Pirazzi made an obscene arm gesture as he crossed the finish line and was reduced to tears following his win. "It wasnt a nice gesture, Im sorry, forgive me," Pirazzi said. "But its been five years of anger, five years of criticism. As the days went by, my moral was going down. I was here to get this victory finally, that was the target. "I was unleashing all that. Five years of criticism is a lot for a young guy. I really had to deal with a lot. Today I reached a goal that I wanted since I was a young boy watching the Giro. Im very happy. Ill enjoy it and never forget this moment." Pirazzi, who had led from the breakaway, made his move with little more than a kilometre remaining and edged out Tim Wellens and Jay McCarthy in a sprint at the end of the 204-kilometre (127-mile) stage from Sarnonico to Vittorio Veneto. The peloton crossed the line 15:36 behind Pirazzi as the top overall standings were unchanged. Quintana remained 1:41 ahead of fellow Colombian Rigoberto Uran and 3:21 ahead of Cadel Evans, with Pierre Rolland only five seconds further back. Victorias Ryder Hesjedal, the 2012 Giro champion, finished 33rd in Wednesdays stage and was in ninth overall, 4:16 back of Quintana. Svein Tuft of Langley, B.C., was in 158th after finishing 144th in stage 17. Quintana had moved into pink after Tuesdays tough leg, which was marrred by confusion after some teams believed part of the route had been neutralized -- meaning the times for that section wouldnt count. Dan Feeney Jersey. "In reality there is no controversy," Quintana said. "I know what happened. Theyre creating a story which isnt there. "It would be unjust (if they took time away from me). The organization said the race wasnt neutralized so why remove an advantage that I won?" The peloton remained together for almost half the route before a group of 26 riders managed to get away. After the previous tough stage -- where the cyclists had to deal not only with both the legendary Gavia and Stelvio climbs, but with snow and rain as well -- the peloton was happy to keep a steady pace and let the escape go. The best-placed rider in the break was Damiano Cunego, who was more than 48 minutes behind Quintana, and so the pink jersey group allowed the gap to go out to more than 12 minutes. Thomas De Gendt attacked from the breakaway on the approach to the last of three classified climbs, the ascent up the Muro di Ca del Poggio. Pirazzi followed and caught the Belgian cyclist near the summit, and they were soon joined by Wellens, McCarthy and Matteo Montaguti. There were attacks off the chasing group but the quintets advantage continued to grow and it swiftly became apparent they would not be caught before the finish. The Giro returns to the mountains in Thursdays 18th stage, a 171km (106-mile) leg from Belluno, with a summit finish up to Rifugio Panarotta. The race ends on Sunday in Trieste. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

BERLIN -- Defending champion Bayern Munich ground out a hard-fought 2-0 win over Nuremberg to maintain its winning start to the Bundesliga on Saturday. Ben Gedeon Womens Jersey . Franck Ribery met Philipp Lahms cross with a fine header to break the deadlock in the 69th, and Arjen Robben sealed the result when he eluded three defenders and scored through the goalkeepers legs in the 78th. Bayern toiled to break down the Nuremberg defence, however, in what was the 187th derby between the sides. "Nine points from three games. Everythings wonderful," Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said. Schalkes poor season start continued with a 2-1 loss at Hannover, where the visitors finished with nine players and the hosts 10. "Three games and only one point is definitely not we expect at Schalke," said the teams under-pressure coach Jens Keller. Bayer Leverkusen beat Borussia Moenchengladbach 4-2 to win eight Bundesliga games in a row for the first time. Freiburg drew 3-3 at Hoffenheim, where three players and the Freiburg coach were sent off. Wolfsburg midfielder Luiz Gustavo was sent off in a 2-0 defeat at Mainz, with Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting and Nicolai Mueller scoring for the home side. Later on the day the Bundesliga celebrated its 50th anniversary, Hertha Berlin defeated Hamburger SV 1-0 to increase the pressure on visiting coach Thorsten Fink. "HSV would be a lot better if people calmed down a bit," Fink said after the game. Colombia forward Adrian Ramos scored in the 74th, stroking the ball in from close range after Nico Schulz burst into the Hamburg penalty area to set him up. Hertha withstood the visitors desperate efforts for an equalizer to ensure the clubs best start to a Bundesliga season. "It was a very close, exciting game, tight to the end. We had the luck to score the decisive goal," Hertha coach Jos Luhukay said. Bayern coach Pep Guardiola opted to hand Mario Goetze his competitive debut for the side, with fellow off-season signing Thiago Alcantara also starting. Despite claiming three-quarters of the games possession and outshooting the visitors 25-5, Bayern lacked the cutting edge to turn chances into goals. "The defeat is merited. But we fought brilliantly and showed great spirit," Nuremberg coach Michael Wiesinger said. His team came closest to scoring in the first half when Daniel Ginczeks fierce effort crashed back off the crossbar in front of the goal line in the 15th. David Alaba had the chance to score from the penalty spot in the 33rd -- after Robben fell theatrically in a tussle for the ball with Per Nilsson -- but Raphael Schaefer saved the Bayern defenders weak effort. Bayern striker Mario Mandzukic was fortunate to avoid a red card for a dangerous challenge on Berkay Dabanli before the break. Schaefer pulled off several great saves, denying Mandzukic on the hour and then Goetze shortly afterward. Ribery scored one minute after Goetze made way for Toni Kroos, prompting a wave of relief around the stadium. The Frenchman was shown a yellow card for taking off his jersey while celebrating his first header in 54 Bundesliga goals. "That was strange," Ribery said with a grin. "Strange but super." Robben also scored an unusual goal, scoring with his right foot for just the third time in 47 Bundesliga goals. "It was an important win. Im satisfied, especially with the second half and the way we controlled the game," said Guardiola, whose side has now gone a club-record 28 league games without defeat. Schalke faced an uphill battle at Hannover when captain Benedikt Hoewedes was sent off for conceding a penalty on Mame Diouf in the 14th. Szabolcs Huszti duly scored from the spot, and the Hungarian crossed for Diouf to score with a header in the 42nd. Adam Szalai pulled one back in the 55th but it proved to be a consolation. There was still time for Huszti to be sent off for a raised foot in the 74th, and Schalke defender Christian Fuchs to earn his second yellow in the 85th. In Leverkusen, Stefan Kiesslings 23rd-minute penalty put the home side ahead, five minutes before he pulled the ball back for Sidney Sam to make it 2-0. Martin Stranzl and Juan Arango pulled Gladbach level with two goals within three minutes. But Sam grabbed his second on the hour mark, and then set up Gonzalo Castro to seal the result in the 72nd. "We lost our concentration for 10 minutes and Gladbach were back in the game. The reaction after that was very good," Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia said. Hoffenheim striker Sejad Salihovic was sent off after scoring his sides first goal from a penalty. TV replays showed the Bosnian slapped Julian Schusters face as the Freiburg midfielder tried to recover the ball. Freiburgs Francis Coquelin received two yellow cards in as many minutes before the break, when Christian Streich was sent to the stands for protesting, and Freiburgs Admir Mehmedi received a straight red card in the final minute. Pat Elflein Vikings Jersey . Rasmussen didnt have a decision during his four appearances in May, when he gave up two hits and no runs in two innings. Toronto used five relievers while pulling off the second-biggest comeback in franchise history on Friday night, rallying from an 8-0 deficit to a 14-9 win. Ben Gedeon Youth Jersey . The Oilers will try to get back in the win column on Monday when they continue a four-game road trip with a battle against the Buffalo Sabres. Edmonton won its third straight game last Wednesday against visiting San Jose, beating the Sharks 3-0 as Scrivens stopped 59 shots to set an NHL record for saves in a regular-season shutout.With Eugenie Bouchards surprising win over No. 12 seed Ana Ivanovic in the second round at Wimbledon, the Montreal native was paid the ultimate compliment from legendary tennis star Martina Navratilova. The 19-year-old Bouchard, currently ranked 66th in the world, was described as "a potential Grand Slam champion" by the nine-time Wimbledon winner following her 6-3, 6-3 victory over of Ivanovic in just over the hour. "That was very impressive," applauded Navratilova in an interview with Kate Battersby of wimbledon.com. "She showed very great composure mentally, rising to the occasion. I like everything – she showed great shot selection and held up well under pressure, she has a technically sound game and she constructs points well. If she continues like this she will be top 20 at least by the end of the year. I dont want to say a star is born but we have seen a potentiaal Grand Slam champion here. Jaleel Johnson Womens Jersey. " Ivanovic also praised Bouchards performance following the match and admitted she was outplayed by a rising star. "Definitely (Bouchard) played a very good match today," Ivanovic said on the tournament website. "It was the first time I actually saw her play, so it was obviously a little bit tough to get used to. "She was tracking the ball really well, serving well. I thought maybe the end of the match she would get tight, but she was really strong the whole way through. "She has a very bright future. She has a very strong game for such a young girl." Bouchard improved to 21-14 this season with Wednesdays victory. The 2012 Wimbledon junior champion has posted some big wins this year, including a third-round victory over U.S. Open winner Samantha Stosur last April at the Family Circle Cup in Charleston, S.C.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

Danny Willett is relishing the opportunity to try and close the gap on Henrik Stenson at the top of the Race to Dubai standings at this week’s Nedbank Golf Challenge. Shaquill Griffin Youth Jersey . The Masters champion led the European Tours order of merit for the majority of the season until a slump in form during recent weeks now leaves him over 252,000 points behind Stenson with two events remaining.Willett finished tied-68th at last weeks Turkish Airlines Open to remain second in the standings, the same position he ended last season behind Rory McIlroy, but remains hopeful of closing the gap to the Swede in South Africa.   Danny Willett has struggled in his last three events since finishing runner-up at the Italian Open in September Me and Henrik have both had fantastic years, both picking up our first major and both had good showings elsewhere around the world, Willett said.Now it boils down to two events where I am back to chasing. Im going to try to make up some ground this week and hopefully try to make up ground next week or fend him off and see how everything goes. Weve both got pretty good track records around this golf course, as well, so it could be interesting.Willett tees off alongside Stenson and Alfred Dunhill Links champion Tyrrell Hatton for the opening round, while home favourite Louis Oosthuizen features with Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Alex Noren. Willett (L) lost top spot when Henrik Stenson (R) finished tied-second at the WGC-HSBC Champions Victory for Stenson would see the Open champion claim a second Race to Dubai title if Willett finishes outside the top-10, while a win for Willett would guarantee him top spot heading into next weeks season finale.McIlroy could see his hopes of a third successive Race to Dubai crown come to an end this week, with the world No 2 not featuring in South Africa and already trailing Stenson by more than a million points. Henrik Stenson looks ahead to the Nedbank Golf Challenge, where victory could also secure him the Race to Dubai title A top-seven finish for Stenson or a runner-up finish for Willett would be enough to end McIlroys chances of topping the European Tour and PGA Tour money standings in the same year.Watch the Nedbank Golf Challenge throughout the week live on Sky Sports 4 - your home of golf.

Here are three key observations Kristian Jack took away from Arsenals performance. 1. Another slow start for Arsenal away from home at a big club Last season Arsenal conceded four at Anfield, four at Stamford Bridge, two at Goodison and two at the Etihad - all in the first half. Each time post-match, Arsene Wenger talked at length about preparation and mental strength improving in these situations, dealing well with adversity and responding well when they concede. In their first significant test of the new season, they failed once again in these areas. The Gunners started the game brightly. Their defensive line wasnt as high as it has been in games like this in the past and they seemed to have a good balance in attack.  Then Everton scored from a set play and Arsenal crumbled. They lost all momentum in midfield and couldnt generate any serious threats in attack. Everton are a tough side to break down, particularly at home, and no one was expecting the visitors to dominate the match, but their performance in the last 25 minutes of the first half was not good enough.  Another poor start ultimately forced their manager into a change, yet removing Alexis Sanchez seemed strange. Arsenal needed Olivier Giroud as a reference point up top, but they seemed to take off the wrong man. The game opened up more in the second half and Arsenal desperately needed someone with the Chileans creativity to take a hold of it. Thankfully for the Gunners, they had Santi Cazorla on the bench to do exactly that. Had they not started slowly, Arsenal would have won at Goodison. Wenger may feel they still should have won, highlighting the offside goal and Olivier Girouds miss just after half-time, but the French boss must now look at starting his fellow countryman. Many feel he isnt good enough to start for them, but Wenger does not subscribe to this and has always been a fan of his exceptional link-up play. Against Everton, he wanted to start Sanchez to bring a new dimension to their attack and just because it failed, it doesnt mean he shouldnt do it again, but their slow start means Sanchez up top on his own from the start will have to be put on hiatus for now. 2. Arsenal still vulnerable against quick transitions The second goal they conceded was offside and should never have been allowed to stand, yet it still highlights Arsenals major issue in defending against transitions. Chelsea and Liverpool, in particular, tore the Gunners apart in these areas last season and the moment Per Mertesacker pushed up and lost a gamble on winning the ball, Arsenal were stretched and were easily torn apart on the transition. Full-backs Mathieu Debuchy and Nacho Monreal started their first game together and it showed. There was llittle understanding between the two when they made advancing runs. Shaquill Griffin Jersey. Both were out of position for the goal and, while the Frenchman tracked back, he failed to recognize the run by goalscorer Steven Naismith. Mesut Ozil, once again, had a fine view of the goal as he casually ran back with the ball ahead of him. The German is what he is defensively and shows little appetite for that aspect of his game. He was hardly the main culprit for the second goal, like the first, but Wengers decision to hand him his first start since the World Cup final, out on a flank against Seamus Coleman, looked very naive. 3. Arsenal experience growing pains with their young stars Unlike other title contenders, Arsenal seemed content at allowing young players to develop with them at the highest level. This strategy has many positives, but it does mean consistency will always be a struggle.  At 19-years-old, Calum Chambers wasnt even in the discussion for Englands World Cup squad after just 18 senior appearances at right-back for Southampton. A few months later, he is now starting significant league games for a club like Arsenal at centre-back. Chambers will make mistakes as he matures and had a couple of different moments against the pace of Kevin Mirallas, but overall he showed confidence on the ball, was commanding in the air and read the game very well. His ball out to Aaron Ramsey for the second goal was exceptional. Already Chambers, who will benefit immensely from games alongside Per Mertesacker, looks like a future England regular.  When he does reach that level, he will likely be alongside teammates Jack Wilshere and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in that squad. Wilshere played in a three-man midfield against Everton, alongside Aaron Ramsey and Mathieu Flamini, but had a poor game. When the game is not going his way, there are strong questions that have to be asked about his temperament and he was fortunate to get just a yellow card after an atrocious challenge on Gareth Barry. Wilshere remains a real talent, a player who can ignite attacks from deep, but as the number seven between the two other players, he still struggles to dictate the tempo of a game the way a club like Arsenal needs. Perhaps, his development would blossom once a real number six is brought in alongside him. Just imagine how different Arsenal would be if, for example, Sami Khedira played where Flamini or Mikel Arteta usually does. Oxlade-Chamberlain was bright and has an exceptional ability to find space when not in possession. He is a great talent to play alongside because he always wants the ball and puts himself in areas that others wont go, often moving centrally to combine with the excellent movement of Ozil and Sanchez. Many players at Arsenal can compete for that starting spot on the right, but the 21-year-old deserves more chances in that position.  Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

The West Vancouver, B.C., native was injured during pre-Olympic training, putting her appearance at next months Winter Games in Sochi, Russia in doubt. Steven Hills, Canada Snowboards executive director, couldnt say whether or not the injury was a break or fracture and expected to release further details Wednesday. He added he expects Ricker, the defending world champion, would still be able to compete at the Olympics. "While the timing of this injury is very unfortunate, we know that Maelle is an incredibly resilient athlete that has battled back from several injuries over her career to accomplish great things for Canada," said Hills in a release. &"We hope that Maelles surgery is successful and believe that she will have every opportunity to join Team Canada in Sochi with the goal of competing in the snowboard cross event on February 16. Garett Bolles Womens Jersey.

Ricker returned to the Games in 2006 at Turin, Italy, with the snowboard cross team. But the event ended in a crash during the final that forced her to be airlifted to a hospital. Four years later she made up for the disappointment in Italy with a gold medal in Vancouver. Cheap NFL JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys' ' '

ORCHARD PARK, N. Bobby Orr Bruins Jersey .Y. -- Ralph Wilsons legacy was immortalized in gold on the stadium that bears his name. Fans at a sold-out Ralph Wilson Stadium gave its late namesake a standing ovation Sunday as the Buffalo Bills saluted their founder before the home opener against the Miami Dolphins. Wilson, who died in March, was one of many Bills legends whose names were written in black along the upper bowl of the stadium. Those names have been changed to gold during the $130 million renovation of the stadium this summer. "He was a man of high ideals who set a high standard for himself and those he worked with," said emcee John Murphy, the Bills radio play-by-play broadcaster. Murphy then introduced the teams Hall of Fame quarterback and the fans cheering reached fever pitch. Jim Kelly recently announced he was cancer free after getting treatment for sinus cancer, and the crowd saluted him. The home opener comes at the end of a busy week for Bills fans. They learned that the new owners of the team, pending league approval, will be Terry and Kim Pegula, who will pay an NFL-record $1.4 billion to purchase the team. The Bills future in Buffalo was aided by a lease agreement, signed off by Wilson and approved by NFL owners last year, that included a strict non-relocation clause. That essentially prevented the team from moving before the 2020 season. Earlier Sunday, the Bills held a ribbon-cutting for the refurbished stadium, with the renovations significantly altering the game-day experience. Wilsons widow, Mary, led the ribbon-cutting, with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz and Bills CEO Russ Brandon speaking as well. Wearing her late husbands 1964 AFL championship ring, Wilson saluted Cuomo, Poloncarz and the more than 800 workers who renovated the stadium. "I wish we had a game ball for every one of them," she said. "Each one was so important." The upgrades include new fan-friendly amenities such as larger concessions stands, a sports bar, easier access into the stadium and wider concourses. The key renovations include 3 million feet of linear cable to improve communications and technology in the stadium. There are also two new video boards and 53 more points of entry. "It took real friendship and real commitment and real loyalty to stick with Buffalo in the dark days, and that is the story for Ralph Wilson and Mary Wilson," Cuomo said. "And that is the story of true friendship. Dont tell me whos with you when things are easy. Tell me whos with you when things are tough and when its hard and youre not winning. And thats Ralph Wilson." Phil Esposito Bruins Jersey . The 155th edition of the Plate for Canadian-foaled three-year-olds, the oldest continuously run stakes race in North America, will be televised live on TSN in HD (High Definition) in a special presentation from 4:30 – 6:00 pm ET. Post time is 5:38 pm. Riley Nash Bruins Jersey .

Last Thursday night, we saw the rejuvenation of the previously dormant Ottawa Rough Riders transitioned into the Ottawa Redblacks and, in the most simple of terms, it felt good . Mookie Betts Red Sox Jersey . I put little value in trying to make accurate evaluations by watching exhibition games, so this first regular season game spoke to the truth and reality of how good this football organization could be and how the future may unfold. My biggest observation is they looked confident and organized. To go on the road and put up 21 points says that, but even as the game progressed the Redblacks did not look or act like an expansion team . The first quarter was awesome, but the next three quarters were not so awesome and thats to be expected. For Ottawa to really compete for 18 games, the young guys , about 20 on the present roster, have to play with maturity and as much polish as the old guys do. And the old guys have to remain young, athletically and enthusiastically, throughout the season. I saw that in bursts in different points of the game. Nolan MacMillan, #66 out of the University of Iowa and the Redblacks first-ever draft pick played like he had veteran experience in his first CFL game . As a right tackle, you never know what you have until the pads go on and Ottawa has a right tackle to depend on for years to follow - a young guy playing like an older one. Henry Burris still has it. He moves well when he has to, displays confident energy and can make all the throws at 39, especially the deep wide side ou,t which is always open. For an old guy, and he is, Henry looked like a young guy last Thursday night. For the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, their 36-28 over Ottawa on Thursday was a more impressive victory than their Week 1 win over Toronto, 45-21 . In that game, up 24-0, the pressure is much less then against Ottawa being down 14-0 at one point and 21-7 at another . Drew Willy basically won the game by putting a five-play drive together with five minutes to play in the fourth and by connecting with Aaron Kelly to extend the lead. I am mildly surprised how calm and together Mike OShea looks on the sidelines. Maybe I shouldnt be given preparation reputation, but he looks like his ability to separate emotion from analytical thought is a natural quality. Punt returner Desmond Washington is a talent that I didnt notice until he scored a return TD. Now, I see it. In BC, the most important person in the entire organization is the offensive line coach Dan Dorazio. Somehow, he has to get the best out of a group of five players up front that has two first-year starters on the left side and a second-year starter at centre. Dorazio has been coaching for over 40 years and 12 straight with BC . He is not only one of the best in CFL football, but one of the best in North America . His value to the organization is at an all-time high as BC is not going to win unless Kevin Glen gets quality time in the pocket. Youth in the secondary is a concern, as is youth in quarterback protection . For me, it is the Lions biggest challenge to master over the next 16 games. With Montreal, it is offensive coordinator Ryan Dinwiddie. Somehow, the Alouettes have to develop an explosive downfield passing game and he has to get that from Troy Smith . The seven-to-12-yard passes I saw over and over are not going to take Montreal to the Grey Cup come November 30th. They need "chunk" plays of 20 yards or more. I am a big fan of Smith, a guy who is bright, articulate and a winner and who played much better this week, but you sure notice the absence of Anthony Calvillo and his downfield throwing ability. The present combination of new offensive coordinator and new quarterback have to find that skill and develop it ASAP. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have one of the oddest quarterback dilemmas I have seen, maybe ever . All three - Zach Collaros, Dan LeFevour and Jeremiah Masoli - did some spectacular things in the 24-28 loss at Edmonton, but also the complete opposite at any given point during their personal playing time. This is a tough evaluation on who really is the best quarterback and, depending on Collaross back health, who is the best among the three. Each has a different set of strengths and weaknesses and each can be special one play and anything but special the next. The Ticats are good, but not great and optimism is there that, as September turns to October, as a team they can be great. If I were an Edmonton Eskimos season-ticket holder, I should be sensibly satisfied with the first two weeks. Two wins, yes, but the players are responding to the head coach and playing hard . I was was really impressed with Marcus Howard on one side and Odell Willis on the other as edge pass rushers . Any team that has to play catch-up fourth-quarter football will have urgency issues as one from one side and the other from the other side will create an urgency overload with any quarterback trying to pass play after play. Edmonton looks really good after two games. Finally, trying to figure out the Argonauts 48-15 win over the Roughriders is like trying to figure out the human brain . All your conclusions are speculation based on observation . How the Argos can look so bad one week and so good the next, I really dont know. And maybe even more so, how Saskatchewan can look completely dominant one week and borderline apathetic the next week is also like the human brain - a mystery . I am an immense believer that the most important preparation is that the player must perform the morning of the game and make the conscious effort to get yourself emotionally ready to play. This will increase your personal focus and determination to individually play not good football, but exceptional football . The Argos did it and had it, the Riders didnt and did not . What an amazing difference from one week to the next. Good for Calgary, as there will be not complacency in their Saturday game at Toronto. Tough for BC, as there is no way the Riders will not respond on the same night in the second game. This all makes for interesting football as Week 3 begins.David Ortiz Jersey .com) - James Harden had 32 points, including a tying layup late in regulation, and the Houston Rockets scored eight of their 13 points in overtime at the foul line to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 117-111 on Friday night. Andrew Benintendi Red Sox Jersey . Neither player was available Saturday for the Knicks 107-98 loss in Atlanta. "Were going in a different direction and weve got to figure out another spot or two for our ballclub," coach Mike Woodson said before the game. NEW YORK -- If Martin St. Louis wasnt a fan favourite during his first two months with the New York Rangers, he certainly became one during a very emotional weekend. St. Louis came to New York in March in a deal in which popular team captain Ryan Callahan was shipped to Tampa Bay. When he didnt light up the scoreboard right away, the Madison Square Garden crowd was slow to warm to him. That all changed Sunday night. Three days after the sudden death of his mother, St. Louis scored 3:34 in, and the Rangers avoided elimination for the second straight game by beating the Pittsburgh Penguins 3-1. Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series is Tuesday in Pittsburgh. New York advanced in the first round with a Game 7 win over Philadelphia. St. Louis rejoined his teammates for Game 5 in Pittsburgh on Friday, after a quick trip to Montreal to be with his family. That dedication inspired his teammates during a 5-1 win and carried over to Sunday. "Its probably one of the cooler things Ive been a part of in my professional career," said Derek Stepan, who earned the first assist on St. Louis goal. "The emotion on that goal is something that I will never forget." Fans were already chanting "Mar-ty, Mar-ty" on his first shift. The cheers got louder after he scored. St. Louis, the first star of the game, patted his heart when he came out to an ovation from the crowd. "Mothers Day, my dad is here, my sister is here," St. Louis said. "Its been a tough time for my whole family. To be able to get the lead in the first period, it was a good one." But not the prettiest of goals. St. Louis got in good position in front of the net. Stepan swiped at the puck in traffic and knocked it off St. Louis right leg and into the net. "I got a pretty good bounce," St. Louis said. "I know (my mother) helped me through this. Its a great win by the guys." Carl Hagelin pushed the Rangers lead to 2-0 just 2:51 later, and Henrik Lundqvist stopped 36 shots to keep Pittsburgh at bay. Derick Brassard made it 3-1 in the second period. Brandon Sutter scored the lone goal for the Penguins, who got 26 saves from Marc-Andre Fleury. The Penguins, who led the series 3-1, failed in their first attempt to advance to the Eastern Conference finals with a 5-1 home loss on Friday. Now the pressure has shifted to them, and frustration is showing. Pittsburgh captain Sidney Crosby took a penalty at the end of the second period that gave the Rangers a power play to start the third. Several scrums also broke out -- including one after the final buzzer. "With a minute left in the game, emotions run high," Crosby said. "I dont think thats why we lost. We put ourselves in a bad position eearly. Carlton Fisk Jersey. We fought hard and tried to get back, but you cant continue to do that in the playoffs. You cant start like that." The team that has scored first has won every game. Under coach Dan Bylsma, the Penguins are 1-7 at home when having a chance to clinch a series. Overall, the Penguins are 2-6 in Game 7s in Pittsburgh. On the flip side, the Rangers are 9-2 in their past 11 games when facing elimination, dating to Game 6 of the first round in 2012 at Ottawa. New York has never won a series it trailed 3-1 and has never beaten the Penguins in the playoffs. Buoyed by another early lead, the Rangers pressed for more, and got it on Hagelins unassisted goal at 6:25. Hagelins initial shot attempt from the left-wing boards was blocked by defenceman Rob Scuderi. Hagelin got to the loose puck in the centre of the left circle and sent a hard backhand sailing past Fleury for his fourth of the post-season. Bylsma burned his lone timeout to try to calm his team that was being outshot 7-2. Pittsburgh reversed that trend and cut its deficit in half before the end of the first. The Penguins started to gain momentum after they killed a roughing penalty against Jussi Jokinen and then received their first power play after Chris Kreider knocked down Jokinen at the edge of the crease with 8:40 left in the period. New York had built its shots edge to 12-3, but then helped the Penguins make the score 2-1. Sutter flung the puck toward the net, and it appeared to hit Rangers defenceman John Moore and then bounce in off the foot of defenceman Kevin Klein near the left post with 3:04 left. Lundqvist was clearly agitated by the late goal by Pittsburgh, which led 15-14 in shots in the first period. The teams both had chances in the middle period, and neither could connect on a pair of power plays. Pittsburgh twice challenged Lundqvist with short-handed breakaways, and the Rangers had a goal waved off at 5:55 when Kreider was called for goalie interference after he was shoved from behind into Fleury by Kris Letang. The Rangers made it 3-1 with 4:30 remaining in the period -- 25 seconds after Mats Zuccarello finished serving a tripping penalty. Brassard lunged, knocked the puck out of the air, and scored his third goal in two games and fourth in the series. Benoit Pouliot earned an assist, giving the line of Pouliot, Brassard, and Zuccarello 12 goals and 15 assists in 10 games -- regular season and playoffs -- against Pittsburgh. NOTES: The Penguins dropped to 9-3 at the Garden in the playoffs and 15-15 overall in Game 6s. ... Lundqvist made his 79th consecutive playoff start, tying Fleury for third place on the NHL list among goalies with one team. ... The Rangers were 0 for 6 on the power play. Pittsburgh was 0 for 4. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

NEW YORK -- Ernesto Frieri has lost his job as Los Angeles Angels closer -- at least for a while. James Conner Steelers Jersey . Angels manager Mike Scioscia says setup man Joe Smith will step into the stopper role until Frieri works out his problems beginning Friday night when the Angels play the New York Yankees. "We want to get Ernie off of that treadmill and let him get an inning or two where he can try to make some adjustments," Scioscia said. "Historically, Ernie has responded well to this. We need him, and I think this is the best route to take to get to the final solution we want." The move comes two days after Frieri allowed four runs and three hits while failing to protect a lead for the Angels in a loss at Washington. It was his second blown save this season in four chances. Frieri is 0-2 with a 9.35 ERA in 10 appearances this year. Hes allowed five home runs, a problem that plagued him last season when he was tagged for 11 homers and briefly lost the closer job. Scioscia said Frieri will be used at less stressful times, not in setup situations. The eighth-inning role will be filled by matchups. "To put him in setup role right now would defeat the purpose, because youre going to put him in a high-leverage situation," Scioscia said. "If youre ready for the eighth inning, youre ready for the ninth." "Mechanically hes fine," Scioscia said. "At times hes overthrowing, and when he does, hes missing some spots. Hes not a fine control guy, but he definitely knows what area he wants to throw the ball, and hes usually pretty good at getting it there." Smith signed a $15.75 million, three-year contract with the Angels this winter. In his eighth season, the 30-year-old right-hander is 1-0 with a 3.60 ERA, but 10 of his 11 appearances have been scoreless. He has three career saves in 450 games with the Mets, Indians and Angels. T. J. Watt Youth Jersey .com) - Australian Open champion Li Na, former Wimbledon winner Petra Kvitova and former world No. Cameron Sutton Womens Jersey .TV Series: Duck Dynasty. LOS ANGELES -- Tyler Toffoli and Tanner Pearson are among the few Los Angeles Kings who dont have a Stanley Cup ring from two years ago. Jeff Carter is grateful the youngsters are carrying him along on their own Cup chase after their line came up with another monster game against the Chicago Blackhawks. Carter had a goal and two assists, Toffoli scored the tiebreaking goal late in the second period, and the Kings beat Chicago 4-3 on Saturday night to take a 2-1 lead in the Western Conference finals. Drew Doughty had a third-period goal and an assist, and Jonathan Quick made 24 saves as the Kings returned to Staples Center with an impressive two-way effort against the defending Stanley Cup champions. "Im having so much fun with these guys," said Toffoli, who has scored a goal in every game of the conference finals. "Getting to play with a guy like Carter is a great opportunity, and (Pearson) and me are trying to live up to him." Game 4 is Monday night at Staples Center. Three days after Carter had four points in the third period of Game 2, Los Angeles got another dominant effort from the line centred by the veteran goal-scorer. In a 6:11 span of the second period of Game 3, Carter scored the tying goal off Pearsons pass before setting up the go-ahead score by Toffoli, who has a goal in every game of the conference finals. "They have a lot of chemistry from playing together" in the minors, Carter said. "They use their speed and their skill to create opportunities, and they kind of drag me along with them, so its fun." Toffoli and Pearson still hadnt cracked Los Angeles lineup in 2012 when the eighth-seeded Kings won the title. Toffoli became a regular for last seasons run to the conference finals, while Pearson made his NHL debut in a playoff game last spring. Theyve both become key components of the Kings four-line offensive attack. Slava Voynov also scored an early power-play goal as the Kings moved halfway to their second Stanley Cup final in three years. Captain Jonathan Toews scored twice in the first period for the Blackhawks, but they didnt score again until Patrick Sharps goal with 5 seconds left. Corey Crawford stopped 28 shots for the Blackhawks, who have lost the first road game in 10 consecutive playoff series since 2010. "Once they got the lead, they seemed to get the momentum, and we couldnt quite find our way back into the game," Toews said. "Its up to us to play betteer with those leads. T. J. Watt Steelers Jersey. " Three days after the Kings evened the series by scoring six consecutive goals in the final 22 minutes of Game 2, Los Angeles didnt relax and rely on its NHL-best defence. Neither team played conservatively despite the stakes, instead trading tantalizing scoring chances for the first two periods. The Kings kept pushing for goals even while leading in the third, generating 18 shots and keeping the talented Blackhawks stuck in their own end for long stretches. "We all want to win in here, and Toews is obviously our captain and leader," Chicago defenceman Duncan Keith said. "He definitely led the way tonight, but we need everybody if we are going to beat this team and try to win one here. Toews came out and led the way. Its up to the rest of us to follow that." The Blackhawks beat Los Angeles in five games in the conference finals last season, but the rematch hasnt been nearly as smooth for Chicago. Patrick Kane and Bryan Bickell havent scored a goal in the conference finals, while Sharps last-gasp goal was his first of the series. The Blackhawks had their usual hundreds of red-clad fans in an otherwise black-and-white Staples Center crowd, and Toews put Chicago ahead just 5:26 into Game 3 with a spectacular short-handed goal, stealing the puck from Justin Williams and beating Quick between the legs. After Voynov tied it, Toews connected again later in the period on a rebound. The Kings evened it in the second period when Pearson corralled a puck that hit a referee behind the net and fed it to Carter in front for his eighth goal. Carter then chipped the puck ahead to Toffoli shortly after a Chicago power play ended. Toffoli broke in on Crawford, who lifted his left pad for only an instant -- right when Toffoli pushed the puck under him. The Kings kept up the pressure in the third period, and Doughty scored just his second goal of the post-season shortly after a power play expired in the third period. NOTES: F Andrew Shaw returned to Chicagos lineup after a seven-game injury absence. He took the lineup spot of Peter Regin, who had played the last four games. ... Toews had his first multigoal performance in 63 playoff games since May 7, 2010, when he had a hat trick against Vancouver. ... Guitarist Slash played the national anthem. Wayne Gretzky, Dick Butkus, David Beckham, Eric Stonestreet, Josh Duhamel, Taylor Kitsch and former Kings forward Dustin Penner attended the game. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '

LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland -- Bode Miller wants to continue racing next season at the age of 37, even if this campaign left him disappointed.Tanoh Kpassagnon Chiefs Jersey . A third-place run in a World Cup super-G on Thursday typified Millers season: Fast and crowd-pleasing, but errors cost him victory. "Im frustrated and worn out right now but I think I have more to do in the sport," Miller said. "I definitely am still competitive. If I can keep my body healthy then I think the plan is to race next year." Millers racing skills were clear when he became the oldest-ever Olympic Alpine medallist last month, taking bronze in super-G at Sochi. On a steep and technically demanding slope Thursday, no one was faster than Millers speed check of 101.9 kph (63.3 mph). Still, he came down 0.57 seconds behind surprise winner Alexis Pinturault, with another Frenchman, Thomas Mermillod Blondin, edging him by one-hundredth. "I had probably two and half seconds, three seconds, worth of mistakes, in that run," Miller insisted. "That is the way my season has been. I have had to deal with that." Miller took full responsibility for his race, and a World Cup season that has brought him four podium finishes but no addition to his 33 career victories. "It has been such a frustrating time of so many near-misses and so many really bad, stupid mistakes that I cant blame anyone but myself for," he said. That list includes his top priority races: The classic World Cup downhill at Kitzbuehel, Austria, in January and the Olympic downhill last month. Miller finished third and eighth, respectively, when the best of his skiing was good enough to win, and his practice runs left some racers awe-struck. Here on Wednesday, Millers final downhill performance this season followed the same pattern. He led at the final time split -- 0.30 faster than eventual winner Matthias Mayer of Austria, the Olympic champion -- yet a mistake near the end took him wide into rough snow which slowed him. "These errors arent little bobbles, they are like borderline catastrophic," Miller explained. "(Wednesday) I just got so broken down about halfway down the course I didnt even care anymore. I wanted to stop. I didnt even really tuck through the finish line." Even standing up straight, he still placed eighth just 0.62 back. "I really wanted to change that today just because I think thats not the way to race," Miller acknowledged. "I just wanted to really stay focused to push every hundredth out of it that I could, even though I knew I was going to be out of the course a few times." "I felt good about battling through it," said the veteran racer, who has started a total of 32 World Cup and Olympics events this season after sitting out a year to recover from knee surgery. One incentive for returning strong next season is to race at the Feb. 2-15 world championships in front of home fans at Vail-Beaver Creek, Colorado. Thats for next season, after the current campaign closes with a giant slalom on Saturday. "Right now," Miller said, "I feel like I dont want to see ski boots for a little while." Kareem Hunt Chiefs Jersey . Matt Carkner got back into the Ottawa lineup, and made his presence felt right away by settling his clubs score in a one-sided fight with Rangers forward Brian Boyle. Patrick Mahomes II Jersey.com) - The Minnesota Twins made it official on Wednesday, announcing the signing of outfielder Torii Hunter to a one-year contract. BALTIMORE -- It seemed like every time the Baltimore Orioles were poised to score, the Chicago White Sox would squelch the threat -- two outs at a time. The Orioles hit into four double plays Tuesday night, including the game-ender in a 4-2 defeat. Jose Quintana (4-7) allowed only one run in seven innings for the White Sox, but the left-hander and three relievers benefited greatly from Baltimores lack of clutch hitting. The Orioles stranded seven and went 1 for 9 with runners in scoring position. "We squared up a couple balls early," manager Buck Showalter said. "But there wasnt a lot of good contact off (Quintana). Not real comfortable at-bats." Quintana (4-7) gave up six hits -- including a solo homer by Steve Pearce -- struck out eight and walked three. The left-hander was 0-3 in four starts since May 26. Nick Markakis, who went 0 for 4 against Quintana with two strikeouts, said, "Hes a guy that short arms the ball and the ball jumps out of his hand. It is tough to get in a rhythm when you dont see the ball behind his back and he short arms it with good velocity." One night after blowing a ninth-inning lead in the series opener, White Sox closer Ronald Belisario entered in the ninth with no outs and a runner on first. He allowed a pinch-hit RBI single to Delmon Young before getting pinch-hitter Ryan Flaherty to bounce into a double play. Belisarios eighth save sealed a much-needed victory for the White Sox, who had lost five in a row overall and eight straight on the road. "When you have the opportunity, you have to win those games," Chicago left fielder Alejandro De Aza said. "We have to enjoy it because it doesnt happen very often." Miguel Gonzalez (4-5) yielded three runs and a career-high tying nine hits in five innings for Baltimore. It was his second start since returning from a 17-day stint on the disabled list with a strained right oblique, and like the last one, he failed to get into the sixth inning. "Bent but didnt break. Kept us engaged in the gamme. Kareem Hunt Womens Jersey. . Gave us some chances," Showalter said. "His command was off from what weve come to expect. He fought his way through five innings." Two batters into the game, Gonzalez and the Orioles fell behind for good when Gordon Beckham drove a fastball into the seats in left field for his seventh home run. Chicago added a run in the second when Ramirez doubled and scored on a single by De Aza. The inning ended with a poorly executed double steal in which De Aza was nailed at the plate after getting a late start from third base. Three straight two-out singles, the last by Tyler Flowers, made it 3-0 in the fourth. The White Sox loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth before Alexei Ramirez hit a popup and Dayan Viciedo bounced into a double play. After Pearce homered leading off the sixth, Adam Jones doubled. But Quintana struck out Nelson Cruz and Chris Davis before retiring J.J. Hardy on a fly to right. Chicago got an unearned run in the eighth. Ramirez singled, stole second, advanced on a passed ball and deftly avoided the tag at the plate by Caleb Joseph on a grounder by De Aza. "I have to give him a lane to slide into if I dont have the ball, but as soon as I have the ball Im free to make the tag," Joseph said. "So, I had the ball in plenty of time and just wasnt aggressive with it." NOTES: Orioles 3B Manny Machado will have a hearing Wednesday on his appeal of a five-game suspension for intentionally throwing a bat on the field. ... White Sox manager Robin Ventura says RHP Scott Carroll will start Thursday in Toronto. He replaces Andre Rienzo, who has been relegated to the bullpen after losing five straight starts and yielding 17 runs in his last three outings. ... Baltimore RHP Ubaldo Jimenez, 0-6 with a 6.38 ERA at home, takes the mound Wednesday in the series finale against Chicago RHP Hector Noesi. ... Chicagos Adam Eaton walked twice and singled.

Lexington, KY (SportsNetwork. Marshon Lattimore Youth Jersey .com) - Old Friends, the nonprofit thoroughbred retirement center, has been chosen to receive the Special Eclipse Award for 2014 for its work involving thoroughbreds after their racing careers are over. The honor will be presented during the 44th annual Eclipse Awards on Saturday, Jan. 17 at Gulfstream Park in Hallandale Beach, Florida. Michael Blowen, the former Boston Globe film critic, began Old Friends in 2003 and currently cares for more than 150 rescued and retired horses in Georgetown, Kentucky. This is just unbelievable, Blowen said. We started with one horse just over 10 years ago and now we have 166 retirees. We have several Eclipse Award winners already at the farm; I cant wait to show them mine! It allows us to take other horses that really didnt do as much but deserve a retirement just as well. I want people to come away with really good feelings about the sport of horse racing because I adore it and weve made some inroads in that direction. Last years honoree was Thoroughbred Aftercare Alliance which provides a similar service. The Eclipse Awards are voted on by the NTRA, Daily Racing Form and the National Turf Writers and Broadcasters. Alvin Kamara Youth Jersey . -- The Denver Broncos locked up a shutdown cornerback, only his name wasnt Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie. Marcus Williams Jersey . Napoli beat high-flying Hellas Verona 3-0 to keep up the pressure on the top two while AC Milan had another disappointing night as four goals from teenage forward Domenico Berardi saw relegation-threatened Sassuolo come back from two goals down to win 4-3.DENVER - Jarome Iginla felt a little more youthful on his 37th birthday even as he became the old man of the Colorado Avalanche. Hes energized by the challenge of not only trying to keep up with the likes of speedy forward Nathan MacKinnon, who is half Iginlas age, but also of helping this rising squad take another step in its growth. "I dont want to be arrogant, but I still believe I can be very good," said Iginla, who celebrated his birthday Tuesday by signing a three-year, $16 million deal with Colorado. "And this is a dynamic group. I think they work hard and theyre committed, and theyre just going to keep getting better and better." The Avs are coming off a season in which they tied a franchise record with 52 wins in Patrick Roys first year behind the bench and returned to the post-season for the first time since 2009-10. Among their top priorities in the off-season? Adding some grizzled veterans to the squad. First, the team picked up veteran forward Daniel Briere from Montreal for right wing P.A. Parenteau and a fifth-round pick in next years draft. Then, Colorado acquired defenceman Brad Stuart from the San Jose Sharks for a second-round pick in 2016 and a sixth-rounder in 2017. On Tuesday afternoon, shortly after losing fan favourite Paul Stastny in free agency — he signed a four-year, $28 million deal with division rival St. Louis — the Avs worked out a deal with Iginla. It wasnt a laborious task, especially given the friendship between Iginla and Avalanche Hall of Famer turned executive Joe Sakic. The two have been tight since their days with Team Canada and when Sakic made his pitch, Iginla intently listened. Then again, one of Iginlas kids is named Joe at least in part because of Sakic. "(Sakic) is a winner so it definitely had something to do with this," Iginla said. Iginla has played in 1,310 regular season games with Calgary, Pittsburgh and Boston. He had 30 goals in 78 games for the Bruins last season. "Jaromes track record speaks for itself," Sakic said. "He is one of the top goal scorers of all time, as well as a great leader. His additiion will bolster our offence. Marcus Williams Youth Jersey. " As for being the elder statesman of the team, Iginla just laughed. "I feel good," said Iginla, whos earned two Olympic gold medals with Canada. "As far as my game dropping off, I dont think it will. ... I dont come here expecting to do less." He joins a team that captured a surprise Central Division crown. The turnaround of the Avalanche led to quite a few post-season awards, too, with Roy taking home coach of the year, MacKinnon being named the top rookie and Ryan OReilly capturing the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy for gentlemanly play. Semyon Varlamov also was a finalist for outstanding goaltender, which went to Tuukka Rask of Boston. Sakic was hoping to return the nucleus for another run, but wasnt about to break the bank to make that happen. Sakic said two weeks ago the team had a salary structure in place, setting the financial bar in deals with Varlamov, Matt Duchene and captain Gabriel Landeskog. These days, Sakic is attempting to work out a long-term deal with OReilly, a restricted free agent who led the team with a career-high 28 goals in 2013-14. In the meantime, Sakic orchestrated a deal to add the 34-year-old Stuart in order to bring more tenacity to the Avalanches blue line. He was third on the Sharks in blocked shots (114) and hits (122) last season. Stuart may be called upon to mentor defenceman Nick Holden, who signed a three-year extension that runs through the 2017-18 season. Briere is another scorer who could help offset the loss of Stastny. Iginla likes the additions of Stuart and Briere. "Its kind of neat to join a new team, but also having other guys in the same boat and get to come in together," Iginla said. "Thats pretty cool." One of the enduring images in Avalanche history is Sakic passing the Stanley Cup over to Ray Bourque for him to hoist after their win in 2001. See Landeskog doing the same for Iginla one day? "Thats a hope," Iginla said. "These guys, theyre driven. I think there are lots of good things already happening." ___ AP Hockey Writer Larry Lage contributed. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
