TORONTO – David Clarkson paused to consider the query. Brett Favre Packers Jersey . "Its a tough question," he said before carefully choosing his words. Knowing the result of his actions, would the 29-year-old leap off the bench to defend a teammate if the situation were to arise once more? "Different situations call for different measures, right," said Clarkson delicately on Wednesday afternoon, never quite answering the question directly. "I think you learn from things. And like I said [previously], I made a decision with my heart, not with my head but I try to play with my heart on my sleeve and play that same way all the time." Shelved for his actions in defending Phil Kessel from Sabres tough guy John Scott on Sept. 22, Clarkson finally served the 10th and final game of his suspension Tuesday night and will make his much-anticipated Leafs debut in Columbus on Friday evening. After nearly a month of waiting to debut in the sweater he grew up wearing, a month of lingering as an extra forward at practice, a month as an outside ingredient to his teams early season success, Clarkson can finally prepare to play in his first regular season game with the Leafs. "It felt long," he said. "When the teams winning obviously it makes it shorter, but it felt like quite a while." The Leafs managed to reel off seven wins (7-3-0) in his absence – in addition to regulars Nik Kulemin, Mark Fraser and Frazer McLaren, all due back soon – plugging holes with youth amid an admittedly uneven start that featured sturdy netminding, terrific special teams, and inconsistent performance in the remaining underlying areas. Clarksons brash presence will be a welcome addition. He was the clubs marquee offseason acquisition – inked a massive seven-year deal worth $36.75 million – a player Dave Nonis described as "great mix of skill and character and grit". Once a 30-goal man, the Leafs are counting on Clarkson to offer an irritating physical presence in their top-9, leadership from a Stanley Cup Final appearance in New Jersey, and of course, something in the way of offence, though not necessarily 30 goals. But in spite of the simmering expectations of his debut, additionally stoked by his return home and the weight of that sizeable contract, Clarkson understands he cant run around and earn it back all at once. "Thats one thing I cant do," he said. "Its easy when youve been suspended to try to come back in the lineup and try to overdo things. Ive got to just come in and take it step-by-step, [do] what I was brought here to do; thats go around the net, put the puck in the net, be physical, [be] good in my own zone, do all those things, not try to do too much." Though nothing has been declared yet by head coach Randy Carlyle, Clarkson would seem to be a fit alongside Nazem Kadri and Joffrey Lupul, the latter filling a roster void at right wing while Clarkson and Kulemin remained out. Wherever he ends up, Clarkson will be a definite upgrade over the inexperienced youth he is set to replace, a strong bet to trigger improvement defensively and in the dirty areas down-low in the offensive zone. To pass the time and remain fit during his first NHL suspension, Clarkson skated twice daily – both at practice and often with skating consultant Barb Underhill – also employing the services of strength coach Anthony Belza during off-ice workouts. That and extra time with family. "My wife is probably ready to get me out of the house and back at the rink," he grinned. Though he has not played since Sept. 27, Clarkson did not believe that rust would be a factor in his return to the Toronto lineup. Ultimately, the experience is not one hed like to endure again. "At the end of the day its different when youre in the National Hockey League and youre starting a new chapter of your career or your life and youre suspended," Clarkson concluded. "Luckily enough Ill be here for quite awhile and have a lot of home openers to play. But the big thing is the team was successful and Im just coming in now fresh and feel great on the ice. "Im excited here for Friday night." Paul Hornung Jersey . Scott won the Australian PGA last week in his first event in Australia since winning the U.S. Masters in April. American Matt Kuchar, ahead by two strokes with four to play and even with Scott with one to go, double-bogeyed the 18th after taking two shots to get out of a bunker. Bryan Bulaga Packers Jersey . Murray beat Sam Querrey 7-6 (5), 6-7 (3), 6-1, 6-3 to clinch Britains opening-round victory against the United States on Sunday at Petco Park. "Im proud of the way Im playing just now, because I had to do a lot of work to get back to where I want to be," Murray said after celebrating with his teammates on the red clay court in a temporary stadium in left field of the downtown home of baseballs San Diego Padres. http://www.thepackersteamproshop.com/Yo ... te-Jersey/
. Kozun faked to the forehand and beat Monsters starter, Calvin Pickard, pad side in the second round for the winner. Spencer Abbott also scored in the shootout for the Marlies (25-13-4).TORONTO -- Randy Carlyle didnt like what he saw from goaltender James Reimer, so the hook came as he was walking off the bench at the first intermission. The Toronto Maple Leafs coach tapped Jonathan Bernier and said simply: "Youre going in." Reimer had given up three goals on 12 shots to the Detroit Red Wings, partially the product of him but also his teammates making a handful of blunders. Reimer wasnt happy about being pulled. He would have liked to be able to play through. "You want that chance to get in there and fight and battle for your teammates and try and get a win," he said. "But obviously Randy had other thoughts, and hes the coach and hes the one who makes those decisions. I just try and stop pucks." In Carlyles estimation, Reimer did not do a good enough job of that, specifically on Joakim Anderssons wrap-around goal that went in off his stick and then on Tomas Jurcos that snuck in to make it 3-1 Detroit. The concern for Carlyle began when the Red Wings first shot on Reimer got into and out of his glove. "I thought the rebounds were bouncing away from him," the Leafs coach said after the 5-4 shootout loss. "When a goaltender is in the zone, pucks usually dont go through him, and their third goal went through him. ... "When you do that you do that not based upon not specifically the individual thats getting pulled. You do it for your team that somehow you can get a spark for your team, and I thought Bernier came in and did that for us." Reimer didnt get an explanation from Carlyle after being yaanked for the fourth time this season, not counting Oct. Nick Perry Jersey. 17 against Carolina when he left with an injury. Bernier was coming back from a lower-body injury suffered Monday in a collision with Pittsburgh forward Jayson Megna that cost him a potential start Thursday against the Coyotes. He reported feeling OK physically in his first action since then. "Obviously the shootout and going in the game (off the bench) like this is not the best for after an injury, but it was fine," Bernier said. Bernier stopped 25 of the 26 shots he faced in the second and third periods and then overtime. The only goal he gave up was to Tomas Tatar in the third period, but Bernier emphasized the positives of erasing a two-goal deficit. "Coming back after (3-1), its pretty impressive," he said. "I think its a big point for us. Obviously coming back against a good team like this, it should be a huge confidence (boost)." Its uncertain where Reimers confidence is after an up-and-down week. His followed up pointed comments after Tuesdays loss to the Florida Panthers about his teammates lack of consistent effort with 34 saves in a victory over Phoenix on Thursday. Then came Saturday night, when everything fell apart in a forgettable first period. "Obviously I didnt want to get pulled," Reimer said. "Its the last thing I wanted, I wanted to hang in there. But thats Randys decision, and I respect what he decides. I may not like it, but thats irrelevant. Hes the one who makes those decisions, and so, yeah, thats really all I got."
