Chinas Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo seized the pairs lead after the short programme over compatriots Pang Quing and Tong Jian at the Four Continents figure skating championships. Wholesale MLB Jerseys . Shen Xue and Zhao Hongbo compete in the pairs short program during the ISU Four Continents Figure Skating Championships at the World Arena in Colorado Springs, Colorado. [AFP] Shen and Zhao, two-time world champions who earned bronze at the 2006 Olympics, nailed their triple toe loops and landed their big throw triple loop. Their only miscue came on their triple twist, when he caught her too close to his body and put her down hard on the ice. It was not a big deal, but we were conservative about it, Shen said. I regret that because our score would have been higher, probably over 70, if we had gone for it. Even with that flaw, they finished with a score of 69.29 points, almost 3.5 ahead of world champions Pang and Tong. Pang and Tong landed their triple toe loop, triple twist and throw triple loop en route to a score of 65.80. Their performance came despite the fact that their training is still disrupted by Pangs ongoiong recovery from kidney inflammation, while Tong is still recovering from injuries suffered in a car crash. It is better than it was, but Im still not fully recovered, Pang said. We need to take breaks in practice. My stamina is still not so good. Americans Rena Inoue and John Baldwin, the defending pairs champions, were lying third after a short programme that included their throw triple Axel. Canadas Olympic bronze medallist Jeffrey Buttle took the lead in the mens competition despite a flawed triple axel in his short programme. Despite touching the ice with his hand on the jump, Buttle scored 77.72 points to lead Americans Jeremy Abbott (74.34) and Ryan Bradley (68.83). In ice dance, Canadians Marie-France Dubreuil and Patrice Lauzon captured the lead after the compulsory dance ahead of Americans Tanith Belbin and Benjamin Agosto. Americans Meryl Davis and Charlie White were third with the original and free dance phases still to come. Kevin Durant Jersey .

He cited personal and family reasons, and when someone cites personal and family reasons, that quite often is it. There are often people looking for other reasons, like "he didnt enjoy this or he didnt enjoy that", but Hunter looks at his junior hockey franchise, the London Knights, as family and he feels like thats where hes best needed.

When finance ministers and central bank governors from the G20 rich and developing countries meet in Paris on Friday and Saturday, they should no longer expect the coordinated stimulus packages to replace the painful but necessary long-term solutions. Admittedly, the world economy is on track for a dual-speed recovery. CHICAGO - Just when the Chicago Blackhawks think Patrick Kane has performed every possible stick-on-puck magic trick, he does something seemingly impossible to amaze them yet again. Kanes spectacular, unassisted goal - just 3:25 after Minnesota had made it a one-goal game - helped the Blackhawks to a 3-1 victory Monday night and dropped the Wild to 0-8 on the road. Hes got a few tricks that probably still havent come out, teammate Dave Bolland said. Cristobal Huet made 20 saves and extended his shutout streak to 113 minutes, 2 seconds before Andrew Brunettes power-play goal on a wild scramble in front of the net cut Chicagos lead to 2-1 at 3:29 of the third. The Wilds momentum ended when Kane stole the puck from Eric Belanger in the right corner. Kane skated behind the net and, when he couldnt find an open teammate, weaved his way to the lower left circle. He then wheeled around and lifted the puck into a tiny gap between goalie Niklas Backstroms right shoulder and the crossbar. A pretty sick shot, Bolland said. There was only an inch or two. Kane said he had been working on the move for years in practice and was glad to finally use it in a game. Its got to be a perfect shot, he said. Its lucky, too - kind of shoot and pray it goes in. It was the 50th career goal and fourth this season for Kane, the leagues top rookie in 2007-08. He doesnt turn 21 until next month. (Team media relations director) Brandon Faber made me feel real good, Kane said. He said Ive got 560 more to catch Bobby Hull. Minnesota became the first NHL team to earn zero points in its opening eight road games since Pittsburghh in 1996. Chris Bosh Jersey. The Wild, which has been outscored 28-13 on the road under rookie coach Todd Richards, clinched its first losing October in five years. If we want to make the playoffs, we have to play about .500 on the road, so there are a lot of things we have to catch up on, Backstrom said. It doesnt matter if the system is new. You have to find a way to win ... and pretty soon. Time is running out. Bolland and Troy Brouwer scored in the first period for the Blackhawks. Brouwers power-play goal, after Tomas Kopecky kept the puck alive with some nice hustle in front of the net, snapped the Blackhawks three-game, 0-for-12 slump with the man-advantage. The game marked the return of Martin Havlat, Chicagos leading scorer last season who was allowed to leave as a free agent after the Blackhawks signed Marian Hossa to a US$62.8-million, 12-year contract. He was turned away by Huet on the games first shot and didnt get the puck to the net again the rest of the night. It was strange playing against the same guys you were with the last three years, said Havlat, who was angry that the Blackhawks didnt re-sign him. They got the first goal, and Huet played well. We just couldnt put anything in, and that was it. Notes: Blackhawks C Jonathan Toews and D Brent Seabrook each missed a second consecutive game with what are believed to be concussion-related symptoms. Both were hurt in Wednesdays loss to Vancouver and are listed at day-to-day. ... The Wild had won six of their previous seven games at the United Center. ... Wild C Mikko Koivu has a goal and three assists in three games since being named first captain in team history last week. ' ' '
