LAKE FOREST, Ill. Nick Leddy Jersey . - Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall understands hes going to turn heads when he speaks out, given his well-publicized struggles with mental illness. He also wanted to make a few things clear. His illness is behind him. Its important to express himself and he wants the ball. Marshall wasnt backing down on Tuesday after venting a bit about a lack of catches in Sundays loss to New Orleans. He says hes "not a politician" while adding hes "paid to make plays." The Bears are coming off back-to-back losses after a 3-0 start, with the winless New York Giants coming to Soldier Field on Thursday night, and Marshall clearly wants to be more involved after being neutralized by the Saints. Pat LaFontaine Jersey . DArnaud hit one of three doubles for the Mets as they took a 4-0 lead in the first. Then the catchers seventh home run of the season broke the game open in the fifth. The 41-year-old Colon (10-8) retired the first 20 batters in his last outing Wednesday against Seattle, eventually allowing two runs on three hits in 7 1-3 innings in a 3-2 win. Josh Bailey Jersey . The commissioners office said Friday that Sears tested positive for metabolites of Methandienone. Sears will be 23 in March. He signed with the Braves in June 2013 out of Arizona Christian, an NAIA school, and is on the roster of the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Braves. . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., who trains out of San Diego, will fight bantamweight champion (Rowdy) Ronda Rousey on July 5 in the co-main event of UFC 175 in Las Vegas.NEWARK – Im not worried about [years] six and seven right now. Im worried about [year] one and year one I know were going to have a very good player ... If David Clarkson doesnt score 30 goals in a Leaf uniform, but provides all the other things that we know hes going to provide were pretty comfortable were a better team. The words promised to haunt the Maple Leafs general manager one day, just not this quickly. On the fifth day of July in the summer of 2013 Dave Nonis and members of Torontos since-dismantled management group emerged from the teams offices at the Air Canada Centre to proudly announce their newest addition. It took seven years and more than $36 million to reel in David Clarkson on the free agent market. Year one was bad, a self-described disaster, and year two really hasnt been much better. The details are unflattering: ? Clarkson is on pace to amass just 25 points. ? Four hundred and twenty-three players have accumulated more than his five assists so far this season. ? Not one of those five assists was a pass directly resulting in a goal. ? Clarkson holds just a single point in nearly 100 minutes on the power-play, that lone point (a goal) coming on the final day of October. ? Clarkson has gone 39 consecutive games without a power-play point. ? His 22 minor penalties are the sixth-most of any forward in the league. ? He has just two goals in the past 23 games. All in all, the Leafs just arent getting value (or anything close to it) from the onerous contract they extended Clarkson and that matters greatly (and painfully) in a cap world. Theres just no let-up from contracts of this kind. They squeeze teams in an era of precision and thats precisely what the Clarkson contract has done and will continue to do to the Leafs barring some unlikely escape. Toronto projects to be tight against the cap again next year as the roster currently stands and thats due in no small part to the $5.25 million annual cap hit of the 29-year-old winger. Its also why they may have to part with assets of value in the summer to clear space. The Leafs are painfully limited in their options with the Clarkson contract, which has five years still remaining. They could attempt to trade him, but such a possibility seems unlikely given the size of the contract and limitations of the player (not to mention Clarksons limited no-trade clause). Bad contracts have been moved before though and perhaps the Leafs can swallow up half of the contract in exchange for another of the calamitous variety. Now back with the Devils for a second time, Scott Gomez was seen as untradeable two years into a seven-year pact with the Rangers, only to land in Montreal in the summer of 2009. Gomez still had five years and $30 million left on his contract at that point – in a deal that sent future captain Ryan McDonagh to New York – but he remained a productive player of sorts; 16 goals and 58 points in his final season with the Rangers. The same cant be said of Clarkson, who has a mostly limited impact on the game and a contract that cant be undone. The buyout option, along those lines, isnt really an option at all. The savings – both in real money and on the cap – would be so limited as to eliminate it as a logical possibility. Clarksons contract would be done by the time the real cap savings emerged, rendering the buyout useless. David Clarkson Buyout Projection (per CapGeek) YEAR CAP HIT 2015-16 $4,716,667 2016-17 $3,716,667 2017-18 $3,716,667 2018-19 $4,716,667 2019-20 $4,716,667 2020-21 $466,667 2021-22 $466,667 2022-23 $466,667 2023-24 $466,667 2024-25 $466,667 Options, thus, are limited. (Even an eventual assignment to the Marlies would require Clarksons consent as he holds a no-movement clause.) Barring a trade, the Leafs likely have no choice but to grin and bear their mistake and hope to get as much out of Clarkson as they can – which has been exactly their course this season. The club has tried to prop him up where they can. Clarkson has gotten consistent minutes in a top-nine role (14 per game), year-long opportunity on the power-play despite scant production, and an alternate letter with Dion Phaneuf sidelined on Wednesday night. That approach could prove burdensome down the line though as Clarkson ages and the roster changes (improves) around him. The weight of the contract, as such, figures to only worsen in time. Five Points 1. Kessel and a Punch-less Offence Its been six weeks since Phil Kessel last scoored a goal at even-strength. New York Islanders Jerseys. Kessel has just two goals total in that 18-game stretch – stuck on 19 this season – last scoring in a non-power-play situation on Dec. 18. Pretty cold arent I? Kessel concurred after a 2-1 shootout loss to the Devils, the Leafs 15th defeat in the past 18 games. Ive had some shots and peepers and different stuff, made a couple good passes, just nothing goes in when I touch it right now...I dont know what to tell you, the thing wont go in. I dont think Ive been this cold in a long time. His woes only accentuate those of the team. The Leafs have scored only 33 goals in this 18-game stretch, an average of 1.83 per game. James van Riemsdyk has led the cause. He broke a 0-0 tie against the Devils with a breakaway marker that snuck through the pads of Cory Schneider, also firing eight shots on goal along the way. Leaf Scoring since Dec. 18 PLAYER EVEN-STRENGTH GOALS James van Riemsdyk 4 Joffrey Lupul 2 Nazem Kadri 2 Daniel Winnik 2 Mike Santorelli 2 Roman Polak 2 Eight Players Tied 1 Phil Kessel 0 2. Kessel II Kessel has led the Leafs in goals in each of his first five seasons with the club, but hes been passed recently by van Riemsdyk, who is up to 21 so far this season. Sometimes youre going to have to adjust when its not going in for you, head coach Peter Horachek said when questioned on Kessels struggles. Sometimes youve just got to spend more time around the blue [paint] and stay around the net a little bit more and find a way to tip a puck or get an ugly goal. The Leafs are 13-2-1 when Kessel scores this season, 9-21-3 when he doesnt. 3. Replacing Phaneuf The Leafs got their first look at what a world without Dion Phaneuf may look like on Wednesday night. Aggravating a hand injury during a fight in Ottawa last week, Phaneuf will be sidelined on a week to week basis. These are the first games hell miss due to injury since the winter of 2010. Phaneuf led the Leafs both in quantity and quality of minutes. Some guys are going to get more minutes, Horachek said on the subject, some guys are going to pick up the slack...Were just going to have to spread it around. Thats a good opportunity for guys to pick up the slack and get opportunities. Korbinian Holzer got the first look alongside Cody Franson on the teams top pair, later replaced by Jake Gardiner, who led the Leafs with 27 minutes against the Devils. It was a season-high for the 24-year-old defender. What the Leafs brass do get with Phaneuf sidelined is an opportunity to view their defence and team without him – a benefit if the club seeks to move their captain in the offseason. Part of the justification that went along with signing Phaneuf to a seven-year extension early in 2014 was the apparent challenge of replacing the difficult minutes and role he assumed. His absence will provide a testing ground for such a theory. Phaneuf, who is averaging more than 23 minutes this season, has six years left on that long-term deal with an annual cap hit of $7 million. 4. Playing at Home While not speaking specifically on the matter of his contract, Clarkson said hes been able to keep away from the noise that comes with playing in his hometown of Toronto. I have no issue with that, he said. For me personally I dont have Twitter, I dont have Facebook, I dont listen to the radio; Im probably old-school and it sounds funny, but its easy for me. 5. Unlucky Leo Komarov was back only a couple weeks from a month-long concussion when he landed square into the end-boards at Staples Center earlier this month. Komarov injured his right shoulder on the play, returning for one brief shift before missing the next five games with the injury. Its [expletive] bad luck, he said. I hit people, I got hit, but its two injuries that [wasnt] supposed to happen that happened. So its just bad luck. Seemingly not at full health, Komarov played 13 minutes against the Devils. Stats-Pack 3-14-1 – Leafs record in the past 18 games. 64-33 – Margin by which the Leafs have been outscored in those 18 games. 26:49 – Ice-time for Jake Gardiner against the Devils, a season-high. 0 – Even-strength goals for Phil Kessel in the past 18 games. 9-21-3 – Leafs record this season when Kessel doesnt score.

HOUSTON -- Houston coach Kevin McHale worried that his team

HOUSTON -- Houston coach Kevin McHale worried that his team might come out flat Monday night against the struggling Utah Jazz after dropping a close game to the Heat in Miami a day before. Joel Heath Jersey . His fears were completely unwarranted. Terrence Jones scored 30 points and the Rockets ended a three-game skid with their most lopsided victory of the season, a 124-86 win over the Jazz. "Theres got to be an emphasis on how we play and improving," McHale said. "Its really important that we keep improving and getting better." Dwight Howard was out with an ankle strain, leaving the Rockets without him for the first time this season. But they still had no problem handling the Jazz, who have lost five in a row and have one of the worst records in the Western Conference. Houston was up by 19 at halftime and 13 points by Jones in the third quarter helped push the lead to 92-69 entering the fourth. "We just wanted to be aggressive," Jones said. "Coming off three tough ones we wanted to come out and have a lot of energy and just get back to playing ... the way we had been playing." The big lead allowed an overworked James Harden, who had played more than 43 minutes in three of the previous four games, to rest a bit as he watched the fourth quarter from the bench. Harden finished with 15 points. Houston used a 15-0 run starting midway through the fourth quarter with all their starters on the bench except for Jones to push the already lopsided game to a 40-point advantage. Jordan Hamilton had seven points for Houston during the run. Derrick Favours had 15 points for the Jazz a night after scoring a career-high 28. "This is a lesson for the young guys," Jazz coach Ty Corbin said. "They have to learn to get ready every night. Tonight, we just couldnt get it going. It was like we were running in mud and couldnt get ourselves out of it." It was unclear when Howard was injured, but the team announced the mild strain to his left ankle about 40 minutes before tipoff. He had been the only Rockets player to start every game this season before missing Mondays game. Omer Asik started in his place and finished with 12 points and 11 rebounds. Houston got back on track after an 0-3 road trip for its first three-game losing streak of the season. The losses came at Oklahoma City, Chicago and Miami and followed a great stretch in which the Rockets won five straight over some of the Eastern Conferences best teams. "Weve been playing well and were confident in each and how weve been playing," Harden said. "The last three games have been a slip up, but overall I think were in a good place." Patrick Beverley scored 19 and Jeremy Lin had 17 for the Rockets, who are second to San Antonio in the Southwest Division. Jones opened the third quarter with a 3-pointer and scored the first nine points of the second half for Houston to extend the lead to 69-47. Asik had a dunk for the Rockets before Jones added four more points to leave Houston up 75-51. Favours made two free throws for the Jazz midway through the quarter before Beverley scored four points for the Rockets to stretch the lead to 26 points. Utah finally found some offence after, scoring eight straight points with the first six from Alec Burks to cut the lead to 79-61. The Jazz cut the lead to seven on a 3-pointer by Richard Jefferson with about 9 1/2 minutes left in the first half. Houston used a 13-2 spurt to stretch the lead to 47-29 about 3 1/2 minutes later. Lin and Beverley scored all of Houstons points in that span with Beverley scoring eight and Lin adding the rest. Utah went almost four minutes without scoring before a layup by Favours with four minutes left in the second quarter. Houston led 60-41 at halftime. The Rockets were up by two points with three minutes left in the first quarter before using an 8-2 run to close out the period and extend their lead to 28-20. NOTES: Houston F Omri Casspi missed the game with the flu. ... The Jazz won 109-103 in the last meeting with Houston this season. ... Houstons Francisco Garcia and Utahs John Lucas got into a scuffle as the game ended and pushed each other before they were separated and both led off the court. ... The Rockets shot 58.2 per cent and had 30 fast-break points, which were both season highs. Kendall Lamm Jersey .During the week, McCoy told reporters he respected Hoyer for his intelligence, athleticism and how he conducts himself on and off the field. This wasnt an act, some attempt at psyching out Hoyer. Brian Cushing Jersey . - The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are going to meet with Richie Incognito to determine if one of the central figures in the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal can help their struggling offensive line. . Lauzon rushed for 42 yards on 15 carries for the Vert et Or (2-3) while quarterback Jeremi Roch completed 19-of-32 passes for 251 yards and one interception. Alexandre Aube scored the other touchdown for Sherbrooke.With emotions over Saturdays tentative five-year collective bargaining agreement between the CFL and the Players Association running high, the union has decided to act in an attempt to cool any tension. Sources tell TSN that union executives travelled to select CFL cities Monday to open dialogue with players and answer questions. After the tentative deal was reached Saturday night, several players posted messages of frustration and disappointment on social media - and that carried over into Sunday on both the web and the field. One source emphasized the purpose of the executives trips wasnt to convince players to vote for the tentative CBA, but for executives to "show face" with players in the hopes of, "bridging a gap in communication." On Saturday, the Players Associations team representatives held a conference call to measure the emotions of players across the league. "Personally, I think the right move is to ratify [the tentative deal]," Hamilton Tiger-Cats representative Peter Dyakowski said Monday when asked how anxious he was for a ratification vote. "However, Ive seen a lot of people disagree with that." The ultimate goal of the executives outreach, whether explicitly stated or not, is to secure a majority "Yes" vote in ratification, which is set to take place in the coming days. TSN has learned that the Players Association is trying to expedite the process of obtaining a physical copy of the tentative deal in the next couple of days to pass it along to its members, who can then read it over and ask any questions to clarify concerns. Right now, legal counsel for both the league and the players are reviewing and solidifying language in the potential agreement. The earliest the players hope to hold a ratification vote is Wednesday, and the union would require six of the leagues nine teams voting in favour - with players on each team voting 50 per cent-plus-one to ratify the agreement - for the tentative CBA to pass. All players, rookies included, will be allowed to cast a ballot. TSN has also learned that prominent CFL agents are encouraging their clients to accept the tentative CBA. "But a vote to reject the tentative CBA is not a vote to strike," a player with knowledge of the ratification process told TSN. Strike ballots from all nine CFL teams have been counted already, with a majority of players across the CFL voting in favour of a strike. If the tentative CBA is rejected, the union wwill notify the CFL and attempt to reopen negotiations with the league. Zach Cunningham Jersey. "I think if we look at this deal through the lens of what some teams are making, and what our new TV deal is bringing in, and what we see the future holding for us, it doesnt seem like a fair deal, or a just deal," Dyakowski said. "But if you look at it compared to our last two CBAs, in a vacuum, and look at the numbers we have made huge strides." In the last year of the CFLs previous CBA, the salary cap was set at $4.4 million and the minimum salary was set at $45,000. In the first year of the tentative CBA, the salary cap would be set at $5 million and increase annually by $50,000, with minimum salaries rising to $50,000. Also included are the elimination of the team option year in non-rookie contracts, and a ratification bonus of $7,500 for veterans and $1,500 for rookies. The CFLPA will reportedly control the disbursement of the bonus, and set a veteran scale that could potentially award players whove played six-plus years in the league $12,000. "We have made huge improvements; we have won on a lot of football-related issues, a lot of player safety issues," added Dyakowski. "There are a lot of good things in this deal being realistic, being pragmatic. I believe this is a good deal, without any bloodshed." According to reports, Roughriders union representative Brendon LaBatte feels Saskatchewans locker room will vote to ratify the tentative agreement. But LaBatte knows of vets in the room willing to sit out the season and miss pay checks because they feel the possible deal isnt good enough. And again, there was vexation over social media, as one player in particular took to Twitter to voice his disapproval of the union executives team visits. "Just wasting more of our Union Dues...Aint nobody in Saskatchewan wanna see them, hope they bring their own security," tweeted Ricky Foley of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. The defensive lineman tweeted later, "I am voting YES to accept the deal & NOT strike...cause weve been backed in2 a corner & I have no confidence in our execs or legal counsel." Although he knows how his locker room feels, Dyakowski isnt sure how players across the league will vote when its time for them to cast their ballots. "I feel in my gut that [the tentative CBA] will be ratified in Hamilton," the offensive lineman said. "Thats all I can say."

SAN JOSE, Calif. Tarik Cohen Jersey . -- Cory Hodgson scored in the fourth round of the shootout and Ryan Miller made 47 saves for the Buffalo Sabres, who overcame a pair of blown third-period leads to get their third win in 17 games this season, 5-4 over the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday night. Henrik Tallinder, Cody McCormick, Drew Stafford and Tyler Ennis also scored for the Sabres, who have beaten the Sharks five straight times. Tyler Kennedy and Tomas Hertl scored 70 seconds apart early in the third to erase a two-goal deficit for the Sharks. Tommy Wingels got another equalizer late in the third, but San Jose still lost its third straight game. Marty Havlat also scored and Antti Niemi made 32 saves. Matt Moulson and Logan Couture each scored in the first round of the shootout, and then Miller stopped three straight shots before Hodgson beat Niemi for the winner. The third period was filled with excitement with the teams combining for five goals starting when Ennis scored Buffalos second road power-play goal of the season to make it 3-2. But the Sharks erased that lead in a flash. The first goal came when Joe Pavelski won a faceoff to Marc-Edouard Vlasic, whose shot deflected toward Kennedy, who knocked it in for his second goal of the season 3:19 into the period. Then just over a minute later, Hertl took a rebound of Scott Hannans shot and skated around the net for a wraparound goal that was his ninth of the season. The Sabres appeared on their way to a rare win when Tallinder scored midway through the third and then they had a two-man advantage later in the period. But Jamie McBain hit the post during the 5-on-3, and the Sharks tied it late in the period shortly after a penalty to Marcus Foligno ended. Wingels dove into the crease to knock in the loose puck to tie the game and excite the sellout crowd. What appeared to be a decided mismatch on paper between a Buffalo team that had one regulation win all season, and a San Jose team with just one regulation loss was anything but on ice. The Sabres overcame an early deficit and scored twice in the second period to take a 2-1 lead heading into the third. The first goal came off a San Jose mistake as Jason Demers and Kennedy had trouble clearing the puck out of the defensive zone, and Stafford capitalized, beating Niemi with a quick wrister to tie the game early in the second. Just seconds after Kennedy and Johan Larsson were sent off for fighting midway through the period, Zemgus Girgensons won an offensive zone faceoff from Andrew Desjardins. McCormick got the loose puck and beat Niemi with a wrist shot between his pads to give Buffalo the lead. Miller took over from there with stellar play on a pair of power plays late in the second. After Wingels hit the crossbar with a nifty shot from the side of the net, Miller got his pad on Justin Brauns rebound attempt to preserve the lead. The Sharks predictably scored first with good pressure from Coutures line paying off with a goal midway through the first period when Havlat backhanded a loose puck in front of the net off Miller and in for his first goal of the season. That ended Millers shutout streak against the Sharks at 139 minutes, 22 seconds and 88 straight saves. It also marked the 15th time in 17 games that the Sabres allowed the first goal. They have been outscored 21-2 in the opening period this season, while the Sharks have outscored opponents 20-8. NOTES: Tallinder has scored in consecutive games for the first time since January 2006. ... The Sabres had allowed the first goal in 15 of 17 games. Dion Sims Jersey . -- Wichita State is all alone in the record book. Dan Hampton Jersey . Howard hit a three-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-3 win over the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday night. . Sweeting scored two in the first and three in the second before Strong (4-4) got two back in the fourth. Sweeting then scored three in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the seventh to grab a commanding 9-2 lead.ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions hired Joe Lombardi as offensive co-ordinator, the team announced Tuesday. Lombardi, grandson of Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant for New Orleans since 2007. He was hired as quarterbacks coach in 2009, the season the Saints won their only Super Bowl over the Indianapolis Colts, who were then coached by current Lions coach Jim Calddwell. John Timu Jersey. Saints quarterback Drew Brees has passed for more than 5,000 yards in a season three times with Lombardi as his position coach. Lombardis first NFL job was with the Atlanta Falcons as a defensive assistant in 2007. He also coached in the XFL for the New York-New Jersey Hitmen. Lombardi also worked at Dayton, Virginia Military Institute, Bucknell and Mercyhurst.
