LONDON, Ont. Emily Sonnett Jersey . - Nazem Kadri wanted to make sure his hometown fans went home happy on Monday night. Kadri had a goal and an assist in regulation time as the Toronto Maple Leafs edged the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 in the shootout in an NHL pre-season game in London, Ont. "Im from here and I just dont want to disappoint, I guess," said Kadri, who had 20 goals and 30 assists last season. "Production will be hugely important for me this year. Im an offensive player. My goal is also to become a player who is the whole package. I think I was better on the draws today and working coming back in my own end." David Booth was the lone scorer in the shootout. Booth, who had nine goals and 19 points with Vancouver last season, joined the Leafs in the off-season on a one-year deal signed in July. Matt Read and Michael Raffl built a 2-0 lead for the Flyers, who were the home team in this contest for line changes. Kadris goal late in the second period shifted the momentum for Toronto. He then set up Tom Nilsson for the tying goal 1:39 into the third period. Kadri sent a cross-ice pass to defenceman Nilsson breaking off the point and a one-timer beat Flyers goalie Anthony Stolarz. Stolarz is no stranger to London either, having played for the Ontario Hockey Leagues London Knights before Philadelphia selected him in the second round of the 2012 draft. Stolarz stopped 29 of 31 shots over 65 minutes. Starter Christopher Gibson stopped 11 of 12 in 31 minutes for Toronto, while Cal Heeter allowed a goal early in his second-half duty but recovered to be the winning goalie with 11 saves also on a dozen shots, plus three more saves in the shootout. "I think I came in a little cold. I was pretty flat-footed on that first goal (by Raffl)," admitted Heeter, who played in the Flyers system last year, including one appearance with Philadelphia and 44 more with the American Hockey Leagues Adirondack Phantoms. "I competed and battled well," said Heeter, who wore Flyers pads. "It wasnt the smoothest or best game Ive played. I was a little choppy at times with my movement and on some rebounds." It would appear Heeter, Gibson, Antoine Bibeau and Garret Sparks will battle for the two positions with the Toronto Marlies, with Jonathan Bernier and James Reimer owning the Leafs crease. Nick Cousins, who had 11 goals and 18 assists last season for the Phantoms, hopes to earn a full-time promotion as he contributed assists on both Philadelphia goals. Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle saw Torontos first pre-season game as a chance to assess his teams new defensive systems. "Its all about how well we did on working on the three things we are asking our players to concentrate on," said Carlyle. "Were working on defensive zone coverage, fore-checking systems, and play in the neutral zone. Carlyle said it was a chance for his new coaching staff to integrate with the Leafs players. "We really are not doing a lot of things drastically different, but we are working on some ideas with our new group of coaches here," said Carlyle, referring to new assistants Steve Spott and Peter Horachek. The two teams will meet again on Tuesday at Torontos Air Canada Centre at 7 p.m. ET. The Flyers other split squad edged the Washington Capitals 5-4 in Philadelphia on Monday. Megan Rapinoe Jersey . Thats exactly what happened. And they enjoyed every moment. Durant remained sizzling with 33 points, Serge Ibaka added 22 and the Thunder roared back from an abysmal start -- they trailed 22-4 early -- to embarrass the Miami Heat 112-95 on Wednesday night, erasing that big deficit out of the gate by outscoring the two-time defending champions by 43 points over a 33-minute span. Tobin Heath Jersey . With one penalty, Fourcade finished in 24 minutes, 58.2 seconds, just nine-tenths of a second ahead of Timofey Lapshin, who shot clean in the cold. . In the last race before the Sochi Olympics, Bjoergen followed up her win in the 10-kilometre classical race on Saturday by beating World Cup sprint leader Denise Herrmann of Germany by 0.43 seconds for her fifth victory of the season.DUNEDIN, Fla. -- Carlos Beltran homered for his first hit this spring, leading the New York Yankees past the Toronto Blue Jays 8-2 on Sunday. Jose Bautista hit his second homer in exhibition play for the Blue Jays. Beltrans solo home run came in the third off reliever Todd Redmond and landed far over the right-field fence. It capped a four-run inning that included a two-run homer by Eduardo Nunez. Beltran signed a three-year, $45 million contract with the Yankees in the off-season. He batted .296 with 24 homers and 84 RBIs with the St. Louis Cardinals last year. "You want to see guys swinging the bat well, obviously, but its really important at the end," Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. "It doesnt really matter sometimes. You can be swinging the bat horrible at the end of spring training and get off to a hot start and vice versa. But its always nice to see." Bautista connected off Vidal Nuno in the first. Nuno struck out three and gave up two hits in two innings. Toronto starter Esmil Rogers tossed two innings and allowed an earned run. The right-hander gave up three hits and struck out one. Jose Reyes, Edwin Encarnacion, Melky Cabrera and Adam Lind each doubled for the Blue Jays. Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter did not play. STARTING TIME Blue Jays: Rogers threw 36 pitches and worked almost-exclusively on his changeup, which he said is progressing well. "Thats what I was working for," Rogers said. "Down in the Dominican (Republic) during winter ball, I worked on my changeup and now I feel more comfortable. I got it before. The only reason is I didnt have too much confidence to throw that. Right now, I can throw anything I want." Rogers was 5-9 with a 4.77 ERA in 44 games with the Blue Jays last season. He is a candidate for the fifth spot in the rotation. Yankees: Nuno said he felt as if he "got a little happy with the fastball," which led to Bautistas home run. Nuno, who is a contender for the fifth spot in the rotation, appeared in five games with the Yankees last season and made three starts. He finished 1-2 with a 2.25 ERA. "Overall, Im just pleased a little bit with how the outcome came," he said. "It was just one pitch and Bautista just hit it out. Sam Mewis Jersey. Location was good and everything. (My fastball) just got overused a little bit and I wasnt using my secondary (pitches) like I was supposed to do." TRAINERS ROOM Blue Jays: Colby Rasmus was scratched from Sundays lineup because of a stiff neck. Rasmus was set to bat seventh, but opted to sit as a precaution. He does not expect it to be a long-term issue and hopes to return in a "couple days." "I feel all right, I just woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning," Rasmus said. Anthony Gose took Rasmus place in centre field and was 0 for 3 with a strikeout. Manager John Gibbons said closer Casey Janssen had an MRI on his sore right shoulder, but it did not show any damage. "Its just inflamed," Gibbons said. "Theres a lot of wear and tear on a guy over the years. Hes smart, backed off and well give him a little breather. Theres still a full month (of spring training) left. Hell be ready to go." Janssen, who saved 34 games for the Blue Jays last season, said he plans to rest and start throwing again in a few days. Yankees: Girardi said first baseman Mark Teixeira, limited to 15 games last season because of a right wrist injury, might play in his first spring training game on Thursday or Friday. Alfonso Soriano, recovering from flu-like symptoms, went through a workout Sunday morning that included batting practice and defensive drills. The outfielder/designated hitter could play in his first exhibition game in the next few days. FIRE DRILL The Yankees dealt with a minor scare before the game when a towel inside of a dryer caught fire in the grounds crew clubhouse located next door to the teams clubhouse. Girardi joked that "it got a little smoky" and said some players evacuated. There was no reported damage or injuries. PINEDA PITCHES Yankees fifth starter candidate Michael Pineda, who missed the past two seasons after right shoulder surgery, threw 21 of 35 pitches for strikes in a simulated game. He faced 10 batters, allowing two hits, striking out one and walking his final two hitters. Pineda and Hiroki Kuroda are scheduled to pitch in Fridays game against the Tigers in Tampa.
