VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- It was pointed out to Vancouver Canucks coach Willie Desjardins on Saturday that his team has done some little things right lately, but he was not about to mince words.Were doing some good things, but its not good enough just to do that, Desjardins said after a practice at the University of British Columbia. We have to find ways to score.The Canucks (5-9-1) have lost 10 of their last 11 games heading into Sundays home game against the Dallas Stars (6-6-3), who have won the last 10 meetings. Despite going 1-5 on a just concluded road trip that ended with a 3-1 loss in Detroit, the Canucks outshot their opponents in four of their past six games.They have also displayed a reasonably strong defense and solid goaltending. But a rebuild-on-the-fly effort has failed to produce offensive dividends. Winger Loui Eriksson, who was signed to a six-year, $36-million contract in the offseason, has only one goal in his first 15 games as a Canuck. Meanwhile, Sven Baertschi, who was looked upon for offense after coming on strong late last season, also,has one goal.Twins Daniel and Henrik Sedin, 36, lead the team with five goals apiece. As a team, the Canucks have only scored 28 times. Accordingly, coach Desjardins, whose future has become a matter of daily debate, is refusing to blame bad luck and wants his team to be better.Youre saying that you know what you want to do and youve gotta go out and youve gotta do it, Desjardins said. I talked to this group (Saturday) morning and I said you know, what? We have more. Its not like you didnt do some good things, but we have more (to show.)More goals from a struggling power play would definitely help. The Canucks have scored on only 8.7 percent of their man-advantage opportunities. As a result, Desjardins was contemplating different power-play strategies and combinations with the exceptions being that the Sedins will retain their usual spots.But the Canucks also want to be careful with a Dallas squad that beat Calgary and Edmonton on back-to-back road games in its last two outings.Theyve got a lot of speed and thats something we could gum up, Desjardins said. Theyve got a few injuries right now, but theyre still a team, with (Tyler) Seguin and (Jamie) Benn as good as they are, where they can can capitalize quickly. And, I think that (John) Klingberg is good on the back end. They still have some real good players in that lineup.The Stars have been less potent much of the season without forwards Patrick Sharp (concussion), who could return Sunday; Jason Spezza (lower body); Ales Hemsky (hip surgery); Cody Eakin (knee); Mattias Janmark (knee); and Jiri Hudler (illness).But Canucks goaltender Ryan Miller, who will make his second consecutive start, still expects a strong showing from coach Lindy Ruffs crew.Generally, they have a lot of firepower, Miller said. I think, right now, theyre a little bit beat up on the front end. So its going to be different line combinations. But they still have some of their top scoring guys, so theyre always going to be dangerous. I imagine this theres going to be a little bit more puck pressure and pucks will get in deep a little bit more.Miller made a fantastic glove save as he prevented an empy-net goal against Detroit as he raced back to his goal after starting to skate off for an extra attacker in Detroit. The save was still a hot topic of conversation Saturday. But the usually calm netminder is finding it difficult to follow his mantra of playing within himself as the Canucks struggle.Its not easy, Miller said. Its definitely frustrating. I feel like Ive had nights where Ive played good hockey and nights when Ive made a couple of (key) saves. But you feel like, over the course of the season, those games get kind of spread out where you cant get away with closes losses. Youre not going to get away with much right now.The Stars got away with a lot under adverse conditions in Alberta. Before pulling off the back-to-back triumphs in Calgary and Edmonton, they had lost six of seven games.The Stars scored seven goals against the Oilers and Flames while goaltender Kari Lehtonen posted both wins.I think were finding defense, Seguin told reporters in Edmonton. Were finding ways to defend. With the guys out of the lineup, thats a lot of speed and a lot of goal scoring. Our main focus and discussions have been how were going to defend.Former Canucks defenceman Dan Hamhuis has been helping out on the back end after signing as a free agent in the offseason. Hamhuis, a Smithers, B.C., native who played six seasons in Vancouver, plays his first game against his old team Sunday.Hamhuis had a reunion with Desjardins and some other Canucks before the Stars worked out at UBC on Saturday.Dan is such a good individual, good person, Desjardins said. Every game, he played hard. I think he liked being a Canuck. He was great in the community, so theres just lots of good things to say about him. It was pretty amazing last year. He came back from that bad (facial) injury and played some of his best hockey. Hes always a character guy in the (dressing) room.It remains to be seen how soon the Canucks will show some character. Captain Henrik Sedin said losing has put a strain on the entire organization, but the team can not afford to have a letdown -- which is common -- in the first game back from a long road trip.To have a good home stand here puts us right back into the (playoff) race, Sedin said. Rode Duivels Wk 2018 .Y. -- Leading 3-0 with only 11:25 left, the Colorado Avalanche committed a seemingly meaningless penalty to give the New York Islanders a power play. Axel Witsel 2018 . -- There were so many positives from the Orlando Magics first victory of the season that it was hard for coach Jacque Vaughn to stop praising his players. http://www.voetbalshirtwinkelbelgie.be/voetbalshirt-thibaut-courtois.html .

HOUSTON -- Houston Texans players are being advised by the team not to leave the hotel and not to order room service during their trip to Mexico City for Monday nights game against the Oakland Raiders.The game is part of the NFLs international series and the first NFL game in Mexico City since 2005.The Associated Press was given a look at a memo distributed to the team on Wednesday that included a page of information concerning the trip to Mexico, including those two rules.A section of the memo under the heading safety had a bullet point with: DO NOT leave the hotel. It was followed by a line advising players to leave all expensive jewelry at home, not to bring large sums of money and not to use ATMs.A second section titled health and performance has basic tips like drinking only bottled water and avoiding the consumption of ice. It also warned: Eat all meals in the meal room. DO NOT order room service and DO NOT eat outside of the team meal room.The precautions the Texans have provided players are not uncommon for any foreigners traveling to Mexico. Executives visiting the city for business are often given the same warnings from their companies to avoid leaving their hotels without ssecurity.dddddddddddd.The rule about room service could be related to a memo the NFL sent to its players earlier this year warning that some meat produced in China and Mexico may be contaminated with clenbuterol, a banned steroid. That memo, sent by the league office, said that consuming large quantities of meat while visiting those countries may result in a positive test for clenbuterol. The memo told the players to please take caution if you decide to consume meat, and understand that you do so at your own risk.Clenbuterol has been banned in Mexico as a growth enhancer for cattle but is suspected to still be in use there.The Raiders did not receive such a memo, but several players said they would not eat room service while in Mexico.I always bring my own food anyway, Oakland defensive tackle Dan Williams said. Im on a strict diet so I have to watch what I eat. No room service for me.
