The cause of his death is as of yet undetermined, but police said foul play is not suspected.ST. LOUIS -- The St. Louis Blues won a franchise record 52 games this season and general manager Doug Armstrong cant help but sum it up as a disappointment. &quot;Were in the winning business and were not winning at the appropriate time of the year,&quot; Armstrong said Tuesday. &quot;We have to fix that.&quot; The past two playoffs have been a carbon copy for the Blues. In 2013, St. Louis won the first two games against Los Angeles at home and then dropped the next four to the then-defending Stanley Cup champions. This season, St. Louis got the jump on defending Stanley Cup champion Chicago, then again lost four straight to end the season. Armstrong said that this years loss to the Blackhawks was worse. &quot;I felt last year that we were coming off of a year where no one expected us to be good the year before and we wanted to prove that we were a good team,&quot; Armstrong said. &quot;I expected us to take it to a higher level this year and the higher level was going to be a consistent regular season followed by a longer playoff run. So, this year, theres a true sense that we have squandered an opportunity and opportunities dont come a lot in this league.&quot; While the Blues have been one of the best teams each of the past three regular seasons -- St. Louis had 60 points in a lockout shortened 2012-13 campaign and 109 points in 2011-12 -- it has been a different story in April. Armstrong and coach Ken Hitchcock said that the Blues need to develop a killer instinct if they are to get over their post-season hump. &quot;We werent able to create the gap in Games 3 and 4 and win on the road, which you have to do in the playoffs,&quot; Hitchcock said. &quot;Thats the killer instinct that you need to have. We werent able to do it in either series, aand it hurts. <a href="http://www.sunsofficialshop.us/kevin-johnson-suns-jersey/" target="_blank">Kevin Johnson Jersey</a>. &quot;Thats everyones responsibility. Mine, Dougs, the players, other coaches, everybody. Thats the part that hurts. We couldnt apply the killer instinct in Games 3 and 4 when we needed to in both years.&quot; Several players have been a part of the past three seasons, and figure to be part of the puzzle moving forward: forwards T.J. Oshie, Alexander Steen and David Backes, and defenceman Kevin Shattenkirk and Alex Pietrangelo. Armstrong said it his responsibility to see if this core group can get to a new level or whether changes are needed. &quot;I look at the regular season success this team has had over the last three years,&quot; Armstrong said &quot;I think our point total is probably in the top three or four in the NHL over that time frame. So, were doing some things correctly. But were not doing enough correctly to win in April, May and June. Quite honestly, I got to quit worrying about May. We got to get out of April first and were not doing that.&quot; One area that will need to be addressed is goaltending. The Blues thought they had added the final piece when the traded for Ryan Miller just before the deadline. But Miller, who is a free agent, allowed 19 goals against the Blackhawks and his save percentage was just .897. Armstrong said that Jake Allen, who had another strong year in the American Hockey League, will be one of the teams net minders. Who the will partner with Allen is up in the air. &quot;Its a two-way street with Ryan right now,&quot; Armstrong said. &quot;He has opportunities. I want to sit and talk with him and get his feelings about our organization. See where he thinks were at, see if he even has any interest in being a St. Louis Blue.&quot; <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysmorewholesae.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.supplystitchedjerseys.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysnflwholesale.org/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapauthenticjerseysnflchina.net/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="https://www.wholesalejerseysfreest.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysusaauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="https://www.cheapjerseysfreest.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

(SportsNetwork. <a href="http://www.jerseyhockeycapitalsstore.com/authentic-nicklas-backstrom-capitals-jersey-sale/" target="_blank">Nicklas Backstrom Jersey</a> .com) - The Phoenix Suns are clicking on all cylinders and will continue a four-game road trip Sunday night against the Los Angeles Lakers at Staples Center. The Suns have won five in a row after losing six straight and opened the road trip with Fridays 115-106 win at Sacramento. Suns reserve Isaiah Thomas scored 17 points in his return to Sacramento and posted eight points during a 16-2 second-half run that lifted Phoenix to a season-high fifth straight win. Marcus Morris also had a big night for the Suns, hitting 6-of-7 attempts from 3-point range to finish with 20 points. Eric Bledsoe and Markieff Morris contributed 18 and 17 points, respectively, while Goran Dragic had 16 along with six assists. We got a big lift from Marcus, Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said. When we are making the shots, were getting good looks. Phoenix has won four in a row on the road and is 10-7 away from the desert. It will also visit New Orleans and Oklahoma City on the trek. The Lakers have lost two in a row and five of their last six games, including Fridays 102-98 setback at Dallas. Carlos Boozer scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds for Los Angeles, which played without Kobe Bryant for a third straight game. Nick Young totaled 15 points with Jordan Hill and Wayne Ellington adding 12 points apiece. What have I learned? That we would love to have him in the lineup, Lakers coach Byron Scott said of Bryants absence. I think these three games prove that we do need him on the floor. Bryant has been dealing with soreness and is listed as probable Sunday. He is averaging 24.6 ppg this season. The Lakers are 4-10 at home and have lost the first two meetings with the Suns this season. The Pacific rivals will meet again Jan. 19 in Phoenix. The Suns have won nine of the past 12 meetings with LA, but are only 3-10 in the past 13 games as the guest in this series. <a href="http://www.jerseyhockeycapitalsstore.com/authentic-ilya-samsonov-capitals-jersey-sale/" target="_blank">Ilya Samsonov Jersey</a> .

MINSK, Belarus - Thats more of what everyone expected from Team Canada. <a href="http://www.nbanetsauthority.com/rondae-hollis-jefferson-nets-jersey-c-9/" target="_blank">Rondae Hollis-Jefferson Jersey</a> . Not just the three goals in seven minutes in the third period, but a better effort in a 4-1 victory over Slovakia on Saturday at the world hockey championship than Canada showed in a stunning shootout loss to France. &quot;Our team was much better tonight than it was last night for longer periods of time,&quot; coach Dave Tippett said. &quot;We were harder on the forecheck, harder at the net. ... We put a lot of pressure on that veteran group today to make sure this gets done tonight and thats why its good to see the guys do it.&quot; That veteran group was led by Joel Ward, who scored twice, and Cody Hodgson and Kevin Bieksa, who each scored once in a game that was tied 1-1 until early in the third period. Those players arent seasoned internationally, but theyve been part of plenty of NHL games and came up big when Canada was in danger of losing two straight to start this tournament for the first time since pro players started going in 1977. A lack of familiarity between teammates contributed to the loss in the opener and there was some disjointed play early on against Slovakia. But Hodgson doesnt think that should be an excuse or that the expectations should be lowered for this Team Canada. &quot;Its not something that were used to, losing, especially early on,&quot; he said. &quot;Were Canadian hockey players and thats what we were born to do. It shouldnt take too long to get accustomed to each other.&quot; It will take some more time before things are perfect on that front, but its a process that will continue with Mondays game against the Czech Republic and beyond. Tippett sees improvement shift-by-shift. &quot;The players, youre starting to find rhythms, find roles,&quot; he said. &quot;They know when theyre going out there, they know situations that they play in. So they get more comfortable, they get more comfortable with the team game.&quot; One way to make Canadas team game work is to simply play five-on-five. Through two games, this team hasnt given up a goal at even strength, but after bad penalties against France, another parade to the penalty box led to Karol Slobodas power-play goal at 12:24 of the second period. Canada took three penalties in the second period, which was again problematic. &quot;Its definitely a different game,&quot; Ward said. &quot;It took us adjusting for sure. Its a different style. Were not used to the wide rink.&quot; What Canadian hockey players are used to doing on the international stage is putting up goals in bunches. Ward tied the score at 1 at the 17:24 mark of the second by tipping Jason Garrisons shot past Czech goaltender Jan Laco, and his first goal in a Team Canada jersey provided a spark. Hodgson scored what turned out to be the game-winner 7:07 into the third period, taking a pass from Nazem Kadri and beating Laco with a perfect shot from between the faceoff circles. Bieksa piled on with a goal that tipped up and over Laco and in at 17:56, then Ward put the icing on at 18:49. &quot;I think we started to get a few bounces,&quot; Tippett said. &quot;We had some great chances early, didnt capitalize. Its nice to see things even out in the end. It gives players confidence. Everybody worked hard tonight. Its good to see players get rewarded, even though it was late.&quot; It took until the third period before this Team Canada could breathe easy, but once Laco started wearing down and goaltender Ben Scrivens stayed strong in making 23 saves on 24 shots, the floodgates opened to make it look like more of a lopsided game than it really was. &quot;I dont think were going to blow teams out,&quot; Scrivens said. &quot;This was a tighter game than the score showed, but we stuck with it and thats what were going to have to do all tournament, I think.&quot; By the end, Canada was having fun after a night in which it dealt with plenty of jeers from a mostly pro-Slovak crowd at Chizhovka-Arena. &quot;Any time youre winning, its always a good time,&quot; Ward said. &quot;Regardless if youre up by one or two or four, youre excited to be winning.&quot; NOTES — Scrivens started the second game of the tournament as planned after James Reimer played against France based on seniority. ... Sean Monahan played more in the first two periods than he did the entire game against France as he split time with Mark Scheifele as the fourth-line centre.

PAUL, Minn.TORONTO -- For the second time in as many games, a big fourth quarter saved the day for Canada. While Brady Heslip broke the game open in Thursdays victory over Jamaica, Andy Rautins got in on the action Saturday, scoring eight of his 11 points in the final quarter. Rautins came up big as Canada stormed back from a 17-point deficit to defeat Jamaica 77-72 and complete a sweep of the Jack Donohue International Classic. &quot;As a leader on the team, as an older veteran a guy on the team, thats the role I need to play,&quot; Rautins said. &quot;To bring that energy, to bring that shooting. Thats what we did tonight and we gutted it out and got a great win.&quot; Desperate for scoring in the fourth quarter, head coach Jay Triano paired Rautins with Brady Heslip in hopes of stretching the floor with two shooters in the lineup. It paid off. &quot;Andys a scorer and we needed points,&quot; Triano said. &quot;We had planned before this game on not playing him in the first half, we needed to look at other guys, but in the second half we knew that if they played zone wed need those two guys.&quot; Playing without Samardo Samuels, who missed the game with a tweaked hamstring, Jamaica looked like a different team than Thursdays iteration. The visitors connected from beyond the arc early and exposed Canadas lack of shooters on the floor. Leading 26-25 after the opening quarter, Jamaica stretched its lead to 49-37 at the half after making eight of 11 attempts from deep before halftime. &quot;I give them a lot of credit, they shot the ball extremely welll in the first half,&quot; Triano said. <a href="http://www.nbanetsauthority.com/caris-levert-nets-jersey-c-15/" target="_blank">Caris LeVert Jersey</a>. &quot;Our defence held them to nine 1/8points 3/8 in the fourth quarter. We clamped down at the end when we had to and thats what were trying to do, we just need to do it from the beginning of the game.&quot; Veterans Levon Kendall and Jermaine Anderson helped Canada trim the deficit to nine at the end of three quarters. Thompson, who plays for the Cleveland Cavaliers and was named player of the game, scored his 16 points on 6-for-11 shooting. He also had 10 rebounds. &quot;Its huge,&quot; Rautins said of Thompsons impact. &quot;Offensive rebounding is huge for him. Its what he does. He makes a lot of money doing that. Were going to need him to do that for us game in and game out. Hes done a great job of improving his hook game. Even switching to his right hand, hes still knocking down shots.&quot; The game was intense from the opening tip and players let the officials know their thoughts on the non-calls as the game wore on. While it is an adjustment for NBA players like Thompson, Cory Joseph and Andrew Nicholson to get used to the officiating in the international game, veterans with experience abroad spent their time on the sidelines encouraging their teammates from the bench. &quot;Having played in the NBA, having played overseas, its like a different world,&quot; Rautins explained. &quot;The international game, its like another world. Its almost like a rugby match out there.&quot; Patrick Ewing Jr. led the way for Jamaica, scoring a game-high 20 points in the loss. <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysmorewholesae.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.supplystitchedjerseys.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysnflwholesale.org/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapauthenticjerseysnflchina.net/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="https://www.wholesalejerseysfreest.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysusaauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="https://www.cheapjerseysfreest.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

TORONTO – It took less than a week for life to sour for the Maple Leafs. <a href="http://www.authenticjetsfanatic.com/c-69-jets-brent-qvale-jersey.aspx" target="_blank">Brent Qvale Jersey</a> . Six days after rallying for perhaps their finest win of the season in the sunshine of L.A. – and second in the challenging California triangle – did they drop their third straight game Wednesday, sullied by the hat trick of Steven Stamkos in what proved a dour night at the ACC. &quot;Obviously we havent played as well as we need to,&quot; said head coach Randy Carlyle following the 5-3 defeat. &quot;And were not sitting here saying that were playing the type of hockey that is required to have success. Is it a trend? Well we lost three games in a row. If we show the desperation that we displayed in the last half of the game for 60 minutes we surely could improve our chances, thats for sure.&quot; With the loss – their fourth in the past five games – Toronto fell three points back of Tampa for second spot in the Atlantic with another key division match looming on Saturday with Montreal in town. Once in fine shape to make it back to the playoffs for a second straight spring, the Leafs are skidding at the wrong time and hurting those chances. They still hold the first wild card position (80 points), but have ceded ground to the Blue Jackets (76 points), Capitals (76), and Red Wings (75) – all have games in hand – also failing to keep pace with the Lightning (83) and Canadiens (83). Still struggling to defend, the Leafs have not had the brilliance of Jonathan Bernier to lean on during this recent three-game slide, nor have they been able to outscore opponents on the strength of their top line, a source of success in many victories this season. With 11 games still remaining they certainly have time to veer back in the right direction. &quot;No sense in panicking,&quot; concluded James Reimer following the latest loss. Yielding the first goal for the fifth consecutive game on this night, the Leafs started sluggishly in their first game back from a lengthy five-game road trip, running around in the defensive zone. By the end of 20 minutes they were down 3-2 on a pair from Stamkos, also reeling from the scary loss of Paul Ranger (more on that in Five Points). &quot;Weve had a trend over the last three games where we seem like were starting a little sluggish,&quot; said Mason Raymond afterward. &quot;Were not getting the exact start that were wanting. I think later in the game we showed that desperation, but we need that for 60 minutes.&quot; Peppering 22 shots at Ben Bishop in the final frame – even pulling to within one on another goal from Jake Gardiner – Toronto made a late push, but like recent comeback efforts in Washington and Detroit, they ultimately fell short. Unhappy with a schedule that saw his team return from 10 days on the road only to host Tampa on the second end of a back-to-back – they lost to the Red Wings on Tuesday – Carlyle felt fatigue was an issue. &quot;Its not an excuse,&quot; he said. &quot;But its a trying situation. Its not easy. And you could definitely tell that they had more jump than we did, specifically at the beginning. But we started to play a lot more desperate and we showed that we have more in the tank. Its just that we had to run on some emotion. We didnt have that emotion in the first half of the game and we developed it in the second half of the game and thats the positive part.&quot; Five Points 1. Reimers Response Reimer returned to the net less than 24 hours after his performance in Detroit was criticized by Carlyle. His night started just as poorly as the night previous had ended, with Radko Gudas sailing a point shot through a maze of traffic and beyond the surprised 26-year-old. &quot;I just didnt see the puck,&quot; said Reimer afterward. &quot;Its a crappy way to start the game.&quot; Rarely looking comfortable, though not helped at times by his support staff, Reimer yielded five at the end of the evening on just 30 shots. He owns a .901 save percentage in his last five appearances, all coming consecutively in the past week. &quot;Just like the rest of our team,&quot; said Carlyle, noticeably bothered by the swell of attention his comments the previous evening received. &quot;I get in trouble when I comment about goalies with [the media].&quot; &quot;First thing I just wanted to come out and play well and be a difference-maker and unfortunately it wasnt the case,&quot; said Reimer. &quot;I felt I made some good saves, but definitely wasnt the performance I was looking for. I wanted to come out and be big, keep your team in it. It just didnt happen tonight.&quot; Bothered by a groin injury, Bernier took to the ice Wednesday morning for the first time since he exited a long-awaited return to the Staples Center last week. He was expected to skate again in full equipment again on Friday with his status for a weekend back-to-back still in doubt. 2. Scary Incident Only 4.1 seconds remained in the first when Ranger was hammered from behind by Lightning forward Alex Killorn. Reversing to his left at the very last second, the 29-year-old was caught by the elbow of Killorn as he was slammed into the glass. &quot;He was in a tough spot,&quot; said Tim Gleason, who rushed in to confront Killorn afterward. &quot;He was facing the glass I think most of the way in. I think a little extra bump and thats all it takes. It almost looks harmless but its not.&quot; A hush encompassing the entire arena, Ranger remained down on the ice for quite a while, surrounded by concerned teammates and the teams medical staff. He was eventually helped off the ice on a stretcher, the intermission beginning with time still left on the clock and the Leafs left to wonder about the health of their fallen teammate. &quot;Thats scary,&quot; said Joffrey Lupul of the incident, Killorn receiving a five-minute major and game misconduct. &quot;Thats one of your teammates, your friends, a guy you see everyday. It didnt look great when he was leaving the ice. Youre trying to clear your head and focus on the next period, but you cant lie, obviously part of you is wondering whats going on with him.&quot; Ranger was taken to a local hospital and, according to the team, was &quot;stable, conscious and alert&quot;. 3. Stamkos Dominates With the hat trick Wednesday, Stamkos now has 13 goals and 25 points in 20 career games against his hometown team. Seven games back into his comeback from a broken tibia, he scored his first of the night on a power-play – David Clarkson in the box – lost back-door by Gleason and the Toronto penalty kill. He added a second marker less than three minutes later, just a step ahead of Dion Phaneuf for position in front of Reimer. The Lightning captain completed the trifecta early in the middle frame. Capitalizing on a failed clearing attempt by Lupul, Stamkos beat his counterpart to an Eric Brewer rebound, banging it past Reimer for the fourth Tampa goal. &quot;We had five guys around the puck,&quot; said Carlyle of the marker, which made it 4-2 for the Lightning. &quot;We had five people in position, but we were coasting and we were watching.&quot; &quot;Were just getting exposed,&quot; added Lupul. &quot;The area in which Stamkos scored his goals, you dont want to give anybody, specifically anybody of that skill-set, that kind of space in that area,&quot; Carlyle concluded. 4. Reimer II His future almost certainly resting outside of Toronto, Reimer made no secret of his troubles and tribulations this season, relegated to backup duty. &quot;Its been a really big test of character,&quot; he said. &quot;Learnt a lot about perseverance, endurance, and fighting through adversity. Really hasnt gone the way Id hoped. I havent played, I dont think, up to my capability for the last little while. Its tough. Its not for lack of effort, not for lack of passion or desire. But things just arent clicking. Im working hard, trying to stay positive, believing in myself and I fully believe that things will turn around.&quot; 5. Depth Scoring Offensive depth for the Leafs has gone almost completely quiet. Lupul and one-time linemate Nazem Kadri – they were split against the Lightning – have just two apiece in the past 14 games. David Clarkson has totaled just four all season and one in the past 23 games. Nik Kulemin scored Wednesday for just the second time in the past 18. Peter Holland has gone 20 straight without a single marker, potting just one point in that span. And Jay McClement, a source of eight goals in 48 games a year ago, has just three in 70 games. All of which has upped the pressure on the teams top line to produce, their failure to do so often meaning defeat. Phil Kessel snapped a four-game goal drought with his 35th of the year against the Lightning and though dangerous, his line was held off the scoresheet otherwise. Toronto forwards have just seven goals in the past six games, carried by the defence which has eight, including four from Gardiner. Stats-Pack 5 – Consecutive games in which Toronto has allowed the first goal. 2-1-0 – Leafs record against the Lightning this season. 7 – Goals from the Toronto forward group in the past six games. 14 – Number of times the Leafs have outshot their opposition this season, including a 39-30 advantage on Wednesday. 22:39 – Ice-time for James van Riemsdyk against the Lightning, leading the team. 7 – Consecutive games with a goal for the Leafs defence. 5 – Goals from Jake Gardiner in the past seven games. 20 – Consecutive games without a goal Peter Holland. 2 – Goals for Nik Kulemin in the past 18 games. Kulemin scored his ninth of the year against Tampa. Special Teams Capsule PP: 0-3Season: 20.4 per cent (7th) PK: 3-5Season: 78.3 per cent (28th) Quote of the Night &quot;Just like the rest of our team. I get in trouble when I comment about goalies with [the media]. I could say yes and no from here on in, but I dont think that would be fair would it?&quot; -Randy Carlyle, asked about the performance of James Reimer on Wednesday night.

FIFA said the suspension was requested by ethics prosecutor Michael Garcia, making Beckenbauer the first person to be punished as a result of the case. Beckenbauer refused &quot;repeated requests for his assistance, including requests that he provide information during an in-person interview or in response to written questions provided in both English and German,&quot; FIFA said in a statement. EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants have agreed to terms keeping linebacker Jon Beason on the roster. A person familiar with the agreement told The Associated Press that the veteran entering his eighth NFL season will return to the Giants. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been announced. Beason was acquired from Carolina last October for a seventh-round pick after he lost his job. He played well for New York, which had been weak in the middle of its defence. The 29-year-old Beason was a first-round draft pick of the Panthers in 2007 and made the All-Pro team in 2008. New York also re-signed placekicker Josh Brown and safety Stevie Brown, and officially signed guard Geoff Schwartz, running back Rashad Jennings and centre J.D. Walton. New York also waived linebacker Marcus Dowtin on Wednesday. Josh Brown set a franchise record in 2013 by making 17 consecutive field goals in his first season with the Giants. He hit 23 of 26 field goal attempts, a percentage of 88.5 that is third highest in Giants history. Brown also made all 31 extra points for 100 points. At Philadelphia, Brown scored all of the Giants points in a 15-7 victory on field goals of 40, 44, 33, 46 and 27 yards. He was the first Giant to kick three field goals of 40 yards or longer in a game since 1991, when Matt Bahr did it. A 12-year veteran, Brown previously played for the Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams. Stevie Brown missed last season with a knee injury after a strong 2012 campaign. He tore his left anterior cruciate ligament in a preseason game against the Jets and underwwent surgery two weeks later. <a href="http://www.authenticjetsfanatic.com/c-83-jets-demario-davis-jersey.aspx" target="_blank">DeMario Davis Jersey</a>. In his first season with the Giants in 2012, Brown had 11 starts at strong safety and led the team and tied for second in the NFL with eight interceptions. Browns eight interceptions were the most by a Giant since Willie Williams had 10 in 1968 and his 307 interception return yards broke the former Giants single-season record of 251, set by Hall of Famer Emlen Tunnell in 1949 and matched by Dick Lynch in 1963. Brown twice intercepted two passes in a game. Stevie Brown played in 23 games with Oakland and Indianapolis before joining the Giants. The deals with Schwartz and Jennings address the Giants two biggest needs. Schwartz has played with Carolina, Minnesota and the Chiefs, and joins the Giants after they waived-injured centre David Baas, who missed most of last season with neck and knee injuries. With Chris Snee returning for an 11th season, Schwartz would fill the hole at left guard, and that would allow Kevin Boothe to play centre if he can be re-signed. Justin Pugh will be the right tackle and Will Beatty will return at left tackle, if he can get over the broken leg he sustained in the final game of the regular season. Walton could challenge Boothe for the centres job, and if he claimed it the Giants would have depth at guard, too. The running back situation was iffy because of the uncertainty involving former first-round pick David Wilson. He had surgery for a neck injury and his future is a question mark. Jennings rushed for 733 yards in 15 games with Oakland, and played well against the Giants, gaining 88 yards on 20 carries. <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysmorewholesae.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.supplystitchedjerseys.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysnflwholesale.org/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapauthenticjerseysnflchina.net/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="https://www.wholesalejerseysfreest.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysusaauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="https://www.cheapjerseysfreest.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

SALT LAKE CITY - Sporting a Seahawks cap during afternoon shootaround, coach Dwane Casey reinforced a sentiment hes preached over and over again since coming to Toronto. <a href="http://www.hockeycoyotesauthority.com/tobias-rieder-coyotes-jersey-c-17/" target="_blank">Tobias Rieder Jersey</a> . &quot;Relentless defence wins in any sport,&quot; he said after watching the hard-hitting, opportunistic Seahawks stymie the Broncos and their high-octane offence. Casey didnt have to say much as he and his team watched Seattles dominant Super Bowl victory from their Salt Lake City hotel Sunday night. The message had already been engrained into the mindset of his players and stuck with them in Utah the following evening. &quot;We cant control if our shots go in, we cant make every shot but we can control when we play hard on the defensive end,&quot; DeMar DeRozan said after holding Utah to 41 per cent shooting in a 94-79 win over the Jazz Monday. &quot;Were understanding that more and more every game.&quot; Again, the Raptors got off to a slow start on the defensive end, something that plagued them in Portland Saturday as their comeback bid eventually fell short. The Jazz shot 50 per cent and scored 27 points, closing out the opening quarter with a three-point lead before Toronto tightened the screws in the second frame. Utah scored just 17 points in the second quarter, shooting 35 per cent from the field, 0-of-7 from three-point range and was held without a single assist. The Jazz didnt score more than 18 points in any quarter after the first. &quot;Thats an issue with our team,&quot; Casey said before the game. &quot;For whatever reason we turn up the intensity after halftime. I dont know if they like hearing me go ballistic at halftime.&quot; &quot;Its one of our unfortunate traits, I would say, but again well take [the win].&quot; The Raptors resiliency was tested again as Kyle Lowry - fresh off being named Eastern Conference Player of the Month - left for the locker room late in the third quarter to get treatment on a sore right knee. Lowry has been the teams most consistent contributor but seemed off his game, shooting 1-for-8 in 25 minutes before he was ruled out for the fourth quarter. The good news is the injury doesnt appear to be a serious one. Lowry has been battling soreness in the knee for about a week, playing through it and playing well, but on Monday he couldnt get it loose. &quot;I couldnt help my team as much as I wanted to,&quot; said Lowry, who expects to play in Sacramento on Wednesday. &quot;I trust my teammates would get the job done and thats what they did tonight.&quot; Torontos depth and team chemistry came through with Lowry on the sideline. Greivis Vasquez, who returned from a bout of the flu, stepped in at the point and scored 12 off the bench. Amir Johnson - playing on a sore right ankle - looked better, recording a double-double. Jonas Valanciunas had one of his better games in a tough matchup against Enes Kanter and John Salmons chipped in with 13 off the bench. As it has been when one Raptor struggles or gets hurt, the next man steps up. &quot;Thats what it is, I think were playing for each other,&quot; Vasquez said. &quot;I want Kyle to get healthy, I want the best for each and every one of us so thats important, man. When you have a team that has such a great atmosphere in the locker room, that care about each other, its going to be scary.&quot; Most importantly, it was the defensive effort that carried them to their sixth win over the last eight games. Casey preaches it every day and his troops have all bought in. Theyve seen how far it can take them. &quot;The good thing about it is our players were talking about it last night watching the [Super Bowl],&quot; said the Raptors coach. &quot;Our guys were talking about how [the Seahawks] were hitting people and thats what Ive been preaching and am preaching, hit first.&quot; &quot;Basketball-wise, its a little bit different but you can be aggressive for 48 minutes, take away options, take away passing lanes, bump cutters, box out [and] hit people coming for rebounds.&quot; Casey, an assistant with the Sonics for 11 years, resides in Seattle during the offseason and was invited to visit the Seahawks training camp a couple summers ago, where he - along with Blazers coach and good friend Terry Stotts - got the opportunity to watch Pete Carroll at work. The takeaway for Casey was to fully embrace and stay true to his philosophy as a head coach. &quot;[Carroll is] a guy thats comfortable in his skin and Im at that point in my career too,&quot; he said. &quot;In his first couple of tries he tried to do it the way the organization wanted to do it and he was trying to please everybody. I think you have to coach to your personality and to the personality of your team and thats what he conveyed to [Stotts] and I when we met with him&quot; That philosophy - defence first, second and third - has been hammered home since day one and the results are beginning to reflect it. Entering Mondays games the Raptors ranked sixth in defensive efficiency, just behind the leagues heavy hitters (Indiana, Chicago, Golden State, Oklahoma City and San Antonio). On Monday they surrendered just 79 points, matching the second lowest total theyve given up all year. &quot;I dont care who is playing, when you play the Utah Jazz, its a brand of basketball thats very difficult,&quot; Casey said. &quot;Youre going to have to grind it out, youre going to have to earn every inch, every yard in this place and we did tonight.&quot; &quot;The rest of the way, before the [All-Star] break, were going to have to grind it out mentally and physically,&quot; he continued. &quot;Thats how its going to be because people are going to come out throwing haymakers at us and weve got to be physically and mentally prepared for it.&quot; On the season, theyre now 22-6 when holding teams under 100 points. Theyre 20-4 when opponents shoot below 45 per cent. <a href="http://www.hockeycoyotesauthority.com/christian-fischer-coyotes-jersey-c-14/" target="_blank">Christian Fischer Jersey</a> .

WESTLAKE, Ohio -- New Zealands Steven Alker won the Cleveland Open on Sunday in the longest playoff in Web. <a href="http://www.hawksteamofficial.com/taurean-prince-hawks-jersey/" target="_blank">Taurean Prince Jersey</a> .com Tour history, beating South Africas Dawie van der Walt with a birdie on the 11th extra hole. Alker and van der Walt parred for first 10 holes in the playoff at Lakewood Country Club before Alker finally broke through with a 3-foot birdie putt on the par-4 18th. &quot;I finally had a right number,&quot; the 42-year-old Alker said. &quot;I had 172 yards and just hit a perfect 7-iron. ... I had a lot of chances. I felt like I was inside of Dawie several times and had several chances to win. I got a little bit dizzy out there. At one point, and I cant recall when, Dawie and I looked at each other and I said is Is anybody going to win?&quot; The 11-hole playoff broke the tour record of nine set it 1998 in Eric Bookers victory over Notah Begay III in the Lehigh Valley Open, and matched in 2009 in Gary Christians win over Mathias Gronberg in the Northeast Pennsylvania Classic. It also matched the record for the longest playoff in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event, set in the 1949 Motor City Open when Cary Middlecoff and Lloyd Mangrum were declared co-winners because of darkness. Alker bogeyed the final two holes of regulation for a 6-under 65, and van der Walt birdied the last two holes -- holing a 20-footer on 18 -- for a 66. They finished at 14-under 270 on the A.W. Tillinghast-designed course that opened in 1921. &quot;I didnt think I had a chance after the bogey on 16 (in regulation),&quot; van der Walt said. &quot;I had nothing to lose and everything to gain. I just played 11 holes and couldnt make another birdie.&quot; Alker earned $108,000 to jump from 102nd to 12th on the money list with $125,180. He has four career victories on the tour. &quot;Its very satisfying,&quot; said Alker, who successfully qualified for the U.S. Open on Monday in California. &quot;I won last year and then to come out and win again this year is really pleasing since I havent been in the habit of doing that.&quot; South Koreas Si Woo Kim was a stroke back after a 65. Jon Curran, Jason Gore, Jeff Curl and Ryan Armour tied for fourth at 11 under. <a href="http://www.hawksteamofficial.com/mike-bibby-hawks-jersey/" target="_blank">Mike Bibby Jersey</a> .

The league announced Thursday that Tom Higgins is leaving that post effective immediately.MONTREAL -- Canadas Laurent Duvernay-Tardif has his eyes set firmly on the upcoming NFL draft. Under the gaze of nine NFL and four CFL scouts, Duvernay-Tardif confirmed why hes one of the most touted Canadian football prospects in recent memory. The six-foot-five offensive lineman for the McGill Redmen had his private pro day in Montreal on Thursday. He leapt, sprinted and tackled during the two-hour training session, setting personal bests and impressing his visitors from out of town. Its been a while since a CIS player garnered such attention from both sides of the border. &quot;It doesnt happen every day, sure,&quot; said the 23-year-old, who chose to let scouts from both professional football leagues assess his abilities simultaneously, rather than attend last weeks CFL combine. &quot;And its not every day a Canadian gets the opportunity to do what Im doing. I dont know if this is historic. But Im really happy it happened to me.&quot; Duvernay-Tardif, a medical student at Montreals McGill University, is projected as a third-to-fourth round pick in Mays NFL draft. The native of St-Hilaire, Que., scored a personal best in the broad jump Thursday, and some scouts clocked him in at less than five seconds in the 40-yard dash -- impressive results for a player weighing just under 300 pounds. &quot;Ive been training for so long for these tests,&quot; said Duvernay-Tardif, who dedicated five months of work and conditioning to his pro day. &quot;It was time to show what I could do. I knew what I was going to hit. I hit those numbers, and even better.&quot; About the only downside was Duvernay-Tardif registering 34 reps in the bench press. While thats a more than respectable showing, Duvernay-Tardif was looking for between 37 and 40 reps. Still, his results in most categories place him amongst the top performers from last Februarys NFL scouting combine, a week-long event where the top U.S. college football prospects display their abilities before league coaches, scouts and GMs. In Duvernay-Tardifs case, the NFL came to him. Scouts from Oakland, Kansas City, Philadelphia, Arizona, New York, Green Bay, Chicago, San Francisco and Buffalo made the trip north to see first-hand if the Quebec native has what it takes to play in the NFL. Lee Gissendaner, area scout for the Green Bay Packers, was pleased with Duvernay-Tardifs overall performance. &quot;The most impressive was the way he moved around,&quot; said Gissendaner, now in his 13th yeear scouting for the Packers. <a href="http://www.hawksteamofficial.com/ersan-ilyasova-hawks-jersey/" target="_blank">Ersan Ilyasova Jersey</a>. . &quot;He showed the versatility that you like, the flexibility. He did everything in the workout. &quot;He seems like a guy who likes to compete. He responded to what we asked him to do, followed directions. His work ethic was on display.&quot; NFL scouts have been watching Duvernay-Tardif closely since the East-West Shrine game in St. Petersburg, Fla., last January. He and Manitoba defensive tackle Evan Gill -- another top prospect for this years CFL draft -- represented Canada at the annual U.S. college all-star game. &quot;You look for a guy to stand out at this level,&quot; said Gissendaner. &quot;When he came down to Florida, he held his own. We saw some raw ability, and some raw tools that maybe we can develop.&quot; Scouts will continue reviewing film, compare some of their top prospects, and put together draft and free agency boards until the start of the NFL draft May 8 in New York. If the offensive lineman gets his way he will be drafted by an NFL team and head to training camp this summer. There are only a handful of Canadians in the NFL, and earning a spot on a starting line in the U.S. is no easy task. And Duvernay-Tardif is actually the top-rated prospect for the coming CFL draft according to the latest rankings. Alongside NFL scouts Thursday were members of the Montreal Alouettes, Calgary Stampeders, Toronto Argonauts, and Ottawa Redblacks. &quot;Hes one of the top picks in this draft, for sure,&quot; said Joey Abrams, the Alouettes assistant director of player personnel. &quot;Its difficult to find a kid like this, with his skill set and abilities. Hes a rare specimen. This is unprecedented. Ive never seen this before. &quot;He met expectations. Everyone knew he was big and strong, and he showed that today.&quot; If the NFL doesnt come calling, Duvernay-Tardif is more than happy to play in is home country. &quot;I would love to play in the CFL,&quot; he said. &quot;I played against a lot of people that now play in the CFL. It would be great to play in that league. Im going to play and do my best wherever I end up.&quot; The CFL will hold its annual draft by conference call May 13. Notes: Earlier in the week, Duvernay-Tardif appeared on a two-page spread in the latest edition of Sports Illustrated. The article was titled &quot;Heal Thyself.&quot; a Last fall, Duvernay-Tardif was awarded the J.P. Metras Trophy as Canadian university footballs top lineman. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

LOS ANGELES -- The Miami Heat played the final minutes the way championship teams are supposed to. <a href="http://www.teambluejaysprostore.us/Dalton-Pompey-blue-jays-jersey/" target="_blank">Dalton Pompey Jersey</a> . The Los Angeles Clippers are still perfecting the art of closing out games against the elite teams. LeBron James had 31 points, 12 assists and eight rebounds, Ray Allen hit a clinching three-pointer in the final minute, and the Heat snapped a five-game road losing streak against the stubborn Clippers with a 116-112 victory on Wednesday night. Allen had 15 points off the bench for the two-time defending NBA champions, who began a six-game road trip that will be interrupted four games in by the All-Star break. Dwyane Wade, one of seven Miami players scoring in double figures, had 14 points and eight assists in his 700th regular-season game. The Heat had lost 10 of their previous 12 road games against the Clippers, and hadnt beaten them at Staples Center since Dec. 9, 2007. Los Angeles, coming off Mondays stinging 116-115 loss at Denver on a buzzer-beating 3-pointer by ex-Clipper Randy Foye, got a season-high 43 points and 13 rebounds from Blake Griffin and 31 points from Jamal Crawford. DeAndre Jordan extended his franchise record of consecutive double-digit rebound performances to 29 games with 16 boards and 16 points. The Pacific Division champions are 11-6 since Chris Paul went down with a separated right shoulder on Jan. 3 at Dallas. With Darren Collison and Crawford replacing Paul and J.J. Redick (sore right hip) in the starting lineup, the Clippers bench produced only two points -- a 20-foot jumper by Jared Dudley with 3:17 left in the first quarter -- until Willie Green hit a pair of free throws to pull Los Angeles within 91-84 with 9:51 to play. Allen, who holds the NBA record for career three-pointers, converted a four-point play after Green fouled him behind the arc. That extended Miamis lead to 99-87 with 8:07 remaining. His second three, a rainbow from the left corner, made it 112-107 with 42.4 seconds to go. &quot;Thats when the talent kicks in,&quot; James said. &quot;The play was broken down a little bit, but D-Wade made a heck of a play by getting into the paint, and Ray just kept moving into his favourite spot -- one of those corners. D-Wade found him with a great pass, and Ray nailed it.&quot; Allen, in his 18th NBA season, played in his 1,271st regular-season game and overtook John Havlicek for 19th place all-time. &quot;Hes a pro and he takes care of himself. Hes in just phenomenal shape, and he can run forever,&quot; said Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who had Allen for five seasons with the Celtics. &quot;What impressed me the most when we were in Boston was his professionalism and his ability to make big shots. Ray could go 0 for 20, or 20 for 20, and the next day hed be the first guy in the gym, shooting all of his shots from his exact spots at the exact speed. Ray lives that.&quot; The Clippers, who held Miami to just two field goals over the first 7:47 of the fourth quarter, narrowed the gap to 99-95 with a 10-0 run capped by Griffins tip-in with 5:15 left. But James responded with a three-pointer and a layup 53 seconds apart. &quot;Obviously weve had our battles with Doc, being in the Eastern Conference for so long, so we know how well his team is going to be prepared,&quot; James said. &quot;I think it was just our mental toughness, especially in the third quarter when they made their run. We just stayed composed and found a way to get a win. We made stops and executed offensively.&quot; The Heat opened the third quarter with an 11-5 run that extended their seven-point halftime lead to 73-60. Wade set up an alley-oop dunk by James, and Mario Chalmers hit a three-pointer from in front of the Clippers bench to cap the rally with 8:48 left in the period. Chalmers basket put all of Miamis starters in double-figure scoring. Griffin led all scorers in the first half with 22 points and Crawford added 18, including a buzzer-beating 3-pointer at the end of the second quarter. But the Heat led 62-55 at intermission after shooting 57 per cent. Miamis ball movement was superb from the outset, recording assists on all but one of its first 18 field goals and building a 43-24 lead with 9:44 left in the second quarter. The Heat had 33 assists on 41 field goals overall. &quot;We pride ourselves on moving the ball, and we know that makes it easier for all of us,&quot; James said. &quot;We keep everyone in a rhythm when were passing the ball and sharing the ball. Tonight we had some turnovers, including myself. I mean, I was the main culprit (with seven), and Ive got to be more conscious of that and not turn the ball over so much.&quot; NOTES: James was called for a reach-in foul against Griffin with 3:17 left in the third quarter, his first of the game, and was assessed a technical foul by referee Bill Kennedy for complaining about it with Miami leading 81-69. ... The Clippers began a five-game homestand that includes four opponents that entered Wednesday with a combined 126-62 record -- Portland and division leaders Miami, Toronto and San Antonio. ... Miami improved to 8-2 against teams that currently lead their division. The Clippers are 3-6 in that department. <a href="http://www.teambluejaysprostore.us/Kendrys-Morales-blue-jays-jersey/" target="_blank">Kendrys Morales Jersey</a> . Mike Vecchione tied it at 2 with 4:01 left in the first, Saskatoon native Eli Lichtenwald gave the Dutchman the lead 57 seconds later, and Daniel Ciampini capped the spree with 2:57 to go. <a href="http://www.teambluejaysprostore.us/Devon-Travis-blue-jays-jersey/" target="_blank">Devon Travis Jersey</a> .

In the Brewers six games this season, no starter has allowed more than three runs. &quot;We see the guy in front of us do a great job and we want to do even better,&quot; Gallardo said after the Brewers beat the Red Sox 4-0 on Sunday, his second straight scoreless start.KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Manager Ned Yosts faith in Bruce Chen paid off for the Kansas City Royals. Chen worked five innings and Salvador Perez doubled home two runs and the Royals beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 on Wednesday night. The Royals, who have not made the playoffs since 1985, are 2 1/2 games back in the wild-card standings, while the Indians are a half-game behind. &quot;I felt really good about Bruce being on the hill for us,&quot; Yost said. &quot;I just felt his veteran experience was going to be crucial in a big game like this. My mindset was to get him through the lineup twice and if we had any lead at all, to do some manoeuvring. &quot;A game of this magnitude you dont play around. Weve got 10 games left. You dont play (around) with 10 games left especially when they are this big. You get it out of the way and then you worry about tomorrow tomorrow.&quot; Yost did some bullpen manoeuvring to keep the lead. &quot;Every single game is a must win,&quot; Chen said. &quot;Were behind. Were trying to catch up. The bullpen did an outstanding job. We have the best bullpen in the American League.&quot; Chen was pulled in the sixth after giving up a single to Michael Bourn and walking Nick Swisher to lead off the inning. &quot;He does what he does,&quot; Indians manager Terry Francona said of Chen. &quot;Hes up, down, in, out. Nothing the same speed. He takes the sting out of your bat. He really knows how to pitch.&quot; Francisley Bueno replaced Chen and recorded two outs with three pitches. After Jeff Kipnis advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt, Bueno kept the runners put when Carlos Santana grounded out to third baseman Mike Moustakas. Louis Coleman came in and retired Ryan Raburn on a fly to right to strand the runners. Royals relievers Tim Collins, Will Smith and Greg Holland preserved the lead, allowing just one hit, to keep the teams playoff chances alive. The Royals broke the game open with three runs off four Indians pitchers in the eighth. Alcides Escobar had a two-run single on a full-count off Carlos Carrasco, while Jarrod Dyson walked with the bases loaded. <a href="http://www.teambluejaysprostore.us/Darwin-Barney-blue-jays-jersey/" target="_blank">Darwin Barney Jersey</a>. . &quot;The last at-bat, thats one of my best at-bats of the year,&quot; Escobar said. &quot;I was just trying to put ball in play, ground ball, fly ball, anywhere. I was really concentrating. I was trying to put the ball in play and got the base hit.&quot; Rookie Danny Salazar (1-3), who had allowed just one run in 13 2-3 innings in his first three September starts, took the loss, giving up four runs and six hits in six innings. The Royals jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first with Perezs two-out double, scoring Eric Hosmer and Billy Butler. Perez went to third on the throw home and scored on a Salazar wild pitch. The Indians scored a pair of runs in the third. Yan Gomes came home after centre fielder Dyson had trouble picking up Michael Brantleys double. Brantley wound up scoring on Bourns sacrifice fly. The Royals used a double steal in the fifth for their fourth run. Escobar avoided the tag of catcher Gomes to steal home, while Alex Gordon, who was initially caught in a rundown, stole second. Escobar became the first Royal to steal home since Jeff Francoeur on Aug. 11, 2012, at Baltimore. &quot;I was kind of looking to take him back to third base and peaked (at the other runner) and when I did that he kind of dropped and went under my tag,&quot; Gomes said. Notes: The Royals recalled LHP Chris Dwyer, who allowed one single and struck out eight in seven scoreless innings for Omaha in the Triple-A 2-1 championship victory over Durham on Tuesday, and IF Irving Falu, who hit .256 in 135 games with the Storm Chasers. Falu was with Kansas City for one day, Aug. 11, but was optioned back to Omaha the next day without playing. ... Indians RHP Justin Masterson, a 14-game winner who is out with an oblique strain, threw 120 feet in long toss and made 20 to 25 pitches off flat ground. ... The Indians won the season series from the Royals for the ninth time in 10 years. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

Every night of the Stanley Cup playoffs, TSN hockey analyst and former NHL goaltender Jamie McLennan breaks down each goalies performance. <a href="http://www.shopnyjets.us/customized/" target="_blank">Custom New York Jets Jerseys</a> . Jamies number grades given are out of five, with five being the best mark. Ray Emery, Philadelphia (4): He had an outstanding game, as he tracked the puck well and was in great position for most saves on Derek Stepan, St. Louis and Rick Nash in the second to keep it at 3-2. He was also very impressive with his stop on Mats Zuccarello in the third. Emery was the difference in this game for Philly. Henrik Lundqvist, NY Rangers (3): King Henrik had a solid game, with big saves on Jakub Voracek in the third on a breakaway and Wayne Simmonds on the back door. He gave them a chance to stay in it and his paddle down move is his strength, but his angling of the rebound cost him one on the Schenn goal. Tuukka Rask, Boston (4): Rask was locked in all game long, aggressive like he was on Brendan Smith in the third. He had no chance on the Luke Glendening goal as it was a deflection, but was strong with his rebounds through 60 minutes. He had a great response game. Jimmy Howard, Detroit (2): Goal No. 1 was a bad bounce off Smith, faced a ton of traffic omn Sunday and the Bruins game plan was to get in front of him all night. Goals No. 2 and No. 4 saw him battle traffic and scrambles. Carey Price, Montreal (4): Price continued to make timely saves for the Habs. He didnt get much work early on, but his huge blocker save in the second was money. Anders Lindback, Tampa Bay (4): He was the only reason it wasnt an ugly score, making big stops on Rene Bourque, Max Pacioretty, Brandon Prust and the list goes on. It was a very lopsided game that was closer on the scoreboard than the actual game and Lindback has a nice bounce back from a soft performance in his last game. Jonathan Quick, Los Angeles (2): Quick madee big saves on Patrick Marleau, Joe Pavelski, Tommy Wingels and Tomas Hertl in the first period, but was eaten alive by the speed attack of the Sharks that targeted his blocker side (five out of seven goals beat him high blocker). He didnt get a ton of help for sure from his blueliners, who were atrocious, and he faced more than 10 of what I call 10 bell chances, capped off by a Wingels breakaway with 40 seconds left. Antti Niemi, San Jose (4): Niemi was solid all night long. He was beat on play with traffic in front and a redirection and did not get a ton of quality chances against, but he did his job to be solid in net as the Sharks put up a touchdown in goal support. <a href="http://www.shopnyjets.us/lac-edwards-jersey/" target="_blank">Lac Edwards Jersey</a> . Messis father, Jorge Horacio Messi, is apparently still under investigation for an alleged 4 million euros ($5.3 million) in unpaid taxes from Messis image rights from 2007-09. Messis public relations firm confirmed Spanish media reports that the state prosecutor has asked for Messi to be dropped from the investigation that began in June 2013. <a href="http://www.shopnyjets.us/eric-tomlinson-jersey/" target="_blank">Eric Tomlinson Jersey</a> . In the days leading up to the draft, TSN.ca and TSN Radio basketball analyst Duane Watson looks at some of the names that will be headlining the event. Tonight, Michigans Nik Stauskas of Mississauga, Ontario. <a href="http://www.shopnyjets.us/marcus-williams-jersey/" target="_blank">http://www.shopnyjets.us/marcus-williams-jersey/</a> . The thunderous cheers quickly changed to an appreciative chant: &quot;Ma-son! Ma-son! Ma-son! Headed to New York with new life, Mason sure earned this curtain call. TORONTO -- B.C. running back Andrew Harris is the CFLs top offensive player and top Canadian for Week 3 after his big game helped the Lions beat the Saskatchewan Roughriders 26-13. Edmonton Eskimos defensive tackle Almondo Sewell was named the top defensive player, while Calgary Stampeders kick returner Jock Sanders was awarded the weeks special teams honour. Harris rushed for 138 yards and scored a touchdown on 18 carries in Saturdays win over the Roughriders. The Winnipeg native added five receptions for a team-high 65 yards. Harris scored his second touchdown of the season on a 58-yard runn that gave the Lions a 11-0 lead late in the first quarter. <a href="http://www.shopnyjets.us/quincy-enunwa-jersey/" target="_blank">Quincy Enunwa Jersey</a>. Sewell recorded four tackles, including sacking Redblacks quarterback Henry Burris a career-high three times in the Eskimos 27-11 win over Ottawa on Friday. Sewell also added a special teams tackle in the win. This is Sewells first Player of the Week award in his career. Sanders returned Swayze Waterss missed field goal for 121 yards to set up a Jeff Fuller touchdown in his teams 34-15 win over the Toronto Argonauts on Saturday. Sanders also returned three punts for 34 yards and a kickoff for 19 yards. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

The Bulldogs finished as the top team in Conference-USAs West Division this season, going 8-5 overall and 7-1 in conference play. LaTech had a chance for the C-USA outright title, but lost to Marshall in the championship game, 33-26, back on Dec. 6. Illinois, meanwhile, is coming into the game thanks to a win in its regular- season finale against Northwestern, 47-33. The victory made the Illini bowl eligible at 6-6 and improved the teams conference mark to 3-5, which was fifth best in the Big Ten. LaTech sits in a good spot to pick up just its third bowl win in its seventh try (2-3-1). The Bulldogs recorded four more wins in 2014 than they did in head coach Skip Holtzs first season at the helm in 2013. The Bulldogs ranked fourth in most-improved scoring offense with a 102.1 percent improvement, going from an average of 19.2 points per game in 2013 to a current average of 37.5 points per game this season. Running back Kenneth Dixon leads the Bulldog offense. He rushed for 156 yards and three touchdowns against Marshall to improve his season total to 1,238 yards and 21 touchdowns. For his career, Dixon has amassed 3,347 rushing yards with 52 touchdowns on the ground in 35 games. As a team, the Bulldogs offense averages 403.8 yards per game, going for 151.2 on the ground and 252.6 through the air. Redshirt senior quarterback Cody Sokol threw for 3,189 yards with 29 touchdowns and 13 picks this season. He was named the C-USAs Newcomer of the Year after transferring in from Iowa. It all starts with Cody Sokol, said Holtz. He came in and did a great job of getting players to buy in, setting a real example as a leader with his toughness and the way he plays the game. Sokols favorite target was sophomore wide receiver Trent Taylor, who hauled in a team-high 62 catches for 814 yards with nine scores. On the defensive side of the ball, Louisiana Tech is the national leader in points off of turnovers. With 14 points off of turnovers in the Marshall game, the Bulldogs have scored 164 points off turnovers in 13 games this season (12.6 points per game). Last season, Louisiana Tech scored only 64 points off turnovers the entire year (5.3 points a game). This will be a nice opportunity for starting defensive end Houston Bates, who transferred to the Bulldogs from Illinois. A fifth-year transfer to the Bulldog program, Bates is a previous All-Big Ten Conference selection. He started all 13 games for the Bulldogs with 28 total tackles to his credit including 10. <a href="http://www.baseballtigersgear.com/Anthony-Gose-Jersey/" target="_blank">Anthony Gose Jersey</a>. .5 tackles for a loss of 55 yards, 5.5 sacks, an interception, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, two pass break-ups and a team-leading 12 QB hurries. The Bulldogs last bowl win came in 2008 when they defeated Northern Illinois in the Independence Bowl. Illinois had to win three of its last five games to even become bowl eligible and the program had a real gut check to get there. There came a point in time right before we played Minnesota where we gathered up as a team and had to go one direction or the other, said Illinois head coach Tim Beckman. We could either step forward, meet the challenge and attack the Minnesota Golden Gophers or we could just give in. This football team was not going to do that. It was important for Beckmans squad to earn its first bowl bid since 2011, despite the lack of overall success this season. We needed to get to a bowl game, our program needs those types of things to move forward, Beckman added. I cannot tell you the excitement that is in Champaign and in our facility with our athletic department to earn a bowl game down here in Dallas. Offensively, Illinois boasts one of the top passing offenses in the Big Ten, ranking third in the conference in passing yards per game (243.2) and completion percentage (61.2 percent) and fifth in passing efficiency. Beckman has done it with a QB competition approach. Senior Reilly OToole was under center for the last two games, both wins, but Wes Hunt and Aaron Bailey are also getting action in practices leading up to the bowl game. OToole finished the season completing 58.7 percent of his passes for 1,049 yards with nine touchdowns and seven interceptions in 12 games. Lunt completed 63.9 percent of his passes for 1,729 passing yards, 14 touchdowns and three interceptions in seven games. Despite who plays under center, wideout Mike Dudek appears to be everyones favorite target, hauling in a team-best 69 catches for 965 yards with six TDs. The Illini averages 26.6 points per game with Josh Ferguson leading the way on the ground. He has run for 685 yards and eight scores. Donovonn Young has added five TDs on the ground. This is a rematch of a 2012 meeting between the two schools that saw Louisiana Tech roll to a 52-24 win in Champaign, Ill. Louisiana Tech is 2-2 all-time against the Big Ten and has won its last two meetings against Big Ten opponents. Prior to Techs 52-24 win over Illinois in 2012, the Bulldogs topped Michigan State, 20-19, in East Lansing on Sept. 13, 2003. These school have a common opponent this year in Western Kentucky. Louisiana Tech dismantled the Hilltoppers, 59-10, on Nov. 1, while Illinois beat WKU, 42-34, on Sept. 6 in Champaign. <a href="http://www.chinastorenflfactory.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.nflmallwebsitecheap.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysthrowback.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapjerseysauthenticfromchina.com/" target="_blank">Jerseys From China</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysautographed.com/" target="_blank">Wholesale NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.cheapchinajerseysforsale.com/" target="_blank">Cheap NFL Jerseys</a> <a href="http://www.wholesalejerseysforcheapauthentic.com/" target="_blank">Cheap Jerseys</a> ' ' '

KAMLOOPS, B. <a href="http://www.officialjazzproauthentic.com/Authentic-Tony-Bradley-Jazz-Jersey/" target="_blank">Tony Bradley Jersey</a> .C. -- Its one game Kevin Koe never looks forward to playing. &quot;This one, you dont get a lot of enjoyment out of,&quot; the Alberta skip said, after beating younger brother Jamie Koe from the Northwest Territories-Yukon 8-3 in eight ends Monday at the Canadian mens curling championship. &quot;Its never fun beating them because Im always cheering for them every year theyre here,&quot; he said. &quot;That being said, we needed a win.&quot; Alberta improved to 3-1 at the Tim Hortons Brier, at least until the evening draw, when he was set to face unbeaten Manitoba and Jeff Stoughton. The Territories fell to 1-3. &quot;Its good that its early in the week so hopefully both of us win the rest of our games,&quot; he added. &quot;Theyre obviously better,&quot; Jamie said of the encounters with his brother. &quot;Were going to have to play our best and hope for some breaks but its a fair battle.&quot; Jamie Koe has represented the Territories four out of the last five years but when Kevin has been there he has always won the brother-vs.-brother tussle. Monday also saw New Brunswicks James Grattan score his first win this year against Greg Balsdon of Ontario 9-6. Grattan gave Stoughton a fight Sunday as well and said it felt good to get a monkey off his back with the win. &quot;When we went to bed last night we felt pretty good about it,&quot; he said of the Manitoba game. &quot;The team in the last two games has really shown up.&quot; He says getting used to the ice has been an issue. They lost their first game 13-5 and the second 10-1. &quot;We come from an area of the world where the ice is fairly straight all the time . . Coming out here and all of a sudden youre taking the 12-foot to get to the lid and its a different ball game.&quot; Its also important to win games at the Brier if you want a reserved spot in the future. A new system is coming into place that will force the bottom finishers to compete for the right to return. Its being brought in to keep the field the same size with the addition of a Team Canada and new rinks from Nunavut and Yukon, instead of just one Territories team. P.E.I.s Eddie MacKenzie also grabbed a share of second place as he climbed to 3-1 after beating Quebecs Jean-Michel Menard. But, that could change after the evening draw. MacKenzie has already matched his combined record at his first two Brier appearances for Prince Edward Island , in 2011 and 2013. &quot;Its definitely better than 0-5 or 0-6 like we were the last couple of times,&quot; he said. &quot;Id say being here the last three out of four years helps for sure, playing on arena ice a little more.&quot; Saskatchewans Steve Laycock also sat at 3-1 after beating still winless Nova Scotia 5-3. &quot;We kind of figured 3-1 or 4-0 was where wed want to be after this stretch because we do have some of the favourites coming up,&quot; he said. Nova Scotia skip Jamie Murphy isnt too thrilled at the Canadian Curling Association for the changes coming in 2015 that could see Nova Scotia have to fight for the right to play in the Brier. &quot;Were firm believers that messing with traditions such as the Brier doesnt seem like a smart decision,&quot; he said of the new system, popularly known as relegation, although it seems anything but popular. &quot;Were obviously biased when we say that because were probably going to be in the relegation pool.&quot; <a href="http://www.officialjazzproauthentic.com/Authentic-Joe-Johnson-Jazz-Jersey/" target="_blank">Joe Johnson Jersey</a> . - Their offence is underperforming. <a href="http://www.officialjazzproauthentic.com/Authentic-Dante-Exum-Jazz-Jersey/" target="_blank">Dante Exum Jersey</a> .

When New Zealand finally held on for an 8-7 win, France No. 8 Imanol Harinordoquy collapsed to the ground, having given every drop of energy he could muster, and lay prone as All Blacks danced around him in celebration. Few critics had given France any chance, but coach Marc Lievremonts team rallied from 8-0 down and came within one kick of taking the lead with 15 minutes remaining, only for flyhalf Francois Trinh-Ducs 49-meter effort to drift wide.Manchester Citys ageing squad may need a bigger overhaul than Pep Guardiola initially thought, admits Jamie Carragher. Citys 1-0 defeat to United in the Manchester derby on Super Sunday means they are now 14 points off Premier League leaders Leicester, and are now in a battle to keep their hold on fourth place.Guardiola will replace current manager Manuel Pellegrini in the summer, a move which was announced in early February, but Sky Sports pundit Carragher says he may need to bring in seven or eight new players. In February, Pep Guardiola was announced as Manuel Pellegrinis successor in the summer He said on Super Sunday: This is a team who even last season we talked about as being a great team, with four or five world class players, who were just coming over the hill.The first four or five games it looked like theyd proved me wrong, I thought theyd go on and win the league. Man City 0-1 Man Utd Marcus Rashford scored on his Manchester derby debut as United all but ended Citys title hopes They have the oldest squad in the Premier League behind West Brom, now West Brom dont play dont play two games a week, they play once.This team havent got it in them, although they are great players you can see they havent got the legs, the energy in them now to keep going in all competitions throughout a season. City fell 1-0 to United in the Manchester derby This has been coming since last season, not just since Pep Guardiola was announced.Pep Guardiola will be watching that today. I think he would have been thinking initially he needs three or four players. I think they might need seven or eight.You may think Im going too far with that now, but its the age of the squad.The money theyve spent, and how they can have an age profile like that, is probably mismanagement, perhaps from above Manuel Pellegrini. Pellegrini walked out of his interview with Geoff Shreeves post-match The world class players they have now dont need replacing, but they need a lot more help. <a href="http://www.officialjazzproauthentic.com/Authentic-Donovan-Mitchell-Jazz-Jersey/" target="_blank">Donovan Mitchell Jersey</a>. .Marcus Rashfords early goal gave United all three points at the Etihad Stadium, meaning City have now won just two of their seven league games since Guardiolas move was confirmed.Sky Sports pundit Graeme Souness believes that while City were in a tough situation as to whether to announce the Guardiola move, the timing has affected the clubs form. Pellegrini walks out of interview Manuel Pellegrini said City played well in the derby before walking out of the Sky Sports interview I think [Pellegrinis] frustrated in the bigger picture. He has tried to be really professional with what he has said, how he has acted, but deep down he will be hurt by being shown the door here.Theres not a shadow of a doubt that it has impacted on their form. They have played seven, lost four, won two, and the two theyve won were against Aston Villa and Sunderland. Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal gives his reaction to Sky Sports after the win So dont tell me his announcement that he is going has not affected the football club.But City were put in a very difficult place. If they hadnt announced Pep Guardiola he could have been chased by somebody else.Former City striker Niall Quinn agreed with Carraghers assessment that the squad needs an overhaul, setting up what could be a busy summer in Manchester.Im not so sure Guardiola will have been watching that today thinking that hes got eight or so players out of that team that he could do a great job with. I think hell look for more than that.
