.Hoffman made it 3-1 at 2:06 of the t

SURREY, B.C. - B.C. Lions general manager Wally Buono never saw it coming.Head coach Mike Benevides called the performance very, very disturbing.A little more than 24 hours after the Montreal Alouettes embarrassed the Lions 50-17 in the CFLs East Division semifinal, Buono and Benevides met the media on Monday to begin the autopsy on a season that started with the promise of another Grey Cup in their backyard and ended with a resounding thud.Was I in a state of shock (Sunday)? Yes, said Buono, choosing his words carefully. Would I ever would have imagined that would have occurred? No.What did I learn about our football club? I learned the fact that were not good enough and I learned the fact we have to do something about it.As was the case throughout much of 2014, B.C.s offence was unable to get anything going against Montreal, which will take on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in the East final on Sunday.I was just so confident that we were going to go out and really play well and win a tough, close game on the road, said Buono. This is devastating. If its not devastating then you werent committed, you werent 100 per cent in.Kevin Glenn, who started 18 of the clubs 19 games this season in place of the injured Travis Lulay, was completely ineffective against the Alouettes, throwing for just 64 yards and two interceptions before getting the hook.When you have that kind of loss theres going to be a lot said and a lot of attention, and rightly so, said Benevides. To lose in that manner is very, very disturbing and certainly disappointing and all the adjectives you could come up with.In his three years as head coach of the Lions, Benevides has a record of 33 wins and 21 losses, but is 0 for 3 in playoff games. He was promoted from defensive co-ordinator to head coach after Buono moved into the front office on a full-time basis following the Lions Grey Cup victory in 2011.When asked if Benevides would be back in 2015, Buono responded with: Are any of us going to be back?Benevides said job security wasnt a concern, but added the 9-9 record and the crossover playoff spot wasnt good enough.Theres no doubt this business is about winning and Im clearly aware where thats at, he said. When I look at it, my goal is always to find a way to improve and get better and thats still where my focus is. But Im clearly aware of where were at — very disappointed.The Lions dealt with a number of injuries on offence throughout 2014. Lulay played just one game, running back Andrew Harris and wide receiver Courtney Taylor were lost for the season, and the offensive line was beat up for long stretches.Despite those losses and a defence that had played well for much of the season, but also gave up 70 points and more than 1,000 yards over the last two weeks of the regular season, Buono said he was already making plans to face Hamilton with a shot at the Grey Cup on the line.Instead, the players will meet on Tuesday for a final time before cleaning out their lockers.That team should have been good enough to execute better (against Montreal), said Buono. That team should have been good enough to be able to have a very competitive game. At the end of it ... they didnt.I think they were well prepared. Montreal didnt surprise me. They didnt surprise me in what they did, they just executed it better.The Lions will have to make a decision on what to do with Lulay and whether or not it can count on him to be healthy after he re-injured his surgically repaired shoulder in his only start of the season.The quarterback position of any team is critical, said Buono. Travis is the kind of guy that I believe you should be willing to not make a quick decision (with).B.C. finished fifth in total offence with 353.1 yards per game, but was just seventh in the passing attack (232.4 yards per game) and fourth in rushing (102.1 yards per game)Glenn — who was acquired from the Ottawa Redblacks at the draft as an insurance policy — finished second in the CFL behind Ricky Ray with 3,918 passing yards to go along with 17 touchdowns.But he also threw 17 interceptions — plus two more in the playoff debacle — and never really looked comfortable, often making critical mistakes in the red zone.Im disappointed for (Glenn) because I have a tremendous amount of respect for him, Benevides said of the impending free agent. Kevins been a soldier for 14 years. Hes won a lot of football games.Hes a heck of a warrior — a character guy.The Lions had point totals of 17, 16, 16, 9, 7, 7, 6 and 3 during the regular season, going just 1-7 in those games, which has led to questions about first-year offensive co-ordinator Khari Jones job security.Neither Benevides or Buono elaborate on the future of any players or coaches on Monday.I feel good about our roster, said Benevides. Its like anything else, its a matter of getting the group together, working hard in the off-season and coming up with a vision of who we need to be.We overcame some challenges and other ones we did not.A former player and coach, Buono said the blowout loss in Montreal didnt hurt more than any other, even with the Grey Cup set for B.C. Place Stadium in less than two weeks, a game the Lions will now watch like everyone else.The hollowness, the emptiness always feels the same, he said. This is my 42nd year in the Canadian Football League and Ive had seven happy endings.The game was very, very disappointing. I dont think the score is relative to the disappointment. I guess the score is relative to the embarrassment, to the anger, but not to the disappointment. Shea Theodore Jersey . Felix Pie had an RBI double earlier in the inning, as Baltimore rallied for three runs to overcome a 3-2 deficit. J.J. Hardy had two hits and Matt Wieters chipped in with an RBI double for the Orioles, who pushed their winning streak to three games. Nate Schmidt Jersey . PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.goldenknightsnhlshop.com/der … ersey-c-4/. -- Sami Salo joked that as the shootout went on and on, one thing went through his mind: "Youve got to tie up your skates. Jason Garrison Jersey . Pospisil, whose season-ending goal is to improve his ATP Tour ranking enough to qualify for one of the 32 seedings at Januarys Australian Open, dominated Karlovic in 59 minutes. The world No. 40 never faced a break point and limited the big mans threatening ace count to a mere eight, while striking five key aces of his own. Erik Haula Jersey . -- Ben Bishop had a milestone game against one of the NHLs greatest goalies.OTTAWA - Some nights are just more fun — and this was one of them for Craig Anderson.The Ottawa Senators goaltender made 34 saves to blank the Minnesota Wild 3-0 Thursday night to pick up his second shutout of the season and 28th of his career.Anderson, who earned the win Tuesday against Detroit as well, has looked relaxed of late and was often seen laughing and smiling after whistles as he spoke with teammates.Its easier to smile when youre winning by three goals, said Anderson. When things are going well and youre winning (its fun). The team just seemed to be throwing a lot of pucks at the net and you get a lot of whistles and freebie shots.The Senators (7-3-2) got offensive contributions from Mike Hoffman, who scored twice, and Clarke MacArthur.Niklas Backstrom made 14 saves in the loss for Minnesota (7-5-0).The Senators remain the only team in the NHL without a regulation loss on home ice — which is impressive considering how much Ottawa struggled on home ice last season. The Senators are 4-0-2 on home ice.We definitely have more confidence at home, said MacArthur. Whether were feeding off the crowd or were making good plays. Were playing the way we should play at home and winning games at home is going to be big for down the stretch.Once again the Senators got some big contributions from its kid line — the trio of Hoffman, Mark Stone and Curtis Lazar.Shh dont tell anybody, joked Senators head coach Paul MacLean when asked about the lines success. I thought again they provided a lot of energy and obviously they provided offense and lets just keep putting them out there.The young line enjoys playing together and has been one of Ottawas most consistent since being formed late last week.Since game one we feel like we clicked and we feel good playing with each other, said Hoffman. Moving forward here we want to continue to improve and obviously the chemistry is there and I dont think teams really expect it too much so we kind of catch them a little bit.The Wild have outshot their opponents in all 12 of their games this season, but have lost their past two.Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo said not much should be made of that stat.I think that our team game gives us a chance to do that, said Yeo. I do feel that there are some guys that are going right now and I do know that there are some other guys who could give us more.dddddddddddd I feel like there are some guys that are doing the minimum, the minimum as far as playing the system. Youve got to do those things that are expected of everybody, but then youve got to bring a little something extra on top of that and I think thats one thing thats missing right now.Hoffman made it 3-1 at 2:06 of the third period with his second goal of the night in front of 16,867 at Canadian Tire Place. Stone, who extended his point streak (2-3) to five games, found Hoffman all alone and he fired a shot that easily beat Backstrom.Despite just four shots on goal in the second the Senators managed to score on two of them.MacArthur scored his team-leading seventh of the season on the power play at 2:23 to open the scoring. Erik Karlsson found Bobby Ryan down low and he made a quick pass to MacArthur, who beat Backstrom short side from just outside the crease.Just over two minutes later Ottawa made it 2-0 as Backstrom allowed Hoffmans shot to trickle through his pads.The Wild had a number of chances, but Anderson was unbeatable. The Senators goaltender made two huge saves on the same power play, Jason Zucker hit the post on what would have been a sure goal and then Anderson made a glove save on Thomas Vanek.Andy played great for us, said MacArthur. We tried to give him a couple, but he was there to make some good saves in the second and in the third too he made a couple great saves.Anderson was just as good in the first period when the Senators were outshot 9-5.Ottawa had two great chances to open the scoring as it had back-to-back power plays, but was unable to register a single shot on goal on either opportunity.Notes: The Senators will be without D Marc Methot (back, indefinite) and D Chris Phillips (lower body, day-to-day). RW Erik Condra and LW Colin Greening were healthy scratches for Ottawa. The Wild were without LW Zach Parise (lower body, day-to-day), LW Matt Cooke (lower body, indefinite), D Jared Spurgeon (shoulder, indefinite), D Keith Ballard (flu, indefinite). D Jonathan Blum was a healthy scratch. RW Justin Fontaine celebrates his 27th birthday Thursday.
