TORONTO -- Its two points in the standings but it means much more than that to Kevin Glenn and the Calgary Stampeders. Cheap Tom Brady Jersey . Glenn threw two first-half TD passes before leaving for precautionary reasons as injury-plagued Calgary beat the Toronto Argonauts 35-14 on Friday night in a rematch of last years Grey Cup game. The Stampeders (6-2) won despite missing veteran slotback Nik Lewis (fractured fibula), receiver Maurice Price (ankle), offensive lineman Dimitri Tsoumpas (concussion) and running back Jon Cornish (thigh contusion). "It shows a lot about our character and how well we prepare, how we believe in each other," Glenn said. "Your star running back and receiver go down and we still have faith and confidence in the guy whos going to step up and play next. "We all believe in each other, its really a good team atmosphere and I think that carries over on the field." Glenn, starting with incumbent Drew Tate (arm) out, suffered a head injury at 1:06 of the fourth quarter after being taken down by Toronto tackle Khalif Mitchell. Glenn left as per the CFLs concussion protocol but said afterwards he was OK. "I had a little headache but its gone and I feel fine," he said. "I remembered the play and everything that happened so it was more so just a precaution. "This stuff is serious so you have to be cautious when it happens." Third-stringer Bo Levi Mitchell took over and scored on an 11-yard run at 4:04 to put Calgary ahead 29-14, set up by Jonathan Hefneys 36-yard return of Chad Owens fumble. Glenn threw second-quarter TD passes to Marquay McDaniel and Tim Hawthorne to stake Calgary to a 21-14 half-time lead after Toronto (5-3) lost starter Ricky Ray. Ray suffered a shoulder injury at 8:41 of the first and was replaced by sophomore Zach Collaros after being hit by Charleston Hughes. Ray will be evaluated Saturday. "Its tough to see your starting quarterback go down but you dont have time to feel for Ricky," Argos coach Scott Milanovich said. "Thats the job of the backup quarterback. "Its never easy to come off the bench with no reps, especially on a short week. Their guy (Mitchell) had to do the same thing." Ray completed his first five passes before a Rogers Centre gathering of 21,157, including a 19-yard TD strike to Jason Barnes at 5:10 to open the scoring. Ray, who guided Toronto past Calgary 35-22 in the 100th Grey Cup game last November at Rogers Centre, capped an eight-play, 65-yard march set up by Cleyon Laings recovery of McDaniels fumble following a 29-yard reception on the games first offensive play. Ray returned to Torontos bench in the third and wasnt wearing a shoulder harness. Ray said afterwards he didnt think he suffered a shoulder separation and was held out for precautionary reasons. Ray came in having completed 64-of-73 passes (87.7 per cent) for 851 yards and eight touchdowns over his three previous starts. He was the CFLs offensive player of the week after finishing 30-of-35 passing for 413 yards and three TDs in a 36-33 home win over Edmonton on Sunday. Collaros led Toronto past B.C. 38-12 on July 30 when Ray had a knee injury but couldnt duplicate that feat Friday, finishing 16-of-26 passing for 221 yards and an interception, the Argos first this season. "We felt we couldve won regardless of losing Ricky," said Barnes, who had five catches for 106 yards and a TD. "We have a specific package with Zach and he knows what to do. "We just couldnt extend any long drives and they outplayed us." Calgary head coach/general manager John Hufnagel had nothing but praise for his club. "We held a very high-scoring offence to 14 points, thats pretty good," he said. "I know theyre missing their starting quarterback but so are we. "Im very proud of this football team just because of what theyve had to contend with up to this point. They had full confidence if they played their game that they had a chance to win the game and thats what they did." Glenn finished 14-of-20 passing for 228 yards and the two TDs. Jonathan Williams and Matt Walter combined for 138 yards rushing in place of Cornish, the 2012 CFL rushing leader whos second this year with 749 yards. Williams, a former practice roster player, had 82 yards on 18 carries while Walter added 56 yards on 10 carries. "It was like, Jon Cornish who? Glenn said with a chuckle. "They both took advantage of opportunities. "Jon being a guy who was on the practice roster and hadnt suited up since preseason coming in here and doing the kind of things he was doing, everyone on the team had confidence in him. Now the rest of the CFL, the rest of Canada has seen what he can do." Calgary earned its fifth straight win over an East Division team and beat Toronto for the first time in six regular-season meetings. Kicker Rene Paredes booted three field goals but had his CFL record-streak end at 39 straight when he missed from 22 yards in the fourth for a single. Rene also had three converts while the other points came on two safeties. Barnes and Curtis Steele had Torontos touchdowns. Noel Prefontaine added the converts.

Im coming home, Im coming home.Coming off of a shootout loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs on a controversial goal on Saturday, the Ottawa Senators find themselves visiting a club still dealing with a slightly more embarrassing goal. Los Angeles Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick didnt hide his frustrations following his clubs most recent loss and should get a chance to rebound on Wednesday night as the Kings host the Senators. Quick, a former Conn Smythe Trophy winner and Vezina Trophy nominee, had a forgettable night on Monday in Los Angeles home opener versus the New York Rangers. With his club down just a single goal and on a power play, he misplayed a clear by New Yorks Ryan McDonagh that resulted in a blooper goal for the Rangers. McDonagh sent the puck down the length of the ice off the boards. Quick came out to his left to play the puck and dropped his stick in the process. He then attempted to stop the puck with his blocker, but the disc skipped off his equipment and into the net 4:39 into the third frame and the Kings went on to lose 3-1. Asked his thought process on the play afterward, Quick responded softly, "Play 60 minutes -- you try to stop the puck for your teammates, thats the thought process. Everybody gives up bad goals and its part of the game." Further pressed on what happened, Quick appeared to grow frustrated. "You guys are writing a story on that one goal? The stick fell out of my hand. I tried to stop it with my blocker, it hit my blocker," he said. Quick ended with 25 saves and Jake Muzzin had the only goal for the Kings, who have lost two straight after opening the season with a victory and were credited with 17 giveaways as a team. "I think theres some execution issues when players have pucks on their stick and give it to the other team," noted Kings head coach Darryl Sutter after saying he wasnt concerned with the teams effort. Ottawa had its issues in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Leafs on the weekend as the club failed to hold a two-goal leaad, giving up a score late in the second period before yielding the tying marker with 5:52 to go in regulation. Signed Michael Jordan Jersey. . Toronto then got goals from Mason Raymond and Tyler Bozak in the shootout, while Milan Michalek and Jason Spezza had their tries stopped. Spezza will not to be in the Senators lineup tonight as he continues to deal with a groin injury. Raymond opened the shootout with a spin-o-rama goal on Craig Anderson, a play that Sens head coach Paul MacLean feels should be illegal. "I think its a very unfair play for the goaltender for the guy to come in and blow snow on him," MacLean said. "To me he came to a full stop and the puck went backwards and came forwards, but thats me. Im only a fisherman from Nova Scotia, so I dont know nothin about nothin." Kyle Turris had a goal and two assists, while Anderson made 38 saves for Ottawa, which had opened its season with a 1-0 victory over Buffalo last Friday. Cory Conacher, Jared Cowen and Jason Spezza all added goals. Spezza is not expected to be in the Senators lineup as he continues to deal with a groin injury. The Sens are beginning the season with a six-game road trip and are set to open the western part of the trek. They are slated to visit San Jose, Anaheim and Phoenix following tonights game. "We need to get our group in practice," MacLean said of fixing the mistakes from Saturdays loss. "Well have that opportunity when we go out west and were going to take advantage of it. The good thing is we took three of four points on the road (so far) and weve been able to score enough to win games. Weve got to keep going." The Kings notched a 4-1 win over the Senators at home when the clubs last met on Jan. 23, 2012, with Quick stopping 27 shots. Los Angeles has won four of the past five meetings overall and is 5-0-0 with a tie in its last six at home in this series. The Kings have outscored Ottawa 20-8 during that span in L.A. ' ' '
