    MILAN, Italy -- Mario Balotellis stunning late winner secured a 1-0 victory for AC Milan against relegation-threatened Bologna in Serie A on Friday. [b]Fran Tarkenton Womens Jersey[/b] . Balotelli fired into the top far corner from 35 metres in the 86th minute. The result will be a welcome boost before the first leg of Milans Champions League last-16 tie against Spanish league leader Atletico Madrid on Wednesday. "I think that was the goal of the season," Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani said. "It was very difficult to score and it was an incredibly powerful, explosive effort. When you have great champions they can win the match for you with one shot. Im going to watch it over and over again tonight. "Bologna was difficult to beat and we won it with a great bit of play from a great champion like Mario. Balotelli has to gain continuity but he has everything to become a great champion." Milan had the majority of the possession and should have taken an early lead but Bologna goalkeeper parried Riccardo Montolivos effort. Kaka was back from a bout of flu which kept him out of last weeks 3-1 defeat at Napoli, and the Brazilian lined up alongside January signings Keisuke Honda and Adel Taarabt, just behind Balotelli. Bologna had the best chance of the first half though, and Milan goalkeeper Christian Abbiati did well to fingertip Rene Krhins header over the crossbar in the 22nd minute. "I dont like this Milan side," Bologna coach Davide Ballardini said. "Once upon a time it was a squad made up of champions who would help the team and now it doesnt seem to me to be like this anymore. "I would like to coach a player like Balotelli. He has the makings of the champion, but to become a real champion he needs other things as well." [b]Brett Favre Womens Jersey[/b] . Phoenix got injured centre Emeka Okafor and a top-12-protected first-round draft pick in 2014 -- giving the rebuilding Suns potentially four choices in the opening round. The Suns also sent guards Kendall Marshall, Shannon Brown and Malcolm Lee to Washington so the deal will work financially. [b]Dalvin Cook Youth Jersey[/b] . Ive said it before, Ive worked with top pros and I could have made my own program.TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Lightning have put themselves in position for home-ice in their opening playoff round against Montreal. Richard Panik, Eric Brewer and Steven Stamkos had third-period goals to help the Lightning beat the Philadelphia Flyers 4-2 on Thursday night. Tyler Johnson had the other goal for Tampa Bay, which moved within a point of Montreal for second place in the Atlantic Division. If the Lightning win their last two games, they will clinch the Atlantics runner-up spot. "To have the ability to win out and get home ice, thats what you want," Stamkos said. "You want to play meaningful games down the stretch. Obviously, we were proud to get into the playoffs, but it would be icing on the cake to get home ice. Its in our hands." Wayne Simmonds and Sean Couturier scored for the playoff-bound Flyers, who are tied for third in the Metropolitan Division with Columbus. "I thought we were up today," Philadelphia coach Craig Berube said. "I thought we competed real hard. The first five minutes, we turned the puck over a couple of times and they ended up getting a goal. But other than that, I liked the way we played tonight. We didnt finish, in my opinion, good enough." Anders Lindback played in place of injured Tampa Bay starting goalie Ben Bishop, who may not be ready for the start of the playoff series next week against Montreal due to an upper-body injury. Bishop, 37-14-7 this season, left Tuesday nights game against Toronto early in the first period after it appeared he hurt his left elbow. Lindback stopped 34 shots, including a glove save on Tye McGinns in-close rebound with 8 minutes left in the first. He came off the bench Tuesday and made 25 saves in a 3-0 victory over the Maple Leafs. ";Its a great opportunity for him, and hes seizing the moment," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said. [b]Alan Page Vikings Jersey[/b]. Panik won a race for the puck behind the net, moved out front and gave Tampa Bay a 2-1 lead on a back-hand rebound of his own shot 4:33 into the third. It stopped the right wings 17-game goal drought. Brewer extended the advantage to 3-1 when he beat Ray Emery from the left circle at 9:43 of the third. After the Flyers pulled within one when Tampa Bays Ondrej Palat deflected Couturiers pass past Lindback at 12:22, Stamkos power-play goal made it 4-2 with 5:46 remaining. "I thought we played well for 40 again, and then we were hit or miss in the third," Simmonds said. "We had some really good shifts, and then we had some bonehead plays which cost us the game. Were not playing smart. Were not keeping it simple." Stamkos setup Johnsons goal from the left circle 2 minutes into the game. Johnson set a team rookie record, breaking the mark set by Stamkos, with his 24th goal this season. Simmonds tied it at 1 on an in-close turnaround goal during a power play with 1:21 to go in the second. The Flyers entered with the NHLs top-ranked road power play. Emery turned aside two good scoring chances by both Stamkos and Ryan Callahan during a second-period Tampa Bay power play. He finished with 26 saves. Notes: With Lindback out of position after making a save in the third, Lightning D Radko Gudas stopped a shot in the crease. "Give me goalie pads," Gudas joked. "Lucky it hit me." ... Tampa Bay D Michael Kostka returned and had two assists after missing three games with a concussion. ... The Flyers have lost six straight road games against Tampa Bay. ... Lightning D Sami Salo sat out with an undisclosed upper-body injury.
