After feeling satisfied about his teams play in three losses to open the Stanley Cup final, New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneau Antworten

After feeling satisfied about his teams play in three losses to open the Stanley Cup final, New York Rangers coach Alain Vigneault could easily empathize with the Los Angeles Kings when the roles were reversed in Game 4. Cheap Stan Smith Shoes China . "It was a real tough game, I think, for L.A," Vigneault said. "It was probably their best game of the playoffs that theyve played against us." And it was a loss, as the Kings failed to finish off the sweep thanks to 40 saves by Henrik Lundqvist, one by Anton Stralman and one by a combination of snow built up in the crease and Derek Stepan. That the Rangers needed so much luck and strong goaltending only underscored just how dominant Los Angeles was. Just dont tell the results-oriented Kings that. Even after players talked after wins about needing to play better, the self-criticism was turned up despite outshooting the Rangers 41-19. "At the end of the day, we werent good enough to win," captain Dustin Brown said. "Its about finding a way to be better." The chance to do that comes in Fridays Game 5 back at Staples Center in Los Angeles with the Kings still in command of the series and the Cup waiting nearby. After Game 4 at Madison Square Garden, it didnt feel as though the Kings were on the cusp of the title, like it did after they went up three games to none. All around the visiting locker-room there was talk about what areas needed to be better, from start to finish. "We still probably could play better for a full game," fourth-line centre Mike Richards said. "It took us a little bit to get into it again for whatever reason." A turnover off the opening faceoff by leading Conn Smythe Trophy candidate Drew Doughty was an inauspicious start, but the Kings still had the lions share of chances. No time was that more evident than in the third period, when the Kings shelled Lundqvist to the tune of 15 shots to New Yorks one, which didnt come until almost 13 minutes had elapsed. The puck was close to going in, but it didnt. "We had some good chances in the third," Brown said. "We have to put ourselves in better situations." While the Kings gave Lundqvist his due for stonewalling them, they put the onus on themselves to get better scoring chances moving forward in the series. Quality, not quantity. "I think we can do a better job getting to him," centre Anze Kopitar said. "I think (there) a couple of times where we didnt make it tough on him. The pucks were sitting there. But the pucks hes going to see, hes going to stop. Thats just how it is." Twice, when Stralman knocked the puck off the goal-line in the first and when Stepan swept it off with 71 seconds left in the third, Lundqvist didnt see the puck until it was almost too late. Alec Martinez couldve had a goal and then an assist on a shot deflected by Tanner Pearson, but that wasnt how things went for the Kings on Wednesday night. Doughty even called both goals against "pretty bad bounces." And while luck has appeared to define this series, the Kings arent on the verge of a second championship in three years because they rely on good fortune. "If we clean up our play, you make your own bounces at this time of year," Brown said. "We had chances that we didnt put in the back of the net." Having reached the final by coming back from a 3-0 series deficit against the San Jose Sharks and needing seven games in the other two series, the Kings know what to expect energy-wise from the Rangers on Friday night. Thats a big help. But an even bigger help would be fixing any holes that have kept the Kings from polishing things off. "We could still do some better things for a more consistent period of time," Richards said. "Well look at it. Watch some video and correct a couple of things and put our best foot forward." Wholesale Authentic Stan Smith .com) - Former New York Mets general manager Omar Minaya is joining the Major League Baseball Players Association staff as a senior advisor to executive director Tony Clark.

Cornet broke Bouchard twice in the last set and saved six break points in the three-hour match.BALTIMORE -- When the Toronto Blue Jays broke out their two-week slump at the plate, nothing could stop them from circling the bases -- except a gaffe by an overeager ball girl. Jose Bautista launched a three-run homer and Colby Rasmus and Brett Lawrie added solo shots as the Blue Jays set season highs for runs and hits Sunday to beat the Baltimore Orioles 11-3 Sunday. "We figured it was a matter of time and we knew it was going to happen," manager John Gibbons said. "We know we have a good lineup." "It was a good all-around effort," he said. A ball girl at Camden Yards turned in an excellent effort, too. But too bad for her, it came on a ball that was still in play. It was 1-all in the fourth when Adam Lind walked on four pitches and Edwin Encarnacion hit a hard grounder down the third base line. The ball girl near the left-field seats quickly ran to field it, making a neat pickup. She took delight in her play until she realized sheepishly that she interfered with a live ball, which forced Lind to stop at third on the ground-rule double. Dioner Navarro followed with a run-scoring groundout and Jonathan Diaz executed a perfect suicide squeeze on a pitch that came in at eye level. Encarnacion, Lind and Rasmus each got three of the Blue Jays 17 hits, and six different players had RBIs. Toronto had scored four runs or fewer in 10 of its first 12 games. Mark Buehrle (3-0) gave up one run on five hits, walked none and struck out two over seven innings. The left-hander has allowed only two runs in 21 innings, an 0.86 ERA. "It means Im getting really lucky and Im fooling a lot of people," Buehrle said. "I dont know whats going on." Chris Davis hit his first homer of the season for Baltimore, an eighth-inning drive off Esmil Rogers. Davis had a major league-leading 53 home runs last year. Matt Wieters also connected for the Orioles, who scored only five runs in losing two of three to Toronto. Ubaldo Jimenez (0-3) allowed five runs and 10 hits over 5 1-3 innings in his third straight ineffective start. Signed to a four-year contract as a free agent in February, the right-hander has yielded 23 hits in 16 innings and owns a 7.31 ERA. "You waant to win, you want to be there for your team," Jimenez said. Authentic Adidas Stan Smith From China. "But I know its part of the game. I cant give up, I cant put my head down and feel sorry for myself. I have to keep working hard and find a way to be there." Toronto pulled away with a five-run seventh, its biggest inning of the year. Lawrie hit a solo shot before Rasmus and Encarnacion hit two-run doubles off Josh Stinson. Bautista connected in the eighth against Stinson to make it 11-1. Five of his nine hits this year are home runs. In addition to hitting the ball hard, the Blue Jays played sound defence. Rasmus deftly chased down two flyballs in centre and Lawrie made a sensational stop and throw at third base to rob Jonathan Schoop of a hit in the fifth inning. "(Buehrle) had some defence behind him," Gibbons said. "He pitches to contact. They hit some balls deep but he kept them in the ballpark." Rasmus put Toronto up 1-0 in the first inning with his second home run in two games, a towering drive that became the 78th in the 23-year history of Camden Yards to land on Eutaw Street beyond the right field wall. Baltimore pulled even in the bottom half when Nick Markakis singled and scored on a groundout by Adam Jones. But the Orioles wasted a leadoff double by Steve Pearce in the second, leaving them 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position. "As an offence, we definitely want to score some more runs early in the game," Davis said. "When you go up there and put up a run early, youve got to continue to score runs. Tip your hat to Buehrle. Hes been around. He knows how to pitch. He used our aggressiveness against us today." NOTES: Toronto 2B Maicer Izturis was put on the DL after the game with a sprained left knee. ... The Blue Jays have Monday off before opening a three-game series in Minnesota. The Orioles send Wei-Yin Chen to the mound Monday night in the opener of a three-game series against Tampa Bay. ...
