CALGARY - Shawn Evans scored his fourth goal 1:23 into overtime as the Calgary Roughnecks edged the Colorado Mammoth 16-15 in an entertaining, back-and-forth West Division semi-final Saturday. Francisco Lindor Authentic Jersey . Working against the tight-coverage of defender Joey Cupido, Evans made a couple quick pivots that got him just enough space to be able to fire a clean shot that beat Mammoth goaltender Dillon Ward. As he raced down the floor in jubilation, the Roughnecks poured off the bench and smothered the forward in a dog pile as the raucous crowd of 12,375 at the Scotiabank Saddledome celebrated. Evans also had five assists for nine points. Calgary moves on to face the Edmonton Rush in the West final. Dane Dobbie scored four goals and Curtis Dickson added three more for Calgary. Geoff Snider and Jeff Shattler each scored a pair with Daryl Veltman also scoring. Adam Jones scored five times to lead the way for Colorado. Athan Iannucci and John Grant Jr. had two goals apiece while Sean Pollock, Cameron Holding, Dan Coates, Bob Snider, Joey Cupido and Joel Dalgarno also scored. Colorado (8-10) entered the playoffs having won three straight and four of seven since the club fired head coach Bob Hamley and two assistant coaches on March 4. Calgary (12-6) had also been on a roll of late, finishing the season with six wins in its last seven games. Tied 14-14 after three quarters, Colorado took the lead 41 seconds into the fourth quarter on Jones fifth goal of the night. In the longest stretch of action without a goal, Calgary finally tied the game at 8:58 when Dickson took the ball to the net and put a shot over the shoulder of Ward. It was the seventh time the game was tied. The previous time these two teams met — the first game after the Mammoth coaching change — Colorado won 10-9 in overtime in Calgary. That was the half-time score on this night. Calgary took its first lead of the night on the strength of three unanswered goals in the first six minutes of the third quarter. The Mammoths troubles began when they were late returning to the field to start the second half. Assessed a delay of game penalty, Evans scored on the power play at 1:12 tying it 10-10. Dickson fired a long, low shot past Ward at 3:49. Two minutes later, Shattler made it 12-10. Colorado eventually got it back to 13-13 on Grants goal at 13:42, and after Evans restored the Roughnecks lead at 14:26, Holding tied it up once again 18 seconds after that. After a relatively quiet first quarter in which the Mammoth took a 3-2 lead, the offences for both sides came our firing in a wild second quarter that saw the teams combine for 14 goals on 26 shots, with each scoring seven times. Goals on three consecutive shots to open the second quarter gave the Mammoth a 6-3 lead and prompted Calgary coach Curt Malawsky to pull goalie Mike Poulin. While the veteran returned to the game less than a minute later, the temporary breather seemed to work. Poulin stopped the next shot he faced and the Roughnecks responded by promptly scoring three goals in a 38-second span to tie it 6-6. Calgary then went to the power play only to have momentum swing back the other way thanks to short-handed goals eight seconds apart from Cupido and Snider. With the Mammoth up 10-8 and looking to increase their lead before the second quarter ended, Calgary got a pivotal short-handed goal from Dobbie, the NLLs regular season scoring leader with 51. Dobbies goal was his third of the night, and it came with 19 seconds remaining in the half. The final shots were 60-50 in favour of Calgary. Notes: Roughnecks Geoff Snider left the game late in the third quarter with an injury... Calgary will host Edmonton on Saturday in the first of a two-game West division final. In a new format introduced this season, each team hosts one game. If each team wins once, a 10-minute mini game immediately follows the second game. If still tied, theyll play sudden death overtime... In the East final, Buffalo will play Rochester. Jim Thome Authentic Jersey . The 55th-ranked Austrian saved five of the eight break points he faced and converted three of his 12 chances to defeat the Spaniard in 2 1/2 hours. Granollers, ranked 40 places above Thiem, was granted a first-round bye at the clay-court event. Bob Feller Authentic Jersey .Y. -- The Ottawa Senators got aggressive in overtime and Jared Cowen made it work. . Stones three-point effort helped lead the Brandon Wheat Kings to a 5-3 victory against the Red Deer Rebels. Jordan Fransoo, Alessio Bertaggia and Darian Dziurzynski also scored for Brandon (19-12-2).CINCINNATI - With a 6-4 record, the Baltimore Ravens would be at or near the top of every division except one: their own. In the AFC North, it translates into last place.Its the only division where being good isnt good enough.Ive never been in a race this tight, this late in the season, Ravens tight end Owen Daniels said. Its pretty crazy.And historic, too.Every team in the North is at least two games over .500 this week: Cleveland (6-3), Cincinnati (5-3-1), Pittsburgh (6-4) and Baltimore (6-4). That hasnt happened in any division since 1935, when the Western Division had Detroit, Green Bay, the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Cardinals all two games above the break-even mark.The AFC North is topping itself after being the leagues most successful division over the last six years.Its always been competitive, but this year you are really seeing the youth and talent that has been on these teams stepping up and growing into those roles, Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth said. Its going to be a heck of a challenge to win this division. Its like the SEC, theres not really a front-runner. Winning the division — who knows how much it is going to cost you?Or how many are going to make it. The division sent three teams to the playoffs in 2011 and could do so again.Part of it is the scheduling format. The North was matched against the AFC South and NFC South, which have only one winning team (Indianapolis) among them and a combined 24-49-1 record. In games outside of the division, AFC North teams have gone 15-6-1.As it currently stands, the Browns would make the playoffs as the division champion. Kansas City (6-3) would get the first wild card. The Bengals, Steelers and Ravens are next in line.The Browns have been the biggest surprise, alone in first place in November for the first time since 1994, when Bill Belichick was the head coach and Art Modell hadnt moved his team to Baltimore. Cleveland is trying to extend the leagues history of at least one surprise team in the playoffs.Since the current format was adopted in 1990, at least four teams have qualified for the post-season that didnt make it the previous year. The Browns have set themselves up to be one of this years newcomers.The meaningful games come at the end of November and December, quarterback Brian Hoyer said. Thats something this organization hasnt had in a long time.Things to watch in the NFLs toughest division down the stretch:LIVING UP TO ITS REPUTATION: Its had a dozen teams reach the playoffs in the last six yearss, two more than any other division. Kenny Lofton Authentic Jersey. Only Cincinnati made the playoffs last season, ending a streak of five straight years with at least two teams in the post-season. During that six-year span, North teams have reached the Super Bowl three times and won two titles.CAN THE BROWNS HANG ON: A doormat during that six-year stretch, the Browns have a chance to start adding to the divisions legacy. The biggest question is whether they can hold up under the strain of games where everythings on the line. The Browns have made only one playoff appearance since they returned as a franchise in 1999, losing to Pittsburgh in the opening round in 2002.Biggest games left: home vs. Bengals, finish season in Baltimore.WHAT TO MAKE OF THE BENGALS: A 24-3 loss to the Browns on Thursday night knocked the defending division champions out of first place and raised a lot of doubts about whether theyre capable of a fourth straight playoff appearance. Andy Dalton threw three interceptions and finished with a passer rating of 2.0. Their defence has dropped from third overall last season to 30th. And theres no quick fix for any of it. Five of their last seven games are on the road.Biggest games left: at Cleveland, host Denver on Monday night, at Pittsburgh to finish season.STEELERS HAVE IT IN THEIR HANDS: Pittsburghs schedule is in some ways the most favourable of the four teams, including a home game against the Chiefs and two against the Bengals in the last four weeks. One concern: Theyre 2-3 away from home and 8-10 in their last 18 games against teams with losing records.All the teams have gotten better, guard Ramon Foster said. Theyve raised their players in a way youre supposed to develop your talent, from Cleveland all the way up, and I think its going to be this way for years to come.Biggest games left: host Chiefs, in Cincinnati to end season.RAVENS DONT HAVE TOO FAR TO LOOK UP: Baltimore could just as easily be in first place right now. The Ravens lost both of their games to the Bengals in the closing minutes. Theyre 2-3 in the division with only one game left, hosting Cleveland in the final week. It wouldnt take much for them to jump from worst to first and reach the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years.Biggest games left: at Texans, host Browns to end season.___AP Sports Writers Will Graves in Pittsburgh, David Ginsburg in Owings Mills, Md., and Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.___AP NFL website: and Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China ' ' '
