PARIS -- Daniela Hantuchova will face top seed Maria Sharapova in the second round of the Open GDF Suez after beating Marina Erakovic on Tuesday. Fernando Valenzuela Jersey . Hantuchova was leading 6-3, 3-0, and looked set for a straight-sets victory before Erakovic retired without citing a specified reason. Sharapova leads Hantuchova 8-1 in their head-to-heads, with the Slovaks only win against the four-time Grand Slam champion who has won every major when they first played 10 years ago. In other first round matches, there were wins for Frenchwoman Alize Cornet and Yvonne Meusburger of Austria. Cornet laboured past Magdalena Rybarikova of Serbia 6-3, 5-7, 6-2 and Meusburger beat Anna-Lena Friedsam of Germany 7-5, 6-1. Cornet closed out the first set on serve after breaking Rybarikova twice. The Serb struggled on her serve in the second set but Cornet missed chances to break her midway through the set and then twice dropped her own serve. At 6-5 and 30-40 on Cornets serve, Rybarikova broke Cornet again to level the match. But then Cornet broke her twice at the start of the third set to open up a 3-0 lead and regain control. Andres Munoz Jersey . -- Jose Bautista never worries about hitting homers during the regular season. Luis Urias Jersey . Kyle Shanahan was hired as offensive co-ordinator Monday after spending the previous four years in the same role with the Washington Redskins.Dublin farewelled Brian ODriscoll in style last weekend. The great man sweetened the occasion with a magic effort against Italy, tarnished later only by his rendition of Barry Manilows "Copacabana" in the changing room. While it was a fitting celebration of ODriscoll, theres symmetry in him bowing out of international rugby on Saturday in a likely Six Nations title decider in Paris. Thats where he launched himself on the rugby worlds consciousness in 2000 with a hat trick of tries in Irelands first win there over France in 28 years. To that point, he was an Irish star with 10 tests. Marked for great things as a teen with humility masking a ferocious competitiveness, he made his Ireland debut on the 1999 summer tour of Australia at age 20. Man-of-the-match awards in Irelands first two tour games made him a must-pick opposite Wallabies Dan Herbert and Tim Horan. ODriscoll held his own, and again in that years World Cup, where Ireland exited the group stage, embarrassed by Argentina. That was Ireland rugby then, a graveyard of dreams for more than a decade. But ODriscoll gave the side a world-class talent beside hooker Keith Wood, and a back who could create and score tries and return hope and thrills to Lansdowne Road. It took a 50-point hiding from England in the 2000 Six Nations opener for then-coach Warren Gatland to introduce the likes of John Hayes, Simon Easterby, Peter Stringer and Ronan OGara, who became stars of the new millennium as Irelands fortunes prospered. When France was overcome 27-25, Ireland had three wins in the championship for the first time in 15 years. ODriscolls was the first hat trick by an Irish player in the championship in 47 years. "It was lucky that I was in the right place at the right time," he said with a modesty that remains. ODriscoll has gone on to rack up a world record 140 tests, 139 of them starts, a record 132 for Ireland, the most Six Nations matches (64) and tries (26). He captained Ireland for 10 years to 2012 a record 83 times, and has 47 test tries, a record 46 for Ireland. He played in fouur World Cups without success, and only one win from four British and Irish Lions tours. Bip Roberts Jersey. Ireland also has won the Six Nations only once, when he scored tries in four of their wins in the 2009 Grand Slam. A second title beckons on Saturday. The statistics reward lasting class. But his legacy interests him more. ODriscoll woke up to the requirements of being professional during his first Lions tour in 2001, a tour de force for him. Hes responsible for revolutionizing Ireland, said captain Paul OConnell, in the team since 2002. "Hes spread confidence across the whole setup," OConnell said. "I grew up watching Ireland in the 90s and maybe that confidence wasnt there when an Irish team took the field. Any team that takes the field with Brian in it always feels they have a chance of winning. "When Brian finishes, that confidence will remain in the Irish setup, because a few players have moulded themselves on him a little bit and realized this is what you need to be to be the all-round rugby player." The 35-year-old ODriscoll has also remodeled himself. He has only one try since the 2011 World Cup, and no longer accelerates through gaps. But where his leg speed has declined, his mind has only sharpened. Ask Italy, victims last weekend. ODriscolls sleight of hand and awareness set up three of Irelands first four tries. He believes his caps records will be broken, and has been grooming potential successors Robbie Henshaw and Darren Cave. Ireland has an abundance of midfield talent, he said. In giving advice, "Hes been generous to a fault," Ireland coach Joe Schmidt said. Where ODriscoll ranks among the great centres is another debate. Some in Ireland still consider him second to Mike Gibson, who retired in 1979, also after 15 years, as the world caps record-holder. No matter. ODriscolls greatness is set. Hell close a circle on Saturday at Stade de France. There, after that hat trick in the stunning victory in 2000, France coach Bernard Laporte said, "We could not stop him." Only time has. ' ' '

TORONTO - Toronto Raptors forward Patrick Patterson is continuing to heal from a sprained ligament in his right elbow, but there is still no timetable for his return. Jeff Hoffman Jersey . Patterson hasnt played since March 7 when he aggravated an elbow injury. He was diagnosed with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament two days later. The Raptors said Patterson was reassessed Monday and another scan of the elbow revealed that the injury is healing well. He will continue to increase his basketball-related activity, including contact and scrimmages. Patterson is averaging 8.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in 56 games this season for Sacramento and Toronto. He has averaged 9.7 points and 5.2 rebounds in 39 games for the Raptors since being acquired from the Kings on Dec. 9. Stitched Rockies Jerseys . It led to his downfall on Tuesday.

ET, CBSOPENING LINE — Falcons by 3 1/2RECORD VS.PARIS - Paris Saint-Germain could offer new recruit David Luiz something Chelsea couldnt: the near certainty of being a league winner next season. Because, more than ever, PSG is reducing Frances Ligue 1 to a no-contest. While the English Premier League and Spains La Liga were consistently nail-biting, decided only in the last round of matches, PSG made Ligue 1 feel over before Christmas. Its total of 89 points was a record. It topped the league from the 10th round to the last in winning its second consecutive title. Already, next season is shaping up as the same again. As the biggest fish in the small pond of French domestic football, PSG is going to have to succeed in Europe to really prove itself. Even limited by UEFAs Financial Fair Play sanctions, PSGs cash-rich Qatari owners can still comfortably outspend every Ligue 1 team with the exception, perhaps, of Monaco, bankrolled by Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev. Luiz is set to become PSGs fifth signing of €40 million or more. The versatile, attack-minded defender will only strengthen what already this season was again the leagues stingiest defence, conceding just 23 goals. Playing alongside Brazil teammate Thiago Silva, and because theyll be coming off the World Cup together, Luiz should slot smoothly into PSGs backline. The question is not whether PSGs domestic dominance can last, but rather if it can break Lyons record of seven straight league titles from 2002-2008. For the third consecutive season, PSG again had the most prolific attack, scoring 84 goals— 26 of them from Zlatan Ibrahimovic, again the leagues top scorer. "Ligue 1 is continuing to grow with Monaco, Lyon, Marseille. Were raising the level," Ibrahimovic said. Really? That can be argued both ways. While PSGs acquisition of global stars like Ibrahimovic has burnished the Ligue 1 brand, the ease with which he scores, the gulf in class between him and players from other clubs, reflects an unbalanced, top-heavy league with PSG out of reach for French opponents. Dale Murphy Jersey. Coach Laurent Blancs team won only two of its six matches against top-four teams. That highlighted both the fragility of PSG under pressure and its opponents erratic performances during the season. Often unwilling to take risks away from home, conservatively playing for draws, PSGs main rivals facilitated its route to the title. PSGs winning margin over runner-up Monaco was nine points, even more comfortable than its eight-point cushion over Marseille the previous season. In 2012-13, third-place Lyon finished 16 points behind PSG. This time, Lille was 18 points adrift in third. Monaco must now rebuild having sacked coach Claudio Ranieri. While his replacement will need time to adapt, Blanc will be in his second season at PSG. That stability also increases its prospects for a hat-trick of league titles. Rybolovlevs wealth and Monacos tax breaks attracted Colombia striker Radamel Falcao and countryman James Rodriguez, one of the best young wingers in Europe. But its squad remains light compared to PSGs strength in depth built over three years of Qatari ownership. Lyon, funding a new stadium, relies on talent from its youth academy and faces another difficult summer holding onto rising home-grown stars like forward Alexandre Lacazette and France midfielder Clement Grenier. Weak competition isnt necessarily good for PSG. The teams sense of security lulled Blancs players into bad habits at times, especially toward the end of the season when they went off the boil. That can be fatal against Europes top teams. Against Chelsea, PSG failed to protect a two-goal advantage in the return leg of their Champions League quarterfinal. Next season, PSGs stars must respond better when theyre pushed around in Europe or risk being written off as playground bullies in an uncompetitive domestic league. ' ' '

BERLIN -- Hoffenheim defeated Bayer Leverkusen 3-2 in the Bundesliga on Sunday, handing the home side its eighth loss in nine games across all competitions, while Eintracht Frankfurt defeated Nuremberg 5-2 to ease its relegation fears. Nike Vapormax Plus Schweiz . American defender Fabian Johnson crossed for Anthony Modeste to tuck the ball away in the 89th minute for Hoffenheim. The French striker pointed to the net in an apparent reference to the "ghost goal" scored by Stefan Kiessling in the sides last meeting, when the ball went through a hole in the sidenetting. Sead Salihovic put the visitors in front with a penalty in the 14th, after Roberto Hilbert handled in the area. Emir Spahic crossed for Kiessling to equalize with a header in the 39th, but there was an immediate brilliant response from Kevin Volland, who eluded Andres Guardado and lifted the ball over the Leverkusen keeper inside the far post. The home side equalized again through Simon Rolfes, set up by Lars Benders back-heel after Hoffenheim keeper Jens Grahl saved Guardados free kick. Modeste had the final say with his 10th goal of the season to increase the pressure on Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia. Frankfurt earlier handed Nuremberg its fourth straight loss to leave the home side mired in the relegation zone. The visitors scored in the 21st minute when Stefan Aigner blocked Emanuel Pogatetz attempted clearance and crossed for Tranquillo Barnetta to score. Nuremberg was dealt a further blow when defender Ondrej Petrak suffered a suspected broken nose and concussion after receiving Joselus elbow to the face in a challenge. Nuremberg captain Raphael Schaefer suggested Joselu should have been sent off. "Its quite clear. Everyone can see it," the goalkeeper said. "Red card and we would have conceded two goals less." Aigner unselfishly set up Joselu in the 49th, and Alexander Madlung thought hed decided the game with Frankfurts third four minutes after that. "There was only fear in the first half. We played like a relegated team," Nuremberg coach Gertjan Veerbek said. But Josip Drmic scored the goal of the afternoon in the 64th, controlling Jose Campanas cross with his first touch and then firing high to far corner with his next, and Campana reduced the deficit further four minutes later with a shot from distance. Nurembergs revival was ended when Javier Pinola was sent off for bringing down Joselu as the last defender in the 80th. The Spanish striker decided the game on a counterattack in the 88th and set up Vaclav Kadlec for the visitors fifth in injury time. "The way I see it, we were lucky a red card wasnt issued (for Joselu). It would have been very close for us then," Aigner said. The result lifted Frankfurt to 12th, six points clear of Nuremberg and Hamburg in the relegation zone. "I got a sprain from celebrating. Incredible," Frankfurt coach Armin Veh said. Air Max Günstig Bestellen .Bacca took advantage of Cristian Alvarezs hesitation to head a lobbed pass over the goalkeeper and then used his feet to roll the ball into an empty net in the eighth minute.

PETERSBURG, Florida – Its been almost seven years since the Blue Jays last won a series at Tropicana Field.WINNIPEG -- After missing four games with an injured hand, forward Evander Kane is back in the Winnipeg Jets lineup for the first time since Paul Maurice took over as head coach. "I dont think my role changes too much," Kane said Monday, as the team prepared to fly to California for games in Anaheim and San Jose. "Obviously you are going to have to earn your ice time and play well and show him what you can do. Other guys have had three games to show what they can do and this will be my first one so Im going to have to be good." The left-winger has been out since Jan. 7 when he suffered a hand injury in a fight during Winnipegs 4-2 home loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Although hes missed 12 games due to injury this season, Kane still has 14 goals and 11 assists. The Jets (22-23-5) have won three in a row since Maurice took over but are still a point below .500 as they face two of the toughest teams in the Western Conference. Anaheim (37-9-5) leads the conference and the NHL with 79 points and hasnt lost a game in regulation time at home. San Jose is 16-2-3 in their own building. "We had as much success as we could have had this week, we won three games, so well take whatever thats worth," said Maurice. "Im much more concerned that they have confidence in each other in what were trying to accomplish becoming more clearly defined. I feel in practice that Im seeing the things weve asked them to do come a little bit easier." Maurice said Kane will skate on a line with Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler. "I like the possibilities of that line. Id like to think Im going to have some patience with it cause Id like to see it work. At the same time I do have another lineup, Ive got another place as well that I wouldnt mind sseeing him because hes a real strong player and he can be a real benefit to whoever he plays with. Air Max 90 Günstig Bestellen. " While on paper the Jets seem no match for either Anaheim or San Jose, "Ive never felt that on a one game," said Maurice. "Over the course of the season yes, in any one game no, the best is not that far from the bottom and thats why its a competition." Kanes father will also be on the road swing, along with other dads as the team hosts a father-son trip. Wheeler says it feels a lot better heading west with three wins behind them instead of three more losses and some confidence that they are playing the way their new coach wants. "It definitely helps to have that confidence, the way were playing and what were doing," he said. He also said theyve been pretty comfortable from the start with what Maurice has been urging them to do. "I think hes trying to utilize the things we do the best to give ourselves a chance to win. Hes trying to use our team speed, use our size, things that we do well to give us an opportunity to play our best every night." Meanwhile, with Dustin Byfugliens move to forward, rookie defenceman Jacob Trouba is seeing a lot of ice time. "Were not running him against the other teams best all night long," said Maurice, but he added that he feels Trouba can hold his own and needs to learn to compete with the best. "Theres going to be some mistakes, we live with those." Trouba had a pair of goals -- including the overtime winner -- Saturday against the Edmonton Oilers. Trouba is now second among all rookie defencemen in goals with seven this season and trails only Bostons Torey Krug who has 10. In points Trouba sits fifth among rookie defencemen with 16. ' ' '

With trainer Art Sherman in attendance, the Triple Crown contender galloped 2 3/8 miles over Belmonts main track. The chestnut colt had been galloping two miles most mornings. "I thought he looked better now than he did after the Preakness," Sherman said. "I couldnt believe how much weight he put on. He really looks good right now. Going on the Triple Crown trail, its kind of rough. Hes an amazing horse."

Wicked Strong, fourth in the Kentucky Derby, galloped 1 1/2 miles on Belmonts main track Tuesday morning for trainer Jimmy Jerkens. "I galloped him at 7 oclock because I thought it was going to get kind of hot and I didnt want to wait until 9:30 or 10 oclock like we usually do the first day back after working hard," Jerkens said. "Hes doing great. "He had a pretty good excuse in the Derby. His Wood (first in Wood Memorial) was great, and hes trained really well since then. He really is training great. But, you never know until you lead them over there." Saturday should be excellent for the 1 1/2-mile "Test of the Champion." The forecast calls for sunny skies, no chance of rain and a post time temperature of near 80 degrees. ' ' '

"You continue to work as you would with any family member, you continue to work until they leave you no choice," Baalke said Friday in his annual sitdown with media leading up to the draft. "Does character matter? It does." Baalke repeatedly referenced the word "disappointed" during his 59-minute session when discussing a recent list of off-the-field problems for his 49ers, who lost in the NFC championship game to eventual Super Bowl winner Seattle. Regarding a May 3 deadline whether to exercise Smiths 2015 contract option, Baalke gave all indications he hopes to have the menacing pass rusher in a Niners uniform well into the future. Baalke said for 2015, "and 16, and 17 and 18." Smith was arrested April 13 at Los Angeles International Airport. Police say the 24-year-old NFL star was randomly selected for a secondary screening and became unco-operative with the process, telling a TSA agent that he had a bomb. The district attorney has referred the case for misdemeanour consideration. Baalke said Smith is "growing, starting to understand, starting to realize the importance of his own accountability." Yet this follows Smiths five-game absence last season to undergo treatment after his September DUI arrest. In November, Smith pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon, stemming from a June 2012 party at his home. Investigators say several shots were fired, two partygoers were injured and Smith was stabbed. In the subsequent investigation, prosecutors say detectives found five unregistered, illegal weapons in Smiths house, including two Bushmaster rifles and an Armalite AR-10T. When it comes to how to best deal with Smith going forward, Baalke said thats going to be a process. "Thats still being discussed internally," Baalke said. "Everything factors in, you take a look at everything. The one word I can use to describe the situation is disappointing. The important thing is that its equally as disappointing to Aldon. "Like all of us, you have the keys to your own car. You make decisions and you live with the consequences of those decisions. Life is a growing process, its a growing process for all of us. He knows what needs to bbe done. Fake Nike Air Max Replica. Were all accountable. Each and every one of us in this organization is accountable." The 49ers also still hope to reach agreement on a long-term extension with quarterback Colin Kaepernick before the start of training camp. Baalke said the team would let the investigation play out regarding Kaepernick being linked to a Miami police report earlier this month involving a woman who passed out in a hotel and later woke up in a hospital not knowing how she got there. Kaepernick has strongly denied any wrongdoing via Twitter. "Any time an individual puts himself in a situation that becomes newsworthy, we certainly pay attention to it," Baalke said. "To say theres no concern, that would probably be a misrepresentation of the facts. At the same time, lets let this thing play out and lets see where it goes." In addition, cornerback Chris Culliver — who became famous for the wrong reasons when he made anti-gay remarks before the Super Bowl in February 2013 — has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanour hit-and-run charges and felony possession of brass knuckles from a March 28 arrest. "Are we disappointed weve had a string? Absolutely," Baalke said. "One is too many. So if ones too many, then five or six is way too many. This isnt something we take lightly. We expect a lot from our football players. We expect a lot from ourselves." He said he is sorry a few players have hurt the reputation of the entire roster and organization. "Im adamant in my thoughts that this is a good group of men. Have they made some mistakes? Absolutely they have," Baalke said. "Im not going to sit up here and defend them. There is concern. We hold ourselves to a high standard. The community deserves that. We represent the community." Baalke also addressed his working relationship with coach Jim Harbaugh: "To say its always two rams butting heads is so false and misleading. To say theres no tension would also probably be false and misleading, but its good tension." Notes: Baalke said he hasnt heard from LaMichael James or his representatives to formally request a trade, but knows the RB said on Twitter he could benefit from a change. Baalkes understanding is James isnt at the voluntary off-season program because of a new baby at home. ...

The former Olympiakos and Deportivo la Coruna boss replaced Gus Poyet, who was sacked during the international break after back-to-back defeats saw them drop to within two points of the relegation zone.And the change was justified as goals from Bruno and Aissa Mandi brought only their second home win of the season. Betis certainly seemed energised by their new coach with Mandi and Ruben Castro both having chances inside the opening four minutes.Kevin Prince-Boateng produced a couple of responses for the visitors but it was Betis who continued to threaten with Castro again thwarted from just outside the area before the breakthrough finally arrived in the 27th minute.Joaquins cross following a corner was headed home from close range by Bruno.

The only problem is the Alouettes are losing parts and losing games as a result. Tonight, the Als see how well they can hold up as they hit the road to take on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers at Investors Group Field. You can watch the pre-game show live on TSN and TSN GO.  You can then listen in on live game coverage on TSN Radio 690.  Montreal knew 2014 would be a trying season, what with the retirement of quarterback Anthony Calvillo, but few thought the team would hit the skids so violently. The Als were hoping to get some positive returns from Troy Smith, a former Heisman Trophy winner while at Ohio State, but he has not panned out. In fact, he is now on the six-game injured list, which makes Alex Brink the quarterback of record. Last week, the Als suffered their fifth straight loss and the sixth setback in seven tries on the season, bowing at Saskatchewan in a 16-11 final. Brink was serviceable as he converted 19-of-31 passes for 187 yards, was intercepted once and sacked three times. The signal caller also ran for a team-best 32 yards on three carries, which might not be the best idea these days given the state of quarterback play in Montreal. The lone highlight for the Alouettes came in the fourth quarter when Duron Carter secured a missed field goal and returned it 123 yards to the end zone, accounting for the only major of the game for Montreal and drawing the team into a tie with the Roughriders for the time being. The active roster for the Alouettes now includes quarterbacks Tanner Marsh and Jonathan Crompton, along with Brink. Not surprisingly, the Montreal passing attack ranks dead last in the CFL still, showing an awful efficiency rating of 59.0, stemming from a mere 47.9 percent completion rate and four touchdowns against six interceptions in seven games. As for Brink, who previously played three seasons with the Blue Bombers, he is a career 56.1 percent passer and has more picks (15) than touchdowns (13) at the moment. The Alouettes may be on a five-game losing skid, but quarterback Drew Willy isnt viewing Fridays game as a slam dunk for the Blue Bombers. Winnipeg (5-3) has had troubles of its own lately, losing two straight heading into the home game against Montreal (1-6). And as much as the Alouettes are struggling, some of their losses have been in close games against good teams. "We saw even last week, they played Saskatchewan very tough, to the wire there," Willy said Thursday of Montreals 16-11 loss to the Roughriders. "Theyre not far off from winning games so we need to take them very seriously and thats what we have been doing." In their first game against each other in Montreal, Winnipeg rallied for a 34-33 come-from-behind win, one of three late-game victories the Bombers have pulled out this season. But Winnipegs last two losses exposed some weaknesses in a team that surprrisingly jumped out to a 5-1 start. Fake Yeezy Boost 700 For Sale. Toronto threw four touchdown passes and racked up 174 rushing yards in a 38-21 home victory on Aug. 12 that included plenty of missed tackles by Bomber defenders. Winnipegs last home game on Aug. 7 was a 23-17 loss to Saskatchewan, featuring six Bomber turnovers the Roughriders used to score 20 points in front of the first sellout crowd of the season. "We had this long week to focus on technique, basically getting the things weve done wrong over the last few games back to the right way," Winnipeg defensive tackle Bryant Turner said. In all three of Winnipegs losses this season, they failed to stop the oppositions ground game. While Toronto rushed for 174 yards, Saskatchewan racked up 186 yards and Edmonton tallied 192 in its 26-3 victory against Winnipeg on July 17. Montreal running back Brandon Whitaker isnt a big, bruising back, but hes been eating up the yards and sits third in the CFL in rushing yards with 406 yards on 87 carries. Winnipegs Nic Grigsby is first after rushing 97 times for 416 yards. "(Whitaker is) a good back and I think theyre going to use him, especially with a new quarterback in there," Bombers middle linebacker Ian Wild said. Former Bomber pivot Alex Brink is making his second straight start for the Als in place of injured Troy Smith. Brink played for Winnipeg from 2010-12 and went 3-4. Winnipeg head coach Mike OShea said his team wont take Brink lightly. "With a young quarterback whos maybe not been handed the job, hes going to try and make plays, not only with his arm, but with his feet," OShea said. "So you have to look at the fact that hes probably going to try to pull the ball and run if he has to." OShea expects running will be in Montreals game package. "If you look at what our defence has given up in the last couple games, then obviously part of their game plan will be to run the ball on us," he said. "Thats not rocket science." The Alouettes have averaged 21.3 points per game at home this season and only 8.0 on the road. Bomber cornerback Chris Randle said the defence wont back down on attacking the Als. "We need to attack in certain angles, more cohesive as a unit," Randle said. "Thats what we worked on all week long. We want to have it where everyones flying to the ball - organized chaos is what we call it." Winnipegs defensive front seven will be without two key players. Defensive end Jason Vega is out with turf toe and will be replaced by Kashawn Fraser. Linebacker Ejiro Kuale is sidelined with a back problem and Abe Kromah will take his spot. Notes: Bomber receiver Nick Moore is back on the roster after missing three games with a foot injury. Romby Bryant comes off to make room à Montreals Mike Edem is expected to make his first start of the season at safety in place of injured Marc-Olivier Brouillette. ' ' '

Morneau hit a two-run homer in the 10th inning and helped the Colorado Rockies turn the third triple play in team history as they beat the San Diego Padres 8-6 on Sunday.Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - A two-goal first period and 32 saves from Scott Darling propelled the Chicago Blackhawks to an eighth consecutive win, a 3-2 triumph over the Boston Bruins at TD Garden. Ben Smith had one of Chicagos early goals and set up the other -- the first of Klas Dahlbecks NHL career -- while Darling outplayed reigning Vezina Trophy winner Tuukka Rask in the rookies sixth career start. Patrick Kane also tallied and Marcus Kruger recorded two assists for the red-hot Blackhawks, who survived a late comeback effort from the Bruins as well as an injury to Jonathan Toews. The Chicago captain did not return after sustaining an upper-body injury near the midway mark of the second period. I think hes going to be alright, Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville said afterward. The Bruins had their captain, Zdeno Chara, back in the lineup after missing 19 straight games with a knee injury, but still fell for the fourth time in their last five outings. Rask managed just 18 saves. Darling, recalled from the minors last week with Corey Crawford sidelined by an ailing foot, came up with 14 saves during a first period in which the Blackhawks surged ahead with a pair of high-effort goals. Smith had a hand in both scores, setting up the first by fighting off a check from along the boards and sending a pass to Dahlbeck for a quick shot that got through Rask 9:10 in. He later alertly knocked a puck centered by Daniel Carcillo into an open side to give Chicago a 2-0 lead with 1:17 remaining in the opening frame. The effort was there from start to finish, but as you could see in that first period, the execution was poor, said Bruins head coach Claude Julien. Wholesale Shoes From China. Weve got to get better in those areas if we want to start winning some hockey games. Kane extended the margin with 6:41 left in the second, taking advantage of a failed clearing attempt by the Bruins to blast in a rising shot from the right of the Boston net. The Bruins were able to enter the third period with some momentum, as Reilly Smith converted an on-target behind-the-net feed from Brad Marchand 1:23 prior to the second intermission to get the home team on the board. Boston inched closer during a final period in which it dominated the action, getting within one thanks to an excellent individual effort from Milan Lucic. The physical forward bounced off a pair of defenders during a transition rush, then found a trailing Torey Krug for a blast that rifled past Darling with 7:43 left to play. The Bruins got just two more shots on goal the rest of the way, however, and werent able to generate a good scoring chance with Rask pulled in the final minutes. I was just happy we won, Darling said. There were some lucky bounces for me. The (defense) was playing great and everyone was fighting hard to keep the puck out of the net. Game Notes Darling and fellow backstop Antti Raanta have combined to allow just nine goals over Chicagos past five wins ... The Blackhawks improved to 16-3-0 when scoring first this season ... Boston had been 7-2-0 in games in which it scored in the final two minutes of a period ... Bruins forward Simon Gagne missed the game, taking a leave absence from the team earlier in the week to attend to his father, who is battling cancer, in Quebec. ' ' '

Glendale, AZ (SportsNetwork. Cheap Fake Vans .com) - Antoine Vermette recorded his fourth career hat trick as the Arizona Coyotes downed the Philadelphia Flyers, 4-2, on Monday. Devan Dubnyk made 30 saves and Oliver Ekman-Larsson scored the eventual game- winning goal as Arizona matched its season high with a third straight victory. R.J. Umberger scored twice 3:02 apart late in the third period, but the Flyers nevertheless fell to 3-2 on their eight-game road trip. Steve Mason, in his first start since Dec. 18, surrendered three goals on 24 shots against. Mark Streit fed Umberger for his first goal with 7:49 remaining in the third, and the Flyers went on a power play less than a minute later. They failed to score with the man advantage but kept the pressure on, and Umberger deflected a Sean Couturier shot into the back of the net with 4:47 left on the clock. Philadelphias best chance in the closing moments came on Claude Girouxs cross-ice pass to Vincent Lecavalier. Lecavalier let a one-timer fly from the right circle, but Dubnyk easily smothered it. Vermette sealed the win and his hat trick with an empty-netter. The Coyotes won a faceoff in front of Dubnyk late in the opening period and caught the Flyers on their heels going the other way. Shane Doan let a shot fly from the point, and Vermettes deft deflection snuck past Mason with 1:34 left in the stanza. Mason saved a shot through a screen in the second period, but the rebound spun loose and Vermette was there for an easy goal at the 15:31 mark. Flyers forward Scott Laughton was sent off for hooking 2:02 into the third, and on the ensuing power play, Ekman-Larsson posted his ninth goal of the season with a shot from the point.

Now the Heat can prepare for another. James had 24 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and Miami routed Detroit 110-95 on Sunday, avenging a home loss to the Pistons less than a week ago. Up next for the Heat is a game at Indiana on Tuesday. The Pacers have the NBAs best record -- and this will be the first meeting between the teams since Miamis seven-game victory in last seasons playoffs. "Theyre a great team right now, the way theyre playing," James said. "Were trying to get healthy, were trying to get to our full potential. Well see what we can do." First, the Heat had a score to settle against a Detroit team that won 107-97 at Miami on Tuesday. Ray Allen scored 18 points for the Heat, who were without Dwyane Wade on Sunday but still shot 56 per cent from the field and 11 of 28 from 3-point range. Miami took an early 16-5 lead, and although the Pistons fought back, the Heat went on a 13-2 run in the third quarter to make it 74-57. "They got us pretty good -- they beat up on us in Miami," James said. "To return the favour, we wanted to play much better against them this time." Miami looked motivated from the start. Allens 3-pointer made it 12-2, and although the Pistons steadied themselves momentarily, they could never tie it. Miami led 59-53 at halftime, and Mario Chalmers and Allen each made 3-pointers during the crucial run at the beginning of the third quarter. The Heat led 91-70 after three. "We knew that their focus was going to be higher, and you could see that at the beginning of the game and again in the third quarter. They were really able to push the ball off our missed shots and get some easy baskets," Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We knew what was coming after we beat them up there, but knowing they are going to be coming hard is one thing. Stopping them is something else." Andre Drummond had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Detroiit, which had its four-game winning streak snapped. Fake Jordan 1 . The Pistons never showed any sign of slowing down Miami, and although they finished with 17 offensive rebounds, they never took full advantage of a potential edge inside. Detroit had a 21-6 edge in second-chance points, but that could have been far worse for the Heat against Drummond and Greg Monroe. "I thought we did a better job tonight versus last game of -- when they did get the ball, really wall them up and force them under the basket," Miamis Shane Battier said. "Those guys are pogo sticks, and not much you can do when theyre playing above the rim like that. But once they catch it, try to wall them up and keep them pinned to the baseline." The Pistons entered as NBA leaders in steals per game, and the Heat turned the ball over 10 times in the first half, but Miami took care of the ball better over the final two quarters, and its torrid shooting never really let up. The Miami bench scored 41 points on 15-of-24 shooting. Roger Mason Jr. had 12 points and Chris Andersen added 10. James, meanwhile, shot 10 of 15 from the field, although he did have six of Miamis 16 turnovers. Chris Bosh scored 16 points for the Heat. Brandon Jennings had 19 for the Pistons. "I didnt think we had enough energy tonight. When you are playing at home, you should have a ton of energy, and we didnt," Detroits Kyle Singler said. "We went in there and beat them a few days ago, so we knew they were going to want revenge tonight. They are tough when they play like that." Wade played in Miamis win over Minnesota on Saturday night, but coach Erik Spoelstra likes to rest him in back-to-backs to reduce the wear and tear on his knees. Heat forward Michael Beasley (left hamstring) and Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey (left knee) were also out. NOTES: Detroits last five-game winning streak was in December of 2009. ... Miami shot 65 per cent in the first half and was 5 of 12 from 3-point range. ' ' '

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. Walter McCarty Jersey . - U.S. Open champion Justin Rose thought his ball might have moved. Then he was convinced it didnt. Only after he got up-and-down to save par and looked at the replay on three televisions did he see the slighest movement that came with a stiff penalty Saturday in The Players Championship. The two-shot penalty turned his 71 into a 73. Instead of being five shots behind Jordan Spieth and Martin Kaymer, he was seven shots back. "That was a bitter pill to swallow at the end of a battling day," Rose said. "In some ways, its my own fault for trying to be my own rules official." Rose missed the 18th green to the right and set up over the ball to play a delicate chip. Suddenly, he backed away when there appeared to be movement right after he lightly grounded his club. He called over Sergio Garcia. They watched the replay on a video board. "We both clearly look at the evidence and look at the replay and say, No, absolutely the ball didnt move," Rose said. "But under 50 times magnification in the truck, maybe the ball moved a quarter of a dimple toward the toe of the club. Obviously, if the ball moved, it moved. And I get assessed an extra stroke penalty." Rose was penalized under Rule 18-2b for causing the ball to move at address (one shot), and then an additional shot for not replacing it. He might have been able to save himself one shot by calling for an official to go through the incident. Rose said the grass was soft and uneven, which he thought might have given the appearance that the ball moved. "Ive gone from trying to chip in to make 3 to walking off with a 6," he said of his double bogey. "Disappointing. But in the same way, Im glad now that at least the right decision has been made. The ball moved. Obviously, I made a mistake." Rose was not spared by an addition to the "Decisions on the Rules of Golf" this year (18/4) that would waive the penalty if a ball movement was not "reasonably discernible to the naked eye at the time" and required enhanced technology. The fact he quickly backed away from the shot was evidence that it was discernible. Even so, this took what Rose called "four trucks and different technology" to sort out. Before signing his scorecard, he looked at a replay on NBC Sports and it looked fine. European Tour rules official David Probyn weighed in with some concerns to make sure it was right, and Rose said he went to a second and a third trailer to see different television views "where they really zoomed in." "The movement ... was virtually not visible," he said. It was reminiscent of the BMW Championship last year in Chicago, where Tiger Woods was penalized two shots when video showed his ball moved ever so slightly as Woods was removing loose twigs around it. Woods was adamant that the ball only oscillated, even after video evidence. He was penalized two shots. In both cases, no advantage was gained. But the Rules of Golf require the ball to be "played as it lies." "It has to be the right result," Rose said. "Because if the ball moves — whether it moves an inch, if the ball moves a hair — the ball moved. And Im happy now. My conscience is clear. Ill sleep better tonight knowing that, eventually, the right decision was made." But he wasnt entirely happy. "No advantage gained, and obviously now a big disadvantage, unfortunately," he said about the two-shot penalty. Ray Allen Jersey . -- Arizona coach Bruce Arians says there "were obviously very, very many problems" with the officiating in the Cardinals 24-21 loss at Philadelphia. Cheap Celtics Jerseys .J. Ellis hit an RBI single in the ninth inning, Hanley Ramirez hit a tape-measure, three-run homer in the first against Cliff Lee and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 on Saturday night.FRANKFURT, Germany -- Max Meyer and Jefferson Farfan scored in the second half to give Schalke a 2-0 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga on Friday. The victory strengthened Schalkes hold on third place and pulled it even on points with second-place Borussia Dortmund ahead of its match at Bayern Munich. Schalke dominated the match and wasted a dozen good chances. Klaas-Jan Huntelaarr had a penalty saved by Eintracht goalkeeper Kevin Trapp, while Schalke twice hit the woodwork. Boston Celtics Gear. Trapp also saved Huntelaars header from two meters out. But Schalke broke the deadlock in the 59th. Sead Kolasinac fired against the post, Trapp saved the follow-up but Meyer slotted home. Farfan buried a free kick from 20 metres (yards) in injury time to seal the win. ' ' '
