UNIONDALE, N. Djibril Sidibe France Jersey
.Y. - According to James van Riemsdyk, his linemate Phil Kessel was this close to discarding his sticks.The New York Islanders may wish the high-scoring winger went through with it, as Kessel scored two goals to lead the Toronto Maple Leafs to a 5-2 win Tuesday night.Thats how it goes, van Riemsdyk said. He doesnt need room to be able to put (pucks) in.Nine Maple Leafs finished with at least one point, led by Kessels three. James van Riemsdyk and Mike Santorelli had two points apiece.Roman Polak, van Riemsdyk and David Clarkson also scored goals for Toronto (3-3-1), which has earned points in four of its last five games.Jonathan Bernier made 32 saves.Nick Leddy and John Tavares scored for New York (4-2-0), which lost its second game in a row Jaroslav Halak allowed five goals on 23 shots before being replaced by Chad Johnson at the start of the third period.Johnson stopped all five shots he faced.We were just easy to play against, Tavares said. We were just soft on pucks, we stopped moving our feet, and we were just an easy team to play against.Toronto turned a 2-1 deficit at the start of the second period into 5-2 advantage by intermission, as the Leafs peppered Halak for four goals on 13 shots.Kessel started the offensive onslaught at 9:04 of the second with his third of the season which tied the game 2-2.Polak gave Toronto its first lead of the game 2:07 after Kessels goal with his first as a Leaf. Santorelli and Daniel Winnik set up the go-ahead goal by controlling the puck behind the goal line before Polak scored his 14th career goal in 431 games.Clarkson pushed the advantage to 4-2 with 3:39 remaining in the period with a snap shot from the high slot that Halak couldnt glove. Kessel scored his second of the period 92 seconds later causing the 11,408 in attendance to boo the Islanders off the ice.In (the) second we got back to working, Clarkson said. (We) took the puck in their zone and started cycling, making plays. We were better in our own zone. The difference in the game was the second.Well take the positives from that.As dominant as Toronto was in the second period, the Islanders were their equals in the opening 20 minutes.Leddy opened the scoring just 2:48 into the game as he walked down the slot before beating Bernier with a wrist shot.Van Riemsdyk equalized nearly six minutes later. New York defenceman Thomas Hickey lost the puck in the corner, and Kessel found van Riemsdyk alone in the slot for his third goal of the season.But the Islanders went ahead 2-1 on Tavares power play goal at 15:02. The New York centre one-timed the rebound of Johnny Boychuks point shot, which had ricocheted off the backboard, past Bernier.We knew the early history of the season with their hockey club, they really come at you in the early going, Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. We weathered a storm. They score the first goal, we get it back. They score the second goal, we get it back. After that we kind of got things going our way in the second periodNOTES: The Islanders will introduce their new owners, Jonathan Ledecky and Scott Malkin, in a press conference Wednesday afternoon at the Nassau Coliseum. Ledecky and Malkin will spend the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons as the franchises minority owners, then transitioning into the majority owners starting in 2016-17. ... Toronto announced the hiring of Mark Hunter as the Director of Player Personnel in a statement Tuesday morning. I am very excited about joining the Toronto Maple Leafs organization, said Hunter, who stepped down from his role as owner, Vice-President and General Manager of the Ontario Hockey Leagues London Knights to take the position with the Leafs. I am grateful for the opportunity that has been given to me by (Maple Leafs President) Brendan Shanahan, (General Manager) David Nonis and the entire management team. I would like to thank the London Knights organization for 12 great years. I am looking forward to the start of a new chapter in Toronto. Zinedine Zidane France Jersey

. After missing 20 games as a rookie a year ago, Valanciunas - like the Raptors as a whole - has been fortunate to be in good health this season. As he spoke about it, the Raptors sophomore centre scanned the room for wood to knock on. "It is disappointing because we lost today so thats the worst part of the day," said Valanciunas, who left Tuesdays game with a lower-back sprain in the third quarter, missing the rest of Torontos 118-113 overtime defeat at the hands of the Hawks. http://www.nationalfrancesoccer.com/olivier-giroud-france-jersey/

Viewers in the Canadiens region can watch the game on TSN Habs at 7:30pm et/8:30pm at.SAN DIEGO - Philip Rivers gingerly eased himself onto the stool at his locker, clearly sore after injuring his leg and then having the wind knocked out of him.While beat up, at least Rivers and the San Diego Chargers werent beaten as they had been in their previous three games.Rivers threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Malcom Floyd on the games third play from scrimmage, and the Chargers held on for a lacklustre 13-6 victory against winless Oakland on Sunday, extending the Raiders losing streak to 16.The Chargers (6-4) snapped a three-game skid and welcomed back Ryan Mathews, Manti Teo and Melvin Ingram, who had been out since September.Oakland played well today, and it probably wasnt our best offensive day, but they had a lot to do with it, Rivers said.We found a way to win, and that is what its all about.The losing streak by the Raiders (0-10) is the equivalent of a full season. Monday is the one-year anniversary of their last win, 28-23 at Houston.Rivers was hurt after a 28-yard completion to Floyd was negated by a holding call against left tackle King Dunlap midway through the third quarter. The Chargers had to settle for Nick Novaks 52-yard field goal that made it 13-3.He had the wind knocked out of him in the fourth quarter and was walking gingerly on the sideline as backup Kellen Clemens warmed up.I will be fine, Rivers said.He went back in after Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 25-yard field goal to pull the Raiders within a touchdown with four minutes to play.The Chargers were coming off their bye, which was preceded by a 37-0 loss at Miami on Nov. 2, their worst in 18 seasons.Rivers was 22 of 34 for 193 yards.I didnt throw it as good as I need to throw it, but they covered us some — credit to them, he said. A lot of times there wasnt a lot there.The Chargers came up with a huge play on third-and-3 after the Raiders closed within a touchdown when tight end Antonio Gates tipped a pass to himself between safeties Charles Woodson and Brandian Ross for a 15-yard gain to the Oakland 45.Awesome catch,, Rivers said.

. I think I should have thrown it to him sooner.Woodson was in position to break it up or intercept it.Thats a play I should have made, Woodson said. I felt I let the team down. I dont know how many times I caught balls like that. ... Thats how the seasons going. Its been that close a lot of times.Oakland got to the San Diego 7 with 4:10 left, but the drive stalled and Janikowski kicked his 25-yarder.A desperation pass by Raiders rookie Derek Carr fell incomplete short of the end zone as time expired.Carr was 16 of 34 for 172 yards.Obviously there is a lot of anger, Carr said. Obviously there is a lot of disappointment. But no ones giving up; no one is going to give up.Novak extended his franchise-record streak to 32 consecutive field goals by making a 23-yarder late in the second quarter. He then pushed a 48-yard attempt wide left as the half ended.Carr fumbled on the games first play from scrimmage when he mishandled a shotgun snap, and San Diego linebacker Donald Butler recovered at the 22. Two plays later, Floyd leaped to catch a touchdown pass over T.J. Carrie.Carr almost led the Raiders to an upset of the Chargers on Oct. 12 but was intercepted with 1:13 to play to preserve San Diegos 31-28 victory.The Raiders crossed the 50-yard line only twice Sunday. They got to the San Diego 23 on their third drive before settling for Janikowskis 42-yard field goal.NOTES: Each team punted nine times. ... Raiders first-round draft pick Khalil Mack had his first career sack. ... Mathews had 70 yards on 16 carries. He limped out of the locker room, his right knee heavily wrapped.
