The Grizzlies recalled guard Jam

DENVER -- Patrick Roy showed as much boldness behind the bench as he once did as a Hall of Fame goaltender. Christian Kirk Jersey . The first-year Colorado coach made some risky moves late in the game -- like pulling his goaltender with 3:01 remaining -- and yet the ploy worked out. Its been that kind of season for Roy and his youthful squad. Paul Stastny scored 7:27 into overtime after tying the game with 13.4 seconds remaining in regulation, lifting the Avalanche to a 5-4 win over the Minnesota Wild in the opener of the Western Conference quarterfinals on Thursday night. "We believe in ourselves," said Roy, who won two Stanley Cup titles for the Avalanche as a player and helped guide the team back to the playoffs for the first time in four years. "Sometimes, youre not playing your best game, but the quality of our team is we found a way to win this game. Thats what you want in the playoffs." Gabriel Landeskog, Ryan OReilly and Jamie McGinn also added goals for Colorado. Stastny beat Ilya Bryzgalov with a close-in wrist shot in overtime, the same type of play Stastny used to tie the game in regulation. Not that the Avalanche were too surprised by the late rally because, "weve done it all year," Stastny said. Its becoming their calling card. "Once again, it shows character in this dressing room," Landeskog said. "Theres no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home ice advantage and we werent going to let this one slide." This was a stunner for the Wild. "Its really disappointing. Were in the drivers seat," said Zach Parise, who had two assists. "Were in a really good position going into the third and really throughout the third we were in a good position. We made some mistakes and it was in our net and thats the game." Erik Haula, Charlie Coyle, Ryan Suter and Kyle Brodziak scored for the Wild, who try to bounce back Saturday in Game 2. "You have to learn from it," Suter said. "Learn that the games not over until its over and you have the finish the games." Roy made a bold move with just over three minutes remaining, pulling Semyon Varlamov for an extra skater. Erik Johnson saved a potential empty-net goal with over a minute left as he raced down the ice and slapped away the puck just before it crossed the goal line. Moments later, Stastny beat Bryzgalov with a shot over his shoulder -- the capacity crowd erupted. The Wild took a 4-2 lead after a three-goal second period. They spent the final period trying to play a prevent defence, not allowing the Avalanche to take advantage of their quickness. OReilly stole the puck from Brodziak and slid it over to McGinn, who batted it past Bryzgalov to make it a one-goal game at 12:47. Roy hardly played things by the book as the team tied a franchise record with 52 wins in the regular season. That gamblers mentality certainly didnt change in the post-season. Roy said before the game that it was his job to "have a B plan and a C plan in our pocket" in case of an emergency. In this case, it was pulling Varlamov with plenty of time remaining. "Almost did it at four minutes," Roy said, smiling. Roys strategy almost backfired when the Wild sent a puck rolling toward the goal. Johnson chased it down and knocked the puck away before it crossed the line. He also bumped the goal off its moorings. Matt Cooke took a shot on the goal with Johnson lying in front of the net, which upset a few Avalanche players and led to some pushing and shoving. A big play overshadowed a bit by Stastnys theatrics. "What a comeback," Johnson said. "Thats the kind of stuff you dream about when youre a kid, winning playoff games like that." Although the underdog in the series, the Wild were actually one of the hottest teams down the stretch as they fought just to get into the playoffs. Bryzgalov provided a spark after he was acquired from Edmonton in early March. He went 7-1-3 down the stretch. But Bryzgalov has been inconsistent in the post-season over his career. Hes 17-20 and has allowed 109 goals. "Ive got no problem with his game," Wild coach Mike Yeo said of Bryzgalov. "Were all sitting here disappointed we didnt win the hockey game." NOTES: Earlier in the day, Wild players wore shirts that featured a picture of the Stanley Cup on the back with the slogan, "Take it baby!" above the coveted trophy. ... Avs rookie Nathan MacKinnon finished with three assists. Chase Edmonds Cardinals Jersey . Chris Heisey followed with a two-run triple and Billy Hamilton added an RBI double, all but sealing Cincinnatis fourth straight victory and seventh in eight games. Brandon Phillips, celebrating his 33rd birthday, hit a go-ahead homer in the ninth for the Reds before pinch-hitter Buster Posey tied it with an RBI double off hard-throwing closer Aroldis Chapman in the bottom half. Brice Butler Jersey . JOHNS, N. MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The San Antonio Spurs had reason to be disappointed. They had lost a 16-point lead in the games final five minutes and were being forced to play overtime Tuesday night against the Memphis Grizzlies. Instead of losing their composure, the Spurs displayed poise as they battled through the five-minute overtime period and beat the Grizzlies, 110-108, winning on a driving layup by Manu Ginobili with 1.8 seconds left. Memphis point guard Mike Conley had an opportunity to win the game, but his 29-foot 3-point attempt fell short at the buzzer. "I told the guys at the (beginning of) overtime that it was all a mental contest," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "It would be easy to go down after losing the lead and playing as sloppily as we did at the end of the game. It would be easy to hang your head. So I thought that was the most important thing: letting go and moving forward mentally." Tim Duncan led the Spurs with 24 points -- including six in overtime -- while Marco Belinelli added 19 and Kawhi Leonard 17. Conley had 30 points, one off his career high, for the Grizzlies, scoring 21 in the second half. "(The Grizzlies) had some great plays down the stretch there," Duncan said. "We thought there was a couple of fouls missed (but) they played horn to horn and we didnt. We slacked off there for a minute, but luckily not enough to be able to regroup in overtime and find a way to win." Memphis trailed by 16 with five minutes left in regulation, and used a 23-7 run to rally and force overtime. Conley hit a runner at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime 3 seconds after Ginobili had scored on a layup. "I was proud of the effort at the end," said Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger. "We kept coming. We started to attack them the way we needed to attack them, which was in transition and with quick attacks. I thought we played pretty hard. We were just too slow in the first half." With the Grizzlies trailing by 10, Conley said he decided to play more aggressively entering the fourth quarter to relieve the pressure on teammate Zach Randolph, whom the Spurs were double-teaming in the low post. Conley scored 12 points iin the quarter, including 9 in the final 1:35 when the Grizzlies rallied from a 96-85. Benson Mayowa Jersey. deficit. He added five more points in overtime. "On the last play of the game I would have liked to have gotten it closer to the (3-point) line," Conley said. "But I had a good look." The Spurs won their fourth straight road game and their seventh straight against the Grizzlies. San Antonio was playing its first game without centre Tiago Splitter, who sprained his right shoulder in Saturdays win over the Clippers and is out for three to five weeks. Memphis never led in the game until Conley connected on a 3-pointer with 2:25 to go in overtime for a 103-102 advantage. The Grizzlies also led 106-104 after newly acquired guard Courtney Lee hit a jumper with 1:27 to go, but Boris Diaw scored on a layup 25 seconds later and Duncan hit two free throws with 22.6 seconds left for a 108-106 lead. The Grizzlies dropped to 0-9 against Southwest Division opponents. The Spurs shot 57 per cent in the first half and built a 53-41 lead. San Antonio was 23-of-40 shooting and Belinelli had 14 points. Duncan was 5 of 7 and scored 11 points. The Spurs led by as many as 14 in the opening half. Leading 25-22 at the end of the first quarter, the Spurs extended their advantage to 14 at 47-33 late in the second quarter and maintained a double-digit lead until the second half. In the third quarter, the Grizzlies trimmed San Antonios lead to 62-57 on a jumper by Conley, but the Spurs led by 10 entering the final quarter. NOTES: Grizzlies guard Tony Allen missed his second straight game with a left hand contusion. ... The Grizzlies recalled guard Jamaal Franklin from the NBA Development Leagues Fort Wayne Mad Ants Tuesday. Franklin, the franchises second-round draft pick a year ago, played one game for Fort Wayne and scored 15 points with four steals in 23 minutes. ... Lee, acquired from the Celtics as part of a three-team deal, made his debut and connected on his first shot, a 3-pointer in the second quarter. . . . San Antonio improved to a league-best 14-3 on the road this season. . . .
