MONTREAL -- Aaron Ekblad, Johnny Gaudreau and Dylan Larkin each scored twice to help North America beat Europe 7-4 on Sunday night in the second of three exhibition games for both sides leading into the World Cup of Hockey.Morgan Rielly also scored, and John Gibson made 29 saves for the team made up of Canadian and U.S players 23 or under as of Oct. 1. North America led 5-1 after the first period.We were making plays, we were fast, coach Todd McLellan said. But the game tightened up and we didnt do a good job of adjusting. The whole night turned into making nice plays. They forgot about the grit game and the defending. These young players want to have fun and play that way, but if we give up four goals a night, were not going to have success. We got cute. We got fancy. We have to play a better, solid team game.Marian Gaborik scored twice for Europe, and Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and Frans Nielsen added goals.Thomas Greiss allowed four goals on eight shots before being pulled 10 minutes into the first period. His replacement, former Montreal Canadiens netminder Jaroslav Halak, made 22 saves on 24 shots.We had a slow start and it cost us the game, Halak said. We made it real easy on them. We turned it around in the second. We knew we had to play better. Everyone knew what we had to do out there.North America also beat Europe 4-0 on Thursday night in Quebec City. North America captain Connor McDavid finished without a point for the second straight game.

PHILADELPHIA -- The NFL is expected to pick up the majority of the cost to stage the 2017 draft in Philadelphia, with the citys iconic Rocky steps serving as its backdrop.City officials say they dont expect the NFLs 82nd event to come at taxpayer expense, but instead expect to fundraise about $5 million of the $25 million budget with the league paying for the events staging and infrastructure.Senior vice president Peter OReilly said on Thursday the events location will represent a return to the birthplace of the draft. The first NFL draft was held in Philadelphia in 1936, when the Eagles selected versatile halfback Jay Berwanger first overall.This is clearly a very passionate football town, its also a city steeped in NFL history, Reilly said.The draft was held in New York for decades before being moved in 2015 to Chicago, where it was also held this year. It was last held in Philly in 1960.Hosting the draft is just the latest in a string of high profile events for Philadelphia. Pope Francis celebrated Mass in a similar location near the Philadelphia Museum of Art on Benjamin Franklin Parkway during a visit to the city last fall. The city also hosted the four-day Democratic National Convention in July.Mayor Jim Kenney said the city knows how to hold major events, and while hosting the draft may ultimately require some city funds, it will be worth the return on investment.Its a very signifiicant event from individual expenditures.ddddddddddddPeople who come are going to be spending money, Kenney said.City officials visited Chicago to see how the event was previously hosted, and took NFL leadership on tours of Philadelphia and its venues.Philadelphia beat out several other locations vying to host the event, which will be held April 27-29. The first three rounds are held in prime time. The hometown Eagles wont have a pick, however, in the first round.Draft organizers said Philadelphia may draw a bigger crowd than Chicago because nine NFL team markets sit within driving distance to the city. Philadelphia is currently one of 13 teams not to have won a Super Bowl.Julie Coker-Graham, Philadelphia convention and visitors bureau president, said more than 200,000 fans are expected to flood the city during the three-day event. Half of those fans are expected to come from out of town.ESPN analyst and former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski will help lead the host committee and said he and others were relentless in (their) approach to find a way to get the draft back to Philadelphia, 80 years after its conception.Theres incredible passion for football in this community, he said.---AP NFL websites: http://pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFLWholesale JerseysWholesale Jerseyscheap jerseysCheap JersyesCheap Basketball JerseysCheap NHL Jerseyscheap jerseysCheap JerseysCheap JerseysCheap Jerseys From ChinaCheap NFL Jerseys ' ' '
