  • Houston: While the RDatum03.08.2018 09:33
    Thema von elaine95 im Forum Deutsch in Medien und...

    LeBron James flew back to Los Angeles from a family vacation in the Caribbean. He could be there longer than usual.

    Hours before NBA free agency opened with the three-time champion as its most coveted prize Cheap Dalton Schultz Jersey , James returned Saturday to Southern California, where he has two homes and a film production company. The Lakers are hoping they can persuade him to sign with them and return them to glory.

    Los Angeles is among the teams in the mix to land James after his agent told the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday that he will not exercise his $35.6 million contract option for next season. At 12:01 a.m. Sunday, James will be an unrestricted free agent, and agent Rich Paul is expected to contact several teams with the Lakers and Cavs atop his list.

    By declining his option, James positioned himself to be able to choose where he’ll play next, and Cleveland Authentic Josey Jewell Jersey , just up the road from his home near Akron, remains a strong possibility. But there are at least three other teams – and maybe an outsider or two – with legitimate shots at landing James, who made it clear following this year’s NBA Finals that he’s still driven to win championships.

    While every team dreams of being ruled by King James, only a few have a legit chance of signing him.

    Here are the cases – for and against – the leading contenders:

    CLEVELAND

    WHY: Home; money.

    James came back four years ago to a hero’s welcome, something that seemed unimaginable when he left in disgrace four years earlier for Miami. But he vowed to do everything he could to deliver a title to championship-starved Cleveland. He delivered in 2016, erasing past sins and raising James to a worshipped level few athletes in any sport have experienced. His family is comfortable here and it’s where he has complete control.

    The Cavs can also offer him the most lucrative package Cheap Robert Griffin III Jersey , a five-year, $209 million contract.

    WHY NOT: Flawed roster; blemished relationship with owner Dan Gilbert.

    Last summer’s stunning trade of guard Kyrie Irving left the Cavs without a quality running mate for James, who was forced to carry a heavier offensive load throughout the regular season and playoffs. Cleveland has deep salary-cap issues – partially caused by James’ failure to commit long-term – and the Cavs currently lack enough talent to unseat the champion Golden State Warriors.

    Gilbert and James mended some fences for his return in 2014, but they remain distant other than a shared commitment to winning. Gilbert has gone above and beyond financial barriers to appease James, but the well could be running dry.

    LOS ANGELES LAKERS

    WHY: Salary-cap space; business interests; iconic franchise.

    With some savvy moves, the Lakers are poised to potentially add two superstars – James and Paul George and maybe Kawhi Leonard – to a team featuring up-and-coming talents like Kyle Kuzma Patrick Corbin Jersey , Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball, who is reportedly dealing with a knee injury. James loves the Hollywood lights, and with two homes in the Los Angeles area as well as a film production company, he has already established some roots in the land of movie stars and slow-moving traffic. The appeal of playing for one of the league’s most storied teams is another allure.

    WHY NOT: Youth; the Western Conference.

    There’s little doubt James has some quality years ahead of him. But does he have enough time to let a group of unproven players with no postseason experience develop into a title contender? And if he jumps conferences for the first time in his career, the path to the Finals is far more treacherous.

    PHILADELPHIA

    WHY: Rising team; staying in the East.

    In Sixers guard Ben Simmons, James sees a younger version of himself and he’d relish the chance to play alongside the 21-year-old while mentoring him. The Sixers also have center Joel Embiid Authentic Arden Key Jersey , 24, projected to become the game’s next dominant big men. Philadelphia would instantly vault from conference contender to favorite with James, who could make a strong run at his ninth straight Finals in Year One.

    WHY NOT: Too young; front-office dysfunction.

    Much like the Lakers, the Sixers lack postseason experience and James would be surrounded by players who have barely tasted the postseason. General manager Bryan Colangelo’s resignation following an investigation into whether he created Twitter accounts to criticize his own players, has given the impression that the team isn’t operating in concert and then would turn off James quickly.

    OTHER CONTENDERS

    Houston: While the Rockets once seemed a good fit, James declining his option all but eliminated the chances of him joining up with close friend Chris Paul and MVP James Harden. If James had opted in with the Cavs Babe Ruth Jersey , they could have worked out a sign-and-trade with Houston.

    San Antonio: James reveres Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, but living in Texas doesn’t seem appealing to the star’s family and the Spurs are still trying to figure out what to do with Leonard, who can become a free agent after next season.

    Braden Holtby made a strong case for more playing time.

    Holtby made 34 saves and Nicklas Backstrom started a three-goal second period as the surging Capitals beat the St. Louis Blues 4-2 Monday night.

    Alex Ovechkin got his league-leading 46th goal Cheap Tre'Quan Smith Jersey , and Alex Chiasson and Andre Burakovsky also scored to help the Capitals get their seventh win in eight games, and 11th in the last 13.

    Holtby, who has been sharing the goaltending duties with Philipp Grubauer the past six weeks, won for the fourth time in his last five starts and improved to 7-0-0 in seven career starts against St. Louis.

    Grubauer made 36 stops in a 3-1 win at Pittsburgh on Sunday that clinched the Capitals’ third straight Metropolitan Division title. Holby turned in a similarly strong effort 24 hours later.

    ”Both goalies are playing really well Kenny Lofton Jersey ,” said coach Barry Trotz, who has not named a starter for the playoffs that begin next week. ”They’re pushing each other. They’ve responded every night.”

    Holtby is not worried about the future. He simply focuses on the task at hand each night.

    ”I’ve always been a big believer in leaving those decisions to other people and focus on your job and your job only,” Holtby said. ”And that’s stopping pucks and helping this team win.”

    Holtby improved to 33-16-4 on the season, while Grubauer is 15-9-3

    Chiasson feels his team is in a no-lose situation entering postseason play with two solid goalies.

    ”Those two have been the backbone of this team all year Roberto Perez Jersey ,” Chiasson said. ”Whenever one was not playing as well as he wanted, the other was picking up the charge.”

    Vladimir Tarasenko and Patrik Berglund scored for the Blues, who lost their second straight and remained one point behind Colorado for the second and final wild card in the Western Conference. The Avalanche lost 3-1 at Los Angeles later.

    ”There’s not a single part of me that doesn’t believe that we’re going to get there,” St. Louis coach Mike Yeo said.

    Blues defenseman Colton Parayko realizes his team has its back to the wall.

    ”We know we’re basically in a win-out situation Cheap M.J. Stewart Jersey ,” Parayko said. ”We also know what we’ve got to do to win. We’ve done it the last couple of weeks.”

    Jake Allen finished with 30 saves.

    Backstrom, Chiasson and Burakovsky scored in the first 7:54 of the second period to give the Capitals a 3-1 lead.

    Backstrom tied it 1-1 by firing a shot past goalie Jake Allen from close range just 51 seconds into the period, giving him 20 goals in three straight seasons.

    ”We came off a huge win Sunday and got a lot of confidence with that,” Backstrom said. ”And we just kept going.”

    Chiasson put Washington ahead with his ninth at 2:39 Brett Gardner Jersey , and Burakovsky gave the Capitals a two-goal lead with his 11th a little more than five minutes later.

    ”Obviously we’re not taking our foot off the gas,” Burakovsky said. ”We’re battling just as hard for every game and every point.”

    Berglund pulled St. Louis within one with 8 1/2 minutes left in the second, but Ovechkin scored into an empty net with 1:31 left in the third.

    NOTES: Ovechkin played in his 1,001st NHL game. … The Capitals have won six of their last nine games in back-to-back situations. … St. Louis RW Scottie Upshall is out the rest of the season with a lacerated kidney. … G Allen has started the Blues’ last 13 games. … Washington RW T.J. Oshie was held out of the contest as a precautionary measure. He is nursing a lower body injury and is listed as day-to-day.

    UP NEXT

    Capitals: Close the regular season with back-to-back home games against Nashville on Thursday and New Jersey on Saturday.

    Blues: Host Chicago on Wednesday before closing with two road games.

    Earl Thomas is putting the pressure on the Seattle Seahawks for a new contract Julio Teheran Jersey , saying he will not participate in any team activities until his contract situation is resolved.

    That includes the upcoming mandatory minicamp.

    The three-time All-Pro safety posted a lengthy statement on social media Sunday, saying he wants ”certainty in regards to the upcoming years of my career,” before he takes part in any Seahawks related activities. Thomas is entering the final year of his current deal signed before the 2014 season. He is scheduled to make $8.5 million in base salary in 2018.

    Seattle opens its minicamp on Tuesday Tyler Clippard Jersey , and Thomas could face fines of about $84,000 if he skips all three days. Last week, coach Pete Carroll said he expected all players that had been skipping the optional team workouts – most notably Thomas Cheap Jaleel Scott Jersey , defensive end Frank Clark and cornerback Byron Maxwell – would be in attendance for the minicamp.

    Clearly Thomas has a different idea of where things stand with the team that selected him No. 14 overall in the 2010 draft.

    Thomas said after eight seasons he, ”earned the right to have this taken care of as soon as possible.” Thomas has spoken openly of wanting a new deal since the end of last season, when some of his antics gave hints he wanted out of Seattle. In his statement Cheap Nate Solder Jersey , Thomas said he wants to remain with the Seahawks for the rest of his career.

    Toward the end of last season there was some visible dissention. There was a brief rift with linebacker Bobby Wagner, who has become the vocal leader of Seattle’s defense with the departures of Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Richard Sherman this offseason. And Thomas caught everyone’s attention when he chased down Dallas coach Jason Garrett following Seattle’s win in Dallas and told the Cowboys coach Cheap Cassius Marsh Jersey , ”If they kick me to the curb, come get me.”

    Seattle made the decision before April’s draft it would move forward with Thomas in 2018. Thomas was the one player under contract that could have landed Seattle a bounty of draft picks, but Carroll and general manager John Schneider held on to the star safety despite the contract uncertainty.

    Thomas just turned 29 and was an All-Pro between 2012-14. Thomas had his 2016 season cut short by a broken leg Authentic Frank Ragnow Jersey , but he returned last year to play in 14 games with 88 total tackles and two interceptions.

    ”I’m going to continue to work my craft and put in work so that I can add to the team and give us the best chance to win,” Thomas wrote. ”I hope my teammates understand where I’m coming from. I believe this is the right thing to do.”

    The San Jose Sharks are closing in on a seven-year contract with Evander Kane that will keep the high-scoring forward off the free-agent market.

    A person familiar with the negotiations says the contract is expected to be finalized on Wednesday. The person spoke to The Associated Press on Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because the deal hasn’t been completed. Sportsnet first reported the two sides were close to an agreement.

    Kane Brad Boxberger Jersey , who turns 27 in August, was acquired from Buffalo at the trade deadline. Under the terms of that trade, the Sabres will now get a first-round pick in 2019 instead of a second-rounder because Kane signed with San Jose. The selection is lottery-protected Authentic Lorenzo Carter Jersey , so it could be moved to 2020.

    Kane’s status was one of the biggest questions heading into this offseason for the Sharks, who were knocked out of the playoffs in six games in the second round against eventual Western Conference champion Vegas.

    Star Joe Thornton is the other prominent potential free agent on the team but has said he’s willing to come back on a reduced one-year deal.

    Kane had issues off the ice and with teammates at times during his stints with Winnipeg and Buffalo, but melded well with a veteran Sharks team and got the opportunity to go to the postseason for the first time in his career.

    ”He’s fit in well Cheap Korey Toomer Jersey ,” teammate Logan Couture said after the season ended. ”You don’t listen to what people say about him before. Getting to know him over these last few months he’s a great teammate. He cares and he wants to win. He was fun to play with.”

    Kane made an immediate impact in San Jose, stepping right onto the top line with captain Joe Pavelski and helping ease the loss of Thornton, who went down with a season-ending knee injury in January. Kane used his speed and physical play to deliver nine goals and five assists in 17 games and spark an eight-game winning streak that sent San Jose to the playoffs.

    Kane shined in the first round with three goals and an assist during a sweep against Anaheim. But he struggled a bit against the Golden Knights Cheap Joseph Noteboom Jersey , slowed by injuries to his knee and shoulder that lingered from the end of the regular season.

    He had one goal and a minus-5 rating in five games against Vegas. He missed Game 2 of that series when he was suspended for cross-checking Pierre-Edouard Bellemare.

    Kane finished last season with 29 goals and 25 assists, his second-most productive season to his 30-goal, 27-assist campaign for the Jets in 2011-12. Kane has 186 goals and 168 assists in 574 career games since entering the NHL as the fourth overall pick by Atlanta in 2009.

    LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates arrived in style Friday.

    Each wore the same suit with a white shirt and a dark tie. Some even wore sunglasses for the pivotal Game 3 against the Pacers.

    It was all by design.

    James wanted the three-time defending Eastern Conference championships to show they were unified when they arrived at Indiana.

    So the four-time MVP and three-time NBA champion reached out to designer Thom Browne Youth Tarvarius Moore Jersey , and suddenly the Cavs were all the rage of the fashion world.

    Much has been made that James needs more help from his teammates to survive what has been a tougher-than-expected series.

    But James didn’t seem worried before the team’s morning shootaround.

    ”I have confidence in all my guys going out and playing the game the right way, so we’ll see what happens Cheap Martinas Rankin Jersey ,” James said.

    The message seemed to resonate within the locker room.

    After getting blown out in Game 1, and hanging on for a 100-97 win in Game 2 Nomar Garciaparra Jersey , the Cavs forced 10 first-half turnovers.

    And the offense got in sync, too Cheap Courtland Sutton Jersey , during a 15-2 first-quarter run. Cleveland jumped out to 57-40 halftime lead.

    Trevor Bauer turned from pitcher to politician to prize fighter.

    If the weather was going to finish him Authentic Kareem Martin Jersey , Bauer was going down swinging.

    Bauer pitched seven scoreless innings before a rain delay ended his night, and Jason Kipnis homered to lead the Cleveland Indians to a 6-2 win over the sliding and sloppy Chicago White Sox on Monday.

    Bauer (6-5) allowed just three hits, struck out eight and was in line to potentially pitch his first career shutout. However, after the game was halted in the seventh for 35 minutes, manager Terry Francona pulled the right-hander following the delay.

    Not before Bauer pleaded his case.

    ”Carl Willis was lucky he didn’t come tell me,” Bauer said Authentic Terrelle Pryor Sr. Jersey , referring to Cleveland’s pitching coach. ”I told him any one but Tito and I was throwing fists.”

    Bauer was joking, of course, but Francona liked how his right-hander fought to remain in the game.

    ”Boy, I give him credit, man,” Francona said. ”Even during the rain delay he was politicking. It just doesn’t make sense. But I gotta tell you Authentic Jeremiah Attaochu Jersey , if you’re going to get into a little bit of a push and shove, I like it that he wants to stay in. I respect the hell out of that. I just didn’t think it made sense. I don’t have any doubt he could have done it, too. ”

    Roberto Perez drove in two runs off Dylan Covey (3-2) as Cleveland improved to 15-4 in its last 19 home games against Chicago.

    The White Sox committed three errors – one by Covey – in the first three innings, lost their fifth straight and dropped a season-high 23 games under .500.

    Matt Davidson homered in the ninth for Chicago.

    White Sox manager Rick Renteria felt Covey deserved better.

    ”Believe it or not even though Dylan did have a few walks, he didn’t throw the ball as badly as the numbers might show,” he said. ”We didn’t defend for him. A lot of sloppy play out there to be honest. We just didn’t catch the ball and pick him up when we could have and he still ground out five innings.”

    Chicago’s hitters couldn’t get anything going against Bauer Joc Pederson Jersey , who struck out 12 in a tough loss against the White Sox and Covey last week. Bauer was bidding to tie a club record held by two-time Cy Young Award winner Corey Kluber with his fifth consecutive game of at least 10 strikeouts.

    Bauer got to eight, but was denied any more because of a line of storms off Lake Erie and Francona’s decision not to push him further. Bauer has thrown at least 100 pitches in all 16 starts this season.

    The enigmatic starter is crediting his success to some new pitches and a ”tunneling approach” in which he divides the plate into quadrants.

    ”The more I’m able to execute those spots, with given pitches, the more confusion there is in the hitters because they see the same look over and over, and the ball goes different ways at different speeds and what not,” he said.

    Perez’s two-run Didi Gregorius Jersey , ground-rule double highlighted Cleveland’s three-run second inning, which was set up by Chicago second baseman Yoan Moncada’s fielding error.

    MARSHALL PLAN

    Indians reliever Evan Marshall left in the eighth after complaining of elbow soreness. Francona said the team will likely have an update on him Wednesday.

    MORE THAN A NAME

    Looking for bullpen help, the Indians signed veteran reliever Marc Rzepczynski to a minor league deal and assigned him to Triple-A Columbus. The left-hander previously pitched for Cleveland from 2013-15, appearing in 145 games.

    The club currently needs a lefty reliever with both Andrew Miller and Tyler Olson on the disabled list. Rzepczynski could be an option.

    ”It’s a guy we know,” Francona said. ”We’re down to one lefty right now, so it’s a guy that certainly could come here and help. He didn’t sign to stay in Triple-A.”

    Francona joked that he still has trouble spelling the lefty’s last name.

    ”I’ve got it in my phone: Z-E-P Zach Davies Jersey ,” he said.

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    White Sox: Renteria said OF Avisail Garcia (strained right hamstring) is progressing well on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Charlotte. Garcia’s status will be reassessed after he plays Tuesday and Wednesday. He’s been on the disabled list since May 24.

    Indians: OF Bradley Zimmer will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder. Zimmer felt discomfort while throwing after he initially strained the shoulder while doing drills after being sent to Columbus to work on his game. ”I don’t think he thought it was anything, and it just didn’t feel good. So, we’re going to go ahead and get him looked at,” Francona said.

    UP NEXT

    ike Clevinger will face the White Sox for the second straight start. He set a career high with 11 strikeouts and held Chicago to one run over seven innings last Thursday. Carlos Rodon will start for the White Sox.

    LAS VEGAS — With a surprising run to the Pacific Division title Authentic Vinny Curry Jersey , the expansion Vegas Golden Knights were the feel-good story of the regular season in the National Hockey League.

    Now the question is can they continue their storybook season in the Stanley Cup Playoffs? The Golden Knights (51-24-7) host the Los Angeles Kings (45-29-8) in the first game of their best-of-seven first round series on Wednesday night at T-Mobile Arena.

    Vegas will be playing a veteran Kings squad that has held up the hardware twice over the last seven seasons. But the Golden Knights have a goalie in Marc-Andre Fleury (29-13-4, 2.24 goals against average) who was a key performer on three Stanley Cup champions in Pittsburgh, including each of the last two seasons, and have other veterans like forward James Neal who made it to the finals last year with Nashville.

    Both will be counted on to provide the kind of leadership that will be necessary to advance in the playoffs.

    “It’s more intense,” Fleury said of playoff hockey. “Every little play matters. Every win matters. I think it makes the stakes higher. … It’s fun hockey. Fun to watch.”

    “Real excited,” Neal, who had 25 goals Matt Kemp Jersey , said. “We’ve worked all year to put ourselves in this position, especially with home ice advantage. I think this city and this rink is going to be pretty crazy.”

    Vegas finished 29-10-2 at home, where it sold out every contest. But it will be playing a Los Angeles team that split the season series and won both ends of a key back-to-back against the Golden Knights in late February, winning 3-2 in overtime at the Staples Center on a Dustin Brown power-play goal after Anze Kopitar tied it with 10.8 seconds remaining, and then coming back the next night at T-Mobile Arena for a convincing 4-1 victory.

    “I don’t even remember that,” Kings defenseman Drew Doughty told reporters. “That’s a long time ago already. I know we’re not thinking about those two games. We’re just thinking about the opportunity in front of us, and I know they’re not thinking about it either. Really has no impact on this series. It’s a whole new series.”

    The Golden Knights Eric Thames Jersey , who finished fifth in the NHL in scoring with an average of 3.3 goals per game, have five players with 20 or more goals, led by center William Karlsson’s 43, and will be playing a physical, hard-checking Kings’ team that ranked No. 1 in goals against (2.46) and penalty kill (85.0 percent) and has a goalie in Jonathan Quick (33-28-3, 2.40 GAA) who also has been the backbone of two Stanley Cup champions.

    “It’s about playing fast,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant Yovani Gallardo Jersey , who has rotated four lines all season, said. “We’ve talked about that all year long. When you play fast and you forecheck well, you’re going to get turnovers. People turn over the puck. … You have to force them to turn over the puck. If you give good players time to make plays, they’re going to make them. When we play fast and we play quick, we’re a good team and we get a lot of turnovers.”

    “They’ve been probably the fastest team all year, and teams have had a hard time handling that speed,” Brown Cheap Troy Apke Jersey , who has 28 goals, said. “We’ve got to find a way to limit their speed game. I think a lot of it comes from turnovers. They’re really quick in transition.”

    Another big key: just how much do the Golden Knights have left in the tank after their emotional roller-coaster ride of a season? Vegas, which was an eye-popping 27-9-2 on Jan. 2, sputtered down the stretch, going just 10-8-3 including an 8-3 home loss to New Jersey and also a 7-1 season-ending clunker at Calgary, a game that Fleury was pulled from after stopping just 12 of the 18 shots he faced.

    Doughty believes it comes down to “all the little things” to winning in the playoffs.

    “Blocking shots, throwing pucks at the net Cheap Jason Sanders Jersey ,” Doughty said. “(There are) a lot of crappy goals that go in during the playoffs. That’s just how it is.”

    HOUSTON — Just when the Houston Rockets‘ air of invincibility started to wane Cheap Jason McCourty Jersey , MVP frontrunner James Harden did what was necessary to restore order and right the Rockets’ formidable vessel.

    On the heels of uninspired efforts last weekend, including a 17-point loss at San Antonio on Sunday, the Rockets (63-15) reclaimed their rhythm on Tuesday with a 120-104 victory over the Washington Wizards at Toyota Center, the first of three home contests this week. Houston will host the Portland Trail Blazers on Thursday seeking a sweep of the four-game season series with the Blazers.

    Over the five games between the Rockets’ last win in Portland and their dispatching of the Wizards, Harden averaged a modest 23.8 points per game on 37.4 percent shooting Authentic Brian Allen Jersey , including a paltry 15 percent on 3-pointers. He rediscovered his shooting stroke against Washington, pouring in 38 points on just 18 shot attempts while converting 5 of 8 shots from behind the arc.

    “We understand we’ve got to change our mentality and get into playoff mode, and come out with some aggressiveness and kind of take control of the game in that first quarter,” Harden said.

    The Blazers (48-30) are in the position Houston occupied last weekend. Starting with a victory on Valentine’s Day at Phoenix, Portland reeled off 13 consecutive wins to essentially secure a postseason berth and garner attention as a playoff dark horse. But the Trail Blazers are just 4-4 since Cheap Nyheim Hines Jersey , with the Rockets snapping that streak in Portland on March 20. The Blazers have dropped games at Memphis and Dallas, two Western Conference bottom feeders, since, with their setback against the Mavericks on Tuesday reflecting their lagging defense of late.

    Portland owns a 107.2 defensive rating over its last eight games, a mark that ranks 16th in the league and represents a concerning drop for a defense that has ranked in the top 10 all season.

    “That was a bad loss for us Cheap Kendall Wright Jersey ,” Portland coach Terry Stotts said. “We didn’t do the things defensively (to win), particularly in the first half. We didn’t play with the urgency defensively to have an impact. Obviously, we didn’t shoot the ball well (10 of 40 on 3-pointers), but I think that’s kind of a mindset as well. No excuses. We didn’t play well and we need to play better.”

    The stop in Houston is the second on the Blazers’ four-game road swing with San Antonio and Denver, both scrapping to secure a postseason bid Fred Lynn Jersey , up next. The Trail Blazers will close the regular season at home against Utah in a game that could mean a great deal to the Jazz. After streaking its way to third place in the conference standings, Portland can ill afford to surrender that momentum against the teams it could potentially face in the opening round of the playoffs.

    “We’ve been a very, very good team for two or three months,” Stotts said. “But this game on the heels of losing at Memphis and our poor first half against Memphis at home (on April 1), I don’t know. We’ll watch the video Authentic Donte Jackson Jersey , but I don’t know if it’s a mindset or not. But these last (few games), it’s not going to be easy the rest of the way. So, we’ve got to understand that.”

    Trail Blazers All-Star guard Damian Lillard rolled his left ankle at Dallas and his status against the Rockets is questionable.

    Oklahoma City Thunder forward Carmelo Anthony plans to opt in and take the $28 million he is due next season.

    The New York Times first reported the 34-year-old Anthony’s decision to bypass the chance to become a free agent. A person with knowledge of details confirmed Anthony’s choice to The Associated Press on Friday night. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the situation publicly.

    The Thunder traded for Anthony and Paul George to join Russell Westbrook before last season Authentic Kalen Ballage Jersey , moves that gave them high hopes of challenging Golden State in the West. It didn’t work out as planned.

    The 34-year-old Anthony had been the headliner his entire career – he’s 19th in NBA history with 25,417 points – but he was more of a catch-and-shoot scorer last season instead of the isolation specialist he had always been. He averaged 16.2 points per game, but struggled at times in his new role. His playing time dwindled in the playoffs and he wasn’t happy. In Game 6 of the first-round playoff series against Utah that ended Oklahoma City’s season Aaron Hicks Jersey , he played fewer minutes than backup Jerami Grant.

    It wasn’t entirely clear if Anthony would opt in. After the season, he said he prefers to play with the ball in his hands more and said coming off the bench is ”out of the question.”

    ”So it’s something I really have to think about, if I really want to be this type of player Jimmy Wynn Jersey , finish out my career as this type of player, knowing that I have so much left in the tank and I bring so much to the game of basketball,” he said.

    Despite his confidence Authentic B.J. Hill Jersey , the 10-time All-Star posted career lows in scoring average and field goal percentage last season. Thunder general manager Sam Presti said at the end of the season that he doesn’t expect Anthony’s role to change.

    ”I give him an enormous amount of credit for the fact that he put both feet in,” Presti said. ”I personally think he did an excellent job in his first year transitioning his game, working to becoming more of an off-the-ballplayer Cheap Phillip Gaines Jersey , being more reliant on other people to generate his offense, and sacrificing a lot.

    The Seattle Mariners have made a habit this year of mounting comebacks Bob Uecker Jersey , winning by one run and prevailing in extra innings.

    They combined all three of those traits in a rousing, drama-filled matchup with the Baltimore Orioles.

    Denard Span hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the 11th inning after Kyle Seager delivered a two-run homer in the ninth, and the Mariners pulled out an 8-7 victory Wednesday night.

    Playing without injured Nelson Cruz for a second straight game, Seattle got a home run from Ryon Healy and collected 14 hits while improving its record in extra innings to 7-0.

    It was the Mariners’ major league-leading 25th one-run victory, and it marked the 16th comeback win in which they have taken the lead in the seventh inning or later.

    In this one, Seattle gave up a deflating three-run homer to Chris Davis in the eighth inning before rallying.

    ”We’ve had some great wins this year. We’ve done a lot of this at home,” manager Scott Servais said. ”To do this on the road, after giving up the big home run in the eighth inning Cheap Orlando Brown Jr. Jersey , it’s how we’re wired. We play all 27 outs, guys don’t quit. They figure out and find a way.”

    The Mariners came to town having lost six of seven. Now, after winning three straight over the lowly Orioles, they can complete the first four-game road sweep of Baltimore in franchise history.

    Seattle has never swept a two-game series in Baltimore, and its last three-game sweep of the Orioles on the road was in 2007.

    Cruz has been bothered by a sore lower back, but the Mariners have done just fine without him.

    Jean Segura led off the 11th with a double against Mychal Givens (0-5), and Span drove in the go-ahead run with a deep fly to center off Donnie Hart.

    Chasen Bradford (5-0) worked the 10th and Edwin Diaz got three outs for his major league-leading 30th save, a club record before the All-Star break. He has earned the save in each game of this series.

    ”We have stepped up and started playing great baseball Nolan Ryan Jersey ,” Diaz said. ”Our defense, hitting and pitching are all doing great. We’re in a good moment right now.”

    The Orioles trailed 5-4 in the eighth inning before Davis interrupted his season-long slump with a shot off Alex Colome. The drive, on a 3-1 pitch, soared onto Eutaw Street far beyond the right-field wall.

    Davis entered the game with a .147 batting average, and on Friday returned from an eight-game hiatus in which he worked to get his swing back. This was his second home run since coming back, and it produced a rare feel-good moment for a struggling team and its belabored slugger.

    Then, in the Seattle ninth, Mitch Haniger singled off Zach Britton and Seager delivered his 15th home run and second in two nights.

    Britton Whit Merrifield Jersey , who has pitched in only eight games this season after returning from surgery on a torn Achilles tendon, said, ”I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. I didn’t want it to be like this, but it is what it is and I’ve just got to push through it.”

    Much earlier, Seattle made up deficits of 2-0 and 4-2 to take a 5-4 lead in the fifth inning against Alex Cobb.

    Baltimore has lost four in a row overall and 14 of 15 at home.

    DO THE HUSTLE

    Orioles shortstop Manny Machado heard some boos Tuesday night when he trotted to first base after hitting into a 4-6-3 double play.

    Manager Buck Showalter promised the matter would be addressed, and he did so on Wednesday.

    ”He’s better than that,” Showalter said. ”It’s a really bad presentation, and he knows that. The toughest thing about it is that it’s a poor presentation of what he’s really about.”

    ALL-STAR ENDORSEMENT

    Machado leads AL shortstops in fan voting for the All-Star Game Authentic Logan Cooke Jersey , but Servais believes Jean Segura is playing well enough to be a backup.

    ”There are a lot of good shortstops out there, but our guy ranks top five in almost every statistical category,” Servais insisted.

    Segura is batting .338 with 44 RBIs. He’s got nine errors but has displayed exceptional range.

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    Mariners: Servais says Cruz ”is moving in the right direction” and could return Thursday.

    Orioles: RHP Darren O’Day (hamstring) and OF Craig Gentry (rib fracture) were placed on the 10-day disabled list.

    UP NEXT

    Mariners: Mike Leake (8-4, 4.11 ERA) gets his 17th start in the series finale.

    Orioles: Recalled from Triple-A Norfolk on Wednesday, Jimmy Yacabonis will make his first major league start Thursday in place of injured Dylan Bundy.

    The Detroit Red Wings are bringing coach Jeff Blashill for a fourth season Chad Pinder Jersey , sticking with him while they rebuild after missing the postseason for the second year in a row.

    ”I’m big on experience,” Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said after announcing the decision on Tuesday.

    Detroit extended its postseason streak to 25 years in 2016 during Blashill’s debut season as an NHL coach. The Red Wings have fallen short since then and are 104-105-37 in three seasons under Blashill, who won one playoff game two years ago. Holland Cheap Kolton Miller Jersey , who has been Detroit’s GM since 1997 and recently agreed to a two-year contract extension, decided to stay with Blashill as the Red Wings look for the right mix of youth and experience to get back in the mix in the Eastern Conference.

    ”I’m certainly glad to still be the coach of the Detroit Red Wings. It’s a job I love,” Blashill said. ”I’m excited about moving this franchise … where everybody wants it.”

    The Detroit native will coach the U.S. team at the IIHF World Hockey Championship – for the second straight year – next month in Denmark.

    The Red Wings hired Blashill in 2015 after Mike Babcock’s contract expired and the Toronto Maple Leafs gave him a $50 million Cheap Daniel Kilgore Jersey , eight-year contract. Blashill was on Babcock’s bench in Detroit as an assistant during the 2011-12 season. He went on to coach the Grand Rapids Griffins, leading the Red Wings’ American Hockey League affiliate for three successful seasons. Blashill also led Western Michigan University for one season, helping the Broncos reach the CCHA championship game for the first time since 1986.

    ”He’s gotten better Andy Pettitte Jersey ,” Detroit center Dylan Larkin said. ”That sounds different to say about a coach. He has become more mature. … He has a good grasp of the room.”

    The first round is over. The U.S. is halfway to the Basketball World Cup.

    The Americans wrapped up the first stage of the new qualifying format Sunday by beating Cuba 93-62 Jordy Mercer Jersey , bouncing back from a loss in Mexico on Thursday to finish alone atop their group at 5-1.

    Using G League players instead of the NBA stars they’ve been relying on to dominate for more than a decade, the Americans lost a game at the national team level for the first time since 2006 and were pushed a couple other times in the new qualifying format in which teams play home-and-away games against regional rivals.

    They expect things to be just as difficult in the second round, which begins in September.

    ”We have really good players that are playing right now. We just don’t know who is going to be available Cheap JK Scott Jersey ,” coach Jeff Van Gundy said. ”But the point is we have to play better because the competition does get better.”

    Reggie Hearn and Xavier Munford each scored 16 points for the Americans in their first game in Havana since 1991, when they earned a bronze medal in the Pan Am Games with a team that included Duke stars Christian Laettner and Grant Hill.

    NBA players were introduced in the Olympics the next year and the Americans have almost always been able to count on a talent advantage since. But they shuttled in players from the G League for all three windows of games in the first round, and had two tough victories over Puerto Rico before the loss in Mexico City.

    ”We had lots of different guys participate and so the weakness is that we had a constant turnover of players Masahiro Tanaka Jersey ,” Van Gundy said. ”But our strength is our defense and our 3-point shooting.”

    Cuba led 28-24 after the first quarter Sunday before the U.S. quickly seized control with a 19-1 run to start the second.

    The Americans plan to continue using G League players in the second round, when they move into a group that will feature Argentina, Uruguay and Panama Youth Albert Wilson Jersey , along with Puerto Rico and Mexico. The first-round record carries over, and the Americans will have to finish in the top three of that group or be the best fourth-place finisher from the Americas to qualify for the 2019 World Cup in China.

    That tournament will serve as a qualifier for the 2020 Olympics.

    After the Capitals scored early Cheap Saquon Barkley Jersey , the Penguins scored often to stun their rivals with yet another comeback.

    Patric Hornqvist, Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel scored in a 4:49 span to help Pittsburgh erase a two-goal deficit in the third period and the Penguins beat Washington 3-2 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the second-round series.

    Showing no panic from allowing a goal to Evgeny Kuznetsov 17 seconds into the game and another to Alex Ovechkin 28 seconds into the third period, the back-to-back defending Stanley Cup champions took another series lead in typical Penguins fashion.

    Playing without injured forwards Evgeni Malkin and Carl Hagelin, Pittsburgh naturally fed off Crosby, who had a goal and an assist.

    ”Right from Sid, he led the way for us and it’s right down the lineup,” said Guentzel, who had a goal and two assists and leads the playoffs with 16 points. ”You can’t get down. There’s going to be highs and lows throughout the whole series. You’ve got to stick with it to the end and we were happy to get three and end up winning the game.”

    Matt Murray stopped 32 of 34 shots Youth Jalyn Holmes Jersey , keeping the Penguins in the game and maintaining the lead late with a sprawling stick save on Brett Connolly with 2:30 left. Unsure of what would happen at the other end of the rink with Braden Holtby dialed in, Murray could only keep the puck out as much as possible after allowing the early-period goals to Kuznetsov and Ovechkin.

    Murray denied Michal Kempny from point-blank range and kept the puck out from a hard-charging Devante Smith-Pelly early and missed no opportunity to give the Penguins the impressive stop when they needed it.

    ”I thought he was locked in all night long,” coach Mike Sullivan said. ”He made some big saves for us, especially when they were pressing down the stretch there. … When you get those types of saves, it’s easy to play with some confidence in front of him.”

    Murray couldn’t predict a furious comeback, but he wasn’t shocked, either. Not after Pittsburgh has won nine consecutive playoff series dating to 2016, including two against these Capitals.

    ”There’s going to be good things that happen out there and there’s going to be bad things that happen out there Youth Danny Shelton Jersey ,” Murray said. ”It’s about how you respond. We did a good job of that.”

    The Capitals gave the Penguins a couple of solid punches in the series opener but didn’t respond well when some bounces went against them early in the third. A deflection goal by Hornqvist, a puck that went off Ovechkin’s stick to Crosby and then a redirection by Guentzel took the air out of the building and ruined a strong start by Holtby.

    ”Obviously, some things we’d like to work on,” said Holtby, who stopped all 17 shots through two periods before allowing three on eight in the third. ”Same time, their goals they scored, they were kind of strange plays, especially the last one. It was one of those that’s just a weird bounce.”

    Washington blew a two-goal lead for the fourth time in seven games in these playoffs Cheap Rick Leonard Jersey , but players felt they handled this better than situations in the first round against Columbus.

    ”Those three shifts, they score,” said Kuznetsov, whose goal was the second-fastest in Capitals playoff history. ”I feel like they got momentum, and then they score again and again.”

    As even as the play was, a handful of mistakes were enough to put the Penguins up going into Game 2 Sunday afternoon. Sullivan already sees opportunities to cut down on chances against, and his players think they can be better as the series goes on.

    ”It’s one game, we did some good things Mickey Mantle Jersey ,” Crosby said. ”I think in any playoff series, it’s just about getting better with every game.”

    NOTES: The Capitals have killed 18 consecutive penalties dating to Game 2 against Columbus. .., Malkin skated Thursday morning with teammates, while Hagelin did not make the trip. Malkin could be an option for Game 2 if his apparent leg injury has healed enough.

    BOSTON — Having survived to play at least one more game Cheap Taven Bryan Jersey , the Philadelphia 76ers continue to battle history when they visit the Boston Celtics on Wednesday night.

    You have likely heard this all before: No team has ever come from down 0-3 to win an NBA playoff series, with teams going 129-0 when leading 3-0.

    More history? The Celtics are 36-0 all-time when taking at least a 2-0 lead in a series.

    And the Sixers/Warriors/Nationals are 0-14 all-time when dropping the first two games of a series.

    Oh, and the Celtics are 6-0 at home in the playoffs this season.

    Still, the insertion of T.J. McConnell into the starting lineup provided a spark and the Sixers stayed alive in a convincing victory in Philadelphia Monday night.

    “Got to give a lot of credit to T.J. … He came in and he changed everything,” Joel Embiid said after McConnell played 39 minutes and scored a career-high 19 points and added seven rebounds and five assists in only his second start of the season.

    Philly fans chanted “T.J., T.J.” for the guard, who said, “It was a pretty special moment, but I was trying to do anything I could to get us a win. I think we have the best fans in the NBA. They’ve been here through the dark times Kenta Maeda Jersey , and they’ve certainly been here on our rise. I just appreciate them, and I know we all do.”

    Said Celtics coach Brad Stevens: “He was great. He was a tough guy. He’s a heck of a basketball player, and obviously, we didn’t do a great job of defending him and his impact was tremendous.”

    The injury-ravaged Celtics suffered another one in the game, with Shane Larkin injuring his left shoulder running into the wall known as Embiid. Stevens said Tuesday he won’t know until Wednesday’s shootaround whether he’ll have his backup guard.

    The Celtics were sloppy as their four-game playoff winning streak came to an end.

    “I mean, obviously, what did we end up with? Fifteen turnovers,” Stevens said after the game. “The offensive rebounds were enormous for them, just the extra possessions. Neither team shot it great Cheap Antonio Callaway Jersey , but they were really good tonight.”

    Celtics guard Terry Rozier, who has emerged as a star late in the season and into the playoffs with Kyrie Irving out for the year, has become a quote machine in these playoffs.

    Asked after Game 4 what he learned from the loss, Rozier, who has had verbal battles with Eric Bledsoe and Embiid in the playoffs, said, “Bleep, win the next one.”

    As far as Game 5, Rozier said Authentic Baker Mayfield Jersey , “I feel like we just have to come out, be aggressive and try to make them quit.”

    Marcus Smart, clearly playing through some pain in his surgically repaired right thumb, agreed.

    “We’re pitbulls. It’s a dog fight and we’re going straight for the neck,” he said.

    Regardless of how this comes out, count Stevens among those singing the praises of Brown as a coach.

    “I think the part that is most difficult in this league is when you’re not having success is maintaining a joy and desire to continue to work for yourself and your team,” Stevens said. “I don’t think anybody has done it better than Brett, and the way that he’s led. You can see it in the way (the Sixers) play. You can see it in the way they played before this year.

    “Obviously, with more guys available now Jay Buhner Jersey , with Embiid and (Ben) Simmons healthy, and now all the older guys they’ve added, you can see the joy with which they play. Everybody quote “loves” basketball. That gets tested in an 82-game season, and if it’s extended. And it really gets tested if you’re not having success. That’s hard. I have an unbelievable amount of admiration for Brett anyways, but the way in which he’s created a culture in which they find joy is pretty special.”

    Boston’s Jayson Tatum became the first Celtic to notch six straight 20-plus-point playoff games since Paul Pierce in 2009. He joined David Robinson, Billy Knight and Donovan Mitchell as the only NBA rookies to achieve the feat since 1975. Utah’s Mitchell scored 20 or more in seven straight games earlier this postseason.

    Marco Gonzales was looking for some retribution against the Kansas City Royals.

    Gonzales (8-5) pitched a six-hitter for his first career complete game in the Seattle Mariners‘ 4-1 victory on Friday. The left-hander struck out seven and didn’t issue a walk while throwing just 96 pitches.

    ”My last outing against these guys didn’t go great – my second start of the year Youth Martinas Rankin Jersey , I think – so I was looking for some payback, too. So I was a little more amped than usual,” Gonzales said.

    Mitch Haniger and Mike Zunino homered for Seattle.

    Gonzales had been chased after just 2 1/3 innings of what became a 10-0 loss on April 9, but Friday’s start was much different. Gonzalez Reynaldo Lopez Jersey , who’d never taken a game into the eighth inning until going 7 1/3 innings against Tampa Bay earlier this month, didn’t need more than 13 pitches to finish any inning against the Royals.

    ”He has a lot of confidence right now because everything that’s happened to him this year, he’s earned,” Mariners manager Scott Servais said.

    Whit Merrifield singled to lead off the game and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Rosell Herrera. Gonzales picked Merrifield off second base to erase the baserunner and would retire nine straight batters before running into a spot of trouble in the fourth.

    Herrera doubled off the glove of left fielder Denard Span with one out. An infield single from Mike Moustakas put runners on the corners Kenley Jansen Jersey , but Gonzales induced an inning-ending double play from Salvador Perez to keep the Royals off the board.

    ”The way that we’ve been playing and the fun that we’ve been having, I can’t wait for my fifth day to come,” Gonzales said. ”To be able to go out there and contribute in a positive way and have these guys rally behind you is pretty incredible.”

    Royals starter Ian Kennedy (1-8) retired the first 10 batters he faced before running into trouble in the fourth. Jean Segura reached on an infield single to give Seattle its first baserunner of the game. Haniger followed with a two-run blast over the center-field wall to give the Mariners a 2-0 lead.

    After fouling off three straight pitches with a 2-2 count, Zunino blasted a solo home run two rows from the top of the upper deck in left field to extend the Mariners’ lead to 3-0 in the fifth.

    Kennedy left after five innings due to tightness in his left side that surfaced on the last pitch to Zunino.

    ”I felt it grab Authentic Anthony Miller Jersey ,” Kennedy said. ”And then the rest of the inning it stayed tight. The last couple pitches I was compensating for it, so I knew … the right thing to do is to say something.”

    Segura added a two-out RBI single in the seventh inning off Brandon Maurer to give Seattle a 4-0 advantage.

    Adalberto Mondesi doubled to open the ninth and Moustakas delivered a two-out single to center field to drive home the only run of the game for the Royals.

    BONIFACIO RETURNS

    Outfielder Jorge Bonifacio was recalled and back in the lineup for the Royals on Friday after completing an 80-game suspension for testing positive for a performance-enhancing drug. Bonifacio was suspended in March after testing positive for Boldenone, which is an anabolic androgenic steroid. Bonifacio started the game in left field and went 0 for 3 with a strikeout. He hit .255 with 17 home runs and 40 RBIs in 113 games as a rookie in 2017. OF Ryan Goins was designated for assignment on Thursday to clear a roster spot. ”It was a tough time down there in Arizona. But I learned from it. It’s never going to happen again,” Bonifacio said.

    TRAINER’S ROOM

    Royals: C Perez was back in the lineup after exiting Wednesday’s game in Milwaukee in the ninth inning after taking a foul ball off his right leg.

    Mariners: 3B Kyle Seager was back in the lineup after making only a pinch-hit appearance in Baltimore on Sunday. Seager has an ”avulsion fracture” in his big toe and was given the day off in the field to rest. It’s not expected to require a disabled list stint and Seager is planning to play through the injury.

    UP NEXT

    Royals: RHP Jason Hammel (2-9) will make his 17th start of the season on Saturday. Hammel has lost four straight starts and has allowed at least three earned runs in three of the four outings.

    Mariners: RHP Felix Hernandez (7-6) will take the hill for the 18th time this season as he looks to continue a run of strong starts. After a rough first two months of the season Houston Astros Jersey , Hernandez has allowed just one earned run in three of his five starts in June.

    NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Rangers fired coach Alain Vigneault hours after they missed the playoffs for the first time since 2010.

    General manager Jeff Gorton announced the firing Saturday night, a full day before the end of the NHL regular season but long after New York’s playoff hopes were gone.

    The Rangers will begin searching for his replacement immediately.

    The Rangers made the playoffs in four of Vigneault’s five seasons as coach, including a 2014 trip to the Stanley Cup Final. They went 226-147-37 in the regular season under Vigneault, who is third in regular-season and playoff wins in franchise history.

    New York’s front office decided in the middle of this season to go young Gary Sanchez Jersey , sell at the trade deadline and begin a rebuilding process in the hopes of becoming a title contender again.

    GOLF

    AUGUSTA, Ga. (AP) – Patrick Reed won his first major championship with a thrilling one-shot victory over Rickie Fowler at the Masters.

    Reed pulled ahead of Jordan Spieth with an 8-foot birdie putt at the 14th hole Sunday, saved par with a 6-foot putt at No. 17 and pulled off a testy two-putt at the final hole to win with a 1-under 71. His total was a 15-under 273.

    Fowler made quite a run at his first major title, making six birdies over the final 11 holes for a closing 67.

    It wasn’t quite enough.

    Spieth began the day nine shots behind and turned in one of the greatest final rounds in Masters history with an 8-over 64. But a disappointing bogey at the last hole, when his tee shot struck a limb, ended his hopes of improbably catching Reed.

    Rory McIlroy went into the round three shots off the lead, in good position to make a run at the career Grand Slam. But he stumbled to a 74 and finished six shots behind Reed.

    ANAHEIM Brad Ziegler Jersey , Calif. (AP) – Shohei Ohtani retired the Oakland Athletics’ first 19 batters and yielded one hit over seven shutout innings in his home pitching debut, leading the Los Angeles Angels to a 6-1 victory Sunday.

    Marcus Semien’s clean one-out single to left broke up Ohtani’s bid for a perfect game, and the two-way Japanese sensation finished the inning for a bravura performance with 12 strikeouts.

    Ohtani (2-0) struck out the side twice during the latest feat in a series of early-season superlatives by the 23-year-old Japanese prodigy.

    He won his pitching debut in Oakland last weekend with six strong innings. He homered in three consecutive games in Anaheim between starts in his attempt to become the first regular two-way player in decades.

    He was sharp from the beginning on a gorgeous day in Orange County, striking out the side in the first inning on 15 pitches while mixing 99 mph heat with 80 mph splitters and precipitous curveballs.

    Ohtani struck out the side again in the fifth inning, and he fanned every Oakland batter except Jonathan Lucroy at least once.

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Hornets owner Michael Jordan has turned to a fellow former North Carolina Tar Heel with a strong NBA track record to help turn around his struggling franchise.

    Charlotte hired Mitch Kupchak as president of basketball operations and general manager Sunday, giving him full control of day-to-day operations. Jordan called Kupchak a ”proven winner” in a statement.

    One of Kupchak’s first decisions will be whether or not to bring back coach Steve Clifford, whose contract expires after the 2019 season.

    Kupchak brings more than 30 years of NBA front office experience to Charlotte, including 17 seasons as a general manager with the Lakers.

    Shea Theodore opted for a simple approach on his shootout attempt.

    Good call.

    Theodore scored in the tiebreaker to give the Vegas Golden Knights a 5-4 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

    Theodore Youth Kalen Ballage Jersey , the fourth Vegas shooter, beat Jacob Markstrom on a backhand. The 26-year-old defenseman, who is from the Vancouver suburb of Langley, improved to 2 for 2 on shootouts.

    ”Sometimes when you overthink it the pucks ends up in going in the corner,” he said. ”I just tried to make a fake and tried to catch him biting on it.”

    It was the first game for longtime Vancouver stars Daniel and Henrik Sedin since announcing Monday they are retiring after Saturday’s season finale in Edmonton. In the third period Youth Dorian O'Daniel Jersey , the brothers stood at the bench and waved to the crowd who gave them a standing ovation. Vegas players banged their sticks on the ice.

    ”It was fun to be part of it,” Daniel Sedin said. ”It takes us back to a playoff atmosphere. It was fun to be part of that again.

    ”It’s been a while since this building has been this exciting to play in. It’s a great feeling.”

    Bo Horvat, Brandon Sutter and Nikolay Goldobin, with his second of the game, scored in the third period as the Canucks erased a three-goal deficit. Goldobin tied the game at 10:53 when an innocent-looking tip squirted past Vegas goalie Malcom Subban.

    ”We had good control of the game … and fell asleep a little bit Youth Keke Coutee Jersey ,” Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said.

    Subban, who finished with 21 saves, wasn’t happy.

    ”You never want to win that way,” he said. ”You want to shut the door and not lose focus. I felt I lost focus there a little bit and they capitalized on it.”

    Vancouver’s Jake Virtanen was called for hooking 15 seconds into overtime. Theodore scored on the power play, but the goal was overturned because of goaltender interference.

    Brandon Pirri led Vegas with two goals in his first NHL game of the season. William Karlsson had a goal and two assists and Tomas Tatar also scored for the first-year Knights Youth Danny Shelton Jersey , who clinched the top spot in the Pacific Division on Saturday.

    Daniel Sedin earned an assist on Horvat’s power-play goal for the Canucks, who had won four in a row. He also hit a post in the shootout. Henrik Sedin also missed in the shootout.
