  goalie over Roberto Luongo

SHANGHAI - Novak Djokovic and Roger Federer set up a rematch of their Wimbledon final with convincing straight-set wins to reach the semifinals of the Shanghai Masters on Friday.The top-ranked Djokovic defeated David Ferrer 6-4, 6-2 to extend his winning streak in China to 28 matches, while Federer played a nearly flawless second set to beat Julien Benneteau of France 7-6 (4), 6-0.It will be the 36th meeting in their rivalry, which has been remarkably close, with Federer taking 18 of their matches and Djokovic 17. The players have split their four matches this year, though Djokovic earned the far biggesr prize with his second Wimbledon trophy in July.There is no clear favourite, Djokovic said. Every time we play against each other, its a thriller.The Serb would seem to have a slight advantage given his recent dominance in China, where he hasnt lost since a semifinal defeat to Federer in Shanghai in 2010. Since then, hes captured the China Open three times, and the Shanghai Masters twice.But Djokovic doesnt believe the court — or his sizeable contingent of Serbian-flag-waving Chinese fans — will give him an edge.Well, its not like he didnt have a lot of success anywhere he went, including China, he said. He knows how to play here. He has also big support.Djokovic played much better on Friday than he did in the previous round, when he struggled to put away big-hitting Mikhail Kukushkin.He was tested just once against the fifth-seeded Ferrer, while serving for the first set at 5-4. The Spaniard played remarkable defence to fight off three set points, then held two break points for 5-all. He failed to convert either, though, and Djokovic finally ended the tiring, 13-minute game with a drop shot followed by a volley into the open court.Federer, too, played his most solid match of the week against Benneteau. He had 34 winners to only 13 unforced errors, and won nearly all of the points on his first serve (34 of 37).The Swiss star, who will overtake Rafael Nadal to return to No. 2 in the rankings next week, said he has faced Djokovic so many times now, there were no secrets to each others games.Well see how much he can actually do, how much he can neutralize me, and how much I can do with him, he said. But hes playing a great season again. Ill give it the best shot I have. I have a good game at the moment.The other semifinal will feature two veterans playing some of their best tennis — Gilles Simon and Feliciano Lopez.Lopez, who knocked out an ailing Rafael Nadal in the second round, defeated Mikhail Youzhny 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 in the quarterfinals.At 33, the Spaniard is having a resurgent year, winning his fourth career title at Eastbourne and rising to No. 16 in the rankings, one off his career high. Hes also a three-time semifinalist in Shanghai, though hes never advanced to the final.Simon upset sixth-seeded Tomas Berdych 7-6 (4), 4-6, 6-0. It was his second top-10 win of the week after beating fourth-seeded Stan Wawrinka in the second round.Asked the last time he managed to do that, he said, I dont know. You tell me. Maybe never.Lopez has won two of their three previous meetings, though both matches were on grass. [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] .

MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins and free-agent right-hander Ervin Santana were working Thursday to finalize a four-year, $55 million contract, according to two people with direct knowledge of the deal.The agreement was reached in San Diego at baseballs winter meetings. The two people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the contract had not yet been signed. Included in Santanas guarantee is a $1 million buyout of a fifth-year option on the deal.The Twins again brought a need for better starting pitching into the off-season, and Santana has been one of the steadiest around. Over the last five years, Santana averaged 12 wins, 207 innings and 164 strikeouts while making 30 or more starts each season. The Twins pursued him a year ago, but he held out until March and signed with Atlanta for one season and $14.1 million.Santana, who turns 32 Friday, was 14-10 with a 3.95 ERA in 31 starts for the Braves last year.The Twins spent aggressively on starting pitching last winter, signing free agents Ricky Nolasco ($49 million), Phil Hughes ($24 million) and Mike Pelfrey ($11 million), who had previously joined the team for 2013 on a one-year deal. Nolasco was given the richest contract for a free agent in Twins history.The Twins have had the worst collective ERA by their starting pitchers in the major leagues the last two seasons (5.06 in 2014 and 5.26 in 2013), and only the Colorado Rockies were higher than their 5.40 mark in 2012. Hughes was a major upgrade for the group last year, posting a 3.52 ERA and a 16-10 record with 186 strikeouts in 209 2-3 innings. But other than Kyle Gibson, who was up and down in his second season in the majors, the Twins offered little resistance to hitters around the rest of the league. Nolasco struggled badly in his first year.General manager Terry Ryan said last week that the rotation was the priority for yet another winter.Weve had a struggle on the mound so well continue to look at pitching first, Ryan said.Santana was picked for the All-Star game in 2008, his fourth of eight seasons with the Los Angeles Angels, who traded him to the Kansas City Royals for 2013. Because Santana turned down a qualifying offer from the Braves, his signing comes with draft-pick compensation. The Twins must forfeit their second-round selection next year.With Santana, Hughes, Gibson and Nolasco in line for the first four spots, Pelfrey will likely compete in spring training with prospects Trevor May and Alex Meyer for the fifth slot in the rotation with Tommy Milone also in the mix. Santana has made three career starts at Target Field, going 2-0 with a 3.10 ERA and 14 strikeouts in 20 1-3 innings.___AP Sports Writer Ronald Blum contributed to this report from San Diego.

Benfeito and Filion, the Olympic bronze medallists and currently ranked second in the world, totalled 330.75 points. Sarah Barrow and Tonia Couch of Britain followed for silver at 311.10 and Emily Boyd and Lara Tarvit of Australia were third at 308.58. "Its really incredible to win an international gold medal at home," said Benfeito. "Its something we dont experience very often. Everything we worked on in practice showed in our performance today. Its very motivating for our big events coming up this summer. We know what we need to improve and we are going to focus on that." Xiaohui Huang and Jie Lian of China withdrew after their first dive due to an injury. "They are a team that generally scores in the 330 point area so we are pleased to be around that score as well," said Benfeito. "It shows we are closing in on the Chinese." Jennifer Abel of Laval and Pamela Ware of Beloeil, Que., meanwhile came within 0.15 points of a powerful Chinese pair in a thrilling three-metre synchro final for the silver. It went down tto the final dive.dddddddddddd Han Wang and He Zi of China took the gold at 326.40, Abel and Ware followed with a personal best 326.25 and Tania Cagnotto and Francesca Dallape of Italy were third at 308.10. "Every dive went very well and we feel great to get a points record," said Ware in her second-year diving with Abel, an Olympic medallist in 2012. "Weve never been this close to a top Chinese team before." Zi won the Olympic gold medal on three-metre synchro with Wu Minxia in 2012 and Wang was a double medallist at last years world championships. The Chinese led after the first three rounds but the Canadians pulled ahead in the fourth when they nailed their forward two and half, the most difficult on their list, for 8.5s and 9.0s to pull ahead and set up a dramatic finish. "I was glad to do that dive well when it counted," said Ware. "Its been very stable for Jen but I had been inconsistent in practice." Yue Lin and Yuan Cao of China won both the mens three-metre and 10-metre synchro events. No Canadians were entered. Competition continues through to Sunday at the Windsor International Aquatic and Training Centre. It is the first time Canada hosts a World Series competition.

Posted by: zxlbxj1 - 12-12-2018, 03:42 AM - Forum: About Client - No Replies

You dont know them. Not many people do. Days… Weeks… Months… Almost a year has gone by and still… you dont know them. The legendary Robert Montgomery Knight, aka, The General, one of the winningest coaches in college basketball history, strolls in to inspect the troops. He came to see them, to share his wisdom before they march into madness… to see who exactly this rag-tag bunch of players, not blue bloods… scrappers… fighters… winners, were.  Coach Knight, the leader of the last college team to go undefeated and win an NCAA title, the 1976 Indiana Hoosiers, shows up at practice in late February to tell them to take it "one game at a time". He is a fan of how they play. "Play Angry". The 2013-2014 Wichita State mens basketball team does just that. But more importantly, plays hard, plays tough and plays together, leading to an NCAA-record 30-0 regular season mark under head coach Gregg Marshall. Saturday, March 1, 2014: Charles Koch Arena, Wichita, Kansas: Senior Night. The final matchup before the conference tourney and the opponent Missouri State is no easy out for the Shockers.  This is also the final home game for two Canadian senior forwards, Chadrack Lufile, as well as his best friend, a young man whose last name is famous, not only in the state of Kansas, but on a couple continents, Nick Wiggins. Nick has a younger brother, Andrew who you may know, playing in the same state only two and half hours away, for a program so steeped in tradition, the inventor of basketball was the first head coach of the Kansas Jayhawks, fellow Canuck James Naismith. I got on the phone with Nick Wiggins and Chadrack Lufile post-practice this week to talk life in the shadows and possibly shocking the world. Did you guys know one another before signing at Wichita State? NW: Weve known one another since we were teenagers. CL: We actually went to the same junior college together at Vincennes in Indiana. NW: I signed first. I didnt force him to sign or anything… just told him it would be special for us to go together. Why Wichita State? CL: Nick had narrowed his choices down to Baylor and Wichita State. He talked about his visit, how they treated him, the ambitions of the coaches and players. There was just a feeling; a good feeling about it all. Once Nick decided, I was in, too. We had to take advantage of what looked like a great opportunity in front of us. NW: When we first got here, first couple years, we didnt play as much as wed have liked to but it was always about team. Still, it was tough at times, knowing you could help the team on the court more. CL: My Dads a minister. He has a huge influence on all that I do. Once, wed lost three straight, neither one of us was playing a lot and my Dad prayed for us. Not just us, but the team. I remember telling Nick about it. NW: Yeah, I mean we had 7-8 guys on this team last year who could score 20 in any game, but we share the ball. Thats how play. CL: And then we ended up in the Final Four. We believed... If you had to compare your game to any Wichita State great from the past, who would it be and why? NW: So many great players who have come through here. Id say Cleo Littleton. He was known for his defence and for being a great teammate. I think thats me. CL: X! Xavier McDaniel. He and Antoine Carr, another Shockers legend, came in to to see us last year and really instilled in us to "Play Angry". Thats our thing now: Play Angry. He (McDaniel) told me to box out hard, never let anyone get to the ball before I did, rebound strong, run the floor harder than my opponent, be versatile with my game. We emulate the guys who were here before us. They are Shockers for life! What do you say to the pundits who believe 30-0 is a function of you guys playing in the Missouri Valley Conference, the perceived lack in your strength of schedule and not because youre a great team? NW: Schedule us. Everyone talks KU (Kansas), but they wouldnt play us. We wanted to do it at a neutral site, but they didnt want it. Thats ok, people who dont believe mid-majors can compete with major D-1 schools havent really watched us play. They will find out soon enough. CL: Say what you want about our conference or the teams we beat. Just come play us. We feel like we can compete with anyone. We beat the #1 team in the country in Gonzaga in the tournament last year. Ohio State was #7, Pitt #20. Just play us. Do you think you should be ranked #1 in the country? CL: Honestly, I think we should be! NW: We dont really pay it much attention. It could be almost like a distraction. We dont look past anyone. You still gotta win. The team we play our last home game against, Missouri State, is tough. They had us down by like 17 with about 11 minutes to go in the game before we fought back and won. It was a war. Im sure they wont care that its Senior Night for us when we play them again. They wanna win, too! If Wichita State runs the table by winning your conference tourney, should you be a #1 seed for March Madness? NW: We proved all year we should be a #1 seed. I think the selection committee will do the right thing and give us that. We lost some great guys from last years team and still havent skipped a beat or lost a step. Coach Marshall has us prepared. This will be a special ride to go on with this group of guys. Dream Scenario: Clearly winning it all is the ultimate dream. But, if Wichita State had a chance to play Kansas in the final on April 7 in Dallas, why would it be that much sweeter? CL: Lets Go!!! Do you know how hype that would be?!? NW: If they seed us and Kansas in the same region 1-2, wow, the rivalry... My brother. I believe itll happen. State bragging rights. Man, I would have lifetime bragging rights in my house (laughs)!!! CL: Andrew (Wiggins) would come down to chill and hang with us. Id tell him "Youre not ready for us, Bro (laughs)!" Im no genius or anything, but I believe all of this. All the things that are happening with Wichita State are meant to be. I feel like well meet Kansas, God Willing. And God Is Good...

Next up are the Tampa Bay Lightning, who enter the season with high expectations after a strong showing without their superstar for much of last season. Catch up on their summer moves and the issues they face this season, as well as Craig Buttons analysis of their top prospect and an analytical breakdown by TSNs Scott Cullen. Division: Atlantic GM: Steve Yzerman Head Coach: Jon Cooper 2013-14: 46-27-9 (2nd in Atlantic) Playoffs: Lost in division semifinals Goals For: 232 (9th) Goals Against: 209 (11th) Powerplay: 18.5% (13th) Penalty Kill: 80.7% (23rd) That Was Then: The Lightning were short on believers heading into 2013-14, having finished with the Leaguea€?s third-worst record the previous season and being lumped into a tough new division alongside the likes of Boston, Montreal and Detroit. That didna€?t seem to phase the team, who roared out of the gate and won eight games in both October and November. By the middle of November they were the best team in the East led by a nearly-unstoppable Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis, the former scoring 14 goals in his first 16 games. Then, on Nov. 11 the season changed entirely. Stamkos went sliding feet first into the goalpost at the TD Garden in Boston and fractured his tibia. The prognosis was immediately grim, with the Brampton native expected to miss months in recovery time. Funny thing, though, the Bolts kept winning. They put up the exact same number of points in December and January (17) as they did in November and St. Louis took over, producing at a point-per-game pace right up until the Olympic break. And therea€?s the white elephant in the room. The Olympics were a huge distraction for the Lightning from the moment the team was announced on Jan. 5. GM Steve Yzerman named Stamkos to the Canadian Olympic hockey team, turning all eyes towards his recovery and whether he would be fit in time to make the trip to Sochi. However, he also omitted St. Louis from the original roster, leading to all kinds of speculation over why he overlooked one of the Leaguea€?s top producers from his own team. The rumour mill began to churn with belief that St. Louis wanted out of Florida. He was eventually named to the Olympic team and win gold with Canada. However, after just four games back with the Lightning post-Sochi, he was dealt to the New York Rangers for the expiring contract of their captain Ryan Callahan and a hatful of draft picks. Stamkos was back for the next game and picked up where left off, scoring nine goals in 10 games to finish the month. The Lightning, though, suffered another blow with eventual Vezina Trophy-winner Ben Bishop injuring his wrist in the final week of the season. The injury forced the team to lean on Anders Lindback and Latvian Olympic hero Kristers Gudlevskis to finish their schedule and into the post-season. The Lightning finished the season second in the Atlantic, narrowly edging the Canadiens. The Habs, though, got the last laugh, sweeping the Bishop-less Bolts in the first round of the playoffs.

Key Additions: C Brian Boyle, D Jason Garrison,, LW Brenden Morrow, G Evgeni Nabokov, D Anton Stralman Key Subtractions: D Keith Aulie, RW B.ddddddddddddJ. Crombeen, D Mike Kostka, G Anders Lindback, LW Ryan Malone, RW Teddy Purcell, C Tom Pyatt, C Nate Thompson This Is Now: Its clearly Stamkosa€? team now. Hea€?s proven he can score without St. Louis on his flank, so the team now turns to him as it tries to make the leap into true contender status. Yzerman had a busy off-season, adding veteran pieces and furiously moving bodies around to free up cap space to help fill the ranks behind his captain. The result of his labours sees Callahan back on a six-year deal, veteran pieces like Brenden Morrow and Jason Garrison given a chance to boost the teama€?s veteran core, Anton Stralman getting a nice payday for his post-season success with the Rangers. It also saw Sam Gagner in a Lightning uniform for all of an hour or so as he acquired the former Oiler in exchange for Teddy Purcell before flipping him to Arizona to free up the cap spaces that eventually led to all of the above moves. Tampa appears to have found a model they like in the Rangers and few would argue against it, with the team fresh off a Stanley Cup Final appearance. The two-way skill of Stralman and the grit of Brian Boyle help make the Lightning a more complete team and the team clearly saw enough out of Callahan to convince themselves that he is a necessary long-term piece for the club. The addition of Evgeni Nabokov also provides some insulation should Bishop run into injuries once again while not clogging the future path to the Lightning roster should Gudlevskis or 2012 first-rounder Andrei Vasilevskiy force the issue.

Great vision of the known and unknown and his anticipation of the patterns unfolding and ability to then makes plays of a highly productive nature is outstanding. He is always probing for the weakness in a defense and when he finds it, hea€?s lightning quick to exploit it. Great hands and he can make all manner of plays with the puck in traffic and in tight areas. Hea€?s involved in all of the heavy and critical areas and he has a burning desire to excel and make things happen. He can play any situation in the game and he does so with a full comprehension of what each one requires. He is that player who beats up opponents with his skill, his mind and his competitiveness. Fantasy - Cullens Player to Watch - Nikita Kucherov The 2011 second-rounder faces a lot of competition for quality ice time among the Lightnings talented young forwards, but the numbers indicate that Kucherov can score if given the opportunity.

While Kucherov finished with a modest 18 points in 52 games last season, he had the best possession stats on the team (min. 500 minutes) and generated the second-most shots per minute.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Buffalo Bills defence has a dynamic duo: Super Mario and a newcomer named Rambo.Credit them for helping rattle Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.Bacarri Rambo came off the bench to replace injured backup safety Duke Williams to intercept Rodgers on consecutive drives in the second half. And veteran end Mario Williams put the finishing touches on a 21-13 victory Sunday by forcing Rodgers to fumble into the end zone for a safety with 1:51 left.Its a testament to what we do, defensive tackle Kyle Williams said, assessing how a dominating defensive effort contributed to keeping the Bills (8-6) in a jumbled playoff picture. Weve played against great quarterbacks, so the only expectation that we had was to play well and win a football game.Marcus Thigpen scored on a 75-yard punt return, while Dan Carpenter hit all four field-goal attempts, including three in the second half.The Bills are assured their first eight-win season since going 9-7 in 2004.A week after ending Peyton Mannings consecutive game touchdown streak at 51 in a 24-17 loss at Denver, the Bills came away with a victory by putting the clamps on one of the NFLs most prolific offences.I wouldnt say statement win, safety Aaron Williams said. We went up against a Hall of Famer last week, why couldnt we do it again this week?The defence made up for a sputtering Kyle Orton-led offence, which was limited to 253 yards and 13 first downs. Orton finished 14 of 27 for 158 yards and an interception.In the process, Buffalo put a halt to the Packers five-game winning streak, and prevented Green Bay (10-4) from inching closer to securing a sixth consecutive playoff berth.It was frustrating, said Rodgers. Some days are going to be like this. We set the standard pretty high, and we like to live up to it every week.Rodgers went 17 of 42 for 185 yards, with two interceptions. He had been picked off just three times this season, and none since throwing two in Green Bays last loss, 44-23 at New Orleans on Oct. 26.It wasnt all on Rodgers, either, as he had little support from his receivers. That includes the usually reliable Jordy Nelson, who had a key drop late in the third quarter.From his 6, Rodgers found Nelson wide open running up the right side. The pass hit Nelson in stride, but the ball glanced off the receivers fingers.We had exactly what we wanted. We just didnt make the play, Nelson said. I short-armed it and dropped it.The Packers were limited to Eddie Lacys 1-yard touchdown run and two field goals by Mason Crosby.This from a team coming off a 43-37 win over Atlanta and that had outscored its past five opponents by 201-113. Rodgers combined for 1,580 yards passing with 16 touchdowns and no turnovers in his previous five games.It all came to a halt against a defence ranked among the NFLs top 10 in nearly every measurable category.Rambo set the tone upon taking over after backup Duke Williams was escorted off the field experiencing concussion-like symptoms early in the third quarter. The Bills were already down starting safety DaNorris Searcy (hamstring).Rambos first interception came on the Packers second play from scrimmage after Dan Carpenter hit a 35-yard field goal to put Buffalo ahead 16-10.Rambo sprinted 10 yards from midfield to make a sliding interception of Rodgers pass intended for Randall Cobb at the Green Bay 45. His second came on the Packers next drive when Rodgers passed for Jarrett Boykin over the middle. It tipped off the receivers hands and to Rambo. That set up Carpenter hitting a 48-yard field goal.Its a huge, huge confidence boost, said Rambo, released in September after playing 13 games for Washington over the past two seasons. Its going to allow me to play even faster and build confidence in myself that, hey, I can do this. I belong in this league.The Packers werent done until their first play on their final possession.From his 10, Rodgers dropped back and had the ball knocked out of his hand by Mario Williams, who burst in from the left side and outmuscled backup lineman JC Tretter.The play was whistled dead once Lacy recovered the fumble, because only Rodgers was allowed to advance the ball with under 2:00 remaining.NOTES: The Packers fell to 0-6 at Orchard Park. ... The Bills went 4-0 against the AFC North. ... Mario Williams also contributed a special teams play, by blocking Crosbys 53-yard field-goal attempt with 6:01 left in the second quarter.___AP NFL website: [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] and [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] . -- Canada played to expectation up until halftime.

  against the Republic
Posted by: zxlbxj1 - 12-12-2018, 03:33 AM - Forum: About Client - No Replies

VANCOUVER - After a short break during the group stages of the World Cup, the Major League Soccer season gets back underway on Wednesday night with an all-Canadian clash at BC Place as Vancouver Whitecaps host Montreal Impact (live on TSN and TSN 690 at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt). The Whitecaps will look to pick up where they left off and cement a place in the Western Conference playoff places, while Montreal will be hoping for a much different story after an extremely disappointing start to the MLS season. Winning the Canadian Championship was the bright spot so far this year for an Impact team that sits bottom of the Eastern Conference. The Form: The Whitecaps enter the match unbeaten in their last seven matches (Won 3, Tied 4) while the Impact have won just twice all season and have only picked up two points from their previous six matches on the road. Vancouver needed a late penalty from Pedro Morales to rescue a point at Philadelphia in their last match, despite leading the game 2-0 at PPL Park. The Whitecaps have been having no trouble scoring goals, but will need to tighten up defensively if they are to build on their excellent start to the year. The Caps havent lost in MLS since April 12 when they were beaten 1-0 by LA Galaxy in California. Vancouver are unbeaten against Eastern Conference opposition so far this season. After beating Toronto FC to be crowned Canadian champions, and winning at home to high flying New England, Montreals revival came to a crashing halt with a 4-2 loss at home to DC United two weeks ago. Things have improved for the Impact since they started the season by taking just three points from a possible 21 through their first seven matches, but they will need to be consistently strong between now and the end of the year if they are to have any chance of getting into the playoff race. The Impact are currently eight points outside the playoff places. With only 13 goals in 13 matches, the Impact are the lowest scoring team in MLS, but the signing of Jack McInerney has proved to be an excellent addition. The Big Question: Will Montreals defence be able to cope with Vancouvers speedsters? The Whitecaps have caused plenty of problems for their opponents this year with lots of attacking options, and Chilean midfielder Pedro Morales proving to be the perfect set-up man. Striker Erik Hurtado has been leading the way in recent games with five goals in his last five matches in all competitions. Hurtado has shown the ability to cause defenders all kinds of problems with his strength and speed, and the Whitecaps can also call upon the pace of Kekuta Manneh and Darren Mattocks. In their last match before the break, Montreal defended poorly and conceded four goals at home to DC United, however, in their previous game, they managed to keep a clean sheet against a strong New England team. If the Impact defence isnt switched on from minute one, the Whitecaps young guns could take advantage. Montreal coach Frank Klopas has the chance to make changes in defence if he chooses, with the recent additions of Futty Danso from Portland, and former Sporting KC man Mechack Jerome. The Lineup: There are a few decisions for Whitecaps coach Carl Robinson to make with regards to his starting lineup. Captain Jay DeMerit came off injured in the tie at Philadelphia and is sidelined for six weeks. Robinson will choose from Andy OBrien, Carlyle Mitchell, Johnny Leveron and Christian Dean to fill the two central defensive places. At the other end of the pitch, it is possible the Caps could start with Mattocks and Manneh supporting Hurtado. Robinson has said he would love to see the three players start together at some stage and it is possible that this could be the occasion to try it. If not, one of the Whitecaps two Uruguayans, Sebastien Fernandez or Nicolas Mezquida, could get the start. With Marco Di Vaio and Justin Mapp expected to miss the match through injury, the Impact will be relying on McInerney and Andres Romero to provide a goal scoring edge. Both players have been in good form of late. McInerney has four goals in eight MLS appearances since joining the Impact from Philadelphia, and Romero had scored in his last three MLS matches. The most interesting decision for Montreal will be who Klopas decides to play in defence, and whether or not either Danso or Jerome will be handed an Impact debut. In midfield, Klopas could give a debut to 30-year-old Spaniard Gorka Larrea who played 90 minutes in the reserves against Harrisburg City Islanders last Friday. The Odds: This is only the third meeting between the two sides in Major League Soccer, with the Whitecaps having won both of the previous encounters. Montreal havent played a league match in Vancouver since losing 2-0 in the clubs inaugural MLS game in March 2012, but the Impact were celebrating after their last match at BC Place. A 2-2 tie last spring in the second leg of the Amway Canadian Championship saw Montreal lift the Voyageurs Cup. With Vancouvers strong home form and Montreals difficulties on the road the Whitecaps will be strong favourites heading in. Carl Robinsons team has lost just once at BC Place this season, while the Impact are yet to win away. Where to Watch: Join me along with Jason de Vos and Perry Solkowski for all of the action from BC Place. We are live on TSN with the pre-match show starting at 9:30pm et/6:30pm pt.

BOSTON – Its not yet June and thanks to the advent of the two wild card spots in each league, only two of 30 teams can make the argument to their fans that theyre out of the playoff hunt. With apologies to the Arizona Diamondbacks, a club that made offseason moves with the intention of contending and will now give new hire Tony La Russa time to assess the damage of a disastrous start, the Houston Astros and the Chicago Cubs have dropped far enough in the standings to consider the postseason unachievable. The Cubs have a prized piece at the front of their starting rotation. He is 29-year-old Jeff Samardzija, the ace of a bad baseball team whos expected to top the wish list of teams looking to bolster their pitching staffs ahead of the important games of August and September. Dont let the numbers fool you. Samardzija is good. The Cubs are not good. He is winless in nine starts this season despite posting a big league-best 1.62 ERA. In fact, Samardzijas winless skid stretches to 16 if you go back to last year. Chicago, with its impotent offence, doesnt score him any runs. An even crueler fate: Samardzija pitched seven scoreless innings against the Yankees on Wednesday afternoon at Wrigley Field, departing with a 2-0 lead, only to watch his closer and defence implode in the ninth. The Cubs lost in extra innings. Word around the Blue Jays is if the club is in contention approaching the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, ownership would be willing to loosen the purse strings to acquire additional help. Toronto needs help in its starting rotation with two spots in perpetual question. J.A. Happ is filling one at the moment. Somebody will fill the other come Saturday. Its expected to be Liam Hendriks, a former Minnesota Twin whos off to a strong start at Triple-A Buffalo. Blue Jays catcher Dioner Navarro was a Cub last year and caught Samardzija 10 times. "Hes really good," said Navarro. "I think hes one of those guys the numbers last year didnt show what hes capable of. Hes a horse. He wants the ball. He wants to win. Hes still got that football mentality. Hes that type of player." Samardzija features a sinking fastball, which he pumps up at 91 miles per hour at the low end, 97 at the high end. Hell spike a splitter; he throws a backdoor slider and a cut fastball. "Hes got everything, man," said Navarro. "Hes got it." Should Samardzija land in the American League East, a real possibility considering the interest hell likely draw not just from the Blue Jays but also the injury-riddled Yankees and maybe others, hell quickly find himself in a home run-friendly division with home run-friendly parks and lineups that stretch deep. Its not the National League Central. Navarro doesnt think he would have a problem adjusting. "I believe so," said Navarro. "I think hes a strikeout pitcher. Hes a swing and miss type of guy. I believe that hes got what it takes. I think the most important thing that hes got is hes a really competitive guy and he wants to win. Obviously hes going to have to make some adjustments coming from the NL Central to the American League East but I think hes going to be a huge asset if we get the opportunity to get him." The Cubs reported asking price for Samardzija in the offseason involved both top pitching prospects Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman. Needless to say that would be a steep price to pay. It may, however, be the going rate. With so many teams jumbled around the .500 mark and no sign of that changing in the foreseeable future, Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer should have a number of intriguing offers to peruse. If Cliff Lees elbow problem is anything serious for the Phillies, another potential chip comes off the market and Samardzijas price goes up further. How about that? The perpetually weak Cubs will be dealing from a position of strength. CHECK OUT THE PODCAST Episode 5 of The Baseball Podcast, #TBP, is available online. TSN 1050 contributors Richard Griffin of the Toronto Star and Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com and I discuss Fenway Park, the Blue Jays red hot offence, the persistent issues with the back end of the starting rotation, Jose Reyes defence and whether the media is too easy on general manager Alex Anthopoulos.

Cincinnati has lost back-to-back games in overtime, wasting a chance to take a commanding lead in their division.HOUSTON -- LaMarcus Aldridges son JJ, who turned 5 on Wednesday, texted him after the Portland Trail Blazers playoff win and told him he looked like Spider-Man on one of his dunks. To the Houston Rockets the Portland star probably looked like a superhero on more than just that one play. Aldridge continued his dominance against the Rockets, scoring 43 points to lift the Trail Blazers to a 112-105 victory and a 2-0 lead in the first-round playoff series. Aldridge has made the most of the return to his home state and put the Trail Blazers in control heading home for Game 3 in Portland on Friday. The former University of Texas star who grew up in Dallas laughed heartily and said maybe when asked if hed rather stay in the Lone Star state after the way hes played in the first two games. "(Leading) 2-0 going home feels great, but its not over," he said. "Were going to stay hungry, stay humble and go home and try to duplicate the same (success)." Aldridge became the first player with consecutive games of 43 points games in the playoffs since Tracy McGrady did it in April 2003 after scoring a career-high and franchise playoff-record 46 in an overtime win in Game 1. Hes also the first player Trail Blazers history to have two 40-point games in the post-season and his 89 points in a teams first two playoff games trail only Michael Jordan (1986, 1988) and Jerry West (1965) in the last 50 years. Hes helped the Trail Blazers win two road games to start a playoff series for just the second time in franchise history and the first since they took the first two against the Lakers in the 1977 Western Conference Finals. Damian Lillard made six free throws down the stretch to help out in the win. But the guard gave all the credit for the win to Aldridge. "What can they do to stop him? He was great once again, just like Game 1," Lillard said. "When a lot of guys couldnt get going and couldnt hit shots, he just carried us. He played like an MVP again." The Rockets spent the last two days of practice focused on how to slow Aldridge down, but nothing they did seemed to faze the 6-foot-11 player. "We tried changing it up tonight," Houston coach Kevin McHale said. "Tonight, he was picking and popping and moving and we were having trouble running people at him. We were trying to get the ball out of his hands as much as we could." Aldridge credited coach Terry Stotts for moving him around early in the game to help evadee Houstons double-teams.dddddddddddd "I made tough shots," Aldridge said. "I dont think too much was easy tonight. I just got in that rhythm and started making shots." James Harden knocked down a 3-pointer with about 30 seconds left to get the Rockets within 3. Lillard made two free throws before Harden fouled out about 10 seconds later. Mo Williams and Lillard both made a pair of free throws after that to secure the win. Lillard finished with 18 points. Dwight Howard was unstoppable early and scored 25 points in the first half, but managed just seven in the second half. After missing 20 shots in Game 1, Harden promised a better performance in this game. But it was much of the same as he was 6 of 19 and finished with 18 points. "We dont have our same flow, our same mojo that we had throughout the season," Harden said. "We dont have our same swag ... weve got to get that back." The Rockets trailed by nine points before a 5-0 run cut the lead to 102-98 with about a minute left. Both teams made a pair of free throws after that before Lillard found Wesley Matthews wide open for a reverse layup to make it 106-100 with 33 seconds left. A one-handed dunk by Aldridge over Omer Asik gave Portland a 96-87 lead with about five minutes left. With Aldridge on the bench to start the fourth, Houston scored the first four points of the period to cut the lead to two points, but Williams and Dorell Wright made consecutive 3s to make it 89-81 midway through the quarter. Aldridge made 10 of Portlands first 14 points of the second half to help the Trail Blazers build a 67-58 lead with about eight minutes left in the quarter. Houston scored the next nine points, with the last five from Chandler Parsons, to tie it at 67 a couple of minutes later. Portland an 83-77 led entering the fourth quarter. The Trail Blazers scored seven straight points to take a 53-51 lead late in the second quarter, but Beverleys basket at the buzzer tied it at halftime. Howard scored Houstons first 13 points and had 19 -- with five dunks -- by the end of the first quarter to help the Rockets to a 31-23 lead. NOTES: Hall of Famer Hakeem Olajuwon, who has been working with Howard this week, watched the game from a courtside seat. ... Wright finished with 15 points. ... Howards 19 points in the first quarter were a franchise-high for a quarter in the playoffs, surpassing the 18 Olajuwon scored against Utah on May 5, 1995.

Lewis Hamilton describes the Monaco Grand Prix as his Achilles heel and its easy to see why. Nine attempts, one victory - and that was eight years ago. Im definitely not weak round there but Ive won once and Ive had the car to win the last three years, the world champion tells Sky F1s Martin Brundle. Im keen to go back there and do some surgery.So, as Hamilton prepares for another shot at glory in the principality this weekend, where has it all gone wrong over the years? 2007 Monaco GPGrid: 2nd; Race: 2ndYoung Lewis entered his first Monaco GP with a two-point lead in the championship and a fearsome record around the streets of Monte Carlo, winning in GP2 and F3.In Formula 1, he had to settle for second best behind McLaren team-mate Fernando Alonso - though the world champions victory was shrouded in controversy. How Hamilton lost Monaco 2015 How Lewis Hamiltons infamous pit-stop lost him the 2015 race The FIA launched an investigation of McLaren for giving out team orders after Hamilton revealed he had been asked to ease off. Ron Dennis insisted that while he wouldnt allow his two drivers to race and risk a comfortable one-two, this was team strategy rather than the banned orders.McLaren were later cleared of any wrongdoing and Hamilton, who had now been joined on 38 points by Alonso, said: He has No 1 on his car and I have No 2. I am the second driver and so I must accept that and respect that for the team. 2008 Monaco GPGrid: 3rd; Race: 1stThough Ferrari had started the 2008 edition as overwhelming favourites, Hamilton produced one of the defining drives of his career so far to take the chequered flag in an incident-packed grand prix.The Englishman, starting third in the torrential rain, snuck up the inside of Kimi Raikkonen at Turn One but an error around Tabac soon after saw him puncture a rear tyre. The crash eventually worked in Hamiltons favour, however, with McLarens refuelling allowing him to come in for his final pit-stop six laps after his main rivals, by which point the dry tyre was perfect for the improving conditions. Whens the Monaco GP on Sky? F1s showpiece event is live and exclusive on Sky Sports Overtaking was almost impossible on the river of a track but it was Hamiltons race-craft and tactical savvy in the most unforgiving of environments that earned him the plaudits.At his age, Lewis can win this race many times, Jackie Stewart said, as reported by The Times. This is the first, I hope, of many victories for him in Monaco so that he can join the greats of Formula 1. 2009 Monaco GPGrid: 19th; Race: 12thJust six months after sealing his first F1 crown in the most dramatic of circumstances, Hamilton only had nine points ahead of round six of the 2009 season.And despite impressing in practice, a disastrous mistake in Q1 ruined the world champions weekend as he broke the rear suspension of his McLaren after smashing into the Mirabeau tyre wall. He qualified in 16th but started the race in front of only Timo Glock due to a penalty for a gearbox change, and was never in contention.What a difference a year makes. 2010 Monaco GPGrid: 5th; Race: 5thWith world champion Jenson Button joining him at McLaren and leading the championship heading to Monaco, the pressure was on Hamilton to perform.However, his team struggled with reliability issues all weekend. Button had to retire after a cover was left in his air cooling system while Hamilton could only qualify and finish fifth.At one point a clearly frustrated Lewis, who eventually held off the charging Alonso, asked his team: What the hell? Do you want me to race these guys or look after the car? 2011 Monaco GPGrid: 9th; Race: 6thA weekend to forget for an extremely crash-happy Hamilton. Coming into the grand prix 41 points behind Sebastian Vettel, Hamilton could only manage ninth on the grid after having his final Q3 time docked for cutting a chicane.His feud with Felipe Massa was ongoing and the pair collided twice come race day, once at the hairpin before the Brazilians race was ended after an ambitious high-speed move from Hamilton through the tunnel. The Brit was given a drive-through penalty for the first of those incidents, and was later penalised again for ending Pastor Maldonados race.Throw in an accident involving Hamilton, Jaime Alguersuari, Adrian Sutil, and Vitaly Petrov and his nightmare was complete, his only solace being the eight points gathered.Hamilton criticised the stewards after the race, telling the BBC: Out of six races, Ive been to the stewards five times. Its a joke, its an absolute frickin joke. 2012 Monaco GPGrid: 3rd; Race: 5thHis last Monaco GP as a McLaren driver, Hamilton started the race from third after Michael Schumachers grid penalty, and was able to maintain his position for much of the afternoon.But Lewis and his team were out-thought and out-paced, first by Ferrari and Alonso, who watched his rivals pit before putting in the two fastest sectors of the race, and then by Red Bull and Vettel. Both would rejoin the track ahead of Hamilton.Only four seconds separated race winner Mark Webber and Hamilton at the chequered flag. 2013 Monaco GPGrid: 2nd; Race: 4thQualifying on the front row behind Mercedes team-mate Nico Rosberg, things were finally looking up for Hamilton in the principality.But after a crash from Massa at Saint Devote led to a Safety Car, Hamilton dropped two places as he was forced to pit on the same lap as Rosberg. He slowed down too much upon entry and was never able to catch the Red Bulls.It wasnt the teams fault, it was my mistake today, Hamilton told Sky Sports F1. I just wasnt good enough. 2014 Monaco GPGrid: 2nd; Race: 2ndIts fair to say the tension between the Mercedes pair was high prior to this race. First, there was Hamilton using an unauthorised engine mode to hold off Rosberg at the previous grand prix in Spain. Then, in Monacos Q3, Rosberg ruined his team-mates final flying lap after causing yellow flags for reversing back onto the track following a mistake at Mirabeau.Sundays events proved to be slightly less dramatic, with Rosberg leading from start to finish around the street circuit. Still, Hamiltons anger was clear over radio at his teams failure to give him a better chance at victory with a riskier pit strategy.Hamilton then suffered more frustration - and irritation - when he complained of visibility problems with his left eye in the closing stages, only just holding off Daniel Ricciardo.The ill-feeling in the Mercedes camp was evident on the podium afterwards with Rosberg and Hamilton failing to acknowledge each other. Hamilton was left speechless as a pit stop during the safety car cost him victory in Monaco 2015 Monaco GPGrid: 1st; Race: 3rdThe biggest calamity of them all. Having just signed a new contract at Mercedes, Hamilton duly dominated proceedings in Monaco, opening up a 24-second gap to Rosberg in the race after comfortably securing pole.But after Max Verstappens crash forced a Virtual Safety Car and Safety Car a nervous Hamilton, of the view that his rivals would be fitting the option tyre, asked Mercedes to bring him in. His team dallied and later agreed, believing they would be able to pit the race leader and return him back in first. What a miscalculation it was. Lewis Hamilton at the Monaco GP Year Grid Race 2007 2nd 2nd 2008 3rd 1st 2009 19th 12th 2010 5th 5th 2011 9th 6th 2012 3rd 5th 2013 2nd 4th 2014 2nd 2nd 2015 1st 3rd Both Rosberg and Vettel hadnt stopped and Hamilton immediately knew upon rejoining in third that he would be made to wait another year.Whats happened guys? Guys, whats happened? he frantically said over team radio. Ive lost this race, havent I?

PHOENIX -- Bronson Arroyo got the best of Stephen Strasburg -- on the mound and at the plate. Arroyo, with a fastball that barely reaches 88 mph, scattered seven hits in his 16th career complete game, leading the Arizona Diamondbacks to a 3-1 victory over the Washington Nationals Tuesday night. "Thats the great thing about baseball," Arroyo said. "I dont really have to beat Stephen, I just have to beat their batters for the most part." He also had a pair of hits off Strasburg, scoring the go-ahead run after the second one. "I just try to outthink him and try to guess what hes throwing," Arroyo said. "... I got lucky today. I hit two balls soft, but one of them turned out to be a huge hit and started off an inning that won us the ball game." Arroyo, a free agent signing in the off-season who was slowed by a sore back in spring training, struck out seven and walked one. Of his 110 pitches, 79 were strikes. "An incredible strike ratio," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. "He kept them off-balance, threw a great game for us. Beyond that, got a couple of hits, ran the bases well again, fielded a good safety squeeze bunt, held the guy at first, got out of that inning. I mean, thats complete." Paul Goldschmidt doubled twice, the second one driving in the go-ahead runs in the fifth. Over his last three starts, Arroyo (4-2) has allowed one earned run in 23 1-3 innings. He also became the second pitcher to get two hits off Strasburg. The other was Tim Hudson. Strasburg (3-3) went seven innings, allowing three runs on eight hits, striking out six with no walks. "Overall I thought he itched fine," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "Bronson was better tonight though. All over the zone with all the pitches that he had, he kept everybody off balance." The Diamondbacks won for just the fourth time in 17 games at Chase Field this season. "You just want to get it done at home to show theres not somee sort of jinx going on," Arroyo said.dddddddddddd Washington scored first when Wilson Ramos led off the second with a single and Ian Desmond tripled. Desmond was stranded when Danny Espinosa struck out, Tyler Moore walked and Kevin Frandsen grounded into a double play. Arizona tied it at 1 in the fourth. Goldschmidt led off with a double down the right-field line, then scored when Miguel Montero singled sharply. In the fifth, Arroyo led off with his second single of the night. Martin Prado -- 4 for 20 in his career against Strasburg to that point -- singled up the middle to put runners on first and second, and Goldschmidt drove in both runners with a soaring double to deep centre. It was the major league-leading 55th hit for Goldschmidt. "Curveball," Strasburg said. "It started getting a little windy and dry and spun out of my hands. As soon as it came out of my hand I knew it was probably not going to be good." Washington -- without top hitters Bryce Harper, Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche -- didnt threaten again until the eighth. Pinch-hitter Nate McLouth singled past the first baseman Goldschmidt, a play that could have been ruled an error, then Anthony Rendons two-out single put runners at first and second. Jayson Werth flied out to left to end the inning. After getting game-tying and winning ninth-inning homers off Addison Reed in the ninth in their 6-5 win in the series opener Monday night, the Nationals didnt get a runner on base in the final inning against Arroyo. NOTES: Washington is 1-4 with one game left on its trip out West. ... Arizonas other home wins were April 1 over San Francisco, April 25 over Philadelphia and April 30 over Colorado. ... In the series finale on Wednesday, Washington starts Doug Fister (0-1, 10.38) against Brandon McCarthy (1-6, 5.66). ... If Arizona wins Wednesday, it would be the first series victory for the Diamondbacks at home this season.

Jamie Carragher says Mamadou Sakho has let himself and Liverpool down badly over an alleged anti-doping violation. Sakho, 26, is being investigated by UEFA for allegedly failing a drugs test prior to the Reds Europa League second-leg tie at Manchester United on March 17.The centre-back has not been banned by Liverpool but will not be selected during the investigation, which is understood to be into the use of a fat-burning substance. Sky Sports football expert Carragher says serious questions must be asked of Sakho and any professional footballer who turns in a failed sample.Its a nightmare for the player,  former Liverpool star Carragher told Sky Sports News HQ.I think hes let himself and the club down badly, because hes become a really important player.Theres serious questions to be asked of him.Hes had a great campaign. Hes one of the leaders of the team now, certainly within that run, thinking about how well he played in the Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund games. Its now how Liverpool fill that void.For a professional footballer, as in any sport, its not acceptable. Carragher, who made over 700 appearances for Liverpool during a 19-year senior career, also questioned whether footballers are given spot-doping tests regularly enough. Jamie Carragher has questioned whether players are tested regularly enough He said: How much is enough, or too much? As a player it would happen two or three times a season. People might say thats not enough.But there seems to be a lot more of that goes on in other sports, not something youd expect from football.

If unclaimed, the player would then land on Buffalos season-ending injured reserve list.At that point, the Bills could begin negotiating an injury settlement to buy out the four years left on Williams contract. He is due a guaranteed $5.2 million base salary next season. Another option would be releasing the player before he is due a roster bonus in March.Williams hurt his left calf in practice Thursday, and did not play in a 24-17 loss at Denver on Sunday. Williams was present in the locker room on Monday but gave no indication that the move was forthcoming.The Bills (7-6), who host Green Bay on Sunday, filled Williams roster spot by signing receiver Deonte Thompson off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad. Thompson had 15 catches for 147 yards and also returned kickoffs in 13 games split over the 2012-13 seasons with Baltimore.Its a sudden turn of events for the Buffalo-born Williams, who looked forward to enjoying a homecoming after the Bills gave up a sixth-round draft pick to acquire him in a trade with Tampa Bay in April.Williams practice time began diminishing in training camp, and then his playinng time dropped over the past two months.dddddddddddd.He was inactive in four of Buffalos past eight games. And his last catch was an 8-yarder in a 17-14 win at Detroit on Oct. 15.Overall, he had eight catches for 142 yards and a touchdown this season. Thats a dramatic drop-off for a player who topped 60 catches and 750 yards in each of his first three NFL seasons.Williams had difficulty understanding the reasons over his lack of playing time.I dont know, Im not the coach, Williams said last week. Everybodys confused. Even me.In October, Williams agent Hadley Engelhard sought the Bills permission to negotiate a trade for his client. Williams, however, intervened by saying he wanted to remain in Buffalo.On Monday, coach Doug Marrone said Williams proved to be the odd-man out after the Bills drafted Sammy Watkins in the first round, and second-year receiver Robert Woods claimed the No. 2 job in training camp.Obviously, for Mike, Im sure its a frustration, Marrone said. Ive talked to him about that quite a bit during the year. Hes worked extremely hard despite that, and has done everything he can to get back on the field.Williams played under Marrone for part of the 2009 season at Syracuse before the two had a falling out. Williams didnt finish the season, and then elected to enter the draft, when he was selected in the fourth round by Tampa Bay.___AP NFL website: [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] and [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] [Only registered and activated users can see links Click here to register] ' ' '
