TORONTO - James van Riemsdyk knew the Toronto Maple Leafs needed a bounce-back win after dropping back-to-back ugly losses to the Buffalo Sabres and Nashville Predators. Xavier Rhodes Jersey .Van Riemsdyk went top shelf twice in the second period and Jonathan Bernier provided a solid showing in goal to lead the Maple Leafs to a much-needed 5-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Thursday.It was nice for us to put that little streak, whatever you wanna call it, the bad play behind us, said van Riemsdyk. Now we have to build on this and find some consistency.Van Riemsdyk had his first two-goal game of the season and Bernier bounced back from a forgettable showing against Nashville on Tuesday as Toronto snapped a three-game losing streak in front of 19,089 fans at Air Canada Centre.David Clarkson, Richard Panik and Roman Polak also pitched in as Toronto (10-8-2) scored early in the first and added three more in the second.Alex Killorn and Steven Stamkos replied for Tampa Bay (13-6-2).Maple Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle said consistency has eluded Toronto this season, and he hoped the team can use their win over the Lightning to eliminate the ebbs and flows that have followed them around lately.Sometimes you have to accept that the hockey gods are going to be against you, and thats what we believed (Tuesday), he said. It was nine goals, and we were embarrassed by it. And there was nothing we could do to take it back. But we sure didnt want to have something bad happen to our hockey club tonight, and I think they were rewarded for their hard work.The Maple Leafs shot out to an early 1-0 lead when Daniel Winnik beat out an icing call, circled the net and fed a pass to David Clarkson, whose one-timer beat Lightning goaltender Ben Bishop.Killorn briefly tied it late in the first when he beat Bernier with a short-handed, screened snapshot at 18:10 to make it 1-1 heading into the second.Thats when the Leafs took it to Tampa Bay, starting with a goal from former Lightning forward Richard Panik, who capitalized on a bad turnover by defender Matthew Carle and promptly tucked the puck past Bishop for a 2-1 lead.Van Riemsdyk then beat Bishop over his glove at the 12:31 mark of the period and then again on the power play at 15:15. On his second goal, Van Riemsdyk was left all alone with a rebound from a Phil Kessel wrister, electing to flip the puck past Bishop on the Leafs fourth goal. Van Riemsdyks second goal gave the Leafs a three-goal cushion heading into the third.At the other end of the ice, the normally high-scoring Lightning couldnt break through Bernier, who redeemed himself after being pulled from Tuesday nights 9-2 loss to Nashville after giving up three goals on 12 shots over 20 minutes.We executed like it was the first day of training camp, Lighting head coach Jon Cooper said. We play speed game, thats what puts teams on their heels. When were playing slow and were not executing were in trouble.Aside from the Killhorn goal in the first, Berniers only other blemish came when Stamkos scored one in close late in the third with the goalie pulled and just over four minutes to play.But despite a late Lightning charge in the final minute, Bernier stood tall to record his sixth win of the season, stopping 26 of 28 shots.I think were keeping it simple. We keep our forecheck going and I think thats a big reason why we can spend some time in their zone and kill some time, said Bernier. if you just back in to your zone, thats when youre gonna get a lot of shots.Polak put the puck in to the empty net to seal the win for Toronto Daniel Carlson Jersey . He also had some help Monday night.Hibbert scored a season-high 29 points to help Indiana beat the Utah Jazz 97-86 Monday night, ending the Pacers six-game losing streak. Kirk Cousins Jersey . And while taking highly-touted Simon Fraser offensive lineman Matthias Goossen second overall on Tuesday night will definitely help in an area of need for the club, it was a swap of draft picks that may prove to be his most shrewd move. "When Jesse Briggs started to fall a little bit, you could just see Kyle perk up in his chair. . The Miami Heat star tops the leagues global list of top-selling jerseys for the 2012-13 season, edging Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, Kobe Bryant of the Los Angeles Lakers, Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder and James Heat teammate Dwyane Wade for the No.HOMESTEAD, Fla. - Joey Loganos championship bid ended in the pits on a miserable stop. Denny Hamlin coughed up his shot on a gamble that went bust. Ryan Newmans ferocious rally from an early deficit was one spot short.Kevin Harvick was the class of NASCARs final four and won the Sprint Cup championship Sunday night at Homestead-Miami Speedway.The other three have to wait at least another year.Newman, winless on the season, was second. Hamlin was seventh, and Logano finished 16th.Logano and Hamlin drove like championship drivers for the bulk of the race until mistakes in the closing laps cost them a legitimate push that could haunt the drivers for years.Joe Gibbs Racing decided not to pit Hamlin when a debris caution came out with 20 laps remaining. Hamlin stayed out, leaving him without the fresh tires needed to catch Harvick.I dont know, I thought we could have beat them on pit road, Hamlin said over the radio.Hell never know for sure.We were sitting ducks as long as cautions kept coming, Hamlin said. We had a decent lead. The cautions just didnt come our way.Logano had a fantastic car and was running inside the top 10 when the pit crew had a jack issue with the No. 22 Ford. Logano, in his second season driving for Roger Penske, saw his championship chance destroyed. He plummeted from sixth to 21st and had no time to recover.Im not going to say it was pressure, Logano said. We knew coming into this race you cant afford to make one mistake. Our pit crew did a fantastic job this year. Im not putting them down over one thing.Newmans finish spared NASCAR the embarrassment of stamping this season with a winless champion. NASCAR chairman Brian France said Friday the series would be delighted if Newman somehow defied the mmodel that preached winning above all and won the championship. Cheap Vikings Jerseys. rying to win owner Richard Childress his seventh title, Newman saved his best driving of the season for the last race of the season after starting 21st.Our sport would have been better if the four of us were on the front two rows, Newman said. But in the end, I was one of the guys that had a shot at it, and I was happy to be in that position. But man, you live for that moment and you drive as hard as you can.NASCAR seemed poised to have all four cars make a mad championship dash for the checkered flag until the final 20 laps.Newman was the caboose when the contenders lined up second through fifth behind early leader Jeff Gordon. Like a short-track speedskater, Newman could have used a wreck to wipe out the cars in front of him to take the lead. Newman had the speed in the No. 31 to zip into the top five, just not the breaks needed to play catch up.Logano had his sixth win of the season in range when he zipped past Harvick and Newman to move into second place early on.But he ran into his first issue when his Ford slapped the wall midway through the race, though he stayed on the track. But a dropped lugnut on the first pit stop miscue late in the race sent Logano to 11th.We still have a shot at this, pick your heads up, crew chief Todd Gordon said.With 28 laps left, the drivers were bunched nose-to-tail in pairs: Hamlin and Harvick ran second and third; Newman and Logano were seventh and eighth.All the drama NASCAR wanted with its new win-or-bust format materialized for the thrilling finale.But they all knew three drivers had to head home without a trophy.We had a car that was capable of winning today, Hamlin said. We know that.
