LAKE LOUISE, Alta. - Lindsey Vonn raised her arms in the air, let out a whoop and fell flat on her back in celebration of an emotional World Cup downhill win Saturday.The ski star led an American sweep of the podium in Lake Louise, Alta., with Stacey Cook second and Julia Mancuso third. Canadas Larisa Yurkiw came the closest to spoiling the U.S. party by finishing a career-best fourth.Vonn claimed the 15th World Cup victory of her career at the Alberta ski resort, but this one was different. Since sweeping both downhills and super-G in 2012, Vonn underwent a pair of knee surgeries that limited her to less than a handful of races in the last year and a half.When she arrived in Lake Louise this week, Vonn hadnt raced in almost a year.The 30-year-old sobbed into the shoulder of her father Alan Kildow and other people on her support team when it was clear her time would hold up for the victory Saturday.Today was just an enormously happy day and also a big relief to know that Im back and I still have the capability of winning, Vonn said.Yurkiws celebration was similar to Vonns, minus the back flop in the finish area. After finishing 22nd in Fridays first downhill, the 26-year-old from Owen Sound, Ont., crossed the finish line less than two-tenths of a second from the podium.Its just such a validation to what I believe in my gut, Yurkiw said. Ive chosen to believe in myself and built a career around it. Im really lucky that its working.Vonns time was one minute 50.48 seconds. Cook was second in 1:50.97, Mancuso third in 1:51.05 and Yurkiw fourth in 1:51.22. Overall World Cup leader Tina Maze of Slovenia was eighth after winning Fridays downhill.There were four American women in the top-10, but none on the podium in Fridays first downhill of the season. They swept the medals Saturday and put four in the top six with Edmonton-born Laurenne Ross finishing sixth. The Audi World Cup Lake Louise concludes with Sundays super-G.Mancuso says the chemistry on the team works well when Vonn is on her game.We missed having someone so dominant around because you can always count on her to put in a good performance, Mancuso said.The rest of us on a good day, were definitely contending for the podium, but Lindseys proved that every day shes contending for the podium. Its nice to have that sort of energy and intensity. Its like OK Lindsey has her game face on so we need to put our game-face on.Cook also returned to the podium in Lake Louise after finishing second in a pair of downhills two years ago.For North Americans, its kind of the one spot where we have an advantage over the Europeans, she said. That comes from Lake Louise being so supportive of junior racing. They host the Nor-Ams and for a junior racer to get on a World Cup track, its the only place in North America that happens. We have a lot of experience here. We have a lot of runs on this hill. You learn whats fast and experience counts big time.Yurkiws catastrophic knee injury in 2009 kept her from racing for almost two years. She lost her spot on the Canadian ski team for the 2013-14 season, so Yurkiw raised money via sponsorships and raced solo to qualify for the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.She regained her place on the national team as the lone downhiller for this season, but turned down financial support from Alpine Canada. The organization runs the womens national team as a combination of speed and technical — slalom and giant slalom — racers. Yurkiw didnt want to join a program where downhill was not a priority.Yurkiws previous best results — a sixth and a seventh in downhills — came last year when she was on her own. Her expectations for Lake Louise this year were low. Yurkiws return to snow in the fall was delayed because of a pair of off-season knee surgeries.Im a racer so I come out and hope to be the fastest every day and sometimes you are and most of the time youre not, so Im really happy with todays result, Yurkiw said.This is much beyond anything we could have hoped for this weekend. My coach was almost crying yesterday and hes like a mans man, so kind of awkward, but I think were surpassing our goals. It opens up the season for an anything-is-possible year.Vonn tore a pair of ligaments and broke a bone in her right leg racing super-G at the 2013 world alpine ski championships.Her attempted comeback for the Winter Olympics stalled out when she tore one the reconstructed ligaments and then sprained a ligament last season. Vonn underwent a second knee surgery in January and did not defend her Olympic womens downhill title.Lake Louise is a place where the four-time overall World Cup champion has dominated in the past. It delivered a welcome dose of confidence Saturday.It was a really long way, you know from being injured and two operations and coming back and coming back again and not quite knowing if I would get to be where I was before, she said. You know I always believed in myself. I never gave up that belief but at the same time, its hard not knowing.With 60 career World Cup victories, Vonn is two away from matching the womens record of 62 held by Annemarie Moser-Proell of Austria. Vonn denied that was on her mind Saturday.No, I just have to focus on the skiing, she said. Every day has gotten better. I just have to keep building my confidence and keep working and everything will eventually come. Brandon Finnegan Jersey . The (35-35-10) Jets have 80 points and are also playing .500 hockey on home ice this season with a 17-17-6 record. Michael Hutchinson will start his second straight game in goal.

Billy Hamilton Jersey . Nathan Beaulieu, Tomas Jurco, Danick Gauthier and Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and an assist each as the Sea Dogs extended the longest streak in the Canadian Hockey League this season. Tony Perez Jersey . Wheeler said Kane was just making a joke that was misunderstood and misinterpreted by "Winnipeg folks" and the media once again. Wheeler repeated that he believes Kane is a player who has the ability to help the Jets get to the next level as they try once again to reach the playoffs in 2014. He made the comments initially in an interview, when asked how the Jets could compete in the Central Division with teams that have made some high-profile off-season signings.The Los Angeles Kings stormed back after falling behind 2-0 to the Chicago Blackhawks, scoring six straight goals to take Game Two, tying the series at one game apiece. Jeff Carter was the scoring force for the Kings, with a hat trick and an assist, all in the third period. Carter now has 16 points in 16 playoff games and, over the past three years, has 42 playoff points, ranking second only to Anze Kopitar. Carter is having success centering a line with rookies Tanner Pearson and Tyler Toffoli on his wings. Pearson had a couple of assists in Game Two and Toffoli scored the Kings fourth goal. Pearson and Toffoli each have nine points in the postseason, one behind Nathan MacKinnon and Torey Krug for the rookie lead in the playoffs. Pearson has been particularly efficient in terms of points per minute of ice time. Chicago appeared to have the game well in hand, holding a 2-0 lead with a couple minutes left in the second period, but Justin Williams scored a goal off a seemingly inoccuous play to get the Kings on the board with 1:40 remaining in the second, then Los Angeles scored a pair of power play goals in the first 4:04 of the third period to turn the game upside down. Kings D Alec Martinez had an assist, but was also on the ice for 18 shot attempts for and seven against (72.0%) during 5-on-5 play. With Martinez off the ice, the Kings got 39.1% of the 5-on-5 shot attempts. At the same time, the Kings top defence pairing of Drew Doughty and Jake Muzzin were both on for less than 30% of the shot attempts at 5-on-5.dddddddddddd Chicagos possession leader was LW Brandon Saad (13 attempts for, four against, 76.5%), while RW Kris Versteeg and C Peter Regin were at the other end of the spectrum, both under 25% in possession terms. Kings G Jonathan Quick stopped 23 of 25 shots, making some crucial saves when the game was 2-0 for Chicago and a third goal might put the game out of reach. Blackhawks G Corey Crawford allowed five goals in a game for the first time since November 16. Its not a surprise that the Kings power play made a difference -- their 24.1% success rate in the playoffs is best among the final four teams -- but the surprise is seeing the Blackhawks penalty killing unit get lit up for a pair of goals. Prior to Game Two, Chicagos penalty kill had allowed four goals on 48 power plays, 91.7%, so to suddenly allow two within 2:27 in the third period was highly unusual -- Chicago had allowed two power play goals against once in the previous 61 (regular season plus playoff) games. While the manner in which it happened could be considered surprising, it should be expected that the Kings will give the Blackhawks all they can handle. These are two elite teams and neither figures to go quietly, but now the advantage goes to the Kings who, with the split in Chicago, have gained home-ice advantage.
