TOKYO -- Local favourite Daisuke Takahashi produced a solid free skate on Saturday to win his fifth NHK Trophy. Takahashi, who had a 10-point lead after the short program, received 268.31 points after the free skate to finish 15 points ahead of second-place Nobunari Oda. Three-time U.S. champion Jeremy Abbott, who was seventh after the short program, had a strong free skate and finished third with 237.41 points. Takahashi, who was a disappointing fourth at Skate America, hit his opening quad toeloop. He had a shaky landing on a triple axel and was downgraded on a combination jump but was solid otherwise. "I didnt do well at Skate America so I was determined to get my confidence back," Takahashi said. "I wasnt perfect today but little by little was able to gain momentum." Two-time world champion Mao Asada completed a successful day for the host nation by winning the free skate to capture her fourth NHK Trophy. Asada, who was first after the short program, under-rotated her opening triple axel but finished with a total of 207.59 points. Coupled with her win at Skate America, Asada secured a berth at the Grand Prix final next month in the Fukuoka, Japan. "I was a bit disappointed not to do the triple axel cleanly," Asada said. "Its something I want to be able to do well but Im happy with the overall result." Russian Elena Radionova was second with 191.81 points while Japans Akiko Suzuki finished third with 179.32. Gracie Gold of the United States was third in the free skate but finished fourth overall with 177.81 points. Russias Tatiana Volosozhar and Maxim Trankov won the pairs by an overwhelming margin of more than 50 points. The defending world champions totalled 236.49 in their victory, while second-place Peng Cheng and Zhang Hao of China received just 182.18. Volosozhar and Trankov extended their impressive streak of victories with the triumph and qualified for the GP final. Two-time world champions Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the United States lead the ice dance after the short dance. Davis and White (73.70) are more than nine points ahead of Italys Anna Cappellini and Luca Lanotte (64.58) heading into Sundays free dance.

Ishmael Jersey .C. -- Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera says defensive co-ordinator Sean McDermott will interview for the Washington Redskins head coaching position this week. ABBOTSFORD, B.C. -- Seven wins in a row, and the Abbotsford Heat are still looking for ways to improve. The Heat defeated the Toronto Marlies 6-3 Sunday night in American Hockey League action, which ties a franchise record for consecutive victories. The streak has included overtime, shootouts, comebacks, and on Sunday, a blown lead in the third period. "We look back at each game and know where we havent done so well in certain areas, and known that weve been lucky to win some in this streak as well," said Brett Olson, who scored the winning goal. "Were happy with where were at. But weve just got to keep it all in perspective and learn from each game, and maintain that confidence that when we get in tight situations like this, that we can win." After the Marlies rallied from a two-goal deficit to tie the game 3-3 in the third Olson converted a pass from Knight off a Tyler Wotherspoon rush while playing four-on-four at 12:21 of the third period. "Spooner made an unbelievable rush," said Olson of the rookie defenceman Wotherspoon. "He bought time and basically sucked the guy in and was able to kick it out to Knight. Knight fed it through a nice little hole, and I didnt have to do much, to be honest with you. It was right on my tape, and I just had to put it in the open net." It was just the second goal of the year for Olson but a coachs hunch matched him with the Heats leading scorer on that shift. "The big things is, they can get up and down the rink together and they both can share the puck pretty well," said Abbotsford head coach Troy Ward. "Theyve had some chemistry so it was kind of a gut feeling." Knight added a goal and Michael Ferland also had a goal and an assist for the Heat (11-4-1), while Chad Billins, Ben Street and Markus Granlund scored the others. "That was like a playoff-atmosphere game, for the most part," said Olson. "There were a lot of hits, there was a lot of hard work to the net, a lot of puck battles on the walls, just great plays overall." Joey MacDonald made 24 saves for Abbotsford and his most important may have been with four minutes to go when he came across to glove a T.J. Brennan slap shot, a quality save even the Toronto defenceman had to acknowledge with a stick tap.dddddddddddd Josh Leivo, Trevor Smith and Jerry DAmigo scored for the Marlies (6-5-1) while Spencer Abbott chipped in with two assists to extend his point streak to 11 games. Garret Sparks stopped 24 shots for Toronto. Leivo opened the scoring for the Marlies at 8:09 when he took a pass at full speed from Abbott and made a move around a defenceman to beat MacDonald through the five-hole. The Heat tied the game at 17:46 when Greg Nemisz blazed down the right wing and threw a puck to the net. Sparks couldnt corral it and, with Nemisz in the crease, Billins raced in to wrist it past the Marlies netminder for his team-leading sixth goal of the season. The Heat took the lead at 5:02 when Street converted a two-on-one rush with Ferland and Knight made it 3-1 two minutes and 31 seconds later. Ben Hanowski fed the puck to Knight in the high slot as Olson went to the net to provide traffic and Knight placed a hard wrist shot from the top of the circle past Sparks. Toronto cut into the deficit while on a five-on-three power play. Abbott found Smith open at the side of the net and the Marlies captain one-timed it past MacDonald at 11:49. The Marlies tied the game at 6:10 of the third period when DAmigo put one past MacDonald. After blocking a shot at his own blue line, Sam Carrick rushed down the ice and tried to centre for David Broll. The puck found its way to DAmigo at the side of the net with MacDonald sprawled. "They pushed pretty hard and we took a lot of penalties in a row," said Ward. "They scored a nice five-on-three goal. We seemed to be a little bit on edge. Theyre a good hockey team. We would expect that from them. Its 3-1 and with a couple of mistakes its 3-3." Despite giving up a two-goal cushion, the team didnt get flustered, going on to score three more times, including a penalty shot by Granlund and an empty netter by Ferland. The Heat now head on their longest road trip of the season. "Its going to be a long one," said Billins. "But you know, its fun too. Its a good time to really build up the team bonding. Its going to be a battle, but youve just got to take it one game at a time. Weve got to pull off some wins here." cheap jerseys cheap jerseys china cheap jerseys wholesale jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
