PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. Tyrod Taylor Jersey . -- Maple Leafs captain Dion Phaneuf has been suspended two games for his hit from behind on Kevan Miller of the Bruins. Phaneuf boarded Miller, who clearly had his back turned, during Torontos loss to Boston on Sunday night at Air Canada Centre. No boarding penalty was called on the play. In announcing the suspension, NHL vice-president of player safety Brendan Shanahan said that Miller should never have been eligible to be hit like he was. "At no point during his approach does Phaneuf see anything but Millers numbers, so the onus is on him to either avoid the hit completely or at the very least minimize it more than he does," Shanahan said. Miller left the game, but Claude Julien told reporters that he wasnt worried about the defencemans condition. That factored into the two-game suspension, as did the fact that Phaneuf has no previous history of discipline in nine NHL seasons. The suspension is the Leafs fourth during the regular season. David Clarkson got an automatic 10 games for leaving the bench to join an altercation during the pre-season, Nazem Kadri got three games for elbowing Wild goaltender Niklas Backstrom in the head last month, and Carter Ashton was suspended two games for boarding Flames forward Derek Smith. Phil Kessel was suspended three pre-season games for slashing Sabres forward John Scott during the brawl between the teams in September. Phaneuf told reporters at the teams practice facility in Toronto that he was not happy about the decision but had to accept it. Coach Randy Carlyle said the team had a difference of opinion with the league on the ruling. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli did not have much more than that to add. "I accept the ruling," he said after the board of governors meeting. "Im just happy Miller wasnt hurt and hes able to play." Miller is expected to be in the Bruins lineup Tuesday night when they visit the Calgary Flames. Phaneuf will miss the Leafs game against the Los Angeles Kings on Wednesday and their game at the St. Louis Blues on Thursday. Hell forfeit $66,666.66 in salary as a result of the suspension. Zane Gonzalez Jersey . Its like being on Broadway, everything you do matters. Id want to be good though! I couldnt play here if I wasnt very good.   #83217388 / gettyimages. Carlos Hyde Browns Jersey . Cruz set the tone with a two-run homer in the first inning, and Baltimore scored eight times in the eighth to pull away for a 12-3 victory in Game 1. The major league leader with 40 homers during the regular season, Cruz added an RBI single to his early blast off Max Scherzer.DALLAS - Dirk Nowitzki was frustrated by his poor shooting performance in Dallas previous game. That disappointment, plus a little help from an old friend, turned into another big performance by the veteran forward. Nowitzki scored seven of his 32 points in overtime, leading the Mavericks to a 128-119 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Tuesday night. Nowitzki also had 10 rebounds and six assists. In Dallas loss to Brooklyn on Sunday, he was 2 for 12 from the field in his worst shooting performance of the season. "The last game was disappointing for me," Nowitzki said. "I was just hesitating too much, so I had to go back to having fun out there and just being me. "That was a heck of a game, and it was fun to be a part of." The 7-foot Nowitzki was 11 for 23 from the field and 8 for 8 at the line. "His emotion and his attitude carried the team," Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said. "Hes a prideful guy. I think great players are great for a reason. They never let anything keep them down for long. Hes bounced back from every adversity hes ever had in his career, so this is no surprise." Kevin Durant led Oklahoma City with 43 points. He has scored at least 25 in 36 consecutive games in the longest such streak since Michael Jordans 40-game run during the 1986-87 season. Dallas had seven players score in double figures. Jose Calderon went 6 for 8 from 3-point range and finished with 22 points. Nowitzki said he spent time on Tuesday with Holger Geschwinder, his longtime basketball mentor from his home country of Germany. He said they got in a little shooting work. "I guess he was tired of watching my shooting percentage," Nowitzki said. "Its always good when hes there." Russell Westbrook scored 23 for Oklahoma City. All of his points came in regulation, when he played 31:50. He added another minute in overtime. Westbrook is limited to 30 to 32 minutes per game because of his oft-injured right knee. Oklahoma City was coming off a 117-96 victory over Denver on Monday night. The Thunder had won four in a row. "Im proud of our guys effort and energy, coming back from back-to-back games," coach Scott Brooks said. "I cant complain about anything we did tonight.&" "We didnt make the big play," said Durant, who has scored 40 points or more 13 times this season. Denzel Ward Browns Jersey. "They made shots in overtime. You have to give them credit." The Mavericks scored the first five points of the extra period on two free throws by Nowitzki and a 3-pointer by Calderon. They never trailed again. The victory pushed Dallas into eighth place in the Western Conference, a half-game ahead of idle Phoenix. The Mavericks improved to 3-2 on a franchise-long, eight-game homestand, with three of the games going to overtime. They began the homestand in seventh place, 1 1/2 ahead of the ninth-place Suns. Calderon returned to the starting lineup after being knocked out of Sunday nights game in the first minute. He was whacked in the face by Brooklyns Mason Plumlee, chipping a facial bone between his nose and mouth. Calderon said the injury only hurts when he talks or laughs. "And I dont have to laugh during games," he said. Another of Calderons 3s came with 26.3 seconds left in the fourth quarter and sent the game into overtime. "It felt good from the beginning," he said, "but you dont know until that ball goes through the rim." Dallas won 109-86 at Oklahoma City on March 16 in the Thunders worst loss of the season. Westbrook missed that game because the team wants to limit the activity for his surgically repaired knee, choosing to rest him in one part of back-to-back games. Westbrook was the catalyst of Oklahoma Citys second-quarter rally after the Thunder fell behind by 10. He scored 10 points in the period, including a foul shot that gave Oklahoma City a 57-48 lead with 1:25 to go. But the Mavericks answered with three consecutive 3-pointers - one from Calderon and two from Vince Carter - to tie it with 33.4 left in the half. Durant then hit a 3 to give Oklahoma City a 60-59 lead at the break. The Thunder hit 14 of 18 shots in the period and shot 57.1 per cent for the half. NOTES: Thunder centre Kendrick Perkins, sidelined since Feb. 20 with a groin strain, is hoping to return at Houston on April 4. ... If Dallas finishes among the leagues top-10 teams, Oklahoma City will get the Mavericks first-round draft choice next summer as a result of a series of trades.

INDIAN WELLS, Calif. Mike Adams Jersey . -- Roger Federer beat Kevin Anderson 7-5, 6-1 in the quarterfinals of the BNP Paribas Open on Thursday, continuing his strong play at the tournament where he has yet to drop a set in four matches. Anderson failed to break Federers serve in the match, which lasted just over an hour. The South African had 21 unforced errors, while Federer hit 17 winners and won 79 per cent of his first serve points. A four-time Indian Wells champion, Federer will play Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov in the semifinals. Dolgopolov beat Milos Raonic 6-3, 6-4. On the womens side, top-seeded Li Na beat Dominika Cibulkova 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in a rematch of their Australian Open final. She next plays Flavia Pennetta, who defeated Sloane Stephens 6-4, 5-7, 6-4 in Thursdays other quarterfinal. Federer earned the only break in the first set in the last game when Anderson netted a backhand volley. The Swiss star then broke Anderson twice to take a 4-0 lead in the second set. Anderson did his best to trade groundstrokes with Federer while looking for an opening to rush the net, but the South Africans repeated errors spoiled his game plan. "It was big to win the (first) set and then to go on to break early in the second," Federer said. "Then double break was like a bonus. From then on I was home, basically. It was a really good match for me." Dolgopolovs win assured the Ukrainian of rising to a projected No. 23 in next weeks ATP Tour rankings. He has already made the biggest jump in the top 50 this year, moving up 26 spots to No. 31 before the tournament began. "Obviously if youre ranked 20, 30, 40 youre a good enough player. To get in the top 10 you just need all those small things to be together and to be solid," he said. "Its really small differences from the players that are top 10 and top 50." Dolgopolov improved to 6-2 against top-20 opponents this year, including his third-round win here over top-ranked Rafael Nadal. Li, who beat Cibulkova to win her second Grand Slam title in January, dropped her first set in four matches while improving to 15-1 this year. The Chinese star is seeded No. 1 for the first time at a larger WTA event. "Not like before if I come here, maybe like No. 6 or No. 7 seed," she said. "But I think I am handling very well, so just continue." Li rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the second set to close to 5-4 before Cibulkova called for her coach. After they huddled, the Slovak player held to even the match at a set apiece. They traded breaks to open the third. Cibulkova survived a service game that went to deuce seven times and staved off four break points to level the score at 2-all. Li swept the final three games, however, to seal the victory. "Im disappointed I didnt win because I had my chances," Cibulkova said. "My serve was just not there. Maybe I tried to go for too much. Her serve was much better than mine." Pennetta emerged victorious after a wildly uneven match affected by swirling winds in the third set from a dust storm outside the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. "The third was a disaster for both of us," Pennetta said. Stephens was the lone American woman left in the tournament, enjoying her best showing of the year so far. She appeared poised to move on after winning six straight games over the end of the second set and start of the third to take a 3-0 lead in the decider. But the Italian, who at 32 is 12 years older than Stephens, won six of the final seven games, breaking the American at love in one of those games. "I was trying to play in the middle of the court, but there was no one ball was in the middle, was always right or left," Pennetta said. No. 2 seed Agnieszka Radwanska and Simona Halep meet in the other womens semifinal Friday. Alexander Armah Jersey . Adam Lind provided the power and rookie starter Marcus Stroman had the best start of his young career as the Blue Jays dumped the Yankees 8-3 at Rogers Centre. Stroman, making his fifth start for Toronto, allowed one earned run and three hits over a career-high eight innings. Greg Van Roten Jersey . About seven hours before facing Washington in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference second round series, team officials said the oft-injured Bynum would miss the rest of the playoffs and would not even be with the team for the rest of the post-season.FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - The Broncos braved the cold for their first full practice of Super Bowl week, working in pads for nearly two hours after a 30-minute walkthrough session Wednesday. Denver practiced on the synthetic turf outdoor field at the New York Jets training facility. By the end of practice, the temperature dipped to 21 degrees. "It was great," Broncos coach John Fox said after practice. "Were pretty much weather-proof. We practice in this stuff all the time. Being in Denver, weve played in a few different elements. We practiced numerous times in single digit, played in single digit, played in wind. Weve practiced in snow many times. Were pretty much ready for anything." Fox has chosen not to use the indoor field at the Jets plush headquarters for practices this week, opting for the type of natural elementss that will greet his team at Met Life Stadium on Super Sunday. C.J. Anderson Jersey. . Fox was pleased with the flow after the travel and various commitments connected to playing in a Super Bowl. Wednesday is typically when the focus toward the game increases, given the full-scale practices. "I wanted to see how well they would re-boot, get re-charged and practice what weve put in," Fox said. "They recalled it and it went very well. We had a very good practice." The Broncos had a sense of normalcy on a few levels. Peyton Manning, as usual, was in command and precise with his throws. He seemed unaffected by the elements. "Very sharp," Fox said. "What Ive noticed, he had to get used to weather over the past two years. I think hes done an unbelievable job, which I think people forget."

THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- Bernhard Langer shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday to open a three-stroke lead in the Champions Tours Insperity Invitational. Ian McCoshen Jersey . Langer had a 10-under 134 total at The Woodlands Country Club. The 56-year-old German player won the 2007 event at Augusta Pines and successfully defended his title in 2008 at The Woodlands. He won the season-opening event in Hawaii for his 19th Champions Tour title. "Every win is a thrill and its exciting," Langer said. "Im not sure Ive ever won any other tournament three times. That would be a first and it would be a lot of fun." Colin Montgomerie was second after a 66, the best round of the day. He eagled the par-5 13th. In his second year on the tour, Montgomeries best finish is a second in March in Newport Beach, California. Montgomerie is hoping to get the upper hand over "good friend" Langer when theyre grouped together Sunday. "Ive been trying all bloody year to do it and Ive not done it yet," he said. "Not many people have, to be honest. But hes playing some superb golf and its nice to have an opportunity anyway tomorrow to give it another go and see if I can win out here." Montgomerie played in college at Houston Baptist. Defending champion Esteban Toledo, Gary Hallberg and Bart Bryant were four strokes back. Hallberg had a 67, Toledo shot 71, and Bryant -- tied for the first-round lead with Langer -- had a 72. Fred Couples, the 2010 winner, was tied for sixth at 5 under after a 70. The former University of Houston player won the Newport Beach event. Denis Malgin Jersey . -- Brandon Hope stopped 46 shots and Kurtis MacDermid scored with 27 seconds remaining in overtime as the Owen Sound Attack edged the visiting Kingston Frontenacs 5-4 on Saturday in Ontario Hockey League action. Nick Bjugstad Jersey . His right arm rested in a sling and was encased in a cast from above the elbow to his hand. "Im excited," Fernandez said with a grin.WINNIPEG -- The Washington Capitals did a lot wrong but still came out ahead with a 5-4 shootout win over the Winnipeg Jets. Martin Erat scored the winner in the sixth round of the shootout on Tuesday, despite Washington being outshot 47-32 and giving up many breakaways to the hard-charging Jets. "We made every mistake you can make basically in the course of the game," said Capitals head coach Adam Oates. "Its the first time this year where weve come to this building or a Canadian rink and the boys are so much faster." He said theyll find things even faster in Edmonton, where the Capitals (4-5-0) play Thursday. "Its the fastest rink in the league and youve got to be prepared for that. Its a mental adjustment." Oates gave credit to goaltender Braden Holtby for stopping 43 of the 47 shots he faced in three regulation periods and five minutes of overtime. The Capitals managed only 32 on Winnipeg netminder Ondrej Pavelec, not even one in overtime. "Holt made some huge saves," said Oates. Alex Ovechkin had two goals and an assist for Washington, while Mikhail Grabovski and Troy Brouwer also scored. "You notice it, its hard not to," Holtby said of the barrage he faced, which included more breakaways than he could count. "We got a win on the start of our road trip here and weve nowhere to go but improve for the rest of it." Bryan Little struck twice for Winnipeg (4-5-1), while Grant Clitsome and Blake Wheeler also scored as the Jets wrapped up a six-game homestand, their longest of the season. Andrew Ladd had three assists and coach Claude Noel was pleased at the way his captains intensity helped lead the team. "He played with a lot of will tonight, through physical play and winning battles," said Noel. "Thats the Andrew Ladd that really helps us win." Besides the point from the shootout loss, Noel was pleased with the Jets efforts, including coming back twice from deficits and getting more offence from his juggled forward lines. Vincent Trocheck Jersey. "We wanted to play physical. I thought that we did. We got good production from our leaders. They stepped up and played and thats a good thing, so I think we go from there and build on that." Oates said the Capitals will be talking about what they need to do as they move forward. Although they were outhustled in the first, Grabovski opened scoring in the second period with his fourth goal of the season when he swept in and put a loose puck behind Pavelec at 3:11. Little brought the Jets even with his first goal when he and Ladd broke away shorthanded at 7:21. It was the Jets second breakaway of the penalty with Evander Kane failing to get past Holtby one-on-one. "We just didnt finish," said Kane of the many scoring chances that didnt end up in the net. "Its a good sign to get those breaks and get those opportunities but it was a tough game (to lose) because we did a lot of good things." Just just over a minute after Littles goal, Byfuglien fed Clitsome, who slapped in his first goal of the season in from the point to give the Jets the 2-1 lead. Washington caught a break when Ovechkin broke away at 15:51 to beat Pavelec one-on-one to even it at 2-2. Then Ovechkin was fed off the faceoff beside the Winnipeg net and slipped one through the crowd at 18:02 to give the Capitals the lead, although it didnt last long. Wheeler tipped in a shot from Kane with less than a minute left in the period to even it up again. Brouwer finally connected with a power-play goal just under five minutes into the third period. The Jets had successfully shut down the best power play in the NHL until then. But Little evened it up again with a wrist shot from the slot at 7:04 as the Jets continued to carry the game to the Washington net. Notes: The Jets and Capitals are well acquainted. Going into Tuesdays game, the Jets had a record of 4-4-1 against Washington since the start of their inaugural 2011-12 season in Winnipeg in the Southeast Division.

HOUSTON -- Six-foot-four, 250-pound slugger Chris Carter isnt the kind of player who normally hits infield singles. Nathan Peterman Jersey . On Saturday he got the first one he could remember in the eighth inning to drive home a run and lift the Houston Astros to a 3-2 win over the Boston Red Sox. Of course, he was helped by speedy rookie George Springers hustle in beating the throw to second base on the play. "That was a big hit for us and we needed that run right there in that situation," Carter said. "I was just glad I was in the situation to come through for us." Jason Castro hit a two-run homer in the third inning to help Houston to the victory. Jose Altuve doubled to open the eighth and chase Red Sox starter Jake Peavy (1-8). Altuve advanced to third on a groundout by Castro before Springer was intentionally walked and Jon Singleton struck out. Carter then hit a grounder off Junichi Tazawa to shortstop Brock Holt. Springer just beat Holts throw to second in a force attempt, allowing Altuve to score. "Thats really good," Altuve said of Springer on the play. "Hes a guy that can do everything and that was the big thing in the game." Josh Fields (2-4) pitched 1 2-3 scoreless innings for the win and Chad Qualls got two outs for his 10th save. The Astros turned a double play to end the game and Boston challenged the play at first, but it was upheld. Castro gave Houston an early lead with his home run in the third inning before David Ortiz cut it to 2-1 with a shot in the fourth. He has now hit at least 20 homers in 13 straight seasons. The Red Sox tied it on a sacrifice fly by Dustin Pedroia in the seventh. Peavy allowed six hits and three runs with a season-high nine strikeouts in seven-plus to extend his career-long losing streak to eight games. He hasnt won since April 25 as the Red Sox have struggled to score when hes on the mound. "I think his run support is probably less than three runs a game on the year, and the way hes pitched isnt reflected in his won-loss record," manager John Farrell said. "He can only control so much, and what he was able to control (Saturday), he was outstanding at, and that was leaving guys in scoring position." Houston starter Brett Oberholtzer allowed two runs and tied a season high with 11 hits in 6 1-3 innings. He was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City before the game for his fourth stint with the Astros this season. Carter, who homered twice on Friday night, extended his career-best hitting-streak to eight games and has six homers and 10 RBIs in that span. Altuve finished with two hits and leads the majors with 130. Altuve doubled with two outs in the third inning before Castros homer to right field, which sailed just out of reach of leaping right fielder Mookie Betts and into the seats, gave Houston a 2-0 lead. Ortiz sent the first pitch of the fourth inning several rows back into the seats in right field to get Boston within one. Jackie Bradley Jr. singled to start the fifth inning before consecutive singles by Holt and Pedroia loaded the bases with one out. Oberholtzer escaped the jam when Ortiz grounded into a double play to end the inning. Castro hit a leadoff triple in the sixth inning, but Houston came away empty-handed when Springer grounded out followed by back-to-back strikeouts by Singleton and Carter. Bradley and Betts hit back to back singles to start the seventh before Oberholtzer was replaced by Fields with one out. Pedroias sacrifice fly came next to tie it before Houston intentionally walked Ortiz. Fields limited the damage by striking out Mike Napoli. NOTES: Houston placed RHP Collin McHugh on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to July 7 with a problem with a nail on his middle finger to make room on the roster for Oberholtzer. ... Houston OF Dexter Fowler, on the disabled list with a back strain, said Saturday that he is doing better, but isnt sure when hell be ready to play again. "You dont want to get it flared back up and then youll miss more time," he said. "So just ... relax and try to get it healed." Wyatt Teller Jersey . The former Toronto FC designated player played three of his 15 professional seasons with the team. Doug Flutie Jersey . -- The Minnesota Vikings have signed Jerome Simpson, the former Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver recently convicted on a felony drug charge.TORONTO - Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie played only three innings on Tuesday in his first game back from the disabled list. Lawrie was removed from the game against the Baltimore Orioles as a precaution with what the club described as lower back tightness. The 24-year-old suffered a fractured right index finger after he was hit by a pitch on June 22 in Cincinnati and was put on the 15-day disabled list. He returned for Tuesdays game after appearing in three games with single-A Dunedin of the Florida State League, where he hit .400 (4-for-10). Lawrie singled in the seconnd inning in his first at-bat after he was activated for the opener of a three-game series against the American League East leading Orioles. Trent Murphy Jersey. In 69 games this season, the right-handed hitter is batting .244 with 12 home runs and 38 runs batted in. He is known for his exceptional infield defence. To make room for Lawrie on the roster, the Jays placed infielder Steve Tolleson on the paternity list. Tolleson, 30, is batting .246 through 73 games this season with three home runs and 13 RBIs. He will be inactive for a minimum of one day and a maximum of three.

TORONTO -- Kaigun has been installed as the early 5-2 favourite for the $1-million Ricoh Woodbine Mile turf race. Paulo Orlando Jersey . Kaigun, a four-year-old gelding, will be ridden by Patrick Husbands of Brampton, Ont., and break from the No. 5 post Sunday at Woodbine Racetrack. Owner Gary Barber will also have 7-2 second favourite Jack Milton in the 11-horse field. Jack Milton and jockey Javier Castellan start from the No. 9 post. Grand Arch, the 4-1 third pick with David Moran aboard, goes from the No. 11 post. The winner will earn $600,000. Queens Plate winner Lexie Lou, also owned by Barber, headlines the 10-horse field in the $300,000 Northern Dancer for fillies and mares. The mile-and-half turf race is also on Sundays card. Joakim Soria Jersey . -- Kevin Stadler might be playing in the Masters for the first time, but hes already showing his old man a thing or two. Frank White Jersey .The ruling takes effect on Jan. 1 and stems from the debate surrounding Paralympic champion Markus Rehm, an amputee who won the national long jump title competing with a carbon-fiber prosthesis.Evansville, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - Hoping to make some significant headway in the Missouri Valley Conference standings, the Evansville Purple Aces will try to upset the 13th-ranked Wichita State Shockers when the teams meet at the Ford Center on Saturday afternoon. Wichita State comes in sporting a 15-2 overall mark, which includes a perfect 5-0 league ledger. The Shockers have won five straight, all in conference, the most recent of which being a 67-55 decision over Southern Illinois at home on Wednesday. After losing in overtime at Utah back on Dec. 3, WSU has won its last four road games, and is 6-2 all told away from home when you factor in its 2-1 record in neutral-site affairs. Evansville brings a modest two-game win streak into this fray, as the team ran its overall record to 13-4 and its MVC mark to 3-2 by winning a pair of road games at Bradley (66-56) and Missouri State (56-54) in the last week. The Purple Aces now return home where they have gone 7-2 this season, although one of the setbacks occurred the last time they played in front of friendly faces as they dropped a 71-70 decision to league foe Loyola-Chicago on Jan. 7. Wichita State owns a 25-16 lead in the all-time series with Evansville, and the Shockers won all three meetings last season, the last being an 80-58 rout in the 2014 MVC Tournament. Darius Carter scored a career-high 25 points to lead Wichita State to its recent win over Southern Illinois. Carter drained 11-of-15 field goal attempts to help the Shockers connect on an even 50 percent of their total shots. That effort was even more impressive when you realize the squad went just 2-of-12 from 3-point range. Ron Baker and Tekele Cotton contributed 11 and 10 points, respectively for WSU, which held the Salukis to 39.3 percent field goal efficiency, including only 2-of-9 from beyond the arc. A 17-9 edge in points at the foul line certainly helped the Shockers cause, as did advantagess both in bench points (17-8) and points in the paint (34-22). Ryan Goins Jersey. Baker is netting 16.2 ppg to lead four Wichita State players in double figures, the team putting up 72.1 ppg in knocking down 45.4 percent of its total shots, which includes a 36.6 percent effort from long range. Foes are as successful out on the perimeter (.367), but they commit roughly 14 turnovers per outing, while coming up five rebounds shy of the Shockers on average. All of that of course means opponents are scoring just 58.5 ppg against what is a solid Wichita State squad in just about every aspect of the game. Evansville needed to put forth a dominant defensive effort in its recent bout at Missouri State, and it did just that in holding the Bears to 36.4 percent field goal accuracy, which encompassed a miserable 2-of-13 performance for the home team out on the perimeter. The Aces bounced back from a 31.8 percent shooting effort in the opening half to convert half of their field goal attempts in the final frame. They shot 6-of-12 from distance overall, and used an 18-12 edge in points at the charity stripe to pull out the victory. Mislav Brzoja scored 18 points to pace the squad, while help came from Egidiju Mockevicius who logged a double-double with 14 points and 12 rebounds, as well as Jaylon Brown who chipped in 10 points off the bench. Despite an off night in which he tallied only seven points, D.J. Balentine continues to spearhead Evansvilles offensive attack as he averages 20.5 ppg, which ranks him among the national leaders. The only other guy netting double figures for the Purple Aces is Mockevicius with 13.7 ppg, and he is actually one of a handful of players nationally averaging a double-double as he also grabs 10.9 rpg to go with 44 blocks. As a team, Evansville is putting up 74.6 ppg while allowing only 63.9 ppg, and it is shooting 51.1 percent from the floor and 74.7 percent at the free-throw line.

"Our Canadian womens national basketball team now has the opportunity to compete for an Olympic berth with a home-court advantage," said Canada Basketball executive director Michele OKeefe. "Hosting is a strategic priority for Canada Basketball and this championship is a great step forward." Jose Ramirez Jersey . Subway workers in Rio de Janeiro, meanwhile, were holding an assembly to vote on whether they would strike to demand higher wages, threatening to disrupt transportation. By late Tuesday night there was no announcement of their decision. Joe Carter Jersey . Not that he was complaining. Davis had 13 points, nine rebounds and a career-high eight blocks, and the New Orleans Pelicans emphatically snapped a three-game skid with a 135-98 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Saturday night.WINNIPEG - The Winnipeg Blue Bombers are working on rebuilding their depleted receiving corps this season, but veteran Clarence Denmark says the building blocks are all there.The whole corps this year is probably one of the best since Ive been here, he said Monday after the second day of training camp.Denmark is entering his fifth season with the Bombers and led the teams receivers with 900 yards in 2013 as Terrence Edwards missed several games due to injury and the previous seasons leader, Chris Matthews, hardly played at all.It was a tough season all around for the Bombers as a series of quarterbacks failed to get the offence going and they finished last in the CFL at 3-15.As the team looked to rebuild, the Bombers traded Canadian receiver Jade Etienne to Saskatchewan for quarterback Drew Willy and Kito Poblah to the B.C. Lions for defensive back Korey Banks. On the import side, Edwards retired and Matthews moved on to the NFL.Edwards, who spent seven of his 10 CFL seasons with the Bombers, is going to be missed, said Denmark.We just have to step up and fill those shoes. Terrence is a great guy and a great teacher and just being behind him all those years and watching him, how you prepare for the game, how he is in meetings, was a good experience.To help fill the gap, the team picked up some proven import talent in free agent Nick Moore from B.C. and have other promising players in camp like six-foot-six Mario Urruttia.But they also need to bolster their Canadian talent base and head coach Mike OShea said it would be ideal to return to the same ratio they had of Canadians and imports.To have some sort of consistency in that regard would be ideal (as) it allows you to work on other areas, he said. Once again, its Day 2 of training camp andd it doesnt always work out that way. Kenny Lofton Jersey. .While he said they believe they can start two Canadian receivers, a key to maintaining that number is their ability able to function on special teams.We have to get them in a game in special teams also, he said. Special teams are a huge part of our game especially for backups — especially for Canadian backups. They need to be able to take pride in that and work and get the job done.Winnipeg already has Cory Watson and Rory Kohlert on its roster and theyve been joined at camp by prospects Taylor Renaud and Julian Feoli-Gundino. Renaud is from Winnipeg and this is his second camp. The Blue Bombers released receiver Jordan Brescacin of Tecumseh, Ont., and signed Winnipegs Brett Carter on Monday.Denmark says the competition at the receiver position is going to be tough but hes looking to crack the 1,000-yard mark this season. He knows Moore has already proven he can do that, after a breakout 2013 in B.C. that saw him hit 1,105 yards and rank third in the league.Its possible therell be two of us up there in the 1,000-yard range this year, he said.By joining the Bombers, meanwhile, Moore has reconnected with Willy and is looking forward to playing on the same team with him. They trained together, prepared for the NFL draft together and kept in touch after they went undrafted in 2009.Were going to come out and work every day and get on the same page, he said.Hes looking to build on his success in B.C., when he finally had the playing time needed to bring it all together.It felt like it was coming together and also a sense of comfortableness, he said. Being out there. Knowing the quarterback, the quarterback knowing you, knowing youre going to be at the right spot at the right time.

There is little question that Toronto Argonauts quarterback Ricky Ray has been incredibly hot of late, but is he in the zone? The numbers back up the indisputable fact that Rays play has been incredible, even by his own lofty standards. Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey . His last three outings havent been complete games for a couple of reasons. He was injured mid-way through the third quarter against Winnipeg, missed the BC game, returned for a game in Montreal where he only played the first half, then played the entire game against Edmonton. So in a little over two games of actual playing time what have the numbers been? Try 64-73 passing (87.7% completion rate), 851 yards, eight touchdowns and zero interceptions. So hes definitely in the zone. "Ive felt like Ive been there a few times", Ray told TSN.ca. "Its just when things are going well you have complete confidence and it seems like everything you see is open. Thats when youre really playing well, when you can just drop back and trust exactly what your eyes are telling you and then just let it go without any hesitation." Rays coach knows what its like to be playing at that level. When Scott Milanovich finished his career at the University of Maryland he had the NCAAs second-highest completion percentage (66.2%) in history. Hes been there. "I had a couple of pretty good games in college, but nothing consistently over a stretch of time like Ricky has," said Milanovich. "I think its a comfort level thing and a huge part of it is the fact that hes not getting hit a lot. I can just see it in his feet and just how much more comfortable he is in the pocket and how much more he trusts his protection." Chad Owens is the defending CFL Most Outstanding Player. As a returner and receiver hes been almost unstoppable at times. "Its a really good feeling. Its a feeling of I cant be stopped and you feel like every time you touch the ball its going to be a score or a big play." "It seems like the game has slowed down, but youre doing it effortlessly, youre just letting things happen." Can you be in the zone on defence? Middle linebacker Robert McCune, currently third in the CFL in tackles, says absolutely. "I get in that zone sometimes when the game slows down" said the native of Mobile, Alabama. "It helps when you just let the game come to you. Sometimes when I try too hard, thats when I make my most mistakes. You just have to play your game and relax." Khalif Mitchell has made a career trying to get offensive players out of the zone. The defensive tackle looks to his teammates to get himself in a good place. "I pretty much feed off my other guys" said Mitchell. "I understand that if were all out here and of the same accord then Ill be in the zone and then its pretty much a natural flow and not something we create artificially." Staying in the zone this week wont be easy for Ray or any of his teammates. The Calgary Stampeders are in Toronto for a Grey Cup rematch. Sacramento State 64, Cal. State Northridge 61. November 4, 2000. It was the second-highest point total in NCAA footballs modern era and amazingly it came without an overtime session. The reason this obscure college football game is noteworthy in Toronto is that the two quarterbacks were Sacramento States Ricky Ray and Cal Northridges Marcus Brady, now the Argos Offensive Coordinator. Ray passed for 344 yards and three touchdowns that day and rushed for three more himself. Brady threw for 493 yards and four majors. The game was played at Fred Anderson Field, named after the owner of the defunct CFL team the Sacramento Gold Miners. The two were asked by TSN.ca to reflect on that amazing afternoon. Ray: "That was a fun game, it was my last home game in college. The year before we went down to their place and he (Brady) lit us up pretty bad. Coming back my senior year and playing my last game at home it was nice to finally get a win against him and man, we put up some points. He put up big numbers, we were able to so the same and squeaked one out on them." Brady: "We were just going up and down the field. (Former Winnipeg star) Charles Roberts was his running back (he had 159 yards rushing and two TDs in the game). They were going down and scoring and we had to answer. We both had explosive offences and it came down to the fourth quarter. I had a 50-yard run for a touchdown and threw for four, but I threw a late interception. Ricky had three quarterback sneaks in that game and was the Conference Player of the Week even though I had better numbers than him (laughs), but they got the win so he deserved it."

Bilbaos first victory in four rounds lifted it four points clear of Real Sociedad and kept it in command of Spains last Champions League berth for next season. In contrast, Betis was left 11 points from safety after a dismal performance that at times bordered on self-destruction amid some questionable refereeing decisions. Michael Crabtree Ravens Jersey .

See the game live on TSN2 at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt. Brazilian winger Jackson is suspended for the game at Rio Tinto Stadium while Canadian midfielder Jonathan Osorio left practice early Friday, seemingly favouring his right hamstring. Manager Ryan Nelsen said Osorio has been nursing a hamstring strain. During the portion of Fridays training session open to the media, Mark Bloom was playing in place of Jackson on the right flank, with Englands Bradley Orr taking over at fullback behind him. "We dont have a great deal of options at the moment there but weve got a bit of versatility with Bloomie being able to play both positions and now Brad Orrs getting fit," said Nelsen. Jeremy Hall slotted into central midfield alongside U.S. international Michael Bradley when Osorio exited. Attacking midfielder Dwayne De Rosario remains another option — more likely playing wide left or coming on as an impact substitute — with Canadian international midfielder Issey Nakajima-Farran a newly signed, speedy asset on the flank. But Nelsen has shown faith in the 26-year-old Bloom. Toronto (2-0-0) is off to its best ever start with wins in Seattle and at home against D.C. United. But there are concerns over its depth outside the starting lineup with Nelsen looking to reinforce the 12 through 20 members of the roster. Real Salt Lake (1-0-2) has played two of its first three games on the road, with a home-and-away series with the Los Angeles Galaxy already in the books. While RSL has some injury concerns of its own, the team is a veteran outfit that is used to playing 4,500 feet above sea level. England striker Jerman Defoe says he is no stranger to playing at altitude after his experience at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. He saw the bigger challenge in the experience of Real Salt Lake. "Its going to a massive test for us to go there and try to win the game," he said. "But at the minute, were confidennt. Lamar Jackson Jersey. Everyones playing well, everyones fit. We just look forward to it." De Rosario, who helped D.C. United beat Real Salt Lake in the U.S. Open Cup final in Sandy, Utah, last season, agreed. "Its a team thats been together for quite some time. A team that has a very distinguished system and they stay true to that. And theyre very good at home." Now in its 10th MLS season, Real Salt Lake is 74-31-39 at home in regular-season league play. In its eighth MLS campaign, Torontos road record is 15-72-25. But most of Torontos past record for futility can be thrown out, with such marquee reinforcements as Defoe, Bradley, De Rosario and Brazilian striker Gilberto and goalkeeper Julio Cesar. Real Salt Lake has injury concerns up front with Robbie Findley yet to play this season and former TFC player Joao Plata sidelined due to a hamstring strain. Plata, a five-foot-two 135-pound ball of Ecuadorian energy, has been red-hot to start the season with two goals and two assists in three games. Alvaro Saborio and Olmes Garcia are expected to start at forward although Devon Sandoval could return from a foot injury. Defender Aaron Maund, another Toronto FC alumnus, and midfielder Sebastian Velasquez, are also sidelined. Jordan Allen and Kwame Watson-Siriboe are listed as questionable. RSL can still field a veteran lineup, however, led by the likes of midfielder Kyle Beckerman and goalkeeper Nick Rimando, both U.S. internationals. After playing a poor pitch at BMO Field in its home opener, Toronto wont see much of an improvement in the Rio Tinto Stadium surface. "Its in really bad shape," said Beckerman. NOTES — Toronto is 1-5-0 lifetime in Utah ... RSL edged Toronto 3-2 on a stoppage-time goal the last time the clubs met in Utah, on April 28, 2012. Only Doneil Henry, Ashtone Morgan and Quillan Roberts remain with the club from Torontos 18-man roster that day ... Nelsen says the cub has talked to Jackson about resisting the temptation to retaliate when provoked on the field.

SHANGHAI, China -- Luke Guthrie handled another day of strong wind and kept his distance in the BMW Masters with a 1-under 71, giving the American a four-shot lead going into the weekend of his first golf tournament in Asia. Brice Butler Cardinals Jersey . Guthrie never let anyone get closer than two shots at Lake Malaren on Friday, and he started to pull away with a 20-foot birdie that broke three ways on the 17th. But he misjudged the speed of the 18th green on a long chip and narrowly missed a 10-foot par putt on the final hole. That put him at 8-under 136, four shots clear of six players. Ricardo Gonzalez didnt make a bogey until the final hole and still had a 67, the lowest round of the day. Also in a tie for second were Scott Jamieson (68), Paul Casey, Thongchai Jaidee and Craig Lee, who each shot 70. Simon Dyson, also tied for second Friday, was disqualified for a rules violation that was discovered Saturday morning. In the second round, he marked his ball just beyond the cup on No. 8. As he marked it, Dyson made a quick move to tamp down a spot on the green directly in his line. That violates Rule 16-1a. The infraction was pointed out to European Tour rules officials, who spoke to Dyson. Because he did not add the two-shot penalty, he was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard. The disqualification was a big blow to the Englishman. He was No. 66 on the money list. Only the top 60 are eligible for the final event in Dubai. John Daly showed plenty of power but couldnt make a putt in his round of 74, which included a double bogey-birdie-bogey finish. He was six shots behind. For two days, Guthries first big trip in golf has been more than he could have imagined. He closed with a 64 in Las Vegas to tie for fifth and flew straight to Shanghai, leaving him just enough time to get over jet lag and see the Jack Nicklaus design. He didnt bring enough warm clothes, but at least he brought his game. He received a sponsors exemption more than a month ago, wanting to broaden his experience and learn to become a global golfer. It already is paying off. The relentless wind brought a drop in temperatures, yet Guthrie played the round in short sleeves. "I should have looked (the weather) up about Shanghai before I came here," he said. "I only have one sweater here. Im wearing blue and pink today, so Im kind of out there already. I didnt want to put a green sweater on top of it. So I just dealt with being a little cold." There has been nothing cold about his game. Guthrie made his first bogey of the tournament with a tee shot that left him against the lip of a fairway bunker on No. 5, and he had to knock it out to the fairway. He dropped another shot on the 10th, and hit a poor shot that left him in an impossible spot on the 12th. Everything else, however, was solid. He rolled in a 15-foot birdie on the 11th, got up-and-down behind the green on the par-5 15th for a birdie and hit 6-iron into 20 feet on the 17th. Two more days like this and he could be staying in China longer than he planned. The BMW Masters is the start of "The Final Series" on the European Tour, four tournaments with at least $7 million in prize money that concludes the Race to Dubai. Guthrie, coming off his rookie season on the U.S. PGA Tour, has no stake in that. A win, however, would make him eligible for the HSBC Champions next week in Shanghai, a World Golf Championship that counts toward the FedEx Cup on the U.S. circuit. Only 18 players in the 77-man field were under par, a testament to the tough conditions. Rafa Cabrera-Bello didnt expect to be among them until he ran off five straight birdies late in his round for a 68, leaving him five shots behind. Ian Poulter got back in the game until two late bogeys forced him to settle for a 69. Poulter was at 1-under 143, along with Rory McIlroy, who bogeyed the last hole for a 72, and Lee Westwood (71). Graeme McDowell, in his first event since getting married at the end of September, was trying to push his way up the leaderboard until he bogeyed three of his last five. "Its been very tough the last two days in the wind," Casey said. "These are not conditions I expected or wanted. But it makes a very good, difficult golf course even more so. Its a great test of golf, which is I guess what we want. This is the Final Series for us in Europe. Its meant to be difficult." Custom Arizona Cardinals Jerseys . -- Washington Capitals forward Brooks Laich is expected to miss the rest of the regular season after having an operation on a groin muscle. Andre Smith Jersey . Although head coach Randy Carlyle jokingly wondered how much actual training Bolland got done while in London. "I dont know how much training goes on when you go back to the junior team that you played for so I wouldnt read too much into that," laughed Carlyle after the Maple Leafs were put through an up-tempo practice that concluded with a 10-minute bag skate on Thursday.ST. LOUIS - At the start of training camp, Austin Davis was simply trying to secure a roster spot. Now, hes the St. Louis Rams starting quarterback.Coach Jeff Fisher announced Wednesday that Davis will be behind centre for the rest of the season. Previously, Fisher insisted that Shaun Hill would return as starter as soon as he was completely healed from the quad injury.I think thats why you do take the cliche approach of work hard every day and take every rep like its your last, because you never know whats going to happen in this game with injuries and different opportunities and things like that, Davis said. Yeah, its a bit of a wild ride, but at the end of the day, this team is looking for me to lead them and Im up for that challenge and excited about it.The 25-year-old Davis has thrown for 754 yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions, while completing 72 per cent of his passes since taking over for Hill midway through the first game of the season.Davis 93.1 quarterback rating is ninth-highest among NFC quarterbacks.I think its important that you avoid the questions, you avoid the controversies of things like that, Fisher said. And yes, I did say that Shaun was our quarterback. My job is to make the right decisions and I felt that I was going to go this way pretty much after the Tampa Bay game based on what I saw, and then the Dallas game was just what really convinced us as a staff and myself. And hhe deserves it. Brice Butler Jersey. He deserves an opportunity.Davis, who is in his third year, was actually cut by the Rams last season. He was brought back after Sam Bradford suffered a torn ACL.After the Rams drafted Garrett Gilbert in the off-season, a position for Davis was far from guaranteed. But Davis outplayed Gilbert in the preseason and injuries to Bradford and Hill led to the opportunity.Rams wide receiver Kenny Britt likes Davis attitude.The one thing that Ive seen from his first start is hes more confident in himself in the huddle, Britt said. Hes taking command in the huddle. Hes telling us what he wants in certain looks and certain routes and thats something that you want to see out of any veteran quarterback and right now hes looking like a five or six year vet.Hill seemed poised to be the Rams starter after Bradford re-injured his ACL, but has not seen the field since injuring his quad in the first half of the season opener.Obviously, its frustrating, but I understand it, Hill said. Fishers got a decision to make and he made a decision for what he felt was best for the team. Obviously, the team comes first. Im a professional and Ill come to work every day and try to help this team the best that I can.NOTES: Hill (thigh) was a full participant in practice, while Tavon Austin (knee) was limited. Trumaine Johnson (knee), Barrett Jones (back) and Brandon McGee (foot) did not participate.

VANCOUVER -- Nicklas Jensen is likely not being sent back to the minors any time soon. Dave Henderson Jersey . The Vancouver Canucks rookie helped keep his teams flickering playoff hopes alive Wednesday night as he scored the only goal his team needed in a 2-0 victory over the Nashville Predators. It was Jensens third goal in four games, and also just the third of his NHL career. The Danish rookie has only played seven games this season since being promoted from the Utica Comets of the American Hockey League because of injuries to forwards Daniel Sedin and Ryan Kesler. "Its huge," said Jensen of his high-scoring ways. "Its tough to know what to expect when you get up here. The way weve been playing, its been really well. "So Im happy with it. We just need to keep it going and play this way." Jensen and Alex Edler scored one minute 13 seconds apart in the third period to break open a scoreless affair. The Canucks (32-30-10) posted their fourth win in seven games, but remained in 10th place while pulling within three points of eighth-place Phoenix. The win was timely because the Canucks remained a point up on the Winnipeg Jets, who beat Colorado earlier Wednesday night. Nashville (29-31-10) is in 12th place, dropping five points behind the Jets. Vancouver goaltender Eddie Lack made 30 saves for his fourth shutout of the season -- tops among NHL rookies -- as the Predators enjoyed a 30-22 edge in shots. "Im the first one to say I havent got to my best games so far and it feels good coming out with a shutout tonight for sure," said Lack, who has inherited the No. 1 role following Roberto Luongos trade to Florida. Jensen finally opened the scoring as he picked up a loose puck while Nashville defenceman Seth Jones was checking Henrik Sedin, and then roofed a shot over Nashville goaltender Carter Huttons outstretched glove. "Henrik got the puck," said Jensen. "It was kind of scrambling and bobbling on his stick and he somehow he found a way to slide it over to me, and I just tried to release it and put it on net. "The guy (Henrik Sedin) can do a lot of things a lot of guys cant do. Thats also why hes so unique and one of the best players in the world. "When I came up here and heard that I could play with him, I knew I was gonna be ready." The 21-year-old Jensen, Vancouvers top draft choice in 2011 (29th overall), is proving himself at the NHL level in his first full season in North America. He was returned to the Ontario Hockey Leagues Oshawa Generals after he was drafted, and then split last season between a Swedish team and Vancouvers former Chicago Wolves AHL affiliate. Along he way, he has battled injuries and inconsistency. But he is proving himself to be a quick offensive study, with only nine NHL career games under his skates, after dressing for two last season. He is also impressing Canucks coach John Tortorella with his two-way play. "For a young guy, his positioning with the puck and without the puck, its really good," said Tortorella. The demanding Canucks coach said Jensen has thrived after starting slowly after his promotion. "I heard him say something where he really struggled early on, which he did, and then he just started getting some puck luck after that, and it just relaxed him," said Tortorella. "He doesnt think about it. He just plays." Edler gave the Canucks a 2-0 lead on a power play as he slid a slapshot between Huttons outstretched leg and the right post. The goal came only five seconds after Nashville defenceman Victor Bartley was penalized for interference. The puck went in while the infraction was being announced over the public address system. The Canucks were playing their first game back home after a four-game road trip. The Predators completed their third straight series of back-to-back games within nine days. Accordingly, neither team could muster a goal in the first two periods. Tortorella said fatigue took a toll on his club. "I dont think we played that well in the first period. I dont think we won many battles. I thought, in the second period, we started winning some battles. a Going into the third period (it was) next goal wins." The Canucks did not get a shot on goal until 9:27 of the first period. Vancouver then enjoyed a spurt of offence, dominating with teams at full strength, but could not be Hutton. The Preds controlled play for the rest of the period, but could not beat Lack. The Canucks goaltender denied Gabriel Bourque from close range following an odd-man rush. Near the end of the period, Lack stopped Patric Hornqvist twice on one-timers that occurred within a few seconds of each other. In the second period, Hutton stopped Edler as he came out of the penalty box, took a pass and rushed down the right wing. Moments later, Hutton foiled Dan Hamhuis on a wraparound and Alex Burrows on the ensuing rebound. "I thought it was a pretty even game," said Nashville coach Barry Trotz. "Both teams had some looks and were just not scoring easy right now. The Preds were shut out for the ninth time this season as their playoff hopes grew slimmer. "Weve got to get some goals for our goaltender," said Trotz. Notes: The Canucks lost Burrows for a while after Jensens goal as he appeared to be slashed on the left hand by Preds captain Shea Weber as the puck went in. Burrowss glove came off on the play, but he was able to come back. Tortorella said Burrows will be evaluated Thursday. a Nashville centre Paul Gaustad was injured when Canucks defenceman Edler checked on a breakaway and proceeded to fall on him in the first period. Gaustad went to the dressing room and did not return. a Tortorella said defenceman Chris Tanev will be out three to four weeks with a broken finger suffered while blocking a shot Monday in Tampa Bay. If the Canucks miss the playoffs, he could be done for the season. No updates were given on injured centre Ryan Kesler and winger Daniel Sedin, who remain out indefinitely with undisclosed ailments. a Canucks centre Brad Richardson returned after missing seven games with an undisclosed upper-body injury. a Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis and his family donated $55,000 in conjunction with a local radio station to the teams charitable childrens foundation. Rollie Fingers Jersey . Dirk Nowitzki scored 25 points, Shawn Marion had 22 and the Mavericks beat undermanned Philadelphia 124-112 Friday night, handing the 76ers their 10th straight loss. Jed Lowrie Jersey . - Derek Wolfe says hes finally healthy after suffering a seizure in November that doctors now believe was related to the spinal cord injury he suffered in the preseason.NEW YORK -- Brooklyns Jason Kidd has won Eastern Conference coach of the month honours for March, becoming just the second NBA coach to win twice in his rookie season. Kidd was honoured Tuesday after the Nets went 12-4 while playing all month without starting centre Kevin Garnett. He also won the award for January, joining Chicagos Tom Thibodeau as the only two-time winners iin their first season since the league began giving monthly coaching awards in 1982-83. Brett Anderson Jersey. He has led the Nets from a 10-21 start to the brink of the playoffs entering their game against Houston on Tuesday.

TORONTO - The final score was 4-1 for Toronto but there were several different twists to the storyline before the Maple Leafs put the Calgary Flames away with two empty-net goals Tuesday night. Nick Ahmed Jersey .Leading 1-0 after the first, Toronto went into overdrive in a second period that saw it build its lead to 2-0 while outshooting the Flames 13-4.Calgary woke up in the third period — its 39 goals and plus-23 differential in the third led the league going into the game — and cut the margin to 2-1 less than four minutes in. The Flames outshot the Leafs 16-8 in the period, mounting a comeback that finally faltered with Jonas Hiller out for the extra attacker.Through it all, Jonathan Bernier held firm in the Toronto goal with 32 saves.Bernier came up with big saves at the right time, Calgary coach Bob Hartley said. We knew what to expect because hes been real hot in the last past games.I thought we played a decent first period, a great third period. But on the road against a team that is playing really well you need a full 60-minute effort.Our second period wasnt good enough, said Flames forward Matt Stajan.Toronto coach Randy Carlyle understandably had a different view of the timeline.The second period was probably one of the best periods weve played this year, he said.But it didnt stick. Carlyle said his team sat back in the third, stopped hitting and had to chase the action.James van Riemsdyk scored the winner early in the second period, traditionally a fertile time for the Leafs. Toronto came into the game with a league-leading 39 goals in the second.Peter Holland opened the scoring for Toronto, which got empty-net goals from Phil Kessel and Mike Santorelli. The Maple Leafs, who are now 12-0-0 when scoring first, wrapped up a five-game homestand at 4-1-0 before 19,122 at the Air Canada Centre.Markus Granlund scored for the Flames, who played well in the first period but trailed 2-0 going into the third.Calgary, which came into the game 9-0-1 after a loss, outshot Toronto 33-29.The Leafs (15-9-3) are now 6-1-1 since a pair of lopsided losses to Buffalo and Nashville.Asked if the 9-2 Nashville loss on Nov. 18 was a turning point, Carlyle said: I knew it couldnt get much worse.

The Swiss goalie then stopped Clarkson on a rush.A penalty for too many men on the ice then cost the Leafs as Granlund beat his man and tucked a fine pass from Mark Giordano past Bernier to cut the lead to 2-1 at 3:48.

Canada opened Saturdays play with a 52-0 thumping of Japan, and followed with a 28-12 win over France. That was enough to guarantee them a spot in the quarter-finals of the Cup competition.

Philip Mack converted his own try in the first half to give Canada an early lead, but Tom Powell replied with a converted try in the second to draw England level. Both Canada and England, which is currently fourth in the IRB Sevens World Series overall standings, finished with eight points in three matches, but the Canadians took top spot in the pool with a superior point differential. "I thought we had chances to score but so did they," Canada coach Geraint John said of England. "Its important for us to top the group. Weve come close in recent tournaments but we have shown the depth here, as well as the big players stepping up." Canada will play Kenya in Sundays quarter-final.
