Trinbago Knight Riders 170 for 5 (Amla 81, Dwayne Bravo 66*, Hosein 2-18) beat Barbados Tridents 159 for 8 (Taylor 37, Narine 2-21) by 11 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsFive overs into the match in Port-of-Spain, it looked like visiting side Barbados Tridents would be runaway winners. Cheap Nike Flyknit Shoes . Then, Dwayne Bravo joined Hashim Amla at the crease, and the game changed. Dwayne Bravo and Amla came together with Trinbago Knight Riders 20 for 4 - with Brendon McCullum, Colin Munro, Darren Bravo and Umar Akmal already dismissed - and went on to record the highest ever fifth-wicket partnership in T20 cricket. Their stand of 150 came at almost ten to the over, eventually consigning Tridents to a 11-run defeat. Tridents put Knight Riders in, and struck their early blows through the left-arm spin of Akeal Hosein and pace of Ravi Rampaul. Hosein was the first to break through, bowling the New Zealand pair of McCullum and Munro with balls that held their lines, before Rampaul had Darren Bravo and Akmal caught behind. The next bit of success any Tridents bowler enjoyed came off the very last ball of the innings, when Amla was out for 81. His innings came off 54 balls and included four sixes, two of which came in his South Africa team-mate Wayne Parnells final over. That over, the 17th of the innings, went for 19 runs; Amla hit the second ball into the stands down the ground and hooked the third for six more.Dwayne Bravo hit four sixes of his own, in a knock of 66 not out off 46. The partnership was the highest for any wicket in the CPL.Tridents were off to a decent start in their chase, with Steven Taylor and Kyle Hope putting on 41, before Hope was lost just as the Powerplay concluded. That Taylor survived that long was down to a good chunk of luck in the first over: off the second ball, Taylor skied one which fell in the middle of three fielders, before Munro dropped a straightforward chance at long-on - parrying it for six, to make matters worse for Knight Riders.But neither Taylor nor Hope could score at a rapid rate, a trend that continued with Shoaib Malik and AB de Villiers. Malik managed to become the tenth player to 6000 T20 runs during his innings off 28 off 24, while de Villiers scratched his way to 12 off 14 before falling to that man Dwayne Bravo. Kieron Pollard registered a golden duck while attempting an ambitious shot off seamer Kevon Cooper, and with Sunil Narine at his miserly best, Knight Riders were in control. The only real threat to them came from Nicholas Pooran, who slammed 33 off 12 from No. 6, but a run-out ended his challenge prematurely.

"Were just throwing s--- at the wall hoping something sticks," said Tortorella about the possible line combinations for Fridays game against Columbus. The Canucks have lost five straight games and six of their last seven, leaving them in a logjam in the Pacific Division, currently sitting fifth - good for ninth in the Western Conference. http://www.nikeflyknitclearance.com/ . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. Durham 193 for 2 (MacLeod 83, Stoneman 82*) beat Derbyshire 180 for 9 (Broom 68, Durston 44, Borthwick 3-33) by 13 runsScorecard Mark Stoneman and Calum MacLeod shared Durhams record Twenty20 stand of 141 as they beat Derbyshire by 13 runs at Emirates Riverside.Both teams went into the match knowing that victory could get them into the NatWest T20 Blast quarter-finals if either Warwickshire or Yorkshire lost.Warwickshire duly obliged, so Durham overtook them to go through in fourth place. It was due reward for amassing 193 for two, to which Derbyshire replied with 180 for 9.The visitors were up with the rate while skipper Wes Durston was making 44 off 26 balls, but when he was third out in the eighth over they lost momentum.It looked too tall an order by the time New Zealanders Neil Broom and Jimmy Neesham needed 99 off the last eight overs and left-hander Neesham holed out at long-on for six.Shiv Thakor revived hopes with three sixes off the spinners in making 26 off ten balls, but once he had skied Scott Borthwick to cover it was as good as over.Although Broom showed his class in making 68 off 43 balls, Derbyshire threw wickets away in desperation and slipped to 150 for eight before debutant wicketkeeper Alex Mellor, on loan from Warwickshire, helped to put on 26 before Broom was well caught by MacLeod at long-on in the final over.Stoneman, who is joining Surrey at the end of the season, batted through the Durham innings for 82 off 56 balls, with eight fours and one six, while MacLeods 83 came off 50 balls and included three sixes.He also shared the countys previous T20 record stand of 126, set with John Hastings aagainst Northants two years ago. Nike Flyknit Wholesale. Stoneman hit four fours through the off side in the first three overs, two of them in the third as Ben Cotton conceded 14.Keaton Jennings, taking Phil Mustards place at the top of the order, also began to find the boundary in a stand of 48. Stoneman, on 23, survived a steepler to Neesham, backtracking from mid-off, in an eventful sixth over from Thakor.Jennings followed up by twice driving the medium pacer down the ground, but when he tried for a third wide of mid-off Chesney Hughes flung himself to his right and held a sensational catch.Jennings exit halted the boundaries until MacLeod hit the last two balls of the tenth over for four and six. He swept Durstons off spin behind square then lifted him over long-on to take the score to 89 after ten.Thakor conceded only six runs in the 16th over, but then went for 17 in the 18th, leaving Neesham with the best figures of one for 25 after conceding only seven in the final over, when he also had MacLeod caught at short fine leg.Derbyshire lost Hamish Rutherford for one in the first over, when he pulled straight to mid-wicket as Chris Rushworth picked up 2 for 14 in three overs. His other victim was Chesney Hughes, who chipped the first ball to mid-wicket when Rushworth returned for the sixth over.At 51 for 2 after the powerplay, Derbyshire were two ahead of Durham at the same stage. But Durston departed for 44, made off 26 balls, when he tried to paddle Jennings medium pace to fine leg and was bowled. ' ' '

Trevor Bayliss believes Ben Stokes could develop into one of the all-time best allrounders following his Man-of-the-Match performance in Chittagong. Chandler Jones Limited Jersey .Bayliss, the England coach, made the comments after Stokes helped seal victory with 103 runs and six wickets in the match. Bayliss was particularly impressed with Stokes improvement against spin bowling on the sort of low, slow pitches on which he has struggled in the past.Coming to the crease in the second innings with England precariously placed on 46 for 4, Stokes compiled 85 in just over three hours with his trademark power complemented by some tight defence and mature rotation of the strike. He also gained reverse swing and generated impressive pace on a sluggish surface.He could be right up there with some of the all-time best allrounders, Bayliss said. Hes young into his career and thats going to be easier to judge the longer he goes. Only time will tell.But the strides hes made on the subcontinent playing spin have been top class. It wasnt all that long ago we were wondering how he might go on spin-friendly wickets, but hes a guy that works extremely hard in the nets.Its his defence to spin that has improved out of sight. We know that if he gets a bad ball he can hit anything over the fence, but youve got to be there to get that loose ball. In the past he probably hasnt had a lot of footwork, has played from the crease and backed his eye and his hands. But as weve seen on this tour, in the one-dayers and this Test, hes defended really well off the front foot, got right out and smothered the ball before it had a chance to spin and jump past the outside edge.It is not the first time Stokes has won high praise from an international coach. During Englands tour of the Caribbean in 2015, the then West Indies coach, Phil Simmons, remarked that Stokes was in the mould of Jacques Kallis and wished I had him at No. 6.... Thats the kind of cricketer you need.There will be those who scoff at such comments. They will point out that Bangladesh are rated the ninth-best team in the ICCs rankings and suggest that conclusions over Stokes worth be postponed until he has achieved success more consistently and against higher-ranked sides. But a reflection on some of the great allrounders best performances in Asia over the last half-century (see sidebar) underlines the impression that Stokes performance in Chittagong is worthy of some respect. Perhaps the next few weeks in India will define Stokes reputation in such conditions.There may also be an element of psychology in Bayliss comments; hearing such praise from his coach can do Stokes confidence no harm. But there can be little arguing with the allrounders value to the team. So much so that, while England are considering rotating other players, Bayliss feels it is likely that Stokes will, fitness permitting, play all seven Tests before Christmas. Moeen Ali is viewed similarly by the management.Stokes is very important, Bayliss said. He allows us to play that extra spinner and the third pace bowler. Mo batting at No. 5 plays a similar role to us, especially here in the subcontinent, and the way he played in the first innings, he is suited to playing spin bowling.We dont want to get halfway through the India series and have one or two guys injured and definitely out. And we also want to give those guys who will probably play at some stage some game time.But it would be a brave man to bet against Stokes playing all seven Tests. Im not sure wed be game enough to drop him anyway; we might get a thump in the head. Hes a very resilient person, let alone cricketer, and he just keeps on keeping on. Weve just got to watch what he does between the Tests to make sure he is available for all the matches.While other players might be equally reluctant to miss a Test - you would expect no less from a professional cricketer, Bayliss said - it does seem England are committed to changes ahead of the second Test in Dhaka. Steven Finn, who has impressed with his rhythm and pace in training, could well come in for Stuart Broad or perhaps Chris Woakes, and Zafar Ansari may come in for Gareth Batty or perhaps Adil Rashid.England are keen to reiterate no-one is being dropped - Broad bowled an especially impressive spell towards the end of the first Test, including nine consecutive overs at the end of the fourth day - but may feel that Rashid, who was not at his best in Chittagong, would benefit from another bowl ahead of the India series.Ultimately, the decision over who plays in Dhaka may come down to the England managements view of the pitch: if it looks like it will turn sharply, Rashid may be left out on the basis that the other bowlers will gain enough purchase. But if it looks flat, he will play as he can gain turn on surfaces they cannot. Bayliss, like Cook, is reluctant to field a fourth spinner and is not considering changing the batsmen.Its a bit like playing five pace bowlers on a green seamer, he reasoned. If three or four cant do the job... Remember, weve got Joe Root who can bowl decent spinners as well.I dont think theres any reason to change the top six at this stage. The top four guys found it very difficult against the new ball facing the spinners. That was very difficult facing good spin bowlers on a wicket which sometimes bounced up around your shoulder and sometimes skidded straight through. Im sure all the batters will be better for it.

They dont overwhelm anyone, but the Giants (8-3) do just enough to win and are in position to make the playoffs for the first time since 2011, when they won the Super Bowl.Manning threw a 32-yard TD pass to Beckham in the second quarter and added a 4-yarder to the star wide receiver with 5:10 left to finally put away the Browns (0-12).Cleveland has lost 15 in a row since last season. It is 3-30 since ending the 2014 season with five consecutive losses.BUCCANEERS 14, SEAHAWKS 5TAMPA, Fla. -- Jameis Winston threw a pair of touchdown passes to Mike Evans and Tampa Bays rejuvenated defense shut down Russell Wilson and Seattle.Evans scored on receptions of 3 and 23 yards in the opening quarter, a grieving Alterraun Verner had one of two interceptions off Wilson, and the Bucs sacked the Seattle quarterback six times.The Bucs (6-5) have won three straight to climb back into contention for a playoff berth.

After James White stretched for 4 yards on fourth-and-4, a 25-yard catch by Chris Hogan put the ball at the 8. Brady then zipped a pass to Mitchell to put the Patriots (9-2) ahead.A 2-point conversion try by White was initially ruled good, but the call was reversed because the ball never crossed the goal line -- giving the Jets (3-8) a final chance.But Chris Long hit Ryan Fitzpatrick before he could throw, resulting in a fumble that was recovered by Trey Flowers.It was the 500th win in franchise history for the Patriots, who became the first original AFL franchise to reach the mark.FALCONS 38, CARDINALS 19ATLANTA -- Taylor Gabriel took two short passes for touchdowns and the Atlanta Falcons returned from a bye week to add to Arizonas misery.Gabriel, cut by the winless Browns before the season, scored on plays of 35 and 25 yards that showed off his speed.His second score finished the Cardinals, who began the season touted as a Super Bowl contender but have been one of the NFLs most disappointing teams.The Falcons (7-4) began the day leading the NFC South and moved a step closer to their first playoff berth since 2012. The Cardinals (4-6-1) have lost two straight and three of their past four, putting them in danger of missing the postseason a season after reaching the NFC championship game.Coach Bruce Arians was on the sideline after falling ill and being briefly hospitalized early in the week, but it did little to inspire his team.CHARGERS 21, TEXANS 13HOUSTON -- Philip Rivers threw for 242 yards and three touchdowns against the mistake-prone Texans.Dontrelle Inman had 119 yards receiving and a touchdown to help San Diego (5-6) to the victory.The Texans (6-5) lost in Houston for the first time this season after winning their first five here.

Kareem Jackson was flagged for unnecessary roughness for a helmet-to-helmet hit on the play, leaving San Diego at the 12-yard line. Rivers delivered a touchdown pass to rookie Hunter Henry on the next play to push the lead to 21-10.Osweilers second interception came after that when he badly overthrew C.J. Fiedorowicz and Dwight Lowery made the easy grab.Houston added a field goal with 37 seconds left and recovered an onside kick. But Osweilers first shot at the end zone was knocked down, and the second one was intercepted as time expired.TITANS 27, BEARS 21CHICAGO -- Marcus Mariota threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns, and the Titans hung on to beat the depleted Bears.The Titans (6-6) gave their playoff hopes a boost, though they watched as Chicago (2-9) cut a 20-point lead to six in the fourth quarter. The Titans moved a half-game out of first place in the AFC South.Matt Barkley, starting for the injured Jay Cutler, led the late surge. The Bears had a first down at the Tennessee 7 in the final minute when Josh Bellamy dropped a pass in the end zone on first down. Barkleys next three attempts fell incomplete, preserving the win for Tennessee.Mariota, putting together one of the best seasons ever by a Titans quarterback, came through with another solid performance. The second-year pro completed 15 of 23 passes.SAINTS 49, RAMS 21NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Brees passed for 310 yards and four touchdowns and Mark Ingram scored twice.Playing 10 days after being knocked unconscious in a Thursday night loss at Carolina, Ingram rushed for 146 yards on 14 carries, including a 61-yard scamper and a 10-yard touchdown on a fourth-and-1 play. He also scored on a 21-yard screen to the right side of the field, which was wide open as the Rams (4-7) tried to pressure Brees.Two of Brees scoring strikes went to rookie Michael Thomas, whose touchdowns of 6 and 21 yards were part of a nine-catch, 108-yard performance. Brees other touchdowns went to Ingram and Brandon Coleman from 6 yards for New Orleans (5-6).Saints coach Sean Payton also victimized his former defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, with some razzle-dazzle that produced a 50-yard touchdown pass from receiver Willie Snead to running back Tim Hightower.DOLPHINS 31, 49ERS 24MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- Ndamukong Suh tackled Colin Kaepernick 2 yards short of the goal line as time ran out, and the Dolphins handed the 49ers a franchise-record 10th consecutive loss.Ryan Tannehill threw for 285 yards and three scores to compensate for a sputtering Miami ground game.With the 49ers trailing by seven, Kaepernick moved them from their 38 to the 6 in the final 1:44. But he threw incomplete on first down, and then was tackled from behind by the 305-pound Suh on the final play.The Dolphins (7-4) extended their winning streak to six games, their longest since 2005. Kaepernick passed for three TDs, but the 49ers (1-10) still havent won since the season opener.RAVENS 19, BENGALS 14BALTIMORE -- Justin Tucker kicked four field goals and Baltimore shut down the Bengals depleted offense.Joe Flacco threw for 234 yards and a touchdown to help Baltimore (6-5) snap a five-game losing streak against the Bengals (3-7-1), whose playoff hopes took another serious blow.The victory was not assured until Cincinnati quarterback Andy Dalton fumbled when sacked by Elvis Dumervil, and defensive end Lawrence Guy recovered at the Baltimore 21 with 1:05 left and the Ravens up 19-12.Cincinnati got a safety on the final play when Baltimore punter Sam Koch ran out of the end zone while his blockers intentionally held Cincinnati rushers. A game can end on an offensive penalty.At this point, the Bengals will need a sensational finish to extend their run of consecutive playoff appearances to six.BILLS 28, JAGUARS 21ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- LeSean McCoy scored twice, including a career-best 75-yard run.Tyrod Taylors 16-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter with 10:46 remaining put the Bills ahead for good during a second half in which the teams traded the lead five times.

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. Under Armour China Wholesale . -- Northern Arizona coach Jack Murphy had every reason to believe his team would take a big leap in the 2015-16 season.The Lumberjacks returned four players he considered starters from a team that made it to the championship game of the CollegeInsiders.com tournament and had talented newcomers who could contribute right away.Things fell apart quickly.Two of Northern Arizonas best players went down with season-ending injuries by the 10th game and the Lumberjacks never recovered, finishing 5-25 with a roster that included eight freshmen on scholarship and 11 overall.We literally had one practice last year with our full complement of guys, Murphy said. We were youth personified.There is an upshot to that trial-by-fire season: All those young players come back with far more experience than they would have had without the injuries.Theyll join senior forward Jordyn Martin, the 2014-15 Big Sky defensive player of the year, who played only three games last season because of a foot injury. Senior guard Jaleni Neely returns after being limited to nine games because of knee injury.Both are healthy and expected to be the leaders Murphy envisioned a year ago.Bruising senior forward Ako Kaluna also is back after having a breakout season with Martin out, giving the Lumberjacks some experience to go with all those young players.I feel like we have a chance to do something special this season, Neely said. Those guys got experience not too many freshman get and I think it will help them as far as maturity and seeing how the Division I level is. It also gave them a lot of confidence.A few more things to look for from the 2016-17 Lumberjacks:THE SCHEDULE: Northern Arizona had one of the hardest opening schedules in the country last season, playing Washington State, Boise State and Gonzaga all in one five-day road trip. The Lumberjacks lost all three games and won one road game all season. This seasons schedule has some tough games but not a brutal road trip right out of the gate. Northern Arizona has road games against Washington and UNLV, and hosts Arkansas-Little Rock and CSU Bakersfield, NCAA Tournament teams last season, during its nonconference schedule. I should have had my head examined before last season with that schedule, Murphy said. The schedule is far more palatable this year.MARTIN RETURNS: Martin established himself as a defensive force in 2014-15, able to play ballhandlers out on the floor or swoop in for blocked shots. The 6-foot-7 forward began to assert himself on the offensive end during NAUs run through the 2015 CIT, scoring a career-high 27 points against Sacramento State and grabbing a career-high 17 rebounds against NJIT. Murphy expected Martin to take a bigger jump last season, but it was derailed by the foot injury. Look for him to pick up his scoring -- he averaged 7.7 points two seasons ago -- in his final season in Flagstaff.NEELYS BACK: Neely was expected to join Kris Yanku in forming one of the Big Skys better backcourts last season. Instead, his season was derailed by the knee injury. This season, Yanku is gone after leaving to play professionally overseas, so Neely will be the Lumberjacks floor leader and go-to player when they need a big shot.---More AP college basketball: http://collegebasketball.ap.org Under Armour Clearance Sale .

By having more great seasons. Manning was the only unanimous choice for the 2013 Associated Press NFL All-Pro team Friday. Finding Carl Haas in an IndyCar garage was a simple matter of looking for the man with the cigar. His name was just as easy to spot in the record books as well.Haas, co-founder of Newman-Haas Racing with late actor Paul Newman, has died. He was 86.His company, Carl Haas Automobile Imports Inc., posted a statement on its website Thursday saying Haas died on June 29 at his home surrounded by family.Newman-Haas established itself as one of the most successful open-wheel teams, hiring Mario Andretti as its first driver. Among its other drivers were Michael Andretti, Nigel Mansell, Paul Tracy, Sebastien Bourdais and Christian Fittipaldi. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway issued a statement Thursday describing Haas as one of the most influential men in motorsports for nearly a half-century.Newman-Haas cars made 30 starts over a 28-year span at the Indianapolis 500 from 1983-2011, with six top-five finishes. He also fielded teams in Can-Am, Formula 1 and NASCAR.Known for his omnipresent cigar and a savvy business sense, Haas teamed with Newman to form Newman-Haas in 1983 and build a long record of success with the legendary Andretti leading that impressive driver roster.NHR won 107 IndyCar races and eight CART titles, including the final four in Champ Car, CARTs successor. Andretti won the 1984 title along with 18 races with the team over the final 12 years of his legendary career.Overall, Haas teams won 16 championships and more than 140 races over a 44-year career as an owner.He touched many lives and many careers with his involvement in the sport, Andretti said Thursday by phone. He certainly touched my life. I felt I should have some say in matters with the team and the engineers, and they gave me that.Though Newman was the face and oftentimes the voice for their successful racing operation, Haas was happy doing the everyday work in the background. Nike Air Force 1 Schweiz Sale. But make no mistake, Haas respected Newmans business mind and included him in every facet of a venture Andretti called a marriage made in Heaven.The pair endured some dark times as well.Haas and Newman were among a fierce group of team owners devoted to open wheel racing on road and street courses. That philosophy clashed with owner Tony George, whose family owns Indianapolis Motor Speedway and the marquee Indianapolis 500 and considered that race as the cornerstone for an oval-based series.Andretti recalls Haas and Newman eventually coming around to the concept of racing on an all circuits, but it wasnt easy.Paul and Carl were primarily devoted to road racing because they were both racers, Andretti said. They came to embrace ovals even if they didnt totally like it. When Tony started his series all he had was Indy, while CART had everything but Indy.Paul and Carl were loyal to who they were with, and held on to their ideal as long as they could.George eventually formed the rival Indy Racing League in 1996 and created a bitter open wheel racing split that damaged both circuits. The rival series eventually reunified in 2008 with Newman/Haas/Lanigan Racing being one of the final teams to join, but the sport has struggled to regain its stature.Andretti said Haas remained an unpretentious, likable personality who was never far from his cigar unless he was asleep.Fellow owners felt the same way.IndyCar and NASCAR team owner Chip Ganassi tweeted, R.I.P. Carl Haas. You were a mentor, a leader, and great friend to many including me. You will be missed my friend. ' ' ' 
PHOENIX -- A day after he threw a simulated game at Dodger Stadium, Clayton Kershaws return to the rotation remains undecided, reducing the possibility that he could come back by Thursdays game at Washington. Cheap Jordan 11 Gym Red .Kershaw has not pitched since June 26 because of a lower back injury that was diagnosed as a mild disk herniation. He is eligible to return from the disabled list, but the Dodgers are giving their staff ace more time to make sure he is 100 percent recovered.The Dodgers wanted to see how Kershaw came out of his Saturday session before deciding their next move. Manager Dave Roberts did not say there was a setback of any kind, but he still does not have a concrete plan for Kershaw at this time.After that [the simulated game], were just making sure he feels his body feels 100 percent ready to come back because when he does come back, we want him to stay healthy, Roberts said. Thats why were being extra cautious as we are with all of our players. A couple, two, three days, to see how his body responds, and how he feels, will give us a lot more clarity. Right now, as weve been, were reluctant to put any return date for Clayton. You have to defer to his health, obviously.It was Roberts who suggested last week that Kershaw could return on the road trip, which runs through a visit to St. Louis on July 24.The Dodgers will have made one turn through the rotation to start the second half by the end of Wednesdays game at Washington. Scott Kazmir and Hyun-Jin Ryu will pitch in the first two games of that series.It left the possibility that Kershaw could pitch Thursday. The Dodgers have not scheduled a pitcher beyond Wednesday in their daily game notes.Roberts said he had no qualms about pitching three left-handers in a single series, which would happen if Kershaw pitched Thursday. The manager also said he wasnt concerned about having Kershaw fly across the country to pitch after a back injury.Yet the longer the Dodgers wait to make a decision, the more likely it is that he returns later in the week. Roberts was even asked whether the Dodgers might wait until their next homestand to get Kershaw back into the mix.I think that for Clayton, if he feels well and the doctors support it, then whether its on the road or at home, that decision will be made, Roberts said. I cant even speak to when that would be. Were trying to give it just a couple more days to see how he feels. I think that after the exertion, when things start to settle, his body will feel a certain way, whether he feels refreshed and not sore or he feels sore, and we have to readjust.If Kershaw does not pitch in Washington, Bud Norris is in line to pitch Thursday. The tentative rotation at St. Louis would be Brandon McCarthy on Friday, Kenta Maeda on Saturday and Kazmir on Sunday Night Baseball, unless Kershaw takes one of those games.Kershaw is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA, and the Dodgers have won 14 of his 16 starts this season. Buy Real Jordans Online . After a lengthy wait, persistent rain finally forced the postponement of the Nationals game against the Miami Marlins on Saturday night.

MONTREAL -- The Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens, two longtime rivals, played an old-school contest on Monday night.After all the heavy hitting, Bostons Ryan Spooner got the final blow.Spooner scored in overtime and his goal withstood a video review, lifting the Bruins over the Canadiens 2-1.Spooner got his goal 3:20 into OT on a partial breakaway off a nice give-and-go with Torey Krug. Montreal challenged, claiming Spooner was offside, but the goal stood.That ended a rough-and-tumble game between franchises that first met in 1924.You saw a lot of hitting tonight, Bruins coach Claude Julien said. A lot of borderline hits, something we hadnt seen between these two teams for a while. The fans seemed to love it.Well try to keep within the rules and continue to make some exciting games between the two teams.It didnt take long for the bad blood to spill over between the rivals.Alexei Emelin set the tone for the encounter 13 minutes in with a big shoulder-to-shoulder body check along the boards on David Pastrnak.Krug answered seconds later with an elbow to the head on Andrew Shaw in open ice in the neutral zone. The Habs winger went straight to the dressing room but was back for the start of the second period. There was no penalty on Krug on the play.It was a good hit, Julien said.Montreals Brendan Gallagher disagreed. Gallagher took matters into his own hands, dropping the gloves with Krug with five minutes remaining in the first.When you see your teammate get up the way Shaw did, he had blood coming from his face, Shaw would have done that for every guy on this team, Gallagher said. Its tough whenever you play this team. A lot of emotions involved.Austin Czarnik also scored for the Bruins, and Tuukka Rask made 30 saves while Boston handed Montreal a rare home loss.Paul Byron scored late in the third period to salvvage a point for the Canadiens. Cheap Air Jordans From China. Carey Price stopped 27 shots in defeat, just his fifth loss in 21 starts this season.David Krejci appeared to give the Bruins a victory 59 seconds into overtime, but officials determined Pastrnak had interfered with Price.The loss was only Montreals third at the Bell Centre this year (14-1-2).The second period featured fewer dust-ups and was more about Price and Rask repeatedly frustrating their opponents.Price denied Czarnik on a partial break early in the frame. The Canadiens netminder then made a big pad save on Patrice Bergeron later on in the period.Rasks biggest stop in the second was when he went down and stacked the pads on Tomas Plekanec, just seconds after Pastrnak hit the post at the other end of the rink.Czarnik broke the deadlock with 1:05 remaining in the middle frame. The 24-year-old beat Price for his third goal of the season when he fired a shot between Prices pad and blocker while on a 2-on-1.

PHOENIX -- A day after he threw a simulated game at Dodger Stadium, Clayton Kershaws return to the rotation remains undecided, reducing the possibility that he could come back by Thursdays game at Washington. Cheap Jordan 11 Gym Red .Kershaw has not pitched since June 26 because of a lower back injury that was diagnosed as a mild disk herniation. He is eligible to return from the disabled list, but the Dodgers are giving their staff ace more time to make sure he is 100 percent recovered.The Dodgers wanted to see how Kershaw came out of his Saturday session before deciding their next move. Manager Dave Roberts did not say there was a setback of any kind, but he still does not have a concrete plan for Kershaw at this time.After that [the simulated game], were just making sure he feels his body feels 100 percent ready to come back because when he does come back, we want him to stay healthy, Roberts said. Thats why were being extra cautious as we are with all of our players. A couple, two, three days, to see how his body responds, and how he feels, will give us a lot more clarity. Right now, as weve been, were reluctant to put any return date for Clayton. You have to defer to his health, obviously.It was Roberts who suggested last week that Kershaw could return on the road trip, which runs through a visit to St. Louis on July 24.The Dodgers will have made one turn through the rotation to start the second half by the end of Wednesdays game at Washington. Scott Kazmir and Hyun-Jin Ryu will pitch in the first two games of that series.It left the possibility that Kershaw could pitch Thursday. The Dodgers have not scheduled a pitcher beyond Wednesday in their daily game notes.Roberts said he had no qualms about pitching three left-handers in a single series, which would happen if Kershaw pitched Thursday. The manager also said he wasnt concerned about having Kershaw fly across the country to pitch after a back injury.Yet the longer the Dodgers wait to make a decision, the more likely it is that he returns later in the week. Roberts was even asked whether the Dodgers might wait until their next homestand to get Kershaw back into the mix.I think that for Clayton, if he feels well and the doctors support it, then whether its on the road or at home, that decision will be made, Roberts said. I cant even speak to when that would be. Were trying to give it just a couple more days to see how he feels. I think that after the exertion, when things start to settle, his body will feel a certain way, whether he feels refreshed and not sore or he feels sore, and we have to readjust.If Kershaw does not pitch in Washington, Bud Norris is in line to pitch Thursday. The tentative rotation at St. Louis would be Brandon McCarthy on Friday, Kenta Maeda on Saturday and Kazmir on Sunday Night Baseball, unless Kershaw takes one of those games.Kershaw is 11-2 with a 1.79 ERA, and the Dodgers have won 14 of his 16 starts this season.
