HAMILTON, Ont. Delanie Walker Titans Jersey . -- The Hamilton Bulldogs tempted fate one too many times against the American Hockey Leagues top power-play unit on Saturday. The Texas Stars scored two power-play goals in the second period, erasing a two-goal deficit, before eventually winning the game 3-2 in overtime. "Each time that weve played (the Stars), weve played them physically, especially on their top line," said Bulldogs head coach Sylvain Lefebvre. "We played a really good first period, but the penalties were costly, especially in the end." Chris Mueller had three points, including the game-winning goal in overtime, while Travis Morin and Curtis McKenzie also scored for the Stars (30-15-6). Cristopher Nilstorp made 25 saves in the win. Nick Tarnasky and Louis Leblanc had goals for the Bulldogs (22-22-5), while Dustin Tokarski stopped 45 shots in a losing effort. Hamilton took an early lead when Tarnasky stole the puck from a Texas defender in the neutral zone and broke in alone on Nilstorp. The winger kept things simple, launching a rising slap shot from the top of the left circle that trickled between the goaltenders arm and body and slid across the goal line at 4:03 of the first period. Chances were at a premium as the period wore on, with both teams content to play primarily in the neutral zone. But it was a rare passing play that brought the Bulldogs their second goal of the game at 16:32. Patrick Holland moved the puck out to Martin St. Pierre on the left wing, as Hamilton broke into the Texas zone with numbers. The Bulldog captain waited as Leblanc caught up to the play, and slid a drop pass to him that Leblanc snapped high and hard, and past Nilstorp at the far post. A high-sticking penalty to Leblanc at the conclusion of the first period gave the Stars 1:43 to work with a two-man advantage to open the second. They made the most of it almost instantly, scoring to cut their deficit in half just 13 seconds into the period. Mueller took control of the puck below the goal line and centred it cross-ice to Morin, who chipped a one-time shot over the near shoulder of Tokarski. St. Pierre singled out his teams lack of discipline as a fatal flaw, especially because Texas entered play with an AHL-leading power-play thats connected on 27.6 per cent of its opportunities. "I think we shot ourselves in the foot taking a penalty in the last minute of the first period," said St. Pierre. "We knew that (Texas) had a good power play. We have a good penalty kill as well, but we gave them a couple of chances and with the skill that they have, they scored." Mueller was the creator once again when Texas levelled the game on another power play at 8:21 of the second period. With McKenzie streaking in along the opposite wing, Mueller threaded a cross-ice pass to him that McKenzie quickly slid back across Tokarskis crease and inside his far post. Nilstorp had to be sharp to maintain the tied score with four minutes to play in the second, when the Bulldogs pieced together a dangerous rush of their own on the power play. Gabriel Dumont received a cross-ice pass in space, and released a rising one-time shot that Nilstorp slid across his crease to kick aside. Controversy struck in the final minute of the game, as a group of Bulldogs attacked a loose puck in Nilstrops crease and believed that the puck had crossed the goal line. The play was quickly waved off, however, with the official indicating that he had intended to stop play. Texas secured the extra point in overtime when Scott Glennie won the puck behind the Hamilton net and centred to a wide-open Mueller, who fired a quick slap shot high and past Tokarski at the near post at 1:33 of the overtime period. Tokarski, who was frustrated with what he thought to be inconsistency from the referees, believed that he had earned a stoppage of play before the final goal was scored. "If youre going to be bad for the game, be bad on both sides," he said. "(The official) waved a goal off for us with a quick whistle, and then when there should have been a whistle at (our) end, he didnt blow it. "Who knows who would have won, but I would have liked to have seen a better end to the game than the refs deciding it." Texas was 2-5 on the power play while Hamilton went 0-5. Steve McNair Titans Jersey . -- Montee Ball acknowledges he was "a little bit" intimidated by Peyton Manning last year, something he says contributed to his slow start. Earl Campbell Titans Jersey .

The Argentine manager said he had reached "an agreement to cease being the coach" after Barcelona was held to 1-1 by new champion Atletico Madrid on Saturday. Martino was hired last summer and tasked with continuing Barcelonas winning era started by predecessor Pep Guardiola in 2008, but Barcelona finished the season without a major trophy for the first time since the 2007-08 season. Former Barcelona player Luis Enrique is expected to replace Martino, who left with one year left on his contract. "I am deeply sorry that I couldnt help my players reach the clubs goals that it has been reaching year after year," said Martino, who refused to take questions from the press after the match. "I am sure (my players) will have more successes (in the future). I dont have anything else to say except to thank them. We admired these players from afar, we admired them from up close, and I am sure I will continue admiring them because they will get back to winning again." Martiino alluded for weeks to a possible exit, saying his future had already been decided regardless of how the league ended after Barcelonas exit from the Champions League to Atletico, and loss in the Copa del Rey final to Real Madrid. DeMarco Murray Titans Jersey. On Saturday, he said the decision was taken "independently of the game" that limited him to a Spanish Supercup as his only trophy in one season in charge of the Catalan club. "We thank Tata because he took over during a difficult season," Barcelona sports director Andoni Zubizarreta said. "Even so, we made the final of the Copa del Rey and were within five minutes of winning the league title." Speculation has grown that Enrique will be named to take Martinos place after he stepped down as Celta Vigo coach following a meeting with Barcelona last week. Barcelona needed to win the match at Camp Nou to win the league, but Diego Simeones Atletico emerged undefeated from its sixth meeting with Barcelona this season. Martinos goodbye came after goalkeeper Victor Valdes and captain Carles Puyol said their farewells this week. Other players will likely join them with the club set to overhaul its squad. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Cheap JerseysCheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys China Wholesale Jerseys ' ' '
