With a 2-0 series lead squandered, Colorado Avalanche head coach Patrick Roy couldnt be more blunt about his teams performance going into Game 5 of their Western Conference first-round series with the Minnesota Wild. "Were right there with them," he told reporters on Friday. "Now its time, sorry about the words, to put our balls on the table." The Wild went home from Denver down two games in their series against the Avalanche and - following solid starts from goaltender Darcy Kuemper - theyre leaving St. Paul with the series even at 2-2. Charlie Coyle and Jared Spurgeon each scored once while Kuemper held the fort to send the Wild to a 2-1 victory over the Avs in Game 4 on Thursday. The Avalanche struggled offensively during their two games in Minnesota, scoring just one goal and firing just 12 shots on Kuemper in Game 4. Colorado has been outshot 78-34 in the last two games, with Ryan OReilly getting the lone goal. "Im not happy about that," Roy added. "Lets not kid ourselves. We know we can do better and we will. Theres always adjustments...one other thing, their goalie did a good job not giving too many rebounds. Plus, we missed the net too many times. Sometimes in the playoffs, you need to put the puck on the net with the purpose of getting a rebound." The Avalanche went 0-for-8 on the power play over the last two games and is 1-for-15 in the series, but Roy warned that such challenges are natural for a young team that isnt even a Stanley Cup contender. "We need to be patient with our group," he explained. "This is a young team. This is a team that, lets not forget, finished 29th last year. These are huge steps and this is a learning process." The series returns to Denver for Game 5 on Saturday.

Times just about up. The three-day proceeding starts with the first round Thursday and the Bears, owners of the 14th pick, still need help on defence even after some big moves. So a little extra time to study the prospects suited Emery just fine. "I love it, honestly. Ive heard reports of people complaining about it," he said. "I dont know what theyre complaining about." The draft was pushed back about two weeks because of a scheduling conflict at New Yorks Radio City Music Hall. Emery said that allowed the Bears to have "less-rushed conversations" as they try to weigh short-term gains against long-term benefits. The defence ranked among the leagues worst a year ago and was the biggest reason the Bears missed the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years at 8-8. The Bears have been busy addressing that, bringing in Jared Allen and parting with Julius Peppers in an effort to spark a defence that ranked 30th overall, last against the run, and tied Jacksonville with a league-low 31 sacks. They still need help on the line, at linebacker and in the secondary, particularly at safety. Chicago has one pick in each of the first five rounds (Nos. 14, 51, 82, 117 and 156) and two in the sixth round (183 and 191). With that in mind, here are five things to know about the draft. STILL ON THE DEFENSIVE: Emery said he has six candidates for the 14th pick assuming the Bears keep it, and theres a good chance hell go with a defensive player even though he wasnt ruling out offence. Pittsburgh defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Alabama free safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert could be strong possibilities for Chicago. ROLL THE DICE: Emery showed in his first two drafts hes not afraid to take a chance on a first-round pick. He gambled on Shea McClelllin in 2012 and did it again with Kyle Long last year.dddddddddddd The results? Hes batting .500 so far. Long was a hit at right guard even though he made just five starts in his lone season at Oregon. McClellin is a swing and miss so far and is moving from defensive end to linebacker. At least Emery hit it big in the second round in 2012 with receiver Alshon Jeffery, who broke out last season with 1,421 yards receiving. PASS ON QB?: Emery insisted hes comfortable with Jordan Palmer backing up Jay Cutler and that hes not in favour of grooming a quarterback drafted in the later rounds as a potential starter down the line. "That developmental theory doesnt hold a whole lot of water," he said. Starting with the 2006 class, Emery examined how quarterbacks drafted after the third round fared. He didnt find a long-term starter, let alone another Tom Brady. Mostly, it was a collection of third-stringers, many of whom did not last long in the league. "Most of the starters in this league come from the first and second round. So thats where you need to take a quarterback," he said. The idea of pairing a late-round QB with coach Marc Trestman doesnt seem to interest him. "Im more intrigued with how Marc matches up with Jay and Jordan and Jerrod (Johnson)," he said. PLAYING IT SAFE-TY: Emery declared the starting safety spots "wide open" with the struggling Chris Conte back and Major Wright gone. Theyve brought in Ryan Mundy and M.D. Jennings and figure to add more help in the draft. The Bears have also scouted college cornerbacks with length with the idea of converting them to safeties, although that carries some risk. MAKING A MOVE: Emery said hes fielded calls from teams looking to move up to No. 14. He also indicated trading up is unlikely, saying such moves are "expensive." ___ Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
