VANCOUVER - The Vancouver Canucks returned to returned to earth — with a resounding thud — Friday night. Amin Younes Jersey .Martin Hanzal recorded a hat trick, including two goals only nine seconds apart, as the Arizona Coyotes stunned the Canucks 5-0 before a disappointed crowd of 18,708 at Rogers Arena.After entering the game tied for second overall, Vancouver (12-6-0) took only its third loss in the past 11 games. But the one-sided setback was a clear sign that the Canucks cant afford to get too excited about their recent success as they attempt to atone for missing the playoffs last season for the first time since 2008.I dont think we were hungry enough, said Vancouver coach Willie Desjardins. We played okay, but okay doesnt win you any games in this league.The Coyotes (7-9-1), who entered the game last in the Western Conference and 28th overall in the NHL, ended their losing streak at three games. Meanwhile, Dave Tippett recorded his 200th NHL career coaching win.Vancouver goaltender Ryan Miller allowed four goals on 13 shots in the first two periods. Arizona scored the only goal of the opening session despite being outshot 12-3.Hanzal opened the scoring off a counter-attack 14:56 into the game, beating Miller with a quick shot on his short side. It was only the Coyotes third shot on goal. They were limited to just one shot in the first 11:30 — and managed only two in the same time span in the second.But the game turned quickly late in the second period. Hanzal scored his second goal at 15:25 as he deflected in a high Tobias Rieder shot. The goal was allowed to stand after an extended video review.Hanzal then completed his hat trick at 15:34 as he beat Miller on his blocker side. Doans goal with less than three seconds left in the same period gave Arizona its third goal on three shots.It was a tough call, said Desjardins. We thought it was a high stick, but its our job (not to get thrown off.) Things are gonna happen in a game — good or bad — and we cant respond that way. We have to stay focused.The Canucks goalie agreed with his coach that the team responded poorly to the video review going against them.Not the best response, Miller said. But I wanna make a save and make a difference — and it just didnt happen tonight.Doans goal with less than three seconds left in the same period gave Arizona its third goal on three shots.Hanzal posted his second career hat trick after almost a six-year wait following the first one, which came in December 2008 against Toronto.I had a really poor last couple of games, so I was kind of waiting for tonight, he said. And, I knew I had to be really good tonight — and I thought we had a really good effort from the whole group.Obviously, our most important player is Martin Hanzal, said Doan. When hes rolling, were a better team — and he got rolling tonight.Arizona goaltender Devan Dubnyk made 35 saves while the Coyotes managed only 23 shots. He earned the win in his first start since allowing five goals in a Nov. 2 victory over Washington. Dubnyks last shutout came Dec. 27, 2013 while he was still with Edmonton, in a win over Calgary.Anytime you come in here its always an easy game to get engaged, he said. Its always nice to get some shots early and get a chance to find some pucks and feel it a little bit, and they got some early.Notes — Wingers Derek Dorsett and winger Radim Vrbta returned to the Vancouver lineup after they both missed two games with undisclosed injuries. … The Coyotes put defenceman David Schlemko on waivers earlier Friday. … Canucks equipment manager Pat ONeill dropped the puck in the ceremonial face-off before working his 2,500th game with the team. … Coyotes winger B.J. Crombeen played his 400th NHL career game. … Canucks rookie centre Bo Horvat was a healthy scratch … The Canucks feted Sebastien Sasseville, 35, of Quebec City after he completed his cross-Canada run in support of juvenile diabetes research here Friday. Sasseville, who suffers from Type 1 diabetes, completed the trek in 9 ? months. The conclusion of his run coincided with World Diabetes Day. Karim Bellarabi Jersey . As future stars prepare to make the big leap to the professional ranks, TSNs Draft Week delivers wall-to-wall coverage of both the NHL and NBA Entry Drafts, highlighted by exclusive live coverage of both events. Kerem Demirbay Jersey . - Christophe Lalancette scored a third-period goal and added the shootout winner to lead the Drummondville Voltigeurs to a 5-4 win over the Quebec Remparts in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play on Sunday. http://www.germanyfcsoccershop.com/c-12-lukas-podolski-germany-jersey.aspx . -- Damian Lillard couldnt believe when he got a clear look at the rim. NASHVILLE -- Geno Auriemma and UConn reached the top of womens college basketball in unprecedented fashion. After winning a record ninth national championship -- they stand alone. The Huskies reached the pinnacle in style, routing Notre Dame in the first NCAA basketball championship game featuring undefeated teams. Auriemma and his Huskies now have one more title than Pat Summitt and Tennessee for most all-time, and they did it in the Hall of Famers backyard. The Huskies had struggled recently against the Irish, but not Tuesday night, cruising to a 79-58 win. "It means weve done something no one else has ever done," Auriemma said. "Flattered and grateful and all the things that come with this kind of accomplishment. ... Im more proud of the legacy that exists and what Connecticut basketball is as opposed to the number of championships." Breanna Stewart, who was The Associated Press Player of the Year, scored 21 points to lead the Huskies (40-0) while Stefanie Dolson added 17 points, 16 rebounds and seven assists. Auriemma took out his senior centre with a minute left and the game well in hand with the pair embracing in a long hug. "We beat a great, great team," Auriemma said. "Notre Dame is a great team. For them to have the season they had and lose their starting centre and to do what they did, I cant say enough about their players, coaching staff and it took everything we have. I knew if we played great wed have a chance to win." The victory also meant that UConn is now the centre of the college basketball world with both the mens and womens teams winning the championship in the same year again. The mens team beat Kentucky in the title game Monday night. This pair of victories came a decade after the Huskies became the only Division I school to accomplish the feat. "I couldnt be prouder of what the men did last night," Auriemma said. Notre Dame coach Muffet McGraw congratulated the UConn coach when they shook hands after the game. "I said something like, I thought we were playing the Miami Heat for a while you guys are just that good. What a great season, you know things like that," McGraw said. "I thought ... LeBron was the only thing they were missing." While the names change at UConn, from Rebecca Lobo to Diana Taurasi, Maya Moore and now Stewart, Auriemma has been the constant, winning nine titles in only 20 seasons -- including the last two. Hes never lost in a national championship game. "Congratulations to the UConn Huskies for winning the 2014 NCAA National Chammpionship!," Summitt said in a statement emailed to The Associated Press. Thomas Muller Jersey. "My compliments also to coach Geno Auriemma for winning his ninth national title. He has accomplished this feat in record time." It was the fifth unbeaten season for Auriemma and UConn and the first time the Huskies went 40-0 -- matching Baylor as the only schools to accomplish that feat. The victory was also Connecticuts 46th straight dating back to last seasons NCAA tournament title run. Its the third longest streak in school history -- well short of the NCAA record 90 straight they won. The loss was Notre Dames third in the title game in the past four years. Kayla McBride finished off her stellar career with 21 points to lead the Irish, who were looking for their first championship since 2001. "Obviously we wanted to finish this season with a championship," said Irish freshman Taya Reimer, who replaced Achonwa in the starting lineup. "Right now, it is hard to think about. It hurts a lot." After proving to be no challenge for the Huskies during the first 15 years of the rivalry which began in 1995, Notre Dame had owned the series lately, winning seven of the previous nine meetings. UConn though has won the last two, eliminating Notre Dame in the Final Four last season before topping them in the championship game this year. The former Big East rivals played an entertaining first half in the highly anticipated matchup that womens basketball hoped could transcend the sport. The programs dont care for each other and the coaches added to the drama of the game with their verbal sparring on Monday. But it was Auriemma who got the last word again. Even with the loss, it was a record-setting season for the Irish. Notre Dame lost Skylar Diggins to graduation and changed conferences to the ACC. Neither mattered as they ran through their opponents, winning by an average of 25.6 points while taking both the conference regular season and tournament championships. The Irish lost senior Natalie Achonwa to a torn ACL in the regional final win over Baylor. Notre Dame wore warmup shirts with Achonwas nickname "Ace" below her No. 11. The team played inspired basketball in the Final Four win over Maryland where Notre Dame outrebounded the Terps by a record margin. The Irish couldnt muster a similar effort against UConn. The Huskies outrebounded the Irish 54-31 and held them to a season-low in points. "They got comfortable," McBride said. "They got into a rhythm, and it just went downhill from there."
