The City of Hamilton announced on Monday that the Tiger-Cats new stadium will not be ready for the first two games that it was supposed to host on July 26 and 31. Josey Jewell Broncos Jersey . The Tiger-Cats, who are playing their first three games of the season on the road, were scheduled to open Tim Hortons Field against the Ottawa Redblacks on July 26. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers were to visit for the second game five days later. "After holding our home pre-season game on campus last month, we know that we can deliver an outstanding entertainment experience at McMaster," said Tiger-Cats CEO Scott Mitchell in a statement. In the coming weeks, we will have greater certainty regarding our August 16 game, but the builders remain adamant that Tim Hortons Field will be ready no later than Labour Day. While we are disappointed our fans will have to wait to visit our incredible new stadium, we know the world-class experience provided at Tim Hortons Field will exceed everyones expectations when it is complete."  "There was a continuing effort to try to make a solution work and bring some solutions forward, but at the end of the day it came down to most importantly was it going to be safe, if so if they could get a temporary situation settled, what was the experience going to be like and the answer was clearly it wasnt going to be as good as we needed it to be," Mitchell later said on TSN Drive with Dave Naylor. The Ticats announced the two relocated home contests will be played at Ron Joyce Field at McMaster University in Hamilton. Last year, the Ticats played their entire season at the University of Guelph while the new stadium was under construction. In a statement, the City of Hamilton said the new building "will not be safe and ready for occupancy by (July 26 and 31)". Hamiltons next chance to open the stadium will be Saturday, August 16 against the Calgary Stampeders. Tim Hortons Field will also host the Pan and Parapan American Games next summer.

MONTREAL - Andrei Markov is staying with the only NHL club he has ever known. Harold Landry Titans Jersey . The 35-year-old defenceman agreed to terms of a US$17.25-million, three-year contract extension with the Montreal Canadiens on Monday. Markov was due to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. He said on a conference call that signing a new deal with Montreal was his first priority. "I knew before the season was over Id like to stay with the Montreal Canadiens, so Im happy the deal was done and Im looking forward now. I feel like Im at home here. I feel comfortable. Id like to stay for the rest of my career. Ive never known (free agency), but it doesnt matter. Im happy with that deal." Markov will earn the same salary, $5.75 million per season, that he made in each of his last two contracts over the past seven years. As a player 35 or over, he is guaranteed the full amount of his new deal. "We are very happy to have secured a long term agreement with Andrei," general manager Marc Bergevin said in a statement. "He is an important part of our group of core players. "He is healthy, shows a very good work ethic and has great leadership skills. He plays big minutes against the top opponents, and game-changing defencemen of his calibre are hard to find." Markov will be 38 when the deal expires after the 2016-17 season, but feels it is too early to say if it will be his last contract. There were fears that his career was over when a succession of knee injuries limited him to only 65 games over three years from 2009-10 to 20011-12, but he played all 48 games of the lockout-shortened 2012-13 campaign and missed only one regular season game this season. He had seven goals and 36 assists and was plus-12 this season, while getting a team-high 25:14 of ice time per game. He added a goal and nine assists in 17 playoff games as the Canadiens reached the Eastern Conference final. He also played for Russia at the Sochi Olympics. While he has slowed in a recent years, the Voskresensk, Russia native combines a solid defensive game with first-rate passing and playmaking skills from the point on power plays. "It wasnt easy when I had injuries, but I always stayed positive," Markov said. "The last two years I felt good. My health is good. I enjoy the game like I used to. Im looking forward to next season." Markov holds Russian and Canadian citizenship, having become a Canadian citizen in 2010. He was drafted in the sixth round, 162nd overall, by Montreal in 1998. He made his NHL debut in 2000. In 765 regular season games, he has 98 goals and 344 assists. His best seasons were 2007-08, when he had 16 goals and 58 points and 2008-09, when he had 12 goals and 64 points. He was the teams second potential free agent to sign ahead of July 1. Last week, forward Dale Weise inked a two-year contract that pays $1.025 million per season. Bergevin now faces negotiations with potential restricted free agents P.K. Subban and Lars Eller, while potential UFAs include captain Brian Gionta and defenceman Mike Weaver. Luke Falk Jersey . Jagr had a goal and two assists, Andy Greene scored 43 seconds into overtime and Marek Zidlicky had two goals as the Devils rallied past the Washington Capitals 5-4 Saturday night. Luke Falk Titans Jersey . As if the individual strands of grey hair or the increasing amount of joint pain werent reminders enough, the impending end of Jeters career is a slap-in-the-face indicator of a generations fleeting youth.ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- Eric Berry left Chiefs practice on Thursday after hurting his right ankle, the second injury that the Pro Bowl safety has sustained so far in training camp. Berry dislocated his finger in an earlier practice. It was unclear what happened to Berry during one of the early sessions of the days workout at Missouri Western. He walked gingerly to the tent next to the field and was checked on by trainers, and then talked with other team officials on the sideline before leaving on a cart. Berry was able to put weight on the leg, but was noticeably limping, and Chiefs coach Andy Reid said he was still awaiting word on the severity of the injury. "Its no Achilles, its no ligament tear," Reid said. "Well have to see." Starting cornerback Marcus Cooper also left practice Thursday with a slight hamstring injury, compounding problems for a Chiefs secondary that was already thin coming into camp. The Chiefs allowed free safety Kendrick Lewis to depart in free agency, and released Pro Bowl cornerback Brandon Flowers in what amounted to a cost-saving move. They also saw contributors such as Quuintin Demps find homes with other teams, content to patch the holes mainly from within. Rashaan Evans Jersey. . One of the players they were counting on to compete for the safety job was Sanders Commings, who missed his rookie season after breaking his collarbone in training camp. But he broke a bone in his right foot while getting juked to the ground by running back Jamaal Charles on Wednesday. Reid said after Thursdays workout that Commings would be undergoing surgery. Asked whether theres any timetable for his return, Reid said: "I dont know." "Well see," he said. "Normally if you break a bone it takes a while." The Chiefs have 18 defensive backs in camp, though several of them have been banged up. Along with the injuries to Berry, Cooper and Commings, cousins David Van Dyke and DeMarcus Van Dyke have been missing practice, and rookie Phillip Gaines recently returned from a head injury. "That happens," Reid said. "It happens as you go through camp, your legs get tired, you get those strains, those tight hamstrings. Well be fine. Well push through it." China Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

Some things just dont belong together, these are two of them. Detroit Tigers Poutine Dog Another team who decided to take two things that, on their own, are delicious, and smash them together in some weird life-threatening science experiment.

Niklas Mattsson of Sweden was second at 87.50 and Torgeir Bergrem of Norway third at 83.00. Charles Reid of Tremblant, Que., was fifth at 80.50. "There were three Canadians in the final and I absolutely had to be in the top two to better my chances to go to the Olympics," said Parrot. "I definitely had an advantage being the top qualifier. I was able to watch the others and I decided to put in my big run that I had been practising all week." Conditions were a factor on Sunday with a steady snowfall and foggy conditions on the hills north of Quebec City. "I really like riding when it snows a lot, Im able to focus better," said Parrot, now with three World Cup medals. gold silver and bronze. "Still the level of competition will be higher at the Games and Ill have to pprepare for that hopefully. Axel Witsel Belgium Jersey. " Reid was also delighted with his result.

DENVER -- Frank Morales didnt try to paint corners or make perfect pitches. Willy Caballero Argentina Jersey . Instead, his strategy was relatively simple: Just pitch the ball and see what happens. In this instance, a lot of good things. Morales was masterful on the mound as he outdueled Madison Bumgarner, leading the Colorado Rockies to a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday night. "Frankies a tough competitor," manager Walt Weiss said. "He was absolutely huge tonight." Morales (2-1) knew it was his night when he unleashed his first sinker and it danced all over the place. He decided right then and there that he wasnt going to be too fine with his splitter or his cutter or even his sinker, just let the pitch do what it naturally does. The hard-throwing lefty allowed five hits over seven innings, which matches the longest outing of his career. His only mistake was a hanging slider to Hunter Pence in the fifth, which he hit for a homer. "I wanted to make sure the hitter is uncomfortable with my pitches," Morales said. Bumgarner (2-2) was nearly as effective as Morales, his only slipups on fastballs to Troy Tulowitzki and Nolan Arenado, whos solo shot in the fifth put the Rockies ahead for good. Bumgarner allowed nine hits in eight innings. It was the first complete game by a Giants starter in 2014 and third of Bumgarners career. "Im not frustrated for myself. We should be winning all these games right now, but just going through a rough patch," said Bumgarner, whose team has dropped five of six. "Its just about getting out of it as quick as you can." Morales hasnt fared all that well against San Francisco in his career, entering the game with a 0-3 mark and a 6.57 ERA. But he handcuffed the Giants most of the game. He worked his way into a jam in his seventh and final inning when he allowed a two-out double to his counterpart, Bumgarner. Morales struck out Angel Pagan with a sinking cutter -- his 99th pitch of the night -- to end the threat. Morales pumped his fist and let out a scream before heading toward the dugout. "All game I was throwing only fastballs away to (Pagan)," Morales explained. "I was like, OK, its time to throw my cutter down and in. Hes not looking for that pitch." No, he wasnt. Pagan wasnt the only Giant guessing at Morales assortment of pitches. "Morales, hes just got good stuff," said Pence, who hit his second homer of the season. "A lot of life on his fastball." Things got a little shaky for Colorado in the eighth, when the Giants had runners on first and second with one out. Rex Brothers was summoned and enticed Pablo Sandoval to hit into a double play to quell the rally. Same thing with the ninth, when LaTroy Hawkins took over after Brothers got the first out of the inning. Hawkins walked pinch hitter Brandon Crawford and allowed a single to Gregor Blanco, who was also pinch hitting. Hector Sanchez, the third straight pinch hitter, struck out and Pagan bounced out to short to end the comeback bid. Arenado hit a solo shot into the seats in left to extend his hitting streak to a career-best 13 games. Hes hitting .365 during the streak, with two homers and six RBIs. Tulowitzki flashed his fielding skills in the top of the fourth and hitting proficiency in the bottom half. With runners at first and second and one out, the smooth-fielding shortstop dove in the hole to snare Joaquin Arias grounder, quickly getting up and throwing to second for a force out. That prevented a potential run from scoring. Tulowitzki then caught Ehire Adrianzas shallow fly to left to get the Rockies out of the sticky situation. Leading off in the bottom of the frame, Tulowitzki homered to left-centre. It was his third homer of the season. Mixing a 93-mph fastball with a late-moving cutter, Bumgarner kept the Rockies off balance most of the night in a hard-luck loss. "Bum pitched great. He did a real nice job," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said. "Complete game, two runs in this ballpark. Thats a nice effort." NOTES: Adrianza wore jersey No. 6 instead of No. 53. ... The last Giants starter to throw a complete game in a loss was Barry Zito on June 18, 2010, at Toronto. ... RHP Matt Cain (0-3) searches for his first win of the season in the series finale Wednesday. The Rockies will throw RHP Tyler Chatwood (1-0). ... The Rockies have won five of six. ... The previous time Morales pitched seven innings was June 28, 2012, at Seattle when he was with Boston. Marcos Rojo Jersey . Less than 24 hours later, in the same arena, he tried to recreate the magic of his all-time favourite player. Hilliard scored a career-high 26 points and No. Diego Maradona Jersey . However, it wasnt a problem on Monday night. Evgeni Nabokov made 23 saves for his 56th career shutout in the New York Islanders 3-0 win over the Detroit Red Wings on Monday night.IRVING, Texas - Dallas running back Joseph Randle says he made a huge mistake when he was arrested on a shoplifting charge that led to a fine from the Cowboys, but no suspension.Randle was charged with a Class B misdemeanour of theft between $50 and $500 after he was accused of taking $123 worth of cologne and underwear from a department store at a suburban Dallas mall on Monday.Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Randle would be fined significantly but would play Sunday against the New York Giants.Randle met with Garrett on Tuesday and addressed his teammates before practice Wednesday. He said he appreciated their support.They know people mess up, Randle said. Im just trying to take full responsibility and really just move on from it.According to the arrest report, Randle was caught on video placing items later identified as a tester bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne and a two-pack of Polo underwear into a Dillards bag after making a purchase at the store at Stonebriar Centre, about 30 miles north of Dallas.The 22-year-old Randle was stopped by a security guuard in the parking lot and later told a police officer that when he saw the old guy, referring to the security guard, he thought to himself, All right, yall got me. Cristian Pavon Jersey. The arrest came a day after one of Randles best games in two seasons with Dallas in a 30-23 victory against Super Bowl champion Seattle. He had a 38-yard run and a key tackle on a late kickoff.Well, I really just made a huge mistake. I disappointed a lot of people who really care about me, like my brothers on the team, coaches, this whole organization, Randle said. I let a lot of people down. Im just going to try my best to make it up to them.Quarterback Tony Romo said he had talked to Randle.He obviously wants to make better decisions in the future and I think that the way that he sounds, he will, Romo said.

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. Andres Iniesta Jersey . -- Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Clayton Kershaw allowed two runs and six hits in five innings during Wednesday nights injury rehabilitation stint with the Double-A Chattanooga Lookouts. A 29-pitch first inning kept Kershaw from being dominant, but he still finished with nine strikeouts. "I would like to have gotten through six or seven innings, but I had a good time working with these guys," Kershaw said. "Its tough when pitch counts are in the back of your mind. Obviously the main goal of why I was here was to get my pitch count up and be ready for 100-plus pitches in the big leagues. "At the same time, youre trying to compete, too. Fortunately for me, I am kind of done with that and can go pitch now." Kershaw threw 86 pitches Wednesday after tossing 56 Friday during his first rehab stint at Rancho Cucamonga of the Class A California League, when he allowed two hits in five scoreless innings. He opened this season getting a win for the Dodgers over Arizona in Australia on March 22 but went on the disabled list for the first time in his career several days later with a strained upper back. "Ive learned I dont like it," Kershaw said of his DL stint. "As much as you try and be a part of this team, our team is playing right now while Im in Chattanooga. Its a weird process for me, and you kind of feel isolated a little bit. Hopefully I never have to do it again." Kershaw said he feels healthy but didnt know when he would be joining his big-league teammates. John Andreoli drew a leadoff walk for the Smokies in the first inning, and Dustin Geiger drove in the first run off Kershaw with a two-out double to left. Geiger singled to left in the fifth inning to score Andreoli again. Kershaws appearance resulted in a sellout crowd of 6,318. "I think its pretty great for this city to get to see Clayton Kershaw, one of the great pitchers in the game doing a rehab assignment," Dodgers player development director DeJon Watson said. "Its a great opportunity for them to see our overall brand of baseball and having Clayton Kershaw as a model of what we do from an organizational standpoint. Were trying to get him in the best position to get him prepared to get him back in the big leagues, and coming here kind of worked out the best. "The competition level is pretty good here, and he was forced to execute good pitches in key counts." Marco Asensio Jersey . LOUIS -- The St. David Silva Jersey . Joining him in this years class were Switzerlands Patrick Huerlimann and Norways Eigil Ramsfjell. The announcement was made at the world mens curling championship at Capital Indoor Stadium in China. NEW YORK -- A wet field gave the New York Yankees one weird win. Brett Gardner hit a tiebreaking homer off All-Star ace Yu Darvish, and New York beat the Texas Rangers 2-1 Wednesday night in a rain-shortened game called in the fifth inning under bizarre circumstances. Once the rain stopped, the grounds crew did its best to dry out the field. But both managers expressed concern about players getting hurt on the soft basepaths, and the game was called after an unusual delay that lasted 1 hour, 49 minutes. "The field was just not playable," umpire crew chief Dale Scott told a pool reporter. During the delay, the last-place Rangers reached an agreement to trade closer Joakim Soria to Detroit for minor league pitchers Jake Thompson and Corey Knebel. David Phelps (5-4) pitched out of a jam just before the storm, and Francisco Cervelli doubled twice to help the Yankees win for the fifth time in six games on a 10-game homestand following the All-Star break. Chase Headley had a double in his first start for New York after he was acquired in Tuesdays trade with San Diego. Phelps gave up five hits in his first career complete game. After a one-out triple by Leonys Martin in the fifth, the right-hander retired Chris Gimenez on a foul popup and struck out Rougned Odor. Phelps and Cervelli pumped their fists as they headed toward the dugout -- perhaps knowing how important that last out might be, making the game official with heavy rain in the forecast. Play was halted with one out in the bottom of the fifth, and the grounds crew struggled mightily to pull the tarp through the mud as a heavy downpour soaked the field. It appeared the teams were ready to resume at one point, but managers Joe Girardi and Ron Washington were worried about more injuries to their banged-up teams. "Neither one of us can afford to lose another player on the DL because of conditions players shouldnt be on," Girardi said. After much discussion with the umpires and head groundskeeper Dan Cunningham, a light rain returned and the tarp was put back on the field. Less than 10 minutes later, the game was stopped for good -- giving the Yankees the victory. "What made me complain was because of them not being able to get the tarp on the field," Washington said, adding he had never seen a similar situation in his career. "This game shouldnt come to us losing it. It should have been suspended." But there was no avenue for a protest, Washington acknowledged. New York lost a rain-shortened game to the Orioles on July 13, the last day before tthe All-Star break. Sergio Busquets Jersey. "We lost in Baltimore because of Mother Nature. We won tonight because of Mother Nature. That just happens in our game," Girardi said. Darvish (9-6) allowed four hits and threw 67 pitches in his second complete game of the year. He struck out five and walked none. When the rain started, it took 13 minutes and three tries for the grounds crew to drag the soaked tarp over a drenched infield. Bat boys, clubhouse attendants and security guards in clear ponchos rushed out to help. One stumbled and briefly got trapped underneath. It took more than 30 men to finally finish the job, bringing a roar from the crowd. Only 15 minutes later, the rain had stopped and workers removed the tarp. But the playing surface was so wet, it took about 50 minutes to dry and prepare the field. A public-address announcement informed fans the game was scheduled to resume at approximately 10:05 p.m. But as Darvish headed back to the mound and other players warmed up, Girardi stalked around near first base testing the surface. He motioned for an audience, and the huddle that ensued included both managers, Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux and Cunningham, who appeared to be doing much of the talking. The umpires and grounds crew headed back underneath the stands, and Texas players milled around in front of their dugout for about 20 minutes waiting for word. Darvish flipped a ball, and even pawed at the dirt near third base. When the rain started falling again around 10:25 p.m., the tarp was placed back over the infield. And that was it. Cervelli hit a leadoff double in the third and scored on Darvishs second career balk. Gardner followed with his 10th home run, the first time hes reached double digits in seven major league seasons. "Thats amazing. Hes been doing that for us the whole year," Cervelli said. Texas scored in the third on Odors double-play grounder after consecutive singles by Martin and Chris Gimenez. NOTES: Rangers RF Alex Rios returned to the lineup after missing three games with a sprained right ankle. ... Washington said there are still "ghosts" at the new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009. "I think they just came across the street," he said. ... RHP Michael Pineda (right shoulder muscle) is scheduled to throw 30 pitches over two innings in a simulated game Thursday. ... There wont be any update on RHP Masahiro Tanaka (elbow) for another two weeks, Girardi said. New York is hoping Tanaka can avoid Tommy John surgery and return in September. ... CC Sabathia had his season-ending knee surgery. China Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback NFL Jerseys Outlet Wholesale Jerseys 2018 Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China ' ' '

Scott Cullen looks inside the numbers to break down all the NHL deals. Marco Reus Jersey . Big moves will get the full Numbers Game columns, but all other trades will get covered here: Numbers Game: St. Louis to Rangers; Callahan to Lightning Numbers Game: Canadiens make splash, add Vanek Numbers Game: Kings Bring in Gaborik Numbers Game: Oilers Send Hemsky to Senators Numbers Game: Wild Acquire Moulson from Sabres Numbers Game: Luongo returning to the Panthers Numbers Game: Blues get Miller, Ott from Sabres WEAVER to CANADIENS for a fifth-round pick in 2015 Montreal gets a veteran defenceman to shore up their blueline, most likely to take minutes away from Douglas Murray, who has been getting chewed up in possession terms. Mike Weaver is an undersized, 35-year-old right-shooting blueliner who generally plays hard minutes, with defensive zone starts against high quality of competition, and has averaged more than 20 minutes per game for Florida over the past four seasons. Weaver, an unrestricted free agent in the summer, is not flashy, with seven goals in 585 career games, but hes active in a defensive role -- one of 26 defencemen to have at least 90 hits and 90 blocked shots so far this season. Joining the Canadiens, Weaver wont have to play such difficult minutes, but he is an upgrade to fill a defensive and penalty killing role. The fifth-round pick doesnt offer huge value, about a 12% chance of yielding an NHLer, so Weavers departure from Florida is more about providing opportunity for younger defencemen to play. Weaver has most recently been partnered with Dmitry Kulikov, but Erik Gudbranson and Dylan Olsen should take on more minutes as the Panthers play for next season. PENNER to CAPITALS for a fourth-round pick Dustin Penner is a 31-year-old winger who has great size (6-foot-4, 242 pounds) and good hands. Hes a five-time 20-goal scorer whose play had declined over the past couple seasons, but was resurrected to some degree in Anaheim this year, spending much of his time skating on the top line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. Thats important because unless Penner is going to play with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom (and he could), hes not likely to have linemates that lead to the same kind of offensive production he had with Getzlaf and Perry. Penner has been an effective possession player throughout his career and, at his best, can be a real beast to handle down low in the offensive zone. Penner comes relatively cheaply, at a $2-million cap hit, and will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer. He can give the Capitals some secondary scoring and his presence certainly makes it easier for the Capitals to move out Martin Erat, if that long-rumoured transaction might actually take place. The Ducks decision to move out Penner leaves room for lots of speculation, as someone like Thomas Vanek might be a pretty sweet upgrade to play with Getzlaf and Perry. Thats the real value of the move -- the next domino to fall -- as opposed to the fourth-round pick, which offers about a one-in-six chance of netting an NHL player. FASTH to OILERS for a fifth-round and 2015 third-round pick Viktor Fasth, 31, had a wonderful first season in the NHL last year, posting a .921 save percentage for the Ducks in 25 games, and looked like he would have a chance to win the starting job this season, but he only played five games before getting hurt. He hasnt played since November 18, battling lower-body injuries since. Going to the Oilers, Fasth brings a $2.9-million cap hit and sets up a competition between Fasth and the just-signed Ben Scrivens for next season. While the Fasth-Scrivens duo has combined for a total of 88 NHL games, they are also two of 24 goaltenders with a combined save percentage of .915 or better since the start of last season (minimum 30 games). Given the poor goaltending the Oilers have had this season, they have a decent shot at getting solid play out of their new tandem going forward. Anaheim was dealing from a position of strength. Jonas Hiller, while an unrestricted free agent at seasons end, is a decent veteran, but rookie Frederik Andersen has been great (.929 SV%) and John Gibson, who has a .923 save percentage in his first AHL season, may be the top goaltending prospect in hockey. Between a third and fifth-round pick, the Ducks have better than a one-in-three chance of getting an NHL player but, like the Penner deal, the value to the Ducks is clearing Fasths salary for a bigger move. BRYZGALOV to WILD for a fourth-round pick It said something about the desperation the Edmonton Oilers were feeling about their goaltending this season that they resorted to signing Ilya Bryzgalov, the flighty 33-year-old whose game had fallen off so dramatically in Philadelphia. Nevertheless, Bryzgalov played 20 games for the Oilers, posting a .908 save percentage, which is below average (.913) as NHL goaltenders go, but his even-strength save percentage, which has more sustainability has been a respectable .924 over the past three seasons, good enough to take a chance on as a backup to rookie Darcy Kuemper, who has a .922 save percentage in 24 career games. The Oilers planned for Bryzgalovs departure by acquiring Fasth from Anaheim, but Minnesotas goaltending situation is murkier. Josh Harding, who had been so great this year, has been sidelined while he tries to regulate his MS medication, and 36-year-old Niklas Backstrom is having the worst season of his career. The more interesting matter for the Wild, long-term, is that Backstrom is under contract for two more seasons. ROBIDAS to DUCKS for a conditional fourth-round pick Stephane Robidas, 37, has been out of the Stars lineup since suffering a broken leg November 29, but hes played big minutes against tough opposition for much of his time in Dallas. Hes still a couple of weeks away from returning to action but, when he does, Robidas should step in to play more than 20 minutes per game in a shutdown defensive role, which could knock Ben Lovejoy a peg down the depth chart on the right side (and leave Bryan Allen, Luca Sbisa and Mark Fistric fighting for playing time). Robidas, who comes with a $3.3-million cap hit, will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, but hes nice upgrade for a Ducks defence that could use his experience and toughness in the postseason. Since Robidas has been out for more than three months, the Stars have already adjusted their lineup to accomodate for his absence. Most recently, their top four on defence consists of Alex Goligoski, Trevor Daley, Brenden Dillon and Jordie Benn. The pick going to Dallas is the fourth-rounder that Anaheim acquired from Washington in the Penner trade, though it is conditional and can move up to a third-round pick if the Ducks reach the Western Conference Final with Robidas playing at least half of their playoff games. MacDONALD to FLYERS for MANGENE, a third-round pick and 2015 second-round pick A long-time member of the unheralded and underpaid club, for making $550,000 while playing more than 23 minutes a night for the Islanders, Andrew MacDonald has been crushed under the workload that the Isles have given him this year, a career-high 25:25 per game while taking on the oppositions best forwards night after night. His with-or-without-you numbers show that virtually every Islander has fared better in possession terms when playing without MacDonald. Thats obviously a problem. So, if the Flyers are going to get a positive contribution out of MacDonald, they need to use him differently. Play him less and not against top competition on a regular basis, and maybe then the results wont be tilted so negatively. Adding MacDonald, who barely costs anything with one-quarter of a $550,000 cap hit due to him, does give the Flyers some depth on the blueline, enough that they might consider moving out Andrej Meszaros or someone else. Mangene is an undrafted prospect out of the University of Maine who has 17 points in 92 career AHL games. Not much reason to think that the 24-year-old is going to crack an NHL lineup, but the Flyers are pushing up against the 50 contract reserve limit, so including Mangene leaves room to make another move. For the Islanders, the second and third-round picks, cumulatively, there is a better than 50% chance those picks will yield an NHL player. With MacDonald gone, there will be more opportunity for young defencemen to take on more minutes. Calvin De Haan is already taking a prominent role, but maybe Matt Donovan gets another look too. RUNDBLAD and BRISEBOIS to BLACKHAWKS for a second-round pick David Rundblad, 23, was a first-round pick (17th overall) by St. Louis in 2009, but hasnt been able to secure a full-time NHL job, playing a total of 50 games, during which he has nine points and a minus-20 rating. The positive side is that Rundblad is a skilled offensive defenceman, who has 59 points in 86 AHL games, and while that plus-minus is ugly, hes been a victim of both poor goaltending and low on-ice shooting percentage in his limited NHL duty, so there is reason to believe his numbers will get better. Certainly, considering the Blackhawks gave up a second-round pick to acquire him, Rundblad should get an opportunity to find his game in Chicago. Maybe not immediately, but he gives the Blackhawks a right-handed puck-moving option and is signed through next season, with a favourable cap hit of $785,000. Mathieu Brisebois is a 21-year-old rookie pro who was undrafted out of the QMJHL. Hes an undersized defenceman who has some offensive ability, but has a long way to go before he can consider challenging for an NHL job. ERAT and MITCHELL to COYOTES for KLESLA, BROWN and a 2015 third-round pick Martin Erat, 32, had requested a trade out of Washington and the process might have been made easier if he had more than one goal in 53 games this season, but hes finally found a new home in Phoenix. Erat had been a steady, consistent offensive performer until the past couple seasons, during which he has goals and 48 points in 98 games. Hes also gone from playing 19 minutes a night in Nashville to 15 minutes per game for Washington, so its not shocking that his numbers have decreased. While his goal production has slipped, Erat remains a solid enough possession player in relative terms, so its reasonable to expect him to be a contributor in an offensive role for the Coyotes, potentially slotted on the wing with former Capital Mike Ribeiro or with fellow Czechs Martin Hanzal and Radim Vrbata. Erat is under contract for another year, at a $4.5-million cap hit, so there is some investment here, to upgrade their skill, by the Coyotes. The John Mitchell included in this deal is not the Avalanche checking forward, rather this John Mitchell is a big minor-league forward, a 27-year-old who has 57 points in 191 career AHL games. Going to Washington, 31-year-old defenceman Rostislav Klesla has fallen out of favour in Phoenix, playing a career-low 16:31 per game this season, in addition to playing the first AHL games of his career (3 G, 6 A, plus-8 in 21 AHL GP). In a position of limited responsibility this year, Klesla has actually fared okay, so its conceivable that he could get an opportunity with the Capitals, who have had a revolving door on the lower portion of their blueline depth chart this season. Klesla, who makes $2.975-million, will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer. Chris Brown is a 23-year-old physical winger who has good size and has shown decent offensive ability in a couple of AHL seasons, putting up 43 goals and 82 points in 119 games since leaving the University of Michigan. Brown had no points and 19 penalty minutes in 11 games with the Coyotes over the past two seasons, so he hasnt made his mark in the NHL yet, but is knocking on the door and could get a look with Washington soon enough. CONACHER to SABRES (via waivers) Cory Conacher is a 24-year-old winger who the Senators acquired, with a fourth-round pick, last season in exchange for Ben Bishop. Considering Bishops season in Tampa Bay, Conacher had virtually no hope to offer similar value to Ottawa. Furthermore, Conacher started his career with 12 points in seven games, playing with Steven Stamkos, but his production has dipped decidedly since, with 37 points in 100 games since, including four goals and 20 points in 60 games this season. Conacher played at nearby Canisius College, scoring 130 points in 109 games over his last three seasons, before tallying 114 points in 118 AHL games on his climb up the ranks. Those numbers show the kind of offensive skills that Conacher has, but the big question is whether the 5-foot-8 winger can generate offence consistently in the NHL. He had adequate possession stats in Ottawa and should get a decent opportunity to play in Buffalo, where they are busy auditioning players for next season. Conacher will be a restricted free agent in the summer, and comes with a cap hit of $871,250 this season. It probably doesnt hurt Conachers case that hes being acquired by Tim Murray, who had been with the Senators organization previously. POTTER to BRUINS (via waivers) Corey Potter, 30, is a right-handed defenceman with good size (6-foot-3) who has been something of a late bloomer, playing 111 of his 120 career NHL games over the past three seasons. Potter has been stomped in possession terms this season, though some of that is a function of a small sample while playing for a terrible team because hes been adequate in the previous two seasons. Potter offers cheap depth ($775,000 cap hit, UFA in summer) for the Bruins, given the state of their blueline, with Matt Bartkowki and Kevan Miller playing regular minutes, maybe Potter will have a chance to play at some point. The Oilers only played Potter 16 games this season to begin with, so there shouldnt be too much adjustment required to filling out the lineup for the rest of the season without him. MCNABB, PARKER and two second-round picks to KINGS for FASCHING and DESLAURIERS Brayden McNabb is a 23-year-old, 6-foot-4 defenceman who is really due for a longer look in the NHL. He has 95 points and a plus-23 rating in 145 career AHL games and has eight points and an even rating in 37 games with the Sabres. His relative possession stats are okay and its reasonable to at least give him a chance on the third pair or as a seventh defenceman at the very least. Whether McNabb gets a regular shot with the Kings down the stretch or not, he has top-four upside and is a viable insurance option for the offseason as the Kings have veteran physical defencemen Willie Mitchell and Matt Greene heading for unrestricted free agency. Jonathan Parker is a 22-year-old SoCal native who played in the Western Hockey League, topping out with 86 points in 71 games for Prince Albert in 2010-2011. He has 12 points in 76 career AHL games and 35 points in 46 career ECHL games. The Sabres have accumulated quite a stockpile of second-round picks recently, so its not a surprise that they are willing to include some in order to get assets that they would like to have in the system. A pair of second-round picks, cumulatively, offer better than a 50% chance of netting an NHL player. Hudson Fasching is a right-winger that the Kings drafted in the fourth-round last summer, but the 18-year-old, 6-foot-3 power forward is having a tremendous freshman season at the University of Minnesota, scoring 12 goals and 27 points in 31 games while contributing four points in five games for Team USA at the World Juniors. The Sabres are taking a swing on Faschings upside, looking to land a big forward who can score, even if hes going to take a few years to develop. Nicolas Deslauriers is a 23-year-old who came up as a defenceman before shifting to forward this season and hes put up 18 goals and 39 points in 60 AHL games, not enough to expect that hes a sure thing to take the next step to the NHL, but enough to think that Deslauriers may get a chance at some point, particularly if he continues to improve in his new position. DUBNYK to CANADIENS for future considerations G Devan Dubnyk was an above-average NHL goaltender in the previous three seasons, posting a .917 save percentage in 120 games, before his numbers collapsed (.891 SV%) in Edmonton and Nashville this year. He was brought in as insurance in Nashville, but only played two games, leaving Carter Hutton to handle the bulk of the starts in Pekka Rinnes absence. With Rinne returning to action this week, and with the Canadiens currently missing injured starter Carey Price, Dubnyk offers some measure of roster insurance in case Prices absence goes longer than expected and Peter Budaj needs a break. For the time being, though, Dubnyk is joining Hamilton in the AHL. He comes with a $3.5-million cap hit and will be a restricted free agent in the summer. Considering how this season has turned out, theres a strong chance that Dubnyk doesnt get a qualifying offer. GOC to PENGUINS to for a fifth-round pick and a 2015 third-round pick 30-year-old Marcel Goc is a highly-underrated two-way pivot who has consistently played hard minutes, against tough competition, in Florida. Hes been reliable enough that he could even knock Brandon Sutter down to a fourth-line role in Pittsburgh. Goc, who earns $1.7-million per season, will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, so hes a rental and an inexpensive one at that, with the value of a third and fifth-round pick offering little more than a one-third chance of yielding an NHL player. From the Panthers perspective, they get to use the rest of the season to test their young centres, including new acquisition Brandon Pirri and call-up Vincent Trocheck, both of whom have a chance to offer future value to the franchise. RUUTU to DEVILS for LOKTIONOV and a conditional third-round pick in 2017. Ruutu, 31, is a veteran forward that can play both ends of the rink, but has been particularly unlucky this season, managing just 16 points with a minus-19 rating in 57 games. The offensive decline is one thing, since Ruutu is playing a career-low 14:15 per game and generating 1.39 shots per game, his lowest since 2007-2008. Thats not the entire story, as Ruutus on-ice shooting percentage is a career-low 6.85%. Where Ruutu gets undermined is in terms of on-ice save percentage (.891), which plays a notable part in his negative plus-minus number. In New Jersey, Ruutu can play a top nine role and while hes not likely to be a huge scorer, hes also scored more than 50 points a couple of times in his career, so hes not altogether unfamiliar with the objectives in the offensive zone. The big issue with Ruutu is his contract, which brings a $4.75-million cap hit for two years beyond the current season. If Ruutu cant produce offensively, then theres no way that hell provide value for that contract but the expectation is that the Hurricanes will be retaining some of that salary which will help mitigate the cost. If he produces like a 15-to-20-goal-scorer (which was his standard through 2011-2012), then Ruutu could be enough of an addition to improve the Devils shot at the postseason. Loktionov, a 23-year-old centre, has only played 12:19 per game, but hes managed decent puck possession stats with a heavy slant (64.0%) of his starts towards the offensive zone. While Loktionov has only 38 points in 135 career games, he has some skill and a little as yet unrealized offensive potential. If hes ever going to realize that potential, though, Loktionov needs to get stronger. Loktionov will be a restricted free agent at seasons end, so the final quarter of this season could go a long way towards determining his future with his new team. THOMAS to STARS for ELLIS Tim Thomas, 39, has had an up-and-down return to the NHL after a season on hiatus. His overall save percentage is .909, which is below average, but his even-strength save percentage (.911) is among the lowest in the league this season. Theres probably something to Thomas not being completely ready to handle a starters workload, particularly on a shaky Panthers team. Going to Dallas, Thomas does offer some insurance as Kari Lehtonens backup. The Stars are playoff contenders and if Lehtonen gets hurt, the Stars may feel more confident with Thomas instead of Dan Ellis, whose even-strength save percentage is only .902 this season. Thomas will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, and comes with a $2.5-million cap hit. Once the Panthers acquired Roberto Luongo, it was understandable that the Panthers didnt want any kind of controversy between their veteran goaltenders. 33-year-old Ellis is a mediocre backup option, with a .904 save percentage in 33 games over the past two seasons, and hes under contract for next season as well, at a cap hit of $900,000, so he can get used to being buddies with Luongo. N. SCHULTZ to BLUE JACKETS for a fifth-round pick There was a time when 31-year-old Nick Schultz was a shutdown defensive defenceman, but those days are in the rearview, it appears, because his possession stats have been abysmal this season. But, with the Blue Jackets missing a couple of defencemen -- Fedor Tyutin and Ryan Murray -- at the moment, Schultz offers some experience and the Blue Jackets can hope that a new situation will work more in Schultzs favour. When the Blue Jackets defence is healthy, Schultz could be relegated to seventh defenceman status, so hes not supposed to be a major impact player and the price that Columbus paid reflects that. Fifth-round picks have about a 13% chance of turning into NHLers, so the Oilers take that roll of the dice and get to give some of their young defencemen more opportunities late in the year. MESZAROS to BRUINS for a third-round pick Meszaros, 28, has battled injuries and is playing far less than he did in previous seasons -- a career-low 17:22 per game this year -- and he wasnt really doing much for the first half of this season following an injury-plagued 2013 season, but hes been a little fortunate with percentages on his way to contributing 14 points in the past 19 games. The Bruins have been looking for a veteran to take the place of Dennis Seidenberg since Seidenberg suffered a season-ending knee injury, and Meszaros is familiar to GM Peter Chiarelli from their time in Ottawa, but it will be interesting to see if Meszaros can get back to playing 20-plus minutes per night (as he did from 2006-2007 through 2011-2012), or whether hes going to be a third pair option. When the Flyers added Andrew MacDonald from the Islanders Tuesday, that gave them some options on the blueline. Even after moving out Meszaros, they still have Luke Schenn and Erik Gustafsson as their sixth and seventh defencemen. DIAZ to RANGERS for a 2015 fifth-round pick Diaz is a 28-year-old defenceman who barely played (a total of 12:54) in the past couple games with Vancouver, a far cry from the 25:46 he played in his first game with the Canucks, a month ago, when Vancouvers defence was depleted by injuries. A right-handed defenceman who can move the puck, Diaz has decent possesion numbers and could very easily slide into a regular spot on the Blueshirts blueline, possibly ahead of Kevin Klein on the right side. With Diaz moving on and the Canucks defence healthy, rookie Ryan Stanton is likely the beneficiary, set to handle regular third pair minutes for Vancouver. LEGWAND to RED WINGS for EAVES, JARNKROK and a conditional third-round pick After 956 regular season games with the Nashville Predators, 33-year-old David Legwand is on his way to the Red Wings, a team desperate for help down the middle since Pavel Datsyuk and Henrik Zetterberg are both hurt (not to mention Darren Helm and Stephen Weiss). Legwand has been a strong two-way player, who has decent possession numbers while playing tough minutes. His ice time (17:13 ATOI) is down a bit this year, his lowest since 2001-2002, but Legwand is primed to take on a significant role for the Red Wings down the stretch. While Legwand, who will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, may not be a long-term solution for Detroit, hes a reliable two-way player that should help immediately and give the Wings a better chance to make the playoffs. Eaves, 29, has been a spare part winger for Detroit, scoring four goals and 14 points in 69 games over the past three seasons. He doesnt play a lot and, when he does, its with fourth-liners, so the on-ice shooting percentage has been low, though probably expectedly so. Eaves will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, but can handle depth minutes for the Predators down the stretch. The much more interesting acquisition for Nashville is Calle Jarnkrok, a second-round pick in 2010 who was a hot commodity in Sweden but has taken some time to adjust to the North American game, putting up 39 points in 66 AHL games going back to late last season. However, recent production is much more favourable for Jarnkrok, as he has three goals and 16 assists, with a plus-4 rating, in the past 16 games. Jarnkrok is expected to be a solid two-way centre in the NHL and could combine with Filip Forsberg to add offence in the not-too-distant future for the Predators. The draft pick is set to be a third-round pick, though it bumps up to a second-round pick if the Red Wings make the playoffs. All in all, its a pretty nice return for the Predators, who get some long-term value while surrendering a player who had been with the franchise since he was drafted second overall in 1998. BERRA to AVALANCHE for a second-round pick Berra, 27, has struggled (posting an .897 SV%) in his first NHL season, so it seems that the Avalanche paid a relatively steep price for a backup goaltender. If the Avs only need Berra as insurance in case Jean-Sebastien Gigueres back causes him problems, thats fine, maybe he wont play much at all. But, if thats the premise under which he was acquired, why would it cost a second-round pick for a rental that will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer? With Berra moving on, there ought to be more opportunity then for rookie Joni Ortio, who had a .926 save percentage in the AHL and may be the de facto starter now that Karri Ramo is hurt. STEMPNIAK to PENGUINS for a third-round pick Stempniak, 31, is a solid enough winger who has been asked to play tough minutes for the struggling Flames. He plays against tough opposition and, in relative terms, has strong possession numbers and, playing more than 19 minutes per game, hes genrating a career-high 2.77 shots on goal per game. Hes finishing on a career-low rate (5.6%), but thats the kind of rate that is due to improve. In Pittsburgh, Stempniak may be in a really nice spot to see a bump in his numbers. While he might not seem the ideal player to skate on a line with Sidney Crosby, the same could have been said about Pascal Dupuis, the injured winger who the Penguins have been trying to replace. Beau Bennett may still get a chance on Crosbys wing at some point, but look for Stempniak to get his shot too. In the Flames case, they somehow ended up with Mike Cammalleri still on their roster after the deadline but, by moving pending free agent Stempniak, that opens up more room for the clubs prospects to audition late in the year. Markus Granlund, Corban Knight and Max Reinhart should all be among those Flames forwards to get decent looks late in the year. HALAK and a third-round pick to CAPITALS for NEUVIRTH and KLESLA Halak is a 28-year-old who was bumped out of St. Louis by Ryan Miller who, statistically, is about equal with Halak over recent seasons, so Halak is plenty of capable of handling a starters workload if thats what the Capitals need, depending on Braden Holtbys play. Halak will be an unrestricted free agent in the summer, so he may not be in D.C. long, but if the Capitals are going to push for a playoff spot this year. From the Sabres perspective, they sacrifice one of their many draft picks and take on Rostislav Klesla for the rest of the season in order to add Michal Neuvirth, a 25-year-old goaltender who might have what it takes to be an NHL starter. He has a .910 save percentage in 134 career games (.912 in 26 games over the past two seasons), so its possible that Neuvirth is more suited to a backup role, but this is an opportunity for him to compete with Jhonas Enroth for playing time. Under contract for another year, at a $2.5-million cap hit, Neuvirth has a chance to take his game to a new level and, playing for the Sabres, he wont lack for shots against when he does play.

Felix Pie had an RBI double earlier in the inning, as Baltimore rallied for three runs to overcome a 3-2 deficit. J.J. Hardy had two hits and Matt Wieters chipped in with an RBI double for the Orioles, who pushed their winning streak to three games.SALT LAKE CITY -- Luol Deng better be ready to run because Kyrie Irving thinks the Cleveland Cavaliers play best when they play fast. Irving shines in the open court and says the Cavaliers can win if they can run. They got out on the break Friday night, and Irving had 25 points and eight assists in a 113-102 victory over the Utah Jazz. "We were just feeding off of one anothers energy. We picked up our pace on both ends of the floor. We got multiple stops and that led out to our fast-break points," Irving said. In Dengs first game with the Cavaliers, Irving scored 17 points in the third quarter to turn a three-point deficit into a 15-point lead as Cleveland snapped Utahs season-high four-game home winning streak. Deng had 10 points in his Cleveland debut. "He may have tried to press too much, but we want him to get in his rhythm with the rest of us," Irving said. The rest of the Cavs were certainly in a rhythm against Utah, one game after scoring 111 points against Philadelphia. The NBAs worst-shooting team hit 54 per cent against the Jazz, including 63 per cent in the second half. "We kept preaching to our guys to push the pace, push the pace, push the pace," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said after his players set a season high with 39 third-quarter points. Tristan Thompson had 18 points and 15 rebounds, while C.J. Miles and Dion Waiters each scored 17 to help the Cavs win their first road game since a 109-100 victory in Orlando on Dec. 13. Playing without leading scorer Gordon Hayward, sidelined by a strained hip, the Jazz were paced by Richard Jeffersons 18 points. Trey Burke had 17 points and six assists, but picked up his fourth foul in the third quarter right before Irving sparked Clevelands key surge. "I started being more aggressive and taking advantage of what they were giving me," said Irving, who missed three games with a bruised knee but has returned with extra energy and a sharp touch. Shooting 43 per cent on the season, he was 6 of 9 in the win Tuesday against Philadelphia and then made all three of his 3-point attempts against the Jazz. After a root canal Thursday, Irving showed no ill effects as he scored from a variety of spots on the floor and pushed the Cavaliers to 21 fast-break points. "In the first half, I was just too slow. Playing fast not only helps me, it helps the team. Everybody wass running the lane, everybodys running for easy baskets and thats what we need," Irving said. Julian Draxler Germany Jersey. Deng played more than nine seasons with the Chicago Bulls and was an All-Star the past two before he was acquired Tuesday for Andrew Bynum and three future draft picks. Averaging 19 points and 6.9 rebounds in Chicago, Deng appeared to be searching to find his place in the Cleveland offence as he played only 21 minutes and had four turnovers. "Its been so strange. Even coming in today and getting the jersey on and seeing it say Cavaliers, it hit me again. But I looked in the mirror and checked the colours out and it looked pretty good," Deng said. Hayward, coming off a career-high 37 points, missed his first game this season because of a muscle strain in his left hip flexor. He will be a game-time decision Monday against Denver. This one was back and forth with 14 lead changes and 11 ties until Irving and the Cavaliers took charge in the third quarter. "He got his rhythm and hes that kind of player. He decided to take it upon himself to pick it up there and we didnt match his intensity," Utah coach Ty Corbin said. Trailing 49-46 at halftime, the Cavaliers started the third with a 10-2 run to take a 56-51 lead. When Burke was whistled for his fourth foul and headed to the bench, the Jazz were down 65-62. Irving took full advantage and scored 17 points, including consecutive 3-pointers, in the third quarter to spark another Cleveland run. Jarrett Jack, who has been bothered by back spasms, capped a 15-2 surge with a 3-pointer and a jumper to make it 87-70. "Obviously, Kyrie Irving got going. His team feeds off of him, and once he hit a couple of 3s and got to the line, thats when they went on a run," Burke said. Miles, after scoring a season-high 34 points and setting a Cavaliers record for 3s in a game with 10, kept up his strong shooting by going 6 of 7.

The NHL Play of the Year Showdown resumes today with soft hands, a dipsy doodle and a trick shot. Nabil Fekir Jersey . Todays semifinal match-up features St. Louis Blues forward T.J. Oshie taking on Detroit Red Wings forward Tomas Tatar and Thomas Hertl of the San Jose Sharks. Oshie - as he proved at the Sochi Olympics this year - is comfortable going it alone. After a fake slapper from Alex Steen backs the Tampa Bay Lightning off, Oshie grabs the puck and starts making headway towards the net. Oshie then splits Victor Hedman and Teddy Purcell before avoiding a spinning stick-check from Martin St. Louis. Losing his feet, Oshie finishes it with a backhand shovel that beats big Ben Bishop. Tatar eliminates his defenders by running them clean into one another. Streaking over the blue line, Tatar feels a pair of Dallas defenders closing in on him. As Brenden Dillon moves in for the big hit, Tatar hesitates and the Stars d-man catches teammate Cameron Gaunce square on, sending both players flying. Tatar resumes his drive and finishes with a nifty backhand shovel that goes off Kari Lehtonen and in. Hertl – in just his third career game – had a historic night, scoring four goals at just 19 years old. The fourth goal, however, was something to behold. Streaking in from the left boards, Hertl barrels in on Martin Biron looking to cap an already impressive night. He pulls Biron to his right, bringing the puck back through his legs. Reaching between with his stick, he gets under the shot for a wrister that goes top left corner. The young Czechs effort produces a goal brimming with confidence beyond his teenage years.

The Kings forced tonights Game 7 thanks to a 2-1 home victory on Wednesday. The close decision halted Anaheims three-game winning streak after losing the first two contests of this series on home ice. Anaheim is 2-3 all-time in Game 7s while the Kings are 5-4 in this situation. Despite dropping Games 1 and 2 in Orange County, the top-seeded Ducks are 4-2 as the host in this postseason. L.A. is 4-3 on the road, but had won four straight as the guest before dropping Game 5 in Anaheim by a 4-3 score. In order to get past the Kings, however, Anaheim will have to end Los Angeles string of elimination wins during this postseason. The Kings won four in a row to beat San Jose in the opening round after dropping the first three games of that set, becoming the fourth club in NHL history to win a series after falling behind 3-0. L.A. pushed that streak to five with Wednesdays win at the Staples Center. Jake Muzzin and Trevor Lewis each lit the lamp in Game 6 and Jonathan Quick stopped 21 shots to help the Kings stay alive. L.A., which won its first Stanley Cup title in 2012, is attempting to make it to the conference final stage for a third straight spring. Anze Kopitar posted an assist for the Kings, giving him at least one point in 12 of his teams 13 playoff games. Corentin Tolisso France Jersey. Kopitar is leading the league with 17 points on four goals and 13 assists this postseason. Muzzin opened the scoring with his third of the playoffs 8:16 into the game, while Lewis netted the eventual game-winner with 5:56 left in the second. Kyle Palmieri found the back of the net just 1:38 later to get the Ducks within one, but Quick turned aside all 10 shots he faced in the third to set the stage for this evenings winner-take-all contest. L.A. improved to 6-1 this postseason when scoring first. "Were a good team. Any team thats still playing this time of year has got a good team and knows how to win," Quick said. "Itll be a good game (Game 7) and weve got to get our rest and be ready." Anaheim rookie John Gibson, who had stopped 67-of-70 shots since making his postseason debut between the pipes in Game 4, allowed both goals on 23 shots in the setback. "You want to win it when you can, and we didnt get it done," Anaheim head coach Bruce Boudreau said. "Well get better and well get ready, and well play a hell of a game Friday." The 20-year-old Gibson burst on the scene with a 28-save shutout in Game 4 and stopped 39-of-42 shots in Mondays close victory. It was the first loss at the NHL level for Gibson, who was 3-0 for Anaheim during the regular season in 2013-14 before winning Games 4 and 5 of this series. The Ducks are aiming for their first trip to the conference finals since 2007, when the franchise won its only Stanley Cup title. This series, which has been dubbed the "Freeway Faceoff," is the first playoff matchup between these Southern California rivals. Fridays game could be the last in the standout career of Ducks winger Teemu Selanne, who expects to retire after this season. The 43-year-old future Hall of Famer has compiled 684 regular-season goals and 1,457 points in over two decades in the league. Disocunt Football Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Stitched Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Authentic Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping ' ' '

The Swede became the first golfer to win the PGA Tours FedEx Cup and European Tours Race to Dubai in the same season.

Stenson had six birdies in the final round before finishing with an eagle at the 18th hole left him at 25 under for the tournament. It was his first victory of the season on the European Tour. "To achieve the double, double if you like in winning the DP World Tour Championship and the Race to Dubai on top of winning the PGA Tour Championship to capture the FedEx Cup takes some beating, I guess," Stenson said.

Poulter birdied his closing two holes to shoot a 66 and finish second at 19 under. He also finished in second in the Race to Dubai. "I have to take my hat off to Henrik as he is unbelievable," Poulter said.

SURREY, B. Rodrigo Moreno Jersey .C. -- B.C. Lions starting quarterback Travis Lulays recovery from off-season shoulder surgery appears to be on schedule as he takes part in the teams mini-camp. But with off-season signing Steven Jyles absent and his future in question, the Lions are lacking a bona fide backup with CFL experience. Lulay limited the number of throws while only making short passes in drills Tuesday, the second day of a three-day mini-camp for offensive players at the teams Surrey, B.C., training complex. But he was hopeful of being ready for main training camp in June. "Its getting better," said Lulay. "Its been a good couple days to come out and throw the ball around. Obviously, Im still limited, Im still progressing to getting back to where I need to be. But its been a really good measuring stick for this stage of the game." Lulay underwent surgery to repair a damaged labrum suffered in a collision while scoring a touchdown in September. He missed six regular-season games but was able to play in the Western semifinal loss to the Calgary Stampeders. "Im being cognizant of my numbers," he said. "Im just not over-throwing because the biggest thing is, with a shoulder, its such a delicate joint. Over-doing it is one of the worst things you can do. "So Im just understanding that its a progression and just taking steps up the ladder each week. This (camp) is just another part of that. The mobility, the range, is great. Its just continuing to get that end range (i.e. long-pass) and that strength back." General manager Wally Buono said medical reports indicate that Lulay will be ready for the main training camp in Kamloops, B.C., and the quarterback has gone "way beyond the call of duty" in his recovery efforts. "The camp was held at this time for a specific reason," said Buono. " (Part) of it was to make sure Travis could go out and do all the things that hes been doing. Right now, it looks very promising." Jyles, who has seven years of CFL experience but did not play last season because his services were not in demand, was conspicuous by his absence after agreeing to terms with the Lions in April. "Im fine with it," said Buono. "As I intimated before, we were going to bring five quarterbacks to this camp, and one of the things we were going to do was evaluate which quarterback we probably wouldnt invite to the main camp. So this, right now, is just helping our decision." Jyles absence left the Lions with four QBs in the mini-camp. With new offensive co-ordinator Khari Jones beginning to implement his system, this is an important time for quarterback hopefuls to start learning the revised playbook and executing plays in advance of the clubs main June training camp. However, the camp is voluntary for those invited. Jyles, who has three young children, is working in the Dallas area. "I respect the fact that he put his family first," said Buono. "Obviously, (deciding whether to pursue an unguaranteed spot with the Lions) is not an easy decision and, at this point, he felt it was just best not to leave his job." Since beginning his CFL career in 2006, Jyles has had two stints with Edmonton and also played for Saskatchewan, Winnipeg and Toronto. With Jyles absent, second-year Lion Chris Hart is the only other quarterback at the camp with CFL experience. NFL veteran John Beck, 32, and Jarrett Lee, who was drafted in 2012 by the San Diego Chargers but did not play in the NFL, are also signed and taking part in the mini-camp. Hart spent most of last season as the clubs fourth quarterback, but feels he has "improved a lot" since he took part in an offensive mini-camp a year ago. "I dont want to say anything (on the backup job)," he said. "I let the coaches do their job and pick who they need to pick. Im just battling for the job and Im going to compete. Im going to work hard like Im No. 1." "Obviously, this is a good test for him, too, because we spent a year with him," said Buono. "Hopefully, hes a lot more comfortable. Hopefully, even though the system is new, the verbiage is easier for him." Beck, a second-round selection of the Miami Dolphins in the 2007, is looking to secure regular employment with the Lions after taking a winding path to B.C. In addition to the Dolphins, he played six seasons with Baltimore, Washington and Houston. The Brigham Young University grad has started seven NFL regular-season games and thrown for 1,417 yards and three touchdowns on 140 completions. Beck spent last season out of football. But instead of pursuing a different career, he spent his time honing his skills while enjoying extra time with his wife and their three sons and hoping for a team to call. "Ive gotta be honest," he said. "Id never really anticipated that my journey would take me to Canada. My journey started in the NFL. I thought thered be some really good opportunities in it for me, and my journey started off in the situation you dont want have it start off on. Go to (Miami) the worst team in the NFL and have everybody get fired. It cant get much worse than that. "But Im very excited that my journey has taken me here. Thats the fun part about it. Im excited for the opportunity thats here." Lee spent five years at Louisiana State, a perennial powerhouse, where he completed 317-of-565 attempts for 3.949 yards and 32 touchdowns. New offensive co-ordinator Jones believes that Lulay is "on track" to being ready to start the season and is not perturbed by Jyles absence. "My job is to coach the guys that are out here," said Jones. "If he shows up, then he shows up." Notes: The Lions were forced to find a new backup after former backup Thomas DeMarco was claimed by Ottawa in the CFL expansion draft, veteran Buck Pierce retired to become an assistant coach with Winnipeg, and Joey Elliott was released after two stints with B.C. last season. a Veteran offensive guard Patrick Kabongo, entering the option year of his contract, is not attending the camp as he works outside of football in Edmonton.Spain Jerseys . Kyle Denbrook, a soccer player from Saint Marys University, took the CIS male athlete of the week honour. Stanley, a fourth-year business administration student from Charlottetown, scored both goals in a 2-0 win over Dalhousie on Friday and tallied again in a 1-0 win over Saint Marys on Sunday. Koke Spain Jersey .
