MOSCOW -- Russia is prepared to give up hosting rights for some World Cup cross-country skiing races to help the countrys image amid a doping scandal.Elena Valbe, the president of the Russian cross-country skiing federation, said she would absolutely allow the March 16-19 final round of the World Cup in Tyumen to be moved outside the country if it would generate goodwill to let Russia compete at the 2018 Winter Olympics.My deep conviction is that now we need to think about our team going to the Olympics Games, Valbe told state news agency R-Sport on Thursday. A World Cup stage is a second-level issue.Russia is again under pressure after a report last week by World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren detailed a vast, state-sponsored doping cover-up involving 12 medalists from the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.On Tuesday, the 2017 world bobsled and skeleton championships were moved from Russia after several of the top sliders said they would not compete in the country because of doping concerns, something Valbe argued had set a precedent for more events being transferred or canceled.If one federation is doing something, theres probably a joint agreement, or at least theyve consulted among themselves, she said.In July, the International Olympic Committee encouraged winter sports federations not to schedule competitions in Russia because of doping concerns, though the call prompted little response at the time.On Thursday, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that an atmosphere of suspicion around Russia was not enough to move events like the bobsled world championships.The anti-doping campaign has turned into an anti-Russian campaign, Medvedev said.

Sixteen Columbus players picked up at least one point.Theres nothing positive about tonight -- nothing, Montreal coach Michel Therrien said.The Blue Jackets banged away at Al Montoya, Montreals backup goalie who started in place of Carey Price in the first game of a back-to-back set. On a power play with 9:04 left in the first, Foligno tapped it out from behind the net to Atkinson, who picked up his third goal of the season and later would get his fourth.Jones found the net just 58 seconds later from the left circle on a pass out from behind the goal line from Anderson to make it 2-0.Savard scored for Columbus again with 5:54 left in the first -- with a bit of luck.

Hartnell and Anderson added the last two in the third period.Youve been on the other side where everything is not going right, Foligno said. It just seemed to be the case tonight where we were just getting every bounce. But we were earning it, too. Im not going to take away from our game, either. We did a lot of good things. But Ive never been up by 10 in my entire career.Montoya had 30 saves for Montreal.The record output was no big deal to Columbus coach John Tortorella.All it is one tick in the win column and one tick in the loss column, he said.Game notes Columbus Alexander Wennberg appeared to score off his skate in the second period, but the goal was disallowed because officials ruled he deliberately kicked it. ...
