ENGLEWOOD, Colo. Nate Washington Patriots Jersey . -- Patrick Roy got into a screaming match with an opposing coach, pushed over a glass partition, received a game misconduct and was reprimanded by the NHL. Quite an eventful start to his coaching career with the Colorado Avalanche. His fiery temper definitely has followed him from the goal to the bench. On Wednesday, Roy lost his cool shortly after the final horn in a 6-1 win over Anaheim, yelling at Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau and then pounding on the glass partition separating the two benches with so much force that it began to tilt. The league punished Roy for his outburst with a $10,000 fine on Thursday and a reminder that this sort of behaviour wont be tolerated. "Roys actions at the conclusion of the game were irresponsible," said Colin Campbell, NHL senior executive vice-president of hockey operations. "One of the responsibilities of an NHL coach is to help diffuse volatile situations on the bench." What set the Hall of Fame goalie off was a knee-to-knee hit between rookie Nathan MacKinnon and Ducks defenceman Ben Lovejoy late in the game. Roy thought Lovejoys hit was unnecessary and couldve been avoided. "I guess I have to change a few things. I got the $10,000 fine by the league for that," Roy said after practice. "I understand it now. At the same time, I will always defend my players." And thats appreciated. "It just shows that he cares about his players a lot," said MacKinnon, the No. 1 pick in the draft over the summer. "Hes very passionate and hell stand up for what he believes in and not really think about the circumstances or the criticism." Even a day later, Roy was still a little bit worked up. Sure, the hit remained a sore subject, but so were comments Boudreau made about him after the game. Boudreau called Roys antics "bush league" and added that "(Roy is) going to be in for a long year, if hes going to yell at every player and yell at the refs at every stoppage of play. Its not the way the game is played." Roy fumed over the assertion. "I didnt talk to players until that moment. During the game, I dont talk to the players. I dont talk to the referees," Roy said. "What Boudreau said was all lies. Im not going to get too involved in this one but to be honest when you talk about classless -- when youre lying, this is classless." This could be a very entertaining season with Roy on the bench. "Hes very passionate," said forward Alex Tanguay, who played alongside Roy when the Avalanche won the 2001 Stanley Cup title. "The emotion and intensity of a first game probably got to him a little bit at the end. Hes fine." The Avs are certainly feeding off his energy this year as they try to turn around a franchise thats missed the playoffs the last three seasons. "Were a passionate group and it starts with the guy behind the bench," Jamie McGinn said. "Hes really passionate about this game. He wants to win and it carries over." Overshadowed by the melee at the end was the performance of MacKinnon. Just a shade over 18 years old, he had two assists to become the youngest NHL player to record two or more points in a game since 1944, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. "There are some things I need to do better," MacKinnon said. "A couple passes, but I mean, there are a lot of things I can work on as well." Just the attitude Roy appreciates. "This is an opportunity there for him and he needs to be himself," Roy said. "With time, hell play a larger role on our team." Thats why he came to MacKinnons defence when he was hit by Lovejoy. "I think it was what needed to be done," Roy said. "The incident with Lovejoy going after Nathan at the end of the game, I thought that was something that was inappropriate. "This is the way I dealt with this one. Will I deal with it differently next time? Maybe. Or maybe not." NOTES: Captain Gabe Landeskog missed practice Thursday with a leg injury. Roy said hes being examined by a doctor. ... On Friday, MacKinnon will face good friend Seth Jones, the fourth overall pick by Nashville in June. Jones was drawn to the game in part because of Hall of Famer Joe Sakics influence when Jones father, Popeye, once suited up for the Denver Nuggets. "Its going to be fun to play against him," MacKinnon said. Matthew Slater Patriots Jersey . LOUIS -- Roman Polak was celebrating even before Alexander Steen scored the winning goal in Saturdays 4-2 win over the Carolina Hurricanes. Logan Ryan Jersey .

Oyama had six birdies and two bogeys at Kintetsu Kashikojima in the event also sanctioned by the Japan LPGA Tour.

He scored two highlight-reel goals in a three-minute span -- the second on a sideways bicycle kick in the 78th minute -- to give the Whitecaps a 2-2 draw with the Portland Timbers before a crowd of 20,303 at B.C. Place Stadium. "I thought we played very well, and if we continue to play the same way the next three games well have a very good chance," said Camilo who moved into a tie for second place in MLS scoring with his 17th and 18th goals of the season. "Its disappointing (having to come back), but the game was not over so we tried to attack and we were able to score." With only three games left in the regular season, the Whitecaps (11-11-9) helped keep their flickering playoff hopes alive by obtaining the single point, but with the L.A. Galaxy beating Chivas U.S.A. earlier in the day, the draw dropped Vancouver to six points out of the last playoff spot in the Western Conference. The Timbers (12-5-14) missed a chance to move into second place in the West despite extending their unbeaten streak to five games. Camilos tying marker capped a string of three goals in as many minutes. The Vancouver strikers two tallies sandwiched one by Portlands Will Johnson. Even Portland goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts was impressed with Camilos second tally. "That was a special goal," said Ricketts with a broad smile even though his club was forced to settle for just one point. Darlington Nagbe scored for Portland in the first half. He and Johnson, the captain of Canadas national mens team, assisted on each others goals. "Were disappointed that we didnt earn three points," said Portland defender Jack Jewsbury. "But at the end of the day, youve got to congratulate Camilo on two unbelievable, world-class goals." Camilos first goal came in the 76th minute as he sent a dipping and diving free kick over a Portland wall and bouncing inside the left post to create a 1-1 tie. But with the crowd still cheering, Johnson fired in a Nagbe pass from the top of the Vancouver 18-yard box. However, moments later, with some in the crowd still groaning, Camilo scored as he went airborne to boot home a pass from Young-Pyo Lee. Darren Mattocks started the play by sending the ball to Lee. "It was a little wild. I havent had a game like that in a while," said Jewsbury, having trouble recalling another one like it. "(There were) some good plays, some unbelievable strikes." Camilo made good on two additional chances after he and second-half substitute Kekuta Manneh were robbed by Ricketts on back-to-back chances in the 75th minute. After foiling Camilo from within 12 yards, Ricketts got up to get his arms on Mannehs shot off the rebound. But the entertaining finish was muted by the fact the Caps still face a difficult battle to secure a second consecutive playoff berth. Jimmy Garoppolo Patriots Jersey. "Obviously, youre disappointed that you didnt get all three (points), because I thought we deserved (a win) tonight," said Vancouver captain Jay DeMerit, who had called the game a "must-win" a day earlier. "But a point is a point." The eventful second half contrasted from a quiet opening 45 minutes as the Whitecaps struggled to adjust to lineup changes and the Timbers took their time getting going. Vancouver striker Kenny Miller missed his second straight game with a groin injury. As a result, Mattocks made a rare start. Whitecaps coach Martin Rennie also juggled his lineup by keeping midfielders Russell Teibert and Gershon Koffie on the bench as Matt Watson and Daigo Kobabayashi started in their place. Teibert came on in the second half, but struggled with his crosses. Nagbe opened the scoring in the 41st minute as, left unmarked outside the top of the Vancouver area, he took a pass from Johnson and fired a shot inside the left post beyond the reach of leaping Vancouver goalkeeper David Ousted. "It was just a really good strike," said DeMerit. "It was probably 25, 30 yards out. As a defender, youre supposed to close right about then. As he started to wind up, he saw us coming out to get the ball, but it was a great shot, curling away from (Ousted), so he didnt really have much chance to save it." Camilos heroics overshadowed a strong game from Johnson, who showed a strong midfield presence that Vancouver has lacked for most of the season after failing to woo the Toronto native in the off-season before he joined Portland from Real Salt Lake. "(Johnson) is a fantastic talent, a guy that weve counted on a lot this year," said Jewsbury. "Hes probably one of the most talented guys Ive ever played with. a He had a big game." With Wednesdays game in Seattle and home-and-home contests against Colorado to close out the regular season, the Whitecaps will still have a difficult time fulfilling their playoff quest. But, while acknowledging the difficulty, Vancouver goalkeeper Ousted remained optimistic. "We showed great character today, and I think that bodes well for the future," he said. Notes: Mattocks has a difficult decision whether to leave Monday as scheduled for international duty with Jamaicas nation team or travel to Seattle with the Caps. Jamaica has a World Cup qualifying game against the U.S. on Friday. Mattocks said its "50-50" whether he will leave or stay. a During the pre-game ceremonies, players from both teams wore shirts bearing pink ribbons in support of breast cancer research. Some Whitecap players and game officials also wore pink wrist bands, while Ousted wore a pink jersey, shorts and socks, as he has done previously. A pink-striped ball was also used. a Portland goalkeeper Ricketts was cautioned in the 74th minute as he wasted time before attempting a free kick. Wholesale Jerseys China ' ' '
