(SportsNetwork. Astros Jimmy Wynn Jersey .com) - While the Vancouver Canucks are looking to end a lengthy road trip on a positive note, the Montreal Canadiens hope a return home can get them on track. The Canucks close out a seven-game swing versus the sliding Canadiens on Tuesday night at Bell Centre. Vancouver is 3-2-1 on its road trip, but has lost the last two and is coming off a 4-3 overtime setback to the Ottawa Senators on Sunday. The Canucks scored the games first three goals, but the Sens tied the contest before the end of the second period and then got the winner 1:21 into overtime. Radim Vrbata had a goal and an assist, while Brad Richardson and Kevin Bieksa also scored for Vancouver, which got 41 saves from backup goaltender Eddie Lack. (Lack) played so well, Vancouver head coach Willie Desjardins said. That gave us a chance, but we couldnt do it. Vrbata remained hot with six goals and 10 points in his last 10 games. Ryan Miller figures to start the finale for the Canucks and was pulled after 26 minutes of work in a 5-2 loss to Toronto on Saturday. He is 26-11-6 with a 2.34 goals against average and .922 save percentage in his career versus the Canadiens. Tuesday marks the first of five straight at home for the Canadiens, who lost the final three of a four-game road trip and have dropped six of their past seven overall. Montreal has been held to one goal or fewer in four of those games. Carey Price made 25 saves in a 4-1 loss to Dallas on Saturday to conclude the road trip. Rookie forward Sven Andrighetto had the lone goal, lighting the lamp in his NHL debut on a backhander from in close 2:21 into the third period. I saw an opening and just put it in, said Andrighetto. Of course its really nice that I was able to score, but it wouldve been a lot better if we won the game. Already without center Lars Eller due to an upper-body injury suffered in Fridays loss to Chicago, defenseman Mike Weaver sustained a concussion versus the Stars. Neither player practiced on Monday nor are expected to play tonight, while defenseman Bryan Allen did not skate on Monday due to the flu. Winger Michael Bournival, however, was recalled from his conditioning stint on Sunday and could slot into the lineup tonight. He missed 15 games due to a shoulder injury. The Canadiens have won seven of their last 10 versus the Canucks, but had a three-game series winning streak halted with a 3-2 overtime loss in Vancouver on Oct. 30. Miller made 23 saves and Daniel Sedin had the winning goal at 2:45 of OT, taking a feed from Henrik Sedin while on the power play. Price made 27 saves, falling to 5-1-2 in his career versus the Canucks with a 2.34 GAA and .933 save percentage. Montreal has still won seven of the past 10 meetings and is 4-0-1 in the last five encounters at home. Astros Yuli Gurriel Jersey . - Josh Sterk scored twice to lead the Oshawa Generals to a 7-1 rout of the Ottawa 67s in Mondays Ontario Hockey League action. Astros A.

DURHAM, N. Vince Williams Jersey .C. -- Nobody expected Vermont to give No. 6 Duke much of a scare. Yet the Catamounts found a way to score seemingly at will against a program built on defence, and they came perhaps a moment shy of pulling the biggest upset of the young season. Duke needed a free throw from Rodney Hood with 5 seconds left and one final defensive stand to hold off Vermonts upset bid and beat the Catamounts 91-90 on Sunday night. Hector Harold scored 24 points and Clancy Rugg finished with 20 for Vermont (1-5). The America East favourites lost their fourth straight, dressed only nine healthy players but gave Duke all it could handle with by far its best shooting performance of the season. They "came into Duke with no pressure on us, and we played like there was no pressure on us," coach John Becker said. "Maybe this is a lesson learned for our guys." Vermont shot 64.8 per cent -- by far, its best performance of the season and the worst defensive showing by Duke. "We compete and play defence every game and every day at practice," Becker said. "Tonight, the ball went through the basket, and we were able to hang around with a really good team." Candon Rusins four-point play with 10.4 seconds left for Vermont tied it at 90. Hood brought the ball downcourt, drove the lane and drew contact from Rugg. Hood bounced his first free throw off the rim, then swished the second. Sandro Carissimo hurried the Catamounts downcourt and found Rusin in the corner, but he couldnt get a shot off before the buzzer. "We didnt win this game," Hood said. "We kind of deserved to lose the game, and we got lucky." Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said the Catamounts "were terrific." "And we were awful," he added. Jabari Parker scored 26 points in his sixth straight 20-point performance. Hood finished with 22 for Duke (5-1), which extended its nonconference winning streak at Cameron Indoor Stadium to 106 games. Barely. "We played like a team that thought we would just show up and win," Krzyzewski said. "Thats how you get beat." Andre Dawkins scored 16 points and Quinn Cook added 14 for the Blue Devils. Cook broke a tie with a 3-pointer with just under 2 minutes left that made it 86-83. They stretched their lead to 88-84 on Rasheed Sulaimons free throw with 40.8 seconds to play before Carissimo made it a two-point game with his tip-in with 29 seconds remaining. Cook seemingly gave Duke a cushion when his two free throws with 19.4 seconds left made it 90-86 -- but when Sulaimon fouled Rusin on his deep 3-pointer, the Catamounts had another chance. Carissimo finished with 16 points and Luke Apfeld had 10 for Vermont, which fell to 3-17 against ACC schools and is winless against all of them except for Boston College. Yet the Catamounts looked plenty capable of taking advantage of a ripe Duke team that struggled all night to stop them. "Were not connected on the defensive end," Hood said. When the Blue Devils built a 61-49 lead on Parkers steal and fast-break dunk with 15 1/2 minutes left, that looked like the spark that would get the sluggish Duke defence going. Instead, Vermont reeled off 10 straight points after that as part of a 13-2 run. Harolds three-point play pulled the Catamounts to 63-62 with just over 11 minutes left. Carissimos free throw with 7:50 left tied it at 71. Harolds 3 from the key about a minute later put Vermont up 74-73 -- its first lead since early in the first half -- and neither team led by more than four points the rest of the way. Mel Blount Jersey .

Billionaire businessman Mike Ashley is awaiting a civil judges decision on whether he has to pay the legal bills of the Scottish FA and Rangers chairman Dave King. Cardinals Red Schoendienst Jersey . The Sports Direct supremo abandoned a legal action on Thursday in which he wanted to challenge the SFAs decision to class Dave King as a fit and proper person for involvement with the Ibrox side.He decided to drop the action after his legal team received information about Kings finances which the SFA used in their May 2015 deliberations. However, judge Lord Bannatyne is considering legal submissions made by lawyers acting for the SFA and King during proceedings at the Court of Session in Edinburgh on Thursday. They argued that the Newcastle United owner is using the legal system to pursue a vendetta against King. Dave King swept to power at Ibrox in March 2015 Advocate Roddy Dunlop QC for the SFA and Kings counsel, Kenneth McGuire, argue that Ashleys alleged conduct and his decision to drop the proceedings should result in him meeting costs.Mr Dunlop told the court: It is my submission that the petitioner in this case is pursuing a personal vendetta against Mr King and that my clients, the respondents, are simply the collateral damage in pursuit of this vendetta.The case heard in court on Thursday was brought by MASH Holdings Limited, the company which is the ownership mechanism in which Mike Ashley holds his Rangers shares.Ashley believed the SFA should not have allowed King to participate in the day to day running of Rangers because of his tax convictions in South Africa. The businessman admitted to 41 breaches of the South African Income Tax Act and agreed to pay a £43.7m settlement in 2013 following a legal battle there. Rangers lost one-nil away to Livingston to extend their winless run in the Scottish Championship to three games. Ashley originally wanted a Court of Session judge to rule that the SFAs decision was irrational but on Thursday Ashleys lawyer, Craig Sandison QC, told the court that his client had decided to abandon the action.He told the court that the SFA had provided his client with information concerning Kings finances in the last week. The court heard that Scottish footballs governing body had originally refused to disclose the information to Ashley and that it had been its position since June last year.The court also heard that this information was used by the SFA to conclude that Mr King was a fit and proper person. Mr Sandison told the court that in the light of the information, Ashley no longer wished to pursue the judicial review.Mr Sandison also said that if Ashley had been supplied with the information earlier, he would have stopped proceedings at an earlier stage. Glasgow derby for Wembley? The organiser of the International Champions Cup wants to see Celtic v Rangers - at Wembley Stadium. He added: He continues to believe that it was an extraordinary decision but he now no longer wishes to pursue the judicial review. If the respondent had disclosed the information at an earlier stage then the petition would not have been raised.Mr Sandison argued that the court should allow Ashley not to pay the expenses incurred by the SFA and by King, saying his client had raised the judicial review because he wanted to act in what he thought was Rangers best interests.However, Mr Dunlop told the court that legal precedents meant that people in Ashleys position of abandoning cases in the Court of Session should pay costs. The advocate said he did not know until early on Wednesday afternoon that Ashley had decided not to proceed with the action.He added: We were told yesterday at mid-day that this was not proceeding. This will not do. MASH have conducted themselves irresponsibly and it should have to pay expenses. Mike Ashley abandoned a legal action in which he wanted to challenge the SFAs decision to pass Dave King as a fit and proper person MASH cannot demonstrate in law that the decision of the SFA is irrational. It seems that MASH are conducting a personal vendetta against Mr King.Mr McGuire also urged the court to order Ashley to pay the full costs of Kings and the SFAs representation. He said Ashley was attacking the personal character of King and that they did not have any evidence to prove that his client was not a fit and proper person.Mr McGuire added that the information disclosed to Ashley was privileged and that his client had agreed to its disclosure.He added: Mr Ashley is conducting a personal vendetta against Mr King. It is an attack on the personal character of Mr King. If successful it would have a tremendous effect on Mr Kings relationships within the world of football and the world of business. Its nothing more than mudslinging. Dave King swept to power at Ibrox in March 2015 In response, Mr Sandison said that his client was not acting maliciously against King and urged Lord Bannatyne to reject the submissions made by Mr Dunlop and Mr McGuire, adding: There is absolutely no evidence or details of a vendetta between the two.Lord Bannatyne will issue his decision on whether Mr Ashley should pay legal costs in a written judgement which will be issued in the near future, saying: I am taking this to avisandum.

Leblanc had 10 points (five goals and five assists) in 50 career games with Montreal. The 23-year-old from Pointe-Claire, Que., made his NHL debut with the Canadiens in 2011-12, leading team rookies in goals and ranking second in scoring.

Leblanc recorded 68 points (34 goals, 34 assists) and had 146 penalty minutes in 163 American Hockey League regular season games with the Hamilton Bulldogs. Cardinals Yadier Molina Jersey. "After three seasons with the Canadiens organization we felt that moving forward, the best option for Louis and our organization was to give him the opportunity to pursue his career with another team," said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin. "Throughout his entire stay with our organization Louis showed great professionalism and a constant desire to improve. We thank him for his contribution and wish him success for the continuation of his career."

Brooklyn, NY (SportsNetwork. Tigers Jarrod Saltalamacchia Jersey .com) - Mason Plumlee posted 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Brooklyn Nets, who survived a late comeback effort by the Detroit Pistons to hold on for a 110-105 victory at the Barclays Center. Brooklyn had a 15-point fourth-quarter lead cut down to one after Kentavious Caldwell-Pope buried a 3-point shot with 9.8 seconds left, but held off the Pistons over the remainder to halt a three-game losing streak. Plumlee went 9-of-10 from the field and Joe Johnson recorded 16 points and seven assists for the Nets. Jarrett Jack, starting in place of an injured Deron Williams, contributed 15 points and 10 assists to the win. Caldwell-Pope finished with 20 points and Andre Drummond had 18 along with 20 rebounds -- 13 on the offensive end. However, the Pistons couldnt complete the rally and fell for the 17th time in 19 games. Greg Monroe delivered 16 points on 7-of-10 shooting and pulled down eight boards in the loss. Tigers Willie Horton Jersey . Kelli Stack and Alex Carpenter also scored for the Americans, who avoided a repeat of Finlands upset at the Four Nations Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y., in November. Finnish goalie Noora Raty made 58 saves in that one, but the three-time Olympian could stop just 40 of 43 U. Tigers Joe Jimenez Jersey . Redden played a total of 1,023 regular-season games with Ottawa, the New York Rangers, St. Louis and Boston. He finished with 457 points (109 goals, 348 assists) and a plus-160 rating over his career.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- No. 3 Ohio State had reeled off double-digit wins in its first 10 games. As Delawares players watched some of the film from those victories, they began to wonder, "What would the Buckeyes do if they were in a tight game?" They found out on Wednesday night, hanging around for most of the game before falling 76-64. "Thats one of the things that we realized, looking at their past games -- that they really hadnt been in a dogfight," said Jarvis Threatt, who had 14 points and nine rebounds for the Blue Hens (5-6). "We just tried to make it a game and we fell a little short." LaQuinton Ross scored 19 points, including eight in a decisive 15-0 run in the middle of the game, for Ohio State (11-0), while Lenzelle Smith Jr. had 14, Aaron Craft 12, Amir Williams added 11 points and 12 rebounds and Amedeo Della Valle finished with 10 points. The Blue Hens led by as many as six points in the opening 4 minutes. They never led after Marvin King-Davis hit a short jumper with 3:31 left in the half to put them up 26-25. Then the Buckeyes ran off the last 12 points of the half to take a 37-26 lead and then Ross opened the second half by hitting a 3-pointer. Still, Delaware didnt fold. The Blue Hens twice cut the lead to eight points, the last time at 68-60 with 1:48 remaining on a second consecutive layup by Saddler right down the heart of the lane. But Smith hit a jumper and two free throws and the game was out of reach. "Our guys stood toe-to-toe for the most part with who Im going to call the best team in the country," Delaware coach Monte Ross said. "Im just going to say that and Im going to keep saying that because we played them. I hope they win every game the rest of the way." Saddler, still rounding into shaape after a seven-game disciplinary suspension, had 17 points to lead the Blue Hens, who have lost three straight. Tigers Blaine Hardy Jersey. It was their second of three games in six days, all in the BlackRock Gotham Classic. Both teams will be playing in the same final round of the "tournament" at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, with the Blue Hens meeting Bryant and Ohio State squaring off against Notre Dame. "We played good but there were some things at our own end that we didnt capitalize on for us to pull out the win," said Davon Usher, who had eight points, seven rebounds, a block and a steal for Delaware. "We felt we had a chance to come in here and win but we just messed up on some things on our part." The Blue Hens hung tough despite being outrebounded 46-30. Ohio States guards -- Craft and Shannon Scott -- are considered among the best defensive tandems in the country. But the Blue Hens gashed them for 28 points in the paint, mostly on one-on-one drives through the middle of the defence. "We knew that Delaware has a heck of basketball team," Buckeyes coach Thad Matta said. "Theyve got guys who can really score it. They hit some difficult shots, but thats what they do and theyre good at it." The Blue Hens fell to 0-8 against Big Ten teams, 0-17 against Top 10 teams and 0-29 against ranked opponents. The only time the Blue Hens played a higher-ranked team was No. 2 Duke last season. But this loss certainly wasnt because they were intimidated. "I told our guys coming in, we couldnt blink," Delawares Ross said. "It was a terrific environment for college basketball that Ohio State, overstating the obvious, is used to playing in. But our guys didnt shrink from the moment or the atmosphere." Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer JerseysJerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '

MONACO -- Maybe Shaun White was right all along. Warren Sapp Jersey . An International Olympic Committee official charged with monitoring injury rates at the games says the new discipline of slopestyle produced an "unacceptably high" number of injuries in its debut at the Sochi Olympics and should be dropped in future if that doesnt improve. In an interview, Lars Engebretsen said injury rates in ski and snowboard slopestyle were higher than for any other discipline in Sochi. Asked if slopestyle could lose its Olympic spot, Engebretsen replied: "Thats the potential." "The only reason why slopestyle should be taken, could be taken out is the safety concerns," he said. White withdrew from snowboard slopestyle in Sochi, saying "the potential risk of injury is a bit too much." Engebretsen is head of scientific activities at the IOCs medical and scientific department. Cheap Football Buccaneers Jerseys .

Altogether, they have 16 of the teams first 22 goals this season and have collected 17 assists.Our lines working pretty well right now, said Pearson, who scored twice in the third period. Were getting chances at the net and things are happening for us. Youve got to ride it when you can.The game was marred by a frightening injury to Columbus left wing Nick Foligno with 11:34 left in third period. Carter checked him along the boards in front of the Kings bench and Folignos head rammed into the elbow of linesman Shane Heyer, who had jumped on top of the dasher in an attempt to avoid both players.Foligno was put in a neck brace and wheeled off the ice on a stretcher after a long delay.Youre more concerned about your teammate and the person than you are about the game. The game obviously becomes secondary, coach Todd Richards said. My understanding is that hes alert, and hell be travelling back with us.Teammate Ryan Murray added: We know its serious when he does stay down, and we were all worried about him and praying for the beat.The Kings swept a homestand of at least six games for the first time in franchise history, according to STATS. In two of the wins, they were outshot 43-18 by St. Louis and 41-16 by Minnesota.Even before it began, we felt from a team perspective that we wanted to have a solid homestand and come away with more wins than losses, Pearson said. Now weve just got to keep it going.Dwight King also scored for the Kings, and Jonathan Quick made 22 saves. Quick, who broke Rogie Vachons club record with his 33rd shutout on Thursday in a 2-0 victory over Buffalo, has yielded just four goals on 169 shots over his last five starts — including a 1-0 shootout win against the Blues.Columbus goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky, who was looking for his 100th NHL victory, stopped 22 shots. Defenceman Tim Erixon scored his first NHL goal and Mark Letestu also scored for Columbus.Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr assisted on the go-ahead goal at 16:30 of the second period. His long slap shot hit traffic in front, but Carter set up Toffoli at the lefft of the net for his fourth goal. Chris Godwin Jersey. For a good part of the game we were competing, working hard and doing a lot of good things against the defending Stanley Cup champions, Richards said. But there were a couple of plays where we just shut down for a moment in our own zone, the puck was in the back of our net, and all the hard work went out the window.King and Letestu traded goals in final 1 1/2 minutes of the second period. Letestu beat Quick high to the glove side with a screened wrist shot from the top of the left circle just 32 seconds after King got his first of the season.Pearson increased the Kings lead to 4-2 with 8:11 to play, outracing James Wisniewski to a loose puck after Toffoli flipped it across high in the air across the neutral zone from deep in his own end.We were out there for a little while, so I was kind of tired and just kind of flipped it out, Toffoli said. Obviously Tanner can skate, he got there and made a great shot.Erixons goal at 14:39 of first, which came during Drew Doughtys interference penalty, ended the Kings streak of 18 consecutive penalty kills.Kings defenceman Matt Greene, who spent 17 minutes of the first period in the penalty box after his fight with Corey Tropp, pushed Artem Anisimov into Quick at the left of the net at 1:32 of second — and Anisimov was penalized for goalie interference by referee Dennis LaRue.Johansens hooking penalty gave Kings a 5-on-3 advantage for 50 seconds, and Carter scored the tying goal 22 seconds later after Anze Kopitar fanned on Toffolis pass through the crease. Kopitar played 15 shifts totalling about 10 1/2 minutes before leaving the game with an upper-body injury.Columbus right wing Cam Atkinson did not play after getting cut near the right eye by the skate of Anaheims Ryan Kesler during Fridays 4-1 loss.NOTES: Eight minutes into the second period, Quick joined Vachon and Kelly Hrudey as the only goaltenders to play at least 20,000 minutes in a Kings uniform during the regular season. ...

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins entered the off-season with a desperate need for starting pitching, and theyre off to a pretty great start in addressing it. Sidney Jones Jersey . Right-hander Ricky Nolasco and the Twins agreed to terms on a free-agent contract Wednesday, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press. The person requested anonymity because the team does not plan to announce a deal until Nolasco passes a physical. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but Yahoo! Sports reported that it was for four years and $49 million. Thats a hefty price for the Twins, who historically have been reluctant to hand out big-money deals to free agents. Prior to Nolascos contract, the most the Twins had spent on a free agent who did not come through their system was the three-year, $21 million deal they gave Josh Willingham in 2011. But their need was acute and Nolasco was widely considered one of the top available free agents in a thin crop of starting pitchers. Hes walked just 2.1 hitters per nine innings for his career, which makes him a perfect fit for the Twins, who have always placed a premium on control from their starters. Pitching to contact has become a bit of a sore spot for Twins fans, who have watched their teams starting staff get bludgeoned while throwing strike after strike right down the middle. But Nolasco also has a healthy 7.4 strikeouts per nine innings, and hes shown the ability to get out of jams without letting the hitter put the ball in play. Nolascos Twitter account already has a Twins logo as its avatar, and this beleaguered team will no doubt be just as eager to welcome him into the fold. Nolasco pitched at least 185 innings in five of the last six seasons and will immediately slot in right near the top of what was the worst pitching staff in the majors last year. The Twins have lost at least 96 games in each of the last three seasons, thanks in most part to their woeful starting pitching. Last year the starters had an ERA of 5.26. Toronto was the next worse at 4.81. Only two of their starters had ERAs under 5.00, with Samuel Dedunos 3.83 leading the way and Kevin Correias pedestrian 4.18 next. The Twins have also inquired about veteran Bronson Arroyo among other available arms, and are expected to continue adding players to beef up the rotation. Matt Garza and Phil Hughes are among the other viable options, and the Twins also could bring back Mike Pelfrey for depth. Tre Sullivan Jersey . -- Andrew Wiggins is from Canada, Wayne Selden from Massachusetts and Joel Embiid from the African nation of Cameroon. Rasul Douglas Jersey .com) - The Carolina Hurricanes hope to remain perfect at home in January on Friday night as they welcome the Vancouver Canucks to PNC Arena.TEMPE, Ariz. -- Outside linebacker John Abraham has left the Arizona Cardinals and is considering retiring from the game. Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said on Wednesday that Abraham, the games active sacks leader and ninth on the NFLs career list with 133 1/2, has been granted a leave of absence. The team obtained a roster exemption, using it to re-sign linebacker Marcus Benard. The 36-year-old Abraham sustained a concussion in Monday nights 18-17 season-opening victory over San Diego. But Arians said he had a long talk with Abraham on Tuesday and the concussion was not the main reason the player was considering leaving the game. Arians said that while Abraham goes through the NFL-mandated concussion protocol, he "will determine if he wants to continue playing football, whether his hearts still in it and he has the fire and desire to do it." Abraham, in his 15th NFL season, has five days under NFL rules before the Cardinals must either reinstate him or declare him out for the season. He missed nearly all of training camp to, as he later confirmed, undergo rehabilitation treatment for an alcohol problem. The rehab stint came after he was arrested in suburban Atlanta and charged with drunken driving. "I think with all the things that hes gone through in the last month, hes got a lot of things outside of football that hes never dealt with before," Arians said. "There are some people that can help him in that regard. Im not one of them." Arians said that "there are things Im not clinically smart enough to know what depression is and things like that so theres many issues that could be involved." Abraham, who had no tackles against the Chargers, expressed concern about whether he was hurting the team, Arians said. "If that game on Monday night football and that atmosphere didnt have you flying around like always or more, then somethings missing," the coach saidd, "and thats basically what he reflected to me. Mike Wallace Jersey. He said There were times in that game I wasnt in it and its not fair to my teammates. Ive got to decide if this is still what I really want to do." Abraham is in the second year of a two-year contract. He led the Cardinals with 11 1/2 sacks last season and made the Pro Bowl for the sixth time. He needs nine sacks to pass Michael Strahan for fifth on the career sacks list. Abraham played six seasons for the New York Jets and seven for the Atlanta Falcons before coming to Arizona as a free agent. "Were all hoping and praying for him, hoping he returns back to normal," quarterback Carson Palmer said. "Obviously, were going to miss him and miss his production. Somebody else has to step up. Coach Arians motto is next man up. Somebodys got to find a way to replace his production." The injury is another significant loss for the Arizona defence. Defensive tackle Darnell Dockett tore an ACL in training camp and is out for the season. The team already was without its two standout inside linebackers from a year ago. Karlos Dansby left for Cleveland via free agency and Daryl Washington is suspended for the season for violating the NFLs substance-abuse policy. Arians said Abraham told him that this was his first concussion, something that teammate Lorenzo Alexander doubts is true. "Playing this game everybodys had multiple concussions. Whether or not theyre diagnosed is something totally different," Alexander said. "Im pretty sure hes had multiple concussions throughout his career like we all have. This was probably his first documented one." Arians said Sam Acho would move into Abrahams spot. "Johns a leader. Hes a guy that leads by example," Acho said. "You look at his film, the way he plays the game. I watch Johns film to see what I can do better." Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington decided it was time to shake up his lineup a bit. Angelo Blackson Jersey . With a few switches in the batting order, and an impressive performance by young starter Nick Tepesch, the Rangers ended their longest losing streak in nearly nine years. Adrian Beltre homered and Shin-Soo Choo had three hits in his return to the leadoff spot while Tepesch allowed only three singles over 7 1-3 scoreless innings, and the Rangers beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Friday night. "He was outstanding. We needed a well-pitched game and he gave it to us," said Washington, who liked his lineup. "Well run the same one out there tomorrow and see what happens." The Rangers went into the opener of the weekend series mired in its first eight-game losing streak since August 2005. "Its nice to end any negative streak," said Beltre, who added a sacrifice fly in the eighth that proved to be the margin of victory. "Its one of those things, you dont want to throw any at-bat away." Minnesota has lost its last nine road games, including a three-game sweep at the Los Angeles Angels before getting to Texas. The Twins came up short after scoring four runs in the ninth off Texas closer Joakim Soria, making only his second appearance since June 14. Choo led off for the first time in 18 games while Carlos Pena, in only his fourth game back with the Rangers, took over the No. 3 spot where Choo had hit .149 (10 for 67) since June 7. And Washingtons change paid off immediately when Choo had a leadoff single in the first and scored on Beltres ninth homer, which just cleared the fence and landed in the Rangers bullpen in right-centre field. "I said earlier that doesnt make a difference. I knew this would happen after the game and I was sure people would ask me about it, but its not ... I dont think anything changed as far as approach," Choo said about leading off, though he acknowledged that, "Im a little more comfortable there, Ive done it for the last two years." Tepesch (3-3) struck out five, walked two and hit two batters, while matching his longest major league start. He has won all three of his career starts against the Twins, allowing only three earned runs in 20 2-3 innings. "Just able to command all four of my pitches, and just commanding them in the zone and out of the zone," Tepesch said. Kevin Correia (4-9) allowed four runs and six hits over six innings. The right-hander, who struck out three and walked two, had given up only two earned runs over 18 innings his previous three starts. Jason Frasor and Neal Cotts each got an out in the eighth after Tepesch gave up a one-out hit to Minnesota leadoff hitter Brian Dozer. Jorge Polancos two-run triple in the ninth for his first major league hit that made it 5-4. Soria, who had given up just one earned over 20 2-3 innings his previous 22 games, then got a strikeout and grounder to end the game. Luis Sardinas and Choo had RBI doubles in the fifth, both on balls that left fielder Josh Willingham tried to catch. Sardinas hit a sinking liner down the left-field line that rolled into the corner after Willingham made a diving attempt to catch it. Choo hit a flyball that glanced off Willinghams glove when he ran into the 14-foot fence. "Diving full out down the line, diving up against the wall in left field," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "What cant you like about that? Hes trying to make a play." NOTES: Rangers ace Yu Darvish (7-4, 2.62 ERA) is scheduled to start Saturday. He lost his last two starts, allowing 12 runs (eight earned) over 11 innings. ... Phil Hughes (8-3) pitches the middle game for the Twins. ... 1B/OF Brad Snyder declined an outright assignment to Triple-A Round Rock and took free agency Friday, three days after the Rangers designated him for assignment.Jordan Thomas Jersey . Sami Salo scored two goals as the Canucks overcame a hat-trick from Edmonton Oiler rookie sensation Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to win 4-3 in NHL action Saturday. Cheap Throwback Texans Jerseys . Torres calmly stroked a 51st-minute spot kick down the middle with goalkeeper Romel Quinonez diving right to convert a penalty earned by Javi Martinez. Spain controlled play at the Sanchez Pizjuan but found it hard to convert against a well-organized Bolivian team before Iniesta charged forward to curl around Quinonez in the 84th to seal victory.PORTLAND, Ore. - Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts took it upon himself to address Damian Lillards night.You dont have to ask whats wrong with Damian anymore, Stotts said. Actually, you dont ever have to ask.That question was better asked about LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Tuesday night.Lillard had a breakthrough with 27 points and Portland regained last seasons form with a 101-82 victory.The Blazers, who snapped a brief two-game losing streak, held James to just 11 points.Lillard had been nursing an abdominal strain but he started nonetheless and collected 15 points by halftime — after averaging just 13.7 points on 11-for-41 shooting in the first three games. The All-Star averaged 20.7 points last season.Its the same game that I have been playing, Lillard explained. The only difference was the shots went in.The Cavaliers, playing the first of a three-game Western Conference road swing, hadnt played since a 114-108 overtime victory at Chicago on Friday. They started fast but were doomed by poor-shooting nights by James (4 of 12) and Kyrie Irving (3 of 17).We have to understand what it takes to win. Its going to be a long process. Theres been a lot of losing basketball around here for a few years, James said.Wesley Matthews finished with 21 points for Portland.It felt really good to get back into the swing of things, Matthews said, and back to us.Kevin Love, who grew up in Oregon and played at Lake Oswego High School south of Portland, had his third straight double-double for Cleveland (1-2) with 22 points and 10 rebounds. Love and LaMarcus Aldridge — who finished with 16 points — battled much of the way.The Cavaliers made their first 10 shots and James hit consecutive 3-pointers to put Cleveland up 27-20 early. The Blazers answered with a 9-0 run.Lillard hit a 3-pointer and a pair of free throws and Portland led 55-50 at the break. He opened the second half with a dunk.Portland stretched the lead to 67-54 on Aldridges layup and led 76-69 going into the fourth. Cheap Texans Super Bowl Jerseys. The Blazers led by as many as 19 points in the final period.James urged patience.Its like building a car from scratch. Ive done that before, he said. I hated the process, it got on my nerves. I sent it back to get repainted 100 times. But once it was completely finished I was excited about it.Lillard finished with five 3-pointers on 10 attempts and was a perfect 10 of 10 from the free throw line. That tied his career mark for most free throws in a game without a miss.I knew that eventually the ball would go in, he said. I just had to stick with it.___TIP-INSCavaliers: Coach David Blatt, who had a long coaching career overseas before he arrived in Cleveland, recalled how Blazers coach Terry Stotts once visited him in Istanbul to watch him work. Stotts was between jobs and studying different teams and coaches. It was mutually beneficial, Blatt said. ... Love has scored 20-plus points in his last seven games in Portland.Trail Blazers: F Joel Freeland was ruled out of his second straight game because of a left foot injury. ... The Blazers held a moment of silence before the game for former team president Herman Sarkowski, who stepped in with a last-minute investment that helped secure Portlands bid for the team in 1970. Sarkowski died Sunday in Seattle at age 89. ... Aldridge has a 13-3 advantage in games against Love.DEFENDING JAMES: While Aldridge and Love matched up, several players were assigned to James, including Matthews and Nicolas Batum. Hes arguably the best player in the game and hell go down as one of the greatest to ever play, so you just try to make everything difficult and tough for him, Matthews said.EARNEST ASSESSMENT: I just dont think we brought it tonight to be honest, Blatt said. I dont think we brought intensity. I dont think we brought a kind of mindset to defend, and that caught up with us.UP NEXTCavaliers: Visit Utah on Wednesday.Trail Blazers: Host Dallas on Thursday. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From ChinaWholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys Authentic Cheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB JerseysCheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '

The Edmonton Oilers are looking to add depth to their blue line, as the team has acquired the negotiating rights to pending unrestricted free agent defenceman Nikita Nikitin from the Columbus Blue Jackets. Cardinals Paul DeJong Jersey . While not an official trade, the Oilers simply have a window in which its permissible to negotiate with Nikitin. Nikitin, 28, scored two goals and tallied 15 points in 66 games with the Blue Jackets last season. In 206 games with the Blue Jackets and St. Louis Blues, he has 13 goals and 65 points. Cardinals Alex Reyes Jersey . "Im not even that added up," the 39-year-old Australian replied.

Rodgers, who was also won the award in 2011, garnered 31 of the 50 available votes from a nationwide media panel. He beat out Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt to win the award, which is given by the Associated Press. Watt was a unanimous pick as Defensive Player of the Year after a dominant season, becoming just the seventh player ever to win the award twice after previously receiving it in 2012. Rodgers, 31, guided the Packers to a 12-4 record and an appearance in the NFC Championship game against Seattle. He completed 341-of-520 passes for 4,381 yards and 38 touchdowns with just five interceptions for a 112.2 rating. In his fourth season with the Texans, Watt was a defensive juggernaut, racking up 20 1/2 sacks for the second time in three seasons. He had 78 tackles, four forced fumbles, a safety and an interception returned for a touchdown. The 25-year-old also contributed on the offensive side of the ball, catching three touchdown passes. Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was honored as the Offensive Player of the Year after guiding his team to an NFC East title as the leagues top rusher. He ran for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns on 392 attempts and led the NFL with 2,261 yards from scrimmage. Arizonas Bruce Arians became the first coach in NFL history to be awarded Coach of the Year honors multiple times in a three-year span with more than one team. He won the award in 2012 with Indianapolis. In his second season with the Cardinals, Arians led the team to a franchise record-tying 11 wins and a postseason berth. He joined Don Coryell as the only coaches in team history to win 10-plus games in consecutive seasons. Cardinals Patrick Wisdom Jersey.

His 606 yards in December are the most by any rookie in a single month.

Donald led all rookies with nine sacks and also compiled 48 tackles with two forced fumbles over 16 games (12 starts).

TORONTO - With training camp just around the corner, the Toronto Raptors have formally announced the addition of forward Chris Wright and guards Julyan Stone and Carlos Morais. Pirates Trevor Williams Jersey . Terms of Thursdays signings were not disclosed but all three deals are believed to be non-guaranteed, allowing the new additions to attend training camp - beginning in Toronto on Oct. 1 - and compete for the teams final available roster spot. Wright, 24, participated on the Raptors 2013 Summer League team in Las Vegas, averaging 10.0 points and 3.2 rebounds in five games. After attending camp with Toronto in 2012 the athletic forward, listed at 6-8, played for the Maine Red Claws of the NBA Development League where he appeared in 39 games and ranked 10th in scoring pouring in 18.3 points per contest. Stone averaged 1.7 points and 1.5 rebounds in 26 games regular season games with the Denver Nuggets over the last two years, also appearing in four playoff contests. The 24-year-old point guard was expected to sign a guaranteed deal with the Raptors earlier this summer before lingering knee and hip injuries put the agreement on ice. Raptors General Manager Masai Ujiri, who previously acquired Stone in Denver, had maintained that the guard would be given another opportunity to earn a spot on the roster if and when he proved to be healthy. Morais (pronounced MORE-EYE-AS) is coming off an MVP performance for gold medal-winning Angola at the 2013 FIBA Africa championship where he scored 15.9 points to go along with 4.6 boards. The 27-year-old combo guard is looking to become the first Angolan-born player to make an NBA roster. The teams roster stands at 17 going into camp but must be trimmed down to 15 prior to the season debut in Boston on Oct. 30. Torontos roster has 14 guaranteed contracts after veteran guard/forward Quentin Richardson was waived last week. The Raptors are set to open camp at the Air Canada Centre on October 1st before heading to Halifax for two days (Oct 4-5) where they will hold a couple of private practices and a public scrimmage. Their eight-game pre-season schedule kicks off on Oct. 7 with a visit to Boston to face Toronto-native Kelly Olynyk and the new-look Celtics. Pirates Ivan Nova Jersey .C. -- With a chance to start over and maybe drive in any series he wanted, Juan Pablo Montoya thought long and hard about what mattered most at this stage of his career. Pirates Colin Moran Jersey .ca. Hi Kerry, Love reading your column and loved watching your analysis on the TSN broadcasts!And were now in Round 2! Bruins! Canadiens! We know all about the great games of the past from the players, the broadcasters and the writers.DENVER -- Backup catcher Hector Sanchez played a starring role in a wild win. He could get used to this. Sanchez hit two of San Franciscos six homers, including a grand slam in the 11th inning Wednesday that gave the Giants a thrilling 12-10 victory over the Colorado Rockies. With the Giants on the verge of being swept in a three-game series at Coors Field for the first time in 12 years, Sanchez drove a fastball from Chad Bettis (0-1) into the bushes behind centre field. He also hit a solo homer in the eighth. "Everybody wants to be the hero," said Sanchez, who was spelling Buster Posey in a day game following a night contest. "Everybody wants to do well." Catching the entire game, Sanchez was starting to feel his legs cramp in the late innings. It certainly didnt affect his swing, as he fouled off quite a few pitches from Bettis before connecting. He almost instantly raised his hand because, "I knew it was out of the park," he said. So did Bettis. But the reliever had no other choice than to try to blow a fastball by him with the count full and bases loaded. "I put myself in a bad spot and got hurt for it," Bettis said. Michael Morse also hit two homers -- a solo shot in the second and a three-run homer the following inning -- as two Giants hit multiple homers in the same game for the first time since May 25, 2005. Brandon Hicks and Brandon Belt also went deep for the Giants, who rallied from a 5-1, second-inning deficit. "I mean, were down 5-1, looking at getting swept here and they fought hard, found a way to win a game here," said manager Bruce Bochy, who was ejected in the fourth for arguing balls and strikes. "It makes for a better flight home." Jean Machi (4-0) got one out in the 10th to earn the win. Sergio Romo struggled in a non-save situation, surrendering a two-run homer to Justin Morneau but retiring Brandon Barnes on a game-ending 5-4-3 double play. Hunter Pence led off the 11th with a single and Belt followed with a walk. After a sacrifice, Joaquin Arias was intentionally walked to get to Sanchez, who delivered his first career slam. Sanchez finished with a career-higgh five RBIs. Pirates Jesus Liranzo Jersey. "We got the victory, and thats the best part," he said. With him playing a central role, too, on a day when starter Matt Cain struggled. The righty allowed seven runs, 10 hits and three walks in six innings and is 0-3 with a 4.35 ERA in five starts. Charlie Blackmon finished 2 for 5 with a homer and four runs -- lowering his batting average to .410. Troy Tulowitzki added a two-run homer and Nolan Arenado extended his hitting streak to 14 games with an RBI double in the seventh. Belts two-run homer in the seventh gave the Giants a 7-6 lead and came off Rex Brothers. The hard-throwing lefty surrendered a game-ending, 10th-inning homer to Brandon Crawford on April 13. Arenado tied the game with an RBI double off Cain. With two on and no outs, reliever Jeremy Affeldt was summoned into the game and got the Giants out of the predicament. "We had Cain on the ropes early, but weve seen him do that before, where he battles and competes and somehow finds a way to stick around until late in the game," manager Walt Weiss said. "Hes done that a handful of times against us. We had opportunities to really put that game away." Still, it was a productive homestand for the Rockies as they wound up 4-2. "We are a team with confidence," Weiss said. "I feel like the energy in the dugout is always good, even when we get down. Even being down four in that last inning, with Romo in the game, still a lot of energy and guys feeling like we could put something together and win the game. I feel good about our mentality." NOTES: Giants 3B Pablo Sandoval left in the seventh with a stomach virus. .... Hicks had to stop at second on his double in the eighth when a fan reached over the railing to grab it. ... Bochy tinkered with his starting lineup, resting Posey and OF Angel Pagan, whos been bothered by knee soreness. Pagan entered as a pinch hitter in the eighth and grounded out. Posey was intentionally walked in the 10th. ... Bochy said Pagan will have his knee checked out Thursday in San Francisco. ... Morneau finished the homestand with nine hits, including two doubles, three homers and 11 RBIs. Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale Nike Baseball Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys From China Wholesale Jerseys China Wholesale NFL Jerseys China Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys AuthenticCheap NHL Jerseys Canada Cheap Nike MLB Jerseys Cheap Soccer Jerseys China NCAA Jerseys Cheap Nike NHL Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys Store Cheap Football Jerseys Store Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Jerseys NCAA China Jerseys NFL Cheap Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys ' ' '
