The NHL will take a break from free agent and draft preparations tonight to
honour this past seasons top performers at the NHL Awards. Travian Robertson Jersey . Nine days after
the Los Angeles Kings hoisted the Stanley Cup, and two days before the NHL
Draft, the leagues top stars will converge in Las Vegas as the annual hardware
is handed out. The main attraction is – as always – the Hart Trophy, which pits
Evgeni Malkin, Steven Stamkos, and Henrik Lundqvist against each other, vying
for the leagues MVP. With Sidney Crosby missing most of the year to injury,
Malkin made sure the Pittsburgh Penguins didnt miss a beat. The 25-year-old led
the league with 109 points, 12 more than his closest competitor, Stamkos. The
Tampa Bay Lightning centre led the league in goals, however. Stamkos was the
only player to hit the 60-goal mark this past season, 10 more than Malkin and 19
more than Marian Gaborik, who finished third in goals scored. Lundqvist was near
the top of all statistical categories for goalies in the regular season, and led
the New York Rangers to top spot in the Eastern Conference. Lundqvist is also up
for the Vezina Trophy as top goalie, going up against Kings G Jonathan Quick,
whose regular season was nearly as impressive as his playoff run, and the
Nashville Predators Pekka Rinne, who led the league with 43 wins. The Norris
Trophy for top defenceman comes down to Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators,
Shea Weber of the Nashville Predators, and the Boston Bruins Zdeno Chara. Other
players on Canadian teams up for awards include Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (Calder) and
Jordan Eberle (Lady Byng) of the Edmonton Oilers, and Torontos Joffrey Lupul,
Ottawas Daniel Alfredsson, and Montreals Max Pacioretty all up for the Bill
Masterson Award. Matt Ryan Falcons Jersey . Canadians

. Then the All-Star whos always quick to needle Tim Duncan about his age finally
acknowledged his own. “Im old. Used,” said Parker, laughing. Matt Ryan Elite Jersey . Thats when he got
his first lesson. “Its CHOWDA, Shane!” Red Sox centre fielder Jacoby Ellsbury
corrected him. “That was the first real message from Jacoby for Boston,”
Victorino said Thursday at a news conference to announce the $39 million,
three-year deal he agreed to at the winter meetings. Tony Gonzalez Falcons Jersey .J. —New York
Jets linebacker Calvin Pace has been fined US$15,000 by the NFL for an illegal
hit on Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick last Sunday.PHILADELPHIA—
This was the Cam Newton who was the talk of the NFL last season. Newton threw
for two touchdowns and ran for two more to lead the Carolina Panthers to a 30-22
victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in a matchup of teams with
the worst records in the NFC. Newton, who hadnt played up to his sensational
rookie season, showed no signs of a sophomore slump against Philadelphias porous
pass defence. He finished 18 of 28 for 306 yards and had a passer rating of 125.
“I think my best game is still to come,” Newton said. “Im still focused on
getting better each and every week.” Bryce Brown set a club rookie record with
178 yards rushing, including TD runs of 65 and 5 yards, but the Eagles (3-8)
still lost their seventh straight game. Brown, filling in for injured running
back LeSean McCoy, surpassed Correll Buckhalters rookie mark of 134 yards
rushing in his first start since his senior year at Wichita East High School in
2008. But Brown also lost two fumbles, including one in Panthers territory.
Fellow rookie Nick Foles was so-so in his second straight start for
Michael Vick, who also sat out with a concussion. Foles was 16 of 21 for 119
yards. “The most important thing for me was for us to get the win and that didnt
happen tonight,” Brown said. “I felt like a lot of that had to do with my two
turnovers. It really, really cost us.” Carolina (3-8) went ahead 24-22 early in
the fourth quarter on Graham Ganos 23-yard field goal. Then the Panthers finally
stopped Brown when it mattered most, stuffing him on a fourth-and-1 to take over
on downs at their 40. Newton led them downfield, running in from the 2 to make
it 30-22. Gano, signed last week, missed the extra point. But Brandon Boykin
fumbled after a 44-yard kickoff return, the Panthers recovered and held the ball
the final 4:29. “Its been a long time in coming,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera
said. “Lots of people contributed and made plays. Real proud of what we did and
the things we did to give ourselves a chance to win.” Newton, the No, 1 overall
pick in the 2011 NFL draft, lived up to the hype by throwing for 4,051 yards
with 21 TD passes and 14 TDs on the ground in his first year. He entered this
game with only nine TD passes and four TDs rushing, a major disappointment for
Panthers fans. But Newton outshined a rookie seventh-round pick in his Monday
night debut. “We took some plays off his plate and really tried to balance it
out and spread it among other players and he has really responded very well to
those things,” Rivera said. “I think we had to interpret it as giving him a
breath once in a while. These last few weeks, hes played like the guy we believe
he could become.” Newton had a 24-yard TD toss over the middle to a wide-open
Gary Barnidge for a 7-3 lead. He connected with Brandon LaFell on a 43-yard pass
to make it 14-3 later in the first quarter. LaFell was wide open on the play,
taking advantage of another breakkdown in coverage in the secondary. Julio Jones Limited Jersey. Since Todd Bowles
replaced Juan Castillo as defensive co-ordinator, the Eagles have allowed 13
passing touchdowns and havent had an interception in five games. Newton led a
95-yard drive to open the third quarter, finishing it off with a 1-yard leap to
give the Panthers a 21-15 lead. Newton hit Louis Murphy for a 55-yard gain on a
second-and-11 from Carolinas 16. A 51-yard pass interference call on
Haruki Nakamura on Foles deep pass to Jeremy Maclin put Philadelphia at the
Panthers 5. Brown then ran in for the go-ahead score. Brown broke loose early in
the second quarter to get Philadelphia within 14-12. Brown started up the
middle, cut outside and outran the defence down the right sideline for the
seventh-longest TD run by a Philadelphia rookie. The Eagles inexplicably tried a
2-point conversion and failed. “Bryce did what we thought he could do,” Eagles
coach Andy Reid said. “Hes a talented kid. Its a shame he had the two fumbles.
He was on a roll. Those things cost you. Hell learn from it. Hes got a great
future.” Alex Henerys 45-yard field goal gave them a 15-14 lead. Henery kicked a
41-yarder to cut it to 14-6 in the second quarter. It was his 18th straight
field goal, setting a team record. The Eagles havent won since beating the
defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants to go 3-1, leaving fans and media
to speculate about Reids job. Owner Jeffrey Lurie already has said that an 8-8
record would be “unacceptable” this year. The Eagles would have to finish 5-0
just to get there. “Im not worried about all the other things,” Reid said. “We
havent talked about that. Hes been supportive. Obviously hes competitive and
wants to win games.” Fans known for their hostile behaviour have become
apathetic toward their beloved Eagles. The Linc was about one-third empty for
pregame introductions and plenty of seats remained empty at the start. There
were boos early when the Eagles fell behind, but they lacked the usual lustre.
The Panthers have shown theyre better than their record. They have lost six
games by less than a touchdown, including a 2-point loss at Atlanta and a
1-point loss at Chicago. “Its a huge stage, Monday Night Football, on the road,”
tackle Jordan Gross said. “It was just big for us and big for the guys on the
team who havent experienced something like this.” The injury-depleted Eagles
lost wide receiver DeSean Jackson (sternum) and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox
(tail bone) in the first half. Notes: Neither Vick nor McCoy have been cleared
to return to practice. ... The Eagles inducted five-time Pro Bowl cornerback
Troy Vincent and longtime front office executive Leo Carlin into the teams Hall
of Fame at halftime. ... Browns 65-yard TD run was longest for Eagles since
McCoys 66-yarder, against New York Giants, Nov. 1, 2009. ... Buckhalter had 134
yards rushing vs. Arizona on Oct. 7, 2001. ... Newton led the Panthers with 52
yards rushing. ’ ’ ’
