VANCOUVER - Theyll share the sidelines at B.C. Place as opponents Sunday, but Grey Cup head coaches Kent Austin and John Hufnagel have a CFL history together.Austin began his CFL career with the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1987, when Hufnagel was a player-coach with the club. Austin went on to play 10 seasons with the Riders, B.C. Lions, Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers, winning two Grey Cups (89 with Riders, 94 with Lions) and passing for over 36,000 yards.But on Wednesday, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats head coach and general manager credited Hufnagel, the head coach/GM of the Calgary Stampeders, with helping him make a seamless transition to the three-down game following his collegiate career at Ole Miss.Ive got a lot of respect for John, Austin said. It (Canadian football) was a different game, a totally different game than what I was comfortable with and used to.Having somebody like John to kind of cut the corners, to give you the shortcuts that you needed to at least have a chance to be successful early on instead of going through huge growing pains with a guy that didnt have a lot of experience playing the position, was a huge benefit.And it was clear Wednesday that Austin still holds Hufnagel in high regard, allowing the Calgary coach to answer questions first and often agreeing with his counterpart.Hufnagel, 63, remembers a young Austin taking advantage of his chance to play after injuries to other quarterbacks, including Hufnagel.My first year as a coach, I was a player-coach, and that player part of it only lasted three quarters then I tore my Achilles tendon, he said. We had two young quarterbacks at the time, Jeff Bentrim and Tom Burgess, (but) they were injured.I brought Jeff Tedford up (but) he lasted four plays and broke his foot. And in that timeframe, Kent walks in, and prepares himself to play and his first start was against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in Hamilton. He won his first start, had a terrific football game.Hufnagel and Austin followed similar paths to their current positions.Both played at major U.S. colleges (Hufnagel starred at Penn State) and spent time in the NFL before coming to Canada. After winning Grey Cups as players, Hufnagel and Austin began their coaching careers in the CFL, then headed to the U.S. before returning north of the border to head up their respective franchises football operations departments.After serving as an assistant with Saskatchewan (88) and Calgary (90-96), Hufnagel took over as head coach/GM of the Arena Football Leagues New Jersey Red Dogs. He had stints in the NFL as quarterbacks coach with Cleveland, Indianapolis, Jacksonville and New England and offensive co-ordinator with the New York Giants before returning to the Stampeders.During his time in the NFL, Hufnagel had the opportunity to coach big-name quarterbacks Peyton and Eli Manning as well as Tom Brady, earning a Super Bowl ring with New England in 2003.Hufnagel said he didnt have a burning desire to leave the CFL when he left for New Jersey. But after being bypassed for three head-coaching positions while an assistant with Calgary, Hufnagel said he wasnt about to let the next opportunity pass him by.Once all the smoke cleared (in 95) I was still an assistant coach with the Calgary Stampeders, which was fine, Hufnagel said. But I did say that to myself the next time the phone rings and a head coaching job is offered, I would accept it, no matter what the time of year.And happened to be the New Jersey Red Dogs . . . and thats why I left the CFL, to take advantage of a head coaching job.Austin finished his playing career after the 96 season with Winnipeg. He joined the Ottawa Renegades quarterbacks coach in 03 before becoming Torontos offensive co-ordinator. He was hired as Saskatchewans head coach in 07. After winning a Grey Cup he returned to Ole Miss as the offensive co-ordinator and then spent three seasons as Cornells head coach before returning north with Hamilton in 2013.Austin and Hufnagel are the only ones in the CFL with the dual coach/GM titles, with Austin also being Hamiltons director of football operations.Im not sure its an advantage, its a little bit more single-minded as far as the direction you want to take, Hufnagel said. And everybody thats working for you has that single direction.Its a lot easier to get things you want as far as the grocery list. And so I enjoy it. Its a unique position, and I relish the job that I have in Calgary.Austin agreed.I would just reiterate what John said, he said. I mean, it gives you the ability to choose your team and to piece the puzzle together the way that you and your staff believe is the best....At the end of the day, if you can make the decision to build your team, then the buck really falls with us to put together a team that has a chance.Hufnagel has certainly put Calgary in position to win since his return, amassing an impressive 89-36-1 regular-season record. But some football pundits point to Calgarys 6-5 playoff record and just one Grey Cup title over that span. Twenty-five players remain from the Stampeders squad that lost the 100th Grey Cup game to Toronto in 2012 and Hufnagel said those individuals have a chance Sunday to end the negative talk.Theres been a lot of things said about this group of players over the years, he said. Until they do something about it, its going to keep on being said.I dont judge myself, thats what you guys (reporters) do. I just go to work every day and try to do the best job I can. We have a pretty good regular-season record and were batting one game over 500 in the playoffs. Im not so sure theres a whole lot of teams over the last seven years that can say that.Austin is appearing in a third straight Grey Cup as a head coach, winning in 07 with Saskatchewan before losing last years finale to the Riders at Mosaic Stadium. The truth of the matter is you have to have many great people around you, Austin said. Ive been really fortunate to have the ability to have a great staff, first and foremost, have a great organization in both cases that produced an environment to allow us to be successful.Hufnagel said the first coaches to make a favourable impression upon him as a player were the late Joe Paterno at Penn State and Cal Murphy, the longtime Winnipeg head coach/GM who died in 2012. Once he became a coach, Hufnagel credits New England coach Bill Belichik and B.C. Lions GM Wally Buono, Hufnagels head coach in Calgary, as the ones whove influenced him the most.Cal was a tremendous football coach, Hufnagel said. I really respected how he handled the day-to-day functions of the team and how he handled the players.Having one year with (Belichik) was a bonus as far as me developing into a head coach because of the structure that he brings to a football team. Wally, well, I based most of my organization and how we do things from Wallys program. Those three have had a big impact on whatever Ive accomplished in coaching. O. J. Howard Jersey .That means, of course, that John Wall beat the Spurs for the first time ever within weeks of his first wins in head-to-head games against nemeses Chris Paul and Derrick Rose. Kevin Pamphile Jersey . His absence against the Celtics comes a day after he scored 43 points in the Heats 100-96 win at Cleveland. http://www.shoptheofficialbuccaneers.com/Elite-Ronde-Barber-Buccaneers-Jersey/ . Bayern led second-place Leverkusen by 10 points with a game in hand, while Dortmund was another four points off the pace. Freiburg midfielder Felix Klaus scored in the last minute as his side twice came from behind to climb provisionally out of the relegation zone. Warren Sapp Jersey . At least 90 players who had college eligibility remaining are expected to enter the draft, shattering last years record number of 73. "Its a humongous number, so the first reaction is it makes you step back a little bit," said NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout with the Baltimore Ravens, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. Davonte Lambert Jersey . They were right in that they responded to coach Randy Carlyles goaltending switch to erase a two-goal deficit.The Winnipeg Goldeyes just didnt have an answer for Joe Dunigan Wednesday night. In the middle game of a three-game series, the Goldeyes (18-12) watched Dunigan drive in all three runs for the New Jersey Jackals in a 3-2 loss in 10 innings at Yogi Berra Stadium in Little Falls, N.J. The loss marks the first time this season Winnipeg has lost three consecutive games and drops the Goldeyes record to 5-7 all-time in Can-Am League ballparks.  In the bottom of the 10th, Alonzo Harris led off with a single and then stole second base. After Richard Arias laid down a bunt to move Harris to third, Dunigan singled off Goldeyes reliever Gabe Aguilar, who came in to face Dunigan after Kyle Bellamy started the inning, and Harris easily scored the winning run. Winnipegs two runns came off the bat of Donnie Webb in the fourth inning, as Webbs two-run home run gave the Goldeyes a 2-1 lead.dddddddddddd Dunigan hit solo home runs off Winnipeg starter Nick Hernandez in the first and sixth innings to account for New Jerseys other two runs. The Goldeyes had just five hits in the game and no player had a multi-hit night. Aside from the two home runs, Hernandez was fantastic for the Goldeyes. He struck out nine Jackals in seven innings of work and gave up just one walk. It was his third consecutive quality start. Salvador Sanchez pitched two innings of scoreless relief to get the win, while Bellamy took the loss for Winnipeg. Chris Kissock and Brendan Lafferty also saw action out of the bullpen, combining for 1 2/3 of scoreless work.

Melbourne, Australia (SportsNetwork.com) - Former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro has withdrawn from the upcoming Australian Open because of a wrist injury. Del Potro had wrist surgery last March and missed the remainder of the 2014 season. He made his 2015 debut in Sydney and reached the quarterfinals, but on Sunday said the wrist was again bothering him. Its been hurting the last couple of days and weeks, said del Potro. Nothing new. Nothing dangerous. But I think my wrist is not ready for play in this important tournament. The 2009 U.S. Open champ was set to play Jerzy Janowicz in the first round on Tuesday. Alex Iwobi Jersey . Clevelands manager had just watched his team lose 5-3 to Kansas City, which completed a 2-6 homestand and dropped the Indians 2 1/2 games behind Detroit in the AL Central. Tomas Rosicky Jersey . Dane Dobbie had four goals and two assists, Karsen Leung had two goals and two assists, and Matthew Dinsdale scored two and helped on another for Calgary (6-3). Shawn Evans and Jeff Shattler had eight-point games with a goal and seven assists apiece, and Jon Harnett and Geoff Snider also scored. http://www.arsenalsoccerpro.com/Authentic-Sead-Kolasinac-Arsenal-Jersey/ . The 25-year-old native of Milford, Conn., has 18 points in 41 games this season. The five-foot-eight 166-pound centre also has 28 points (10-18) in 15 games with AHL Oklahoma City. Mathieu Flamini Jersey . -- The Washington Redskins coaching staff distanced itself from other coaches Thursday by siding with ownership -- and not the players -- in the NFLs labour dispute. Aaron Ramsey Jersey . The 22-year-old Kreider was injured Friday night in New Yorks win at Columbus, but played in the next two games -- including Monday nights win over Phoenix. But the left winger, who has 17 goals and 37 points this season, was limited to about 10 minutes of ice time in each of the previous games.ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- The St. Louis Cardinals are pitching so well all they need right now to win is one run. Adam Wainwright became the NLs first nine-game winner, and the Cardinals beat Tampa Bay 1-0 on Tuesday night, the Rays third straight shutout loss. The Cardinals have three consecutive shutouts for the first time since April 2013. St. Louis, with 13 shutouts this season, was coming off 5-0 victories over Toronto on Saturday and Sunday. "Our starting pitching has been extremely good these last few, to say the least," St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said. It is the Cardinals first stretch of three consecutive road shutouts since Sept. 29, 1962-April 10, 1963 when St. Louis had four in a row. "Pretty amazing," said St. Louis slugger Matt Holliday, who homered. Tampa Bay has been shut out an AL-leading 10 times this season. The Rays, who have lost 14 of 15, have not scored a run in a club-record 28 innings. "Its kind of weird to watch because it just doesnt stay that negative for that long normally," Rays manager Joe Maddon said. "It just doesnt but it has. This is truly one of those anomaly moments where weve got to stick together as a group." Wainwright (9-3) scattered seven hits over seven innings. Trevor Rosenthal got the final four outs, including a base-loaded pop fly by Matt Joyce in the eighth, for his 17th save. Holliday put the Cardinals up 1-0 with his fourth homer this season, a long drive to left centre with two outs in the sixth off tough-luck loser Jake Odorizzi (2-7). Holliday and Kolten Wong both returned to the Cardinals lineup. Holliday was scratched Sunday due to a sore lower back, while Wong sat out three games with left shoulder soreness. Holliday said his back is still a little stiff. "Loosened up enough so I could get some good swings," he said. Odorizzi, a Cardinals fan who grew up about 30 miles from Busch Stadium, had a strong performancee in his first game against St.dddddddddddd. Louis. The right-hander gave up one run and three hits in a career-high 7 1-3 innings. "Today I felt I was really executing my pitches and nothing they could do was going to beat me," Odorizzi said. "One mistake by me and I got beat. It was the best outing Ive ever had in the big leagues." Odorizzi had allowed one baserunner, a fourth-inning walk to Holliday, before giving up consecutive two-out singles in the fifth to Jhonny Peralta and John Jay. The inning ended on a fly ball by Peter Bourjos. The Rays threatened in both the first and fourth innings. Ben Zobrist hit a fly ball with two on to end the first. Logan Forsythe lined out to second with the bases loaded and two outs in the fourth. "Its a tough lineup, it really is," Wainwright said. "Theyre going through a funk, I know. As soon as we leave town, theyre going to break out. Ive got a feeling." Sam Freeman inherited two runners and then got two key outs in the eighth before Rosenthal replaced him. NOTES: Former Cardinals manager and Tampa native Tony La Russa will throw the ceremonial first pitch before the finale of the two-game interleague series Wednesday night. La Russa will be inducted into baseballs Hall of Fame on July 27. ... Tampa Bay C Ryan Hanigan (right hamstring tightness) will be activated from the 15-day DL on Wednesday. To make room on the roster, C Ali Solis was optioned to Triple-A Durham. ... The Rays signed 2014 first-round draft pick Casey Gillaspie, a 1B out of Wichita State. ...

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Spurs coach Gregg Popovich took pains to make sure guard Tony Parker was well rested for the playoffs. "I barely played in April," Parker said. "I was joking with Pop if I was still with the Spurs." The break has paid off. Parker scored 29 points and San Antonio took a 3-0 lead in its Western Conference semifinal series against the Portland Trail Blazers with a 118-103 victory on Saturday night. Parker has scored 29 or more points in three of his last four playoff games. He had 20 points in the first half alone in Game 3 against Portland. "Hes been the engine for us," Popovich said. "He started out really well tonight. He made shots, he involved everybody else. He was playing great D at the other end. Hes really playing a whole complete game." The Spurs led by as many as 23 points in the first half, building a big early lead just as they had in the first two games of the series in San Antonio. "I think it just happened," Parker said of the third straight game with a big jump on Portland. "We just wanted to come in and have a good start, take care of the ball and play good defence like we did at home." The teams meet again on Monday night at the Moda Center. LaMarcus Aldridge had 21 points and 12 rebounds for the Portland, which pulled within eight points in the third quarter but couldnt get any closer. The Blazers were hurt by 15 turnovers and only six points from their bench. "Theyre just persistent," Aldridge said. "They play championship basketball and thats what we have to get to." No NBA team has come back from a 3-0 deficit to win a seven-game series. In 2003, the Blazers rebounded with three wins after dropping the first three against Dallas, but ultimately lost the first-round series deciding game. San Antonio, the top seed in the West, is vying for a second straight trip to the finals: Last season the Spurs fell to the Miami Heat in seven games. The winner of the series goes on to meet the winner of the conference semifinal between Oklahoma City and the Clippers. The Thunder lead that series 2-1. San Antonio has dominated this one. On Thursday night, the Spurs built a 20-point lead and won 114-97. The Spurs routed the Blazers 116-92 in the series opener after a hard-fought seven-game series against the Dallas Mavericks. The Blazers were without reserve guard Mo Williams, who has a groin injury. Williams played just 9 minutes in Game 2, and the Spurs backups outscored Portlands 50-19. Williams has consistently brought a spark and leadership off the bench the whole season, and has capably filled in while Lillard rests. Earl Watson and Will Barton helped spell starter Damian Lillard in Game 3. The Blazers took a brief 13-12 lead midway through the first quarter on Lillards step-back jumper. It was just their second lead of the series. But Parker pestered the Blazers and his finger-roll layup put the Spurs up 25-15. Marco Belinellis falling-down jumper pushed the lead to 28-17 before the first quarter was over. Parkers back-to-back 3-pointers gave the Spurs a 58-35 late first-half lead and they went into the break ahead 60-40. Portland rallied to start the second half, pulling to 64-52 after Nicolas Batums 3-pointer. He hit another 3 to narrow it to 68-60, but the Spurs kept the Blazers from coming any closer and led 83-69 going into the fourth. Parkers layup and free throw gave San Antonio a 100-81 lead in the fourth. Portland mounted a rally to get to 103-91 on Robin Lopezs layup with 5:46 left but it was too late. "Pop, you have to give him credit. He looked at the big picture, and rested me (the last month)," Parker said. "When we started the playoffs, he told me Be ready to play 37-38 minutes a game, were going to need you to play at your best. And so far its working." Portland advanced to the second round for the first time in 14 years by defeating the Houston Rockets in six games, clinching the series with Lillards amazing 3-pointer at the buzzer at home for a 99-98 victory in the deciding game. The Spurs have a 3-2 series advantage over Portland in the playoffs, sweeping the previous meeting in the 1999 conference finals. The teams split the regular-season series 2-2. NOTES: Before Game 2 in San Antonio, Blazers forward Thomas Robinson saw a snake in the locker room at the AT&T Center. Because the snake hissed, the team at first thought it was a rattlesnake, but it later turned out it was not venomous. So before Saturday nights game, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich was asked if his team had seen any critters in the Moda Center: "We expected a Beaver but we didnt see one," he laughed. ... Tim Duncan moved past Karl Malone into fifth place all-time for career playoff points. He trails only Michael Jordan, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Kobe Bryant and Shaquille ONeal. Riccardo Montolivo Jersey . A top pitching prospect, one who the ball club is pinning some of its future hopes, takes the spot of a veteran who once was viewed as a future ace but who, to this point, hasnt realized his potential and may never. Ignazio Abate Jersey . Joel Embiid was nearly unstoppable in the paint in the second half, and Naadir Tharpe seemingly couldnt miss. http://www.acmilansoccershop.com/c-18-luca-antonelli-ac-milan-fc-jersey.aspx . The Mariners ace allowed just one hit over eight innings while striking out nine, and Robinson Cano backed him with a two-run homer as Seattle earned a 3-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Sunday. Custom AC Milan Jerseys . Mired in an offensive slump, Lowry - the NBAs leader in taking charges this season - did what he has learned to do best, standing his ground and drawing a crucial offensive foul on the Cavaliers all-star point guard. Fast forward 30 seconds to the Cavs next possession, with the home team still trailing by three, Spencer Hawes - one of the leagues best passing big men - threw an interception, intended for Tyler Zeller and picked off by DeMar DeRozan. Fabio Borini Jersey . - Zac Leslie scored two goals and assisted on two more, and Justin Nichols made 34 saves as the Guelph Storm blanked the Kitchener Rangers 6-0 in Ontario Hockey League action on Sunday.BOSTON -- "The Star-Spangled Banner" played over Boylston Street in honour of an American winner of the Boston Marathon. One year after a bombing there killed three people and left more than 260 injured, Meb Keflezighi added Boston to a resume that includes the New York City Marathon title in 2009 and a silver medal in the 2004 Olympics. Running just two weeks before his 39th birthday, he had the names of the 2013 bombing victims on his bib. "At the end, I just kept thinking, Boston Strong. Boston Strong," he said. "I was thinking Give everything you have. If you get beat, thats it." Keflezighi completed the 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to the finish on Boylston Street in Bostons Back Bay on Monday in a personal-best 2 hours, 8 minutes, 37 seconds. He held off Kenyas Wilson Chebet, who finished 11 seconds behind. Edmontons Tom McGrath was the top Canadian, finishing 101st in 2:30:24. Keflezighi went out early and built a big lead. But he was looking over his shoulder several times as Chebet closed the gap over the final two miles. After realizing he wouldnt be caught, Keflezighi raised his sunglasses, began pumping his right fist and made the sign of the cross. He broke into tears after crossing the finish line, then draped himself in the American flag. No U.S. runner had won the race since Lisa Larsen-Weidenbach took the womens title in 1985. The last American man to win was Greg Meyer in 1983. Meyer and Keflezighi embraced after the race. "Im blessed to be an American and God bless America and God bless Boston for this special day," Keflezighi said. Rita Jeptoo of Kenya successfully defended the womens title she said she could not enjoy a year ago. Jeptoo finished in a course-record 2 hours, 18 minutes, 57 seconds. She is a three-time Boston Marathon champion, having also won in 2006. "I came here to support the people in Boston and show them that we are here together," she said. "I decided to support them and show them we are here together." Jeptoo broke away from a group of five runners at the 23-mile mark. Buzunesh Deba of Ethiopia finished second in 2:19:59. Countrywoman Mare Dibaba waas third at 2:19:52.dddddddddddd All three women came in under the previous course record. Lanni Marchant of London, Ont., was the top Canadian in 14th. American Shalane Flanagan, who went to high school in nearby Marblehead, finished seventh after leading for more than half the race. She gambled by setting the early pace, but fell back on the Newton Hills about 21 miles into the race. "It does mean a lot to be that my city was proud of me," she said. "Im proud of how I ran. I dont wish I was it was easier. I wish I was better." After breaking a 27-year American drought at the New York marathon, Keflezighi contemplated retiring after the 2012 NYC Marathon. But that race was cancelled because of Superstorm Sandy, and he pulled out of the Boston Marathon last April because of injury. He watched the race from the stands at the finish line, but said he left about five minutes before the bombs went off. He was the first American to medal in an Olympic marathon since Frank Shorter won gold in 1972 and silver in 1976. His 2009 New York victory broke a 27-year American drought there. Another American, Tatyana McFadden, celebrated her 25th birthday Monday by winning the womens wheelchair race for the second straight year. She was timed in in 1 hour, 35 minutes, 6 seconds. McFadden was born in Russia and lived in an orphanage as a child before starring at the University of Illinois. She also won the 2013 NYC Marathon womens wheelchair race after taking the titles in Boston, London and Chicago last year. Ernst van Dyk of South Africa won the mens wheelchair division for a record 10th time. The 41-year-old crossed in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 36 seconds. Van Dyk holds the record for most all-categories Boston Marathon wins. This was his first win at this race since 2010. Last years mens champion, Lelisa Desisa, did not finish this years race, and had to be picked up by a van about 21 miles into the event. Marathon officials said 35,755 runners registered for the race, with 32,408 unofficial starters. The field included just less than 5,000 runners who were not able to finish last year and accepted invitations to return this year.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Vince Wilfork was pursuing a play when he planted his right foot, dropped to the ground and probably ended his season. "It doesnt look too good for Vince," New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Monday on WEEI radio. "I think hes got a pretty serious injury and its probably unlikely that hell be able to play again this year." The Boston Globe reported that the star defensive tackle tore his right Achilles tendon in Sundays 30-23 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Belichick did not specify the injury. Wilforks agent, Kennard McGuire, did not respond to requests for comment. At his news conference earlier Monday, Belichick said he didnt know much about Wilforks injury or whether he would miss most or all of the remaining games. He said he hadnt met yet with medical personnel. But as the injuries to key Patriots players pile up -- Wilfork is a five-time Pro Bowl selection -- so do the victories. Theyre 4-0 despite missing one of the NFLs best tight ends, Rob Gronkowski, for all those games, as he recovers from forearm and back surgery, and their top wide receiver, Danny Amendola, for the last three with a groin injury. "We always talk about next man up. We have a lot of talented guys on our team," linebacker Jerod Mayo said. "Guys really stepped up and played well for us. We ended up getting the victory." When Wilfork left, undrafted rookie Joe Vellano stepped in and got a sack. And Chris Jones, cut by Houston and Tampa Bay after the Texans drafted him in the sixth round this year, saw his first action with the Patriots. So theyre thin at defensive tackle behind the other starter, Tommy Kelly. "He has good instincts, kind of has a nose for the ball and a good feel for whats going on," Belichick said of Vellano. "Hes still got a long way to go but definitely making progress." Jones, he said, is "just overall getting familiar with what we do, our calls, his assignments, block reactions. All those kind of things have gotten better over the last couple weeks." But no one plays quite like Wilfork, a defensive captain Belichick calls "a great leader." His 325-pound frame demands double teams, opening up space for teammates to make tackles. And hes been very healthy, until now. Sundays game was the 166th of his career, including the post-season. Hes played in 160 and started 148. "Obviously, Vince has been a staple for a long time," said Mayo, another defensive captain. "He rarely goes out with injuries so it was very shocking and surprising to see my friend go down like that." Wilfork was hurt on the 10th play of the Falcons opening series. He was blocked lightly by left guard Justin Blalock, who then ran to his left to block on a pass to Julio Jones. Wilfork changed direction to run toward the action when his right leg gave way. The Patriots said he had an ankle injury, and he didnt return. On the sideline, Tom Brady talked with Wilfork, then patted him on the shoulder. A short time later, Wilfork was sitting on the back of a cart, his right leg bare below the knee, with Dr. Thomas Gill, the team physician, by his side as they headed off the field. Wilforks absence lightens the load for opposing offensive linemen. "Hes not only strong and powerful, but he is also quick for a man his size, and hes a smart player," Patriots left guard Logan Mankins said. "He takes on double teams so well. He just engulfs linemen. In pass protection, he just pushes the pocket. He is always collapsing inside, and that helps the edge rush. So, he just does so many things for us, and does it so good." Now Belichick must get along without that massive force in the middle. "Clearly, there are no Vince Wilforks just standing around out there on the corner waiting to sign with the Patriots or some other NFL team," he said on WEEI. "He is a special player, one of the very best at his position." Kyle Rudolph Jersey . LOUIS -- Russell Martin wanted a better fate for his starting pitcher and helped deliver a happier ending. Marcus Sherels Jersey . Vettel only needs to finish fifth or better Sunday to wrap up the championship with three races remaining, and bettered his own lap record to claim his third straight pole at Buddh International Circuit. http://www.thevikingsshoponline.com/Youth-Brett-Favre-Vikings-Jersey/ . Louis, MO (SportsNetwork. Fran Tarkenton Jersey . -- C.J. Wilson parked his car and laughed while signing autographs for faceless fans who handed bats, balls and cards to the pitcher from the other side of a brick wall. Adrian Peterson Jersey . "Uuufff," was all shortstop Adeiny Hechavarria could come up with after Stantons latest mammoth shot.Nico Rosberg took his first pole position of the season in China, where Lewis Hamilton hit unreliability problems and will start from last. The world champion failed to set a time during Q1 as Mercedes battled ERS problems on his hybrid power unit that left him down on power.Hamilton was already set to take a five-place grid penalty for changing his gearbox, but now has a mammoth task on Sunday starting from 22nd. You can overtake here, the tyres wont last as well. Ill give it everything Ive got, Hamilton told Sky Sports F1.The one silver lining for the Mercedes driver is he has plenty of new tyres available for the race. Lewis Hamilton will start the Chinese GP at the back of the grid after mechanical problems hampered his qualifying Starting from pole, Rosberg will have the advantage of starting on soft compound tyres after gambling on making it into Q3 on the slower tyres during Q2.The pressure was on at the beginning of Q3 when Kimi did a good time, Rosberg told Sky Sports F1.It is good that I am starting on the softs, Im not sure what is planned after that, but I think the plan is not to use the supersofts. After team-mate Lewis Hamilton failed to make it out of Q1, Mercedes Nico Rosberg secured pole He will be joined on the front row by Red Bulls Daniel Ricciardo, whose smile was even wider than normal after a shock result.Where on earth that came from? Im quite shocked actually, to qualify on the front row is an incredible performance, Red Bull boss Christian Horner told Sky Sports F1. Ferrari, who had looked the team to beat throughout practice, had to settle for the second row of the grid. Kimi Raikkonen will start third and Sebastian Vettel fourth after an action-packed session which more than justified the return to the 2015 qualifying format.We saved a set of tyres, I was confident that I could make it on the last lap, but I didnt, Vettel told Sky F1.I wasnt happy with the lap, I made a couple of small mistakes here and there that cost me quite a lot of time. Valtteri Bottas was fifth for Williams, ahead of Daniil Kvyat, Sergio Perez and the Toro Rosso pair of Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen.Nico Hulkenberg did make it into Q3, but his front left wheel came loose and bounced down the track late in Q2, forcing him to stop the car, ruling him out of the top-10 shootout. He was handed a three-place grid penalty for an unsafe release. Nico Hulkenbergs Chinese qualifying comes to an abrupt end after the front left tyre of his Force India comes off and hits the safety barriers.dddddddddddd That incident caused a late red flag in Q2 and with only just over a minute left on the clock meant those in the drop zone were unable to post another time.Arrgh, arrgh, exclaimed a frustrated Fernando Alonso over the radio when told he wouldnt get one final attempt at a spot in Q3.The Spaniard qualified 12th, one spot above team-mate Jenson Button after McLaren sent both their drivers out on used tyres for their initial runs, before being forced to abort their laps on new supersofts. They will both move up one spot thanks to Hulkenbergs penalty.Both McLarens had the potential to be in Q3, we didnt use the new tyres, the full engine power, we were waiting on that final lap and we never started it, Alonso later told Sky Sports F1. Pascal Wehrlein hits a bump near the start-finish line and ends up in the wall causing a red flag during qualifying Q1 was delayed by over 20 minutes when Pascal Wehrlein hit the wall on the pit straight after losing control of his Manor.The German opened his DRS just before hitting a wet patch of track below the media centre bridge. That lack of rear grip combined with a bump on the track sent his Manor spearing into the wall.The marshals then attempted to dry the track using sweepers, but had little impact on the conditions.Embarrassingly for Renault, who have senior management present in Shanghai, both cars went out in the first part of qualifying, along with the Haas of Esteban Gutierrez and the Manor of Rio Haryanto.

DETROIT -- Henrik Zetterberg wants to play in the playoffs. "Thats the goal," Zetterberg said Wednesday, speaking to reporters for the first time since he had back surgery Feb 21. The Detroit Red Wings hope to give their captain what he wants, but theyve got work to do. Detroit would be in its 23rd straight post-season if the regular season ended Wednesday, but it is in a logjam for one of two spots in the Eastern Conference wild-card race. The Red Wings, who have 10 games left in the regular season, will play Montreal on Thursday night at home. Zetterberg is aiming to return after the playoffs begin April 16. "I think the timeline is eight weeks without contact," he said. "Thats what the doctors say and thats what were going to stick with, and then well re-evaluate after that." Zetterberg said he felt great when he went to Winter Olympics. After Zetterberg played his one and only game as Swedens captain, he woke up in pain because a lingering back problem became debilitating. He had surgery about a week later in New York. "This had to be done," he said. "We went in, took away two pieces from my disc that were pushing on the nerve. Once this is healed and properly rehabbed, I shouldnt have an issue again." Despite not playing for Detroit since Feb. 8, Zetterberg still leads the team with 48 points. The Red Wings have been resting Pavel Datsyuk since Feb. 27, hoping it will help his left knee heal enough to help the team late in the regular season and the playoffs if they earn a spot. Datsyuk has been skating this week, but it is not known how longer he will be out. Detroits front line has been bolstered recently by the return of Darren Helm and Joakim Andersson. Tomas Jurco, who has been out for two weeks with injured ribs, is expected to play Thursday against the Canadiens. "The big thing is you get them back, but theyre good for one game and then it takes them about three games to get their conditioning up to speed," Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said. Zetterberg led the team with 16 goals for a while, but Gustav Nyquist has surged into the lead with 25, including two in each of the previous two games and nine during a six-game streak. From Jan. 20 through Tuesdays games, he scored an NHL-high 20 goals -- five more than the leagues second-leading scorer during that stretch. "Hes the hottest player in the league right now and we hope its going to continue," Zetterberg said. Nyquist, who scored four times in 40 NHL games entering the season, has made the most out of his opportunities to play a lot for a banged-up team that has been missing a slew of forwards. Detroits fourth-round pick in 2008 previously scored a lot for the AHLs Grand Rapids Griffins, at the University of Maine and in the Swedish Junior League. "Hes on a roll and feeling good about himself," Babcock said. "You never know until these players play whether they can do it in this league. Hes been a dominant scorer in every league hes ever played in." John Henson Jersey .Connor Graham, Alex Lintuniemi and Sam Studnicka also scored for Ottawa (11-8-2). Liam Herbst made 21 saves for the win.Brendan Lemieux had both of Barries (10-10-2) goals. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Jersey .com) - Pavel Datsyuk and Gustav Nyquist both scored in the shootout as the Detroit Red Wings denied the Minnesota Wilds comeback bid with a 5-4 win on Tuesday. http://www.nbabucksproshop.com/ . Even if he is shooting 38 per cent from the field overall this season, the Utah Jazz rookie always feels like his final shot is going in. Ray Allen Jersey . The redshirt freshman finished the regular season with nearly 3,500 passing yards, and 35 touchdowns with another three on the ground while leading the Seminoles to the top of the BCS Rankings. Greg Monroe Jersey . The 19-year-old from Westmount, Que., was edged 7-5, 6-7 (5), 6-3 by third-seeded Alize Cornet of France. Cornet broke Bouchard twice in the last set and saved six break points in the three-hour match.TAMPA, Fla. -- Sami Salo joked that as the shootout went on and on, one thing went through his mind: "Youve got to tie up your skates. I might get a chance." The 15-year NHL defenceman made the most of a rare shootout opportunity, scoring in the 13th round to lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to a 3-2 win over the New York Islanders on Thursday night. "It just happened to go in," said Salo of his first successful shootout goal, coming in his third ever attempt. "It was obviously good for us. Its a good feeling." The shootout was tied at 4 through 12 rounds before Salo put a backhander past Evgeni Nabokov. Ben Bishop preserved the win by making a glove save on Johan Sundstrom. Ryan Callahan had two goals for the Lightning, who trail Montreal by two points for second place in the Atlantic Division. Tampa Bay, 6-0-4 in its last 10 games, has two games in hand on the Canadiens. "First and foremost, we got two points," Tampa Bay coach Jon Cooper said. "So, thats what we need out of the game. Were going to have to do better than that. Give the Islanders some credit, they played really hard. Definitely, there were positives in the game, but as a whole, were a better 5-on-5 team than we showed tonight." The Islanders, out of the playoff race, got goals from Ryan Strome and Matt Donovan. Right wing Kyle Okposo, who has a team-best 27 goals and 69 points, was a late scratch due to a lower body injury. "We are trying to play hard at this point of the season, andd were trying to get better each and every day," Islanders defenceman Travis Hamonic said.dddddddddddd "I thought we played a pretty good game." All three games between the teams this season were decided in a shootout, with the road team winning the first two. "I dont mind them when were winning," Callahan said. "When you lose them, you hate them." Callahan pulled the Lightning even at 2 on his second goal of the game, coming on a rebound 5:50 into the third. "We didnt have our best game, but really willed a way to win," Bishop said. Donovan put the Islanders up 2-1 while lunging forward in the slot at 9:17 of the second. It ended the defencemans 39-game goal drought. After Callahan redirected Radko Gudas shot past Nabokov just 29 seconds into the second, Strome put a shot past Bishop to tie it at 1 at 1:33. New York had a short-handed goal by Hamonic from centre ice waved off due to an offside call in the second. Hamonic stole Bishops errant long-range pass from the corner and put the puck into the vacated net. The Islanders failed to score during a 5-on-3 power play early in the third. Tampa Bay came up empty on a power play that covered the final 69 seconds of overtime. NOTES: Tampa Bay C Valtteri Filppula had an assist to extend his point streak (10 assists, 14 points) to 10 games. ... The Islanders recalled forward John Persson on an emergency basis from Bridgeport of the AHL. Persson, selected in the fifth round of the 2011 draft, made his NHL debut.

Dylan Hartley says England want to prove they are Europes dominant force when they take on France on Saturday. Victory in Paris will earn England their first Grand Slam since 2003, in what is coach Eddie Jones first Six Nations championship.Hartleys men sealed the title on Sunday, Scotlands victory over the French at Murrayfield confirming England as champions after they had defeated Wales the previous day. But the skipper maintains his players are determined to celebrate victory on the pitch, rather than the team hotel, come Sunday night.The championship came our way, we had a beer and drew a line under it, said the Northampton hooker. It was a pretty average way to win it if Im honest. Thats why the lads say we go again, we go and win in France and enjoy it. Hartley missed out on the Grand Slam in 2011 and 2013 The biggest challenge for the guys is mentally turning up. We can say all the right things, but unless we are training hard and preparing correctly, its just words. The way training has gone this week, the intensity has gone up a level. That comes from the top. Eddie has been cracking the whip.Sports psychologist Jeremy Snape - a former Leicestershire cricketer - has been working with the squad this week but Hartley said there is no lack of determination or motivation.Jeremy has been in the background - hes a sounding board for players, he said. But the squad is that motivated, we dont need him to tell us how to win this weekend.Loosehead prop Mako Vunipola will scrum down with Hartley, with Joe Marler dropped to the bench, and Hartley says the Saracens forward can be a big player for the team at the Stade de France. Eddie Jones (L) and Hartley plot ahead of Saturdays big game Its obvious for everyone to see, the way he carries the ball, the way he tackles, competes at the breakdown, he said. Over the last few seasons hes really added to his set-piece game. I know scrummaging with him how strong he is. It will be a big test for him out in France but one he can step up in.Hartley missed out on Grand Slams in 2011 and 2013 at the hands of Ireland and Wales, but insists memories of those games are irrelevant this week.We havent really talked about it. There are individuals in our team who have experienced loss, failure. But these setbacks are what motivate people to not let that happen again, he said.One more game to be the most dominant side in Europe.

Simpson birdied two of the first three holes Sunday, pulling away for a six-stroke win in the second event of the season. "One over through three yesterday and 2 under today felt like a huge difference," Simpson said. "And it was because it really let me slow down and pace myself, and you know, try to let the guys come after me." Winning for the first time since the 2012 U.S. Open, Simpson closed with a 5-under 66 in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He finished at 24-under 260 after opening with rounds of 64, 63 and 67 to take a four-stroke lead into the final round. "As we were going kind of middle of the round, pins were tough, greens were drying out and I knew it would take a really special round for somebody to shoot 7, 8 under," Simpson said. "So, I felt like I was in control, and I asked my caddie, once I hit it on the green on 17 where we stood. And I was just thankful that I was able to kind of manage my golf ball the last couple rounds." Simpson earned $1.08 million for his fourth PGA Tour title. In addition to the U.S. Open last year at The Olympic Club, he won the Wyndham Championship and Deutsche Bank Championship in 2011. Ryo Ishikawa and Jason Bohn tied for second. Ishikawa, the Japanese player who had to play the Web.com Tour Finals to regain his PGA Tour card, shot aa 65.dddddddddddd "I wish I could made a couple putts, like three putts," Ishikawa said. "I missed a lot of putts this week, like 10 feet, 15 feet, 20 feet. I missed a lot. But still, Im pretty happy with that result." Bohn had a 66. Charley Hoffman was fourth at 17 under after a 64. "When you get that far up the leaderboard every putt you make is worth big dollars and big FedEx Cup points," Hoffman said. "So, to get the year started off on the right foot, you always want to make those putts." Chesson Hadley, second entering the final round, had a 70 to drop into a tie for fifth at 16 under with Luke Guthrie, Troy Matteson and Charles Howell III. "I was certainly nervous out there today, but I was able just to kind of hang in there," Hadley said. Guthrie and Matteson shot 64, and Howell had a 65. Matteson had seven straight birdies -- on Nos. 9-15 -- to fall one short of the tournament record set by Jerry Kelly in 2003. "It was a really good ball-striking round," Matteson said. "As a matter of fact, when I got to 16, I thought I was going to get that eighth one and I ended up hitting the pin and almost going into the lake, so I would have had a tap-in there. But you know what, all in all its a great end to my week. I didnt quite figure it out in the middle (of the tournament), but I certainly put it together today."

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Corey Perry got to 40 goals and helped the Anaheim Ducks reach 50 wins. Perry scored twice in Anaheims three-goal third period, and Francois Beauchemin added the winning tally with 1:21 left as the Ducks rallied to beat the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 on Wednesday night. Beauchemin fired a slap shot past goalie Viktor Fasth, with assists from Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, as the Ducks improved to (50-18-8). "Their team was taking away the far side, so I just tried to shoot it as hard as I could," said Beauchemin, who scored his 10th career winning goal. "I knew (Perry) was going for a rebound if it was there. Fortunately, it went in. I was pretty happy with that one." With the Ducks trailing 2-0, Perry scored his 40th goal just 37 seconds after Jordan Eberle doubled Edmontons lead at 2:51. Perry then tied it at 11:25 with No. 41. It is the second time Perry has reached 40 goals in a season. "Weve been a team thats worked had all year," Perry said. "We have that never-say-die attitude. If we continue to push and play the right way for a full 60 minutes, well be all right." Rookie goalie Frederik Anderson (19-5) stopped 30 shots for the Ducks, 5-0-1 in their last six games. "Thats twice hes come up with a big save," Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau said. "He made a big save when it was 2-0 right after their goal. Then we score right away. What a swing. "Theres no way we wouldve come back from 3-0, but Freddie stood tall and made a great save." Philip Larsen scored his third of the season in the first period for Edmonton. Anaheim improved to 27-7-4 at home. Edmonton dropped to 12-22-6 on the road. "The idea of winning 50 games is pretty cool, quite frankly," Boudreau said. "Theres only going to be a few teams that do it, and when youre one of them, its quite an accomplishment. Im pretty proud of the guys for 50 wins." Fasth, who faced his former team for the first time since being dealt for two draft picks a month ago, made 23 saves but dropped to 2-2-1 for the Oilers. In two seasons with Anaheim, Fasth was 17-8-3 with four shutouts and a 2.32 goals-against average. "There were a lot of emotions," Fasth said. "I had been playing with the guys on the other side for over a year. It was a special feeling. Thats a tough loss." The Pacific Division-leading Ducks are three points ahead of second-place San Jose with a game in hand. Anaheim trails Western-Conference leading St. Louis by one point. Edmonton, last in the Pacific Division, will finish a three-game road trip at Phoenix on Friday. The Oilers, who have scored on just 16.4 per cent of their power plays this season, took advantage of one to grab a 1-0 lead over the Ducks. Larsen drilled the puck into the upper right corner of the net on the glove side with 3:56 left in the second period. Edmonton outshot the Ducks 24-15 over the first two periods and took a 1-0 lead into the third. The Oilers doubled their lead on Eberles 26th goal of the season. "Its heartbreaking," Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins said. "Its games like these that you want your players to feel the reward of the points. When we had it 2-0, we had an unbelievable chance in front of the net and a rebound that, if it would have went to three, it would have been over for sure. But then again, with the Ducks, you never know. "They seem to be very, very good at never being out of a game. We have to find a way to close it out." NOTES: Anaheim leads the NHL with 3.23 goals per game. ... The Ducks four-goal comeback win over Winnipeg on Monday was the largest in an NHL victory since Jan. 9, 2010, when Minnesota beat Chicago 6-5 in a shootout, after trailing 5-1. ...

Later, his catcher delivered the deciding stroke. Price struck out 10 in his Detroit debut and was long gone when Alex Avila homered in the 12th inning to lift the Tigers over the New York Yankees 4-3 Tuesday night. "Happy its over and happy we won," Price said. "Finally feel part of the team." Price pitched 8 2-3 innings and left with the score 3-all. The AL Central leaders got Price from Tampa Bay last Thursday in a three-team deal minutes before the trading deadline. The lefty ace got to keep his No. 14 -- centre fielder Austin Jackson, who wore it with the Tigers, was sent to Seattle in the big swap. Price leads the majors in strikeouts (199) and innings (179 1-3). "He really looked exactly like he did in Tampa, except he had the Tiger uniform," manager Brad Ausmus said. Bushy bearded Joba Chamberlain relieved Price, and the crowd booed the formerly clean-shaven Yankees reliever. "I was a little worried about him being amped up, being in New York," Ausmus said. Chamberlain got four outs without permitting a hit. "I didnt know what to expect," he said. "I definitely had to take a couple of deep breaths." The Yankees are in the midst of facing Detroits three Cy Young Award winners. They edged Max Scherzer on Monday, and will next see Justin Verlander on Wednesday night. Avila homered with one out off Matt Daley (0-1). Joakim Soria (2-4) got the win. Joe Nathan earned his 23rd save in 28 tries, retiring Chase Headley on a leadoff drive that was caught at the right-field wall. "Two strikes, you know, youre not taking a full-blown normal swing. But, yeah, I felt I got enough of it that it had a chance. Unfortunately, it came up just short," Headley said. This was the Yankees 16th straight game decided by two or fewer runs, and theyre 9-7 in that span. Its the longest such streak in the majors since a 16-game stretch by Baltimore in 1975, the team said in citing the Elias Sports Bureau. Tigers outfielder Torii Hunter exited wiith a bruised left hand after being hit by a pitch from Dellin Betances in the ninth.dddddddddddd Hunter was listed as day-to-day. "You always think the worst," he said, his hand bandaged. "I thought it was broke." Brian McCann and Martin Prado hit solo home runs for the Yankees, who had won three in a row. The Tigers tied it at 3 in the seventh, helped by some smart swinging by Victor Martinez. The cleanup man led off by hitting an easy grounder to the uncovered left side of the Yankees overshifted infield for a single and scored on a two-out single by Avila. Andrew Romine homered in the Detroit sixth. TRAINERS ROOM Tigers: Shortstop Eugenio Suarez didnt play, a day after spraining his left knee while sliding into second base on a steal. Ausmus said theres a chance Suarez could play Wednesday. Yankees: First baseman Mark Teixeira went 0 for 5. He was a late scratch Monday when felt lightheaded. ... Left-hander CC Sabathia says doctors took out a bone chip they found in his knee when they did season-ending surgery last week. Hell soon get a stem-cell injection. He expects to ready for spring training. ON DECK Verlander (10-9, 4.66 ERA) starts against Chris Capuano (1-2, 4.50 ERA). Verlander is 0-2 in five regular-season starts at the new Yankee Stadium. No telling if his special fan will be in the stands -- Verlander flipped a ball to supermodel Kate Upton on Monday night, but she wasnt sitting in her seat behind the Tigers dugout Tuesday. JOBA THE BEARD Yankees manager Joe Girardi got a good look at Chamberlain, saying, "his beard is quite large." Girardi said he asked if Chamberlain ever found anything hidden in the bushy growth and the pitcher told him: "Sometimes, guys try to sneak seeds in there." SPIKED With a runner on second and one out in the seventh, Brendan Ryan hit a soft liner that Kinsler caught. Kinsler pivoted and tried to throw to second for a double play, but slipped and tossed the ball straight into the ground. Fortunately for the Tigers, it went right to first baseman Miguel Cabrera.

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A former intern for the Los Angeles Clippers is accusing the team and its owners, the Sterling Family Trust, of violating labour laws by not paying its interns. In a federal class action lawsuit filed Tuesday, former intern Frank Cooper says he was never paid although he worked 40 to 50 hours per week. For two months in 2012, Cooper worked in the NBA teams fan relations department, where he made calls to season-ticket holders and helped organize basketball clinics. The lawsuit seeks back pay, damages, and attorneys fees for Cooper and other Clippers interns, according to his lawyer, Maurice Pianko.

MacArthur opened the scoring 5:12 into the first period, scoring a one-time wrist shot from the slot on the power play after some precise passing with teammates Mark Stone and Kyle Turris. Lazar doubled Ottawas lead on another power play with a quick wrap-around goal, catching Islanders goalie Jaroslav Halak chasing the puck behind his net at the 12:54 mark of the first period. Despite some early pressure, Senators goalie Craig Anderson was sharp, turning away all ten shots from the Islanders in the first period, including a breakaway save against Mikhail Grabovski 7:39 into the game.

Go to TSN Radios World Cup schedule for broadcast details on both matchups. Ecuador aiming for victory against France (TSN 1050, TSN 690, TSN 1260 and TEAM 1410) Ecuadors hopes of advancing to the knockout round will come down to 90 minutes at the Maracana on Wednesday when the nation faces France. La Tri has taken three points from its first two games in Group E, opening the tournament with a heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to Switzerland before coming from behind to get a win over Honduras by the same score. Next up for the South American nation is France, which sits atop the group thanks to its comfortable 3-0 and 5-2 wins over Honduras and Switzerland, respectively. And with Switzerland simultaneously squaring off with a Honduran side that has nothing to play for on Wednesday, Ecuador is anticipating that it will need to defeat Les Bleus in order to advance to the knockout round for just the second time in history. Given Frances strong offensive displays thus far, Ecuador could be poised to absorb the attack and hit the European side on the counter. "(France) scored eight goals in one match (an 8-0 thumping of Jamaica in a warm-up match)," Ecuador midfielder Christian Noboa said. "Scoring a goal in a World Cup is difficult and scoring eight, that gives you a guide to what France are all about." The one saving grace that could make things easier for Ecuador is the fact that France already has secured a spot in the knockout round. That affords France coach Didier Deschamps the luxury of potentially deploying a weaker team with the intent of resting some key players. But according to star striker Karim Benzema, who has netted three goals in the tournament, France will go for it against Ecuador. "Were very pleased with the performance and well try to repeat it against Ecuador," the 26-year-old said after the convincing defeat of Switzerland. While France holds a major edge over its Group E opposition when it comes to goal difference, Les Bleus will have plenty of incentive to get at least a draw on Wednesday as the winner of Group E would likely avoid playing Argentina in the round of 16. "Weve got a good goal difference, and the third match will decide who finishes top and second in the group," Deschamps said. "We prepared well for the first two games, and weve played in an efficient manner. This is still the first part of the tournament. We need to finish the job against Ecuador, and then well be in a very different kind of competition." Henry Ellenson Jersey .

Langston Galloway Jersey . After a tight first half, the Croatians took command in Reykjavik after Skulason was dismissed for a professional foul in the 51st minute, but couldnt find a way past Iceland goalkeeper Hannes Halldorsson and his packed defence. Eduardo had a weak shot cleared away from near the goalline after barely a minute for Croatia, whose substitute Ivica Olic forced a fine reaction save from Halldorsson in the 55th.SAN DIEGO -- On the field and off of it, anyone who watched the San Diego Padres outlast the Chicago Cubs on Sunday had a similar reaction. The words might have been slightly different but the bottom line was the same. "That was the strangest game Ive seen in my life," said longtime Padres radio announcer Jerry Coleman. San Diego finally held off the Cubs for a 3-2 win in 15 innings, a game that was scoreless until Chicago scored twice in the 13th inning, only to be matched by the Padres in the bottom half. Coleman, a New York Yankees infielder from 1949-57, has spent many of his 88 years in baseball. Even he was scratching his head after Nick Hundleys game-winning RBI single ended this marathon. The Cubs grabbed a 2-0 lead in the 13th thanks in part to Padres first baseman Jesus Guzman hitting Nick Schierholtzs helmet with a throw after Schierholtz left the batters box on what looked to be a potential bases-loaded, double play. "Ive never seen that one before," Cubs manager Dale Sveum said. Schierholtz said he got out of the box in an awkward manner because he tweaked his back on the swing. They he got plunked by Guzman. "Just a nightmare of a play," said Schierholtz, who said his back and head are probably fine. The Padres tied it when Ronny Cedeno made a daring dash to the plate on Kevin Greggs wild pitch after Cedeno had tripled with two outs. "I dont think Ronny saw (the ball) immediately," Padres manager Bud Black said. "Where he is, where the ball is and where the catcher is, its not a great view. You dont know how far the ball is going to come toward our dugout. "He picked it up and made a decision to go. But if there was a good throw and tag, he probably would have been out." Instead, Hundley recorded the third game-winning hit of his career and his first since he belted a home run on May 30, 2010, against Washington. "Any time you go long like that it adds a little more, its a special win," Hundley said. "Losing a game like this takes a little bit more out of you, and winning it builds momentum." Black said the victory was big, even if both teams are struggling. The Padres (59-71) are fourth in the NL West, while the last-place Cubs (55-75) havee dropped 11 of 14.dddddddddddd "It was a fantastic win when it looked as dismal as it can look," Black said. Logan Forsythe set up the winning hit with a one-out single against Hector Rondon (2-1). He moved up on a groundout before Alexi Amarista was intentionally walked. Hundley then lined a clean single into centre field, scoring Forsythe easily and giving San Diego its third win in four games. Dale Thayer (2-3) wiggled out of a jam in the top half to get the victory. The game lasted 5 hours, 13 minutes, and the teams used 15 pitchers. But it wasnt even the longest game of the weekend as Arizona beat Philadelphia 12-7 in 18 innings on Saturday night. San Diego looked poised to end the game in the 14th when it put runners on second and third with one out. But Eric Stults, batting for fellow pitcher Brad Boxberger, struck out swinging while facing a five-man infield. Chase Headley looked at a third strike to end the inning. Chicago then wasted an opportunity to go in front. The Cubs loaded the bases with one out in the 15th, but Lake grounded into a fielders choice that cut down Starlin Castro at home, and Murphy grounded out. Cubs starter Chris Rusin allowed three hits and walked four in 6 1-3 innings, lowering his ERA to 2.64. The left-hander is 0-2 in his last three starts despite a 2.00 ERA. San Diego right-hander Andrew Cashner pitched seven innings of two-hit ball against his former team. He struck out seven and walked one. "Cash threw the ball well," Black said. "It was a great game for Cash to continue to grow as a pitcher." NOTES: Cubs C Welington Castillo was back in the lineup after missing three games with bruised ribs. ... Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo will remain in the No. 2 spot in the order. Rizzo, according to Sveum, has sparked the offence the last four games. "Weve scored six, four, six and three," Sveum said before Sundays game. "Im not changing anything." ... The Padres will start Tyson Ross on Monday when they open a two-city, six-game road trip in Arizona. ... The Padres arent sure on their starting pitcher for Wednesday. With veteran RHP Edinson Volquez designated for assignment, the Padres are juggling their rotation and considering various options.

PARIS - Zlatan Ibrahimovic took his tally to 37 goals in another remarkable season on Sunday, scoring a hat trick as defending champion Paris Saint-Germain won 4-2 at Toulouse to maintain its five-point lead over Monaco. Ibrahimovic, who also helped set up the other goal for Argentina winger Ezequiel Lavezzi, has scored 22 league goals and is closing in on his career-best total of 30 from last season. At this pace, he is on course to get 50 goals in all competitions. "It was a good game. It wasnt easy to play on this pitch because it wasnt in a good state," said Ibrahimovic, who scored twice in the 4-0 rout of Bayer Leverkusen in the Champions League on Tuesday. "I feel good, very good physically. I dont know how far we can go but I hope the team keeps on playing like this, and well see what we can win." PSG is finding its best form again at just the right time and next faces bitter rival Marseille at home next weekend. "Weve scored a lot of goals in one week. It shows our attacking talent and its going to be very hard to catch us," PSG midfielder Blaise Matuidi said. "Now we can recover properly before the Marseille game." Toulouse coach Alain Casanova promised to attack and was true to his word, with lively striker Wissam Ben Yedder scoring twice to set up a nervous finish before Ibrahimovic converted his second penalty of the match in the last minute. "We didnt play particularly well, because the players were a bit tired (after Tuesday night)," PSG coach Laurent Blanc said. "We didnt create an enormous amount of chances but we took them, and when you score four goals the coach can only be happy." Meanwhile, Lille fell further behind the top two after a dour 0-0 draw with Lille. Third-place Lille is 10 points behind Monaco and one point ahead of fourth-place Saint-Etienne, while Lyon is five points behind Lille in sixth place. PSG took the lead in the 33rd minute when Serbian defender Uros Spajic brought down Lavezzi, and Ibrahimovic drilled his spot kick down the middle with goalkeeper Zacharie Boucher guessing wrong as he dived to his right. PSG should have scored again in the 43rd when Ibrahimovic crossed from the left and centre back Thiago Silva failed to hit the target as he lunged in at the far post. A minute later, Toulouse punished PSG for that miss when Ben Yedder volleyed in a cross from midfielder Etienne Didot. But PSG regained the lead in the 56th when Ibrahimovic again crossed from the left, Matuidi let the ball run and Lavezzi finished with a first-time shot. Ibrahimovic seemed to have put the result beyond doubt in the 70th, heading in substitute Yohan Cabayes free kick after the impressive Lavezzi had been fouled, but sloppy play let Toulouse back into the game three minutes later. After PSG midfielder Thiago Motta went to challenge forward Martin Braithwate, the ball bounced into the penalty area and Ben Yedder beat goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu with a calm finish. Not to be outdone, Ibrahimovic went close with another header from Cabayes free kick which Boucher kept out and then scored another penalty after Issiaga Sylla had handled his free kick. Ibrahimovic was lucky, however, as he tried to dink it over Boucher. The goalkeeper saved the shot, only for the rebound to fall kindly into the Sweden forwards path. Hardly anything happened at Lille until the hour mark, when Lyon goalkeeper Anthony Lopes thwarted 18-year-old forward Divock Origi and then tipped away Salomon Kalous cross before it reached striker Nolan Roux. The game finally started to open up and, when Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier clipped the ball over onrushing goalie Vincent Enyeama, defender Pape Souare had to make a goal line clearance. Lopes then made an excellent finger-tip save to push Origis strike from 20 yards onto the bar, and Lyon forward Alexandre Lacazette shot straight at Enyeama from a good position. Earlier, struggling Rennes moved nine points away from the relegation zone with an impressive 3-0 win at Nantes, with Sweden forward Ola Toivonen, strike partner Paul-Georges Ntep and Norwegian midfielder Anders Konradsen getting the goals. Sam Dekker Jersey . -- DeMarcus Cousins had 25 points and 16 rebounds to help the Sacramento Kings snap a seven-game losing streak by defeating the Chicago Bulls 99-70 on Monday night. DeAndre Jordan Jersey .com) - Brad Stuart has yet to play a regular-season game for the Colorado Avalanche, but that didnt deter the club from signing the veteran defenseman to a two-year contract extension on Monday. http://www.clippersnbateamshop.com/Customized/ . You can, too, Clay Buchholz, if we ignore the sixth inning of Game 2. Doug Fister and Jake Peavy, youre up next in Game 4 and theres a lot to live up to. Brice Johnson Jersey . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. Danilo Gallinari Jersey .The seventh-seeded Raonic was scheduled to play U.S. Open finalist Kei Nishikori of Japan, but was replaced in the Group B pool by Spanish substitute David Ferrer.Raonic, who was 0-2 at the year-end event, said he suffered the injury late in the first set of Tuesdays 6-3, 7-6 loss to Murray.OTTAWA - Jean-Gabriel Pageau will be sticking with the Ottawa Senators for a little longer than expected since the team has decided to loan centre Curtis Lazar to the Canadian team for the world junior hockey championship.Pageau was recalled from AHL Binghamton last Sunday due to an injury to Zack Smith. He has now been pencilled in as Lazars replacement.I said its a win-win, Senators coach Dave Cameron said Thursday. What its going to do is give us a real good look at (Pageau). We think hes a guy in the organization thats done a lot of good in the American Hockey League. He was sent down after he was cut, which Im sure was a major disappointment.We think hes an NHL player so its going to open up an opportunity for him to show what he can do and we feel that he can come in and provide the same role that Curtis was doing.Pageau, who has played in 38 career NHL games, was most impressive during the Senators playoff run in 2013 when he scored a hat trick in a first-round game against the Montreal Canadiens.He played 28 games last season but didnt make the cut out of training camp this season. Senators general manager Bryan Murray said sending Pageau to Binghamton was one of the toughest decisions the organization had to make.The 22-year-old was clearly disappointed, but worked hard in the minors and had 18 points (8-10) in 25 games.Pageau just smiled when asked whether he or Lazar was happier about the world junior loan.I think were both happy, he said.For me its a good thing, it opens up a spot for me for a couple of games, Pageau added. I dont know how long I was supposed to be here or whats going on with me, but for sure itss opened up a chance for me and an opportunity and Ill do my best to help the team and for sure I wish him the best.ddddddddddddCameron admitted that with injuries to Smith and Chris Neil, the decision to release Lazar was difficult. However, knowing that Pageau was available to fill the void helped.The head coach added that if Pageau hadnt been playing so well in Binghamton there was a good chance Lazar wouldnt be going to the world juniors.I think thats fair to say, especially with the injury to Smitty, he said. Now you start thinking a little deeper because youre down one less guy. Youre still one less guy in terms of depth because of Smiths injury so its a little more intense for the coach. Ive always said ... I dont make decisions based on fear of injuries. If theyre going to happen, theyre going to happen.Cameron is confident Pageau will fill in nicely for Lazar.I think Pageau can match that, based on his play, he said. Ill have to answer that after Pageau plays some games, but (Im) very confident he can come in and provide us with that.After taking five of a possible six points on their recent road trip, the Senators are looking for a strong finish before the Christmas break. Ottawa has a tough task ahead with three games in four nights starting Friday against the visiting Anaheim Ducks. This past road trip wasnt pretty, but if you told me at the beginning wed be coming home with five out of six points, Id be pretty happy, said forward Kyle Turris. Theres obviously lots of stuff we have to improve and work on, but were moving in the right direction.The pace of our game I think has come up quite a bit.
