UCLA Preview CapsuleBy The Associated Press=UCLALast season: 15-17.Nickname: Bruins.Coach: Steve Alford.Conference: Pac-12.Whos gone: F/C Tony Parker, G/F Jonah Bolden.Whos back: G Isaac Hamilton. Senior led the Bruins with 16.8 points per game last season. G Bryce Alford. He enters his final season playing for his father. He averaged 16.1 points and a team-high 5.2 assists last season. C Thomas Welsh. The 7-foot junior averaged 11.2 points and 8.5 rebounds. G Aaron Holiday. He averaged 10.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists playing 31 minutes a game as a freshman last season, but could be relegated to coming off the bench. F G.G. Goloman. The 6-foot-11 junior averaged 12.1 minutes last season. G Prince Ali. Solid defensive player who averaged 11.8 minutes last season.Whos new: G Lonzo Ball. Well-regarded for his court vision and playmaking ability. The highly touted freshman is expected to be a one-and-done prospect. F T.J. Leaf. The athletic 6-foot-9 power forward was a McDonalds All-American who scored 3,022 points in his prep career. F/C Ike Anigbogu. The 6-9, 250-pounder gives the Bruins a different look at center than Welsh and could play his way into a larger role.The Skinny: Alford guided UCLA to just the fourth losing season in school history since John Wooden was hired in 1948. Hes got nearly everyone back and bolstered by one of the top recruiting classes in the country, including national player of the year Ball, the Bruins have nowhere to go but up after missing the postseason. Jeurys Familia Jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. David Wright Mets Jersey . The All-Pro lineman got the leg bent under him while trying to make a tackle during the first half of a 22-20 overtime loss at Miami on Thursday night. The medical staff initially thought hed torn the ligament, and the test a day later in Cincinnati confirmed it. http://www.metssale.com/mets-devin-mesoraco-jersey/ .

Keon Broxton Jersey .Y. - Nelson Mandela will be honoured by the New York Yankees with a plaque in Monument Park. As they continue to lose players, the Tampa Bay Lightning keep winning games.The formula makes no sense, but Tampa Bay has overcome a spate of injuries to win its past four as it tries to finish off a sweep of its five-game road trip Monday night against the Nashville Predators.A 3-0 win over the Flyers in Philadelphia on Saturday was emblematic of the trip. Already without star center Steven Stamkos (right knee) for four months, the Lightning had to scratch left winger Brian Boyle and defenseman Anton Strelman due to upper-body injuries, forcing coach Jon Cooper to utilize a lineup with seven defensemen and only 11 forwards.By the second period, center Brayden Point, along with left wingers Jonathan Druoin and Ryan Callahan, were in the trainers room getting treatment for injuries. Before all three returned for the third period, the team was down to eight forwards.I think there was one point I got back on the bench and I was asking where everyone was, center Tyler Johnson said. I didnt know what was going on. Thats always pretty tough. You dont really play like that, except for when you were about 9 years old, so its been a while.Johnson must have enjoyed the flashback to his childhood. He scored Tampa Bays first goal, the only one it would need as Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped all 32 Flyers shots to nab his second consecutive shutout.During its successful journey through the New York Islanders, Detroit Red Wings, Buffalo Sabres and Philly, the Lightning (12-6-1) have outscored their opponents 15-4, enabling them to move within five points of first-place the Moontreal Canadiens in the Atlantic Division.ddddddddddddWe have a lot of depth on this team, said Drouin, who sealed the Saturday win with a goal at 4:26 of the third period. We have had a lot of that for the past couple of years. I think everyone is elevating their play with Stamkos out.While Tampa Bay keeps overcoming adversity, Nashville (7-7-3) continues to create problems for itself by failing to win on the road. A 3-1 defeat to the Blues on Saturday night in St. Louis dropped the Predators to 2-6-2 away from Music City, compared with their 5-1-1 mark in Bridgestone Arena.The Predators played the Blues even for two periods but gave up two goals in just over four minutes midway through the third period and finished their three-game road trip at 1-2-0.Until that second goal, I thought we had a really good chance to get two points in this game, but it didnt happen, Predators defenseman P.K. Subban said.Based on this seasons early form chart, Nashville should thrive this week. The Predators are set to start a three-game homestand that sees the Dallas Stars and Winnipeg Jets arrive in town Wednesday and Friday, respectively.Its always nice to go home, Nashville defenseman Roman Josi said. Weve been playing well at home.Right winger James Neal is the key to the offense lately for the Predators. His six-game goal-scoring streak was snapped in St. Louis, but Neal remains one of the NHLs hottest players with seven goals in seven games. ' ' '
