TORONTO – Jonathan Bernier had made a mere 54 starts in the NHL before he joined the Maple Leafs this past summer.   "I played a lot in junior, played a lot in the AHL, but last three years I didnt play much, so I kind of forgot how to prepare myself," said Bernier in conversation with the Leaf Report. "I forgot how hard it is to be ready every night."   He is rapidly rediscovering what it takes.   Making his third straight start in a rare Sunday night affair, the 25-year-old stopped 41 shots as the Leafs picked up back-to-back wins for the first time in three weeks, topping the Hurricanes 5-2 at the ACC.   Bernier has sizzled with a .949 save percentage in his last five games, settling into a groove in the Toronto crease. He appears firmly on track to start in Wednesdays Winter Classic.   "Thats up to Randy," said Bernier with a smile, now ranked eighth in the NHL with a .930 save percentage this season. "Obviously, itd be a really nice experience, but like Ive said since the beginning, you cant control what Randy is going to decide. Thats up to him."   Bernier spoke earlier in the year about the mental and physical preparation required to play near-nightly in an NHL crease. Having tended goal as the back-up to Jonathan Quick for years with the Kings, he had forgotten the formula it took for success.   With 23 starts already as a Leaf, he is picking it up once more.   "Youve got to learn when to push yourself in practice or when to rest yourself, all those little things; when to work in the gym, when not," he explained. "You dont want to overwork, but at the same time you need those good practices to get back in the game and feel good about yourself."   He is admittedly better prepared for the workload, one that is considerably more taxing night to night than what he experienced in Los Angeles. Sunday marked the fifth time he faced at least 40 shots this season. Its just another step in the learning process.   "Im sure Ill be a different goalie or different person in two years from now," he said. "I never really played that much in this league so far. Its all new for me."   Five Points   1. Bozaks Impactful Return   Playing his first game since Dec. 3, returning from an oblique injury, Tyler Bozak made a splash with three assists against Carolina. The 27-year-old had a hand in both Phil Kessel goals – Kessels team-leading 19th and 20th – adding his 10th assist this season on Paul Rangers second goal of the year.   Bozak, who entered the night averaging upwards of 21 minutes a game, was held to 17-plus on Sunday night, his ice-time managed after more than three weeks on long-term injured reserve.   That will change in the near future according to Carlyle, who relies on the fifth-year centre in all situations.   "We think a lot of a player by the number of minutes he plays," said Carlyle. "Usually thats a good indication of how coaches feel about players."   The Leafs coach spoke of Bozaks intangibles.   "Hes a smart hockey player," Carlyle continued. "He does a lot of little things that dont get noticed on the score-sheet and he puts himself in a position to be the safety valve for the other two players hes playing with."   Alongside Kessel and James van Riemsdyk, Bozak and the Toronto top line enjoyed a flurry of opportunities against the Hurricanes, including a handful of breakaways for Kessel, but also had their issues in the defensive zone, being outshot by the trio of Jordan Staal, Alexander Semin and Nathan Gerbe.   Gerbe scored Carolinas first goal of the game with the line out on the ice.   Prior to the game, van Riemsdyk spoke of Bozaks ability to impact the trio as a "safety valve" defensively.   "Were usually going against other teams top offensive units and hes really good at competing with them down-low, getting the puck out of the zone," said van Riemsdyk. "When he does that…it gives all of us more energy to play offence. When youre not getting hemmed in as much and youre good defensively. you have more energy to expend on offence."   Bozak now has eight points in the past five games hes played, also winning 14 of 26 draws on this night.   2. Face-off Work   Carlyle stressed the need for increased competitiveness in the face-off circle prior to Sundays game and he got it. The Leafs won 60 per cent of their draws against the Hurricanes, led by Jay McClement, who emerged victorious on 15 of 24 face-offs.   "If youre not having success against the individual, then Im about being competitive and I believe that our team has to become more competitive in those small areas," said Carlyle earlier in the day. "When theres a 50-50 opportunity to come up with the puck, I think we have to show more tenacity, more bite, and what it comes down to, its more competitive spirit."   Jerred Smithson, reassigned to the Marlies on Saturday, recently offered a similar sentiment in conversation with the Leaf Report.   "Its just wanting to win the battle more than that other guy," said Smithson, who held a 59 per cent mark in 17 games with the Leafs. "Thats the biggest thing for me, anyway. You know theres always different techniques, but just the will and the compete going into the circle and wanting it just that much more."   Outside of Smithson and McClement, Toronto centres have all dipped under the 50 per cent mark. Even Bozak, long the teams best face-off man, has fallen to 46 per cent in 17 games this season.    Centre Face-off Percentage Jerred Smithson 58.6 Jay McClement 54.9 Tyler Bozak 46.6 Trevor Smith 45.2 Peter Holland 45.2 Nazem Kadri 42.1 Dave Bolland 41.3   The Leafs, at 47.2 per cent this season, sit 25th overall on the draw.   3. Opposing Strategy   Despite beating the Hurricanes handily, the Leafs did not play what could be considered a smooth game. Carlyle felt his team was "overmatched in a lot of areas" and were outshot 43-27 and out-attempted 75-49.   The Leafs coach has identified the formula of opposing teams.   "They got to the red-line and they dumped the puck in," he said of the Hurricanes. "That seems to be the mandate for teams coming in here: you try to force us to play as much defence [as possible] in our own zone."   Carlyle said opponents have been intent on forcing his team to recover pucks down low and along the walls in the Toronto zone, pinching their defencemen where possible for added support.   "Its no secret," he said. "We havent been able to hand that or manage the game properly in that area and weve got to get better at it."   4. Best Period as a Leaf?   David Clarkson left the bench for the final 13 minutes of the second period. The 29-year-old required stitches for a gash on his elbow. He returned a different player for the final frame.   "Probably the best period of hockey hes played for us," said Carlyle of Clarksons third period.   Employed in checking line duties alongside McClement and Nik Kulemin for the past five games, Clarkson seems to be gradually finding a role with the Leafs. On Sunday, his units duties included a showdown with Eric Staal, Jeff Skinner and Tuomo Ruutu.   And though they were outshot, the trio managed to keep Carolinas top line off the scoresheet.   "We feel confident that we can put that line on the ice against any line weve played so far," Carlyle said. "So when you have that type of confidence in the group, the sum of the three, its a good sign for the coaching staff. We feel confident in those players. And if you notice their minutes, they get to play a lot."   5. Hollands Opportunity   With Bozak back from a 12-game stint on injured reserve and a checking unit of Clarkson, Kulemin and McClement remaining intact, Peter Holland moved down the lineup Sunday into the fourth line centre position.   The shift wasnt because of performance.   Holland has made good use of an opportunity presented by the teams injury troubles. He entered the evening with eight points in the previous 10 games.   "I thought Ive come in and Ive gotten stronger pretty much on a consistent basis, game in, game out," said the 22-year-old, shooting a blistering 23 per cent on six goals this season. "Whether Im playing five minutes or 15 minutes, I think Im just trying to do my best to earn the respect of my coaches and the rest of my teammates. Just do the little things right; winning battles; winning face-offs; being on the defensive side of pucks. I think when Ive done a good job of that the offence has come, so I just need to stick with that."   Holland, who played only eight minutes against Carolina, is tied for third on the team in December scoring.   Stats-Pack   .949 – Save percentage for Jonathan Bernier over the past five games.   43-72 – Leafs in the face-off circle against the Hurricanes.   17:14 – Ice-time for Tyler Bozak in his return to the lineup against Carolina.   6 – Seasons with 20-plus goals for Phil Kessel.   8 – Points in the last five games for Bozak, who had three assists against the Hurricanes.   8 – Goals from the Toronto defence in the past 12 games. Along with Ranger, Dion Phaneuf scored his fourth marker of the season on Sunday.   Special Teams Capsule   PP: 0-2 Season: 22.3% (5th)   PK: 1-2 Season: 77.5% (27th)   Quote of the Night   "I wasnt waving the pompoms to be involved with it to start with."   -Randy Carlyle, on the upcoming Winter Classic.   Up Next   The Leafs face the Red Wings in Wednesdays Winter Classic. <a href="http://www.shopbroncosus.com/women-tj-ward-broncos-jersey-sale/">T.J.

The Eastern final, however, still rankles Toronto quarterback Ricky Ray. One of the two will have something to celebrate Thursday night as the CFL hands out its annual awards. Cornish is up for both Most Outstanding Player, against Ray, and Outstanding Canadian, against Winnipeg linebacker Henoc Muamba. Cornishs Stampeders were ousted 35-13 by Saskatchewan last weekend while Rays Argonauts were bounced 36-24 by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. For Ray, the scab is still fresh. "It is tough because youve got to wait six months until you get to really put it out of your system by moving on to the next year," he said of the pain. "Those are the games that are always going to haunt you a little bit. "Even losing the Grey Cup in Edmonton my first year (in 2002), I still have bad memories from that game. Even though Ive been back and been able to be on the victorious side, I still have bad thoughts about that game. Im sure this will continue to give me bad thoughts throughout my career." Cornish is past the pain. "I sort of left it back in Calgary," he said Wednesday night in a pre-awards availability. "It would have been harder to swallow if it was a closer game, But the way we lost and having seven turnovers, its not hard to be able to walk away from a game like that and just forget about it. We didnt play Stampeder football. Theres no use in holding onto it." Cornish led the league in rushing with a Canadian-record 1,813 yards. The 29-year-old from New Westminster, B.C., was also No. 1 in yards from scrimmage (2,157) and TDs (14). When healthy, Ray was like a metronome with a league-record 77.2 per cent completion average and just two interceptions in 303 pass attempts. The 34-year-old from California missed six starts due to injury and was a healthy scratch in Torontos regular-season finale He was in a remarkable groove for most of the season. "It felt like guys were open. I was just dropping back and finding guys open," Ray said. "Things were just clicking ... Its a good feeliing to have.dddddddddddd" But the finale to the season inexplicably went south after a fine first half against Hamilton. "They just came out and played better. Obviously I didnt play good enough to win," he said. "Thats what you think about when you lose. You think about all the plays you wish you could have back to do over again. Maybe make a better throw, a better read." Ray was offered the chance to take in the championship game as a spectator but declined. "It would be tough to watch the game live and sit in the cold. Id just think about last week and wanting to be here. So I chose not to." Ray and Cornish exchanged compliments in their separate media scrums. "Cornish has been one of the best, most consistent guys weve had in this league over the last few years," said Ray. "Just the numbers hes been able to put up on a game-by-game basis, add them up throughout the year and its pretty special." Said Cornish: "Rickys performance this year is going to go down in the record books for his effectiveness on every play. Ive been saying for years Ricky Ray is one of the best players in this league. For me, not even winning, just being up against him is one of the biggest honours Ive had." Ray may well be hurt by his occasional inactivity. "I guess the big question is did I play enough," he said. Tight end Tony Gabriel (1978, Ottawa) and quarterback Russ Jackson (1963, 66, 69) are the only Canadians to have won Most Outstanding Player honours. Cornish is one of four Stampeder nominees, joining defensive end Charleston Hughes (defensive player), centre Brett Jones (rookie) and kicker Rene Paredes (special-teams player). Brendon LaBatte of the Saskatchewan Roughriders was the West Divisions top lineman. The other East Division finalists are Montreal linebacker Chip Cox (defensive player), Toronto centre Jeff Keeping (lineman), Hamilton Tiger-Cats running back C.J. Gable (rookie) and Marc Beswick (special-teams player). The awards are voted on by the Football Reporters of Canada and the leagues eight head coaches. ' ' '

GLEN COVE, N.Y. -- Kristen Gillman rallied to win the U.S. Womens Amateur on Sunday, beating Canadas Brooke Mackenzie Henderson 2 up in the 36-hole final at Nassau Country Club. "I dont think its sunk in yet, but its just awesome," said Gillman, a 16-year-old junior at Lake Travis High School in Austin, Texas, who is set to attend the University of Alabama in 2016. Gillman lost the 25th and 26th to fall 3 down. She won the short, par-4 27th with a birdie, cut it to 1 down with a birdie win on the par-4 30th and pulled even with another birdie win on the par-4 32nd. "I just keep fighting because I didnt want to leave here without the ultimate prize," Gillman said. "I just kept fighting." Gillman took the lead with a birdie win on the par-5 33rd, matched the 16-year-old Henderson with pars on the 34th and 35th holes and took the par-4 36th with a birdie after hitting a 9-iron to 3 feet. "Ball-striking has always been a strength," Gillman said. "I mean, I hit a lot of fairways and a lot of greens, and then throughout the last year my ball-striking has gone a lot better, and Ive just been able to hit it closer to where I can make the putts." Gillman birdied five of the last 10 holes. "She was throwing darts and that definitely affected my game a little bit," Henderson said. "I was trying to match it. A couple holes I was able to and others I just didnt." Gillman, coming off an 11-stroke victory last week in the Junior PGA Championship, Henderson, from Smith Falls, Ontario, failed in her bid to become the third Canadian winner in tournament history. Marlene Stewart accomplished the feat in 1956, and Cathy Sherk did it in 1978. "Well, its been a great week," Henderson said. "I really enjoyed it. I spent a whole seven days here, which is awesome. Coming into the week if they said, Would you like to play in the finals? I would have said yes for sure. I definitely will learn a lot from this and take away a lot from this week. "Definitely, I wanted to get my name on the trophy, but thats not necessarily success for me. I played well and I had a lot of fun this week." <a href="http://www.blakebortlesjersey.com/authentic-allen-robinson-jaguars-jersey.html">Allen Robinson Jersey</a>.

Corinna Schumacher spoke out Tuesday for the first time since her husbands Dec. 29 accident in the French Alps. In a statement, she said: "Its very important to me that you ease the burden on the doctors and the hospital so that they can do their work in peace." She asked the international media who have gathered at the hospital in Grenoble to "please also leave oour family alone.dddddddddddd" The 45-year-old Schumacher has been in a medically induced coma since last week, after he hit his head on a rock skiing at the Meribel resort.

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Malcolm Brogdon scored 23 points and No. 6 Virginia claimed its first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament title since 1976 by beating No. 7 Duke 72-63 on Sunday. Tournament MVP Joe Harris added 15 points and hit the backbreaking 3-pointer with just under 2 minutes remaining for the top-seeded Cavaliers (28-6). They shot 45 per cent, pestered the Blue Devils into 38 per cent shooting and used a late 12-3 run to pull away and claim the second ACC tournament title in school history. Jabari Parker scored 23 points on 9-of-24 shooting for the third-seeded Blue Devils (26-8), who were making their 31st appearance in the championship game but were denied their ACC-record 20th title. Anthony Gill added 12 points and was 10 of 17 from the free-throw line for Virginia. Duke as a team was just 7 of 11 from the line. The Cavaliers came to Greensboro off of their first outright regular-season title since 1981, and were trying to do something not even Ralph Sampson could do. It had been a long time -- 38 years -- since Wally Walker led Virginia to its only previous ACC tournament title. Now that trophy will have some company. With its "pack line" defence clicking and holding Duke 13 points below its scoring average, Virginia was in control for most of the day, yet could never get any separation until the final 2 1/2 minutes. Akil Mitchell hit a shot to make it 61-57, then stripped Parker at the other end to set up Harris wide-open 3 in transition that extended the lead to seven and had Dukes Rodney Hood fuming. Harris gave Duke a final chance when he rushed up a shot and Quinn Cook countered with a 3 with 1 1/2 minutes left to pull the Blue Devils back within four. Brogdon then drove through the Duke defence for a momentum-shifting layup that made it 66-60 with just over a minute to play and caused Duke assistant Jeff Capel to tellingly slump back on the bench in exasperation. Cook missed a short jumper before Brogdon hit six of eight free throws in the final minute to help the Cavaliers pull away. Hood finished with 13 points on 4-of-12 shooting and Amile Jefferson added 11 for Duke. This was a one-possession game throughout the second half until Mitchells tip-in with 5:10 left pushed Virginias lead to 57-53. Parker missed three shots on Dukes next possession, then picked up his fourth foul with 3:53 left and Gill hit two free throws to put the Cavaliers up by six. Virginia was one of the few opponents which found a way to slow Parker, holding him to eight points on 3-of-11 shooting in the regular-season meeting -- a four-point Duke win that came down to the final seconds. With Mitchell keying the defensive effort on him, Parker was just 2 of 10 in the first half. Then he got hot midway through the second half and single-handedly kept Duke in the game, reeling off seven straight points for his team in a 90-second span. He went coast-to-coast and threw down a one-handed dunk on London Perrantes, hit a 3-pointer from the wing to briefly give Duke a one-point lead and added a jumper off a spin move with 8 1/2 minutes remaining. Mitchell finished with 15 rebounds for Virginia, which led 28-25 at the end of a physical, intense first half notable for its low shooting percentages -- and a technical foul on Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski. Official Jamie Luckie hit Coach K with a T with 2:07 left in the half when Krzyzewski, with his back to the court, tossed his dry-erase marker toward his bench while coming out of a timeout. There were plenty of reasons for Duke to be frustrated, yet the Blue Devils managed to keep themselves in the game despite a rough first half from its two best players: Parker and Hood were a combined 4 of 18 from the field. Parker hit a point-blank shot while falling down with just under 16 minutes left to put Duke up 34-33 -- its first lead since the opening minute. Brogdon snatched the lead right back with a jumper on Virginias next trip down the court, and it stayed tight the rest of the way until the Cavaliers late surge. <a href="http://www.shopbroncosus.com/women-karl-mecklenburg-broncos-jersey-sale/">Karl Mecklenburg Jersey</a>.

Mason has been sidelined for a week because of an undisclosed upper-body injury after he was knocked over and hit his head on the ice against Pittsburgh. He and the Flyers have declined to say whether the goalie sustained a concussion. Mason was back at practice with his teammates at Madison Square Garden on Saturday after working out alone Friday, but wore down near the end of the 45-minute session. After he spoke with coach Craig Berube and general manager Paul Holmgren, it was decided that Mason would sit out again Sunday. "For the most part, I felt pretty solid," Mason said in the cramped dressing room. "Im getting better every day, but I wont be playing." Again declining to reveal what was ailing him, Mason said whatever the problem was became an issue in the final 10 minutes of practice. Mason was down on his knees in a low crouch with his head down while Berube addressed the team at centre ice. "We decided that we needed to give it a little more time before I get back in there," Mason said. Mason wont serve as Emerys backup Sunday, so Cal Heeter -- who wasnt at practice -- will have to be summoned back from the AHL. Mason is hopeful to play in Game 3 on Tuesday in Philadelphia. "I am going to make that my goal and make sure Im getting enough rest as possible to make sure that when I do get back in I am 100 per cent and ready to help the team rather than be a liability," he said. "Were doing everything that we can to make sure that were treating it the proper way." The Rangers took to the Garden ice about 90 minutes before the Flyers and then fielded questions about how different it would be facing the right-handed catching Mason as opposed to Emerys left glove hand. Now that they wont have to adjust to a new goalie, the Rangers can focus on trying to repeat their shutdown effort of Game 1 when they limited the Flyers to 15 shots and earned a 4-1 victory with three third-period goals. &quuot;We know our game plan works if we all buy into it and we all do the same things," Rangers forward Rick Nash said.dddddddddddd The Rangers carry a nine-game home winning streak over the Flyers into Game 2 -- including a 3-0 mark this season. Whether the location has anything to do with it or not, they have kept Philadelphia captain Claude Giroux without a shot in the past two games at MSG. New York has outscored Philadelphia 35-10 during the winning streak and allowed two goals or fewer in each of the nine games. "Weve got to take what they give us," Giroux said. "Whatever the play is, we obviously dont want to turn it over against these guys. Theyre pretty good on the rush, so weve got to make sure we play our game. "When we win battles, our scoring chances will go higher." Giroux said he isnt feeling any negative pressure to perform. "You want to be in this position," he said. "You want to be in the playoffs. You want to be in charge, and you want to be the one making the difference. Thats the best part about the playoffs." Rangers coach Alain Vigneault appeared relaxed and in a good mood during his media session. He wouldnt say if he would make any lineup changes for Sunday, but after his club limited Philadelphia to four offensive zone faceoffs in the series opener, no major adjustments seem necessary yet. "This is where we have to realize that the level is going to go way higher, and we cant get caught resting on Game 1," Rangers forward Brad Richards said. The Flyers are ready, too, even if they havent won at the Garden in over three years. "Weve got to come out with the attitude that we came here for a split and bring the momentum after a Game 2 win back to Philly," Flyers forward Scott Hartnell said. "Its awesome. Its MSG. Its playoff time. From the national anthem to the puck drop -- even when they score, and that stupid goal song that they sing, its pretty cool. "Youve got to enjoy it. Obviously, we dont want to hear that song four times (Sunday), but weve got to be jacked up and ready to roll." ' ' '

CLEVELAND -- Johnny Football has some NFL money to rub between his fingers. Johnny Manziel agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, becoming the fourth of the teams six draft picks to do so. Terms were not immediately available. The former Heisman Trophy winner will enter training camp next month as Clevelands No. 2 quarterback behind veteran Brian Hoyer, who has been limited during off-season practices while recovering from off-season knee surgery Browns coach Mike Pettine has stressed that Manziel has some catching up to do, but has made it clear that Hoyers lead was not "insurmountable." The Browns moved up in last months draft to select the popular and polarizing Manziel with the No. 22 overall pick. Manziel rubbed his fingers together when he walked onto the stage during the draft, his signature "money" gesture that has endeared him to some fans and annoyed others critical of his reputation for partying. Manziel went 20-6 in two seasons at Texas A&M, where he became the first freshman to win the Heisman and earned the "Johnny Football" nickname for his dynamic playmaking abilities.

Manitobas Jeff Stoughton and B.C.s John Morris won their final round-robin games Thursday night to finish the Tim Hortons Brier preliminary robin at 9-2. Albertas Kevin Koe sits at 9-1 with only one game left Friday morning, after a 9-6 win over Prince Edward Island Thursday afternoon. If he wins Friday, the final three in order will be Alberta, Manitoba and B.C. All thats up for grabs is the fourth and final playoff spot. Saskatchewan and Quebec, at 6-4, are leading the race but Newfoundland and New Brunswick are hanging in at 6-5. Saskatchewan and New Brunswick play Friday morning. "Theres still some hope," Quebec skip Jean-Michel Menard said of his chances to reach the three vs. four playoff game, although he has to face Alberta. One scenario could even see four teams needing to work through tiebreakers Friday, if both Saskatchewan and Quebec lose. "If both of the teams lose theres four teams at 6-5, which looks like a messy tiebreaker, so hopefully we dont have to go through that," Menard said. Saskatchewans Steve Laycock knows his path to the playoffs. "Win our last and either get some help from Alberta or play a tiebreaker," said Laycock. Morris said they will be happy to get into the playoffs through the three vs. four game. He got passed by Manitoba Thursday morning when he lost 7-6 to Stoughton in an extra end. "Were prepared to go through the three-four game were prepared to go to the one-two game, it doesnt matter," he said after his final game at night. "If we have to play a few extra games in this spiel, well get our moneys worth." Stoughton noted the strange way the tiebreaker system works that could actually change the order if Alberta loses to Quebec Friday. B.C. would move into top spot leaving Alberta in second and Stoughton in third. "Its kind of interesting, I mean Koe can actually pick who hes going to play," said the Manitoba skip and three-time Brier winner. He admitted that isnt a likely outcome, since Koe will be trying hard to win to get hammer and choice of rocks going into the page playofffs.dddddddddddd Manitoba gave up three in the first end to Ontario Thursday night but quickly gained control again to come back and win 8-6. "It seems like the theme of the week but year. It was well played again, he makes what, a double raise double? There was nothing we could do about it." In his afternoon game, Koe had a similar experience. He started with a big four in the first end and a deuce in three but gave up a single and a three to keep the Islanders close. They even managed the rare occurrence at this Brier of a steal against Koe. "We got up early and then I just threw one bad shot and gave up a three ender (and) after that they started making a lot of shots," he said. "We definitely could have made it easier on ourselves." But with a win Friday in their final game against Quebec, he gets hammer and choice of rocks for the one vs. two playoff. Its an experience Koe says he has never had, either in 2010 when he won the Brier or in 2012 when he came second. "Itll be a different feeling, not having our backs against the wall," Koe said. Stoughton started the Brier with four wins -- though none were decisive -- before losing to Alberta and Quebec. He admitted both he and third John Mead needed to pick up their game. The Thursday morning game wasnt mistake-free for Manitoba or B.C., but the last and most costly miss was made by the hometown favourites. After exchanging deuces in the first two ends, it was singles until B.C.s Jim Cotter missed a key double with his last rock in eight, letting Stoughton draw to the button for two to go ahead 6-5. "It was a real tough double," said Morris. "We missed it by a hair." Cotter was a little happier Thursday night as they beat Laycock and Saskatchewan 6-3. "We bounced back," he said. "We had a solid team game. We were definitely a little better than this morning." Greg Balsdon and Ontario were sitting at 4-6 with one game left to play friday morning after losing to Manitoba. The Northwest Territories-Yukon team of Jamie Koe was tied with Eddie MacKenzie out of P.E.I. at 3-7 with one game left, Jeff Currie and Northern Ontario were finished at 2-9 and Nova Scotias Jamie Murphy was winless at 0-10 with their final game against Ontario Friday.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Nobody wants Game 2 of the Stanley Cup final to come quicker than Dan Girardi. The Rangers defenceman was victimized by a bouncing puck that led to the Kings overtime goal in Game 1 on Wednesday. After the Kings flubbed a three-on-two, the puck found its way to Girardi who had time and space to play it. The other Rangers headed up the ice to start an attack only to have the puck bounce over Girardis stick. The 30-year-old from Welland, Ont., fell to his knees, taking a swipe at the puck in a bid to clear it. It went straight to Kings forward Mike Richards, who fed Justin Williams for the winning overtime goal. "It was gone until this morning, until right now," Girardi said dryly Friday when reporters asked him about the gaffe. "As a player, theres really no worse feeling than that. Obviously in the Stanley Cup finals you dont want to make a play that costs your team. "Obviously (I was) stewing about it a little bit (on the Rangers off-day Thursday) but youve got to move on. Weve got a huge opportunity to get it 1-1 going back to our building." Game 2 is Saturday at Staples Center. Girardi, who plays with Ryan McDonagh on the Rangers top defensive pairing, got plenty of support from his teammates in the wake of the overtime mistake. "Danny was down for a few minutes," said forward Brad Richards. "Everybody kind of picked him up. "Thats a tough bounce. It just happened that that was the overtime goal that the bounce happened. We got a bounce on the second goal that went off their D-man (Slava Voynov) in the net." McDonagh sits next to Girardi in the locker room and wasted little time going over the play. "Thats how we work through things as a group," said McDonagh. "Me and him are a pretty talkative pairing. No matter what happens, bad play, good play, were talking about it, trying to improve, trying to make sure were on the same page as much as possible. "If it was flip-flopped and it was me, he would have came to me and asked me, What could we have done differently, what could we have done better? Thats the beauty of our pairing and the beauty of him, too. He doesnt soak in the wounds, so to speak, think about the what-ifs. He just tries to correct it, see what he can do better, and were there supporting him." It was clearly appreciated. "Its great to hear the guys rally around you," said Girardi. "That could happen to anyone and everyone would have reacted the same way, doesnt matter who it is. Thats the type of team we are. Everyones got each others back." Several assistant coaches also spoke to Girardi afterwards. Rangers coach Alain Vigneault, meanwhile, kept the incident in perspective "Everybody understands the dynamic of that play," he said. "You know, Dans got to turn the page and move on. "Hes been one of our real solid defencemen, not only in the playoffs and the regular season, but hes a real hard worker, and Im sure that hes focused on the next game now." <a href="http://www.authentictexansteamshop.com/Ryan-Fitzpatrick-Texans-Jersey">Ryan Fitzpatrick Youth Jersey Texans</a>.

LOUIS -- T.LAS VEGAS -- Training camps are weeks away, but Las Vegas legal bookmakers are already making bets on what the NFL season will look like. Turns out it could be a lot like the last, with the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos favoured to meet again next February in Arizona. Seattle is a 9-2 favourite at the LVH sports book, while the Broncos are next at 5-1 to win the Super Bowl. Both teams are favoured to win more regular-season games than any other team, with oddsmakers putting the over/under for wins at 11 games. "The Broncos have a real tough schedule so it wont be an easy task," said Jeff Sherman, part of a team that sets the odds at the LVH. "They have some tough early games outside their division, including the Super Bowl rematch with the Seahawks in Week 3." The Seahawks are 3 1/2-point favourites to beat the Broncos at home in that game, a line that figures to draw some early action even before either team puts on the pads this summer. Denver was a 2-point favourite in the Super Bowl, which Seattle won 43-8. Sherman said there is more parity than ever in the NFL, with 19 teams expected to win between seven and nine games and only five expected to win 10 or more. At the bottom of the pack is Jacksonville, with a 4 1/2-win line, and Oakland at five games. Despite the parity, teams in the NFC are favoured more than teams in the AFC. Bettors can wager on which conference wins the Super Bowl, with the NFC a 3 1/2-point favourite. "The one thing that really stood out when we sat down and went through this game by game was how many goood teams are in the NFC," Sherman said.dddddddddddd NFL games are by far the biggest attraction for sports bettors, who placed a record $119.4 million in legal wagers in Nevada on the last Super Bowl alone. Nevada is the only state where full betting on games is allowed, though bettors in Delaware can wager on parlays of more than one team. Sherman said most of the so-called "wise guys" who can move the lines at sports books wait until the exhibition season to begin making wagers, though some might pounce on the early numbers if they think the oddsmakers have made an error evaluating a team. "Once the preseason games start and you can see what the coaches are thinking it becomes more clear," he said. "But they will move in if they think there is a weakness in a line." The LVH is traditionally one of the first to post over/under win totals for the season, which were put up Sunday afternoon. Sherman said there was a small flurry of wagers made by bettors who thought teams might either be undervalued or too highly regarded by the oddsmakers. This years draft didnt change many opinions on win totals, he said, because rookies rarely have a big impact on seasons. That was particularly true with the Cleveland Browns, who are listed at 6 1/2 wins despite the addition of Johnny Manziel at quarterback. "He doesnt have an effect on what we do," Sherman said. "We like the Browns overall as a team, their defence is good and theyve gotten better even if the results dont show it. But in a tough division we just couldnt go any higher." ' ' '

DALLAS -- Alex Chiasson is off to a fast start in the NHL. Chiasson scored the tiebreaking goal at 12:07 of the second period, and Dallas defeated the Washington Capitals 2-1 on Saturday night to give Lindy Ruff his first victory as coach of the Stars. It was the second goal this season for Chiasson, who has eight in nine career games. Still, the 23-year-old right wing said he doesnt think much about scoring goals. "I just play my game. Thats my main focus. As long as the team wins, thats all I care about," he said. Kari Lehtonen made 25 saves for Dallas, which stopped a Capitals flurry on a power play as the game ended. Alex Ovechkin scored in the first period for Washington. Erik Cole tied it 3:35 later. "We had lots of chances -- lots of crossbars and posts," Ovechkin said. Midway through the second, the Stars skated in 3-on-2 against goalie Braden Holtby. Cody Eakin took a shot and the rebound went out to Chiasson as he skated down the slot and beat Holtby. Before joining the Stars last April, Chiasson had 36 goals in 109 games at Boston University and 14 in 66 American Hockey League games. Dallas said he became the first NHL player to score eight or more goals through his first nine games since Rob Gaudreau in 1992-93, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. The only other active player who started as well was Anaheims Teemu Selanne. "He finds the right place," Ruff said. "He needs a little of that magic to rub off on the other guys." Ovechkins goal came on a power play 4:26 into the game when he took a pass from Mike Green in the left circle and one-timed the puck past Lehtonen. It was the fourth goal in three games this season for Ovechkin, who entered tied with teammate Mikhail Grabovski for the NHL scoring lead. The Capitals came in with a league-best 56 per cent success rate (5 for 9) on power plays. They were 1 for 3 against the Stars. "I thought we did a nice job on their power play," Ruff said. "Ovechkin just did what he does. He took a shot from a tough angle and he found a hole." About 3 1/2 minutes after that, Jamie Benn kept the puck in the Capitals end by shooting it around the boards behind the net. Tyler Seguin backhanded the puck behind him into the slot, where Cole beat Holtby. "I thought we looked really good in our zone, breaking out the puck and in the neutral zone coming back," Chiasson said. Seguins assist was part of an early payoff from the July trade that brought him and centre Rich Peverley to Dallas from the Boston Bruins. Peverley played for the first time since missing the preseason. He was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat. But while he wasnt skating, he was watching. "I got to go through training camp and see (Ruffs) style. I think it fits this team well. Hes a puck-possession type of coach," Peverley said. The Stars did much better at possessing the puck than they had in their opening game against Florida on Thursday. They led 2-1 in the third period that night, but allowed 39 shots on Lehtonen and lost 4-2. The best chance for the Capitals came when they appeared to have a goal with 12 minutes left in the second period. The puck popped up behind Lehtonen and went into the net when Nicklas Backstrom made contact with the goalie. The play was ruled no goal on review because of goaltender interference. "I thought once the puck goes in there, youre allowed to go after it," Capitals coach Adam Oates said. And I didnt think (Backstrom) interfered with him. I think he touched the puck first and then the goalie." In the third period, Dallas allowed only five shots on goal. "Thats part of the deal," Oates said. "Youve got to try to wear them out, wait for your turn. We get a power play and you get a chance." Washingtons final power play lasted 36 seconds after Seguin was called for delay of game at 19:24. "We really didnt sit on (the puck). We had some great zone time, and didnt do anything foolish that would lose the game," Ruff said. NOTES: Peverley missed a chance for a power-play goal in the third period. He poked a rebound behind Holtby but off the left post. ...

According to the Washington Post, teammates Karl Alzner and John Carlson found a ladder and helped Ward climb over the top of the door. <a href="http://www.authentictitansshop.com/Antonio-Johnson-Titans-Jersey">Antonio Johnson Womens Jersey</a>. -- Kevin Harvick has a second straight shot at winning from the pole at Kansas Speedway. <a href="http://www.authentictitansshop.com/Michael-Griffin-Titans-Jersey">Michael Griffin Womens Jersey</a>.
