The World Series will finish late Wednesday, bringing an end to one of the longest title droughts in sports. Terrell Brandon Jersey .The Chicago Cubs are trying to win their first series since 1908, and the Cleveland Indians their first since 1948.They are playing Game 7 in Cleveland.Here are some other teams and players who had to wait a long time between major titles.BRITAIN WINS DAVIS CUPAndy Murray ended Britains wait for the Davis Cup at 79 years when his lob finished off Belgiums David Goffin in the final in Ghent a year ago. Murray, who became Britains first mens Wimbledon champion in 77 years, starred in its first Davis Cup triumph since Fred Perry and Bunny Austin beat Australia in the 1936 final, when King Edward VIII wore the crown.CHELSEAChelsea won at Bolton 2-0 to capture the English football title in 2005, 50 years after its first. In manager Jose Mourinhos maiden season, Chelsea won with three games to spare. The teams hallmark was defense and goalkeeper Petr Cech, who kept 25 clean sheets. They conceded only 15 goals, and lost just once.SPAINSpain won the 1964 European Championship on home soil, beating the Soviet Union in the final, then flattered to deceive on soccers biggest stages for 44 years until Euro 2008. Germany was outclassed 1-0 in the final, and Spain began its reign of football, also grabbing the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.REAL MADRIDWhen Real Madrid upset Juventus 1-0 in the 1998 Champions League final in Amsterdam, it ended a 32-year drought in the competition it cherishes most. Madrids players were past their prime, while Juventus tore up the league, including putting six goals past Monaco over two legs in the semifinals to reach its third straight final. Madrids win didnt help coach Jupp Heynckes, who was sacked eight days later.INDIAThe shock 1983 Cricket World Cup triumph boosted the sports appeal in India, but the national team wouldnt win another World Cup for 28 years. India was host in 2011 when it knocked out titleholder Australia in the quarterfinals, and archrival Pakistan in the semis. Before a home TV audience of 135 million, India chased down Sri Lankas 274 score in the final with 10 balls to spare.KEN ROSEWALLKen Rosewall was banned from the tennis Grand Slams in his prime for 11 years after becoming a professional in 1957, but remarkably remained injury-free after tennis opened up in 1968. He won the Australian Open 16 years after his last, the French Open 15 years after his last, and the U.S. Open 14 years after his last. Hed win the Australian again, and reach the Wimbledon and U.S. finals at age 39. J.R. Smith Jersey .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. Matthew Dellavedova Jersey .B. -- The Baie-Comeau Drakkar took over sole possession of first place atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Thursday with their sixth straight win. .Y. - Detroit goaltender Jonas Gustavsson has earned NHL first star of the week honours after winning in his first three appearances of the season. INDIANAPOLIS -- Detroit Lions kicker Matt Prater just wanted a second chance Sunday.Matthew Stafford ensured he got it -- and Prater delivered with a 43-yard field goal that gave the Lions a wild 39-35 victory at Indianapolis.Just four minutes earlier, after Stafford had broken a 28-28 tie with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Theo Riddick, Prater pushed the extra point wide right. So it was 34-28, opening the door for Colts quarterback Andrew Luck to pull off another comeback.Instead, Prater got a shot at redemption and the Lions never doubted him.To see him bounce back is huge, coach Jim Caldwell said. When you miss like that, the second one can be difficult. But he has an unusual focusing ability.Stafford played brilliantly, going 31 of 39 for 340 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.Somehow, Luck nearly rallied the Colts from an 18-point deficit to another last-minute victory when he threw a 6-yard TD pass to Jack Doyle with 37 seconds to go. It rekindled memories of the winning TD pass he threw at Detroit four years ago.Adam Vinatieris extra point gave Indy a 35-34 lead.But against Indys depleted secondary, Stafford found receivers who turned short catches into big gains. Four plays later, Prater got his chance, and he hit it right.We made a lot of plays, and we just ran out of gas (on defense), Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. We just couldnt make that one more play that we needed to make.Indy was called for a safety on the final play of the game, for throwing an illegal forward pass in its end zone.LUCKS RETURN: In Lucks first meaningful game in more than 10 months, he started slowly and finished strong, as he usually does.Luck wound up 31 of 47 for 385 yards with four touchdowns and had no turnovers -- a stark contrast to his mistake-prone ways during an injury-riddled 2015 season.KEY NUMBERS: Detroit averaged a league-low 83.4 yards rushing per game in 2015 but had 87 at halftime and finished with 116.Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 59 yards, but the Colts extended their streakk of consecutive games without a 100-yard rusher to 51. Brad Daugherty Jersey. .SLOW START: Indianapolis spent the offseason looking for ways to start faster. The results didnt match the effort. Indy trailed 14-0 before Luck finally got in sync by finishing the first half with two scoring drives to make it 21-10.OLYMPIC MOMENT: For the second straight day, Olympic gold medalist Lilly King received the loudest ovation of the Indiana contingent that competed at the Rio Olympics. On Saturday, Indiana University honored the Hoosiers who competed between the first and second quarters. On Sunday, the reaction was the same at halftime of Lions-Colts.INJURY REPORT: Detroit running back Theo Riddick left for a while to undergo the concussion protocol, but returned late in the game after being cleared.Indy had three defenders go down on one series late in the first half: safety T.J. Green (sprained knee), cornerback Patrick Robinson (concussion), and linebacker Sio Moore. Cornerback Antonio Cromartie also left briefly in the first half, holding his left wrist. Moore and Cromartie returned. Green and Robinson did not, and Green is scheduled to undergo more evaluation Monday. Safety Winston Guy (ankle) also left late in the game and did not return.THEY SAID IT: Stafford on his confidence in Prater: No sweat. I knew he would be good from 65.Luck on another slow start: Im tired of being a part of slow starts. ... Weve got to start faster.FANTASY IMPACT: Riddick had a big day for Detroit and even better one for fantasy football owners. He rushed seven times for 45 yards and one touchdown while catching five passes for 63 yards and another TD.Owners in need of tight ends in Week 2 may want to gamble on the Colts tight ends. Dwayne Allen caught four passes for 53 yards and one TD, while two of Doyles three catches went for TDs.---AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys' ' '
PRAGUE -- Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova was injured by a knife-wielding attacker at her home on Tuesday and had to undergo surgery on her left hand. Frans Nielsen Red Wings Jersey .An operation that took 3 hours and 45 minutes revealed that the left-handed players injuries were serious, but theres no reason to think she wouldnt be able to play tennis, her spokesman Karel Tejkal said.Kvitova will, however, miss the Australian Open and a significant part of the season as she wont be able to fully train for at least three months, Tejkal said.Kvitova sustained damaged to the tendons in her left hand, along with injuries to all five fingers and two nerves, Tejkal added.The 2011 and 2014 champion at the All England Club said she considered herself lucky to have survived the attack Tuesday morning in the eastern Czech town of Prostejov.In my attempt to defend myself, I was badly injured on my left hand. I am shaken, but fortunate to be alive, Kvitova wrote on Twitter. The injury is severe and I will need to see specialists, but if you know anything about me I am strong and I will fight this.In an earlier statement on the Facebook page of the Czech Republics Fed Cup team, Kvitova said: What happened to me was certainly not pleasant, but its behind me. I have the best possible care and Im in touch with my loved ones. The worst is behind me.It was not immediately clear how the injury could affect Kvitovas play. She underwent surgery because of her condition and future career, said Tejkal, who described the incident as a burglary. Prostejov police spokesman Frantisek Korinek said the attacker, a man who is about 35 years old, escaped from the scene and was at large. He said police have launched a manhunt.Kvitova was scheduled to participate in a charity event in the city of Brno on Tuesday with another Czech player, Lucie Safarova.Its horrible, Safarova told Czech public radio. Things like that are shocking to all of us. It can happen to anyone of us. Thats really terrible.In April 1993, Monica Seles was at the height of her success when she was stabbed in the back during a changeover at a tournament in Hamburg. A man reached over a courtside railing and knifed her, leaving an inch-deep slit between her shoulder blades.Seles returned to the game 27 months later and reached the 1995 U.S. Open final.In an unrelated move earlier Tuesday, Kvitova withdrew from the Czech Republic team at next months Hopman Cup mixed-team tennis tournament because of an earlier foot injury.

Drivers: Carlos Sainz, Daniil Kvyat, Max Verstappen Best result: 6th, multiple occasions Best qualifying: 6th, multiple occasionsToro Rossos season was always going to drop off as the year went on -- hampered by a year-old Ferrari engine. Evgeny Svechnikov Jersey . It once again produced a stand-out chassis which helped compensate for its power deficit for most of the year, though the final portion of 2016 left a lot to be desired.The team was hampered by the early season switch which saw Daniil Kvyat return for Max Verstappen, who was promoted to Red Bull. Kvyat needed almost half a season to adjust to his new role and that period of adjustment clearly hurt the teams results before the summer break. One shining light from the whole period is Carlos Sainz, however, who proved he is one of the standout young talents on the grid, though it now faces a headache about keeping him beyond 2017.?

LOS ANGELES -- Nearly seven months after the Los Angeles Rams placed their future on the shoulders of Jared Goff, the No. 1 draft pick finally makes his NFL debut Sunday.Ndamukong Suh, Cameron Wake and the Miami Dolphins cant wait to welcome him to the league.Goff will take his first NFL snap at the Coliseum, where frustrated fans chanted the rookie quarterbacks name two weeks ago during another dismal offensive performance by their Rams (4-5).With their playoff hopes in danger of evaporating despite last weeks win over the Jets, the Rams have made the inevitable move.I learned a lot about how the league works, Goff said. How Sundays work, how the practice week works, how you work in the classroom and everything in between, Ive learned. Im thankful for everything that Ive gathered over the last however many weeks its been, but at the same time, I think its time. I think Im ready to move forward and play.Goff gets no easy task for his first start: The Dolphins (5-4) are on their first four-game winning streak since 2008, capped by last weekends victory at San Diego.They spent the past week in a minicamp of sorts on the California coast, taking a week away from Florida for bonding and preparation.Miami has one of the NFLs least effective pass defenses, ranking 28th in the league entering the weekend.But the Dolphins also have 22 sacks already this season, including 12 during their winning streak with a pass rush led by the fearsome Suh and Wake.Its just another quarterback, Suh said of facing Goff. Hopefully, Im assuming theyre going to run the same offense, but you never know. Well be ready for all things thrown at us.Scouting Goff is tough for the Dolphins because his three seasons in the Bear Raid spread offense in Berkeley have little resemblance to anything hell do Sunday.But Goff played for the Rams in the preseason, and offensive coordinator Rob Boras has said the Rams wont alter their offense extensively to make the change from Case Keenum to Goff. That means Miami will face much the same schemes that have left Los Angeles 31st in total offense and last in the league in scoring.Our ability to at least tell our players (about Goffs) strengths and weakness is very limited, Dolphins coach Adam Gase said.We have to be very sharp within the game of trying to figure out what they could possibly lean on, or go to that he does really well, and maybe try to figuree out what possibly could give him problems. Custom Detroit Red Wings Jerseys. Here are more things to watch when the Dolphins play in Los Angeles for the first time since 1988:RUNNING STOP: Goffs debut will be a bit more difficult because the Rams still cant run the ball nine games into the season. Todd Gurley and his offensive line are 29th in the league in rushing offense, and the running backs 64 yards last week against the Jets were the most he has compiled in a month. Whats more, Miami has the NFLs sixth-ranked rushing defense.SHUFFLED LINE: The Dolphins are 0-2 this season without Branden Albert, and hell be absent again Sunday because of a dislocated left wrist. That means Miami must shuffle its line while facing a defense ranked sixth in the NFL.We have a big test ahead of us, especially with this front, Gase said. Its going to be a challenge, considering weve played four teams that have really good fronts, and this might be the best one that were about to face.Albert was sidelined earlier by an illness and ankle injury. Hell be replaced by first-round draft pick Laremy Tunsil, who will move from left guard to tackle, his position in college.When he bumps out to left tackle, thats like riding a bike for him, Gase said.FULL STOP: The Rams are staying on the edge of playoff contention with another dominant season from the defense led by defensive tackle Aaron Donald, linebacker Alec Ogletree and cornerback Trumaine Johnson. Los Angeles has held its past three opponents under 18 points, and two of its three wins have come without an offensive touchdown by the Rams.HANGING ONTO THE BALL: The Dolphins offense hasnt committed a turnover during the winning streak, and Tannehill has thrown 109 passes without an interception in the past four games.Gase praised Tannehills decision-making, along with cohesion he has developed with the receiving group.We really feel like were in a decent groove as far as what were doing from week to week, Gase said.Tannehill threw seven interceptions in the first five games, four of them losses. Eliminating turnovers has helped the Dolphins score at least 27 points in every game during the winning streak. They reached that total only twice all of last season.---For more NFL coverage: and Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys' ' '
RIO DE JANEIRO -- The main ramp of Marina da Gloria, the sailing venue of the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, partially collapsed Saturday. Joe Mullen Blues Jersey . No one was injured, organizers said, but the incident raises further questions about the quality of construction in the Olympic host city.Philip Wilkinson, a spokesman for the Rio 2016 organizing committee, placed the blame on high tides and a stormy sea. The collapsed structure, which is temporary, is the main access point for boats to reach the water.Wilkinson also said the construction company responsible for the project has been contacted and is expected to make the repairs within four days. Sailing competitions begin Aug. 8.Training will not be affected because the boats can use the permanent ramp to the side of the damaged structure, the Rio 2016s spokesman said.International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams said it would be wrong to make a great deal of the Marina da Gloria incident.In the run-up to the games, things happen, Adams said.World Sailing said in a statement that it is following closely the efforts to fix the ramp. Spokesman Malcolm Page said that a coach boat pontoon was also damaged on Saturday.In another incident caused by strong winds in Rio, water inundated TV studios on Copacabana Beach near the volleyball arena. Iron boards were used to contain the waves.Rios construction standards have been under heavy criticism since April, when a new elevated bike path that was heralded as a top legacy project of the Rio Olympics collapsed, killing two people.On Saturday a much-delayed subway extension was inaugurated. It will open on Aug. 1 to link the Ipanema and Copacabana beach areas to the western suburb of Barra da Tijuca, site of the Olympic Park. The line will be available only to event ticket holders, athletes and media covering the games.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- With one last chance for a gold medal in whats probably her last Olympics, Vivian Cheruiyot turned to -- who else -- Usain Bolt for a pre-race pep talk.Guess what? It worked.The Kenyan said she shared a few words with Bolt before her 5,000-meter final at the Olympic Stadium on Friday. Then she ran down world champion and heavy favorite Almaz Ayana to win a long-awaited first Olympic title. She also set a new games record.It was my fourth Olympic Games and I had not got gold, the 32-year-old Cheruiyot said. Almaz can go fast ... Today I said, `I am going to follow her. I am not going to lose her.Ayana set a world record to win gold in the 10,000 meters a week ago and opened a big gap in Fridays 5K final. But the Ethiopian suddenly faded and Cheruiyot and Kenyan teammate Hellen Obiri saw their chance.Cheruiyot surged, breezing past Ayana with around two laps to go to win in 14 minutes, 26.17 seconds, breaking an Olympic record that has stood for 16 years. Obiri followed home in second for silver, 3.60 seconds behind Cheruiyot for a Kenyan 1-2.Ayana, who was tipped to have a crack at the 5,000 world record in the final after missing it by just a second in June, slumped and held on grimly for third in 14:33.59.I saw her, I saw shes not running smoothly and also she was slow, Cheruiyot said. She was not going good and we were coming, and I said to Hellen, `lets go, lets go. We are going to get something.The victory gave Cheruiyot revenge for her second-place finish behind the Ethiopian in the 10,000 earlier in these games and finally put her on the top of the podium at her fourth Olympics, and after a silver and a bronze at London 2012, and another silver a week ago.All three medalists crossed inside the former Olympic record of 14:40. Paul Stastny Blues Jersey. 79 set by Romanias Gabriela Szabo at the Sydney Olympics in 2000. Not surprisingly, the five top finishers were all from Kenya or Ethiopia.The 24-year-old Ayana, completely dominant in the 10,000, was expected to challenge Ethiopian compatriot Tirunesh Dibabas world record of 14:11.15 in the 5,000 final. Halfway through she had taken control after an early break by Japans Miyuki Uehara and opened a big gap on the chasers.But, on a warm night in Rio, Cheruiyot paced herself better, sinking Ayanas bid for a 5,000-10,000 double at her first Olympics.Nikki Hamblin, the runner whose act of sportsmanship alongside American Abbey DAgostino in the 5,000 meters heats warmed hearts at the Olympics, finished last in the final in 16:14.24 -- still a personal best for the New Zealander.I went out there and I tried to compete, I tried as hard as I could, Hamblin said. I hung on for a while and then the move came and I didnt have the legs.The two were involved in one of the feel-good moments of the games when they collided in their heat and both tumbled. DAgostino first helped Hamblin to her feet and encouraged her to finish the race. The American then realized she had sustained a bad knee injury. Hamblin returned the favor by helping her, and DAgostino finished the race while grimacing in pain with torn knee ligaments.Both runners were given a place in Fridays final because of the collision but DAgostino didnt run because of her knee injury.Hamblin said shed now re-live the moment on TV.Probably have to go back and re-watch it and have a cry about it and relive the Olympic moment, she said.

The Big 4 of mens tennis is enthusiastic about their sports place in the Olympics, unlike their counterparts in golf. Chris Mullin Jersey .Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal all have participated in the Summer Games in the past, all own a medal, and all talk about that events importance to tennis every four years -- even if it already has four Grand Slam tournaments every year.And while Federer wont be in Rio, its only because he is sitting out the rest of the season entirely to protect his surgically repaired left knee.To get a sense of how these guys think, consider what Britains Murray said when he was asked about Brazil the day after winning Wimbledon for the second time.Ive loved being in the two Olympics that Ive been at, said the No. 2-ranked Murray, who won a gold in singles at the 2012 London Games. Rio is obviously a big, big goal of mine, and hopefully I can perform well there.The No. 1-ranked Djokovic won a singles bronze for Serbia at the 2008 Beijing Games, then came up just short of a medal four years ago.No. 3 Federer won gold for Switzerland in doubles with Stan Wawrinka eight years ago, and a silver in singles four years ago.No. 4 Nadal won a singles gold for Spain in Beijing, missed London because he was hurt, and appealed to the International Tennis Federation to allow him to compete in Rio after he failed to fulfill Davis Cup commitments because of injuries.Even if this quartet owns a combined 46 Grand Slam titles, the Olympics still matter to them. Much will be made of the contrast between this groups interest in the Summer Games and what happened in golf, which will be missing Jordan Spieth, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy in Rio.Olympic Games are the most renowned and most prominent sports event in the history of sport. No question about it. There is no bigger sports event than Olympic Games, Djokovic said. For me, as a professional athlete, its a huge honor to be part of it.Here are some things to know about tennis at the Rio Olympics:WHOS MISSINGThere are some noteworthy players in addition to Federer who wont be there: Bob and Mike Bryan, the American twins who won gold in doubles four years ago, plus nine of the top 22 men in the July 25 ATP singles rankings. That includes Wimbledon runner-up Milos Raonic of Canada; Wimbledon semifinalist Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic; the top American man, John Isner; Australias best two tennis players, Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic; and Dominic Thiem, who would have given Austria a chance at a medal. Four of the top 20 women are missing, as is five-time major champion Maria Sharapova, who is serving a doping ban.MIXING IT UPNo one will know exactly who is competing in mixed doubles until everyone is in Rio. Thats because the sign-in happens there. Its limited to 16 teams, and the possibilities are intriguing. The expectation is that, if hes healthy, Nadal will team with French Open champion Garbine Muguruza. The bad news: It sounds as if the Williams sisters will not enter that event.AGE IS JUST A NUMBERIf 34-year-old Serena Williams or 36-year-old Venus Williams wins a gold medal, either would be the third-oldest woman to collect an Olympic title in tennis. Winifred McNair was 43 when she won womens doubles for Britain all the way back in 1920, and Hazel Wightman was 37 when she won the same event for the U.S. four years later. Each Williams already owns four medals (all gold), so adding two more -- theyre both entered in singles and doubles -- would put either in first place for most tennis medals in Olympic history. Kathleen McKane won five medals (one gold) in the 1920s.MOST APPEARANCESIndias Leander Paes will be appearing in his record-extending seventh Olympic tennis competition, pairing in mens doubles with Rohan Bopanna. Paes owns one medal, a bronze in singles at the 1996 Atlanta Games. In Grand Slam action, he has won eight titles in mens doubles, and another 10 in mixed doubles.BACK-TO-BACK?No player has won two consecutive gold medals in singles.

TORONTO - Josh Johnson didnt last long enough to get the victory as the Blue Jays season-high winning streak extended to six with Mondays 2-0 win over the Colorado Rockies. Joe Mullen Blues Jersey . But he was dominant over seven and a third, the most innings hes logged in a single game this season and, as is the mantra for starting pitchers these days, Johnson gave his team a chance to win. “Great outing,” said manager John Gibbons. “You look at since hes been back, two out of the three have been dominating performances. That game in San Francisco, of course he came up with the blister, but this is the first one back since then. He had everything going on. A good live fastball that had a lot of jump on it and a good breaking ball.” Johnson struck out a personal season-high 10 hitters, becoming just the second Jays pitcher this year to fan double digits (R.A. Dickey punched out 10 Giants on May 14.) Mixing his mid-90s fastball with devastating curveballs and sliders, he had a bulldog mentality in holding Colorado to five hits. “Just aggressive, a lot more aggressive than the last outing,” said Johnson. “Just trying to pound the zone, throw my slider, throw my curveball, kind of both sides of the plate, mostly in to lefties but it worked out.” “He needed that. Hes looking to bounce back and contribute and I think he felt really good tonight,” said Gibbons. Brett Cecil finds his niche Brett Cecil came on in relief of Johnson with one out in the eighth inning. The Rockies had runners at second and third in what still was a scoreless game. He induced a lineout from Carlos Gonzalez, one of the National Leagues premier left-handed hitters, and after an intentional walk to Michael Cuddyer, got a ground ball from Todd Helton to end the threat. Consider Cecils role in the Blue Jays bullpen today: hes become Gibbons left-handed go-to guy. A little less than three months ago he was approached by a group of reporters at his locker in Dunedin. Cecil had just emerged from a meeting in which hed been informed hed made the team as a long man in the bullpen. There had been doubt and had he not had such a good spring, he may have been cut. By the way, Cecils intentional walk of Cuddyer snapped a streak of 25 consecutive hitters retired dating back to May 31. Reyes and Morrow return to game action After playing in simulated games on Friday and Saturday, Jose Reyes returned to pro ball action on Monday for the first time since severely spraining his left ankle on April 12 in Kansas City. Reyes went 2-3 with two singles, two runs scored and a strikeout playing five innings for Single-A Dunedin. Meantime, Brandon Morrow made his first of what will be either two or three rehab starts. Morrow, on a 50-pitch count ceiling, allowed three runs on five hits over two innings. Manager John Gibbons says he expects Reyes and Morrow to play for either Double-A New Hampshire or Triple-A Buffalo. Theres no firm timeline for either players return. With a run of 10-straight games against American League East rivals starting on Friday, its reasonable to expect Reyes to rejoin the club if not for the beginning of the stretch, shortly into it. Dome no home for Rockies With the loss Monday night, Colorados franchise record at Rogers Centre dropped to 0-7. Robert Bortuzzo Jersey . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. Kevin Shattenkirk Jersey .

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The New York Jets waived tight end Brian Parker on Tuesday after he failed his physical and signed safety Antonio Allen.Parker was acquired on waivers from Kansas City on Sunday.

NEW YORK -- For the second time this week, the New York Rangers used a strong third period at home to beat the Carolina Hurricanes. Alex Pietrangelo Jersey .Chris Kreider scored twice 4:46 apart late in the third period to lift the Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the Hurricanes on Saturday.We found a way in the third period, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault said. When the game was on the line, to play our best hockey to get two points, well take it and get ready for the next game.On Tuesday night, the Rangers trailed 2-0 before pulling within one in the second and scoring twice in the third to beat Carolina 3-2.Derek Stepan had a goal and two assists and Michael Grabner also scored, and Mats Zuccarello had two assists for the Rangers. Henrik Lundqvist stopped 21 shots to bounce back from a shaky outing at Buffalo two nights earlier and pick up his 11th win of the season.New York is also now 8-0-1 after a loss this season, and has not lost consecutive games in regulation. The Rangers also improved to 21-3-0 in the last 24 meetings with Carolina at Madison Square Garden.Were like all the teams, we need our goaltender to be one of our best players and we need our other best players, whether theyre Ds or forwards, to play at the level theyre supposed to, Vigneault said. Theres no doubt that Kreids (Kreider) did that tonight.Kreider scored the tiebreaking goal with 7:35 left as he knocked in a rebound past Hurricanes goalie Michael Leighton. Kreider then made it a two-goal game with 2:49 remaining as his shot from the left side rang off the post and deflected back in off Leighton,There was a big difference in our game, more energy, more speed to our game, Lundqvist said of the Rangers play in the final period compared to the first two. It felt like they wanted it a little bit more for two periods, but I think in this league a lot of times games are decided in the third. Teams try to stay close and then in the third you try to make that final push to make the differenceViktor Stalberg and Victor Rask scored for Carolina and Leighton finished with 24 saves in his second start of the season. The Hurricanes concluded a three-game road trip and fell to 1-4-1 in their last six games.You got to be able to spend more time in the offensive zone, Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. When you are not in the offensive zone that means you are going to spend too much time defending. And we did that in the final 20 minutes.Carolina (9-10-5) had a strong first period, outshooting the Rangers 15-3, but Stepans goal 4:05 in gave New York a 1-0 lead. Kevin Klein joined the rush and crashed the net which allowed Stepan to control his own rebound and open up the scoring. The referee initially waived off the goal, but it counted after a review.Stalberg, who scored twice in the Hurricanes loss here Tuesday night, tied it as he beat Lundqvist with a wrist shot on the glove side. Rangers captain Ryan McDonagh tried to skate the puck out of trouble but turned it over in the neutral zone leading to Carolinas odd man rush.He fits the modern game, a big guy, that can skate well, Peters said of Stalberg. Thats what he does. Hes a guy that makes it hard (on the opponent).Defenseman Brett Pesce, a native of suburban Tarrytown, picked up the primary assist on Stalbergs goal.Grabner picked up his 13th of the season to put the Rangers up 2-1 at 5:54 of the third.Peters challenged the goal, claiming the play was offside before New York entered the zone, but the referee announced the video review was inconclusive.Rask tied it just 32 seconds later with his ninth goal of the season and 99th career NHL point as his slap shot from the point beat Lundqvist.Game notes The Rangers 13-game home winning streak against Carolina is the longest home winning streak the Rangers have posted against one opponent in franchise history. .

In a story Nov. 7 about the Detroit Lions, The Associated Press reported erroneously that if the season ended now, the Lions would be in the playoffs as a wild card. Washington (4-3-1) actually leads Detroit (5-4) by percentage points for the final spot.A corrected version of the story is below:Another tight victory pulls Lions closer to 1st placeBy NOAH TRISTERAP Sports WriterALLEN PARK, Mich. -- In every game theyve played this season, the Detroit Lions have been trailing or tied at some point in the final two minutes of regulation.Perhaps thats why they approached last weekends predicament at Minnesota with so much poise.Down three with 17 seconds remaining and no timeouts, Matthew Stafford completed a 27-yard pass to Andre Roberts. Then the Lions calmly rushed to the line, and Stafford was able to spike the ball, setting up Matt Praters 58-yard field goal that tied it. Detroit beat the Vikings 22-16 in overtime .I think you have to attribute it to the guys that we have on the field, coach Jim Caldwell said. They function pretty well in tight situations. Its that old saying about, you dont rise to the occasion but you sink to the level of your preparation, and our guys have prepared I think pretty well.The Lions (5-4) have had plenty of drama already this season, with every game decided by seven points or fewer. They needed field goals in the final two minutes to beat Indianapolis, Philadelphia and Los Angeles -- and Praters kick against Minnesota saved Sundays game. Detroit also beat Washington last month on a touchdown with 16 seconds remaining.Add it all up, and the Lions are a half-game out of first place in the NFC North as they head into their bye week. Its a far cry from where Detroit was during its open date last season, which came after the Lions got off to a 1-7 start.Detroit shook up its front office during its bye week llast season, firing general manager Martin Mayhew and team president Tom Lewand. Brian Sutter Blues Jersey. The Lions won six of their final eight games after that. It wasnt enough to salvage the season, but the playoffs are in reach in 2016.After falling behind 16-13 on Sunday when Minnesota scored a touchdown with 23 seconds left, the Lions took over at their own 25. Golden Tate caught an 8-yard pass and went out of bounds, then Stafford found Roberts in the middle of the field.Detroit hustled to the line, being careful to line up properly and avoid a penalty. Stafford spiked the ball with 2 seconds left, and Praters kick was down the middle.That is perfect execution from everybody, said Tate, who ended up scoring the winning touchdown in overtime. That situation with 23 seconds and no timeouts, I wont say were done, and mentally you know it is not over until it says zero on the clock.Caldwell said his players practice situations like that and have developed confidence.We go through every conceivable situation in the league, he said. If we see some that are a little precarious and a little tough ... well say, `Hey, Im going to use that one for our mock this particular week. We take those real-life examples and utilize those to try to test our team. More often than not, we take a few timeouts off of it so we make them operate with no timeouts rather than giving them a crutch.After their weekend off, the Lions have a winnable home game against a last-place Jacksonville team, and their final three home games after that are against NFC North opponents.Detroit has been in some difficult spots this season, but the Lions have turned enough of those late-game deficits into wins that theyll have a lot to play for down the stretch.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessees John Kelly started making an impression on his teammates before he ever got a chance to deliver an impact on the playing field.Those same teammates have no doubt that Kelly will capably fill the giant hole that Alvin Kamaras injury and Jalen Hurds departure have created in Tennessees rushing attack.In my opinion, hes one of the best backs in the SEC, Tennessee offensive tackle Brett Kendrick said.Thats a pretty bold statement about someone who has never started a college game. Kelly, who has 73 career carries in two seasons, is expected to make that first start Saturday when Tennessee (5-3) hosts Football Championship Subdivision program Tennessee Tech (3-5).Kelly was overshadowed much of the season by Tennessees running back tandem of Kamara and Hurd. Kamara will miss a second straight game this week with an unspecified injury, and Tennessee coach Butch Jones announced Monday that Hurd had informed the team of his intent to transfer.That leaves Kelly as Tennessees main running back for the time being as the Vols attempt to snap a three-game losing streak .Jones says Kelly had emerged as a team leader well before this opportunity arose.Hes one of those individuals that has kind of been a behind-the-scenes, in-the-locker-room, on-the-sidelines type (of) leader, Jones said.Kelly already made quite a statement last week in a 24-21 loss to South Carolina . The sophomore from Detroit rushed for 94 yards on 14 carries that night. His teammates combined to run for 42 yards on 23 carries.I know my coaches trust me, no matter what the situation is, Kelly said after the South Carolina game. When Im out there, Im just out there playing the game tthat I always play. Al Macinnis Blues Jersey. So its really nothing new to those guys.Indeed, the Vols say theyve been impressed with Kelly ever since his arrival on campus. Jones considers Kellys rise up the depth chart a testament to the sophomores resolve and perseverance.Hes kind of the heart and soul of toughness, Jones said.Defensive end LaTroy Lewis recalled how he watched practices in the summer of 2015 while recuperating from an injury. Lewis naturally paid attention to Kelly because they both wear No. 4, and he immediately noticed the running backs tenacity.He just ran so hard, whether it was a negative play that he was making (into) a 2-yard gain or he was busting out a 30-yard gain, Lewis said.Kelly displayed that same approach against South Carolina.Hes a very passionate runner, quarterback Joshua Dobbs said. He wants the ball in his hands. He does a great job of getting yards after contact, breaking tackle, just getting the ball north and south and not running east and west. Thats exactly what we need.He also plays with the type of verve that motivates his teammates. Kendrick loves talking about how Kelly continually took hits last week and then bounced right back up and got ready for his next carry.Ive never seen anyone run as angry as John Kelly, Kendrick said.Kelly also uses the word angry to describe his running style and says that was a feature of his game long before he ever got to Knoxville.I just feel like Im just running the way Ive been running since I was a kid, Kelly said.---More AP college football: Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys' ' '
NEWARK, N. Andrew Ference Jersey .J. -- The Montreal Canadiens tried hard to move into the NHLs top ten in the first round, but the team they were in discussions with ultimately decided to use its own selection. "The price was big and we were willing to pay, but it didnt work," Habs GM Marc Bergevin said Sunday night, explaining he made an offer that included draft picks and players. Ultimately, Bergevin said he was very satisfied with the player the Canadiens ended up getting with their first choice, right-winger Mike McCarron. McCarron is listed at six foot five, 228 pounds and would provide the Habs with much-needed size up front. "This is a very physical player and he has character," Bergevin said. "Hes still very young, and he will put on weight and get stronger. He has really good potential." The Michigan native, selected 25th overall, has been compared to Milan Lucic, the Boston Bruins forward who has given the Habs headaches in recent years. He played last year with the U.S. National Team Development Program, where he had 11 goals, 18 assists and 166 penalty minutes in 49 games. He was ranked 35th among North American skaters according to NHL Central Scouting. McCarron said he wants to be the type of player that can be effective up and down the lineup. "I feel I can be effective on a fourth line and a first line," he said. "I can mix things up on the fourth line and create plays on a first." His Canadian Hockey League rights belong to the London Knights, but its possible McCarron could go the college route. He signed a letter of intent with the Western Michigan Broncos, who are headed by former NHL coach Andy Murray. McCarron said he would speak to his advisers and make a decision in a week. The Canadiens had three more picks in the second round. With their 34th overall choice, the Habs picked centre Jacob de la Rose. He is listed at 6-2, 176 pounds and had six goals and six assists in 38 games for Leksand in the Swedish Division 2 league. Hes pegged as a potential third-liner. "I need to improve several aspects of my game, but I really want to work on my offence," he said. Two picks later, the Canadiens selected the first goalie of the draft, Zachary Fucale of the Halifax Mooseheads. The Rosemere, Que.-native posted a 2.35 goals against average in 55 games last year as he guided the Mooseheads to the Memorial Cup. Asked about the pressure of playing in his hometown alongside Carey Price, Fucale said he wanted to take things one step at a time and climb up the teams depth ladder quickly. "For now, I want to savour this moment," he said. With the 55th overall pick, the team grabbed Artturi Lehkonen, who played last year in the Finnish Elite League. The five-foot-nine, 163 pound left-winger had 14 goals and 16 assists in 45 games. The Canadiens have often between criticized for missing out on local talent. But on Sunday, they grabbed four players from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Along with Fucale, the Habs picked the Swiss native Sven Andrighetto from the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (No. 86), Martin Renway from the Gatineau Olympiques (No. 116) and Jeremy Gregoire from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar (No. 176). Andrighetto, a small, 20-year-old winger, was a force in junior last year with 98 points in 53 games. He aims to start next season with the Hamilton Bulldogs. Gregoire, a forward who some thought would go earlier in the draft, had an up-and-down season. "I know what Im worth and Im looking forward to showing it," he said. "Im really happy to get picked by the Canadiens." The Canadiens also just missed out on a chance to get P.K. Subbans brother, Jordan. Bergevin said the Habs were interested in the defenceman, but the Vancouver Canucks snatched him up with pick number 115, right before the Canadiens were set to go. The Canadiens opted to trade away their seventh round pick, 206th overall, to the Florida Panthers their seventh round pick in 2014. Mark Letestu Oilers Jersey . Pence singled in the winning run with no outs in the ninth inning to give the Giants a 7-6 victory over the San Diego Padres on Sunday. Jordan Eberle Jersey . Ibaka equaled a career high with 20 rebounds, adding four blocked shots and 15 points as the Thunder smothered the Milwaukee Bucks offence in a 92-79 victory Saturday night. . The nimble-footed quarterback got his wish, dashing through the snow and a weary defence all the way into the NCAA record book.Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at! Hey Kerry, The question I have is about injured players. During Game 6, Corey Crawford told the referee his helmet was loose and the ref stopped play while the Bruins had possession in the Hawks end. Ive seen a regular season game where Rask had to play without a helmet for what seemed like an eternity before play was stopped. What is the ruling on goalies and helmets and when should a referee stop play and also what constitutes a serious injury? Andrew Shaw blocked a shot and went down so the ref stopped play immediately while the Bruins had the puck. He got stitched up and came back that game. When Campbell blocked a shot and went down, he was forced to play almost a minute (killing a penalty) with a broken leg. In my opinion, that is a far more serious injury then a little cut on the cheek!Id love to hear your feedback - as a hockey fan of 30 years, some calls or non-calls just seem inconsistent, especially when there is so much on the line. Thanks Kerry,Ryan Boyce Hi Ryan: Thank you for submitting the final 2012-13 question of the day on Cmon Ref. The person whose question is chosen for the first and last column of the season is always rewarded with a signed copy of my book, "The Final Call," along with a personalized message of gratitude. I will be forwarding yours along shortly. In response to the first part of your question and with regard to a goalkeeper losing his mask Rule 9.5 states, "When a goalkeeper has lost his helmet and /or face mask and his team has possession of the puck, the play shall be stopped immediately to allow the goalkeeper the opportunity to regain his helmet and/or face mask. When the opposing team has possession of the puck, play shall only be stopped if there is no immediate and impending scoring opportunity." This rule is designed to provide safety for the goalkeeper and as the rule states even if the attacking team has possession of the puck (in this case the Bruins) play would be stopped at once unless there was an immediate and impending scoring opportunity. If play was allowed to continue during a regular season game when Tuukka Rask had lost his helmet I can only assume (and would hope) that the opposition maintained multiple scoring opportunities on the same play. Typically one immediate or impending scoring opportunity should be allowed completion prior to the Referee blowing his whistle. In the case of Cory Crawford notifying the Referee that his mask was broken it would be prudent of the Referee to stop play as a precautionary measure since the Bruins did not have an impending scoring opportunity. Itt takes a special breed of player to stand in front of 100+ mile an hour slap shots on a continual basis. Esa Tikkanen Jersey. There is also no doubt that goalkeepers are provided special treatment in the rules and by the Referees under many different situations. This is just another example. Aside from any safety issue that could result from the goalkeeper continuing with a broken mask there is also a penalty that could be assessed if the goalkeeper was to deliberately remove his face mask in order to secure a stoppage of play. Once a goalkeeper had taken a shot to the head I would always check to make sure he was able to continue. If his mask was broken from the impact of the shot I would also stop play at the first opportunity and prior to a larger problem or injury resulting. In the case where it is obvious that a player has sustained a serious injury, the Referee and/or Linesman may stop the play immediately as per rule 8.1. When a player is stuck in the face with a shot or deflected puck it would become immediately apparent to the Referee (and everyone watching) that a serious injury might have resulted and medical attention would be required immediately. A players face is virtually unprotected unlike his lower extremities. When the face is struck by a puck evidence of excessive blood quickly materializes or in the case of Andrew Shaw the player might seemed dazed or even knocked out. The potential of head trauma, eye damage or facial fractures will dictate that the Official should stop play immediately. In a previous article I wrote what an old school warrior Gregory Campbell was for attempting to defend while hobbling on a broken leg. The extent of Gregorys injury was not immediately revealed since his huge heart took over and he refused to lie down and wait for a whistle. Given the protected area where Gregory blocked the shot, along with his Herculean effort, we cant fault the Referee for not stopping play. Likewise we should not fault the Referee for stopping play immediately when he determined a serious injury might have resulted when Andrew Shaw was struck in the face by a puck in last nights game. Fortunately, Shaw was able to return to the game after being stitched up. I want to congratulate the Chicago Blackhawks on their amazing season and Stanley Cup victory last night. We must also thank the Boston Bruins for a great effort in providing an extremely entertaining final series.Finally I would like to thank each and every one of you for the thought provoking questions and comments provided to Cmon Ref. Please enjoy a very safe but short off-season with your family. I hope to connect with you once again in some capacity when another exciting NHL season starts back up in October. CMon Ref!
