Week 7 meaning a lot of fantasy

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa — Oscar Pistorius was in an altercation at an upmarket nightclub over the weekend, his family said Tuesday. Pistorius went with a cousin to a trendy Johannesburg nightclub on Saturday, where he was accosted by a man who aggressively questioned him about his murder trial, his family confirmed. The man gave a different version, saying the double-amputee runner was drunk, insulted his friends and the family of President Jacob Zuma and poked him in the chest, according to Johannesburgs Star newspaper. Regardless of who started the argument, the weekend episode focuses fresh attention on the disputed character of Pistorius, a globally recognized athlete who is on trial for murder after he fatally shot girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp through a closed toilet door on Feb. 14, 2013. Defence lawyers describe Pistorius, currently free on bail, as a vulnerable figure with a disability who pulled the trigger in a tragic case of mistaken identity, but prosecutors portray him as a gun-obsessed hothead who shot Steenkamp after the couple quarreled. The trial is on a break ahead of closing arguments on Aug. 7-8, sparing Pistorius the near-daily trip to the Pretoria courthouse, where he has sometimes wept and wailed in apparent distress during testimony. The nightclub argument has put him back on the front pages of South Africas press, which has also highlighted a number of quotations about suffering and religious faith that appeared on his Twitter account in the hours that followed. The altercation in the nightspot cannot be a factor in Pistorius trial, said a legal analyst who has closely followed proceedings. «It would not be appropriate to mention it in closing arguments as it would constitute hearsay as no previous witness has entered evidence of it on the trial record,» Kelly Phelps, a senior lecturer in the public law department at the University of Cape Town, wrote in an email to The Associated Press. «If it had occurred earlier in proceedings the gentleman concerned could have been called as a witness or Mr. Pistorius could have been questioned on the reports. Even then it would have very little value. The most important thing the court needs to determine is what Pistorius was thinking and how he was acting on the night in question,» wrote Phelps, referring to the night on which Pistorius killed Steenkamp. Pistorius had been barred from consuming alcohol under early bail conditions, but the ban was rescinded after the defence appealed. He was seated in a quiet booth in the VIP section of the nightclub before he was approached, said Anneliese Burgess, a spokeswoman for the Pistorius family. «The individual, according to my client, started to aggressively interrogate him on matters relating to the trial. An argument ensued during which my client asked to be left alone,» she said in a statement. «Oscar soon thereafter left the club with his cousin. My client regrets the decision to go to a public space and thereby inviting unwelcome attention.» The man who argued with Pistorius is Jared Mortimer, according to Johannesburgs Star newspaper and The Juice, a South African celebrity news website, which quoted Mortimer as saying the Paralympic athlete started the confrontation. Pistorius said Mortimers friends had betrayed him in the murder trial, The Star quoted Mortimer as saying in an apparent reference to evidence presented in court. The athlete also said he had information that could get those friends into trouble, but he would not use it, according to Mortimer. «He was drunk, but not bad. We were drinking tequila and I still remember putting down my drink and thinking I couldnt drink it while my friends were being spoken of like that,» The Star quoted Mortimer as saying. Pistorius also insulted the family of the South African president, Jacob Zuma, upsetting Mortimer, who is a friend of a member of Zumas family, according to the newspaper. «He was poking me and saying that I would never get the better of him,» the newspaper quoted Mortimer as saying. «He was close to my face and at that point I pushed him to get him away from me. A chair was behind his legs and he fell to the ground.» The altercation happened Saturday night in Sandton, an upscale area in Johannesburg, according to South African media. A woman who answered the telephone at The VIP Room, the club where the incident occurred, said club owner Chris Coutroulis was «overseas» and was awaiting reports from club staff who witnessed the altercation. The club website says it caters to the «nouveau riche» and invites guests to «slip on your diamante dancing shoes or designer suit and dance the night away at the most ostentatious venue in Joburg.» On Monday, several quotations appeared on Pistorius Twitter account. They included the biblical verse «The Lord is close to the brokenhearted,» as well as a prayer, «Lord, today I ask that you bathe those who live in pain in the river of your healing. Amen.» Another tweet shows photos of Pistorius with disabled and other children and a caption about «the ability to make a difference in someones life.» Burgess, the Pistorius family spokeswoman, said she was not immediately able to confirm the authenticity of the tweets. He last tweeted on Feb. 14, the first anniversary of Steenkamps death. Pistorius, who says he killed Steenkamp after thinking an intruder was about to attack him, faces 25 years to life in prison if found guilty of premeditated murder. He could also be sentenced to a shorter prison term if convicted of murder without premeditation or negligent killing. Additionally, he faces separate gun-related charges. http://www.baseballbravesshop.com/phil-niekro-braves-jersey/.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Eugenie Bouchard won five of the last six games to upset Jelena Jankovic 6-3, 4-6, 6-3 in the Family Circle Cup quarter-finals Friday. The 20-year-old Canadian beat the second-seeded Jankovic to reach the semifinals at a WTA tour event for the second time this season and fifth in her career. On Saturday, she plays 14th-seeded Andrea Petkovic as she seeks her first title — something Bouchard thinks shes more than ready for. «Every time I go into a tournament now and every match, I always believe I can win,» she said. Even when she falls behind, as happened in her past two matches. Bouchard trailed in the third set against Venus Williams on Thursday and Jankovic this time before rallying to victories. «I feel confidence in myself,» she said. Jankovic, a Serb once ranked No. 1, was the latest familiar name to be ousted before the weekend. The 2007 champion joined Serena and Venus Williams and past winners Sabine Lisicki and Sam Stosur. Jankovic was the highest-ranked player left in the field at No. 8. No. 3 seed Sara Errani was also upset in the quarterfinals, falling to 17-year-old qualifier Belinda Bencic. Bencic, who had to win twice last weekend simply to make the field, took over in the final two sets for a 4-6, 6-2, 6-1 victory over the 26-year-old Italian. Bencic hadnt made it past the second round in two previous WTA events this year and wasnt expecting to advance to her first tour semifinals «I was hoping for it and I was believing in me that it would come,» she said. «Yeah, Im just really happy it came this week.» Bencic is the first qualifier to advance this far at the Family Circle, an event where at least one of the top four seeds has reached the semifinals the previous 10 years. On Saturday, shell face unseeded Slovakian Jana Cepelova, who pulled off a final surprise when she easily beat 12th-seeded countrywoman Daniela Hantuchova 6-2, 6-1. Cepelova had defeated world No. 1 and two-time defending Family Circle champion Serena Williams on Tuesday night to start off a week of upsets. Either Bencic or Cepelova will be the first unseeded player in the finals since 2011 when Elena Vesnina lost the championship to Caroline Wozniacki. Errani looked confident and in control in the first set before getting overwhelmed by Bencic, who won 12 of the final 15 games. Errani talked to herself and even threw down her racket as Bencics crisp shots clipped lines and moved out of reach. Petkovic topped ninth-seeded Lucie Safarova 6-3, 1-6, 6-1. The 26-year-old German, ranked 40th in the world, had struggled in recent events. So Petkovic was pleased to shake off Safarova in the final set and advance to weekend play. «Im used to winning at least two, three matches and then losing to the top players, but it was a really tough few weeks for me in the past,» she said. «So now Im just really, really happy and kind of relieved.» Cepelova said the win over Serena Williams gave her a boost of energy shes carried throughout the work. «Playing against Serena I really learned so much and every match gave me more confidence,» she said. Bouchard made it to the Australian Open semifinals this year, losing to eventual champion Li Na. In her only WTA final, she lost to Sam Stosur in Osaka in October. Bouchard trailed 2-1 in the final set. She then dug in to win the next three games and take control. Her steady, strong groundstrokes wore down Jankovic. «It was the third set and your concentration goes down a little bit if youre getting tired,» Jankovic said. «It was so close. It could have went either way, if I was a little bit tougher out there and played certain points a little smarter.» The two also met in the quarterfinals last year, and Jankovic won 6-2, 6-1. Bouchard was ranked No. 114 then, but shes 20th now. «Well, I didnt want it to be Groundhog Day today, for sure,» Bouchard said. «Same tournament, same round, same opponent.» Not the same result.

Braun was hitting .318 with six homers and 18 RBIs when he was placed on the 15-day disabled list on May 3. Braun took batting practice before the teams game Wednesday afternoon against Arizona. CLEVELAND — Yan Gomes made sure the Indians went into the All-Star break on a positive note. Gomes drove in all three runs, including a go-ahead two-run homer in the eighth inning, and Cleveland rallied for a 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Sunday. Gomes blast to right off Javy Guerra (0-2) came after the White Sox scored two runs in top of the inning to take a 2-1 lead. Nick Swisher led off with a single before Gomes, who also had an RBI single in the second, hit a 1-1 pitch into Chicagos bullpen. Gomes, who threw his arms in the air as he rounded first base after his 12th homer of the season, wasnt trying to do anything dramatic. „I was just trying to do the same thing Swish did, and just get a hit,“ he said. „I definitely wasnt thinking about doing hitting a home run.“ „Im thrilled for him, because he was a little under the weather today, but he didnt want to come out of the game,“ Indians manager Terry Francona said. Guerra admitted he didnt make a good pitch. „A slider, came out, wasnt a very good one,“ he said. „(Gomes) did what he was supposed to. Broken-bat base hit to left, next guy hits a homer. Its just bad luck. Bad inning.“ Bryan Shaw (4-1) allowed two runs in the top of the eighth. Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 12th save, striking out the final two hitters. Trevor Bauer struck out a career-high 10 in 6 2-3 scoreless innings for Cleveland. Gordon Beckhams RBI single tied the game before Leury Garcias hit to centre put Chicago ahead, but the White Sox couldnt hold the lead for their fourth loss in five games. The Indians head into the All-Star break with a 47-47 record. „I wish our record was better, but in the next two months, if we play good baseball its going to be very exciting,“ Francona said. „Its in front of us now and if we can play well, we can climb back into it and play relevant games at the end.“ John Danks allowed one run in seven innings. The White Sox threatened throughout the game, but didnt score until the eighth. Conor Gillaspie singled with one out, took second on a wild pitch and scored on Beckhams single up the middle. After a groundout, Garcia sent a roller to the right side. Second baseman Jason Kipnis tried to make a backhand stop near the bag, but the ball went under his glove and rollled into centre field.dddddddddddd Bauer allowed eight hits and had at least one base runner in every inning, but pitched out of trouble each time. The right-hander was pulled after All-Star Jose Abreus two-out single in the seventh, but Marc Rzepczynski retired Adam Dunn. White Sox All-Star shortstop Alexei Ramirez was out due to a stiff back, but is expected to play in Tuesdays All-Star game in Minneapolis. The loss sent Chicago into the break with a 45-51 record. „Weve had spurts where we play well, weve had spurts where we didnt play that well, but weve had a lot of games that we could have won that we didnt win,“ White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. „You wish you were in a better spot, but you come back and try and clean that stuff up.“ Bauers first career outing against Chicago last season didnt work out well. He allowed five runs while recording only two outs, but the Indians rallied for a 19-10 victory. Bauer more than made up for that Sunday. His biggest jam came in the sixth. Dayan Viciedo singled and Gillaspie walked to start the inning, but Gordon Beckham struck out. Gomes quickly fielded Tyler Flowers tapper in front of the plate and his throw to third forced Vicideo. Bauer ended the inning by striking out Garcia. Chicago had three hits in the second, but didnt score. Gillaspie led off with a single, but was doubled off first when Mike Aviles made a strong throw from left field after catching Beckhams foul fly ball. Garcia followed with a single, but Alejandro De Aza flied out. Abreu, who made the All-Star team in his rookie season, was 3 for 5. He goes into the break with a major league-leading 29 homers and is hitting .292. NOTES: Indians general manager Chris Antonetti expects RHP Justin Masterson (right knee inflammation) to return shortly after the All-Star break.… Indians OF Chris Dickerson (tight left hamstring) missed his second straight game.… White Sox OF Adam Eaton (jammed left wrist) was out for the second straight day.… Bauer will start the Indians first game after the break at Detroit on Friday.… Chicago SS Carlos Sanchez made his major debut, replacing Ramirez. He was 0 for 5 with an error.… The White Sox will open play at home against Houston following the break. LHP Carlos Quintana (5-7) will start the first game.

ANAHEIM, Calif. — Anaheim Ducks captain and leading scorer Ryan Getzlaf has been scratched from Sunday nights game against the Vancouver Canucks because of an upper-body injury. Getzlaf has 10 goals and 12 points through his first 18 games, helping Anaheim vault to the top of the NHL overall standings.

Johnson left Wednesday nights game against Houston after only three minutes with an ankle injury.The Calgary Flames took advantage of an extended break to work on their scuffling power play. Theyll see if the extra practice pays off Thursday night in a matchup with the Arizona Coyotes, one of the leagues worst teams at killing penalties. The Flames (22-18-3) have been off since opening a five-game road swing leading into the All-Star break with Saturdays 1-0 win over Vancouver that snapped a three-game skid. Mikael Backlund scored and Joni Ortio made 36 saves in his first start of the season after being recalled by Calgary two days earlier. With four days off, the Flames got a chance to return home and take a break from the grind of the schedule. Its a time to get some mental and physical rest, but at the same time, we cant be complacent, coach Bob Hartley told the teams official website. Hartley and his coaching staff spent extra time examining their brutal play with the extra skater. The Flames are 1 for 14 with the man advantage in 2015 and have converted a league-worst 8.9 percent of power plays (4 for 45) since Dec. 12. Over the past two or three weeks, weve hit a speed bump, Hartley said. It comes in waves and thats what were facing. Ive talked to many coaches over the past weeks like I always do, about my power play, thats where were searching for solutions. A simple solution may be facing the Coyotes (16-22-4). Arizona has killed a Western Conference-worst 74.5 percent of its penalties and has allowed eight power-play goals in 25 chances during a 2-4-0 stretch. The Flames have won all three matchups with the Coyotes this season, scoring twice with the extra skater.dddddddddddd Rookie center Josh Jooris notched his first career hat trick in the last matchup with Arizona, a 5-2 win Dec. 2. Jiri Hudler assisted on two of those goals and has one goal and five assists in the season series. The Coyotes, whose 3.26 goals-against average is among the worst in the NHL, head into the finale of a six-game homestand after Tuesdays 3-2 loss to San Jose. The Sharks broke a 2-all tie in the third period on a shot that bounced off Arizona defenseman Zbynek Michaleks skate and squeezed through Devan Dubnyks pads. You hate to lose on a goal like that, especially because I thought we battled hard, Michalek told the Coyotes official website. You feel like whatever you do, nothing goes your way. We just have to fight through it. Weve said it many times. Nobody is going to give us anything for free. The Coyotes traded Dubnyk, who had been their most consistent goalie with a 9-5-2 record, 2.72 goals-against average and .916 save percentage, to Minnesota for a third-round draft pick in 2015 on Wednesday. That leaves Mike Smith, who has struggled with a 7-17-2 mark, 3.52 GAA and .885 save percentage, to carry the load. One positive for Arizona is Mikkel Boedker breaking out of his scoring slump. Boedker has four goals in the last three games after going without one in the previous 11 contests. The Coyotes leader with 13 goals, Boedker has one assist against Calgary this season. Calgary will start Ortio again after his stellar debut and Karri Ramo, working his way back from injury, will travel with the team.

CLEVELAND — The NBA All-Star weekend is the unofficial halfway mark of the NBA season and to say Anthony Bennetts rookie campaign hasnt gone quite as expected so far would be an understatement. The 20-year-old rookie from Toronto, the first Canadian ever selected with the first overall pick in the NBA Draft when the Cleveland Cavaliers grabbed him in 2013, has had anything but a storybook beginning to his professional career. While the rest of the NBAs best and brightest spent their weekend in New Orleans for All-Star festivities, Bennett was just the second No. 1 pick to not be selected for the annual Rising Stars game, composed of the leagues best rookie and sophomore players since Washingtons Kwame Brown in 2001. Bennett is patient when asked about his struggles. After starting his professional career 0-for-15 from the floor, hes had to get used to talking about it. «Well, its not the way I planned it to go, I can say that,» Bennett said. «Im pretty sure everything will turn around soon. Im working hard and Ive got my teammates with me. The coaching staff has been helping me a lot so Ive just got to keep my head up and go hard.» While his start hasnt been ideal, Bennett has faced the music and remained calm amid pressures and criticisms coming from all angles. Speaking in the Cavaliers locker room before a recent game in Cleveland, Bennett was frank about his struggles this season, while also confident that the tide was turning. «Its overwhelming, but Im pretty level headed,» Bennett said. «Ive got nice teammates who have been in the league a few years. They can tell me a lot of what theyve been through. Ive been humble, level headed and working every day.» The advice from teammates and coaches is the same: keep working. A visit to the Cavaliers practice facility showed he is taking that advice to heart. Long after everyone else has left the floor, Bennett remained. Practising free throws under the watchful eye of an assistant coach, Bennett looked like any other NBA rookie. «Everybody has had their part,» Bennett said of the Cavaliers organization. «Helping me with my game, shooting after practice, or pulling me aside and giving me pointers here and there. Everybody has been really helpful.» Injuring his shoulder prior to the NBA Draft, Bennetts rookie season was derailed before it began. Missing the Las Vegas Summer League where rookies get their first taste of NBA life, while also being unable to train during the offseason, Bennett came into the Cavaliers training camp with extra weight to accompany the extra pressure that every first overall pick carries with him. Playing sparingly at the beginning of the season, Bennett has worked hard to shed the extra pounds and get into game shape so hes ready to go when his name is called. Last Tuesday night, in a victory against the Sacramento Kings, Bennett posted his best performance to date, recording 19 points and 10 rebounds. He followed up the next night with a two-point, two-rebound performance. Bennetts roller-coaster experience serves as a reminder of the patience necessary when drafting young players each year. With half a season behind him, Bennett is starting to get a feel for what to expect each night he steps onto the floor as a pro. «In college it would be one game, someones a seven-footer, but the next game someone is six-foot-six,» Bennett said. «Everyone is pretty much the same size now. Youve got to go hard every time.» In addition to staying after practice for extra work, Bennett often returns for a second session. How does the first overall pick deal with the lows that have accompanied his season thus far? With a little help from his hometown friends. «My close friends from back home, theyve been with me from the start, before this [being in the NBA], so they see my ups, they see my downs. They know what Im going through.» After a game where he hasnt performed well, or even gotten the chance to get off the bench, they are the ones who help keep Bennett focused on whats in front of him. «Every time I have a bad game or am feeling down, I hit them up and they tell me to keep staying with it,» Bennett said. «Theyll come out here and after bad games theyll go with me straight to the gym. Thats something thats really helpful for me and Im thankful for it.» As Bennett begins to show flashes of why the Cavaliers wanted him in the first place, he isnt allowing an unexpectedly difficult beginning make him lose sight of the fact that hes living his NBA dream. «Its a huge honour. Its a blessing, you know? I just cant let this opportunity slide for me. I have to work hard every day. This is my job. I have to work hard and be happy about it.» Nike Roshe Run En Solde. — The CJ2K era is over in Tennessee, just the latest step by the Titans in their franchise makeover.

The Australian hadnt played a tournament since a second bout with myeloid leukemia in early 2012 after having first fought off the disease when he was 17.TORONTO – Standing comfortably by his dressing room stall, David Clarkson refuses to dodge questions about a goal drought thats lingered 10 games into the start of his Maple Leafs career. Hes willing answer queries for as long as needed. «Ask whatever you want,» he says. And he understands the questions. But he also knows why he was brought into the fold in Toronto and why Dave Nonis and company chose to pony up seven years at $36.75 million. «I wasnt brought here to score 50 goals,» Clarskon said earnestly after practice on Monday morning. «I was brought here for that full game that I bring, competing every night.» Nonis made that point clear on the day he signed the Mimico native last July. The considerable size and weight of the deal aside – not to mention the 30 goals he scored two seasons ago – internal expectations for the 29-year-old did not hinge strictly on offence but instead on the range of tools and experience he could contribute to a group prospectively on the rise. And though he hasnt scored, with bad luck in a mostly defensive role primarily to blame, Clarkson has generally played that part with the Leafs, admittedly still adjusting to the new confines of life in Toronto. «He hasnt really let it affect anything about him,» James van Riemsdyk said of Clarksons goal drought during a conversation with the Leaf Report. «I think hes come in and filled his role; [hes] played hard, finished checks, stuck up for his teammates and had a couple tough bounces as far as goal-scoring [goes]...» Predictably pesky and a willing physical combatant, Clarkson has actually been at his best as a puck-controlling, forechecking burden deep in the offensive zone – something the group at large has struggled with until spurts recently. Effective in that regard mostly alongside Mason Raymond, Clarkson leads the team in puck possession (CORSI,) despite starting many of his shifts in the defensive zone. «Thats something Ive always brought,» said Clarkson, who has three assists, including a pair in the past two games. «In my career, Ive always been known to be a guy that down low is hard to play against, thats always in the blue paint, winning battles down low, finishing checks and driving the other team crazy.» An admitted adjustment early on, Clarkson has been employed in a primarily defensive role so far, matched up against opposing top lines more often than not. Hes held his own in such duties – on the ice for just four goals against. Never was his effectiveness in this capacity more pronounced than his second game of the year. Playing alongside Raymond and Dave Bolland, Clarkson helped keep Sidney Crosby off the scoresheet for just the second time all season (to that point.) «The whole game, I was trying to hit Sid or trying to hit Malkin every shift because, if those guys are a little bit hesitant that you might do something, all of sudden maybe theyre looking over their shoulder and not as effective,» he said. «I always try to play that same way.» A Cup finalist with the Devils in 2012, Clarksons veteran credentials have also held sway among his more youthful teammates – all but a handful are younger than his 29 years. Nearly toppling the veteran Bruins in the playoffs last May, the LLeafs looked to Clarkson and Bolland for aid in the leadership department this past summer.dddddddddddd «Hes one of those guys you can look at to be a constant out there,» James Reimer told the Leaf Report. «Hes just a good leader and hes a good pro. And a young team, thats what a lot of the time we need. You need those people that you can look up to.» Reimer points the manner in which Clarkson has handled the early string of misfires offensively. «Hes not getting rattled, not breaking his stick, not swearing up and down,» said the 25-year-old netminder. «He just comes to work every day.» Several factors have worked to hold Clarkson in check offensively, luck and role most prominently among them. A sign of his unluckiness to date: the Leafs boast an even-strength shooting percentage of a paltry 2.6 per cent when Clarksons been on the ice this season, lowest on the team (with a minimum of 10 games played.) The several opportunities he has had, including a jam play opposite Jhonas Enroth on Saturday and a squeaker through the five-hole of Cory Schneider a week earlier, have fallen just shy of crossing the line. In addition to bad luck, Clarksons role has also changed from where it left off with the Devils. A first unit power-play contributor in Jersey, he is, at best, a second unit option in Toronto – stuck behind the skillful likes of van Riemsdyk, Raymond, Phil Kessel, Joffrey Lupul, Nazem Kadri, and Tyler Bozak when healthy. Clarkson, who totaled 14 power-play goals and 24 power-play points the past two seasons, has averaged 1:50 per game on the man advantage thus far, down from the nightly 3:33 he garnered with the Devils last season. Not helping his cause offensively either is the limited amount of even-strength shifts hes started in the offensive zone – slightly above 17 per cent, lowest on the team – nor the amount hes shot the puck to date; just two per game, down considerably from the past two seasons. «We think that David Clarkson has got a lot to offer to our hockey club and hes had his fair share of chances,» said coach Randy Carlyle. «Hes a little bit snake-bitten, but if he continues to go to the net the way hes been going and we continue to drive that middle lane and get pucks directed around him hell score some goals for us. We believe that.» With career-highs of 30 goals and 46 points, the production is unlikely to ever match the annual $5.2 million pay grade, but rightly or wrongly, thats not why the Leafs signed Clarkson in the first place. «If David Clarkson doesnt score 30 goals in a Leaf uniform, but provides all the other things that we know hes going to provide were pretty comfortable were a better team,» Nonis said on July 5. Clarkson says the early drought may have bothered him as a younger player, what with the now daily barrage of questions and pressure to contribute offensively, but with age, experience and a family, he appears neither frustrated nor agitated. He knows his poor luck is bound to change, also understanding the manner in which he can affect the game otherwise. «Theres so much that he brings to this team,» Reimer said. “When he starts scoring, honestly itll just be a bonus."

Canadas second-to-last

The Calgary Flames will not have Mike Cammalleri in their lineup on Monday night when they play the Carolina Hurricanes. Cammalleri suffered a concussion in the Flames 2-1 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Saturday. The 31-year-old forward did not travel with the team to Carolina.

The World Series champions failed each of the four times it had runners in scoring position, eking out just two hits while facing No.MINSK, Belarus — When Alex Burrows was on the ice in pain following a knee-on-knee hit from Italys Joachim Ramoser, it didnt look good. When he needed to lean on Brayden Schenn and Nathan MacKinnon to get off the ice, it was all too easy to fear the worst. A year after Team Canada lost Eric Staal to a sprained medial collateral ligament at the world hockey championship, it was something of a relief that Burrows did not suffer a knee injury. In announcing a one-game suspension for Ramoser, the International Ice Hockey Federation revealed the Canadian medical staffs diagnosis of a charley horse. Coach Dave Tippett said Saturday that Burrows was a game-time decision for Sundays showdown with Sweden. «A little better today,» Tippett said after an optional practice at Chizhovka-Arena. "(Burrows) took steps forwards overnight, and doctors and trainers will work on him today and hopefully we can get him close tomorrow." Asked if he was confident the Vancouver Canucks forward would be able to play, Tippett responded: «Well see. Lets see where it is tomorrow, but certainly better than last night.» Burrows did not return after the scary collision with 56 seconds left in the first period that Tippett and Italian coach Tom Pokel agreed was not intentional. The IIHF disciplinary panel agreed but added that Ramoser «endangered the safety of Burrows.» «He did initiate contact illegally with his knee and must take responsibility for causing the injury to Burrows,» the IIHF said in a statement. Told of Ramosers suspension Saturday, Tippett called it a tough play. «Its a knee-to-knee kind of hit,» he said. «I dont think the kid meant to do it. Just when you miss by a little bit, those things happen.» Burrows did not skate Saturday, but he was far from alone. Only four skaters — deffenceman Morgan Rielly and forwards Jonathan Huberdeau, Mark Scheifele and Sean Monahan — took the ice along with goaltenders Ben Scrivens, James Reimer and Justin Peters.dddddddddddd It was not clear which goaltender would start against Sweden in Canadas second-to-last preliminary game that very likely will determine first place in Group A. Reimer has a 2.27 goals-against average and .918 save percentage in two starts, while Scrivens has a 1.00 and .963. Sweden is Canadas biggest test before the quarter-final. Two players are back from the silver-medal-winning Sochi Olympic team — forwards Gustav Nyquist of the Detroit Red Wings and Jimmie Ericsson. Goaltender Anders Nilsson of the New York Islanders has been phenomenal for Sweden, which has gotten seven points from former NHL forward Joakim Lindstrom. «Obviously were expecting a high-paced game, and theyve got some good, skilled players,» said Cody Hodgson, who leads Canada with seven points and is tied for the tournament lead with six goals. Hodgson is thriving in part because hes healthy, and while some teammates are banged-up, Tippett thinks theyll be OK. Defenceman Braydon Coburn lost a few teeth in Fridays victory over Italy, and Troy Brouwer and Kevin Bieska also had mouth injuries. Defenceman Jason Garrison, who missed the game against Italy with illness, was doing better Saturday, according to Tippett. The flu bug has gone through some other teams in Minsk, but beyond Garrison it hadnt done the same to Canada. «Knock on wood it seems to be all right today,» Tippett said. Even more fortunate for Canada is that Burrows seems to be OK. «It was a tough-looking hit, but hes been around a while,» Tippett said. «He knows when he thinks he can get up and moving, and it was good to see him today a lot better than last night.» China Jerseys  Cheap Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '

SUNRISE, Fla. — The Boston Bruins domination of the Florida Panthers continued. Well, the Bruins are beating just about everyone lately. Torey Krug scored the go-ahead goal in the third period and the Bruins won their season-high fifth straight with a 5-2 victory over the Panthers on Sunday. Chad Johnson made 20 saves, and Chris Kelly, Jarome Iginla, Patrice Bergeron and Andrej Meszaros also scored for Boston. Bergeron also had two assists for the Bruins, who are 7-0-3 during a 10-game stretch on the road, their longest such point streak since 2010-11. The Bruins have taken 14 of 16 from the Panthers, including eight straight by a combined 33-10 score. Boston is now in first place in the Eastern Conference. «Weve worked hard to get ourselves back at the top of the conference,» Bruins coach Claude Julien said. «By the looks of it, itll probably be a battle right until the end.» Jimmy Hayes scored both goals for Florida, and Roberto Luongo stopped 37 shots. The Bruins broke a 1-1 tie on Krugs goal with 12:22 left the third. Krug took a pass from Brad Marchand in the slot and backhanded it past Luongo. «It seemed like their guys were a little bit tired and I thought I could jump up and beat a couple of guys,» Krug said. «March made an unbelievable play and I was lucky enough to put it in.» Three goals were scored in a span of 52 seconds later in the third, two by Boston. The Bruins stretched their lead to 3-1 on Bergerons goal with 6 seconds left on a power play. His one-timer went between Luongos pads at 11:21. «It was a big game for us. I think we played a solid road game and we came out with the two points,» Bergeron said. The Panthers closed to 3-2 when Hayes found a loose puck in front and jammed in between Johnsons pads for his second goal at 11:42 for his first career multigoal game. The Bruins made it 4-2 on Iginlas goal 31 seconds later when his wrist shot went over Luongos shoulder at 12:13 for his 20th of the season and 550th career goal. Iginla moved into sole possession of 26th on the NHLs career goals list. Longtime Bruins forward John Bucyk is 25th. Kelly scored an empty-netter with 1:02 left. The Bruins beat the Panthers for the second time in six days, including a 4-1 loss on Tuesday in Boston. «Theyre still a benchmark,» Panthers coach Peter Horachek said. «Theyre still the team that we have to gauge ourselves by. Thats a message to our guys, thats where we need to be.» The Bruins tied it at 1 on a power-play goal by Meszaros. His slap shot from above the right circle got past Luongo at 9:58. It was the first goal Luongo gave up in nearly 90 minutes since rejoining the Panthers for Fridays 2-0 win against Buffalo. Meszaros made his Bruins debut after being acquired from Philadelphia last Wednesday. «It was good to go out there and play. Overall, I felt pretty good and the two points is huge,» Meszaros said. The Panthers took a 1-0 lead on Hayes first goal at the 7-minute mark of the second. Nick Bjugstad shot from the right side and Johnson made the block, but Hayes grabbed the rebound and wristed it into the open net on the stick side. The Bruins went after Luongo from the start. He faced 27 shots in the first two periods, with at least three hitting the post, including a deflection off the skate of Panthers defenceman Brian Campbell early in the second that glanced off the iron. «You have to give (the Bruins) credit,» Luongo said. «They came out hard in the third and they created some scoring chances. I would have liked to have made a few more saves there at least to keep it a one-goal game, but they have some good players there who can make some plays. „Things kind of fell apart a little bit in the third.“ NOTES: Bruins F Daniel Paille left with an upper-body injury after being hit by Ed Jovanovski along the boards at 3:06 of the first and did not return.… Corey Potter, claimed off waivers by Boston from Edmonton on Wednesday, was a healthy scratch.… Bjugstad has five points the past six games for the Panthers.… Panthers D Erik Gudbranson left in the third period with a lower-body injury and did not return. http://www.nygiantsfanatic.com/c-49-giants-phil-mcconkey-jersey.aspx.CNN branding will appear on the front wing of the car that is powered by Honda, and will be driven by Fernando Alonso and Jenson Button this season. http://www.nygiantsfanatic.com/c-7-giants-carl-banks-jersey.aspx.

MONTREAL — FC Edmonton had its first Amway Canadian Championship final within its grasp. But then it all slipped away. Edmonton was winning on aggregate after 90 minutes of play on Wednesday, even though the Montreal Impact were winning the match 3-2. But Patrice Bernier scored late in stoppage time on a penalty kick to give Montreal its second consecutive Amway Canadian Championship final berth. «Its sickening,» said Frank Jonke, who scored the games two goals for Edmonton three minutes apart in the second half. «It leaves a sick feeling in everybodys stomach on our team. To lose, to not go through on that, is very sickening for us.» Having lost the first leg of the home-and-home series 2-1 in Edmonton last week, the Impact needed a two-goal victory for a spot in the next round. Berniers goal five minutes into stoppage time, effectively the last kick of the game, gave Montreal the 5-4 victory on aggregate over the Eddies. In the dying minutes of added time, Montreals Heath Pearce fired a shot into a crowd of Edmonton defenders in the box. Referee Drew Fischer blew his whistle for handball, ran over to Edmontons Kareem Moses, and then pointed to the penalty spot. «I dont think it was a handball,» said Jonke. «I dont think it was a penalty, and I think we should be going through.» Edmonton coach Colin Miller also thought his team was robbed. "(Two Edmonton players) saw one of our players with his hands behind his back. And the ball hit him here," said Miller, pointing to his shoulder. «The referee then went to the wrong player to tell him it hit him.» Miller was livid with Fischer after the game, and confronted the official as he was leaving the pitch. «Our players in the second half didnt deserve to get beaten in the manner that they did,» said Miller. «I had a go at the referee after the game, and rightly so. The job that we do as coaches is hard enough without that decision being made.» Impact president Joey Saputo then jumped onto the field and got into a screaming match with Miller. «I wished him a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!» quipped the Edmonton coach. «Im sure Mr. Saputo will buy me a Guinness afterwards.» With the win, Montreal (1-0-1) will play either Toronto FC or the Vancouver Whitecaps in the two-leg final on May 28 and June 4. The winner will advance to the CONCACAF Champions League. The Impact went up 3-0 on Wednesday on two first-half goals by Jack McInerney and a 47th minute strike by Jeb Brovsky. Montreal was all but assured victory before Edmonton clawed back in the second half. Jonke scored his first goal in the 67th minute when his shot from just outside the six-yard box deflected off an Impact defender and beat goalie Evan Bush. The Edmonton striker added what would have been the series-clincher three minutes later from the penalty spot, firing right down the middle for his second of the game. The Eddies were awarded a penalty after Impact defender Karl Ouimette took down Neil Hlavaty in the box. Jonkes goals were the first conceded by the Impact at Saputo Stadium in four Canadian Championship matches dating back to 2012 when the team joined MLS. «The game should have been 5-0,» said Impact coach Frank Klopas. «It should have been over. It was a lack of concentration. In five minutes, the game changed. We should have never been in this situation. We crumbled. Our mentality has to be stronger.» If not for Berniers stoppage-time goal from the spot, the Eddies would have progressed to the next round. «Some guys took their foot off the gas pedal, and we let them right back into it,» said McInerney. «We were fortunate to get a goal at the end. Its about time something goes our way this season.» Last week in Edmonton, the Eddies scored a stoppage-time goal for the 2-1 victory. McInerney was the lone goal scorer for Montreal in that game, beating goalkeeper John Smits in the 56th minute. It only took 10 minutes for McInerney to score on the return leg at Saputo Stadium, firing home after a Justin Mapp cross missed Felipe in the box but fell right to the 21-year-old instead. «No disrespect to Edmonton, but theyre a lower-level team,» said McInerney. «I would expect from myself to go out there and score every game against them.» Mapp fed McInerney again seven minutes later, flicking the ball to the on-rushing striker with his heel at the edge of the 18-yard box. McInerney gave no chance to Smits, beating the Eddies keeper with a quick strike. As winners of last years Canadian Championship, the Impact made it to the CONCACAF Champions League for the second time in the continental tournaments six-year history, where they were eliminated in the group stage.

Dickerson attempted

TORONTO — Josh Binstock had his eye on Sam Schachter for some time, believing the rising young player might be the missing ingredient for Olympic success.Beach volleyball can be a cutthroat business, and when the timing was right, Binstock made the call.Sam was on my radar because he won world championships as a junior, Binstock said. I dont think anyone from Canada has ever done that before, so I knew he had the potential. I was just waiting until I thought he had the potential to turn that into the senior level. And then as soon as I saw it, I made the decision to — I guess dump is the word — to end my partnership.Binstock and former partner Martin Reader finished 17th at the London Olympics and split after the Games. Binstock went on to play with two more partners before teaming up with Schachter.Then it became a running joke, You cant stick with anybody, youre all over the place, Binstock said with a laugh.Its tough, though, because youre really good friends with the people here (in the sport), he added. Its tough because its business but there is a personal element to it. You get over it, its nothing personal in terms of the friendship. Its just a business decision and I thought my chances were best with him, so thats how it happened.Binstock and Schachter teamed up just over a year ago, and have already found success on the international circuit, winning an FIVB World Tour event in Argentina in November — Canadas first victory since John Child and Mark Heese stepped atop a podium back in 1996.The two now have their sights set on qualifying for the Pan American Games in Toronto and then next years Olympics in Rio. Canada can only send one mens and one womens duo to each.Schachter has never been to an Olympics. For Binstock, Rio is unfinished business.(Before competing in London) I thought, Oh, I made the culmination of the epicness of what my sport is, which is the Olympics. I thought Id be satisfied with that, Binstock said. But leaving London I definitely wasnt. I told my parents, You know what? I am going to go again. They were like, What are you talking about? I thought you were actually going to get a real job. Theyre super supportive because they know that I usually have a good instinct.Binstock told his parents to give him a year playing with Schachter and they would see the reason for his Olympic optimism. They see it now, he said.Canadas national mens and womens beach teams are in town this week for a camp. Sitting at the squads training facility just north of downtown Toronto, a stones throw from Toronto FCs training grounds, Binstock and Schachter joked Thursday about their maturing relationship. If it resembles a marriage, its a happy one.Youre with each other travelling the world every day, eating, sleeping in the same room, so theres not really alone time, Binstock said. So you really need to get along with your partner, or things off the court can start manifesting on the court.We have other people on our support team that help facilitate these kinds of conversations, because when you first get together with somebody you want to make it all nice but sometimes stuff gets real, and youve got to make sure people dont take the real stuff personally. Its a maturing process… so being able to have those conversations really strengthen our friendship I guess.Schachter remembers the night Binstock called him on the phone to talk about teaming up.He said he was interested in playing with me, and I cheered, Schachter said. Im pretty sure I gave a good jump… I think when I hung up I did a couple fist pumps.At 34, Binstock is 10 years older than Schachter. Binstock is also a chiropractor.My other career, chiropractic, Im like the young guy and then with (the volleyball players) Im the old guy, so Im hanging with two extreme ages, said Binstock. It keeps me young, and I have to stay hip.Binstock and Schachter, who are both from Richmond Hill, Ont., complement each other well on the sand court. As the elder player, Binstocks strengths are about strategy, making adjustments on the fly, and developing and implementing gameplans.Growing up in the sport 10 years after Binstock, Schachter was able to capitalize on a beach volleyball coaching structure that wasnt in place when Binstock was young.I grew up in the more structured development system, where I know a lot technically whereas Josh didnt have that teaching when he was younger, so I can kind of contribute that way, Schachter said. Its just different.Their stiffest competition for spots on the Pan Am Games and Olympic teams is Ben Saxton and Chaim Schalk.Theyre a few spots ahead of us in the world rankings, but it should be between us, Schachter said.The two are optimistic, and point to their room for improvement.Usually teams play at least a quad, like four years beforehand, because thats how long it takes to develop that (chemistry), Binstock said. Back when we first got together we were kind of underachieving for our standards, and then it was like we had an exponential growth, instead of just a consistent thing. So were definitely still learning with each other. http://www.vikingsauthenticonline.com/Youth-Brandon-Fusco-Elite-Jersey/. — Sebastien Auger stopped 53 shots for his second shutout of the season as the Saint John Sea Dogs blanked the host Val-dOr Foreurs 2-0 on Friday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action. http://www.vikingsauthenticonline.com/Youth-Jarius-Wright-Elite-Jersey/.

The first-time All-Star homered and had three RBIs and Nick Swisher hit a go-ahead two-run shot in the sixth, leading Cleveland to a 5-3 victory over Masahiro Tanaka and the New York Yankees. The Indians stopped Tanakas bid to become the major leagues first 13-game winner. The rookie All-Star right-hander (12-4) allowed season worsts of five runs and 10 hits in 6 2-3 innings. But the night belonged to Brantley, who hit a leadoff homer in the seventh and had RBI doubles in the first and fifth, raising his average to .328. He also ran down Derek Jeters fly ball to deep centre on the warning track in the first when New York scored twice. «Hes a pretty good player, and hes getting better,» Indians manager Terry Francona said with a smile. Brantley has 14 homers and 60 RBIs, both team highs. He also is tied for the AL lead with 10 outfield assists. «Hes a young player thats really developed into one of the better outfielders in the game all-around,» Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. «And he showed why tonight. Its why hes an All-Star.» Brantley chose to focus on the win more than his personal performance. «We did a great job as a team having quality at-bats all night,» he said. «I was trying to get mistake pitches. I was lucky enough to get a couple of balls out over the plate and get good swings on them.» Tanaka, who lost for the third time in four starts, took a 3-2 lead into the sixth before Swisher, a former Yankee, put Cleveland on top. «It was the first time weve ever seen him,» Swisher said. «The first couple of at-bats youre kind of feeling him out. In that situation from the scouting reports and video weve seen, he loves that split-slider. When I got in that two-strike count, hed been burying that split all day long. For me, I was just lucky enough for him to hang that one.» Lonnie Chisenhall started the sixth with a single. Swisher then homered on a 1-2 pitch. Trevor Bauer (3-4) allowed three runs in seven innings and retired 13 of the last 14 hitters he faced. New Yorks only baserunner in that stretch came on Swishers fifth-inning error. Bauer struck out six and walked two in winning for the first time since June 16.dddddddddddd Cody Allen pitched the ninth for his 10th save. The Yankees were held to four hits, none after Brian McCanns one-out single in the third. The Indians committed three errors, giving them a major league-high 75 for the season. Swisher heard boos from the crowd earlier in the game after going 0 for 2 and having a routine groundball go through his legs. Tanaka allowed a run in a 25-pitch first inning and gave up two hits in the second. He retired seven straight before allowing a run in the fifth when Brantley had a two-out double after Chris Dickerson led off with a single. Tanaka struck out five and walked one. «He did get on a roll in innings three, four and five and then the mistakes kind of caught up to him,» Girardi said. «It happens, we know hes not going to be perfect, we understand that.

The third-ranked Lewis

BUFFALO, N.Y. — Dayton is re-configuring the college basketball map in Ohio. It no longer runs through Columbus after Vee Sanfords layup with 3.8 seconds left secured 11th-seeded Daytons 60-59 victory over sixth-seeded Ohio State in the second round of the of the NCAA tournament on Thursday. «I guess they called us the little brother, or whatever,» Flyers guard Jordan Sibert said. «We cant be called that anymore.» Sibert has seen it from both sides after transferring to Dayton following two seasons at Ohio State. «To be able to go out there and play with this group of guys, to be able to come up with this win, its unbelievable,» Sibert said. Leave it to another transfer, Sanford, to secure the victory in a back-and-forth game that featured 15 lead changes between two schools separated by some 120 kilometres. After Ohio States Aaron Craft hit a reverse layup with 15.5 seconds remaining, the Flyers set up a play during a timeout with 10.8 seconds left. Dayton inbounded the ball and worked it to Sanford on the right wing. Driving the lane without hesitation, he got a step on Craft and laid in a shot from about four feet away. «No, I wasnt nervous,» said Sanford, who transferred to Dayton from Georgetown. «Weve drawn up a play like that, and I messed it up previously. But (coach Archie Miller) just kept his trust in me, and Im just thankful that the shot went in.» Sanford finished with 10 points, while Dyshawn Pierre of Whitby, Ont., led Dayton with 12 points and a game-high eight rebounds. For Miller, in his third year, the win came against his former mentor, Thad Matta. Pierre hit three key free throws to give Dayton a lead with under a minute left. The Flyers (24-10), of the Atlantic-10 Conference, who have won 11 of 13, advance to play Syracuse, the South Regions third seed on Saturday. The Orange routed Western Michigan 77-53 in their second-round game. Its one and done for the Big Ten Conference Buckeyes (25-10), who were eliminated in the first game for only the third time in 26th tournament appearances. This season, Ohio State got off to a 15-0 start, and then stumbled down the stretch, splitting its final 20 games. The loss marked the end for three seniors, including Craft, who were part of a team that had advanced past the third round in each of the previous three years. Craft had a chance to pull out the win. Driving the length of the court on the Buckeyes last possession, Craft bulled his way through three defenders only to have his 10-footer hit off the backboard and roll off the rim as the buzzer sounded. Craft remained on his back in disappointment as the Flyers rushed to celebrate at their bench at the other end of the court. «I just wanted to do everything I could to help our team win, and down the stretch I couldnt do that today,» Craft said. «I can take the blame for that.» Sam Thompson led Ohio State with 18 points, and Craft scored 16. Craft had no time for questions about whether Dayton can stake claim to being the states better basketball school for one year at least. «Sorry, I have zero thoughts on that right now,» he said. «Im upset at the way we played this game, and the way we didnt take the opportunity and make the most of it.» Craft was involved in a questionable play when he draped his arms around Sibert and was called for an intentional foul with 2:35 left. Sibert hit both free-throws to put Dayton up 55-52, but the Flyers couldnt score on the ensuing possession. Craft made up for that at the other end, when he was fouled while hitting a 6-footer, and then completed the three-point play. Miller was antsy right up to the final buzzer. Having spent two seasons at Ohio State, he was fully aware of Crafts ability to score clutch baskets. «I thought it was going in,» Miller said, referring to Crafts miss at the buzzer. «Ive watched those guys win that game 1,000 times. Hes a bulldozer with the ball. He got it down there in about three dribbles and got a good look. And it ended up rimming out. And we got lucky today.» The Flyers have shown a flare for dramatics this season. Sanfords basket marked the third time the Flyers have won a game on a shot in the final 4 seconds. Sibert hit a three-pointer with one second left in an 81-80 win over IPFW on Nov. 9. Then there was Devin Olivers buzzer-beater in an 83-80 overtime win at Ole Miss on Jan. 4. «A lot of people were going to make a big case out of beating Thad, or beating Ohio State,» Miller said. «We didnt get real complicated. It wasnt about Ohio State or where theyre from, or blah, blah, blah. It was about us.» Adidas Stan Smith Black. — The Atlanta Falcons have signed former offensive lineman Gabe Carimi.
