RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Top-ranked Rafael Nadal survived a scare at the Rio Open on Saturday, fighting off two match points before defeating fellow Spaniard Pablo Andujar 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (10) to advance to the final. Hanley Ramirez Red Sox Jersey . Nadal will next face Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine, who upset second-seeded David Ferrer 6-4, 6-4 on Rios outdoor clay. Nadal has been almost unbeatable on clay in his career, compiling a 297-21 record, the best in the Open era. His last loss on the surface was 10 months ago against Novak Djokovic in the Monte Carlo Masters. But this was not his night as he needed nearly three hours to defeat Andujar. Nadal is returning from a back injury he sustained in the final of the Australian Open four weeks ago -- a match he lost to Stanislas Wawrinka. "I felt empty the whole match," he said. "It was very humid, and this was the toughest day of all. I just didnt feel that great physically, and Im not talking about the back. I just didnt feel that great. "It was close because he played well, and I didnt play my best," Nadal added. Nadal acknowledged his victory was lucky. "The tiebreak was a lottery," he said. "But I played better in the tiebreak than the rest of the match." Andujar had two match points in the third-set tiebreaker but couldnt convert either. "I played one of the best matches of my life," he said. "Maybe the best. But I had a great one across (the net) from me." Dolgopolov, who had beaten Ferrer only once in seven previous matches, won handily and didnt flinch. "I always have these type matches with him, and usually at the end he would beat me," the Ukrainian said. "I knew Id have to make those shots. If you dont win the points against him, he takes it away. Im really happy I didnt get tight and give away a lot of shots." Dolgopolov has won two previous ATP titles. Ferrer won the Copa Claro last weekend in Buenos Aires, his third consecutive title in that clay-court event. He has 21 ATP titles. In the womens tournament, top-seeded Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic and fifth-seeded Kurumi Nara of Japan will face off in the final. Zakopalova defeated local hope Teliana Pereira 6-2, 6-1, and Nara won over Nastassja Burnett of Italy 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. Zakopalova will be aiming for her third WTA singles title. She won two in 2004, and has since been a losing finalist 11 times. This will be Naras first WTA singles final. "Im very surprised because its on a clay court," said Nara, a university student who prefers hard courts. Wade Boggs Red Sox Jersey . The Canucks figured to be active prior to Wednesdays trade deadline, getting a jump on things the previous day when they dealt goaltender Roberto Luongo to the Florida Panthers for netminder Jacob Markstrom and forward Shawn Matthias. Custom Boston Red Sox Jerseys . The biggest shock of this seasons competition was on when Watford took a 2-0 lead after 30 minutes at Etihad Stadium, only for a remarkable Aguero-led comeback by City in the final half-hour. The Argentina striker produced clinical finishes in the 60th and 79th minutes to level the score before Aleksandar Kolarov put City in front in the 87th. http://www.redsoxapparelsshop.com/carl-y...rsey-c-11/ .com) - Scott Parel carded a 5-under 65 on Thursday and he grabbed a 1-stroke lead after one round of the season-opening Panama Claro Championship.Winnipeg, MB (SportsNetwork.com) - Columbus Blue Jackets goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky left Wednesdays game against the Winnipeg Jets with an apparent lower-body injury. Bobrovsky suffered the injury after stretching out to make a save during the second period and had to be helped off the ice. David Price Red Sox Jersey. The Russian netminder was expected to play in Sundays All-Star game in Columbus. Curtis McElhinney replaced Bobrovsky, who allowed three goals on 12 shots before exiting. Blue Jackets forward Jeremy Morin also left the game with an injury.

Byfuglien is an interesting case for the Jets, having shifted from defence to forward part way through last season. While Big Buff is an effective winger, his preference is to play defence, which might make him appealing as a trade candidate for other clubs that are willing to accomodate that desire. But, if Byfuglien sticks around, the Jets have a quality group of forwards, with potential to be really good if Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele continue to develop. Their defence isnt as strong, overall, without Byfuglien, but Jacob Troubas strong rookie season was encouraging. Basically, the Jets have a competitive group of skaters. Not great, necessarily, but competitive. Then, it comes to goaltending, and that appears to be the area that needs fixing, only GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has backed Ondrej Pavelec as the teams starting goaltender going into next season. Maybe thats the stance that a GM has to take with a guy under contract for three more seasons, but his performance has been crippling to the Jets playoff chances and if he starts 50-plus games again next season, that is a serious roll of the dice that the Jets are taking with a goaltender that has finished with a league average save percentage once in five NHL seasons. The Jets did fare better under new head coach Paul Maurice, going 18-12-5 in the last 35 games, but that was largely due to favourable percentages and their possession stats only improved slightly over that span. They are close enough to contend for a playoff spot next season, with a couple of savvy moves this summer and further development from young players, but if they dont do something to upgrade in goal, it may all for naught.

That presumes that Byfuglien doesnt get moved in the summer, which is always a possibility, but also operates under the premise that the Jets are better with Byfuglien at forward. Byfuglien, individually, had a 51.7% Corsi percentage before he was moved to forward and 48.0% after. That aside, in 32 games at (mostly) forward, Byfuglien had 10 goals, 12 assists and 102 shots on goal. On a per-game basis, those numbers would have placed him with pretty nice company last season. Its a little interesting that the bottom name on that list is Brent Burns, the Sharks winger who also used to play defence. Over the past three seasons, Blake Wheeler has 174 points, which ranks 22nd in the league over that span and last years 50 even-strength points was tied for 13th in the league with David Krejci and Thomas Vanek. Wheelers is big and can move, which allows him to create mismatches depending on what gives him the advantage on a particular defender. Evander Kane uses his terrific speed to generate shots at an elite level, but has been a relatively low-percentage finisher. Some of that is due to not getting first-unit power play time and, even at even-strength, could use better linemates to help him out. That doesnt absolve Kane of any responsibility for his production, which has dipped since scoring 30 goals in 74 games in 2011-2012, but theres still a lot to like about what he brings to the game. After scoing 23 goals and a career-high 64 points, there is a case to be made for Bryan Little as an advanced stats All-Star as one of a handful of players to face top-tier competition, start more shifts in the defensive zone and still have a relative Corsi over plus-10 per 60 minutes. The common perception of Little might be that hes a good second-line centre but the 26-year-old is coming off a season in which he was a full-fledged No. 1 pivot. Team captain Andrew Ladd has scored 98 goals over the past four seasons, ranking 24th in that span. Hes a reliable two-way player that can be used in any situation and he is, averaging 19:46 per game in four seasons with the franchise. Mark Scheifele had rounded into form, with 12 goals and 29 points in the last 39 games he played before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Considering that Scheifele managed five points in his first 24 games last season, and had his Corsi percentage rise from 46.7% to 49.7% over those splits, counts as positive indications that he could fulfill the second-line centre role going forward. A sports hernia cost Jim Slater two-thirds of last season, and hes mustered a grand total of two goals and four points in 53 games over the past two seasons. While hes hit double-digits in goals three times in his career, Slater has also missed at least a dozen games in six of nine seasons, so its getting difficult to count on him, even in a fourth-line role. Though he has a paltry 15 points in 136 career games, big winge Eric Tangradi held his own in a depth role last season, putting up positive possession stats. As an inexpensive fourth-line option, the Jets could do worse. Like most forwards that play less than six minutes per game, Anthony Peluso cant risk playing too many minutes, lest he be exposed. Hes a scrapper who can handle the big boys, though, so as long as the Jets are going to leave a roster spot for that role, Peluso can fill it. At the same time, they could probably do without. 26-year-old Michael Frolik established that he hasnt completely forgotten how to create offence, scoring 42 points, his most since 2009-2010. Hes still a low-percentage finisher, but a versatile forward who can play both ends of the rink. A couple years removed from a career-best 28-point season, Matt Halischuk has been battling to keep a regular spot in the lineup and, last season, he was overrun in possession terms. Hes a viable fourth-line forward, but also one that could quickly be replaced. 24-year-old James Wright has good size, but there isnt much else justifying his place on an NHL roster. Last season, he was one of eight forwards since 2000-2001 to play at least 500 minutes and not register a single goal. The Jets have a solid core of forwards, but can use a couple of top-nine forwards to effectively take spots of unrestricted free agents Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Given the free agent alternatives at centre, the Jets could be okay doing a short-term deal with Jokinen and then find a solid checking forward, like Blake Comeau, Jesse Winchester or Daniel Winnik could round out the group nicely.

A 20-year-old who can skate, hit and contribute offensively, Trouba will have more responsibility heaped on him, but he has the makings of a No. 1 on the blueline. Back surgery ended Grant Clitsomes season early, but he was logging nearly 20 minutes a night, with positive possession stats at the time of his injury. Clitsome can move the puck and play a solid game, though hes never played more than 63 games in an NHL season, so theres still some unknown regarding his performance over the course of a full season. While Tobias Enstroms offensive production dipped to a career-low 0.37 points per game last season, he still delivered relatively steady play while facing tough competition. Hes small, but mobile and his ability to move the puck is important to the Jets defence. Zach Bogosian hasnt really made the mark that was expected when he was drafted third overall in 2008 and, on top of being bitten by the injury bug -- hes missed 70 games over the past four seasons -- Bogosian hasnt been able to successfully lock into a shutdown role. Thats the objective, but there is still some unexplored potential in the 23-year-olds game. A rugged veteran, Mark Stuart combined for 389 hits and blocked shots last season, ranking third among defencemen (behind Cody Franson and Radko Gudas), so theres no denying that he lays his body on the line. He also tends to spend more of his time in the Jets end of the ice, though last season he was taking on tougher matchups, playing more minutes once Byfuglien moved up. Paul Postma hasnt been able to hold down a regular spot in the lineup, playing 57 career games and while he has some puck skills and a big shot that suit him on the power play, Postma struggled at even-strength last season. Between Postma, Keaton Ellerby and pending unrestricted free agent Adam Pardy, the Jets had a battle for playing time at the bottom of the defence depth chart. Ellerby could take on more minutes if Pardy departs, but that may just mean a more regular turn in the lineup. The wildcard could be top prospect Joshua Morrissey, who is a fast-rising offensive defenceman. If he makes the club, that could raise the groups ceiling. Returning Goaltender Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Cap Hit Ondrej Pavelec 60.64 57 22 26 7 3.01 .901 $3.9M Free Agent Goaltender Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Class 13-14 Cap Hit Al Montoya 68.70 28 13 8 3 2.30 .920 UFA $601K Over the past three seasons, Ondrej Pavelec has cost the Jets approximately 45 goals compared to the league average, according to Hockey References Goals Saved Above Average measure. Its one thing to be at the bottom of the league in save percentage and another to continually get played at a starters workload. The Jets have invested money in Pavelec, but its really had to rationalize him in a starters role, especially if the team considers itself ready to contend for a playoff spot. There may be challenges to getting rid of Pavelec, not least of which is that Cheveldayoff has said that Pavelec will be the No. 1 goalie next year, but he also may not be particularly appealing to other teams with the Jets paying half of his salary. Given how much it has been a problem lately, though, the Jets have to investigate opportunities to upgrade their goaltending. A trade for Manitoba native James Reimer could work, or signing a free agent like Jonas Hiller, Brian Elliott, Ray Emery or Tomas Vokoun could be worthwhile. Top Prospects Player Pos.

If the Jets are willing to live with the mistakes of a smart, teenaged offensive defenceman, then Morrissey (who has six points in eight AHL playoff games) could be a viable challenger for an NHL job as a 19-year-old. An undersized playmaker, Nicolas Petan was a second-rond pick last summer and has been tearing up the WHL for the past couple seasons. Between regular season and playoffs, hes tallied 289 points (in 176 games) and while size may be an issue, the only way to find out if its going to pose a problem is to wait and see how he does at the next level. A 6-foot-5 winger-turned-centre, Adam Lowry completed his first pro season and is probably not far from challenging for a spot in Winnipeg. The third-round pick from 2011 picked up his play after Christmas, scoring 28 points in his last 43 regular-season games. One of the games better goaltending prospects, Eric Comrie was a second-round pick in 2013. He struggled in a couple of AHL games at seasons end, but had a tremendous season in the WHL. Hes also only 18-year-old, so its going to take time before hes the answer to the Jets goaltending questions. Drafted in the third round in 2012, Scott Kosmachuk has improved steadily throughout his junior career and had a monster year with a powerhouse Guelph team in the OHL. He can make the jump to the AHL next season to see if his scoring will come to the pro game with him. A solidly-built centre who was picked in the fourth round last year, Andrew Copp is making quick progress, coming off a strong sophomore season at Michigan while also putting up five points in five games at the World Juniors for Team USA. Theres not much more that Connor Hellebuyck can do in college to raise his profile. Through two years at UMass-Lowell, Hellebuyck has a .946 save percentage and a dozen shutouts. Hes signed with the Jets and might be expected to start in the American Hockey League, but if he keep stopping pucks, there should be room for him. An aggressive winger picked in the third roudn last summer, J.C. Lipon had a solid pro debut and wasnt shy about it, leading the Ice Caps in penalty minutes with 136. Not the biggest blueliner on the block, Brenden Kichton was initially a fifth-round pick of the Islanders, was not signed, and then was drafted in the seventh-round by Winnipeg in 2013. A heady player who can quarterback a power play, Kichton ranked sixth among AHL defencemen in points as a rookie pro. A third-round pick in 2010, Julian Melchiori is a big, stay-at-home defenceman who has missed time with injuries in each of his first two pro seasons. Eric ODell turns 24 this summer, which puts him on the older side as a prospect but, in addition to scoring 97 points in 101 AHL games over the past two seasons, he also played 30 games for the Jets last season (3 G, 4 A, 51.0 CF%) so hes able to contribute now.

Wheelers is big and can move, which allows him to create mismatches depending on what gives him the advantage on a particular defender. Evander Kane uses his terrific speed to generate shots at an elite level, but has been a relatively low-percentage finisher. Some of that is due to not getting first-unit power play time and, even at even-strength, could use better linemates to help him out. That doesnt absolve Kane of any responsibility for his production, which has dipped since scoring 30 goals in 74 games in 2011-2012, but theres still a lot to like about what he brings to the game. After scoing 23 goals and a career-high 64 points, there is a case to be made for Bryan Little as an advanced stats All-Star as one of a handful of players to face top-tier competition, start more shifts in the defensive zone and still have a relative Corsi over plus-10 per 60 minutes. The common perception of Little might be that hes a good second-line centre but the 26-year-old is coming off a season in which he was a full-fledged No. 1 pivot. Team captain Andrew Ladd has scored 98 goals over the past four seasons, ranking 24th in that span. Hes a reliable two-way player that can be used in any situation and he is, averaging 19:46 per game in four seasons with the franchise. Mark Scheifele had rounded into form, with 12 goals and 29 points in the last 39 games he played before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Considering that Scheifele managed five points in his first 24 games last season, and had his Corsi percentage rise from 46.7% to 49.7% over those splits, counts as positive indications that he could fulfill the second-line centre role going forward. A sports hernia cost Jim Slater two-thirds of last season, and hes mustered a grand total of two goals and four points in 53 games over the past two seasons. While hes hit double-digits in goals three times in his career, Slater has also missed at least a dozen games in six of nine seasons, so its getting difficult to count on him, even in a fourth-line role. Though he has a paltry 15 points in 136 career games, big winge Eric Tangradi held his own in a depth role last season, putting up positive possession stats. As an inexpensive fourth-line option, the Jets could do worse. Like most forwards that play less than six minutes per game, Anthony Peluso cant risk playing too many minutes, lest he be exposed. Hes a scrapper who can handle the big boys, though, so as long as the Jets are going to leave a roster spot for that role, Peluso can fill it. At the same time, they could probably do without. 26-year-old Michael Frolik established that he hasnt completely forgotten how to create offence, scoring 42 points, his most since 2009-2010. Hes still a low-percentage finisher, but a versatile forward who can play both ends of the rink. A couple years removed from a career-best 28-point season, Matt Halischuk has been battling to keep a regular spot in the lineup and, last season, he was overrun in possession terms. Hes a viable fourth-line forward, but also one that could quickly be replaced. 24-year-old James Wright has good size, but there isnt much else justifying his place on an NHL roster. Last season, he was one of eight forwards since 2000-2001 to play at least 500 minutes and not register a single goal. The Jets have a solid core of forwards, but can use a couple of top-nine forwards to effectively take spots of unrestricted free agents Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Given the free agent alternatives at centre, the Jets could be okay doing a short-term deal with Jokinen and then find a solid checking forward, like Blake Comeau, Jesse Winchester or Daniel Winnik could round out the group nicely.

A 20-year-old who can skate, hit and contribute offensively, Trouba will have more responsibility heaped on him, but he has the makings of a No. 1 on the blueline. Back surgery ended Grant Clitsomes season early, but he was logging nearly 20 minutes a night, with positive possession stats at the time of his injury. Clitsome can move the puck and play a solid game, though hes never played more than 63 games in an NHL season, so theres still some unknown regarding his performance over the course of a full season. While Tobias Enstroms offensive production dipped to a career-low 0.37 points per game last season, he still delivered relatively steady play while facing tough competition. Hes small, but mobile and his ability to move the puck is important to the Jets defence. Zach Bogosian hasnt really made the mark that was expected when he was drafted third overall in 2008 and, on top of being bitten by the injury bug -- hes missed 70 games over the past four seasons -- Bogosian hasnt been able to successfully lock into a shutdown role. Thats the objective, but there is still some unexplored potential in the 23-year-olds game. A rugged veteran, Mark Stuart combined for 389 hits and blocked shots last season, ranking third among defencemen (behind Cody Franson and Radko Gudas), so theres no denying that he lays his body on the line. He also tends to spend more of his time in the Jets end of the ice, though last season he was taking on tougher matchups, playing more minutes once Byfuglien moved up. Paul Postma hasnt been able to hold down a regular spot in the lineup, playing 57 career games and while he has some puck skills and a big shot that suit him on the power play, Postma struggled at even-strength last season. Between Postma, Keaton Ellerby and pending unrestricted free agent Adam Pardy, the Jets had a battle for playing time at the bottom of the defence depth chart. Ellerby could take on more minutes if Pardy departs, but that may just mean a more regular turn in the lineup. The wildcard could be top prospect Joshua Morrissey, who is a fast-rising offensive defenceman. If he makes the club, that could raise the groups ceiling.

Its one thing to be at the bottom of the league in save percentage and another to continually get played at a starters workload. The Jets have invested money in Pavelec, but its really had to rationalize him in a starters role, especially if the team considers itself ready to contend for a playoff spot. There may be challenges to getting rid of Pavelec, not least of which is that Cheveldayoff has said that Pavelec will be the No. 1 goalie next year, but he also may not be particularly appealing to other teams with the Jets paying half of his salary. Given how much it has been a problem lately, though, the Jets have to investigate opportunities to upgrade their goaltending. A trade for Manitoba native James Reimer could work, or signing a free agent like Jonas Hiller, Brian Elliott, Ray Emery or Tomas Vokoun could be worthwhile. Top Prospects Player Pos.

If the Jets are willing to live with the mistakes of a smart, teenaged offensive defenceman, then Morrissey (who has six points in eight AHL playoff games) could be a viable challenger for an NHL job as a 19-year-old. An undersized playmaker, Nicolas Petan was a second-rond pick last summer and has been tearing up the WHL for the past couple seasons. Between regular season and playoffs, hes tallied 289 points (in 176 games) and while size may be an issue, the only way to find out if its going to pose a problem is to wait and see how he does at the next level. A 6-foot-5 winger-turned-centre, Adam Lowry completed his first pro season and is probably not far from challenging for a spot in Winnipeg. The third-round pick from 2011 picked up his play after Christmas, scoring 28 points in his last 43 regular-season games. One of the games better goaltending prospects, Eric Comrie was a second-round pick in 2013. He struggled in a couple of AHL games at seasons end, but had a tremendous season in the WHL. Hes also only 18-year-old, so its going to take time before hes the answer to the Jets goaltending questions. Drafted in the third round in 2012, Scott Kosmachuk has improved steadily throughout his junior career and had a monster year with a powerhouse Guelph team in the OHL. He can make the jump to the AHL next season to see if his scoring will come to the pro game with him. A solidly-built centre who was picked in the fourth round last year, Andrew Copp is making quick progress, coming off a strong sophomore season at Michigan while also putting up five points in five games at the World Juniors for Team USA. Theres not much more that Connor Hellebuyck can do in college to raise his profile. Through two years at UMass-Lowell, Hellebuyck has a .946 save percentage and a dozen shutouts. Hes signed with the Jets and might be expected to start in the American Hockey League, but if he keep stopping pucks, there should be room for him. An aggressive winger picked in the third roudn last summer, J.C. Lipon had a solid pro debut and wasnt shy about it, leading the Ice Caps in penalty minutes with 136. Not the biggest blueliner on the block, Brenden Kichton was initially a fifth-round pick of the Islanders, was not signed, and then was drafted in the seventh-round by Winnipeg in 2013. A heady player who can quarterback a power play, Kichton ranked sixth among AHL defencemen in points as a rookie pro. A third-round pick in 2010, Julian Melchiori is a big, stay-at-home defenceman who has missed time with injuries in each of his first two pro seasons. Eric ODell turns 24 this summer, which puts him on the older side as a prospect but, in addition to scoring 97 points in 101 AHL games over the past two seasons, he also played 30 games for the Jets last season (3 G, 4 A, 51.0 CF%) so hes able to contribute now.

ORCHARD PARK, N. Cheap Seahawks Jerseys .Y. -- Mario Williams accepted his second AFC defensive player of the week honour much like he did his first one of the season. He shrugged. "Just another day to me," the Buffalo defensive end said Wednesday. Williams production has been anything but routine this season for someone finally beginning to play to the "Super Mario" expectations that came with the six-year $100 million contract he signed in March 2012. With 10 sacks through seven games, hes tied for second in the NFL and one short of surpassing his season total of last year. Calling it "progress," Williams acknowledged this is the best hes felt both mentally and physically since breaking into the NFL in 2006, when he was drafted first overall by Houston. "I think maybe its time," Williams said. "I dont know, maybe this is as good a time for me in general as far as my career." Putting aside the frustrations and criticism that came with his inconsistent production last year, Williams finds himself benefiting from his new multi-purpose role in first-year co-ordinator Mike Pettines attacking style of defence. Its one that has allowed Williams to become a difference-maker in helping Buffalo (3-4) get off to a better-than-expected start in preparing to play at New Orleans (5-1) on Sunday. Williams has played a key role in two victories. He had career-best 4 1/2 sacks in a 24-23 win over Carolina on Sept. 15. Last weekend, Williams had two sacks, his second forcing a fumble that set up Dan Carpenters game-winning 31-yard field goal with 33 seconds left in a 23-21 win at Miami. Former safety Rodney Harrison, who is now a broadcaster, has altered his tune on Williams. "When hes healthy, he is a different player," said Harrison, who criticized Williams for blaming a wrist injury for hindering his performance last year. On Monday, Dolphins offensive co-ordinator Mike Sherman was so impressed by Williams dominant day that he was began referring to him as a future Hall of Famer. That might be premature, but Williams has already nudged his way ahead of Bills Hall of Famer Bruce Smith -- the NFLs all-time sacks leader -- in a few categories. Williams 4 1/2 sacks against Carolina broke Smiths team record. And his 10 sacks through seven games are one more than Smiths best start in 1997. "Bruce, to be mentioned in the same sentence is obviously a great feeling," Williams said. "But for myself, my biggest thing is not really counting the sacks I got, its focusing on the ones I didnt get." By Williams count, he should be at 15 or 16 by now. The ones he has gotten have helped transform the identity of what had previously been a stale and porous defence in Buffalo. The Bills 23 sacks match the teams second-highest total through seven games. The pass-rush also is paying off in other ways by generating turnovers. The Bills have a league-leading 12 interceptions, and are tied for third with 15 takeaways. This is a defence that hasnt averaged more than two sacks a game since totalling 40 in 2006. And this was a defence that was so bad under former co-ordinator Dave Wannstedt last year that it allowed a combined 97 points and 1,101 yards in consecutive losses to New England and San Francisco. Williams credits the off-season arrival of Pettine, who was lured to Buffalo after spending the previous four seasons in the same job with the New York Jets. Pettines defence relies on players lining up at various positions -- including Williams -- to keep opposing offences guessing on who might be blitzing. Thats a big switch from last year, when Williams traditionally lined up opposite the left tackle. "It all started with the mentality, just (Pettine) coming in and pretty much wiping the slate clean," Williams said. Coach Doug Marrone said its a combination of the defence and Williams. "I think its a little bit more difficult when you have a player that moves around," Marrone said. "But hes an outstanding player. I mean, I think you could put him anywhere and hell be productive." Defensive tackle Alan Branch has been impressed no matter who deserves the credit. "I dont know if its the scheme," Branch said. "I just feel bad for the offensive linemen going against him just because hes a monster when he goes out there."

What else could go wrong?Well, the answers this season have been anything and everything, and that was the case again. Not only did Michael Vicks pass end up incomplete, the quarterback was slammed to the ground by Chiefs linebacker Josh Mauga and walked woozily off the field.Vick eventually returned to finish the 24-10 loss Sunday, the Jets eighth straight defeat, but only after he went through the NFLs concussion protocol and was cleared to continue.We had some opportunities and we didnt capitalize on them, said Vick, who started in place of the injured Geno Smith. Whenever that happens, and the other team do capitalize on theirs you dont finding yourself winning the game.Smith was inactive with a shoulder injury, leaving Matt Simms to also play one series.New York actually moved the ball well most of the afternoon, utilizing Percy Harvin in the running and passing games to perfection. But the Jets kept misfiring in Chiefs territory, settling for a field goal just before halftime and then turning it over on downs three times.The result was another defeat tacked onto their longest losing streak since 1996, when the Jets went 1-15 in their final year under Rich Kotite. The franchise has never lost nine in a row, an embarrassment theyll try to avoid when they play Pittsburgh next Sunday.I think no different than the rest of our team, the rest of our organization, Ryan said. We all feel the same way. Were stung by it. Shoot, wed do anything for a win.Ryan said after the game that he would stick with Vick at quarterback next week.I thought he played well, Ryan said, and well give him a shot against Pittsburgh.Meanwhile, Alex Smith threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas city, and Jamaal Charles ran for another score. Tight ends Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce had the TD catches.I feel OK about where were at, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. We just won. Normally I feel good. But I like the aggresssiveness that the team is playing with. Seahawks Jerseys Authentic China. That was evident from the opening drive, when the Chiefs moved 81 yards in relative ease. Charles was the workhorse, carrying six times and capping the drive with a 1-yard TD plunge.After the Chiefs forced three-and-out, it took them just seven more plays to score again — this time on a play that encapsulated the way everything has been going right for Kansas City, and the way everything has been going wrong for New York.With first-and-goal at the 2-yard line, Smiths pass was knocked down by Calvin Pace, but the ball went right to Fasano. The tight end caught the inadvertent pass on his rump, rolled over the goal line and gave the Chiefs a stunning — if not humorous — touchdown for a 14-0 lead.Meanwhile, the Chiefs defence was getting after Vick every time he dropped to pass.Justin Houston, who had 4 1/2 sacks of Vick when he faced the Eagles a year ago, had two more on the elusive quarterback Sunday. Defensive tackle Dontari Poe also tracked Vick down for a sack, all before Mauga knocked him from the game with his crushing blow in the fourth quarter.Its a group effort, Houston said. I cant do it without everybody else.The only bright spot for the Jets was the play of Harvin, who caught 11 passes for 129 yards in his second game since getting traded from Seattle. Harvin showed the speed and shiftiness that the Jets were hoping he would provide when they made the deal.It was just far too little in a game dominated by Kansas Citys defence.Right now, I think the offence is moving the ball pretty well. Were just not making the big plays at the right time, Harvin said. Defence, we stopped them pretty well. But when we needed that clutch play, we couldnt get it.Notes: The Jets had 24 sacks coming into the game. Jason Babin had their only one Sunday with 2 minutes left in the game. ...

New York, NY (SportsNetwork. Marquette King Jersey .com) - A pair of storied programs will meet up at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night as part of the Jimmy V Classic, as the Indiana Hoosiers take on the fourth-ranked Louisville Cardinals. After suffering a head-scratching loss at home to Eastern Washington on Nov. 24, Indiana has righted the ship with three straight wins to pull to 7-1. The Hoosiers had one of their most dominating performances of the season on Saturday, as they closed out a season-opening eight-game homestand with a 95-49 triumph over Savannah State. Louisville also finished a lengthy homestand in style in its most recent game, as it dismissed FIU on Friday, 82-57, to remain unbeaten in seven tries this season. This marks the Cardinals second neutral-court contest on a national stage, having previously downed Minnesota in the Armed Forces Classic in Puerto Rico in the season opener, 81-68. Indiana leads the all-time series with Louisville by a 10-6 count, and this is the first matchup between the programs since 2003. The Hoosiers barely broke a sweat in their most recent game, as they opened up a commanding 43-17 lead at intermission and cruised to the 46-point victory from there. They outshot Savannah State from the field, 57.4 percent to 32.1 percent, had an outstanding night from 3-point range (10-of-21) and won the rebounding battle, 42-24. Yogi Ferrell and James Blackmon, Jr. paced the winning effort with 18 points apiece, with Ferrell adding seven assists as well. Troy Williams and Robert Johnson netted 12 and 10 points, respectively. Indiana has played at a high level on the offensive end of the court this season, as it shoots 52.4 percent from the field (including 43.9 percent from beyond the arc) on its way to 88.4 ppg, which is more than enough to support a modest scoring defense (69.2 ppg). Blackmon scores 19.5 ppg and has been lights out from long range (26-of-48). Ferrell is an elite playmaker on the perimeter with 17.3 ppg and 5.8 apg, while Williams (12.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Johnson (11.1 ppg) have also been stellar. The Cardinals faced an early deficit in their contest with FIU but quickly turned things around with an 18-0 burst and never looked back from there en route to the 25-point win. They were lights out from the field in shooting 57.1 percent, and they paired that with an excellent defensive effort in forcing FIU into more turnovers (25) than field goals (20). Pacing five players in double figures was Anton Gill, who provided a spark off the bench with 15 points. Montrezl Harrell tallied a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds, Wayne Blackshear and Terry Rozier scored 12 points apiece and Chris Jones chipped in with 11 points. Its no surprise that Louisville is one of the nations top-ranked teams considering it has built up an astounding +26.7 scoring margin. The nations third-ranked scoring defense (49.3 ppg) has stifled opponents to the tune of nearly 20 turnovers per game.

Bettors knew who they wanted, though, putting early money on Denver and making the Broncos a slight favourite to beat the Seattle Seahawks in most of this citys legal betting parlours. Denver was favoured by 1 point at several books in the early betting, while others had the Broncos as high as a 3-point pick. The move to the Broncos came after some books had initially made the Seahawks as much as a 2-point pick in the game. "Were just trying to figure out what the market will be and get a feel of where money will go," said Jay Kornegay, who runs the LVH sports book and initially had the Seahawks favoured. "At this point it doesnt take a lot to move the line." At the South Point sports book, Jimmy Vaccaro was on the phone talking about where he thought the line was going to go when a bettor came to the window and put $25,000 on the Broncos. That moved the game from pick em to the Broncos being favoured by 1 point, as the odds were adjusted to take in the bet. "Take your best shot," Vaccaro said. "Its an intriguing matchup with no clear cut favourite." Time was just running out in Seattles win over the San Francisco 49ers when the first odds for the Super Bowl were posted at most books. Bettors quickly reacted by putting most of the early money on the Broncos in an initial burst oof enthusiasm for a game so even that some think it will break the record of $98. Josey Jewell Broncos Jersey. 9 million bet in Nevadas legal sports books last year. "Its incredible already, theyre lined up betting this game like it started a half hour from now," Vaccaro said. "If we dont do $100 million on this game Id be really puzzled." Kornegay said he made the Seahawks a 2-point favourite in his opening line because the Seahawks have a slightly higher power rating than the Broncos and a defence that might be the key in a game played outdoors in what could be cold temperatures. "With the game being in New York and the early forecast for below normal temperatures that favours a defensive team," he said. "It also favours a running team and thats certainly an advantage to the Seahawks." Bettors, though, liked Peyton Manning and his chances of winning another Super Bowl, and they didnt wait long to bet the Broncos. Sports books adjust the line to try to balance money on each team, and the LVH went from posting Seattle as a 2-point favourite to Denver being favoured by 1 point in less than an hour. Most big bettors -- the so-called "sharps" who can move a line all by themselves -- wait until much closer to the game before placing their bets. "Its all small stuff now," Vaccaro said.

RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- Top-ranked Rafael Nadal survived a scare at the Rio Open on Saturday, fighting off two match points before defeating fellow Spaniard Pablo Andujar 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (10) to advance to the final. Hanley Ramirez Red Sox Jersey . Nadal will next face Alexandr Dolgopolov of Ukraine, who upset second-seeded David Ferrer 6-4, 6-4 on Rios outdoor clay. Nadal has been almost unbeatable on clay in his career, compiling a 297-21 record, the best in the Open era. His last loss on the surface was 10 months ago against Novak Djokovic in the Monte Carlo Masters. But this was not his night as he needed nearly three hours to defeat Andujar. Nadal is returning from a back injury he sustained in the final of the Australian Open four weeks ago -- a match he lost to Stanislas Wawrinka. "I felt empty the whole match," he said. "It was very humid, and this was the toughest day of all. I just didnt feel that great physically, and Im not talking about the back. I just didnt feel that great. "It was close because he played well, and I didnt play my best," Nadal added. Nadal acknowledged his victory was lucky. "The tiebreak was a lottery," he said. "But I played better in the tiebreak than the rest of the match." Andujar had two match points in the third-set tiebreaker but couldnt convert either. "I played one of the best matches of my life," he said. "Maybe the best. But I had a great one across (the net) from me." Dolgopolov, who had beaten Ferrer only once in seven previous matches, won handily and didnt flinch. "I always have these type matches with him, and usually at the end he would beat me," the Ukrainian said. "I knew Id have to make those shots. If you dont win the points against him, he takes it away. Im really happy I didnt get tight and give away a lot of shots." Dolgopolov has won two previous ATP titles. Ferrer won the Copa Claro last weekend in Buenos Aires, his third consecutive title in that clay-court event. He has 21 ATP titles. In the womens tournament, top-seeded Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic and fifth-seeded Kurumi Nara of Japan will face off in the final. Zakopalova defeated local hope Teliana Pereira 6-2, 6-1, and Nara won over Nastassja Burnett of Italy 6-4, 3-6, 6-2. Zakopalova will be aiming for her third WTA singles title. She won two in 2004, and has since been a losing finalist 11 times. This will be Naras first WTA singles final. "Im very surprised because its on a clay court," said Nara, a university student who prefers hard courts. Wade Boggs Red Sox Jersey .

Byfuglien is an interesting case for the Jets, having shifted from defence to forward part way through last season. While Big Buff is an effective winger, his preference is to play defence, which might make him appealing as a trade candidate for other clubs that are willing to accomodate that desire. But, if Byfuglien sticks around, the Jets have a quality group of forwards, with potential to be really good if Evander Kane and Mark Scheifele continue to develop. Their defence isnt as strong, overall, without Byfuglien, but Jacob Troubas strong rookie season was encouraging. Basically, the Jets have a competitive group of skaters. Not great, necessarily, but competitive. Then, it comes to goaltending, and that appears to be the area that needs fixing, only GM Kevin Cheveldayoff has backed Ondrej Pavelec as the teams starting goaltender going into next season. Maybe thats the stance that a GM has to take with a guy under contract for three more seasons, but his performance has been crippling to the Jets playoff chances and if he starts 50-plus games again next season, that is a serious roll of the dice that the Jets are taking with a goaltender that has finished with a league average save percentage once in five NHL seasons. The Jets did fare better under new head coach Paul Maurice, going 18-12-5 in the last 35 games, but that was largely due to favourable percentages and their possession stats only improved slightly over that span. They are close enough to contend for a playoff spot next season, with a couple of savvy moves this summer and further development from young players, but if they dont do something to upgrade in goal, it may all for naught.

That presumes that Byfuglien doesnt get moved in the summer, which is always a possibility, but also operates under the premise that the Jets are better with Byfuglien at forward. Byfuglien, individually, had a 51.7% Corsi percentage before he was moved to forward and 48.0% after. That aside, in 32 games at (mostly) forward, Byfuglien had 10 goals, 12 assists and 102 shots on goal. On a per-game basis, those numbers would have placed him with pretty nice company last season. Its a little interesting that the bottom name on that list is Brent Burns, the Sharks winger who also used to play defence. Over the past three seasons, Blake Wheeler has 174 points, which ranks 22nd in the league over that span and last years 50 even-strength points was tied for 13th in the league with David Krejci and Thomas Vanek. Wheelers is big and can move, which allows him to create mismatches depending on what gives him the advantage on a particular defender. Evander Kane uses his terrific speed to generate shots at an elite level, but has been a relatively low-percentage finisher. Some of that is due to not getting first-unit power play time and, even at even-strength, could use better linemates to help him out. That doesnt absolve Kane of any responsibility for his production, which has dipped since scoring 30 goals in 74 games in 2011-2012, but theres still a lot to like about what he brings to the game. After scoing 23 goals and a career-high 64 points, there is a case to be made for Bryan Little as an advanced stats All-Star as one of a handful of players to face top-tier competition, start more shifts in the defensive zone and still have a relative Corsi over plus-10 per 60 minutes. The common perception of Little might be that hes a good second-line centre but the 26-year-old is coming off a season in which he was a full-fledged No. 1 pivot. Team captain Andrew Ladd has scored 98 goals over the past four seasons, ranking 24th in that span. Hes a reliable two-way player that can be used in any situation and he is, averaging 19:46 per game in four seasons with the franchise. Mark Scheifele had rounded into form, with 12 goals and 29 points in the last 39 games he played before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Considering that Scheifele managed five points in his first 24 games last season, and had his Corsi percentage rise from 46.7% to 49.7% over those splits, counts as positive indications that he could fulfill the second-line centre role going forward. A sports hernia cost Jim Slater two-thirds of last season, and hes mustered a grand total of two goals and four points in 53 games over the past two seasons. While hes hit double-digits in goals three times in his career, Slater has also missed at least a dozen games in six of nine seasons, so its getting difficult to count on him, even in a fourth-line role. Though he has a paltry 15 points in 136 career games, big winge Eric Tangradi held his own in a depth role last season, putting up positive possession stats. As an inexpensive fourth-line option, the Jets could do worse. Like most forwards that play less than six minutes per game, Anthony Peluso cant risk playing too many minutes, lest he be exposed. Hes a scrapper who can handle the big boys, though, so as long as the Jets are going to leave a roster spot for that role, Peluso can fill it. At the same time, they could probably do without. 26-year-old Michael Frolik established that he hasnt completely forgotten how to create offence, scoring 42 points, his most since 2009-2010. Hes still a low-percentage finisher, but a versatile forward who can play both ends of the rink. A couple years removed from a career-best 28-point season, Matt Halischuk has been battling to keep a regular spot in the lineup and, last season, he was overrun in possession terms. Hes a viable fourth-line forward, but also one that could quickly be replaced. 24-year-old James Wright has good size, but there isnt much else justifying his place on an NHL roster. Last season, he was one of eight forwards since 2000-2001 to play at least 500 minutes and not register a single goal. The Jets have a solid core of forwards, but can use a couple of top-nine forwards to effectively take spots of unrestricted free agents Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Given the free agent alternatives at centre, the Jets could be okay doing a short-term deal with Jokinen and then find a solid checking forward, like Blake Comeau, Jesse Winchester or Daniel Winnik could round out the group nicely.

A 20-year-old who can skate, hit and contribute offensively, Trouba will have more responsibility heaped on him, but he has the makings of a No. 1 on the blueline. Back surgery ended Grant Clitsomes season early, but he was logging nearly 20 minutes a night, with positive possession stats at the time of his injury. Clitsome can move the puck and play a solid game, though hes never played more than 63 games in an NHL season, so theres still some unknown regarding his performance over the course of a full season. While Tobias Enstroms offensive production dipped to a career-low 0.37 points per game last season, he still delivered relatively steady play while facing tough competition. Hes small, but mobile and his ability to move the puck is important to the Jets defence. Zach Bogosian hasnt really made the mark that was expected when he was drafted third overall in 2008 and, on top of being bitten by the injury bug -- hes missed 70 games over the past four seasons -- Bogosian hasnt been able to successfully lock into a shutdown role. Thats the objective, but there is still some unexplored potential in the 23-year-olds game. A rugged veteran, Mark Stuart combined for 389 hits and blocked shots last season, ranking third among defencemen (behind Cody Franson and Radko Gudas), so theres no denying that he lays his body on the line. He also tends to spend more of his time in the Jets end of the ice, though last season he was taking on tougher matchups, playing more minutes once Byfuglien moved up. Paul Postma hasnt been able to hold down a regular spot in the lineup, playing 57 career games and while he has some puck skills and a big shot that suit him on the power play, Postma struggled at even-strength last season. Between Postma, Keaton Ellerby and pending unrestricted free agent Adam Pardy, the Jets had a battle for playing time at the bottom of the defence depth chart. Ellerby could take on more minutes if Pardy departs, but that may just mean a more regular turn in the lineup. The wildcard could be top prospect Joshua Morrissey, who is a fast-rising offensive defenceman. If he makes the club, that could raise the groups ceiling. Returning Goaltender Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Cap Hit Ondrej Pavelec 60.64 57 22 26 7 3.01 .901 $3.9M Free Agent Goaltender Player Rating GP W L OTL GAA SV% Class 13-14 Cap Hit Al Montoya 68.70 28 13 8 3 2.30 .920 UFA $601K Over the past three seasons, Ondrej Pavelec has cost the Jets approximately 45 goals compared to the league average, according to Hockey References Goals Saved Above Average measure. Its one thing to be at the bottom of the league in save percentage and another to continually get played at a starters workload. The Jets have invested money in Pavelec, but its really had to rationalize him in a starters role, especially if the team considers itself ready to contend for a playoff spot. There may be challenges to getting rid of Pavelec, not least of which is that Cheveldayoff has said that Pavelec will be the No. 1 goalie next year, but he also may not be particularly appealing to other teams with the Jets paying half of his salary. Given how much it has been a problem lately, though, the Jets have to investigate opportunities to upgrade their goaltending. A trade for Manitoba native James Reimer could work, or signing a free agent like Jonas Hiller, Brian Elliott, Ray Emery or Tomas Vokoun could be worthwhile. Top Prospects Player Pos.

If the Jets are willing to live with the mistakes of a smart, teenaged offensive defenceman, then Morrissey (who has six points in eight AHL playoff games) could be a viable challenger for an NHL job as a 19-year-old. An undersized playmaker, Nicolas Petan was a second-rond pick last summer and has been tearing up the WHL for the past couple seasons. Between regular season and playoffs, hes tallied 289 points (in 176 games) and while size may be an issue, the only way to find out if its going to pose a problem is to wait and see how he does at the next level. A 6-foot-5 winger-turned-centre, Adam Lowry completed his first pro season and is probably not far from challenging for a spot in Winnipeg. The third-round pick from 2011 picked up his play after Christmas, scoring 28 points in his last 43 regular-season games. One of the games better goaltending prospects, Eric Comrie was a second-round pick in 2013. He struggled in a couple of AHL games at seasons end, but had a tremendous season in the WHL. Hes also only 18-year-old, so its going to take time before hes the answer to the Jets goaltending questions. Drafted in the third round in 2012, Scott Kosmachuk has improved steadily throughout his junior career and had a monster year with a powerhouse Guelph team in the OHL. He can make the jump to the AHL next season to see if his scoring will come to the pro game with him. A solidly-built centre who was picked in the fourth round last year, Andrew Copp is making quick progress, coming off a strong sophomore season at Michigan while also putting up five points in five games at the World Juniors for Team USA. Theres not much more that Connor Hellebuyck can do in college to raise his profile. Through two years at UMass-Lowell, Hellebuyck has a .946 save percentage and a dozen shutouts. Hes signed with the Jets and might be expected to start in the American Hockey League, but if he keep stopping pucks, there should be room for him. An aggressive winger picked in the third roudn last summer, J.C. Lipon had a solid pro debut and wasnt shy about it, leading the Ice Caps in penalty minutes with 136. Not the biggest blueliner on the block, Brenden Kichton was initially a fifth-round pick of the Islanders, was not signed, and then was drafted in the seventh-round by Winnipeg in 2013. A heady player who can quarterback a power play, Kichton ranked sixth among AHL defencemen in points as a rookie pro. A third-round pick in 2010, Julian Melchiori is a big, stay-at-home defenceman who has missed time with injuries in each of his first two pro seasons. Eric ODell turns 24 this summer, which puts him on the older side as a prospect but, in addition to scoring 97 points in 101 AHL games over the past two seasons, he also played 30 games for the Jets last season (3 G, 4 A, 51.0 CF%) so hes able to contribute now.

That presumes that Byfuglien doesnt get moved in the summer, which is always a possibility, but also operates under the premise that the Jets are better with Byfuglien at forward. Byfuglien, individually, had a 51.7% Corsi percentage before he was moved to forward and 48.0% after. That aside, in 32 games at (mostly) forward, Byfuglien had 10 goals, 12 assists and 102 shots on goal. On a per-game basis, those numbers would have placed him with pretty nice company last season. Its a little interesting that the bottom name on that list is Brent Burns, the Sharks winger who also used to play defence. Over the past three seasons, Blake Wheeler has 174 points, which ranks 22nd in the league over that span and last years 50 even-strength points was tied for 13th in the league with David Krejci and Thomas Vanek. Wheelers is big and can move, which allows him to create mismatches depending on what gives him the advantage on a particular defender. Evander Kane uses his terrific speed to generate shots at an elite level, but has been a relatively low-percentage finisher. Some of that is due to not getting first-unit power play time and, even at even-strength, could use better linemates to help him out. That doesnt absolve Kane of any responsibility for his production, which has dipped since scoring 30 goals in 74 games in 2011-2012, but theres still a lot to like about what he brings to the game. After scoing 23 goals and a career-high 64 points, there is a case to be made for Bryan Little as an advanced stats All-Star as one of a handful of players to face top-tier competition, start more shifts in the defensive zone and still have a relative Corsi over plus-10 per 60 minutes. The common perception of Little might be that hes a good second-line centre but the 26-year-old is coming off a season in which he was a full-fledged No. 1 pivot. Team captain Andrew Ladd has scored 98 goals over the past four seasons, ranking 24th in that span. Hes a reliable two-way player that can be used in any situation and he is, averaging 19:46 per game in four seasons with the franchise. Mark Scheifele had rounded into form, with 12 goals and 29 points in the last 39 games he played before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Considering that Scheifele managed five points in his first 24 games last season, and had his Corsi percentage rise from 46.7% to 49.7% over those splits, counts as positive indications that he could fulfill the second-line centre role going forward. A sports hernia cost Jim Slater two-thirds of last season, and hes mustered a grand total of two goals and four points in 53 games over the past two seasons. While hes hit double-digits in goals three times in his career, Slater has also missed at least a dozen games in six of nine seasons, so its getting difficult to count on him, even in a fourth-line role. Though he has a paltry 15 points in 136 career games, big winge Eric Tangradi held his own in a depth role last season, putting up positive possession stats. As an inexpensive fourth-line option, the Jets could do worse. Like most forwards that play less than six minutes per game, Anthony Peluso cant risk playing too many minutes, lest he be exposed. Hes a scrapper who can handle the big boys, though, so as long as the Jets are going to leave a roster spot for that role, Peluso can fill it. At the same time, they could probably do without. 26-year-old Michael Frolik established that he hasnt completely forgotten how to create offence, scoring 42 points, his most since 2009-2010. Hes still a low-percentage finisher, but a versatile forward who can play both ends of the rink. A couple years removed from a career-best 28-point season, Matt Halischuk has been battling to keep a regular spot in the lineup and, last season, he was overrun in possession terms. Hes a viable fourth-line forward, but also one that could quickly be replaced. 24-year-old James Wright has good size, but there isnt much else justifying his place on an NHL roster. Last season, he was one of eight forwards since 2000-2001 to play at least 500 minutes and not register a single goal. The Jets have a solid core of forwards, but can use a couple of top-nine forwards to effectively take spots of unrestricted free agents Olli Jokinen and Devin Setoguchi. Given the free agent alternatives at centre, the Jets could be okay doing a short-term deal with Jokinen and then find a solid checking forward, like Blake Comeau, Jesse Winchester or Daniel Winnik could round out the group nicely.

A 20-year-old who can skate, hit and contribute offensively, Trouba will have more responsibility heaped on him, but he has the makings of a No. 1 on the blueline. Back surgery ended Grant Clitsomes season early, but he was logging nearly 20 minutes a night, with positive possession stats at the time of his injury. Clitsome can move the puck and play a solid game, though hes never played more than 63 games in an NHL season, so theres still some unknown regarding his performance over the course of a full season. While Tobias Enstroms offensive production dipped to a career-low 0.37 points per game last season, he still delivered relatively steady play while facing tough competition. Hes small, but mobile and his ability to move the puck is important to the Jets defence. Zach Bogosian hasnt really made the mark that was expected when he was drafted third overall in 2008 and, on top of being bitten by the injury bug -- hes missed 70 games over the past four seasons -- Bogosian hasnt been able to successfully lock into a shutdown role. Thats the objective, but there is still some unexplored potential in the 23-year-olds game. A rugged veteran, Mark Stuart combined for 389 hits and blocked shots last season, ranking third among defencemen (behind Cody Franson and Radko Gudas), so theres no denying that he lays his body on the line. He also tends to spend more of his time in the Jets end of the ice, though last season he was taking on tougher matchups, playing more minutes once Byfuglien moved up. Paul Postma hasnt been able to hold down a regular spot in the lineup, playing 57 career games and while he has some puck skills and a big shot that suit him on the power play, Postma struggled at even-strength last season. Between Postma, Keaton Ellerby and pending unrestricted free agent Adam Pardy, the Jets had a battle for playing time at the bottom of the defence depth chart. Ellerby could take on more minutes if Pardy departs, but that may just mean a more regular turn in the lineup. The wildcard could be top prospect Joshua Morrissey, who is a fast-rising offensive defenceman. If he makes the club, that could raise the groups ceiling.

Its one thing to be at the bottom of the league in save percentage and another to continually get played at a starters workload. The Jets have invested money in Pavelec, but its really had to rationalize him in a starters role, especially if the team considers itself ready to contend for a playoff spot. There may be challenges to getting rid of Pavelec, not least of which is that Cheveldayoff has said that Pavelec will be the No. 1 goalie next year, but he also may not be particularly appealing to other teams with the Jets paying half of his salary. Given how much it has been a problem lately, though, the Jets have to investigate opportunities to upgrade their goaltending. A trade for Manitoba native James Reimer could work, or signing a free agent like Jonas Hiller, Brian Elliott, Ray Emery or Tomas Vokoun could be worthwhile. Top Prospects Player Pos.

If the Jets are willing to live with the mistakes of a smart, teenaged offensive defenceman, then Morrissey (who has six points in eight AHL playoff games) could be a viable challenger for an NHL job as a 19-year-old. An undersized playmaker, Nicolas Petan was a second-rond pick last summer and has been tearing up the WHL for the past couple seasons. Between regular season and playoffs, hes tallied 289 points (in 176 games) and while size may be an issue, the only way to find out if its going to pose a problem is to wait and see how he does at the next level. A 6-foot-5 winger-turned-centre, Adam Lowry completed his first pro season and is probably not far from challenging for a spot in Winnipeg. The third-round pick from 2011 picked up his play after Christmas, scoring 28 points in his last 43 regular-season games. One of the games better goaltending prospects, Eric Comrie was a second-round pick in 2013. He struggled in a couple of AHL games at seasons end, but had a tremendous season in the WHL. Hes also only 18-year-old, so its going to take time before hes the answer to the Jets goaltending questions. Drafted in the third round in 2012, Scott Kosmachuk has improved steadily throughout his junior career and had a monster year with a powerhouse Guelph team in the OHL. He can make the jump to the AHL next season to see if his scoring will come to the pro game with him. A solidly-built centre who was picked in the fourth round last year, Andrew Copp is making quick progress, coming off a strong sophomore season at Michigan while also putting up five points in five games at the World Juniors for Team USA. Theres not much more that Connor Hellebuyck can do in college to raise his profile. Through two years at UMass-Lowell, Hellebuyck has a .946 save percentage and a dozen shutouts. Hes signed with the Jets and might be expected to start in the American Hockey League, but if he keep stopping pucks, there should be room for him. An aggressive winger picked in the third roudn last summer, J.C. Lipon had a solid pro debut and wasnt shy about it, leading the Ice Caps in penalty minutes with 136. Not the biggest blueliner on the block, Brenden Kichton was initially a fifth-round pick of the Islanders, was not signed, and then was drafted in the seventh-round by Winnipeg in 2013. A heady player who can quarterback a power play, Kichton ranked sixth among AHL defencemen in points as a rookie pro. A third-round pick in 2010, Julian Melchiori is a big, stay-at-home defenceman who has missed time with injuries in each of his first two pro seasons. Eric ODell turns 24 this summer, which puts him on the older side as a prospect but, in addition to scoring 97 points in 101 AHL games over the past two seasons, he also played 30 games for the Jets last season (3 G, 4 A, 51.0 CF%) so hes able to contribute now.

ORCHARD PARK, N. Cheap Seahawks Jerseys .Y. -- Mario Williams accepted his second AFC defensive player of the week honour much like he did his first one of the season. He shrugged. "Just another day to me," the Buffalo defensive end said Wednesday. Williams production has been anything but routine this season for someone finally beginning to play to the "Super Mario" expectations that came with the six-year $100 million contract he signed in March 2012. With 10 sacks through seven games, hes tied for second in the NFL and one short of surpassing his season total of last year. Calling it "progress," Williams acknowledged this is the best hes felt both mentally and physically since breaking into the NFL in 2006, when he was drafted first overall by Houston. "I think maybe its time," Williams said. "I dont know, maybe this is as good a time for me in general as far as my career." Putting aside the frustrations and criticism that came with his inconsistent production last year, Williams finds himself benefiting from his new multi-purpose role in first-year co-ordinator Mike Pettines attacking style of defence. Its one that has allowed Williams to become a difference-maker in helping Buffalo (3-4) get off to a better-than-expected start in preparing to play at New Orleans (5-1) on Sunday. Williams has played a key role in two victories. He had career-best 4 1/2 sacks in a 24-23 win over Carolina on Sept. 15. Last weekend, Williams had two sacks, his second forcing a fumble that set up Dan Carpenters game-winning 31-yard field goal with 33 seconds left in a 23-21 win at Miami. Former safety Rodney Harrison, who is now a broadcaster, has altered his tune on Williams. "When hes healthy, he is a different player," said Harrison, who criticized Williams for blaming a wrist injury for hindering his performance last year. On Monday, Dolphins offensive co-ordinator Mike Sherman was so impressed by Williams dominant day that he was began referring to him as a future Hall of Famer. That might be premature, but Williams has already nudged his way ahead of Bills Hall of Famer Bruce Smith -- the NFLs all-time sacks leader -- in a few categories. Williams 4 1/2 sacks against Carolina broke Smiths team record. And his 10 sacks through seven games are one more than Smiths best start in 1997. "Bruce, to be mentioned in the same sentence is obviously a great feeling," Williams said. "But for myself, my biggest thing is not really counting the sacks I got, its focusing on the ones I didnt get." By Williams count, he should be at 15 or 16 by now. The ones he has gotten have helped transform the identity of what had previously been a stale and porous defence in Buffalo. The Bills 23 sacks match the teams second-highest total through seven games. The pass-rush also is paying off in other ways by generating turnovers. The Bills have a league-leading 12 interceptions, and are tied for third with 15 takeaways. This is a defence that hasnt averaged more than two sacks a game since totalling 40 in 2006. And this was a defence that was so bad under former co-ordinator Dave Wannstedt last year that it allowed a combined 97 points and 1,101 yards in consecutive losses to New England and San Francisco. Williams credits the off-season arrival of Pettine, who was lured to Buffalo after spending the previous four seasons in the same job with the New York Jets. Pettines defence relies on players lining up at various positions -- including Williams -- to keep opposing offences guessing on who might be blitzing. Thats a big switch from last year, when Williams traditionally lined up opposite the left tackle. "It all started with the mentality, just (Pettine) coming in and pretty much wiping the slate clean," Williams said. Coach Doug Marrone said its a combination of the defence and Williams. "I think its a little bit more difficult when you have a player that moves around," Marrone said. "But hes an outstanding player. I mean, I think you could put him anywhere and hell be productive." Defensive tackle Alan Branch has been impressed no matter who deserves the credit. "I dont know if its the scheme," Branch said. "I just feel bad for the offensive linemen going against him just because hes a monster when he goes out there."

Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Authentic . Although taking two of three from the Baltimore Orioles wasnt nearly as uplifting as winning the World Series, it still felt pretty darn good.

What else could go wrong?Well, the answers this season have been anything and everything, and that was the case again. Not only did Michael Vicks pass end up incomplete, the quarterback was slammed to the ground by Chiefs linebacker Josh Mauga and walked woozily off the field.Vick eventually returned to finish the 24-10 loss Sunday, the Jets eighth straight defeat, but only after he went through the NFLs concussion protocol and was cleared to continue.We had some opportunities and we didnt capitalize on them, said Vick, who started in place of the injured Geno Smith. Whenever that happens, and the other team do capitalize on theirs you dont finding yourself winning the game.Smith was inactive with a shoulder injury, leaving Matt Simms to also play one series.New York actually moved the ball well most of the afternoon, utilizing Percy Harvin in the running and passing games to perfection. But the Jets kept misfiring in Chiefs territory, settling for a field goal just before halftime and then turning it over on downs three times.The result was another defeat tacked onto their longest losing streak since 1996, when the Jets went 1-15 in their final year under Rich Kotite. The franchise has never lost nine in a row, an embarrassment theyll try to avoid when they play Pittsburgh next Sunday.I think no different than the rest of our team, the rest of our organization, Ryan said. We all feel the same way. Were stung by it. Shoot, wed do anything for a win.Ryan said after the game that he would stick with Vick at quarterback next week.I thought he played well, Ryan said, and well give him a shot against Pittsburgh.Meanwhile, Alex Smith threw for 199 yards and two touchdowns for Kansas city, and Jamaal Charles ran for another score. Tight ends Anthony Fasano and Travis Kelce had the TD catches.I feel OK about where were at, Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. We just won. Normally I feel good. But I like the aggresssiveness that the team is playing with. Seahawks Jerseys Authentic China. That was evident from the opening drive, when the Chiefs moved 81 yards in relative ease. Charles was the workhorse, carrying six times and capping the drive with a 1-yard TD plunge.After the Chiefs forced three-and-out, it took them just seven more plays to score again — this time on a play that encapsulated the way everything has been going right for Kansas City, and the way everything has been going wrong for New York.With first-and-goal at the 2-yard line, Smiths pass was knocked down by Calvin Pace, but the ball went right to Fasano. The tight end caught the inadvertent pass on his rump, rolled over the goal line and gave the Chiefs a stunning — if not humorous — touchdown for a 14-0 lead.Meanwhile, the Chiefs defence was getting after Vick every time he dropped to pass.Justin Houston, who had 4 1/2 sacks of Vick when he faced the Eagles a year ago, had two more on the elusive quarterback Sunday. Defensive tackle Dontari Poe also tracked Vick down for a sack, all before Mauga knocked him from the game with his crushing blow in the fourth quarter.Its a group effort, Houston said. I cant do it without everybody else.The only bright spot for the Jets was the play of Harvin, who caught 11 passes for 129 yards in his second game since getting traded from Seattle. Harvin showed the speed and shiftiness that the Jets were hoping he would provide when they made the deal.It was just far too little in a game dominated by Kansas Citys defence.Right now, I think the offence is moving the ball pretty well. Were just not making the big plays at the right time, Harvin said. Defence, we stopped them pretty well. But when we needed that clutch play, we couldnt get it.Notes: The Jets had 24 sacks coming into the game. Jason Babin had their only one Sunday with 2 minutes left in the game. ...

New York, NY (SportsNetwork. Marquette King Jersey .com) - A pair of storied programs will meet up at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night as part of the Jimmy V Classic, as the Indiana Hoosiers take on the fourth-ranked Louisville Cardinals. After suffering a head-scratching loss at home to Eastern Washington on Nov. 24, Indiana has righted the ship with three straight wins to pull to 7-1. The Hoosiers had one of their most dominating performances of the season on Saturday, as they closed out a season-opening eight-game homestand with a 95-49 triumph over Savannah State. Louisville also finished a lengthy homestand in style in its most recent game, as it dismissed FIU on Friday, 82-57, to remain unbeaten in seven tries this season. This marks the Cardinals second neutral-court contest on a national stage, having previously downed Minnesota in the Armed Forces Classic in Puerto Rico in the season opener, 81-68. Indiana leads the all-time series with Louisville by a 10-6 count, and this is the first matchup between the programs since 2003. The Hoosiers barely broke a sweat in their most recent game, as they opened up a commanding 43-17 lead at intermission and cruised to the 46-point victory from there. They outshot Savannah State from the field, 57.4 percent to 32.1 percent, had an outstanding night from 3-point range (10-of-21) and won the rebounding battle, 42-24. Yogi Ferrell and James Blackmon, Jr. paced the winning effort with 18 points apiece, with Ferrell adding seven assists as well. Troy Williams and Robert Johnson netted 12 and 10 points, respectively. Indiana has played at a high level on the offensive end of the court this season, as it shoots 52.4 percent from the field (including 43.9 percent from beyond the arc) on its way to 88.4 ppg, which is more than enough to support a modest scoring defense (69.2 ppg). Blackmon scores 19.5 ppg and has been lights out from long range (26-of-48). Ferrell is an elite playmaker on the perimeter with 17.3 ppg and 5.8 apg, while Williams (12.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg) and Johnson (11.1 ppg) have also been stellar. The Cardinals faced an early deficit in their contest with FIU but quickly turned things around with an 18-0 burst and never looked back from there en route to the 25-point win. They were lights out from the field in shooting 57.1 percent, and they paired that with an excellent defensive effort in forcing FIU into more turnovers (25) than field goals (20). Pacing five players in double figures was Anton Gill, who provided a spark off the bench with 15 points. Montrezl Harrell tallied a double-double with 13 points and 12 rebounds, Wayne Blackshear and Terry Rozier scored 12 points apiece and Chris Jones chipped in with 11 points. Its no surprise that Louisville is one of the nations top-ranked teams considering it has built up an astounding +26.7 scoring margin. The nations third-ranked scoring defense (49.3 ppg) has stifled opponents to the tune of nearly 20 turnovers per game. Harrell (16.1 ppg, 9.4 rpg) is one of the best big men in the country and is making field goals at a 61.5 percent clip. Rozier (13.0 ppg, 5.7 rpg) and Blackshear (12.9 ppg, 5.9 rpg) are also active in the paint, while Jones rounds out the double- digit scorers with 11.7 ppg.

Bettors knew who they wanted, though, putting early money on Denver and making the Broncos a slight favourite to beat the Seattle Seahawks in most of this citys legal betting parlours. Denver was favoured by 1 point at several books in the early betting, while others had the Broncos as high as a 3-point pick. The move to the Broncos came after some books had initially made the Seahawks as much as a 2-point pick in the game. "Were just trying to figure out what the market will be and get a feel of where money will go," said Jay Kornegay, who runs the LVH sports book and initially had the Seahawks favoured. "At this point it doesnt take a lot to move the line." At the South Point sports book, Jimmy Vaccaro was on the phone talking about where he thought the line was going to go when a bettor came to the window and put $25,000 on the Broncos. That moved the game from pick em to the Broncos being favoured by 1 point, as the odds were adjusted to take in the bet. "Take your best shot," Vaccaro said. "Its an intriguing matchup with no clear cut favourite." Time was just running out in Seattles win over the San Francisco 49ers when the first odds for the Super Bowl were posted at most books. Bettors quickly reacted by putting most of the early money on the Broncos in an initial burst oof enthusiasm for a game so even that some think it will break the record of $98.

"If we dont do $100 million on this game Id be really puzzled." Kornegay said he made the Seahawks a 2-point favourite in his opening line because the Seahawks have a slightly higher power rating than the Broncos and a defence that might be the key in a game played outdoors in what could be cold temperatures. "With the game being in New York and the early forecast for below normal temperatures that favours a defensive team," he said. "It also favours a running team and thats certainly an advantage to the Seahawks." Bettors, though, liked Peyton Manning and his chances of winning another Super Bowl, and they didnt wait long to bet the Broncos. Sports books adjust the line to try to balance money on each team, and the LVH went from posting Seattle as a 2-point favourite to Denver being favoured by 1 point in less than an hour. Most big bettors -- the so-called "sharps" who can move a line all by themselves -- wait until much closer to the game before placing their bets. "Its all small stuff now," Vaccaro said. "The smart guys are not going to grab either side right now until they see how this shakes out." 23:41ET 19-01-14 Cheap Canadiens Jerseys Cheap Predators Jerseys Cheap Devils Jerseys Cheap Islanders Jerseys Cheap Rangers Jerseys Cheap Senators Jerseys Cheap Flyers Jerseys Cheap Penguins Jerseys Cheap Sharks Jerseys Cheap Blues Jerseys Cheap Lightning Jerseys Cheap Maple Leafs Jerseys Cheap Canucks Jerseys Cheap Golden Knights Jerseys Cheap Capitals Jerseys Cheap Winnipeg Jets Jerseys ' ' '
