. Craig Anderson stopped 46 shots in his first game back since being injured Mar. 10 as the Ottawa Senators beat the visiting Chicago Blackhawks 5-3 on Friday. "We found a way to win and thats all that really matters," said Anderson. "It felt good to come back from my whatever injury. Got back in there, get back in the saddle and it was good to see a lot of shots so you didnt have time to think and you just kind of read and react so it was really good." Clarke MacArthur had a goal and two assists to lead the charge while Erik Condra, Cody Ceci, Milan Michalek and Kyle Turris each scored for the Senators (30-29-14) Patrick Sharp, Marian Hossa and Brent Seabrook scored for Chicago (42-18-15). Antti Raanta faced 29 shots. Chicago has lost three of its last four outings and captain Jonathan Toews says there are too many mistakes happening when his team has possession of the puck. "Id say there was some good moments where we did have control of the puck where we were getting point shots and second efforts and some of the things were looking for when were playing good hockey," said Toews. "Other than that it was sloppy turnovers, sloppy mistakes that we really need to get out of our system. We need to get those plays out of our game. Its as simple as that. We need to play some character hockey. Frustrating way to lose." Toews wasnt alone in thinking the Blackhawks failed to show their best effort. "I didnt like our game," said Chicago head coach Joel Quenneville. "We had a good start and obviously giving up a shorthanded (goal) right off the bat they got some momentum off it and played well." Ottawa scored twice in the third and killed off a 34 second two-man advantage to hold off the Blackhawks before a crowd of 18,922 at the Canadian Tire Centre. Turris made it 4-2 with a power-play goal at the six-minute mark of the third and MacArthur scored his 23rd of the season midway through the period to make it 5-2. "I thought we competed better," said MacArthur. "We had a little lapse in the second, but youre playing Chicago and theyre going to make a push, but we were able to make plays in the third and not clam up." Frustration started to set in for Chicago midway through the third when Andrew Shaw speared Zack Smith. Shaw was assessed a major and game misconduct for his actions. After the game Smith admitted he was less than impressed by the play. "A spear is always looked upon as pretty bad for someone to do," said Smith. "Its kind of a cheap shot, especially where he was aiming, but you saw the replay." The Blackhawks made it 5-3 with a shorthanded goal at the 17-minute mark as Seabrooks shot from the point just trickled across the goal-line. Ottawa jumped out to a 3-0 lead, but by the end of the second it was a one-goal game. The Senators were outshot 23-5 in the middle period. Chicago got on the board midway through the second with a power-play goal as Sharp took a great pass from Jonathan Toews and tipped it past Anderson. Hossa made it 3-2 when he scored with 41 seconds remaining in the second period. Hossa intercepted a pass at the Ottawa blue-line, cut through two defencemen and squeezed the puck past Anderson. Ottawa had made it 3-0 just 23 seconds into the second as Michalek tipped in a shot off a pass from Spezza. "I thought we had a little more confidence," added MacArthur. "I thought overall we had a little lapse and those are going to happen, but we answered back in the third which is big and I thought our (defencemen) moved the puck a lot better, especially in the third when we were under pressure." The Senators held a 2-0 lead after the first 20 minutes. Condra made it 1-0, scoring shorthanded midway through the first. And Ceci made it 2-0 in the final minute of the period as he scored from just inside the blue line.

. He left in the 4th inning of Saturdays game against the Tigers after experiencing tightness. Reyes and the team still hope that he will be ready for Opening Day in Tampa Bay in one week.ALAMEDA, Calif. - Even as he tries to adjust to his role as the Oakland Raiders interim coach, Tony Sparano hasnt strayed far from his duties working with the teams offensive line.Its a good thing, too.With veteran lineman Khalif Barnes sitting out Sundays home game against San Diego with a quad strain, 2013 second-round pick Menelik Watson will make his fifth career start.Hes told us hes going to need us to step it up and be more responsible, Watson said Friday. With the vets we have, its not a problem. We do understand that he has a bigger role, but any chance we can get his views on how to things, its good. Were all excited about the new change and what hes doing and the direction hes taking us.Its not the ideal situation Sparano was hoping for with his team coming off the bye. Quarterback Derek Carr is nursing knee and foot injuries and will be facing a San Diego defence that is third overall and first in fewest points allowed.Because the Chargers occasionally use Dwight Freeney on the left side of the defence, its almost certain that Watson will face the seven-time Pro Bowl linebacker at some point.Theyre probably looking over preseason tapes and stuff like that, to get a feel for me, Watson said. Well, Im doing the same thing on him. Itll be exciting to get out there and compete against a guy like that.The 42nd overall pick in 2013, Watson made one nominal start as an extra offensive lineman earlier this season but has spent most of his time on special teams.The 6-foot-5-inch native of England, who played one year in junior college and another season at Florida State, was originally drafted to be thhe Raiders left tackle. http://www.discoveryukshoes.com/nike-air-max-90-best-color/air-max-90-black-and-grey.html
. . He started three games as a rookie then was moved to the right side this past off-season.Watson held onto the starting job through nearly the entire preseason before rookie Gabe Jackson beat out Barnes for the left guard spot. Barnes was shifted back to right tackle, pushing Watson back down the depth chart.That meant Watson had to get his work on the scout team while going against Oakland defensive ends Justin Tuck and LaMarr Woodley, along with first-round pick linebacker Khalil Mack.In Freeney, Watson faces a player who was once among the top pass rushers in the NFL. The 34-year-old is coming off an injury-shortened 2013 season and is showing signs of his former self, although Freeney has been limited in practice this week with a sore knee.Even slowed, Freeney will provide a stern test for Watson.Obviously, this is an important step for Menelik right now, Sparano said. He played a lot of snaps last week and did some good things and some things that need to be corrected. But its out there, its on tape, our opponent sees it and he knows hes gotta fix it.Based on what happened last year, you really have to treat him like a rookie in your approach to things. Youre starting all over again with him and hes really done a good job that way and I think hes getting better and better each week. Hell have his hands full this week, its a big challenge.Notes: CB Keith McGill (groin) did not practice and is out. CB Tarrell Brown (thumb) is probable. LB Sio Moore (ankle), FB Marcel Reece (quad) and WR Vincent Brown (hamstring) were limited and are all questionable. NFL Jerseys China
