LIVERPOOL, N.S. -- Manitobas Braden Calvert is one victory away from winning the Canadian junior mens curling championship. Calverts team from Winnipeg — third Kyle Kurz, second Lucas Van Den Bosch, lead Brendan Wilson and coach Tom Clasper — clinched first place in the round-robin and a bye to Sundays gold-medal game with a 5-4 win over Albertas Carter Lautner on Wednesday. With the victory, Manitoba improved to 8-0 and gained the necessary tiebreaker advantages to clinch first place and the bye to the final. "Thats a pretty neat feeling," said Calvert, whose team defeated reigning Canadian junior mens champ Matt Dunstone in the Manitoba final. "The boys have played so well in front of me; they just made my job so easy all week." Now, the issue becomes how to deal with nearly four full days of thinking about the final, with two round-robin games to play and a day off on Saturday. "I think our team is great at staying loose and trying to have fun all the time," said Calvert with a smile. "I think well be OK that way. We brought a PS3 and NHL14, so well be pretty busy at that. Well hopefully be able to take our minds off it a little bit." In other mens championship pool games, New Brunswicks Rene Comeau (6-2) turned back Saskatchewans Tyler Hartung (5-3); B.C.s Cameron de Jong (4-4) shaded Ontarios Ryan McCrady (5-3) 4-3; and Nova Scotias Robert Mayhew (5-3) doubled Northern Ontarios Tanner Horgan (5-3) 10-5. In womens championship pool play, Albertas Kelsey Rocque suffered her first loss after seven straight wins, bowing 6-3 to Nova Scotias Mary Fay (6-2); B.C.s Kalia Van Osch (6-2) doubled Ontarios Molly Greenwood (5-3) 4-2; and Manitobas Meaghan Brezden (5-3) beat Saskatchewans Kristen Streifel (4-4) 7-6.

There is no argument that the line of Pacioretty, David Desharnais and Thomas Vanek was one of the hottest in the NHL leading into the post-season, and they did combine for three goals and seven points, but it was the depth of all four lines that helped propel Montreal. http://www.cheapredskinslockroom.com/AUT...EDSKINS-JERSEY/.

With Peyton Manning mulling retirement, Brock Osweiler might be in that same situation in Denver.Or he might be holding a clipboard again next fall.As GM John Elway looks for a new head coach after parting ways with John Fox, he said he knows the candidates will want to know Mannings intentions. But hes asked his quarterback not to make a rash decision and to take a month or so to clear his head.So the contenders Elway is interviewing this weekend — Vance Joseph on Friday and Gary Kubiak on Sunday — wont know if theyd be taking over an offence run by the five-time MVP or a QB whose next NFL start will be his first.There is no question the candidates are going to want to know where Peyton is in his return-or-retire determination, Elway said. Im going to say the same thing Im telling you all right now: We dont know exactly what hes going to do. Well just to have to wait and see and well go from there.Thats the same slant Osweiler is taking.I will approach this off-season the same exact way whether he comes back or doesnt come back, Osweiler said. And regardless of that situation, I truly believe if you work hard, you prepare hard, you dont need to get ready for anything new. Ive worked hard, Ive prepared every single week like Im the starter. So moving forward, none of that will change.Elway likes what he hears from — and sees in — Osweiler, the 6-foot-8 passer he selected in the second round of the 2012 draft out of Arizona State.Brock has made that progress that you would hope he would make, Elway said. Whats difficult is he hasnt gotten a lot of playing time. When that time comes, well see where he is. (But) the training that hes gotten up to this point is second to none.If Manning retires, that would free up $19 millionn over each of the next two seasons and allow the Broncos to really see what they have in Osweiler, who was mostly a backup in college, too.dddddddddddd He started just one season for the Sun Devils.Osweiler mopped up four games this season and threw his first career touchdown pass against Oakland last month.No matter whos under centre, the offence figures to get a makeover under a new coach.Elway kicked off a busy weekend of interviews by meeting Friday with Joseph, the Bengals defensive backs coach who played at Colorado, where he was a backup QB and DB for the Buffaloes.Former Bills head coach Doug Marrone cancelled an interview with the Broncos that was scheduled for Saturday. Marrone had been viewed as someone who would bring the toughness and discipline Elway covets after Denvers lacklustre effort Sunday in a 24-13 loss to the Indianapolis Colts.Also withdrawing his name from consideration was Lions defensive co-ordinator Teryl Austin.These developments point to the possibility that Kubiak, the Ravens offensive co-ordinator, is considered the favourite for the job given his ties to Elway and Denver.Kubiak was Elways backup QB from 1983-91 and was Denvers offensive co-ordinator from 1995-2005 under Mike Shanahan. He left in 2006 to coach the Houston Texans, a gig that lasted until 2013, when he had a health scare. Kubiak was fired with three games left in that season and joined the Ravens as their offensive co-ordinator last year.In Baltimore, Kubiak installed the zone-blocking system he learned in Denver and the Ravens improved from 30th in the league in rushing in 2013 to eighth last season. He said last week that he had no interest in another head coaching job, but that was before the Broncos and Fox parted ways Monday.Elway began his search by interviewing in-house candidate Adam Gase, the Broncos offensive co-ordinator, on Thursday after Gase lost out to Jim Tomsula for the 49ers vacancy. Manning has strongly endorsed Gase as a head coaching candidate.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap Nike NFL Jerseys Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Wholesale China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL Jerseys Stitched NFL Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys ' ' '
