Just a little more than a month since undergoing leg surgery, Tampa Bay Lightning sniper Steven Stamkos was skating and stick-handling at the Prudential Center in New Jersey on Saturday. Juan Agudelo USA Jersey
. It was the first time hes laced up the skates since breaking his right leg in a game against the Boston Bruins on Nov. 11. Stamkos joined his teammates on the ice at their morning skate before a game against the Devils. He wasnt in hockey gear. "Im feeling good (and) everythings on track," Stamkos said following practice. "Just starting to progress and make sure there are no setbacks, but Im feeling really good." Stamkos suffered a fractured tibia while backchecking on a play in the Tampa Bay zone in the second period when he got tangled with Boston defenceman Dougie Hamilton. Stamkos fell to the ice and slid feet-first before his lower right leg slammed into the right post, forcing the net off its moorings. "Its just nice to get back out there," he said. "Mentally, its just a good thing to get out there on the ice and even be out there and pass the puck with a couple of guys. Thats positive for me and thats only going to help." Asked if there was any pain in his foot during the skate, Stamkos said it felt good. "I thought I might have a little issue with that bottom screw in there but I didnt. Theres still a bit of swelling in the leg and ankle so you feel that a little bit, but I dont think Im going to have a problem with the screw." While a return to the ice is positive news, Stamkos said that a return date isnt any clearer. "There is healing taking place in the bone but by no means is it close to being fully healed. Only time will tell but we definitely ramped up the rehab; whether it was in the water tread mill, in the gym and now on the ice. "This ice stuff is really not for my leg; its more for keeping my hands loose and shooting some pucks. Well see, but everythings gone great so far and I couldnt be more pleased with the treatment Ive been getting." Stamkos was tied for the NHL lead in goals (14) and points (23) before suffering the injury. Jozy Altidore USA Jersey

. - Kyle Buschs bid for a tripleheader sweep at Dover ended with a wreck in Sundays Sprint Cup race. OTTAWA -- Darian Durant threw one touchdown and Will Ford ran for two more, all in the first quarter as the Saskatchewan Roughriders trounced the Ottawa Redblacks 38-14 on Saturday night. Chris Milo also had a 15-yard field goal in an opening quarter in which the Roughriders built a 24-0 lead, en route to handing the Redblacks their first home defeat in their second home game. In their inaugural season, the Redblacks (1-4) were hoping to build on the 18-17 win over the Toronto Argonauts in their home opener two weeks ago. Any hope of that was quickly dashed with Ottawas inability to move the ball early or stop Durant and the Roughriders offence. The Redblacks held the Roughriders (3-2) to just six second-half points on a pair of field goals (34 and 42) from Milo, but managed little offence of their own. Thomas DeMarco came on in relief of Henry Burris at quarterback midway through the fourth quarter and led the Redblacks on a 75-yard drive, all passing, that ended with a five-yard touchdown pass to Jamill Smith. The Roughriders led 32-7 at the half in what was to that point a very unusual game,, Saskatchewans 24-point first quarter included. Jozy Altidore Jersey
. Early in the second quarter Brett Maher attempted a 31-yard field goal to get the Redblacks their first points of the game and although the kick had the distance, it didnt have the accuracy hitting the upright. On the Redblacks next possession Maher lined up for another field goal attempt, this time from 50 yards. The kick was short and Tristan Jackson ran it back 112 yards for a touchdown. The ensuing conversion and single off the kickoff gave the Roughriders a 32-0 lead. On the next series the Redblacks got their first points of the game in a very unconventional way. Facing a third-and-three, DeMarco, who came on to punt, delivered a 73-yard punt that rolled its way to the back of the Roughriders end zone. Dobson Collins rushed the length of the field and jumped on the loose ball for the CFLs first onside punt recovery for a touchdown since 1999 when Scott McKenzie did it with the Calgary Stampeders. Before that, no one had completed an onside punt recovery since Dick Adams of the Ottawa Rough Riders did it in 1973.
