RIMOUSKI, Que. Josh Cribbs Jersey . —The Saint John Sea
Dogs are one win away from clinching a second straight Memorial Cup berth.
Danick Gauthier scored two goals to lead the Sea Dogs to a 6-4 win over the
Rimouski Oceanic on Wednesday in Game 3 of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League
Presidents Cup final. Saint John has a 3-0 lead in the best-of-seven
championship series, which continues Thursday night in Rimouski. Stephen
MacAulay, Stanislav Galiev and Tomas Jurco each had a goal and an assist for the
Sea Dogs. Charles-Olivier Roussel also scored for Saint John, while Mathieu
Corbeil stopped 23 of 27 shots. Jerome Gauthier-Leduc, Alexandre Mallet, Petr
Straka and Francis Beauvillier scored for the Oceanic. Alex Belzile and Jakub
Culek had two assists apiece for Rimouski, while Jacob Gervais-Chouinard and
Carl Hozjan faced 24 shots. Rimouskis main shortcoming was a power play that
went 1-for-7. “Our penalty killing was the difference tonight,” Sea Dogs head
coach Gerard Gallant said. “It was a big test and we did a great job. We found a
way to win without playing our best game, but we knew it was going to be tough
tonight.” Roussel gave the Sea Dogs a 1-0 lead at 8:53 of the first period,
finishing a three-on-one. Rimouski responded with Gauthier-Leducs power-play
goal just over two minutes later and the contest remained 1-1 through 20
minutes. Saint John took a 2-1 lead on MacAulays goal at 17:30 of the second
period and Gauthier made it 3-1 just 33 seconds later. Rimouski pulled within
one when Mallet scored 18 seconds into the third period. Galiev answered just 17
seconds later to give the Sea Dogs a 4-2 lead. Gauthier scored his second less
than a minute later, grabbing a turnover at the Rimouski blue-line and beating
Gervais-Chouinard through his pads. “That was really big,” Gallant said. “They
were really jumping offensively tonight and they gave us some odd-man rushes,
and if their goalie doesnt make a big save on those chances, were going to score
some goals.” Strakas goal at 11:03 pulled Rimouski within two. The Oceanic
failed to score during a two-man advantage that lasted nearly two minutes, but
made it close a couple of minutes later when Beauvillier scored at 16:05 to make
it 5-4. Galiev set up Jurco with 1:59 left to complete the scoring. “The thing
weve learned about these guys is that theyre very resilient,” MacAulay said.
“Whenever we score, they come right back and they never give up. We just have to
play harder after we score goals. We have to make sure we keep the momentum. If
you give a team like that life, theyll get you at some point.” Jim Brown Jersey . Mathews was injured on his
first carry of the preseason in the first quarter and did not return to the
game. He is expected to have surgery Friday morning and coach Norv Turner said
hell be out four to six weeks. Trent Richardson Jersey . However, a trip to
Phoenix just might do the trick. The Red Wings look to record a sweep of their
season series with the Coyotes, but must do so once again tonight without
All-Star Jimmy Howard in net. http://www.nikeclevelandbrownsproshop.com/brandon-weeden-jerseys
. The defending-champion Canadians improved to six points atop Group A, three
ahead of Jamaica in second. Guatemala faced winless Panama in the second game of
Fridays doubleheader, with a Panama win or draw clinching a place for Canada in
the semifinals. Trent Richardson Womens Jersey . Alonso went
2 for 4 with 3 RBIs and the San Diego Padres used a five-run fourth inning to
beat the Houston Astros 8-4 on Wednesday. T.J. Ward Jersey . Carter scored nine during
a 19-0 rally in the second half of Sundays 96-89 win at Boston. The veteran was
on fire again in the late going against the Hornets. He finished the game
19-of-27 from the field, including 6-of-10 from three-point range.(Sports
Network) – Sporting just one road win this season, the Los Angeles Lakers will
be away from home quite often the next few weeks and will get the journey
started tonight against the Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena. Its the first
of a TSN2 double-header tonight. Action gets underway at 8pm et/5pm pt. That
will be followed immediately by the Mavericks in Utah to take on the Jazz. The
Lakers will play two straight, four of six and 10 of their next 13 games as the
visitor, and are only 1-4 on foreign courts this season. Los Angeles has won
nine in a row at home and six of seven overall, including Mondays 73-70 victory
over the Dallas Mavericks thanks to Derek Fishers three-pointer with 3.1 seconds
remaining in the game. Fisher buried a shot over the outstretched arm of
Dirk Nowitzki and finished with 13 points. Kobe Bryant had scored 40 or more
points in four straight games, but was 7-of-22 from the floor for a season-low
14 points. He assisted on Fishers three. “Kobe demands a lot of attention and he
trusted me to make the right play,” said Fisher, who scored nine points in the
fourth quarter. “Im confident in my ability to make the right play. I have a
responsibility to my team.” Bryant is one of 20 finalists for the 2012 U.S.
Olympic Team and leads all Western Conference players in All-Star voting.
Andrew Bynum led the Lakers with 17 points and a game-high 15 rebounds. Los
Angeles was able to bounce back from a loss to the rival Clippers a few days
prior and held on for a won over Dallas despite shooting 38.2 percent and
scoring only seven points in the third quarter. The Lakers will close out their
Florida trip in Orlando on Friday before returning to Hollywood for consecutive
games versus the Pacers and Clippers. Miami hopes to have both LeBron James and
Dwyane Wade healthy enough for this early-season matchup with the Lakers. James
missed the Heats shootaround on Thursday morning with flu-like symptoms and was
listed as a game-time decision. Meanwhile, Wade has missed four of the past
seven games due to injury. The All-Star guard did not play in Tuesdays 120-98
victory over San Antonio because of a bruised left foot and right ankle sprain,
and is listed as questionable for Thursday. James logged 33 points and 10
assists, while Chris Bosh had 30 points, eight rebounds and five assists against
the Spurs for the Heat, who battled back from as many as 17 points down to halt
a three-game losing streak and set a season-high for points in a half with 71
points in the second half. “LeBron and Chris were brilliant offensively and
shouldered a big load,” Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said. “In the second
half, after we defended and those two guys generated a lot of offense, we were
able to execute and trust and the other guys were able to get involved.”
Mike Miller, who had missed the first 12 games with a sports hernia, scored 18
points in a winning effort and helped Miami kick off a five-game homestand on a
positive notte. Brandon Weeden Jersey. The Heat are 4-1 at
home this season and will also welcome the 76ers, Bucks and Cavs to south
Florida. They are averaging a league-best 107.2 points per game and holding the
opposition to 99.2 ppg. Miami won both meetings with the Lakers last season and
is unbeaten in the past three meetings between the teams. LA has dropped three
straight and six of its last seven contests at the Heat. The Lakers hold an
all-time record of 29-17 against Miami. Mavericks vs Jazz (Sports Network) –
Utah, perhaps the most surprising team in the Western Conference, will aim to
continue its stellar play at home against the reigning NBA champion Dallas
Mavericks. After starting the season 0-2 the Jazz have rattled off nine wins in
11 games, the latest of which came on Tuesday in Salt Lake City when
Paul Millsap scored 20 points, leading Utah to a 108-79 pasting of the
Chris Paul-less Clippers. C.J. Miles added 19 points and Devin Harris had 13 for
the Jazz, winners of three straight and eight of nine since New Years Day.
Alec Burks chipped in 11 while Al Jefferson and Enes Kanter both finished with
10. “I enjoyed watching the guys having fun do what they do,” Jazz head coach
Tyrone Corbin said. “They really worked together and they deserved to have some
success.” At 9-4 on the season, helped by a 7-1 mark at EnergySolutions Arena,
Utah has the second best record in the West behind Oklahoma City. The Mavs also
played the Clips in their last contest on Wednesday but werent as lucky,
dropping a tough 91-89 decision at Staples Center despite Pauls continued
absence due to a hamstring problem. Chauncey Billups picked up the slack by
hitting his first “Big Shot” for LA in that one, draining a go-ahead
three-pointer with one second left in regulation to give the Clippers the
victory, their first over Dallas in over three years. Four seconds prior to
Billups make, Jason Terry had hit a straightaway three after coming off a
double-screen at the top of the key to give Dallas the lead, 89-88. But the
Clippers drew up a play for Billups, who inbounded the ball along the right
sideline and passed to Blake Griffin. Jason Kidd lost Billups in the exchange,
and “Mr. Big Shot” hit nothing but the bottom of the net from the right wing. “I
was a little surprised I was that open,” Billups said. “I got some separation
and made the shot.” Dallas desperation lob fell short prior to the buzzer,
putting an end to the Clippers 10-game losing streak to the Mavs. Dirk Nowitzki
and Delonte West each scored 17 points to lead the Mavs, who also suffered a
last-second loss to the Lakers at Staples Center on Monday. Terry scored 12
points, as did teammate Shawn Marion, who also pulled down 10 rebounds. “Its
tough when this happens,” Mavs head coach Rick Carlisle said. “Give them credit,
they made the last shot.” Dallas swept a four-game season series with the Jazz
in 2010-11 ’ ’ ’
