EAST HARTFORD, Conn. Wallace Gilberry Lions Jersey . -- Michigan was making a mess of another game against a heavy underdog, when Desmond Morgan snatched away Connecticuts chance for a huge upset. Morgans one-handed interception in the fourth quarter swung the game Michigans way and the 15th-ranked Wolverines dodged another potentially embarrassing loss with a 24-21 victory against Connecticut on Saturday night. A week after Michigan needed a last-second stand to hold off Akron at the Big House, Brendan Gibbons kicked a 21-yard field goal with 4:36 left to give the Wolverines (4-0) their first lead of the second half. "Were Michigan. We dont play to everyone elses level and for the last two weeks we have. But were going to step it up," defensive end Frank Clark said. Chandler Whitmer threw two touchdown passes and Ty-Meer Brown returned a fumble 34 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter that put UConn (0-3) up 21-7. Quarterback Devin Gardner turned the ball over three times for Michigan and the Wolverines also muffed a punt inside their 10 that led to a UConn touchdown. Fitzgerald Toussaint carried the offence with 120 yards and two touchdowns on 24 carries. Toussaint broke a 35-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, and scored from 12 yards out right after Morgans pick with 9:56 left. Against the Zips, Gardner threw three interceptions and lost a fumble and the Wolverines came away feeling more relieved than victorious. Gardner wasnt much better this week, going 11 for 23 for 97 yards. He ran for 64 yards and a 17-yard touchdown in the first quarter. But his defence had to bail him out, specifically Morgan. After star Connecticut linebacker Yawin Smallwood stopped Gardner short on a fourth-and-2 at the Huskies 22 with 11:23 left in the fourth quarter, the record crowd of 42,704 at Rentschler Field was rocking and starting to believe an upset was in the making. But Morgan made the play of the game and one play later Toussaint swept untouched around the left side to make it 21-21 with 9:49 left. Michigan forced a three-and-out on the next series and got the ball back around midfield, but its drive stalled at the 4 and Gibbons made the short kick to give Michigan a three-point lead with 4:36 left. UConns last drive never had a chance. Michigan pushed the Huskies backward and then they came up a few yards short on a fourth-and-29. UConn, playing without leading receiver Shakim Phillips, managed only 206 yards, 159 passing from Whitmer. The Huskies limped into the most high-profile nonconference home game they have ever played, trying to avoid their first 0-3 start since 2001 and take some heat off third-year coach Paul Pasqualoni. But Michigan had three turnovers in the first half that helped give UConn a 14-7 lead. Turnover No. 4 came on its first possession of the second half and put the Wolverines in a deep hole. Gardner tried to sneak on a third-and-short, but as he slid down the line, he bumped into one of his linemen and the ball popped loose. Brown picked up the ball and had a couple of teammates escort him into the end zone for a 21-7 lead less than 2 minutes into the half. Michigan finally responded with a drive, going 75 yards, the final 35 by Toussaint who made it 21-14 with 5:37 left in the third. The Maize and Blues visit to Rentschler Field was a major event in these parts. Former UConn basketball star Ray Allen made the trip and Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who grew up in Michigan and almost played for the Wolverines, also took in the game from the athletic directors box. On the field, though, the Huskies didnt appear to be in any condition to challenge Michigan, having already lost at home to Towson and Maryland -- at least without help, and Michigan gave it to the Huskies. Gardner threw a first-quarter interception deep in UConn territory. He redeemed himself later with a 17-yard touchdown run to give Michigan a 7-0 lead with 1:52 left in the first. UConn ended the quarter with one first down. But Michigan couldnt take advantage as the Huskies offence sputtered, and the Huskies tied it at 7 with 3:54 left in the half when Whitmer found Spencer Parker, a former walk-on, for an 11-yard touchdown pass. The third Michigan turnover of the half, a bouncing punt that hit off the leg of DaMario Jones while he was looking the other way, gave UConn the ball at the Wolverines 9 and two plays later Whitmer floated a 7-yard TD pass to Lyle McCombs that put the Huskies up 14-7. Gardner didnt complete a pass in the second quarter and for the second straight week Michigan looked disjointed against a heavy underdog. The Wolverines will go into their off week undefeated -- if not satisfied with their play -- and much to work on Lamar Holmes Lions Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Anquan Boldin Lions Jersey . Mats Zuccarello and Derek Stepan scored shootout goals, and backup goalie Cam Talbot earned his second win in two nights as the Rangers shook off a late tying tally and beat the Maple Leafs 2-1 Monday night. http://www.lionsfanspro.com/Black-Rafael-Bush-Lions-Jersey.html?cat=874 . Anthony Calvillo, through 20 CFL seasons, was frequently invincible and largely stoic in the heat of competition. But underneath the professional exterior he was, and is, compellingly human. Consistently one of the top teams in the league, the Bruins have a lot of players that are desirable options in fantasy. Top Picks: While the Bruins arent a high-flying team, but because of the strength of their top lines, they present a lot of players worth taking relatively early in drafts. Patrice Bergeron is a two-way ace and while his scoring numbers are good, what sets Bergeron apart is his plus-minus -- his plus-80 over the last three seasons leads all forwards. Tuukka Rask Not so coincidentally, Bergerons left winger, Brad Marchand ranks second among forwards with a plus-79 rating over the last three years and 67 goals in that time frame ties him with San Joses Joe Pavelski and Vancouvers Alex Burrows, so hes not merely along for the ride. As maligned as Jarome Iginla may have been for his play in Pittsburgh at the end of last season, he had 23 points in 28 (regular season plus playoff) games and his 12 power play points last season were more than anyone on the Bruins. If hes effectively replacing Nathan Horton on the wing with David Krejci and Milan Lucic, thats a pretty good spot for Iginla, with linemates that should complement his game and provide him a good chance to score 30 goals. Another offseason acquisition, winger Loui Eriksson, is coming off a down season, his 0.60 points per game his lowest since 2007-2008, but hes been a consistent produccer, scoring 25 or more goals and 60 or more points in each of the preceding four seasons, so a move to a more competitive team, potentially playing on a line that racks up pluses year after year raises Erikssons appeal. Even though hes 36-years-old and coming off a season in which he scored his fewest points per game (0.40) since 2001-2002, D Zdeno Chara is one of the top handful at his position. Not only does he lead all defencemen in plus-minus over the last three seasons (tied with Bergeron at plus-80), but he ranks fourth among defencemen in goals (33), ninth in points (115) and sixth in penalty minutes (244), so hes a contributor across the board for fantasy purposes. With this ace supporting cast, it turns out that the most valuable Bruins player for fantasy purposes is goaltender Tuukka Rask, who is the unquestioned number one for a likely playoff teamm and, oh, he also has the best save percentage of any goaltender to have played at least 100 games over the last four seasons. Nevin Lawson Lions Jersey. Value Plays: Its certainly possible that C David Krejci could lead the Bruins in scoring -- hes topped 60 points three times -- but his all-around production isnt ideal; good enough to fit as a No. 3 centre in fantasy circles, with some upside if Iginlas arrival gives his line a boost. Sleepers/Breakthrough: No one will be caught by surprise by LW Milan Lucic, who offers a rare combination of scoring and toughness, but hes a sleeper in the sense that he doesnt always play at his ferocious best. That element of risk means not investing too soon in Lucic, but recognizing that he provides upside as a No. 2 or No. 3 left wing. Second-year D Dougie Hamilton is a candidate for a breakthrough season after a solid rookie year, during which he scored 16 points in 42 games. It wouldnt take more than maintaining his status quo per-game production to score more than 30 points this season and if thats coupled with a plus rating, it makes Hamilton a viable fantasy defenceman. For deep leagues that count hits and blocked shots, Dennis Seidenberg offers value because hes been good for 100-plus hits and blocked shots in each of the last four seasons. Rookies: It took a long time for the Bruins to lure 27-year-old Carl Soderberg over from Sweden, and he got a taste of NHL action late last season, but he scored 95 points in 96 games over the last two seasons in the Swedish Elite League and he could upgrade the skill in Boston. The top forward in Providence last season, Ryan Spooner, tallied 57 poitns in 59 AHL games as a first-year pro, earning four games in Boston. He may not have room to crack a scoring line role in Boston, but Spooner could make it difficult to send him down this season. Undersized D Torey Krug made a splash in the playoffs last season, scoring four goals in his first five games, but if he has a chance at some power play time, he could be productive enough to be considered by fantasy owners.
