HOUSTON -- Dallas Keuchel had a simple answer for what was working for him Tuesday night. Authentic Clive Walford Jersey . "Everything," Keuchel said. "I felt good with every pitch." Keuchel (4-2) pitched a seven-hitter for his first major league shutout, leading the Houston Astros over the Texas Rangers 8-0. Keuchel struck out seven without a walk. He gave up just one extra-base hit, a double by Adrian Beltre in the first inning, and threw his second career complete game. "When youre able to plus and minus your fastball and have the type of command that Dallas has, hes able to ... cut the ball into the righties," Houston manager Bo Porter said. "He can sink it away from the righties. He runs it in on the lefties. He has confidence to throw his breaking ball, his changeup in any count." It was the second straight start where Keuchel hasnt walked anyone, which Porter said shows his confidence in attacking the strike zone. Keuchel didnt think that part of his line was a big deal. "I dont really think about that," he said. "When I throw strikes Im good, if I dont Im not very good. So I just have to throw strikes and be good." L.J. Hoes and Carlos Corporan each homered and drove in three runs. The Astros were shut out 4-0 in the series opener, but jumped on Matt Harrison (1-1) for three runs in the second before he left with back stiffness. Hoes hit a two-run homer in the inning. "I felt OK warming up, but looking up (at the radar) I noticed that my velocity just kept going down further and further," Harrison said. "Then I knew at that point, something wasnt right." He said he will go to Dallas on Wednesday to visit a doctor. They were up by four before a four-run fifth inning powered by an RBI single by Hoes and a three-run shot by Corporan. The roof at Minute Maid Park was open to start the game, but it was closed during the eighth inning with a storm approaching. It was the first Astros game where the roof was both open and closed since 2006. Houston was up by four before a four-run fifth inning powered by an RBI single by Hoes and a three-run shot by Corporan. Texas slugger Prince Fielder was thrown out in the fourth, trying to stretch the first of two singles into a double in the fourth. He was initially ruled safe, but Porter challenged the call and it was overturned. Keuchel struck out the side in the second inning and was helped by his defence turning double plays in the third, sixth, seventh and ninth innings. "He was changing speeds really well," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "And when he had to make a pitch, he threw that sinker. We just could not centre it. Everything we hit, we just kept beating it into the ground. And he kept throwing it, and we just kept beating it into the ground." Designated hitter Chris Carter, who entered the game batting just .168, had a season-high three hits, Jose Altuve tripled and doubled and rookie George Springer had an RBI and walked three times. It was the first time since 2006 that a Houston rookie walked three times in a game. Hoes hit his first homer since opening day, a two-run shot to the Crawford Boxes in left field to give Houston a 2-0 lead in the second. Altuve hit a two-out double before Springer walked. Harrison was replaced by Justin Germano after an RBI single by Dexter Fowler made it 3-0. Harrison allowed four hits and walked three before he was pulled after 1 2-3 innings to tie his shortest career outing. He laboured from the start and had already thrown 55 pitches when he left the game. NOTES: Keuchels other complete game came on June 23, 2012, against Cleveland. ... The Rangers will recall Nick Tepesch from Triple-A Round Rock before Wednesdays game to start the finale against the Astros against Scott Feldman. ... Houston general manager Jeff Luhnow said Tuesday that RHP Jose Cisnero will have Tommy John surgery on his right elbow next week. ... Luhnow also said that reliever Matt Albers, who is on the disabled list with right shoulder tendinitis, has some inflammation and wont throw for the next 10 days. Authentic Lorenzo Mauldin Jersey . Mars announced Saturday that the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers will join him as part of his halftime show. Super Bowl halftime performers often have collaborators. Authentic Lac Edwards Jersey . Then Klay Thompson put his foot on the gas. Thompson scored 19 of his 30 points in the fourth quarter and Harrison Barnes scored 14 points in his season debut to help the Golden State Warriors to a 106-93 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night. WINNIPEG -- It may have taken a couple of games, but Tyler Seguin is showing dangerous chemistry with Jamie Benn. The pair lit up the ice Friday night, combining for three goals and four assists in the Dallas Stars 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets. "I think we get better every day," said Seguin, who had two goals and two assists. "Were becoming good friends off the ice and I think thats only going to translate good things on the ice." The addition of centre Rich Peverly also clicked as he assisted on Seguins first goal. Seguin, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 NHL entry draft, came into Friday nights game with only one assist this season in the two games Dallas had played. But the team was well rested after their last home game Saturday and Seguin seemed to respond. Alex Chiasson also scored for Dallas (2-1-0). Blake Wheeler scored Winnipegs only goal. The Jets (2-3-0) have lost three in a row after starting the season 2-0. The Stars havent made the playoffs since 2008, and are hoping to change their fortunes under new coach Lindy Ruff. Theyre looking for some of the magic that got them to the playoffs every season but one in their first 14. They won the Stanley Cup at the end of the 1998-99 season. Benn, named team captain last month, was drafted by the Stars in 2007 and was signed early this year to a five-year $26.25 million contract "Through training camp, pre-season, I feel like every day with practices were getting to know one another and we bring two different games to the table," said Seguin. "It was our first game with Rich Peverly and I thought we jelled pretty well together," added Benn. "We tried to get some shots early and were fortunate enough to get a couple of goals and just kept rolling from there." The Jets did two things theyve been trying to do all season, win the faceoff battle and not get outshot, but still came up short. They won 40 of 64 faceoffs and outshot the Stars 44-31. But playing back-to-back games, they started slower and let Dallas grab a 3-0 lead by the end of the first period. "Were five games in and its still very early and we know what we have in this room," said Jets forward Evander Kane. "I dont think were panicking. Its just frustrating. . . We got a lot of shots at the net tonight but we werent able to get the quality scoring chances." They put oon some of their best pressure in the third period, where Wheeler scored his power-play goal, also his first goal of the season. Authentic Eric Tomlinson Jersey. "We can play like that. We just wait till its 4-0," said Kane. Coach Claude Noel said mistakes in the first period ended up in the net. "We cant make those kind of mistakes and expect that our goaltendings going to save us like it has in the previous games," he said. "We should have been smarter and we should have been better in those areas." But there were positives as he juggled lines through the game. "We just played with a lot more vim and vigour if you will. If we had a game like last night again tonight that would really be a big concern of mine because we really were empty last night. We had no emotion in the game." In the first period, Winnipeg finally won the faceoff contest 15-9, a weak spot in their game recently, but were outshot 15-11 and made costly positional errors. The Jets had their best chance to score on a four-minute power play just over five minutes in, when Valeri Nichushkins stick sent Dustin Byfuglien to the Jets dressing room briefly for a cut to his face. But they lost the last minute of the power-play opportunity when Byfugliens partner Toby Enstrom was sent off for hooking. The Stars made good on their minute with an extra man when Seguin set up Chiasson, who stuffed one under Ondrej Pavelecs pads and Seguin slapped in a drop pass from Rich Peverly a few minutes later. Benn finished the scoring in the first by tucking Brendon Dillons rebound behind Pavelecs back at 16:35. Seguin opened the scoring in the second to make it 4-0 when he slapped one into the net from the right faceoff circle, after both Winnipeg and Dallas had failed to connect on power-play chances. Dallas netminder Dan Ellis took late in the second period after starter Kari Lehtonen left with an injury. Wheeler finally beat Ellis at the 5:35 mark of the third when he slipped in a rebound from Byfugliens slapshot on a power play. Despite the time off getting his cut attended to, Byfuglien played a team high 24:41 minutes. Notes: Friday nights game was the fifth in a row where the Jets have scored a power-play goal, including a five-on-three Thursday night in St. Paul. They failed to score on a five-on-three last season and had the worst power-play percentage in the NHL. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens JerseysCheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys ' ' '

JERSEY CITY, N. Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic .J. -- Pete Carroll said it was the suspension of linebacker Bruce Irvin last spring that finally got the attention of the rest of the Seattle Seahawks that they needed to be taking their commitment to the team more seriously. Seattles past problems with drug suspensions -- both performance-enhancing and substance abuse -- were brought up again on Wednesday. Carroll was expansive, going back to Irvins PED suspension last May as a turning point for the team. Carroll says the motto "Seahawks 24/7" that became a team slogan this season was born out of Irvins suspension. Carroll says his young team finally realized the importance of being responsible not just on the field but off as well. Seattle has seen seven players suspended for substance or PED violations since 2011.Martin Prado Jersey .

The Florida Panthers finished with the second-worst record in the regular season, missing the playoffs for the 12th time in the past 13 seasons. Ivan Rodriguez Jersey. Its been a rough road, but maybe things are looking up. After all, the Panthers did win the draft lottery. Off-Season Game Plan looks at a Panthers club that has a mix of aging vets and unproven young players, with very few in their prime years. That roster composition is could force some difficult decisions upon the Panthers. Its one thing to build around the likes of Aleksander Barkov, Nick Bjugstad and the upcoming No. 1 pick, knowing that it will take a few years before they are impact players in the league, but the Panthers best players right now are 35-year-old G Roberto Luongo and soon-to-be 35-year-old D Brian Campbell. If they are going to be part of the Panthers success, that success likely has to come very soon. "Were moving forward. Im going to fix it," GM Dale Tallon said at seasons end. "Were going to add the pieces to help these kids get where they need to be." The Panthers could be aggressive to make moves for immediate help, feeling emboldened by the financial backing of new owner Vinnie Viola, but its not easy to turn young players and prospects into players in their prime. The long view might be to take that time and let those young players develop, but with the Panthers making a big splash move to get Luongo, there ought to be some sort of urgency to win in the near future. For a team that has made the playoffs once in this century, maybe that urgency should have come sooner and it sounds like Tallon is prepared to get to work this summer. "We have a lot of assets," Tallon told the Miami Herald. "We have a lot of kids who are in college, 10 picks next year, a lot in the system. Im open to any suggestions that make us better quicker without jeopardizing our future." The TSN.ca Rating is an efficiency rating based on per-game statistics including goals and assists -- weighted for strength (ie. power play, even, shorthanded) -- Corsi, adjusted for zone starts, quality of competition and quality of teammates, hits, blocked shots, penalty differential and faceoffs. Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be around 70, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90.

Health has been an issue for veteran winger Sean Bergenheim, as hes missed 19 or more games in five of the past six seasons, but he plays a strong two-way game and generates enough shots that he can score a little bit even if hes not a high-percentage finisher. Though hes never scored more than 17 goals in a season, Bergenheims 11.23 shots per 60 minutes (5-on-5) over the past three seasons ranks sixth. He gets the puck to the net. Health has also been an issue for winger Scottie Upshall, but he played 76 games in 2013-2014 -- the second time in his career that hes played more than 75 games -- and finished with a career-best 37 points. He tends to be a decent possession player and plays a feisty game when he manages to stay in the lineup. Two seasons removed from a career-high 27 goals and 61 points, winger Tomas Fleischmann endured a brutal year in which he scored eight goals and 28 points in 80 games, his lowest scoring totals since his 29-game rookie season of 2006-2007. Scoring on just 4.3% of his shots -- one-third the rate of his career average, 12.9% -- does make Fleischmann a solid candidate for recovery this season, and since its the last year on his contract, he may not be around long-term, even if he recaptures his scoring touch. Coming off a shortened 2013 season in which he scored at career-best rates (15 goals, 27 points in 47 games), Tomas Kopecky managed four goals and a dozen points in 49 games last season. Even so, he was a solid possession player and has versatility to move around the lineup as needed. Towering centre Nick Bjugstad led the Panthers with 38 (!!) points and has potential to be a very good two-way centre. He may not have the highest offensive ceiling but, at 6-foot-6, could become a real handful at both ends of the rink as he gets stronger. Veteran winger Brad Boyes topped 20 goals for the first time since 2008-2009, earning a two-year contract extension, and his 18 even-strength goals tied him with Jeff Carter and Eric Staal, among others. The 32-year-old provides stability, but his 0.46 points per game was also the lowest scoring rate of his career. The second overall pick in last years draft, Aleksander Barkov was thrust into a prominent role for the Panthers -- one of two forwards to play at least 17 minutes per game (minimum 25 games played) -- before suffering a knee injury at the Olympics that prematurely ended his season. Before that point, though, Barkov impressed with his two-way game and the 18-year-old holds promise as a bona fide No. 1 centre. The reigning Calder Trophy winner, Jonathan Huberdeau, slumped in his second season, scoring only nine goals and, more troubling, generating only 1.57 shots on goal per game. It was a step back, to be sure, but Huberdeau is still just 20-years-old, so he should be given an opportunity to bounce back and, along with Barkov and Bjugstad, be part of the clubs core group of young forwards. Stuck on the outside looking in when he was with Chicago, Brandon Pirri got a better opportunity once arriving in Florida and was effective enough to warrant a spot. With 101 points in 102 AHL games over the past two seasons, 23-year-old Pirri is ready for the NHL, though getting stronger and improving his play without the puck would improve his odds of not only sticking long-term, but being able to contribute consistently. Another former Blackhawks prospect, 6-foot-6 winger Jimmy Hayes, does have some touch offensively, but he is more dependent on linemates to drive possession, so that could ultimately leave him in the position of battling for a job as the Panthers roster matures. At the same time, with veteran wingers that could be moving on soon enough, Hayes might have an opportunity to be a 20-goal scorer if he can use his size effectively. It would be reasonable enough for the Panthers to press forward with the group they have at forward but, if they are going to harbour ideas about being immediately more competitive, then paying for a scoring winger would really help. Even if Florida may not be a premium free agent destination, they still might want to investigate the possibility of adding the likes of Radim Vrbata, Mike Cammalleri or Milan Michalek, players with some track record of production that could fit in their top six.

He puts up stellar possession stats, plays more than 27 minutes per game for the Panthers and hasnt missed a game in three seasons since arriving in Florida. The 34-year-old has two years remaining on his current contract which should actually make him a target for an enterprising team in win-now mode. The price would likely be steep, but a team in need of a top-pair defenceman could at least force the Panthers (and Campbell, since he has some say over his destination) with an offer comprised of young talent . While 37-year-old Ed Jovanovski made it the long way back from hip surgeries to play in 37 games, perhaps not surprisingly, he wasnt terribly effective. Theres one year left of his contract and Jovo would be a prime buyout candidate because the Panthers would likely be better without him in their top six. Age catches up with all athletes, but especially so in the case of those who suffer major injuries. 24-year-old Colby Robak has been a prospect, it seems, forever, and has played 35 games with the Panthers over the past three seasons. He was serviceable in 16 games in 2013-2014, good enough to figure that, with an economical one-way deal for next season, that he is in a good position to have an NHL job when next season begins. 23-year-old Dmitry Kulikov already has five years of NHL experience and hes a legit top-four defenceman, though one that was spectacularly unfortunate last season, finishing as a minus-26 despite pretty much break-even possession numbers. Only Alexander Edler and Seth Jones had a lower PDO (on-ice shooting plus save percentage) than Kulikovs 96.0. Its not necessarily the optimal long-term approach, but its conceivable that an attractive asset like Kulikov (whose name pops up in trade rumours semi-regularly) could be moved in the summer, in an effort to upgrade the teams offensive talent. There has been some progress with 22-year-old Erik Gudbranson, the third overall pick in 2010, but its been gradual. In an ideal world, hed be able to use his size and physical game in a shutdown defensive role, but Gudbranson hasnt yet been trusted to take on the hard minutes defensively. Hes young enough to hope that there is time to realize that upside. Another former Blackhawk, Dylan Olsen, responded well to the opportunity presented to him in Florida. Olsen didnt play big minutes, and his ice time decreased later in the year, but it was a step forward for the 23-year-old and he was solid enough to have a leg up on the competition for a regular spot on the blueline next year. There are a couple of wildcards for the Florida defence. The first might as well be the number one overall pick in the draft, which could be Barrie Colts D Aaron Ekblad. Hed likely take some lumps as an 18-year-old -- they all do -- but Ekblad would provide a long-term building block on the blueline. The other is unrestricted free agent Tom Gilbert, who was salvaged off the scrap heap after being bought out by Minnesota. Gilbert played more than 21 minutes a night on the top pair with Campbell and was very effective in that role. After making just $900,000 last season, though, Gilbert should be a due a sizeable pay increase on an open market that tends to appreciate top-four calibre defencemen. So, it would be great for the Panthers to keep the 31-year-old around for a few more years, but they will have competition for his services.   Returning Goaltenders Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Cap Hit Roberto Luongo 70.33 56 25 23 7 2.40 .919 $5.333M Dan Ellis 43.63 20 5 11 0 3.62 .879 $900K Free Agent Goaltender Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Class 13-14 Cap Hit Scott Clemmensen 66.80 17 6 7 1 3.08 .896 UFA $1.2M The Panthers decision to bring back Roberto Luongo, acquiring him in a trade from Vancouver, does give them an immediate window to be a competitive club. Over the past five seasons, Luongos .919 save percentage ranks fourth (effectively tied for third with Jaroslav Halak and Ryan Miller) among those with a starters workload and he should be the backbone of this team for the next couple seasons, at the very least. Upon acquiring Luongo, the Panthers jettisoned Tim Thomas to Dallas, in exchange for Dan Ellis, who is still under contract for next season. Ellis had a tough time immediately after the deal, posting an .836 save percentage in six games with Florida, and the 33-year-old has a .905 career save percentage, which isnt ideal, but hes a reasonably-priced backup option behind Luongo.

He needs to get stronger, but is a good skater who can move the puck. The first pick of the second round last year, Ian McCoshen is another defenceman for NCAA-finalist Boston College, though he brings a more physical game than Matheson. Whenever the Golden Eagles duo makes the jump, the Panthers will have a more capable blueline corps. Taken in the second round in 2010, lanky blueliner Alex Petrovic is closer to making the Panthers roster, having skated in 13 games over the past couple seasons. Hes a tough, physical blueliner who has 30 points, a plus-4 rating and 181 penalty minutes in 103 AHL games. Its entirely possible that Vincent Trocheck, a third-round pick in 2011, will open next season with the Panthers. He had 42 points in 55 AHL games to earn a promotion and while he posted a respectable eight points in 20 games with the Panthers, the more encouraging sign from Trocheck was that he handled significant ice time and put up solid possession stats. He doesnt have to start next year in Florida, particularly if any veteran centres are added, but Trocheck is going to play for the U.S. in the World Championships and should be knocking on the door rather loudly. Tiny playmaker Rocco Grimaldi was a second-round pick in 2011, and has 75 points in 82 games over the past two seasons at North Dakota, but until he gets into the pro game, there will be questions over whether the 5-foot-6 forward can produce at the highest level. Only one way to find out the answer to those questions. Drew Shore has logged a lot of NHL games, 67 over the past two seasons, to be considered a prospect, but hes also played 93 AHL games in that time, so hes been on the fringe of the roster. The thing is, he clearly deserves a better look, as hes been a very good possession player in those 67 NHL games. There may be a ceiling on his offensive production, but Shore is a big forward whose game is NHL-ready. A first-round pick in 2010, Quinton Howden has played 34 NHL games over the past couple seasons and hasnt produced much. Two years ago, he had great possession numbers, but couldnt produce any points. This past season, he managed four goals and a couple of assists, but had abysmal possession stats. As it is, hes probably just on the outside looking in, depending on how many extrernal forward acquisitions are made over the summer. A fourth-round pick last summer Michael Downing is a physical defender with good size who had a fine first season at Michigan. Theres no need to rush him, and there are others ahead of Downing in the pipeline, but hes one to watch develop over the next few years. Kyle Rau is a tiny forward who was a third-round pick in 2011 and played with Bjugstad at the University of Minnesota. Rau has put up 123 points in 121 games for the Golden Gophers, so hes going to warrant a look when his collegiate career ends. Like Grimaldi hell get a chance to prove that he can overcome his lack of size. Its never easy to project goaltenders, even those that have steadier collegiate track records than Sam Brittain, but the fourth-round pick from 2010 was very good as a senior at Denver, so now its time to see him at the pro level. A seventh-round pick in 2013, Mackenzie Weegar may not have the defensive game, but his ability to move the puck and run the power play, should get him some consideration in the coming years. Power forward Garrett Wilson, who played three games for the Panthers last season, is another prospect of some note and could make his mark as a physical presence on the fourth line.

EDMONTON - Craig MacTavish said he has spoken to virtually every NHL general manager over the last few weeks, talking possible deals involving draft picks or roster players in an effort to bulk up his team. Authentic John Miller Jersey . The Edmonton rookie GM is heading to Newark, N.J. for Sundays NHL draft determined to add desperately needed size to the Oilers. He said he will be disappointed if he doesnt come home with two or three roster players. "Im motivated to do something to help this current roster," he said. "I want to make sure were at least able to add a big piece with that first pick (No. 7), but outside of that Im pretty open minded to doing anything." The primary need, he explained, was size and depth. "We will try and use some of the existing players that we have now to try to make some trades for the meat that weve all talked about and that everybody has identified as a real area of concern for our team," he said. "My sense is that we try to put together some packages to attract some of those players. We all know the division were going into next year is a strong division. Were going to need big, strong players to compete." He said it will likely take a combination of moving some current roster players and some draft choices. After No. 7, Edmonton has two second-round picks, Nos. 37 and 56, plus one pick each in the fifth, sixth and seventh rounds. MacTavish said he has received some offers for his first-round pick, but nothing "that even remotely would sway me to move that pick." "We know the default option is a good one, were going to get a very good player there," he added. This years draft is considered a deep one and MacTavish is confident there will be several players available at No. 7 who could help the Oilers in the near future, if not immediately. "We realize at seven were going to get one of about four players. Through the course of the last six months … I realized there are a lot of players out there I would be excited to add to our roster and certainly at seven theres a lot." With the deep draft, he expects the second-round picks to become more valuable as Sunday nears. "I feel the most liquid currency in this business are second-round picks and we have a couple of those," he said At the same time, hes not overly anxious to move those picks without what he considers fair compensation in return, keeping in mind the success the early Oilers had with draft picks. They got Mark Messier at No. 48 in 1979 and in 1980 got Hall of Fame defenceman Paul Coffey at No. 6, forward Jari Kurri at No. 69 and goaltender Andy Moog at No. 132. MacTavish said this years Stanley Cup final once again demonstrated the value of having depth, something the Oilers lack with their current roster. "The year we went to Cup final (2006) we had lots of guys who could contribute offensively and last year we really didnt," he said. "We had a lot of one or two or zero goal scorers who were out there … really the best you could hope for was they were a non-negative factor. We have to let the core players continue to develop … and we have to build that supporting cast around them." For that reason, he said the team wouldnt be looking at role players with their later picks, but rather players with skill potential to develop. Role players, he said, could easily be found if needed. MacTavish wouldnt comment on his plans for the two available contract buy-outs this year or what qualifying offers the team intends to make. He did say he is "somewhat optimistic" he can get forward Sam Gagner, the teams second leading scorer with 38 points, signed to a long-term contract. "At some point we have to, as an organization, start rewarding people who really embody the characteristics that we hold in high regard. Sam really fits that. There are a lot of reasons why we want to get Sam on a long-term contract." Authentic Eddie Yarbrough Jersey . -- Crystal Webster avoided elimination at the 2013 Capital One Road to the Roar Olympic pre-trial curling tournament with an 8-5 win over Amber Holland on Thursday. Authentic Vontae Davis Jersey . -- Fantasy football owners and Denver Broncos fans can rest easy: Peyton Manning is back.6) Im not sure how good it makes them, but after the Chicago White Sox answered their four biggest needs by signing closer David Robertson, designated-hitter Adam LaRoche and left fielder Melky Cabrera, and by trading for starting pitcher Jeff Samardzija, has any major league baseball team done better in rebuilding for 2015?7) Wasnt it good of Aaron Rodgers to take the blame for the Green Bay Packers loss in Buffalo? I thought he might complain about the weather--too warm.8) Heres a storyline to follow, and a juicy question if it comes to this--if the Buffalo Bills are alive with a playoff chance when they close the regular season at New England, and if the Patriots have clinched home-field advantage in the AFC, is it likely or unlikely that Bill Belichick would give Tom Brady the day off?9) Do you wish to delve deeper into the formula for a playoff appearance by the Bills? Heres their road map to the AFCs second wild-card spot--Buffalo closes with wins at Houston and Brady-less New England to finish at 10-6, Pittsburgh and Baltimore claim two of three remaining playoff berths and the Bills, at 10-6, wind up ahead of Cincinnati, Kansas City and San Diego. The Bengals are in tough against Denver and the Steelers, and since the Chiefs and Chargers play each other, just one of them can get to 10 wins. If neither does, and the Bills do, Buffalo is in.10) With the Toronto Maple Leafs now contending for the lead in the NHL East, this question comes to mind: How long has it been since the Leafs opened a playoff series at home? It is more than a bit interesting to note that it has been long enough to see five of the Toronto players in that April 8, 2004 playoff opener against Ottawa gain induction to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Those five are Mats Sundin, Ed Belfour, Joe Nieuwendyk, Ron Francis and Brian Leetch.11) Can you tell me how Mike Santorelli can play so well for the Leafs and be tied for 2nd in NHL plus-minus ratings after being traded for a fourth-round draft pick by Nashville, waived by Florida and left unsigned by Winnipeg and Vancouver?12) When the NFL season began with a crackdown on illegal contact by defensive backs, did you think they would adjust and learn to avoid penalties? You were wrong.13) Are you loyal to your pre-season picks, or do you change your mind according to the latest evidence? Last season, I picked Seattle to win the Super Bowl and never saw a reason to change. Authentic Russell Bodine Jersey. This season, I picked Denver and, while Im tempted to change, I will remain loyal, however stubborn that makes me. (I am, or was tempted to switch back to Seattle.)14) I guess you cant think like this when youre an NHL executive, but what must those in charge of the Columbus Blue Jackets say to themselves when they see Jakub Voracek and Rick Nash sitting 3rd and 9th respectively in NHL scoring?15) Do you want proof that times do change? In the NBA, during a 32-year period from 1959 to 1990, 27 NBA titles were won by the Boston Celtics (15), Los Angeles Lakers (6), Philadelphia 76ers, New York Knicks and Detroit Pistons (2 each). In the current NBA standings, none of those teams holds a playoff spot.16) It still boggles the mind that Wayne Gretzky scored almost 1,000 more points than any other NHL player, but isnt it just as amazing that, after moving past Michael Jordan into third place on the NBAs all-time scoring list, Kobe Bryant was still more than 6,000 points behind Kareem Abdul-Jabbar?17) Did the San Francisco 49ers play in three straight NFC championship games because of coach Jim Harbaugh, or did they fail to win a Super Bowl because of coach Jim Harbaugh?18) I suppose I could have been making a mistake, but I didnt watch a minute of Johnny Manziels first NFL start. Did you? Because that would have been a mistake.19) Can you win in the NHL without a good power play? Well, for the first 18 games of this season, you could easily explain the futility of the Buffalo Sabres by pointing to the worst power play in the league. It produced only three goals. The Sabres, suddenly and inexplicably, have caught fire by winning 10 of their last 13 games. During that time, they have scored four power play goals. So thats not it.20) And finally, Sunday night was a good night to be Dallas, with the lone exception having something to do with a sport other than football and a team other than the Cowboys. Are you old enough to take this a step further, with still another "Dallas" reference? J.R. didnt last forever, either. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Bears JerseysCheap Bengals Jerseys ' ' '

BUFFALO, N. Joey Bosa Jersey .Y. - As far as some Buffalo Bills fans are concerned, rock musician Jon Bon Jovi can live on a prayer anywhere but western New York. A Bills fans club recently founded to keep the NFL team in western New York has started an online petition to ban songs by Bon Jovi. The New Jersey rocker has been linked to a Toronto-based developer interested in purchasing a franchise and moving it to Canadas largest city. The founders of 12th Man Thunder are asking Buffalo-area bars to ban Bon Jovis music from being played by DJs, live bands or juke boxes. They say so far 28 businesses have established "Bon Jovi Free Zones." The group says more than 3,500 people have signed its online petition supporting efforts to keep the Bills in western New York. Mike Williams Jersey .J. Ellis hit an RBI single in the ninth inning, Hanley Ramirez hit a tape-measure, three-run homer in the first against Cliff Lee and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Saturday night. Spencer Pulley Jersey .

HEROES Kings top line – Jeff Carter, Marian Gaborik and Anze Kopitar ignited the comeback against St. Louis, leading to a 6-4 win over the Blues. Carter had a goal and three assists, Gaborik had two goals and an assist, and Kopitar racked up a five-points (1 G, 4 A) game. Even with that game, Carter has all of seven points – one goal – in the past 14 games. Gaborik is on a three-game goal-scoring streak, during which he’s scored five goals; he had four goals in his first 18 games of the season. Kopitar, who is playing almost two minutes less per game this season (a career-low 18:54 per game) had four points (1 G, 3 A) in the previous 13 games before breaking out for his career-best five-point game against St. Louis. Nick Foligno – The Blue Jackets’ winger continued his remarkable start to the season with two goals and an assist in a 5-4 overtime loss to Washington. Foligno is the leading scorer among players slated to be unrestricted free agents next summer. On this list, I’ve also included each player’s on-ice shooting percentage, to indicate which players may be primed for regression.

Mika Zibanejad – I’m still pumping these tires. He’s the Senators’ leading scorer in December with nine points (5 G, 4 A) in eight games and, aside from last game, has recently been playing more minutes than earlier in the season. Thomas Hickey – As long as Johnny Boychuk and Travis Hamonic are out, there are more minutes available on the Islanders blueline and Hickey is one of the prime beneficiaries. Mathieu Perreault – After a slow start to the year, Perreault has started to pick up the pace, with seven points (2 G, 5 A) in the past seven games. Cody Eakin – He has a modest 11 point in 27 games this year, with one point in the past six, but Eakin has been moved to the Stars’ first power play unit.

1) Play the first round as currently devised. Uchenna Nwosu Chargers Jersey .2) Re-seed, according to regular-season points, the four first-round winners in each conference, and conduct the second round to create four Stanley Cup semi-finalists. Notice I didnt say four "conference winners". Thats because the conferences cease to exist at this stage.3) The third round will feature Stanley Cup semi-final matchups that are determined, once again, by re-seeding the four remaining teams according to their regular-season points. Obviously, then, teams from different conferences could be playing each other in round three, and just as obviously, two teams from the same conference could be the semi-final winners.4) Voila! A Stanley Cup final that could bring together any two of the 30 NHL teams.The Stanley Cup final should be the NHLs best attraction. It has the built-in difficulty of June dates that make it too easy for hockey fans of 28 other teams to ignore the two that are still playing, especially when those two are not rivals in any other sense. So forgive me when I say that Los Angeles/New Jersey (2012) and Anaheim/Ottawa (2007) and Carolina/Edmonton (2006) were not what wed call "marquee matchups". Under a system that could put any two teams in the Stanley Cup final, such matchups could occur again. But they wouldnt occur as often if their odds of meeting were reduced by 50 per cent, and the introduction of odds allowing for an all-East or all-West Stanley Cup final would inject the playoffs with a difference that could be felt where it matters most—in the last series.If you like the idea, PASS IT ON! Meanwhile, heres David Bowie with "CHANGES". Virgil Green Chargers Jersey . -- Its been 21 years since Joe Gibbs Racing celebrated its only Daytona 500 victory. Mike Pouncey Jersey . -- Lara Gut of Switzerland regained the overall World Cup lead with Sundays super-G win in Lake Louise, Alta.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Toronto Blue Jays look to prolong the Boston Red Soxs recent slide when they open a three-game series tonight at Fenway Park. The Blue Jays start lefty J.A. Happ for the fourth time this season after hed opened on the disabled list and then went to the bullpen. He last started on Thursday and threw six innings of one-run ball in a 4-2 defeat of Cleveland. "Youre always (showing something) to somebody," Happ said. "I felt good, definitely nice to go out there and have a fairly strong outing." Happ has never started at Fenway Park, but hes faced the Red Sox four times and is 1-2 with a 5.06 ERA. Happ will be opposed by fellow southpaw Felix Doubront, who defeated Minnesota on Wednesday for his first victory since April 3. He gave up a single run in 6 1/3 innings against the Twins and has surrendered just two runs in 11 2/3 innings after a five-start skid that yielded no wins, three losses and an ERA near 6. Doubront faced the visiting Blue Jays twice in 2013 at Fenway and was 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA. On Sunday in Texas, Mitch Morelands two-run home run helped the Texas Rangers to a 6-2 win over the Blue Jays in the finale of a three-game set. Edwin Encarnacion and Juan Francisco hit solo homers for the Blue Jays. R.A. Dickey (4-4) lost for the first time in six starts as he was touched for four ruuns on three hits with three walks in 6 1/3 innings. Caleb Sturgis Jersey. "Were definitely going in the right direction but theres more there," Dickey said. "I think we all know it. Todays a game we probably should have won." The Red Sox enter the set having dropped four consecutive games, which already exceeds their longest losing streak of last season -- when they won a world championship under first-year manager John Farrell. Boston has sunk to fourth place in the five-team American League East Division, though its just three games behind the first-place New York Yankees and only a game out of third place, which is currently occupied by the Blue Jays. Toronto has won five of its last seven. The Red Sox have hit just .189 in the four-game slide and the starting pitchers have compiled an unsightly 5.73 earned run average across the last six games. They did score 16 runs in a three-game series with Toronto at Rogers Centre in late April, however, and will return to the road for 24 of the next 36 games after this series. Victor Martinez hit a two-run home run and the Detroit Tigers polished off a three-game sweep of the Red Sox with a 6-2 win. Xander Bogaerts finished 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Red Sox. Jake Peavy (1-2) allowed five runs on 11 hits over six innings. Boston took two of three from the Jays earlier in the year. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys ' ' '

STUTTGART, Germany -- Alisa Kleybanova defeated third-seeded Petra Kvitova 6-2, 7-6 (3) to provide the first major upset at the Porsche Grand Prix on Wednesday. Authentic Brandon Graham Jersey . The 102nd-ranked Kleybanova rallied from 5-3 down in the second set to beat her Czech opponent. It was the Russians first victory against a top-10 player since winning her battle against Hodgkins lymphoma, which kept her out between May 2011 and March 2012. The sixth-ranked Kvitova had been given a bye to the second round and was playing her first match since inspiring the Czech Republic to the Fed Cup final last weekend. Earlier, Ana Ivanovic defeated Sabine Lisicki 6-1, 6-3 to send the Wimbledon finalist out in the first round. Ivanovic, the world No. 12 and former French Open winner, needed just one hour to beat the 24-year-old Berliner.

It left four of the six home players out of the most important German womens competition at the first hurdle. Pennetta will face the fifth-seeded Jelena Jankovic in the second round, with the winner then playing Kleybanova in the quarterfinals. Wild card Julia Goerges gave the supporters reason for cheer with a surprise 6-1, 7-5 win over Romanias Sorana Cirstea. The 94th-ranked German will next face Ivanovic on Thursday.

The International Olympic Committee ruled Friday that Backstrom had not intended to enhance his performance, laying the blame for his positive test for pseudoephedrine on the Swedish team doctor. The Washington Capitals centre was suspended and pulled from the team just hours before the Feb. 23 gold-medal game, which Sweden lost 3-0 to Canada. The Swedes were outraged by the timing of the decision and said it affected the teams performance. The IOC defended the suspension, saying it was "fully justified" because of the positive test and noting that Backstrom conceded also taking the allergy medication on the day of the final. But the IOC ruled that the player should not be kicked out of the Sochi Games altogether, citing "mitigating circumstances." "There was no indication of any intent of the athlete to improve his performance by taking a prohibited substance," the IOCs three-person disciplinary commission said. "As a consequence, the athlete is entitled to receive the silver medal and diploma awarded in respect of the mens ice hockey event." Backstrom tested positive for excess levels of pseudoephedrine after Swedens win over Slovenia in the quarter-finals on Feb. 19. He said the stimulant was contained in "Zytec-D," a medication he had been taking for allergies. The IOC said the positive result in the "A" sample was confirmed on the morning of Feb. Authentic Chance Warmack Jersey. 23. A hearing with Backstrom and Swedish team officials was quickly assembled. Among those attending was Bjorn Waldeback, the Swedish hockey team doctor and chief medical officer of the Swedish Olympic Committee. The IOC said Backstrom had "nothing to hide" and explained he had been taking the allergy medication regularly for seven years on the advice of a doctor and had never produced a positive test. He said he had taken the medication earlier that day. The IOC said Backstrom told the panel he knew the medication contained pseudoephedrine but relied on Waldebacks advice that the dosage would not trigger a positive test. Waldeback said he was "at fault" for that advice. Backstroms backup "B" sample was tested later on Feb. 23 and also came back positive. The IOC ruled that Backstrom committed an anti-doping violation by having the banned substance in his system. But the panel said he had been "open and co-operative," had disclosed the medication on his doping control form and had relied on Waldebacks advice. The IOC ruled that Waldeback "made a serious error" by telling Backstrom his use of the medication would not result in a positive test. If the doctor applies for Olympic accreditation in the future, the IOC should "seriously consider" his role in the case, the panel said. The IOC said the decision "should in no way" be seen as taking away from the responsibility of athletes to be vigilant and ensure that no prohibited substances enter their body. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Browns Jerseys Cheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Broncos JerseysCheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys ' ' '

MUNICH - Bayern Munich finally celebrated winning its 24th German championship on Saturday after the last Bundesliga game of the season. Arsenal Fan Gear . Club captain Philipp Lahm lifted the championship shield to kick off the party in a sea of red and white confetti, after Claudio Pizarros injury time strike secured a 1-0 win over Stuttgart. The traditional wheat-beer showers followed with Pep Guardiola, in particular, singled out for attention by his jubilant players. The former Barcelona coach helped Bayern defend its title with a record seven games to spare in his first season in charge. The effects of the beer showers took their toll on Guardiola when he dropped the championship shield. "Its very nice but its heavy," he said, referring to the 11-kilo trophy. Around 15,000 fans later greeted the side at Marienplatz in the city centre for the presentation of the league trophy from the town hall balcony, following traditional title celebrations. Wearing Bavarian leather trousers like his players, Guardiola told enthusiastic supporters, "I am very proud of this team and we are very proud of you. I love you. Im a Muenchener (person from Munich). Mia san mia!" The party was expected to last long into the night. "You have to celebrate victories and titles," said Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer, who didnt want to set any limits, despite Bayerns German Cup final clash with Borussia Dortmund in Berlin next Saturday. Arsenal Calum Chambers Jersey .com) - Toronto Blue Jays first baseman Edwin Encarnacion has been named the American League Player of the Week for the period ending May 11. Arsenal Rob Holding Jersey . Bilbaos first victory in four rounds lifted it four points clear of Real Sociedad and kept it in command of Spains last Champions League berth for next season. In contrast, Betis was left 11 points from safety after a dismal performance that at times bordered on self-destruction amid some questionable refereeing decisions.PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Russell Henley made good on his second chance at the 18th hole Sunday and won the Honda Classic after a wild day that began with Tiger Woods walking off the course with a back injury and ended with a four-man playoff. The closing hour at PGA National was a series of blunders by the contenders -- and even the winner. Henley was in a three-way tie for the lead, 40 yards left of the flag on the par-5 18th in regulation, when he chunked a chip so badly that it only got halfway to the hole. He had to two-putt for par, and then watched as Rory McIlroy nearly made a great escape from an otherwise bad afternoon. McIlroy, who lost a two-shot lead, hit a 5-wood from 236 yards to just inside 12 feet for an eagle and the win. It narrowly slid by on the right. In the playoff, Henley was the only player to reach the 549-yard hole in two, and he two-putted from about 40 feet for birdie. Ryan Palmer missed a 10-foot birdie putt. McIlroy went from the back bunker to the front collar and had to scramble for par, and Russell Knox laid up and missed a 20-foot birdie attempt. "This isnt going to sink in for a while," Henley said. Thousands of fans who spent hours in the warmth and wind of south Florida surely felt the same way. David Hearn (67) of Brantford, Ont., finished 6-under par to tie with American Will MacKenzie for sixth. Woods abruptly quit after 13 holes and was driven straight to his car. He later said he had lower back pain and spasms, and was unsure if he could play at Doral next week. And then came all the mistakes by four guys trying to win. Palmer missed a 5-foot par in regulation that would have won it. He closed with a 69, the only player in the last six groups to break par. Knox needed a birdie on the last hole, but he went from the fairway bunker to the rough, well over the green and then calmly made a par putt just inside 10 feet for a 71 to get in the playoff. They all finished at 8-under 272. Canadas David Hearn fired a final round 67 to finish two shots off the pace. The conditions were tough. The play was so underwhelming that McIlroy said that if he had won, "It would have felt undeserved in a way." He wont know that feeling. Instead, the 24-year-old from Northern Ireland closed with a 74. It was his second straight tournament in stroke play that he played in the final group and shot 74. He tied for ninth in the Dubai Desert Classic. His undoing came on thee 16th, when McIlroy missed on a 6-iron from the bunker and went into the water, making double bogey. Arsenal Jerseys For Sale. He fell out of the lead for the first time with a bogey from the bunker on the 17th. What should ease the pain was his finish -- a 5-wood he couldnt afford to miss that dropped from the sky to 12 feet left of the hole. "I was fortunate I was in the playoff," McIlroy said. "Seventy-four wasnt good enough to get the job done. To go out with a two-shot lead, you have to play well enough to win the thing. If I had won today, I would have counted myself as lucky. Ill pick myself up, get back it, try to get back at it at Doral and try to get the job done." Henley, who closed with a 72, won for the second time and qualified for the Masters. He also moves into the top 50 in the world ranking, making him eligible for the Cadillac Championship next week at Doral. It was the first playoff at PGA National since 2007, which also featured four players. McIlroy was at 13 under after a birdie on the fifth hole and appeared to be on his way, even after twice making bogey from the bunker to close out the front nine. PGA National was tougher than ever after a weekend of sunshine, and the stiff breeze in south Florida. The average score was 71.8, two shots harder than the third round. The contenders made it look like a beast. Henley tied for the lead by chipping in for birdie on the 14th, only to deposit his tee shot on the par-3 15th into the water for double bogey. Palmer missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole, which wasnt nearly as damaging as the par putts he missed from 8 feet on the 16th and 5 feet on the 18th. Knox fell out of a brief share of the lead when he tried to play from the right rough on the 14th and had his shot carom into the water for a double bogey. At least they were still around. Woods was just a guy in a red shirt at PGA National when he shook hands with Luke Guthrie, his playing partner, and told him he was done. "Too early to tell," Woods said in a statement about playing next week at Doral. "Ill get treatment every day to try to calm it down. Just dont know yet. Wait until Thursday and see how it feels." It was the second straight year that the worlds No. 1 player walked out on the Honda Classic. A year ago, McIlroy was so frustrated with his game that he quit after 26 holes. At least this time, McIlroy stayed until the wild end. It just wasnt the finish he wanted. Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Cheap Cowboys Jerseys Cheap Browns JerseysCheap Panthers Jerseys Cheap Packers Jerseys Cheap Jaguars Jerseys Cheap Broncos Jerseys Cheap Texans Jerseys Cheap Colts Jerseys Cheap Chiefs Jerseys Cheap Falcons Jerseys Cheap Ravens Jerseys Cheap Bills Jerseys Cheap Bears Jerseys Cheap Bengals Jerseys ' ' '
