9, 4.82). Walker gave up five runs in 4 1 Antworten

International Ice Hockey Federation President Rene Fasel said he had a good discussion Wednesday with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and NHL Players Association Executive Director Don Fehr about the worlds top hockey players participating in the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.No hitting, and no elbows, Fasel joked in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.Bettman described the meeting as constructive and candid.Still lots of issues, Bettman wrote in an email to the AP.Fasel said his job is to raise funds for the players transportation and insurance. The International Olympic Committee does not want to cover those costs as it has the previous five Olympics. Fasel hopes to persuade the IOC to financially support the NHLs participation.It is the only league that shuts down to participate in the Winter or Summer Olympics, Fasel said.Bettman and NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly declined to comment on a Sportsnet report indicating the league has offered to sign off on allowing players to go for gold in South Korea in exchange for the union not opting out of the collective bargaining agreement in September 2019, which would in effect extend the deal for three years.There have been some suggestions that could be construed that that discussion would be worth having, Fehr told reporters in New York. Obviously, we discuss that with players. We have begun that process, but were a long way from done.Bettman has said a decision would need to be made by early January at the latest, giving the league time to create its 2017-18 schedule with or without a two-plus week break for the Olympics.Fasel isnt in a rush.We can wait longer because we want to do all we can to keep best-on-best hockey in the Olympics, Fasel said.NHL and NHLPA officials recently visited the Olympic site in Pyeongchang, South Korea, and have deemed it suitable for international competition.Whether the worlds best hockey players go to South Korea in about 15 months is up to the league and union, though Russian superstar Alexander Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals has said he will go even if there isnt an agreement.The IOC spent about $14 million to cover travel and insurance costs for NHL players for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Fasel has said the bill would be about $10 million for the next Olympics because it wont be necessary to charter planes to South Korea as it was to get players to Sochi.The NHL hasnt sounded eager about going to South Korea, but does appear very interested in tapping into Chinas huge market in 2022.When the IOC awarded the Beijing Games, it certainly created a bigger opportunity than we thought existed potentially before, Daly said in September. But it is also possible that you dont go to one Olympics and you do go to the other. I dont think anybody has ruled that out as a possibility.Fasel has been trying to persuade national Olympic committees and hockey federations to donate funds to keep the games best players on the biggest stage in sports. He acknowledged the IIHF could possibly use some of the $40 million it gets from the IOC every four years and make cuts from its development programs for boys and girls.Its not going to be easy to get this done, but thats my job, Fasel said.---Follow Larry Lage at and follow his work at LeShaun Sims Jersey .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. Brian Orakpo Jersey . Burke is expected to miss two to three months after breaking a finger in the teams third preseason game. Tinsley, a 10-year veteran, spent the last two seasons in Utah, where the point guard averaged 3. . The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Lions have not announced the hiring, which was first reported by ESPN.

A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak. Karl Klug Jersey .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. MINNEAPOLIS -- Nelson Cruzs towering two-run home run seemed to give the Seattle Mariners the jolt they needed Saturday night, tying the score.Instead, Minnesotas own big slugger, Miguel Sano, responded with his own big swing and a big defensive play after an error in the ninth inning to keep Seattles struggling offense down and deal a blow to the Mariners wild-card hopes.Sano hit a tiebreaking homer in the fourth inning and Tyler Duffey pitched seven strong innings for his best start in more than a month as the Twins beat Seattle 3-2 on Saturday night.They hit a big homer there, Sano said. But I want the team win every day, and not a loss.Sanos 24th homer followed Cruzs tying shot in the top of the fourth. Cruzs homer reached the third deck in left field for what was estimated by ESPNs Home Run Tracker as 454 feet.Duffey (9-11) gave up the two runs and four hits while striking out four Seattle hitters. Its just the third win by a Minnesota starter since Sept. 3.Pitching, its amazing how it can change the complexion of the game, Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said.Jorge Polanco also had a solo home run for the Twins, who snapped a seven-game losing streak.The Mariners threatened in the ninth against Brandon Kintzler when Robinson Cano singled and Cruz reached on an error by Sano. But Kyle Seagers hard grounder was snared by Sano, who stepped on third and threw to first for a double play. Adam Lind flied out to end the game and give Kintzler his 15th save in 18 chances.Bad moment that I miss the ball, try to catch and throw early, Sano said. I told Polanco, I want another ball. Caught and make double play, finish the game there. This is the situation. My fault when I miss the ball, need to keep going.Ariel Miranda (5-2) lost for the first time in five starts this month, lasting four innings and giving up three runs and three hits.dddddddddddd Seattle fell 2? games behind Baltimore for the second AL wild card.Theyre all important, Mariners manager Scott Servais said. Tonight was important, tomorrows important, the next ones important. Its just where we are in the season.The Mariners have struggled offensively even while winning 11 of their previous 15 games. Theyve scored two runs or fewer in six of their past eight games.The Twins have been in a similar stretch. Polancos third home run of the season in the first gave the team its first lead since last Saturday at the New York Mets.DUFFEYS ADJUSTMENTDuffey had allowed at least five earned runs in three of his past five starts, and the right-hander had his most recent start skipped due to an off day. He said he made an adjustment between starts.Like I told [Molitor] when I came out, You get pissed off enough, you eventually make an adjustment, Duffey said, later adding: Just slowing down. I finally found a good rhythm to keep me composed, to keep from pulling off the ball. I located a lot better today.TRAINERS ROOMTwins: 1B Joe Mauer was out of the lineup for the fourth straight game as he deals with sore quadriceps. Manager Paul Molitor said he would see how Mauer felt on Sunday to see if he could be in the lineup for the final home game of the season.UP NEXTMariners RHP Taijuan Walker (6-11, 4.32 ERA) starts against Santiago (12-9, 4.82). Walker gave up five runs in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Twins earlier this season. Santiago was 2-0 with a 1.29 ERA in two starts against the Mariners this season with the Los Angeles Angels. But Santiago has a 6.20 ERA in nine starts for Minnesota after being acquired in a trade.The Associated Press contributed to this report.?
