PHILADELPHIA -- After playing some of their best hockey this month, the Philadelphia Flyers now sit and wait. Stitched Reds Jerseys . Or take a relaxing vacation somewhere warm. Brayden Schenn and Scott Hartnell scored, Ray Emery stopped 32 shots and the Flyers beat the Calgary Flames 2-1 on Saturday for their fourth straight victory. With momentum going their way, its not an ideal time for Philadelphia to take 18 days off for the Olympic break. Five players are headed to Sochi to play for their countries and several others are headed to sunny destinations. "We knew this was going to happen," Schenn said. "Its up to us to keep in shape and be ready when we come back." Flyers chairman Ed Snider expressed his disdain for the break Thursday night, saying "its ridiculous. Theres no benefit to us whatsoever." Players werent quite that vocal. "Im going to relax mentally and make sure Im ready for the second half," captain Claude Giroux said. Making his first start since Jan. 23, Emery had a shutout going until Matt Stajan scored with 2:26 left. The Flyers are one point behind the New York Rangers for fourth place in the Eastern Conference. Despite winning six of their past eight games, the Flames are tied for the third-fewest points in the NHL. "I think weve been playing good hockey. Weve been in every game," Stajan said. "Sometimes the hockey gods dont reward you, and thats not to say they didnt play well. They had chances, too, that our goalie made some saves. Thats the game. Well take this break, come back, and try and get back at it on home ice." The teams resume their regular-season schedule Feb. 27. Schenn gave the Flyers a 1-0 lead in the second period when he ripped a shot from the left circle off goalie Reto Berras glove and into the net. Wayne Simmonds set it up with a nice pass from the side of the net. Hartnell made it 2-0 early in the third when he scored his 15th goal, deflecting a slap shot by Giroux. Passed over by Team Canada for the Olympics, Giroux has been one of the leagues top players the past two months. He has 37 points in 29 games since Dec. 11. Giroux still plans to watch the Winter Games and root for Canada. "Its a great event and good hockey," he said. Forwards Michael Raffl and Jakub Voracek, and defencemen Kimmo Timonen, Andrej Meszaros and Mark Streit are the Flyers heading to the Olympics. Berra and defenceman Ladislav Smid are the only Flames going. "I think the team is getting comfortable with the way we are expected to play," Emery said. "I think the rest of the year is not so much easier, but you get into the playoff battles and you get those competitive juices flowing. I think the tough part is out of the way, the tough months are normally January and February and it gets a bit long."

The Oakland Athletics still dont have the new ballpark he says he believes they desperately need. Selig praised all parties after the As recently reached a 10-year lease agreement with the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Authority to stay at the rundown Coliseum. Whether the As are able to one day build a new stadium at the current Coliseum site or elsewhere in Oakland, Selig will support the teams ideas. "This is always something I wanted to get resolved before I leave office, which is another 5 1/2 or six months," Selig said Tuesday, citing litigation as the current snag. "Ive always said the local club, they know their market best." Sitting next to fraternity brother and longtime friend, As owner Lew Wolff, Selig acknowledged the criticisms of Oaklands ballpark situation while saying, "Its complicated, its very complicated." Earlier this year, the City of San Jose appealed a judges decision throwing out a key argument in its lawsuit against Major League Baseball over the As plans to relocate to San Jose, where the San Francisco Giants hold territorial rights. At the January 2012 owners meetings, Selig said the Bay Area situation was on the "front burner." He appointed a committee in March 2009 to study the issues facing the teams, but never ruled on the matter. "I know theres been criticism about the length this has taken. Im proud of everything weve done the last 22 years, but this is one of those things as I look back on it, however, its complicated, its very complicated," Selig said. Reds Austin Brice Jersey. "Now we have litigation, so everything is now on hold. Thats just a fact of life once we get in litigation. But let me say at the outset, this team needs a new ballpark. ... Once the litigations resolved, then well all proceed." Rob Manfred will succeed the 80-year-old Selig on Jan. 25. Selig is making stops at all of the ballparks during his farewell tour. He said Manfred is up to speed on the challenges for the low-budget As, who have won the past two AL West titles. "Theyve done a remarkable job under the circumstances," Selig said. "One of the reasons for the resurgence of this sport, there are multiple reasons, are the new stadiums. ... I wish it had been resolved. I understand peoples frustrations, I do understand. Theres a lot of history here." Selig met with club officials during his short visit. Oaklands Bob Melvin was eager to get some time with Selig, who helped the manager get a job with Milwaukee after his playing days. Melvin had quite a connection: His late great-aunt, Estie, played bridge with Seligs parents. "Its quite the industry at this point now. Hes made a lot of changes in his tenure, whether starting with interleague, the competitive balance now and the strides that they took getting it to this point, instant replay," Melvin said. "Theres a lot of things hes done that for an old-school guy has really had an eye on some of the new-school things. Its been an incredible run." cheap falcons jerseys cheap ravens jerseys cheap bills jerseys cheap bears jerseys cheap bengals jerseys cheap cowboys jerseys cheap lions jerseys cheap texans jerseys cheap colts jerseys cheap jaguars jerseys cheap chiefs jerseys cheap rams jerseys cheap dolphins jerseys cheap vikings jerseys cheap saints jerseys cheap giants jerseys cheap jets jerseys cheap eagles jerseys cheap steelers jerseys cheap 49ers jerseys ' ' '
