ANAHEIM – It was about the moment Randy Carlyle felt his team slipping. Cheap Tyrell Crosby Jersey . His Maple Leafs beat the Ducks on a mid-December night in a manner that had become the worrying custom during his nearly three-season rule: Torontos potent offence pumped six past Frederik Andersen and Jonathan Bernier stopped 40 of 42 shots. The process was wrong, but the result right in what was a sixth straight win and the final bullet in an all too misleading 10-1-1 run. One month later with Carlyle since fired (his concerns proving prescient) and the Leafs are beginning to get that process right, but not yet finding those results. Luck is suddenly churning against the luckiest of teams. Its funny we were just talking about that, Daniel Winnik said after a 4-0 loss in Anaheim, how we used to give up 40 shots and wed win games and now were holding teams to under 25 and were losing. It was the third loss in four games since the coaching change – which saw Peter Horachek gain control – and 10th in the past 13 overall for the Leafs. It was also the second time in as many nights in Southern California that a usually powerful offence was shut out. Unlike that earlier win over Anaheim though – in which Berniers brilliance prevailed – the Leafs actually played fine in this most recent test against a beast of the West, but they couldnt beat Andersen and were undone by a couple bad breaks and the ferocity of Corey Perry. They continue to play in a manner thats conducive to long-term success, even if the results arent showing up in the short-term. The chances are maybe less, but were giving up a lot less, said a noticeably frustrated Horachek. Forty shots as opposed to 25 is a big difference. The Leafs are finally thinking defence first under his direction, even if that costs them a chance at some extra offence. Its a matter of continuing to play that way even when the results arent showing. The way were playing I think more often than not youre going win games more than you lose, Winnik observed. All too lucky often during that smoke and mirrors run of late 2014 – and well before that – the Leafs have seen that luck run out recently. Theyve scored two or less in five of the past six games, getting next to nothing on a usually potent power-play. They played it tight again on Wednesday, but slipped up just enough to lose the game. Anaheim scored the opener at the tail-end of a full two minute, five-on-three advantage, adding three straight from Perry. The former Hart Trophy champ scored his first of the night on a shot that clipped the right skate of Cody Franson. His second of the evening was a breakaway the Leafs believed adamantly was offside, his third plunging into an empty net, Ducks fans howling furiously in anticipation. Its a frustrating night, thats for sure, Franson said. I thought we played a pretty strong systematic game. We kept a very good, solid offensive team to 25 shots. Systematically I think were doing a lot of good things and stuff that we can continually build on. Weve definitely got some tough puck luck right now and its frustrating, but weve got to stick with it and continually move forward. For all the improvement theyve managed under the new bench boss though, the Leafs need to start making that process work toward some result and soon. They sit two points back of Florida and five points back of Boston for the final wild card spot in the East. Five Points 1. Dry Spell The Leafs were the luckiest team in the league when they rung off 10 wins in 12 games, burning with an on-ice shooting percentage of more than 14 percent and a PDO of 108 (anything above 100 registering as lucky). That luck has turned in the past couple weeks. Suddenly the chances Toronto is managing arent falling and while playing to a tighter brand the quantity of chances has diminished. Weve been happy with our process of how weve been doing things, weve just got to capitalize on our chances, James van Riemsdyk said. Were not probably trading as many chances now so youre going to really have to bear down on the ones you go get. Once the highest-scoring team in the league the Leafs have fallen to fifth at 3.04 goals per game. Theyve managed just nine in the past six games. Well find ways to score, van Riemsdyk added. We have a lot of firepower. Well find ways to score. 2. Shot Suppression Toronto managed something in defeat that it never could under Carlyles direction. They held an opponent under 30 shots for the fourth consecutive game, the Ducks managing just 25 on Jonathan Bernier. That didnt happen once with Carlyle at the helm, achieved in Horacheks first four games behind the bench. The Leafs have given up less than 23 shots per game since Horachek was moved into the head coaching role. Given the light night for his no. 1 goaltender, Horachek may opt to go back to Bernier in San Jose on Thursday night. He wouldnt commit to using James Reimer prior to Wednesdays game. Sometimes you look at situations where you think you want to get your other goalie in...and a lot of times that is on back-to-backs, Horachek said. Clearly thats a good time to do it, but sometimes you need to get the points and you need to balance that as well. 3. Concussed David Booth was on the ice about 20 minutes before the Leafs morning skate was due to kick off on Wednesday. He was alone on the Honda Centre surface, putting in extra skating and getting up a few extra shots. Booth left the building later that night with an apparent concussion. The 30-year-old took a Sami Vatanen elbow to the face during the third period, wobbling nervously around the ice afterward. He required help from teammates and then team trainers to get to Torontos dressing room. Horachek offered no update on his status after the game. Booth has a notable concussion history. He missed 54 games combined with two separate concussions during the 2009-10 season. 4. Road Swoon The Leafs are nearing the middle of a hellish stretch that sees them play 17 times on the road in 22 games. So far, not so good. Theyve now lost eight of the past 10 in visiting confines, facing tall tests in San Jose (Thursday) and St. Louis (Saturday) in the coming days. Their seven road wins this season are more than only the Sabres, Hurricanes and Flyers in the Eastern Conference. 5. Lost Teeth & Stitches Roman Polak lost two teeth and needed more than 20 stitches to repair the damage he suffered last week. Polak took a Troy Brouwer blast to the face a week ago, unbelievably returning to action that night with a badly swollen right cheek. I think adrenaline was up so I didnt feel it, he said. Polak couldnt speak much for days after the initial blow and there was a brief time when he struggled to see out of one eye. But against the advice of the team he decided to play without a cage or visor in the days that followed. He tried them briefly, hated how they affected his vision and ditched it thereafter. The 28-year-old called the overall experience awful, not exactly horrified though at how the initial damage caused his face to look though. I thought it was going to be worse than that, Polak said. I think I can still do my modeling career after I retire. Stats-Pack 2-8-0 – Leafs record in their past 10 games on the road. 4 – Consecutive games in which the Leafs have held an opponent under 30 shots. 22.75 – Average shots against the Leafs in four games with Peter Horachek behind the bench. 1:54 – Ice-time for Daniel Winnik during a two-minute five-on-three Ducks power-play. 1.5 – Goals per game for the Leafs in their past six.

Sterling was banned for life and fined US$2.5 million by the NBA on Tuesday for racist comments the league says he made in a recorded conversation. Nash, who plays for the rival L.A. Lakers, spoke as a representative of current NBA players at a press conference assembled by Sacramento mayor and National Basketball Players Association adviser Kevin Johnson. Cheap Tracy Walker Jersey . Espanyol midfielder Sanchez intercepted Bilbao goalkeeper Gorka Iraizozs clearance and, having spotted a gap, risked using his less-favoured left foot to fire a beautifully precise long-range shot that bounced in from high up the near post in the 24th minute. . -- C.J. Cron hit an RBI single on the first pitch he saw in the major leagues, doubled his second time up and hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the sixth inning to lead the Los Angeles Angels to a 5-3 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday night.NEW YORK -- Alex Rodriguez was dealt the most severe punishment in the history of baseballs drug agreement when an arbitrator ruled the New York Yankees third baseman is suspended for the entire 2014 season as a result of a drug investigation by Major League Baseball. The decision by arbitrator Fredric Horowitz on Saturday cut the suspension issued Aug. 5 by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig from 211 games to this years entire 162-game regular-season schedule plus any post-season games. The three-time American League Most Valuable Player will lose just over $22 million of his $25 million salary. Rodriguez vowed to continue his fight in federal court to reverse the decision. "Its virtually impossible. The arbitration will stand. I think its almost inconceivable that a federal court would overturn it," said former baseball Commissioner Fay Vincent, a graduate of Yale Law School. "The arbitration is itself an appeal from the commissioners judgment. How many appeals do you go?" Rodriguez is the most high-profile player ensnared by baseballs drug rules, which were first agreed to in 2002 as management and union attempted to combat the use of steroids and other performance-enhancing drugs. In sustaining more than three-quarters of Seligs initial penalty, Horowitzs decision will be widely viewed as a victory for the 79-year-old Selig, who has ruled baseball since 1992 and says he intends to retire in January 2015. A 14-time All-Star, Rodriguez has been baseballs highest-paid player under a $275 million, 10-year contract. He has spent parts of the last six seasons on the disabled list and will be 39 years old when he is eligible to return to the field in 2015. He is signed with the Yankees through the 2017 season. Rodriguez admitted five years ago he used performance-enhancing drugs while with Texas from 2001-03 but has denied using them since. He already sued MLB and Selig in October, claiming they are engaged in a "witch hunt" against him. "The number of games sadly comes as no surprise, as the deck has been stacked against me from day one," Rodriguez said in a statement. "This is one mans decision, that was not put before a fair and impartial jury, does not involve me having failed a single drug test, is at odds with the facts and is inconsistent with the terms of the Joint Drug Agreement and the Basic Agreement, and relies on testimony and documents that would never have been allowed in any court in the United States because they are false and wholly unreliable." The Major League Baseball Players Association had filed a grievance last summer saying the discipline was without "just cause." The 65-year-old Horowitz, a California-based lawyer who became the sports independent arbitrator in 2012, heard the case over 12 sessions from Sept. 30 until Nov. 21. Technically, he chaired a three-man arbitration panel that included MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred and union General Counsel Dave Prouty. The written opinion was not made public. In Rodriguezs only partial victory, Horowitz ruled he is entitled to 21-183rds, or about 11.5 per cent, of his salary this year, a person familiar with the decision said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the decision was not made public. That comes to $2,868,852.46. Baseballs drug agreement says the amount of lost pay shall match the number of regular-season games suspended, regardless of days over the season, which is 183 days this year. Despite the ban, baseballs drug rules allow Rodriguez to participate in spring training and play in exhibition games, although the Yankees may try to tell him not to report. New York figures to be happy with the decision, which eliminates uncertainty and gives the Yankees additional money to sign Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka or other free agents while remaining under the $189 million luxury tax threshold. Cheap Frank Ragnow Jersey. MLB was largely pleased. "While we believe the original 211-game suspension was appropriate, we respect the decision rendered by the panel and will focus on our continuing efforts on eliminating performance-enhancing substances from our game," MLB said in a statement. The union said it "strongly disagrees" with the ruling but added "we recognize that a final and binding decision has been reached." "We respect the collectively-bargained arbitration process which led to the decision," the unions statement added. Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch testified in the hearing after reaching an agreement with MLB to provide evidence. "Tony Bosch doesnt take joy in seeing Alex Rodriguez suspended from baseball, but he believes the arbitrators decision was appropriate," his spokeswoman, Joyce Fitzpatrick, said in a statement. Bosch is to appear Sunday on "60 Minutes" along with MLB Chief Operating Officer Rob Manfred. In an interview with "CBS Evening News on Saturday," Scott Pelley of "60 Minutes" said Bosch told him he administered six banned substances to Rodriguez, including testosterone and human growth hormone. Picked first in the 1993 amateur draft, Rodriguez reached the majors at age 18 with Seattle and was an All-Star by 20. He seemed destined to become one of the greatest players in the history of the game, and appeared in line to break the career home run record -- he ranks fifth with 654. "This injustice is MLBs first step toward abolishing guaranteed contracts in the 2016 bargaining round, instituting lifetime bans for single violations of drug policy, and further insulating its corrupt investigative program from any variety of defence by accused players, or any variety of objective review," Rodriguez said. "I have been clear that I did not use performance-enhancing substances as alleged in the notice of discipline, or violate the Basic Agreement or the Joint Drug Agreement in any manner, and in order to prove it I will take this fight to federal court. I am confident that when a federal judge reviews the entirety of the record, the hearsay testimony of a criminal whose own records demonstrate that he dealt drugs to minors, and the lack of credible evidence put forth by MLB, that the judge will find that the panel blatantly disregarded the law and facts, and will overturn the suspension." Rodriguez has claimed Selig was on a vendetta to smear him as a way of burnishing the commissioners image following the Steroids Era. Both sides have admitted paying for evidence as they prepared for the hearing. Fourteen players were penalized following the Biogenesis probe, and they all accepted penalties. Milwaukee outfielder Ryan Braun sat out the final 65 games of the season, the other players were given 50-game suspensions. A-Rods drug penalty was for "his use and possession of numerous forms of prohibited performance-enhancing substances, including testosterone and human growth hormone over the course of multiple years," MLB said last summer. His punishment under the labour contract was "for attempting to cover up his violations of the program by engaging in a course of conduct intended to obstruct and frustrate the office of the commissioners investigation." Rodriguezs penalty was more than double the previous high for a PED suspension, a 100-game ban given last year to San Francisco pitcher Guillermo Mota for a second offence. Kansas City infielder Miguel Tejada was given a 105-game ban last summer following a third positive test for amphetamines.
