TORONTO - Ryan Miller sat on the bench and didnt look up. [url=]h Antworten

TORONTO - Ryan Miller sat on the bench and didnt look up. . Already chased from the game, he had to listen to the call of Sidney Crosby beating him for the gold medal at the Olympics four years ago as it was replayed on the Air Canada Centres video screen.It was just that kind of night for Miller and the Vancouver Canucks, who carried the play but left with a hard-luck 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.I just didnt make the saves the guys needed, said Miller, who got the hook after allowing four goals on 14 shots.The Canucks out-shot the Leafs 46-28 but were stifled by goaltender Jonathan Bernier, who was stellar in making 44 saves for the victory.We can thank him for the win tonight, defenceman Stephane Robidas said. Its one of those that he stole the game for us.Bernier was on his game early and often. Two crucial saves early, one on a point-blank shot from Radim Vrbata and then another on a back-hander by Alexandre Edler were ones coach Randy Carlyle said really saved our butts.It helped that Canucks defenceman Yannick Weber put the puck in his own net on a goal that was credited to Jake Gardiner and that Richard Panik turned Kevin Bieksa inside out and scored less than a minute later to give the Leafs some room to breathe.But Carlyle called Bernier the catalyst, and it was impossible for anyone to argue.Tonight I felt really good. I was seeing pucks well, Bernier said, citing his familiarity with the Canucks as a reason for his success. I was just trying to stay patient tonight and stay on my feet as much as possible.In addition to Gardiner and Panik, Peter Holland and Joffrey Lupul also scored for the Leafs (14-9-3), who rebounded well from a poor effort Thursday night against the New Jersey Devils. David Clarkson added an empty-netter for his eighth goal of the season.Daniel Sedin and Christopher Tanev had Vancouvers goals in a game the Canucks believed they deserved better despite falling into a deep hole.It felt like we couldve won this game, captain Henrik Sedin said. Even down 4-0 I thought we created enough chances to come back in the game. We hit a few posts and werent able to score more than two.Backup goaltender Eddie Lack stopped all 13 shots he faced in relief for the Canucks (18-8-1), who continue their Eastern Conference tour Sunday night at the Ottawa Senators. Vancouver coach Willie Desjardins didnt say which goalie would be in net against the Senators.What Desjardins did do was absolve Miller of some blame. It was a rare bad night for him against the Leafs, as he entered with a 32-15-3 record, 2.47 goals-against average and .921 save percentage in his career vs. Toronto.Hes probably used up his luck in some of those other games, Desjardins said. It (didnt go) his way tonight. Hes a good goaltender. He had tough shots tonight. It wasnt his fault.There wouldve been plenty of blame to go around had the Leafs lost this game. They struggled to generate momentum for much of the first two periods and got into penalty trouble, especially in the second period.One of those penalties belonged to Robidas for elbowing Canucks forward Shawn Matthias in the head. Robidas said he wasnt trying to hurt Matthias, who left and did not return.Even with their parade to the penalty box, the Leafs stood tall. Bernier was their best player on the kill as they went six-for-six.If youre in games like specifically tonight and your penalty killing doesnt rise to the occasion, your chances of winning are almost nil, Carlyle said. Our PK guys did a heck of a job for us, and our goalie was outstanding.It certainly wasnt the sharpest of efforts from the Leafs, who needed a couple of breaks like the Canucks hitting the post and then the cross-bar in quick succession on the power play in the third period. Henrik Sedin believed he and his teammates could win the game if they had scored there to make it 4-3, but Bernier was glad the iron helped him out.They got two back-to-back there, Bernier said. Sometimes you need that luck.The Leafs could consider themselves lucky to come out of this one with two points. It was an all-too-familiar refrain with them being outshot badly and leaning on Bernier to get the job done.But again, it worked.Its not part of a recipe to have success, Robidas said. You cant give up over 40 shots and expect to win every night. ... They made some big plays, and again Bernie was there to make key saves at the right time.Notes — With the empty-netter and an assist, Clarkson registered his first multipoint game with the Leafs. ... Toronto winger David Booth picked up a secondary assist on Paniks goal, his first point of the season. Booth was bought out by the Canucks over the summer. ... Hollands goal was his second in three career games against Vancouver. ... Before the game, the Leafs activated winger Brandon Kozun off long-term injured reserve and placed defenceman Roman Polak on the injured list. Kozun did not play as Panik remained in the lineup.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter . Miralem Pjanic dribbled through the defence to score an extraordinary goal in the 43rd minute at the Stadio Olimpico and Gervinho added another from a rebound in the 65th for Romas ninth straight victory — ending Milans five-match winning streak. . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. . Neither made it that far in 2013. Not even close. Federer lost his second match at the All England Club. Nadal exited in the first round, a year after bowing out in the second.SURREY, B.C. -- The B.C. Lions have lost special teams player Stu Foord indefinitely due to a dislocated knee. "I think thats kind of what occurred," Lions coach Mike Benevides said Monday. "I dont have the terminology for (the dislocation) yet. But thats a fair statement, and now (doctors) are trying to let it all settle down, and trying to manage his pain right now is the biggest thing." Foord was injured in the second quarter of Sundays 24-22 victory over the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina. He was blocked by Graig Newman while covering on a B.C. punt. Benevides indicated Foord, a six-year CFL veteran who also plays running back, will face a long recovery period. "I dont think (his return) is going to be any time soon," said Benevides. "Once I get more information, Ill update you (media) guys on that, but I dont see it being a situation where he could play quickly." Foord, a Regina native who turned 28 on Monday, was injured while playing in front of friends and family in his hometown. He was hit from the side and his knee buckled. "Unfortunately, he was planting (his feet) and he was hit from the side," said Benevides. "Those things are going to occur. Its just unfortunate that he was on that play and he got hit from that direction." Benevides and general manager Wally Buono indicated they did not have a problem with the hit, although the returner was a fair distance away and in the process of being taken out of bounds. "Its tough to say," said Benevides of the hits necessity. "The point of attack, the guy thats blocking on the return team, is trying to make a play. Those things kind of happen, and its unfortunate. But, right now, were just praying for (Foord) and, hopefully, the pain will go down a little bit." Buono said he had not studied the play, and could not say whether the hit was illegal, but chalked up the hit to the usual happenings of football. "To me, whether it was a penalty or not a penalty, it doesnt matter," said Buono. "Its football. (The hit) was high. It wasnt like he took his knee out. (Foord) buckled. On the replay, I can see the hit. I can see the knee buckling. ... The play is the play. Its football. Thats why they get paid. I dont think the whistle blew, so hes part of the action." Foord is in his second season with B.C. after signing as a free agent in February 2012. He spent his first four seasons with the Roughriders and also played five seasons of junior football in his hometown with the Regina Thunder. "Hes still in Regina and hes still being looked at by the medical staff and doctors there," said Benevides. The Lions visit the Winnipeg Blue Bombers on Friday.
