Sabres' Houser stymies Senators with 43 saves, halts Ottawa's 2-game winning streak

Michael Houser made 43 saves in his season debut as the Buffalo Sabres downed the Ottawa Senators 3-1 on Tuesday night.

Houser is the sixth goaltender to start a game for Buffalo this season.

It was the Senators first home game since Dec. 11 and it was played without fans, something the Sabres haven’t had to do since last year.

Mark Jankowski, Dylan Cozens and Alex Tuch scored for the Sabres (12-20-7).

Drake Batherson had the lone goal for Ottawa (11-19-2), while Anton Forsberg made 30 saves in net.

The Senators had been looking for a third straight win as they returned from a two-game road trip in Western Canada.

With the game tied 1-1 the Sabres scored the go-ahead goal at the midway mark of the third period in a bizarre sequence of events.

Things started when Erik Brannstrom ran Kyle Okposo into the boards right between the benches. The hit created a reaction as players from both teams came in, but the play went on and Jankowski broke in with Ottawa’s Josh Brown trailing and beat Forsberg stick side, while most of the other players were caught watching.

Duration 1:23

While four Senators and four Sabres were involved in a scrum, play continued and Mark Jankowski took advantage, scoring what turned out to be the game-winning goal in Buffalo’s 3-1 win over Ottawa. 1:23

Tuch added some insurance for Buffalo with 40 seconds left to play, putting the puck into an empty net.

Down 1-0 in the second, the Senators tied the game with Batherson’s first power-play goal of the season. Batherson took a pass down low and while his initial shot was stopped he picked up his own rebound and lifted it over Houser.

Houser got off to a great start as he made a big save on Alex Formenton on a breakaway and then followed up with a big stop on Tim Stutzle on the rebound.

Buffalo opened the scoring midway through the period as Cozens got pushed off the puck on the rush and then picked it right back up and let a shot go that beat Forsberg glove side.

Barty works fast, cruises into Aussie third round

MELBOURNE, Australia — Top-ranked Ashleigh Barty is breezing through the Australian Open draw so far. Things could get a lot more interesting soon enough.

Barty extended her streak of service holds to 48 games and moved into the third round at Melbourne Park for the sixth consecutive year by beating 142nd-ranked qualifier Lucia Bronzetti 6-1, 6-1 in under an hour Tuesday in Rod Laver Arena.

Barty dropped just one game in her first-round match, which also took less than an hour, as she bids to become the first Australian woman since 1978 to win the country’s Grand Slam tournament.

She is already a two-time major champion, with trophies at the French Open in 2019 and Wimbledon last year.

Next up for Barty will be a matchup against another Italian, 30th-seeded Camila Giorgi, who beat Tereza Martincova 6-2, 7-6 (2). Win that, and Barty could end up in a fourth-round showdown against defending champion Naomi Osaka.

In other early second-round results on Day 3, eighth-seeded Paula Badosa moved into the third round with a 6-0, 6-3 win over Italian qualifier Martina Trevisan in Rod Laver Arena.

Badosa won the title at a Sydney tuneup tournament last week, when she put together back-to-back match wins in Australia for the first time.

Two-time Australian Open champion Victoria Azarenka beat Jil Teichmann 6-1, 6-2.

Cataclismo o catarsis

Aquellas fotos parecen viejas. Y eso que no ha pasado ni un año. Pero son de otra época. Una época feliz. En la que el Atleti sonreía abrazado a un trofeo, la Liga pasada, la segunda del Cholo. Un entrenador que hoy viaja a la bella San Sebastián en el camino a otro metal, el de la Copa. Se juega el pase a cuartos ante la Real. En su maleta, sólo piedras (sigue el partido en directo en

Escudo/Bandera Atlético

La plantilla campeona, esa en la que todos eligieron quedarse tras ganar, reforzada con Grizi, no carbura. Nada le sale. Ni en formato 4-4-2 ni en versión 5-3-2. Todo es un fiasco. De resultados, de identidad casi. En Liga, a 16 del Madrid, con una victoria en los seis últimos partidos. En Supercopa, eliminado por el Athletic. En la Champions en octavos con apuros. Eso los hechos, peor los nombres.

Oblak tan humano y en una película de terror al final de cada balón parado (diez encajados). La defensa hace aguas. Entre sanciones y lesiones, Savic y Giménez no juegan, lo hacen Felipe y Hermoso para salir cada partido peor en las fotos. El centro del campo no manda, ni crea ni destruye. Arriba Suárez deambula por un desierto y João sigue en su particular Guadiana.

Escudo/Bandera R. Sociedad

El equipo del Cholo desdeña las primeras partes y ya no sujeta los marcadores a favor. Trippier se fue. La enfermería aprieta y ahoga. Llorente y Kondogbia se unen a Griezmann. Giménez cumple en Donosti la roja en Riad. A Savic no se le forzará. Miedo a esa palabra: recaída.

Correa o Carrasco; Oyarzabal o Sorloth

Todo pesa, pero el Cholo hizo lema el Nunca dejes de creer y así viaja a Donosti. Con 15 jugadores del primer equipo (y cinco canteranos, Manu Lama entre ellos: una llamada que es ya premio a una lucha, la suya, tras nueve meses lesionado) para seguir bebiendo esta Copa que le puede dar vida. Con Vrsaljko, el último héroe, en el lateral de una defensa de cuatro, con Herrera al lado de Koke, con Cunha junto a João. Eso ha probado. Con sólo una duda, Carrasco o Correa, su Señor Lobo. Y con sus piedras haga una catarsis.

Mathew Ryan, titular de nuevo en Copa.

Pero, enfrente, Imanol. Alrededor, Anoeta, un campo donde ha perdido un 40% de veces (4 de 10). La fecha, víspera del Día de San Sebastián. Aunque sus fotos de inicio de temporada, líder, también parezcan añejas: sin victoria en dos meses en Liga, del 7 de noviembre (Osasuna) al 8 de enero (Celta). Sin Isak (esguince), que no llega, pero con Rafinha, Zubimendi y Januzaj. La duda de Imanol orbita entre Sorloth, que ya le marcó al Atleti, u Oyarzabal como ‘falso 9’. También quieren la Copa. Y que Simeone y su Atleti vivan un cataclismo. Con tamborrada.

New Coach, Same Big Goals For Cabal & Farah

The new season has just started for Juan Sebastián Cabal and Robert Farah and it already feels like change is afoot. For the first time in almost a decade, the Colombians are no longer coached by the South African Jeff Coetzee, who helped them win their first two Grand Slam titles (Wimbledon and the US Open in 2019) and climb to No. 1 in the ATP Doubles Rankings.

But what has not changed is the team’s ambitions. Under the watchful eye of the Argentine Mariano Hood, former World No. 20 in doubles (2003), Cabal and Farah have come out all guns blazing in 2022, something they made clear in this interview with before their first clash at the Australian Open against the South African Lloyd Harris and Australian Alexei Popyrin.

What were the best and worst parts of 2021?
Juan Sebastián Cabal: The good part was that in such tough circumstances because of COVID-19, we managed to remain among the best. And although we had fitness problems, we were always fighting for the tournaments. We were satisfied. The bad thing was that it was very mentally and physically difficult. Hopefully this year will be different.

Robert Farah: The best thing was that we won three ATP 500s, tournaments that you dream of winning when you’re young. They were really big events: Dubai, Barcelona and Vienna. Also, we capped off a great year at the [Nitto ATP] Finals, where we were playing well. The bad part was the pandemic, that was really hard mentally. Often we were unable to return to our country, as Colombia was on the red list, that made the year very difficult.

What are the goals for 2022?
Cabal: In the longterm, to be at the [Nitto ATP] Finals, to win Grand Slams, fight for the No. 1 spot… Our idea is to set up our schedule to fight for the big tournaments and the final rounds.

Farah: It’ll also be important to look after our health in order to be competing at 100 per cent. To go out onto court and enjoy ourselves. If we can do that, we can win a lot of matches and make ourselves dangerous again at all tournaments.

What will the new team look like for the season?
Cabal: The fitness coach is the same: Jefry Vergara, from Colombia. And the coach is Mariano Hood. In weeks when he can’t, we’ll have people we trust. We’ll also have two Argentine physios, Diego and Andrés, who will alternate weeks.

Why Mariano Hood as your new coach?
Farah: We know Mariano really well, we’ve always known that he’s a great coach. When we left things with Jeff, who we’d been with for eight years and to whom we owe so much because he had a great impact on our career, Mariano was one of the first people who came to mind and I think we’re happy to start a new chapter with him.

What do you hope for from your new coach?
Cabal: We felt that our time with the last coach had come to an end. Everything ended on good terms. He’s a great friend of ours. Now we’re hoping for a new outlook on things. We already know how good we are, what we can achieve. But maybe with a different perspective and a fresh start we can do more, fight for something new.

Juan, you’re 35, and Robert you’re 34, do you feel like veterans or still feel young?
Cabal: We’re not young. Of course, every year that passes takes its toll. But it also depends on your body, and the motivation, how much you want to play. There is life after tennis, but for now we’re still setting ourselves goals and working hard. We’re nearly veterans but our desire is still the same.

How much longer can you play elite tennis?
Farah: I’d like about three more years in elite tennis. From there, personally, I’d like to start new things in my life. But for now we’re really focussed on this season and the following ones. Hopefully we can stay healthy for the final years of our career and perform as well as possible.

You have 70 Grand Slam wins together. Are you ready to break 80 this season?
Cabal: I think so. If we do things well, we can break that barrier and maybe get even more wins. We’re working hard for that.

Where do you think you’ll win your 20th title as a team?
Cabal: We’re not losing sleep over that. The only thing is to give our all because then the results will follow. Sooner or later. Hopefully it will be in Australia.

Farah: I’d like it to come in Australia, that’s the goal.

Who are the opponents to beat this season?
Cabal: The Frenchmen [Nicolas Mahut and Pierre Hugues Herbert], the Croatians [Mate] Pavic and [Nikola] Mektic, [Ram] Salisbury and [Rajeev] Ram, [Marcel] Granollers and [Horacio] Zeballos. Together with them, we’re the most consistent, the ones that are in the fight for the titles and finals.

Farah: It won’t change that much compared to last year. Also, there is a new pair, John Peers and Filip Polasek who finished last year very well. In 2022, they’ll be dangerous. The Belgians [Sander Gille and Joran Vliegen] could be a danger, they’re playing better every year. Bruno [Soares] and Jamie [Murray]. But we know that we have the game to face any of them. If we’re focussed and enjoying the Tour, we can be very dangerous.
