Ottawa, ON (SportsNetwork. Philippe Coutinho Jersey .com) - Robin Lehner made 35 saves, and the Ottawa Senators scored four goals in a 5 1/2 minute span in their 7-2 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday afternoon. Milan Michalek and Mark Stone each scored in the closing minutes of the second period, and Bobby Ryan and Jean-Gabriel Pageau added goals very early in the third period. Ottawa also got goals from Mike Hoffman, Erik Karlsson and Mika Zibanejad to win for the second time in three games. Marc Methot tallied a career-high three assists. Mike Smith allowed five Senators goals on 20 shots against him before getting the hook in the third period. Zbynek Michalek and Sam Gagner scored Arizonas goals as the Coyotes fell to 1-3-2 on their ongoing eight-game road trip. After two goals were scored in the first 69 seconds of the game, it took until late in the second period for either team to light the lamp again. Milan Michalek skated around two Coyotes before snapping a shot past Smith to break the 1-1 tie. Stone extended Ottawas lead two minutes later when he deflected Methots point shot. Ottawa added to its lead right after a successful penalty kill early in the third period. A Coyotes turnover exiting the zone sent the Senators moving the other way. Ryan took the backhand pass from Clarke MacArthur and jabbed a one-timer past Smith. Just 20 seconds later, Pageaus backhand goal chased Smith from the game, and Louis Domingue made his NHL debut in relief. Gagner scored the next goal when he deflected Lauri Korpikoskis wrist shot by Lehner, but the Coyotes would not get any closer. With eight minutes to go in the game, Karlsson took advantage of an ill- timed Arizona line change to fire a shot by Domingue, and Zibanejad scored with 1 1/2 minutes left after Ryan set him up for a one-timer at the side of the net. One game after only needing five seconds in a period to score a goal, Arizona got off to another fast start against Ottawa. Zbynek Michalek scored just 40 seconds into the game when his wrist shot deflected off Methots glove into the net. Hoffman only needed 29 seconds to tie the game when he wristed a loose puck by Smith. Game Notes Ottawa swept the season series, outscoring Arizona 12-3 ... Zibanejad has scored in three straight games ... The Coyotes have been outscored 62-31 in the third period ... David Legwand had two assists for the Senators, and Ryan, Stone, Karlsson and Zibanejad each had two points ... For the first time since Jan. 12, 1985, two sets of brothers competed in the same game with Zbynek and Milan Michalek and the Stone brothers, Mike and Mark. Nelson Semedo Barcelona Jersey . That further limits the options of Australia coach Ewen McKenzie, who on Monday suspended six players who were involved in a night out in Dublin ahead of the Saturdays 32-15 win over the Irish. The Wallabies play Scotland on Saturday before facing Wales on Nov. Marc-Andre ter Stegen Jersey .com) - No Sidney Crosby, no problem. SAN MARTIN, Calif. -- After a year spent travelling the world, Brooks Koepka suddenly is in a position to play a lot more golf at home. In his first regular PGA Tour event, Koepka surged to the top of the leaderboard Friday in the Frys.com Open with a 7-under 64, giving him a one-shot lead over Jason Kokrak going into the weekend at CordeValle. Kokrak, a runner-up at this event last year, hit 6-iron to the par-5 ninth to a foot for eagle and a 65. Koepka, a 23-year-old Floridian, received a sponsors exemption into the PGA Tour season opener between stops in Scotland and Shanghai. He had no status at the start of the year after failing to advance beyond the second stage of Q-school last year. Instead of trying to qualify for Web.com Tour events, Koepka packed his bags and passport for a 15-country journey that has served him well. He won three times on the Challenge Tour to earn his European Tour card. He played the Dunhill Links in Scotland two weeks ago and in two weeks heads to the BMW Masters in Shanghai. If he were to win the Frys.com Open, he would have a two-year exemption on the PGA Tour. "Theres no pressure. Just enjoying it right now," Koepka said. "Looking forward to the weekend. I dont see any pressure. Yeah, it would be big. Obviously, be nice to win and get status over here. But you play good, everything kind of takes care of itself." It has so far -- not just the last two days, but all year. Koepka, who make eight birdies and an eagle, was at 11-under 131. With no wind in the afternoon, the cut was at even-par 142. Because more than 78 players made the cut, there will be a 54-hole cut Saturday for the top 70 and ties. Ottawas Brad Fritsch (64) finished the day tied for 18th place, while David Hearn (68) of Brantford, Ont., ended his day at 1-under par. Mike Weir (70) of Brights Grove, Ont., was at even par while Calgarys Stephen Ames did not make the cut. Robert Garrigus (63) and Jim Herman (66) were two shots behind, while Camilo Villegas shot 66 and was another shot behind at 8-under 134. Kevin Tway, son of former PGA champion Bob Tway, had a 65 and was among those at 135. Lurking five shots behind were the Japanese duo of Hideki Matsuyama (66) and Ryo Ishikawa (67). Koepka made most of his birdies with a wedge in his hand, and picked up two more birdies on the par 5s by missing eagle attemppts from about 12 feet. Ivan Rakitic Jersey. . He was at the same course at Q-school where Jordan Spieth failed to advance. Spieth started out on the Web.com Tour, did well enough in his PGA Tour starts to get some money and momentum, and wound up with a win, a PGA Tour card, a trip to the Tour Championship and a spot on the Presidents Cup team. Koepka, missing the amateur credentials and sponsor exemptions of Spieth, went a different direction. South Africa. Switzerland. Kenya. Kazakhstan. Much like the European Tour, its developmental circuit goes all over the world. Like the time in Kenya that his driver turned a 15-minute trip into over three hours, stopping on side streets along the way and making Koepka more nervous than he has been behind the wheel of his luxury courtesy car at CordeValle this week. Sure, he thought about how much more comfortable it would have been to try a Web.com Tour schedule mainly in America. But he wouldnt trade the experience. "Youre travelling the world at 23," Koepka said. "Thats good. And its a good experience playing overseas. I think youll see a lot more guys doing it. ... I think everybody wants to be a worldwide player. At least for me, thats what I want to be able to do -- play the European Tour and the PGA Tour. I just need to get established over here a little bit more." The tournament is only halfway over, though Koepka is surely helped by having won four times in the last year on the Challenge Tour in Europe. Herman also is on good form, though he can be excused if this doesnt feel like a PGA Tour opener. His off-season was one week. Herman played well late in the year but still didnt make it to the FedEx Cup playoffs. He played four of five weeks in the Web.com Tour Finals to earn his card back, and one week later, he was at CordeValle putting up rounds of 67-66 to assure himself a late tee time Saturday. The low round Friday came from Andres Gonzalez, who also could use a big week. Gonzalez thought he had his card wrapped up at the Web.com Tour Championship until Lee Williams made a 55-foot birdie putt on the last hole, and Andrew Loupe made a 5-foot par putt right behind him to knock Gonzalez out. Hes only in the Frys.com Open because he finished in the top 10 in the previous PGA Tour event in August. Gonzalez shot a 62 and was five shots out of the lead. Wholesale Jerseys 2020Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '

Vancouver Canucks forward Alex Burrows had a telephone hearing today with the NHL Department of Player Safety after his high check to the head of Montreal Canadiens defenceman Alexei Emelin. Darryl Dawkins Jersey . There was no penalty on the play in the second period, which finished moments later at the other end of the ice as Nick Bonino scored for the Canucks. Emelin missed the rest of the second period but returned for the third. I was trying to finish my check and my intent was not to hurt him, Burrows told reporters afterwards. Obviously you never want to hurt someone and Im glad he came back. Im not going to speculate on what people are going to say. My intent was not to hurt him. Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien was not pleased with the hit. We all saw the hit to the head on Emelin and instead of having a power play of five minutes the puck is in your own net, said the coach. That was a dirty hit to the head. Burrows has never been suspended over nine NHL seasons. The telephone hearing means the league can suspend him for no more than five games. Dario Saric Jersey .com) - The Grand Slam season will get underway Monday at the Australian Open in Melbourne, where a new champion will be crowned this year. Julius Erving Jersey .

Pat Coyle and Chris Hall have been voted into the National Lacrosse League Hall of Fame as inductees of the Class of 2014. Jerryd Bayless Jersey . Coyle becomes the first defenseman in league history to win induction while Hall was elected in his first year of eligibility. Coyle played 12 seasons in the league including seven seasons with the Toronto Rock from 1998-2004 and four years with the Colorado Mammoth from 2005-2008. The defender played in 156 career regular season games, recording 940 loose balls and 133 points. The Orangeville, Ontario native won the leagues Defensive Player of the Year Award in 2002, the first year in which the award was given. Coyles teams made it to the playoffs in 11 of his 12 seasons where he posted 12 points along with 116 loose balls in 18 games played and won five championships (Toronto 1999-2000, 2002-2003 and Colorado 2006) in six Championship Game appearances. Coyle currently serves as an associate head coach with the Mammoth. Hall served as a head coach in the league for 12 seasons, first with the Calgary Roughnecks from 2002-2007 before finishing his coaching career with the Vancouver Stealth franchise from 2009-2014. Halls 85 regular-season wins ranks third all-time behind Darris Kilgour (121) and Les Bartley (93). With an 11-6 career record in the postseason, Halls 11 playoff wins rank fourth all-time behind Bartley (22), Troy Cordingley (12) and Kilgour (12). In 2010, Hall became just the second coach in NLL history to win the Champions Cup with two different teams as he led the Stealth to its first-ever title after winning it all with Calgary in 2004. The Stealth reached the championship game in three of four seasons from 2010-2013 and Hall was a co-recipient of the 2010 NLL Head Coach of the Year award. Following his retirement from coaching at the end of the 2014 season, Hall enters his first year as Senior Advisor to the President with the Stealth. The five finalists for the Class of 2014 were selected last month by the leagues Hall of Fame Committee. The other three finalists included Jake Bergey and two automatically returning from last years ballot in Pat McCready and Kaleb Toth. JJ Redick Jersey . Ashton scored a hat trick -- giving him 13 goals in 16 AHL games this season -- to power the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Lake Erie Monsters in AHL action on Sunday. Nik Stauskas Jersey . With the win, the Marlies complete a three-game series sweep of the Admirals and move on to the second round of the Calder Cup playoffs. T.J. Brennan added an empty netter with less than 25 seconds remaining for his second of the playoffs.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Carolina Hurricanes were shut out in their most recent trip to the ice, but their offensive struggles are nowhere near as alarming as what is currently plaguing the Calgary Flames. The Canes look to bounce back after having their longest winning streak of the season halted as they host the Flames on Monday night. The Flames will not have Mike Cammalleri in their lineup after he suffered a concussion in the Flames 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. Carolina won the first four of their recent five-game win streak by one-goal margins, netting 14 goals in that span. Following a postponed game versus Buffalo due to weather, the Hurricanes routed the Toronto Maple Leafs 6-1 on Thursday, but saw their offense go cold in a 3-0 setback at Columbus the following night. Anton Khudobin made 21 saves for the Hurricanes, who were shut out for the third time this season and for the first time since Dec. 9. "The first period was like a chess match type of game for both teams," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "Nothing was going on, which we were quite happy with. "Then, one or two breakdowns and they capitalized. Theyre a good team. They play a good system. They dont give up much. We dont give up much either, but we werent able to sustain that second and third opportunity and capitalize." The Blue Jackets were able to slow down Canes forward Jeff Skinner, who went into the game with 17 goals in his previous 17 contests but couldnt find the back of the next on Friday despite a team-high seven shots on net. Skinner could get some help on Monday if captain Eric Staal can return from a lower-body injury that has sidelined him the past three games. Staal, who had played in 191 consecutive games, was able to return to practice on Sunday and has 10 goals and 35 points in 42 games this season. "Weve got too see how he responds to (Sunday). Dana Barros Jersey. We want to be smart," Muller told Carolinas website. "We have all the days off after that, so we want to make sure if hes ready to go (Monday), its nothing that sets him back." Carolina will now take on a Calgary team that has been in an offensive rut for the last two-plus weeks. The Flames have been outscored 13-1 over a three-game slide and 26-6 over their past eight games, a span in which they have been shut out five times while going 1-7-0. Calgary was nearly blanked again on Saturday versus the visiting Pittsburgh Penguins until Mikael Backlund scored at 11:29 of the third period in a 2-1 loss. Backlunds goal snapped a club-record 196-minute, 59-second scoring drought at home for the Flames. Reto Berra was solid in the loss with 24 saves. "I wasnt as good as the guy on the other side tonight," said Berra. "You know, the guys in front made some blocks and I was able to make some saves, but not enough." The Flames will play two straight and four of their next five on the road. Calgary didnt light up the lamp all that much in its first meeting with Carolina this season, but still managed a 2-1 home victory in overtime on Dec. 12. Chris Butler scored the winning goal with inside of four seconds left in the bonus frame, while Karri Ramo made 29 saves. That included a stop on Skinner during a third-period penalty shot. The Flames beat the Hurricanes for the sixth time in the past eight meetings, but have lost two straight in Carolina. Skinner had a goal and Justin Peters made 28 saves for Carolina. The Hurricanes activated forward Riley Nash off injured reserve on Saturday while sending forwards Zach Boychuk and Brett Sutter to the minors. Nash had missed the past five games with a lower-body injury and has four goals with six assists in 36 games this season. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '

PHILADELPHIA -- The NHL has suspended Philadelphia Flyers forward Zac Rinaldo for four games for an illegal check to the head. Alex Cappa Jersey . Rinaldo will miss the final four games of the regular season and will forfeit $15,384.60 in salary. He injured Buffalo Sabres defenceman Chad Ruhwedel in the third period of Sundays game. Ruhwedel will miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with a concussion. "Its unfortunate its for the remainder of the season," Rinaldo said Monday night. "Its just one of those hits that kind of slipped away from me. It was bad timing and a little vulnerability on his side of the puck, too. My bad and his bad at the same time." Rinaldo leads the Flyers with 153 penalty minutes. Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren called the suspension "harsh." M.J. Stewart Buccaneers Jersey .com) - Coming off a pair of tough losses last week, the Syracuse Orange will try to put an end to their first losing skid of the season when they pay a visit to the Maryland Terrapins at the Comcast Center on Monday night in Atlantic Coast Conference action. Ronald Jones II Jersey . Yet heading to New York, the Habs remain positive as it all comes down to the one main ingredient that the organization has built its team on - character.This is how they describe their version of the puck. "The Aalto Puck is made in the same material as a regular hockey puck and behaves in the same way on ice with one fundamental difference. It has a built in randomness, it doesnt bounce as a regular puck, it can, depending on how its hit, speed off in different ways and more importantly, by adding an element of chance its the most equal puck produced. Jason Pierre-Paul Buccaneers Jersey. Advantages are randomly given to either of the two competing teams. By adding the element of chance this small puck changes the big picture." To be honest, this will be a very hard idea to get past hockey purest, however evolutionary thinking always does cause a big stir in the beginning. Perhaps the puck should be part of the conversation. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '

Scott Cullen takes a look at the top stories from January 10th through January 16th, including All-Star Game rosters, Pekka Rinne hurt, numbers retired, Boston bouncing back and more. Kobe Bryant Lakers Jersey . ALL STARS As the NHL prepares to hold its All-Star weekend, January 24-25 in Columbus, the rosters were filled out, with 36 players joining the six voted-in starters -- Chicagos Corey Crawford, Duncan Keith, Brent Seabrook, Jonathan Toews, Patrick Kane and Buffalos Zemgus Girgensons. Also named to the All-Star game: Forwards: Patrice Bergeron, Sidney Crosby, Patrik Elias, Nick Foligno, Ryan Getzlaf, Claude Giroux, Ryan Johansen, Tyler Johnson, Phil Kessel, Anze Kopitar, Evgeni Malkin, Rick Nash, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Alex Ovechkin, Bobby Ryan, Tyler Seguin, Steven Stamkos, Vladimir Tarasenko, John Tavares, Jakub Voracek, Radim Vrbata Defence: Brent Burns, Dustin Byfuglien, Drew Doughty, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Justin Faulk, Mark Giordano, Erik Johnson, Kevin Shattenkirk, Ryan Suter, Shea Weber Goaltenders: Sergei Bobrovsky, Jimmy Howard, Roberto Luongo, Carey Price, Pekka Rinne. Then, with Howard and Rinne injured, Marc-Andre Fleury and Jaroslav Halak were selected to play in the game. The captains, for the draft proceedings of the event, will be Jonathan Toews and Nick Foligno, representing the host Columbus Blue Jackets. As with any All-Star proceeding, there is also the matter of which players were snubbed, or at least those that deserved the honour and, for whatever reason, were not selected. In the case of the NHL, trying to include a representative from every team leads to some dubious choices. So, who else might have warranted a spot? Up front, Joe Pavelski, Nicklas Backstrom, Filip Forsberg and Jamie Benn would all have a reasonable claim. On defence, P.K. Subban, Erik Karlsson and Alex Pietrangelo would not be out of place. They probably rectified a goaltending miss by including Marc-Andre Fleury, who is having the best year of his career. Braden Holtby or Craig Anderson might be the closest thing to a snub by the time we get through eight goaltenders already named to the game. RINNE HURT The frontrunner for the Vezina Trophy as the leagues best goaltender, and a viable Hart Trophy candidate as league MVP, Nashvilles Pekka Rinne is out for the next 3-5 weeks with a knee injury. While Rinne (29-6-2, 1.96 GAA, .931 SV%, .945 EV SV%) has been the best puckstopper in the league this season, and there is a notable drop-off in quality from Rinne to Carter Hutton and Marek Mazanec, the Predators have improved enough in other areas that they shouldnt be a complete wreck without Rinne. They have improved from a 48% possession team last season to nearly 53% this year, and have more scoring than they have in years past -- theyre 3.00 goals per game this season is their highest rate since 2006-2007 (3.24). Given the quality of their division, the Predators wont have to collapse to still lose their spot at the top of the Central, but they should be able to survive the next month or so without their best player this season. TEEMU TIME The Anaheim Ducks honoured Teemu Selanne, raising his No. 8 to the rafters. In 966 career games with the Ducks, Selanne scored 457 goals and 988 points and his two tours of duty with the Ducks (1995-2001 and 2005-2014) provided many of the finest moments of his career, including a Stanley Cup in 2007 and five seasons with at least 40 goals, leading the league in both 1997-1998 and 1998-1999. Over the course of his career, Selanne scored 684 goals (ranks 11th all-time) and accumulated 1457 points (ranks 15th) in 1451 games. On top of all that, Selanne is universally-praised by players and media alike as a great guy. Rave reviews all around for a future Hall of Famer. DOMINATOR HONOURED The Buffalo Sabres retired Dominik Haseks number 39, an honour that may seem a little overdue, given his importance to the franchise. Buffalo acquired Hasek from the Chicago Blackhawks for goaltender Stephane Beauregard and a fourth-round pick (which turned out to be Eric Daze) in 1992. He had two unremarkable seasons with the Sabres before emerging as the clubs starting goaltender in 1993-1994. From that season through 1998-1999, there was no goaltender on the planet that was in Haseks league and he nearly dragged the Sabres to a Stanley Cup in 1999. Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur were the closest to Hasek in save percentage over those years and they werent particularly close. Using Hockey References Goals Saved Above Average measure, Hasek saved more than 295 goals above average in that six-year span. Roy (140) and Brodeur (102), while great, were a long way from having that kind of impact. Following his time in Buffalo, Hasek had some good years with the Detroit Red wings, winning the Stanley Cup in 2002 and earning another Cup ring -- making four playoff starts as a 43-year-old -- in 2008. He last played professionally with Moscow Spartak in the KHL in 2010-2011, playing in 46 of 54 games as a 46-year-old. He was acrobatic, quirky, and the best goaltender in the world in the 1990s. BRUINS ARE BACK It wasnt the easiest first half of the season for the Boston Bruins, who had won 19 of 40 games as of January 4, struggling while they missed defenceman Zdeno Chara and centre David Krejci for stretches due to injuries. Now, however, the Bruins have won five straight, and have two regulation losses in their past 16 games, climbing into playoff position in the Eastern Conference -- something that was assumed before the season started, but had been cast into doubt as the Bruins failed to generate consistent results. Goaltender Tuukka Rask is playing better and the Bruins are relatively healthy, but theyve also received a boost in the form of 18-year-old rookie winger David Pastrnak, who had back-to-back two-goal games last week. Pastrnak somehow lasted until the 25th pick in last summers draft and he has already shown that he has high-end skill not befitting a late first-round pick. He had 27 points (10 G, 17 A) and 74 shots on goal in 24 AHL games, and managed one assist in an earlier five-game trial with the Bruins before he was loaned to the Czech team at the World Junior Hockey Championships. After scoring seven points (1 G, 6 A) in the World Juniors, Pastrnak returned to Boston, where hes taken up the right wing spot on a line with Milan Lucic and David Krejci. Its a lot to ask for an 18-year-old to play a signficant role on a contending team, but in his very small NHL sample, Pastrnak has passed the eye test and the analytics test, carrying better than 60% of shot attempts during 5-on-5 play. Even if hes not going to keep piling up two-goal games, he should be able to play a regular role with the Bruins for the rest of the season. VALUE PLAY Winnipeg signing free agent C Mathieu Perreault to a three-year, $9-million contract last summer is turning into one of the best decisions made by this franchise. The smallish centre, who has moved to play wing with Michael Frolik and Mark Scheifele, scored four goals in an 8-2 win over Florida Tuesday. Whats so remarkable is how dramatically Perreaults numbers jumped after a slow start to the year, as he opened the year with no goals and three assists in 19 games, then followed with 26 points (15 G, 11 A) in the next 25 games. All this production caught the attention of smart guys (and wise guys). THE WILD LIFE Coming into the season, expectations were relatively high for the Minnesota Wild, who lost in the second round of last years playoffs to the Chicago Blackhawks. They opened the year as a dominant possession team (a league-leading 57.3% score-adjusted Corsi in October), but their goaltending was a mess and its only become more of a problem now that the possession numbers have been in steady decline (50.3% since November 1). Prior to Thursdays 7-0 win at Buffalo, the Wild had two regulation wins in the previous 16 games and, falling out of the playoff race, speculation has been heating up about the future of head coach Mike Yeo. The biggest problem for the Wild, which affects Yeos job security, has been goaltending, as Darcy Kuemper, Niklas Backstrom and John Curry have combined to give the Wild the leagues worst save percentage (.898) during 5-on-5 play. As a result, the Wild traded a third-round pick to Arizona this week for Devan Dubnyk, who has rebounded after a miserable 2013-14 season. Even if Dubnyk does stabilize the situation in net for Minnesota, they are now seven points out of a playoff spot, so they are starting an uphill climb. FIRE SALE IN THE DESERT After the Coyotes dealt Dubnyk, reports surfaced that would be the first of several changes to come for a team with new ownership and virtually no chance at the playoffs. With no postseason on the horizon, its a given that pending unrestricted free agents like centre Antoine Vermette and defenceman Zbynek Michalek could be moved, but if the Coyotes decide to make defenceman Keith Yandle available, that would drive some interesting, high-stakes trade discussion. In any case, the Coyotes can focus on their future, which will include a high first-round pick in 2015 as well as prospects Max Domi and Christian Dvorak, who are thought of quite highly by some. CRAIGS LIST TSNs resident scout Craig Button offered up his top drafted NHL prospects, with Domi leading the way after his strong showing at the World Juniors. That might raise some eyebrows, given that Domi was the 12th overall pick in 2013, but there will be a lot of time for these players to establish their games, and values, at the NHL level. I know, as well as anyone, how rankings are not met with universal acceptance, but come on, Craig, wheres Pastrnak? (I kid.) CHANGING LEAFS The immediate returns for new Maple Leafs head coach Peter Horacheck have not been ideal. On one hand, the Leafs have gone from a 44% possession team under Randy Carlyle to 47.6% in five games under Horachek, but the Leafs have managed just one win and scored a total of eight goals in those five games. To be reasonable, expectations should not have been high for a struggling (and injured) Leafs team going to California, and they lived down to those expectations, but the fanbase isnt reveling in improved possession if they arent able to score or, at least once in a while, win.

It defies logic that, say, Roy, for all he has accomplished, has done a better coaching job in his very first NHL year than, Cup (and Olympic Gold Medal-winning)-champion coaches Julien or Babcock, who have wrung superlative results out of teams they have long coached.

TORONTO - The 2014 season is quickly becoming one to forget for Andre Durie. Cordarrelle Patterson Jersey . The Toronto Argonauts placed the veteran slotback on the six-game injured list Friday, effectively ending his season. Durie, 33, broke his right clavicle for a second time after diving for a pass at practice this week. Durie first broke the bone on July 5 in Torontos 48-15 home win over Saskatchewan. That forced him to miss seven games before returning for the Argos 40-33 road loss to Calgary on Sept. 13. Durie has 19 catches for 214 yards and a TD this season. Rookie Robert Gill will replace Durie in the Argos starting lineup Saturday afternoon when they host the Edmonton Eskimos. In other news, LB Shane Horton was released on Friday after requesting the move earlier this week. The team gave him time to think before making the move official. Trent Brown Jersey . Just ask Arsenal fans. However, Arsene Wenger has repeatedly told anyone willing to listen that finishing in that spot is more important than winning a cup competition. Kenny Britt Patriots Jersey . -- Jerry Rice Jr.TORONTO -- Alex Anthopoulos was prepared to stay the course with catcher J.P Arencibia, until he discovered the Toronto Blue Jays could make an upgrade behind the plate with free agent Dioner Navarro. The Jays officially parted way with Arencibia on Monday by declining to tender a contract offer to the fourth-year catcher. The move came after Anthopoulos signed Navarro to a two-year, US$8-million deal. "Dioner had a wonderful year last year in 240 at bats, and we think that theres some upside there, especially considering his age," the Blue Jays GM said on a conference call Tuesday. "We just think its a nice fit, and obviously well find out." Arencibia struggled through the worst season of career in 2013, with a .194 batting average, 21 home runs and 55 RBIs. The 27-year-old fan favourite, who began his Blue Jays career with so much promise -- homering on his first major-league pitch in 2010 -- struck out 148 times this past season, 15th most in Major League Baseball. Anthopoulos said he has no idea why Arencibia regressed so much last season. "I wish I did. I do think hes going to bounce back," Anthopoulos said. "He was a little banged up, and one thing about J.P., hes a very durable guy, very tough, plays through a lot of injuries. There was a time we almost put him on the (disabled list), he wanted to keep playing, he battled through it and grinded through it, and Ive seen him play with a broken hand and things like that. "But I really dont know, certainly we didnt expect him to have that type of year. .. Obviously hes very proud and has extreme pride in his job, and I think it may have just worn on him." Still, Anthopoulos said the decision to replace Arencibia wasnt made until the "last few weeks or so." The 29-year-old Navarro, a 10-year veteran from Venezuela, has served mostly as a backup but was an all-star with Tampa Bay in 2008. He hit .300 with a career-high 13 home runs in 89 games for the Chicago Cubs last season. He also had 34 runs batted in. "Navarro was someone who has pretty good contact rate, low strikeouts, prretty good on base skills, been able to take a walk and work the count," Anthopoulos said. Kenny Britt Jersey. "From a game-calling standpoint, the work that we did on him, everyone really raved about his game-calling, and how guys love throwing to him." Anthopoulos said Navarro -- whos also played for the New York Yankees, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and the Chicago Cubs -- is keen to get return to a starting role in the majors. "The fact that Dioner has played over a hundred games three times in his career, has been an all-star and is only 29, that certainly factored into the decision," he said. "Dioner is very motivated and very hungry to get back to being that everyday guy, he just hasnt had an opportunity to be the everyday guy since he left the Rays." The GM said he called Arencibia on Sunday night to let him know his plans. Through his struggles on the field, the catcher became a lightning rod for criticism this past season when the Jays were failing to live up to lofty pre-season expectations. The catcher lashed out on Twitter at Sportsnet analysts Dirk Hayhurst and Gregg Zaun over their negative comments. He then deleted his Twitter account, posting in a final three-part tweet to his some 145,000 followers: "Its unfortunate to see how words are twisted to make false stories. "I give way too much of myself to have others try and make me out to (be) something/someone Im not." "I will no longer be on twitter," he said. "Thanks to all the fans who support and praying for the others that hate. God bless." Anthopoulos said in the "grand scheme of things," the fact Arencibia vented his frustration on Twitter wasnt a big deal, and said there were never any off-field issues with the former Jays catcher. "I think he was probably one of our best guys in the community, always was available, always was a great supporter of the ball club, any time we had a need in the off-season," Anthopoulos said. "Theres a lot of things he did behind the scenes that no-one saw so to me he was outstanding." Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '

PITTSBURGH -- Wandy Rodriguez has been shut down for the remainder of the season by the Pittsburgh Pirates because of continuing pain in the left-handers pitching arm. Marcus Davenport Jersey . Rodriguez has been on the disabled list since June 6 with stiffness in his left forearm, though he was also found to have arthritis in his elbow when examined by orthopedist James Andrews last month. The Pirates made the move Saturday. Rodriguez made 12 starts for the Pirates this season, going 6-4 with a 3.59 ERA. The 34-year-old Rodriguez can become a free agent at the end of the season but also holds a $14 million player option in his contract to return in 2014. Patrick Robinson Saints Jersey .I get texts: Do you know Drake?

The seventh-seeded Murray got past Kazakhstans Andrey Golubev 6-1, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, while the fifth-seeded Ferrer cruised to a 6-4, 6-3, 6-1 victory over Dutchman Igor Sijsling. The 2011 French Open semifinalist Murray missed last years Parisian major due to an injury. Ferrer reached his first Grand Slam final last year in Paris, doing so without dropping a set, then was simply outclassed by countrymate Rafael Nadal in a 6-3, 6-2, 6-3 rout. Meanwhile, towering Croat Ivo Karlovic, fresh off his runner-up finish in Dusseldorf, surprised 11th-seeded rising Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, 6-4, 7-5, 7-6 (7-4). The big-serving, 6-foot-10 Karlovic had won just two matches in eight previous appearances at Roland Garros. Dimitrov hadnt been past the third round in any of his three previous visits to the French capital, but had reached his first career Grand Slam quarterfinal earlier this year at the Australian Open. He also won a French Open tune-up last month in Bucharest and reached the semifinals at the Italian Masters, beating Karlovic in the second round in Rome. "It was a very tough task for me today, especially if everything was going his way," Dimitrov said. "I just couldnt find the rhythm, and I couldnt convert any of the little opportunities that I had in the match. So its something to obviously learn from, but in a way was one of those days that you cant control anything. It happens." Twelfth-seeded French star Richard Gasquett rolled past enigmatic Aussie Bernard Tomic, 6-2, 6-1, 7-5, while oft-injured one-time world No. DeMario Davis Jersey. 2 Tommy Haas, seeded 16th in Paris, was leading Estonian Jurgen Zopp 5-2 in the first set when the 36-year-old German retired with a right shoulder problem. Meanwhile, 19th-seeded South African Kevin Anderson got past Frenchman Stephane Robert, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4; American Jack Sock was leading 21st-seeded Nicolas Almagro 5-0 in the first set when the Spaniard retired with an injury; 23rd-seeded Frenchman Gael Monfils grounded Romanian Victor Hanescu 6-2, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2; and 24th-seeded Spaniard Fernando Verdasco held off Frenchman Michael Llodra 6-2, 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-3) on Day 3. The 34-year-old left-hander Llodra was appearing in his final French Open singles match and was honored with an on-court celebration on Court 1. Germanys Philipp Kohlschreiber, who beat Karlovic for the title in Dusseldorf on Saturday and is seeded 28th in Paris, thumped Spains Pere Riba, 7-5, 6-4, 6-1, and 32nd-seeded Italian Andreas Seppi also eased past Colombias Santiago Giraldo in three sets on Tuesday. Former world No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt lost in the first round at the French for a third straight year, as Argentine Carlos Berlocq grounded the two-time Grand Slam champ, 3-6, 6-2, 6-1, 6-4. Hewitt hasnt reached a French Open quarterfinal since 2004. Several other men advanced to the second round, including Argentine Juan Monaco, Uzbekistans Denis Istomin, Aussie Marinko Matosevic and Frenchman Axel Michon, who outlasted American Bradley Klahn, 6-1, 6-7 (4-7), 5-7, 6-1, 6-4, in 3 hours, 43 minutes. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '

SAN FRANCISCO -- While chatter has swirled about Jim Harbaughs future with the 49ers in recent weeks, wide receiver Anquan Boldin has secured his status in San Francisco -- and even credited the coach for his decision to come back. Jaire Alexander Packers Jersey . The franchise gave him a few million other reasons, too. The 49ers signed Boldin to a two-year, $12 million contract with $9 million guaranteed Monday, keeping quarterback Colin Kaepernicks top option from last season and one of Harbaughs favourites from hitting free agency. "Hes a guy I had a real good relationship with," Boldin said about Harbaugh on a conference call with reporters. "Me and him were able to talk about anything. And I just like his demeanour, the way he approaches the game. Hes a guy that wants to win. Im the exact same way. So I think we mesh pretty good." Boldin, who was set to become a free agent next week, led San Francisco with 85 catches for 1,179 yards to go with seven touchdowns last season. He was traded from John Harbaughs Ravens to the 49ers in the off-season for a sixth-round pick after helping Baltimore win the Super Bowl. While the salary cap strapped Ravens failed to make the playoffs, the 49ers finished 12-4 during the regular season -- in part because Boldin filled the void created by an off-season torn right Achilles tendon that sidelined Michael Crabtree for the first 11 games. Boldins performances earned him the Bill Walsh Award, given to the team MVP by the coaches. Boldins deal locked up one of San Franciscos top off-season priorities and briefly quieted the questions about Harbaughs future with the 49ers after reports surfaced in recent weeks about the team fielding trade offers for the coach from the Cleveland Browns, a possible rift with general manager Trent Baalke and even problems with players. Boldin said he doesnt pay much attention to NFL news in the off-season because hes focused on his family and charitable foundation and "at this time of year, people grab at whatever." But he admitted hed been following the Harbaugh saga. "When I did hear about it, I kind of laughed," Boldin said. "I dont think anybody in our locker room has an issue with coach Harbaugh. The way our locker room is built, we have an open-door policy. If anybody has a concern or wants to voice their opinion, theyre more than welcome to. "There have been times when we have voiced our concerns as players, and coach Harbaugh has listened to us and taken into consideration how we felt as players. So I dont think theres any rift between players and coaches, particularly coach Harbaugh." Boldins return to San Francisco was not all that surprising. Harbaugh said at last weeks NFL Scouting Combine that the franchise was determined to re-sign the wide receiver, and Boldin had repeatedly said he wanted to come back. The sides hashed out the deal before Boldin could become a free agent for the first time in his 11-year career. "We are pleased that Anquan has chosen to continue his career as a 49er," Baalke said in a statement. "He is a consummate professional whose love and respect for the game provide a tremendous example for all players. Anquan has been a very productive player throughout his career and we look forward to his future contributions to our team and community." Boldins transition to the 49ers seemed seamless. Boldin, now 33 years old, was at his best in his debut for San Francisco when he caught 13 passes for 208 yards and a touchdown in a 34-28 win over Green Bay. He then capped his season with his second-best game with nine catches for 149 yards and a score in a Week 17 win over Arizona that clinched the fifth seed for San Francisco. In three playoff games, Boldin had 16 catches for 227 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers lost in the NFC title game to the eventual Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Boldin, drafted by Arizona in the second round out of Florida State in 2003, played seven seasons for the Cardinals and three for the Ravens. The three-time Pro Bowler has 857 receptions for 11,344 yards and 65 touchdowns in his career, which he believes is far from finished. "Physically, I feel fine," he said. "I feel as if I can play five more years. So thats not a problem for me. I feel great. But well see how it goes." AP Sports Writer Janie McCauley contributed to this story. Oren Burks Jersey . It looked like being another miserable day for Moyes when Ashley Westwood put Villa in front from a 13th-minute free kick. But Rooney headed United level seven minutes later, and the striker netted his 16th of the season for the struggling champions from the penalty spot before halftime. JK Scott Jersey . -- Brandon Hope stopped 46 shots and Kurtis MacDermid scored with 27 seconds remaining in overtime as the Owen Sound Attack edged the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 5-4 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action.PORTLAND, Ore. -- Just when it appeared Portland was cruising to a victory that would avoid its first three-game losing streak of the season, Torontos DeMar DeRozan put a scare into the Trail Blazers. Holding a 16-point lead with 7:41 remaining, Portland suddenly had to mount a rally of its own, hitting four free throws during the final 11.8 seconds to pull out a 106-103 win Saturday night. LaMarcus Aldridge had 27 points and 15 rebounds and Damian Lillard hit a go-ahead free throw with 11.8 seconds left to help end the Blazers two-game losing streak. Lillard and Wesley Matthews scored 21 points apiece for Portland and Nicolas Batum added 18. DeRozan was a one-man wrecking crew down the stretch, scoring 30 of his 36 points during the second half. DeRozan, who also had 12 assists, scored 16 points during the third quarter and 14 in the fourth. The fourth-year All-Star guard had a hand in 22 of Torontos 26 second-half baskets, with 12 field goals and 10 assists. Kyle Lowry added 23 points for Toronto. The dramatic win helped Portland end its worst offensive slump of the season. The Blazers, the NBAs top scoring team at 108.4 points, came into Saturday having scored season lows of 81 and 88 points in their past two games. Aldridge said there wasnt a sense of relief despite the hair-raising finish. "We know that we had control from the beginning so it was just about staying solid the whole game and trying to close it out. We did that," Aldridge said. Matthews said after losing back-to-back games, to Golden State and Memphis, "this was a must-win game, and that was the sense of urgency we took into shootaround and the urgency we start the game with." DeRozan and the Raptors nearly spoiled Portlands breakout game. Trailing 57-40 at halftime and by as many as 19 points during the second half, Toronto made a prolonged charge at Portland. During the third quarter, the Raptors got as close as six points before Portland hit four 3-pointers during a four-minute stretch to regain a double-digit lead. Then DeRozan led Toronto on a fourth-quarter rally, when a 16-2 run over a five-minute stretch gave the Raptors a 103-102 lead on two free throwws by DeRozan. Josh Jackson Jersey. "He was voted an All-Star for a reason. Hes capable of getting hot and carrying a team," Portland coach Terry Stotts said. Despite the near-comeback, Toronto coach Dwane Casey said the Raptors were sunk from a poor first half. "It wasnt us. We picked it up in the second half, but you cant spot a good team like Portland that many points and expect to survive," Casey said. With Portland trailing for the first time in the game, Lillard went on the offensive, drawing a foul while driving to the basket with 11.8 seconds left. Lillard hit both free throws to give the Blazers the lead, then Portlands defence stepped up when Matthews forced DeRozan into a turnover. Matthews said all he could think about during the final few minutes was making a play to stop DeRozan. "We blew a 20-point lead, and we did a similar thing when we played out there in Toronto. DeRozan made tough plays, the rest of the team make tough plays. We just got the timely stop we needed," Matthews said. Batum hit two free throws with 0.1 seconds left to seal the win. At the games outset, the Blazers got their sluggish offence going by turning up their defence, holding Toronto to 35 per cent shooting (14 of 40) during the first half. Aldridge kick-started Portlands performance with 12 points and 11 rebounds during the first quarter to stake Portland to a 31-19 lead. Helped by two Portland technical fouls, Toronto went on a 10-2 run midway through the second quarter to cut the deficit to 43-34. But Lillard went to work, punctuating a 12-point second quarter with a driving windmill dunk to put the Blazers in front 50-36. NOTES: Toronto reserve guard Greivis Vasquez missed Saturdays game with flu-like symptoms. Vasquez, acquired from Sacramento in a Dec. 9 trade, is averaging eight points and 4.5 rebounds a game for the Raptors. . Aldridges 11 first-quarter rebounds is one short of the franchise record for a quarter, held by three different players. . Portland is one of five NBA teams not to lose three consecutive games this season. . The Blazers won their sixth consecutive game in Portland over Toronto. The Raptors last won in Portland in 2006. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '

RENTON, Wash. Bo Scarbrough Cowboys Jersey . -- The Seattle Seahawks have added wide receiver Percy Harvin to the 53-man roster. Mondays move was expected as Seattle had to add Harvin to the active roster or he would have to remain on the physically unable to perform list for the remainder of the season. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said Harvin is expected to practice this week, meaning his Seahawks debut could come Sunday against Minnesota. If hes not ready, Harvin could be inactive on game day and his debut could come after the Seahawks bye week when Seattle hosts New Orleans on Dec. 2. The Seahawks announced Harvin had returned to practice on Oct. 21. Seattle released defensive tackle Michael Brooks to clear a roster spot for Harvin. Terrell Owens Jersey . The bout served as the headlining matchup of Saturdays "UFC Fight Night: Brown vs. Silva" event, which took place at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati. It was Silva who looked well on his way to victory in the early going, delivering a pair of crushing kicks to the body that sent Brown crashing to the floor, doubled over in pain. Allen Hurns Jersey . - The width of Alec Martinezs shin guard was the difference between the Los Angeles Kings and the Anaheim Ducks in their playoff series opener. BOSTON -- Rubby De La Rosa is sure making things look easy in Fenway Park. Hes also making it a little harder for the Boston Red Sox to decide what to do when other pitchers are ready to come off the disabled list. De La Rosa matched his first career Fenway start with another seven impressive innings to outpitch Kevin Correia and A.J. Pierzynski had a sacrifice fly, lifting the Red Sox to a 1-0 win over the Minnesota Twins Monday night. "I know its been 14 shutout innings here at Fenway," Boston manager John Farrell said. "Whether he feels the energy here in this ballpark or is comfortable on our mound, thats clearly the case. When a guy possess that type of arm and that repertoire, as long as he throws strikes, hes going to have the ability to get some of the best hitters in the game." De La Rosa (2-2) gave up only a single in the third inning as he combined with three relievers on a three-hitter. He walked three and fanned three. In his other Fenway start, on May 31, De La Rosa also pitched seven shutout innings, holding Tampa Bay to four hits. He had given up four runs over 5 2-3 innings in each of his last two starts -- both on the road. The 25-year old right-hander, acquired in Bostons salary dump deal that sent Adrian Gonzalez, Josh Beckett and Carl Crawford to the Los Angeles Dodgers in August of 2012, is taking injured starter Clay Buchholzs spot in the rotation. Mike Napoli helped cut down a runner trying to score with a heads up play in a Red Sox victory that came after a pair of one-run losses. Boston is 9-15 in one-run games. It was Bostons first 1-0 win at home since May 18, 2011, over the Detroit Tigers. "I feel comfortable. I feel at home," De La Rosa said. "The field has helped me a little bit, the mound too" Both Buchholz and left-hander Felix Doubront are currently on the road back, making rehab starts. De La Rosa isnt worrying about what choice the club will need to make. "I dont want to think about that," he said, smiling. Andrew Miller struck out the only batter he faced, Burke Badenhop got two outs and Koji Uehara three outs to remain perfect in 15 save chances. He extended his streak to 31 straight saves over the past two regular seasons. "He was goodd. Jihad Ward Jersey. The guy throws mid 90s and has a changeup like that, a breaking ball every once and a while, but changeups, 3-2 changeups," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said about De La Rosa. "He was pretty good. He was tough. Our guy was tough, too, threw the ball very well. We had opportunities -- I think we made one baserunning mistake that you never know what might happen after that." Correia (3-8) gave up five hits, walking one and striking out two in six innings. The right-hander pitched six shutout innings in his last start, earning the win at Toronto. "That guy was tough," Correia said. "We had an opportunity early but after that he was real tough. I put us in a situation where we were in the game and thats all I can really do." The Twins have lost three straight. Badenhop loaded the bases, but struck out Brian Dozier to end the eighth. The Red Sox moved ahead 1-0 in the fifth on Pierzynskis sacrifice fly after Daniel Nava singled and advanced on Stephen Drews single. Bostons Dustin Pedroia had a single and has reached safely in all 29 career starts against the Twins. Heads up defence by Napoli kept the Twins from scoring in the third. San Fuld drew a leadoff walk and stole second. Danny Santana then singled to centre. Napoli cut off the throw home, with Fuld holding at third, and caught Santana in a rundown. But, just he ran toward Santana, Napoli turned and fired home, catching Fuld in a rundown where he was eventually tagged out. NOTES: Buchholz, on the 15-day DL with a hyperextended right knee, is scheduled to make his second rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday. ... Red Sox 3B Will Middlebrooks, on the DL and recovering from a fractured right index finger, and OF Shane Victorino, on the DL for the second time this season with a strained right hamstring, are both also on rehab assignments with Pawtucket. Farrell said before the game that he hopes to get Victorino back on the upcoming West Coast trip, which begins Thursday in Oakland. ... Minnesota INF Eduardo Nunez missed his second straight with a sore hamstring. ... Kendrys Morales went 0 for 4 after hitting safely in his first six games since signing with the Twins on June 8. ... Badenhop has pitched 15 2-3 consecutive scoreless innings. Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Wholesale NFL Womens JerseysWholesale Jerseys 2019 Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Cheap Stitched Jerseys Wholesale NFL Gear ' ' '
