RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes dont have a captain. They think they still have plenty of leaders.A young team hoping to finally break through to the postseason figures to take a leadership-by-committee approach to the season with nobody yet promoted to fill the captaincy void created by Eric Staals trade last season.Clearly establishing which -- and how many -- players will lead an inexperienced but promising team will be a top priority once training camp begins in the coming days. Of the 44 skaters on the roster, 32 of them are 24 years old or younger.With Eric leaving, everybody knows how bit of a hole that is in that aspect of the room, forward Jordan Staal said Friday. I know its not all going to fall on one guys shoulders. Its a team sport, and theres going to be a lot of guys ready to step up in different roles regarding leadership, including myself.The Hurricanes somehow played their best hockey of last season immediately after they traded Eric Staal to the New York Rangers at the trading deadline, earning points in 12 of the 14 games that followed the trade to mount a last-gasp push for their first playoff berth since 2009.With nobody wearing the C that was vacated by Staal, the Hurricanes are counting on multiple voices to help make up for it. Jordan Staal and defenseman Justin Faulk both wore the A as alternate captains last season and they expect their teammates -- even the ones who wont wear a letter -- to step up and take ownership of the team.Some of the players wholl lead either vocally or by example include:- Forward Jeff Skinner. He had team-bests of 28 goals and 51 points, and though hes just 24, the NHLs rookie of the year in 2010 is one of the longest-tenured players on the roster.- Defenseman Ron Hainsey. At 35, he is the oldest player on the roster -- nine years older than the second-oldest defenseman, Matt Tennyson, and has skated in 835 NHL games during his 13-year career.- Cam Ward. While goalies arent captains, Ward is the last remaining link to both the Stanley Cup-winning team in 2006 and to Carolinas last playoff team in 2009. The former Conn Smythe Trophy winner as playoff MVP in 2006 was given a two-year, $6.6 million extension that allowed him to avoid free agency and stay with the only NHL organization hes ever known.There are a lot of guys in the room that lead, and if thats the way it is, I dont think it changes much, Faulk said. Guys are still going to do their same thing, whether there is a captain or not, and thats what weve kind of had the last couple of years, even with some of the older guys.Its been good. ... There always is more than one guy thats doing their part to step up in different ways, he added. Not everyone leads the same way and its good to have a bunch of guys with differing opinions.

In the response filed Wednesday to the complaint by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley, attorneys say the former University of Florida player is invoking his Fifth Amendment right that protects people from incriminating themselves. Wholesale NHL Jerseys Free Shipping . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. NHL Jerseys China . A big centre with all the tools to be an elite player, Johansen paced the Blue Jackets with a standout game Saturday night. He had a goal and two assists for a career-high three points as Columbus beat the New York Islanders 5-2 to snap a five-game losing streak.BOSTON -- Boston ace Clay Buchholz could easily joke about his fielding night with the start hes off to this season. David Ortiz rebounded from a rough first game with a long two-run homer and drove in three runs to help Buchholz improve to 9-0, earning the Red Sox a split of a day-night doubleheader with a 7-2 win over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. Buchholz gave up two runs on six hits, striking out four and walking one over 6 2-3 innings to match Arizonas Patrick Corbin (9-0) as the majors only unbeaten pitcher with at least nine wins, but he left in the seventh with what the team called "neck tightness." It was quite a fielding night for Bostons ace. Howie Kendrick hit a hard grounder off Buchholzs glove in the sixth. It bounced behind the mound and he dropped his glove and raced toward the ball, but Kendrick beat it out. "I think that ball knocked my glove off," he said, adding that when he spun and threw to first he irritated his neck. "It was a little nagging for a couple of innings, right after that ball hit off my glove and I threw to first, it bothered me." Buchholz had another adventure fielding a grounder. In the fourth, Alberto Callaspo hit a high chop toward first, the pitcher got under it, but misplayed it before grabbing it and, while lying on the ground, reached to tag Callaspo before he reached the bag. "I told Salty (catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia) it was the most un-athletic, athletic play Ive ever made," he said. Boston manager John Farrell didnt think the neck problem was anything serious. Buchholz didnt either. Buchholz missed a start last month with an irritation in his collarbone area. The victory snapped Bostons nine-game losing streak against Los Angeles. "We played a good game the first game and this game we didnt do what we needed to do," Los Angeles manager Mike Scioscia said. "I dont know about feeling satisfied. You want to pour your heart into every game and when you dont win, youre disappointed." Ortiz went 0 for 5, struck out twice and stranded six runners in the Red Sox 9-5 loss in the opener. In the first game, Mark Trumbo and Erick Aybar each drove in two runs as the Angels beat the Red Sox for their team-record sixth straight win at Fenway Park. With Boston leading the nightcap 4-2 in the sixth, Dustin Pedroia had an RBI single off reliever Jerome Williams before Ortiz hit a deep homer into the right-field seats, about 20 rows up into the corner. He stood and admired the balls flight before slowly rounding the bases. The Red Sox jumped ahead 2-0 against C.J. Wilson (4-5) with two runs in the first on consecutive RBI doubles by Jonny Gomes and Pedroia. Ortizs RBI double made it 3-0 in the second. After Mike Trouts run-scoring single cut it to 3-1, Boston added an unearned run in the fifth on David Ross RBI single after Mike Napoli reached on an infield hit and advanced on the same play when third baseman Callaspo bounced the throw past first for an error. Wilson gave up four runs -- three earned -- on eight hits, walking three and striking out five in five innings.dddddddddddd In the opener, Tommy Hanson (3-2) allowed two runs in five innings for the win, striking out Ortiz twice and getting him to ground out weakly with two runners on in all three at-bats. "The first at-bat he didnt look very good on the breaking ball. I felt like I threw him a really good one," Hanson said. "Same with the second at-bat. That third time around with the tying run on third, Id rather face Ortiz in that situation than Pedroia, who hit two line drives on me. I threw him a first-pitch slider and he grounded out, which worked out for me." The Angels built a big lead when reliever Franklin Morales walked three straight batters and allowed four runs in the seventh inning, making it 7-2. "I felt like it was an opportunity to get him some work in advance of a potential spot start next week," Farrell said. "Then, obviously, we saw what happened in the seventh inning -- lost the strike zone as we got deeper into (the inning) and that ended up being the difference in todays game." Trout added a pair of doubles high off the Green Monster and collected three hits for the Angels. The Angels went 6-0 overall against the Red Sox last season. Los Angeles won its ninth consecutive game against Boston in the clubs first meeting this year. The game was a makeup from Friday nights rainout. Mike Carp had a solo homer, three hits and drove in two runs for Boston. Daniel Nava added three hits. Felix Doubront (4-3) gave up three runs and six hits over six innings. The Red Sox stranded eight runners in the first four innings-- two in each -- and 14 overall. Boston made it closer by scoring three runs with two outs in the ninth. Ernesto Frieri struck out Jacoby Ellsbury with runners on first and third for his 14th save. Los Angeles held a 3-2 lead until Morales wildness in the seventh. Trumbo had an RBI double before the left-hander threw nine consecutive balls to end his appearance and force home the final two runs. Clayton Mortensen relieved and allowed Aybars infield hit that made it 7-2 before J.B. Shuck hit a flyball for his second out of the inning to end it.
