, who went 0-6 on a West Coast trip against the San Francisco Giants and Angels. "Trust me, watch how much this training staff hates me after about a week," he said. "As a player, you never like watching the game and not be able to help out the team. Hopefully, Ill get back out there as soon as possible." Kipnis signed a six-year, $52.5 million contract at the start of this season. His injury was the low point of a trip during which the Indians scored 13 runs and batted .183. "That probably wasnt our most fun road trip," manager Terry Francona said. "Unfortunately, we managed to do some things every game that didnt help us win." In an effort to break the slump, pitchers Corey Kluber and Cody Allen wore chicken outfits while standing in the outfield during batting practice Friday, but the Indians numbers havent provided many laughs. Cleveland is 12th in the AL in runs scored and leads the league with 26 errors, resulting in 17 unearned runs. Opening day starter Justin Masterson is winless in six starts, and several key hitters, including Carlos Santana, Nick Swisher and Asdrubal Cabrera, have struggled. Catcher Yan Gomes, who signed a six-year, $23 million contract in spring training, has made seven errors after committing three last season. "Teams are going to go through stretches of the season where they dont play great," Antonetti said. "There are going to be ebbs and flows to the season." "I believe well find a way to dig ourselves out of what weve dug," Francona said. The Indians recalled infielder Jose Ramirez from Triple-A Columbus. Ramirez has a .319 average with four homers and 17 RBIs in 23 games for the Clippers. [url=http://www.cheapjerseysstitchedshop.com/]Cheap Authentic Jerseys[/url] .The Knicks fell 101-91 to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, giving New York its longest in-season skid in the proud franchises 69-year history.

[url=http://www.cheapjerseysstitchedshop.com/]http://www.cheapjerseysstitchedshop.com/[/url] . -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are gathering information on an incident in which receiver Mike Williams allegedly was stabbed in the leg by his brother.INDIANAPOLIS -- Canadian driver Alex Tagliani has mixed feelings about replacing three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Dario Franchitti in the Oct. 19 season-ending IndyCar race at Fontana. He gets his shot to drive for one of the top teams in the series. But it took an injury for Tagliani to get the seat. Franchitti remained hospitalized Wednesday with two fractured vertebrae, a broken ankle and a concussion suffered in a last-lap accident Sunday at the Grand Prix of Houston. "You get the ride knowing one of your friends has been injured, and thats hard," Tagliani said Wednesday. "The good thing and the positive thing is Dario is fine and we exchanged emails, and his emails were positive and had a good vibe and it puts you at ease that he is in a good spirit after such a horrible crash. "That being said, although its an atmosphere we all want to avoid, when you are called to replace the primary and you are in the mix of it, it is an amazing opportunity to go there on an important weekend." Tagliani, from Lachenaie, Que., will drive the No. 10 Honda for Target Chip Ganassi Racing at Auto Club Speedway in California alongside IndyCar championship leader Scott Dixon. The team will be trying to help Dixon win a third series championship. Dixon takes a 25-point lead over Helio Castroneves into the finale. Tagliani believes he got the call to replace Franchitti based on experience -- he has four previous starts at Fontana, with a pole, three top-10s and a career-best third-place finish -- and a willingness to sacrifice personal gain for the goal of the Ganassi team. He was let go by team owner Bryyan Herta after 13 races this season, but said he wont use his shot in the Ganassi car to prove he deserves an IndyCar ride. [url=http://www.cheapjerseysstitchedshop.com/]Cheap Jerseys USA[/url]. "I have to stay very focused at the job ahead. If Dario was in the car, he would go out to support the team and help win the championship," Tagliani said. "If you look at it as a selfish way, you would go out and prove you still have it. But just that they have selected me, shows something." Tagliani said his job at Fontana will be to both help Dixon from a technical standpoint over the course of the race weekend, then to stand between Dixon and Castroneves on the track. "Ive got some experience around Fontana and knowing the cars, and it was very important to have a good chemistry aspect with the team," Tagliani said. "But there are two things they are trying to do here -- try to get a car that can steal points away and help get as many points for Scott." Since his release following the Toronto race in July, Tagliani has been running sports cars. He said its possible hell continue with sports cars next season when Grand-Am and ALMS are merged into one series, but Tagliani also is considering a return to IndyCar. "Ive had a blast in the sports car, I really enjoyed it," he said. "We were in the fight every single weekend and I think theres some opportunities there. Ive been in touch with some teams in IndyCar. It takes a lot of money to run IndyCar, so I am looking at sports car racing very seriously. But theres also been some IndyCar teams interested in me and it was quite flattering to have some calls."

Beverley sat out with injuries. The Clippers trailed by as many as 15 points

HOUSTON -- Chris Paul had 30 points and 12 assists, Jamal Crawford added 22 points and the Los Angeles Clippers clinched their franchise-record third straight playoff appearance with a 118-107 win over the Houston Rockets on Saturday night. Asics Gel Nimbus 17 Hombre . The loss broke a five-game winning streak for Houston, which was without two of its starters as Dwight Howard and Pat Beverley sat out with injuries. The Clippers trailed by as many as 15 points in the first half before using two big runs to take the lead. Houston stuck around for most of the second half before consecutive 3s by Matt Barnes and Darren Collison made it 114-101 late in the fourth. But it wasnt all good for Los Angeles, as Blake Griffin left in the first quarter with back spasms and didnt return, and Glen Davis missed the second half for disciplinary reasons after throwing a temper tantrum in the second quarter. James Harden led the Rockets with 32 points, and Chandler Parsons had 28. DeAndre Jordan added 20 points with 12 rebounds for the Clippers, who are third in the Western Conference. Crawford scored all of the Clippers points in an 8-1 run to start the fourth quarter and leave them up 96-85. An 8-3 run by Houston cut the lead to 102-96 with five minutes remaining. Harden capped it with a free throw after a technical foul on Paul. The Rockets scored the first five points of the third quarter to take a 63-61 lead. The teams exchanged the lead several times in that quarter before a layup by Ryan Hollins left Los Angeles up 88-84 entering the fourth quarter. The first half was filled with drama for the Clippers, who lost Griffin in the first quarter before the incident with Davis in the second. There appeared to be minimal contact between Griffin and Donatas Motiejunas before Griffin dropped to his hands and knees on his way to the bench after a timeout was called midway through the first quarter. He was clutching his lower back and remained on the court for a couple of minutes before being helped to his feet. He was biting his jersey as he gingerly walked off the court and to the locker room. Davis, whose nickname is "Big Baby," was apparently upset after being taken out in the second quarter and threw a temper tantrum at coach Doc Rivers. Rivers immediately sent him to the locker room and the team announced that he would not return after halftime. Davis was 0-for-2 with a steal in less than four minutes in the first half. With Griffin out, Houston used a 7-2 spurt to start the second quarter and extend its advantage to 40-25. The Rockets were still up by 15 points a couple of minutes later when the Clippers used an 8-0 run to cut the lead to 44-37. Harden made three free throws before another run -- this one 14-2 -- gave Los Angeles a 51-49 lead. Paul, who had 17 points in the second quarter, scored the first 10 points in that span with two 3s and he dished an alley-oop to Jordan to cap it with a dunk. Los Angeles led by a point soon after that before scoring six straight points to extend the lead to 61-54 Houston scored the last four points of the quarter to cut the lead to 61-58 at halftime. NOTES: Jordan went to high school in Houston and college at nearby Texas A&M. ... Howard is day to day with a left ankle strain and Beverley has a torn meniscus in his right knee and is out indefinitely. Asics Gel Lyte V Baratas . He failed, so for the third, he shortened up, trying to protect the plate. That ball ended up going out and, boy, did the Arizona Diamondbacks need it. Asics Gel Lyte V España . On one of the memorable European nights at Old Trafford, Van Persie scored three times in a 27-minute span either side of halftime to overturn a 2-0 deficit from the first leg. A slew of brilliant saves by David de Gea were also key to a famous win for the English champions -- and a vital one for their manager, David Moyes.PARIS -- Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery and Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema were acquitted on charges of soliciting an underage prostitute on Wednesday, ending a case that has lasted more than three years and tarnished both players reputation. The French judge ruled there wasnt enough proof the men were aware that self-described escort Zahia Dehar, now 21, was a minor at the time. The case has been hanging over the players since July 2010, when a French judge issued preliminary charges against them. Neither player was president as the criminal court announced the verdicts, but the relief and emotion got to Riberys lawyer, Carlo Alberto Brusa, who was in tears as he phoned the France star to tell him hed been cleared of all charges. "When you experience moments like that you get goose bumps, as he told me himself," Brusa told The Associated Press when asked how Ribery felt upon hearing the news. "He has an extraordinary character, and hes someone I respect a lot. I think its a victory, a victory for justice." The two footballers had faced up to three years in prison if found guilty. Dehar contends Ribery flew her to Munich as a birthday present to himself in 2009 when she was under 18. She says she lied to the players and told them she was an adult. Dehar was also not present at the trial. Although Ribery has admitted to having sex with Dehar, he claims he did not pay her and that he did not know she was a prostitute or a minor at the time. "We did a lot of work, serious work analyzing the file to establish the fact that there was no proof (that Ribery knew she was underage)," Brusa told the AP. Prostitution is legal in France, but prostitutes must be over 18. Benzemas lawyer Sylvain Cormier said he "could feel all the weight coming off, it was morally very tryying. Onitsuka Tiger Mexico 66 Oferta. quot; Cormier called the verdict "the end of a nightmare" for Benzema. "It was very painful for him. Hes a strong person, he really ipressed me. Four years is a very long time." Benzema has denied all the allegations. The 26-year-old Benzema is alleged to have paid 500 euros ($678) to have sex with Dehar in May 2008, the night he won the French player of the year award playing for his former club, Lyon. Dehar was 16 at the time. Ribery had the best season of his career in 2012-13, helping Bayern win the Bundesliga, the German Cup and Champions League. He finished third in the recent Ballon dOr vote behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. "Playing football with that weighing on you is not easy and for me its the sign of a great champion," Brusa said. "He showed in 2013 that hes a fantastic player." Benzema has passed the 100-goal mark for Madrid since joining the Spanish giant from Lyon in 2009. The criminal court trial had initially been set for last June but was adjourned for procedural reasons. It resumed last week. Ribery is alleged to have had sex with Dehar three times — including at the home of Kamel Ramdani, 39, one of several people who were on trial after a probe into a suspected network of prostitutes operating out of a nightclub called "Zaman Cafe" on Paris Champs-Elysees. The establishment was run by Georges Farhat, 30, who employed his younger brother, Elie Farhat, 26. Both were present to hear their verdicts. Georges was sentenced to 18 months in prison, nine of those suspended, and fined 20,000 euros ($27,150). His brother was handed a one-year prison sentence, with six months suspended and fined 5,000 euros ($6,800). Ramdani was sentenced to five months in jail and fined 5,000 euros ($6,800). Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

. -- Washington Redski

BOSTON -- Kevin Garnett found Keyon Dooling for a 3-pointer. Pablo Zabaleta Argentina Jersey . Then the Boston big man hit a fallaway jumper of his own. Back at the other end, Garnett grabbed a rebound to start a fast break that ended with Avery Bradley at the free throw line. Just like that, the Celtics broke open a tie game and took a seven-point lead they never relinquished. Garnett had 23 points and 10 rebounds on Wednesday night to lead Boston to a 94-82 victory over the Utah Jazz and move the Celtics back into a tie for first place in the Atlantic Division. Garnett had 10 points and three assists in the fourth quarter, when Boston recovered after blowing an 18-point lead. "Hes been playing like that a lot in the second half of the season," said Celtics swingman Paul Pierce, who scored 20 points. "Weve been going to him a lot out there. And hes been inspiring on both ends of the floor." Brandon Bass scored 19 points, and Rajon Rondo had 14 assists for Boston, which won for the fifth time in six tries to move into a tie with the Philadelphia 76ers atop the Atlantic Division. After playing at Minnesota on Friday night, the Celtics play seven games in 11 nights against likely playoff teams. "We kind of smell the end of the season, with the playoffs coming," Pierce said. "This is the time of year youve got to step it up and get ready." Former Celtic Al Jefferson had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz, scoring 10 in a 17-3, third-quarter run that turned an 18-point deficit into a two-possession game. The Jazz tied it early in the fourth before Boston scored the next seven points -- with Garnett contributing on all of them -- to pull away. "Hes just so experienced and such a competitor," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "Hes going to do whatever he can do to help his team win. He did it on both ends of the floor tonight. He made the big shots; defensively, he fought and clawed." Garnett and Jefferson, who were traded for each other in the 2007 deal that created the New Big 3 in Boston, had a physical matchup all game, picking up matching technicals with 6 minutes left in the game. Even in the final seconds, with the outcome already settled, Garnett wouldnt let Jefferson put up a show. "Just another game," Jefferson said. "Thats all Im going to say about that." Utah had won seven of its previous eight games. Gordon Hayward scored 19 points, and Paul Millsap had 16 for the Jazz, who fell into a three-way tie with Denver and Houston in a race for the last two playoff spots in the Western Conference. "Any time you have to battle from 18 points down, then you basically have to start over again," said Hayward, who had back-to-back blocks in the fourth as the Jazz keep the game within reach. "Thats definitely something weve shown on this road trip. We have fight. Were never going to give up. The heart on this team is great. Weve just got to be a little bit better in the first half and not get down so we dont have to fight back like that." The Celtics took a 44-29 lead with 2:22 left in the half on consecutive alley-oops from Rondo to Ryan Hollins. Boston opened an 18-point lead, 61-43, with 7:40 to play in the third quarter. But the Jazz scored 17 of the next 20 points -- 10 of them from Jefferson -- to make it a four-point game. They then ran off six in a row to tie it 66-all, scoring the first five of the fourth quarter on Enes Kanters jumper and a three-point play by Alec Burks. Thats when the Celtics snapped out of their slump. After Garnett put up an assist, basket and rebound in quick succession, Bradley hit a pair of free throws that 73-66. The Jazz never got closer than three points after that. Notes: Ray Allen missed his fourth consecutive game with a sore right ankle ... Celtics F Chris Wilcox is scheduled to have surgery for an enlarged aorta on Thursday. ... Pierce made seven free throws to give him 6,041 in his career and pass David Robinson for 15th place on the NBAs career list for free throws made. Next up: Wilt Chamberlain at 6,057. ... Jefferson and Garnett drew matching technical fouls with 6 minutes left. ... Jefferson was 1 for 8 from the floor in the first half. Sergio Romero Jersey . The Pacers rallied from 17 points down in the first half and almost wiped out another double-digit deficit after halftime, but had the same offensive troubles late that plagued them early in the game. Paul George had 27 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Pacers, who stayed a game and a half up on Miami for the lead in the Eastern Conference after the Heat lost in overtime to Chicago. Carlos Tevez Jersey . -- Washington Redskins coach Jay Gruden is optimistic Robert Griffin III will return this season. MILAN, Italy -- Mario Balotellis stunning late winner secured a 1-0 victory for AC Milan against relegation-threatened Bologna in Serie A on Friday. Balotelli fired into the top far corner from 35 metres in the 86th minute. The result will be a welcome boost before the first leg of Milans Champions League last-16 tie against Spanish league leader Atletico Madrid on Wednesday. "I think that was the goal of the season," Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said. "It was very difficult to score and it was an incredibly powerful, explosive effort. When you have great champions they can win the match for you with one shot. Im going to watch it over and over again tonight. "Bologna was difficult to beat and we won it with a great bit of play from a great champion like Mario. Balotelli has to gain continuity but he has everything to become a great champion." Milan haad the majority of the possession and should have taken an early lead but Bologna goalkeeper parried Riccardo Montolivos effort. Angel Di Maria Argentina Jersey. Kaka was back from a bout of flu which kept him out of last weeks 3-1 defeat at Napoli, and the Brazilian lined up alongside January signings Keisuke Honda and Adel Taarabt, just behind Balotelli. Bologna had the best chance of the first half though, and Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati did well to fingertip Rene Krhins header over the crossbar in the 22nd minute. "I dont like this Milan side," Bologna coach Davide Ballardini said. "Once upon a time it was a squad made up of champions who would help the team and now it doesnt seem to me to be like this anymore. "I would like to coach a player like Balotelli. He has the makings of the champion, but to become a real champion he needs other things as well." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

career victory ov

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- The hope of an all-Williams final at the Dubai Championships ended on the racket of Frenchwoman Alize Cornet on Friday. The 26th-ranked Cornet scored her first career victory over a No. 1 player when she upset Serena Williams 6-4, 6-4. "Im so excited," Cornet said, smiling broadly. "I didnt expect that definitely, and Im really, really happy and proud of myself. "Shes one -- or maybe -- the biggest champion of history, and, wow, just thinking that I beat her today." Earlier in the day, Venus Williams earned her spot in the final when she dominated eighth-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark 6-3, 6-2. Serena Williams, playing in her first tournament since losing in the Australian Open fourth round, offered no excuses. She said her back, which had been hurting in recent weeks, was fine. "Im a wee bit embarrassed," said Williams, who started laughing. "She played really well. I just didnt play today. "I tried, though. I dont think I have made that many errors in a match in I think at least three years, maybe four years." Williams gave herself a failing grade for being unable to find a winning formula for the match: "I think out of a 10, I was at like a negative 283." Cornet won the first set when Williams flinched while serving in the ninth game. Cornet, who reached the Paris Indoors semifinal earlier this month, took advantage of her one-set point in the 10th game with a winning backhand down the line. The Frenchwoman then jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the second set, but Williams rebounded. Cornet broke Williams serve again in the seventh game with a winning forehand down the line. Williams fought off four match points on her own serve in the ninth game, but Cornet served out the match at love. "I know her, and I know she feels the moment when she has to put more into making the opponent feel that shes still here," Cornet said. "But I did it, too. I showed her that I would be there till the end. "So when she was screaming louder, I was screaming louder. She was hitting harder, I was hitting harder." In contrast to her sister, the 44th-ranked Venus Williams has been playing top level tennis all week long in Dubai. A former two-time Dubai champion in 2009 and 2010, Williams currently holds a 14-match winning streak at the tournament. She didnt play in this event between 2011 and 2013. "I feel like Ive just gotten so much better since my first round to now, just feeling comfortable on the court, feeling comfortable when Im behind, feeling comfortable when Im in the lead," Williams said. Williams, who lost the Auckland final to Ana Ivanovic last month, lost an early 2-0 lead in the first set. But from 2-2, Williams always held the lead in the match. Williams failed to serve out the first set at 5-2, surrendering that eighth game at love. Wozniacki, however, surrendered her serve -- and the first set -- on a second set point in the next game Williams broke Wozniackis serve at 15-40 with a textbook backhand volley for a 2-0 lead in the second set. She broke serve again in the eighth game for the win. "I didnt really feel like I could go out and play what I wanted to play," said Wozniacki, who won the Dubai trophy in 2011. "Once I got going, she started to play better as well. It was kind of uphill today." Venus Williams holds a 3-0 lead in matches played against Cornet.

way late to beat the C

DENVER -- Some run support at long last made all the difference for Kevin Correia. http://www.sportingkansascitymlsshop.com/Authentic-Amadou-Dia-Jersey/ . Correia pitched six innings of one-run ball, Eduardo Escobar homered, and the Minnesota Twins pulled away late to beat the Colorado Rockies 9-3 on Saturday. Correia (5-11) scattered seven hits and cooled the power-hitting Rockies, who stranded 10 baserunners and were kept in the yard after slugging eight home runs in their previous two games. He walked one and struck out one in snapping a hard-luck three-game losing streak during which he had received no run support. "We havent been doing a good job of scoring runs early for him," Twins second baseman Brian Dozier said. "Hes probably leading the league in getting the fewest amount of runs so it was good to get him a lot of run support and get on a good-hitting team like Colorado early. "Hats off to K-Co for doing a heck of a job." The Twins were shut out in the last two losses for Correia, who helped the Twins offence break out against Colorado with a run-scoring double for his first hit of the season and first RBI in three years. "I think everybody was excited about that," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "I know he was until he got to second base and had to breathe this light air. Its always exciting for a team when a pitcher gets a hit." Correia welcomed the offensive show, including his own bit role. "Its always nice having a lead, although 2-nothing in Colorado, you know youre not going to go out there and be like, OK, let me hold this 2-nothing lead the rest of the game," Correia said. "But it was definitely nice to get that run support early, and it was nice to be able to mix in (his) hit." Tyler Matzek (1-4) allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings in the loss, his fourth straight since winning his major league debut. "The first inning was the only inning I wasnt comfortable throwing," Matzek said. "After that, I felt I was making good pitches. Balls were finding a few holes. And some went down the line. The home run came on a good pitch." Up 4-1, the Twins secured the win with a three-run eighth inning. Pinch-hitter Chris Parmelee hit a bases-loaded single to drive in a pair, and the third run scored on Doziers sacrifice fly. Minnesota tacked on two more runs in the ninth on an RBI single by Kurt Suzuki and an obstruction call on Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado. Correia worked out of trouble in the fifth. After giving up consecutive one-out singles, including a run-scoring basehit by Charlie Blackmon, Correia induced Troy Tulowitzki to ground into an inning-ending double play. "He was cutting the ball on us really good," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said of Correia. "Going away from the righties and in on the lefties. We put a lot of balls in the air. We didnt quite get to them." Blackmon finished 5 for 5 for his 29th multihit game of the season, including a career-best six-hit game against Arizona on April 4. Matzek was in trouble from the outset, falling behind 2-0 three batters into the game. Dozier led off with a double, Escobar reached on a fielders choice and Kendrys Morales followed with a double to score them both. Escobar put the Twins up 3-0 when he started the third with a homer, his third of the season, and Correia, whose run support is lowest among Twins starters, helped himself with a two-out RBI double in the fourth that he drove down the third-base line. Matzek walked one and struck out two. NOTES: Rockies LHP Brett Anderson (0-2) is set to come off the 60-day disabled list to start Sundays series finale against the Twins in his first appearance since April 12 at San Francisco, when he broke his left index finger during an at bat. Hell be opposed by RHP Phil Hughes (9-5). ... Correia last had an RBI on July 28, 2011, at Atlanta while with Pittsburgh. ... Scott Baker was the last Twins pitcher to double in a game on May 21, 2011, at Arizona. ... The Twins improved to 5-9 in interleague play. Colorado fell to 6-8. ... Colorado got two ninth-inning runs on Carlos Gonzalezs RBI double and Tulowitzkis run-scoring groundout. http://www.sportingkansascitymlsshop.com/Authentic-Erik-Palmer-Brown-Jersey/ .

ng five hits in eig

PHOENIX -- Ever since A. Jean-Kevin Augustin Paris Saint-Germain Jersey .J. Burnett found out he had a hernia, hes been at his best. Burnett gave Philadelphia a great finish to a good road trip, allowing five hits in eight sharp innings for his first win of the season, 2-0 over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Burnett has an 0.83 ERA in his three outings since he found out he had an inguinal hernia and decided he would forego surgery until the end of the season. "He said thats keeping him humble," catcher Wil Nieves said. "Instead of trying to throw hard, hes throwing nice and easy." "Hopefully, hell have the hernia all year," he kidded. Nieves, the backup to regular catcher Carlos Ruiz, also was Burnetts catcher two starts earlier when he gave up three hits in seven scoreless innings against Atlanta. Thats 15 straight scoreless innings for the pairing. "Man, hes fun to throw to," Burnett said. "He has that energy about him that fires you up and locks you in." Burnett (1-1) struck out seven with no walks and hit a batter. "When I got behind, I was able to make the pitch, whether it was a sinker or a curve ball," he said. "I mixed in one changeup today. ... When Im on, Im a two-pitch pitcher." Burnett has long since deserved a win. He allowed eight runs in his one bad start, five combined in the other five. "A.J. just doesnt get flustered with any men on base or anything," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said, "just pitches and battles and competes, maybe takes it up a notch, makes quality pitches." After beginning its 10-game trip with two messy losses in Colorado, Philadelphia won six of eight to return home a game above .500 (13-12). "A good W," Burnett said, "a happy flight." Jonathan Papelbon pitched the ninth for his eighth save and second in as many games, closing out Saturday nights 6-5 victory, a game that the Phillies won after trailing 5-0. On Sunday, chase Utley hit an RBI single in the first, then doubled and scored in the sixth while raising his batting average to .360. The Phillies took two of three from Arizona. Brandon McCarthy (0-5) struck out a career-high 12 in seven innings. He gave up both runs and seven hits. "He threw a heck of a game," Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said. "It was his best game this year by far." Still, the Diamondbacks fell to 2-11 at Chase Field this season. Ben Revere opened the game with a single, stole second and scored when Utleys fly ball fell between left fielder Cody Ross and centre fielder A.J. Pollock for a single. Gibson said Ross got a bad break on the ball, thinking it was going deeper. McCarthy shut the Phillies down the next four innings. In the sixth, Utley led off with a double and scored when shortstop Chris Owings made a nice stop on Marlon Byrds grounder but threw wildly to third. Gibson blamed third baseman Martin Prado, saying he didnt get to the bag. The Diamondbacks had their chances. Pollock and Owings opened the fourth with singles, but McCarthy bunted into a force play. Martin Prado bounced into a double play that ended the innings. In the fourth, Burnett struck out the first two batters before hitting Miguel Montero in the left foot. Montero made it to third on Aaron Hills single but first baseman Ryan Howard caught Ross sharp grounder to end the threat. With one out in the third, Owings tripled over the head of Byrd. Burnett helped himself by snagging McCarthys sharp grounder, and Gerardo Parra flied out. Parra doubled with two outs in the eighth but Prado grounded out. Right after entering the game in the ninth, third baseman Freddy Galvis made a diving stop and threw out Paul Goldschmidt from his knees. NOTES: The Phillies Cody Asche struck out four times. ... McCarthys previous career best was 10 strikeouts, accomplished three times. ... Ruiz had the day off after hitting .393 on the trip with seven RBIs in eight games. ... Owings made a diving stab of Utleys line drive to start the fourth inning. ... The Phils open a two-game home series against the New York Mets on Tuesday night. LHP Cole Hamels (0-1, 3.00 ERA) starts for Philadelphia against LHP Jonathon Niese (1-2, 2.45) for New York. ... Arizonas homestand continues with a three-game series against Colorado, Wade Miley (2-2, 4.50) pitches for the Diamondbacks vs. Franklin Morales (2-1, 3.86) Monday. ... Goldschmidt was 0 for 4 in the game, 1 for 11 in the series. Thiago Motta Jersey . - Albert Pujols departure from the St. Paris Saint-Germain Jersey . Aspen quickly followed suit, and ticket prices at resorts across the country have consistently increased in the years since.ST. LOUIS -- Derek Roy needed less than 2 minutes to redeem himself Thursday night. After taking what he called a "stupid" penalty, the St. Louis centre scored a power-play goal to start a four-goal blitz that led the Blues to a 5-1 win over the struggling New York Islanders. St. Louis won for the sixth time in eight games. The Islanders have lost eight straight overall (0-6-2) and eight in a row on the road. David Backes, Jay Bouwmeester, Magnus Paajarvi and Brenden Morrow also scored for the Blues, who improved to 12-1-2 at home and tied Boston (12-3-2) for the most home wins in the NHL. Jaroslav Halak made 22 saves and upped his record to 15-4-2. Andrew MacDonald scored for the Islanders, who are 2-11-2 in their last 15 games. Roy took a tripping penalty that led to MacDonalds tying power-play goal at 5:19 of the second period. "I was pretty mad about the penalty," Roy said. "And they ended up scoring on it. When I got out of the box, I wanted to redeem myself -- and luckily I got the chance to." Roy pounced on the rebound of a shot from Kevin Shattenkirk to give the Blues a 2-1 lead at 7:02. "I think he felt better about himself," St. Louis coach Ken Hitchcock said of Roy. "His goal seemed to energize us." Just more than 2 minutes later, Backes scored a power-play goal on a wrist shot from the top of the circle. Paajarvi increased the advantage to 4-1 with his second of the season, capping a three-goal burst in 7:57. "It was a huge period for us," Paajarvi said. "The whole team really came back to its game." St. Louis was 3 for 6 on the power play after managing one goal in its previous 10 chancees. Presnel Kimpembe Jersey. "The power-play goals really put us in a hole," New York centre John Tavares said. "Its the same thing again. (Were) just not good enough." St. Louis power play struggled in back-to-back losses to San Jose and Los Angeles, the teams first two-game regulation losing skid of the season. Shattenkirk, who assisted on two man-advantage goals Thursday, said the club made it a point to shore up the unit. "We just got back to simple things, getting pucks to the net and working on winning the battles," he said. "We got back to what we do best: shooting pucks and getting bodies out in front." New York goalie Anders Nilsson lost for the first time in regulation in his third start of the season. He made 21 saves. "We all know in the locker room that we have to step it up," Nilsson said. "Everybody has got to look in the mirror and see what you can do better." The Islanders, who are 3-10-0 on the road, have given up a league-high 27 power-play goals. "Its tough what were going through," Tavares said. "The only thing that is going to get us out of it is better execution." NOTES: The Blues are 11-0-1 when leading after the first period. ... Islanders G Evgeni Nabokov, who is out with a groin injury, practiced Wednesday and could rejoin the team in a week. ... New York started a five-game road swing that will end Dec. 12 in Phoenix. ... Paajarvi was back in the lineup after missing the previous game with the flu. ... St. Louis won the previous meeting between the teams 5-1 on Feb. 16, 2012. ... The Blues killed off 15 successive penalties at home before MacDonalds power-play goal in the second period. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

The former world number beat Zahlavova-Strycova, 6-3, 6-2, with her opponent also playing in her first major tournament final. Although Ivanovic started shakily for the second day in succession, and dropped serve immediately, she recovered quickly, her heavy ground strokes and willingness to attack soon dominating her unseeded opponent.

"Its always nice having a lead, although 2-nothing in Colorado, you know youre not going to go out there and be like, OK, let me hold this 2-nothing lead the rest of the game," Correia said. "But it was definitely nice to get that run support early, and it was nice to be able to mix in (his) hit." Tyler Matzek (1-4) allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings in the loss, his fourth straight since winning his major league debut. "The first inning was the only inning I wasnt comfortable throwing," Matzek said. "After that, I felt I was making good pitches. Balls were finding a few holes. And some went down the line. The home run came on a good pitch." Up 4-1, the Twins secured the win with a three-run eighth inning. Pinch-hitter Chris Parmelee hit a bases-loaded single to drive in a pair, and the third run scored on Doziers sacrifice fly. Minnesota tacked on two more runs in the ninth on an RBI single by Kurt Suzuki and an obstruction call on Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado. Correia worked out of trouble in the fifth. After giving up consecutive one-out singles, including a run-scoring basehit by Charlie Blackmon, Correia induced Troy Tulowitzki to ground into an inning-ending double play. "He was cutting the ball on us really good," Rockies manager Walt Weiss said of Correia. "Going away from the righties and in on the lefties. We put a lot of balls in the air. We didnt quite get to them." Blackmon finished 5 for 5 for his 29th multihit game of the season, including a career-best six-hit game against Arizona on April 4. Matzek was in trouble from the outset, falling behind 2-0 three batters into the game. Dozier led off with a double, Escobar reached on a fielders choice and Kendrys Morales followed with a double to score them both. Escobar put the Twins up 3-0 when he started the third with a homer, his third of the season, and Correia, whose run support is lowest among Twins starters, helped himself with a two-out RBI double in the fourth that he drove down the third-base line. Matzek walked one and struck out two. NOTES: Rockies LHP Brett Anderson (0-2) is set to come off the 60-day disabled list to start Sundays series finale against the Twins in his first appearance since April 12 at San Francisco, when he broke his left index finger during an at bat. Hell be opposed by RHP Phil Hughes (9-5). ... Correia last had an RBI on July 28, 2011, at Atlanta while with Pittsburgh. ... Scott Baker was the last Twins pitcher to double in a game on May 21, 2011, at Arizona. ... The Twins improved to 5-9 in interleague play. Colorado fell to 6-8. ... Colorado got two ninth-inning runs on Carlos Gonzalezs RBI double and Tulowitzkis run-scoring groundout. Karim Benzema Jersey . The Minnesota manager was chosen along with Clevelands Terry Francona as coaches to join AL manager John Farrell of Boston in the July 15 All-Star game at Target Field. Antoine Griezmann Jersey . JOHNS, N.Big contributions from small players and three shutouts on a night of lopsided scores; injury news, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Sami Vatanen – The Ducks blueliner had a goal and two assists in a 4-3 overtime loss at Calgary, giving him 16 points in 20 games this season. Only Mark Giordano (21) and Brent Burns (18) have more points among defencemen this season and Vatanen’s 12 power-play points leads all blueliners. While Vatanen is a veritable beast with the man advantage, he hasnt been ideal in possession terms, with a 48.3% Corsi to this point in the year, down from 53.6% last season. Brian Gionta – After going without a goal in his first 19 games with his new team, the Sabres’ captain scored two goals and an assist in a 4-1 win over San Jose. Gionta’s points per game (0.30) and shots per game (1.70) are at career-low rates, mired in the muck of the situation in which the Sabres find themselves this season. Shutouts – Tuukka Rask – Stopped all 33 St. Louis shots he faced in Boston’s 2-0 shutout win. Rask is coming around, after a slow start, posting a .935 save percentage in seven November games, after an .899 save percentage in October. Jimmy Howard – Had a 28-save shutout in Detroit’s 5-0 win at Columbus, his best start of the season, following his worst (four goals on 19 shots against Montreal Sunday). Marc-Andre Fleury – Recorded a 27-save shutout in Pittsburgh’s 4-0 win at Montreal. It was Fleury’s league-leading fourth shutout and he has a .930 save percentage, which is a career-high. ZEROES Goalies – Jonathan Bernier & James Reimer – They weren’t the only Maple Leafs to blame – there was plenty of company in that dressing room (Roman Polak and Peter Holland were both minus-4, for example) -- but a combined nine goals on 37 shots is a .757 save percentage. Troy Grosenick – After stopping 45 shots in his NHL debut, Grosenick followed up by allowing three goals on 13 shots in San Jose’s 4-1 loss at Buffalo. Grosenick had a .905 save percentage in 45 AHL games before getting called up, so it’s not reasonable to expect him to be a difference-maker in the NHL. Kari Lehtonen – The Stars’ goaltender surrendered four goals on 16 shots before getting pulled against Carolina. Devils’ fourth line – The line of Steve Bernier, Dainius Zubrus and Stephen Gionta was stuck in the defensive zone at Winnipeg, none more than Bernier, who had no shot attempts for and 10 against at even strength. Flames burned – Left winger Sven Baertschi has had an up-and-down ride since getting called up and was down Tuesday against Anaheim, on for zero shot attempts for and nine against, while rookie centre Josh Jooris did manage to get on for one shot attempt for at even strength, with 21 against ( LINEUP NEED TO KNOW David Krejci – Boston’s centre returned to action Tuesday, after missing nearly two weeks with a lower-body injury. He returned to a spot between Milan Lucic and Seth Griffith. Brad Marchand – Boston’s agitating winger missed Tuesday’s game against St. Louis with an undisclosed injury. Matt Fraser took his spot on the wing with Patrice Bergeron and Reilly Smith. Ryan Johansen – Columbus’ leading scorer was benched in the third period after an ill-advised roughing penalty – it took Detroit eight seconds on the PP to take a 2-0 game to 3-0 – and Johansen was held without a shot attempt in 15:41 of ice time. Olli Maatta – Two weeks after having surgery to remove a cancerous tumour, the Penguins’ second-year blueliner played 20:14 at Montreal. No big deal, apparently. Adam Henrique – Returning to the New Jersey lineup for the first time in a couple of weeks, Henrique centered a line with Tuomo Ruutu and Damien Brunner in the Devils’ 3-1 loss at Winnipeg. Rocco Grimaldi – With Aleksander Barkov ill, the Panthers’ prospect played in the AHL in the morning – held off the scoresheet in a 4-3 San Antonio win over Oklahoma City – then was called up to join the Panthers in L.A. for the night game, centering a line with Scottie Upshall and Tomas Kopecky. Martin Hanzal – Sat out Arizona’s 2-1 overtime loss to Washington with aa lower-body injury and Kyle Chipchura moved in to his spot, playing centre on a line with Martin Erat and Tobias Rieder. NGolo Kante Jersey. Kris Russell – The Flames defenceman is out with a lower-body injury, which resulted in Ladislav Smid taking on a bigger role, playing a season-high 21:13 against Anaheim. David Jones – The Flames winger is out with a lower-body injury. He played a season-low 9:45 Saturday against Ottawa and was replaced in the lineup – and on a line with Curtis Glencross and Sean Monahan – by Devin Setoguchi Tuesday. Adam McQuaid – The Bruins defenceman, who had been playing a bigger role with so many injuries on the Boston blueline, left early in the win over St. Louis after blocking a shot from Kevin Shattenkirk. If McQuaid is out, the Bruins have to hope that Kevan Miller will be ready to return soon or may need to dip into the AHL, again, just to have six healthy defencemen. Michal Neuvirth – Buffalo’s started left with a lower-body injury after stopping all 10 shots he faced in the first period against San Jose. He was replaced by Jhonas Enroth and goalie coach Arturs Irbe was the Sabres’ emergency backup goaltender. Cedric Paquette – Tampa Bay’s rookie checking centre left Tuesday’s loss to the Islanders with a lower-body injury, playing only 2:40. Going into the game, Paquette had scored five goals in the previous six games and played a career-high 16:25 the game before. Tyson Strachan – The journeyman defenceman is getting lots of work in Buffalo with Josh Gorges sidelined. Strachan played 24:24 against San Jose, (4 shot attempts for, 20 against, 16.7%), his most in an NHL game aside from three late-season games with Florida in March and April of 2013.

ut to lead his team over the Binghamton Senators 1-0 in American Hockey Leagu

ST. Thomas Vermaelen Barcelona Jersey . JOHNS, N.L. -- The sound of the final buzzer going off on Saturday night was music to St. Johns IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinsons ears. Hutchinson earned a 42-save shutout to lead his team over the Binghamton Senators 1-0 in American Hockey League action. "I was pretty excited when the final buzzer went," Hutchinson said. "I didnt even realize when it first went off, I was getting ready for the guy who was about to take a shot. "After that, everything hits you and you start reflecting and enjoying it once you get in the locker room." IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge said the star of the game tonight was an expected one. "I thought our best player was obviously who everybody knows it was, its Hutchinson," McCambridge said. "It was all him. He bailed us out numerous times, and credit the guys who were blocking shots." The IceCaps were aware what they were up against playing the Senators, who lead the league in goals scored this year. "They are the number one ranked team offensively in the league, and they showed that tonight," McCambridge said. "We turned over too many pucks, to give them opportunities." Hutchinson says playing against a team with the offensive production of the Senators is a welcome challenge. "Its always really fun to play when we play against a team with as much offensive power as Binghamton has," Hutchinson said. "You know youre going to face shots and youre going to be relied on." Eric ODell scored for the IceCaps (34-19-4). Andrew Hammond made 24 saves for the Senators (33-19-4). St. Johns opened the scoring 11:41 into the game, as Kael Mouillierat found ODell headed to the net. ODell finished off a low one-time wrist shot. St. Johns was outshot 17-8 through the first period but held on to the lead due to strong play from Hutchinson. Halfway through the second period, Hutchinson made the save of the night, sprawling with his left pad to shut down Corey Cowick on a cross-crease opportunity to preserve the lead. Rafinha Barcelona Jersey . A steal of two in the ninth sealed the win over Swedish skip Margaretha Sigfridsson, who throws lead stones but calls the shots as skip. Jones has now added Olympic gold to the world championship she won in 2008 as well as four Canadian crowns. Jeremy Mathieu Jersey .No terms were released but a raise was expected. The 27-year-old right back was a bargain at US$48,825 in 2014 and $46,500 in 2013.BALTIMORE - Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson will have an MRI on his right foot after he was forced out of Sundays game against the Baltimore Ravens. Peterson, the NFLs leading rusher, left in the second quarter after being tackled on an icy field. "I really dont know too much about it. Ill find out more (Monday) after I get my MRI done, but yeah, mid-foot sprain," said Peterson, who was limping but without crutches after Minnesotas 29-26 loss. "We did X-rays, and it came back pretty clear," he said. At the time of the injury, Peterson recalled thinking, "I hope I didnt break anything; thats what it felt like." Peterson caught a short pass from Matt Cassel and headed to the right sideline. He was tackled by Arthur Brown near the Minnesota bench and immediately threw away the ball as he headed down toward the slick turf. "I haventt seen the replay, but my foot was extended and kind of got rolled up, kind of like a horse-collar tackle type," Peterson said. Jordi Masip Jersey. "I just felt it pop a couple times and the pain was excruciating. I came in and tried to tape it up again after getting the X-ray done. I just couldnt do it with the push off." Peterson, the 2012 NFL MVP, began the day as the NFL rushing leader with 1,208 yards. He expects to add to that total in the weeks ahead. Asked if this could be a season-ending injury, he said, "Not at all. You should have seen me in here trying to get back out there. I kept my pads on, too, until the third quarter, until I finally was just like, Im not ready to go." Peterson missed four games in the 2011 season with a torn knee ligament. "Not my knee at all. It was all my ankle and foot area," he said of this injury. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

While talking to reporters during the first intermission of Game 4 on Wednesday night, Robidas got emotional when asked about the disappointment of missing the rest of the playoffs.MONTREAL -- The Edmonton Oilers taught Montreal Canadiens forward Lars Eller a tough lesson. Eller said the Oilers were a "junior team" that was "all over the place" before Edmontons 4-3 victory over Montreal on Tuesday night, Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins took offence to Ellers comments and used it to motivate his youthful team. "When youve got some young player whos trying to get his feet wet calling an organization a junior team, people take notice," said Eakins. "I knew it was going to turn. It makes for great banter in our dressing room. "That is a total hockey god thing. Im sure that young man has learnt his lesson, and I highly doubt youll see anything like that out of his mouth again." Eller, Montreals leading goal-scorer, had only one shot on net and didnt earn any points in the loss. "Hes a young player," said Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien of Eller. "I think hell learn from that. He made inappropriate comments." Ales Hemsky and Ladislav Smid both scored in the second period for Edmonton (3-6-1) to tie the game 2-2.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was at the heart of Edmontons turnaround with two assists. "I got a huge momentum boost from (Eakins) talk between periods," said Nugent-Hopkins. "That was big for us. I thought we responded well. "Its what we needed at that point. We were losing battles, we werent playing with the passion that we need to win games in that situation." With the win, the Oilers ended a six-game road trip on a high. They went 2-3-1 on that stretch, and sit in last place in the Pacific Division. Plekanec put the Canadiens on the board first when he scored a power-play goal at 16:36 of the firrst period. Cheap China Jerseys.

Plekanec made no mistake slotting home his fourth goal of the season between Devan Dubnyks legs. Rookie Michael Bournival got an assist on the play. Gallagher increased Montreals lead less than two minutes later. Gallagher intercepted a poor clearance by the Oilers Jones and beat Dubnyk glove-side with a quick wrist shot. Edmonton answered with two goals of its own in quick succession. Hemsky scored the first at 12:50 of the second period, getting around Alex Galchenyuk with ease and beating Price above the shoulder. Smid then tied the game 2-2 with his first of the year, when he put the rebound of a Nugent-Hopkins shot into a gaping net at 15:37. Edmonton completed the comeback when Petry scored at 7:59 of the third. Nugent-Hopkins pretended to shoot on a 2-on-1, but instead dished the puck to Petry who made no mistake from close range. Jones put the game out of reach, scoring the eventual game-winner at 9:57. Brian Gionta scored a late consolation goal for the Canadiens with three seconds remaining. "We cant expect to play one period and win," said Gionta. "We had a great start, we did what we wanted to, we stuck to our game plan for the first period, and we didnt adjust after that. "We have to do a better job of finding a way to play 60 minutes." The injury-plagued Canadiens were without the services of Max Pacioretty, Brandon Prust and Daniel Briere. All three forwards sustained injuries last week. Edmonton was missing star forward Taylor Hall and veteran Ryan Smyth. Hall, who injured his knee on Saturday in the Oilers win over Ottawa, is expected to be out four weeks. Rookie defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, who was sent down to Hamilton on the weekend, was recalled by the Canadiens and played in place of Jarred Tinordi. Beaulieu finished the game with three blocked shots and 11:26 of ice time. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

h John Loyer said of his reserves, who helped the team end a two-game sk

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. Under Armour Cheap Shoes . -- Rodney Stuckey pulled the Pistons out of trouble. Stuckey came off the bench to score 26 points and the Detroit reserves helped wipe out a 19-point deficit as the Pistons topped Boston 115-111. Stuckeys free throws with 57 seconds left broke a 111-all tie and gave Detroit the lead for good. "They got us back in with their energy," coach John Loyer said of his reserves, who helped the team end a two-game skid. The Pistons trailed by 19 points in third quarter and were down 95-85 at the start of the fourth before embarking on a 15-4 run that gave them their first lead since early in the game. The teams traded the lead several times before Stuckeys free throws. Bostons Jerryd Bayless tried for a go-ahead shot in the final seconds but his 3-point try rimmed out. Greg Monroe had 21 points and Brandon Jennings added 20 for Detroit, which also got 19 and 20 rebounds from Andre Drummond, who tied the game at 111 on a tip with 1:52 to play. Thirteen of his caroms were on the offensive glass, giving him 402 this season and making him the most prolific single-season offensive rebounder since 2000. "I pride myself on getting offensive rebounds," Drummond said. "Thats how I get my points." Jerryd Bayless had 25 points and Jeff Green added 22 for the Celtics, who lost their eighth straight and have dropped 12 in a row on the road. Bostons lead was 82-63 midway through the third before Detroit rallied produced a handful of runs to keep the lead from getting past 20. Pistons reserve Jonas Jerebko had consecutive 3-pointers midway through the final period to give the Pistons a lead. Rookie Peyton Siva had all five of his career-best five assists in the fourth. "The reason we won the game was Peyton Siva," Drummond said. "His energy in the fourth quarter was tremendous. He ran the show. The Celtics looked sharp from the field in the first three quarters but had several droughts in the final period. They had just six field goals and 16 points in the fourth and did not score in the final three minutes. "I thought we let off the gas defensively a couple of times and all of a sudden, instead of a 19-point game, its a 13- or 12-point game," Boston coach Brad Stevens said. "We have seen that time and again in this league that those leads go quick." Bostons Jared Sullinger, one of the worst 3-point shooters (.253 per cent) in the league, made his first four tries from behind the arc. He scored 22 points and had 10 rebounds Saturday night in place of the injured Kris Humphries. Rookie Phil Pressey added a career-best 11 assists. Boston guard Rajon Rondo, who had a triple double in Fridays loss to Philadelphia, did not play Saturday. Hes missed the second game of back-to-back nights since he returned to the roster in January. NOTES: Drummonds offensive rebound total is the most since New Jerseys Jayson Williams (443) and Chicagos Dennis Rodman (421) during the 1997-98 season. . Detroits bench outscored Bostons 38-11. . Humphries missed the game after injuring his right patella tendon in the loss to Philadelphia. . The Celtics last road win was Feb. 10 at Milwaukee. . Detroit hadnt won consecutive home games since mid-February. Stephen Curry 2 Shoes For Sale .

.We were making plays that would make a sixth-grader blush, the first-ye

HOUSTON - Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr cant figure out how his team is still undefeated. Gianluca Lapadula Jersey .After a 98-87 victory over the depleted Houston Rockets on Saturday night gave the Warriors their first 5-0 start in 20 years, Kerr laughed about his clubs 26 turnovers.We were making plays that would make a sixth-grader blush, the first-year rookie coach said. Its shocking to me that we have so much talent, and if they would just make the easier play, then the game would be simpler and wed be in great shape.When asked how the Warriors were able to overcome an eight-point halftime deficit and outscore the Rockets 50-31 in the second half, Kerr simply said, We have this guy named Steph Curry. Hes pretty good.Curry had 34 points and 10 rebounds in a matchup of undefeated teams, scoring 23 in a pivotal second half that was highlighted by a 22-4 run over the opening 7 minutes of the third quarter.At halftime, it felt like a funeral in here, Curry said. Guys were down and we couldnt figure out why we couldnt establish a rhythm.Curry shot 6 for 9 from 3-point range and finished with five assists and four steals.The only unbeaten team in the NBA, the Warriors improved to 5-0 for the first time since the 1994-95 season, when Golden State finished 26-56 under coach Don Nelson.Houston played without centre Dwight Howard (flu-like symptoms) and power forward Terrence Jones (bruised right leg), which made things much easier for the Warriors inside.They outscored the Rockets 56-32 in the paint, and Warriors centre Andrew Bogut dominated the glass in Howards absence, pulling down 18 rebounds.James Harden led the Rockets (6-1) with 22 points, and point guard Isaiah Canaan had 21 in place of Patrick Beverley (hamstring).We were stagnant. We didnt move, Houston coach Kevin McHale said. We had too many turnovers, and we just ran out of gas.Playing without their two starting big men, the Rockets attempted an NBA season-high 42 3-pointers, making just 10, for their worst shooting performance (23.8 per cent) of the young season. They entered the game leading the NBA at 43.1 per cent from beyond the arc but struggled mightily to knock down open shots.We missed shots, we had opportunities, and we didnt attack the paint like we wanted to, Harden said.Golden State fell behind early as Klay Thompson played only 10 minutes in the first half after picking up his third foul early in the second quarter. Thompson finished with 11 points.Donatas Motiejunas hit a 3-pointer at the first-half buzzer to give the Rockets a 56-48 lead.The Warriors quickly erased the deficit in the third quarter as Houston went 1 of 12 on 3-pointers. The Rockets entered the fourth quarter trailing for the first time this season and were unable to mount a comeback.___TIP-INSWarriors: Bogut had 14 defensive rebounds, and Golden State outrebounded the undersized Rockets 54-46.Rockets: Making the first starts of their NBA careers, forward Kostas Papanikolaou and centre Tarik Black combined for four points and 15 rebounds in the absence of Howard and Jones.UP NEXTGolden State remains on the road Sunday against the Phoenix Suns, who have lost three of four since a 2-0 start.The Rockets rest until Wednesday, when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves.COLD STARTThe Rockets and Warriors entered ranked first and fifth, respectively, in 3-point shooting, both topping 40 per cent.

Dating to last season, they have the longest such streak in the NBA and are three games shy of the league record. Manuel Locatelli Jersey . The blockbuster trade that will send Kevin Love to team up with LeBron James in Cleveland will be completed on Saturday, making the Cavaliers an instant favourite in the Eastern Conference and turning Andrew Wiggins into something of an anomaly. Luiz Adriano Jersey . - Forget about the surprisingly small number in the win column.Join TSN.ca in a 30 Teams In 30 Days tour of the NHL in preparation for the upcoming season. Today, we examine the 2011-12 campaign for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Get the lowdown on their off-season and the issues they face this season. And use the Your Call feature to give us your take! Few teams overhauled their roster before free agency opened the way the Blue Jackets did. Columbus pounced on the Philadelphia Flyers unexpected talent sale and scooped up Jeff Carter just before the Entry Draft kicked off and then beat the rest of the league to James Wisniewski by acquiring his rights from Montreal. The pair adds instant punch to one of the NHLs lowest-scoring teams from last season and added some veteran pedigree to help take the load off Rick Nashs shoulders. The pressures on as the team enters its tenth season and for a team thats never won a playoff game, you can bet that General Manager Scott Howson expects immediate results after spending significant coin and precious future assets. Additions: C Cody Bass, C Jeff Carter, LW Alexandre Giroux, D Aaron Johnson, D Radek Martinek, LW Vaclav Prospal, C Ryan Russell, G Curtis Sanford, D James Wisniewski Subtractions: RW Mike Blunden, D Mike Commodore, LW Nikita Filatov, G Mathieu Garon, D Jan Hejda, D Sami Lepisto, C Andrew Murray, RW Scottie Upshall, RW Jakub Voracek Prospect Report: The man to watch in the Jackets system is 2010 fourth-overall pick Ryan Johansen. His promise and talent is part of the reason the Jackets didnt flinch when they gave up the sixth overall pick in the Carter trade. Johansen put up 40 goals in 63 games last year in Portland and was named to the World Junior Tournament All-Star Team. Others to keep an eye on include American blueliner John Moore, who may be ready to snatch the roster spot opened up by the teams decision to let Anton Stralman walk. The team also did well to get a first-round talent in the second round of the 2011 draft by grabbing two-way scoring threat Boone Jenner. Breakout Player to Watch: With over 200 career NHL games under his belt, it could be the time for Derrick Brassard to take it up a notch. The 2006 first-rounder has been hit hard by injuries since entering the league and he had a solid campaign last year with 47 points in 74 games. A full season could see him reach the 60-point mark. At 26, Grant Clitsome has certainly been a late-bloomer. His 19 points in 31 games last season could see him get more power play time. Marquee Match-Up: Oct. 22 at Ottawa - A New Future. The Blue Jackets have historically had mixed luck with their top prospects. While they hit a home run with Rick Nash, several high picks have missed expectations - including Nikolay Zherdev, Gilbert Brule and most recently, Nikita Filatov. The Senators took a chance that Filatov just wasnt meant for Columbus, and if he finally sticks in the NHL, he may well want to show the Blue Jackets what theyre missing. Other Dates to Watch: Sep. 20 at Winnipeg - The Blue Jackets become the first team to line up against the new Jets as they kick-off pre-season action at the MTS Centre. Nov. 5 at Philadelphia - Jeff Carter gets a crack at revenge aafter the Flyers pulled the chute on his career in Philly. Jherson Vergara Jersey. Dec. 6 at Montreal - James Wisniewski gets his opportunity to show the Canadiens why the Jackets threw $33 million his way. Reason to Get Excited: This Blue Jackets have been built with only one thing in mind... goals. The team will hope to victimize opposing teams that are foolish enough to give Nash and Carter space in the offensive zone or fail to respect Wisniewskis point shot. If any one of Brassard, Vermette or R.J. Umberger can elevate their game to the 60-plus point level, the Jackets could wind up being one of the Wests more explosive offensive teams. If they can rack up a few lopsided victories early, it could end up being the difference between the first round of the playoffs and the draft lottery. Home Hardware: You have to feel bad for Rick Nash. He can be a one-man wrecking crew, but every opposing team knows that and covers him accordingly. If Carter can draw defenders away from Nash, he could hit an all-time high in goals and capture the Rocket Richard once more. Of course, it could work out the other way around and Jeff Carter could walk away with the trophy. The Jackets would probably be happy either way. On The Hot Seat: The Jackets will have to sink or swim with Steve Mason. Mason has been average since his phenomenal Calder campaign in 2008-09, posting a save-percentage around the .900 mark and a goals-against-average over 3.00 in each of the past two years. Mason posted 10 shutouts in his rookie season, but has only blanked the opposition eight times in the past two seasons combined. The team should score more goals this year, but that will be only a small consolation if Mason is anything less than stellar. Now goaltender Mark Dekanich has arrived from Nashville (Milwaukee) to back up Chris Mason. If Mason struggles again, Dekanich might see significant playing time. Its Your! Call: Is Columbus the future is now strategy the best course of action for a historically under-achieving franchise?  Columbus is one of two existing NHL clubs to never have won a playoff game. The Atlanta Thrashers were in the same boat, but a fresh start in Winnipeg means the club can forget about that for the time being and focus on building a new legacy as a new team. While every franchise experiences post-expansion growing pains, the Jackets are now entering their second decade in the league and continue to be a bottom-10 team in the league. At what point does the teams philosophy have to change in order to right the ship? The team spent a lot of cash this summer to try to keep up in the Western Conference, but in addition to that, they also gave up a very good draft pick that could have brightened the future in the event that the teams fortunes dont change. While none of Sean Couturier, Dougie Hamilton or Ryan Murphy are guaranteed to sell extra seats in the Ohio Capital, another top prospect would have been a nice safety net for the organizations future if 2011-12 brings no improvement in the standings. But this team has gone that route for its entire existence with very little to show for it. So, is Columbus the future is now strategy the best course of action for a historically under-achieving franchise? Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

is teammates expect him to be around and play a role in their success

METAIRIE, La. Dan Skuta Jaguars Jersey . -- Jonathan Vilmas season is over and his future on the football field is in doubt. The New Orleans Saints placed Vilma to injured reserve, ending his season -- and possibly his career -- only three days after he had returned for his first game of this season. Still, his teammates expect him to be around and play a role in their success going forward. "Hes the heart and soul (of the defence). His voice speaks very, very loud," veteran safety Roman Harper said. "Hes always with us. He taught me how to play this game. Theres a mental aspect of what he brings to a team and the leadership aspect is matched by none. Hell still be around and still be doing whatever he needs to do. "Weve always called him player-coach anyway," Harper added. "He knows everything." Vilma began the season on short-term injured reserve because of an arthroscopic procedure in August on his left knee, which has troubled him through multiple surgeries over the past two-plus seasons. The designation allowed the 10th-year linebacker to return to practice in Week 8 and to the active roster in Week 9. Vilma was activated Saturday and played 12 defensive snaps in a 26-20 loss to his former team, the New York Jets, on Sunday. That represented about 20 per cent of the Saints defensive snaps. He was credited with one tackle. Vilma was not present in the locker room at Saints headquarters when it was open to reporters on Wednesday. After Sundays game, Vilma said he "felt fine," but added that he was eager to see how his knee responded in the coming days. "It felt good to get back on the field to run around, really be with the guys, be with my teammates," Vilma said. Coach Sean Payton did not explain or even acknowledge the roster move when he met with reporters after practice Wednesday, about two hours before it had been formally posted by the NFL. Payton generally declines to address roster moves until theyve been made official. However, the coach on Monday offered few compliments when asked about Vilmas return to action in New York. "He looked OK, rusty," Payton said. "There are some things that we have to get cleaned up." Vilma was traded by the Jets to the Saints in 2008 and was a captain of the 2009 Super Bowl championship team. For his first four seasons in New Orleans, Vilma started at middle linebacker and was designated as the on-field defensive play-caller, with the earpiece in his helmet that allowed him to hear the defensive co-ordinators instructions before each play. That ended last season, when Vilma was unable to train with the Saints for much of the off-season because of his suspension in connection with the NFLs bounty probe. The league named Vilma a ring-leader in a cash-for-hits program administered by former defensive co-ordinator Gregg Williams. Vilma denied the allegations and his suspension was overturned, but he still missed the first five games of 2012 while rehabilitating his knee. His 2012 off-season procedures included one in Germany by a specialist in platelet rich plasma therapy, a relatively new blood-spinning technique also used by Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant and New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez. Vilma played the final 11 games of last season, but not at his regular middle linebacker spot, which was assumed by Curtis Lofton. "The thing about JV is hes very cerebral, just like having a coach in there. He sees stuff I dont see because Im playing. He sees the whole picture," Lofton said, describing Vilmas exhaustive studies of opponents game video. "Hes just been a great player for this team for many years. Its just a tough break for him. He spent a lot of time getting his knee ready to come back." Notes: The Saints re-signed veteran CB Chris Carr, whod been released last week to make room on the roster for Vilma. ... RB Darren Sproles, who left last Sundays game in New York with concussion symptoms, practiced fully on Wednesday. ... Those missing practice were: S Malcolm Jenkins (knee), G Jahri Evans (hip), TE Jimmy Graham (elbow,foot), LB David Hawthorne (toe) and DE Cam Jordan (ankle). ... Two players were listed as limited: S Kenny Vaccaro (chest) and WR Marques Colston (knee). Luke Joeckel Jaguars Jersey . - Grizzlies controlling owner Robert Pera has removed the interim tag and named Chris Wallace as Memphis general manager, signing him to a multi-year contract keeping him with the franchise. Malik Jackson Jaguars Jersey . -- Jon Lester got a rousing ovation the first time he pitched in an Oakland uniform.TORONTO - Minnesota Twins right-hander Mike Pelfrey has undergone elbow surgery and will be sidelined for at least two months. Pelfrey, who had Tommy John surgery on the same elbow in 2012, had scar tissue removed Tuesday to relieve pressure on a nerve. The problem had been causing tingling in his fingers since spring training and led to reduced velocity on his pitches. The surgery was performed by Dr. Jaames Andrews, who also operated on Pelfrey in 2012. Davon House Jaguars Jersey. A nine-year veteran who has also pitched for the New York Mets, Pelfrey is 0-3 with a 7.99 ERA in five starts this season. Pelfrey has been sidelined since May 2 with a strained left groin, and his velocity dropped even more while he was pitching at Triple-A on a rehab assignment. That led to tests, which revealed the nerve issue. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys ChinaNFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

nutes, 44.45 secon

Sochi, Russia (SportsNetwork. Michy Batshuayi Chelsea Jersey .com) - Speed skating has belonged to the Netherlands at the Sochi Olympics and that did not change on Tuesday. The Dutch swept another event, grabbing three more medals in the mens 10,000 meters at Adler Arena. Jorrit Bergsma was the top finisher in Tuesdays event, setting an Olympic record with a time of 12 minutes, 44.45 seconds in the grueling race. Sven Kramer was 4.57 seconds off Bergsmas time, while Bob de Jong finished at a distant 13:07.19 seconds, 22.74 ticks off Bergsmas incredible time. Still, de Jong earned bronze and gave the Netherlands a total of 19 medals in speed skating during these Olympics. Twelve of those medals have been won by the men. It marked the fourth event in Sochi that the Dutch have swept. The women won all three medals in the 1,500 meters, while the men also filled the podium in the 500 and 5,000 meters. Bergsma claimed a bronze in the mens 5,000 back on Feb. 8, with Kramer taking gold. However, it was the 28-year-old Bergsma coming out on top Tuesday in a repeat of his first-place finish at the 2013 World Single Distances Championships, also held in Sochi. For Kramer, he may view his silver as a disappointment. The 27-year-old, who picked up his sixth Olympic medal with his second of Sochi, was in line to win this event four years ago in Vancouver, but was disqualified for an illegal lane change. It also was the fourth Olympic medal of de Jongs career and each has come in this event. That includes a gold in 2006 and a bronze four years ago. South Koreas Lee Seung-Hoon, who took gold in Vancouver after Kramers DQ, finished fourth on Tuesday with a time of 13:11.68. American Emery Lehman, 17, finished 10th, one spot ahead of fellow U.S. skater Patrick Meek. Chelsea Jersey . Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was being investigated for sexual assault, and his Heisman Trophy stock was falling. Eden Hazard Chelsea Jersey . A quick first step to get to the hoop for a layup. A rousing dunk on the break off a high outlet pass saved by teammate Ramon Sessions.WINNIPEG -- Rookie Winnipeg Jets goaltender Michael Hutchinson couldnt stop grinning after his first NHL win Thursday night. That will happen when its a 2-1 shootout victory against the NHL-leading Boston Bruins, a team that cast him aside. Hutchinson, who made 32 saves in only his second NHL game, was drafted by the Bruins in the third round (77th overall) in the 2008 entry draft and was signed by the Jets prior to this season. "You really want that first win against them, kind of show them what they gave up on," said the 24-year-old. Bryan Little scored in the shootout in what was Winnipegs (36-35-10) last home game of the season. They finish the schedule Friday in Calgary. Little beat Bruins netminder Chad Johnson with a low shot between his pads, the only scorer in three rounds. Olli Jokinen missed for Winnipeg, while Reilly Smith, Ryan Spooner and Brad Marchand missed for the Bruins. Marchand did score Bostons only goal of the game in the first period. Jets forward Evander Kane took a pass from leading scorer Blake Wheeler and tied the game 1-1 with a wrist shot that beat Johnson over his glove with 1:57 left in the third period. Just a couple of minutes earlier, Kane had hit the post after fans started chanting "Go Jets Go" to try to propel their team to a victory. Jokinen was called for holding with 40 seconds left in overtime, but Hutchinson made a snapping glove save on a blast from David Krejci with seven seconds left to send it to a shootout. "He was outstanding," Wheeler said of Hutchinson, whose first NHL game was a 1-0 loss on Monday against Minnesota. "He really kept us in the game. They had some point-blank opportunities to add to their lead and he kind of put us away and he gave us an opportunity to tie the game." Johnson made 36 saves and Marchand scored his 24th goal of the season at 10:12 of the first period for the Bruins (53-18-9). While Boston has clinched top spot in the Eastern Conference and have 115 points, three ahead of the idle Anaheim Ducks, they have just one win in their last five games (1-1-3). Head coach Claude Julien was none too happy with the latest effort. "We looked like a disinterested team tonight," Julien said. "(The Jets) were determined to have a good, strong finish here and they did. Thibaut Courtois Jersey. . They were the better team tonight from start to finish. "I thought our goaltender was the reason we were able to come out of here with at least a point." The fans gave the Jets a standing ovation after the game, and the players skated to centre ice and raised their sticks toward the sold-out crowd of 15,004 at MTS Centre. It was the third straight season the local fans bid farewell to the Jets without watching a playoff game, and the seventh season in a row the former Atlanta franchise has missed the post-season. "They show up every night and cheer us on hard and were very appreciative of that," Wheeler said. "The results arent where we want them to be so the only thing we can do is try to work on that and improve in the future." Wheeler recorded his 41st assist of the season and 64th point, which bumped up the career-high points hes set this season. The Bruins host Buffalo on Saturday and finish the season Sunday on the road in New Jersey. Marchand agreed with his coach that the team wasnt fine-tuning itself for the playoffs. "It felt more like an exhibition game out there," Marchand said. "The only thing that would have impressed was 1-0 till the last minute. We can play much better hockey than that." Marchand opened the scoring when he used Smiths dumped-in shot off the back boards to beat Hutchinson with a backhand shot. Jarome Iginla almost added to the lead with a breakaway, but Hutchinson came out and stopped the wrist shot with just under four minutes to go in the period. Winnipeg had a 35-31 edge in shots of goal after regulation. "He read those seams perfectly," Jets head coach Paul Maurice said of Hutchinson, who will be returned to the St. Johns IceCaps for their AHL playoffs. "His push was perfect, square on that shot, and he knew where that was going. The players played as hard as they could to give him a chance to be great and win and thats what happened. He was great, we win." Notes: Boston rested centre Patrice Bergeron and defenceman Zdeno Chara. a Winnipeg was without captain Andrew Ladd (elbow) and defenceman Dustin Byfuglin (upper-body), who wont play the final game. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

ad of the Impacts

MONTREAL -- Marco Di Vaio wont be the only proven goal-scorer on the Montreal Impact any more. Matthias Ginter Dortmund Jersey . Winless in four games to open the Major League Soccer season, the Impact (0-3-1) sent 2012 first-overall draft pick Andrew Wenger to the Philadelphia Union for all-star Jack McInerney in a swap of forwards on Friday. The surprise move came a day ahead of the Impacts home game against another team searching for its first victory -- the New York Red Bulls (0-1-3). The 20,000-plus fans expected at Olympic Stadium on Saturday wont get to see the player known as Jack Mac however, as 21-year-old McInerney only begins training with his new team early next week. The 23-year-old Wenger would not have been available anyway, as he is serving a one-game suspension for drawing a red card in Montreals 1-1 tie at Philadelphia last weekend. He will miss the Unions game at Chicago. Wenger was the top pick in the SuperDraft when Montreal entered MLS in 2012, but has struggled to find regular playing time. Impact president Joey Saputo tweeted: "Thank you Andrew. You will always be part of our history." When McInerney is ready to play, coach Frank Klopas will decide whether to have him and Di Vaio on the field at once or alternate them in the one-forward system the team usually employs. "Im excited to play under his wing," McInerney said of Di Vaio. "Hes one of the best finishers MLS has ever had. "I dont know how it will play out on the field, but if we play together its a dream come true. Whether we play together or not, its a great learning experience." The Chattanooga, Tenn., native is in his fifth MLS season. Drafted seventh overall by the Union in 2010, he has a goal and an assist in four games this season and 25 goals and four assists in 95 career MLS games. McInerney had 10 goals in the opening 15 games in 2013, which earned him a chance to have Di Vaio as a teammate for a day at the all-star game. However, the five-foot-10 striker added only two more after returning from more than a month with the U.S. national team at the CONCACAF Gold Cup, where he didnt play and was released after the group stage. He said the inactivity affected his rhythm and his confidence. "My confidence was down and at the same time the team wasnt doing well and thats why it didnt go well for me," he said. He said he was surprised to be traded, but was excited to join the Impact. The Union opted to deal away a player whose contract is up at the end of this season and who was expected to seek a raise. The 2014 salary list is not out yet, but he earned $125,500 last season. McInerney has talked about moving to Europe, but said he would consider signing a new deal with Montreal. Impact sporting director Nick De Santis said McInerney has an option year on his contract and should be with the Impact until the end of the 2015 season. In return, Philadelphia got the six-foot 185-pound Wenger, a native of Lancaster, Pa., who moves back to his home state to pursue his bid to be an regular MLS starter. "Andrew is a young and talented attacking player who we think is a good fit with our style of play," Union coach John Hackworth said. Wenger, a converted defender, has six goals and three assists in 51 career games. He started the first three games this season while Di Vaio sat out a suspension and had one goal -- a header in a season-opening 3-2 loss in Dallas. Di Vaios importance to the Impact was underlined when he returned last Saturday. Only four minutes after Wenger was sent off, the Italian put a clinical finish on a feed from Justin Mapp to tie the game in the 80th minute give Montreal its first point of the season. There has been concern that the club was too dependant on their 37-year-old striker, so McInerney will give them another option. He and Di Vaio are similar players -- opportunistic, smaller forwards who let their teammates know about it when they dont get the ball. And Di Vaio is expected to retire at the end of the season. "Its important that you have not only one striker that is able to score goals," said De Santis. "We dont depend just on Marco, but hes scored so many goals and taken a lot of the load. "We get a quality player in Jack who has proven he can score goals at a young age. He gives us more firepower up front." It was the Impacts biggest trade since they sent former all-star goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts to Portland for Troy Perkins on Aug. 7, 2012. The move came as the Impact try to get back on course after a weak start. Four of their next five games are at home. Klopas former club, the Chicago Fire, visits Olympic Stadium next week, and the Impacts first game on the grass pitch at Saputo Stadium is April 26 against the Union, followed by a May 10 meeting with Kansas City. "Its an opportunity to gain some ground," said Klopas. The Red Bulls are hurting, with forward Tim Cahill (hamstring) and right back Richard Eckersley (ankle) going down in a 1-1 home draw with Chivas USA last week. Also, it was unknown if star forward Thierry Henry or centre back Jameson Olave will play because both often sit out games on artificial turf. It is expected that Impact captain Patrice Bernier and fullback Jeb Brovsky, both regaining fitness after injuries, will start from the bench for a second week in a row. Former Red Bulls left back Heath Pearce will likely get a second straight start. Jan-Pascal Reckert Jersey . -- Gary Kubiak was bored and in need of a job, if for no other reason to give his wife some breathing room at home.Erik Durm Jersey . The Grizzlies were missing a bevy of players in the first meeting, and the Raptors were performing at a much higher level at that time compared to how they enter the rematch tonight in Memphis.SAN JOSE, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver has been arrested on suspicion of felony hit and run and reckless driving after he drove a car into a bicyclist and fled, police said. Culliver was driving a white Ford Mustang just before 10:30 a.m. Friday when he hit the cyclist Friday morning near downtown San Jose, city police spokesman Albert Morales said. The bicyclist wasnt seriously hurt, he said. A witness followed the Culliver, 25, who also drove into the car of the witness, Morales said, and that vehicle blocked the suspects car until police arrived and arrested Culliver. After searching the suspects car, the authorities found illegal brass knuckles and booked him into Santa Clara County Jail for felony hit and run, felony reckless driving with injury, felony possession of brass knuckles, misdemeanour hit and run and misdemeanour driving on a suspended license. Morales said he didnt know the name of Cullivers attorney. "The 49ers organization is aware of the recent matter involving Chris Culliver," San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said. "We will remain in contact with Chris and the local authorities as we continue to gather the facts regarding this situation. As this is an ongoing legal matter, we will reserve further comment at this time." In 2013, Culliver caused controversy by expressing anti-gay sentimeents in the lead-up to the Super Bowl. Julian Weigl Jersey. During Super Bowl media day at the Superdome in New Orleans that year, Culliver responded to questions from comedian Artie Lange by saying he wouldnt welcome a gay player in the locker room. He also said the 49ers didnt have any homosexual players and, if they did, those players should leave. He later apologized, facing a large group of Super Bowl media members for nearly an hour. Culliver underwent sensitivity training as well and began doing outreach work with The Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis and suicide intervention to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth. "I truly appreciate the staff at the Trevor Project for allowing me to grow and educating me on the issues affecting the LGBTQ community," Culliver later said in a statement to The Associated Press. "I have learned so much and made some really great friends. I will continue my commitment to the organization and to their youths and stand firm with hope that one day that all individuals regardless of sex, race, or creed will be treated with dignity and respect from all." Culliver, a third-round draft pick in 2011 out of South Carolina, made 47 tackles with two interceptions and a forced fumble during the 2012 season while starting six games for the Niners. They lost in the Super Bowl that season to Baltimore. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jersey ' ' '

age won by Joaquim R

OVIEDO, Spain -- American veteran Christopher Horner took the overall lead of the Spanish Vuelta in a mountainous 19th stage won by Joaquim Rodriguez on Friday. Bruno Zuculini Jersey . Entering the day in second place behind overnight leader Vincenzo Nibali, the 41-year-old Horner pulled away from the Giro dItalia champion over the final meters of the uphill ascent to turn a three-second deficit into a three-second lead with just two days to go. With Alejandro Valverde trailing by 1:06 in third, the grand tour appears to have become a two-rider race. Despite his age, Horner has finished ahead of Nibali on the last two mountain stages, powering over the finish line before the Italian slowly pedaled across. "At this moment the legs are fantastico," said Horner, who rides for RadioShack-Leopard. "I really like steep climbs. They have been good to me. So if my legs are good tomorrow, then I should have the jersey in Madrid." Rodriguez used an explosive burst of speed to win the stage that had followed the northern coast before turning inland for a finish at the picturesque Alto Naranco summit overlooking the rolling green hills near Oviedo. The Catalan rider for Katusha got his first stage victory of this edition with a winning time of 4 hours, 16 minutes, 13 seconds. Diego Ulissi of Italy and Spaniards Daniel Moreno and Samuel Sanchez were next at 11 second behind. Horner and Valverde finished 14 seconds behind. "I told my team to go for it," Rodriguez said. "I told them that tomorrow would be too tough because Chris has shown he is so strong. So today was the last chance." Rodriguez is 1:57 off Horners pace in fourth, followed by Nicolas Roche at 3:49 back. The penultimate stage is a 142-kilometre (88-mile) course that takes riders over three major summits and ends with of a special-category climb to the Alto de lAngliru peak before the traditional finish in Madrid on Sunday. Yaya Toure Manchester City Jersey . Damian Lillard added 21 points and 11 assists and hit a pair of clinching free throws with 2.1 seconds left for Portland, which beat Oklahoma City for the second time in December. Portland (25-7) snapped a two-game losing streak but still trails Oklahoma City (25-6) by a half-game in the Northwest Division standings. Fernando Jersey .

o apologize to the

PEORIA, Ariz. Andres Iniesta Jersey . - Jesus Montero was visibly nervous Wednesday as he apologized to his Seattle Mariners teammates and their fans. The catcher-turned-first baseman was joining the team at spring training for the first time since receiving a 50-game suspension after being connected to baseballs Biogenesis performance-enhancing drug investigation. "I want to apologize to the whole organization and all my teammates for what I did last year," Montero said, his voice tinged with emotion. "I know I made a bad mistake last year and I dont know what I was thinking. But Im here right now this year to be better and to help the team to win." Montero is coming off a rough 2013. The catcher was a prized acquisition via trade with the New York Yankees in 2012 but struggled last year with his hitting and defence and was sent down to Triple-A Tacoma, where he was moved to first base. Then came a torn meniscus that required season-ending knee surgery and the suspension. "This was the first time that happened to me. I had six good years in the minor leagues and one good year in the big leagues," Montero said. "Then this happened and it was hard for me and my family. But thank God its in the past already and Im here to move forward and here to be better every day." Montero, 24, is on the Mariners 40-man roster but is not guaranteed a spot on the major-league roster going into this season. He said his knee feels much better, but hell have work to do to make the big-league club, or potentially start the year in the minors. Before his statement, several teammates approached Montero in the clubhouse to greet him and welcome him back. "I have to prove to myself, first of all, that I want to be in the big leagues," he said, pledging to continue to learn to play first base and play wherever the organization wants him. "My teammates, theyre really important to me. I want them to be comfortable with me. I dont want them to be mad or be upset. I want everybody to know Im a good person."

over the nex

BOSTON -- The Boston Bruins signed defenceman Dennis Seidenberg to a contract extension on Thursday, rewarding the defencemen that twice helped them reach the Stanley Cup finals with $16 million over the next four years. Leroy Sane Germany Jersey . The team announced the deal between periods of its opening night game against the Tampa Bay Lightning. "Hes been one of our core guys since we got him," general manager Peter Chiarelli told reporters. "D like Dennis are hard to find. The way that he plays, its hard to find." The deal, which has an average cap value of $4 million, would keep Seidenberg in Boston through the 2017-18 season. He said it gives him a no-trade clause for the first 30 months, with a limited no-trade clause over the next 30 months. Chiarelli said this week that signing Seidenberg, who could have become a free agent at the end of the season, was the organizations top priority. "I wanted to be here. They wanted me here. Both sides gave a little bit," Seidenberg said after the Bruins opened with a 3-1 victory over the Lightning. "Im really happy to be here for five years." In 10 NHL seasons, plus one game, Seidenberg has 34 goals and 154 assists. As Zdeno Charas partner on the Bruins No. 1 defensive pairing, Seidenberg helped Boston win the Stanley Cup in 2011. Seidenberg was sixth in the NHL in blocked shots and was third among defencemen with a plus-18 last season, when the Bruins returned to the finals, losing to the Chicago Blackhawks in six games. Antonio Rudiger Jersey Bastian Schweinsteiger Germany Jersey .com) - The Montreal Canadiens aim to extend their impressive start on the road this season as they visit the Minnesota Wild for Friday nights encounter.Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro has withdrawn from the upcoming Australian Open because of a wrist injury.

in a light heavy

Anthony "Rumble" Johnson is safe, for now. Nike Air Max 90 Hombre Baratas . One day after Dana White told reporters if Johnson didnt make weight he would "never be back in the UFC", Johnson made weight at 205 pounds. After a six-fight hiatus from the UFC, Johnson will make his return in a light heavyweight bout against Phil Davis on Saturday at UFC 172 in Baltimore. "It feels great," Johnson told UFC Tonights Ariel Helwani after the weigh-ins. "Im blessed to be here and have a great opportunity to be here and fight Phil." This is just another chapter, albeit a positive one, in the long saga of Johnsons weight issues. He was cut from the UFC roster in 2012 after a submission loss to Vitor Belfort at UFC 142. He failed to make weight for that fight and two previous bouts. "Three strikes and youre out. This is his third time that he hasnt made weight," White told FUEL TV back in 2012 after Johnsons middleweight loss to Belfort. "Hes the co-main event in a huge fight down here in Brazil and this one was a bad one. Rumble Johnson did the damage to himself. To be that unprofessional and not come in on weight, and to be that far off when you used to fight at 170, now you went to 185 pounds so you wouldnt have trouble making weight, and this is your worst weight cut ever? Thats at a detriment to himself." Asked if he thought he would ever return to the UFC, Johnson said "it never crossed my mind." "I was just going with the flow ... Not thinking too far ahead." Johnson has come in heavy twice at welterweight (170 pounds) and twice at middleweight (180 pounds) over the course of his 20-fight career. This time around, Johnson has finally done himself a favour. Comprar Nike Free Run 2 .com) - Henrik Zetterberg picked up his first hat trick in almost two years as the Detroit Red Wings erased an early 3-0 deficit and topped the luckless Buffalo Sabres, 6-4, at Joe Louis Arena. Nike Free Flyknit Chukka Baratas . -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to terms with safety Brock Vereen and QB David Fales on four-year contracts.SINGAPORE -- Panuphol Pittayarat of Thailand made nine birdies in a blemish-free round of 9-under 63 to take the first-round lead at The Championship at Laguna National on Thursday. Panuphol, ranked just 451st in the world, was a stroke ahead of a group of four golfers in second -- Scott Jamieson, David Lipsky, Kim Byung-jun and local favourite Quincy Quek. The tournament, a co-sanctioned European and Asian tour event formerly called the Ballantines Championship, was moved from South Korea to Singapore just three weeks ago after it lost its title sponsor and the promoter failed to reach an agreement with a suitable golf venue. Defending champion Brett Rumford of Australia was in joint-64th place after a 70, level with Frances Alexander Levy, who won his maiden European Tour title Sunday at the China Open. The 21-year-old Panuphol earned his best European Tour result late last year when he finished tied for 18th at the Hong Kong Open. But hes missed his last three cuts on the Asian Tour. "I didnt see it coming but it did come," he said of his 63 on Thursday. "Im feeling good about my game right now. I wwas just trying to hit straight out there. Nike Roshe Run Mujer Baratas. I managed to hole a lot of putts and a lot of them were unexpected." Jamieson, who won his first European Tour title last year at the Nelson Mandela Championship in South Africa, also had nine birdies in his round, including a difficult chip shot from the bunker on the par-3 No. 17, his eighth hole. He had one bogey on the par-4 16th. "Ive been hitting the ball well the last couple of weeks, so it was nice to get a round where it all came together," he said. "There was just the one mistake with the three-putt on 16, but it was pretty far away and pace putting is always difficult in Asia with the grain. Its not what someone from Scotland is used to." Panuphols countryman, Arnond Vongvanij, was in a share of the lead at 9 under until taking a double bogey on No. 8, his 17th hole, to fall back to a share of sixth place on 65. Spains Rafa Cabrera-Bello, who has three top-10 finishes this year, was another shot back in a group at 6 under. Laguna National hosted the Singapore Masters from 2002-07 and the Singapore Open from 2009-12. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Auston Matthews Jersey ' ' '

the No. 3 Cardinals to a 71-57 victory over Fairfield on S

UNCASVILLE, Conn. Phil McConkey Giants Jersey . -- Louisvilles 21st straight win wasnt what Rick Pitino would have liked it to be. Chris Jones scored 15 points and Montrezl Harrell added 14 points and 12 rebounds to lead the No. 3 Cardinals to a 71-57 victory over Fairfield on Saturday in the Hall of Fame Tipoff Tournament. But the Cardinals (5-0) committed 26 fouls and turned the ball over 14 times against the Stags (1-4). "Tonight we were just flat in every phase of the game," Pitino said. "We were flat offensively with only nine assists. Our two point guards turned it over eight times, which they havent been doing. We didnt do the little things necessary to exploit the weaknesses of Fairfield. We were late to the glass a lot. A lot of things were disturbing but well go ahead." Maurice Barrow paced Fairfield (1-4) with 14 points and Marcus Gilbert chipped in with 11. Louisville, which has three national titles, will be looking for its 27th title in a regular-season tournament when it faces No. 24 North Carolina in Sundays championship game. The Tar Heels beat Richmond, 82-72 in Saturdays first semifinal. "This wasnt a close game," Pitino said. "Youre going to see close (Sunday). Thats if we dont get blown out. If we play this way tomorrow, it wont even be a game. I think their size is going to give us a little trouble. They do a lot of good things defensively and theyre long. They offensive rebound very well." The Stags stayed with the Cardinals for much of the first half and led 11-9 midway through it. But Louisville went on a 28-12 run to close the half and led by as many as 21 after the break. Louisville, which was playing its first game away from home this season, got a balanced scoring effort. Wayne Blackshear had 11 points and Russ Smith added 10 points and seven rebounds. Luke Hancock, who has been recovering from a strained left Achilles, had nine points in 17 minutes, and was 7 of 7 from the foul line. This was the Cardinals first game away from home this season, and Hancock said the energy just wasnt there. "Weve had every game in front of big crowds at the Yum! Center," he said. "They had a lot more fans. We just didnt come out with enough energy. Weve got to come next time right from the start, especially against Carolina." The teams combined for 53 fouls in what was far from a crisp contest. Louisville, which came in averaging just six turnovers, the best in the nation, had eight before halftime. Fairfield used a full-court press to rattle the Cardinals vaunted guards. Jones and Smith each gave the ball away four times But Pitinos press was also effective, forcing Fairfield into 19 turnovers. Neither team shot well. Louisville, which came in making almost 50 per cent of its attempts from the field, hit just 38 per cent and the Cardinals were just 2 of 14 from 3-point range. Fairfield fared just as poorly, hitting on just 34 per cent, while going 5 of 15 from behind the arc. The Stags led 9-4 early. A jumper by Harrell tied the game at 11 and started the run that put the Cardinals in control. Hancocks layup off a Fairfield miss gave Louisville a 37-23 halftime lead. Another shot by Harrell gave Louisville its first 20-point lead at 49-28, with 12 minutes left. Fairfield cut the deficit back to 51-36, but could not get closer than 14. It was 59-40 when Harrell picked up his fourth foul and 62-43 when Smith picked up his fourth. But by then, the game had been decided. "Right now Im just locked in on getting my rebounds up," Harrell said. "At halftime I only had two rebounds and I felt, with my mindset, Im a double digit rebounder every night. I went back out after halftime and said thats got to be changed." Jones took charge down the stretch. He had all but two of his points in the second half. Fairfield has lost four in a row. The Stags were picked to finish sixth in the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference preseason coaches poll. "We grew up a bit today, and we got some confidence," said Fairfield coach Sydney Johnson. "For Fairfield University, to be on this national stage, and let people know that weve got some good young kids in our program, its a thrill." This was the first meeting between the two programs. Louisville is now 156-37 in non-conference games under Pitino. Fairfield fell to 0-50 all-time against ranked opponents, dating back to the 1949-50 season. Dwayne Harris Giants Jersey .C. -- The Hornets have placed the teams future personnel decisions in the hands of Rich Cho after Rod Higgins has stepped down as the teams president of basketball operations on Friday. Chris Snee Giants Jersey .com) - Kyle Okposo notched his first career hat trick, including the game-winner in the third period, and totaled four goals as the New York Islanders rallied for a 6-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins.MONTREAL -- Its not often the Canadiens get a big offensive boost from their fourth line. But on Saturday Brandon Prust, Travis Moen and Ryan White were the difference in Montreals 3-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. "Its good for us to chip in," said Prust, whose third goal of the year put the Canadiens in front 1-0 early in the second period. "Those top guys have been carrying a heavy load lately, and have been doing a great job. We want to contribute when we can. We were happy to do it tonight." Prior to the game, Prust, Moen and White had a combined nine points on the season. On Saturday, they registered five of the teams nine points, and finished with eight hits, two blocked shots and no giveaways. "We know what were going to do out there the three of us," said Prust. "Were going to keep it simple, chip in pucks and support each other. Were good at protecting pucks. Thats the key to our success." After an uneventful first period in which neither team generated much offence, Canadiens coach Michel Therrien rewarded the fourth line by starting them in the second period. "There was a message. We liked their intensity in the first period," said Therrien. "I dont think we had the right attitude to start the game. Those guys were intense." Their line responded instantly, scoring 19 seconds into the period. Prust started the play when he stole the puck from former Canadien Matt DAgostini at the Buffalo blue-line before dishing it off to Moen. Moen quickly passed it to White, who completed the tic-tac-toe by feeding Prust in the slot. After Tyler Ennis evened the score later in the period Moen drew two Sabres players towards him, leaving Prust all alone behind the net. Moen slid the puck to Prust, who waited patiently for Tomas Plekanec to walk into the slot. Plekanecs shot off the post and in at 17:44 put the Canadiens ahead for good. "We get our success from putting pucks on net, playing that gritty type of game, getting to the net," said Moen. "Its always nice to pitch in offensively, get some points, and feel good about yourself. Tonight was that night." Prust finished the game with a goal and an assist, Moen had two assists and White finished with one assist. "They were practically our best trio," said Therrien. "They played a huge part in our teams victory. They created some scoring chances with their intensity. They spent a lot of time in the offensive zone. They certainly were true leaders tonight those three guys." Therrien also complimented Whites effortt, suggesting he played his best game of the year. Eli Apple Giants Jersey. White has been in and out of the lineup for the Canadiens recently, sitting out six games as a healthy scratch since the start of the season. "The biggest battle for me right now is for me to keep my confidence, not second guess myself," said White. "Im chomping at the bit every time I can get in there. "I felt good. My line played well, made it easy for me. I just felt like I was really into the game, ready to go every time I got a chance to go out there." The only goal the fourth line wasnt involved in was Alex Galchenyuks game-winner, which he scored at 18:07 of the second period, only 23 seconds after Plekanecs. The Sabres responded with pressure in the third, and rookie forward Zemgus Girgensons reduced the deficit at 4:04 after a great individual effort saw him control a bouncing puck, go around Canadiens defender P.K. Subban, and beat Carey Price by poking the puck into the net. The goal was a silver lining for coach Ted Nolans Sabres, which have now lost six straight road games and are last in the NHL with 14 points and a 6-22-2 record. "He played well," said Nolan of 19-year-old Girgensons. "Ive known the kid now for three years and have watched him play, he does this all the time. Its one of those things that comes with maturity, hell get better and better. "Those are the building blocks with which were going to turn this organization around. Its through people like that, with some strong character and will to get better." With the win, Montreal extended its win streak to five games and retained top spot in the Atlantic division. The Canadiens have only lost once in regulation time in the last 14 games and have not allowed more than three goals in any game during that time. "Before playing this stretch, I wont lie to you, it scared us," said Therrien. "We should be very satisfied." Jhonas Enroth, who got the start in net in place Ryan Miller, made 16 saves for the Sabres. Price stopped 23 shots for Montreal (19-9-3). He is second in the league with a .938 save percentage and hasnt allowed more than two goals in his last nine starts. Notes: Rene Bourque, who missed the last two games with an upper body injury, was again left out of Montreals lineup. George Parros and Francis Bouillon were healthy scratches. a Montreal beat the Sabres 3-1 less than two weeks ago in Buffalo. The teams will meet twice more this season a The Canadiens take on the Los Angeles Kings at the Bell Centre on Tuesday. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys AuthenticWholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Auston Matthews Jersey ' ' '

ues. Harvin returned to practice last Wednesday after passing the NFLs concussion protocol. He suffe

NEWARK, N. Trent Cole Colts Jersey .J. - Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin says he is "absolutely playing" in the Super Bowl on Sunday after a season filled with "frustrating" health issues. Harvin returned to practice last Wednesday after passing the NFLs concussion protocol. He suffered a concussion in Seattles NFC divisional playoff game against New Orleans. Harvin says Tuesday at media day that he feels "really good" and has "no restrictions" as the Seahawks prepare to face the Denver Broncos. He missed the first 10 games of the season after needing hip surgery, and played sparingly when he returned because of complications. Harvin came back for the playoffs, but hit his head on the turf in Seattles win over New Orleans. He says being able to play in the Super Bowl "means everything" to him. Phillip Dorsett Colts Jersey . Chandler Stephenson added a pair of goals and Connor Gay chipped in with a single for Regina (21-17-5), which stayed in control with the first six goals of the game. Erik Walden Colts Jersey . It turns out that run was the beginning of whats been a larger turnaround for the Sabres, who head to Winnipeg tonight with hopes of posting their longest winning streak in three seasons.DUNEDIN, Florida - Blue Jays players assembled Monday afternoon for their annual spring meeting with the Players Association, the first gathering chaired by new executive director Tony Clark. Just as the meeting was beginning, Major League Baseball unveiled Rule 7.13, an experimental rule for the 2014 season aimed at eliminating what the league calls “egregious” runner/catcher collisions at home plate. See a full explanation of the rule here: http://tinyurl.com/l4zaqo5 Here is a link to a play at the plate last season, involving Phillies base runner Chase Utley and former Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro, now with the Blue Jays. Watch the clip, keeping in mind the new rule didnt exist, and guess based on the new rule whether Utley would be safe or out. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0Qe310Bn4g Assembled media, waiting for Clark to emerge from his seminar with the Jays, couldnt agree on the call. Some saw fault with Utley for initiating contact with Navarro. Others believed Utley would be called safe because Navarro blocked the pathway of the runner to the plate prior to receiving the baseball. If you think Utley is safe, based on the new rule, Clark agrees with you. “My guess is, according to the rule, (Navarro) cant be sitting on the plate without the ball,” said Clark. “Its one thing to catch it and then move and block the baseline. Its another thing to block the baseline and not having the ball.” Blue Jays catchers hadnt seen the new rule as of Mondays availability and had plenty of questions, including the wisdom of asking an umpire to make a split-second determination about more than whether a runner is safe or out. “I think its tough to make that out/safe call at home and theyre always trying to get good positioning,” said Erik Kratz. “Now, is their positioning going to have to change? Are they going to have to talk about that? Are they going to have to look at the runner as hes running, ‘I saw the runners eyes, he was looking at the catcher. You did? What about the ball? What about the catchers eyes? Did he have his fist clenched?” “Im going to do you one better,” said Clark. “During a play on the field you may also have a rotation component here where youve got the home plate umpire running to third and the first base umpire running to home. Its a tough enough play as it is as hes running to try and call a close play but now youre also talking about trying to determine intent and where guys are positioned. Its difficult.” Many other nuances were discussed, which is why, according to Clark, the rule has been made public and is being explained to players only two days before Grapefruit League play is scheduled to begin. A Major League Baseball representative and an umpire will be visiting all 30 teams during spring training to further explain the rule. Manager John Gibbons has met with MLB Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Joe Torre and his right-hand man, Tony La Russa. The intent of the rule is to make close plays at the plate safer for both the catcher and the runner. A catcher in his playing days, Gibbons is skeptical. “I dont know about that,” said Gibbons. “I think when you start trying to mess with the game too much, I mean, youre going to run into problems. Its a big part of the game. The game on the line, thats the winning run or something, guys are trying to stop that run. Instinct tells them to do one thing. But if thats the rule then we live with that. Nothing we can do about that.” Clark of Free Agency Ervin Santana and Stephen Drew are two high-profile free agents whove yet to find work, in large part because there is draft pick compensation tied to their next contracts. Mike Adams Colts Jersey. “As a union its our responsibility to make sure that player rights are defended, protected and advanced,” said Clark. When asked over the course of the winter about the Blue Jays interest in select free agents, general manager Alex Anthopoulos repeatedly opined that market prices were too high and that the club was willing to wait for player demands to come down. Clark, speaking in general terms, not specifically about Anthopoulos or the Blue Jays, says the union will review the offseasons free agency activity. “If the free agent market as a whole is being manipulated on some level and we have an opportunity to reflect on this offseason, comments that were made, where those comments came from and how they may have affected the free agent market then it is a conversation were going to have going forward to make sure the integrity of the Collective Bargaining Agreement is upheld and that we dont find ourselves in a place where certain information is lending itself to certain understandings and appreciations publicly with respect to free agents,” said Clark. Clark on A-Rod Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez wont play in 2014, suspended for his role in the Biogenesis performance enhancing drug scandal. Rodriguez has since dropped a lawsuit which named, among others, the Major League Baseball Players Association. Clark says if A-Rod is playing in 2015, hell be welcomed back into the union he briefly considered taking to court. “Over the course of 140 years there have been, I believe, a little less than 20-thousand players who have ever worn a major league uniform for one day,” said Clark. “If you have worn a major league uniform for one day then you are part of that fraternity. There are guys that make decisions that guys dont appreciate, that guys dont like, but after Alex serves his suspension he will come back as a member of that fraternity and we expect to see him in 2015.” Clark on an openly gay player Jason Collins is back in the NBA, making history on Sunday night as the first openly gay athlete in the leagues history. Michael Sam appears poised to become the first openly gay player in the NFL. Is baseball ready for such a scenario? “I dont see it being an issue,” said Clark. “Our locker rooms are more diverse than most and as youve heard with a lot of the leagues, whether its the NFL or any other place, inevitably its going to come down to can you help us win ballgames?” Pitching Schedule Manager John Gibbons has drawn up his pitching schedule for the first five Grapefruit League games. Here it is: Wednesday at Phillies: J.A. Happ (2 innings,) Todd Redmond (2,) Kyle Drabek (1-2,) Chad Jenkins (1,) Neil Wagner (1,) Mickey Storey (1.) Thursday vs. Phillies: R.A. Dickey (2,) Esmil Rogers (1,) Dustin McGowan (1,) Brett Cecil (1,) Aaron Loup (1,) Jeremy Jeffress (1,) Rob Rasmussen (1,) Marcus Walden (1.) Friday vs. Pirates: Mark Buehrle (1-2,) Brandon Morrow (1-2,) Steve Delabar (1,) Sergio Santos (1,) Liam Hendriks (1,) Sean Nolin (1,) Aaron Sanchez (1,) Juan Perez (1.) Saturday at Orioles: Drew Hutchison (2,) Ricky Romero (1-2,) Marcus Stroman (2,) Tomo Ohka (1-2,) Deck McGuire (1-2,) Mickey Storey (1.) Sunday vs. Yankees: Esmil Rogers (2,) Todd Redmond (1-2,) Brett Cecil (1,) Aaron Loup (1,) Jeremy Jeffress (1,) Chad Jenkins (1,) Neil Wagner (1,) Casey Janssen (1.)
