Stephen Curry out for at least another week due to re-injured right ankle

Stephen Curry will miss at least another week because of his troublesome right ankle, which he re-injured last Thursday against San Antonio.

“The rivalry, I think, gets both teams up,” McLellan said. “It’s an exciting time to be playing, especially against your rival. We found some breaks. We’ve got some good goaltending. We found ways to check when we needed to. We’ve had to come back in games.

“There’s really no pattern to our success against them. Every game’s been different. Every game has taken on its own personality, so we hope that continues again (on Tuesday) and we can find a way to push our way to win.”

Rookie defenseman Ethan Bear is hoping he gets the call to play his sixth NHL game — and first against the Flames — for the Oilers.

“It’s a very intense rivalry, so I’m looking very forward to it,” Bear said. “Everybody always wants to beat Calgary. It’s another rivalry that you want to be a part of. You know how to get up for it. They’re pretty intense games, so I just want to get out there and play hard.”

The 71-year-old Jackson will have knee surgery Tuesday after tripping and falling during a walk Monday morning.

The Yankees said Jackson, an instructor at spring training, was in “good spirits.”

Jackson hit 563 career home runs, including 144 with the Yankees from 1977-81. He connected for three homers on three pitches in Game 6 of the 1977 World Series as the Yankees beat the Los Angeles Dodgers to win their first title since 1962.

Trump also went out of his way to single out several Houston players individually, including World Series MVP George Springer and American League MVP Jose Altuve. Trump acknowledged the “lights-out Cheap Custom Jerseys pitching” of trade deadline acquisition Justin Verlander, and also specifically lauded fellow hurlers Cheap Braves Jerseys Dallas Keuchel, Charlie Morton, and Brad Peacock for their performances last season.

NFL free agency rumors: QB Sam Bradford to sign with Cardinals

With primary target Kirk Cousins off the market, the Cardinals moved to Plan B — as in Bradford at quarterback.

Sam Bradford will sign with Arizona when the new league year begins Wednesday, ESPN.com reported, citing an unidentified source.

Because of the knee injury, Bradford wasn’t even able to return to practice until January but surely will have to pass a physical, if he hasn’t already, for the Cardinals.

In 80 NFL games since 2010 with the Rams, Eagles and Vikings, Bradford has completed 1,805 of 2,887 passes (62.5 percent) for 19,049 and 101 touchdowns with 57 interceptions. He missed all of the 2014 season with a knee injury.

The con of getting Butler would be more limited funds to upgrade the offense in free agency. Going a little lower here, the Rams’ Trumaine Johnson and the Redskins’ Bashaud Breeland are two solid options for the Bears’ scheme. The Bills’ E.J. Gaines and the Giants’ Ross Cockrell are sleepers to watch should they hit the market.

The Bears might not go big at corner because the offensive needs, but that doesn’t mean they can’t afford to go back home with little to nothing in free agency.

The venerable Packers wide receiver is the most notable, shocking cut so far, trumping the Dolphins’ decision to part ways with Ndamukong Suh. Rodgers moves on with recently extended Davante Adams and Graham as his go-to guys, but it’s sad to see Nelson leave.

Rodgers should be looking at all these QB contracts, led by those of Garoppolo and Cousins, and knowing he’ll get his relative discount contract double-checked again by the Packers. Martin, the best Cheap Authentic Hockey Jerseys guard in the league, becomes a free agent in 2019. After what Norwell got, Martin should already hear all that cha-chinging coming out of Jerry Jones’ cash register.

Landry is the game’s ultimate high-volume possession receiver. He’s more of a reliable Cheap Baseball Jerseys extension of a running game and short-area scorer than he is a gamebreaker, but he’s very good in his niche role.

Karlsson scores in overtime, Senators beat Stars 3-2

Craig Anderson was in good spirits after Erik Karlsson’s goal 2:19 into overtime lifted the Ottawa Senators over the Dallas Stars 3-2 in overtime on Monday night.

Anderson, who made 31 saves, spoke tongue-in-cheek about 3-on-3 play in OT and even threw in a Scandinavian pun.

“I think 3-on-3 is one of our strong suits. Maybe we should try to take coinciding penalties throughout the game and get 3-on-3 going in the regular game.

“(Karlsson) has the breakaway speed, finds a way to finish even though he’s Swedish.”

The Flyers, anything but a sure bet to make the playoffs let alone finish first in their division, got Wayne Simmonds back Wednesday after a seven-game injury absence, but still fell and have allowed 20 goals in the four losses.

The Flyers went 0-for-5 on the power play and have one goal on their last 19 chances.

After stopping Pominville’s one-timer from the left circle, Andersen was knocked off balance from behind by Larsson, who was skating through the crease. Larsson then corralled the rebound and swept it under Andersen.

Babcock challenged the call by saying Larsson first collided with Andersen while the two were in the crease.

“What they told me is he was interfered with outside the paint, which is not true and that, tonight, was goalie interference no matter what way you look at it,” Babcock said.

Toronto has matched its longest skid of the season, which comes after the Leafs enjoyed a 13-2 run.

“The bottom line is you’ve got to get it turned around. We can’t continue to lose hockey games,” Babcock said.

“There’s still time left and games left,” Smith said. “I think we’re a good team. It’s time now to put all the chips in, and we need every guy working on all cylinders here.”

With a 23-16-6 record, Smith has provided the Flames much-needed stability in net after Cheap Baseball Jerseys China being acquired in a trade with Arizona in June. His 2.53 goals-against average ranks 12th and 0.921 save percentage is ninth Cheap Authentic Jerseys among goalies with 30 or more games played.
