Nyheim Hines Jersey . -- Louis Leblanc scored two goals, including the overtime winner, as the Hamilton Bulldogs defeated the Rochester Americans 4-3 in American Hockey League action on Friday. Nick Tarnasky and Magnus Nygren also had goals for the Bulldogs (3-1-2), and Robert Mayer made 27 saves in the win. Luke Adam, Frederick Roy and Brayden McNabb scored for the Americans (3-2-1), while Nathan Lieuwen stopped 28 shots. Leblanc brought a back-and-forth game to a close at 1:26 in OT, when Drew Schiestel found him with a short pass along the red-line and Leblanc elevated a backhand effort past Lieuwen. The Hamilton forward now has five points in his past two games. Gabriel Dumont nearly opened the scoring for the Bulldogs three minutes into the first period, when a loose puck deflected to him, unguarded, in the low slot. But his quick wrist shot eluded Lieuwen only to ring off the near post. Tarnasky was luckier at 11:22 of the period, when he scored the games first goal late on a Bulldog power play. Erik Nystrom brought the puck into the zone and weaved past a defender, only to see the puck drift off of his stick and to Tarnasky, who was planted in front of Lieuwens net. The winger did the rest, quickly sweeping the puck off the far post and past the Rochester goaltender. The goalscorer produced another moment worthy of the highlight reel as Hamilton took to the power play again in the final five minutes of the period. Tarnasky carried the puck through the middle of the ice and beat split two defenders, before his backhanded effort was saved by Lieuwen. Hamilton doubled its lead at 2:10 of the second period, capitalizing on another Rochester penalty after Alexander Sulzer was whistled for tripping. Leblanc received a pass from Duffy behind the red-line, and curled all the way out to the top of the left circle before releasing a low wrist shot that beat Lieuwen through a screen. The Americans cut their deficit in half on a man advantage of their own, after Leblanc was penalized for holding at 6:42 of the second period. Rochesters power-play unit moved the puck around the top of the zone with a series of short passes, before Sulzer found Adam in the low slot with a cross-ice pass. The speed of the play left Mayer stranded out of position, and Adam had an empty net to tap the puck into at 7:14. The Bulldogs restored their two-goal advantage at 8:17 of the period, scoring their third power-play goal of the night when Nygren allowed traffic to form in front of Lieuwen and took a heavy slapshot that beat him high to the glove side. The Americans struck back just over two minutes later, when Colton Gillies shot from the blue-line bounced off the end boards to Roy, and the forward quickly slid a wrap-around past Mayer at 10:52 of the second. The comeback was completed with five seconds to play in the period, as McNabb gathered the puck after an initial effort was blocked, and beat Mayer through the five-hole with his second wrist shot.

Thats exactly what happened. And they enjoyed every moment. Durant remained sizzling with 33 points, Serge Ibaka added 22 and the Thunder roared back from an abysmal start -- they trailed 22-4 early -- to embarrass the Miami Heat 112-95 on Wednesday night, erasing that big deficit out of the gate by outscoring the two-time defending champions by 43 points over a 33-minute span. "They were ready for us to come in and play," Durant said. "They hit some tough shots early on, a few 3s, and we didnt panic. We just tried to stay together and thats what we did.

The Thunder extended their winning streak to nine, inching them closer to Indiana in the race for the leagues best record. And the Oklahoma City bench outscored Miamis reserves 39-21, with Jeremy Lamb scoring 18 and Derek Fisher going 5 for 5 from 3-point range for his 15 points. "Theres no running away from it," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. "Other than the first eight minutes of the game they outclassed us tonight. They absolutely deserved this win."

Bosh scored 18 points and Wade added 15 for Miami. "We played well to start the game," James said. "We played well all the way until like the second quarter. From that point on they did what they want to do." Much of the buzz going into the night was about the MVP race, and how this might be the season that Durant finally catches James for the leagues top individual award. Head-to-head, they werent separated by much. Buut for just the fourth time in 17 meetings between their teams, Durant came out on top. Darius Leonard Colts Jersey.

With 6:20 left in the opening quarter, Bosh made a pair of free throws to make it 22-4. That pretty much ended the Heat highlights for the evening.

Im sure the fans got what they wanted to see with that one." Said James: "Its fun competition. Its been a while since I was able to do something like that." Fisher connected on a 3-pointer to end the quarter, pushing Oklahoma Citys margin to 16, and the Heat had no answers in the fourth. "We have some work to do," Spoelstra said.
