ANAHEIM, Calif. Cheap Ultra Boost White . -- Ryan Kesler says he turned his October goal-scoring drought into a November bonanza with the same determination and a little more luck.There was nothing lucky about his hard work on another game-winning goal for the Anaheim Ducks.Kesler scored the tiebreaking goal on a rush to the net with 3:40 to play, and Anaheim snapped the New Jersey Devils five-game winning streak with a 3-2 victory Thursday night.You get chances in a game, and its nice when you can bury them, Kesler said with a shrug. Im going to keep riding this wave for as long as I can.After struggling for long stretches of the first 50 minutes against the tough, disciplined Devils, the Ducks took the lead with determination. Jakob Silfverberg controlled the puck behind the net and centered it to Kesler, who outmuscled Travis Zajac in the slot and forced home a backhand for his team-leading eighth goal -- including six in the last six games.Hes strong, Silfverberg said of Kesler. The goal he scored tonight, I dont know how many battles he won in front of the net before he put the puck in.Rickard Rakell and Silfverberg scored 16 seconds apart in the second period to tie it for the Ducks, who took sole possession of first place in the Pacific Division standings with their fifth victory in six games. Jonathan Bernier made 27 saves for the Ducks, who have won the first two on a five-game homestand.Its tough to play against that team, said Silfverberg, who has seven points in the last four games on his line with Kesler and Andrew Cogliano. They play super-aggressive hockey and you dont get a lot of scoring chances. They controlled the first period, but we got going.The Ducks have won four straight at home overall, and theyve beaten New Jersey three straight times at Honda Center for the first time since 1995-97.Kyle Quincey had a goal and an assist for the Devils, who had been on their longest streak since February 2013. Devante Smith-Pelly also scored against his former team, and Cory Schneider stopped 20 shots in New Jerseys second stop on a four-game road trip.It was a chippy game, Schneider said. We did a lot of things we wanted to do, but a couple of breakdowns against that team, and they find a way to make you pay.While the Devils largely felt good about another road effort, they failed to earn a point for just the second time in 12 games, and their power-play drought stretched to 0 for 25 over the past two weeks.The way we played tonight we shouldve at least gotten one (point), but we didnt, Schneider said.The Devils played their second game without leading scorer Taylor Hall, who will be out for at least three weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.Smith-Pelly put New Jersey ahead with a deflection of Quinceys point shot for his second goal of a quiet season. Quincey put another long shot cleanly past Bernier 3 1/2 minutes later for his second goal of the season and his first multipoint game since Oct. 13, 2015.But moments after Rakells fifth goal in nine games trickled over the line, Silfverberg beat Schneider with a nasty wrist shot for the tying goal, his sixth of the season.Yohann Auvitu, the Devils surprising French rookie defenseman, missed his first game of the season due to an upper-body injury. New Jersey had used the same six defensemen in every game this season before Jon Merrill stepped in for Auvitu.Game notes Three Devils were recently Ducks: D Ben Lovejoy, F Kyle Palmieri and Smith-Pelly. ... Devils RW Beau Bennett is a Gardena, California, native who attended Valley Christian High School, 15 miles from Honda Center. ... Ducks F Joseph Cramarossa went to the dressing room late in the first period after colliding harshly with Rakell. Cramarossa didnt return.UP NEXTDevils: After a day off in LA, they face the Kings on Saturday afternoon.Ducks: The homestand continues Sunday when the Los Angeles Kings visit for the second Freeway Faceoff of the season. Cheap Ultra Boost China.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Cuban heavyweight Mijain Lopez once again bested Turkish rival Riza Kayaalp -- this time with an Olympic performance that put him in the company of wrestling great Alexander Karelin.Lopez beat Kayaalp 6-0 Monday at the Rio de Janeiro Games to capture his third Greco-Roman gold medal.Lopez joins Russian great Karelin and Carl Westergren of Sweden as the only wrestlers with three Olympic titles in the classic discipline.Lopez, who lost to Kayaalp in last years world finals, scored in only 15 seconds to essentially seal the match.Its just a tremendous honor because of the level that (Karelin) was at, Lopez said. Now, this is my time.Russian wrestler Davit Chakvetadze also won gold, finishing first in the 85-kilogram weight class to give Russia its second Olympic title in as many days.Though the heavyweight field was fairly deep, an Olympic rematch between Lopez and Kayaalp seemed inevitable. No one came close to threatening either one of them in the preliminaries.Lopez began his round with a win over Heike Nabi, who he also beat in the gold medal match at the London Games.In the semifinals, Lopez drew Sergey Semenoov -- a two-time junior world champion from Russia and perhaps the wrestler wholl someday replace Lopez and Kayaalp at the top of the sport. Wholesale Ultra Boost 2018. Lopez let Semenov know his time had not yet come, dispatching him 3-0. Semenov later rallied to win bronze by pinning Nabi.For me, its practically gold, Semenov said.

He flipped Kayaalp onto his back for a four-pointer only 15 seconds in and made it 5-0 less than a minute later.My strategy was to counter his efforts and go with it, Lopez said.Chakvetadze rallied from a 2-0 deficit to beat top-ranked Ukrainian Zhan Beleniuk 9-2.
