COLUMBUS, Ohio - By the time players finished scoring a record 29 goals at the NHL all-star game, they agreed that there was one loud, ear-piercing negative: the cannon at Nationwide Arena.I hate the cannon, Philadelphia Flyers captain Claude Giroux said.Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo added that the cannon wasnt his favourite part of the weekend either.The cannon went off more times in one game in the building than ever before, marking goals by the team led by Nick Foligno of the host Columbus Blue Jackets. Team Toews beat Team Foligno 17-12 in the mid-season exhibition featuring many of hockeys top stars playing shinny with no hitting, no defence and no mercy for goaltenders.Thats all were really doing out there is having fun and kind of trying to show our skill at the same time, Chicago Blackhawks winger Patrick Kane said. Kind of feels like summer hockey a little bit where theres a lot of breakaways, a lot of odd-man rushes.And a lot of goals, breaking the record set in 2001 in Denver when North America beat the World 14-12. This one was a wide-open affair in which all but three players registered at least a point.Jakub Voracek of the Philadelphia Flyers had six points on a hat trick and three assists, tying Mario Lemieuxs 1988 record.“I think its a little different, Voracek and Lemieux, right? said Voracek, the former Blue Jackets winger who also leads the NHL in scoring at the all-star break. Three secondary assists. Ill take it, but I wouldnt make a big deal out of it.Despite tying Lemieux, Voracek was not the most valuable player. Hometown star Ryan Johansen received that honour as part of an online fan vote.Joey deserved it the way he handled the weekend, Voracek said. Him and Nick Foligno were under a lot of spotlight. At the skills yesterday and the game today, they did a great job. It was well deserved.John Tavares of the New York Islanders became the sixth player in all-star game history with four goals, joining the elite company of Wayne Gretzky, Mario Lemieux, Vincent Damphousse, Mike Gartner and Dany Heatley. One of his four also went down as the game-winner.Its pretty cool, Tavares said. Its something you dont really think about going into a game like this. You get your opportunities and just was happy to put them in.Most players left happy, including winning captain Jonathan Toews and fellow Canadian Olympian Patrice Bergeron of the Boston Bruins, who each finished with five points. Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury of the Pittsburgh Penguins was less than thrilled with the proceedings.Fleury gave up seven goals on 16 shots in the second period, which was the most scored by one team in that time in the games history. He heard that on television at the second intermission.It was so long, probably the longest 20 minutes of my career, Fleury said in French. We are at this game to have fun, but at one time, it was frustrating. Normally, Ill be quick out of the game way before giving up seven goals.Luongo, who started for Team Toews, said Fleury approached him at the bench early in the second period.He was looking for some comfort words or something from me, Luongo said. He wasnt on my team, so I wasnt going in for him. What are you going to do? Its an all-star game.This was the first all-star game since 2012 in Ottawa, after the lockout forced Columbus to have its opportunity rescheduled and the Sochi Olympics left no room for the festivities. The 2015 all-star weekend might best be remembered for the unveiling of the 2016 World Cup of Hockey, but there were plenty of memorable moments from Friday nights draft and Saturday nights skills competition.The game itself featured a handful of new records: most goals by a team in a game (17) and a period (seven), most combined goals in a period (11) and fastest two, three and four goals scored.If I was a goalie in this game, I would be ... not happy, Zemgus Girgensons of the Buffalo Sabres said.Goalie torment aside, it was a showcase of some of the NHLs best players. The effort wasnt really there, but most players didnt expect it.I was sitting on the bench getting the shakes a little bit, Panthers rookie defenceman Aaron Ekblad said. I was trying not to try too hard. Thats kind of like the thing to do almost. It is hard to do. I got chirped a little bit for trying too hard.Players trying or lack thereof was measured by chips in their jerseys and the puck as the NHL experimented with tracking in a game for the first time. A prototype program could show players shift lengths, top speeds and other things in real time.Its something that could be coming to the league at some point in the future but not before analyzing how it went in the all-star game and figuring out the real implications.Were right in the beginning phases of this, the NHLPAs Mathieu Schneider said Saturday. Well see what comes out of it. Fans and players are excited about it. We can work together to really enlighten a whole new group of people that havent really followed the game.For fans who tuned in just for this all-star game, it didnt enlighten much about real hockey. But ultimately it didnt have to.Not much defence played, the Ottawa Senators Bobby Ryan said. The talent level out there is incredible. Its a heck of an experience.Notes — The teams combined for 92 shots, which was not close to the all-time record. ... Tyler Johnson of the Tampa Bay Lightning missed the game because of a lower-body injury. ... Fall Out Boy played during the first intermission and O.A.R. in the second. ... Next years all-star weekend is in Nashville. Custom Detroit Lions Jerseys . -- First baseman Carlos Pena and outfielder Brennan Boesch have signed minor league deals with the Los Angeles Angels. Tracy Walker Lions Jersey . I kept my eyes focused up on the camera during each approach. I just tried to stay focused on my form, as I didnt know what the ball reaction was. I was quite emotional at the end. I did not actually see any of the shots in the game until I got home and watched the video. http://www.authenticnfllionslockroom.com...r-Elite-Jersey/.

BRUINS STORM BACK TO TAKE GAME TWO The Boston Bruins rallied from a 3-1 deficit, scoring four unanswered goals, to win Game Two, 5-3 over the Montreal Canadiens. DaShawn Hand Lions Jersey . Therrien would not confirm his lineup for the game, but he did have the same line combinations practicing together for the third straight day which is usually a pretty good indication of what the lineup will be. Detroit Lions Jerseys . Al Harrington, another former Knicks forward, scored 22 of his 24 points after halftime for the Nuggets, allowing them to withstand Anthonys attempt to rally the Knicks after his poor shooting had them behind until the final minutes of regulation. Anthony finished with 25 points and 10 rebounds, missing 20 of 30 shots in the Knicks sixth straight loss.MADRID, Spain -- Maria Sharapova avoided an early exit from the Madrid Open on Tuesday, rallying to beat Christina McHale to reach the third round while Roger Federer withdrew from the mens event. Trailing 4-1 in the final set, Sharapova steadied her erratic service game and took command again to beat the 56th-ranked American 6-1, 4-6, 6-4 on clay at the Magic Box tennis centre. The ninth-ranked Russian looked to be cruising before McHale broke late in the second set to tie the match and then took her commanding lead in the final set after breaking Sharapova. However, Sharapova didnt surrender a point after that as McHale netted to be broken to see her advantage dip to 4-3, and Sharapova eventually fired an ace down the middle to eliminate McHale for the second year running. "After a really good start (in Madrid) I didnt keep that level. I think I had a bit of a letdown," said 2013 finalist Sharapova, who is coming off a tournament victory in Stuttgart. Earlier, Li Na continued her recent dominance of Zheng Jie by easing into the third round 6-2, 6-3 for her fourth straight victory against her fellow Chinese player. Zheng hasnt won a set from the second-ranked Li since her last victory in 2006. Lucie Safarova of the Czech Republic also advanced with a 6-1, 6-2 win over Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia, while American Sloane Stephens was also a winner. Federer pulled out of the Masters Series event to spend more time with his family as his wife awaits the birth of another child. The fourth-seeded Swiss player is the second big name to withdraw after Novak Djokovic pulled out becaause of a wrist injury.dddddddddddd Polands Lukasc Kubot takes Federers place to face Gilles Simon of France. David Ferrer struggled through Madrids high altitude and a bout of nerves to pull out a 7-6 (6), 5-7, 6-3 victory over Spanish countryman Albert Ramos. Ferrer saved four set points as he won five straight points to take the first set tiebreak, clinching the lead with a crosscourt forehand smash. After being broken to trail 6-5 in the second set, Ferrer reeled off four straight errors for his 115th-ranked opponent to even it before eventually pulling through in just under three hours. But it wasnt without repeated scenes of frustration when he mumbled to himself and his entourage nearby. "You say things when youre nervous in the match that you dont have a feel for. You can write a book about a match," said Ferrer about his motivation, before referring to thinner air and its effect on the ball. "The first day is not easy. You miss more, but thats all." Fabio Fogninis recent struggles on Spanish clay continued as the 13th-seeded Italian lost 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 to Ukraines Alexandr Dolgopolov. Fognini failed to get out of the second round at Barcelona last month. Nicolas Almagro will play Andy Murray next after finally dispensing with Andrey Golubev of Kazakhstan, 6-3, 6-7 (9), 7-6 (4) with his 11th match point. Other second round winners included Canadas Milos Raonic, Ernests Gulbis of Latvia, South Africas Kevin Anderson, Igor Sijsling of the Netherlands, and Juan Monaco of Argentina -- who goes on to play defending champion Rafael Nadal on Wednesday.
