    VANCOUVER - With their leading scorer sidelined because of the flu, the Vancouver Canucks turned to some unlikely sources for offence on Tuesday night. [b]Cheap Nike NBA Jerseys[/b].Ryan Stanton scored his first goal in more than a year and Nick Bonino and Linden Vey also broke long droughts as Vancouver downed the New York Islanders 3-2.I think every team thats good in this league and wins has some secondary scoring, said Santon. I think we got it tonight. Bonino got out of a slump there, Vey got one and probably the least likely guy to get one — me — got one.It was nice and it feels so much better in a win.Stantons goal was the rugged defencemans first in 84 games dating back to Oct. 17, 2013, while Bonino scored his first in eight games and Vey buried his first in the last 13.It hasnt been fun. I think Im doing well in other areas of the ice, said Bonino, who now has two goals in the last 24 games. I feel like Im playing good hockey, the puck just wouldnt go in. There have been chances every night. Tonight one went in. Hopefully it continues.Vey, who was only elevated into the lineup after Canucks sniper Radim Vrbata and his 16 goals and 13 assists fell ill earlier in the day, found out he would be suiting up after arriving at Rogers Arena about 2 1/2 hours before faceoff.You need guys to step up. Obviously (Bonino) has been snake bitten for a while and hes had lots of chances, said Vey. Its good to see him find one. And obviously you get a goal from Stants whos struggled in the goal department this year.Canucks head coach Willie Desjardins reunited Henrik and Daniel Sedin with Alexandre Burrows on the first line and had planned to put Bonino and Chris Higgins with Vrbata before Vey was pressed into action. While the twins werent able to click with Burrows, Vey found chemistry on with his linemates.I think its always nice to capitalize on an opportunity, said Vey, who was healthy scratch on Saturday. I just wanted to bring a little more energy and create a little bit more and I got to play with Bonino and Higgins. Those guys are two great players and it makes the game a lot easier.Eddie Lack got the call in place of No. 1 goalie Ryan Miller and made 21 saves for the Canucks (23-12-3) in his first start since Dec. 17. The win improved Vancouver to 5-1-1 over its last seven.I really felt like we played a good team game. I feel like they made me see the puck all night, said Lack, who turned 27 on Monday. I kind of felt it took me five, 10 minutes to get into the groove a little bit. I felt like I was chasing the game a little bit, maybe like training camp again. After that I felt normal.Matt Martin and Mikhail Grabovski scored and Jaroslav Halak made 17 stops for New York (26-13-1), which was coming off a 5-2 loss to the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.I didnt think we were sharp. We didnt execute, said Islanders forward Kyle Okposo. The last couple games, even three games, we havent been ourselves, havent had that same pop and we just have to find a way to get that back.Its not time to panic, but we just need to be better.Vancouver grabbed a 2-1 lead at 8:01 of the second period after New York defenceman Thomas Hickey tried to clear the puck up the middle of the Islanders zone. It was intercepted by Kevin Bieksa at the blue-line and he fired a shot that Bonino redirected in front of Halak before shovelling home the rebound.Vey then stretched the lead to two at 17:36 after Hickey turned the puck over on a rush and Derek Dorsett fed a streaking Vey, who moved in alone and fired a shot through Halaks pads for his sixth of the season.We played a pretty good hockey game, but you cant manage the puck like that and expect to win. Thats the bottom line, said Islanders head coach Jack Capuano. The whole thing about this game is being able to execute your breakouts and for whatever reason or defence didnt move the puck tonight and before you know it, its in the back of our net.The Canucks nursed that 3-1 lead in the third period and Lack was rarely threatened until Grabovski scored his sixth of the season and first in 11 games off a pass from Okposo after a Bieksa turnover at 14:33.Lack and the Canucks were embarrassed by the Islanders at Rogers Arena last March in a game that saw Vancouver blow a 3-0 third-period lead in a 7-4 loss, but the hosts would hold off a late charge on this night.I was kind of thinking of it a little bit before the third period, but once we started playing I was feeling normal again, said Lack. The Islanders opened the scoring at 9:38 of the first period after Islanders defenceman Travis Hamonic moved down the right side off the rush and threw the puck in front to Martin, who fought off a check from Bieksa to direct home his fifth of the season.The Canucks got that one back less than three minutes when Vancouver forward Brad Richardson jumped on New Yorks first costly turnover behind Halaks net and walked out front. Halak made the first save, but the rebound squirted to Stanton and the pinching defenceman scored his first goal in more than 14 months into the open side.It definitely felt nice, he said. Obviously Im not a huge goal scorer, but when you go 80 some games without scoring a goal it definitely starts to creep in the back of your mind.Notes: The Canucks lost Richardson to a lower-body injury in the second period, but Desjardins said he expected him to be OK. ... Grabovskis goal was just his second in the last 22 games. ... Vancouver continues a five-game homestand on Thursday against Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers. ...

In the other Group A game, the Czech Republic stunned Canada, 5-4 in a shootout. Dominik Simon scored the deciding goal in the tiebreaker. The United States scored its first three goals on power plays. "Overall, I love to see the power-play goals we were able to get tonight," said U. [b]Basketball Jerseys China[/b] . Less than 24 hours later, in the same arena, he tried to recreate the magic of his all-time favourite player. Hilliard scored a career-high 26 points and No. SAN FRANCISCO -- Brandon McCarthy finally pitched well on the road. McCarthy hadnt won away from Arizona since May 18 before putting together a dominant performance in San Francisco on Saturday night. The right-hander allowed one run and six hits in eight innings as the Diamondbacks beat the Giants 2-1. He had been 0-4 with an 11.40 ERA in his previous four road starts, but was able to throw strikes against San Francisco. McCarty (4-9) struck out six and walked one. He threw 70 strikes in 99 pitches. "For me I have to have command and if I am not using everything and using it to both sides of the plate it becomes a much easier job for teams to hit me," McCarthy said. McCarthy was on the 15-day disabled list from May 31 to August 2 with a right shoulder inflammation and had been struggling with his mechanics most of the season until recently. "Once I was able to kind of fix what I needed to mechanically everything has gone back into place the way I hoped it would," McCarthy said. "Its less thinking and just kind of being able to execute." McCarthy has now walked three batters or less in 76 consecutive starts, the third-longest active streak in baseball. Brad Ziegler pitched a scoreless ninth for his ninth save in 11 chances. Matt Cain (8-9) gave up two runs and eight hits in 6 1-3 innings. He struck out three and walked four. "I didnt make some pitches when I needed too and it ended up costing us," Cain said. He was activated from the 15-day disabled list prior to the game after missing 14 games with a contusion on his right forearm. Coming into the game Cain had just one win in his last nine starts at home, going 1-5 with a 5.36 era over that stretch. "Coming off the DL, its been a while since hes pitched and he did a good job," Giants manager Bruce Bochy said of Cain. "He went into the seventh and gave up only two runs. He made a couple mistakes but he pitched well." Paul Goldschmidt had three hits, including a triple. "I just got some good pitches to hit," Goldschmidt said. [b]Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys[/b]. "If you ask Cain he probably would say they were a few mistakes." Arizona broke a 1-1 tie in the fifth inning when Goldschmidt drove in Adam Eaton with a triple to deep right centerfield. Eaton had walked. The Giants got to McCarthy in the third inning as Brandon Crawford led off with a single and was bunted over to second by Cain. After a fielders choice moved Crawford to third he scored on Marco Scutaros single. With San Francisco leading 1-0, Arizona got the run back as Gerardo Parra hit a two-out single to right-field to drive in Goldschmidt, who led off the inning with a single. The Diamondbacks ended the first, third and eighth innings by getting thrown out on the bases. In the first Goldschmidt singled with two outs but was caught attempting to steal second. In the third A.J. Pollock singled with one out but was doubled up on a fly out to Giants centerfielder Angel Pagan. Pollock was stealing second on the play and didnt realize that the ball was a fly-out and was barely beaten by the throw back to first. In the eighth Will Nieves was thrown out at the plate trying to score from first on a double to left centerfield by Parra with two outs. Pagan hit cutoff man Crawford who relayed the throw to Giants catcher Hector Sanchez for the tag out. "We were just trying to be aggressive on the base paths," Goldschmidt said. "That was an unbelievable throw to the plate by Crawford." NOTES: Sundays game features starting pitchers Wade Miley (9-10, 3.78) for Arizona versus Madison Bumgarner (11-9, 2.91) for the Giants. ... McCarthy had not won on the road since May 18 at Miami and was 0-4 with an 11.40 era in his previous four road starts. ... Arizonas Chris Owings registered his first Major League hit in the sixth, a single off Cain. Owings added a second single in the ninth inning and had his first Major League stolen base later in the inning. ... Pagan had two throwing assists in the game.
