TORONTO -- Toronto FC manager Ryan Nelsen was anything but conciliatory Wednesday when informed former Toronto mayor David Miller had returned his season tickets to protest the underachieving MLS club. Adolphus Washington Jersey . "I guarantee coming probably in early January, hell wish he had them back," Nelsen said defiantly after a 1-1 tie with the Chicago Fire. "So hes going to look pretty silly, to tell you the truth. "But thats what fans do. They have the right to do whatever they want. But therell be a time pretty soon that whoever decides to do that, I hope they get made to pay double to get (the tickets) back." In referring to January, Nelsen meant the next international transfer window. Toronto (4-13-11) has said it plans to open the vault for two designated player strikers. More than a few fans seemed to be in the Miller camp, judging from the announced season-low crowd of 15,217 at BMO Field for a game played under the threat of a severe thunderstorm. The actual number looked a lot smaller and made for a Canadian Armed Forces Night devoid of energy. Miller made his feelings known in an open letter posted to Facebook. The former mayor, who was involved in helping get the Toronto stadium built, cited the franchises decision to fire president and general manager Kevin Payne and trade newly acquired Argentine striker Maximiliano Urruti, among other beefs. "There once was magic at BMO Field," Miller wrote. "The latest reshuffle has made the possibility of that magic returning almost certainly disappear." Wednesdays tie extended Torontos winless streak to six games (0-3-3). Its last victory was Aug. 4 over New England. Torontos season line reads like this: a win each in March, June, July and August. Toronto did not help itself on offence, with several instances of players selfishly trying shots themselves rather than passing to open teammates. "They were the best chances of the game," lamented a frustrated Nelsen. The home side also needed a game-saving close-range stop from goalie Joe Bendik in the 80th minute on former TFC player Quincy Amarikwa to preserve the tie. For Chicago (10-11-6), the evening represented dropped points in its playoff push. The Fire arrived in seventh spot in the East, just two points out of fifth place and a post-season berth. Chicago came out early and went ahead in the 20th minute on a Dilly Duka goal. The Fire faded, but Toronto could not take advantage. Wednesdays storyline for Toronto was all about an offence that failed to take its chances. The club also suffered some more bad luck when Robert Earnshaw injured himself in scoring the tying goal in the 23rd minute on a wet field. He was forced off the pitch two minutes later with a hamstring problem. The only good news is he considers it minor and its not the hamstring that kept him out for several weeks earlier in the season. With designated player Danny Koevermans only just back in training from the latest in a line of injuries, that leaves Toronto with only three fit strikers for Saturdays game in New York and one of those, newly acquired Bright Dike, has hardly played after undergoing knee surgery in February. Neither team sparkled offensively Wednesday. Chicago outshot Toronto 18-15 but only 4-3 in shots on target. The opening Chicago goal came in the 20th minute via a looping ball from midfielder Duka that skipped just over the foot of a lunging Mike Magee and past Bendik, who was caught in no-mans land because of the oncoming Magee. There were seven Toronto players behind the ball when Duka launched it, notching his fourth of the season. Earnshaw tied it three minutes later after Bobby Convey threaded a cross through three Chicago players to the Welsh striker, who hesitated to make a defender commit before firing the ball past Sean Johnson. It was Earnshaws seventh goal of the season but first since June 15. Earnshaw did not launch his trademark goal somersault celebration, saying later its probably been a decade since an injury prevented him from doing it. Its been that kind of season for Toronto FC. Nelsen, asked if he had done something wrong in a past life given Earnshaw injuring himself while scoring, opted to see a positive. "Its just a build-up of karma thats going to come back in floods," he said with a smile. Toronto substitute Justin Braun twice ignored open teammates on attack. Spanish winger Alvaro Rey also appeared to be blind in one eye on one rush. But Rey showed off his good side in the 45th minute, curling a magnificent shot from distance off the corner of the crossbar. Toronto started defenders Doneil Henry and Ashtone Morgan and midfielder Jonathan Osorio, just days after they played for Canada in a Sunday friendly against Mauritania in Spain. Despite the onerous travel schedule, Henry and Osorio both offered some nice touches. But Henry got a late yellow card, earning a one-game suspension for card accumulation. Toronto FC said close to 500 military were on hand for the game. MLS commissioner Don Garber was also on hand, sitting with Payne. Shareece Wright Jersey .com) - The Carolina Panthers won for the first time in seven games last week, were without Cam Newton due to a car accident this week, but somehow sit atop the much-maligned NFC South. Andre Holmes Jersey . The four-time Grand Slam champion has beaten Hantuchova nine straight times, with the Slovaks only win coming when they first played 10 years ago. "I had a tough first opponent who can play extremely good tennis," Sharapova said. . Altidore strained his left hamstring in the Americans opener against Ghana on June 16 and didnt play in their next two games. "We dont know how much because we need to see how hes going, but hes available," U.BOSTON -- Boston winger Milan Lucic didnt hide the thoughts many of his teammates may have had in the Bruins locker room following a fairly easy win over Carolina. "I just hope were not peaking right now and keep wanting more," Lucic said after the Eastern Conference-leading Bruins beat the Hurricanes 5-1 on Saturday afternoon for their eighth straight victory. "Weve done a good job of staying focused and keeping on the task at hand," he said. "It seems like were playing at our highest level of the season so far. It seems to have gotten better since the start of February and Olympic break." Jarome Iginla scored a pair of goals and backup goaltender Chad Johnson made 29 saves, helping extend the Bruins longest winning streak since a 10-game stretch in November 2011. Lucic had a goal and two assists, Torey Krug and Chris Kelly each scored a goal and David Krejci added three assists, his first coming as he was falling to the ice on Lucics score. Bruins coach Claude Julien wasnt about to say his team is playing its best. "If he thinks were peaking too soon I can show him areas where we can play better," he said, breaking into a grin. "Were playing well and working hard." Alexander Semin had the goal and Cam Ward made 36 saves for the Hurricanes, who lost for the eighth time in 11 games. Johnson, playing with regular goalie Tuukka Rask getting the day off, is 8-0-1 in his past nine starts. Bruins defenceman Johnny Boychuk had to be helped off the ice favouring his right leg after going off-balance into the boards midway into the third period. He was back about a minute later and ended up blocking a shot before limping off on his next shift. Boston grabbed a 1-0 lead on Lucics goal 15:28 into the opening period. Krejci was falling after being tripped on what would have been a penalty on Eric Staal, but he pushed the puck ahead to Lucic. The winger then snapped off a quick shot inside the right post into a wide-open area with Ward over near the other post. "Its funny. I was talking to him after the play," Lucic said, smiling. "He said he was going to shoot it. Its a bit of a lucky play to come back to me. Again, youve gotta be lucky to be good sometimes. Thats what happened there. Thats how it goes sometimes. You can be working hard and playing well and things dont go your way. Jerry Hughes Jersey. quot; Lucic then set up Iginla to make it 2-0 at 17:24 of the second. The Bruins rugged winger outworked defenceman Jay Harrison for the puck in the corner, hustled to it behind the net and sent a pass out front to Iginla, who fired a wrist shot inside the far post over Wards glove. Semin ended Johnsons shutout bid 3:53 into the third when his shot caromed off the stick of Boychuk and bounced into the net. Boston broke it open with two goals later in the period before Krug scored in the final seconds. "Yeah, you know what, theyre a good hockey team, theyre physical," Carolina coach Kirk Muller said. "It was disappointing for us because weve been playing pretty good hockey recently. Usually, as the game goes on we get stronger and stronger, but I dont think we pushed back well enough tonight after they came out hard in the first. They set the tone and I dont think we really responded -- even though the game was a 2-1 game for the most part." Kellys score made it 3-1 at 12:49 and Iginla scored his team-leading 23rd goal 13 seconds later, firing a wrister past Ward from the slot. Johnson had a key save late in the second after Boston made it 2-0 when he made a right pad stop on Staal at the end of a 2-on-1 break. "I thought we didnt capitalize on opportunities, and that always hurts us obviously early in the game, and then they just kept coming," Hurricanes forward Nathan Gerbe said.
