ST. Matt Slauson Chargers Jersey . LOUIS -- The St. Louis Cardinals offence is back in one of those rough patches. They need to be out of this rut soon. "Theres nothing wrong with us getting a couple of hits early," manager Mike Matheny said after the Seattle Mariners snapped a five-game losing streak with a 4-1 victory Saturday night. "Theres nothing wrong with getting a couple of runs." Rookie James Paxton gave up two hits in six shutout innings, quieting a near-sellout crowd of 41,374, and the Cardinals dropped into a first-place tie in the NL Central. "I was really just kind of locked in on the catcher, I didnt really hear the crowd much," Paxton said. "I kind of noticed how many people were there after they took me out of the game. "I said to somebody, Wow, theres a lot of people here." The Cardinals totalled 26 runs while sweeping the Pirates to regain the Central lead at the start of a nine-game homestand. Theyve scored three runs in two games against the Mariners and leadoff man Matt Carpenter thought the unfamiliarity has definitely been a factor. "Weve faced the Pirates 100 times and we know exactly what A.J. Burnett has, we know what Francisco Liriano has, and those kinds of guys," Carpenter said. "Then we come in here and weve got these guys, and nobody knows anything about anybody." Now, St. Louis and Pittsburgh share the division lead once again. The Pirates topped the Cubs 2-1. "Weve got a chance to kind of control our own destiny," Carpenter said. "Hopefully at the end of this thing, well be happy where we are." The Cardinals mustered only three hits, including Carpenters league-leading 50th double in the eighth. He later scored on a wild pitch by Charlie Furbush. Franklin Gutierrez hit a two-run double in the fifth inning that ended St. Louis rookie Michael Wachas scoreless streak at 23 2-3 innings. Kendrys Morales hit his 22nd homer in eighth off Tyler Lyons to make it 3-0. The St. Louis hitters have been struggling all week, and they never got going against the 24-year-old Paxton (2-0), who limited them to a pair of singles. The first was by Wacha (3-1) in the third when Paxton came off the bag to field a tapper and then slipped and fell, losing his grip. Paxton struck out five and walked two. He won his major league debut a week ago against Tampa Bay, allowing an earned run in six innings. Danny Farquhar finished for his 14th save in 16 chances. Wacha struck out five in his seventh career start, but also walked four in five innings. Mariners pitchers were 0 for 20 with 13 strikeouts this year before Wacha walked Paxton on four pitches in the fifth to put runners on first and second with none out, setting up Gutierrezs double. "Hes trying to give me a free out, bunting the ball," Wacha said. "Its not acceptable, walking the pitcher. Anybody really. I wasnt really too excited about that." Paxton said it was his first at-bat in more than a decade. "I didnt really know what to do with the bat after I got walked," Paxton said. "I just kind of dropped it and then told the umpire when I was at second base I hadnt run the bases in about 11 years, gave him a little chuckle. "It was fun to be out there and do that. It was pretty cool." Seattle leadoff man Brad Miller was removed with a mild left hamstring strain after running out a sacrifice bunt in the fifth. Replacement Carlos Triunfel had a sacrifice fly in the ninth off Fernando Salas. NOTES: Yadier Molina, who threw out two runners attempting to steal in the same inning Friday, was the first Cardinals C to do that since manager Mike Matheny on May 1, 2001, at Florida. Matheny said he didnt remember the occasion, but added, "You dont normally get that many opportunities unless youre stinking, or else your pitchers just giving you no chance." ... Morales has five homers in the last 10 games after going 28 games without a long ball. Casey Hayward Chargers Jersey .

LOUIS -- Rookie Tavon Austin has missed another day of practice, lessening the odds hell be ready for the St.BOSTON -- Clay Buchholz feels like hes ready for the postsesason. He just wont have a perfect record when he gets there. Buchholz lost for the first time this season, and the AL East champion Boston Red Sox rested a couple of regulars while falling to Mark Buehrle and the Toronto Blue Jays, 4-2, on Saturday night. Having missed more than three months with a strained neck, Buchholz feels like his strength is where it was before the injury. He just needs to fine tune a few things. "I feel good. Movement on all the pitches is there," he said. "Its just the command and location and where to start it, which is sometimes hard to get better. The velocity is there and the body feels good." Buchholz (11-1) gave up two earned runs on six hits and two walks in six innings. He had pitched 11 scoreless innings in his previous two starts since coming off the disabled list. A day after the Red Sox clinched the division title, they lost for just the sixth time in 21 games. Manager John Farrell didnt start second baseman Dustin Pedroia and first baseman Mike Napoli, and used starter Ryan Dempster for an inning of relief. Buchholz was the first Boston pitcher to start a season 11-0 in his initial 14 starts since Roger Clemens went 13-0 in 1986. "I thought Clay was pretty sharp and pretty crisp for the time he was out on the mound tonight," Farrell said. "He was fighting to get back out for the seventh, but seeing the progression hes on, I think was a comfortable number of pitches for tonight." Buchholz broke into a slight grin when he was asked about how hard it is to go undefeated for an entire season. "It probably could have easily have happened sooner than now," he said. "The guys that play behind me all year have found ways to come back in situations where I came out of the game behind in the game." Bostons lead over Oakland dropped to 1 1/2 games for the ALs best record and home-field throughout the post-season. Dempster made his first relief appearance since 2007, working a scoreless eighth. Boston third baseman Will Middlebrooks shifted to first for the first time in his career. Jonny Gomes and David Ross each drove in a run for the Red Sox. Adam Linds RBI double highlighted a three-run fourth that carried the Blue Jays. Bueehrle (12-9) held Boston to one run for the third time in five starts that hes faced them this year. Craig Mager Chargers Jersey. He allowed five hits, striking out five without walking a batter. He reached 200 innings for the 13th straight season. "Wish it was in a better situation," Buehrle said of reaching the mark again. Manager John Gibbons was impressed by the left-handers season. "Steady Eddy," Gibbons said. "Doing what he has been doing his whole career. You get 25 Buehrles and you are probably gonna have a good year." Casey Janssen pitched the ninth for his 33rd save in 35 chances. Torontos Munenori Kawasaki was ejected by first base umpire Eric Cooper in the eighth after slamming his helmet when he was called out on a close play. The Blue Jays scored all three runs with two outs in the fourth after Brett Lawrie beat out a routine grounder to short for an infield hit. Lind followed with an RBI double, Rajai Davis added a run-scoring single and Moises Sierra scored from third on Buchholzs errant pickoff throw to first. Gomes RBI single cut it to 3-1 in the sixth. Ross run-scoring grounder sliced it to 3-2 in the seventh after Xander Bogaerts reached second on Lawries fielding error at third base. J.P. Arencibia snapped an 0-for-27 stretch with an RBI single off the Green Monster in the Toronto ninth. NOTES: Pedroia had started 151 of the teams initial 152 games.

MONTREAL -- Anthony Calvillo isnt sure where hell be when the Montreal Alouettes open training camp in June. Dave Schultz Flyers Jersey . He just knows that for the first time since 98 he wont be on the field in his teal-coloured No. 13 practice jersey throwing balls to S.J. Green, Jamel Richardson and the other receivers. The 41-year-old who rewrote the CFL record book for quarterbacks announced his retirement Tuesday following an illustrious 20-year career. Its an end Calvillo knew was coming when he missed the final 10 games of the regular season with a concussion. "My mind was pretty much made up at the end of the season that I wanted to retire," said Calvillo. "I went on holidays to think about it but I was 99 per cent sure. "In my mind Ive moved on. The process of being hurt helped me go through the transition. So when June comes around, I dont know where Ill be." Heisman Trophy winner Troy Smith, who got a crash course on Canadian football after signing with Montreal in August, is pegged as the new starter. Thats a position Calvillo held since 2000 after signing with the Alouettes as Tracy Hams understudy two years earlier. Calvillo leaves as pro footballs most prolific passer (79,816 yards) and the CFLs all-time leader in completions (5,892), attempts (9,437) and TD strikes (455). A spot in the Canadian Football Hall of Fame surely awaits. The five-time CFL all-star also holds records for completions in one game (44), most 300-yard contests (125) and 4,000-yard seasons (11). Calvillo also holds most Grey Cup game records, including passing yards (2,470). Calvillo led Montreal to eight Grey Cup appearances, winning in 2002, 2009 and 2010. Owner Robert Wetenhall called Calvillo a "good and decent man" who was "arguably one of the great players in the history of professional football." In a statement, CFL commissioner Mark Cohon called Calvillo "more than one of the greatest quarterbacks to ever play the game. He is one of the most remarkable people to ever grace our league." The Los Angeles native who has made Montreal his home wont be going far. Calvillo has a spot waiting for him on the Alouettes coaching staff, but he plans to take the summer off before looking at coaching in 2015. For now, he is working on two online courses to get the final credits he needs to complete the degree he started at Utah State University before he turned pro. He will also do a 180-hour internship in the Alouettes scouting department and front office for credit. He wants to finish his BA in general studies by April and bring his wife and two young daughters to Logan, Utah, for the graduation ceremony. Leaving due to injury was not how Calvillo expected to end his career but he found he wasnt enjoying the game or playing up to his own standards in his final season. Calvillo didnt play after suffering the second major concussion of his career on what looked like a routine hit by Saskatchewans Ricky Foley in a 24-21 loss on Aug. 17 in Regina. "The thing that stood out to me is that my tolerance to take a hit had gone down and the hit that caused it wasnt a hard hit," said Calvillo, now symptom-free. " That concerned me. "At the end of the day, I just didnt want to put my head at risk any more." Now, the Alouettes will see what life is like without the player who has long been the face of their franchise. "This organization has always put the right people in place, so I feel confident," Calvillo said. "To see what Troy Smith did in half a season, not knowing anything about this league, was very impressive." Jim Popp, who has been general manager since the team returned to Montreal in 1996, said the Alouettes got a taste of what life without Calvillo will be like during his injury. "Our locker room had to learn to function without Anthony," he said. "There was a real growing process for our veterans and our new players that were looking up to Anthony. "This is real, and weve got to take a step forward and depend on other people." Popp stepped in as head coach when Dan Hawkins was fired only five games into his first CFL season and is expected to remain in his dual role. But the team put out a release last week saying its still looking at head coaching candidates. Popp said Calvillo will likely begin as a quarterbacks or receivers coach in 2015. But Popp sees Calvillo being an offensive co-ordinator and head coach in the future. Calvillo was very emotional as he addressed the media and a large group of past and present Alouettes at his farewell news conference. Popp sobbed even more as he went over what the steady, six-foot-one quarterback meant to the organization. Calvillo was just 21 when he made his CFL debut with the Las Vegas Posse in 1994. He went to Hamilton the next season after the Posse folded but following three struggling campaigns with the Tiger-Cats, Calvillo joined the Alouettes in 1998. He was considering an offer from the Saskatchewan Roughriders but opted to sign with Montreal for the chance to learn from Ham. "The reason I did not sign with Saskatchewan is that I knew if I had another bad year that my career was over and I couldnt risk that," he said. "I wanted to take a step back and learn from an experienced quarterback." Injuries that forced Hams retirement put Calvillo into the starting lineup earlier than expected and he excelled from the outset. The winning seasons piled up, but it wasnt always easy. In 2007, he took the final five games of the season off to tend to his wife Alexia, who was diagnosed with B-cell lymphoma only a week after giving birth to their second daughter. Then in 2010, a cancerous lesion was found in Calvillos neck. Thankfully, the scare passed with successful surgery to remove his thyroid gland. Calvillo also endured criticism for not playing well in championship games. The Alouettes win in 2002 under coach Don Matthews was largely due to the clubs defence but the repeat championships in 2009-10 under Marc Trestman offered redemption. "I never gave up on myself," said Calvillo. "It was tough when you have spectacular regular seasons and then things dont work out for you in the playoffs, especially in championship games. "But I never doubted myself or quit. I refocused and got ready for the next year." Video messages from Trestman and Calvillos long time go-to receiver, Ben Cahoon, were played during the announcement. Guard Scott Flory said the Alouettes will have to learn to move on without Calvillo. "I got drafted in 1998 -- Cahoon went first and I was the next pick and we all showed up together," said the all-star guard. "When you have an opportunity to play with these amazing players, its just surreal. "You really appreciate what hes done. The legend will just grow." Andrew MacDonald Flyers Jersey . Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced Wednesday that the team would assign Swedish forward Elias Lindholm to his nations team for the upcoming tournament. Michael Raffl Jersey . Oaklands loss to Seattle clinched the ALs best record for the Red Sox with one day to spare in the regular season.

ORCHARD PARK, N. Martavis Bryant Steelers Jersey .Y. -- Buffalo Bills cornerback Ron Brooks and rookie receiver Marquise Goodwin are out indefinitely after they were hurt in a season-opening loss to New England. Coach Doug Marrone said Monday that Brooks will have surgery on Tuesday to repair a broken bone in his right foot. Marrone added Goodwin was already having surgery to repair a broken bone in his right hand. The initial prognosis is that both players injuries are not season-ending, Marrone said. Both were hurt in a 23-21 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. Brooks injury further depletes Buffalos defensive secondary, which is already missing starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore (broken left hand) and starting safety Jairus Byrd (feet). Brooks was listed as third cornerback. Goodwin is a third-round draft pick out of Texas.

Thats fine with Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, so long as that trend doesnt continue once the Winter Games open next week. "I was cheering the goal this time," said Bylsma, who will be switching hats in Sochi, where he will be coaching Miller on the U.S. team. "It did dawn on me as Sid was going in and he scores that goal." Crosby, Canadas captain, had a goal and assist in a pre-Olympic tuneup in which the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins (40-15-2) set a franchise record by reaching 40 wins in 57 games. That eclipsed the previous mark of 40 wins in 65 games in 1995-96. Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, Brian Gibbons and minor-league call-up Harry Zolnierczyk also scored in a game the Penguins overcame a 1-0 deficit. Drew Stafford scored for the NHLs worst team, and Miller finished with 29 saves. Buffalo (15-33-8) dropped to 4-9-4 in its past 17 and winless in its last eight home games (0-5-3). Thats the Sabres worst home stretch since opening the season 0-8-1. For Crosby, he scored his first goal in six games and also ended a two-game point drought. That it happened against Buffalo and Miller shouldnt come as a surprise. Crosby has at least a point in all 14 trips to Buffalo (9 goals and 13 assists). And he has been particularly sharp at beating Miller, including the gold-medal winning overtime goal in Canadas 3-2 victory at the Vancouver Games four years ago. "He made some big saves tonight," Crosby said in defence of Miller. "Cant blame him. He held his team in it. And we scored some nice goals." The performance didnt sit well with Miller, but he doesnt think it will carry over to the Olympics. "Its game-by-game. Stuff happens out there and you reset," Miller said. Sabres coach Ted Nolan had his goalies back. "That had nothing to do with Ryan tonight," Nolan said. "It was the guys in front of him. Our team, we need everyone. We had a couple of guys no-show tonight." That was evident on Crosbys goal, which came on the power play 2:08 into the seconnd period, and put the Penguins up 2-1. Arthur Moats Steelers Jersey. Immediately after Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Buffalos Brian Flynn in close, Crosby circled his own net and built up a head of steam by driving up the left wing. Accepting Matt Niskanens pass while crossing centre, Crosby didnt break stride in cutting between Flynn and Mike Weber. He then drove toward the net and snapped a shot just inside the top right corner. Neal joked that hes seen Crosby score goals like that so many times that he didnt even celebrate, but instead simply headed to the bench. Miller had no chance some 17 minutes later, when Malkin scored on the breakaway. Pouncing on Marcus Folignos turnover inside the Penguins blue line, Malkin streaked past flat-footed defender Jamie McBain. Driving in alone on Miller, he faked going right and went left to deposit the puck in the open side. Miller is one of the three U.S. goalies selected to play at Sochi, and the game against the Penguins was regarded his last chance to make a firsthand impression on Bylsma. Bylsma has yet to name his starter, and maintained that Millers performance on Wednesday would have no influence on his decision. Miller was coming off his worst outing of the season. He was benched after giving up five goals on 27 shots through two periods in a 7-1 loss at Colorado on Saturday. He allowed three goals on 28 shots through two periods before the floodgates opened in the third. Gibbons scored off a face off, and Neal on a transition break. "The first period we werent very sharp," Crosby said. "Yeah, we took a little bit of time to get going, but once we did, I felt like we did grab a lot of momentum there." NOTES: The Sabres played without D Tyler Myers, who hurt his right leg in a 3-2 loss to Edmonton on Monday. Coach Ted Nolan has not ruled out Myers from playing in their pre-Olympic break finale at Ottawa on Thursday. ... Zolnierczyk stepped into the lineup a day after being recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He replaced Taylor Pyatt (lower body), who was hurt in a 2-1 overtime win over Ottawa on Monday. ... The Penguins completed a three-game series sweep of the Sabres, and improved to 12-4 in their past 16 meetings.

Marrone added Goodwin was already having surgery to repair a broken bone in his right hand. The initial prognosis is that both players injuries are not season-ending, Marrone said. Both were hurt in a 23-21 loss to the Patriots on Sunday. Brooks injury further depletes Buffalos defensive secondary, which is already missing starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore (broken left hand) and starting safety Jairus Byrd (feet). Brooks was listed as third cornerback. Goodwin is a third-round draft pick out of Texas.

Thats fine with Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, so long as that trend doesnt continue once the Winter Games open next week. "I was cheering the goal this time," said Bylsma, who will be switching hats in Sochi, where he will be coaching Miller on the U.S. team. "It did dawn on me as Sid was going in and he scores that goal." Crosby, Canadas captain, had a goal and assist in a pre-Olympic tuneup in which the Eastern Conference-leading Penguins (40-15-2) set a franchise record by reaching 40 wins in 57 games. That eclipsed the previous mark of 40 wins in 65 games in 1995-96. Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, Brian Gibbons and minor-league call-up Harry Zolnierczyk also scored in a game the Penguins overcame a 1-0 deficit. Drew Stafford scored for the NHLs worst team, and Miller finished with 29 saves. Buffalo (15-33-8) dropped to 4-9-4 in its past 17 and winless in its last eight home games (0-5-3). Thats the Sabres worst home stretch since opening the season 0-8-1. For Crosby, he scored his first goal in six games and also ended a two-game point drought. That it happened against Buffalo and Miller shouldnt come as a surprise. Crosby has at least a point in all 14 trips to Buffalo (9 goals and 13 assists). And he has been particularly sharp at beating Miller, including the gold-medal winning overtime goal in Canadas 3-2 victory at the Vancouver Games four years ago. "He made some big saves tonight," Crosby said in defence of Miller. "Cant blame him. He held his team in it. And we scored some nice goals." The performance didnt sit well with Miller, but he doesnt think it will carry over to the Olympics. "Its game-by-game. Stuff happens out there and you reset," Miller said. Sabres coach Ted Nolan had his goalies back. "That had nothing to do with Ryan tonight," Nolan said. "It was the guys in front of him. Our team, we need everyone. We had a couple of guys no-show tonight." That was evident on Crosbys goal, which came on the power play 2:08 into the seconnd period, and put the Penguins up 2-1. Arthur Moats Steelers Jersey. Immediately after Marc-Andre Fleury stopped Buffalos Brian Flynn in close, Crosby circled his own net and built up a head of steam by driving up the left wing. Accepting Matt Niskanens pass while crossing centre, Crosby didnt break stride in cutting between Flynn and Mike Weber. He then drove toward the net and snapped a shot just inside the top right corner. Neal joked that hes seen Crosby score goals like that so many times that he didnt even celebrate, but instead simply headed to the bench. Miller had no chance some 17 minutes later, when Malkin scored on the breakaway. Pouncing on Marcus Folignos turnover inside the Penguins blue line, Malkin streaked past flat-footed defender Jamie McBain. Driving in alone on Miller, he faked going right and went left to deposit the puck in the open side. Miller is one of the three U.S. goalies selected to play at Sochi, and the game against the Penguins was regarded his last chance to make a firsthand impression on Bylsma. Bylsma has yet to name his starter, and maintained that Millers performance on Wednesday would have no influence on his decision. Miller was coming off his worst outing of the season. He was benched after giving up five goals on 27 shots through two periods in a 7-1 loss at Colorado on Saturday. He allowed three goals on 28 shots through two periods before the floodgates opened in the third. Gibbons scored off a face off, and Neal on a transition break. "The first period we werent very sharp," Crosby said. "Yeah, we took a little bit of time to get going, but once we did, I felt like we did grab a lot of momentum there." NOTES: The Sabres played without D Tyler Myers, who hurt his right leg in a 3-2 loss to Edmonton on Monday. Coach Ted Nolan has not ruled out Myers from playing in their pre-Olympic break finale at Ottawa on Thursday. ... Zolnierczyk stepped into the lineup a day after being recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He replaced Taylor Pyatt (lower body), who was hurt in a 2-1 overtime win over Ottawa on Monday. ... The Penguins completed a three-game series sweep of the Sabres, and improved to 12-4 in their past 16 meetings.

The Professor Ricky Ray has been putting on a clinic just about every time hes been on the field in 2013. Emmanuel Sanders Broncos Jersey . Im loving watching this guy go out there and nonchalantly dismantle defence after defence and effortlessly complete ball after ball after ball. Rays unmatched accuracy (77.2 percent completion rate and 21 touchdown passes to only two interceptions in 2013) is extremely rare. Ive called many of his games when hes torching defences and I cant emphasize it enough for fans to take notice and enjoy it while they can. Quarterbacks like Ray come around but every half century or so...rare indeed! Whats giving this pulse-less and pure passing quarterback a chance to succeed even more than usual is he is matched with a coach, Scott Milanovich, that gets it; he himself having been there before. Its like the perfect storm: a head coach that has played the position before equipped with a tremendous offensive scheme coupled with, in my opinion, the most accurate pure passer the CFL has ever seen!Know this, when you are on top of your game as a quarterback, theres nothing a defence can show you, throw at you, or do to you that you dont have an answer for offensively.Its a state or level we all try to achieve and get to. When you do, or if you do, you just hope that your physical skills are still at a premium level so you can maximize the knowledge you have. Thats when you are hitting on all cylinders and truly a general on the field of play. I try and explain it to people like this: when you are in that zone I just described, you are connecting all the dots before the ball is even snapped, meaning you already know where you are going with the football before the play starts. The formation, pre-snap motion, positioning of each and every defender and their reactions only verify what you already know. Its now just getting the ball in your hands and using your eyes in order to expand a hole for a receiver or move a defender just a bit more, and then you plant your back foot and - with great confidence, timing, and accuracy - you trust your eyes and pull the trigger! Ray does this more consistently than anyone else in the league, period! The video tells you as much, just about every play hes on the field; like the old saying goes, “The eye in the sky never lies.” You can see the prior preparation coming into play: the experience, the talent, and the recognition. When it does, now you are throwing with confidence and spotting the football. Pitching and catching! Another guy that comes to mind that is pure and as prepared as Ray is a guy named Peyton Manning. You see him connect the dots dont you? Well thats what Ray is doing, and hes doing it with only 20 seconds every play or half the time Manning gets! Impressive, I know! Now Im not saying that hes unstoppable, Im just telling you hes extremely rare. My good friend and colleague Gord Miller once told me, “Having a good quarterback does not guarantee that you are going to win, but not having one guarantees you wont.” Enjoy folks, because this guy is special and hes in that ZONE. The Argos have developed a really nice alternative to the three-time Grey Cup winner in Zach Collaros. Zach has showed us all that there are several ways to be successful at quarterback. Young, talented and extremely mobile are just a few of his positive attributes. Two other strengths are his creativity when the initial structure of a play breaks down and his resilience. You think this guys down and out and he gets up off the canvas and starts to dominate and find a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. The quarterbacking carousel and talent pool does not stop there for the Argonauts. We have had a chance to see Trevor Harris a little this season and got a glimpse of Mitchell Gale as well. Both these young quarterbacks have the skill set to be successful in this league. Their hurdles and struggles are finding the opportunity to prove it. The Eastern Final between the Argos and Hamilton Tiger-Cats is surprisingly rare. In fact, its the first time since 1986. But thats not as rare as the Argos Ricky Ray. Go down to the Rogers Centre this Sunday, buy a ticket and watch this guy connect the dots! Steve Atwater Broncos Jersey .ca NHL Power Rankings for the second straight week, ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Colorado Avalanche. Ty Sambrailo Broncos Jersey . Giroud, who wasnt in the starting lineup for two matches after allegations about his private life and a decline in form, scored twice in the first half. Tomas Rosickys chip made it 3-0 before half time at Emirates Stadium, while defender Laurent Koscielny scored an unmarked header in the second half. http://www.broncosproauthentic.com/Black-Friday-Derek-Wolfe-Jersey/ . -- Catcher Brett Hayes has agreed to a $630,000, one-year contract with the Kansas City Royals, avoiding salary arbitration.FIVE QUICK NBA THOUGHTS 1. TORONTO RAPTORS: They lose on the road by five to Miami and by seven at Indiana. It just has a different feel to it. Even though they lost, Im impressed with their improvement and the way theyre playing right now. Good role definition and team play are evident. Have they arrived? No, far from it, but they are headed in the proper direction. Its a lot more difficult to play when folks have expectations for you and how you handle them on a daily basis. If they can become consistent in their production then theyll be fine. Greivis Vasquez has to start playing a lot better and with consistency off the bench for them. Hes the guy that can make a difference for them with the second unit if he can pick it up a few notches. 2. ROY HIBBERT (Pacers): We talk so much about his defence, shot blocking and rebounding that at times we lose sight of how much hes improved. Hes always been a nifty passer back to his days at Georgetown but the thing thats really impressed me has been his steady growth as a post player. His footwork is exceptional and he can score with either hand in the lane and is fluid with his skills. He gets great position in the lane and his confidence as an offensive player is at an all-time high. 3. LUOL DENG TRADE: I like this trade for the Bulls. Theyre not going anywhere with the loss of Derrick Rose and had to move on from this group. Deng was a terrific player for them yet was going to cost too much for them in the free-agent sweepstakes. They save close to $20 million with this transaction andd it was time to move on and begin the process of a new look in Chicago. Phil Taylor Broncos Jersey. This is the business side of sports that isnt pleasant when you see a wonderful guy who was a very good player get moved for economics yet in this cold-hearted business, it was the right thing to do long term for them. 4. KEVIN DURANT (Thunder): I know his team lost on Tuesday night to the Jazz and that isnt a pleasant thing but how can you not be impressed with the fact that he drops 48 points in the game? Its been challenging for him and his team without Russell Westbrook yet we get to see just how special Durant is when he has to do even more. Hes truly the second-best player in the game today and his offensive skill set is off the charts. Truly a joy to watch. Great competitor and a winner. 5. GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS: Theyre on a roll with 10 wins in a row and Im thrilled for their loyal/rabid fan base. If I could put a finger on it the one guy who makes such a huge difference on their team is Andre Iguodala. He gives them a perimeter defensive stopper, hes an unselfish player who gladly gives the ball up to teammates and has wonderful versatility in his game. He plays the game the right way and has really allowed the other aspects of this roster to settle into their roles. Coach Mark Jackson has a guy that he can trust to do all the little things that win games for you and do it at a high level. I guess the word Glue Guy comes to mind when I watch their team. Any way you want to say it - hes made a huge difference in their team.

As I was getting ready to write this blog, I was all set to lead with Steven Stamkos. The Lightning had won seven of their last eight games (before Mondays loss to Boston) and, in those eight games, Stamkos had nine goals and four assists, giving him 23 points for the season, moving into a tie with Sidney Crosby for the league scoring lead. Then, Stamkos crashed into the Tampa Bay net while backchecking (theres a lesson for you high-scoring kids out there -- never back-check) and suffered what Aaron Ward reported as a broken tibia. There are different types of breaks, so that will determine recovery time, but the injury is serious enough that Stamkos availability to Team Canada for the Sochi Olympics is in doubt. Moreover, the Lightning now have to somehow manage without their MVP candidate for at least the next few months. Down the middle, they still have Valtteri Filppula and Tyler Johnson, who have some offensive pedigree, if not nearly at Stamkos level, but losing such a high-percentage finisher is going to be impossible to replace. Since the start of the 2009-2010 season Stamkos has scored on 18.3% of his shots, the best among players with at least 100 goals in that span. Second-best is Sidney Crosby, at 15.8%. The likely effect of losing Stamkos, though, is that its going to be more difficult for Martin St. Louis to rack up assists, without his top triggerman, so the Lightning will have to get more from their supporting cast. Teddy Purcell, Alex Killorn, Ryan Malone and Brett Connolly will need to contribute more if the Lightning are to have any hope of holding the fort in Stamkos absence. If Stamkos is going to be out long-term, maybe that could provide the impetus for the Lightning to promote Nikita Kucherov from the AHL. Theyve called up J.T. Brown, but Kucherov has higher upside. A 20-year-old right winger, he was a second-round pick in 2011 and has started his pro career on fire with 12 goals and 22 points in 13 games. Hes not Stamkos, but if generating offence is a challenge, Kucherov might be able to help. 2. Bruins rookie D Torey Krug burst onto the scene in last years playoffs, scoring four goals in his first five postseason games, before settling down and managing one assist over his last 10 games. This year, the Bruins have installed Krug at the point on their top power play unit and hes producing, with six of his 10 points coming with the man advantage. While hes scored on 16.7% of his shots, which is not sustainable for a defenceman, Krug is generating 2.25 shots on goal per game, putting him in the top 20 (tied with Chara for 17th) among defencemen to have played at least 10 games this season, an indication that in his current role, Krug should continue to provide offence. 3. In his last 10 games, Devils RW Jaromir Jagr has 10 points, all while skating for a Devils team that offers precious little offensive support. D Marek Zidlicky is the only other Devil with more than seven points on the season -- thats 17 games. Certainly, Patrik Elias would be considered a reliable offensive performer, but hes only played 10 games (and has seven points), but Travis Zajac, Damien Brunner, Michael Ryder, Adam Henrique and Andrei Loktionov are the ones being counted on to generate offence, so its a real credit to Jagr that hes been this productive. Jagr has also had strong puck possession numbers, but is only generating 2.00 shots on goal per game, his fewest since his rookie season, 1990-1991. 4. The Edmonton Oilers, obviously feeling desperate, agreed to a deal with G Ilya Bryzgalov over the weekend. In the 2011-2012 and 2012-2013 seasons, there were 44 goaltenders to play at least 40 games. Bryzgalov ranked 36th among them with a .905 save percentage. Devan Dubnyk, incidentally, ranked 16th with a .917 save percentage. Expanding the view, to include Bryzgalovs years in Phoenix, there were 61 goalies to play at least 100 games between 2007-2008 and 2012-2013 and Bryzgalov ranked 20th with a .914 save percentage, as well as ranking fourth with 365 games played. (Dubnyk 26th on that list, .913) Obviously, Dubnyk is off to a horrendous start this year and no team can win when their starting goaltender has an .876 save percentage, so if Bryzgalov can upgrade the position, thats great. At the same time, the Oilers are 4-13-2, 14 points out of a playoff spot in the Western Conference. How impossibly great would Bryzgalov have to be in order to make the Oilers competitive this season? And how likely is it that he can be that great, given his play over the last two seasons? 5. The Rangers got off to a slow start this year, not least of all because their first nine games were on the road, but also because captain Ryan Callahan was injured. Also injured, as he recovered from shoulder surgery, was LW Carl Hagelin and Hagelin has been an integral part of the Rangers resurgence, contributing four goals and eight points in seven games. Not unlike Jagr, Hagelin has good possession stats, but has only generated 2.00 shots on goal per game, well below last years 2.75 per game, so hes had to rely on a high on-ice shooting percentage. It suggests that regression is coming, but no one is expecting Hagelin to score a point-per-game over the long haul anyway. But, he can be a quality second-line scoring winger and that Rangers are a better team with him in the lineup. 6. Ducks G Frederik Andersen is forcing Anaheim into a decision as Viktor Fasth is nearing a return from injury. Andersen has a 1.41 goals against average and .952 save percentage in his first six games, making it impossible to view him as a temporary fill-in who can be easily jettisoned to the AHL. Andersen dominated the Swedish Elite League in 2011-2012, posting a 1.67 goals against average and .941 save percentage in 39 games, then had a 2.19 goals against average and .929 save percentage in 47 AHL games last season, so hes stopped the puck everywhere hes been and his play could make it much easier for the Ducks to shop Jonas Hiller, the veteran who will be a free agent at seasons end, and go forward with Andersen and Fasth. 7. Blue Jackets C Ryan Johansen is coming off the first three-point game of his career, Saturday against the Islanders, but that only put an exclamation point on his improved play in his third season. In the last 11 games, Johansen has tallied 10 points (5 G, 5 A) and has played at least 18 minutes in nine of those games. Hes playing harder minutes and having a reasonable amount of success when it comes to puck possession. In fact, with a little better finish from his linemates (R.J. Umberger and a rotating cast of wingers on the other side), his offensive production could be even better. 8. Kings RW Tyler Toffoli had every right to be disappointed when he didnt make the team out of training camp. After scoring 11 points in 22 (regular season plus playoff) games in a late-season audition as first-year pro, Toffoli looked like a good bet to secure a spot on the second line this season. But, the roster numbers being what they were, the Kings decided to send Toffoli to the AHL rather than expose other forwards to waivers, and Toffoli put up seven goals and a dozen points in 10 AHL games before Kings RW Jeff Carter suffered a foot injury, opening the door for Toffolis promotion. Since joining the Kings, Toffoli has skated with C Mike Richards and LW Dwight King, putting up five points (2 G, 3 A) in three games and is playing dramatically more (17:27 ATOI) than he did when called up last season (11:59 ATOI). If Toffoli continues to produce, giving the Kings a potent second line, its hard to imagine they wont find a way to keep him around this time. 9. Penguins C Sidney Crosby (1 G, 5 A in last 9 GP) has run into a period of merely decent production, following a sizzling start (7 G, 10 A in 8 GP) and Saturdays loss at St. Louis -- obviously a tough matchup -- resulted in Crosbys lowest Corsi of the season. Theres no need for panic, so long as Crosby is healthy, but if production doesnt change, then its possible that linemates will, so that bears watching. Certainly Chris Kunitz and Pascal Dupuis have much higher value when they are playing regularly with No. 87. 10. Jets C Bryan Little has gone up and down, particularly in terms of goal production, throughout his career and this season appears to be an up season in that regard as he has scored 10 goals in 19 games (after scoring seven goals in 48 games last season). Hes scoring on a career-high 24.4% of his shots this year, which wont continue, but Little is generating shots. His current rate, 2.16 shots on goal per game, is the third-best of his career, just behind seasons in which he tallied 2.18 and 2.19 shots per game. In those two seasons, Little finished with 31 and 24 goals, respectively. SMID TRADE When the Edmonton Oilers traded Ladislav Smid to the Calgary Flames, they cleared out a contract that has three years (after the current season) remaining with a cap hit of $3.5-million per season. While the move could have ostensibly been made to bring in Bryzgalov, the Oilers arent making that kind of financial commitment to the flighty goaltender, so the cap savings can be used for other moves. Smid played tough minutes for the Oilers, starting most of his shifts in the defensive zone, but he was also taking on a lesser role this season, playing fewer than 18 minutes per game after averaging more than 20 minutes per game over the previous three seasons. Hes not going to score much, his career-high is 15 points, but Smid plays a physical game and can kill penalties. The Flames have three defencemen (Chris Butler, Kris Russell and Derek Smith) set to be unrestricted free agents at seasons end, so Smid gives the Flames some roster insurance moving forward. Smid also has a history with Flames president Brian Burke who, as GM of the Anaheim Ducks, traded Smid to Edmonton in order to acquire Chris Pronger. 27-year-old Smid has a good opportunity to play 20-plus minutes per game for the Flames, who could use a little more bite on the blueline. The Flames also got G Olivier Roy as part of the deal. Roy, 22, was a fifth-round pick in 2009 and while hes had ECHL success early in his pro career, he hasnt been as strong in the AHL, posting a .906 save percentage in 32 AHL games. Going the other way, the Oilers get G Laurent Brossoit, a 20-year-old who was a sixth-round pick in 2011. The first-year pro has split his starts between the ECHL and AHL this year, but he did backstop the Edmonton Oil Kings to a WHL Championship and Memorial Cup berth in 2011-2012, so there may be higher hopes for Brossoits potential than Roys at this point. The Oilers also received LW/C Roman Horak, a 22-year-old who has 18 points in 82 career NHL games. He has decent size, can skate and could develop into a solid checking forward. He also has 41 points in 86 career AHL games. FIRST NHL GAMES Adam Almquist, D, Detroit - A seventh-round pick of the Red Wings in 2009, Almquist is an undersized but mobile blueliner who had 38 points in 81 career AHL games before getting called up due to injuries (Jonathan Ericsson, Brendan Smith) on the Detroit blueline. Chad Billins, D, Calgary - Another smallish defenceman, who had 37 points in 76 games with Grand Rapids of the AHL last season after a four-year career at Ferris State, Billins had six goals and eight points in 12 games for AHL Abbotsford this season to earn a promotion. He contributed two assists in two games for the Flames, though he did take a beating in the possession game. Taylor Fedun, D, Edmonton - The 25-year-old, who played four years at Princeton, missed the entire 2011-2012 season after suffering a broken femur in a preseason game. He rebounded wit ha strong season for Oklahoma City last year and has 31 points in 82 career AHL games. He scored goals in each of his first two games for the Oilers. Lindey Vey, C, Los Angeles - Playmaking forward has steadily improved since he was a fourth-round pick in 2009. He scored 43 points in 74 AHL games two years ago, as a rookie pro, then put up 67 points in 74 games last season before opening this year with 11 points in 10 games, earning a recall when Jarret Stoll was injured. He had one assist in his first two games with the Kings, though his possession stats werent ideal. Marek Mazanec, G, Nashville - A sixth-round pick in 2012, the Czech goaltender was pressed into service when the Predators pulled starter Carter Hutton after Hutton had allowed three goals on eight shots, in just 8:23 at Winnipeg. Mazanec allowed two goals in the remaining 51:37. He doesnt figure to be ready for much NHL duty right now, but does have a 1.97 goals against average and .933 save percentage in five AHL games this year.
