Xherdan Shaqiri is fit to return for Stoke against Bournemouth this weekend. A hamstring injury sidelined the Switzerland midfielder for Citys trip to West Ham before the international break, but he will be available along with Marko Arnautovic, who has served a ban.Mark Hughes does have injury concerns ahead of Saturday, though, with Geoff Cameron still sidelined and Glenn Whelan struggling with a hamstring problem during the Republic of Irelands win in Austria. As always with Glenn hes always going to give himself the best opportunity to play, Hughes told the club website. Six months half price Upgrade to Sky Sports to watch Man Utd v Arsenal on Saturday and get the first six months half price Its a concern because he hasnt really got much time to recover you would have thought - and with anybody else youd say they were definitely out. Hopefully as its him hell be okay but as it stands at present, hes a doubt. Glenn doesnt come off unless hes got a real issue and cant perform at the level he knows hes capable of. He did the right thing by coming off early and hopefully that will allow him to play at the weekend. West Ham 1-1 Stoke Shaq is fine but Geoff, unfortunately, wont be available as he has had a little bit of an issue with the knee that needed calming down. Were doing what we usually do with those type of injuries and trying to get him up to speed but weve been told that he just needs to rest a little longer.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Dwyane Wade missed the Heats previous seven games. The Knicks would have liked him to miss at least one more.Wade returned from a hamstring injury to score 27 points - 13 in the fourth quarter -and Miami beat New York 86-79 on Sunday night.For me, the fourth quarter is the only one where I can be selfish, Wade said.Chris Bosh added 20 for the Heat, including a crucial 3-pointer with 1:07 left as Miami held off a late New York rally.Carmelo Anthony also returned after a two-game absence because of back spasms to score 31 points for the Knicks.If I can go, I can go, Anthony said. That was my mindset. If I feel like I can play, I am going to give it a shot.Amare Stoudemire had 19 points and 12 rebounds for New York.At this point I think we just got to look ourselves in the mirror and see if were putting forth the effort that we need to win, Stoudemire said. We got to take it upon ourselves to see if were getting ourselves prepared for the game or having the right mentality to play a game at a high level.After trailing by as many as 16, the Knicks pulled to 65-63 on Tim Hardaway Jr.s layup with 9:22 left.Wade followed with a baseline jumper and scored 12 of Miamis next 15 points to help the Heat maintain the lead.I played 32 minutes, but it felt a lot more like 50, said Wade, who added five assists. It took a while. Early on I was just trying to make plays for my teammates.After the Knicks again pulled to 79-77 on Stoudemires tip-in with 1:23 left, Bosh hit his 3-pointer and New York never got closer.When the situation gets a little tense, a little tight, we need a shot and we run plays that we normally get good looks off of and it was just about having your feet set and shooting with confidence, Bosh said.The Heat opened a 10-2 lead and never relinquished the advantage.Miami took its biggest lead, 37-21, on Boshs layup with 4:48 remaining in the first half. The Heat had led 21-17 after the first quarter before beginning the second on a 16-4 run.Luol Deng had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Heat. Bosh added nine rebounds.Samuel Dalembert and Jose Calderon each had 10 rebounds for the Knicks.TIP-INSHeat: Miami has beaten the Knicks four straight. ... Bosh (4th) and Wade (5th) were selected directly behind Anthony (3rd) in the 2003 draft. ... The Heat were 3-4 during Wades seven-game absence.Knicks: New York last beat Miami on Jan. 9, 2014. Anthony had 29 points, eight rebounds, five assists and two steals in that 102-92 victory. ... New York has lost four straight, six of its last seven and 13 of its last 15. ... The Knicks 34 halftime points were one more than the season-low 33 they scored in their previous game against Oklahoma City on Friday night.MIAMI MAINTAINSThe Heat scored the first four points of the game and held at least a two-point lead for the entire 48 minutes.UP NEXTHeat: At Washington on Monday night.Knicks: Hosts Brooklyn at Tuesday night.

Curtis Samuel Womens Jersey. The 6-foot-10 centre who won an NBA title with the Miami Heat was voted to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame on Monday, adding that honour to becoming a board member at his alma mater.Lewis Hamilton says a fourth title seemed impossible after his crash with Nico Rosberg at the Spanish GP - and has vowed to keep the fallout from the incident a secret. Hamilton was 43 points behind his Mercedes team-mate when the duo collided on the first lap in Barcelona and in a UBS Q&A session, which was streamed live on Facebook, the world champion has opened up on the mental affects it had on him.He has now recovered to within one point of Rosberg at the halfway stage of the season after winning back-to-back grands prix, and admits he has changed immensely through his nine years in Formula 1. When I was younger, if I had a bad race I was so hard on myself, he said. It was really negative. I remember some races I wouldnt leave my hotel room for three or four days, wouldnt speak to anyone, not being on my phone, I was just trying to get myself out of this dark place that Id be in. Somehow Id pop out of it and turn it into positive. I think thats what youve got to try and do. Youve got to look at the situation, even if its really negative, youve got to try and find the positives from it and leave the negatives behind. Try and learn from it. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg were involved in a dramatic crash on the first lap of the Spanish Grand Prix which has seen both men retire from the race I look at Barcelona for example this year. It was a massive low for me. Theres things you wont know until I retire that I tell you that I experienced. I got up the next day and I went for a run, thats my process, through my run Im thinking about lots of different things.Its crazy to think that the 43-point deficit I had at the time, which seemed impossible - Im only human so those days I feel like it seemed impossible - youve just got to keep going, as painful as it can be, as hard as it can be.Is Hamilton playing mind games?You might get over it quickly, it might take longer but you just have to keep going. Its not how you fall, its how you get up from those experiences that you can become stronger. I feel Im stronger right now than I was at the beginning. I dont do everything perfect, I make mistakes. Theres days when I thought, the worlds coming to an end, Im never going to win this championship blah blah blah, I have those same things we all have. Somehow I try to find the positives in it. Look wheere I am now, Im one point behind in the championship.dddddddddddd Im even surprised. Im like, if I had given up at one point... it just shows you to never ever ever give up no matter what. Hamilton is third on the list of total wins, and total poles in Formula 1, while he can become the first Brit to claim more than three championships this year.But the 31-year-old says he is not motivated by any records and, despite the possibility of Ferrari making a move, he expects to see out another five years in the sport with Mercedes, with his current deal lasting until 2018.There isnt a final goal, he said. People have been asking me, do you want to go for Michael [Schumacher]s record?, for example. Honestly, I have zero desire in my heart to go for that. But if I happened to be fortunate enough get anywhere near there that would be amazing.I try and think to myself whats your five year plan? and try to set out to do it. Ive obviously signed for another three years with Mercedes - after that I see myself staying for another three or four years. While Im 37 Ill still be relatively young so I want to be challenged by something else. Marc Priestly thinks Lewis Hamiltons comments in the media may be affecting Nico Rosbergs performance on the track I want to be as great as I can be but I dont believe being as great as I can be is defined by someone elses record. Even if Im only here for another two years Im going to give it everything Ive got. Even if I was to stop now Id think Ive learned a lot, Ive had an amazing journey.Theres not one moment or one thing I would change because thats what got me where I am today regardless of whether you hit someones records.Watch the Hungarian GP live on Sky Sports F1.

A Kansas City, Missouri, station responded with plans to play the Grammy-winning track every hour from 7 a. SAN ANTONIO -- "Beat the Heat!" had a whole new meaning in a sweltering start to the NBA Finals. The San Antonio Spurs handled the conditions, and the team, and it sure helped when a suffering LeBron James couldnt make it to the finish. Tim Duncan had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the Spurs beat the Heat 110-95 on Thursday night in Game 1 at steamy AT&T Center. With an air conditioning failure making it feel like a sauna and causing James to battle cramps that knocked him out of the decisive stretch, the Spurs pulled away to win the opener of the first finals rematch since 1998. "After I came out of the game, they kind of took off," James said. "And it was frustrating sitting out and not be able to help our team." Manu Ginobili had 16 points and 11 assists, Tony Parker added 19 points and eight assists and the Spurs -- 6 for 6 in NBA Finals Game 1s -- shot 59 per cent. "Just very proud of my team," Parker said. "We kept believing, kept pushing. We know its not easy." They host Game 2 on Sunday -- likely in cooler conditions. James finished with 25 points but played only 33 minutes, and Miami was outscored 36-17 in the fourth quarter. "It sucks not being out there for your team, especially at this point in the season," James said. Dwyane Wade had 19 points and Chris Bosh added 18, but the Heat wilted in temperatures that soared to 90 degrees in the second half. "It was tough on both teams," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "They were pretty dead. We tried to get guys in and out. ... It was really hot out there." James, who had cramping issues two years ago in the finals, had to ask for a break in the fourth quarter and was getting treatment during a 15-4 Spurs run that turned around the game. James came back in and made a basket that cut it to two points with about 4 minutes left, but couldnt even run back on defence, promptly putting his hand up and lingering at the baseline until help arrived to take him off for good. "I think it felt like a punch in the gut when you see your leader limping like that back to the bench," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. Danny Green followed with 3-pointer to trigger what became a 16-3 run to end the game. "You could see the heat was getting to a lot of guys. If I played as many minutes as he did, Id probably be cramping up, too," said Green, who scored 11 of his 13 points in the final quarter. The ccrowd chanted "Beat the Heat! Beat the Heat!" late in the game, which was just what the fans themselves were trying to do.dddddddddddd The Spurs said an electrical failure for the power that runs the air conditioning system had occurred. They apologized for the inconvenience but also seemed to poke fun of it, playing songs with "hot" in the lyrics over the sound system. Fans were trying to cool themselves on the hot night, a reminder of what it was like in the old Boston Garden when the Celtics and Lakers got together. The Heat are the first team since those Celtics of 1984-87 to get to four straight finals. They are well-rested after a relatively easy roll through the Eastern Conference playoffs, a key to keeping Wade healthy entering the finals. James was the MVP of the series last year when the Heat rallied from five points down in the final half-minute of regulation to win Game 6 in overtime, then won a Game 7 that was close the whole way for their second straight championship. A rematch was widely anticipated and was close almost throughout. The Heat led 86-79 after Boshs four-point play with 9:38 remaining in the game, but it was all San Antonio from there, and Wade said there were problems even beyond James absence. "Obviously, tonight we wouldve loved to have him in there to finish the game, but weve got to finish the game better," Wade said. The Spurs ended up extending their NBA-record streak to eight straight home playoff wins by 15 or more points. Their roster is filled with international players, such as Parker and Ginobili, who both said they were used to playing without air conditioning overseas. Bosh, scoreless in Game 7 last year, scored Miamis first five points in the Heats 7-2 start. But Ginobili came off the bench firing, making consecutive 3-pointers for an 18-13 lead. Wade and James combined for six straight points before Ginobili made another 3, and Patty Mills added one to close the first-quarter scoring and give the Spurs a 26-20 advantage. The Spurs committed nine turnovers while managing only 20 points in the third quarter, and Miami led 78-74 heading to the fourth. Notes: James joined Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant as the only players with 4,000 points and 1,000 assists in the post-season. ... Ray Allen moved past Bryant and Derek Fisher into second place on the career list with 49 3-pointers in the NBA Finals. Robert Horry, a former Spurs forward, is the leader with 56.

Put into bat first, for once Kolkatas experienced opening pair of Gambhir and Robin Uthappa didnt fire, with the latter dismissed for eight by the impressive Mitchell McClenaghan (2-25) in the fourth over.A fairly sedate start by the Knight Riders - at 45-1 in the seventh over - suddenly then sparked into life as Pandey hit Hardik Pandya for the first six of the innings over long-on.Two more maximums followed from Pandeys bat, while Gambhir struck one, although he was fortunate to be at the crease, having been dropped on 30 by Sharma at midwicket off Jagadeesha Suchith, and then again on 55 by Jasprit Bumrah, a simple chance off his own bowling.The Kolkata skipper made Mumbai pay, with his fifty coming off 39 deliveries, and his partner Pandeys even quicker at 26 balls - though he fell soon after, caught and bowled by Harbhajan Singh (1-31).In came Russell, who smashed three sixes in his first eight balls, including two in the same Tim Southee over.He managed one more maximum before dragging McClenaghan onto his stumps in the 18th over, Mumbai fighting back well at the end of the innings - Gambhir finally dismissed, caught by wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, and Colin Munro run out for four.Sharma signalled Mumbais intent third ball by smashing Russell for six over deep square leg, as he and Patel (23 off 20) went about putting fifty on for the first wicket inside the first five overs, before the latter was run out by Brad Hogg in the sixth.After Pandya wasted 10 balls for just nine runs at three, McClenaghan (20) was sent in up the order as a pinch-hitter, ahead of Buttler and Kieron Pollard.The move paid off as the New Zealander slogged three sixes in his eight-ball knock, punishing Piyush Chawla for back-to-back sixes in the 11th over, before falling to Kuldeep Yadav soon after.Sharma serenely went through to fifty off 38 balls while Buttler got going at the other end - hitting three sixes and two fours off five consecutive deliveries across the 15th and 16th overs to swing the game in Mumbais favour.Buttler couldnt see it through to the finish, falling in the penultimate over, but Sharma smacked Russells next three balls for boundaries, and Pollard nudged the single needed from the final over to win it for Mumbai.Watch continued coverage of the IPL on Sky Sports, with the next live action seeing the two new franchises, Gujarat Lions and Rising Pune Supergiants face off from 3pm on Sky Sports 2 on Thursday.

David Clarkson Blue Jackets Jersey.A. remained bitter for Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers on the long flight back home to New York.SHANGHAI, China -- The only three Americans in the 78-man field were easy to find Thursday in the BMW Masters. Just look at the top of the leaderboard. Luke Guthrie packed a 2-litre bottle of Mountain Dew and flew halfway around the world for one week, hopeful he would at least broaden his experience by playing golf on foreign soil. He got more than he expected. The 23-year-old American took 19 putts -- one short of the European Tour record -- chipped in twice and had a 7-under 65. Not only did Guthrie have a three-shot lead, his score was more than 9.67 shots better than the course average. "It was one of the better rounds Ive ever played," Guthrie said. Even more surprising was the guy right behind him -- John Daly, playing for the first time since surgery in July to repair the torn tendon in his right elbow. After a strict rehabilitation of icing the elbow and drinking enough chocolate milk to put on 15 pounds, Daly navigated the 30 mph wind at Lake Malaren without a bogey for a 68. "I gained a little bit of weight, but when you take 15 or 16 weeks off, youre going to," Daly said. His mother once told him that Vitamin D milk was cure for any ailment. Adding the chocolate was Dalys idea. Another shot back was Peter Uihlein, the only American who didnt seem out of place at this European Tour event in Shanghai. Uihlein already has won on the European Tour this year, was runner-up twice and is 10th on the money list. He hasnt forgotten his New England roots. Uihlein watched the Boston Red Sox take a 3-0 lead in the World Series before he headed to the practice range, and perhaps it was no coincidence that upon learning of the 8-1 win, Uihlein played 5-under the rest of the way for a 69. "Its a good day," he said. Uihlein ended it with an exquisite flop shot from behind the 18th green in which he let the wind hold it up in the air, and used the slope to bring it back to tap-in range. The biggest surprise was the wind, which ripped across Lake Malaren all day and made the greens particularly fast, firm and crispy. Only 13 players managed to break par, a group that included Graeme McDowell (70) and Rory McIlroy (71). "Ive never witnessed wind like this in China," McIlroy said. Everything was new to Guthrie, who played in California and Las Vegas the last two weeks to start the new 2013-14 season on the PGA Tour. It makes little sense for him to travel all the way to China for one week before returning to America to play two more PGA Tour events. But after his debut at the British Open this year -- a missed cut -- Guthrie was determined to expand his horizons. He flew from Las Vegas to Shanghai, arriving Tuesday and never leaving the hotel.dddddddddddd. He shook off the jet lag during the pro-am on Wednesday, and he produced a score that no one imagined on such a blustery day. Guthrie drinks Mountain Dew to a fault, and he couldnt find any in Scotland. He brought his own stash to Shanghai, which makes him a quick study. "This is my first time over in China and Asia, and I just wanted to challenge myself to come travel abroad and get used to this, and just keep gaining experiences and get better at becoming a global player," he said. "And its nice to get off to a good start today." More important than the caffeine-laced soda was his short game. Guthrie had about a 25-foot putt on the 10th hole when he realized it was the longest putt he had faced all day. And then he realized he had one-putted every green on the front nine. What skewed the statistics was his three-hole stretch in the middle of the back nine that built some separation -- a routine up-and-down for birdie on the par-5 13th, pitching a 25-yard shot over the bunker and into the cup for an unlikely birdie on the 14th, and then using the wind to hold up a flop shot from beyond the green at the par-5 15th. Once it landed, the ball ran toward the cup like a putt and dropped for eagle. "The leader is 7-under, level par is 14th. That kind of sums it up, really," McDowell said. "Luke Guthrie is obviously a hell of a player. I dont know a lot about him except that hes good. And that was a great performance from him. Another windy day ahead tomorrow, so its just a case of trying to jockey for position." The BMW Masters is the first of four tournaments called "The Final Series," all with at least $7 million in prize money as European Tour members make their way to Dubai for the end of the season. McDowell is trying to chase down Henrik Stenson in the Race to Dubai. Stenson, who played with McDowell and McIlroy, opened with a 72. Paul Casey, Thongchai Jaidee and Wales Open winner Gregory Bourdy were among those at 70. McIlroy had a pair of three-putt bogeys -- one of them from 10 feet early in the round -- but was pleased with his play from tee-to-green. McDowell said he was looking like "the Rory McIlroy of 2011, 2012," alluding to when the 24-year-old from Northern Ireland won two majors, each by eight shots. "Its a bit ominous," he said of the ease in McIlroys swing. Coming off a tie for second in South Korea last week, McIlroy was pleased with the quality of his golf, and with his position. "It could have been better," he said. "But on a day like today, its just good to keep yourself there, or thereabouts."

PHILADELPHIA -- Steve Mason and the Flyers are playing their best hockey of the season heading into the Olympic break. Its a break team chairman Ed Snider would love to abolish. Mason stopped 38 shots, and Mark Streit and Michael Raffl scored goals, leading the Philadelphia Flyers past the Colorado Avalanche 3-1 on Thursday night. But with one game left before the break, the Flyers recent spurt could stall because of the Olympics. "I hate them," said Snider, the Flyers founder. He added: "Its ridiculous, the whole thing is ridiculous. I dont care if it was in Philadelphia, I wouldnt want to break up the league. I think its ridiculous to take three weeks off, or however long it is, in the middle of the season. It screws up everything. .. How can anybody be happy breaking up their season. No other league does it, why should we? Theres no benefit to us whatsoever. If anything, I can only see negatives." Reminded the Flyers reached the Stanley Cup finals during the last Olympics in 2010, Snider laughed. "Maybe I like them," he said. "I forget about that." Claude Giroux, who scored an empty-netter with 20 seconds left Thursday against the Avalanche, has plenty of time to rest during the break. He was snubbed Thursday by Hockey Canada when Martin St. Louis was picked as an injury replacement for his Tampa Bay teammate Steven Stamkos. Steve Yzerman, the Canadians executive director and Tampa Bays general manager, chose St. Louis over Giroux and Pittsburghs James Neal. "Its a farce," Snider said. "Hes one of the best players in the game. Its ridiculous. Hes better than half the guys on that team. "Anybody that thinks that Claude Giroux doesnt belong on the Canadian team, they dont know anything about hockey as far as Im concerned. Its politics, to a certain degree. He had to pick his own guy. His own guy is good, but Claude is better." The Avalanche, who lost 5-1 to the New York Rangers on Tuesday, couldnt solve Mason until it was too late. The Avalanche called timeout with 1:27 left and pulled goalie Semyon Varlamov in a last-gasp effort at the tying goal. It didnt work. The Flyers scored in the second period, when Streits shot from the blue line was deflected by a defenceman and wobbled past Varlamov for his eighth goal. Streit is heading to his fourth Olympics for Switzerland. The Flyers got a scare when centre Brayden Schenn was checked from behind into the boards by Patrick Bordeleau. Schenn quickly got on his skates, and his teammates went after Bordeleau behind the net. Bordeleau threw his right elbow into Schenns back and the Flyer thumped the board, and then hit the ice. Bordeleau was hit with 5 minutes for checking from behind and a game misconduct. Colorado coach Patrick Roy was red faced and furious as he argued with the officials that the hit didnt merit an ejection. Masons play picked up after a recent pep talk from Hall of Fame goalie Bernie Parent. Mason stopped 14 shots in the first period and made the save of the night in the second when he robbed Gabriel Landeskog with a glove save from his rear. "I think we didnt make it hard enough for him in the first 55 minutes," Landeskog said. "I think the last five, we were in his face, banging rebounds, and trying to bang one home there and made it hard on him. We started throwing pucks from different angles and tough angles and what not." Mason posted a 1.51 goals-against-average over his last four starts, stopped 95 per cent of his shots and had two shutouts. "The job as starting goalie every night is to make sure we provide stability back there, and thats what Im trying to do," he said. Raffls seventh goal of the season, off a nice pass by Sean Couturier from behind the net, early in the third was the insurance the Flyers needed to win their third straight. Notes: The Flyers had a video tribute and a moment of silence for former coach and general manager Keith Allen. Allen died Tuesday. He was 90. "I love Keith Allen," Snider said. ... Lauren Hart, the daughter of longtime former Flyers broadcaster Gene Hart, sang "God Bless America," alternating lyrics with Kate Smith, who was on a video image. Smiths rendition of the song has been a rallying anthem for the Flyers since the mid-1970s. Tie Domi Maple Leafs Jersey Authentic. The Stampeders announced the move on Wednesday.

Du Plessis received a yellow card in the 16th minute when, from an offside position, he made a jarring high tackle on flyhalf Dan Carter which forced the world-record points scorer from the field with a dislocated shoulder. The 29-year-old hooker, in his 51 test, was then sent from the field in the 42nd minute when he received a second yellow card for elbowing flanker Liam Messam in the throat. New Zealand exploited his absence, scoring four tries to two to remain unbeaten after four rounds of the four-nation tournament. "Its always hard when you play New Zealand. I guess when you play 50 minutes with 14 men it doesnt make it any easier," Springboks captain Jean de Villiers said. "What a way to disappoint yourself, dishing up a performance like that. But I think weve seen tonight how far we are still behind the All Blacks. Credit must go to them, the way that they played. Theyre a fantastic team and we can learn a lot from them. "Its definitely not fatigue that had the best of us today. Defensively we were very poor, we didnt make our tackles and thats something we pride ourselves on." New Zealand also ended the match short-handed, reduced to 13 men after French referee Romain Poite, bizarrely officious, showed yellow cards to Read, for a professional foul, and to centre Maa Nonu, for a late shoulder charge on Springboks captain Jean de Villiers. New Zealand scored a try to lock Brodie Retallick during Du Plessis first absence to take control of a brutally physical match. Du Plessis returned from the sin-bin to score a try of his own but his second and final dismissal left New Zealand with a numerical advantage which they exploited with Reads second try and another to flanker Sam Cane. The win left New Zealand and in a strong position to carry off the Championship crown, though they will have to beat South Africa again at Johannesburg. They ended South Africas nine match winning streak - stretching back to the last meeting between the teams in South Africa - and extended an unbeaten record at Eden Park which began in 1994. New Zealand enhanced its standing as the No. 1 team in world rugby with its 383rd test match victory which broke Frances world record of 382 wins in tests. The All Blacks achieved the mark in 505 tests whereas France needed 695 matches to reach 382 wins. The match was not one which enhanced South Africas reputation. They arrived in New Zealand in a high state of confidence after their ninth-straight test win, a 38-12 dismantling of Australia which gave them their first-ever test match victory in Brisbane. They expressed that strong sense of confidence in the lead up to the match, suggesting their four-year losing streak in New Zealand and 76-year drought at Edden Park were about to end.dddddddddddd. The Springboks talked about a new era in their own game in which they would build a new attacking style on the solid framework built by a dominating forward pack. But Saturdays match - from the fourth minute when Read scored his first try - showed the Springboks confidence was slightly misplaced. They had no ability to match the pace or scope of the All Blacks game and their first try, through Du Plessis in the 31st minute, came from a traditional rolling maul. South Africa competed physically, often ferociously, through the first half and were still in the match, with the help of Du Plessis try, when they trailed 17-10 at halftime. But, in keeping with the tone of recent matches between the teams, they faded as the second half progressed and as the pace of the All Blacks game exacerbated the physical toll of a match of giant collisions. The Springboks were not even dominant in the physical contest. They won an inconsequential victory when they displaced the first All Blacks scrum but from that point on New Zealand asserted itself and became better than South Africa in most aspects of the match. Read, who took over the captaincy from the injured Richie McCaw, and Sam Cane, who wore McCaws No. 7 jersey in his 10th test, produced courageous performances for New Zealand. Lock Retallick and flanker Messam were also outstanding as was Beauden Barrett, who took over at flyhalf from Carter. "Its very humbling. Everyone in the team put their body on the line and gave their all and we came out on top," All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said. "Someone like Sam Cane who I thought was outstanding tonight. He had some doubters around the country but I think he showed hes good enough to be here. "But he was ably supported by everybody ... all 23 played well. One of the big pluses for the All Blacks is that when were playing well our tight five are all ball-carriers and passers and the athleticism of those guys, which goes with their core roles and their physicality, gives us an advantage." Barrett created the try of the match in the 21st minute, slicing open the Springboks defence on a long, solo run which ended in a try to Retallick - the first of his test career. Read showed his immense power to twice breach the South African defence on lone raids from close to the line. On the first occasion, after a skewed kick by winger Bryan Habana, New Zealand forced an attacking lineout, went short and Read drove over on the openside. On the second occasion, in the 48th minute and after a long accumulation of phases, he crashed over under the posts to give New Zealand a decisive 24-10 lead. Cane, who repeatedly visited the blood bin and ended the match smeared in blood, scored in the 67th minute from another long buildup by the All Blacks forwards. South Africa hit back when New Zealand was down to 13 men with a try to replacement Patrick Lambie but missed an important bonus point.

TAMPA, Fla. -- Sometimes Steven Stamkos does things that his Tampa Bay Lightning teammates cant help but marvel at. "Just about every shift," linemate Tyler Johnson said. That was clear in Game 1 against the Montreal Canadiens when Stamkos went end-to-end before settling the rolling puck on his stick and firing a perfect shot far side past Carey Price. And even though the Lightning lost the game, that highlight and his two-goal night showed why Stamkos is the X-factor that can tip the balance of the series, no matter how well or how poorly the Habs play. "Thats what we expect out of him," winger Alex Killorn said Thursday. "As long as he continues that, I think he gives us a good chance of winning." Even with starting goaltender Ben Bishop and rookie-of-the-year candidate Ondrej Palat out with upper-body injuries, and even with more than a dozen players making their Stanley Cup playoff debut, the Lightning know they can count on Stamkos. And thats after the 24-year-old Markham, Ont., native missed four months with a broken leg. Stamkos returned March 6 and had five goals in his first seven games. But Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said that the stats were deceiving. "Those first 10-15 games, he wasnt himself," Cooper said Wednesday. "He was just slowly getting himself back. I would say these last five, six games that hes played, hes been an impact player for us." The only other player in the series who has the potential to make as much of an impact is Habs defenceman P.K. Subban, who has known Stamkos since the two played together for the North York Canadiens as eight-year-olds. Subban and Stamkos won a city championship together, then gold in 2008 with Canadas world junior team. Since, their families have remained close friends while theyve built up some healthy animosity as competitors. "I love playing against him," Subban said. "I like making him frustrated, and Im sure hell like to score on me. But the history that we have of playing each other, its been back and forth. When Im on the ice, Im sure he knows Im out there, and I know hes out there." Subban liked getting Stamkos involved in pushing and shoving after the whistle in Game 1 because it meant he was starting to get to him. Beyond that, the Habs defenceman expressed nothing but respect and admiration for his childhood teammate. "That guy, as far as Im concerned, hes probably the best goal-scorer in the league," Subban said. "Good players like him they find ways to be invisible on the ice, and they appear when they have to appear. And players like Stamkos, (Sidney) Crosby and (John) Tavares, they have that ability to disappear and then youre looking over your shoulder and next thing you know the pucks between your legs and hes tapping it in backdoor." That was one of Stamkoss goals, when Killorn gave him a perfect pass on a two-on-one past a siding Andrei Markov. But it was his first of Game 1, a wicked shot that followed a breathtaking rush, that had everyone buzzing. More impressive than banking the puck off the boards to evade Brandon Prust or even the shot itself was how Stamkos managed to settle the puck down in a split second. Teammate J.T. Brown knows he could do the same, but only if he had 20 seconds. Subban didnt realize Stamkos found a way to get the puck down before firing the shot by Price. He simply appreciated how Stamkos finished things off with such subtle skill. "I think sometimes as a shooter, they recognize when to release it," Subban said. "Its not about how hard it is, its just about where you put it and how quick you get it off. He got it off pretty quick. I dont think he needed as much power behind it because he was skating so fast. He had so much momentum already." It was the games most memorable play on a night full of them. It shouldnt be shocking that Stamkos brought his best with the spotlight so bright, given how he beams about being back in the playoffs for the first time since 2011. "Its an unbelievable experience," Stamkos said Wednesday. "Its the most fun a lot of guys have had playing hockey. The intensity is at a whole new level." Elite players find a way to reach or exceed that level. With Bishop unlikely to play this series and Palat a game-time decision for Game 2 Friday night, Tampa Bay as a team has plenty to work on. Turnovers are an issue and so is defensive-zone play, but Stamkos is far from a problem. Instead, he represents the Lightnings best chance to do something special at any given moment. "I dont know what he can do more," Johnson said. "Hes fun to play with, fun to watch, and Im glad hes on our team and not playing against him."

They swung for a much higher fence with the eighth overall pick on Friday night, landing the "electrifying" William Nylander from Sweden. A speedy, highlight-reel winger, he is the son of longtime NHL centre Michael Nylander and the first European Toronto has drafted in the first round since Jiri Tlusty in 2006. Nylander is also the first draft pick of the Brendan Shanahan era and an injection of homegrown game-breaking ability, long-starved within the Leaf organization. "Hes got high, high-end skill," gushed general manager Dave Nonis, shortly after the pick was made. And that fills a need within the prospect ranks of the organization, considerably deprived over the years. Though hopeful that the likes of Carter Verhaeghe, Connor Brown and Andreas Johnson may eventually make an impact of sorts with the big club, the Leafs simply did not boast a game-breaker with Nylanders ceiling beyond the NHL club (and have not historically). They havent landed many at all from the draft. Vincent Damphousse, picked sixth overall in 1986, was the last homegrown player to register at least 80 points in a season as a Leaf. Toronto has, additionally, sent only two homegrown players to the All-Star game in the past 20 years, neither of whom was a forward (Tomas Kaberle and Felix Potvin). Dealing first round picks - as they did five times from 2003-2011 - certainly didnt help the matter. Nylander may or may not make it, but he, at the very least, represents the kind of high upside, homegrown talent the organization has mostly lacked, especially up front - Nazem Kadri, who scored 20 goals as a 23-year-old last season, was a recent exception. Nonis wouldnt go as far as to say that adding skill was a priority, but labeled it "an area of weakness". "He might be the most skilled player in the draft," said the Leafs GM of Nylander. Nonis saw that skill firsthand at the Under-18 tournament in Finland this past April. Nylander, playing for Sweden, led all players with 16 points in seveen games, notching six goals along the way.dddddddddddd As a teenager, he spent part of last season in Swedens top league, totaling a goal and seven points in 22 games - notable given his age and size (5-foot-11, 169 pounds). "He has NHL speed, NHL hands, an NHL shot right now," Nonis said. "Its whether or not the rest of his game can catch up." Unwilling to pay Dale Tallons price for the first overall pick and rights to draft Aaron Ekblad, Nonis said he actually considered moving down if one of two players - Nylander among them - wasnt there to be had with the eighth pick. Nylander grew up around the NHL, his father totaling 920 NHL games for seven different teams. That kept the younger Nylander in North America until the age of 14 when he moved to Sweden, eventually playing alongside his 40-year-old dad last year (with Rogle in the second-tier league). "I like to score goals and make plays," Nylander said, projecting an aura of confidence and cool, noticeably unfazed by all that surrounded him. A free agent and thus able to come to North America next year if he and the organization so choose, Nylander will audition for the Leafs in the fall. "Hell definitely have a chance to make our team," Nonis said. "[But] I really dont care how skilled you are, its very difficult to make the NHL as an 18-year-old. I think itd be a long shot for him to do that, but hes going to be given that opportunity and if hes good enough to stick and play and contribute then we would keep him. If not, well decide at that point whether its best to keep him over in North America or to have him go back to Sweden to play in the Elite League." Nylander boasts a "VERY high ceiling" according to Mark Seidel, chief scout for North American Central Scouting, but has been trailed by attitude questions, something Nonis brushed aside as outward confidence. Like most draftees, the new Leaf prospect will have to get bigger and stronger before he is likely to make the leap to the NHL, additionally requiring some acclimation to the North American ice surface. "It may take him a month to acclimate, it might take him over a year - I dont know that," said Nonis. "But the skill-set is very high end."

METAIRIE, La. - The New Orleans Saints have re-signed receiver Joseph Morgan for one year and have agreed to a four-year deal with free agent fullback Erik Lorig. Morgan returns after a knee injury in training camp cost him all of last season. Lorig joins New Orleans after spending his first four NFL seasons with Tampa Bay, where he also played tight end. Financial terms have not been released for the deals, which were announced Tuesday. Morgan began his career in New Orleans as an undrafted free agent in 2011 and made his regular season debut in 2012, when he caught 10 passes for 379 yards and three touchdowns. Lorig has served as the lead blocker for a pair of 1,000-yard rushers. He also has 30 catches for 193 yards and a touchdown.

Duke spent six years in Pittsburgh and also had stints with Arizona, Washington and Cincinnati.GENEVA -- Risk-taking and counterattacks are the new fashion in football, according to a FIFA study of World Cup teams tactics. "The trend is for teams to play positively and do everything to win a game rather than merely not lose," FIFAs panel of coaching experts working in Brazil reported Friday. The best teams were rewarded for being "not afraid of losing their shape for brief moments," the 284-page document noted. "Outstanding fast transitions and counterattacking tactics," were praised as the most effective strategy at a World Cup which equaled the tournament record for most goals and was widely praised as the best in a generation. It was a different story four years ago. Then, the football was so poor in South Africa that FIFA President Sepp Blatter asked a task force to suggest ways of making football more entertaining. Though that panel achieved little, in Brazil the teams, coaches and players rose to their challenge. "The tempo of the game was impressive -- Brazil 2014 was one of, if not the fastest World Cups ever played," the FIFA technical report said. Other successful trends in Brazil included playing with at least two strikers, three central defenders and only one defensive midfielder. Controversial incidents -- including Uruguay forward Luis Suarez biting an opponent, and players continuing despite apparent head injuries -- are not mentioned in the document. Teams are also rarely criticized, though Brazil is not spared after being outplayed by eventual winner Germany and the Netherlands. "An incomprehensibly poor performance against Germany," the report said of the host nations semifinal humbling, adding that 7-1 was "a fair reflection of the strengths of the two teams." FIFAs coaches noted Brazils "attacking game not quite clicking into gear and some co-ordination problems obvious in defence." Tactically, the FIFA report says top teams no longer use two holding midfielders, which was effective in South Africa. A lone striker is also out of fashion. "Most teams played with two strikers (if not three), and the few teams that played with one lone attacker left the competition early," the report said. Goalkeepers like Germanys Manuel Neuer now functionn as an extra outfield player, and specialized coaching should reflect that, the report said.dddddddddddd The report suggests playing with three central defenders is "on the rise again" thanks to the third-place Netherlands, surprise quarterfinalist Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay. Four years after Spain rode its tiki-taka passing to win the World Cup, the report notes effective use of the ball is now more important than simply having it. In Brazil, 21 of 64 matches were won by the counterattacking team having less possession. "Possession play must be efficient and not sterile," the report noted, adding that 34 of 171 goals in Brazil came from "quick transition play." "Counter-attacking tactics were once a tool in a teams armoury, but now some teams base their entire play around such tactics," the report said. More goals than expected came from corner kicks and "remarkable" high-quality crosses, and early leads were often overturned. "Teams that scored the first goal were at times too confident and too sure of themselves," the report said. Defensive tactics included aggressive pressing to get the ball in the first 15 minutes, and holding a back line at least 40 metres from goal. "Teams defended in a compact block in a high line and overloaded the area where the ball was," the report said. Costa Rica and Algeria are praised for making progress, and so was the CONCACAF region which also had Mexico and the United States reach the second round "Good development work has seen the gap between (CONCACAF) teams narrow, which automatically means that there is healthy competition and an improved standard of football," the report states. "Europe can be more than happy with their performance at Brazil 2014," the report said, after winning for the first time in the Americas. The four winless Asian confederation teams "lacked creativity, ideas, penetration and players who could turn a match in their favour." FIFAs experts also hope the World Cup will encourage a generation of unselfish players putting their team first. "Individual skill can only be effective if it is fully in sync with the efforts and philosophy of the team."
