TORONTO -- Ryan Nelsen has been exactly where his players are, with several games to go in a disappointing season and seemingly nothing left to play for. "You feel like youre in this kind of limbo," said the Toronto FC coach and former longtime defender in Englands Premier League. "But in saying that you always take pride in your work and you always take pride in what you do." Toronto (4-14-11) hosts Sporting Kansas City (13-9-6) on Saturday, the first game since Nelsens squad was mathematically eliminated from MLS playoff contention, and the first of five games left in yet another season of dashed hopes. But Nelsen said his players still have something to prove as Torontos seventh season without a playoff appearance winds down. "Thats the time when everybody is watching and everybody is testing you," Nelsen said. "Its kind of easy to play in front of big crowds or in big games, but the real determining factor is away from home, small crowd, when no-one seems to be watching, thats really the test of character. "I learn more about them now than when were right amongst it next year." Torontos beleaguered team looks to end a seven-game winless streak Saturday, but Nelsen admitted there is the danger of players losing focus now that any glimmer of post-season hopes has officially been extinguished. "But I think the players see whats going on, they know whats around the corner and they all want to be a part of it," Nelsen said. "And they know by losing their focus, all that will be a backwards step towards where we want to go." The team made another major move Friday in hopes of improving its future fortunes, introducing Tim Bezbatchenko as its new general manager. At the other end of the MLS standings, meanwhile, a victory for Sporting KC will move the club even with the New York Red Bulls at the top of the Eastern Conference. New York plays FC Dallas on Sunday. Toronto will once again be dealing with injury concerns. Striker Robert Earnshaw will likely sit out the game with a hamstring injury, while midfielder Matias Laba is still out with a fractured big toe. Dutch forward Danny Koevermans, who has made just one start and four appearances this season as he battles back from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, could return to the lineup Saturday. Koevermans played 70 minutes in a reserve game last weekend, and did "really well," Nelsen said. "Hes been training really well. Hopefully Danny will be right and hopefully well see him on Saturday. If Danny Koevermans is fit, hell be involved," Nelsen said. The coach is being cautious with Bright Dike, Torontos newly acquired forward whos still on the mend from knee surgery. Dike played 15 minutes in Torontos 2-0 loss last week to New York, the match that officially ended the teams playoff hopes. "I know from a lot of experience with ACL injuries and recoveries, sometimes you can get a bit too greedy with them and this is time not to be greedy," Nelsen said. Defender Mark Bloom made his debut versus New York and played 90 minutes in place of an injured Richard Eckersley. The 25-year-old right back, who was acquired on loan in July from NASL club Atlanta Silverbacks, wasnt sure if he was in Nelsens plans for Saturday. "My job is to make it a hard decision on him," Bloom said. "You play in the lower leagues and the dream is to make that jump to MLS and for me getting this opportunity I feel very blessed to get that call, because not many guys do, even though there is a lot of talent in those leagues. It definitely is a great opportunity for me and I intend to take full advantage of it." The young defender had a tough task against crafty French striker Thierry Henry and the Red Bulls, but Nelsen was pleased with how Bloom fared in his Toronto debut. "Hes composed, hes a good athlete, hes very comfortable on the ball, he likes to defend, and wants to defend, and wants the ball, and hes an intelligent player as well," Nelsen said. "The more games you get the more confidence youre going to get and the more personality will come out of him as a player. "Mark did really well in that game, and yeah, its going to be a really difficult decision obviously because of how well he did and how well Richards been doing. But its a great decision to be made, Id like to have that at every position." Nike Air Vapormax Navy+Multi-Color . What they did need, the Devils got from Patrik Elias.

James Harden wasnt worried and told his coach as much. "He was fired up but I told him: Its OK. Were going to be all right," Harden said. And they were. Houston scored 17 straight points after that timeout, led by 10 from Harden, to take the lead and roll to an easy 129-106 win. http://www.clearancevapormax.com/cheap-v...-clearance.html.

The Blues, who have on regulation loss in the past eight, are ahead of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Chicago Blackhawks. On a 5-1-1 stretch in the past seven games, the Montreal Canadiens gained ground to move from 13 to nine. The Philadelphia Flyers, on a four-game winning streak, move from 20 to 16 and the Minnesota Wild, who have thrived despite injuries, are up from 23 to 20. Heading the other way, the Winnipeg Jets had back-to-back losses for the first time under Paul Maurice and, as always, goaltending is a concern, contributing to their slide from 12 to 17. The Carolina Hurricanes slip from 16 to 19, though if they are really prepared to keep goaltender Cam Ward in the background, that ranking would improve based on how well Anton Khuddobin has played when given the opportunity this year.dddddddddddd No team should be welcoming the Olympic break more than the Vancouver Canucks, who have two regulation wins in the past 20 games and desperately need to get healthy if they are going to mount a late-season charge to recapture a playoff spot. In any case, the Canucks slide sees them drop from 19 to 23. Among the rest of Canadian teams, the Toronto Maple Leafs sit at 15, up a couple of spots, and their highest placement in the rankings since late November. A blowout loss to Boston in the final game before the break knocked the Ottawa Senators down a couple of spots, from 22 to 24, while the suddenly-improving Edmonton Oilers are up from 28 to 26, and the Calgary Flames are down from 27 to 28.
