get better at that
SEATTLE -- Tarvaris Jackson led Seattle on three first-half scoring drives, and Terrelle Pryor struggled through his worst performance of the preseason with a chance at earning Oaklands starting quarterback job in the Seahawks 22-6 preseason victory. Jakub Vrana Jersey . Jackson led the Seahawks to a trio of field goals from Steven Hauschka, including kicks of 51 and 56 yards. Jackson got the bulk of time in the first half after Russell Wilson made a brief cameo, leading the Seahawks to their first touchdown on their opening drive. Hauschka also hit from 22, 43 and 53 yards. Pryor had turned the Raiders quarterback situation into a real competition with his performance during the preseason. Matt Flynn sat out Thursday with a sore elbow, and Pryor was given an entire half to try and show he deserved the job. He was lacklustre, completing 3 of 8 passes for 31 yards and an interception. Seattle won its ninth straight preseason game. Jackson finished 12 of 17 passing for 119 yards and likely locked up the backup job to Wilson. Meanwhile, Oakland coach Dennis Allen has a difficult decision: start the season with Pryor or, if hes healthy, go with Flynn. Pryor flashed a little of what had his home fans chanting his name last week. On his second drive, Pryor threw darts to Rod Streeter for a pair of 14-yard receptions and later added a 25-yard scramble that led to the first of Justin Medlocks two field goals. But he was not impressive to the point of making the decision obvious for Allen. Pryor also didnt see much of the field. Following the field goal, Seattle kept the ball for nearly eight minutes on a 17-play drive that led to Hauschkas 22-yard field goal. Pryor immediately gave the ball back to Seattle, underthrowing Jacoby Ford on a deep pass and Seattles Walter Thurmond made a one-handed interception. Seattle then had an 11-play drive leading to another Hauschka field goal. Most of the interest on the Seahawks sideline had to do with guest Snoop Dogg, who sported a grey No. 24 jersey with "Snoop" across the back and Seahawks gloves. He was in the locker room before the game and left for his scheduled concert nearby during the first half. Wilson and most of Seattles starting offence was in for all of three minutes. Wilson hit Stephen Williams for 50 yards on the second play of the game, later scrambled for 11 yards, and finally found rookie tight end Luke Willson for 20 yards. Robert Turbin then capped the drive on a 3-yard run and Wilsons night was complete. The Seahawks did have two injuries that could have an impact on the final 53-man roster. Williams suffered a concussion on his 50-yard reception, and rookie offensive lineman Michael Bowie injured a shoulder. Both were expected to be on the edge of making the final cuts. Rod Langway Jersey . Mako Vunipola was promoted from the reserves, with Matt Mullan called up to the bench on Thursday. "It is important that Joe is with his partner at this exciting time," England coach Stuart Lancaster said. Custom Washington Capitals Jerseys . Kenny Miller scored from the penalty spot and Camilo Sanvezzo came off the bench to add two late goals as the Whitecaps kept their playoff hopes alive with a 3-0 victory over the sagging Impact on Saturday afternoon.CHICAGO -- On Friday night, the Los Angeles Kings were in Anaheim for Game 7 of their second-round series against the top-seeded Ducks. On Saturday, they travelled 1,700 miles to Chicago on the eve of Game 1 of the Western Conference finals. Not much rest for Los Angeles, but certainly better than the alternative. Watch Game 1 on TSN and TSN GO, today at 3pm et/Noon pt. The Kings will take on the Blackhawks on Sunday afternoon in a short turnaround from their series-clinching 6-2 victory over Anaheim. It is a rematch of last years Western Conference finals, when the Blackhawks won in five games on the way to their second Stanley Cup title in four seasons. "Im not sure about the energy part of it," Kings coach Darryl Sutter said Saturday, "but I know how we handle losses and how we handle wins and how we handle travel, so you know theyre going to be honest in their preparation. You can trust that part of it. "Itll be certainly about putting forth their best effort, I know that." Los Angeles is making its third consecutive appearance in the Western Conference finals after the Kings rallied past San Jose and Anaheim in the first two series. The Sharks had a 3-0 lead in the first round, and the Ducks led 3-2 in their series against the Kings. Chicago has been waiting for its next opponent since it beat Minnesota 2-1 in overtime in Game 6 on Tuesday night. The Blackhawks had a similar break after they eliminated St. Louis in the first round. "I think the days off helps every team this time of year, get some rest, allows you to prepare for your opponent," Blackhawks forward Patrick Sharp said. "At the end of the day, once that puck drops, I think both teams are going to be ready to play." The break also provided more time for Chicago forward Andrew Shaw to get healthy. The tenacious centre missed the final five games of the Wild seriies with an apparent right leg injury, but he skated before the Blackhawks practiced on Saturday and could return after Game 1 against the Kings. T. J. Oshie Jersey. Los Angeles is hoping for the return of injured defencemen Robyn Regehr and Willie Mitchell. Mitchell has missed eight games, but is skating again. Sutter said he could return against Chicago. "You have a muscle injury that was related to a knee injury," Sutter said after practice at the teams facility in El Segundo, California. "Cant (be) one of those deals where you get a guy for five minutes. You need to know that you get him for the whole game." The status of Shaw, Regehr and Mitchell could be a factor in a matchup of the NHLs second-highest scoring team in Chicago and the stingiest team in the league in Los Angeles. "Theyre obviously defending champs, and we want to take that back," Kings forward Jarret Stoll said. "We know what it takes to win and weve tasted that and it tastes pretty good. So we want to get it back from them." Los Angeles was the defending champion when it took on Chicago in the playoffs last year. But the banged-up Kings were unable to keep up with the high-flying Blackhawks, who got a hat trick from Patrick Kane in the clinching double-overtime victory in Game 5. Chicago is 9-2 against Los Angeles over the past two years, outscoring the Kings 35-24. "Theyre playing really well right now so weve got to be focused on what theyve been doing the last couple series," Blackhawks defenceman Brent Seabrook said. "Theyre never out of a game or a series. If we get up, we have to step on their throats. If were down, we have to work like hell to get back. "But at the end of the day we have to play our game and focus on what weve been doing well throughout the playoffs, get better at that and be the team that we can be."
