Klingberg, Seguin score early, Stars hold off Red Wings 4-2

The first win for the Dallas Stars this season was No. 782 of Ken Hitchcock’s career. And that’s a significant figure for NHL coaches.

Now in his second stint with Dallas, Hitchcock tied Al Arbour for third place on the all-time wins list Tuesday night. John Klingberg and Tyler Seguin scored first-period goals, and the Stars never trailed in a 4-2 victory over the Detroit Red Wings.

Anthony Mantha’s goal with 4:49 remaining pulled Detroit (2-1) within one, but the Red Wings couldn’t tie the game even with goalie Petr Mrazek pulled for the final 2:56.

“I was thinking on the bench that we’ve played three great hockey games, and it would have felt poorly to not finish this off,” Hitchcock said. “I thought this was the best balance we’ve had. This looked like something you could really build on.”

Unfortunately, the bright lights from historic Thames Street in the background washed out much of the photo. The comments section turned into a roast of Horford’s phone with commenters wondering if he had snapped the pic on his Motorola Razr. Even second-year swingman Jaylen Brown couldn’t resist a jab, asking Horford if used his picture phone to take the snapshot.

We put that very question to Celtics assistant coach Cheap UK NFL Jerseys Jay Larranaga, who spends more time than anyone in the organization with Horford as his Cheap Vintage Jerseys NBA player coach. On game nights, the two can often be seen crunching film together before Larranaga leads Horford through his typical pregame shooting routine.

Indians’ Bauer set to start vs. Yankees on three days’ rest

The final chapter of the drama is about to be written.

Wednesday night at Progressive Field, the New York Yankees and Cleveland Indians will play a winner-take-all Game 5 in the best-of-five American League Division Series that is tied 2-2.

Roethlisberger’s mechanics, arm strength and confidence are not concerns for Tomlin, who also addressed Roethlisberger’s postgame comment that “maybe I don’t have it anymore.”

“I’ve known Ben for 11 years. I know the competitor he is. I know his level of confidence,” Tomlin said Tuesday. “What he says after a five-interception performance, moments after a five-interception performance, probably is not reflective of who he is and how he feels. It wasn’t reflective of who he is and how he felt when he walked in here yesterday. He looked like a guy who was ready to gun-sling and ready to get back at it. That’s more in line with the guy that I know and what I anticipate from him.”

Roethlisberger typically gets a rest day Wednesday, depending on how he feels that day and his discussions with coaches about his workload. Roethlisberger didn’t commit to a full practice Wednesday, but he does plan to set a tone in the locker room by putting last week behind him. That’s Cheap Baseball Jerseys Kids crucial against the undefeated Chiefs.

“We want to go in [to Arrowhead Stadium] and be tested by the Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys best, probably, in the NFL right now,” Roethlisberger said.

Paul Molitor happy to put uncertainty behind him

A bleary-eyed Paul Molitor walked into a season-ending meeting with executives Derek Falvey and Thad Levine less than 10 hours after the Minnesota Twins fell to the New York Yankees Cheap Custom Baseball Jerseys in the American League wild-card game.

Anthony’s relationship with the brand stretches back to his days in high school. He emerged as one of the nation’s top prep stars while playing for Jordan-sponsored Oak Hill Academy. Soon afterward, he wore the Air Jordan XVIII while carrying Syracuse to the 2003 national championship during his lone NCAA season.

Later that summer, the No. 3 overall pick became the first rookie signed to Jordan Brand with his own signature shoe in the works. Anthony wore a mix of both retro and modern Air Jordans during his rookie season in custom Denver Nuggets colors, such as the XII, XIII, XVIII.5, XIX and XX.

Behind the scenes, D’Wayne Edwards, Jordan Brand’s then-newly appointed Cheap Donegal Gaa Jerseys design director, was working hand in hand with Melo on his debut signature model for the next season.

“I met Melo when he was a rookie in his new top-floor apartment overlooking the entire city of Denver,” said Edwards. “Here was this 19-year-old young man with an entire city to save, and I was responsible for designing his signature shoe. He was going to be the first Jordan basketball guy to have his own signature shoe, on top of being the face of the brand. That’s a lot for a 19-year-old.”

There’s this one lady fan who keeps following me from city to city

“When we saw Verlander run to the `pen we said, `Our horse is on the mound, we need to win this game,” said Bregman, who homered off Sale to tie it in the eighth before Josh Reddick’s single gave the Astros the lead. “That’s kind of the whole energy that he’s brought since we brought him over here. He’s brought an energy with him that, `Hey, when he’s out there, we’re going to win.”

Verlander, who was acquired for the playoff run after spending his first 13 seasons in Detroit, gave up the go-ahead homer to Andrew Benintendi — the first batter he faced — before shutting Boston down for the next 2 2/3 innings.

The former AL MVP and Cy Young winner earned the victory in his first relief appearance after 424 starts in a major and minor league career.

As the Warriors embark on a journey that may very well end in their third championship in four seasons, they do so with the knowledge that outsized expectations and celebrity are a part of their daily routine more than ever. This trip to China only reinforced the type of new reality that so few teams ever get to experience. They have crossed over the realm of sports, morphing into the types of global icons who are feted wherever they go. It’s a distinction that Thompson and his teammates are trying to take in stride.

“There’s this one lady fan who keeps following me from city to city,” Thompson said. “And I really appreciate her love of my game. And she just really admires how hard I play. I forget her name, but she’s a very sweet lady. And then there was another fan that [had] a big, big poster of me and [my dog] Rocco. So that was cool. Any time you can make someone’s day by saying hello and signing Cheap Bike Jerseys a signature, it’s an incredible gift we don’t take for granted.

“And we thank all the fans who wait patiently for us to sign stuff, and they’re Cheap Authentic Jerseys very gracious, so it doesn’t go unnoticed.”

This strip sack on Cincinnati Bengals QB Andy Dalton was one of the brighter moments for Cleveland.

There’s not much shame in the way the Texans lost to Tom Brady and the Patriots, except in how the Texans let Brady even get the ball one more time. The Texans would love to see Deshaun Watson progress along the same schedule as Marcus Mariota, who was as good as can be against the Seahawks. He might be good enough to replicate what Brady did against the Texans defense.

Emmanuel Ogbah (Cleveland # 90) – The Browns defensive end bettered his performance from last week as he was all over the Cincinnati Bengals backfield this past Sunday. Six tackles, one sack, two QB pressures, 3.5 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery saw Ogbah end up as one of the highest graded Browns players on the day.

Unfortunately for Ogbah,his superb performance came in another Browns loss, this time to the division rival Bengals.

This rookie continues to make his mark for the Rams, piling up another touchdown on his five catches in Week 4. While he’s the third option for the Rams’ passing game, there is plenty to be enthused by with this offense. He’s a worthwhile add for a deeper league, where he can be used as the flex in PPR scoring.

Lamar Miller was excellent in Week 4, so the threat of Foreman taking over as the starter imminently remains slim. But Foreman added 13 carries for 45 yards in Week 4, and he continues to see a steady role. Again, for anyone with needs for backfield depth in a deeper league, Foreman remains a name of note.

The Cardinals are still working to find how to best substitute for David Johnson, with Ellington having emerged as a clear pass-catching favorite. He snagged nine Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping catches in Week 4, posting his second straight double-digit effort in PPR scoring. That’s NFL Jerseys Outlet the play here: If you are in a PPR league, he has value in your flex in larger leagues (14 teams or more).

NFL Africa Zone week 4: Kamara’s Perfect 10 edition

Ezekiel Ansah (Detroit Lions DE #94) – Ziggy had an excellent start to the season on Monday Night Football against the New York Giants in week 2, as he tallied up three sacks and a forced fumble while playing a limited number of snaps (28) on his return from injury. Ansah was ineffective the following week despite playing 33 snaps as the Lions lost a close game to the Atlanta Falcons. Coming off a three-tackle performance against the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday, Ziggy will look to provide the Lions with more consistent pressure on the Carolina Panthers in the next game.

The Panthers’ offensive line has been poor for the most part this season but got a massive confidence boost with their performance in a victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday. Ansah will provide the Panthers’ O-line with another stern test in week 5.

Brown has settled into a steadier role for the Cardinals of late, averaging 9.7 targets over his past three games and posting more than 10 fantasy points in PPR scoring in each of them. For a deep league flex play, Brown fits the bill.

McGuire is the third-string running back for the Jets, but this sixth-round pick has announced himself over the past couple of weeks. He had 10 carries for 93 yards and a touchdown in Week 4. The Jets will rely on Bilal Powell and Matt Forte (when the latter gets back from a Cheap Jerseys Supply turf toe injury), but this is a back-by-committee offense, and McGuire is a deep, deep league add.

We’ll see whether Davante Adams misses time following a scary hit in Week 4. If Cheap Jerseys Wholesale he does, Allison is likely to take on a more prominent role in this offense (Randall Cobb’s already busy workload will increase too); and when you have Aaron Rodgers as your quarterback, that’s noteworthy. He’s a deep league add.

O.J. Simpson released from Nevada prison after serving 9 years

O.J. Simpson is a free man once again.

The 70-year-old former Heisman Trophy winner was released from Lovelock Correctional Center in northern Nevada at 12:08 a.m. PT early Sunday morning after serving nine years for a 2007 armed robbery in Las Vegas.

That plan didn’t go accordingly, as hours after his release, Simpson was in a vehicle at a gas station when a TMZ-style reporter came up with a recorder. Simpson clearly was not pleased, as he let the person know.

“I’ve been in nowhere U.S.A. for the last nine years doing nothing. Nothing has changed in my life. What are you guys … what do you expect? Please? Can I have a break here?”

When asked where he was going, Simpson responded, “None of your business.”

On Friday, Simpson’s attorney said of his client: “No doubt he’s going to Florida.” However, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi said Simpson is not welcome there.

Neuwirth confirmed that the company would continue to keep Newton under Cheap Hockey Jerseys Canada contract without using him, but has started the process of pulling existing advertising that includes Newton.

Newton replaced actor John Stamos as the brand’s primary spokesman in Cheap Goalkeeper Jerseys January 2015, beating out Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson for the job.

Best, worst matchups at all fantasy football positions for Week 5

Matchups are often a driving force behind fantasy football owners’ weekly lineup decisions. When choosing between two (or more) similarly talented players, you know the first question that comes to mind: Which one has the best matchup?

Ah, but what, exactly, constitutes a favorable or unfavorable matchup?

“We’ll slowly start working him back into practice this week,” Ballard said. “We’ll see how much he gets. But we’ve got a plan in place to where we want him to start getting him reps, and then in time, as we can get him incorporated back into team work and all that, we’ll get him back on the field.”

When Luck would return has been the biggest mystery since he had right shoulder surgery in January. Luck began training camp on the physically unable to perform list, but he was taken off PUP prior to the start of the regular season. Ballard and coach Chuck Pagano consistently said that there was no timetable on when Luck would practice. The $140 million quarterback has spent the past nine months working to regain strength in his shoulder, which he originally injured in Week 3 of the 2015 season.

Colts starting center Deyshawn Bond, who was carted off to the locker room during Sunday night’s game against the Seahawks, was diagnosed with a torn quadriceps muscle, a source told ESPN’s Mike Wells.

Jacksonville seems a lot more at home while on the road with its basic winning formula: swarm and cover everything against the pass, create everything offensively through the Cheap Jerseys And Hats power running game. That’s a perfect way to handle New York’s limited offense and wilting defense. And hey, Blake Bortles Cheap Ireland Football Jerseys is playing well, too.
