ENGLEWOOD, Colo. - The NFLs officiating chief has cleared Broncos receiver Wes Welker of any wrongdoing for his hit that knocked Patriots cornerback Aqib Talib out of Sundays AFC Championship. "It was a legal hit," Vice-President of Officiating Dean Blandino said on the NFL Network on Wednesday night. On Monday, New England coach Bill Belichick blasted Welker for the hit, calling it "one of the worst plays" hed seen in nearly four decades of coaching. Without mentioning his former player by name, Belichick said it "was a deliberate play by the receiver to take out Aqib, no attempt to get open." He added, "Ill let the league handle the discipline on that play." There will be no discipline for Welker; Blandino said there was simply no infraction of the rules. Welker, coming from the right, collided with Talib, who was running from the left to stay with his receiver, a split-second before Peyton Mannings pass went off the hands of receiver Demaryius Thomas a few yards away in the first quarter Sunday. No flag was thrown. Talib left the game with a knee injury and didnt return, and Manning threw for 400 yards in Denvers 26-16 win that sent the top-seeded Broncos to the Super Bowl. "The first potential foul would be for offensive pass interference; a receiver cant block downfield before the ball is touched, so the timing is important," Blandino said on his weekly appearance on the NFL Network. He noted that as "contact occurs, the ball is touched almost simultaneously. We dont have a foul for pass interference." "The other thing, is it unnecessary roughness? Under the current rules it isnt," Blandino said. "Its not late; Talib wasnt out of the play." Given that an injury occurred, Blandino said he expects the leagues competition committee to examine the play in the off-season "and determine if there needs to be a change. But under the current rules, this is a legal play." Welker, who had a cool relationship with Belichick before leaving New England as a free agent last off-season, hasnt been available for comment this week as the Broncos wont practice until Thursday. But after the game, Welker said, "it was one of those plays where its kind of a rub play and I was trying to get him to go over the top, and I think he was thinking the same thing and wanted to come underneath and we just kind of collided. ... It wasnt a deal where I was trying to hit him or anything like that." Broncos coach John Fox responded to Belichicks stinging criticism on Monday by saying Welker is a "a great player, high integrity. I can say that we were not doing anything with intent." At 5-foot-9 and 185 pounds, Welker is 4 inches shorter and 20 pounds lighter than Talib. Hes also wearing a special helmet to guard against further head injury after missing the final month of the season with his second concussion. Hes also never been known as a dirty player. Patriots safety Steve Gregory said he didnt think Welker would deliberately try to hurt a player, saying, "I dont think anybody plays that way, especially at this level of football with two great football teams in the Broncos and ourselves." Blandino said he has spoken with Belichick this week about the play "and obviously there is a difference of opinion there and something that well continue to look at during the off-season." ___ AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org ___ Follow AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton Alex Killorn Lightning Jersey .Y. -- As if the worst start in franchise history isnt bad enough, Buffalo Sabres President Ted Black braced his teams win-starved fans for potentially more tough times.

Two-time Olympic bronze medallists Savchenko and Szolkowy received 79.02 points to finish ahead of world bronze medallists Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford of Canada, who had 77.01 points. http://www.lightningproshop.com/. Thats exactly what happened. And they enjoyed every moment. Durant remained sizzling with 33 points, Serge Ibaka added 22 and the Thunder roared back from an abysmal start -- they trailed 22-4 early -- to embarrass the Miami Heat 112-95 on Wednesday night, erasing that big deficit out of the gate by outscoring the two-time defending champions by 43 points over a 33-minute span. Alex Killorn Lightning Jersey Authentic . Off-Season Game Plan looks at a Wild team that has a nice mix of proven veterans along with young, inexpensive talent on the rise. When the Wild signed Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, making a big splash in the summer of 2012, it set the franchise on a path to being more competitive, but a big reason that they have been so competitive is the contributions of young players who still have more to give. Valtteri Filppula Lightning Jersey Authentic .2 million in 2012, according to tax returns the league has submitted.NUREMBERG, Germany - Thomas Mueller scored twice as Germany got its Euro 2016 qualifying campaign back on track with an unconvincing 4-0 win over Gibraltar on Friday.Mueller opened the scoring in the 12th minute and claimed his second 17 minutes later. Mario Goetze made it 3-0 in the 38th, before an own goal from Yogan Santos completed the scoring in the 67th.There were whistles from some fans who had been expecting a higher score.Germany coach Joachim Loew said beforehand he wanted a result to reflect his sides status as the World Cup winners. Gibraltar, a territory of just 30,000 people, is playing its first qualifying tournament and had already lost 7-0 to both Ireland and Poland in Group D.To be honest Im anything but pleased, Loew said. For a world champion, four goals is too few. We didnt do the little things that we wanted to do. I cant be satisfied. We wanted to play quickly, break from our positions. But we didnt keep our positions.Despite the loss, Loews counterpart was the happier coach.Its a great result, said Allen Bula, whose side is made up mostly of amateurs. We really needed something like this to keep us going.Loew started with a very attacking line-up, with three at the back and four forwards in Mueller, Lukas Podolski, Max Kruse, and Karim Bellarabi, complemented just behind by Goetze and Toni Kroos.Kroos hit the side netting early on, Gibraltar keeper Jamie Robba saved Bellarabis effort and Podolski shot oveer as the hosts began with intent.ddddddddddddMueller was well-positioned to stab the ball home when Shkodran Mustafis cross rebounded off the near post and was only half cleared.Sensing a rout, fans expected the next to follow quickly, but it didnt come until the 29th, when Podolski crossed to give Mueller a tap-in.Goetze played a one-two with Kruse before firing past Robba in the 38th, before Gibraltar enjoyed a brief period of pressure.Manuel Neuer had to make a great save to stop Liam Walkers audacious effort from the sideline just before the interval.Germany dominated the second half but found it hard to penetrate the visitors stubborn defending until the unfortunate Santos turned Podolskis cross into his own net. Sami Khedira was lurking just behind and would surely have scored otherwise.We had a lot of chances to score. We should have scored more, its clear. It could have been seven or eight, Goetze said.Germany remains three points behind Group D leader Poland, which won 4-0 in Georgia thanks to second half goals from Kamil Glik, Grzegorz Krychowiak, Sebastian Mila and Arkadiusz Milik.Shaun Maloneys sweet curling strike inside the far post in the 75th was enough for Scotland to beat Ireland 1-0 in Glasgow, moving the Scots level on points with Ireland and Germany.It was pretty brutal. I dont think it was pretty at times, Maloney said. It was a physical game out there. Just glad to be on the winning side.
