hole on Ward with his own rebound, his seventh
DENVER -- The Broncos have had moments this season when their defense shows frustration after games, but things reached a boiling point Sunday night.According to NFL.com, Broncos coach Gary Kubiak had to break up a locker room shouting match between defensive backs and offensive linemen, which escalated when Kubiak asked if anyone would like to address the team after its?16-3 loss to the New England Patriots.Broncos left tackle and relative newcomer Russell Okung had volunteered to speak, but cornerback Aqib Talib?objected. Yelling between the two groups then erupted, according to the NFL.com report, which cited sources in the room.?Pretty much your classic offense-versus-defense divide, one player told NFL.com.Multiple team sources told ESPN on Sunday night that the defensive backs and offensive linemen have exchanged postgame words on at least one other occasion in recent weeks.Denver (8-6), the defending Super Bowl champion, is in third place in the AFC West.?The Broncos must win out and would still need help to earn a wild-card berth.Everybodys frustrated, cornerback Chris Harris Jr.?told ESPN on Sunday. We feel like we played almost good enough defense to win that game. I dont know if [we] ever kept [Tom] Brady under 16 points, and we did that today. Thats what makes you sick, when we come out and play stout like we did today.A smattering of Broncos defensive players called their time spent on the field in recent games our quota. The group has played at least 76 snaps in four of the past seven games -- including 81 plays in Jacksonville -- a high number for any defense.On Sunday, the Patriots had the ball for 73 plays.I definitely understand their frustration, Okung told NFL.com, in reference to the Broncos defensive backs. They played well enough to win, and they held that team to 16 points, which a lot of teams dont do. Were an emotional team. Thats what makes us so good. To me, thats part of who we are.When our defense is out there, theyre an emotional group, and they hold themselves to a high standard, added Okung, who signed with the Broncos in March after six seasons with the Seattle Seahawks. As an offense, we need to do the same. So I think [their frustration] is warranted. Weve got to be better.Broncos safety?T.J. Ward?called the incident a byproduct of a little frustration.We are an emotional group, Ward told NFL.com. Thats why we play as well as we do. What happened wasnt even anything major -- just a little frustration. Were all trying to win.Kubiak has consistently said he believes the team has good leadership and has worked through previous heat-of-the-moment blowups. Talib pushed Jordan Norwood?after the wide receiver muffed a punt in a Nov. 27 loss. Norwood muffed another punt Sunday that led to a Patriots field goal.Talib and Norwood met one-on-one the morning after their incident to smooth things over. After Sundays game, Talib took a softer public stance when he was asked if frustrations had boiled over.Thats really not going to take us nowhere, though, just being frustrated, Talib said. And beefing with the offense [is] not going to get us nowhere. Were going to ride. Were going to stick together. Ian Kinsler Jersey.

"This record is incredible," Bayern coach Pep Guardiola said. ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Former Anaheim Ducks great Teemu Selanne had a philosophy about scoring goals. The Ducks are hoping his ketchup bottle theory applies to star winger Corey Perry.Perry and Nick Ritchie scored late in the third period to tie it and rookie Ondrej Kase got the deciding goal in a shootout, lifting the Ducks over the Carolina Hurricanes 6-5 on Wednesday night.After Ritchie deflected in Cam Fowlers shot with 3:59 left in the third, Perry got his fifth goal of the season with 2:28 remaining to tie it at 5.Its nice to see it hit the back of the net for once, and not the goalie, Perry said.Perry, who scored 34 goals last year and won the Hart Trophy with 50 in 2010-11, hadnt scored since Oct. 25, but said hes hoping this goal leads to more.There was a player that I coached before and his name was Teemu Selanne, Ducks coach Randy Carlyle said. He used to say that goal scoring was like pouring ketchup out of the ketchup bottle. Once it starts to flow, then it comes readily.It was the first non-regulation win for the Ducks this season and it was aided by Anaheims young core. Kase slickly deked to his backhand before lifting his shootout attempt over Cam Ward. Stefan Noesen, recalled from San Diego of the American Hockey League earlier in the day, got his first NHL goal, and Andrew Cogliano and Ryan Kesler also scored for Anaheim. John Gibson made 29 saves.The light went on and I threw my hands up, Noesen said. It was all of the emotions from two long years coming through at once.Teuvo Teravainen scored twice for the Hurricanes, and Jay McClement, Sebastian Aho and Brett Pesce also had goals. Ward made 33 saves while Carolina matched a season high with five goals.There were a couple breakdowns, Carolina coach Bill Peters said. At times, I thought we did a real good job at controlling the tempo of the game. We had the puck lots. But we need to do a better job defensively and have a better awareness away from the puck.Pesce scoredd on a slap shot 4:46 into the third period to give the Hurricanes a 4-2 lead.dddddddddddd Kesler scored about four minutes later to cut the deficit, but Teravainens second goal a minute later made it 5-3.Noesen scored at 13:52 in the second period to make it 3-2. Joseph Cramarossa and Kase, Noesens former San Diego Gulls teammates and roommate, were credited with the assists.Theyre both two of my pretty good friends, Noesen said. I think no matter what happens, it was special. Seeing Cram being the first one to come hug me and get the puck, that was awesome.Less than two minutes after McClement broke a 1-1 tie with a backhand around Gibson at 10:10 in the second period, Aho broke away, faked a shot and backhanded it over Gibson to make it 3-1.With 38 seconds left in the first period, Teravainen tied it at 1 with a power-play goal. Jaccob Slavin couldnt get a stick on a pass and instead used his skate to get it over to the right circle, where Teravainen found it and ripped a slap shot past Gibson.Cogliano put the Ducks on the board with just over three minutes left in the first, when he went five-hole on Ward with his own rebound, his seventh of the season.Game notes The Ducks are 1-5 in overtime this season. ...
