120 at the American Airlines Center, breaking the mark set

INDIANAPOLIS - Trent Richardson remembers the day he walked through the front doors of Clevelands training facility for the first time. Brian Orakpo Titans Jersey . He was wearing the suit he had on when the Browns called his name with the third pick in the 2012 draft.Pat Shurmur, the head coach of the Browns at the time, met him at the door with a big smile on his face, Richardson recalled.It was one of those feelings that I didnt think I would ever be playing with another team, he said. I thought I would always be there and it would be the last team I ever played for. But it happened like it happened.The Colts acquired the running back from the Browns on Sept. 18, 2013, for a first-round draft pick — a move that shocked Richardson. Now, he and three other Colts players are headed to Cleveland this Sunday for a game against a team, and franchise, they know well.Return specialist Josh Cribbs, who joined the Colts last month as a free agent, signed with the Browns as an undrafted free agent in 2005. Safety Mike Adams played for the Browns for five seasons and DQwell Jackson was drafted by the team in 2006 before he suffered two season-ending injuries.Heck, Colts coach Chuck Paganos first four years in the league as an assistant were in Cleveland.Cribbs left Cleveland after the 2012 season with a handful of records, including the all-time franchise marks in kickoff returns, kickoff return yards, and return touchdowns. Jackson is looking forward to the opportunity to face his former team, but says there wont be any time to spend with friends and former teammates.Im not going to change what I do, Jackson said. In the off-season, if I go back, Ill have dinner with some guys, but right now its a business trip and thats the only thing thats on my mind.For Richardson, its different.What he thought would be a long and successful career in Cleveland has been everything but what he expected. Things havent been the same since the Colts acquired him last year and now Richardson is looking for a breakout game this week against the team that drafted him — and traded him.They gave up on me, Richardson said in a conference call with Browns media on Wednesday. Im going to go into this game like its my last.Richardson has struggled to move the ball in Indy, and the Colts have been criticized for the move and questioned for sticking with the former Alabama star.Pagano made it clear the Colts plan to rely on Richardson as their starter.Theres going to be good days and theres going to be bad days, Pagano said. Hes had some days that have been very, very productive and some tough days.Richardson totalled 12 yards on eight carries against Washington last week. He had 42 yards against Jacksonville the week before, and finished with zero yards on six carries against New England on Nov. 16.Lack of productivity? Richardson sees it more as defences focused on him so much that he cant get into a groove.You know what? People have just been stacking the box, he said. I havent been getting the looks that I was getting earlier in the season. Now that Ahmad (Bradshaw) is down, people are counting on me running the ball. I havent been getting all of the same looks as everybody else.Richardson says that sometimes defences are thrown off when they think hes going to run the ball, but Andrew Luck decides to pass instead.When it comes down to it, I want to say that Ive been doing my job, Richardson said. Anytime I go in with play-action, somebodys wide open. If theyre trying to stop by and Andrew Lucks having a good day or (Daniel Herron) is having a good day, Im doing good because theyre distracted by me.___AP Sports Writer Tom Withers contributed to this report.

Lexie Lou earned a commanding 4 1/2-length win Sunday in the $500,000 Woodbine Oaks.DALLAS -- Kari Lehtonen stopped all 37 shots and the Dallas Stars clearly frustrated the top-seeded Anaheim Ducks. Everything changed in this first-round series when the Stars got their first home playoff game in six years. While Dallas captain Jamie Benn skated out of the penalty box to score first and 19-year-old rookie Valeri Nichushkin added a goal, Anaheims dynamic scoring duo of Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry probably had more punches than shots as the Stars won 3-0 in Game 3 Monday night. "Im pretty sure if you watch the scrums, our guys got punched in the face a few times," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "Eventually youre going to punch back. ... For us, we know weve got a good skating team and I think that we can frustrate." Ruff said it was "just playoff hockey." Lehtonen held up through five Anaheim power plays and had some tremendous stops to get his first career post-season victory. "It was unbelievable. Thats Kari at his best," Benn said. "He made some big saves at key times and kept us in the game and pretty much won that game for us." Game 4 is Wednesday night. And this best-of-seven series is now guaranteed Game 5 in Anaheim, where the Ducks opened the series with a pair of one-goal victories. It had been 2,162 days since the Stars last hosted a playoff game, May 19, 2008, a 4-1 loss to Detroit in the clinching Game 6 of the Western Conference finals. This one ended with chants for Lehtonen, previously 0-4 in the playoffs (two losses with Atlanta in 2007) with a 4.58 goals-against average and .858 save percentage. "I think in the first game I got scored on with the first shot and that just kind of sets the tone for the rest of the game. I was able to make a couple of good saves and it just kind of went from there," Lehtonen said. "At the age of 30, it was about time to get that first one." Late in the second period, Getzlaf and Perry were exchanging punches with different Dallas players during a stoppage. Antoine Roussel delivered a roundhouse left to Getzlaf, the Anaheim captain wearing a half-visor to protect the stitches from taking a puck to the face in Game 1. Meanwhile, Stars defenceman Alex Goligoski and Perry were going at it. Asked about the physical play, Getzlaf responded, "Youve got to stay as disciplined as you can, but you have to protect yourself, too. I never expected them to tarrget my face that much. Jurrell Casey Jersey. ." Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau was pretty direct with how he felt. "I guess you do anything to win, but its not something I think our team would do," Boudreau said. "Well take them and be as mean and physical as we need to be." Lehtonen had a kick save near the end of the first power play in the final minute of the first period. That came right before Benn came out of the penalty box and skated toward the other end. Trevor Daley, the only Stars player left from their last playoff team in 2008, passed to Shawn Horcoff, who shot. The ricochet was knocked into the net by Benn with 35 seconds left in the first period to put the Stars ahead to stay. "We look to shut them down, you know to get under their skin," Daley said. Benn had been penalized for hooking right after Daley was having words with Getzlaf. The back-and-forth with Daley and Getzlaf carried into the second period, and they had to be separated in the opening minute -- just before an eerie replay for Ducks defenceman Stephane Robidas when he broke his right leg again. Robidas had to be helped off the ice after his leg bent awkwardly when a sliding Ryan Garbutt of Dallas undercut him. The team said the latest fracture was just above the one he sustained Nov. 29 while with Dallas. He didnt play again until being traded to Anaheim last month. "Its a huge loss because he was playing great," Boudreau said. "And of course I think all the guys on the bench felt extremely bad for him. I mean, heres your teammate whos just fought his way back from a broken leg." Fans cheered for the 37-year-old Robidas, chanting "Robi, Robi!" as he left the ice before being transported to a hospital. Nichushkin scored on a one-timer through the legs of Frederik Andersen, the rookie goalie who stopped 66 of 71 shots in Anaheim. Andersen faced only 22 shots in Game 3. Garbutt added a goal in the third period. NOTES: The game came exactly six weeks after Stars forward Rich Peverley collapsed on the home bench because of an irregular heartbeat against Columbus, and later underwent corrective surgery. There was a huge cheer when he was shown during a video that was part of the pregame production. ... It was a record crowd of 19,120 at the American Airlines Center, breaking the mark set when Mike Modanos No. 9 jersey was retired last month. cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys Ray Ban Outlet Michael Kors Outlet Michael Kors Sale Cheap Michael Kors ' ' '
