The Penguins meanwhile will clinch top spot in the Metropolitan Division. The only goal of the first period came just as a Jets penalty expired, with Beau Bennett getting his third of the year, Sidney Crosby picking up the first of his two assists. Coach Paul Maurice also took a puck in the forehead ni the first, needing some attention. Shots in the first were 8-6 Pittsburgh. The Jets tied the game early in the second with Olli Jokinen scoring his 17th, assists to Blake Wheeler and Dustin Byfuglien. For Wheeler it was his 65th point of the season, a new single-season high for him. The Jets had a great chance to take the lead on a power play, but chances by Byfuglien and Andrew Ladd went for not as both shots missed the net. The Jets did tie it on a great play by Adam Pardy. He worked his way around two Pens, got the puck to Matt Halischuk who found Zach Redmond in the high slot for his first of the year. Late in the period the Jets got caught on a long shift, had a couple of chances to clear the zone but did not, resulting in Craig Adams tying the game with 1:13 left. Shots in the second were 6-6. With Mark Stuart off on a very questionable hooking call, the Pens took the lead on a Paul Martin goal, Crosby with his 102nd point of the season on the play.  Crosby then went off on an interference call,  and the Pens caught a break. Tanner Glass cleared the puck over the glass that would have given the Jets a lengthy two-man advantage, but after a long discussion the officials ruled it was deflected. Replays showed otherwise. Brian Gibbons made it 4-2 at 16:24 and that was the final. The Jets were outshot 7-3 in the third, and 21-15 over the game. Brian Little had his seven-game point streak come to an end, Jacob Trouba had three shots on goal to lead the team, and also led the team in ice time at 23:23.  Jokinen won 9 of 12 face-offs. Byfuglien and Anthony Peluso each had six hits. Paul Maurice had another stat in his post-game news conference. “We missed the net 18 times, more than we had on net. Thats the difference.” The Jets also had another 12 blocked. Asked about the Stuart penalty in the third, “Weve made improvements with our sticks. Not sure if that one was a penalty. Sometimes you need to be higher up on the food chain.,” Maurice said. On the game, “I would like us to execute better and liked to see that push on a 2-2 game.” Jets are in Toronto Saturday (TSN 1290), before returning home to play Minnesota Monday and Boston Thursday (Both TSN Jets and TSN 1290), then close out the season in Calgary Friday (TSN Jets, TSN 1290). Filipe Luis Brazil Jersey . - The New Orleans Saints have re-signed receiver Joseph Morgan for one year and have agreed to a four-year deal with free agent fullback Erik Lorig. Paulinho Jersey .

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 3 Florida has won with defence most of the season. The Gators showed Saturday they can pull out games on the other end of the court, too. Scottie Wilbekin scored 16 points, leading all five starters in double figures, and Florida beat Alabama 78-69 for its 15th straight victory. The Gators handled the Tide for the second time in 16 days and extended a school record for consecutive home wins to 29. "If you play defence the way we did tonight, youre not going to win," coach Billy Donovan said. "Thank God we had some offence today that helped us." Florida (21-2, 10-0 Southeastern Conference) shot a blistering 62 per cent from the field and finished with a season-high 22 assists. The Gators trailed by seven late in the first half before taking over the game in the paint and in transition. That opened things up on the perimeter for Wilbekin and Michael Frazier II. Wilbekin was 3-for-5 shooting from behind the arc, making all three in the second half. Frazier was 3 for 8 from the 3-point range. Frazier finished with 14 points, joining Wilbekin, Casey Prather (15), Will Yeguete (12) and Patric Young (11) in double figures. It was the first time all five of Floridas starters topped 10 points since Nov. 21 against Middle Tennessee. "We have a balanced team, and anyone can beat you on any given night," Prather said. Prather, the teams leading scorer, failed to reach double figures the last two games while dealing with a sprained left ankle. He returned to form against Alabama even though Donovan wasnt sure he would play a few hours before the tip. Donovan gave Prather the option of playing or resting, and he chose to give it a go. "Its got nothing to do with him not being a tough kid or he cant play through pain," Donovan said. "It gets more into the fact that he doesnt feel confidence-wise that hes capable of doing the things he knows he can do. When he gets to that place, he really gets mentally taken out because he knows he cant do certain things. "When he knows he can do things physically, it adds to his confidence. Willian Brazil Jersey. When he cant move like he wants to move, I think he knows hes putting our team in jeopardy, and that eats him alive and kills him." Trevor Releford led the Tide (9-14, 3-7) with 25 points on 7-for-10 shooting. He was 4 for 6 from behind the 3-point line and perfect on seven free throws. Releford scored 16 points in the first half, carrying Alabama for much of the afternoon. His 3-pointer put the Tide up 28-21, silencing the sold-out OConnell Center. Alabama shot 61 per cent in the opening half and went 5 for 7 from behind the arc, giving the defensive-minded Donovan plenty to talk about at halftime. The Gators responded with an effective press, made 3-pointers and a heavy dose of post play that seemingly wore down the Tide. "Theyre at their best when theyre in transition," Tide coach Anthony Grant said. "From an offensive standpoint, they took us out of some things that we were able to get there in the first half." Florida went on a 25-8 run that turned a deficit into a double-digit lead. The Tide ended up losing its four straight and sixth in the last seven games. "This program cant do anything but go up," Releford said. "Its just a process. Right now were losing a game, but I feel as a team were getting better and Coach is helping us with that." Chris Walker, Floridas highly touted freshman who became eligible this week, played just 4 minutes in his second collegiate game. He finished with four points, two fouls and a rebound. Donovan said he hopes to get Walker more playing time. For as dominant as Florida has been recently, the teams toughest test comes next week. The Gators play at Tennessee on Tuesday night and then at No. 18 Kentucky on Saturday. Those games could go a long way to determining how Florida finishes in the conference and what kind of seed it gets in next months NCAA tournament. "I dont think we played great," Yeguete said. "We got it done, but we didnt play great. We know weve got to do a better job if we want to win in Knoxville on Tuesday." Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL T-shirts Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Hoodies China NFL Hoodies China NFL Jerseys China NFL Gear ' ' '
