    The New Jersey Devils finally gave Cory Schneider a break against one of the top-scoring teams in the league, and it didnt end particularly well. Jean Segura Jersey . Coach Peter DeBoers No. 1 goaltender will be back in net tonight when New Jersey completes a four-game Canadian road trip against Schneiders former team, the Vancouver Canucks, who have also been among the NHLs best offensive clubs. Catch all the action on TSN Radio 1040 starting at 5pm pt. The Canucks offense continued to produce with Sundays 4-1 home win over Chicago. Theyre second among West teams with 3.00 goals per game, up from last seasons 2.33 mark that ranked last in the conference. We do all the little things you have to do to be successful, left wing Daniel Sedin told the teams official website. Everyone is buying in. Its a lot of fun when you can do that. No one feels the pressure to score each and every game, but everyone knows they can do it. Schneider ceded starting responsibility to Scott Clemmensen for the first time this season Saturday, and the Devils (9-9-3) suffered a 5-4 shootout loss to Calgary - the only West team scoring more than Vancouver. New Jersey is 3-6-1 with 2.00 goals per game over the last three weeks after averaging 2.91 during a 6-3-2 start, but the latest loss had more to do with being unable to hold a series of two-goal leads. The Devils led 2-0 after the first period, 3-1 after the second and 4-2 midway through the third but surrendered two goals in the final 2 1/2 minutes. Its disappointing, DeBoer told the teams official Twitter feed. Thats a game we shouldve won. I thought we had a dozen chances to extend the lead. Schneider has been quite strong lately with a 1.41 goals-against average and two shutouts over a 3-2-0 stretch. This would be his third matchup with Vancouver, where he spent his first five seasons, after suffering losses in overtime and a shootout in October 2013 with a 2.36 GAA. Those games extended the Canucks current winning streak in the series to five, on which theyve allowed just seven goals. Vancouver (14-6-1) was in line with that kind of defensive effort against the Blackhawks, while Jannik Hansen had the first three-goal game of his career. Hansen has scored in three straight games, and his eight goals overall put him halfway to his top single-season total. We strive this year to make it a four-line team, Hansen said. Its not a matter of one, two, three, four. Everyone knows (Daniel and Henrik Sedin) are going to get their matchup every night. After that its up to the nine other guys to supply the secondary scoring. As long as we can do that weve got a chance to win games. Newcomer Radim Vrbata also scored and has four goals in three games while playing with the Sedins. Vrbata leads the team with 10 goals and has 13 points in his last 10 games against New Jersey. Fellow newcomer Ryan Miller hasnt been quite as effective with a 2.63 GAA, though he has a league-best 13-3-0 record among No. 1 goaltenders thanks greatly to Vancouvers consistent scoring. Hes been considerably better in his last 11 matchups against New Jersey, going 7-2-2 with a 1.54 GAA. Neither goalie will be facing a particularly effective power play. Vancouver is in a 2-for-20 slump, and New Jersey is 3 for 27 in its last 10. The Devils penalty kill, however, has thrived with a 25-for-26 mark over their past six. Canucks defenseman Dan Hamhuis (lower-body injury) sat out Sunday, while forward Alexandre Burrows (upper body) returns tonight.

The 38-year-old quarterback rallied the Hamilton Tiger-Cats from a 14-point deficit en route to a wild 36-24 win over the Toronto Argonauts in the East Division final Sunday afternoon. Burris cut Torontos half-time lead to 24-17 with a late TD strike, then led Hamilton to a 27-24 advantage heading into the fourth. After watching Argos star quarterback Ricky Ray tear it up in the first half, Burris outperformed Ray in the second to lead Hamilton to its first Grey Cup berth since 99. "Somebody pinch me, I still think Im dreaming right now," Burris said. "For the past four years Ive been through a lot, guys. "One organization told me, basically, I wasnt good enough and traded me to Hamilton. And during the course of this year people doubted what I could do and to come out here with our team and accomplish this is huge." Burriss 14-yard TD pass to Greg Ellingson capped a 68-yard march to open the second half and made it 24-24. Burris then drove Hamilton to set up Luca Congis 23-yard field goal for a 27-24 lead entering the fourth. Burris was especially cool when Hamilton took possession at its own 38 with 6:55 remaining. He marched the Ticats to the Toronto 14-yard line -- hitting Bakari Grant on a key 25-yard completion on second-and-19 -- to set up Congis 20-yard boot to make it 30-24 with 1:14 remaining. Ray marched Toronto from its 35 to the Hamilton 44 before turning the ball over on downs with 53 seconds remaining. Chad Owens fielded Josh Bartels punt on the games final play but fumbled with Ticats special-teams star Marc Beswick recovering in the end zone. Burriss heroics came before a raucous Rogers Centre gathering of 35,418 -- that included embattled Toronto Mayor Rob Ford -- for the first East final between the longtime rivals since 86. Thats the largest CFL attendance in the facility since over 50,000 spectators witnessed Torontos 35-22 win over Calgary in the 100th Grey Cup game last November. Much like Torontos historic Grey Cup win, the atmosphere inside Rogers Centre on Sunday was electric. Horns blared loudly throughout, Ticats supporters, who clearly outnumbered their Toronto counterparts, chanted the traditional "Argos Suck" refrain while the Double Blue faithful countered with "Lets Go Argos." "It was unbelievable our fan support," Ticats coach Kent Austin said. "I thought we were playing at home." Burris was the CFLs outstanding player with Calgary in 2010 but was replaced by Drew Tate as the starter the following season. The Stampeders dealt Burris to Hamilton and although Burris was the leagues leading passer in 2011, the Ticats struggled to a 6-12 record. Hamilton opened 2013 with a new coach (Austin), a plethora of youngsters and having to play its home games in Guelph, Ont., while a new stadium was being built. Burris again led the CFL in passing this year and guided the Ticats (10-8) to second in the East behind front-running Toronto (11-7). Burris was a key figure in Hamiltons 19-16 overtime East semifinal win over Montreal last weekend, engineering a key 97-yard TD march into a brisk wind. Backup Dan LeFevours two-yard touchdown run in OT clinched the victory. Burris was just 10-of-19 passing for 144 yards and two TDs but Ray was the story of the opening half. He was 17-of-20 passing for 279 yards and two TDs in staking the defending Grey Cup champions to their lead. Austin said the turning points were llate in the first half and early in the second when the Ticats captured momentum with their two TD drives. Nelson Cruz Jersey. "I cant state the importance of them," Austin said. "Once we evened it up it was like a 0-0 game, it was just who could outplay who the rest of the game." Argos head coach Scott Milanovich agreed. "We werent able to keep the momentum going," he said. "The turning point in the game felt like the end second quarter when we had a nice lead. "I felt like we had the game where we wanted it. Then as good teams do, they made a run and closed the gap and then scored again to start the second half." And it was Hamiltons offence outplaying Torontos as Burris was 17-of-21 passing for 227 yards in the second half while Ray was just 5-of-12 for 50. "I thought Ricky was in a great rhythm early in the game," Milanovich said. "As well as we had played offensively in the first half I thought we left points off the board. "The second half, its just the momentum of the football game. We have a couple of two and outs, they get moving offensively and next thing you know its the fourth quarter and were down." Overall, Burris finished 27-of-40 passing for 371 yards and three TDs and also added 51 yards rushing on five carries. Hamiltons Andy Fantuz had 11 catches for 114 yards and two TDs. "Nobody gave us a chance this year due to all factors we had to deal with going to Guelph, having so many things change from last year to this year and with so many young players," Burris said. "Nobody on this team is focused on winning a championship, ring, money, none of that. "All you hear guys saying is they want to spend one more week together and when you have a group thatll do whatever it takes to make sure we can spend that time and create more memories, thats when you know you have something special." Ray was 22-of-32 passing overall for 329 yards with two TDs as Torontos offence had the ball for just 20 minutes nine seconds in the contest. Slotback Andre Durie had three catches for 114 yards. "They gave me different looks in the second half and put more pressure on us," Ray said. "We had the lead and couldnt get it together. "Its hard to get this close and not get it done . . . well be thinking about this all off-season." Hamilton will face the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the Grey Cup game next Sunday in Regina as the Riders upset Calgary 35-13 in the West Division final. It will be a homecoming for Burris and Austin. Burris is a former Riders starter while Austin led Saskatchewan to Grey Cup wins as a quarterback (89) and head coach (07). Hamilton heads into the Grey Cup on a roll, having won 11 of its last 15 games. The Ticats also continued Torontos home woes as the Argos were 4-5 at Rogers Centre during the regular season, the first time in CFL history a team had finished first in a division with a losing home record. Spencer Watt, with two, and Zach Collaros had the Toronto touchdowns. Swayze Waters had a field goal and three converts. Congi booted two field goals and three converts. NOTES -- Rookie defensive back Delvin Breaux, receiver Onrea Jones and running back Chevon Walker were among Hamiltons pre-game scratches. One of Torontos scratches was receiver Romby Bryant . . . This marked the first time ever Burris and Ray had gone head-to-head in a division final . . . Linebacker Brandon Isaac and defensive back Evan McCollough were members of Torontos Grey Cup-winning squad last year. Cheap Jerseys Throwback Wholesale NFL Hoodies Cheap NFL Womens Jerseys Wholesale NFL Camo Jerseys Wholesale NFL Autographed Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Throwback China NFL Jerseys ' ' '
