The Los Angeles Kings hope to get off to a better start in Game 2 at San Jose, as they try to even up the Western Conference quarterfinals in Sundays road clash against the Sharks. Nike Air Max Pas Cher Belgique . San Jose claimed Game 1 on home ice by a 6-3 score, but that was after carrying a 5-0 advantage into the third period. Los Angeles will try to build off its strong finish in Game 1, as it attempts to avoid falling into an 0-2 hole before the series shifts to Southern California for Games 3 and 4. Already holding a 1-0 lead after Joe Thornton scored just over three minutes into the game, Tomas Hertl and Patrick Marleau tallied 48 seconds apart late in San Joses three-goal first period. Raffi Torres, playing in his first game since March 8, added a goal in the second period and Marc-Edouard Vlasic made it 5-0 later in the middle stanza. After the Kings made their push in the third, Brent Burns sealed the win for San Jose with an empty-net goal in the final minute of regulation. Burns, Hertl and Vlasic each finished with a goal and assist, while James Sheppard picked up a pair of helpers. Hertl, who had 15 goals and 10 assists in 37 games during his rookie campaign this year, became the first player in Sharks history to record multiple points in his postseason debut . Antti Niemi recorded 31 saves for the Sharks, who were bounced from last years playoffs by the Kings in seven games in the conference semifinals. "Obviously were a little disappointed in the way we responded there (in the third), but for the most part, it was a real good game on our behalf," Sharks head coach Todd McLellan said. Jake Muzzin, Trevor Lewis and Slava Voynov supplied the goals for Los Angeles, which saw goaltender Jonathan Quick chased after giving up five goals on 28 shots. Martin Jones stopped all four shots he faced in relief for the Kings. "Its a series and every chance you get to finish a check, rub a guy out, make it harder on them, tire them down, it pays dividends later," Kings captain Dustin Brown said of his teams play at the end of Game 1. "We needed a third period like that." Although Quick was pulled from Game 1, the proven postseason performer will get the start in Game 2. Quick won the Conn Smythe Trophy when the Kings won the Stanley Cup in 2012 and boasts a 29-22 record and a .927 save percentage over 51 career playoff games. In order to even the series at 1-1, Los Angeles needs to pick up a rare win at San Joses SAP Center. Including the playoffs, the Kings have lost 11 of their last 12 games on the road against the Sharks. In last springs playoff encounter, the home team won every game, but unlike 2013, San Jose holds home- ice advantage in this series. The Kings will host Game 3 on Tuesday, with the fourth meeting set for Thursday at Staples Center. Air Max a Vendre En Belgique . Blatter, a 75-year-old Swiss executive who has been in office since 1998, was handed a final four-year term as head of footballs governing body in a vote at FIFAs congress. He won 186 votes out of 203 ballots. Nike Air Max Outlet Belgique . -- LeGarrette Blount wasnt satisfied with three short touchdown runs, not against a team coming off the second greatest comeback in playoff history.A little more than a month into his tenure as USCs interim head coach and Ed Orgeron has earned a chance to stay beyond this season. The turnaround at Southern California has been nothing short of remarkable. This past week, USC went to Corvallis, Ore. and beat the Beavers, 31-14. It was USCs first win at Reser Stadium since 2004. Trojans QB Cody Kessler was an efficient 17-of-21 for 247 yards with a touchdown and one interception. Standout wide receiver Marquise Lee returned from injury to score a 71-yard touchdown on SCs first play, running back Javorius Allen shredded Oregon State for 133 yards and three majors, and Silas Redd added another 140 yards on the ground. On the other side of the ball, the Trojan defence was just as lethal. USC held Oregon State to 369 total yards, and the Beavers went just 2-for-11 on third downs. QB Sean Mannion, who led the nation in passing coming in with a 30-to-3 touchdown-to-interception ratio, threw for just 277 yards, and a season-worst three interceptions. The Trojans are 3-1 under Orgeron, and 3-0 in conference play. A defensive line coach for most of his career, Orgerons team is eighth in the nation with 29 sacks, ranks 13th in rushing defence, and sits 12th in total defence allowing just over 230 yards per game. Now the Trojans are 6-3 and Bowl-eligible, something that seemed out of the realm of possibility when Lane Kiffin was fired in the wee hours of September 29th. With games remaining against Cal, Stanford, Colorado and UCLA, its likely the Trojans will finish 8-5, and even plausible they could finish 9-3. Outside of Kiffins Bowl-banned 10-2 season, 9-3 would be the Trojans best record since the Pete Carroll era. And with a 3-2 conference record, USC is still very much alive in the Pac-12 South. Coach "O" has a history at Southern California. He was the Trojans defensive line coach from 1998 to 2004, and as Carrolls top assistant, became the programs recruiting coordinator. Following USCs back-to-back AP National Championships, he got the chance to go out on his own. In 2004, Orgeron took the head coaching job at Ole Miss, and in three seasons in Oxford, Miss., led the Rebels to a disappointing 10-25 record. Now back at the Coliseum, its a wiser Orgeron whos learned from his failures thats roaming the sidelines. Harkening back to the Carroll era, hes fostered the loose, rah-rah atmosphere at USC that disappeared under Kiffin. He shortened practices, and opened them up to the LA media. Unlike Kiffin, Orgeron increased media access and has shied away from talking about sanctions. He took away yellow practice jerseys from quarterbacks, eliminating barriers between teammates, and even brought cookies back to team meals, previously banned under Kiffin. Grossiste Air Max Belgique. When Kiffin was fired, Orgeron was the longest of shots to become the permanent head coach. One month and a 3-0 conference record later, and he deserves to be the frontrunner. Some other notes from around the NCAA: Is there any turnaround more stunning than Auburns? Last season, the Tigers were 3-9, and 0-8 in the SEC. This season, Auburn has won five straight games and sports an 8-1 record. The offence has scored 41 touchdowns in nine games, after scoring just 24 all of last year. Ninth in the BCS standings, Auburns Iron Bowl date with Alabama looms large. Win, and the Tigers could get an SEC title shot. A remarkable turnaround in the programs first year under Gus Malzahn. There may be no hotter player in the country than QB Jordan Lynch. Last week in the Huskies rout of UMass, the senior threw for a touchdown, and ran for four more. The week before, Northern Illinois pivot threw for four touchdowns, rushed for one, and even caught one against Eastern Michigan. In the last three games, Lynch has been responsible for 14 total touchdowns running and passing. Thats more than 106 teams have scored in any way over that same span. Even playing in a conference like the MAC, Lynch deserves serious consideration from Heisman voters. Logan Thomas season of disappointment continues at Virginia Tech. Thomas turned the ball over four times in the Hokies 34-27 loss to Boston College last week. It was Techs second loss in as many weeks, and Thomas has now thrown 11 touchdowns to 12 interceptions on the season. The senior leads the FBS with 33 turnovers since the start of last season, a remarkable fact for a former 4-star recruit. Most concerning for Frank Beamers team, the Hokies are 10-12 when Thomas throws an interception, 14-0 when he doesnt. The performance of Michigan States defence in last Saturdays 29-6 win over Michigan was simply historic. The Spartans held the Wolverines to 168 total yards en route to Michigans worst loss in the rivalry since 1967. On the strength of seven sacks, Michigan finished with minus 48 yards rushing, their worst output on the ground in the history of the program. Even without the sacks, MSU held the Wolverines to just a single yard on 22 carries. Michigan State leads the nation in total defence, and ranks 3rd and 4th in scoring and passing, respectively. Theyre allowing 43.4 yards rushing per game, a number that isnt just best in the country, but would also be tied for best in the last decade. With a 5-0 mark in the Big Ten, and an 8-1 record on the season, the Spartans should be headed to the conference championship, setting up an intriguing matchup with Ohio State.
