Three weeks have passed since Hockey Canada announced its 25-player mens roster for the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. And in that time span, the Tampa Bay Lightning have remained near the top of the Eastern Conference without star forward Steven Stamkos. Playing a key role in the Lightnings recent success has been the play of veteran forward Martin St. Louis, who was passed over by his own general manager Steve Yzerman for a spot on the Canadian Olympic team. The veteran winger and team captain has been on a tear since the Olympic team announcement, racking up 14 points in 10 games since Jan. 7. "I dont think its motivation to be honest," said St. Louis, whose Lightning were set to face the Maple Leafs on Tuesday. "I feel like I played some good hockey this year - Ive had some good bounces - but I dont think (being left off the Olympic team) is motivation. "I mean, Im motivated for Game 1 or Game 10. To play in this league and be successful you need to be motivated. Its been like that my whole career. I dont think these last 10 games Ive been more motivated." St. Louis, who captured his second career Art Ross Trophy last season as the league leader in scoring, also grabbed the spotlight with the first four-goal game of his career against San Jose on Jan. 18.  And while hes taken much of the offensive workload in Stamkoss absence, he believes its been a team effort. "At first it was a little shock, obviously, to loose Stammer," he said. "But once the dust settled, we realized were where were at without him. "You have to juggle some lines and find a little bit of an identity. I think we settled down and played some pretty good hockey. We have a lot of young guys that have accelerated in terms of their progress with the amount of ice time theyre getting (and) theyve done well."                A lot of credit also goes to great chemistry with his teammates. Summer signing Valtteri Filppula is second in team scoring, while forwards Tyler Johnson, Alex Killorn and Ondrej Palat are making big contributions at both ends of the ice. "If you told us before the season started where wed be after Game 53 knowing all the adversity - not that I didnt believe wed be there - I would think a lot of things would have to go right for us to be here," said St. Louis. "Things have gone well considering all the adversity weve gone through." And at age 38, St. Louis himself is still going strong at a point-a-game pace. "Id like to think that Ive been pretty consistent the past few years," he said. "I expect myself to play like I have, so I dont think this year is better than others. "Obviously I had to adjust a little bit not playing with Stammer and I kind of had to re-invent myself a little with shooting the puck a little bit more. Its hard to shoot as much as I have when you play with a 60-goal guy." Jamie Benn Stars Jersey. The traditional pre-Masters event was halted early due to inclement weather. Harrington, who tied for first in 2003 and won in 2004, became the first three-time champion of the event. Kari Lehtonen Stars Jersey. -- Jonathan Diaz is easy to spot in the Blue Jays clubhouse. http://www.authenticstarsnhlhockey.com/dan-hamhuis-jersey/. The result means Atletico Madrid now tops the table, with Madrid level on points in second and Barcelona a point behind in third with nine games remaining as the title race shapes up to be the closest in years. Bobby Smith Jersey. THE MICHAEL JORDAN FLU GAME First this famous basketball moment.  The story goes like this. “Game 5, known as "The Flu Game", was one of Michael Jordans most memorable. Patrick Sharp Stars Jersey. Once again, the third baseman delivered in a big spot. Ramirez kept up his torrid hitting with a two-run homer to help back Wily Peraltas solid start, and the Brewers extended their winning streak to seven with a 4-2 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia -- Sit-skier Josh Dueck finally has the Paralympic gold medal hes been craving after winning the mens super combined Friday with a memorable come-from-behind victory. The 33-year-old from Kimberley, B.C., entered the days super-G run in fifth place after Tuesdays slalom portion of the race, but laid down the fastest time to win by 0.89 seconds. "Im stunned, speechless, to the moon," said Dueck, who finished with a combined time of two minutes 18.20 seconds for the first gold medal of his Paralympic career. "This is definitely the one achievement that was missing on my bookshelf." "I dont like to focus on the outcome of whats going on, but I wanted this and it feels freaking great," he added. Duecks performance gave Canada its third gold medal at the Games following back-to-back victories by visually impaired cross-country skier Brian McKeever. Dueck also won a silver on the first day of competition at Rosa Khutor to go with a second-place finish in the slalom at the Vancouver Paralympics four years ago. Another warm day in the mountains favoured Dueck as he bolted to the top of the leaderboard. "I knew had a shot but theres some really good skiers that were in front of me and they had a little bit of time in the bank," he said. "This hill favours a guy like me. I dont necessarily create the most energy from my ski and the guys in front of me do and the conditions were soft. It was about being smooth and being smart. "The other fellas, they pushed it, which is awesome, but maybe more than the hill would allow for and because of that today is my day ... today is our day." Because of bad weather this week, there was a three-day break between the slalom and super-G runs, but it clearly didnt faze the Canadian. "Ive had a lot of experiences," said Dueck, who was left a paraplegic after breaking his back on a jump in 2004. "It seems like the more challenging the scenario, the more into it I get." Heath Calhoun of thhe United States took silver with a time of 2:19.dddddddddddd9, while Austrias Roman Rabl clocked in at 2:20.20 to win bronze. Canada is fifth in the overall medal tally with 11 -- three gold, two silvers and six bronze. Russia continues to dominate, leading the standings with 64 medals, including 25 gold. Ukraine is second with 20 medals. "I couldnt be more proud of the team of people Im working with," said Dueck. "This belongs to the whole team. This is a collective. Their energy was flowing through me, all the work that theyve done to make me ready for this moment." Dueck said he doesnt think the magnitude of his victory will hit home until he sees his wife and baby daughter when he returns to Canada. "When I see her and when I hold my ladies, thats when its really going to sink in for me because this is our journey," he said. "Im going to enjoy this today. Im going to celebrate for everybody here thats been a part of it. I truly think that its going to sink in (on) a whole new level when I get home and hold my girls. Its theirs as much as it is mine." Asked whether he would still compete in Saturdays giant slalom race -- not one of his premier events -- Dueck said he would assess his energy level and the course in the morning. "Im going to get a good nights sleep," he said. "This is for my country. This is for my team. If it was all about me it would definitely be a late night tonight. Its not about me. Its about the work that everybody puts into this." In other Canadian results Friday, Mark Arendz of Hartsville, P.E.I., battled through a head cold to finish 11th in the mens 15-kilometre biathlon event while Ottawas Caroline Bisson was 12th in the competed in the womens 12.5-kilometre standing race. In snowboarding, which made its Paralympic debut, John Leslie of Arnprior, Ont., was seventh while Tyler Mosher of Whistler, B.C., was 12th and Ian Lockey of Rossland, B.C., was 21st. Calgarys Michelle Salt was ninth in the womens race. china nfl jerseys ' ' '
