stuck to our game plan for the first peri

TORONTO -- Now the Toronto Argonauts have no excuse for using a picture of Aaron Maybin as a New York Jet on their website. Denis Suarez Barcelona Jersey . The 25-year-old import defensive end made his CFL debut Friday night in the Argos 23-20 loss to the Montreal Alouettes. While Maybin acknowledged it takes more than a week to learn a new defence, he said it was a good night. "Obviously you never want to start off with a loss in your debut game," said the Baltimore native. "But one thing I can say is Im happy to be back on a football field, man. It was a blast to get out here, fly around and play with these guys. They have an extremely talented team. Its good to be a part of something like that again." Having already locked up first place in the East, the Argos had nothing riding on the game. As such, they fielded a lineup that was virtually unrecognizable. Seventeen of 24 starters were shelved. That helped point the spotlight at Maybin, selected 11th overall in the 2009 NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills. After his stint with the Jets, he was a final training camp cut of the Cincinnati Bengals on Aug. 18. The Argos signed him as a free agent on Oct. 27, looking to add some teeth to a defence that ranked seventh in the league with 38 sacks going into Fridays game. Toronto head coach Scott Milanovich had little by way of immediate review. "I saw him make a couple of a plays and be athletic but I dont get to study our defence during a game. Im generally concerned more about what were running on offence and trying to get prepared there. "So itd be unfair for me to really evaluate him at this point." Wearing No. 56, Maybin accounted for two of the Argos 33 defensive tackles on the night and did his best to make a nuisance of himself on other plays. Listed at six foot four and 237 pounds, Maybin is a willowy pass rusher who uses his speed to try to beat defenders. He believes that might be a good fit north of the border. "Its a lot more of a passing- and skill-oriented game. You see those guys kind of getting into space a lot more. A guy like myself, he can showcase his talents a little bit. I feel like its a pretty good fit." Maybin may be a CFLer now but he was wearing an NFL-size shiny chain as he met with reporters. His last game was in the NFL pre-season. His last regular season outing was last year with the Jets. "I knew how much I missed it. It was just a matter of me deciding whether or not I missed it enough to make that long-haul commitment again. Being back out here and seeing how (much) fun it is to me and how much you do miss it and all that kind of stiff, it was good." He says his immediate goal is to try to help the Argos make the Grey Cup. "Everything after that, well kind of figure out as it comes." Jordi Masip Jersey . Josh Bailey had a goal and an assist as the New York Islanders earned a 2-1 win over Ottawa Wednesday, leaving the Senators five points out of a playoff spot with just five games to play and four teams ahead of them.

The Philadelphia Eagles acquired running back Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for a fifth-round draft pick on Tuesday.MONTREAL -- The Edmonton Oilers taught Montreal Canadiens forward Lars Eller a tough lesson. Eller said the Oilers were a "junior team" that was "all over the place" before Edmontons 4-3 victory over Montreal on Tuesday night, Oilers head coach Dallas Eakins took offence to Ellers comments and used it to motivate his youthful team. "When youve got some young player whos trying to get his feet wet calling an organization a junior team, people take notice," said Eakins. "I knew it was going to turn. It makes for great banter in our dressing room. "That is a total hockey god thing. Im sure that young man has learnt his lesson, and I highly doubt youll see anything like that out of his mouth again." Eller, Montreals leading goal-scorer, had only one shot on net and didnt earn any points in the loss. "Hes a young player," said Canadiens head coach Michel Therrien of Eller. "I think hell learn from that. He made inappropriate comments." Ales Hemsky and Ladislav Smid both scored in the second period for Edmonton (3-6-1) to tie the game 2-2. Jeff Petry and Ryan Jones then had back-to-back goals in the third to give the Oilers a 4-2 lead. Tomas Plekanec and Brendan Gallagher struck in the first period to give Montreal (5-4-0) the lead and Brian Gionta scored with three seconds left to play. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins was at the heart of Edmontons turnaround with two assists. "I got a huge momentum boost from (Eakins) talk between periods," said Nugent-Hopkins. "That was big for us. I thought we responded well. "Its what we needed at that point. We were losing battles, we werent playing with the passion that we need to win games in that situation." With the win, the Oilers ended a six-game road trip on a high. They went 2-3-1 on that stretch, and sit in last place in the Pacific Division. Plekanec put the Canadiens on the board first when he scored a power-play goal at 16:36 of the firrst period. Aleix Vidal Barcelona Jersey. Andrei Markov started the play, showing great vision with a diagonal cross-ice pass from the blue-line. Plekanec made no mistake slotting home his fourth goal of the season between Devan Dubnyks legs. Rookie Michael Bournival got an assist on the play. Gallagher increased Montreals lead less than two minutes later. Gallagher intercepted a poor clearance by the Oilers Jones and beat Dubnyk glove-side with a quick wrist shot. Edmonton answered with two goals of its own in quick succession. Hemsky scored the first at 12:50 of the second period, getting around Alex Galchenyuk with ease and beating Price above the shoulder. Smid then tied the game 2-2 with his first of the year, when he put the rebound of a Nugent-Hopkins shot into a gaping net at 15:37. Edmonton completed the comeback when Petry scored at 7:59 of the third. Nugent-Hopkins pretended to shoot on a 2-on-1, but instead dished the puck to Petry who made no mistake from close range. Jones put the game out of reach, scoring the eventual game-winner at 9:57. Brian Gionta scored a late consolation goal for the Canadiens with three seconds remaining. "We cant expect to play one period and win," said Gionta. "We had a great start, we did what we wanted to, we stuck to our game plan for the first period, and we didnt adjust after that. "We have to do a better job of finding a way to play 60 minutes." The injury-plagued Canadiens were without the services of Max Pacioretty, Brandon Prust and Daniel Briere. All three forwards sustained injuries last week. Edmonton was missing star forward Taylor Hall and veteran Ryan Smyth. Hall, who injured his knee on Saturday in the Oilers win over Ottawa, is expected to be out four weeks. Rookie defenceman Nathan Beaulieu, who was sent down to Hamilton on the weekend, was recalled by the Canadiens and played in place of Jarred Tinordi. Beaulieu finished the game with three blocked shots and 11:26 of ice time.
