The Toronto Maple Leafs did not play their best game in the opener of a home-and-home series against the rival Detroit Red Wings, but the Leafs have a chance to rebound in tonights rematch in the Motor City. Toronto hosted the Red Wings on Friday and dropped a 4-1 decision at Air Canada Centre. The setback halted the Leafs two-game winning streak, while Detroit snapped a two-game slide of its own with the victory. Johan Franzen scored twice and Henrik Zetterberg had four assists to lead the Red Wings in Fridays encounter. Zetterberg entered the game with just one assist on the season before breaking out with a four-point night against the Leafs. (Zetterberg) is the leader of our team and we expect him to be good, Detroit head coach Mike Babcock said. When hes not, we expect him to respond, and he did tonight. Gustav Nyquist continued his quick start to the season, scoring in his fourth straight game to begin 2014-15. He has four goals and one assist. Justin Abdelkader netted the other goal for Detroit, while Jimmy Howard made 23 saves in the win. Jonas Gustavsson will see his first action of the season on Saturday, as Howards backup expects to face his former team for the first time. Gustavsson spent three seasons with the Maple Leafs from 2009-10 to 2011-12. Red Wings placed goaltender Jimmy Howard on the 48-hour injured reserve with a sore groin. General manager Ken Holland made the announcement Saturday afternoon. Franzen, meanwhile, is questionable for the home-and-home finale after leaving Fridays tilt midway through the second period. The Swedish forward was unable to return after suffering leg spasms, but theres a chance he could be play tonight. Mike Santorelli supplied Torontos lone goal and James Reimer allowed all four goals on 35 shots in defeat. Extremely disappointed, Toronto head coach Randy Carlyle said. We played too much on our heels in the defensive zone. Jonathan Bernier will likely start in net for the Leafs tonight. He is 2-2-1 with a 3.06 goals against average in seven career games against Detroit. The Leafs will be without forward Brandon Kozun after the rookie suffered a lower-body injury in the second period of Fridays contest. Matt Frattin will replace Kozun in the lineup tonight. Detroits victory on Friday gives the club a three-game winning streak in this series. The Red Wings also have won four of five and five of the last seven meetings in this series. Although the Maple Leafs posted a victory in last seasons Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium, the Red Wings have claimed two in a row and four of the last five encounters at Joe Louis Arena. Al Kaline Jersey . LUCIE, Fla. Don Mattingly Jersey . In fact, cranky would best describe the Celtics mood as they packed for a trip home to play Milwaukee on Wednesday. "It was a win, thats all it was for us," Boston coach Doc Rivers said. .C. -- Andrew Svoboda won the Chiquita Classic on Sunday, beating Will MacKenzie with a par on the first hole of a playoff in the second tournament in the four-event Web. Keith Hernandez mets Jersey . The Impact (2-6-4) host D.C. United tonight before a two-week respite from Major League Soccer, and Bernier says a tough defeat against third-place United (6-4-4) could hurt the teams morale, and undo much of their recent success. Kirby Puckett Jersey . Scott and playing partner Rickie Fowler marked their balls on the 12th fairway after a severe storm warning suspended play with Scott holding a one-shot lead. When Scott returned, his iron shot from the fairway nearly holed out for an albatross and he made the 1-foot eagle putt.CLEVELAND - The Cavaliers tried to make it work with Dion Waiters. They couldnt wait any longer.Cleveland traded the shooting guard to Oklahoma City on Monday night and acquired guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert from the New York Knicks in a three-team deal.A disappointing 19-16 after losing at Philadelphia, the Cavs dealt Waiters to the Thunder in exchange for Oklahoma Citys protected 2015 first-round pick. Also, the Cavs sent reserves Lou Amundson and Alex Kirk and their 2019 second-round pick to the Knicks, who are 5-32 and desperate to clear salary-cap space.New York also received forward Lance Thomas from Oklahoma City.The Cavs have been ravaged by injuries in superstar LeBron James first season back in Cleveland and needed to shake things up. The team had discussed moving Waiters, the No. 4 overall pick, over the past two years and finally struck a deal. Both James and All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving sat out against the Sixers because of injuries.Waiters was pulled from the starting lineup in Philadelphia — his hometown — shortly before the Cavs lost to the lowly 76ers, who got their first home win. The 6-foot-4 Waiters began the season in Clevelands starting lineup, but was removed after three games. He made some defensive strides, but too often Waiters seemed mostly concerned about scoring.Dion is a talented player with potential ahead of him, Cavs general manager David Griffin said. Trades like this are always difficult to make because there are relationships and bonds built and that was the case with Dion. At the same time, were very excited to welcome Iman and J.R. to Cleveland. With their size and versatility, we think both Iman and J.R. can help our team on both ends of the court and we look forward to them joining us.The mercurial Smith, who has never been afraid to shoot, could give Clevelands bench the offensive boost first-year coach David Blatt has been looking for all season. Waiters had some success coming in as a reserve, but he never seemed comfortable in that role and the Cavs finally found him a new home.Smith is a bit of a wild card, and it will be interesting to see how he interacts with Clevelands current roster. He has known James for several years, which should ease the transition.Smith was the NBAs Sixth Man of the Year in 2013, but has battled injuries to his heel this season, along with his usual struggles with shot selection and focus off the court.ddddddddddddShumpert, who has been sidelined with a dislocated shoulder, is regarded as a solid perimeter defender. He had been starting before his injury, averaging 9.3 points, and will probably start for Cleveland.Griffins trade came a day after he offered support to Blatt, who is still adjusting in his first NBA season. It hasnt helped that James is out for at least another week with a strained back and knee, Irving missed Mondays game with a back issue and starting centre Anderson Varejao is done for the season after tearing his Achilles and undergoing surgery.Cleveland remains in the market for a big man and have assets remaining to pull off another deal. The Cavs are entering a tough part of their schedule with a home game on Wednesday against Houston before a give-game West Coast trip.We have to get as many players as we can get back, centre Kevin Love said after the loss in Philadelphia. Were about to hit murderers row now on the West Coast. We need to keep fighting. Were down, but not out.The Thunder, who have had their own injury issues, believe Waiters can bring immediate help. Waiters is versatile, can score and should add some firepower to Oklahoma Citys second unit.Dion Waiters is a player that weve tracked and liked since his time at Syracuse, in the NBA, and with USA Basketball, general manager Sam Presti said. Dion provides another proven scorer that positively impacts our roster and adds depth and flexibility. We have a lot of respect for his toughness and competitiveness, and believe that he is a physical playmaker who will enhance the versatility of our team.New Yorks season is as good as over, and moving Smith and Shumpert will give Knicks President Phil Jackson some future flexibility, maybe quiet the booing in Madison Square Garden and relieve some of the pressure on rookie coach Derek Fisher.The moves will allow him to trim more millions off the salary cap, which will allow them to pursue free agents this summer. The team released centre Samuel Dalembert and is expected to do the same with Amundson and Kirk.As our journey moves through this season, we will search for the type of players that fit the style we hope to exhibit for our fans, Jackson said. Our desire is to improve our ability to compete. ... These transactions improve our flexibility to the current roster and the salary cap for future seasons. cheap nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
