power-play goal early in the third.

Henrik Stenson was understandably delighted after carding a second round 65 to move to within one stroke of leader Phil Mickelson at Royal Troon. The Swede started the round on three under and went out in 33 after four birdies in five holes between three and seven before recovering from a bogey at the ninth to complete the back nine in 32.As pleased as he was with his score, Stenson admitted that it was an efficient rather than stylish round in tough conditions. In terms of scoring it was a great round, he told Sky Sports. You can certainly play prettier golf at times but I kept it together nicely, turned the good stuff into birdies and when I was in a little bit of trouble I saved myself pretty much all the way around.It was an interesting day. It started off fairly good on the first couple of holes, not too much rain, but then the wind and rain kept on battering us a bit and it looks potentially even worse for this afternoon so Im happy with this score. Henrik Stenson is one shot off Phil Mickelson at the top of the leaderboard After a bright and largely wind-free first day, the players had to cope with rain and gusty conditions on Friday and Stenson spoke of the challenges that he was presented with. Youve got to hit more club to get to the same spots really, he explained. Prevailing wind is downwind and then youd hit some short clubs to get in position. Instead of a four or five iron it was a two iron and possibly even three woods to get to some of the spots.It was pretty decent conditions up until about six and then it really started raining and got nasty before it eased off. From nine onwards it was tough for a while and I was hanging on. I dropped one on nine but I was really happy with the birdie on 10 and the couple of pars that followed.Soren Kjeldsen also enjoyed a productive round, backing up his first round 67 with a bogey-free 68 and he believes that embracing the challenge of the less-than-ideal conditions is crucial. Soren Kjeldsen says it is hugely important to keep a positive mental attitude during miserable weather conditions It is huge when you play links golf, I enjoy that challenge, the Dane said. It makes you play golf, its not just about how youre swinging it, you have to find a way and I like that battling mentality.I made quite a few nice putts when I needed to, the one at 11 was great because I hadnt played the hole particularly well and to make that putt was very sweet.After two strong rounds, Kjeldsen is right in the mix to pick up his first major championship and he is looking forward to the weekend.Im very much into it, I couldnt be more into it really, he added. I keep working hard and focus on what I need to focus on, I cant control the other guys and what they do. Im just very happy, its been two excellent days for me and now a little bit of rest and Ill be ready for tomorrow.

Rooneys latest piece of football genius lost in the furore which now stalks David Moyes, and the man who gave the Manchester United striker his start as a 16-year old at Goodison Park back in 2002.TSN Hockey Insiders Bob McKenzie, Pierre LeBrun and Darren Dreger gathered for the latest installment of Insider Trading and the topics discussed were the Buffalo Sabres GM search, trade talk around the league, and which junior-eligible players in the NHL could be loaned to Team Canada for the World Juniors. What is the latest news coming out of Buffalo regarding the Sabres General Manager hunt? Bob McKenzie: The Buffalo Sabres have asked for permission from the Boston Bruins to talk to assistant manager Jim Benning about the vacant Sabres GM job and the permission has been granted. Im also hearing that Lafontaines profile for the job is that hes looking for young assistant GM types throughout the NHL. Weve heard Jason Botterills name in Pittsburgh, Brad Trelivings name in Phoenix, Paul Fentons name in Nashville. That might mean a guy like Rick Dudley, whos been a GM in the NHL before doesnt necessarily fit the profile of what Buffalo is currently looking for. With American Thanksgiving nearing, are you hearing any talk on the trade front? Darren Dreger: We are hearing some interesting names that are starting to surface. Two of them that come to mind are Brayden Schenn of the Phildadelphia Flyers and Michael Del Zotto of the New York Rangers. Now the Flyers arent trying to push out Schenn – they may want to push out his brother Luke – but what theyve told teams quietly is that if there is the right deal available, if they can find the right fit, then absolutely they would include Brayden Schenn in a trade scenario. And we know Paul Holmgren likes to make that big blockbuster deal. As for Del Zotto and the Rangers, hes not having a good year, playing well behind Ryan McDonagh and Marc Staal on the left side, so hes a third-pairing defenceman. He could probably embrace a change and were told that at least five or six teams have inquired about scenarios. Pierre LeBrun: I think one of those teams is the Ottawa Senators. Theyve had this mystifying start, theyve been so inconsistent and Im told one of their top priorities on the trade market between noow and the trade deadline is to find another puck-moving defenceman and Del Zotto is on that list of players on their radar.dddddddddddd But its money in, money out with the Senators with the situation with ownership. A quick update on Pekka Rinne. LeBrun: Hes going to have an MRI on his hip again next week and thats a big one for Nashville. If it comes back clear, they hang on and wait for him to come back. If it isnt, it certainly heats up trade talks for Nashville. There are five junior-eligible players in the NHL. We dont think Nathan MacKinnon will be offered to Team Canada for the World Juniors, what about the other four? McKenzie: Sean Monahan of the Calgary Flames looks like an extreme longshot but the Flames arent necessarily closing the door on that – theyll make a decision on that closer to the time it needs to be made in mid to late December. As far as Matt Dumba goes with the Minnesota Wild, I think hes the guy thats most likely to be loaned to Team Canada, but again Minnesota wont make that decision until they check their injury situation. Right now Toronto Maple Leafs defenceman Morgan Rielly looks like an extreme longshot and Tom Wilson of the Washington Capitals, even though hes playing fourth line minutes there for Adam Oates, the Capitals seem to feel that putting him on a big ice international tournament would probably interrupt his pro apprenticeship and probably not be in his best interest. Hes highly unlikely so not a lot of help on the NHL front on the horizon; Dumba seems like the most likely candidate. LeBrun: And sticking with international hockey, the Russians caused a little bit of a kerfuffle over the past week by saying “What about this Olympic roster deadline on December 31st? Wed like to name a partial roster and name the rest of the roster before the Olympics.” The NHL, NHLPA, and IIHF said, “No, nothing has changed on that front, its a hard deadline for the full roster.” Except that the IIHF council meets next week and the Russians are expected to press their case once again there.
