gibility for Jennings, but prospects for approval appe from jcy123's blog

CHICAGO -- Brandon Bollig will join the Chicago Blackhawks lineup for Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final, replacing Viktor Stalberg on the fourth line. Vans Old Skool Sale . The only change for either team is designed to bring some more physicality to a series that should have plenty of it. "I think hes pretty smart on knowing what he brings to our team," Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said. "We want him to play hard, smart, within the whistles (and) bring that element." That element involves using his six-foot-two, 223-pound frame against a big Bruins team that dispatched the New York Rangers and Pittsburgh Penguins without much difficulty to reach the final. Bollig hasnt played since May 5. "Its been a while," Bollig said after the Blackhawks morning skate at United Center. "Its a lot different, but weve all been there, maybe not in the final but weve all played playoff games. So Im hoping to just hit the ground running here." Bollig is expected to skate with Marcus Kruger and Michael Frolik. "Hes a big guy and he can skate, he can hit," Frolik said of Bollig. This will be the 26-year-olds eighth Stanley Cup playoff game. He had 21 penalty minutes in his first seven. "Every little play is all the more important, and obviously were looking to stay out of the box," Bollig said. "I think you definitely have to kind of find the line and maybe push the envelope, but not too far." Quenneville said discipline is a constant point of emphasis, and that doesnt change with Bollig. Captain Jonathan Toews provided a prime example in Game 4 of the Western Conference semifinals against the Detroit Red Wings of what can happen if a player loses his composure, taking three penalties in one period. The Blackhawks would like Toews play measured in points, not penalty minutes. Quenneville mixed up his Game 1 lines, splitting up Toews and Patrick Kane to balance out his offence. Bruins coach Claude Julien insisted Toews and Kane playing on separate lines doesnt affect his team. "We just have to react to it in a way whoever is on the ice," Julien said. "Weve said that before, whoever is on the ice has to be aware of the other teams players on the ice." Boston isnt making any changes for Wednesday nights Game 1. Vans Old Skool Kopen . The Court of Arbitration for Sport ruling "puts an end to my dreams of being a top player," the 27-year-old Troicki said in a statement.

Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval.

Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. NEW ORLEANS -- Allenzae Staggers set New Orleans Bowl records with 11 catches for 230 yards and also scored a touchdown to help Southern Mississippi beat Louisiana-Lafayette 28-21 on Saturday night.Nick Mullens, the Southern Miss all-time leader in yards passing and passing touchdowns, finished his distinguished career by throwing for 346 yards and two TDs.One of Mullens TD tosses was a 6-yarder to running back Ito Smith, who also rushed for 138 yards and two scores.However, Mullens turnovers helped the Ragin Cajuns keep the game competitive despite the Golden Eagles (7-6) outgaining ULL (6-7) 481 yards to 252.Mullens second-quarter fumble and fourth-quarter interception both led to Cajuns touchdowns, the latter on a short run by ULL quarterback Anthony Jennings that trimmed Southern Miss lead to 28-21 with 5:10 to go.ULL got the ball back once more, starting on its own 18-yard line with 2:02 to go, but Jennings overthrew a fourth-down pass as he rolled right.Jennings scored twice on runs for the Ragin Cajuns, who often struggled to move the ball through the air. A transfer who once started for LSU, Jennings completed 8 of 20 passes for 95 yards. He was intercepted once -- by Tarvarius Moore on the Southern Miss goal line -- and sacked six times, including three times by JaBoore Pool.REGROUPINGThe Cajuns composure was tested early. Mullens completed his first three passes for 127 yards and a touchdown to Smith, who also rushed for the games opening TD as the Golden Eagles took a 14-0 lead inside the first 8 minutes.But ULL methodically pulled itself back into the game, starting when Jennings led a nine-play, 66-yard drive capped by his 4-yard TD to make it 14-7. In thee second quarter, Tremaine Lightfoots sack and strip of Mullens was scooped and returned 15 yards by Otha Peters to the Southern Miss 29, setting up a tying 12-yard TD run by reserve QB Dion Ray, who periodically ran plays out of a wildcat formation.

TAKING THEIR TIMEAs the first half ended, Mullens rushed the Southern Miss offense to the line of scrimmage to try to spike the ball and stop the clock so the Golden Eagles could try a 45-yard field goal. The clock read zero after his spike, but officials ordered 1 second put back on the clock. Louisiana-Lafayette then used both of its remaining timeouts in an effort to disrupt kicker Parker Shaunfields rhythm. After the second timeout, officials decided to review the previous play and ruled that time had expired after all, ending the half in a 14-all tie.UP NEXTSouthern Miss: The first order of business is to find a replacement for Mullens, who leaves the Golden Eagles as the programs career leader in yards passing (11,994) and TD passes (87). Complicating that transition at QB is the departure of three-year starting center Cameron Tom and starting guards Oliver Bates and Brandon Farmer.Louisiana-Lafayette: The Cajuns are expected to apply to the NCAA for another year of eligibility for Jennings, but prospects for approval appear slim. The next QB could come from the junior college ranks. The offense also loses Elijah McGuire, who ranks second all-time in rushing for ULL, and top receiver Al Riles.---More AP college football: and ' ' '
