ABBOTSFORD, B. Anthony Rizzo Cubs Jersey .C. -- The Texas Stars snapped a three-game winless streak the best way they know how -- by scoring a bushel of goals in quick succession. The Stars are the highest scoring team in the American Hockey League and showed it by thumping the Abbotsford Heat 7-2 on Sunday. Colton Sceviour scored his first of the night just 53 seconds into the game, but it was his second that capped a six-goal second period for the Stars. "We were able to get a goal early and we buried our chances," said Sceviour. "In yesterdays game (a 3-2 Abbotsford shootout victory), (Heat goalie Olivier) Roy made some big saves and we werent able to capitalize. Today we were able to capitalize and that was the big difference." Lopsided victories are nothing new between these two clubs. Abbotsfords largest margin of defeat this season was a 9-3 loss in Texas Oct. 20, which it followed with a 7-3 win. The Stars also toppled the Heat 5-0 in January. "Its kind of strange," said Sceviour. "The second game they played us in Texas they beat us pretty handily. Its weird how teams that are so tight in the standings that when they play one team seems to control the other a little bit. But fortunately its been us more times than not." Scott Glennie had a pair of goals, while Brett Ritchie, Jyrki Jokipakka, and Mike Hedden also scored for Texas (29-15-6), which moves the club to within two points of the Heat for first in the Western Conference. "Its good for us, but we know theyre a good team," said Glennie. "The games, it seems, have been one-sided this year, one way or another. Its been fun playing them and well have a tough matchup in the future." The Stars boast the top-two goal scorers in the AHL in Sceviour and points leader Travis Morin. "(Sceviour) is such a big part of the team," said Glennie. "We need those guys to be scoring for us to be successful, and they bring it every single night. But obviously when we get the secondary scoring, like tonight, its huge for us as well. When youre playing a team like Abbotsford you need that." Cristopher Nilstorp made 33 saves for the win. "(Nilstorp) was fantastic," added Glennie. "They had a lot of good opportunities to get back in the game and he was there to stop them every single time and that was great." Max Reinhart and Shane OBrien replied for Abbotsford (31-15-4), which had a five-game winning streak snapped. Olivier Roy allowed four goals on 24 shots before being replaced by Joni Ortio, who was reassigned to the Heat by the Calgary Flames for the Olympic break. Ortio let in the first shot he faced and three of the first six shots that went his way. "The second period was a big outburst and that was kind of a shock for both teams," said Glennie. The Stars opened the scoring when Dustin Jeffreys pass deflected in off Sceviours skate, and after review the goal stood. The Heat tied the game at 11:19. Corban Knight jammed at the puck down low, and with the puck sitting on the goal line Reinhart swooped around the net to tuck it in for his 12th of the season. OBrien gave the Heat their only lead of the game at 2:14 of the second. After leading a shorthanded rush he dropped the puck to Markus Granlund and went to the net. Granlund had two assists on the night. Ritchie tied the game a little more than a minute later on a power play. His wrist shot from the left face-off dot found its way through a pair of bodies into the top right corner for his 11th of the season, beginning the offensive onslaught. "We knew we let it snowball on us, and give them credit - they smelled some blood and they took advantage," said OBrien. Glennie then scored two goals in a three-minute span. First he one-timed a feed from Chris Mueller while shorthanded. Then he was the beneficiary of a lucky bounce, with the puck going off a defencemans backside and in. Ortio came in to play goal, but allowed Jokipakka to score on the first shot he faced. "Goals four and five were the absolute backbreakers for me and our team," said Heat head coach Troy Ward. "The ones that were on the power play after, thats a frenzy of wolves feeding. They just smelled blood, and they went for it and they got it." Hedden and Sceviour then scored on successive power plays for their 18th and 29th goals respectively to round out the scoring. Kosuke Fukudome Cubs Jersey .

Jeff Samardzija Jersey . Abreu hit his 20th homer and AdamDunn added a three-run shot as Chicago beat San Francisco 7-6 on Wednesday, handing the Giants their fifth straight loss.PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas -- Ryan Arcidiacono had not made a shot all night. So naturally, he was Jay Wrights choice on the play that wound up deciding Villanovas fate. And it was the right choice. Arcidiaconos 3-pointer with 10.1 seconds left put Villanova on top for good, and the Wildcats upset No. 2 Kansas 63-59 in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis on Friday night. "We had a choice who we were going to run that for," said Wright, the Villanova coach whos now 4-1 in last five games against teams ranked in the top five. "And we picked Ryan. I dont think theres a guy on our team who would doubt that. ... Everybody just knows he lives for that. When we practice end of the game situations in practice, he always makes the shot." Sure enough, he delivered. Arcidiacono had missed all five of his previous shots, but made the one that counted -- the only field goal for the Wildcats in the final 7 minutes. "I thought I was wide open, so I just pulled the trigger," Arcidiacono said. Arcidiacono got it off in plenty of time, even as Kansas Perry Ellis -- listed as 5 inches taller -- charged his way. "Almost," Ellis said. Darrun Hilliard and Dylan Ennis each scored 14 for Villanova (6-0), which meets Iowa in Saturday nights championship game. JayVaughn Pinkston scored 13 and James Bell added 10 for the Wildcats. Frank Mason scored 12 for Kansas (5-1). His three-point play with 34.2 seconds left gave Kansas its first lead in more than 25 minutes, but the Jayhawks couldnt hold on in the final moments. "It was not a pretty game," Kansas coach Bill Self said. "Certainly, I hate that it came down to one possession like that." Ellis scored 11, while Canadian Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid added 10 each for Kansas, which plays Texas-El Paso in the third-place game Saturday. Villanova led 57-46 with just over seven minutes left, then got outscored 13-1 to lose the lead -- and then found a way at the end to cap a wild night where one team would go on a run, then the other would follow. It held true to the end, with the Wildcats having the last run. Pinkstons layup made it 36-26 early in the second half, before Kansas ran off eight unanswered points in a flash -- four of them by Ellis -- to get within two. Villanova was undeterred. The Wildcats answered with a 12-2 run, capped by Ennis 3-pointer with 12:44 remaining too give Villanova what was its biggest lead, 48-36. Darwin Barney Authentic Jersey. The margin was still 11 with 7:19 left, but the Jayhawks just kept coming. And after Villanova went more than 4 minutes without scoring, Kansas was back within 57-54 with plenty of time left. Masons layin off a lob cut Villanovas lead to one, and the converted ballroom serving as an arena this weekend was simply rocking. Kansas fans had filled the building, and they werent quiet. That is, until Arcidiacono rendered them silent and gave Villanova a huge early win. "He seemed like a tough kid to me," Self said. "Usually, in a game like this, the tough guy is the one making plays. It didnt surprise me at all that hes the one who took the shot." For the first 6 1/2 minutes, Villanova made nothing. Literally, outside of a couple free throws, nothing. It was 11-2 Kansas out of the gate, and Villanova was looking wholly overmatched in the early going. The Wildcats missed their first seven shots, not getting anything from the field to drop until Hilliard -- who had scored 12 by intermission, seven more than anyone from Kansas to that point -- hit a 3-pointer with 13:14 remaining. Just like that, everything changed. Villanova scored 27 of the next 35 points over a stunning 12 1/2-minute stretch, turning that 11-2 deficit into a 29-19 lead, the last point coming when Arcidiacono made one of two free throws awarded after Self was protesting a bit too much with one of the referees during a time-out. The shot by Arcidiacono capped a 12-0 burst by the Wildcats. It was his only point until the 3-pointer in the final moments. Kansas went into the locker room down only 29-22. It could have been so much worse -- after holding Villanova without a field goal for nearly seven minutes to start the game, the Jayhawks went the last eight minutes of the half without one of their own, going 0 for 7 from the floor with five turnovers during that dismal stretch. Combined, the teams were 14 for 53 in the opening 20 minutes. Villanova shot 29 per cent, Kansas 24 per cent, but the Wildcats held a 28-15 rebounding edge in the half. "Were a long ways to go," Self said. "I love our talent, I love our players and all that stuff. But the thing is, theres a difference between trying hard and actually competing. And we have to learn how to compete. And its not going to happen overnight." wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

DerekFisher has agreed to become the next coach of the New York Knicks and will be introduced at a news conference Tuesday morning, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. jerseys from china . The Knicks did not confirm the hiring, other than saying they were planning a "major announcement." The person who confirmed the deal to AP spoke on condition of anonymity because neither side authorized the public disclosure of any information related to the deal. The 39-year-old Fisher just completed his 18th season, finishing his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played under Knicks President Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers, and helped that franchise win five NBA titles. Fisher would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer, though it was widely known that this season would be his last as a player. And once the Knicks failed to close a deal with SteveKerr -- who wound up accepting an offer from Golden State -- Fisher was believed to be the next target on Jacksons list. Jackson was fined $25,000 for the league last week for a tampering violation involving Fisher. He was still under contract with the Thunder when Jackson told New York reporters that Fisher was "on my list of guys that could be very good candidates" to replace Mike Woodson on the Knicks sideline. Fisher surely could still play. He has just suspected for a while that his time has come to do something else. "Coaching allows for you to positively impact other peoples lives," Fisher told reporters during his exit interview after Oklahoma Citys season ended. "To help a group of people find success, whether they have or havent before, youre all working together for a common goal." Fishers hiring means that next season, both teams in New York will have former point guards barely removed from playing days at the helms. It worked for the Brooklyn Nets, who made the Eastern Conference semifinals this season with first-year coach JasonKidd, and now the Knicks will hope that Fisher can have the same success. His hiring is the first significant step in whats expected to be a broad makeover of the team by Jackson, who was hired late in the regular season to turn around the fortunes of a franchise that has won just one playoff series in the past 14 years. Over that 14-year span, the Knicks have won a mere 10 playoff games. Fisher played in 134 playoff wins during that stretch. wholesale nfl jerseys . Left-handed reliever BooneLogan agreed to a $16.5 million, three-year contract on Friday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press. cheap nfl jerseys . - NicklasBackstrom scored the winning goal in the shootout to lead the Washington Capitals to their first win in San Jose in more than 20 years, 3-2 over the Sharks on Saturday night.NEW YORK -- GradySizemores big hit against an old friend ensured JonLester finally had something to show for an impressive effort. Sizemore hit a three-run homer in the sixth inning off CCSabathia and the Boston Red Sox gave Lester enough run support for his first win of the year, 4-2 over the New York Yankees on Friday night. "Good to have a rally there in that inning," Sizemore said. "Weve kind of struggled with Jon on the mound. Its nice to pick him up and get some runs for him." It wasnt all positive news for Boston in its first win this season over the rival Yankees. Closer KojiUehara was held out of the game because he had some right shoulder stiffness when throwing during pregame warmups. Manager John Farrell used EdwardMujica in the ninth instead of the 39-year Uehara as a precaution. "We felt it was best to stay away from him," Farrell said. "Itll be a day-to-day thing." JonnyGomes led off the sixth with another long ball off Sabathia, and the four-run inning was more runs than Boston had scored for Lester in his first two starts combined (one). Despite a 2.51 ERA coming in, Lester was at risk of falling to 0-3 for the first time in his big league career. The left-hander was lifted with two outs in the seventh after KellyJohnson singled to pull the Yankees within two runs, his first hit in 15 career at-bats against Lester (1-2). JunichiTazawa relieved with runners at the corners and retired DerekJeter on a flyout. Jeter hit leadoff for the Yankees for first time since breaking his left ankle in the 2012 AL championship series opener. He beat out an infield single in four at-bats. Lester allowed AlfonsoSorianos homer starting the second and six hits overall. He walked two and struck out six in improving to 12-5 in 27 starts against New York. "I dont feel like I threw the ball as well the first two, but sometimes you need games like this to appreciate the ones where you glide through," Lester said. "This was a little bit of a grinder." Tazawa pitched 1 1-3 innings of one-hit relief, and Mujica was perfect in the ninth for his first save with Boston. "Im ready to go whatever the situation," said Mujica, who had 37 saves for St. Louis and mmade the NL All-Star team last year before losing his closers job in September.wholesale jerseys. . Sabathia (1-2) pitched without the controversy that surrounded teammate MichaelPineda in a series-opening 4-1 win Thursday but also without the success. Pineda gave up one run and four hits in six-plus innings but was caught on camera with a brown substance on his hand. Joe Torre, Major League Baseballs executive vice-president for baseball operations, said in a statement Friday that Pineda will not be suspended. Looking as if he was setting aside talk of being an ace on the decline, Sabathia was dominant for five innings. He allowed just DavidRoss third-inning double until Gomes led off the sixth with his first homer of the year, on an 89 mph four-seam fastball. Four batters later, Sizemore crushed an 80 mph slider into right field for a 4-1 lead. The duo were teammates in Cleveland before Sabathia was traded to Milwaukee during the 2008 season. "You go out and compete, even against friends," Sabathia said. "Tonight he got the best of me." Sabathias fastball velocity has declined from 94.1 mph in 2009, his first season in New York, to 89.7 mph this year entering Friday. Last year he gave up 45 of his major league-leading 122 runs on a career-high 28 homers allowed. Hes already yielded five this season. Sabathia allowed four runs and six hits in seven innings, striking out nine and walking two. Hes given up at least four runs in each of his three starts and has a 6.63 ERA. ""I was a little bit better," Sabathia said. "I havent really been able to put a whole game together." NOTES: Former Red Sox JacobyEllsbury and MattThornton were given their World Series rings in a meeting with Boston GM Ben Cherington and Farrell before the game. ... Yankees manager JoeGirardi said 1B MarkTeixeira (right hamstring) should be off the disabled list before May 1 but SS BrendanRyan (back) is doubtful for the beginning of next month. ... Red Sox OF ShaneVictorino took BP and did some light running. Farrell says hell have an idea about a rehab assignment for Victorino after the White Sox series early next week. ...

LONDON -- Former heavyweight champion David Haye announced his retirement on Thursday, fulfilling his promise to quit by the time he reached the age of 31.Billy Williams Jersey . The British fighters last bout was a loss on points in July to Wladimir Klitschko, who added Hayes WBA title to his own WBO and IBF belts. "As the clock struck 12 last night, my professional boxing career came to an end," said Haye, who turned 31 on Thursday. "It has been my intention to retire from the sport of boxing on this particular day ever since I first laced up a pair of gloves as a skinny 10-year old." Haye said he had achieved the goal he set himself when he started out as a boxer -- winning the heavyweight title. "Ultimately I fell short (by losing to Klitschko) but I won world titles in two weights. Im one of the best British boxers ever," he said. Haye started off as a cruiserweight, where he beat Jean-Marc Mormeck in Paris to land the WBC title, before moving up to heavyweight. He won 25 of his 27 fights as a professional. Haye beat Russias Nikolay Valuev in November 2009 to capture the WBA title, successfully defending it against John Ruiz and Audley Harrison before the loss to Klitschko in Hamburg. Haye denied his announcement was a piece of brinksmanship to lure Wladimir into a rematch or to fight the Ukrainians brother Vitali for the WBC title. "Vitali did show an interest in sharing a ring with me in 2012 but since that initial declaration, we have heard the wrong kind of noises from Team Klitschko, which has left me thinking there is little chance of the fight ever coming to fruition," Haye said. Speaking from his gym in south London, Haye said the Klitschkos "see me as just another challenger out there but I know what Im about." Haye said he plans to launch an acting career next year.

Five first-round trades were made Tuesday night as well as another involving an early second-round selection.TORONTO -- Players on the Edmonton Eskimos and Calgary Stampeders will hold a strike vote Saturday. Veterans on teams outside Alberta have already voted and are in a legal strike position but the Eskimos and Stampeders were unable to vote earlier due to provincial labour laws. If they vote in favour of a strike, the earliest they could do so is Wednesday night in accordance with the legislation. The CFL and its players have been without a collective agreement since May 29. The CFL exhibition season is scheduled to begin Monday night with the Toronto Argonauts visiting the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, but with players on both teams in a legal strike position, that game could be threatened. CFL Players Association president Scott Flory didnt return a telephone message Friday while a league spokesman said commissioner Mark Cohon wasnt available for comment. The Eskimos and Stampeders will include their rookies in the vote because Alberta law requires all players to participate. Traditionally, first-year players dont vote because theyre not recognized as certified union members, but the players association is allowing them to do so to counter any potential legal challenge from the league. Some other teams in the league will also hold second votes Saturday to include their rookies. The two sides have been negotiating on a new collective bargaining agreement since February but reached an impasse on Monday when the league rejected the players latest offer. The league and unionn last met face to face May 29. Fergie Jenkins Jersey. . Despite turning down the players offer Monday, the CFL extended the ratification bonus deadline to midnight ET on Friday. If the players accepted the leagues final offer in that timeframe, veterans would receive a $5,000 bonus while rookies would get $1,500. However, a league spokesman said the bonus clause would be taken off the table after the deadline. There has only been one strike since the CFLPA was formed in 1965. Three weeks of training camp were lost in 1974 before a new agreement was reached. No regular-season games were affected. The 2014 regular season is scheduled to kick off June 26. The two sides dont appear to be far apart on financial issues. The CFLPA has requested a $5.2-million salary cap and $4.8-million minimum. The CFL has countered with a $5-million cap. The two sides have agreed on boosting the minimum salary $5,000 to $50,000. After demanding specific revenue-sharing percentages, the CFLPA offer called for a fixed cap for at least two years. After the second, if league revenues increased by more than $18 million -- excluding the Grey Cup -- the two sides would renegotiate the cap or the entire agreement. The CFL offer called for the cap to be renegotiated if its revenues increased by $27 million or more in the third year. Non-monetary issues, such as player safety, practice roster size, eliminating the option year on CFL contracts and practice times, are also sticking points. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn. nfl jerseys china .ca. Kerry,In the first period of Saturdays Montreal-Ottawa game, BrendanGallagher is called for goaltender interference. CraigAnderson is outside the blue paint trying to make the save.When is it legal to make contact with the goalie without a penalty? It seems they can leave the crease, wander around, check a player but touch the goalie and a penalty is called! If his domain is the blue ice then stay in there and if you come out be prepared to bite the bullet!Bill George---I have a short question regarding a rule in international hockey. At this years WJHC, I noticed numerous times that play was whistled down when a player from one team entered the crease of the opposing teams goalie. Yet other times when a goal was scored by a player who had also clearly been in the crease. Why is the play not blown dead then or the goal taken back like the days of old in the NHL? Or is this a rule as entertaining or confusing as the shoulder vs. crossbar high stick call?Thank you for your time,Jason HoefBill: In watching the play closely we see that CraigAnderson was actually set to play a shot (butterfly position) at the top of his goal crease with both skates and pads visible inside the blue paint. Montreals gritty little pest, BrendanGallagher attempted to set a legal screen tight to the top Andersons crease and while facing the shooter. In doing so, Gallagher reached back with his left glove (top of stick hand) which contacted Anderson in the facemask and knocked the Sens goalie off of his set position. Due to the fact that Gallagher reached back with his hand and stick resulting in contact with CraigAnderson inside his goal crease, the referee deemed it to be more deliberate than incidental and assessed the appropriate penalty for goalkeeper interference. The overriding rationale and language of rule 69 (Interference on the Goalkeeper) is that a goalkeeper should have the ability to move freely within his goal crease without being hindered by the actions of an attacking player. In all cases in which an attacking player initiates intentional or deliberate contact with a goalkeeper, whether or not the goalkeeper is inside or outside the goal crease and whether or not a goal is scored, the attacking player will receive a penalty. Lets take the scenario where the goalie is setup outside of his goal crease to cut down the angle and for the purpose of challenging the shooter, Rule 69.4 applies: If an attacking player initiates any contact with a goalkeeper, other than incidental contact, while the goalkeeper is outside his goal crease, and a goal is scored, the goal will be disallowed. A goalkeeper is not "fair game" just because he is outside the goal crease. The appropriate penalty should be assessed in every case where an attacking player makes unnecessary contact with the goalkeeper. However, incidental contact will be permitted when the goalkeeper is in the act of playing the puck outside his goal crease provided the attacking player has made a reasonable effort to avoid such unnecessary contact. The ambiguity contained in the language of this rule beginning with the word "However" places huge responsibility and pressure on the referee to ascertain incidental contact and if the attacking player made a "reasonable" effort to avoid such contact! Most often the benefit will (and should) go to the goalkeeper that is set to defend the incoming shot. When a goalkeepers motion/movement outside of his crease and prior to establishing a full set, results in contact with an attacking player and a goal results it should be deemed a good goal. The harsh truth, Bill, is that goalkeepers are provided special protection due to the unique nature of their position as provided and defined by the rules committee. Jason: The IIHF rule book states: Rule 534 - Interference - If an attacking player deliberately stands in the goal crease, without interfering with the goalkeeper, the referee shall stop the play and the ensuing face-off shall take place at the nearest face-off spot in the neutral zone. As you alluded to, Jason, once the puck enters the goal crease attacking players are allowed to enter the crease and legally play the puck. Rules then apply to the legal scoring of a goal.

They get off to slow starts, give up goals late in regulation. Nothing ever seems to be easy. So how do they handle the adversity? Shrug their shoulders and grit their teeth. Buoyed by a band-together resiliency that comes with having no real star players and an uncertain future in the desert, Phoenix has scrapped its way to the doorstep of the franchises first playoff series victory in 25 years. Leading the Chicago Blackhawks 3-1 after MikkelBoedkers second straight overtime winner, the Coyotes can close out the testy series in what figures to be a charged-up Jobing.com Arena for Game 5 Saturday night. "Theres two ways you can go with adversity: you can go poor us or you can look at it as a motivating factor. Our group looks at it as a motivating factor, simple as that," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said Friday. "The adversity that our team goes through on and off the ice is something that has made our group a lot stronger. You get into tough situations, nobody gets flustered." The Coyotes have looked almost uncomfortable unless theyre on the cusp of calamity, losing players, momentum and leads. Theyve found ways to fight back almost every time. Game 1 against the Blackhawks, Phoenix lost leading goal-scorer RadimVrbata on his first shift, gave up a goal with 14 seconds left, won it in overtime. Game 2: MartinHanzal goes down early, Chicago gets another goal to go in late, this time with 5 seconds left. The Coyotes lost that game, but rallied in Game 3 in Chicago, winning in overtime without Hanzal or forward LauriKorpikoski. The pattern continued in Game 4 Thursday night. Hanzal and Korpikoski again were out and scrappy forward RaffiTorres didnt play after being suspended for a chin-lifting hit on MarianHossa in the previous game. Another player was lost when enforcer PaulBissonnette received a game misconduct because he didnt have his jersey tied down and it came off during a fight with BrandonBollig. If that wasnt enough, Phoenix again gave up another late tying goal, this one by MichaelFrolik with 1:26 left to make the series the first since 1951 -- second ever -- to open with four straight overtime games. No matter to the Coyotes. Taking a been-here-before approach during the intermission, they charged out of the locker room and ended it quickly, with Boedker squeezing a puck between Chicago goalie CoreyCrawfords pads 2:15 into overtime. The victory puts Phoenix on the cusp of its first playoff series victory since 1987, when the franchise was still the Winnipeg Jets. Given the way the series has gone so far, it isnt likely to be easy. For a group thats played the past three seasons without an owner and uncertain future, they almost wouldnt have it any other way. "Weve joked about it: Its hockey the hard way," Coyotes captain ShaneDoan said. "You dont want to make it easy, youve got to make it hard. Its been fun, though." Chicago hasnt enjoyyed it much. wholesale jerseys. The Blackhawks have shown some resiliency of their own, rallying to force overtime with late goals three times. They just havent been able to finish it off. With chances to win all four games, Chicago has come through just once, winning Game 2 in Phoenix on BryanBickells goal in overtime. On the brink of elimination, the Blackhawks need to conjure up a rally quickly. They did it on the way to winning the Stanley Cup in 2010 and rallied to force a Game 7 last year against Vancouver after trailing the series 3-0. Fail on Saturday and itll be an off-season of looking back at what could have been, all those near-misses gnawing at them until camp starts next season. "Sure we can feel confident; weve won three playoff games in a row before," Blackhawks forward PatrickKane said. "But you cant win three in one night. (We just have) to focus on one game; every period, every shift can be the difference." The biggest task for the Blackhawks will be solving Coyotes goalie MikeSmith. One of the NHLs best goalies during his first full season as a No. 1, Smith has been superb through most of the series, almost singlehandedly carrying the Coyotes at times. Shaking off a blow to the head by Chicagos AndrewShaw in Game 2 -- one that left him lying on the ice for five minutes -- "Smitty" has frustrated the Blackhawks with his ability to move pucks from outside the crease and to stop almost everything that comes at him. When Chicago has had success against Smith, its been by creating traffic in front of him. The Blackhawks have done it for stretches, particularly with late flurries that led to tying goals in three games, but havent done it enough to gets pucks past him. "Hes a great goaltender and hes going to make the saves that he sees," Blackhawks forward PatrickSharp said. "You look at every goal weve scored its been bodies at the net, deflections, screens, ugly goals. Thats the way weve got to be successful." Phoenix has scored a couple of ugly goals against Crawford, which may lead to a change. Though steady through most of the series, Crawford has given up what some consider soft goals in overtime the past two games: Boedker from a sharp angle in Game 3, Boedker between his pads Thursday night. With veteran RayEmery waiting, Chicago coach Joel Quenneville could opt to make a change for Game 5, though he wasnt ready to reveal his hand just yet. "Were talking about that," Quenneville said before the team left for the desert on Friday. "Well talk about our scenario. I dont foresee making any announcements." One player will certainly be out; Hossas condition hasnt changed and he isnt making the trip to Phoenix. Torres had his hearing with the NHL on Friday, but the length of his suspension isnt expected to be known until sometime before the game on Saturday. The way its gone for the Coyotes, it may not matter whos on the ice for them. ------ AP Sports Writer Rick Gano in Chicago contributed to this report. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

MILWAUKEE - On a Saturday evening in early November the Raptors picked up their first road win of the season, defeating the Bucks in Milwaukee for the first time since 2008, the last year in which they qualified for the playoffs. wholesale nfl jerseys . Its been a long and unpredictable campaign that has ultimately led them back to Wisconsin, where five months later they would make history on the same court where it all began. With their 102-98 victory at Bradley Center on Saturday, the Raptors picked up their 21st road win of the season, a franchise record, also assuring theyll finish the year with a winning record away from home for the first time in team history. The Raptors have exceeded every expectation since that first game in Milwaukee but the most surprising notch on their belt may just be the success theyve enjoyed on the road, an unlikely strength for a young and inexperienced team. "Even the veteran teams I had in Dallas and Seattle, it was tough to win on the road," Dwane Casey said. "Our focus has been good on the road for whatever reason. We keep the same routine, we try to make sure our travel is efficient, which is sometimes hard to do, so guys can get rest." Some of their finest moments have come away from the Air Canada Centre. Their second road triumph came in Memphis, RudyGays return to his old stomping grounds, a game Toronto won by 16. Just over a month later, Gay now in Sacramento, they overcame a 19-point deficit to defeat Dallas in overtime only to knock off the Thunder in Oklahoma City two days later, a character-building trip for the emerging Raptors. Theyve won a couple contests in Chicago and stolen one in Brooklyn, thanks to a clutch steal and late-game jumper from PatrickPatterson. Even with those victories in mind, the one that sticks out above the rest came against a Lakers team - now sitting near the bottom of the Western Conference - in Los Angeles on a Sunday evening in December. Mired in a five-game losing streak and undermanned after a franchise-altering trade, the Raptors spoiled KobeBryants long anticipated return to the court. That was the night they adopted the us against the world mentality that has stuck with them. With the cards stacked against them, they came together in a special way and just a few days later they would add four veteran pieces to a puzzle that was suddenly falling into place. "We keep everything together," said GreivisVasquez, shortly after matching a season-high with 26 points and setting a new career mark with six three-pointers on Saturday. "Great chemistry, healthy locker room, great work ethic, were so connected to each other. This is a unique team." For all those impressive road victories on the resume, their 21st was rather forgettable. As Casey stood in front of the media, fuming after a narrow victory over the leagues worst team, the season flashed before all of our eyes. Look how far theyve come. They had just won their third straight, sixth in seven games, and their head coach could not get past their horrid first half. "The first half, we played like crap," he said. Harsh but true. "Theres no nice word you can put to it. We talked about it at halftime and after the game, we cant approach the game that way, its not acceptable for where we want to go and what we want to do. If we want to be average, fine, but to get where we want to go, to be a playoff calibre team, weve got to perform better than that. Doesnt matter if its Indiana or a high school team, it doesnt matter." He wasnt just blowing smoke. The first half was bad, real bad. Following a couple of inspired home wins over quality teams in Houston and Indiana, the 14-win Bucks shot 59 per cent in the opening 24 minutes, outscoring Toronto 38-14 in the paint and led by nine at intermission. "Our approach was not good, terrible," admitted Vasquez. "Were better than that and we understand that. We talked about it at halftime. Coach jumped on us and we reacted pretty well. In the second half we came to play. Thats the real Toronto Raptors." Toronto opened the second half on a 17-4 run to regain the lead minutes into the third quarter. They flipped the switch, something good teams do, and yes, the Raptors have become a good team. DeMarDeRozan scored 15 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, where he attempted eight free throws after failing to get to the line in the first half. Expectations have changed. The good news is no one is shying away from them. "We cannot have excuses," Vasquez said. "A team thats going to the playoffs, playing to win a division cannot have excuses. If you talk to TimDuncan, TonyParker, they will tell you how it is. Were trying to get there. Its going to take us a little time. But we got the win. Ugly, pretty, it was a win and we need to learn from this game. Weve got to understand that weve got to approach games differently. These five games we got left, weve got to run the table." Lowry, Johnson sit out KyleLowry missed his third straight game with a bruised left kneecap, while AmirJohnson sat out nursing a sore right ankle. Although both starters were with the team in Milwaukee - Johnson even took jump shots on the court ahead of the game - Casey opted to rest his ailing players with three days off before their next contest, at home to Philadelphia on Wednesday. "We need them we want them but wed rather not risk their health, more than anything else," the Raptors coach said. Although theyre making progress, Casey thought it best to sit them as a precaution, avoiding further injury, on Saturday. Theyre both considered day-to-day and will likely be questionable for Wednesdays game. The stat After a stellar performance against RoyHibbert and the Pacers on Friday, JonasValanciunas scored 17 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, recording his team-leading 22nd double-double of the season against the Bucks The quote "Ive been in locker rooms, man, I know how it is," said Vasquez, speaking on the teams chemistry. "Egos, money, its none of that here. None of that nonsense. Were just playing great basketball and were happy for each other. This is a real team." cheap nfl jerseys . Zheng won in her last final appearance in Auckland, New Zealand, in 2012, for her fourth career title. She broke Rybarikova six times, and will meet American qualifier Coco Vandeweghe, who beat 2005 champion Klara Koukalova 6-4, 6-2 with nine aces a week after losing to the Czech on Birminghams grass in the second round. cheap jerseys from china .B. -- Canadas Rachel Homan had ideal preparation for the playoffs at the Ford World Curling Championships with a pair of hard-fought wins over tenacious opponents Thursday.SEATTLE -- Without wavering, ChrisYoung will say it each time he is asked: Individual wins are not important to him. Its about the teams success, the veteran right-hander says, going to painstaking lengths to get his point across. Young reached his first double-digit win total in a season since 2006 on Wednesday, but it truly was a team effort this time around as the Seattle Mariners sent the Atlanta Braves to a season-high eighth straight loss with a 7-3 victory. It is the first time since May 2012 that the Braves, who were swept at Dodger Stadium and San Diego before losing two straight at Safeco Field, have lost eight in a row. "You cant get caught up in wins and losses as a starting pitcher. One day the media will stop evaluating us on that," Young said with a laugh. Young (10-6), who allowed all three runs in the third, was immediately picked up by his teammates, as the Mariners responded with a four-run third. DustinAckley led off with a home run and LoganMorrison added a three-run shot off JulioTeheran (10-8) for a 5-3 lead. Teheran was wildly inconsistent in six innings, yielding six runs in three frames, while allowing just one baserunner in the other three innings. Even after allowing Ackleys homer, Teheran appeared to have settled down with two quick outs and a 3-2 advantage. KyleSeager and Chris Taylor hit back-to-back singles, though, and Morrison deposited a fastball into the right-field seats. After Young protected the 5-3 lead through the fifth, the bullpen took over. After a quick hit, four Seattle relievers combined to throw four innings of scoreless relief, allowing three hits. "Its nice to have an eight-man bullpen with so many quality arms down there, so many choices," Seattle manager Lloyd McClendon said. Seager drove in Seeattles first run with a single in the first, and Taylor and KendrysMorales later added RBI singles. wholesale jerseys. The Braves scored all three runs in the third, with FreddieFreeman driving in two with a bases-loaded double, but Tommy La Stella was thrown out trying to score from first on the play. "Its just not matching up right now," Braves outfielder JasonHeyward said. "Its not clicking on all cylinders at the same time for us." TRAINERS ROOM Braves: SS AndreltonSimmons, who sprained his left ankle during Tuesdays game, was wearing an air cast and using crutches on Wednesday morning. He still hopes to avoid time on the disabled list. Mariners: OF MichaelSaunders, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, will join Triple-A Tacomaon Thursday to begin a rehab assignment. McClendon said Saunders will DH before moving to the outfield. ... INF WillieBloomquist did not get a positive report after being checked out by a doctor on Wednesday and will get a second opinion on his bruised right knee. UP NEXT Braves: Atlanta returns home to start a 10-game homestand against the Nationals on Friday. ErvinSantana (10-6) lost his only career start against Washington. Mariners: Rookie Roenis Elias (8-9) will make his second career start against the White Sox on Thursday. Elias allowed five runs in five innings in Chicago on July 4. ACK-ATTACK Ackley continues his torrid pace at the plate and is hitting .346 (37-107) since July 1 after collecting two hits, including the home run. HOME VS. AWAY Teheran did nothing to help boost his road stats. The right-hander entered the game 6-6 with a 3.91 ERA away from Turner Field. At home, Teheran is 4-1 with a 1.48 ERA, which is tied for the major league lead in that category. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco Giants have activated right-hander MattCain from the 15-day disabled list and designated lefty DavidHuff for assignment.George Brett Royals Jersey . Cain was activated in time to start Fridays series opener against the New York Mets. Cain had been sidelined since May 22 with a strained right hamstring. He is 1-3 with a 3.66 ERA in eight starts this season. Huff was 1-0 with a 6.30 ERA in 16 relief appearances. Sean Doolittle Athletics Jersey . Langer appeared to be in trouble when his second shot on the par-5 18th ended up in the rough short of the green. He hit a brilliant pitch to 5 feet and made the putt after Slumans birdie attempt rolled just wide. Yordano Ventura Royals Jersey . - Once GeraldGreen gets going, he doesnt think he can be stopped.BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Buffalo Sabres goalie JhonasEnroth will not join the NHLs worst team on its upcoming five-game road trip after he sustained a lower-body injury in Sundays 2-0 loss to Montreal. "Hes going to get further evaluation and stay behind," coach Ted Nolan said Monday. "Right now it looks at least a little bit better today than it did yesterday." After the Sabres flew out of Buffalo on Monday, Enroth posted on his Twitter account a photo of his right leg in an immobilizing device and wrote, "For the next couple weeks ... " The Sabres (19-41-8) will likely start rookie NathanLieuwen on Tuesday in Calgary. Lieuwen stopped all 10 shots he faced in his NHL debut Sunday after being called up from AHL Rochester earlier in the day. Buffalo also called up goalie MattHackett from Rochester on Monday to back up Lieuwen. Hacket, a former third-round draft pick, played 13 games with the Minnesota from 2011-13 before the Sabres traded for him last year. Nolan said injured backup MichalNeuvirth will travel with the Sabres, but his status for Tuesday is up in the air. Neuvirth has missed two games with a lower-body injury, but was able to work out on the ice Monday. "Hes a day-to-day-er," Nolan said. "He could wake up (Tuesday) morning fresh as a daisy." The Sabres have gone through several goalies since trading RyanMiller to St. Louis on Feb. 28. In addition to Enroth, Neuvirth and Lieuwen, the Sabres have dressed JaroslavHalak, who was acquired in the Miller trade and backed up Enroth for one game before being dealt to Washington, and Ryan Vinz, a HarborCenter employee summoned in a pinch as Enroths bacckup after Millers trade was made an hour before the Sabres game against the Sharks. Oscar Taveras Cardinals Jersey. Neuvirth has started two games since he was acquired in a trade March 5. He made 51 saves Thursday in a 4-2 loss at Carolina, but complained of soreness during warmups Saturday prior to Buffalos 4-1 loss at the New York Islanders. "It was a tough game in Carolina," Neuvirth said. "I cant really tell you what happened because I dont even know. I woke up the next morning and I was sore." Enroth was hurt after being bowled over by Canadiens forward BrendanGallagher in the second period of Sundays loss. Driving up the left side on a partial break, Gallagher just got a shot off when he was shoved from behind by Sabres defenceman JamieMcBain and knocked into Enroth. The goalie was on the ice for a few minutes before he got up and attempted to stretch his right leg while being examined by a trainer. Enroth then skated to the bench and was escorted into the locker room. Lieuwen, a former sixth-round draft pick, was forced into action for the third time in three nights after playing Friday and Saturday in the minors. "Usually after three in three, youre a little more tired and sore, but I actually feel really good," Lieuwen said Monday. "I feel like I have the energy and I feel like the adrenalines starting to ease off a little bit. I can kind of ease off and get comfortable and do my thing." The Sabres continue to slide, having lost six straight in regulation -- their worst streak since losing seven in a row from Dec. 4-19, 2003. They have scored just five goals in the past six games and have a league-low 132 goals on the season. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

Topic : World Cup.

PITTSBURGH -- BernhardLanger spent 45 anxious minutes Friday night wondering if the driver that he has used the last two years would be healthy enough to make it to work Saturday. Jamari Lattimore Packers Jersey . Fortunately, a Champions Tour club technician was able to find a replacement screw for the one that busted inside the clubhead at the end of Langers second round at the Senior Players Championship. The "gamer" back in his ever steady hands, Langer moved closer to his third major title on the 50-and-over circuit, overcoming a slow start to shoot a 4-under 66 in the third round and stay in front of hard-charging KennyPerry at Fox Chapel. "Theres always slight doubts," Langer said. "Youre putting something together. They say its the same, but youre never sure its the same ... I was convinced it was very close to the same. You dont want it to get into your head." It hardly looked like Langer was bothered while moving to 15-under 195 through 54 holes at an event where he has five top-10 finishes but no victories. The two-time Masters hit 10 of 14 fairways and shot a 4-under 31 on the back nine to regain control after briefly losing the lead to Perry. Perry, trying to join Arnold Palmer as the only player to win the Senior Players in consecutive years, was three behind after a 65 he allowed could have been even better. Still, the deficit is hardly daunting for Perry, who trailed FredCouples by two heading into the final round last June only to emerge with the first major of his professional career. "Hopefully, the results will be the same," Perry said, laughing. RussCochran, JoeDurant and BillGlasson were four back. Cochran had a 63, the low round of the day. Durant shot 67, and Glasson had a 68. JeffSluman was at 10 under following a 64 as the field began to spread out behind Langer. While Langers driver was just fine when he walked to the first tee on Saturday, everything else in his game looked shaky early on. The 56-year-old German three-putted the first hole for bogey and couldnt get up and down for par from a greenside bunker on the fifth. With Perry rocketing up the leaderboard in front of him, the unflappable Langer regained control of the tournament. A 30-foot birdie from the back of the green on the par-4 sixth got him going and he backed it up with another birdie on the seventh to bring him back to even par, setting the stage for the strong back nine. After finding himself one shot behind Perry at the turn, Langer put on a clinic. He birdied the 12th then ran off three more birdies from Nos. 14-16, all of them on putts inside 15 feet. Langer has been one of the most dominant players on the Champions Tour since making his debut in 2007. He has won 20 times since turning 50, including the Senior British Open and the U.S. Senior Open in 2010. He has challenged frequently at the Senior Players, where hes never finished worse than 13th in six starts, including a tie for eighth behind Perry last June. This time Langer finds himself in the role of leader, but hell have an eyeful of Perry on Sunday after the streaky Kentuckian put together another scorching round at the par 70 layout. Perry bounced back a methodical 70 in the opening round with a 63 on Friday. He followed it with a roller-coaster 65 that included six birdies, an eagle and three bogeys. "I need to make that a little bit better tomorrow," Perry said. "I need to clean it up a little bit and put on a little bit of pressure." A birdie on No. 14 seemed to have Perry poised for his second straight 63, but he cooled over the closing stretch, bogeying the 16th after his tee shot landed against a tree. Playing into the wind on the uphill par-5 18th, he settled for par, leaving himself and the rest of the field with some work to do to catch Langer. Not that Langer is taking anything for granted. "I still have got to shoot under par tomorrow," he said. "I feel KennyPerry is going to go under par. Theres still 18 holes to play. Thats a lot of golf." Maybe, but Perry knows Langer isnt going to come back to the pack. Perry estimated it would take a 63 to make things interesting on Sunday. Anything less could turn the round into a victory lap for his good friend. "If he kicks my butt, Ill shake his hand, give him a hug, whatever," Perry said. "Were going to go out and compete and see where the chips fall." Sam Shields Youth Jersey . -- Last month, RichieIncognito said severe repercussions would be warranted if the Miami Dolphins kept allowing sacks at such an alarming rate. Andrew Quarless Jersey . 1 overall pick likes best about football. "Big hits," he said. "Im all about hitting. I dont care who it is." Thats what the Houston Texans are counting on from the South Carolina defensive end after skipping a chance to take a quarterback -- their top need -- with the top pick Thursday night.As 2013 winds to a close, TSN.ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. TSN.cas writing staff reflects on the best soccer moments from the past 12 months including CR7 one-upping Messi, Fergies farewell, the redemption of Robben and more! Cristiano Ronaldo will score whenever he wants to By: Ken Rodney He scores in La Liga and in the Champions League for Real Madrid. He scores for his country Portugal. He scores when he wants. That is the story of 2013 for the incredible Cristiano Ronaldo, who alongside Barcelonas Lionel Messi and Bayern Munichs Frank Ribery is a finalist for the Ballon dOr, FIFAs player of the year award. Fitting that he will face Messi for that award because there is always a place in a Ronaldo story where a comparison to Messi must be made, only this time it slants well in the favour of the Portuguese international. His 68 goals for club and country during 2013 are more than Messi and Ribery combined. During the current 2013-14 La Liga season he is joint top scorer with 17 goals, 9 more than his Argentinian rival, who to be fair is currently battling an injury. In international play this year he has 10 goals in nine matches, including two three-goal performances. While he will finish the year without getting his hands around a team trophy, it is impossible to not be impressed by the 2013 submitted by Cristiano Ronaldo. Fergie Says Farewell By: Mike Beauvais When Sir Alex Ferguson called time on his legendary managerial career in early May, the math showed that Manchester Uniteds season-ending match on May 20 at West Bromwich Albion would be the Scotsmans 1500th in charge of the club. It would be an anti-climatic one. United locked up the BPL title weeks earlier, but the United-West Brom season finale ended up being a highly entertaining 5-5 draw. Uniteds May 12 match, though, saw "Fergie" manage Manchester United for the last time at his beloved Old Trafford. As Ferguson made his way down to his familiar spot on the United bench, he greeted supporters and signed autographs, but there was no hiding the emotion in the Scotsmans face. It seemed as if it were just dawning on him that this would be the final time he took that walk. In the 86th-minute, Rio Ferdinand made sure his gaffer would go out a winner when he volleyed home to give United the 2-1 victory. After the match ended, United received its championship trophy presentation and Ferguson addressed the crowd for one last time. "If you think about it, those last-minute goals, the comebacks, even the defeats, are all part of this great football club of ours," Ferguson told his rapt audience. "Its been an unbelievable experience for all of us, so thank you for that." He closed his remarks with a stark reminder to the Old Trafford faithful, one that seems aalmost prescient now. Don Barclay Womens Jersey. "Id also like to remind you that when we had bad times here, the club stood by me, all my staff stood by me, the players stood by me," said Ferguson. "Your job now is to stand by our new manager. That is important." Nobody expects David Moyes to be the new Alex Ferguson, but then again, nobody expected Alex Ferguson to be Alex Ferguson. Arjen Robben finds Champions redemption By Shane McNeil After the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final I had begun to believe that something was permanently broken in Arjen Robben. One of the worlds premier footballers, the Dutchman had Bayern Munichs 2012 European title on his foot when he drove an extra-time penalty into Petr Cech. Then, when the game went to penalty kicks, he was nowhere to be seen. His summer would get even worse when the Dutch team was bounced from Euro 2012 without a win, scoring just two goals. Yet, he was offered a second chance with Bayern taking on Borussia Dortmund in the first ever all-German Champions Final. In the 60th minute, Robben sent out a prayer from the left side of the goal and a ball that seemd destined for a goal kick suddenly found its way to Mario Mandzukics boot across the face of the goal and into the back of the net. A fluke, I told myself… A lucky bounce. Then in the 89th, the real Robben returned. Thundering into the box, he split two defencemen, forced Roman Weidenfeller wide and slipped a dribbler the other way, into the goal. Robben exorcised his Champions demons, claiming Man of the Match along the way. Iceland misses World Cup; FIFA misses out By Shane McNeil Seemingly every major international brings some flavor from the fans when it comes to soccer. Euro 2012 had the Irish fans serenading their team with "The Fields of Athenry" as they bowed out, winless. The 2010 World Cup had its ever-present vuvzelas, so loud that broadcasters tried to find a way to phase them out for live broadcasts. There will likely be a story for Brazil 2014, but it will not- sadly- be the fans of the Icelandic national team. Iceland was in a balanced qualifying group that featured top-10-ranked Switzerland and Slovenia, which had qualified for both Euro 2012 and the 2010 World Cup. On the last day of qualifying, Iceland held on to a 1-1 draw with Norway, while Switzerland did them a huge service by eliminating Slovenia with a 1-0 victory. Iceland headed to the play-off round with a chance to become the smallest nation to ever qualify for soccers biggest tournament, bringing their boisterous and colourful fans with them- in spirit at least. Sadly, Iceland would fail to score against Croatia, dropping the play-off 2-0 on aggregate, keeping one of the best stories of the qualification round out of the big finale. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

NASHVILLE -- The Tennessee Titans have kicked off their search for a new head coach by interviewing Cincinnati Bengals offensive co-ordinator Jay Gruden.Jeremy Lane Seahawks Jersey . The Titans confirmed Tuesday that Gruden had finished interviewing with general manager Ruston Webster. Gruden has been the Bengals offensive co-ordinator the past three seasons as Cincinnati reached the playoffs each of those years. Gruden interviewed last season with four different teams about head coaching jobs. The Titans are one of five NFL teams still looking for a new coach after firing Mike Munchak after three seasons on Saturday. This is only the teams second coaching search since leaving Texas for Tennessee in 1997, and the first conducted by Webster. Tennessee went 7-9 this season extending a playoff drought to five straight years with the last post-season win back in January 2003. Gruden, who interviewed with Jacksonville, Philadelphia, Arizona and San Diego for head coaching jobs last season, is available to interview now because the Bengals (11-6) lost to San Diego in the wild-card round Sunday. Gruden also is due to interview Wednesday with the Washington Redskins, according to a person with familiar with the situation, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team has not made information on the search public. He played in college at Louisville between 1985 and 1988 before winning four titles in the Arena Football League as a quarterback. He got his start in coaching in Nashville with the then-Nashville Kats in the AFL in 1997 before becoming head coach of the AFLs Orlando Predators where he won two more league titles. Gruden went to work in the NFL in 2002 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an offensive assistant working seven seasons for his brother Jon Gruden. Webster also worked for the Buccaneers during part of that time. The Titans also have asked for permission to talk to Jim Caldwell, the Ravens offensive co-ordinator and former Indianapolis head coach, according to John Wooten. The chairman of the Fritz Pollard Alliance said Caldwell is expected to interview with Tennessee later this week. Other candidates reportedly include Bengals defensive co-ordinator MikeZimmer and Dallas special teams coach Rich Bisaccia. Chargers offensive co-ordinator Ken Whisenhunt and Seahawks defensive co-ordinator Dan Quinn also are expected to be candidates but cannot interview while their teams remain in the playoffs.

ATLANTA -- Lou Williams is out of the doghouse. cheap jerseys from china . Good thing, because the Atlanta Hawks really needed him Monday night. Williams scored 22 points off the bench to give some help to one-man show PaulMillsap, rallying Atlanta to a 103-95 victory that denied the Philadelphia 76ers their first winning streak in nearly three months. The Hawks, clinging to the final playoff spot in the East, snapped a six-game losing streak and won for only the seventh time in 27 games. They came into the night one game ahead of the New York Knicks. "We all kind of looked at each other," said Hawks guard KyleKorver, who returned to the lineup after missing six games with back spasms. "We all know whats on the line." Williams sat out seven straight games in March, but it didnt have anything to do with being hurt. He was on the outs with first-year coach Mike Budenholzer, who didnt play his top bench scorer for seven straight games even though the Hawks were struggling mightily. The message received, Williams playing time has picked up over the last seven games. He came through with two crucial 3-pointers in the closing minutes as the Hawks bounced back from an early 14-point deficit. "Thats what weve been expecting from him all season," teammate DeMarreCarroll said. "Coach did a good job of not playing Lou, to show him that he couldnt take his opportunities for granted. Hes playing some better basketball now." Millsap carried the Hawks much of the night, also snagging a season-high 17 rebounds. But Williams hit the biggest shots down the stretch, a floater that snapped a 92-all tie, then back-to-back 3s from deep in the same corner to finish off the 76ers. It was his most points since a season-high 28 against Charlotte on Dec. 28. "That was the first time I had to deal with that in my career," Williams said on his benching. "We werent in a good rhythm and Coach wanted to change things up, try something new. He told me to stay ready. Thats what I did." The 76ers were coming off a victory over Detroit, snapping an NBA record-tying streak of 26 consecutive losses. But they couldnt win two in a row for the first time since Jan. 4. ThaddeusYoung led Philadelphia with 23 points, while JamesAnderson chipped in with 19. If only the 76ers could have figured out a way to stop Williams. "Lou did what Lou does -- came out and hit two big 3s, and the game pretty much was determined at that stage," 76ers coach Brett Brown said. "He went back to the old Lou." The 76ers led from the opening minutes until late in the third, when the Hawks stormed to the front by closing the period on a 9-0 run. Williams got it going with a three-point play, Carroll dunked off a turnover, Williams made two more free throws, and Carroll laid one in to give Atlanta a 75-73 lead heading to the final quarter. Philadelphia turned it over twice and missed its final four shots of the period, the last of those a reverse layup by ElliotWilliams that rolled off the rim. Atlantas MikeScott stood defiantly over Williams after playing him tough, the 76ers player sprawled out beneath him on the floor. The Hawks shot just 32 per cent in the first half, were out front for a total of only 29 seconds, and trailed 53-43 at the break. NOTES: 76ers F ArnettMoultrie was suspended five games without pay for a league drug violation. Moultrie, who played 12 games for Philadelphia this season, was assigned to Delaware of the D-League. He cant play with the minor league team during his suspension, either. "Arnett is still a part of the team and we will reach out to him and help him where we can," Brown said. ... Korver finished with 11 points on 3-of-10 shooting. ... Atlanta swept the season series, following up a 113-103 victory at home and a 125-99 win in Philadelphia that started the 76ers historic losing streak. jersyes nfl wholesale . -- The Anaheim Ducks realize theyre in for plenty of tight defensive games in the next seven weeks while the rest of the NHL attempts to catch them atop the standings. nfl jerseys china . Homan and her Team Canada (1-0) rink from Ottawa scored four in the eighth end for an 8-3 victory over Manitobas Chelsea Carey (0-1) on Saturday night at the Maurice Richard Arena.PHILADELPHIA -- RobertoHernandez might want to have his next start switched, as well. Hernandez pitched four-hit ball over 7 1-3 innings, outdueling GioGonzalez and leading the Philadelphia Phillies past the Washington Nationals 1-0 Sunday. ChaseUtley hit an RBI single in the first inning for the only run. Hernandez (2-1) struck out three and walked three. His start was moved up two days because ColeHamels had the flu, and he retired 14 of 15 batters in the middle innings. "Not a big deal, whatever I had to do," Hernandez said. "I kept the ball down and tried not to overthrow. Im happy. It was a great game for my team and for me, too." Philadelphia manager Ryne Sandberg likes what Hernandez has added to the Phillies rotation as the fifth starter. "We like his stuff," Sandberg said. "Hes a ground ball pitcher. He has a durable arm. He likes the ball. Hes reliable and he can throw a lot of pitches in the game. "I like the way hes throwing. He solidifies our rotation and is a good complement. Hes funky out there, hes different and I like what hes doing right now." MikeAdams and AntonioBastardo each got an out in the eighth. JonathanPapelbon pitched the ninth for his ninth save in 10 chances. Gonzalez (3-2) allowed four hits in 7 1-3 innings. He struck out seven and walked two. "It was just a good pitchers duel," Gonzalez said. "I just tried to keep us in the game as long as possible." Philadelphia scored when JimmyRollins hit a one-out triple and Utley followed with a single. "That set the tone for our game," Sandberg said. BenRevere tripled with one out in the Philadelphia third, and Gonzalez didnt give up another hit until JaysonNixs leadoff single in the eighth. "Gio pitched well and their guy did too," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "It was a good, old-fashioned pitching duel." GGonzalez got some help from his defence during that stretch, as NateMcLouth robbed Rollins of a hit with a diving catch in left field to open the sixth. cheap nfl jerseys. The slumping McLouth didnt have success with the bat, though, going 0 for 3. He has just four hits in his last 44 at-bats, and has been filling in for the injured BryceHarper. DenardSpan opened the eighth with a single off Hernandez and the Philadelphia starter departed after KevinFrandsens sacrifice bunt. Adams, who gave up the lead and took the loss in Friday nights series-opening loss to the Nationals, got JaysonWerth to ground out. Bastardo then relieved and walked AdamLaRoche before striking out AnthonyRendon. "Weve had some really key hits over the course of the season," Williams said. "It just wasnt our day." Said Gonzalez, "Were still good and the guys are working hard. Im not worried about this team." The Phillies unsuccessfully challenged a safe call by first-base umpire Fieldin Culbreth in the second. Culbreth ruled that IanDesmond beat Rollins throw from shortstop to first baseman RyanHoward. The delay lasted 2 minutes, 42 seconds.

DETROIT -- Swedens Olympic hockey team has replaced an injured Detroit Red Wings forward with a healthy one. Nike Air Max 90 Kopen . GustavNyquist was given a spot on the roster on Monday to replace JohanFranzen. The 24-year-old Nyquist has been a key player lately for the Red Wings and that likely helped him earn a spot for the Sochi Games.

SAN DIEGO -- JimmyWalker is playing the opening two rounds of the Farmers Insurance Open with TigerWoods. Nike Roshe Run Nederland . That will be 35 more holes than the first time they played together. Walker was a senior at Baylor when he used his parents credit card -- against their wishes because it was during finals -- to go through Monday qualifying for the Byron Nelson Championship. He got in the field and after taking one final exam, ran up to Dallas for a practice round at Cottonwood Valley using a local caddie. "All of a sudden, Tiger is over on the front nine and my guys is like, Hey, theres Tiger over there," Walker said. This was 2001. It was Woods first tournament since he won the Masters for his fourth straight major. "So he pretty much was owning everybody," Walker said. Woods skipped over to the par 5 that Walker was playing, so Walker picked up his ball and headed to the next tee. Woods picked up his ball and headed to the same tee. "Hes like, Can I play through you? Im trying to play real fast and get a couple of holes in? I said, Dude, you can do whatever you want," Walker recalled. So this was the one hole they played together, and it was memorable for Walker for one reason. "I am literally shaking," he said. "I have every bad-swing thought possible -- dont shank it, top it, all that stuff. I make contact. I look up and its heading right at it. Cant see it because its kind of in the setting sun. We walked down there and he asked whats going on, I told him I Monday qualified. We talked and it was really cool and he was really nice. We get down there and his ball is about 15 feet away and mines about 6 feet away." Woods picked up his ball and was on his way. But there was a lesson for Walker. "I can remember thinking, Man, if I was that nervous and I hit that good of a shot, I guarantee I will never be that nervous again my entire life -- ever," Walker said. He recalls narrowly missing the cut. And then he qualified for his first U.S. Open at Southern Hills. Walker played a practice round that week with Nick Faldo. No big deal. "It was so easy compared to that one shot," he said. So when his wife sent him a text Tuesday that he was playing with Woods and Jordan Spieth, Walker offered a predictable response: "Sounds fun."

LOS ANGELES -- PauGasol and SteveNash watched the entire fourth quarter from the bench. wholesale jerseys . KobeBryant sat one row behind them in a black shirt and suit. The Lakers three veteran stars were spectators for one remarkable show put on by five Lakers reserves who werent ready to cede Los Angeles supremacy to their Staples Center rivals. XavierHenry scored a career-high 22 points, JordanFarmar added 16, and the Lakers surged past the Los Angeles Clippers in the final minutes for a 116-103 victory in both clubs season opener Tuesday night. By the time the Lakers reserves were done with BlakeGriffin and ChrisPaul, coach Doc Rivers Clippers debut was wrecked -- and so were many preconceptions about the Lakers prospects this season. The Lakers 76 bench points were the most in club history since March 1985. "Its not a bad thing to be the underdog sometimes," said JodieMeeks, who scored nine of his 13 points in the fourth quarter. "No expectations. We go out there and play hard. Whats the worst that can happen? We lose, and people say were no good?" The Lakers 41-point fourth quarter was downright stunning, but the identities of the players responsible for this exciting, free-flowing opener were even more jaw-dropping. "Mike (DAntoni) did a great thing: He didnt bring his starters back in," Rivers said. "There was a point where I was thinking: Please bring them back in." A team that was 28th in the NBA in reserve scoring last season got outstanding bench play from a five-man unit, including three guys who werent even on the team last season: WesleyJohnson, two-time NBA champion Farmar, and Henry, the former first-round pick who burned out in Memphis and New Orleans. A new season is a chance for a fresh start, and Henry needs one just as much as the Lakers. He scored 12 points in the fourth quarter while leading a 28-8 run. "Were a deep team, and people dont think were that good," Henry said. "That always fuels us. People are saying were going to finish 12th or whatever, but we have a great group of guys who go out there and play hard. Were young. Were athletic. We get after it." The long-established hoops hierarchy in Los Angeles flipped earlier this year: The Clippers won a division title and became veteran championship contenders, while the Lakers lost their stars to injury or free agency and prepared for a long rebuilding process. At least in the opener, the Lakers flipped it again -- and embarrassed Rivers in the process. "We were not ready tonight," said Rivers, the longtime Celtics coach who hopes to push the Clippers into title contention. "(The Lakers) have heard for probably the last two months how good (the Clippers) were going to be ... so you knew that they were going to play like this was the world championship -- with that type of energy. And I thought we never matched it. Everything they did was harder than us and more physical than us. They destroyed us on the glass and destroyed us in turnovers. So it was a good lesson for us." Griffin scored 19 points and Paul had 15 points and 11 assists for the Clippers, who beat the Lakers four times last season on the way to their first Pacific Division title. DeAndreJordan added 17 points and 11 rebounds. "Youve got to give it to them. They outplayed us," Griffin said. "They did a good job. They were ready. They turned up the heat in the fourth quarter, and we didnt respond." Gasol scored 11 of his 15 points in the first quarter, and JordanHill added 12 points and eight rebounds as the Lakers improved to 42-24 on opening night, the best winning percentage in NBA history. After the off-season losses of DwightHoward and MettaWorldPeace, not much is expected from the Lakers. Yet they thrived for a night without Bryant, who missed a season opener for the first time since 2006. The fourth-leading scorer in NBA history hasnt returned to practice this fall after tearing his Achilles tendon late last season. The Clippers led 57-55 at halftime while hitting nearly 59 per cent of their shots. They pushed their lead to eight points in the third quarter, but the Lakers went ahead 86-83 with 9:06 to play on Meeks three-point play. "Oh, man, it seemed like it just happened so fast," Paul said. "Those guys executed their game plan, and when youre missing somebody like Kobe, you feed off that energy." NOTES: The evening began with a moment of silence for Bill Sharman, who died last week at 87. He coached the 1971-72 Lakers to their first championship in Los Angeles, winning an NBA-record 33 consecutive games along the way. ... The Clippers won their final seven games of the regular season last spring. ... Floyd Mayweather Jr., Diddy, Yasiel Puig, Tommy Lasorda and Flea attended the game. cheap jerseys . -- Michael Phelps has competed in the second event of his comeback and failed to advance to the 50-meter freestyle final. nfl jerseys china .ca NBA Power Rankings, but there are changes among those teams in pursuit.PARIS -- Ireland held on grimly in a nail-biting finish to beat France 22-20 and win its first Six Nations since 2009, giving centre Brian ODriscoll the perfect send-off in his last test on Saturday. With just over a minute remaining, ODriscolls and Irish hearts sank when France No. 8 Damien Chouly scored in the right corner, but the try was disallowed for a forward pass from captain Pascal Pape. "Im over the moon, very happy for the lads and obviously very happy for Brian in his last international," Ireland captain Paul OConnell said. "Historically, this is always our toughest Six Nations with England away from home and France away from home, so to win the championship with these two fixtures is a great success." Ireland flyhalf Jonathan Sexton scored two tries among a personal 17 points to steal the limelight in ODriscolls world-record 141st and final test. Right winger Andrew Trimble got Irelands other try. "There is where it all began and to finish with a medal around my neck 15 years later is incredible," said ODriscoll, who was still in his jersey at the news conference. "Its been a fantastic Six Nations for us. Ive enjoyed every second. I dont really want to take this jersey off yet." Irelands last win in Paris was in 2000, when ODriscoll, nine months into his great career, scored a hat trick of tries and made his name. "I dont think anybody will step into Brians shoes," Ireland coach Joe Schmidt said. "Theyre rather big, but hopefully they can grow into them." Irelands title was only its second in 29 years, and relegated England to second for a third straight year. England beat Italy 52-11 in Rome earlier, forcing Ireland and France, a long shot for the title, to win or miss out. France finished fourth, Wales rising to third with a 51-3 defeat of Scotland. France, after an indifferent campaign, came to the party with all guns loaded and produced the games highlight moment, its first try to fullback Brice Dulin. There was a controversial second try from hooker Dimitri Szarzewski, who knocked on before scoring against the post. "Of course its frustrating to finish fourth," France coach Philippe Saint-Andre said. "You cant say our players cant play rugby and that they dont have any desire. We showed enormous ambition to play good rugby. The highesst level is very cruel and you have to congratulate Ireland and ODriscoll. cheap nfl jerseys. " France missed chances in the last 10 minutes to take the lead, when replacement scrumhalf Jean-Marc Doussains penalty drifted wide and the disallowed try. "I would have liked to have closed it out a lot better than we did," OConnell said. "Ive been coming to Paris since I was 22, its a very tough place to win. Ive never won here before. In my year as captain, at 34 and in Brians last cap, it really is an incredible feeling." ODriscoll kissed the Six Nations trophy before OConnell raised it aloft, sending Irelands large contingent of fans into delirium again. "I tried to channel the emotions into the performance. You cant allow the occasion to get the better of you," ODriscoll said. "You have to try and make sure youre a cog in the wheel of the team. The emotions come after and they did, and Im sure therell be a few tears later on with multiple beers on board. But its a wonderful way to finish." Early momentum, especially from centre Mathieu Bastareaud, was with France for a 6-0 lead. Sextons first try cut the lead to one, and soon after, scrumhalf Conor Murrays clever footwork and pass released Trimble for a try and 12-6. Stung back into action, the French pack took control. With blood pouring from a cut under his right eye, Szarzewski gained ground and flyhalf Remi Tales lofted a pin-point cross-kick to the right corner, where winger Yoann Huget brilliantly palmed it down to Dulin, who scored. It was Frances best move of the tournament. Sexton missed a penalty, the last act of the half, to allow France to go into the interval 13-12 ahead but without prop Nicolas Mas, who trudged off with his right arm in a sling. In the second half, Trimbles superb run down the right almost earned the supporting ODriscoll a try. Ireland recycled, and Murray sent Sexton over for the seven-pointer. Another penalty from Sexton made it 22-13. But France wasnt finished. Just after the hour mark, Szarzewskis try that really wasnt cut the margin to two. The Irish resisted the final French onslaught to send ODriscoll into a happy international retirement "Not many people get to finish their career on their own terms and with high emotions," ODriscoll said. "I feel very fortunate." wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

LA PLAGNE, France -- Canadian skicross star Marielle Thompson capped her dream season in style Sunday by winning her second career Crystal Globe. Nike Roshe Run Mens Australia . Thompson, who won Olympic gold last month at the Sochi Games, edged Fanny Smith of Switzerland to win the final World Cup of the season and the overall title. "Once I was in the gate I was in my zone and comfortable," Thompson said on a conference call. "I just focused on what I needed to do. I think thats the way to do it." The Canadian entered the competition with a slim five-point lead on Smith in the World Cup overall standings. Thompson fell behind her main rival in the final before executing a dramatic pass to move in front to stay. "I knew that everything came down to that last run down the course so it was pretty intense, especially being behind out of the gate and having to make that pass," Thompson said. "It was probably one of the most exciting moments for me in a long while on the skicross course. "It was really great for me to make that pass. Its not very fun skiing behind people. I like skiing in front." Smith settled for silver and Georgia Simmerling of West Vancouver, B.C., won bronze. Calgarys Brady Leman won bronze in the mens race. Jean Frederic Chapuis of France won gold and Austrias Christoph Wahrstoetter took the silver. "I think I made more finals than any other guy this year," Leman said. "They didnt really go my way and I didnt have my best skiing when I made it to the medal rounds and when it really counts. I know Im there and I know Ive been super-competitive every week this year which is good because thats something that Ive struggled with in the past. "But you always want more so I know what Ive got to focus on this summer at least anyway." Leman reached the final at the Olympics but just missed the podium with a fourth-place finish. Thompson led a 1-2 Canadian finish in the womens final at Sochi with teammate Kelsey Serwa. "The main goal this year was the Olympics and once I realized that goal I had to refocus and think about the Globe," said Thompson. "In the final (Sunday) I needed to be patient. I waited for the right moment (to pass) and it happened to be near the end. "I nailed the big super-G turn and I was able to move past her." Thompson, from Whistler, B.C., became the first Canadian to win a skicross Crystal Globe in 2012. The 21-year-old won this seasons overall title with 755 points. "Im just really happy that I could realize all my goals and not really disappoint myself," she said. Smith was second with 730 points and Ophelie David of France was third with 572 points. Swedens Victor Oehling Norberg won the mens Crystal Globe with 494 points. Andreas Matt of Austria was second with 482 points and Germanys Daniel Bohnacker was third with 399 points. Dave Duncan of London, Ont., was leading the World Cup rankings when he was injured during the qualification round at the last World Cup stop in Are, Sweden. He missed his last three races and settled for sixth overall. Switzerland won the Nations Cup for the second straight year with 2,261 points. Canada was second with 2,154 points. Nike Roshe Run Womens Sale . Algeria enters the match riding a wave of unexpected confidence after pummeling South Korea, 4-2, in Porto Alegre on Sunday. The Desert Foxes opened the scoring after 26 minutes as Carl Medjani sent a long ball over the top to the feet of striker Islam Slimani, who did well to split two South Korean defenders and touch it past goalkeeper Jung Sung-Ryong. Nike Free Run 2 . The 114th-ranked Lorenzi broke Monacos serve to go up 4-3 in the decisive set and held on to close the match in 2 hours, 34 minutes at the Ibirapuera Arena. The 32-year-old Italian squandered a match point before losing the second set, but was in control in the third to pick up the win in the ATP 250 tournament in South Americas biggest city. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- EJManuel followed the worst game of his career with the best. Call it progress, maturity or resiliency. The Buffalo Bills hope its a little of each. The rookie threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score, leading the Bills to a 27-20 victory against the banged-up Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday. Manuel bounced back from a four-interception performance at Tampa Bay last week and left his college state with his first win in five road starts. The former Florida State star didnt do anything spectacular, just dinking and dunking the Jaguars for 193 yards. He also ran for 37 yards, including an 8-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Still, it was his first three-TD game at this level. "I think thats a part of the maturation as an offence, especially us young guys and the skilled positions," Manuel said. Manuel completed 17 of 24 passes. RobertWoods caught five of them for 82 yards, including a 7-yard score. ScottChandler added five receptions for 54 yards. The Bills (5-9) turned the game twice, once at the end of the first half and again in the fourth quarter. Buffalo scored 10 points in the final 2:14 before halftime, taking a 20-10 lead into the locker room. The Jaguars (4-10) rallied to tie it in the fourth, evening the score on ChadHennes 13-yard TD pass to MarcedesLewis. Manuel answered, though, capping an 89-yard drive with a 1-yard TD pass to fullback FrankSummers. With it, Manuel set the franchises rookie record for touchdown passes with 11. "He learns from snap to snap," Bills coach Doug Marrone said. "Youre seeing a quarterback thats involved in a process thats getting better and better. Weve seen times when hes played very, very well." Jacksonville was in the game all day despite playing without leading rusher MauriceJones-Drew, leading receiver CecilShorts III and starting left guard WillRackley. The Jaguars were in position to tie things up late, but a series of miscues proved costly. On first-and-goal from the 1, they lost 4 yards on Justin Todmans run wide. ChadHenne followed with two horrible throws, one receiver MikeBrown batted down to prevent an interception and another one StephonGilmore picked off in the end zone with 3:15 remaining. Henne said he threw the pass to Brown because he was being held and expected a flag. It never came. "Youuve got to throw it or theyre not going to see who the receiver is," Henne said. Nike Free Run Cheap. . "If you dont throw it, they dont call it. My job is to throw it where hes supposed to be and obviously they didnt see it." Still, the Jaguars had one final shot, getting the ball back with 1:46 remaining, but failed to pick up a first down. Henne was sacked for the fifth time on the final drive, giving Buffalo an NFL-leading 49. That also tied the franchise record set in 1995. "Weve been in these types of games throughout the year and have come up on the short side of it," Marrone said. "I give the players credit for hanging in there today because we came up on the side we want to be on." The Bills had lost five of their last six, including three in a row on the road. Jacksonville, meanwhile, had its three-game winning streak come to an end. "It was a game of missed opportunities," Jags coach Gus Bradley said. "We didnt play like were capable of playing, whether it was a fumble, interception, things like that. In the locker room, our hearts are broken right now because of this, but I felt like our spirit is not." Few outsiders gave Bradleys team a chance because of the injuries. Things got worse when backup guard MikeBrewster broke his left ankle in the first half. Along with Hennes late interception, the play Jacksonville will point to is DenardRobinsons fumble near the goal line early in the third. AaronWilliams knocked the ball loose for the Bills, and it rolled through the end zone for a touchback. "Definitely a bad taste in your mouth after the performance out there as a team today," Jaguars left tackle Cam Bradfield said. Equally alarming for Jacksonville was Buffalos 198 yards rushing. FredJackson had 80, and C.J.Spiller added 67. The gashing ground game opened things up for Manuel. "This game just shows how good EJ can be," Jackson said. "He had a rough game last week. It was something he put on himself that he has to play better. He came out and did that. " NOTES: Both teams were officially eliminated from playoff contention with Miamis win. ... Bills DT MarcellDareus (ankle) and SS AaronWilliams (ribs) left the game. Marrone had no update on either starter. ... Jaguars LB GenoHayes left the game twice with injuries, but returned both times. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

So has winning at home. AntoineVermette scored the deciding goal in the shootout for the second straight game, and the Coyotes won their fifth in a row, 3-2 over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night. Vermette, who gave the Coyotes a victory at San Jose on Saturday, trickled the puck just past the line in the sixth round of this tiebreaker. HenrikSedin lost control of the puck on his chance after Vermettes goal, and the Coyotes skated off with their third consecutive shootout win. "It was a game of inches," Phoenix coach Dave Tippett said, "you see that puck just slide over the goal line." RadimVrbata and ShaneDoan scored in regulation for the Coyotes, 7-0-1 at home. DanHamhuis and RyanKesler had goals for Vancouver. Vrbata had the other shootout goal for Phoenix. Alex Burrows was the only one to score in the tiebreaker for the Canucks. The series of close wins bodes well for the Coyotes, Doan said. "You get on a roll and you have confidence in a tight game," he said. "It makes a huge difference. Its a mental thing. The more confident we get, the better off were going to be." Winning at home also is a good sign if Phoenix is to be a contender. "If you look at all the teams that have a chance to win or be playoff teams, they all have a good home record," Tippett said. "So thats something weve talked about as a group, and we have to continue to push that. If we can establish a real good home feel and make this a hard place for teams to come and play, I think that carries over to your road record, too." Vancouver, which had won five of six, took the lead with two goals in the first 4:15 of the second period. Only 25 seconds in, Hamhuis scored with a wrist shot just after a faceoff in the Coyotes zone. The puck sailed to the left of goalie MikeSmith and into the nnet. cheap jerseys from china. The go-ahead goal came on a power play with 15:45 left in the period, a sharp slap shot from a few feet inside the blue line by Kesler for his ninth goal of the season. Phoenix tied it 2-2 with 2:21 left in the period when Doan slammed a one-timer past goalie Robert Luongo on a pass from KeithYandle. "Thats just a great play by KeithYandle," Doan said. "Not too many (defencemen) in our league would make that play. Most would just step into that and shoot that. Were fortunate weve got some guys back there that drive our whole offence." Vancouver coach John Tortorella blamed himself for Doans goal. "I tried to stretch my bench, and I shouldnt have," he said. "You can put that on me. I shouldnt have had my fourth line out there." The Coyotes were called for too many men on the ice during a line change in the final minute of the second period, but killed the penalty that stretched into the first minute of the third. The Coyotes took a 1-0 lead just 1:15 into the game when Vrbata tipped in a goal after a deflection of MartinHanzals shot. Phoenix had two quick chances for more with a pair of early power plays, the first when Sedin drew a penalty for hooking, the second on a slashing call against Kesler. But the Canucks, among the best in the NHL in penalty-killing this season, shut down both opportunities. The Coyotes had a couple of good opportunities during the first power play and none on the second. Smith, who had 48 saves at San Jose, made 31 against Vancouver. Luongo stopped 30 shots. NOTES: Phoenix defenceman DerekMorris left in the first period with a lower body injury. ... All six of Vrbadas goals have come at home. ... Phoenixs ZbynekMichalek played in his 600th NHL game. ...

EDMONTON -- Cristie Kerr grabbed a share of the lead Friday at the Canadian Womens Open, duelling co-leader Inbee Park almost shot for shot while overcoming the errant slam of a porta-potty door. Mike Trout Jersey . Kerr shot a four-under 66 for a second consecutive day, while Park carded a five-under 65, leaving both tied for top spot after two rounds at the Royal Mayfair Golf Club. Both were 8-under 132 in a day of golf under slightly overcast skies with gentle winds. Kerr, who won the Canadian Open in 2006, said its a challenging course. "Its a course where you have to really shape the ball off the tee and be creative," said the 35-year-old American. "I played very well the last couple of days. Its unfortunate I bogeyed the last hole today, but thats what happens when you hit an errant shot and have to chip out to a difficult pin." Making par on the par-4 final hole became a longshot for Kerr when she drilled her tee shot into the left rough. But a bad hole almost became disastrous when the swing on her approach shot was interrupted by the ka-thwam of a nearby spring-loaded portable toilet door. "I mean, (the noise) really scared me," she said. "I could have hooked (the ball) in the water." Kerr was in the same group as Park, the top-ranked player in the world. The 25-year-old South Korean has won six tournaments on the LPGA tour this year, including three majors. Earlier this month, the pressure was on when she had a chance at the Womens British Open to become the first golfer to win four majors in a tournament year. She said the nerves got to her a bit on the Old Course at St. Andrews, and she ended up tied for 42nd. Park said the time off since then has helped her game in Edmonton. "I worked on a couple of things after that because I wasnt hitting it my best at the British Open. Im obviously hitting it a lot better this week and putting a lot better," she said. "On the greens, I was really comfortable because theyre so pure wherever you hit it, its just going to go right there." Park followed up five birdies in the first round on Thursday with seven on Friday. Karine Icher of France logged a four-under 66 to finish tied with American Angela Stanford at one shot back heading into weekend play for the US$2-million purse. "Good putting made the difference today," said Icher, a 34-year-old seeking her first win on the tour. "The course is quite hard, (with) tricky fairways and big rough, so Im looking to get some good drives and putts on the weekend." Lydia Ko, the defending tournament champion, came into Friday tied for first, but finished the day with Laura Davies and Paula Creamer two shots off the pace. Ko shot a lights out five-under 65 in the first round, but managed only a one-under 69 Friday. "Ive just got to play my own game and hopefully get some more putts rolling in," said the 16-year-old from New Zealand. Englands Charley Hull, one of the stars of last weekends European win over the Americans at the Solheim Cup, continued her stellar play. The 17-year-old from carded a four-under 66 to vault from 20th spot into a four-way tie with Americans Kathleen Ekey, Stacy Prammanasudh and South Koreas Hee Young Park, at three shots back. "I played pretty solid. I wasnt hitting that good today on the front nine with my tee shots because I felt a little tired out there," said Hull. "The back nine I got something going, holed a few putts and Im pretty pleased with that." Ekey had the best score of the day with a six-under 64, including an eagle on the par-four first hole. A few of the big names fell by the wayside on cut day. Stacy Lewis, No. 2 in the world rankings, saw her game blow up in the first round on Thursday. She finished four over par 74 with seven bogeys. Lewis, from Texas, said she was mentally tired and exhausted from the Solheim Cup loss, and withdrew prior to the start of the second round. High profile American Michelle Wie said illness played a part in her poor play. The 23-year-old from Honolulu was six-over 76 Friday for a two-day total of nine-over 149. She said she, too, was hurting from the quick Solheim turnaround. "Im completely under the weather. I was struggling today, just could not get out of bed. I just felt really sick today, though that is no excuse," said Wie. "Im going to take advantage of the two days Im not playing, and just not leave my bed and just kind of sleep for 40 hours straight." Jennifer Kirby, the top Canadian from the first day, couldnt keep the momentum going. Kirby, from Paris, Ont., began the day tied for sixth, but four bogeys and two double bogeys dropped her to a six-over 76, missing the cut. "Because I did play really well yesterday and there was a lot of people following our group and stuff like that, I just felt a little uneasy at the beginning," said Kirby. "I was a little bit nervous and then it was hard to shake after I made a couple of bogeys." "The top Canadian heading into weekend play will be Samantha Richdale of Kelowna B.C. She was even par both days to sit eight behind the leaders. Jessica Shepley of Oakville Ont., sits nine behind. The other 18 Canadians in the field, including Lorie Kane of Charlottetown, missed the cut. Reggie Jackson Authentic Jersey .

GLENDALE, Ariz. Davante Adams Womens Jersey . -- The Phoenix Coyotes zipped around the ice, generating good scoring chances, getting into a scrap after a big hit, pumping in a goal late in the first period. It was just the kind of effort they needed against a team that had played the night before, particularly one thats ahead of them in the standings. OliverEkman-Larsson scored two goals, ThomasGreiss stopped 30 shots and the Coyotes kicked off an important five-game homestand with a 3-0 win over the Los Angeles Kings on Tuesday night. "We caught a team at the right time, but that being said, I thought we played the right kind of game to take advantage of it," Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. "We kept getting pucks deep, we put some pucks at the net and it was a pretty solid game throughout our lineup." The Coyotes needed to string together some victories during their homestand after a rough stretch dropped them to ninth in the Western Conference. They responded with arguably their best game of the season, playing solid in their own end while peppering JonathanQuick with 29 shots. AntoineVermette had a goal and an assist to extend his points streak to five games and ShaneDoan had his 500th career assist on Ekman-Larssons second goal. That was more than enough for Greiss, who had his second shutout this season, third career. "It was a huge game for us," Ekman-Larsson said. "We talked about this game and I think we played well for 60 minutes." Los Angeles laboured after playing the night before and for the fourth time in six nights. The Kings also continued to struggle in the offensive zone. Los Angeles was relegated to the outside mostly in the first two periods and hit the post twice in the third, unable to get anything past Greiss. The Kings have scored two goals in their past four games and have lost six of seven. "Tonight, I dont know how many really good chances we had," Kings captain DustinBrown said. "Probably a bit of them playing really well and us not being hungry enough to get to the dirty areas and if were going to score goals, thats what were going to have to get back to." The Coyotes have been tumbling down the Western Conference standings, losing seven of their past 10 games. They did rally from a 4-2 deficit to earn a point against Vancouver Sunday night behind Vermettes third career hat trick. Phoenix still had its offensive mojo going early against the Kings, creating some good chances and while getting traffic in front of Quick, who made some tough stops, including a sprawling save on JeffHalpern. Ekman-Larsson broke through late in the first period, whipping a wrister from the point past Quick. A physical game between two rivals became even rougher in the second period, when JordanNolan levelled KyleChipchura with a shoulder, setting of a scrum along the boards. Phoenix got a power play out of it and scored 12 seconds into it, when Ekman-Larsson beat Quick with a slapshot just outside the faceoff circle. Greiss had a string of tough saves as the game opened up late in the second period and Vermette put it out of reach in the third, punching in a rebound for his team-leading 19th goal of the season. The Kings hit the post twice in the final period, but, as has been the case lately, the pucks caromed away instead of into the net. "Theres a team-wide frustration and a personal frustration for some guys in here," Brown said. NOTES: Vermette has six goals and two assists during his points streak. ... The Kings have scored three goals in their past 38 power play chances. ... Coyotes LW PaulBissonnette received a 10-minute misconduct in the second period for throwing punches at Nolan after his hit on Chipchura. Jarrett Bush Youth Jersey .

The 38-year-old right-hander didnt pitch after June 1 in 2012 because of a strained right shoulder. His spleen was removed in January 2013 after he was injured when he fell in the snow at his home in Vermont. Pavano had been hoping to return to the major leagues this year. "Despite my strong desire to compete and hard work in preparing for the upcoming season, I feel that the amount of time lost from my spleen injury, coupled with the recovery from my complications from that injury, preclude me from continuing to compete at my highest level, which is necessary to perform in the major leagues," Pavano said in a statement released Wednesday by his agent, David Pepe. "I have achieved many things as a major league pitcher of which I am very proud. However, I feel at this time, I am simply not able to continue to pitch at the major leaggue level, and these last three months of rigorous training have failed to produce the results that I was looking for to allow me to continue my major league career. Morgan Burnett Jersey. quot; Pavano, an All-Star in 2004, was 108-107 with a 4.39 ERA for Montreal (1998-02), Florida 2002-04), the New York Yankees (2005, 2007-08), Cleveland (2009) and Minnesota (2009-12). He was an All-Star in 2004, going 18-8 with a 3.00 ERA and earning a $39.95 million, four-year contract with the Yankees. Injuries limited Pavano to 26 starts, 145 2-3 innings and a 9-8 record during his Yankees contract. He rebounded after leaving New York and went 17-11 for the Twins in 2010, when he tied for the AL lead in complete games with seven. "It has been an honour and a privilege to have been a major league baseball player, and the gratitude I have for being able to do that is profound and beyond any expression I can make in words," he said. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

KAPOLEI, Hawaii -- Japans Ai Miyazato won the LPGA LOTTE Championship on Saturday for her eighth career LPGA Tour title, birdieing three of the last six holes for a 2-under 70 and a four-stroke victory. Andrew Quarless Youth Jersey . Miyazato finished at 12-under 276 at wind-swept Ko Olina. She opened with rounds of 71, 65 and 70 to take a three-stroke lead in the final round. Meena Lee, ahead early on the back nine and tied for the lead after a birdie on No. 15, had a 70 to tie for second with Azahara Munoz at 8 under. Munoz finished with a 70. The 26-year-old Miyazato made a 30-foot birdie putt from the fringe on the 15th to break a tie with Lee. Lee, down one playing 18, then hit her approach into a bunker and three-putted from 30 feet for double bogey. Miyazato lost the lead with a bogey on the par-3 12th after her tee shot buried in a bunker, the second straight day she carded a 4 on the hole. But Lee dropped back moments later with a three-putt bogey at 14. After Miyazatos birdie at 15, she saved par from 8 feet at 16, then rolled in another birdie putt from 25 feet at 17 to wrap up her first victory since the Evian Masters last year in France. Miyazato won after finishing second behind top-ranked Yani Tseng this year in Thailand and Phoenix. It was Miyazatos fifth top-10 finish in six events this year, and her first victory in Hawaii in nine tries. After her father gave her a putting tip following a poor finish at the Kraft Nabisco three weeks ago, the 5-foot-1 star needed only 53 putts in the last two rounds. Tseng, a three-time winner this year, overcame an ankle injury early in the final round to shoot a 74 and tie for 10th at 4 under. She has finished in the top 10 in all seven of her LPGA Tour starts this year. Hamiltons Alena Sharp earned a top-25 finish, shooting a final round of 70 to end up tied for 25th at 1-under 287. Jessica Shepley of Oakville, Ont., (72) finished tied for 27th at even 288 and Charlottetowns Lorie Kane (75) ended up tied for 34th at 2-over 290. Davante Adams Youth Jersey . Toronto shared the American League East lead with Baltimore just over a week ago and held a six-game lead as recently as June 6. But while the Orioles have continued stringing together wins, the Blue Jays have lost six of their last seven. Andrew Quarless Jersey. Rutherford, who serves as president and general manager of the Hurricanes, told the paper on Monday that he didnt want to comment on his status with the team or any potential changes until the season is over. TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger adds that Rutherford will meet with Peter Karmanos at the end of the season before any final decision is made.LOS ANGELES - With sluggish starts costing his team two of their last three games, Dwane Casey has considered making a change to the lineup ahead of Friday nights contest against the Clippers. The Raptors have been outscored 88-66 in the opening quarter over a three-game span to begin the month of February. Their most recent loss, 109-101 in Sacramento on Wednesday, was eerily similar to Saturdays defeat at the hands of the Trail Blazers. After digging themselves an early hole on both nights, the Raptors were unable to close out late-game comeback bids, forcing Casey to question his first units disposition. "Every team has their cross to bear and ours is starting games," he said after practice Thursday afternoon. "Whether weve got to change the lineup to start the game or whatever, I dont know we have to see." "Thats been our problem and it just didnt start [in Sacramento Wednesday], its been going on for a while. Weve been able to dig out of it but you cant get hit like that and expect to bounce back that way every game, it just takes too much of a toll on your body." In many ways the Raptors have been defeating themselves. Over that three-game stretch they held opponents to 43 per cent shooting in the first quarter, an impressive mark, but the hustle stats tell a different story. Toronto was out-rebounded in the opening 12 minutes of each game and put both Portland and Sacramento on the line 12 times. "We addressed it, we talked about it," Casey said, citing his teams focus, toughness and attention to detail. If Casey does opt to shake up his starting lineup in Los Angles, even temporarily, the most likely casualty would be slumping California-native AmirJohnson. Johnson has been hampered by a sore right ankle after turning it late in last weeks win over Orlando. He has logged fewer than 20 minutes in just six games this season, yet three of those have come in the last four contests. The forward has been Torontos most reliable and valuable player over the last three years but its clear he hasnt been himself, even before his most recent injury. Morgan Burnett Jersey. After averaging 13.8 points and 8.3 rebounds on 63 per cent shooting in December, Johnsons production dropped last month, scoring 9.5 points and grabbing 6.0 rebounds a night. His 47 per cent field goal shooting in January was his lowest in a full month since March of 2011. As a team the Raptors surrendered 11 points more than they scored with Johnson on the floor in the month. Johnson, who routinely tops the team in the plus/minus stat, was the only Raptor (minimum 50 minutes) that was a net-minus in January, per NBA.com/stats. Mired in a similar slump, and with the team struggling late in November, Johnson was pulled from the starting lineup in favour of TylerHansbrough (Johnson told the Toronto Sun that he had requested a move to the bench). Johnson would go on to play his best basketball of the season over the following nine games, averaging 18.0 points and 9.6 rebounds on 68 per cent shooting, and getting his starting job back after three games when Hansbrough went down with an ankle injury. Poised to make a run at the playoffs, the Raptors need Johnson, a nine-year veteran, healthy and focused late in the season. Another temporary demotion could be in the best interest of both the Raptors and their best defensive player. Although Hansbrough could be a candidate to replace him should a change be made, without disrupting the chemistry of the second unit, he has fallen out of Caseys regular rotation since returning from injury. PatrickPatterson would seem to be the most logical choice. Often the first player of Torontos bench, Patterson has been consistently effective since coming over in the trade from Sacramento in December. The forward has scored in double figures in 12 of his last 20 games, averaging 11.1 points and 5.5 rebounds, shooting 52 per cent from the field and connecting on 17 of his 35 attempts from three-point range over that stretch. The Raptors have outscored opponents by 132 points when hes been on the floor during that span. wholesale nfl jerseys cheap jerseys from china ' ' '

EDMONTON -- The Edmonton Oilers returned to the ice Wednesday after 12 days off for the Olympic break, several of them with red faces either from sun tanning or the hard bike riding that was part of the mini training camp/conditioning session they were put through. nike free run saldi . "It feels a lot shorter than it was," said veteran defenceman AndrewFerence, who spent part of the break with his family in Canmore, Alta., visiting former Olympians Thomas Grandi and Sara Renner. "But its a really good chance to get rid of all the little aches and pains." Ference said it has to be remembered that with back-to-back condensed seasons - last year because of the lockout - players need the break both mentally and physically. "The last calendar year I think I played 110 or 120 games, so its a much welcomed break." It was a break that came with the Oilers suddenly having found their game in the midst of another disastrous, non-playoff season. They went into the Olympic break having won five of their previous seven games - one of the losses was in overtime - and outscoring their opponents 18-12. Their previous 10 games before the break - the statistic the NHL keeps - showed them at 5-3-2, a record that put them in the middle of the pack, unlike the 29th place they are in with their overall record of 20-33-7. "It is tough from that aspect," forward JordanEberle said of the untimely break. "Some of the GMs around the league have been complaining, some of the teams were going well and then you get this break. Its almost like a new season starting. "But, for me personally, I feel you get re-energized, with a little more jump and a little more excitement to play, like you did in camp. I feel really energized and ready to play." Like many of the players, Eberle took a vacation away from the game, away from Edmonton and away from winter. But not away from working out. "Yeah I went away but I definitely worked out," he added. "I knew today was going to be a tough day. It was just a bit of a skate but most of the stuff was in the gym and it was tough."

PRETORIA, South Africa - South African police photographs of the blood-spattered scene where Oscar Pistorius shot dead his girlfriend show that evidence was moved around in violation of procedure during the investigation of the killing, the athletes chief defence lawyer said Tuesday. nike air max baratas . In later testimony, a police ballistics expert police described how he tried to reconstruct the angle of the gunfire, citing tests that suggest the bullets were fired about 2.2 metres (7.2 feet) from a toilet door in Pistorius home. The bullets punctured the door, and three of them hit girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp, who was in the toilet cubicle. Warrant officer Bennie van Staden, a police photographer, took hundreds of photos of the scene, including of blood stains, bullet casings, a gun and a cricket bat found inside Pistorius bathroom in the hours after the double-amputee Olympic runner shot Steenkamp before dawn on Feb. 14 last year. Lawyer Barry Roux has challenged previous police witnesses, seeking to uncover contradictions and reported mishaps to support his argument that officers bungled the investigation, an allegation made by Pistorius at the start of the trial when he pleaded not guilty to murder in Steenkamps killing. In a painstaking process Tuesday, Roux minutely examined many photos taken by van Staden and another police officer and pointed out that objects at the crime scene had been moved and were in different positions in photos. Roux also used time of day records on the images to show that the two policemen taking photographs were in the same room at points, even though van Staden testified he was working alone. Pistorius, 27, is charged with premeditated murder for killing Steenkamp, 29. He denies murder and says he shot his girlfriend accidentally, thinking she was an intruder in a toilet cubicle in the bathroom, and says that he struck the toilet door with a cricket bat to get to Steenkamp after realizing what he had done. Prosecutors charge that Pistorius killed Steenkamp after an argument. Pistorius lawyer asked van Staden to explain differences in photographs of position of the 9 mm pistol that Pistorius used to shoot Steenkamp through a closed toilet door, and of a cricket bat that the Paralympian used to hit the door. "It seems there was movement of the bat" in the interval between two photographs taken by van Staden, Roux said. "It seems like that," van Staden conceded. The police photographer also acknowledged that two photographs of the gun indicated that a mat underneath it could have been shifted. Roux said one photo also differed from the other because it showed a wooden splinter on the gun handle. Capt. Christiaan Mangena, the police ballistics expert, said the bullets were fired at a slightly downward angle and entered the toilet door below the shoulder level of Pistorius, if he were standing without prosthetic limbs. Pistorius said he was on his stumps when he fired. Prosecutors do not dispute the assertion, after initially alleging he was on his prosthetic limbs when he killed Steenkamp. Mangena said he used thin rods and the beam from a laser mounted on a tripod to try to determine the trajectory of the bullets through the door. He also described entry and exit wounds on Steenkamps right arm and her head, and bruises on her chest where a "projectile" struck without penetrating.

"I always seem to end up pitching on my birthday," said Ross, celebrating his 25th birthday. "This was definitely a good birthday. Im kind of picking up where I left off before the injury last year." He did not pitch in the majors last season after May 20 because of a strained left oblique. "The ability is there," As manager Bob Melvin said. "He was a high pick, he has good stuff and Ive seen his confidence grow since spring training. Its a mindset that says here it comes. That shows confidence in what he has." CliffPennington had two hits and drove in two runs for the As, who ended a two-game slide and have won four of six. KurtSuzuki also drove in a run. "It was a nice day for a few of us to get going," Pennington said. "Any time you have a starting pitcher dealing like that you want to make an effort as an offence to get him the win."

TravisHafner doubled in a run for the Indians, who were trying to start the season 8-1 on the road for the first time since 1910. Hafner reached base in 11 of his 14 plate appearances in the series. "We had five leadoff walks and still couldnt do much with it," Indians manager Manny Acta said. "(Ross) kind of buckled up and made some good pitches after that and had us hitting into double plays a few times." JustinMasterson (0-2) gave up four runs on six hits over five innings annd has allowed 17 runs over his last 13 2-3 innings. adidas zx 700 preo. He walked six and struck out three. Masterson had walked six batters in his previous three starts combined. "He struggled a little bit with his command, especially with two outs," Acta said. "There were a couple of walks that he gave away with two outs that kind of hurt him." Consecutive doubles from Shin-sooChoo and Hafner gave the Indians a 1-0 edge in the first. Ross caught JackHannahan trying to steal third in the second, ending another possible threat. It was all Athletics after Pennington doubled in a run in the third to tie the score. He had two hits in his previous 24 at-bats at home. Following a walk to KilaKaaihue leading off the fourth, Smith hit his third home run in six career games against the Indians, a two-run shot that sailed into the right-field bleachers. "Home runs are always nice," Smith said. It felt good to connect."
