SOCHI, Russia -- A Ukrainian cross-country skier has failed a doping test, her countrys Olympic committee said Saturday. It is the third positive result of the Sochi Games. Marina Lisogor tested positive for trimetazidine, which is classified as a "specified stimulant" on the World Anti-Doping Agencys prohibited list. Specified substances are considered more susceptible to inadvertent use and can carry reduced penalties. The 30-year-old Lisogor competed in two cross-country events in Sochi, finishing far out of the medals. According to the Ukrainian Olympic Committee, Lisogor said she did not knowingly take a banned substance. Lisogors failed drug test follows those of German biathlete Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle and Italian bobsledder William Frullani. All three drug-test failures are tied to stimulants. The IOC is conducting 2,453 drug tests in Sochi, a record for the Winter Games. The Olympic body also stores Olympic doping samples for 10 years to allow for retesting when new methods become available. Sachenbacher-Stehle, a former two-time Olympic gold medallist , tested positive for methylhexanamine in both samples. The German Olympic Committee said she was being sent home. She blamed a nutritional supplement and said she had never knowingly taken performance-enhancing drugs. "I am going through the worst nightmare that you can imagine because I am unable to explain at all how there could be a positive test," she said Friday. Frullani was ejected from the games after testing positive for dimetylpentylamine. Frullani, who had not competed yet, asked for a backup test that confirmed the result. The Italian Olympic Committee told The Associated Press it believed Frullani, a former decathlete, bought the stimulant on the Internet from the United States since it is not available in Italy.

Fittingly, perhaps, the name was apparently coined by none other than Roger Federer, in a tweet of support for his friend which quickly caught on earlier in the tournament. Wholesale NFL Jerseys .

The fans at Estadio Rommel Fernandez in Panama City were ready to start a nationwide celebration. And then the Americans stunned not just an opponent, but an entire country.(Sports Network) - Thanks to an explosive offensive attack, the Canadiens finally gave head coach Randy Cunneyworth his first NHL win in their last trip to the ice. Montreal will try to keep the scoring going tonight, as it visits the Tampa Bay Lightning for a battle at St. Pete Times Forum. The Canadiens had lost five in a row heading into Tuesdays game in Ottawa and the previous four came since Cunneyworth took over behind the bench for the fired Jacques Martin. Montreal ended the skid in convincing fashion on Tuesday, however, as the Habs trounced the Senators, 6-2, in Ottawa. Lars Ellers short-handed goal in the first period started the offensive showcase for Montreal, which is 1-3 on a six-game road trip. The Canadiens scored five consecutive goals, starting with Ellers at 5:08 of the first period and ending with P.K. Subbans 5:53 into the second. The outburst allowed Montreal to earn its first victory since December 13 against the New York Islanders. The Habs had scored only nine goals during their five-game slide and they bounced back from last Thursdays shutout in Winnipeg. "I just wanted to get in there and contribute and it felt good to do that today. The whole team was going and we finally had a lot of bounces that went our way," Eller told the Canadiens official website. "The floodgates opened for us a little bit; we got one, then we got two and they just kept coming from there." Carey Price made 33 saves in the win, improving his record to 12-12-7 this season. Despite the poor record, Price is sporting a solid 2.44 goals-against average and .914 save percentage this season. Price gets the start in goal tonight. "Hes been doing a good job for us," Price said of Cunneyworth. "We havent been playing up to par, so it was really good to be able to get that one for him." Montreaal is 9-9-1 on the road this season and will close its road trip Saturday against the Florida Panthers.dddddddddddd. The Lightning also had a strong offensive showing in a home test against Philadelphia on Tuesday. Steven Stamkos netted a pair of goals, giving him 22 on the season to match Marian Gaborik of the New York Rangers for the NHL lead, and Tampa cruised to a 5-1 victory. Mathieu Garon stopped 31-of-32 shots for the win. Garon began this season as the clear No. 2 option behind Dwayne Roloson, but he has taken over the job for now with 14 starts in Tampa Bays last 16 outings. Bruno Gervais, Steve Downie and Vincent Lecavalier also scored for the Lightning, who had dropped two in a row and four of six coming into the game before torching Flyers netminder Ilya Bryzgalov for five goals on just 16 shots. "It was huge. We talked about what kind of game it was going to be, how strong offensively they were and how we needed to take away their time and space," Stamkos said. "It wasnt pretty out there but well take the win and hopefully it will lead to something good from here." Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman left Tuesdays game after colliding with the end boards in the first period and did not return. He is not expected to play tonight. Fellow blueliner Eric Brewer also left the game briefly after taking several hard punches in a second-period fight with Philadelphias Wayne Simmonds, but he was able to return. Tampa Bay, which is playing the middle portion of a three-game homestand tonight, is 9-5-0 as the host team this season. This evenings test marks the first of four meetings between the Habs and Bolts this year. The clubs split four encounters in 2010-11 and each club has three victories in the last six matchups at the St. Pete Times Forum. ' ' '
