1) Play the first round as currently devised.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!

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Sonny Gray has been so good over the past two months the Oakland Athletics havent needed to score runs in bunches. On Friday night, with slugger Yoenis Cespedes gone to the Boston Red Sox, they had no answer for Jeremy Guthrie. Raul Ibanez homered on Grays lone mistake, breaking his own franchise record for oldest Royals player to clear the fences and leading Kansas City past the As 1-0 on Friday night. The 42-year-old Ibanez connected in the fifth inning for his fifth homer, giving Guthrie the lone run he needed for Kansas Citys first victory at the Oakland Coliseum since April 10, 2012. The Royals went 1-5 against the As last season, including 0-3 on the road. "Theres no doubt about it, with the pitching matchups were facing in this series, this was a huge win for us," manager Ned Yost said. Gray (12-4) hung tough in a pitchers duel with Guthrie. The right-hander struck out seven in seven innings and didnt walk a batter for the first time all year. "You get spoiled because it seems like hes doing it every time out. He has done it every time out," As manager Bob Melvin said. "Hes been as consistent as a pitcher can be." Gray had his five-start winning streak snapped with his first losing decision in eight outings dating to a June 13 home loss against the Yankees. "The past is the past and you move on," Gray said. "Obviously I had a good month. That doesnt matter." Guthrie (7-9) struck out six in six innings to win his second straight outing following a three-start skid as the Royals beat the team with baseballs best record for their third straight win and eighth in 10. It could get tougher Saturday, when Jon Lester makes his As debut two days after being traded by the Red Sox. The As struggled to get anything going and lost for the third time in four games a day after trading two-time reigning Home Run Derby champion Cespedes to the Red Sox for Lester and Jonny Gomes. Guthrie struck out the side in the sixth, retiring Brandon Moss and Jed Lowrie on consecutive called third strikes. Nori Aoki douubled leading off the game and advanced on a wild pitch, but Gray retired the next three batters in order to avoid damage.dddddddddddd Grey had five or more strikeouts in each of his five July outings, going 5-0 with a 1.03 ERA for the month. ROYALS BULLPEN: Kansas Citys bullpen delivered again. The steady pitching has been key in winning a recent run of close games. Greg Holland followed scoreless innings by Kelvin Herrera and Wade Davis for his 30th save in 32 chances -- and third in as many games. "Its one of those situations where youre in a 1-0 game with a tough pitching staff over there, you know theres not going to be a lot of runs scored so you want to go on with your best guys," Yost said. TRAINERS ROOM: Royals: First baseman Eric Hosmer, who will be out three to six weeks after sustaining a stress fracture of the third finger on his right hand Thursday, is likely headed to the disabled list Saturday. Yost said more testing is likely but a hand specialist has already evaluated him. "Its a non-displaced stress fracture," Yost said. "That means it doesnt need to be casted, doesnt need surgery, just needs time to heal. Hes a pretty quick healer, but its probably going to be a 3-4 week ordeal." Athletics: Center fielder Coco Crisp received pain-relieving trigger-point injections in his strained neck over recent days. Crisp missed his fifth straight game and Melvin said he needs to take swings to test the neck before returning. FULDS RETURN: Sam Fuld started in centre field and batted leadoff one day after returning to Oakland where he began the season following a trade from Minnesota. His leadoff double in the fourth was the first hit off fellow ex-Stanford player Guthrie. ON DECK: Royals: Left-hander Jason Vargas (8-4, 3.31 ERA) makes his first start since July 8. He underwent an appendectomy the next day after he experienced discomfort. Athletics: Lester pitches on seven days rest after getting scratched Wednesday ahead of the trade deadline. Lester (10-7, 2.52 ERA) is 4-0 with a 1.07 ERA over his last eight starts.

Got a question on rule clarification, comments on rule enforcements or some memorable NHL stories? Kerry wants to answer your emails at cmonref@tsn.ca. @kfraserthecall do you think reducing carcillo suspension was right?? I sure dont agree with bettman!! - david grosnick (@dgrosni) June 3, 2014 David:As a man that wears the "stripes" yourself, I am certain you endorse the following statement contained in the Leagues press release following Commissioner Bettmans ruling on the Daniel Carcillo appeal: "The National Hockey League does not and will not, under any circumstances, tolerate or condone the abuse, physical or otherwise, of our on-ice officials. The strict and proper enforcement of Rule 40, therefore, plays a critical role in safeguarding the integrity of the game by maintaining a safe and respectful working environment for our officials." From that release I point to the phrase, "The strict and proper enforcement of Rule 40" as a foundation in rendering a fair verdict in this matter. As such, I personally agree with the Commissioners thoughtful and well laid out decision to revise the initial rule application and relative category that was determined by the game officials from 40.3 (Category ll, not less than ten games) to 40.4 (Category lll not less than three games). For the complete Commissioners opinion, please click here. I maintained a public position from the outset of this incident that a violation under the definition of rule 40.4 (Category lll) had been committed by Daniel Carcillo as he attempted to free himself from the grasp of Linesman Scott Driscoll in an emotionally charged moment. Through the testimony provided by all parties at the appeal hearing the following statement from the Commissioners opinion is most pertinent to his final determination: "Here, Messrs. Carcillo and Driscoll, as well as the NHLPA, agree that he Players application of physical force was solely for the purpose of getting free of Linesman Driscoll. That conclusion is supported by my review of the video footage and by the fact that there was no history of bad blood that would suggest that the Player bore any personal animus against the Linesman that might motivate his actions. I thus conclude that the application of physical force was "solely for the purpose of getting free" of the Official." The agreement by Driscoll in this statement, with regard to Carcillos "purpose", is an important admission of fact in the appeal process and to derail any potential ill feelings from the officiating fraternity that they are not adequately being protected by the League. This, coupled with the fact that Commissioner Bettman recognized Carcillos actions were not "accidental" and more serious than a "push or shove" to properly calibrate Carcillos suspension to six games should satisfy all parties and maintain the strict and proper enforcement of rule 40. By revising this offence to Category lll the suspension could have ranged from three to nine games. With everything taken into account, I support the Commissioners decision to reduce the initial 10-game suspension of Daniel Carcillo to a meaningful six games under the revised category.

The 76ers snapped their NBA record-tying, 26-game losing streak, routing the Detroit Pistons 123-98 on Saturday night to avoid establishing the longest skid in U.MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins have added Paul Molitor to their coaching staff, assigning him supervision of the teams base running, bunting, infield instruction and positioning as well as assistance with in-game strategy. This is not some token job for a prominent, popular former player. All of those areas need a lot of work, so Molitor is going to be busy. "Hes certainly got a history and knowledge and a high baseball IQ," general manager Terry Ryan said. "Theres no doubt about that. It fits pretty good here." The hire was announced Tuesday by the Twins, who finished 66-96 for the second straight season after going 63-99 the year before that. "Theres really no part of the game that we cant do better at," Molitor said, adding: "Im going to be able to work on guys who need to have a small-ball game, with the things they can do, with ways to score runs. I think thats kind of a lost art. Guys worry so much about getting on base, but they forget how to score and how to pick up 90 feet. While it wasnt horrible, I think it certainly could be better." Since 2005, Molitor has served as a minor league base running and infield co-ordinator for the organization. The last three of his 21 major league seasons as a player came with the Twins until his retirement in 1998. The 57-year-old grew up in nearby St. Paul, attending the same high school where Joe Mauer later starred and then playing for the University of Minnesota before his professional career was launched with Milwaukee and extended with Toronto. The seven-time All-Star is one of six players in history with at least 3,000 hits and 500 stolen bases. Molitor was a candidate to be Minnesotas manager in 2002 after Tom Kelly retired, but he withdrew during the unsettling process during which Major League Baseball tried to eliminate the franchise before being blocked in court. The job went to Ron Gardenhire, who has held it since then and received a new two-year contract last month. All of Gardenhires assistants were brought back, too, so the positiion for Molitor on staff is new.dddddddddddd "I appreciate that hes respected my input in spring training when hes had me come down there as an extra coach those first few weeks the past several years," Molitor said. "Weve talked again often. Its going to be a chance for us to take that kind of to another level in how were going to work together, as me being as part of his staff." Gardenhire neednt look over his shoulder, Ryan said. The idea to hire Molitor was Gardenhires, actually. "Gardy has no reason to worry about his job," Ryan said, adding: "I didnt want to be perceived as hiring Molitor as a manager-in-waiting. Thats not true. Were adding him to our staff to make us better." Molitor didnt dismiss eventual interest in becoming a manager. But he didnt sound ready to think about it. "Im sure therell be some questions regarding that. Theres been a lot of speculation even over the last season about Gardys potential future, and I just dont think that I can really say anything other than this is going to be invaluable for me in terms of getting back into a major league situation and continuing to gain experience and maybe learning more about what I want my future to be," Molitor said. Third baseman Trevor Plouffe tweeted after the news was announced: "Wow, so stoked to see Molitor join our staff! Hes one of the most knowledgeable baseball men Ive ever met." Ryan was glad to hear that. "Thats kind of music to my ears because Im hoping we can get Trevor going. Hes got the capability to be a pretty good player. This year wasnt what we were hoping," Ryan said. NOTES: The Twins announced that closer Glen Perkins had arthroscopic surgery on Oct. 1 on the medial meniscus cartilage in his right knee. Hell be ready for spring training. ... Molitor has served three seasons on a major league coaching staff: with the Twins as a bench coach under Kelly in 2000 and 2001 and as hitting coach for Seattle in 2004, the year he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

BALTIMORE -- Nelson Cruz might not have to carry the Baltimore Orioles offence anymore, now that Chris Davis and Adam Jones are starting to find their groove. Davis homered and had four RBIs, Jones had three hits and scored three runs and the Orioles beat Cleveland 8-4 Friday night to snap the Indians four-game winning streak. Cruz hit his 15th homer, collected his team-high 43rd RBI and upped his batting average to .286. "I think this is really the first time weve all been swinging the bat well collectively," Davis said of himself, Cruz and Jones. "Nelsons been hot all year. Jonesy is really starting to come on and obviously me coming off the (oblique) injury, Ive started to swing the bat. Its big for us, especially in the middle of the lineup." Davis hit a two-run double in the third inning and put Baltimore up 5-4 in the fifth with his seventh home run, the fourth in four games. He led the majors with 53 homers last year, and while hes not on that kind of pace, Davis appears to be heating up. "I think Im just putting together better at-bats," he said. Nick Markakis had four hits for the Orioles, who have 38 runs and 62 hits in their last five games. Bud Norris (3-4) gave up four runs, six hits and three walks in six innings to earn his first win in four starts since May 1. It wasnt his finest effort, but the run support certainly helped. "These guys can swing," Norris said. "Theyre professional hitters. Theyve been doing it for a long time." Making his second major league appearance, Clevelands T.J. House (0-1) allowed five runs and 11 hits in six innings. He was first left-hander to make his initial big league start with the Indians since David Huff on May 17, 2009. House had the misfortune of going against a Baltimore team that now has scored at least six runs in five straight games, one short of the club record. "It was fun," House said. "Obviously the results didnt end the way I wanted them to, but I had a good time out there and next time I get the chance to do it I hope to be able to perform a little better." Jason Giambi hit a three-run homer for Cleveland, the 439th of his career, breaking a tie with Andre Dawson for 41st place on the all-time HR list. Prior to connecting, the 43-year-old Giambi was 1 for 15 with no homers and no RBIs this year. The drive gave Cleveland a 4-3 lead. "Ive been taking some good at-bats," Giambi said. "I just wanted to try to put a ball in play there to get us a run. We had a runner on third, less than two outs, and just kind of keep the train moving. I just kind of got it up in the air a little bit and it went out of the ballpark." Cruz put Baltimore up 1-0 with a shot to right-centre in the second inning, and Davis doubled to right to make it 3-0 in the third. Cleveland responded with a four-run fourth. After Lonnie Chisenhall doubled in a run, Carlos Santana walked and Giambi followed with an opposite-field drive into the left-field seats. "At the time it was huge," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "It got us right back in the ballgame, put us ahead. Thats when youre starting to feel like OK, here we go, well find a way to win this one, too." But Davis followed an infield hit by Jones with a shot to right field in the fifth to put Baltimore ahead to stay. The Orioles added three unearned runs in the seventh off Mark Lowe, whose throwing error on a potential double-play ball allowed a run to score and preceded an RBI groundout by J.J. Hardy and a run-scoring double by Delmon Young. NOTES: Orioles 3B Manny Machado was given the day off after leaving in the 12th inning Thursday night with a sore right groin. Manager Buck Showalter termed the injury "the proverbial day-to-day" and said he expected Machado to avoid the 15-day disabled list. ... The Orioles recalled LHP T.J. McFarland from Triple-A Norfolk before Fridays game and optioned RHP Preston Guilmet to Norfolk. ... Cleveland SS Asdrubal Cabrera and 1B Nick Swisher did not start Friday because of knee soreness, but both are expected to avoid the DL, Francona said. Cabreras MRI Friday morning came back negative, Francona said. ... RHP Ubaldo Jimenez will start for the Orioles on Saturday against his former team. Jimenez played with the Indians before signing with Baltimore as a free agent during the off-season. Cam Newton Panthers Jersey.

It all would have been for naught, however, had it not been for some clutch shooting in the fourth quarter by Kobe Bryant and a couple of equally critical hustle plays by Derek Fisher and Pau Gasol in the final minutes. Carolina Panthers Hoodie. This is the final meeting of the season between these teams.? The Capitals were 5-4 winners in a shootout Oct.The United States Patent and Trademarks Office (USPTO) has today ordered that six Redskins trademark registrations be cancelled on the basis that they are "disparaging to Native Americans". Five Native Americans initiated the cancellation proceeding pursuant to the U.S. Trademarks Act, which "prohibits registration of marks that may disparage persons or bring them into contempt or disrepute." There has been some talk that the registrations have been cancelled, that the Redskins have lost all their trademark protection and that anyone can now go out and start selling Redskins merchandise without the permission of the team. All that is wrong. The trademark registrations have not been cancelled as of yet. The ruling was to cancel the registrations, but they remain in good standing, and will for some time. Challenging the decision will buy the Redskins time. The team will appeal the decision, and in the meantime, the trademark registrations will remain active. The Redskins can appeal the decision to the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. They may also start a court action in District Court for the District of Columbia. They may also request reconsideration of the decision with the USPTO. Expect the Redskins to take its case to District Court since that will give them the opportunity to introduce new evidence. At the Court of Appeals level, they cant submit new evidence; rather the court is stuck with the record from the original hearing. On to the big issue: does the cancellation mean that the Redskins lose their trademark rights? The ruling to cancel the trademark registrations does NOT strip the team of its trademark rights or its ability to stop unauthorized parties froom using the Redskins marks.dddddddddddd The Redskins have acquired what are called common law trademark rights. These are trademark rights that arise by virtue of the use of the mark in the marketplace. By "use", I mean things like jersey sales and the mark appearing in TV broadcasts and online. And heres the key: common law trademark rights are enforceable and the Redskins could rely on them to stop a third party from making unauthorized use of its marks. This means that the team does not need a trademark registration to stop someone from making unauthorized use of its marks. Common law rights can be relied upon to do just that. While there are important differences between registered and common law trademarks as far as scope of protection, the fame of the Redskins mark together with national sales and use place the Redskins in a good position to stop others from using their marks. So if some guy in Wisconsin starts selling product with the Redskins trademark on it without the permission of the team, he should expect to receive a cease and desist letter from the team, and failing his agreement to stop, he could face a lawsuit. Apart from trademarks, the Redskins could also sue for copyright infringement if someone makes unauthorized use of their logo or stylized word mark. The decision of the USPTO relates only to trademarks and has nothing to do with copyright. While the potential cancellation is not fatal to the ability of the Redskins to enforce their rights, this is yet another blow to the Redskins team name. The pressure on the team and league to change its name continues to mount with no end in sight. Indeed, the question may not be if the team changes its name, but when.

TORONTO - Connor McDavid made hockey look fun. Canada made it look easy.McDavid had a goal and two assists and captain Curtis Lazar scored twice as Canada blew out Denmark 8-0 Friday night at Air Canada Centre in the quarter-finals of the world junior championship. It was a show of force from the undefeated Canadians, who advance to play Slovakia in the semifinal Sunday.It was too much for us to face in Canada with their speed and physicality, Danish coach Olaf Eller said. We faced an amazing team, which, with their speed and extremely quick transition game, killed us.McDavid earned player of the game honours and deservedly so. The projected No. 1 pick dazzled in his first game at Air Canada Centre, recording one assist falling down, scoring a goal by deking the goalie out of the net and picking up another assist by turning a defenceman inside out.Lazar, his right-winger, said sometimes he gets wowed by McDavid and has to catch himself. Teammates on the bench get to enjoy more of the 17-year-olds play.Were all starstruck just like the fans, winger Anthony Duclair said. Hes a great player and hes got unbelievable skill.McDavid now has two goals and seven assists through five games at the world juniors.Hes been our best player the whole tournament, winger Max Domi said. Sometimes the puck goes in for him, sometimes it doesnt. Tonight it went in.It went in a lot for Canada. In addition to McDavid and Lazar, Canada got goals from Sam Reinhart, Lawson Crouse, Nick Paul, Brayden Point and Nick Ritchie.Depth of scoring was again evident, just as it was in the tournament-opening blowout of Slovakia.Its huge, said Lazar. To get contributions from guys: Ritchie, Crouse, Paul, etc., thats big for us especially were getting down to playing for keeps. ... We need to get all guys going and firing on all cylinders.Canada was firing on all cylinders Friday night from the first shift, when the top line of Domi, Reinhart and Duclair hemmed Denmark in its own end. That was a preview of things to come.By the time the night was over, Canada outshot Denmark 50-14. The result would have been even more lopsided had Danish goaltender Georg Sorensen not made a handful of memorable stops.But the plays the 18,448 fans in attendance and those watching on television will remember mostly belong to McDavid.On Lazars goal to open the scoring, McDavid drove to the net and around it and kept his head up as he was falling to the ice. Mid-slide, McDavid found Lazar in front, and the 19-year-old Ottawa Senators forward beat Sorensen short side.Its good that he was there I guess, McDavid said.On his goal, McDavid picked off the puck in the neutral zone and turned on the speed before stopping at the edge of the crease. He deked enough to get Sorensen out of position and could slide it into the net for his second of the tournament.He took like two strides and he just took off and just beat everyone to the net, Domi said. I dont know how he did it. Their goalies a great goalie, but he was in the corner. I think any goalie wouldve been on the corner off that cutback.McDavid offered up one more highlight-reel play in the third period when he poked the puck past Denmarks Victor Eskerod. That started a tic-tac-toe passing play to Lazar and Point Canadas seventh goal of the night.Coach Benoit Groulx was proud of his team for not displaying any selfish play during the rout, which did have a major negative. Forward Robby Fabbri suffered a high-ankle sprain early in the first period and is out for the rest of the tournament.IIHF rules prevent Canada from replacing Fabbri on the roster, so 12 healthy forwards remain for Sundays semifinal against Slovakia. Russia plays Sweden in the other game.Canada beat Slovakia 8-0 on Boxing Day in Montreal. Players see the Slovaks as stronger now than they were then.Its not going to be as easy as that last time, for sure, Lazar said.Its unclear whether Groulx will go back to Zach Fucale in goal against Slovakia. Fucale was barely tested in a 14-save shutout.Notes - Several players from Canadas gold-medal-winning 1993 and 1994 world junior teams were honoured during the first intermission. Captain Martin Lapointe, Anson Carter and Pittsburgh Penguins assistant GM Jason Botterill were among those in attendance. ... Denmark is coached by Olaf Eller, father of Montreal Canadiens centre Lars Eller.___Follow @SWhyno on Twitter.

Week 2s biggest games include Florida facing Miami and Notre Dame travelling to the Big House to conclude their rivalry against Michigan in primetime on TSN2 and TSN 1050. VANCOUVER -- Daniel Sedin ended his longest pointless skid in a decade with a bang Friday night. He scored a goal and assisted on two by his twin brother Henrik as the Vancouver Canucks thumped the Columbus Blue Jackets 6-2. Daniel Sedins points were his first in seven games and helped the Canucks get their offence going after they suffered from a goal drought during a five-game losing skid. He had not had a similar six-game pointless streak since 2002-03. "Six games feels like forever," said Daniel Sedin. "its about the process, but in the end its about scoring." The Canucks (12-8-4)are fifth in the Pacific Division, while the Blue Jackets (8-12-3) lost for the fifth time in seven outings, good for seventh in the Metropolitan. Vancouvers goal total Friday matched its output during the losing skid. "It does a lot for the confidence for a lot of guys and for the team knowing we can score," said Daniel Sedin. Alex Edler, Zack Kassian, and Jeremy Welsh, with his first career NHL goal, also scored for the Canucks. Matt Calvert -- on the Blue Jackets first shot of the game -- and Artem Anisimov replied for the Blue Jackets. Columbus saw its fortunes change quickly after Daniel Sedin scored with 16 seconds left in the first period. "They scored first. We were pretty upbeat, but the tying goal was key," said Daniel Sedin. "Coming in here (to the dressing room) with a tie instead of being down was huge, especially where we were as a team. From that moment on, I thought we played really well." Kassian, Henrik Sedin and Edler iced the victory in the second by scoring two minutes and 10 seconds apart. Henrik Sedin and Edler scored just 16 seconds apart. "It happened fast," said Columbus coach Todd Richards. "They do a really good job of forcing you and pressuring you, and I think the first period kind of carried over into the second and then they were able to finish, and a couple of quick goals against a good team like that is tough to recover from." During their losing skid, the Canucks were held to one goal in four games and only managed two in the other. "We didnt play a terrible game, but we lost the game in a couple minutes there in the second period," said Columbbus defenceman Jack Johnson.dddddddddddd In a bid to get more scoring, Canucks coach John Tortorella split up the Sedins at times, and played them together at others. The moves worked as Vancouver outshot Columbus by a wide margin in the first 19 minutes and were finally rewarded with Daniels goal in the closing seconds of the first period. "Its a relief to get a win and to get rewarded with the forechecking that I thought was pretty good tonight," said Tortorella. The Canucks responded well after an embarrassing 3-2 loss to the lowly Florida Panthers three nights earlier. But Tortorella and Henrik Sedin contended that the only difference from recent outings was the fact the puck went in more often. "I dont think we played a whole lot better tonight than we have in the past three games, apart from the Florida game maybe," said Henrik Sedin. "But in the end, we got the goals people are standing and talking about a nice win instead of losing 2-1. Thats a huge difference for us." Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo only had to make 14 saves as Vancouver outshot Columbus 35-16. "I dont know what to tell you guys," Luongo said about letting in the first shot. "I knew it was going to be that type of game, they are not a team that throws a lot of pucks a the net. Unfortunately they scored right away, so thats even tougher to stay in the game and battle. But we did a good job, We got some goals and it was easier to relax after that." Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky recorded 29 saves in a losing cause, while the Canucks were blanked on five power plays and Columbus was denied on four man-advantage opportunities that generated few chances. "Its nice to win a game where you dont have to go down to the wire and grind one out," said Luongo. Notes: Bobrovsky stopped Jannik Hansen on a penalty shot in the third period after Fedor Tyutin pulled him down on a breakaway. a Both teams entered the game with no players on a scoring streak. a Unproductive Canucks winger David Booth was scratched for the second straight game. a Columbus centre Brandon Dubinsky was sent home due to a foot injury and missed his second consecutive game. Second-leading scorer James Wisniewski sat out with the flu. Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '

A day after the Los Angeles Lakers confirmed Kobe Bryant would not return from a knee injury this season, coach Mike Dantoni has confirmed Steve Nash will also remain out for the duration of the year. "Hes not going to play," DAntoni told reporters, according to the Los Angeles Times. "It doesnt make any sense for him to come back for 15 games, whatever." Nash, 40, who is suffering from a nerve-root irritation in his left leg, has appeared in just 10 games this season and never played more than 30 minutes in any of those contests. Speaking to the Bruce Arthur of TSNs The Reporters and the National Post, Nash said reaggravating his existing condition has thrown his entire career into question and perspective. "It just threw everything off, just enough," he said. "Its almost like it threw everything off just enough to let age be a factor. You know? I was kind of holding back age, and one little thing sets it off. In two seasons in Los Angeles, Nash has appeared in 60 games.

DENVER -- Aramis Ramirez had three hits, including a solo homer, and Wily Peralta won his fourth straight start as the Milwaukee Brewers beat the error-prone Colorado Rockies 9-4 on Saturday. Carlos Gomez extended his hitting streak to 17 games to help the Brewers improve to 5-1 on their seven-game trip. Peralta (8-5) went 7 2-3 solid innings and allowed four runs, three earned. He gave up a two-run single to Justin Morneau in the first and then shut down the leagues best offence until Corey Dickersons two-run homer in the sixth. Christian Friedrich (0-1) lasted six innings and surrendered nine runs, four earned, in his season debut. He was betrayed by his defence as the Rockies committed a season-high four errors. Friedrich is the 11th starting pitcher the Rockies have used this season.

The ball sailed over Friedrichs head, allowing Ramirez to score from third and Reynolds from second as the ball rolled toward the Brewers dugout.

BOSTON -- Add another one to a list of key injuries for the New York Yankees. Yankees manager Joe Girardi expects leadoff hitter Brett Gardner will be out for a lengthy stretch and possibly the rest of the regular season. Girardi made the announcement before New York opened a three-game series with the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park on Friday night. Gardner left Thursday nights win in Baltimore with the injury, which Girardi said is a "Grade 1 strain in his rib cage." Hes batting .273 with eight homers and 52 RBIs and a big part of New Yorks injury-ravaged offence. "Hes going to be out a while," Girardi said. "Rib cages dont heal real quick. Its not like its just a few days. Is it possible it could be the rest of the year? Yeah." Its the latest in a season filled with injuries for the Yankees, who entered Friday one game back in the ALs wild card chase. "Im almost at the point where I dont think it surprises our guys anymore," Girardi said. "I dont want to diminish how important guys are to us, but weve kind of gotten used to it. A guy comes back, a guy goes down. Thats kind of how its been all year long." Mark Teixeira was on the DL early in the year before being lost for the season with right wrist surgery. Derek Jeter, who missed most of the season recovering from left ankle surgery, was lost this week for the remainder of the season with soreness in the repaired ankle. Outfielder Curtis Granderson, infielder Eduardo Nunez, third baseman Alex Rodriguez and outfielder Jayson Nix are among a number that have missed significant time with injuries. "Its a big loss," said Girardi of Gardner. "You know weve had to overcome a lot through the course of this year. People are going to have to step up during his absence. Hes been really good for us. Hes been really good offensively, defensively and getting us off to good starts." But the Yankees still remain in the hunt. "Its a club that doesnt feel sorry for themselves," Girardi said. "They understand injuries are part of the game and you have to overcome them." Girardi said he hopes to use Gardner as a pinch-runner, but said it wont happen at least until the end of the next series in Toronto. Frank Gore Youth Jersey.

Subbans power-play goal 4:08 into overtime sent the Montreal Canadiens into the All-Star break with a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday.San Diego, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - Cody Kessler had three touchdown passes and Javorius Allen ran for two scores as 24th-ranked Southern California held off No. 25 Nebraska, 45-42, in a wild Holiday Bowl. Kessler finished 23-of-39 for 321 yards with an interception. Allen carried the ball 26 times for 152 yards for the Trojans (9-4), who won their sixth bowl game in the last seven tries. Adoree Jackson scored on a 98-yard kickoff return and caught a 71-yard TD pass. The Cornhuskers (9-4), guided by interim coach Barney Cotton, nearly rallied from an 18-point, second-half deficit in a game the teams combined for 1,040 yards. Instead of attempting the tying field goal, Nebraska ran the ball on 4th-and-3 from the USC 31 with 2:35 left. DeMornay Pierson-El rushed to the left, but Leon McQuay III came from across the field to make the tackle for a 1- yard gain. Nebraska was down to one timeout, which allowed USC to run out most of the remaining time. The Cornhuskers got the ball at their 32 following a punt and a 15-yard USC penalty with 17 seconds left. Kenny Bell was able to get out of bounds at the Nebraska 44 with one second left. USC players had already flooded the field before a video review showed Bell fell out of bounds. Tommy Armstrong Jr.s final pass went short of the end zone and was knocked out of bounds by USC receiver Nelson Agholor. Armstrong completed 32-of-51 for 381 yards with three TDs and an interception. Ameer Abdullah rushed 27 times for 88 yards and a score, while Pierson-El had eight receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown. Cotton, who has been on the staff as an associate head coach for the past seven seasons, replaced the fired Bo Pelini. The Cornhuskers let Pelini go on Nov. 30 despite winning at least nine games in each of his seven seasons at the school. Mike Riley, who spent 14 seasons at Oregon State, was named the new Cornhuskers coach earlier this month. Poor pass coverage led to Jordan Westerkamps 65-yard TD reception with 24 seconds left in the third quarter that brought Nebraska within 45-34. Nebraska came up just short on a 4th down pass from Armstrong to Bell with 11:39 left, but the Cornhuskers got the ball back after a punt and their sophomore QB made a sparkling play to get his team closer. Armstrong hit Abdullah for 33 yards, and later on 4th-and-2 from the USC 15, faked a pitch during an option run and rumbled 15 yards to the end zone. Armstrongs pass to Bell for the 2-point conversion had Nebraska within 45-52 with 6:52 remaining. USC went 3-and-out on its next possession, but instead of going for the tie, McQuay made the big stop. Drew Brown kicked a 34-yard field gooal to get the scoring started, but Jackson returned the ensuing kickoff 98 yards.dddddddddddd Jackson found a seam up the middle and cut to the right, and made a celebratory flip just as he reached the end zone with 4:06 elapsed. Nebraska went back in front less than three minutes later. The Cornhuskers were flagged for an ineligible man downfield on what looked like a lateral that wound up going for a touchdown. Offensive lineman Alex Lewis was alone on the left side and appeared to be behind the line of scrimmage when he caught the ball and rumbled to the end zone on a third-down play. After a false start pushed the ball back to the 13, Bell made a diving catch on the right side of the end zone to give Nebraska a 10-7 edge. Andre Heidari split the uprights from 42 yards away to tie the game, but Nebraska soared ahead again with 1:25 left in the opening quarter on Armstrongs 9-yard TD connection to Pierson-El. The Trojans had eight penalties in the first quarter, but they managed to go ahead 24-17 with 6:39 left in the half on Allens 2-yard TD run. Before that, Agholor caught a 17-yard TD pass. Armstrong then moved his team deep into USC territory, but his pass across the field was picked off by a diving Sua Cravens at the 12. Replays appeared to show the ball hit the ground as Cravens was making the grab, although the call was confirmed after a video replay. USC widened the gap to two TDs when Jackson caught a short pass on the right side of the field, then outraced defenders for a 71-yard scoring play three minutes into the third quarter. Abdullah cut the deficit to 31-24 just over two minutes later on a 20-yard TD run to the right, but a 44-yard run up the middle by Allen with 8:06 left in the third restored the two-score margin. USCs Kris Albarado had a punt blocked later in the third quarter, but the Cornhuskers only turned it into three points. Nebraska faced a fourth down at the 2 and decided to go for a TD, but the snap from center went off Armstrongs facemask and Abdullah was tackled in the backfield. The Cornhuskers got a reprieve thanks to a false start penalty, which led to Browns 24-yard field goal. The Trojans needed just two plays to expand their lead to 45-27. Kessler hit freshman JuJu Smith with a 45-yard bomb, and Bryce Dixon was left alone over the middle for a 20-yard scoring reception with 2:03 remaining. Game Notes Agholor had seven catches for 90 yards ... Armstrong had 41 yards on 12 caries ... Bell caught seven balls for 71 yards ... USC holds a 4-0-1 edge in its series with Nebraska ... The Cornhuskers had 525 yards of offense. Wholesale Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Authentic Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys ' ' '

Curley Culp Jersey. I kind of got a taste of being able to pick a suit with the draft lottery, I went with the bow tie. Kendall Wright Jersey. They showered him with "MVP! MVP!" chants. In many ways, it seemed like hed never been gone.I am happy the bye weeks are over. Two games is 50 per cent less preparation time for me but two games compared to four is just not the same. As a former player, the bye week always came at the right time but as a fan and public conduit, the flow is not the same. The meaning of who wins and how they do it does not relate in the standing as directly. Four games a week for the rest of the season is great. At this point of the season - heading into Week 8 - the best team playing their best game are the Toronto Argonauts. Three dominate wins over Winnipeg, BC, and last week a 38-13 win in Montreal, makes the Argonauts the team to beat in the East. Yes, when you evaluate that Montreal game, the Alouettes did beat themselves as much as Toronto beat them - five fumbles, one interception and a turnover on downs is a disaster - but Toronto took those moments and produced points. The Alouettes are in trouble! A statement of the obvious, I realize, but as I look to the future I see next week in Saskatchewan coming off a loss, than BC - who is going to improve - followed by the Argos again back-to-back. The reason for the Als regression and the reality of 2-4 in the standings do begin with the calculated mistake of the head coaching change to begin the season. But the Argos game showed a lack of emotion and passion that has to be a concern as well. Seven turnovers do depress a collective teams ability to regroup but this is pro football not college and pro football players have to have the ability to concentrate on the present moment and nothing else. I have never seen Montreal lose its "fight" the way that team did and it has to be a concern. The other team, Toronto, showed a killer attitude that all coaches love to be a part of. Avoiding mistakes is so important in football - as important as making great plays. Of equal value is taking advantage of opponents mistakes. Toronto crushed Montreal in the first quarter and the Als never recovered. Switching topics completely, Argos defensive coordinator Chris Jones is the next head coach candidate to be considered.dddddddddddd Dave Dickenson and Jacques Chapdelaine in BC are two others, but Jones has the ability to see CFL talent and then see them make it happen on the field. Cornerback Alonzo Lawrence played his first game and looked like he can play many more. Whats amazing to me is that out of the starting 12 on defense for the winning Grey Cup team, only three remain - Patrick Watkins, Robert McCune and Marcus Ball. Yet, you get the feel that this defense is going to be as good as last years defense soon. Argos safety Matt Black is also improving game-by-game. The second game of Week 7 lived up to the hype. Well, if youre a Stampeders fan, that is. The season is a grind, that is a given, but the secret to making the grind productive is to look at the practices professionally and take the games personally. Calgarys win over the Riders happened because it became personal. John Cornish was tired of hearing how great Kory Sheets is. The front five of the Stampeders was tired of hearing about how good the front five of Saskatchewan is. Both had something to prove more than winning the game. Players know about other players - who are playing well and who arent playing so well, and every aspect in between. Players want to be all-stars, gain individual recognition for a job well done and everything that goes with it. It is natural and normal in the "human" world of competition. I thought Fridays win by the Stamps was great because Calgary took it personally while Saskatchewan took it professionally. Next time these two teams play again is Saturday, October 26th, Saskatchewan at Calgary, and could be for first place in the West. Ok good; the bye weeks are over. Winnipeg will regroup with all the management changes, both Hamilton and Edmonton are improving, Montreal has major challenges, Saskatchewan will bounce back, and Toronto and BC are on a major roll. Now, staying healthy is as important as anything else with 12 straight weeks and four games a week. Let the grind begin at practice but always make the games personal.

INAWASHIRO, Japan -- Canadian moguls skier Mikael Kingsbury says he always sets his sights on a podium finish. And lately, hes been getting a lot of them. After winning bronze at a World Cup event on Saturday, the reigning Olympic silver medallist capped off his weekend in Japan with gold in dual moguls on Sunday. "Yesterday I wasnt disappointed, but I made an uncharacteristic mistake. Today I felt very good," Kingsbury said. "I really wanted to win and I focused on the stuff I was doing well. I didnt have my best training this morning so I had to refocus and managed to get the win." Kingsbury, of Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, Que., outperformed Japans Sho Endo in his final run. Montreals Pascal-Olivier Gagne took bronze for his first World Cup podium finish. The 24-year-old Gagne, who was ousted by Kingsbury in the semifinal, said that simply cracking the semis was a huge step for him, but winning bronze and sharing his first podium with Kingsbury and Sho was even better. "I was already assured of fourth place so it didnt even matter what happened after, I was just so happy to be there," he said. "I went to see Mik before the dual and took him in my arms because I knew it was my best result ever. "To share the podium with him, hes the most consistent skier Ive seen and Sho, hes one of the best right now, so to share the podium with both these guys really means a lot to me." Gagne got off to a slow start this season, making only one final in his first six events. While his Canadian teammates were winning medals in Sochi, Gagne had to go back to the NorAm circuit to earn a spot in this weekends World Cup event in Japan. He placed seventh in singles and second in dual moguls at Apex Mountain Resort outside of Penticton, B.C. on Feb. 15 and 16, respectively. Gagne says winning his first World Cup medal on the tough Japanese course made his victory even sweeter. "To finally have my first podium ever, and to have it here in Inawashiro means a lot to me," he said. "Its one of the courses thats the most difficult in the world. Its the course I always looked up to when I was young watching my idols. Its really a fight every time to ski here so Im really happy I made my first podium here." Quebec Citys Philippe Marquis was fourth, Montreals Marc-Antoine Gagnon placed fifth after being knocked out in the quarter-finals by Kingsbury, and two-time Olympic gold medallist Alex Bilodeau of Rosemere, Que., was ninth. In dual moguls, two skiers race down a course against each other, with the top score awarded to the athlete who performs the best tricks in the quickest time. Kingsbury admitted that having to ski against a fellow Canadian isnt exactly ideal. "For sure I dont want to face them in duals because its not fun to have to go up against your teammate," he said. "But when were in the gate, its like theyre from another country. Im not going to ski differently because theyre my friend. We push even harder almost when we are going against our own teammates, but we had a lot of fun today." On the womens side, Hannah Kearney of the United States won gold, followed by Elena Muratova of Russia and Japans Junko Hoshino. Montreals Maxime Dufour-Lapointe, who won bronze in the womens singles event Saturday, placed fifth. Her sister and reigning Olympic gold medallist Justine Dufour-Lapointe, finished ninth after taking first place on Saturday. Paxton Lynch Jersey.

The right-hander struggled after winning the honour in 2008 and 2009, but a retooling of his game has begun to pay off and has the San Francisco Giants thinking about the Lincecum of old.ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright says his elbow injury is not serious. He could miss a start to allow the tendinitis to calm down. "Im OK, I really am," Wainwright said Friday. "I know that in this business when the word elbow gets thrown around people think the worst, but in actuality and in all honest to goodness truth, the only reason we did an MRI at all was to see how to treat it better, to see exactly which spot was dinged up." General manager John Mozeliak said the team would have a better idea of its next move after Wainwright plays catch on Saturday. The right-hander was a 19-game winner last year and won 20 games in 2010. "I think the best way to think about this now is its a long season and certainly you dont want to put the season in jeopardy for one start," Mozeliak said. "I certainly know where were leaning, but Id like to see how he responds tomorrow." Wainwright is tied for the National League lead in wins at 9-3 with a 2.15 ERRA.dddddddddddd He had an injection on Wednesday after an MRI exam pinpointed the trouble area in the back of his elbow. "If I have to miss a start once every three years without going on the DL, I think thats an OK thing," Wainwright said. "I could pitch through this, theres no doubt, without seeing doctors, without getting a shot. Thats not the smart play, lets get this treated, lets get this knocked out." Wainwright, who missed the 2011 season after undergoing elbow reconstruction surgery, said the sole reason for the MRI was to aid in rehab efforts. Wainwright sought to calm fans, saying the elbow was fine and the tendon was "thick as an oak tree and strong as can be." Both the team and pitcher kept open the possibility Wainwright could stay on his turn and pitch Monday against the Mets, but all agreed a little rest would be beneficial. Wainwright was second in the NL with 100 1-3 innings. He said the elbow began bothering him the last two starts.

Ashton scored a hat trick -- giving him 13 goals in 16 AHL games this season -- to power the Toronto Marlies to a 5-2 victory over the visiting Lake Erie Monsters in AHL action on Sunday.We dont like penalty shootouts to end matches. Thats what they tell us. Play on until they score. Argentina and Netherlands may still be playing until Sundays final if that were the case. It was a drab affair, arguably the worst game of the World Cup. With so much on the line, no team came close to proving why they deserved to win it. Fittingly, the record books will show it as a draw: A stalemate in every sense of the word. It was a chess match where both players didnt make moves for long stretches. Just when it looked like either of them could capture their queen, along came two of the best pawns on the board. It was Javier Mascherano vs. Ron Vlaar. Both players were magnificent for their team but their standout performances said a lot about the oppositions weaknesses. Argentina have been waiting for a player to step up to a level that Lionel Messi has been at during this World Cup, but on a night when their current captain didnt get close to that level, their former skipper stepped up with an absolutely immense performance. Mascherano sat deep, allowed the defenders to play deep as well and flat out refused the Dutch any space in front of them. It forced their opponents to play long balls to try and get Arjen Robben and Robin van Persie into the match. In possession, Mascherano was also excellent with distribution helping his side attack down the right and target Bruno Martins Indi. Louis van Gaal reacted quickly at half-time by removing the Feyenoord man. That Argentina forced them into a move so quickly played a big part in how the game was played. When Nigel De Jong, back after a thigh injury, had to come off in the second half, suddenly van Gaal only had one move left. A move he decided to use by removing the ineffective van Persie in extra time. No one could argue that the Dutch team needed Klaas Jan Huntelaar but for a game that looked so destined for penalties, the removal of the Manchester United striker could be questioned. What definitely needs to be questioned is the order of the penalty takers for the Dutch. It was clear that van Gaal wanted to keep as many of his players in the same spot as they were used in the shootout victory over Costa Rica. That day the Dutch went four-for-four in order: van Persie, Robben, Sneijder, Kuyt. Huntelaar was the fifth taker but wasnt used. Against Argentina, van Gaal looked at his team and knew the only one he had to replace was van Persie at number one. Every credit to Ron Vlaar, the Aston Villa player, to step up and replace van Persie in the shootout but making him the first shooter was the wrong decision. In 24 previous World Cups the team that missed first lost 20 times. You cannot ask a player to take tthe first penalty in a key shootout when he wasnt even in your choice to be in the top five in the last shootout.dddddddddddd. Vlaar had had a wonderful match. Argentina tried to force things wide but ultimately they were drawn back centrally and Vlaar, in the middle of the back three, won every tackle and aerial duel he went for. After 120 minutes, though, his job was not done. Showing nerves, he stepped up quickly, from the prompt of the whistle, and it wasnt a good penalty. The moment Vlaars effort was saved by Sergio Romero the momentum changed. Lionel Messi was the right choice for Argentina to take the first penalty and, to no ones surprise, he scored. Messi had struggled throughout the game, which was the first World Cup game he has played when he didnt get a touch in the opponents penalty area. It was clear the Dutch had done their homework and their mandate was to shut down Messi. He will receive his fair share of criticism based on this performance but, once again, this match was another shining example of how much he needs his teammates to take him to glory. The Barcelona man has carried Argentina to this stage, it is only fitting that some - in this case Romero, Mascherano and the rest of the shooters - helped carry him to the final. They are, however, a team that arrives in the final with flaws. This is nothing new. Many teams have reached the World Cup Final when not playing very well but few have won it. Argentina showed a lot of grit and fight in this semifinal, just like they did in the 120 minutes against Switzerland and the narrow 1-0 defeat over Belgium. However, despite their fight they do look very ordinary. They arrive in the final after scoring just two goals in three knockout matches. The only team in World Cup history to do that was Argentina in 1990 and that was a terribly average side who frustrated Germany for over 80 minutes in arguably one of the worst games in football history. No one will be hoping for a repeat on Sunday but I am sure it will cross Argentinas mind that they will be naive to think they can play an open, expansive game against Germany. The Dutch end their quest to be world champions with their heads held high. They went further than most imagined and many of their young players, players produced by their own clubs in their own league, will grow and get better for this experience. Many will also find new clubs, too. However, they will also reflect on just how close they were - once again - to getting over a significant hurdle on penalties. Van Gaal departs for Manchester United after a very good World Cup but ultimately his decision on the order of the takers had a massive impact on this result.

The veteran driver won the pole position for Saturday nights Sprint Cup Series event at Bristol Motor Speedway on Friday night. Its his series-high fifth top starting spot of the season, and just the 11th in 490 starts in his career. The secret? "Faster cars," Harvick said with a wide grin. "Thats it." Harvick, in his first season with Stewart-Haas Racing, set a track record with a lap at 131.362 mph that knocked Jeff Gordon from the top spot. Gordon, the series points leader, will start second at 131.290. "Any time you beat the 24 right now, things are going ok," Harvick said. Gordon was equally pleased. "I thought I had a really good laps that first run out," he said. "I came on the radio and I said, That is all I got. When you go do that and the car is well balanced and you get a good lap, you know that its up to somebody else to just take a little more risk and maaybe get it, and Kevin did that.dddddddddddd" Carl Edwards, who won here in the spring, will start third, with Kyle Busch fourth. Busch has won five times in his career on the 0.533-mile oval, but said hes concerned the lone groove around the top of the track could be problematic. "I think the race is going to be frustrating - not a lot of passing," he said. "I think a lot of guys are going to be up around the top. Everybody is going to be up around the top." Joey Logano and Jimmie Johnson are in the third row, with Kurt Busch and Greg Biffle in the fourth. Biffle is the only one of the top eight qualifiers who has not sealed a spot in the championship. He will start the race 16th in points, but with three drivers trailing him by 24 points or fewer as they try to climb into the top 16. "Well keep working on it," he said. "Bristol is hard to judge, but our car is driving good and I can run pretty consistent laps, so I feel like weve got a solid top 10 car."
