The Vancouver Canucks ended a lengthy losing streak in their first appearance after the Olympics. <a href="" target="_blank">Matt Miazga USA Jersey</a> . Theyll shoot for another positive result when they host the Minnesota Wild in tonights clash at Rogers Arena. The Canucks went into the NHLs Olympic break mired in an 0-7-0 slump, but halted that slide with Wednesdays 1-0 win over the visiting St. Louis Blues. It had been Vancouvers longest stretch of regulation losses since the 1998-99 season, but goaltender Eddie Lack helped snap the skid with a 20-save shutout performance. &quot;Lack was outstanding,&quot; Vancouver head coach John Tortorella said of his rookie goaltender. &quot;Key saves at key times. He calms this team down.&quot; Jannik Hansen provided the offense needed for Vancouvers recent win, scoring the games only goal late in the third period. After outshooting St. Louis 28-17 over the first 40 minutes, Vancouver finally broke the scoreless deadlock late in the third when Tom Sestito picked up the puck along the right midboards in his own zone and backhanded a beautiful outlet pass to Hansen. Hansen corralled the disc near the red line and split two defenders near the blue line before skating into the inner half of the right circle and rifling a wrister under the right arm of Jaroslav Halak to make it 1-0 at the 11:13 mark. The Canucks played Wednesdays game without forward Ryan Kesler, who is dealing with a bruised right hand. The American Olympian has been the subject of trade rumours ahead of next weeks deadline and returns to the lineup for tonights tilt. Despite the win on Wednesday, Vancouver was knocked out of a playoff position while idle on Thursday as Dallas moved into the eighth spot in the West with a win over Carolina. The Canucks are tied with Phoenix and one point back of the Stars. Lack will get another start tonight while Roberto Luongo sits this one out. Luongo won his second gold medal with Team Canada in Sochi after playing a backup role to Carey Price. Tonights test marks the final test for Vancouver before hosting Ottawa in Sundays outdoor battle at BC Place. The Wild posted a third straight win when they came back from the break to post Thursdays 3-0 victory in Edmonton. Darcy Kuemper made 21 saves for his second shutout of the season to anchor the win. Mikael Granlund, Stephane Veilleux and Dany Heatley scored for the Wild, who will aim for their first four-game winning streak since Jan. 2-9. &quot;I thought that our guys had a real good focus on defending tonight and doing it the right way,&quot; Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo said. Kuemper is expected to get the start again tonight. Niklas Backstrom is dealing with an abdominal problem at the moment, but he was able to dress as the backup on Thursday. The Wild, who are seventh in the West and six points ahead of the Canucks, are completing a two-game road trip tonight. Minnesota is 11-14-5 as the away team this season. Minnesota beat the a visiting Canucks team 3-2 in a shootout on Dec. 17, giving the Wild wins in three straight and four of the last six meetings in this series. Vancouver, however, has dominated the Wild in B.C. in recent seasons, winning 11 straight at Rogers Arena in this series before Minnesota halted that streak with a 3-1 win on March 18 of last season. <a href="" target="_blank">Clint Dempsey USA Jersey</a> . -- Chad Labelle scored the winner 17:36 into the third period to give Medicine Hat a 2-1 victory over the Swift Current Broncos on Sunday and lift the Tigers into the second round of the Western Hockey League playoffs. <a href="" target="_blank">Brek Shea USA Jersey</a> .The Knicks fell 101-91 to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, giving New York its longest in-season skid in the proud franchises 69-year history. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .

James Harden had 26 points and nine assists, Chandler Parsons scored 23 points and Houston held off Golden State 116-112 on Friday night for its second win over the Warriors in the last week. &quot;If were going to chase our goals and the dreams that we have for our season, we have to win games like tonight,&quot; said Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson, who filled in for Kevin McHale for the second game in a row following the death of the coachs mother. The Rockets, who have won 18 of the past 22 over Golden State, had every excuse to start slowly. They lost at Portland on Thursday night and landed in the Bay Area early Friday morning. Most players and coaches arrived only about an hour before the scheduled start because the final team bus was stuck in traffic getting over the bridge from San Francisco, where most visiting teams stay. Houston overcame all those obstacles and more. Howard finished with 18 points and 11 rebounds while spending most of the night in foul trouble for the Rockets, who led by 13 points late in the third quarter before the Warriors briefly rallied ahead in the fourth. Patrick Beverley scored nine of his 16 points in the final period to help Houston regain control. &quot;We were playing unselfish. We were making the extra pass. We were freeing up each other, making the game come easy,&quot; Parsons said. David Lee had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and Stephen Curry collected 20 points and nine assists for the Warriors, who outrebounded the Rockets 56-32. But Houston outshot Golden State 49.4 to 47.8 per cent and made more big plays late. The Warriors also committed 18 turnovers, while the Rockets had 15. &quot;We made too many careless, untimely turnovers when it mattered most,&quot; Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. The Warriors fell behind early again in what has become a troubling trend at home. Golden State came back from deficits of 27 and 18 points to win its previous two games at Oracle Arena over Toronto and Dallas, respectively. This time, Houston had too much for the Warriors to withstand. Golden State used a 14-2 spurt at the end of the third and start of the fourth quarters, taking an 85-84 lead on Marreese Speights layup with 8:09 remaining. The teams traded baskets in a back-andd-fourth finish -- with the Warriors outscoring Houston 39-34 in the quarter -- until the Rockets regrouped. <a href="" target="_blank">Blank USA Jersey</a>. Parsons made a reverse layup before Howard converted a three-point play after getting fouled by Lee, giving Houston a 103-98 lead with 2:15 left. Howard made all seven of his free throws. &quot;I kind of figured it was our night when D-12 knocked that 3 down from the corner and made seven straight free throws,&quot; Sampson said, referring to Howards 3-pointer in the second quarter. &quot;Im not sure hes ever done that in practice.&quot; Curry came back with a layup, then Beverley answered with a step-back shot from 21 feet to silence the crowd. Curry missed a contested 3-pointer, and Beverley made a running shot to put the game out of reach. Houston had handed Golden State its most lopsided loss of the season last week, a 105-83 rout in Texas. The rematch out west turned out to be much closer -- and far more physical. The Warriors wanted a goaltending call on Howard when he reached up and blocked Draymond Greens layup in the second quarter. As Harden dribbled down court, Green hit him in the neck with his right hand. Harden tumbled to the floor, and Green drew a flagrant foul. The sequence seemed to awaken the announced sellout crowd of 19,596, which had been booing Howard every time he touched the ball anyway. The Rockets remained in control, though, going ahead 57-44. Howard was whistled for his fifth foul with 9:55 to play in the fourth, helping the Warriors take the lead. But Houston, which shot 12 for 29 from long range, couldnt be corralled offensively. &quot;Its not good defence if they score 34 points in the quarter,&quot; said Warriors centre Andrew Bogut, who had 10 points and 11 rebounds for the Warriors. Golden State was without backup centres Jermaine ONeal (right wrist), Festus Ezeli (right knee) and Ognjen Kuzmic (right hand), who are all recovering from surgeries. Andre Iguodala also sat out his 11th straight game with a right hamstring injury. Rockets big man Omer Asik missed his fifth consecutive game with a bruised right thigh. NOTES: Bernard King, who spent two seasons with the Warriors, was honoured during a ceremony on the court between the first and second quarters for his recent induction in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. ... Howards 3-pointer in the second quarter was only the third of his career. Hes now 3 for 42 from long range. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .com) - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have dealt third-year safety Mark Barron to the St. Louis Rams prior to Tuesdays trade deadline.

Tampa Bay also traded linebacker Jonathan Casillas to New England on Tuesday for a reported fifth-round choice in next years draft.

The school did not describe any details of the investigation, including which sports were involved, but the announcement came a few hours after reported that coaches for both the mens and womens basketball programs had made more than 1,200 calls and text messages to prospects over a 29-month span dating to 2008. cited an NCAA report it had obtained. The NCAA may dole out harsher punishment that what is listed in the report, which details a number of self-imposed penalties including barring womens coach Kim Mulkey from recruiting off campus in July and fewer scholarships for both programs. Nick Joos, Baylors executive associate athletic director for external affairs, said the school had not received notice of a &quot;final decision&quot; from the infractions committee. &quot;Regarding todays premature public reports of the matter, the institution remains committed to protecting the integrity of the totality of the case in accordance with its obligations under NCAA legislation and, therefore, the university, and its officials, will make no comment,&quot; Joos said. NCAA president Mark Emmert said the NCAA would not comment on the case because its still under review. &quot;However, each member agrees to abide by the rules established by the association and our membership expects those who do not follow the rules will be held accountable,&quot; he said in a statement. The report comes as Baylor athletics is in the midst of a heyday. The Baylor women beat Notre Dame for the national title last week, capping the first 40-0 season in NCAA history. The mens team, coached by Scott Drew, won a school-record 30 games and reached an NCAA regional final, where it lost to eventual national champion Kentucky. Mulkey was named APs national coach of the year and Brittney Griner was AP national player of the year. Drews team spent much of the season in the top 10 and star quarterback Robert Griffin III became the schools first Heisman Trophy winner after leading the Bears to 10 wins for the first time since 1980. According to the summary disposition quoted by, Mulkey, Drew and their assistants were involved in sending 738 impermissible text messages and making 528 impermissible calls. The violations were termed &quot;major&quot; because of their ffrequency. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. According to the report, Griners recruitment is part of the investigation. The report said Mulkey and her staff committed minor NCAA violations for having impermissible contact with Griner and her family. During a 2007 camp, coaches spoke with the Griners about the basketball program, academic requirements and the school in general both before and after the camp. Mulkey also reportedly broke NCA rules when she sat next to Griners father and discussed what the Baylor experience would be like. Brittney Griner, who is from the Houston area, played on the same AAU team as Mulkeys daughter, Makenzie Robertson. Besides keeping Mulkey off the recruiting trail in July, Baylor said one of her assistants, Damion McKinney, has been barred from making recruiting calls since January through April. The school also reduced its womens basketball scholarships from 15 to 13 in 2011-12. reported in October 2010 that the NCAA was investigating the mens programs recruitment of Hanner Perea. The FOXSports report said assistant coach Mark Morefield sent dozens of texts to Pereas AAU and high school coaches while they were coaching events, which is against NCAA rules. The report cited Monday by said Morefield urged two AAU coaches to provide false and misleading information to the NCAA about a series of text messages -- a major violation. Morefield resigned in July 2011. Current mens assistants Paul Mills and Jerome Tang also were named in the report. The school reportedly prohibited Drew and Tang from making recruiting calls in January and February this year, and reduced the maximum number of official recruiting visits to campus from 12 to seven in 2012-13. Drew demonstrated a &quot;failure to monitor&quot; the activities of two assistant coaches and there was an overall &quot;failure to monitor&quot; by the institution, according to the report. The report also said there were 405 additional impermissible calls and text messages from nine different sports, ranging from football to the equestrian program, from January to July 2011. The NCAA violations come nine years after Baylor basketball player Patrick Dennehy was found shot to death after he had been missing for six weeks. Teammate Carlton Dotson pleaded guilty to murder. The ensuing investigation uncovered NCAA violations, illegal tuition payments and unreported failed drug tests that led to the resignation of coach Dave Bliss, who was secretly recorded by an assistant coach of trying to persuade others to cover up misdeeds by portraying Dennehy as a drug dealer. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .com) - Eric Bledsoe scored a career-high 33 points with a full line and the Phoenix Suns nearly squandered a 25-point lead before holding off the Portland Trail Blazers 118-113 on Wednesday. Isaiah Thomas shot 11-for-16 and contributed 27 points off the bench and Goran Dragic netted 16 for Phoenix, which held homecourt for the seventh straight game. Bledsoe added 10 rebounds and six assists. P.J. Tucker only scored three points in just under 34 minutes but played a crucial role in the victory, posting 13 rebounds, five assists and four steals. Nicolas Batum paced Portland with 27 points -- 10 of those coming in the fourth -- and Damian Lillard and Wesley Matthews scored 22 apiece in the setback. We did a great job fighting back and giving ourselves a chance down the stretch, Lillard said. They made some big plays at the end of the game and they did what they needed to do to pull it out. Portland was without star power forward LaMarcus Aldridge, who left Mondays win over Sacramento with a hand injury. Aldridge did not make the trip to Phoenix. The Suns led comfortably for most of the game but stumbled in the fourth quarter. A 15-point lead vanished in the frame, and Batums 3-pointer at 4:05 gave Portland its first lead since the opening quarter. Batum hit a deep 3-ball two minutes later to increase Portlands lead to five when Dragic hit a corner 3 and Bledsoe converted a three-point play to put Phoenix back in front. Thomas Robinson and Markieff Morris then traded runners and Bledsoe made four free throws in the final 10.9 seconds to secure the win. We just kept our composure and finished the game strong, Bledsoe said. Portland led 29-26 with 3:23 to play in the first quarter. The Suns scored the final 14 points of the period. Marcus Morris started the flurry with a jumper, and Thomas scored the next seven Phoenix points. Morris then hit a 3 and Thomas beat the buzzer with a short jumper, giving the Suns a 40-29 lead. The margin reached 25 points midway through the second and it was 23 with 2 1/2 minutes before halftime when four Lillard free throws highlighted a 9-0 run that had Portland within 14 at intermission. The spread remained in double figures until Portlands 10-0 run early in the fourth. Dorell Wright had seven of the 10 points on a 3-pointer and four free throws. Game Notes Phoenix has won seven straight home meetings with Portland ... Batum and Thomas both achieved season highs in scoring ... Wright and Chris Kaman scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, for Portland ... Suns reserves outscored Portlands, 54-11. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . The Brazilian-born strikers brace drew him level with Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo as the leagues leading scorers with 17 goals apiece through 16 rounds. &quot;The important thing is to help the team win, not the goals,&quot; Diego Costa said. After a first half dominated by defence, Atletico pressed Valencia into its area and Diego Costa did the rest. <a href="" target="_blank">cheapjerseyswholesale</a> . On the day Louis van Gaal announced his final 23-man squad for Brazil, the Netherlands coach looked to have picked his strongest side for the match at Feyenoords De Kuip stadium, with the vastly experienced striking partnership of Van Persie and Arjen Robben fed by playmaker Wesley Sneijder. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . &quot;When things get switched up,&quot; he said, &quot;its usually because youre losing so you never want to see those line changes made. WILLIAMSBURG, Va. -- Azahara Munoz and Austin Ernst had strong finishes Thursday to share the first-round lead in the Kingsmill Championship at 6-under 65. The former NCAA individual champions completed their morning rounds on the front nine at Kingsmills River Course, with Munoz birdieing four of her last seven holes, and Ernst closing with birdies on No. 7 and 9. &quot;I dont think its easy,&quot; Munoz said. &quot;The wind is pretty tricky, but the pins were somewhat accessible. Obviously, the course is playing is much shorter than normal because its warmer and drier. Holes I had been having 4-irons in, I was having 9-irons in today.&quot; Munoz had a bogey-free round, saving par with a 10-foot putt on the par-3 second -- her 11th hole -- after hitting into a greenside bunker. The Spaniard lost a playoff to Paula Creamer in Singapore in March when Creamer made a 75-foot eagle putt on the second extra hole. &quot;Ive been having a much better attitude,&quot; said Munoz, the 2008 NCAA winner at Arizona State who won the 2012 Match Play Championship for her lone tour title. &quot;When I miss a shot, I dont let it get to me so much like I used to. I used to get pretty upset, and that really hurt me.&quot; Ernst, the 2011 NCAA winner at LSU, rebounded from a bogey on the par-4 first with an eagle on the par-5 third, hitting a 6-iron from 182 yards to 10 feet on the downwind hole. &quot;Really just solid,&quot; Ernst said. &quot;Gave myself a lot of looks, hit a lot of greens and made it really easy on myself out there on a day when it was pretty windy and it could kind of get away from you a little bit.&quot; Heavy rain was expected overnight and Friday morning, likely delaying second-round play. &quot;Well just kind of see,&quot; Ernst said. &quot;Im kind of glad Im in the afternoon tomorrow. That way I dont have to kind of hang out. If it does get delayed, youre not waiting on the update every 30 minutes.&quot; South Koreass Hee Young Park shot 66.dddddddddddd &quot;Everything is pretty good,&quot; Park said. &quot;I made a lot more putts.&quot; Defending champion Cristie Kerr opened with a 67 after missing the pro-am Wednesday because of illness. She also won the Michelob Ultra at the course in 2005 and 2009. &quot;It was weird. I started feeling really bad Tuesday night,&quot; Kerr said. &quot;I woke up and just didnt want to get out of bed. Just kind of knew something was wrong. I just was going to stay in bed and try to recover, but my husband was like, You got to go see a doctor. So I went, and he was like, You have heat exhaustion and maybe something else going on. So they took me to the hospital and gave my IV fluids and ran some tests and I had an infection.&quot; Lexi Thompson, the Kraft Nabisco winner, also was in the group at 67 along with Lizette Salas, Brittany Lang, Kathleen Ekey, Danielle Kang and Thidapa Suwannnapura. &quot;Overall, Ill definitely take 4 under,&quot; Thompson said. &quot;I feel really good about my game right now. Ive worked extremely hard in my off-season, especially on my short game. I put a lot of hours and hard work into it. To see it paying off definitely helps my confidence out.&quot; Jessica Korda, Yani Tseng and Ai Miyazato topped the group at 68. Second-ranked Stacy Lewis and No. 3 Lydia Ko, both in position to take the top spot in the world ranking from Inbee Park, each shot 70. Lewis would jump to No. 1 with a victory or a solo second-place finish, as long as Ko doesnt win. Ko needs a victory to move to No. 1. Park is skipping the tournament. Lewis won the North Texas LPGA Shootout two weeks ago. The 17-year-old Ko is coming off a victory three weeks ago in the Swinging Skirts event in California. &quot;I think Im hitting the ball really well, which is a really good sign,&quot; Ko said. &quot;So, hopefully, I can hit like this the next couple days and get some putts going in.&quot; <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

WINNIPEG - Winnipeg Goldeyes manager Rick Forney announced today the signing of right-handed pitchers Dexter Carter and Clayton Shunick. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap nfl nike jerseys</a> . Carter, 25, played last season with Single-A Kannapolis of the South Atlantic League in the Chicago White Sox organization. He went 3-5 with a 6.65 ERA in 14 games, including 12 starts, with Kannapolis. &quot;Hes been primarily a starter in his career, but we are going to try to capture a little lightning in a bottle by using him out of the bullpen,&quot; Forney said. &quot;Were going to stick him out there an inning or two at a time and let him attack it with his two best pitches – his fastball and curveball.&quot; After being drafted by the White Sox in the 13th round (360th overall) in the 2008 MLB amateur draft, Carter was part of a package of four players that were traded on July 31, 2009 to the San Diego Padres in exchange for 2007 National League Cy Young winner Jake Peavy. Carter played the remainder of the 2009 season and the 2010 campaign in the Padres system before rejoining the White Sox organization last season after he was released by San Diego. &quot;He was a pretty good prospect at one time,&quot; Forney said. &quot;As you get older and dont make the significant strides that the organization wants you to make, sometimes other guys can pass you.&quot; Shunick, 25, split last season in the Cincinnati Reds organization between High-A Bakersfield of the California League and Double-A Carolina of the Southern League. In 31 games with Bakersfield, he went 3-3 with a 2.51 ERA and four saves. He had a 4.91 ERA and 0-1 record in nine appearances with Carolina. &quot;He changes speed and has good command,&quot; Forney said of Shunick. &quot;He has Double-A experience and is a talented guy. Were going to give him a chance to pitch out of our rotation.&quot; Shunick was drafted by the Reds in the fifth round (149th overall) in the 2008 MLB amateur draft. He was a starter for his first two professional seasons with the Reds and during his collegiate career with North Carolina State. The Goldeyes have also traded starting pitcher Isaac Hess to the Bridgeport Bluefish of the Atlantic League for future considerations and released pitchers Zach Baldwin and Aaron Hartsock and infielder Steve Singleton. Hartsock and Singleton have retired from professional baseball, while Baldwin will determine his baseball future once he has completed the university term he is currently enrolled in. The Goldeyes now have 22 players signed for the 2012 season, including 10 pitchers and 12 position players. Fans looking to purchase season tickets and nine-game mini packs for the 2012 season can call the Goldeyes office at 982-BASE (2273) or visit the Shaw Park box office. <a href="" target="_blank">cheap jerseys from china</a> . - The Tampa Bay Times is reporting Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams was stabbed in the thigh at his home and an arrest warrant has been issued for his brother. <a href="" target="_blank">cheap nfl jerseys</a> .com) - Another trip to Oakland . <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .

The world No. 1 Nadal improved to 64-1 lifetime at the French Open with a come-from-behind 4-6, 6-4, 6-0, 6-1 victory over his fifth-seeded compatriot Ferrer on Court Lenglen. The match started late in the day after a three-hour rain delay prevented the ladies from taking to the famed clay courts at Chatrier and Lenglen on Day 11. Nadals semifinal opponent on Friday will be the seventh-seeded Wimbledon champion Murray, who outlasted the 23rd-seeded Monfils 6-4, 6-1, 4-6, 1-6, 6-0 on Chatrier. After rolling past four unseeded players, Nadal faced his first big test at the 2014 French championships when he came up against the world No. 5 Ferrer. Ferrer stunned Nadal by taking the first set, but Nadal promptly rebounded to claim the second. The bout then turned into a runaway affair for the reigning champ, who also had to beat out impending darkness in Paris for his 33rd straight match win here. The 13-time Grand Slam winner captured a fourth straight French Open title and eighth overall championship here a year ago by besting Ferrer in the finale. Nadal, who turned 28 on Tuesday, is now 22-6 lifetime against the 32- year-old Ferrer, including a perfect 4-0 mark at Roland Garros. Ferrer upset Nadal on some clay in Monte Carlo back in April. The amazing Nadal is trying to become the first man to capture five straight French Open championships. The Murray-Monfils match was a see-saw affair, as the British star pounced on the Frenchman for a two-sets-to-love lead, only to see the 2008 French Open semifinalist Monfils turn thinggs around by stunningly taking sets three and four. <a href="" target="_blank">wholesale jerseys</a>. . After the fourth set, Murray sat in his chair and complained to the tournament referee about the darkening conditions at 9:20 p.m. local time, but it was decided the two men would play on. Murray appeared to struggle mightily with some sore legs in the fourth set against Monfils, but he showed no signs of problems in a lopsided fifth, which was played out in a mere 24 minutes as the stunned French faithful looked on. The 27-year-old Murray will appear in his second French Open semi. He missed the event last year due to injury. Nadal and Murray will meet for a 20th time on the ATP World Tour, with the mighty Spaniard leading their all-time series, 14-5, including a 5-0 record on clay. Nadal beat the two-time Grand Slam titlist Murray in a French Open semi three years ago. Fridays other semifinal will pit second-seeded former world No. 1 Novak Djokovic against 18th-seeded Ernests Gulbis, who will appear in his first-ever major semi. Djokovic will perform in his sixth French Open final four (1-4) and is 4-1 in his career versus Gulbis. The six-time major champion Djokovic was the French Open runner-up two years ago and still needs this title to complete a career Grand Slam. And if he wins the championship this week he would also reclaim the world No. 1 ranking. The 27-year-old Djokovic is a 22-time Grand Slam semifinalist. The 25-year-old Gulbis is currently riding a nine-match winning streak and already owns a pair of titles in France this season, including one in Nice just one day before the French Open commenced. Hes 13-0 on French soil for the year. Gulbis has not lost to a seeded player at a Grand Slam event since the 2010 Australian Open, compiling a 5-0 mark. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

In the past the expense claims for the organization garnered a lot of attention, so we wanted everybody to have that information at the same time.The expense reports, which often do not include the name of the executive making the claim, show Pan Am officials frequently charged taxpayers for their coffee, bottled water and snacks. Some also put cash advances on government credit cards, at very high interest rates.The inappropriate expenses, some going as far back as 2010, only turned up after the FOI request, and the reimbursements were made in recent weeks, said Rafi.I didnt know they existed, he said. When I saw those things, I said you know what, thats not going to stand.The Progressive Conservatives said the Liberal government has clearly not been able to change the culture of entitlement at the Pan Am organizing committee.If youre appointed to a committee by a Liberal, you can basically expense whatever you want, thats the message that I think the public is hearing now, said PC Pan Am critic Todd Smith. The scandalous spending is continuing even after the new regime has been put in place.The New Democrats said Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Liberals appeared to have learned nothing from a similar scandal involving inappropriate expenditures at eHealth Ontario, which forced then-health minister David Caplan to resign.Ontarians are footing the bill so Pan Am officials can go shopping at Harry Rosen, the LCBO or the Beer Store, said NDP PPan Am critic Paul Miller. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap nfl nike jerseys</a>. For the Liberals, to wait until the day after the legislature rises makes a mockery of transparency and accountability. It’s just absurd and manipulative.Rafi, who took over the top spot last January, rejected Opposition claims that people working with the Pan Am committee have a huge sense of entitlement.I think what were doing here is trying to instill a sense of responsibility that this is predominantly a taxpayer funded games and people have that obligation to the taxpayer, he said. We are trying to continue with being open and transparent and make sure people follow the rules.Its not the first time expenses by the Pan Am executives have come under fire.Former CEO Ian Troop, who was paid $477,000 a year, was criticized after he billed taxpayers 91 cents for parking, $1.89 for a cup of tea and $8,561.19 for a Mexican hotel and cocktail party.The opposition parties also complained about a $7-million bonus package for TO2015 executives, including Troop, who would have been eligible for a $780,000 premium if hed stayed and the Games came in on budget.Ontario taxpayers already shelled out over a million dollars to fired Pan Am executives, including a years pay and $27,300 in retirement benefits for Troop, who also got $10,000 in outplacement payments, $3,500 in legal fees and medical benefits of $15,800.Former Pan Am vice-president of human resources, Elaine Roper, was paid $300,000 when she was let go, while Louise Lutgen got $271,000 after she was dismissed as the vice-president of cultural affairs.The Progressive Conservatives said the latest round of expenses showed the Pan Am committee spent $5,800 on tickets to the PGAs golf championship, and $8,200 on tickets to Toronto Argonauts CFL games.TO 2015 is probably the perfect example where this type of behaviour has continued over a four-year period and doesnt seem to be stopping any time soon, said Smith.The total budget for the Pan Am Games, which will be held in communities across southern Ontario next summer, is about $2.5 billion.Follow @CPnewsboy on Twitter <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

ZURICH, Switzerland -- It will be Cristiano Ronaldo vs. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> . Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a place at the World Cup. Portugal and Sweden were the first two teams drawn by FIFA on Monday for the European playoffs, though the pairing was talked about as a clash of superstar forwards in a two-leg series scheduled for Nov. 15 and 19. &quot;World-class players like Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic, they do something extra to change the game,&quot; Sweden coach Erik Hamren said. &quot;I am pleased we have one, too. But we need our team to be really good.&quot; Also, France will play Ukraine, with the return game in Paris; Greece was paired with Romania; and Iceland, the lowest ranked of the eight teams at No. 46 in the world, will host the first leg against Croatia, which fired its coach last week. The four winners will complete Europes 13 entries in the 32-team World Cup draw on Dec. 6 in Salvador, Brazil. Ronaldo and Ibrahimovic were consigned to the playoffs after their teams finished second in their qualifying groups behind Russia and Germany, respectively. &quot;They will be evenly balanced and very competitive games,&quot; Portugal coach Paulo Bento said. &quot;Ibrahimovic is an imposing figure, but the Swedes are more than that, they are good collectively.&quot; Portugal also had to advance to the 2010 World Cup through a playoff, after twice drawing 0-0 with Sweden in the group. France, the 2006 World Cup runner-up, also makes its second straight trip to the playoffs after defending champion Spain won its group. Four years ago, a notorious handball by Thierry Henry helped France beat Ireland in extra time. &quot;(Ukraine) dont concede many goals and it will be a long away trip for us,&quot; France coach Didier Deschamps said. &quot;But to have the return leg at home is a good thing.&quot; France and Ukraine last met in a 2012 European Championship match which was delayed several minutes after kick off by a torrential rain storm in Donetsk. France eventually won 2-0. Iceland, which has a population of about 315,000, is looking to become the smallest country ever to play at the World Cup. That record is held by 2006 qualifier Trinidad and Tobago, which had about 1.2 million. Though Iceland lacks the recent pedigree of Croatia, the 1998 semifinalist, the pairing pits a veteran coach against a novice. Iceland coach Lars Lagerback will be trying to reach his fourth straight World Cup with a third different team. He coached his native Sweden at the 2002 and 2006 tournaments, and Nigeria in 2010. Croatias playoff matches mark the coaching debut of 42-year-old Niko Kovac, who stepped up from the under-21 team to replace Igor Stimac, who was fired after poor results. &quot;I met Niko a little when he took his (coaching) license,&quot; Lagerback said. &quot;He looks like a clever guy.&quot; Kovac said he &quot;did not expect this situation&quot; and will work alongside his brother, Robert, another former World Cup stalwart for Croatia. &quot;With him I am never afraid,&quot; said Kovac, who will be focusing on teamwork. &quot;There was no team on the pitch. We have some good players but everyone working for himself.&quot; Greece coach Fernando Santos said he would have preferred to play the first match in Romania. &quot;My message to the fans is that they should believe in the national team, go to the stadium, fill it, and put pressure on our opponents,&quot; Santos said. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .ca.

To baseball players, he was the spirit of the game.His teammates loved him, and his list of admirers included President Barack Obama to Pearl Jam to athletes from all over the sports world.MONTREAL -- There was something familiar about the way coach Mike Babcocks Detroit Red Wings checking smothered the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. It was almost exactly like the way Babcocks Team Canada won gold at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The result was a 2-1 Red Wings victory on Swedish Olympian Gustav Nyquists rebound goal with 28 seconds left in overtime. &quot;(Babcock) always stressed that we play this way,&quot; said Johan Franzen, who returned from a concussion to assist on both Detroit goals. &quot;This is how you win games. &quot;Especially coming down the stretch here and going into the playoffs, this is how you have to play hockey. Youve got to track like never before, and always be above their guys and make it small for them so you can create turnovers. Then you give your team a lot of opportunities.&quot; Franzen set up a power-play goal 14:01 into the first period by Todd Bertuzzi for Detroit (27-20-12). Captain Brian Gionta scored for Montreal (32-21-7) with 29 seconds left in regulation time after goalie Peter Budaj was pulled for an extra attacker. Babcocks defence-first style helped Canada go 6-0 at the Olympics, surrendering only three goals along the way. Giontas goal was the first against a Babcock-coached team since Lauris Darzins got one at 15:41 of the first period of Canadas 2-1 quarter-final win over Latvia. Canada shut out the United States 1-0 in the semifinals and then topped Sweden 3-0 in the final on Sunday. &quot;Its tough to compare,&quot; said Nyquist. &quot;Its a different style of game on a smaller rink here. &quot;It was an adjustment for a few guys out there. But it was nice to get the win.&quot; There were a handful of Olympians of both sides who had trickled back over the past week as their teams were eliminated. It made for slow, scrambling hockey with few good scoring chances on either side. Detroit had a 30-20 shot advantage, and fans booed as Montreal tested Jimmy Howard only twice in the second frame. &quot;Im sure guys noticed the time differencce a bit,&quot; said Nyquist. <a href="" target="_blank"></a>. &quot;You have to battle through it. &quot;It was the middle of the night in Sochi, but weve been back for three days and were starting to get it back. Well get some sleep before we play in Ottawa (on Thursday night).&quot; The Canadiens salvaged a point when Gionta collected a puck at the side of the net in a scramble and backhanded the tying goal into a top corner. &quot;The execution was not there tonight for both teams,&quot; said Montreal coach Michel Therrien. &quot;Both teams played solid defensively. &quot;There wasnt much space on the ice. But we put ourselves in position to get a point. Its disappointing that we didnt score in overtime or get to the shootout.&quot; Franzen fed Bertuzzi at the edge of the crease for a power-play goal 14:01 into the game after Canadian Olympian P.K. Subban was called for roughing. Bertuzzi returned to the lineup after missing eight games with an upper-body problem. Franzen had sat out six in a row and 21 of the last 22 with his concussion, but said he felt fine after the game. In overtime, Franzen tipped a Danny DeKeyser shot and the rebound went to Nyquist for a shot into an open side. Budaj had been slated to start in goal for Montreal even before Canadian Olympian Carey Price suffered a lower-body injury during the teams game-day skate. He is to start again when Montreal visits Pittsburgh on Thursday night. The 21,273 at the Bell Centre gave a rousing ovation to 12 members of Canadian mens and womens hockey gold medallist teams from the Sochi Olympics in a pre-game ceremony. The biggest cheers went to Marie-Philip Poulin, who had two goals in the womens final, and to Babcock and Canadiens players Price and Subban. Notes: Canadiens Alex Galchenyuk and Travis Moen returned from injuries, but Michael Bournival and Brandon Prust remain sidelined. Goaltender Dustin Tokarski was recalled from AHL Hamilton. . . The Red Wings played the 3,000th road game of their history. They are 1,086-1,439-475 away from Detroit. <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

(SportsNetwork. <a href="" target="_blank">Custom Buffalo Sabres Jersey</a> .com) - The New York Rangers will try to sweep their season series against the Detroit Red Wings when the Original Six rivals battle on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden. Watch the Rangers vs. Red Wings live on TSN2 at 12:30pm et/9:30am pt. The Rangers have won three straight over the Red Wings following a five-game slide in the series. New York is 2-0 against Detroit this season, posting a road overtime decision on Oct. 26 before picking up a 1-0 regulation win at the Garden on Jan. 16. Henrik Lundqvist recorded the shutout on Jan. 16 after making 38 saves for the Rangers. The Swedish netminder expects to get the start on Sunday and is 2-3-1 with a 2.66 goals against average in six career games against the Red Wings.

New York enters Sundays battle as the third-place team in the Metropolitan Division and is one point in back of Philadelphia for second place. The top three teams in each division earn an automatic bid to the playoffs. Detroit, meanwhile, is currently tied with Columbus for the last of the Eastern Conferences eight playoff seeds, With the Blue Jackets idle on Sunday, the Red Wings have a chance to take sole possession of the second wild card spot. The Rangers and Red Wings both are coming off victories on Friday night. New York posted a 4-2 win at Carolina, while Detroit slammed the visiting New Jersey Devils by a 7-4 score. The Blueshirts halted a three-game slide with their win in Raleigh. Derek Stepans power-play goal with 2:46 remaining highlighted a third-period rally that lifted New York to the 4-2 decision over the Hurricanes at PNC Arena. All four New York scores came in the final 12:35 of play, with the newly acquired Martin St. Louis setting up Stepans tally on a 5-on-3 power play that snapped a 2-2 deadlock. The assisted marked the first point for St. Louis in two games with the Rangers since he was acquired Wednesday in the deal that Ryan Callahan to Tampa. &quot;He made a nice pass,&quot; Rangers head coach Alain Vigneault said of St. Louis. &quot;(The power play) is something that we havent practiced since Martys been with us, but he did a good job of explaining what we were looking for and he made a great play.&quot; Both Stepan and Rick Nash finished with a goal and an assist in the Rangers 10th straight win over Carolina, with Ryan McDonagh adding a shorthanded marker and Carl Hagelin sealing the outcome with an empty netter. Lundqvist posted 22 saves to pick up the win, his first in four outings since helping Team Sweden pick up a silver medal last month at the Sochi Olympics. After todays tilt in Manhattan, the Rangers will play three straight and six of their next seven games on the road. New York is 15-15-4 as the host this season and 19-11-0 as the guest. Detroit had lost two in a row before routing the Devils on Friday. Johan Franzen had two goals and two assists to help the Red Wings notch the 7-4 victory. Gustav Nyquist posted a goal and three assists and David Legwand had a goal and two assists for the Red Wings. Jonas Gustavsson made 21 stops in the win. &quot;The guys kept putting in all their chances they were getting and that gave us a lot of energy,&quot; said Gustavsson. &quot;Its not every night you score seven goals, but it was fun for the crowd.&quot; Legwand registered a three-point night in his second game with the Red Wings. The veteran forward was acquired from Nashville on Wednesday for forward Patrick Eaves, a conditional third-round pick and forward prospect Calle Jarnkrok. The 33-year-old Legwand, a native of the Detroit area, skated on the Red Wings top line with Franzen and Nyquist &quot;Obviously two great players, world-class players. Its an honor to play with them and we had the puck tonight, we were moving it and I think obviously when you can move and skate its going to create some chances and opportunities,&quot; said Legwand, who was named the games first star. The Red Wings are playing two straight and three of their next four tests on the road. Detroit is 17-10-4 as the visiting team this season, but has lost two straight and three of its last five games in NYC. <a href="" target="_blank">Rick Martin Jersey</a> . Byfuglien, who was moved to forward from defence earlier this month but sometimes plays both positions in a game, scored the winner in a 5-4 overtime victory against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday. <a href="" target="_blank">Jack Eichel Jersey</a> . &quot;We need to make sure that were bulletproof,&quot; Rosberg said after Daniel Ricciardo passed the hobbled Silver Arrow with two laps to go to win the Canadian Grand Prix on Sunday. &quot;Having lost the win, thats very, very disappointing, definitely, and also disappointing for us as a team. <a href="" target="_blank"></a> .Rooney was set up well by his teammates for both goals as Radamel Falcao met a long cross into the area in the 23rd minute, sliding to reach the ball at the far post and square a perfect pass for Rooney to tap into an empty net.LONDON -- Per Mertesackers header gave Germany a 1-0 victory over England on Tuesday, sending its fierce rival to back-to-back home losses for the first time in 36 years. Captaining Germany in London, Mertesacker powered in the only goal of the Wembley Stadium friendly after meeting a cross from Toni Kroos in the 36th minute. &quot;The fact that weve won here at Wembley this time-honoured place is a joy for us,&quot; Germany coach Joachim Loew said through a translator. While Germany deployed a second-string squad -- and took control after taking the lead -- England started with a strong lineup that couldnt get a shot on target or prevent boos ringing out around the venue at the final whistle for the second time in four days here. England, which was beaten 2-0 by Chile on Friday, has now lost consecutive matches at Wembley for the first time since defeats to Wales and Scotland in 1977. The closest Roy Hodgsons team came to an equalizer was when Andros Townsend struck the post from a long-range strike on a night when Germany goalkeeper Roman Weidenfeller had little to do. Germany fans celebrated the win by singing -- in English -- &quot;Footballs coming home&quot; -- taken from the England anthem &quot;Three Lions.&quot; It was a miserable way for the English Football Association to round out its 150th anniversary celebrations in front of a 85,934-strong crowd, with Germany exposing the hosts technical deficiencies. &quot;It was a harsh defeat but we needed better quality,&quot; Hodgson said. &quot;The effort, the work rate and desire, I cant fault at all. But in the time we had the ball in the German half, we werent as efficient as the Germans were when they had the ball in our half. &quot;The quality of our passing and shooting was not as good as the Germans.&quot; England, which beat Germany here in the 1966 World Cup final, was only spared a heavier defeat against a fellow Brazil 2014 qualifier by Joe Harts saves. The Manchester City goalkeeper, who was rested in the Chile friendly, provided a remindder of his abilities three weeks after being dropped by his club following a series of blunders. <a href="" target="_blank">Rick Martin Sabres Jersey</a>. A minute before Mertesacker scored his fourth international goal, Hart pulled off a one-handed save to thwart another header from the defender. &quot;We knew set-pieces would be a danger, they had some big players and we were a small team tonight,&quot; Hodgson said. Hart wasnt at fault for the goal, with England too porous as Mertesacker evaded Wayne Rooney and Chris Smalling to head home. &quot;Per definitely organized our defence -- he has turned out to be a pillar of strength -- literally speaking in terms of his height,&quot; Loew said, praising Mertesackers agility and ball distribution. He helped to ensure England was largely restricted to striking from distance, with captain Steven Gerrard sending the ball onto the roof of the net just before half time. Four minutes into the second half, a fine save from Hart kept out Marco Reus fierce strike after Mario Gotze skipped through the home defence with ease. Mertesacker was left in space again to try again with his head, but nodded over from a corner, while a low save from Hart pushed away Gotzes effort. &quot;I was annoyed at times because we really squandered our chances -- many of them -- when we should have extended our lead much earlier,&quot; Loew said. &quot;Especially when England were open in defence, we should have scored that second goal.&quot; There were eight changes from the Germany lineup which drew with Italy on Friday as Loew took the friendly as the last chance to experiment, with big names including Bastian Schweinsteiger, Mesut Ozil and captain Philipp Lahm absent. But the international year ahead of the World Cup ended for Germany just as it had begun against France -- with an away win. &quot;I can approach 2014 with a sense of quiet confidence,&quot; Loew said. &quot;Many of the players who I wanted to test here today can be proud to have withstood the pressure of playing against such a great crowd.&quot; <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap China Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys From China</a> <a href="" target="_blank">China NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> <a href="" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys China</a> ' ' '

OAKLAND, Calif. <a href="" target="_blank">Martin Jones Jersey</a> . -- Stephen Curry erased a forgettable first half for the Golden State Warriors with a fourth quarter to remember. Curry made a pull-up jumper with 3 seconds remaining to cap a sensational finishing stretch, rallying the Warriors from 18 points down to beat the Dallas Mavericks 95-93 on Wednesday night. &quot;Hes a great player and an all-time great shooter,&quot; Warriors coach Mark Jackson said. &quot;Ive seen Steph Curry every single day take that shot hundreds and hundreds of times, thousands of times, so when the curtains open up you expect it to go in.&quot; Curry scored 16 of his 33 points in the final period. He finished with 10 assists, four rebounds and another big shot in a young career already full of them. With the clock winding down, Curry dribbled on the perimeter, came off a screen and faked a shot to send Shawn Marion jumping past him. Curry then hit the 19-footer to give Golden State, which trailed by 18 points late in the second quarter, the lead for good. &quot;I kind of lulled him to sleep with the pump fake and thankfully it went in,&quot; said Curry, who couldnt recall making a game-winning shot since high school. &quot;We blew everybody out at Davidson, so we didnt need game-winners,&quot; he joked about his college career. Harrison Barnes scored 17 points, David Lee added 15 points and 11 rebounds, and Andrew Bogut grabbed a season-high 18 rebounds to help the Warriors overcome 18 turnovers and a sloppy start. Monta Ellis and Dirk Nowitzki each scored 21 points, and Jose Calderon had 18 for the Mavericks, who had no timeouts left and were forced to heave a desperation shot at the buzzer. Dallas finished 2-2 on its road trip because it couldnt corral Curry when it mattered most. &quot;When they made shots and the crowd got into it, this is kind of a hostile environment,&quot; said Ellis, a former Warriors fan favourite who was traded to Milwaukee for Bogut two seasons ago. Curry made consecutive 3-pointers to tie the game at 82 midway through the fourth quarter. Nowitzki scored the next four points before Currys pull-up jumper. Ellis answered with a pair of key scores late, including a layup through traffic that gave the Mavericks a 92-86 lead. Curry came back with a four-point play, getting fouled by Calderon as he made a 3 and then hitting the free throw. After another defensive stop, reserve Draymond Green made a 3-pointer with 49.9 seconds to play that put the Warriors up 93-92 -- their first lead since the opening quarter. Ellis made one of two free throws to tie the game. After Curry and Ellis each missed shots, Curry came off a screen and juked Marion to make the biggest play of the night. &quot;I thought we played Curry decently,&quot; Nowitzki said. &quot;Marion was on him. Probably been our best perimeter defender for a long time and thats a matchup we like. Curry just got him up in the air. Its a tough play. Stepped under him and made a tough shot.&quot; The Warriors played seven of their previous eight on the road, going 4-4 during that stretch. They opened a string of seven of the next nine at home, returning to Oracle Arena short-handed. Andre Iguodala missed his 10th straight game with what the team has called a strained left hamstring. And backup centre Jermaine ONeal sat out with a right wrist injury. Dallas started the game determined to end its road trip on a winning note. Calderon, Ellis and Nowitzki directed Dallas to big leads throughout the first half. Nowitzki capped the spurt by making a pair of high-arching 3s to put the Mavericks ahead 52-34 late in the second quarter. Curry pumped some life into the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 when he made a 3-pointer that twice bounced on the rim and the backboard before it dropped. The shot sliced Dallas lead to six, and the Mavericks closed the third quarter ahead just 72-66 despite controlling most of the game. &quot;We have to stop. We cant continue to get behind like that and continue to try and come back and win,&quot; Green said. &quot;But once again, our crowd helped us get back into the game.&quot; NOTES: ONeal is deciding whether to have surgery, which will likely end his season, or wait to see if his wrist heals enough for him to play. ... Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said G Devin Harris, who is recovering from a foot injury, had some swelling in his left big toe after practicing during the road trip. Harris had hoped to return in mid-December but likely wont play until after Christmas. ...

And he promptly missed the birdie putt on the par-5 sixth hole.

Short is attempting to become the 17th player to win in his Champions Tour debut. Defending champion Rocco Mediate shot a 69.
