MONTREAL -- The Montreal Alouettes welcome the Saskatchewan Roughriders in the teams second meeting of the season. Behind a 419 yard passing performance by quarterback Anthony Calvillo, the Alouettes captured the Week 2 matchup at Mosaic Stadium in Saskatchewan, 39-25. Catch the action live on TSN, beginning at 7pm et/4pm pt. Also available on TSN Mobile TV. Jamel Richardson emerged from a win two weeks ago in Regina with a knee injury but now the Montreal Alouettes slotback is set to return for a rematch with the same Saskatchewan Roughriders. The rangy receiver will be wearing a knee brace, but says he is fit to go. The 3-0 Alouettes take on the surprisingly 0-3 Roughriders at Percival Molson Stadium on Sunday night, as the two Grey Cup finalists meet for the second time in the opening four weeks of the schedule. "I can do everything with or without the brace," Richardson said Saturday. "The first day in practice it was something youre not used to, but the second day was good and the third was better. "So just imagine the game when my adrenaline takes over. I wont be thinking about the brace." Quarterback Anthony Calvillo will be glad to have one of his favourite targets back. Richardson piled up 276 yards on 18 catches in the teams first two games. Despite missing a week, he is second in the league behind Fred Stamps of Calgary, who had 317 yards on 17 catches. Richardson wasnt needed in last weeks 40-17 win over Toronto, when running back Brandon Whitaker took the spotlight by gaining a combined 216 yards on the ground and in short catches out of the backfield. "Toronto (Montreals last opponent) did a different defence than they showed on film, so we had to dump the ball to our underneath guys," said Calvillo. "So whether Jamel was there or not it wouldnt have mattered. "But he is a difference maker on our offence. There are a lot of plays designed for him, so having him back opens up our repertoire." Richardson was not the only Alouette to leave Regina hurting. It was an ultra-physical game, even nasty at times. The team Montreal has beaten by tight margins in the last two Grey Cup games held the Alouettes to a 17-17 tie after 30 minutes, but as has happened each week, the defence came apart. Roughriders safety Craig Butler was fined later for a helmet-to-helmet hit on S.J. Green, although Butler will sit this game out with an injury. With Saskatchewan desperate for their first win of the year, the rematch is not likely to be any tamer. "We expect it to be physical and hard fought but we dont expect anything illegal," said Montreal receiver Brian Bratton. "We just expect a hard-fought game. Theyve got some stand-up guys over there who play the game honestly, so we dont expect anything shady." Like most of the CFL, Bratton is shocked to see the Roughriders in a hole. Even more surprising is that if they lose again, Saskatchewan and usually tough B.C. will both be 0-4. The Riders have not started a year 0-4 since 1995. "We dont expect them to stay that way," he said. "Theyre a great team with great players." In Richardsons absence, the man who replaced him, Eric Deslauriers, caught Calvillos career record 395th touchdown pass and No. 396 went to Bratton. With Richardson back, receiver Dallas Baker will sit out. The Alouettes are missing left tackle Josh Bourke, who will be replaced by rookie import Jeraill McCuller. That puts non-import linebacker John Surla in, mainly for special teams. Saskatchewan product and defensive back Paul Waldu is also expected to dress. The Roughriders hope their pass coverage, which gave up five TDs to Montreal last time, will get a boost with the return of regular safety James Patrick. They will have Tristan Jackson, who is also a kick returner, at cornerback in place of Tad Kornegay, the popular veteran who fans were shocked to learn was placed on waivers and released this week. Coach Greg Marshall insists the Kornegay decision was not done simply to shake the squad out of their lethargy. "I dont know what the effect will be," said Marshall. "It certainly wasnt meant as a message sent. "This was strictly based on what we thought was best for our team. We know Tads been a valuable and popular member of the team, but you cant make decisions on popularity." The Roughriders defence is last in the CFL with 114 points allowed while their offence has generated only 56 in three games. The loss of receivers Andy Fantuz (to the NFL) and Rob Bagg (to injury) has clearly been felt. Quarterback Darian Durant has only three TD passes and has been picked off six times. "Its early in the season, theres no need to panic," said Durant. "We know we need to win. "Weve been through the roughest of times and well find a way to dig ourselves out. Last year we had a four-game losing streak. We just stayed together and found a way to get out of the slump we were in. I think well do the same thing this year." The Riders will also have Luc Mullinder in at rush end in place of Montez Murphy in a bid to get more heat on Calvillo. "Part of it is a ratio concern, but also, I dont think its any secret that we feel we need to generate more from our front and were still searching for the right combination there," said Marshall. http://www.nikesapatosvendaportugal.com/Air-Max-90-kh-21.html
. The six-time French Open champion was troubled when he practiced on the court for the first time Thursday. He described it as soft and slippery and criticized the placement of advertising boards at either end as being too low and the same colour as the surface. http://www.nikesapatosvendaportugal.com/Air-Force-1-ck-95.html
. Celtics spokesman Brian Olive said the closed workout of unknown duration took place in Waltham, Mass. Rondo has been out for nearly a year. He was not available for comment. http://www.nikesapatosvendaportugal.com/. The one thing he did control was his emotions. Liriano pitched two-hit ball over seven innings and the Pirates beat the Chicago Cubs 2-0 Friday for their major league-leading 10th shutout, matching Pittsburghs total for all of last season. http://www.nikesapatosvendaportugal.com/Nike-Free-3-0-Amphibious-ht-89.html
. Doug Deeds added a two-run single in the fourth inning while Matt Harrison threw four solid innings, allowing two hits and fanning four, in the win. Adam Dunn scored on Alex Rios ground out in the seventh to account for Chicagos only run, and Edwin Jackson was tagged for all four Texas runs on eight hits in four innings. http://www.nikesapatosvendaportugal.com/Nike-Free-5-0+-mf-46.html
. Arizona did just that -- got some plenty of help from the Padres, too. Josh Collmenter pitched effectively into the sixth inning and the Diamondbacks took advantage of San Diegos shaky defence to beat the Padres 5-0 on Friday night.RALEIGH, N.C. -- After being outscored 10-2 in the first two games of a five-game road trip, the Phoenix Coyotes had reason to wish they could pack their bags and return to Arizona. "It was a morgue around here -- nobody was happy, everybody was miserable," said Rob Klinkhammer. The mood on the team has certainly changed in the course of three games over five days. Klinkhammer scored two goals Sunday, including the game-winner 22 seconds into the third period, to help the Coyotes pick up a 5-3 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. Shane Doan, Mikkel Boedker and Lauri Korpikoski had Phoenixs other goals. Mike Smith made 31 saves for the Coyotes, who closed a five-game road trip by winning in Detroit, Philadelphia and Carolina. "It turns out to be a great road trip," Klinkhammer said. Eric Staal, Riley Nash and Jeff Skinner scored for the Hurricanes. Cam Ward made nine saves after coming on with 10:08 left in the second period to replace starting netminder Anton Khudobin. Khudobin suffered a lower-body injury when he skated out to play the puck. Ward allowed three of Phoenixs goals. "A few guys came ready to play and battle and play their game, but we had too many passengers tonight," said Carolina coach Kirk Muller. "We had some of our top guys that just didnt bring their A game tonight." With the score tied at 3 at the start of the third period, Carolinas Staal gambled in the offensive zone. He couldnt corral the puck, instead allowing Klinkhammer to skate forward on a 2-on-1. Klinkhammer decided not to pass, snapping the puck past Wards glove. "Thats a tough pass to make on your off side there, so I just came down and shot it, and it went in," Klinkhammer said. Doan then gave the Coyotes an insurance goal with 12:49 left when he scored on the power play. Doan also had an assist for his first two points of the year. "At some point, you have to start helping," DDoan said.dddddddddddd "The last few games, Ive been playing better and been on the ice for goals for and opportunities, but nothing was going in. I fortunately got one tonight to get off the schneid and get going out there." The relatively high-scoring game broke the mould of Phoenixs other victories -- the Coyotes had allowed four goals in their first three wins compared to 10 goals allowed in their two losses. Phoenix had a strong start, outshooting Carolina 8-1 in the first 12 minutes and scoring the first goal. With Carolinas Alexander Semin in the penalty box for hooking, the Coyotes Derek Morris took a shot that hit the post. Boedker cleaned up the rebound, taking advantage of the fact Khudobin was out of position. The Hurricanes tied the score when a Phoenix clearing attempt bounced to Staal, who was in front of the net. Staal backhanded the puck past Smith. Both teams scored twice in the second period. Nash started things off for the Hurricanes when he deflected a Ryan Murphy shot from the point above Smiths glove. The Coyotes then had consecutive goals to take a 3-2 lead. First, Klinkhammer finished a scrum in the crease by poking the puck through Khudobins pads. After Khudobins injury, Korpikoski finished a nice passing play with Mike Ribeiro by one-timing the puck past Ward. The Hurricanes tied the score at 3 with less than 1 minute left in the second period when Skinner snapped a sharp-angle shot that went off Smiths helmet and into the net for a power-play goal. Up until that point, Phoenix had killed off Carolinas first six power plays, including 1:56 of a two-minute advantage earlier in the second. "We dont score on the 5-on-3, and it just dropped the whole life out of our team," Muller said. Tuomo Ruutu played in his first game of the season for the Hurricanes after missing the teams first five games with a lower-body injury. Muller had no update on Khudobins status other than hed undergo an MRI on Monday. ' ' '
