PETERSBURG, Fla. DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings appear to be gaining some momentum.Gustav Nyquist had a goal and an assist to help Detroit beat the Nashville Predators 5-3 on Friday night. It was the Red Wings third consecutive win after losing their first two games.I think this was our best game of the season, said Tomas Tatar, who broke a 2-2 tie early in the third period. This happened to us before. When they scored wed hold back. Now I think they scored the goal to make it 2-1 and we kept pushing. We tied it and then early on (in third) we scored another one.Justin Abdelkader, Drew Miller, Tomas Tatar and Darren Helm also scored for the Red Wings, and Petr Mrazek stopped 30 shots.Im just worried about one game at a time and Im worried about getting better every day, and I thought we took a step in getting better today, Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. I thought we did a real good job of spending time in their end, we did a real good job of winning puck battles.P.K. Subban, Mike Ribeiro and Mike Fisher scored for Nashville, which has lost three straight. Pekka Rinne finished with 38 saves.I thought we played hard, especially with a short bench, Predators coach Peter Laviolette said. We just shot ourselves in the foot too many times. You cant make that many mistakes when you are trying to come from behind.Several Nashville players were ill, including Ryan Johansen and Craig Smith, who had to leave the game because of it.Fishers power-play goal with 4:46 pulled the Predators to 4-3 as he tipped in Roman Josis shot from the point. It was Fishers third goal, all on the power play.I always thought we were going to come back, even without those guys, but we just made too many mistakes at the end of the game, Fisher said. The puck was bouncing all over the place, and both teams took advantage of it. They were forechecking all over the ice, and they are so fast that they pressured us into a lot of turnovers. We got chances too, but theyy moved the puck very well against us. Brandon Ingram College Jersey. Helm had an empty-net power-play score with 22 seconds left for his fourth goal of the season to seal the win.Tatar gave the Red Wings a 3-2 lead 1:10 into the third period with a wrist shot from high in the right circle for his first of the season.Nyquist made it 4-2, with 8:33 left, with his first goal. He scored on a breakaway after a turnover by Nashvilles Filip Forsberg in the Predators zone.Abdelkaders power-play goal gave Detroit a 1-0 lead, 5:17 into the second. The rebound of Ryan Sprouls shot from the point trickled in off of Abdelkaders backside.Laviolette unsuccessfully challenged the goal, because it appeared Abdelkader may have interfered with Rinne.The Predators then scored two power-play goals 18 seconds apart to take the lead.With Tatar (interference) and Danny DeKeyser (delay of game) in the penalty box, Subban got his second goal of the season, which came on a one-time slap shot from the high slot with 5:47 left in the middle period.That brought Tatar back but Ribeiro put in a rebound with 5:29 remaining in the period to give the Predators a 2-1 lead. It was Ribeiros first goal.Millers tied it 2-2 with 40 seconds left in the second period as he beat Rinne with a one-timer from a bad angle deep in the left circle. It was Millers second goal and second in two games.NOTE: Detroit F Dylan Larkin moved from center, where he played the first four games of the season, to right wing, on a line centered by Frans Nielsen and Abdelkader on left wing. Larkin is a natural center but played the wing in his rookie season last year. ... The Predators were without D Anthony Bitetto (upper body) and RW Miikka Salomaki (upper body.UP NEXTPredators: Host defending champion Pittsburgh on Saturday night.Red Wings: Host San Jose on Saturday night.

Kumar Sangakkara says theres plenty more to come from Englands Jason Roy - including a possible Test career. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Pj-Hall-Draft-Jersey/ . Sri Lankan legend Sangakkara told Sky Sports that Roy, who smashed England into the ICC World Twenty20 with a career-best 78 in a seven-wicket, semi-final win over New Zealand, has matured as a player as hes learnt to control his emotions.Im thoroughly pleased for him - he deserves all that hes got because hes worked very hard, said Sangakkara, who has played alongside Roy at Surrey. Hes been knocking on that door for a very long time and now has got an extensive run. Nasser Hussain called Englands World T20 semi-final win over New Zealand the complete performance Hes grown a lot as a person. When I first went into the dressing room he was all emotional, would smash a few helmets and cupboards with his bat once he got out.Being in control of his emotions is going to be really key for him - staying emotionally stable through good times and bad, success and failure, so that he takes that controlled self out into the middle.At the same time strike rotation is going to be very important for Jason. He has power - sometimes too much power; hes got shots all around the wicket. He just needs to ensure that when he is under pressure, he spends a bit of time at the non-strikers end.I think theres a lot more of Jason that well see. Who knows, he might even break into that Test side as well.Watch England in Sundays World Twenty20 Final live on Sky Sports 2 this Sunday from 1.30pm.

From filmmaker Nanette Burstein (On the Ropes), The Price of Gold revisits the saga that rocked the figure skating world ahead of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympic Winter Games: the assault on Nancy Kerrigan, and the plot that led its way back to her rival Tonya Harding. Cameron McEvoy suffered stage fright in his Olympic freestyle flop, Australian swimmings head coach says.It looked like he was frozen ... how do you call it, stage fright, coach Jacco Verhaeren said on Thursday.It had nothing to do with any physical, technical, tactical choices whatsoever.He just wasnt there at the right time. And that is mental. And what part of mental we have to find out.McEvoy entered Wednesday nights 100m freestyle final in Rio as gold medal favourite but flagged to seventh in a race won by his Olympic village roommate Kyle Chalmers.McEvoy refused to make any excuses for his unexpected failure.I dont want to stand here being the guy rolling off excuses, it was this or it was that, McEvoy said on Thursday after swimming in a 50m freestyle heat.Not only because that is not the type of person I am, but I also dont want to take anything away from what Kyle has achieved.Verhaeren said McEvoy had a perfect preparation for the race, dismissing rumours the swimmer was sick.No. He hasnt been ill, the coach said.McEvoys coach Richard Scarce said he had never seen the swimmer in better physical condition. http://www.officialraidersgear.com/Raiders-Jordy-Nelson-Draft-Jersey/. In the moment, it just didnt come together, Scarce said on Thursday.You dont want that to happen now at the Olympics ... but it just wasnt right for him on the day.And he has got to get past that. And he will, hes a great young athlete.He could do it again shortly and there might be a different outcome maybe. But that is the moment, that is sport, and that is the Olympics - you have got to do it in that moment.McEvoys bankrupt parents Rod and Janine are being sued for almost $200,000 which they allegedly owe to family friends for a 2008 loan to Rod to expand his failed watch business.I dont think it helps things, Scarce said of the legal action.Its not an excuse because you have got to have a way and an art of dealing with that and getting on with the job.I certainly dont think its great for anyone ... but he would never say that either.And in the moment here, you have just got to get on with the job.

BOSTON -- The hot, humid weather in Boston is raising concerns about the ice conditions at TD Garden before Game 6 of the Stanley Cup final. http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Kevin-Hogan-Jersey/ . With temperatures forecasted to reach 33 degrees, Bruins and Chicago Blackhawks players expressed some concern about what it would be like when the puck is dropped Monday night. "Its pretty hot outside, and Im kind of sweating right now," Blackhawks forward Michael Frolik said. "The ice wasnt great, but I guess its same for both teams. Hopefully it get a little bit better tonight." June 24 ties for the latest Cup final game in NHL history, and a potential Game 7 would set a new record. "Everybody has been through it, and two teams are going through the same conditions," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. "Both teams are going to tell you the same truth: keep the game simple and try and avoid those mistakes from over-handling pucks in those kind of ice conditions." Boston players had slightly better reviews of the ice after their morning skate, which happened before Chicagos. Centre Chris Kelly said if its as good at night -- when the temperature is expected to be 28 degrees -- as it was in the morning, it would not negatively affect play. "It was OK this morning," defenceman Torrey Krug said. "I thought it was obviously better early on and the more it gets chewed up it kind of deteriorates. For us were not worried about it. Both teams have to play on the ice. Its something you cant focus on. Youve just got to make sure you take care of the puck." Bruins centre David Krejci called the ice "kind of bumpy." It could get worse as the day goes on. "Its obviously going to be choppy, but its going to be choppy for both teams," Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw said. "I think weve just got to (be smart with) pucks, try not to make those pretty plays in the middle of the ice." The NHL is in charge of maintaining ice conditions during the Cup final, a Bruins spokesman said. A league spokeswoman said ice specialist Dan Craig was not doing interviews during the series. Julien expects the heat in to rise as fans enter TD Garden on Monday night. Those who have attended morning skates at the arena all season observed that the building wasnt as cold as it usually is. Given how much the Blackhawks have excelled with their speed, a choppier surface might be advantageous to the Bruins. But Frolik and his teammates arent exactly going into foreign territory. "I think were kind of used to bad ice. Chicago is not great ice, too," he said. "Hopefully we get used to it very quick." http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Joe-Thomas-Jersey/ . LOUIS -- St. http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Ibraheim-Campbell-Jersey/ .Y. -- Paul Byron and Matt Stajan scored as the Calgary Flames started a five-game road trip with a 2-1 overtime win over the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday afternoon. http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Joe-Schobert-Jersey/ . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Cricket Australias controversial move to include a CA XI in the domestic one-day cup will continue in 2016-17.The inexperienced team of largely uncapped state players won just one match against Tasmania last season, and were bowled out for less than 100 in their first two matches against Victoria and NSW.However they proved much more competitive in the second half of the competition and off the back of the quick elevation of a number of players to higher honours, the trial has been deemed a success and will continue into a second year.We said initially that we were prepared to back this for a two-year trial and we are sticking to that for the second season as we felt that there were significantly positive results for Australian Cricket, CAs high performance manager Pat Howardd said. http://www.brownsrookiestore.com/Browns-Ricardo-Louis-Jersey/. ith the postponement of the Test tour last October, the CA XI came up against very strong state sides, which was wonderful for the competition but was also a tough introduction for the young group.It is important we continue to review the concept again this season, as there were many positives.Ten members of the CA XI went on to play in last summers Big Bash League or Sheffield Shield competition, while Sam Heazlett and Mitch Swepson each earned Australia A call ups this year.CA XI squads were also introduced into junior national tournaments last year, ranging from under-15s to under-19s in both the male and female competitions.

The family of paralysed jockey Freddy Tylicki has celebrated a special win with his sister Madeleine Tylicki saddling her first winner as a trainer. Los Angeles Rams Jerseys .Freddy Tylicki has been left paralysed in the lower half of his body following a race fall three weeks ago.His sister, who has been training since June, says the win of First To Boogie in a hurdle at Punchestown has given the family something to smile about.Its my first winner and a very special one, obviously.

Luck was on our side and it was great for Freddy. It will put a smile on his face. He rang me straight away and he was absolutely delighted.The support and messages weve had since it happened, were so grateful, its very uplifting for Freddy.Its a tough time but hes a very determined young man and hes shown that in his career.Im confident hell fight through this,. Its very tough. Were heading back and forth to the hospital, but were managing. Ramik Wilson Jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. Brian Allen Rams Jersey . -- Eastern Kentucky thrives off creating havoc for others. http://www.footballramsshop.us/authentic-aqib-talib-rams-jersey/ . Tomas Berdych and Radek Stepanek defeated Nenad Zimonjic and Ilija Bozoljac 6-2, 6-4, 7-6 (4) on the indoor hard-court at Belgrade Arena. The victory improved the Czech pairs impressive cup doubles record to 14-1. Now that the free-agency whirlwind has calmed, we can sit back and ask: So, um, what exactly did the Atlanta Hawks do?They tried to straddle two paths at once, and ultimately fell into the netherworld between them.The NBA is ripe for a tank job. Two to three years ago, almost a half-dozen teams raced to the bottom at once -- a backward sprint so crowded, one or two would become a sort of reverse Mary Decker Slaney and stumble into too many wins. Now, everyone is trying to win. The path from the playoffs to the No. 2 pick has never been clearer.But tanking sounds better to those outside the game than the people who live within it. The Hawks rank in the bottom 10 in attendance, and they arent breaking the bank with their local TV deal. Their blah attendance is a nonstop talking point. Even former Hawks star Al Horfords father, Tito, told The Boston Globe that the contrast between crowds in Boston and Atlanta factored into his sons free-agency decision.The Hawks have to worry about butts in seats. Coach Mike Budenholzer is their top basketball decision-maker, and he has spent the past two decades winning a ridiculous number of games in San Antonio and Atlanta. Coaches with that sort of track record dont easily swallow full-on rebuilds.But a second consecutive playoff sweep against the Cavaliers demoralized the Hawks. It laid bare that their current core would not be able to compete against LeBron James & Co., and raised internal questions about whether their pass-happy style of play had reached its zenith. Atlanta players have talked openly about catching the league by surprise two seasons ago, when they won 60 games, and how their relative struggles in the playoffs were the first sign of the league catching up.The Hawks were juggling a lot of balls in those frantic moments before Horford bolted to Boston. They had already agreed to a three-year, $70 million deal with Dwight Howard, a decidedly un-Hawks-like player who mans the same position as Horford. They were working to re-sign Horford anyway, and arranging a trade that would jettison Paul Millsap -- their best player last season.The Horford-Howard front line would keep Atlanta competitive, and dealing Millsap would net rebuilding assets -- young players and picks to plop atop the No. 12 pick they received from Utah in the Jeff Teague deal. They could rebuild without dropping from the postseason.It was an interesting plan until it fell apart. Horford is gone, Millsap remains and the trade assets hed have fetched stay in Denver, Phoenix or someplace else.Millsap is entering the final season of his contract. He is 31, and with 10 years experience he will be eligible next summer for the highest possible percentage of the salary cap at the exact moment the cap leaps again -- from $94 million to about $110 million. If he gets the max, Millsaps next deal will start with a salary around $35 million. Oof. (Note: The Hawks would normally be able to offer Millsap a five-year deal, but due to a quirk in the collective bargaining agreement called the over-36 rule, which is designed to limit contract length for older players, they would be capped at a four-year offer, per several league sources. The rule would also apply to LeBron James if he hits free agency again in July 2017. The union may fight to scrap it in collective bargaining talks.)Horford has played for nine years, making him eligible for a max contract one tier below Millsap. Horford will sign with Boston under the current $94 million cap, and his starting salary will be about $26.5 million.That ballpark $9 million-per-year difference between the starting salaries of Horford and Millsap on their next respective contracts largely explains why the Hawks had chosen Horford by the end -- and why Boston had no misgivings throwing a four-year max at him. Trading Millsap would net the Hawks some building blocks and free them from the dilemma of paying his super-max deal.They talked about Millsap trades with Phoenix, Denver, Toronto and Houston; the Nuggets were ready to flip a players-and-picks package headlined by Kenneth Faried, according to several sources familiar with the matter.One problem: To execute that scheme, you actually need to re-sign Horford. The Hawks didnt. There is some debate over precisely how much Atlanta offered, and what Horford demanded, but the difference in the end came down to about $5 million total. That is essentially nothing in the new cap landscape.Blowing up a carefully crafted plan over that amount is either blind stubbornness or an indication that the Hawks are fine with their fallback of pairing Millsap and Howard. The Hawks expect Howard to thrive in a more functional locker room, and figure Dennis Schroder is ready to succeed Teague. They will be good again next season.But Millsap now knows the Hawks tried to move him, and his trade value declines every day.Trading a player like Millsap is painful. He emerged last season as one of the 15 or 20 best players in the league, at worst. But teams are looking ahead at the $110 million mega-cap and are thinking hard about whether age 30-ish players who will demand close to the max are worth it.This is in part the inevitable by-product of the shorter contracts the NBA and union negotiated in the 2011 collective bargaining deal. Those marathon David Lee deals used to carryy players through their entire primes and spit them back out into free agency around age 32. Sam Shields Rams Jersey. Any team signing a player at that age knows they are paying for decline.Under the new CBA, more players are hitting free agency in their late 20s and very early 30s, and sometimes twice in that span. Good for them. They should max out their earnings and exercise as much control over their careers as they can. For teams, the uncertainty is nerve-wracking.Weve already seen the Thunder and Bulls trade two free agents-to-be, Serge Ibaka and Derrick Rose, a year ahead of the $110 million cap. The Knicks expect Rose to bounce back in a contract season, but that expectation is precisely why Chicago traded him. Knowing what they know about Roses knees, the Bulls did not want to trap themselves into paying Rose $100 million-plus after one good rebound season.We might see more teams with impending free agents in this age range consider moving them. Unfortunately for tradeniks, the two most interesting potential candidates are point guards on very good teams who wont deal them: Kyle Lowry and Chris Paul. Both have player options for 2017-18 that they will almost certainly decline to dip into free agency. Paul will be 32 at that point, with knee injuries and a ton of minutes in the rearview. Lowry will be 31. Point guards do not typically age well, though perhaps Lowry playing as backup for the first half of his career bodes well for his longevity.If they play to their normal levels this season, both will seek the max amid another summer of frenzied spending. Paying a 30-plus point guard $35 million per year during a long-term deal is fraught with downside risk. The Grizzlies at least got Mike Conley while hes 28 (hell turn 29 in October) on the Horford-level max under the $94 million cap.The list of guys in this sweet spot is pretty short. Jrue Holiday and Tyreke Evans, both free agents a year from now, are just 26. Teams have concerns about giving them huge money, but age isnt one of them. Danilo Gallinari is interesting. Hell be 29 next summer, with a history of knee issues. The Nuggets extended him once. Do they want to do it again, for even more money?These new money deals look bloated compared to contracts signed under the pre-2015 cap, but those cheapo older contracts in a way subsidize some risk on fat new ones. If you have Markieff Morris and John Wall under contracts that now look absurdly low, you can gamble on overpaying a couple of free agents this summer and next.The league is entering a strange phase where teams will carry two types of contracts: old cap and new cap. Once the old-cap contracts cycle out, all veteran contracts will be more or less equivalent. A contract that looks ugly and risky now will be normal in two years.In the meantime, opportunistic teams will chase guys locked into old-cap contracts. Detroit did that in trading for Tobias Harris. The Timberwolves were aggressive in chasing Khris Middleton at last seasons deadline. Teams should call the Magic about Nikola Vucevic, still with three years left on his old-cap deal, now that Orlando has signed approximately 19 big men. Vucevic is a borderline All-Star making Solomon Hill money.Faried makes a hair less than Vucevic. You can bring Faried off the bench now and not feel as if you are wasting an investment. (Its not 100 percent clear the Hawks would have kept Faried if the Denver trade had gone through).Like Howard, Faried seems almost the opposite of a classic Budenholzer-era pace-and-space Hawk. He cant shoot, and he hasnt cracked 100 assists in any season. But he and Howard are good rebounders, and the Hawks are sick of watching Tristan Thompson shove them away like tackling dummies.The coaching staff longed for a big man who would slice to the rim on pick-and-rolls instead of popping for jumpers. Millsap and Horford would occasionally roll hard, but it was a change-of-pace thing for them. Tiago Splitter, a capable roller, barely played. Unless Teague or Schroder penetrated into the paint, the Hawks were left to fling the ball around the outside.Chasing Howard and Faried marks a bit of an identity crisis for a team that was set in its ways. The Hawks will play differently, on both ends, with Howard. Every team strives for roster continuity, but there is a blurry line between continuity and staleness. The Hawks decided they had crossed it.They had an elegant plan to shake up the present while boosting the future at the same time. To execute it, they needed Horford back. They came up short on the money, and acquired Howard -- about whom Horford had major reservations, per sources close to the situation.They could have signed another big man, kept Horford and dealt Millsap. They could have dealt Millsap, let Horford walk and bottomed out. They could have kept both, re-signed Bazemore, sloughed off bit players and signed another wing.Juggling all of this in real time is hard. Things change fast, in unpredictable ways. But for now, it looks as if the Hawks swapped centers and missed a chance to snag some valuable future assets. If they end up a slightly worse mid-rung playoff team with an outgoing free agent they cant trade, they might regret it.

NEW YORK JETS (10-6)OPEN CAMP: July 27, Florham Park, New Jersey. Cheap Montreal Canadiens Jerseys .LAST YEAR: Came within win of making playoffs in coach Todd Bowles first season, but fell to former coach Rex Ryan and Buffalo Bills in season finale. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick took over as starter for Geno Smith, who had jaw broken in training camp by then-teammate Ikemefuna Enemkpali, and set franchise record with career-best 31 TD passes. WR Brandon Marshall had team-record 109 catches for 1,502 yards and 14 TDs, while Eric Decker had 80 receptions for 1,027 yards and 12 TDs to form one of NFLs top receiving duos. DE Muhammad Wilkerson set career high with 12 sacks while anchoring stout D-line.IMPORTANT ADDITIONS: RBs Matt Forte and Khiry Robinson, LT Ryan Clady, DL Jarvis Jenkins, NT Steve McLendon, LB Bruce Carter, WR Jeremy Ross, rookies LB Darron Lee, QB Christian Hackenberg, LB Jordan Jenkins, and special teams coordinator Brant Boyer.IMPORTANT LOSSES: LT DBrickashaw Ferguson, NT Damon Harrison, RB Chris Ivory, CBs Antonio Cromartie and Darrin Wells, LB Demario Davis, WR-PR Jeremy Kerley, P Ryan Quigley, TE Jeff Cumberland.CAMP NEEDS: Biggest question is whether Fitzpatrick, locked in contract stalemate with Jets, will re-sign before camp opens. After solid offseason, Smith will get another chance at starting if Fitzpatrick doesnt return. Can Forte, coming off career-low 898 yards with Bears, replace Ivory as three-down lead back? Clady coming off torn ACL that sidelined him for 2015 with Broncos, but expected to be ready to replace retired Ferguson. Buster Skrine and Marcus Williams will compete for spot opposite CB Darrelle Revis, who should be back from offseason wrist surgery. Wilkerson, signed to five-year contract extension two weeks before camp, still working back from broken right leg suffered in regular-season finale.EXPECTATIONS: Both Bowles and GM Mike Maccagnan insisted overall team speed was key need and addressed it in draft on defense, in particular, with selections of Lee and Jenkins. Uncertain status of Fitzpatrick makes it difficult to gauge potential of Jets, who have difficult start to regular season with games vs. Bengals, at Bills, at Chiefs, vs. Seahawks, at Pittsburgh and at Arizona -- which will set tone for whether New York takes next step or huge step back.---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Cheap Toronto Maple Leafs Jerseys .

Albus Nox Luna took down yet another League Championship Series champion, following up a win against 2016 spring North American champs Counter Logic Gaming with another win over Europes spring and summer victors G2 Esports at the League of Legends World Championships.The representatives of the Commonwealth of Independent States via the International Wildcard Qualifier, ANX now sits at 2-1 in its group, trailing only tournament favorites ROX Tigers, as the first week of round robin matches are over for Group A.Albus Nox Lunas latest upset was powered by a pair of self-proclaimed one-trick pony champions, as Mykhailo Kira Harmash selected Anivia while Kirill Likkrit Malofeev played his signature high-damage Brand support. Both would play a pivotal role in the victory, along with top laner Dmitrii Smurf Ivanov on Poppy.ANX had control of the map for most of the early game, translating that pressure into the first tower and a pair of dragons. But failure to keep up the pressure allowed G2 Esports back into the game, as a couple of overly aggressive moves led to deaths and a dragon secured for the European champions.However, that did not deter the Russian side, as it capitalized on G2 resetting following a mid-lane teamfight to secure an uncontested Baron Nashor kill, thanks in large part to the massive damage from an unlikelly source, the support Brand. http://www.nflcardinalsrookiestore.com/Cardinals-Josh-Bynes-Jersey/. The Baron power play led to a big advantage for ANX, and some smart combinations would help the team keep its lead and continue to take objectives. On multiple occasions, Kira and Smurf were able to combine the Anivia Crystalize wall and Poppys Heroic Charge ability to stun members of G2 against the temporary terrain and pick up kills.The first such combo led directly to an opportunity to take a second Baron buff, which was earned thanks to some smart zoning to keep G2 jungler Kim Trick Kang-yun away from the objective.G2 attempted to make a last-ditch effort to stop ANX at the Elder Dragon, but a Poppy ultimate from Smurf sent Trick away, removing all hope for a steal and giving Albus Nox Luna the buff it needed to eventually take down the enemy base and destroy the nexus.The loss for G2 Esports moves the team to 0-3 for the tournament, an objectively disappointing showing from the squad that finished the summer split without a loss in the standings. ANX, on the other hand, are poised to enter the second week of round robin games in second place in the group, needing only to hold serve and recreate a magical Week 1 to earn a spot in the quarterfinals.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Senior striker Sophie Groff converted a penalty kick in the 74th minute to lift No. 1 seed South Carolina womens soccer to a 1-0 win over 20th-ranked Colorado in the second round of the NCAA Tournament Thursday night at Stone Stadium. The victory gave the No. 3 ranked Gamecocks (20-1-1) their most wins in a season ever and advanced them to the NCAA Tournament third round for the third time in school history. Colorado ends its 2016 campaign at 15-6-1 following the loss.Groffs game-winner came after she was taken down in the box trying to collect a cross from senior forward Daija Griffin from the right side. Colorado goalkeeper Jalen Tompkins charged into Groff and knocked her down to set up the ensuing attempt from 12 yards out. Groff, who opened the NCAA Tournament with a multi-goal match last Friday, saw Tompkins dive right and calmly slipped the ball into the left side of the net. The goal marked her second successful penalty kick of the season.Carolina, which put six shots on frame Thursday, nearly opened the scoring on two separate occasions in the first half. In the 17th minute, senior midfielder Chelsea Drennans corner kick located senior center back Paige Bendell deep inside the box. Bendell drilled a header towards net that deflected off Groff before being cleared off the line by a Colorado defender. The Gamecocks almost broke through in the 35th minute when Griffin rifled a shot from the left side of the box that was knocked away by Tompkins. The deflection created a dangerous loose ball, and Tompkins was able to punch it away again before a charging Groff could tap it in.The Gamecocks bid for a goal fell just shot again in the 50th minute when junior forward Savannah McCaskill raced to the ball and sent a diving cross into the box. Her delivery found Drennan, who one-timed a shot that missed just left. Less than 10 minutes after Groffs goal, McCaskill nearly doubled the advantage after sending a header wide left following a Carolina corner kick.Colorados best chance of the night came in the 55th minute when Buffalo forward Emily Bruder evaded the defensee and found herself one-on-one with Gamecock goalkeeper Mikayla Krzeczowski. http://www.atleticomadridpro.com/Kids-Juanfran-Jersey/. Krzeczowski charged off her line and used her leg to turn the shot away before Carolina center back Kaleigh Kurtz cleared the danger.The Gamecocks finished the match with a 15-9 shot advantage and attempted five corner kicks. Colorado put five attempts on target and totaled four corner kicks throughout the contest. Krzeczowski tallied five saves to earn her 10th shutout of the year and improve to 17-1-1 in 2016.QUOTABLEIm so proud of this team and what theyve done all year. I keep saying, you dont really understand what youve done until you can reflect upon it. Were all so focused on the run and meeting our own expectations of doing well. This team has shown all year (that) they find a way to win and they can play against the best. - South Carolina womens soccer coach Shelley SmithGAMECHANGERSenior forward Sophie Groff clinched the victory for the Gamecocks with her penalty kick in the 74th minute. The tally was the 10th career game-winning goal for the Grapevine, Texas, native.KEY STATThe Gamecocks limited the Buffaloes to just two shots on goal in the second half. Only four Colorado players registered a shot on the night.NOTABLESouth Carolina has reached the Round of 16 in the NCAA Tournament in two of the last three years.

Though nobody was shocked to see the New England Patriots reach the big game for a billionth time last year (sorry Ziggy Hood Jersey , eighth under Tom Brady), none of us could have predicted at the start that Nick Foles would step in for Carson Wentz and lead the Philadelphia Eagles to their first Super Bowl.

Heck, who thought the Atlanta Falcons would reach Super Bowl LI? Or that the Carolina Panthers would get to Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara? See where we're going with this? There tends to be at least one surprise team in the Super Bowl, but will 2018 be different?

This season won't be a year where it's exclusively between the Patriots, Steelers, Packers and Seahawks again. You have the Eagles, Jaguars, Texas, Saints, Vikings and Rams all contending for the Super Bowl now. The game has changed. There is more parity than ever before.

There at least a dozen teams with a very realistic shot at winning the Super Bowl, and at least 20 teams have a very good chance at fighting for a playoff spot. Heck, the Cleveland Browns probably won't go winless for a second consecutive season.

With pre-season under way, it's now a good time to forecast next season and start thinking about how the postseason will play out. And yeah, the Patriots Marvin Harrison Jersey , Steelers and Eagles are shoe-ins to make it.

But which surprise teams could squeak in, and which clubs are bound to bounce back and re-enter the race? And most importantly, who's taking home Super Bowl聽LIII in Atlanta's fancy new stadium?

Here is how the 2018 NFL postseason will play out, according to my calculations.

After missing the playoffs for the first time in eight years, the New York Rangers are going all in on a makeover.

Several star players were jettisoned at the trade deadline for youngsters and draft picks, there’s tough decisions to be made with free agents, and they’re seeking a new coach to lead the way.

”We all know there’s going to be some changes during the summer,” veteran goalie Henrik Lundqvist said.

”Part of me is a little excited about what’s ahead. I hope we take some good steps in the right direction. … Whoever is going to be here, we are going to compete and be sure to have a better year.”

After a slow start to the season, the Rangers picked up their play but injuries to key players such as Chris Kreider, Kevin Shattenkirk, Kevin Hayes, Marc Staal and Mika Zibanejad hampered their ability to gain some consistency.

Then, the retooling became a certainty in early February when general manager Jeff Gorton announced the team’s moves at the trade deadline would be with an eye to the future and not to save the season.

Weeks later Lorenzo Alexander Jersey , Michael Grabner was dealt to New Jersey, Rick Nash to Boston, and J.T. Miller and captain Ryan McDonagh to Tampa Bay – with all going to teams that are in the playoffs.

The Rangers closed the season losing eight of their final 10 and finished last in the Metropolitan Division – 20 points behind the Devils and Columbus Blue Jackets, for the two wild-card spots in the Eastern Conference.

”It’s been a tough season for everyone – fans, players, the whole team organization,” said Mats Zuccarello, whose first year in the NHL was right after the Rangers last missed the playoffs in 2010.

”I’ve never been in this situation before. It’s been a tough season mentally, lost a lot of good friends, but at the end of the day right now it’s over.”

The lost season and resulting pivot to a youth movement cost coach Alain Vigneault his job when he was fired hours after a season-ending 5-0 loss at Philadelphia last Saturday night. The Rangers went 226-147-37 in five years under Vigneault, with a run to the Stanley Cup Final in his first season in 2013-14.

”We understand we didn’t get the job done,” Lundqvist said. ”When that happens, changes are going to happen. We had players leave, now coaches leave. We hoped and we expected more at the start of the season. Things happened along the way. … We were just not able to recover and changes were made and it was a tough stretch after that.”

Gorton said he expects to interview five to 10 candidates for the head coach vacancy Dustin Hopkins Jersey , and will consider anyone with coaching experience at any level.

”We’re looking for somebody with a progressive mind, that’s thinking the game, that’s watching the game and seeing what’s going to happen next,” he said. ”Just a good person, a good leader, somebody we can work with and develop young players.”

Some other things to know as the Rangers head into the offseason:

YOUTH MOVEMENT

The moves at the trade deadline gave the team a chance to look at some younger players.

Ryan Spooner, acquired from Boston in the deal for Nash, made the biggest impact with four goals and 12 assists in 20 games – nearly matching his production with the Bruins (nine goals, 16 assists).

Teenage first-round picks Lias Andersson (one goal, one assist in seven games) and Filip Chytil (one goal, two assists in nine) were also given chances to play down the stretch and could make the team out of training camp in the fall.

FREE-AGENT FRENZY?

The Rangers could choose to hasten their rebuild with some moves in free agency, but that option may be hampered due to tough decisions to make with some of their own players.

Spooner is among the team’s eight restricted free agents, along with Jimmy Vesey, Kevin Hayes Jerrell Freeman Jersey , Brady Skjei, Vladislav Namestnikov, Rob O’Gara, John Gilmour and Ryan Sproul. Also, Paul Carey, Cody McLeod, David Desharnais and backup goalie Ondrej Pavelec are unrestricted free agents and will not likely be re-signed.

WATCH THE DRAFT BOARD

The Rangers have stockpiled draft picks this year with seven selections in the first three rounds, including three first-rounders. This will make it two straight years with multiple picks in the first round after four straight years without any.

Unless they win the draft lottery, The Rangers aren’t going to get Rasmus Dahlin. However, other strong defensemen that could be available include Adam Boqvist, Evan Bouchard and Noah Dobson.

NEED TO HEAL UP

In addition to the injuries that cost players time during the season, Zuccarello and Lundqvist both said they have been dealing with knee injuries throughout the season.

Zuccarello said he just had some work done on his knee and will rest up for three to four weeks. Lundqvist plans to address his issue with doctors in the coming days so he can ”do all the right things to be 100 percent when I start training and preparation for next season.”
