    导出博客文章NEW YORK -- Ruth Riley was momentarily confused whether San Antonio actually won
    the WNBA draft lottery or not when the four picks were revealed at the same
    time.It took a second, but when the Stars general manager realized she had the
    top choice, she let out a scream of joy.I thought historically they went
    4-3-2-1, Riley said in a phone interview. Then I heard him say the No. 1 pick,
    then our name. Im really incredibly excited for our team, organization and our
    fans. Im looking forward to the addition of a great player.The Stars, who have
    the top choice for the first time, had a 44 percent chance to secure the No. 1
    selection based on having the worst combined record the past two seasons.A lot
    of fans supported us knowing that it wasnt about we were doing this season, but
    more the direction we were going, Riley said.The Washington Mystics will pick
    second. They had a 10-percent chance of securing the top pick.The second pick is
    really exciting for us, Washington coach Mike Thibault said. Where we are with
    our franchise, to get another good college player will help us a lot. Its a
    really exciting moment for our franchise.The Dallas Wings secured the third pick
    and the Los Angeles Sparks fourth. The Sparks acquired Connecticuts lottery pick
    through a draft-day trade last April that sent Jonquel Jones to the
    Sun.Connecticut and Dallas each had a 23 percent chance of getting the No. 1
    pick.You never know how the balls are going to bounce, Dallas coach Fred
    Williams said. Were getting a nice pick there at the three position.Unlike the
    previous few seasons, there is no clear-cut No. 1 pick coming out of college
    this year.Clearly going to do some research, Riley said. Evaluating our roster
    and needs. Its a normal process. Theres a lot of discussion around the top draft
    picks and different opinions who they should be. My job as GM is to evaluate the
    talent.Riley also has to find a new coach as Dan Hughes retired at the end of
    the season. She said that finding a new one is a high priority for the
    franchise.The rest of the first round in order will be Phoenix, Seattle,
    Atlanta, Indiana, Dallas (from New York), Dallas (from Los Angeles) and
    Minnesota.There are a lot of things available for us since we have three picks
    in the first round, Williams said.---Follow Doug on Twitter at

    . Lack made 20 saves for his third shutout of the season as the
    Canucks blanked the St. Louis Blues 1-0 in the first post-Olympic game for both
    teams night. NEW YORK -- Dan Girardi returned to the lineup and made himself the
    difference with one big third-period shot.Girardi scored 1:55 into the final
    period, lifting the New York Rangers over the Arizona Coyotes 3-2 on Sunday
    night.The goal was the first of the season for Girardi. He put the Rangers up
    for good with a slap shot from the right point.I just buried my head and tried
    to shoot as hard as I can at the net, Girardi said. Good things happen when you
    put pucks on net.The veteran was paired with rookie Brady Skjei in his first
    game after missing New Yorks previous three with a strained groin, and Skjei
    assisted on the goal.New York was playing for the second straight night after
    winning 4-2 at Washington on Saturday.The leadership group was trying to preach
    to the young guys that we (had) a huge win in Washington (but) it means nothing
    if you cant back it up with a win tonight, Girardi said. We stuck with it and
    found a way to get two points.Josh Jooris and J.T. Miller also scored for the
    Rangers, who have 12 players with at least one goal this season and 20 players
    with at least one point.Henrik Lundqvist made 27 stops for New York.Radim Vrbata
    had both of Arizonas goals, and Louis Domingue made 23 saves. The Coyotes have
    lost their first four games on a six-game trip since beating Philadelphia in
    overtime at home to start the season.We are learning it is not easy to win in
    this league, Vrbata said. Every mistake we make seems to wind up in our
    net.Vrbata opened the scoring 33 seconds in by deflecting Connor Murphys shot
    from the right point past Lundqvist.For the most part there were some real good
    parts to our game, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett said. But good parts to your game
    doesnt get you a win. We need to find ways to win.ddddddddddddJooris got his
    first goal with the Rangers with 7:47 left in the first. He jammed a puck under
    Domingue while being knocked to the ice by Lawson Crouse.New York took its first
    lead 5:45 into the second when Miller scored his second of the season. With the
    Rangers on a power play, Miller cut to the net and deflected Ryan McDonaghs slap
    shot past Domingue for a 2-1 advantage.These points still count at the end of
    the day, Miller said. We did a good job of hanging on and just finding a way to
    get two (points).Vrbata made it 2-2 with 3:42 left in the second.Its nice to see
    pucks go in, thats for sure, Vrbata said. Ill take anything.Game notes Prior to
    the game, Rangers coach Alain Vigneault announced Girardi would replace D Adam
    Clendening in the lineup. Vigneault also said LW Chris Kreider reported to the
    team with neck spasms and would miss the game. Oscar Lindberg dressed in place
    of Kreider, and skated on the fourth line with Jooris and Brandon Pirri.
