MINNEAPOLIS -- Lose by a little or win by a lot: thats been the story for the Minnesota Timberwolves this season. Theres still time to move past their spats and struggles make the playoffs for the first time in 10 years, and this was a forward step. Nikola Pekovic scored 26 points in 27 minutes and the Timberwolves blew off some steam with a 119-92 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday. "We just need to have one good streak and then were right back where we need to be," said Kevin Love, who had 19 points and 14 rebounds and rested for most of the fourth quarter. Kevin Martin added 19 points, and Minnesotas bench had 20 points before Charlottes reserves even got on the board late in the second quarter. "Im happy when we play hard, when we play to the end," said Pekovic, who also stifled former Timberwolves big man Al Jefferson on the defensive end. Anthony Tolliver led the Bobcats with 21 points on 5-for-5 shooting from 3-point range, and Chris Douglas-Roberts scored 16 points. Jefferson finished with only eight points and seven rebounds, though, and the Bobcats were outrebounded 54-33 on their way to their seventh loss in eight games. "Basically just kicked our butts," Jefferson said. The Timberwolves lost on Wednesday 104-103 to Phoenix to fall to 0-10 in games decided by four points or fewer. The tension lingered into the locker room where Love, who was critical recently of a particularly paltry output by the reserves, ripped J.J. Barea and Dante Cunningham for their disinterested body language at the end of the bench. By midway through the second quarter, though, all the frustration had faded away. "We did a good job of letting the other night go. We forgot about that already. Now were back winning, so weve just got to keep it going," Barea said. The Wolves posted their league-leading eighth win of 20 points or more. Theyre also 8-2 following those losses of four points or less. "They want to be a good team, but they have to find out how theyre going to do that," said coach Rick Adelman, who remained critical of some defensive risks and forced shots, mistakes that have contributed to the close losses. Love set the tone with a commanding start, posting his league-leading 31st double-double before halftime. Then the backups put together one of their sharpest stretches of the season. With Chase Budinger and Ronny Turiaf finally healthy, the second unit is much stronger. The highlight came when Cunningham blocked Kemba Walkers fast-break layup, Barea grabbed the ball, and Alexey Shved caught his outlet pass for an uncontested dunk for a 45-34 lead. That came near the end of a 20-6 run by the Wolves. Pekovic then scored 13 straight points for the Wolves in one third-quarter, and Martin followed with a layup to push the lead to a game-high 88-57. "If we can do it consistently, this teams going to be great," Barea said. The Bobcats (15-22) entered the game still above the cut in the Eastern playoff chase, seeking just the second appearance in the franchises 10 seasons. Too many more performances like this, though, and theyll have a hard time keeping up even in the far weaker of the two conferences. For a team that went an NBA-worst 28-120 over the last two seasons, there has been clear progress under first-year coach Steve Clifford. But the Bobcats, who had allowed the second-fewest points in the league entering the night, have taken a step back on defence lately. "You have to have a team game thats together where everybody knows what your game is, then understand that and they play it. We were doing that three weeks ago. Were not doing that right now," Clifford said. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will give them a boost soon. He missed his 18th straight game because of a broken left hand, but plan is for him to practice on Monday and play on Tuesday against New York. NOTES: This was the first time in nearly two years the Wolves had no injured players on the roster. Luc Mbah a Moute returned from a three-game absence due to a strained left groin and played in the fourth quarter. ... The Bobcats fell to 3-11 against Western Conference teams this season. ... Jefferson wasnt the only former Timberwolves player the Bobcats brought. Tolliver, who spent two seasons here from 2010-12, went 8 for 9 from the field. "Whenever youre getting blown out by 30 or 20 or whatever, if youre shooting really well it doesnt matter," he said.

Newport Gwent Dragons hope Saturdays European Challenge Cup semi-final against Montpellier will be a case of third time lucky. The Dragons have lost both of their previous last-four fixtures in the competition, conceding over 45 points on each occasion.They face a stern test at the Altrad Stadium against the Top 14 heavyweights, who are targeting a domestic and European double, and the departure of Lyn Jones as director of rugby will not have helped the Welsh regions preparations. Throw in the Dragons struggles in the PRO12, where they sit third-bottom after 16 defeats in 20 games, and their chances in the south of France appear bleak, but hooker Elliot Dee says the squad are in confident mood after their fantastic quarter-final win over Gloucester on April 9.I cant wait, its a massive game for us, said the 22-year-old.

Now that droughts over -- and Fielders team is sitting pretty in the AL Central. Fielders two-run shot in the first inning Thursday night sent the Tigers to a 4-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals. Andy Dirks added four hits for Detroit, which leads second-place Cleveland by 6 1/2 games in the division. "Prince produces runs. I dont care how he does it," Tigers manager Jim Leyland said. "Tonight happened to be by way of the home run, but hes a run producer, always has been. Its in the book and itll be in the book at the end of this year." Dirks had two doubles and two singles for the Tigers, who took the opener of this five-game series with third-place Kansas City. The Royals have lost three in a row after a 17-3 stretch that put them in contention for a post-season spot. Kansas City now trails Detroit by 8 1/2 games in the division. The Royals are 5 1/2 behind Oakland in the race for a wild card. Detroits Anibal Sanchez (11-7) allowed a run and seven hits in 7 1-3 innings. Bruce Rondon finished the eighth, and Joaquin Benoit pitched a hitless ninth for his 16th save in 16 chances. Jeremy Guthrie (12-9) allowed four runs and 13 hits in seven innings. Fielder went deep for the first time since July 24, belting a towering drive to right-centre to give Detroit a 2-1 lead. The Tigers scored two more runs in the fifth on RBI singles by Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera. Dirks, batting leadoff because Austin Jackson had the night off, scored twice. It was the second four-hit game of the season for Dirks, who is from Kansas and went to Wichita State. "It felt good. Its hard to explain -- its just one of those feel things," Dirks said. "I could feel the path of the bat as I was swinging. My timing was better and everything just clicks. Your legs work with your hands and different things." The Tigers won despite an atrocious night on the bases. Dirks led off the Detroit third with a double, and then was caught in a rundown when Hunter grounded to the mound. After Dirks was tagged out, the Royals got a double play becausse Hunter had turned too far around first.dddddddddddd In the sixth, Brayan Pena took too much of a turn after hitting a single, and he too was caught off the bag. Kansas City, meanwhile, stole three bases, but the Royals couldnt break through against Sanchez after scoring a run in the first inning. "We had a good scouting report today," Kansas Citys Alex Gordon said. "When youre not hitting doubles and home runs, youve got to make something happen." Gordons RBI single made it 1-0, but Dirks singled to start the bottom of the first, and Fielder went deep for his 18th homer of the season. The Royals had a man on second in the second, a man on third in the fourth and then a man on second again in the fifth. But they were 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position. After a double by Dirks in the fifth, Detroit had men on second and third with one out. Hunter singled to make it 3-1, and Cabreras fly ball to centre dropped in front of Jarrod Dyson for another run. Cabrera, who has been bothered by hip and leg injuries lately, made a nice sliding catch in foul territory near third base on an eighth-inning popup by Gordon. "Hes obviously playing in some pain," Leyland said. "Just a gutty performance, day after day. You know, weve got a lot of guys that go out there all the time -- and I dont want to slight Miggy, because hes been going out there and playing. Theres not too many guys that could do what hes doing, under the circumstances, but weve got a lot of guys that go out there." NOTES: Emilio Bonifacio, acquired by Kansas City on Wednesday in a trade with Toronto, went 1 for 4 with a stolen base. ... A concession stand was closed after a small grease fire about three hours before the first pitch sent smoke high into the air behind the scoreboard in LF, but the situation was under control quickly and hardly anyone on the field at the time seemed to notice. ... Detroit and Kansas City play a doubleheader Friday. The Tigers send RHP Justin Verlander (12-8) to the mound in the opener against Royals LHP Danny Duffy (0-0). Detroit LHP Jose Alvarez (1-2) faces Kansas City RHP James Shields (7-8) in the nightcap.

Leon Draisaitl stands in a unique position. Draisaitl, the Edmonton Oilers No. 3 overall selection who doesnt turn 19 until Oct. 27, is tentatively slotted in the No. 2 position at centre, with only Ryan Nugent-Hopkins ahead of him. Fellow 2014 Canadian team picks Nikolaj Ehlers (Winnipeg) and William Nylander (Toronto) will be watched carefully this fall, but none begins so potentially high in the lineup. TSN.ca is monitoring Draisaitls training camp performance closely, with Edmonton bureau chief Ryan Rishaug filing regular reports. Sunday, Oct. 5 - Making the Grade: The coaching staff made its final round of cuts first thing Sunday morning, and Leon Draisaitl made the grade. Anton Lander, and Jujar Khaira were sent to Oklahoma City, leaving five centres with the team - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Draisaitl, Marc Arcobello, Boyd Gordon and in a surprise move, Will Acton. Draisaitl skated on a line at practice with Benoit Pouliot and Nail Yakapov and looks to be in the lineup for Wednesdays opener against the Flames. He also centered the teams second power play unit. Assessment - There was little doubt that Draisaitl would make the final roster, however, the pace is about to quicken considerably. His biggest challenge comes this week, as he eyes his first regular season game and the ten-game mark ahead signifying hell stay for the entire season. Saturday, Oct. 4 - Edmonton vs Vancouver: Leon Draisaitls final preseason game got off to an ugly start Saturday night. Draisaitl was minus two in less than 1:10 of ice time, the Canucks scoring goals on his first two shifts. Neither were directly his fault, but it was a tough start for he and line mates Anton Lander and Nail Yakapov. In the second period Draisaitl got caught on the ice for over two minutes and was forced to make a bad change due to fatigue, resulting in an odd man rush and a goal for Vancouver. He did display his customary creativity, setting up Nail Yakupov several times for great scoring chances, including a beautiful breakaway pass in the middle frame. He also had several chances to score himself, one off a difficult tip in front of the net. Draisaitl played 16:00 minutes, had a minus one rating and was 3/6 in the faceoff circle. Assessment - A middle of the way performance from Draisaitl in his third game in four nights. His endurance and pacing is clearly being tested by Dallas Eakins, but he continues to generate scoring chances. However some sloppiness has crept into his game perhaps due to fatigue. Draisaitl is still the second best centre in the organization by quite a margin. Friday, Oct. 3 - Day of Rest: Complete day off for the entire team and back on the ice Saturday to face the Canucks. Thursday, Oct. 2 - Edmonton vs. Vancouver: Like a lot of his teammates, Leon Draisaitl looked fatigued playing his second game in as many nights on Thursday. That translated into some sloppy defensive play, and at least one eyebrow raising turnover in his own end. He continues to work hard, and isnt taking shifts off, but his effectiveness came and went all game. He made several nice plays setting up teammates for scoring chances, picked up a second assist, and nearly scored in the third, but had a tough night in the faceoff circle going 3 for 10. He didnt have as much skill on his line to work with (playing with Joensuu and Purcell) and the Canucks had their entire NHL defence dressed. Draisaitl handled himself well against the higher quality competition. Assessment - Didnt stand out as much as in the previous game, but even on an off-night didnt hurt his cause. Wednesday, Oct. 1 - Standout Performance: Despite going pointless, and minus- 2, this was Leon Draisaitls best performance as an Oiler. Skating on a line with Jordan Eberle and David Perron, the trio generated a number of scoring chances and looked dangerous most of the night. He and Eberle playing together for the first time and had immediate chemistry. Early in the second, Draisaitl wowed the crowd toe-dragging a pass around a defender and snapping a quick shot off the cross bar from the high slot. He maintained a good pace to his game, playing a healthy 17:20 minutes -- more than any other forward in the game -- and went 5-6 in the face-off circle. He did give a puck away in his own end that eventually led to a goal against but otherwise was decent defensively. Assessment - Excellent performance, albeit against a watered-down Coyotes lineup. Showed he can generate lots of offence when skating with top players and made a conscious effort to be a shooting threat, not just a passer. Quickly establishing himself as the Oilers second-best centre. Tuesday, Sept. 30 - New Line: Draisaitl found himself with a new look line at practice Tuesday skating alongside David Perron and Jordan Eberle. The trio will play together Wednesday night against the Arizona Coyotes. Draisaitl was decent in his last two games, but feels he has yet to hit full stride. I know that I have to find another level, Draisaitl said after practice Tuesday, but at the same time, I know that Im capable of stepping my game up a little more. Head Coach Dallas Eakins says hes happy with Draisaitl so far, but admits from an evaluation standpoint, the real test is about to come. We all know whats coming next, right? More guys are going to go out the door, and the speed is going to quicken, and theres going to be more (NHL) guys on every team so the next five days for him will be very important. Assessment - Continues to get excellent opportunities to show he can keep up with with elite level skill around him. Wednesday will be his most important test to date. Monday, Sept. 29 - Still Around: Draisaitl survived another round of cuts made following the teams practice Monday. Five players were assigned to Oklahoma City, none of them legitimate threats to take one of the four centre jobs. However, 6 foot 5 Russian Bogdan Yakimov continues to impress and will push Draisaitl, Anton Lander and Marc Arcobello for one of the pivot positions available. Sunday, Sept. 28 - Edmonton vs. Chicago: It was another relatively quiet night for Leon Draisaitl in a 5-0 drubbing by the Blackhawks. Draisaitl was held off the score sheet, but did set up David Perron for what should have been a tap in that missed. He was decent in his own end, made good decisions with the puck, and had a strong night in the face off circle. Centering Perron and Nail Yakapov, Draisaitl did outplay both Anton Lander and Marc Arcobello, two older centres hes battling for a spot. Assessment: He didnt hurt his cause with any glaring errors, but on a night where few Oilers displayed any creativity, Draisaitl missed a chance to really stand out. Friday, Sept. 26 - Day of Rest: Complete day off for the entire team and back on the ice on Saturday. Thursday, Sept. 25 - Back to Practice: Draisaitl remains on a line with Benoit Pouliot and five- foot-nine, 141 pound Russian rookie Vladamir Tkachev who is turning some heads with impressive play. Wednesday, Sept. 24 - Edmonton vs. Winnipeg: Draisaitl took a small step backwards Wednesday night with a mediocre performance in Winnipeg. He looked sluggish right from the start (perhaps due to an endurance test Tuesday) and was lacking the creativity and poise he displayed in the game against Calgary. Draisaitl finished with one shot on net in 15:45 of ice time and won just five of 17 face offs. He also turned the puck over a number of times including in the final minute of a one goal game. Five-on-five he generated little in the way of offence. Day 5 Assessment: Continues to work hard, but below average night at both ends of the ice, was outplayed by fellow youngsters Bogdan Yakimov and Vladamir Tkachev. Tuesday, Sept. 23 - On-ice testing: It was the dreaded RHIET (repeat high intensity endurance test) at camp, but Draisaitl looked strong throughout his six sprints up and down the ice. During the practice portion of the day, he skated on a line with Benoit Pouliot and 5-foot-9, 141 pound winger Russian Vladamir Tkachev. All three are expected to play together Wednesday in Winnipeg - the first game for Draisaitl without offensive winger David Perron on his line. Day 4 Assessment: Draisaitl made it through the endurance test on two feet with all his equipment on and kept up with his group. Thats a good day for any player. Monday, Sept. 22 - Off-day Sunday, Sept. 21 - Edmonton vs. Calgary: Draisaitl made a fantastic play on his first shift, sending a perfect cross ice pass to Marco Roy for the games opening goal. Once again playing on a line with David Perron and Benoit Pouliot, they spent most of the night in the offensive zone, Draisaitl creating several scoring chances with his patience and poise. Draisaitl nearly set up another goal in the second period, forcing a turnover in the offensive corner and finding a defenceman in the high slot who fired wide. Draisaitl saw some time on the penalty kill and the power play, making intelligent plays with the majority of his touches. Defensively he is trying to do the right things, coming back deep into his own zone to help out, and putting himself in good spots for the breakout. He saw time on the power play and penalty kill and made intelligent plays with the majority of his touches. He was 8-5 (62 per cent) in the faceoff circle. Day 3 Assessment: An excellent start to his exhibition season. As the pace around him goes up, Draisaitl is having no trouble elevating his game. Saturday, Sept. 20 - Practice: It was back to work early for Draisaitl at an 8:30am practice conducted by Dallas Eakins. The entire Oiler braintrust, from Kevin Lowe down to the scouting staff, eyeballed the proceedings from their corner perch. Draisaitl continues to look at ease skating on a line with David Perron and Benoit Pouliot. He handled the puck with confidence during line rushes and made sharp tape-to-tape passes. When practice wrapped up, Drasaitl was directed to the faceoff circle by Eakins for faceoff pointers from AHL veteran centre Will Acton. Day 2 Assessment: Overall, a solid day at practice, though Sunday night will be the biggest test yet as he will likely skate in his first NHL exhibition game. Friday, Sept. 19 - First Day On The Ice: Draisaitl made the most of an opportunity to play with NHLers David Perron and Benoit Pouliot in a full speed scrimmage. Draisaitls line scored on the games first shift, again in the second half and was by far the best trio throughout the 3-1 win against a team featuring Mark Arcobello and Anton Lander - two players Draisaitl is battling at centre. Draisaitl showed good speed on a backcheck catching winger Nail Yakupov in a foot race and forcing him wide. He was good, he can distribute the puck, make a play on his forehand and backhand, said head coach Dallas Eakins. He showed some spurts that he does have some speed. There is room for improvement there, but he shows he can do it and he can certainly move the puck, distribute it and he certainly didnt look out of place on the ice. Day 1 Assessment: Overall, it was a good day in which Draisaitl stood out as the best of the centres (No. 1 centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins didnt play).

This weeks topics include the Blue Jays All-Stars plea for help, a supposed soft-toss to Derek Jeter at the Mid-Season Classic and the odds of the MLB returning to Montreal. 1. During the All-Star Break, both Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista and pitcher Mark Buehrle spoke to the media about their hopes that the club adds some players to help with their playoff push. As a GM what impact if any do players comments to the media have on what you do or not do in the trade market? There is peer pressure and then there is veteran star pressure. You think its tough being a teenager? Try being a general manager at trade deadline time when the veterans covet players on other teams. I understand why veterans like Batista and Buerhle want to see upgrades. They arent getting any younger. They see their window of winning closing. In a season when the Red Sox, Yankees and Rays are all at the bottom of the division, the players know this is a year to go for it. The fans recognize this is a year to go for it. The media recognizes this is a year to go for it. Everyone sees this is a time to go for it. General managers are wired to always look for ways to improve the club. Generally, the bigger the better but they know that any incremental improvement can make a difference. Improving the team by acquiring a star player is significant but so too is adding a role player like a reliever or speedy outfielder. Improving the club by one game can be the difference between going to the playoffs or not. General managers tend not to like having additional pressure heaped upon them. The jobs are tough enough. When players call for personnel moves, it empowers the media and fans to do the same thing; columnists write stories, fans call talk radio shows and players look at the GM with longing eyes. On rare occasions, general managers appreciate a nudge from star players, particularly when the owner may be reluctant to expand the payroll budget. Outside pressure impacts owners more than general managers. GMs are wired to do make the best baseball moves possible to help their team win the most number of games over the longest period of time within whatever financial parameters they are given. Alex Anthopoulos isnt stupid. He recognizes that his team needs help. He understands that this is a rare moment in time when the Yanks, Sox and Rays are all sunk. He knows this is the time to go for it. Whether he makes deals or not will come down to: his evaluation of how realistic the Jays chances are of making the playoffs with the move, whether he has the financial flexibility to make it and the cost (player personnel) of the deal. The need calculation is an easy one: if the Jays make improvements to their starting rotation (with two pitchers) they can make the playoffs. The cost is the only issue. Do the Jays have the willingness to part with dollars and prospects to win this year? Anthopoulos is responsible for the decision about the prospects and ownership is responsible for the decision about the money. By far the bigger issue is the money. So here is my advice: if the players, fans and media want to apply pressure apply it to ownership. 2. Adam Wainwright admitted, then retracted the fact that he grooved a pitch to Derek Jeter in his final All-Star Game. What are your thoughts on this, and is it time for the MLB to end the home field advantage element of the Mid-Season Classic? I was the general manager for the Mets at the time MLB made the decision that the All-Star Game would mean something. I got a call from Sandy Alderson, who at the time was working in the Commissioners Office. Sandy said the Commissioner was looking for ways to help our broadcast partner (FOX) improve TV ratings for the game. He wanted to know my feelings about making the game count for home field advantage for the World Series. I told Sandy that I was totally against it. I didnt think that a game that has always been an exhibition should now count for something, especially if it was effectively still going to be managed like an exhibition game. Why should players on a last place team impact whether a team had home field advantage in a series they were not going to participate in at all. Alderson thanked me for my thoughts. He confirmed that my opinion was the same as every other GM he had spoken to. He then said our opinions didnt really matter because the Commissioner was moving forward with connecting home field advantage for the World Series to winning the All-Star Game anyway. This isnt going to change. My opinion hasnt changed about it but I have come to accept that the game “means something.” Adam Wainwright told us he intentionally “piped” a pitch to Derek Jeter. He confirmed it in the questions asked immediately after his unsolicited proclamation. Only later, when he felt the disgust of the masses, did he claim to have “mis-said” his approach with Jeter. Every time I hear that clip it reminds me of Roger Clemens claim that Andy Pettitte mis-remembered how Clemens shared his steroid use. From this point on I will always be skeptical when a player puts “mis-“ in front of anything. Wainwright made multiple mistakes. Firstly, he should not have grooved a pitch for Jeter. The All-Star Game means something, therefore, anything less than complete effort compromises the integrity of the game. It is not fair to his teammates that he did that. Second, Wainwright should never have admitted publicly what he had done. It diminishes Jeters accomplishment of getting a hit against him. It sounds like an excuse for giving up the hit. Plus, he made it all about himself and not Derek Jeter or the other players. Third, he should not have done the interview later in the game with Erin Andrews, FOXs dugout reporter, and denied his earlier statements. His claims that his humor was misunderstood, just arent true. In listening to his earlier interview he clearly states a fact about piping the pitch to Jeter. Plus blaming social media for the controversy is ridiculous. The responses on social media were only a response to what he said. Adam Wainwright seems like a good guy. He clearly made a few mistakes at the All-Star Game. He just needs to own his side of the street. Take responsibility for the mistakes. Dont treat the rest of us like we are stupid. Take it from an expert at making mistakes; it is much easier when you just say: “I messed up.” 3. Bud Selig suggested this week that Montreal was a great baseball market and might be a considered it viable option in the future. Do you believe that? I believe Bud Selig means what he says. I think he believes what he says as well. Montreal will be among a list of cities in consideration if baseball were to ever expand or have relocation needs. Montreal haas proven itself as a more than viable baseball market in the past.dddddddddddd Clearly, a new stadium would have to be part of the consideration. The fact that there is a team in Washington now after past failed attempts is a sign that baseball is willing to go back to the well if it is the right thing to do. Here is the problem. Bud Seligs tenure as Commissioner is coming to an end in January 2015. So his opinion is only that. It just doesnt hold any weight. It may give false hope to fans unnecessarily. Bud Selig will have no say in whether baseball ever returns to Montreal. The Commissioner also stated that Pete Rose, who is under lifetime suspension from MLB, could play a role in the 2015 All-Star Game. That is nice of him to say but he really doesnt have that authority, as he will be retired when it takes place. I am a fan of the Commissioner. I think he is a Hall-of-Famer. Under his leadership revenues have grown exponentially. New stadiums have been built everywhere they need them. Interleague play and the Wild Card have been great successes. The second Wild Card team is a great idea and the addition of replay challenges has advanced the game. He has had unparalleled peace with the Players Association and under his leadership baseball has the most stringent drug testing program in all of professional sports. But lets remember that Buds days are numbered and his thoughts about 2015 and beyond are exactly the same as yours and mine. They have no juice. No pun intended. Bold Predictions As we head into the second half of the season there is so much that can and will happen. I want to have some fun with Bold Predictions for the trade deadline and the final results of the season. TRADE DEADLINE This is going to be a very active trade deadline. A general manager could end up being the most valuable “player” in baseball. One or two big moves can separate teams in the playoff chase. Here are some Bold Predictions for where players will end up being traded: David Price will be traded from Tampa Bay to St Louis: The Cards have enough impact prospects to give the Rays what they want. This will give the Cards a playoff rotation of Wainwright, Price and Wacha (if his shoulder heals) which would be the best in baseball. Ben Zobrist will be traded from the Rays to the Reds: Zobrists versatility and offensive production fit the Reds perfectly as Zach Cozart has struggled terribly this year and Brandon Phillips is injured. Marlon Byrd will be traded from the Phillies to the Mariners: Byrd will give the Mariners the right-handed power bat they need behind Robinson Cano. Joaquin Benoit will be traded by the Padres and make a return to the Detroit Tigers: He adds length to the Tigers pen and protects them if Joe Nathan struggles as he has at times this season. Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon will be traded to the San Francisco Giants: Giants GM Brian Sabean is one of the best at fortifying the bullpen on the fly. The Giants will need that as they have little margin for error. Twins All-Star catcher Kurt Suzuki will be moved to the St Louis Cardinals to replace the injured Yadier Molina: Suzuki has Cards written all over him especially with his character and leadership qualities. Chase Headley and Ian Kennedy of the Padres will both end up in New York with the Yankees: Headley will try to stabilize the lack of production at 3B and Kennedy will try to do the same to the disabled starting rotation. The Red Sox will waive the white flag on the season and trade Mike Napoli to the Royals: Kansas City needs leadership and power. Plus Napoli will bring his patient offensive approach to an underperforming lineup. The Phillies A.J. Burnett will return to Toronto as the Jays go for a guy they know from the past: Anthopoulos brought back to Gibbons to manage and now he will bring back Burnett to deepen the rotation. The Chicago Cubs will trade Starlin Castro to the New York Mets for Zack Wheeler: With the emergence of rookie Jacob deGrom in the rotation the Mets use the inconsistent Wheeler to get the shortstop they desperately need. The Pirates will acquire Houston Street from the Padres to fill the gaping hole at the end of the game: The Grilli-for-Frieri deal didnt quite work out for the Pirates. Street is a reasonably priced solution. Jimmy Rollins will waive his 10/5 rights and accept a trade to the Brewers: Milwaukee makes the move for protection as Jean Segura has struggled on the field and now is struggling off the field with the death of his infant son. PLAYOFFS: Jays: My prediction for the Blue Jays is that Alex Anthopoulos will try hard to upgrade his team. He will make a deal to get Burnett and maybe another small piece here or there. Good news is the Jays will finish in second in the division. The bad news is they wont win enough to be a Wild Card team. Too much inconsistency in the starting rotation will be their ultimate downfall. The Jays offence will not be able to score enough to overcome the lack of pitching. Too many injuries on the offensive side make it difficult to do so. Others: Jays fans wont be the only disappointed fans at the end of the season as it will not end with the same division leaders and Wild Card leaders as we have now. Here is how it will change: The teams that are not currently in the playoffs but who will make the playoffs are both in the NL Central. I predict the Cardinals to win the division and the Reds to be a Wild Card team. That means that despite the nice first half the Brewers will fade in the second half. I believe the Nats will pull away in the NL East. They have a ton of talent that will come together under first year manager Matt Williams. The Braves and Giants will come down to the final weekend fighting for the second Wild Card spot. The Giants will beat the Padres while the Braves struggle with the Phils. The Giants get the playoff berth. AL Division Winners/Wild Card AL East: Baltimore Orioles AL Central: Detroit Tigers AL West: Oakland As AL Wild Card #1: LA Angels AL Wild Card #2: Seattle Mariners NL Division Winners/Wild Card NL East: Washington Nationals NL Central: St Louis Cardinals NL West: LA Dodgers NL Wild Card #1: Cincinnati Reds NL Wild Card #2: San Francisco Giants End of Year Awards NL Cy Young: Clayton Kershaw, LA Dodgers NL MVP: Troy Tulowitzki, Colorado Rockies NL Rookie of the Year: Billy Hamilton, Cincinnati Reds NL Manager of the Year: Mike Matheny, St Louis Cardinals AL Cy Young: Felix Hernandez, Seattle Mariners AL MVP: Mike Trout, LA Angels AL Rookie of the Year: Jose Abreu, Chicago White Sox AL Manager of the Year: Lloyd McClendon, Seattle Mariners The second half of the season is set to be exciting as we have 17 teams within four games of a playoff spot. Hold on tight. Here we go!

DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Ricky Romero is headed back to the minors. One day after being shelled by the Detroit Tigers, the former Opening Day starter and fellow pitcher Marcus Stroman were sent to the Blue Jays minor league camp. Toronto manager John Gibbons said both pitchers needed more work. Gibbons tried to soften the blow for Romero, saying the 29-year-old left-hander had pitched well earlier in the spring and was moving in the right direction after two troubled seasons. "We really like what he did this camp," Gibbons told reporters Wednesday prior to a Grapefruit League game against the Philadelphia Phillies. "Just go down there and polish it up." Stroman, a 2012 first-round draft choice who pitched in Class-AA last season, managed just one out in Tuesdays 18-4 loss to the Detroit Tigers. The 22-year-old right-hander gave up seven runs on six hits. "He was kind of the odd man out," said Gibbons. "He had trouble throwing strikes (Tuesday). Hes got to do that." Romero, who is due to make US$7.75 million this season, walked five and threw two wild pitches in 2 2/3 innings. Unofficially he threw 57 pitches, 23 for strikes. Gibbons said Romero needs to do "whatever it takes" to throw strikes. He was an all-star in 2011 when he went 15-11 with a 2.92 earned-run average. In 2012, he slumped to 9-14 with a 5.77 ERA and things got worse in 2013, when he saw action in just four games in the majors with an 0-2 record and 11.05 ERA. He spent most of last season in the minors where he went 5-8 with 5.52 ERA. "Its a long road. You never know if a guys going to make it back from that or not," said Gibbons. "But he was starting to show the signs of it. (Tuesday) he wasnt as good and it just kind of reaffirmed, Hey start him down there, but hes moving in the right direction." Romero had been a feel-good story earlier in spring training. Gibbons called him "the big talk of camp" last week after giving up one run in seven innings for an ERA of 1.29 in three appearances. But Romero fell back to earth Tuesday in Lakeland. He gave up three runs on three hits with five walks, a hit batsman and two wild pitches. "Weve taken too many steps forward to dwell on this," Romero said philosophically afterwards. Somewhat bizarrely, he referred to a "weird weather day" in noting "the balls were a little slick and just kept coming out of my hand." It was a sunny 20-degree day at Joker Marchant Stadium. Romero has been positive this spring, making an effort to stay in the moment rather than labour in the past or worry about the future. A lot of people have been rooting for him to succeed, including his manager. "We feel for the guy," said Gibbons. "Its not just looking at results. As much work as the kids putting in, things like that -- the battles hes going through, mentally -- you root for him. You root for him extra hard. "But were encouraged. Were positive after this camp. He may look at it differently but we feel positive with what he accomplished this spring." Romero had left the clubhouse by the time the announcement was made. Gibbons said the pitcher was disappointed at the news. "And rightfully so. I cant blame him for that, but hopefully he feels good about how this spring went." Despite the positive signs, Gibbons said he always saw Romero as having an outside shot at making the team. "Personally I thought regardless of the camp he had, it would probably do him some good to start down in the minor leagues in real competition where things are different," he said. "Just to make sure hes back to where he needs to be. "Because you dont want him to come up and if hes not ready to start the season, backslides and he may never regroup. So that was kind of my thinking. But that wasnt everybodys opinion. If he proved he was ready in spring training, he might have been the guy." NOTES -- Gibbons said closer Casey Janssen felt "great" after a throwing on the mound Tuesday and will go again Friday. Hes slated to make three or four appearances before the season starts March 31 in Tampa. Janssen has been limited in action to protect against shoulder soreness. Dodgers Alex Wood Jersey .

Dodgers Yasiel Puig Jersey .C. - Phoenix Suns coach Jeff Hornacek says guard Goran Dragic will return to the starting lineup against the Charlotte Hornets after missing the last two games with a strained back.LOS ANGELES - As practice wrapped up at the Lakers facility in L.A. on Thursday, Terrence Ross hung around to work on his aerial acrobatics with the assistance of teammate DeMar DeRozan. DeRozan threw the Raptors sophomore and reigning NBA Slam Dunk champion lobs off the side of the backboard, he tossed bounce passes and threw alley-oops. Ross experimented with a variation of finishes. As it turns out, they could both use the practice. The Raptors duo will take part in State Farm All-Star Saturday Night - taking place in New Orleans on Feb. 15 - as Ross returns to defend his title in the Sprite Slam Dunk competition and DeRozan will make an unexpected appearance in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge. After edging out Jeremy Evans to win last years contest in Houston, Ross will have his work cut out for him this time around. For the first time since 1988, three all-stars - Pacers forward Paul George, Wizards guard John Wall and Blazers guard Damian Lillard - will compete in the event. Rounding out the field is Warriors forward Harrison Barnes and Kings rookie guard Ben McLemore. "Everybodys kind of a threat," Ross said of this years competition. "Its going to be fun, everybody wants to win." What will Ross do for an encore? The 23-year-old says hes still searching for ideas, scouring YouTube, Twitter and even using video games to brainstorm. "Everybodys done everything," he continued. "I dont know, its like how many times can you do the same dunk before people get tired of it? So its hard to find new dunks but at the same time you always find something a little different." The one thing he could say with certainty is he will not be using props. While Ross has expected to defend his crown since last season, DeRozans debut in the Skills Challenge comes as a surprise, even to him. "I kind of got peer pressure into doing it," said the first-time all-star, who will also be assisting Ross in the dunk-off. DeRozan initially declined the invitation but his agent twisted his arm and eventually he came around. "I changed my mind. I said Ill try it, why not." "I thought it would be fun," he said of the event, which is usually exclusive for point guardss but DeRozan hopes to start a new era of shooting guards entering and conquering the ball handling/passing obstacle course.dddddddddddd "Everybody doesnt get a chance to be a part of All-Star Weekend and the big thing for me is to go out there and have fun. I think it will be cool to go out there and represent my team as much as I can and you never know, I might mess around and win it." Along with DeRozan, the participants will consists of Lillard, Goran Dragic, Reggie Jackson and rookies Giannis Antetokounmpo, Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo and Trey Burke. DeRozan, who has previously competed in the Slam Dunk contest on two separate occasions, will be the first Raptor to appear in the Skills Challenge. Although he wouldnt tip his hand, his strategy centres on speed over precision. "I look at it like, a lot of players go out there and try to do it cool," said the fifth-year guard. "I always used to say, you can go a little faster. So Ive got my whole mindset to try and win it." The format in both events will be tweaked this season. The Skills Challenge will feature four teams of two players each competing in a two-round timed relay-style course. The fastest team from each conference will advance to the second and final round, where the winning pair will be crowned. The Dunk Contest participants will also compete in teams, divided by conference. The competition will tip off with a "freestyle round" where the dunkers for each the East and the West will have 90 seconds to showcase as many dunks as they choose. At the conclusion of the opening round, the panel of judges will vote for a winning conference. The winning conference will decide whether its competitors will dunk first or second in the following round, a head-to-head "battle round". In the battle round dunkers from opposing conferences will face off against each other, with the judges choosing a winner in each battle. The first team to win three battles will win the competition. Fans will then vote on the "Dunker of the Night" from the winning team. Ross is the fifth Raptor to participate in the event, joining DeRozan, Vince Carter, Tracy McGrady and Jamario Moon.

CHICAGO -- Pau Gasol talked to Joakim Noah when the Chicago Bulls travelled to Los Angeles to recruit the free-agent centre. He spoke with Derrick Rose over the phone, and Mike Dunleavy also reached out to the 7-foot veteran. What Gasol found was a hungry team in search of a championship, and it was enough to convince the skilled Spaniard to trade the warmth of Southern California for the cold winters of the Windy City. Gasol and newcomer Nikola Mirotic were at the United Center on Friday for a pair of press conferences announcing their new contracts. The 34-year-old Gasol begins his 14th NBA season with career averages of 18.3 points, 9.2 rebounds and 3.3 assists, and the 6-10 Mirotic joins the Bulls after a successful final season with Real Madrid. "It was a gut feeling. I thought Chicago was going to be the best fit for me," Gasol said. "Its a great challenge, but Im driven by challenge. I look forward to it." Gasol began his career with Memphis and was traded to Los Angeles in February 2008. He formed a strong bond with Kobe Bryant while helping the Lakers to three consecutive NBA Finals from 2008-10, winning the title the last two of those years. Weighing interest from NBA champion San Antonio and Oklahoma City among other teams, Gasol said his conversations with Noah and Rose helped sway him to Chicago. Noah was the leagues defensive player of the year last season, and Rose is coming back from a pair of knee injuries which kept the 2011 MVP out for much of the last two seasons. "How humble they were, I think thats real important to be able to not have big egos, that makes things a lot easier," Gasol said. "Their passion, their hunger as well. Theyre hungry. Theyre hungry to win, thats something that I wanted to also come into, to be a part of a hungry team." Rose played only 10 games last season before he was shelved for the year by a torn meniscus in his right knee. Chicago still managed to win 48 games and make the playoffs, where it lost to Washington in the first round. Rose is expected to return this season, and the addition of Gasol and Mirotic should give Chicago one of the deepest frontcourts in the league. Noah set career highs with 12.6 points, 11.3 and 5.4 assists per game last year, and Taj Gibson blossomed into one of the leagues top reserves. The Bulls used the amnesty clause to cut Carlos Boozer on Tuesday, leaving an opening in the starting lineup. But coach Tom Thibodeau isnt sure what the lineup is going to look like just yet. "I dont know how its going to unfold," he said, "you know, who will be the starter, whos finishing? Maybe we change as we go. Were going to see once we get everyone out there together. Were always going to do whats best for the team." Gasol, a Barcelona native, also should be able to help with Mirotics transition to the NBA. The 23-year-old Mirotic, who was acquired in a 2011 draft-night deal with Minnesota, averaged 12.4 points while shooting 46 per cent from 3-point range last season with Real Madrid. Mirotic, a stretch power forward who has drawn comparisons to sharpshooters Hedo Turkoglu and Ryan Anderson, was believed to be one of the top players in the world outside of the NBA. "I strongly believe that I am ready for this challenge," Mirotic said through an interpreter. Gasol, Mirotic and first-round draft pick Doug McDermott address one of Chicagos biggest problems from a year ago. The Bulls had the NBAs top defence last season, allowing 91.8 points per game, but they also averaged a league-low 93.7 points. "I think weve added shooting. Of course, getting Derrick back is a huge piece," Thibodeau said. "So it depends how it all fits together. We wont know until we get out there."

Tournament co-host England was 20 seconds from reaching the final until Kiwis halfback Shaun Johnson slipped his counterpart Kevin Sinfield and wrong-footed last defender George Burgess to dive across the line and make it 18-18. Johnson held his nerve to slot the conversion, his fourth goal of the game, and punched the air before he was swamped by teammates. "We always back ourselves if theres enough time on the clock," Kiwis coach Stephen Kearney said. "We were fortunate." The Kiwis will defend the title in the final against favourite Australia next Saturday at Old Trafford. The Kangaroos, who have played in every final since 1957, demolished Fiji 64-0 to repeat the semifinal results from the last cup in 2008. Jarryd Hayne, who played for Fiji in the 2008 semi, scored three of Australias 11 tries against his old team. The classy Australians didnt concede a point for a third straight game, and have conceded only 22 in five matches. "Weve got a bit of pride in our defence the last few weeks," said Johnathan Thurston, who scored 10 goals and a try against Fiji. He said revenge wont be the priority in the final against the Kiwis, who shocked the Kangaroos in Brisbane in the 2008 climax. "We wont be going in there with that attitude," Thurston said. "Well be worrying about ourselves, preparing the right way. The Kiwis are a great side, its going to be a tough night for us but were looking forward to it." The first semifinal of the Wembley doubleheader, which drew about 70,000, grew into an epic from the opening kickoff. England soaked up intense Kiwis pressure, then led 8-0 before the defending champs tied the score by halftime. New Zealand went ahead 14-8, but England came back to retake the lead at 18-14 with 13 minutes to go. England was close to putting the match away, but the Kiwis were given life in the last minute by a penalty from a high tackle on Sonny Bill Williams by George Burgess. And the individual brilliancce of the Kiwis trumped Englands best team effort in years.dddddddddddd "Were bitterly, bitterly disappointed," England coach Steve McNamara said. "Its a very cruel way to finish." England barely survived a New Zealand onslaught in the first dozen minutes, when the Kiwis were denied three tries by remarkable defence. When the English turned the pressure back on the Kiwis, the forwards delivered their first try. James Graham fed Sam Burgess, who sliced through two tackles and offloaded in another for Sean OLoughlin to go over. Sinfield converted and added a penalty for 8-0 after 25 minutes. New Zealand finally replied with a try of utter genius. Kieran Foran cross-kicked on the last tackle, and wing Jason Nightingale jumped in the left corner to keep the ball in. The ball was swept right, and Luke threw a huge over-the-top pass that appeared to be bouncing over the right sideline. But Dean Whare caught the ball in mid-air over the sideline and reverse-flicked a pass straight to winger Roger Tuivasa-Scheck, who took advantage of a stunned England to score the converted try. Johnson nailed a 46-meter penalty to tie the score at the break. The Kiwis led for the first time in the 44th when England wing Ryan Hall went to intercept Kiwis fullback Kevin Locke but missed, and Tuivasa-Scheck scored his second try of the match. Johnson couldnt convert but made a second penalty for 14-8. England showed its mettle. Right wing Kallum Watkins caught the Kiwis flat-footed to cut the deficit to two, and Sinfield also delivered the final pass for Sam Burgess go-ahead try. Sinfield converted, and it was 18-14. England had the Kiwis at their mercy twice more, but second-rower Ben Westwood dropped the ball reaching for the tryline, and Hall dropped an intercept. Late penalties kept the Kiwis hopes alive in the last five minutes, and they ended up stopping Englands campaign in the semifinals for a third straight World Cup. "Im pretty devastated," Sinfield said. "The best team lost. To lose in the last 20 seconds is a killer. I dont think by any means we had the game won but I felt we were in control."

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - The captain was a few minutes late, though no one seemed to mind. Russell Wilson is usually worth the wait, and no more than on this day, his final one speaking about the game before he actually plays The Game. Peyton Manning is supposed to be the star of this Super Bowl, but a minor league second baseman who refused to listen to those who said he was too small to play quarterback in the NFL may have something to say about that. Proving people wrong is almost as fun for Wilson as winning football games, and hes done both with great regularity since being drafted with the 75th overall pick two years ago by the Seattle Seahawks. "For all the kids that have been told, no, that they cant do it, or all the kids that will be told no," Wilson said. "Thats one of the reasons that I left playing baseball, to be honest with you. I had this urge to play the game of football, because so many people — I shouldnt say so many, a handful of people — said I couldnt do it. Richard Sherman will be the player most remembered from the win that got Seattle here. But if not for a gutsy play on an equally gutsy call, the Seahawks would not be in position to win their first Super Bowl title. Wilson found Jermaine Kearse in the end zone for the touchdown on a fourth down against San Francisco in the NFC championship game, giving the Seahawks the lead for the first time. It was the kind of play a veteran star like Manning might make when it counts most. The kind of play Wilson prepared for meticulously every day for the past two years. The kind of play that can win a Super Bowl. "I dont think Ive seen too many people have the knack to want be great. He wants to be a great quarterback," receiver Percy Harvin said. "He just doesnt want to be average or All-Pro. He wants to be talked about as a great quarterback and I dont think hes going to stop until he does." By now, Wilsons story is fairly well known. The son of the late Harrison Wilson III — a star athlete at Dartmouth who became a lawyer after briefly thinking of trying out for the NFL in 1977 — he lost a job as starting quarterback at North Carolina State while playing second base in the Colorado Rockies organization. Wilson would give up baseball to star as a graduate student at Wisconsin, leading the Badgers to the Big 10 title and a spot in the Rose Bowl. But he was undersized at 5-foot-11 and languished in the NFL draft before Pete Carroll and the Seahawks took a chance on him for what was expected to be a backup quarterback position. Instead, Carroll called him to the basketball court at the teams complex prior to his rookie season, where Wilson watched him shoot jumpers. "I go outside and he said, You want to shoot? " Wilson said. "Then he said, We want you to know youre going to be the starting quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, hopefully for a long time. "That put a huge smile on my face. I immediately thought of my mom and dad and all the things theyve done for me and all the discipline they gave me." That discipline is evident in the way Wilson approaches his job as both the quarterback and leader of his team. Like all quarterbacks he watches film, but Wilson is constantly studying situations and is relentless about fixing mistakes. "He makes everyone around him almost a perfectionist because we pick up off that and the habits that he has," said receiver Ricardo Lockette. "He is always the first one there in the morning and the last one to leave." Those habits helped propel the Seahawks to an 11-5 record last season behind their rookie QB. They beat the Washington Redskins in the first round of the playoffs, then lost a shootout to Atlanta that had Wilson down in the dumps — if only for a moment. By the time he was in the tunnel going back to the locker room he had already begun thinking what he had to do in the off-season to get the Seahawks over the hump this year. "I want to change the game and theres a difference between being good and being great and changing the game," Wilson said. "Guys like Peyton Manning change the game in terms of the way he thinks and in terms of the way he processes things. Tom Brady is the same way, hes so clutch that people fear him. One day I want to evolve to that." Wilson can take a big step in that direction should he join an elite group of quarterbacks (Brady, Kurt Warner and Ben Roethlisberger) who have won a Super Bowl in just their second year. Hes certainly not overwhelmed by the moment, and seems to embrace the challenge, even when it comes to answering the same questions over and over during the pregame buildup. A great believer in visualization, he already sees himself on the field at the Meadowlands, is already trying to figure out how to feel when the national anthem is sung and the stadium erupts in flashes for the kickoff. "Then it will be, OK, Im ready to go," Wilson said. If he is, there may be more than one quarterback star in this Super Bowl. Authentic Seahawks Jerseys For Sale .

Azeez was left completely unmarked in the heart of the area to head home Fernando Sorianos cross four minutes into injury time, provoking a small group of Almeria fans to invade the pitch. Almeria struck first in the 52nd when Aleix Vidal found Oscar Diaz at the far post, but Jesus "Suso" Fernandez saw a direct red card for a dangerous tackle on Damien Perquis one minute later. Betis ttook the lead through goals by Braian Rodriguez in the 60th and Salva Sevilla in the 71st.dddddddddddd Vidal hit back for Almeria on the break in the 77th before Soriano set up the late winner from Azeez. "They went ahead and when we were about to flop, our character and toughness emerged," Soriano said. "Our fans never give up and that is contagious." Almeria climbed to one point above the relegation zone, pushing Osasuna down to join Valladolid as the other two teams currently in danger to join Betis in the second division next season.

MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester United manager David Moyes says midfielder Anderson will join Fiorentina on loan. The 25-year-old Brazilian player has only made four Premier League appearances for United this season and underwent a medical test in Italy on Friday. Moyes says "weve not been able to get him as many games as hed hoped, or we hoped we might get him, so we feel its a good opportunity for him. "Hes going to a good club in a good league so, hopefully, it will benefit him." Anderson joined United from Porto in 2007 and has since made 104 Premier League appearances. Brian Peters Jersey .

No leaks, no whispers, nothing.NEW YORK, N.Y. - NHL general managers made some progress toward implementing a coachs challenge system, but could not finalize plans to do so at their annual Stanley Cup final meeting. At this point the issue is trying to define what cases would be subject to challenges and how the process would work. Because of that, GMs sounded optimistic something would be agreed on, but there was no certainty about whether it would start next season or in 2015-16. "It would be related to a coachs challenge and so instead of jumping right into it, maybe everybody understands when the coaches are going to challenge," Jim Rutherford of the Pittsburgh Penguins said. "So maybe just try it internally for a year. These are real tough changes so you want to get it right." Coachs challenges and the possibility of expanded video review dominated Wednesdays meeting several blocks from Madison Square Garden on the day of Game 4 of the Cup final. One thing that seemed clear was that goaltender interference would not be part of any such changes because theres so much room for interpretation. "I think Commissioner (Gary) Bettman says it best: You want certainty, you want black-and-white where we can say, This is it and, This is not it," Don Maloney of the Phoenix Coyotes said. "Goals going over the line, thats certainty, black-and-white. When you start talking about goalie interference for example, now you start talking about judgment calls. ... Thats when it gets grey." What coaches might be able to challenge includes goals scored on plays that shouldve been offside, the puck hitting the protective netting, the wrong player getting penalized and the puck going over the glass for a penalty. Rutherford stressed that coachs challenges wont be there next season, while Maloney said he wasnt quite sure if it was too late for that possibility. That just added to the lack of clarity ouut of Wednesdays meeting.dddddddddddd Discussions also centred on cracking down on embellishment, and changing the draft lottery for 2015-16 and beyond to be more like the NBAs that allows the first three picks to be attainable. Any draft-lottery changes would not go into effect until 2016, leaving the much-anticipated Connor McDavid and Jack Eichel 2015 event subject to the same system there is now. GMs gave their approval on those competition committee recommendations, including allowing a more liberal definition of kicked-in goals, expanding the trapezoid, doing a dry scrape of the ice and changing ends before overtime, and making some faceoff changes. Consensus wasnt so clear on expanded video review out of Torontos situation room or coachs challenges. One problem is the possibility of delaying games, which Major League Baseball is dealing with in its first season with replay beyond home runs. "We dont want games to be 3 hours long, 3 1/2 hours long," Maloney said. "I find myself going to football games with the stoppages there, I really cant stand it." One thing GMs did seem to agree on is the desire to have more correct calls. "Thats all were concerned about: making sure we get it right," Dale Tallon of the Florida Panthers said. "And then if we do further reviews, weve got to make sure that when we do the reviews, its black and white. Theres still a lot of grey areas in all of this stuff." The discussion will continue. The NHLs board of governors convenes later in June and must approve any changes along with the NHLPA executive committee. "Were on the right track. We just have to make sure what were doing is giving us the results we expect," Maloney said. "The coachs challenge, expanding video replay — those are the big topics right now and were still searching for ways to help the game, not hurt it."

TORONTO -- Jonathan Bernier tried to stretch at every opportunity. Tuesday night marked the Toronto Maple Leafs starting goaltenders first game back after missing five straight with a groin injury. Bernier managed to get through it despite facing 48 shots in a 5-3 loss to the St. Louis Blues. "A lot of work. But I felt OK," Bernier said. "It was a little sore obviously, but I was just trying to get it loose a little bit in between whistles and timeouts." Bernier aggravated the groin injury March 13 in the first period in Los Angeles. James Reimer relieved him and beat the Kings, then lost five straight starts. With the Leafs season looking like it was going off the rails after three straight losses, Bernier pushed himself too hard at Fridays practice with the hope of returning for the weekend. A setback at that point delayed his return. By Monday, Bernier felt better but needed Tuesdays morning skate to know for sure. When he experienced no soreness, the decision was made to start against the Blues. Asked if he wouldve done the same in the 10th game of the season and did not rush back, Bernier responded: "Ah, I mean you always want to be back as soon as possible." Bernier said he would be able to play back-to-back games moving forward. The Leafs visit the Philadelphia Flyers on Friday night before returning home to face the Detroit Red Wings on Saturday night. The process of managing this groin injury, the first of his career, will be an ongoing process. "We got a good staff and obviously a lot of stretching and take care of my body -- lots of rest," Bernier said. Even in a losing effort, the Leafs were glad to get Bernier back because without him they mightve not even been in the game. "He was outstanding in there," winger James van Riemsdyk said. "He made big save after big save for us." Authentic Ron Francis Jersey .com) - The Detroit Pistons and Boston Celtics both entered Wednesday nights game riding lengthy losing streaks.

Mouillierat scored with a forehand-to-backhand deke, and Jaffray showed patience with a toe-drag before scoring top shelf. Paul Postma had a goal and an assist for the IceCaps (27-17-3) while Adam Lowry and Andrew Gordon added a goal apiece. Nick Johnson, Tyler Randell and Alexander Khokhlachev replied for the Bruins (24-18-7). The Bruins opened the scoring through Johnson, who buried a one-time slapshot from the face-off dot 8:18 into the first period during 4-on-4 play. Lowry equalized for the IceCaps, tipping home a Blair Riley slapshot from the point with 1:51 left in the first. Just 3:44 into the second period, Posstma found space in the slot and ripped a wrist-shot hard and low, which deflected off Gordon.dddddddddddd Khokhlachev tied it for the Bruins, beating IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale five-hole with a wrist shot from a wide angle at the 14:16 mark of the second. Postma gave the IceCaps a 3-2 lead with a wrist shot from just inside the blueline that Bruins goalie Malcolm Subban misplayed with his glove with 1:08 remaining in the second. At the 6:32 mark of the third period, St. Johns turned the puck over on its blue line while on the power play and Randell scored backhand, low blocker on a partial breakaway. Pasquale made 30 saves for St. Johns. Subban stopped 29 shots for Providence. The IceCaps went 1 for 6 on the power play while the Bruins failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

LA QUINTA, Calif. -- Zach Johnson asked his short-iron approach on the par-4 18th to "Do something right, baby." It did. With just a hint of a draw, Johnsons shot landed to the right of the right-side pin and spun to 2 feet to set up a birdie Thursday that left him two strokes behind first-round leader Patrick Reed in the Humana Challenge. Thriving on great driving, even better wedge play and putting, Johnson has three worldwide wins in his last seven starts. He began the run in the BMW Championship in September, and beat Tiger Woods in a playoff in December in the World Challenge after holing a wedge for par on the final hole of regulation. Johnson followed that with a victory two weeks ago in Kapalua. "I dont think Im the best," Johnson said when asked if hes the best wedge player. He pointed to Ryder Cup teammate Steve Stricker. "Hes the first one that comes to my mind," Johnson said. "Phenomenal wedge player. ... But my wedges are clean. ... Ive worked on it a lot. Ive worked on it in a number of different ways, but the main way is really just trying to dial in yardages and trajectories." Johnson finished with a 7-under 65, hitting all 14 fairways at La Quinta Country Club -- the most-demanding driving layout in the three-course event. He hit 15 of 18 greens in regulation and had 27 putts in his bogey-free round. "The greens over there are, I dont even know how to explain them, its like carpet," Johnson said. "I mean, theyre just so good. I dont know what they do over there, but they look artificial. Theyre like this every year, but theyre as good as Ive ever seen." Johnson has 11 PGA Tour victories. Dating to his rookie season in 2004, only Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh have more. "It means that Im doing something right," said Johnson, the top-ranked player in the field at No. 6. Reed had a 9-under 63 in perfect scoring and weather conditions. He ran off five straight birdies in the middle of his bogey-free round on PGA Wests Arnold Palmer Private Course and tied his career low. "The course is in perfect shape," said Reed, the Wyndham Championship winner in August. "The rough isnt very high, the fairways are perfect and the greens are rolling very true." Reed started on the back nine and birdied Nos. 16-18 and 1-2 to get to 7-under. He added birdies on Nos. 6 and 7. "I started out a little struggling with the driver, had some lefts in it, but luckily I missed it in the right spots," Reed said. "I was really confident with my irons, kept hitting greens and all of a sudden, 10-, 12-, 15-, 20-foot putts started going in." With wife Justine pregnant with their first child, her brother, Kessler Karain, is subbing as Reeds caddie. Justine has walked every hole with her husband this year and plans to rejoin him inside the ropes after the baby girl arrives. The due date is Memorial Day. "We cant wait for that," Reed said. "Im excited to be a dad." Ryan Palmer, Justin Hicks, Daniel Summerhays and Charley Hoffman shot 64. Palmer birdied his final six holes and nine of his last 12 on the Palmer course, the site of the final round Sunday. "I wasnt making a whole lot of long putts, just hitting it close," Palmer said. Hicks had an eagle, seven birdies and a bogey on the Jack Nicklaus Private Course. "Just trying to give myself as many opportunities as I can," Hicks said. Hoffman, the 2007 winner, had an eagle and six birdies at La Quinta. "I love this golf course," Hoffman said. "I think this is probably one of the better tracks we play all year when its said and done." Summerhays birdied seven of his last 10 on the Nicklaus course. "Its fun to make birdies," Summerhays said. "Thats one of the fun things about this tournament is that the courses are a little easier. Theyre in perfect shape, which makes them almost even easier." With a high temperature in the mid-80s and only a gentle morning breeze off the Santa Rosa Mountains, the players averaged 69.692 on the Palmer course, 69.431 on the Nicklaus layout, and 70.192 at La Quinta. Ottawas Brad Fritsch carded a 67 at the Palmer course. David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., also on Palmer, had a 68. Calgarys Stephen Ames and Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont., each shot a 73 on the Palmer course. Keegan Bradley opened with a 69 at La Quinta in his first start of the year. Hes fighting a cold and struggled with his distance control and accuracy. "Im still a little tired. Getting better every day," said Bradley, paired with Johnson the first three days. "Im happy with todays round for the first round of the year." Defending champion Brian Gay also had a 69 at La Quinta.

Logan was six. The two boys are on the ice in their hockey equipment, and matching blue jerseys, standing side by side with their backs to the camera. Alton is wearing No. 19. Logan, No. 72.Alton wears 19 because that was my number, and I thought Logan would want 19 as well. But he chose 72, all on his own. . . 1972, Henderson said, smiling at his grandsons cleverness.The 71-year-old cherishes the days spent with his grandchildren. For a while, it seemed there wouldnt be many more. Diagnosed with chronic lymphocytic leukemia in November of 2009, the Canadian hockey heros health was in a free fall two years ago when he entered a clinical drug trial in the U.S. He calls it a game-changer.When you go into a clinical trial, youre flipping the coin: is this going to work? Or is it going to kill us? said Henderson, himself a legendary game-changer.Henderson will forever be known for scoring the winning goal in the final three games of the 1972 Summit Series against the mighty Soviet Union, at the height of the Cold War. The last of his goals clinched Canadas 6-5 victory in the final, making him a national hero back home. It was later voted the sports moment of the century.But as Henderson pointed out, nobody gets a wrinkle-free life.Hendersons came in the form of CLL, a cancer of the blood and bone marrow. He said no to chemotherapy after his diagnosis, instead trying to battle it through diet and exercise.I knew my body. My body has never done well with drugs. The only option I had was chemotherapy, and I thought that would probably kill me anyway. And your quality of life goes, it attacks everything else, he said. So I spent all kinds of money on supplements, and vitamins and doing this, doing that, working out with trainers. We were hoping to beat it from the inside out. We spent two years desperately trying to find an alternative. But it just kept going.By the time Henderson travelled, with fingers crossed, to Bethesda, Md., to begin the clinical drug trial, he was in rough shape. He was down 25 pounds from the 180 hes rigorously maintained since his 20s.And my cheeks were out to here, he said, pulling the skin on his cheeks out wide. I had a growth the size of a grapefruit in my stomach, and 83 per cent of my bone marrow was malignant.Henderson is one of four Canadians in the U.S. clinical trial of Ibrutinib, which was approved this week for use in Canada.Sitting in his Mississauga, Ont., home Wednesday morning, Henderson talked about whats been like a new lease on life. He has regained the weight, and during an almost-hour long interview, helped moved furniture for a photo shoot.The best was about six months in, Eleanor says That damn stuff youre on, theres got to be Botox in it. She says You look better now than you have in years. She says Im going on it, he said, with a laugh.Henderson proudly showed off the photos of his seven grandchildren that line the shelves of his warm country-style living room. He hasnt been to a Toronto Maple Leafs game in years, he said, but hes been to hundreds of his grandsons games.Im an encourager, I dont say very much, he said, on his hockey grandparenting style. I just say You go out there and you just give it your best shot every shift youre out there and youll feel good about yourself when the game is over. You dont have to win every game. Youve got to go have fun, and the best way to have fun is to go give it your best shot every time.Theyre both competitors and Im very, very proud of them. Theyre just super little guys.Most mornings Henderson, who became a Chrisstian in 1975, wakes up 90 minutes earlier than his wife Eleanor.ddddddddddddHe spends that time reading the Bible. Hes memorized thousands of passages. Nights are spent with his wife of 52 years watching TV. The Voice and Dancing With the Stars are two of their favourites.They work out together up to five days a week in their basement gym, that has a stationary bike, a treadmill, a Power Plate machine — a high-tech piece of equipment that uses vibration technology — and weights.I do a lot of stretching now. Do a lot of core work, a lot of crunching and that kind of stuff. Its good for my golf game, Henderson said. Ive always enjoyed working out. I just love getting a sweat on. Always have and always will. Never been out of shape.Ive never been over 185 pounds in my life, I get to 185, I fast, he continued. So very, very conscious about that. But its good. My dad died very young, he was a big huge man and he didnt take care of himself, and so my genes are not that good. I know if I dont take care of myself, that I probably wouldnt be around here. Both (Eleanor and I) are within a couple of pounds of when we got married 52 years ago.The clinical drug trial hasnt been easy. The beginning had him travel to the U.S. every two weeks. Then it was once a month, and now he goes every three months. Doctors draw 17 vials of blood each time, for 63 different tests. When I first went down there, there were only 10 (tests) that were normal. Now, theres only eight that are not normal, he said. My red and white cells are normal, my platelets are back. We were hoping it would get rid of it entirely, but it hasnt done that. I still have cancer. There is still cancer in my system. But its holding it at bay.So hopefully we can hold it at bay until we can find a cure. But my quality of life is. . . , well, just look at me. . . 27 months ago, I was going one way or another. And we all knew it.Henderson has been a motivational speaker for the past 30 years. These days, his speaking engagements are geared toward fundraising for cancer research. He will also happily pick up the phone when other cancer sufferers call. And they do.I tell them, Dont give up. Take the initiative and be pro-active. Get yourself in shape. And everybodys body is different and so what works for one person may not work for another, so youve got to be responsible and pro-active, he said. And dont waste a day worrying. We only have today anyways, and you might as well live it to the best of your ability. Ive always been an encourager. I enjoy encouraging people to just go for the roses. Learned a lot of life lessons, especially in 72. Life is tough, and never give up. And I find even in the worst times, if you look around you can always find people 10 times worse off than you are. And so it puts it in perspective.Henderson has watched recently as time has taken some of hockeys biggest heroes. Pat Quinn died on Nov. 23 at the age of 71. Montreal Canadiens legend Jean Beliveau died Tuesday at 83.He was such a classy individual, Henderson said of Beliveau. I remember thinking to myself Thats the kind of man I want to be, in terms of a husband, a father. Man, he lived his life well, a celebration. . . And Pat Quinn, theres another guy that absolutely lived his life well, and everybody respected him as a person.Can you imagine what kind of country wed have if everyone lived that way? You could close up your jails. . . You need role models, and they were two good ones.I played with them, we were just kids back then. But time flies when youre having fun, he added with a wide smile. Every day I get up is a good day. As long as Im here, its a good one.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version said Beliveau died on Monday.
