ABBOTSFORD, B. De Anthony Thomas Jersey .C. -- The Abbotsford Heat know how difficult it can be to win games with a depleted lineup. Decimated by injuries and call ups to the affiliate Calgary Flames, Abbotsford lost its seventh straight contest on Saturday, falling to the Chicago Wolves 7-2 in American Hockey League action. "Its mid-March and we dont have our regular team, but every team goes through it," said Heat head coach Troy Ward. "Every family goes through difficult times. You just be patient, you continue to teach, you stick with the process. Right now, were really trying to survive and fight." Seven players who were with the Heat within the past two weeks dressed for the Flames Saturday in Vancouver. "Its been tough," said Heat alternate captain Carter Bancks. "Weve had guys going in and out of our lineup. But we cant make excuses. Weve got a lot of good guys here, a lot of really good hockey players." Chicago Wolves centre Pat Cannone made up for lost time Saturday night, scoring his first career hat trick in his second game back from injury. Cannone suffered a broken hand on Jan. 21. "It was pretty cool," said Cannone. "Ive been out for six weeks now so it was just nice to contribute and help out offensively. Getting some goals is always nice." After Abbotsford scored to make it a three-goal game, Cannone scored twice in 72 seconds late in the third period to complete the hat trick, which he said was his first "probably since squirts." The third-year pro now has 12 goals this season. Joe Corvo and Eric Selleck each scored their first goals as a member of the Wolves. Corvo was playing his first game since being waived by the Ottawa Senators and Selleck was acquired by the Wolves affiliate St. Louis Blues at the trade deadline. "He brings a lot of veteran leadership," said Cannone of the 36-year-old Corvo. "Hes been in the game for a while and is obviously a great player. It really helps out on the power play on the back end. It was a big goal for us." Adam Cracknell and Michael Davies also scored for Chicago (34-18-6). The Wolves are now on an 11-2-1 run, catapulting them past Abbotsford into fourth in the Western Conference. "We know we have a lot of skill so we if we add the element of hard work were pretty tough to beat," said Cannone. Jake Allen made 28 saves for the Wolves and has allowed two goals or less for eight of his last 11 starts. "We know we have a great goalie back there," said Cannone. "He keeps us in games every night." Ben Street and Brett Olson replied for Abbotsford (33-20-7). Olivier Roy stopped 28 of 33 shots before being replaced by Aaron Dell, who allowed two goals on eight shots in 11 minutes of relief. The Wolves jumped to a 2-0 lead with goals two minutes and 35 seconds apart in the first period. First Cracknell deflected Taylor Chorneys point shot for his ninth of the season at 11:14. Then, after a Heat defender was caught too deep in the Chicago zone, Shane Harper fed Davies, who split the scrambling defencemen and beat Roy glove side for his sixth of the campaign. The momentum switched the other way just 29 seconds into the second period. Olson was sent in alone by Kane Lafranchises long stretch pass and he beat Allen for his 11th. "They had a good push in the beginning of the second," said Cannone. "They got that quick goal to make it 2-1. We did a good job of responding. When we got it right back it was pretty big and important for us." The Wolves, however, re-established the two-goal lead when Corvo scored on the power play at 13:40. His wrist shot from the top of the circle beat Roy with Cracknell screening in front. Cannones made it 4-1 at 16:08. Just after killing off a penalty, Cannone and Tyler Shattock worked a give-and-go on a 3-on-2 rush, with the Bayport, N.Y., native firing the puck into the open side of the net. Allen made a few big stops to keep his club in the lead. In the second period he stopped Blair Jones power move and stacked the pads to turn away Evan Trupps rebound attempt. Then early in the third he made a glove save off Corey Locke in close. Selleck added to the onslaught at 8:34 of the third, driving hard to the net from the corner and lifting it over the sprawling netminder. Street temporarily stopped the bleeding, one-timing Derek Smiths pass past Allen at 10:45 for his 22nd of the year. At 13:28 Cannone scored the first of his two third-period goals and at 14:40 he completed the hat-trick. "It was a good game for us," said Cannone. "We knew they were a pretty tenacious team, so getting that first one was huge. We have a lot of guys with a lot of skill that can score, so we wanted to keep the pressure on them." Daniel Sorensen Jersey . "I dont know where we would be without him," McClendon said. "Hes done a tremendous job for us and (Wednesday) was no different." Logan Morrison drove in two runs in Seattles big sixth inning, Young pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners beat the Houston Astros 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep. Eric Fisher Jersey . Cleary also had two assists and Patrick Eaves added two goals for the Red Wings, who also ousted Phoenix in seven games during the first round of the 2010 postseason. Todd Bertuzzi had a goal and an assist for Detroit, which got a goal apiece from Tomas Holmstrom and Niklas Kronwall and suffered no shortage of offense despite the absences of Henrik Zetterberg and Johan Franzen. http://www.thechiefsshoponline.com/Youth-Derrick-Johnson-Chiefs-Jersey/ .

Watch Eugenie Bouchards opening round match at the Australian Open live tonight on TSN5 at 3am et/Midnight pt.In the end, Mike Weir didnt win the HP Byron Nelson. And yet he emerged from the tournament with perhaps something just as important as a first-place cheque and a trophy. Weir got a sign, an indication that all the work he put in, all the hours he spent on the range, the rehab he did after elbow surgery, the tinkering with clubs and instructors, and fighting off the naysayers who told him he was done, has been worth it. Sure it was just one tournament and it will take a few more solid performances to show that the magic has returned for good for Canadas favourite lefthander, but if nothing else, Weir can claim salvation. He knows that he can do it, play golf on the PGA Tour at the highest level. Weir led the tournament early on Sunday, rattling off four birdies in the first five holes. Bogeys at six and nine dropped him out of top spot and although he fought back valiantly at the end, his run came up just short. Brendan Todd pulled out a two-shot win with a sparkling bogey-free final round. For many, Weirs performance was a surprise. But for some time now, hes has been telling all that his ball-striking has been in form but an uncooperative putter is all thats been holding him back. At the Masters there were blips that proved what he was saying. He climbed to within a shot of the lead during the second round and he had three solid rounds at the Wells Fargo before being derailed with a final-round 77. This week, it finally worked, thanks in part to exchanging an oversized putter grip with a well-worn, thin one that was on an old putter. He finished second in Strokes Gained – Putting and first in Putts in Greens in Regulation. Despite his confidence and unwavering optimism, Weir has, at times, questioned his future during his struggles. Over the past four years, hes had doubts. There were doubts when he missed 18 straight cuts and fell outside the top 1,000 in the Official World Golf Ranking. There were doubts when he had to use up two career money list exemptions to keep playing. There were doubts when he earned a grand total of $23,312 over a two-year stretch in 2011-12. But Mike Weir never lost hope. He believed he would get back, if not to the point of winning another major then at least to where he could compete on the PGA Tour. The amount of time Weir put into his game, to trying to find an answer would wear out most professionals. And to be sure, there were a few dead ends he went down. But thats all now in the past. Weir said he has no plans to loook in the rear-view mirror. Marcus Allen Jersey. "I dont think I will, to be honest," said Weir on the last four years. "Im here now and Im pushing forward. Ive been asked that question a lot, Ive answered it a lot. I am where I am now and Im pushing forward. Im not going to reflect on the past; thats history now. Im playing good golf and I want to keep that going." Still, he hasnt forgotten just how difficult this stretch has been. And as his game deteriorated after hitting a root at the 2011 Heritage, the questions increased, questions about his game and his ability to still compete. "I just knew that it was inevitable," Weir said of the constant inquiry. "I didnt take offence to it. It was matter of fact – I was playing poorly. I was trying to dig myself out of it. I didnt have any explanation for it except what got me into it, which was obviously the elbow issue, having surgery then trying to play through that and then basically being afraid to hit the ground, the bad habits I got into and probably coming back a little bit early." The bad habits piled on. One caused another and then another. At times, Weir struggled with the driver so badly, it was frightening. During one round where he shot 78, one of his playing partners told me later that if his short game wasnt all-world, Weir might have shot 90. But he stuck with it, kept working and now is finally seeing the fruits of his lab
