ANAHEIM, Calif. Justin Watson Jersey . -- Derek Ryan waited longer than most NHL players for his chance. Now, nearing 30 years old, hes making the most of it.Ryan scored twice, Cam Ward made 21 saves and the Carolina Hurricanes beat the Los Angeles Kings 3-1 on Thursday night.Ryan had his first multigoal performance in 20 NHL games. A fixture in the lineup since being called up from the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL on Nov. 11, Ryan has six points in the last seven games.Pretty remarkable. Hard to even put it into words, Ryan said. Its one of those nights where youll remember it.Once considered undersized and a step too slow for the NHL, the journeyman from Spokane, Washington, who will turn 30 on Dec. 29, has finally proved that he can play at this level after years of playing in the minor leagues and in Europe.I dont think its just tonight thats proven that, Ryan said. I think Ive tried to prove that through the early part of this season and even last year, in the games that I played here. But its nice to get those goals and feel like I can contribute at a high level in this league.Brock McGinn also scored for Carolina.Drew Doughty scored for the Kings and Jeff Zatkoff made 15 saves in his first 60-minute performance of the season.Andrej Nestrasil fed Ryan for the first score of the game with 2:09 left in the first. With Kings defensemen Alec Martinez and Jake Muzzin on the same man, Nestrasil found Ryan all alone, and he broke away for the backhand around Zatkoff.Ryan made it 2-0 at 13:13 in the second period, finishing off an impressive passing sequence with for a short-handed goal. After breaking into a 2-on-1, Ryan sent a no-look backhand pass around defenseman Drew Doughty to McGinn, and McGinn sent the puck under a diving Doughty back to Ryan, who banked it off the near post.Weve done that a couple times together in Charlotte, Ryan said. I felt some pressure from Doughty there and I tried to get it over to him behind my back. I was kind of expecting him to shoot it, but he ended up putting it right on my tape for a wide open net.Probably one of those goals that my family will watch for a while.It appears as though his family get to watch him in the NHL for a little longer, as hes impressed the Carolina coaching staff with his work ethic and playmaking abilities.Its a good story, Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. Hes got a great hockey mind, hes got elite vision and he makes plays.McGinn sniped one top-shelf over Zatkoff 4:20 into the third period to make it 3-0.Doughtys goal closed the scoring at 12:50 in the third period.The Kings failed to generate much offense in a somewhat lackluster performance. Kings coach Darryl Sutter juggled the lines when he saw his top players underperforming, but a three-goal hole proved too deep to climb out of in the third period.I dont think our top guys were very sharp, and they didnt have any scoring chances, Sutter said. Our top guys were not very efficient out there maximizing what their god gave them.Game notes Doughty turned 27 on Thursday. ... Zatkoffs start was his first since Nov. 11. ... Kings C Andy Andreoff, RW Devin Setoguchi and D Tom Gilbert were healthy scratches. ... Hurricanes C Elias Lindholm missed his fourth straight game with a lower-body injury. ... Hurricanes D Klas Dahlbeck and Ryan Murphy were healthy scratches.UP NEXTHurricanes: End a three-game California trip in San Jose on Saturday night.Kings: Host Ottawa in a Saturday matinee. Vita Vea Jersey . -- San Francisco 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks was fined $15,570 by the NFL on Wednesday for his hit on Saints quarterback Drew Brees last Sunday. Authentic Buccaneers Jerseys . Datsyuk will miss Tuesdays game against New Jersey and could be sidelined longer, while Cleary will likely miss at least the next three games. Its been an injury-plagued season for Datsyuk, who has suited up for just 39 games. http://www.authenticbuccaneersshopnfl.com/alex-cappa-jersey/ . Despite dominating possession, Schalke needed an own goal from Nicolas Hoefler for the breakthrough a minute before the interval. The Freiburg midfielder misjudged Jefferson Farfans corner and bundled the ball into his own net. NEW YORK -- Australian star Penny Taylor is calling it a career.The 35-year-old told The Associated Press that she would retire from playing basketball at the end of the WNBA season. She helped lead the Phoenix Mercury to three WNBA titles and guided Australia to a world championship in 2006.My focus is on the Olympics, but definitely its my last year, Taylor said. Worked really hard to get back and still be good. I want to go out on a good note. My health is something I really had to work hard at, and to be fit and stay out on the floor, Ive done that really well. For me, its the right time.Taylor was able to avoid injuries early in a playing career that started when she was 15. Lately, her body has been breaking down a bit, starting with a torn ACL that forced her to miss the 2012 Olympics and 15 months of playing time. This season, she has been dealing with hip issues that caused her to miss the final few games of the WNBA season before the Olympic break.There is a time when you have to retire. I want to retire when Im still good, she said Friday night. I nearly had it all taken away from me. I want to make that decision and still want to be wanted. I still feel like Im still contributing out there.The one thing missing from Taylors impressive basketball résumé is an Olympic gold medal. She was the MVP of the 2006 world championship in Brazil.When you talk about the Mount Rushmore of basketball, if you had one for the world, shed probably be the first person on there, said Mercury teammate Diana Taurasi. Shes just done so much for Australian basketball, leading them to a world championship, putting them in a position every year to win a medal. She holds that close to her heart.Taurasi also was quick to point out that Taylor was a trailblazer for other Australians to be able to play in Europe and make a living. Taylor played in Turkey and Russia.She opened so many doors for everyone in that country to go to Europe, Taurasi said. She maade it OK to leave Australia when no one left to play overseas. Carlton Davis Jersey. What she did in the WNBA, if theres a five you pick to go win a game, theres no one I pick over Penny.Taylor was selected 11th in the 2001 WNBA draft by the Cleveland Rockers. When that team folded in 2003, she was picked up by the Mercury and helped them win titles in 2007, 2009 and 2014.Were the last two from our class, said Indiana Fever forward Tamika Catchings, who was drafted third in 2001 and also will retire at the end of this season. Weve had some really good battles. When I think of Penny, I think of Game 5 of the 2009 WNBA championship, how clutch she was.Taylor has averaged 13.3 points in her 13-year WNBA career.Penny is one of those players that at times gets overlooked, said Sue Bird of the Seattle Storm. It might be the whole Australian playing in the WNBA at times. I dont know why she wasnt in the top 20. Look at Pennys career and I think its a no-brainer for her to be on that team. What makes her game so difficult is her ability to score and put pressure on your defense at all times.Taylor helped Australia win silver medals in the 2004 and 2008 Olympics, and she said she would love to see that stage of her career end with a gold in Rio. She hopes to enter the coaching ranks after the WNBA season ends.Ive gotten to the point where Im seeing it more as a coach these days, Taylor said. Its the natural progression over the last few years anyway. Playing for Sandy [Brondello], I really admire her and the way she sees the game. Id like to continue learning from her.Taylor smiled when asked if she would like to be on the sideline for Australia at the 2018 world championship in Spain or the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.Who knows, thats so far away, she said. Id like to coach. I enjoy it. I love the game, love seeing it played well.
