VAL ST. Patrick Corbin Nationals Jersey . COME, Que. -- Alex Bilodeau is afraid of where all this momentum could be taking him. Bilodeau won his third straight World Cup moguls event Sunday, edging out teammate and rival Mikael Kingsbury. A showdown at next months Winter Games between Bilodeau, the reigning Olympic champion, and Kingsbury, the defending world champion, has the Rosemere, Que., native worried about when the intensity peaks in Sochi, Russia. "I need to admit Im a bit afraid of where were heading towards," said Bilodeau. "Every race were pushing the limit, were pushing and pushing. ... "If we continue to push before the Olympics its going to be a nice show because I dont know where its going." Canada finished Sundays competition with four medals after Chloe Dufour-Lapointe and her sister Justine took first and second place, respectively, in the womens event. Bilodeau won with a score of 26.49, while Kingsbury, from Deux-Montagnes, Que., followed at 25.66. Bradley Wilson of the United States was third. Bilodeau, now four years removed from being the first Canadian to win gold on home soil, said he doesnt take the pairs success for granted with the Olympics so close. "If we continue to push each other theres a myriad of scenarios that could come down. We could both do big mistakes also and come to the back of the field but hopefully it wont come to that point," he said. "But were two pretty constant skiers and we should make it down with no mistakes, and Mikael is a very consistent skier without doing any mistakes here or there, so I need to be on top of my game." Chloe Dufour-Lapointe meanwhile maintained shes the picture of calm after the Montreal natives latest win. She took gold with a score of 23.79, while Justine Dufour-Lapointe followed at 22.51 ahead of Japans Junko Hoshino. Chloe Dufour-Lapointe is heading to her second Olympics after finishing ninth in 2010. With nothing to compete for between now and the Winter Games, she said she wont be losing sleep during the wait. "Im not nervous at all," she said. "Yeah, for sure, its the Olympics, its going to be big, but Im expecting this for my second time on the Olympics team. Every single event that I did this year I was working on the process and to be able to go to Sochi and get the best that I can do." Adrian Sanchez Nationals Jersey . With a win tonight, Buehrle will match Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka for the most wins in the majors with 11.

He adds that "Miami is something that really excites me because there is a great energy down there.BOSTON -- By the end of the Stanley Cup final, the Chicago Blackhawks and Boston Bruins seemed to have more players dealing with substantial injuries than not. Bruins centre Patrice Bergeron had a broken rib, torn cartilage and muscles in his ribs and a separated shoulder, while the Blackhawks celebrated their Cup victory after Game 6 amid a litany of problems. Bryan Bickell suffered a Grade 2 knee sprain at the end of the Western Conference final, Marian Hossa played through a bad back, Michal Handzus had hand and knee problems and Jonathan Toews got his "bell rung," according to coach Joel Quenneville. "We were pretty smooth coming into the finals," Quenneville said. "We exited the L.A. series and Bick probably shouldnt have played a game in this series. After Game 3 he looked like he was back to normal, which was big for us, and Hossa was kind of banged-up and Johnny coming into this game banged-up. And were not talking about the rest of the crew. The resiliency all year long of finding ways and the depth I think was one (thing) that made it so special for us." Handzus, 36, was the first player to receive the Cup after Toews. That place was well-earned beyond his NHL experience. "He had more issues than anybody," Quenneville said. "He had a bad hand, he had a bad knee, he had old age. He had a lot of things going on." Bickells knee problem should have sidelined him three to four weeks, said Quenneville, who only broke up his line with Toews and Conn Smythe Trrophy-winner Patrick Kane to ease pressure on the injured winger. Wilmer Difo Jersey. There was no easing up on Bergeron, who left Game 5 with injury but managed to get onto the ice for Game 6 in Boston. He said that was thanks to a lot of help from the medical staff. "Everyones banged up, everyone wants to help the team and obviously I couldnt do that in Game 5," Bergeron said. "It was mostly because they were worried about my spleen being hurt, so thats why we had to go to the hospital. But everything was fine so it was just the ribs, and the muscles, and the soft tissue. So obviously I wouldve liked to stay in it but I was going through a lot of pain." Bruins right-winger Jaromir Jagr was in and out of Game 6 with an undisclosed injury, and right-winger Nathan Horton dealt with a suspected shoulder injury all series. Defenceman Zdeno Chara was rendered ineffective as the final went on, but that was also because he was hurt. "Zdeno is one of those players that unfortunately was not 100 per cent," coach Claude Julien said. "So he battled through it." More injury information will likely come out in the coming days, but Julien wasnt willing to disclose too much after his teams elimination. "This not a time to make excuses. Theyve got injuries, too," he said. "As the series went on, talking about since the start of the Stanley Cup, we had some injuries. Its hard to keep guys out. They want to play through it, and some guys were able to do that." ' ' '
