Curtis Lazar showed in his rookie season he can score goals, but this year hes
taking his production up a level. Donald Butler Womens Jersey . The 17-year-old
scored his first career hat trick as the Edmonton Oil Kings defeated the
visiting Red Deer Rebels 6-2 on Sunday afternoon in Western Hockey League
action. Last season Lazar scored 20 goals in his rookie campaign, including
three two-goal performances. Michael St. Croix scored twice for the Oil Kings
(2-0-0) while Stephane Legault, T.J. Foster and Cody Corbett chipped in with two
assists each. Klarc Wilson added a single goal to round out Edmontons scoring.
Chad Robinson and Cory Millette scored for the Rebels (0-0-2), who have now
dropped five straight decisions to the Oil Kings dating back to last season.
Edmontons Laurent Brossoit made 18 saves for the victory while Patrik Bartosak
stopped 47-of-53 shots in a losing effort. Edmonton went 1 for 7 on the power
play while Red Deer failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.
Elsewhere in the WHL, it was: Prince George 7 Everett 6 (SO); and Portland 4
Tri-City 2. At Edmonton, St. Croix opened the scoring 1:29 into the first
period. Millette tied the game for Red Deer at 13:49, but Lazar scored
shorthanded at 15:48 to give the Oil Kings a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes of play.
Lazar added his second goal 18 seconds into the second period and St. Croix
scored again at 8:10, while on the power play. Robinson cut into Edmontons lead
at 13:20, however Lazars third goal of the day, which came less than a minute
later, restored a three-goal lead for his club heading into the final period.
Wilson added one more goal for the Oil Kings at 15:27 of the third period. —
Cougars 7 Silvertips 6 (SO) At Everett, Wash., the Cougars scored three
unanswered goals in the third period to force extra time before Prince George
(2-0-0) eventually beat the Silvertips (0-1-1) in a shootout. —
Winterhawks 4
Americans 2 At Kennewick, Wash., Chase De Leo and Nicolas Petan each scored
twice to lead Portland (2-1-0) past Tri-City (0-2-0). Melvin Ingram Jersey . Romero (8-3) gave up
11 hits, three walks and eight runs in six-plus innings as the Kansas City
Royals defeated Toronto 11-3 on Monday. Ryan Mathews Youth Jersey . The 28-year-old
suffered the setback on November 10 in a game against the Winnipeg Jets, but the
team said that he will not need surgery. Upshall had totaled just one goal and
three points in 15 games this season, after Florida signed him to a four-year
deal worth a reported $14 million. http://www.shopthesandiegochargers.com/malcom-floyd-jersey
.75 million with the Senators, according to a report in The Ottawa Sun. Nick Hardwick Jersey . A 17-game winner two
seasons ago before he was limited to just 14 starts in 2011, Buchholz got win
No. 11 this year with eight innings of three-run ball against Baltimore on Aug.
16 at Camden Yards. Hes dropped two decisions in three subsequent tries at win
No. Antonio Gates Womens Jersey . Gordon singled
in the go-ahead run with two outs in the 11th inning and the Dodgers, who blew a
five-run lead in the fifth, beat the San Diego Padres 6-5 for their third
straight win.AUGUSTA, Ga. —Fred Couples floats across Augusta National on a
cloud of cool. At 52, he figures hes in on a free pass. Hes got aches and pains
as old as the guy with whom he shares the top of the leaderboard. Better still,
if Couples won the Masters again, 20 years after the first time he did it, he
already knows exactly what hed do next. “Youd never see me again,” he chuckled.
“It would be a walkoff.” Dont laugh. Couples green jacket in 1992 was almost as
improbable. Not because he wasnt capable of sublime golf back then—or now,
for that matter—but because of a single shot that set up the win by defying
the laws of gravity. In the final round, Couples hit an 8-iron into the par-3
12th and tucked his chin into his chest as the shot rode a breeze and began
drifting to the right. The ball hit the bank in front of the green and began
sliding down the slippery slope toward Raes Creek and the watery grave that
claimed every similar shot all weekend. Somehow, his stopped, nestled up against
a few blades of grass. Couples chipped up to save par and wound up winning by
two. He called it “the biggest break of my life.” Yet Couples seemed almost as
mystified by what happened Friday, when he fought off two early bogeys with
seven birdies and carded a 67. That left him at 5-under for the tournament, tied
with 35-year-old Jason Dufner. “I stand out there and say, What the hell? a
lot,” he laughed. “Or What do I have to lose here? Or Go for the flag on this
shot.” But the higher he climbed up the leaderboard, the more cautious Couples
became—or at least what passes as cautious for him. “Once you really get
cruising around,” he added, “then it becomes, Play a smart shot.” Hes played
hundreds of those over the course of 200 rounds here, enough to post 10 career
top-10 finishes at the Masters but thats not all. A moment before he walked into
the interview room, someone reminded Couples he owned the best scoring average
of anyone with 100 rounds or more at the tournament, including Jack Nicklaus,
who won here six times. Nicklaus was 46 when he won the last time, in 1986, and
Couples was on just his fourth go-round. “I said, Well, I dont know the last
year he played, but his scores kept going up a little bit and mine will be doing
that shortly. But today,” he added, brightening, “was not one of those days.”
Its only when Couple doffs his ballcap to reveal a full head of shaggy grey
hair, or talks about gulping aspirins to quiet a chronically troublesome back,
that you remember he cant do this forever, let alone string together four solid
rounds at a major anymore. Philip Rivers Youth Jersey. Last year,
Couples was seventh heading into the weekend, then faded with 72-73 and wound up
tied for 15th. A half-dozen years ago, he was second heading into the final
round and shot 71, finishing in a tie for third. Couples strategy to conserve
energy this time around was vintage Fred: He practiced less. He hit some balls
on the range, played in the ceremonial par-3 tournament on Wednesday and planned
to play the back nine before thunderstorms forced him to take the rest of the
day off. Instead of feeling guilty, Couples took it as a good sign. He never
needed an excuse to play hooky. “Basically, I feel like I played enough,” he
said. “I dont need to wear myself out.” Even in his prime, Couples was that way.
His swing is the same, too, long and graceful, with no wasted motion. He doesnt
hit it as far as he used to—the nickname “Boom Boom” fell away years ago—
but still plenty far. Then theres the temperament. Couples reminds rivals of the
guy who just put down a cocktail on the patio, picked up his clubs and wandered
into the middle of the tournament. “Hes amazing,” said Sergio Garcia, whos part
of a five-some trailing Couples and 35-year-old Jason Dufner by a stroke. “He
always manages to do it somehow.” Yet the only thing hard to believe is that
Couples will be able to play the last two rounds as well as he did the first
two. The prospect hardly rattles him. “I dont feel too much stress. Now,
obviously theres stress out there and Im not—what Im getting at is, when
youre playing here, Im not going to let too many things bother me. Its so
beautiful. You cant say its your favourite place and then break a club on the
fourth hole on Saturday. ... And if I dont do well, you know, I leave here with
the attitude of Ill come back next year and do well. “A lot of the tournaments I
play in, at my age now—not 20 years ago—they are just golf tournaments.
Its another week of golf. And for me to be tied at this moment, its a little
shocking, but I played a really good round of golf today. “I have to do that
tomorrow,” Couples added, “or they will just fly by me.” Catch him if you can. ’
