    TORONTO -- Game 5 has suddenly become Game 7 for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Fake Shoes From China . After taking an overtime punch to the gut on Wednesday night, the Leafs headed to Boston on Thursday trailing the Boston Bruins three games to one in their first-round series. Game 5 goes Friday. "This series isnt over, for sure," winger Joffrey Lupul said defiantly after the 4-3 loss at the Air Canada Centre. Toronto will have to mount its comeback without tough defenceman Mark Fraser, who underwent surgery to repair a fracture between the eyes and the cranial area after taking a Milan Lucic shot to the face. Toronto coach Randy Carlyle says the burly blue-liner was resting at home and had been texting and talking to his teammates Thursday morning. "Hes a well-respected guy in our locker-room," said captain Dion Phaneuf. "Hes done a great job all year for us physically, playing big minutes. "Hes just a great teammate. It was a scary situation but were glad hes doing OK." John-Michael Liles, a healthy scratch in recent games, is expected to take Frasers place in the lineup in the do-or-die game at Bostons TD Garden. "Its all about winning that game. Its like a Game 7," said forward Clarke MacArthur. "We win that one, it can turn things around." Its a tough ask. The playoff-savvy Bruins are 15-2 when leading a best-of-seven series 3-1. Toronto is 2-12-1 in its last 15 games in Boston. As is their wont, the Leafs looked for positives in the wake of Wednesdays loss. "Everything becomes more difficult. But its not the end of the world," said Carlyle. "Weve done a lot of good things." "Its a new day," said forward Mikhail Grabovski, who has played well while putting his slight body on the line. They took an early lead against the Bruins, registered an eye-popping 71 hits and bombarded Tuukka Rask with 48 shots. And Matt Frattin hit the goalpost in overtime. "It quite easily could be a 2-2 series right now," said MacArthur. "Its unfortunate that it isnt." "(Wednesday) night we had our chances to win the game," said forward Jay McClement. The coach admitted the loss hurt. "But the bottom line is you cant change what happened last night," Carlyle told reporters at the teams training facility before flying out to Boston. "Now its time to regroup and thats what were here to do. Gather this group together -- reset, refocus, re-energize. Do all those things we normally do. "Weve got to go in and win a game in Boston." That involves raising their game, while ignoring the effects of a physical series that has seen Toronto outhit Boston 200 to 165. "Our team has got to find a way to play to a higher level," said Carlyle. "With the level of game that was played (Wednesday) night, both teams are going to be tired. Both teams are going to be bruised up." On the minus side Wednesday, the Leafs gave up a 2-0 lead and Phaneuf was punished in overtime for pinching in and trying to get Nathan Horton and/or the puck. The Bruin, who was flattened on the play, got the puck past the Leaf defenceman and David Krejci went on to beat James Reimer on a two-on-one. MacArthur called it a tough break. "We didnt lose the game on that play," he said, ignoring the fact that they actually did. "We had a 2-0 lead in that game. Theres other things that could have prevented it from getting to that situation." As he did after the game, Phaneuf emerged Thursday to face the music. Once again, he took responsibility for "a split-second decision." "Playoffs are about momentum and obviously that was a momentum swing," he said. "But weve got a big game there on Friday, weve got to move past this and move past (Wednesday) nights loss." "Theres no time to sit here and feel sorry about what happened," he added. "Its done now and weve got to focus on Friday." Carlyle chose not to dwell on the mistake. "In reality, if you look at the way Dions played for our hockey club, hes represented our team as a captain, hes played 30-plus minutes, he leads our team in a lot of different categories -- and emotionally and physically on the ice. "Without him, we wouldnt be here." Only a handful of Leafs hit the ice Thursday at the teams training centre: backup goalie Ben Scrivens and recent scratches Joe Colborne, Frazer McLaren, Ryan Hamilton and defenceman Jesse Blacker, who has been brought up from the AHL Marlies as defensive cover Fake Nike Shoes . Burris threw two TD passes, including a key 15-yard fourth-quarter strike to Bakari Grant that effectively countered a Toronto comeback bid and led Hamilton to a 33-19 victory. Fake Shoes Website . At a Manhattan federal court hearing, attorney Jordan Siev said his law office has gotten more evidence nearly every day to support its lawsuit accusing MLB and Selig of going on a "witch hunt" to ruin Rodriguezs reputation and career. He said the defendants went "way over the line. . But what about the officials? Every sport has officials and they also have stories about hard work and sacrifice but their accomplishments are seldom recognized by anyone outside their inner circle. INGLEWOOD, Calif. -- Cruiserweight world titleholder Oleksandr Usyk hoped to catch the attention of the American audience in his United States debut, and although he retained his belt, he did not exactly impress.Fighting on the Bernard Hopkins-Joe Smith Jr. undercard on Saturday night at The Forum, Usyk dropped fellow southpaw Thabiso The Rock Mchunu three times en route to a ninth-round knockout victory that featured very little action despite the knockdowns.Nonetheless, Usyk retained his 200-pound world title for the first time since going to Poland in September and winning a unanimous decision against hometown fighter Krzysztof Glowacki to take his world title and set a division record.By winning the belt in only his 10th professional fight, Usyk, the 2012 Olympic heavyweight gold medalist for Ukraine, broke the division record for fewest fights needed to win a world title, surpassing the mark held by Evander Holyfield, who won a cruiserweight world title in his 12th fight by outpointing Hall of Famer Dwight Muhammad Qawi in an epic 15-rounder in 1986.I get to take my belt back home, and I got to do it with my fellow Ukrainians in the crowd, Usyk said. We were hoping to get the knockout earlier, but we got it and were looking forward to bringing more fights to this cruiserweight division.The fight got off to a painfully slow start with neither fighter throwing many punches. They stared, feinted and occasionally threw one shot at a time, prompting the crowd to boo before the second round had ended. The fight meandered that way for the next few rounds until the 29-year-old Usyk (11-0, 10 KOs) got a bit busier in the fifth round and began to land combinations.In the sixth round he picked it up even more and seemed to have 28-year-old Mchunu (17-3, 11 KOs), of South Africa, in trouble with a series of power shots before knocking him down with a left uppercut.When the round was over, Mchunu looked exhausted as he sat on his stool and spit a stream of blood into the bucket.At that point of the fight, Usyk was firmly in control and attacking the shorter Mchunu with stiff jabs. Then he scored two knockdowns in the ninth round, both on left hands. After the second one, referee Lou Moret waved off the fight at 1 minute, 53 seconds.The styles didnt mesh, but any time you can get a knockout, youll take it, said K2 Promotions Tom Loeffler, Usyks promoter.According to CompuBox punch statistics, Usyk landed 163 of 517 blows (32 percent), and Mchunu, who had almost no power on his shots, landed 76 of 278 (27 percent).He got the better of me, and he used it against me, Mchunu said. All I can say now is that we have to go back to square one.Usyks next fight could land on the HBO PPV undercard of the March 18 middleweight world title fight between Gennady Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs. The fight, which will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York, was announced earlier Saturday.Diaz cruises past GarciaRising featherweight contender Joseph JoJo Diaz Jr., a 2012 U.S. Olympian, rolled to a shutout decision -- 100-90 on all three scorecards -- to retain his regional belt against Horacio Violento Garcia in a high-contact fight.Diaz (23-0, 13 KOs), 23, of South El Monte, California, was quicker and appeared to be the heavier hitter as he attacked Garcia to the body and with uppercuts throughout the fight. Garcia (30-2-1, 22 KOs), 26, of Mexico, took a lot of clean punches, as Garcia landed many more shots than him. According to CompuBox, he landed 266 of 629 blows (42 percent), while Garcia landed 116 of 690 (17 percent).I knew I was facing a tough, experienced opponent, so my plan was to go in there and get him using my jabs, angles and everything I worked on in my training camp, Diaz said. I came in and got what I waanted and Im very happy with the outcome. Replica Shoes 2019. Garcias only previous loss came by 10-round decision to former three-division world titleholder Hozumi Hasegawa in Japan in 2015.It was a power versus speed fight, Garcia said. For every power punch I would throw, he would throw two. I agree with the judges decision, and well hit the gym to make the adjustments.Diaz went 4-0 on the year and put himself in position for a possible title shot in 2017.Middleweight Yamaguchi Falcao (12-0, 6 KOs), a 28-year-old southpaw who won a 2012 Olympic bronze medal for Brazil, stopped Mexicos German Perez (10-3-3, 3 KOs) in just 27 seconds when he dropped him and Perez could not continue because of a twisted ankle.Irish middleweight prospect Jason Quigley (12-0, 10 KOs) crushed chin-challenged Jorge Melendez (28-7-1, 26 KOs), of Puerto Rico. Quigley dropped Melendez three times in the first round and got the stoppage when the Melendez corner threw in the towel, as Quigley was teeing off on him along the ropes. Referee Gerald White stopped the fight at 2 minutes, 24 seconds.Me and [trainer] Manny Robles were ready to go all 10 rounds if necessary, Quigley said. He wanted the knockout more than I did. [Melendez] was coming forward and risking heavy punches to his own detriment.Lightweight Ryan Garcia (7-0, 6 KOs), an 18-year-old from Victorville, California, who recently signed with Golden Boy, stopped Mexicos Antonio Martinez (6-8, 5 KOs) at 2 minutes of the second round.I was a little nervous since this was my first timer as a Golden Boy Fighter, said Garcia, who was 215-15 as an amateur and a 15-time national champion. I set him up perfectly for me to utilize my straight jab and found a way to maneuver his awkward style. Im going to look back at the tape and just keep on improving.Junior lightweight Carlos Morales (15-1-3, 6 KOs), of Los Angeles, eked out an unpopular split decision against Charles Huerta (18-5, 10 KOs), of Paramount, California. Two judges scored it for Morales, 96-93 and 95-94, and one had it for Huerta, 96-93, who knocked Morales down with a left hook in the eighth round.He was on his game, and it was a tough fight, Morales said. I was caught completely off guard by his left hook, and I think that slowed me down, and the cut on my nose was a result of four hard rounds of boxing.Lightweight Christian Chimpa Gonzalez (16-0, 14 KOs), from Buena Park, California, dropped Jonathan Perez (36-16, 28 KOs), of Miami, Florida, in the second round and knocked him out at 24 seconds of the third round.My plan was to go in to the ring and practice what I had worked on in the gym, which was working on my jab, Gonzalez said. We knew we were facing an experienced opponent, and not much would surprise him, but my team and I trained hard on our plan, and Im very happy to have taken the knockout.Los Angeles lightweight Ivan Delgado (10-0-1, 3 KOs) knocked out Mexicos Roberto Rivera (6-4, 5 KOs) at 1 minute, 18 seconds of the sixth round.I feel great about my win, Delgado said. I knew I had to keep at my opponent in order to secure the knockout. I went heavy on the offensive, and I hadnt studied my opponent much before, but I knew it wasnt going to be an easy fight. Next stop is a state title in 2017.Featherweight Joet Gonzalez (15-0, 6 KOs), of Glendora, California, knocked out Mexicos Jairo Hernandez (15-11, 8 KOs) at 2 minutes, 40 seconds of the fourth round of a one-sided fight.Im glad we got the stoppage in the fourth round. Gonzalez said. I was expecting him to come forward more, and I think he was a bit cautious of my power blows. Overall, Im satisfied with my performance tonight. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
