TORONTO -- Left with nothing play for at the World Cup of Hockey, coach John Tortorella told his United States players to play a game for themselves.They played hard, gave effort in a meaningless round-robin finale but still lost 4-3 to the Czech Republic on Thursday night. With an 0-3-0 record and a minus-6 goal differential, the U.S. finished seventh among eight teams, ahead of only Finland.The bottom line is we leave here with nothing, Tortorella said. Certainly we cant be happy about that.Previous losses to Team Europe and Canada eliminated the Americans from contention. While Canada, Sweden, Europe and Russia prepare for the semifinals this weekend, the U.S. and Czech Republic played out the string in front of a half-empty arena.Joe Pavelski, Justin Abdelkader and Ryan McDonagh scored for the U.S., which did not unravel in a meaningless game like it did in the 2014 Olympic bronze medal game. Ben Bishop allowed four goals on 20 shots in two periods, and Cory Schneider made seven saves in relief.Petr Mrazek stopped 36 of the 39 shots he faced to backstop the Czech Republic to its first victory. Milan Michalek scored twice and Zbynek Michalek and Andrej Sustr each had a goal.U.S. players promised they wouldnt mail it in with nothing to play for. A result of human nature, it felt like an all-star game with a lack of real physicality as everyone wanted to get through without getting injured.I thought some guys gave some really true efforts, Tortorella said. We just didnt find a way to win the hockey game.Afterward, Tortorella broke from his usual routine and addressed the team.McDonagh said the message was, Keep your heads up, youre all great players. You all represent your country to the best of your ability and you were a great group to be around.Frustration boiled over for Dustin Byfuglien at the final buzzer as he went after Czech defenseman Michal Jordan. A healthy scratch in the tournament opener, the Winnipeg Jets defenseman had a beautiful pass to set up Abdelkaders goal and was one of the best players on the ice.A collection of fans spent stretches of the first period chanting, Lets go Kessel! and We want Kessel! Stanley Cup-winning Pittsburgh Penguins winger Phil Kessel was left off the U.S. team and made light of that on Twitter on Tuesday night after the Americans lost to Canada.That was a must-win game for the U.S. after opening the tournament with what Patrick Kane called a dud against Europe. General manager Dean Lombardi blamed not being prepared for that game for the U.S. bowing out of the World Cup.I dont think we showed enough respect for the talent on that team, Lombardi said Thursday morning.Lombardi said that the 3-0 loss to Europe put the U.S. behind the proverbial 8-ball that felt like a boulder. The Los Angeles Kings GM has seen his team come back from a 3-0 playoff deficit but described the locker room after losing to Europe as tight, and the U.S. was never able to adequately respond.We needed to do a better job than what we did, but theres a lot of good players in that room, captain Joe Pavelski said. We kind of beat ourselves a little bit.Getting almost skated out of the rink by Canada wasnt entirely unexpected, but players acknowledged their recipe to move on was to beat Europe and the Czech Republic. They didnt do either, and USA Hockey faces plenty of questions about how it will bounce back for the 2018 Olympics, if NHL players participate.Tortorella said he had a few ideas about changes that could be made but preferred to keep those to himself. He doesnt want USA Hockey to overreact despite a lackluster showing on a big stage.Weve just got to slow ourselves down and dissect whats happened, he said. It certainly isnt good. But not to the extent as far as the chatter all around us. I think weve got to block out the noise, re-assess where we went and see what we can do to get us better as an organization.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno Vapormax Flyknit Homme Pas Cher .

TAMPA, Fla. -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers arent spending a lot of time mulling over the prospects of earning a playoff berth for the first time in nearly a decade.The surest way to give themselves the best possible shot is to win their remaining two games, and thats all Jameis Winston and his teammates need to know.I love math, but I dont trust the percentages and the probabilities, the second-year quarterback said. I trust our heart, this teams heart, and what we need to do to find a way to get in there.The Bucs (8-6) play at New Orleans on Saturday, then close out the regular season at home against defending NFC champion Carolina on Jan.1.Tampa Bay, which trails first-place Atlanta (9-5) by one game in the NFC South standings, hasnt made the playoffs since 2007.Beating the Saints and Panthers wont absolutely guarantee a berth, however there are few potential scenarios that would eliminate the Bucs if they finish with 10 wins.Coach Dirk Koetter conceded that at this point in the season, its difficult to keep track of all the mathematical possibilities associated with a playoff race.Of course its out there, and we talked about it a little bit (Tuesday). But if we dont do what were supposed to do, then its just speculation, Koetter said. So we cant spend too much time. ... Weve got our hands full just worrying about the Saints this week. The rest of it is all just a bunch of math problems that are over my head.dddddddddddd.Last Sundays 26-20 loss at Dallas was Tampa Bays first in six weeks. It cost the Bucs a clear path to the second NFC wild-card spot, although they didnt have to wait long for some much-needed help with Washington (7-6-1) losing to Carolina to relinquish the inside track to a berth on Monday night.Winston is confident the team, which won five straight to climb into playoff contention after starting 3-5, has the mettle to bounce back and finish strong.He feels the team demonstrated that it has what it takes to get the job done by putting together a five-game winning streak -- Tampa Bays longest in 13 years -- to climb into contention after a 3-5 start.Just never giving up. Playing against tough teams and believing that we can do it, expecting to win, not hoping, the quarterback said.Not playing not to lose, but playing to win. Thats important because its a fine margin between a win and a loss, Winston added. You see it, inches really do determine the game that we play. So when you go out there expecting to win instead of hoping to win, its different.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Wholesale NFL Womens Jerseys China Womens NFL Jerseys Nike NFL Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Outlet Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale NFL White Jerseys Discount Jerseys ' ' '
