The defending champion Chicago Blackhawks have returned to the number one spot in the NHL Power Rankings, their first time in the top ranking since the preseason. The Blackhawks have one regulation loss in their past 16 games and their surge, combined with a few injuries to the division-rival St. Louis Blues, gives Chicago top spot ahead of St. Louis and the Anaheim Ducks, who have lost once in their past 14 games. Its tough sledding to crack the top tier. Getting healthier, with the returns of centre Evgeni Malkin and defencemen Brooks Orpik and Kris Letang, the Pittsburgh Penguins move up from seven to four. Further down the list, the Toronto Maple Leafs move up from 20 to 16, going 4-1-2 in their past seven games, though that one -- a 7-1 home loss to the New York Rangers Saturday -- was particularly ugly. The Leafs are one spot ahead of the rising Ottawa Senators, who have a 5-1-1 record in the past seven games, jumping from 25 to 17. Despite losing centre Eric Staal to injury, the Carolina Hurricanes, winners of four straight, climb from 26 to 22. Heading the other way, the Los Angeles Kings were unceremoniously dumped from top spot, having lost five of their past six games and sending goaltender Martin Jones back to the AHL. The Tampa Bay Lightning sink from 14 to 21 after goaltender Ben Bishop, my midseason Vezina pick, suffered an upper-body injury. Injuries have ravaged the lineup of the Minnesota Wild, as left winger Zach Parise, centre Mikko Koivu, defenceman Jared Spurgeon and goaltender Josh Harding are all on the injured list and that results in a drop from 15 to 23. The New Jersey Devils, having lost Patrik Elias to injury again, sink from 19 to 26. Among the rest of Canadian teams, the Vancouver Canucks fall from five to seven, a couple of spots ahead of the Montreal Canadiens. The Winnipeg Jets gain a couple spots, from 16 to 14, while the Calgary Flames drop from 23 to 27 and the Edmonton Oilers remain at 28.

Which is to say, the top of this years draft class is not as dynamic or exciting as the 2013 class of Nate MacKinnon, Sasha Barkov, Jonathan Drouin and Seth Jones and its not as strikingly promising as the highly-anticipated 2015 slate of Connor McDavid, Jack Eichel and Noah Hanifin. Pedro Martinez Red Sox Jersey . 11 Ana Ivanovic and American Sloane Stephens, and former world No. ... ersey-c-9/. Basketball fans around the globe will be watching as Kobe Bryant makes his season debut - 240 days after tearing his left Achilles - against Toronto, a team he has used as his own personal punching bag. Xander Bogaerts Red Sox Jersey . - Urijah (The California Kid) Faber finds himself in an unaccustomed position Saturday night at UFC 175 — on the preliminary card. Bill Lee Red Sox Jersey . It took five games, but the Celtics finally helped Stevens earn his first NBA victory. "Im going to celebrate for a whole 12 minutes, and then Im going to start watching Orlando and trying to figure them out," the first-year Celtics coach said after Boston beat the Utah Jazz, one of the leagues other winless teams, 97-87 on Wednesday night.(The Notorious) Conor McGregor is one win away from a title shot, a championship clash that will make UFC history if the brash Irish featherweight has his way.McGregor hopes to challenge 145-pound champion Jose Aldo, second only to light-heavyweight title-holder Jon (Bones) Jones in the UFCs pound-for-pound rankings. And he hopes to dethrone the Brazilian before a record crowd outdoors in Dublin at either Croke Park (his preference given its rich history) or Aviva Stadium.UFC president Dana White believes McGregor could sell out 90,000 tickets in Ireland. The UFC record is 55,724, set at UFC 129 in April 2011 at Torontos Rogers Centre.It will be the biggest fight that division has ever had. And it will be the biggest payday Aldos ever had, White said recently.But first, McGregor (16-2) must dispose of German veteran Dennis Siver (22-9 with one no contest) in the main event of a televised card at Bostons TD Garden on Saturday night.Ali needed Frazier, Bird needed Magic and the list goes on and on. And thats what McGregor is for Aldo, UFC boss Dana White said in a recent chat with reporters in Las Vegas.But everybody just assumes hes going to walk through Siver. Nobody thought he was going to beat (Dustin) Poirier but now hes just going to walk right through Siver. I dont ever count the chickens til they hatch man, believe me, because anything can happen in this sport so well see what happens.McGregor, whose four UFC wins have included three first-round stoppages, is ranked fifth among 145-pound contenders. Siver, who at 36 is 10 years older, is No. 10 on the featherweight pecking order.McGregor, who fights very well and talks even better, says its no longer personal as the fight nears.As the fight gets closer, I have no thoughts, he said in an interview. The face becomes blank. Simply a new body type that I must figure out a way to (beat).That wont take long Saturday, he believes. McGregor, who has won 12 straight, predicts a victory within two minutes.With Siver not speaking English and generally averse to trash talk, the pre-fight banter has been less than most McGregor fights.I dont engage with cheats, McGregor said in a shot at the German, who was suspended for nine months after failing a UFC 168 drug test in December 2013.Siver blamed a supplement for the failed test. McGregor isnt buying it, saying Siver tried to hide the doping.So Im sure hes probably on something right now, he said. I will go in there and I will be ruthless with him. I will really hurt him bad if thee referee doesnt step in there.ddddddddddddiver said he made one mistake in the past, but was clean otherwise. And he insists he is clean in the present and will continue to be so.Its a measure of McGregors draw that this is his second UFC main event — the first was a July win over Brazilian Diego Brandao in his native Dublin.The fight before that, McGregor wasnt even on the main card for his Boston bout with Max Holloway, although he was one of the stars of the show.Nothing happens overnight. Sometimes youll find people that are so different than the norm, like a Conor McGregor, White said in a recent chat with reporters in Las Vegas. This kids had a couple of fights in the UFC, (and hes now) selling out the Boston Garden. What he did in Ireland. Even here in Vegas (against Poirier at UFC 178) was crazy.Those guys are one in a million.Reebok has jumped on the McGregor bandwagon, giving the featherweight a featured role in its UFC sponsorship deal along with the likes of Jones and fellow champions Ronda Rousey and Anthony Pettis, and former title-holder Johny Hendricks.McGregor reacted to the news with typical bluster.Congratulations to @Reebok on netting the biggest signature in the game. #StayReady, he tweeted.But science has backed up McGregors hype.Recent tests at the Center for Sport Performance at Cal State Fullerton demonstrated McGregors athleticism. The Irish fighter broke the lab record for balance, erasing the mark set by pro surfer Keanu Asing, and angular velocity, set by golfer Rory McIlroy. All we test in our lab is elite-level athletes. So what we found out today is not that Conor is elite. Hes elite compared to the elites, said Dr. Andy Galpin, a Cal State professor of kinesiology.Science, baby, said a contented McGregor.McGregor is fast and furious. He connects with 4.6 significant strikes per minute, a rate 60 per cent faster than the UFC average of 2.83, with three knockdowns in his four UFC fights. And hes never been put on his back in the Octagon.Aldo made his thoughts clear about McGregor last October after defeating No. 1 contender Chad Mendes for a second time at UFC 179 in Rio de Janeiro with McGregor watching.I think the court is complete, Aldo said in the cage after, through an interpreter. Im the king, Chads the prince, and now we have a joker.Aldo (25-1) has won seven straight in the UFC, bringing his 145-pound title over from the WEC where he won eight in a row.He won his title in November 2009.Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter Cheap Denver Nuggets Jerseys Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys Cheap Oklahoma City Thunder Jerseys Cheap Portland Trail Blazers Jerseys Cheap Utah Jazz Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Clippers Jerseys Cheap Los Angeles Lakers Jerseys Cheap Phoenix Suns Jerseys Cheap Sacramento Kings Jerseys Cheap Dallas Mavericks Jerseys Cheap Houston Rockets Jerseys Cheap Memphis Grizzlies Jerseys Cheap New Orleans Pelicans Jerseys Cheap San Antonio Spurs Jerseys Cheap Golden State Warriors Jerseys ' ' '
