ST. LOUIS -- Hiroki Kuroda snapped an 11-start road winless streak and Jacoby Ellsbury helped build an early lead with three hits and three RBIs his first three at-bats in the New York Yankees 7-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night. John Ryan Murphy added two RBIs for the Yankees, who took two of three without an appearance from Mark Teixeira, nursing a sore wrist, and wrapped up a 5-4 trip. Catcher Brian McCann made his first career start at first base in the finale. Shelby Miller (6-4) allowed a career-worst seven runs and nine hits in five innings for St. Louis. Kolten Wong had a career-best four hits and an RBI, Matt Carpenter doubled twice with an RBI and Yadier Molina had two hits and two walks, but the Cardinals stranded 13 runners. Derek Jeter didnt play in the finale but made a curtain call before the seventh inning after the scoreboard camera focused on him in the dugout and fans responded with another standing ovation. Kuroda (4-3) allowed three runs in 5 2-3 innings for his first road victory since last July 25 at Texas. He had been 0-7 since then, the longest drought of his career but is 1-1 away from Yankee Stadium this year. Miller had won five of his previous six starts but has lasted fewer than six innings seven times in his 11 starts. Frequently jumping on the first pitch, the Yankees pelted the 23-year-old right-hander for seven runs and seven hits. He walked two in the third and fourth. Ellsbury had an RBI single in the third as five straight Yankees reached safely, and added a two-run single in the fourth. Murphy had a two-run single in the fourth. The Cardinals stranded two in the second and left the bases loaded in the third when Yadier Molina popped out to second. Kuroda has allowed just one extra-base hit with the bases loaded in 65 career plate appearances, limiting opponents to 14 hits in 57 at-bats with a double. St. Louis chipped away with single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth and Wongs RBI single off David Robertson in the eighth cut the deficit to three. The first two Cardinals reached in the ninth before Robertson struck out the next three, including pinch-hitter Matt Adams, to earn his 12th save in 13 chances. NOTES: All three games were sellouts. Paid attendance of 45,267 in the finale was the Cardinals 13th in 24 home dates. ... Adams did not start at 1B due to calf tightness. ... The Yankees have a day off Thursday before beginning a seven-game homestand against the Twins, Mariners and As. Vidal Nuno (1-1, 5.49) starts Friday against Minnesotas Ricky Nolasco (2-5, 6.12). The Cardinals open a four-game series at home against the Giants Thursday, with Jaime Garcia (1-0, 4.26) opposing Ryan Vogelsong (3-2, 3.20). ... Matt Holliday singled in the third and has reached base safely in all 24 home games. ... The Yankees are 6-3 overall against St. Louis.

That gave the Milwaukee Bucks veteran forward a reason to smile. http://www.officialgoldenknightsfanstore...ts-jersey-c-54/. The Packers, Lions and Bears were a combined 35-15 and as long as Jay Cutler can say healthy, all three could make the playoffs in 2012. Tomas Nosek Jersey .500 were once common achievements for the Dallas Mavericks. Now, both are season highs as Dallas slowly works its way back into playoff contention in the Western Conference. Vadim Shipachyov Jersey .The team had a meeting prior to facing Russia at the world junior hockey championship and got the effort theyve been looking for by defeating the Russians 4-1 to advance to the quarter-finals.MONTREAL — Not many get a second chance at a job theyve turned down once before, but Hockey Canada officials felt Benoit Groulx earned it.And theyve put the 46-year-old into the most pressure-packed job in all of junior hockey — head coach of Canadas team at a world junior championship to be played on home ice in Montreal and Toronto.Groulx, the dome-topped coach of the Gatineau Olympiques of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, was named as national junior coach in 2009 only to walk away when an offer came to guide the Florida Panthers farm team, the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League.It wasnt a missed opportunity, it was just the wrong timing, Groulx said this week. I was (coaching) in juniors for seven or eight years and I had this chance from (Panthers ex-general manager) Jacques Martin in Florida and for me, it was just natural to move up the ladder and try that.Now I feel Im privileged to be coach of this team because you dont get that second chance often in your career. When I came back from Rochester, I thought Id like to have a shot at this team again. But I know there are phenomenal coaches in junior hockey, and thats why I feel privileged to have a second chance.His return began a year ago when he was named as an assistant to head coach Brent Sutter for the world junior championship in Malmo, Sweden, where Canadas second-youngest team ever finished out of the medals in fourth place.This years squad has seven returning players, including the gifted 17-year-old Connor McDavid, and captain Curtis Lazar, who was playing in the NHL until last week when he was loaned for the tournament by the Ottawa Senators.It is an older team with more skill up front than a year ago. Going without a medal, as Canada has done the last two years, is out of the question. For fans and hockey officials, the real task is to end a five-year gold medal drought.Groulx understands the pressure, but his message has been to embrace it and thrive off it.We want to play a fast game. Fast on the forecheck, fast with the puck, fast at getting the puck back, he said. Were working on it.You can tell that its not a habit yet on our team, but were showing video to our guys, were talking to them on the ice. Were trying to have it in our drills so our guys can integrate that into their style and have more cohesion on the ice.Groulx is said to be a tough, no-nonsense coach, but also one who excels at making in-game decisions from the bench.Hes been very direct with us, said goalie Zach Fucale. Very honest every time. Hell always tell us the truth, if its at a practice or a game. He really wants us to be at our best.Aside from endorsing Canadian-style, forechecking hockey, Groulx has inteernational experience to enhance his qualifications for the job.ddddddddddddAs a player, he was a scoring centre for the defunct Granby Bisons of the QMJHL and then learned much about the European game playing 11 years of pro hockey in France.He returned in 2000 and spent a year as assistant coach of the Shawinigan Cataractes before landing the head coaching job with the Hull (now Gatineau) Olympiques. His teams won championships in 2003, 2004 and 2008. He was the QMJHL coach of the year in 2004.He also served as assistant to Dave Cameron on a world champion Canadian under-18 squad in 2004, and was an assistant to Sutter for Canadas 7-0-1 dominance of Russia in the 2007 junior Super Series.Groulx was a natural for the head coach position for the 2009 world juniors in Ottawa, but the chance to get on the ladder toward an NHL coaching job proved more attractive.His two years in Rochester were quiet. He missed the playoffs the first year and made them the second. Then Ted Nolan was named vice-president of hockey operations. The two didnt see eye-to-eye and Groulx opted to leave with a year left on his contract and return to Gatineau, his hometown.I learned that when youre going to pro hockey, youre hired by a group of people, and when that group is not there anymore, philosophies change and either youre part of it or you dont fit in, he said. I just thought it was not a good fit and I decided to go back to junior hockey.Also, I had a young kid at home (son Benoit-Olivier, now a promising bantam player) and it was difficult for me to be away from him. The best thing was to go back to junior. If it would have been somewhere (other than Gatineau), I probably would have stayed one more year in Rochester, but having the chance to come back home made the decision easy.It took a few years to get back in the world junior picture, but Hockey Canadas management team decided he deserved another look.When he turned it down, at the time it was disappointing, said Scott Salmond, Hockey Canadas vice-president for national teams. But at the end of the day, hes a good coach.Hes been back in the league and proved himself again, so we welcomed him back last year and this year hes the head coach.Theres still a good chance that Groulx will end up as an NHL coach, but he doesnt want to talk about that with the world juniors about to begin on Boxing Day.Right now my focus is not there at all, he said. Im enjoying this tournament.My goal was to come here, put the best team together, work at it every day and enjoy the process. After this, Im going back to Gatineau and were going to have to get our team better and try to have a long run in the playoffs. I dont look further than that.
