SAN JOSE, Calif. Arthur Brown Jersey . -- Joe Thornton scored the lone shootout goal in the fifth round, and Alex Stalock stopped all five tries as the San Jose Sharks overcame a two-goal deficit to beat the Dallas Stars 3-2 on Saturday night. Joe Pavelski and Jason Demers scored in regulation for the Sharks, who had lost six of eight before rallying for this win. Stalock made 44 saves and got the win in his first career shootout. Ray Whitney and Antoine Roussel scored for the Stars, who were in position to win their third straight game but couldnt hold a third-period lead. Kari Lehtonen made 37 saves. After neither team scored in the first four rounds, Thornton beat Lehtonen for his second shootout goal in as many tries this season. Stalock sealed the win when he stopped Whitney. After a lacklustre start that led to a 2-0 deficit, the Sharks fought back and tied the game early in the third period shortly after failing to convert on the power play. Thornton did a good job keeping the puck in the zone at the blue line and fed Pavelski, who skated from the boards to the middle and beat Lehtonen with a backhand for his 14th goal. That is where the game stood until the shootout. Stalock got his first career start at home in place of Antti Niemi, who got a night off after allowing four goals in a loss at Los Angeles on Thursday night. Stalock had four road starts this season, mostly playing on the back end of back-to-backs. He was shaky at times as the Sharks fell behind 2-0 early in the second period. It is the second straight game and fifth this month that San Jose has allowed the first two goals after not doing it in the first two months. Whitney, who played on the original Sharks team in 1991-92, capitalized on a bad clearing attempt by San Jose when he sent a backhand from the circle through Brad Stuarts legs and over Stalocks shoulder to give him points in 10 straight games against his former team. Each team failed on a pair of power-play chances, and that is where the game stood after the first period. But Dallas struck again early in the second on a delayed penalty when Alex Goligoskis centring pass from a bad angle deflected off Roussel and into the net. The Stars nearly added another but referee Mike Leggo blew his whistle even though the puck was loose in the crease, negating a potential goal by Colton Sceviour. The Sharks picked up their play after that and got on the board midway through the second when Tyler Kennedy fed a trailing Demers, who beat Lehtonen with a one-timer to end a 44-game goalless streak. NOTES: Dallas D Sergei Gonchar left the game in the second period with an upper-body injury. ... The Sharks will be without rookie F Tomas Hertl for at least a month after he was hurt in a knee-on-knee collision with Los Angeles Dustin Brown on Thursday. ... F Vern Fiddler (upper body) was activated from IR to take the place of injured D Aaron Rome (lower body). ... San Jose had its 150th consecutive regular-season sellout.

SEOUL, South Korea -- Already a two-time winner this year, Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia reached the Korea Open quarterfinals by beating wild card Lee Ye-ra of South Korea 6-4, 6-1 on Wednesday. Michael Burton Jersey . Pavlyuchenkova, who won her fourth and fifth career titles in April in Monterrey and Estoril, will line up against Irina-Camelia Begu of Romania, who defeated sixth-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany 6-4, 6-0. The eighth-seeded Annika Beck of Germany also fell, to Vera Dushevina of Russia 6-3, 7-5. Also through were Lara Arruabarrena of Spain, into her first quarterfinals since February, and Francesca Schiavone of Italy, who last made the last eight on Birmingham grass in June. Travis Swanson Lions Jersey . Randy Foye added 17 for a Nuggets team that was missing J.J. Hickson, who suffered torn ligament in his right knee on Friday. Wilson Chandler also didnt play (strained left hip) and Jan Vesely didnt return after bruising his rib cage late in the third quarter. Matt Prater Jersey . U.S. District Judge Anita Brody says she fears the fund may not be large enough to cover up to 20,000 retired players for 65 years. Lawyers have given her more data to weigh since she rejected the deal on a preliminary basis in January.PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A lot of scenarios ran through Terrell Suggs head when the Baltimore linebacker prepared to face the Pittsburgh Steelers.Having Ben Roethlisberger throw six touchdown passes was not among them. The Pittsburgh quarterback put up half-a-dozen scores the week before against Indianapolis. No way he was going to do it again, right? That never happens.Never, at least, until now.Roethlisberger set an NFL record for touchdown passes in consecutive games, hanging six more on the Ravens in a testy but surprisingly easy 43-23 victory Sunday night.Roethlisberger broke the record for touchdown passes in consecutive games of 11 set by Tom Flores for Oakland in the AFL in 1963 and matched by New Englands Tom Brady in 2007.You could have never sold me that during the week, even though he did it last week, Suggs said. But he had a hell of a game, and thats a reflection on us all. You have to stop him in some certain situations.Baltimore (5-4) didnt really come close.Bolstered by a pregame pep talk from Hall of Fame defensive lineman Joe Greene, whose No. 75 was retired at halftime, and a throwback performance from 36-year-old linebacker James Harrison, the Steelers (6-3) ended a pivotal three-game homestand with arguably their most complete victory of a suddenly promising season.Antonio Brown caught 10 passes for 138 yards and a score. Rookie Martavis Bryant hauled in two scoring receptions and has five touchdowns in three games after spending the first six weeks of the season on the inactive list.Everybody has to wait for their opportunity, Bryant said. Its just when the opportunity presents itself whether you take advantage of it or not.Joe Flacco passed for 303 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, but was sacked four times as the Ravens were undone by a sloppy second quarter. A fumble by Lorenzo Taliaferro and an ill-advised throw by Flacco helped start a 22-point Pittsburgh run to end the first half.We set them up with two scoring situations, Baltimore coach John Harbaugh said. When youu put guys in that part of the field, they are going to have a chance to make some big plays. Cassius Vaughn Jersey. .Roethlisbergers numbers werent the only thing eye-popping as Pittsburgh topped 30 points for a third straight game for only the fourth time in franchise history. Some other takeaways in a rare blowout in a series where dramatic finishes are the norm:PEP TALK: The Steelers received a welcome pregame boost from Greene.He talked about Steeler football, coming in and whipping somebodys butt, Pittsburgh cornerback Brice McCain said.ROUGHING IT: The teams combined for 17 penalties for 175 yards, including a handful of personal fouls. Suggs drew a flag for diving at Pittsburgh running back LeGarrette Blounts knees in the second quarter, with teammate Elvis Dumervil getting his own personal fouls minutes later for slapping Pittsburghs LeVeon Bell.I think it was traditional Ravens-Steelers, Suggs said. Sometimes, you just play football, but sometimes things get a little excessive.FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH: Yes, that really was Harrison sacking Flacco twice and spending most of the game in the Baltimore backfield. Heady territory for a guy that was retired two months ago. Harrison now has four sacks in his last two games, or more than he had all of last season while playing in Cincinnati.I am old and slow, Harrison said. I got God doing most of the work.LONG ROAD: The Ravens find themselves in last place in the AFC North with two losses to first-place Cincinnati and one to the Steelers.We dont control our own destiny now, so we have to go out there and get a win the next time out, Baltimore wide receiver Torrey Smith said. We need one and have to get it.OUCH: The Steelers lost safety Troy Polamalu with a sprained left knee in the second quarter. Polamalu hobbled off the field quickly and returned for one play before heading to the locker room. Pittsburgh rookie linebacker Ryan Shazier left in the second quarter with a right ankle injury.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

FUKUOKA, Japan - Yuzuru Hanyu of Japan beat three-time world champion Patrick Chan of Canada with a record score to lead the short program at the Grand Prix Final on Thursday. Eugene Monroe Jersey . Skating to "Parisian Walkways," Hanyu opened with a quad toe-loop and hit all his other jumps to the delight of a sellout crowd at Marine Messe. His 99.84 points surpassed the previous high of 98.52 by Chan at the Trophee Bompard last month. "I was surprised when I saw the score," Hanyu said. "All my jumps were very good. I lost a bit of concentration near the end and need to improve that but now I have to focus on the free skate." Chan hit his opening quad toe-loop, triple toe-loop combination but touched the ice on the landing of his triple axel and doubled a planned triple lutz to finish with 87.47. "Im not super happy with how I skated," Chan said. "When you achieve close to perfection like I did in Paris its hard to do it again. Tomorrow is a new day and the long program is where its won and where its lost so well see." Nobunari Oda, a late substitute for injured Japanese compatriot Daisuke Takahashi, finished third with 80.94. Mao Asada led after the womens short program with 72.36 points despite under-rotating her opening triple axel. "The judges saw it as under-rotated but I personally felt good about it," Asada said. "So I wont be worried about it going into the long program." Adelina Sotnikova, one of four Russian skaters in the field, was second with 68.38 followed by Ashley Wagner of the United States who had 68.14. The GP Final is the first and only event where most of the worlds top skaters will meet before the Sochi Olympics. The mens free skate and the ice dance short program are scheduled for Friday. Benjamin Watson Ravens Jersey .

ANTWERP, Belgium -- Olympic champion Kohei Uchimura won a record fourth all-around world championship beating Japanese compatriot Ryohei Kato in a final that had a sense of inevitability from the start on Thursday. A.Q. Shipley Jersey . Uchimura opened with the best floor exercise of the six top qualifiers, and was in command the rest of the way. He mixed strength, poise and elegance in every discipline, setting himself apart from all gymnasts and reinforcing his reputation as the greatest in the history of the sport. "I always do my own things," Uchimura said. "I dont think about rivals." Such is his mastery that he doesnt have to. Even though Uchimura already held the mens record for all-around world titles, he still shared it overall with retired womens great Svetlana Khorkina of Russia, who also won three. And at 24, he can continue to dominate for years to come. "I want to continue until Tokyo 2020," he said of the Olympic Games his nation will stage. German veteran Fabian Hambuechen, the bronze medallist , has competed against him for years and has no doubt he is the greatest. "Yeah, sure," he said in awe. "He has no weak event." Uchimura bore testimony to that, finishing in the top three of each of the six events. "He is just like in a tunnel. Doing his thing. Not being nervous at all, and just concentrating on his routines. That is very special," Hambuechen said. Uchimura also qualified for the weekend floor exercise, high bar and parallel bar finals. In the contest for the other medals, Sam Mikulak of the U.S. made a decisive error late in his high bar routine and instead of challenging for silver he ended up sixth. "That is gymnastics. One second youre on. One second you are off. Its fine," he said. Hambuechen started with a weak pommel horse routine, but his evening-long chase ended with a great floor exercise and the bronze. Uchimura finished with 91.990 points, almost a massive two points ahead of Kato, who had 90.032. Hambuechen finished with 89.332. Britains Max Whitlock was fourth with 89.031. A difference in style was immediately visible on the opening floor exercise when it still looked like a U.S-Japanese fight for gold. Mikulak was smiling broadly, pumping his fists and acknowledging the crowd; Uchimura left the floor seemingly subdued, giving a small nod and a handshake to his coach. It is this kind of serenity, this inner resolve, that has set Uchimura apart. At the end of the evening though, after he landed from the high bar, Uchimura bowed, offered a wide grin and raised his fists, as if he had finally landed back on earth. Uchimura has been untouchable since winning the silver medal at the Beijing Olympics. And, if his performance at the worlds is any preview, that will last. "He does what he does. Year after year, he goes out, hits his routines, has that strong composure," Mikulak said. Uchimura began gymnastics when he was three, starting in a gym his father built in the family home in Nagasaki. As a teen, Uchimura looked up to Naoya Tsukahara, son of Japanese icon Mitsuo Tsukahara. So when he was 15, Uchimura left home to train at Tsukaharas gym in Tokyo. Soon after, his international career started and he has not looked back. "I would definitely say he is the greatest," said Mikulak. "Four world championships and Olympic champion. So, he is definitely stacking in all the medals. Kohei is the man everybody is coming after." T.Y. Hilton Colts Jersey .B. -- Christophe Boivin forced extra time then scored again in a shootout to lift the Acadie-Bathurst Titan to a 4-3 win over the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the lone Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game Thursday. Anthony Castonzo Jersey . Djokovic beat Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland 6-1, 6-4, while Federer defeated Del Potro of Argentina 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 Friday. Top-seeded Rafael Nadal also moved into the semifinals with a 6-4, 6-1 victory over Richard Gasquet of France and will next play either defending champion David Ferrer or Tomas Berdych.DETROIT - The Minnesota Wilds hard work eventually paid off for a key victory. Matt Moulsons goal at 2:15 of overtime gave the Wild a 4-3 come-from-behind win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night. The Wild trailed 2-0 after the first period despite outplaying the Red Wings and outshooting them 12-6. "I was really impressed at the way they were able to stick with it," Minnesota coach Mike Yeo said. "Obviously, theres a tendency to get frustrated and go away from our game. But they stuck with it. Moulson tipped in a pass from defenceman Jonas Brodin — who was along the right wing boards — for Moulsons 21st goal and the game winner. "He (Brodin) showed great patience. He kind of looked over and made eye contact with me," Moulson said. "I went to the net. He couldnt have put it in a better place." The Wild lost to the Red Wings 3-2 on Saturday afternoon in St. Paul. Both teams are in the seventh playoff spot in tight races their respective conferences. Charlie Coyle had a goal and an assist and Jason Pominville and Zach Parise also scored for Minnesota. Mikko Koivu had two assists and Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 13 shots. "It was frustrating being down 2-0 and how good we were playing," Parise said. "But we thought we were doing some really good things." Gustav Nyquist scored twice to extend his goal-scoring streak to five games, and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit. Jimmy Howard made 21 saves. "I dont think we were skating toward the middle and putting pressure on their D," Nyquist said. "They could break out pretty fast I thought. So that was an issue, which is whhy we didnt get enough zone time in their zone. Griff Whalen Colts Jersey. We werent skating good enough, I thought." Tatar tied it 3-3 with 8:17 remaining in the third with a shot from the right circle off the rush. It was his 16th goal. Coyles goal 4:33 into the third period tied the game at 2. He pushed the puck into an empty net off a goal-mouth scramble. It was Coyles ninth goal of the season and second in two games. Parise gave the Wild the lead just 1:45 later when he poked one past Howard for his 24th goal. Pominvilles power-play goal with 8:03 left in the second period put Minnesota on the scoreboard and made it 2-1. His 27th goal of the season came on a one-time slap shot from the high slot area. The goal was scored only 10 seconds after Red Wings defenceman Kyle Quincey went off for interference. Detroits Daniel Alfredsson hit the post with 8:30 left in the second period. Nyquist scored twice in the first period to give Detroit its 2-0 lead. His first goal came on the power play with 6:15 left in the opening period. He put in a rebound from the left circle. His second, and 23rd of the season, was the result of a breakaway. He made a move and slid a backhand shot past Bryzgalov. It was Nyquists seventh goal in five games. He has a NHL-leading 18 goal since Jan. 20. NOTE: Detroit C Joakim Andersson returned after missing six games with a broken foot. ...

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Even the lopsided ones come with last-inning frights for the Cincinnati Reds. Leonard Hankerson Patriots Jersey . Devin Mesoraco homered and drove in three runs, and Mike Leake pitched into the seventh inning and doubled home a run, leading the Reds to a 9-5 victory on Tuesday night that ended their six-game losing streak against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Reds held on in the ninth, needing their closer to finish off only their third win in the last 11 games. They are 17-33 since the All-Star break, sliding out of contention. "The good thing was we stayed resilient," manager Bryan Price said. The Cardinals lost for only the second time in 11 games but maintained their 4 1/2-game lead over Pittsburgh in the NL Central. St. Louis is 10-4 against the Reds and 40-25 overall in the division. Leake (11-11) was coming off his worst start of the season, giving up a season-high seven runs and three homers during a 9-7 loss in Baltimore last Thursday. Against the Cardinals, Leake allowed three runs and eight hits. He also doubled home a run in the fourth off Michael Wacha (5-6) for a 3-1 lead. His fifth double of the season was his 68th career hit, the most by any pitcher in the majors since his debut in 2010. Aroldis Chapman relieved with two on and two outs in the ninth and fanned Mark Ellis on a 101 mph fastball to end it, getting his 31st save in 33 chances. Mesoraco hit his 23rd homer in the first inning, a two-run shot. He also doubled home a run in the fifth as Cincinnati scored four times, knocking Wacha out of the game. "Thats the first time Ive faced Wacha, and I wasnt quite sure what to expect," Mesoraco said. "On 3-2 he threw me a curveball in the middle of the plate. I wasnt sure it was going to be a home run, but the ball was carrying tonight." Wacha made his second start since returning from a shoulder problem that had sidelined him since mid-June and gave up six hits, six runs and three walks. Down 7-1, the Cardinals sent nine batters to the plate in the seventh inning. Tony Cruz and Jon Jay had RBI singles, and Jumbo Diaz walked Jhonny Peralta with the bases loaded, cutting it to 7-4. First baseman Brayan Pena made a diving stop of A.J. Pierzynskis line drive to end the rally. "We had some diving plays," Leake said. "This was one of the best games weve played so far." Chris Heiseys two-run single in the eighth let Cincinnati pull away. STAR PLAY Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong saved a run in the fourth when he sprinted into right field and made an over-the-shoulder catch of Billy Hamiltons fly, holding onto the ball as he tumbled on the ground. MESORACO AND BENCH Mesoraco has hit 22 of his 23 homers while catching, the most by a Reds catcher since Johnny Bench hit 23 in 1980. His other homer came as a designated hitter. STATS Wong extended his hitting streak to six games. ... Wacha allowed five earned runs for the first time this season. ... RHP Sam Tuivailala made his big league debut and gave up two runs and retired two batters. ... Xavier Scruggs got his first career hit. ... Reds SS Zack Cozart snapped an 0 for 16 slump. ... It was the first time this season that the Reds won a game when they allowed 14 hits. TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: Manager Mike Matheny is gradually increasing Wachas pitch counts. Matheny says getting him back is "like getting a new player" for down the stretch. He threw 70 pitches on Tuesday, 44 for strikes. Reds: Starter Dylan Axelrod is likely done for the season with a strained right oblique, sustained on his seventh pitch Monday night. ... 1B Joey Votto took ground balls for a second straight day on Tuesday. The Reds are trying to get him ready to play the final week of the season. He has been on the disabled list since July 8 with strained muscles above his left knee. UP NEXT Cardinals: St. Louis is 10-4 against the Reds this season. John Lackey (13-9) starts the third of their four-game series on Wednesday. Reds: Alfredo Simon (13-10) is 1-7 with a 5.27 ERA in 10 starts since his first All-Star game. Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey .That sight softened the blow of what ended up as a 4-3 shootout loss to the Colorado Avalanche on Thursday night.Knowing their teammate was fine after a scary headfirst fall in the opening minute of the game helped calm the Maple Leafs. Brandon LaFell Patriots Jersey . -- Despite being only two games above .My thumb is up to Saturdays First Star. Ill pick one every week here and this week, its James Reimer. It probably wasn’t James Reimer after two periods, but it certainly was after three periods, as his Toronto Maple Leafs edged the Chicago Blackhawks 3-2. Forty minutes into the game, Reimer had made 19 saves. In the final period, he stopped the puck 26 times for a 45-save performance in a game that could actually be called “stirring. That’s an adjective that doesn’t often apply to a game at Air Canada Centre, for a variety of reasons - the home team, the visiting team, the atmosphere or all of the above. This time, they all added up to an exciting night and Reimer stood tall as the reason the Leafs won and as a reminder of why he’s still a Leaf. Surely, there have been times the Leafs have considered trading him, and times he wished for that, but for every time that seemed like a good idea, there’s a time like last night. -- My thumb is down too injuries. Irving Fryar Jersey. ...well, that goes without saying, so lets say Thumbs down to too many injuries. How many is too many? Count up the number of injuries plaguing the Columbus Blue Jackets and thats too many. Theyre playing without a Vezina Trophy goalie in Sergei Bobrovsky, their highest-scoring defenceman, James Wisniewski, and six of their 10 best forwards. Its a big year for the Jackets, as they try to build on last seasons playoff showing against Pittsburgh and Columbus is playing host to the All-Star Game. Ryan Johansens messy contract negotiations threatened to spoil his and the teams start, but Johansen has played well. Its too bad much of his scoring support is missing. Scott Hartnell is the only other top forward who has suited up for every game and Hartnell has just one goal with his new team. Injuries arent supposed to be used as an excuse, but injuries that potentially can completely ruin a season might be different. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

ASHBURN, Va. Tom Waddle Bears Jersey . - Jay Gruden said the the jury is still out on the Washington Redskins quarterback position. Robert Griffin III doesnt think that way at all.The coach also said his quarterbacks need to be thick-skinned and not let outside criticism get to them. Griffin, on Tuesday, turned two football questions into answers that referenced outside criticism.Griffins physical and mental performance will be hyper-analyzed over the final seven weeks of the season. He needs to stay healthy, and he needs to show the first-year coach that he can handle all of the other rigours of playing quarterback in the NFL.On Monday, Gruden said the jury is out at quarterback because hes started three players at the position. Griffin only just returned on Sunday after missing six games with a dislocated left ankle, a layoff that disrupted his efforts to learn to be more of a pocket-passer.Gruden said he feels good about Griffins progress to date, but there are things the team will have to find out about the third-year QB before the end of the season — after which the Redskins will have to decide whether to pick up an option year on Griffins contract.On Tuesday, however, before the players broke for a five-day bye-week vacation, Griffin said he doesnt view the rest of the season as a chance to prove hes definitively the franchise quarterback.When it comes to being the franchise guy, that is what it is. I believe that I am, Griffin said. I believe that this organization knows that I am, and I know those guys in the locker room believe that I am. Theres no doubt there, so I dont ever step onto the field trying to make a claim saying Im the guy. No, its not like that. This is my team and Im going to lead it.Asked about Grudens jury is still out remark, Griffin said he understands it because he hasnt had much of a chance to play for the coach because of the ankle injury.Availability is the key, Griffin said, so my job is to continue to go out there, get better each week, help this team win football games, and the rest will take care of itself.Griffin had a mixed performance in Sundays 29-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He used his tremendous athleticism to extend plays, revived his ability as a running threat in the zone-read and led a pair of second-half scoring drives in a tight game.But he also took five sacks — more than Kirk Cousins or Colt McCoy took in any of their starts — and made two bad throws at inopportune times, one a momentum-turning interception and the other a short-armed toss that ended the Redskins final legitimate scoring threat.Gruden said Griffin still needs to get a better feel for the pocket to avoid the sacks, but Griffin said theres also some good that can happen when he holds onto the ball a little longer.I feel like I add an element to the game by being able to extend plays and make plays ... Sacks are a part of the game. You dont want to take many of them, and I always will work on that, Griffin said, but Im not going to limit myself out there on the field because I think thats a detriment to our offence if I take that part of my game out.Griffin has always displayed a sensitively to criticism of his play, something Gruden has mentioned more than once and cited again Monday. The outside pundits were clearly on Griffins mind Tuesday when he was asked if it was good to get in a game before the bye week.Instead of answering the question, Griffin sought to quash the notion that he shouldve waited until after the bye to return.For us to push that off to after the bye just because of outside opinion, I think is a disservice to this team, Griffin said, because we always want to have the best opportunity to win each week.Later, asked about his decision to slide on a third-and-20 run in the fourth quarter instead of fighting for the extra yards, Griffin said he wasnt contemplating public reaction as he made his way upfield.I wasnt thinking about what anybody else was going to say, he said. I just knew I was going to get molly-whopped if I tried to go for that first down.___AP NFL websites: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL___Follow Joseph White on Twitter: http://twitter.com/JGWhiteAP Dick Butkus Jersey . Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 3-1 in Game 3 of their NLDS matchup to take a 2-1 series lead. David Fales Jersey .Y. - Artem Sergeev scored the winner shorthanded at 17:28 of the third period as the Syracuse Crunch edged the St. TORONTO -- With little left on the line for the lottery-bound Toronto Raptors, coach Dwane Casey has been preaching to his players about being competitive. He liked what he saw Friday. With 5:33 left in the third quarter, a frustrated Chicago Bulls guard Richard Hamilton threw a hard forearm that caught DeMar DeRozan under the chin and promptly got Hamilton ejected from the game -- a 97-88 Raptors victory. "I liked that, the officials made the call but I liked that of our guys. No back-down," Casey said. "Thats what were trying to develop, thats what we want to be. Guys get frustrated when you touch them when you lean into them. We want them to be uncomfortable." Amir Johnson had 24 points and nine rebounds, while Rudy Gay poured in 23 points to power the short-handed Raptors past Chicago for Torontos second win over the Bulls in four days. DeRozan finished with 19 points, Kyle Lowry had 13 to along with 11 assists, and rookie Quincy Acy finished with 10 points and nine boards for Toronto (31-48). The game got chippy in the second half, highlighted by Hamiltons cheapshot that brought the Raptors bench to its feet and Acy -- an aggressive rookie that Johnson compares to a Dennis Rodman or Reggie Evans -- rushing into the fray in DeRozans defence. A teammate corralled Acy, who already has two technical fouls in April. "I love Q, I just hate to see him lose his money when he gets techs," DeRozan said of the rookie forward. "He has everybodys backs and thats big. Thats the type of guy we need on this team. For a rookie to be doing that, thats big." DeRozan picked up a technical soon after for yapping with Nate Robinson. "We cant give up," DeRozan said. "We have to play the whole game, we just have to continue to get better at that, especially when things arent going our way." Carlos Boozer had 19 points and 12 rebounds to top the Bulls (43-36) before fouling out with 3:49 left to play. Robinson had 17 points, while Nazr Mohammed grabbed 13 boards to go with 16 points for Chicago. The Raptors were missing Jonas Valanciunas, who hurt his neck in Torontos 101-98 win at Chicago on Tuesday, Terrence Ross (ankle) and Landry Fields (strep throat). Yet they managed to cobble together a 15-point lead in the third quarter against a Bulls team thats battling for playyoff position, and took a 73-65 lead into the fourth. Khari Lee Jersey. The Raptors kept their composure through the final quarter, and when Marco Belinelli drained a three-pointer to cut the lead to six points with just under three minutes to go, Toronto answered with a Johnson dunk followed up by a three by Gay and the home team was back up by 11. Chicago had snapped New Yorks 13-game winning streak with a 118-111 overtime victory at home the previous night and Casey said the gameplan was to go hard at the tired team. "We wanted to play a fast tempo game. Our guys did a good job of running the floor and not turning the ball over," the coach said. "Defensively we made it tough on them. We made them earn every inch of the court." A sellout Air Canada Centre crowd of 19,800 turned out to watch a Raptors squad that has just three games left in its fifth consecutive season without a post-season appearance. Toronto could finish one spot out of the playoffs in ninth, but its a position Casey said would mean "nothing right now." "We went into the season, I remember saying we were going to knock on the door for the playoffs. I dont think I ever said were going to make the playoffs. If you look at the predictions early in the season, were close to where everybody predicted," Casey said. "Im not happy, Im not satisfied, Im disappointed as anyone that we didnt make the playoffs, but were taking steps. "Nobody said it was going to be fast, but nobody is satisfied with where we are." Boozer scored 13 first-quarter points, including six consecutive baskets to give the Bulls an early 11-point lead. Toronto battled back to cut Chicagos lead to 22-20 heading into the second. Toronto shot 65 per cent in the second, and finished the quarter on a 12-3 run to take a 47-43 lead into the dressing room at halftime. The Raptors stretched their advantage to a game-high 15 on a long jumper by Gay with 4:19 left in the third and held on to lead by eight with a quarter left. Notes: Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson and Joakim Noah didnt make the trip for Chicago. ... The Raptors host the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, are in Atlanta on Tuesday, then return home to host the Boston Celtics in their season finale on Wednesday. ...

LOS ANGELES -- With four games left before the playoffs, including one against second-place Oklahoma City, the Los Angeles Clippers are focused on fine-tuning themselves. Daniel Kilgore Jersey . Sure, they will take another victory over the Lakers, but as Blake Griffin said, "It doesnt mean that much to us." Griffin and Chris Paul scored 23 points apiece, and the Clippers hung their third consecutive rout on the Lakers, 120-97 Sunday to take three of four games this season from their beleaguered Staples Center co-tenants. "Our whole message is to worry about ourselves," Griffin said. "We know who we are. We just want to sharpen the things we do." It wasnt quite the blowout of the Clippers previous two wins -- 48 points on March 6 and 36 points on Jan. 10 -- but they were easily in command as the designated home team. "They were bigger, talented, and they played better," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said. J.J. Redick added 15 points in his second game back from injury and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Pacific Division-winning Clippers, who improved to 32-6 at home while shooting 57 per cent. "Its a game that we expected to win," guard Jared Dudley said. "We got up, went out there and did a good job." The injury-plagued Lakers were down to just eight players after guard Kent Bazemore got hurt in the second quarter. Jordan Hill led them with 22 points and Nick Young added 18 points off the bench, where there were plenty of empty seats. Jodie Meeks had 17 points. "Its one of those years," forward Wesley Johnson said. "Its tough to fight through it." The Lakers lone win in the series, a 116-103 victory on opening night, came well before they lost Kobe Bryant and their season rapidly went downhill as the Clippers surged under new coach Doc Rivers. The Lakers lost their fourth in a row overall, seventh straight on the road, and 10th in 13 games for their 52nd defeat of the season. Having built a 22-point lead, the Clippers starters rested in the fourth, having already had two days off since their previous game. "Its nice to win when guys have relatively low minutes," Rivers said. Hedo Turkoglu roused his teammates with a driving dunk in the final three minutes. "That might be the top team moment this year," Griffin said. "Ive never seen him move that fast or jump that high." The Clippers reeled off eight straight points to open the third, including four by Griffin, for a 65-49 lead. Jordan dunked back-to-back, Paul made two 3-pointers, and Griffin hit 3 of 4 free throws, extending the lead to 84-65. It grew bigger with a 10-3 spurt that sent the Clippers into the fourth leading 94-72. The Clippers shot 62 per cent and outscored the Lakers 37-23 in the third. Young scored the first five points of the second quarter, giving the Lakers a two-point lead, their first of the game. They kept it close over the next 4 1/2 minutes before the Clippers used a 19-12 run to lead 57-49 at halftime. Griffin had eight points and Paul six in the teams first extended offensive burst of the game. Notes: The Lakers said Bazemore sprained his right foot and will undergo an MRI on Monday. ... The Lakers were already thin, with Pau Gasol (vertigo), Steve Nash (nerve root irritation), Chris Kaman (strained right calf), Jordan Farmar (strained right groin), Xavier Henry (ligament, wrist and knee injuries), and Bryant sidelined. ... Paul and Redick started their 18th game in the backcourt together, but first since Nov. 27, with injuries having sidelined both at various times. ... Clippers F Danny Granger sat out with a strained left hamstring, while G Jamal Crawford remains out with a strained left calf. ... Paul McCartney and wife Nancy took in the game sitting midway up from the court. Ahmad Brooks Jersey . Yet he had little trouble in securing an Olympic medal for Canada Sunday at the Iceberg Skating Palace in Sochi. Vance McDonald Jersey . The win gives the Jets 66 points, same as Dallas and Vancouver. All three teams tied for the final playoff spot in the west. Phoenix is one point back, Nashville now four back of the Jets.The Montreal Canadiens announced Saturday that theyve signed goaltender Dustin Tokarski to a two-year contract extension. Tokarski has appeared in three games this season for Montreal, going 2-0 including recording his first NHL shutout on March 16th against the Buffalo Sabres. The 24-year-old was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in fifth round oof the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Jeff Driskel 49ers Jersey. He was traded to the Canadiens for Cedrick Desjardins in February 2013. In ten career games with Tampa Bay and Montreal, the Humboldt, Saskatchewan native has a 3-3-1 record with a 2.93 goals against average and a .920 save percentage.

PEORIA, Ariz. Breshad Perriman Jersey . -- Chase Headley is confident the Padres will spend what it takes to become a contender. Its just that so far they havent offered him enough money to ensure hell stay in San Diego. A healthy and confident Headley was upbeat in the clubhouse Wednesday after the retooled Padres held their first full squad workout of spring training, even as the third baseman acknowledged contract talks are going nowhere and hell likely become a free agent next winter. "Unless something drastically changes, I think were just going to focus on playing this year and reevaluate when the seasons over," Headley said. "I dont think either side is going to close the door, necessarily, but I think weve had enough discussion to understand that right now we havent found enough common ground to keep doing this." Headley, who declared himself fit after minor off-season surgery on his right knee, declined to say how long of a contact hes seeking or how far apart the two sides are on money. Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler was similarly tightlipped when asked if he thought a deal could be reached before the start of the regular season. "All Ill say is that discussions have taken place," Fowler said. "To put a timeline on us I think is not appropriate at this point." Fowlers tone Wednesday was a far cry from last May, when he said he was prepared to offer Headley a multi-year deal that would make him the highest-paid player in franchise history. Headley, though, quickly rebuffed the overture and said he wouldnt negotiate during the season. He then went on to hit just .250 with 13 homers and 50 RBIs. Headley acknowledged the trouble in the negotiations now is whether he should be paid for hitting .286 with 31 home runs and a National League-best 115 RBIs in 2012, or for last seasons mediocre numbers. "As a player youre always going to bet on yourself," Headley said. "I think Im a much better player than I showed last year. And I think in this coming year and the years to come Im going to be a better player. So thats why we are where we are and we understand it." The two sides avoided arbitration in January when Headley agreed to a one-year deal for a team-high $10,525,000. Known for being thrifty in the past, the Padres also signed free-agent starting pitcher Josh Johnson to a one-year, $8 million deal and brought in setup man Joaquin Benoit for $15.5 million over two years. The Padres, who last made the playoffs in 2006, are expected to have a club-record payroll of about $87 million. "In business you budget for investment years, and Id call this the first of probably many investment years," Fowler said. Thats a key for Headley, who turns 30 in May and has yet to play in the post-season. "If the clubs not going to be willing to put the pieces on the field that you need, then I dont want to be part of that club," Headley said. "And I know thats not going to be the case here. "San Diego is all Ive ever known and I have a lot of strong feelings about the guys in this clubhouse, the coaching staff, the city. Perfect world? Absolutely, this would be the No. 1 choice." But Headley doubts a deal can be reached before the opener and vowed to again not negotiate during the season. And the Padres may want to wait to see if Headley rebounds from his subpar 2013. "Its kind of a difficult thing to judge," Headley said, "when youre coming off two seasons that were kind of polar opposites." NOTES: Fowler, who indicated 10-year-old Petco Park had been "neglected" recently, said a new sound system has been installed and a new video board is likely in 2015. "We want to put significant number of dollars in over the next five years and have Petco looking the way Petco should," Fowler said. . The Padres announced the opener March 30 against the Dodgers is a sellout and CEO Mike Dee said ticket interest is at a "five-year high." Eric Weddle Ravens Jersey . The third-seeded former Wimbledon runner-up Bartoli outlasted Russian Vera Dushevina 6-2, 6-7 (3-7), 6-4 in just over three hours on the green clay at Family Circle Tennis Center. Joe Flacco Jersey . It was almost exactly like the way Babcocks Team Canada won gold at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The result was a 2-1 Red Wings victory on Swedish Olympian Gustav Nyquists rebound goal with 28 seconds left in overtime.MISSISSAUGA, Ont. -- The frustration was etched on the faces of the Toronto Argonauts on Monday, the pain of missing out on a chance to defend their Grey Cup title still gnawing away at them a day later. A rather glum Scott Milanovich was the first to appear at a season-ending media availability on a grey, windy afternoon at the teams practice facility west of Toronto. Quarterback Ricky Ray and linebacker Marcus Ball soon followed their head coach, the dreary weather echoing their moods. Disappointment was a word uttered repeatedly. The failure to win the East Division final had sunk in but the 36-24 loss to Hamilton still stung a day later. "I wish we had one more drive, one more quarter, whatever -- one more game," said linebacker Marcus Ball. "We definitely expected to have one more game. We just fell a little short." The Argonauts started strong in front of over 35,000 fans at Rogers Centre on Sunday. The Tiger-Cats, buoyed by a significant number of Hamilton fans in the crowd, took the momentum in the second half and got the win. Torontos solid 11-7 regular-season record and first-place finish were quickly forgotten. Milanovich took his share of the blame for the result. "Im disappointed I didnt coach better," he said. "Were disappointed we didnt play better and didnt take advantage of the opportunity we earned by getting the bye and playing at home." Expectations were high after a Grey Cup victory last year on their home turf. The Argonauts were a confident bunch and looked like they were on their way back to the championship game after a strong first half. Ray was dynamite over the first two quarters but Hamilton quarterback Henry Burris stepped up his game in the second half. The Argonauts went quiet and the Tiger-Cats took advantage. "The buck stops at the head coach and we didntt get it done," Milanovich said. C.J. Mosley Ravens Jersey. "Its my responsibility to find ways in which I could have done better or put our guys in better position to have gotten the job done. "And Ill do that and Ill be better a year from now." Toronto clearly missed the presence of injured running back Chad Kackert, who won the Grey Cup MVP award last year. The Argonauts rushed for only 13 yards against the Tiger-Cats and instead relied on Rays impressive arm. When the Ticats made adjustments at the half, Toronto was stifled and never recovered. "Its tough," Ray said. "This one is going to hang around for a little while." The Argonauts had their chances in the fourth quarter, with Ray leading the team on a late drive before turning the ball over on downs with less than a minute to play. "You can beat yourself up pretty good about it," Ray said of the missed opportunities. "But what youve got to realize is you cant win them all." Hamilton will represent the East in the Grey Cup game next Sunday in Regina against the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who dumped the Calgary Stampeders 35-13 in the West Division final. Milanovich said he was proud of his team and feels there is a strong nucleus in place. He anticipates a busy off-season, adding he thinks the franchise can be a title contender "each and every year." "We were so close," he said. "We had the game in the first half where we felt like we wanted it and we werent able to close the deal. The older you get, the more you realize you only have so many opportunities to be a champion. "We let one slip through our hands and Hamilton took advantage of that and you have to give them credit for it. But any time you dont win it all, I think its going to be (remembered) as a disappointing season." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

MONTREAL -- Marco Schallibaums future as coach of the Montreal Impact remains in limbo. Mario Williams Bills Jersey . At a news conference Tuesday where it was thought that the fiery Schallibaum may be shown the door after a dismal finish to the Major League Soccer season, team president Joey Saputo said no decision has been made on whether the Swiss Volcano will be back in 2014. And the answer may not come soon. "We had excellent discussions with Marco (on Monday)," said Saputo. "But we have dont want to make a decision too quickly. "We will continue to analyse the situation in the coming weeks." Saputo denied a report that Impact defender Alessandro Nesta would be the new coach. He said he never discussed a coaching job with the 37-year-old Nesta, the former Italy and AC Milan great who retired as a player at the end of the season. "I dont know where that rumour comes from," he said. "Alessandro has the qualities to eventually be a coach, whether an assistant or a head coach, in this league. But hes barely finished playing. "He has to go for his coaching license. But I think he does have the potential." Saputo and sporting director Nick De Santis met with the media to review the 2013 season, but they were either unable or unwilling to pass on anything concrete about the coach, where the team needs to improve or which players will or wont be back next season. He said management needs time to interview players and coaches before decisions are made. Overall, the season was step forward from their expansion campaign in 2012. The team finished 14-13-7 for 49 points, the most ever by a Canadian-based MLS club, and made the playoffs in only their second season. They also won the Amway Canadian Championship, although they bombed out in CONCACAF Champions League play. Schallibaum has said he wants to stay on. His contract was automatically extended through the 2014 season when the Impact made the playoffs, but Saputo said that wont factor in on whether he keeps the job. The club is also reportedly still paying Jesse Marsch, the coach in 2012. Schallibaum, a 51-year-old former Switzerland defender, was suspended four times for a total of fives games in his first MLS campaign, but looked to have his temper under control in the second half of the season. Saputo remarked that the team did better on the field when Schallibaum was being suspended every other week than it did when he calmed down, but added there was surely no correlation between those factors. The Impact shot out to a 9-3-2 start and were still in the hunt for first place in the Eastern Conference in August, but then went into a tailspin that saw them lose seven of their last nine games. A dismal effort in a 1-0 regular season-ending loss in Toronto left them with the fifth and final playoff spot, but they were even worse in their single-game knockout round loss in Houston last week. Not only did they lose 3-0, they had three players sent off, including midfielder Andres Romero for kicking at a ball that was underneath a fallen Dynamo player, and star forward Marco Di Vaio for jumping to Romeros defence. The incident in the final minutes of the match was one of the first issues addressed by Saputo, who called it an embarrassment. "A particular apology on my behalf to the MLS family for the way we conducted ourselves last Thursday," he said. "Thats not the image we want to project. There was a lot of frustration, but thats no excuse." Di Vaio, a 20-goal scorer who is expected to be named the teams player of the year on Wednesday, and Romero will each be suspended for the first three games of 2014. Defender Nelson Rivas, also set off in Houston, will be suspended for one match. Romero became a target for fans for his frequent giveaways in midfield, and one could imagine committing a foul that causes the team president to make a public apology would mark the end of his stay in Montreal, but De Santis vehemently defended the 23-year-old Argentine. "I get the feeling that a lot of you think that hes not good enough, but I think Andres has a lot of potential," said De Santis. "Everyone goes through a phase, an adaptation period, but Andres showed a lot of good things at the beginning of the season. "And remember, hes 23. If you look at our 20-to-23 year olds, hes played at a high level. He needs to be mentally strong in certain situations. His wife had twins who stayed in Argentina. That plays a big part in your personal life. We have to see what his situation is with his family." Team management also wants to examine how playing in the Canadian championship and the Champions League affected its performance in MLS. The team looked physically and mentally drained at the end of the season. "When a team slides like that, you ask many questions," said De Santis. "For two moths we were hoping that the last game in Toronto wouldnt be do or die. "In the end, thats where we were, and I dont think we got there with a team that was hungry and ready to do anything to get into the playoffs." Shaq Lawson Jersey . Nevada Athletic Commission Chairman Francisco Aguilar said Friday the two welterweights will face unannounced pre-fight testing handled by collectors certified by the World Anti-Doping Agency. Marcus Easley Bills Jersey . Its what they expected. And now theyll meet in a French Open final with so much at stake for both.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 neever leaving the hotel. Fred Jackson Jersey. 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." Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

SILVIS, Ill. Green Bay Packers Jerseys . -- Brian Harman had two eagles in a 6-under 65 on Saturday that gave him a one-stroke lead after three rounds of the John Deere Classic. Harmans solid performance got him to 17-under 196 for the tournament at TPC Deere Run. Three-time winner Steve Stricker is alone in second, one stroke better than Scott Brown heading into the final round. Tim Clark, Jerry Kelly, William McGirt and 2012 champion Zach Johnson are three back at 14-under 199. Clark shot a 64 to move into contention. The 27-year-old Harman has never finished better than third on the PGA Tour, but he played quite well in the third round. The lefty hit 17 greens and 12 of 14 fairways. Harman bogeyed Nos. 12 and 18, the latter by missing the green with his approach. His eagles came from 30 feet on the par-5 second and from 47 feet on the par-5 17th. Stricker finished strong for a 7-under 64. He had his streak of bogey-free holes end at 24 with a 5 at the par-4 11th, but rallied for birdies on the last two holes. Brown matched the lowest PGA Tour round of 2014 with his 10-under 61. On a day when players were allowed to clean their ball in the fairway because of an early morning downpour, he flirted with a 59, but had to settle for birdie on the par-5 17th after reaching the green in two shots, and then parred the par-4 18th. Jhonattan Vegas played with Brown and nearly matched his score with a bogey-free 63 for 200, tying Ryan Moore for ninth place. He opened with three birdies in succession, and collected an eagle on the 17th. Clark has missed the cut in five of his last seven tournaments, but birdied seven holes to post his best round of the year and get within three shots of Harman. Harmans long eagle putt on the second hole triggered his nice round. He had birdies on the fourth and eighth holes to go out in 31, and then added two more birdies before his long downhill eagle putt on the 17th, which turned left in the last 15 feet before falling into the cup. His bogey at the final hole, coupled with Strickers birdie there, trimmed his three-stroke lead to one shot. Browns 61 came after what he called a "bad 1-under" 70 on Friday. "I was just trying to get back into the golf tournament, and it turned into a great round," Brown said. Vegas, who had shoulder surgery last year, needs to make over $280,000 this week and in his next two tournaments to keep his PGA Tour card. A good finish here could take care of that. "Whatever happens happens, to be honest," Vegas said. "If it works, fine. If it doesnt, we go to the range." Johnsons 2-under 69 extended his streak of under-70 rounds at par-71 Deere Run to 23. Defending champion Jordan Spieth shot 67 and is tied for 14th at 202, six strokes behind Harman. Spieth came from six off the pace last year to win. Jarrett Boykin Jersey .C. -- The buzz is back in Charlotte. Clay Matthews Packers Jersey . Toronto (7-9) visits Montreal (8-8) for its first road game in five weeks. The Argos went 3-1 on a recent homestand, including a 26-24 victory over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Saturday that gave them the season series with their longtime rivals.On all levels the 100-year anniversary of the Canadian Skating Championships was an overwhelming success. In honour of the anniversary, over 80 Canadian champions of the past were in attendance to witness one of the best Canadian Championships in many years. What made this championships so successful was first and foremost the inspired and at times heart wrenching performances of Canadas best as they tried to validate four long years of effort in a few short minutes of competition. What we saw was strength in all of the disciplines. Strength across the board, which reminds me of the good old days - the 1988 Calgary Olympics when Canada had its biggest medal haul in skating at the Games, winning medals in three of the four disciplines. Its interesting to note that this will be the biggest Olympic skating team from this country since those 1988 Games and with the addition of the team event it looks likely that Canada will equal or top that medal total from 26 years ago. The audiences were terrific in Ottawa. They were loud, enthusiastic and large in numbers. The packed house on Saturday got their moneys worth and gave numerous standing ovations in return. Highlights for me were plentiful. The womens competition, which in the past has often been the least hotly contested title, was instead more competitive and intriguing that it has ever been. Kaetlyn Osmond showed her trademark composure and charisma after coming back from a season of injuries to defend her title and to prove that her breakout season last year was no fluke. She has a presence that fills the arena and an elusive blend of raw talent and solid technique which is mixed with the soul of an artist. What I find most appealing in Kaetlyns character is the refusal to take herself or the magnitude of the moment too seriously. Each moment is met with a smile, a giggle or a shrug, and with eyes sparkling. This is supposed to be fun, right? To watch her compete is to believe just that. That it is fun. Gabby Daleman at only 15 years of age showed a feisty competitiveness and raw athleticism on her way to winning silver and a ticket to Sochi. Her triple lutz-triple toe, the most difficult triple-triple combination being executed in the world of womens skating, was as good as they come. This kid can fly and showed a focus and nerve quite remarkable for her age. As good as the two at the top are, the rest of the field showed us that they will continue to be pushed, as the final flight was filled with youth, triple jumps and engaging personalities. This bodes well for the seasons to come. Speaking of youth, in the mens event it was 14-year-old Roman Sadovsky and 15-year-old Nam Nguyen who brought the housee to its feet and the scores to new heights in the penultimate flight. Julius Peppers Jersey. These are the numbers that the final group of men were challenged to beat. What we saw was a glimpse of where the next Patrick or Jeffery or Kurt might come from. They were back-to-back exceptional scores, for remarkable performances by young teenagers and once again the future looks bright. Patrick Chan, who came in without challengers due to the fact that Kevin Reynolds was not in peak competition form because of skate malfunctions, was not as sharp as usual and showed signs of his focus being a little split between the here and now, and the larger challenge looming that is the Olympics. But, "not his best" is still world class, and it was the kind of performance that will keep him on his toes without chipping away at his confidence. A rock solid foundation to build on for the games. The drama came in the pairs competition with the intense rivalry building once again between Kirsten Moore-Towers and Dylan Moscovitch the worlds fourth-ranked pair and world bronze medalists and defending Canadian champions, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford. Like last year the teams were separated by less than a point after the short program with Kirsten and Dylan just behind. That meant that they were the first of the two teams to skate in the free program showdown. About the performance in the free, Meagan said "We didnt know what they did before us, but we did hear a New Canadian Record!" and so they knew that the bar had been raised yet again. Both teams set Canadian records that night and both teams brought the fans to their feet in appreciation of the pairs finesse and fearlessness. The evening wound up with the Ice Dance event which was a "something for everyone" type of affair. It was filled with a variety of genres, an abundance of athleticism and dramatic and emotional musical interpretations. The final flight of dance was of such a high standard that the teams fighting for the third Olympic spot knew that only "their very best" and "not a step wrong" would get them there. In the end it was Alexandra Paul and Mitch Islam after two seasons of mishaps and heartaches who nailed the Olympic spot. Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje won silver, wowed the crowd and showed with their fluid and refined Tango that they are absolutely Olympic podium worthy. The final skate of an awesome day fell into the capable hands of Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir. They closed the show and the final chapter of their competitive life at Canadians with their Olympic free dance, a standing ovation and a final good bye. A fitting end to a fabulous day. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
