Ottawa Senators owner Eugene Melnyk would like to see Bryan Murray raise the Stanley Cup as the clubs general manager. Jessie Bates III Jersey . After extending Murrays contract through the 2015-16 season, Melnyk also extended that window and put something of a timer on that ultimate goal. "We think that we have all the core group in place," Melnyk said on a conference call Monday. "I think if we were on the same trajectory as we have been over the last few years, that its ultimately going to lead to a championship-type team." Murray, who was given the additional title of president of hockey operations, agreed to serve as an adviser for two seasons after his tenure as general manager is up. After building this group over the past six-plus seasons, he hopes not to have to wait too long for a title. "I think obviously the objective is to do it when Im here as a general manager," Murray said. "The core we have is a very good core, its young." And Murray knows that inexperience can lead to growing pains. The Senators struggled for much of the first half of this season, going 14-17-7 before a recent run put them within two points of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Success made working out an extension for Murray easier because Melnyk wanted to negotiate during an "upswing" and "ensure that nobody ever would think that this was some kind of knee-jerk reaction to what was not an optimal beginning to the season." The timing seemingly had more to do with the departure of assistant GM Tim Murray, Bryans nephew, who was hired as the Buffalo Sabres head man last week. In addition to extending Murray, the Senators promoted Pierre Dorion and Randy Lee to assistant general managers. Dorion, who was already in charge of scouting and drafting, takes on contract-negotiation duties, while Lee, who was in charge of player development, also becomes GM of Ottawas AHL affiliate in Binghamton. "Its a great day for all of us going forward," Murray said. More moves could be coming down the line to bolster the hockey operations department, though not on the management side. Murray said the Senators could perhaps use "another set of eyes" in the scouting department. "We lost a pretty good evaluator in Tim, so do we have enough?" Murray said. "I believe we do for now. If we have to do something in the future because of other coverage, then well address it at that time." For now, Murray can go about his job with some extra security. Hes considering moves before the trade deadline to bolster Ottawas playoff hopes, and he and his assistants will have some work to do on current contracts. "We understand that weve got about five players that are important parts of the present team that we have to make a decision on and do a contract for," he said. "Were kind of setting ourselves up to do that." Winger Milan Michalek and defenceman Chris Phillips are set to be unrestricted free agents this summer, while goaltender Robin Lehner will be a restricted free agent. Captain Jason Spezza, winger Bobby Ryan and defenceman Marc Methot are up in the summer of 2015. "As we go forward over the next few months well make contact with the agents and see in a couple cases if we can extend them," Murray said without naming names. "A couple of them we have to wait until July 1. But internally were making those decisions and well be in the best possible position, I believe to do (it), and then it will be up to the players agent to deal with us." Spezza and Ryans deals end a year before Murrays. Melnyk and Murray have discussed potential succession plans, but Monday wasnt the time they wanted to discuss that inevitability. "We just have to now kind of over the next little while evaluate people and decide what may happen," Murray said. "But thats a little ways down the road, and I hope we have a lot of success between now and that decision being made." Malik Jefferson Jersey .ca!

The South Africa international, who rejoined the club last month on loan from Tottenham, opened the scoring in the sixth minute with a powerful shot into the roof of the net.VANCOUVER -- Two unheralded Saskatchewan players spoiled the B.C. Lions guaranteed win night Sunday. Backup quarterback Tino Sunseris first CFL career touchdown pass to reserve offensive lineman-turned-tight-end Dan Clark sparked the Saskatchewan Roughriders to a comeback 20-16 victory over the Lions. "For me to get the first one, it was really special," said Sunseri. "And, you have to give a lot of credit to the offensive line and Dan Clark for getting open on the certain play and blocking and all that. It was pretty exciting." As a result, the 33,196 fans who attended Sundays game will receive a free ticket to a future game courtesty of B.C. president Dennis Skulsky, who promised a Lions victory to the biggest crowd of the season at B.C. Place Stadium, which included many Riders supporters. The Riders (6-2) posted their fifth straight win and are now tied for second place with Winnipeg in the ultra-competitive West Division. The Lions (5-4) fell to fifth. The Riders triumphed after they were forced to play the second half with rarely used backup Sunseri, a 25-year-old Pittsburgh native who is in his second season with the Riders, at the helm. After playing the entire first half, starter Darian Durant was sidelined with a hand injury that, he said afterwards, will be further evaluated upon the teams return to Regina. "I never want (Durant) to get hurt, but we can all go in under a certain circumstance," said Sunseri, a University of Pittsburgh product who had never been to Canada before signing with the Riders on short notice a few days before training camp in 2013. "Everyone was coming up to me on the sidelines and saying that they had my back and everything like that. So I knew, with the work that we put in during the week, that we were ready for it." The game was decided on the final play of the third quarter. With the Riders scrimmaging from the B.C. one-yard line, Clark lined up as an eligible receiver at tight end and got his hands on a high Sunseri pass in the end zone and held on, while falling backward. It was the second CFL touchdown for Clark, a 26-year-old Regina native who scored one on a similar play in his rookie 2013 season. "The play was called and I knew I just had to make the play and catch the ball," said Clark, who is usually a backup offensive guard. The TD and Chris Milos convert gave the Roughriders their first lead of the game and put them ahead to stay before Josh Bartels punt single in the fourth quarter rounded out the scoring. "With this atmosphere and the way the crowd was for this team, (the win) is huge for this team," said Clark. The Roughriders prevailed after both teams lost their starting quarterbacks to injuries. Durant completed 9 of 15 passes for 104 yards, but watched the rest of the game in uniform from the sidelines while sporting a brace on his right throwing hand. Sunseri entered the game having made only seven pass attempts this season. But he still helped the Riders rally from a 13-9 first-half deficit. Sunseri completed 8 of 13 passes for 86 yards and the one touchdown. B.C. starter Kevin Glenn left the gamme with an undisclosed injury in the fourth quarter and was replaced by Travis Lulay, the teams usual starter who has been on a gradual-playing-time program in recent weeks following off-season shoulder surgery. Andrew Billings Bengals Jersey. "Obviously, you knew that this game was going to be won and lost on the field - and they earned the win tonight," said Lulay, when asked how the Lions felt about Skulskys spoiled promise. Glenn completed 15 of 21 passes for 146 yards while Lulay went 4 for 8 for 27 yards. Lulays last-second hail-mary attempt fell well short. After rushing for 186 yards in a win in Regina earlier this season, the Lions only managed 56 total rushing yards Sunday. Andrew Harris, who entered the weekend first in the league in yards from scrimmage had only 11 yards on eight carries upon return from a one-game injury absence due to a sore ankle. "That was a big difference from the game that we played in Saskatchewan," said Lulay. "We moved the ball effectively there. But, tonight, we couldnt consistently run the football, especially in the first half." The Lions built an early lead with large help from returner Tim Brown, whose spot in the B.C. lineup was uncertain earlier in the week because of the Canadian and import player ratio. He returned the opening kick-off 68 yards to the Saskatchewan 50-yard line to set up a Paul McCallum 38-yard field goal just two and a half minutes into the game. But, despite holding an early 13-3 lead, B.C. never scored an offensive touchdown and had to settle for three McCallum field goals for their other points. Milos four field goals accounted for the rest of Saskatchewans scoring. While the Riders generally downplayed the spoiling B.C.s guaranteed win, Saskatchewan defensive lineman Ricky Foley, a former Lion, took satisfaction from it. "Were still (defending Grey Cup champs) until somebody beats us," said Foley. "Dont mess with the champs." Notes - The game was delayed for several minutes after Saskatchewans Scott McHenry was injured while tackling Stefan Logan on a punt return. A Roughriders spokesman said McHenry was taken to hospital for precautionary reasons after he went to the dressing room holding the back of his neck. à McCallums second field goal of the game, a 16-yarder in the second quarter, moved him into second place all-time in the CFL in field goals made, surpassing former Calgary Stampeder and Lion Mark McLoughlin.
