An experienced group of Hollywood screenwriters couldnt have scripted the high drama that unfolded on the ice in Winnipeg last Tuesday night. Ramon Humber Jersey . On an evening when the hometown Jets were playing a single home game in between road trips, the local squad turned in their most lopsided and convincing victory of the season, scoring a season-high in goals en route to an 8-2 mauling of the upstart Florida Panthers. It started with a pair of goals by forward Mathieu Perrault and eventually turned into a career night for the 27-year-old when he tallied four on the evening. Perreault, a product of Drummondville, Quebec is one of three players to score four times in a single game this month alone. Initially, David Backes of the St. Louis Blues did it in Arizona prior to Perreaults special night and late last week, Kyle Okposo of the Islanders joined them with a career-night, four-goal effort against Pittsburgh. But as Perreault was assembling his memorable night – which included a delay in the contest following his third goal that started a rain of hats from the stands to the ice – he nearly brought the roof down when he was denied on a breakaway for a fifth goal in the game by former Jets netminder Al Montoya, who relieved starter Roberto Luongo just under seven minutes into the second period. It was one of those nights, said Perreault, who once before scored four times in the American Hockey League with the Hershey Bears. But one that was obviously a lot of fun. Playing more than just a cameo role in the theatre of hockey entertainment in the game was defenceman Dustin Byfuglien, who tallied three points and two goals in the onslaught. His efforts only helped to set-up the encore of the night at the final buzzer. For the Jets, the win was about two points and another step toward the post-season for the first time since the club landed in Winnipeg four years ago. But it also marked the 500th career NHL win for head coach Paul Maurice. He joined an elite fraternity in reaching that milestone and became the second youngest coach to 500 behind the legendary Scotty Bowman. Following the game, Maurice was humble but did share in thanking influential people in his career like Hartford/Carolina owner Peter Karmanos, the man that gave Maurice his first head coaching job in the NHL at the age of 28. He also thanked Jim Rutherford, the GM of the Pittsburgh Penguins, who for many years held the same position with the Hurricanes organization while Maurice was its bench boss. When the final buzzer sounded before another sellout crowd in the provincial capital, the emotions of the night continued past Tuesday. The Jets have now won four straight games since and Maurice was honoured with a standing ovation during Sundays victory over Arizona by yet another sellout crowd at the MTS Centre. I got a lot of nice calls and texts from people that have been a big part of your hockey life, said Maurice, who will turn 48 later this month. That kind of reconnection was great. Ive been very lucky and fortunate to work with some really good people. It was an evening that wont soon be forgotten by Winnipeg fans. In fact, it might have been worthy of at least an Oscar nomination or considered by the Academy. Simply put, the thespian skill displayed in all areas of what transpired last week are likely worthy of some sort of an award, or perhaps a sequel to consider. And with the way the club is playing for and under Maurice this season, it might not take very long to write. NOTES: Like them or not, the shootout is still part of an NHL game and that wont likely change for the foreseeable future, although the league is considering some alterations to the overtime period next season to reduce the frequency of shootouts in the game. Either way, both Buffalo and the New York Islanders might not want anything to change on that front as both are 6-1 in shootouts this season. Detroit might have a different perspective on the matter, however, with a 1-7 record... To date, there have been 21 penalty shots taken in the NHL this season, of which seven goals have been scored. The Jets have yet to be awarded a penalty shot this season nor assessed one against... Winnipeg has been shorthanded a league-leading 193 times this season, but find themselves in the Top 10 in penalty kill percentage... Winnipegs road record is a league-best 14-5-5... Both Andrew Ladd and Bryan Little are on pace for 30-goal and 60-point plus seasons. Little also has the best shooting percentage on the team, scoring nearly 20.7 per cent of the time he directs a shot at an opposition net. Meanwhile, Ladd has six power play and four game-winning goals - both team bests. Dion Dawkins Jersey . - Quarterback Brady Quinn says he has been released by the Miami Dolphins. Micah Hyde Jersey .

Patton was placed on the restricted list testing positive for a banned amphetamine. Patton took Adderall, a drug commonly used to combat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, late in the 2013 season and then was given a random drug test.AUCKLAND, New Zealand -- Nate Marquardt tapped out James Te Huna in the first round of their main-event bout on Saturday at "UFC Fight Night: Te Huna vs. Marquardt," New Zealands first UFC card. Te Huna, who in 2010 became the UFCs first New Zealander, thrilled the crowd with his walk-in, which featured Maori warriors performing a traditional haka war dance. The energy carried into the cage, as both Te Huna and Marquardt started in rapid fashion. But after a few big exchanges on the feet, the end would come on the floor. Battling in the clinch against the cage, Marqaurdt (33-13-2) threw Te Huna (16-8) to the canvas and moved immediately into mount. When Te Huna rolled to escape, Marquardt went to the back and then slipped off to the side, trapping the arm and extending it to earn a submission win with 26 seconds left in the opening round. "An armbar was not part of my plan," said Marquardt. "It just sort of happened." The nights heavyweight co-feature was a little light on action, but Jared Rosholt (11-1) picked up a one-sided decision win over Australian fan-favourite Soa Palelei (21-4). It was Rosholts wrestling pedigree that earned him the win, utilizing a grinding grappling attack to bring Palelei repeatedly to the floor and preventing him from really ever launching any sort of attack. The crowd often booed the slow-paced fight, but at the end of 15 minutes, it was clear Rosholt had done enough to win the fight, and he was awarded the victory with three scores of 30-27. "I was a little disappointed with that win," Rosholt admitted. "I had a vision to dominate, which I did, but not in the fashion I wanted. "My last few fights have gone the distance, which is disappointing but proves that I have the conditioning, which is definitely an advantage at this weight class. John Miller Jersey. " In a grappling-heavy featherweight matchup, Charles Oliveira (18-4) scored an impressive submission win over fellow jiu-jitsu ace Hatsu Hioki (27-8-2). The entertaining matchup saw both men transition and sweep to dominant positions on the floor while seeking submission opportunities. Multiple attempts came from both men, but it was a modified guillotine choke in the second round that sealed the victory for Oliveira. Trapped in the hold, Hioki was forced to tap out for the first time in his career. "My opponent tonight was very tough and challenging," Oliveira admitted after the fight. "I studied all of his fights and knew he would be tough. "I know we are in New Zealand, but you always hear Brazilians in the crowd. They are the most passionate fight fans and always make lot of noise. Tonight, they inspired me to take the win." In the nights first main-card matchup, New Zealand native Robert Whittaker (13-4) picked up an impressive decision win over fellow welterweight Mike Rhodes (6-3). Whittaker, the former winner of "The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes," was the better striker throughout the three-round affair, using crisp boxing to pick apart his opponent with a sharp jab and powerful right hand. Rhodes was a game opponent, offering counters until the end and never seeming to slow, but Whittakers relentless attack earned him all three rounds, and he was awarded an unanimous-decision win with scores of 30-27 across the board. "The game plan was to throw as many weapons at my opponent as possible," Whittaker said after the win. "Hats off to Mike -- he gave a lot and definitely took a lot of shots. I like to think I punch hard, so props to him to keep on going."
