BUFFALO, N.Y. - A week ago, William Karlsson wasnt sure he made the Anaheim Ducks roster until the centre boarded the team fligh Antworten

BUFFALO, N.Y. - A week ago, William Karlsson wasnt sure he made the Anaheim Ducks roster until the centre boarded the team flight for a season-opening four-game eastern road swing. On Monday afternoon, the rookie 21-year-old centre was celebrating his first two NHL goals following a one-sided 5-1 win over the winless Buffalo Sabres. I had a goal to make the team, but I was ready to go back to Norfolk, Karlsson said, referring to the Ducks Virginia-based AHL affiliate. But now Im here. And now my next focus is the next game. Karlsson has certainly earned his opportunity filling the third-line centre role in place of injured forwards Dany Heatley (groin) and Kyle Palmieri (ankle). He put the Ducks up 2-0 at 8:15 of the second period by snapping a shot in from the slot. Karlsson then made it 4-0 early in the third period, when he batted in his own rebound. Coach Bruce Boudreau held out Karlsson in the Ducks opener at Pittsburgh, before giving him a shot in a 3-2 win at Detroit on Saturday. We put him in, and it was, Not bad. Lets see what hes got again, Boudreau said. And tonight, I thought he was our best player. Ryan Kesler scored on a third-period penalty shot and Corey Perry and Matt Beleskey had a goal each in a game Anaheim outshot the Sabres 44-12. The Ducks (2-1) were so dominant — and Sabres so inept — that Anaheim was outshooting Buffalo 40-10 when Kessler beat goalie Michal Neuvirth with a low shot inside the left post with 7:35 remaining. Tyler Ennis scored the Sabres lone goal, spoiling Frederik Andersons first career-shutout bid at the 6:36 mark of the third period. It was like an NHL team playing against a Pee Wee team. They dominated us from start to finish, Sabres coach Ted Nolan said. We werent strong enough, not committed enough, not smart enough. No desperation. Neuvirth held his own by stopping 39 shots in making his first start. The trouble was, the Sabres provided little offensive support after being outshot 29-7 through 40 minutes. The Sabres hardly look improved in coming off a last-place finish in which they scored an NHL post-expansion-era-low 150 goals, and lost a franchise-worst 51 games. Before last year, Buffalo had never opened a season 0-3. Now the Sabres have done it in consecutive years. Following a 6-2 loss at Chicago, Buffalo has been outscored by a combined 14-4 and outshot 131-57. We need to be mad and get angry, Ennis said, looking ahead to Buffalos game at Carolina on Tuesday. We need to play really hard tomorrow and we will. The only downside to the Ducks victory was forward Patrick Maroon not returning after hurting his left leg 11 minutes into the second period. Maroon was driving up the right wing, when his left knee was clipped by Sabres defenceman Josh Gorges hip check near the boards. Maroon lay on the ice for several minutes and required help to be escorted to the locker room. Maroon was spotted leaving the Ducks locker room with his left leg immobilized. Boudreau said it was too early to determine the severity of the injury, but added there was no chance Maroon will play at Philadelphia on Tuesday. Perry opened the scoring with a power-play goal at 15:30 of the first period. Anaheim then sealed the victory in the first four minutes of the third, when Beleskey and Karlsson scored 18 seconds apart to make it 4-0. The crowd was so unhappy that it cheered when Cody McCormick shot the puck the length of the ice and into an open Anaheim net after the whistle blew following a delayed penalty against Buffalo late in the first period. NOTES: Before the game, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman was in Buffalo to announce the Sabres had been selected to host the 2016 draft. ... Sabres LW Marcus Foligno did not play after getting, what coach Ted Nolan called, banged up in a 6-2 loss at Chicago on Saturday. Flynn made his season debut in Folignos place. ...

With the suspension, Nigeria is unable to take part in any kind of international fixtures. FIFA had issued a warning to the NFF last week after the federation was served with court proceedings from the government that prevented the NFFs president from running the NFFs day-to-day affairs.BATA, Equatorial Guinea - Equatorial Guinea taking over late as host of the African Cup of Nations may not be great for the tournaments troublesome last-minute planning, but its pretty good for the home team.Six months ago, Equatorial Guinea was thrown out of the African soccer championship for cheating in qualifying. On Saturday, it will play in the tournaments opening game against Republic of Congo in front of its own red and blue-clad fans.How did that happen?Equatorial Guinea stepped in late last year when Morocco pulled out as host because of Ebola, fearing the deadly virus might spread during the 16-team, three-week tournament. With its decision to stand in, Equatorial Guinea earned a spot for its team in place of Morocco.When the Equatorial Guinea team learned it would participate in the CAN (African Cup), it was very quick. Quick, quick, Equatorial Guineas newly-appointed Argentine coach Esteban Becker said on Friday. And we have organized the team for a new coach. But the players mentality ... for them the mentality is very happy for the African Cup.The national team is theoretically picked from a population of just over 700,000 people, although foreign-born players once dominated the Equatorial Guinea lineup and sometimes got the country into trouble. Equatorial Guineas initial disqualification last year was for selecting a player from neighbouring Cameroon.At this African Cup, the teams strength will again be playing at home, as it was three years ago when it co-hosted the Cup of Nations and reached the quarterfinals, surprising Senegal on the way.Were not thinking about the quarterfinals, the semifinals or the final, captain Javier Balboa, who once played for Real Madrids reserve team, said ahead of this campaign. Game by game by game.In 2012, Equatorial Guineas riotous home support spurred it on. But on Friday, just a few supporters stood outside a broken-down ticket office on the outskirts of Bata Stadium, one wearing a wooly Equatorial Guinea hat and team scarf in the 30-degree heat and sweltering equatorial humidity. It didnt look like a mad rush for tickets on the eve of the opening night, when Burkina Faso also faces Gabon in a double-header at the same stadium.dddddddddddd.Fearing poor crowds — a problem at many African Cups — the government announced this week that ticket prices would be reduced to cater for the many poor.They will start at 500 Central African francs, or around $1, in the remote host towns of Mongomo and Ebebiyin. The cheapest tickets will be $2 for games in the bigger cities of Bata and Malabo, the capital. And for 40,000 supporters, their tickets to a game will be free, bought for them by the countrys president. Teodoro Obiang Nguema announced his gesture to the country on national television this week.Let those who have the means help the poor, Obiang said. Myself, I bought 40,000 tickets.A charm offensive, maybe. But for this curious country halfway up the west coast of Africa, where Spanish is spoken, oil is big business and the autocratic Obiang has been firmly in charge since he took over in a coup in 1979, the tournament could be a major boost for its image if it comes off.Still, it is a risk.There are already problems with the organization, including no running water and dangerous electric cables at one teams hotel, no rooms at all for another squad, and a training ground located in the middle of the rainforest and a two-hour drive from its base for a third, tournament favourite Algeria.Coach Claude Le Roy, whose Republic of Congo plays Equatorial Guinea in the opening game, has complained bitterly about the standard of his teams hotel. Le Roy declined to answer questions on the issue on Friday, telling reporters to go ask organizers the Confederation of African Football about the running of the tournament, which he has said should have been delayed to give Equatorial Guinea more time.As Le Roy spoke at Bata Stadium, the lights suddenly failed, temporarily plunging a media room into darkness. As they flickered weakly back on again, Le Roy started laughing.___Gerald Imray is on Twitter at ' ' '
