es territory because Burns couldnt get the play of Antworten

SASKATOON -- The London Knights didnt get much time to celebrate their second straight Ontario Hockey League title. The club will be on the ice for the opener of the 2013 MasterCard Memorial Cup against the host Saskatoon Blades on Friday night, just four days after beating the Barrie Colts in a dramatic Game 7. The Knights got a goal from Bo Horvat -- which required a lengthy video review -- with less than a second remaining in the third period to clinch the title. London head coach Dale Hunter expects his team to come out flying as the franchise looks to win its second Canadian Hockey League title. "Thats what hockeys all about. You get three or four days rest and theyre kids," Hunter said at the coaches media availability on Wednesday night. "If youre a hockey player all you want to do is play games so I think theyll be anxious to play." The Knights still feel the sting of last seasons final game, a 2-1 overtime loss to the host Shawinigan Cataractes in the Memorial Cup final. "You cant forget about things like that. We wanted to win that game but at the same time weve used it to our advantage all year," Knights forward Max Domi said after Thursdays practice at the Credit Union Centre. "Going out every game, every shift with that feeling of losing and wanting to get back here. You cant think about it too much and let it dictate how you play but were back here now and we want to make that happen." Hunter, who also owns the team, left the Knights bench 26 games into last season to take a job with the Washington Capitals. He had a 30-23-7 record with Washington and upset the defending Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins in the first round before bowing out in the Eastern Conference semifinals. He returned from his NHL stint to find a roster in London loaded with talent that was hungry to get back to the national tournament. "You win your league, which is tough, and then you lose in overtime which makes it tough," Hunter said. "Definitely the older guys that were there are eager to get back to try to win it this year." The other participants at the round-robin tournament are the Halifax Mooseheads of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and the Portland Winterhawks of the Western Hockey League. The Knights are led offensively by Horvat and Domi, who are ranked 15th and 19th among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting ahead of Junes draft. Horvat had 33 goals and 28 assists in 67 regular-games before adding 23 points (16G, 7A) in 21 playoff games. Domi, meanwhile, had 39 goals and 48 assists in 64 regular-season games before adding 33 points (11G, 21A) in 21 post-season contests. Another player to watch on the Knights is Russian defenceman Nikita Zadorov. The 22nd ranked North American skater had six goals, 19 assists and tied Domi for the team lead at plus-33 in the regular season. On the goaltending front, Hunter has yet to name either Anthony Stolarz or Jake Patterson as his starter, although the latter finished the series against the Colts. Regardless of who gets the call in goal, the Knights head into the tournament a confident bunch thats looking to take care of some unfinished business. "It was pretty special to be a part of this last year," Domi said. "Its the best junior players in the world. Its a lot of fun. We didnt win last year so were back for more." Note: The Knights have been selected to host the 2014 Memorial Cup, beating out the Barrie Colts and the Windsor Spitfires.

"Trying to breathe," he said with a grin. Bernier stopped 42 of 43 shots on Monday night, including all 22 in a hectic middle frame, his heroic performance propelling the Leafs toward an undue point in their final game before the Christmas break.SEATTLE -- Washington honored the players who won the 1991 national championship team at halftime Friday night. They ambled out on the FieldTurf at Husky Stadium, 65 middle-aged men who looked nothing like a No. 1 team.The 10th-ranked guys in purple who embarrassed No. 7 Stanford, 44-6, however, might have something to say about the College Football Playoff.Do not refresh this page -- that score is correct, the largest margin of victory over a top-10 team in Washington history. It reflects the complete dominance that the Huskies exerted over the Cardinal on both sides of the line, in the kicking game, in time of possession and every other way you can measure two teams on the same field.That was special, Washington head coach Chris Petersen said. Im really proud of how hard they played, how good they played. Were still a work in progress, but that was a good step forward.You could say that. Washington scored quick and scored slow. The Huskies gained two yards (424) for every one they allowed (213). They held Stanford junior Christian McCaffrey to 49 yards on 12 carries, and it might have been the best 49-yard game in the history of Heisman candidates. When the Stanford offensive line wasnt busy not opening holes for McCaffrey, they were giving up eight sacks of Ryan Burns (six) and Keller Chryst (two).McCaffrey being McCaffrey, he still finished with 223 all-purpose yards. But if you keep returning kickoffs, that means the other team is scoring. McCaffrey returned a total of three kickoffs in Stanfords first three games. He returned five Friday night for 144 yards, including a 57-yarder.Those kids were playing really inspired ball by the energy in that stadium, Petersen said of his team. They were excited to play Stanford, but it hasnt been like that since Ive been here (three seasons).This was Husky Stadium from the glory years, the noise bouncing off the metal overhangs on each grandstand and sounding like the Boeing jets for which this area is known.I mean, its been loud, said Washington junior safety Budda Baker, who grew up in nearby Bellevue, but that was some other type of loud. That was Seahawks-type loud.The crowd of 72,027, the biggest since Washington opened the renovated stadium three years ago, reveled in the Huskies dominance, a callback to this programs glory days in the early 1990s.Hey, anyone can have a bad quarter-century. Washington did have that Rose Bowl season in 2000, when the Huskies finished No. 3. What followed was a steady slide into oblivion, bottoming out with an 0-12 record in 2008. Steve Sarkisian returned the Huskies to respectability before he bolted for USC after five seasons.And now, in his third season on Montlake, Petersen has built a team that looks aa lot like his Boise State teams, the ones that went 92-12 (.dddddddddddd85) and won two BCS bowls in eight seasons.I think these guys, our team, has a lot to em, Petersen said. Those are the flashes weve been seeing, feeling for a long time. Its nice when it all kind of comes together at home in this environment. I think it was really cool that the 91 team was here.Stanford endured a complete meltdown. The Cardinal made glaring physical and mental mistakes in all three phases of the game, and it didnt help that Stanford lost four starters to injury last week.Well, that was about as poorly as we could play from start to finish, Stanford coach David Shaw said.Like having to call timeout on fourth down during two possessions in Huskies territory because Burns couldnt get the play off.Like Stanford left tackle A.T. Hall, perhaps not hearing the snap count, never coming out of his stance as defensive end Joe Mathis ran around him and smashed into Burns.Like Huskies wide receiver John Ross racing through the depleted Cardinal secondary unimpeded, except for the two plays on which Stanford interfered with him. Ross made four catches for 82 yards and caught one of Jake Brownings three touchdowns. Both Cardinal starting cornerbacks missed the game because of injury, and Ross, the junior with 4.3 speed, kept plenty of space between him and the guys who could play.Like finally forcing a Washington punt in the third quarter, which hit Stanford blocker Ben Edwards in the back, allowing the Huskies Lavon Coleman to recover it at the Stanford 40. Washington scored five plays later to go ahead 30-0.Washington even won the coin toss.Honestly, its still kind of sinking in, said defensive tackle Elijah Qualls, who made five tackles. Ive definitely never been on the field when the crowd rushed it, so that was kind of interesting. I almost got run over.The fans tumbled onto the turf to celebrate knocking off the team that has won three of the past four Pac-12 titles. Washington has seven regular-season games left, beginning next week with a visit to historic rival Oregon. The Huskies leave this game in charge of the Pac-12 North, but Petersen doesnt want to hear anything about this performance announcing the arrival of an old power. He is leaving Saturday morning to recruit. It is back to business as usual. It has to be.Were not there, Petersen said. Im not saying were there. I know how this thing goes. You sleep on anybody, feeling like we got it, we got it figured out. I know what comes next.Not if the Huskies play as they did Friday night. They looked like the Huskies of old. ' ' '
