    BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Coming off what Guy Boucher called their worst game of the year, the Ottawa Senators impressed their coach with a comeback effort Wednesday night.Bobby Ryan and Kyle Turris scored during a shootout, helping the Senators beat the Buffalo Sabres 2-1.Backup goaltender Mike Condon made 31 saves, including eight in overtime, as the Senators rebounded from a 3-1 loss in Nashville on Tuesday and avenged a 2-1 loss to the Sabres at home Saturday.Thats a lot of resiliency, Boucher said. Im really proud of the guys because thats a tough back-to-back.Turris scored in the first round of the shootout to match Sam Reinharts tally, and then Ryan put Ottawa ahead in the second round. Condon stopped Brian Gionta on Buffalos final attempt.Ryan Dzingel got a tying goal for Ottawa 7:15 into the second period.Nicholas Baptiste scored for Buffalo, and former Senator Robin Lehner made 28 saves while the Sabres lost their second in a row.Buffalo controlled the action throughout overtime, outshooting Ottawa 8-0.We just possessed the puck the whole time for the most part and had some glorious chances to win the game, Sabres coach Dan Bylsma said.Zemgus Girgensons got a point-blank shot past Condon with 27 seconds remaining, but the puck ricocheted off the back of Condons skate and the left post.Its funny how puck luck works, Sabres defenseman Jake McCabe said. Hopefully one of these days, the pucks going to bounce our way. But we just got to keep doing the right things, create our own luck.Condon has won both of his starts for the Senators since being acquired in a trade with Pittsburgh on Nov. 2. He made 27 saves in a 1-0 shutout of Vancouver in his debut.Its great for a guy to come in and make his presence known like that, Dzingel said. Hats off to him. Two great games.Baptiste gave Buffalo a 1-0 lead 2:49 into the first. Derek Grants faceoff win and a quick pass from Cole Schneider set up Baptistes wrist shot from the left circle. It was Baptistes second career goal and Schneiders first point.The Senators tied it when Dzingel split defensemen Dmitry Kulikov and Rasmus Ristolainen and lifted a shot from the left slot over Lehners blocking pad. Dzingel has scored four of his five goals on the road this season.Buffalo killed three penalties spanning 4:36 in the second period, including a 5-on-3 that lasted 1:24.Forward Evander Kane returned to the Sabres top line after missing 11 games with cracked ribs, but Buffalo was still without its top two centers, Ryan OReilly and Jack Eichel. OReilly is day-to-day with an upper body injury, Bylsma said. Eichel has yet to play this season due to a high ankle sprain, but Bylsma said he could be cleared for on-ice workouts next week.Game notesSenators F Chris Neil missed the game with an undisclosed injury.

Cameron Jordan Jersey .4 million title. Ryan Riess emerged with the title after a session in which he started behind, but used expert skill to gather the chips to his side amid the unpredictability of no-limit Texas Hold em. Riess put his final opponent Jay Farber all-in with an Ace-King. Erik McCoy Youth Jersey . Cuban testified Thursday that he was upset when the companys CEO told him news that would reduce the value of his shares, for which hed paid $7.5 million. But he said he did nothing improper when he sold those shares over the next two days. The ECB has announced final squads for the inaugural North v South series next March, with Mark Wood, Steven Finn and James Vince among those given opportunities to press their claims for England selection in the three 50-over matches.Wood is currently working back to fitness after a third ankle operation in the space of 12 months, having briefly impressed in an England shirt during the ODI series with Pakistan at the end of the summer. His ability to operate at 90mph could make him a key weapon when England challenge for the Champions Trophy next June.Paul Farbrace, Englands assistant coach, said they were hopeful Wood could also be fit for the ODI tour to West Indies in February.There is a chance he may make the West Indies squad, Farbrace said. But for someone like Finny, who has missed out on his place in one-day cricket in recent series, its a great opportunity for him to show what he can do and get himself into the one-day side. Theres others - [Dawid] Malan, [Sam] Northeast, people who have been very successful in county cricket who perhaps havent had the opportunity, this is a great chance for them.Vince played all three ODIs on the recent tour of Bangladesh but was dropped from the squad to tour India next month, while Finns last limited-overs appearance came in 2015. Vince will captain the South XI and Keaton Jennings will lead the North. Four members of each squad have already been selected via the Professional Cricketers Associations MVP ranking system.Jennings and Ben Duckett, who both made senior England debuts this winter, are joined by Liam Dawson, Tim Bresnan and Harry Gurney as the other capped players involved. Two young legspinners, in Mason Crane and Josh Poysden, have also been included in the 13-man squads.For all the players selected, the North versus South series is a platform to make an impression, Englands national selector, James Whitaker, said. As Andrew Strauss said when he introduced the series before the start of the 2016 season, we see it as an important addition to our selection process in 50-over cricket, ahead of the two major global events we are staging over the next three summers - the Champions Trophy next year and the World Cup in 2019.With the calibre of the squads we have selected, we are confident there will be an intense and high-quality level of competition that allows us to assess players who are currently just outside the England squad, and their ability to perform at that highher level.ddddddddddddFarbrace will coach the South side while Englands bowling coach, Ottis Gibson, will take charge of the North. Both were involved in selection, while Trevor Bayliss, Englands head coach, will attend the matches.The key thing is to give people outside of the current one-day set-up the opportunity to place for England, Farbrace said. With an eye on the 2019 World Cup in England, were trying to make sure that white-ball cricket has the same importance as red-ball cricket. Its a brilliant opportunity for players in county cricket who otherwise wouldnt have been selected.What were saying is, the Lions is one route and county cricket is certainly another route. When people come through the Lions, you know theyve come through a grounding between county cricket and international cricket, but also there are people capable of coming directly from county cricket. There are some very good county players... So you want the routes to be varied, not just one line into the England team.Eight members of the Lions squad announced earlier this week for the one-day series against Sri Lanka A in March have been included - Jennings, Joe Clarke, Liam Livingstone, Poysden, Tom Alsop, Daniel Bell-Drummond, Ben Foakes and Tom Curran - while a number of promising players outside the performance programmes, such as Sam Hain, Jack Leaning and Richard Gleeson have also earned call-ups.The squads will gather in Dubai ahead of warm-up matches on March 15. The three-match North v South series will then take place in Dubai, on March 17 and 19, and Abu Dhabi, on March 21.North squad: Keaton Jennings (Durham, capt), Ben Duckett (Northamptonshire*), Sam Hain (Warwickshire), Joe Clarke (Worcestershire), Liam Livingstone (Lancashire), Jack Leaning (Yorkshire), Tim Bresnan (Yorkshire*), Josh Poysden (Warwickshire), Graeme White (Northamptonshire*), Mark Wood (Durham), Saqib Mahmood (Lancashire), Richard Gleeson (Northamptonshire), Harry Gurney (Nottinghamshire*)South squad: James Vince (Hampshire, capt), Daniel Bell-Drummond (Kent), Tom Alsop (Hampshire), Dawid Malan (Middlesex), Sam Northeast (Kent), Liam Dawson (Hampshire*), Ben Foakes (Surrey), Tom Curran (Surrey), Lewis Gregory (Somerset*), Tim Groenewald (Somerset*), Matt Coles (Kent*), Steven Finn (Middlesex), Mason Crane (Hampshire)*PCA MVP rankings selection ' ' '
