Burns has hat trick in Sharks' 6-3 win over Blues

Saturday, 30 November 2013 00:17 Published in Sports

 

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Brent Burns got his first NHL hat trick and the Sharks ended a five-game home losing streak to St. Louis with a 6-3 victory over the Blues on Friday.

Joe Thornton, Tomas Hertl and Tommy Wingels also scored for the Sharks, who won their fourth straight and seven of eight.

Ian Cole scored his first goal in nearly two years as the Blues had their five-game winning streak halted. David Backes and Jaden Schwartz also scored for St. Louis.

Antti Niemi stopped 21 of 24 shots for his 14th win of the season. Brian Elliott took the loss, his first in eight games, after giving up four goals on 12 shots. He was lifted for Jaroslav Halak, who had 18 saves.

The Blues, who earned points in their previous nine games, were off to their best road start in franchise history, bringing a 7-2-1 mark into the game.

Burns scored 35 seconds into the game, taking a nice pass from Patrick Marleau and flipping the puck over Elliott's right shoulder. Logan Couture, who has not scored a goal in seven straight, started the sequence after intercepting a clearing pass.

Thornton scored a power-play goal at 3:01, the first allowed by the Blues in six games and just the second on the road. Couture took a shot that bounced off Elliott's pad and Joe Pavelski flipped it out to Thornton, who beat Elliott to the glove side.

Burns scored his second goal of the game at 9:14 of the first, set up with a pass from Thornton.

Wingels picked up a flubbed pass to Jay Bouwmeester and had a give-and-go with Couture to make it 4-0, getting a good rebound off Elliott's glove and into the net at 11:27.

Cole, who last scored on Dec. 8, 2011, against the Anaheim Ducks, a span of 43 games, rattled the puck off the right post and had it trickle into the net.

The scoring sequence began when Halak made a terrific save and got the puck out to a streaking Roman Polak.

Backes, who took a 10-minute misconduct late in the second period, made it 4-2 with a power-play goal at 2:02 of the third period, with Derek Roy giving him a backhand pass to set up the score.

Schwartz drilled the puck off Niemi's glove on a give-and-go with Vladimir Sobotka to bring the Blues within one midway at 11:19 of the final period.

Burns got the hat trick when he converted a power-play goal at 12:19. He sneaked it past Halak on the stick side.

Hertl added an empty-net goal in the final minute.

NOTES: Thornton has 17 points in his past 15 games. ... The Blues allowed a third-period goal for the first time in eight games. Their 14 third-period goals allowed is the third fewest. ... Roy has points in five of six games. ... The Sharks scored their first power-play goal since Nov. 15, a span of seven games. ... Couture has not scored a goal in a season-long seven games and has one goal in his past 11.

Missouri beats Northwestern 78-67

Friday, 29 November 2013 10:30 Published in Sports

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Missouri's biggest concern heading to the Las Vegas Invitational was how to establish a frontcourt presence.

Coach Frank Haith said he got what he was looking for Thursday night, particularly from Johnathan Williams and Ryan Rosburg, two of four Tigers to score in double figures in a 78-67 win over Northwestern in the tournament's opening round.

Jordan Clarkson scored 13 of his 21 points in the second half to lead Missouri, while Williams and Rosburg each had 14.

"We've relied on only (Clarkson and Jabari Brown) early this season, and we needed to get production out of our post guys," Haith said. "That was the first step toward that tonight, with Ryan and J3 (Williams) getting in double figures. Both those guys having the kind of night they had, I think that's important for us as we move forward."

The Tigers, who outscored Northwestern in the paint 40-14, scored the first 14 points of the second half to erase a five-point halftime deficit and take a 48-39 lead at the 15:10 mark and never looked back.

After Northwestern's second-half drought was ended by JerShon Cobb, who scored a game-high 22 points, the Tigers extended their lead to 13, when Brown hit a 3-pointer to give them a 54-41 advantage. The 6-foot-5 junior guard wasn't finished, as he scored five of his team's next 10 points and dished a nifty backward pass to Clarkson, who finished with a one-handed slam dunk that exemplified the Tigers' transition game.

"That's the way we play, we like to get up and down and play in transition," Clarkson said. "In the second half we tightened things up and pressured the ball. And that helped us get out into the transition game. We want to stamp our identity on the defensive end, playing hard. If we play hard on defense, we're going to get those easy shots, those easy dunks. And that's how we play, that's where we're most comfortable."

Said Haith: "I think that's when our team is at its best. That's one of our strengths. We play well in transition. But you ... gotta play defense in order for that to happen. I thought that keyed our ability to get transition buckets."

Missouri (6-0), which went from shooting 0-for-7 from the 3-point line in the first 20 minutes to shooting 4-of-7 in the second half, held Northwestern to just 36.4 percent shooting in the second half, compared with the Wildcats' 50 percent shooting from the field in the first half.

There were six ties and six lead changes in the first half, and the Wildcats connected on 6 of 13 jumpers from 3-point range. Cobb led the charge early, shooting 4 for 6 from the field (3-of-5 from 3-point range) en route to 16 points in the first half. After falling behind 19-13 midway through the first half, Northwestern went on a 26-15 run to take a 39-34 halftime lead.

But it was Missouri's defensive intensity in the second half that thwarted every effort by Northwestern, which missed its first six shots after halftime.

"The more stops we got, we were getting more confident," Haith said. "We had better movement in the second half. Once we were able to do that, we were able to attack, we had better ball movement from side to side, (and) I thought we did a great job of that.

"And we attacked in the paint. When teams sag like that, and we were still able to get those points in the paint, that's good and that's what we gotta do."

Tre Demps and Nathan Taphorn each scored 11 for Northwestern (4-3).

Missouri, which won by double digits for the fifth time this season, is now 13-4 on a neutral court under Haith. Since 2011, the Tigers are 17-1 in the month of November, and dating back to 2006 have won 44 of their 50 games in the month.

The Tigers, who played on Thanksgiving Day for the second consecutive year, face Nevada on Friday, while Northwestern (4-3) will play No. 19 UCLA.

Poinsettias on sale at SEMO

Friday, 29 November 2013 08:46 Published in Local News

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - Horticulture students at Southeast Missouri State University have evaluated 42 varieties of holiday poinsettias and are selling the plants to the public.

Three breeding companies sent rooted cuttings to the Cape Girardeau school's greenhouse in August. Greenhouse staff and students grew the plants and sent their analysis to each company.

Greenhouse manager Denise Pingel says seven of the varieties haven't been released to the market for commercial production.

She says most of the plants are red, but the greenhouse also tested a few varieties of white, pink and burgundy poinsettias and some with multiple colors.

The sale of several thousand poinsettias began last week and continues through Dec. 24.
