Paris, France - Eight-time champion Rafael Nadal and former runner-up Novak Djokovic were a pair of easy first-round winners, while third-seeded Stan Wawrinka was a stunning loser Monday at the French Open. Dennis Smith Jr. Jersey. The world No. 1 Nadal improved to an incredible 60-1 at Roland Garros by cruising past American journeyman Robby Ginepri 6-0, 6-3, 6-0 on Court Lenglen. The reigning French and U.S. Open champion has won four straight and eight of the last nine French Open titles. He beat David Ferrer in last years all- Spanish finale in Paris. Up next for Nadal will be rising Austrian Dominic Thiem. The 2012 finalist Djokovic smacked 40 winners in blowing past Portuguese Joao Sousa 6-1, 6-2, 6-4 on Court Chatrier. The struggling Sousa has now lost his last eight matches on tour. The players were forced to stop and start because of wet conditions in Paris on Monday. Djokovic was leading 4-1 when rain halted play, but the match resumed about an hour later. The former No. 1 and six-time Grand Slam champ Djokovic lost to Nadal in the final two years ago and succumbed to the mighty Spaniard in an epic semifinal here last year, including a dramatic 9-7 fifth set. Up next for Djokovic will be Frances Jeremy Chardy. Lanky Spaniard Guillermo Garcia-Lopez shocked the Swiss Australian Open champion Wawrinka in 6-4, 5-7, 6-2, 6-0 fashion. It marked the first time in seven years that a third seed exited the French draw in the opening round since American Andy Roddick did so in 2007. The last man to win the Aussie Open and lose in the first round of the French Open was Petr Korda in 1998. Also on Monday, Slovak and recent Munich clay court titlist Martin Klizan ousted ninth-seeded Japanese Kei Nishikori 7-6 (7-4), 6-1, 6-2. The recent Madrid runner-up to Nadal, Nishikori, had been nursing a back injury in recent weeks. Nishikori is the highest-ranked Japanese man in history, at No. 10 in the world, one spot lower than his career high. Fourteenth-seeded Italian Fabio Fognini eased past German Andreas Beck 6-4, 6-4, 6-1, while 17th-seeded Spaniard Tommy Robredo, of Spain, came back to overcome Brit James Ward 4-6, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 and 18th-seeded Ernests Gulbis fought back to best Pole Lukasz Kubot 4-6, 6-4, 7-5, 6-1. Gulbis is fresh off his clay title in Nice, his second title on French soil this season. Meanwhile, 25th-seeded Croat Marin Cilic topped Spaniard Pablo Andujar 6-0, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6); 26th-seeded Spaniard Feliciano Lopez defeated Bosnian Damir Dzumhur 6-3, 7-6 (10-8), 6-3; 27th-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut doused Italian Paolo Lorenzi 6-3, 7-5, 6-2; 29th-seeded Frenchman Gilles Simon whipped Croat Ante Pavic 6-1, 6-1, 6-3; and Russian Teymuraz Gabashvili knocked out 30th-seeded Canadian Vasek Pospisil 6-4, 6-2, 6-3. The first marathon of the fortnight saw Argentine Facundo Bagnis outlast Frenchman Julien Benneteau 6-3, 6-2, 1-6, 3-6, 18-16, including a 2-hour, 23- minute final set. Total match time was 4 hours, 26 minutes. Several other men reached the second round, including Thiem, American Donald Young, Frenchmen Kenny De Schepper, Benoit Paire and Adrian Mannarino, Spaniard Marcel Granollers, Austrian Jurgen Melzer, and Dutchman Robin Haase, who rolled past former world No. 3 Nikolay Davydenko 7-5, 6-4, 6-2. Thiem dismissed Frenchman Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4, 7-6 (7-3), 6-2, while the left- handed Young edged out Israeli veteran Dudi Sela 6-1, 2-6, 6-1, 6-0. The first round is scheduled to conclude Tuesday, including matches for a fifth-seeded Ferrer, seventh-seeded Andy Murray and 11th-seeded rising Bulgarian star Grigor Dimitrov. Ferrer will take on Dutchman Igor Sijsling, while the Wimbledon champion Murray will meet Kazakhstans Andrey Golubev and Dimitrov will tangle with 6-foot-10 Croat Ivo Karlovic, who was a runner-up in Duesseldorf last week. Custom Dallas Mavericks Jerseys. Bowditch, the 30-year-old Australian seeking his first PGA Tour title, shot a 4-under 68 to reach 12 under at TPC San Antonio. Matt Kuchar and Andrew Loupe were tied for second. Kuchar shot 65, and Loupe had a 70. Josh McRoberts Jersey. This time, it was Eric Chavezs turn. Stuck in a rut since coming off the disabled list, Chavez hit the first pitch he saw in the ninth inning for a run-scoring single, sending the Diamondbacks to another walk-off victory, 4-3 over the San Francisco Giants on Saturday night.The Dallas Stars returned to the postseason, after missing for five straight years, and appear to be a team on the rise with two of the games best under-25 forwards leading the way. Off-Season Game Plan looks at a Stars team that is trending in the right direction, but likely needs an offensive boost to take the next step. The Stars were a strong puck possession team, that made the playoffs despite below-average 5-on-5 goaltending results (more a reflection on backups than starter Kari Lehtonen) and were carried offensively by Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, who combined for 163 points on 231 Stars goals. They were also the only Stars forwards to finish with more than 35 points, so that could be the next area on which to focus for improvement -- boosting the secondary scoring so that the weight doesnt fall so heavily upon Benn and Seguin. "I think if you want to be a contender, you have to be deep down the middle," GM Jim Nill told the Dallas Morning News. "Thats something weve talked about over and over again." Having needs is not a big deal -- every team can get better -- but the Stars are in a good position because, after last summers additions of Tyler Seguin and Valeri Nichushkin, theyve added building blocks that give the team a reason to have a positive outlook. Now, its a matter of finding the right pieces for the supporting cast so that the Stars are ready to make noise in the postseason, taking the next step to compete with the powers of the Western Conference. The TSN.ca Rating is an efficiency rating based on per-game statistics including goals and assists -- weighted for strength (ie. power play, even, shorthanded) -- Corsi, adjusted for zone starts, quality of competition and quality of teammates, hits, blocked shots, penalty differential and faceoffs. Generally, a replacement-level player is around a 60, a top six forward and top four defenceman will be around 70, stars will be over 80 and MVP candidates could go over 90. Sidney Crosby finished at the top of the 2013-2014 regular season ratings at 87.12. Salary cap information all comes from the indispensable www.capgeek.com.

They landed a premier young scorer around whom they could build and Seguin responded to an increased role in Dallas by finishing fourth in the league with 84 points. Signed to a team-friendly deal for five more years? Thats icing on the cake. Seguin paired with Jamie Benn on the Stars first line and they were a formidable tandem. Only Anaheims duo of Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, with 128 points, were teammates with more points than Benn and Seguin, who had 116 last season. Benn is a model power forward complement to Seguin and at 24-years-old, is hitting his prime. Over the past four seasons, Benn has been an elite offensive performer, ranking second only to Evgeni Malkin, in points-per-60-minutes during 5-on-5 play (minimum 3000 minutes). Seguin, still in the infancy of his career, ranks 14th on that list. An undrafted free agent out of Brown University who climbed through the Central Hockey League, ECHL and AHL before reaching the NHL, Ryan Garbutt is blue collar, yet surprisingly productive. He was one of four forwards to record at least 30 points and 100 penalty minutes last season and, since arriving in the league, this grinder has been generating shots on goal like a scorer. Over the past couple seasons, Rich Peverley has been one of the lowest-percentage finishers, among players that have generated at least 200 shots, but hes generally an effective and versatile forward who can move around the lineup as needed. The primary issue for Peverley is that he collapsed during a game last season and there is the possibility that the cardiac event will prevent him from playing again. Theres a lot of uncertainty regarding Peverleys future, so the Stars will need to have some options ready if Peverley cant make it back. After his rookie season, even though he scored one goal in 24 regular season games after the Olympics, it sure appears that the Stars stole Valeri Nichushkin with the 10th pick in last summers draft. He has a huge frame and has high-end skill; its just a matter of harnessing that talent and getting the most out of it. Nichushkin spent much of the year riding shotgun with Benn and Seguin and if the Russian teenager develops quickly, that line could be unstoppable. Alex Chiasson burst out of the gate, with nine points in nine games, before points and shots on goal dried up, and his ice time declined. A 6-foot-3 winger with some skill and a solid two-way game, Chiasson was one of the unluckiest players in terms of goaltending save percentage when he was on the ice. 35-year-old winger Erik Cole is two seasons removed from a career-high 35 goals, but that seems like eons ago. His production has fallen the past couple seasons and, with one year left on his deal, Cole could be a buyout candidate. Shawn Horcoff was a spare part for much of the season, playing under 12 minutes a game from January through April, and he wasnt terribly effective when he did play, but raised his game in the playoffs and the last year of his contract pays $3-million (compared to his $5.5-million cap hit). Cody Eakin provides a solid two-way game, but may not yet score enough to capably hold down a top-six role. At the same time, hes 23, so its possible that his offensive game could continue to grow, particularly if there is a skill upgrade on his wings. Agitator Antoine Roussel is becoming even more annoying to play against because, in addition to his in-your-face style of play, hes chipping in offensively. Since 2006-2007, there is one other forward (Steve Downie, 2009-2010) who, while accumulating more than 200 penalty minutes, had more than the 29 points that Roussel contributed last season. Picked up on waivers from Pittsburgh, Dustin Jeffrey is battling for his NHL life. He has 31 points in 124 career games, and last seasons 34 games represented a career-high, but with only 9:34 average time on ice. If the Stars were to seek another scoring centre, they could try for Paul Stastny or Mikhail Grabovski in free agency but, aside from those two, might be looking to the trade route for a bigger fish like Eric Staal or Jason Spezza. Those wont come cheaply, either, but that might be the kind of move to push the Stars to a new level.

Trevor Daley was handling a reduced workload for the first three quarters of the season, before he ended up playing top pair minutes down the stretch. Thats a bit of a step up from what Daley has provided normally, thoughout his career, but the 30-year-old held his own, so its not unreasonable to expect that, next season, he could pick up where he left off. While it would be easy to pin a nepotism label on Jordie Benn holding a spot with the Stars, since his brother is a franchise player, but Jordie has earned his own place, making steady improvement and he averaged more than 20 minutes of ice time per game after the Olympic break last season. On the Stars, only Brenden Dillon has more hits and blocked shots combined than Benns 240 last season. 24-year-old Kevin Connauton was a part-time player in his first NHL season and while he didnt play a big role, or stand out especially, he was effective at getting pucks to the net. There appears to be competition available for the 5-6-7 spots on the Stars blueline, so Connauton might have a chance to earn more minutes. Veteran Sergei Gonchar was something of a free agent bust, with diminishing ice time, and just four points in his last 35 (regular season plus playoff) games. He still has a year left on his contract, but it would come as no surprise if the Stars sought a team to take the 40-year-old off their hands. At his salary, it may not be easy. Aaron Rome has played 52 games for the Stars, since signing as a free agent a couple of summers ago, and he hasnt done anything to suggest hes worthy of more than a part-time role. A rising young shutdown defender, Brenden Dillon has size, toughness and improved his skating enough to get signed as a free agent out of junior. Hes come a long way since scraping into the league as an undrafted free agent and, as a restricted free agent this summer, is likely due for a health pay raise. Dillon has been among the most effective Stars defencemen over the past couple seasons and, at 23, he should continue to get better. If the Stars are going to take a step forward, they could use another top-four defenceman, effectively to make up for the departure of Stephane Robidas, who was traded to Anaheim last season. Maybe thats prospect Jamie Oleksiak, or maybe it comes via free agency, where Matt Niskanen, Anton Stralman, Tom Gilbert or Andrei Markov would be among the potential free agent upgrades.

Just as importantly, given the injuries in his past, Lehtonen has appeared in 160 games over that span. If Tim Thomas is prepared to handle a backup role, he might be good for the Stars to re-sign but, if not, they can seek out inexpensive free agent options. Top Prospects Player Pos.

Even with outstanding size, hes not very physical and has been relatively mediocre in 23 career NHL games, but a 21-year-old with his size and mobility should have a good chance at success. A 6-foot-4 power forward Brett Ritchie finished the regular season strong, with 16 points in his last 16 games before suffering a lower-body injury. Hes recently returned to the lineup for the AHL playoffs, and while Ritchie could start in the AHL next season, his upward trajectory should have him knocking on the door. Overhyped since he was picked 11th overall in 2010, Jack Campbell has struggled to perform at a high level consistently enough to know if hes going to make it to the NHL. While he missed a bunch of time with injuries this year, it is promising that he had a .942 save percentage in 16 AHL games. The 22-year-old could likely use another year of seasoning to show that he is ready. Drafted in the fourth round in 2007, Colton Sceviour has steadily improved to the point that hes on the cusp of the Dallas roster. He scored nine goals and 15 points in in 32 (regular season plsu playoff) games with Dallas, performing effectively in his first legitimate NHL look. A second-round pick in 2012, Devin Shore had a terrific sophomore season at Maine and his offensive upside puts him above some of the other Stars prospects. If Shore has a big junior season, as the Black Bears captain, he may be ready to turn pro. Picked in the fifth round in 2010, John Klingberg is a smooth-skating offensive defenceman who is coming off a strong season in the Swedish Hockey League. The 21-year-old should be ready to challenge for an NHL job quickly. Jason Dickinson is a skileld centre who was the 29th pick in last summers draft. Hes enjoyed a strong season on powerhouse Guelph team, scoring 102 points in 88 (regular season plus playoff) games. Hell need time to fill out, and get stronger, but he will be intriguing a couple years down the road. The 13th pick in 2012, Radek Faksa hasnt put up big scoring numbers, which limits his upside, but he has the size and conscientious play to make it in a checking role. Taken in the second round in 2010, Patrik Nemeth is a big, stay-at-home defenceman, and while he battled injuries last season, he struggled in eight games with Dallas; perhaps an indication that more time on the farm is needed. A third-round pick in 2010, Alex Guptill had 94 points in 110 games over three seasons athe University of Michigan, and now embarks on his pro career. He has size and offensive ability, but will need some time in the AHL as he gets accustomed to a pro schedule. Drafted in the second round last summer, Philippe Desrosiers is a promising, athletic goalie, but its goign to be years before its reasonable to have any expectations on his pro prospects. So far, so good. Curtis McKenzie was a sixth-round pick in 2009 and had four unremarkable seasons at Miami-Ohio, but had a superb first pro campaign, finishing second on the Stars AHL team in scoring.

When football coaches express the old “next man up” rhetoric, Ohio State is exactly what they’re talking about. Dion Waiters Jersey. We’ve all heard coaches argue injuries aren’t going to sink their team, that a new player will step in and step up, and that everyone else will rally around and pick up the slack. We’ve never believed them. Maybe along the line or in the receiving corps can a team suffer a couple major injuries, but at quarterback? No way. And then there’s Ohio State. The team lost presumed Heisman candidate Braxton Miller to a shoulder injury ahead of the season only to find actual Heisman candidate JT Barrett. Barrett led the Buckeyes to a perfect conference record and 11-1 overall record en route to finishing fifth in Heisman voting. It was touch and go for a while, with Ohio State getting upset by a mediocre Virginia Tech team in the second week of the season, but the Buckeyes reeled off 10 straight wins, including strong conference victories over Michigan State and Minnesota, to earn a spot in the Big 10 Championship Game. A dual threat quarterback, Barrett finished with 3,772 combined yards and 45 combined scores, the third most among all quarterbacks, but fractured his ankle in the team’s win over Michigan on rivalry weekend. Still with an outside shot at the College Football Playoff, there was concern the Buckeyes’ couldn’t catch lightning in a bottle twice and wouldn’t even emerge as top team in the Big 10. Those concerns proved needless as Ohio State crushed Wisconsin 59-0, a performance – coupled with the team’s high tv ratings – that vaulted them into the Top 4 and a CFP spot. Against the fourth best defence in the country, one-time third string quarterback Cardale Jones put up 257 yards and three touchdowns on just 17 pass attempts in the 59-point rout. While no one believes Jones is to Barrett as Barrett was to Miller earlier this season, his Big 10 Championship performance gave Buckeyes fans hope they can hang with Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. Perhaps the best matchup against the Crimson Tide is between the two men patrolling the sidelines. If Nick Saban is the best coach in college football, Urban Meyer is right on his tail at No. 2. The Sugar Bowl is the latest edition in the rivalry of the off-field friends that burned bright in the SEC before Meyer left Florida. There are college football fans that believe Meyer and Saban ushered in the era of SEC domination still currently in play. We all know what Saban has done with the Tide, winning three national championships in four years, but Meyer’s nearly as impressive run with the Gators superseded that. Meyer won two national championships in his six years with the Gators before leaving under suspect circumstances, and subsequently burning a lot of bridges on the way out. He has since done quite well for himself up north with the Buckeyes. He led the team to an undefeated season his first year in town, but the Buckeyes were ineligible for the postseason due to violations stemming from the sweater vest era. While Meyer and Miller, err Barrett, err Jones are the headliners for OSU heading into the Sugar Bowl, they’ve got a number of others that figure to play a part in the outcome in the New Year’s Eve semifinal. Running back Ezekiel Elliott was a Top 20 rusher, compiling 1,402 yards and 12 touchdowns, and receiver Devin Smith had 11 touchdowns, ninth most in the nation among receivers, to go with his 799 receiving yards. Ohio State’s top draft eligible prospects are on the defensive side of the ball. While they’re currently void a prospect with a first round draft grade, DT Michael Bennett is a high second round prospect at the moment and could fight his way into the Top 32 with a strong postseason. Senior cornerback Doran Grant is next up, currently sporting a mid-round grade. Grant could use a solid postseason to sneak into the third round. If Jones can continue his best Barrett impression for another week, the Buckeyes carry a Top 10 offence into the Sugar Bowl. While they’re just middle of the pack through the air, Ohio State is 11th in the nation in rushing at 260 yards a game. All in, Ohio State was fourth in offensive yards with 6,599 behind only the big shots Baylor, Oregon, and … Marshall, and ahead of TCU. The Buckeyes also sport a Top 20 defence. They finished 15th in yards against, allowing only 328 per game and were just as good against the pass, 17th in the nation allowing 188.2 yards per game. Ohio State was a little more susceptible against the run, finishing 33rd in the NCAA at a 139.8 yards per game clip. Ohio State needed their strong tv ratings for selection committee members to be “convinced” they were one of the best four teams in the nation this year. That they may not belong in the first ever College Football Playoff is exhibited in the betting line, the Buckeyes heading into the game as nine-point underdogs. Maybe there’s still some magic left in OSU’s impressive season, but it’s likely they’ll be very hard pressed to be still playing come New Year’s Day. James Johnson Jersey." Also, defencemen "were found to be at a higher risk of suffering a concussion than other players, perhaps due to turning their back to retrieve pucks along the boards, which leaves them vulnerable. Hassan Whiteside Jersey. -- Pinch-runner Rajai Daviss decision to steal third base just as Oakland catcher Derek Norris was throwing the ball back to the pitcher caught most everyone by surprise -- including several of his Detroit teammates.NEW YORK -- Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig says the sport will wait until after the season to study whether the rule preventing pitchers from using pine tar should be changed. New York Yankees pitcher Michael Pineda was suspended for 10 games Thursday, a day after umpires found pine tar on his neck during a game against Boston. Pineda said he was trying to get a better grip on balls on a cool night, and pitchers say they suspect pine tar use may be routine -- although usually discreet. Baseball rules prohibit pitchers from using foreign substances. "When the year is over, we ought to look at all this," Selig told the Associated Press Sports Editors on Friday. While Pineda appeared to have pine tar on the palm of his pitching hand during a start against the Red Sox on April 10, Boston never brought it to the attention of umpires that night. The Red Sox did point it out the umps Wednesday. "I think the way that the rulle has been enforced, as with lots of rules in baseball, is that when theres a complaint, we do something about it," MLB chief operating officer Rob Manfred said. Alonzo Mourning Jersey. . "And thats what happened here. I dont think that this particular incident is all that different from other incidents that weve had in the past. We will like we do every off-season look at this issue, but remember, pine tar is one of a number of foreign substances, and you have to have a rule that fits for all of them. I dont think theres anything all that different about the Pineda." In other pine tar penalties, Tampa Bays Joel Peralta was penalized eight games in 2012, the Angels Brendan Donnelly 10 days in 2005 and St. Louis Julian Tavarez 10 days in 2004. The suspensions of Donnelly and Tavarez were cut to eight days after they asked the players association to appeal, and Peralta dropped his challenge with no reduction. cheap falcons jerseyscheap ravens jerseyscheap bills jerseyscheap bears jerseyscheap bengals jerseyscheap cowboys jerseyscheap lions jerseyscheap texans jerseyscheap colts jerseyscheap jaguars jerseyscheap chiefs jerseyscheap rams jerseyscheap dolphins jerseyscheap vikings jerseyscheap saints jerseyscheap giants jerseyscheap jets jerseyscheap eagles jerseyscheap steelers jerseyscheap 49ers jerseys' ' '

Kingston, RI (SportsNetwork. Authentic Ray Spalding Jersey.com) - Treveon Graham scored 16 of his 26 points in the second half and No. 17 VCU rallied from nine points down to beat Rhode Island 65-60 on Tuesday night. VCU took its first lead since the first half on Grahams 3-pointer with 2 1/2 minutes left, part of a 12-2 run to end the game sparked by Melvin Johnsons 3 on the previous possession. Mo Alie-Cox scored the last of his 10 points on a dunk during the surge and Johnson added nine points for VCU (14-3, 4-0 Atlantic 10), which has won nine in a row since falling to then-No. 7 Virginia on Dec. 6. (The Cavaliers are currently ranked No. 2 in the country.) E.C. Matthews scored 22 points to lead Rhode Island (11-4, 3-1), which had a six-game winning streak stopped and lost for the first time in eight home games this season. Hassan Martin added 10 points, 10 rebounds and six blocks in the loss and Jarelle Reischel also scored 10. Rhode Island only scored two more points after Matthews leaning 3 from the right corner and Jared Terrells dunk gave it a 58-53 lead with under 3 1/2 minutes remaining.

You have likely heard of RuneScape, but did you know that it still attracts two million monthly active users and buy RS gold contains hundreds of thousands of subscribers?First launched by programmer Jagex 16 decades back in January 2001, RuneScape has since split into two matches: Old School -- where gamers can enjoy the classic gameplay -- as well as the new RuneScape, in which users get regular new updates to the name.

In reality, RuneScape has been rising for the last three decades in terms of players and revenues.The game could be set to receive another shot in the arm with the announcement that Jagex is rolling out the longstanding name to mobile platforms.

Old School RuneScape will hit the program stores first this winter, whilst RuneScape is expected to follow early 2018. Both games are also cross-platform -- meaning users may play their PC counterparts and load up the specific same figures and continue where they left off.It's uncertain whether the matches will each get a roll out on the App Store and Google Play, though Jagex is in discussions with Apple and Google in regards to the matter.

While the transfer to cellular could open RuneScape to a new generation of gamers, Jagex is targeting its current user base and those gamers that have since churned out the game.Speaking to PocketGamer.biz, Jagex Senior Product Director Neil McClarty says even though its consumer base is passionate and highly invested in the game, many gamers are getting old. With this, he explains, comes time stresses on sport time due to other commitments such as work and loved ones.

Hence the studio set about searching for ways to allow users play the game on the move, and cellular was the ideal fit. "For us it was actually born out of that, and therefore the cross platform element was crucial," says McClarty. "We did not want this to be a brand-new game since it's about looking after our RuneScape gold present players, allowing them to be able to play the sport that they're playing, together with the characters they have spent .

NEW YORK -- When you have only 10 wins all season, every one is big. Pirates Jacob Stallings Jersey. So dont ask the New York Islanders to rank them. Whether the moment struck them in the immediate aftermath of a 5-3 victory over the rival New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden, the Islanders werent letting on. They were just happy to come away with a regulation win on Friday night. "I dont think we had won too many games overall," said forward Michael Grabner, who scored two goals. "Weve got to work ourselves back into the playoff picture. Today was a good start, but tomorrow is another test." The Islanders (10-19-7) will host the Pacific Division-leading Anaheim Ducks on Saturday. New York is still a ways away from the playoff race, but it closed within seven points of the sliding Rangers (16-18-2). Thomas Vanek snapped a tie with a power-play goal early in the third period for the Islanders, who earned their first regulation victory in over a month. Vanek scored during a two-man advantage at 1:18 of the third to give the Islanders their second win in 15 games and first in regulation since Nov. 12 against Nashville. They were 2-10-4 since then, including losses after regulation in their previous two. The one that really stung was a home defeat against Tampa Bay on Tuesday in which they blew a late 2-0 lead and were beaten in a shootout. "Weve lost some heartbreakers, there is no doubt about it," Islanders coach Jack Capuano said. "For them to come into this building, on this stage -- its a big win for us." Cal Clutterbuck scored a short-handed, penalty-shot goal, and Grabner added a short-handed tally in the first period. Defenceman Brian Strait scored in the second, and Grabner added an empty-netter with 50.3 seconds left for the Islanders, who scored as many as four goals for the first time in 15 games. "Its good. We scored more than two goals," Capuano said. "Its been a long time." Evgeni Nabokov made 21 saves for the win. The Rangers got goals from Benoit Pouliot, Derek Dorsett and Derek Stepan, but Henrik Lundqvist stopped only 15 of 19 shots as New York fell to 1-4-2 on its team-record, nine-game homestand. "This was definitely a frustrating game. There is no question we beat ourselves," Lundqvist said. "We kept making some simple mistakes, and I was not there to clean it up." The Rangers tied it 2-2 just three minutes into the second when Dorsetts shot from the side boards hit Islanders defenceman Thomas Hickey in front and caromed in. The Rangers then grabbed their first lead, but not before Grabner almost scored his second short-handed goal. His drive struck the crossbar. "I had a pretty good move, and I guess I put it a little too high," Grabner said. The Rangers then cashed in at the other end. Rick Nashs pass from the boards struck Hickey and caromed to Stepan for a quick shot that produced the power-play goal at 7:58. However, the Islanders responded with 8:34 left in the second on Straits first regular-season NHL goal, off a feed from Josh Bailey. Prized prospect Ryan Strome earned his first NHL point in his third game. The teams combined for three goals in a span of 2:57 late in the first period -- all during Rangers power plays, but only one scored by the home team. With Islanders teammate Andrew MacDonald off for high-sticking, Clutterbuck made it 1-0 when he scored on a questionable penalty shot. Clutterbuck was awarded the attempt after he got free for a breakaway with defenceman Ryan McDonagh chasing. McDonagh gave a light check with his stick, and that was enough for the penalty shot to be called -- much to the dismay of incredulous Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. "I just felt that I got a little tug," Clutterbuck said. "Obviously, it impeded me from making a play. Thats what the ref saw, I guess." Clutterbuck netted his fourth of the season when his shot eluded Lundqvists glove. The Rangers went on their third power play of the period 2:27 later, and again the Islanders took advantage. The puck got past McDonagh at the point, and the speedy Grabner took off alone. He cut from right-to-left and tucked the puck inside the left post with 2:51 left in the first. Grabner had gone 31 games without a goal since he netted two on opening night at New Jersey on Oct. 4. The Rangers got one back 30 seconds later on that power play when Pouliot scored from in-close off a pass from Chris Kreider. New York went 2 for 7 on the power play, allowing two goals in the process and failing to score on two opportunities in the games final 6-plus minutes. "When you outwork teams, you will find the bounces going your way," Nash said. "When you get outworked, thats when they seem to go against you." NOTES: Bailey had gone 12 games without a point. ... Rangers forward J.T. Miller was in the lineup after being recalled from Hartford (AHL) on Thursday. Pirates Tanner Anderson Jersey.Y. - OK, it is done. Pirates Joe Musgrove Jersey. Francis told several hundred members of the European Olympic Committees that when sport "is considered only in economic terms and consequently for victory at every cost .ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. -- Injured Tampa Bay pitcher Alex Cobb could rejoin the depleted Rays rotation late this month. Cobb went on the 15-day disabled list April 13 with a strained oblique in his left side. He threw off a bullpen mound before Tuesday nights game against Baltimore and throw a batting practice session in a few days. Cobb says he didnt hold back with his pitches. He said he threw "like it was a game situation." Tampa Bay starters Mattt Moore and Jeremy Hellickson also are on the disabled list. Pirates Edgar Santana Jersey.

CLEVELAND - Indians All-Star Justin Masterson was forced to leave his start Monday in the second inning with rib soreness. Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey. Masterson was pulled by manager Terry Francona after throwing just 25 pitches. The Indians said Masterson left because of "soreness in the left side of his rib cage." The team will likely provide a further medical update following the game. Masterson first showed discomfort during an at-bat by Matt Wieters, leading off the second. Francona came out with a trainer to check on his big right-hander, who stayed in the game. However, after giving up a single to Wieters, Masterson paused before making a second pitch to Nick Markakis and shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera waved toward the dugout. Francona came out for the second time and replaced Masterson, who dejectedly walked off the field and threw a cup of water in the dugout before heading to the clubhouse. The Indians cant afford to be without their ace. They entered the week just 3 1/2 games out in the AL wild-card chase, and have a favourable schedule in September when they play only two teams with winning records. Masterson is 14-9 with a 3.49 ERA. He leads the Indians in wins, innings and is tied for the AL lead with three shutouts. He was named an All-Star for the first time this season. Dario Saric 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. Derrick Rose Jersey. PETERSBURG, Fla.HALIFAX - Canada has a 2-0 lead in its Davis Cup tennis playoff against Colombia.Vancouvers Vasek Pospisil beat Santiago Giraldo 6-3, 7-6 (2) 6-3 in the opening singles match at the Halifax Metro Centre on Friday. Milos Raonic of Thornhill, Ont., then followed with a 6-3, 6-3, 6-2 decision over Alejandro Gonzalez.It certainly wasnt the best tennis that I ever played but I am happy with the way I competed, said the 24-year-old Pospisil. I played really well on the big points. The court here in Halifax is very, very fast, which favours my serve, but also makes it difficult to set up points. But I managed to adjust, and thats why I felt really happy after this first winRaonic dominated his match with a powerful serve and forehand. Raonic finished Gonzalez off in one hour 45 minutes with 30 aces to the Colombians one.Canada is a very difficult opponent said Colombian captain Mauricio Hadad. Both our players had their chances, particularly Santiago, but Pospisil came up with some big serves and huge forehands in the most important moments of the match.Raonic was so focused on doing well and winning second point for Canada today that he wasnt even bothered with the fact that the radar gun that measures the speed on the serve wasnt working properly.I was serving quite well today despite some problems earlier in the match, aand I know that this can be demoralizing for my opponents, said Raonic. Kevin Garnett Jersey. I was really motivated to do well today, although my performance was probably at a B-plus level.Martin Laurendeau, the captain for Canada, praised both his players.It was a good day at the office. Two wins without losing a set, against solid team is very satisfying. said Laurendeau. But we still have to win one more point. It can happen on Saturday in doubles, but Colombians are a very good team. We have to play well againFast surface at the Halifax Metro Centre favours Canadian players who are used to hard courts and playing indoors.But doubles is a different story, there is no rallies, and if you are returning well and can finish the point the big serve is not a deciding factor said Laurendeau.The best-of-five tie continues Saturday with Pospisil and Torontos Daniel Nestor facing Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah in doubles. On Sunday, Raonic plays Giraldo while Pospisil takes on Gonzalez.Frank Dancevic of Niagara Falls, Ont., is Canadas spare.The winner of the tie moves into the elite World Group next season. Canada is looking to reclaim its World Group spot after a first-round loss to Japan earlier this year.A loss to Colombia would relegate the Canadians to Americas Zone Group I for the first time since 2011.

LAS VEGAS -- Gonzaga has been the class of the West Coast Conference, regular hoisting regular-season and tournament trophies for nearly two decades. Authentic Aleksander Barkov Jersey. Even for a team such as this, finishing off another title sweep is a feel-good accomplishment. Sam Dower Jr. had 20 points and 13 rebounds, and Gonzaga held its ground during a second-half rally to beat BYU 75-64 Tuesday night for its 13th WCC championship. "It never gets old. Never gets old," Gonzaga coach Mark Few said. "Its obviously something we start talking about it and prepare for way back in the summer. For these guys to step up and make it happen, not only in the regular season but to win here and not share, is just an awesome, awesome accomplishment." Gonzaga (28-6) raced out to a 21-point lead in the first half, taking advantage of the Cougars late overtime game the night before. Once the Cougars got their legs and started chipping away at the lead, the Bulldogs had an answer, leaving no doubt about the NCAA tournament by earning the conferences automatic bid. Gary Bell Jr. had 14 points and David Stockton dished out seven assists to send the Bulldogs to the NCAA tournament for the 16th straight year. "We came in with the mindset and us controlling being in the tournament," Stockton said. "We didnt try to think about that, just winning the next game." BYU (23-11) rallied after a dismal first half, pulling within eight with 3 minutes left. The Cougars couldnt finish off the comeback and now have a long five-day wait until Selection Sunday. Tyler Haws had 24 points and Kyle Collinsworth added 13 before leaving with a right leg injury in the second half. "They really went after us at the start," coach Dave Rose said. "But our guys battled. We battled the whole game, got it to single digits, but couldnt get over the hump." Gonzaga and BYU split two meetings during the regular season. The Zags won the first one by 15 after hitting 10 of 22 3-pointers in Spokane. The Cougars were much better guarding the perimeter in Provo, limiting the Bulldogs to 4 of 18 shooting from 3-point range. Playing in its 17th straight WCC final, Gonzaga dominated early in the rubber match with a nearly perfect first half. Offensively, the Bulldogs built a quick nine-point lead and kept pouring it on behind Dower, who had 14 points on 7-of-11 shooting in the first half. Gonzaga was just as good defensively, contesting shots inside and getting out to BYUs shooters on the perimeter. The Cougars struggled against the Bulldogs pressure, missing 11 of their first 15 shots on their way to a 9-for-27 half. Gonzaga led by as much as 21 in the first half and was up 44-27 at the break. "From a coaching standpoint, thats how you want your guys this time of year," Few said. "Its the biggest stage thus far and we were in attack mode, we were playing great defence." Dower kept it rolling early in the second half, scoring on a hard drive with a foul, then throwing down a pair of dunks to put the Bulldogs up 53-33. BYU suffered another blow when Collinsworth had to be helped off the court midway through the second half, unable to put any weight on his right leg after going down under Gonzagas basket. Playing without its facilitator and second-leading scorer, the Cougars found a way to claw their way back. Haws has had trouble getting shots to fall in the WCC tournament and had a so-so first half, scoring nine points on 2-of-7 shooting. When his shots started to fall in the second half, so did Gonzagas lead. Haws hit a 3-pointer in rhythm to cut Gonzagas lead to 13 and the Cougars kept chipping away at the lead, getting it down to eight on two free throws by Haws with 2:56 left. That was it for BYU, though, leaving the Cougars to wait to see if the selection committee believes their resume is good enough for an NCAA tournament bid. "I think we should find ourselves in that tournament," said Haws, who made all 11 of his free throws after hitting all 14 in the semifinals against San Francisco. "This has been a challenging season, but I feel like our guys have come together and done enough to get in." Authentic James Reimer Jersey.

Authentic Maxim Mamin Jersey. -- Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman is undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone above his left eye but has no other serious injuries after being hit in the face by a line drive in a spring training game.Fayetteville, AR (SportsNetwork.com) - The 25th-ranked Arkansas Razorbacks will try to continue their dominance over the North Texas Mean Green when the two teams meet up for a non-conference tilt inside Bud Walton Arena on Friday night. Arkansas has dominated the head-to-head series, winning all 13 prior meetings with North Texas. This time around, the Razorbacks find themselves in the national rankings for the first time since November of 2007 and are coming off Tuesday nights 78-72 win at SMU. The last time Arkansas started a season 4-0 was 2006. The Razorbacks will try to extend their 17-game home winning streak against non- conference foes. This marks the road opener for North Texas. The Mean Green went 4-1 on their season-opening, five-game homestand and will now play three straight on the road. They posted a 67-52 victory over Mississippi Valley State on Wednesday. Muhammed Ahmed led the way with a season-best 15 points off the bench to go along with a game-high nine rebounds in that win over MVSU. But despite the final score, it was far from a complete game for the Mean Green, who shot just 46.4 percent from the floor and committed 20 turnovers. They also missed 10- of-20 free throws. Collin Voss was the teams only other player in double figures, finishing with 10 points and eight boards as North Texas had a 49-35 rebounding advantage for the game.
