The world No. 1 Djokovic dismissed the fourth-seeded Wawrinka 7-6 (7-1), 3-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-0 on Friday. The 27-year-old Djokovic joins Roger Federer and Stefan Edberg as the only men in the Open Era to make five finals at the Aussie Open. He has won all four of his previous finals here, including two against Andy Murray. Djokovic will meet Murray in Sundays final. Murray advanced to his fourth final in the years first major with Thursdays 6-7 (6-8), 6-0, 6-3, 7-5 semifinal victory over seventh-seeded Tomas Berdych. Djokovic holds a 15-8 record over Murray. Djokovic and Wawrinka met for the third year in a row at Melbourne Park. Two years ago, Djokovic denied Wawrinka 12-10 in the fifth set of a fourth-round clash, but last year the Swiss got his revenge with a 9-7 fifth-set victory in the quarterfinals. Wawrinka captured his first Grand Slam title here a year ago by stunning Rafael Nadal in the final. Fans packed Rod Laver Arena on Friday in anticipation of another epic five-set match between Djokovic and Wawrinka. Their previous three grand slamm encounters had all gone the distance. Paddy Driscoll Jersey. Wawrinka broke serve in the seventh game -- prompting a racquet bash from Djokovic at the change of ends. But Djokovic was able to break right back to love for 4-4. The set progressed to a tiebreak, where Wawrinkas game fell apart. The 29-year-old Wawrinka won the second set in just 36 minutes. It was the first set that Djokovic had lost at this 2015 fortnight. Djokovic jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the third set, but Wawrinka found a way back to 3-3. A double fault by Wawrinka at 40-15 in the 10th game helped Djokovic win the set. The world No.1 appeared to have the match in hand when he went up a break early in the fourth. But yet again, Djokovic failed to put Wawrinka away. The Swiss came all the way back to win the set this time. Djokovic dominated the fifth set to record his 49th-match win at the Australian Open. Only Federer (75-12) and Edberg (56-10) have more victories at the hard-court major in the Open Era. In addition, Djokovic won his ninth straight match against players in the Top 10 of the Emirates ATP Rankings. His last loss to a member of the elite came against Federer in the 2014 Shanghai Rolex Masters semifinals. ' ' '

NEW YORK, N. Cheap Jerseys .Y. - Dick Parsons is hoping for a short stint running the Los Angeles Clippers, though ready to stay on as long as it takes. Moving the franchise away from Donald Sterling and to new ownership might require a lengthy fight, but its one Parsons thinks is worthwhile. "This is an issue thats actually bigger than just the Clippers, bigger than just the NBA in my judgment," Parsons said. "The whole world is kind of watching how, frankly, we as a country navigate our way through this crisis. So if I can help, Im happy to try." The NBA chose Parsons, a former Citigroup chairman and former Time Warner chairman and CEO, as interim CEO of the Clippers on Friday. Parsons will oversee the management of the franchise and represent it at owners meetings while the league tries to force Sterling to sell following his lifetime ban for making racist remarks. With Sterling barred from anything to do with the team or league, and team President Andy Roeser on an indefinite leave of absence, the league and Clippers worked together to find someone to lead the organization along with coach Doc Rivers. Parsons, who is black, met with Commissioner Adam Silver on Monday and accepted the position Thursday. He had gotten to know Silver, then the deputy commissioner, when Time Warner owned the Atlanta Hawks, and he supports what Silver is trying to do now in his first crisis since replacing David Stern in February. "Hes a good man and hes trying to do the right thing and hes trying to do it in the right way, and he could use some help," Parsons said during a phone interview. Parsons is currently a senior adviser at Providence Equity Partners and sits on the board of directors for the Commission on Presidential Debates. He has also been on President Barack Obamas economic advisory team. A graduate of the University of Hawaii, where he played basketball, Parsons earned a law degree from Albany Law School in 1971 and became a staff lawyer for New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller. He moved to Washington when Rockefeller was appointed vice-president, and also worked closely with President Gerald Ford. Parsons left the legal field in 1988 to become president, then chairman and CEO of Dime Bancorp, Inc. He was Time Warner chairman and CEO from 2002-08, then chairman of Citigroup from 2009-12. Silver said in a statement that Parsons "will bring extraordinary leadership and immediate stability to the Clippers organization." "Dicks credentials as a proven chief executive speak for themselves and I am extremely grateful he accepted this responsibility," Silver added. The owners advisory/finance committee has already held two conference calls since Silver banned Sterling, fined him $2.5 million and said he would urge owners to force Sterling to sell the franchise he has owned since 1981. That would require Sterling to be charged with violating the leagues constitution and bylaws, followed by a three-fourths vote of owners after a hearing. Sterlings estranged wife, Shelly, wants to keep her 50 per cent ownership stake in the team, her lawyer said Thursday, and Silver said so far the ban only applies to Donald Sterling. While that potential fight goes on, the Clippers are trying to stay focused on the playoffs following their most successful regular season ever. They are tied with the Oklahoma City Thunder entering Game 3 of their Western Conference semifinal series. Parsons said he wouldnt be involved in an ownership fight and hopes one wont even be necessary, that "cooler heads and rationality" would allow the NBA and the Clippers to work through the turmoil without a legal battle. He doesnt know how long that could take. "I know the NBA would love to get this done before the next season begins, but who knows whats going to happen? Its open ended," Parsons said. "Were here until sort of we can work our way through the point of transition." China Jerseys 2020 . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros. Stitched China Jerseys . Vincent Lamar Carter is no longer the lean, athletic dynamo who dazzled Raptors fans with eye-popping dunks that posterized even the leagues best defenders. https://www.chinasjerseys.com/ . Which is to say, the top of this years draft class is not as dynamic or exciting as the 2013 class of Nate MacKinnon, Sasha Barkov, Jonathan Drouin and Seth Jones and its not as strikingly promising as the highly-anticipated 2015 slate of Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Noah Hanifin.BLACKSBURG, Va. -- Following his teams victory over No. 17 Virginia Tech on Saturday, East Carolina coach Ruffin McNeill sought out his quarterback Shane Carden and they shared a lengthy embrace in the south end zone of Lane Stadium. The hug for Carden was well deserved. Carden threw three touchdown passes and scored a rushing touchdown with 16 seconds left to lead the Pirates to a 28-21 upset of the Hokies. The senior from Houston, Texas, completed 23 of 47 passes for 427 yards in carrying the Pirates to their first victory over a ranked team since 2009 when they beat then-No. 18 Houston 38-32 in Greenville, North Carolina. They also beat a ranked team on the road for the first time since 1996 when they topped then-No. 12 Miami 31-6. East Carolina (2-1) snapped a five-game losing streak to ranked opponents. "Coming back from adversity from last week (a 33-23 loss to South Carolina), thats what that hug was about," McNeill said. "Staying the course and believing what you believe in, thats what that hug was about. Getting it done as one heartbeat, one breath, one mind, one Pirate ... thats what that hug was about." The Pirates nearly squandered a three-touchdown lead. Virginia Tech (2-1), coming off a road win over then-No. 8 Ohio State, tied the game at 21 on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Michael Brewer to Cam Phillips with 1:20 left. But the Pirates, after doing little in the second half, needed just three plays to go 65 yards. Virginia Tech kicker Joey Slye kicked the ensuing kickoff out of bounds, giving the Pirates the ball at their 35. Then, Carden threw passes of 31 and 28 yards to Cam Worthy sandwiched around an illegal substitution penalty on the Hokies. He scored on a 1-yard run to lift the Pirates to the win. "Just believing," Carden said when asked how the Pirates rallied. "Just continuing to believe. We just made some routine plays. They were playing some good defence there in the second half and we couldnt get a lot going. But we just kept believing, believing in our coaches. "We got some good field position to start, and then Worthy made some big-time catches on that drive. When the game is on the line, youve got to make plays." Worthy finished with six catches for 224 yards for the Pirates. Carden threw touchdown passes on the Pirates first two possessions and three of their first four. ECU wasted little time in getting on the scoreboard, driving 75 yards in seven plays on the games first possession. The Pirates converted on third-and-2 from the Virginia Tech 27 when Cardens pass was batteed into the air and fell into the hands of Bryce Williams, who rumbled 22 yards to the Virginia Tech 5. Nike China Jerseys. Two plays later, Carden found Williams in the back of the end zone for a 4-yard scoring play to give the Pirates a 7-0 lead with 12:17 left in the first quarter. The Pirates struck again on their next possession. A 70-yard drive that took less than a minute ended when Carden found receiver Trevon Brown in the end zone for a 15-yard score. That gave the Pirates a 14-0 lead less than five minutes into the game. The Pirates took a 21-0 lead toward the end of the first quarter. Carden threw his third touchdown pass of the quarter, this one to receiver Isaiah Jones for 7 yards with 2:44 remaining in the quarter, to give ECU a 21-point edge. Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer refused to say the Hokies were suffering a letdown after their huge win over Ohio State last weekend and that led to their slow start. "Im not going to make that excuse," Beamer said. "I thought we were ready to play. We understood how exactly East Carolina was going to play. It wasnt a secret. They hit a couple of big plays against our defence, and offensively, we were sluggish getting started and then the defence is right back on the field. "It just wasnt a good start, but I thought we were ready to play. We had all the respect in the world for East Carolina. They did a great job. Theyre well coached, and theyve done a good job of recruiting. Theyve got some players there." Virginia Tech managed to cut into the ECU lead right before halftime. Mustering their best drive of the first half, the Hokies went 73 yards in eight plays and got on the board when Brewer threw a 21-yard touchdown pass to Ford, who made a one-handed grab. Officials reviewed the play to see if the ball hit the ground, but upheld the catch, and Virginia Tech cut the lead to 21-7 with 47 seconds remaining in the half. Brewer completed 30 of 56 passes for 298 yards, with three touchdowns and two interceptions for the Hokies. But it wasnt enough to lead the Hokies to what would have been their biggest comeback win under Beamer. "It just goes back to believing and the commitment to the team," McNeill said. "If it goes bad and you believe in that, you dont waiver when it goes bad. You dont think its all about you when it goes well. "There are three sides to this game, and you want all three sides working together at one. Thats where the commitment to our team and putting our team first showed. We stayed focused and never got down on ourselves." ' ' '

DUBLIN, Ireland -- Brian ODriscoll will leave behind Ronan OGara and become Irelands most capped rugby player when he runs out against Scotland at Lansdowne Road in the Six Nations on Sunday. Harrison Bader . ODriscoll was picked for his 129th test in an Ireland jersey on Friday, but he wont continue his world record midfield partnership with Gordon DArcy. DArcy was laid low by a stomach bug at the start of the week and has recovered, but Luke Marshall edged him in training and will start. The only other question marks were the wingers, and with plenty of choices coach Joe Schmidt went with Andrew Trimble over Fergus McFadden for his first cap since last summer, and Dave Kearney for his first Six Nations start, alongside his brother Rob, the fullback. Luke Fitzgerald was expected to start but injured his hip in training. As expected, Chris Henry has the No. 7 jersey with Sean OBrien out for four months after shoulder surgery, and scrumhalf Conor Murray starts in place of Eoin Reddan, who was ruled out with calf trouble. Red Schoendienst . -- Canadian Erik Bedard pitched into the fifth inning in his bid to win a spot in Tampa Bays rotation, helping the Rays beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-3 on Saturday. Whitey Herzog . Fielder ended 4-for-5 with a solo homer, while Avila was 4-for-4 with two runs scored for the Tigers, who put the brakes on a three-game skid and rebounded from a loss in Mondays opener. Victor Martinez and Austin Jackson both contributed two hits, an RBI and a run scored as Detroit maintained its healthy lead atop the AL Central. http://www.custommlbcardinalsjersey.com/ . The Flames are in the midst of a six-game slide (0-5-1), their longest losing streak since an 0-6-3 skid from Jan. 11-28, 2010. They havent won since Nov. 3 in Chicago and most recently went winless on a three-game homestand.(SportsNetwork.com) - The Utah Jazz will defend their two-game winning streak Monday night when they take on the Boston Celtics at EnergySolutions Arena. The Jazz finished off their recent road trip with a win over the Milwaukee Bucks, then returned home to demolish the Brooklyn Nets, 108-73, on Saturday night. Utah will host the Los Angeles Clippers and Golden State Warrior on this residency. Against the Nets on Saturday, Gordon Hayward scored 24 to lead the Jazz. Trey Burke added 19 points and Joe Ingles scored 16 for the Jazz, who have won three of their last five. Dante Exum started for the Jazz and tallied 13 points and four assists. The Jazz posted 23 assists on 42 made field goals. Generally when you do that, good things will happen, said Jazz head coach Quin Snyder. And we played pretty good on top of that tonight. Enes Kanter had 10 for the Jazz, who shot 53.2 percent from the field, including 13-of-29 on 3-pointers. Ingles and Burke each made four 3s. Exum finished 3-for-5 from long range. The Celtics will play game four of a five-game road trip on Monday. They started with back-to-back wins over the Portland Trail Blazers and Denver Nuggets, then fell to the jugggernaut known as the Golden State Warriors. Tyler Webb. . The Celtics were competitive in defeat, losing, 114-111, at Oracle Arena on Sunday. Jared Sullinger was the leading scorer for Boston, scoring 26 points, while Evan Turner filled the stat sheet with 19 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in the loss. They played great overall as a team, said Turner. We didnt do a good job of matching their runs sometimes. Boston trailed by 12 at the start of the fourth quarter, and the Celtics could not get within striking distance in the fourth as Golden State maintained a healthy advantage throughout the frame until late. Turners 3-pointer cut the deficit to seven in the final minute, but Klay Thompson answered at the other end with a wing trey. Boston followed with seven points over a 33-second span to close the gap to three, 112-109. However, Thompson sealed it at the line on a pair of free throws with 3.3 seconds left. The Celtics finish this trek on Wednesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves. Boston had a six-game series winning streak snapped by the Jazz on Feb. 24 of last year. The two squads have split the previous eight encounters in Salt Lake City. ' ' '

SAO PAULO - Croatias Dejan Lovren says organizers may as well give the World Cup to Brazil right now after he conceded a controversial penalty in his sides 3-1 defeat to the host nation. Antone Exum Jersey . Brazil striker Fred went down in the penalty area under slight contact from Lovren in the 71st minute, allowing Neymar to convert a spot kick that gave Brazil a decisive 2-1 lead in Thursdays tournament opener. Lovren said referee Yuichi Nishimuras decision was a "big shame" and that "if it is like this, then we can give the World Cup directly to Brazil." His coach Niko Kovac described the decision as "shameful", while other Croatia players also expressed outrage. Fellow defender Vedran Corluka said the penalty was "embarrassing" and that "everyone saw that every 50-50 decision" went Brazils way. Gordy Soltau Jersey . Paul, MN (SportsNetwork. Tom Rathman Jersey . PAUL, Minn. http://www.custom49ersjersey.com/custom-rickey-jackson-jersey-large-1568d.html .com) - Wimbledon runner-up Eugenie Bouchard notched a win, while second-seeded two-time champion Ana Ivanovic, third- seeded Australian Open runner-up Dominika Cibulkova and fifth seed Sabine Lisicki all exited the draw at the Generali Ladies Linz tennis event.The Montreal Impact are heading into hostile territory for their upcoming CONCACAF Champions League matchup. The Impact will need to contend with the Central American heat along with a raucous crowd in El Salvador when the Major League Soccer squad takes on C.D. FAS on Wednesday. Due to strict CONCACAF stadium requirements, FAS is unable to compete on its usual turf in Santa Ana. Instead, the match will be held in the substantially larger Estadio Cuscatlan, a 53,400-seater in the nations capital. Knowing just how loud and disruptive the FAS faithful can be, Impact midfielder Maxim Tissot is preparing for an intense atmosphere. "I heard about them, and its intimidating," Tissot said in a recent interview. "Itll be tough there, with both the opposing team and the referees. We have to be ready." In the clubs prior Champions League appearances in 2008 and 2013, Montreal travelled to Nicaragua, Mexico, Honduras, Trinidad and Tobago, and Guatemala. The Impact are 2-1-1 all-time in the Champions League in Central America. This will be the clubs first visit to El Salvador — Central Americas smallest nation — where the fans are known for their passion and sometimes unruly behaviour. In addition, Impact manager Frank Klopas will have to watch the match from the press box. Two weeks ago, when 10-man Montreal beat FAS 1-0 at Saputo Stadium to take a three-point lead at the top of their group, Klopas was ejected for leaving his technical area late in the game. The ejection came shortly after defender Hassoun Camara was shown a straight red card for a studs-up slide tackle on FAS midfielder Raul Renderos. Camara will also miss Wednesdays match due to suspension. After the ejections, FAS pressed for the equalizer, but could not capitalize with the man advantage. Striker Marco Di Vaio had the games lone goal. "Were going with confidence to El Salvador because we know that its going to be an important game for us," Di Vaio said. "We have to go there to try to win. We arrive there with more confidence for sure because we came out of a bad time and we know that everything now is simpler." Montreals meagre victory at home against the groups weakest team could be its undoing. The Impacts offensive woes proved costly lastt year when goal differential was a factor in their group stage elimination. Tarvarius Moore Jersey. This fall, Montreal (1-0-0) will finish group play with a home-and-away series against the New York Red Bulls, the third and final team in Group 3. New York has yet to play a Champions League match this year. Only the winner of the group will advance to the eight-team knockout stage. FAS (0-1-0) is one of the most popular soccer teams in El Salvador. With 17 national titles, it is the countrys most decorated club. FAS is currently sixth in the Salvadoran Premier League with four points from three games. In 1979, the club won the CONCACAF Champions Cup in what later became the Champions League. Since the tournament changed name and format in 2008, FAS has never made it past the group stage in three occasions. On Wednesday, FAS will look for another standout performance from goakeeper Luis Contreras, who made six saves against the Impact two weeks ago. If not for Contreras, Montreal would likely have run away with the game early on. FAS will also benefit from a full team, which wasnt the case at Saputo Stadium. Due to visa issues, the team from Santa Ana travelled to Canada with just 14 players and without its head coach. The Impact, meanwhile, will have a slightly different look for the road game. Montreal finally added Argentine midfielder Ignacio Piatti to its roster after a lengthy courting process. Piatti made his first start for the club on Saturday before being substituted shortly after halftime. His arrival may not help the struggling team in MLS play, but the 29-year-old could help Montreal make a push in the Champions League. The Champions League is an annual club tournament that involves 24 teams from North America, Central America, and the Caribbean. Montreal is representing Canada in the competition after winning the Amway Canadian Championship in June. Notes: The Impact trained in Miami on Monday before leaving for El Salvador on Tuesday. … The distance between Montreal and San Salvador is 3,825 kilometres. … In 2008-09, when still in the North American Soccer League, the Impact reached the Champions League quarter-finals. … Montreal ended a seven-game losing streak in MLS with a 1-0 victory over Chicago on Saturday.

Wimbledon, England (SportsNetwork. Mike McGlinchey Super Bowl Jersey .com) - Top-seeded Novak Djokovic and reigning champion Andy Murray were a pair of easy opening-round winners on Centre Court at The Championships, Wimbledon. The former world No. 1 Djokovic won the first 11 games in steamrolling Kazakhstans Andrey Golubev 6-0, 6-1, 6-4 in a mere 87 minutes at the famed All England Club, while the third-seeded Murray also played very clean tennis in taking care of Belgian David Goffin 6-1, 6-4, 7-5. Murray popped eight aces in the predicable just-over-two-hour affair versus Goffin. The French Open runner-up Djokovic titled here in 2011 and was last years Wimbledon runner-up to his good friend Murray. Djokovic, playing his first grass-court tennis of the year, is the top seed at this fortnight, despite being ranked second in the world behind French Open champion and two-time Wimbledon winner Rafael Nadal. "It was a great start," Djokovic said after moving on Monday. Up next for the six-time Grand Slam titlist will be 35-year-old Czech veteran Radek Stepanek. Murray has won 14 straight matches at the AEC, where he captured an Olympic gold medal in 2012 before giving Great Britain its first male Wimbledon singles champion in 77 years last year. Murray entered and exited Centre Court to standing ovations on Day 1. "It was nice," Murray said. "I was nervous this morning, nervous yesterday. Walking through brings back a lot of good memories. I got a nice round of applause and once you sit down in a chair its time to get ready for this year and move on from last year." Among those in the Royal Box for Murrays match were his father and grandparents and former NBA superstar Shaquille ONeal. Murrays new coach, former womens Wimbledon champion Amelie Mauresmo, sat in the front row of the guest box. Up next for Murray will be 23-year-old Slovenian Blaz Rola, who was the 2013 NCAA singles champion while playing at The Ohio State University. Sixth-seeded former Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych joined Djokovic and Murray in the round of 64 with a come-from-behind 6-7 (5-7), 6-1, 6-4, 6-3 victory over Romanian veteran Victor Hanescu, while seventh-seeded David Ferrer held off fellow Spaniard Pablo Carreno Busta 6-0, 6-7 (3-7), 6-1, 6-1. Meanwhile, rising Bulgarian star Grigor Dimitrov eased past disappointing American Ryan Harrison 7-6 (7-1), 6-3, 6-2 and 12th-seeded Latvian and French Open semifinalist Ernests Gulbis topped Estonian Jurgen Zopp 7-6 (9-7), 7-5, 7-6 (12-10). Dimitrov captured his first-ever grass-court title at The Queens Club in London two weeks ago. Sixteenth-seeded Italian Fabio Fognini went the distance to edge out American journeyman Alex Kuznetsov, 2-6, 1-6, 6-4, 6-1, 9-7, in 3 hours, 11 minutes on Court 18. In other action involving seeds, No. 17 Russian Mikhail Youzhny routed Brit James Ward 6-2, 6-2, 6-1; Aussie Marinko Matosevic served-and-volleyed his way past No. 18 Spaniard Fernando Verdasco 6-4, 4-6, 6-4, 6-2; No. 20 South African Kevin Anderson dismissed Slovenian Aljaz Bedene 6-3, 7-5, 6-2; No. 21 Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov beat Aussie Samuel Groth 7-5, 7-6 (7-2), 7-6 (7-5); Argentine Leonardo Mayer upended No. 25 Italian Andreas Seppi 6-3, 2-6, 4-6, 6-4, 6-4; No. 26 Croat Marin Cilic got past Frances Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4, 6-7 (2-7), 6-2, 6-1; No. 27 Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut topped American two-time NCAA singles champion Steve Johnson 6-3, 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 7-5; and Dutchman Robin Haase doused No. 31 Canadian Vasek Pospisil 7-6 (8-6), 4-6, 7-5, 6-3. The surging Bautista Agut captured his first-ever ATP-level title, on grass, last week in The Netherlands. Several other men advanced, including Stepanek, Rola, Frenchmen Jeremy Chardy and Gilles Simon, Aussie Bernard Tomic, former Aussie Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis, and German Benjamin Becker, who was the runner-up in The Netherlands last week. Some action was suspended because or rain, as 14th-seeded French star Jo- Wilfried Tsonga was leading Austrian lefty Jurgen Melzer 6-1, 3-6, 3-6, 6-2, 5-4 and Sam Querrey was ahead of fellow American Bradley Klahn 6-7 (5-7), 6-4, 6-1, 6-5 when rain started to fall just after 8 p.m. local time. Opening-round matches will come Tuesday for the second-seeded Nadal and seven- time Wimbledon champ Roger Federer. The 14-time Grand Slam winner Nadal will take on Slovak Martin Klizan, while the fourth-seeded former No. 1 and 17-time major titlist Federer will encounter Italian Paolo Lorenzi.

We were in control, said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose team is 12 points behind leader Chelsea and has yet to register a win against a side outside the bottom seven.Chile forward Alexis Sanchez scored for the fourth straight league game to give Arsenal a 63rd-minute lead, only for Gylfi Sigurdsson to equalize with a stunning free kick and Bafetimbi Gomis to grab the winner barely 90 seconds after coming on as a substitute.Spurs suffered another hangover after their Europa League commitments, losing at home to Stoke to fall to 12th in the standings and increase the scrutiny on new manager Mauricio Pochettino.We need to improve quickly because you never have a long time in football, Pochettino said.

TAMPA, Fla. Tom Myers Jersey . -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed centre Tyler Johnson to a three-year contract. The team announced the news Friday. Johnson and teammate Ondrej Palat are finalists for the NHLs top rookie award. Theyre joined by Nathan MacKinnon of the Colorado Avalanche in the running for the Calder Trophy.

Left-handed reliever Boone Logan agreed to a $16.5 million, three-year contract on Friday, a person familiar with the negotiations told The Associated Press.CORK, Ireland -- Graeme McDowell birdied four of his closing eight holes to join two-time runner-up Robert Rock in the lead early on day two of the Irish Open on Friday. Both players shot 5-under-par 66 to move to 8 under for the tournament in superb scoring conditions at the Fota Island course. McDowell, looking to win the Irish Open for the first time, birdied three holes in succession from his 11th, and birdied his 15th. It was his lowest 36-hole tally on European Tour in 15 months, since he was 11 under en route to a tie for third in last years Cadillac Championship at Doral.

"It is more to do with the time of year (for me), as I played well at the start of the year but then struggled, and your confidence takes a bit of a bashing. But then you work hard and I seem to start to play well again and it all turns around," he said. Italys Marco Crespi (67) and Englands Matthew Nixon (65) shared third place in the clubhouse on 7 under.

LONDON, Ont. John Shonk Jersey Store . -- Montreal Canadiens prospect Nathan Beaulieu and his father, former Sarnia Sting coach Jacques Beaulieu, have pleaded guilty to assault and were granted conditional discharges. They were charged with assault in April after an altercation at a house party that left two people with minor injuries. Lawyer Patrick Ducharme said the ruling will allow the men to continue their hockey careers. "That means that there is no conviction registered," Ducharme said. "The court accepts their taking responsibility for it, but instead of convicting the accused they gave each of them a discharge. The Canadiens took Beaulieu 17th overall in the 2011 NHL draft. He played six games with Montreal last season, recording two assists. Jacques Beaulieu was fired as general manager and coach of the OHLs Sting in late May, after he was charged with assault. Co-owner Rob Ciccarelli said at the time that "the reasons for his dismissal are not related to the on-ice performance of our hockey club." Jack May Jersey Store .

Lulay played fairly well in his first game back in almost a year, but left the field clutching his throwing shoulder with less than a minute remaining after getting hit. "It was an absolute joy to be back out there and earn a win with my teammates last night.

TORONTO – The debate over chemistry, whether it exists in baseball and, if so, to what degree it matters, will likely never be completely settled. Chris Jones Jersey . The question gets asked often these days, whether these Blue Jays get along better this year than they did in 2013. The assumption seems to be that they do because theyre winning more than theyre losing. J.A. Happ, who along with Mark Buehrle are the only two current Jays to take part in an on-field world championship celebration, summed it up. “You just feed off each other,” he said. “The musics better. The jokes are better. Everythings better when youre winning. Thats kind of the way it goes. People start getting louder. You feed off that. You feed off peoples personalities.” Its a chicken and egg deal. Winning is the egg, which begets the chicken that is chemistry. More to the point, manager John Gibbons has settled into a number of roster combinations that are producing results. Helping him in this endeavour is a cadre of players who began the season at Triple-A Buffalo. “Weve got a handful of them,” said manager John Gibbons. “We brought [Steve] Tolleson up to be the second baseman against left-handers. Hes doing a great job with that. Of course Gose and Pillar, filling in for Colby, have been a pretty good combo there. Kratzys been up and down a couple of times, but hes fit in. Theyre all contributing.” Juan Francisco, signed off the scrap heap when the Milwaukee Brewers decided late in spring they didnt want to pay him despite an 18-home run season last year, is hitting .280/.370/.602 (.973 OPS) with eight home runs. Anthony Gose entered Mondays action with a slash line of .296/.457/.407. Three of his eight hits are doubles. Hes walked seven times against eight strikeouts, a small sample size, but a great ratio nonetheless. Gose has two stolen bases, but anyone whos watched him play knows hes created runs with his speed and prevented runs with his defence. After a slow start, Kevin Pillar looks up and sees a .304 batting average. Erik Kratz has three home runs in just 45 at-bats. Tolleson, in a small sample size, is hitting better than .300 and has posted a .946 OPS. Gibbons has also established batteries for all three of his catchers. Kratz has become J.A. Happs personal catcher. Josh Thole serves the same role for R.A. Dickey. Dioner Navarro is behind the plate for every Mark Buehrle start. “Hes able to give Navarro a little bit of a breather,” said Gibbons of Kratz. “Against left-handed pitching you can DH (Navarro). Thats where we feel were strongest.” Against right-handed starting pitching, Francisco plays third base and Lawrie second base. Lawrie heads over to third base, where hes most comfortable, when the opposition starts a left-hander. Tolleson plays second. The Jays have a fearsome late-game bench when the opponent starts a lefty. Adam Lind and Francisco are lingering, waiting for their names to be called. “As the game goes on, the only place youre vulnerable, you get to a certain point of the game theyre always going to have that lefty ready,” said Gibbons. “Teams that have enough lefties (in the bullpen), youre waiting on Lind or Francisco. But I think it makes us stronger.” The bullpen has settled down since the return of Casey Janssen, whos converted all seven save opportunities since his return from a strained oblique muscle. Gibbons is most pleased with the progress hes seeing from the rotation. “It all revolves around starting pitching, you know,” said Gibbons. “If starting pitchings good, youve got a chance. If its not, its tough. I dont care what kind of offence youve got, what kind of defence youve got - thats the key to any team in baseball. Check the May ERA of the four rotation mainstays to see the improvement. Drew Hutchison (including Monday night): 5 starts, 3.94Mark Buehrle: 2.16R.A. Dickey: 2.73J.A. Happ: 3.20 RASMUS PROGRESSING On the disabled list since May 13 with tightness in his right hamstring, Colby Rasmus is sprinting his way toward a rehab assignment. “He was out there running and shagging during early BP,” said Gibbons. “Well see in the next few days what happens.” Rasmus sprinted the infield cutout on Saturday and the warning track on Sunday. While hes eligible to return from the disabled list on Wednesday, Rasmus will be sent out on a minor-league rehabilitation assignment before rejoining the Blue Jays. SANTOS PLAYING CATCH Sergio Santos played catch for the third-straight day on Monday afternoon. Hes recovering from a strained right forearm. “He feels pretty good,” said Gibbons. “No soreness at all. So like Colby, we dont know how long its going to be for him. Hes got to build up a little bit, of course.” Santos can be activated off the disabled list at any time - hes been out since May 10 - but hell throw at least two bullpen sessions before heading out on a minor-league rehabilitation assignment. Theres no timetable for Santoss return to the Blue Jays. Morris Claiborne Jersey .Y. - The New York Rangers have reached a one-year contract extension with goalie Cam Talbot, keeping Henrik Lundqvists backup away from unrestricted free agency. Demarcus Robinson Jersey . Certainly not Monday night. George Hill took care of the early work, scoring a season-high 26 points, and Paul George closed it out by scoring 11 of his 26 points during a decisive second-half stretch that finally allowed Indiana to pull away from Minnesota 98-84 for yet another win. http://www.prochiefsauthentic.com/Youth-Xavier-Williams-Elite-Jersey/ . The Red Sox maintained a share of the AL wild-card lead Tuesday night, using four home runs to beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-7 and set up a dramatic conclusion to the regular season. The skidding Red Sox were 6-19 this month before rebounding to edge the last-place Orioles. INDIANAPOLIS -- Dallas Clark never took his eyes off the screen as a video tribute played highlights from his time in Indianapolis. The standout tight end retired from the NFL after 11 seasons Wednesday and when he stepped to the podium at the teams practice facility, he could hardly keep his composure. "Obviously you should have showed the video afterward," Clark said after taking a long pause to gather himself. "My wife told me to keep it lighthearted. I just dont know how to do that because this place and these fans and everyone here mean so much to me." He retired as a member of the Colts, the team that drafted him in the first round in 2003. Its the place where he won a Super Bowl with Peyton Manning in 2006 and spent the first nine years of his career. Clark played for Baltimore last season and for Tampa Bay in 2012. He was released by the Colts in 2011 after the team finished 2-14 and missed the playoffs for the first time in 10 years. Clark signed with Indy just long enough to announce his retirement, though Colts owner Jim Irsay wisecracked that there was no signing bonus this time. "Theres a lot more meaning behind it than numbers," he said. "Its really a great moment when you have a chance to have somebody come back to town." Clark is Indys all-time leader in tight end touchdown catches (46) and receptions (427). He finished second in yards receiving (4,887) and 100-yard games (seven). Clark set single season records with the Colts with 100 receptions and 1,106 yards in the 2009 season. In 2007, he had 11 TD catches. The Colts won at leeast 12 games for seven consecutive seasons and made eight straight playoff appearances leading up to Clarks final season in Indy, before his release and the release of other veterans, including Manning. Marcus Allen Jersey. "You cant write this, you cant make this up," Clark said as he thanked everyone from team doctors and equipment staff, to former Colts coach Tony Dungy and former team President Bill Polian, who drafted him with Indys first-round pick in 2003. "Nothing but love," he said to a crowd that included Reggie Wayne, Robert Mathis and Adam Vinatieri. "For us to go do what we do, theres so many people. Im not going to stand here and think I did it myself because that would be a boldface lie." Wayne was drafted by Indy in 2001 and played alongside Clark each year he was with the Colts. "From day one, he came in with a mission and focused in on it and he locked in on it and within that first year, he came in and made some plays and I knew he was going to be major, major contributor to this offence," Wayne said. "He was that last piece of the puzzle and without Dallas, I dont think we win as many games as we did." Clark got emotional when thanking the teammates hes had throughout his career. "When you have 52 men in the locker room giving everything that they have for one goal, special things happen," he said. "For us, we won like it was like, thats what you do. Until I went to other places, it was like, not everyone gets it. Not everyone can do what we did. Thats the reason why it was so special." ' ' '

VANCOUVER -- It wasnt long ago that the B. J. D. Smith Jersey .C. Lions ground attack was in tatters. Running back Andrew Harris registered an abysmal 10 yards on six carriers in a 31-17 home loss to the Saskatchewan Roughriders back on Oct. 4 and followed that up a week later by rushing nine times for 31 yards in a 40-26 road defeat at the hands of the Calgary Stampeders. What a difference a month makes. General manager Wally Buono brought in former Lions running back/kick returner Stefan Logan to give his teams ground game a shot in the arm after the Calgary loss. Following some initial hiccups, B.C. hasnt looked back. Coming off two straight wins, that re-energized running game featuring both Harris and Logan could play a big part in Sundays CFL West Division semifinal when the Lions visit chilly Regina to take on the Roughriders. "The 1-2 punch between me and Stefan has been great," said Harris. "We definitely feed off each other and when you have that competition with someone else taking reps and getting in there and you see them doing well, it definitely gets you going to make some plays." Harris, who finished third in the CFL this season with 998 yards on the ground, rushed for 102 yards against Calgary in last weeks regular-season finale. It marked his first 100-yard rushing game since late July and came on the heels of Logans 121-yard effort against the Edmonton Eskimos on Oct. 25. "The biggest thing is were two different styles of running backs. It definitely frees up some space for him and it definitely frees up space for me," said Harris, who rushed for 76 yards in the Edmonton game. "When you have two different styles of runners ... its going to be tough for teams to game plan against that." The five-foot-11, 213-pound Harris is a more straight ahead back, while the five-foot-six, 180-pound Logan is more shifty. Logan, who played with the Lions in 2008 before spending four seasons in the NFL, said the fact that B.C. has rushed for over 200 yards in each of the last two weeks has lifted a burden off both the backs and an offensive line that was taking a lot of heat for the lack of production. "Being a part of it right now, were having a great time," said Logan. "Were in the meeting rooms and now its a little more chill and laid back and having fun instead of all uptight and worrying about how were going to look this game. Its going well and we want to keep it going." Having two featured running backs can sometimes cause problems for teams with both players wanting more touches, but Logan said a key for the Lions has been maturity. "When youre in the game and your name is called and your number is called, you want to make plays and thats what its all about," he said. "I want to make plays any way I can. "Its always a battle with each and every position, but you cant let that get to you and lose focus on whats going on right now. Right now were in the playoffs to play Saskatchewan and right now is not a time to be selfish." Prior to his own resurgence, Harris was clearly frustrated but bit his tongue when repeatedly asked about the struggling ground game as B.C. went 11 straight contests without a 100-yard rusher. "Theres no doubt that certainly theres been adversities, ups and downs and those types of things, but thats the course of an 18-game season," said Lions head coach Mike Benevides. "All the challenges that weve all faced are going to make us stronger and better for when it really counts." The Lions and Roughriders finished the regular season with identical 11-7 records, but Saskatchewan won two of the three head-to-head matchups to earn the second seed in the West Division. Benevides has yet to decide on his starting quarterback for Sunday, but either Travis Lulay -- who is returning from an injury to his throwing shoulder -- or veteran backup Buck Pierce will benefit if the Harris-Logan combination continues to click with temperatures expected to dip to as low as -10 C in Regina. "Me and him -- the two-headed monster," said Logan. "I like the name and I want to keep it going." John Henry Johnson Jersey .Y. -- That hangover from the Big East tournament is gone for Villanova.

Ted Ligety, Mikaela Shiffrin, Bode Miller and Tim Jitloff underlined the squads enormous potential on the Rettenbach glacier in Austria. NEW ORLEANS -- Carmelo Anthony said Friday he knows "for a fact" the Knicks wont trade him, and said he would be open to staying in New York for less than a maximum contract. Anthony has said he plans to become a free agent this summer. The NBAs trade deadline is Thursday, but Anthony ruled out any chance the Knicks would move him to avoid the possibility they could lose him for nothing in July. "I know for a fact Im not being traded," Anthony said at the NBAs All-Star weekend. "Theres two things: I know for a fact Im not being traded and Im not going in there and saying I want to be traded." New York can pay him around $30 million more than any team, but Anthony said he wouldnt insist on making the Knicks do it. "As far as the money, it dont really matter to me. If I go somewhere else I get paid, if I stay in New York I get paid," Anthony said. "So as far as the money goes, thats not my concern. My concern is being able to compete on a high level, at a championship level coming at this last stretch of my career." The Knicks arent doing it now. They are 20-32, one of the leagues biggest disappointments after winning the Atlantic Division last season, and are wasting a strong season by Anthony that has him ranked second in the league with 27. Jimmy Johnson Jersey. 3 points per game while also averaging 8.6 rebounds. The Knicks need plenty more, and it will be tough to get because they are already so far over the salary cap. Not having to pay Anthony all of the more than $120 million he would be eligible for could help. "I talk to people all the time. I always say if it takes me taking a pay cut, Ill be the first one on Mr. Dolans step saying, Take my money, lets build something stronger," Anthony said, referring to Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan. Anthony was traded to New York just after the All-Star game three years ago and has reached the playoffs in each season. But they are currently out of the playoff picture even in the weak Eastern Conference, and Anthony will have to decide if he feels they can put a championship team around him as he approaches his 30th birthday. "He makes really good decisions and I feel this decision for him will be no different," said the Clippers Chris Paul, one of Anthonys closest friends in the league. "I know he loves it there. His family loves it there. Most of all, he loves to play basketball there. I dont know what his decision will be, but whatever he does, Ill support him 110 per cent." ' ' '
