BUFFALO a€“ It was more than a dozen years ago, but Henrik Tallinder a€“ now pushing toward the creakier age of 36 a€“ remembers just about every detail. Salomon Shoes Outlet Store . He remembers the score (3-1). He remembers the opponent (Washington). He remembers the matchup with one of the gamea€?s greatest players (Jagr). He remembers how very anxious he was that day in mid-April when he made his NHL debut in this very building a€“ then named HSBC Arena. a€?Youa€?re a rookie,a€? he said of the experience, a€?youa€?re nervous, and you dona€?t really know what to expect.a€? Tallinder is again auditioning for a spot in the NHL, only this time with 678 career games under his belt a€“ his chances damaged in his preseason return to Buffalo on Friday night. Hea€?s too old to change now, he says. His game is what it is. His experience, which includes an Olympic silver medal, speaks for itself. He is jostling for a job in Toronto with the same type of young, hopeful defender he once was. That bid, which appeared strong at the outset of training camp, is suddenly in major doubt. Tallinder was driven into the end boards by former teammate Mike Weber midway through the middle frame of Fridaya€?s game. His left shoulder took the brunt of the impact and afterward it was diagnosed as dislocated. His NHL career is suddenly in jeopardy in the same place that it all began. Back in the fall of 2002 when that career was just beginning, he was an untried, unheralded 22-year-old Sabres second-round pick simply trying to make his start in the league. Grinding away in Rochester during his first dance through North America, Tallinder, a Stockholm native, was given two NHL games at the conclusion of the 2001-02 campaign. He spent the summer that followed back in Sweden and it was the offseason of his life in many ways. He knew he had to get bigger and stronger to play in the league and spent the warmer months of that year endeavouring to do so. a€?I dona€?t think Ia€?ve ever worked so hard my whole life that summer to be able to get a spot in Buffalo,a€? he said, recalling 10 painstaking workouts each week. a€?It was such a big difference between the American Hockey League and NHL.a€? He was a different defenceman then; quicker, spryer, more energetic, but less nuanced in the game the way he would become over 11 seasons. He had more jump in his body then, a certain and ever-present excitement to join the rush wherever and whenever possible. All that evolved with age and games logged, most of them here in Buffalo with the Sabres. a€?Ia€?m not maybe as fast as I used to be,a€? Tallinder said, a€?but you compensate with experience.a€? a€?You learn where to be on the ice,a€? he continued. a€?Thata€?s something you dona€?t get to start with. Thata€?s experience. Thata€?s learning.a€? And that will be the choice in some ways for the Leafs in the coming days, (a choice that gets a lot easier if his injury is as serious as it appears) whether to lean with an experienced defender like Tallinder, who might not have much left, or opt for untested youth, the kind in Korbinian Holzer, Stuart Percy and Petter Granberg, that Tallinder once was 12 years earlier. Having a veteran depth defender around a€“ Stephane Robidasa€?s status for the start of the regular season notwithstanding a€“ may be attractive for a team fortunate enough to skate through last season without any serious injuries to its defence. a€?Ia€?m just going out with my business, trying to do what I can do, trying to get better and trying to prove that I can play on this team,a€? says Tallinder, who played more than 500 games as a Sabre. a€?Ia€?m too old now to change anything that Ia€?m doing. Ia€?m going to play my kind of game that Ia€?ve been successful with. Nothing has really changed for me.a€? That game, according to Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle, includes a€?lots of moxiea€? and a cool kind of poise that comes with experience. a€?There is a possibility that he could make our hockey club and play against some top lines,a€? Carlyle observed early in camp. a€?He was a steady defenceman and a really good teammate,a€? former Devils teammate, David Clarkson, says of Tallinder. a€?He brings that stuff, but he also poises you at the back-end. Hea€?s not a guy to make very many mistakes. Hea€?ll get the puck and move it quick. a€?I think therea€?s a lot of things he can do for this team and this organization.a€? Carlyle couldna€?t say how long Tallinder might be sidelined (he missed about a month with a right shoulder injury in 2009), but in any case, whatever hopes he had are now dangling precariously with Holzer, Granberg and Percy pushing for the same job. It would be an unfortunate end for a player who still believes in his ability to play in the NHL. a€?I know I can still play in this league,a€? he said before the game, a€?so ita€?s not that.a€? Salomon Wholesale China . MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez also will attend the session, which was announced Monday. The league has discussed placing its next two expansion teams in Miami and Atlanta. Buy Salomon Shoes . Marek Hamsik, who had earlier missed a penalty, headed Napoli in front in the 23rd minute and Pandev added a second goal five minutes from halftime.

Hahn held St. Louis to one run and four hits in seven innings and Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable each homered and drove in four runs to lead the San Diego Padres to a 12-1 victory Wednesday night. Yangervis Solarte, obtained from the New York Yankees in the trade for Chase Headley, had four hits and the Padres tied their season high with 16. The Padres fell one run shy of their season high. "To get a win on your birthday is awesome," Hahn said. His seven wins in nine appearances are the most in Padres history and tied for the third-most by a big league pitcher since 1914. "We havent had it enough," manager Bud Black said of the scoring outburst. "But its great to see. It starts with starting pitching, and Jesse pitched a great game. Hes not a secret, even though hes facing teams for the first time. Theres video, theres scouting reports. Hes being talked about because hes made a number of starts and his innings are getting up there a little bit." Hahns latest impressive start put the Padres, buried in third place in the NL West, in position to sweep the series with a win Thursday. The Cardinals are in the race for the NL Central crown a season after going to the World Series. "It was probably our ugliest loss of the year. Thats the best way to describe it," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. Hahn (7-2) struck out three and walked two in winning his third straight start. The lanky righty retired the first seven batters before Tony Cruz beat out an infield single. Hahn was acquired in a seven-player trade with Tampa Bay on Jan. 22. Hahn took a shutout into the seventh before allowing a one-out RBI single by Peter Bourjos singled in Matt Adams. "I was a little mad but at that point I was going for the double play to get out of the inning," Hahn said. "It was a good pitch; unfortunately the runner scored. Venable hit a 379-foot, three-run homer to right to cap the eight-run seventh. It was his fourth. The Padres had five hits, three walks and a hit batter off three relievers in the inning. Gyorko hit a three-run double, his third hit. Gyorko, who returned Monday from a 44-game stay on the disabled list with plantar fasciitis, homered to left on a 1-0 pitch from Joe Kelly with one out in the fourth to give San Diego a 3-0 lead. Cheap Salomon Shoes. It was his sixth. Yonder Alonso followed with a triple and came in on Venables single. "It obviously feels good to swing the bat the way I wanted to," said Gyorko, who has struggled since the Padres gave him a $35 million, six-year contract extension on April 14, based on his strong rookie season. "It feels a lot like how I was swinging it there at the end of the year last year. Its something to build on but I still have a long way to go." Alexi Amarista had three hits and scored three runs, and Solarte also had three hits. Kelly (2-2) went five innings, allowing four runs and seven hits while striking out five and walking one. "Kelly was OK," Matheny said. "It looked like good pitches were getting hit hard. It should have worked out a little better for him." Overall, "Thats not the kind of baseball weve played all year," Matheny said. No excuses. We were terrible." TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: Manager Mike Matheny said the sound of pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso getting hit on the knee by a pitch from Joaquin Benoit in the ninth inning Tuesday night was "as loud as a hit batsman as Ive heard. It sounded terrible. But I was happy to see him get up, walk around." Descalso was replaced by a pinch-runner. Padres: RHP Andrew Cashner threw another bullpen Wednesday and is scheduled to throw a simulated game during the weekend. He could begin a rehab assignment next week. Hes on the disabled list with soreness in his right shoulder. ON DECK Cardinals: Shelby Miller (7-8, 4.20) is 0-1 with a 5.19 ERA in one career start and two appearances against San Diego, both at Petco Park Padres: Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2, 1.66) tries to bounce back from rocky start in 5-3 loss to Atlanta, when he lasted only 3 2-3 innings.
